(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Russia has taken steps to ban nearly 1,000 Americans from entering the country, putting them on a “black list.” The list, released on Saturday, includes Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden along with a slew of other political leaders with varying political affiliations.
The list of 963 names is a response to US sanctions placed on Moscow because of Russia’s aggression towards Ukraine, the USA Today reported.
The black list was released the same week the US Senate passed and Joe Biden signed into law a $40 billion military and humanitarian package for Ukraine.
The US really ought to stay out of this conflict rather than send $40 billion to another country when Americans are hurting from record inflation, skyrocketing gas prices and a brewing housing crisis.
Of course, the actions taken by the US against Russia have only led to hostility from Russia.
“We emphasize that the hostile actions undertaken by Washington, which boomerang at the United States itself, will continue to receive due retaliation,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
“Russian counter-sanctions are forced and aimed at forcing the ruling American regime, which is trying to impose a neocolonial ‘rules-based peace order’ on the rest of the world, to change its behavior by recognizing the new geopolitical realities,” it said.
The ministry also accused U.S. government officials of stirring “Russophobia.”
“Russia is not seeking confrontation and is open to honest, mutual-respectful dialogue, separating the American people, who consistently enjoy our respect, from the US authorities who fuel Russophobia, and those who serve them. These are the people who are included in the Russian ‘blacklist,’” it said.
The statement is not wrong. Democrats have, indeed, been stirring up “Russophobia” for years now and really ramped up their propaganda against Russia in 2016 when President Trump ran for office. The whole Russia-collusion hoax was a set-up from the beginning but even after the election, Democrats insisted that Russia worked to steal the US election.
These allegations are false and have always been false. Can you blame Russia for being upset about it? Meanwhile, the Democrats are happy to ignore China who easily poses the greatest threat to the US and our way of life, of any country in the world.
Other members of the Biden regime who made the Russian blacklist include Kamala Harris, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and former White House press secretary Jen Psaki.

Other political figures banned from Russia are House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy along with Republican Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA), Matt Gaetz (FL), and Paul Gosar (AZ) and Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ilhan Omar (MN), and Ayanna Pressley (MA).
From the Senate, Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham (SC), Ted Cruz (TX), and Marco Rubio (FL) also made the list, as did Democratic Sens. Amy Klobuchar (MN), Mark Warner (VA), and Dianne Feinstein (CA).
Former Secretary of State and two-time presidential nominee failure Hillary Clinton has also been banned from entering Russia so no doubt she feels proud to have not drifted off into complete obscurity yet.
Worth noting, former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Donald Trump were not on the list but Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was banned.
President Donald J. Trump:
“Breaking News: Russia just sanctioned Joe Biden. While that is a terrible thing, in so many ways, perhaps it will now be explained why the Biden family received 3.5 million dollars from the very wealthy former Mayor of Moscow’s wife… pic.twitter.com/81gntDOQL9

Outside of the Washington swamp, 84-year-old actor Morgan Freeman has also been barred. Russia cited a 2017 video message in which Freeman declared Russia had interfered with the 2016 election and that “we are at war.”
Russia asserts that Freeman called “for a fight against our country” in the video. At the very least Freeman was definitely spreading disinformation about Russia.
“We have been attacked,” the actor said at the time, according to The Washington Post. “We are at war.”
The blacklist is significant in the sense that Russia is putting out who they believe is guilty of spreading “Russophobia” but at the end of the day, we highly doubt anyone on the list had any travel plans to Russia in the foreseeable future.
