Reuters News Police Removes Comment on Japan’s Corrupt Politics

Posted by feww on October 20, 2014

Censoring comments reveals Reuters want of journalistic integrity

A comment concerning the corrupt state of politics in Japan, posted at by one of our readers, was disallowed/ removed by Reuters news police.

The reader contended, and we’ve confirmed, that the comment contained original quotes from a book written by a prominent Japanese businessman, humanitarian and author, Toshihiko Abe, who was a former Director of European and American Operations at Casio Ltd.

The book, titled “Japan’s Hidden Face: A Call for Radical Change In Japanese Society & Commerce,” published by BainBridge Books, Philadelphia, is available in the United States  and Japan

The comment, which was submitted to Reuters and copied to Fire-Earth, is as follows:

In his book, “Japan’s Hidden Face,” the prominent Japanese businessman and author Toshihiko Abe says:

In Japan, although the prime minister is “the leader of the nation,” it’s “someone else sitting behind the scene [who] holds the real power. He can have the Diet designate whomever he wants to be prime minister, and manipulate him as he like, though he has no legal ground to do so at all. His power simply derives from money. This makes all LDP leaders absorbed in a money game, rather than working out good policies for the people. For the last [fifty] years, politicians, government officials and businessmen have built up a triangle of interests.” [P177]

“[The Boss] can simply replace his robot prime minister when necessary.” [page 183]

“Businesses provide ministers and government officials with positions in private companies after retirement. If government officials are faithful to LDP rulers, an easy and comfortable life is guaranteed for the rest of their lives.” [page 184]

This begs the question, at whose behest did Reuters news police remove the highly informative material that has previously been published by a respectable publisher?

Why Is Reuters So Afraid Of Truth?

    Deadly Airbag Maker Takata Agrees to Pay $1B to Settle Airbag Criminal Probe that Led to 11 Deaths in the U.S.

    Japanese automotive supplier Takata was slammed Friday with a $1 billion penalty from the U.S. Department of Justice for its misconduct in the largest automotive recall in U.S. history. Three senior executives were also indicted for their role in the cover-up that led to a total of 15 deaths and left hundreds of drivers and passengers injured by shrapnel from faulty airbags.

    The settlement includes a $25 million criminal penalty, while Takata will also pay $850 million in restitution to automakers who purchased its defective airbags. Another $125 million will go towards a compensation fund for those harmed by the malfunctioning bags. On top of the fatalities, at least 184 people were injured in the U.S. alone.

    The authorities should also sue the human feces (government) of Japan for failure to disclose the number of Takata-related deaths in that shitpit of a country.

    The ‘Panama Papers’ and ‘Regime Change’: Who is Behind ‘The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists’ (ICIJ)?
    imothy Alexander Guzman, Silent Crow News – The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) is based right in the belly of the beast, Washington D.C. The ICIJ is an offshoot of the Center for Public Integrity (CPI). In an interesting note, ultra-propagandist CNN’s Christiane Amanpour was a former board member of the organization. The CPI is also funded by the CIA-connected Ford Foundation, George Soros’s ‘Open Society Foundation’, The Rockefeller Family Fund and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund of the international banking cartel, the Rockefeller family.

    The list of the main-stream media (MSM) news outlets has partnered with the ICIJ serve the political and financial establishment. The list includes the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), the Guardian (UK) and the Huffington Post (US). The ICIJ also partnered with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty which was established during the Cold War as a CIA front to broadcast anti-Soviet propaganda in Eastern Europe. In 2014, a France 24 titled ‘’Radio Free Europe back on frontline over Ukraine’ reported that “A quarter of a century after it helped topple totalitarian Communist regimes in Eastern Europe, the US-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty is duelling Moscow again, this time in a media war over the Ukraine crisis.” Journalist and author David Satter, a former Moscow correspondent for the Financial Times who claimed Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the apartment bombings across Russia in 1999 was an advisor at one time for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. Well-known establishment mouthpieces such as the New York Times and the Washington Post has also partnered with the ICIJ who are highly influential in the Anglo-American foreign policy agenda for the Military Industrial Complex.

    The ICIJ is also supported by the Open Society Foundation and the Ford Foundation. The Ford Foundation’s connection to the CIA is a well-documented fact since the 1940’s. Frances Stonor Saunders, the author of ‘Who Paid the Piper? The CIA and the Cultural Cold War’ wrote “the CIA considers foundations such as Ford “The best and most plausible kind of funding cover”. Open Society Foundation is another regime change organization run by billionaire Zionist George Soros who wants Putin removed from power has collaborated on a number of occasions with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), another regime change organization.

    chimpanzees have “no human rights,” says a U.S. court.

    “A chimpanzee is not entitled to the same rights as people and does not have be freed from captivity by its owner, a US court has ruled.”

    It cannot be recognized as a “legal person” as it “cannot bear any legal duties.”

    “Needless to say, unlike human beings, chimpanzees cannot bear any legal duties, submit to societal responsibilities or be held legally accountable for their actions.”

    Freedom of press? Censorship? Oppression? Democracy? Fascism of the worst kind?
    It makes absolutely no difference whatever to the Japanese because they are probably the most dumb-downed nation in the so-called developed world. They couldn’t tell their sushi from Shinola!

    Japanese are kept mentally shackled by terror and domination, cradle to grave. Their system demands total obedience, or death!

    The discredited media shills, Reuters, have now removed the entire comment section.
    Was that something you said?

    Here’s one about the freedom of press in Japan…

    My blog had links to about 20,000 reports of rape and other acts of sexual violence perpetrated against woman by Japanese police officers, teachers and other civil servants over a period of four years.

    In 2010, all of the reports, majority of which were published by Mainichi (, were removed from the Internet in one fell swoop on government orders.

    Japan’s new Economy, Trade, and Industry Minister’s political funds spent at S & M bar!! [This section regarding the “discredited news agency” was removed. Editor]

    Yoichi Miyazawa has been forced to admit that his staff had claimed expenses after visiting a sadomasochistic bar in Hiroshima.

    Mr Miyazawa replaced Yuko Obuchi, one of the two ministers who resigned over a funding scandal.

    “Mr Miyazawa, 64, is the nephew of late PM Kiichi Miyazawa, and cousin of the current foreign minister Fumio Kishida.”

    [Obuchi is a daughter of late PM Keizo Obuchi, the head of yet another Japanese political dynasty.]
