For @oneangryshot​ and Femslash February: the Bonnie and Clyde AU no one asked for.

They meet at a rundown diner on a rundown road in a rundown side of town. Capable’s a waitress with bags under her eyes and Angharad’s just been released from prison.

The whole room reeked of cigarettes. Just the way he left it. Why though? The only person who should have been anywhere near his apartment was Issak. Matt didn’t have time to worry about his sons bad habits right now. Having just been released from prison, he was ready to kick back and relax without some guard breathing down his neck. 

 “Daddy’s home.” Matt says quietly, grinning to himself. He drops his things in the hall, making his way to the kitchen to search for a bottle of liquor, confident he had quite the stockpile before his most recent arrest. 

Upon entering the kitchen, Matt stopped in his tracks. A fifteen year old boy was already there, digging through the fridge. He must not have heard the door. “Issak. Whats up kid?” Matt, always a tactless man, leaned back against the counter, addressing his son as if he hadn’t been locked up in a penitentiary for the past six months. 

 Not that he’d know how to express his love properly if his life depended on it.

Greetings

Hello People. I told you I knew how to use a computer, didn’t I? Well, I decided to make a blog. I was just released from prison and returned to Hazakura Temple. Have anything to ask me?

((Hey Guys, it’s the Mod. jsyk, this is NOT my normal blog. If you want to find my head blog, you want to go here. So, ask me on either one, but you might not get a direct response from Iris right away. I have to manage two of them, so it’s more difficult.))

Parkes + MacDonald Option ‘If All Roads Were Blind’ Novel By ‘Gotham’ & ‘Mentalist’ Producer Jordan Harper

EXCLUSIVE: With several upcoming releases on the 2016 calendar, the husband/wife producing duo of Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald have just brought in another project to their production shingle. They just optioned the first novel of Jordan Harper, who is the producer of Gotham and The Mentalist. In a pre-emptive strike and financed by their four-year partnership with ImageNation Abu Dhabi, the producers picked up If All Roads Were Blind which tells the intense, at times violent  (and ultimately heartbreaking) story of Nate McClusky and his relationship with his estranged young daughter, Polly.

Just days from getting released from Soledad State Prison, the protagonist (Nate) runs afoul of the powerful leader of the Aryan Brotherhood, who runs its state-wide Meth network from his cell. Marked for death his release, Nate soon realizes that everyone he has ever loved is a target — including his daughter, who he hasn’t seen for years. Soon the two of them find themselves on a non-stop struggle for survival, and along the way, discover the bonds that eluded them for so many years.

Parkes and MacDonald will produce and Evan Hayes will exec produce the property. The book will be published this July by Ecco/Harper Collins. Harper will adapt his novel for the screen.

“Jordan’s novel somehow manages to operate as a beautifully crafted piece of popular fiction and an E-ticket ride to a world which is equal parts terrifying yet strangely alluring — while revealing itself to be, at its core, a deeply-felt meditation on paternal love,” said Parkes.

Parkes and MacDonald, who were the first presidents of Dream Works SKG motion picture studio and have always been prolific producers who work in both TV and film. Their 2015 slate included NBC’s critically acclaimed The Slap and the NBC pilot Warrior. Upcoming productions include James Ponsoldt’s The Circle, the live action Barbie film for Sony, Ring for Paramount Pictures and Keeping Up with the Joneses for Fox.

The first film from the Image Nation Abu Dhabi partnership was He Named Me Malala about the Taliban’s attack on Pakistani schoolgirl, Malala Yousafzai. The young girl came back from the brink of death after being shot repeatedly on a school bus (targeted by her would-be assassin) and continues to speak up for a female’s right to education. At 17, she became the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Moon's special relationship with the Japanese.

From a variety of sources, including church archives, we get a clearer picture of Moon’s peculiar relationship with the Japanese. It’s not what we have been led to believe either. Frank F

http://www.tparents.org/Moon-Books/SunMyungMoon-Life/SunMyungMoon-Life-24.htm

In 1956, just after being released from Seodaemun Prison, I went to stay at the Gabsa Buddhist temple, where I did research. I thought to myself, from now, Japan will become important…With that in mind…I prepared to make a connection with Japan and to secretly send someone there.

That the Soviet Union and Communist China were supporting North Korea under Kim Il-sung’s rule was certain. In order to break through in the work to save South Korea, I felt we had to make inroads into Japan.

During a visit to the same temple in 1958, I called a young man, Bong-choon Choi, and told him, “You must smuggle yourself into Japan”…I met him on the mountain behind the temple and instructed him to go to Japan as a missionary…He stowed away on a trader’s boat bound for Japan… I knew entering Japan was illegal

I borrowed 1.5 million won to send Bong-choon Choi to Japan 

I told Bong-choon Choi, “If you are put in prison, you must escape for three days or a week and bring three people to join us!” The Unification Church of Japan began from those words. I can’t forget the time I called Choi to the mountain behind a Buddhist temple in South Chungcheong Province

as soon as he went to Japan, he was arrested…. On the way to Shimonoseki, he tried to jump off the train, but because the train was going too fast and there were many tunnels, he could not. At Shimonoseki, he was put into a repatriation center. He was waiting to be deported. If he had been sent back, all that we had planned would have collapsed.

