1. Generic blood pressure pills made by Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals in China contained NMDA, considered a possible carcinogen.
FDA is testing all drugs in that class to see if they contain the toxic chemical.
Who holds the Chinese company responsible?…
2. The FDA inspects only a small number of the Chinese companies that manufacture U.S. drugs, and those it does inspect are often found to have serious health violations.
3. China has become the primary source of many crucial medical drugs, including penicillin, heparin, and medications essential for surgeries.
4. It’s unclear just how many drugs in the United States come from China, since many drug companies choose to keep their sourcing under wraps or fail to take due diligence in identifying the sources of their ingredients.
5. "If China cut its supplies Surgeries would be canceled, cancer treatments halted, kidney dialysis rationed. Infections would spread. Global reliance on China for drug manufacturing is already becoming a reality."…
6. In the 1990s over 90% of the global Supply of key ingredients for medications were manufactured by United States, Europe and Japan. Now between 70 to 80% is manufactured by China.
7. Turns out this critical shift in the global supply chain came in the early 2000. Bill Clinton in the final year of his second term went into overdrive to pass legislation giving China permanent normal trade relations.…
8. Bill Clinton said "This is a good day for America, in 10 years we will look back and be glad that we did this. We will see that we have given ourselves the chance to build a future we want"
Nope Bubba, you sold the country, and then kept selling some more.
9. China pressured U.S. companies to lobby on its behalf or face economic retribution. Companies that rebuffed Chinese government’s expectations risked being barred from investing, manufacturing, and selling their products in the country.
10. Just three years after the Clinton US China Relations Act of 2000, the US incurred a trade deficit with China to the tune of $124 billion.
Both NAFTA and the normalization of Chinese trade relations have had severe, far-reaching and terrible consequences.
11. Scores of politicians after Bill Clinton willfully crippled the US economy sending jobs elsewhere based either on the altruistic notion that it was liberating the Chinese people or because they were being lobbied by Chinese companies.
12. Rewinding even further to 1993, on May 28, 1993 Bill Clinton signed Executive Order 12850. This improper changed the way the U.S. made trade deals with China and led to the loss of tens of millions of American manufacturing jobs.
13. Clinton established a Democratic strategy for manipulating foreign policy that was copied by both Hillary while she was Secretary of state and when Obama was President.…
14. With his 1993 Executive Order, Bill Clinton unconstitutionally seized control of China's most favored nation (MFN) conditions, removing it from the involvement of Congress.
15. Clinton’s Executive Order was issued at a time when the U.S.-China trade deficit was only $18 billion a year. In 2015 the deficit was $367 billion.
16. At the time China’s MFN status was annually up for review by Congress. The effective law was passed in 1974. What Bill Clinton did, with an EO, was to use “the authority vested in me as President” to rewrite a Congressionally approved treaty and change the terms.
17. This eliminated the power of Congress to approve the annual MFN status. President Clinton, in his 1993 statement, said this was necessary to avoid the “annual battles between Congress and the Executive” which was divisive.
18. The way he changed it is eerily similar to the way Hillary practiced State Department decisions when she was Secretary of State from 2009 to 2012.
19. Bill Clinton’s decision to send jobs to China by permanently controlling its MFN status has been linked to campaign donations. Boeing Company wanted the EO. Boeing was parent company of the Loral Corporation, which donated $100,000 to the DNC in June, 1994.
20. In 2001 Boeing got a $63 million dollar incentive “deal” from the Democratic mayor of Chicago to relocate its headquarters there. These incentives were paid for, by the middle-class and taxpayers who will have to make up that $63 million.
21. What was previously a metaphorical poisoning of America by politicians hellbent on destroying this country has now turned out to be an actual poisoning of its citizens driven by greed, avarice and malevolence.
22. Let me take this time to remind you that the Chinese are working overtime to develop multiple different synthetic drugs in their labs to flood the US market. Fentanyl and its myriad analogs are unbelievably potent.…
23. Past is prologue, the Chinese hack of Hillary's private server is unlikely to be simply a hack based upon the history of Clinton's slow and methodical destruction of Americana.
Envenomation of American politics has spilled to her people.
24. This should also provide excellent context for people wondering why @realDonaldTrump keeps hammering China & NAFTA. He has watched the deliberate destruction of America in real time. The cure to what ails us involves caging the beasts willfully unleashed upon the people.
