Charter plane thought to be carrying
immigrants arrives in San Diego

Los Angeles Times, by Tony Perry

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/4/2014 11:14:58 PM

A charter plane believed to be carrying immigrants arrived this evening at San Diego’s Lindbergh Field, apparently from Texas. Three Homeland Security buses arrived a few minutes later, trailed by numerous law enforcement vehicles. There is no information as to the buses´ destination. Earlier this week, federal officials said that 140 immigrants who had been detained crossing the border in Texas would arrive Friday. But since the blockade by protesters Tuesday at Murrieta, officials have declined to provide information about the movement of the immigrants.

Comments:
In monetary terms, this is costing the federal government (taxpayers) a whole lot of overtime to keep their scam of delivering illegal aliens to neighborhoods that sane people don´t want flooded with these criminals. Say the "children" are innocent, but like in our court system, this makes the parents or guardians libel. They should all be deported. 0bama´s talking about stopping "future" influxes is to reopen the debate for amnesty as their "end game."

Where in the Constitution is there authority to charter planes to play hide the illegal minors? Where are the funds coming from? Where is the most open administration in history?

Yes #6 - probably the most important question. It seems like American people are still so passive that they don´t even demand much from Congress. So much for checks and balances. Boehner surrendered to Ibama long ago. He refused to use the power of the purse.

These illegal aliens should be brought to the neighborhood of those who are pushing for this onslaught. Washington, first, then all the fancy neighborhoods in Maryland where the ´elite´ live. Then I´d say send even more, preferably the older aliens, to San Francisco. Lots of liberals there to help out, right?

Watching the country being destroyed by an American hating two bit community organizer is very painful for those of us here at Lucianne as evidenced by so many of the comments. Like many others I ask, where is the outrage from our elected officials? We are drowning in debt and Obama brings in thousands to add to the welfare rolls. The leadership in Washington is hiding I their closets because they know if they say anything the least bit negative they will be pilloried by Obamabots and the media. They are too cowardly to explain this is totally illegal, we can´t afford it, and is a rolling and flying health crisis. I am beyond disgusted. The country is being purposefully thrown into crisis mode and the dolts in Washington are happy because the stock market is soaring. Wake up. If you can´t or won´t act when the country is being attacked by a lawless jack wagon, what good are you?

So now we see what has happened:

1. We don´t know how long ago, but the government´s website requested applications for drivers to take 60,000 immigrants from the border to border towns. (Cannot remember name of site but we learned about it her on Lucianne.)

2. Drivers were hired and drove illegals to wherever their orders told them to go.

3. Someone gave the go-ahead in Central American media to send their poor here, without their parents. It´s happening.

4. Someone in our government, without the knowledge of the American people (and perhaps not even our media), made all the arrangements to recruit illegals to flood all border towns and bring their babies and their diseases with them.

5. And this is the worst part: On our tax dollars, ad infinitum, these illegals are now being taken to all large cities (and maybe smaller ones, too) so that each city´s system will be overloaded with caring for them.

It´s class Cloward-Piven: Flood the system with people who cannot contribute, or won´t contribute. Collapse the system from within. Raise everyone´s taxes to pay for the illegals and make every illegal sign something (at some point) that will register them as Democrats.

The only thing that hasn´t yet been done is to get them to vote en masse for Democrats. This is another way to rig the elections. We don´t even need rigged voting software, although I´m sure the Democrats will use that, too.

So there you have it. Left to their own devices, the cities that get these illlegals now have to pay for them. That means you.

3. Buses and planes are now being used

´ wonder what the mentality of the Federal workers is who are helping coordinate this invasion? Are they just mindless robots? Guess so-they definitely are expendable.

Well if Obama´s goal is to turn these sick illegals into Democrat voters, it won´t benefit him anytime soon, considering their age, however the financial damage/pathogen risk will be immediate.

I guess the border agents, the supervisors at ICE and all the plane pilots and personnel are "just following orders". This is how it started in Germany, Japan, Iraq, Cuba and any other dictatorship you can think of. The government workers there (and now here) did what they were told --- even if it meant screwing a fellow citizen and breaking written law --- in exchange for keeping their jobs, pay checks, etc.

Then it just got a little worse each time and if you were smart, you kept your mouth shut and your head down. You justified your own bad and illegal behavior by saying "someone has to do it --- and why should my family lose its income & suffer in hard times when I get fired"! Never mind how you´re hurting your fellow citizens and neighbors. Never mind what YOU ARE doing is wrong, you do it anyway. It grows like a cancer and pollutes the people who would never do such a thing --- until they do it.

The prison guards at those famous camps may not have all been willing participants but they went along anyway.

Yes, this is Obama´s greatest contribution. Turning us against each other and hoping for chaos so he can take over.

#26 I really don´t understand what you are talking about. Breitbart was the first one to break the news on this illegal mass invasion, the rampant disease, the abuse of the Border Patrol and the appalling conditions housing these illegals. It began June 5. It´s shocking to think this invasion has been going on unabated for a month now. Their coverage was even reported in the Daily Mail. Fox News has also been covering this every day. The MSM are the ones who should be attacked for their media malpractice in not reporting this horrific invasion. Their only goal is to cover for the dictator Obama.

