"Back. It's rich valdes our guest is Peter Schweitzer and he is the author of the book red handed how American elites get rich helping China win. He's also president of the government accountability institute. Now, Peter Schweitzer, I was alluding earlier to these conflicts of interest that we see with just so many different politicians. And Mitch McConnell is not the least of which. So I would love you to address that and also to address anything we may have left unbuttoned from the previous segment. I didn't want to cut you off. I've been chomping at the bit to bring that up because I feel like as many times as we talk about it, it doesn't get the mileage that it deserves. Well, I appreciate that, rich. Yeah. I mean, look, the problem with China engaging in what they call elite capture, which is their word and their approach, which is essentially to sort of buy off political elites by giving them commercial favors. The bidens that are an example of that. But this is not just a Biden problem. This is a bipartisan political problem in Washington and Mitch McConnell, the leader of the Republicans in the Senate has equally troubling ties to China. In his particular case, he's married to Elaine Chao. She served in the Trump administration as the transportation secretary. She was the labor secretary in the George W. Bush administration. They got married in the early 1990s and her family owns a shipping business called foremost shipping. Well, back in 1993, you've got a young senator from Kentucky who's marrying Elaine Chao. They get married. The trip that they take, really the first trip, maybe it's even their honeymoon is a trip to Beijing, China. Now this is only four years after Tiananmen Square. So it's a very sensitive time, very few politicians if any are going to Beijing. But Mitch McConnell shows up with Elaine Chao. They're not there as guests of the embassy. They're not there on official business. They are there as a guest of the Chinese state shipbuilding corporation, which has been named, of course, shows is owned by the Chinese government. It also happens to be the biggest military contractor in China. And they essentially go to the McConnell chow family and say, look, we want to strike you a deal. You've got this shipping company

"All right, America. Welcome back. It's rich valdes valdes with an S average valdes on all of the social media, and I'm looking at a headline here in breitbart, says according to data, teachers unions followed 15 $9 million to leftist causes despite 57% of teachers being Republicans and independents. So I want to get to the bottom of that and more and one of my favorite investigative journalists and fellow at the Hoover institute is Peter Schweitzer, Peter Schweitzer welcome. Rich, great to be with you. Thanks so much for having me. Yes, sir. I appreciate you staying up late late night radio is great, but we are live, and that's always fun. Speak to talk to you, my brother. So tell me a little bit about what's going on here. I know you crunched these numbers better than anybody. What's up with the teachers union? I've never been a big fan, but this doesn't look very copacetic to me. Yeah, rich. What we did was at the government accountability institute where I'm president. So our researchers went through the so called L two forms that all unions are required to file with the Department of Labor and they're actually pretty detailed. They have to describe what they're spending money on and what the purpose of that money is. Now, you would think that an organization like the national education association would be spending most of their money on so called representational activities, right? That's what they advertised to teachers that they do. They help them get a better contract, better healthcare, better retirement, et cetera. But when you actually look at their filings, what you find that is in 2021, which is the last year available. The NEA spent $32 million on representational activity. They spent $66 million on political activities. So more than double of the actual work that they're supposed to be doing it as a union and a lot of those political activities really, when you look at it, where they spent the money, the groups they gave the money to, et cetera, rich really has nothing to do with improving education, improving the job for teachers. It was supporting groups that are anti police defund the police. These kinds of radical causes. So what you find is that these unions are really serving as political mechanisms in a way that they didn't in the past and as we point out in the report, in fact, public opinion surveys that are done of union membership that have done our teachers show that well over half of them are Republican or independent. And yet, of the money that was spent in the last election cycle, $59 million, all of it, all of it went to liberal Democrats. So there's a massive disconnect between the leadership of the unions and the rank and file members themselves. Wow, folks, we're on with Peter Schweitzer, he's president that the government accountability institute and we're uncovering what's going on with the teachers union. Now this is honestly something I've always suspected this to be the case that these unions really serve very little purpose other than negotiating extremely favorable contracts for public employee teachers. And just funneling tons of cash to promote political agendas. Now, it sounds like you're confirming that that's the case. How do we attempt to solve this? Well, it's a good question, rich. There's a couple of things. I mean, the first thing is I think that there's a lot of people that might be members of teachers unions because they want representation. They want to make sure that in case there's a legal issue. So I understand that, but what a lot of members have to realize is that's really not what the union is spending the money on. When you send them to dues, that's what they tell you the money is for, but the vast majority of the money is going for massive salaries for the leadership and is going for these kinds of political activities. I mean one of the things we found rich, for example, was that in 2020, the American federation of teachers paid the secretary treasurer of that organization or named Loretta Johnson in a single year they paid her $1.4 million in compensation. She was the head of the racial equity task force. She is the one that got the union pushing on critical race theory and so called social justice. But you got a big payday. She got $1.4 million working for the American federation of teachers, which is supposed to ostensibly be a nonprofit organization. So the first thing is that rank and file teachers who are members need to let the leadership know this is not why they're in a union and they don't want their views going in this direction. There needs to be people within the union raising these issues, but the second one is more specific that could include the new Congress, for example. And that is that these unions are given a nonprofit tax against status by the IRS. Just like my organization, the government accountability institute. When you get that status from the IRS, you get it based on stating what your mission statement is. So for my government accountability institute is exposing crony cronyism and corruption. And what that means is I can't maintain my status and then start doing something completely different like environmental work in South America. That's not what my mission statement is. The unions, if you look at the NEA, their statement, their stated statement to the IRS for their existence is to represent teachers and collective bargaining and to promote the virtues of public education. Funding Black Lives Matter anti police organizations has absolutely nothing to do with their mission statement presented to the IRS. So there needs to be an investigation about the tax exempt status that these organizations have because they are far afield of what they say they're actually using their money for. And it's interesting to me because the other day I was arguing with somebody and they were saying, well, you know, it's not fair because these people didn't manage their money right and that's why the Tea Party was denied 501c3 status. And we clarified that, but it's interesting how there were organizations at one point trying to launch and couldn't even get a 5 O one and then you have these that have it and do whatever they want and go outside of the scope of their work and nobody bats an eyelash. Yeah, that's right. I mean, there seems to be a double standard here. And look, what's happened is the unions themselves. We've always known that the teachers unions were left of center. That's gone on for decades. And everybody acknowledges that. But a lot of them are what you would traditionally call Walter Mondale Democrats. These are people that are center left, they believe in union power. They believe in union control, getting the best thing for their workers. They have a slightly left of center agenda. The leadership of the unions now is not anything resembling Walter Mondale Democrats. These are organizations that are pouring huge amount of money into political campaigns, whether it's Stacey Abrams or AOC, these are not centrists. These are not Walter Mondale types. So these are political movements that have morphed out of what were traditional unions. And I think it's time that that be investigated and we look at their tax exempt status as it relates to how they've gone so far afield for what they claim their existence is for. So now Peter Schweitzer, are you and the government accountability institute digging into this? Yes, we are. We're going to continue to monitor this and investigate it. We are looking at some of the organizations that they are funding, the amount of money that they're pouring into it, the fact that they are taking union dollars and putting it into really political movements, which I don't think represent really what the union should be doing. But they're putting it into organizations like color of change, color of changes in organization that talks about police officers as killer cops. I mean, they sort of make these blanket statements about the police say they poured $2 million into an organization called the center for popular democracy. Now, this is a group that a

But the U.S. turns out my best friend and business has named me as a witness without telling me in a criminal case and my father. Oh, his father, at the end, by the way, is Joe Biden. That is actual authenticating the audio of Hunter Biden from the laptop from hell. How bad can it get? Are there more scandals? Well, of course they are. It's the swamp, and it's the bidens.

