Introduction
Hello NFL Redditors - welcome to the LA Rams season spectacular; I'm your host u/Caddellzor. I'll be leading you on the great odyssey that can be called the Los Angeles Rams' 2018 season.

It's without a doubt the most incredible season I've had as a Ram's fan and even though it could've ended better, it was still a remarkable ride that I felt (and still feel) incredibly privileged to have experienced - So let's get to it!

General

Going into the offseason
2017 was a landmark year for the franchise, after abysmal performance for years under the coaching staff of this man right here, Sean McVay's new look Rams offense catapulted the #32 scoring offense in 2016 to #1 in 2017. Included was the first playoff berth in 13 years, and a new outlook on life for Rams' Nation. Consequently, the Rams were expected to meet high expectations in 2018, though it seemed that might be difficult given the impending losses of many key free agents, and a growing belief that the offensive renaissance would fall back down to earth in 2018. Towards the beginning of the offseason, I honestly had pretty tame expectations for 2018, figuring we were more likely to go 8-8 than 11-5. But that was before...

LA Rams 2018 Offseason: Electric Boogaloo
FUCK THAT WE'RE COMIN INTO 2018 HOT!
Instead of sitting on their laurels, the Rams front office decided to be VERY active in the offseason, moving under-performing members of the defense (Robert Quinn & Alec Ogletree) to bring in upgraded talent at CB & DT (Marcus Peters/ Aqib Talib, and Ndamukong Suh respectively). Les & McVay also traded their 1st rounder for Brandin Cooks, and signed him. Oh yeah & Todd Gurley broke the RB market.
Overall, the offseason was a whirlwind - it felt like every month the Rams acquired some new high profile player, whether through trades or FA, and going into 2018, my mood on how far we'd go in the season totally changed; we finally felt like a true SB contender! Still, around the time Brandin Cooks was acquired the narrative of "uncontrollable locker room" & "Dream Team lol" started to become pretty common...
For a full list of singings & who left, click here.

OTAs & Training Camp: Aaron Donald's Day Off
This would be the part where I talk about training camp, but honestly not much happened outside of Aaron Donald's holdout, so I'll talk about that instead.
In 2018, Aaron Donald held out from OTAs & training camp, in hopes of getting a new contract extension. What isn't talked about so much is the fact that he ALSO held out during the 2017 off season, so there was a pretty good deal of pressure to come to an agreement this time around. Luckily the holdout ended earlier than the last time, after an extension was agreed to; the contract made Aaron Donald the highest paid defensive player ever, for a few days, and would come out to $135M over 6 years.

Preseason
McVay made a daring decision to not play most of the starters in the preseason, and instead let them rest and make their starts first on Week 1. Standout performers included John Franklin - Myers (DE), John Kelly (RB), & Joseph Noteboom (LT). Specifically John Kelly got a good deal of hype as a backup for Gurley; against the Texans he took 15 carries for 64 yards & 2 TDs. A promising performance also came from rookie LT Joseph Noteboom, who held his own well against the Texans' pass rush. However, as always it's preseason & so it doesn't mean much.

Final Thoughts

This was a truly wonderful season to be a part of as a Rams fan - I ended up going to almost all of the home games for the first time ever & and it was such a wild ride. The team looked as dominant as can be in certain parts of the season, while other times they felt like they'd be bounced in round 1 of the playoffs, making those wins so much juicier (especially against Dem Boys). In the end, they came up short in the Super Bowl, but it still felt like a close game for the most part. Looking forward to many more years drooling over McVay's dreamy face. Not sure where we'll land in 2019 but I don't think we'll be shit, and I'm looking forward to the future regardless.
Shoutouts: Everyone on LosAngelesRams, and u/therealDoctorKay for putting this on and dealing with all of the nonsense that comes with that.

Thanks for reading!

[OC] Politicians Killing the Planet

So realestnwah posted this article to /LateStageCapitalism and it caught my eye. I decided that there has to be a reason that all of these politicians are denying climate change or the human cause of it, so what was it? Well, we already know, don’t we? So I went to OpenSecrets and I started hunting down contributions from companies who stand to lose something if the government intervenes to help stop climate change. I sorted by career contributions. This is gonna be long.
Alabama
Richard Shelby's first and third all time contributors are Southern Co., a gas and energy company, and Drummond Company, a coal mining company.
Robert Aderholt also has those two companies in his top four.
Mo Brooks seems to be clean from a energy-company-finance-backing standpoint.
Gary Palmer has Southern Co as his fourth largest donor.
Alaska
Dan Sullivan's fifth largest contributor is the Koch brothers.
Don Young's largest contributor is VECO Corporation, an oil pipeline service.
Arizona
Andy Biggs' largest donor is Club for Growth, a conservative organization that advocates against government intervention to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
Paul Gosar's third largest contributor is Pinnacle West Capital, a holding company that owns two energy companies: Arizona Public Service and Bright Canyon Energy.
Debbie Lesko's second largest contributor is Pinncale West Capital and her fifth largest is the Koch brothers.

Bruce Westerman has Murphy Oil at #2 and Koch Industries at #11.
Steve Womack has also been hit up by National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, for the tune of $34,500.
California (Goddammit, you're supposed to be an American bastion of progressive values. The fuck, home state?)
Duncan Hunter's top donor is General Atomics, an, among other things, energy company. Although they mainly deal in nuclear energy, so they should be pushing for renewables. Plus Duncan just denies that climate change is man-made, not that it isn't happening, so who the fuck knows.
Doug LaMalfa rakes it in from California Dairies Inc, National Cattleman's Beef Association and Pacific Gas & Electric.
Tom McClintock gets money from Occidental Petroleum, Valero Energy, Vaquero Energy and the Koch brothers.
Devin Nunes is just a piece of shit in general, but he also gets big bucks from California Dairies Inc, Edison, the Koch bros and Chevron.

