if after 4 years you aren't able to look past trump's personality to understand the bigger picture of what is going on, then don't worry... you still have 4 more years to figure it out

the conspiracy isn't that PCR tests are inaccurate or that a proportion of deaths have been falsely attributed to the virus.
the real conspiracy is that anything which keeps you in a state of powerless fear, anything which causes you to research statistics and discuss virology endlessly to figure out what is going on, or anything which aims to convince people that what is happening is not a real threat, is all a distraction.
these distractions were designed (like the virus) to take time and focus away from riding the wave of the once in 26000 year energies currently bombarding earth from the galactic centre that enables people to consciously direct the evolution of their soul.
if compared to 6 months ago, you have become more loving, more joyful, more grateful, more compassionate, more aware, more generous, more peaceful and healthier... then you've probably felt these energies, and all is well.

it seems likely that the olympics will be held without spectators following suit with the other major sports around the world. maybe they'll use some of that leftover recycled metal they extracted to make the medals and fashion chastity belts for the athletes as a preventative measure to contain virus spread in the village.

i came to the conclusion that the simple act of wearing a mask is sending a subconscious signal to my body that my immune system is not capable of dealing with the virus which would in turn increase my chances of getting sick. add to that, the fact that masks cause headaches, hypoxia, build up co2 levels and acts as a barrier to prevent the immune system from getting regular exposure to the pathogens needed for a robust constitution, and masks are a net negative for me.
if a mask allays your fears then that is what you need for optimal immune function because placebo is the strongest medicine around.
not wearing a mask is not ignorance, unobstructed fresh oxygen is what i need to be healthy. i don't care if people scowl behind their masks, i can't see their face.
we should be grateful to live in a country where the freedom to choose whether to wear or not wear a mask still exists...

why are people getting caught up with labels? there isn't any need for mixed people to make any definitive decision regarding their identity until it comes time to adopt the funeral rites of either their mother or father's culture. in my case, i am leaving instructions to dump my body to be collected with wednesday's trash.

i'm sure at least some of those protesters are aware that the real issue in japan is that ANYONE regardless of race is essentially treated as a criminal any time they refuse to fully co-operate with the police.
the police expect you to waive your rights and allow them to search your possessions without a warrant because "only a criminal would refuse".
most japanese are willing to allow the police to waste their time because they always defer to authority but this protest shows that there are still some japanese who are willing to stand their ground. ensuring that police keep their power in check is going to become especially important as precincts start to use A.I and big data to patrol cities.
...the problems plaguing the japanese police extend far beyond racism if you believe what ex-cop Toshiro Senba 仙波敏郎 has to say
while i personally believe that protesting the police is like getting into an argument with the neighbor's dog for pooping on your lawn... civil disobedience certainly makes for a more interesting news topic than a pandemic...

so just to recap, for weeks the top prosecutor with a reputation for protecting abe's interests is embroiled in controversy, yesterday he resigns from his position for an "unrelated" reason and today a complaint is filed at the prosecutors office to file charges against abe.
i only pretend to understand how politics works so this seems like quite the coincidence...
looks like the opposition needed to clear the obstacles to make sure their only bullet hit the target. it may be petty but remember al capone's empire came crumbling down due to tax evasion of all things. when people want to see you go down, they will do whatever it takes to make it happen.

for people who are against militarizing space, do you suppose being sitting ducks for china's space fleet is a better option? this is the next frontier and the continuation of the new cold war.
the united states have already been testing their space/time bending propulsion systems since (at least) 2004. if you're curious to see it in action, check out the pentagon's recent declassified "ufo" videos.
"Its changes in altitude, air speed, and aspect were just unlike things that I've ever encountered before flying against other air targets."
" the object appeared to dart from a high altitude of about 60,000 feet to a low altitude of 50 feet "within seconds"
"the ability to hover over the water, and then start a vertical climb, from basically zero up towards about 12,000 feet, and then accelerate in less than two seconds, and disappear."
"possibly demonstrated the ability to 'cloak' or become invisible to the human eye"
no sonic boom, sound or heat signature.
these quotes from air force pilot eyewitnesses sound like the technology described in salvator pais' patents on high-temperature superconductors, gravitational wave generators, compact fusion reactors, high-energy electromagnetic field generators and hybrid aerospace-underwater craft. these patents are public record and property of the US navy.
there is also the push to ratify the NESARA act which
"Enables the release of over 6,000 patents of suppressed technologies that are being withheld from the public under the guise of national security, including free energy devices, antigravity, and sonic healing machines."
we're on the precipice of a new age... it's only a matter of time.

