    The United States Embassy has told Americans in Russia to leave the country immediately while outbound flights remain available. In a security alert on its website Sunday, the U.S. Embassy in Russia warned Americans to flee the country due to the continued cancelation of commercial flights. “An increasing number of airlines are canceling flights into and out of Russia, and numerous countries have closed their airspace to Russian airlines,” the alert said. “U.S. citizens should consider departing Russia immediately via commercial options still available.” The U.S. Embassy further reminded Americans in the country that the Department of State’s Travel Advisory...

    Ukraine is about to become Afghanistan 2.0 for Americans hoping to evacuate. Fox News Channel is reporting that the Biden Administration will not be able to evacuate U.S. citizens from Ukraine. “Given that the President has said military action by Russia could come at any time.

So US citizens, currently present in Ukraine should plan accordingly.” Arrange commercial flights,” a State Dept. official is quoted as saying on a phone call. The announcement is reminiscent of the administration’s feckless handling of the evacuation of Afghanistan — when...

    At a time when US forces scramble to wind down evacuation efforts in Afghanistan, one of the most crucial resources that stranded American citizens have relied on to guide them safely to their evacuation flights was unavailable for several hours. The US Embassy in Kabul operates an ‘alert page‘ that provides status updates about the evacuation efforts and also details ways for those who are trapped behind enemy lines to reach the airport. On Saturday morning, visitors to the page were met by a “404 Error – Page Not Found.”

    While Biden Adminstration tries rushes 3,000 Marines to Afghanistan in the hopes of protecting the U.S. Embassy, it is my personal belief that the Embassy is already lost and surrounded! As I told a friend the other day, "The only thing that is factual in Afghanistan is loyalty to one's clan." and with the Taliban less that 50 miles from the capital, "How long do we expect Government Officials and the laughable Afghan Security Forces to hold on to the fantasy that they can stop the Taliban?" With 1,000s of refugees are currently flooding into Kabul daily expect the security...

    The experts all told us Donald Trump had no chance to win the presidency in 2016. Then he had the audacity to win anyway. The experts all told us Joe Biden would crush Donald Trump in 2020, and that the Democrats would sweep Congress. Reality intervened: Republicans gained in the House, have more than a shot at keeping the Senate, and the presidential election was diabolically close, whatever its ultimate outcome turns out to be. The experts didn’t seem to have a problem with socialism, riots, or “defund the police,” but those are triggering civil war within the Democratic...
