The Biblical name for China is Sinim (Isaiah 49:12) and the traditional name of that vast nation is the MIDDLE KINGDOM because the Emperors believed that China was located at the center of the flat earth, and heaven was directly above the palace of the "Son of Heaven." Chinese Emperors rejected the Jesuits' globes because a globe has no middle or center. The name China comes from the Qin dynasty and only goes back to the time of Alexander the Great. Alexander was determined to add Sinim to his empire . . . after he conquered India.

In 2010, Prime Minister David Cameron led a trade delegation to the Middle Kingdom, and, alarmingly, all of them were wearing POPPIES.

In November 2010, David Cameron led a trade delegation to China. All the members of the delegation were wearing POPPIES.

In China, the poppy is as notorious a symbol as the swastika in Europe.

It reminds the Chinese of the millions who perished in the Opium Wars.

In Britannia, the poppy is worn on Remembrance Day to honor those who died in WWI. If the Chinese premier had visited Britannia wearing a swastika, there would have been an uproar. If David Cameron had worn a swastika during his visit, it would have been OK, because the swastika is a REVERED symbol in Buddhism.

If David Cameron and his trade delegation had looked carefully they would have seen the handwriting on the wall for Buddhism and Communism in China.

now made in China.


In 2006, the London Taxi Company, maker of the iconic London Black Taxi, was acquired by Geely Automotive of China.

The taxi is now made in China and assembled in the U.K.

Unions are forbidden in Buddhist/Communist China and British workers should be horrified at the truly Dickensian conditions prevailing in that vast slave labor factory.

Geely Automotive HQ in Hangzhou,
Geely Automotive HQ in Hangzhou,

Here is a quote about that takeover from an automotive industry expert:

But Volvo was not Geely's first overseas transaction, In 2006, Geely took a 23 percent position in the UK based Manganese Bronze Holdings, becoming the company's largest single shareholder. Together the two companies formed a China-based joint venture to build the iconic London Black Taxi, which is now exported from China in the form of SKD's for assembly in the UK. (Anderson, Designated Drivers: How China Plans to Dominate the Global Auto Industry, p. 145).

There are no environmental concerns in China; no unions, no overtime, no workers compensation, no retirement plans, no vacations etc., etc. Everything is geared to manufacturing weapons of mass production.

Workers in Britain would immediately revolt if they had to endure the 19th century sweatshop conditions prevailing in the Chinese factories. Before the taxis leave the factory floor, a Buddhist priest sprinkles them with "blessed water." Riders have actually claimed to have seen visions of Buddha while traversing London!!

The 2 Opium Wars devastated China!!

Without contradiction it can be said that the British Empire was built on drug money. The British East India Company looked beyond India to the fabulously wealthy and populous country of China to expand their money-making monopoly.

After the British conquest of India, Warren Hastings became the first Governor-General of Bengal.

At that time Hastings realized the vast fortune to be made from selling opium to China.

India had the ideal climate for growing poppies.

In August 1793, the Irish-born Viscount Macartney arrived in China to demand that the Emperor open up more ports to East India Company trade:

Viscount Macartney traveled with a simple brief from George III's government: establish a British embassy in the capital and get permission for British ships to dock at ports besides Canton, the only harbor then open to foreigners. Trade with China was booming and lucrative, but it had become bottlenecked in overcrowded Canton. The British were so eager to open up China, Macartney had instructions to offer an end to the importation of opium there from British-controlled India, which was officially illegal in China but difficult to stop both because of enthusiastic customers of the drug and the riches that the trade generated. (Hanes and Sanello, Opium Wars, p. 14).

Lord Macartney was the forerunner of Lord Kitchener, and the only trade Macartney had in mind was OPIUM. Macartney was an employee of the private East India Company, the counterpart of the New World's Hudson Bay Company.

In 1793, Lord Macartney arrived in China on a special mission from the East India Company.

He was to establish an embassy in Peking and demand that China open up other ports beside Canton to East India Company trade.

Soon, millions of Chinese were hooked on opium, and fabulous profits flowed into the East India Company coffers in London.