There's no responsibility from the president on what happened in afghanistan. there's no responsibility from General milley does anybody actually think any of these things are going be Paid for if you know or even even seriously be looked at where there is a serious penalty. That could happen one of the other things that happened. This week is Twitter blocking the hunter biden story. The sec said that wasn't election interference. Ha how how that buried a major story. That was really important for the american people to understand. There are crimes being committed by joe biden and his family and they involve china among other nations. You cannot have a president who has compromised. How is that not election. Interference jason chafe. It's is with us.

And i've talked to him on and off air and it is loaded with fax that That joe biden knows. There is evidence that he knew was involved in massive corruption. Yeah it looked peter. Spicer's earned a reputation over the years of doing very thorough research. And the he's the one who leads the government accountability to so what you look at is not only. Do you have the laptop. But then if you cross reference it with what senator johnson found in the service records and then you cross reference it again with other e mails. Perhaps those that are on the receiving end of those emails. Then you've triangulate it and you have a really good picture that this is authentic material and as you said glen it does go directly to the greater biden. Family their dealings in china. They're dealings in in ukraine and the one that really bothers me as what was going on in mexico because that was as strong of a case for quid-pro-quo as you could ever possibly make. I'm not sure i know the the mexico connection. Tell me that story at one point. Hunter biden's is frustrated. He says he's about these on air force two. He's about to go with his father to mexico and he's telling the former grandson or their former the grandson of the former president of mexico. Look i'm coming there.

"Never heard of it to that degree. Look, General Milley needs to come forward and say yes, that's true and then resign and probably probably be, you know, charged with treason and tried Or he needs to say no, That's not true. And this is the truth. Um, there are other parts of that book. Quite frankly, Glenn that don't make a whole lot of sense, at least based on the Washington Post account that I've read it. I haven't read the book. Um, but General Milley in his own voice if he starts to use the spokesperson if he starts to use somebody who has written something out of the Pentagon Then my inclination is Yeah, it probably is true What happened today? All the worst. That's that's what the key indicator right there now, Fauci. Fauci, uh, his way out of control, And now we're using the where using OSHA as a threat to use this public private partnership with these giant corporations. To enforce a vaccine on the American people. Um, The president has no ability to do this. But that doesn't stop them from defying the Supreme Court when it comes to HHS, suspending all you know, loans and and repossessions. They just keep doing it. How out of the norm is that Well, I saw that to be more and more common Look, I was elected the same time as Barack Obama and Joe Biden was back in 2000 and eight and I was on the oversight committee for the eight years in which they had that presidency. It became more and more common, at least from my perception as time went on. That they would just do things hope going up up against the wall and then seeing if the if the Republicans could get struck down in the courts, and every once a while, they'd be surprised and say, Oh, my gosh, we actually got that through. Because they would never be able to do it legislatively. They would never be able to use the proper balance and tools of power that they've been given, But they just do it and then you have to go to court to pull it and yank it back down. Unfortunately, that's more common. Fauci should go. He should be the subject of an investigation. I do not understand plan why the Democrats who have the House and the Senate aren't probing the origins of covid. They aren't doing serious investigation on the porter and they're really going to just quickly get in and out of this Afghanistan situation. Those three demands Serious investigations. Fauci being the subject of that investigation should either step aside or be forced to step aside. I think he should be fired. Dismissed. I don't have trusted him. But he's there and would be the subject of an investigation. Which is just not right. Do we? Are we have banana Republic? Is there a rule of law for the elites in America today? I think that's you know, there was a great piece written recently that I read, it says That this is what was attracting so many people to the world. The world The the attractant to the United States was the rule of law. But you just wonder. Is there an application of justice? You know, one of the biggest frustrations I had Through the years, I have pointed out problems, people that should have handcuffs, people say, but nothing happens. And you know, they don't give members of Congress handcuffs. Nor do or should they, But you you see this stuff in black and and white like Hunter Biden going back to him. That alleged violation with his handgun. Why is that? Not being prosecuted? Yeah. Why is that not being prosecuted? I don't have good answers to that. Other than You. You know if you're a Biden or Clinton or somebody of a political elite, Yeah. You just don't have to play by the same rules. What should Americans do? They need to be continually vigorous in pointing these things out, stick to the facts. Kentan you to make the case. But these things, you know, they require winning elections. And, um, I wish I had a silver bullet. But you know what? I still believe this is the greatest country on the face of the planet. And that truth, we will prevail, but they got to be vigilant and not listen to this woke crowd that wants to shoot them down at every level. I just hope America gets collectively gets attacked together and says, Yeah. Rule laws. Little bit more important than making sure that you know Hunter Biden is a comfortable life.

