Don't Turn The Damn Ball Over. Part II.
Trying To Save Our Delicate Democracy, Part II-
Oh, and here's your new President Conman's Treasury Sectary Steven Mnuchin.
Yay, he'll give working men and women a break, and help provide an
economically to help working men and women of America live the dream.
Because he loved-loved-loved to foreclose on working men and women's homes
after the last Bushonomics Depression. He is closer to the Devil than he
is to anything this country needs. But, Trump loves him.
the pièce de résistance: [Steven Mnuchin] reportedly foreclosing on a
90-year-old woman, Ossie Lofton, who
owed the bank 30 cents but sent a check for 3 cents… By comparison,
Mnuchin’s time at Goldman was akin to working as a volunteer in
Ethiopia, feeding and bathing orphans, and walking multiple miles for
clean water in his personal time. If only he’d stuck to being a pawn of
the 'global power structure,' we might all be a little better off."
T. Conman is now the ultimate Insider Trader criminal now. He will have
access to tons of Confidential Information of the Insider Trader sort,
which is illegal to profit on. Just in Government Contracts alone. He will
know which corporations are getting the biggest contracts before it is
announced to the public. That is why he hired the Goldman Sacks Investors
in his cabinet, to pilfer Wall Street and the American People with his
illegal Insider Trading Scheme. And he is not even pretending that he is
not a for-profit-President:
was amusing in the CBS debate on Feb. 13 to hear the titan complain that
the audience was stacked with 'special interest' donors. He’d know. He
likely recognized them from lunches at his golf clubs. This is a guy so
disconnected from and uninterested in the average American that he refers
to his voters in generic stereotypes. 'I love the poorly educated,' he
gushed after the Nevada caucuses. You can almost picture him, like
Felonius Gru in 'Despicable Me,' surveying his crowds of identical
Minions. Though at least Gru knew that one is named Kevin. Nor is Mr.
Trump outside of, or even slightly opposed to, Washington business as
usual. It’s how he does business. Americans are angry at Beltway
back-scratching, logrolling and backroom agreements. This is the art of
the deal. In explaining his $100,000 contribution to the Clinton
Foundation, Mr. Trump bragged: 'When
they call, I give. And you know what, when I need something from them, I
call them. They are there for me.'"
there is a decision which company should get the "HUGE"
contract from the Government, his Goldman Sacks thieves will know which
company he is the most invested in, and which company will make him the
least profit. That will be Donald T. Defrauder's way of deciding which
Corporation gets the "HUGE" contract. That is not just
morally and ethically wrong, it is criminally wrong. It is technically,
legally, and Constitutionally a Crime. It is called Insider Trading, and
the very "conflict of interest" our Founding Fathers feared the
most from Our Presidents. They feared a For-Profit-President more than anything
are the ads playing that tape? Where are the ads questioning whether a
President Trump would turn down that buddy who asked to keep his federal
Nascar-track-owner tax break? Or asking what he'd barter away in an Obama
Care 'reform' deal? Mr. Trump will get stuff 'done' in Washington, all
right. He’d put today’s backroom Beltway culture on steroids. And all
the angry little people (that's you working men and women who voted for
Trump) won’t be Mr. Trump’s concern (at F-ing all). They never have
been. His rivals have made much of the billionaire’s attempt to use
eminent domain to build a limousine lot: knocking him on property rights.
But the better version of the tale is of how the billionaire used city
officials to condemn the house of an average American, (Hello...
McFly) further underwriting his casino business."
a company is going to lose a Defense contract or other government
contract, Trump's new band of thieves will illegally divest Trump and all
of Goldman Sachs holdings in that company, and likely sell those stocks to
their cliental. Like they did in the Bushonomics crash just a short decade
or so ago. Yay Trump. You're our man! If you can't con us no one can!
the campaign trail, he ripped Wall Street and vowed not to let Wall Street
control the country. Yet he picks a former Goldman Sachs partner as
Treasury secretary," Jaret Seiberg from Cowen & Co. said.
one thing we know that President Conman will not do is anything
that he says he will do.
