"Honestly Dear, I Was A Fool"
I was so, since you looked so.
SECTION I: A PRIVATE FUNCTION
I couldn't help but laugh as I saw the notice (at the entrace to Marriott Hotel).
I don’t think that the Bilderberg Group can control the world.
They have not such a capacity and a capability in addition to necessary support from a very majority of people.
They are rather making a special effort to make themselves look more influential than they really are. For this purpose, they are selling the Bilderberg Conspiracy Theory here and there, part of which seems to be that 9/11 Terror Conspiracy Theory.
The number of officials of the US Federal Government is 2.7 million; and local governments in the U.S. have total 1.6 million.
(In Japan, one million and three million, roughly respectively, though the population ratio is 1 to 2.5. between Japan and the U.S.)
If Bilderbergers need to control one percent of top bureaucrats in America and the costs for each official are 100,000 dollars per year, they need $4 billion (100,000 multiplied by 40,000) per year.
They can afford the costs; but they cannot handle complains of greedy officials, wanting and requesting more returns or money, the number of whom would be thousands.
If Bilderbergers start to control the world at their will by use of money and political power, the situation would surely spiral out of their control and their hand. There would be thousands of betrayers and tippers emerging from government agencies, law enforcement office, the media, service providers, and subcontractors.
And, tens of millions of citizens in the U.S., Japan, and EU will be definitely provoked, since most of them are taxpayers working for low wages.
But if the Bilderberg Conference is just a place for super-rich people to satisfy their vanity and enjoy a fantasy that they are Lords and Masters of the world, all we have to do is just to prevent any conspiracy theory harming honor and authority of our Governments, since such a theory leads to a moral and cultural crisis.
(In a well concocted maze-puzzle to find any scientific and administrative proof of the 9/11 Conspiracy, enormous manpower has been wasted which otherwise could have been applied to real and effective investigation and pursuit of any business and political crimes that are taking off around daily lives of ordinary and poor citizens.....The 9/11 Conspiracy Theory is a decoy...But, of course, JFK, Princess Diana, and JFK Jr. can be victims of horrible conspiracies....)
That is why EEE Reporter is against the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory and the Bilderberger Monopoly Theory, since they cannot be so smart as the subprime loan-related losses they have suffered are not what they planned to enjoy as a proof of their power.
But, EU as a whole, with thousands of experts and professionals still living on a colonialists paradigm, must be doing some conspiracy leveraging the global warming and focusing on CO2, in order to keep their dominance over Africans, Asians, and American Natives.
SECTION II: EPISODES IN 1970’s
In August 1973, the then South Korean dissident leader Mr. Kim Dae-jung, later president of South Korea and a Nobel Peace Prize winner, was kidnapped by South Korean agents from a hotel in Tokyo due to a threat he had posed to the quasi-military government of South Korea then, though his life was reportedly saved by a secret interference by the US Government including Mr. Henry Kissinger then in the White House or State Department.
(In 2007, following an internal inquiry, South Korea's National Intelligence Service (NIS) has admitted that its precursor, the Korean Central Intelligence Agency (KCIA), undertook the kidnapping, saying it had at least tacit backing from then-leader Park Chung-hee…
In December 1974, Eisaku Sato was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, the first as a Japanese. He served as prime minister between 1964 and 1972.
In July 1976, Kakuei Tanaka, the prime minister of Japan between 1972 and 1974, was arrested facing a charge of the Lockheed payoff.
(Then, on February 6, 1976, the vice chairman of the Lockheed Corporation told a United States Senate subcommittee that Tanaka had accepted $1.8 million in bribes during his term as prime minister, in return for having Japan's parastatal airlines purchase Lockheed L-1011 aircraft (the Lockheed bribery scandals).
Although Henry Kissinger tried to stop the details from making their way to the Japanese government, fearing that it would harm the two countries' security relationship, Miki pushed a bill through the Diet that requested information from the Senate.
On July 27, Tanaka was arrested: he was released in August on a ¥200m (US$690,000) bond…
In October 1979, then former president of South Korea Park Chung-hee was assassinated by the then director of Korean Central Intelligence Agency (KCIA) in Seoul, the capital of South Korea.
These episodes around Japan really overtly influenced mentality of Japanese politicians and the media.
Particularly, the then younger generations among Japanese politicians, including precently ex-Prime Ministers Mr. Jyunichiro Koizumi and Mr. Yoshiro Mori, and the media must have been deeply influenced, too.
