President Joe Biden said on Monday that his government is “considering” eliminating certain Trump-era trade tariffs being levied on China as a way to alleviate inflationary pressures in the US.
Biden landed in Japan on Sunday after visiting South Korea on his first tour to the Indo-Pacific region as president. His objective was to establish “American leadership in a critical region” while also delivering a “strong message” to China.
Biden indicated that talks on removing China trade tariffs were underway during a press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.
“I’m thinking about it.” None of those tariffs were imposed by us. He informed reporters that they were imposed by the previous administration and that they are being evaluated.
In 2018, former US President Donald Trump placed tariffs on China of up to 25% to counteract what he deemed the Chinese regime’s unfair trade practices. In retaliation, Beijing levied tariffs on the United States.
On May 18, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen remarked that parts of the Trump administration’s tariffs “aren’t particularly strategic” in terms of tackling unfair trade practices, national security concerns, and supply chain vulnerabilities.
Despite admitting the “diversity of reasonable concerns” raised about the China tariff removal, Yellen stated that the tariffs imposed on China appear to be inflicting greater harm to American consumers and enterprises.
“I believe that taking away some tariffs may provide some relief, not just because of inflation, but also because some tariffs would benefit consumers and businesses.” However, we’re having these debates. She told reporters, “There are a range of repercussions.”
Sen. Bill Hagerty, speaking on the subject, stated that eliminating the China trade tariffs would remove “the only leverage that we have right now to push China to more normalized trade relations.”
“That makes China laugh all the way to the bank.” When you look at our energy policy in the United States, it’s a great benefit to China,” Hagerty told Fox Business.
According to Hagerty, who served as the United States’ ambassador to Japan from 2017 to 2019, there was no “rampant inflation” as a result of the tariffs’ adoption, but Washington had leverage.
“I understand Katherine Tai, the current [US] trade representative’s aversion to doing this. It’s just another trick employed by the Biden administration. He continued, “Again, a net benefit to China.”
The US Trade Representative said in a federal register notice on May 3 that it will begin a statutory procedure building up to the four-year anniversary of the original “Section 301” tariffs on Chinese goods.
During the review process, feedback from domestic industries that have benefited from the tariff action will be collected.
“If one or more requests for continuation are received, USTR will issue an additional notice after July 6 announcing the tariff action’s continuation and will proceed with a tariff review,” it said.
By this point we should all be well aware that President Joe Biden is bought and paid for by the Chinese Communist Party. Sleepy Joe has given America the short end of the stick time and time again when it comes to China. We’re not talking about policy decisions that can be perceived subjectively. The examples displayed by Biden are objectively tantamount to treason. Yet, here we sit; Paralyzed, nobody is parading the streets calling to impeach this vegetable from the oval office. Why? Because let’s be realistic here, Biden isn’t the source of the problem.
The word of God is infallible, and it tells you in Ephesians 6:12: “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” This battle is fought over our heads, as followers of Christ it is not our job to go out and call for violence against our political adversaries. Prophecy is prophecy, and if the current state of humanity dictates that we be persecuted and impoverished for the sake of the fulfillment of the word of God, so be it. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
The administration of Vice President Joe Biden is pushing for changes to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) governing regulations that would grant Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus unilateral authority to declare a public health emergency in any country based on whatever evidence he chooses.
The proposed US revisions were sent to the WHO in January and will be discussed during the UN’s 75th World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland, next week.
Loyce Pace, Assistant Secretary for Global Affairs at the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), wrote to a virtual meeting of WHO’s executive board on January 26 about “the importance of equity and equitable access to medical countermeasures and the negative impacts of misinformation and disinformation related to the pandemic.” We all agree that we need to improve.
“To create this decision, the United States led an open and transparent approach, as we are cognizant that updating and modernizing the [International Health Regulations] IHR is vital to ensuring the world is better prepared for and can respond to the next epidemic.”
One of the proposed US revisions eliminates a requirement in Section 9 that WHO “consult with and seek verification” from officials in a country where a health crisis is suspected before making any public announcements. The same amendment states that “WHO may consider reports from sources other than notifications or consultations” from the suspected issue country.
According to a suggested modification to Section 5, WHO should create “early warning criteria for assessing and gradually upgrading the national, regional, or global risk presented by an occurrence of unknown origins or sources…”
In the case that the nation with the suspected problem does not comply within 48 hours, a proposed modification to Section 10 compels WHO to “immediately communicate with other [nations] the information accessible to it, where warranted by the extent of the public health risk.”
The changes and supporting materials make no mention of how or why US public health authorities believe providing Tedros the right to declare a public health emergency based on information from a source other than the afflicted countries will address the equality issue in health care.
