Biden Nuclear Official Charged With Stealing Woman's Luggage

"This is the guy in charge of the nukes. I mean, he's a big uppity up over at the Department of Energy. And his name is Sam brenton. And he and the, what's the Large Marge over at HHS? Wait, wait. Doctor Rachel Levine. Doctor Levine. She's a bigger. Two peas it upon. That's a big pond. That's a sturdy fellow over there. Anyway, they're both men pretending to be women. Yes. And Sam britton apparently is in hot water. You know, he took a leave of absence of September and nobody, nobody bothered to ask any questions. The media said absolutely nothing about this. Nothing at all. I mean, this was a high profile dude. They were doing stories about this guy and Large Marge like incessantly. Yeah. It was like a day in the life single day. I mean, I was to be honest, I am surprised that these two guys were not picked to be swimsuit models for Sports Illustrated. Fair enough. Just say it. Women of the year. Anyway, now we know what happened to Sam brenton. He is facing up to 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. You'd already did grace baker. What in the world did he do? He stole a woman's luggage. Wait a minute. He's got to be getting paid pretty well, right? Got to. Got to. Would you steal woman's luggage? So the suitcase odor alerted place. This all happened at the Minneapolis St. Paul airport. And officers reviewed video surveillance. Everything they got cameras everywhere in the airport. And they saw Sam brinton taking this woman's luggage. He removed the tag that identified the owners, so this is all intentional. And walked out of the airport. It was

Libby Emmons Shares a Development in the Transgender War on Children

"We have an expert here to help us unpack this. Libby emmons from the wonderful website, the post millennial joins us right now, Libby, welcome back to the program. Thanks so much, Charlie. So Libby, walk us through this story and tell our audience the significance of them changing their guidelines. So W path, world professional association for transgender health is coming up with they have some new guidelines. They are set to release them pretty soon. They're having a big conference up in Montreal, the weekend after this one. With doctor Rachel Levine as a keynote speaker, I'm sure that's very exciting for everyone. So the new standards of care standards of care 8 will be coming out. And they do, as you say, lower the age guidelines for some of these very invasive gender transitions for kids, medicalized gender transitions for kids. There is a lowering of the recommended age for young girls to get double mastectomies of their healthy breasts in order to make them appear more male, that age goes down to 14. The age for hysterectomies and vaginoplasties goes down to 17. And as you say, yes, children's hospitals across the country, many across the world use these standards of care that wpath puts out to guide their practices in performing surgeries and giving these kinds of drugs to kids.

The US Military Is Struggling to Meet Its 2022 Recruiting Goals

"Is one of our great successes as a nation, strongest military ever to exist in the history of the world. NBC News. Every branch of the military is struggling to make its 2022 recruiting calls, officials say. With record low number of Americans eligible to serve, and few of those willing to do it, it's quote, is this the year, the question of sustainability of the all volunteer force. I wonder why. These people. It's an intentional destruction of the U.S. Military. That's what they've been doing. Every branch of the U.S. Military is struggling to meet its fiscal year 2022 recruiting goals. The official said The Pentagon top leaders are now scrambling for ways to find new recruits to fill out the ranks of the all volunteer force, defense secretary Lloyd Austin and deputy secretary Kathleen hicks consider the shortfall is serious issue. Yeah, maybe you should have thought of that before you wanted to mandate an experimental gene therapy and kick out active duty personnel, which Republicans did nothing to oppose. This is a start of a long drought for military recruiting, said retired general Thomas spore of the heritage foundation. He said the military has had not such a hard time signing recruits since 1973. Quote, 2022 is the year we questioned the sustainability of the all volunteer force. Now that NBC News article continues and they say, oh, it's because of the psychological trauma quote they think they're going to be physically or emotionally broken after serving. That's not why. I'll tell you why it's happening. Two things. They don't want to take in a vaccine against their will, and they don't want to serve under this. Put that on screen. Rachel Levine and the new LGBTQIA+ regime in our military and also people want to enlist in a military that plays to win Afghanistan was a humiliation. From Lloyd Austin and Mark milley.

Why Charlie Was Banned From Twitter and Didn't Grovel To Get Back On

"I want to talk about a couple of things in particular, and then we can go into some Q&A, which is obviously the most fun part of all this. So I don't have a Twitter account currently. So I got banned from Twitter. You might know this. So this has been one of the most interesting unexpected news cycles in my whole ten years of doing this. So I got banned from Twitter for participating in dead naming. Do you guys know what dead naming is? Okay, I didn't know before I tweeted. So here's one of the things and I'm technically suspended from Twitter, not banned just to get the words correctly. We'll get into what that means. So here's how you know you're living in kind of a tyrannical moment. When you can't keep track of all the rules that you're supposed to follow, I mean, if you're like me, I can't keep track of all of them, right? They're going to kick you out of a social club or social media because you're like, wait, what even is that? So I tweeted out, I think a month ago about the current health czar, a person by the name calls themselves the name Rachel Levine, whatever, okay? And I said this person used to have a name Richard Levine for 54 years of their life and then transitioned. Okay, whatever. And I said that in a tweet and then you can't even use the name that used to exist, right? Can't do that. It's called dead naming, so you lose your account for that. And then in kind of like a Soviet show trial way, Twitter comes out and they say, okay, in order to get your Twitter account back, you have to admit that you violated our hate speech policies and press the delete button. So we very well could have done that. But happened to the Babylon B like two days before that. And then it happened to us. And I thought to myself, you know, I traveled to these events all across the country. And I tell young people involved at turning point USA, you know, it's worth fighting for conservative values.

