Congressman Brian Mast is a war hero, conservative, and all-American family man, voting with President Trump 100 percent of the time in the 116th Congress. So it comes as a complete and total surprise that he recently appeared publicly with a group that has repeatedly sued the Trump Administration and has taken at least $17,500 from a George Soro-linked organization. The group in question is the Center for Biological Diversity, a far left environmental group supported by the George Soros-backed and San Francisco-based Tides Foundation. Soros’ support for the Tides Foundation has been widely reported.

Recently, Congressman Mast appeared at an event in his congressional district to promote public awareness of environmental issues in Florida. The meeting was organized by far-left environmental groups Bullsugar and the Center for Biological Diversity.
The February 16th event was also promoted by Mast on his congressional website.
Additionally, Rep. Mast will be speaking at a community briefing on February 16, 2019 in Stuart, Fla. hosted by Bullsugar.org and Center for Biological Diversity about ways people can participate in the process.
The Center for Biological Diversity has proudly sued the Trump Administration 106 times. According to a large banner on the front of the left-leaning group’s website, the group is “nowhere near finished” filing lawsuits against President Trump.
In fact, on the day that Mast appeared with the group, the group announced it was filing suit against President Trump’s administration Emergency Declaration to build the new border wall. In announcing the lawsuit, the Center for Biological Diversity’s senior attorney called President Trump’s declaration “a flagrant abuse of that constitutional structure…If [Trump] gets his way, it’ll be a disaster for communities and wildlife along the border, including some of our country’s most endangered species.”
Among the Center for Biological Diversity’s other initiatives is a population control measure called “Endangered Species Condoms.” According to the radical group’s site:
The Center for Biological Diversity launched our Endangered Species Condoms project in 2009, and since then has distributed hundreds of thousands of free condoms across the United States. Wrapped in colorful, wildlife-themed packages (with artwork by Shawn DiCriscio), Endangered Species Condoms offer a fun, unique way to get people talking about the link between human population growth and the species extinction crisis.
According to LeftExposed.org, the group “specializes in manipulating the Endangered Species Act to prevent resource production and human activity. Its activities have involved breaking the law – including a shoplifting conviction for its founder – and framing innocent people to ruin their lives and livelihoods.”
The Center Action Fund, which is the political arm of the Center for Biological Diversity, supported 18 candidates for federal and state offices in Florida in 2018 – NONE were Republicans. Not one.
