Daily Chronicles

The Daily Chronicles are snippets of the most important news across the world for this and each day as it rolls in – as such, this thread is non-structured with the latest news on top. The rough theme for this Daily Chronicles:  Swimming through a sea of misinformation and psyops,

Note, The Hearty Salon is open now for further commentary. You don’t have to wait for anyone to start a topic, please feel free to start your own.

As you will see taking a look at the URL on your browser, we now are functioning with the name of GlobalSouth.co.  I am glad this techie finagle is done and dusted.  There are a few small hangovers but we’re working through them.

If we can take this as face value, it is good news:

Armenia Sends Azerbaijan Peace Deal Draft

Armenia has drawn up a draft peace agreement with Azerbaijan and sent it to Baku, as well as to the OSCE Minsk Group member states, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced at a government meeting on Thursday.

Pepe Escobar on his TG channel:  “Please check my thread of 8 tweets on Sy Hersh’s killer interview to the Berliner Zeitung.”

Here they are:

Sy Hersh’s killer interview to the Berliner Zeitung (1) I’ll be posting key take aways. “The point is that… the President of the United States would rather have Germany freeze than have Germany potentially stop supporting Ukraine.”

(2) “They met in a very secret office (…) for a secret outside group of advisors called the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board. I mentioned that to signal to people in the White House that I had information.”

(3) “It was the CIA (…) National Security Agency (…) State Department (…) Treasury Department (…) Joint Chiefs of Staff. I don’t want to go into any more detail here (…) because I have to protect my source.”

(4) “At the last minute, the White House got nervous. The president said he was afraid to do it. He changed his mind (…) we actually had to turn to other intelligence agencies, which I deliberately didn’t write about.”

(5) “Shortly after the attack (…) there was a lot of anger among those involved about the operation (…) That is one of the reasons I learned so much. People in America and Europe who build pipelines know what happened.”

(6) “In the White House (…) they were always obsessed with reelection, they wanted to win the war (…) we have gotten ourselves into something that is not going to work,the war is not going to end well for this government.”

(7) “How could I talk about my source? I have written many stories based on unnamed sources. If I named anyone, they would be fired or, even worse, imprisoned.”

(8) “Even this community [the CIA] is appalled that Biden has decided to expose Europe to the cold in order to support a war that he is not going to win. That, to me, is nefarious.”

FM Lavrov addressed the State Duma in a major speech.  He talks about many things, but one stood out for me, and this is a new Foreign Policy Concept which he says will be ending the west’s monopoly.  I want to wait for the formal transcript before commenting on this address as it is always better to see these in perspective and as a whole.   Tass has some details. https://tass.com/politics/1576761

In addition, he says there are be high-level talks Russia, China on the horizon.  According to the Russian top diplomat, the two counties will continue to discuss the configuration of international relations based on the documents signed in recent years.  Again Tass explains:  https://tass.com/politics/1576891

In addition, we’ve had rumors about a new military doctrine.  Mr Putin will address the State Duma in a major address on the 21st and thereafter he will hold his usual annual 4-hour or so marathon speech and Q&A with the Russian population.

It is clear that the bell that I hear is not my imagination (it is really but in a manner of speaking) and next week will be major in terms of geopolitical actions and affairs.   Now we wait for Mr Lavrov’s formal transcript of his address which I will post immediately.


Overall comment – Wednesday, February 15

All the world’s poles or bases of power are shifting and with all the destabilization in so many countries, my intuitive sense is that some power somewhere hammered a great big bell and the reverberations are ringing everywhere.  There is almost nowhere where peace and love reign (except where we live – all is quiet – and no doubt, we can find many hamlets and inlets that are at peace).  Overall, chaos reigns.   It is the time when the collective west has confused itself to such an extent, that it can only produce incoherent babble.  The time of creating chaos!

There is only one stable point.  Every early morning, the RuMod announces:  “The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation continue the special military operation”.  That must be the bell that I envision.

Ukraine has no more weapons or bullets left.  Nato and the UN are lying like little doglets (a combination of piglets and puppies that are not housetrained and piddling all over the house).  Read Larry Johnston, who says Public Display of the Gross Incompetence of U.S. and NATO Military Leaders

And note:  NATO will be at war on TWO FRONTS. A “high-intensity so-called Article 5 conflict”. And “an out-of-area, non-Article 5 event.”   Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, Zip-a-Dee-hey!   Great Humiliating Butt-Kickings-Incoming.  We can call it even now The Great Humiliation.

The Russian Foreign office is not accrediting journos from unfriendly countries for briefings any longer (Maria must have lost it lol).  They can fight for informational crumbs from Russia.  These ones will also not be accredited as journos for Mr Putin’s major meetings coming up.

War is Peace

Freedom is Slavery

Ignorance is Strength

says “The Party,” from the “Ministry of Truth”

It’s been updated today!

Russia is Cruel

Ukraine is peaceful

Barbaric Russia attacks civilians

Listen for yourselves.  The cringe is unbelievable and the gaslighting is top form!    Training, Maintaining, Sustaining …. Ukraine is dynamic and all of them, all 54 countries will synchronize like everything and uphold the principles of freedom.  Yet, this is the 3rd army that they are trying to bring together and Ukrainians are still dying like flies.   Yet, there is +- 200 countries in this world and all the rest told you NO!  Questions .. Where the balloon at?

Lira says:  “The bullshit piles up so fast, you need wings to stay above it.”

OK, let’s get real!

China Welcomes Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in First Visit. Beijing announced it was hopeful of expanding its strategic partnership and Raisi told the China’s People’s Daily that both nations face ‘violent’ measures and ‘unjust’ sanctions.

This will turn out to be a very important 3-day State Visit.

