At Least 38 Rights Groups Oppose U.S. Cluster Bombs Delivery to Ukraine
 | 9 July 2023 | At least 38 human rights organizations have publicly opposed a delivery of cluster bombs to Ukraine and expressed concern over the weapon’s ability to drop bomblets that can endanger civilians for years by failing to detonate and remaining as explosive hazards, a U.S. newspaper [The Hill] reported. The arms delivery comes as the Ukrainian troops are using “high rates” of ammunition and amid Washington’s concerns that Ukraine’s counteroffensive against Russia-held territories has stalled, the report said on Friday. Meanwhile, a prominent international rights group urged for an end to the use of cluster munitions in the Ukrainian conflict and said that the country should be cleaned up of such bombs. 

Spain Joins NATO Allies, UN in Opposing U.S. Transfer of Cluster Munitions to Ukraine | 9 July 2023 | The Biden administration signed off on the delivery of howitzer-launched cluster munitions to Ukraine on Friday of a kind which the U.S. military had previously pledged to destroy. Russian officials condemned the move as a major escalation. Spain does not support the U.S. decision to send cluster munitions to Ukraine, Defense Minister Margarita Robles has announced. “Spain, based on the firm commitment it has to Ukraine, also has a firm commitment that certain weapons and bombs cannot be delivered under any circumstances,” Robles said. As a party to the Convention on Cluster Munitions, Spain has a “clear and resounding” position on this type of weapon, and the U.S. decision to send the arms to Ukraine was “not a NATO decision,” she added.

White House confirms transfer of controversial cluster bombs to Ukraine –Washington has approved the move despite knowing the risk to civilians, the U.S. national security adviser has said | 7 July 2023 | Joe Biden has green-lighted the supply of cluster munitions to Ukraine as part of the Pentagon’s 42nd arms package for Kiev’s forces. The White House said that Biden made the decision despite the risk of harm to civilians. The president approved the transfer based on “unanimous” advice from his national security team, National Security Adviser [war criminal] Jake Sullivan told reporters on Friday. US officials “recognize that cluster munitions create a risk of civilian harm from unexploded ordnance. This is why we deferred the decision for as long as we could,” Sullivan said, before arguing that the supply of cluster bombs is not “that much of an addition of civilian harm,” as Russia has allegedly used them in Ukraine already.

Ukraine admits responsibility for terror attack on Crimean bridge –The strike sought to derail Russian logistics, a deputy defense minister has said | 9 July 2023 | Ukraine, has for the first time, apparently admitted playing a role in the deadly attack on the Crimean Bridge last autumn. The incident belongs in the list of achievements for the country’s armed forces, a senior official has claimed. While Moscow has repeatedly claimed that the attack was staged by the Ukrainians, officials in Kiev had never before directly admitted responsibility. On Saturday, Ukrainian Deputy Defense Minister Anna Maliar published a post on Telegram commemorating 500 days since the start of the conflict between Kiev and Moscow, outlining several highlights. The list includes an apparent public acknowledgment of Kiev’s role in the attack on the key link between the eastern part of the Russian peninsula and the rest of the country. “[It has been] 273 days since the first strike was conducted on the Crimean bridge to break the Russian logistics,” Maliar wrote.

Biden Says Ukraine ‘Not Ready’ to Join NATO | 9 July 2023 | Joe Biden says Ukraine is “not ready” to join NATO despite Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s recent push to join the treaty organization. Ahead of Biden’s trip to a NATO summit in Lithuania, Zelensky said during an interview that it is wholly in Biden’s power to advance the eastern European nation’s membership with NATO. Many in Ukraine support such a move, but Western leaders fear that, due to the nature of NATO treaty obligations, this would immediately embroil all of Europe in a war with Russia. Under Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty, an attack on any nation within the NATO alliance is treated as an attack on all, and members of the alliance are each expected to take up arms in defense of the others. Pointing to this provision, Biden told CNN that Ukraine is “not ready” to join the alliance as conflict continues.

Turkey agrees to back Sweden’s NATO bid –President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has dropped his opposition to Stockholm’s application to join the Western military bloc | 10 July 2023 | NATO has cleared the way for Sweden to join the Western military alliance by persuading Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to end his opposition to Stockholm’s bid. [Right, he didn’t want another “Pentagon-assisted” earthquake to strike Turkey again, killing another 50,000 people.] The Turkish leader agreed to support Sweden’s application and forward the proposal to Ankara lawmakers for ratification, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said after hosting a meeting between Erdogan and Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson on Monday in Vilnius. Turkey had stood in the way of NATO’s latest expansion, using its veto power largely on concern that Sweden hadn’t done enough to help crack down on pro-Kurdish “terrorist organizations.” 

UN ‘Pact for the Future’ Seeks Permanent Emergency Powers for ‘Complex Global Shocks’ | 5 July 2023 | The UN is set to outline a far reaching plan to secure emergency powers that would allow the global body to lead a “common agenda” for all nations during any “complex global shocks” such as a new pandemic. The Federalist reports that the plan is to be finalised at a September 2024 ‘Summit of the Future,’ where the UN will adopt a “Pact for the Future,” to include policies that have been outlined in the globalist body’s “Our Common Agenda” report. One such policy is an “emergency platform” during any events that have a global impact that would provide the UN the authority to “actively promote and drive an international response that places the principles of equity and solidarity at the centre of its work.” Meanwhile: “…[T]he United Nations would be given unprecedented authority over the public and private sectors of huge swaths of the world, all in the name of battling a yet unknown crisis.”