Charlie Kirk Details Being Banned From Twitter

"So I'm banned from Twitter, everybody. If you haven't heard. So we're going to walk through that. I actually haven't spoken very much about it publicly to podcasts or two on it. And it's on a very interesting thing. So the way Twitter works, if you don't know, if you violate one of their guidelines, they give you an opportunity to delete the tweet. Basically, okay, engaged in hate speech, you can get your Twitter account back. And so we logged onto our Twitter account, we're like, wait, why don't we have access to our Twitter account anymore? So I tweeted this out and I want to just anyone to tell me if there's anything inaccurate about this tweet. Richard Levine spent 54 years of his life as a man. He had a wife and a family, he transitioned to being a woman in 2011, Joe Biden then appointed Levine to be a four star admiral and is now USA Today has named Rachel Levine as woman of the year true where the feminists, right? Perfectly factual, but now I engaged in something called dead naming. Are you familiar with this phenomenon? No, I had to learn it alongside. Everyone else, including our millions of followers. So dead naming is when you use the name that used to exist of someone who's trans. And super politically incorrect, I guess. You're like not even allowed to mention the birth name anymore. It's now called dead naming. So I guess you can't call like Muhammad Ali cassius clay anymore. Or anyone who's ever changed their name ever. And so because of this Twitter basically says, okay, you're no longer allowed to have access to your account. You have to acknowledge and bend the knee and tell the rest of the world that you engaged in hate speech. And there's just like big red button that says, you can press delete. And look, it's very tempting. You know, we used to do a lot on Twitter. And I thought to myself, you know what, every single semester, I'm traveling, I'm talking to college kids telling them to hold the line that it's worth the cost that you might lose Friends. I'm like, what a hypocrite, I would be. If I just press that red button and told Twitter, like, you know, I did something wrong. Meanwhile, keep fighting on campus, everybody, and see you later. You know what? No, actually

"Admiral you have broken a number of ceilings and since we're talking during women's history month, I do want to ask you about what it has been like to be such a ceiling breaker multiple ceilings. You're the first woman to be the head of the U.S. public health services commission's core, the first ever female four star admiral to lead the organization I find that so fun to say, I admit, you're also the first openly transgender four star officer in the history of the nation's 8 uniform services and one of the few openly transgender government officials at the federal level in the United States and the first to hold an office that required Senate confirmation, are you aware of being so many firsts? How does that feel or are they achievements that you kind of unlocked and then you just gone on about your job? All of the above. So I certainly do recognize the importance of being able to achieve these positions. And it is truly an honor and a privilege. You know, I have always felt very good about my career in medicine and public health because it allows me to help people. So in academic medicine at Mount Sinai and Penn State to help children and teenagers and their families to teach students how to do that, to do clinical research, to run programs about how to help people. And then in public health, this has allowed me in Pennsylvania and now in the United States, from a national perspective to do this with this public health brush to do it from a public health perspective. And I am just so honored for the impact that I can make, but also and I understand the historic nature of what a symbolizes for the LGBTQI plus community and particularly for youth. Now, I stand on the shoulders of many LGBTQI plus individuals trans individuals who came before me. Some of whom are known, some of whom are not known and had to sort of live and work in the darkness. So what I want to do is hope that my appointment into these positions is the first of many to come as we create a more diverse future, a more inclusive future. Diversity always makes us stronger. The diversity in all of its myriad and wonderful aspects of the United States really makes us all stronger. And so it is just an honor to take the uniform for the United States public health service commission core and to serve. At the same time, just really busy on public health. So whether it is COVID-19, whether it is mental health and overdoses, whether it is health equity, climate change, the title ten program we talked about, ending the HIV epidemic, nutrition programs, the blood supply, there are so many different priorities that we have for this office, and at HHS, that keeps me very busy. And that's just great because I get to help more people. We spoke about you being the first and clearly your hope that you won't be the only. What do you think we need to do to ensure that there are second thirds and then we lose track in the best sense? Well, that's the goal is that and vice president Harris said that she's the first, but she won't be the last. And I am firmly convinced that I will not be the last. And hopefully eventually I won't have to be known as the United States assistant secretary for health, that it doesn't have to define who I am. I think that's going to take time as we continue to work on diversity, equity, and inclusion. And I think those three signposts, those three guardrails need to be continually emphasized and continually protected. And I feel very confident that that is what the Biden Harris administration is going to continue to work on in public health and HHS and it really across the administration. So since we are talking during women's history month as a woman in medicine and public health, where do you think we are in terms of representation for women in public health and medicine and what more do you think we need to do to ensure there's full equity and inclusion for women across public health and medicine? Well, we have made so much progress in the last 50, 60 years, 50, 60 years ago, it would have been rather unusual for a woman to be in a college of medicine. When I was in medical school, I don't know precisely, but probably maybe a quarter of the class was female. And now in any medical school and across the country, any law school, any graduate school, at least 50% of the class is female. I think that we have made a lot of progress in that regard. There are still, however, challenges for women in some fields of academic medicine and in some fields of medicine. So there's still more work to do. We need more women in surgical specialties. We need more women in academic medicine, more women, tears of departments, more women deans, more women in charge of public health agencies. So we have made progress, but we have more work to do. And just a final question that we're asking everyone this season, again, since we're here during women's history month, is there and you may have just answered this one statistic or fact about women in public health that either particularly inspires you or maybe enrages you, but then that rage gives you inspiration. Well, I'm going to switch gears a bit for the statistic and talk about teens with eating disorders. Because again, that was my field for decades. So as we had said, we have seen a significant increase in the amount of young people with eating disorders. And across all genders. And across all genders, it's not just young women. We see young men with eating disorders. We see children with eating disorders. So we see eating disorders in LGBTQI plus youth. In fact, we see a lot in LGBTQI plus youth. We see eating disorders in all ethnic groups and all socioeconomic groups. So you can not assume that young person who starts to have symptoms that couldn't be an eating disorder because of any of those characteristics, we see new sort of as an adult as well, which can be very serious. So the risk of eating disorders is really in all age groups and all genders. And so that is why is so important to have access to quality evidence based standard of care. So the statistic, two statistics. One is the 70% increase in the number of calls to eating disorder hotlines. But the promising statistic that people don't realize is that around 80 to 85% of teenagers within erection of osa bulimia also will completely recover. So people tend to have said that eating disorders are chronic illness and you never recover from that. And that is simply not true. And so the vast majority of teenagers with serious eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia can completely recover. That does take time and it takes multidisciplinary treatment with medical and psychological and psychiatric professionals and nutritional professionals, but actually the outcomes are very, very good with expert care. Admiral Levine, thank you so much for working so hard to ensure that every child and every adolescent across our country does have access to the highest quality standard of care rooted in public health and evidence and in science and not in politics. I am very proud that you are first woman head of the U.S. public health service commission.

