Tokyo predicts Marine Le Pen will become the next French president

The next President of France will be Jean-Marie Le Pen’s daughter, albeit good or bad.

Marie and Marine.

Confusing as their names are, so is the phenomenal shift in the western politics these days. Brexit, Trump and ‘Marie’.

From a Japanese perspective, it is simply unimaginable how father’s name is ‘Marie’ and the daughter ‘Marine’.

I mean, it even sounds like a pure French joke.

No guy in Tokyo is called ‘Yoko’. John Lennon’s wife?! Absolutely. But it’s no boy’s name. It’s like calling Sean Lennon ‘John-Yoko’ Lennon.

Although I may be a nobody in the ‘Far East ‘ (seen from Paris, that is) living in obscurity, this French naming sense is already inexplicable to say the least. And the upcoming election on April 23rd to decide the next ruler of the ‘land of the croissant’ is not only unpredictable like Trump, but inexplicable by nature.

Le Pen daughter is not ‘Far right’

Recent homicides in Europe by Muslim extremists make Le Pen (for get the other ‘Marie’ – he’s just a detail in French politics) appear as a savior rather than a ‘dangerous far right extremist’ as often labeled by the western corporate medias like the AP.

I emphatically claim so due to the fact the so called ‘Far left’ candidate, Melenchon’s manifesto is no different from that of Le Pen – which is to pull France out of the EU.

Furthermore, this newcomer is also lobbying to quit the ‘obsolete’ NATO.

Despite the fact, the former is labeled as the far right and the latter far left.

Why?!

A ‘tougher stance on immigrants’?!

Well Le Pen is surely claiming to deport illegal immigrants mainly from the former French colonies in the North African -sub Sahara region, but taking into account the perpetual suicide bombing by Paris government’s formidable adversary – which is of course the IS and its devout followers, I believe it is only natural to suspend immigrants for the time being till things settle down.

And isn’t that the unshakable reason why she’s surging hugely in the recent polls?!

I unequivocally refute any sort of racism, discrimination and segregation. But the recent bloodshed on innocent civilians in Monaco, Nice, German cities, Belgium and Paris is not only unacceptable, but has probably reached the level of intolerance amongst the Europeans as a whole.

And furthermore, it is nothing got do with ‘racism’. To lead this argument towards that direction is pretty much hypocritical, to my understanding.

That being said, it is only natural for me to reach an unshakable conclusion of a first women president in the land of croissant.

Oh, but you know what?! Croissants in Tokyo taste better these days!

Good Rising!

Doraemon & Naruto will save the world from ‘Pyongyang vs Trump War’

Pundits across the globe are warning the citizens of Tokyo, Seoul and the G7 nations that the ‘dinner is ready’.

Exuberant Trump is ready for a pre-emptive strike on North Korea, they all say, which to me is no surprise.

But wait a minute.

Who’s going to be the ‘victor’ of this upcoming war?! Asaad? No. Mao Asada (Japanese Olympian Skater that retired yesterday)? No. Putin San? No. Mr Xi?! Absolutely not.

Ruthless Kim Jong un vs relentless Trump. It’s highly unlikely they’ll have a ‘hamburger lunch’ anytime soon, but instead a ‘Hamburger – Kimchi War’ could begin in a blink of an eye considering the fact USS Carl Vinson is already on a stand by in Sea of Japan.

Toshiba duped by an American phoney Westinghouse Electric

The viral video of FAA officials forcing an American citizen (not an illegal immigrant) Mr David Dao on UA Flight 3411 was merely repugnant.

Westinghouse Electric’s CEO Danny Roderick who filed for bankruptcy recently was another fraudulent phoney that de facto ‘eradicated’ its parent company Toshiba.

The management of Toshiba were not only dumb, but critically complacent as to be victimized by phoney Roderick’s cold blooded charade.

Since I have no bigotry, I am well aware of the fact that there are quite a few good hearted Americans on its soil. But at the same time those covered on western mainstream medias are usually phoneys and ‘pathological liars’ to my knowledge.

Trump pledged ‘America First’ and won the votes. After 100 days in office, we’ve learned that he’s doing exactly the opposite. Bombing Syria, and next Pyongyang. You call his recent moves ‘World Policeman USA’.

Of course I do not condone the North Korean authoritarian regime nor its biggest communist ally. That being said, Trump’s pressure on Xi Jinping in Florida a couple of days ago was a prudent one.

Hamburger-Kimchi War

But is he actually going to wage a bloody ‘Hamburger – Kimchi’ battle?!
If Heinz made ketchup is the ‘blood’ , then the color of Korean chilly is also the same. I was stunned when I visited Pan Munjon – or the 38th parallel about a decade ago that it was only 40 kilometers from Myongdong, the core shopping center in Seoul.

So if the battle does begin, the South Koreans including the incarcerated beauty Ms Pak Geun hye are likely to fall prey to the Kim Jong un invasion to say the least.

