Government under fire for returning
41 asylum seekers to Sri Lanka after they
were escorted back by Australian border officials

Daily Mail [UK], by Daniel Mills

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/6/2014 10:18:14 PM

The Australian Government has ignored calls from the opposition and human rights groups who say they fear for the lives of 41 asylum seekers who were turned around and sent back to Sri Lanka on Sunday. Immigration Minister Scott Morrison has received a lashing for his handling of the issue from all sides of government, including former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser who said the return of asylum seekers at sea was similar to how Jews were treated by the Nazis back in the 1930s. The news has also outraged Labor frontbencher Penny Wong who has hit out at Mr Morrison´s ´brief

Morrison has the right of it. He´s looking at the U.S. and seeing the destruction wrought by illegals and doesn´t want Australia to become the same cesspit.

Free Gaza... From Hamas
Breitbart London [UK], by Emily Schrader    Original Article

Dozens of experts will be weighing in, in coming days, on Israel´s right to self-defence in response to hundreds of Hamas rockets raining down. But what about the Palestinian people, and what’s good for them? Yesterday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas accused Israel of committing "genocide" in Gaza with their current operation "Protective Edge." This type of inflammatory rhetoric is particularly rich coming from someone who is responsible for the murder of hundreds of Israelis (including the murder of the 1972 Israeli Olympic Team in Munich). Sadly, this is hardly the first time Abbas has made statements that, in light

A nasty polar vortex that wreaked havoc on the east coast in January is making a shock return next week--though don´t pull out your puffer coat just yet. Unseasonably chilly air is headed for parts of the northern and northeastern U.S. where residents have been sweltering in 90 degree weather this week--as one would expect in July. Thankfully, families won´t be plunged into the despair they endured during January´s brutally cold weather pattern. [Snip] According to the Washington Post, a deep pool of cool air from Alaska and Canada will plunge into the Great Lakes early next week. From there

Brazilian federal police say that some 200 Ghanaians have requested asylum after entering the country on tourist visas to watch the World Cup. The Ghanaians say they are Muslims fleeing inter-religious conflicts in their home country. They have filed their applications in the southern city of Caxias do Sul, in one of Brazil´s most prosperous areas. Another 1,000 Ghanaians are expected to request refugee status once the tournament is over, police said. The Brazilian authorities believe many of the Ghanaians are looking for the right to work legally in the country.

A visibly angry Sen. John McCain grilled the head of America´s border patrol on Wednesday over a policy that limits what members of Congress can do at detention facilities where the government is holding thousands of illegal immigrant children. ´I have never seen anything like your instructions, signed by your name. ... Are you telling me that [when] I visit a detention facility, that I can´t bring a cell phone with me?´ the Republican asked. ´Are you saying that? ...

President Barack Obama has backed off a request for Congress to give his administration more latitude to deport illegal immigrant children coming to the U.S. from Central America, two high-profile Republican members of Congress said today. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mike McCaul claimed this morning that the president did not include a formal request for Congress to change the existing law after telling them in a letter last week he supported revisions because his party successfully pressured him not to. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi did not indicate that her caucus

´Sit down,´ President Barack Obama begged--not ´get out´--after two Hispanic hecklers interrupted his economic speech on Thursday with shouts about illegal immigration. Then, for the first time in his presidency, the Secret Service stood down and Obama promised to meet with them before he left. [Snip] ´Come on, sit down. I’ll talk to you afterwards, I promise. I’ll bring you back. I’m wrapping things up here.´ The White House´s transcript of his remarks in the liberal enclave of Austin, Texas omits what the protesters said, but Obama replied, ´I understand.

Typhoon Neoguri, the worst storm to hit Japan in 15 years, is likely to reach areas near the tsunami-crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant by Friday morning, forecasters have warned. The site’s operator said workers were bracing for the storm, which has been downgraded from a typhoon to a ´severe storm´. “We are tying up cables and hoses... and making sure cranes and booms don’t fall,” a company spokesman said. “We will also beef up patrols in areas where water could flow in.” The storm’s massive downpours present an extra headache for the plant where workers are locked in a daily

Militants in Iraq have seized nuclear materials used for scientific research at a university, the United Nations has been warned. Iraq warned of the seizure in a letter on Wednesday to the U.N. in which appealed for help to ´stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq or abroad.´ In the letter, which has been obtained by Reuters, Iraq´s U.N. ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim said nearly 40kg of uranium compounds were kept at Mosul University. The city of Mosul, Iraq´s second largest city, was captured last month in a seizure led by the Islamic State in Iraq

