Review

Praise for Bowing to Beijing

“These searing revelations will have you calling for impeachment.”
—Tony Blankley, bestselling author of The West’s Last Chance

“China’s military build-up is a reality the United States must deal with and not just today, but well into the future. Conventional weapons systems, cruise and ballistic missiles, blue-water naval forces, and nuclear weapons are all part of Beijing’s aggressive plan. Brett M. Decker and Bill Triplett have written a compelling analysis of China’s plans and programs, and lay out a comprehensive and persuasive proposal for America’s response. Policy-makers must read this book.”
—Ambassador John R. Bolton, former permanent representative to the United Nations and under-secretary of state for arms control and international security

“To understand what China’s unprecedented rapid modernization and expansion of its military forces mean in terms of its clear objective to achieve regional supremacy in the western Pacific and beyond, Bowing to Beijing is an absolute must read. Brett M. Decker and Bill Triplett make clear that regardless of the vast economic relations between China and the U.S., unless we maintain our military deterrence capability, a serious confrontation looms just over the horizon.”
—Admiral James A. Lyons, Jr., former commander in chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet

“My Motown soul brother Brett Decker and Wild Bill Triplett take aim at communist China and hit the red dragon square between the eyes. Patriotic Americans need to read about the growing Chinese threat in Bowing to Beijing.”
—Ted Nugent, American rock ’n’ roll, sporting, and political activist icon, and bestselling author of Ted, White and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto

Please read this book.

Bowing to Beijing is sharp, tight, readable book that could and should shake the political arena in 2012, where China policy will be the biggest issue.

After reading this book, I've become vigilant about checking my food and household items for that insidious little "Made in China" stamp. Did you know that China is routinely the top violator of U.S. food standards? The FDA turns away imports that fail to meet our safety standards and China is at the top of the list for refused shipments nearly every month. From page 134 of the book "The inspector's note on a batch of refused fish gave this reason for his thumbs down: 'The article appears to consist in whole or in part of a filthy, putrid or decomposed substance or be otherwise unfit for food.' ... Unfortunately, merely stopping a poisonous product at a port of entry doesn't necessarily prevent it from ending up in an American home because corrupt Chinese exporters often re-ship refused products, hoping they will eventually slip past U.S. officials. In no uncertain terms, nothing from China can be assumed to be safe." Bratt Decker and William Triplett include many more examples of products people should watch out for from the People's Republic of China, from jewelry to patio furniture to toddlers' toys.

This is merely the most immediately relevant threat from China that Bowing to Beijing reveals. Also covered are the shockingly aggressive--and successful!--attempts by China to break into U.S. security systems, steal trade secrets and technology, and undercut the American economy through currency manipulation and other dirty tricks. Two of the reasons China can sell us such cheap stuff is they don't have workplace protections for their own people and they rip off other countries' products that cost a lot to develop. One family-owned paper shredder company (Fellowes Inc.

"Bowing to Beijing" is very important to read to learn about all the ways China breaks the established rules of business and trade to get ahead. The communists don't believe in fair play. This book by Brett M. Decker and Bill Triplett shows how the PRC sends armies of tech spies to trade shows here in America to steal commercial secrets from U.S. companies so Chinese firms can make products cheaper because their pricing is free of the huge costs of research and development. No wonder everything at the store is made in China: They rip off our design blueprints and use slave/prison/child/dirt-poor workers to build the junk -- avoiding all health, safety, environmental and labor laws at every step of the process. Americans need to put their collective foot down and do something about the China threat. Buy "Made in the USA" -- and buy "Bowing to Beijing" to see why you must.

Bowing to Beijing is a stunning indictment of the Obama administration's failed foreign policy backed by the frightening details of an America caught in a geopolitical death spiral carefully engineered by the Chinese Communist Party. Brett M. Decker and William C. Triplett, II have chosen to pull no punches as they line up the specifics of China's unyielding attack on America's economy, values, and military position and point them straight at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

While the details themselves are extremely engaging - the amazing stories of Chinese shenanigans via its puppet state in North Korea alone are worth the price alone - the power of this book is it the way it boldly ties all these tales of communist misbehavior into a package that leaves no doubt as to their purpose: total destruction of American power and values.

Bowing to Beijing is an extremely partisan book to be sure. If you're a red blooded Republican or Tea Party member you will bask in the light of each explosive page. If you're a open minded liberal, and perhaps once a fan of Mr. Obama's flowery rhetoric and charismatic podium personality you will certainly be quickly offended, but if you dare to read on and are willing to accept damning facts for what they are, you will be shaken to your core. You will also find that there is plenty of blame to go around for communist apologists both sides of the aisle.

I read every major book on China and frankly some of them are a long, hard slog to get through (are you listening Mr. Kissinger?). Bowing to Beijing is sharp, tight, readable book that could and should shake the political arena in 2012, where China policy will be the biggest issue. When you are done, pass this book along or buy two copies and mail one to Washington or your state capital.

Read this book. You will learn that we are at war with a super-power.

We are at war with China and getting our clock cleaned.

Read this book. It is the saddest, most painful book I've read in years. It is crammed full of information describing the malevolence and the aggressive intentions of China toward our country. You and I are in their crosshairs and we are buying them the bullets to shoot us.

Much sadder and more painful is the mirror that the authors hold up to a USA that has no self-control. With tough love, Decker and Triplett show us ourselves. Our reflection, clear and contemptible, is of a USA that is facing extinction as a result of our devotion to a deformed capitalism characterized by amoral greed, our backward thinking on what constitutes the weapons that defend our nation, our dearth of patriotism to our fellow citizens and their jobs, and our Dodo bird stupidity.

Read this book then connect the dots. See if you agree that the book's facts about the People's Republic of China indicate that, in important ways, they have already taken over our country. China has intimidated our leaders into silence. Much worse, as is the focus of this book, President Obama is, in practice, their ally against us.

Our greed is their ammo in a clever weapon system. They are using our beloved "free trade" capitalism against us, recognizing it as the romantic seduction fantasy it has always been.

Another of China's weapon systems, as this book amply documents, are armies of professional government hackers that have already successfully tested their ability to take down the networks and information systems that are the heart of our government, financial, and commercial systems.
