With fentanyl, China uses
Opium War tactics against us

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 5/23/2018 3:55:26 PM

A new report out from Bloomberg (first spotted on Axios Vitals) signals that China has more ways to defeat us than merely through its military buildup: Federal prosecutors in Mississippi charged [Chinese national] Yan, 41, in September with leading an empire built on the manufacture and sale of drugs related to fentanyl, one of the world´s deadliest and most profitable narcotics. So strong that it´s been studied as a chemical weapon, the drug has saturated American streets with breathtaking speed: It kills more people than any other opioid, including prescription pills and heroin, because it´s so easy to overdose.

Comments:
Chicoms are out to get us.

I don’t trust Axios. They - the guys who founded Politico and then moved on - are not our friends.

The U.S. Treasury Department imposed sanctions Friday on a suspected Chinese drug kingpin and four associates who are accused of flooding the U.S. with fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid blamed for almost of third of the nation’s fatal overdoses.

Jian Zhang was indicted in October as part of a joint U.S.-Chinese investigation into international drug trafficking and remains at large.

But designating Jian a top trafficker under the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act allows law enforcement agencies to go after his financial interests around the world.

Some believe it is only a few miscreants in China. Some - especially liberal news outlets - appear to believe it is China.

this poison is mixed with heroin to boost the ´kick´. Kids are dying left and right from this. I can´t believe with the cooperation we´re having on trade that we couldn´t make them crack down on the wholesalers from China.
These dealers should get the death penalty.

Chinese are our enemies, never lose sight of that.

OTOH, "just say no" works 100% of the time. I have no fentanyl problem because I have never done any illegal drugs.

Life is still all about choices. Choose "no".

President Donald Trump is celebrating 500 days in office with a smile on his face and a spring in his step. If there was any doubt, watch his recent impromptu drop-in interview on the White House lawn with Steve Doocy from Fox and Friends last week. The Mueller investigation is coming up empty. Stormy Daniels has turned out to be more of a drizzle than a storm. Trump is checking off accomplishments, from the economy to North Korea, both areas where we were told Trump had no expertise or experience, that if the smart set in the Obama administration couldn´t solve

As fabulous as Sarah Sanders is, watching her daily press briefing is beyond frustrating; it is infuriating. The people she faces each day in that room are rude, antagonistic, angry, and generally vile. They are perpetually on the attack. They never listen to what she says. On Monday, Kirstjen Nielsen, also an amazing woman, faced them with similar results. These not-reporters apparently did not hear a word she said. That was evident from the questions they shouted at her the minute she offered to answer a few. These press jackals are ignorant of facts. They fall for the lamest narratives pushed

Sunday´s election of a hardcore conservative in Colombia has left the media elites and their pundits befuddled. Some are calling Ivan Duque, the 41-year-old new conservative president-elect a "populist" as if to suggest that both President Trump and the late unlamented Venezuelan strongman, Hugo Chávez, are all dreadful peas in the same pod. Others are speculating that Colombia elected another Emmanuel Macron, (Snip) The best story I saw comes from a local, on-the-ground source. Here´s Colombia Report´s headline: "Iconic Medellin slum votes Duque to avoid ´another Venezuela.´"

Michelle Obama joined her fellow former first lady Laura Bush Monday in criticizing the hard-line Trump administration immigration policy that has led to families being separated at the border. Bush, the wife of former President George W. Bush, penned a tweet over the weekend in which she echoed the widespread condemnation of the new directive from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “I live in a border state,” Bush said. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Quoting that tweet, Obama wrote that “sometimes truth transcends

CUCUTA, Colombia - E xhausted but relieved, Yariani Flores lay next to her healthy newborn son, along with four other Venezuelan women who just gave birth in a hospital in Colombia’s border city of Cucuta. Thousands of Venezuelan women have done the same over the past few years, as the health system in their home country has crumbled. They crossed the border, driven by fear that they or their babies could die. Early in her pregnancy, Flores sought a pre-natal checkup at a municipal hospital in Venezuela’s frontier state of Tachira only to be told that there was little point. “The doctor said,

The Justice Department on Monday announced charges against a former CIA computer engineer for allegedly leaking top-secret information on U.S. government hacking tools to WikiLeaks. In a 13-count superseding indictment, the agency charged Joshua Adam Schulte with illegally gathering classified national defense information and transmitting it to “an organization.” WikiLeaks published the data in March of last year. “Schulte utterly betrayed this nation and downright violated his victims,” FBI official William Sweeney Jr. said in the release. “As an employee of the CIA, Schulte took an oath to protect this country, but he blatantly endangered it by the transmission of

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) on Monday said President Trump should stop his administration’s “heartless” zero-tolerance immigration policy, which has resulted in children being separated from their parents. Bush, who unsuccessfully ran for president in 2016, also said Congress should pass an immigration law that addresses issues raised by both Democrats and Republicans. “Children shouldn’t be used as a negotiating tool. @realDonaldTrump should end this heartless policy and Congress should get an immigration deal done that provides for asylum reform, border security and a path to citizenship for Dreamers,” Bush tweeted.”

On the day after the Republicans kicked our butts in the 2014 midterm elections—enlarging their margin in the House of Representatives and taking control of the Senate for the first time in eight years—I sat at my desk in the West Wing waiting for the bell to toll. At the time, I was the White House senior adviser for communications and strategy, and had been advising Barack Obama on media strategy and message since right before he started running for president back in 2007. I was into my third hour of looking at the devastating exit polls and turnout numbers

KILAUEA volcano in Hawaii is continuing to erupt, with the volcano and surrounding areas experiencing 453 earthquakes alone within the last 24 hours, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS). Within the surrounding Leilani area, 5,914 acres acres of land have now been impacted, while 553 houses have been destroyed. The volcano has produced a large laze plume after an ash eruption on Sunday morning at the Kilauea summit.

Hillary Clinton called the practice of separating immigrant families at the U.S. border a “moral and humanitarian crisis” and criticized her 2016 election opponent for allowing it. “What’s happening to families at the border is horrific,” Clinton said Monday at an event in Manhattan hosted by the Women’s Forum of New York. “Every human being with a sense of compassion and decency should be outraged.” President Donald Trump continued Monday to blame Democrats’ opposition to legislation that would curb legal immigration for his administration’s policy of separating child migrants from their parents at the Mexican border and said he would not allow

You can say this for Mexican soccer fans: they’ve managed to turn one of football’s least dramatic moments into one of its more controversial and offensive. The pattern is familiar. The opponent’s goalkeeper lines up a goalkick and the chant begins: “Ehhhh…” Then Mexican fans’ voices rise in unison until the kick prompts a cry of “p---!” The term is homophobic slang for a male sex worker. And its use by fans at matches from Mexico City to California and now Russia continues to give Fifa and the Mexican federation headaches.

At an awards lunch for the Women’s Forum of New York, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee called out “those who selectively use the Bible” to give grounds for the separations, which were reported by the Department of Justice on Friday. “I went to a lot of years of Sunday school — even taught it from time to time.

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

While the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton´s secret server where she kept official emails out of the view of the authorities until her lawyers could scrub them, for some reason, agents never searched the Blackberries or other email devices belonging to her inner circle at the State Department. Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and his team received a crazy response when they asked FBI agents on the Hillary Clinton email investigation why not. The agents´ primary excuse was to point to "the culture of mishandling classified information at the State Department which made the quantity of potential sources of evidence
