Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Tuesday painted a bleak picture of the United States’ current efforts and ability to halt the influx of drugs from foreign countries.
Pompeo appeared before a Senate committee focused on ways to stop the flow of illegal drugs into this country.
“I know many people that have been impacted by this set of issues,” Pompeo said. In a 10-hour period last month, the former Kansas congressman said, seven Kansans died from drug overdoses.
An estimated 70,000 Americans died of overdose deaths in 2017.
As overdose deaths rise, Pompeo says the U.S. struggles to halt drug trafficking
Item One: Imagine if there were 70,000 homicides by firearms happening in the US. We would be talking Martial Law, 24 hours a day bombardment in the media against guns and gun owners. And if 70% of those guns were coming from Mexico? There would be M1 Abrams cruising around the remains of Mexico City, the Marines ransacking every bottle of tequila and Honduras with a huge refugee problem. How many of you heard about Pompeo going to the Senate yesterday? How much pomp and circumstance was given in the media?
70,000 OD deaths a year translates to 191 overdose deaths a day. Las Vegas shooting is the deadliest active shooter event with 58 deaths and we were bombarded with hate for months with it. We have three times the Las Vegas amount of deaths by overdose every day and the Media barely stops their coffee break to mention it.
Item Two: Why is Pompeo appear to be laughing? This is a very serious issue, right? Wait, the article states he was addressing a Senate Committee and that does not look like the Senate chambers. Are we trying to convey (once more) that Republicans are cold hearted, uncaring individuals that want to see people dead?

Yep. Granma North is stealth editorializing via photo selection again.
Making the Ebil Republican look like he’s laughing at the thought of those Oppressed People getting kilt so he can make that Ebil money.
“Why is Pompeo appear to be laughing?”
Because it’s from an unrelated event and the video is a semi-bio unrelated to this issue. But you already knew that. 😉
The truth will set you free. Therefore, no truth fo you, comrade!