Today, on what people celebrate as Valentine’s day, a day of romance and love, we will be treated to the 10th Meeting of Ukraine Contact Group at Germany’s Ramstein Base. The Financial Times claims that it could be the moment the US greenlights the supply of fighter jets to Ukraine. (The previous major discussion was large numbers of tanks to Ukraine – are they there yet? Not really.)

Are we watching a NATO gaslighting and fairy story?

We have to continue debunking the solid stream of misinformation coming from right-wing sources in Brazil. The latest was a number of clear statements in their social media and formal press, that Brazil is warning their citizens in Russia and Belarus to immediately leave those areas. Of course, the give-away is that no reason is given. The Brazilian Foreign Ministry denied those statements.

“The information that the Foreign Ministry, through the Brazilian Embassy in Moscow, on February 13, 2023, recommended that Brazilian citizens leave the territory of the Russian Federation does not correspond to reality,” the agency said in response to a request. The diplomatic department also clarified that official information of a relevant nature can be published only on the consular portal of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country, in press messages, as well as on the Internet pages of foreign diplomatic missions of the South American Republic and in their social media accounts.”

There is an international outcry for the US to lift sanctions on Syria. The Chinese Spokesperson this morning:

We urge the US to put aside its geopolitical calculations, immediately lift its unilateral sanctions on Syria and put an end to the ongoing humanitarian disasters it has made in Syria.

The US government should put an immediate end to its unilateral sanctions on Syria, rather than some kind of symbolic partial and temporary exemptions.

This Chinese Foreign Office, at their regular Q&A with the world press this morning, was clown world from the western press.  Take a look.  CNBC, Bloomberg, NBC hyping the balloon issue to the extent that they are not asking any questions outside that one issue.  https://www.fmprc.gov.cn/mfa_eng/xwfw_665399/s2510_665401/202302/t20230213_11024546.html

Makes me think of decoys and chaff.

Psyops after spy balloons:  Pepe says:  “When everything is going totally downhill, run the UFO psy ops all over again.

Wag The Dog has now become Wag The UFO.

And for the west, everything Europe and Ukraine is going totally downhill.  For the east, we have another finagle incoming and I will write about that. For this moment, the lights around Zelensky is dimming with more and more people speaking out.

The former Italian prime minister, the leader of the ruling coalition of the party “Forward, Italy” Silvio Berlusconi criticized the actions of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky in the Donbass.

“I wouldn’t talk to Zelensky if I were prime minister, I wouldn’t go, because we see the ruin of his country and the extermination of soldiers and residents. It was enough to stop the attacks on the two autonomous republics of Donbass, and what is happening would never have happened, so I very negatively assess the actions of this gentleman,” Berlusconi told reporters on Sunday after voting in the elections of regional authorities in his native region of Lombardy.

There are reports that the proposal from the WHO for a Pandemic Treaty failed.  I said this all along .. there is no way on God’s earth that sane governments would sign it and there are still sane governments left.  I have not followed through on the detail.

Briefing of Dmitry Peskov contains confirmation that militants are specifically trained for terrorist action in Russia and the region at large.   ISIS types and their sons and daughters are being mobilized again.

Russian intelligence says the U.S. is recruiting Islamic State & Al Qaeda affiliated militants to conduct terror attacks in Russia & neighboring states, including 60 terrorists with combat experience in the Middle East who are now being trained at the U.S. base in Syria.

According to the reports, recruitment is focused on people born in Central Asia and Russia’s North Caucasus and includes potential Russian diplomats, state officials, military and and security personnel among possible targets.

This isn’t the first time reports have been made regarding the training of radical groups by the U.S., as they’ve done so in Syria, Afghanistan and many other regions. The 2019 Rand report also outlined NATO’s aim to destabilize the caucus regions & allies to attack Russia.


Monday, February 13

Annalena Baerbock, the German Foreign Minister now admits that she ‘made a mistake’ in her January statement that Europe was “at war against Russia”.  She needs to be fired because an FM who mistakes war for peace should not be in a position of leadership.

On Syria and earthquake:  It is another human tragedy of tremendous proportions being created by the US and its vassals in front of our eyes.   The so-called 180 day loosening of the sanctions rules, is simply their old wine already vinegar, that they present in a new wineskin.

The Syrian Foreign Affairs Ministry explained that the U.S. Treasury Department’s latest decision is a copy of previous documents that only seek to create a false impression by stipulating alleged exemptions for humanitarian purposes.  “The facts on the ground, however, prove otherwise,” Syrian diplomacy said, noting that Washington still upholds its arbitrary sanctions.

The propaganda that Syria is not letting aid through, is nonsense.  Syria is not allowing aid to militants because the militants use that aid to resell and no aid is given.  Vanessa Beeley is still writing on this, and the message is becoming clearer for the rest of the world but it is written in blood of the Syrian people.

The WHO eventually got themselves together to send some emergency aid. https://www.telesurenglish.net/news/WHO-Sends-Health-Supplies-To-Quake-hit-Turkiye-and-Syria-20230210-0018.html

A whole mess of Lula and Brazil fake news is presenting itself.  The main point is that Lula is forcing the children under the family relief system to take Covid jabs.  It is everywhere.  Brain Meir tells us the real story.  You can follow the long tweet stream here, I’ve just summarized:  https://twitter.com/BrianMteleSUR/status/1624761078692384770

In Brazil, which has a universal public health system, all children are legally required to take 26 vaccines by age 4 for diseases that kill children like Yellow Fever & TB.   Covid 19 is optional. +  Bolsa Familia requires parents to prove that their children are in school and have had their legally required vaccinations. The school requirement was introduced to reduce child labor and it worked. The vaccination requirement is a public health issue.
