"JIM'S PICKS" from KK WORLD WITHOUT BORDERS "GROUP OF EIGHT (attendees)" @ yesterday's GALA APA BOOK PUBLISHING and BIRTHDAY PARTY for APA president Toshio Motoya! (names of non-Facebook friends are not listed!)! Including the Mercedes that took us back to CENTER EARTH SHIBAURA!
     

 


TRUMP HONORS PLEDGE TO SUPPORTERS: GOOD BY PARIS ACCORD:Quick Compliance by Trump with Pledge to American Voters.....Deft Diplomatic Opportunity for China.....as China will stay in...Look for China to cozy up to Germany and France.....and the EU!!!

VIDEO OF THE DAY! My Take!! Japan can find more workers ...it cannot let them in because it refuses to globalize and liberalize its regulations!! The Galapagos Effect!! Japan is cutting its nose to spite its face. The question is no longer whether Singapore is ahead,,, or Taiwan is ahead,,, or China is ahead....of Japan!! The question is whether India, Philippines,Vietnam and Myanmar have pulled ahead... in the critical fields of health, nursing care, IT, etc. Of course, no one can force Japan to change... Nor can anyone force Japan to compete!!

NEWS OP ED OF THE DAY BY BLOOMBERG: If the other 11 Nations close the TPP Deal, The USA will have to come in!!! I predict the USA WILL COME IN!....if they close the Deal!!

BRIGHT SKY IN NORTH KOREA!! Up Bright and Early for a Sojourn to a Seminar. Before the Morning Paper......this video caught my eye...
On the Speaking Circuit on USA/Japan relations, in the last 5 weeks, North Korea has been the major issue...and still is...

 


CLINTON SUPPORTERS LIVING .....AND DYING...BY THE SWORD: A WIN FOR SANDERS IN DEMOCRATS v. DEMOCRATS LAWSUIT #1. ONE Down....One to Go...This one is next: LAWSUIT #2: SANDERS SUPPORTERS V. CLINTON SUPPORTERS: ACCUSING the Democratic National Committee of fraud, deceptive conduct and negligent misrepresentation over its alleged favoring of Clinton over Sanders is ongoing. Good Luck Bernie.....Make it #2 for #2!!



live video of fireworks at Shibara Square Heights -first of the season!
  

Feeling impatient that my last live video was terminated without any good reason except for the fact I have an iPhone 7 that isn't working and Apple refuses to replace it with a new one ! 
Anyhow I just completed a really great workout at Minato SportsCenter!

On the way to Minato SportsCenter!



Sure is great to have Facebook fanning out all these Anniversary Reminders! Here I am one year ago....at Texas Night...at Little Texas with The Yellow Rose of Texas (Tokyo Style).

WHAT? TRUMP FIRING WHITE HOUSE LEAKERS? Not a surprise.......only surprised it isn't happening faster!! A bigger issue is whether there is any conflict of interest in the acceptance of Special Counsel by Mueller...who is one of fired FBI Director's Jim Comey's best friends, it is said. If this is true....and/or if this is not all.....expect to see the Trump Administration raising issues of conflict of interest. That was my gut instinct last week....... ("The Investigation should be investigated") when I first read about Mueller!! Firing leakers does not make Trump .......a Wannabe King...it makes him a President...which is the problem some Democrats near and far still have!! So, let THE HEADS ROLL!! Let us hope, that if every leaker is fired....that there will be anyone left..in the White House to "help" President Trump!





CHANGE OF SCHEDULE: FANTASTIC FEEDBACK
I calendared a free weight and treadmill workout at Japan's Newest and Largets Sports Center for late morning....But the mailman (and phone) brought some photos and feedback from April 20th Trends in USA/JAPAN Relations Presentation in front of 1round 119 people (see photos). Organizers feedback was glowing....(excellent)-concerning quality, , and turnout, and audience commentary!! It reconfirmed what I received.from audience in the know...that night, and since the speech!! Next time I speak, this.....audience Q/A Commentary Focus may not be so heavy on North Korea. But one thing is for sure....The show must go on!!
   

A Final One-Year Anniversary Posting from Facebook.....just about 10 minutes after Masako's "Like' on one of Todays!!

Wow!! I just learned my Business Partner posted this on her Timeline...on Public!! The result of a Saturday Night Surprise by some neighbors while previewing the movie "Mamma Mia!!" Guess the music stuck!

SAVE BREAKFAST AND SLAY "THE SUGAR DRAGON"!! I like this Washington Post!! (The Post should be as correct on U.S. Politics) Bacon and Eggs and Greek Yogurt are the best breakfasts!! And sugar....in all forms....is the "Bad Guy"!!! Let's Feast on Eggs and GreekYogurt...(and (my suggestion) "UnAmerican Wholegrain Wheat Cereals like Weetabix (Holding the British End Up)!! Let's Save Breakfast and Slay"The Sugar Dragon"!!!

 

Friday saw the Senate Confirmation Hearing for Trump Nominee William Hagerty. A quick confirmation of Hagerty is more likely than not!

Negotiation at Nissin successful!

Sunday Sojourn Begins - Beautiful Day!


Here is what I was writing about in my post of 5 minutes ago!! But this seems to be a 2015 Video suggesting strongly that the United States, China, and Russia were discussing...in 2015- at least-if not now----a scheme to divide North Korea (which is already 1/2 of a Divided Korea) into four parts (one North Korean, one Chinese, one Russian, and one American). Truth or Fantasy? I do not know.

NEWT GINGRICH and KENNY ROGERS (see hit song "Coward of the County"HAVE A MESSAGE....."SOMETIMES YOU'VE GOT TO FIGHT.....". You can read Gingrich and see his video on You Tube. Partial Lyrics from Kenny Rogers "Coward of the County are below": Not exactly a Sunday Morning Message that you will find in Church....maybe...
"Sometimes you gotta fight when you're a man"


I never thought I would post Korean. My level of Korean is "Nursery School" But this seems to be a 2015 Video suggesting strongly that the United States, China, and Russia were discussing...in 2015- at least-if not now----a scheme to divide North Korea (which is already 1/2 of a Divided Korea) into four parts (one North Korean, one Chinese, one Russian, and one American). Truth or Fantasy? I do not know. 
However, this beats talking about the Liberal Media Fantasies about President Donald Trump. By the way, Republican Leader Newt Gingrich had an interesting message to Republicans yesterday....no choice but FIGHT!!


 

Libra is ME!! I am LIBRA!! More than the Scales of Justice!! Much more!

 


You know.....I am concluding....bit by bit....that Facebook is Really Smart!

Birthday party time for Yuki Sato, 
President of Barliminal!

