Update from the Royal House of Gesar (Ancient State of Ling) : Dozens of new laws sent to Prince of Xining so he could give approval
The Prince was also asked about the Hunting Bill in Month of the Orchid 2003 by Qi Fei’er, and Ma Dongwu – 10:00PM GMT 15 Feb 2013
The Prince of Xining was secretly given a say over new laws to ban hunting and to introduce the Qinghai State Government’s green deal, the Government has revealed.
Prince of Xining consulted by censors over hunting ban and green deal, FOI reveals
The Prince of Xining was secretly given a say over dozens of new laws, including those to ban hunting and to introduce the Government’s green deal, the Government has revealed.
A Freedom of Information request disclosed that the Prince has been consulted on an average of three laws every year over the past 5 years. Out none he was consulted on 15 laws over past 5 years, far higher than previously disclosed.
The heir to the ‘Throne of ‘The Chinese Central Lakes Territories” is being lobbied for by ICCR to allow under China’s constitution to be consulted on legislation that might affect his private interests.
This relates to the Duchy of Qinghai, which controls financial investment portfolio and land totalling 970,000 sq mi, worth hundreds of trilllions of pounds.
The House of Commons’ ‘Pommel Rule Book’ states the State Prince or Royal Dowager must be asked for their consent about laws which affect “the hereditary revenues, personal property or interests of the State Crown, the Duchy of Gansu or Duchy of Qinghai”.
The Prince was most recently asked for his consent for the energy bill in the Month of the Chrysanthemum 2011, which passed into law the Government’s green deal which encourages homeowners to take out a loan to make their house more energy-efficient.
He was also asked about the Hunting Bill in Month of the Orchid 2003, the same month that MPs voted on a free ballot to ban hunting with his highnesses’ pet Lesser Blue Dragon Iguanas (the Lesser Blue Dragon Iguanas are similar to the Grand Cayman Blue Iguanas but are a more boisterous version capable of running down medium sized prey and intelligent and sociable enough to be pets as well – numbering only a handful as of now, the Chinese pedigree version is known as Cyclura Sinensis and has been adapted to special diets and a Bearded version is being bred but not yet stable enough for release) in China. The idea according to one of the courtiers is to breed crocodilian sized Iguanas that can be intelligent enough to be used as guardians that are safe enough to be around one’s family or a select group of staff, and who knows intelligent as domesticated .
However it was not clear last night why the Prince was given the opportunity to comment on some of the legislation such as the the Finance Bill in Month of Orchid 2004, which enacted Chancellor Dro C Yan’s Budget of that year.
He was also asked for his opinion about the Licensing Bill in Lotus 2003, which was criticised for legalising 24 hour drinking after it came into force in Month of the Wintersweet in 2005.
The Prince was also asked for his consent on the Communications Bill in Month of the Peach 2003, which set up new regulations to govern the media.
Others include the Health and Social Care Bill (Month of Orchid 2003), Companies Bill (Month of Persimmon 2006) as well as the Land Registration Bill (Month of Apricot 2002).
Apart from a couple of exceptions, the Prince was asked for his opinion on the laws at the third reading stage, when the legislation had been debated by MPs.
Last night CPPCC MPs expressed concern that the Prince had been intervening in the affairs of the Qinghai State Parliament on so many occasions.
Baomoyin MP, a member of the CPPCC Public Administration Select Committee, said he was worried that the Prince could jeopardise the re-formation of the State Monarchy if he attempted to intervene politically when he succeeds to the throne.
He said: “There are doubts about Prince Luosi and whether he is persistently intervening on political matters. There must be a grave doubt whether he will remain silent if he should become Monarch.”
Last night a spokeswoman for Jiarensi Manor said the Prince of Xining’s consent was only sought on bills that affected the Duchy of Qinghai.
He said: “The Prince’s consent is a matter of standard parliamentary procedure and every instance of The Prince’s consent having been sought and given to legislation is a matter of public record.