is the same Trump who said Goldman
Sachs had 'total-total control' over his rivals Hillary Clinton and
Ted Cruz. And he often referenced Clinton's speeches to Goldman Sachs
(GS), accusing her of meeting 'in secret with international banks to plot
the destruction of U.S. sovereignty.'"
don't forget that Donald T. Defrauder (the "T"
stands for "the" by the way, which is funny) has a long
history of Defrauding investors, Wall Street, and anybody he can get his
grubby little hands on. He lies, cheats, and steals from everyone and
anyone, and has one of the longest criminal records of any rich guy that
has ever had to pay lawyers to keep him out of jail.
earnings announcement was so
distorted that the Securities and Exchange Commission called it
'materially misleading' because it 'created the false and misleading
impression' that the company was performing better when in fact it was
not. The SEC said that Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts violated
federal anti-fraud laws by 'knowingly or recklessly' issuing the
information… 'This is the first commission enforcement action to address
the abuse of pro forma earnings figures,' said Stephen Cutler, director of
the SEC's enforcement division when the case was brought in 2002. 'The
case starkly illustrates how pro forma numbers can be used deceptively
and the mischief that they can cause.'"
Goldman Sachs has "total-total control" over Trump. And don't
you ever f---ing forget that Goldman Sacks was more guilt than most of the
other Wall Street criminals who caused the Bushonomics Depression.
banking giant Goldman Sachs gs has
agreed to a list of 'facts' in addition to paying $5.1 billion to settle a
lawsuit related to its handling of mortgage-backed securities leading up
to the 2007 financial crisis, the U.S. Department of Justice announced
resolution holds Goldman Sachs accountable for its serious misconduct in
falsely assuring investors that securities it sold were backed by sound
mortgages, when it knew that they were full of mortgages that were likely
to fail," said Acting Associate Attorney General Stuart F.
Delery in a statement."
Step One: cut taxes of the wealthy in order to create a massive loss in
revenues. Bushonomics Step Two: pretend that a massive lose of revenues
equals a massive increase in revenues and start spending like you’re
Daddy's trust fund is endless (That's why I originally called it "Trust
Fund Economics"). Bushonomics Step Three: start a religious war in
the Middle East so you can pilfer billions (and maybe trillions) of
dollars in cold hard stolen cash when you invade Iran (yes, that was
hundred's of BILLIONS of dollars in war profiteering profits for Darth
Cheney's Company Halliburton during the Iraq invasion that is almost up to
half-ah-Trillion, in taxpayer's defrauded cash, and still counting).
Bushonomics Step Four: and funest step for Darth Cheney was to watch the
stock market crash and enjoy watching millions of hard-working
working-class citizens lose their homes and jobs, so more wealthy and
property could shift to the 1%. Meanwhile, the price for Bush's and
Cheney's war-profiteering War has surpassed 2-TRILLION dollars,
left for us working citizen to pay for.
costs of paying private and publicly listed war profiteers seem miniscule
in light of the total bill for the war. Last week, the Costs of War
Project by the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown
University said the
war in Iraq cost $1.7 trillion dollars, not including the $490 billion in
immediate benefits owed to veterans of the war and the lifetime
benefits that will be owed to them or their next of kin."
The propaganda against Iran has already begun (by the way
"Propaganda" by definition is a lie, and as I always say, "lies
are the building blocks of evil."). Just like the lies about Iraq
started a few months after 9-11. Within two or three years the economy
will crash again, and the working men and women of America will pay the
price, and Trump T. Conman will profit from it. As will Goldman Sachs, who
"totally-totally" owns the President of the United States, again.
Plus, as Trump pisses all over the Constitution, the Cowardly Congress has
already said they will not stop him. The Man who is in charge of defending
the Constitution legally, House Oversight Committee Chairman
Jason "the Coward" Chaffetz (R) has never read the Constitution,
or is a cowardly lying jackass:
Democrats have pleaded with the Oversight Committee chairman to look into
Trump’s various conflict-of-interest controversies, but Chaffetz has
ignored them. Asked to explain his position, the GOP lawmaker told the
Huffington Post yesterday, 'It's sort of ridiculous to go after him (no
it's not) when his financial disclosure is already online (no it's not).'
