Millionaires are building doomsday bunkers in their mansions as World War 3 threatens America's shores.

Luxury bunker builders reported a spike in orders from wealthy celebrities and executives for doomsday bunkers in their homes. The bunkers are designed to withstand a nuclear blast.

One millionaire, Khloe Kardashian, showed off the fully stocked pantry inside her doomsday bunker in Calabasas, California.

The U.S. will stop paying Russia $75 million per day for oil and gas, Pres. Joe Biden announced Tuesday.

Biden announced the U.S. will end imports of gas and oil from Russia in a morning press conference from the White House on Tuesday.

"Today I am announcing the United States is targeting the main artery of Russia's economy," Biden said. "We're banning all imports of Russian oil and gas and energy. That means Russian oil will no longer be acceptable at U.S. ports and the American people will deal another powerful blow to Putin’s war machine."

Biden plans to sign an executive order later Tuesday, banning imports of oil, coal and liquefied natural gas.

Americans were surprised to learn that their tax dollars were financing Russia's war in the Ukraine.

Russia warned Biden that oil prices would soar to $300 per barrel if the U.S. banned gas and oil imports from Russia.

The Biden administration still refuses to restart construction on the Keystone XL Pipeline that runs from Canada to Texas. The U.S. president has asked Venezuela and Dubai to increase their oil production.

Before Biden's press conference, the U.K announced it would also end imports of Russian oil.

"We simply cannot rely on a supplier who explicitly threatens us," European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said in a press release.

Gas prices average $5 in California and $4 per gallon nationwide since Russia invaded Ukraine in February. Many states have seen gas prices spike 50 cents - the highest hike since 2008.

Crude oil prices are nearing $130 a barrel because of supply chain issues.

The news comes as White House advisers weigh sending Pres. Joe Biden to Saudi Arabia to beg for more oil production.

White House officials are in Venezuela to meet with President Nicolás Maduro's advisers to plead for Venezuela's oil to replace Russia's oil.

The U.S. government is reportedly paying Russia $75 million per day for oil.

On his first day in office, Biden shut down construction of the Keystone XL pipeline so the U.S. could purchase oil from Russia and the Middle East.

Construction on the Keystone XL pipeline began in the U.S. in 2012. The pipeline runs from Alberta, Canada to oil refineries in Illinois and Texas. It was only partly operational before Biden shut it down.

Republicans renewed their criticism of the Biden administration for relying on foreign oil rather than our own domestic oil production.

Former Vice President Mike Pence called on Biden to restart construction on the Keystone pipeline as energy prices soar.

Analysts are warning Americans to prepare for $7 gas prices on the West Coast and $6 per gallon nationally.

Over the weekend, news outlets reported that Africans were being denied seats on trains evacuating refugees from war-torn Ukraine.

Trains are evacuating refugees after Russia began a large-scale attack on Ukraine in the early hours of February 24.

At least one video shows African men left "stranded" on train platforms while Ukrainian women and children boarded the trains heading to Poland.

It seems a news outlet viewed one video and decided to manufacture a story to paint the Ukrainian people in a negative light during a crisis.

Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky banned men ages 18-60 from leaving Ukraine during the conflict. They must stay and defend their country. But foreigners are free to leave.

I logged into Getty Images to determine for myself if the stories of racism were true. Photos never lie, but people do.

Sure enough, I found dozens of Getty Images photos showing African men and women getting on and off the trains without resistance. They do not seem to be harassed and there is no hint of racism in any of the photos I saw.

I downloaded several of the Getty Images photos for this post. Many of the stories coming out of Ukraine are misleading and deceptive.

Below is the Getty Images caption for one of the photos.

I was unable to download the best photos (showing Africans smiling and taking photos on the trains) because those photos were exclusives and priced at $499.00 each.

WWIII may be over soon. China's President Xi Jinping urged Russia's President Vladimir Putin to negotiate a surrender with Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Zelensky (2nd from L) and Putin (2nd from R) are pictured with France's President Emanuel Macron (C) on December 9, 2019.

During a phone call on Friday, Xi urged Putin to resolve "the Ukraine crisis" through "talks" with Zelensky.

According to Bloomberg, the Kremlin announced Putin agreed to "organize negotiations" after Zelensky said he was ready to discuss Ukraine's "neutral status" and not push to join NATO.

However, Zelensky rejected Putin's offer to hold the meeting in Minsk, the capital of Belarus. Instead, he wants to hold the talks in Warsaw, Poland's capital.

The Kremlin also notes that Zelensky positioned missile systems in residential areas in big cities — a move that could result in high civilian casualties.

Earlier, a Russian official said that Moscow will only agree to talks if Ukraine's army surrenders.

"We're ready for negotiations at any time, as soon as the Ukrainian armed forces respond to our president's call, stop resistance and lay down their weapons," Lavrov said in the Russian capital.

Putin agreed to talks amid reports that over 450 of his soldiers were killed and over 800 Russian troops were captured by Ukraine forces.

Dozens of Ukraine civilians died during the conflict.

The White House reports Russian forces are on the verge of capturing Ukraine's capital, Kyiv, despite the United States and its allies levying huge sanctions on Russia.

The White House announced late Thursday that Russia's military forces were 20 miles outside of Ukraine's capital, Kyiv.

There are reports that 450 Russian soldiers were killed on Day 1 of WW3, and hundreds of military equipment were captured by Ukraine forces. However, Ukraine's losses are believed to be much worse.

The sanctions imposed by the U.S. on Russia have not slowed its attack on Ukraine and Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin's plan to capture the capital.

Early Friday, Ukrainian Pres. Volodymyr Zelensky announced, "Russia's sabotage forces have entered the capital. Me and my family are remaining."

