US border officials made the largest methamphetamine drug bust on US soil at the Long Beach port in mid-January. Three shipping containers, intended to be exported to Australia, were filled with speakers stuffed with 3,810 pounds of meth, and also contained 55.9 pounds of cocaine and 11.5 pounds of heroin. Australian officials said the total street value of the haul was $1.29 billion and contained 17 million doses. Authorities arrested two Americans and four Australians, but they have not disclosed whether the drugs were manufactured in America or who supplied them.
The bust is the third major seizure in a matter of weeks by border officials. The other two busts were in Arizona, including the seizure of 254 pounds of fentanyl, the largest ever bust for that drug, on January 31st and 3,500 pounds of marijuana and over 220 pounds of meth near Gila Bend.
Customs and Border Protection announced the seizure of the three containers on Thursday, which were intended to be shipped to Australia before being searched on Jan. 11. The containers were filled with speakers “artfully” stuffed with the drugs.
“There’s no question that the criminal organization behind this scheme has been dealt a significant blow,” Joseph Macias, special agent-in-charge for Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Los Angeles, said in a statement. “Along with our law enforcement partners here and around the world, we continue in a day-to-day battle against the blight of methamphetamine that continues to devastate our communities. Through a collaborative effort — pooling our information, resources and expertise — we are keeping this dangerous contraband from reaching our streets and potentially saving lives.” In addition to the 3,810 pounds of meth, the shipment also contained 55.9 pounds of cocaine and 11.5 pounds of heroin. Australian officials said the total street value of the haul was $1.29 billion.
The bust was the largest amount of methamphetamine ever seized in the United States, according to police.
Authorities said six people have been arrested in the scheme — two Americans and four Australians. The Americans were identified by Australian police as a 52-year-old man and 46-year-old woman living in Woodstock, Victoria.
People will accept any insult to their liberties in order to survive, which is the reason why one crisis after another is scientifically engineered. Confusion and fear is the secret weapon of tyrants. This will continue until a significant segment of the population (perhaps 15%) understands the scam and pushes back.
West railed against a COVID-19 vaccine saying he believes it is the mark of the beast, a symbol of opposition to God noted in the Book of Revelation. He condemned Planned Parenthood and believes it is the tool of white supremacists to do the “Devil’s work.”
No one has done a proper study for a novel, never-seen-before virus, and it will never be attempted because it would destroy the theory that one virus is causing a pandemic. A few people at the top know the truth, but the cult operates on blind faith.
The decision could call into question thousands of state prosecutions for serious crimes. Under federal law, major crimes committed by individuals on Native American land must be tried by the federal government. Hundreds of state prosecutions could become undone, even for heinous crimes.

It is already a crime to file a false police report and this bill could have a chilling effect on calling the police in a real emergency – especially if the crime or threat of crime is committed by someone of a protected minority.
Trump’s broad rollback of Obamacare rules that required employers to provide free birth control to women. But employers are no longer forced to participate in providing cost-free contraceptives to employees. Congressman Jerry Nadler said the regulations upheld by the Court can be reversed by a new President.
Samantha Shader is accused of hurling a Molotov cocktail at an NYPD van full of police during a George Floyd protest, and she claimed a trio of “black” strangers made her do it. Prosecutors say the bottle failed to ignite because she used toilet paper instead of a rag as the fuse. The facts do not support her story.
The State’s Medical Practice Board accused Dr. Jensen of ‘providing reckless advice’ on a news program by comparing COVID-19 to the ordinary flu. [Dr. Jensen is correct, of course, and If this goes to court, there is a good chance he will prove his case. Our guess, therefore, is that it will never go to court.]
The new classification of ‘probable cases’ includes 15 possible ways to be counted as a COVID-19 patient without ever taking a lab test. Anyone who had contact with a COVID-19 patient and has two symptoms can be considered a probable COVID-19 case and could be quarantined for 14 days.
Forest City Police Department officials said that Shaquille Marshon Francis allegedly murdered the girl just three hours after he had been released from jail.

House Bill 2502 that would give the director of the State Department of Health the power to declare a health emergency if authorized by the governor. The governor already has the power to declare a health emergency, and critics of this bill say that it gives too much power to a state official who is not elected.
Rockland County officials issued subpoenas to eight people allegedly infected by the coronavirus to compel them to speak with contact tracers about contracting the COVID-19 disease at a party last month. Patricia Rupert, the county’s health commissioner, said, “Failure to comply will be costly: $2,000 per day.”
The country’s uninformed population may be exploited as the French researcher Jean-Paul Mira proposed, “Shouldn’t we be doing this study in Africa where there are no masks, no treatment, no intensive care, a little bit like we did in certain AIDS studies or with prostitutes?”
Places of worship must therefore discontinue singing and chanting activities and limit indoor attendance to 25% of building capacity or a maximum of 100 attendees, whichever is lower. A choir practice without masks was blamed for an acute outbreak of coronavirus in Washington State in March.

Kris Kobach laid a out plan to immediately stop the deluge of people at the border that includes processing towns along the border containing the hundreds of empty government trailers for temporary housing for immigrants, and a team of immigration judges who can immediately deport migrants on a fleet of planes…
President Trump says the crackdown could be “a game changer” for the United States where tens of thousands of people die from opioid overdoses annually. Pardon our skepticism but the exact words of Chinese officials give the impression they will increase regulations but will not ban the drugs.
The official county autopsy mentioned that Floyd had a concentration of the drug Fentanyl at three times the lethal level. We hesitated to publish this fact and risk being accused of trying to cover up police brutality, which certainly is not the case. We have a long record of reporting on cases of police brutality when warranted.
