Forbes recently revealed that American taxpayers sent over $3.5 Billion to the World Health Organization (WHO) during the past decade.
President Donald Trump has blasted the WHO for covering up information regarding the deadliness of the Wuhan virus and its capacity to be transmitted from human-to-human contact. Trump eventually decided to suspend contributions to the WHO.
The WHO leadership congratulated China for its response to the outbreak and alleged decisiveness in identifying it and providing the necessary information to the health organization.
The White House, Office of Management and Budget provided Forbes a fact sheet breaking down the WHO’s “corruption and abuse.”
According to Forbes auditors at OpenTheBooks.com, $3.5 billion in taxpayer dollars funded the WHO in this time period.
Only $611.1 million of said funding came from “assessed dues” that participant countries have to pay.
On a voluntary basis, the WHO sent the U.S. government roughly $2.9 billion more than what was required of them in contributions. Unsurprisingly, the U.S. is the largest contributor to the WHO.
Even in the Trump era, federal funding of the WHO stayed strong.
In the Forbes’ findings, the WHO received more money under Trump’s watch than Obama when adjusted for inflation — $1.4 billion as opposed to $1.1 billion.
Since 2010, the Agency for International Development (USAID) was the federal agency with the most grants to the WHO — at roughly $1.5 billion.
The U.S. Department of State contributed $820 million to the WHO after 2010.
With the current pandemic raging on, more Americans are beginning to question the merits of globalism and globalist institutions like the WHO.
Getting down to the bottom of how much Americans are paying for these flawed institutions is a good first step in bringing about reforms.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
