When the story first broke I wondered how college students would be proficient enough in CPR to wind up with a secondary fentanyl overdose. (Four OD’d directly, two while performing CPR.) Now it makes sense. The world’s best military training at work.
This horror should be cause for serious self-reflection at the United States Military Academy. I have heard before now from parents who say the Covid restrictions at West Point are absurd; maybe those strictures played a role in this acting out.
But even if that’s part of the explanation, it can’t be an excuse. These cadets are supposed to be the best we have, and Duty, Honor, and Country are drilled into them. Cocaine is not part of the motto.
Heartbreaking beyond belief. Our military is becoming a catastrophe in the making. There are Marines sitting in barracks for months waiting to be released due to denying the Covid vaccination. They have no idea when they are being released and they are losing their mind. We are witnessing the purposeful destruction of our country. FJB and the horse he rode in on 47 years ago.
After speaking to my child, who has been in college less than one year, I have come to the conclusion that I should inform all parents that they should do whatever they can to dissuade their children from attending ANY US college or university right now. The brainwashing is beyond shocking and currently seems complete.
I'm glad I'm old. My heart can't take much more of this. I pray all the time.
Elections have consequences. In this case you have Brandon opening up the southern border for fentanyl and other horrors. Remember this next time you're trying to decide between a guy who sends mean tweets and one who hates America.
All our institutions are garbage now, thanks to our psycopathic “elite.”
COVID restrictions that do absolutely NOTHING against the RO. NOTHING.
Fact: cocaine has killed more members of the military under the age of 30 than COVID. In one day.
Tighten up the Southern border rather than concern for a Eastern European quasi democracy
Military brass is more worried about transgenders and weak psyches demanding their "pronouns" be "respected" rather than training men and women to be elite warriors protecting the best country on earth.. well, used to be the best. The US military is an abhorrent mess, and it starts with the Obama deep state intentional destruction of all things good about the US. The planned demolition continues.
Close our border, finish the wall, declare the Mexican cartels terrorist organizations
And stop this poison from killing our children...Congress, the hell with Ukraine...we need help at home you corrupt bastrds DO SOMETHING NOW
According to a report on Tucker tonight, 285 people a day are dying from Fentanyl poisoning in the USA. This is a direct result of illegal drug trafficking over the southern border.
CLOSE THE BORDER!!! Joe Biden has more BLOOD on his hands .
Apparently drug testing has lapsed a bit at the service academies since my spring break days in the 80s. We wouldn’t dare smoke weed let alone do cocaine.
Profoundly tragic, but with what has gone on with societal upheaval that has only been amplified at the academies, I’m not surprised by this.
People do drugs to “escape” the things they feel shackle or hold them back. Getting away from Covid-prison to spring break in Florida? Hell yes, they’re going to stray! The fentanyl running through our country right now is 100% the fault of Brandon refusing to enforce the border laws he was entrusted to uphold—and took an oath to—but I digress.
To put into perspective, I live in a small town in Tennessee. Recently, our Highway Patrol pulled over a car from Texas. During a search, they found a hollowed-out car battery case with shrink-wrapped fentanyl packs inside. It was enough to kill 2.4 million people! It’s in SOOOOOO many drugs now—even some pot is laced with it.
How long’s it been since you heard of a meth lab being shut down? Right…awhile. It’s now made more potent and far cheaper in Mexico and smuggled across the open southern border as a cash-cow crop for the cartels.
Brandon’s TDS-knee-jerk undoing of all policies-Trump, has led to so much fentanyl crossing the border, it makes Ukrainian bio-weapons look like child’s play!
These college kids were vacationing here in Fort lauderdale, about a mile from my house. Fentanyl is pouring through our borders, our open borders, thanks to biden. Biden's administration has these kids welfare and all the other kids who have died from fentanyl poisonings, on their hands. These are poisonings, not overdoses. I repeat, poisonings. You don't overdose giving CPR to your buddy. These are poisonings.
I'm Canadian and worry about America. Without a strong America in control of itself, there's little hope for the West. It's essential America gets its shit together.
We need to stop calling Fentanyl deaths OD’ing
It’s intentional poisoning and murder
Dumb, druggies, but at least they’re woke and anti-racists
Horrible. A classmate of my son is a freshman football player at Westpoint, one of 3 that’s unvaccinated. They have made his life hell. He has to do everything except shower in a mask and the three are isolated away from everyone else. They have not been allowed to play or practice football since early in the season. He has applied for religious exemption and it’s been turned down. He is currently appealing but is expected to lose and will end up having to transfer.
I have 3 kids, aged 20, 18, & 17. Sent this story to them. Scary time to be young and be parents of young adults. 🙏
Many people won't like this answer, but when everyone winks at "partying" be it drinking to get drunk or smoking pot, college kids (and cadets) want to push the envelope and go further. If you have to get high to enjoy life, something is wrong.
This is communists being communists. Read your history. They are not Democrats or Socialists. Those are the labels they hide behind. If we don't wake up and realize the enemy is among us, we will lose our country. What did these cadets learn at West Point that they believed this was ok? The cadets in my day would never have considered drugs. So sad...