The response doesn’t make much sense. The disclosure documents offer
assessments of Trump’s assets and net worth, but this information does
little to address his many conflicts of interest."
Constitution is 100% clear that no President can have investments in
foreign countries and governments. This is not open to debate. When anyone
says that is not true, they are not just lying in your face, they are
spitting in your face and calling you stupid.
'blind trust' principle is a way to comport with Article 1, Section 9 of
the Constitution, which bars office holders from accepting 'any
present, emolument [a salary, fee, or profit from employment or office.],
office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign
state.' Pretty clear constitutional language. -Ralph Carter"
is not open to debate. Trumps investments and building buildings in
foreign states makes it unconstitutional for him to be President, PERIOD!
To say otherwise makes you a lair or a fool. This was also the prevision
in the Constitution that forbids Congress from granted some scumbag a
Title of Nobility, thank god. So what's next? King Trump, Herr Furor for
I, Section 9, also requires that Congress produce a regular accounting of
the monies the federal government spends. Rejecting the monarchy of
England, the Constitution also specifically prohibits Congress from
title of nobility to any person and prohibits public officials from
accepting a title of nobility, office, or gift from any foreign country or
monarch without congressional approval."
who says otherwise is lying to your face and calling you a "sucker!"
Donald Trump is spitting to your face, calling you a sucker, and you
apparently you are loving it, when he said. "The President can't have
a conflict of interest." Which when translated through the Conman
filter means, "Of course I have a conflict of interest, but I want to
break Dick Cheney's war profiteering record of a half ah-trillion bucks
pilfered by Halliburton."
is not up for negotiation. The only way that Trump can effectively,
ethically, legally and morally be president is to put his financial
interests aside for the duration. A blind trust is the only way for
that to happen. Even a blind trust should have additional oversight to be
sure that it remains truly blind. And a full accounting of all his
financial interests and investments should be submitted as part of the
public record. As every president before him has done for a century.
Especially since he seems to view his family and current properties as an
integral part of his ruling empire. If any other public official had the
kind of graft already going on before he’s even become president,
they’d be summarily removed. -Lee Drake, CEO OS-Cubed Inc."
hired his kids to be the go between, between him and Goldman Sachs, and
then just decided they were just too stupid. So he just incorporated
Goldman Sachs directly into his Presidential Conman Cabinet. He has turned
the White House into a criminal enterprise, and the Cowardly (R)s are
already refusing to do their jobs again!
"It's sort of ridiculous to go after him (no it's not)," the
cowardly lyin' Chaffetz said "When his financial disclosure is
already online (no it's not)." That response doesn’t make much
Yeah, I'm just not scared of a West Coast team traveling all the way
across the Country with a rookie QB. The Patriots defense is aesthetically
ugly, but deals very well with rookie QBs flinging the ball around like
blind archers. Plus, they are still top five in point allowed.
do like some of the Rams Players, I was big on Austin, Quick, and
Kendricks in the Draft. "He has some tremendous skill players: Kenny
Britt, Tavon Austin, Brian Quick," Patricia said. "I mean, Kenny
Britt is unbelievable as far as a receiver to be able to go up and catch
the ball and create vertical separation, get behind the coverage, and with
a guy like Goff who can throw it down there, that's a big threat as far as
the deep balls are concerned, the big plays are concerned." He has
been a consistent big play beast this season.
is more kinetic quickness in the Slot. "Tavon Austin's [a] very fast
receiver, very quick guy that plays in the slot," Patricia said.
