BOMBSHELL: The @CDCgov is moving forward with a critical race theory training program—in violation of @POTUS' executive action.

I've obtained leaked documents that outline the CDC's plan to "examine the mechanisms of systemic racism" and address "White supremacist ideology."

The 13-week series is called "Naming, Measuring, and Addressing the Impacts of Racism on the Health and Well-Being of the Nation and the World." I have obtained the internal emails (in white) and an APHA presentation by the series instructor that follows same structure (in blue).
The first three training sessions are focused on "racism, sexism, and other systems of structured inequality," then teaching CDC employees that they must "address institutionalized racism" to "really set things right in the garden" of a racist nation.
In sessions 6 through 9, the CDC claims that "racism is a public health crisis" and that "systemic racism" leads to "police killings of unarmed Black and Brown men and women" and leads to "the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on communities of color."
In sessions 10 and 11, the trainers will teach CDC employees that they must "target" and destroy the values of "focus on the individual," the "myth of meritocracy," the "myth of American exceptionalism," and "White supremacist ideology." This is textbook critical race theory.
The final session teaches CDC employees how to become activists. They will be encouraged to join an "Anti-Racism Collaborative with eight Collective Action Teams," focused on "communications," making scientific publications "anti-racist," and influencing "policy and legislation."
My whistleblower is outraged: "I thought maybe they would wisely cancel this training series. Instead we got a message this morning confirming ... The pressure to participate is palpable and if you don't you will have to explain why you aren't a racist."
We are in the midst of a pandemic and the CDC is prioritizing a critical race theory training program that is in direct violation of a presidential order. @CDCDirector Robert Redfield must immediately terminate this program—and focus on COVID-19, where CDC has been disastrous.
Finally, I want to issue a warning to every federal department in the United States: if you violate the president's order on critical race theory, I will find you, expose you, and shut you down.

Hit me with a ⚔️ in the comments if you're behind me.

The president is denouncing critical race theory on national television—and elevating this intellectual fight into a major campaign theme.

The battle-lines are drawn: we can embrace the principles of 1776 or the principles of 1619.…

Last month, a Department of Education-funded organization hosted a conference on "abolishing the United States."

I've obtained shocking leaked documents from the keynote session, which encourages teachers to "create disruption," "abolish" capitalism, and "tear down" America.

According to minutes from the session, the keynote speaker, Bettina Love, opened by saying that America has "oppressed [people of color] for 400 years" and that teachers must "consciously tear down a system that oppresses people" and "build a new world."
The organization hosting the conference—CAST—has received more than $16 million in taxpayer funding under the Trump Administration and this conference on "abolition" was attended by Department of Education staff.

In the past 60 days, my reporting has led to:

– Presidential order banning critical race theory
– IG investigation of the national nuclear labs
– OSC investigation of the financial agencies
– DOJ investigation of City of Seattle

And I'm just getting warmed up.
My next investigation should look at critical race theory in:
K-12 education off to a strong start!

On Tuesday, I called on the President to abolish critical race theory in the federal government. Tonight, he delivered.

This executive action is the first successful counterattack against critical race theory in American history.

Tonight, we celebrate; tomorrow, back to war.⚔️
Thank you @realDonaldTrump for taking bold and decisive action.

Thank you @TuckerCarlson for being a champion of this cause.

Thank you @skprufo for your undying love and support.

There is a civil war erupting at @SandiaLabs.

Following my investigation, a dissident electrical engineer named Casey Peterson emailed all 16,000 employees denouncing critical race theory in the lab and hoping to spark a rebellion against Sandia executives.

Here's the story.🧵
On Tuesday, Peterson made a YouTube video "pushing back back on the narrative of modern systemic racism and white privilege."

The video quickly hit 10,000 views within the labs and dozens of Sandia employees contacted Peterson to express support.

Within hours, Sandia executives dispatched a counterintelligence team to lock Peterson out of the network and scrub his communications from internal servers—which, via the Streisand Effect, made the video even more viral and sparked widespread unrest against Sandia executives.

The virus of critical race theory is spreading to all of the national laboratories.

In new documents from Argonne National Lab—which handles national security and supercomputing for the federal government—a whistleblower describes a relentless campaign of racial harassment.

Top executives and scientists at the federal lab claim the United States is an "institutionally racist society" and that white lab employees must atone for the "pain and anguish inflicted upon Black people" and "unequivocally assert that Black lives matter."
They demand that white employees embark on a journey of "becoming anti-racist." They believe that "striving to be comfortable" and "talk[ing] to others who look and think like me" are expressions of racism—that must be driven out of the workplace.
