Biden’s Response To Chinese Missile Threat: Promoting Transgender Health Official Rachel Levine To Four-Star Admiral
Just days after reports surfaced about China’s new nuclear-capable hypersonic missile technology that is far more advanced than what the U.S. possesses, President Biden has responded in the dumbest way possible that only someone with dementia would actually think is going to keep Americans safe.
Yep, you guessed it. His response to the China threat was to promote Rachel Levine, Biden’s transgender health official who helped Democrats cover up COVID nursing home deaths while working for the State of Pennsylvania, to the rank of Four-Star Admiral.
Rachel Levine, the United States’ assistant secretary for health, was sworn in Tuesday as a 4-star Admiral of the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, a 6,000-member force that responds to health crises on the federal government’s behalf, including administering coronavirus vaccines and providing care following hurricanes.
Levine was sworn in as Admiral in front of fellow diversity hire Vivek Murthy, Biden’s Surgeon General who wore a mask during the ceremony despite being fully vaccinated.
Levine gave cringeworthy remarks after being sworn in, proclaiming, “I am honored to serve as the first female 4-star officer of the U.S. Public Health Service Commission Corps,” despite the fact that Levine is a man. Anyone who takes one look at Rachel Levine and convinces themselves that Levine is a woman is just as sick in the head as Levine is.
“May this appointment today be the first of many more to come as we create a diverse and more inclusive future,” Levine added.
Advocacy groups such as the LGBT rights organization GLAAD and health care officials lauded the move as a watershed moment.
The group representing public health officials “is here to support you and your team defend the health of all Americans!” Michael Fraser, CEO of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, several conservatives derided the swearing-in ceremony as a political gesture.
“Biden gang playing quota politics with public health service,” Tom Fitton, president of conservative legal group Judicial Watch, wrote on Facebook.
The public health service is one of the nation’s eight uniformed services, although it distinguishes itself from the six military services — which include the Navy, Army, and Air Force — by emphasizing medical matters. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Commissioned Officer Corps is also a uniformed service. Its officers command vehicles that investigate hurricanes and survey the seafloor.
Levine, 63, who previously served as Pennsylvania’s health secretary and removed his own mother from a nursing home while requiring nursing homes to accept COVID positive patients, is now expected to play a larger role in the service’s operations. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, Levine will be the corps’ sixth four-star admiral.
