U.S. COVID czar and Wuhan biolab funder Dr. Anthony Fauci made the news rounds this past week, proselytizing for children four years and younger to receive three doses of so-called COVID vaccines.
But while media and politicians continue to push for big pharma COVID non-cures for children, they have been derelict on something actually ravaging the nation’s youth.
Deaths from drug overdoses far surpassed COVID deaths for youth aged 18 and younger in the period from April 2020 to 2021.
A late November CDC bulletin noted:
“Provisional data from CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics indicate that there were an estimated 100,306 drug overdose deaths in the United States during the 12-month period ending in April 2021, an increase of 28.5% from the 78,056 deaths during the same period the year before.”
Opioids accounted for about three out of four of those deaths. But synthetic drugs, primarily fentanyl, have accounted for a rising proportion of deaths.
Psychostimulants like methamphetamine, and even cocaine also saw increased use, with devastating consequences.
As drug deaths among young people have soared, youth COVID deaths, even by the CDC’s dubious attribution standards, are currently tallying about a thousand total, as of January 2022:

The Trends Journal has previously reported on the exponential rise in the China-driven fentanyl crisis, including “SADLY, AS FORECAST: FIGHTING THE COVID WAR = RECORD-BREAKING OPIOID DEATHS” and “FENTANYL: A KILLER OPIOID.”
COVID and China Fueled Fentanyl Problem Only Growing
A story this week from Connecticut again highlighted the problem. A 13-year-old Hartford boy not only overdosed on fentanyl, but police recovered over 100 bags of the drug in his room.
“This fentanyl was packaged in the same manner as the bags located at the school, had the same identifying stamp, and tested at an even higher purity level (60% purity),” Hartford police noted in a statement. 
Biden’s first year as President saw inflows of the highly lethal drug rise more than 200 percent.
On 27 January U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) put out a tweet boasting about recent interdiction success:
“CBP agents and officers seized more than 2,700lbs of fentanyl during the first three months of FY22 [which is actually Oct thru Dec of 2021—Ed.]
“Check out additional agency drug seizure statistics by component, type, and location:
It’s a drop in the ocean compared to how much is getting past woefully lax borders. As CNN and others have pointed out, China has been at the center of a toxic “synthetic road” of designer drugs, mainlining huge amounts into America, via Mexican cartels and other drug lords.
Immigration policies have literally fostered the spread of the drug distribution infrastructure.
Anyone who says the problem is rooted in an American appetite for such drugs has no clue about the sordid and disgusting techniques these professional pushers use to hook mostly school-aged kids into addiction and death.
Joe Biden’s grand plan for it all isn’t about addressing the issue with China, stemming drug connected immigrant inflows, or beefing up enforcement against gangs and pushers.
Biden touted $4 billion in funding from the Covid-19 relief package, known as the American Rescue Plan, including “expanding services for substance use disorder and mental health.”
In talking about the crisis, Biden also told reporters in November that his administration is “working to make health coverage more accessible and affordable for all Americans, so that more people who need care can get it.”
But besides criminally inadequate enforcement and interdiction policies, the disruptions of lockdowns, masking and social distancing, a deteriorating economy and educational calamity have fueled a COVID era drug dystopia that is especially harming youth.
As an MSN story on the Connecticut tragedy observed, the incidence of drug overdose fatalities using synthetic opioids other than methadone, such as fentanyl, rose from 11.4 per 100,000 in 2019 to 17.8 per 100,000 in 2020.
In other words, during the first year of the COVID pandemic, synthetic opioid deaths increased nearly 60 percent.
As the American medical establishment, governmental authorities and media continue to press for mRNA injections for toddlers and infants, the lie of their “caring” can be readily discerned by what they’re NOT framing as a national emergency.
And that’s the COVID fueled overdosing of the nation’s youth.
