Ed.’s note: The coronavirus vaccines (injectables) are on the way to Japan. There is absolutely no other way to formulate an opinion about the need for vaccines (injectables) than to understand investment flows. Under Japan’s PM Shinzo Abe, Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund underwent reform of its Financial Services Agency. This agency is responsible for investment flows of Japan’s massive public pension funds. Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund is heavily invested in R&D with the two pharmaceutical companies the US Pfizer and UK’s AstraZeneca. Both Pfizer and AstraZeneca are in the top 30 R&D investments by Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund. This is why the Japanese government has turned mask wearing into a major national issue concerning this WEF-directed global reset under COVID.
An entirely new cottage industry has sprung up in Japan of designer masks. The level of COVID propaganda on television in Japan is beyond the pale. There is just too much at risk financially to not hype coronavirus to the absolute limits of propaganda in Japan. Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund is the world’s largest pension fund with ¥162.1 trillion yen in assets as of the end of June, 2020 and its return on overall assets was 8.3% over the three-month period.
What ultimately this all means is that if the individual Japanese DOES NOT take full responsibility for their own health, Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund will do it for them with billions at stake in investments. Will individual Japanese take these steps? No, they won’t. They are utterly dependent on official government directives and policies for their existence. Who are the Japanese people inside this “advisory panel” and what are their connections to Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund who are saying “the virus infection is spreading at an alarming pace?”
Meanwhile in Japan, be sure to check out Saizeriya‘s new COVID protection mask. Allows you to eat cheap food while staying protected. A prophylactic for the mouth because YOU are a walking biohazard.
Ed.’s note: Governments including the government in Japan are spreading unfounded fear and panic based on unfounded premises that there is a SARS-CoV-2 virus. This virus has not been scientifically verified which according to official sources causes COVID19 that has not been scientifically defined. This virus has caused influenza and common cold symptoms that is tested for by a completely inaccurate RT-PCR test that tests for RNA fragments common in all living creatures. This total load of unscientific falsification is being used to force people into dysfunctional behavior completely at odds with natural and normal human interaction and behavior, especially with this religion of mask wearing. This SARS-CoV-2 virus has never been isolated. COVID19 is not a scientifically defined disease. The RT-PCR test being used to basically destroy lives and economies and livelihoods is totally false.
Japan is mining deep sea mud and the U.S. is developing biotech to extract REEs in an environmentally responsible way

You may not have realized it, but praseodymium, terbium, and gadolinium are as important to your work as the soldering iron, multimeter, and oscilloscope. Respectively, these rare earth elements (REEs) help make possible lasers and certain magnets, fluorescent lamps and sonar systems, computer memories and X-ray tubes.
There are seventeen REEs, and most of them play a special role in 21st Century living—several pounds of these compounds, for instance, are used in batteries for electric and hybrid vehicles. But the industry producing them is overshadowed by the fact it has become a monopoly of China, which is not shy about threatening to restrict REE exports when aggrieved.
Ironically, most REEs are not particularly rare. Rather, they are seldom found in concentrated amounts large enough to make them readily profitable to extract and refine. That wasn’t always the case. The Mountain Pass mine in California’s Mojave Desert was the world’s largest supplier of certain REEs from the 1950s to 1990s, supplying the needs of color TV makers and electronics manufacturers that supplied the U.S. defense industry during the Cold War. With the end of that war and the issuing of stringent government environmental regulations, the mine went out of business in 2002.
Meanwhile, China—a rich source of REEs—began to seriously develop technology for extracting, separating, smelting, and processing REEs in the mid-1970s. Less regulated and supported by the government, the country became a major REE exporter in the 1980s, going on to account for an astonishing 97 percent market share of all rare earth mineral production in 2010. Though China’s share has since decreased to around 70–80 percent, it has become the world’s largest consumer of REEs, in keeping with its spectacular growth in high tech manufacturing.
In a paper reviewing China’s REE policies from 1975–2018 published in Mineral Economics this January, the authors note that the Chinese government, in efforts to manage resources, reduce pollution and encourage the country’s industrial growth, asserted control over the REE industry in the 1990s. Export restrictions and production quotas were introduced and REE prices soared.
When the rest of the industrialized world woke up to their dependency, China reversed its strategy on REE prices, “keeping them low and making it difficult [for other countries] to compete,” says Kristin Vekasi of the University of Maine, interviewed last summer by the National Bureau of Asian Research, a think tank advising the U.S. government. Not only that, but ten years ago China used administrative regulations to evade breaking World Trade Organization rules when it halted exports of REEs to Japan, after a dispute erupted over islands in the South China Sea both countries claim. And last summer during the trade tariff dispute between China and the U.S., China’s official government newspaper People’s Daily raised the possibility of using REE exports as a way to pressure the U.S., while Chinese President Xi Jinping at the time notably called REES “an important strategic resource.”
The Japanese were quick to respond to the threat of blocked exports. The state and private sector collaborated to encourage recycling and diversification of REE supplies. “By late 2017, Japan was importing around 30% of its rare earth from Asian countries other than China,” notes Vekasi.

