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.

Chargers' Rivers squarely focused on playoff run (The SportsXchange)
Year Two of Camp McCoy has arrived at Chargers Park, and quarterback Philip Rivers might just embrace a repeat of Year One. The Chargers opened training camp on Thursday, their second under coach Mike McCoy, and what does Rivers do for an encore? McCoy's up-tempo offensive approach was among the reasons Rivers had a phenomenal 2013 season. "I think's it's to try and win more than nine games and find a way to reach your ultimate goal," Rivers said.

Smith plans to meet soon with Commissioner Goodell (The Associated Press)
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith expects to sit down with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell ''in the near future'' to discuss any potential suspension for his off-field issues. Smith was sentenced last Friday to serve three years of probation and to spend 11 days with a work crew after he pleaded no contest to drunken driving and weapons charges. Smith said he hasn't had time to begin the work yet, and will do so as his time permits. Of the ruling, Smith said he's ''glad how it worked out.'' He didn't want to guess whether he would face a suspension from the league, and said he's unsure whether Ravens running back Ray Rice's two-game penalty Thursday for his offseason arrest for domestic violence provides any indication.

Ravens' Rice suspended over assault incident (AFP)
Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice avoided jail time in his off-season arrest on an assault charge, but was Thursday suspended two games by the NFL over the incident. Rice was arrested in February and charged with simple assault-domestic violence after an incident involving then-fiancee Janay Palmer at a casino in Atlantic City. Surveillance video posted online by TMZ.com showed Rice lifting a motionless Palmer out of an elevator and onto a hallway floor.

Manning getting used to new faces on Broncos (The Associated Press)
Though his physical condition is no longer a big question mark for Peyton Manning, when he looks around at training camp, he must feel like he's starting over again. Manning lined up for his first snaps Thursday behind an offensive line that has been shuffled, in front of a running back who took only about 25 percent of the snaps last year and looking down the line at some pass catchers, who 12 months ago, were either bit players or playing somewhere else. The quarterback who thrived on the familiarity of playing with the same receivers - Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison - same tight end - Dallas Clark - and same running backs - either Edgerrin James or Joseph Addai - year after year in Indianapolis, is now having to adjust to a revamped offensive roster to start his third year in Denver. ''I've always felt the NFL does not owe you anything.'' But even by an NFL roster's constantly shuffling standards, the Broncos did some major reorganizing around their franchise quarterback - the 43-8 loss to Seattle in the Super Bowl exposing too many problems for the AFC champions to stand pat.

Titans sign No. 11 pick Lewan (The SportsXchange)
Rookie offensive tackle Taylor Lewan signed a four-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, closing the book on contract negotiations for the 2014 NFL Draft class. Lewan was the last player selected in May to sign his rookie deal. Despite not really having a guaranteed starting spot for Lewan to make an immediate impact as a rookie, the Titans pulled the trigger with the future in mind when he was surprisingly on the board with the 11th overall pick. Tennessee already has veteran left tackle Michael Roos, a starter since his rookie year of 2005, and the team recently signed right tackle Michael Oher to a four-year, $20 million contract.

Ravens' Rice suspended by league for two games (Reuters)
(Reuters) - Baltimore Ravens' Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice was suspended by the National Football League on Thursday without pay for the first two games of the 2014 regular season for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Rice has also been fined an additional game check for "conduct detrimental to the NFL" for his arrest in February following a fight he had with his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer. An anti-bullying advocate and three-time Pro Bowl pick, Rice was accepted into a pre-trial intervention program in May, thus avoiding jail time. "The league is an entity that depends on integrity and in the confidence of the public and we simply cannot tolerate conduct that endangers others or reflects negatively on our game," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.

Panthers' Newton, Hardy ready to practice (The SportsXchange)
Three months and six days after ankle surgery, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was medically cleared to participate in training camp when the team opens with a Friday night workout. Newton was ahead of schedule and participated in on-field sessions in June. Head coach Ron Rivera said questions about the quarterback's mobility are moot until he is on the field in "live situations." Game situations are not expected to be simulated this week and Newton will not be exposed to contact in scrimmages. Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman said Newton was cleared for all individual and team drills.

Ravens RB Rice receives 2-game suspension from NFL (The Associated Press)
Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice received a two-game suspension from the NFL on Thursday following his offseason arrest for domestic violence. Rice will miss the season opener against AFC North champion Cincinnati on Sept. 7 and the Sept. 11 game on Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The six-year veteran was arrested following a Feb. 15 altercation in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in which he allegedly struck then-fiancee Janay Palmer. The 27-year-old Rice has been accepted into a diversion program, which upon completion could lead to the charges being expunged.

Ravens' Rice suspended two games (The SportsXchange)
Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been suspended for the first two games of the regular season by the NFL following his offseason arrest on an assault charge stemming from an incident with his fiancee. Rice stands to lose more than $470,000 in base salary and will also be fined $58,000, per the report. "We appreciate the thorough process the league office used to evaluate the incident with Ray Rice," general manager Ozzie Newsome said Thursday in a statement. "The time the Commissioner spent with Ray and Janay is typical of the extra steps the NFL takes when making decisions regarding discipline issues.

Ravens CB Ross tears Achilles during conditioning test (The SportsXchange)
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Aaron Ross tore his Achilles tendon during the team's conditioning test and is out for the 2014 season. Coach John Harbaugh said the likely nickel cornerback in his first season with the team could be placed on injured reserve. A pair of fifth-round picks, 2011 draft choice Chykie Brown, and Asa Jackson (2012), are in line behind starters Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith.

Ravens bracing for Rice absence (The SportsXchange)
The Baltimore Ravens are still waiting to hear from the NFL regarding a potential suspension for running back Ray Rice following a felony aggravated assault case this offseason. Rice was involved in a domestic violence incident with his wife at an Atlantic City casino. The NFL has yet to rule on his status for the season, but a potential multigame suspension is expected. "It's not my decision to make, or any of us here," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.
