´Return to sender!´ Hundreds of furious
protestors block road for buses carrying
140 women and children illegal immigrants
and force them back to the border

Daily Mail [UK], by James Nye

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/2/2014 6:10:36 AM

A crowd of 300 angry protestors forced three buses carrying 140 undocumented migrant children and their parents to turn around in Murrieta, California, on Tuesday after they blocked the road. The dramatic confrontation between the flag waving protestors and the Homeland Security buses came one day after Mayor Alan Long urged residents to resist the federal government´s plan to transfer the Central American migrants to California to ease overcrowding of facilities along the Texas-Mexico border. Holding up banners that said ´Return to Sender´ and suggesting the children should be sent to the White House instead, the irate protestors succeeded when the buses

The article mentions twice that these illegals are ´fleeing vilolence and extortion´ in their own countries. Do your homework James. Obama made it clear that this would be a free for all in direct violation of our immigration laws and they were even advertising this in South America. They were sent here ahead of their families to collect welfare and any other taxpayer funded giveaway they can get. Obama finally figured out how to deliver on a campaign promise.

This is what Obama should have done from the start (except for the fact that flooding our country with illegals has been his plan all along).

Even the Daily Mail has bought into the fable that these are fleeing arrived at the border fleeing violence and extortion from gangs in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras as was mentioned several times throughout the article.

Since we can no longer count on "law enforcement" to stop the madness that the illegal-in-chief not only condones, but encourages, it is now ecessary for American Citizens to "return them to sender". Good for the 300 "angry" protesters! BTW, the DM, which does do gossip (though not as much as the NYPost) is one of the FEW places to get information on what is really going on in OUR country. Disgraceful.

The first news outlet I check in the morning is the Daily Mail. It is truly sad that they cover the U.S. better than the U.S. press.

Good for these protestors! This has to stop. They talk about these people fleeing crime, but they pay people to bring them over -- bad people; drug cartels. And, like that poor little boy, get left in the desert to die. The criminals south of the border (and north of it, too) need to know that we will push back.

There is nothing sweeter than watching an exhibition of good ol´ American common sense. God bless these people! It has come to the point now that we cannot count on our pathetic policitians to do what is right for American citizens. I hope every community in this country that is faced with this situation does the same thing. If we don´t rise up and let it be heard that we aren´t going to take it anymore, we can only expect more of the same. The people who blocked the road are truly American heroes and it is a beautiful thing to see. Power of the people is what will put fear in the hearts of our overlords in Washington DC.

If I hear one more commentator, even our own, say "of course, I have sympathy for these poor little children so far from home..." I will scream.

There are millions of poor little children in the world who would love to come to this country. Why are Central American and Mexican children so much more desrving of enjoying the blessings of the US then say poor children in Ukraine, Moldova, Thailand, etc?

Ironic though that one poor child whose mother drowned trying to reach US shores was returend to the very country he and she were trying to flee. I guess not all Hispanic child immigrants are equal.

It seems to be a canned protest - astroturf. I bet the MSM will spin this as a radical right wing group of evil haters and there is a pressing need to clamp down on all right wing groups right away.

#24, FTA:

Mayor Alan Long has warned his citizens to expect busloads of people every 72 hours for the next several weeks.

And there were three busloads with 140 illegal immigrants on them this time.

If I heard that from our mayor I´d be out there too. Doesn´t need a lot of organization, just need to know the date, time and place which can be broadcast over radio and TV and certainly by mouth.

Wouldn´t hurt to e-mail this news out to everyone you can.

Hooray for this town, its citizens and mayor. Since this chaos, turmoil and hardship was apparently ´planned´ way back in January by the ´powers that be in DC´, you´d think they would have planned it more carefully. It´s as if they want this kind of situation to occur - to bring America down even a few more notches, to put American citizens in a terrible situation which apparently is going to get a lot worse. It, sadly, looks as if everything is going as Obama had hoped and had in mind when he took office.

