O's piecing together stellar season after key injuries
The Orioles have been here before. Here, as in missing key members in a magnificent season with Baltimore (79-57) posting numbers that look, on paper at least, as if this is the year where everything went right.

Miscues mount as O's denied series sweep of Twins
Poor defense saddled Kevin Gausman with a hard-luck loss despite seven strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings. The O's missed a chance to sweep the last-place Twins with a 6-4 loss in front of 33,156 on Monday.

Hardy day to day after leaving with lower back spasms
Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy exited Monday's 6-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins prior to the eighth inning with lower back spasms and is considered day to day.

O's lose replay challenge in the fifth vs. Twins
The Orioles challenged when Jimmy Paredes tried to dive into the first-base bag on a grounder to Minnesota first baseman Kennys Vargas and was called out when starting pitcher Phil Hughes beat him there on the flip on Monday.

O's bring up Saunders, Meek as rosters expand
The Orioles added a pair of pitchers with September's expanded rosters, selecting Joe Saunders' contract and recalling Evan Meek from Triple-A Norfolk prior to Monday's game.

Our Obama Media Pushes For Socialized Health Care
Filed under: — Robert Farrow @ 10:40 pm

Crossposted from Flopping Aces

If anyone wants to argue that this President does not have the backing of our MSM they need to look no further then this most unbelievably biased decision by ABC to become the White House advertising company.

On the night of June 24, the media and government become one, when ABC turns its programming over to President Obama and White House officials to push government run health care — a move that has ignited an ethical firestorm!

Highlights on the agenda:

ABCNEWS anchor Charlie Gibson will deliver WORLD NEWS from the Blue Room of the White House.

The network plans a primetime special — ‘Prescription for America’ — originating from the East Room, exclude opposing voices on the debate.

They no longer care about at least pretending to be unbiased, now they are giving Obama and friends the reins to a major media outlet to help achieve a policy position.

This is nothing short of amazing, and on a policy that will cost this country 1.3 trillion dollars AND turn our health care system into a socialist nightmare.

ABC News responds:

To that end, ABC News announced plans to broadcast a primetime hour from the White House devoted to exploring and probing the President’s position and giving voice to questions and criticisms of that position. We hope that any American concerned about health care will find our efforts to be informative, fair and civil.

Second, ABC News prides itself on covering all sides of important issues and asking direct questions of all newsmakers — of all political persuasions — even when others have taken a more partisan approach and even in the face of criticism from extremes on both ends of the political spectrum. ABC News is looking for the most thoughtful and diverse voices on this issue. ABC News alone will select those who will be in the audience asking questions of the president. Like any programs we broadcast, ABC News will have complete editorial control. To suggest otherwise is quite unfair to both our journalists and our audience.

Third, there already has been extensive coverage of the upcoming health care debates, on ABC and elsewhere, and there will be much, much more. Indeed, we’ve already had many critics of the President’s health care proposals on the air – and that’s before a real plan has even been put before the country.

In the end, no one watching, listening to, or reading ABC News will lack for an understanding of all sides of these important questions.

Ok, then why do it from the White House? Why get access to the President and all his cohorts while disregarding the other side of the aisle? And that’s not even accounting for GMA, Nightline, and The World News:

As the national debate on health care reform intensifies, I am deeply concerned and disappointed with ABC’s astonishing decision to exclude opposing voices on this critical issue on June 24, 2009. Next Wednesday, ABC News will air a primetime health care reform “town hall” at the White House with President Barack Obama. In addition, according to an ABC News report, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, WORLD NEWS, NIGHTLINE and ABC’s web news “will all feature special programming on the president’s health care agenda.” This does not include the promotion, over the next 9 days, the president’s health care agenda will receive on ABC News programming.

Today, the Republican National Committee requested an opportunity to add our Party’s views to those of the President’s to ensure that all sides of the health care reform debate are presented. Our request was rejected. I believe that the President should have the ability to speak directly to the America people. However, I find it outrageous that ABC would prohibit our Party’s opposing thoughts and ideas from this national debate, which affects millions of ABC viewers.

In the absence of opposition, I am concerned this event will become a glorified infomercial to promote the Democrat agenda. If that is the case, this primetime infomercial should be paid for out of the DNC coffers. President Obama does not hold a monopoly on health care reform ideas or on free airtime. The President has stated time and time again that he wants a bipartisan debate. Therefore, the Republican Party should be included in this primetime event, or the DNC should pay for your airtime.

I gotta agree with Malkin here:

ABC News should be required to register as a federal lobbyist.

But why should this astonish us anymore. No President in history has had the major media behind it as much as this one…..the consequences be damned.

Dems Claiming Pres. Obama Broke A Law He Co-Sponsored Himself

After being briefed today on President Obama’s firing last week of Gerald Walpin, Inspector General of the Corporation for National and Community Service, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said the president did not abide by the same law that he co-sponsored – and she wrote – about firing Inspectors General.

“The White House has failed to follow the proper procedure in notifying Congress as to the removal of the Inspector General for the Corporation for National and Community Service,” McCaskill said. “The legislation which was passed last year requires that the president give a reason for the removal.”

McCaskill, a key Obama ally, said that the president’s stated reason for the termination, “Loss of confidence’ is not a sufficient reason.”