     

昨晩は、とても楽しいOB会と言われる会に出席しました。私が独立後、トレーニングを受け持たせていただいた会社です。向かいの席には、お二人の元重役が座られていました。その一人がこう質問されました。「アメリカ大統領は、ワシントンDCでの新しい調査に生き抜く事が出来るでしょうか」私は、「分かりませんせんけれど、そう願いますね」と答えました。「どうしてですか?」私は、故エドワードベネットウィリアムス(ワシントンDCの弁護士)の言葉を引用して答えました。
ワシントンでは、毎週のように魔女狩りのような事が行われている。私は、トランプ大統領への新たな調査をすすめるべきだと思うと答えました。
なぜなら、ロシアとの関与に関して何も証拠がないのですから、そして新たな役についた人は、解雇されたFBI長官とも非常に仲の良い友人でもあるからです。
頑張れ、アメリカ大統領!
Yesterday, I had an interesting time at an OB Party. talking to retired executives…from the first company I ever received a check for training from…in Tokyo…as an entrepreneur. Sitting across from me, two men, one the Manager who authorized (OK’d) payment , and next, the Former HR Manager, asked me….Will the President of the USA survive the new investigation in Washington D.C/ ..I answered; !” do not know…I hope so”. ……He asked me: “Why”?? In response, I quoted a Edward Bennett Williams , now deceased, but the premier Washington Lawyer in his day: 
“Washington is like Salem-a new Witch is Created and Burned each week.” (Salem, Massachusetts was the historical site of the burning of many persons wrongfully claimed to be “witches” (see photos below). 
I continued “I think that the new investigation (of Trump) should be investigated…….They asked “WHY? I explained: 
(There is) No evidence of Trump’s collaboration with Russia….2. the new Chief Counsel is a very good friend of the fired FBI Director!”. 
Tough road ahead for the USA…..Stay tough Mr. President…….!”
   



A Yellow Rose from Texas who is my Facebook Friend drew Yellow on this test!! Wonder if she is surprised at her result.....or at mine?

JIM's PICK and JIM's VIDEO COMMENT!! NEWS FOR YOU: May 17, 2017! "ABE PRODS BEIJING TO RESTRAIN PYONGYANG"!!

A Post from KK World Without Borders Immersion Trainee Yusuke (Johnny Hunter Angelo) Sato: With a Group Photo that was omitted by accident during an Awfully Busy April!! 私の会社でお世話になっている(お世話になっている方ばかり(笑))「メンター兼 英語トレーナーの James Nicholas Papatones CEO(株式会社ワールドウィズアウトボーダーズCEO兼ルーマニア大使館 顧問)」と「アパホテルグループ創始者の元谷代表」の対談が行われました。
私自身も昨年から英語で政治と経済を勉強しはじめたので、今後の日米に関する外交や世界経済の動向など、英語でディスカッションできる場を提供していこうと思ってますので、興味ある方は是非一緒に勉強していきましょう。
私個人的にはここにテクノロジーが絡み、そのテクノロジーが起こすグローバル経済の変化についてもキャッチアップしていきます。
Received Excellent Feedback from Staff in Attendance passed down Toshio Motoya…resulting resulted in a Second Invitation to a Wine Tasting Party in just a little less than 2 months….Never happened before…A Record!!

 



Looked like the USS Carl Vinson (see photo below) wasbeing joined soon by the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan from Yokosuka as well as another Carrier Task Force from Washington State!! As well as some curious Russian and Chinese Intelligence ships and subs tailing closely behind!! Trouble is the latest news today April 20 is that it was off the coast of in Indonesia! I anticipate I’ll be getting a question or two about this in my speech later today concerning the Trump Administration and US-Japan relations!


Easter Barbecue a huge success…..one down and one to go…for this week……Now it is on to Tsurumi and Let’s Win There!! Just a Few Focuses….. Political Parties Divided….to International Showdowns in Syria and North Korea… to “I am Woman Hear Me Roar” Women’s Issues…… converging on the Trump/Pence Administration…….Hear it ALL at the Evening Seminar in Tsurumi!! April 20th…630 PM…Networking Nijikai to follow!!


GOLDFINGER’S TAKE: Gold protects against inflation!! Holding gold poses the least likelihood of capital loss! This is true….And yes…one ounce of gold would purchase a good-quality man’s suit at the conclusion of the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the presidency of Franklin Roosevelt, and today. But to me……this shortest adage of all says it best!! Gold is freedom!!


おはようございます:Trump vs. Putin? In Syria? The regions of the chessboard are converging….coming together…and Japan will be tested again…and again!!


おはようございます: MY TAKE: Japan should worry more about lowering its “cultural” discriminatory barriers in the cross border competition for labor. Japan is wasting precious energy trying to undo President Trump’s initiatives on currency manipulation. The Japanese Government is fighting the wrong war at the wrong time for the wrong reasons. Japan needs to embrace foreign labor to meet the needs of a shrinking population and economy… not try to protect its currency against President Trump’s tweets! (see post below for more info). Japan should stop trying to trump Trump on currency….instead focus on winning a battle it is losing in Asia …The Cross Border Competition for Labor. …in Health , in Nursing Care, in Cross Border Management, in Finance, and in many other areas!

 


おはようございます: This latest First of a Kind Japanese Government explains why my “Trump Nihongo” is working well here. Professional Japanese Language Ability IS NOT the key to success in Japan!! 95% of those being denied jobs or employment know Japanese on a professional level!! Over 20 years ago Japanese Company Presidents told me “You have Unique Skills!! Get Top of the Line Translators, and do not worry about the rest”. You will do fine!! I did!! And I am……


Talking things over lunch!


GOOD MORNING!! LAST NIGHT’S WINNER: OVER 100 PERSONS IN ATTENDANCE: at 1.75 HR. RHJ EVENING SEMINAR YOKOHAMA!! (Went into Overtime!!) “HOW TRUMP WON…WHAT TRUMP MEANS FOR JAPAN!!” GREAT CHINESE DINNER FOLLOWED!! 10 GB of VIDEO BEING PROCESSED!! MORE LATER!!

Morning Networking from 9 AM to 11 AM here. Some want to meet…..if you can come to Gajoen….so do…But let me know first….


7-days to the Presentation! Trumps first 100 days are different than expected – in key ways! Will I praise?


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: POWER HARASSMENT IS THE TRENDING HOT TOPIC IN BUSINESS. ..AND EVEN PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS….BOTH IN THE USA (under cover of legal REGULATION) and in JAPAN (Not only REGULATION, CULTURE (The stronger has a right) AND IF FOREIGNERS ARE TARGET “JAPANESE FEELING” …..One Harvard Professor 20 or so years ago was so right)!) When targeted.. AMERICANS tend to fight! JAPANESE usually say “So Des Ne”…..It can’t be avoided! BUT LAST NIGHT WITH All of this Power Harassment-WE HAD A GREAT VIDEO NEWS EVENING SEMINAR….. on Delta Airlines and more!


Celebrating that I made the supremely right choice when there was “a whole lot wrong in the picture”! Last night was a whole lot of celebration and the best will be on Sunday! (When I originally posted I didn’t know just how right I was)! Second party celebration was a great private club just down the street! The third celebration is coming up this Sunday! The going will be great!! https://m.facebook.com/wwbjapan/posts/637816733070897

Received Excellent Feedback from Staff in Attendance passed down from Mr. Motoya. That resulted in a Second Invitation to a Wine Tasting Party in just a little less than 2 months….I am told that this is a record. https://www.facebook.com/wwbjapan/posts/642630929256144


The peak day for “cherry blossoms”or Hanami! Great shots in perhaps the Number #1 location in Minato-Ku! Concluding with a majestic memorial attesting to foreigners’ early contributions to Japan’s modernization!

