Biden Health Sec. Pick Supports At Birth Abortion, Has Radical Anti-Pro Life Agenda
“Becerra is aggressively pro-abortion and a foe of free speech”; “He is an extremist who has no regard for conscience or protecting life”
Senator Rand Paul sounded a warning Monday about Joe Biden’s pick for The United States Secretary of Health and Human Services supporting late term and even at birth or after birth abortions.
Speaking about California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who has been tapped up for the role by Biden, Paul said “I’m concerned about the reports that say that he’s been a champion for late-term abortion and at the time of birth abortion, and that’s outside the norm.”
“Even pro-choice people a lot of times will say they believe in some restrictions, but to believe in sort of complete, unlimited abortion until the time of birth or after, I think is something that’s a very radical position,” the Senator added.
“I would hate to have him in charge of trying to dispense government monies towards that kind of policy,” Paul urged.
“So, we’ll look long and hard and I’ll try to keep an open mind, but my first impression of what I’m hearing about him is that he may be way outside the mainstream of what anybody in Kentucky would think is right,” Paul emphasised, referring to his state.
As noted by The National Review, the selection of Becerra as HHS is odd because he “has no experience working at HHS and no medical background. He has never been chief executive of a state, or even of a large, complex organization.”
However, what Becerra does have is a history of being a social justice warrior on health in California.
The New York Times reports that “he has been at the forefront of legal efforts on health care, leading 20 states and the District of Columbia in a campaign to protect the Affordable Care Act from being dismantled by his Republican counterparts.”
“He has also been vocal in the Democratic Party about fighting for women’s health,” the Times adds.
Translate that from newspeak and it means ‘abortion’.
Three years ago, Becerra attempted to have pro-life activists prosecuted after they exposed Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies to biotech companies by obtaining audio of officials bragging about it.
Even the uber liberal LA Times called Becerra’s actions a “disturbing overreach.”
The criminalization of investigative journalism. This is a national disgrace. https://t.co/ykOSGmonVa— James O'Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII) March 29, 2017
At the time, Becerra claimed he was protecting the “privacy” of Planned Parenthood officials, saying in a statement “The right to privacy is a cornerstone of California’s Constitution, and a right that is foundational in a free democratic society. We will not tolerate the criminal recording of confidential conversations.”
When the activists were indicted, Planned Parenthood celebrated Becerra ‘sending a clear message’ not to mess with their baby organ harvesting practice:
The Center for Medical Progress is still fighting the case with Becerra having brought 15 felony counts against CMP’s David Daleiden and Planned Parenthood also having launched a $7 million dollar racketeering lawsuit against Daleiden and the investigators who aided him.
National pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA) also slammed the announcement to pick Becerra as head of the HHS, noting that “Far from ‘uniting’ the country, Biden has proven yet again he is an extremist on abortion.”
SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said “Becerra is aggressively pro-abortion and a foe of free speech. As attorney general of California, he continued what his predecessor Kamala Harris started by persecuting citizen journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood’s role in baby parts trafficking.”
“Not only that, he went all the way to the Supreme Court to try to force California’s pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise and refer for abortion – a policy the Court rejected as unconstitutional. In Congress, he even voted in favor of partial-birth abortion,” Dannenfelser noted.

❌ continued persecution (started by predecessor Kamala Harris) of citizen journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood’s role in baby parts trafficking
❌ tried to force pro-life pregnancy centers to refer for abortion

