The Japanese Sword & Love Exchange

They became “Honorary Aryans,” apart from other Asians and now western in many ways.  The World’s Fair in Philadelphia, in 1876, heralded this distinction: the Chinese were declared a dying race; Japan was praised.” (P. 182)

The Imperial Cruise: A Secret History of Empire and War, by James Bradley

The photograph above was taken on ‘The Hights’ where I suspect Joaquin Miller was conducting a ‘Love Exchange’ between Japanese Men and Aryan Women. These mixed-race folks may be Government Agents – of both nations -who were part of ‘The Love Boat Conspiracy’ against Czarist Russia, that an author concluded led to the Cold War after the army of Nicholas lost to the Emperor of Japan. This gave rise to The Red Menace that is forever constructing a Trojan Horse so the Deceived Peaceniks will prance out and haul it into the Walls of Troy.

“These founding fathers knew that the westerners felt that the Asians were inferior – so they decided to craft an identity separate from other Asians.  They developed a western-styled military; they wore western clothes; they strung telegraph wire; they practiced using knives and forks.  They opened Japan to western teachers and missionaries.  The sent their children to western schools. Most importantly, they developed the western attitude of colonization through conquest.  (P. 182)”

What I am seeing is a plan where Bohemians and Poets are employed by a Bohemian Wild Man, to forever alter the Culture of the Pacific. Consider the attempt of the Wild Bay Area Hippies to end the Vietnam War, and bring the Dove of Peace to the whole world. Alas, I found evidence that the U.S. Government backed our Way of Life, and our ideals. Instead of sending our male troops to Vietnam, we should have sent cute American Runaways high on LSD – to Hanoi. We should have sent………Charlie’s Girls.

Why didn’t we employ a Trojan Horse on those Gooks? The CIA should have put Timothy Leary ‘The Cosmic Aryan’ over there – along with his naked dancing girls! We told you so! We should have gotten – their people to jump out windows!

This argument between Linkletter and Leary capsulizes the one that was born in the Bay Area – sixty years before Hippy came along. After Perry’s battleships sailed into Tokyo harbor, the isolated Japanese had a tough choice to make, fight or flight. Tens of thousand of Americas were killed in Vietnam and suffered brain damage. Many committed suicide. Many took LSD as a means to end the war. Was there another way?

“Give peace a chance!”

Last night, I was talking to a friend about the Eras we have gone through in our lifetime. We started with the Hot Rod Era when young men hung around in garages working on cars and reading Hot Rod magazines. Then I asked him what was the one prevailing Myth that permeated our existence and is the High Water Mark of our stay on Earth? We came up with Disneyland, the Academy Awards, Miss America Beauty pageant. These events were representative of American Inclusiveness. People all over the world wanted to be a part of these cultural events. Young White Men felt proud that we owned these things, and that the lesser people’s wanted our things, and were envious of us. We felt we were Divine Cultural Exporters of the Capitalist Way of Life. Then came the Vietnam War. There went – American Democracy, in this illegal, un-declared war! What did we have left to sell that the Commies wanted?

LATimes Caption: “Mickey Meets Yippie: Anaheim police in riot gear line Main Street in August 1970 after 300 Yippies invaded the park, ran roughshod and hoisted the Viet Cong flag on Tom Sawyer Island. Eighteen were arrested, mostly for gate crashing or disturbing the peace.

America was now the Exporter of War. We were told we must fight to preserve our way of life. Some young white men didn’t buy it. When we went ‘Over There’ it was to help Europeans preserve their way of life. After taking part in two World Wars, we came home to OUR unique Way of Life – that became the envy of the world. What had gone wrong? Why Vietnam? That war crushed the Rebel Teen Boy, the James Dean Sex Machine! We put our All American Hot Rodders where “The Wee Brown Man” could have their way with them – while we watched! This was repeated in Iraq. We go in with our dicks good and hard. Does our mind ever follow?

And what about The Wild Women who joined the Bohemian Art & Poetry club, ran with the Nazi youth, and slept with those Samurai in the Oakland Hills? Oakland is home to the Hell’s Angels, the Raiders, and the Black Panthers.

