Jones for Change

President elect Barack Obama rode an election wave for change. Like all curls, this one broke into a mash of whitewater. A surfboard fin can lose hold in the froth. Did Barack steer his board to center or did it uncontrollably cavitate? The results are the same.

Chevron may once again promote a Board member to National Security Adviser. Condoleezza Rice served in that role for George W. Bush. Retired General James L. Jones is rumored to fill the NSA Chief position. General. Jones sits on the boards of Chevron, Boeing, Invacare and Cross Match Technologies.

James is also president and chief executive officer of the Institute for 21st Century Energy, a policy center in affiliation with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. They unveiled a Transition Plan for Securing America's Energy Future, an energy policy roadmap with 88 concrete recommendations and detailed time lines for President-elect Barack Obama and the 111th Congress.

Want to bet Chevron keeps their natural gas interest in Myanmar? How about Boeing getting the new Air Force refueling tanker to ensure U.S. jobs in an economic downturn? America's Government-Industrial Monstrosity is Eisenhower's MIC on steroids. It seems firmly entrenched and ready to profit from energy security, infrastructure development and health care reform. Stay tuned for change, likely better packaged and sold Corporafornication.
