Massing US Border Patrol agents at the southern edge of the Strait of Juan de Fuca fails to keep fentanyl out of Clallam County.

Unlike many cities of its size, Port Angeles maintains a significant Homeland Security/CBP/Border Patrol presence.

Newspeople have a long history of not asking questions in this area. Our questions appear in bold type.

Does Port Angeles CBP provide an advantage in keeping drugs away from the Olympic Peninsula?



Have opioid lawsuits played any role in improving the situation?

How do cartels react to opioid lawsuits?

Has a $51.6 billion (every 12 months) US Dept. of Homeland Security created any shortage of opioids in the Puget Sound area?

Are newspeople forbidden to ask questions related to Homeland Security funding and performance?

Newspeople play the role of federal public affairs personnel during Operation Macho Swagger-a ride-along to let us know what is being done to keep the southern edge of the Strait of Juan de Fuca safe from B.C. incursions.

A Fake War on Terror?

Cartel traffickers are frequently successful at what they do. If terrorists were just as interested in entering the US- it appears that federal departments and agencies would have no way to stop them.

Think terrorists are smart enough to pose as drug traffickers- then cross into the US free of screening, scanning, pat downs, special IDs, inspection of personal items, etc.

Most illicit fentanyl is mass-produced in “secret factories” in Mexico with chemicals obtained from China, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration.”

Was It A Fake War On Terror?


Port Angeles

Local people find drugs and report to local (not federal) law enforcement authorities. Federal employees create news story and say that federal agents used a K-9 to “seize” the drugs.

Question for CBP:

Why does the news story created by CBP not line up with local reports?

Question for mainstream newspeople:

If Port Angeles US Border Patrol agents used a K-9  to seize a significant amount of methamphetamine on April 11, why did federal agents not take over the investigation until May 3rd, three weeks later?

Mainstream newspeople remain silent.

Two defendants appear on indictment connected to $7 million in drugs left on beach near Port Angeles, Washington in April 2021

More than 400 pounds of methamphetamine and two pounds of fentanyl powder show up on a beach near Port Angeles. Local CBP fails to keep product from entering Clallam County. How did this meth and fentanyl enter the US?

Zero questions from newspeople.

“On April 7, 2021, beachcombers near Port Angeles reported a black duffel bag with drugs inside. The Clallam County Sheriff’s office took possession of the bag found to contain 2 pounds of fentanyl powder and nearly 60 pounds of methamphetamine. The fentanyl powder was originally believed to be cocaine. Just days later, on April 11, 2021, a different beach walker reported another find – seven more duffel bags containing 342 pounds of methamphetamine. The Sheriff’s Office estimated the street value of the drugs as nearly $7 million.”