THE COLD WAR is a great mythical event of our lifetime. It consumed us. We never got over it. There was no Winner. Now, here come Donald Trump, who is Burt Parks, Walt Disney, and a Hollywood Movie Star rolled into one. Trump is a Living Publicity Stunt. He promises to “Make America Great Again.” No one is asking him what he means. He has grabbed the old Davy Crockett crowd by their coon-tails and is taking them back to the Promised Land Castle. Is that Tinkerbelle by his side. She’s a real looker, a grownup, and very fuckable. How many pubescant boys wanted to fuck Tink? Well, now that she is menstruating – you can! Dig those tits! Great cleavage!

The Trumps want to build a high wall around the New Disneyland – and charge admission. They want to make the world envious of us, again. The Trumps are the Makers of Envy. Once again the world wants to pop the magical cherry of our little Lolita. Nabokov got it right. Trump is Clare Quilty.

“God…….I wish I had his money: Her looks: Their power! Their fame! Their radiant youth! Here they come, down the red carpet to their waiting Rolls Royce. There they go to their magical castle on the hill. Look! Donald (duck) is wearing a Coonskin cap! He’s a real American! Go Donald MacRonald! Go Hugh Hefner! Holy shit! Trump is doing Hef. He’s doing – the Girl Next Door! There he goes, back to the Playboy Mansion!”

And the winner is……………………ARYAN SEX SELLS! Sex is the greatest myth of my lifetime! Here is Peter Pan and Tinkerbelle! These two will never grownup! Americans equate Sex with Eternal Life. This is our Special Brand of Christianity, that radical Muslims – hate!

As the represeantive of the Catholic Church in Congress, Paul Ryan wants  to know how far the Trumps (and Kelly) are going to take this….THING!

“As far as it takes – baby!”

Trump is a One Man Sex Band. He even owns lust in his heart for his own daughter! When you got gobs of MONEY you can confess such things in public – and not go to jail or confession! Fuck Ryan’s Congressional Confessional!  This is why Trump’s got the old Hot Rodders in his back pocket! I’m surprised Trump does not have his own motorcycle club.

“Here comes….THE WILD ONE! Here comes the Great Pagan God – Pan!

Below is my kindred’s ‘Manifest Destiny’ . Our White Arrogance is shocking. Racist terms are used without shame. Miller refers to his Japanese compatrots as his “Wee brown men.” Yone wrote a poem that bids his countrymen to “fight”, while Miller lets lose poetic doves of peace – that came back to haunt us in a Greek Tragedy named ‘Pearl Harbor’.

Here is a picture of Zorthian celebrating Primerva. He is titled ‘The Last Bohemian’. The biggest myth of my time on earth, is, that we are a Christian Nation. We are a Pagan Nation that worships PAN. So does JA-PAN. Young American girls carried around naked Barbie Dolls. The Barbie Doll Era has been revived, given new life! And, we thought we were going to have a well-conducted and respectful Repbublican Debate. Who saw it coming? Trump grabbed Beautiful Barbie, burst out of the debate arena, and climbed Trump Towers.  It was like the Japs attacking Pearl Harbor and Troy all over again. He caught them with their pants down. It was Sunday morning. It was always Sunday morning in the Anti-sex and Anti-abortion Republican Party. The party is over. Turn off the lights. Let the Sex Games begin – in the New Dark Age!

What Pan did to a goat. Trump did to an elephant!

I warned you. I told you there would be consequences for voting false Christian prophets into office in order to hurt the Poor! In the end, they got what they deserve!

We should have offered to build a Disney World in Hanoi. They could always say;

“No thanks!”

Well guess what. United Vietnam is building Happyland. Will we ever see Hippyland built in America – a real Pagan place for real Pagans?

Fuck no!

However, we might see a Donaldland if he is elected President. Trump has plans for a new American Imperialism. Where is he going to get his troops – Mexico?

In 2014, Vietnam plans to unveil a $2 billion amusement park just outside Ho Chi Minh City called Happyland.

