Position-by-position breakdown for Tigers-O's
Two of baseball's top offenses will collide when the Orioles take on the Tigers in the American League Division Series. It all starts at Camden Yards with Game 1 scheduled for Thursday on TBS.

Constructing a winner: Orioles
Here's a look at how the Baltimore Orioles used the Draft, trades, free agency and international signings to build its postseason team.

O's starting preparations for showdown with Tigers

Markakis ready for a taste of postseason action
Nick Markakis has waited years to play in his first postseason. The right fielder -- a homegrown product of the Orioles' system, who made his Major League debut in 2006 -- was supposed to get that opportunity in 2012, when Baltimore ended a 14-year playoff drought with a 93-win season. But Markakis required surgery for a fractured left thumb weeks before the '12 postseason began, and had to watch from the sidelines.

No Country For White Men
Filed under: — Robert Farrow @ 12:56 am

from Flopping Aces

I despise racism from any sources. Including from this administration. I am getting really tired of the one sided nature of the justice being meted out by Barack Obama.

Fresh off the filing of a lawsuit against the state of Arizona Attorney General Eric Holder announced the possibility of suing Arizona again, this time for the contrived offense of “racial profiling.”

Attorney General Eric Holder, just days after filing a federal lawsuit against Arizona’s immigration law, on Sunday floated the possibility of filing another suit on racial profiling grounds.

No crime has been committed, but Holder is set to sue.

However, Holder said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that the federal government was leading with its “strongest” argument in the suit filed Tuesday and would not rule out a second suit months down the road — if the law ends up going into effect.

The purpose of the first lawsuit is without merit:

The lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Arizona claimed the state was infringing on federal immigration responsibilities and urged the judge to prevent the law from going into effect at the end of July. Despite some officials’ claims that the law could lead to racial profiling, that concern was not cited as grounds for the suit.

It’s idiotic to sue a state for infringing on federal responsibilities when the federal government is derelict in its responsibilities in securing the borders. It’s galactically stupid to join a foreign country in suing your own people on behalf of people who are here illegally.

Ironically, Rhode Island already allows what the new Arizona law plans.

But in Rhode Island, illegal immigrants face a far greater penalty: deportation.

From Woonsocket to Westerly, the troopers patrolling the nation’s smallest state are reporting all illegal immigrants they encounter, even on routine stops such as speeding, to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE.

And so does Prince William County, Virginia:

WOODBRIDGE, Va. (WUSA) — Prince William County already has the strictest immigration law in the region, and now Board of Supervisor Chairman Corey Stewart wants a stronger crackdown.

He’s proposing to bring the controversial Arizona immigration law to the entire Commonwealth of Virginia.

As Curt noted, the Obama administration is hard at work puffing up this issue but terminated a blatantly clear voter rights intimidation case.

In the first week of January, the Justice Department filed a civil lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party and three of its members, saying they violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act by scaring voters with the weapon, uniforms and racial slurs. In March, Mr. Bull submitted an affidavit at Justice’s request to support its lawsuit.

When none of the defendants filed any response to the complaint or appeared in federal district court in Philadelphia to answer the suit, it appeared almost certain Justice would have prevailed by default. Instead, the department in May suddenly allowed the party and two of the three defendants to walk away. Against the third defendant, Minister King Samir Shabazz, it sought only an injunction barring him from displaying a weapon within 100 feet of a Philadelphia polling place for the next three years—action that’s already illegal under existing law.

Some objected immediately:

Then the Washington Times reported on July 30 that six career lawyers at Justice who had recommended continuing to pursue the case were overruled by Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli—a top administration political appointee. One of the career attorneys, Appellate Chief Diana Flynn, had urged in an internal memo that a judgment be pressed against the defendants to “prevent the paramilitary style intimidation of voters” in the future.

Former Justice Attorney J Christian Adams disclosed how the case was dropped:

“I mean we were told, ‘Drop the charges against the New Black Panther Party,’” Adams told Fox News, adding that political appointees Loretta King, acting head of the civil rights division, and Steve Rosenbaum, an attorney with the division since 2003, ordered the dismissal.