Obama, his family and henchmen are not truly having to deal with this mess. They are comfortable, living in luxury and living the good life. Believe this is just what Obama wanted, which is chilling. When will it end? Who, or what group of patriots, will finally stop this - legally, of course. Perhaps Jonathan Turley should lead the charge - not for any party, but for the sake of America.

Anyone who voted for the illegal Marxist should have at least a half dozen of these illegals delivered right to their doorsteps, be made to feed them, clothe them, educate them, provide healthcare, transportation, and vacations. They should be made to pay for what they have allowed to happen in this country. It would end REAL quick. Libs and socialists don´t like it when you take anything of THEIRS.

Pure Cloward-Piven actions by the Administration, the Democrats, and, at large, the Left, attempting to force destructive policy changes (e.g., amnesty) by overwhelming the system. Many have said that the encouragement for this invasion was explicit, and was kicked into high gear in January. Certain identifiable people and organizations are responsible. Make them pay. Direct evidence should be abundant, and should be on page one above the fold in every newspaper that still cares about this quaint entity called America.

This action by enraged American citizens is most encouraging, even inspiring. A strong enough backlash will do serious political (and quite possibly legal) damage to Obama and his acolytes, whose bad faith is as obvious as the sunrise. If any of these three hundred protestors are targeted for retaliation by the Administration, that, too, should be front page news. This ultra-serious game is winnable.

#35, to be fair, most of those who created all those vile policies for social change that "originated in California" were created by NON-native Californians--in other words, all the lefties who invaded this once great Golden State from the East Coast leftist elite and the radical hippy communist children from the 60s. Before the leftists invaded and destroyed California, it was a very nice moderate state with normal people and normal policies. Remember, Reagan hailed from California and he was even our Governor!

Oh, I meant to add...I am afraid that the leftist media and propaganda wing will take these photos and say..."look, it is all white people protesting the brown people!" "The whites are all raaaaaaacist" I do believe, however, that there are probably quite a few legal hispanics in the group. You just can´t tell from these photos who the people really are. I am Hispanic but I don´t look like I came from South of the border. But the left doesn´t care about truth--they only care about perception. They will do whatever it takes to create false perceptions in the public.

fleeing violence and extortion from gangs in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras

So if they are fleeing violence from those countries, why do they need to come all the way up here? Why not southern Mexico? Why not Belize, Nicaragua, or Costa Rica?

This BEE ESS about fleeing violence is so obviously bogus. Why do we see no pictures of the violence they are fleeing? It simply doesn´t exist as a cause for this influx. Obama has paid for these people to come here -- its patently obvious.

Kurdish forces ´retake Mosul
dam´ from IS militants

Kurdish forces in northern Iraq have taken control of Iraq´s largest dam after its capture by Islamic State (IS) militants, Kurdish officials say. Kurdish ground forces supported by US air strikes launched the operation to take Mosul dam on Sunday morning. Kurdish sources said they were still trying to clear mines and booby traps from the area round the dam, a process which could take several hours. The strategically important dam was seized by IS militants on 7 August. It supplies water and electricity to northern Iraq and there had been fears the IS militants could use it to flood

Nick Di Iorio, 28, Republican candidate for the 12th Congressional District in New York, experienced personally the precarious security situation in Israel on his visit to the Holy Land last week. A car driving Di Iorio from a visit to Sderot toward Jerusalem came under attack by a group of Arab boys “who hurled rocks at us and laughed,” Di Iorio recalled. Also in the car with Di Iorio was New York based philanthropist Ken Abramowitz, Chairman of American Friends of Likud, who accompanied him on his visit to Israel.

True to its usual ritual of condemning Israel and establishing an international commission of inquiry against it, the UN Council for Human Rights is directly responsible for the systematic killing of scores of Palestinians in Gaza.

Traditionally, the world, including Israel, has thought of the conflict as about territory, as a clash between cultures or a historical struggle.

