U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), a combat veteran and member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, joined Bret Baier on Fox News Sunday afternoon to discuss Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and to continue her calls for more action from the Biden administration to arm Ukraine, punish Putin, and promote American energy independence. Ernst also spoke on Governor Reynolds’ upcoming response to President Biden’s State of the Union.


On her experience in Ukraine and action needed from the Biden administration:

“I spent some time in Ukraine while it was part of the Soviet Union in 1989, and what I learned from the Ukrainians at that point was they wanted to be free—that remains true today—Ukrainians want to be free. And what we see—this aggression shown by Russia, by Vladamir Putin, it is absolutely unacceptable and it should be unacceptable across the world stage. We have to do more to provide lethal aid to the Ukrainians, we need to cut of Russian energy sources, we need to become energy independent, and we need to make sure we are doing absolutely everything we can to allow the Ukrainians freedom and democracy.

On Putin ordering Russian nuclear forces on high alert:

This would be a catastrophe and it would be the end of the Russian Federation. This type of action—going to nuclear war—would absolutely not be tolerated by anyone around this globe. And we certainly need to hear President Biden speak out against these types of actions. Vladamir Putin has gone a step too far making these threats, and we need our president to step up and be a leader, not a follower, but a leader and decry these types of announcements by Vladamir Putin. But again, this would truly be the end of the Russian Federation as the rest of the world would step up and destroy him.”

On the importance of regaining American energy independence:

“We have decreased American independence when it comes to our fuel sources and instead become much more reliant upon Russia. And now we see the United States negotiating with Iran and offering to lift sanctions on Iran as we work through a new nuclear agreement with them. This is ludicrous. This president and the climate alarmists that are out there—they need to take that and move a different direction. We should be producing our own energy here in the United States of America, providing for American jobs, driving down energy prices right here at home, and not relying on our near peer adversaries like Russia and Iran…energy security is national security.


On Governor Reynolds giving the Republican response to President Biden’s State of the Union:

I am so proud of our governor and our wonderful state of Iowa. Kim Reynolds has been a true patriot and a leader through so many difficult challenges. She is striving to of course lower taxes for Iowans, make sure that our teachers and our students and our families have a path forward through COVID. She’s done an admirable job there. She has opened our economy and was one of the first state leaders to do that during COVID-19, and I am just very thankful that she has the opportunity to highlight Iowa and push back on this disastrous Biden administration.

  1. Why the rush to war with Russia, Joni?

    Germany is heavily dependent on Russian gas and coal, thus any attempt to sanction Russia will boomerang badly. Likewise, closing off Russia from access to SWIFT means the flow of gas and coal ceases immediately as Germany will be unable to pay Russia for the energy. And Germany can’t make up for the energy shortfall with their own windmills and solarfarms. Too bad Angela Merkel shut down her nuclear power plants before having secured her independent energy needs. And it’s still winter.

    Thus, all talk of sanctioning Russia is just hot air and virtue signaling.

    Besides, Putin is attempting to clean out the corruption in Ukraine. Corruption such as child and sex trafficking as well as American politicians grifting off Ukraine’s energy sectors. Politicians like Joe Biden via Hunter; Nancy Pelosi via her son; John Kerry via his stepson and even Mitt Romney via his national security advisor Coffey Black, just to name a few politicians.

    But probably the biggest concern for Putin are the US funded biolabs in Ukraine.
    The existence of US Congressional/internationally funded Biolabs in Ukraine (and around the world), researching and developing pathogens and viruses, biting insect, bat, and monkey delivery, human genetic engineering, and associated biological outbreaks in Ukraine and elsewhere (as happened in Wuhan) are well documented. As of 2018 there were 11 known bio-laboratories located in Ukraine (map image below), in 2015 there were 39.

    Congress. Pentagon. CIA. DARPA. CDC. Private Contractors.

    Deeply sourced/hyperlinked investigative journalist pieces from Bulgarian journalist/researcher Dilyana Gaytandzhieva linked below ( are crucial:

    “Besides gene editing in insects and in the viruses they transmit, the Pentagon wants to engineer humans as well. DARPA Advanced Tools for Mammalian Genome Engineering Project seeks to create a biological platform inside the human body, using it to deliver new genetic information, and thus altering humans at the DNA level.

    DARPA wants to insert an additional 47th artificial chromosome into human cells. This chromosome will deliver new genes that will be used for engineering the human body. SynPloid Biotek LLC has been awarded two contracts under the program totaling $1.1 million (2015-2016 – $ 100,600 for the first phase of the research; 2015-2017 – $ 999,300 for work which is not specified in the federal contracts registry. The company has only two employees and no previous record on bio-research.”

    High-level clarity:

    2013 –

    2015 –

    2020 –

    “Biowarfare scientists using diplomatic cover test man-made viruses at Pentagon bio laboratories in 25 countries across the world. These US bio-laboratories are funded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) under a $ 2.1 billion military program– Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP), and are located in former Soviet Union countries such as Georgia and Ukraine, the Middle East, South East Asia and Africa.”

    2018 – Pentagon Bio Weapons (scroll down to Ukraine):

    2020 – Data leak from the Pentagon biolaboratory in Georgia

    2022 – Biological Human Experiments in Ukraine:

    Per the 2015 Congressional Research Services Report, the Evolution of Cooperative Threat Reduction (CTR): Issues for Congress, appears to corroborate these bio-laboratories and gain-of-function interests.

    “The CTR program has built a secure Central Reference Laboratories (CRL) for pathogen collections in Ukraine and Kazakhstan, and is constructing a CRL in Azerbaijan. Currently, the CTR program has completed upgrades at 39 “Secured Labs” in Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine. DOD continues to support upgrades and training at these facilities.”

    p. 39:
    Did we not learn anything from the Fauci funded lab in Wuhan, China? Which begs the question, since Fauci and Gates were warning there would be another pandemic coming soon; was Ukraine supposed to be next to have a virus “escape” a lab?

    We are so done with WEF clowns and their NWO elitism. Nuremberg 2.0 can’t come soon enough.