McCaskill is not just “a key Obama ally.”
She’s a pure, fullbred GROUPIE. This lady is so in the bag for President Obama that even Chris Matthews might be jealous. For her to admit he screwed up-let alone that he broke a law-this is devastating. A Republican Congress might have him impeached for such crimes, and a truly unbiased media would be carrying this story ad nauseum instead of just a token story from Jake “Huevos Grande” Tapper at ABC.

Bengals get through camp without setbacks (The Associated Press)
The rest of the Cincinnati Bengals were starting practice on the rain-softened grass fields Monday afternoon. Receiver Marvin Jones was headed in the opposite direction, walking down the paved path toward the trainer's room, slowed by a protective white boot on his left foot. The defending AFC North champions didn't make it through training camp unscathed. Jones is one of the few regulars missing as Cincinnati gets ready for its opener on Sunday in Baltimore.

Colts face daunting challenge to protect Luck (The Associated Press)
Andrew Luck and A.Q. Shipley started getting reacquainted at Monday's practice. While this isn't how the Colts envisioned opening the season Sunday at Denver, plugging in yet another potential new starter at center, injuries have left them with no choice. ''Going through today, taking every snap with the first group out there, he was pretty much flawless,'' coach Chuck Pagano said. ''It's not easy, but we can help him on our end.'' The Colts need all the help they can get.

NFL Preview Week: Which teams have the toughest first four games? (Shutdown Corner)
The NFL regular season officially kicks off on Thursday when Green Bay travels to Seattle to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks. Shutdown Corner will be previewing everything to come all week, capped off by our awards and Super Bowl predictions on Thursday. You can’t earn or lose a playoff spot in the first month, but you don’t want to dig a deep hole you’ll spend the last three months of the season trying to get out of. Ask the Steelers and Giants. Both teams were popular playoff picks last year, but Pittsburgh started 0-4 and the Giants started 0-6. It didn’t matter that Pittsburgh won six of its last eight or New York won seven of its last 10. Neither one made the playoffs because of the slow starts. Remember, all 16 games count the same, so the ones starting this week have the same weight in the standings as the ones in the final weeks. These teams have the toughest (and easiest) first four game stretches to start the season:

NFL Preview Week: 12 second-year players ready to break out (Shutdown Corner)
Coaches often say that the biggest growth in an NFL player occurs between the first and second season. Rookie confusion can lead to second-year clarity and a sense of being unencumbered. In this rush-to-judgment league, it's easy to forget last year's draft class. But here are some of the second-year players who might be ready to remind everyone just how good they still are: Cleveland Browns pass rusher Barkevious Mingo — When you listen to him talk this preseason, the words "comfortable" and "confident" are used a lot. That's because Mingo, who was always seen as a work in progress entering the league, now has his body and mind properly shaped to be an impact player. The Browns will have a strong top three edge rushers with Paul Kruger, Jabaal Sheard and Mingo and can rotate them and keep them fresh. Mingo likely will be an open-side rusher (the offense's left side) and will be his best to use quickness and length to distract and disrupt quarterbacks. He had three of his five sacks in his first three NFL games but wore down. Now, in Year 2, Mingo should have the stamina to put up double digits in that category.

49er Ray McDonald accused of domestic violence (The Associated Press)
San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Ray McDonald was arrested early Sunday on felony domestic violence charges after officers responded to a home in an upscale neighborhood, San Jose police said. Sgt. Heather Randol, a police spokeswoman, declined to discuss the circumstances that led to McDonald's arrest, saying only that officers had probable cause to take him into custody. ''I'm a good-hearted person.'' NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced tougher penalties this past week for players accused of domestic violence. ''The 49ers organization is aware of the recent reports regarding Ray McDonald and we take such matters seriously,'' general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement.

National Football League roundup (Reuters)
(The Sports Xchange) - San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Ray McDonald was arrested and charged with felony domestic violence early Sunday morning. The Sacramento Bee reported that McDonald was booked by San Jose police at 5:30 a.m. Sunday for "inflicting injury on a spouse or cohabitant". He is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 15, the day after the 49ers play a Sunday Night Football game against the Chicago Bears in Santa Clara. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced last week that the new punishment for those involved in domestic violence disputes would be six weeks for first-time offenders and a second offense would carry a lifetime ban.

Dolphins add 2 players, tweaking 53-man roster (The Associated Press)
Going with undrafted players is clearly not too risky for the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins have added two more players who never got drafted, making moves Sunday to sign safety Brandian Ross and cornerback Sammy Seamster off waivers. He spent 2011 on Green Bay's practice squad as an undrafted free agent from Youngstown State. Seamster, an undrafted rookie out of Middle Tennessee State, was waived Saturday by Baltimore.

49ers' McDonald arrested for domestic violence (AFP)
San José (United States) (AFP) - National Football League veteran Ray McDonald was arrested early Sunday morning on charges of domestic violence. Law enforcement officials said the San Francisco 49er defensive end was booked in Santa Clara County jail for "inflicting injury on a spouse or cohabitant." McDonald was questioned and released after posting bail. The Sacramento Bee newspaper reported that McDonald was involved in an altercation with his pregnant fiancee while having a birthday party at his home.
