The cronyism rages on, now he's offered Verne Lundquist the ambassadorship to Sweden.

Sounds like Rex Tillerson may be the pick for Secretary of state.

For decades, the joke on the Left had been that the US Government was the diplomatic and military arms of Exxon-Mobil. Now we have to come up with a new joke.

The Tillerson story may just be more fake news from NBC.

Yes, here is another left wing web site with the same "fake news":

Please note that I have never visited that web site and never will again. I only went there to debunk your "fake news from NBC".

Just like the Pruitt news ?

It is really sad that the door opened to clean, national energy with a revitalized economy has turned into this nightmare.

That looks like an interesting web site, thanks for the link, I bookmarked it. They seem to think the Tillerson appointment is happening. I wonder why Trump would pick a left wing extremist like that.

While I can see that a lot of the concern expressed in this thread is genuine, I also cannot help being amused by the rampant panic over events that haven't happened yet, and may never happen.
It reminds me of the Chicken Little story I heard in kindergarten: "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!"
Take a deep breath, step back, and wait for something bad to actually happen. Then open up.

There was a guy on CNBC yesterday saying that environmental policy and energy policy haven't been coordinated, and expects Trump to fix that. Of course if the fix is to disregard environmental issues that would be bad :-)

This topic was started after Trump was elected and started choosing his Cabinet, and most of what he has done has been in line with what the liberals and Left fear. I think that you're confusing concern about the near future based on what's happening right now with panicking over nothing concrete. Waiting until something happens and only then worrying about it usually results in more damage that could have been at least reduced. Or, to put it another way, you can't keep the horses in unless you close the barn door before they leave.