The man who tried to stem the tide of drugs into his country was named Lin Zexu. His forceful opposition to the opium trade was a primary catalyst for the First Opium War.

Lin Zexu (1785–1850) was a valiant opponent of the drug trade.
Lin Zexu (1785–1850) was a valiant opponent of the drug trade.

Commissioner Lin Zexu was a Chinese government official who led the fight against opium.

He is also remembered for a famous letter to Queen Victoria castigating her for allowing a drug that was banned in Britain to be exported to his country.

Devout Buddhist Lin rebuked the so-called "Christian queen" for poisoning his country with drugs.

Despite all the work of Lin Zexu, the Chinese were no match for the modern weapons of the East India Company. Casualties on the British side were small but millions of Chinese died from the effects of opium. Because of the drug trade, the Chinese refered to the British as "Foreign Devils," and all foreigners became suspect.

The first 2 British "missionaries" to China were spies for the East India Company!! 

The first "missionary" to reach China after the beginning of the blessed Reformation was a Jesuit named Matteo Ricci. The Chinese Emperor at that time was named Zhu Yijun, and the name of his reign was Wanli, meaning "ten thousand calendars."

The Wanli Emperor (1563–1620).
Reigned from 1572–1620.


When Matteo Ricci showed the Emperor his globe he was HORRIFIED.

It didn't show the Middle Kingdom at the center of the world.

To avoid expulsion, Ricci had to produce a new map that showed China in the middle.

The Jesuits had to wait until balloons and rockets were invented before they could convince the Chinese that they lived on a globe!!

globe and map.

The Jesuits had very little success in China and they never would acknowledge that the Middle Kingdom was not situated at the center of the flat earth. Furthermore, Chinese Emperors believed that all other nations were small and insignificant compared to China.

The British invasion that commenced in 1793 was designed to force the Chinese to abandon that worldview.

In 1807, Robert Morrison sailed from London to New York. There he boarded a U.S. ship bound for Portuguese Macao. The East India Company did not give him passage on their ship because his role as a spy would be too obvious.

In 1807, under the auspices of the "London Missionary Society," Robert Morrison set sail for China.

In actuality, he was a spy for the East India Company, and the spearhead for the conquest of China.

The "bible" he translated into Chinese was the corrupt Latin Vulgate Version.

Notice the globe in the foreground!!

Morrison's translation was actually financed by the East India Company. The corrupt Latin Vulgate is the "do penance" Bible. The Buddhist monks were already doing penance since 67 AD.

Morrison also tried to introduce the Chinese to the globe. Morrison had no more succes with that than the Jesuits as the Emperor looked upon it as a children's toy.

Another deadly "missionary" for the East India Company was a Prussian named Karl Friedrich August Gützlaff. The Prussians have always been mercenaries for the British going back to the time of Frederick the Great British Spy.

"Missionary" Karl


Prussian "missionary" Karl Gützlaff sailed to China on a ship owned by Scottish drug dealers Jardine and Matheson.

As he was selling opium to the Chinese, he was also distributing BIBLES and Christian tracts!!

Without controversy it can be said that the British Empire was built on "drug money."

Karl Gützlaff in native
Chinese dress.

Here is a quote about that sordid Bible-distributing drug dealer from a British historian named Christopher Hibbert:

In China he had soon established a reputation for himself as an assiduous distributor of Bibles, pamphlets and mendicaments to the natives, as a linguist of uncommon skill, fluent in Cantonese and other dialects, and as an excellent interpreter aboard the East India Company ship, Lord Amherst, which in defiance of the Chinese Government's rule forbidding entry to any ports other than Canton, had sailed under a false name up the coast to see what market there might be for goods other than opium (Hibbert, The Dragon Wakes: China and the West 17931911, p. 88).

Thanks to spies like Morrison and Gützlaff, the task of evengelizing China with real Christianty was indeed "mission impossible."

Thanks to the Opium Wars, the China Inland Mission was "mission impossible"

Saint Hudson Taylor was a genuine Christian and not a spy like Robert Morrison. Hudson had a genuine Damascus Road Experience, and he was the Apostle Paul of China. Like the Apostle Paul, he believed that there was no second chance after death. He was moved with compassion for the teeming millions of China and made the evangelization of that great nation his life's work.

