  • 270,000 overdose deaths catapult fentanyl as major voter topic in presidential race 'Our country is being poisoned'

    03/24/2024 8:08:35 AM PDT · by rktman · 32 replies ^ | 3/23/2024 | Tyler Durden
    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...
  • Fentanyl: The horrendous killer of our time

    Anyone who takes even a cursory look at the news – regardless the source – has to be aware of fentanyl – the latest of the killer drugs assaulting our society. It wasn't too long ago that virtually no one had ever heard of it. Now, it seems to be everywhere, and from what we are told, it is a killer of staggering proportions. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is said to be 50 times more potent than heroin. While the drug is found in all states, California is particularly hard hit, and the source, it appears, is movement...
  • Mass Drug Overdose Shows Dangerous Fentanyl Is Spreading Throughout The Country, Police Chief Says

    01/14/2019 11:43:32 AM PST · by rktman · 54 replies ^ | 1/14/2019 | Evie Fordham
    A mass drug overdose in Chico, California, Saturday attributed to the opioid fentanyl underscored reports that the dangerous substance drove 2017 statistics showing Americans were more likely to die of drug overdoses than car crashes. One person has died and 12 people were in the hospital, some in serious condition, after overdosing on substances likely including the extremely strong synthetic opioid, Chico police said according to NBC News. Fentanyl was concentrated in eastern states when it first came to the attention of law enforcement and public health authorities, but now western states are also seeing its effects. “We were waiting,...

    Former green jobs czar Van Jones, during a roundtable discussion over the rollout of Obamacare on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopolous,” said President Barack Obama’s detractors have “Obama Derangement Syndrome.” “It’s silly season. Literally, they have this sort of Obama Derangement Syndrome where Obama is this absent, weak, ineffectual dictator and tyrant who’s destroying America,” Jones said. …

    I’d say if you live in the United States of America and you vote for George Bush, you’ve lost your mind. — John Edwards When does the legitimate “I oppose Obama” descend into the illegitimate “I hate Obama”? It is popular now to suggest that conservatives in general and congressional Republicans in particular suffer from an obsession characterized by an uncontrolled antipathy for Barack Obama — personal and visceral — that warps their entire political outlook. No doubt some do experience the same obsessions that infected the Left in their furor at George W. Bush. One can find unhinged posters...

    The caption on the above photo reads: President Obama and former President George W. Bush greet family members of the deceased. Bush read a letter from President Abraham Lincoln (who) wrote to a widow who lost sons in the Civil War: Mary Altaffer/The Associated Press (hat tip Boq) The picture says it all. When President Bush spoke at the official ceremonies of the tenth anniversary of the 911 attacks, he was met with applause and warmth from the families. When Obama spoke, there was silence (just as with Mayor Bloomberg). The animus was palpable. UPDATE: Wait, there's more to turn...

    What did she say about our flag? Prior to Obama running for President, Michelle Obama was an open Pro-Marxist and stated that she did not support the American Flag, our Constitution or America. her past and even current ties into the SEIU, ACORN and the Socialist Party of America are very well documented. We should ask why the major media have refused to cover such disrespect by the First Lady.

Watch the video until the folding of the flag is almost finished. At that point read Michelle’s big lips as she leans over to Obama and says “ALL THIS FOR A FLAG” and then shakes her head side to side in disapproval while Obama nods his approval of her statement.

    Operation Desert Storm lasted just over six weeks from first strike to cease-fire. But 20 years later, the decision to send more than 600,000 American troops to free a small, oil-rich, Muslim country that few Americans knew about has had a lasting legacy. For Kuwait, it simply means liberation. On Saturday, tens of thousands of people, from children to heads of state, lined a stretch of highway outside of Kuwait City for a two-hour military parade of nations from the coalition forces that in 1991 repelled Saddam Hussein’s invading army. Tanks, troops, armored vehicles, helicopters and barrel-rolling fighters jets streaming...

    We owe Ralph Nader and Cynthia McKinney an apology. They were right about Barack Obama. They were right about the corporate state. They had the courage of their convictions and they stood fast despite wholesale defections and ridicule by liberals and progressives. Obama lies as cravenly, if not as crudely, as George W. Bush. He promised us that the transfer of $12.8 trillion in taxpayer money to Wall Street would open up credit and lending to the average consumer. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), however, admitted last week that banks have reduced lending at the sharpest pace since 1942....

    A Phoenix-area pastor has started to draw protesters to his congregation after he delivered a sermon titled, "Why I Hate Barack Obama," and told his parishioners that he prays for President Obama's death. Pastor Steven Anderson stood by his sermon in an interview with MyFOXPhoenix, which reports that the pastor continues to encourage his parishioners to join him in praying for the president's death. "I hope that God strikes Barack Obama with brain cancer so he can die like Ted Kennedy and I hope it happens today," he told MyFOXPhoenix on Sunday. He called his message "spiritual warfare" and said...

    Will President Obama "seize power overnight" in a move to consolidate White House control of the U.S. government? That's the fear of Fox News anchor Glenn Beck who discussed the issue at length today with another broadcasting powerhouse, radio's Rush Limbaugh. "I fear this government, this administration has so much framework already prepared, that they will seize power overnight before anybody even gives it a second thought," Beck said. His comment came as he was analyzing the changing nature of the media since Obama's election, citing the administration's close ties with the NBC network, owned by corporate giant General Electric:...
  • Obama and Hitler Compared

    08/09/2009 12:03:11 PM PDT · by morgc · 143 replies · 3,740+ views ^ | 8/7/09 |
    Democrats manufactured the story that protestors at town hall meetings were carrying Nazi flags. Obama policies seem to be more closely aligned with the policies of Nazism, so a comparison of the two is necessary. Among the key elements of Nazism were Racism, Eugenics, leader principle, Government control of the industry, and of course moral relativism. Those are also the principles of Obama's plan for a "better America" . The shared connection of racism speaks for itself. Both megalomaniacs, Hitler and Obama, are racists. Hitler, (who possibly was Jewish) hated Jews. Obama who clearly is partially white expressed his...

    I just read the most ridiculous article posted on the Huffington Post; the author, Danny Schechter asks the absurd question, “Could Obama Be Overthrown”. Then let me ask the question, “Who is talking about overthrowing Obama? According to Schechter, everyone is. Sure there has been strong opposition to the President’s policies and yes even the crazy birthers are getting more than their fair share of coverage, but nobody with any credibility is advocating an Obama overthrow. Danny Schechter seems to be a little paranoid on the subject. From Huffpo: With Democrats fussing among themselves, with Obamacrats forced to rely on...

    Here’s Mike Castle, a Republican congressman from Delaware, trying to deal with the birther nonsense at a town hall meeting back on June 30. It really gets a little spooky when the woman hijacks the meeting with an impromptu demand for the Pledge of Allegiance. It’s hard to imagine a more vivid example of how easily false patriotism can trump reason and common sense. Apparently, CNN’s Lou Dobbs — always on the lookout these days for a fringe issue to ride — is also jumping on the bandwagon.

    One hundred seventy soldiers may be on the verge of refusing to serve—because their president might not be a natural-born citizen. Welcome to the world of the Birthers, right-wing conspiracy theorists whose anti-Obama movement is spreading to Congress. Last week, a U.S. Army major named Stefan Frederick Cook made news when he refused deployment to Afghanistan on the grounds that President Barack Obama might not be a natural-born citizen and therefore is constitutionally ineligible to give orders as commander in chief. Now Cook’s lawyer says she has 170 more soldiers willing to file similar protests against the president. Welcome to...
