(Colonialistes contrôle encore économie.)

It is the fear of being colonized that so sinfully justifies their act of financial colonization.


In 1990’s, the U.S. launched a money war against Japan leveraging two cards: (1) the BIS requirement for maintaining capital adequacy ratios of at least 8% in banks to be qualified in the global market and (2) the accounting procedure to value shareholdings at market rates.

But, at the G7 Meeting held in April, Mr. Ben Shalom Bernanke of FRB so easily made a statement that the U.S. will no more observe these rules.

Some Japanese watchers have called it scandalously immoral.

The following figure presented in an IMF report tells everything about the positions of the U.S., Japan, European major countries, and China in the contemporary financial world.

That is why US elites have to keep strong ties, personally and institutionally, with China, Japan, Germany, and Saudi Arabia.

Ordinary citizens in the U.S. have only vague ideas on this state of the global dynamic balance of money flow. But, without appropriate awareness in this concern, they cannot catch up with and rise up against US elites with full of plots and conspiracies they are pursuing while sacrificing interests of ordinary citizens.

Ordinary citizens in the U.S. should stop being the same breed as those elites.

The American Dream should not be toward material success but toward spiritual success.

Then a probability of the occurrence of the next global great depression will be lessened.


Don’t you feel any sense of alarm when checking another IMF figure as below shown?

(Click on the figure for a larger view.)

And, apart from “Home equity,” what does specifically “Other” mean?

In addition, “spread” usually means a gap between two figures, such as interests. If you want to sell your house at a higher price but others want to buy it at a lower price, the spread becomes large.


The United Nations must adopt a resolution that speculative money is not allowed to be put into the crude oil market and the grain market.

Do not let those, whose financial paradigm is of colonial ages far before WWII, WWI, and the Civil War, harm and damage the future prosperity and peace of mankind.

It is because a total amount of financial assets in the world has reached $150 trillion in 2006.

This is more than three times larger than a total amount of the global real economy.

And an amount of money being traded globally over the global high-speed communications/computers-complex systems has reached nowadays $3 trillion per day.

(By the way, the most remarkable song that symbolized a change in the mood of the Japanese society after WWII might be the following, since it was conceived like a happy augury for the New Era of 100-million people totally belonging to the middle class. And, it was taken seriously not as a comic song in those days, though it might not win your heart at all, nowadays.

Luk 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

Luk 21:26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

Luk 21:27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

“Fools Are Day Traders…”

“Fools Are Day Traders…”

(Le jour où les commerçants sont des idiots)

Yesterday, I went to nearby paddy fields to find some unexpected birds therein.

Where have the souls of victims of the recent great disasters around Tibet gone?

SECTION I:“Fools Are Day Traders…”

An executive of Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan said early this year: “Day traders are typically the most corrupt shareholders. They are fools, capricious and irresponsible, so that voting rights need not be given to them.”

The above report also reads:
This is worrisome. Was Kitabata lying to the business leaders he spoke to on that day, or is this a sign of closed-door policy discussion? Either way, this incident shows a lack of transparency in policy making that Japan can ill-afford to be characterized by…

We also saw hedge funds pulling 900 billion yen in assets out of Japan last year, which was the first time that figure had ever been negative…


I would rather forbear from presenting my personal opinions here, though not proudly, since the above cited article is not what I wrote pretending to be another reporter...

SECTION II: "An Abusive Acquirer"

They smartly got 2.0 billion yen (19.6 million dollars) in the stock market of Japan.

Japan's Bull-Dog Sauce Co. said Friday that the US investment fund Steel Partners had sold its entire stake in the iconic condiment maker after its defeat in a high-profile takeover battle…

However, the sequence of this transaction is smartly summarized in a Japanese blog.

( )

Based on a poison bill policy, the company divided one share into four.

Steel Partners raised its TOB price to 1,700 yen.

So, the company purchased three quarters of stocks Steel Partners garnered at this (very high) price, which brought a huge profit to the latter.

Meanwhile, “The Tokyo High Court last year branded Steel Partners an "abusive acquirer" in a major setback to the fund and its head Warren Lichtenstein, who has said he wants to "educate" Japanese managers.”

