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. 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. The Covid disaster is not over yet and there will be years of research coming out still.

The previous Daily Chronicles contained shocks and these are still continuing. The massive and destructive earthquakes in Syria and Tukiye, Roger Waters talking at the UN, and the Chinese weather balloon that is in the process of being used as a red flag to a Chinese bull. Yesterday we also saw the Sy Hersch piece on how the US took out the Nord Stream pipelines,(not perfectly done but information that is widely spread). Tucker Carlson had Aaron Matte on his show and I’m sure there are many USAians that are shocked, and just as many who rejoice.

It is a tremendously busy news environment on the whole.  Everyone wants to say something and it is difficult to sort out the sheep from the goats.

We continue with shocks.

This is who has delivered aid to Syria and we have to add Iran with truckloads of aid.


Saturday, February 11

Please follow Vanessa Beeley on her TG.  These earthquakes are shaping up to be one of the largest disasters with the highest death and injury rates in our world, that we know of.  And the western world is still playing sanctions and trying to get one over on ‘the regime’.

https://t.me/VanessaBeeley/12742


Saturday, February 11

From Vanessa Beeley: ” Two planes from the #UAE and #Bangladesh arrived, Saturday morning, at #Damascus International Airport, loaded with humanitarian aid.”  They are physically breaking down the sanctions.  Venezuela did it first and now they are coming!  more and more.

As with the previous DOOFUS AWARD and the earlier NITWIT AWARD, we have one more to award. The COCAINE WALTZ AWARD goes to Zelenski, who is preaching a future not tethered to anything real. Zelensky Sticks to His Lines – The current Ukrainian Pres told his nation that in 2 years Ukraine “will become a full member of the European Union.” And that by then, Ukraine will be in NATO already following “victory”.

This messianic untethered and unhinged idiocy is actually very good because it truly helps our own discernment and it is easy to figure out the ridiculous vs the sublime.  The real question is whether the EU or NATO will exist in 2 years’ time.

So we can figure out that the US is now making war on balloons, as they’ve just sanctioned anyone in China that has anything to do with airship and balloon technology after shooting down another real or imaginary little object in space over Alaska.  Ride ’em cowboy!  It’s getting to be fun to see these ones riding the bomb.  Time for Stanley Kubrick!


Saturday, February 11

DOOFUS AWARD to the Estonian Prime Minister Kaija Kallas:

“I am very pleased to announce that today Estonia has handed over 10 F-16 fighter jets to Kiev . While other countries are in doubt, we are providing assistance. Unfortunately, we do not have the planes themselves, but the very fact of the transfer will be a colossal moral support for the people of Ukraine.

If this number is not enough, then we are ready to discuss the transfer of another 30 fighters .”

So DOOFUS WOMAN announces handover of 10 nonexistent fighter jets and will announce handover of another 30 fighter jets that are non-existent.  When is she going to announce 100 non-existent fighter jets?  Is this like playing teatime with a toddler with a little play teaset?

A wonderful depiction of Zelensky’s visit to the UK and Europe.

I had two comments this morning to the extent that wow .. it is too much!  One was from my husband that said he could not keep up!  Not my fault folks.  We know that this year was going to be very fast and majorly important.  Sorry, but still incoming for today, a Pepe Escobar interview and Radhika Desai and Michael Hudson on dedollarization.

Put a slow stew on the stove and make time for this time in our world.

From The Cradle:  Israel ready to bomb Iranian aid deliveries to Syria: Report

Israel has previously prevented aid from arriving in Syria by bombing the country’s airports, using similar claims of “weapons deliveries” from Iran.

Compare with China: Epicenter Diary: Chinese rescue team: No time to rest, keep searching


Friday, February 10

And now! The NITWIT AWARD to certain nitwits in Europe. Take a look – it is RT’s fault that Latin America will not give weapons to Ukraine. Yes, I kid you not, even with a personal talking to “…the region’s neutrality amid the conflict in Europe is doubly surprising, as some of its heads of states were given a personal talking-to by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.”

Oh boy … NITWIT LIVER SAUSAGE thinks it means something if he talks.

German Paper Pins Lack of Ukraine Support in Latin America on RT’s Spanish Branch Popularity

Germany’s Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) paper has claimed “Russian propaganda” found success in Latin America, because leaders like Brazil’s Lula da Silva do not want to pick a side in the Ukraine conflict and send ammunition to Kiev.

On this list Lula is joined, for example, by the presidents of Argentina and Chile. According to FAZ’s Swiss expert in South American affairs, Tjerk Brühwiller, the region’s neutrality amid the conflict in Europe is doubly surprising, as some of its heads of states were given a personal talking-to by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

As to the success of RT en Espanol, FAZ highlighted how it boasts 18 million subscribers on Facebook, double the numbers of the English-language page.

The Daily War Room in the Hearty Salon has an example of the changing rhetoric vis a vis Ukraine.  (I’ve not forgotten to update two commentators login status -. just been very busy and it is first on my list for today – after news and writing).


Thursday, February 9

Syrian state media confirmed that a plane from Venezuela’s state-owned airline Conviasa landed in Damascus, bringing 15 tons of humanitarian aid: Venezuela “breaks the [US/EU] blockade and arrives in Syria to help the people affected by the earthquake”.

(Blinky, this is how we ignore you!)


Thursday, February 9

SpaceX has restricted the access of military drones in Ukraine to the Starlink satellite communications network, said SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell.

Shotwell noted that Starlink was “not designed to be a weapon.”

So Ukraine cannot use Starlink for drone communication any longer.


