Lew links politics and travel by working for a month in the 2018 mid-term elections for Dr. Kim Schrier for Congress in Washington state (a win!), then working for five other political campaigns down the East Coast. He investigates the high school peccadillos of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and cracks a previously mysterious code in “Bart’s” (Brett’s) infamous high school year book. He recounts his run-ins with the firm Huawei around the world from Malawi to Samoa to Vanuatu – this firm is viewed by many US agencies as an arm of Chinese military intelligence.

In 2019, Lew created a strategy for winning the 2020 Presidential election (but this strategy was ignored by prominent Democrats – sigh!). A year later, he developed a list of key detailed research questions needed to evaluate the numerous problems with the response to the Covid 19 pandemic. See below for the relevant documents.