"Mayer. We've discovered the lost language of bacon. Listen. Yeah. You look great. What's up? Yeah, I'm gonna eat you. Keep it Oscar and discover the lost language of bacon right as we continue Peter Sweitzer Eric Eggers, both with the Government Accountability Institute. You know this? This is where it really bothers me, You know, Imagine how do we get up 300% covid cases from last year. Um, how is that possible? What have they done wrong? You know, now it's going to be. We're going to have one size medicine fits all. Well, I interviewed a 19 year old girl. That in 2019, Peter Schweizer that got, uh, vaccination. And she was paralyzed for over her a month. Her dream was to go to BYU in Hawaii. This is not a BYU rule. This is a state rule in Hawaii and she couldn't get a medical exemption. Because of her unique medical condition. That prevented her from taking a vaccine and go to the school, even though she was willing perfectly willing to socially distance masked whoever anyway and follow all the rules and all the protocols out there. You know, what do we do when people are trying to follow science and I believe in science? I even believe in the science of vaccination. I just don't agree that I can tell people what to do. Because I'm not there, Doctor. I mean, do you think I'm qualified to tell people what to do to be with with with medicine? Peter, let's be honest. No, you don't. Because I'm not. Yeah, And But here's the important thing that you recognize Sean, which is That there are limitations to what you know, and you don't want to compel other people to do things when there is some ambiguity. So you know, for example, you mentioned the Cleveland Clinic study about people that have had a covid in the past that their resistance to the disease is greater. Than those that have had the vaccine. They're better off. The problem is, is that that science is in the Cleveland Clinic study. There's been studies out of Israel and elsewhere that confirm that these are bona fide peer reviewed medical studies. That's essentially ignored by the Biden ministrations, the CDC the point being that they want to mandate vaccines, and there's no exemption, even if you can show that you had covid and that you have, I think what they called T cell immunity. Um which is you had it and you have resistance to it. You're in a sense in a better position. Been somebody who hasn't had it, but they're not allowing those exemptions. It's the sort of typical thing we get from government. Unfortunately, which is one size fits all. And I think the bottom line, Sean, you've said it before. I certainly believe it. You've got to take this disease seriously. There are some really powerful tools like the vaccine that can be brought to bear. But there's notion that the government basically wants people to be quiet to fall in line. Exactly Listen to exactly what they say. Don't listen to somebody from Johns Hopkins. Don't listen to somebody from the Cleveland Clinic. It's part of the reason we have people now that are distrustful of what voucher you saying he's changed his story. He's not been honest in his has not been honest, He wasn't honest. And he was told on January 31st 2020 that it looked like this virus was manipulated in a lab, The friend of the frenzy of emails that were revealed that he was scared to death, it would be discovered that the NIH funded The Wuhan Virology lab, and that gain of function research and coronavirus studies he knew was taking place there. And now, of course, the 900 page at the 900 page pages released by the intercept. Expose. All of vouches lies. It looks like the American people helped fund the gain of function research that led to the coronavirus from the Wuhan virology lab that we were paying for. But God forbid we, you know, he gets charged. He gets charged with lying under oath. Alright, Peter. Thank you. Peter Schweizer. Eric, Eric Gers. Thank you Both. Quick break right back. This is the best of the best. This is the Sean Hannity show. Is the left brain washed well, they're cheering for socialism.

"Want to be a part of the program we expect at the top of the hour that Joe Biden. I guess he doesn't like to work at night. I don't think he hasn't done a nighttime press conference. They had a hard time adjusting his peak cog cognitive hours during the campaign of your call. If there was a debate if there was the DNC convention speech, whatever it happened to be. He disappeared for six days and I said at the time I said they're adjusting his peak. Cognitive our to the nine PM our only You know as a means of being prepared for the big moment that he has to rise to the occasion because he certainly doesn't have the energy. Let's be honest, He's weak. He's frail, and he's a cognitive mess anyway. Joining us with some insight has been following this very closely. Peter Sweitzer, president of the Government Accountability Institute, host of the drill, down dot com Podcast. Eric Eggers is with us Vice president of the Government Accountability Institute is a co host these to work together 24 7, I guess. Um, but you know here you got to top officials at the FDA resigning in protest over this booster shot or third dose of the vaccine. Ah, you know, And this then gets to the question of Fauci, which we now know he lied about pretty much everything, And he knew a lot that he didn't tell the American people from Day one and he was conflicted on the issue of coronavirus is from Day one, and now it's all there and we'll get to the intercept and we'll get to the emails in a minute. But What's your take on these two FDA officials resigning Peter Well, it's interesting, Sean. Um you know the the claim The argument from the mainstream media when Donald Trump was president was that he was politicizing the process. You know about the vaccine, which Really wasn't true. He was just trying to speed up the process. Um, The reason that these two FDA officials are resigning based on the reporting from politico and others is precisely because the process is being politicized. By the Biden administration. In other words, they're not convinced that they are not certain they are not competent in the idea that these booster shots are necessary or effective. They don't know how healthy they might be. They don't like the fact that the Food and Drug Administration is being pushed to essentially approved this process, and they resigned. As a result. Um you know the fact the matter is Sean that Joe Biden when he was running for president made it sound so simple. He was just going to effectively snap Sort of the bureaucratic fingers of the federal government, and they were going to fix all these problems. We know that the Covid situation is a lot more complicated than that. And now that it is continuing to be a problem that's unfolding all the new cases you talked about, Um, he is pressuring the medical professionals in the government of tablets mint to try to get them. To push