"Try to protect trans youth and their families. As a parent, it just makes me so angry. It makes me so angry admiral that the Texas state government apparatus is so willing to play politics with kids lives. Just it makes me really angry. That's exactly right. I mean, what is happening in Texas is that the governor and the attorney general have instructed the child protective services in Texas to start investigating parents who are having their children receive gender affirmation treatment by qualified medical and behavioral health specialists. So there's a lot of tremendous important work. The child protective services have to do to investigate and protect children from child abuse and to direct them towards these vulnerable children and families. Again, is wrong and it's egregious. And it traumatizing to kids and to parents. And certainly, again, it is so heartening to hear all that the Biden administration is doing across, not only your department, HHS, but also the Department of Education and the Justice Department. It is simultaneously infuriating that federal government resources now have to be purposed to help protect children because of the kind of political malfeasance of the governor and the attorney general. I guess another question though, too, admiral is for parents or for kids who want to know what you are doing. So not only what your job description is, but what you are doing on issues relating to trans youth or protecting LGBTQI plus youth or any issue, where do they go? Do they go to your website? How do people find out what you're doing to help protect their health or help protect public health? So they would go to the website at the Department of Health and Human Services, which outlines my position as the assistant secretary for health and an admiral in the United States public health service commission corps. And we also are active on social media, particularly on Twitter. So if you follow our Twitter handle, then we are commenting daily on these public health issues of the day. That includes COVID that includes mental health and overdose prevention. That includes health equity. That includes a new office under my portfolio for a climate change in health equity because climate change is happening right now. We are seeing the health impacts of climate change now. It's not some just in time in the future. So we're working very intensively on that. That would be available in our 20 feet. And many other different public health issues. We're taking a quick break, stay with.

