The Mexican Navy has reported a major fentanyl seizure at the West Coast Mexican port of Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacán. Lázaro Cárdenas is about 380 miles west of Mexico City, and about 200 miles northeast of Acapulco, along the coast.
By major, they mean 23,368 kilograms, over 51,000 pounds, almost 26 tons. Yeah, I think that qualifies as major.
Three milligrams of fentanyl will kill an average size adult male. Fentanyl is so deadly that it only takes one-tenth as much to kill a user as does heroin: 3 milligrams vs. 10 milligrams of heroin.
So if we do a little math, 23,368 kilograms of fentanyl = 23,368,000,000 milligrams (23 billion-368 million milligrams). That equals 7,789,333,333 (7 billion-789 million-333 thousand-333) deadly 3 mg overdoses of fentanyl. That’s enough to kill the entire population on the planet.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has seized enough fentanyl over the past year to kill an estimated 794 million Americans.
As an example of how dangerous this drug is, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, just over the past weekend, a police officer was pursuing a suspect who tossed a package out the window of his car. The officer stopped to gather what he thought was evidence. After he picked up the package, he had trouble breathing and other symptoms of an overdose of … fentanyl.
It is believed the shipment was destined for the Sinaloa Cartel which is, of course, still in operation after the arrest and conviction of El Chapo, who ran the cartel for almost 20 years.
Breitbart reports: According to government authorities, investigators found the cargo inside a container of a Danish-flagged vessel with a cargo manifest indicating that the contents consisted of Calcium Chloride.
Why did the Mexican authorities decide to test the calcium chloride (CaC|2)? Just speculating here, but in 2017, Mexico exported 13 times as much CaC|2 as they imported. Carrying coals to Newcastle?
The Danish-flagged ship was coming from China, a known source of fentanyl production. And it is a sure bet that the Sinaloa Cartel wasn’t going to move that shipment south into Central America. That deadly poison was all destined to be delivered across our southern border for distribution throughout the United States.
This is just one more horrific example of why the United States needs absolute, total border security. A war is being waged against America, our country, and our culture. It isn’t a war with missiles and bombers and armies sweeping across our frontier. But it is a war that uses our porous borders to flood our communities with illegal aliens, and with deadly drugs.
It wouldn’t surprise me to find out that our intelligence agencies alerted the Mexican authorities who, shall we say, passed the test and interdicted this drug load.
Thanks to the Mexican government for seizing this poison.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. [Winston Churchill.]