things through to basically save himself politically and that to be fair. So far with these breakthrough cases, people are warned about that possibility. But with these breakthrough cases The odds are still very likely that you won't be hospitalized. If you're fully vaccinated in that you won't die if you're fully vaccinated. But it doesn't go into a whole host of other complications that some people have had, Um, one of the things that bothers me the most about this and Peter, I've been very clear. I'm telling everyone take this sucker seriously. I know people that have died. I've seen the worst of this virus. I know people that have survived ventilators barely after 40 days and and have been on Bannon right at death's door. Um And so, but I'm not a doctor. I'm not going to play it on radio or television. In spite of all the pressure brought to bear on me to tell everybody what to do. I'm only urging people to take it seriously because I love my audience. Told, redo their own research take into account their unique medical history. Their current medical condition, talk to their own doctor or doctors and medical professionals they trust And then they're going to have to make their own decision on what's the right decision for them. Um, I also believe in medical privacy, and I believe in doctor patient confidentiality. I guess that that's an antiquated view in America. But the reality is there are people with very rare conditions that can't for whatever reason. Take a vaccine. I've interviewed a number of those people. They never talk. It seems about therapeutics. Um Then you have the whole other issue about. Well, we're following the science, The Cleveland Clinic, highly prestigious Medical University says if you had covid, you don't need any of the vaccines. Are we just going to ignore that science? Because it's not convenient to one particular narrative about the vaccine. We'll ask you, Eric. Yes, I think one of the things that we've explored in our research GI and on the podcast is a perverse incentive structure. Nobody wants to be anti science. Everybody wants to be as safe as possible. But it's also being intellectually honest, possible. And when you look at the dramatic profits that somebody big pharmaceutical companies have made since the Covid era began since the push for vaccines, um you know, I think it begs the question of why some of the remedies some of the things that people don't think to make much money off. Much money off of our dismissed when the things that people big pharmaceutical companies obviously incredibly influential political and otherwise from them, and he might, after they seem to be not only pushed but now renewed, and as you know it We need disturb booster shot over apparently the very vehement protests of FDA officials who resigned right and I think it takes the question of a glitzy what's in the best interest of the people, not just within the best interest of the corporation. You know we've had this is phenomenal Breakthrough cases. One of the things that has frustrated me in this whole process is most people as I can tell you in New York. Especially through throughout 2020. We're told. Okay, you have covid, Uh, you need to do contact tracing need to go home. Isolate yourself from your family. Okay.

"Government Accountability Institute. You know this? This is where it really bothers me, You know, Imagine how do we get up 300% covid cases from last year. Um, how is that possible? What have they done wrong? You know, now it's going to be. We're going to have one size medicine fits all. Well, I interviewed a 19 year old girl. That in 2019, Peter Schweizer, that God, uh, vaccination. And she was paralyzed for over her a month. Her dream was to go to BYU in Hawaii. This is not a BYU rule. This is a state rule in Hawaii and she couldn't get a medical exemption. Because of her unique medical condition. That prevented her from taking a vaccine and go to the school, even though she was willing, perfectly willingness, socially distanced, masked whoever anyway and follow all the rules and all the protocols out there. You know, what do we do when people are trying to follow science, and I believe in science? I even believe in the science of vaccination. I just don't agree that I can tell people what to do. Because I'm not there, Doctor. I mean, do you think I'm qualified to tell people what to do to be with with with medicine? Peter, let's be honest. No, you don't. Because I'm not. And But here's the important thing that you recognize Sean, which is That there are limitations to what you know, and you don't want to compel other people to do things when there is some ambiguity. So you know, for example, you mentioned the Cleveland Clinic study about people that have had a covid in the past that their resistance to the disease is greater. Than those that have had the vaccine. They're better off. The problem is, is that that science is in the Cleveland Clinic study. There's been studies out of Israel and elsewhere that confirm that these are bona fide peer reviewed medical studies. That's essentially ignored by the Biden ministrations, the CDC the point being that they want to mandate vaccines, and there's no exemption, even if you can show that you had covid and that you have, I think what they called T cell immunity. Um which is you had it and you have resistance to it. You're in a sense in a better position. Then somebody who hasn't had it, but they're not allowing those exemptions. It's sort of typical thing we get from government. Unfortunately, which is one size fits all. And I think the bottom line Sean, you said it before. I certainly believe it. You've got to take this disease seriously. There's some really powerful tools like the vaccine that can be brought to bear. But this notion that the government basically wants people to be quiet to fall in line. Exactly Listen to exactly what they say. Don't listen to somebody from Johns Hopkins. Don't listen to somebody from the Cleveland Clinic. It's part of the reason we have people now that are distrustful of what Fauci is saying He's changed his story. He's not been honest in this has not been honest, He wasn't honest and He was told on January 31st 2020 that it looks like this virus was manipulated in a lab, The friend of the frenzy of emails that were revealed that he was scared to death. It would be discovered that the NIH funded the Wuhan virology lab and that gain of function research and coronavirus studies he knew was taking place there. And now, of course, the 900 page at the 900 pages, pages released by the intercept exposed all of vouches lies. It looks like the American people helped fund the gain of function research that led to the coronavirus from the Wuhan virology lab that we were paying for. But God forbid we, you know, he gets charged. He gets charged with lying under oath. Alright, Peter. Thank you. Peter Schweizer, Eric. Eric Garner's Thank you both. Quick.

