Dozens of potential jurors at Trump hush money trial dismissed for bias

LOL.

That ship's done sailed...

There is nothing about this case that's anything more than political theater,

but do, let's not have impartial jury members!

Posted in: Monday will be 13 years since the March 11, 2011 disaster. If you were in Japan, what are your memories of that day? See in context

Western Tokyo, I was riding my bike to the station, for an early rehearsal for my later jazz concert.

I didn't know why everyone looked drunk so early in the day, hanging on to each other for balance, until I saw the phone/electric wires swinging. When I got off my bike, I could not stand upright. I wanted to cry but didn't want to ruin my makeup. A guy nearby laughed at this. When the shaking finally stopped, he was gone. I was able to reach my son at university, but mobile phone service went out, directly after. Stood online to use a pay phone to try and reach club owner, and all musicians that the gig was all canceled...

Rode bike home, a few paintings fell down, turned on news to see how horrible it was going up north.

More shaking. Shopping for food became like a scavenger hunt, but it was orderly. I was thankful for my friends in area at that time. I remember thinking if I had to be in such a situation, better to be in Japan where people were all trying to help one another, and there was no looting.

A few days before trains were running again...

I hope the victim recovers from his injuries.

His life is bound to be affected by this attack; hospital fees,

recuperating and loss of his study time, plus the mental and emotional trauma

of being randomly attacked on the street he felt safe on.

The kid that did this has issues as well.

Posted in: Body of newborn baby boy found in trash can at Osaka hotel See in context

According to police, a hotel cleaning employee found the infant in a trash can near an elevator on the seventh floor of the hotel in Chuo Ward at around 10:30 a.m., Kyodo News reported. The baby, with its umbilical cord still attached and wrapped in a towel, was inside a plastic bag.

So, this person didn't just drop it on the floor, and leave, she packed it neatly (maybe while it was still alive) into a plastic bag, then a towel, and dumped it in a trash bin, where it would be found.

There is a disproportionate number of 'lynch-mob ' mentality comments here.

It is complete and utter disrespect for human life,

and this so called "lynch mob" are stating that fact.

This person was conscious of neatly disposing of her infant boy,

that lived inside her and she gave birth to, with a coldness and detachment

that is inhuman.

The only thought she gave to this infant,

was how to dispose of it.

This is murder.

In selecting its winners, the contest says it judges candidates based on their inner strength, looks and actions.

The land of passive aggression.

They can't outright say they disagree with her winning,

that would go against the virtue signal they set up-

so sic some rag mag into her personal life until they find (or create) some red meat.

She was probably offered a settlement, for her discretion...

I prefer when the tiaras were from Mikimoto!

You have literal in your face evidence of how govt. acts without taxpayers best interests or consent, to deliver funds to this foreign endless sinkhole, while in local reality some people in Ishikawa still don’t have power or running water.

Imagine what those kinds of funds would do for rebuilding, or aiding the displaced. Or, for any issue that concerns the people of Japan.

Priorities.

When people stop paying taxes en masse, govt. play money dries up, and ‘the employees of the people’ start behaving as such.

Posted in: Woman arrested after showing up at Saitama police station with dead baby See in context

She did not know what to do. Are there any social services available to educate her on caring for an infant? That was the point of failure, not her actions to a broken system.

She was 27, not 11.

At some point you must take responsibility for yourself and your infant. Working as a sex worker is a choice, having a baby even by default, is a choice.

You have more than 9 mos to figure out a plan, doing nothing, and dropping an infant and leaving it, are choices.

She is not a victim, the innocent baby girl who never got a chance to live, is.

RIP.

Trump says he didn't know his immigration rhetoric echoes Hitler

That's because it doesn't.

But that will never stop the MSM from constantly saying it.

Because repeating a false statement over and over, makes it appear true, over time...

That's what the Third Reich did, same as the MSM do now.

That's a similarity I do see.

Girls,

Knowing what happens, don’t think you’re unique or a special case, no matter how clever or attractive you are- You’re all looked upon as marks, nothing more.

Spend your time and hard earned money bettering yourself, or donating your time where it’s appreciated, not looking for companionship in a den of vipers, no matter how shiny the scales...

Globalists in charge all behave similarly all over the world.

They are placed, not elected, their agenda is to obey their leaders, and their leaders don’t care about you.

Call it LDP, but it’s globalism.

Get rid of this scourge on humanity, that forever works against us; propelling wars, disease, energy, food and supply shortages to keep you in constant state of anxiety and fear, and in control...

Using your ever rising taxes not for your benefit, but to money launder for various “causes” back to themselves.

Corruption and globalism are one in the same.

Posted in: Johnny's sex abuse victim dies in apparent suicide See in context

The victims of this abuse need validation. They need to know what happened to them was not their fault, that the person who used them for their personal gratification was a sick, but well connected person, and that striving and working towards your dream career should not involve being abused. This pedophile is dead, but many that carry this heavy weight with no way to relieve it, still live. This poor soul needed a support group, and some thread to cling to that said he was not at fault,

and his life has value.

And where is this? This despicable agency needs to take a large chunk of its money earned off the backs of its victims, and start counseling for them, immediately. All the minions in media should be made into donors. Not one more person

should be this low without a place to turn. Japan Inc allowed this abuse to flourish, now it should do the right thing.

RIP, tortured soul.

Posted in: Recent nursery choking accidents spur call for active gov't involvement See in context

When employers and govt conspired to invade into people’s lives and decide motherhood and home making is “unemployed”, this is the result.

instead of loving home care, you have minimum wage uncaring people, doing a “job”.

Raising children is a fundamentally important part of life, and yet people are forced to pay strangers to do it, as a one wage family has all but disappeared.

Being a person who keeps a home running smoothly, cooks, and takes care of children is looked at as “without skills”, and their time (and tax revenue) is far better served working for a boss...

Children are raised as part of the state, as future wage earners, not as human beings.

This mentality has been pushed and prodded into status quo.

Reading this story is evidence of this shift.

Minimum wage to care for infants, children, and old people, and family care givers have minimal support.

And the farmer pulls another cart away...

Working with dementia patients needs special training.

Combine no training and minimum wage,

There is training involved in many jobs, why not this one?

Or is it easier to say, what an evil person, he got punched once too often

while trying to do his job, and reacted.