The misplaced focus in the article is on whether the rich and entitled should receive the payment and ‘national unity’ (whatever that is?)
this is a common strategy of a controlled opposition. i see it often on japanese tv. talking heads who are supposedly against government policy only provide flimsy milquetoast arguments and red herrings to limit the scope of the conversation. they do not deviate from the script and they avoid the real issues.
isn't it curious when the news fails to mention a group of former prosecutors stepping out of line to denounce abe's amended retirement bill?
is there censorship when the top twitter trend yesterday was #検察庁法改正案の強行採決に反対します and today it has not budged one iota?
is it irrelevant that in yesterday's heated lower house meeting the LDP spokeswoman refused to answer anything about anything which led to the opposition's insistence that abe steamrolling his policies goes against democratic law?
why does more doublespeak from aso get the headline while abe dropping the ball on masks YET AGAIN to the tune of 800 million yen goes unreported?
is the no confidence motion submitted yesterday of no matter because nothing will come of it?
which of this site's articles come from actual boots on the ground reporting? how many are copy pastes of wire agency articles used to maintain the status quo?

leaked? that's a good one. in what reality is it normal for former presidents to casually have their private conversations secretly recorded and leaked?
maybe the reality where the sitting president goes on a national tv and accuses the previous administration of an unprecedented level of subverting the democratic process aka treason?

this feels like a government coordinated test run of an emergency broadcast messaging system.
the results are not as important as establishing that the system works and users are compliant.

years ago, a girl in a club asked me what i liked. i told her shimura ken. she asked me to tell a shimura ken joke. i refused multiple times. she insisted and wouldn't leave me alone.
so i looked at her deadpan and said "im thirsty for mango juice" in japanese... a classic shimura gag...
instantly she slapped me across the face and not in a joking manner.
i was confused but walked away.
later that night i was standing outside having a smoke and this girl was leaving... and as she walked up the stairs she tripped and fell upwards, not hard enough to hurt but enough to need to gather herself.
from the bottom on the stairs i yelled out a hearty nelson muntz HAH HAH... she turned around to see who it was. we made direct eye contact and both knew that balance was restored in the universe.
thanks for the laughs ken!

i saw shimura kens soba skit a couple weeks ago with my wife and it was almost beat for beat the same skit he did 25 years ago that i watched with my grandparents when i was kid.
it was the first time my wife had seen the skit but i remembered each joke so more than being amused at the surprise jokes, i was wistfully thinking about how shimura san has been providing laughter in my home across generations.
better to burn out than fade away.
truly a legend. rest in peace.

i'm sure many tears will be shed when the companies that thought they could game the system and take advantage of the corporate welfare handed out at the expense of the taxpayers crash and burn...
there are no trickle down economics from the olympics. the event only serves to enrich a specific subset of society. the athletes don't even get paid unless they win. 100000 brainwashed volunteers are exploited so the suits at the top can reap the rewards.

good for her... i guess? obviously she is highly determined, extremely capable and undoubtedly reached her goal... of being another piece on the chess board?
i always thought women weren't in the military not due to physiological differences but moreso because on the whole they had enough common sense to understand that signing over your free will to do someone's else's dirty work was a raw deal.
so this is progress then, i suppose.

rather than stressing out looking outwards at all the problems going on, this is a great opportunity to turn inwards to focus on the integration of habits that activate the parasympathetic nervous system.
