Speaking at the treaty at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, last week, World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus called on countries to prepare for “Disease X” by signing on to the United Nations organization’s pandemic treaty.

“‘Disease X’ is a placeholder for an unknown pathogen that could cause a global emergency,” Ghebreyesus said on X, formerly Twitter. “History has taught us that we must anticipate new threats. Failing to prepare leaves the world prepared to fail.”

“The pandemic agreement can bring all the experience, all the challenges that we have faced, and all the solutions into one. And that agreement can help us to prepare for the future in a better way because this is a common enemy and without a shared response, starting from the preparedness you know we will face the same problem as COVID,” Ghebreyesus said.

The deadline for the agreement is May 2024, reports Just The News.

“It’s better actually to anticipate something that may happen, because it has happened in our history many times, and prepare for it. We shouldn’t face things unprepared,” Ghebreyesus also said.

Internal docs show Amazon censored books on vaccinations due to pressure from Biden White House

Recently released internal Amazon emails reveal the company caved to pressure from the Biden White House to suppress available vaccine information.

Provided to the House Judiciary Committee, the emails light on the extent of the Biden White House’s influence over the retail giant regarding vaccine-related content. The emails disclose a concerning narrative of pressure from government officials to suppress information deemed unfavorable to their agenda.

Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio took to Twitter to disclose the findings, stating that the emails reveal direct pressure from the White House on Amazon to censor books expressing views contrary to those endorsed by the administration. One email, albeit redacted, explicitly poses the question of whether the administration requested the removal of certain books, to which the answer was affirmative.

National Review highlights the successful efforts of the Biden administration in persuading Amazon to limit the visibility of titles skeptical of vaccine efficacy. White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response, Andrew Slavitt, expressed concerns about Amazon’s role in propagating what he termed as “misinformation” regarding vaccines. His emails illustrate a push for action to address what he perceived as a proliferation of dissenting views.

In response to Slavitt’s inquiries, Amazon initially hesitated to take overt action, fearing backlash from conservative media outlets. The company’s internal deliberations reflect a concern for public perception and the potential amplification of the issue if intervention were too conspicuous.

Despite initially refraining from manual intervention, Amazon eventually succumbed to pressure, engaging in discussions with White House officials. The company’s internal documents reveal deliberations on whether the administration sought outright book bans or alterations to search results. Amazon’s stance, as expressed in their meeting with the White House, emphasized the provision of diverse viewpoints and the distinction between online retail and social media platforms.
