Biden’s New Chief of Staff Looks Like a Rich Corporate Vulture

Fox News reports that much of Jeff Zients Wikipedia page was scrubbed when he was vying for the job of Obama COVID csar. They say much of it is back now, although the comment about him likely being a Republican is gone. From what we’ve seen of Jeff Zients so far, the Left can have him.

He’s another Romney-like corporatist who wanted the US to pay for vaccines globally.

What we think we are seeing is the dangerous marriage of corporations and the government. Mussolini missed out on this opportunity – born too soon. People should be very concerned about Wall Street-DC ties.

For all the Democrat talk about hating multi-millionaires and billionaires, he’s extraordinarily rich and appears to be more of a vulture than a capitalist.

HE’S COMING THROUGH THE DC-WALL STREET REVOLVING DOOR

Zients worked in management consulting for Mercer Management Consulting and Bain & Company and then was a chief operating officer of DGB Enterprises.

He is the founder and a managing partner in privately-held Portfolio Logic LLC, an investment firm primarily focused on pediatric healthcare and business services companies.

Zients is the former chairman (2001–2004), chief operating officer (1996–1998), and chief executive officer (1998–2000) of Advisory Board Company and former chairman (2000–2001) of Corporate Executive Board. Both companies were founded by David G. Bradley and they made Zients and Bradley multimillionaires.

Don’t you have to be a vulture to get as far as he has?

He was a member of the board of directors of XM Satellite Radio until its 2008 merger. He was a board member at Sirius XM Radio until his Senate confirmation and is a current board member of Revolution Health Group, which is a holding company investing in consumer-driven healthcare, Best Practices which outsources emergency medical services, and Timbuk2 Designs, a retailer of backpacks, apparel and messenger bags.

In 2005, he worked to bring Major League Baseball back to Washington with venture capitalist Fred Malek forming the Washington Baseball Club, one of eight or nine groups vying to buy the Washington Nationals. The club included Colin Powell, AOL founding CEO James Kinsey, attorney Vernon JordanDarrell Green formerly of the Washington Redskins, Fannie Mae chairman Franklin Raines and others.[3] Malek was going to be the managing partner for the first three years when Zients would take over. They came close to owning the team but lost to another group led by the Lerner family.

He’s a vulture capitalist, and a threat. His ties to Wall Street and the revolving door of corporatism and government are alarming.

He has twenty years of experience and specializes in advising healthcare companies on business practices. Undoubtedly, they all conform to Wall Street’s ideals.

He’s a rich Democrat vulture who appears to have flexible ethical principles in that he is willing to hide what he is if it benefits him. Vulture! He’s perfect for Biden and the climate-vaccine wars.

This is a guy with a poli sci degree who rose up quickly through consulting firms. He had to have connections.

In the beginning Obama preached, made many promises and criticized the elites. He promised to not hire lobbyists or big banking people. He then stacked his administration with the biggest set of elitist wheeler dealers ever. One example I can think of is Geithner.

The question is: who really chose him?

He is a natural fit with the prevailing crowd…not really a choice but more of a ‘blending in’…