ANOTHER FACEBOOK ANNIVERSARY POSTING REMEMBERED: https://www.facebook.com/wwbjapan/posts/475800929272479

On April 20th I deliver another presentation to a large Japanese Audience on The 2016 USA Presidential Race. Facebook’s Anniverwary Posting was at a “turning point” in the Republican Presidential Race. It also includes some points I may on April 20th:
“昨日のFacebook投稿、ブルーンバーグビジネスの質問から引用します:
In my Facebook Post yesterday, I quoted Bloomberg Business’s question:
ルビオの政治資金提供者はトランプから世界を救う事ができるでしょうか?
私の答えは、明らかにノーです。
“Can Rubio’s Money Man save the world from Trump”? I answered “unequivocally NO!”- 
昨日Facebookに投稿後5時間経ってルビオはフロリダでトランプの手によって共和党のレースから降りました。
Five hours after my Facebook Post, Rubio withdrew from the Republican Race! .
そこでMSNBCは、他の質問を投げかけています:
Now, MSNBC asks another question: 
ルビオが降りたことにより、彼のサポーターはクルーズに行くと思いますか、或いはトランプに行くと思いますか?
With Rubio out, where do his supporters go-will Rubio’s loss be Cruz’s gain, or will Trump gain? 
MSNBCの世論調査によるとルビオのサポーターの5分の3はクルーズに行くと出ています。
MSNBC’s polls say about 3 in 5 (Rubio supporters) will go to Cruz. 
もしもそんな事になれば、共和党のレースをリセットする事になるでしょう。
I say that if this happens, this may reset the Republican Race. 
ケイシックは、大統領へのパスではありません!
Kasick has no path to the Presidency! 
ケイシックは、オハイオ州の有権者に感謝しました。しかし、彼の勝利は伝統を捨て、中立性の原則を放棄したオハイオ州の共和党からのものでした。
Kasick thanked Ohio’s voters. But his victory was from the Republican Party of Ohio that trashed tradition and abandoned the rule of neutrality!!
ケイシックは共和党集会に行きたい(大統領候補にノミネートされるため)が、彼はその場合、共和党のためかヒラリークリントンの下で、現実的には副大統領候補でしょう。
Kasick wants to go to the Convention but he is realistically a Vice Presidential Candidate, if that, for the Republicans or under Hillary Clinton! 
今や共和党のレースは、明らかにトランプ対クルーズです。
The Republican Race is now clearly Trump v. Cruz!! 
トランプは、各地に確信的な有権者がいます。有権者に対して彼のすべての富とビジネス実績から仕事を生むと説得しているからです。
Trump has convinced voters all over the country that his wealth and business record spell JOBS for them. 
彼はまた、個人的に高校のいじめっ子のように、事実上彼の相手を鬼ごっこの鬼にしましたが、それでも有権者によって支持されました。
He has also personally tagged his opponents virtually like a high school bully but been rewarded by the voters. 
トランプは今団結を要求している、彼は共和党いじめを継続する余裕がないことを知っています。
Trump is now calling for unity and he knows that he cannot afford to continue to bully Republicans!! 
クルーズ、彼の強みは他を叩かない、叩かれても容認しないところです。
Cruz, to his credit, has been neither a bully nor has he tolerated being bullied! 
しかし、クルーズはアメリカの経済病を治すことができるように思えません。
But until recently, Cruz has not seemed to be passionate and capable of curing the American People’s economic ills!! 
果たしてクルーズは、彼が繁栄を提供するために情熱を持って保守的であることを植え続けることができるでしょうか?
Can Cruz continue to communicate that he is a Conservative with a passion to deliver prosperity? 
クルーズは、元大統領ロナルド・レーガンと関係付け、小規模ビジネスのための税およびより多くのインセンティブ-細かい規制撤廃と縮小した政府が繁栄をもたらすとしている。
Can Cruz relate as Former President Ronald Reagan did-the message that less regulation and less government -fewer taxes and more incentives for small business will deliver prosperity? 
クルーズは、ルビオのサポートと、それを強化することで生かすことができるでしょうか?
Can Cruz capitalize on that Rubio support and even enhance it? 
トランプは、彼がフォックスの次の議論にクルーズと議論することを恐れないとしています。
Can Trump prove he is not afraid to debate Cruz in the next debate on Fox? 
これらの質問は、今後数カ月のうちの共和党のレースと6月開催のクリーブランド集会を決定するでしょう。
These questions will decide the coming Republican race in the coming months and the June Convention in Cleveland!”


THE ART OF “THE DEAL”: Hiroko Kanazawa of KK World Without Borders Japan-closing the deal on recruitment of new members of Business Network International. Well done Hiroko!!


Yesterday morning at the Grand Central!


Two Messages to My Japanese Real Estate Investor Friends: (1) Read this simple straightforward gem (2) Buy American!!


TODAYS GEM FROM JIM: “Say NO Like A PRO!! THE CLIENT IS NOT ALWAYS KING!” Due diligence occasionally requires politely declining a new client. At other times, due diligence requires terminating an existing relationship. If a client lacks focus, responsibility , consistency, cooperation, or common sense…protect the “downside”!! The “upside” will take care of itself!!!


Unexpectedly met a good friend at the Greek Exhibit at Foodex-graciously offered to donate several bottles premier Greek Red Wine to our great Event (Greek Independence Day Party and Hanami Viewing) on the 25th -The final photo is of a New Friend…..an exhibitor of fine food….who hails from the place that the Mediterranean Diet began. Can you guess that place?

Great Groundbreaking Ceremony for a new business in Japan! 8 new Hotels in the Asakura area!! Superb seating with the gentlemen who made it happen, including APA President Toshio Motoya. (Seated on my right)! I want to see this happen once again in the USA! For now, the next one is on March 16th, again in Central Tokyo!


Celebrating International Women’s Day The Right way – Yesterday!!

 

 


APAグループ代表の元谷外志雄氏と2時間 にも及ぶ”Big Talk”でした。
でも、私には5分にしか感じられない位のあっという間のに過ぎた時間でした。
写真入りでAPAから発行される本が待ちきれません。
通訳をして下さった酒生文弥さんには、心からのお礼を申し上げます。

My “Big Talk” with Mr. Motoya, President of the APA Group, at Headquarters APA, was a two hour gig that went by in 5 minutes…seemingly. Cannot wait to see the English and Japanes transcript and the numerous photos that will shortly appear in the APA Publication.. Thanks to Fumiya Sakow for translation.


ASAKATSU REAGAN TRUMP TRADE VIDEO

 


“THE RIGHT STUFF” by one of CNN’s Traditionally fiercest Critics of Republicanism. Van Jones has been perhaps the most intellectual daunting Trump denigrator ….until this posting. In the midst of this non-stop Democrat Kabuki Shout (or should I say Tantrum) in the Wind ….Jones is a breath of fresh air….and a Two-Term Trump seems just a tad more likely now than a Trump Victory was just one year ago….in spite of all the theatrics all around us!! A Two Term Trump….by Van Jones…..tempting to tout during my 2-hour talk (Big Talk) tomorrow! Stay tuned!!

 


As one who was there when Ronald Reagan was at the helm I can only say a resounding YES!! Well done, Bloomberg!!


Once again……THE BUSINESS OF AMERICA IS BUSINESS!!


 


Business Meeting for forward planning of Commercial ventures of Rumanian, Moldavian and collaborative KK WWB Events for Spring and beyond. In addition to those tagged are Moldavian Ambassador Vasile Bumacov, Moldavian Counselor Alexei Iatco, Financial Counselor Elena. 神楽坂のモルドバ大使館でローマニア(ルーマニアの正しい表記)モルドバ、ワールドウイズアウトボーダーズの今春いこうのコラボを話し合いました。ヴァシレブマコフ大使、アレクセイヤツコ公使、エレナ財務担当参事にタグしました。


THANKS FOR CONTRIBUTION TO A GREAT SEMINAR IN GOTANDA!! BNI English Skills Training: BNI Podcast 486: J. Nicholas Papatones introduces connection of “Brand” to the creation and promotion of “Featured Presentation”!


