    This can be a one-off thread or continuously updated.

    With all of the tangential media coverage of crap that just doesn't matter such as the Trump/CNN Twitter war or the Trump Handshake Snub and the like...what are we missing? What are we being distracted from? In the last 36 hours (rolling 36 hour period if you like) what has happened behind the scenes and gone all but unreported?

    Where do you get your non-MSM news or do your research to find out what "they" are trying to do under cover of darkness (media blackout if you will)?

    The more of us who know where to look, the less likely out will be missed and the more prepared we can all be.

    The United States and South Korea regularly hold annual military drills in March and April which often provoke a fierce response from North Korea, often including missile launches and nuclear tests.
    China first suggested a suspension of drills in exchange for North Korea's nuclear program in March, when Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the US and North Korea were set for a "head-on collision."
    The latest United States and South Korea drills held Wednesday were designed to display both countries' own missile strength, Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said in a statement.

    A bit more than the usual US/RoK 'war games'

    The World Health Organization says that the number of suspected cases of cholera in Yemen is growing by 5,000 every day. AND UN's World Health Organization also warns that as many as 300,000 people (in Yeman) could be infected by the end of August.

    Britain will fall silent on the 10th anniversary of the July 7 terrorist attacks in memory of the 52 people killed in London

    local news from Brazil. I would note Brazil has the land mass of the US and a wealth of resources - and corruption at all levels....

    In other news (US)

    The Department of Veterans Affairs announced today that more than 500 officials have been fired for misconduct since President Trump took office earlier this year, according to data posted online.

    In an effort for more transparency and accountability within the VA, Secretary of Veterans Affairs David J. Shulkin announced that a public list of employee "accountability actions" will be posted online and updated weekly.

    The list outlines a total of 747 disciplinary actions including 526 employees who were fired since January 20. The actions affected a myriad of positons ranging from a tractor operator to VA attorneys.The list does not include employee names due to privacy reasons but does note the employee's position and VA region.

    "Veterans and taxpayers have a right to know what we're doing to hold our employees accountable and make our personnel actions transparent," Secretary Shulkin said in a statement.

    This announcement comes less than a month after President Trump signed the Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act which strengthened the ability of Secretary Shulkin to discipline VA officials. President Trump said that previous laws "…kept the government from holding those who failed our veterans accountable."

    Doubt this will show on any mass media news as it shows, once more, the Trump is doing what he said he would do.

    Good job, President Trump!

    As to the media's evil machinations, misdirection is the very foundation of mind/thought control!

    As for the MSM, a headline running a couple days ago,
    "US fires missiles at North Korea."

    The attached article said something quite different. But many read only the headlines.
