Russia has tons of raw material and is right next door. The US is $21T in the hole and counting, do the math retard.

Soon as Israel get to be the only air-force in the whole region. The only growth industry open is to become a heroin addict. The fake news is already setting that up. Mexico will be the dealers and the US and Canada will be the addicts.


https://sputniknews.com/latam/201907...stern-regions/
MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) – The US Overseas Private Investment Corporation will allocate $800 million for the economic development and jobs creation in the southeast of Mexico, the Latin American country’s Foreign Minister, Marcelo Ebrard, said.


https://sputniknews.com/latam/201907...pium-producer/
In times when opioids are causing more deaths in the world than ever before, Mexico is positioned as one of the world’s largest opium producers, second only to Afghanistan.

The epidemic of death from the use of opioids has ceased being a problem affecting the United States alone. The United Nations World Drug Report 2019 warned that Europe and Africa have also begun to suffer from this.
Although the document states that world opium production in 2018 decreased compared with the historical maximum reached in the previous year, this figure is the second largest in the last decade and amounts to 7,790 tons.
Three countries dominate this oligopoly: Afghanistan, Mexico, and Burma. According to United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) reports for 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 published in 2018, opium poppy cultivation in the Latin American country has steadily increased from 6,900 hectares in 2007 to 30,600 hectares in 2017.
This phenomenon is partly due to Mexico's northern neighbour. "The United States is the world's largest consumer of opioids, and Mexican criminal organisations are positioning themselves as suppliers", Inés Giménez, a researcher of Latin American Studies at the National Autonomous University of Mexico of Mexico (UNAM), said.
However, when analysing the growth of poppy production on Mexican territory, other factors must be taken into account. The signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in 1994 caused damage to Mexico’s agricultural sector. Subsidies were cancelled, and the abolition of tariffs affected sales of local products. Many farmers chose to replace their food crops with others, such as poppies.
Closer to the 2000s, US legislation on medical prescriptions for pharmaceutical-grade opioids was tightened, making them less accessible. “After the adoption of this law, many consumers began to substitute pharmaceuticals with heroin”, Giménez explained.
This has led to a booming heroin market. Marijuana crops were replaced with poppy fields, which have become much more profitable.
“Another reason why the opium poppy gained ground in Mexico was the regulation of the cannabis market in the United States. As soon as the US no longer needed illegal supplies, they stopped buying from Mexico”, said the researcher.
The monitoring of illegal crops by the UNDOC shows that currently, the largest opium poppy producers in Mexico are Sinaloa, Chihuahua, Durango, Nayarit, Jalisco, Michoacán, Guerrero, and Oaxaca states.
“Opium poppy for many farmers is the main crop they grow. But it is a dangerous job because it is done secretly. Cultivation of this crop is punishable by imprisonment. At the same time, the illegality of this business has caused an increase in violence due to trafficking route disputes”, Giménez explained.
In August 2018, the Congress of the state of Guerrero, the subject of the federation with the highest opium production in Mexico, approved a bill to regulate the cultivation of the opium poppy. In order for it to come into force, it must go through a process of review, amendment and approval by the federal legislature.
"Discussions have been initiated and are taking place in the context of the Supreme Court ruling in favour of the cultivation and consumption of marijuana for recreational purposes'', said the researcher.
But parliamentary obstacles are not the only ones preventing legalisation on opium poppy cultivation. Growing the crop in secrecy also serves the interests of drug cartels.
"Illegal business brings more profit. It is a little naive to think that a mere regulation will reduce the level of violence in this market. What it can do, is help integrate farmers working illegally, into the market that exists within the regulatory framework", the researcher concluded.

Canadian drug makers hit with $1.1B lawsuit for promoting opioids despite risks
Unproven claim alleges companies promoted addictive opioids despite knowing risks
Colin Perkel · The Canadian Press · Posted: May 15, 2019 3:34 PM ET | Last Updated: May 15

The representative plaintiff was prescribed Percocet, a type of opioid manufactured by the defendants, after suffering a minor sports injury. (CBC)

Canadian drug makers enriched themselves at the expense of vulnerable patients by illegally and deceptively promoting highly addictive opioids that have killed thousands in recent years, a proposed class action filed Wednesday asserts.

