While Peace Proceeds on Pace in Korea, the People of Hawaii Were PURPOSEFULLY Subjected to 38-minutes of Terror

by Scott Creighton

On the Korean peninsula leaders from South Korea and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) met this past week in an effort to walk back the aggressive stance that’s developed between the two halves of one former nation. Today, the state media of the DPRK hailed this moment as historic as there are once again, hopes for peace and reunification on the horizon. Even the warmongering complicit media outlet CNN seemed taken in by the optimism.

“A North Korean state newspaper is celebrating the country’s leader over the resumption of face-to-face talks with the South, saying Kim Jong Un’s policy to improve relations were “brilliant” for “national reunification.”

The article in state newspaper Rodong Sinmun said recent high-level talks “proved again that there is no problem unsolvable if the North and the South pool their efforts.”
In talks Tuesday, the North agreed to send a delegation to next month’s Winter Olympics in South Korea and to hold talks with Seoul to ease military tensions…

Despite climate and terrain favorable for participating in cold-weather sports, North Korea hasn’t sent a delegation to the Winter Olympics since 1992.” CNN

Our various leaders have worked really hard over the last few decades making sure peace didn’t break out in the region. Peace isn’t profitable. And a potential reunification of the Koreas would undoubtedly effect some of our glorious national interest’s profit margins.

Recently the new president of South Korea has taken a less than aggressive stance toward their neighbors in the north and we couldn’t have that so all sorts of stories came out about “missile tests” that weren’t actually missiles and aircraft carrier groups “steaming” toward North Korea when they were actually headed in the opposite direction some 3,000 miles away for some R&R and drills near Australia.

Donald Trump did his part talking about “rocket man” and “fire and fury” and saying whatever he could to dissuade the South from even talking to their counterparts from the north. And last week when the north and south committed to and acted on peace talks (probably inspired by Vladamir Putin)… The Donald took little time to pat himself on the back for it. Fox News followed suit and have been doing so ever since.

Today the people of Hawaii got a bit of a scare. It looked something like this:

That is an official emergency alert that was sent to everyone’s cell phone in Hawaii. As you can see, it says there are incoming missiles, it isn’t a drill and everyone should take shelter immediately.

The panic and horror that ensued was tremendous.

As No One Watched, Trump Pardoned 5 Megabanks For Corruption Charges—Who He Owes Millions

by Rachel Blevins, Free Thought Project

While Americans celebrated the holidays, President Trump followed in the footsteps of his predecessors by acting in the interest of Wall Street and using the distraction to do something that was not in the best interest of the American people. He pardoned five megabanks for rampant fraud and corruption, which is especially notable because of the amount of money he owes them.

Trump has been using Deutsche Bank since the 1990s, and Financial Times has reported that he now owes the bank at least $130 million in outstanding loans secured in properties in Miami, Chicago, and Washington. However, the report claimed that the actual number is likely much larger at $300 million.

Reports claimed that Deutsche was the only bank willing to lend Trump money after his companies faced multiple bankruptcies. The relationship has continued over the years, and an analysis from the Wall Street Journal claimed that Trump has received at least $2.5 billion in loans from Deutsche Bank over the last 20 years.

There have been concerns about Trump’s ties to the bank becoming a conflict of interest, dating back to the 2016 election, and the evidence to support those concerns is now becoming clear.

During the week of Christmas, the Federal Register announced that the Trump Administration had issued waivers to Citigroup, JPMorgan, Barclays, UBS and Deutsche Bank—all megabanks facing charges of fraud and corruption.

The banks were involved in the LIBOR Scandal, in which they colluded to deliberately depress the rate at which they paid out on investments. By suppressing the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) at the beginning of an economic crisis in 2007, the megabanks were able to boost their earnings and to give their customers a false sense of security…
