Texas Congressman Chip Roy Introduces Bill to Award Congressional Gold Medal to Chinese COVID Whistleblower

Published

on

On April 9, 2020, Texas Congressman Chip Roy introduced H.R. 6471, a bill that posthumously awards a Congressional Medal to Dr. Li Wenliang.

Dr. Li was the daring doctor who first called attention to the spread of the Wuhan Virus. He then warned his medical colleagues over social media about the spread of the virus.

Roy noted that Li “did so in the face of the communist Chinese government that tried nearly everything to stop him. He was detained, questioned, and forced to sign a document confessing that he spread illegal rumors.”

Regardless of the virus spreading, Li continued treating patients in Wuhan. In a tragic turn, Li fell to the virus.

Before he died, Li sent a text message to the New York Times: “If the officials had disclosed information about the epidemic earlier, I think it would have been a lot better. There should be more openness and transparency.”

Roy concluded:

I am proud to author legislation to honor Dr. Wenliang — a truly courageous doctor who saved countless lives by telling the world about the dangers of coronavirus. Awarding Congress’s highest civilian award to Dr. Li would not only honor his brave action to warn other about the spread of COVID-19, but also call global attention to China’s lack of transparency and censorship of speech.

The Texas congressman reminded his followers on April 14 that he introduced this bill in a time when hysteria is so high and any kind of positive action is being drowned out by media noise.

He tweeted, “I have introduced legislation to posthumously award the Congressional Gold Medal to Dr. Li Wenliang. Dr. Wenliang was the brave Wuhan doctor who first sounded the alarm about the spread of #coronavirus.”

Let’s hope the rest of Congress joins in Roy in co-sponsoring this bill.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

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.