SECTION III: “The Informal World Government”

The Bilderberg Club, reportedly including Mr. Henry Kissinger, the Rockefellers and the Rothschild clan, was recently convened in Athens.

Others predicted that the meeting would be held somewhere within the US to coincide with a recent meeting of the Trilateral Commission, the private organization, established by David Rockefeller, of which many Bilderbergers are also members. …

The Club reportedly once invited Mr. George H. W. Bush, Mr. Bill Clinton, and Mr. John Edwards.

They convoked a conference in various places in the past:
2008 May 8-11: Vouliagmeni, Greece
2007 May 31-June 3 : Istanbul, Turkey.
2006 June 8-11 : Ottawa, Canada.
2005 May 5-8 : Rottach-Egern, Germany.
2004 June 3-6 : Stresa, Italy.
2003 May 15-18 : Versailles, Paris, France.
2002 May 30-June 2 : Chantilly, Virginia, USA.
2001 May 24-27 : Gothenburg, Sweden.
2000 June 1-4 : Genval, Brussels, Belgium.
1999 June 3-6 : Sintra, Portugal.
1998 May 14-17 : Turnberry,Ayrshire, Scotland.
1997 June 12-15 : Lake Lanier, Georgia, USA.
1996 May 30-June 1 : Toronto, Canada.
1995 June 8-11 : Zurich, Switzerland.
1994 June 3-5 : Helsinki, Finland.
1993 April 22-25 : Athens, Greece.

( )

However, I think they are not so smart enough to plan and carry out the Sept. 11 Conspiracy.


Now, you may think I lack an ability to be super-rich.

But, look at them.

From a day trader, called a fool, to a Mafia-like investing company, called an abusive acquirer, and further members of a certain club having some journalists call them the “Informal World Government” while forgetting themselves and God, they have not contributed their blood, sweat, and tears to the creation and expansion of the value for mankind, according to all what I have heard.

They have never created or enriched spiritual culture that separated mankind from the primates or apes very long time ago.

I wonder how they would cope if a great disaster occur around them so timely, like the Great Sichuan Earthquake that occurred near Tibet one week after my visit to the Tokyo Imperial Meiji Shrine and two days after the leave of the Chinese President from Japan?

I wonder whether they admit that a miracle I foretold on May 4 happened eventually on May 12, though they are laughing at our prima-facie inability to be super-rich.

(Now, listen to music, since fools, abusers, and those forgetting themselves and the God have made us very unpleasant.

And, I truly envy you so much, if working at the seafront like Athens…

Have a nice holiday.

I can also go for a humble vacation…around Tokyo, though…)

Luk 5:16 And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.

Luk 5:17 And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.

Luk 5:18 And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.

Luk 5:19 And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus.

Luk 5:20 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

Luk 5:21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?

Luk 5:22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?

Luk 5:23 Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?

(Around Tokyo)


(Le Web log manutentionnaires)


Japan’s murder rate is the lowest among OECD countries:
Worst No.1…Mexico….13 victims per 100,000 people
No.9….South Korea…2.2
No. 30…Japan….0.5

However, the ratio is 55.3 for El Salvador, 49 for Jamaica, 45.2 for Guatemala, and 45 for Venezuela.

Most of Central America countries seem to be ten times more dangerous than the U.S., while the U.S. is almost ten times more perilous than Japan.

And, as the murder rate is 1.64 for France, the country is better than Israel with the rate of 2.62, according to the most recent survey.

Note also that in 1974 the rate is 141 for Lebanon; 269 for Albania in 1997; and 65.8 for Columbia even in 2002.

But who would launch the War on Global Murders, especially targeting Central and South Americas?

A holy lesson here is that "be thankful to God if the murder rate around you is the one near to Japan’s."

Japanese should, of course, consider the launching of the War on Global Murders, leading permanent members of the U.N. Security Council.

For this international campaign, its headquarters can be established in Tokyo.


There are some reports on monitoring blogs by US Government agencies:
Hot on the heels of our post earlier this week about corporate blog monitoring, the Washington Times reveals that the CIA is now tracking blogs and other ‘open source’ intelligence resources:

Also there is an FT report on monitoring blogs by UK Government agencies; but as usual, British media lacks ability to understand and praise things concerned with Japan:

The COI, the UK government’s communications agency, is working on a way to monitor what people say about policy on blogs and internet forums for the media briefings it sends to ministers….

