The Lead: The Pandemic Is Over, But We'll Keep The Power
The World Health Organization has declared that the pandemic is over and that the public health emergency should end.
This comes three years and four months after Covid was declared a public health emergency of international concern. This does not mean that the WHO has let go of the power that it held during the pandemic. On the contrary, the organization is pushing full-steam ahead with a resolution that would allow it to usurp most countries’ own laws if and when another pandemic occurs. A vote on this is due in a matter of weeks once the WHO proposes the final draft of the pandemic treaty.
The head of the WHO, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says that the organization will not hesitate to declare another global health emergency again if they deem it necessary.
Meanwhile, Rochelle Walensky, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, resigned on Friday. She said that the end of the pandemic is a good time for the CDC to make a transition.
Syria has been voted back into the Arab League. The country was voted out in 2011 after an outbreak of war and a Western-led regime change attempt on President Bashar al-Assad.
Foreign ministers from 13 of the league’s 22 member states attended a meeting to vote on the matter. Due to the vote, President al-Assad will be able to attend the next Arab League meeting in Saudi Arabia later this month.
In 2011, the United States backed the Al Qaeda faction of Al-Nusra to rise up against the government. The Syrian government fought back and the Western world called them a violent regime for doing what any other government would do to put down a violent uprising. The media bought into the lie of Syria launching gas attacks on their own people and the U.S. promoted crushing“sanctions of mass destruction” on the Syrian people, many of which remain in place despite the recent earthquake and need.

What Are We Being Told To Believe?
protestors storm the tracks in NYC after the death of Jordan Neely credit: twitter
The death of a homeless man on a New York City subway has sparked protests and a vitriolic race war. The 30-year-old man named Jordan Neely was getting loud and threatening on an F train when he was put in a chokehold by an ex-Marine named Daniel Penny. He died hours later in the hospital.
A video that made the rounds last week showed Penny and two other men holding Neely down in a chokehold. It prompted liberal voices to call this a racially motivated killing, simple as that. But is it as simple as that?
Passengers say that Neely was yelling and threatening other people “in an aggressive manner” and yelling that he “had no food, he had no drink, that he was tired and doesn't care if he goes to jail," Vazquez said. Neely was known for being aggressive by people NYC Subway regulars and had at least 42 prior arrests, some for assault.
New video shows that Penny and two other men put Neely in a recovery position and that he was still alive when they left him. Still, protestors want to call this a racial killing and reminiscent of racial lynching. Major protests and disruptions raged through the city with calls for justice including this one where a black man was stopped from riding the train by protestors.
A grand jury will meet today to decide if Penny will be charged in the incident.
It’s a sad state of affairs but we must ask ourselves: what are we being invited to conclude if we rush to judgment along racial lines? What are the implications of charging or not charging Penny? This problem requires far more nuance than a racial call to arms on Twitter. Clearly.