A week from being deported, he thought of a way out. He began to fast. He fasted for a week, ten days, and continued further, eating only salt. As a result, he became sick with a fever, and he was taken to a hospital. While in the hospital, where security was lighter, he escaped.

Thus, in 1958, we began pioneer missionary work, in Japan. In those days, Korea was governed by the Liberal Party, which strongly opposed normalizing diplomatic relations with Japan. Nevertheless, under those circumstances, we educated the Unification Church members for the long term.

Even amid the most serious persecution, my prayers and concern were not directed toward Korea. I did my very best to send missionaries to Japan and to the U.S

They tried to finish me off during the Liberal Party administration, under which I was incarcerated in Seodaemun Prison. Yet I could avail myself of their help when I sent missionaries to America. After I was released from prison, I persuaded the cabinet members who had opposed me to issue passports for our missionaries.

When I fight in the free world, the democratic world, or with the U.S., I do not fight unfairly or deceitfully. I fight openly and squarely. I fight openly.

In doing my global work, I do not do it based on my own thinking as I go along. I prepare for several years in advance, according to plan.

God has directed that our members be trained very strictly this year 1958.

***SPECIAL NOTES ON PAPA SAN CHOI***

He was born in 1925 as Choi Sang-ik. At the age of two he had moved to Japan with his family, returning to Korea when they were forced to repatriate in 1945. His father gave him the name Bong-choon when he was in his twenties. He realized the significance of the name only after joining our church in April 1957 and thereafter adopted it. During his missionary days in Japan, he went by the Japanese name Masaru Nishigawa.

Mr. Choi had already wanted to become a missionary to Japan. Father spoke with him at length at the temple, one purpose being to check that Mr. Choi had the requisite level of faith.

Mutual hostility contributed to Korea and Japan not restoring diplomatic relations until December 1965. In 1958, severe travel restrictions existed between the two countries. Talks recommenced in December that year only after Japan dropped its long-standing claim to about 80 percent of all property in Korea and its claim that Korea was the beneficiary from 1910-1945. Antiquities had been spirited away from Korea. Japan called this archeology; Korea called it theft. Any concessions on Japan’s part led to riots in Tokyo. Even in 1965, in both countries, riots and histrionic statements by politicians preceded the ratification votes.