A British Army colonel´s life was saved by a US soldier who jumped in front of an assassin´s hail of bullets, it has been reported. The US Army reservist, who normally works for Apple, the Silicon Valley-based electronics company, was shot six times as an Afghan assailant opened fire on a group of high-ranking officers at a military training academy earlier this month, The Sunday Times said. The reservist, who has not been named, used his body as a shield to literally "take a bullet" for the senior British officer, and was hit twice in the leg and once in the shoulder, with a further three rounds stopped by his bulletproof vest.

Kurdish forces supported by US air strikes are battling to retake Mosul dam from Islamic State (IS) fighters in northern Iraq. The operation to recapture the country´s largest dam began early on Saturday with raids by F-18 fighters and drones, US officials said. Kurdish Peshmerga fighters have shelled militants´ positions, and there is an unconfirmed report of a ground attack. Meanwhile, reports are coming in of new massacres by IS. The extreme Sunni group, which overran Mosul this summer and seeks to build a new state spanning Iraq and Syria, has been accused of a new massacre of non-Muslims on Friday, in a village

Stability. Security. The peace of mind that comes from being able to get a decent job and provide for your family, in a country that you feel has a good future ahead of it and that treats people fairly. In a nutshell, that is what people in Britain want--and what the Government I lead is dedicated to building. [Snip] True security will only be achieved if we use all our resources--aid, diplomacy, our military prowess--to help bring about a more stable world. Today, when every nation is so immediately interconnected, we cannot turn a blind eye and assume that there will not be a cost for us if we do.

He warns that Britain will have to use its “military prowess” to help defeat “this exceptionally dangerous” movement, or else terrorists with “murderous

Hamas has sounded a belligerent tone as negotiations for a long-term truce continue in Cairo. In a message posted on his Facebook page, Hamas´s "foreign affairs" chief Osama Hamdan said the Islamist terror group rejects the current Egyptian proposal, and pledged a "long war" of attrition against Israel. "Israel must accept the demands of the Palestinian people or face a long war," he said. Other Hamas officials issued similar statements over the course of Saturday. Hamdan´s Facebook message was posted not long before a message on the Twitter account of the "military wing" of Hamas, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, in which the group vowed

ISLAMABAD--Tens of thousands of protesters rallied Saturday in Pakistan´s capital, defying the pouring rain to demand the prime minister step down in the biggest challenge yet to the country´s government. Imran Khan, a famous cricketer who now leads the country´s third-biggest political bloc, and a fiery anti-government cleric called for the rallies in Islamabad, focused on making Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif leave office and holding new elections. Sharif, who took office just a year ago in the first democratic transfer of power in a country long plagued by military coups, has said he´ll stay in power, raising fears of possible

One of the nation’s best radio talk show hosts, Hugh Hewitt, interviewed Joe Scarborough, the host of one of the best political shows on television. According to Mr. Scarborough This is a president that does go out of his way to show that he’s not paying attention to what anybody says. He’s going to do exactly what he wants to do, and he’s going to be stubborn about it. He is politically, he is either politically tone deaf or he just doesn’t give a damn.

A Travis County grand jury today indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest. Grand jurors charged Perry, 63, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public official. The indictments stemmed from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.2 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget. The money was earmarked for the state’s Public Integrity Unit, which is housed in Lehmberg’s office. Perry’s veto forced

This is ridiculous. AUSTIN (KXAN) – A grand jury has handed up an indictment against Gov. Rick Perry in connection with the investigation into an effort to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign. Perry wanted Lehmberg to resign because she had been busted for drunk driving. It’s not good to have a drunk driver, captured on camera abusing the officers who arrested her, heading up the Public Integrity Unit. At the center of the issue is a complaint about intimidation stemming from Perry’s threat to veto of $7.5 million in state funding to the Public Integrity Unit

One person was shot and seven people arrested early this morning as police used smoke and tear gas to impose a curfew following the killing of an unarmed black teenager. Officers are seeking the person who shot the critically-wounded victim after the 12am-5am curfew took hold in Ferguson, Missouri - eight days after Michael Brown, 18, was shot dead by police. Police said their strong response came after people broke into a restaurant and took position on the roof overlooking officers, while another man flashed a handgun as armoured vehicles approached. Some 200 defiant protesters remained on the streets of

They say a prosecutor could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, and this always seemed like hyperbole, until Friday night a Texas grand jury announced an indictment of governor Rick Perry. The “crime” for which Perry faces a sentence of 5 to 99 years in prison is vetoing funding for a state agency. The conventions of reporting — which treat the fact of an indictment as the primary news, and its merit as a secondary analytic question — make it difficult for people reading the news to grasp just how farfetched this indictment is.

