China, Mexico, and Fentanyl: A Recipe for U.S. Security Threats

July 25, 2023

Former Mexican counter-narcotics officer Ed Calderon predicts a day of reckoning.

If you were a fan of Narcos or Sicario, brace yourself to hear the real story about what’s happening south of the U.S. border.

Ed Calderon is a man who should not be alive. He fled death threats and now lives in the United States, where he is a security consultant.  

Over the next three episodes, Calderon will take us inside the crime scene tape in Mexico, where cartels, dirty police officers, and serial killers from the U.S. get away with murder.

In part one. we discuss Mexico’s unholy alliance with China to make deadly Fentanyl, the modern-day black plague in America. 

In closing, here’s my Reporter’s recap and reflections.

I believe you can take what Ed Calderon says to the bank.

I say this based on my experience as an investigator for a Congressional defense committee and a television reporter covering national security issues, including three wars.

If you want to learn more about the growing threat of the cartels,  I recommend reading The Accident Superpower by geo-political analyst Peter Zeihan.  The chapter that Zeihan considers the darkest is titled “The North American Drug War.”
