Exxon-Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson: Good Choice for Secretary of State.
Donald has trumped the world with his choice for Sec. State. Although, he had trotted out a number of possible candidates, Donald held one back. The one he never talked about publicly, Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon-Mobil, is a very good choice for Sec State.
Rex has negotiated very complex oil/gas deals all over the world. According to Trump, Rex “is a world class player.” I cannot argue with that assertion.
Rex received the “Order of Friendship” from Putin for having been a loyal partner in business. Some people find that offensive. I don’t! If someone has been loyal to the Russians [Rosneft] and still manages to maintain his political/financial integrity, I don’t find that ‘dangerous’ or even ‘disconcerting’.
Rex has a successful history of negotiating with a myriad of different countries including Mexico, Qatar, UAE, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Morocco, et.al. Invariably, Rex has also been a very useful ‘agent of influence’ in the parlance of the intelligence community as a highly experienced transnational negotiator. It’s been quite a few decades that Americans had anyone who was as well prepared as Rex has been.
For some time now, our previous POTUSs have had what I call ineffectual affirmative action candidates. Bill Clinton chose Madeleine Albright, a woman without any significant talent whatsoever. Bush Jr picked the “political general” Colin Powell whose rise through the Republican establishment was in large part due to his skin color and not some major past achievement. He did assure the world at the UN that there was anthrax in a small medicine bottle as the non-existing evidence of Sadam Hussein’s lethality.
Next Bush Jr, doubling down on the black card, anointed a complete pathological liar, Condi Rice, a Stanford prof whose past achievements in foreign policy were zippo just like the other candidates. Along came Obama, a wistful CIA operative with a history of some covert travels to Pakistan and some other esoteric locations in Kenya and elsewhere in Africa. Of course, he chose a white woman, Hillary R Clinton, who happened to have even less talent than anyone who had proceeded her. She was proud of the fact that she had travelled to 120 countries on our taxpayers’ dollars.
HRC lost the 2008 election to Obama. Once again, HRC was literally ‘screwed’ by Bill Clinton, who made certain that HRC would never be able to become POTUS, thanks to his ceaseless forays into the land of fornication.
Finally, we get John Kerry, the crypto-Jew who has never met a wealthy, alcoholic woman whom he did not want to marry just for her inheritance. His ignoble past will be written in the Sanskrit letters of the Lost Ark where he gave away more cash [USD, EU, YEN, etc.], credits, and financial goodies to make the K street whores content for the rest of their collective lives.
Even the so-called “distinguished ambassador”, Thomas Pickering, like many other State Dept. flunkies, began to lobby for years to eliminate the effective economic sanctions on Iran. They did this for huge sums of money paid to them by our military/industrial complex, including Boeing, which had just culminated a multi-billion $$ letter of intent with Iran.
One can be certain that, unlike our former public officials in the State Dept, we do not have to worry that the multi-millionaire Rex will sell any of his convictions for a few shekels.
Nor is he an affirmative action candidate …. Oops I am mistaken there. Rex Tillerson is a white, Christian, heterosexual male who had even been an Eagle Scout. Of course, he is now a minority candidate.
How fortunate for America!
Good luck, Rex!