Scott Tipton's political tips from SG Interests, an oil and natural gas company, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association as well as the cock tips of the Koch brothers.
Florida
Marco Rubio. Do I really need to look this one up? Yes, because he ain't special and fuck him. Well, I guess Club for Growth thinks he's special because they've given him ~$700,000. He's also received big bucks from Nextera Energy.
Info on Neal Dunn shows he gets a bunch of money from doctor's organizations and a bunch of money from beer companies. So maybe he's just hypocritical.
Bill Posey also doesn't appear to have any financial conflicts based on my admittedly shallow research.
Ted Yoho is linked to the National Cattleman's Beef Association, the Koch brothers and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
John Rutherford doesn't appear to have any direct financial conflicts concerning climate change, but he does receive funds from Prosperity Action, which is a PAC chaired by Paul Ryan, so fuck that guy. And extra fuck Paul Ryan.
Mario Diaz-Balart gets a hefty contribution from NextEra Energy.
Georgia
David Perdue gets big money from Club for Growth, Southern Co, the Koch brothers and Alliant Energy.
Richard Allen receives ~$20,000 from Southern Co.
Jody Hice has Georgia Power as a major donor, but he's also received money from a solar power corporation, although a bit more from Georgia Power.

Darin LaHood receives payments from Marquis Energy and Exelon Corp.
Indiana
Todd Young has received $86,000 from Club for Growth.

Larry Bucshon receives major donations from Vectren Corp, a large energy holding firm, as well as Koch Enterprises and Peabody Energy.
Iowa
Chuck Grassley gets a lot of money from Nextera Energy.
Joni Ernst receives contributions from Ford Motor Co and Beef Products Inc.
Steve King, this fucking racist, has received near $300,000 from Club for Growth, because of fucking course he has. Also gets a bundle from Koch Industries.
Kansas
Pat Roberts has made a lot of money from the Koch brothers as well as the National Cattleman's Beef Association.
Kentucky
The moment you've all been waiting for: Mitch McTurtle. Peabody Energy and General Electric (which is kind of a push maybe). I'm sure there's more, but I can hardly stand to even seen this reptile's name on my screen, so I stopped looking.
Rand Paul: Club for Growth (seriously fuck this organization), Murray Energy and Koch Industries.
James Comer seems cleanish, minus $12,500 from Ford Motor Co.
Thomas Massie is buddies with Club for Growth, Marathon Petroleum and Koch Industries.
Louisiana
Bill Cassidy's second largest donor is Cajun Industries, which manufacturers materials for Exxon and other oil companies, and also receives money from Koch Industries and Hise Co, an oil company headquartered in Louisiana.
Clay Higgins is new to the game but his second largest donor is Harvey Gulf, a marine transportation company that services deep-water operations in the Gulf of Mexico. Their fleet is actually full of badass looking ships with helicopter landing pads attached to the bow and shit, but their biggest clients are oil companies. He also gets money directly from Cox Oil.
Steve Scalise has Edison Chouset Offshore as his second largest donor. Like Harvey Gulf, they're also a marine transport company that caters mainly to oil companies. In fact, many politicians in the list before this have received money from them, but I neglected to add those. Scalise also gets money from Entergy Corp, Koch Industries and Cajun Industries.
Maryland
Andy Harris gets major money from Club for Growth and Koch Industries.
Michigan
Justin Amash is also a member of shittiest club around, Club for Growth. In addition he gets funds from Wolverine Gas & Oil and Koch Industries.

Tim Walberg: Club for Growth, CMS Energy, DTE Energy, Ford Motor Co, Koch Industries and General Motors.
Minnesota
Tom Emmer gets tens of thousands from Land O'Lakes, which might be a stretch, but they deal pretty heavily in dairy. I might be convinced to take this one off the list. Other than that he appears clean.
Collin Peterson. The only Democrat on this list, this dude is all about the farmers. Dairy Farmers of America, Associated Milk Producers, Land O'Lakes and Koch Industries.
Mississippi
Roger Wicker gets donations from Ergon Inc, a petroleum company, as well as General Atomics, Entergy Corp and Southern Co.

Roy Blunt gets paid by Emerson Electric, Monsanto Co, General Electric, Peabody Energy and Dairy Farmers of America.

North Dakota
Kevin Cramer is all up in that conflict money, holy shit. Energy Transfer Equity, Oasis Petroleum, Select Energy Services, MBI Energy Services, Koch Industries, Cody Oil & Gas, Marathon Oil, Lignite Energy Council, Alliance Coal, Devon Energy and National Auto Dealers Association. No wonder he hated the Paris agreement.
John Hoeven isn't much cleaner. Murray Energy, NextEra Energy, Edison Chouset Offshore, Xcel Energy, MBI Energy Services and Devon Energy.
North Dakota is one of the most beautiful states we have, too. What the fuck guys. Get your greedy shit together.

Bill Johnson takes money from Murray Energy, National Auto Dealers Association, American Electric Power, National Mining Association, FirstEnergy Corp, Koch Industries and Chesapeake Energy.
Warren Davidson takes from Club for Growth and National Auto Dealers Association.
Oklahoma
Probably the most famous of these deniers is Jim Inhofe. He's the guy who threw the snowball in Congress to own the libs. I wonder if he got that idea from any of these backers: Koch Industries, Murray Energy, Devon Energy, Exxon Mobil, OGE Energy or Chevron.
James Lankford's top four are Devon Energy, OGE Energy, Koch Industries and Chesapeake Energy, as well as taking money from Energy Transfer Equity, Exxon Mobil and Ward Petroleum.

Tennessee
Marsha Blackburn is paid by Club for Growth and Koch Industries to the tune of $200,000+.
Chuck Fleischmann, at a glance, doesn't seem to have financial motivations for saying that we should murder Al Gore by putting him on an iceberg. Maybe that's just good ol' fashioned partisanship.
Phil Roe's most obvious conflict of interest is to Eastman Chemical company, which produces plastics, among other things.
Texas (Texas by far has the most reps here. Texas really hates the Earth from some reason. What the fuck y'all?)

