Marie Yovanovitch, former US Ambassador to Ukraine, was born in Canada. Fiona Hill, former senior director for Europe and Russia at the US National Security Council, was born in England. Alexander Vindman, former Director of European Affairs for the United States National Security Council, was born in Ukraine. These three people came from elsewhere in this country and defended the United States against its foreign and domestic enemies under pressure from the Republicans.
Marjorie Taylor Greene, Republican U.S. Representative from Georgia, was born in the state of Georgia. Lauren Boebert, Republican U.S. Representative from Colorado, was born in Florida. Madison Cawthorn, Republican U.S. Representative from North Carolina, was born in North Carolina. The latter three have used First Amendment freedom of speech to undermine the United States’ standing nationally and around the world.
Wouldn’t it be nice if those representing the United States in Congress actually supported the United States, especially during the Russian government’s immoral invasion of Ukraine.
