90th Prime Minister of Japan
The brutal assassination of Prime Minister Abe in July this year shocked Japan and has produced large and unexpected consequences for the nation´s politics. In this episode, we examine the fallout of the assassination on Abe's legacy, and on Japan: What are the consequences of Abe's association with the Unification Church for the role of religion in politics more generally? How much of Abe's political legacy will survive his assassination? And, how has current Prime Minister Kishida and the LDP dealt with the challenges brought about by the controversial state funeral that was accorded to Abe? To discuss these questions, Kenneth Bo Nielsen is joined by a long-term collaborator, Paul Midford, professor of political science at Meiji Gakuin University in Yokohama.

If you think Reverend Sun Myoung Moon was merely interested in mass marriages in baseball stadiums, then buckle up, because there is a whole lot to learn about the vast empire built by the now late religious figure who used anti-communist sentiment and Christianity to begin a following in South Korea in the 1950s, and then gain far-reaching influence with conservative and far-right movements in the United States starting in the 1970s and lasting well up to today, including participation in the Capitol riot of January 6th, 2021 as well as the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the summer of 2022.This is a cult that has a firm monetary grip on media and governments across the world, and this episode only begins to scratch the surface.Also, Allison answers a listener question on how she feels about the phrase "Drinking the Kool-Aid."Additional Info:Unification Church Wiki:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unification_Church#Background_and_originsSteven Hassan's BITE Model of Authoritarian Control:https://freedomofmind.com/cult-mind-control/bite-model/List of Organizations and Businesses Owned by or Affiliated with the Unification Church:https://freedomofmind.com/exclusive-list-of-entities-closely-associated-with-sun-myung-moon/SPLC Article on Rod of Iron Ministries (Moonie offshoot cult)https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/2021/10/08/rod-iron-antigovernment-christian-right-and-far-right-movements-join-freedom-festivalVice Documentary on Rod of Iron Freedom Festival:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_JhtYm3-zYHow Reverend Moon Made Sushi Big in America:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zhZnvvi_lAAccount of a Former Moonie:https://www.insider.com/to-the-moon-and-back-lisa-kohn-what-its-like-to-be-former-moonie-2018-8Show Credits:Graphics -- Nathaniel Dickson: http://ndickson.comMusic -- Spencer Morelock, Ken DicksonDing Dong Darkness Time Media:Twitter: @dddarknesstimeInstagram: dddarknesstimeGmail: firstname.lastname@example.org

Politics is never conducted in a vacuum. You say something, there's a reaction, somebody is offended, somebody is impacted, somebody has decided to take a counter position of some sort. And this has been made abundantly clear. As we look back to last weekend. Much was made about hurricane Ian and the impacts that we were going to see as a result of the storm coming in. But there was another storm that only flashed for a brief moment in time. And that storm was the storm involving vice president Kamala Harris, making an outstanding tour to Northeast Asia. You'll recall, many of the pundits laughed this off, many of the critiquers laughed us off. I played the clip a couple of times, where vice president Kamala Harris, going to pay her respects to Shinzo Abe's funeral there in Japan, stopping off in South Korea going to the DMZ and then of course, acknowledging it mistakenly, of course, we understand that, that the North Koreans were one of our long term allies. Well, you know, this is a real problem. Last week, Kamala Harris made a major blunder in calling North Korea our ally. And in the last 72 hours, they've replied by testing missiles, they're shooting missiles at Japan. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Hong Kong calls time on zero-Covid, ending quarantine measures but hopes are still dim that China will follow suit.

And in Japan the state funeral of former Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe this week drew many world leaders and Japan's imperial family, but the proceedings were somewhat overshadowed by protesters who marched on Japan's parliament.