That is why the Bilderberg Group joined by Mr. Henry Kissinger as a major player arouses the strong notice among Japanese concerned with US diplomatic and defense policies, financial power, CIA operations, and behaviors of super-rich people.
But, of course, Mr. Henry Kissinger was just a US military officer stationed in Germany after WWII, though he was born in Germany.
History should be respected more than the Bilderberg Conference members.
Some of reasons I have been writing a blog anonymously are as follows:
1) An issue of due process – You go to a market and deliver words given by the God to people. In this case, should you follow any related law a government stipulated or an instruction the God gave to you? Depending on the purpose and intention or the nature of an act, an appropriate due process is required. And, a precedent example is that Jesus Christ did not first make clear His identification before delivering His holy and benevolent words to people in a market place.
2) A dominant force – It is said that there is surely a very powerful and influential group of people in the U.S. They even try to decide who a next US President will or should be. It is very natural in any era in history that super-rich people got associated and gathered to make any arrangement to increase their wealth and power. But, history also tells that ups and downs of any super-rich clans are the way of the world. Yet, out of special respect for such a dominant force, an opportune notice of identification of EEE Reporter to be given to the general public must be considered from a human point of view, since miracles can happen at any time.
3) The blog as a battlefield – I assume that there are three million people in Japan and the U.S. who cannot totally accept the contents and claims presented and extended in this blog. What’s more, there are one billion Catholics globally who still accept a teaching that Judas should be hated while Jesus Christ ordered to love your enemy. I have no need to have my name cursed by one billion Catholics every day. This blog is directed to the European Christianity, too. A true religious war, involving no personal profits at all, must have its own code of conduct or rule on identification of parties in mission and commission, since it involves no personal profits. Besides, every US soldier is fighting actually on a street in Iraq and Afghanistan anonymously.
And, it is ultimately a matter of God. Ask God for more details.
Otherwise, I might have to say in some of these days to somebody, “Honestly dear, I was such a fool as to write a blog for whatever reason.”
(So, I am listening to "Hamabe-no-Uta [Walking on a Beach so Gently]" to forget the blog for a while:
Mat 13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
Mat 13:48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
Mat 13:49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
Mat 13:50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

THE VICTORY TO BE CELEBRATED
(As African Americans have won the Democratic Primaries, I would like to celebrate their victory, listening to "Louisiana Mama," since New Orleans is in Louisiana…
The best things in life are free. No, actually not, since such things can even come with big money so lucratively offered, say, as campaign finance.
But, they are sometimes under authority provisionally at the hands of the Devil.
That is why I am highly concerned with money Presidential Candidate Mr. Barack Obama took in so far, while so many poor Americans have no big money.
If without big money, one million dollars per day, Mr. Barack Obama could not have won the primaries, it should be money but not his faith in God that has set him up as the winner in the Democratic Primaries.
Meanwhile, Obama is also continuing to rake in money. He's reportedly bringing in about $1 million (688,00) per day in donations, with Clinton only raising about half that.
What I want to say is that Mr. Barack Obama is not a Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ taught and saved people by being poor Himself. In contrast, Mr. Barack Obama has become a winner in a political race, highly relying on big money, that is, $1 million per day.
Mr. Barack Obama should have rejected to receive such big money per day, if he wants to be a politician following Jesus Christ.
Now you will not be surprised if you find that he loves Bilderbergers more than poor Americans living on the streets in Chicago, Los Angeles, or New Orleans.
But, Arabs were reportedly surprised.
Obama told the influential annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Council (Aipac): "Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided."
His comments appalled Palestinians who see occupied East Jerusalem as part of a future Palestinian state…
Obama also had harsh words for Iran, vowing to work to "eliminate" the threat it posed to security in the Middle East and around the globe…
Indeed, it looks like many Japanese, including those who have abundant and long experiences in political circles and government office, are nowadays wondering what is happening in the U.S., since Mr. Barack Obama has defeated Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Presidential Primaries.
No more racial discrimination is America? African Americans are now enjoying the middle-class life with the same ratio of European Americans, among their corresponding racial groups? The crime rate among African Americans is now equal to that among European Americans? What change has happened in the United States while the second largest economy Japan is missing it?
That is why I am writing today’s article in this manner.
I am doing so, since much more people in the world must be wondering than in Japan.
The author of the novel "Invisible Man," Ralph Ellison, wrote in 1975:
More and more blacks, apparently, are now beginning to see the black experience as an American experience, and to recognize that it is conditions in this country rather than our "African heritage" which must dictate the values by which we live. They are also corning to realize that such values must he primarily concerned with perfecting our mastery of the cultural and intellectual tools of modern American society.