Mike Gallagher doesn't appear to have any financial conflicts at a glance.
Glenn Grothman has such donors as Koch Industries and Alliant Energy.
Jim Sensenbrenner's comments seem relatively sensible, whatever that's worth, but he still takes money from National Auto Dealers Association and General Electric.
Wyoming
John Barrasso thinks the US will continue to rely on fossil fuels and coal. Wonder if that has anything to do with his donors? They include Pinnacle West Capital, an energy company, Chevron, NextEra Energy, Exelon Corp, Murray Energy, Koch Industries and Exxon Mobil.
Mike "Snowfall Disproves Global Warming" Enzi takes that sweet lobby money from National Auto Dealers Association, Exxon Mobil, National Mining Association, Peabody Energy and Arch Coal.
Liz "Yes, Those Cheneys" Cheney: Halliburton (no shit) and Pinnacle West Capital.
Thanks for reading all of this. Some personal notes: this shit is seriously disgusting. It's really enraging how little it takes to buy someone off to help destroy the world. Of the 131 politicians from the article, there were only five I couldn’t find financial conflicts with. That’s 96% of these people, upon even the most cursory of glances, that have been proven to prioritize money over the health of the Earth. I can’t stress this enough: Fuck. Them.
I left off airline companies and (for the most part) chemical companies who produce plastics. I don't know why I did this and I'm not gonna go back and change it now. But if you're clicking through the links, keep that in mind, too.
I've only used the one source, but OpenSecrets is widely used by reputable sources to find campaign contribution information. They are quite transparent with their methodology on their site.
All those repeat companies are absolutely not a coincidence. These are the types of conspiracy theories that people should be worried about.
I just went with obvious companies who stand to lose something from government intervention to combat climate change. I definitely didn't look up every company that was on a rep's page. If you find additional things you think I should add, let me know.
If you catch any errors I've made or think I need to take off certain companies, let me know and we can talk about it.
Again, thanks for reading. And fucking VOTE.

Tennessee
Marsha Blackburn is paid by Club for Growth and Koch Industries to the tune of $200,000+.

Mike "Snowfall Disproves Global Warming" Enzi takes that sweet lobby money from National Auto Dealers Association, Exxon Mobil, National Mining Association, Peabody Energy and Arch Coal.
Liz "Yes, Those Cheneys" Cheney: Halliburton (no shit) and Pinnacle West Capital.
Thanks for reading all of this. Some personal notes: this shit is seriously disgusting. It's really enraging how little it takes to buy someone off to help destroy the world. Of the 131 politicians from the article, there were only five I couldn’t find financial conflicts with. That’s 96% of these people, upon even the most cursory of glances, that have been proven to prioritize money over the health of the Earth. I can’t stress this enough: Fuck. Them.
I left off airline companies and (for the most part) chemical companies who produce plastics. I don't know why I did this and I'm not gonna go back and change it now. But if you're clicking through the links, keep that in mind, too.
I've only used the one source, but OpenSecrets is widely used by reputable sources to find campaign contribution information. They are quite transparent with their methodology on their site.
All those repeat companies are absolutely not a coincidence. These are the types of conspiracy theories that people should be worried about.
I just went with obvious companies who stand to lose something from government intervention to combat climate change. I definitely didn't look up every company that was on a rep's page. If you find additional things you think I should add, let me know.
If you catch any errors I've made or think I need to take off certain companies, let me know and we can talk about it.
Again, thanks for reading. And fucking VOTE.

[OC] Politicians Killing the Planet

So realestnwah posted this article to /LateStageCapitalism and it caught my eye. I decided that there has to be a reason that all of these politicians are denying climate change or the human cause of it, so what was it? Well, we already know, don’t we? So I went to OpenSecrets and I started hunting down contributions from companies who stand to lose something if the government intervenes to help stop climate change. I sorted by career contributions. This is gonna be long.
Alabama
Richard Shelby's first and third all time contributors are Southern Co., a gas and energy company, and Drummond Company, a coal mining company.
Robert Aderholt also has those two companies in his top four.
Mo Brooks seems to be clean from a energy-company-finance-backing standpoint.
Gary Palmer has Southern Co as his fourth largest donor.
Alaska
Dan Sullivan's fifth largest contributor is the Koch brothers.
Don Young's largest contributor is VECO Corporation, an oil pipeline service.
Arizona
Andy Biggs' largest donor is Club for Growth, a conservative organization that advocates against government intervention to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
Paul Gosar's third largest contributor is Pinnacle West Capital, a holding company that owns two energy companies: Arizona Public Service and Bright Canyon Energy.
Debbie Lesko's second largest contributor is Pinncale West Capital and her fifth largest is the Koch brothers.
David Schweikert has Koch Industries in his top ten and has received tens of thousands from Salt River Project, an energy firm.
Arkansas
Tom Cotton has Club for Growth has his top donor and Murphy Oil in his top eight.
John Boozman has received $29,000 from National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
Rick Crawford has received $26,000 from National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
Bruce Westerman has Murphy Oil at #2 and Koch Industries at #11.
Steve Womack has also been hit up by National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, for the tune of $34,500.
California (Goddammit, you're supposed to be an American bastion of progressive values. The fuck, home state?)
Duncan Hunter's top donor is General Atomics, an, among other things, energy company. Although they mainly deal in nuclear energy, so they should be pushing for renewables. Plus Duncan just denies that climate change is man-made, not that it isn't happening, so who the fuck knows.
Doug LaMalfa rakes it in from California Dairies Inc, National Cattleman's Beef Association and Pacific Gas & Electric.
Tom McClintock gets money from Occidental Petroleum, Valero Energy, Vaquero Energy and the Koch brothers.
Devin Nunes is just a piece of shit in general, but he also gets big bucks from California Dairies Inc, Edison, the Koch bros and Chevron.