"So again, his ability to get those shorter, intermediate-type,
possession-type balls out quickly with good velocity. I mean honestly, he
threw an unbelievable deep ball downfield. It was tight-spiraled, it was
about 56-yards in the air and it was just a really pretty throw. The guy
has got a great, strong arm and he does a great job with the tight end
too. I'll tell you Kendricks kind of silently is a really good possession
receiver for them. A guy that he obviously trusts and he can get the ball
to." He is like a faster Edelman who is finally coming into his own.
has some weapons who can hurt you. "When
you coach defense you don't have any control over what the other team
calls," BB siad. "You have to just defend whatever they do. You
can't really worry about it. If they want to run it every time, they can
run it. If they want to throw it every team, they can throw it. If they
want to split it in half, they can split it in half. You don't have any
control over that. You just have to defend what the situation and the
personnel they have in the game." They are now trying to throw
the ball all the time.
there is Gurley. "[He's got] everything, really. He's strong. He's
got good power. He's got good pad level. And he's fast," BB said.
"He's explosive. He runs through tackles. He can make people miss. He
really can do it all. He's got power. He's got quickness. He's got vision.
He can beat you in a lot of ways." He sure can.
is the guy that helps Goff the most by wearing
down the defense. "Very, very strong. I would call him a
workhorse guy," Patricia said. "He's a bigger guy. He likes to
get the ball downhill into the defense. He runs with really good pad
level, protects the ball. He has good vision, and he can set up a lot of
blocks." He just couldn't stay healthy in college.
he has stayed healthy in the NFL and is a beast. "I would say the
thing that is really impressive is his burst to get vertical,"
Patricia said. "When his pads are facing downhill and he can
just get downhill quickly and really you see it in a couple routes that he
has in the passing game where he's catching the ball on the move. It's
like, 'He's coming'. It's a big, strong, powerful back that's coming
downhill with low pads. Those are tough guys to tackle. You know, they
don't really give you any angles to kind of hit him and that's one of the
things that makes it most difficult to handle him." His straight line
speed is what makes him special.
will use him in different ways, including at QB. "I think what's
interesting too is they put a lot on him from, you'll see him run the
Wildcat program," BB said.
"And really a couple different plays that they'll do with him,
whether it's the fake with kind of the receiver coming across, or he's
just trying to get the snap and work in one of their run games. It's
pretty impressive." He is a
big power back, but has great speed in the open field.
do not what Gurley getting the ball in space. "You can see him doing
it. You can see him doing it plenty. You can see him catching the ball,
making people miss, see him running with power," BB said. "I
mean, just because it's not a 40-yard run, doesn't mean it's not a great
run. A lot of times, the first guy who gets to him is 35 yards down field.
That doesn't make it a great run." Defenders have to respect his
speed, which makes his cutbacks deadly.
has not been knocking off the longs yet, but he will pound a defense in
trouble. "There are a lot of five-yard runs where there's nothing
there and the back gets five yards," BB said. "I mean, I think
some of the best runs you'll see are five-seven-yard runs. How does a guy
get seven yards when you look at the play and there's nobody blocked? You
think he's going to lose a yard or at best, get back to the line of
scrimmage, and he almost gets a first down. There are great runs that are
seven-yard runs and Gurley's got a lot of great plays, special
plays." And then they'll go deep over the top to Britt, and maybe
while he is not making the big plays in the run game, he slows the defense
down and drags the LB and Safeties up. "Just because it's not a
50-yard run doesn't mean it's not a good run," BB said. "You see
plenty of them on film: breaking tackles, making guys miss, finding yards
when it doesn't really look like there are many yards there. That's what
good backs do. It's not just about how many yards a guy gains. I mean,
that's I don't think - you've got to look at the play." You allow
Gurley to average 5-yards a carry, the safeties will cheat up and get beat
over the top.
one thing Goff is exceptional at is when he gets out of the pocket moving
to his right he is a great thrower. "Obviously he is going to be the
focus point from their offense and the things they want to do,"
Patricia said. "From the passing game you see a lot of those throws,
you see a lot of decisions, you see what they're trying to do from a
philosophy standpoint with him. Boras is doing a great job of trying to
control it with him so he doesn't have to put too much on him." They
still have to keep it simple for him, which is where the Pats D can hurt
is why they work the run game in so consistently. "But then if you
take a look at the run game, there's quite a bit in the run game where he
obviously is, whether it's a 'check with me' type of play," Patricia
said. "Or he's looking at the defense and he can change the play at
the line of scrimmage, it's very subtle, it's very quick but he is doing a
lot of that at the line, which obviously with the run game that they have
and the back, Gurley of course. He's doing a good job of putting them in
some of those situations or trying to get them in the right situation. You
can see his development from that standpoint starting to increase. "
You cannot let him get out of the pocket moving to his right.