Choi left from the Port of Busan, July 15, 1958; he was denied permission to come ashore at Fukuoka on July 17 and taken into custody by a police ship two days later. Before, during and after his trial, he was imprisoned at Hiroshima. On October 14, he was sentenced to six months in prison. On November 14, Choi was relocated to Yamaguchi Prison. On February 18, 1959, Choi was transferred to Shimonoseki, at the western extremity of Yamaguchi Prefecture, 215 watery kilometers from Busan. – Source: History of the Unification Movement in Japan: Rev. and Mrs. Sun Myung Moon and the Developments of the Unification Church and Unification Movement in Japan Compiled by Rekishihensan 2000, Published by Kogensha. http://www.tparents.org/Library/Unification/Talks2/Kang/Kang-130700.htm Sun Ae Kang -  Japan Testimony - 1960 - 61 She graduated from Ehwa College in 1937…She had married and had children when she joined our church without her husband in 1958…I lived under the shadow of my father’s double life…On the days that I walked back home in the same direction as my three closest friends, who lived in the same family environment as I did, we would say to each other, “Let us all go to Mt. Kumgang and become Buddhist nuns. After graduating from the girl’s high school, I hoped to study in Japan but could not do so because my father became ill. I ended up going to Ehwa College instead…I developed a close relationship with the missionaries… I felt myself being unconsciously attracted to them…teacher Maria Pak (the wife of Mr. Ki Bong Lee) separately taught me…Soon after, I was instructed to take a new post at Ehwa Kindergarten…I had to take extra care of the children since they all had come from the wealthiest and best-known families in Seoul. Marrying into a family running a first-class business, money became the enemy. The discord between my brothers-in-law and my husband’s promiscuous life tortured me…At the age of forty-three…Though it was the first time I had met Father, he looked familiar to me…That was on January 29, 1957…Later, I went to meet Yun Bodhisattva…"You listened to the Unification Principle through teacher Eu. You were able to join the Unification Church…You will not suffer even in the Unification Church and will only ride in cars…I was quite surprised to find King Moon… within the Buddhist scriptures that Yun Bodhisattva was holding. Two months after I joined the church…I dreamt of Father standing in front of a podium in the National Assembly Building…I sat in one of the parliamentarian’s seats and noticed that the wife of a former Minister of Justice and Won Gyu Kim, the wife of a former superintendent of schools, were sitting my husband completely refused to understand me. The situation worsened to the point that he threatened to kill me. I was so terrified that I could no longer live with him. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to go to Japan when it reached this point. On May 29, 1960, I left home at five in the morning and greeted Father before leaving…Father said…When you get there, you must first witness to your family and establish pioneering churches in four places. Please help missionary Bong Chuns Choi who went to Japan as a stowaway two years ago.” I could go to Japan because my oldest son and a relative lived there…My nephew’s wife, her four-year-old son and I departed for Busan. We waited in Busan for a week before we received a telegram concerning our trip…we got on a small fishing boat disguised as an excursion boat and took off for Japan. Those waiting for the boat totaled fifty-three, and we were told to all squash inside the fish storage area…they took us to an island, told us that we would be picked up the next day, and left…That night… a Japanese patrol boat…an investigator from the patrol boat disembarked, he seemed surprised to see us. We were dragged to a police station, interrogated and sent to jail to await our trial. We were then tried, sentenced and sent to prison. On the second day of my incarceration, my son paid me a visit…My son was also a stowaway and was not supposed to be going around other provinces. Knowing what I was thinking, my son told me, “Mother, I registered the day before yesterday.”…The head of the prison himself seemed confused. He was quite taken aback because it was the first that he had heard of this, since registration had not been authorized…My son filled out documents at the Immigration Bureau, through which he guaranteed that he would first go to Tokyo two days later to register as a student, take me on a sightseeing tour and send me back home at his own expense. After filling out the needed documents, a lawyer submitted them…I was released from prison with three years’ probation. Once I went to Tokyo, I got an apartment and lived there with Bong Chun Choi,who was our missionary in Japan, and two single sisters. Members increased by the day. However, Missionary Choi had not told the members that the Principle had come from Korea. When the opportunity arose later, he confessed the truth to them…As for me, I wrote down the revelations I had received until then and I sent them with the Divine Principle to the Japanese emperor. After printing three hundred copies of the Divine Principle, I could no longer extend my stay and had to return to Korea. I arrived in Korea just after the 5.16 Revolution.“…Additionally, during the party’s peak days, I had been the head of Democratic Party Wives Association.” I knew that a detective would certainly be waiting for me to arrive at Gimpo Airport. I was immediately taken to the Korean National Police, Public Order Division, where I stayed up the whole night sitting in a chair. The next morning, while being interrogated, a certain person came to me and said, “I am in a tight position and cannot help you much, but I’ll move you to the Yongsan Police Station. Go there and explain your situation well.” Soon after, I was transferred to Yongsan Police Station. One cell there accommodated around fifteen prisoners and every single one of them was an opium addict. The next day, that same person came again and spoke with the commissioned officer. Once he had gone, I was treated completely differently and was released within three days. http://truelove.org/ucbooks/TWorld/1991-TW/91-09.pdf

One day I was walking along the sidewalk of Osaka station when I heard someone street-preaching. It was a small lady speaking about the end of the world. It was late in the spring of 1962. The woman spoke with an apocalyptic fanaticism. I picked up a flyer and was impressed. I could not visit the church, however, until the beginning of the summer as I had responsibilities to the deaf children. When I finally did visit the lady (Mrs. Hasegawa), she was very surprised but happy to receive me. She did everything she could, but told me that I would have to wait for the teacher’s return to hear a lecture. Soon a Korean lady in her fifties entered and smiled at me even more than the first lady. As soon as the Korean lady sat down, she asked if I could listen to her lecture.

At the Mabashi Center, I met many people: Mr. Sawaura from Chuou University; also Mr. Komiyama, a young charismatic philosophical aspirant who came from Rishokosekai and introduced the Unification Church to Mr. Osami Kuboki…He (Komiyama) then proceeded to raise his arms and preach. His voice was tremendously loud. Later we were to find out from a visitor that Mr. Komiyama’s preaching was not understandable. The visitor came to us saying that Mr. Komiyama’s preachings were so desperate sounding that he wanted to know what Mr. Komiyama had been talking about. Apparently, the visitor didn’t understand a word of his speech.

In the summer to fall of 1962, a connection was made between the Unification Church and the Rishokosekai, an Abel-type Buddhist denomination whose membership went well over 1.5 million. Nichirenshyoshu was a Cain-type denomination.

Mr. Komiyama, who had been witnessed to by Mr. Sawaura, had invited a Mr. Osami Kuboki, the secretary to the president of Rishokosekai, Nikkyo Niwano.Mr. Kuboki was considered one of the “hopefuls” as he was thought to be the next to inherit Mr. Niwanos position. When Mr. Kuboki visited our attic center, arrangements were made for Mr. Choi to meet President Niwano. This took place in September of 1962.The situation urged Mr. Choi to prepare a substantial external foundation for the movement.