As this realization sets in, the growth of a large middle-income group of black Americans could emerge as a momentous event in American history. For the first time since slavery, large numbers of Afro-Americans will have the financial ability and leisure time necessary to utilize libraries, bookstores, magazines, theaters, opera houses and other cultural and intellectual apparatus and institutions. The test is whether they do so.
From a historical point of view, the phenomenon of the "Obama’s Rise" can be handled in the above context, since the author of “Invisible Man” has a universal sense and spirit to present part of truth in humanity.
Nonetheless, as I once wrote, it is President Mr. George W. Bush who virtually paved the way for Mr. Barack Obama’s success, since he appointed Mr. Colin Powell and Ms. Condoleezza Rice as Secretary of State.
It is no wonder at all that African Americans who account for 26% of effective Democrats came to in real think about acting in a body and choosing one of their fellows as the official candidate for the U.S. President.
And, non African-Americans but also non-European Americans among the Democratic Party accounting for 32% could split; hence, one third, namely other 11% of effective Democrats should vote for Mr. Obama.
Among European American Democrats, with a share of 42% among effective Democrats, I suppose 15 per 42 must have voted for Mr. Obama, for various liberal or radical reasons, thus giving 52 (= 26 + 11 + 15) percent votes to Mr. Obama, which made him prevail over Mrs. Clinton with 48% of total votes and supports. It is 52 to 48.
Yet, it is true that money makes a white a black and a black a white.
Black Americans Split Into Rich and Poor
More and more there are two kinds of African Americans –- the ones with education and jobs and those with neither. The problem is that the more “color blind” blacks become, the more they gravitate toward whites and away from their brethren at the bottom of the economic ladder…
The survey also found that pessimism about economic prospects has grown significantly among blacks. Fewer than half of those polled, 44 percent said they expected life to get better. Twenty years ago, 57 percent had said they thought life would improve…
African Americans of all stripes are highly patriotic and concerned about a concentration of economic power as are whites. They share the general belief in the benefits of hard work -- and are equally admiring of those who acquire wealth through hard work…
But Jesus Christ is simply telling to give money, whether obtained through hard work, to poor people for free.
It is not the acquiring of wealth through hard work but the giving of money having been so acquired to poor people that should be admired.
The very difference between a Political Revolution and a Religious Revolution really lies here.
A political revolution, of which Mr. Obama can be part at best, is far less revolutionary than a religious revolution in which Mr. Obama himself cannot continue to be rich since he has to give all of his money to poor neighbors.
That is why I am telling you that nothing drastic has happened in the U.S. that would transcend the paradigm presented by Ralph Ellison in 1975, since Mr. Obama looks like going to befriend Bilderbergers than followers of Jesus Christ who must be always poor per day.
(In contrast in a sense, the most popular politician in Japan is still former Prime Minister Mr. Jyunichiro Koizumi.
Even top career women in Japan would not hesitate at all to admit his extraordinary popularity based on which some elite ladies entered the political arena actually.
The Former Prime Minister was once nicknamed “The Lion Premier.”
But an image I have had of a US President is a lion since I saw the face of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in a film related to Pearl Harbor Day very long time ago.
Isa 65:25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.

Who do you think has the most reliable data on crude oil reserves in the world?
It is the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
"Companies whose stocks are publicly traded on U.S. stock markets are required by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to report their holdings of domestic and international proved reserves, following specific guidelines."
- International Energy Outlook 2007 -
Indeed, it is no wonder that hedge funds have jumped at any promising chance in the global oil market with authentic data in hand.
SECTION I: OIL AND A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE
Mr. Barack Obama seems to be determined to handle the challenge of future oil depletion and environmental problems.
Set America on Path to Oil Independence
- Obama's plan will reduce oil consumption by at least 35 percent, or 10 million barrels per day, by 2030. This will more than offset the equivalent of the oil we would import from OPEC nations in 2030...
Improve Energy Efficiency 50 Percent by 2030
- Set National Building Efficiency Goals: Barack Obama will establish a goal of making all new buildings carbon neutral, or produce zero emissions, by 2030. He'll also establish a national goal of improving new building efficiency by 50 percent and existing building efficiency by 25 percent over the next decade to help us meet the 2030 goal.
In 2030, according to some data, the crude oil reserves under the ground of the U.S. will be just depleted due to prodigal use of oil by citizens and consumers.
SECTION II: OIL AND A CHALLENGING HERO
Mr. Ralph Nadar looks quite right, sound, and sane in focusing on the money game in the crude oil market.
