The 11 AM news cycle oddly omits any mention of Japan, but the international coverage does include a long section on Ukraine, giving some voice to the Ukraine side. It doubles down on US for weapons dumping.

But something's up as the clock strikes 12
The July 9 noon news will lead off with a shocking story from Japan
#abe #cctv #japan #xi #akie
News 30 will give the firmest report on Abe to date because they now have correct guidance from the top.

The leader has spoken.

CCTV's "news heavy" 7 AM news slot has half an hour of reports on pressing international topics such as how US military aid to Ukraine is fueling the flames of the fire, and then at 7:34 there is a three-minute segment on the assassination of Shinzo Abe, his life and death.

Die beim Anschlag auf #Abe verwendete "Schusswaffe" war augenscheinlich im Prinzip eine simple Sprengvorrichtung,bei der zwei Ladungen nebeneinander platziert waren und durch die "Läufe" eine gewisse Führung für vorgeladene Splitter boten 1/x
Die vorgeladenen Splitter wirkten dabei ähnlich wie bei einer Richtmine,was dann auch die bestialische Verletzungswirkung trotz des offensichtlich geringen Gasdrucks erklärt

Alles,was man zur Herstellung solcher Höllengeräte braucht,findet man im nächsten Baumarkt 2/x
Solche improvisierten Waffen sind dann typisch für Kulturen mit umfangreichen Verboten:

Selbstgebaute Maschinenpistolen und Flinten sind bei Kleinwaffen die Regel,nicht die Ausnahme. Insbesondere aus China,der ehemaligen Sowjetunion und aus Afrika sind solche bekannt 3/x

In #Japan wird am Sonntag das Oberhaus gewählt. Bei einem Wahlkampfauftritt wurde vor wenigen Stunden der ehemalige Premier Shinzo #Abe angeschossen, soeben wurde sein Tod verkündet. /MS…
Der Tatverdächtige im Mord an Shinzo #Abe soll ein 41-jähriger ehemaliger Soldat sein. /MS…
Shinzo #Abe war ein harter Rechtsaußen und guter Freund von Donald #Trump und Boris #Johnson. Doch der Mord könnte auch Hintergründe im rechts-reaktionären Milieu haben. /MS

It's a shocking news!

#Abe is very popular & prominent politician in #Japan.

Indeed, gun violence is extremely rare incident in a country that has the world's strictest gun laws.

A couple of minutes after #Japan’s former PM #AbeShinzo was shot

People are screaming & crying.

Shocking & saddened by the #terror attack on former Prime Minister of #Japan #Shinzo #Abe at Nara .

Pray 🙏 #ShinzoAbe

PM #Modi’s body language with France’s President is very different. With other leaders he is seen passing jokes and hugging, but with Macron he shares a diff chemistry. The videos will show it more clearly! I have noticed the same vibe when he’s with #MBZ (UAE’s president).
Adding Netanyahu (Israel) and Abe (Japan) to the list. Its a lil diff with the current leaders of the same countries.
Go ahead rate PM Modi’s bonding with others. Rate them out of 10
2️⃣ Shinze Abe
5️⃣ MBZ (UAE’s president)
6️⃣MBS (Saudi Arabia’s crown Prince)
7️⃣ Justin Trudeau
8️⃣ Fumio Kishida
9️⃣ Naftali Bennett
10. Donal Trump, 11. Putin

I have been curious about the changes to ICU capacity capacity. The weekly data captured at……… now shows data through the week of 12/11. At first blush, the data doesn't appear to have changed much since the prior week. 1/n Image
2/n The aspect I am most curious about is the reporting of the data. An example of this is in reporting of ICU beds available and used. See below for one PA example: It is confusing to see the beds at this facility change during the weeks of 10/2 and 9/18 #covid #hospitals Image
3/n In contrast, note the reporting at this alternative #Pennsylvania hospital: While the average total #ICU beds increase slightly during the two most recent weeks, in contrast with the prior example, this hospital shows a percentage used < 100%. #LehighValley #ABE #Bethlehem Image