The only ones who can stop this are the Democrats.
House Republicans may have the Constitutional power of the purse , but, whatever budget
they propose must then go to the Senate.
Where´s it´s DOA.
Then the House Republicans and Senate Democrats have to negotiate a spending compromise.
Otherwise you get another government shutdown.
The two year Ryan Murray budget
passed the House and Senate in December of 2013 and was signed by Obama
before this wave became public.
This is why a Republican Senate is so important , in addition to confirming judicial nominees.
With Democrats presently controlling the Senate, the DOJ, the presidency and the media ,
Boehner and McConnell have very limited Constitutional options.
Talkers like Hannity and Limbaugh and others always falsely imply to their listeners
that the House Republicans alone have the sole power to enact budgets and spending.

What this means to me: I can´t go anywhere in San Diego, whether it is a park, most neighborhoods or just on the street without gang or just plain immigrant tagging. It is the nature of the beast.

Someone tagged the outside of my back fence a few weeks ago, and there isn´t anything out past my fence except for coyotes, a canyon and now I guess illegal aliens or third world people who will never meld with a decent society.

I know eventually they will climb over the fence and rob my home or worse. I hope I´m home. I´ve ordered security cameras that with strategic placement will record anything going on outside. What is convenient is you can check at any time what is going on outside and inside your home with your cell phone.

I hope that creep in the WH is happy. He lives in a protected world and I bet the WH hasn´t been spray painted nor do they have public toilets in town where there are people from a third world society that throws used toilet paper on the floor and while they are at it, spray paint everything inside.

Obama isn´t any better. To put it plainly, he is a lying crook who doesn´t know any better and he messes up everything he touches. He is so third worldish.

Called office of Gov. of MA, said 2 planeloads of the "children" have arrived here, asked where children are now. Answers, repeated over and over, no matter what I said:
1) Haven´t heard about any planes
2) Immigration is a federal matter.
Pretty much same for other state and fed elected rep offices that I called. Googled: latest report is 6 planes landed in MA. Absolutely no word on where the "children" are. Pester your reps: where are the "children" that have been brought to your state.

John Kerry’s big blunder in

Washington Post Writers Group, by David Ignatius    Original Article

Secretary of State John Kerry has made a significant mistake in how he’s pursuing a Gaza cease-fire — and it’s not surprising that he has upset both the Israelis and some moderate Palestinians. Kerry’s error has been to put so much emphasis on achieving a quick halt to the bloodshed that he has solidified the role of Hamas, the intractable, unpopular Islamist group that leads Gaza, along with the two hard-line Islamist nations that are its key supporters, Qatar and Turkey. In the process, he has undercut not simply the Israelis but also the Egyptians and the Fatah movement that runs the Palestinian Authority, all of which want to see an end to

Illegal immigrant demonstrators were protesting outside the White House on Monday – but don’t expect America’s immigration officers to intervene. An Immigration and Customs Enforcement official indicated that even if the protesters end up getting arrested by D.C. police, they’d have to be serious criminals for ICE to get involved. “Unless the individuals meet ICE’s enforcement priorities, it’s unlikely that the agency would get involved in the case,” the official told FoxNews.com. Under a policy that’s been in effect for several years, ICE focuses deportation mostly on serious criminals and – in some cases -- those caught in the

A U.S. appeals court struck down Virginia´s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage on Monday, the second appeals court to come out in favor of gay marriage. A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, ruled 2-1 to affirm a February ruling by a federal judge who struck down the state ban as unconstitutional. "Denying same-sex couples this choice prohibits them from participating fully in our society, which is precisely the type of segregation that the (U.S. Constitution´s) Fourteenth Amendment cannot countenance," the decision said. The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down same-sex

U.S. spying programs are making government sources too skittish to divulge sensitive information to reporters, especially on computer-based technology, making it difficult for journalists to hold powerful entities to account, according to a 120-page report released Monday. The American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Watch said it interviewed dozens of journalists, lawyers and senior government officials for its joint report, which found these professionals are “adopting elaborate steps or otherwise modifying their practices to keep communications, sources, and other confidential information secure in light of revelations of unprecedented U.S. government surveillance of electronic communications and

The United States government has delivered almost three quarters of a million weapons to Afghanistan’s army and police since 2004 but can’t track where those arms went, according to a new report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, known as SIGAR.

But arming the police and army has been plagued by a lack of accountability, the report says. The weapons distributed to Afghan forces include 465,000 small arms, the report says. But that number might not be accurate,

President Obama is re-naming an African fellowship program in honor of the late South African freedom fighter Nelson Mandela. Obama will make the announcement Monday during a town-hall-style meeting with guests who participated in the inaugural — and soon to be re-named — Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, officials said. Discussing the fellowship program during a visit to South Africa last year, Obama said that "we want to engage leaders and tomorrow´s leaders in figuring out how we can best work together." The meeting is one in a series of upcoming events dedicated to U.S.-African relations,

A statement put out today by President Barack Obama on the occasion of a religious holiday is raising some eyebrows. The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease. In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told Fusion TV´s Jorge Ramos that part of the reason Hamas hides rockets in schools and civilian areas is "Gaza is small." "I´m not a military planner but Hamas puts it´s missiles, it´s rockets in civilian areas, part of it is Gaza is pretty small and its densely populated," she said as neglecting the question of whether or not Hamas should have rockets in area to begin with.