"Poverty to get to the middle class, of course, is to at least finish high school one, presumably where you can read, write a computer grade level and because of their stuff, standard education, they're not getting it. You know, it's the saddest thing because it's our national treasure, and it's It's not just California is universal. It's happening in every big city and these are the cities and states that have been run by Liberal Democrats for the longest period of time. Um, let me ask you about the covid hypocrisy because you had Gavin Newsom in restaurants when other people other Californians weren't allowed and businesses for shut down, but they weren't shut down for him. Schools were shut down, but not for Gavin's kids who went to this prestigious, uh, private school that had in person learning, but not for most California Children, Just like his kids went to camp when most other Californian kids, you know, didn't have the opportunity to do so. And all it just says after each offenses are I'm sorry. I should have thought about that. Well, that's right. He shut down the state he ignored the science. Sitting up there with the lobbyists that drafted the mandate. They were not wearing mask while telling you to do it. They were not engaging in social differently while coming you to do it, and you're quite right. His own kids were enjoying in person, private education, and he was exempting his own winery for the very mandate. Shut down. I forgot about the winery. Telma tell everybody remind everybody about the winery. Well, you know, Gavin Newsom calls himself an entrepreneur, right? He's an entrepreneur who started Winery High End winery by the way. With getting money, but he calls himself, you know, and, uh, a entrepreneur. He's kind of entrepreneur John. You heard the line born on third base and thought he hit a triple. So my dad came to California without two nickels above together, started Little cafe and got to the middle class. That's a hard story. But Gavin Newsom came from affluence. It lives in affluence. While while shutting down businesses a third of all to more businesses I mentioned are gone forever. These are businesses home by hardworking black, Asian, American and Hispanic people kind of people that people like Gavin Newsom climbed themselves on caring about you know the fact that they are trying to bring in every outside dollar they can into the state and Obama into the state and Kamala Harris back into the state and below sea back into the state. And and Hollywood trying to exert its influence. The amount of money flowing into the coffers of Gavin Newsom's campaign shows a real fear that exists now the polls at different times have had had him upside down. And even it seems like the latest polls have him on a little bit of a bounce. Um, I'm not sure what to make of the polls in this particular race. But I have a question because I believe that a lot of states in 2020 didn't follow the laws where partisan observers watched the vote count start to finish. They didn't have good chain of custody, integrity measures they don't update voter rolls. A lot of states like New York. You don't need any any photo identification or signature verification. I think every state should have that to ensure election integrity and confidence of results. How do you feel about the process that currently exist in California? Well, I'm worried about it. I mean, you didn't add one other thing. You can also print your own ballot here in California. Believe it and that you could print your own ballot. Now what could possibly go wrong? We know about all the shenanigans that took place in 2020 and American people to go to elect dot com. We have a voter integrity project all set up there. If anybody sees anything suspicious, hears anything suspicious, knows about anything to just Go to elect elder dot com. We have our lawyers ready to file lawsuits right away.

"Joe. The rest of us will keep working. You're on the Sean Hannity show. Hi, 25. Now until the top of the hour 809 41, Sean, If you want to be a part of the program we expect at the top of the hour that, uh, Joe Biden. I guess he doesn't like to work at night. I don't think he hasn't done a nighttime press conference. They had a hard time adjusting his peak cognitive hours during the campaign of your recall, If there was a debate, if there was the DNC convention speech, whatever it happened to be, he disappeared for six days. And I said at the time I said they're adjusting his peak. Cognitive our to the nine PM our only you know as a means of being prepared for the big moment that he has to rise. To the occasion. Um, because he certainly doesn't have the energy. Let's be honest is weak. He's frail, and he's a cognitive mess anyway. Joining us with some insight has been following this very closely. Peter Schweizer President of the Government Accountability Institute, host of the drill, down dot com Podcast. Eric Eggers is with US vice president of the Government Accountability Institute is a co host. These two work together, 24 7, I guess. Um, but you know here you got to top officials at the FDA resigning in protest over this booster shot or third dose of the vaccine. Uh, you know, and this then gets to the question of Fauci, which we now know he lied about pretty much everything and he knew a lot. That he didn't tell the American people from day one and he was conflicted on the issue of coronavirus is from Day one, and now it's all there and we'll get to the intercept and we'll get to the emails in a minute. But What's your take on these two FDA officials resigning Peter Well, it's interesting, Sean. You know the the claim The argument from the mainstream media when Donald Trump was president was that he was politicizing the process. You know about the vaccine, which really wasn't true. He was just trying to speed up the process. The reason that these two FDA officials are resigning based on the reporting from politico and others is precisely because the process is being politicized. By the Biden administration. In other words, they're not convinced they are not certain they are not competent in the idea that these booster shots are necessary or effective. They don't know how healthy they might be. They don't like the fact that the include and Drug administration is being pushed to essentially approved this process, and they've resigned. As a result. Um you know, the fact that matter is Sean that that Joe Biden when he was running for president made it sound so simple. He was just going to effectively snap Sort of the bureaucratic fingers of the federal government, and they were going to fix all these problems. We know that the covid situation is a lot more complicated than that. And now that it is continuing to be a problem that's unfolding all the new cases you talked about, Um, he is pressuring the medical professionals in the government establishment to try to get them. To push things through to basically save himself politically and that to be fair. So far with these breakthrough cases, people are warned about that possibility. But with these breakthrough cases The odds are still very likely that you won't be hospitalized. If you're fully vaccinated and that you won't die if you're fully vaccinated. But it doesn't go into a whole host of other complications that some people have had, Um, one of the things that bothers me the most about this and Peter, I've been very clear. I'm telling everyone take this sucker seriously. I know people that have died. I've seen the worst of this virus. I know people that have survived ventilators barely after 40 days, and and I've been on Bannon right at death's door. Um And so, but I'm not a doctor. I'm not going to play it on radio or television. In spite of all the pressure brought to bear on me to tell everybody what to do. I'm only urging people to take it seriously because I love my audience. To redo their own research take into account their unique medical history. Their current medical condition, talk to their own doctor or doctors and medical professionals they trust And then they're going to have to make their own decision on what's the right decision for them. Um, I also believe in medical privacy, and I believe in doctor patient confidentiality. I guess that's an antiquated view in America. But the reality is there are people with very rare conditions that can't for whatever reason. Take a vaccine. I've interviewed a number of those people. They never talk. It seems about therapeutics. Um then you have the whole other issue about. Well, if we're following the science, the Cleveland Clinic highly Prestigious medical University says if you had covid you don't need any of the vaccines. Are we just going to ignore that science? Because it's not convenient to one particular narrative about the vaccine. We'll ask you, Eric. I think one of the things that we've explored in our research at GE, and on the podcast is perverse incentive structure. Nobody wants to be anti science. Everybody wants to be as safe as possible. But it's also being intellectually honest as possible. And when you look at the dramatic profits that some of these big pharmaceutical companies have made since the Covid era began since this push for vaccines, um you know, I think it begs the question of why some of the remedies and some of the things that people don't seem to make much money off. Much money off of our dismissed when the things that people at the big pharmaceutical companies obviously are incredibly influential, politically and otherwise from there may be money after they seem to be not only pushed but now renewed. And, as you noted We need this third booster shot over, apparently the very vehement protests of FDA officials who resigned right and I think it takes the question of Hey, look, let's see what's in the best interest of the people, not just what's in the best interest of the corporation. You know we've had this is phenomenon breakthrough cases. One of the things that has frustrated me in this whole process is most people as I can tell you in New York. Especially through throughout 2020. We're told. Okay, you have covid, Uh, you need to do contact tracing need to go home. Isolate yourself from your family. Okay. If you get a temperature, take Tylenol to lower your temperature. Check your oxygen levels and if it goes below, uh, 90..

