      Good afternoon Redskins fans!  I have once again been invited to sit in the relative comfort of the press box and shout my thoughts into the void via this blog.  As you watch the game today and see the rain  pour relentlessly from the heavens, know that I am safe and dry.  Know also that @Spaceman Spiff is out there somewhere, cold and unappreciated, rolling around in the muck trying to capture that perfect picture.  Maybe say a little prayer for his health (or laugh, whatever, I’m not judging you).  Also, be sure not to miss the pictures he posts on this site after each game.     
       
      Before we get into today's Redskins game, I want give some thanks for more positive occurrences in DC sports.  Congrats to the Washington Mystics for winning their first championship.  Congrats go out to the Washington Nationals as well for reaching the world series.  These two teams (along with the Caps) are working hard to change the sports related mood around this town, and we're all happier for it. 
       
      Lets move now into less cheerful topics, namely your Washington Redskins!  Yow know things are going bad, and I mean really dang bad, when your team has gone through three quarterbacks and two coaches and your not even half way through the season.  Today's fresh hell comes in the form of a specter of the our recent past coming to smirk at our misfortune.  Im talking of course of Kyle.  Kyle's spent the week assuring everyone that he isn’t holding a grudge, while very obviously holding a grudge.  “Everything else.”  You know what I’m talking about. 
       
      If all he brought to town were his hurt feelings we wouldn’t have a problem.  Sadly, he’s arrived with an undefeated football team that the NFL says we have to play this week.  This feels entirely unfair. 
       
      My generic key to the game:  Run the ball and stop the run.  The team (spoiler alert: 49ers) that does this today will win.   
       
      Redskins Inactives  
      QB Colt McCoy  
      S Deshazor Everett  
      CB Josh Norman  
      RB Chris THompson  
      LB Josh Harvey-Clemons 
      G Wes Martin  
      TE Vernon Davis  
       
      49ers inactives  
      QB CJ Beathard 
      WR Deebo Samuel  
      CB Ahkello Witherspoon  
      FB Kyle Juszczyk 
      T Mike McGLinchey 
      T Joe Staley 
      DL DJ Jones 
       
      1st Quarter Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers
       
      Callahan wasn’t playing around when he said he wanted to run the ball.  That first drive was all runs, and looked great... right up until they tried to pass the ball.  Hopkins missed the relatively short fied goal, because of course he did.     

      Maybe Quinn isn’t a good choice to be returning punts?  Consider it.    
       
      That second Redskins drive looked more like what we’ve come to expect from this offense.  Run for negative yards, pass dropped, and an unsuccessful screen pass.  A quintessential Redskins three and out. 

      Passing yards this quarter:  Redskins 3. 49ers 9.  Are you not entertained?! 
       
      Half Time Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers 
       
      How happy are you to spend your Sunday afternoon watching this game?  Consider that some people paid money, to sit in a poncho, in the rain, to watch this game. 
       
      It’s now time for those half time adjustments that our beloved skins do so well.  It’s unlikely the second half mirrors the first. 
       
      3rd Quarter Update 
      Redskins 0 – 3 49ers  
       
      Good news, this game will not end in a 0-0 tie.  Those half time adjustments have kicked in as expected and the 49ers have found a way onto the scoreboard in this messy throwback game.  The Redskins have decided to spend the second half collecting holding penalties and sadness.  Mercifully, only one quarter remains. 
       
      End of Game Update 
      Redskins 0 – 9 49ers 
       
      Callahan hasn’t spent much time as the head coach of the Washington Redskins, but he’s already proven that his team can waste 2nd half timeouts like a veteran.  It makes little sense to adopt a strategy that shortens the game when your team is losing, and it makes even less sense when your team is short on time outs.  I’m not really sure what the thinking as late in this game.    
       
      Next week Kirk Cousins!

I was wondering what narrative you were going to ride once these rulings started coming in.   "Obama appointed judges" straight out of Trump's mouth and into a twa post.

It will depend on the justification for the ruling because right off the bat if the ruling goes in Trump's favor it will be breaking current understood law/precedent. IMO, anytime you rule against existing law the burden lies on you to give a good explanation/justification for doing so. 

 

What the courts are doing right now in these rulings are merely upholding the law, where as Trump is just deciding he doesn't have to follow the law.  There is literally zero argument Trump's teams are bringing to these lawsuits other than "Because I don't want to"

Dude, the SCOTUS has said before that they have no ruling over something like this. This is completely in the house committees.

And they have changed their mind at times....such as Nelson.

Do you really think the SCOTUS is prepared to blow up the constitution and change precedent for Trump? You realize he won't be the president forever and a Dem or someone else will be in there eventually, right?

Judges at all levels rule against precedent, how about we wait and see how far it goes?

 

I'm still waiting for them to impeach him

Again, impeachment has nothing to do with the SCOTUS, I'm hoping you're just trolling at this point.

Out of curiosity, what would be your justification for Trump ignoring requests for documents?  Do you think because he is President anything/everything he wants to claim as executive privilege, he can? Other then that I am not sure what would be argued in his favor in this case.  Especially since the majority of the documents being requested are in relation to a an FBI investigation in which Mueller pretty much told congress to figure out.

Varies by which documents.

Tax returns and such pre presidency are of rather limited legislative use unless expanded to similarly grouped persons.

 

The Mueller report redacted parts are protected by law and the call to release them w/o due process is nothing but political theater.

 

Do you want to go into the testimony demands?

Ok let's handle this one first.  Is "limited legislative use" currently the litmus test for whether documents must be turned over?  If so, who gets to make the determination as to what the legislative usage of said documents could produce.    Can you give examples of documents being refused for this same reasoning in the past and it holding up in court?

 

Or.....are you advocating that the court should make this the law when it trickles up to the Supreme Court (assuming it gets there).  

 

Seems to me that anyone could make the claim of "limited legislative use" for anything ever if the document holders are the ones allowed to make that determination.   

 

Btw, there was the article about the IRS official that disagrees with this reasoning and did say they should be turning them over. 

 

My issue with this justification and how this is being handled by Trump's team in general is that they seem to just be making up things as they go as to whether they will or won't comply.  Has nothing to do with what the actual law/procedure suggest should be done.  If they don't want to turn something over, they just come up with a nonsense reply on the spot, full aware it is nonsense, but are hoping to just get the luck of the draw in court.

As far as I know, I haven't insulted you or called you any names. However, you going to claim I'm on drugs and try to gaslight me for saying facts? No! No, no, no! From now on, when you say something stupid (which is on a daily basis) I'm going to treat you as such. That is the most respect I can muster for you and that is the best you deserve, sorry it has come to this. I'm still hoping that you're just a simple troll.