With palatial buildings, roller coasters, themed attractions and a 1,000-room five-star hotel, the massive project — which has attracted investment from Joe Jackson, father of the late Michael Jackson — hopes to attract 14 million people annually. As we looked over the video of the theme park’s plans and projected images, we noticed major similarities between Happyland and another happy place — one that some have called “the happiest place on earth” since Walt Disney coined the phrase in 1955. In particular, we think Happyland looks a whole lot like Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom theme park in Orlando, Florida. Here’s our slideshow of Happyland renderings alongside what we believe is their Magic Kingdom counterparts

“How many of my readers, family and friends, thought I was crazy when I demanded the Christian-right and their allies, the Tea Party, get out of my kindred’s party – and REPENT! If they did not REPENT, they would be destroyed? Well, they are destroyed, and that makes me a real PROPHET! Now what?

Jesus Christ in America has taken another huge blow! Republican Christian Prophets are WRONG yet again. God has a penalty for being wrong when it comes to employing his name in vain such as invoking HIM for political gain.

I am now in the position to REBORN the Republican Party founded by my kindred, John Fremont and Jessie Benton. Indeed, I am thinking of reforming the Jessie Scouts to get rid of the Living Dead who are going after women in Texas – out of spite!

How about forming a punk rock band called ‘The Dead Republicans’.”

Megyn Kelly’s much-publicized broadcast special with Donald Trump was supposed to launch the Fox News star into the stratosphere of television anchordom. Instead, the widely panned show seems to have achieved the opposite result: It exposed the extent of her limited mainstream appeal. Kelly drew just 4.8 million viewers on Tuesday night, a number television executives say is a disappointment by any measure. Three senior executives I spoke with say an audience of 9 million would have been a success. “Not good for her at all,” was how one insider put it.

The role of Clare Quilty was greatly expanded from that in the novel and Kubrick allowed Sellers to adopt a variety of disguises throughout the film. Early on in the film, Quilty appears as himself: a conceited, avant-garde playwright with a superior manner. Later he is an inquisitive policeman on the porch of the hotel, where Humbert and Lolita are staying. Next he is the intrusive Beardsley High School psychologist, Doctor Zempf, who lurks in Humbert’s front room, to persuade him to give Lolita more freedom in her after-school activities.[8] He is then seen as a photographer backstage at Lolita’s play. Later in the film, he is an anonymous phone caller conducting a survey.

Senator Thomas Hart Benton on Manifest Destiny (1846)

It would seem that the White race alone received the divine command, to subdue and replenish the earth: for it is the only race that has obeyed it-the only race that hunts out new and distant lands, and even a New World, to subdue and replenish . . . .

The Red race has disappeared from the Atlantic coast; the tribes that resisted civilization met extinction. This is a cause of lamentation with many. For my part, I cannot murmur at what seems to be the effect of divine law. I cannot repine that is this Capitol has replace the wigwam-this Christian people, replaced the savages-white matrons, the red squaws . . . . Civilization, or extinction, has been the fate of all people who have found themselves in the trace of the advancing Whites, and civilization, always the preference of the Whites, has been pressed as an object, while extinction has followed as a consequence of its resistance . . . .

The van of the Caucasian race now top the Rocky Mountains, and spread down on the shores of the Pacific. In a few years a great population will grow up there, luminous with the accumulated lights of the European and American civilization. There presence in such a position cannot be without it influence upon eastern Asia. . . .

The Mongolian, or Yellow race is there, four hundred millions in number spreading almost to Europe; a race once the foremost of the human family in the arts of civilization, but torpid and stationary for thousands of years. It is a race far above the Ethiopian, or Black-above the Malay, or Brown, (if we admit five races)-and above the American Indian or Red; it is a race far above all these, but still far below the White and like all the rest, must receive an impression from the superior race whenever they come in contact . . . .

The sun of civilization must shine across the sea; socially and commercially the van of the Caucasians, and the rear of the Mongolians, must intermix. They must talk together, and trade together, and marry together. . . . Moral and intellectual superiority will do the rest; the White race will take the ascendant, elevating what is susceptible of improvement-wearing out what is not. . . . And thus the youngest people, and the newest land, will become the reviver and the regenerator of the oldest . . . .

It is in this point of view, and as acting upon the social, political, and religious condition of Asia, and giving a new point of departure to her ancient civilization, that I look upon the settlement of the Columbia river by the van of the Caucasian race as the most momentous human event in the history of man since his dispersion over the face of the earth.

