Last Wednesday you'll recall I blogged about an article that had been shared by W.G., about German Chancellor Scholz's recent visit to Beijing, and what its real (business) purposes were. In short, they were about laying the long-term groundwork for a German "Reformation" and revolt from the papal authority of Swampington, DC. Well, W.G. also shared another article about the other former Axis power that is leaving the American reservation, and which isn't even pretending not to be doing so: Japan:

Anti-Russian Alliance Fractures After Japan Decides To Stay In Russia's Sakhalin-1 Energy Project

There are two things to notice in this article:

While Europe continues the unvarnished hypocrisy of pretending it is imposing draconian sanctions against Russian oil and gas, when instead it is merely buying the country's natural resources via such middlemen as India and China (an exercise in virtue signaling that costs it a 20% mark-up to Russian prices), less than a year since the start of the Ukraine war, some countries have had enough of pretending.

Today, the Japanese government decided to officially screw the sanctions, and remain involved in the (formerly Exxon-led) Sakhalin-1 oil and gas project in Russia, as it seeks a stable supply of energy (who doesn't) despite international sanctions on Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine, the Nikkei reported.

ExxonMobil, which held a 30% stake in Sakhalin-1, announced in March that it would withdraw from the project. But after vacillating for more than half a year, Japan decided not to follow in Exxon's footsteps.

Meanwhile, Russia set up a new company to take over the project under a presidential decree that has in effect forced investors to choose sides. Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry is a stakeholder in Tokyo-based Sakhalin Oil and Gas Development -- which owns 30% of Sakhalin-1's current operator - along with other investors including Itochu, Japan Petroleum Exploration and Marubeni.


Russia has transferred operations of the Sakhalin-2 natural gas project to a new company as well. Japanese investors Mitsui & Co. and Mitsubishi Corp. decided to retain their stakes in the project, and their continued investment has been approved by the Russian government.

Translation: the upcoming G-20 will be rather awkward as Japan's PM Fumio Kushida, an anchor pillar of the G7 in Asia, may decide to sit at the table next the Xi and Putin.

So what are my "two things to notice"? Well, firstly, note that Europe, while publicly Europosturing that it's all on board with Swampington's sanctions regime, is still getting its energy through middlemen India and China, which I'm sure is making fee-enriched Beijing and New Delhi happy. And while a strain on Europe's economy, it probably is a lot better - under the circumstances - than shipping its natural gas via ocean-going ships as Orange Man Bad attempted to convince Europe to do when he was still president, and not dealing (badly) with the planscamdemic.

But the second and much more important point about this article is that it confirms something I stated many years ago, when then Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe began conducting his careful diplomacy with Mr. Putin. At the time I pointed out that both Japan and Russia had very cogent and potent reasons to patch up their differences. Russia needs a counter-balance in the region to growing Chinese power, and geopolitically, economically, and potentially militarily, that can only be Japan. Additionally, Japan has the financial and technological resources to be an alternative source of capital and technological expertise for Russia's plans to build out Siberian infrastructure and to transform the Trans-Siberian railway into a vital Eurasian high-speed rail system. Russia, as the article makes clear, has the energy close-to-hand that Japan needs, and it is not coming through waters that China can easily interdict. For Japan, Russia is a sure source of energy that neither China nor the USSA can intedict.

So whatever the short term decisions Japan may make, rest assured, eventually its relationship with Russia will be as important to it as its relationship with the USSA is currently.

And don't be a bit surprised if, in the upcoming summit, Prime Minister Kushida is sitting with Msrs. Putin and Xi.

After all, would you want to sit next to Bai Den Jo?

See you on the flip side...

    In one’s view, there’s not only posturing (as suggested) but also the matter of cutting losses for the fossil fuel industry as they adjust and re-tool for contingencies. It’s almost as if there’s soon to be another energy source & form revealed that had been in secret development making progress. It was a matter of patents & intellectual property rights to be hashed out and clarified. Possibly, from the Maldives, of all places. Those folks hinting at [something] is not the same thing as a bold-as-polished-brass in-your-face kind of thing.

    Begs the question of what to do about the matter of redundancy(ies).

