Fail to the Chief

7/10/2024
As Biden dead-enders battle with Democrats trying to push the President off of the Democratic ticket, investigative journalist Peter Schweizer says he’s seen enough: “Joe Biden will not be the Democratic nominee,” Schweizer says on the most recent episode of the Drill Down podcast. “He will be forced to step down by the big money.” Schweizer and co-host Eric Eggers, fresh from guest-hosting Sean Hannity’s radio show, note the pledges of loyalty to Biden from left-wing Democrats such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York contrast sharply with rising voices of ten party moderates in Congress, many of them senior members, calling for Biden to step aside. Sen. John Tester (D-MT), who is in a tough re-election fight this Fall, is among those calling for Biden to pack it in. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Mumble that Shook the World

7/2/2024
After President Joe Biden’s disastrous performance in the debate last week, Democratic politicos have been frantically gaming out alternatives to a Biden candidacy against former President Donald Trump. The media wing of the Democratic Party, shocked by Biden’s feeble performance, has editorialized for the 81-year-old Biden to step aside. Once-reliable media mouthpieces such as Joe Scarborough of MSNBC, who just weeks ago told his viewers that the octogenarian was “the best Biden ever,” walked it all back the morning after the debate and glumly observed, “if [Biden] were CEO, and he turned in a performance like that, would any corporation in America keep him on as CEO?” Learn more about your ad choices.

Woke Boeing has Abandoned Excellence

6/27/2024
Boeing Co. has had more than its share of struggles in the past few years. The airplane and aerospace manufacturing giant has become a national joke owing to quality problems on its commercial aircraft that resulted in bolts missing or loose on cabin doors and other mishaps. Most recently, Boeing is being called to account by Congress for problems related to the Starliner, which recently got stuck at the International Space Station. For Peter Schweizer, host of The Drill Down, Boeing’s problems are personal. He grew up in the Seattle area, where his father, an immigrant from Switzerland, worked as an engineer at Boeing for more than 30 years designing wing flaps and the hydraulic components that operate them. Boeing in the 1970s and 1980s was a different company, before its merger with aerospace company McDonnell-Douglas, but he remembers a proud company pursuing excellence and innovation in everything it did.

Illegal Immigration as Election Tampering, with Kris Kobach

6/19/2024
Two connected news stories from the past week show how illegal immigration into the United States is changing the country, and that the Biden administration seems to want it that way. Mexico’s National Institute of Migration reported this week that between January and May of this year, nearly 1.4 million undocumented immigrants from a staggering 177 countries traveled through Mexico to the United States. At the same time, the Biden administration announced a new policy that will grant legal protections to about 500,000 illegal immigrants already in the United States against deportation, if they are spouses of citizens.

Hunter Biden Convicted

6/12/2024
The big news this week was Hunter Biden’s conviction by a Delaware jury on three federal felony gun charges. For Peter Schweizer, though, that looks more like pulling over a bank robber to give him a speeding ticket. The jury took three hours to agree on guilty verdicts for all charges in what proved a cut-and-dry case. Hunter Biden bought a gun, then lied on the background form by checking “no” when asked if he was a drug user, and possessed the gun while addicted to crack cocaine. The judge said Hunter, the son of President Joe Biden, will be sentenced within the usual 120 days, which would fall prior to the November election. Learn more about your ad choices.

Masters of Corruption: The Drill Down Interviews a Whistleblower

5/29/2024
The Deep State is real– a swamp full of disease regardless of who is in office. Like any swamp, it festers because it doesn’t move. But when reformers are appointed to run offices or agencies within the swampy backwaters of the Deep State, swamp creatures move like lightning. They go after the reformers. The Drill Down’s guest on the most recent episode, Prof. Mark Moyar, has the scars to prove it. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

China's Hand on American Campuses

5/8/2024
Pro-Hamas protests at universities around the country exposed the hidden organizers who are buying the tents, printing the signs, and in many cases, paying professional protesters to incite and radicalize students. Various campus student groups and pro-Palestinian organizations receive funding from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which also pay for their students to attend American schools. But there are other, even more troubling funders of student activism and campus unrest. Most prominent among them? The Chinese Communist Party. The most recent episode of The Drill Down explores the hidden hand of Beijing in the campus upheavals. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

SCHWEIZER: Biden's "Sinister but Effective" Campaign Strategy is Lawfare

4/30/2024
The Biden administration is using federal government resources, and taxpayer money, to conduct the sort of mudslinging that has traditionally been done by political campaigns. The tactic is known as “lawfare.” That’s the focus of the most recent episode of The Drill Down, where hosts Peter Schweizer and Eric Eggers go into the weeds to show how the Biden administration is coordinating all four of the legal prosecutions against Biden’s opponent in the November presidential election, former President Donald Trump.

Committee Report Validates: Blood Money” Findings

4/23/2024
A new report by the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has validated a key claim in Peter Schweizer’s latest book, Blood Money – finding persuasive evidence that China has been subsidizing the manufacturing and exporting of illicit fentanyl precursor chemicals and other synthetic narcotics through tax rebates and other means. Schweizer welcomed the validation of his book’s central theme --that Communist China is at war with the United States, poisoning American youth with fentanyl, American minds with TikTok, American streets with automatic weapons, and American health with engineered viruses like COVID-19.

Biden-Connected Chinese Gangster Left Off Sanctions List

4/2/2024
The Government Accountability Institute just discovered that one of the most notorious Chinese gangsters, a man known as “White Wolf,” was somehow left off a 2021 executive order by President Joe Biden listing persons and companies sanctioned against doing business here. That may be because “White Wolf” has connections. Peter Schweizer and co-host Eric Eggers welcome Price Sukhia, the GAI researcher who made this discovery, to the most recent episode of The Drill Down.

TikTok is Part of China's "Cognitive Warfare" on the US

3/20/2024
The revelations about China’s “cognitive warfare on America found in Peter Schweizer’s newest book, “Blood Money,” continue to spur action in Washington. In the past week, the House Government Oversight Committee has announced an investigation into China’s ongoing efforts to infiltrate and influence the US. And the full House just overwhelmingly passed a bill that would force the owners of TikTok to divest the online app or be banned in the US. That bill moves to the Senate where its prospects are less certain. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

CALLING OUT CHINA: Former DEA Agent Derek Maltz Praises Schweizer’s "Blood Money"

3/12/2024
“Peter Schweizer's new book names China’s fentanyl strategy after a Chinese proverb: "Murder with a borrowed knife." On this week’s episode of The Drill Down, Schweizer and co-host Eric Eggers speak to Derek Maltz, the former Special Agent in Charge of Special Operations at the Department of Justice and the Chief of the New York Drug Enforcement Task Force. In his work, Maltz saw that "borrowed knife" from the sharp end.
