2023 is shaping up to be a wild year


Given the unusual events that have occurred in just the first two months of the year, I have a hunch that 2023 will be a wild year. To keep a record of significant news developments, I’ve created a timeline that I can periodically update as the year progresses. Hopefully, this won’t get out of hand. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!

Honestly, I’m not even going to keep track of mass shootings. They happen almost daily in the U.S. with no end in sight. That would be a very long list.

President Biden visits Ukraine

President Biden made a surprise visit to Ukraine to visit President Zelensky a few days before the first anniversary of the Russian-Ukraine war.
The move stoked outrage from conservatives who pointed out that the President flew halfway around the world to visit the war zone instead of going to East Palestine, Ohio, to the site of the devastating train wreck that happened weeks earlier.
This also caused #WW3 to trend on Twitter later in the day.
The next day, Putin said Russia was pulling out of the last standing nuclear pact with the USA called the New START treaty, which limited long-range nuclear warheads.


Nitric Acid Spill in Arizona

A semi truck hauling Nitric Acid flipped on its side on while traveling down I-10 near Tucson, Arizona. Citizens were told to shelter in place until the toxic fumes could be neutralized.


Earthquake in Turkey

A magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Turkey killing tens of thousands of people. This was the second strongest earthquake to hit the country since the 1668 North Anatolia earthquake.


Train Derailments

A Norfolk Southern train carrying toxic chemicals derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, near the border of Pennsylvania. Nearby residents were evacuated, and a federal investigation is underway. The Ohio river has been polluted for hundreds of miles downstream, threatening the drinking water of several million people.
There were two more within a week after this incident in South Carolina and Houston, Texas. In South Carolina, a CSX train left the tracks. The Texas incident was between a Union Pacific train and a semi. The truck driver did not make it. All three trains were hauling toxic chemicals among their freight.
Another train hauling tanker cars derailed in Detroit a few days later. It is important to note that the USA averages between 3 to 5 derailments a day. These incidents are simply garnering attention because of the Ohio crash, which is proven to be potentially dangerous for residents.


Chinese balloon spotted over North America

China’s surveillance balloon entered U.S. airspace near Alaska before transiting over Canada and then the continental U.S. It was shot down on February 4th just off the east coast over the Atlantic Ocean.
Three more objects were shot down over the next seven days, but they are now thought to be from hobbyists or universities.
This is why it is essential to remain calm and let cool heads prevail. One miscalculation can get many innocent people killed. It is a high-stakes game to pound our pitchforks over allegations.