“We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.” —C.S. Lewis
This story is sad and disgusting but it confirms that this nation is fucked. These kids get brainwashed at schools because parents are too busy doing everything else except influencing their kids to love this country and become good citizens. I believe it all starts at home. Sometimes genetics are too strong but in many cases environment can help kids develop in healthy adults who love this country and, especially as West Point graduates, will be willing to die for it.
The Woke Nazis have infiltrated our military. It has rotted from the inside.
Don't expect them to save you.
Buy guns and ammo.
Heartbroken for all families and friends touched by this horror. Fentanyl is the Fourth Wave.
I still dont understand why a dealer would put fentanyl in their cocaine? Its just as expensive so they arent cutting it with something cheaper. I dont get it.
As a mom to a college freshman, this breaks my heart. My husband graduated from West Point, and I completely agree. There’s a huge problem with our military right now. Even though these kids made their decision out of free will, we still need to sit back and realize how much we’ve failed them the last two years.
Duty, Honor and Country isn’t what’s being drilled into them anymore.
Thank Biden’s open border. Tons of this shit is coming in.
A real leader would be nationally talking to the country about how he/she is going to immediately stop this poison from killing our children. Every single metric with which we measure the success of our wellbeing is being destroyed. From health policy, inflation, crime, border, international affairs, education, censorship, on and on.. When will people wake up? What will it take?
Very simple explanation for this, I got it from my wife. When you tolerate something, you get more of it. That includes drug abuse.
This make me so sad! I do feel like the “end of Covid” is like the end of prohibition! The excess will be prolific. The lock downs and restrictions for some were so oppressive that the backlash will be excessive as well. The collateral damage will likely never be fully understood. Our youth will pay the price. Heartbreaking
They all were on Army's football team. Didn't you know that football players on any campus are royalty and allowed to do whatever they want?
Everything is crumbling in this country.. nothing makes sense anymore…. I am 68…. I just realize my grankids will live in a different place… different America… I’m very sad for what is happening here 😪😖
Terrible tragedy? Yes. But not the most depressing news story today. I’m sorry if I don’t feel sorry for adults dying while doing stupid things. The most depressing news story I heard today is a 7 year old dying of cardiac arrest 13 days after getting the Pfizer shot. Innocent children dying because of the stupidity of their parents is depressing. Adults OD’ing on illegal substances? That’s what happens when you do drugs. Just say no.
Sleepy Joe is the most blackmailable Pol in US history. This is all intentionally done.The destruction of all our institutions. Was a good couple hundred years.
Here we go again. Fentanyl kills so therefore it is the problem. Nothing is said about the people doing the drug. Nobody is forcing this on the druggies. Recreational or not. This is just like blaming the gun for the violence.
Hey Alex, why does Zelensky the Jewish puppet president of Ukraine have the neonazi Azov battalion integrated into Ukrainian national guard?
And why do lie about it?
If they can't handle those restrictions then they can't handle being military officers. And if they feel they need drugs to have a good time then they are woefully immature and we don't WANT them in our military.
Getting into West Point requires connections to, and recommendations from a sitting legislator. You figure out what kind of people and kids have that kind of access and you'll find your cadets (honorably serving with soberness or party animals used to the spoilage and interference conducted on their behalf from often rich parents.)
When I attended the AFA in the 1970s there were several suicides. The press was told accidental deaths etc. I was present at one of the suicides at the rifle range. Evidently the military establishment has not learned anything.
All part of the UN/WEF/NWO/Davos/EU elite to destroy the one last huge bastion of freedom in the entire world. If the US falls---the world follows. You will own nothing and you will be happy. That's what these demons have been waiting for. 0bama's divide and conquer strategy is firmly in place. This 'trojan horse' has been in total control of every US agency since 2008--including Trumps four years. They are so close to completing the destruction of the US they can feel it. You think they're going to allow the November elections to go off in any normal way? Dream on.
A 37 year healthy father of 4 passed from my Church passed away in his sleep a couple nights ago. All I could think was, “Could it have been the vaccine?”
Fentanyl. China's bioweapon against the young in the U. S. It is flooding across our southern border daily. Took out our best friends' son. Took it for a painful knee. Got tired. Laid down. Never came to. Died in his sleep.
Such is the state of our military.
We will lose a major war.
I 🙏🏻 they’re all okay.
But, instead of shipping $13B to Ukraine, we could use it to build a freakin’ wall to keep some of those fentanyl OD’s from happening.
The military is rotting. We need to dismantle it all.
I'm not excusing their behavior, but the cocaine was not the problem. The fentanyl was.
Why are the cartels lacing drugs with fentanyl?
Why are the Chinese sending fentanyl to Mexico?
Why is our useless government doing nothing to stop the flow of drugs into the country?
It's almost like they want to kill people.
And, yes, folks, Nancy Reagan was right. Just say no.
OD is incorrect Alex, this is Fentanyl poisoning. This happens everyday to the homeless population here on the West Coast. They think it's meth or heroin but the drugs have been cut with cheaper Fentanyl at some point in the supply chain. This is how you get 100K drug "overdoses" in the US last year.
But look at the bright side, they will call everyone by their preferred pronouns.
The death of these young people is tragic and a symptom of a very sick society.
Duty, Honor & Country? More like diversity, equity and inclusion now. Total horseshit.