‘Nudge Unit’ Chief Says UK Will Obey Future Lockdowns: Citizens Have ‘Learnt the Behaviour’ | 6 July 2023 | A UK government adviser is confident any future pandemic lockdown and compulsory mask edicts will be met with compliance because people have learnt a new behaviour and “in principle, you can switch it back on.” Professor David Halpern told The Daily Telegraph the country had “practised the drill” of wearing face masks and working from home and “could redo it” in a future crisis because people are now conditioned to do what they are told. Enforced loss of personal freedoms was one of the hallmarks of the Conservative government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Rand Paul plans to introduce a bill to protect Americans from the Biden administration violating their First Amendment rights. Fox News Digital has learned that Paul is expected to propose the Free Speech Protection Act on Tuesday, which would impose harsh penalties on federal employees and contractors who leverage their positions to attack speech protected under the First Amendment. The bill would empower American citizens to sue the government and executive branch officials who violate the First Amendment of the Constitution, according to Paul’s office.

Biden Regime Files Notice of Appeal in MO v. Biden Censorship Case, Demands the Right to Keep Censoring Conservatives | 5 July 2023 | The Biden regime on Wednesday filed a notice of appeal in the Missouri v. Biden censorship case. The Gateway Pundit is proudly the lead plaintiff in this case against Joe Biden. A Trump-appointed federal judge on Tuesday issued a preliminary injunction prohibiting DHS, FBI, DOJ, and other agencies from its government-wide, fascist conspiracy with Big Tech to censor speech and manipulate the public on a variety of topics. The federal government censored the Hunter Biden laptop story, Covid lab-leak theory, efficiency of Covid vaccines and many other topics. Google, Facebook, and Twitter are all named in the lawsuit. U.S. District Court Judge Terry Doughty found the Biden Regime violated the First Amendment by censoring unfavorable views in a blistering 155-page opinion.

Roger Stone Says Trump Told Him the Remaining Classified JFK Assassination Documents Were ‘So Horrible’ | 5 July 2023 | Roger Stone was recently on Human Events Daily hosted by Jack Posobiec and had some very interesting details to share regarding the remaining classified JFK assassination documents. Posobiec stared off the segment by mentioning that the Biden administration has extended the declassification of files regarding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy… Stone shared with Posobiec that in 2017, he contacted President Trump and asked Trump what he was going to do about the JFK documents, because under the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992, all the documents were set to be released… Despite pushback, Trump did release over 80% of JFK documents which revealed Lee Henry Oswald received a 1099 from the FBI and attended a foreign language school funded by the Pentagon. Stone later asked Trump why he didn’t release the remaining 20% of the JFK assassination files to which Trump replied “I can’t tell you. It’s so horrible you wouldn’t believe it. Someday, you’ll find out all about it.”

Massachusetts approves driver’s licenses to illegal migrants, as border surge taxes state resources –A former DHS official expressed concerns to Just the News that the state is on its way to enabling voting for non-citizens. | 9 July 2023 | Massachusetts has become the most recent state to allow illegal migrants to apply for a driver’s license, a move that has the potential to ease some of the burden on government resources already struggling from the surge in immigration. The “Work and Family Mobility Act” went into effect July 1 — after roughly two decades of debate on the matter in the commonwealth’s Legislature. The new law allows eligible Massachusetts residents to apply to obtain a standard driver’s license, regardless of immigration status, removing a previous state requirement that residents provide proof of immigration status, according to local radio station WGBH-FM.

90% of U.S. Jobs Created in June Went to Foreign Born Workers – Including Illegals | 7 July 2023 | U.S. job growth slowed in the month of June. There were 209,000 non-farm jobs created last month versus a forecast of 225,000 new jobs for the month. May payrolls were revised lower to up 306,000 from up 339,000, a loss of 33,000 jobs. And, of course, wage gains did not keep up with inflation once again. But the news is even more bleak for American families. On Friday morning, Heritage Foundation Fellow, E. J. Antoni joined the War Room podcast to discuss the latest jobs numbers. E. J. pointed out that 90 percent of the new jobs created went to foreigners. And that number includes illegal aliens.

  1. Every one of these news items is a direct result of the DC swamp and their actions for the last 70+ years. Every one.
    Regardless of biden being cognizant of his actions, the supply of cluster bombs to Ukraine now links the US government and biden administration to potential war crimes. The proxy war is ending, the “swamp” has authorized war with Russia.

  2. One big problem in the U.S. and Western Europe is the unwillingness of young people and others to work menial jobs, even at decent pay. Thus immigrant labor is needed.

    • We have a serious housing shortage (what liberals refer to as a “crisis”) so why are we inviting millions of indigent, mostly-illiterate migrants in, knowing that they need to live somewhere. Our labor shortage with menial work will be solved when our govt stops giving away so much free stuff and people have to go back to earning their own way.

  3. This is a great new feature of the Daily Chronicle, rundowns of national and international events of considerable importance. What a contrast to the navel gazing of Vt Digger.

    • Thank you, John. We want to have a national and international news presence, even if some of it might seem “out there” to some.
