If you’ve been wondering what is the real scoop on whether Communist China is just a friendly trading partner or a dangerous military threat, you should read a new book called Bowing to Beijing: How Barack Obama Is Hastening America’s Decline and Ushering in a Century of Chinese Domination. It’s an easy read about a complicated subject. Americans have bought $3 trillion in Chinese products, and the Chinese own more or our terrible national debt than anyone else. That has not made China our friend. China is still a completely authoritarian state run by Communist Party thugs, and half of all their major leaders in business, military and government are the children and grandchildren of those who founded the Chinese Communist Party with Mao. So, you see, Communist China has its own hereditary royalty just like the kings in Europe and the sheiks in the Middle East. Those Chinese Communist bosses are very, very rich, while the rest of the Chinese people work like slaves for about 50 cents an hour.
Meanwhile U.S. money has enabled the Chinese to finance a massive military buildup, a growing nuclear arsenal, and all kinds of high-tech weapons whose technology was stolen from America. Spying and stealing are major Chinese occupations. Did you know that the U.S. has prosecuted 60 Americans for spying for China, many of whom gave away important military or industrial secrets and patents. Official estimates are that China has thousands of agents now working for industries in our country who could be dangerous spies.
Ask your favorite presidential candidate to explain what is his policy toward China. America faces many threats right now, but perhaps none is greater than the threat from Red China. You can read all about this in the new book by Decker and Triplett called Bowing to Beijing.