TRUMP “lost” elections, NETANYAHU’s govt “collapsed” last night, not difficult to guess who they r coming after next? #FarmersProtest ws created to target MODI ji. In Japan, #Abe hs already bn “discharged”. They will target #UK & #Australia next. @WarHorizon patience testing!!!
Early in the morning the 1st thing that flashed on my screen ws Netanyahu’s name. He gotta be careful. Around the world, leaders who believed in bringing abt a change r being taken down by hook or crook.
I prolly got it wrong. UK hs already bn targeted. New mutant B117 virus found its way into UK. In India they r causing internal agitations,borders will soon b on fire coz they knw Modi hs ppl’s support. Not having his frens lead other countries will mk things difficult 4 Modi ji.

Mein Take on #RCEP:

1. (& am wichtigsten): 🇨🇳 hat gezeigt, dass es in einem plurilateralen Abkommen anschlussfähig ist.

2. 🇮🇳 hat das Gegenteil bewiesen, was Indien zurückwirft und man #Modhi vorwerfen muss.

3. Der Abtritt #Abe|s machte wohl auch möglich, dass sich 🇰🇷 und 1/
🇯🇵 wieder an einem Tisch setzen können.

4. Ungeachtet politischer Spannungen vertiefen 🇦🇺 und 🇳🇿 ihre Wirtschaftsbeziehungen mit 🇨🇳

5. Das Abkommen ist zwar nicht so tiefgreifend wie aktuelle Abkommen von @Trade_EU (#CETA), ist aber darauf angelegt, weiterentwickelt zu /2
werden. Ansonsten würde man kein permanente Institution mit dem Sekretariat schaffen. Das wird aufgrund der dahinterstehenden ökonomischen Power die Normen- und Standardsetzung *weltweit* beeinflussen.

6. Die #US-Politik des America First ist krachend gescheitert: Der Rückzug 3/

#Japan #Abe news conference in progress.
"I have been able to serve for the past 8 years with my illness." in June checkup symptoms appeared again.
In politics there's nothing more important than delivering results. I have devoted my all to the job in the last 7 years and 8 months. #PM #Japan.
I have concluded I should no longer serve as the Prime Minister.
For this reason I am stepping down as the Prime Minister.

1/30 In two forthcoming pieces, I examine #Japan's response to the #COVID19 #coronavirus #pandemic. I'll summarize the main non-theoretical points here (long thread alert!).
2/30 #Japan’s figures have always looked good compared to many other countries, which initially led to suspicion that the ‘real’ numbers of #COVID19 #coronavirus infections & death were being played down.
3/30 #Tokyo Metropolitan Government at least has now released full #COVID19 figures, including general death rates, seeming to put this argument to rest (but these figures are also now being challenged).…

15. United States decided to label #IRGC terrorists. But who are the real terrorists? Who created, trained, armed & financed the worst terrorist groups in the world?

Wrong US policies in the Middle East. Sanctions against Iran. Sanctions used by the USA as a war weapon🤨👇🏼

Live from Japan right now! What the American media won’t tell you. President Trump’s visit to Japan is being well recieved and going very well. #Japan #Trump #Abe #Japan Meeting
President Trump for the first time in Japan’s history presented the President’s award to the grand champion sumo wrestler. Sumo is a scared national sport in Japan, daring hundreds of years. Japan made POTUS special slippers to wear when he stood on the dohyo which is the ring
This was well received by the Japanese people who love Trump. While walking out of the sumo arena, Japanese people were trying to get to him to shake his hand. He reached out and shook as many hands as he could. The Japanese people were ecstatic

A short thread on the background to @japantimes' new openly neo-imperialist position. In 2017, the paper was bought by the 'News2U' corporation - a shady PR company with no news background before it bought the Japan Times.… 1/4
News2U promised to keep JT's editorial independence, but Chairperson, Minako Suematsu, was recently appointed as a fellow of the Dentsu Institute… 2/4
The Dentsu Institute is the meda think-tank of massive PR / media firm, #Dentsu, “It is not like any company in the world... You are the customer, but they are the master."… Dentsu plays a key role in the return to a more right-wing Japan under #Abe 3/4