In the summer of 1962, another important event occurred: The wealthy Hirafuku family joined and donated their property for the construction of a church building to be used as a training center and church headquarters.

news was brought that two new members, physical sisters, had received a revelation from God to donate all the money they possessed which was approximately $100,000. In a couple of days more news came. A member who had heard of the sisters’ donation decided to donate all of his money: $100,000.Together, that made exactly $200,000. Mr. Choi called the company and paid them in cash. The company could hardly believe we had acquired the money: they changed their attitude completely. The construction was accomplished smoothly and quickly. The building was named the Rittai Cultural Center.

Mr. Kuboki…He began working as a mediator between Mr. Choi, President Niwano and his denomination.

Rev. Sudo - Page 12

President Niwano of Rishokosekai was a very open-minded leader. He founded the movement of 1.5 million members from scratch. Although he was a prominent Buddhist leader, he invited our charismatic Christian leader, Mr. Choi, to introduce the Unification Movement to his 150 leaders. Furthermore, he decided to send the youth leaders of Rishokosekai to be educated under this new Christian training. Forty youth leaders were chosen from all over the nation (mainly the Kanto/Tokyo area). They arrived at the Koseikai Headquarters with Buddhist sutras, etc. They came by bus to the Rittai Cultural Center.

As soon as they reached the facilities, they were given new “uniforms." They weren’t allowed any contact with the outside as they had been asked to focus solely on the lectures for seven days…The future of the movement depended upon these training sessions…The next day I found that two young brothers had shaved their heads like the penitent Buddhist monks.

All forty of the group joined the Unification Church and dedicated their lives to the new cause. Among them were many future influential leaders: Mr. Onuki (Diakan), Mr. Ishii, Ms. Oyamada, Mr. Yokoi, Mrs. Nada, Ms. Kajikuri and Mr. Hoshino.

Mr. Choi called for two kick-off conventions: one for the Unification Church, and the other for all members, including those who came from the Rishokosekai. President Niwano attended the second convention entitled "The Convention of the World Youth." It was held at the headquarters of the Rishokosekai. On July 3rd, he was welcomed with fanatic applause by two or three hundred enthusiastic young people who were a mixture of the original Unification Church members and the newly-joined converts from the Rishokosekai.

I don’t know if he had made a connection with Mr. Sasagawa (a powerful right-wing multi-millionaire businessman, head of the Motorboat Association of Japan) prior to that time. But by the 11th of June, 1963, just one week after the convention, we began the training session in the motorboat race-camp building that could accommodate more than one hundred trainees. Actually, we watched the motorboat racing of the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games from the roof of the building. This Toda Training Center was where I worked as a lecturer until the end of my mission in training. (During this period, most of the present Japanese church leaders and members came through these training sessions and decided to join full time. This extensive list included Mr. Oyamada,Mr. Kamiyama, Mr. Furuta, Mr. Sakurai, Mr. Kajikuri, Mr. Ohta and a little later, Dr. Shirnmyo and Dr. Masuda.)

The training session at Toda Center continued until July, 1965. We finished the twenty-sixth training there, counting the forty-day session at Rittai Cultural Center as the first one. We had the twenty- seventh and the twenty-eighth training sessions at Maebashi Church and the twenty-ninth and thirtieth at Okurayama Training Center. I finished the first-stage education mission in March, 1966.

Father’s second visit (came) in 1967 (when he had the Cabal with Sasakawa and Kodama’s lieutenant)

A few leaders of this group inquired about the Divine Principles and have now accepted them. Last month these summoned 150 district leaders…and officially requested Mr. Nishikawa the leader of our group to teach and train the Buddhist members

After a 40 day training in the Tokyo Center, leaders of the Buddhist group have been reforming within their own organization. They organized a world youth group and commissioned Mr. Nishikawa to commence leadership training. A Political College president…offered a large building in Odahara Beach for the purpose of a training center…many applicants from the Buddhist group had to take a test for the selection of the applicants.

Recently Mr. Takahashi, now 60 years old, a famous religious leader in Japan with Shinto background, has been born as a new member of our group…Mr. Takahashi is a tutor of the Japanese Royal Family. Nishikawa had a two day conference with Takahashi in an exclusive hotel for the royal family….introduced him to the Emperor’s only uncle and opened a way for Mr. Nishikawa to enter the Emperor’s palace…The group in Japan now has the funds for establishment of the new world in Japan. As a unified group consisting of Buddhists, Shintoists and the Divine Principles, they are planning for the world mission.

