Sick of the same old, same old boring list of predictable, safe New Year's predictions that are so vague they can't possibly come true? (Weaponized narratives, indeed!)
Yeah. So am I. So, in the spirit of spicing things up for this post-holiday hangover season, let's kick the year off with a bunch of outrageous predictions that probably won't come true . . . but might at least get us thinking in the right direction.
1. A grand jury will unravel the 9/11 plot and deliver justice for that crime.
As Corbett Report listeners are already well aware, last year the Lawyers' Committee for 9/11 Inquiry filed a petition requesting the U. S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York to convene a special grand jury to investigate the unprosecuted federal crimes relating to the destruction of three World Trade Center Towers on September 11, 2001. And as viewers of New World Next Week are also aware, the U.S. Attorney responded to the Lawyers' Committee on November 7th of last year in a letter claiming that he "will comply with the provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 3332 as they relate to your submissions."
So we all know what that means, right? Of course! It means that the government is going to investigate itself, find itself guilty for the crime of the false flag event that was 9/11, and deliver justice for the victims. Duh.
All those who, in the past, have been known to mutter "conspiracy theorist" under their breath and roll their eyes when someone attempts to question the official, government-approved conspiracy theory of 9/11 will, of course, be thoroughly ashamed of their past ways and will seek to mend fences with their savvier, conspiracy-realist brethren. United at last, the whole world will watch as the gaggle of neocons that committed the crimes do the orange jumpsuit perp walk, and all of the congress critters on both sides of the aisle who have maintained the cover-up will be marching with them.
Or, you know, some hacker group will release a bunch of secret documents that blow the case wide open. Whichever comes first.
2. The Korean War will end (because they want it).
Much has been made of this in the lamestream media, of course, especially coming on the heels of what was characterized as a "conciliatory message" from Kim to Trump just last week.
Does this mean that the North Koreans want to see that the Trump administration (which has already pulled out of agreements without cause) will actually live up to its end of the bargain before completely disarming itself? Gasp! The nerve!
But what you might not have read is that a second, more important narrative is emerging from Pyongyang. You see, at this point Kim (and everyone else, really) knows that the biggest strides toward peace in the past year have come not from any NK/US haggling but from the growing ties between North and South Korea. As Jason Ditz over at Antiwar.com observes:
One thing North Korea is being a bit more direct on is wanting more summits between Kim and South Korea's President Moon Jae-in. South Korea's Blue House has confirmed that Kim has told them he wants multiple high-level meetings to work toward denuclearization. For Kim, working with South Korea has been a lot more productive than working with the US. Though he and Trump got along well enough, the US has refused any sanctions relief following the effort, and has actually escalated US sanctions and threats against the north even as Trump praises them for advances toward meeting US demands.
So, who knows? We just may see an end to the nuclear death match on the Korean peninsula in 2019 after all. And for once, the end of that conflict won't be dictated by Uncle Sam or the ChiComs or any outside power, but the Koreans themselves. Wouldn't that make a nice change?
But wait, that's not the only hopeful anti-war message for the New Year . . .
