Anti-Vaccine Japan Has World’s Lowest Child Death Rate & Highest Life Expectancy

  • Anti-Vaccine Japan Has World’s Lowest Child Death Rate & Highest Life Expectancy
    by AMANDA-MARY, https://healingoracle.ch/
    Fact: Japan has the lowest infant mortality rate following ban on mandatory vaccinations, they urge other countries to follow this firm stance

    The citizens of Japan are statistically proven to be the healthiest and longest-living people in the world. The country also has the lowest infant mortality rate on the planet. It may come as no surprise to many that the Japanese Government banned a number of vaccines that are currently mandatory in the United States and has strict regulations in place for other Big Pharma drugs and vaccines in general. Japan’s anti-vax policies have long been criticised by vaccine pushers in the US who claim that vaccinating the public “promotes health.”

    However
    , Japanese people live longer, healthier lives than Americans, with babies born in the US twice as likely to die in infancy than those born in Japan. It’s clear to see that Western nations have a lot to learn from the Japanese when it comes to their approach to vaccinations and issues facing public health. The Japanese are vaccine sceptics, to put it simply, and due to adverse reactions suffered by Japanese children, have banned many vaccines.


    The Japanese are well educated on the dangers of over-vaccinating their children and oppose the use of multi-shot vaccinations such as the MMR vaccine. Following a record number of children developing adverse reactions, including meningitis, loss of limbs, and even sudden death, the Japanese government banned the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine from its vaccination program, despite facing serious opposition from Big Pharma.

    Despite the fact that it has been blamed in vaccine courts for causing autism, vaccine supporters still deny the correlation between the MMR vaccination and skyrocketing rates of autism spectrum disorder, which now affects at least one in 45 children, with even higher rates of diagnosis among boys. However, the vaccine carries other serious risks in addition to the autism links, which has led to an outright ban of MMR jab in Japan.

    The MMR Vaccine’s Tragic History in Japan
    The MMR vaccine was introduced in Japan in April 1989, and parents who refused the compulsory vaccine were fined. After three months of analysis, officials realised that one in 900 children developed adverse reactions to the vaccine, a rate that was 2,000 times higher than the expected rate. Officials had hoped to resolve the problem by switching to another version of the vaccine, but the excessive amount of adverse reactions persisted, with one in 1,755 children affected.

Russia, China, Japan, Turkey, Iran and Iraq Ditch US Dollar In Bilateral Trade

  • DAHBOO777 Published on Sep 3, 2018
    Following Iran and Iraq’s decision to no longer use the US dollar in bilateral trade, RT looks at world leaders who have called for a move away from dependance on the currency. Iran and Iraq are the latest in a growing list of nations to distance themselves from the dollar, instead opting to use the euro and their own local currencies for transactions. China and Japan, and China and Russia have also switched to using their own currencies when trading together. Most international trade is done in dollars and more than 60 percent of foreign currency reserves are in dollars. Despite this, world leaders have spoken out about the dangers posed by the dollar’s dominance. Learn More:

Trump Told Japan’s Abe He ‘Remembers Pearl Harbor,’ Washington Post Says. Didn’t Happen, Tokyo Says

  • Trump Told Japan’s Abe He ‘Remembers Pearl Harbor,’ Washington Post Says. Didn’t Happen, Tokyo Says
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Japan denies that US President Donald Trump launched a surprise attack against Prime Minister Shinzo Abe by bringing up Pearl Harbor during trade talks, contrary to a report by the Washington Post.

    The episode described by the Washington Post allegedly happened during a Trump-Abe meeting in June to discuss trade. Trump is not happy with the trade deficit and wants Tokyo to consent to a deal more favorable to the US.

    According to the newspaper, at one point during the meeting, the US president said: “I remember Pearl Harbor.” He then launched into a “blistering critique of Japan’s economic policies.” The piece is mostly based on the words of a number of anonymous sources in the US State Department, the White House, and the Japanese government. It details the personal relations between Trump and Abe, whether or not their personal chemistry mitigated the tensions over trade, and whether Japan would be less willing to turn a blind eye to American trade restrictions in the future.

    The juicy detail about the remark on the surprise Japanese attack during World War II understandably received a lot of attention in the US. Some Trump critics felt yet again justified in their opinion that the president is an incompetent diplomat, or worse.

    The accuracy of the account about the Pearl Harbor tirade is, however, questionable. A spokesman for the Japanese government on Wednesday said Trump didn’t say it. “There is no truth” to it, Yoshihide Suga told the media, as cited by Kyodo News.

Russia is Aware of US & Western Military Plans – Russian FM

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+6%3A2&version=NKJV

  • Russia is Aware of US & Western Military Plans – Russian FM
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Moscow knows what military actions Washington and its Western allies might be plotting against it, but the country is well protected, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

    “Our awareness of what plans the US and other Western countries’ militaries are nursing in relation to the Russian Federation is guaranteed,”
     Lavrov told the participants of the Russian youth educational forum “Territory of Meanings”, held some 200km from Moscow in Vladimir Region.


