Get US Out! of the United Nations

Stop the WHO’s Proposed Pandemic Treaty

by John F. McManus, President Emeritus

The United Nations never ceases to find ways to build its steadily growing power over mankind. For example, UNESCO works to propagandize children’s schooling and detach people from their traditional cultures. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has plans for a world currency that it will manage. UNICEF intends to teach everyone how to raise children in a New World Order. The UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) intends to manage business relationships. The UN’s list of methods to gain power is enormous.

Many more of the UN’s agencies, bureaus, commissions, and conferences aim to control mankind in various spheres. Each has the same unstated goal: World power over everyone. The various UN subdivisions differ only in how to subdue the people of this world while making slaves of everyone.

The latest move toward the UN’s frightening goal is a global pandemic treaty slated for adoption in 2024. By scaring people into believing that another pandemic — or a continuation of Covid-19 — will occur, and that the World Health Organization (WHO) needs authority to deal with it, this scheme would strengthen the UN’s authority over mankind. Although we don’t yet know the specific details of this proposed treaty, we can expect it to vastly empower the WHO while further enabling worldwide medical tyranny.

Additionally, the U.S. has proposed amendments to the WHO’s International Health Regulations (IHR), which could go into effect as soon as the end of this year. These amendments would also strengthen the organization’s ability to take unilateral actions and meddle in countries’ internal affairs, and could lead to an expansion of the CDC’s power to detain Americans for medical reasons. More information about both WHO schemes can be found at

Enough is already known about the origin and spread of Covid to shun placing medical power in the WHO’s hands. Additionally, its current leader, Ethiopia’s Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who does not possess a medical degree, is a renegade communist who played a key role in the criminal Tigray Peoples’ Liberation Front (TPLF). A U.S. government watchdog organization has accused the TPLF of murders, kidnappings, terror attacks, and other crimes against religious figures, journalists, and owners of private property. It is hardly a surprise to learn that Tedros was awarded his significant UN perch with considerable backing from Communist China.

As has always been a JBS recommendation, withdrawal from the United Nations and all its subdivisions is imperative. No one who values personal and national freedom and understands what has already been demonstrated by the UN over the years, wants our nation to have any association with this would-be world ruler and its many routes to tyranny.

Perhaps the most determined living advocate of UN rule in a New World Order is former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. His support for world government via the UN is hardly a secret. When the Covid-19 pandemic arrived in early 2020, he quickly produced a revealing column published in the April 3, 2020 issue of The Wall Street Journal with the highly indicative title “The Coronavirus Pandemic Will Forever Alter the World Order.” In this article, Kissinger insisted, “Addressing the necessities of the moment must ultimately be coupled with a global collaborative vision and program.” One way of looking at Kissinger’s pronouncement is to conclude that he knew what was coming from the spread of the disease and he quickly recommended how it should be employed to reach the long-held goal he shares with other New World Order advocates.

The latest maneuver leading to creation of a UN-led New World Order is WHO’s intention to use Covid-19 to promote acceptance of a need for a global pandemic treaty. This squares nicely with Kissinger’s early call for spreading fear about Covid in order to create a New World Order, and it parallels Tedros Ghebreyesus’ desire to achieve this goal via the UN’s newly conceived call for a world treaty.

What should every member of The John Birch Society do about this additional threat to personal freedom and national sovereignty? The answer: Help fellow Americans understand the need to fully withdraw from the UN. There are three steps every member can take:

1. Contact your U.S. representative and senators and urge them to reintroduce and support the American Sovereignty Restoration Act. It would withdraw our nation from the UN and every associated agency, and by extension rescind any support for a global pandemic treaty. You can use JBS’s legislative alert for this, at

2. Contact your state legislators and urge them to enact strong legislation fully preventing the implementation and/or enforcement of the WHO’s proposed pandemic treaty and the proposed U.S. amendments to the IHR. State governments have an important role in preserving liberty and upholding the Constitution. To easily contact your legislators, use JBS’s legislative alert, at

3. Reach out to others in your community (including at your place of worship, booths at local fairs, and other convenient locations) with introductory information about the UN and its inherent threat to liberty. Obtain and distribute such items as the “Top Ten Reasons Why the U.S. Should Get Out of the UN” reprint and slim jim, available at

A great many Americans have become nervous about the way our current leaders are steering the nation. These are good people who have become more receptive to explanations about what is occurring and how to get back to sensible leadership. Please do not delay in educating them about the UN and showing them the necessity of full withdrawal.
