The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has come under fire for their handling of the coronavirus pandemic and examining what they devote their limited resources toward shows that the anger that has developed toward the bureaucracy is well-deserved.
Journalist Daniel Greenfield noted in Front Page Mag that the CDC has focused on liberal causes du jour rather than their mandate of actually keeping Americans safe from legitimate public health crises.
Greenfield noted that one of the social justice causes that have been pushed by the CDC are unconstitutional gun control schemes.
Last year, the federal budget gave $25 million for the CDC to split with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to come up with psuedo-scientific gun control schemes. This satisfied a request from liberals to study gun control as a public health crisis as a way to undermine the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.
“The significance of this is huge,” said Mark Rosenberg, a gun control advocate who used the CDC to push for gun control before Republicans defunded such research in the 1990s. “For 20 years, the government has not sought answers using science to this horrendous public health crisis.”
Greenberg also pointed to other boondoggles the CDC has funded, including a state-of-the-art $106 million visitor’s center replete with Japanese gardens, a gym facility costing $200K, and a beauty pageant for transgender individuals.
“The occasional outbreak only calls the CDC’s general incompetence to everyone’s attention. The rest of the time its incompetence, like that of other government agencies, just ticks along wasting money,” Greenberg wrote.
A program implemented by former President Bill Clinton illustrates the failure of the CDC’s SJW central planning. He unveiled his National Plan to Eliminate Syphilis in 1999, in what was supposed to be a legacy project for his administration. Despite the money that was spent on his plan – which was framed around fighting back against racism – syphilis rates reached an all-time high in the year of 2018.
Democrat presidential front-runner Joe Biden, in a boast exhibiting extreme Hubris, said he would use the CDC and other bureaucracies to defeat cancer if he was elected to the presidency.
“If I’m elected president you’re gonna see single most important thing that changes America, we’re going to cure cancer,” Biden said last year.
In addition, the CDC is using their resources to fight an obesity epidemic. They have funded 15 colleges throughout the country to “work with community extension services to increase access to healthier foods and safe and accessible places for physical activity.” This includes a $1 million handout to Louisiana State University to promote farmers’ markets.
“Every administration has tried to put its own stamp on the CDC by playing around with organizational charts and adding more pointless initiatives. Meanwhile all those billions of dollars that Americans think are going to fight the outbreaks of contagious diseases are going to anything and everything but,” Greenfeld explained.
“Social welfare isn’t just a dangerous distraction, it prevents the CDC from making the right decisions about keeping infected people from entering the United States when lives are on the line… We need a CDC that deals with viruses instead of trying to brainwash people,” he concluded.

Rhode Island Police Targeting New Yorkers for Mandatory Coronavirus Quarantine
State police will scrutinize New Yorkers arriving in the state.
Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo signed an executive order on Thursday that establishes strict mandatory quarantine rules for those arriving in the state from nearby New York.
“Anyone coming to Rhode Island in any way from New York must be quarantined,” said the governor at a press conference. “By order. Will be enforced. Enforceable by law.”
The executive order will require New Yorkers to identify themselves to state law enforcement or National Guard personnel and place themselves into self-quarantine for 14 days upon their arrival. The Empire State is the national ground zero for the Chinese coronavirus epidemic, and Rhode Island’s government appears highly skeptical of New Yorkers fleeing from the state.
Governor Raimondo admitted that the executive order is an “an extreme measure,” but justified its implication on the basis of the coronavirus epidemic’s severity. “I don’t want anyone to panic. If anything, Rhode Islanders should breathe a sigh of relief. We are doing things to keep ourselves safe.”
National Guard personnel are being posted at the state’s major airports, and state police are stopping passenger traffic that enters from New York. Law enforcement will follow up with New York residents that enter the state to ensure that they’re complying the law.
Raimondo established real penalties for New Yorkers that violate the self-quarantine rule, subjecting them to a maximum penalty of a $500 fine or even 90 days in prison.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo expressed his disapproval of the move, claiming it unfairly singles out New Yorkers in a time when Americans should be uniting to combat the coronavirus epidemic.
“I don’t like it socially or culturally. I don’t like what it says about us as one state, one family. Also, I don’t believe it’s medically justified.
Florida, Maryland, Texas and California have enacted similar public health measures that scrutinize New Yorkers, but Rhode Island’s appears to be the most forceful to enter effect thus far.
