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.

Arthur Brown aiming for starting job as Ravens start workouts (ProFootball Talk on NBC Sportsa)
When the Ravens made Arthur Brown a second-round pick last season, there were some that thought he’d step right into a starting role at inside linebacker with Ray Lewis and Dannell Ellerbe both leaving the team after winning the Super Bowl. Baltimore signed Daryl Smith, though, and Jameel McClain got the majority of the starts…

Ravens draft review: 2007 (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
As the Ravens continue to prepare for the 2014 draft, this week we are taking a look back at each of the Ravens draft classes of the previous seven years. We begin our review with the draft class of 2007, which was the last class that did not include John Harbaugh as coach. 3rd round Marshal Yanda, guard/tackle, Iowa

Where does Bengals' Dalton go from here? (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
With the Cincinnati Bengals, the quarterback is Andy Dalton. That sound you hear upon just the mention of his name is the gnashing of teeth by some Bengals fans. Dalton is a polarizing figure, and his contract is up after 2014. "He is what he is, and he will never change," ESPN insider scout Matt Williamson said in a piece about quarterbacks at the crossroads.

Ravens begin voluntary offseason workouts (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
The Ravens officially began their voluntary offseason program Monday at their practice facility in Owings Mills, but with restrictions mandated by agreement between the NFL and the players association. Only strength and conditioning coaches will be on the field working with players. While quarterback Joe Flacco will be allowed to throw to his receivers, defensive backs are not allowed to cover those receivers. This is the first phase of the offseason program, which lasts two weeks.

Draft chatter: Will Ravens consider trading down? (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
The Ravens could find themselves in position to trade the 17th pick, if some top-rated quarterbacks are still on the board. Trading up to get the 17th pick might be enticing for quarterback-needy teams hoping to land Teddy Bridgewater or Derek Carr. Take the Cardinals, who have the 20th pick. Carson Palmer is their starting quarterback, but he is also 34 years old, and the Cardinals have to think about grooming a quarterback of the future.

Compelling argument against Manziel to Browns (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
From the outside and maybe the inside, too the biggest question about the Cleveland Browns pick at No. 4 in the first round of the draft is whether they would take Johnny Manziel. But after you read the clear-eyed analysis of the former Texas A&M star by sharp observer Greg Cosell of NFL Films, you will realize there is only one answer to that question: a resounding no. Manziel has shown too many bad habits and a lack of quarterback smarts, coupled with his small stature for an NFL QB a shade under 6 feet to make it worth spending such a high pick on him. Heres how Cosell sums up Manziel: You see a quarterback who creates his own problems with what appears to be a lack of understanding and discipline, and then once in a while he makes an unbelievable unstructured play.

Ravens have ammunition to have one of better drafts (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
The Ravens should expect to land at least three eventual starters in this years draft, according to NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah. As a former scout with the Ravens, Jeremiah is familiar with general manager Ozzie Newsomes approach to the draft. The Ravens have eight picks overall, including four in the top 99. The Ravens also had four top 100 picks in 2012 when they drafted linebacker Courtney Upshaw (No. 35), guard Kelechi Osemele (60th), running back Bernard Pierce (84th), and center Gino Gradkowski (98th).
