Obama Surgeon General nominee - Podesta/Soros

Obama has nominated a new Surgeon General

...will nominate the head of a doctors group...

...Vivek Hallegere Murthy, president of Doctors for America, will succeed Rear Admiral Boris Lushniak, who has been acting as the surgeon general since July...

Doctors for America is a group of 15,000 physicians and medical students that has rallied behind Obamacare...

Who is behind "Doctors for America"?
(Spoiler alert: Center for American Progress)


On to Doctors for America's meatworld presence; Their site lists a contact address:


Doctors for America
1333 H St NW, 10th Floor
Washington, DC 20005
Phone: (202) 478-5327
1333 H St NW is notable, it has its own Wiki entry.
Tenants include the Center for American Progress, American Constitution Society, the Economic Policy Institute, and Reuters, among others.
ACS and EPI are both progressive/left organizations too.

When we look at CAP's staff list, we find the linkage to DFA. It seems DFA is being run as some sort of sub-project under the CAP umbrella:


Doctors for America
Rachel Curley, Special Assistant
Brannon Jordan, Communications Manager

How tight are CAP and DFA? Well, they're both located at 1333 H St NW and they're both on the 10th Floor, and DFA is listed by CAP as a CAP "project". Pretty tight. DFA claims to be a "grassroots" and "non-partisan" in its mission statement.

...Doctors for America’s grassroots, broad-based coalition...

...we are a non-partisan, non-profit and do not endorse any candidates or parties. We are not affiliated with any partisan group or with the administration.


  • DFA is a CAP "project"

  • CAP is run by John Podesta

  • CAP gets funding from George Soros

  • CAP runs the ThinkProgress blog
NON. PARTISAN.

I also dug into the DFA "leadership" looking for political donations using OpenSecrets. I found that the leadership who had records of political donations only donated to Democrats and leftist organization. Shocker eh?

So we have Vivek Murthy, the Obama Surgeon General nominee, running DFA, which is an obvious front organization (and not even a thinly disguised one at that) for CAP, which is run by Podesta and funded by Soros.