A handful of Japanese decided it was better to get with the program than be co-opted by the Europeans.  Bradley refers to this group as the Japanese “founding fathers.”  These men, coming from the southern island of Kyushu, fought their way to the royal capital of Kyoto.  On January 3, 1868, they stormed the royal compound and took control of the young emperor – renaming him Meiji. (P. 180)

These founding fathers knew that the westerners felt that the Asians were inferior – so they decided to craft an identity separate from other Asians.  They developed a western-styled military; they wore western clothes; they strung telegraph wire; they practiced using knives and forks.  They opened Japan to western teachers and missionaries.  The sent their children to western schools. Most importantly, they developed the western attitude of colonization through conquest.  (P. 182)

They became “Honorary Aryans,” apart from other Asians and now western in many ways.  The World’s Fair in Philadelphia, in 1876, heralded this distinction: the Chinese were declared a dying race; Japan was praised. (P. 182)

The Imperial Cruise: A Secret History of Empire and War, by James Bradley

This “gift” is described well in this book by Bradley:

In the summer of 1905, President Theodore Roosevelt – known as Teddy to the public – dispatched the largest diplomatic delegation to Asia in U.S. history: Teddy sent his secretary of war, seven senators, twenty-three congressman, various military and civilian officials, and his daughter on an ocean liner from San Francisco to Hawaii, Japan, the Philippines, China, Korea, then back to San Francisco. (P. 1)

Roosevelt was confident that the future of the United States would be determined more by its position facing China than in its position facing Europe.  Certainly, the position in Europe already had a strong foothold, via the Anglo-American empire and America’s emerging role in it.

Roosevelt’s held a superior view of the great Anglo race – emerging from the Caucasus, moving through central Europe (the Germanic tribes), on to England then the eastern fringe of North America.  From there, an entire continent was conquered.  Roosevelt saw the next steps to the west, meaning the entire Pacific, even unto China.

And for this, he sent the delegation, led by William Howard Taft.  Their purpose was to secure the continuation of this tribal wandering to the west.

What is the tie to this statement, referenced above, by Pilger?

…behind [Roosevelt’s] Asian whispers that critical summer of 1905 was a very big stick – the bruises from which would catalyze World War II in the Pacific, the Chinese Communist Revolution, the Korean War, and an array of tensions that inform our lives today.  The twentieth-century American experience in Asia would follow in the diplomatic wake first churned by Theodore Roosevelt. (P. 4)

To gain a foothold in Asia, Roosevelt felt it necessary to gain an ally in the region – one to do the that Japan must recognize “its Christian obligation to join the family of Christendom.” (P. 176) heavy lifting.  His problem – there was no Anglo presence capable of the task, unlike the migrating tribes that ended up reaching the Pacific coast of the New World.  Japan was to play the part of “Anglo” – don’t ask, I will come to this later.

As early as 1790 (yes, you read that right) and continuing through the middle decades of the nineteenth century, the United States reached out to Japan via the US navy at least 27 times.  The Japanese steadfastly refused the American advances.  This did not sit so well with representatives of the “superior race”:

In an 1846 speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate, Senator Thomas Hart Benton noted that Asians were inferior to the American Aryan and, “like all the rest, must receive an impression from the superior race whenever they come in contact.” (P. 175)

American ministers played their part:

The missionary Samuel Wells Williams wrote, “I have a full conviction that the seclusion policy of the nations of Eastern Asia is not according to God’s plan of mercy to these peoples, and their government must change them through fear or force, that his people may be free.” (P. 176)

In 1852, the Secretary of the Navy, John Kennedy, wrote that Japan must recognize “its Christian obligation to join the family of Christendom.” (P. 176)heavy lifting.  His problem – there was no Anglo presence capable of the task, unlike the migrating tribes that ended up reaching the Pacific coast of the New World.  Japan was to play the part of “Anglo” – don’t ask, I will come to this later.