In an ironic twist, the major price determinant has moved from OPEC (having only 40% of the world production) and the oil companies to the speculators in the commodities markets. What goes on in the essentially unregulated New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX)—without Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) enforced margin requirements, and, unlike your personal purchases, untaxed—is now the place that leads to your skyrocketing gasoline bills. OPEC and the Big Oil companies reap the benefits and say that it’s not their doing, but that of the speculators. Gives new meaning to “passing the buck.”
Deborah Fineman, president of Mitchell Supreme Fuel Co. in Orange, New Jersey, summed up the scene: “Energy markets have been dictated for too long by hedge funds and speculators, who artificially manipulate the numbers for their own benefit. The current market isn’t based on the sound principles of supply and demand but it is being rigged by companies and speculators who are jacking up prices for their own greed...”
Imagine, our government is letting your price for gasoline and home heating oil be determined by a gambling casino on Wall Street called NYMEX. The people need regulatory protection from speculators and an excess profits tax on Big Oil…
As I wrote a few days ago, the American material life is supported by the high level of NYSE Indexes; the Dow Jones Index is backed by hedge funds; and the hedge funds are bolstered by the ever increasing or high-level-sustaining oil prices as a replacement for subprime loan business.
SECTION III: OIL AND ENERGY INNOVATION
Therefore, unless crude oil prices collapse, Americans can continue materially very rich life.
And, such a collapse is only expected to happen, say, 20 years later or so.
It is because at the time technical or scientific innovation will offer revolutionary systems, methods, and tools that can eliminate the use of crude oil as a major energy source for electricity, heating, or fuels for engines.
But, before discussing technical innovation and revolution, let's see the present situations and also results of analyses and studies on global oil reserves.
SECTION IV: "International Energy Outlook 2007"
According to the above document, the world oil reserves presently confirmed or estimated are as follows:
(Click for a larger view)
According to the above document, some changes should be taken into account when analyzing crude oil reserves in each country.
(Click for a larger view)
Though these changes or necessary modification are yet to be included, the reserve-production ratio or the number of years until exhaustion of petroleum for each country is as follows;
(Click for a larger view)
The analysis in the document resulted in the estimation that "the major oil-producing countries of OPEC have maintained r/p ratios of 20 to 100 years (Table 5)."
Therefore, if mankind can develop new energy technology in 20 years, an Energy Armageddon can be avoided.
However, as more and more people will become aware of this tight situation in the coming decade, more fuel will be added to the fever in the oil market.
And, the CO2 Conspiracy will make the situation more complicated, since it is being pushed and operated with some super-rich Europeans’ intent to dominate over Africans and Asians in the 21st century and beyond.
Anyway, look at these three tables and search for truth, since this is the year for the US Presidential Election.
Just to make sure, let’s confirm the regional distribution of crude oil reserves:
(Click for a larger view)
The Middle East was, is, and continues to be the largest oil production center in the world.
That is why the United States has taken a military measure, sending troops to Iraq, leveraging Israel to be a political stakeholder in the region, and playing a role as an guardian of Arabs against the Islamic lone wolf Iran.
That is also why the EU, still relying on the conventional colonialist paradigms, has taken a quasi-scientific/greedy-financial, complex measure called CO2 Reduction, abusing the concerns about the global warming which is not a kind of killer virus at all, trying to brainwash global citizens with a fear of CO2 and thus suppress development of economy and growth of society of Arab, African and Asian countries.
That is why true democracy should be introduced to Islamic countries without resorting to military means, and the CO2 Conspiracy should be conquered with scientific correctness as well as a change in historical paradigm.
(It is cloudy all over the Kanto Plain in which Tokyo is situated. It is not hot at all. The temperature is around 18 degrees C or 64 F. So, it feels like being in New York.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Bill Gates is going to leave the Microsoft management office once for all this month.
Yet, President Mr. Obama, if so inaugurated, should order Microsoft Corporation to employ more poor Americans as its revenue is $51 billion in 2007 as I am using Windows OS now.
But, you had better look for another type of hero who might not look like Mr. Obama or Mr. Gates at all, while posting a blog as "Trillion Dollar Reporter of God" as the Google Search or Yahoo Search is proving.)
Mar 6:4 But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.