The Alliance Defending Freedom’s Kirsten Waggoner also weighed in:
ADF had to go all the way to the Supreme Court to stop Becerra from forcing religious pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise for abortions. He is an extremist who has no regard for conscience or protecting life. There’s nothing moderate about this pick. Nothing. https://t.co/4dD3npBO5v— Kristen Waggoner (@KWaggonerADF) December 7, 2020
Senator Tom Cotton also slammed the announcement to pick Becerra as head of the HHS:
Xavier Becerra spent his career attacking pro-life Americans and tried to force crisis pregnancy centers to advertise abortions.— Tom Cotton (@SenTomCotton) December 7, 2020
He’s been a disaster in California and he is unqualified to lead HHS.
I’ll be voting no, and Becerra should be rejected by the Senate. https://t.co/mEvpMrqPeH
In a second tweet Cotton also noted that “Xavier Becerra’s lockdowns in California have been a disaster. Liberal politicians dine on caviar at the French Laundry while working Californians are locked down and playgrounds are closed. Now, Joe Biden apparently wants California’s lockdowns for the whole country.”
Students for Life of America/SFL Action announced a nationwide petition in opposition to Becerra to head Health and Human Services, calling on Americans to contact their elected representatives.
President Kristan Hawkins notes in the petition that “The goal of Healthcare appointees should be to protect patients’ medical interests, not abortionists’ financial interests.”
“The Department of Health and Human Services should not be run by a radical activist who puts his friends in the abortion lobby first, over the needs of women,” Hawkins urged.
Anger As Djokovic Withdraws From US Open; STILL BANNED From Entering U.S. Due To Vaccination Status
“Literally the healthiest male on the planet is denied entry”
The world’s number one tennis player Novak Djokovic has withdrawn from the Miami Open and the U.S. Open because he is still banned from entering the country owing to his vaccination status.
While the news is being reported as a “visa dispute,” the reason Djokovic cannot complete is because he refuses to take the COVID vaccine.
Djokovic has appealed for a special dispensation to play in the tournaments, given that the restrictions are slated to end in April anyway.
Djokovic requested a vaccine waiver, however it was rejected by the Homeland Security Department in a blatant move to once make an example out of the premier athlete.
Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio of Florida expressed support for the 22 time grand slam victor, and called on Congress to throw out Joe Biden’s “bogus vaccine mandate.”
“It has come to our attention that your administration is in receipt of a request to waive the current vaccine mandate for international travelers entering the United States from top-ranked men’s tennis player Novak Djokovic,” the Senators wrote in a letter.
“We write to urge you to grant the requested waiver, which is necessary to allow Mr. Djokovic to compete in the Miami Open professional tennis tournament held in our home state of Florida beginning March 19, 2023,” the pair added.
The letter continues, “In September 2022, you plainly declared to a national audience on 60 Minutes that ‘the [COVID-19] pandemic is over,’ and, earlier this year, Dr. Anthony Fauci published a professional article acknowledging the limited efficacy of vaccines in protecting against respiratory pathogens, like the novel coronavirus.”
“In light of these changing circumstances, and admissions by you and members of your own administration, the current restrictive vaccine mandate which you have maintained for international travelers entering the United States seems outdated and worthy of rescission,” the Senators urge.
They add, “Mr. Djokovic is a world-class athlete in peak physical condition who is not at high-risk of severe complications from COVID-19. It seems both illogical and misaligned with the opinions of your own administration to not grant him the waiver he requests so that he may travel to the U.S. to compete in a professional event.”
How long are they going to carry on with this?

Moderna Backpedals, Guarantees ‘Free’ Covid-19 Vaccines After Demand Collapses
mRNA vaccine maker Moderna has backpedaled on a January plan to charge $110 to $130 per dose of Covid-19 vaccine (up from $26 per dose for booster shots), and is now promising that people won’t have to pay for the jab once the US Government stops buying shots.
“Moderna remains committed to ensuring that people in the United States will have access to our COVID-19 vaccines regardless of ability to pay,” the company said in a statement, adding that the vaccine “will continue to be available at no cost for insured people whether they receive them at their doctors’ offices or local pharmacies.”
Those without insurance – or whose insurance is inadequate, will be able to get jabbed “at no cost” via a Moderna assistance program.
As The Epoch Times notes,
Because the COVID-19 vaccines were added to the child immunization schedule, children whose families cannot pay for the vaccine will be eligible to receive them for free, with taxpayers covering the cost.
That would happen through a program called Vaccines for Children.
Advisers to the government, who recommended the addition to the schedule, said it was because the vaccines can prevent severe illness. The new vaccines, poised to replace the original shots, are not backed by any clinical trial data yet.
Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said that the only reason the vaccines were placed on the schedule was so they could be covered by the Vaccines for Children program.
“It was the only way that our uninsured children would be able to have access to the vaccines,” Walensky said during a congressional hearing on Feb. 8. “That was the reason to put it on the schedule.”