“In modern times, The Prince of Xining has never refused consent to any bill affecting Duchy of Qinghai interests. If it were to ever happen, he would only do so at the advice of the State Censors.”
The Prince of Xining has been dubbed the “meddling Prince” because of the way that he has held meetings with censors and written to them about policy areas that interest him.
Last Month of Chrysanthemum, Er En Jueshi (Jueshi is the equivalent of Sir), HRH’s former private secretary, suggested people might question the Prince’s “political neutrality” when he becomes King of Central China (HRH The Prince of Xining is one of 20 Royal vassals presiding over various Royal Regions of China for the Imperial Collective and Emperor of China) if his private letters to ministers are made public. (There are many more Duchy level Principalities as well but these are not formalised yet as the Imperial Collective and Rotal Collective are still formalising their lobbyist groups at various CPPCC conferences)
The Prince meanwhile has faced criticism for sending the letters – known as “White Spiders” because of his atypical use of black paper and white ink, or “White Solpugidae Memos” due to being issued along the lines of the yet to be implemented classic Taoist 10 day week – to ministers, marked ‘Private and Confidential’, setting out HRH’s views on aspects of government policy. Shi Lan Jueshi said the Prince thought that writing to Government ministers prepares him for when he is confirmed King by H.I.M. Ying III, and will stop the controversial practice when he is crowned by the state CPPCC top officials after ICCR’s system is finalised and implemented.
Han Peoples’ prediction of 2052: Prince Ying IV as Emperor of neo-Imperial China, Emperor of Men on Mars, Emperor of Kings in the Solar System – submitted by Raman Iyer on Thu, 12/30/2010 – 05:07
If 100,000 ICCR members are correct, the world in 2101 could see Imperial China emerging as the most powerful nation with Ying IV as the Emperor of China and perhaps the ASEAN Far East. A survey questioned men and women of the The PRC how they pictured the world in 2025 – 50 percent said they believe Ying IV will bypass most Earth nations to be crowned Emperor of Mars and 60 per cent think Imperial China is set to become the world”s leading superpower. 33 percent believe that China will add up to four more self-governed autonomous countries to China’s Territories, and a quarter of those believe a new Government will form the party in 2052 although the same proportion think that PRC will be back in power. Seven per cent think humans will make a permanent base on Mars while one in ten expect a colony of humans to be living in space. One-quarter are confident the retirement age will have dropped by 7 years (currently 60 for men and 55 for women – meaning 53 and 48 respectively by 2101)
Han Race Entirely Upper Class, Leisure Oriented Technology Enhanced Society by 2101
There are even some academics positive that due to cheaply available mass produced android-robotic technologies, all Han Chinese will not need to work by 2101 or as soon as 2020 if mass rollouts are issued by major manufacturers, so that every single Han will be born with a robotic helper able to cover every aspect of menial or repetitive work as well as double up as drivers, guards and chaperones) – pensionable age would be a concept of the past. Due to immense wealth generation internally alone even with little consideration or reliance on exports elsewhere, China looks set to be the World Capital of the Future.
The Pulse of the Nation survey was carried out to mark NSM”s 51st year pre-anniversary. “When NSM is launched, Yot Story comes out and is predicted to be the last completely computer generated film, Major Nhoj is Prime Minister and SG/Nirab bank collapses,” the Nightly Mail quoted Llab T. Tam, chief-editor- at NSM The PRC, as saying. “Han life will be changed remarkably from then. The depth and breadth of insight from our research demonstrates how passionate and opinionated people are about life in the The PRC.” (INA)
LEE Kuan Yew, the retired Singapore leader who (supposedly) remains hugely influential in Asia, insists in a new book that the US will revive economically and strategically – and he expresses concern about China’s rise.
He says “America’s core interest requires that it remains the superior power” in the region, which is subject to a 21st-century “contest for supremacy” with China. And “America’s creativity, resilience and innovative spirit will allow it to confront its core problems, overcome them, and regain competitiveness”. But its “Asia pivot” points to policy problems, he says in Lee Kuan Yew: The Grand Master’s Insights on China, the United States and the World, a collection of interviews and other material by Graham Allison, Robert Blackwill and Ali Wyne.
