The Amazon blurb says that NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Washington insiders operate by a proven credo: when a Peter Schweizer book drops, duck and brace for impact.
When a Peter Schweizer book drops, duck and brace for impact
For over a decade, the work of five-time New York Times bestselling investigative reporter Peter Schweizer has sent shockwaves through the political universe.
Clinton Cash revealed the Clintons’ international money flow, exposed global corruption, and sparked an FBI investigation. Secret Empires exposed bipartisan corruption and launched congressional investigations. And Throw Them All Out and Extortion prompted passage of the STOCK Act. Indeed, Schweizer’s “follow the money” bombshell revelations have been featured on the front pages of the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, and regularly appear on national news programs, including 60 Minutes.
Now Schweizer and his team of seasoned investigators turn their focus to the nation’s top progressives—politicians who strive to acquire more government power to achieve their political ends.
Can they be trusted with more power?
Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Progressive Elite contains tomorrow’s headlines.

While many today want to talk about income inequality in America, the larger divide is one of power inequality
"While many today want to talk about income inequality in America, the larger divide is one of power inequality," says Schweizer. "Public power, and thus influence, makes it tempting to leverage your position for the direct benefit of yourself, family, friends, and those who will keep you there. The greater the public power, the longer the lever arm a politician has to tip the scales."
"I focus on progressives here because they are unique in one respect from all others on the contemporary American political scene: they all favor the rapid and radical expansion of federal political power in the United States. Whether their goal is to pursue an abstract idea such as economic equality, transform the health care system, or use the judicial system to right social wrongs, progressives are unique in asking citizens to trust government officials with even more power than they currently possess. In short, progressives are asking us to give them more leverage over our lives." says Schweizer. Political correctness is a perverse political construct that increases liberal power immensely. With PC, they can censor anyone, gag conservative speakers (canceling the First Amendment in the process), bias academia, the media, and Hollywood with an anti-male, anti-white perspective that insists that blacks are victims and whites are victimizers. How's that for blatant racism!?

"Joe Biden emerges as the king of the sweetheart deal, with no less than five family members benefiting from his largesse, favorable access, and powerful position for commercial gain," says Schweizer. Later, he notes "The blind eye to priest sexual abuse was just part of a pattern of favoritism that has permeated [Kamala] Harris’s career as a prosecutor." [She] "never brought a single documented case forward against an abusive priest." [Even though other cities were bringing plenty forward—could it have something to do with the Church's massive political contributions to her campaign? What a surprise—a corrupt politican!]
What could possibly be more despicable than a priest taking advantage of the innocence of children just to get his jollies?
What is more despicable than a priest taking advantage of the innocence of children just to get his jollies? It's enough to make one upchuck!
Once you read this book, you are unlikely to want to vote for any of the liberals in the corruption cabal. It's not only Democrats who have received big bucks from companies that will turn around and support legislation in their favor. The greedy Republicans have made that a modus operandi of their actions for decades. We'd like to see Schweizer write a non-partisan account of some of the most visible Republicans, so one will get a picture that it isn't only Democrats, but also Republicans.
Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Progressive Elite is a must-read for all American voters! These elected officials are using their power and influence to gain vast amounts of wealth and favors for themselves, their families, their friends and their donors while hypocritically campaigning for social justice and the middle class!

The Government Accountability Institute (GAI) is a conservative nonprofit think-tank located in Tallahassee, Florida. The GAI was founded in 2012 by Peter Schweizer and Steve Bannon with funding from Robert Mercer and family. Schweizer serves as the group's president.
When individuals can run for President and yet nothing is exposed about their questionable pasts, one can only come to the conclusion that the fix is in. The Founders apparently never envisioned a day when a free press wasn't so free. Look no further than the billionaires who control what gets reported. See Freedom of the Press—an American Delusion and Democracy—an American Delusion.
Do we have freedom of the press? In your dreams!
In the year 1917, Congressman Oscar Callaway revealed the global elitists' plans to acquire control of the media, inserting the following statement in the Congressional Record of the U.S.:
"In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press. They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers." See Oscar Callaway Quote.
U.S. neocons' imperialism and warmongering is out of control yet the Congress tasked with stopping such abuses is mute—something smells rotten in Washington!
Readers who want to be well-informed voters should use Schweizer’s Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Progressive Elite as a source. He is very thorough.
Joe Biden has a rape allegation lodged against him; is he guilty? Well, he and his family love to screw the American taxpayer with his constant corruption, so we vote YES
In April 2019, Tara Reade said that in 1993, while she was a staffer in Biden's Senate office, he had inappropriately touched her several times on her shoulder and neck. In March 2020, Reade accused Biden of pushing her against a wall and digitally penetrating her while on Capitol Hill in 1993. Biden's 2020 presidential campaign has denied the allegation. The New York Times reported that "No other allegation about sexual assault surfaced in the course of reporting, nor did any former Biden staff members corroborate any details of Ms. Reade's allegation. The Times found no pattern of sexual misconduct by Mr. Biden." On April 9, 2020, Reade filed a police report with the Washington Metropolitan Police (MPD) alleging she was sexually assaulted in spring 1993. The case was described as "inactive" by the MPD. It was expected that liberal The New York Times would make Biden look good. However, they need to read Schweizer’s well-documented Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Progressive Elite, which shows the REAL Joe Biden. They'd eat their words.

