The machine gun used by the Boche and the British in World War I was a TWIN. The Vickers Brothers dropped the name Vickers-Maxim in 1906. The machine guns used by the Prussians was the Vickers-Maxim-Krupp because the Vickers company still owned the patents!

Hiram Maxim was born in Maine in 1840. He was the eldest son of Isaac and Harriot Maxim who had 6 children: Hiram, Lucy, Henry, Leander, Eliza, and Isaac.

When the Civil War broke out Henry and Leander volunteered but Hiram fled to Canada. Henry was later invalided out of the Union Army but Leander was killed in battle.

Hiram Maxim (18401916).

It is amazing that the man who is most associated with the world's deadliest killing machine fled to Canada to avoid conscription.

Hiram had a younger brother named Isaac who changed his name to Hudson.

They were the precursors of 2 more fake inventors named the Wright (Wrong) Brothers.

In 1867, Hiram married a woman named Louis Jane Budden and the couple had a son named Percy Hiram the following year. In 1878, he married Helen Leighton from Brooklyn and they had a daughter named Romaine.

In 1880, the deadly "inventor" married a third wife from Boston named Sarah Haynes. There was hell to pay when Sarah found out that he already had 2 wives and 3 children. It didn't do any good for him to explain to Sarah that he was a Mormon/Muslim and that he was allowed 5 wives.

his brother Hudson in London, June 1888

Because of his bigamy, Hiram fled the United States in 1881, and settled in London. His third wife Sarah Hayes accompanied him.

That was when his career as a fake "inventor" really commenced.

The Prince of Wales was ecstatic about the Maxim gun, and Queen Victoria "knighted" Maxim just before she died.

During the Boer War the Prince of Wales fired the gun and he saw it as a wonderful weapon to use against the Boers. Just before the ogress died she "knighted" Maxim because the machine gun was a major factor in finally winning the Boer War.

When Hiram arrived in London he was "adopted" by the 2 Vickers brothers Thomas and Albert. Vickers was founded in 1828 as a steel foundry by their father Edward Vickers (1804–1897). His factory was located in Sheffield on the River Don, in Brightside. The factory first manufactured church bells but then the Industrial Revolution greatly increased the demand for steel products

The company went public in 1867 as  Vickers, Sons & Company and rapidly expanded by branching out into various sectors such as railways and ships.

Thomas Vickers (1833–1915).

Steelmaking began in Sheffield and Sheffield Steel became famous worldwide.

Steelmaking was a closely guarded industrial secret, but the brothers shared their secrets with an upstart steelmaker from Essen named Friedrich Krupp.

After 1870, Friedrich Krupp became the largest steelmaker in the world.


Albert Vickers (1853–1906).

Friedrich Krupp was an army of one and he did not believe in corporations or shareholders. Krupp was a virtual state within a state and the main supplier of steel to Austria and the Prussian Junkers.

"Dead Head" Kaiser Wilhelm II.
Misruled from 1888 to 1918.

In May 1888, Maxim demonstrated the gun to the Crown Prince at the Spandau Arsenal in Berlin.

The future "Kaiser Bill" was ecstatic and declared "this is the gun—there is no other."

The following month he sent his pacific father Frederick III to "Purgatory."

Friedrich Krupp then signed a 20-year agreement with Vickers-Maxim.

Friedrich Krupp (18541902).

Friedrich Krupp committed suicide after a Berlin newspaper exposed his homosexuality. He had no male heirs to succeed him so his 16-year-old daughter Bertha inherited the vast Krupp industrial fiefdom.

Bertha Krupp (18861957).
Queen of Krupp from 1906 to 1945.

"Kaiser Bill" arranged for a marriage between Bertha Krupp and Gustav von Bohlen und Halbach.

The marriage took place in 1906 so Gustav became "king of Krupp" and Bertha became queen.

That marriage also cemented the "special relationship" between Vickers and Krupp as they both worked together to arm the Second Reich for the Great War!

After the defeat of the Second Reich, Vickers and Krupp continued to work closely together to arm the Third Reich.


Gustav von Bohlen und Halbach
King of Krupp from 1906 to 1945.

When World II ended, Gustav feigned illness so he never faced justice at Nuremberg. However, his son Alfreid received a lenient sentence of 12 years' imprisonment, but John J. McCloy secured his release after serving only 3 years. After his release it was back to business as usual for the Krupp industrial kingdom.

Field Marshal Kitchener demonstrated the killing power of the Vickers-Maxim machine gun!!

It takes a war to demonstrate the killing power of weapons, so the deadly Maxim was demonstrated at the Battle of Omdurman in 1898. Because the battle was a cakewalk, Field Marshal Kitchener believed that the Boers would also be a pushover.

Field Marshal Horatio Kitchener

Field Marshal Kitchener introduced the Maxim at the Battle of Omdurman.

The Grim Reaper cut the natives down like wheat before the scythe.

That was when he earned the sobriquet "Kitchener of Khartoum."

"Glory hound" Winston Churchill took part in a cavalry charge.


The Maxim was first used to deadly effect
at the Battle of Omdurman in 1898.

The charge of the 21st Lancers was the last cavalry charge by the British Army because the Maxim machine gun made such tactics obsolete!

the farmers with their Maxim machine gun.

The Boers were excellent shots with their rifles and they managed to hold the British Empire juggernaut at bay for 2 years and 7 months.

Unable to produce a quick victory, Kitchener of Khartoum was then called "Kitchener of Chaos."

Eventually, the Boers had to yield to overwhelming force.


The Boers were deadly marksmen
with their rifles.