"I want to now move to different challenge. It's certainly has troubled me immensely, which is the ongoing effort to restrict abortion care access for women to sometimes remove abortion care access for women and for pregnant people around the country. And the commensurate assault on women's rights, fundamentally. What do you make of this trend from your physician in government, but also just your position as a physician? Well, the Biden Harris administration and our secretary of becerra and myself and our office, we are certainly fully supportive of all reproductive rights for women. And the current state laws and the tending Supreme Court case will see what the result of that is. But certainly there are threats to reproductive freedom and rights for women in the United States and globally. The role that I can play particularly in my office is to make sure that we expand all options within our title ten program. And could you explain what that is for people who don't know what title ten is? So our title ten program has been around for decades now. And that supports contraceptive and reproductive rights care for men and women for teenagers and individuals. And so there are title ten funded clinics throughout the country that fund valuations, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, screening for reproductive cancers, as well as the prescription of appropriate contraception to men and women throughout the nation. One of the public health victories of the last 35 years and more is the significant and continuous decreasing rate of unintended pregnancies in the United States and the decreasing rate of adolescent pregnancies in the United States. That is due to comprehensive sex education and comprehensive access to these reproductive options and contraceptive options through title ten and other programs. So the teenage pregnancy prevention program is in my portfolio as well as that title ten program. Now, I've known about title ten since my training was I worked in a title ten clinic in the 80s that Mount Sinai and New York City. And then in 1996, I actually started a title ten clinic at Penn State College of medicine. So the opportunity to leave that program is just a privilege. That program was significantly impacted by the previous administration, which limited its size and scope. And so we are literally building it back better as the president says, where we are expanding again the title ten program we're increasing it and this is going to be an integral program as we face these reproductive rights challenges. I was a public school kid in Arkansas and the 80s and 90s, and I had age appropriate sex education, and I remember my junior high school admiral. There were, I mean, you had to go to the school nurse, but there were free contraceptives available for kids. And it is challenging for me to recognize that we've lost ground that if I were a kid and those same schools today, I may not have the same high quality age appropriate, but science informed sexual and reproductive health education and the same access to protection. What do you make of the reaction against and the reversal of sexual and reproductive health education for kids in so many parts of the country? Well, you're correct in many parts of the country we have lost ground, and other parts of the country we continue to make progress. But I think it's an enormous challenge from a public health perspective. This should not be a political issue. No. This is a public health and medical issue. And teenagers and young adults, they need access to the correct information about their reproduction and they need access to contraception and sexually transmitted infection prevention such as condoms and from a public health perspective we had made progress when we want to continue to make progress on all of these fronts. This is just basic public health and good medical care for teens and young adults. Something else that is basic good public health and good medical care for teens and young adults is enabling pediatricians and adolescent medicine doctors to provide healthcare to trans youth. And it also has been deeply disturbing to see notably in Texas, but not only in Texas, efforts from the state government to intervene in the ability of pediatricians and adolescent care providers and child services to be able to support trans youth and their families. What can you or the federal government do to try to help protect the safety and the health and the well-being of trans kids? Transgender youth are at risk. They are vulnerable. They are at risk of bullying and harassment and discrimination. And to limit their access to evidence based standard of care, medical treatment, gender affirmation treatment is unconscionable and it's being done for political purposes. And again, these should not be political issues. They should be medical issues, public health issues. They should be issues that young people talk to with their parents and their doctors and that is how their care is decided. Many places around the country, that care is provided by our expert children's hospitals. So I'm going to think about Pennsylvania where I have been for many years. And so the children's hospital of Philadelphia associated with the University of Pennsylvania has a great gender clinic for transgender and gender diverse youth. The Penn State children's hospital, where I was, has a clinic, the university of Pittsburgh, medical center, children's hospital, has a great medical clinic in Pennsylvania. The children's national medical center has a clinic Boston children's hospital, UCLA, children's hospital. I mean, these are not fly by night places. These are expert children's hospitals without standing medical and behavioral health professionals, and they are following very established standards of care, international and national standards of care for the evaluation and treatment of trans youth and gender diverse youth. And the idea that this is being impacted for political purposes is terrible. So this is something that we are going to continue to work on across the Department of Health and Human Services under the president's and the secretary's leadership. So I am going to advocate to protect these vulnerable trans youth. We're going to work on policies that protect these vulnerable trans youth and their families. The office of civil rights has interpreted section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act that you can not discriminate on the basis of sex. And that includes sexual orientation and gender identity. So that includes having access to gender affirmation treatment. And so we do encourage children and teens and families and medical professionals who feel that they are being discriminated against to contact the office of civil rights at HHS. In addition, the Department of Justice is looking at these to see what they can do, the Department of Education as well. So we will do everything we possibly can at the federal level to.

"One of the challenges that as we work through the COVID-19 pandemic, we have to concentrate on. And President Biden said that in his State of the Union address and secretary of visera of HHS has emphasized that and we are working on that across the divisions at Health and Human Services now. And we want to make sure that we work on workforce development for behavioral health that we continue that integration of physical health and behavioral health. And we expand the treatment available for children, adolescents and their families. What advice would you have to any parent who's listening to this and who's really worried about their little kids or their teenagers who think that maybe their children are confronting dealing with anxiety, depression, or other mental health challenges. And as parents, they may feel like they don't know how best to help their kids. What advice would you give to parents? Well, I would take it very seriously. So I would certainly take the opportunity to speak with their child or teenager and explore what the issues are that might be influencing their mood or their anxiety, whether it is the changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic or other social or personal issues that they might have. I think that there are pediatrician or family physician would be a good place to start about their concerns and then there might be a referral made for an evaluation and perhaps some counseling. The school guidance counselor might also be a good place to start. But if they feel comfortable doing that, but I think that parents have a really good gut feeling about their children and their teenagers. And if they feel something's wrong, they should listen to those instincts and explore it and make sure that their child and our teenager gets the help that they need. And there's no shame in asking for help. That is something that we are trying to emphasize over and over again is that we want to get past that stigma associated with mental health issues and associated with seeking help either for oneself or one's family, your mind and your body are connected. And there are so many issues that are mind and body related. And so there is no shame. There is no stigma, and that is one of our priorities at HHS is to work past that stigma and to make sure that people can get the help that they need for themselves and their families.

