Sea Shepherd Faroe Islands Update
Sea Shepherd, the floating circus has arrived in the Faroe Islands to perform in free shows for the Faroese. Some of the clowns arrived in the Faroe Islands via ferry from Denmark. This allowed the clowns to bring their own vehicles. The performers were kind enough to place Sea Shepherd insignia on both sides of the vehicles making it easy for the descendants of the Vikings to easily identify the clown cars. This identification resulted in a few of the tires on the clown cars to go flat. Wonder how that happened?
It has been reported one clown was arrested. Also another report of a fist fight between a clown and a Faroe Island resident. Earlier in the week one of the clowns was interviewed by a reporter. The clown stated they were willing for forfeit their comical lives to save a whale. Really? Apparently that did not include a forfeiture of their sensitivity. One of the clowns got into an argument with a resident and got his/her feelings hurt. This caused the clown to call the police. Such brave people.
Some of the clowns who traveled to the Faroe Islands did so on a ferry. While on this ferry an eyewitness filed a report claiming the clowns were stealing food. Here is part of the eyewitness account of the food theft by the clowns from the Floating Circus:
“The Faroese travelers were shocked by their unashamed behavior. I witnessed, along with four other Faroese persons, four Sea Shepherd people sitting across from our table filling their bags with stolen food from the restaurant on the ferry this morning, Sunday morning.
Their method was to go up to the buffett many times filling their plates and at the same time taking many napkins, which they used to pack their food with, before stocking up their bags.
……….. darkhaired woman also steals some butter, while she is holding the bag between her legs with her right hand, and food packets after food packets go in this bag.
The redhaired woman ………. did not have a bag but used a hat that resembled a ski mask. She filled the ski mask with as much food as the ski mask could hold.
I spoke with other Faroese people who were also having breakfast this morning and they were shocked by what they saw by another team of Sea Shepherd people.”
Flea Face and Cabin Boy (Peter Helmethead) are also in the Faroe Islands. The residents of the islands state to Sea Shepherd, they are not the same as the people are in Taiji, Japan. With the star circus performers there, where is the ring master pope Paul the Watson?
He too once boasted he was willing to forfeit his freedom to save the life of one whale. Apparently that boast exclude going to a jail in Tokyo. His holiness will not be in the Faroe Islands for fear of that Interpol arrest warrant. With that fear, no Watson, just minions.

Japan: Worlds best soccer fans
The World Cup 2014 (2014 FIFA World Cup) in Brazil held a match between Costa Rica, and Japan. Plenty of fans from Japan traveled across the Pacific Ocean to attend the game cheering on their home team.
The Japanese team lost to Costa Rica, 2 – 1. What did the Japanese fans do in the stadium after the game? In many such instances violence has erupted. Not with the Japanese fans, the Japanese fans cleaned up the litter in the section of the stadium they were in and parts of adjacent areas.
That is the character of the Japanese people. Hoteliers throughout the world rate Japanese tourist as one of the best guest in their hotels. Why I Love Japan.

Blocked by the South Korean government
Try to access any of my videos on YouTube in South Korea and you will be unable to do so. The government of South Korea through their Korea Communications Standards Commission fear my expression of free speech in my videos and blocked me. The blockheads blocked me.
How unstable and insecure must a so-called free country be to fear a little guy in Texas? Article 21 of their Constitution guarantees free speech only for their citizens. It reads in part:
(1) All citizens shall enjoy freedom of speech and the press, and freedom of assembly and association.”
It seems South Korea is not the only nation to enjoy a façade of freedom, because recently the world’s largest democracy, India arrested seven people for their expression of free speech.
A blockhead was blocked by blockheads in South Korea. Now how silly is that? By blocking me they in essence elevated my status. Thank you to the government of South Korea for this elevated status. I feel as if I was awarded the Legion of Honor. Viva la South Korea!

Sea Shepherd Grindstop 2014 Thievery
Eyewitness account of Sea Shepherd thievery. This happened on a ferry from Denmark to the Faroe Islands. The Faroe Islands this summer will be enjoying free performances from Sea Shepherd’s circus clowns in a project called “Operation Grindstop 2014.” This is Sea Shepherds mission to stop whaling in the Faroe Islands.
The eyewitness account:
Headline "Sea Shepherd people with full bags of stolen food"
I arrived (in Faroe Islands) with Norrønu (ferry that sails between Iceland, Faroe Islands and Denmark) tonight. About 20 Sea Shepherd people also arrived.
The Faroese travelers were shocked by their unashamed behavior.
I witnessed, along with four other Faroese persons, four Sea Shepherd people sitting across from our table filling their bags with stolen food from the restaurant on the ferry this morning, Sunday morning.
Unfortunately, I was only able to take a picture of the thieves, which is attached (to the letter sent to the news site), where we see 3 Sea Shepherd people having breakfast next to our table. Their method was to go up to the buffet many times filling their plates and at the same time taking many napkins, which they used to pack their food with, before stocking up their bags.
In the photo we see some of the food packed in napkins, where the dark haired woman also steals some butter, while she is holding the bag between her legs with her right hand, and food packets after food packets go in this bag.
The red haired woman, who is seen partially, did not have a bag but used a hat that resembled a ski mask. She filled the ski mask with as much food as the ski mask could hold.
One chair in the photo is empty because the fourth thief had just left with his stolen food.
The man on photo who saw us taking the picture was the person with the largest bag. It was a very large back bag and he was pacing a lot to steal food and fill his bag. I followed him when he left with the bag stuffed with stolen food. I walked behind him and he went to his room where he delivered his bag and then he went to the 8th deck (open deck on top of the ferry). There he provoked some Faroese people at the bar. He did not succeed in provoking them and I stopped following him.
I spoke with other Faroese people who were also having breakfast this morning and they were shocked by what they saw by another team of Sea Shepherd people.
Furthermore, almost all Sea Shepherd people had the Faroese flag on their shirts - and tonight, before going ashore, they plastered banners with a skull on the Faroese flag.
I would like to know if journalists will ask them in any press conference if Sea Shepherd will continue their mission with stuffed bags of stolen food, and thereby preventing Faroese people getting food legally.

