July 9, 2022
As you little doubt know by now, Shinzo Abe, the previous prime minister of Japan, was assassinated in broad daylight on Friday.
So what occurred? Who was accountable? And what does it imply?
Following are the outcomes of an open supply investigation carried out by The Corbett Report neighborhood to compile all of the recognized details about the incident and to place that data into its correct context.
On Friday, July 8, 2022, Shinzo Abe was in Nara, delivering a stump speech forward of Japan’s higher home election, which is because of happen on Sunday.
Abe’s speech was interrupted by two loud booms coming from the road behind the politician, accompanied by giant puffs of smoke. The alleged assailant was then wrestled to the bottom and brought away by safety.
Varied movies present the incident in complete or partly. The clearest view to emerge thus far exhibits Abe rapidly stepping off the stump and dropping to his knees because the second shot is fired and it additionally exhibits safety speeding to deal with the shooter about 5 to 10 metres behind him.
Abe was then transported by helicopter to Nara Medical College Hospital within the metropolis of Kashihara the place he was pronounced useless. The official post-mortem asserts that “the bullet went via Abe’s higher left arm and broken a blood vessel underneath his collarbone” and lists the official explanation for dying as “lack of blood.”
The assailant, 41-year-old Tetsuya Yamagami, didn’t try to flee. He was arrested and has been interrogated by police.
One other image:
The crude gun, we’re instructed, was seemingly assembled utilizing the weapons coaching that Yamagami obtained throughout his three yr stint in Japan’s Maritime Self-Protection Power (the Japanese Navy in all however identify).
Police have since raided what we’re instructed is Yamagami’s condo and have reportedly found a wide range of equally handmade weapons.
For instance, this:
THE BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT
Though Abe was an ex-prime minister—having stepped down in 2020 on account of well being points— he was nonetheless very a lot a power in Japanese politics, retaining his seat within the Japanese Weight loss program and, crucially, nonetheless wielding monumental affect within the Liberal Democratic Social gathering (LDP), the perennial ruling social gathering of Japan. He got here from a politically influential household—his maternal grandfather, Nobusuke Kishi, served as prime minister from 1957 to 1960 and was often called “the Monster of the Showa Period” for his brutal rule over Manchuria within the Thirties—which seemingly accounted for his first appointment as prime minister in 2006.
Abe’s first stint as PM didn’t go effectively: His cupboard was instantly suffering from finance scandals and through his time period the LDP misplaced its management of the higher home of the Japanese Weight loss program for the primary time in its 52-year political historical past. In consequence, he solely lasted one yr as PM earlier than resigning the place. However, in a testomony to his enduring energy behind the scenes within the bureaucratic Japanese authorities, Abe acquired a second shot on the nation’s prime job in 2012.
This time, he got here to energy with an formidable agenda: he wished to rework Japan’s “Self-Protection Power” into a correct navy by reforming the Japanese structure and abolishing its pacifist clause. He wished to drag the Japanese economic system out of its decades-long tailspin with a set of financial reforms that may be dubbed “Abenomics.” And he wished to reassert Japan geopolitically, buddying as much as Trump, warmongering with China and beginning a commerce struggle with South Korea within the course of.
Abe’s document speaks for itself. He didn’t pull Japan out of its financial tailspin. He lied concerning the security of Fukushima. He oversaw the passage of a draconian “Secrecy Invoice” that enables the federal government to suppress free speech and reporting within the nation. He performed together with the scamdemic. He was a World Financial Discussion board darling and pushed the UN Agenda 2030 Sustainable Enslavement agenda, from the carbon eugenics swindle to the ESG rip-off. He dreamed of a Klaus Schwab-like transhuman fourth industrial revolution nightmare, which he dubbed “Society 5.0.”
In different phrases, Abe was simply one other obedient globalist supergopher.
He definitely had his political enemies, after all, however his place within the globalist Huge Membership appeared assured. Why, then, would he be gotten rid of?
“A CERTAIN ORGANIZATION”
In line with experiences, Yamagami has instructed investigators he was not motivated by disagreement with Abe’s political views, however “rumors concerning the former chief’s connection to a sure group that police didn’t determine.” Different experiences assert that Yamagami blamed the group for having bankrupted herself by donating to the group.