The untested statement of claim filed in Ontario Superior Court seeks more than $1.1 billion in various damages from almost two dozen companies, including some of the biggest pharmaceutical names in the country such as Apotex, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Johnson and Johnson, and the Jean Coutu Group.

The suit, filed on behalf of patients who became addicted to prescribed opioids, also seeks a declaration that the companies were negligent in how they researched, developed and marketed opioids starting in the 1990s.

"The defendants knew that anyone who injected opioids would be at significant risk of becoming addicted," the claim asserts. "As such, the defendants breached statutory and common law duties to the plaintiff and class who became addicted to opioids for which the defendants owe damages."

SECOND OPINIONNew questions about old Canadian study foreshadowing opioid crisis
The proposed representative plaintiff is Darryl Gebien, of Toronto, a former emergency room doctor prescribed the opioid Percocet for a ligament injury in his thumb. Gebien became addicted, the claim asserts.

The defendants knew or ought to have known that their representations regarding the risks and benefits of opioids were not supported by, or were contrary to, scientific evidence.
- Statement of claim
"Dr. Gebien's addiction had a significant and lasting impact on his life," the claim states. "Dr. Gebien lost his licence to practise medicine. He lost his job. He was incarcerated. He lost custody of his children."

Aggressive marketing
Opioids are a powerful narcotic that can induce an addictive, euphoric high that requires higher doses over time to maintain effectiveness and avoid symptoms of withdrawal. The drugs were not widely prescribed for pain treatment because they were considered too addictive but that approach changed in the mid-1990s.

"The defendants promoted opioids as safe, effective and appropriate for long-term use for routine pain conditions," the claim states. "The aggressive marketing efforts of the defendants were incredibly successful."

No statements of defence have been filed and there was no immediate comment from any of the drug companies. Purdue has previous said it marketed its products in accordance with the rules.

The abuse of opioids has become a widespread public health crisis, with fatal overdoses becoming epidemic across North America. They have killed more than 20,000 Canadians over the past 20 years and about 4,000 new deaths occur annually in Canada. In the United States, opioids kill more people than car crashes.

Lawyer Kirk Baert called the lawsuit "long overdue."

"These companies need to be accountable for the harm they have caused to thousands of Canadians," Baert said.

Pseudoaddiction
The named defendants make, market, distribute and sell opioids in Canada. Some of the drugs such as fentanyl, oxycodone, and tramadol have become household names in light of the ravages they have wrought.

The statement of claim alleges the companies indulged in a pattern of "false and deceptive" marketing by, among other things, telling patients that opioid use for pain relief would improve their quality of life without any adverse effects such as addiction or withdrawal issues.

"The defendants knew or ought to have known that their representations regarding the risks and benefits of opioids were not supported by, or were contrary to, scientific evidence," the claim asserts. "[They] advised health-care professionals to ignore signs of addiction on the basis of an unfounded condition they called pseudoaddiction."

Last year, the British Columbia government, which declared a public health emergency in 2016, also filed a proposed class action against pharmaceutical companies in an attempt to recoup the health-care costs associated with opioid addiction. That suit named 40 defendants. Other provinces have also considered taking such action.

This month, the maker of OxyContin in the United States was hit with another state lawsuit that alleges it kept pitching the painkiller to doctors even after its sales representatives raised concerns about inappropriate prescribing.

The lawsuit against Connecticut-based Purdue Pharma, which has said it may have to go bankrupt, made Pennsylvania at least the 39th state to sue the company.

In April 2018, group of Canadian doctors and opioid researchers sent a letter to the attorney general of Canada and to Health Canada demanding a criminal investigation into the marketing of opioids to Canadian doctors.

Last month, the U.S. government filed its first criminal charges against a major drug distributor and company executives over their alleged roles in fuelling the opioid epidemic by putting profits ahead of patients' safety.

