Excellent nomination by PM Abe. Trump destroyed ISIS, stop the missiles flying over Hokkaido and is dealing with evil Iran. Obama could achieve none of this. But he even won the Nobel.

I now hope Trump nominates PM Abe for the prize in 2020!!

It's odd... if this whole illegal immigrant thing were really grounds for a national emergency, why didn't Trump go ahead and declare one in his first week in office?

Good on him, here is a President who gets things done

He's had two years to "get things done" about this problem. I don't see a whole lot getting done.

He said Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had given him"the most beautiful copy" of a five-page letter in which Abe nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize for opening talks and easing tensions with North Korea.

I wouldn't believe it if he said it was anyone else who gave him the letter. But a grovelling, boot-licking sycophantic worm like Abe? That's almost plausible.

Japan this is why having a normal military again is important. Japan can play a bigger role in the safety and defence of civilians being murdered.

Would you trust those criminal incompetents in the LDP with more powerful military forces and less restrictions on what they could do with them?

Germany with a much darker history than Japan already has a normal military and plays a bigger role on the world stage and in Europe.

Germany also has a better record for purging itself of the leadership responsible for its past crimes and atoning for them. Japan is led by the children or grandchildren of the men who led it to disaster in the 1940s, and they are determined to whitewash as much wrongdoing as they possibly can. German leaders pay their respects at places were the victims of the Nazis are commemorated. I seriously doubt if Shinzo Abe would ever do the same thing.

But Trump appeared oblivious to the deal, saying that he'd been informed by aides that negotiators had made some progress but that he had declined to be fully briefed so he could go on stage.

"I had a choice. I could've stayed out there and listened, or I could have come out to the people of El Paso, and Texas, I chose you," Trump said.

Of course he did. He could either run the risk of being made to look clueless in a room filled with much smarter people running verbal rings around him while discussing topics he could hardly focus on for more than a minute or get his ego boosted by a crowd of idiots cheering and whooping as he comes out with all the same rambling BS that he always does. A no-brainer, I'd have thought.

Any changes will first have to be approved by the occupying authority, the US.

The US has always been keen for Japan to buy its military gear and get involved in its military fiascos. The US might shut Abe and other pro-revision politicians down if they didn't approve of this kind of talk by its LDP quislings.

Great photo. It captures beautifully the passion and emotion PM Abe and Cabinet have for their Nation.

That's a joke, surely.

With South Korea being increasingly aggressive, North Korea sending missiles towards Japan, Russia difficult, and Communist China constantly threatening to Japan...

None of which could be anything to do with that gang of crooks, incompetents and frauds in the photo doing their stupid fist pumps while unashamedly dreaming of rolling back time to the 1930s? Any problems Japan has with its neighbours have mainly been self-inflicted by the cretins in charge and those gullible enough to buy into their agenda.

So far the Democrats haven't put one credible candidate forward

Hillary Clinton wasn't all that inspiring but she still won the popular vote. Of course what most people think constitutes a credible candidate doesn't always necessarily matter in American "democracy."

plenty of dreamers pushing the same old socialist line - higher spending , higher taxes and open borders.

Is that all you think socialism entails?

bullfighterFeb. 6 02:52 pm JST

As for old gits running a country, the USA is a better example of this than Japan. Donald Trump is 72. Abe Shinzo is 64. Nancy Pelosi is 78, the same age as Aso. More important, Japan is really run by the bureaucrats and they generally retire at 60 or earlier.

Yet the bureaucrats seem very keen to dance to Abe's tune and do all kinds of things that appear to benefit him or his cronies, e.g. Kotaro Kake or Yasunori Kagoike.

Concerned CitizenFeb. 5 07:25 pm JST

Sure, as some have correctly pointed out here, childbearing and raising in the present stagnant economy is financially very challenging. But I would say that the sacrifices pay off heaps in the long run.

We'll have children to care for us when we're old. They can help us with errands, jobs around the house, medical trips, etc, etc.

We can enjoy thier company and a happy family life.

We can enjoy our grandchildren.

That's nice. So what are the benefits for the children?

While Mr. Aso lacks diplomacy, his point is actually correct.

No it is not. The problem is the circumstances created by his party and their cronies that make it so difficult for people to consider having children.

Posted in: Japan's whalers back treaty withdrawal See in context

In terms of politics, many members of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's conservative Liberal Democratic Party are supporters of whaling, and he himself comes from a constituency where whale hunting remains popular.

I think if anyone wants to know how this industry survives, there's the answer right there.

Oh my...

President Donald Trump's friends, family, advisers, and supporters have been celebrating the release of his 2005 tax return — which showed he earned $150 million that year and paid roughly $38 million in taxes — as a win for the president against his critics.

Can anyone whose comments are worth reading explain how this constitutes a "win" for the president?

Liberals don’t care that not giving Trump a $5 billion dollar wall cost $11 billion dollars of shutdown.

Trump taking more than a month to accept the inevitable and realise the Democrats were never going to give in to him is what cost $11 billion. I don't suppose you care about that.

"It cannot be possible...

Let it be a dream...

The news was such a shock that I couldn't remain calm. Arashi was entwined with my youth from primary school to university. I am sad that I will be unable to see the five members' performances...

They were such national idols and both parents and children could enjoy what they did...

They seemed so busy recently so I hope they can have a good rest...

It's a pity that they are going to discontinue their activities but there is still some time (until they do)...I was so happy that they came and told me that my noodles were tasty. I would like them to come again."

Is it just that these comments haven't translated well, or are they all insufferably twee and trite?

Ann Coulter: No question Pelosi outplayed Trump.

"Now you're finding out he's a lying con man," Maher said. "What was your first clue?"

Over laughs and shouts from the audience, Coulter replied "Okay, I'm a very stupid girl, fine."

20 days left. Pelosi and Schumer promised to negotiate once the government was open. It now is.

They're offering more money for border security. But not a wall. Everyone gets a bit of what they want, which is generally the idea of negotiation.

BlacklabelToday 09:51 am JST

Except it’s not a bluff. The President has the power to declare a national emergency. Then the DOD can build a wall for the security of our country. Money exists, people to do the work exist, don’t need Dems at all.

Then why's it not happened already? Trump couldn't get the wall when the Republicans controlled Congress, he didn't declare a national emergency when the Democrats dug their heels in and he hasn't got the DoD started on the wall. Trump talks a big fight but I'll believe it's not a bluff when he actually gets something done.
