"Could..." China, Japan, Taiwan...Coulda woulda shoulda.
1) Elections are coming, the annual NK, CH fearmonging works well for the ruling camp.
2) The US and their advanced China-phobia someday will push Japan into War with the Asian Neigbours
As they always did in the past. Placing some bad seeds, collect the spoils of War later.

Tip of the iceberg of the corrupt LDP politics..... with cracks on all sides ( Kurokawa-Case, Justice Minister Kawaii-Case, Moritomo Case, Tsukasa Akimoto Bribery-Case etc etc. ) But seems they still haven't run out of secretaries / scapegoats that can be thrown under the bus.
As long WE voters ( especially those with Goldfish-memory) and those with "cant be help" mentality wont change - NOTHING EVER will change in Japan , except its going downhill...fast.

In terms of Japan - US Diplomacy it means : Pants down, bend over a bit more.
...seeking closer ties with U.S.

He was the brain behind Abe and still drives down the same road. The people will have to realize this in a couple of month. For those who sold their soul for cheaper mobile fees will realize maybe a month or two later.
So whats next - Let me guess Abe's brother Nobuo Kishi will step in next. Japanese style politics as usual : show me your golden Spoon = experienced leader.

In other words more fear-mongering, increasing China &NK Phobia so Japan can move more money out of the working peoples pockets into the US military complex. And in the near future and the tax will have to rise again, ( and the actual prices of potatos for 150 Yen/pcs will be a bargain in the future.
So stop squirming people they keep us in fear + squeeze us dry even more.

Maybe its time to rethink their extreme low buy-in prices. When you get like 5 to 20 Yen for a nice condition used book or manga ( that they sell later for 10-30 times higher ) I prefer just throw it into the paper recyling or sell it online on Mercari myself then wasting my time to drive there and wait 30min + to get their creedy offer.

Gotta love those Reactions from public that pretty much show the mindset of a Japanese non-voting, never cared about politics citizen. " He Worked hard" "I think he worked hard" " I wish he worked harder..." etc.
Its aslo the usual empty phrase used when you dont know what to say or there is nothing else you can praise.

Sounds like the usual distraction news when the Japan Goverment is in serious trouble ( once a NK Rocket, this time a statue in a SK Private Garden, an otherwise a talent having an affair etc ) . Lets solve the waste of taxmoney ( abenomask ) the Kawai Scandal, the Cherry Blossom Scandal, the Prosecutor Scandal, the Moritomo document tampering scandal and the fresh and still lingering Go-To-Travel Campaign.
Anyone interrested in a statue in a privat garden that might or might not look like a bowing man ? Nope, use your time and energy to care and support the own people in the current pandemic BETTER.

Shin-Chan doesnt really know whats going on outside, on the streets. He is probably still in his luxury villa drinking tea, enjoying TV NHK praising him and playing with his doggy...

"We will tighten up by having more police officers step in,
Now take a peek over to the USA - is that really what you need in Japan as well ? Police overfunding, overpowered and people-stomping for the slight piece of freedom thats left on the streets of Japan ?

How about the many living off base ? Seems like those are excluded from the lockdown and a free to spread wherever they go. Again, the US Army with their halfbreed protocols, lots of words, no action.

LDP Shredders probably running already since days destroying all evidence as usual. Welcome to Kurokawa Paradise where Prosecutors make sure Abe's friends get no or if really unavoidable the lightest punishment (and a nice retirement package added)

Not sure if Trump wants an independent probe - considering the coverups since Aug.2019
starting with the shut down of the bio-weapons lab at Fort Detrick, Maryland USA where the virus and started spreading later to US military stationed in Afghanistan have had COVID-19-like symptoms. later in October 2019, when US military personnel participated in the International Military Games held in Wuhan... the world starts pointing fingers ...to China ?
Please Investigate, the world needs to know.

Pointing fingers again... Mr. Trump ? Please explain first :
August 2019 the bio-weapons lab at Fort Detrick was shut down because of safety concerns.....
October 2019, US military personnel participated in the International Military Games held in Wuhan...
Reports indicate that US military stationed in Afghanistan have had COVID-19-like symptomsNov. 18, 2019 a conference on preparations for a coronavirus pandemic (EVENT 201) was held in New York attended by private and public figures

They dont give a d4nm about Mangas or publishers, its to control their grip on media sharing - especially posting or sharing videos or tv clips, photos about Abe & his cronies on youtube, twitter, sns gets you a penalty . In times where only granny is left watching brainwash-NHK they need a step to control the internet.

I call this Fake-news, a bit fear mongering so Abe can point with fingers to gets his "Emergency Plan" ( more power for those who are in charge but failed so far )

Hiding the infected numbers was more important then solving the problem or helping the people. ... and still is today.

Great, Shinzo opening the loot from the taxhike a bit and it will solve everything ? . Fake some more numbers, read the prerecorded answers from the script and it will go away. Late... far to late ! No more dinner with the favorite News/reporters. Get some real advice, bring some solutions. Not halfbaked maybe closed schools, maybe payments for working parents.
Seems the Gov. main and only concern is their sliding ratings, the olympics and which fundraiser dinner party to go next.

Watching, urging, take a nap during work, maybe printing some more money for my crony friends. Have a couple of dinners and parties the media. The hard workday of a leader.

As expected COVID-19 is THE chance to hide your business or political failings. A+++ scapegoat for failed Abenomics. Taxhike. Korean visitors stopped coming because the Goverment lack of diplomacy.
Ryokan probably sucked the environment dry for 64 years without investing, renewing to the needs of 2020 travelers or giving back and investing also to its natural surroundings.

E. In 2 week the LDP rates will go up again, and no one remembers Makihara

Bow, bow, then open secret funds or falsify the documents, No one will know due their "its within state secrets law". Thats Japans Political system in a nutshell.