But the omicron variant, which was very contagious, the numbers are going down. The number of new cases is going down in the United States. And in most areas, globally, the number of hospitalizations is going down and slowly the number of deaths are going down. And so with the extremely effective and safe and important vaccinations and the tremendous work of all of our heroes on the front line, their medical professionals, we are making significant progress. But we can't let our guard down. And we have to remain very vigilant about increases in the future and especially increases that could be due to perhaps another variant in the future. So we're going to make sure that we're prepared. Admiral Levine, I am lucky enough to be able to see you, but for people who can't. You're wearing this beautiful uniform of an admiral. And you are the commander of the United States public health service commissioned core. And I bet a lot of people listening to us and a lot of just Americans broadly may not know. What the public health service commission core is or does or what your responsibilities, leading it are. Could you talk a little bit about the core and what you do with it and as its leader? Well, thank you so much. I am really so honored to be the leader of the public health service commission poor. It is housed within the United States Department of Health and Human Services, and it is led by the assistant secretary for health, which is my position and the United States Surgeon General. The United States public health service commission corps is one of the 8 uniformed services. So there are 6 military services, armed services, but then there's also Noah and there's us. And we are of course the only one that is dedicated solely to protecting, promoting and advancing America's public health. It provides an opportunity for really very dedicated healthcare and public health professionals to work in diverse assignments to work in underserved and vulnerable communities. So that is one of the things that we do. We have four officers that work for the Indian health service. And we have core offices that work in the federal bureau of prisons. We also have core officers really in many of the different divisions of our department and across the government. So we have core offers that are detailed to the CDC, the FDA, and NIH doing research, et cetera, they might be detailed to state or local public health departments and also we also respond to public health emergencies in the United States and the globally and we have been detailed and deployed like never before during the COVID-19 pandemic with thousands of missions that our core offices have done as well as serving to help with unaccompanied minors at the United States border. On operation allies welcome with Afghanistan and refugees and then to serve if there's a hurricane or a flood throughout the United States. So it is just truly an honor to be in this role and to lead such dedicated expert public health and medical professionals. What was your journey into medicine and into pediatrics? When you were a little kid, did you always want to be a doctor? Were you one of those kids ran around with this stethoscope around your neck and once you decided you wanted to be a doctor? Did you know you wanted to be a pediatrician? Well, I really, really loved biology in high school. And then wanted to study medicine. And in medical school, I fell in love with pediatrics. I really found that my compassion, my love of medicine was serving children and teenagers and their families. And so I did my training in pediatrics and then an adolescent medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. I bet a lot of people don't realize that increasingly there really is a focus on adolescent medicine as a subspecialty and all of the various challenges that adolescents that teenagers really confront. I wonder if you could just share kind of what youth health issues, youth mental health issues, are you most concerned about? And what now are you doing in your current position to help address those? You are correct. So adolescent medicine in the 80s, when I was graduating from medical school and doing my training was a rather new field, but particularly drew me to that field was the opportunity to work with that intersection of physical health and mental health, because many of the challenges that teenagers have really lived at that intersection. So I had the opportunity at Penn State in the Penn State Hershey medical center to start the adolescent medicine program. And I started a program for children teens and young adults with eating disorders. So we're talking about those with anorexia nervosa. The levian osam and also binge eating disorder. In my time as the physician general and then the secretary of health of Pennsylvania, I brought that interest in that intersection to dealing with substance abuse and the overdose and opioid crisis. And worked intensively on that in Pennsylvania and still work on that now. We are really seeing a crisis in terms of mental health issues for children and teenagers now, which has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are seeing so many teens with issues such as depression, anxiety, but also an increase in young people even from when I was in practice with eating disorders. And I think that is really.

"Hi, I'm Chelsea Clinton, and this season on in fact, we're celebrating women's history month. I'll be talking with trailblazing women at the top of their fields about their personal journeys, the progress we've made, and how far we still have to go. Today, we're talking about health. Individual patient and public health, with admiral Rachel Levine, the assistant secretary for health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the head of the U.S. public health service commissioned corps. There's a long history of women accomplishing amazing and important things in medicine and public health. Some are well known, many less so. Florence Nightingale is considered the founder of modern nursing, helped improve hygiene and hospitals and was a data visualization pioneer. Clara Barton founded the American chapter of the Red Cross. Virginia Alexander, born in 1899 in the child of enslaved people, studied racism in the healthcare system. Virginia apgar developed the apgar test, which is still used today to assess the health of newborns. Matilda creme was one of the first scientists to recognize that aids was a new disease with potentially catastrophic consequences. Mona Hanna attisha proved that lead was, in fact, influenced water and that elected officials had known, covered it up and lied about the cover up. And those are just a few. There are so, so many more, including my guest, admiral Rachel Levine..

"I will, though, point out as a living breathing, I think, fairly rational and intelligent talk show host on the radio, we have a Supreme Court Justice nominee who is willing to put on the record her acknowledgment that she doesn't know what a woman is. She doesn't know how to define a woman. And in a sense, that's the perfect woke answer. She knows that's a progressive answer. Period. You hear all these people. You hear all these people being suspended and kicked off Twitter and banned from YouTube and they're shutting anybody down. The Babylon bee?

Why They Banned Me From Twitter

"We have a process on how we tweet around here. I actually don't have the Twitter dot com app on my phone, producer Connor does. And we have to go through a process of what is tweeted and what has approved upon and all of that. So there was this tweet that came out in our chat and we went back and forth and I read it four or 5 times. We even watered it down just so you know. We watered it down significantly because we don't want look less so famously said when he was trying to topple the Soviet Union, we have enough martyrs. And don't try to just run into a machine gun nest with your hands up saying, I hate Stalin and they shoot you. Okay, what good is that? That doesn't do any good. But if you get martyred for a good purpose and it moves the ball forward and you're still trying to be prudent about it, that's a separate issue. So enough kamikaze pilots, I suppose what I'm getting at. So we workshopped this tweet that said, I want you to listen carefully. Richard Levine spent 54 years of his life as a man. He had a wife and a family. He transitioned to being a woman in 2011. Joe Biden appointed Levine to a four star admiral and now USA Today has named Rachel Levine as a woman of the year, where are the feminists? Now that sentence I just read to you, I tweeted. And as a result, we have lost access to our Twitter. We have been suspended from Twitter for that specific tweet. It says, quote, you may not promote violence against threaten or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability or serious disease. So that's interesting. I get threatened all the time on Twitter, people wishing me death, attacking me because of my conservative beliefs because of my Christianity and all that Twitter doesn't do anything about it. Nor do I want them to, nor do I care about it because I don't actually define myself by being a victim of some sort of group. I think it's a waste of time and a bad it's just a poor way to exist or to live your life. So then Twitter kind of offers this choice. They cock the gun, they put the gun to your forehead, and they say, okay, you can either click delete and then you get your Twitter back, basically you can acknowledge you did wrong and submit to us or you're not going to get your Twitter back.

