Tillerson for Secretary of State

Chuck Johnson and company score a reporting coup:
ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson is set to be nominated for the position of Secretary of State on Tuesday, according to a source close to the highest levels of President-elect Donald J. Trump’s transition team. The source tells GotNews that Trump-hating failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney is “not going to get it,” while Tillerson’s chances of being nominated are “100%.”

The public announcement of Tillerson’s nomination will come Tuesday, according to the source.

Tillerson is the chairman and president of ExxonMobil and has been CEO for nearly 11 years. He worked his way up to the top post since joining the company in 1975 as an engineer.

ExxonMobil is a multinational oil and gas corporation and one of the largest and most profitable companies in the world.

Tillerson was called the “worst Secretary of State contender” by The Washington Post for his and his company’s ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
I have no idea if it's true or not, and I know literally nothing about Tillerson, but if the Jeff Bezos blog hates him, he can't be all bad.

One leftist complains: "If Tillerson pick is accurate, Trump's path is now clear. Corporate statism combined with aggressive white Christian supremacy."

Sounds pretty good to me, so long as the corporate statism is corporate nationalism.

Neat selection.

Anyone who starts as a garden-variety engineer at a major company and makes it all the way to CEO is a man of extraordinary talent and work ethic.

I'm liking Trump's unexpected picks; keeps his enemies off-balance, and largely rejects throwing any bones to the cuckservatives.

(The lone exception is Nikki Haley to the UN, but the UN is a crappy globalist organization that barely matters now and will soon become entirely irrelevant)

@SteelPalm - That removed an antagonistic gov from office, promoted her to a BS no-power position dealing with the worst scum on the planet, and replaced her with a pro-Trump gov. Now she has to take direction from Trump (she appears to be competent) and he can dispatch her whenever he wants. He doesn't really have to 'deal' with the UN, just keep them talking at arm's length. They can make demands on her and she can be the ignored concern troll. Seems a great move to me.

This is beginning to confirm Ann C's analysis that Jeff Sessions is the only token appnt made to acknowledge Trump's base and platform. All others represent a surrender to GOPe: plutocracy, neoconnery, or vagueness (ominous of lurking SJW sympathies or general weakness). Why not Rohrabacher? Where are Tancredo, Kobach, Duncan Hunter, Pete Wilson, Virgil Goode, Steve King, Michelle Bachman, David Vitter, or Jim Webb? The hour is getting late & it won't be possible to "look on the bright side" of the situation any longer.

The SoS was originally considered to be a or the most important Cabinet position, when America was weak and keeping us out of wars with major powers was existential.

Keeping us out of a war with Russia, the only nation that can end the US in 30 minutes, is after all one of the things we voted for Trump. If he has a working relationship with Putin, and hasn't lost too much money for ExxonMobile in his dealings, that's a plus. And relevant to much of the rest of the job, the CEO of such an oil giant can't be parochial. Starting out as an engineer is a plus in my book as well.

2) He may want a CEO of a big company in that job for the right skills to clean up the State Department swamp.

3) Breitbart is indicating Bolton may be chosen as his deputy. He could be the attack dog at the State Department when the President needs a good bark.

It could also all be a trial balloon. President-elect Trump seems to know what he is doing, as usual.

Weak Sauce Steel Palm. Very weak. If there isn't a scintilla of evidence that an appointment had the fortitude to be critical of the open borders chaos of the past 20 yrs, then why shouldn't one be rightfully suspicious? Trump didn't win by running on a CATO platform, or advocate for rootless cosmopolitans who serve the agenda of globalists [most likely scenario they are simply cowards who adhere to the "Bland Bargain" that it is "gutsy" or "iconoclstic" to champion Kempian supply side economics or flat taxes]. The base wants sovereignty & Teddy Roosevelt Americanism goddamit, not more tax cut wonkery or sugar highs from bursts of cheap plastic shit at China Mart.
And any of those names listed would be 10x better than a Puzder, Mnuchin & probably a Tillerson. Jeez, even frickin Ralph Nader who at least had the guts to call out many Fortune 500 American CEOs on their lack of allegiance to the USA would be a better choice.