"Kaiser Bill" was not slow to appreciate the killing power of the Grim Reaper . . . or the Devil's Paintbrush.

"Kaiser Bill" had 50,000 Vickers-Maxim-Krupp machine guns when the Great War began!!

The gold stolen from South Africa financed the Kaiser's vast military buildup. Without a doubt the Second Reich had the best equipped and best trained army in the world. It was indeed an unstoppable force.

Once the war became a stalemate on the Western Front, both sides dug in.

The French were quick to adopt their Hotchkiss machine gun which was no match for the Grim Reaper.

Artillery only drove the soldiers underground so the Boche resorted to poison gas in 1915.



Boche waiting for their prey.

Mustard gas was the most deadly form of chemical warfare because it caused permanent blindness. When it comes to combat a blind soldier is as useless as a dead soldier!

Boche with gas masks firing a
Vickers-Maxim-Krupp machine gun.

The name Vickers-Maxim was dropped in 1906 so the gun was called a Vickers machine gun.

Both machine guns used the exact same ammunition.

If the Boche needed a spare part or ammunition they could send a "courier" to the British trenches!

The entire world held its breath for the entire month of June 1918 because the defeat of the "Devil Dogs' meant that all nations would be trodden down by the British-Boche!

Belleau Wood was literally crawling with Vickers-Maxim-Krupp machine gun crews. Almost every tree concealed a machine gunner or sniper.

There was no way to clean out the machine gun nests except with a rifle and bayonet.

That was the specialty of the "Devil Dogs."

Boche machine gun nest.

No one knows who many machine guns were in Belleau Wood but they must have numbered in the hundreds.....The "Devil Dogs" suffered almost 2,000 killed and 8,000 wounded. German casualties numbered over 10,000 Huns sent to Hades.

The AEF arrived in France without any artillery, machine guns, or even rifles. They relied on the innovative French 75 mm artillery piece, and the Hotchkiss machine gun.

The French Hotchkiss machine gun
firing at the Boche.

The French had the excellent 75 mm field gun, but the Hotchkiss could not match the killing power of the Vickers-Maxim-Krupp machine gun.

The British never gave the Doughboys the Vickers gun because they would see its remarkable resemblance to the Boche machine gun!



The Doughboys relied exclusively on the
French Hotchkiss machine gun.

The French were always in the forefront of technological development. If they knew that war was coming they would have developed an airplane that could fly over Berlin and drop bombs on the Kaiser's palace! They did have the excellent, innovative 75 mm field gun, but their development of the machine gun lagged behind Vickers-Maxim-Krupp.

John "Moses" Browning was another fake "inventor" like the Maxim Brothers!!

2 technologies had their birth in the New Jerusalem: firearms and air flight. It is very easy to be an "inventor" if you have spies working in the Patent Office!

John "Moses" Browning was the son of Mormon/Muslim Jonathan Browning, who fathered 22 children with 3 wives....He was also a member of the British Mormon Battalion who tried to seize California before John Charles Frémont.

Samuel Colt (18141862).

Samuel Colt was the inventor of the 6-shooter, "the gun that won the West," and extended the borders of the New Jerusalem from sea to shining sea (Psalm 72:8).

All innovations in firearms originated with the Colt Company, but industrial spying was always a clear and present danger.

Just as he was about to introduce innovative firearms for the Union Army, he had a very untimely death.

After his untimely demise the company was never the same again!



John Browning (1855–1926).

Industrial spy John Browning worked closely with Belgium Fabrique National d'armee De Guerre (National Factory of Firearms for War).

John Browning visited Liege Belgium in 1896 with his "Browning" pistol....Belgium has been a vital part of the British Empire since the time of Queen Victoria.

Fabrique National d'armee De Guerre circa 1900.

The pistol used to assassinate the Archduke and his wife was a Browning FN 1910.

That is the event that most "scholars" claim triggered the Great War.

Pistols can change the course of world history. Mary Lincoln used a small Derringer pistol to kill her husband, and Jackie used a small Beretta pistol to kill Jack.


The Browning FN 1910 was used to kill the Archduke and his wife Sophie.

All during WWI the Belgium factory turned out Luger pistols for the Boche. The factory workers were also well fed by the Belgium Relief Commission headed by Herbert Hoover....Today, Colt is owned by a Czech company, and iconic American brands Browning and Winchester are owned by FN Herstal.

That is the reason why the National Rifle Association (founded 1870) is under constant attack and disarming the New Jerusalem is top priority for Gog and Magog.

The countdown to the end of time began in 1900

There were 3 major countdowns to eternity: 1517, 1870, and 1900. 1900 began with the Boer War, that was followed by the sinking of the Olympic. WWI following immediately afterward. Then there was the Great Depression which greatly facilitated the rise of Adolf Hitler. WWII ended with the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The creation of the Edomite soon followed WWII, and the deadly Cold War, which almost led to Armageddon several times.

Religious deception multiplied in 1949 when Billy Graham made his debut in Los Angeles. At the beginning, "Reverend" Graham called his meetings CAMPAIGNS, but a Catholic official ordered him to change the name to CRUSADES—after the Knights Templar Red Cross Crusades. Those Crusades were supposed to subjugate the entire world to Islam by the year 1260.

JEHOVAH gave the antediluvians 120 years to repent before he sent the Great Flood:

And JEHOVAH  said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years” (Genesis 6:3).

The Jewish Messiah also said:

And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:  They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all (Saint Luke 7:26-27).

Without a doubt the 20th century was INSANE....Wars, famines, pestilences proliferated, and religious deception was unprecedented.

The 20th century has also witnessed an explosion in human knowledge (Daniel 12:4).