"What do you remember about the confirmation process today and what elements or aspects of that entire process. Surprised you well you know. The process was interesting. It was Challenging i think it is for everyone to go through. The confirmation process I i think that it was particularly challenging. Because i'm an openly transgendered transgender women. When i remember most about the process is my gratitude to those at health and human services in the administration that worked to prepare me. Do you recall any moments in which you thought to yourself. Oh my god. I'm trying to make history here now. I was really trying to be very mindful in the moment. That's the best way to deal with with experiences like that so It didn't really hit me about a about the history-making part of it. I was just in the moment. You know answering the senator's questions and and being open and truthful and and working through that process replete tell me afterwards. You celebrated like blunt somewhere or something right. Well you know. There's a copay nineteen pandemic. So i went home and and with my partner my family and we had a very nice dinner Girl we got to celebrate with you. That's not the way we make history in our community. We gotta make sure. There's some confetti and some glitter right johnson. Today you mentioned earlier about the work that you did witnessing and obviously tending to people dealing with hiv aids during the early days of the crisis in new york The cdc recently released a study a report dealing with hiv aids With a lot of encouraging news of one particular does sort of raise my eyebrow and that was twenty. Three percent of the people who are eligible for prep are currently prescribed. Prep that means about seven. Percents are not what can be done to close that gap so very important point. You know i in the eighties. When i was taking care of patients who all passed away they all dot. If you had told me that we have a medicine that you could take once a day that if you were at risk would prevent hiv. If you had medicines that people with hiv take every day and that would keep them their viral load down and we keep them undetectable And and duly calls you and they would be a not able to transmit the disease dan I'm transmittable than i would have thought that those were a medical miracle and we have all of those things but we still have issues in terms of health equity. We have to reach communities that we are not reaching with these with with these medications with these protocols and so that is why health equity is such a critical part of of of my priorities at as the assistant secretary for health. And i know. It's one of the secretaries priorities. And the president's priorities we're going to be working across the administration and the department on health equity in particular regards to hiv to make sure that people have access to these These extremely powerful and and important medications the work you're doing and it's so fantastic to hear the work you're doing particularly when it comes to. Hiv aids is so dear and close to our community but obviously you are interested in a gun involved with medicine for a whole spectrum of reasons..

That's one of the things that he has made it very very clear that when you're talking about disparities of health equity is very important and you're gonna start seeing already seen as we get further and further into the administration that that's going to be address when you think about your time working with the aids crisis obviously working during the pandemic years from now. Where do you want people to say about you. What would you like your legacy to be. Well that i gave it my best. I i mean. I've worked with hiv for forty years It's been dominating motivation of my professional career. And i think we've had some significant successes from the research that we've done. The clinical trials the development of drugs and importantly for me the fact that george w bush president george w bush gave me the opportunity to put together the pep fall program. Which is you know is really. I think one of the most important public health programs that we've ever established on an international basis and for those who don't know. Could you explain what the program manson what it does. That's the president's emergency plan for aids relief in two thousand and two president Sent me a few others on. A fact-finding missions southern africa to determine if we could establish a program that would transform hiv care prevention and treatment in the developing world particularly southern africa. Because by that time we already had life saving drugs that were readily available to people in the developed world and president bush said to me to others but when he sent me to africa to see if we could put a program together he said we have a moral obligation as a rich country to see that other people in other parts of the world. Don't suffer and die from a disease. Nearly because of where they were born or their location so go to african figure out a way. Can we do something with therapy with care with prevention to have people in developing world have a chance to live good lives in normalize despite hiv. So we spent many many months putting together with turned out to be the president's emergency plan for aids relief pet for which the united states has invested billions and billions and billions of dollars in.