    The US has been actively deploying its air-defense systems around the globe, including on Russia’s doorstep, in the Baltic states, and Japan. But the top diplomat said the country shouldn’t worry “no matter what happens in the world,” as its security is ensured. He was citing Russian President Vladimir Putin and new developments in the Russian Army.

    Tokyo is planning to spend some $4.2 billion over the next 30 years to install and operate US radar systems on the new ground-based Aegis Ashore missile defense system.

    Despite Japanese claims the systems are aimed at protection against North Korean missile threats, Russia has repeatedly protested their deployment, calling it “disproportionate” and possibly undermining“strategic stability in the northern part of the Pacific.” In 2017, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said that the systems’ appearance on Russia’s eastern borders is “something we certainly cannot fail to take into account in our military planning.”

    Lavrov also addressed Washington’s seeming unwillingness to cooperate with the rest of the world in space exploration. They are apparently benefiting from the absence of laws there, while also unwilling to set them. While Europe and developing countries are ready to discuss the draft treaty to ban space weapons which was initiated by Russia and China, the US is the only country rejecting the proposal.

    The US has already started looking at space militarization. In June, US President Donald Trump ordered the establishment of a Space Force as the sixth branch of the US military, saying that “American dominance in space” should begin. Last week, the US House of Representatives approved the $716 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for next year which, among other provisions, requires the Pentagon to develop a “space warfighting policy” by the end of March 2019.

Japan: Survival of International Trading System at Risk — Over 40 Countries Object at WTO to U.S. Car Tariff Plan, Fearing Collapse of Rules-Based Trading System

  • Trump is definitely wrecking the New World Order system. It also means that America is becoming a rogue state. The Illuminati definitely cannot build a Luciferian World Government for their Man of Sin with the policies of the Trump administration.
  • Over 40 Countries Object at WTO to U.S. Car Tariff Plan, Fearing Collapse of Rules-Based Trading System
    by REUTERS, https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/
    GENEVA – Major U.S. trading partners including the European Union, China and Japan voiced deep concern at the World Trade Organization on Tuesday about possible U.S. measures imposing additional duties on imported autos and parts.

    Japan, which along with Russia had initiated the discussion at the WTO Council for Trade in Goods, warned that such measures could trigger a spiral of countermeasures and result in the collapse of the rules-based multilateral trading system, an official who attended the meeting said.

    Over 40 WTO members, including the 28 countries of the European Union — warned that the U.S. action could seriously disrupt the world market and threaten the WTO system, given the importance of cars to world trade.

    The United States has imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from many of its key allies and is conducting another national security study that could lead to tariffs on imports of cars and car parts. Both sets of tariffs would be based on concerns about U.S. national security. U.S. President Donald Trump said June 29 that the probe would be completed in three to four weeks.

    But the European Union has warned the United States that imposing import tariffs on cars and car parts would harm its own automotive industry and likely lead to countermeasures by its trading partners on $294 billion of U.S. exports.

It’s Time to Reform Global Trade Rules, Says France’s Macron

  • It’s Time to Reform Global Trade Rules, Says France’s Macron
    by Reuters, via https://www.nytimes.com/
    PARIS — French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday said it was time for the world’s biggest economic powers to start talks on reshaping World Trade Organization rules to prevent current tensions spiralling into trade wars.

    Macron’s comments before the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) came as the European Union faced less than 48 hours to win an exemption from U.S. tariffs on European aluminium and steel.

    “This is about a complete update of global competition rules,” Macron said, advocating multilateralism at a time when the risk of tit-for-tat trade measures threatens to derail global growth.

    The French leader wants the EU, United States, China and Japan to draw up a blueprint for WTO reform in time for the next G-20 meeting in Argentina at the end of the year.

    “The new rules must meet the current challenges of world trade: massive state subsidies creating distortions of global markets, intellectual property, social rights and climate protection,” Macron added. Macron said, however, that Europe should show no weakness in the face of unilateral action. “All sides always lose in a trade war,” he said.

“They Killed The Market” – Not A Single Japanese Bond Traded On Tuesday

Kuroda: “I now own Japan with money created out of thin air!”

  • “They Killed The Market” – Not A Single Japanese Bond Traded On Tuesday
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Bank of Japan Governor Kuroda appeared to somewhat proudly proclaim last night during his address to government that the BoJ has bought 75% of JGBs issued in fiscal-year 2017 so far! (and yet we are reassured that this is not debt monetization… not all).