Scott Tipton's political tips from SG Interests, an oil and natural gas company, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association as well as the cock tips of the Koch brothers.
Florida
Marco Rubio. Do I really need to look this one up? Yes, because he ain't special and fuck him. Well, I guess Club for Growth thinks he's special because they've given him ~$700,000. He's also received big bucks from Nextera Energy.
Info on Neal Dunn shows he gets a bunch of money from doctor's organizations and a bunch of money from beer companies. So maybe he's just hypocritical.
Bill Posey also doesn't appear to have any financial conflicts based on my admittedly shallow research.
Ted Yoho is linked to the National Cattleman's Beef Association, the Koch brothers and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
John Rutherford doesn't appear to have any direct financial conflicts concerning climate change, but he does receive funds from Prosperity Action, which is a PAC chaired by Paul Ryan, so fuck that guy. And extra fuck Paul Ryan.
Mario Diaz-Balart gets a hefty contribution from NextEra Energy.
Georgia
David Perdue gets big money from Club for Growth, Southern Co, the Koch brothers and Alliant Energy.
Richard Allen receives ~$20,000 from Southern Co.

  • This isn't Carter versus people United States of America
  • This is Carter AND the people of the United States of America versus JTTF
  • That's what the case should say
  • So there it is the New York Public Library you can do your research right there come back
  • And do the W's do the W's on your favorite case
  • And come back and say hey the Carter Princeton sins interesting she's a woman I believe because they keep saying she she she 127 days of data following her around
  • I'm interested to see where she is she a banker or a schoolteacher or as and nursers a lawyer or doctor or what does she do and how did she get in this mess and every every one of these people has a story
  • So let's get somebody to do a quick do the W's your favorite one will list it and we'll try to get them on crowdsource the truth and let them tell their story to the American people, rather than having to wait 10 12 years like Lionel said on the brilliant piece of interview that Jason Goodman just posted a crowd source of truth: innocent and proven until proven indigent
  • Let's change that system
  • Why do we have to go broke, and then you have to then have your life destroyed even though you're innocent to prove your case
  • Why can't we change it the let's turn the tables for Carter whatever her first name is let's turn the tables for Jones let's figure out what what's going on Graham in the bank robbery
  • I just want to know what why how the government countered with that we've already got information back here an hour later the train ride it to me to get here on the mosaic theory of the 4th amendment that's putting all the metadata together in these fusion centers
  • So then illegally search your life and make all kinds of estimations on the metadata to invade your personal privacy
  • That mosaic theory is now at one week we're already got a legal standard that's come back and said one week is the mosaic theory
  • So tell these quick stories
  • Tell these quickest vignettes
  • Do the W's come back to us and we'll summarize the W's and we'll get that out to the jury to you as quick as we can and we'll tell the story for these people
  • Because they are the ones that are stepping up and telling the truth and and the truth to power
  • I was on you traces Utrice Leid's show show following our interview my interview one interview two on public people's radio network was telling truth to power

[Draft Class Review Series] 1996 Class "The Lawyer & Tedy Class"