http://www.isgp.nl/American_Security_Council#j On December 24, 1948, in a "Christmas amnesty”, MacArthur released 17 Class A war criminal suspects. Among those released were Nobusuke Kishi, a future prime minister of Japan…Yoshio Kodama and Ryochi Sasakawa, who both came to dominate the yakuza and the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan, the dominant party for over 50 years after World War II; Admiral Sankichi Takahashi, Shumei Okawa and Yoshihisa Kuzu. the notorious Black Dragon Society. With their branch of Shintoism, called State Shintoism or Tennoism, the Black Dragons provided the ideological basis for Japanese fascism. the Black Dragon Society…Admiral Sankichi Takahashi was said to be a member…A photograph later surfaced of a Black Dragon Society meeting with Yoshio Kodama the Black Dragons provided the ideological basis for Japanese fascism.  In Tennoism absolute loyalty is demanded to the emperor, as he is considered the physical incarnation of the Sun God Amaterasu. The Black Dragon Society spread this ideology through a plethora of youth groups and other less influential secret societies. They combined this with the idea that all of Asia, if not the entire world, should be made subservient to their Sun God. A photograph later surfaced of a Black Dragon Society meeting with Yoshio Kodama Basically all Japanese prime ministers in the post-war era can be shown to have been close to Kodama, Sasakawa or the leading…In other cases there are curious ties to the Rockefeller group  Kodama and his friend Sasakawa, it seems clear that they were recruited by MacArthur and Willoughby. In an April 1950 letter from Kodama to MacArthur the former was asking for approval to send “me and my numerous trusted friends to South Korea immediately as members of your troops in order to cooperate with your men on the field.”, signing off with “I remain your obedient servant.”…CIA reports from 1952, and published in 2007, give additional confirmation that Kodama and some of his associates had been recruited by Army G-2 in order to help the United States fight communism.  After MacArthur’s September 1950 daring amphibious landing on Inchon and conquest of North Korea, his forces were responsible for the liberation of Reverent Sun Myung Moon, who had been imprisoned in a brutal labor camp for having set up his own personality cult. In the decades thereafter the Moonie Cult, in which he served as the messiah, was backed by the Korean CIA http://www.8bitmode.com/rogerdog/lobster/lobster21.pdf Page 16 the real key to the WACL-Moon link probably lies in Japan, and I must therefore trace the development of the Japanese UC before trying to clarify this link. The founder of the Japanese branch of Moon’s church was Sang-Ik Choi, who spent much of his youth living in Osaka, Japan. At the end of World War II he and his family were forced to return to Korea, and, since he had studied English in Japan, he obtained a job interpreting for the occupying American forces. His father had earlier become a devotee of Tenri-kyo, a Japanese New Religion, and after a short anti-religious phase Sang-Ik Choi converted to Christianity and ended up joining the T'ong-Il Kyo in April 1957. After doing some missionary work for Moon in Korea, he was sent to Japan to start a UC branch in June of 1958. His early efforts met with virtually no success; when he officially founded the church (known in Japan as the Genri Undo) on 10 August 1959, he was its only actual member. (http://culteducation.com/group/1004-japanese-sects/11008-10-years-after-aum-sarin-attacks-pseudo-religions-thriving-in-japan.html…10 years after Aum sarin attacks, pseudo-religions thriving in Japan…Japan’s horrified public demonstrated against Aum and pushed for controls on religious groups…The largest are Soka Gakkai, Rissho Koseikai and Tenrikyo). 

Finally, after years of frustration he managed to ‘convert’ fifty leaders of the ultranationalist Nichiren Buddhist sect, Riossho Kosei Kai (Establishment of Righteousness Rebirth Association) in late 1962, and with their help the Genri Undo began to grow…some of the vast funds raised by its members were transfered to the U.S. and used by the American UC in its pro-South Korea 'influence’ operations.

Once again, we observe a course of development similar to that which occurred in South Korea. Prior to late 1962, the Genri Undo was impoverished, extremely small, and struggling for its existence. Less than four years later, it had become powerful, highly-organised and well financed. How can one account for this transformation? Although the data doesn’t permit us to clarify all of the details, it would appear that 'friends in high places’ again played a role in this turnabout, as they did in Korea after the 1961 coup. In the Japanese context, however, such support would certainly not have been granted publicity by government officials, but garnered covertly through the machinations of the so-called kuromaku or 'black curtains’, a term borrowed from the traditional Kabuki theatre that is nowadays used to designate 'conspiratorial political bosses’ who broker power behind the scenes via a combination of intimidation, bribery, blackmail, brute force, and nemawashi ('binding the roots’), a time consuming, conflict-reducing process of negotiation.  kuromaku…the term most often applies to those men on the right – usually the extreme right - - who serve as a bridge between the yakuza-rightist underworld and the legitimate world of business and mainstream politics’. Our first hint of kuromaku involvement in the development of the UC in Japan is that it was none other than Osami (a.k.a. Henri) Kuboki, an aide to Rissho Kosei Kai president Nikkyo Niwano, and Kaichi Komiyama, the chief of the organisation’s Religion Department, whose 'interest’ in the fledgling Genri Undo (GU) led to the crucial 1962 'conversion’ of the fifty sect leaders to Unificationism.  In addition to occupying an influential position within the Rissho Kosei Kai, Kuboki was apparently a 'yakuza lieutenant’ of Yoshio Kodama, one of the two most powerful kuromaku in postwar Japan.The other was Ryoichi Sasagama, who also took an early interest in the GU and thence became its unofficial 'advisor’ and the 'legal guarantor’ of its founder, Sang-Ik Choi, during the latter's immigration trial in 1963-4. After Choi’s expulsion from Japan, Kuboki and Komiyama took over the leadership of the GU, the former becoming president of the Sekain Kinsutokyo Toitsu Shinsei Kyokai (World Christian Unification Holy Ghost Church) in 1963, the latter establishing its student group, the Zenkoku Daigaku Genri Kenkyu Kai (All Japan Universities Basic Principle Study Association) in 1964. To grasp the significance of these events, it is necessary to sketch the background of Kodama and Sasagawa.

