Police in Auburn, Maine arrested a couple last Friday after their 9-month-old baby overdosed on the highly-potent synthetic drug fentanyl, NEW CENTER Maine reports. It only takes the equivalent of four grains of salt of fentanyl to kill the average American adult.

Auburn’s fire department was soon called to the couple’s home last week where the child was found unresponsive, according to the news channel. The baby received Narcan, an antidote to the drug, at the hospital, and is said to be recovering, the report noted.

Police found traces of fentanyl in the home after carrying out a search warrant. Matthew Mcleod, 30, and Valene St. Onge, 29, were arrested and their baby was taken from their custody. The two face charges of furnishing schedule W drugs. St. Onge was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child, according to the report.

In 2018, Sara A. Carter produced the documentary “Not in Vein” to showcase the devastation the trafficking of narcotics into this country wreaks on our nation.

In the midst of the epidemic of the novel coronavirus, there exists a worsening epidemic of drug addiction to opioids. The Washington Post released a report Wednesday that detailed the overwhelming spike in overdose deaths since the start of the COVID-19 lockdowns.

“We’ve literally run out of wheeled carts to put them on.”

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was voted off the House Foreign Affairs Committee Thursday. The action was expected, as Republican members of Congress had criticized Omar’s antisemetic and anti-American rhetoric.

After intense debating on the House floor, the resolution passed with a 218-211 vote. Democrats attempted to pull the race card, accusing Republican House members of racism for removing Omar from the committee.

Omar also accused House Republicans of racism, saying, “I am Muslim, I am an immigrant, and interestingly, from Africa…Is anyone surprised that I am being targeted? Is anyone surprised that I am somehow deemed unworthy to speak about American foreign policy, or that they see me as a powerful voice that needs to be silenced?”

“There is this idea that you are a suspect if you are an immigrant or if you are from certain parts of the world or certain skin tone or a muslim.” Omar said during the heated debate. A fiery Alexandria Ocasia Cortez also chimed in shouting, “This is an attack on women of color!”

Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, from New York, said she had personally witnessed Omar spew anti-American rhetoric. Malliotakis said, “I have been in that committee room where, the representative, equates Israel and the United States to Hamas and the Taliban. Absolutely unacceptable for a member of that committee.”

A four-page resolution was written for the justification of removing Omar from the house Foreign Affairs Committee. The resolution states that in 2019, Omar suggested that Jewish people were buying U.S. political support when she posted on Twitter, “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby.”

Omar also commented on the September 11th attacks saying, “some people did something.” This type of comment is unacceptable for any representative who is sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, lawmakers said.

In the resolution it states that members of this committee should all be held to an “equal standard of conduct due to the international sensitivities and national security concerns under the jurisdiction of this committee.”
