On March 4, 2020, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo thanked the Chinese government for donating 1,000 ventilators.
He also thanked Jack Ma, the co-founder of e-commerce Alibaba, and Joe Tsai, another co-founder of Alibaba and the owners of the Brooklyn Nets, for their help.
Cuomo tweeted, “We finally got some good news today. The Chinese government helped facilitate a donation of 1,000 ventilators that will arrive in JFK today. I thank the Chinese government, Jack Ma, Joe Tsai, the Jack Ma Foundation, the Tsai Foundation and Consul General Huang.”

NetsDaily reported that Tsai and his wife, Clara, were able to facilitate an initial shipment of 2.6 million masks, 170,000 goggles, and 2,000 ventilators
“We kept hearing cries for (personal protective equipment) from our community and wanted to help,” Clara Tsai said in a CNN interview. The state will allocate the second shipment but “it’s our intention to help the most underserved institutions.”
Clara Tsai said Jacobi Medical Center and Lincoln Medical Center in the Bronx, and Elmhurst Hospital in Queens were institutions she and her husband believed would need the supplies the most.
Chinese Counsel General Huang Ping, the People’s Republic diplomatic emissary in New York, was also thanked for facilitating the donation.
Although this was a nice gesture from the Chinese government, we should remain skeptical.
There are already reports of defective masks coming from China.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