Shoheijuku summonsing the future! The guest speaker at that event (next to me in back row) introduced an IT APPLICATION that allows you to point and message a total stranger in a subway, in the train station, in a nightclub, or anywhere you choose! I think it may be “made for Japan”! Americans and Europeans, still prefer more personalized introductions! Furthermore I can imagine potential legal challenges to this if it were utilized in those other jurisdictions! I can imagine locals there viewing this as “being put upon”! But, my Japanese friends, please enjoy-subject to the minimal risk! If you buy this and use it instead of having the intestinal fortitude to speak directly to someone you want to meet…..Be careful of those “new wave women”……hold onto both Subway train safeties to avoid “offending”! (even when there are no ladies nearby)! Present but not pictured is Alain Wacziarg! Present but pictured on the opposite side of the second row is Fumiya Sakow! Seated in front is the Toshio Motoya, C.E.O.,APA HOTEL GROUP, and Chairman of the Shoheijuku!


BACK TO THE FUTURE! Taiko drums – Ginza! The gentleman performing on the drums is named Mishima! HIROKO KANAZAWA and I had known him as he was performing on behalf of the Estée Lauder corporation some years ago during it’s efforts on behalf of the breast-cancer Pink Ribbon campaign, led by my business partner HIROKO KANAZAWA then of the HR Division of the Estée Lauder companies, and supported by KK WORLD WITHOUT BORDERS!


 

In the past three weeks, a Global Trainee has reached a target……a threshold point in her business plan of action to achieve a lofty Professional Goal!! Even better, she arrived at this Threshold Point about 1/2 the time projected on her “fast track” training plan. These photos are from the last three weekly training sessions. Facebook made-yesterday”s training the largest!! She worked “hard” …..but more importantly she worked”smart”!! Yuri has “the right stuff”. She will achieve her global vision!! For now…Yuri….congrats!!!

 


ALL OF THE DAY AND ALL OF THE NIGHT!! May well be the best culinary based video projection system in all Tokyo!! And……in my own backyard!!


 


On March 25th we will be celebrating Greek Independence Day. However, we will also be focusing on the present plight of this Birthplace of Democracy. Has Greece learned the age old lessons of history? Will this latest crisis lead to Grexitt, now that Brexit is turning out to be a winner? Stay tuned!

 

 


FLORIDA SUNSHINE STRENGTHENING BRIDGES!!


Add a description Attending business meeting with Tadatsune Watanabe and Hiroko Kanazawa at Arossa Ginza (アロッサ銀座).


A FACEBOOK BLAST FROM THE PAST!! IMPORTANT FOR 3 REASONS: (1) “Jamaica Farewell”is a great song!! (2) Harry Belafonte is an unparalleled performer!! (3) Democrats bought the most expensive “Victory Farewell” in History by bypassing Belafonte’s bold, brazen advise in favor of “The Bern” (Bernie Sanders) in favor of Clinton’s Establishment Cronyism! Some of the same Democrats shouting in the streets today dealt President Donald Trump a his winning deal! One of Trump’s gems in business is “Protect the Downside and the Upside will take care of itself”. The Democrats saved Donald the bother. They self- destructed! By not listening to Harry Belafonte and millions of millennials! Turn off CNN and do not look down to the Streets. Instead enjoy “Jamaica Farewell”!!


(THE MORNING AFTER) ROPPONGI MIDTOWN DANCE PARTY, NIJIKAI, AND SANJIKAI! TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS: 
4 HOURS AFTER the THIRD PARTY ENDED KK World Without Borders Early Morning Web Update was followed by a 2 hour and 20 minute IHPT (In-House Private Training.)

ATTENTION AMERICA: Marco Rubio has it right! Civility is the linchpin of democracy! Democrats, demagogues, Republicans and ideologues have lost all vestiges of civility trying to out-demonstrate out-shout, out-gun, out-spend and outsmart each other! Without civility debate becomes impossible! AND without debate democracy dies!

ART OF APOLOGY – BY APPLE NEWS: MUST READING FOR AMERICANS AND JAPANESE ALIKE!!


GIVERS GAIN!! ” President Trump affirmed the “ironclad” U.S. commitment to ensuring Japan’s security, to Prime Minister Abe, the White House said.” So “priming the jobs pump” by more investment in the US is the least Japan can do! GIVERS GAIN!


HOLIDAY FOR WSJ: JAPAN TIMES HOLDING THE TOKYO END UP!! In October 2014 I predicted this potential result ….that Japan would be tweaked into a change of direction…..when I presented before the Hiroo Rotary!! Last year, predictably made the safe bets and the wrong bets (1) It bet its stakes on the then US Led TPP!! (2) it bet the US Presidential Sweepstakes would be won by the Former Clinton Dynasty. So…now…Japan is playing a game of Double Catch Up!!

THe Menger Hotel in San Antonio, Texas, is one of my favorites anywhere. I have stayed there many times and graced its glorious ambience with our Culture/Corporate Trainees from Tokyo. It has several historical areas with gems such as this famous saying of President Theodore Roosevelt. Theodore Roosevelt was one of the great thinkers of his time. He set new visions for the United States and ushered it into its role as a World Power. The Menger Hotel is overdue for a visit…..from here….soon!

 


Soon I will be posting an article by the Observer. The Title of that Article is “Clinton Shills Constantly Contradict Themselves over Trump Outrage.” The “Clinton Shills” are launching the outrageous personal attacks (some trying in vain to dignify personal attacks as policy positions by spinning quotes by Republicans like Teddy Roosevelt) on Trump! They need to take a lesson from Bernie Sanders—–If they wish the Democratic Party to prosper and the USA to become greater than ever before! This Article below is a great start for them.

 


ビジネス英語は、誰から学ぶかが重要です。この分野でトップクラスの講師から『人を動英語を学べます。講師が選んだ最新のニュースをCNN,BBC,TIME,Bloomberg等から抜粋

 


CNN: THE BEST OF THE UNBALANCED: BBC: HOLDING THE BRITISH END UP!! GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS!! The Good News is that this CNN EDITION BELOW is CNN’s BEST COVERAGE on the massive protests by Women’s Rights Groups in the USA-anti Trump!! The Bad News is that …..like certain select (but not all) Demonstrators…….CNN is running wild! CNN’s obsession with these demonstrations is degrading the focus issues that count most to Americans-and denying Americans their access to the news most important to them!! What is happening with HEALTH CARE !! What is happening with the TPP and Trade Agreements like NAFTA!! What is happening with JOBS!! It is no news that CNN has been massively Anti-Conservative, Anti-Populist and Anti-Trump…and Anti-Republican in their coverage political coverage from the earliest Pre-Presidential Primary Days. But now Donald J. Trump is President…And still, CNN is not giving Trump a fair chance!! Further, CNN is crushing their newest Commentator…the formerly outspoken author J. D. VANCE, (Hillbilly Elegy). On Sunday evening, Vance was muffled, mousey, and “walking on eggshells”!! BBC has Better Balance!! MY ACTION’. I have switched to BBC!! So should you!! SWITCH TO BBC for better balance on the New Trump Administration!

Bustling Brainstorming Morning Business Meeting at Romanian Embassy/ Romanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Japan! (RoCCIJa) on Friday Morning. Business was also on the mind of President Trump in his Inauguration Day Speech !! Congrats Romanian Embassy, and RoCCIJa! 2017 off to a Great Start!!


