    President Joe Biden on Thursday declared that the U.S. faces a “national emergency” over an array of malign actions from Russia, imposing new sanctions on the Russian government and expelling 10 Kremlin diplomats from the United States.

    The moves are part of an intensifying U.S. campaign to punish Moscow over its attempted interference in the 2020 U.S. election, its cyberespionage campaign known as SolarWinds, and its occupation of Crimea. They are sure to escalate already rising tensions between the two nations and are likely to be met with some Russian reprisal, including the expulsion of U.S. diplomats. The moves also come as Russia has amassed military forces near its border with Ukraine, alarming the international community.

    The new penalties also follow a Tuesday conversation between Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin, during which Biden proposed the two meet in a third country in the coming months. A senior administration official told reporters on Thursday that Biden previewed the U.S. actions to Putin during their call, and that Russia—both publicly and “in other formats”—has indicated that they intend to respond.

    “The U.S. of course reserves the right to take further action as necessary,” the official said. “But our view is that the best course forward at this point would be for the U.S. and Russia both to get off the ladder of escalation and find a stable way forward.”

    At the same time, a large part of electorate sees entirely different kind of 'election interference' and believes that election was stolen from Trump.

    The U.S. is driving this escalation because the U.S. really, really doesn't want escalation.

    Jesus. Can the government no longer say anything without insulting my intelligence in the process?

    Yeah, on the surface this federal government maintains just enough differences from the novel 1984 to convince the stupid that we aren't living the book. The Ministry of Truth is dedicated to lies, including the lie that it's a number of private companies, not a bloc marching in lockstep in the CIA's vest pocket. They don't even pretend to have a Ministry of Peace any more, though they still try to pretend the War Department is about "defense".

    But it has several departments with "Intelligence" in their names, and every last one of them was created to do stupid stuff.