Ed.’s note: The Coronscam is multi-faceted and one facet is to reorganize the economies of various countries and that includes Japan. Japan is conforming to the World Bank and WEF’s “Great Reset.”

Japan’s labor ministry says over 32,000 workers have been discharged by their employers or faced contract nonrenewal amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Ministry officials counted 32,348 such workers from the end of January through last Friday. Some 4,000 were added over the past week. The figures were taken from job placement agencies nationwide and other sources.
Of those who lost their jobs, 5,966 worked at hotels and inns, 5,272 worked in manufacturing and 4,408 worked at pubs and restaurants.
A total of 11,798 non-regular workers such as part timers and temporary staffers have lost their jobs since late May, when the ministry began compiling data by form of employment.
The ministry says about 232,500 businesses were eligible as of Friday for subsidies for retaining jobs amid requests for closures and cutbacks. It has already decided to pay out an equivalent of 1.68 billion dollars.
Officials says it will continue to urge businesses to make use of the subsidy program because it will likely become harder for them to keep workers.
Ed.’s note: The Instafame steel butt culture has officially opened in Japan with young Japanese girls posting hundreds and hundreds of selfies of their newly developed steel butts. Must be caused by the coronascam with young girls staying home turning to steel butt workouts. Nothing really wrong with all the thousands of selfie steel butt images being put up on Instrafame but do they deserve the attributes that they wouldn’t ordinarily receive in society? Here are some of the steel butt culture babes for today.
Ed.’s note: The Japanese have ritualized mask wearing in response to the cornascam almost making it compulsory to wear one. It is anyone’s guess as to how long this charade will continue but it certainly does demonstrate in a stark way how the Japanese population conforms with such rigidity. Now there are complaints about having to wear only white masks in places of work and in schools. It means now the Japanese can’t come up with their creative designer masks complete with white lace and little animals sewn on the outside of masks. The new trend now is to spray a little diluted essential oil like mint on the mask to increase wearing comfort. All you have to do is load up on Vitamin C, Vitamin D (or get out in the sun) and a good source of zinc and you’ll be fine. If you end up in the hospital with the flu make sure you make the staff give you intravenous in high dosages of Vitamin C. That will do the job.
Imagine the enormous profits being made from mask sales where the price of masks has been continuing to climb? Did you get your Abe-issued white mask? Did you know that if you don’t need the masks you can deposit them at locations outside some train stations? The masks will then be given to the poor unfortunate souls who don’t have a mask to save them from COVIDSCAM while nursing homes suffer. How long will one Abe-issued mask get you? A couple of days maybe? What do you do then? Wash it? The chances of children who are being forced (traumatized) to wear masks getting this COV-scam virus are about as likely as getting hit by a bolt of lightening. Now we’re wondering how far Japan is away from implementing a coronascam vaccine on their population?

BEIJING/TOKYO – Jun 10, 2020 – Japan reportedly decided not to join the United States, the United Kingdom and some other countries in “condemning” China over a recently-passed law to safeguard national security in Hong Kong, the semi-autonomous Chinese territory.
According to a report by Japan’s Kyodo news agency on Sunday, Tokyo refused to be in line with the US, Britain and some other states in scolding Beijing for the new security legislation, apparently to avoid generating friction with China, the world’s second-largest economy in nominal GDP.
The report, citing unnamed officials from countries involved as saying a day earlier, added that a further escalation in tension between the US and China over Hong Kong could also complicate Tokyo’s plan to receive Chinese President Xi Jinping as a state guest. President Xi’s visit was scheduled for early April but it has been postponed because both China and Japan agreed to priorities to curb the COVID-19.

