Fentanyl: Communist China’s Killing Machine

Updated: May 17

Destabilizing America, body and soul

It is hard to come to grips with the impact of the fentanyl epidemic on the American people. But the expressed goal of Chinese communists — to destroy the United States and overthrow its democratic system — is easy to see when studying the synthetic opioid scourge.

The US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) says, “Fentanyl is the single deadliest drug threat our nation has ever encountered. Fentanyl is everywhere. From large metropolitan areas to rural America, no community is safe from this poison.” 

The numbers show fentanyl has become a leading cause of the historic decline in US life expectancy. It is now the biggest killer of Americans between the ages of 18 and 49, and deaths related to the drug among children and babies are on the rise.

'More than 150 Americans die each day from overdoses of the synthetic opioid — the equivalent of a packed Boeing 737 crashing every twenty-four hours. An estimated 150,000 people in the US died from the drug in 2022 alone.'

Each year, America loses more souls to fentanyl than it has lost in all its wars combined since World War II, from Korea to Afghanistan. Studies indicate that over 40% of American adults are mourning the death of someone who has died from an overdose.

The blitz barely gives Americans a chance to understand what hit them — or where it is coming from — let alone to regroup and carry on.

CCP subsidizing fentanyl exports to US

Lawmakers in Washington have been investigating the source of the onslaught for months, and recently issued a report of their findings.

In a 64-page document, members of the Select Committee on the CCP detail the role of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in the demise of so many Americans.

Select Committee Chair Mike Gallagher (R-WI) said upon the release of the report last month that the CCP was encouraging the flow of Illegal drugs into the United States for the purpose of weakening and undermining the nation as a whole.

"Through its actions, as our report has revealed, the CCP has told us that it wants more fentanyl entering our country," Gallagher continued. "It wants the chaos and devastation that has resulted from this epidemic. And yes, that means more dead Americans."

According to the Committee, the investigation included researching People's Republic of China (PRC) websites, analyzing government documents and "acquiring over 37,000 unique data points of PRC companies selling narcotics online through web scraping and data analytics."

The Committee also engaged in undercover communications with PRC drug trafficking companies and consulted with experts in the public and private sectors.

The report's findings are stunning; they establish that the PRC government, under the control of the CCP:      

  • Directly subsidizes the manufacturing and export of illicit fentanyl materials and other synthetic narcotics through tax rebates. 

  • Gave monetary grants and awards to companies openly trafficking illicit fentanyl materials and other synthetic narcotics. 

  • Holds ownership interest in several PRC companies tied to drug trafficking. 

  • Fails to prosecute fentanyl and precursor (chemicals required to produce a drug) manufacturers. 

  • Allows the open sale of fentanyl precursors and other illicit materials on the extensively monitored and controlled PRC internet.

  • Censors content about domestic drug sales, but leaves export-focused narcotics content untouched.

  • Strategically and economically benefits from the fentanyl crisis. 

PRC officials publicly acknowledge that the trafficking of fentanyl and its precursors, as well as other illicit narcotics materials, is against Chinese law.

Nevertheless, the Committee found thousands of PRC companies openly selling such products on the Chinese internet. It questions how the "most heavily surveilled country-wide network in the world" fails to "pursue flagrant violations of its own laws." 

Connecting the dots

Broadly speaking, fentanyl flows from China to Mexico, through the porous US border, to cities and towns across the United States.

Much of the deadly substance is transported from production centers in China across the Pacific in massive container ships bound for Mexico's western ports.

Mexican cartels buy the substances in bulk and often ship them via regular mail to labs, which are typically located in the northern part of the country near the border with the United States. There, cartel workers press the powder into consumable pills and tablets.

The pills are carried by illegal immigrants ("newcomers," as Biden calls them) across the US border, hidden in secret compartments in vehicles and backpacks. In areas where the border is wide open, the mules do not have to hide their stash.

Once inside the US, the opioids are packaged into smaller quantities and transported by cartels toward urban markets, or moved to stash houses along the border.

'During the course of its investigation, the Select Committee also learned that America is so vulnerable to drug smuggling that fentanyl is often trafficked directly into the United States from China, bypassing our neighbor to the south.'

In such cases, Mexican cartels often move the drug into American cities and towns in collaboration with CCP agents.

Then, the addiction and dying begins.


The Committee made a number of suggestions to stave off the flow of fentanyl and save American lives. These include executing a "coordinated strategy to target the weak points in the global illicit fentanyl supply chain," "providing law enforcement officials with the statutory authorities, tools, and resources they need to execute their responsibilities" and "closing regulatory and enforcement gaps exploited by PRC money launderers and fentanyl traffickers."

Notably, the bipartisan Committee failed to name what many see as the most obvious solution to the crisis — a protected border.

Therefore, some gauge its strategy, however well-intentioned, to be ineffective compared to the ingenuity of the CCP, coupled with the complicity of its enablers in the US government. New reports are confirming that Chinese illegals — up to 4,000 each month — are crossing the border, with many successfully establishing illegal drug businesses inside our country.


One of the PRC's generals and chief strategists believes that drug warfare, which causes disasters in other countries while making huge profits at home, is an effective tactic in asymmetric warfare. America is living — and dying — proof of his strategy.

Dr. Billy Graham pointed out that the word for sorcery or witchcraft in the Bible is pharmakeia. This was good information to know at a time when psychiatrists were pushing dope and their fake claims to be ministers of health on children through so-called Child Guidance Centers. I knew at age ten that the drug pushers were doctors claiming to know what is wrong with your brain and a few years later they were known to be child molesters, but I never would have guessed that the Pope of the Catholic Church would become their pawn. Even Franklin Graham and President Trump fell for their ploys. Anyone gullible and ignorant enough can be persuaded by the allure of money…


Historically, China has always known how to control and/or destroy a population through the use of opium. Today, they are using a combination of TicToc and fentanyl. Further, they are buying-up American food suppiers, and have saturated the American product market. Try to buy anything that hasn't been manufactured in a Chinese sweat shop.

Then there's a little place called Woohan....
