(LifeSiteNews) — The United States House of Representatives has passed a bill that would put an end to the nation’s COVID jab mandate for foreign air travelers.
On Wednesday the chamber agreed to pass H.R. 185, spearheaded by Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky, by a 227-201 vote. Seven Democrats crossed party lines to vote in favor of the bill. No Republicans voted against the bill.
H.R. 185 states that the U.S. government would no longer be able to enforce a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) order requiring foreign air travelers to demonstrate proof of COVID vaccination. The CDC’s order is an implementation of President Joe Biden’s “proclamation advancing the safe resumption of global travel during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The bill also blocks the CDC from implementing a “successor order” that would establish a similar proof of vaccination requirement.
In a Wednesday statement, Massie praised his fellow House members for supporting an end to the CDC’s “unscientific mandate.”
“No free country, other than the United States, requires international visitors to prove they’ve taken the COVID-19 vaccine,” he said. “This vaccine mandate is keeping families separated, hurting our economy, and preventing some of the best athletes in the world from competing here. We need to join the rest of the free world in returning to normal.”
The WHO Pandemic Treaty looks set to be one of the biggest power-grabs in living memory, with unelected globalists seeking the power to declare pandemics, and then control your country's response.
But it's not too late to do something about it.
SIGN and SHARE this special petition telling Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that the WHO will never usurp your nation's sovereignty.
The past two years have been rife with infringements on personal liberties and civil rights by national governments, but now the World Health Organization is seeking to appropriate those same abusive powers to itself at a global level.
194 member states representing 99% of the world's population are expected to sign pandemic treaties with the WHO that would allow Tedros, or any future Director General, to dictate exactly how your nation would respond to a new disease outbreak which they consider a pandemic.
This attack on national sovereignty will come as no surprise to those who for years have listened to elites like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates discussing their vision for the centralization of power into globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF), the WHO and the rest of the United Nations.
SIGN this petition against the WHO's Pandemic Treaty, before it's too late.
Ludicrously, 20 world leaders calling for the treaty, including Tedros, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron, compared the post-Covid world to the post-WWII period, saying similar co-operation is now needed to "dispel the temptations of isolationism and nationalism, and to address the challenges that could only be achieved together in the spirit of solidarity and co-operation - namely peace, prosperity, health and security."
Australian PM Scott Morrison is the latest leader to express support for a “pandemic treaty”.
The stated intention of the WHO is to “kickstart a global process to draft and negotiate a convention, agreement or other international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.”
The wheels are already in motion, with the Biden administration officially proposing the initial steps towards handing global pandemic control to the WHO.
Biden's representatives have submitted amendments to the WHO's International Health Regulations (IHR), which would give the Director General the right to declare health emergencies in any nation, even when disputed by the country in question.
These amendments, which would be legally binding under international law, will be voted on by the World Health Assembly (the governing body of the WHO) at a special convention running from May 22-28 and set the stage for a fully-fledged pandemic treaty to be passed.
SIGN and SHARE the petition telling the WHO that you won't accept any pandemic treaty
The ball has been rolling since the last World Health Assembly meeting in December, where the United States launched negotiations "on a new international health instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response," a U.S. statement read.
"This momentous step represents our collective responsibility to work together to advance health security and to make the global health system stronger and more responsive.
"We look forward to broad and deep negotiations using a whole-of-society and whole-of-government approach that will strengthen the international legal framework for public health/pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response and enable us to address issues of equity, accountability, and multisectoral collaboration evident in the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We know it will take all of us working together across governments, private sector, philanthropy, academia, and civil society to make rapid progress towards a long-term solution for these complex problems," the U.S. statement added.
SIGN the petition today to show the WHO that you won't accept this attack on national sovereignty.
These are precarious times in which freedom and self-determination must be defended from those who would ride rough-shod over your civil rights.
We do not want to go back to global lockdowns, vaccine mandates and propoganda.
Sign the petition - speak up now!

The American travel industry has been advocating for an end to the proof of vaccination requirement. According to government data, the level of international travel to the United States is still far below what it was prior to the pandemic.
Tori Emerson Barnes, the U.S. Travel Association’s executive vice president of public affairs and policy, penned a statement last week supporting the introduction of H.R. 185.
“We have long supported the removal of this requirement and see no reason to wait until the May expiration of the public health emergency — particularly as potential visitors are planning spring and summer travel,” she said. “Every day this policy remains in place encourages some travelers to avoid the U.S., costing us valuable visitor spending and delaying our efforts to reignite inbound travel.”
Although the White House has announced the upcoming end of the nation’s twin COVID emergencies in May, it nevertheless opposes the passage of H.R. 185 because “science” needs to first establish the right time for a “termination or modification” of the foreign vaccination requirement.
“As we approach the end of the public health emergency, the Administration will review all relevant policies, including this one,” the White House said, according to The Hill. “Just as the establishment of this public health policy was guided by science, any termination or modification of this policy should be as well. A vote for this bill undercuts that critical principle.”
The bill now heads to the Democratic-controlled Senate.