Don't i don't care if it's manafort or it's popadopoulos or it's general. Flynn our old friend Or it's roger stone or or any of the people in and around donald trump. I i mean for the very same things and even when worse things happen. Nothing happens to them. I can only conclude jason chavitz and please correct me. If i'm wrong. That america has a dual justice system that equal justice under the law doesn't exist as it used to equal application of our laws certainly doesn't exist I know the the democrats for example. They they want to get to the bottom of january sixth okay they put together their. They're biased commission that has a predetermined outcome and kicked off. People might have a different line of questioning. Like jim banks and jim jordan What about the five hundred seventy four. Riots took place last summer. That they denied never talked about and even offer. Aided in an embedded in from a moral standpoint like kamala harris tweeting out a bell fund to get people out of jail involved in the rioting. But you know. Nearly three thousand cops were hurt We had you know arson all over the place city blocks taken over in some cases but nobody wants a commission on that one. Tell me how that's that. A riot to me is a riot. What happened on the six never happen again. What happened all summer last summer cam happening and either and add on top of that sean The democrats are in control the senate and house. There's not one single investigation leading into the origins of the of the virus. So you know they their ability and desire to get to the truth but the going back to this. I gotta tell you what stunning about this is as inspector general they have badges. They got gun just like fbi agents when they went to go get the telephone guess. What magically disappeared. There were text messages for long periods of time. In question of ages that they know had contact with reporters. Guess what those text messages are now missing and so if you are either way earned more than half. The phones from robert muller's investigation missing also price the price. There's no consequence and the department of justice will actually slapped them handcuffs and charge people not just allow them to retire. Take the full retirement. Do those types of things. This culture is not going to change. This has gotten worse. Not better when you have more than fifty fbi agent you. And i like to talk about how the rank and file thirty six thousand people. You know. i'll do good job. But you know what. I'm starting to look around at that building there in washington. Dc has proved to me that you're a good guy at this point because you are not doing your job. This is systemic. Look i had secret service agents going out to me more than forty of them and inspector general comes out and say what they did is illegal. No what was the secret service going after you for well by the way you know. You're you're somebody that really does need to be watched. Twenty four seven and be honest. I know you for a long time. But i'm kidding. No they dove into my personnel records. They started to spread false lies. Yeah inspector general. No nothing happened to any of these people.

"Fridays is dr g anything friday. We're gonna national security with jim califano of the heritage foundation. We're gonna talk guns. This hour congressman. Andy biggs in the last hour of the show and the baron bars epstein but now man. Who's one of the hottest people to get on this show. Why because he's got a job to do fighting. The swamp creatures uncovering the depth the breadth of the corruption in the swamp. He is truth teller. Extraordinary peter schweitzer. He is of course. The head of the government accountability institute author of amazing works like kennington cash and most recently profiles of corruption. Pete welcome back to america. I it's always degrade to be with. You said my old friend. How are you doing good good. But i'm going to be a little bit rude. Now i'm going to take up Twenty seconds of our interview by reading three sentences from a new report that i dislike you to comment on peter. This is from emma colton fox news dot com the federal prosecutor investigating hunter biden. Taxes reportedly waited until after the election to seek search warrants which stored the public from finding out about the probe delaware's. Us attorney david vice began his probe into the president's son in twenty eighteen but decided last summer to hold off on seeking warrants or issuing a grand jury subpoena in a bid not to let the public know what was happening last sentence. Which of course illustrates the depth of the swamp. Vice is a republican who was appointed during the trump administration. Your reaction peter schweitzer. You know this is the way they handle all investigations right. I mean they're in metal week. Know they always wait a year with roger stone. They always wait or two years. Paul manafort general flynn. They wait a say they don't leak it to the washington post as it's happening. Never no never it never happens. I mean this. This illustrates the point. That that you know. I wanna believe that that still a majority of americans sold to is. That people are just looking for consistency. They're looking for a consistent center. If you're going to do the sorts of things you did in the water stone case then just be consistent when it applies to other people. The problem is that's not what we have We are increasingly a country that has a justice system that has different standards for insiders then for outsiders and if you are in a position of political power political influence it seems to matter whether you have a d. or an are after your name. I never thought i would find myself saying that. But that's what the evidence before shows and it's tragic because once we lose that sense that lady justice blind you know she's she's she's A meeting out justice and she's got her is covered because it's about the crime and the evidence stuff man once we lose that is undermines this wonderful system of justice that we've had is not perfect but it's the best in the world and bat. Is i fear what has happened so so let me ask you the question. We don't realize any of this. We don't do other shows where we send out the questions in advance. We don't do that. Real this live and this may be impolitic. But it's really the burning question for me. And i consider you a friend and i consider you to be a great patriot on you. How do you manage to keep on doing what you do. Peter when you realize the depth of the corruption and the fact that there's just as much corruption on both sides of the aisle greg question seven. I guess what i would say is what other choice do i have. I mean if if if i if i love my country you love your country. Their millions upon millions of people that do You know you can. You can respond to the opposition. You can just to respond to the corruption right either. Getting discouraged getting angry and saying things can't change or you can say you know i'm going to continue doing what i'm doing and i'm gonna fight harder and you know in in a in a way you know. I would say that that what we try to do it so it's a little bit like what paul revere did right He alerted people who the pending threats Now it was not up to. Paul revere to make sure that the that the continental army was ready and that his job was to alert and then to allow patriots You know to to do what they could do to protect the country and that's kind of the situation that we're in so discouraging absolutely but We are going to continue to fight and we go