Only one veiled mention to the WHO revisions was located on the White House Press Office website. The White House said in a February 2 Fact Sheet that the US “would continue to promote health security and pandemic preparation overseas, particularly by strengthening WHO and engaging with partners on targeted IHR changes…”
The proposed revision to Section 5 of the WHO rules appears to correspond to a statement made by the Biden administration in a Fact Sheet on its planned federal budget for 2023, which was released in April.
The Biden administration has committed to supporting “global threat detection innovations through a globally connected network of public health surveillance systems that optimizes disease prevention and health promotion as we strengthen surveillance initiatives to provide necessary actionable data before, during, and after a pandemic.”
“CDC will receive $2.47 billion in mandated funding to improve domestic sentinel surveillance programs, expand domestic and worldwide wastewater surveillance, and invest in global genomic surveillance techniques and global respiratory disease surveillance platforms,” according to the budget.
Video cameras and recorders are used in respiratory surveillance platforms to inform authorities when members of the public are spotted coughing or acting in a way that might signal the existence of an infectious illness or help spread one that is already prevalent in the community. In China, such equipment is commonly utilized.
The Biden WHO changes are the next move in the current president’s efforts to reintegrate the United States with WHO after his predecessor in the White House, Donald Trump, cut funds to the international health agency and then announced the United States’ exit.
One of Biden’s first acts as president was to reverse Trump’s withdrawal notice and restore US financing to WHO, which accounts for half of the organization’s budget. Trump’s anger with WHO arose from what he perceived as the organization’s overwhelming deference to China when it came to the genesis of the CCP Virus, also known as the Coronavirus Novel, or COVID-19.
The White House did not reply to The Epoch Times’ request for details on the revisions and the administration’s reasoning behind them. A spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services did not reply to The Epoch Times’ request for comment.
However, opponents of the reforms, such as Dr. Peter Breggin, have not been shy in commenting on the proposed changes.
“The revisions would give WHO the power to take crucial steps to engage with other governments and other organizations globally to deal with any nation’s supposed health issue, even against its declared intentions,” Breggin wrote in a May 4 piece under the byline Ginger Ross Breggin.
“The ability to proclaim health crises might be used to shame, intimidate, and rule countries.” It can be used to justify ostracism and economic or financial sanctions on the targeted country by other countries associated with WHO or who want to hurt and control the accused country,” Breggin stated.
Peter Breggin is a Harvard-educated psychiatrist, former US Public Health Service official, and former NIMH consultant. Ginger Ross Breggin is a journalist, author, and proponent of medical reform.
“The American people need to express concern with the White House, especially as our President represents us on the world stage, we need an explanation of what you are doing here and why,” Travis Weber, Vice-President for Policy and Government Affairs at the Family Research Center in Washington, D.C., told The Epoch Times.
“We need reporters to question them at a news conference what are they proposing and actually get them to explain it,” Weber said, adding that Biden administration officials “haven’t really talked about this.” People may voice their concerns to the White House and to their representatives of Congress, and we urge Members of Congress to challenge the administration to explain themselves. “What is going on, what are you suggesting, and why?” is the first part of this.
Similarly, Matt Staver, Founder and Chairman of the Florida-based Liberty Counsel public interest law firm, told The Epoch Times that if the US decided not to cooperate with WHO on a possible health emergency and “say you had Trump back in office who wants to pull out, or you have somebody else who doesn’t want to deal with WHO, they could bring it before the International Court at the Hague for fines or some other form of restriction,” he could bring it before the International Court at the Hague for fine They might work together with their other member countries to take acts related to supply, data exchange, or other trade documents, and who knows what the ramifications would be.”
In a statement released on May 12, Liberty Counsel also noted that a UN study released in May 2021 indicated that the Coronavirus pandemic may have been averted if the world health institution had more authority.
Nations that refuse to comply with WHO should be given “an adjustable incentive system, including punishments such as public reprimands, economic sanctions, or denial of benefits,” according to the paper.
These organizations exist to be utilized, they’ve got the whole world talking about them now. At the most audacious time in history possible, (right after a “pandemic”) the World Health Organization takes a step into the spotlight with near communist China style “solutions”. I don’t recall having ever heard of someone asking for a “great reset”. Society has become far too complex for these globalists to assume that we can’t see something like this coming. The year is 2022, perhaps the early 2000’s would have been a great time to unravel this plan of turmoil on society. At least back then people believed the news, these days we have grown adults dressing up in furry animal suits who are too detached from reality to bother taking a look at current events.
No one man can make sense of this elaborate illusion cast over the common man of society, but collectively we can point out each limitation forced upon us and bring it forward as an injustice to the public. In Matthew 10:34 Jesus says: “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.” We’re meant to go down preaching the gospel and guiding others to salvation. This could be considered the bravest task a man or woman of faith could undertake, but make no mistake it will bear fruit in the kingdom of heaven. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
