Dems Say $5 Billion On Border Wall Is “Too Expensive” Yet Spend $600 BILLION PER YEAR On Drug Abuse Problems In America…

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what’s going on here. Drugs are BIG money and D.C. politicians have been feeding from the drug trough for a very long time, both legal and other. So, when President Trump talks of building a wall to better secure the southern border where much of those illegal drugs are coming from, politicians start to get nervous. So nervous in fact, that a nation which spends upwards of $600 BILLION annually on substance abuse, claims $5 billion for a wall is just “too expensive.”

Via The American Thinker:

President Trump has made it clear with his two recent addresses on the crisis on the border and subsequent government shutdown that the crisis is about stopping illegal drugs from entering the country. These drugs are something that all Americans are impacted by regardless of their proximity to the southern border. The death toll of drug overdoses in the past ten years is equal to the population of Boston, Massachusetts, and substance abuse costs United States taxpayers upwards of $600 billion a year.

Much of that is spent on Democratic pet projects aimed at tackling this problem. Even if the president and his supporters also see another benefit of the wall, stemming the flow of illegal immigration, Democrats should still be supporting any proposal that provides an avenue to ending America’s drug crisis.

Democrats already support other means meant to deal with the growing opioid crisis by offering government-funded “free” needles and drug injection sites, “free” Narcan and overdose-related health care costs, and “free” rehabilitation and “free” methadone programs for recovering addicts.

There are approximately 185 Needle Exchange Programs operating in the United States. The ACLU estimates that the average city spends $160,000 of taxpayer money a year on each NEP, which amounts to almost $30 million a year. San Francisco, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s own district, has begun to open the country’s first “safe injection site,” where drug-users can mainline their drug of choice in a “safe, government-funded space” and where addicts won’t have to face fears of arrest.

According to the ONDCP, between 9.5 billion and 13.5 billion taxpayer dollars are spent on drug treatment and rehabs each year.
Taxpayers are also paying for Narcan, a drug distributed by paramedics in the event of an opioid overdose, which costs approximately $70 per dose. That does not cover the ambulance ride itself. Middletown, Ohio city councilman Dan Picard estimates that each ambulance run for an overdose costs the city $1,140.
One year of methadone costs $4,700 per patient, which brings the known costs of substance abuse to $600 billion annually and doesn’t measure the price communities face in crime, disease, local prevention programs, and tragic loss of life.

The opposition to a secure border makes no LOGICAL sense if one is to believe our elected officials intend to do what’s best for the country.

It makes perfect sense, though, if a more secure southern border minimizes what currently is a $600 billion dollar cash cow. That’s a whole lot of payola going around the halls of Congress, the kind of money they have little interest in seeing go away. Which means that if you don’t support President’s Trump’s push for improved border security, you also don’t support a safer America. No, you are actually supporting the perpetually trough-feeding hungry pigs of Washington D.C.

Ever wonder how it is a politician comes to D.C. often in debt only to be declared a multi-millionaire a few years later? It’s all laid out in the information above. 

BUILD THE WALL AND CRIME WILL FALL.


 

Obama Was Dealing Drugs With Terrorists And The Media Says NOTHING…

It’s sickening beyond belief. A sitting president purposely facilitates an international drug ring run by anti-American terrorists in order to help secure nuclear capabilities for the #1 state sponsor of anti-American terrorism on the planet – Iran. It’s stories like these that make you understand the purpose of an oral drug test. Unless prescribed by a doctor for medical needs, the use of drugs is not worth the risk- when it comes to the law and your health. To play an active role in the war against drugs yourself, simply visit this website.

In a more sane world, the story would be getting 24/7 wall-to-wall coverage. Not here. Not now. Barack Obama was and remains the pet of the globalist corporatists and so they are working hard to protect him from the kind of blowback he most certainly deserves. Some in the media are calling foul – but not nearly enough.