The media buyer said this lagged far behind China and south Korea where blogging – mostly devoid of politics in China – was more widespread, and less likely to be seen as self-interested as it is in the west…

The vast majority of blogs in the UK and the US are abandoned after a relatively short period of time or read by only a handful of friends or contacts.

Please remember that I checked the following material, too, the other day:


An ex-elite bureaucrat of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan also wrote that his blog, used in his consulting business, was surely under surveillance by CIA and other US military agencies.

He also introduced a document on “Blogs and Military Information Strategy” issued by US joint Special Operations University, though it states that “the views expressed in this publication are entirely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views, policy or position of the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, USSOCOM, or the Joint Special Operations University.”

Some noteworthy descriptions in the above document are as follows:
U.S. information operations (IO) in Iraq have run up against a formidable cyber-savvy foe in the fight to influence and control cyberspace. The insurgent cyberforce has fought well against the highly-financed and organized U.S. IO community…

As of April 2006, was tracking 35.3 million weblogs and recording 75,000 new ones each day…

Technorati found that the New York Times, CNN, and The Washington Post still garnered the most links, but the top blog (Boing Boing) beat out such media sites as PBS, Fox News, and Time magazine…

There are certain to be cases where some blog, outside the control of the U.S. government, promotes a message that is antithetical to U.S. interests, or actively supports the informational, recruiting and logistical activities of our enemies….

Given the current state of U.S. and international law, and the distribution of the necessary authorities among many (often competing) government agencies, any future conduct of influence operations through the blogosphere will require a truly integrated interagency approach, and thus belongs properly at the national level as a part of an overarching Strategic Communications effort….

Finally, the suggested techniques for using computer network attacks against blogs in support of influence operations are hypothetical as well, and require testing before they can be employed…

One of the significant limitations of this paper, as an initial foray into military use of the blogosphere, is that much of the information available concerns American blogs, run by Americans, largely for an American audience. Military use of the blogosphere must necessarily focus on foreign blogs, bloggers and audiences…

EEE Reporter can be monitored by anybody, including CIA and the White House.

I hope that CIA and the White House would start to walk in God’s way together with EEE Reporter, since Princess Diana died in 1997; the 9/11 Terror Occurred in 2001; the great Sumatra Tsunami happened in 2004; Great Earthquake hit Pakistan and Hurricane Katrina raged in the U.S. in 2005; and Myanmar and South China, south and north of Tibet, are now suffering the aftermath of the great cyclone and earthquake, respectively.

Do not forget that EEE Reporter was giving a warning against the US financial crisis including the subprime-loan problem even in these years.


If the blog culture cannot successfully flourish in Japan, a country with one of the smallest murder rates in the world, blogs cannot be handled by mankind for its peace and prosperity.

Chinese people will learn lessons from Japan so as to eventually start a revolution to introduce true democracy.

Americans also will learn lessons from Japan so as to eventually start a religious revolution and walk in God’s way.

That is why I am observing some potentially influential blogs in Japan as introduced in these days.

(Mr. John Edwards has endorsed Mr. Obama.

Now, every net savvy is writing that the game was over, since every cartoonist is attacking Mrs. Clinton.

But, “we know it can’t be done by a handful of people in each local union or in Washington, DC. It is going to take an army of working people fanned out across America, and that’s what we’re building. This year, were not just going to win the election. We’re going to restore the American Dream.”

If Mr. Obama does not walk in God’s way, he as President will surely make some happy but more disappointed.

What do you think about that?

A labor union without Marxists but with poor and good natured citizens is better than ultra-rightists, including various pretenders, actors, and players, isn’t it?

Oh, please pretend to be in love, if you are not so sure, Mlles.)

Mar 5:16 And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.

Mar 5:17 And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.

Mar 5:18 And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.

Mar 5:19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.

Japanese Elites and Blogs

(Around Tokyo, Japan)

Japanese Elites and Blogs

(Japonais élites et de leur utilisation de l'Internet)

High ranking bureaucrats of the Japanese Government usually continue to have materially happy lives if they resign as elites endowed with state power by law.

