Outrageous: House Democrats Block Fentanyl Trafficking Bill
A health crisis has found its way to America with a growing number of fentanyl crossing the border, increasing deadly drug overdoses. On Wednesday, House Democrats actually blocked H.R. 6184, the Halt All Lethal Trafficking of Fentanyl Act.
The resolution was introduced by Republican Representatives Morgan Griffith of Virginia and Kat Cammack of Florida. House Rules Republicans’ Twitter account tweeted about the abhorrent move:
“FLOOR ALERT: @HouseDemocrats blocked @HouseGOP requests to consider @RepMGriffith’s bill to keep fentanyl a controlled substance, a critical tool to stop illegal trafficking of fentanyl across Biden’s open border & keep these deadly substances from claiming more American lives.”
The severity of the crisis has been demonstrated by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) which announced they seized a record-breaking 11,201 pound of fentanyl in 2021. In just the first three months of fiscal year 2022, they have already seized more than 2,700 pounds – almost more than the amount seized during the entire 2019 year at 2,804 pounds.
“We recently learned from the CDC that between May 2020 and April 2021 more than a hundred thousand overdose deaths occurred in the United States – an increase of nearly 30 percent over the previous year…Because fentanyl has a proven medical use, it is considered a Schedule II narcotic, but elicit derivations of fentanyl, also called fentanyl-analogs or fentanyl-related substances, do not tend to demonstrate medical value,” said Griffith.
The bill would have permanently placed fentanyl-related substances into Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act, making it illegal to sell the molecularly-altered fentanyl substance manufactured by criminals, instead of its normal classification as a Schedule II under the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are “defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.” The emergency class-wide scheduling order for fentanyl-related substances is set to expire on February 18.
Fentanyl and related drugs, trafficked through the U.S.-Mexico border, are currently the leading cause of drug overdose deaths in the United States.
Mexican drug cartels, using substances imported from China, have largely switched over to producing and trafficking fentanyl because it is not limited to a growing season and it is easier to smuggle through the ports of entry and between the ports of entry along the southern border.
Griffith’s bill would have granted researchers the ability to conduct studies on these substances.

LISTEN: Sara Carter on ‘Sean Hannity radio show’: ‘border towns are literally controlled by the drug traffickers’
Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity’s radio show to discuss, as Hannity states, being ‘sick and tired of getting lied to.’ The Biden White House and administration ‘flat out lie’ about the border being ‘secure’ and even Moore misleading, that it’s ‘closed.’ “It’s a lie” says Hannity. “We have never been this insecure” at the border says Hannity.
They even go so far as to say fentanyl smuggling at the border is at ‘historic lows.’ Sara Carter has spent extensive time at the border and states “there is no security at the border” and that the lies from the Biden admiiniistratioon with regard to the border is “so overt.”
Carter explains that her own experience with being at the border has given her knowledge that the Gulf Cartel and its offshoot groups have operators inside cities that actually have check points. Carter explains to listeners how important it is to understand how this works: “border towns are literally controlled by the drug traffickers.”

Apparently the Democratic members of the House are in bed with the trafficking of fentanyl or more precisely with China. It is clear that Pelosi, at least, is in bed with China. She and her husband have financial interests with China. China makes money off of the fentanyl, Pelosi makes money off of China. That simple.

Under the Trump Administration Americans were put on the front burner and America was winnings. Under the biden administration China is put on the front burner and China wins, while American lives are put at risk and America loses.
Democrats have become evil Demon-crats, showing their true hatred of America by creating draconian laws and mandates that appear to follow the wishes of China. China owns America in more ways than one. And we are progressively being turned into China West. Sad! Very Sad!

An exact quote from the article: –
Fentanyl and related drugs, trafficked through the U.S.-Mexico border, are currently the leading cause of drug overdose deaths in the United States.” Since it has been a well-documented FACT for several years now, why is our unbelievably corrupt/inept federal government still concentrating its inarguably failed “War on Drugs,” e.g., War on Innocent Americans” on innocent chronic pain patients and their equally innocent pain physicians?
While the corrupt and equally inept CDC, DEA, and DOJ continue to fraudulently prosecute innocent chronic pain patients merely for being sick. Including fraudulently prosecuting their pain physicians merely for trying to help their patients survive yet another day dealing with agonizing intractable pain. Tons of illicit narcotics are simply walked across our nonexistent borders every single day.
With the direct help from the aforementioned corrupt government agencies (the CDC, DEA, and DOJ) America has finally reached the sickening milestone of over 100,000 drug overdoses (from illicit drugs, not prescribed medications) in a single year.
How many more Americans need to prematurely die from overdoses from illicit narcotics walked across our nonexistent borders before our corrupt/inept government finally targets the well-known culprits, China and the Mexican Cartels?
To any other nation, the killing of 100,000 of its citizens by any foreign nation would constitute irrevocable grounds for a Declaration of War.

Of course, they blocked it. The Cartels pay the Democrat Party to keep the border open and allow them to bring in a certain amount of drugs each month. Why do you think Biden wants the Border open? Hunter needs his drugs.