Mar 6:5 And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
Mar 6:6 And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

(Northwest Part of the Kanto Plain, around Tokyo)
HIDDEN MILITARY ISSUES
SECTION I: The Sichuan Great Earthquake
Nuclear Explosion Suspected at Epicenter of the Sichuan Earthquake
Mr. He, a local resident, stated that when the earthquake occurred on May 12, people saw something erupt from the top of a mountain next to the valley, "It looked like toothpaste being squeezed out," said He. "No, it wasn't [magma]. It was these concrete pieces. The eruption lasted about three minutes…"
The thickness of the concrete pieces seemed to match that used in China's underground military bases, according to Boxun's expert….
The expert believes the nuclear explosion was not confined to the underground test area and has caused radiation contamination, stating that in a call to Beijing he recommended authorities accept help from other countries, seal the area, find and provide help to those who had been exposed to contamination during the rescue work, and take emergency measures to prevent water contamination.
International Relief Teams Delayed
After the Sichuan earthquake took place, Beijing did not allow international relief groups to begin rescue efforts until 72 hours later, missing the most crucial window for saving lives….
The only pictures I took in Buddhist temples and presented in this EEE Reporter blog are of Sensouji Temple in Tokyo and Zenkouji Temple in Nagano Prefecture.
And, around Zenkouji Temple, the Olympic Torch Relay was carried out before the Great Sichuan Earthquake and the visit of the Chinese President to Japan. At that time, thousands of Chinese students and youths were mobilized for aggressive demonstration in the Nagano city to overwhelm supporters for the independence of Tibet. Chinese students reportedly acted violently to Tibetans, Japanese supporters, and even Japanese police; but reportedly no one was arrested.
Anyway, isn’t it prophetic?
When EEE Reporter presented pictures of Zenkoji Temple in Nagano City and four thousand Chinese students acted violently swinging their national flags, something terrible could really happen.
Or can you explain why the Great Sichuan Earthquake occurred after the violent demonstrations by Chinese students on the Olympic Torch Relay in Japan and the Chinese President’s visit to Japan?
It is a miracle, though I am extremely sorry for 80,000 victimized Chinese people as well as Tibetans under the Chinese Communist regime or under the non-Buddhist regime.
(It is time to plan a democratic revolution in China, since the earthquake occurred.)
SECTION II: Address to The Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan
Ambassador Mr. J. Thomas Schieffer delivered a very interesting speech in Tokyo, on May 20, 2008.
…Let me begin with this proposition. No potential adversary on earth can stand toe to toe with the United States in a conventional or nuclear confrontation and expect to prevail. This is not to say that America cannot be slowed or even defeated on the battlefield - the lessons of Iraq and Vietnam are painful reminders that conventional and nuclear superiority do not necessarily guarantee victory. But on the whole, the American military has sufficient firepower to defeat any conventional military force in the world…
When it comes to nuclear weapons, the American military has sufficient power to ensure that no potential adversary could prevail in a first strike or realistically believe that they could escape retaliation without unacceptable losses. What gives American forces such power is - in a word - technology. American weapons are the most sophisticated, the most lethal and the most effective on earth. We have spent more on military research and development than any other nation in the world and it has given us a tremendous advantage…
Earlier this year an American B-2 bomber crashed. That one airplane alone cost almost $1.2 billion dollars to build. An American Aegis destroyer capable of firing SM-3 missiles as part of our missile defense capabilities will cost more than $1.2 billion dollars to build. The USS George Washington which will be coming to Japan later this summer cost almost $5 billion dollars and that is without the more than $1 billion dollars that will be the cost of the planes that will fly from it. The total cost of ship and planes together will exceed $6 billion dollars which approaches 15% of the total Japanese military budget. The new Ford class aircraft carriers that will hit the water in 2012 will cost an estimated $8 to $11 billion dollars, which could be in excess of one quarter of the entire Japanese defense budget today. These are staggering numbers…
General Douglas MacArthur famously told cadets at West Point that their mission was simple, "... to win our wars." Never has that simplicity cost more. Today, the modern military must become proficient not only in the strategy of conflict but in the economics of armaments…
As an example, Japan is studying the acquisition of its next generation of fighter. It is hard to imagine a situation in which Japan would be at war without the United States being at its side. If that is so, does it not make sense for Japan and the United States to work together to make sure their respective air assets as complementary as possible? Japan's new fighter should be a force multiplier for each country. That's why we think it is so important for us to look at capabilities and strategies for acquiring that fighter together and not apart. Your decision will have consequences for us and our decisions in return will have consequences for you….