Hypothesis concerning the id of this “sure group” is presently centered round The Unification Church. The Household Federation for World Peace and Unification—previously often called the Unification Church however maybe greatest often called the church that “The Moonies” belong to—was based by the Reverend Solar Myung Moon in 1954. Though recognized primarily within the West for its mass weddings (and its possession of The Washington Instances), its Japanese department has been recognized as a part of “the grassroots conservative motion in Japan.” Extra to the purpose, some have famous that “Abe’s grandfather had performed a serious position in establishing the early Unification Church in Japan,” and Abe himself reportedly despatched a congratulatory telegram to a “entrance group” for the church again in 2006, an act which generated some controversy on the time.
One other group that comes up in affiliation with Abe (and with the Unification Church) is Nippon Kaigi. Described because the “largest and strongest conservative right-wing group”, Nippon Kaigi (the “Japan Convention”) was established in 1997 on account of a mix of two earlier Japanese political teams. It pushes a want listing of Japanese nationalist agenda gadgets—the restoration of the Japanese Imperial household as head of state, the restoration of the Japanese navy, constitutional adjustments and schooling reforms—that solely the hard-of-thinking will miss out on coincide with Abe’s political agenda. That is no coincidence; Abe served as a “particular advisor” to the group’s parliamentary league.
After which there’s 悪の秘密結社 (Evil secret group). If that appears like a bizarre, made up factor from the fringier facet of the conspiracy principle world, that is as a result of it’s. Apparently the Japanese model of QAnon, 神真都Q (Yamato Q)—which was reportedly established in December of final yr with the specific purpose or “shield[ing] kids’s lives from COVID vaccination,” and which was liable for storming a vaccination website in April the place they demanded to be proven the elements of the vaccine—accommodates some members with some quite outlandish beliefs. According to an investigative report carried out by some Japanese ambush journalists, Yamato Q believes that “The Yamato individuals (Japanese) initially inherited the genes of fine aliens and dragon gods, however their powers are stored secret via the data management of the deep state (darkish energy) and Illuminati (secret society of evil).” Naturally, they consider it’s as much as members of the group to “awaken the sleeping DNA to awaken the true energy of the Yamato individuals.”
To be clear, essentially the most simple assertion concerning the “sure group” that has emerged thus far is a report that Yamagami “supposed to focus on a senior official of a spiritual group” who was, apparently, not on the scene on the time, that means Abe wasn’t even the first goal of the murderer. Then once more, the identical report additionally signifies that “the suspect has made nonsensical statements, and Nara Prefectural Police are fastidiously investigating whether or not he’s mentally competent to be held criminally accountable,” so take all of this data with a huge grain of salt.
In any occasion, the truth that police seem like purposefully withholding the identify of this group—ostensibly in an effort to keep away from a spiritual or racist backlash in opposition to the group and its members—will seemingly solely additional the beliefs of individuals like Yamagami who reportedly consider that the group in query controls the media and highly effective politicians like Abe.
THE BOTTOM LINE
There’s nonetheless a lot we have no idea concerning the incident:
- Who’s Yamagami? A patsy? A decoy? A lone gunman? A wingnut? An agent of a darkish agenda?
- Was Abe’s dying politically motivated, or was it—as experiences of Yamagami’s testimony now point out—religiously motivated? Neither of the above?
- Was there deep state complicity on this occasion or was it the work of a single particular person?
- What impact will this have on the course of Japanese politics? On home safety legal guidelines?
Though we’re unlikely to obtain plausible solutions to those questions from the police and the institution media any time quickly, the solutions to those questions will turn out to be clear within the coming days and weeks. As James Evan Pilato typically observes, the actual motion of probably world-changing occasions like this one is within the remotion.
Fortunately, the concept that this occasion shall be blamed on some international energy and used as a pretext for struggle appears unlikely at this level (though experiences point out that the Chinese language authorities has needed to step in to “tamp down” the cries of celebration from sure corners of Chinese language social media). However there are different agendas that this assassination might serve.
Media experiences about Yamagami’s do-it-yourself arsenal, for instance, may very well be performed as much as warn of the risks of lone nuts ordering components off the web and any variety of safety legal guidelines may very well be carried out on the again of this incident. The political reorganization that will happen within the LDP and the adjustments in Japanese authorities coverage that will outcome from that reorganization additionally stay open questions for now, however ones that, when answered, might present clues as to the true that means of this assassination.
Time will inform. Within the meantime, Corbett Report members are urged to proceed the open supply investigation as data continues to return out on the incident.
