So... can we throw Trump & Mitch in jail yet and let them rot there? and then public trials for all the other monsters that supported those two degenerate meat sacks that genuinely tried to take over the government.. You know the American armed forces are sworn to protect threats both foreign and domestic...

Hopefully Biden will reverse the decision, and as soon as possible. T$$$$ has shown himself to be a clear and present danger both to the USA and the rest of the world. I know Biden has no intention of going after him for all his crimes, and I actually understand why (imagine if doing that was a common occurrence - something which could happen if it happens just the once - any former president, no matter how good they'd been, could find themselves targeted by the next administration for spite. The government in power is in an excellent position to plant fake "evidence" of "crimes" Just picture what T$$$$ could have done to Obama had precedent been set!). But there's nothing stopping any state doing the job where necessary. Good luck New York!

the world health organization cites old reports and doesnt do their research anymore. they claim wrong facts all the time. same with BBC, news, police departments, governments, etc... The neoliberal system promotes no research and content to make money via advertizing while it kills off the small well researched companies.

13:20 Please clarify. How can there be "indoor airborne transmission" if this IS NOT an airborne virus? (Airborne = droplets 0.5 microns and below carry an infectious viral load. The stuff disaster movies are made of.) The only way that could happen is if you are indoors, one or more persons are not wearing a mask, wearing it improperly (e.g. - nose out), or wearing a mask with a valve. And that certain someone sneezes. Or maybe something even rarer. Like pulling out a pressurized breathing tube. (Obviously a big no-no.) Proper wearing of the right types of masks (a surgical one will do) is protecting us. Social distancing is EVIL SOCIAL ENGINEERING. Before you jump on my figurative throat try to find out what was the original, the very first, rationale for those six feet was. It had to do with coughing (very thick droplets) WITHOUT A MASK. But perhaps by now the it is possible that the CDC, and/or other health authorities may be saying something else to keep up the charade.

They do pay the most and can decide where and on what that money is spent on, so with that comes a lot of influence. And the usa is probably not the only one fiddling their covid numbers. Honestly it is just the way things have always been and it never was an issue before.

Mind you, the WHO has been extorted by the nuclear power industry and are forbidden to alert the world about nuclear effects on health in the world, including the effects of The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, and many more that are also not reported in detail and are covered up. I'm not saying that it is not necessary, just that it is fallible.

At least this won't go through. I suspect one of the first things Biden will do is cancel the withdrawal of the US from the WHO. Actually, being from the UK, the phrase ' does have problems, but the solution clearly isn't to walk away, it's to try and fix them, and the only way for to have a say in how that happens is to have a seat at the table and we're about to give that up' is oddly familiar.....

350M$ is a large number to 1 person. 350$ to the 500M Meridians is less that a soda, for a whole year. But policunts love to splint large scaway numbers at people when all you need to do is simply work out the basics of maths to see that those big numbers are actually small as hell.

Kudos to acknowledging the past successes of the WHO, but their past performance can't possibly forgive their mishandling of the biggest challenge they have likely faced. Their trustworthiness is critical to being able to diplomatically manage global health issues, but I think you overlooked the fact that diplomacy doesn't work with the CCP and XI made a fool out of Tedros. Saying it's OK that the WHO misread the Coronavirus because Trump did too is setting a pretty low bar for them don't you think? Trump's stupidity has cost hundreds of thousands of American lives, The WHO' naïveté dealing with China on this has cost millions of lives globally, not to mention the global financial massacre. I absolutely hate Trump, but if threatening the WHO is what it takes to get them to stop listening to the CCP propaganda it might actually be a good thing.

Just want to jump in on the 'literally' debate. We have to accept that this word is in the process of changing its meaning. This is how languages evolve. The frustrating thing is it also means that we're also losing that word's primary function due to the increasing prevalence of fuckheads in our society, who need to add emotional qualifiers to every insignificant moment of their lives!

@JohnOliver.. First of all.. US should NOT quit the WHO... and Trump is a stupid, egotistical moron.. but your show has started ignoring facts just to criticise Trump.. a few facts which I think were relevant.. 1) Current head of WHO was elected with support of China over US 2) In January-20 despite growing worldwide alarm WHO simply parroted China's assurance that Covid is not airborne and a worldwide problem.. despite Wuhan already being under lockdown.. it did not fact check anything.. nor did it press China to allow an independent team to investigate.. not did ito advise a travel ban to/from China.. If we're anyways just going to take the word of dictatorships like China.. then WHO is not fulfilling its role.. This is in contrast with handling of earlier SARS/MERS (1 of them) outbreak a few years back.. under a different head.. who ADVISED TRAVEL BANS AGAINST CHINA and helped stop the their spread.. which the current head should have done or at least not given a carte blanche just on China's say so..

No the WHO did NOT say that. On 14 Jan the WHO (in just a single tweet) passed on what they had been misleadingly told by the Chinese authorities who, at the time, were aggressively suppressing accurate reporting of the situation in Wuhan. "Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China" A WHO team arrived in Wuhan on 20 Jan and within 48 hours promulgated that human transmission WAS happening AND convened their Emergency Committee.

Figure out a good compromise, make sure the money is used well enough and for things most if not all countries would like it to be used, and don't let yourself be the doormat, but also don't be a Trump. Easier said than done, sure, but it's worth trying...

Germany and France are going to pay more to the WHO, Germany will then pay 500 Million Euro. So about as much as the US does. With this we will also pay for protection gear for other countries. Because if you have a world-wide problem everyone has a problem and the more countries cannot face this properly are also endangering us. No time for political tactics. Reforms can be made later.