Thursday, February 9

This is still a rumor but it becoming stronger as we speak.  Mr Putin drew his security team together apparently at midnight last evening.  The expectation is rife, that the Russian nuclear posture is in the process of change.

China is screaming to the rafters after the Biden SOTU address, where he of course made China the Big Evil again.  “As tension between China and the US is worsening due to the US’ hysterical overreaction in shooting down China’s unmanned civilian-use airship, the US military, politicians and media have moved on to hype another issue – that the so-called number of China’s intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launchers has surpassed that of the US. ”

It is very interesting to take a look at this almost incoherent Global Times piece.  They say a lot, but they do not say anything real on China’s nuclear arsenal. https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202302/1285070.shtml

Add that to North Korea, who proudly showed off their six or so ICBM’s and the picture is becoming clear of a very large nuclear force (shall we call it a deterrent to make ourselves feel better).  The US may be outmatched on this level as well, but it does not matter.  As Putin said, “We will all be dead.  You will die like dogs, and we will die with honor.”  (Quoted from memory).

Update on North Korea .. no, it was not six ICBM’s, it was eleven.  https://www.rt.com/news/571214-north-korea-intercontinental-ballistic-missiles/

Looking at the rescue attempts in Syria and in Turkiye, my heart breaks as I see how young children and babies are being pulled out of the rubble.  Personally, I cannot show those.


Thursday, February 9

From Vanessa Beeley’s TG:

The collective West are lying when they claim any solidarity with #Syrian people or that they are sending “humanitarian” aid to #Syria. They are sending only to areas controlled by #AlQaeda assets including #WhiteHelmets. Aid will not reach Syrian people in most cases. Either it will be stored by the terrorist gangs for resale at high prices to the Syrian people (standard MO) or it will be traded in Turkey from the Bab Al Hawa border crossing. Those supplying Humanitarian aid lack humanity and those receiving it don’t give a sh*t about Syrian people who they have exploited and murdered for 11 years. https://beeley.substack.com/p/un-official-challenges-punitive-unilateral.

So the earthquakes are simply being used as more geopolitical tools for the hegemon.  We are counting!  This will be a true depiction and discernment of heartless evil.   So far there is no ability to donate to anything in Syria.  I think perhaps Turkiye has a better ability to cope but would have liked to give something to Syria.

Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad:

US sanctions prevent the delivery of EVERYTHING to alleviate Syrian suffering after the earthquake.

In Turkiye, the ISIS militants made a jailbreak:  ISIS militants take advantage of massive earthquake to mount prison break

A view to Ukraine.  Simply, we don’t know and who reads Yahoo?

I am thankful for Douglas MacGregor, which is one of the sane voices out of the US regarding Russia and Ukraine and the area as a whole.  But oh dear, don’t say China, and he becomes a hawk like many others.  I don’t believe that Mexico or Venezuela are hotbeds of Chinese spies, but if you listen carefully, his problem is … communism or socialism.  What can we do with people that are very shortsighted when these words are used?


Thursday, February 9

Zelensky is traveling in the UK and the EU.   Will he go back to Ukraine?  Gonzalo Lira says he does not think so but, we don’t know.  Anyway, the whole trip is just extremely bad babble.  It is just another ‘give me weapons or give me money’ trip, this time warplanes because Ukraine is fighting for the freedom of Europe, according to this cocaine-addled scarecrow.


And here is a piece of good news that I was waiting for.  There is more coming from BRICS and China and widespread yuan usage:


Thursday, February 9

Zelinsky’s visit – as he leaves and after effusive promises, one after the other country says that they cannot give war planes to Ukraine.  So, while he was there, a lot of applause and promises.  Now, they cannot do it.  This story, the whole Ukraine business is changing materially in front of our eyes.   The UK was hot to trot, but they have nothing to give.  Now Belgium is not considering giving Ukraine its aircraft.

I think the well is dry and the penny for Ukraine is dropping.  Insiders admit that any delivery would be so slow as to barely make any difference to the conflict – and questions still loom over when Ukrainian pilots would be qualified to fly them even if they were received – and one UK Cabinet minister told inews, “We haven’t got any f****** jets to give!”


Thursday, February 9

We will see material changes very soon.  Pots are boiling everywhere.  China has just demanded that the sanctions against Syria must be dropped.  And Mao Ning, the very correct Chinese spokesperson is losing her equanimity.  She is always very correct.  She literally spat out this answer in her briefing this morning:

Bloomberg: The G7 member states are said to be discussing whether to sanction companies in China for what they believe to be providing Russia with parts and technology that have military purposes. This is according to people familiar with the matter. That plan also may include moves against Iranian and North Korean companies. What’s the foreign ministry’s response to the G7 members planning to sanction Chinese companies in relation to their activities with Russia?

Mao Ning: China’s position on the Ukraine issue is consistent and clear. We have upheld the four principles and called for joint efforts in four areas as was proposed by President Xi Jinping, taken an objective and just position, made active efforts to promote peace talks, and played a constructive role in alleviating tensions. We always oppose unilateral sanctions and long-arm jurisdiction with neither basis in international law nor a mandate of the UN Security Council. China will take all necessary measures to firmly safeguard the legitimate and lawful rights and interests of Chinese companies.

And on Biden’s SOTU, here is her response:  Biden’s threats against President Xi Jinping related to the conflict in Ukraine violate the basics of diplomatic etiquette.

“…his problem is … communism or socialism.”

Yes. Macgregor has 20/20 vision when it comes to Ukraine, but cannot admit to himself that socialism, (i.e. fraternity as a foundational operating principle) is a survival mechanism, a reaction to the very flaw that he knows exists in the system he loves.
