Imagine waking up tomorrow and discovering that your country is actually run by a bunch of weird foreigners. Japan is going through a crisis like that right now, in a scandal that’s received almost no Western media attention. One can’t help but ask the same question about America in 2023.
The Ukrainian “president” Volodymyr Zelensky showed up in the US again this week, rattling his tin cup to beg for more money. As expected, most of our “elected” representatives in Congress hurled themselves at his feet so they could suck his toes and worship him. Who’s really running our country?
Buckle up, because this is a truly weird story. And every word of it is true.
Former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe was set to deliver a speech on the morning of July 8, 2022. At 11:30 a.m., a man approached Abe from behind and shot him in the neck with a homemade shotgun.
Political assassinations are extremely rare these days, so it instantly made international headlines. What we haven’t heard about until now is the reason why 41-year-old Tetsuya Yamagami killed Abe. Was he just some crazy dude with an axe to grind, like the Unabomber or Adam Schiff?
Yamagami immediately confessed to the crime in front of police—and he told them the motive. But his reasons for killing Shinzo Abe certainly sounded nutty.
Yamagami told the cops he believed that Abe was involved in the Unification Church of South Korea—a cult better known as the “Moonies.” The cult was founded in the 1950s by the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who claimed that he was the second coming of Jesus Christ. Yamagami said the cult had ruined his life. His mother gave all the family’s money away, and his brother committed suicide because of their impoverishment.
He had intended to assassinate the current leader of the Moonies, Moon’s widow Hak Ja Han. But since he couldn’t get to her, he decided to kill Shinzo Abe because of his deep ties to the cult, which actually dated back to when Abe’s grandfather was the prime minister, and also a member of the cult.
The cops initially breathed a sigh of relief. They were just dealing with a garden-variety lunatic, right?
Except that Yamagami’s story turned out to be completely true. Not only was Shinzo Abe deeply—and secretly—connected to the Moonies, but so was his grandfather. Elections were set to take place in Japan two days after Abe’s assassination, so the police covered up their initial findings. They couldn’t have the public finding out that one of the most popular politicians in modern Japanese history belonged to some weird foreign cult.
After the elections, the Moonies confirmed that Yamagami’s mother was a member of the cult, and the story exploded from there. It was confirmed that Shinzo Abe had been a member of the cult, and his prime minister grandfather had been a founding member of the cult with Sun Myung Moon back in the 1950s.
Oh, but it gets even weirder.
By September of last year, Shinzo Abe’s political party—the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP)—also had deep connections to the Moonies. Out of the 379 seats that the LDP held in Japan’s Parliament, 190 of them were cult members. They paid membership fees to the cult, attended “church” services, and accepted help from an army of Moonie campaign volunteers in their elections.
Another 290 members of prefectural assemblies in Japan (sort of like a county or municipal government here) turned out to be Moonies, along with seven prefectural governors. Since the assassination of Shinzo Abe, the Japanese people have come to learn—much to their shock and dismay—that the political party that has been ruling their country for the past 70 years is actually run by a South Korean cult.
Which brings us full circle to America. Who is actually running our country? It’s not “we the people.” I don’t know a single person in real life who supports sending another dime to Ukraine. We have elections stolen from us, vaccine mandates, and gobs of money spent on subsidies for electric cars that no one wants or can afford. The Moonie influence in Japan was hiding in plain sight for 70 years, and they are only just now learning the truth of the matter. It was kept a secret all that time.
Who is running our country—and why do they so desperately want to stop Donald Trump from becoming president again?
