Meet Your New Secretary of Health, Media Favorite Richard/Rachel Levine

One of the most obvious observational biases coming from the propaganda mainstream media in January 2021, is their horrible treatment of First Lady Melania Trump compared to their favorable coverage of the new Democratic White House.

Mrs. Trump, arguably among the most beautiful and intelligent First Ladies ever, was practically crucified by the media during her White House residency. They hypocritically went out of their way to portray her negatively. How many magazine covers was she on?

Americans are noticing that Biden’s new Secretary of Health has received far more positive and slanted coverage in less than two weeks than President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania received in four years.

A glaring case in point is their positivist and cocksure coverage of the individual now in charge of America’s health.

Born Richard Levine over 61 years ago, Joe Biden announced on Jan. 19, “Rachel” Levine would be his Secretary of Health.

One of the most evident examples of their bias is the media’s lack of coverage for Democrat governor’s decisions to infect huge numbers of nursing home residents by forcing nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf and his person in charge of that commonwealth’s health department, Richard ‘Rachel’ Levine, were two of the worst offenders.

Even before New York and New Jersey had even made their move, Wolf’s administration had ordered Pennsylvania nursing homes to accept “readmissions for current residents who have been discharged from the hospital” in order to “alleviate the increasing burden in the acute care settings” including “patients who have had the COVID-19 virus.”


As Health Secretary,  Levine had transferred his/her own mother out of a nursing home and to a hotel.


“Dr. Levine has done a phenomenal job of making sure that we do what we need to do in keeping Pennsylvanians safe,” Governor Wolf insisted.

But the actual results were horrible.

For 2020, Pennsylvania Health Department numbers show there were right at 47,000 resident cases of China Virus COVID-19 in nursing and personal care homes across Pennsylvania.

Among employees, there were 8,534 diagnosed cases. That brings the entire total to 55,159 cases at nursing or personal care facilities.

Out of total deaths, 8,047 have occurred in residents at nursing or personal care facilities.


The statewide death toll was 13,618.

This prompted the Department of Justice to open an investigation which could very well be dead on arrival in the Biden Administration.

DOJ officials requested information from Gov. Wolf, as well as the governors of New York, New Jersey, and Michigan. Authorities believe these states required facilities to admit coronavirus patients to vulnerable populations, many times without adequate testing.


“Governor Wolf has two weeks to comply with the requests for information regarding coronavirus deaths in state-run nursing homes,” US Attorney William M. McSwain said in a statement on Twitter, prior to the Inaguration and the announcement of Levine as the new Health Secretary.

The Democratic led media puppets are more concerned about prisoners than they are nursing homes.

Here’s the Philadelphia Inquirer’s own headline:

COVID-19 imposes a new death sentence in Pa. prisons

The media and pro-crime activists have spent much of the pandemic demanding that criminals be freed.
What’s the current state of the prison death sentence?

The CCJ report used data through Nov. 13, when 17 people total died of COVID-19 in state prisons. By Dec. 17, the number of deaths grew to 49.

To experience 49 deaths was  a slow day in Wolf and Levine’s nursing home death houses.

How can Democrats and media justify that 8,047 nursing home residents dead isn’t a crisis? But 49 criminals dead is a death sentence?

Are these Democrat priorities to free the criminals and kill the elderly?


Levine was a controversial professor of Pediatrics and Psychiatry at the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and served as chief of the Division of Adolescent Medicine and Eating Disorders before Wolf submitted him/her for Senate confirmation.

After Levine became Pennsylvania Health Secretary, his/her daily press briefings became mired in controversies.

County coroners began speaking out about the disparities that existed in the reporting of the government’s information, versus the data provided to the individual counties.

President of the Pa State Coroners Association, Charles E. Kiessling Jr., said that he “was shocked upon learning there were two deaths” in Lycoming Co. because none have been reported to him.

Kiessling checked with the hospitals in the county and previously asked nursing homes to notify him of any deaths, he said.

According to the York Dispatch, the state Department of Health deemed virus-related deaths, like those from all infectious diseases, to be natural deaths. Under state law, those deaths did not have to be referred to coroners.

Just as Americans learned of the election controversies, this state law directly contradicted statutes governing what coroners need to investigate.

Under that state statute, coroners need to investigate deaths “known or suspected to be due to contagious disease and constituting a public hazard.”