The scandal that erupted Friday night involved millions of dollars, statehouse power plays—oh yeah, and alcohol, police, and masks. Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted Friday on charges of abuse of power—a first degree felony—and coercion—a third degree felony. The charges stem from a 2013 scandal that has been quietly rumbling in the Lone Star State as Perry has been floated as a viable contender for the Republican nomination in 2016. This is a complex case, which might be why it has not made national headlines the way other recent, state-level scandals (like Bridgegate, in New Jersey) have. Below, I have outlined

Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown. Department of Justice spokesman Brian Fallon said it will be performed at the request of Brown´s family in addition to the one conducted by the state. Fallon also said that the Department of Justice will still take into account the state-performed autopsy during its civil rights investigation of Brown´s murder. Last week, Holder announced the federal probe following protests and outrage over the murder of the unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Since the murder, the town has erupted into multiple police clashes. Despite a

A grand jury in Travis County, Texas, indicted Governor Rick Perry today. Why? For exercising his constitutional prerogative by threatening to veto, and then vetoing, an appropriation to support the public corruption unit in Travis County’s district attorney’s office. This followed the arrest of the county’s district attorney, Democratic Party activist Rosemary Lehmberg, for drunk driving, after she was found “with an open bottle of vodka in the front passenger seat of her car in a church parking lot in Austin.” Ms. Lehmberg served 45 days in jail.The Travis County district attorney’s office has long been a cesspool of corruption.

NBC News reports: U.S. Army Major General Harold Greene was buried today at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors, including a caisson, two escort platoons, casket team, firing party, colors team, and a caparisoned horse. The U.S. Army band, “Pershing’s Own,” played softly as the funeral procession made its way down the long hill past the rows of simple white gravestones to bring General Greene to his final resting place. The graveside service began with a few words, followed by a 13-gun salute. The major general’s widow, Dr. Susan Myers, was seated in the front row. To her right

A ?friend who is conservative and ?Jewish asks a question: “Given ?Obama’s hostile treatment of ?Israel, isn’t it time for Jews to have their Ronald Reagan moment?” By that, he means when the Gipper said, “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me.” Without doubt, the party under Barack Obama has left those Jews who view Israel’s security as threatened. Obama recently told a New York Times interviewer, “Because Israel is so capable militarily, I don’t worry about Israel’s survival.” That’s shocking, considering Iran’s threat to wipe Israel off the map once it gets nukes. And even as Obama spoke, the

The Obama administration has done little to calm racial tensions as they spread from Manhattan to St. Louis to Los Angeles. Quite the opposite, some top officials have fueled African-American fears of racism with false accusations of anti-black discrimination. Attorney General Eric Holder’s race-baiting is no secret. Justice Department documents show the nation’s top cop gave thousands of dollars to help the Rev. Al Sharpton organize marches protesting the death of Trayvon Martin. Now he’s sent the civil-rights unit to St. Louis to do the same thing in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Less known, however, is the role of Labor Secretary Thomas

Although some Democrats are calling for Texas. Gov Rick Perry´s (R) resignation after he was indicted by a grand jury on Friday, a number of left-leaning observers immediately panned the allegations as unimpressive. Perry, an expected presidential candidate in 2016, is accused of "abuse of official capacity" and "coercion of [a] public servant" by publicly threatening to zero out a state prosecutor´s funding and then actually doing it. Several pundits, including former Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod, Clinton and Obama administration alum Jonathan Prince, Vox´s Matt Yglesias, and New York magazine´s Jonathan Chait, wrote on Twitter they couldn´t see what