…secretary of state, Daniel Webster, argued that Japan had “no right” to refuse the U.S. Navy’s “reasonable” request to commandeer Japanese sovereign soil for its coaling stations because the coal at issue was “but a gift of Providence, deposited, by the Creator of all things, in the depths of the Japanese islands for the benefit of the human family.” (P. 176)

All around Japan through eastern and Southeast Asia, western powers were taking control: China was being dismembered. Additionally, Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Burma, and India all were controlled by one or another European power. (P. 180)

A handful of Japanese decided it was better to get with the program than be co-opted by the Europeans.  Bradley refers to this group as the Japanese “founding fathers.”  These men, coming from the southern island of Kyushu, fought their way to the royal capital of Kyoto.  On January 3, 1868, they stormed the royal compound and took control of the young emperor – renaming him Meiji. (P. 180)

These founding fathers knew that the westerners felt that the Asians were inferior – so they decided to craft an identity separate from other Asians.  They developed a western-styled military; they wore western clothes; they strung telegraph wire; they practiced using knives and forks.  They opened Japan to western teachers and missionaries.  The sent their children to western schools. Most importantly, they developed the western attitude of colonization through conquest.  (P. 182)

They became “Honorary Aryans,” apart from other Asians and now western in many ways.  The World’s Fair in Philadelphia, in 1876, heralded this distinction: the Chinese were declared a dying race; Japan was praised. (P. 182)

By this time, the Americans sent a capable instructor to the Japanese founding fathers,Charles LeGendre, known as “General.”  He offered the following advice as to how Japan should move the rest of Asia from barbarism to civilization:

LeGendre recommended Anglo-Saxon methods: “Pacify and civilize them if possible, and if not…exterminate them or otherwise deal with them as the United States and England have dealt with the barbarians.” (P. 188)

Japan exercised this method of civilization against Taiwan – an island previously subservient to both Japan and China. (P. 190) Next, they looked to Korea.  Dressed now in Western suits and top hat, the Japanese came via an American-made warship, bearing an American-style treaty of friendship.  After all, it worked for Perry! Given the backbone provided by China, the Koreans didn’t budge.  (P. 192)

In the background, the Americans gave verbal assurances to the Korean King Gojong regarding independence, all the while pushing Japan to aggress against this neighbor. (P. 195, 213)

Japan’s western methods further developed: Japan declared war on China on August 1, 1894. (P. 197) According to the New York Times:

“The war is often called a conflict between Eastern and Western civilization.  It would be more accurate to call it a conflict between civilization and barbarism.” (P. 197)

The birthing of the “Honorary Aryans” was a success!

Many expected that China would make short work of the upstart Japanese.  Instead, China ended up suing for peace:

In the resulting Treaty of Shimonoseki, China was forced to cede Taiwan and the Liaodong Peninsula, pay a large indemnity, accept that Korea was truly independent, and accord the Japanese the same unequal diplomatic and commercial privileges enjoyed by White Christians in China. (P. 198)

Japan further finalized a treaty with Great Britain – the treaty was seen as a dagger aimed at Czarist Russia.  The US would also have liked to join Britain and Japan in this treaty, but Roosevelt felt there was no chance to get such a treaty through Congress.

Japan’s propaganda machine went into full force.  Baron Kentaro Kaneko was sent to the US in 1904 to woo the American public, and to further influence Teddy Roosevelt.

He took the country by storm. (P. 218)  He also convinced Roosevelt of the necessity that Japan be allowed a free hand in the Far East, to include Korea.  All American promises regarding support for that country fell by the wayside.

War between Japan and Russia was soon to come – with Japan striking a surprise attack without a war declaration (imagine that). (P. 214) The Russians protested; Roosevelt cheered (as did his distant cousin 37 years later for another “surprise” attack).  Roosevelt warned France and Germany against coming to Russia’s aid. (P. 216)

The clergy in the US got in on the act; Reverend Robert MacArthur, the pastor of New York City’s Calvary Baptist Church for 35 years, delivered a sermon entitled “Japan’s Victory – Christian Opportunity”:

The Great Master said, ‘By their fruits ye shall know them.”  Apply that standard, and you will find that the nominally heathen Japan is more Christian than ‘Holy Russia.’ …The victory of the Japanese is a distinct triumph for Christianity. (P. 236)

I don’t believe this is what the “Great Master” meant to suggest.

