Behind the Tillerson choice

Politico - Tillerson was brought into Trump Tower for an interview with Trump at the recommendation of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who count Exxon among their private consulting clients, according to two sources familiar with the conversations. His name was first publicly floated for the job in early December and he met privately with Trump on Tuesday. Rice sat down with the President-elect in late November, and Gates followed her three days later.

Let's not forget that Condoleezza Rice worked for that other Rockefeller oil firm, Chevron. They even named an oil tanker in her honor. So her loyalties to the Rockefeller clan have been well established and it's no surprise she'd hawk the services of another Rockefeller lackey. Want to know who's really tugging at the levers of power? Just follow the money, and we're not talking about the chump change mopes like Trump.
How is it, Sam, that you aren't devoting much focus to the real story? You know the one, the one about the real American coup. Your current Trump obsession is just distraction.