down. We're gonna go down fight. We're going to go down standing on a pile of bras casings. That's my promised. fellow patriots. He is the president of the incredible government accountable. Contr ability institute any book. He's written his worth your wallet. Especially clinton cash and most recently profiles in corruption. Follow him at peter schweitzer on twitter. That's s. c. h. w. w. e. z. Arpita schweitzer pita I don't do devil's advocate. But but let me put it. Thusly what is your response to those. And maybe what we can save democrat voters. They'll just the political who say. Why can't you leave. This hunter biden thing alone. He's not a polit. He's not a politician. He doesn't work for the government he may be a wretched side guy. But it's irrelevant to the political plight of america. Well because i wrote in a twenty eighteen book that was called secret. Empires and it looked at republicans and democrats The corruption in america's increasingly being offshore. And what on me by offshore two things number one you know the days in which a congressman or a senator or some political figure takes money in a shoebox and hide it somewhere. That's the old unsophisticated way of getting paid. What you do now. Is you set up a family member. The family member cashes in so it's sort of offshore. They're getting paid. And you're ultimately going to benefit and we're going to show. How joe ben. Joe biden is benefiting from one hundred five's work but you offshore so that's the first Point the the the the activities that hunter biden is engaged in and the enrichment that has taken place for. The guards is absolutely bound in connected with superglue to the fact that his father is in politics. You cannot separate them but the second reason sav is that the kind of corruption were dealing with. Just you know. We're all used to and and i'm not saying it's a good thing it's just you get used to. You know the old corruption where somebody who has a paving company gets a contract because his cousin sits on the county council. That's the kind of corruption we're used to. It's bad it's wrong. What we're dealing with here is globalised. Corruption every talks about how we have a global economy you have globalist who want to have a internationally governed Planet earth will corruption has been globalised to and what that means is. We're not talking about hunter by getting payoffs from somebody on wall street or from an oil company in houston or or you know Some law firm in los angeles. We're talking about. The president of the united states in his family getting deals from our adversaries and rivals on the global stage. So why are they doing. Yeah and let me run this one past you. So my my radio buddy. Chris plante has coined the phrase the art. Show loophole the idea that this this this crack smoking quote unquote painter. Called hunter biden is not being paid half a million dollars for his quote unquote paintings. But it's okay because nobody knows the identity of the people buying these garbage quote unquote pieces of art isn't that is not just graft and corruption using fake paintings lily ab -solutely sad but i mean here's the thing you probably thought you never hear me say this but i gave bill and hillary clinton some credits because when bill clinton Left the white house and his wife was in the senate became secretary of state. They said you know what we're gonna go and we're gonna rake in all this foreign money but we're going to at least disclose who's paying bill to give these high paid speeches and they did to their credit now. They missed son which was a problem but the point is they did. Disclose it The biden approach on. These paintings is exactly the opposite. Which is we're going to deal with ethically by not telling you who's buying it and just trust us we're gonna make sure is it and go okay. Is it vladimir. Putin is it An iranian mullahs. Is it. xi jinping is it a member of the mexican cartels. Don't worry you won't know. therefore it's purely ethical. Not a problem is the art show loophole. Chris plante is right. Find out the depth of the corruption. There's pita says what else are we going to do. We're going to keep on fighting whatever it takes. His the president of the government accountability institute. The latest book is profiles in corruption. A nice choice of title given the connection. Jfk follow him onto a key thing what you do. God bless pita. Can't wait for the next book. I'm sebastian gorka next. It's national security and foreign policy with the one and only jim califano relief factor if your daily pain and have tried everything else only to fail to.

"To set up marijuana dispensaries under state law. Let's not forget pot is still illegal at the federal level. But just this week, three top Democrats in the Senate said they'll be introducing legislation in a matter of weeks that would end federal prohibition of marijuana. This follows a similar bill passed in the House just two months ago. With support from both Democrats and Republicans. A new federal law could significantly change the game in an exploding industry that it appears maybe growing Too fast for authorities to keep up. I'm Christine Purcell reporting Pretty interesting. Peter Schweizer, author of Secret Empires, and Eric Angers is with us. He's a research director that both with the Government Accountability Institute, he authored the book. Eric did fraud How the left plans to steal the next election. By the way, publish that in 2018 welcome both of you back to the program. You know what I noticed? You know, it's kind of laughable, Peter because you can't even look at the lottery is an example. Now, if you have the you know these crime families and they're running the numbers that's illegal. We can have that That's bad for society. But what's the lottery? It's the government quote Monopoly monopoly on on betting. We see more more states now as a means of garnering revenue. We're gonna air mark this money for education. On top of all the money. They're taxing us anyway. And then we find out. Not all the money goes to education, but usually the General fund. So between gambling which is now expanding now, the the the weed industry if you want to call it that Is expanding and Meanwhile, it's monopoly and they'll end up making more money and government And then I'm sure sweetheart deals will happen behind the scenes on day care, not that everyone else that would do it would be considered doing something illegal. Yeah, You're right, Sean. I mean, look, I'm one of those people who thinks legalizing marijuana is not a good thing. It has a lot of terrible consequences for society. When I have friends who are libertarian, too, You know, believe it should be freely available, and when you talk to them, their basic attitude is Well, you know, people should be able to grow it and to be able to use it. But what's happening in the states is not that what's happening in this? The states is it's being a legalized. But then the politicians meaning most times the governor's sometimes other state cabin officials. They get to pick and choose who is the one that's going to get the gold mine? It's going to get a limited license in a controlled market on is going to be able to actually sell marijuana legally and guess what? By virtue of the fact that they get to pick who gets the licenses. It's not just the state government who were going to make money. It's actually the politicians themselves and what Eric's done in this report. Shawn is shown from Andrew Cuomo's New York to California to the rest of the