So many Trump "expert" haters here.
doesnt take an expert to hate Trump, he does that all by himself.

failed over N Korean sanctions demands
hold on I thought Trump said he'd have the NK problem sorted quickly, millions more $ down the drain for a total farce of a sumit. Ah well Trump can always go to Marlago for a game of golf and chocolate cake.

It's interesting that the Democratic side are using THIS guy to attack the President.
Its interesting that they continually discredit Cohen because he lied, yet the President proven liar in chief is perfectly believable and credible, not one of them even had the nads to ask a Cohen a question about Trump, LOL

and Japanese beef any day over anything from Australia or NZ.
fine for the Japanese mindest, there is a reason why Australia is one of the largest beef exporters in the world, majority of Australian beef doesnt go to Japan, countires like China , middle east, Indonesia are lining up to buy it.

Japanese beef is second to none. Japan have the best beef. Not just the price.
fat isnt beef, Japanese may like high fat beef by most gaijin prefer leaner, healthier cuts, taste is in the mind of the buyer. what may be prized in Japan isnt always prized overseas.

NZ beef from grass fed animals is the best
If Aussie beef is so crap then why are they the biggest importer!? nearly all of Australian beef is grass fed, they roam on the largest cattle ranches/stations in the world. If you want to pay more you can get excellent premium Tasmanian beef . Australian like NZ beef has the strictest quaranteen practices in the world which is why in the last 40yrs there have been almost zero outbreaks of foot in mouth , mad cow livestock diseases. The fact remains Australian NZ beef is a quality safe product, Australia has the advantage of scale in that they can produce 10s thousands of cattle on just one ranch. largest ranch in Austrlia has over 23000 sq/km / 5.8 million acres. many of them holding over 20,000 head of cattle.

But win we did anyway -- the anti-Henoko camp.
how is that a win when the base will still be relocated to Henoko, the people of Henoko have voted for a pro base mayor, are their views irrelevant. Futenma will be returned and all that extra land will be developed for the the local population thatll be the real win for the Okinawan people.

Trump should just order army to take over the fed reserve and help himself to needed amount of money...
oh you mean like what dictators do. maybe Trump can send the military door to door and demand about $75 from every US citizen at gunpoint, wall paid for. $25billion wall / 330million citizens

Indeed, there will be a wall.
nah first Trump has to get past all the legal battles and land owner claims, if he manages to do that then he has to get past voter backlash come 2020, highly doubtful he could get even a partial wall finished in that time frame. Majority of senate seats up for grabs in 2020 are republican, history shows if harder to retain seats than it is to lose them, midterms is also proof of that.

About the crime committed by US military in Okinawa, it is very simple: less US military, less crime, and less US military is what the overwhelming majority of the Okinawan people want (and to have less crime is one of the reasons why).
actually no US marine crime rate in Okinawa is lower than that of Okinawans so while less marines will mean lower overall number of crimes it will actaully increase the crime rate per capita on the island. Bit like saying Okinawans should have less children and decrease the population becuase the number of crimes will go down. and Ill say it again, US marines are visitors in Japan, like the many thosuands of Japanese staying in other coutries around the world, doesnt mean either group is guilt free when it comes to crime in the countries they reside. So the myth that US marines increase the crime rate per capita on the island is just that a myth.

They once knocked at my door long time ago, I gave them 300,000 Yen, an amount that means nothing to me, and they never came back. Easy strategy if you ask me.
I could pay that 10 times over if I was required to by law and punishable with fines like consumption/income taxes. There are times in life when matters of principle are far more valuable than any monetary payments people may surrender regardless of a person's wealth or lack of it.

point of story they are hyenas only able to to harass foreigners and women.. dont harass me ever,
i tell my wife that if your ever confronted by the NHK guy to tell them straight don't speak to me you'll have to speak to my husband. I come out calmly and firmly, don't have an antenna on my roof only thing I watch is internet TV , eg Netflix. dont watch NHK as it is not interesting to me or my family . after the second attempt they've never come back again. Until the J government implements laws to make it punishable with fines for non payment such as income / consumption taxes then Ill refuse to pay. I already pay far more compulsory taxes than your average J citizen, Ill be damned if Ill pay any more than what is required of me by law. Tax minimization (no not evasion) is every J citizens/ permanent residence right, you should never have to pay a yen more than what is legally required of you by law, and certainly not for something which you don't consume, eg NHK broadcasts.