The announcement comes amid a collapse in demand for Covid-19 vaccines.
According to analyst estimates, Pfizer, Moderna, Gilead Sciences, AstraZeneca and Merck could suffer a drop in sales of nearly two-thirds, Reuters reports.
“We remain skeptical that COVID revenues will grow in 2024 and beyond,” said JPMorgan analyst Chris Schott in a recent research note, adding that vaccination rates could drop even further than the significant decline already seen in booster shots last year.
Moderna also expects 2023 revenue to drop sharply.
The company’s only product – its messenger RNA COVID vaccine – pulled in around $18.4 billion in 2022. Analysts expect that to drop to around $7 billion in 2023. The company is due to report earnings later this month.
Oppenheimer & Co analyst Hartaj Singh said investors are “frustrated Moderna hasn’t used their firepower more effectively to prepare for revenues and earnings going down in 2023 or 2024.” -Reuters

“The Trials Should Have Been Halted”: Rate Of ‘Serious Adverse Events’ Closely Tracks Spike In Post-Vax Disabilities
Over the past 18 months, skeptics of mRNA Covid-19 vaccines and those pointing out high rates of adverse reactions have been subject to ostracism, deplatforming, and flawed ‘fact checks‘ to shut down opinions and analysis which conflicted with official narratives.
Now, the data has begun to speak for itself, thanks to people like former Blackrock portfolio manager Ed Dowd, who has devoted the last several years to deep-dive research and analysis of pandemic-related data (in fact, he’s written an excellent book on the topic). Dowd, along with partners Carlos Alegria and Yuri Nunes, launched Phinance Technologies – where, aside from traditional macroeconomic analysis, they have produced comprehensive reports on pandemic-related disabilities and excess deaths using official data.
Their latest analysis reveals that the rate of Serious Adverse Events in the mRNA Covid-19 vaccine clinical trials closely tracks a spike in disabilities reported after the vaccine rollout.
Via Phinance Technologies (emphasis ours),
In part 3 of our US disabilities analysis we observed that the rise in disability rates post 2/2021 correlates closely with the rollout of the vaccination schedule. When looking at changes in disabilities on a wider time frame (since 2008) we observe that the disability rates rose or fell from month to month but tended to be relatively stable over time. However, as shown in part 1, the change in behaviour since early 2021 is clearly an abnormal occurrence with high level of statistical significance. It happens to be highly correlated to the cumulative Covid-19 vaccine rollout, but we cannot state that the correlation is statistically meaningful as it is based on a cumulative plot with obvious autocorrelation.
In this section we provide further evidence that the most likely cause of the rise in disabilities is the Covid-19 vaccines. For that purpose, we model the expected rise in disabilities due to the vaccination rollout in the general population. We do so by using the rates of Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) obtained by the safety analysis of the mRNA vaccine (Pfizer and Moderna) clinical trials, performed in the Vaccine journal paper we reviewed here, and our analysis in part five.
We can observe that the rate of rise in disabilities is higher than the computed rate of rise in SAEs of special interest, which could be explained in several different ways, or by a combination of factors.
- By the definition of an SAEs of special interest being more extreme than the rate of disabilities reported by the individuals surveyed by the BLS i.e. some disabilities reported by the individuals surveyed by the BLS may be caused by adverse events that are not deemed SAEs of special interest, due to the criteria used to define an SAE being overly restrictive.
- The population of the Civilian Labor Force as a whole may be less healthy (and somehow more vulnerable to vaccine-related disabilities) than the vaccine trial populations, either due to the selection criteria for participation in the trial, or ‘self-selection’ bias.
- Under-reporting of SAEs of special interest in the trial populations.
- Other factors causing excess disabilities in the Civilian Labor Force in a concurrent timeframe to the vaccine rollout.
As Dowd further notes via Twitter;
The rate of estimated SAEs appears to be under-reported relative the recorded rise in disabilities (according to the BLS survey) by about 2.6 times. These results were expected as we had already shown in part 3 of our study the high correlation between the rise in the disability rate since 2/21 with the vaccine rollout. We realise that performing the correlation of cumulative time series is misleading & the R2 should not be taken as an indication of establishing a statistically significant relationship as both time series have autocorrelation.”
Bottom line: There were enough safety signals to show that what we are seeing in the BLS data was known during the clinical trials even given their narrow definition of a SAE. The trials should have been halted.This post was originally published at Zero Hedge
