"India’s expert panel on Covid-19 drugs and vaccines has turned down US pharmaceutical major Pfizer's application for emergency use authorisation for its vaccine candidate -- already in use in the US and UK -- in the absence of any plan on the firm's part to generate safety and immunogenicity data in the local population."
looks like india is in no rush to collect their darwin awards...

Today marks the beginning of a new era. Republican or democrat, in the end Unity will bring us together. Many have forgotten that the government is for the People. Whatever you believe, there is no need to argue over small differences of Opinion. Nothing will change that we are all in this together.

all one has to do is see that jesuit stooge taro aso, a man so desperate to be part of the club that he married his daughter off to a rothschild, is behind this and it's clear this idea is dead in the water.
the largest companies in japan make actual things. cars, clothes, pharmaceuticals, robotics, machine parts, appliances, telecommunications, technology. the last thing japan needs is more talent being siphoned off from ものづくり to the fast money of the financial world.
let singapore have their financial centre... it's a soulless, cultural wasteland, nanny state with not much else going for it than a high gdp per capita and great food. it's the perfect example of how a government prioritizing economic growth over everything is a bore.
when singapore can sell a billion game consoles, or force american motor giants to rethink their strategy, or produce multiple world champion boxers, or develop lasers that are in every single blu-ray player, or have two decades of creating preeminent jazz, or be first in the world with 8k broadcasts, or has their country in it's own specialized category on porn sites (that are not blocked from access without workarounds) people can start talking about singapore being anywhere near as vibrant a place to live as japan.
i'm okay with there being hoops for foreigners to live in japan. simply having capital shouldn't be the measure for who gets to be here. people with the patience to deal with the bureaucratic mess that is japan in good humour and also dedicated enough to learn the language is what it takes for japanese society to function as it does. though a little kaizen couldn't hurt...

it's remarkable how every person railing against trump is repeating the exact same points that the talking heads on the tv networks are paid to make...
i interpreted what trump was saying as that the flow of information he was receiving on the results has essentially stopped in the past few hours when there was no reason to. failing to continue counting is the fraud that he is accusing of being perpetrated.
based on the pattern of votes counted so far, he extrapolated that the uncounted votes would bear out that he has won the election but the people in control of the election are refusing to allow him to win.
he never said to stop counting votes but rather wanted the rest of the election played out fairly without there being a suspicious batch of late, invalid votes being discovered, when the votes are already all meant to be in. he would use the power of the supreme court to ensure the legitimacy of the election, because 6-3...
the entire media narrative hinges on the idea that the mail-in ballots are going to be massively in biden's favour while trump claims that the gap is too big regardless.
that's what i got out of the speech... if i'm off base i'd rather be wrong on my own terms than just repeat what the tv told me to think.

as a non-american and avowed lifetime non-voter, at this point in the election cycle i am ambivalent to the outcome.
if trump is victorious, babylonian debt slavery can be dismantled, the quantum financial system and currency revaluation can be finalized, suppressed technologies (for free energy, holographic medical pods, environmental clean-up) can be released and a golden age of 1000 years can commence.
if biden wins, i don't have to put up with 4 more years of incessant whining about every little thing trump does.
....win/win either way

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...

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?