    “Yields in Japan are stable” Kuroda added… One glimpse at the chart below and its clear how ‘stable’ the Japanese bond market has become – reminding us somewhat of Monty Python’s Dead Parrot sketch. As one veteran bond trader exclaimed, “they killed the biggest bond market in the world.”

    This is “the result of YCC [Yield Curve Control] policy” he bragged, before admitting that it “would be hard to continue YCC if trust in debt was lost,”but Kuroda reminded his audience that “because BoJ has seigniorage, trust in yen won’t be lost.”

    But is that trust starting to fade?
    As Bloomberg notes, The Bank of Japan has vacuumed up so much of the government bond market — in excess of 40% — that it’s left fewer securities for others to buy and sell. Some other buyers, such as pension funds and life insurers, also tend to follow buy-and-hold strategies.

Michael Pento: Rising Rates Forecast Insolvency, Profound Chaos Coming

  • Michael Pento: Rising Rates Forecast Insolvency, Profound Chaos Coming
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 
    Money manager Michael Pento says recently rising interest rates are signaling big trouble for the economy. Pento contends, “There are so many things that can go wrong with rising interest rates.  First of all, you have to understand that the permabulls that you hear on CNBC will tell you there is nothing wrong with rising interest rates.  It is a symbol of growth.  If you look at industrial production and retail sales for January, they were negative.  So, rising rates are occurring, not because of growth, they are caused by insolvency concerns.  That is the key metric here, and they are credit risks and insolvency concerns.”


    Who is insolvent? Pento says, “Europe is insolvent.  The United States is insolvent. . . . We have $21 trillion in debt.  That’s seven times our revenue.  So, we are technically insolvent.  You haven’t seen anything yet because as interest rates rise, debt service expenses rise. . . . Certainly, beyond a shadow of doubt, the Bank of Japan is insolvent.”

    Pento says 10-year Treasury rates could easily go to “7%,” which is a massive move from a little less than 3% today. This would not be some wild swing, but a “return to long term averages.”  What are central bankers going to do then?  Pento says, “I think the end game is central bankers are going to come back in and buy everything.  They are going to buy every fixed income sovereign debt instrument that they can find because interest rates are going to spiral out of control. . . . You are going to have a panic out of Treasuries, a panic out of high yield, a panic out of leveraged loans and a panic out of bond funds.”

    Pento also predicts, “For the first time in 40 years, you are going to have bond prices and equity prices in free-fall. That happened in the 1970’s, but it’s going to be worse because in the 1970’s, you didn’t have an insolvency concern. . . The chaos coming to markets is here.  It’s not going away, and it’s not going to be brushed under the rug.  It’s not going to stay on the sidelines for another few years.  The years from 2007 to 2017 were the years central banks were buying everything.  There was no volatility, and stocks just went up.  Those days have ended, and the volatility is only going to become much more profound.”

It’s Not China That Is Dumping US Treasurys, It’s Japan

  • It’s Not China That Is Dumping US Treasurys, It’s Japan
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Recent concerns about a liquidation by China of its US Treasury holdings appear to have been greatly exaggerated because according to the latest TIC data released at 4pm on Thursday, in December, China not only added $8.3 Billion to its holdings, bringing the total to $1184.9BN, or about $26 billion more than a year ago, but for the full year 2017, China added the most Treasury holdings going back seven years.

    But while China appears content with its US paper inventory, it was the second largest foreign US creditor, Japan, that has been liquidating in recent months, and in December, Japan sold $22.6 billion in TSYs, bringing its total to $1,061.5BN, the lowest total since the start of 2012.

A Central Banker Just Admitted On The Record: Currencies Are Worthless…

  • A Central Banker Just Admitted On The Record: Currencies Are Worthless…
    by Phoenix Capita…, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    If you want evidence of the Endgame for Central Bankers, you need to look no further than yesterday’s Bank of Japan (BoJ) announcement. In its simplest rendering, Haruhiko Kuroda, the head of the BoJ, stated that the Japanese Yen is effectively worthless to him.


    In his news conference, Kuroda reiterated that changes to the bond-buying operations don’t imply shifts to its policy stance, adding that the BOJ’s primary objective is the yield curve on Japanese government bonds, not the volume of its asset purchases. Kuroda also suggested the yen’s recent move may have resulted from broad dollar weakness, particularly against the euro.
    Source: Bloomberg

    Put another way, as far as the head of the BoJ is concerned… it doesn’t matter how much currency he prints: tens of billions of yen, hundreds of billions of yen, even trillions of yen… all that matters is where Japanese bond yields are trading.

    This is the literal textbook for Central Bankers around the world: devalue your currency in order to maintain the bond bubble. I outlined all of this in my best-selling book The Everything Bubble: the Endgame For Central Bank Policy... but I have to admit even I was stunned to see the head of a major Central Bank state this explicitly… and in public. But let’s be clear… shredding your currency will work for a while… but eventually doing this unleashes inflation.