(In Q& A)
What I was trying to say in the speech was, on the issue of F-22s, it's not just Japan that can't buy F-22s from the United States. There's a Congressional prohibition that does not allow the United States to sell F-22s abroad. Having said that, that doesn't mean F-22s can't be in theater. They can certainly be flown by Americans. The point I was trying to make is, it doesn't really make a difference whether there is a Japanese flag or an American flag on that F-22, if it is working in concert with the other planes, and I don't think any one plane will meet the needs of this particular theater…
The United States cannot arrest Mr. Osama bin Laden and other handful of leaders of the terror group hiding in Afghanistan and Pakistan despite seven years or so it has taken, though the U.S. declared an official war on them pouring billions of dollars into related operations.
It is the Great Sumatra Tsunami Disaster causing 220,000 deaths in December 2004, the Great Pakistan Earthquake causing more than 90,000 deaths in October 2005, and the Great Sichuan Earthquake causing more than 80,000 deaths in May 2008 that taught the value of peace and gave warning to leaders of terror organizations and those in power in Pakistan, Indonesia, and China.
In addition, the Great Cyclone Disaster must be now giving warning to those in power in Myanmar, since it took more than 100,000 lives.
On September 11, 2001, the great military and intelligence capability of the U.S. with support from many super-rich people, such as Bilderbergers, could not prevent attacks using four commercial jet planes onto Washington D.C. and New York City.
The United States cannot win God and His Army from Heaven.
And, one another miracle, yet to be identified but coming sooner or later, can simply suppress all the American forces, in my humble view,
SECTION III: Obama Seals Democratic Nomination
Hillary Rodham Clinton maneuvered for the vice presidential spot on his fall ticket without conceding her own defeat…
Obama sealed his nomination, according to The Associated Press tally, based on primary elections, state Democratic caucuses and support from party "superdelegates." It takes 2,118 delegates to clinch the nomination at the convention in Denver this summer, and Obama had 2,144 by the AP count…
Obama drew strength from blacks, and from the younger, more liberal and wealthier voters in many states. Clinton was preferred by older, more downscale voters, and women, of course…
At the same time, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., endorsed the young senator in terms that summoned memories of his slain brothers while seeking to turn the page on the Clinton era.
President Mr. Barack Obama, if so inaugurated, should pledge to arrest Mr. Osama bin Laden and other AlQaeda leaders.
President Mr. Barack Obama, if so inaugurated, should negotiate with China for mutual reduction of military power and especially of nuclear military capability.
President Mr. Barack Obama, if so inaugurated, should reduce armaments to supply funds to support programs for poor Americans.
President Mr. Barack Obama, if so inaugurated, should order withdrawal of some divisions of US Army from Iraq immediately after his swearing-in ceremony early next year.
And, he must appoint a more peace-loving new ambassador to Japan.
Japan and the U.S. are making a positive cooperative effort far high in the sky:
“A team of astronauts have attached a $1bn (£500m) Japanese laboratory to the International Space Station (ISS).
The 16-tonne Kibo lab was delivered by the shuttle Discovery. It will be the station's biggest room, for the study of biomedicine and material sciences.”
But, as there are 680 million starving people on the earth below, I am afraid, a horrible miracle may happen in the International Space Station, which costs $154 billion, someday.
Japan and the U.S. should work on peace and prosperity for all the mankind on the ground rather than flying 400 km above the surface of the earth.
("Sens. John Thune (R-S.D.), Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.), and Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) comment on the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation hearing where billionaire investor George Soros testified today on energy market manipulation."
Indeed, still I have to discuss the Economic and Energy Armageddon.
As a French train hit a school bus killing several children recently, no one can be free from a fate the God pre-determined.
I am saying this, since just the other day I was watching the Discovery Channel or so prersenting a documentary film on Koreans working on introduction of high-speed trains from France, which in fact had been completed four years ago, though Japan’s Shinkansen Train System is more suitable for them.
Truly, even if in a case involving Chinese, Koreans, or French, an anti-Japanese enterprise cannot be overlooked nowadays, since Japan has been responsibly maintaining peace in East Asia after WWII despite difficult political maneuvering against the U.S…)
1Ki 8:64 The same day did the king hallow the middle of the court that was before the house of the LORD: for there he offered burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings: because the brasen altar that was before the LORD was too little to receive the burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings.
1Ki 8:65 And at that time Solomon held a feast, and all Israel with him, a great congregation, from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of Egypt, before the LORD our God, seven days and seven days, even fourteen days.
1Ki 8:66 On the eighth day he sent the people away: and they blessed the king, and went unto their tents joyful and glad of heart for all the goodness that the LORD had done for David his servant, and for Israel his people.

Dow Jones Index, Hedge Funds, and Crude Oil
Apart from my English, some viewers seem to be interested in the Economic Armageddon or the link between the NYSE index, the asset volume of the hedge funds, and the crude-oil price.
