China's Chemical Warfare
Drug Enforcement Administration chief Anne Milgram made a shocking statement this week, which has not gotten nearly the coverage it deserves. She said:
"What we know is that China is providing chemicals to Mexico, to the criminal drug networks that are then mass-producing these fake prescription pills. . . But there's no Xanax, no Oxy, no Percocet in them. They're fentanyl. . .
"Right now, this is the leading cause of death. Overdoses are the leading cause of death for men between the age of 18 and 45. There are more overdose deaths than car accidents and [shootings]."
Drug overdoses, driven by fentanyl, are killing more than 100,000 Americans a year.
But let's be absolutely clear about what Milgram said – communist China is sending the chemicals to the cartels to make fentanyl. This is not the usual process where drug dealers want to hook people so they are regular customers. Fentanyl is deadly.
For example, California officials announced yesterday that they arrested two drug dealers with 20 pounds of fentanyl. That's enough to kill 4.7 million people!
Just imagine if terrorists or another enemy of the United States ever found a way to weaponize fentanyl. Or have they?
Are the communist Chinese working with drug cartels, as the DEA chief suggests, to deliberately kill as many Americans as possible? I think it's a question that deserves serious examination.
Let me repeat: Border security is national security. The drug cartels should immediately be put on the list of terrorist organizations, and the border must be secured.
While we are pointing to possible Russian violations of international law in Ukraine, there are violations of international law killing Americans every day right here in the United States!
Communist China is complicit in them. The drug cartels are complicit in them. And the Biden Administration is complicit in the deaths of our sons and daughters!
While we are understandably focused on the horrors in Ukraine, we are ignoring the horrors taking place daily in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, San Antonio, Columbus, Cincinnati, Manchester, Boston, etc., where our children are dying at the hands of the communist Chinese, the drug cartels and the open borders lobby!
Again, if the president refuses to enforce our immigration laws and secure the border, he should be impeached!
Disney's New Hire
Desperate to dig itself out from underneath all the negative publicity it has earned in recent weeks, Disney announced that it has hired Kristina Schake as the company's new spokesperson.
Unfortunately, this is not a step in the right direction. Schake's biography clearly suggests that Disney is simply doubling down on its rush to the far left.
Her most recent gig involved leading the PR efforts for the Biden Administration's COVID vaccination campaign. Prior to that, she co-founded a group that sought to overturn Proposition 8, California's voter-approved defense of marriage law, and she served as deputy communications director for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign.
So, she has plenty of experience lying to the public. What could possibly go wrong?!
Well, here's something else that's going horribly wrong at Disney. A top Disney executive recently left no doubt that the company is all in on left's gender insanity.
Karey Burke, president of Disney Entertainment, recently said this:
"We were targeting a young, I think, more open-minded [audience] — and now we know, as my son texted me this morning: 'Gen Z is 30 to 40 percent queerer than the other generations, mom, so Disney better get with it.'"
Once the symbol of wholesome, family-friendly entertainment, Disney has jumped head first into the cultural cesspool.
Meanwhile, congressional conservatives are pushing back against the corporate media giant. As you might expect, Disney has a lot of legislative interests, not the least of which are copyrights and trademarks. But congressional conservatives are in no mood to lift a finger to help Disney's woke executives.
Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), a stalwart conservative, is blasting the company for "kowtowing" to communist China, and is organizing opposition among House Republicans. In a letter to Disney CEO Bob Chapek, Banks writes:
"It's unfortunate that Disney, once an American success story, has allied with a hostile foreign regime [communist China] and domestic ideologues who seek to tear our country apart."
Disney has even lost the support of Florida Senator Marco Rubio. In a statement, Rubio blasted the company's left-wing executives, saying:
"Disney is in uncharted waters because of the radical activism of its corporate leadership. It's not clear how this whole thing plays for them, but they have made themselves the face of efforts to indoctrinate 5-year-old children on gender identity."
If he were alive today, Walt Disney would be horrified. He was a very traditional man. In fact, when he was alive, men could not work in the Disney parks if they had facial hair. Today, Snow White might have a beard!
- Attorneys general in Arizona, Louisiana and Missouri are suing to stop the Biden Administration from ending enforcement of Title 42, which allows for immediate deportations of illegal aliens during a public health emergency. Without Title 42, it is estimated that more than 500,000 illegal aliens will cross the southern border every month.
