While fentanyl continues to kill Americans in record numbers, the Biden Administration is not addressing the issue with resources and scale to counter this epidemic. This is by design but why?
To frame this issue and put it into perspective, in 2022 more Americans died from fentanyl than the Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined. According to the CDC between February 2021 – February 2022 over 108,000 Americans died of drug overdoses with 70% being attributed to fentanyl. That is ~75,600 American deaths due to Fentanyl. The crisis is growing year over year. 2022 is worse with estimates of over 100,000 deaths being attributed to fentanyl alone. Where is the outrage?
The DEA recently announced that in 2022 they seized over 379 million doses of fentanyl, enough to kill the entire population of the United States, plus an additional 40 million doses to spare. This is only what was caught by the DEA. This is likely only a fraction of fentanyl that has come into the United States from China and Mexico.
Fentanyl is a synthetic drug that is cheap to produce. A single sugar size sweetener envelope is enough fentanyl powder to supply a single user for a year. Many other drugs and pills are being laced with fentanyl that are killing innocents that do not even know they are taking fentanyl. Thousand of parents have suffered the tragedy of their teenagers dying of fentanyl laced drugs. But yet the Biden Administration has not nationalized this epidemic. Why?
Ultimately, there are two reasons why Biden is silent. First, the Biden Administrations policy of Open Border with Mexico would receive the necessary scrutiny it deserves. Biden can’t afford to have his Open Borders policy linked to the Fentanyl crisis. Secondly, Biden would be forced to confront China and its illicit Pharma- eutical industry that is directly and indirectly killing Americans.
Considering the Open Borders policy, the net assessment or “gain” is acceptable to Joe Biden and his Administration. The Biden Administration finds it acceptable to allow fentanyl to flow freely into the US through cartel networks killing over 100,000 Americans annually for the net gain of 4.8 million illegal aliens entering the US since he took office in January 2021. Biden and Democrats get their future voters suppressing the epidemic and Americans suffer through a fentanyl crisis.
Regarding China, Biden and his son Hunter have profited mightily from communist China. While we await hearings on the “Laptop From Hell” that was suppressed by Twitter, the informed public is knowledgeable about the payoffs to the Big Guy, Mr. 10%. The Biden Center at Penn University itself was largely financed by donations from China. China clearly has leverage on Joe Biden and his family. To confront Xi JingPing and the Chinese communists, risks disclosures that could destroy the Biden presidency. Joe Biden’s tepid treatment of everything CCP China leads with this fact.
So, America and her children and families are at risk everyday of a growing fentanyl epidemic. While Open Borders and being weak on China CCP serves Joe Biden and his Administrations interests, just know that your president has engineered this crisis and he is unwilling to stop it. Joe Biden owns the fentanyl epidemic and he is OK with that.
