Obsess Over Racism… Pay No Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain!

445a3a78-ff01-45cf-a5bd-1f8931cd88e4_zpse681e3ddAnyone out there still think the Donald Sterling story is all about racism?  For those who still have yet to grasp the magnitude of the manipulations going on in the world of the BGI, let me present the following list of power players who today have come out stating their intention to bid for ownership of the Clippers:

  • Magic Johnson & Guggenheim Partners

  • Floyd Mayweather

  • Rick Ross

  • P. Diddy

  • Oprah, David Geffen and Larry Ellison

Now that the racism card has been successfully played against Sterling,  the truly clever and ambitious players can sally forth to grab the spoils of a BGI game well-played. I recommend contacting becraft immigration law which is an agency that helps people from other nations. They’ve even put out a new bright and shiny video…

H/T BigMamaTea…

Obsess over racism; pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!

[…] I’ll offer a theory about why the man might be Magic Johnson, who desperately wants Donald Sterling’s NBA franchise now that the Buss family says they won’t sell his old Lakers. But Magic was the front man in the purchase of the Los Angeles Dodgers two years ago. So it might be Magic’s big money backers in Guggenheim Partners.

Or … And this is really a stretch, but let me toss it out there. There’s a financier in L.A. who invests some of his money with Guggenheim Partners who for intelligence and energy and guile makes Mozilo and the other mortgage guys look like smalltimers. You haven’t heard much about him since he got out of prison a couple of decades ago. He’s legally banned for life from getting anything in return for giving investment advice. But he’s still here and he’s allowed to manage his own billions. The SEC has been investigating whether the Dodger purchase by Guggenheim was something of a front for him to get back in the game.

Granted, I’m no doubt reading way too much into this. And if this story doesn’t go all the way to the top, it’s still really interesting. I apologize for this post wandering all over the place, but the more I looked into the story that Magic wants the Clippers, the more pieces fell into place.

Listening closely to the presumably illegally made tapes suggests that the mistress was setting the LA Clippers owner up — she’s the one egging on the racial angle over her photos cuddling with Magic Johnson and Matt Kemp of the Dodgers. Originally, I assumed her minor league lawyer was her mastermind, but the news that Magic and his mysterious Guggenheim Partners backers want control of Sterling’s NBA franchise suggests that there’s a reasonable chance that this whole set-up originated with somebody more high-powered than her Woodland Hills attorney. (This lawyer is so obscure that his office is on Burbank Blvd. rather than on Ventura Blvd.)

Former Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Magic Johnson was the public frontman for the secretive Guggenheim Partners in paying an outlandish $2 billion to Boston leveraged parking lot robber baron Frank McCourt for the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team. And now, what do you know, Magic and the Guggenheim Partners are willing to take the Los Angeles Clippers off Donald Sterling’s hands and add it to their nascent Los Angeles sports empire.

In contrast, the new Guggenheim Partners firm is very high-powered. In fact, the SEC has been trying for a year to figure out if GP is so high-powered that its Los Angeles sports franchise acquisitions are done in illegal collaboration with … well, I won’t mention his name yet, but it’s a smack-yourself-in-the-forehead name out of the history books of Los Angeles and finance. I’ll tell you the name later in the posting, but for my readers who are at his annual Beverly Hills wingding today, why don’t you ask around and see what your host thinks about the Clippers. Or ask Magic Johnson when he speaks at lunchtime on Wednesday.  (Read more…)

    From day one I’ve said that this whole “scandal” was a shakedown to wrest ownership of the Clippers’ franchise from Donald Sterling,and that Stiviano was a co-conspirator who was used by Magic Johnson for this very purpose.

          I certainly get your point jello333, but what’s wrong with being a racist? We’re not talking about someone who thinks owning another person is OK. And we’re not talking about someone who does or would do harm to another person based solely on their race. I think most would agree those things are just plane wrong.

          But the last time I checked this is still a free country, and freedom of thought, speech and expression is still protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. So what if someone doesn’t like another person or group of people, and who cares why they feel that way? If we’re being honest, we would all have to admit that there’s someone or some group we just don’t like, for whatever reason. What’s the difference?

          Funny then, how everything suddenly changes when there’s BIG money to be had…

            Yep (in case it wasn’t clear from my other comment… I agree with you). When we reach the level of thought control, then we’re in serious trouble (of course we’re already there). The only racism we should really be concerned about is that which actually harms others.

            Eg — laws that denied a certain race the rights everyone else enjoyed. (see Dred Scott, Jim Crow, etc.)

            Eg — laws that give a certain race distinct advantages, thereby DEcreasing the rights of others. (see “Affirmative Action”/quotas and “disparate impact” school discipline garbage)

            Eg — the Klan who terrorized (and sometimes murdered) people because of their race, and the people who supported and cheered them on.

            Eg — the New Black Panther Party who (whenever given the opportunity) terrorize (and have PLANS to murder) people because of their race, and the people who (privately if not publicly) support and cheer them on.

Why does the BGI scream bloody murder over some stupid comments made by a horny old man and yet completely ignore the horrific rhetoric of the New Black Panthers? I think it’s because they are truly the worst kinds of racists and because of their greedy lust for money and power. If they were judged, “not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character” they would be in prison!

    Clear case of Senior abuse, Stiviano ingratiated herself to secretly record Sterling’s private comments to her to humiliate him. Humiliation = emotional abuse. Looks like a slam dunk to me.

