Tensions among the United States, Russia and Ukraine are not subsiding. President Joe Biden and his administration have vigorously and repeatedly told Americans to leave the region, likely trying to avoid a catastrophic result similar to that in Afghanistan.
President Biden was even so kind as to tell Americans if they don’t leave and get stuck, they will not be “rescued” after not listening. In the latest news, Russia has expelled the second-most senior American diplomat at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.
On Thursday, a State Department spokesman said “Russia’s action against our [deputy chief of mission] was unprovoked and we consider this an escalatory step and are considering our response,” referring to Russia ordering U.S. deputy chief of mission Bart Gorman to leave the country despite having a valid visa.
National Review reports the expulsion comes after President Biden said he believes Russia could invade Ukraine in the next several days. Biden has said roughly 150,000 Russian troops have gathered at the Ukraine border.

Russia claims it has decreased the troop presence, but NATO and U.S. officials say there is “no evidence” of such claims. “Every indication that we have is that they are prepared to go into Ukraine, attack Ukraine,” Biden said. “My sense is it will happen within the next several days,” he added.
“We call on Russia to end its baseless expulsions of U.S. diplomats and staff and to work productively to rebuild our missions,” the State Department spokesman added. “Now more than ever, it is critical that our countries have the necessary diplomatic personnel in place to facilitate communication between our governments.”

Majority of Americans believe cartels have more control over border than our government
The Vice President of the United States claimed, only days ago, that the U.S. southern border is “secure.” Not only did her comment receive severe pushback from lawmakers and border agents and agencies, but the American people don’t buy her rhetoric.
A poll published Thursday by RMG Research shows a majority of Americans “believe cartels have more control over the southern border than the U.S. government.”
Sixty-one percent of registered voters surveyed said that cartels had greater control of the border, compared to 19 percent who said the government has more control. Twenty percent of respondents were “not sure.”
National Review reports:
The poll surveyed 1,200 registered voters from September 20 to 21, and was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen. The margin of error is +/- 2.8 percent.
The majority of voters surveyed, 54 percent, responded that the federal government is not “seriously trying to secure the border and reduce illegal immigration.”
Sixty percent of voters said the “failure of the federal government to secure the southern border” is a bigger problem that governors like Ron DeSantis sending illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, and 63 percent said it is “hypocritical” for sanctuary cities, like Martha’s Vineyard, to complain when illegal immigrant are sent there.
Another poll by CRC Research obtained exclusively National Review showed that 63 percent agree that sanctuary cities like Chicago, New York City, and Washington, D.C., should share the burden of having illegal immigrants with border states.
The rampant hypocrisy of Democratic lawmakers was on full display after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sent 50 illegal immigrants to the Martha’s Vineyard, the liberal playground vacation destination in Massachusetts.
Within 24 hours, Democratic lawmakers in Martha’s Vineyard blasted the Florida governor for being “cruel,” then gave the illegal immigrants shelter and food, before putting them on busses and taking them away; ridding their town of the burdensome migrants they claim to support.
Washington, D.C., mayor Muriel Bowser has also said her city “is not a border town,” is “not Texas,” and doesn’t have the infrastructure to handle this type of and level of immigration to our city.”
The poll also shows voters believe ending illegal immigration is important. 83 percent of respondents said it was important, 55 percent said it would have a positive effect on the economy, and 44 percent said it would “significantly reduce crime.”