In any case, Japan had made it to the pinnacle of civilized society.  An American newspaper reported:

Ever since the Chicago Exposition [of 1892-1893] foreigners have gradually acquired some knowledge of Japanese culture, but it was limited to the fact that Japan produces beautiful pottery, tea and silk.  Since the outbreak of the Sino-Japanese War last year, however, an attitude of respect for Japan may be felt everywhere, and there is talk of nothing but Japan this and Japan that… (P. 199)

Militarism made Japan civilized and respectable:

“Japan is the only nation in Asia that understands the principles and methods of Western civilization…. All the Asiatic nations are now faced with the urgent necessity of adjusting themselves to the present age.  Japan should be their natural leader in that process.”

Theodore Roosevelt, 1905 (P. 217)

Roosevelt would broker a treaty between Japan and Russia; during this time, he first offered the idea of a “Japanese Monroe Doctrine” for Asia. (P. 243)

This is the background for “The Imperial Cruise” and for Taft’s trip to Asia.

Within a few short years, Japan’s militarism would terrorize much of the Far East:

“The average Westerner…was wont to regard Japan as barbarous while she indulged in the gentle arts of peace: he calls her civilized since she began to commit wholesale slaughter in the Manchurian battlefields.” Okakura Kakuzo, 1906 (P. 167)

Ultimately, Japan’s militarism would lead it into a deadly conflict against that same US government.  The propaganda machine now turned the Japanese into pariahs.

The key event in this history – the culmination of the American advances that preceded it and the legitimization of the Japanese militarism that followed it – was crafted by Teddy Roosevelt.  He sent Taft on the “Imperial Cruise,” with the objective of getting Japan to play a role – an Aryan puppet:

Taft was Roosevelt’s secretary of war, and he led the delegation.  He was carrying secret oral instructions from Roosevelt.  These instructions were kept secret from both Congress and the State Department.  (P. 168) A few Japanese leaders knew that the president had a secret plan for Japan – including Emperor Meiji: Roosevelt would grant Japan a protectorate in Korea in exchange for Japan’s assisting the American penetration of Asia. (P. 170)

Taft knew he could not make any formal commitment – the Constitution and Congress stood in his way.  However, he offered to his Japanese counterpart:

“Without any agreement at all…just as confidently as if a treaty had been signed…appropriate action by the United States could be counted upon” to support Japan’s sphere of influence in Asia… (P. 249)

With this commitment, Korea was subjected to 45 years of Japan’s tortuous subjugation.  China was made a continuous war zone.  One of the most militaristic regimes of the first half of the twentieth centuries was birthed.  The US, if not the father, was certainly the mid-wife.

It is easy to see World War II in Europe as a continuation of the Great War.  In Asia, the connections stretch back even further.  And in both cases, the United States government played a leading role.

The brownie’s sword is as a snake,
A sudden, sinuous copperhead:
It makes no flourish, no mistake;
It darts but once—the man is dead!
’Tis short and black; ’tis never seen
Save when, close forth, it leaps its sheath
And, snake-like, darts up from beneath.
But oh, its double edge is keen!
It strikes but once, then on, right on:
The sword is gone—the Russ is gone!—From the Century.

Russia su engaged in the war; at first, to await the outcomes of certain naval battles, and later to preserve the dignity of Russia by averting a “humiliating peace”. The war concluded with the Treaty of Portsmouth, mediated by US President Theodore Roosevelt. The complete victory of the Japanese military surprised world observers. The consequences transformed the balance of power in East Asia, resulting in a reassessment of Japan’s recent entry onto the world stage. Scholars continue to debate the historical significance of the war.

ffered numerous defeats by Japan, but Tsar Nicholas II was convinced that Russia would win and chose to remain

One Response to The Japanese Sword & Love Exchange

  1. Reblogged this on rosamondpress and commented:

    When I posted this six days ago, I did not know Obama was going to be the first president to visit Japan. He is due to speak any minute. He is assuring Japan we are allies in Asia. I would like to see a Bohemian cultural exchange. We need to defeat Trump and create a new creative culture in the world democracies.
