April 27 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Come join us for a special luncheon with our featured speaker Peter Schweizer who is the President of the Government Accountability Institute and a best-selling author. From 2008/2009 he was a consultant to the Office of Presidential Speechwriting in the White House. He has also served as a member of the Ultraterrorism Study Group at the U.S. government’s Sandia National Laboratory and is a former consultant to NBC News. His books have been translated into eleven languages and include several New York Times or Washington Post bestsellers.
Peter’s latest book, Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends was #1 on the New York Times best-seller’s list. HiIs previous book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How Foreign Governments and Businesses made Bill and Hillary Rich became a New York Times best-seller and spurred independent reporting by multiple mainstream media outlets.
Peter is also the author of the book Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets. Both Extortion and his previous book, Throw Them All Out were New York Times best-sellers and were featured on CBS’s 60 Minutes.
His other nonfiction books include Reagan’s War (Doubleday, 2002), which the Washington Post praised as “A fascinating, well-written, useful and important look at one of the three or four most important American political leaders of the 20th century. 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.”