Adams went on as to why:

“The [voting] section doesn’t want to protect white voters.” And he named names. He testified that Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes told Voting Section management that there would be no more cases brought against black defendants vindicating the rights of white victims. Adams personally heard Fernandes say that the division would only bring “traditional civil rights cases” (code words for suits against white racists). Adams also heard Fernandes say that she had no interest in the Voting Section enforcing Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act (which requires purging rolls of ineligible voters to prevent voter fraud), because Section 8 does not increase voter turnout.

Was this a voter intimidation case? Why don’t we let King Samir Shabazz speak for himself:

“You want freedom? You’re gonna have to kill some crackers. You going to have to kill some of their babies.”

This is one of the men for whom Barack Obama stopped justice.

The Obama administration won a default judgment in federal court in April 2009 when the Black Panthers didn’t appear in court to fight the charges. But the administration moved to dismiss the charges in May 2009. Justice attorneys said a criminal complaint, which resulted in the injunction, proceeded successfully.

A more complete story can be found here

One could only imagine how quickly the full force law would rain down on Karl Rove were he to stand at a polling place in Washington DC brandishing a baton.

Christian Adams clues us into the next example of how the Obama administration will only selectively enforce the laws of the United States.

Right now, the Holder Justice Department has a submission from Ike Brown to allow him to do precisely the same thing he tried in 2003 — prevent people from voting based on their party loyalties.

In the bizarro world of Barack Obama, the Justice Department of the United States prosecutes those who try to enforce the laws and protects those who violate the law.

Justice is supposed to be blind. Not stupid. You decide who is right.

Top 3 remain the same in AP Pro32 rankings (The Associated Press)
NEW YORK (AP) -- There was no change in the top three spots in the latest AP Pro32 power rankings.

NFL enjoys record TV ratings despite Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson scandals (Shutdown Corner)


NFL TV ratings on the rise despite domestic violence fumble (Reuters)
By Eric Kelsey LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Americans are tuning into NFL football in greater numbers than last year, according to early season viewership figures, signaling the league's fumbled handling of domestic violence cases has not dented its overall popularity. Through the first three weeks of the season, audiences watching nationally televised primetime broadcasts have risen and nearly all networks have seen an uptick in viewership so far this season. ...

Shutdown Corner NFL Power Rankings: Dallas Cowboys, please rise (Shutdown Corner)
Let's be serious for a moment here. And I have to kick the really over-the-top crazy Dallas Cowboys fans out of the room now so we can have a real conversation. OK, good. Now ... what in the heck is going on in Dallas? Look, you didn't see this coming, I didn't see this coming, nobody did. But now there's no getting around it: The Dallas Cowboys look good. They look great. Had Tony Romo not made some big Week 1 mistakes against the 49ers, they might be 4-0 with some quality wins. I just don't know how we got here. The Cowboys didn't add much in the offseason, and the defense lost Jason Hatcher, DeMarcus Ware and Sean Lee. Romo was coming off back surgery. They've been the epitome of mediocre for years. All of a sudden, they're good. Logically, it makes little sense. Sunday night's dominant win over the Saints was their statement that they're for real. Now, "for real" comes and goes in the NFL in 2014 as quickly as Jon Gruden compliments a mundane play on "Monday Night Football." Teams look great one week and incompetent seven days later. Nothing is permanent. But right now, the Cowboys deserve a huge bump up the rankings. Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli would get my coach of the year vote at this point. He has been that good. The Cowboys' offense has reinvented itself by building around DeMarco Murray and a great run-blocking offensive line. They deserve all the credit you can give them. I guess that's the beauty of the NFL. Things that are completely unforeseen can actually happen. We're seeing it in Dallas. Here are the post-Week 4 power rankings: 32. Oakland Raiders (0-4, LW: 31) Head coach Dennis Allen got fired, and general manager Reggie McKenzie can't be far behind. Remember, they have the oldest roster in the NFL. Bad, bad, bad. 31. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-4, LW: 30) No one player is going to totally turn this team around, not even a huge upgrade at quarterback. They're just not good at all. But they're also very young and you'd assume they'll improve as this season goes on. 30. Washington Redskins (1-3, LW: 28) Or maybe I was right to be skeptical of Kirk Cousins. 29. Tennessee Titans (1-3, LW: 23) How in the world did they look so good at Kansas City in Week 1? That's the weirdest result of the NFL season so far, right?