They can get higher positions in various public organizations or private companies in their second life until complete retirement from the society.

However, it is one-way career. Unlike the many U.S., governmental positions secured for private citizens to be nominated by the President, there are fewer rooms for ordinary citizens to be nominated for executive posts in the Japanese Government. It is almost MUST to pass a civil-servant examination before or immediately after graduation of a university if you want to start a career in the Government as an executive trainee.

And, most of ex-executives or ex-high-ranking officials of the Japanese Government have traditionally never expressed their personal views on public matters to the general public.

But, today, partially due to a great split among Japanese people on key issues such as economic globalization, the US War on Terror, and an ever growing economic tie with China under control of potentially-anti-Japanese Chinese Communist Party, the traditional Japanese social system is undergoing a great change, giving more liberty and chances for personal activities to those who would otherwise just keep silence after retirement as elites of the Government even if they had grave complaints about the Government policy.

Indeed, if an ex-elite of the Chinese Government writes his complaint about the Government policy, he will be surely arrested secretly and severely punished secretly by the Chinese Government and the Chinese Communist Party.

Truly, there are not many examples among ex-US high-ranking officials who would publicly criticize the US Government, exposing concrete data and materials to the public, even if they have grave complaints about the Government policy. (There are some ex-CIA officials discussing the 9/11 Terror related problems in their publication, though.)

So, it is interesting to read blogs ex-elite officials of the Japanese Government write for whatever purpose on the Internet.

It is a great practice of democracy you cannot find in China at all; and it is a great personal challenge you cannot find in the U.S. whose society is as a whole so much divided between European Americans and African Americans (et al.) or the rich and the non-rich.


It is very rare even in Japan that a politician opens a blog and accepts free comments from the public.

In most cases, eccentric citizens or members of opposite organizations (mostly disguised or pretending to be an ordinary citizen) would attack a politician as soon as they find any mistakes or careless remarks in an article he or she has written in his/her personal blog.

In such a case, hundreds of attacking comments are directed to such a blog from darkness of the Internet per day, per hour, or so.

Most of politicians who have experienced such attacks would stop using their blogs or at least stop accepting comments from viewers.

So, it is very interesting that Ms. Satsuki Katayama, a lawmaker and ex-executive of the Ministry of Finance, has been coping with such comment-attacks to her blog.

It is also interesting that she is the only female member of the Diet (Japanese Parliament) who has ever been under direct attack at her personal blog while accepting such comments from the general public.

Apart from her political position, in terms of humanity and ability, it is noteworthy to see her personally managing, protecting, and leveraging her blog under indecent comment-attacks which are focused on some delicate expressions she used in her blog and intended to deny her whole personality and make her fail in the next election.

You can see her profile in the following:
For 2000,

For 2001 (she might have a Bolivian connection...),

For 2004,

For 2005,

For 2006,


Mr. Hiroshi Kumagaya was an ex-elite-bureaucrat in the central Government of Japan.

He changed his career to be elected as a national lawmaker between 1977 and 2003, while nominated for a cabinet minister sometimes.

Since his failure in election in 2003 against the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, he has not been engaged in the mainstream of national politics, though he has been writing a personal blog for many years.

( )

His recent argument is on the Chinese militarism.

He expects China to continue to make every effort to be a military superpower.

So, the recent great earthquake in China gives a big shock to him, too, since it can be a sign of this Era.

Mr. Hiroshi Kumagaya also seems to be wary of European and American aggressive invasion of the Japanese money market.

A Diet member who now holds an electoral power base in the election district where Mr. Kumagaya had been once voted for is Ms. Satsuki Katayama, as described above.


So far I know, there is only one ex-Japanese ambassador who is operating his own blog on the Internet for the purpose of promoting a regime change in Japan.

Bureaucrats of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan are generally regarded as most conservative elites in the Japanese society. But, Mr. Naoto Amaki is a very exceptional person, though he now seems to completely retire from an official life.

Since he once served as a Japanese envoy in an Islamic state, he takes a very critical attitude to Israel in articles he often writes in his blog.