Military Intelligence (G-2) Section of GHQ headed by rightist sympathizer and fanatical anti-communist, Major-General Charles A. Willoughby…actively recruited ultra-nationalists (including wartime police and intelligence officials) and yakuza thugs as informants, strikebreakers, and covert operators. It is now generally acknowledged that both Kodama and Sasagawa cut deals with Willoughby’s G-2 and/or other hardline groups within (and perhaps also outside of) the Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers (SCAP) bureaucracy.

Immediately upon his release in December of 1948, Kodama seems to have been recruited by American intelligence. Although he performed a variety of covert tasks for his employers, including gathering intelligence abroad and maritime smuggling, his main function was to serve as an intermediary between GHQ and the ultranationalist-yakuza underworld and to help mobilize the latter for espionage and strongarm operations at the behest of the former (or their conservative Japanese political allies).

Kodama has often brought decisive pressure to bear on the factional struggles within the LDP (Liberal Democratic Party), including arranging for the reelection of Nobusuke Kishi, another Sugamo cellmate, in 1959

Perhaps more importantly, Kodama helped to found two major rightist-gangster umbrella organisations…he became more actively involved with Seishikai…Seishikai incorporated a least twenty member organisations, including Machii’s Tosei Kai, and it promoted both 'theoretical education’ and paramilitary training, ostensibly in preparation for a communist coup attempt.  In line with this new emphasis on ideological preparation, Kodama also established the Nihon Seinen Koza (Japan Youth Seminar) in April 1967, an organisation to which Osami Kuboki later became an 'advisor’. 

In July of 1967, about one month before WACL was formally established, Sasagawa hosted the gathering of a 'secret cabal’ consisting of himself, Moon, and two Kodama underlings – Shirai Tamao, secretary of the aforementioned Nihon Seinen Koza, and Kuboki, at that time both an advisor to the same organisation and head of Moon’s GU. According to Scott and Jon Lee Anderson, 'the purpose of the meeting was to create in Japan a Korean-style anti-communist movement that could operate under the umbrella of the World Anti-Communist League and that would further Moon’s global crusade and lend the Japanese yakuza leaders a respectable new facade’. it is my guess that it was actually Kim (Jong-Pil) who, after making contact with Kodama (and presumably also Sasagawa), explained that he was reorganizing and planning to use Moon’s church in Korea to cover and and help finance various anti-communist political activities initiated by the KCIA, and then suggested that the kuromaku provide similar backing for the struggling UC branch in Japan, the GU. This would not only account for the 'conversion’ of the Rissho Kosei Kai members orchestrated by Kodama’s man Kuboki, but also for the rapid subsequent elaboration of the GU’s organisational structure and training procedures; and it is entirely consistent with what is known about the later development of the links between the Japanese UC and WACL.

the official Japanese chapter of WACL…within a couple of years it had set up twenty-one branches all over Japan which together had a purported membership of 60,000.  Its leading officers included Kuboki (president), Sasagawa ('honourary president’) and Kodama ('chief advisor’), and its lower level personnel have from the outset been drawn primarily from the ranks of GU-affiliated organisations like the Genri Kenkyu Kai of Komiyama.

in 1970 the Shokyo Rengo, in its capacity as the Japanese branch of WACL, hosted the massive Fourth WACL/Sixteenth APACL Conference in Tokyo, which Sasagawa helped to fund and which was addressed by several prominent Japanese politicians, including Kishi and Sato; and it has remained very active in the affairs of APACL and WACL to this day, as the participation of Kuboko and/or other Shokyo Rengo leaders at virtually every important subsequent gathering of the two organisations indicates. http://www.tparents.org/Library/Unification/Talks4/Kishi/Kishi-700811.htm August 11, 1970 - Former Japanese Premier Mr. Nobusuke Kishi spoke at Japanese HSA-UWC Headquarters http://www.tparents.org/Library/Unification/Talks1/Kuboki/Kuboki-700920.htm 4th WACL Conference opens in Japan - Osami Kuboki - September 15 – 20, 1970 For raising the fund, all members of International Federation for Victory Over Communism in Japan started campaign in the street and they succeeded in getting signatures of 200,000 people contributing 200 yen each for conference and Mr. Ryoichi Sasakawa, advisor of J-IFVC made a contribution of 20.000.000 yen for the conference.