country. The people who are making the money are the politicians, the politicians, family members, lobbyists connected to the politicians. They're all getting rich through this legalized scheme. And so it's not really about personal freedom. It's not about medical marijuana. It's about politicians finding yet another pocket in which they can enrich themselves. Eric, you wrote this piece. You've you've done the deep dive into this. Why don't you walk us through the intricacies of what Peter just laid out here? Andre how This is about money in their pocket, too. Well, absolutely. And I think a smudge as the article that you referenced to begin the segment. How the marijuana industry saying Hey, now the Democrats are in charge. We stand to do very well. The reality is that we've uncovered in this report is that actually, Democrats do really well as a result of the marijuana industry itself. Now John Boehner is a notable exception if at the federal level they do, in fact legalize marijuana John Boehner because of his past several years of service, lobbying on behalf of the marijuana company stands to make up to $20 million. He's hardly the only prominent politician who stands to cash in or had who has been cashing in in your state shot of New York Governor Cuomo in 2017, U, had been hard pressed to find somebody with more against the legalization of recreational cannabis. Then Andrew Cuomo. Yet here we are. Just two years later, he's gonna total 1 80. That's one of the questions. We sort of investigating this report. What? Well, what changed? Um, over a million dollars worth of campaign donations and lobbying efforts is one of things that change for Andrew Cuomo. Also, he hired his chief of staff there, brother and Father works for a lobbying company that represents Marijuana companies. And so I think you know one the big takeaway for us. In addition to the idea that it's just, I think in agree just breach of the public trust. The public officials have friends and family. They're making money off of public policy. The idea that when the corona virus epidemic, Okay hit, and we saw American life as we know it end in March of last year, I couldn't send my kids to school anymore. I don't know about you. I couldn't go to church anymore. But in 30 of the states that issued a stay of home order of one variety another they allowed cannabis dispensaries to stay open. So I think you know when you follow the money is Peter's so great about always remind this to do. I think that helps explain why other basic and vital functions of American society ceased. But the part industry state open It's an amazing story, and I go back and I used the I think it's a legitimate example. If you look at, for example, the battle against organized crime over the years Well, what were they involved in? They were involved in drugs, Prostitution, gambling, loansharking, etcetera. Right, Peter? All right, so just that we watch with the tobacco industry, okay? A lot of people. Lot of lawyers got very rich with lawsuits and also the governor. Governments now tax these things to death. I mean, you could really trace the entire Eric Gardner situation to Here's a guy why wire police resource is being used to tow. You know, and wasted on a guy that selling loosey cigarettes, he's That's all he's selling, because the crackdown is about money, and the money is is if they're bringing Cartons and cartons of cigarettes into a state like like New York. They're not getting their cut of the action. So gambling is bad and illegal. Running. The numbers is bad and illegal, but the lottery's okay sports betting is now going to be okay. You can't sell drugs unless the government decides they want to sell it. Make a lot of money. No, You're right, Sean. I mean, that's that's seen here. Problem is that too many of our political leaders and unfortunately people on both sides of the aisle. Recognize all of this stuff is a business. I mean, one of things we noticed in researching the cannabis industry is the promises always been that if you legalize marijuana, it gets rid of people selling it illegally. In other words, it's going to hurt these criminal gangs who have made all this money for marijuana sales, right? Well, The problem is precisely what you said earlier in a state like California they tax marijuana Legal lease sold marijuana so high that the criminal gangs that are selling marijuana really have not seen a change in their business. In fact, they're doing better because it's now legal to possess it. You're not going to get thrown into jail. But the price of the legally sold one is so high because of state taxes that these criminal gangs are not being damaged it all they're doing quite well. And so this, I think, is one of the most important thing that all Americans need to consider..

"Thanks for being with us. Yes, our predictions Super Bowl Sunday, coming up a little later in the program today. And we're gonna invite back to the program in a few seconds here. Our friend Peter Schweitzer and also another friend, Eric. Congress is with us. And so we have the Hunter Biden book. Pretty amazing, right? Yeah. Um, I wonder if he's going to talk about oligarchs from Russia and Kazakhstan and Chinese nationals and the Bank of China deal in Berea Small Holdings deal like I tend to doubt it anyway. So after the Senate runoff election Which gave this the Democrats you know, they're slim majority and then installing yes, even people that support marijuana legalization and the upper chamber. But putting that aside Anyway. I literally call my bankers and I said, guys, if this is going to change, let's do an overnight offering. Now this is a quote, cure. I think you're a leaf is how you pronounce it. It's America's largest cannabis company over 16 million shares on the market overnight and brought in $300 million in equity and debt sales in under 24 hours. I mean, this is serious, real business. I don't think it's good for the country. I don't think it's good for America. My own humble opinion separate apart from medicinal use of marijuana, whatever. Um, but there's a bigger issue here. Now. Remember, Peter writing the best selling book, secret empires and, by the way, is now currently being featured in the film, writing the drag and exposing the Biden Family two ties to China. Remember the Government Accountability Institute there. Their mission is to investigate and expose crony capitalism, you misuse of taxpayer money and other governmental corruption and malfeasance, and by the way, they go after Republicans and they go after Democrats Now with that said, Let's let's play a little bit. This is from ABC News Chattanooga about the Government Accountability Institute reporting on exposing corruption. In this marijuana field. Now why does it matter? Um, I don't really care what some experts say that have a political agenda or politicians. See, this is a huge weight it taxi even more and profit even more like they profit from every single pack of cigarettes ever sold. But it gets it gets into the belly of the beast that the societal implications for these decisions are meaningless. It's all about how much money they can take into advance a socialist utopia. Here's that Chattanooga report. Sometimes top lawmakers in Washington say it's time to end the federal ban on marijuana, but it's already legal in some form or fashion in the vast majority of the country. So how is the tide shifted so quickly? As Sinclair National correspondent Christine Brazil reports it could be a combination of changing public opinion and growing benefits to elected.
