Lydia Hutchinson (2011): Paul McCartney: Nine Days In a Tokyo Jail

Paul McCartney: Nine Days In a Tokyo Jail

 | January 16, 2011 |
 











On Jan. 16, 1980, Paul McCartney and his wife Linda arrived at Tokyo International Airport for a week-long Japanese tour with Wings. But the tour ended before it began when a customs officer rummaging through their carry-on luggage lifted out a fist-sized bag of marijuana.
“When the fellow pulled it out of the suitcase, he looked more embarrassed than me,” McCartney recalled. “I think he just wanted to put it back in and forget the whole thing, you know, but there it was.
“I didn’t try to hide it. I had just come from America and still had the American attitude that marijuana isn’t that bad. I didn’t realize just how strict the Japanese attitude is.”
A senior customs official ordered McCartney detained and radioed the Narcotics Control Bureau.
“It’s all a mistake,” McCartney protested, as the NCB agents handcuffed him. He was taken to the Drug Supervisory Center for interrogation. Within 11 hours, the Wings tour was canceled and McCartney found himself squeezed into a 4-by-8 cell in a Tokyo prison.
He was soon visited by the British vice-consul, who told the former Beatle that the sentence could be up to eight years.
“My first night was the worst,” McCartney said. “I couldn’t sleep. I was frightened about the possibility of not seeing my family for years.”
Prior to his arrest in Tokyo, Macca had been busted three times. In 1972, he paid a $2,000 fine for smuggling hashish into Sweden. The same year, he was fined for pot possession in Scotland, and in 1973, he was fined again for growing cannabis on his Scottish highlands farm. The story goes that before the Japanese tour, Paul was made to sign an affidavit stating that he no longer smoked dope, as a condition for receiving his visa. When the pot was found, Japanese authorities felt that they’d “lost face” and had no choice but to arrest him.
While behind bars, Inmate #22—as Paul was known—impressed the guards with his politeness. He wasn’t allowed a guitar or writing implement, so he passed his time by exercising and talking to other prisoners. Paul later said that overall, he was treated very well, except for the morning interrogations.
“I made a confession on the night I was arrested and apologized for breaking Japanese law, but they still wanted to know everything. I had to go through my whole life story—school, father’s name, income, even my medal from the Queen.”
On the sixth day, Linda was allowed to visit. She brought him a cheese sandwich, a change of clothes and a few sci-fi paperbacks. By day eight, the situation had eased and the authorities decided that Paul had suffered enough. Released the following day, he was taken directly to the airport. As a gesture to the many disappointed Japanese fans, Paul grabbed an acoustic guitar in the departure lounge and improvised a quick tune for the television cameras.
In the 2000 TV special Wingspan, McCartney reflected to his daughter Mary, “I don’t know what possessed me to just stick this bloody great bag of grass in my suitcase. Thinking back on it, it almost makes me shudder.”
Since returning to Japan for a tour in 1990, McCartney has performed in the country several times without further incident.
There are two noteworthy footnotes to this tale, the first one tragic. A few days into Paul’s jail stay, a 29-year-old man named Kenneth Lambert turned up at a Miami Airport reservation counter and demanded a ticket to fly to Japan to “free Paul.” He had no money or identification. An argument ensued, with Lambert pulling a realistic-looking toy gun from his pocket. A policeman on the scene shot the young man dead.
The second has to do with John Lennon’s reaction to his former partner’s imprisonment. According to a housekeeper who worked for him at the Dakota, upon hearing the news John supposedly said, “If he really needs weed, surely there’s enough people who can carry it for him. You’re a Beatle, boy, a Beatle. Your face is in every damn corner of the planet. How could you have been so stupid?”

Stephen Francis: Trump, the Russian mafia and 9/11





One of the main efforts to pursue by this editor is the quest to find connections between 9/11 and modern political events in the context of keeping its investigation alive and relevant. The 9/11 Truth movement is now approaching its sixteenth anniversary and unfortunately seems to be going the way of the JFK assassination route, that being endless ruminations challenging the establishment's deliberate coverups but little or actually no progress in getting a new independent inquiry.

And, another area of inquiry could be added to this mix, that being Cultural Marxism. This is not an implausible stretch in that the unexpected election of Donald Trump to the POTUS was in part successful because of his attacks on Political Correctness which is an integral component of Cultural Marxism. The way to connect them is through adding it to the seemingly endless stream of psyops perpetrated on the citizens of the world. Depending on the time frame chosen they can stretch back to the beginning of the 20th century or even the late 19th century.

They are Machiavellian / Hegelian lies by a Neocon / Jewish Zionist / philo-Semitic elite concocted to control the world's population of which they have been very successful. To name a few of the major instances, these hoaxes include the purposely calculated disaster of the Treaty of Versailles, Nuremberg trials, Pearl Harbor, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, JFK assassination, 9/11 and more recently a string of relatively minor psyops including Columbine, Sandy Hook, Boston Marathon and ISIS. Much more could be added to this list. 


There has been anticipation by many of the supporters of Donald Trump that because he seems to not be a puppet of the elite that some progress could be made in exposing these hoaxes for what they are, but as his administration's actions unfold, that hope is being dashed. Trump seems to have abandoned the Alt Right, no longer talks about PC and has unfortunately caved-in to much of the elite's agenda. Whether this is by his choice or a product of blackmail is an open to question.

The most recent hoax has been an effort by the defeated Democrats in the 2016 election to establish a conspiracy theory that Clinton lost because of Russian intervention in the election. It is not gaining sufficient traction for a number of reasons, but the main one is that there's just no substantial evidence and even if there were, it's just not possible for this to occur.