CONGRATS: President Donald J. Trump just delivered the most rousing populist inaugural speech I have ever heard or read. Ronald Reagan would be proud. Now…..Already the media is making one right take….it is the best speech of Trump’s life. In fact…his “Think Big and Dream Big”….is a page from “The Art of the Deal” that I spoke of just about one week ago in my presentation “Why Trump Won…What Trump Means”…..Also, the media is making several wrong takes…..that America is no longer as Ronald Reagan proclaimed….the ”Shining House On The Hill. Clearly The President feels that with the exception of Washington “not working” (he is right) that it is!!! Trump’s love for AMERICA resounds….Trump’s belief in America rouses! The media is also ignoring Trump’s announcement of “New Alliances”!! Trump is proclaiming America will lead by action and by example…but will force its will on no one. The media is also conveniently missing this~~ Now, Conservatives may be a bit disappointed, because this Inaugural was Populism primarily, with little Conservative Ideology…except for a repeated reference to God. I have often written that the most liberal Democrat philosophy and also the populist Republican converge, and it happened here…..Bernie Sanders and his followers might silently agree. One thing CNN got right: The Clinton Dynasty is done (kudos for Hillary and BIll for attending the inauguration and the luncheon that follows)!! Ronald Reagan would be proud!! Congratulations to President Donald J. Trump and to America!!

I went for a seminar of James Nicholas Papatones
The main theme was President turned into Donald Trump, and how Japan will be changed, but the contents were not only for politics but for business very much.
I want to hear the lecture of other themes by all means.
小西 由貴子was interpreter and was very wonderful, too.


Also good news for Japan for reasons I will elaborate on tomorrow!

NEWS OF THE DAY FROM THE USA!! DRAINING THE SWAMP: Congrats to Ted Cruz and Marci Rubio and the remaining Republican Senators who are not only “talking the talk” but “walking the walk” to “Drain the Swamp!!” The Pay For Play Universe that is Washington DC is a reality. This reality cannot be tackled without Term Limits. Mitch McConnell was wrong: Elections are not term limits. Elections are shoo ins for those incumbents that have accumulated the practical political capital to bully and to browbeat potential competitors. It also gives them an aura of invincibility which expands “The Swamp”!! Speaker Paul Ryan is possibly making a political calculus before he brings this measure forward. In Texas it is said “all hat but no cattle” It is time for Republicans, including Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and President Trump, (who campaigned in favor of term limits) to “Walk the Walk”!! Republicans by Example must never be “all hat…and no cattle”!!


SECOND WAVE ( LUCKY 7) FROM PRIVATE NEW YEAR’S PARTY OF LAST EVENING!!

 

 


FOR SELECTED CLINTON DEMOCRATS LOSING IS WINNING: The Democrats are giving new meaning to the old political adage: “To the Winners belong the spoils”!! I am Republican from a 2nd generation of Greek American Democrats. I am also an entrepreneur in Global Skills Consulting and Training who sponsored three Forums on the Dynamics of the 2016 Presidential Race. Finally I am an ex-Reagan Administration appointee to the White House Small Business initiative!! For all these reasons, I stood tough in predicting a Republican Victory over the over-confidence, arrogance and false wisdom of Clinton Democrats in key positions here who were so sure they would be in Washington now because the money was theirs and the system was set up for Hillary!! In this case the fun is just beginning….Yet these words from Frank Sinatra Song “My Way deserve a say: “Now I find it all so amusing” ‘Yes, I did it “MY WAY”!!

 


NEWS OF THE DAY FROM THE USA!! TRUMP SAYS “NO WAY” TO TOYOTA!! I will be commenting on this on the 13th in my presentation “HOW TRUMP WON!! WHAT TRUMP MEANS”! 
http://wwb-japan.com/january13thtrump
For now…..just say you read it here…..first!!!


VIDEO OF THE DAY FROM THE USA!! A NEW TREND IN CHINA!! A WAKE UP CALL FOR GALAPAGOS JAPAN………

 


A CENTURY IN COMING!A CATASTROPHE IN COST CONTROL!! A QUESTIONABLE LAUNCH FOR A CUOMO PRESIDENTIAL BID!! A PRIMER FOR ASPIRING NEW YORK CITY MAYORS AND FOR PRESIDENT ELECT TRUMP!

 


Is this England or is the American Democratic Establishment? Who is the teacher and who is the student?


COMEDY: GET ON WITH GLOBALIZING THE GALAPAGOS!! This Article cites such a serious problem in Japan!! But in one sense it is almost comical!! Why? I have a mountain bicycle I use to get almost everywhere. But once in a while I have to take a train or subway. .No need to cite a scientific survey to understand that Japan is sleep deprived. All you have to do count sleeping salaryman on the JR, City Subway, or Private Subway Lines! As I previously posted, this is the “Cost of Club Membership” – making Japan a Hell for Japanese Men, and a Paradise for Japanese Women- who have not gained entry into the “Club”. (Japan is also Paradise for Americans with the energy to use Mountain Bikes and the entrepreneurial zeal to engage Corporate Japan as it chooses!!) Sadly, for Japanese Women, and Japan, there is now the notable exception-the latest and most infamous Dentsu case! That one involved a female-suggesting strongly that Japan’s corporate elite had best change-fast!! The Dentsu President, Tadashi Ishii bowed deeply and resigned, just as his corporate karoshi and keiretsu chiefs have been doing for several decades!! ADVICE: No more bowing and then plodding on with this nonsense! Get on with Globalizing the Galapagos!


BACK TO THE FUTURE: A few of you Friends on Facebook remember the first several of 100’s of presentations I have made in Tokyo on this very subject. The First was at a Business Association and the second was at Waseda University!! Back in 1998! I twice raised these points!! The Japan Times raises no new issues here! The “Galapagos Effect” is felt nowhere more than in crimes involving sexual harassment and sexual assault in Japan!! Back then!! Still now!!


A WINNER FOR JAPAN: KK World Without Borders Japan trains Japanese to broach subjects once thought to be out of bounds-as linchpins to Negotiation and Debate. These are the most sorely needed but lacking skills in Japan Today. Trump(s rise is a Winner for Japan iif it is spurring students!


TRUMP TRIUMPHS: WHY NAFTA AND TPP NEED TO BE RETOOLED!! There is a Ford in your Future!! And it just may be made in the USA!! Once again!! Making America Great again!! A Lucky 700 jobs in Flat Rock, Michigan, not Mexico!!


DEMOCRATIC SWEEP REDEFINED!! I am reading this WSJ from a still vacant Tully’s Morinaga Tamachi Station. Tokyo may not be fully back to work!! But the United States Senate sure is!! This was supposed to have been the Democratically Controlled Senate according to Democrats drooling over victory that eluded them! What now? Any more predictions?


Came in 15 minutes after opening and still got the best room in the House!! Surprised and shocked Tokyo does not understand this is a workday!! Officially!! Ours began two days ago!!


THE FUN IS NOT ONLY IN THE PRESENTATION BUT IN THE PREPARATION!! Very soon I will be delivering a speech on “Why Trump Won-What Trump Means”. Preparing is fun! This Hilarious Piece “Hillary Clinton’s Late Night Panic” was written by a 2010 Harvard Grad!! A local Democrat had tagged this author “A Kid”- because she just graduated from Harvard in 2010!! This Democrat Fund Raiser also expressed his curious opinion, in predicting a Clinton Victory, that; “the Republican Party had become what it always pretended to be: A Party of older Under-Educated Whites”!! The Presentation will be FUN! But the Fun is not only in the Presentation but in the Preparation!!




 

 


This Article has it right!! The Japan Times parrots something I have been saying for years!! For Japanese Men, of the “Nippon Danji” genre, (Salaryman) Japan is no longer a Man’s World. Cost of Club Membership Way too High in terms of Work-Life Balance, Individuality and Life Mission! !! For American Men, and Japanese Women-a Paradise!


