    Last year 70,000 Americans lost their lives to Communist China’s genocidal fentanyl offensive. To put that into perspective, we have already lost more innocent Americans to China’s unconventional warfare than we lost soldiers to Hitler in the entire course of World War II. Similarly, if one were to consider the 1,000,000 American deaths caused by COVID19, a biological weapon made in China’s military lab in Wuhan, one would begin to get an idea of the scope of China’s unconventional warfare efforts to bring America to its knees.If one were to add the complicity of the Biden White House in insuring...
  • CIA Wants Congress to Expand Top-Secret Eavesdropping Program To ‘Fight Against Fentanyl Crisis’

    04/08/2024 4:56:37 AM PDT · by Tench_Coxe · 36 replies
    The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), along with other members of the U.S. intelligence community, are pushing for Congress to expand Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 in order to fight the ongoing fentanyl crisis.According to the Brennan Center of Justice, Section 702, “Authorizes the government to collect the communications of non-Americans located abroad without a warrant from a court. While this surveillance is supposed to target foreigners, it inevitably sweeps in Americans’ private phone calls, emails, and text messages too.” (snip) However, CIA officials believe in its current form, Section 702 limits the intelligence community from...

    It is very easy to find fentanyl in New York. The drug that in 2022 alone killed nearly 110,000 Americans is readily available right here on the streets of this city. Over the past the year, I’ve been investigating the spread of this lethal drug across this country. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that has a potency many hundreds of times that of morphine. Largely made in China, its strength means it is easy to transport huge quantities of the drug. It floods into this country, mainly through Mexico. One recent evening in New York, I headed over to OnPoint,...

    A Long Island couple was indicted on manslaughter charges after their toddler allegedly overdosed on their drug stash – as the local prosecutor called for new laws to prevent similar tragedies. Wilkens Adonis and Daryllee Leibrock, both 38, had already faced a litany of drug and weapons charges after the Jan. 3 death of 14-month-old Joseph Adonis, who was killed by a lethal cocktail of cocaine, fentanyl and heroin. But on Monday, Suffolk County District Attorney Ray Tierney announced a superseding indictment that formally charged the Holbrook couple in the child’s death.

    FENTANYL KILLS. That’s what the billboard says. That’s all the billboard says—FENTANYL in a cold, light blue, KILLS in stark white against an all-black background. Below is a woman on a gurney, treated with the same dead-blue tones as the script above her. She’s covered to her armpits in a sheet, arms at her sides, awaiting an autopsy. Anyone who has seen a cop drama in the past 30 years knows the image. When an opioid user overdoses, their lips turn a cold, light blue. That was the color of my lips when I lay slumped in a pile outside...
  • 270,000 overdose deaths catapult fentanyl as major voter topic in presidential race 'Our country is being poisoned'

    In a recent interview on Fox News, former President Donald Trump warned, "Our country is being poisoned from within by the drugs and by all of the other crime that's taking place." According to the latest provisional data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, between November 2019 and October 2023, there have been a shocking 270,000 overdose deaths from synthetic opioids - or about 80,000 overdose deaths per year - across the nation. Under the Biden administration's first term, Americans have been increasingly traumatized by the tsunami of overdose deaths as disastrous open southern border policies flood the...

    FRESNO, CA (KMJ) When Governor Gavin Newsom suddenly pulled the plug on Monday’s annual State of the State speech with no explanation, insiders and analysts were quick to assume the reason may be due to the extremely close vote on Proposition 1.More than two weeks after the primary election, the race is still too close to call. As of today, Prop 1, Newsom’s $6.4 billion plan to help California’s homeless and addicts leads by 17,000 votes with 200,000 yet to be counted. The tight race reportedly has Newsom’s group scrambling to find more “yes” votes to push it over the...

    Police tracking drugs in our area are sounding the alarm with cocaine and meth making a comeback. Metro Detroit law enforcement is warning of an uptick in meth and cocaine use across the area. "The danger of this is significant to everybody," said Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard. "Basically the cost of cocaine, the cost of meth, all of that has gone down to about a third of what it was two years ago." Bouchard says it is a supply and demand issue, combined with the already troubling amounts of fentanyl coming into the states. He says it is a...

    BELLINGHAM, Wash. — A Mexican drug trafficker faces the potential of decades in federal prison after the Drug Enforcement Agency arrested him for peddling fentanyl from a homeless encampment in Bellingham. Prosecutors say Rigoberto Vasquez-Martinez, 32, had a "fortified compound" inside the encampment, which included armed security around the structure where he stayed. The city of Bellingham is in the process of trying to clear the encampment behind the Walmart on Stuart Road after years of shootings, explosions, overdoses, and drug crimes. According to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Seattle, Vasquez-Martinez was a significant supplier of drugs in Bellingham and...

    China already is waging war with the US, but not with guns — with poison. In his new book, “Blood Money,” Peter Schweizer explains how Communist China mass produces and distributes fentanyl, a chemical 30 to 50 times as powerful as heroin, to poison Americans. As this excerpt shows, the Chinese government actively uses fentanyl as a weapon to destabilize our society. “Blood Money” discusses how China’s production of fentanyl can lead to the downfall of many Americans. While we debate domestic politics to address the fentanyl crisis, the reality is that Beijing is deeply involved at every stage of...

    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...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who has been strikingly absent from the national fentanyl conversation, has “financial connections to individuals involved with criminal networks in Southern California, many of whom are tied to money laundering and the drug trade,” according to Peter Schweizer’s new book Blood Money: Why the Powerful Turn a Blind Eye While China Kills Americans. In Blood Money, Schweizer highlights Schiff’s astonishingly empty record regarding the fentanyl crisis before suggesting that the congressman could potentially risk “undue attention to his own financial” ties if he were to address the issue meaningfully.

    The teenager who arrived at Jose de Jesus Lopez's drug rehab clinic in the industrial Mexican city of Monterrey in December had unusual symptoms. The 17-year-old's family had taken the boy to hospital a few days earlier when he'd had trouble breathing and then passed out after supposedly consuming cocaine, the director said. Now he was sweaty and nauseous. He'd been vomiting and couldn't sleep. "Something doesn't add up," thought Lopez, who is also the head of an addiction center network in Nuevo Leon state, where Monterrey is located.

    As the fentanyl crisis continues across the country, a new task force in Los Angeles is holding dealers accountable —not for selling drugs, but for murder. As Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Lieutenant Bobby Dean explains, fentanyl provides an "extremely potent high, it is dirt cheap and it is incredibly easy to get." He also warned, "It's a hundred times more powerful than morphine. And it will kill you in an instant if you get a bad batch." Dean leads the task force that investigates fentanyl deaths in Los Angeles County with the aim of bringing charges against dealers. "They...
