China Launders Cartel Money to Keep U.S. Fentanyl Crisis Going

Chinese nationals are laundering vast amounts of money for Mexican drug cartels who push fentanyl into the United States to harm Americans as much as possible, former Drug Enforcement Administration agent Michael Brown told the Washington Times on June 25.

  • Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid about 50 times more potent than heroin and 100 times more potent than morphine.
  • It produces a rapturous high in the bloodstream, making it extremely addictive and astonishingly high-risk in terms of overdoses.
  • Even trace amounts are enough to kill an adult.
  • Around 200 Americans die each day from fentanyl.

Chinese malice: The evidence shows China is involved in every step of this stunningly destructive scourge on America. China sells cartels the precursor chemicals the drugs are made from, helps them cook these into a toxic cocktail, sells pill presses on the cheap, and even assists with smuggling and covert communications.

As Brown’s report confirms, the Chinese also help the cartels launder money so they can keep expanding their drug empires and keep killing as many Americans as possible.

The Chinese basically are stirring the pot to keep America addicted … keep them divided. It’s part of a larger strategy, I believe, on the part of China to weaken American ethics, morality and their ability to push back.
—Michael Brown

As America increasingly succumbs to societal rot, numerous crippling addictions and political dysfunction, China is doing all it can to hasten its fall. Bible prophecy makes clear that these efforts will culminate in China working with other global powers to besiege America.