Apart from my shaky manipulation of English words, my idea is based on a theory, in this case, the catastrophe theory.
The nature allows a day, a week, a month, and a year to proceed at a fixed pace, respectively. However, any natural or human phenomena will collapse or explode at a certain moment in the middle of the day, the week, the month, of the year when a hidden parameter reaches a certain critical level.
That is why one day suddenly you discover that all your efforts have come to naught or produce such an amount of fruits, even in human relationships or faith in God.
SECTION I: GENERAL RULES IN THE HUMAN SPHERE
You can start business which will grow and advance following general rules in the human world which itself is a system.

As long as a system is alive or functioning effectively, any element within it can increase its volume till it enters the downturn phase. The rise and fall is a rule in the human world.
But, there is another case as follows:

In short, some conditions allow the “volume” to sustain the higher level until the system itself breaks or disappears. It looks like a material life of a very lucky and very rich man. He can hold his big assets until his death, but, of course, not beyond it.
Anyway, those conditions are embodied in the form of, or as the balance between the Sustaining Force and the Downward Force which should include a factor "a" as will be discussed below.
SECTION II: DOW JONES INDUSTRIAL AVERAGE

Now you may wonder if DOW Index follows the rise/decline rule or the rise/upkeep rule.
If you can technically, scientifically and philosophically predict the future trend, it may be very helpful for prevention of the New Great Depression.
But, the hedge fund industry also shows the same growth path:

Now you may wonder if Assets under Management of hedge funds follow the rise/decline rule or the rise/upkeep rule.
SECTION III: War In IRAQ and Index Sustenance
In 2003, the Dow Jones Index might have started to follow the rise/decline rule:

But, it actually held on. The NYSE index rather started to follow the rise/upkeep rule.
You can see the reason below:

In the above figure, the bars show money flow into the hedge fund market and the line graph shows cumulative assets in the market.
You can see that just in 2002 when the US military invasion of Iraq was discussed and speculated, the Dow Index began to fall.
But in 2003 when the US military invasion of Iraq actually took place, the hedge fund market got boosted enough to stop the downturn momentum of the New York Stock Exchange and rather sustained and heaved the Dow Index.
However, this bolstering force by the hedge funds looks like decreasing since 2007 in terms of leveraged buyout.

As the subprime loan market has also collapsed, the hedge funds are now operating in the crude oil market. The oil prices being kicked up, consequently, keep the high-level of funds’ assets which in turn bolsters the Dow Jones Index.

SECTION IV: Catastrophe Theory
“Catastrophe theory, which was originated with the work of the French mathematician René Thom in the 1960s, and became very popular due to the efforts of Christopher Zeeman in the 1970s, considers the special case where the long-run stable equilibrium can be identified with the minimum of a smooth, well-defined potential function (Lyapunov function).
Small changes in certain parameters of a nonlinear system can cause equilibria to appear or disappear, or to change from attracting to repelling and vice versa, leading to large and sudden changes of the behaviour of the system. However, examined in a larger parameter space, catastrophe theory reveals that such bifurcation points tend to occur as part of well-defined qualitative geometrical structures.”
In the following equation,
Y = X**3 + a*X,
Where X**3 = X*X*X,
The value Y will, of course, change with the value X. But this change is very smooth.
But, if the coefficient "a" is also changed, the change of Y along with a change in X will drastically change.
In this case, we can say that the value of "a" is a factor to cause a catastrophe in Y while X smoothly changes as before.
When the Dow Index is Y, the hedge funds assets are "a" rather than X.
When the hedge funds assets are Y, the crude oil price is "a" rather than X.
But, the identity and behaviors of the contents of “a” for each equation representing each "Y–X" relationship are yet to be studied and analyzed before a real catastrophe comes.
That is all for today.
But, remember, the Dow Jones Index supported by hedge funds that are in turn bolstered by the high crude oil price should not be respected.
It is because there must be some hidden parameter “a” for each of them.
And, this "a" can be a key to the Economic Armageddon I discussed yesterday.
But, can wisdom of any super-rich people in the world work to avoid the Armageddon?
Or do they think that they will become more richer after the Economic Armageddon?
Gentlemen, it is Armageddon; there is no future beyond that, though you may try to be a king in the Stone-Age-like world after that.
(Japan’s Prime Minister Mr. Yasuo Fukuda is now in Italy as preparatory operations for G8 Summit to be held in Japan.
