Xi Jinping Amasses Mao-Like Power In China

February 28, 2018 by


By Dean Cheng ~ Chinese governance has often benefited from adopting and sustaining a long-term perspective.

China Sets Out To Claim High Seas

April 16, 2015 by


By Dr. Peter Brookes ~ Check this: In a brazen move, the People’s Republic of China is now building “islands” in the South China Sea to bolster its position against several other East Asian countries – and the United States.

Worrying About China

December 19, 2014 by


By Alan Caruba ~ If there is one thing various experts and pundits like to do most it is to worry about all manner of speculative threats. I can recall when much of their focus was on the Soviet Union until 1991 when it collapsed along with the decline in the cost of oil. The […]

December 23, 2013 by


By James Carafano Ph.D.~ In 1962, the Beatles auditioned for Decca Records. Pope John XXIII excommunicated Fidel Castro. And China invaded India. More than 2,000 died in the harsh mountain combat. A self-declared “non-aligned” power, India never expected to be attacked by a Cold War protagonist. Unprepared, New Delhi threw ground troops into the fight, […]

China is NOT the Future

March 22, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba Last year I read a book, “China’s Megatrends: The 8 Pillars of a New Society” by John and Doris Naisbitt and was so entranced I completely neglected my normal skepticism and missed all the signals that what I was reading was essentially propaganda. I wonder now how I could have missed this […]

April 30, 2009 by


By Mark Alexander Last fall, Barack Hussein Obama pledged that his administration would carry out a “fundamental transformation of the United States of America.” Today, as we reflect on the first 100 days of the Obama regime’s occupation of the executive branch, with Party allegiance in the legislative branch, it pains me to report that […]
