“Super Wasabi Sushi” for the New French President Macron!

Dear Mr Emanuel Macron Ph.D

Good morning sir.

And congratulations for your decisive victory this morning. I think you have done it once again, crushing the mother of all bombs (MOAB)…….., no, I mean the mother of 3, Mrs Marine Le Pen.

Sir, I knew you were going to win.

Well, to be honest that’s a big fat lie. I’d never imagined you would actually prevail, under the recent circumstances of ruthless terrorism and immigrant crisis across Europe. Of course I remember back in November 2015, 130 innocent people in Paris fell victim to those despicable Muslim extremists.

I was shocked and terrified, totally speechless in utter grief.

Outrageous acts of violence continued across the European continent even after that as you are well aware of.  Nice (pronounced Nee-ce), Belgium, Germany suicide bombers  subsequently led to my conclusion, or prediction – “The mighty French people must be feeling precarious like a pussy cat living under dictator Stalin. They must be thirsty for safety and freedom! So anti-immigrants fighter Le Pen shall prevail!”

‘赤旗少女’と、9条を考える憲法 「記念日」!

今日は、憲法記念日だそうだ。

二日前、渋谷のR246と明治通りの交差点で、赤信号にぶつかった。小雨が降る中、うるさい日本人が愛車 ‘FATTY’ (タイヤが極度に肥満化した米国アラスカ発の太った自転車。雪専用)から一旦降りると、「九条改悪はんたーい!共謀罪はんたーい!」との横断幕をはためかせながら明治通りを行進していく大勢の人々がいる。

「スンマソン、この覇気のない方々は…..!?」

小ラダーに乗って写真をパシャパシャ撮っている女性がいたので、聞いてみる。望遠レンズは、210mmか。

「メーデーのDEMO行進です。ABE政権の間違っているところを正していくよう要求しています!」

「なるほど。メーデーといえば、あそこのノボリにも書いてあるけど’労働者の環境改善’ですね。非正規雇用の賃金UP、意味不明の’正社員崇拝’ の打破など、やるべきことは多々あるね」

「ありがとうございます!わたしたちも、そう信じてるんです」

わたし’たち’、というと、このカメラマンは第三者ではなく、同じグループに所属しているということか。青信号に切り替わるものの、無視して聞いてみる。

「あ、私ですか?赤旗のカメラマンです」

なるほど。どうりでホッペが真っ赤っ赤なわけだ。本稿では、とりあえず ‘マッカーサー’ とのコードネームで呼ぶことにする。

「長靴売れた大臣やら、津波は東北でよかった大臣やら、森友学園やら確かに安倍政権は相当タルンでいる。緊張感はゼロに近い。ただ、キミらの掲げる ‘九条改悪はんたーい’には、反対だな」

そう言うと、赤い靴を履いた女の子の如くあどけない顔をしたマッカーサーの表情が曇った。「ABE政権は憲法改正しようとしています。そうした間違った方向に行く勢力と、わたしたちは断固戦います」

「ちょっと待って。残念ながらぼくは自民党員でないけど、間違った方向に向かっているのは、むしろあのおデブさん率いる北朝鮮や、南シナ海で人工島を7つ埋め立て軍事基地化してしまった中国や、北方領土の択捉や国後にミサイルを配置したロシアだと思うんだけど」

と、うるさい日本人が反論すると

「ああ、まあそれは確かにその通りといえばそのとおりです」

と意外と物分かりのいいマッカーサー将軍。さらに、金正恩がミサイルを発射したら、10分以内には宮益坂に着弾するという危機、その’現実’に触れると、彼女はますます押し黙ってしまった。

「ただ」

「ただ?!」

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!

North Korea’s Kim Jong un should fight SUMO champ Kisenosato

Mt.Fuji is the most classic, aesthetic and symmetric mountain in the world as far as I know. And it is proven by the mere fact that it’s beauty is renowned not only domestically, but also internationally.

“Harumafuji” and “Terunofuji” are both distinguished Mongolian SUMO wrestlers, though their name includes the word ‘FUJI’.