A doctor by profession, he could have earned a good living at home, but he sacrificed everything to pull some Chinese out of the deadly embrace of the Dragon.

Saint Hudson Taylor (1832–1905).

Circa 1865.

Saint Hudson Taylor was the Apostle Paul of China and the founder of the China Inland Mission.

He identified completely with the Chinese and adopted their dress and manners.

His mission was made impossible by the fact that the Chinese identified Christianity with drugs and British imperialism.


Saint Hudson Taylor circa 1885.

Saint Hudson had to cope with a lack of finances, ill health, a sick wife and children, and the customs, manners, and language of a strange country. All of his support came from a small group of Christians in Britain. Under the most ideal circumstances, his mission would have been overwhelming, but the hostile attitude of the Chinese to the British made it "mission impossible."

The Dragon was relentless in his opposition to the China Inland Mission, as he looked upon China as his exclusive territory, and he was loath for even one Chinese to escape his fiery grip.

Despite enduring every kind of hardship, Saint Hudson Taylor planted the good seed of the Gospel, which has endured to this present day.

The Chinese are coming, the Chinese are coming!!

In 1910, a British Secret Service agent named William Le Queux began writing a series of sensational novels about an imminent German invasion of the United Kingdom.

William le Queux (1864 - 1927).
William Le Queux (1864–1927).

William Le Queux (pronounced "Q") was a bestselling propaganda writer.

His propaganda created a German scare and led to the formation of MI5 and MI6.

What Le Queux failed to mention was that "Kaiser Bill" was a grandson of Queen Victoria.


A war with Germany did follow in 1914, but that war went terribly wrong for Winston Churchill, when Tsar Nicholas II threatened Berlin, and the Kaiser had to pull troops out of France. Britain had to join the war in France and Remembrance Day is all about honoring the hundreds of thousands who were killed by Churchill's blunder.

Incredibly, a Chinese threat was created about the same time by 2 British Secret Service agents named Arthur Sarsfield Ward and Rose Elizabeth Knox. Arthur's mother claimed descent from the Irish general Patrick Sarsfield who fought to restore "warming pan plot " King James II to the throne.

In 1908, a semi-literate Irishman named Arthur Sarsfield Ward applied to join the British Secret Service.

As a condition of his employment as a spy, he was ordered to marry another agent named Rose Elizabeth Knox.

Ward married Elizabeth in 1909; changed his name to "Sax Rohmer," while "owl eyes" Elizabeth published all her Dr. Fu Manchu novels under that name.

The first novel of this marriage of convenience appeared in 1913. It was entitled The Mystery of Dr. Fu Manchu. At that time in Britain, if Elizabeth used her own name, alarm bells would have been ringing because many Britons still believed in witchcraft.

"The Yellow Peril" was born in 1913 when Elizabeth wrote her first novel about the "Chinese threat."

Rose Elizabeth was a powerful witch and prolific writer.

Her creation, "Dr. Fu Manchu," was an evil villain determined to conquer the world and kill all the white people.

The books were also immensely popular in the United States. British controlled Hollywood soon jumped on the bandwagon. In 1932, The Mask of Dr. Fu Manchu was turned into a Hollywood movie starring "Dr. Frankenstein" Boris Karloff. In one scene in the movie, Dr. Fu Manchu uses a TESLA coil to test the genuineness of the sword.

In the Mask of Dr. Fu Manchu, the "evil Chinese doctor" is determined to obtain the sword of Genghis Khan so he can conquer the world and kill all the white people.

He is foiled in his attempt by British Secret Service agent Denis Nayland Smith.

Even though the movie was grossly insulting to Chinese people, it was a financial success for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

During its initial release, The Mask of Dr. Fu Manchu was criticized by the Chinese government, and the Chinese embassy in Washington launched a formal complaint against the film for its hostile depiction of the Chinese. The speech where Dr. Fu Manchu tells his followers to "Kill the white man and take his women!" was singled out for strong criticism.

Ian Fleming based his Bond villains on Dr. Fu Manchu!!