Zelensky confirmed ballistic and cruise missiles hit Kyiv overnight, and he wondered aloud whether help was on the way.

"We are left alone in defense of our state. Who is ready to fight with us? I don't see it. Who is ready to guarantee Ukraine's accession to Nato? Everyone is afraid. I asked the 27 leaders of Europe whether Ukraine should be in Nato. I asked directly. They are all afraid. And we are not afraid."

During a press conference from the White House on Thursday, Biden said, "Our forces are not and will not be engaged in a conflict with Russia in Ukraine. Our forces are not going to Europe to fight in Ukraine."

When Biden first took office in Jan. 2021, he removed sanctions imposed on Russia by the outgoing Trump administration. That opened the door for Putin's military action in Ukraine.

Former Pres. Donald Trump wrote an executive order imposing sanctions on any company that helped Russia's state-owned gas company, Gazprom.

Biden removed those sanctions and handed Russia back its pipeline (while simultaneously shutting down America's oil pipeline). Biden allowed Russia to extend its pipeline into Eastern Europe, and along with it, the power to invade Eastern Europe.

In the face of massive military losses, Putin offered to begin to negotiating "terms of surrender" for Ukraine.

"We are not afraid to talk to Russia," said Zelensky in response. "We are not afraid to talk about security guarantees for our state. We are not afraid to talk about neutral status. But what security guarantees will we have? But which countries will give them?"

Putin said the "final straw" that led to the invasion of Ukraine was Zelensky's announcement of his intent to restore Ukraine as a nuclear power.

Meanwhile, the world is watching to see if China will invade Taiwan.

The world is reacting to Russia invading Ukraine as Russian President Vladimir Putin orders his troops over the border into eastern Ukraine.

A senior Biden administration official told reporters Monday, "In the last hour, we've seen Russia order troops to deploy into the [Donetsk and Luhansk regions] for so-called peacekeeping functions."

The US ambassador to the United Nations says Putin's claims about "peacekeeping" forces on the ground are "nonsense".

Putin is pictured during a meeting at Moscow's Kremlin on Feb. 22.

US Pres. Joe Biden signed an executive order imposing sanctions on Russia if the invasion into Ukraine continued.

"To be clear: these measures are separate from and would be in addition to the swift and severe economic measures we have been preparing in coordination with Allies and partners should Russia further invade Ukraine," White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Monday.

She said Biden placed a secure phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to "reaffirm the commitment of the United States to Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity" and "strongly condemned" Putin's recognition of Ukraine's rebel republics of Luhansk and Donetsk as independent.

Psaki said Biden had spoken with Zelensky for about 35 minutes — after Putin recognized the two regions as independent regions that he can lay claim to.

The two regions — collectively known as the Donbas — are in eastern Ukraine, near the border with Russia.

The Biden administration previously warned Putin that formally recognizing Luhansk and Donetsk as "independent" would be met with a "swift and firm response" from the U.S. and its allies.

The Biden administration official "made clear that [Putin] views Ukraine historically as part of Russia... This was a speech to the Russian people to justify war," he said.

A date has been set for World War III. Now is the time to plan for your physical, mental, and financial well-being amid the ongoing war.

Unfortunately, it seems that World War III is imminent. On Monday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Russia will invade his country on Wednesday, February 16.

American Pres. Joe Biden spoke with Zelenskyy on Sunday, to guarantee the safety of the Ukrainian people. Biden told him that America "would respond swiftly and decisively, together with its Allies and partners, to any further Russian aggression against Ukraine," according to the White House.

In addition to NATO's allies that are already in Poland, Biden sent more than 3,000 troops to Poland to amass along the Ukraine border in the event of an invasion by Russia.

If Russia invades Ukraine, the U.S. will have to take action — then China will invade Taiwan — and World War III will begin.

Below are just a few tips to survive World War III.

1. Exercise

When the body is stressed its demands increase. Exercise is an excellent stress reliever. Exercise reduces the body's stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. So exercise at least 20 minutes a day to relieve stress.

2. Stock up on non-perishable foods

War means high prices, including gasoline and utilities. There may be rolling blackouts in your area to preserve electricity. High gas prices means higher fuel and diesel prices for truckers who we depend on to deliver food to grocery stores. Stock up on non-perishable food items such as:

  • Canned tuna, salmon and sardines
  • Almonds and almond butter
  • Cashews/cashew butter and other dried nuts
  • Canned/boxed coconut and almond milk
  • Olive oil, coconut oil and other oils
  • Beef/turkey jerky
  • Protein bars
  • Dried beans, lentils and peas
  • Whole grains
  • Dried berries
  • Pickled vegetables in jars
  • Unsweetened canned fruits
  • Organic canned soups that are low in sodium

Additionally, stock up on condiments such as raw honey, dried herbs and spices (all types), maple syrup, hot sauce, mustard, mustards, vinegars (apple cider, balsamic and white), low sugar BBQ sauce, etc.

3. Learn how to shoot a weapon

Purchase a firearm today and learn how to shoot it. There are firearms training schools in your area. You can also go to a target shooting facility to learn how to safely operate your weapon.

4. Connect with long lost friends off the Internet

The Internet will go offline during a war. You can't expect the phone service to work and the U.S. mail is not an option. Develop a network of friends who live within miles of you and your loved ones so you can get word to them quickly.

5. Hoard gold and silver

Forget about hoarding cash. Money is worthless during times of war. Gold, silver and copper can be used to barter for food and essential items. It's also a good idea to purchase and hoard items that you can use to barter with such as camping equipment, wood burning stoves, gas masks in adult and children's sizes, and other survival gear, matches, lighters, oil, reading glasses, binoculars, socks, shoes, underwear, live stock such as chickens and goats, etc.