they have Kenny Britt. "He's a tough, physical player. He's a big guy
but he can get down the field. [He] does a good job of catching the ball
in traffic with guys hanging over him," McCourty said. "We've
just got to know where he's at. He's a big target for them. He has made a
ton of plays for them this year so I think as a secondary we understand
they're going to try to get him the ball in a bunch of different
situations." He is so good at leaping up over DBs deep downfield and
pulling it in.
combination of size and speed really hurts a secondary. "So just
knowing where he's at and trying to make it tough. He's another bigger,
competitive guy that's going to go out there and try to compete for every
ball whether it's thrown up or down the field, whether it's an in cut or
something and there is a guy hanging on him, he's going to try to make the
catch. So we can't really lay off him no matter how covered we have him.
We've just got to go up there and try to get the ball out."
Britt is a big WR who has that knack forgetting open and catching the ball
Goff does have some serious weapons to use, but he still is just a rookie
in his third start, they can beat the Pats with the run game that starts
with the O-line. "I'll start with Saffold, and I know he's a little
bit injured here, and we'll see where that goes. But you watch him with
the offensive line and what an outstanding player. Very physical, very
aggressive, strong," BB said. "I think in general for their
offensive line, Havenstein, Wichmann, those guys are big, long, strong
guys, very powerful guys. They'll be on our left, their right. You know,
guys that have played for them a lot." The O-line has not sun blocked
as well this year.
are saying, "screw the rookie QB," and lining up to stuff
Gurley. "Barnes in the middle is a very smart center. He's obviously
a guy that's going to make a lot of calls for them and really control a
lot of things that happen up front and be able to identify, which is good
for their young quarterback. He can help that guy out and try to make sure
that everybody is on the same page. So there has got to be some
communication and a connection there which he obviously solidifies that in
the middle." The O-line has not been able to adjust.
Gurley, stop the rookie QB. "Then really with the other positions
with Brown and Robinson, both guys that are really good players. Robinson
is very long. He's long, he's a good athlete, he does a good job out there
on the edge. You know, we're just trying to kind of see how that all
shakes out but a good, solid group up front. Obviously going to run the
ball and try to control the game up front. That's what they try to do.
They do a great job of really, I'd say one of the best things they do is
just the way that they finish, and the way that they kind of attack."
This is going to be an old-school tough afternoon on defense.
The Rama defense is where they can really win the game. "This is a
very disruptive, aggressive, physical, fast group. They get up the field
and play more of a one-gap style of defense. Challenge your ability to
maintain the line of scrimmage," McDaniels said. "I think they
have some extremely disruptive players. Aaron Donald obviously is one of
the premier players in the league. Quinn. yeah, Quinn. He's a guy that
they can create a lot of problems in the passing game. I mean he has 18
forced fumbles in his career. So he creates a lot of problems in the
pocket, in the running game." Aaron Donald is a beast, and he is now
lined up next to the ultra quick Easley, who is a beast when healthy.
get up field quick and try to disrupt the offense instantly. "Their
front is disruptive all together," McDaniels said. "They've got
a lot of guys that can do some things to create negative plays. They're
fast at linebacker. They've converted Barron from a safety to I think the
last time we saw him playing safety in Tampa Bay. And now he's a
linebacker. Ogletree is a really good player in the middle. They've been
very opportunistic in creating turnovers in the secondary." Pressure
leads to turnovers.
