Communist China is lying, cheating, and stealing its way into becoming a global superpower. And what’s worse, President Obama is not only letting this happen but helping China do so. So argues best-selling author William Triplett II and Washington Times editor Brett M. Decker in their shocking book, Bowing to Beijing. Here, Triplett and Decker reveal how China’s rapid rise directly correlates with America’s decline—and the dangerous consequences this trend holds for us here and abroad. Exposing how China is unabashedly threatening and shaming us militarily, economically, and politically, Bowing to Beijing is an all-encompassing look at China’s destruction of traditional American industries at home, including how they’re punishing American firms abroad, buying our assets (sometimes in secret), and flooding American homes with dangerous products; China’s far-reaching espionage tactics, including extortion and subversion of the American political system as well as penetration of colleges and universities; China’s strategic military buildup and weapons smuggling to rogue nations such as North Korea; and Obama’s disengagement and general AWOL attitude toward the threat China poses to America. Our ´´win-win” relationship with China—in which Obama appeases China so they win twice while we lose—is crippling us and is detrimental to our future. America must respond and stop China’s power grab if we want to preserve our standard of living, our global influence, and our freedom. In Bowing to Beijing, Decker and Triplett show us how.

In Dangerous Ground, Scott Ritter, one of the world´s leading experts on arms control, tells a bold and revisionist account of the inseparable histories of the post-World War II American presidency and nuclear weapons. Unpacking 60 years of nuclear history, Ritter shows that nuclear weapons have become such a fixture that they define present-day America on economic, military, political, and moral grounds. And despite fears of global nuclear proliferation, the greatest threat to international stability, Ritter argues, is the U.S.´s addiction to nuclear weapons.Even in light of Barack Obama´s historic speech in April 2009, which called for the eventual abolition of nuclear weapons, America continues to guard a significant and dangerous nuclear stockpile. The notion that we are more secure with nuclear weapons is deeply entrenched in the American psyche - and virulently protected by forces in the U.S. establishment. As long as this paradigm persists, Ritter suggests, there will be no fundamental U.S. policy change, and as such, no change in global nuclear proliferation. 1. Language: English.

Over the past four years, President Barack Obama has systematically undermined every pillar of America’s strength and vitality from the economy to health care to immigration to energy policy to personal liberty. With a bloated federal bureaucracy, staggering national debt, crippling unemployment, a crushing burden of regulation and red tape for private business and entrepreneurs, zealous pursuit of far-left pet projects, and attacks on every Constitutional freedom imaginable, Obama has brought America to the brink of disaster. Will we be able to avoid going over the edge? Well-known author and academic researcher John Lott sounds the alarm as he convincingly documents the challenges we face and builds an overwhelming case for fundamental change not the kind Obama promised, but the kind we need to save America from permanent damage. At the Brink is a powerful and alarming look at the challenges we face, and the monumental problems the next president is about to inherit. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Vann.

Here is the biography of America´s hottest political superstar, Barack Obama, from a journalist who has been covering Obama´s career since his successful run for the US Senate. Barack Obama´s meteoric rise is the stuff of legend. Since his headline-grabbing speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2004, Obama has come to represent the promise of unity among groups of all types: blacks and whites; Democrats, Republicans, and moderates; the upper, middle, and lower classes. In this groundbreaking biography, veteran journalist and Obama chronicler David Mendell gives an in-depth, comprehensive portrait of a man whose name has become a catchphrase for hope in a politically jaded society desperate for a new star. Mendell has covered Obama since the beginning of his Senate campaign and, as a result, enjoys far-reaching access to the new senator. His research includes exclusive interviews with Obama´s closest aides, mentors, political adversaries, and family. Mendell reveals the surprising, cutthroat campaign tactics sanctioned by Obama - who has steeped his image and reputation in the ideals of clean politics and good government - which enabled him to win his Senate seat by employing some of the most ruthless operatives in the business. Eye-opening, well-researched, and compulsively listenable, Obama: From Promise to Power is a necessary look at the evolution of a politician from public servant to candidate-savior. 1.

From the moment he burst onto the national political scene, Barack Obama has fascinated people more than any politician in decades. Many biographers have already retold his story, but no previous book truly explains how his mind works, what passions drive him, or what makes him such an effective leader. This concise profile explores the ideas, inspirations, and experiences that have shaped the president. It quotes a wide network of sources, including many who broke long-standing vows of silence to offer their candid and surprising observations. Award-winning journalist Sasha Abramsky interviewed close to 100 of Obama´s current and former friends, colleagues, classmates, teachers, staff, mentors, basketball buddies, fellow Chicago activists, media consultants, editors, and even his next-door neighbors from Hyde Park. These people each know a part of Obama´s life and career, which the author blends the pieces into a uniquely detailed analysis. Abramsky explains the origins of Obama´s extraordinary poise, focus, and self-confidence; his powerful storytelling and speaking skills; and his empathetic listening style. He shows why Obama´s experiences as a community organizer are widely misunderstood and more influential than many people realize. And he explores how Obama found a unique way to bridge America´s racial divides. No previous book has delved so deeply into the events and people that helped make Barack Obama the man he is today. 1.

Political analyst and Democratic campaign veteran Mark Hannah gives Barack Obama the victory lap he deserves in this compendium that takes the president´s critics head-on and celebrates the president´s many underappreciated triumphs. Barack Obama´s election in 2008 was a watershed moment in American history that inspired supporters on the Left - and fired up enemies on the Right. Elected in the midst of multiple crises - a Wall Street meltdown that imperiled the global economy and American troops entangled in two foreign wars - Barack Obama´s presidency promised from the start to be one of the most consequential presidencies in modern American history. Although he stabilized the economy and restored America´s prestige on the global stage, President Obama has been denied the credit he deserves, receiving instead acidic commentary from political opponents such as former vice president Dick Cheney, who declared that Obama was ´´the worst president in [his] lifetime´´ - an accusation that reflects the politics of resentment and recrimination that has come to characterize the president´s critics. In The Best Worst President, Mark Hannah swiftly and systematically debunks conservative lies and disinformation meant to negate the president´s accomplishments and damage his reputation - baseless charges too often left unchallenged by the national media. The Best Worst President is a whip-smart takedown of these half truths and hypocrisies, each refuted in a smart, witty, fact-based style. Hannah not only defends the president but showcase his administration´s most surprising and underappreciated triumphs - making clear he truly is the best ´´worst president´´ our nation has ever known. 1.