Once the 10 percent import penalty is imposed Sept. 1, almost all goods sent to the United States from China will face tariffs. Those tariffs could push the cost of many consumer products higher in the second half of the year.

Workers’ Activism Rises as China’s Economy Slows. Xi Aims to Rein Them In.

JewYorkTimes
By Javier C. Hernández
Feb. 6, 2019
阅读简体中文版閱讀繁體中文版
BEIJING — Factory workers across China are staging sit-ins demanding unpaid wages for “blood and sweat.” Taxi drivers are surrounding government offices to call for better treatment. Construction workers are threatening to jump from buildings if they don’t get paid.

With economic growth in China weakening to its slowest pace in nearly three decades, thousands of Chinese workers are holding small-scale protests and strikes to fight efforts by businesses to withhold compensation and cut hours. The authorities have responded with a sustained campaign to rein in the protests, and most recently detained several prominent activists in the southern city of Shenzhen late last month.

Such protests are a glaring example of the challenges the sharp economic slowdown poses to China’s top leader, Xi Jinping, who has aggressively promoted the “Chinese dream,” his signature vision of greater wealth and a fairer society.


As Chinese families gather this week to celebrate the Lunar New Year, the most important holiday of the year in China, many workers say they are struggling to pay basic expenses like food and rent.

ADVERTISEMENT

“Nobody cares about us anymore,” said Zhou Liang, 46, who took part in a protest last month in Shenzhen outside an electronics factory that he says owes him more than $3,000.

“I sacrificed my health for the company,” he said, “and now I can’t afford to buy even a bag of rice.”

China Labour Bulletin, an advocacy group in Hong Kong that tracks protests, recorded at least 1,700 labor disputes last year, up from about 1,200 the year before. Those figures represent only a fraction of disputes across China, since many conflicts go unreported and Mr. Xi has intensified censorship.

ADVERTISEMENT

The authorities have detained more than 150 people since August, a sharp increase from previous years, including teachers, taxi drivers, construction workers and leftist students leading a campaign against factory abuses.

The unrest puts the ruling Communist Party in an uncomfortable position. Since the days of Mao Zedong, the party has staked its reputation on protecting everyday workers, but increasingly many are blaming party officials for not doing more to defend their rights.

As protests have multiplied, Mr. Xi, China’s most powerful leader since Mao, has sought to reassure workers that he understands their plight.

“You are the most diligent, like diligent bees, traveling here and there and being exposed to the sun and rain,” he said on Friday as he ventured into the streets of Beijing to wish a happy new year to delivery workers, a photo opportunity that was heavily featured in the state-run media. “It’s not easy.”

That was sent back to the maker because NOBODY WANTED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA


HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!









The Washington Post notes in an article that “Trump and Xi lock horns and drag the rest of the world with them”!!

AS if Trump is somehow WRONG for defending democratic values in the face of Chinese AGGRESSIONS!!

RED CHINA seeks exactly the same “lebensraum” or “living space” as NAZI GERMANY DID!! And Red China is going about BUILDING ITS ECONOMIC EMPIRE in exactly the same way as the Nazis- with a combination of terror and bribery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Red China SEEKS MORE of everything at the expense of others!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If either North Korea or Iran manage to obtain and then detonate some nuclear weapons then we can expect MASSIVE LIE-beral WHINING from the survivors!!

Always HYPOCRITE LIE-berals will whine that we pay our intelligence agents and our military LOTS OF MONEY so how could they have been asleep at the switch and let the DICTATORS WREAK HAVOC unopposed????????????????

And LIE-beral HYPOCRITES WILL NOT MENTION that they tied the hands of the military FOR DECADES and REFUSED ANY plan of action that would have minimized the threats we face from dictators and religious nutbars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LIE-berals are now angry with Ivanka Trump for commenting on the recent record gun violence in Chicago............and one is forced to ask: “just HOW ARROGANT AND BIGOTED ARE LIE-berals??

