Yet another memo from this administration has been leaked.
The memo was a communication between the HHS and OCR.
It is targeting a Trump-era policy to protect religious liberties.
Earlier today, I suggested that there is some type of shadow activity taking place in this government that needs to be exposed.
Yes, I know it sounds like a conspiracy theory, but yet again, we have proof that this is exactly what is going on with this administration.
Biden is trying to quietly remove freedom protections put in place by Trump.
The latest example is an HHS memo that targets the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).
Trump had put the policy in place to help beef up protections for religious liberties.
Fox News obtained a draft of a memo from the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) to the HHS.
OCR Director Lisa Pino sent the memo to HHS Director Becerra.
It reads, “Prior to the delegation in 2017, no division was singularly responsible for the Department’s compliance with RFRA or the First Amendment.
“That model recognized that all components of HHS had a responsibility for compliance and that OGC [Office of General Counsel] was a central partner in providing key legal advice on RFRA and defending the Department when RFRA claims were raised.
“Rescinding the delegation to OCR does not lessen the commitment of the Department to compliance, but ensures that it is not misused by any one agency to enact a broad, proactive agenda.”
Roger Severino, who led OCR in the Trump administration, slammed Becerra after the memo surfaced, stating, “HHS centralized authority over religious freedom claims because the laws weren’t being enforced and because that’s how we enforce every other civil right.
“Without dedicated staff responsible for investigating religious freedom complaints, HHS will return to trampling people’s rights as before — just ask the Little Sisters of the Poor.”
Severino, who is now a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, continued, “Because Becerra was twice found to have violated conscience protection laws by OCR, he has no business deciding its religious freedom authorities given his massive conflict of interest.
“Becerra told Congress that he values religious freedom and that nothing will change with OCR concerning enforcement.
“His actions since then prove that he lied and this move would put an exclamation point on his anti-religious hostility.”
You know what they say… it’s not a conspiracy if it’s true.
