During Pandemic, HHS Secretary Has First Substantive Meeting With Biden. It’s Been Almost a Full Year.

Wait, what? Bold mine.

Becerra and his allies in the administration are embarking on an effort to bulk up the secretary’s role, from having a substantive meeting with Biden, which he has never done, to appearing at White House news briefings, which he has also never done.
Though White House officials say they’re eager to see him step up — “He has the ability to communicate, and I think he values that communication,” White House Covid-19 task force director Jeff Zients told CNN — some people familiar with the internal conversations say skepticism remains that Becerra will be able to.
The attempted reboot for Becerra comes as the Biden administration faces criticism for its public health messaging on the pandemic, something sources inside the administration say the former California congressman and state attorney general could help solve.
So during a pandemic, the Health and Human Services Secretary has not had a substantive meeting with his boss for his entire tenure? It’s been almost a YEAR. Who the hell is running this government?

    “Who the hell is running this government?”
    Well, it certainly is not Senile Joe.
    I guess I wonder why he would meet with Truck Driver Joe? He just gets his false information from the fake doctor Fauci.

    Becerra is at HHS because he is an Abortion Warrior and No-Borders lawyer.

    Asking who is in charge is a very legitimate question. Observation would tend to indicate nobody and yet everyone… all at the same time.

    Power hates a vacuum. With no fully aware person at the helm, everyone is breaking off what power they can get, which also leaves the people in charge of their own pond with no guidance. That works well for the power hungry ones (not for us…), but the problem with drones is that they need programming. All the ‘appointees for payback’ just looking for an easy paycheck may get the light shown on them, just like this one. No knowledge of the job and no direction from superiors is a very bad recipe for leadership. A no-borders LAWYER made the head of HHS during ‘the great pandemic of our time’? It sure seems like Joe had enough doctors to pay back where he could have picked someone inside the health field…

    Here’s what your substantive meeting got the country…

    >The $30 million grant program will distribute funds to nonprofits and local governments to make drug use safer and ‘advance racial equity’

    >A spokesperson for HHS said included in these kits could be pipes for users to smoke substances like crack cocaine and crystal methamphetamine

    What’s the law that bars the president from acting to directly support his family? This is definitely a violation — if Twitter will allow people to link to the photos on Hunter’s laptop…

    >Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., sent a letter to Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra on Tuesday expressing her “grave concerns” about the department’s program that could reportedly use taxpayer money to distribute crack pipes to drug addicts.

    Yeah, I’m so glad that Becerra decided to get off his ass.

    Good old Snopes has the Administration’s back though..

    >In early 2022, the Biden administration endeavored to advance racial equity by distributing crack pipes to drug users.

    >We are issuing a rating of “Mostly False.”

    >It’s true that the grant description required the provision of smoking kits — an established component of harm reduction strategy — but in reality, those kits constituted just one of several sub-components of an even longer list of requirements for grant recipients. In other words, while outraged media coverage focused almost exclusively on “crack pipes,” this was actually only a very small part of the program.

    Only in liberal mindlessness can one say “Mostly False” and follow up with “It’s true … but…”

    Fucking commies.

    So basically, the crack pipes are being provided, but the whole 30 million wasn’t spent on them so the claim that they are being provided is mostly false? WTF…

    One way to get of mandates, like masks, is to start a recall of the mayor or others.
    That happened where I live and the mask mandate was dropped immediately.
    Of course, to Lying Karen Pervert Le Roi, this is anecdotal evidence, but it looks like that most liberal governors are realizing their chances are fading the longer with mandates.
