A new book, BLOOD MONEY by Peter Schweizer, provides a detailed road map about how deeply corrupted our governments are by the Chinese Communist Party and their proxies in organized crime. They are responsible for the current fentanyl crisis, which kills over 100K Americans a year, according to the CDC.

Blood Money: Why the Powerful Turn a Blind Eye While China Kills Americans

According to the L.A. County Department of Health, accidental fentanyl overdose deaths increased 1,652% from 109 in 2016 to 1,910 in 2022. From 2016 to 2021, fentanyl overdose ED visits increased 621% from 133 to 959.

A new book, BLOOD MONEY by Peter Schweizer, reports on Governor of California Gavin Newsom’s longtime connections to the Chinese Mafia. According to Schweizer, the Communist Chinese government sanctions the Chinese mafia to conduct its businesses, including exporting fentanyl to the U.S. through a Mexican drug cartel. In fact, according to Schweizer, there are dozens of Chinese nationals right across the border working directly with the Sinaloa Cartel to manufacture fentanyl prior to shipping it into the U.S.

“Peter Schweizer reports in Blood Money that Newsom maintained links to Chinese organized crime through his connections to known triad members and that these connections go beyond the ChinaSF initiative that Newsom launched in 2008 to bring Chinese businesses to San Francisco. Newsom’s relationship with Chinese businessman Vincent Lo, who served as the cochairman of ChinaSF and the president of the Council for the Promotion and Development of Yangtze,”

ChinaSF was highly favorable to the Chinese entities involved: any investment they made in an American company would grant them intellectual property rights in China for the technology developed. It “would involve U.S. companies handing over their secret formulas.” But many of the Chinese companies and businessmen that were involved in ChinaSF and benefited from the program had ties to Chinese organized crime.

Newsom’s ChinaSF partner Vincent Lo has ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), as well as alleged ties to the triads, according to Blood Money.

Newsom’s links to triad members also went beyond the ChinaSF endeavor. Schweizer writes:

Mayor Newsom worked with a San Francisco businessman named Allen Leung and reappointed him as chairman of the Chinatown Economic Development Group. But Leung was no ordinary businessman; he was the dragonhead of the “ominous” Chee (variously “Ghee” or “Gee”) Kung Tong, “transpacific incarnations of criminal Triad gangs originating in China.” Members of his gang were involved in the drug trade. Leung was brutally murdered in 2006.

While Newsom was still lieutenant governor in 2016, Shrimp Boy, who was a “dragonhead” of the Chee Kung Tong himself, landed in severe legal trouble that led to a murder conviction. Schweizer writes:

In 2016, Shrimp Boy was charged with a total of 162 counts of racketeering, aiding and abet- ting the laundering of drug money, and other offenses and was found guilty of murder. Among those crimes was his apparent involvement in the killing of Leung.

Shrimp Boy’s lawyers argued that the prosecutor in his case, who had been appointed by Newsom, culled “political figures out of the prosecution.” Those who skirted criminal charges, according to the lawyers, included individuals “appointed, connected, extremely closely associated with” Gavin Newsom and other political elites.

“While the FBI was investigating Shrimp Boy, its agents were introduced to Jackson, who claimed that his son ran a $50,000-a-week drug business,” Schweizer writes. “Jackson was later charged in a murder-for-hire scheme and a gunrunning deal involving Shrimp Boy and the Chinese triads. Those charges were dropped as part of a plea agreement.”

“A broad national conversation dealing with Chinese organized crime, which is intimately involved in the drug trade, would raise uncomfortable questions for Newsom. And politicians like to avoid discomfort,” he writes in Blood Money.

For instance, Newsom unveiled a vision to address the fentanyl crisis in March 2023 that failed to include measures to hold the CCP accountable for the drug trade it is so heavily involved in.

“The strategy included elements such as deploying the National Guard to seize fentanyl supplies, conducting overdose prevention efforts, raising awareness about the dangers of drugs, and holding the ‘opioid pharmaceutical industry accountable,’” Blood Money states. “Somehow, Newsom’s comprehensive plan overlooked holding Beijing accountable for its involvement in every step of this scourge.”

Newsom received “superlative treatment” from Beijing during the trip, according to Blood Money, as evidenced by his meeting with Chinese Communist Leader Xi Jinping in the Great Hall of the People, the optics of which were starkly different from Secretary of State Anthony Blinken’s visit months before.

Over 100K Americans are dying every year from overdose deaths from synthetic opioids (primarily fentanyl). Joe Biden and Gavin Newsom, according to Peter Schweizer, are directly responsible for allowing this scourge across our country to take the lives of our children, our friends, our neighbors, and our families.
