C.I.A. Manufactures Drugs
On March 1, 2017, several websites reported that there was a fire in C.I.A. headquarters in Langley, Virginia. The Langley fire department responded to put out the fire, and they discovered drugs at the scene of the fire. The discovery shows that the C.I.A. has been involved in manufacturing some of the drugs that have been sold illegally on the street. It is common for drugs addicts to rob and steal, in order to raise money to buy drugs, so obviously, this discovery has major implications on crime rates across the U.S.A. No word from Trump, regarding this issue. Obviously Trump feels content to sit there and do nothing while the drug crisis drags America down to hell.
I think there is not much of a chance that this is a false story. If it were false, I am sure the Langley, Virginia fire department would have issued a statement that said the story was false. So far, there has been no denial from the Langley fire department. The story said that there was an explosion at about 11:30 at night, and the explosion was so strong that it was heard for miles around. Apparently, the C.I.A. had a drug lab, and some of the chemicals in their drug lab exploded, and started a fire. When fire fighters searched the building, they found large amounts of chemicals, and these are the type of chemicals that are used in manufacturing fentanyl and methamphetamine. They found two tons of pure pseudoephedrine, large quantities of iodine crystals, acetone, battery acid, drain cleaner, lantern fuel and antifreeze.
A spokesman for the Fairfax County Sheriff's Office, Jared Matters, said they also found large quantities of methamphetamine and fentanyl in the building. That should be enough to impeach Trump. Isn't Trump sworn to uphold the laws of the United States of America? Here, we have a huge violation of law, and Trump has not appointed a special prosecutor, he has not called for a special investigation, he has not fired the head of the C.I.A., he has not done anything! Are you aware of how many people have died, because of overdoses of fentanyl, all across the country, recently? Fentanyl is said be be fifty times stronger than heroin, and some drug users who use fentanyl are under the impression that they are using heroin. Two milligrams of fentanyl (an amount about as big as a grain of salt) is enough to cause a fatal overdose. A police officer in Ohio suffered a drug overdose because he accidentally touched fentanyl, when he pulled someone over for a traffic stop. He had gotten something that looked like a white powder on his shirt, so he brushed it off with his hand, and he absorbed enough of it through his hand, to cause a drug overdose.
If you wanted to read all the stores about fentanyl overdoses, it would take a long time to do it, there are hundreds of stories of fentanyl overdoses on the internet. In the state of Maryland, the rate of fentanyl-related deaths increased 284 percent in the past year, in the state of Michigan, there has been 10 times as many overdose deaths, that is a 911 percent increase since the year 1999. On March 17, 2017, it was reported that the city of Columbus, Ohio has one fatal overdose per day. There had been 55 fatal drug overdoses in Columbus and the surrounding area in January and February of 2017, according to the local coroner. The number of drug products that contained fentanyl that had been seized by law enforcement officers increased 426 percent between 2013 and 2014.
The cost to our society is staggering. It costs over 8 billion dollars a year to prosecute and incarcerate drug users and drug dealers. Prosecution and incarceration is only part of the cost. You also have to consider how much money the drug addicts steal, in various robberies, and burglaries, in their never-ending quest to support their drug habit. The U.S. Department of Justice estimated that in 2008, the cost of illegal drug use in the U.S.A. amounted to more than 174 billion dollars each year. The Bureau of Justice Statistics estimated that 70 percent of prisoners in state prisons and 57 percent of prisoners in federal prisons were regular drug users before they were incarcerated. The National Institute on Drug Abuse estimated that illegal drug use costs society 181 billion dollars a year. The fact that the C.I.A. has been manufacturing fentanyl is particularly noteworthy in regards to Trump's foreign policy. There have already been several stories planted on websites that claim that the fentanyl is coming from China. One story, published by a Fox News affiliate based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, claimed that the raw materials for fentanyl are made in China, then smuggled into the USA, then smuggled into Mexico, where the ingredients are processed, then, smuggled back into the USA, for sale on the black market. Does that sound plausible? What drug smuggler is going to smuggle contraband across a border, TWICE, risking arrest two times? So, the C.I.A. manufactures fentanyl in Langley, Virginia, and Trump's right-wing propaganda media plants news stories that say the drug comes from China, not Langley, and that's the basis for Trump's foreign policy! It would have a negative effect on America's foreign policy if illegal drugs were manufactured by the CIA, while the problem was being blamed on China and other foreign countries. Is this preparation for the next major war? We manufacture drugs in Langley, Virginia, then we blame it on China, and then what? After that do we bomb China to get rid of the drug problem? Why should Trump and his drug pushers have any bombs to play with, anyway? It is my sincere wish that all of Trump's supporters will pay for this outrage.