Central Hub
1995 Season
Drew Bledsoe struggled in his 3rd season, throwing 13 touchdowns and 16 interceptions on 50.8% passing. The struggles would reflect as the Patriots finished 6-10 and failed to make the playoffs.
Draft Picks
Terry Glenn- WR, Ohio State: Round 1, Pick 7 (7th Overall)
Glenn walked onto the Ohio State football team, eventually earning an athletic scholarship. In his senior year, he was named a consensus first-team All-American and won the Fred Biletnikoff Award for the top wide receiver. Glenn made an immediate impact as a rookie, catching 90 passes for 1,132 yards and 6 scores. In 1999, he was named to his only Pro Bowl. During the 2001 season, Glenn was arrested for assault and battery on the mother of his son. Because of this, Belichick deactivated him for most of the 2001 season and was traded to Green Bay the following summer. He wouldn’t stay long as he was traded after a season to the Cowboys. His tenure with the Cowboys was not much better, as he was arrested several times in his 5 seasons there. After his release in 2008, Glenn retired from football. He has still had troubles with the law, including a DWI, grand theft auto, and marijuana possession. Despite his issues, Glenn was very talented and his highlights can be found here.
Lawyer Milloy- DB, Washington: Round 2, Pick 6 (36th Overall)
Before Milloy was drafted by the Patriots, he had some New England ties. In 1994, he was a pitcher for the University of Washington team that faced Georgia Tech in the College World Series regional- a team that featured future Red Sox stars Jason Varitek and Nomar Garciaparra. Over his 7 year career in New England, Milloy was a standout piece in the secondary, starting in 106 games and picking off 19 passes. Additionally, Milloy was named to 4 Pro Bowls and earned a first team All-Pro bid in 1999. As a defensive co-captain, he helped lead the Patriots to Super Bowl XXXVI, defending 3 passes against the Greatest Show on Turf. 5 days before the opening kickoff of the 2003 season, he was released and signed with the Bills immediately. Over the next 8 years, he’d play between the Bills, Falcons, and Seahawks before retiring after the 2010 season. In 2015, the Washington Post’s Adam Kilgore wrote a story on Belichick, who told a story about giving up his Super Bowl XXXVI hotel room to Lawyer Milloy
Tedy Bruschi- LB, Arizona: Round 3, Pick 25 (86th Overall)
My favorite Patriot of all-time, without a doubt. Bruschi played defensive line at Arizona but was converted to linebacker due to his size. He’d mostly appear on special teams as a rookie, but would get 2 sacks in Super Bowl XXXI against the Packers, just shy of the record 3 set in that game by Reggie White. In 1999, Bruschi got his first full time starting season where he’d be a key cog for the rest of his time. Several weeks after winning his 3rd Super Bowl, Bruschi suffered a mild stroke due to a small hole in his heart. Despite that, Bruschi rehabbed like hell and returned for a Week 8 matchup against the Bills. His resilience earned him the NFL Comeback Player of the Year. Prior to the 2009 season, Bruschi retired from the NFL after 13 seasons. He’d be inducted to the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2013 and named defensive captain for the Patriots 50th Anniversary Team. Currently, Bruschi in an ESPN Analyst, where’s he has been very vocal in defending the Pats.
Heath Irwin- G, Colorado: Round 4, Pick 6 (101st Overall)
The nephew of legendary golfer Hale Irwin, the former Colorado lineman played 3 of his 6 seasons in New England. As a rookie, he wouldn’t earn any time on the field. In 1997, Irwin cracked the 53 man roster, appearing in every game. Primarily a backup, Irwin got his first full time starting gig in his 3rd full season in 1999, starting in 13 of 15 games that year. After the 1999 season, Irwin signed with the Dolphins, playing 2 of his final 3 seasons with them before retiring with the Rams in 2002. After football, Heath founded a commercial real estate firm in Colorado with his brother Blake. Fun fact, prior to the Gronkowskis, the Irwins were the last set of brothers to play for the Patriots.
Chris Sullivan- DE, Boston College: Round 4, Pick 24 (119th Overall)
The pride of North Attleboro, MA, Sullivan was a 4-year starter at Boston College. After being drafted by his hometown Patriots, Sullivan played 6 of his 7 seasons for the team, appearing in 63 games. After the 1999 season, he joined the Steelers for the 2000 season. He’d return to the Patriots as a reserve over the next 2 years, earning a ring from Super Bowl XXXVI. He retired from football after the 2002 season due to addiction and anxiety. For years, he battled addiction and was arrested for driving under the influence and possession of heroin with intent to distribute. In 2008, Sullivan finally sought help and has been sober since. Currently, he travels around Massachusetts, sharing his story of addiction to high school students.
Kantroy Barber- RB, West Virginia: Round 4, Pick 29 (124th Overall)
Barber played 4 seasons in the NFL. He spent his first 2 seasons with the Patriots and Panthers. In 1998, he signed with the Dolphins, spending 2 years with them and appearing in his only 2 career games.
John Elmore- G, Texas: Round 5, Pick 7 (139th Overall)
Elmore would not appear in a game for the Patriots, nor in the NFL.
Christian Peter- DT, Nebraska: Round 5, Pick 17 (149th Overall)
Peter wouldn’t appear in a game for the Patriots and was cut a week after being drafted. During his college years, Peter had 8 run-ins with the law, including raping a woman twice in two days. He was also accused of sexual assault and groping and was only suspended for a 1993 exhibition game. In 1997, he joined the Giants, where he’d play 4 of his 6 NFL seasons. In that time, Peter started 31 of 55 games and accumulated 2.5 sacks. After the 2000 season, the former Cornhusker spent 2 years between the Colts and Bears before retiring after the 2002 season.
Chris Griffin- TE, New Mexico: Round 6, Pick 6 (173rd Overall)
Griffin would not appear in a game for the Patriots, nor in the NFL. Currently, he owns a landscaping company in Phoenix.
Marrio Grier- RB, Tenn-Chattanooga: Round 6, Pick 28 (195th Overall)
Grier appeared in 32 games over 2 years with the Patriots, the only 2 of his career. He’d rush 60 times for 180 yards and 2 scores in that time.
Devin Wyman- DT, Kentucky State: Round 6, Pick 39 (206th Overall)
Wyman played 2 seasons for the Patriots, only appearing in 15 games over that time. He’d be cut in 1998. He’d enjoy an AFL career afterwards, playing with the San Jose Sabercats from 2003-2005, where he won Arena Bowl XVIII. After that, he’d play 3 seasons between the Dallas Desperados and Utah Blaze, earning a First Team All-Arena spot in 2007. In 2015, he was named as coach for the Texas Revolution, where he helped lead the team to the inaugural CIF Championship.
Lovett Purnell- TE, West Virginia: Round 7, Pick 7 (216th Overall)
Purnell played 4 seasons in the NFL with his first 3 coming in New England. During his time as a Patriot, Purnell caught 33 passes in 34 games for 149 yards and 5 touchdowns. After the 1998 season, he was traded for a draft pick to the Ravens and played in 2 games before being released. In 2001, he played for the Chicago Enforcers of the XFL under former Patriots coach Ron Meyer.
J.R. Conrad- G, Oklahoma: Round 7, Pick 38 (247th Overall)
Conrad wouldn’t appear in a game for the Patriots, serving on the team’s practice squad in 1996. He was cut by new coach Pete Carroll in the 1997 preseason before signing with the Jets and coach Parcells. He played in 12 games in his only season. After football, he’d return to Oklahoma and coach high school football. Today, Conrad serves as a sales representative for a strength training equipment company.
Ray Lucas- QB, Rutgers: Undrafted
The Rutgers QB was signed out of college and played 1 season with the Patriots. Lucas would sign with the Jets, serving as a backup for the first 2 seasons. In 1999, he started 9 games after Vinny Testaverde was injured. He’d throw for 1,678 yards and 14 scores, leading the Jets to a 6-3 record in his time. In 2001, he signed with the Dolphins getting 6 starts over that time before retiring. Currently, he is an analyst for the Jets on SNY.
Adam Vinatieri- K, South Dakota State: Undrafted
Mr. Clutch. Automatic Adam. Adam Bomb. Iceman. Without a doubt, the clutchest kicker in NFL history. Without the former Jackrabbit, the Patriots may be 2 Super Bowls short. He began his professional career with the Amsterdam Admirals in 1996 as a placekicker and punter before signing as an UDFA. During his rookie season, he received praise for chasing down and tackling Herschel Walker. In his 10 years with the team, Vinatieri kicked 263 of 321 field goals, 18 of which came as game-winners with less than a minute left. He also earned 2 Pro Bowl bids and 2 First Team All-Pro spots. He is still active today, entering his 12th year with the Colts, where he has since won a Super Bowl and earned another Pro Bowl and All-Pro bid.