Ed.’s note: No matter what store, market or public facility you walk into there is a bottle of alcohol at the entrance for disinfecting your hands. The new religion of Corna is like walking into these facilities and dipping your finger in holy water and making the sign of the cross just as you would going into a Catholic church. The masks are part of the ritual now and represent submission and obedience to the global Corona religion with the religious dogma being the weaponization of the flu virus. Want to read a hilarious story? Read this Japan Times article Masks helped keep Japan’s COVID-19 death toll low, says expert panel, it will make you laugh. Can you please reveal the actual test results and particular strain of the alleged coronavirus that killed these 850 people in Japan?
Land of the Rising Masks

Michael Crichton in his book State of Fear had this to say about the precautionary principle:
The “precautionary principle,” properly applied, forbids the precautionary principle. It is self-contradictory. The precautionary principle therefore cannot be spoken of in terms that are too harsh.
I refer to an article in the British Medical Journal about wearing face masks by Trisha Greenhalgh and colleagues published on April 9 in which they argued as follows:
The precautionary principle is, according to Wikipedia, “a strategy for approaching issues of potential harm when extensive scientific knowledge on the matter is lacking.” The evidence base on the efficacy and acceptability of the different types of face mask in preventing respiratory infections during epidemics is sparse and contested. But covid-19 is a serious illness that currently has no known treatment or vaccine and is spreading in an immune naive population. Deaths are rising steeply, and health systems are under strain.
A couple of comments before reviewing a response printed in a later issue.
• We do not have enough reliable information to state that “covid-19” is a serious illness. It does not have unique symptoms. The supposed virus causing the illness has never been isolated, filtered and purified. Hence the test used, RT-PCR is a black box. We do not know what that test is looking for, and also know that Chinese mathematicians published a paper stating that asymptomatic people are likely to produce a false positive four times out of five. (Keep in mind that Tanzania’s President John Magufuli submitted samples given human names for RT-PCR testing that were really a sheep, a goat and a pawpaw, and all came back positive. It was a beautiful sendup.)
• Covid-19, like the 2003 SARS virus, itself never isolated, filtered and purified, is probably not new or unique, the the symptoms it produces seem to dovetail nicely with a normal cold and flu season.
• Deaths are not rising steeply, at least we cannot know that because we cannot accurately test for the virus, and know the the American Centers for Disease Control, a private corporation, has ordered widespread reclassification of deaths from many other causes as being from Covid-19.
• Health systems are not under strain. They are laying off people. Skeptical citizens visiting hospitals all over the US found them empty, with dancing nurses and ambulance drivers playing video games.
In other words, every single statement in the opening paragraph of the Greenhalgh and colleagues piece is false.
Let’s set all of that aside, and take the article at face. They are saying that even though we do not know anything about the efficacy of wearing face masks to prevent spread of an illusory and unquantifiable disease, the precautionary principle says “go for it.”
I am with Michael Crichton. The precautionary principle, which might also say we should spend trillions now in the face of say, a comet that might approach the earth in 20 years, is nothing but folly and foolishness. We are an adaptable species, and when faced with a real emergency, will respond. If people were not wearing face masks, what would be different? People would be less afraid. That’s all.
I should not talk, however, as I do not believe in SARS-Cov-2, the virus that supposedly causes Covid-19. I do not believe in Covid-19, as it is much too much like ordinary cold and flu to be unique, dangerous, and worthy of shutting down the world. I do not and will not wear a face mask. I think that despite their suggested medical purpose, they have a real ones having nothing to do with public health: 1) Face masks have suggestive power that indicates to people that there really is a dangerous virus when there is not. 2) Face masks intensify the fear that low-information people are feeling due to listening to newscasts and heeding authority figures. It is psychological manipulation, social engineering.