Japan on the other hand may also suffer, with Kim’s unpredictable Nodong missiles presumably crushing into Roppongi or Kyoto or Miyajima. Who knows?!

I am pretty wary and skeptical of the ‘100 % accuracy’ of the so called the US built THAAD system. It is super pricey(unsurprisingly $ billions) , and better be ultra hi tech, but still when Pyongyang fires 30 missiles towards Tokyo Tower it is unthinkable that they’ll be all shot down.

And if the accuracy is just 50%, then it will prove that THAAD is a total failure falling far short of what it’s worth.

It will surely be an embarrassing moment for the Pentagon as well.

Doraemon Go

Japan has no nukes, but instead invented ‘Doraemon’- a super hi tech cat like robot from the 22nd century after WW2.

This ‘cat’ is 1000 times well equipped compared to Mr Tom ‘impossible’ Cruise. If you don’t believe me, please just google it. You’ll know why.

Doraemon is a huge international sensation across Asia. Thais love him, as well as the Chinese and the Koreans. Controversial UA flight’s Mr Dao was depicted as ‘disruptive and belligerent ‘ – according to the CEO of the embattled aviation company. But that usage is blatantly incorrect, while Kim and Trump perfectly matches that depiction, cynically speaking.

Doraemon’ s amicable character, as well as his ‘Moshimo Box’ shall save our planet from entering WW3. He’ll go inside the phone booth(box) and yell ‘If there were no A Bombs in this world!’ – then the whole crisis shall be over.

What you say inside the Moshimo Box becomes a reality! And if by any chance that doesn’t work, NARUTO shall step in. He’s another Japanese Superhero that can make a huge difference in world affairs, to my knowledge. And my pure wish is, ladies and gents….. have ‘Tokyo’ play the crucial role of NARUTO- a funny but super powerful Samurai who loves Ramen( instant type too).

But in conclusion, that’s definitely a ‘mission impossible’ unfortunately, I must admit. Our cowardly, unthinking pacifist constitution set up back in 1946 is somehow still widely effective till this very day, depriving our citizens of the indispensable Samurai Bushido spirit to stand up when needed.

Our subservient attitude towards Washington is a huge surprise even to quite a few Americans friends I know of. If the British mock themselves as the ‘panting puppy’ of the Whitehouse, so are we. In that sense, Trump was perfectly correct when he pointed out during last year’s Presidential election that Japan shall find a way to defend itself against Pyongyang, instead of counting on the US – especially when the Japan-American 1960 defense treaty is hilariously ‘one sided’.

Correct.

You foreign readers of this blog shall be appalled to actually read that in our ‘1946 constitution’ made by Big Mac or Douglas McArthur, it stipulates that ‘the belligerency of the state shall never be maintained’.

I’m not joking fellas, it’s true.

UA flight’s David Dao’s belligerency : 5%

Donald Trump’s belligerency: 75%

Kim Jong un’s belligerency: 90%

Japan’s belligerency: 0%

OMG, isn’t it ridiculous. Maggie, Maggie Thatcher ma’am can you hear me?!

So.

What are we waiting for?! A missile strike by Mr Hamburger of Kimchi-Fatty or Doraemon?!

No, to be honest, NARUTO is whom I count on the most.

Come! I’ll cook a really yummy pork based doro-doro Ramen for you, with tons of garlic! Of course it’s a dream never come true. He’ll never appear.

Good Rising!

JAPAN BROADCASTING Editorial「Outspoken Samurai」 by Yujiro Taniyama 

Irasshaimase!  いらっしゃいませ   (‘Welcome’ in Japanese)

And welcome to the ‘Land of the Rising FUN’.

Good Sushi, Good life. Good Sake, Good life. And Good Tokyo, Good Tomorrow.

Escape from the cul-de-sac of flooding ‘fake news’ and tumultuous daily routine, but instead grab a can of beer and your passport ‘n cheap LCC ticket ‘n come ‘n hop into the Hakone onsen just an hour or so train ride from Haneda airport or Shinjuku or Yokohama!

Ohayo Gozaimass!

Just as for a quick introduction, my name is Yujiro Taniyama. Though some ignorant phony may mistaken me for an illegal immigrant from Chongqing, China – let me warn you folks, I am a proud Japanese national with a bloody red 10 year Japanese passport! If Mr Donald J. Trump is the 45th US President, then I am the ‘Outspoken Samurai’.

 

Outspoken Samurai of the 21st century. Sushi Fighter.

And today I am honored to announce the launch of 「OUTSPOKEN SAMURAI 」、a challenging editorial that discloses my daily clandestine thoughts on world affairs, from entertainment, Anime to Melania Trump.

It will be in both English & Japanese, and written back and forth in these two languages.

