    PRIEBUS: Rising debt, rising China

    Among President Obama's many broken promises, none is as obvious as his failure to slow the growth of the nation's debt. Instead of cutting annual deficits in half, as promised, he racked up record annual deficits and rapidly accelerated our accumulation of debt, which recently surpassed an unthinkable $15 trillion.

    DECKER & WEINSTEIN: The Chinese century

    Is China really a threat to America's pre-eminence in the world? Brett M. Decker, editorial page editor of The Washington Times, thinks so, and what's more, he believes President Obama is helping to make the 21st century a Chinese Century. Mr. Decker discusses how in his new book, "Bowing to Beijing: How Barack Obama is Hastening America's Decline and Ushering a Century of Chinese Domination," published Monday by Regnery and co-authored with William C. Triplett II. Mr. Decker recently talked to Jamie Weinstein, senior editor of the Daily Caller, about his new book and the threat he believes China poses.

    A just-released book, "Bowing to Beijing" by Brett M. Decker and William C. Triplett II, will change forever the way you think about China - even if, like me, you already have the deepest worries about the Chinese threat. As I opened the book, I was expecting to find many useful examples of Chinese military and industrial efforts to get the better of the United States and the West.

    KUHNER: Obama's betrayal to China

    President Obama is creating a post-American world - one that is ushering in the dominance of China. Mr. Obama is fostering U.S. economic and military decline while simultaneously empowering Beijing's rise to superpower status. China's communists are on the march. Unless Americans wake up to the growing threat, both internal and external, our victory in the Cold War will have been useless.
