After Losing his Battle with Trump, LaVar Ball Makes Announcement about His Son Future Career at UCLA

No deed ever went unpunished, and LaVar Ball is the perfect example for that. Namely, after picking a fight with President Trump, LaVar Ball noted he will withdraw his son, LiAngelo Ball, from UCLA.

The reason for this is the indefinite suspension on the freshman.

LiAngelo found himself in a whole lot of problems after being arrested in China for theft. Ever since, UCLA took measures and sanctioned the player, despite the fact that the Chinese government released him and two others from the UCLA.

The reason these players were released in the first place was due to President Trump’s appeal to China. LaVar Ball, however, doesn’t seem to be thankful for this move and said his son will focus on getting drafted by the NBA.

“We are exploring other options with Gelo,” Ball said. “He’s out of there.”

Ball’s oldest son, Lonzo, is playing his first season for the Lakers, after showing off his talent in the UCLA. On the other hand, that was not at all the case with LiAngelo.

Ball assured everyone that his son won’t attend another college. “He’s not transferring to another school. The plan is now to get Gelo ready for the NBA draft.”

The bitter father also went after UCLA administrators, stating they treated his son worse than the Chinese legal authorities.

“I’m not sitting back and waiting. He wasn’t punished this bad in China. We get back over here, and the consequences were even stiffer than China. So basically they’re in jail here.”

Ball wasn’t in touch with the university regarding his decision. “I haven’t told any of those guys,” Ball said. “They didn’t tell me anything, so why am I gonna tell them?”

In addition, he noted the school’s basketball staff was purposely leaving his son out of games.

“They had him there just to use the Ball family name. They were going to keep the best shooter on the team coming off the bench? That’s like telling the Clippers back in the day not to play JJ Redick.”

Ball is certain, though, that LiAngelo will make a great fit for the NBA. “I’m going to make him way better for the draft than UCLA ever could have.”

Still, many have doubts about this turn of events. “He’s not on any of our scouting lists — even the extended lists,” a general manager told ESPN.

President Trump and LaVar Ball have been bickering non-stop ever since Trump pulled his son out of jail, a fact Ball doesn’t want to admit to this day.

Many took LaVar Ball’s call as a sign of weakness and uncertainty.

Last week, reports indicated Stefan Halper, a Cambridge professor and longtime aide to some of Washington’s most powerful figures, was outed as an FBI informant planted inside Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. The New York Post writes: Halper made his first overture when he met with Page at a British symposium. The two remained in regular contact for more than a year, meeting at Halper’s Virginia farm and in Washington, DC, as well as exchanging emails. The professor met with Trump campaign co-chair Sam Clovis in late August, offering his services as a foreign-policy adviser, The Washington Post reported Friday, without naming the academic. … Days later, Halper contacted Papadopoulos by e-mail. The professor offered the young and inexperienced campaign aide $3,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to London, ostensibly to write a paper about energy in the eastern Mediterranean region. Here are a few fast facts about Halper’s history in politics. Got His Start in Nixon/Ford Years The Stanford and Oxford-educated Halper started his career in government in 1971 as a member of President Richard Nixon’s Domestic Policy Council. The foreign policy expert served as the Office of Management and Budget’s Assistant Director of Management and Evaluation Division between 1973-1974. Halper then served as an assistant to all three of President Gerald Ford’s Chief of Staffs — Alexander Haig, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney — until 1977. Accused of Leading a Spy Ring Inside Jimmy Carter’s Presidential Campaign The Reagan-Bush presidential campaign hired Halper to serve as Director of Policy Coordination in 1980 and would later be embroiled in the Debategate affair, a scandal in which CIA operatives were accused of leaking the Carter campaign’s foreign policy positions to the Republican ticket. The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald reports: Four decades ago, Halper was responsible for a long-forgotten spying scandal involving the 1980 election, in which the Reagan campaign – using CIA officials managed by Halper, reportedly under the direction of former CIA Director and then-Vice-Presidential candidate George H.W. Bush – got caught running a spying operation from inside the Carter administration. The plot involved CIA operatives passing classified information about Carter’s foreign policy to Reagan campaign officials in order to ensure the Reagan campaign knew of any foreign policy decisions that Carter was considering. Halper also worked as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs during President Ronald Reagan’s first term. Had a Stint as a Bank Executive In 1984, Halper was chairman of three financial institutions — National Bank of Northern Virginia, Palmer National Bank, and George Washington National Bank. White House official Oliver North wired loaned funds from the Palmer National Bank to a Swiss bank account, which were later used to aid the contras. Believed Hillary Clinton Would Be a Better Steward for U.S.-UK Relations In March 2016, Halper told Russia’s Sputnik News that he believed then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton would prove to be a steadier hand in preserving the “special relationship” enjoyed by the United States and Britain. “I believe Clinton would be best for US-UK relations and for relations with the European Union. Clinton is well-known, deeply experienced and predictable. US-UK relations will remain steady regardless of the winner although Clinton will be less disruptive over time,” Halper said.