why do they keep harping on about this, the base move was decided 20yrs ago, the Japanese courts have ruled against the Okinawa governement , any hindering of the move will be ruled as illegal. If by some small chance the base moved is stopped, Futenma will have to stay where it is. residence of Heneko have voted for a pro base mayor so the move while not perfect is the bet option for Okinawas, itll free up much needed land in Futenma and remove the safety risks associated with the airstation
You can't compare crime rates between U.S. bases and Okinawan society at large.
huh!? of course you can the US bases in Okinawa are part of that society marines are out among Okinawa society on their days off. Okinawans continually complain about marine crimes in their society all the while convenienty ignoring the higher crime rate of Okinawas . The fact still remains US marines in Okinawa are more law abiding than Okinawans in Okinawa.
then a counterpart in the U.S. for comparison must be New York or Los Angeles.
oh ok then marines in NY or LA comit 0 crimes in Okinawa since theyre not even part of that society, perfect record. why would you even compare US marine crime rates on the US mainland which have zero effects on Okinawan society or statitics!?

Japans invasion and annexing of China and much of east asia started in 1931 and ended in their 1945 defeat of WW2, so yes at least 80yrs

As for people supporting the transfer plan, about 55 percent said safety issues surrounding the Futenma base need to be addressed. why do they keep bring this BS argument up, J police statistics show Okinawans comit more crimes per capita than US marines in Okinawa, and its also shown than Japanese also comit crimes in other countries so that excuse is debunked.

he maybe the only US president yet to start new war for profit
but he is starting a new arms race with Russia since he's the first POTUS to cancel the nuclear disarmament treaty, which raises the risk of nuclear proliferation and nuclear war. Not something a Nobel Laureate should have in their resume

There is no chance Ghosn returns to Nissan and Renault.
and why would Ghosn do that when hes already resigned as chairman, what he is now doing is exposing the corrupt legal system in Japan for the whole world too see, everybody knows Japanese kryptonite is criticism , now he has a legal team thats prepared to expose the flaws and illogical rulings, things are really going to get interesting. The more embarrassment to Japan for the world too see the more pressure on the J prosecutors to actually do their jobs and compile evidence, theyre highly unlikely to get a guilty plea from Ghosn. Hes not your average sheeple thatll tow the line

I hope he wins it. What a great POTUS he has turned out to be. MAGA!
yeah a leader that pulled the US out of the nuclear disarmament treaty with Russia , basically starting another arms race which could potentially end modern civilization as we know it. yeah that person would make a great Nobel Peace Laureate LOL

The more faded ones may only fetch 50% or 25% of face value.
well if theyre legal currency why would somebody sell an old 10,000yen note for 5000yen or 2500yen thats just palin stupidity, better to send it back to the bank of Japan and have them exchange for new notes with the same face value. currency that cant be verified as legitamate is only worth the paper its printed on , which isnt much.

Democrats caved and gave 55 miles of wall. Remember when Pelosi swore she would give nothing? Big victory for the President.
wrong 55miles of fencing, 55miles of 2000miles is less than 3%, hardly a cave , see if Trump can get his other 97% in the time he has left as POTUS. good luck lol

Does anyone here honestly think he will get a fair trial based on his treatment so far?
probably not, its guilty until proven guilty in Japanese law, the loss of face by the J prosecutors and all those that have already declared him guilty would be too much to handle, far easier to pin something anything on Ghosnso so they can save some pride. thank god Im not shackled by the draconian mindset so many here seem to suffer from, it really is holding Japan back in more ways than people realise

Wait - didn't Pelosi say she would approve only one dollar for the wall? She caved!
yeah she probably caved for that $1, she probably even paid for it out of her own pocket so the taxpayer wouldnt have to front the bill. $1 cave is far more acceptable than a $25billion wall. I love how deluded the Trump spinsters become when the see defeat as imminent. LOL