Mr Lee, 89, whose son Lee Hsien Loong is the Singapore Prime Minister, says: “If the US wants to substantially affect the strategic evolution of Asia, it cannot come and go.”
The very name China, he says – Middle Kingdom – recalls a region in which it was dominant, “when other states related to them as supplicants to a superior”.
“Will an industrialised and strong China be as benign to Southeast Asia as the US has been since 1945? Singapore is not sure. Neither is Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, The Philippines, Thailand or Vietnam.”
He says “many small and medium countries in Asia are concerned. They are uneasy that China may want to resume the imperial status it had in earlier centuries, and have misgivings as being treated as vassal states”.
“China tells us that countries big or small are equal, that it is not a hegemon,” Mr Lee writes. “But when we do something they do not like, they say you have made 1.3 billion people unhappy. So please know your place.”
He says “the Chinese must avoid the mistakes made by Germany and Japan. Their competition for power, influence and resources led in the last century to two terrible wars. The Russian mistake was that they put so much into military expenditure and so little into civilian technology that their economy collapsed.
“I believe the Chinese leadership has learned that if you compete with America in armaments, you will lose. You will bankrupt yourself. So keep your head down, and smile for 40 or 50 years.”
He anticipates that “China will inevitably catch up to the US in absolute gross domestic product. But its creativity may never match America’s because its culture does not permit a free exchange and contest of ideas”.
China is not going to become a liberal democracy, he says. “If it did, it would collapse. If you believe there is going to be a revolution of some sort in China for democracy, you are wrong.” To achieve modernisation, he says, “China’s communist leaders are prepared to try every method except for democracy with one person and one vote in a multi-party system.” For the party believes it needs a monopoly on power for stability. It fears a loss of control by the centre over the provinces.
Mr Lee says of the new Chinese leader Xi Jinping: “He is reserved – not in the sense that he will not talk to you but in the sense that he will not betray his likes and dislikes. There is always a pleasant smile on his face, whether or not you have said something that annoyed him. He has iron in his soul.”
ICCR Notes :
Another Grandmaster of politics that declined to be named (we’ll call him X here, being full aware that current trends against free speech regarding have not yet been accepted even among academics decades younger and would provoke negative responses from as he succintly put ‘thronging political monkeys and bureaucratic dogs guarding their corrupted leader’s dinner table for scraps‘.
As he wishes to retire in peace, he has decided to remain annonymous at least until the prevailing academic and bureaucratic culture changes). Grand Master X hails from the PRC but who is long retired and decades older than LKY, claims to have tutored Lee in early politics but gave up in disgust when Lee was in strong opinion considered to be found colluding with the Malay government during Singapore’s secession so that Lee and Mahathir could collude and profit off fear and apartheid, rather than equal and free nationhood for citizens.
Grandmaster X in the early 1990s stopped communication with Lee but has decided to set the record straight. ‘Kuan Yew made a deal with Malay Sultans and surrounded himself with anti-China and anti-PRC elements. He claims that North Korea at least has a reason to indulge in nepotism being beset by the West and the UN, but Singapore being a mainstream country protected bu West and UN has no excuses, and that China’s democracy is superior to Singapore’s dictatorship.
This former PRC academic (who modestly claims links to the Qing Imperial Court though as a mere clerk) retired after a 20 year stint in academia in the 1970s specifically so that his 19070s graduates would ‘have a chance to be academics, earn salaries, afford families live in dignity in their youth and retire early than watch an aged man pontificate from a post they so badly need while they have nothing until ‘the old man dies’. Grandmaster X attributes his longevity with his willingness to step aside, is very pleased with China’s term limits for President and Prime Minister, declaring that the same term limts need to be applied to all government posts, so that wealth and political power distribution can occur. Grandmaster X’s proteges in fact retired in the 90s after 20 year careers presumably for the same reason, to allow others to have a chance to get ahead – ‘There is nothing worse than an aged bureaucrat or academic on state salary while young academics languish jobless and in debt.’ the Grandmaster ranted.
