WASHINGTON — Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine, who is openly transgender, has been nominated to become assistant secretary of health under President-elect Joe Biden’s administration, The Associated Press is reporting. (Tweet) With the nomination, Levine, who has served in her current position since 2017, could soon make history: If confirmed, she would become the first openly transgender person to receive U.S. Senate confirmation for a federal post, according to the AP. In a statement, Biden called Levine a “deeply qualified choice” for the job, the AP reported. “Dr. Rachel Levine will bring the steady leadership and essential expertise we need


Yikes! She/He is not fooling anyone.

No matter what the dems say or how often they say it, there is no such thing as " transgender". No matter how much surgery you have or what drugs you take, you cannot change your sex. The guy is mentally ill.

This is payback to Pennsylvania for performing the largest election fraud in the Nation. This he/she should be investigated for what she did to the elderly in nursing facilities....10K dead.

Not just the fact that this man is mentally ill to think he's a woman, but he actually had surgery to become the ugliest person in the country proves it. Also, he's committing a hate crime. It's called gender misappropriation BTW...why doesn't Xiden pick Dr. Jill to be assistant secretary of health?

#4 Bingo! But not only did he lock the infected elderly inside nursing homes to ensure spread of infection, but he first removed his own mother from her nursing home into a hotel! And nobody cared! Media did not care. Where is the outrage in PA from voters who lost a loved one? While Levine protected his.

Levine was proven to be incompetent in PA, so fits very well in His Fraudulency's regime. Along with Zeke Emanuel, the Himmler of Healthcare, it will be abortions at birth, rationed healthcare except for sex changes, and withdrawal of medical procedures for those over 75.

Sweet Jesus! We in Pennsylvania have suffered the incompetence of Rachel Levine for years! It was a professor at Penn State's medical school, taught child psychiatry. (Think about that for a moment.) Levine was a man while teaching, had a wife, she had two children (who we should pray for) then he decided he was a she, and we have been inflicted with its presence in state government as it teamed up with our munchin governor to kill old people in nursing homes. (But not Levine's mother, who was secreted out of a nursing home and placed in a hotel, to avoid Kung Flu.) How ugly is Levine? It is so ugly, it could kill off the tranny movement completely.

Biden seems more interested in having the "FIRST" minority or special interest category person in each position than he does in having the best, most qualified person in each position. Being a minority or a member of a special interest group appears to be the main qualification to be considered to be a member of the Biden administration. Looks like so far, the only White Male in the Biden administration is Joe Biden. We need the best and brightest. Not the most diverse and colorful, politically correct people.

I thought it was bad when PA Governor Wolf took this pervert, who was a professor of child psychology at Penn State and made it the PA Dept of Health secretary to show everyone how "woke" he is. We all had to listen to it in the televised daily Covid briefings from the governor berating us for not wearing masks and not self-quarantining unit; a vaccine is developed. She was the idiot who decided to take Covid patients out of the hospital (to free up the ICU's that it claimed would be overwhelmed) and moved them into recuperation care homes where they could infect the innocent aged patients. Never mind that those facilities did not have the isolation wards, facilities, physicians and trained nurses, medications, etc to treat Covid patients. The senior homes were decimated by Covid and well over 10,000 died. But Levine was smart enough to discharge her own mother from a nursing home and transfer her to a hotel with private care before its order was issued. Levine also banned the use of HCQ to treat Covid despite its use worldwide as an inexpensive, readily available therapeutic because......Orange Man said HCQ good. By appointing her, Biden shows his rainbow woke bonafides. And Wolf gets rid of an incompetent before the lawsuits by distraught relatives of the murdered during home residents against PA and Levine start to get filed.

#14, you beat me to it. People who have so much privilege, so elite that they can do as they please and never suffer just consequences, instead of the promotions they always seem to get... because they ARE ALL IN IT TOGETHER. Newsome is facing some headwinds, but i doubt he will be ultimately held to account. The voice of the people is being stifled, threatened, demonized when you can not make reasonable objections to what is false, what is irrational. We will not be able to survive where up is down, evil is good and good is evil, when categories can not be defined, when words lose their meaning. That's the end of communication and communication is essential to a Republic. Without it you have brute majoritarian power. And on that note, when Republicans have held all three Branches, they restrained themselves from using the accompanying reins of power. It has been frustrating that when they could have used it legitimately they did not, out of weakness and fear. And they NEVER tried to take First Amendment Rights or any other Rights away from those with whom they disagree. So while this Biden pick may be disqualified for so many reasons, one "quality" will be raised like a shield of special objections to criticism.

I had been wondering, when it became obvious that Xiden was picking his administration by checking off a panderer's wish list of diversity, whether or not he was depraved enough to reach out to the most revolting individual I had ever seen from a segment on The Five a while back that featured a transgender who, as a Pa. state health official, had snuck his aging mother out of her nursing home just before ordering nursing homes in take Covid sufferers (a la Andrew Cuomo in neighboring New York). Amazingly, Xiden did not disappoint and is elevating this character to a national health policy decision-making position. It's like Joe has raised his middle finger high and thrust it in the face of every normal in this country. His clown car administration is a walking, talking joke.