York County Coroner Pam Gay eventually discovered the state had also been categorizing “probable” virus-related deaths in its death toll numbers.

On the day before his Inaguration, Biden said Levine “is a historic and deeply qualified choice to help lead our administration’s health efforts” and praised Levine’s “steady leadership and essential expertise.”


Mainstream media avoids reporting on the troubling leadership decisions Levine drew criticism on for months for allowing “stable” coronavirus patients to be returned to nursing homes during the pandemic. Much  blame fell on Levine for the virus skyrocketing among the elderly in those facilities.

Levine and PA Gov. Tom Wolf

In May, Levine was called out for moving his/her own mother out of a nursing home facility despite the department’s guidance to admit “stable” patients who had contracted the virus.

Levine also repeatedly accused critics of transphobia, as Levine publicly identified as a female rather than his biological gender as a male.

In 2007, at the age of 48, Levine decided to grow his hair long.

In 2011, he began identifying as a woman and changed his name to Rachel.


In 2013, Levine and his wife divorced. 

He was named the grand marshal of the Philadelphia Pride Parade in 2015 and is on the board of the homosexual and transgender advocacy group Equality Pennsylvania.

In 2015, Levine became the physician general and was named acting secretary of health in July 2017. He was confirmed as secretary by the Pennsylvania Senate the following year.

One of the most troubling incidents the media has been unsuccessful in hiding was the actual testimony of a man who suffered a physical examination by Levine when he was 14 years old.  

When Levine was announced as Pennsylvania Health Secretary, he appeared in drag. It prompted the man to write the following testimony in January 2015. I’ve read the entire transcript and decided for the sake of brevity to show these excerpts:

Within months of Richard Levine’s entry into adolescent medicine practice at Penn State-Hershey in 1996, he gave me a full physical exam. I was about fourteen, and I immediately knew that he was too g****mn weird to be looking at my junk.

He had two or three residents or medical students shadowing him, all of them perfectly professional in their demeanor, which I realize in retrospect was no mean feat for young men under the tutelage of such a strange bird...Levine had the weirdest, most inappropriate bedside manner I can recall ever enduring from any clinician.

All the intangibles that cannot be taught or legislated he managed to completely f*** up. It was a brief nightmare, but it was a nightmare nonetheless...

After Levine’s physical, however, I promptly told my dad that he had been a total creep and that I couldn’t stand the thought of seeing him again (or, more accurately, of him seeing me).


My parents found me another adolescent medicine specialist who was socially normal, and I heard and thought mercifully little of him until word got around Hershey that he was now a she, or trying to become a she. I was at once floored and vindicated.

Levine had been so bizarre and inappropriate in his bedside manner with me, at once unctuous, klutzy, and timid, that his having a midlife crisis and deciding that he was a woman seemed perfectly in character. If I had had to name an physician or nurse from my life that I expected to do such a thing, it would have been Levine.

Even today, I can’t adequately articulate what was wrong with him. It’s like Potter Stewart and obscenity. Richard Levine performing genital exams on teenagers or–this is unfortunately his specialty–counseling anorexic girls about their psychological and self-esteem problems is as close to obscenity as one can get without criminal charges.

[…]

The things that were wrong with his bedside manner back in manlier times come through well enough in her professional portrait in our current era of feminization, if not femininity. Levine is just the person to fail a split-second gut check about, my God, do we really want to allow this freak to assume a statewide office overseeing medical policy? Appointing such a deranged wreck to statewide office is not something that plays well in Peoria.

[…]

Being quite familiar with Penn State-Hershey, I can also say that it’s even worse than it looks.

I’m on a cordial first-name basis with a number of physicians, nurses, and social workers who were contemporaries of Levine’s at Hershey. These include some exceptionally intelligent, savvy, thoughtful, well put-together, well-adjusted individuals.

These are natural leaders, people who I have no doubt are mentally and morally fit to hold positions of public trust. At least one of them used to regularly liaise with then-State Senate President Robert Jubelirer. At the institutional level Hershey is pretty dysfunctional, but it has no shortage of excellent candidates for important statewide medical offices. It’s an institution that is less than the sum of its parts.

