Going to state once again that I’m well aware what Russia Today is, what Gatestone is, what Al Jazeera is – this does not disqualify them. Sometimes we’ll even stoop to the Guardian if they would be the only ones with an angle we’d need the lowdown on. Horses for courses, chaps and chapesses. No apologies.
Thus, this is worth a read from Gordon Chang at Gatestone:
- For one thing, the Communist Party, through its cells, controls every business of any consequence…. Beijing tightly controls the banking system and knows of money transfers instantaneously…. Furthermore, fentanyl cannot leave the country undetected, as virtually all shipped items are examined before departing Chinese soil.
- Chinese gangs are large and far-flung. In China’s near-totalitarian state, it is not possible for them to operate without the Communist Party’s knowledge. And if the Party somehow does not know of a particular gang, it is because it has decided not to.
- China’s postal service has to know that it has become, among other things, the world’s busiest drug mule.
- The regime has adopted the doctrine of “Unrestricted Warfare,” explained in a 1999 book of the same name by Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui. The thesis of the authors, both Chinese Air Force colonels, is that China should not be bound by any rules or agreements in its attempt to take down the United States…. The regime, consequently, is using criminality as an instrument of state policy…. China’s officials will stop at nothing to increase the power of their regime.
“I’m not alleging any kind of conspiracy, I suppose, but just the plain facts of it: fentanyl and Covid both came from China, China’s our main rival, they’re benefitting from the deaths of many thousands of Americans,” Tucker Carlson noted on his October 16 show.
China’s regime has been pushing fentanyl into the United States for years. 13% of packages from China contain some form of contraband, including fentanyl and other deadly substances.
Fatal drug overdoses in the U.S. last year hit a record 70,980, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Of those deaths, 36,500, were from synthetic opioids such as fentanyl. Cocaine and methamphetamine fatalities were also up, largely because these substances were mixed with fentanyl.
It is, as Vanda Felbab-Brown of the Brookings Institution states in a July paper, “the deadliest drug epidemic in U.S. history.”
From Penseivat earlier today:
Mixed in with the news of total lockdown and thousands of people becoming unemployed, is the news that China’s GDP has risen by over 3% and the wealthy are becoming wealthier (only have a Kindle so unable to attach source information).
While everyone seems to be blaming everyone else, no one appears to blame the imbecile in the Chinese government who thought it would be a good idea to infect the world. No protests outside Chinese embassies or Consulates anywhere.
