Why a Biden Crony Wanted to Punch Me

Over the past decade, I have reported extensively on Joe Biden’s lifelong milking of his entrenched swamp career for the benefit of his family — including his promotion of government-subsidized Amtrak rail boondoggles. During his tenure as vice president in the Obama administration, Biden fronted a $53 billion high-speed train initiative. He installed friends and family inside the agency while eliminating longtime fiscal watchdogs looking out for taxpayers.

In 2009, I spotlighted how veteran Amtrak inspector general Fred Weiderhold was abruptly “retired” — just as the government-subsidized rail service faced mounting complaints about its meddling in financial audits and probes.

Biden’s lobbyist son, Hunter, was sitting on the Amtrak board of directors when Weiderhold was pushed out.

Eleanor Acheson, super-attorney and friend of Joe, was Amtrak’s vice president and general counsel … also hired Biden’s former Senate staffer Jonathan Meyer as her deputy general counsel. Meyer called it a “happy coincidence.”
