The Guardian of Japan’s Underworld Has Gone To The Other Underworld

hanten

Morikazu Tanaka, an ex-prosecutor turned mouthpiece for the mob (yakuza) and other shady characters,  passed away Saturday at the age of 71. Tanaka personified the image of former prosecutors in japan as being shady lawyers who would work for the highest bidder, often the criminals and/or criminal organization they once tried to put in jail.

The Star Trek Conference In Beijing: Klingon Warlord Xi Disses Tanuga* IV Leader Abe

Klingon Warlord Xi hosts UFP conference but not all goes well.

“Is it even worth considering whether China is willing to change its position regarding territorial disputes and its desire to dominate Asia? It’s not. Thus, Japan has just conceded a main point—that a dispute exists and its willing to discuss it—even if the government of Japan claims it said no such thing in its statement. The PRC (China) has therefore gotten something important. And what did Japan get? A grudging handshake and a short meeting. Who looks like the supplicant?”

Has a Russian sexual predator been on the loose in Hokkaido?

>How could you have sex with an obviously unwilling partner?
Actually, I liked it. She was so prim and proper, with a rich inner world and a sense of self-respect. But once I gave her a little nudge, she turned out to be a common slut. Sometimes she even forgot that she supposedly wasn't enjoying herself :) 
It's not like she couldn't come up with money [for the return ticket]. She had a credit card, a mobile phone. She could have borrowed money from her parents or friends, I wasn't holding her by force, but she chose to pay me with her own body. All her histrionics and tears were a result of conflict between her self-image and reality. I told her as much when she was leaving. 

(From R.K. - A credit card issued in Russia most likely could not be used to get money in Japan. Elsewhere, Anton L. states that the woman offered to pay him back after returning home, but he refused to believe her.)

In perhaps the most chilling of his comments, Lennikov describes systematically raping a woman after inviting her to spend a vacation in Japan. Lennikov writes: “Back in Russia, when I was 20, I dated a 16-year-old, let’s call her Masha… I reconnected with Masha through social networks. She is destitute and lives with her cancer-stricken, controlling mother.”

Shukan Bunshun to release audio of Yamatani interview

Eriko Yamatani is a liar–and Shukan Bunshun has the audio to prove it.

Japan’s Female Police Commissioner worked with racist & sexist newspaper?

Eriko Yamatani, the head of Japan's Public Safety Commission, posing with a member of the hate group, Zaitokukai. She contributed an essay to his newsletter in which she derides Japan's democratic constitutions and suggests women should not be allowed to divorce.

It’s not just Ms. Yamatani’s ties to a hate group reviled by the UN, Zaitokukai, but in an essay she wrote for a magazine run by a member of the group, she asserts that women in Japan should have their right to divorce taken away from them as part of promoting gender equality. And of course, let’s do something about those tax dollars stolen by capricious single mothers.

The UN Hates Japan’s Hate Speech Indifference; LDP May Love Chance To Shut Up Protesters

Japanese bookstores are rife with anti-Korean magazines and periodicals that asperse Korea and ethnic Koreans living in Japan. This is a recent round-up of slurs and hate filled prose, including off-colour remarks from a Japanophile white man in Texas---Texas Daddy. (テキサスオヤジ)

The UN committee does not give ratings to countries on well they are doing in “eliminating racial discrimination” but the essence of third improvement order to Japan was: “you’re failing miserably. Do something.”

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe plagiarizes himself: If you can recycle nuclear fuel, why not speeches?

Prime Minister Abe has a habit of repeating himself, which isn't great when people are actually paying attention. So much for that "heartfelt" speech.

This year’s Hiroshima bombing commemoration speech bears a uncanny resemblance to last year’s.

The Ides Of October: Japan’s nuclear reprocessing “dream” is the world’s nightmare

The Rokkasho Nuclear Fuel Cycle PR Center can explain to you why nuclear spent fuel is so hand to have.

The IAEA considers 8kg is enough to make a nuclear weapon. In other words, if the 1% not accounted for (at Rokkasho Spent Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing Plant) was actually stolen, it would be enough material to produce the equivalent of 10 nuclear weapons in a year.

And justice after all? Prosecutor Review Board Say “Charge TEPCO Execs with criminal negligence”

TEPCO executives might possibly be prosecuted for criminal negligence resulting in death and injury over the 3/11 triple nuclear meltdown in Fukushima. But will justice prevail? The odds are as good as there never being another nuclear accident in Japan. Ahem.

However, if the Tokyo Prosecutorial Board again rules that prosecution of the TEPCO executives is warranted then a team of lawyers will be chosen to play the role of the prosecutors and the accused will be charged. An independent government investigatory board concluded in 2013 that the nuclear accident could have been prevented and that TEPCO management was criminally negligent.

Fight For Your Right To (Dance) Party Past Midnight In Japan!

The National Police Agency of Japan is at long last (and after much public pressure) considering revising Japan’s archaic adult entertainment laws to allow dancing past midnight! Yes, Japan may finally be going footloose.