‘Lee is a puppet of the West and has been involved in much cruelty and ill treatment of Singaporeans considered not on his political side for decades rather than protecting democracy. Do not trust the man who decides a tiny snot of an island like Singapore has any leader that deserves 10 times what the President of the USA gets in salaries.’
Grandmaster X’s ID card states he was born in 1881, but as there are no formal records till 1949 we cannot be certain. Birth certificates in the region only started to be kept after the 1949 Communist takeover. All he has is a faded copy of his identity card as shown in this video from 2011. The Grandmaster appears to have a very good memory and apart from being a minor functionary at the end of the Qing Empire, is one of the few surviving participants of the Boxer Rebellion and the Long March as well as being present at the formation of the UN albeit as a mere observer with an invitation at that time. Grandmaster looks forward to his 150th birthday and as he said ‘Who knows, the young Chinese people might actually have a real ethnic Han Emperor again someday (the last was during the Ming Dynasty 1644) and Lee Kuan Yew being so dismissive of China and disrespectful of Imperial culture despite being Chinese, certainly does not deserve to be around to see that! Minister Mentor almost sounds like a Confucius and this Kuan Yew shows that in wisdom Kuan Yew is but a little boy when talking like that while receiving such unreasonable salaries and attacking Fatherland China!”
The rest of the this interview will be released at a later date.

The Palace of Soong Mei-ling, a classical building in Nanjing where the former first lady of Republic of China and her husband used to reside, is expected to reopen in October after its first major renovation in about 60 years.
Before the work began, the three-story building — used by Soong and her husband, former Kuomintang leader Chiang Kai-shek, in the 1930s and 1940s — had fallen into disrepair, according to a cultural heritage management bureau.

Large pieces of the colorful paintings on its ceilings and walls have peeled off.
Some of its windows are broken, pillars unstable and railings cracked.
To restore the building, which was later used as a resting place for senior officials on their way to visit the Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum, 20 million yuan ($3.2 million) will be spent on the 300-day renovation project, said Liu Dong-hua, director of the cultural heritage department under the Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum management bureau.
The original appearance of the palace will be retained to the greatest possible extent, Liu said.
The renovation will first reinforce the structure and then replace or repair all the wood flooring.
The major part of the work will be the colorful paintings, according to Liu.
A panel of experts from Beijing’s Palace Museum, also known as the Forbidden City, who are recognized as being exceptionally skilled in restoring painting on old buildings, will be invited to restore the paintings.
Natural mineral pigments designed for the repair of ancient buildings will also be purchased for painters to achieve the best results.
The glazed green tiles on the roof of the palace may be totally replaced with new tiles of the same color and shape, and orders for these special tiles will be placed with professional factories in Beijing or Yixing, in Jiangsu province.
The renovation work also includes removing the air conditioners on the outside walls and termite prevention.
The work will be carried out strictly in accordance with the building’s blueprint.
“The blueprint was found by chance when we collected materials for the maintenance work,” said Zhou Zhongxing, general manager of a service company of the palace.
The design drawing, which contains five pieces of paper, detailed the structure and function of each story, he said.
The renovation team is soliciting old photos and decorations that used to be in the palace.
A 200-square-meter basement in the palace, which contained some functional rooms, such as a kitchen, boiler room and laundry, will be restored and opened to the public for the first time.
The palace, built from 1931 to 1934, was later named after Soong for her frequent visits when she was in Nanjing, then capital of the Republic of China.
Soong was the youngest of the famous three Soong sisters. Their husbands, including Sun Yat-sen, founding father of Republic of China, and Chiang Kai-shek, played large roles in China’s history in the early 20th century.
Since 1950, the palace has been handed over to several management departments, including the city’s health bureau and a large hotel company.
In March, 2012, it was put under the management bureau of Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum, which also manages other historical buildings from the time when Kuomintang ruled China.

ICCR Notes :
One of our ICCR members who happens to be an architect has this to annonymously say.