Spent Millions to Support Japanese Right in 50’s and 60’s The C.I.A. gave money to the Liberal Democratic Party and its members in the 1950’s and the 1960’s, to gather intelligence on Japan, make the country a bulwark against Communism in Asia and undermine the Japanese left, said retired intelligence officials and former diplomats…A newly declassified C.I.A. history also discusses covert support sent that year. Some State Department and C.I.A. officials say the Kennedy-era documents should stay secret forever, for fear they might…embarrass the United States.  The American occupation forces freed accused war criminals like Nobusuke Kishi, later Japan’s Prime Minister. Some of the rehabilitated politicians had close contacts with organized crime groups, known as yakuza. So did Yoshio Kodama, a political fixer and later a major C.I.A. contact in Japan who worked behind the scenes to finance the conservatives. On July 29, 1958, Douglas MacArthur 2d, the general’s nephew, who was then United States Ambassador in Tokyo, wrote to the State Department that Eisaku Sato, the Finance Minister, had asked the United States Embassy for money. Mr. Sato was Prime Minister of Japan from 1964 to 1972 and received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1974.  Ambassador MacArthur wrote that such requests from the Government of Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi were nothing new. “Eisaku Sato, Kishi’s brother, has tried to put the bite on us for financial help in fighting Communism,” his letter said. “This did not come as a surprise to us, since he suggested the same general idea last year."  Mr. Sato was worried, an accompanying memo explained, because a secret slush fund established by Japanese companies to aid the L.D.P. was drained…a decision to finance the 1958 election campaign was discussed and approved by senior national security officials, according to recently declassified C.I.A. documents and former intelligence officers.  http://www.isgp.nl/2010_04_New_beyond_dutroux_1001_link#european-institute-of-management long-time ambassador Douglas MacArthur II, a nephew of the famous general and by this time a very close friend and business associate of Sun Myung Moon Chairman of EIM was the former American ambassador in Brussels, Douglas MacArthur II, the son of the famous general from the second world war.

http://www.voltairenet.org/article30068.html The American secret services knew about the Golden Lily operation since 1945.  under the command of MacArthur until the enigmatic Edward Landsale, former-agent of the OSS, who had recently joined the G-2 services of general Willoughby, took command of the operations. they decided that the recovered booty would be used to raise money to create a fund against communism, known as Black Eagle…With the help of Robert Anderson, a money laundering specialist…The banking network of the CIA allowed therefore to hide again the fortune (Golden Lilly) stolen from Southeast Asia and to keep the gold prices at a convenient level for the economic interests of the United States. The most strategic fund was certainly the M-Fund dedicated to the financing of the fight to prevent communists or social democrats from taking over power in Japan… That was the way in which Yoshio Kodama published his memoirs “I was defeated”. The book, financed by the CIA with the M-Fund, was good to exonerate the future Japanese strong men, ultranationalist supported by general MacArthur, such as Ryoichi Sasakawa and Nobusuke Kishi. The peace treaty is signed in 1951. Article 14 provided that Japan didn’t have the necessary resources to indemnify its victims. The existence of the Golden Lily, which turned into the Black Eagle, had to remain a secret. http://www.nytimes.com/1987/06/16/us/from-treasruy-secretary-to-guilt-in-a-fraud.html?pagewanted=all Robert B.