Up to 20 people have been killed in air raids on Gaza, Palestinian officials say, as Israel continued its current offensive. The Palestinian health ministry said most died in attacks on a house and a cafe in Khan Younis in the south, bringing the overall death toll to 80. Militants in Gaza continued firing rockets into Israel on Thursday, with sirens sounding over southern towns. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon warned the situation was "on a knife-edge". [Snip] The Israeli military said that it had attacked 108 targets since midnight and that 12 rockets had been fired at Israel, seven

On Day 3 of Operation Protective Edge, barrage of rockets from Gaza fired at cities across Israel; Iron Dome intercepts several rockets above Tel Aviv; Dimona, home of nuclear reactor, targeted for second straight day. Code Red sirens sounded in several communities throughout Israel on Thursday afternoon as Israel´s anti-rocket system successfully intercepted a barrage of Hamas-fired projectiles over the Shfela region. Audible explosions were also heard in the Tel Aviv area , although no Code Red siren proceeded the explosions. Sirens sounded in areas of central Israel surrounding Tel Aviv, such as Lod, Ramle, and the Shfela, which absorbed

US President Barack Obama has sided with Republican Texas Governor Rick Perry on recommendations for improving security on the US-Mexico border. While visiting the state,Mr Obama said he had no "philosophical objection" to increasing the number of border patrol agents and repositioning them. But Mr Obama said the such action was held up by Congress´ delay in approving his request for extra funding. The White House asked for $3.7bn (£2.2bn) in extra funding on Tuesday. "Congress has the capacity to work with all parties concerned to directly address this situation," Mr Obama told reporters.

Imagine this: A siren blares, you are holding your child’s hand, you know in barely 15 seconds a Qassam rocket will land only yards away. [Snip] Without thinking, an Israeli mother or father will shield their child. In those 15 seconds--where the sound of the siren may well be the last thing you hear on this Earth--children are shielded by their parents. A human shield. A shield of love.

Sometimes forced to wait on rooftops, children are then ejected from these buildings, forced to ‘escort’ targeted militants--with

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible—and likely tumultuous—three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday. "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take." Rather, the aim is to display—if not actually engage in—a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on

Rick Perry (R-TX) inviting him to a meeting with President Obama regarding the Texas border crisis was from Valerie Jarrett. While it´s routine for staff to draft such letters for elected officials, matters of such magnitude and to other elected officials of stature are almost always in the name of the principle.

Thursday at her weekly briefing, House Minority Leader Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was asked why when she was Speaker of the House she did not move forward on the requests of her members to impeach then-President George W. Bush over the arguments his administration made for entering into war with Iraq in 2003. Pelosi accused Bush of being guilty of impeachable offense saying he "sent us into a war based on a false representation of the treat of weapons of mass destruction." But she added after the "shameful, irresponsible an wrong" attempted impeachment of President Bill Clinton she "did not want

Fate hasn´t been kind to Hillary Clinton, at least not in its most recent phase. In 2008, when the plate was set for the national Democrats, she lost the nomination to Barack Obama, of scant years and no gravitas, who soared out of nowhere to wrench destiny from her on the unspecified promise of "change." Now, "change" has come, and people don´t like it. Iraq changed from a safe, stable ally (just ask Obama) to a terrorist haven, one of the reasons why, though no fellow Democrats seem likely to edge her, her chances of winning the White House seem dim.

President Obama’s ultimate weakness may be that he believes his own blarney. A year ago, Mr. Obama boasted in a “fireside” Web chat that his “is the most transparent administration in history.” There was not the slightest hint of irony. He may actually believe it. But three-dozen organizations representing newspapermen and other journalists, mostly liberals, beg to differ. In a testy letter to the president on Tuesday, the group decried the “slick non-answers” and cold shoulders they’re getting from Mr. Obama’s representatives, who have restricted access to any information they consider embarrassing to the administration. “The stifling of free expression,” the signers

President Barack Obama does not believe his temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrant children has exacerbated the border crisis even though the number of illegal immigrant kids crossing the border spiked the year after he unilaterally enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012. In fact, Obama thinks programs like DACA and a comprehensive amnesty bill are ways to solve the border crisis. Addressing the press Wednesday after meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis in Dallas, Obama, when asked if programs like DACA have caused or contributed to the crisis,

Despite Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson vowing to "stem the tide" of unaccompanied illegal minors across the southern border with Mexico, thousands more are expected to enter the United States by the end of the year. With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities. Agents are also concerned about minors who have committed acts like torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States. "We have six minors in Nogales

Screenwriter James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut with the film, which will also star Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather´s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries.

O’Reilly dismissed Powers and told her, “You don’t seem to really know what you’re talking about.” That really set Powers off. “I am