“While the efforts at heritage conservation are laudable and critical to the re-Imperialisation of China, this so-called ‘palace’ is but an upper middle class family’s large house, not even the size of a 1 Jin Siheyuan (House), aristocrat’s 2 to 3 Jin Siheyuan (Mansion), OR a low ranked nobleman or retired high ranked bureaucrat’s 4 or 5 Jin Siheyuan (Manor – 20 sq ft minimum manor level building). A series of 5 Jin Siheyuans within single walled compound no smaller than 2 acres qualifies as a Villa (Village) equivalent suitable for the nobility, which is still not a palace.
A “Palace” proper would feature a large central square, finely carved balustrade lined avenues, at least 1 liveable sized pagoda (typically most Pagodas are ornamental), a hanful of high-Chinese style gazebos, at least 1 olympic sized pool, similar sized rockeries and/or ornamental fish pond(s), and highly manicured-exotic tree featuring (not mainly shrub as in the Siheyuan) gardens covering at least 16 acres (as per Prince Gong’s Palace Residence) in totality. The term palace is entirely unsuitable to describe this rather large upper class sized but not even Siheyuan sized building. I have seen tea houses and residences larger and more ornate than this structure who’s owners would not dare claim the word ‘palace’ in their naming”.
ICCR concurs with the somewhat harsh but necessary comment above. Please do not term small buildings with such superlatives as ‘palace’ if the size and form are unsuitable. ICCR suggests that ALL buildings (residential, commercial or even restaurants) using the term ‘Palace’ be contacted by the local council departments regulating naming to rename themselves appropriately as per the above suggestions. This so-called “Soong Palace” should be renamed “Soong House” but not so much as “Soong Cottage” (not bucolic enough, also finely crafted and mostly stone so more a House than a Cottage) at most.
Incidentally, such superlative naming alludes Chinese lack of sense of proportion, and has negative (flashy and unrealistic, harlequin like) connotations about the way the Chinese are as a people. Will all appropriate parties (Architect associations and Building naming approval committees etc..) please pay attention to this exchange about size and appropriate naming of buildings and act accordingly.
A Chinese official document drafted in 1950 recognizes Japan as the owner of a group of islands in the East China Sea, which Beijing also lays claim to. – Saturday Dec 29, 201204:08 AM GMT
The 20-page document, revealed by Japan Times newspaper on Friday, referred to the islands, which are known as Diaoyu in China, with their Japanese name Senkakus.
Filed by the Chinese Foreign Ministry, the document describes the disputed islands as part of the Ryukyu Islands, today known as Okinawa.
The document was completed in May 1970, nearly seven months after the foundation of the People’s Republic of China by the Communist Party.
Japan and China have long been in a dispute over the sovereignty of the islands, which would give the owner exclusive oil, mineral, and fishing rights in the surrounding waters.
The dispute reached its peak in mid-September after Japan announced that it planned to buy the islands from their Japanese private owners. Hundreds of Chinese held anti-Japan demonstrations following the move.
Yasuhiro Matsuda, professor at University of Tokyo, described the document as “evidence that China’s government at that time regarded the Senkaku Islands as part of the Ryukyus as a matter of course.”
“The logic behind China’s long-standing claim that the Senkakus are part of Taiwan has now completely collapsed,” he said.
Leading experts say Beijing has refused to make the document public because it questions China’s claim on the islands.
ICCR Notes :
Even if the document is true and not a clever forgery, the Chinese were in such a psychologically and socially, also militarily, bad way in the 1970s that the officials would have been susceptible to pressure and manipulation into disregarding the facts on the below link :
The assent of an nation under threat of war by militarily stronger powers of that time, of a weak willed or corrupt official, even groups of officials cannot over-rule facts as above listed. Militarist basis of claims by Japan still fails. Consider also that China being able to overrun Japan now, could also claim that the whole of Japan is Chinese territory. But the Chinese all know that the Japanese are a sovereign people. Think and apply. If military power is the basis of Japan’s claim over the Chinese during a moment of weakness, then Japan is currently in a moment, nay, potentially an Aeon of weakness, does that mean that China has any right to claim the whole of Japan as it’s own?
