The day before the 11h anniversary of the September 11 attacks, 73-year old Japanese Finance Minister Tadahiro Matsushita was found hanging in his home:

Japan Banking Minister Matsushita Found Dead at His Home

Now, if you're like me, your antennae are immediately pulsing with suspicion over this one. My intuition is telling me this is another case of "murder by suicide," because Matsushita was part of the new Japanese government's attempts to get to the bottom of the plundering and corruption of that country by the decades' long oligarchical rule of the Liberal Democrats. As I have blogged elsewhere on this site, the circumstances of the political changes sweeping Japan have jeopardized the decades' long relationship between the Liberal Democrat oligarchy of that country and its American counterparts. Shortly after that party lost power, the new Japanese government made moves on the international political stage that indicated Japan was attempting to patch up the rift with China caused by the war, and, you'll recall, there was even talk of a visit by Emperor Akahito to Beijing, an unprecedented step. The Japanese Government also around the same time quietly began suggesting that it was time for the US to remove its base from Okinawa, a request, you'll recall, that received nothing less than a veiled threat from US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. A little later we had Fukushima.

The corruption of the Liberal Democrat Party of Japan could only conceivably be matched by the Dummycrooks and Republithugs in this country. It was, for example, an LDP Prime Minister, Tanaka, who came up with the now infamous case of the notorious "57 bonds", bonds that - to put the story very succinctly without getting into the details (the details would take all month to blog on a daily basis!) - were deliberately issued and designed to be peculiar,different than normal Japanese Government securities, and this design included "errors" of grammar, and so on.

The reason for this strange circumstance? Very simple: so Tanaka and his cronies could later claim the bonds were fake or counterfeit if their holders should prove to be "uncooperative", or, alternatively, redeemed only at a sharp discount. Now, if this is sounding vaguely familiar, that's because it is, for the same pattern, you'll recall, was suggested in all those Bearer Bonds Scandals that I've been blogging about here for over a year. Dig a little further into Tanaka and you'll discover that he and his LDP cronies created these "57 bonds'(so-called because they were issued in the then-Emperor Hirohito's 57th year of his reign) as a means to swindle bond holders twice, when a previous scheme of bonds that had come due, and which Tanaka's ministry of finance could not pay. The bond-holders were persuaded to swap their legitimate government bonds for the "57s", which could, because of their design peculiarities, be subsequently denounced as fake.

Dig even further into Tanaka, and you'll discover some interesting connections to Richard Nixon, and a hidden system of finance... but that, of course is another story.

For now, the official story is Minister Matsushita committed suicide. You can bet he didn't, and that this story bears watching...

See you on the flip side...

    The Japanese are not strictly Oriental.
    Their features show a mixed ‘race.’

    It would seem, in some way,
    you just can’t have the ‘best of both’ worlds.
    Some [worlds] don’t HAVE ANY “BEST” at ALL.

    Hence, the Great Wall of China.

    What a convoluted MESS !!!

    Thought I’d throw in a book recommendation here that chimes in with this thread.

    “Gold Warriors” by Sterling & Peggy Seagrave, its a giant “bellringer”.

    And, soon to be interviewed at Red Ice Radio.

    You probably heard about this:


    China openly vilolated Japanese territorial waters with Navy ships right in front of the Japanese Coast Guard. The Chinese are claiming rights to disputed Japanese Islands.

    I guess the honeymoon is over. Japs are getting pummeled from all sides and forced to tow the line– buying US Treasuries, inflating their currency, revolutionaries being murdered, and forced to host a permanent US military presence. And it looks like they don’t have a friend in the world. Was China just taking advantage of Japan’s weak situation or did the banksters order it for some other purpose? Divide and conquer. A unified Asia just won’t do. You can also see how a renegade North Korea could be so advantageous to Anglo-US geopolitical strategy.

    Aside from rolling out steam driven automobiles, asking the US military to leave, and telling the banksters to take a hike, I wonder what else the Japanese were up to?

    I still hold a Japanese retaliation against the US for Fukishima has now entered into the 2012 and beyond US doomsday scenarios along with devastating sun flares, continent splitting Missouri earthquakes, Wyoming volcano eruptions, El CIA-da/El Mossada bio or chemical attacks or lastly the dreaded MAD nuclear exchange with Russia. I would add the Eastern seaboard tsunami but this would most likely go in the category of Japanese retaliation as it wouldn’t take much for the Japs to trigger an earthquake off the Canary Islands and get this 100 meter high tidal wave going. Or is this just a new meme I’m carelessly hustling to add to the apocalypse theater?
