Japan to Host First Asia CPAC Conference

CPAC, or the Conservative Political Action Conference, is going global. It was revealed recently that the annual conservative confab annually held in D.C. every winter — with occasional regional stops— is being held in Japan from December 16-17, 2017.

Per translations, the conference touts the following principles: “Freedom and the Rule of Law”; “Security and Technology”; “Economic Growth and Deregulation”; “Intellectual Property”; and “Family Values.”

The main reason for holding Japan CPAC? Their website expounds on this:

During the eight years in the Obama administration, the situation in Asia has changed dramatically. China actively acts to expand its military facilities in the South China Sea while at the same time North Korea continues to conduct nuclear development and missile tests for nuclear warhead loading. On the other hand, the United States has greatly reduced its influence in East Asia. 

In Japan, strategic acquisitions of corporate stocks, etc. related to natural resources such as real estate by China capital and underground water source are continuing. Also, in the United States, acquisitions related to businesses from companies controlled by the Chinese government, from American pop culture such as theaters and movie production companies to industrial equipment, home electronics manufacturers and hotels are continuing.

 China’s attempt to acquire a foothold in the US financial market through the acquisition of the Chicago Board of Trade by a state-owned investment company is currently being investigated by the Trump regime. These acquisitions are not merely capitalistic transactions, but rather that China is not part of a big attempt to gain economic and military benefits to enemies, including the United States and Japan Cow.
 
During the presidential election campaign last year, Donald J. Trump candidates took a tough stance toward China’s unfair trade practices and illegal territory expansion. Immediately after winning the election, he broke the Protocol decades ago and President Trump has received a telephone call from Tsai Inge of Taiwan.

ACU believes that Japan plays an important role as the foundation of stability in Asia, and strong aggressive economic power of Japan and the United States and appropriate defense capability, especially China’s aggressive attempt to dominate worldwide We believe that it is important to develop defense capability to counterbalance against the situation.

At J-CPAC 2017 hosted by the Executive Committee of J-CPAC 2017, J-CPAC 2017 sponsored by these two themes focuses on freedom and rule of law, security and technology, economic growth and deregulation, intellectual property, families Focusing on five topics, such as prosperity, discussions will be held.

If you’re curious to learn more about J-CPAC, follow them on Twitter and Facebook. Our CPAC will be held at the Gaylord Hotel and Resort in National Harbor, MD from February 21-24, 2017.

Could this coincide with President Trump’s visit to Japan and subsequent meetings with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe? Perhaps! This will be very interesting to and we at The Resurgent will keep tabs on this first non-American CPAC.

 

Trump’s First International Challenge Played Out In Front of His Mar-a-Lago Club Members

A little care should be taken when dealing with world affairs, I would think.

President Trump thought this past weekend would be a casual, relaxing time away, as he entertained the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida.
Instead, the first international test of his presidency may have come down the pike on Saturday evening, when North Korea launched an intermediate-range ballistic missile, causing a scramble to get the information to the president and his guest.

However, Trump’s immediate handling has some wondering if he really takes the gravity of these events to mind.

Sitting alongside Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, with whom he’d spent most of the day golfing, Trump took the call on a mobile phone at his table, which was set squarely in the middle of the private club’s dining area.

As Mar-a-Lago’s wealthy members looked on from their tables, and with a keyboard player crooning in the background, Trump and Abe’s evening meal quickly morphed into a strategy session, the decision-making on full view to fellow diners, who described it in detail to CNN.

Swanning through the club’s living room and main dining area alongside Abe, Trump was — as is now typical — swarmed with paying members, who now view dinner at the club as an opportunity for a few seconds of face time with the new President.

The launch of the Musudan-level missile happened just before 8am, by Japan’s time, and flew approximately 310 miles off of North Korea’s eastern coast, coming down in the Sea of Japan.

Even as a flurry of advisers and translators descended upon the table carrying papers and phones for their bosses to consult, dinner itself proceeded apace. Waiters cleared the wedge salads and brought along the main course as Trump and Abe continued consulting with aides.

There is a certain concern that is raised when critical world issues hit and the president doesn’t take the matter to a private room, out of the gawking, selfie-taking realm of bystanders.

Trump and Abe eventually moved their meeting to a ballroom, in order to properly address the press.

Abe called the launch “intolerable,” and urged North Korea to abide by the resolutions of the United Nations Security Council, which bars the nation from testing ballistic missiles.

Trump avoided the prepared remarks and simply stated that the United States would stand behind Japan, 100 percent.

After exiting the ballroom without taking questions, Trump chose to drop in on a wedding reception being held in Mar-a-Lago’s Grand Ballroom.

He posed with the bride and her bridesmaids, before grabbing a microphone.

“I saw them out on the lawn today,” Trump said of the bride and groom, who were standing nearby. “I said to the Prime Minister of Japan, I said, ‘C’mon Shinzo, let’s go over and say hello.’ “

“They’ve been members of this club for a long time,” Trump said of the newlyweds. “They’ve paid me a fortune.”

Maybe he was simply attempting to ease the tensions of the news that had just been delivered.

Maybe he is unsure of what his role should be, in these situations.

Trump is a showman, and there are times when that is an absolute asset.

It remains to be seen if this was one of those times.
