Today, President Obama meets with Chinese leader Xi Jinping far outside the beltway, in sunny Palm Springs, California.

The two leaders have much to discuss, from North Korea to cyberattacks to recent reports of Chinese espionage in American institutions.

Peter Narvarro is a professor of economics and public policy at the University of California, Irvine. He recently directed a film entitled “Death By China.”

China is a totalitarian regime bent on world [soft] domination.

Now that it's out there. There's nothing wrong with Chinese people on a human level - they're just like you and me. The people's party, on the other hand, is taking the shortcut to superpower status. They do not want to share that top spot with the US or anyone. They steal tech because they don't foster the imagination to create on their own. They give away product globally because they don't have the openness to foster true friendships with outsiders. Every private endeavour is an extension of the party. Every profit margin is there to fund the party's goals. Every company we sell to them is to increase their inventory of tools to further the statement I initially made. They want to be the only shark in a perpetual school of herrings.

Make no mistake, helping the Chinese to help yourself financially is like getting paid to make the lives of your children so much more difficult.