Transcript of George Webb Video Series Part 110: "Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen" [@Georgwebb / #HRCRatlne]

  • Petraeus Three Ring Circus - YouTube
  • I'm gonna call this one we had a Steel frame about halfway through the last session
  • So it's really really gonna start picking up I'll quickly summarize this on Day 298 we really don't just have ones the one ring here of one David Patraeus ring again you have to follow the evidence and lo and see who could put a six-person spy ring into Congress really would it be just these Pakistani nationals coming to this country or maybe UAE Royals doing that all by themselves no they engaged in a partnership with Hillary Clinton beginning in 2004 at least I think the actual partnership goes back to 1998 when they saw it when Bill Clinton signed pressure presidential decision directive 62 which told the CIA to work with the FBI or told the FBI to work with the CIA but anyway could that it's a one spy ring of six people been established with no help just does not stand to reason this is one of the things that when I was on you trace lead show was one of the first things she said was this doesn't pop this couldn't possibly be put together by six people all by themselves that you have just moved here and we're really gonna find it's three different rings
  • So that's why I'm calling it the three different the three-ring circus and then you're gonna see this dark weapons here and I'm putting DU here's just one example of a dark weapon of depleted uranium but david petraeus his job is to get this these weapons to these different rebels and you're you can't just ship it out on a regular ship and say they're there they go from the port of norfolk there goes the dark weapons there goes to Cameron white phosphorus there goes the depleted uranium from Pakistan we just to a shipment of you can't really do that you can't say Bob I should have a big party you have to ship it via a covert method
  • Now the
  • So that's the weapons ring and the spy ring
  • Now if there's a drug ring with Javed here we'll get to it I believe there is just basically this is a rod control over again with me to airport but but then to get the to ship the stuff you you there's a double usage here for the rods the Imran family being UAE Royals and I used the word Royals very flexibly being the kind of relatives through one particular sheiks harem that's how they become Royals but anyway this these folks have this whole family of immigrants whole family
  • Now have diplomatic passports and they can be used for this shipping thing and then the vehicle for the shipping is the third ring is gonna be the spy ring it is a car theft ring that's the way you ship the weapons
  • So you have to have the espionage ring which is the imran and that's really the brothers the two two maybe three maybe imran maybe omar etc plus you need a runner like jamal whoops sorry about that go back one and then you need a weapons the weapons ring obviously you need to get these horrible weapons to the diocese that's going to be difficult
  • So you need some kind of cover
  • So you the cover is the cars
  • So this is basically david petraeus this three-ring circus and obviously you're gonna launder the money through NADRA which is going to be natalia silva
  • So there are all the kind of the people explained
  • Now it's going to be way bigger than just six people i'll tell you that if you if you missed the last episode this believe em runs distantly related and as his family is related to this emirate of UAE I believe that's how it gets to diplomatic passports this person here also has several weapons or arms kind of companies in rack as well
  • So he's directly benefiting I believe Imran and family are gonna be shareholders in that as well safe cage is just one of the companies we've identified
  • So far but we're gonna get there again this rack has been well-known for Iranian influence and as the port of smuggling for weapons into Arad the center of gravity is
  • Now this is not me saying this this is his brother saying this this is his half-brother saying this that that this port is the center of gravity for smuggling of parts with the Iranian influence again not me it's of spam his brother and again the person in the dealership with Imran is a Letarte
  • So Hezbollah car dealership he's obviously no stranger to crime with all the fake billing sexual misconduct the IRS avoiding taxes etc
  • So I last episode I grouped it into three groups really this is the first spiring group these two brothers or this could be one person which is a run of imran as a composite and then this Jamal I believe is gonna be three maybe maybe three to five people that are doing the running of the BlackBerry's mostly to parties and receptions not into actual Congress and that's why I don't that's why I think most people in Congress don't have any idea where these people are
  • So again I say it's not only going to if you're gonna compromise the Congress that's all well and good for getting the go-ahead to ship the weapons to get NDAA passed and to get whatever you appropriations you need for Isis but then you can have the problem of how do you actually get it approved State Department has the approval of this stuff
  • So dtt see you need contacts there the old Andrew Shapiro contact obviously this is where you need beacon global beacon global basically as a shadow CIA consulting company they're gonna put together all this these 19 different Blackberries these secure Blackberries again they're gonna have a whole bunch of contractors working for them that were at CIA but this is the key you need you need a secure methodology for negotiating the deals you might get the money but
  • Now you need to negotiate the deals to get your cut and these are gonna be all of all the people involved
  • So again right away the conspiracy is expanding again the reason why the pilot the number of the pile of Blackberries has to equal the House report on the number of thefts just remember that the pile of Blackberries is going to be what Imran takes out of here on the 8th of July right and that's what ends up getting the pile of Blackberries here
  • Now I'm not saying they didn't go back and forth after that but they thought that they were going to be exposed on July 8th and
  • So they brought them out and then they put them back in on the 12th and alpha Jalloh has this little shootout with on the Capitol Hill but the original testimony by Andrew Taggert is the twenty Blackberries to make this make these deals happen if you don't believe me believe Hillary Hillary is talking about having Anthony Weiner's trusted staff deliver these secure phones we just need unmanned Trump just meets on masks that one name and this is the famous Anthony's trusted staff email again the CENTCOM emails are there that's why Petraeus is using he's using Jill Kelly's house as a brownstone to he did this in Princeton he's done it many many many times he sets up these operations all over the world the countries all over the world why wouldn't he why wouldn't he compromise all of his other generals when General Allen lost his job because of this guess who gate became the guy who ran CENTCOM David Petraeus
  • So
  • Now this is the other operation which is
  • Now this is the cake in our play for the satellite technology that's being sold for super Co all these your your agent the expert and used to selling it selling the technology all over the world is going to be it's going to be surviving um her mother the showcase to sell it is gonna be a low horror Pakistan I had a company called nano set if you remember correctly the name of the company that is started by M rata wadis data set
