HHS Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine Sworn In As First Trans 4-Star Admiral


HHS Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine just made history.

She has made history as the “first-ever female 4-star admiral.”

Many people will note, however, that she is not the first-ever female-born 4-star admiral.

As HHS Assistant Secretary of Health, we are supposed to look up to Levine for health guidance and advice.

Levine was appointed by Biden himself earlier this year.

As a 4-star admiral, Levine will now lead the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.

More details below:

Levine made headlines earlier this year for her controversial stance of supporting gender surgery among minors.

The Left has championed children being able to get their sex changed.

In some instances, they want this to happen without parental consent.

The New York Post confirms Levine’s historic day:

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.

Becerra went on to describe Levine as “a highly accomplished pediatrician who helps drive our agency’s agenda to boost health access and equity and to strengthen behavioral health” and “a cherished and critical partner in our work to build a healthier America.”

Many social media users are mocking Levine.


Because Levine claims that she will “follow the science.”

Rather than talking about Levine’s credentials…

Rather than talking about Levine’s qualifications…

The media is focusing on the fact that she is the first openly transgender four-star admiral.

Side note: does this mean that there have been closed four-star admirals?

CBS News confirms:

Assistant Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine made United States history Tuesday as the first openly transgender four-star officer in any of the nation’s eight uniformed services, the Department of Health and Human Services announced. The former pediatrician’s appointment also made her the nation’s first female four-star admiral in history.

“This is a momentous occasion and I am pleased to take this role for the impact I can make, and for the historic nature of what it symbolizes,” Levine said Tuesday in a statement. “May this appointment be the first of many like it as we create a more inclusive future.”

Levine was sworn in as a four-star admiral at a ceremony Tuesday, making her the highest ranking official in the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, according to the HHS. Levine will lead the department’s 6,000 Public Health Service officers, respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and “build a stronger foundation for a healthier future,” the HHS said.
