In this week’s edition of “it’s a hard pill to swallow,” it turns out that we are funding the World Economic Forum (WEF)—the body of unelected global elites who are looking to usher in the totalitarian policies designed to extinguish our freedoms and make us dependent on a narcissistic one-world global regime.
Yes, our tax dollars are helping the world’s wealthiest individuals and corporations destroy agriculture, take over trade, erode our national sovereignty, usher in central bank digital currencies no reasonable citizen wants, and plot future pandemic policies that make what we experienced during COVID-19 look like child’s play.
A group of House Republicans, led by Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry, are hoping to stop it. Rep. Perry introduced legislation on Jan. 19 called the “Defund Davos Act” to prohibit the Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development, or any other agency from giving more of U.S. tax dollars to the WEF.
Perry, along with Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Rep. Tom Tiffany (R-WI), originally introduced a bill in 2022 to restrict funding to the WEF, but Congress never voted on it. This bill was reintroduced to accomplish what the first one didn’t.
According to Adam Andrzejewski, CEO and founder of OpenTheBooks.com, the U.S. gave $60 million between 2013 and 2020 to the already overflowing-with-money organization—with $26 million attributed to President Obama during his second term and $33 million from President Trump.
“Forcing American Taxpayers to fund annual ski trips for insular, global elitists is absurd—not to mention reprehensible,” said Rep. Perry in a press release. “The World Economic Forum doesn’t deserve one cent of American funding, and it’s past time we defund Davos.”
German economist Klaus Schwab founded the WEF in 1971 to provide a platform for “leading global companies” to “shape global, regional and industry agendas.”
The WEF holds a conference in Davos, Switzerland, each year where CEOs, world leaders, and other elites pay tens of thousands of dollars and fly in on their gas-guzzling private jets to discuss elitist, dystopian ideas like global solidarity, the Great Reset, climate change, digital I.D.s, vaccines, Disease X, and eating bugs to solve world hunger.
A ticket to Davos in 2023 was reportedly $28,000, but before you can buy one, you must be a WEF member. Membership fees range from $69,000 to $690,000 annually, depending on your partnership status.
To actually participate at Davos, fees over and above the annual membership are required. And then, of course, there are the astronomical costs of the trip itself and a week’s accommodations, which reportedly run around $15,000. Our tax dollars also fund the trips of U.S. officials who attend the event. Total partnership and membership revenue for the 2022-2023 year yielded more than 300 million dollars.
“The wealthy WEF globalists should not receive Americans’ hard-earned tax dollars,” Rep. Tiffany said in a statement. “The Defund Davos Act would ensure that U.S. tax dollars are not funding the World Economic Forum and their reset on our way of life.”
