And where is the fentanyl coming from Jeremy? Our southern border. The very border your disaster if chief fails to defend.

@Malcom is my understanding that much of the illicit fentanyl is being manufactured in the PRC & then distributed by the Mexican cartels.

Shouldn't the FAA, DEA, Border Patrol, and U.S. Coast Guard be more actively involved in stemming the flow of these drugs from abroad?

Shouldn’t your president do something to secure our southern border, Amelia? He’s done nothing. But Trump’s plan worked, didn’t it? Trump’s remain in Mexico policy stopped a lot of the crap you see going on at our border today. And last year, there were over 400,000 people who illegally crossed our border and disappeared. Yeah, nice job, Mr. Disaster in Chief.

Democrats are creatures of their own demise. What an absolute mess. Going to vote for Buddy again, Amelia?

@Malcom Hex...President Biden cannot be blamed for every ill occuring in our country.

Until both lunatic fringes (the far left & far right) dissipate, we cannot have a true bipartisanship effort towards moving forward as a country.

BTW...I do not support the likes of Biden, Newsom, Harris et al, nor Trump, Haley, Pence, Pompeo, Cheney, or the current Governor of Florida as potential 2024 POTUS candidates.

We can do better than that.

Though she is not a real doctor (as in MD), Dr. Jill Biden should follow in the footsteps of her predecessor First Lady Nancy Reagan and establish another War on Drugs to educate and our youths and discourage them from using dangerous drugs.

The DEA and Congress should also impose harsher laws for chronic substance abusers and sellers.

Hey Paul,

Biden appointee Assistant Secretary for Health for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Rachel Levine, promised that medically changing kids’ genders will soon be normalized.

You okay with that, Paul? The only lunatic fringe is in the Democrat party, and leading the way is your current incompetent fool that shakes hands with inanimate objects.

I’ll take Trump, DeSantis, or Haley over that clown in the Oval Office . Bottom line: if you’re okay with the current disaster in chief… We’ll… you and Rachel might just have something in common.
