Attempting Action to Hold the WHO and China Accountable

Washington, D.C. - January 23, 2020 - (The Ponder News) -- U.S. House Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO, 3rd) introduced legislation to hold the World Health Organization (WHO) and China accountable for their role in the global COVID-19 pandemic on Friday.

"The WHO is China-centric and panders to Beijing at every turn. There is no reason U.S. taxpayers should contribute more than $400 million annually to an organization that covered for China and failed to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We must not let the Chinese Communist Party off the hook. We must hold the WHO accountable. Joe Biden failed to do either of those things and his edict yesterday only emboldens Beijing. Rejoining the WHO without ensuring accountability for the American people is the wrong move,” stated Boebert.

Thursday, Joe Biden signed an executive order reversing President Trump's decision to leave the WHO.

Friday, U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (CO-03) introduced her first three bills as a Member of Congress.

H.R. 374, the World Health Organization Accountability Act, ensures America holds both the WHO and China accountable for their failures that contributed to the outbreak of COVID-19.

The text of the bill can be viewed HERE.

Members of Congress that cosponsored H.R. 374 so far include Representatives: Andy Biggs (AZ-05), Tedd Budd (NC-13), Madison Cawthorn (NC-11), Jeff Duncan (SC-03), Matt Gaetz (FL-01), Jody Hice (GA-10), Ralph Norman (SC-05), David Rouzer (NC-07), and Elise Stefanik (NY-21).

H.R. 374 prohibits contributions to the WHO until the State Department and Health and Human Services conduct a thorough investigation into the activities by the WHO and the Government of the People’s Republic of China that contributed to global COVID–19 pandemic.

Media reports indicate China initially downplayed and covered up the seriousness of the COVID-19 outbreak which resulted in a three-week delay in responding to the virus and a corresponding inability to contain it.

If China had been forthright, estimates suggest we might have seen 95 percent fewer cases and perhaps averted the global pandemic

Doctors in Wuhan knew in early December 2019 that there was a problem, but China did not notify the WHO until December 31st. China also refused to let the WHO in to investigate the growing epidemic. For its part, the WHO provided cover for China’s missteps and even participated in spreading its disinformation.

The U.S. was the largest single donor to the WHO in 2019 and reportedly gave more than $400 million. This contribution represents nearly 15% of the WHO’s entire budget.

Attempt to Block Paris Climate Agreement

Washington, D.C. - January 23, 2020 - (The Ponder News) -- Lauren Boebert (R-CO, 3rd) has introduced the Paris Agreement Constitutional Treaty Act to try to block Biden from re-entering the Paris Climate Accord.

"My bill prohibits Congress from spending a single penny on the Paris Agreement until this treaty is ratified by the United States Senate. Joe Biden took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution. If he wants to keep it, he must transmit the job-killing Paris Agreement to the U.S. Senate for ratification. Unilaterally entering the Paris Agreement was wrong in 2016 and it's wrong now. Responsible energy production supports more than 230,000 Colorado jobs. The Paris Agreement puts these jobs at risk and will increase energy costs. $4 per gallon gasoline, here we go again!" said, Boebert.

Friday, U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (CO-03) introduced her first three bills as a Member of Congress.

H.R. 376, the Paris Agreement Constitutional Treaty Act, blocks all actions and funds for carrying out the Paris Agreement until a treaty is passed by the U.S. Senate.

The text of the bill can be viewed HERE.

Original cosponsors that joined Representative Boebert in introducing her bill include Representatives: Andy Biggs (AZ-05), Mo Brooks (AL-05), Tedd Budd (NC-13), Ben Cline (VA-06), Bob Good VA-05), Yvette Herrell (NM-02), Doug LaMalfa (CA-01), Mary Miller (IL-15), Alex Mooney (WV-02), August Pfluger TX-11), Randy Weber (TX-14).

Article II, Section 2, Clause 2, the Treaty Clause, grants the President the “power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur.”

It is clear that the Paris Agreement is a treaty, not an administrative agreement as falsely claimed.

Thanks to President Trump's leadership, the U.S. formally exited the job-killing Paris Agreement on November 4, 2020.

Implementing the Paris Agreement could destroy up to 2.7 million jobs in the United States by 2025 alone.

Yesterday, President Biden signed the instrument to rejoin the Paris Agreement and announced and the U.S. will officially become a Party of the Paris Agreement in 30 days.

Simply put, the Paris Climate Agreement places an economic handicap on the U.S. for generations to come while yielding no discernible benefit to the environment worldwide. It allows bad actors, like China, to keep increasing CO2 emissions until at least 2030 with no penalty.

Compliance with this unconstitutional agreement will also ensure that the U.S. increases dependence on foreign countries for our energy needs – a huge national security risk. The U.S. has the highest regulatory standards in the world and shifting production to hostile nations is not only bad foreign policy, its bad environmental policy as these countries don’t operate under the same regulations.

American ingenuity and innovation have allowed the U.S. to become a global leader in reducing carbon emissions. Unshackling job creators by reducing overreaching regulatory burdens has resulted in voluntary actions and technological advancements that have yielded significant benefits for the environment. That is the path America should be pursuing, not unrealistic and unattainable climate goals not based in science that yield no benefit.

Attempt to Block Biden's Mask Mandate

Washington, D.C. - January 23, 2020 - (The Ponder News) -- U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (CO-03) has introduced a bill to overturn Joe Biden’s federal mask mandate.

“You can’t make this stuff up. Joe Biden was on federal land without a mask the same day he signed a federal property mask mandate. Sadly, this is what we’ve come to expect from hypocritical Democrats. ‘Mandates for thee, but not for me.’

“The Biden administration is already headed in the wrong direction. Instead of focusing on reopening our economy and getting Americans back to work, this president wants more mandates and more lockdowns. Continued federal overreach won’t end the COVID-19 pandemic or put food on the table.”

says Boebert. On Thursday, Joe Biden signed an executive order mandating masks be worn at all times on federal properties and in federal buildings.

The Biden edict also applies to interstate commerce, requiring masks to be worn at airports as well as on planes, buses and trains.

On Friday, U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (CO-03) introduced her first three bills as a Member of Congress.

H.R. 375, the No Mask Mandates Act, blocks the Biden federal mask mandate.

The bill allows for masks to be encouraged but not mandated when people are on federal property or engaging in interstate commerce.

The text of the bill can be viewed HERE.


As Biden goes on a rampage to undo everything President Trump has accomplished, the Democrats are hell-bent on destroying anyone who supports a way that is not their own. This is only the beginning.

First, all Conservatives who voted to support the Trump agenda, or anything that goes against the Democrat agenda will be locked out of social media. They will not be able to communicate with each other online. This will leave the next generation of Americans at the sole power of their own propaganda.

The next generation will see conservatives as "stupid" and it will further their claims of domestic terrorism. It's fixing to get bad, folks. It's already started.

If we conservatives do not get together now to fight this by creating our OWN servers, our OWN networks, and our OWN social media outlets that do not depend on Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter, we are doomed!

Democrats Are Framing Americans As Domestic Terrorists So They Can Do To Us What They Did To Trump In Spygate

January 20, 2021
Democrats have moved swiftly to use the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol mayhem to push for a frightening expansion of federal surveillance and police powers under their sole control for two years, smearing anyone who voted for Donald Trump as a potential terrorist. Joe Biden himself called the Capitol protesters “domestic terrorists” and “insurrectionists” and said his administration will prioritize legislation to increase federal crackdowns on what Democrats consider to be “domestic terrorists.”.

Heritage President Kay C. James on Social Media Censorship

Washington, D.C. - January 8, 2021 - (The Ponder News) -- Heritage Foundation President Kay C. James made the following statement about recent actions by social media companies:

“Americans have legitimate concerns about the role of Big Tech in shaping and influencing political speech. Time and again, social media companies have squandered the public’s trust and don’t deserve the benefit of the doubt.

“Letting dictatorial regimes from China and Iran use their platform while banning the democratically elected leader of the United States shows the hypocrisy and political motivations of these companies.

“Shutting off legitimate debate and intellectual diversity comes at a very high cost. Big Tech is not going to stop with the president of the United States. They can ban you next and everyone reading this.

“This is why it is time for Congress to reform Section 230 and Americans to exercise their power by continuing to put pressure on Big Tech.”