( )

There are some Japanese who are really interesting in Israel, whether friendly or critically.

However, one of reasons I have to pay attention to Mr. Amaki’s blog is that his blog ranks higher among hundreds of Japanese blogs related to politics.

His blog is currently ranked as No.10 with tens of thousands of visits per week.

( )

I don’t know what organization(s) supports him to systematically boost the rating of his blog; but this is the only case that an ex-elite bureaucrat of Japan is achieving something among ordinary citizens, though in the cyber space.

Anyway, as long as the ex-ambassador is writing his blog in Japanese instead of English, the Japanese Government would not mind much about his criticism.


Now, EEE Reporter has nothing to do with any ex-high-ranking officials of Japan.

And, one of EEE-Reporter’s recent main concerns is as follows unlike any ex-high-ranking officials in Japan:

When Guatemala signed the Peace Accords in 1996, ending a 36-year civil conflict that left over 200,000 people dead and hundreds of thousands more maimed and internally displaced, the label of “post-conflict country” was officially bestowed on the country….

The homicide rate in Guatemala was 35 per 100,000 people, compared to 5.7 per 100,000 in the United States

Using this classification, the IDB estimates that violence in Latin America costs the region an estimated 14.2 percent of GDP. While data specific to Guatemala for all of the aforementioned cost categories is scarce, per the table below, the economic costs of crime (not just gang violence) in Guatemala in 1999 were estimated to be 565.4 million dollars, with violent crime exerting a more costly toll than non-violent crime12. It is estimated that firms in Guatemala suffer average losses of about $5,500 annually due to crime…

Only top elites of the Japanese Government seem to have any non-nonsense chances to discuss frankly about global issues with US high-ranking officials in any fields.

And this Guatemala issue is what I want them to discuss with American counterparts.

It is because it is a good example of failure of CIA in the Era before the War on Terror.

I mean that the War in Iraq seems very likely to become a 36-year conflict that will leave over 200,000 people dead.

Japanese bureaucrats and ex-bureaucrats should make an effort not to make Iraq another Guatemala.

(I heard the news that Mrs. Clinton has won overwhelmingly in West Virginia.

This Presidential race might result in a miracle eventually in November.

But, an Angel told me several months ago that it was 2012 that would count.

What do you want to contribute to the world in 2012?

Writing a blog like somebody? Oh, no! Better go to Hawaii and Indonesia for holy romance and advance to Chicago, since there are full of bloggers in Japan, Mlles.)

1Ki 6:11 And the word of the LORD came to Solomon, saying,

1Ki 6:12 Concerning this house which thou art in building, if thou wilt walk in my statutes, and execute my judgments, and keep all my commandments to walk in them; then will I perform my word with thee, which I spake unto David thy father:

1Ki 6:13 And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake my people Israel.

1Ki 6:14 So Solomon built the house, and finished it.

Unless Natural Disasters and Heroes Should Arise

(Tokyo, Japan)

Unless Natural Disasters and Heroes Should Arise

(les catastrophes naturelles et des héros)

It is cloudy and cold around Tokyo this morning as if the weather is sick and ill; and thus I have switched on an electric fan heater.

If you do not know the pain of having a disease, you cannot see the glory of the God appearing through the disease.

Do not trust very healthy people, since except some pious people they cannot love the weak and the poor until they die or get victimized by a cyclone or an earthquake.

(But do not try to commit a suicide like a member of the Japanese Self Defense Forces who tried to commit a suicide by disembowelment before the entrance of the Diet [Parliament] Building in Tokyo during the official visit of the Chinese President last week.)


In the early morning of May 3, 2008, a great cyclone hit southern Myanmar, a country becoming another North Korea under strong influence of China.

Before the news reached me, I was writing the EEE Reporter blog with the picture of the rising earth over the horizon of the moon.

It was also when I was gravely concerned with the situation in Tibet, since a week before the cyclone the Olympic Torch relay had been performed in Nagano City, Japan, though I did not stand against it.

At 3:30 p.m. on May 12, Tokyo time, a great earthquake hit southern China, near Tibet. It was just one hour after I had posted the EEE Reporter blog with the picture of the rising earth over the horizon of the moon.

