Basketball: A Game of Deception

Posted in Politics, Vote Out The Bums at 6:15 pm by Administrator

Obama identifies publically with a sports game. Interestingly, sports games are known for being deceptive. Baseball has a pitcher trying to deceive a batter with a curve ball or an off-speed pitch. Football has the ‘play-action’ pass and reverses. Basketball has pump-fakes, jab-steps, blind-side screens, back doors and much more to deceive the opponents. “There has historically been more deception in basketball, more players and officials pretending to make and call plays as if in honest sport when they were being recompensed or otherwise rewarded to lose or control games.”

Obama’s game is basketball. Basketball has a vivid history of scandal. What’s Obama telling us?

Classic basketball scandals are too numerous for this article. The following two were huge. In 1951 the CCNY basketball scandal rocked the sporting world. Michigan’s ‘Fab Five’ have their own scandalous story. Google ‘collegiate recruiting scandals’ and you’ll get over one million hits. Strange that Obama bonds with a scandalous sport.

Obama’s game has been corrupted at all levels. The pros have their scandals. “Tim Donaghy, referee for the National Basketball Association, has been accused of both betting on basketball games and fixing games for the mob.”

Not a season goes by without illegal recruiting at the high school and collegiate levels. Alumni would rather cheat and win than play by the rules and be mediocre. As in politics, most of these irregularities go unnoticed. Also, as in politics, only the corrupted win!

Even in the 2008 Olympics, basketball players manage to stir the scandal pot. Local Beijing newspapers “accused stars LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Dwyane Wade of soliciting prostitutes. Well, not prostitutes exactly — female technicians.”

The scandalous nature of basketball aside, those who understand the game know that it encompasses three basic factors. First, for players and teams to be successful, they must deceive their opponents. Secondly, players must be coachable. Finally, basketball has turned from a recreational into a game of entertainment.

Deception is the name of the game in basketball, just like politics. A player fakes right and dribbles left. Obama is not the only politician that fakes going right, and then goes left. Most 20th century U.S. politicians have pledge political reform only to move further towards corruption, just to win elections and stay in power.

Basketball players will fake to shoot the ball only to get the man guarding them off balance. Once off balance, the defensive man is at a disadvantage. Politicians like Obama will fake concern for children. Everyone knows that if you want a bill passed in Congress, express concern for the children that it will help. But when the subject turns to aborting children (Every medical person in the world will tell you that the end product of the conception is a process producing a human being), the mantra is “kill, kill, kill” even if the child is in the birth canal, “kill”! Children in the womb are like that defensive man, they are at a disadvantage. Fake right then go left.

In basketball teamwork, an admirable goal, only happens with coachable players. Obama is obviously coachable. He runs the plays, but he doesn’t understand them. The first thing he’s doing as president is trying to fix the economy. But just as in the 1951 NYCC scandal, the game is fixed. Not sure how much the mob will benefit this time, but unions and the construction industry will reap major election paybacks.

If Obama were given a test from any university’s Econ 100 class would he pass? Of course not. Obama is only a figurehead captain of a political team playing deceptive games with the U.S. economy. Keep an eye on George Soros (market manipulator, imperial pawn, friend of the Rothschilds). http://www.inteldaily.com/?c=140&a=1843
He is an agent for European money that controls over one-half of the world’s wealth.

Whatever George articulates will most likely become, in some form, U.S. policy.
“Financier George Soros said he favours a variation he called a “good bank” — keeping existing bank capital together with the bad assets in a “bad bank” and creating a new bank with the good assets.”
http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/feedarticle/8337223

The ‘good bank/bad bank’ strategy is in play. ”Reports say the Obama administration is tilting toward a strategy of creating an aggregator bank, possibly run by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., which would purchase troubled mortgages and securities from financial institutions to improve their balance sheets and stimulate lending.”

Thank you George!

If Obama were given a test from any university’s World History class would he pass? No, because he’s being coached by Brzezinski on foreign affairs. (No, we’re not talking Bill Clinton’s erotic past.) “Obama’s foreign policy adviser is Zbigniew Brzezinski, the man whose bright idea it was to arm the Mujahideen in Afghanistan to fight the Soviet-friendly government there. Presumably Brzezinski is now also behind Obama’s sudden desire to send 10,000 more US troops to Afghanistan.”

Obama doesn’t know history!

Obama is a good team player, but he’s not the coach. He is without much knowledge of the game he’s playing. Not since F.D.R., (The Boss, King Franklin), has there been a true ‘coach’ in the White House. All others, to varying degrees have been puppets of ideas set forth from behind the scenes by people like Soros, Brzezinski and the people they entertain.

Basketball from high school on up has turned into a game of entertainment. Professional players know that. Their pay depends on it. That’s why you see so many – unguarded – dunks during the season. Dunks get the crowd going. People like to see their entertainers doing things they can’t do. All of us little guys can shoot three-pointers. But we can’t dunk!

The entertainment industry has turned to politics for ratings. Political news provides information for an every-increasing number of media programming. Obama stars in the current political ‘soap opera’. He loves the ‘change’ hero’s fame and stardom. The villains are plentiful. Obama will be the hero no matter how many ‘dunks’ he misses. His coaches will talk about his noble effort. The media will play a zone defense to protect him. His game entertains but the price of the ticket will be enormous for future generations.

Do we really want a basketball-minded hero as president? Will this ‘soap’ be a Greek tragedy or comedy?

Author Charles Rosen views the game of basketball as “people who in one way or another were caught up in a system that almost openly invited corruption”. Obama’s game is basketball. The corruption that follows the game is his team’s politics.

VOTB (vote out the bums) because they willingly play in a corruptible system.

VOTB – every incumbent, every election. Take back the system from corrupt politicians and game players.

Visit the VOTB store and pass on the idea.
