Hardly coincidental either.

My hair stood on end when I read that. Tillerson is already one of the most powerful men in the world, well acquainted with the evils of backward Middle-Eastern societies and how to get an edge to deal effectively with them. Yet here he is pulling a jury together to convict a pedophile. And Trump picks this guy. This is the most exciting development I've seen yet.

I think it's a great development. It really made me sit up straight when I heard Trump mentioning Hillary "taking a number of them" in reference to Haitian villages. I thought it was a well executed move, in line with his highlighting of Wikileaks within the same speech.

That doesn't mean he's not one of them. They manage to get people accused and convicted as paedophiles when they become a threat or know too much. If anything, I think this story makes him suspect - who was the guy being put away? It would bet interesting to know.

Welcome to the front row seating to the greatest story of our lifetimes. Let's get justice for all the victims involved. Justice for the world.

i hope this is true. i found his appointment to be mildly puzzling and of course everyone is skeptical of a big oil person as SoS. i just want to see these fucking pederasts beaten in the streets, is that so much to ask?

He's an Eagle Scout. I think we may be pleasantly amazed.

The other reason he likely picked him is because Trump has said all campaign he wants to end U.S. dependence with foreign oil and to bring more oil production home to the U.S.. This pick would make sense to get that done efficiently.

I find it strange people's bash oil companies and executes, and yet are most oftentimes consumers of the oil products they despise. Between oil pulled out of the ground by Saudi's or Americans, why not choose American?

Theres no AMERICAn oil companie looking for our best interests. We don't get a better price making it here. They all sell to the central market which dictates price through demand and availability.

i believe its appropriate to hold a healthy amount of skepticism towards these people because we are an oligarchy/oiligarchy. that being said you make a legitimate point, i would much rather see the saudis bankrupt beyond reprisal.

This could be good. Even convicts have morals when it comes to this so you would think it would be possible for the CEO of a major corporation to. Some of these people actually probably did get where they are by being smart, and not just the pedo ring connections.

Me too! I am concerned about so many folks on this board who are struggling with the hideous reality of evil. Demoralization and despair are a key way the darkness spreads. That must not be allowed.

Amen. I worry they are going to Jeff Weinhaus people that realize Michael J Devlin was the Original Pizza-Pedo. We are fighting powerful evil people.

they still prosecute the ones that act on their own. so they can say that they do convict them.

When I initially heard his pick for SoS, I was really disappointed. I officially retract that opinion.

I thought something similar, but then I realized, as CEO of Exxon, he may actually be "stepping down" into a less influential position when he becomes S.O.S.. So many of these international relationships are centered around oil, anyways.

He is like Trump, in that he fears no man. He is not intimidated, and can not be bought. It also seems as if he is accustomed to being under threat, so that won't be new, either.

I think Trump is putting together his team of untouchables, just like Eliot Ness.

I really love this idea and I hope it's true. Now, if we can just get past Jan. 20th without any shenanigans from the outgoing administration.

I agree about the untouchables, although how many were shot?