Here is one rare example from the The New York Post:

A deafening media silence on the Obama-Hezbollah scandal

Politico published a jaw-dropping, meticulously sourced investigative piece this week detailing how the Obama administration had secretly undermined US law enforcement agency efforts to shut down an international drug-trafficking ring run by the terror group Hezbollah. The effort was part of a wider push by the administration to placate Iran and ensure the signing of the nuclear deal.

Now swap out “Trump” for “Obama” and “Russia” for “Iran” and imagine the eruption these revelations would generate. Because, by any conceivable journalistic standard, this scandal should’ve triggered widespread coverage and been plastered on front pages across the country. By any historic standard, the scandal should elicit outrage regarding the corrosion of governing norms from pundits and editorial boards.

Yet, as it turns out, there’s an exceptionally good chance most of your neighbors and colleagues haven’t heard anything about it.
Days after the news broke, in fact, neither NBC News, ABC News nor CBS News — whose shows can boast a collective 20 million viewers — had been able to find the time to relay the story to its sizeable audiences. Other than Fox News, cable news largely ignored the revelations as well.
Most major newspapers, which have been sanctimoniously patting themselves on the back for the past year, couldn’t shoehorn into their pages a story about potential collusion between the former president and a terror-supporting state.

Perhaps if President Trump had tweeted about the story, outlets would’ve squeezed something in.

Even when outlets did decide to cover the story, they typically framed it as a he-said/she-said. “Politico Reporter Says Obama Administration ‘Derailed’ Hezbollah Investigation,” reads the NPR headline. Did Josh Meyer of Politico say something about Obama or did he publish a 14,000-word, diligently sourced, document-heavy investigative piece? If you get your news from NPR, you’d never know.

Fact is, the Drug Enforcement Agency began its classified investigation (called Project Cassandra) into Hezbollah in 2008. It found that the Iranian proxy had laundered nearly a half a billion dollars and was moving cocaine to the United States. According to Politico, the Obama administration not only threw obstructions in front of investigators but failed to prosecute major players in the enterprise.

What makes the media blackout particularly shameful is that the story isn’t a partisan hit job. It was written by a well-regarded journalist at a major outlet. The story has two on-the-record sources — which is more than we can say for the vast majority of so-called scoops about the Russian “collusion” investigation. One of these sources, David Asher, was an illicit finance expert at the Pentagon who was tapped to run the investigation. There’s no plausible reason to ignore him or the story.

Then again, ignoring or diminishing Obama’s shady dealings with Iran isn’t new. Obama administration officials bragged to the New York Times Magazine last year that they’d created an echo chamber, relying on the ignorance, inexperience and partisan dispositions of reporters to convey their lies to the American people.

We saw this when the Obama administration claimed it was releasing 14 Iranian civilians on humanitarian grounds, when in fact it was releasing spies and weapons dealers. Or when Team Obama claimed diplomacy had won US hostages’ release, when it fact it had sent hundreds of millions of euros, Swiss francs and other currencies on wooden pallets in unmarked planes to Iran. The press was uninterested in those stories, too.

Establishment media personalities will often point out that none of us would have any knowledge of these incidents if not for their reporting. This is true. There are intrepid journalists at media institutions who aren’t swayed by partisan considerations.

The preponderance of editors, journalists, pundits and bookers, on the other hand, still coddle Democrats. They may do it on purpose or unconsciously, but it’s destroying their credibility. Because as David Burge once noted, “Journalism is about covering important stories. With a pillow, until they stop moving.”

LIKE & SHARE this story. Educate others. Remember, millions of Americans are out there right now buying the hoax being spewed by the globalist media that the Obama presidency was “scandal free” despite mountains of evidence that points to it being among the most scandal-infested administrations in American history. And now, even when a scandal of such proportions as a sitting president effectively helping a terrorist organization run drugs into this country, the media remains silent.

Wonder why Mr. Obama would be so motivated to do so? Why would he be so determined to do the bidding of Iran? Hundreds of millions of dollars were being made by Hezbollah selling those drugs to Americans. Wonder what Obama’s cut of those proceeds was? If you think that scenario is far-fetched you’re not paying attention. Re-read the above story with open eyes.

MOST. CORRUPT. PRESIDENT. EVER.