The headlines are all about how Joe Biden's picking a transgender person, but the real headline should be this woman. Took her own mother out of the nursing homes. Because she knew how poorly they were being run and that people were being sent back in who had Cove. It. Yeah, I know. Yeah. Richard, formerly known as Richard Levin, now known as Rachel. Levin and and how it just started to make me think about all of the people that Biden's chosen So far I started going over a list. It was like, Oh, who's Who of Hacker Gramma, John Kerry, Marcia Fudge. Everyone yelling. Judy was just made seven million bucks in the last two years, making speeches We were gonna have on Cassie Smith deal. She's the new executive director of America Rising, She's going to go over all of these hacks. I mean, Anthony Blinken is another one. But how does the secretary of state nominee a complete deep swamp creature? Janet Yellen. She made a lot of money giving speeches, right? Yes. Who? Who said that famous line at a certain point Having you made enough money? Yeah, He said that about a half a billion dollars ago. But how he just to get back to the Hillary Clinton comment cause I do think you're right about that. It's from her podcast. Who listens to that podcast. That's a real mystery to me, but I think what you're seeing, and I'm gonna make a comparison here because I've had this show now for about three weeks. I think everyone for joining us. But it is hard sometimes when you can't revert back to something, and I think that's for them is Donald Trump. He's been their security blanket for the last four years. Any time that they're in a jam, they can say they can shift to Donald Trump. And for the last couple years how if I do my new segment, I can always shift to you. I know that you're gonna be able to carry the segment if I don't know what I'm talking about. So when they don't have something to say, or if they if they don't believe in their ideas their go to is back to trump. And that's what just texted me. Something is still to grace that's from the daily caller Headlining Governor Cuomo threatens lawsuit against Biden Administration of Covert 19 Relief fund, So I guess we know what the pivot Is going to me. Oh, no. Yeah, it is. Isn't it terrible when they turn on one another such honorable patriotic men Speaking of Ah, Cuomo, Howie, I'm guessing you heard some of the cuts we played of Chris Cuomo. He's now preaching for Nonviolence. And he thinks we all need to rise above their hate. How about the Washington Post Today they talked, they said there's a great apprehension in the country about the future of the iconic monuments Buildings in D. C. They were practically cheering on the mob in Lafayette Square when they were trying that when they were throwing a noose around the Andrew Jackson's head. Remember that the statue they they didn't care when they tried to burn down the ST John's Church. Well, the president's went now now that now now that Biden is gonna be the president, these air, iconic monuments and buildings, these buildings can go from racist, too sacred really fast, depending on who's in charge. Yeah, It's kind of like ice cream. You know, Donald Trump was a war criminal for taking two scoops ice cream. Now, now, Joe Biden melts our hearts with his ice cream. It's so true and the hypocrisy of the left right now, Howie. I said this earlier, but every day I wake up and I think who's gonna win the competition today? For the least amount of self awareness. Is it gonna be Politicians. Or is it going to be the media and I have to say the media usually takes the cake nine out of 10 times, whether it's Don lemon or Chris Cuomo or Wolf Blitzer or Jake Tapper talking about the big lie. Yeah. They have a virus of this information These air all lines I put into my column, Grace. I looked them up this morning as I as I came out fervently for the for the new operation Warped..

Has selected Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine. To be his assistant secretary of health, leaving her poised to become the first transgender federal official to be confirmed by the U. S. Senate. Pediatrician and former Pennsylvania physician, General Levine Or perhaps, Levin? I don't know. Was appointed to her current post by Democrat governor, Democratic Governor Tom Wolfe in 2017, making her one of the few transgender people serving in elected or appointed positions nationwide. She won. She won past confirmation by the Republican majority Pennsylvania Senate. So that's interesting Aunt has emerged as the public face of the state's response to the Corona virus pandemic. Dr Levine will bring steady leadership and essential expertise that we need to get people. Through the pandemic, no matter what their zip code, their race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, identity or disability and meet the public health needs of our country in this critical moment and beyond, President elect, Biden said in the state. I feel like he's being really thoughtful about all of his picks. I think he's really trying to Is diverse is possible and at the same time getting people that are the most qualified for the job because this doctor said I was reading a little bit about her extremely accomplished and respected and Look if he's being so conscientious about making sure that a lot of people are representative, where are there any Maga people in there? Any maggot people it is, huh? Oh, believe me, there are maggot people. Everywhere, like termites throughout the various organizations is not going to. He's not going to consciously appoint any maggot people to his administration. Brett Tolman, the former U. S attorney for Utah. Is making headlines by making big bucks lobbying the White House for pardons for his clients, huh? He's made news before. Uh, now he was the U. S attorney for Utah. He was an advocate for women who are victims of violent crimes. He was a crusader for reforming the legal system. More recently, however, Tolman has been advising the Trump Administration on pardons and commutations. And, according to The New York Times, he's been collecting tens of thousands of dollars and possibly more lobbying for clemency for the son of a former Arkansas senator, the founder of a notorious online drug marketplace, Silk Road and also a New York City socialite. Pleaded guilty in a fraud scheme. So he has been making the case for those three different people and others to the Trump Administration for clemency or pardons and and these people are paying him. A good chunk of change to make those Pleased to the Trump administration. I'll Brett, I'm not going to tell you how to make a living, or how not to make a living. Just know that the stain will go with you. That's think is going to stay on. You don't come off in a tomato, wash. Donald Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate will happen. Let's get on with it. What does Mitch McConnell say about the whole thing? He says, Listen, uh When we have this trial in the Senate What You know, it's a vertical. It'll be a little conscience. That's why I will be more. Yeah, I hope so. Because I hope that's exactly what it is. I hope you examine your conscience. Senators. Really? And if you vote guilty if you are Republican who votes guilty It's it will also say. You know, I've been wrong this whole time or it will say I knew I was wrong this whole time, and I didn't care. Yeah. So There you go. But again, not enough tomato soup in the world to bathe in for stink.

