Rex Tillerson Russia and Exxon Neftegan (AKA ENL)

On Dec. 18, 2016 it was reported that Rex Tillerson (the fascist party's nominee for Sec. of State) is the long-time director of a US-Russian oil firm based in the tax haven of the Bahamas.

The report is based off of leaked 2001 documents that were leaked to a German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung and to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists in Washington DC.

A story I found helpful about the leaked documents is here:

I took some notes on the article and snooped around a tiny bit about this new info. Notes follow:

Tillerson has been an officer in ENL since 1998. The company has officers in Houston, Moscow, and Sakhalin in Russia's far east.

ENL’s most important project is Sakhalin -l. Sakhalin Island is located just north of Japan. The consortium of companies supporting Sakhalin is made up of companies from Russia, USA, India and Japan.

In 2013, Putin awarded Tillerson the Russian Order of Friendship.

Tillerson is friendly with Igor Sechin, Sechin is head of the State oil company Rosneft. Sechin is “ex” KGB.

In Russia, Sechin is 2nd in power only to Putin. He is barred from entering the USA. If he is allowed in, it is reported he wants to motorcycle across the country with his good friend Rex Tillerson.

Tillerson needs to be confirmed by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Rubio and McCain are balking, sort of.

If Tillerson and Putin’s other puppet lift sanctions against Russia, Exxon’s stock will rise. Tillerson owns $218 million in stock. His pension is worth about 70 million.

Sakhalin Island came under Russian control at the end of WWII when Russia battled it out with the Japanese just before the USA finally defeated Japan.

The Russians made the island a penal colony back when. Writer Anton Chekhov visited the penal colony.

In 1983, Russians shot down Korean Air Flight 007 when the plane flew over the island. Killed 269 people. Including John Bircher and U.S. Congressman Larry McDonald from Georgia.

The law firm in the Bahamas that set up the ENL was Higgs and Johnson. The law firm's current senior partner Philip C. Dunkley was trained at Wycliffe College in Gloucestershire England.