There have been innumerable books and movies detailing the HORRIBLE lives that dwellers in Yankee inner cities live...........and yet when Donald Trump or Ivanka Trump comment on that pain and sorrow......somehow the TRUMPS ARE GUILTY!!

LIE-berals demonstrate that their sense of ENTITLEMENT and their intention to “control the message” are so POWERFUL they feel entitled even to control and regulate expressions of sorrow made by people they do not like!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson says that “white supremacists are not a problem” and he is RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There have always been lunatic fringe nuts in any society!! The number of people willing to take up a gun and shoot at Latinos or Muslims etc is VERY SMALL!!

Rather- it is the ruthless and quite racist LIE-beral exploitation of the actions of a lunatic few that are the real problem- along with the TOTAL INABILITY of govt to keep guns out of the hands of certified LUNATICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And it IS NOT HELPING that some politicians ARE BREAKING THE LAW in defense of Sanctuary Cities and even in defense of illegal CRIMINALS WHO HAVE BEEN CONVICTED OF CRIMES IN AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The biggest provocation that many Yankees see is that some politicians make a VERY NICE LIVING while demanding that THEIR LAWS BE RESPECTED absolutely - while at the same time they INSIST on their right to BREAK LAWS made by others who they do not like that is so enraging and polarizing all of North America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And of course if white culture was NOT superior - then there would NOT be millions of people from third world pest hole countries trying to sneak into white governed lands!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Donald Trump blames companies like Google for trying to sabotage his election in 2015 - by presenting biased views.

In related news - Google has just put a senior employee on “administrative leave” after the guy complained that Google was altering its search algorithms to edit out Conservative views!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In other news- Twitter CEO Mark Zuckerberg has accused Silicon Valley and assorted media of being “very left wing”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has been alleged that Jared Kushner- the son in law of Donald Trump - saw a Trump presidency as a chance to “get out of debt” from a bad real estate deal!!

GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!

If we eliminated every LIE-beral politician and civil service union HOG that was only in the game for the GRAVY..................................

MOST OF THE GOVT WOULD DISAPPEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How insane is the LIE-beral view of the world?? Some of them insist that to deny “systemic racism exists” is to CONFIRM your racist status!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You MUST AGREE with all things LIE-beral or be a racist an white supremacist !

How WILDLY BIGOTED ARE LIE-berals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The LIE-beral concept of “Obstruction of justice” revolves around Trump simply refusing to surrender to LIE-beral Bigots!!

LIE-berals belive those who oppose them are “obstructing justice”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The LIE-beral concept of “justice” is of the sort and quality that can create and maintain a “Gulag Archipelago” full of Political prisoners!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In the aftermath of the Mueller testimony- even CNN admits that the odds of impeaching Trump “just fizzled”! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a SURPRISE that a total lack of convincing evidence would stymy a much longed for LIE-beral LYNCHING of a man they HATE - simply because he is exposing them as PHONIES AND HYPOCRITES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LIE-berals claim there is “systemic racism” preventing ethnic groups from being hired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But LIE-berals DO NOT allow for the LESSER EDUCATION STANDARDS of various ethnic groups!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trump says The Squad - the 4 congress women he has said should go back home - have come from “sh+thole countries”!!

So - WOULD ANYBODY VOLUNTEER to go live in Somalia????????????

There ARE a few people who would go live in Mexico- BUT ONLY if they retain a Cdn or Yankee standard of living!!

Nobody would volunteer to live in Mexico AS AN AVERAGE Mexican!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And nobody would immigrate to Puerto Rico to live as an ordinary person either!!!!

As for immigrating to Palestine - in ANY CAPACITY - the general view is you would have to be NUTS to go there!!!!

Trump is right- The Squad - with its hostility to ANY RESTRICTION on immigration to United States MUST BE REGARDED AS HOSTILE to the majority of Yankees!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AND they must be considered HOSTILE to most Cdns as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After all - Our idiot Boy Justin HAS NOT been able to hide the fact that most Cdns DISAPPROVE of COSTLY LIE-beral immigration policy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
