U.S. astronaut Mark Vande Hei is scheduled to return to earth next month, but Russia is threatening to leave him behind on the International Space Station (ISS) over U.S. sanctions.
“Dmitry Rogozin, the head of Russia’s Space Agency and a close ally to Russian President Vladimir Putin, responded to Biden in a series of hostile tweets,” reports ABC News. “On Feb. 26, he posted a video in Russian that threatened to leave Vande Hei behind in space and detach Russia’s segment of the space station altogether.”
NASA has yet to comment on the threats, but have no fear; everything is okay because NASA is entirely focused on the key problem of the day: gender pronouns.
I’m not joking. On the same day ABC News reported about Russia’s threats to leave Vande Hei behind, NASA announced its new Gender Pronouns Project. We’re committed to supporting the right of every employee at NASA to be addressed by their preferred name and pronouns.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