'There's No Quick Fix For COVID-19,' Cautions Pennsylvania Secretary Of Health

"Going to talk more now about how states are preparing to distribute those vaccines as they become available, and to do that, we're joined by Dr Rachel Levine. She is the Pennsylvania health secretary and also president of the Association of State Health Officials. Dr Levine welcome 12 Things considered. Thank you very much. I'm very pleased to be here. Will you walk us through the logistics for when Pennsylvania first receives its initial shipments of vaccines? I mean, where does it go? How do you keep it cold? What do you actually have to do? Sure. So we're all waiting the meeting of the FDA on December 10th. And then they will consider all of the data of submitted by the Fizer Corporation for the first vaccine. When they issue their emergency use authorization or you away, then operation Warp speed will distribute the vaccine. To hospitals in Pennsylvania and throughout the nation just to get specific is the federal government or or fives or corporation, sending it to the state of Pennsylvania to distribute it to hospitals. I I asked, because this vaccine has to be kept incredibly cold. It's not just like you can send a bottle of aspirin, right? So you are correct. This is an ultra cold chain vaccine that has to be kept at minus 80 C or or Celsius. So it will be operation works speed that will be sending it to the hospitals that we designate now will depend, of course about how much we're going to get, and it comes in trays of 975 bottles. So these have to be hospitals that can Deal with the cold chain and can deal with that amount of vaccine to then administer. Now, the CDC recommends that health care workers and residents of long term care facilities should get first access to these vaccines. That's a large number of people have you decided whether you're going to start With older healthcare workers or people with underlying conditions are only doctors and nurses who see covert patients. I mean, how are you going to prioritize within the priority groups? Sure. So we're going to be developing a decision tree for hospitals to use and we'll be finishing that this week. I want to point out that the distribution for the nursing home and other long term kitchen facilities Goes in a different way. So operation works speed working with Walgreens and CVS will be receiving the vaccine with those two pharmaceutical companies, and then they will be working to administer the vaccine in nursing homes and other long term care facilities. Do you have a sense of how many doses The first shipment is likely to include and how that compares to the number of people in this top priority. First group, so we don't exactly know how many doses we're going to get in the first shipment. So you know, we had lots of discussions with Operation Warp speed, you know, will be looking to attack the end of next week or certainly when they're going to be sent out to know exactly how many doses we're going to get in the first week. And then the expectation our weekly shipments to the hospitals and to Walgreens and CVS for those distributions. I gotta ask a lot of depending here on the ability of operation Warp speed to carry this out effectively And with Corona virus testing, the federal government kind of fell down. I mean, There weren't enough tests. Some of the tests were not accurate. Initially. How confident are you in the ability of this Trump Administration program to get this very difficult job done? We have heard directly from General Purna. You know, we have confidence in them, but I'm sure it will be a significant logistical challenge. This has to occur throughout the United States, all at the same time to all of the states, the territories. And then some specific large cities. And are you also concerned about the smooth handoff from one administration to another? I mean, if the distribution depends on Operation Warp speed, which is a Trump administration program will the Trump Administration only has so many more weeks in office. Now, the Department of Defense under General Karna, you know, will still be there in terms of continuity, But in terms of the representatives from helping human services and the administration, we would like to think that they'll be robust conversation. Nation and communication as the administration transitions. Obviously, that has not happened as much as it should have yet, But we're hoping that all those communications will be going on forthcoming. Just to get back to the scale of the logistical challenge here. This is a vaccine requires two doses weeks apart. Do you have the infrastructure to track and time who has had a first dose when yes, we do. But that is a information technology challenge in terms of making sure that we get the right vaccine into the right person at the right time. And then not only the visor vaccine, but the Madonna vaccine that also is a to dose vaccine. We've heard so many states talk about the extreme budget pressure that they are under and this is an expensive undertaking. Do you have the money? You need to do it? And if not, do you think the federal government is ready to provide it well, it will be essential for the federal government to provide more funding to the States territories in cities that will be tasked with ministering the vaccine. Operation works speed cost billions and billions for the development of the vaccine on Lee $340 million has been allocated for the next part of the mission, the distribution and the administration so clearly states and territories and cities. They're going to need more funding from the federal government to finish and accomplish this mission. These issues you're talking about could occupy you for more than 40 hours a week every week, and you are at the same time dealing with a spike in Corona virus cases and having to contact trace people who may have come in contact with exposed individuals, overcrowded hospitals. How are you juggling all of this at once? Well again. This is the public health challenge of a lifetime. I don't think any of us have seen a 40 hour week. You know, in our memories I stand corrected three ways to deal with the pandemic. You can work on containment that involved the testing and contact tracing very hard to contain a virus that has spread this far. For example, Today we are reporting 11 over 11,000 new cases. In Pennsylvania. It's impossible to contact that many people, so we have to prioritize. We prioritize to congregate, setting such as nursing homes and other long term care facilities, Correctional institutions, schools, etcetera, Then we have mitigation. Basic mitigation sets his mass and hand washing and social distancing. And then in Pennsylvania, you know we had to have a stay at home advisory. And you know, we have really tried to recommend that people avoid not only large gatherings but small gatherings. And then they'll be the vaccine those of the tools and the public health to box that we have to work with. When you're dealing with community spread on the level that we are seeing now, where there is so much of this disease and so much transmission of it. Do you have to change your approach? I mean it, Zeke gone from hand to hand combat to fighting an army out. Imagine it has And so the basic public health tool of containment, which we would do for a small measles outbreak or for it outbreak of tuberculosis? That is extremely difficult for public health to do when we're seeing this type of widespread community transmission, and then we have to pivot to more and more mitigation. It's a very unpopular it is made public health officials sometimes unpopular throughout the nation, but they're absolutely essential to try to stop the spread. And then we have the light at the end of the tunnel, which is the vaccine, but there's no quick fix to hope in 19. After Rachel Levine, Pennsylvania Health Secretary and president of the Association of State Health officials. Thank you for talking with us in the middle of everything else that you were doing. My pleasure. Thank you very much.
