    This is the latest evidence that China has said one thing and done another when it comes to its role in the fentanyl crisis. Anew report Tuesday detailing the Chinese Communist Party’s role in the fentanyl crisis plaguing the country details the findings of a House investigation that concluded the Chinese government subsidizes the manufacturing and export of fentanyl materials and refuses to crack down on the illicit market. The report, released by the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party, coincided with a public hearing with former Attorney General Bill Barr, former DEA Chief of Operations Ray Donovan,...

    One of my mentors was a cousin by marriage who was a biophysicist, prominent too - he was terraforming Mars with NASA when he died. He and his wife Jane were founding professors at York University. Jane had travelled by bus to Idi Amin’s Uganda to research her doctorate from the London School of Economics, proceeded to a law degree, and he ended his career as head of the Royal Society. God gave me my terrifying parents, but he also gave me Bob and Jane and I would fall on them periodically, sleep in his basement study, lined with tribal...

    "Takedown" host Chris Hansen - also known for his longtime show "To Catch a Predator," which followed police sting operations targeting pedophiles - said his latest project led him to encounter migrants who were soliciting women for sex and others being solicited themselves. Hansen told Fox News the idea of "migrant crime" is "not a hoax," but becoming a real problem in some quarters where it has led to alleged criminal sex rings, after MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and Jen Psaki mocked the issue being the top concern for voters in Virginia. Maddow joked it does have a "very contested" border...

    Tim Tebow, a former NFL quarterback, spoke before Congress on the subject of human trafficking as well as strategies to stop the rise of child exploitation. On Wednesday, Tebow visited Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., where he proposed legislation, “to enhance the capability to identify and locate the more than 50,000 unidentified children who are being abused, raped and tortured.” “To sum it up, we strive to fight for people who can’t fight for themselves,” Tebow said. The former NFL star emphasized that there needed to be more precautions enacted in order to inhibit the online distribution of child sexual...

    The city of Vancouver was built by serious Christians.... It is now a cesspit of crime, drugs, human trafficking, child sex and money laundering. The city has been taken over by a consortium of cartels, Asian and Mexican, who own through their funding of a proliferation of social justice activist groups, members of the city council, the judiciary, as well as members of the provincial and federal government, particularly those in immigration who rubber stamp the papers of the worst criminals from across the Asian world. They are all here now. The pickings are just too good. You are next...

    SAN ANTONIO – Over the past month, KSAT 12 has been investigating the relationship between the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office and the Wren Collective, a criminal justice reform group based out of Austin. KSAT 12 originally unearthed hundreds of pages of text messages between Gonzales, his staff and the founder of the Wren Collective, Jessica Brand, through a public information request. Now, we’ve obtained more than 400 pages of emails between Brand and Gonzales’ personal email that suggest Brand played a larger role at the DA’s office than Gonzales has admitted. Since our first report on Jan. 30, Gonzales...

    Fentanyl is a “Chinese operation much more than it is a Mexican drug cartel operation,” Peter Schweizer, author of Blood Money: Why the Powerful Turn a Blind Eye While China Kills Americans, said during an appearance on Breitbart News Saturday. Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) and senior contributor at Breitbart News, explained how the Chinese are using fentanyl as a weapon against the United States. “A lot of the people involved in the fentanyl trade actually have senior positions in the CCP [Chinese Communist Party] or they’re advisers to the CCP government, but the links in this...

    The criminals know how to settle election outcomes: They kill the candidates they don’t like. If it’s Thursday morning, then it’s another post about violence in Mexico. Or as a Mexican friend said: “Dios mio todos los dias” or “My God, every day.” Yes, killing is happening too much south of the border, whether you are a journalist or a couple of candidates running for office. This is the story: Two mayoral hopefuls in the Mexican city of Maravatío have been gunned down within hours of each other, as experts warn the June 2 national elections could be the country’s...

    The lawsuit, which a federal appeals court recently ruled can move forward, relies on similar theories about dangerous product design, irresponsible marketing and reckless distribution as in opioid litigation, a law professor writes. legally responsible for the criminal activity of others is precisely the type of lawsuit that the federal immunity shield was designed to block. They argue that merely selling a product that someone later uses in a crime does not amount to a violation of federal law that would deprive a manufacturer of immunity. Additionally, the gun-makers assert that, even if Mexico’s lawsuit were not barred by the...

    @LeadingReport BREAKING: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton says that Joe Biden is “clearly in partnership” with cartels. “It’s so obvious; we saw what worked under Trump. It’s called enforcing the very things he talked about, and literally day one, Joe Biden comes out and says I’m not deporting anybody,” Paxton said. “So all the policies that worked that brought all the numbers down, when you reverse those policies, all the numbers went up. I don’t know why the media can’t figure this out. It’s really obvious.” “And Joe Biden is clearly in partnership, without saying it, without having a written...

    Daily Mail ^ | 2/10/24 | Martha Williams
    Mexican drugs cartels have expanded all the way north and are targeting America's 'last best place' by preying on vulnerable Native American communities in Montana. A recent report showed Montana to be the second most 'addicted' state with 18.2 percent of the state's population using illicit drugs in 2021 - a figure that has only been rising as time goes on. Drug cartels from Mexico are drawn to the state of Montana because of how much money they can squeeze out of residents. Fentanyl pills, for example, can be sold for 20 times the price in Montana than other areas...

    Mexico’s president suggested Thursday that talks with the U.S. government on migration and drug trafficking could suffer after media reports of a U.S. investigation into alleged drug money donations for his 2006 campaign. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador suggested U.S. officials should apologize for what he called baseless allegations, and said it would be hard to sit down and talk about some of the most pressing issues in bilateral relations until that happens. “I don't accept this, what I want is for the U.S. government to take a stand,” López Obrador said at his daily morning press briefing. “If they...

    In May 2011, discussions began secretly in Mexico between a known Los Zetas associate and Quds Force operative Manssor Arbabsiar. The discussion would lead to planning a C-4 detonation at a Washington, D.C. restaurant frequented by Saudi Ambassador Adel al-Jubeir. The Quds Force operative did not know that he was being recorded in a DEA operation. Over the course of a few months, several clandestine meetings in Mexico planned strikes against the Israeli Embassy in Washington, plus and the Saudi and Israeli Embassies in Argentina. New opium trafficking lanes between the Middle East and Mexico were also charted. In July...
