CrossFit Settles Lawsuit With HHS After Agency Releases Emails Showing Continued Efforts to Conceal Donations

9

CrossFit, Inc. has settled a lawsuit with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) after HHS and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) complied with CrossFit’s FOIA requests and released internal communications, as required by law. When HHS attorneys noticed incriminating content within these emails, however, they attempted to retroactively redact the information. CrossFit publishes these emails here, displaying evidence of the CDC’s internal awareness of its transparency policy with regard to donor records — even those of the organization’s powerful industry donors — and reluctance to make that damning information available to the public.

This is an interesting image because at first it is reminiscent of medieval religious images with the figure's golden halo, but I think it may actually be a hat. Rivera is well known for his murals that tend to take up sociopolitical issues, this may actually address some tension here with the seemingly religious halo that is actually the hat of someone who may work long hours under the sun. Maybe someone else can enlighten us regarding this question....

Thanks Greg and Team! The issue with CDC corruption overlaps into so many other topics. Robert F Kennedy JR is exposing similar corrupted stories in the Vaccine topic. I'm sure he would love to team up. Hit them hard and hit them with everything!

Estar abraçado.

Um dos melhores sentimentos que podemos sentir quando somos abraçados, acolhido por um colo onde podemos sorrir ou chorar é um momento sem explicação.


Estar em comunidade onde o próximo entende sua dificuldade ou a sua alegria e compartilha isso com você junto nos traz alegria! Segurança! Encontre em um abraço verdadeiro a paz que seu interior busca.


Em um box de Crossfit verei as pessoas que o fazem, serem o abraço verdadeiro, podendo compartilhar de momentos e crescerem em esperança de dias melhores!

So the emails were released. But what about the overall donor contribution reports? The original request? We’re those published to congress and the public as well? This article doesn’t explain what the next steps are or what’s left pending. What’s the end goal and where in that journey is crossfit?

Hi Chris,


The emails revealed that the CDC knew that the Foundation's donor contribution reports were not compliant four years ago. Working on the front line of this issue, my suspicion is that the Foundation has never produced the reports as required by statute. The reports which have been provided to Congress and to the public do not include the correct information. In regard to your questions about strategy and tactics, I am happy to discuss those further by email (brett.ewer@crossfit.com). Thanks!


Brett

My heartfelt thanks to CrossFit - for staying the course. As a Type 1 Diabetic for 28 yrs and a Crossfit member since May 2019 I can fully attest to the health benefits of CrossFit (movements AND diet). My A1-Cs have dropped consistently since June. I am also stronger in 6 months of CrossFit than in all the 30 years I’ve done cardio/light weights. Additionally - as a legal secretary I appreciate and commend CrossFit for poking holes in the darkness. STAY STRONG!

but until this hits the mainstream media, nothing will change. this comment will go nowhere, but I will type it anyway. My spouse has watched me go from a 25+ year smoker to top 1000 in the open for my age group. She still chooses to believe the old wive's tales that grains and starches are fine, and fat is the enemy. I can't tell how many fights we've had in the past 36 months over diet and its effects on health.


Anyhow, please keep up the fight
