Think you live too far from the Mexican border to be hurt by the chaos there?
Article by Betsy McCaughey from our premium news partners at The Epoch Times.
Bloomfield is a picturesque village in central Connecticut, 3,500 miles from the Mexican border. But illegal drugs flowing across that border nearly killed a 16-year-old student at Bloomfield High School two weeks ago. He tried marijuana, not knowing it was laced with fentanyl. Police rushed to the school nurse’s office and administered two doses of Narcan just in time to save him.
Responding to the surge in teen overdoses, Connecticut’s Gov. Ned Lamont is asking, “How did this happen? How is there more fentanyl on the streets than ever before?” Look south, Governor.
With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
Hidalgo County, Texas, Sheriff J.E. Guerra, who operates on the frontlines of the border war, explained that he’s not worried drugs will impact his community. “The drugs go further north,” he said.
Drug thugs cross the border disguised as needy migrants or even unaccompanied minors. Once across, they’re provided bus and airplane tickets to destinations across the United States. In some cases, charities—largely taxpayer-funded—pay for the tickets, and hand the border crossers cellphones and other items as they start their journeys north.
Other times, “Biden Air” flies migrants stealthily at night into places like Westchester County airport, close to the Connecticut border.
Once far north of the border, drug thugs are invading middle schools and high schools and killing our teens.
Last week’s hearing before the Senate Finance Committee documented the soaring death rates among teens, especially black teens. A 13-year-old student at the Sports and Medical Science Academy in Hartford, Connecticut, collapsed in the school gymnasium last month and died from a fentanyl overdose. Police found 40 bags of fentanyl in two classrooms, and another 100 bags in the boy’s bedroom.
Bags of fentanyl in a public school classroom should evoke the same alarm as a school shooting or a bomb scare because that quantity could kill as many innocent students.
Not all young overdose victims are addicts. Fentanyl is 80 to 100 times stronger than morphine. When teens experiment with fentanyl-laced drugs, they’re not just risking addiction; they’re risking death on the first try. No second chance. Fentanyl kills so fast that by the time first responders arrive, more often than not, there’s no pulse.
Many teen victims “probably don’t have a substance use disorder, they’re experimenting, making a bad choice, and they end up dead,” explains Roneet Lev, an emergency room physician in San Diego.
A new federal report warns that even when the drug influx is stopped, the death toll will continue to soar.
Congress’s response is a charade. Congress has directed Customs and Border Protection to adopt new technology and scan 100 percent of cars and trucks passing through the legal ports of entry. Right now, about 5 percent are scanned. True, more scanning will result in more seizures. But the cartels can shift more of their operation to crossing between the ports illegally. Democrats are resisting all efforts to close illegal entry.
Most migrants wading across the Rio Grande with backpacks and shopping bags are carrying necessities—but some are trafficking. A backpack sniffed out by canines hid five pounds of fentanyl stuffed in breakfast burritos. Estimated street value: $60,000.
As long as Democrats insist on open borders, killer drugs and drug dealers will pour in.

What is the Biden administration’s latest response? Allocating $30 million for drug kits to make drug consumption more sanitary. That’s crazy.
Parents need to warn their kids that experimenting with drugs even once can kill them—and they need to insist schools drill down on that message.
Connecticut, for example, requires drug abuse education in each grade, but there is little emphasis compared with woke issues such as racial equity and gender fluidity. Instead of asking kids about their preferred pronoun, tell them to just say no to drugs.
The current woke culture in schools is an engraved invitation for drug dealers ready to literally make a killing off our kids.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
