Fentanyl is destroying lives and cities. From Michael Snyder at themostimportantnews.com:
If you live near a major U.S. city, you don’t have to go to a movie theater to see a horror show. Instead, just find out where fentanyl-laced heroin is being sold and go hang out with the drug addicts for a few hours. If you survive the encounter, it will be an experience that you will never forget. In city after city, hopelessly addicted men and women wander the streets of our core urban areas like zombies. Unfortunately, many of them won’t last very long because it is exceptionally easy to die from a fentanyl overdose. As you will see below, drug overdose deaths in the U.S. were up 30 percent last year, and fentanyl was the main reason.
Earlier today I came across a video of the streets of Philadelphia that really struck a chord with me emotionally.
Philadelphia played such a critical role in the American Revolution, and it was once such a beautiful city.
But as this video clearly shows, it has now become a complete and utter hellhole.
How can city officials just stand aside and do nothing as this goes on day after day?
Down on Kensington Avenue, you can buy a bag of fentanyl-laced heroin for as little as five dollars…
The Kensington section of Philadelphia, where anyone can buy a lethal dose of fentanyl-laced heroin for $5 a bag, has been known locally as the ‘ground zero’ of America’s opioid epidemic, Philadelphia Magazine reported.
It is not uncommon for locals who pass by the area to notice men lying motionless on the sidewalk.
Syringes and needles are also frequently seen out and used in plain sight.
Those screaming about Trump violating their civil liberties by sending in federal officials to cities should take a look at what icon Abraham Lincoln did to civil liberties. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.com:
A white liberal Democrat District Attorney in Philadelphia named Larry Krasner says he will arrest the federal agents sent to Philadelphia by President Trump to protect the life, limb, and property of citizens that Krasner refuses to protect. According to the white liberal Democrat Krasner, looting and property damage are “peaceful protests.” A number of other state and local Democrat officials and, of course, the presstitute American media, have taken the same position. In Portland, Oregon, for example, it is “totalitarian” for President Trump to use federal agents to protect the United States Court building from being burned down by “peaceful protesters.”
Democrats have defined a defense of life and property against violent looters as an “attack on our deepest constitutional principles.” In other words the Democrats’ definition of the right to protest includes looting and property damage, which they say are constitutionally protected rights.
A former Democrat Solicitor General, Neal Katyal, maintains, falsely, that the President of the United States cannot send federal agents to protect federal property in a state without approval of Congress. Katyal calls the federal agents “thugs” and accuses Trump of leading a fascist “rebellion against our deepest constitutional principles.”
A U.S. District Judge Michael H. Simon issued a restraining order to prevent federal police from evicting journalists from areas they close as they contain riots. The dumbshit judge has no law to cite that permits him to prohibit police from controlling riots.
White liberal Democrat Oregon attorney general Ellen Rosenbaum brought a lawsuit against federal police for interfering with Oregon’s “sovereign right” to protect “people within its own borders from kidnap and false arrest.” It is laughable that we now see modern-era Democrats, advocates since President Franklin D. Roosevelt of centralized power in Washington, appealing to the long dead 10th Amendment of state’s rights.