It was also two days after the visiting Chinese President completed his official visit to Japan and the Horyuji Temple in Nara, though I did not stand against it.

Indeed, I went to the Tokyo Imperial Meiji Shrine on May 4 before the real scale of the Myanmar cyclone damages were understood and reported by the Media, telling you that a miracle would happen.

Then, for a week, I was waiting for the official visit of the Chinese President to Japan to be completed peacefully. Almost immediately after his leave from Japan, the miracle happened, since the great earthquake did not hit Tokyo but hit a region near Tibet in China, though Tokyo is scientifically said to be faced with a possible occurrence of a great earthquake at any time.

The cyclone took more than 50,000 lives, probably 100,000 in Myanmar.

The earthquake took more than 10,000 lives, probably 20,000 in China.

However, if a great earthquake hit Tokyo, 60,000 to 120,000 might be killed according to some estimation.

In my position, I like to say that as I stood against neither Olympic Torch relays in Nagano nor the official visit of the Chinese President to Tokyo and Nara, neither a great cyclone nor a great earthquake hit Japan.

Though one Japanese journalist was killed in Myanmar in the last fall and hundreds of Tibetans were killed in these months in Tibet or China, I am gravely sorry for those possible 120,000 victims fallen there in these weeks.

And, in between these tragedies, I really went and worshipped at the great shrine in Tokyo built for the Emperor Meiji and the Japanese race.

This is my testimony on the cyclone in Myanmar and the earthquake in Southern China near Tibet.


When the Great Sumatra Tsunami occurred in late 2004, I was bewildered at why only Myanmar could avoid the tragedy, though all the other countries, mostly Islamic nations, faced with the Bay of Bengal or the Indian Ocean suffered tens of thousands of casualties.

Now, three years later, the Buddhist country was so hit with tens of thousands of casualties.

Since the Great Sumatra Tsunami occurred in late 2004, Muslim insurgents and terrorists hiding between Indonesia and Pakistan have abandoned their violent plans to attack mainland America, as Japan wishes.

As these great cyclone and earthquake have so happened, Chinese Communist Party should abandon its strategies to control Myanmar, continue the occupation of Tibet, and give any threat to security of Japan and Taiwan.

This is my warning to the Chinese Communist Party who still continues to attack the Tokyo Yasukuni Shrine where fallen soldiers of the Empire of Japan were enshrined, showing their limit of wisdom and fatal inability to understand the religion of the Japanese people.

(Nobody is allowed to attack and humiliate any fallen Japanese soldiers enshrined in any shrine who were mobilized by the Empire of Japan, since the Era of Western attempt to colonize the world is yet to be ended as proven by the death of Princess Diana in 1997.)

SECTION III: Report On Secret Tour to Lhasa

A Japanese husband and wife visited Lhasa, Tibet, without official permission from the Chinese authority in 2004.

They posted the record of their difficult traveling to the holy capital of Tibet on the Internet, though in Japanese.

( )

In short, the Japanese secret traveler to Tibet wrote that the faith in the Buddhism of Tibetans is true and genuine.

Though the Chinese policemen, in uniform or civilian clothes, are everywhere in Tibet and around Lhasa, it is impossible for Chinese communists to fully control the mind and heat of Buddhist Tibetans.

The United Nations should admit the right of Tibetans to join it as a nation.


The God chose Joan of Arc to save France from the invading English.

But, at that time, descendants of ancient Israelites who came to France following the Romans hundreds years ago must have been living there, too.

Those descendants of ancient Israelites must have had to fight against the aggressor and invaders from the Great Britain.

The God could have chosen any one of those Judaists or Israelites instead of Joan of Arc.

But, He chose a Christian girl in order to expose sins and wrongdoings of the Catholic Church who fatally let her down eventually while saving France and thus securing any good legacy of the Roman Empire.

This is a grave fact, since if Joan of Arc had been an Israelite, there would not have been the holocaust in the 20th century in Germany, since Judaists must have been thanked by continental Europeans, including Germans, for so long since the beginning of the Modern Age in Europe though it may seem too hypothetical.

Anyway, Judaists, including American Judaists today, seem to have lost an ability to listen to God since the end of the medieval times.