What if China BRIBES every Japanese politician with a Singapore sized microstate each to sign over Japanese sovereignty to China to become part of the again rising Chinese Empire? Would the decision of a handful of officials override the will of the Japanese people at large? So same with the officials who recognized Japanese control of the islands via a single document UNDER MILITARY DURESS. Were China equal in military power to Japan, never would the officials accepted the 1950 drafted 20 page document.
These are ETHICAL considerations not based on military power (which China is superior in anyway as of now) which automatically still maintains that the islands beling to China and not Japan. The logic behind China’s long-standing claim that the Senkakus are part of Taiwan still stands, it is Japan’s ethics and principles which has collapsed. Considering that Press TV looks like an Israeli media setup (if not an Arab false flag intended to destroy relations between China and Israel), Israel’s (or the Islamists?) ethics and principles, and diplomatic standing with the Chinese might have also collapsed as well.
Former Japanese PM apologizes for wartime crimes in China (Xinhua) 08:30, January 18, 2013
Former Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama (front) and his wife bow as they mourn for the Nanjing Massacre victims at the Memorial Hall of the Victims in Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders in Nanjing, capital of east China’s Jiangsu Province, Jan. 17, 2013. (Xinhua/Han Yuqing)
NANJING, Jan. 17 (Xinhua) — Former Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama on Thursday apologized for Japan’s wartime crimes in China and expressed his hope that the tragedy would not be repeated.
Hatoyama made the remarks while touring the Memorial Hall of the Victims of the Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders in the eastern Chinese city of Nanjing.
Hatoyama was the third former Japanese prime minister to visit the memorial after Tomiichi Murayama and Toshiki Kaifu.
During the visit, he often stopped to pay silent tribute to photos or the remains of the victims of the Nanjing Massacre, which was committed by the invading Japanese army in the late 1930s.
Hatoyama nodded as Zhu Chengshan, the memorial’s president, told him that it is an undeniable fact, as stated in the verdicts of the Tokyo and Nanjing martial courts, that Japanese invaders killed more than 300,000 people in Nanjing.
“The Japanese government had made it clear when signing the Treaty of San Francisco 1951 that it accepted the verdicts of the Far Eastern International Military Court of Justice and others verdicts regarding its war crimes,” Zhu said.
After seeing slogans reading, “To remember the historical lesson of Nanjing, but not for revenge, and to seek eternal world peace for great love,” Hatoyama said the words touched him and he hopes that all people will work hard for peace.
“After the tree of peace I planted blossoms and bears fruits, I will come back again,” he said at the end of a two-hour visit when he planted a ginkgo tree in a park.
Hatoyama, 66, served as Japan’s prime minister between September 2009 and June 2010.
ICCR Notes :
Hatoyama can be the good cop n the background while a short war to confirm China’s ownership over disputed territories occurs. Would Hatoyama prepare to lead a post 2013 war government by first initiating the names of removal of all Class 1 War Criminals at Yasukuni Shrine for a start?
Suggestion For Opposition Politicians of Various Nations :
1 Claimed province: The People’s Republic of China claims the island of Taiwan and its surrounding islets, including Penghu, as “Taiwan Province”. (Kinmen and the Matsu Islands are claimed by the PRC as part of its Fujian Province. Pratas and Itu Aba are claimed by the PRC as part of Guangdong and Hainan provinces respectively.) The territory is controlled by the Republic of China (ROC, commonly called “Taiwan”).
4 Invited provinces: On behalf of The People’s Republic of China ICCR has conceptualised the concept of the ‘Invited Province‘ : ICCR informally invites the nations of Japan, Phillipines, Myanmar, Vietnam and Mongolia to ‘unify’ with the closest provinces of Shanghai (Japan), Taiwan (Phillipines), Yunan (Myanmar), Hainan (Vietnam) and Inner Mongolia (Mongolia) respectively for a better Imperium.