    There’s a great deal of what seems like [slow walking] policies, procedures, & projects throughout the global geopolitical spectrum. Where this strangeness stands out is in The Ukraine. A disregard of suffering and lives lost to take-their-time slow walking while dispersed projects presumably make progress – waiting beyond the veil of obscurity.

    Imperial USA is hearsay, but global corporatism a formidably well dispersed economy of its own. They’re likely to speak many languages and use associated flags as linen dress.

    In a bizarre twist, Germany and Japan can be doing the USA a favor by helping it stop being a Janissary for its shadow masters and finally end the 39-45 war by withdrawing its troops from Germany and Japan.

      It is a religious problem. Because, as long as the Bible Belt is full of itself, it provides justification for exclusiveness.

      At the centre of all empires, there is a self-righteousness, caused by slave mentality, maintained by mediocrity.

      That is why Occam’s Razor has to used, as a samurai sword, to slice up the narrative, so there is no place to hide.

      Loss of faith has to be substituted, and such means is hereby provided, in the runes of Scythian-Israelite origin.

    Might stepping outside the USSA open air prison;
    give Japan, another Act of God punishment?
    Or, is the plan to beak the world down into economic zones.
    To run experiments, as they did in Sutton’s books.
    You know, the FDR, Hitler, Stalin social systems of control?

    That would be good; the table arrangements.
    Perhaps they could have the One-Party-States of the WEF at one table;
    and those opposed, at another table.
    Then play some opera music, and start watching the chairs move.

    Non-Agreement capable; woke-beyond-belief;
    and it’s do as I say, not as I do.
    That is a narrative; nobody in their right minds,
    wants to sit with, let alone work with.

    >Russia needs a counter-balance in the region to growing Chinese power, and geopolitically, economically, and potentially militarily, that can only be Japan.<

    Well, it could have been the US and Japan, if it weren't for the Mackinder faction of the west's deep state attempting this campaign to balkanize Russia.
    I read somewhere an anecdote about someone visiting a Chinese official in his office and noticing a map with Siberia marked "occupied territory".

      Look at it this way, that through Buddha, Odin already permeates Asia, straight out of the Old Testament.

      If someone has issues, with the Kolovrat riding Siberia, then that is the communist, who wants the world.

      The Saxon Reformation roots out papacy, once and for all, and that is unnoodling the papal commie emperor.

      Vatican is outhouse of Rome.

    Scythio-Israelites rose in asymmetrical warfare, to rule the steppe, and they wiped out Assyria, and toppled Babylon, and expanded, as Scandio-Scythians westwards, and as Indo-Scythians eastwards, explaining the occurrence of a widespread martial art system, the Dharmachakra.

    From India, the eight-legged horse expanded further into China, as kung fu, and has recently branched out, as Okinawan karate. The philosophical side of the martial art system is known as Buddha’s teaching of the dharma & karma wheel – as compass vs. time-compass.

    In Tolstoy’s Russia, the eight-legged horse is known as Scythio-Sarmatian Kolovrat, the Cossack symbol. In Europe, the eight-legged horse is today known by its alphabet derivative, the Runes of Odin, an IQ-test, to determine the real McCoy.

    Shining light on the original pivot paradox, that is defined, as temporal interval and temporal shift, has widespread consequences, geopolitically, when Roman Catholic noodles go Humpty Dumpty.

    Then I can only hope Japan and Europe next to getting from under the yoke of imperialistic USA we need a plan to get rid of their troops on our soil. A wee world problem that is becoming bigger in Europe!

      When orange man reoccupies Iceland, he is in fact shopping stars, for his spangled banner, based on the belief, that Scandinavia should yield, and pay homage, to the high and mighty.

      The USA’s bible belt bullies are in over their head, when faced with the documented fact, that the settlement of Iceland has distinct traits, that are rooted in the original ancient Israel.


      Thus, the USA are in fact following in the footsteps of Assyria, by downtrodding the natural Scythio-Israelite descent, and doing so in the mistaken belief, that the USA is the chosen one.

      Violation of sanctity is an outlawed position, and Odin is the one, who passes sentence, in the Saxon Reformation.

        Loved it?

        “…shopping stars, for his spangled banner…”

        • Robert Barricklow on November 11, 2022 at 11:59 am

          Excuse the Chinese keyboard.
          Love it!!!
          No question about it!