Excellent. There are no half measures they are going all in. Maybe the Thug, cuomo will be the new AG. The next wake up call will be getting all those guns off the street. The average 'woke' dope and hysterical idiot will slowly start to understand just what they supported. When it really starts to destroy their life, they will be upset and reflexively blame Trump, but then they will whine. By the time they understand they broke it, there won't be any fixing it. Anyone who might have fought back will be gone. It is going to get far worse than a deranged Health Secretary. Don't worry about how he looks, worry about the health measures she forces down your throat. We gave them the power to kill our jobs and force us to stay inside and wear a mask outside. They can do whatever they want to you. Levine is the new normal. What are you going to do about it? What can you do?

Joe Biden was inaugurated as the 46th US president on Wednesday, after previously serving as the vice president during the Obama administration. Mr Biden, who served under Barack Obama between 2009 and 2017, is the first person in 32 years to be elected president after previously working as vice president. The last person to work in both roles was George H W Bush, who became president after serving as vice president under Ronald Reagan for eight years. In addition to Mr Biden and Bush, there have been 13 other US presidents who have gone on to serve as president since .

Maj. Gen. Dany Fortin, who is leading Canada’s logistical rollout and distribution of vaccines, called it a major reduction, but said Pfizer is still expected to meet its contractual obligation to ship four million doses to Canada by the end of March.

President-elect Biden will reverse President Trump's controversial policy restricting travel for nationals from several Muslim-majority countries. Why it matters: The ban restricted travel and immigration, to varying degrees, for about 7% of the world's population. Biden previously blamed Trump for the "unconscionable rise in Islamophobia." (Snip) After lower court rulings invalidated the first versions of the ban, the Supreme Court in June 2018 upheld the Trump administration’s third version, which applied to nationals of five majority-Muslim countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen — and put restrictions on people traveling from Venezuela and North Korea. In 2020, it was

The more contagious strain of the coronavirus — first identified in the U.K. in September 2020 — has been detected in at least 20 states in the U.S. so far, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reporting 122 COVID-19 cases caused by the variant. The CDC predicts the new coronavirus strain will grow rapidly in 2021, and become “the predominant variant in March.” So should you double up on face masks for added protection against the more contagious strain of the virus? “The short answer is ... no,” Dr. Dean Winslow, infectious disease physician at Stanford Health Care

President-elect Joe Biden’s nominee for defense secretary, retired Gen. Lloyd Austin, laid blame on military leaders for failing to detect and root out white supremacy from the ranks during his Tuesday nomination hearing. “We have to train our leaders to make sure they are in touch with the people they are leading,” said Austin, who would be the first African American secretary of defense if granted a congressional waiver to become the Pentagon's top civilian leader after recently serving on active duty and confirmed by the Senate. “I don’t think this is a thing you can put a Band-Aid on

Jeremiah Fears sat beneath an elk head mounted on the wall of the volunteer fire department in his little city and rolled up his sleeve for what he hopes is a step toward normality: his first dose of Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine.

Democratic Rep.

You’ve got to figure that in the guard, which is predominantly more conservative — I see that on my social media, and we know it. They’re probably not more than 25 percent of the

It is almost certain now that the Senate will hold an impeachment trial of President Trump next week.Even worse, it looks probable he will be convicted of a single charge stemming from the Capitol invasion. The history-making event got the green light from McConnell on his last day as Senate majority leader.

Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States and Kamala Harris was sworn in as the first Black, first Asian-American, and first woman to take the oath of vice president.

The hue from the purple family is a fashionable signal of bipartisanship. Obama's was one of many monochromatic looks in the fashionable crowd. Mrs. Obama's look was designed by Sergio Hudson

The first impression of President Joe Biden’s inauguration speech that Fox News viewers received on Wednesday was from anchor Chris Wallace, who uniformly praised it as “the best inaugural address” he has ever heard. Following Biden’s powerful address in which he declared “democracy has prevailed” and called upon Americans to “end this uncivil war,” the 73-year-old Wallace turned to his Fox colleagues and likened it to all the other presidential speeches he’s witnessed over the years, including that of President John F. Kennedy in 1961.

If there has been one politician on these pages we have WARNED ABOUT over the years it is Senator Mitch McConnell.

Two executives involved in the early call of Arizona for Joe Biden on Election Night, angering many conservatives, are no longer employed at the cable network whose ratings took a subsequent nosedive. Both have been lightning rods for conservatives since the election. The Associated Press reports: Bill Sammon, senior vice president and managing editor at Fox’s Washington bureau, announced his retirement to staff members on Monday. On Tuesday, as part of a restructuring of Fox’s digital operations, politics editor Chris Stirewalt was let go. Fox’s decision to call Arizona for Biden took the network’s anchors by surprise and infuriated the White House, which believed the determination was premature.

Somebody needs to explain to me why conservatives are so defeatist. It never fails. A setback occurs, and rather than rolling their sleeves and getting to work, they collapse into bawling, whining puddles. They’re like a glass-jawed boxer who take a hit and goes down immediately. But instead of hauling themselves back to their feet and slugging away, they just lie there, sobbing, “It’s over… there’s no point… wave goodbye to Lady Liberty for me…” There’s nothing new about this. During the Obama epoch it was eight years of, “Obama is eight feet tall. Obama can walk through walls. He can see you and you can’t see him…”