That may be why the Rothschild clan has recently unduly bothered the Japanese Government through their dark scheme to purchase more shares of a certain utility company holding a major electric infrastructure in Japan.


That is all for today.

It is still cloudy and cold around Tokyo.

However, since Christians have been put under a holy trial since the September 11, 2001, earthquakes, tsunamis, and cyclones have also tested Muslims, Buddhists, and Communists.

And, I wonder why people in the world, especially Japanese, would not in earnest start to think about their birth and death, fates, and relationships with God, the Creator of the Universe and human fates.

Study Joan of Arc, if you can.

Saint Joan of Arc
by Mark Twain

When we set about accounting for a Napoleon or a Shakespeare or a Raphael or a Wagner or an Edison or other extraordinary person, we understand that the measure of his talent will not explain the whole result, nor even the largest part of it; no, it is the atmosphere in which the talent was cradled that explains; it is the training which it received while it grew, the nurture it got from reading, study, example, the encouragement it gathered from self-recognition and recognition from the outside at each stage of its development: when we know all these details, then we know why the man was ready when his opportunity came…

Be a hero or a heroine of this Era, since I have been observing the cyclone and the earthquake in addition to the tsunami and the 9/11 Terror.

(As Japan is expected to experience a regime change in the near future, there are many covert political plots and conspiracies of various scales going on.

All I can tell you is just wait and see as I am observing the global news.

It is because your days are yet to come.

That’s is why I am talking about Joan of Arc instead of Mrs. Clinton or Ms. Rice.)

Luk 5:13 And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.

Luk 5:14 And he charged him to tell no man: but go, and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

Luk 5:15 But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.

Luk 5:16 And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.

(Tokyo, Japan)


(Est-Jeanne d'Arc un rêveur romantique?)

There will be no female President of China in the near future.

There will be no female President of Russia in the near future.

There will be no female President of North Korea in the near future.

But, who will be the first female Prime Minister of Japan?


Last night, to my surprise, Mr. Heizo Takenaka, a Japanese economist and retired politician who exercised strong power as a cabinet minister of the Koizumi Administration a few years ago, made a TV appearance last night from a Tokyo TV station.

After the TV program, I did a little job and went to bed to dream an interesting dream in which Japanese politicians and a female TV news caster appeared though I was very much struggling as is usual in dreams.

And, around this noon of Monday, I checked some blogs written or hosted by Japanese journalists, critics, politicians, and so on.


Last night, I happened to remember that I recently bought a Japanese book in which Joan of Arc (1412-1431) of France and Rennyo (1415-1499), a notable monk of the Japanese Buddhism, are compared or together discussed as the figures who put an end to the Middle Ages to pave the way for the Modern Age, each in Europe and Japan.

And, around this noon of Monday, I checked some contents in the Japanese book titled “Joan of Arc and Rennyo.”


The recent failures by a French female presidential-election candidate and a US female presidential contender must be telling a need to study Joan of Arc.

So, I checked some on Joan of Arc:
(1) Mark Twain

Very few people know that Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) wrote a major work on Joan of Arc. Still fewer know that he considered it not only his most important but also his best work. He spent twelve years in research and many months in France doing archival work and then made several attempts until he felt he finally had the story he wanted to tell. He reached his conclusion about Joan's unique place in history only after studying in detail accounts written by both sides, the French and the English.

Because of Mark Twain's antipathy to institutional religion, one might expect an anti-Catholic bias toward Joan or at least toward the bishops and theologians who condemned her. Instead one finds a remarkably accurate biography of the life and mission of Joan of Arc told by one of this country's greatest storytellers. The very fact that Mark Twain wrote this book and wrote it the way he did is a powerful testimony to the attractive power of the Catholic Church's saints. This is a book that really will inform and inspire.

(2) Record of Trial of Joan of Arc

Question: Will you swear to speak the truth upon those things which are asked you concerning the faith, which you know?

Joan: Concerning my father and my mother, and what I have done since I took the road to France, I will gladly swear to tell the truth. But concerning my revelations from God, these I have never told or revealed to anyone, save only to Charles, my King. And I will not reveal them to save my head.

