During my 25-years of reporting in Japan, the Japanese struck me as being a very superstitious people because they always insisted the Western world was ruled by David Rockefeller. At the same time veteran Western journalists told me the only serious taboo they ever encountered in their work was the emperor. Japanese journalists for their part took it for granted that criticism of the emperor would lead to harassment and even murder by right wing groups and gangsters. At the same time, there was always this façade in place that insists Japanese is a democracy with a free press.
Only after countless meetings with senior right wingers, CIA officials, Yakuza, dozens and dozens of senior politicians, imperial family members and countless other sources was I able to unravel the puzzle, or at least part of it.
What is clear is that after World War 2, Japan became a de facto Rockefeller fiefdom. However, the Emperor Hirohito retained enormous power and influence so a deal was struck in which domestic policy would be handled mainly by the Emperor and his staff while foreign affairs was Rockefeller turf.
The right wing establishment very much supported this arrangement because of the cold war and their loathing of communism. Furthermore, the Emperor Hirohito inspired the Japanese with a new goal to replace that of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere: catch up with and overtake the West.
The result was decades of fast economic growth in Japan accompanied by slavish Japanese obedience to US foreign policy goals. This arrangement worked fine until the 1980’s when Japan actually began to fulfill the Emperor’s ambition of overtaking the West.
The Japanese trade surpluses with the US, although tiny in real terms compared to those of the past two decades, began to make the Washington establishment extremely nervous. After years of frustrating trade talks aimed at opening the Japanese market failed to dent the US deficit, a fundamental change in policy began.
The change came when George Bush Senior became the US Vice-President and was put in charge of US foreign policy by Ronald Reagan. Bush’s view seemed to be that since the US had military superiority over Japan they should use it. In August of 1985, according to senior members of the Japanese security police and other sources, Bush ordered that a Japanese airline domestic flight (#123) be shot down with a US missile. The murder of 500 innocent Japanese was used to force the Japanese to sign the Plaza Accords, which they did in September of 1985.
The result was the sudden increase in value of the Japanese yen and the Japanese financial bubble. While Japan seemed to rise to ever new heights as a result of this bubble, it was just the beginning of an economic war aimed at neutering the Japanese economy.
When the Emperor Hirohito died in 1992 (of a disease that could have been cured had he gotten proper medical attention), Japan was set up for a long period of stagnation. Perhaps that is why the new era after Hirohito was named Heisei （平成）which can be translated as “flat growth.” It is now the 22nd year of Heisei and Japanese GDP is actually lower than it was when the era began.
The Bush Nazi faction also began to systematically murder Japanese Prime Ministers, journalists and others who did not go along with the new regime. The Heisei Emperor, unlike his predecessor, did not, as the public events of his rule demonstrate, have the ability to protect his country.
One particularly grim episode was the murder of Prime Minister Noboru Takeshita. He was originally taken aboard a helicopter and hung upside down in mid-air in an attempt to convince him to go along. When he still refused, he was taken to Alaska, stripped naked and chased with helicopters. He was then had his testicles stomped with boots before he was beaten to death. Both a member of the Japanese royal family and a senior member of the Japanese security police claim to have been shown the video of this murder as a warning.
The US behavior towards Japan became so ugly that even the Japanese criminal underworld started to become disgusted. Things became ugly when Junichiro Koizumi, a gangsters subservient to Bush, was made Prime Minister. When Koizumi visited the US as Prime Minister, he was presented with a high-class American prostitute and then drugged to sleep. She was then strangled and when Koizumi woke up, he was blamed for her murder and blackmailed about it, according to a senior member of Koizumi’s Inagawa gang.
Koizumi proceeded to betray his country by handing over control of the entire Japanese financial system to Western oligarchs including the Bushes, the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds. These people then set about using the Japanese people’s own money to set up hedge funds and buy up much of Japan’s economic infrastructure.
It was only after Koizumi finally left office that damage control began but Japan remains deeply split between those who benefited financial from betraying their own country and those who remained loyal to true samurai principles. Next week we will discuss the current state of the secret war over the soul of Japan.