just has to not make that one bad throw. "You've got to be able to
stay on track," McDaniels said. "You can't fall behind on the
down and distance. If you do that you put yourself at risk in long-yardage
situations where they've got a pretty exotic blitz package, which they can
really challenge your ability to pick up the pressures and those types of
things. A totally different style of defense than we've seen the past few
weeks. Some different things we're going to have to handle schematically
and some players we're really going to have to get familiar with because
again, they do a great job of challenging you on every down, playing with
great effort. We're going to need to do a great job of getting prepared
this week to be ready to go at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday." If the Pats
don't turn the ball over it is an easy win.
that is much easier said then done. "Yeah, that's a big
challenge," BB said. "Coach [Gregg!] Williams does a lot of
things there. They play some zone and they mix in some man and they mix in
some pressure, they mix in some blitz zone. They get into the five-down
Bear look." We know Williams likes the headhunters.
will be looking to hurt people. "Again, they have good team speed and
then they're very active up front. They're hard to block. So a lot of
different schemes with good players," BB said. "If they just
played one scheme it be hard because like I said, 'they're hard to block
and they have good team speed'. Trumaine Johnson is hard to throw on,
period. So a combination of good players and identifying and getting the
right blocking and assignments, getting those right, because if you're
just half a step late or you just hesitate a little bit or they just catch
a little bit of an edge on you [you are Tostitos]." The explosive
rush always works hand in hand with the good-handed DBs.
they have a good friggin' rush. "Quinn, Donald, Barron, all those
defensive linemen, or if you're a little sloppy out there with
Johnson," BB said. "I mean, if you turn the ball over, they're
very athletic and long and fast. The multiple schemes that Coach Williams
employs and explosiveness and quality of the athletes that they have on
the field, those two combined make them a tough team to prepare for. It's
tough for us to simulate that in practice. I mean, I don't know that many
teams could do that no matter who they put out there because these guys
have so many players like that. It's tough to simulate in practice, as I
said, if you're just a little bit late on it, then you're looking at
sacks, negative runs, strip sacks, turnovers, all of those things. As I
said, it's going to be a challenge for us." Just don't turn the
friggin' ball over and the rookie QB cannot win on the road.
have talent up down and all around the defense, and not having Gronk
friggin' hurt likes having a Nazi maniac in the White House (that
shouldn't be as funny as it is). "I would say that is a very common
checklist that we have to go through on a week-to-week basis because
again, there are not an unlimited number of tight ends, running backs,
receivers, offensive linemen at any position for any game for any
team," McDaniels said. "So I think all of us have to have a
contingency plan in place. We have to be ready to either put another
player in at the same position or if we're out of players at that
position, which for a small portion of the game the other night Marty was
out for a little bit, Gronk was already out. So now you're down to the
groupings that you have left." Now there are whispers that they are
sick of it.
this be his last season as a Patriot? "I think our players have done
a great job of embracing that responsibility when it comes up. It's not
always easy," McDaniels said. "There's a lot of double learning
that has to take place or just quick thinking on your feet because you
start calling some things with guys in places that maybe they haven't
practiced as much if you get wiped out at a specific position and now some
guys have got to really do some quick thinking in the huddle and maybe
there's some other guys out there saying ‘Hey you've got this,' or
‘We're going to do that,' so again, it's something that you have to
always take into consideration. It's part of our game. It's part of what
happens every week. It's part of our preparation, especially when you go
into a game week and you're not 100 percent sure if you have these players
because they're questionable, or whatever it is, or they're recovering
from an injury. You have to consider that as you go through the week as
well." I just want my Gronk back.
Now it's December,
it is time to play the best football of the season. "It's
just a time that you want to play your best football," McCourty said.
"From being here for a while, we talk about it. [It's] a time where
you just want to put everything else aside and try to focus in on these
last couple games. I think that's what December means - that it's almost
over. We've got five games left in the regular season and you can't get
those five games back. You can't make up them later in the season. It's
here and now and that's it. I think that rings bells for all teams to know
it's close to the end and each game really matters. You've got to really
try to play your best so you're not sitting there in four or five weeks
saying, ‘I wish I had this week back, I wish I had that week back.' You
just want to put it all out there."
Just don't turn the ball and cruise relatively easily to victory.
me if you'd like a question blogged:
dogs on Main St howl Because they understand.