Following accusations by a cult monitoring group in the United States, the institute admitted last week that it was funded by the Moonie organisation. Also on the standing committee of the institute is the president of the Moonie church, Dr Mose Durst, who is listed as a senior director of the institute.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Dragon_Society The Black Dragon Society, or Amur River Society, was a prominent paramilitary, ultranationalist right-wing group in Japan… its membership included Cabinet Ministers and high-ranking military officers as well as professional secret agents…The Society published a journal, and operated an espionage training school, from which it dispatched agents to gather intelligence on Russian activities in Russia, Manchuria, Korea and China…The Black Dragons also formed close contact and even alliances with Buddhist sects throughout Asia. http://www.okinawan-shorinryu.com/okinawa/yakuza.html The Yakuza evolved into their current form late in the 19th-century under figures like Toyama Mitsuru. This son of a Samurai founded the Genyosha (Dark Ocean) Society, and later Toyama’s top aide Ryohei Uchida founded the Amur River Society (Black Dragons). Like organized crime in other cultures, the Yakuza began to control construction labor and dockside labor, adding to traditional areas of enterprise in the vices, prostitution, gambling, liquor distribution, and entertainment. In the late 1960s or early 1970s the Yakuza moved into the lucrative narcotics trade and in recent years have stepped up their trade in firearms and other contraband. When Japan began to industrialize, the yakuza followed Japan’s deploying society. They began to recruit employees within the construction business and people working at the docksides. They began to check the rickshawbusiness.  http://visupview.blogspot.com/2013/09/secret-societies-narcoterrorism.html Kodama and Chiang Kai-shek were effectively the two largest drug lords in Eastern Asia for decades – From roughly the 1930s until the mid-1970s, specifically. Kodama, especially with the access he had to revenues generated both by his opium trade as well as his black market gold, had phenomenal amounts of money at their disposal. When Kodama became involved with the World Anti-Communist League in the late 1960s, it was through a curious individual: the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, founder of the Unification Church. Kodama’s former patron, Ryoichi Sasakawa, was seemingly the architect of this partnership.  "In July 1967, Sasakawa arranged a secret cabal at a building he owned on a lake in Yamanashi Prefecture. Among those attending were Reverend Moon, Shirai Tameo, and Osami Kuboki. Tameo was an underworld lieutenant of Yoshio Kodama, and secretary of the innocently named Japan Youth Lectures, an organization that indoctrinated and trained young members of the yakuza gangs. Kuboki was secretary-general of Japan’s Genri Undo; he also served as an advisor and lecturer to Kodama’s Youth Lectures. "The purpose of the meeting was to create in Japan a Korean-style anti-communist movement that could operate under the umbrella of the World Anti-Communist League and that would further Moon’s global crusade and lend the Japanese yakuza leaders a respectable new façade. Shokyo Rengo, or 'Victory Over Communism,’ was born. Ryoichi Sasakawa was made overall chairman of Shokyo Rengo, and Yoshio Kodama was its chief advisor. "In April 1968, Shokyo Rengo was chosen as the official Japanese chapter of the League. While theoretically unaffiliated with the Unification Church, virtually its entire membership came from Moonie ranks or the yakuza minions of Kodama and Sasakawa.”
Dear Sister Iris,

Hey, congratulations on your release from prison!  I have just a few things I’d like to know:

1. What would you say you’ve learned during your time in prison, if anything?

2. What are your plans for yourself now that you’re free – will you return to Hazakura Temple, or do you have something else in mind?

3. Finally, do you think you’ll ever visit your relatives in Kurain Village?  I’m sure they’d love to see you again.

Thank you, and keep being yourself!  Your real self, that is.  ; )

Sincerely,

NobodyUKnow

P. S. I’m…I’m such a big fan.  Just thought you should know.  X )


Dear NobodyUKnow,

Thank you for the congratulating. I’ll answer these to the best of my abilities.

1: I learned that Phoenix is very impressive in his catching of criminals. I met a couple of people he had incarcerated. Someone called ‘Furio Tigre’ and another called ‘Dee Vasquez’ both told me that Phoenix had proven their guilt. Very impressive work I must say.

2: I have already returned to Hazakura Temple. It has been my home for almost my whole life after all. I could think of nowhere else I could live and be as happy. Although I do venture out into the city every once and a while.

3: I have visited a few of them, but not many. When they look at me, they don’t see… me. They see my sister. They’re slowly getting used to it, but I believe that they won’t stop seeing her anytime soon.

And… Your a huge fan… of me? …

T-Thank you! That’s… very nice of you to say!

-Iris

New prisoner reintegration service to get under way

Corrections Minister Anne Tolley says a new reintegration service to help steer just-released prisoners away from a return to crime will begin this month.

Five providers have been selected to operate the $10 million “Out of Gate” service, funded over two years by the Justice Sector Fund in Budget 2013.

The post-release service will support prisoners before, and immediately after they leave prison, when they are trying to readjust to life on the outside and are most at risk of reoffending.

Dedicated providers will support up to 4000 prisoners, serving sentences of less than two years, to settle back into the community by helping them access employment, accommodation, education and training, and social services.

“We don’t want to see offenders creating more victims and ending up back in our prisons, costing the taxpayer even more money,” says Mrs Tolley.

“They are being provided with access to education, training, and drug and alcohol rehabilitation while inside the wire, and we want them to go on to make a positive contribution to society.

"This new reintegration service will ensure that offenders are given every opportunity to turn their lives around rather than slip back into their bad old ways.

"Corrections has reduced reoffending by 11 per cent, as it aims for our goal of a 25 per cent reduction by 2017, and this new programme can make an important contribution towards that.”

Five providers have been contracted to provide the service at specific prison sites. They are:

- Presbyterian Support Northern: Auckland Region Women’s Corrections Facility, Arohata Prison, Christchurch Women’s Prison.

- Goodwood Park Healthcare Group: Waikeria Prison, Tongariro/Rangipo Prison.

- CareNZ: Christchurch Men’s Prison, Rolleston Prison, Otago Corrections Facility, Invercargill Prison.

- Healthcare of New Zealand Ltd: Whanganui Prison, Hawke’s Bay Prison, Manawatu Prison, Rimutaka Prison.

- National Urban Maori Authority (NUMA): Northland Region Corrections Facility, Auckland Prison, Mount Eden Corrections Facility, Spring Hill Corrections Facility.
