The State Department issued a security alert early Thursday morning reminding Americans in Ukraine that the United States will not be helping citizens evacuate.

The announcement to “remain vigilant and take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness” echoes the Biden administration’s response to the chaos in Afghanistan when the Taliban took over last year.
“The U.S. government will not be able to evacuate U.S. citizens from Ukraine,” the warning read.
“Know the location of your closest shelter or protected space,” the department told Americans.

“In the event of mortar and/or rocket fire, follow the instructions from local authorities and seek shelter immediately,” it added. “If you feel that your current location is no longer safe, you should carefully assess the potential risks involved in moving to a different location.”
National radio host Todd Starnes slammed Biden for the announcement.“State Dept. tells Americans in Ukraine that they are on their own,” Starnes tweeted. “Biden leaves everyone behind.” The State Department said it has suspended consular operations in Lviv in western Ukraine amid “reports of Russian attacks on targets in a number of major Ukrainian cities, including Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odesa, Mariupol and others.” Biden Responds to Russia’s ‘Unjustified’ Attack on Ukraine, Lays Out U.S. Response The U.S. Embassy in Kyiv suspended operations earlier this month.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
