While it’s unsettling enough that a Chinese surveillance balloon could traverse the entirety of the United States before ultimately being shot down, it is equally unsettling that border security remains abysmal.
Especially amid Chinese-originated fentanyl sailing across the border on a routine basis, which in turn has significantly augmented the narcotics crisis across the United States.
Border security, after all, is not only crucial in the long run for long-term election security (i.e., reducing the number of illegal migrants who can vote), but it is also vitally important for preventing increasingly deadly drugs from crossing into the United States.
Sadly, drug and alcohol abuse and addiction afflicts Americans of all backgrounds, which is perhaps why (at last) a surprising degree of bipartisanship has emerged with regards to limiting the trafficking of fentanyl.
Democrat Congressman David Trone, clearly concerned by the rise in overdoses across the United States, made it abundantly clear which nation bears ultimate responsibility for the drug’s prevalence.
“99 percent of the fentanyl is coming from precursor drugs from China, and then it’s manufactured by two cartels, the Jalisco and Sinaloa Cartels, and they’re the ones that are bringing it across the border,” Trone detailed.
Which is precisely why one wonders why exactly the Biden regime has not bothered to take substantive action on the border, unless undoing all of the effective policies Trump implemented may be considered substantive.
Even more problematically, the continued refusal of Biden to even call out the Chinese for their fentanyl machinations, even when other Democrats are clearly doing so, speaks volumes about just how much the “Big Guy” may indeed be bought.
Indeed, the rampant rise of drugs sailing over the border, courtesy of lax national security policies, has become increasingly problematic, if not outright tragic, for countless American families, who don’t seem to factor into the forefront of many of the White House’s decision.
Other representatives, however, have taken notice of the crisis.
Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes, for instance, whose state serves as an epicenter for illegal crossings, has noted that a huge swathe of Arizonans have struggled tremendously amid the drugs crisis.
“There are few families in our state and across our country that haven’t been touched in some way by the scourge of the opioid epidemic and fentanyl crisis,” Mayes stoically remarked.
Unfortunately, that trend is set to increase, despite bipartisan efforts to fight its growth.
According to a report from Fox News, “in 2022, the DEA seized more than double the amount of fentanyl-laced, fake prescription pills that it seized in 2021.”
Even more humorously, the White House is presently blustering about allegedly “serious consequences” for China if it provides “lethal aid” to Russia, though the regime seems curiously out of touch with the lethal drugs sailing over the border, also courtesy of China.
Ned Price, who serves as U.S. State Department spokesman, grudgingly acknowledged that China is already providing “economic support” and “diplomatic support,” which in turn made the alleged threats towards China all the more asinine.
“We have been clear with the PRC about the fact that consequences would befall them if they were to provide lethal assistance, but we think it’s most effective if we leave that ambiguous and we continue to warn consistently of those consequences,” Price boomed.
Right. More like leave the consequences “ambiguous” as Beijing Biden can be counted on to do absolutely nothing constructive, as far as China is concerned.
Furthermore, it is pretty clear that Putin’s ongoing invasion is largely aided and abetted by Chinese economic support in the first place, which leads many to wonder why the Biden regime hasn’t bothered to implement sanctions of substance on the Asian superpower.
In fact, Biden’s continued fixation on Europe, at the expense of pretty much everything else, is precisely what Beijing wants, per Dr. Sumantra Maitra, the senior editor of The American Conservative.
“[China wants] the U.S. to be bogged down in Europe … Contrary to the conventional wisdom that if the U.S. isn’t involved in Ukraine, then rival powers will see it as weakness, the Chinese do a very different calculation. To them, as long as the U.S. is bleeding in Europe by producing and supplying to the point of inflation and insolvency, the U.S. cannot pivot to Asia,” Maitra mused.
Highly likely similar points were conveyed to Hunter Biden or other corrupt conduits with a direct line to Emperor Biden, and even more likely such points were raised over the course of extremely shady art deals.