Who behind the scenes has the power to order mighty Google to remove the clip of the woman questioning Larry King on how to handle her daughter's rape accusation against Biden, and also order everyone else involved in propaganda not to mention the matter? The Shadow Government and the CIA censors installed at every major USA media outlet can censor stuff that deviates too far from the party line. How exactly Google fits into this censorship is unknown, but Google can also censor stuff that deviates too far from their political worldview, since it's their site. It would be wonderful if they would get out of the censorship business, in our opinion. It would be good if the Shadow Government and the CIA would get out of the censorship business too.
Biden and his family love to screw the American taxpayer with his constant corruption
"James Biden’s firm received $1.5 billion in government contracts, despite having no experience, during the Obama administration.
Frank Biden is linked to projects receiving millions in taxpayer loans from the Obama Administration, despite having no experience.
Hunter Biden’s firms scored business deals with people and entities tied to the governments of Russia, China, and Kazakhstan, and those deals “reportedly scored him hundreds of millions of dollars.”
Elizabeth Warren’s son-in-law, with whom she is close, produced a film backed by the Iranian government." (Source: Four Bombshells Revealed in Peter Schweizer’s ‘Profiles in Corruption’, Hannah Bleau, Breitbart)
"If Democrats figure so heavily in others – exclusively in Profile in Corruption – it is because these days Democrats tend to be more accomplished at corruption, as they are at political hardball in general, than Republicans. . . . Schweizer focuses his searchlight on nine figures who exemplify political corruption in the administrative state that is America today. More than half of the figures are household names – Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders. The rest are prominent but somewhat lesser-known Democrats: Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. . . . Schweizer’s inventory of [Kamala] Harris’s shady behavior while attorney general for California is partly shocking, partly numbing. Harris was always ready to look the other way when powerful political interests were involved, but ferocious when dealing with people without power or influence."

Progressives are 2-faced, all for the little guy in words, all for themselves in deeds—this is the ultimate hypocrisy
"'While those with little or no power have to pay for the consequences of their actions, the political class often does not. The power elite – the people who grease the wheels for themselves – are the most disconcerting and dangerous ones.' Despite the conspiracy of silence imposed by a compliant media on these facts, the truth is leaking out bit by Biden bit. It is one reason that we now have President Donald Trump, not President Hillary Clinton. It is a reason, too, that, come January 2021, President Trump will embark on his second term. We all owe Peter Schweizer an enormous debt of gratitude for his enormous and effective labors in bringing sunlight to these tenebrous and mephitic climes."

Despite the conspiracy of silence imposed by a compliant media about the Democrats' corruption, come January 2021, President Trump will embark on his second term, says writer Roger Kimball
"Here, in stunning detail, the Biden corruption is laid bare.... What Peter Schweizer has accomplished here is adding one more detailed volume that illustrates in vivid form just how corrupt Washington, D.C., has sadly become.... a much, much larger problem of serious corruption on the part of insider Washington elites—most particularly progressives who rail against capitalism and corporations while raking in millions.... Without doubt, if you read only one book in this already tumultuous 2020 election year, that book should be Peter Schweizer’s Profiles in Corruption."

Democrats and their friends in the media attempting to push Biden’s candidacy forward resemble nothing so much as the cast of the 1989 comedy Weekend at Bernie’s, hauling around their dead boss’s corpse and trying to pretend he’s still alive—Robert Stacy McCain in The American Spectator
Biden will not pose much of a challenge to Trump; Biden stumbles about everything, and he appears to be half asleep most of the time; he'll be wanting to sleep in between questions at the 2020 debates—the man is obviously SENILE!