 


 


 


Another take on the Pull!! Holding the British End Up!!


2016 brought major surprise to the USA. 2017 may bring bigger surprises to Japan!!

 


TOKYO WON !! The costliest city in the world for Expats to live!! For businesses wholly or partly American owned a “bigger bang”!! Food for thought as we ponder 2017!!

 


PRESIDENTIAL PARDON ISSUE OF 2017: Barrack Obama got elected partly on the promise to go easier on whistleblowers. He justified his position on the public interest! Yet, in Snowden’s case, Obama prosecuted rather that keep his promise. This WSF Investigative Journalist parries that Obama is right? Is he?

 


QUESTIONS OF 2017: Can A Republican Win in New York? How Big are Trump’s Coat tails?

 


ONE IMPORTANT PIECE OF NEWS! THIS WAS LOST NOT IN TRANSLATION, BUT IN HOLIDAY CELEBRATION! Softbank Chief Executive Masayoshi Son controls Sprint, the U.S. Wireless based carrier. Song will be moving 5000 jobs back to the U.S.A. Good for Sprint – good for the U.S.A.. Trump announced this during the extended Holiday. I was too busy celebrating to post!! Before the Inauguration, one step, to “making America Great Again”!!

 


ANOTHER REASON I LOVE TOKYO DURING THE HOLIDAYS!! You can easily capture THE MOST LUXURIOUS LEATHER SOFA in MORINAGA Tully’s! You do not have to open up the place. There is only one other person you can find in your section! You can to catch up on five days of Newspaper Reading!! Actually, for me the Holiday ended earlier this morning!! I prepared a Training Plan for a Global Skills seminar Afternoon!! All in all-the “bottom line”; an auspicious start to 2017!!

 


Happy New Year to All


TIME FOR TRUMP!! The three hour wait for Prime Minister Abe was only the beginning!! Putin kept Prime Minister Abe waiting for three hours! Putin then budged not even one bit on the Disputed Islands, dashing Japan’s hopes!! This stand-off with Abe was Putin’s First Move this week! Putin’s Second Move took place just one hour ago-this time with Obama! One hour ago Putin announced that he will not retaliate against the USA with tit for tat sanctions (imposed by Obama in retaliation for alleged Russian “interference” with the USA election-as yet unproven)! So many are so shocked at Vladimir Putin’s brilliant move! THe Russian Premier answered U.S. sanctions (expelling 35 Russian diplomats and closing down several Russian Missions in America) with sole simple apparent kindness over this XMAS/New Year Season!! Putin not only failed to retaliate-against the recommendation of his Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov-Putin then invited children of US Diplomats to Russian Celebrations of New Year! As I see it, Putin telegraphed his gamesmanship gambit earlier in his dealings with Japan. So, in the last week of 2016, , Putin has seemingly outmaneuvered Obama and Abe alike! It is nearly 2017!! It is nearly Time for Trump!! Can Trump improve Russian relations? If Trump can, it can only help Japan!

 


Holding the British End Up!! An English View of the Coming Trump Revolution!


THE TOKYO I LOVE BEST!! THE NEW-YEAR EXTENDED HOLIDAY!! WE OWN TOKYO-WE WO STAYED HERE INSTEAD OF GOING ABROAD!!!


THINK POSITIVE!! QUIT WHINING-WANNABE LEADERS: GET A LIFE!! Your complaints about 2016 are bad for you, bad for your readers, and most importantly, BAD FOR ALL YOU TOUCH!! 2016 WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR!! 2017 WILL BE EVEN BETTER!



Freak out!


GIVERS GAIN FROM GREECE: A MESSAGE FOR TRUMP!Soon the USA will be ushering in a new President – Donald Trump – and facing a possible change of policy on Immigration! On January 13 I give “another presentation” on “How Trump Won and What Trump Means”!! I thought I had all of my talking points-before I stumbled on this little gem. A simple Greek Village-which believes in “Givers Gain”!! It maybe even breathe a bit of life to Trump’s Notion of “Safe Haven”!!



Back to work!

“Those Grand Shibaura Sunrises…..just keep on coming”!!


Tonight I had a bit of luck. I have been looking for a current example of media disinformation for a speech I am giving soon on UNOWHO-President Elect Donald Trump! Just a few minutes ago, I ran into this OP ED! Perfect example of the type of disinformation that Establishment Democrats and their Media Friends love! Why? Not now!! (1) No time for that. (2) Facebook is not a lecturn! In case some want to know “why”: click on the link to capture the key:


Last night I was “Joshikai Delivery Man”. I captured this quick video after ‘Delivering the Beef (actually gravy)!! Good work if you can get it!! But now back to my “Day Job”!!


Happy Birthday to 里 ユウスケ


Last night, I discovered great news during “Hinoyojin”, a local Japanese Tradition, which means “safety inspection”. At “HInoyojin”, publicly oriented walk about for about one hour inspecting for dangerous conditions. Then at the party they report on the stuff they saw, usually very minor things. However I discovered some great news. The last of four Scofflaw Homeless Waterfront dwellers is no longer loitering the Shibaura Waterfront! This rids the Shibaura Waterfront of the last one of these dangers to public safety and cleanliness. When I mentioned this great news during the Second Party after the “Hinoyojin”, several right wingers played the nationalist card. They said as an American living in Japan I had no business criticizing Japanese. They defended these dwellers of the dark, -even though they have more money than the right wingers. Now I am a twenty year ++ resident who has invested millions of Yen in a global company and have Investment Visa!! I did not gently nod “Hai Hai, Wakarimashita” to these Nationalistic Right Wingers!! Nor did I permit those idiots to shout me down!! The truth got told last night!! My business partner and I were the only ones who bothered to speak to the scofflaws on the waterfront-The self righteous – right wingers many times passed these vagrants and looked the other way, without even nodding. The truth is that the Honeless Dwellers loitered waterfront for sport only. They were social outcasts in their own families. They had bank accounts and money enough to camp out on Mt. Fujii or at an American National Park!! They wore designer treads and had a huge library right on the water. The last Homeless Dweller laughed at the City officials for being too lazy to get rid of him. Every time the City took his clothes and library he would wire his sons to send money. Within two days he had a library and a clothing collection twice as big as before. In America such lawbreakers would have been given two warnings and then given a choice: luxury jail cell or a Homeless Shelter. But here on the Shibaura Waterfront, four of them were allowed to loiter for three years. Unbelievable!! This is no Culture Difference. Taxpayers have rights, even in Japan, including Americans with an Investment Visa! Lawmakers elected and getting paid by the public in swanky areas like the Shibaura Waterfront have the obligation to earn their cushy salaries. At the end of the day; the Shibaura Waterfront is now a safer, cleaner place. My efforts of the last several years have succeeded. Somebody finally did his or her job!!


At the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Japan, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


By accident I ran into this old post! This gives me great inspiration and pride-both as a Greek-American and as a CEO and partner of a company that is bringing globalization to Japan!

It is day four of I don’t get scammed series – if you’re planning a holiday getaway you’ve got to be prepared because holiday scans could ruin your travel plans. Travel expert Martin Murphy joins us with what to lookout for now welcome Mark:

Martin Murphy: good morning Ainsley

Ainsley: well let’s talk about travel spams what you’re advice to people because a lot of people are going out over the holidays

Martin Murphy: right some number one if someone asked you to do a wire are you doing a vacation route…. Don’t wire money don’t wire money 。。。。。。 Like air B&B where they actually escrow money and don’t release it to the host until 24 hours after you check in so you know you’re going to get what you’re paying for。。。 And if you no there’s an issue you can get it resolved before they play the host because once that host is paid then you’re stuck with that rental

Ainsley oh I couldn’t imagine showing up and there is no vacation!

