Watch. You will know what's happening as it happens.

The gaslighting of Americans may continue, but it will be easily punctured by reality,

If you are in the US, it is too late for other plans.

This is how it is unfolding.

on at an accelerating pace. The presses keep printing money, and that house of cards is about to face a serious windstorm.

Sadly, we have learned nothing whatsoever from history- and as a result, we're going to repeat those lessons yet another time. The beat goes on.

The bankers, the war mongers, the financiers, the psychopaths, the hegemons, the empire seekers, the lying politicians, and media moguls.

The US is their plantation, which pays the bills and shoulders their debt.

Neither Russia nor China is our enemy.
Neither Iran nor Venezuela are threatening America.

lost my post. I'll try again, and save it this time.

This Hankyoreh review of former South Korean president Moon Jae-in's memoir is better than others-

Kim Jong-un wanted to meet with residents of shelled Yeonpyeong Island in South, Moon recalls in memoir

As for Donald Trump, the former US president who was Moon’s primary diplomatic counterpart while in office, Moon noted that “some regarded him as uncouth and unpolished, but I liked his candor” and added that “Seoul-Washington relations were more robust [under Trump] than under any previous administration.”

Regarding the matter of South Korea’s share of defense costs, he recalled, “Because President Trump’s demands were so excessive, there was no progress in negotiations for a long time, and I even ordered a suspension of the negotiations.” At the same time, he stressed, “There were no difficulties in bilateral relationships or my relationship with President Trump as a result.”

After the Hanoi summit’s failure to produce a deal, he noted, “President Trump himself later apologized to me and told me he regretted it.”

“He said that while he was willing to accept [Kim Jong-un’s proposal], national security adviser Bolton was dead set against it, and Secretary Pompeo supported Bolton, which left his hands tied,” he explained.

BBC just released a sensational documentary with tabloid like appeal about the Burning Sun nightclub scandal in Gangnam involved name Kpop idols. It's a sordid tale about exploitation of women, rape, drugs, business and police corruption, etc. Joonang has a number of front page articles on this, I put one link on the female idol Ku Ha-ra who risked everything to expose the corruption and abuse of women in the Kpop world.

Koo Ha-ra's tip-off, K-pop's 'dark underbelly' revealed in BBC documentary

Here's a link to the BBC World youtube documentary-

Burning Sun: Exposing the secret K-pop chat groups - BBC World Service Documentaries

In South Korea, K-pop stars have fame, fortune and millions of female fans. But some led a double life, inhabiting a hidden world where videos of women being drugged, assaulted and humiliated were shared. This #BBCEye documentary tells the story of the female journalists who took on the task of investigating the secret chat groups of prominent K-pop stars - and paid a high personal price.

Burning with it's sensational tabloid style appeal is going to overshadow the impact of Moon's memoir.

Trying to keep my mind off my visit to the OR tomorrow. They say it's routine. Can't eat, etc. My dog Smokey aka geumtacji (sticks like gum) has some serious problem too, needs surgery. It ain't easy... Trying to stay distracted.

QMS thanks for the open thread!
