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: A Change is Gonna Come:


Thursday, February 23

I would suggest that you read this regarding what is happening in the UNGA currently.

https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202302/1286126.shtml


Thursday, February 23

Pepe Escobar tweets this:

Washington will NOT back down.

Plan A remains.

Dismember Russia.

Control exports of natural resources to China by land from Russia.

Control China’s access to the seas.

They will double down.

There’s NO Plan B.


Thursday, February 23

It cannot get worse .. Save us Great Spirit!  Oh man …. Boris Johnson for NATO Secretary General.


Thursday, February 23

So, the US is on hard attack against China, saying China is or will be or is considering supplying weapons to Russia.  So, now they are sanctioning Russia, and China .. just because.  US to announce new package of sanctions against Russia on February 24, sanctions will be introduced against Chinese companies as well – Nuland

The WSJ has a piece headed:  “U.S. to Expand Troop Presence in Taiwan for Training Against China”.  So, they say they accept that Taiwan is part of China, but now they extend their troop presence.


Dear heavens, NATO is letting the AI bot write Ukrainian propaganda:

@NATO
 Ukraine is hosting one of the great epics of this century ❝We are Harry Potter and William Wallace, the Na’vi and Han Solo. We’re escaping from Shawshank and blowing up the Death Star. We are fighting with the Harkonnens and challenging Thanos.❞
People are rotfl …. many memes are going to the NATO twitter – funny ones –  Mine is:  Oh Yes! you’re the Great Cornholio!   A few others for laughs .. We are the Brave Little Toaster. We are Chip and Dale, Rescue Rangers.  And another, Give me something for the cringe and let me die!  

Wednesday February 22,

I’ll spend my day analyzing the comments to Mr.Putin’s speech and post up a number of smaller articles.  The formal readout is now posted.

The US is holding ‘secret’ talks with Taiwan while a Taiwanese delegation visited China and said clearly they are not working for independence.

Outstanding in this point in our world, is real information, by that I mean formal read-outs, of Wang Yi’s visit to Moscow.  So far, it is all good and a true love fest that started with meetings with Patrushev and Lavrov is smiling.


Tuesday, February 21

The Putin Speech – The largest part was mostly internal Russian affairs, after a very emotional start.  I have most of it written down and will post it up when it is cleaned up.

Here are the bombshells:

❗️❗️The latest ground-based missile systems are being put on combat duty.

❗️❗️Russia has just suspended its participation in the strategic offensive arms treaty.

❗️❗️Russia is ready to resume nuclear weapons testing (if the US goes for similar tests).

We need a moment to understand those three statements.

And at the very same hour as Mr Putin’s address, China released their Global Security Initiative Concept Paper

It is almost as if Mr Putin said … This is what you’ve done … and China says … Now, here is how you fix it!


Monday, February 20

More earthquakes … A 6.3-magnitude earthquake rocked the border between Turkiye and Syria on Monday, according to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC).


Monday, February 20

Ukrainian Joke:  Biden left Ukraine quickly to avoid being conscripted into the military.


Monday, February 20

Let’s start a new Daily Chronicles (usually alive for 3 days or so) by taking a quick look at the US Rage Against the War Machine protest yesterday at the iconic Washington Lincoln Memorial venue that we all know from Vietnam war protests, even if we’ve seen it only in movies.

Billed as a ‘massive protest’, with a good and even spectacular line-up of speakers and a well-developed list of demands, I looked in from time to time on various live streams, only to find that I could not see more than 500 or so people at any one time and perhaps say 2 to 3 thousand at max.   Checking the various conservative sites, I did not see this protest advertised or talked about anywhere.  The only person with a real reach that spoke about it, was Tucker Carlson.   Compared with anti-war protests anywhere else in the world, this was a very small number of people.  This was supposed to be across political lines with one focus, Anti-War.

Most USAmericans like being at war, or they don’t care at all, are the only conclusions that I can come to for this moment.   While there were wonderful speakers, a lack of the historical and geo-political grounding for the Russian SMO was just painful to listen to.   There were also rumors in the run-up that the divisions between groups were very deep.  A change will not come from the American population but will be forced by geo-political and economic changes.

Jimmy Dore, originally a comedian has about the best grasp of the history and geo-politics:


Monday, February 20

Wang Yi has arrived in Russia and we are awaiting a very specific peace proposal from China.

From Peskov this morning:

Pres Putin May Meet with Wang Yi — Kremlin

Key points from Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov’s daily briefing:

▪️Russian-Moldovan relations are very tense with Chisinau slipping into anti-Russian hysteria, the lack of constructiveness harms relations.

▪️The Moldovan authorities should be careful in their assessments of the Transnistrian settlement, where Russia continues to fulfil its duties.

▪️Trust level in Pres Putin rise to 79% includes consolidation of society around the president at the current difficult moment.

So now we wait and see what change comes from Pres Putin’s speeches tomorrow after that spectacular approval rating.


Biden is supposed to be in Poland or on the way, and the rumor mill is strong that he will visit Kiev.  Some say that he is there now:  “Biden arrived in Kyiv. He held a meeting with Zelensky in the Mikhailovsky Cathedral.”  None of this can be confirmed at this time.

UPDATE: Yes indeed, Biden is blowing new air into their war .. As Long As It Takes (we’ve spoken about this narrative change already) and $500 more aid package in Support.  In addition, Japan is offering 5 Billion or so.

Members of the Knesset arrived at the same time, also offering loans.  And the head of the IMF.


This week all the pundits, commentators, and analysts will talk about the 1 year anniversary of the SMO.  Brian Berletic always does a good job and this video is very thorough.  Ukraine is out of weapons and the big talk from the EU and Europe in general about sending weapons and tanks and war planes seems to be only big talk – the west, one after the other, say they have none, not even what they promised.  Brian uses the word ‘unraveling’ and that is possibly the best description.  Are we at the point where Russia emaciated NATO and the Ukraine?  Are we there yet?

There is quite a bit of chaos — Poland wants to be the next proxy, Moldova and Transnistria area is heating up and the efforts to maintain a perpetual war are continuing.


Elena Panina from the Russtrat.ru Institute, posted this on her TG channel after the news broke of Biden’s visit to Kiev.  I wonder why?

July 30, 1969 – A surprise visit by US President Richard Nixon to the warring South Vietnam, where he is met by puppet President Nguyen Van Thieu (pictured) .

August 9, 1974 – Faced with imminent impeachment, Nixon becomes the only U.S. president to retire early.

April 21, 1975 – at the time of the collapse of the South Vietnamese regime, Nguyen Van Thieu accuses the United States of hysteria:

“You didn’t keep your promises! It’s inhumane! We’re fighting against Russia and China! You’re running away and making us do a job you couldn’t do. Are the words of an American reliable these days?!”

April 30, 1975 – Saigon falls and war ends. Nguyen Van Thieu flees to Taiwan in a C-118 transport aircraft.