As it holds sham referendums in eastern Ukraine and chaotically mobilises troops, what is Russia's master plan? Plus: The EU's concerns about Serbia's relationship with Russia and why Japan's former prime minister Shinzo Abe's funeral is proving so divisive.
*) Kremlin admits call-up 'errors' but no decision to close border The Kremlin has admitted errors during the mobilisation of reservists for the military action in Ukraine and said no decision has been taken to close Russia's borders. It has also admitted that there have been cases when the mobilisation decree was violated, but added that the instances of non-compliance were decreasing. President Vladimir Putin last week announced the call-up of thousands of reservists for the conflict in Ukraine, sparking protests and a rush among Russian men for the borders. *) Greek military buildup: Türkiye won't fail to defend itself, Erdogan vows Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has slammed Greece over its latest provocations, saying his country will not fail to defend its rights and interests. Erdogan's remarks came after Turkish army drones recorded Greek deployment of armoured vehicles on two Aegean islands — which is in violation of international law. Türkiye has summoned the Greek ambassador and called for an end to violations on the Aegean islands and restoring their non-military status, according to the Foreign Ministry. *) Russia school shooting kills 15, including children At least 15 people, including 11 children, have been killed after a man opened fire at his former school in central Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin denounced the "inhuman terrorist attack" in the city of Izhevsk (E-zeevsk), the Kremlin said. According to investigators, the attacker — who killed himself — "was wearing a black top with Nazi symbols and a balaclava" when his body was discovered. *) Japan holds controversial state funeral for assassinated Shinzo Abe Japan has held a controversial state funeral for assassinated former prime minister Shinzo Abe, with thousands of mourners, including dignitaries, attending the ceremony in Tokyo. Gatherers offered flowers and prayers in honour of Abe, even as the decision to hold a state funeral has sparked protests due to his policies panned by critics and the costs of the ceremony. Abe was Japan's longest-serving prime minister known for cultivating international alliances and his "Abenomics" economic strategy. And finally… *) NASA strikes asteroid in key test of planetary defence A NASA spaceship has struck an asteroid seven million miles away in order to deflect its orbit, succeeding in a historic test of preventing a celestial object from devastating life on Earth. The director of NASA's planetary science division hailed a new era after its Double Asteroid Redirection Test impactor hit its target, a 530-foot space rock, at 2314 GMT on Monday. To be sure, the asteroid posed no threat to Earth, but NASA has deemed the experiment important to carry out before an actual need is discovered.
Depuis l'assassinat le 8 juillet dernier de l'ancien Premier ministre Shinzo Abe par un homme qui lui reprochait d'être lié à l'Église de l'Unification, la parole des victimes de cette secte s'est libérée. Partout, les témoignages affluent. Ces récits de familles brisées, à la fois par l'endoctrinement et par le surendettement, choquent les Japonais. De notre correspondant à Tokyo, L'Église de l'Unification compte un demi-million d'adeptes environ au Japon. Cette jeune femme en a fait partie jusqu'à l'âge de 20 ans, contrainte et forcée par ses parents, des croyants fervents qui, dit-elle, lui ont « fait vivre un enfer ». « Mes parents m'ont élevée dans la hantise que mon esprit soit "corrompu par Satan", comme ils disaient. La perspective d'une telle damnation me terrifiait. Ils faisaient tellement de dons à la secte qu'on devait se serrer la ceinture à la maison pour joindre les deux bouts, témoigne-t-elle. Jamais de cadeaux à Noël ou à mon anniversaire. Aucune sortie au restaurant ou au cinéma. Mes vêtements usés, ils les rapiéçaient au lieu d'en acheter de nouveaux. Tout cela m'a valu d'être martyrisée à l'école. J'étais le souffre-douleur de ma classe. On me traitait de "sale pauvre", on me disait que je sentais mauvais. » Une autre jeune femme nous raconte qu'elle a été rançonnée par ses propres parents, eux aussi adeptes de la secte : « Ils subissaient une pression financière terrible, car, comme tous les fidèles, ils devaient remplir des quotas mensuels de donations. L'Église décrétait que ceux qui ne respectaient pas ces quotas étaient gangrenés par Satan, et donc promis à l'enfer. Cela terrorisait tellement mes parents qu'ils m'ont obligée à travailler pendant mes études : quelques heures tous les soirs dans des magasins ou des restaurants. Et l'argent que je gagnais avec ces petits boulots, ils me le confisquait pour le donner à la secte. » ► À lire aussi : Japon : les révélations sur l'entrisme de la secte Moon en haut lieu suscitent un vaste débat L'Église de l'Unification organise de gigantesques cérémonies de mariages collectifs lors desquelles des milliers de couples de fidèles sont unis. Un homme, qui l'a vécu en 1992, nous décrit comment cela se passait : « Cela n'a pas été une partie de plaisir. Les candidats au mariage devaient à la fois jeûner pendant une semaine avant la cérémonie, recruter trois nouveaux adeptes, et verser près de deux millions de yens à l'Église : 15 000 euros, environ. En plus, mon épouse, c'est le révérend Moon qui l'a choisie, et elle ne me plaisait pas trop. Je l'ai quand même épousée parce que, selon la secte, refuser la personne choisie par le révérend au nom de Dieu, c'est se condamner à l'enfer éternel. J'étais endoctriné au point de croire de telles balivernes ». Depuis, il a divorcé et a quitté la secte. Ces récits indignent les Japonais, au point que de plus en plus, sur les réseaux sociaux, l'assassin de Shinzo Abe est présenté, non pas comme un tueur, mais comme une victime. Il aurait utilement mis en lumière les agissements malfaisants de la secte Moon. Les dons et les appels à la clémence en sa faveur se multiplient. Et chaque jour, dans sa cellule, l'homme reçoit des messages de soutien et des cadeaux, comme des mangas ou des friandises, pour l'aider à supporter sa détention.