So how does this relate to keeping 9/11 Truth alive? The answer to this question is Russia and specifically Trump's dealings with the Russian Jewish mafia over the last few decades. There is ample evidence that they helped support his real estate empire. This has been covered by the MSM (see USAToday), but is not in the mainstream conversation. By the MSM starting to focus on Russia/election influence as a relevant component of US politics, it opens up into a rich history of that countries' criminal underbelly that unfolded with the breakup and looting by Jewish oligarchs of the Soviet Union. It has been said by credible sources that every major Russian mafia figure has an Israeli passport.

It is an assumption by many 9/11 Truthers that the WTC twin towers were brought down by mini-nukes, specifically, modified W-54s that were sourced from the Pantex nuclear facility in the late 1980s and that there were 350 missing. There are other related nuclear theories, but this one seems to be the most prevalent. It is just speculation that is not backed up by any substantial evidence but enjoys a plausible consensus.

It has circumstantial links to a number of corroborating details that lend to its believability including the case of CIA contractor Roland Carnaby who was killed by Houston police officers in a car chase incident. He was known to have been carrying a briefcase that contained information on nuclear materials being moved through the Houston ship channel on Zim American cargo vessels. Zim American (Israeli company) mysteriously vacated its offices in the WTC just two weeks before 9/11. The CIA erected a memorial garden in his honor.

Within this W-54/Pantex theory is the accusation that the Bush 43 administration, or rather Cheney, spread these nukes throughout the world in backdoor negotiations for a plethora of machinations of the Neocon/Zionist agenda. Again, this is just speculation, but ties-in to all the facets (including most importantly, nuclear proliferation) of the issue called Plamegate which contains info on the outing of the CIA agent Valerie Plame, her work for Brewster Jennings, Sibel Edmonds, Marc Grossman, Scooter Libby.
  

To relate this to 9/11 Truth requires going back a number of issues including the Russian Jewish mafia, Cheney, Libby and Marc Rich, the (now deceased) international arms smuggler (among other crimes) who was appallingly but predictably pardoned by Bill Clinton. 

Marc Rich had significant ties to the Russian mafia (Operation Spiderweb) and Viktor Bout (international arms smuggler, WSJ). The speculation is that it is possible that a number of those Pantex nukes may have fallen into the hands of the Russian mafia and could possibly be related to the 9/11 WTC nukes. Wayne Madsen makes this link. Of course, there would be no paper trail to this and would require an international investigation by credible independent agencies, which does not exist. The question arises would the Russian mafia have the expertise to modify the nukes and many other related issues? The point here is that 9/11 was an inside job that was run by Zionists and that the predominately Jewish nature of the Russian mafia makes it a credible target in any investigation of 9/11.



Now enter Donald Trump and his dealings with the Russian Jewish mafia. The story first lands at the feet of Roy Cohn (Jewish) as a mentor of Trump in the 1970-80s.  There is a mound of evidence surrounding the Trump / Cohn relationship that is undeniable and significant. Just for starters on his background, he was J. Edgar Hoover's alleged lover, his father was close to the infamous Dulles brothers, he was Joe McCarthy's right-hand man, he set up the Rosenbergs as fall guys in the 1950s nuclear spy ring...etc.. but most significantly, he was a Kosher Nostra kingpin in New York's Brighton Beach. He created Donald Trump, the businessman.

Cohn aided Roger Stone in Ronald Reagan's presidential campaign in 1979-80 (Wikipedia). According to the Aangirfan website, Cohn was tied to the Omaha pederast ring (Franklin Scandal) and involved in a New York City sex-ring run out of one of Trump's Manhattan hotels, giving credence to all the stories surrounding Trump's modern dalliances with Jeffrey Epstein. 

To tie Trump to the Russian mafia, refer to Felix Sater, a senior advisor to the Trump campaign.  In 1998, (Wikipedia) Sater plead guilty to stock racketeering and fraud as part of a US and Russian mafia-connected $40 million stock pump and dump scheme. He worked with the CIA and FBI, offering information on a black market for Stinger missiles. Sater went on to become the managing director and later COO of Tevfik Arif's Bayrock Group that managed Trump's Soho project.

Indeed, according to WayneMadsonReports, Arif was arrested in Turkey for running a prostitution ring. A marker for money laundering investigations is the cash purchases of high-end condos. Trump's organization is rife with this, where a significant number of questionable characters live in Trump's real estate ventures.

And it gets juicier. Felix Sater's father was a crime boss for Semion Mogilevich (Jewish), the world's most notorious Russian mafia gangster according to the FBI. It is said that Mogilevich owns the Hungarian military. He is so powerful that he lives freely in Moscow because he is basically untouchable. In the context of 9/11, Wayne Madsen reports that Mogilevich is linked to the Marc Rich-Benex-Bank of New York money-laundering scandal and that some of those funds were likely used to fund part of the 9/11 attacks. Again, Marc Rich was a close associate of Scooter Libby, thus Dick Cheney, who was a kingpin for Israel in the nuclear demolition of the WTC. From Mogilevich to Sater to Trump to 9/11 is not an unreasonable stretch, but too far ahead of itself in terms of modern political discourse.  

Interestingly, after all this investigation, this editor still would rather see Trump in the oval office than Hillary Clinton. Again, we are faced with a choice of lesser evils.

The original inspiration for this article was to surmise that Trump could use graymail as a defense in saving his presidency from the widespread attacks by Democrats. In other words, the MSM media will not pursue stories about Trump's Russia connections because it exposes the Jewish nature of the Russian mafia. Whether or not this could extend to 9/11 is probably far-fetched but an interesting idea.

It is more likely that Israel did possess and modify the W-54s (if this is true), kept them close and managed their implementation without the use of the Russian mafia, but the Cheney / Libby / Marc Rich / Viktor Bout connections could hold some important clues.
