Joe Biden has warned Putin there will be consequences if critic Alexei Navalny is allowed to die in jail as doctors warn his health is failing amid hunger strike. US national security adviser Jake Sullivan said on Sunday that Biden is weighing up a range of responses if Navalny dies, and that Moscow is aware of the threat. Meanwhile EU leaders said sanctions placed on Russia earlier this year could be increased if Navalny perishes, with a summit to discuss the issue on Monday. It comes after Yaroslav Ashikhmin, a doctor acting on behalf of Navalny's family, said test results received from the Russian penal colony

Why should Putin pay this Alzheimer’s patient any mind at all? He is NOT the POTUS! NOBODY is in charge to speak for this country! Unjailed criminals are now sitting in the White House!

Wot's a "consequence"? Here are some suggestions: Kamala will present a two minute video statement with her mask on promising consequences We will bring all war ships home, promising to send them back immediately if they are needed. We will shout video's of Russian fighter aircraft escorting our spy planes and post them in the UFO file. We will have the UN ambassador Linda Thomas Greenfield lecture Putin for 40 unrelenting minutes about the racist constitution of America. We will send Al Sharpton to collect a few million bucks for himself. We'll start a Black Lives Matter chapter in Moscow. We'll have CNN investigate.

Doesn’t president *ssterisk realize that Putin is not "corn pop"?...someone please tell him. Threatening world leaders without any plans or intentions of backing it up is simply bad diplomacy. To put it mildly.

It looks like Biden is running out of consequences fairly quickly, when that happens what will Biden do next, perhaps stumble into a shooting war with a nuclear power? Once Biden’s consequences are used up, what will Russia do then, perhaps roll through and take over the Russian speaking areas of Eastern Ukraine? Remember during the Obama-Biden era the Russians took over the Crimea. What did Obama and Biden do about that, as we remember, they talked a lot about consequences, but Russia is still in Ukraine.

Why are we supposed to care about a Russian sitting in prison when we have political prisoners being abused in American jails right now, for the crime of walking through the Capitol building? An unarmed American citizen was murdered by a police officer who the "authorities" refuse to name or charge with a crime, but biden and his puppet handlers are apparently trying to start a war with Russia over one of their citizens. All these narratives, false flags, hysteria about covid and climate change, white supremacy and police brutality are really starting to get old. Being misdirected to get all excited about Russia is not going to work, when we have so many real problems right here at home. All of them created, managed and stage by the left.

The U.S. Department of State announced on Monday it will issue a 'Level 4: Do Not Travel' advisory, its highest warning, for about 80 percent of countries. In an official statement, the agency said the risk of COVID-19 while traveling remains too high and urged Americans to 'reconsider all travel abroad.'

Thirteen of the nation’s leading electricity companies are pledging to work with President Biden to slash carbon emissions ahead of Thursday’s international White House summit on climate change.

A 36-year-old Brazilian man caught jumping the border over the weekend pointed to an 8-year-old girl with him and claimed she was his daughter. Agents didn’t believe him. After questioning the two immigrants, they realized their stories didn’t match up. The man then admitted he was a friend of the child’s mother in Brazil and was using the girl to pretend to be a family, hoping to take advantage of the more lenient treatment U.S. policy affords parents who show up with children in tow. Fake families plagued border authorities during the 2019 surge, and experts say they are pouring through again.