  • So those that Nana set Technology Forum in Lahore Pakistan is working on where this civil military political military surveillance systems can be sold it's gonna be called the NADRA system the same name as the bank that's gonna be processing all the old gotten gains for selling all this stuff
  • So not just the catch-all for everything not just the cars not just the satellite technology not just a drug technology the virus technology it's the funnel for everything it's the BCCI in this in this setup that's why you need Natalia Silva for the cars to do the accounting around the cars which the third ring the car ring is just is is what the CIA calls a proprietary we can't sell Senate there in an open box it can be opened by a customs and border person along the way we need to put it inside a car we need to hide it inside the car panels we have a whole team to do that that's how we get the weapons there plus we're gonna have the safety of the diplomatic container
  • So that's why you need heat Oh Holley again it's gonna be way more than 80 Democrats that have been compromised since 2004 since David Petraeus put the spy ring in place but the reason for the 20 burglaries is you've currently got 20 couriers running around Congress making copying every PDF that they can get their hands on because every time they send a PDFs or from one person to another to a chief of staff or whatever that goes directly to em Ron stash of his server there's em Ron server it's gonna be a BlackBerry Enterprise Server the I believe the other three laptops are gonna be near as Wi-Fi boosters near these conference rooms after having walked around Capitol Hill and going into these different rooms at these these house panels convenient I'm more convinced than ever that these are the Wi-Fi boosters in these three the other ones the house of is the Library of Congress again very little resistance on Congress at Congress just one guide to Santis calling for investigations in a very kind of milquetoast way we've got different stuff on the port of Charleston excuse me not Charleston but the port of Jacksonville which is in his territory I said I would move forward with that if I didn't get more aggressiveness from Congress in a caucus I asked for a caucus to come forward not not not feeling it guys you either bring it forward or I have to bring it forward again I go back to the diplomatic containers and the Maersk I believe that those four containers are going to be the hem runs or Imran family shipping through Awan transport to the port of Charleston I do believe it nope none of those four containers here left a boat in Charleston they moved it to Savannah and then they were cleared by another Mexico vessel called called the Maersk Ana or the Animus and again you're gonna see UAE Royals on the manifest for those ships I won't talk about my case other than to say if I get my if I get my 70 exemption
  • Now that I can prove standing and the FBI does provide me my file I can prove that directly I don't need to rely on any other sources we'll get to JTTF jason said told me he was heading up to Boston to do some of the Boston bomber stuff I think if people just see the places that were involved the convenience stores that both are used to to market the heroin and the dock where they dump people's bodies and just though the whole place where all the sight of knives were and the fact that the Russians warned us that we were bringing in Terrace and and the fact that grant Fuller basically I had I think he married the daughter or his daughter married quote-unquote married tsarnaev's uncle I mean all these things that's
  • So tightly tied to to Graham Fuller this whole operation in Boston that's gonna be coming it's all about Jason and Trish talk about that not familiar the JTTF ten DoD 26 Federal but these are basically just Petraeus infiltrations of the 26 different departments basically eliminate anybody start to start deep dives on everybody in the executive ranks and start eliminating people that aren't on your side
  • So that you can consolidate our leadership in all different 26 agencies and then you've got five front organizations four presentations to CNN in Congress
  • So as I said before the auto ring the third ring is just going to be and they even call it cam ring and I mean they're the entendre is they're just they're are replete with entendre but you have to steal the cars just have a vehicle and again you don't want to be buying them and creating a big audit rail track for these stolen weapons you want to steal the cars therefore no traceability you want to get the weapons in the car you want to go through a high level offense it's already proven and trained fake the documents get it on the in the container and then get it to they get it to the African or Middle Eastern Minister that we're trying to compromise we just want to listen to their phone calls and track them that's all and I won't go through how actually this was done mechanically but here's the EImrans a car dealership I believe this is a meeting point mainly for people that are involved as go-betweens The Ambassadors probably not going to go over there to the car dealership but the Ambassador could have a driver drive over and and with a bucket of cash in the back and say I'm gonna leave the car here to be worked on two or three days of course in the car the cash is removed at night
  • So I think this is a cash transfer point and really cars are going to be more up here drivers are going to be staying up here and then they're gonna be driven straight down to the port of the Port Washington Washington Navy Yard or Washington National Harbor one of those two I think it's gonna be National Harbor where the cars are gonna be driven on and but the loading and storage of the d-u Evans is that gonna be at the Navy Yard
  • So storage long-term storage for the weapons is Fort Belvoir they're gonna have some kind of capability to fly in here or fly in here to Anacostia Air Force Base for white phosphorus from Florida I think the DU coming from South Carolina could be flown could be coming by ship we really don't know at this point but these weapons are going to be kind of organized into a total order and then shipped out of National Harbor I won't go into my lawsuit right
  • Now other than just to say that there will be a follow-up if you if Petraeus does actually put the program in for Smith month modernization which requires recruiting journalists to then like CNN Donnie O'Sullivan to then try to Sully people that would bring the truth to the American people then there's obvious of damages that are going to be involved in that again you need to have trained operatives you need to release your mind from the fact that whatever the local newspaper says from the information they were given by CIA that they print you have to release your mind from that and think about operations that the CIA has done in every country in the world why wouldn't they do it here again you do not want traceability you do not want to be buying cars and then putting these weapons in him and then shipping him because then everybody says hey lo see how you bought these cars in it then they ship them with all these weapons in them the CIA is running this operation you don't that this is a much better system here this is why Alpha jela keeps getting out time and time again got out of New Jersey he got out of New York and that's why he is the current guy even though you think it's the 18 year old he's the guy currently in Washington DC this project is still going
  • So this I'll say the classic cars