Rex is an enigma to me. In his personal life, he's a devout Christian who is very active in his church and even teaches Bible study classes. But he's shied away from applying that to his role at ExxonMobile, and has never challenged the "good corporate citizenship" ethos of the Fortune 500 that reigns in corporate America, which has been a disappointment. For example, ExxonMobile was one of the companies who threatened to cut support of the Boy Scouts of America for excluding homosexuals. ExxonMobile also joined in condemning the State of North Carolina for trying to keep men out of girls' restrooms, showers and locker rooms. Corporate activism like that is extremely disappointing, to say the least. So Rex has talked the talk, but not walked the walk. I'll have to keep an open mind, watch him in his new role, and hope that he takes to this new role better than he took to his old one, politically.

As the biggest oil company in the world, Exxon Mobil has more experience in international relationships than probably any other company in the world. They are involved in exploration and development projects all over the world and especially in the developing countries. As CEO, Tillerson probably has more real world experience in dealing in international relationship than anyone at the state department, let alone any of the political appointees who usually get the job of Secretary of State.

Trump knows what he's doing here in selecting Tillerson.

The MSM, which is utterly corrupt as far as I'm concerned, has called Trump's appointments as the worse they could be. This is because they are people with real-world experience whom, by definition, come from outside the DC/beltway milieu. As such, they are not parasites like the DC/beltway and MSM media are. Hence the MSM whines and moans.

Yes. Real engineering. Not like IT and social media that is called engineering these days.

Real engineering are people who understand and use physical phenomenon to make technology and includes stuff like chemical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, materials science and the like. Fields such as materials science, bio-engineering, robotics, semiconductors, etc. constitute real engineering. There is actually very little of this in Silicon Valley these days. Indeed, its places like Pittsburgh that have a lot of this engineering such as robotics, scientific instruments, and nano-materials companies.

It is easy to pose as "brave" by opposing trendy environmentalist fads. However, the left doesn't really care about that stuff anyway...it is mostly frivolous virtue signalling. What is most dear to the left is turning the USA into a one party state with mass immigration. And on this critical issue of sovereignty, Tillerson, Haley, Puzder, & Mnuchin either don't care or are actively in alliance with the left. It is time to stop deluding yourself about what is important here.

Really. When Coulter flips out about someone, it's usually due to her getting ahead of herself.

A lot of names out there are gigantic piles of shit...politically. Of course they will suck...if that's why they were selected.

The whole reason Trump is selecting these people is not because of their political acumen. It's because they know how to get shit done. A major reason why we are in this mess is due to focusing on solely political and/or ideological tenets. Yes, there is a political aspect to a lot of things in life, but as I've learned in recent years, you tend to look like an idiot if you focus on just the political aspect of things and not how it affects everything else.

Tillerson interview

Anonymous Philalethes December 10, 2016 7:10 PM  

Trump seems to be bringing a lot of people from the business world into the government. Unlike politicians, business people usually have to actually produce. Interesting. Reminds me of that old saying, "The business of America is business." Who said that? I look it up: It was Calvin Coolidge, regarded by Derbyshire as the best president in American history – and I'd tend to agree. Turns out he's been slightly misquoted; he actually said "…the chief business of the American people is business." He's also famous for replying "You lose" to the woman who told him she'd made a bet she could get more than two words out of him. My kind of man.

Trump may very well be the best president since Coolidge. He may turn out to be the best president ever, if he really can/does turn it all around.

As for Tillerson, I admit I am nonplussed, as with several of Trump's other appointments. I have to remind myself that Trump doesn't have anything like my background, and I'm sure doesn't know a lot that I (and many here) know about history and who and what is behind the globalists. And remind myself also that he has surprised me repeatedly. (He probably does know more than I think.)

The bottom line, of course, is that he is not Hillary, whose imagined presidency would have been four years of hell – not to mention the Final Solution to the America Problem. He may not be My Perfect President, but he's a very canny fellow, and – unless we've all really been played (wouldn't be the first time) – I'm reasonably certain he really does want to Make America Great Again. How far he'll get with that remains to be seen, but at least he won't be doing his best to destroy it.
