Ron Bassilian, an information technology (IT) guru who specializes in Microsoft's Exchange enterprise email solution software, has offered up solid proof that the CDC knowingly diverted at least $3 million in taxpayer funding to leftist groups that have nothing to do with science.
Back in 2014, Representative Karen Bass, a Democratic congresswoman from California, was seen handing over a giant $3 million check to a local group known as the South Los Angeles Healthcare Organizing Project that claims to advocate for improving the health of the poor. And emblazoned on the check as the payer was none other than the CDC.
But what, exactly, is the South Los Angeles Healthcare Organizing Project, and is it really centered around improving public health? According to Bassilian, it's actually a political advocacy group that functions as just another of many thinly-veiled Democratic campaign-pushing liberal causes – almost none of which have to do with public health.
Also known as the "Community Coalition," this recipient of that infamous $3 million check from the CDC is not only not focused on improving the health of poor people as its primary agenda, but is actually pushing completely unrelated causes like gun control and racial divide throughout the United States.
As pointed out by Bassilian, the Community Coalition used some of the money it received from the CDC to send children to speak at "March For Our Lives" events, including the widely publicized rally that took place in Washington, D.C., back in March.
The Community Coalition also funds all sorts of other Democratic initiatives, including everything from the George Soros-backed "Black Lives Matter" movement to anti-gentrification initiatives – all of which are are listed on the group's "CoCo In the News" webpage.
"Can someone please explain to me what any of these issues have to do with tackling health?" asks Bassilian, noting that it was actually a friend of his who started Community Coalition, much to his surprise.
"Shouldn't they be dealing with something like the homeless epidemic if public disease control was something they were concerned about? You know, that epidemic that's spreading because of the very hamstrung police this Community Coalition helped create?"
It's just more crony politics by the Democratic Party, which for years has been hijacking various government agencies like the CDC – which has an extensive track record of corruption, by the way – and using them to fund its own agenda. This is how the Democrats stay in power in places like California, after all, where fairness and honesty is now a thing of the past.
Even in his own current race for a congressional seat in the Golden State's 37th district, Bassilian sees that his Democratic opponent is receiving millions in diverted cash in order to defeat him. It's the continued curse of Obama-era politics, he says, and represents part of the "swamp" that President Donald Trump campaigned on defeating.
"The Democratic Party isn't winning in California because their ideas are better, or they're more compassionate than conservatives. It's because they monopolized the racket," says Bassilian.
"Your tax money is only being used in a neverending [sic] racket to fund the rent-seeking, ever-growing state which just leeches off us. Until we break the political monopoly in this state, the swamp will snare us all like so many fossils in the La Brea Tarpits."