And yesterday, the new Yokozuna or Grand Champion Kisenosato crushed Terunofuji twice to win the Spring SUMO tournament, according to the Associated Press. Its’ truly a little surprise that AP has posted this article on Japan’s indigenous  ‘sport’ – which I must say is in a way an incorrect term, since SUMO is NOT precisely a sport but a Shinto ritual that roots back 1500 years ago.

If you are a foreigner, you may wonder “Boy, aren’t these FATTYS obese! Eating too much rice bowls and ramens?”.

Well, I do not deny that. But remember, these boys are not just a fatty like Mr Michael Moore, but DO have huge muscles and they also train their body (especially the hip-joint between the legs) to make it extremely soft in order to prevent serious injuries.

 

Now.

 

People in North Korea are purportedly eating shoes.

ASICS? NIKE? Onizuka Tiger?! Adidas?!  Who knows. Malnutrition seems rampant, since their authoritarian regime is keen on flooding 90% of its annual budget into its nuclear missile program. Not enough food on the table, and its citizens are skin and bones.

But there’s just one exception. Yes, the “Fatty” Sumo-wrestler-like guy, Kim Jong un.

Japan to beat U.S.A and win the 3rd World Baseball Classic!

Team Japan won the inaugural ‘World Baseball Classic’ (WBC) in 2006. Just four years later, the defending champs prevailed once gain, with the ‘classic’ plays by big names such as Ichiro and Yu Darvish.

Just as for a quick notice, Darvish is a Japanese super hurler that plays for Major League Baseball (MLB)’s Texas Rangers. However,  since his dad is Iranian, some anticipate that ‘daddy’ may be perpetually blocked from entering not only the ball park, but the United States.

Thank you, Mr President. I still love your wig sir.

 

Now, where were we?!

That’s right, the WBC. In 2013 tournament, the defending champion Team Japan succumbed to Puerto Rico in the Semi final, or the ‘Championship Round’.

And here we are now in 2017, only four teams left! (See below)

 

Baseball prohibited in North Korea by Mr Kim!?

Japan, Puerto Rico, Netherlands and the U.S.A. The ‘Big 4’. South Korea by the way (not North, Dear leader Mr Kim allegedly prohibits its 22 million citizens from playing the sport founded by ‘Imperial Americans’) was initially seen as the rival of Japan as had been in previous tournaments, but they have already been marginalized in this tournament, just like the impeached beauty(and the FMR President) Ms.Pak Geun hye and its politics. They couldn’t make it the 2nd round.

Puerto Rico is playing the Netherlands right now (as I write this article. 3-3! Super tight game) in the first semi final match. But what interests me more than the game is their ‘political status’.

According to the Wikipedia, this small island nation of 3 million is ‘not a U.S state’ , but the “Puerto Ricans were collectively made U.S citizens” in 1917 by the Jones-Shafroth Act. This article argues that ‘U.S imposed citizenship in order to draft Puerto Rican men into the army as American entry to WW1 became likely’.

It is a feasible assumption regarding the fact colonial imperialism was rampant in those days. And whats more striking, the Puerto Ricans today are deprived of their rights to vote for the congress or Presidential election despite the fact they are ostensibly ‘U.S citizens’. I’ve heard a chubby woman from Guam make the same complaint in Tokyo Narita Airport in January this year. That’s right, these two ‘nations’ are not even a sovereign state.

When the United States of America’s founding principles are ‘Democracy’, ‘Equality’ and ‘Human Rights’, their current double-standard in these two ‘pawns’ is difficult to comprehend and simply indefensible. Of course, I understand that the $70 billion debt by the Puerto Rican government was an issue in last year’s U.S Presidential election.

The reality that San Juan is unsustainable without Washington’s financial aid is not to be argued. However, amid the recent rise of nationalism and Brexit movement (Scotland’s proposal of its 2nd referendum on independence has been rejected by Mrs May), the outcome of Puerto Rico’s upcoming referendum on June 11, 2017 on whether to choose between a statehood and independence is surely something we should all focus upon as advocates of fundamental rights.

Oops! Please remember I’m no anti-Trump or anti-American. I’m nothing but an Outspoken Samurai of the 21st century thirsty for truth and fairness, just like the famous Fox News.