Martin Murphy: yes and you also have to worry about seems like fake pictures and people put up fake pictures and you are actually think you’re getting that unbelievable Villa and as it turns out that’s not the villa you’re getting。。。。 You know they’ll show you that and then you’ll have a cabin 3 miles from the lake and that’s exactly where you’re staying。。。 Even if you have a place you know there’ve been people that have shown up in a rental and there’s people living in the house

Ainsley:  how do you know though I mean how do you prevent yourself from doing that?

Martin Murphy: you do a few things number one if you’re going to rent a home use sites like Way K Villa… use sites like Hero.. Use use sites like One Fine Stay they actually manage the property…. And what that means though is that you know that the property is what it is… on the other hand you know you actually want to do Google mapping of the property… you want to look at that Google map and make sure that that property is exactly where they say it is… and of course you know I want to say that if you can use a travel agent that they have you no insurance protection and that they work with an accredited suppliers…. So you know you’re actually going to get what you’re paying for… another great tip.

Ainsley: okay you know you actually already told us about reliable sites…. What about when you’re already there what other scams do we need to watch out for?l

Martin Murphy: well let’s look at Wi-Fi I mean everyone goes out and loves free Wi-Fi and gets free Wi-Fi for their network so what does that mean… they have access to your secure network as soon as you logon… two you’re To your photos if you buy something to your credit card information… literally two everything sitting on your computer… so I use something called wireless traveler it’s a little thing about the size of a credit card… something like that it’s pretty much like a wireless credit card I can use it in every country I go to… and then I know I’m in a secure environment and that’s one way to do it… just make sure because I mean even in hotels

Ainsley: I was going to say are you protected in a nice hotel?

Martin Murphy: not necessarily you could have a five star hotel and they could be hacked so…

Ainsley: where do we buy these little cards what are they called?

Martin Murphy: is one company I know called wireless travelers there’s other companies out there… you can buy Wi-Fi hotspots or Wi-Fi spots from AT&T or others but basically bought watch the data would just be blocked data … so you’re not going to get those overcharges that you get killed with when you come back…

Ainsley: what about exchange rate scams?

Martin Murphy: well people just don’t realize…”Old you like us just the charger in your own currency” well when they charged you in your own currency …. Well if they charge you and your own currency at the restaurant or the retail store… it makes you comfortable because you know what you can actually get your credit card bill the problem is they give bad exchange rate which is really 5 to 7% difference than what is the actual exchange rate so use a credit card that has no foreign transaction fees which can add another 2 to 3%…. So you could lose 10% of your purchasing power through dynamic currency conversion… just ask him where they do the actual currency conversion and then add the currency conversion fees.. When you do a foreign transaction on your credit card so check your credit card to make sure there are no foreign transaction fees

Ainsley: Martin thank you for being with us

Martin Murphy: always glad!


On Saturday, Jun (Yukio Hatoyama) Iwata and Yo (Abe Lincoln) Endo and I had a great talk on “The Art of the Deal” at Cafe Triode, the site of our upcoming XMAS Event. Things are looking pretty good for a Great American Style XMAS Feast on the 23rd!!


Time out in the Ginza Softbank to Sim -Free – Wars! Two brand-new Apple I 7+’s and an almost brand-new iPad Pro await the result! Onward to Softbank! Late lunch just finished was delicious! Christmas music was also Great!


This is the first time the entire work day has been on Mountain Bike, from the wee hours of the morning to mid evening. Good to be back in Shibaura!! Runtastic went off at the beginning of the return trip so I had to reboot it!!


SHIBAURA SUNRISE 620 AM : 20 minutes earlier than predictions by timeanddate.com and sunrise-and-sunset.com!!

A Business Lunch with a Trusted Partner, Owada-san-also a New Senior Substitute Trainer for KK World Without Borders Japan! We devoured Shrimp Saganaki, Greek Salad, and Greek Meatballs. The Greek Meatballs featured “Taste of Takoyaki! That is an “extra” you do not find on Santorini, or Greece ! Now-the Restaurant Focus is only about 4 weeks old! Greece was not built in a Day!!


OUT OF MY NATURAL HABITATS: NPO LECTURE: ” Digital Imaging and Medical Detection”. I attended this NPO Event at the Voting Place in Shibaura last night!1 I wanted to try to tweak my Japanese Comprehension at this no – translation event! But I was out of my natural habitats. In training, I say that being a “bit out of your comfort zone is “good for gain” So I guess last night was excellent for me!

TWO OPPOSITE APPROACHES TO SPENDING AND PRIORITIES: TRUMP RIGHT!! US CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND OBAMA ADMINISTRATION: WRONG!! 
Today’s Page 1 of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL highlights two opposite approaches to spending. The first is President Elect Trump’s Twitter that BOEING’s budge proposal for a “New Air Force One” was too expensive at 4 BIllion USD. The second was two nearly identical letters by the US Chamber of Commerce and US Commerce Secretary Penny Prizker to Japanese Prime Minister Abe criticizing a Japanese Plan to stimulate Drug Price cuts. Trump’s approach is 100% correct. It will allow the US Government optimize cost effectiveness and then to reallocate the gain for infrastructure, health or other national priorities. The US Chamber of Commerce’s and the Obama Administration approach is 100% wrong. It will injure both American and Japanese consumers by placing necessary drugs further out of reach. At the same time it will add to the unconscionable profits of the powerful American Pharmaceutical Industry. BOEING should take heed and significantly slash its AIR FORCE ONE Bid. The Abe Administration should “KILL BY SILENCE ” the two letters by the Chamber and Prizker}, and GO FORWARD with its plan to annually review and slash prices for essential pharmaceuticals. So far the Abe Administration is doing just that. Stand tough, Abe, when you see Obama today in Hawaii, not only for the Japanese Consumer here in Japan, but for American Consumers as well, both here and in the USA!

I enjoyed an auspicious DJ Debut from 730 PM to 10:30 PM last night at Cafe Triode’s “Back to tThe Disco Night”. It featured my DJ’ing 30 top hits of the 60’s thru 80’s Golden Era, along with Dance Contests and other Games. i also appreciate the glowing feedback from people who attended. Not to mention the gifts that were given by the organizer, Mukouyama Katsuhiko! More to come tomorrow as soon as I sift through the 3 hours or so of 60’s to 80’s Disco Music, Dancing and Games! I especially like the CD Memo of this Debut of mine as well as the CD of the Ladies Dance Contest that all participants received. Much video to sort out today before more content comes on!!

YUKO MORI: IMPROVE YOUR ENGLISH!! NO NEED FOR A COMPLETE TPP TRANSLATION TO JAPANESE! !Here is Yuko Mori, Diet Member, (far right) walking off the Diet Stage. Mori complained because some of the TPP was not translated. I am a negotiation consultant and a debate trainer. Every Diet Member on the global stage should know the global language of International Politics well enough to do their jobs, in this case reading the TPP and related documents!! Members of National Legislatures in the EU and ASEAN Nations master English! Prime Minister Abe knows English! Japan has had a special relationship with the United States for over half a half century! Japan’s Diet Members are on the GLOBAL STAGE! English is the Global Language! DO NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT THE TPP BEING IN ENGLISH. YOU CAN READ SOME ENGLISH. IMPROVE!!