Javier Bardem did not hold back on his feelings of disgust regarding the escalating violence in the Israeli-Palestine conflict. In an open letter sent out to the Spanish media over the weekend, he called Israel’s actions against Gaza a “genocide” and said he was outraged and ashamed by the "brutality" of the attacks. “In the horror happening right now in Gaza there is NO place for distance or neutrality,” Bardem wrote in the letter. “It’s a way of occupation and extermination waged against a people with no means, confined in a minimum territory, with no water, and where hospitals, ambulances and children

Malaysian politician says that including dogs in opening ceremony was ´disrespectful to Malaysia and Muslims´. The Commonwealth Games, which opened last week in Glasgow, Scotland in the presence of the Queen, was, like all sporting events these days, ushered into existence to the accompaniment of a lavish and visually impressive opening ceremony. But amidst the dancing mechanical giants and gay kisses, the organizers also sought to celebrate Scottishness by having each team led out by Scottie dogs wearing tartan coats embroidered with the name of the team. Social media, predictably, fell in love with the doggies, however now political and

You can understand President Obama´s current political problems -- and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall´s midterm election -- in a single word. And that word is "competence". Obama was elected in 2008 on a stated promise that he would restore competence to government. He pitched himself as the antidote to "Heck of a job, Brownie" and the Bush years, the person who would always put the most qualified candidate in every job in his Administration. That the basic functioning of government would never be in question. Almost six years on from

Washington – During an awards ceremony at the White House, President Barack Obama whispered in the ear of superstar musician Linda Ronstadt that he once had a crush on her. The President admitted to the crowd afterwards that, "I told Linda Ronstadt I had a crush on her back in the day " Ronstadt joined Obama on stage, along with 11 other recipients of the 2013 National Medal of Arts. No word from the singer of such hits as "You´re no good," "Desperado," "It´s so easy," and "Blue Bayou," on what she said back to the President. Obama also thanked

Illegal immigrants plan to picket the White House Monday afternoon, calling on fellow immigrant-rights advocacy groups to refuse to meet with the Obama administration until President Obama specifically includes illegal immigrants in any future meetings. “We are among the millions of people who will either benefit or be harmed by the decisions the President makes, and we are here to represent ourselves in any future negotiations,” said Rosi Carrasco, one of organizers, in a statement announcing the action. Billing themselves “undocumented immigrant leaders,” the organizers said they will erect a picket line to symbolize their demand. The groups are fighting

Geraldo Rivera hates it whenever any one around him refers to people illegally crossing the border as “illegals.” On Monday’s edition of Outnumbered he challenged FNC’s Ainsley Earhardt when she dared to use that phrase in his presence. Rivera barked: “Every time you say ‘illegals,’ it’s like fingernails on a black board!” Well Earhardt, along with a few of her co-panelists, fought back against Rivera’s insistence that the border-crossers were “law-abiding.” (video after the jump) The following is the relevant exchange as it was aired on the July 28 edition of FNC’s Outnumbered: Andrea Tantaros: Ainsley how does this move,

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee angered his Facebook fans after endorsing Sen. Lamar Alexander against conservative state Representative Joe Carr last month. Carr has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham for the August 7th primary. And Carr has been relentlessly hammering Alexander for voting for the Senate´s amnesty bill even after law enforcement officials warned Alexander that it would lure more illegal immigrants from Central America. Nearly every one of close to 450 comments beneath Huckabee´s announcement on his Facebook page blasts Huckabee for supporting Alexander. One Huckabee fan said, "We

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs. That’s all that remains from a failed experiment to assign every student a laptop at Hoboken Junior Senior High School. It began five years ago with an unexpected windfall of stimulus money from Washington, D.C., and good intentions to help the district’s students,

A leading drug policy researcher, David Murray, has a must-read piece up at the Hudson Institute website, "Comparing Marijuana and Alcohol: Seriously." Murray´s article is a devastating deconstruction of claims that marijuana is relatively safe, or at least safer than alcohol. And, as he points out, it thereby undermines much of the basis of the New York Times´s blithely irresponsible editorial endorsement of marijuana legalization. Read Murray´s whole piece. Here are highlights: It’s a remarkable weekend when one finds the Grey Lady arguing for state’s rights, and worrying huffily about arbitrary Presidential powers. But when it comes to smoking dope, the mind

President Barack Obama is practically weepy at the thought of his daughter Malia going off to college, a milestone many months away that is already on his mind. Malia barely reached up to her father´s shoulders when they moved to the White House nearly six years ago with her mother, little sister and grandmother. At 16, she stands nearly as tall as her 6-foot-1 dad and is visiting college campuses in preparation for that bittersweet day in the fall of 2016 when she trades her White House bedroom for a dorm. She has been seen touring the University of California