But his approval rating is now so low in Japan that the public NHK TV station cannot broadcast it to the general public.
While newspapers and other media have intently reported his approval rating falling down to 20%, the NHK TV news programs have never presented the result of a survey it must have conducted.
What do you think about it, if you are involved in the politics-media-bureaucracy circles? Is our Prime Minister so vulnerable?
The general public is a master and a prime minister is a servant in principle.
That is why I am serving you with all the data above presented in this blog…
Anyway, until the new US President is elected this November, incumbent Japanese Prime Minister Mr. Fukuda will not take any decisive action, in my humble view.)

A SCENARIO OF ECONOMIC ARMAGEDDON
When countries start to try to avoid being victimized by the shadow of economic Armageddon, I am afraid, a real economic Armageddon begins.
Conversely, if they are determined to be a victim rather than a victimizer so as not to make others victims, the real economic Armageddon can be avoided, which I am sure of.
SECTION I: DOLLAR DECLINING
Stocks Love A Strong Dollar
If you're not with me on the bullish dollar stance yet, but are invested in equities, you need to reconsider. Despite conventional wisdom, a weak dollar is NOT beneficial to the stock market. And here's the proof from the Bespoke Investment Group:
"Since 1967, the dollar has had four up cycles and five down cycles. The average return of the S&P 500 during the four up cycles is a gain of 86.6%, which is over five times the average return of 16.4% during dollar declines."
So if you want your stocks to go up (by a wide margin), history shows you should also want the dollar to go up…”
“The American dollar has been declining in value against the euro and several other currencies since 2002, and its devaluation has only accelerated in 2007-08. The dollar lost about 15 percent of its value against the euro in the 12 months ended April 2008.”
“The dollar has fallen nearly 12 percent against the yen and 6 percent against the euro this year. On Wednesday, the dollar traded at 100 yen, a bit stronger than recent 13-year lows. One euro was at $1.5815, slightly below a record high.”
“The dollar hit a three-year low against the yen Friday and is trading at a near all-time low against the euro. And if the Fed keeps slashing interest rates to prop up the economy, it risks further weakening the dollar. ”
In 2001, the dollar accounted for 73% of the world’s total foreign exchange reserves.
In 2007, the dollar accounted for 64%.
Players in the global money market are hedging their assets using types of money other than the dollar.
And there is other argument in the Council on Foreign Relations, ominous for a future trend:
American investors have lately been pouring money into foreign bond funds at a record rate.
SECTION II: US TREASURY BOND OWNERS
The total value of US Treasury bonds held by foreign countries and financial institutes is about $2,520 billion or $2.5 trillion.
Japan and China combined ownes 40% of all, though quality and historical performance of each economy is so different in addition to each contribution to the global peace, as is being proven by the Great Sichuan Earthquake that occurred near the Tibet region.
(Will China sell US Treasury bonds in a large quantity to finance the reconstruction in the earthquake-hit provinces?)
SECTION III: A NIGHTMARE
You can add the CO2 Conspiracy as other factor that makes the scenario more complicated.
But essentially, the issue is that mankind is increasing the amount of money to the extent it cannot control it as I once presented the following figure.
Mankind is increasing the amount of money to the extent it cannot control the violent nature of Mammon as the above figure shows.
Indeed, $15,000 billion dollars mean 15 trillion dollars which however must be globally distributed equally as $2500 per person, since the total population on the earth is six billion.
It is truly deplorable that murder cases are yet to become a thing of the past, even in Japan. And most of victims in televised cases are young women.

People have come to think of the meaning and value of life less and less, while they are being brainwashed by the money economy more and more.
Human life looks nothing when a man is so badly driven by desire for money which can buy entertainment, say, in Hollywood and Las Vegas.
And a money-oriented society never teaches the need to respect human life, since it neglects a right of life and existence of poor people.
It is one of the gravest sins of the money economy to brainwash ordinary people to have a big desire for money and lose respect for other human beings, which then inevitably could be one of decisive factors in Armageddon.
(As for the global warming, we have to use the term “Environment Disruption” instead of CO2, since even a fire in a city can disrupt the nature.
And, a warning can be given not only in New York but also in Los Angeles.
[A huge fire broke out on the back lot of Universal City today, destroying several sound stages and valuable Hollywood memorabilia (LA Times).]”
Anyway, it may be good to have an image of the nature so darling, such as coral reefs critically white under the tropical blue sky playfully producing three or more huge shining thunderheads in the South Pacific so far…
Mat 6:1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
Mat 6:2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
Mat 6:3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
Mat 6:4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