There are some surprisingly good people on staff at Hershey, but they aren’t all above average. Rachel (sic) Levine is a f***ing clown. She’s (sic) about as low as one can get in the entire organization.

  1. First, I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry regarding Biden’s pick for Health Secretary. The pick speaks volumes regarding the state of mind of Biden and the direction in which he is headed. Seeing the photo, I was immediately reminded of a quote by Ed Koch, Mayor of New York. Following Koch’s defeat to David Dinkins in the Democratic primary (Dinkens went on to become arguably the worst Mayor of NYC in modern times) he was asked if he would again seek office. Koch replied, “No, the people have spoken – and now they must be punished”. And punished they were.
    It would not surprise me that, within a relatively short time, many, if not most, of the people that voted for Biden regret their decision and clamor for a return to sanity. But, they must and will be punished. With God’s help, this Freak Show will be the impetus for America’s return to sanity and morality.

    • Well said, It is a freak show with all his picks, this Levine is embarrassing. It truly shows Bidens lack of brain cells. Some, very few support the clown show. It is waking them up, they voted for him- yet we all have to deal with the repercussions. Maybe this is what it will take for the Biden supporters( democrats) to wake up to what they asked for,

  2. Cuomo Sr or the present Governor?
    Dinkens was mostly inept, yet he had his share of scandals as well. His election was, I believe, due to what today would be called Virtue Signaling. But, he was far from the most corrupt Mayor of NYC.
    Mario Cuomo, father of the present governor was an interesting character. In the early 1980’s he ran against Ed Koch in the Democratic primary for Governor. Cuomo, at the time, was the lieutenant governor. Cuomo won by a landslide and went on to be elected Governor. Koch and Cuomo had a very icy relationship afterwards. This in no small part was due to the campaign that Cuomo waged against Koch during the primary. Handbills had been printed and plastered all over NY, especially Manhattan, carrying the slogan: Vote for Cuomo, Not the Homo! It was later determined that the smear campaign was conceived and carried out by Cuomo’s Campaign Head, none other than his son Andrew, the present Governor. So much for the empathy of the Left.
    An interesting story: In the late 1980’s I had the good fortune to attend an international conference of Governmental Corruption Investigators that was held in NYC. The opening remarks were made by then Governor Mario Cuomo. He arrived with a small contingent of security, mostly New York State Police, and received a polite, but restrained reception, from the attendees. Keep in mind the audience. After his speech a much larger contingent of NYC police could be seen in the lobby. They were not there for Cuomo but were monitoring his exit. Once Cuomo left the hotel and got into his limo a high-ranking NYC Police Officer could be heard saying over his radio: “He’s gone”. Almost immediately sirens could be heard approaching the hotel entrance. Motorcycle cops and patrol cars, sirens blaring and lights flashing approached the entrance. A black limousine stopped in front, cops formed a honor guard and out stepped …Mayor Ed Koch. He entered the hall to thunderous applause. Even the delegations from Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Pakistan and most every other country knew of and admired Ed Koch. Why? Because he loved his cops. At least the good ones. And they loved him. His administrations had some issues, but boy did he put the hammer down on corruption when he found it.
    Koch was considered then a Liberal. But, he was a decent man. He could stand a street corner eating a hot dog talking to passersby and then later attend the opera and convince the “upper crust” to support a charity for the poor. He kept his private life, private, whatever it was. He disliked phonies and the Cuomos were rightfully at the top of that list.
    Sorry for the long winded response to your question. But, the Cuomos trigger something.

      • It’s also hard to fathom. Everything that they’re doing totally goes against common sense. What is wrong with these people. Everything they’re doing is the antithesis of normal and right.

      • Chaos. It is the epicenter of evil. What is up define as down. If they can get you to believe the lie you are a Comrade for life. It will be To embarrassing to admit fooled by the lie so you dig in deeper or fall in despair and hopelessness

        Chaos

        Kind of like the abortion hoax. If you have an abortion there are three outcomes. Rabid defender to justify, despair and hopelessness or come to understanding and seek forgiveness. The hard road is to admit and repent. So what happens is chaos

      • I couldn’t agree more. And I refuse to be told that I’m not seeing what I’m seeing, and to be on the wrong side of history. My mind is my own and I won’t let them have it. Thank you so much for your response. All we can do is pray that people come back to their senses and ask forgiveness. God bless you.
