Donald Trump is a Moron, Not an Eagle
One has to come to terms with whether the Secretary of State Rex Tillerson actually called Donald Trump a “real moron”. The statement itself does send shivers in the geopolitical world between the man who has strength and the one who appears to be weak.
I can only reminisce of the days when I was a boy scout. When I took my oath I felt an instilled sense of pride within me. “On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.” That pride carried onwards towards all the trials and tribulations in my life.
Indeed, when I was 16 I worked for a distribution company called Cochrane-Dunlop just around the corner from my house. I worked in the shipping and receiving department and every once in a while the head CEO would meander within our working space. There was a brand new bike but unfortunately the gears were missing, and of course the protocol would’ve been for it to go straight to the trash. I asked the CEO if I could buy the bike. He smiled, “How much you want to pay?”
I gave the CEO $20 and he accepted the offer. The head of the shipping department found out about the transaction and called me into his office. He scolded me, “You broke rank son.” Right there and then, he fired me. I called him an idiot and walked away with my bike.
After four days the CEO called and gave me back my job. He told me that the head-man from the shipping department told him that I stole a bunch of Bic pens. When I returned to work he made my life a living hell. I started doing jobs that would normally be assigned to 2 or 3 people. Nonetheless with my oath and pride in check, I was determined to perform my tasks diligently and to the bitter end.
What really made Rex Tillerson happy was when the World Petroleum Congress bestowed him the Dewhurst Achievement Award. The award recognized his “outstanding contribution to the oil and gas industry”. The distinguished lifetime achievement award celebrated Tillerson’s exceptional leadership of the largest publicly traded oil and gas company the world has seen in the past 10 years.
ExxonMobil is perhaps one the most influential global companies in the world. CEO Rex Tillerson stresses the importance of diversity and the inclusion of knowledge, critical thinking, skill, and culture to make the company more competitive, resilient, and superior at navigating the changing global energy business. The company is committed to building a diverse and talent-driven workforce which offers opportunities for every employee to excel.
Using these core values, ExxonMobil has used diversity and inclusion to attract a world-class global workforce within a competitive work environment that focuses on respect, individual growth, educational partnerships, community initiatives, and unique opinions. Their global workforce has the advantage of reflecting the local communities and cultures in which they are situated in, therefore promoting a diverse and multi-faceted moat to sustain their competitive advantage.
Being a global-leader in the oil and gas sector doesn’t just involve dealing with other oil and gas companies looking to make a profit. The CEO developed the skills to interact with major global leaders and figures in the world to address geopolitical issues in order to sustain ExxonMobil’s growth and corporate role in development. Tillerson’s word means everything, it is the oath he grew up with and believes in. He is not the type of man to be micromanaged by a moron.
He was given the job of Secretary of State by the President of the United States. Despite his new assigned role, this measly miscreant President still had the audacity to override Tillerson’s decisions to establish order in the world. There’s a big difference between a real-estate developer and an engineer that rose through the ranks of the corporate world. One has to embellish lies to make himself look good and to stoke his ego in how to circumvent genuine concerns about higher density development using false propaganda to promote his agenda.
In 2016 Tillerson voiced his opinion regarding carbon taxes. The Secretary of State indicated that although any tax is not in the best interest of a private company, he supports the policy in its effort to fight climate change. Tillerson has also expressed the Trans-Pacific Partnership in the Asia Pacific region as a “promising development.”
In a speech to the Asia Society Global Forum, he stated, “Even when a nation does not have a rich endowment of resources, we have learned that open markets and free trade can bring nations the energy supplies they need. But only government can open the avenues of free trade.”
Remember, Rex Tillerson couldn’t bring himself to donate one red cent to Trump’s presidential campaign. What is important is that Tillerson earned the rank of Eagle Scout and has even served as national president of the Boy Scouts of America. The Eagle does not lie, that is why the President continues to ask the media for an apology. The one who’s lying is the President; a Boy Scout never betrays his oath, even to the President of the United States. Rex Tillerson did not let the Boy Scouts down, he stands with all the Eagles and their historical integrity and pride, that’s why Trump’s minions are lying.
On my last day at Cochrane-Dunlop my manager approached me, shook my hand, and told me he was sorry. The Eagle does not lie.
