June Meeting: Peter Schweizer, President of Government Accountability Institute and a best-selling author6/22/2018 - Skopelos at New World

Buffet opens at 11:30 a.m.

Peter Schweizer's topic “The New Corruption:  Why It’s Worse Than You Think” is one we should all hear.  Corruption in Washington directly affects you…you just don’t know it.  Corruption is not a victimless crime;  it gives us bad politics and bad government.  Peter Schweizer doesn’t talk in abstract.  He names names.  And he calls out both sides of the political aisle.

No serious assessment of the 40th president of the United States can ignore the central importance of anti-communism in his career; after Schweizer none will.” The Los Angeles Times called it “A rousing and compelling case that Reagan’s personal and political odyssey…was central to bringing down the ‘evil empire.” He is also the co-author of The Bushes: Portrait of a Dynasty (Doubleday, 2004), which the New York Times called “Fascinating…Provides illuminating insights into the internal dynamics of the Bush family dynasty.” The New York Post declared “If you want to know as fully as can be told the story of how the Bushes rose from Midwestern obscurity to equal the records of families like the Roosevelts, the Kennedys, and the Adamses—this is the book.”