  • Now this classic cars DC is going to be the way of getting these cars to the oil and defense ministers different ministers that they're targeting that's because basically CIA was shut down and these these two deaths may be deaths may not be deaths may be just a way of eliminating
  • Now that the ring has been exposed way of just eliminating prosecutors for from follow-up either way one is bad murders the second is obvious cover-up
  • So whatever the two scenarios I don't have enough evidence either way I do know for instance in this one there's bullet holes in the basement and the car dealership won't give any more information
  • So sometimes it's hard to say whether it's a cover-up or an actual murder but it's one of the two but I do believe DC cars that's gonna be the one and why do I say that well because we got a luca brasi going around to different dealers killing them and hiring these young ms-13 guys and then killing off the ms-13 guys after the operations are over with again again Hillary's server Huma server unwinds just released the metadata and we're done or the if we can recover any information from Imran server sorry this a lot of this is repeat but I kept having these technical problems it's one of those things that bears repeating anyway because there's a lot of complexity going on but there you have it David Petraeus this three-ring circus
  • Trello - Visual Research - TOC, Index, Search, Tags - YouTube
  • Ok So I hope everybody can hear me
  • I'm trying to talk a little bit louder but I'm going to reintroduce the Trello board
  • What happened last time we got about half way to about day 54 to day 150 and then the Awan brother story broke
  • So what I'm gonna do is it reintroduce this as sort of a visual table of contents
  • It's also a research tool that people can use to go back at previous episodes let's say you want to adjust research David Petraeus or you just want to research zero footprint or Marc Turi or you just want to research Timber Sycamore or you just want to research Syria or you just want to pick up any particular thread in the research
  • So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna create two Trello boards it just thinks cell solitaire
  • If you know how to play solitaire how to do Trello
  • So just think cards Trello is cards Trello is solitaire just like you'd have columns and solitaire and then rows in solitaire easy stuff
  • So there's three buckets really I'm gonna put day 54 to day 94
  • This is when the series started
  • And everybody has their own favorite day that they started that they started scrunching
  • Then the second bucket here and I call that Braverman disappears
  • And then what what came out of that was this whole connection to David Petraeus and KKR and Neil Brown and
  • And then what ended up emerging out of that was just pay to play what I call Petraeus pay to play triple three or P Q
  • Petraeus pay to play came out of that
  • And really we this DynCorp emerged this company called DynCorp which is kind of behind it's kind of a CIA cutout kind of emerges
  • Now everybody could say oh yeah Beacon Global came out of that that's really Morell and all those guys
  • Well yeah ok but for the most part DynCorp
  • So you're gonna be able to drill into this and we're gonna be able to put in episodes
  • So we're gonna do a card per episode or or send in your favorite episode where you started
  • And I want it I want you to send just the picture of the thumbnail from that episode
  • So this episode all starts with Thomas Paine this first episode where he bre the story that Huma that boys or one of the Chiefs in the New York Public New York Police Department leaked the information that there was 500,000 pay-to-play emails
  • So this starts the whole series off right here pay to play which became Petraeus pay to play which then became DynCorp
  • So the second bucket here is gonna be really what turned into kind of like this DynCorp spy rings
  • Really kind of in the days 51 - excuse me days 95 through 124 really kind of became the DynCorp spy rings
  • And the DynCorp arms rings
  • Kind of starting in Haiti and then looking at what the diner on all over the world in Kosovo and Afghanistan in Iraq and different places
  • This was really our time for developing a modus operandi, kind of where the decisions were made at the CFR how they got passed down to Washington DC from here in New York, how that kind of translated into foreign policy, how that kind of translated into creating these clockwork oranges around the world
  • So then the third piece or the third bucket really was this DynCorp infiltrates local law enforcement or the US
  • So we just really started looking at how DynCorp through Presidential Decision Directive 62 and other measures Patriot Act different things started infiltrating into the into the FBI
  • So that was really kind of episodes 125 to 150 we talked about the Boston bombing
  • We talked about the tsarnaev's that's really where the story is gonna be picking up with Jaso now and Trish in this bucket
  • Then we had now this board is going to be basically I'm gonna call it Hillary's Hamlet Hillary's Hamlet Hamlet is is going to be Braverman
  • We still don't know if he's a bad guy or good guy he's doing a lot of USAID and and and world bank loans and and helping with this Haiti these Haiti loans and helping in Africa and helping
  • But it's also a lot of things go south we're only four or five percent of the money actually gets through
  • We don't know if he's a good guy bad guy
  • So this still isn't resolved yet it's
  • It's Hillary's Hamlet which led to Haiti and led to henchman
  • The henchman being Petraeus behind the power behind the throne here kind of as Hillary's Walsingham, designing all these rings
  • And really the company that emerges out of that is DynCorp
  • So then the next phase really is is really looking at the pattern and practices of DynCorp around the world
  • So we're gonna just
  • So I'm gonna have people send the just a shot of the screenshot and say Dave whatever
  • And then whatever the title is and then send the screenshot
  • And that way we'll be able to nope sorry that way we'll be able to put all the cards in a row here and then we can organize the research by cards
  • And I'll show you how we can do some global searching from them
  • And then finally this last one is DynCorp and and then the infiltration of the FBI through JTTF
  • These are the ten different Department of DoD infiltrating the JTFF
  • This is kind of all the bad things and bad habits we learned overseas
  • Now coming into the United States through JTTF
  • This is kind of the JTTF funnel we're gonna have all the things
  • The child trafficking the pay-to-play the organ harvesting all that kind of comes in
  • And then over here on these other boards these are kind of the support boards
  • So sorry if I'm identifying these are all public comments
  • So I'm not deliberately identifying anyone there
  • But you'll see these support boards and the support boards are for people who want to take a particular focus on something
  • So just to give you an idea some folks really wanted to get more developed at the research in organ harvesting
  • Other ones wanted to lo more at the Council on Foreign Relations
  • So that people wanted to focus on Feinberg as the head of that organization or kind of Trump's connection there
  • And then I'll show you other folks we're more interested in Monica Peterson with the Haiti situation
  • Other people in Syria the white helmets the use of chemical weapons
  • Of course Latin America with the sex trafficking DynCorp in Iraq with the DU trade their illegal uranium trade Africa
  • With more of the same Libya sex trade etc
