Opium Wars-Communist China as Drug Dealers

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 21, 2013

In China they like to play the pity card and talk about the opium wars. Sure the Chinese got their butts handed to them and lost, but they should have manned up and won. Each Chinese you see will be able to pity card it and tell you about how they were forced to become addicts but fail to realize how the communists in China sold opium just as the English did. As a matter of fact, when the KMT was fighting off the Japanese, the communists were hiding in the hills and selling dope.

This ‘skill’ soon became their bread and butter and leading source of income. In 1950, communist China exported 3500 tons of opium, which pales in comparison to the 7000 tons they exported in 1960. This 1960 figure was ten times more than the world-wide need for opium and double the amount Great Britain ever shipped to China. At that time 65% of all the world’s illicit drugs came from communist China and the trend continues today.

Now instead of just selling the world opium, they sell precursors for everything from X to meth. S the next time some Chinese dud starts complaining about the opium wars, tell them to suck a nut.

Protesting the Chinese in Canada

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 21, 2013

The King is doing his part….

From The King

China and Canada signed the FIPA, granting the big stinky to stink up Canada for 31 years. However, Native reserves (remenants of their old home world (which I as a concerned citizen am trying to preserve, volunteering and doing good deeds. to get Canada back on track with human development), these natives weren’t consulted, as most of the resources still lay in what’s left of their homeworld. There’s nothing wrong with resource gathering, but at least we try to minimize damage, and donate to eco volunteers who slowly regrow the country back, (just like in Ancient Japan, when they grew back ancient forests, and only take what is necessary) which is why google maps indicate that Japan is like a huge sea of dark green (the darker it is on the map (like TAR BLACK), is actually a really thick forest.

Where as China is dried up meno pause tits pale.. Everywhere is a desert, brown poop grey-beige (deserfication), (Even some parts of Canada is losing it’s green (not a good sign). Like we need resources because God put on this planet to really suffer and feel the pain. (the whole eden thing), So aborginals lived nomatically, and or if they settled down, then they tried to live in harmory with the eco system.

The problem with FIPA besides being in league with parasitical Chinese businesses( poisonous stocks, poisonous everything), is that the Chinese have no regard for nature, human rights, and even worker safety. Like how many Canadian workers are going to be seriously maimed or shafted when some business takes the money, and changes their name as they move to Geneva or other places of beauty? Taiwan, still greedy Chinese, but not as bad, there are laws (although very very corrupt laws) relatively improvement, as is with Hong Kong…… corrupt and rotten, BUT more humane and civilized… nature compartively flourishes here. (It’s against the law to litter, and well shit in the streets).

Stupidity and Renouncing One’s Citizenship

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 21, 2013

File this under ‘how dumb is this jackass going to look if China erupts in revolooshon and his struggling body is dragged through the streets ala the 1966 cultural revolution’…


Some in Hong Kong’s financial community were surprised by an e-mail from one of the most veteran investment bankers in the city on Tuesday night. Marshall Nicholson, a managing director in charge of investment banking in Hong Kong for China International Capital Corporation (CICC) told his colleagues and friends that he had officially renounced his United States citizenship and would soon receive a HKSAR passport.

“I am very proud to say I have become Chinese,” said Nicholson in the e-mail, which was seen by the South China Morning Post and spread quickly in the local banking world on Tuesday night.

Nicholson, whose wife is a Hongkonger, first came to the city about 11 years ago from the US where he was an investment banker with some legendary Wall Street firms including JP Morgan and Merrill Lynch.

Chinese Threaten French on French Soil Over Dali Lama Story

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 21, 2013

The Chinese are insane at times and this story proves it. Some country needs to stand up to them and kick them in the zipper….


Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the way Chinese diplomatic personnel have harassed and threatened French journalist Cyril Payen, a reporter for the French TV news station France 24, since the station broadcast his documentary “Seven days in Tibet” on 30 May.

A few days after it was broadcast, Chinese embassy personnel went to the TV channel’s headquarters in Paris to demand the documentary’s withdrawal from its website. The Chinese embassy in Bangkok then threatened him by telephone after he arrived in Thailand.