The “Kono Statement,”
valid, incomplete, or misguided?
The “Kono Statement” issued on 4 August 1993, by then Chief Cabinet Secretary Yohei Kono in reference to the Comfort Women issue has been interpreted as an official apology by the Japanese government. The Koreans are claiming it was not a “sincere apology.” Critics claim it was an apology issued falsely while ignoring the realities of the issue. I claim the “Kono Statement” is invalid because it seems to be based on information gathered to prove women were forced into becoming Comfort Women. As oppose to conducting an examination to determine if any of the claims were valid through balance research.
The impudence for the Kono Statement seems to have gained strength from research conducted by Professor Yoshiaki Yoshimi of Japanese modern history at Chuo University in Tokyo, Japan. Mr. Yoshimi went on a fishing expedition to uncover war crimes committed by the Imperial Japanese Army and Imperial Japanese Navy during and before World War Two.
While fishing at the Defense Agency Library of Tokyo he claims to have located documentary evidence the Imperial Japanese Army established and ran Comfort Women Stations. Mr. Yoshimi cites as evidence a notice written on 4 March 1938 by the adjutants to the Chiefs of Staff of the North China Army and Central China expeditionary Army titled “Concerning the Recruitment of Women for Military Comfort Stations.”
Shall we examine key sections of this document to uncover support for claims of impropriety by the Imperial Japanese Army? Certainly!
"Many agents should have required special attention. Some of them accentuated the name of the armies as much as they might hurt the credibility of the armies and cause misunderstanding among the public, others recruited women without control through war correspondents or entertainers, and others selected the wrong agents who took a kidnapping approach to recruit women so that the polices arrested them. In the future, the armies in the field should control recruiting and select the agencies circumspectly and properly, and should build up a closer connection with the local polices and the local military polices in the implementation of recruiting. Take special care not to have problems which have the potential to damage the armies' credibility or are not acceptable to social standards."
This is glowing statement acknowledging that in 1938 the Army recognized there was some miss-deeds in the recruitment of these women AND took steps to correct them.
On page 8 of the document the following was written:
“There have been a lot of cases as above reported,
therefore, from now on, the dispatch force will carry out screening for the brokers carefully and adequately and will corporate with the police and kenpei in regulating the recruitment so that it won’t cause the social problem and it won’t damage the prestige of the military”
The Army identifying a wrong-doing and taking steps to correct it. The document was exploited to prove there were forced Comfort Women, however portions illustrating some were identified and measures were implemented in 1938 to eliminate the abuses.
The Kono Statements acknowledges military involvement in the Comfort Women Stations and mentions:
“The Government study has revealed that in many cases they were recruited against their own will, through coaxing coercion, etc., and that, at times, administrative/military personnel directly took part in the recruitments. They lived in misery at comfort stations under a coercive atmosphere.”
This part of the Kono Statement is questionable. It did not mention the problem was identified in 1938 corrected and involvement of “many” taxes reality. Another failure when mentioned “military personnel directly took part,” ignored the fact the military involvement was to stop the abuses.
As for “They lived in misery at comfort stations under a coercive atmosphere,” seems to have been written without reference to a report on this issue written by the United States Army in 1944 titled, “Japanese Prisoner of War Interrogation Report No. 49.”
Notice the “…Prisoner of War…” in the titled. It was an interrogation report of Comfort Women captured by the U.S. Army as prisoners of war, not as people who were rescued. The report notes their living conditions:
“They lived in near-luxury in Burma in comparison to other places. This was especially true of their second year in Burma. They lived well because their food and material was not heavily rationed and they had plenty of money with which to purchase desired articles. They were able to buy cloth, shoes, cigarettes, and cosmetics to supplement the many gifts given to them by soldiers who had received ‘comfort bags’ from home.”
Did that read as if “They lived in misery at comfort stations under a coercive atmosphere,” as claimed in the Kono Statement?
Another bases for the Kono Statement was the interviewing of around sixteen Korean women who claimed to have been forced into being Comfort Women. Okay now where is the report where around sixteen former men of the Imperial Japanese Army were interviewed who paid for services at these Comfort Women Stations? That part of the investigation either never took place or got lost in history. The investigation into the issue prior to the release of the Kono Statement seems to have been aimed to gather incriminating so-call evidence to warrant an apologetic statement. There seems to be an absence of any investigation into areas that may have or would have proven claims as invalid or an exaggeration.
The Kono Statement seems to have been issued more as a political statement than an historical statement. Many lunatic, Japan-bashing Koreans claim the Kono Statement did not represent a “sincere apology.” Really? Here is part of the Kono Statement:
“The Government of Japan would like to take this opportunity once again to extend its sincere apologies and remorse to all those, irrespective of place of origin, who suffered immeasurable pain and incurable physical and psychological wounds as comfort women.
It is incumbent upon us, the Government of Japan, to continue to consider seriously, while listening to the views of learned circles, how best we can express this sentiment.
We shall face squarely the historical facts as described above instead of evading them, and take them to heart as lessons of history.
We hereby reiterated our firm determination never to repeat the same mistake by forever engraving such issues in our memories through the study and teaching of history.”
What could be more “sincere” than that? It was a sincere apology based on partial historical facts, while ignoring other facts, and rooted in a political exercise resulting in a failed diplomatic effort.
