Sea Shepherd exploits Typhoon Talas that devastated western Japan repost

Sea Shepherd exploits Typhoon Talas that devastated western Japan repost

Western Japan on 2 September was hit with Typhoon Talas, resulting in massive devastation, near 50 dead, and many missing.  Sea Shepherd’s Captain Kangaroo / Admiral Beauregard Watson / the Paulrus, wrote on his Sea Shepherd’s website this tragedy was basically the sea seeking justice upon Taiji, Japan for their dolphin activities.  Taiji in Higashimuro District, Wakayama prefecture.   

Link to She Shepherd’s hideous writing / website:

The Paulrus in his purposeful inflammatory diatribe writes that the “Cove Guardians’ (currently in Taiji) embody the spirit of the Kamikaze greater than the Japanese themselves.  It should be noted “kamikaze” is a Japanese word (神風) used to define a Japanese military unit, not for foreigners.  The Paulrus’s attempt to hijack this word is a continued bastardization of the dialog, a standard Paulrus failed tactic. 

Captain Kangaroo / Admiral Beauregard Watson / The Paulrus also gleefully wrote of the Japanese earthquake tsunami 11 March 2011 that is was Neptune’s revenge.  Tragedy hits Japan and the Paulrus exploits it to promote his wretched agenda.  The parents of these trust-fund babies who are part of Sea Shepherd’s cult should conduct an intervention to salvage what is salvageable with their miss-guided children.  The cult leaders concern is not their safety but the next event to exploit cultist around the globe for their money.    Note:  do not drink the Kool-Aid!

The earthquake tsunami hits northern Japan the She Shepherd’s Cove Guardians were there. Incidentally caution when approached by them: may have lice, fleas, tics, bed bugs, and yeast infections.  The Cove Guardians were also in Taiji when the typhoon hit.  Could it be Neptune and the angry seas are trying to cleanse Japan of this foreign vermin? 

The good Captain Kangaroo / Admiral Beauregard Watson / The Paulrus, has on numerous occasions boasted of what happened in Iceland in 1988.  He claims the Icelandic authorities accused him of sinking one of their whaling ships.  To show he had no fear of being wanted by Iceland, he flew to Iceland and surrendered himself to the Icelandic authorities.  After questioning by the authorities, they escorted him back to the airport ordering him to leave the nation.

Since the good Captain thought and claimed he was wanted in Iceland, yet flew there to challenge them, in that spirit how come he does not fly to Tokyo, Japan?   The Tokyo Metropolitan Police issued an arrest warrant the Paulrus based upon information squealed to them by Peter Bethune when he was a guest in jail in Tokyo.  Since Captain defied the Icelandic authorities, how come he does not defy the Tokyo authorities with the same bravado?

The good people of Japan should ignore, shun, and avoid Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians as the good people of the Faroe Islands recently did.  The Sea Shepherd cult sole objective is to exploit people for their money and others if a tragedy happens.

Congratulations to Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

Congratulations to Japan’s 
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan and the LDP – Liberal Democratic Party recently won a stunning election.  It was a clear signal approving his stated policies and his aim to make Japan strong.

Could it be Mr. Abe rode the coat tails of President Trump’s presidential victory?  Nice thought, but probably not a major factor in Abe’s election.  A realistic analysis would have factor in the lunatic Dear Leader Kim Jong-un north of the 38th parallel in the Hermit Kingdom – North Korea.

When that lunatic launched two missiles over Japan it shook the people in Japan into facing the reality of the 21st century.  East Asia is not the same security wise as it was fifty years ago.  Those missiles caused Japan to re-examine their seventy years old peace constitution.  Prime Minister Abe continued to support reviewing the constitution and reconstituting their military in the face of threats from North Korea and China. 

So to the lunatic in North Korea:  Thank you very much /  domo arigatou gozaimasu / ありがとうございます