“Such unacceptable behaviour might be expected from the mafia but not from senior diplomats,” Reporters Without Borders said.

“It is acceptable for an embassy to express its disagreement with a report. But it is completely unacceptable for diplomats stationed in France and Thailand to try to intimidate a news outlet into modifying editorial content, to harangue a journalist and to summon him with the intention of interrogating him.

“Such methods are undoubtedly normal in China, and that is regrettable, but they have no place in a free country. The telephone threats that these diplomats made against a French journalist expose them to the possibility of judicial proceedings.

“We urge the French authorities to summon the representatives of the Chinese embassy in Paris in order to protest against this unacceptable harassment. The French authorities must condemn the Chinese government’s use of such aggressive methods with a French journalist and their violation of his freedom of information.”

Payen described to Reporters Without Borders the events that followed the broadcasting of his report. Taking advantage of a loosening in controls on people entering Tibet, Payen, entered the territory clandestinely in early May in order to do a report on China’s repression of its Tibetan minority. His report, entitled “Seven days in Tibet,” was broadcast by France 24 on 30 May and was followed by a live debate.

As Payen was leaving Paris for Bangkok on 3 June, the Chinese embassy in Paris contacted France 24and asked to meet with him. As he had by then already left, two embassy officials went to France 24to talk to its CEO, Marc Saikali. For two hours, they accused the station of broadcasting a mendacious report that was “riddled with errors” and demanded its removal from the website. The station refused.

From harassment to open threats

On his arrival in Bangkok on 4 June, Payen received a call on his mobile phone from the Chinese embassy in Thailand, although neither he nor France 24 had given his number to any Chinese diplomats. Asked to go to the embassy as soon as possible, Payen said he was willing to meet at a Bangkok hotel, but the Chinese diplomats ruled out a meeting anywhere but the embassy.

The embassy then stepped up its harassment of Payen, who received several anonymous calls and many texts. A message left yesterday by a female member of the embassy’s staff was openly threatening.

Here is a voice recording of the threat

How Many Foreigners Work in China? Not Very Many

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 21, 2013

Chinese are complaining that there are just too many foreigners here. ‘Too many’ is relative, of course, as when taking in perspective there are tons of foreigners here, if you compare that number to 1613, for example. But if you consider the number of foreigners that live in China to any other country you would find that with the exception of countries like North Korea and Cuba, there are relatively few foreigners here.

As a matter of fact, the communist party has admitted that only 600,000 non-Chinese reside in this land of 1.340.000.000 people. This number is about one-third of the amount living in New York City alone and maybe one-fifth or one-sixth the number of foreigners living in London. But of course this is China, land which had nothing but Chinese for so many years.

It is this time warp which still typifies China, a look at the past. They still believe that what is foreign is bad and does not work for China and its society. What this means is that a measure of scorn is still meted out to those barbarians who are not Han Chinese. What they fail to realize is that the year is 2013 and this whole globalization thing is not just a fad. Of course the Chinese like globalization when it exposes them to Apple products and allows them to steal our tech, but when it comes to giving something back, they falter.

The free riding Chinese do not like to give, but prefer taking. They believe it is their birth right for they descended from panygu who is some mythical spitting, stumbling Han god who made them what they are today. Blinded by the ignorance begotten by millennia of secrecy and seclusion, they have progressed precious little. The China of today is eerily similar to the China of 300 AD, and would be more so had it not been for the influence of the west.

Of course the Chinese fail to accept this fact and would like us all to be gone. They believe our use is merely that of language and we offer nothing else. The proof, however is in the pudding as were it not for knockoffs of western products, this place would still be selling corn leaves for toilet paper.

Oh but I have digressed, and should point my way back to the topic at hand. According to uncle chicom there were only 220,000 foreigners working in China as of 2011. Yeah, in a country of 1,340,000,000 there are only 220,000 foreigners working here and that is an unacceptably high level.
