Longtime Ohio statehouse observers were left scratching their face masks when Republican Governor Michael DeWine announced that the State of Ohio would be working with a Massachusetts nonprofit, Partners in Health, on contact tracing.
Why? Partners in Health has a long history of left-wing activism and receives substantial support from liberal donors that want to fundamentally remake American society.
Liberation theology has been defined as a “synthesis of Christian theology and socio-economic analyses, based in far-left politics, particularly Marxism.” Paul Farmer, the co-founder of Partners in Health, openly brags that he was influenced by liberation theology. In fact, the website of Partners in Health is replete with examples.
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
Since prior to 2009, Partners in Health has received in excess of $23 million from Bill Gates’ namesake foundation. Most notably, the foundation spent hundreds of millions of dollars to implement Common Core education standards. Additionally, the foundation has donated over $82 million to various Planned Parenthood groups.
George Soros and the Open Society Foundation
The George Soros funded Open Society Foundation made its first $3 million grant to Partners in Health in 2007. In 2014 Soros dropped another $4 million to fight Ebola in Liberia. Soros in January denounced President Donald Trump as a “con man,” the “ultimate narcissist” and a “climate denier.” The Soros funded Open Society Foundations have spent billions on left wing causes around the world.
The Clinton Connection
When former President Bill Clinton was named a Special Envoy to Haiti in 2009, Dr. Paul Farmer was right there beside him as his Deputy Envoy. Additionally, Chelsea Clinton serves as a member of the Board of Trustees for Partners in Health and they have collaborated with the Clinton Foundation on numerous projects.
Left Wing Consultants
According to their financial reports, Partners in Health employs left wing political consulting firm Blue State Digital on an annual basis for digital engagement consulting. Blue State Digital was founded by former staffers of Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential campaign and provided services for the 2008 and 2012 Barack Obama Presidential campaigns. Blue State Digital was paid $335,966 in 2018, $317,869 in 2017, and $253,567 in 2016.
