Sen. Lisa Murkowski was one of just two Republicans who joined every single Democrat in voting on March 24 to confirm transgender man, Rachel Levine, as the Assistant Secretary at the Dept. of Health and Human Services.

Murkowski was joined by fellow liberal Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine.

Levine, a biological male who now identifies and dresses as a female, has come under heavy criticism for backing experimental cross-sex hormones for gender confused youth. In 2017, he recommended such intervention for teens, lamenting the fact that some gender confused kids go through the “wrong puberty.” He advocated using powerful sex-reassignment hormones to interrupt the natural process of puberty.

Many conservatives have expressed concern that a so-called “trans woman” activist who champions experimental treatments on gender confused youth should will now oversee controversial transgender policy in the U.S.

As Pennsylvania Health Secretary, Levine has also come under fire for pulling his mom from a nursing home during the COVID outbreak, while telling nursing facilities to admit people who had tested COVID positive.

In February Levine was questioned by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) about his support of “surgical destruction of a minor’s genital mutilation” and hormone blockers.

“Like surgical mutilation, hormonal interruption of puberty can permanently alter and prevent secondary sexual characteristics,” Paul said. He noted that the American College of Pediatricians reports that 80-95% of prepubescent children with gender dysphoria will experience resolution by late adolescence if not exposed to medical intervention and social affirmation.

“Dr. Levine do you believe minors are capable of making such a life saving decision as changing one’s sex,” he asked.

Levine completely avoided the question, stating, “Transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field with robust research and standards of care that have been developed.”

 This spurred Paul to refine his question.

“The specific concern is about minors,” Paul said. “Do you support the government intervening to override the parent’s consent to give a child puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and or amputation surgery of breasts and genitalia?”

Levine would not answer the question.

    Murkowski is part of “the swamp” that wants to destroy us. Murkowski is for herself and not for Alaska or
    Western Civilization. She still thinks she has power. We will see what happens. If the Democratic gangsters will fly up people to counter the progress of we conservatives. They did it for 2020 when Fairbanks had two strong conservatives running and Adam Wool and Grier Hopkins cheated their way into office with the help of “the swamp” being paid to come up and go door to door with ballots for the people to fill in. There are questions about the Dominion Voting machine that Giulani watched in Georgia using the unclaimed ballots to fill in the left candidates. This could easily be done with all of the Dominion Voting Systems. Legislators such as Wool and Hopkins here in Fairbanks and Murkowski in Congress have no Truth in them and find their in cheating, helping with dishonest voting. There is no integrity or Conscience involved. These traitors should not be making decisions on behalf of Alaskans.

  • NAV says:

    Murkowski is controlled by DEMONS and in the end before the LORD she will be held ACCOUNTABLE!!!

  • Linda says:

    Did Murky vote for this because she is one? Or wanting to become a ‘man’? Something happened in these people’s past needing to find a way to receive attention! Murky never had counseling! Sad!

  • Steve says:

    Lisa is a degenerate. Power is her GOD.

  • Randy says:

    As our Representative in DC she only represents HER ideology not her constituents in Alaska, she’s got to be voted out then remain in DC with her fellow swamp creatures

  • Steve Peterson says:

    She never was this radical in the past. But now, since we all know she is a leftist, and since the Republican Party has censured her, the Catholic Church has 9sorta) excommunicated her, she truly has nothing to lose by being a full-on, in-your-face lefty. I think she is actively thumbing her nose at traditionalists, and trying to glom on to any leftist votes she can garner. Plus, rank choice voting has her back.
    Pray judgement down on her, it is our best and only tool.

  • Jean says:

    I see dementia is a highly contagious disease there in Washington D.C. Senator Murkowski has clearly lost her mind due to some reason. As a Catholic I should say I will pray for her, but my past prayers to change her voting judgements have clearly not been heard by the Almighty.

    • Lobo says:

      I totally agree with you, Jean.. I would wonder, however, if Murkowsky simply refuses to hear anything that the Almighty says.

      • Jean says:

        Yes, this is most likely the case. If Sen Murkowski is reading any of this, I apologize for my uncharitable comments above. I do not know what you are up against there in Washington and I suspect that your lengthy immersion into that world has left you with a very confused idea of who you are and who you represent. I do promise to continue to pray for you and for our country. Gob bless you and continue to guide you so you may open your heart and hear his voice.

      • Jean says:

        Wishing for an edit feature on this comment board. *God instead of Gob:)

  • Michael S Totten says:

    I ran into her at the kenai Peninsula college years ago, I was escorted out because I told her to her face what i thought of her. I was a student there at the time. Needless to say,, I recieved alot of support from the other students. They do not like her in alaska. The native Corp keeps buying her elections. It’s sad.

  • Charlie Bussell says:

    once Lisa went all in with her pals at those merchants of death at Planned Parenthood she was lost and it is only down hill until she finds the Lord and changes her wicked ways…

  • Greg in Homer says:

    Like most conservatives, I have a red hot burning passion to vote against Lisa Murkowski. Anyone that votes to impeach a private citizen (unconstitutional!) or votes for someone with a mental illness to a cabinet position (Rachel Levine!) deserves to lose her seat in the US Senate. I will vote for the green candidate, the Dumocrat, the communist, or even write in Joe Miller if I have to. I am voting against this RINO disappointment/faux Republican, Lisa Murkowski. I would rather vote for an crafty idiot like Mark Begich, than a traitor like Lisa Murkowski.
