That headline may seem a bit fantastic, but the federal government has just announced that authorities have made one of the biggest fentanyl seizures at the border in U.S. history.

The feds grabbed up enough of the dangerous drug to kill 115 million Americans, they said.

According to the Arizona Republic, 254 pounds of the drug was seized at the Nogales border crossing last weekend.

“According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a canine officer alerted other officers to the presence of 254 pounds of fentanyl inside a hidden floor compartment of an 18-wheeler carrying cucumbers, during a secondary inspection at the Mariposa port of entry just past noon on Saturday,” the paper reported.

“It has been sent for a chemical analysis so we won’t know the purity until a much later date,” said Michael Humphries, the port director for Nogales.

But even without known exactly how powerful the seized drug is, the government said it was enough to kill 115 million Americans.

The paper added:

“Normally, the southwest border ports are intercepting the most fentanyl, compared to other ports of entry, airports, seaports, the northern border,” he said, noting that Nogales is one of the key routes.

“This is the largest fentanyl seizure in any port of entry,” he said. “In CBP, in the history of CBP, this is the largest fentanyl seizure.”

The drug was found hidden in a semi-truck being driven by a 26-year-old Mexican national.

The fentanyl was not the only illegal substance found in the rig.

In addition to the fentanyl, officers also seized 395 pounds of methamphetamine hidden inside the compartment in the 18-wheeler.That was the third largest seizure of its kind along the Arizona border, CBP said. Combined the two drug busts have an estimated street value of $4.5 million.

This is the sort of stuff that Democrats would just let flood our country with no one to stop it if they got their way of eliminating our border patrol and other law enforcement agencies. not to mention our immigration laws.

Teachers Shot by Police with Air Pistols During Shooter Drill Speak Out

The Sheriff’s Department stood by their decision, however, essentially saying that the teachers were shot with the air pistols because they didn’t act quickly enough, like a dog being smacked with a newspaper.

mass shooting

The idea that we, as Americans, must participate in “active shooter” drills is spooky enough, but one law enforcement agency is taking things too far…and teachers are speaking out. The horror and confusion of an active shooter situation is unfathomable for many of us.  Suddenly, at work or school or the subway, the deafening report of gunfire would be instantaneously confusing and oppressive.  Our fight or flight instincts would kick in, sending us to the floor with the possibility of altered auditory senses.  From there, the terror truly begins as we play out any number of scenarios in our heads. These instances are terrifying and harrowing in ways that only those who have lived through them can understand. Active shooter drills, on the other hand, are meant to be learning experiences.  Sure, some urgency is needed to provide us the opportunity necessary to develop the muscle memory desired, but do we really have to shoot teachers with pellet guns in order to get the point across? That’s what one group of educators is pondering today. An Indiana teachers union is demanding change to active shooter drill protocols after teachers at an elementary school reported that they had been injured when they were shot by Airsoft guns during a recent exercise. “During active shooter drill, four teachers at a time were taken into a room, told to crouch down and were shot execution style with some sort of projectiles — resulting in injuries to the extent that welts appeared, and blood was drawn,” a statement from the Indiana State Teachers Association on Wednesday said. Association members said they were injured during the drill at Monticello’s Meadowlawn Elementary School, according to the statement. The drill was conducted by the White County Sheriff’s Department, which defended the methods it used. White County Sheriff Bill Brooks said…

American Schools Are Failures: Most Americans Don’t Know What Bill of Rights Is

The poll tends to prove that liberals have succeeded in undermining America though the thorough destruction of the quality of our education.

Bill of rights

A new study of Americans finds that few have any idea what freedoms are protected by the first ten amendments of the Constitution nor do they know these amendments are called the Bill of Rights. It just shows that the liberals controlling our system of miseducation have succeeded in undermining this country and that our schools are some of America’s biggest enemies. Our schools are failures at teaching and turning out Americans, certainly. But they are a great success at turning out morons and sheep, and this poll proves it. The poll posted to StudyFinds.com finds that most Americans have some vague idea that our First Amendment rights are under attack, but when asked to detail just what the First Amendment is, most had no idea how to respond. The new poll found that six in ten Americans thought our freedom of speech was under attack. That is a good thing… though it should be ten in ten. But, still, at least a majority understand that the left is attacking our rights. Unfortunately, the study also found that most couldn’t name what rights the First Amendment covers nor could they even say how many Amendments make up the Bill of Rights, nor even say what that name even meant. “Of the 2,000 adults who took part in the poll, half thought that ‘liberty’ is one of the five freedoms protected by the First Amendment, while nearly half (49 percent) believed ‘the pursuit of happiness’ was included,” the poll said. “Thankfully, only 3 percent named ‘life’ as one of the protected freedoms.” I am not sure why the folks at StudyFinds thought it was “thankfully” that only a small percentage thought “life” was in the First Amendment but be that as it may. The poll also found that only 26 percent…
