Looks like Attorney General Merrick Garland has finally woken up to the fact that conservative parents are not, in fact, the biggest threat to national security.
Though the AG clearly thought so for an extended period of time, as evidenced by his laughable collusion with militant teachers’ unions against conservative parents, or frankly concerned parents.
And who could blame them, given the militant transgender agenda, which is currently engulfing an innumerable amount of educational resources?
Anyway, perhaps some rather troubling statistics forced the AG’s attention from his previous war against conservative parents, in particular the realization that tens of millions of deadly pills are crossing the border with ease … and that’s just 2023 data to date.
As detailed by Newsmax, from January 2023 to the present day, at least 55 million pills have crossed the border, many of which are undoubtedly connected to rising overdose rates across the nations.
“Violent drug cartels are manufacturing and moving fake pills designed to look exactly like brand name drugs, and instead, they contain deadly fentanyl,” Garland admitted.
Alas, cartels get rich while Americans get sick. The open border way.
“They are fueling this epidemic … The justice department is attacking every aspect of the cartels’ operations,” Garland insisted.
Attacking every aspect … except the lax Biden borer policies that are clearly fueling the crisis in the first place.
It is a real shame that no federal official appears willing to address the consequences of a weak border, opting for public handwringing instead.
DEA Administrator Anne Milgram, for instance, harps on the billions upon billions of dollars reaped by criminal organizations amid the fentanyl epidemic.
“We are facing and confronting a threat that is ever-growing. It has never been more deadly or dangerous … We are talking about billions of dollars that are crossing the globe today that profit from fentanyl,” Milgram declared ominously.
And several of those organizations are based in none other than China, the same nation that apparently has Biden’s home address on file.
According to a report from the Brookings Institute, China has decided to undermine global narcotics efforts by failing to participate in them, illustrating the degree to which it believes it can now defy the United States.
“China, however, sees its counternarcotics enforcement, and more broadly its international law enforcement cooperation, as strategic tools that it can instrumentalize to achieve other objectives. Unlike the U.S. Government, which seeks to delink counternarcotics cooperation with China from the overall bilateral geostrategic relationship, China subordinates its counternarcotics cooperation to its geostrategic relations. As the relationship between the two countries deteriorated, China’s willingness to cooperate with the United States declined …
In August 2022, China officially announced that it suspended all counternarcotics and law enforcement cooperation with the United States,” the report noted.
A rather troubling development, especially as overdose rates in the United States are on the rise.
Combatting the impact of narcotics on American society is an issue that all Americans could get behind, but the Biden regime appears frightfully uninterested in dedicating resources to such a crucial problem.
Instead, it would rather focus hundreds of billions on Ukraine.
While promoting democracy worldwide is a noble goal, it can’t come at the expense of endangering American national security.