In this special episode of History Impossible--and The Eastern Border--I was lucky enough to sit down with the host OF The Eastern Border, Kristaps Andrejsons, in what I am calling my fastest guest turnaround I've done with the show so far. It was meant to be, however, given the whirlwind of news that continues to come from his area of expertise, that is, the Eastern Border, namely involving the Russo-Ukrainian War, and above all, how all that relates to the history of that region. Because, as is always the case with me and most other people who study history, it was hard not to feel like we have been here before, in psychology and spirit, just with newer, deadlier and wilder technology. Because you see, comrades and friends: the assassination (or attempt thereof) of major political figures appears to be on the rise again. This is most definitely the case in Russia, where we've seen the daughter of Aleksandr Dugin get caught in a car bomb and eight (yes, EIGHT) oil-baron oligarchs die of mysterious circumstances. But, as Kristaps and I discussed, it seems to be part of a much broader, still developing story, with the assassination of former Prime Minister Abe in Japan and the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh in the United States. In other words, much of this reeks of the time period stretching from the 1880s (especially in Russia) all the way to 1914.Thanks to these hard-to-miss, hard-to-deny parallels, Kristaps helped take me down a wild rabbit hole of philosophical discussion and speculation on how the future must be shaped while still respecting the importance of the past and ultimately we came to some very interesting conclusions, both a little frightening and pragmatic. The world is a dark place right now, and looking at its past does very little to dissuade us of this notion, but this is what he and I do. He's been working harder than most people I know (if not all people I know) and was immensely tired when we spoke, but he powered through and I can't thank him enough for his time and conversation.

Tommy and Ben discuss the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, protest in Sri Lanka, President Biden's trip to the Middle East, the latest news from Ukraine and Brittney Griner's prosecution in Russia, Condoleezza Rice's new job and John Bolton weighs in on coups. Then Ben talks with long-time diplomat and Asia expert Danny Russel about the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, politics in Japan, and Abe's legacy.
To kick off the hour, TPUSA Contributor and Host of the podcast, 'Human Events Daily,' Jack Posobiec joins Charlie to reveal the latest intelligence breaking around the former Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe. Next, Jack unpacks everything pouring out of the latest trove of troubling material being leaked from Hunter Biden's personal devices. Also in this hour, founding editor of Compact Magazine and longtime friend of the show, Sohrab Ahmari, joins Charlie to expose a sneaky strategy being employed by vaccine giant Moderna to skyrocket their shots to seemingly overnight success—and how they're trying to make you pay for it all with your tax dollars. And finally, to close the show, Charlie gets Sohrab's take on a shocking video of a drag queen paying a child to dance for money, what we should do in response to these types of "performances," and what it all means for the future of Western Civilization.

On this episode of The Charlie Kirk Show, with the backdrop of a rising China and continued geopolitical fallout from the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Charlie assesses America's defense posture and war readiness. Are we a serious enough nation given the current state of our Commander-In-Chief? Are our military leaders committed enough to the proper tasks that would ensure success in a cold war that seems primed to run hot at any point? Charlie walks through the case for why the answer to both of those questions is a resounding 'NO' — highlighting along the way new updates from the Pentagon, including transgender troop policies, recruitment woes, and the forthcoming discharge of unvaccinated service members.