    Second elder abuse shoe to drop is if her recordings were intended to force Sterling into a distress sale of Clippers – which is financial abuse. If she didn’t do this 100% on her own then you’re talking criminal conspiracy. Just start deposing her and see how the cookie crumbles. Offer her a free pass on the emotional abuse issue if she gives up the financial schemers. I simply cannot imagine she would do all this illegal secret recording on her own. She gets 20 minutes of fame in exchange for killing her golden goose, doesn’t make sense. stting up Sterling at someone’s behest does make sense. depose, depose, depose…

      I don’t think there is ANY legal way for the league to force the sale either. It totally would fall under “antitrust action”…. and Sterling would be easily, as in 100% easily, be able to win a court challenge against the league for antitrust infraction(s).

      Then again, that’s probably why they need to go the emotional court of public opinion route….. there simply is no legal basis to force the sale.

    ….”As a practical effect, the suspension all but excommunicates Sterling from both his team and the NBA. He is forbidden from any contact with players, coaches and staff, and he is barred from attending games or practices. Sterling is also prohibited from participating in league activities. He is now, essentially, in NBA exile.

    The fine of $2.5 million may seem inconsequential given that Sterling is worth reportedly $1.9 billion, but it was the highest amount of money permitted by the league’s constitution and bylaws. Had Silver issued a higher fine, and justified it on policy or moral grounds, he would have provided Sterling with an opportunity to raise a legal point. Specifically, Sterling might have argued such a penalty is “arbitrary and capricious” because it would not have followed NBA rules. Silver, an attorney, wisely adhered to the rules instead”….

    I saw another theory bit about other owners being concerned about skeletons in their own closets regarding racism. You know what causes racism? Understanding who you are dealing with. We, in the past 40+ years have had it drilled into us from birth about how evil and bad racism is. And as far back as I can remember, I believed “I’m no racist!” but I couldn’t prove it because I didn’t actually know many people who were black. First experiences were in the military, not great, but anyone that meant anything generally earned their rank and respect. No affirmative action in the military that I was aware of — at least not E6 and below. Then things changed when I got a government job and I met lots of black people who were more interested in the government benefits than anything else. One I personally thwarted had a retirement plan which consisted of insurance fraud. He was stupid enough to talk about it.

    And things just got worse from there on out. And you may also notice that most of the “anti-racists” don’t actually spend a lot of time with black people which explains why so many of these anti-racists end up dead, raped, robbed and beaten. “I’m not racist! They won’t harm me! They think I am one of them! I’m a grizzly bear!!!” (Sorry, I always make the comparison to Grizzly man. If you don’t know the story, google it.)

    So yes, other owners definitely have racism in their hearts as well… well, I wouldn’t call it racism, but the BGI and the anti-racist public out there would. But when you are dealing with any given demographic of people, young, old, male, female, black, white, whatever — it only serves to understand who you are dealing with. And when you do, you know best how to negotiate without losing. But having a working understanding of black people makes you “racist” simply because you have to acknowledge some pretty ugly truths.

      And those truths can be ugly like you would not believe.
      I worked for the State of Florida for a while. In the agency office were two black female attorneys, a supervisor and her supervisee. Both bright enough. But the supervisee would skip entire days from the office. I mean like 2 or 3 days a week. The supervisor would continually lie and cover for her.

      Eventually this was found out. Evidence as cold cut as anything I have ever seen. Now had it been a white person, termination would have been relatively quick (at least if a white male). Instead it took 6 months of undercover documentation to get the paperwork ready.

      So what happens is that both are eventually allowed to resign. Dare not fire them because of a possible lawsuit.

      The supervisee now has a nice job with an African American college. The supervisor – get this – is now working with the Federal Govt. at $120,000 a year as a lawyer.

      This is truth. This is real. This is vile.

In effect what Viviano and then Silver did, recording and broadcasting an illegal recording to hurt Sterling on purpose in collusion with Magic Johnson or others, followed by Silver’s impulsive ban, is to damage the NBA franchise and Clipper brand, aka profits. Viviano, her co-horts and Silver ought to be very scared right now. This was entirely a personal affair and a frame.

    Sterling again insists Clippers not for sale, despite NBA ruling

    …..Owners plan to vote on the matter next week, and an affirmative vote by 22 of the league’s 29 owners could force Sterling to divest.

    But experts say the case could be tied up in court for years if Sterling fights back. Richard Sheehan, the author of “Keeping Score: The Economics of Big-Time Sports,” told The Los Angeles Times that the 80-year-old Sterling, a lawyer and real estate tycoon, could tie up the sale of the team for the rest of his life.

    “It would be an absolute disaster,” Sheehan said. The article pointed out that Sterling could also make up to $1 billion on the sale of the team because the NBA is about to renegotiate its national television contract.

    Sterling, who has owned the franchise for 33 years, has not spoken publicly since TMZ posted the audio recording of him telling his alleged girlfriend not to bring black people to his games.

    Looking forward to the vote and the battle ahead. Sterling’s a lawyer, this will be a cinch, even if not favorable for his reputation, but it’s not like he really gives an _ff about it. Caring about your image would mean you don’t hang around obvious skanky gold diggers.

      The most interesting question is does the ban extend to owners meetings? Is it even possible to keep him out? Does he get to vote on being forced to sell the team.

      BTW Mark Cuban has hinted that he will not vote to force Sterling to sell. I wonder how many more there will be.

      As for the ban. I don’t see how they can stop him being in the front office, but I can see how they can stop him attending practices or games. It will be interesting to see whether he contests it.
