Amidst an energy crisis, a border crisis, an inflation crisis, a supply chain crisis, and a hypersonic missile threat from China, to name just a few things, Dementia Joe Biden, between naps in Delaware, has seen fit to throw out another shiny object to get our attention and placate his panicked base, namely, the bestowing of the rank of four-star admiral on Assistant Health Secretary Rachel Levine:
Assistant Health Secretary Rachel Levine made history Tuesday by becoming the first openly transgender four-star officer in America’s eight uniformed services.
Levine, 63, was ceremonially sworn in as an admiral in the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps by Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced.
“I am deeply honored & grateful to join the ranks of men & women across this great nation who have committed to defend the United States against small & large threats, known and unknown,” Levine tweeted upon her swearing-in. “I promise to uphold that trust to the fullest extent of my abilities.”
“Admiral Levine’s historic appointment as the first openly transgender four-star officer is a giant step forward towards equality as a nation. This is a proud moment for us at HHS,” department secretary Xavier Becerra said in a statement.
Wow. Well, China may have a hypersonic missile but I betcha they don’t have a four-star admiral with cojones. The Harris/Biden administration is claiming Rachel is the first transgendered female so designated. Well, he isn’t the first such female because Rachel Levine is not a female.
