Mexican train derails, stranding 1,300
migrants headed toward U.S.

A cargo train used by Mexicans and Central Americans to travel toward the U.S. border derailed in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca on Wednesday, stranding about 1,300 migrants, emergency services said. Many of the migrants aboard were young people and nobody was injured when the train nicknamed "the Beast" came off the tracks, a spokesman for local emergency services said. Since last October, more than 50,000 unaccompanied minors, most from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, have been caught illegally crossing the southwest border of the United States. Children say that they are fleeing violence at home and hope that they will be

Comments:
Good!! May more of them derail.

"The Beast":

There´s a network of freight trains that runs the length of Mexico, from its southernmost border with Guatemala north to the United States. In addition to grain, corn or scrap metal, these trains are carrying an increasing number of undocumented immigrants whose aim is to cross into the U.S.

And despite the many deadly challenges it poses, more and more children — both with adults and alone — have been making the risky journey. That prompted President Obama this week to warn of "an urgent humanitarian situation."

These aren´t passenger trains; there are no panoramic windows, seats or even a roof to guard from sun or rain. People call the train La Bestia, or The Beast. Some call it the Death Train.

This is so outrageous!! 1300 humans being loaded in cattle cars and transported through South America to our border!!! Where are the humanitarians screaming against the brutality of it all?

We KNOW that these trains are coming, and you are telling me that there is no way that we can go to the border and say: "NO! NO MORE!

Bring these 1300 unscreened, sick, uneducated, poverty-ridden people directly to Burlington, VT or to Fairfax, VA, or to Gerorgetown or Chappaqua, NY. And, to Beacon Hill or Wellesley, MA or Hyannis Port.

We need action to stop this NOW! Not more money to settle them in, but to 1. Stop them from coming. 2. Send all of them back.

So the immediate and obvious question is . . . WHY are the Mexican authorities allowing this when they are supposedly unbending in allowing illegals into their country.

Until MEXICO stops shipping people north, their own and transients, CLOSE THE BORDERS TO ALL TRAFFIC. FREEZE AND CONFISCATE MEXICAN ASSETS TO USE FOR PAYING FOR THE ILLEGALS FREELOADING IN THE US. What? Shouting? Hmm. Darn.

Grunt sends.

They´re Muslims damnit! The children were used to go first to create chaos and overwhelm the system.

I have been looking at some of the mainstream newspapers to see how much they distort the news. MSNBC has the most pathetic, heart-wrenching headline of the "refugees." All mothers and little kids. It is staggering what pimps the news media have become.

who paid mexico and central America to allow these people to come here...
I think this is much bigger then just kids coming across the border...and if people are being paid to guide these kids then they are not "immigrants" the borders should be closed on just that law being broken...STATES RIGHTS...why cant these governors enforce that...

A National border between countries trumps State´s Rights!

BUT....I think Perry would be in his right as governor of a state that still retains the right to secede under certain conditions and I personally wish he would exercise that right and stop this insanity. This ´president´ breaks federal laws all the time. Perry should take steps to immediately though temporarily close the border and declare Texas a republic again!
Build the triple fence. I´ll contribute...most Texans would.

Note: Hate speech, not hate crimes. YouGov asked people about hate crimes for its poll too and found bipartisan support for the federal law that provides steeper penalties for crimes motivated by hatred of the victim’s race, religion, gender, or national origin. Sixty-four percent of Dems gave thumbs-up to that versus 54 percent of Republicans. A plurality of Republicans also support expanding that law to target hate crimes committed against gays: 44 percent say yes versus 30 percent who say no. Hate-crimes laws matter in the sentencing phase. If you’re guilty of the underlying offense, then you can be punished more

On Friday, a Washington D.C. hospital admitted a patient with possible Ebola symptons. If the patient is confirmed to have the virus, it would be the second documented case in the U.S. While we know the public is concerned about the spread of this incredibly dangerous virus, what many may not know is that it has the potential to impact the stock market, and the economy, even if it doesn’t spread. On Thursday, Yahoo Finance spoke with the Chief Economist at RBS, Michelle Girard, about trends in global markets and the economy, and she brought up the risk Ebola is posing to

Mitt Romney just made a savvy next step in his quiet, camouflaged 2016 campaign. Like a growing number of Americans, Romney refused to declare a political party when he filled out a new voter registration reform in Utah. It´s the sort of party-rejecting step that could position a reinvented Romney to become America´s first non-Democrat or Republican president since the 1800s. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the new Utah registration form completed and signed by Romney last August deliberately leaves out any party identification. As the Republican nominee in 2012 and a Republican candidate in 2008, this would seem to

The Democrat/Progressive Party may be signing their own death certificate in the 2014 elections with their mishandling of Ebola. One and half million people are quarantined in Sierra Leone. The first case has hit America. And all Obama has done is make a speech saying everything is fine here, but he’s sending American troops into harm’s way there. A ghastly virus that kills 50-100% of its victims and has no known treatment is something people notice. It is something women notice. Ebola is creating an epidemic of fear, for good reason.

Scientists to ‘fast-track’ evidence
linking global warming to wild weather
Independent (U.K.), by Tom Bawden    Original Article

Scientists are to challenge the climate-change sceptics by vastly improving the speed with which they can prove links between a heatwave or other extreme weather event and man-made changes to the atmosphere. It typically takes about a year to determine whether human-induced global warming played a role in a drought, storm, torrential downpour or heatwave – and how big a role it played. This allows climate sceptics to dismiss any given extreme event as part of the “natural weather variation” in the immediate aftermath, while campaigners automatically blame it on global warming. By the time the truth comes out most people have lost

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
