  8. Biden* Dude in a Dress Appointee Dodges Questions About Whether Children Should Be Able To Transition…

    Dr. Rachel Levine evaded questions from Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Thursday regarding Levine’s support for giving children puberty blockers and sex-change surgeries.

    Levine, who is Resident Joe Biden’s nominee for assistant Health and Human Services (HHS) secretary, fielded questions from various lawmakers during a confirmation hearing, but Paul asked especially blunt, pointed, and graphic questions.

    “Genital mutilation has been nearly universally condemned,” Paul began, citing the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children’s Fund, the United Nations Population Fund. “According to the WHO, genital mutilation is recognized internationally as a violation of human rights. Genital mutilation is considered particularly egregious because, as the WHO notes, it is nearly always carried out on minors and is a violation of the rights of children.”

  14. Biden illegally makes millions off the ChiComs and other scum through his son Hunter and they go after Trump when it's likely all on his tax preparers and accountants if there's anything wrong. He likely signed on the dotted line after trusting them to prepare his taxes correctly. If they didn't do it right, it should be on them.