Ian Fleming was born the very same year that Arthur Sarsfield Ward began working for the British Secret Service. While at Eton, Fleming discovered "Sax Rohmer" and his reading material never reached higher than the trashy novels. As a matter of fact, he was a DUNCE at Eton and had to drop out.

His elder brother Peter was the real brains of the family and he wrote an historical account of the 1904 British invasion of Tibet entitled Bayonets to Lhasa: Francis Younghusband and the British Invasion of Tibet. It seems that Peter was the real author of the novels with a lot of input from his younger brother Ian.

Author Ian Fleming

Ian Fleming was enthralled by the Sax Rohmer novels.

His James Bond character was based on Denis Nayland Smith, and the evil villains were all based on Dr. Fu Manchu.

The most Chinese of his villains was Dr. No, which was published in 1958.

In 1962, Dr. No was made into a Hollywood movie by United Artists.

Here is a quote from an authorized biography of Fleming:

After the dangerous experiment of trying something new in From Russia With Love Fleming seems to have made up his mind that he would play Dr. No very safe indeed. That autumn, in fact, the formula for James Bond was finally established. From now on, quite consciously, as he told Al Hart, Fleming would write the same book over and over again with only the settings changing; from now on it was the best-seller stakes and an abandonment of Raymond Chandler's belief in him as a writer capable of higher things. Whereas From Russia With Love had been planned as a realistic documentary novel, Dr. No was to be a nostalgic thriller modeled on those stories of Sax Rohmer which had made such an impression on Fleming when he was at Eton. (Pearson: The Life of Ian Fleming, p. 260).

Merlin Minshall was another inspiration for James Bond. It seems that Minshall was a low level operative for the British Secret Service. Such a person–like Greville Wynne in Russiais considered a useful idiot or fall guy who takes all the blame when something goes wrong.

Merlin Minshall (19061987).

Merlin Minshall was a low level British Secret Service agent who did not know that Adolf Hitler was Queen Victoria's grandson.

He genuinely believed that his country was at war with Nazi Germany.

In 1939, Merlin presented Fleming with a plan to deny the Nazis access to the Romanian oil fields by sinking barges at strategic points along the Danube River.



Merlin barely escaped alive
from Operation Dunube.

Fleming was a gung-ho British Fascist, so before the operation got under way, he notified Admiral Canaristhe head of German Naval Intelligence. The operation was a disaster and Minshall barely escaped from being captured and shot as a spy.

Fleming's James Bond was a cynical man of the world who always bedded his heroines after he had rescued them from the evil villains. "Licensed to Kill" Bond always carried his gun inside a hollow copy of the Holy Bible. Little did Fleming realize that his hero Sax Rohmer was actually a female.

The Middle Kingdom plans to dominate the world economy by 2021!!

If you think the "Yellow Peril" is just a bad nightmare from a Sax Rohmer novel . . . think again.... It is a concrete reality. 2021 is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Buddhist/Communist Party and they are determined to replace the U.S. as the world's dominant economic power on or before that date::

Here is a quote from a Chinese official about their "two one-hundred-year" struggles:

In order to promote the nation's governance system and modernize governance capacity, achieve the targets of the "two one-hundred year" struggles: the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party; and completing China's development as a strong, democratic, civilized, harmonious modern socialist state by 2049, the 100th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese people and the Chinese Dream . . . it is necessary to persevere in having the party manage the party strictly, and to deepen the struggle for clean government and anti-corruption. (Kroeber, China's Economy: What Everyone Needs to Know, p. 296).

The "Chinese Dream" will indeed be the worst nightmare that the world ever experienced. Worse by far than the Dark Ages.

China will be helped in achieving her goals by Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, the British Empire, the Vatican, the Pentagon, the World Trade Organization, the World Bank, the Bank for International Settlements, GATT, Walmart, Goldman Sachs, Wall St. etc., etc.

The only thing that can slow down the juggernaut that is Buddhist/Communist China is true Christianity as preached by Saint Hudson Taylor. When the Buddhist Chinese realize that there is no Nirvana or second chance after death, they will flee to Christ to deliver them from Satan's lake of fire and brimstone. Saint Paul said:

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many" (Hebrews (9:27).
