Welcome to The Daily Wrap Up, a concise show dedicated to brining you the most relevant independent news, as we see it, from the last 24 hours.
While Trump’s recent comments are still dominating the MSM discussion, to begin today I would like you to consider a question posed in a recent tweet by Lee Camp, and one that we ourselves have posed in the past, and this that the US currently spends a trillion dollars on its military every year, yet the UN estimates it would take only $30 Billion a year to end world hunger. So why is it that the US remains focused on war and imperialistic endeavors under the guise of morality and concern for the well-being of average individuals, when the ability to actually help the average world citizen is well within their grasp? For regulars of this show, I would imagine the answer is quite clear by now.
We spend a trillion dollars on military every yr. The UN estimates it would take $30 Billion a year to end world hunger. Why not do that??

Today we discuss the recent events in Hawaii and whether or not this was a planned psyop to gauge the reactions of Americans to an imminent threat, and even further stoke irrational fears in regard to North Korea, or if it was simply a mishap, a “slip of the finger” as it were.

We explore a recent UN probe exposing just how horrendous the current war on Yemen truly is, and ask the simple and easily answered question, of why this story is both being ignored by mainstream media, and why Saudi Arabia is not being held responsible for its gross violation of human rights?
We also discuss James Corbett’s recent article entitled, “4 Privacies You Didn’t Know You Lost,” and much more in the 1/14 daily wrap up:
