The Daily Chronicles are snippets of the most important news across the world for this and each day as it rolls in. Kindly also use it as an open thread.
This is the guy that started the big talk about vaccines .. i.e., Operation Warp Speed.
This is the guy that took out General Qassem Soleimani, and stood up saying .. He was a very bad man – as if he is a judge, jury, and executioner.
This is the guy that commented on the killing of Khashoggi, saying .. He does not believe the Saudi’s did it.
This is the man who had dinner with the Chinese leader, and halfway through the dinner, over ‘beautiful chocolate cake’ announced a missile strike on Syria, only to say ‘mission accomplished’ but we will take their oil.
And so we can go onwards.
This man, a day or two ago, hinted at a very huge reveal, a big announcement, today. He did reveal. This is his reveal.
As far as I can see, this is not a joke. Go git’em here: https://collecttrumpcards.com/ (I’m still deciding whether I must howl with laughter, or remain in stunned silence!)
Our world is busy, but nothing today is critical. Russia is continuing to make slow progress on the Ukrainian front. Every analyst has a different assessment as to Russia’s next big move. The US and the collective west are still supplying weapons. The UK came clean and said they have troops covertly (Royal Marines) in the Ukraine (which we all knew). The change in financial structuring of most of our earth is moving forward step by step. The US is still trying to collect friends and now it is Kosovo that signed some documents to be allowed to the EU which is crumbling. Some analysts suggest that a 2nd front has been opened. Iran is belly-aching somewhat because of the China / Saudi deals. The US is threatening everybody. Europe is sliding bit by bit into some type of slough of despond and I don’t see them recovering any time soon and of course, the US will only be able to continue on its path for a short time as Europe will be clapped out as a handy zone for plunder. Israel is plundering Palestine and the people, to the extent that one gets nauseous.
We hope for a quiet period before the next storm hits.
In our neck of the woods, all eyes are still on Peru.
Half of Peru now brought to a standstill by anti-coup protests. The police, military, and political elites have opened a box they never knew existed.
Foreign media will deliberately ignore this after having celebrated the coup against Castillo. https://t.co/FixWRXBMvA

Update: We’ve just heard that the military has been instructed to stop the protests. This is very bad news.
It took one last overreach, one final president impeached, for Peru to flame up with the community on the streets and in bloody violence. The junta thought they would get away with neoliberal approaches forever. Yet, the Latin American ethos is now changing.
Protesters in Peru have 3 demands: 1) Closure of the right-wing congress 2) New elections 3) Free Pedro Castillo
Repression against demonstrators continues at this hour in the Center of Lima, Avenida Abancay and there have been arrests.

Peru’s former president calls successor “usurper,” as seven people die in violent countrywide protests
This is a must watch! (I’m not a Tucker Carlson fan at all). If you still had questions about Covid and Vax, this should answer them all. This is what proper research looks like!
At 2PM Brasília time @LulaOficial and VP-elect Alckmin will receive their electoral diplomas from the Superior Electoral Court, hereby closing the window to file fraud charges. The ceremony represents a victory celebration and the last hurdle for them to take office on Jan. 1
I am not sure what is happening in Serbia / Kosovo.
Peskov noted that Serbian President Vucic has not asked Putin for help on the situation in Kosovo, but Russia is in favor of making sure rights of Kosovo Serbs are ensured.
RT has this report. What seems to be filtering through is that another historical pain point is being pressurized by the usual suspects with agreements not being honored.
Police in Peru repress citizens as protests continue around the country. In Lima, demonstrators were gassed while demanding immediate elections, a Constituent Assembly and the closure of the Congress. Passersby were also affected. 📸 @JuanZapata108 / @WaykaPeru pic.twitter.com/41SRgtDJLO

On Brazil and the whipping up of anti-Lula sentiment, mostly among the evangelicals. Note the Brian Mier tweet on this piece: https://thesakeris.global/2022/12/08/latin-american-coups/
This is funny. The whipping up of anti-Lula sentiment has reached clown world.
Much of the disinformation originates from Bolsonaro allies like Congresswoman Carla “Super-Karen” Zambelli, who called for the violent overthrow of the government and announced the International Criminal Court was in Brazil to arrest Lula before fleeing the country last week.
It’s gotten so silly that people are now making their own rumors just to troll the Bolsominions. @felipeneto made up a fictitious character with a prank name – “General Benjamin Arrola” & announced he was about to release “proof of election fraud.”
When MMA legend Victor Belfort failed to fact check this information and shared it on his social media yesterday it viralized. He even included a photo of the imaginary general.
Oh deary me! The nuts have taken over the asylum!
Dmitry Medvedev today:
Pseudo-Ukrainian rabid mongrels with Russian surnames, choking on their toxic saliva, declare that their enemy is located within the borders of Russia, from the West to Vladivostok. Rabies has no cure.
It is much more difficult for us – our enemy has dug in not only in the Kyiv province of our native Little Russia. It’s in Europe, North America, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and a whole host of other contemporary Nazi-sworn places.
Therefore, we are increasing the production of the most powerful means of destruction. Including those based on “new principles”.
“New principles”? Are these like “military/technical” measures? I am not sure if he is talking about a change in the Russian Nuclear Doctrine or a technical breakthrough.
Mr Putin set the tone here:
THE NEW PRINCIPLES
The “new principles” concept mentioned above by Dmitry Medvedev comes directly from Vladimir Putin’s commentary on Angela Merkel’s confession on how they misled everyone on the Minsk Agreements.
She basically admitted that the agreements were made in order to give Ukraine some time to build the military strength and accumulate weapons for the future assault on Donbass and Russia. Poroshenko also said this months earlier, but then again, he is not reliable on face value. But Merkel in her position as Chancellor, has now proven her, and her country’s unreliability.
Vladimir Putin concluded that this was an unexpected and dirty trick.
“Just how would we be able to come to any agreements in the future? What kind of guarantees would we have?
Honestly, I didn’t expect this.
It is now perfectly clear that we have acted on time and made the only right choice by starting the SMO and preventing the major assault on us that was being prepared during the last years.”
He also mentioned that trust, by that he means diplomatic trust, capability of staying with one’s agreements, is reaching zero, and continued:
“Our nuclear doctrine implies that in case we are attacked we will use strategic nuclear weapons in our defense. But in the view of the last events we might just use some “new principles”.
Other Russian diplomats (specifically Maria Zakharova) stated that the Angela Merkel statements opens a case for a tribunal, France, Germany, and of course the Ukraine. Bear in mind that the Minsk agreements were international law, and Merkel, cool as a cucumber, confessed that nobody was interested in complying, they only signed them to buy time for the Ukraine to become stronger militarily.
Supporters of Peru’s recently ousted president Pedro Castillo continued to rally in Lima against the impeachment of the now-detained ex-leader. Police forces were seen attempting to disperse the crowds by firing tear gas.
Weakness personified: This is the US Ambassador to China, after the stunning China/Arab summits, plays human rights cards on three issues that have been thoroughly debunked.
The U.S. calls on Beijing to stop its genocide in Xinjiang, repressive policies in Tibet and dismantling of Hong Kong’s autonomy. See my statement: https://t.co/Fz2GG4xdLk

In the meantime: “At the invitation of the UAE and Iran governments, Chinese Vice Premier Hu Chunhua will visit the UAE and Iran from December 10th to 14th.”
I don’t think I mentioned anywhere that we will see Belt and Road coming to the forefront in the new year. These are all Belt and Road agreements. During Xi’s visit Saudi Arabia agreed to “harmonise” Vision 2030 – their development agenda – with China’s Belt and Road Initiative.