To those Democrats deluding themselves that their daughters will have to fight the same battles as their grandmothers did due to a new Republican administration! Let them look at McFarland!

POLITICAL KABUKI: NOW MORE THAN EVER! BROUGHT TO YOU BY DEMOCRATS IN DENIAL: DIVIDING AMERICA MORE! At a Minato-ku Eatery, 3 months ago, I dined with a A Democratic Money Man! The prediction from the MONEY MAN: “Clinton has already won. What you will see in the next 3 months is nothing but political kabuki!!” Three weeks ago, (more or less) On Election Day, the Money Man “ate it up and spit it out” (before Trump even won)! But now, performance after performance of Prime Time Political Kabuki: ” 3 RECOUNTS”! NO EVIDENCE of HACKING! BUT WHAT A SHOW!!, Recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan, probably Pennsylvania!! While Democrats DENY the Dirty Tricks that cost SANDERS A POSSIBLE WIN! (Enlightened Democrats are prepping up their Class Action against the Democratic National Committee) But Establishment Democrats are trashing MILLIONS OF CONTRIBUTOR’S DOLLARS! SAD!!” It won’t change a thing!! T A Free Show. But it is NOT FREE!! America becomes more divided!

Do you feel like WINNING ONCE AGAIN, JAPAN? YES YOU CAN!! ENGLISH IS A MUST in CONTRACTS, in PROMOTION, in EVERYDAY CORPORATE COMMUNICATION! Japanese Media like the NIKKEI here has heralded this for years. Yet the galapagos like fear globalization will make Japanese…..less JAPANESE is forcing Japan to settle for second place, or worse, in Asia!! Add to this fact…. This NIKKEI falls short! NOT ONLY COMPANIES!!! SDF, IPO’s. WANNABE POLITICIANS and other HYBRID ENTITIES MUST ALSO GLOBALIZE! The SDF could not communicate with American Military dealing with disaster from the Great Earthquake in 2011!! This left a lasting impression! CHINESE have not become less CHINESE by GLOBALIZING! Rather, it has made the CHINESE WINNERS! Do you feel like WINNING ONCE AGAIN, JAPAN? YES YOU CAN!!

HILLARY CLINTON IS NO ATHENA!!! MORE DENIAL DISSECTED: OBSERVER: (the) arrogance of Clinton and her voter base continues to prevent them from assuming any… responsibility for Trump’s win. Clinton celebrity surrogate Lena Dunham ran a baffling blog post on her website that aptly demonstrates this cluelessness….writer Virginia Heffernan declared, “Hillary Clinton did everything right in this campaign, and she won more votes than her opponent did. She won. She cannot be faulted, criticized, or analyzed for even one more second. Instead, she will be decorated as an epochal heroine far too extraordinary to be contained by the mere White House…… Hillary is Athena.”
MY COMMENT: I am a Greek American who has brought the richness and beauty of the Greek Mythology to Tokyo. Trust me…..Hillary Clinton is no Athena!!!

The Republican Sweep of November 2016 is brought to vivid life! To those Democrats in Denial who think Clinton in California degrades this …soul searching and humility….not self denial….is the best medicine…for you ….and for the Republic!

Just a bit of a reality check for all those Democrats in Disarray and Denial!! With Hillary Clinton’s Popular Vote and 2000 Y they can buy a coffee at the Grand Hyatt in Roppongi Hills !! That may be as good as it gets!

AS GOOD AS IT GETS!! TRUMP/ABE MEET AT THE TOWERS: Politics is personal!! First the personal relationship, then the policy differences!! In December 2015, in Waterville Valley NH, Trump touted:, “If somebody attacks Japan, we have to immediately go and start World War III, OK? If we get attacked, Japan doesn’t have to help us. Somehow, that doesn’t sound so fair.” But now Trump Facebooked: “It was a pleasure to have Prime Minister Shinzo Abe stop by my home and begin a great friendship.” AT THIS STAGE, THAT IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS!!

NEWS OF THE DAY: BACKGROUND ABE/TRUMP MEETING: Prime Minister Shinzo Abe began a meeting with President Elect Trump at around 7 AM today, Japan Time (5 PM WEDNESDAY NY time). Abe seeks assurances of continuation without change in the Japan US Alliance. Trump has campaigned on a platform of a “more balanced” Alliance. There is a backdrop, of rumored transition troubles, including a Chris Christie ally being bid “Sayonara!! Will transition troubles degrade this meeting?

I’ve hammered this theme home in training, and presentations -many times – that business and political trends are towards simplicity by focusing only upon the best and the least information and in favor of maximum “personal touch” -definitely away from overly relying on computers- striking “the right balance”! This Observer captures President Obama saying it best -“if you want to win you’ve got to show up”!

Predictions now beginning -here is one of the most recent! Many more-wait and see!

昨日は次期の新米国大統領が決まりました。ドナルド・トランプは、ロナルド・レーガン(私は中小企業のためのホワイトハウス会議に最も若い被任命者として参加)の政治ロードマップを復活させました。

驚くことではありませんでした。私は、そんな事も起きるだろうと予測していました。

何があったか、それがなぜ起こったか、そして、それが日本のために何を意味するか検証のイベントを近々開催する予定でいます。

Yesterday, Donald Trump resurrected the Political Road Map created by President Ronald Reagan (whom I served as the youngest appointee to the White House Council for Small Business) Not surprising, then, I had predicted that what happened yesterday could…and probably would…happen.Great insights by our participants will be covered later!! We are forward planning an Event to examine what happened, why it happened and what it means for Japan.

 

この現象、一緒に話し合いませんか。

Just several days before election this was what almost everyone, except us, thought!! Now let the Debate go on!! What happened?

Today a Facebook Friend of Greek Ancestry wished me a Happy Name Day. “Name Days” are an Orthodox Greek Tradition. St. James was a Warrior King of the Ancient Times! Though he is Sainted, in his day, he did not always act like a Saint!! This Art commemorates St. James! (The fellow on the horse holding the spear!!)

Good evening: A Brexit Boom in Britain !! Just after news that Greece is choking as I predictred, from “Austerity” !! The EU Troika :! WRONG Greek Prime Minister Tsirpis: WRONG !! American President Obama :! WRONG Citizens of Greece Overwhelmingly Voted That “NO” (Omikuron’itaiota) In Their National Referendum (On The Question Of Staying In The EU): RIGHT !!
? Will The Greek People Continue To Fall In Line With Patronizing And Pliant Lackeys In Their National Government Will Greece Continue Marching In step to the tune of an arrogant, autocratic, and austerity obsessive EU and its Teutonic Masters? “Brexit Boom: THE five Charts …..” is the grandest grab for Greece to lead a wake up call to other Southern Economies such Spain and Portugal. Actions should follow words should Greece summons the strength of its ancestry to say OHI once again!

Accountability is the most important function in grooming global leadership. It creates trust amongst employees, clientele, and the general public alike. It is the one medium of leadership that is perhaps most troublesome to certain aspects of Japanese culture. The group mentality indigenous to many traditional Japanese organisations stresses “nemawashi” and group responsibility. This often makes it difficult if not impossible to determine responsibility and accountability and to take care of problems that arise. In terms of building global relationships this can create problems in team building, management, as well as cultural difficulties and even legal complications. The so-called “bottom line” often can suffer. Training and cultural knowledge are the keys to dealing with accountability difficulties amongst Japanese Management in creating global relationships.  SETTING EXAMPLE BY ACCOUNTABILITYscreen-shot-2016-11-21-at-11-16-08-am
