Remember when the Twilight zone was just a show on TV? Rand Paul nails down this candidate for Biden’s latest pick for weirdos to fill out his cabinet. This one is a doozy. Later the background on this guy/gal who thinks it’s apparently great for kids to mutilate their bodies without parents knowledge.
Rand Paul puts Rachel’s feet to the fire with his well laid out question.
Biden nominee refuses to answer the question about whether the government should override a parent’s consent to allow a minor to receive puberty blockers or surgical amputation of breasts or genitalia.
“You’re willing to let a minor take things to prevent their puberty, and you think they get back?… You have permanently changed them… There’s no long term studies. We don’t know what happens to them.”
Joe Biden is pushing Rachel Levine through the Senate to be second-in-command at the Department of Health & Human Services. Rachel is a biological male who supports sex change surgeries & life altering hormone treatments for children. Is this what ‘healing the nation’ looks like?
Levine questioned on missing Pa. nursing home data in …
HARRISBURG — During a federal confirmation hearing Thursday, former Health Secretary Rachel Levine was questioned about the ongoing data discrepancies in Pennsylvania’s public reports on nursing home coronavirus deaths and cases.
U.S. Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine) said Levine had assured her that Pennsylvania had accurately reported deaths in these homes, unlike New York, where the attorney general found that the Cuomo administration had undercounted fatalities by the thousands.But Collins questioned that claim, citing Spotlight PA reporting from September 2020 that found weekly reports released by the state health department were consistently missing death and case data for more than 100 of the state’s 693 nursing homes.……
By September, more than six months since the first COVID-19 case in Pennsylvania, problems with the data had not been corrected. With many facilities still closed to visitors, advocates for nursing home residents and families said that there were few ways for families to know what was going on inside facilities and to monitor outbreaks.Data related to a deadly outbreak at one Lehigh County facility was not included in the reports until August — after 80 residents had died, one of the highest death tolls in a nursing home in the state.
The news comes as Levine, the nation’s first openly transgender health secretary, comes under fire over the department’s handling of nursing homes — particularly a March guidance that essentially instructed senior living facilities to accept patients who were diagnosed with the coronavirus.
The guidance stated:
Nursing care facilities must continue to accept new admissions and receive readmissions for current residents who have been discharged from the hospital who are stable to alleviate the increasing burden in the acute care settings. This may include stable patients who have had the COVID-19 virus.
Nearly 70 percent of the state’s coronavirus-related deaths — 2,896 of 4,218 — are connected to nursing home facilities.
It was revealed this week that Levine removed his 95-year-old mother from such a facility during the pandemic.