It is said when Joan, at the age of 13, saw some sun rays coming to her over a church in a neighborhood, her mind opened to faith. She then heard voices of Angels.

Indeed, the spiritual gap between Joan of Arc and contemporary female politicians must be desperately wide.

You cannot reach the moon by using ladders.

The Catholic Church in the early 15th century looked like a mass of ladders, while Joan of Arc was invited, beyond time and space, to a Japanese moon explorer now flying on an orbit around the moon.


The Chinese President visited the Horyuji Temple in Nara Prefecture, Japan, before going back to Beijing yesterday or so.

But, the Dalai Lama didn’t when he recently visited Japan only to see the wife of former Prime Minister Mr. Shinzo Abe at the Narita Airport near Tokyo.

The Horyuji Buddhist Temple is truly one of the best national treasures of Japan.

Whenever I saw a genius among Japanese, I felt like seeing the same intellectual structure as that the Temple exhibits.

It is not a replica of any existing temples in China or Korea.

Even Chinese communist-party leaders would discover what their civilization could not reach and maintain 1,400 years ago when they see the Horyuji Temple today.

And, remember it is just 850 years ago that the construction of Notre Dame de Paris began.

That is why Japanese researchers can handle duly Joan of Arc and female presidential contenders in France and America.

(That is all for today.

Have a nice day.

And, have a good dream if not in love with a politician…)

Gal 5:12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.

Gal 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

Gal 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Gal 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

Gal 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

Blogs and Money for Japanese Politicians

(Tokyo, Japan)

Blogs and Money for Japanese Politicians

(L'Internet et des hommes politiques au Japon)

Relatively young politicians in Japan today are trying to effectively use the Internet.

In older days when reconciliation among interested parties was covertly handled behind the scene, the general public could not see actual state of political life of individual politicians.

But, along with globalization of economy and reformation of the political system in Japan, relationships between stakeholders in the society and politicians have changed.

Making frequent TV appearances and gaining higher appraisal on the Internet seem to become more important for politicians, even though they cannot easily gain overwhelming popularity through their self-expression like in the case of former Prime Minister Mr. Jyunichiro Koizumi.

Anyway, a huge sum of the national budget is at their hands. It might be a kind of duty for voters to check what lawmakers write and present in their Home Pages and blogs.

For example, I can see how an agent from the US Embassy in Tokyo approaches a young and hopeful lawmaker of the Diet.


Or, I can see how a popular and young Diet member rewards his 11 secretaries for their contribution to daily political activities.


And, in a rare case, I can also observer how an ex-bureaucrat lawmaker is fighting against conventional or covert community in her electorate.

The problem she is now faced with looks like what her predecessors in the constituency must have solved before her election but conveniently left as it was, though it seems to involve a delicate moral issue.


These examples happen to represent three elements of politics: Information, Money, and Human Relationships.

But, basically, every politician would do anything, if not unlawful, to be elected and reelected over and over again. And, after being elected, Japanese lawmakers must live on any funds they can collect personally and "public subsidies to political parties" the source of which is the national budget of Japan.

As the latter is originally part of tax money Japanese people have paid to the Government, the general public must keep an eye on how each politician is working and contributing to the nation.

It is also important to watch their relationships with any dubious figures who, though ordinary civilians, are attracted by big money a politician can collect or handle.

For example, the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) has recently received four billion yen ($40 million) from the Government from its yearly allocation of 16 billion yen, according to Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications of Japan.

( )

From this pooled money, each lawmaker of LDP receives his or her share according to allotment of the fund to each prefecture where he or she belongs to.


And, in most cases, each Diet member seems to receive around 15 million yen ($150,000) per year, which they can use almost without restrictions so long as the money is spent for political activities.

This is a state and reality of the Japanese political community.

And, if the mainstream media is not so effective in reporting these details and facts, ordinary citizens like me have to put their efforts to access a Home Pages or a blog of a politician in question or in the spotlight for some reason.

Indeed, present democracy in Japan really needs the Internet well managed and supervised.

Truly, the U.S. is also proving its effect.

But, can Chinese politicians stand this trial of democracy?

Rev 5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

Rev 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

Rev 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

Rev 5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.
