Would the presidential candidates authorize the sale of F-35s to Taiwan to allow it to better defend itself in the event of a Chinese attack if Taiwan declares its independence?
"The decision as to sell Taiwan the F-35 is a critical strategic one that will be waiting on the new president’s desk in January of 2017."

The world’s most populous nation and biggest cheater in the global-trading arena nonetheless casts a long shadow over the TPP debate.
If past is prologue, the latest trade deal being foisted on the American public by a Democratic president and a Republican Congress — known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership — will be every bit as injurious to the U.S. economy and national security as the last time we waltzed down that “free trade” dead end in 2001. In 2001, China joined the World Trade Organization and immediately began flooding U.S. markets with illegally subsidized exports. In ...

Crounching Tiger: What China's Militarism Means for the World (This title will be released on November 3, 2015)
Crouching Tiger, written by Peter Navarro, provides the most complete and accurate assessment of the probability of conflict between the United States and the rising Asian superpower. Equally important, it lays out an in-depth analysis of the possible pathways to peace. Written like a geopolitical detective story, the narrative encourages reader interaction by starting each chapter with an intriguing question that often challenges conventional wisdom. 

Based on interviews with more than thirty top experts, the author highlights a number of disturbing facts about China's recent military buildup and the shifting balance of power in Asia: the Chinese are deploying game-changing "carrier killer" ballistic missiles; some of America's supposed allies in Europe and Asia are selling highly lethal weapons systems to China in a perverse twist on globalization; and, on the U.S. side, debilitating cutbacks in the military budget send a message to the world that America is not serious about its "pivot to Asia." 

In the face of these threatening developments, the book stresses the importance of maintaining US military strength and preparedness and strengthening alliances, while warning against a complacent optimism that relies on economic engagement, negotiations, and nuclear deterrence to ensure peace.

Accessible to readers from all walks of life, this multidisciplinary work blends geopolitics, economics, history, international relations, military doctrine, and political science to provide a better understanding of one of the most vexing problems facing the world.