 

SUPER GAIJINS

8,346,969 foreign tourists, or Gaijins (means foreign national in Japanese. To avoid misunderstanding, this term is NOT a pejorative – all my Gaijin friends in Tokyo loves calling themselves ‘Tokyo Gaijin’) visited Japan back 10 years ago, in 2007.

In 2010, the figure was still 8,611,175. Then in 2013, for the first time in Japan’s long winding history since Emperor Jinmu 660 B.C, the Gaijin tourists hit the 10 million benchmark! And what’s astonishing, the figure skyrocketed tremendously onwards. 13,413,467 (2014) , 19,737,409 (2015. Source: JNTO) , and last year finally surpassed 24 million! OMG

As the wave of protectionism and anti-immigration spreads across the globe thanks to Mr Donald and friends (including the mighty smart Brits), my narrow path to victory and diversity goes quite the opposite.

I embrace internationalism and globalization.

Having grown up in Adelaide and Bangkok myself, I refute any sort of racism having been bullied and downplayed due to my ‘flat face’ and the color of my skin in ‘white Australia back in the ’80s when my heros MJ, Madonna and George Michael had began to dominate the MTV!

Anyways, one of my secret mission of this 「OUTSPOKEN SAMURAI 」is to connect the dots, connect the people for a better understanding of the world we live in. Prudence and benevolence.

But at the same I am the obnoxious Outspoken Samurai fellas, ready to become a smelly villain by my adversaries if needed. We’ve got to speak out in what you believe in!

Conformity is definitely a huge problem within the Japanese society and mentality, and it hampers innovation. U.S.A is definitely not the ‘Greatest Nation in the World’ (lol) as was often quoted by Obama and still is by Trump – but I must admit one greatness of America is its potential for self innovation. When J.F.K was assassinated more than half a century a go, blacks were openly referred to as ‘Stinking Niggers’ and were prohibited from attending same schools and movie theaters as the whites. But 50 years on, you have a half-black-President.

That sort of drastic change would never take place in Tokyo, unfortunately. Innovation man, I say it again, innovation! And that’s exactly why we need the damn Gaijins!

SONY is dead, SHARP is dead ( it’s Taiwanese owned now to say the least), and now TOSHIBA is gone. Thank you Mr Westinghouse. The ‘smart’ Japanese elites were duped by our fellow Americans once again)

 

Who’s next?!

Good Rising!
Not good morning, ‘coz I’m standing on the  land of the Rising Sun!

谷山雄二朗が書く二刀流の社説「OUTSPOKEN SAMURAI」Japan Broadcasting

こんにちは。うるさい日本人、谷山雄二朗です。

本日、新しいコンテンツがキックオフしました。

その名もズバリ、「JB」。別名 「OUTSPOKEN SAMURAI 」。

何を隠そう、格好良く言うならば、JAPAN BROADCASTING . NET – JB の社説のようなものです。

Editorial, Column, Blog, Essay, 書き物。

Global Digital Entertainment.

ちなみに、この「JB」に関しては、次のacronym, すなわち頭字語を意味している。

J = Japan、Jump(跳ぶ)、Join(合体する、つなぐ)、Joke(ユーモア、滑稽、じょうだん、おどけ)、Jubilant(歓喜と熱狂あふれる)、Journey、Journalism、地侍、熟慮、自立国家、自尊独立、神社、JoyJump

B=Broadcast, Bushido, 冒険、Boundless(無限の)、Borderless(国境なき)、文章、Bold(大胆)、Blog、ばか者たれ、Bilingual、Buddhism(仏教)、爆発力、Bilateral(相互の)、Benevolence(寛容の精神), Battle (戦い)、Ballistic(弾道の)、Beautiful, Beer, Beginning(はじまり)、Biscuit, Brave(勇敢な)、Bravo(ブラボー)、Brightly(明るく!)

「英国にhumorあり、米国にjokeあり、そしてフランスにwitあり」とはよく言われるが、では日本人の国民性とは何ぞや。勤勉は確かに美徳なのかもしれないが、それも一昔前のこと。過労死が社会問題しているこの頃だが、自分の仕事は終わっているのに「先輩がまだ帰宅しないから」とかいう理由で、夜10時まで社内に残ることはもはや “勤勉” でも何でもなく、思考停止以外の何ものでもない。

どうも日本人は根本的に’まじめすぎる’。それでは、InnovationにつながるIDEASはどうしても生まれにくくなる。ただでさえ超マニュアル社会なのだから。

よってこれから始めるこの「JB」では、あえてその真面目の真逆を行き、あえて「不真面目さ & ゆるさ」をも重視しつつアップデートしていこうと思う。そう、最も軽いとされる元素ヘリウムよりも軽く、気張らずに。

“OUTSPOKEN SAMURAI” は、なんせ我が社の「社説」。

社是を重んじつつも、’うるさい日本人’の直感を読者に話しかけるようなスタイルでぶつけていきたい。
