Red Handed

Peter Schweitzer - 2022

Read about all the financial entanglements of our business, political and academic leaders with the communist government of China. It is truly astonishing to see how close so many of our leaders are to the number one threat to our long-term security.

See how the Biden family relationships play out with China and then move on to learn about Senator Feinstein and her husband, Speaker Pelosi, and her family, and Mitch McConnell and his wife. There does not seem to be any end to it. And there is lots more with the Bush family, Kissinger, Albright, and much of our diplomatic core.  It is like a giant web of transactions that play out in favor of China every time and tend to weaken our position in the world.

Then keep reading about the Wall Street connections with many of the very largest firms including Blackstone, Goldman, Bridgewater, Blackrock and a whole lot more. Plus the big Tech companies are also very intertwined with the Chinese government and business.  You will also see how close many of our universities are with the Chinese – some of which is just startling.

Virtually every player mentioned in the book regularly parrots the speaking points of the Chinese government never spouting a single word of criticism yet they are the same people who regularly criticize our country. There is not a peep out of any of them about the Uighur concentration camps.

If you are a patriotic American I guarantee this book will get you fired up. The author is president of the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI) and does offer suggestions about reigning in this mess in the last chapter.
