´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.

A U.S. senator warned on Thursday that ISIS, the militant terror group sweeping across Iraq, aims to destroy an American population center and is working on a plan to do it. ´They´re crazy out there and they´re rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city and people just can´t believe that´s happening,´ Republican Sen.

The so-called Arab Spring has turned out to be a disaster. The promise of democracy and renewal has fallen through almost everywhere. Where has it prospered? Perhaps only in Tunisia, the nation where it began. Elsewhere the resultant chaos has seen a vicious group of jihadists stake its claim in the Middle East while the West has watched, seemingly paralysed.

A rocket fired by terrorists in Gaza has caused considerable damage to a synagogue in the southern Israeli city of Ashdod. Paramedics from the United Hatzalah and Magen David Adom emergency organizations rushed to the scene, after a massive explosion was heard. Three people were injured and have been evacuated for further medical treatment after receiving first aid. Medical sources described two of the victims as males, aged 25 and 26, who suffered shrapnel injuries to their extremities. They have been evacuated to the Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot.

David Ricardo´s Theory of Comparative Advantage has broken down after 200 years, or so I learned at the Lindau forum of Nobel laureates in Bavaria. The theory published in 1817 has been a guiding principle of free trade, taken as a given by every student of economics in the modern era. It has served us well, but just as Newton´s theory of gravity ran into limits and was overtaken by Einstein´s relativity, comparative advantage no longer explains the world. Under Ricardo´s model, inequality was supposed to narrow within countries as globalisation accelerated exponentially in the Nineties. Instead it is getting wider.

President Barack Obama reacted to the on-camera slaying of photojournalist James Foley for five minutes on Wednesday, telling a global audience that ´when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.´ Minutes later he began a five-hour round at Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha´s Vineyard for his seventh visit to the links, so far, during a vacation that began August 9. The decision brought a chorus of condemnation from TV commentators, journalists, conservative partisans and Twitter denizens – and even an unintentional slap from the left-leaning New York Times.

He had just hung up the telephone with the devastated parents before heading in front of the cameras. Unusually emotional, President Obama declared himself “heartbroken” by the brutal murder of an American journalist, James Foley, and vowed to “be relentless” against Islamic radicals threatening to kill another American. But as soon as the cameras went off, Mr. Obama headed to his favorite golf course on Martha’s Vineyard, where he is on vacation, seemingly able to put the savagery out of his mind. He spent the rest of the afternoon on the links even as a firestorm of criticism erupted over

President Obama has few remaining friends—either in his own party or in the media.That’s the unmistakable conclusion of two pieces this week in the New York Times. Just about everyone, it seems, is down on his single, solitary nature.I’ve been saying for a year now that the president’s liberal media allies have soured on him. It started with the ObamaCare debacle and continued through his seeming passivity or slow reaction time in the wake of the VA scandal, the Bowe Bergdahl mess, the military collapse in Iraq and so on. At this point they’re basically Waiting for Hillary. What is striking

Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department´s top brass told FoxNews.com. “The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.” According to the well-placed source, Wilson was coming off another case in the neighborhood on Aug. 9 when he ordered Michael Brown and

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) suggested that Republican candidates in this year´s midterm elections should run on granting a pathway to citizenship for all of the country´s illegal immigrants. Ryan, who had reportedly been working behind the scenes with Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) to get House Republicans to support a broader immigration bill, said that he was "having problems" convincing conservatives to support immigration reform, which he said was "very important." In a Wednesday interview with Bloomberg News, Ryan said he supported a "path to legalization" for all of the country´s illegal immigrants. He said illegal immigrants should be able to "earn citizenship"

I’ve stayed out of the Ferguson controversy. I don’t know enough to know who, exactly, is to blame in Ferguson. (Snip) That said, here is something I do know, and that I think would benefit readers as they assess the growing animosities in Missouri: I’ve long studied the antics of the American Communist Party, from literally the very beginning. I’ve sat in archives and stared at the first documents that American communists excitedly sent from their offices at 1219 Blue Island Avenue in Chicago to Soviet Comintern headquarters in Moscow. I’ve spent hundreds of hours reading old copies of the Soviet-funded

Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that his Justice Department is opening a criminal investigation into the brutal execution by Islamic State militants of American journalist James Foley, in the latest move by the administration to use the criminal justice system to pursue terrorists. The announcement comes as the administration steps up its airstrike campaign against the same militant organization -- and mulls additional American boots on the ground in Iraq. Holder, during remarks in Washington, confirmed the "open criminal investigation" into Foley´s beheading, which was recorded and posted online this week. "Those who would perpetrate such acts need to understand something --

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio is narrating a new series about climate change that is being released ahead of a United Nations climate summit next month. DiCaprio, a staunch environmentalist, and Tree Media launched the Green World Rising series of short films, all centering around certain aspects of climate change. The first film in the series, titled "Carbon," calls for more federal action to control carbon dioxide pollution. “We cannot sit idly by and watch the fossil fuel industry make billions at our collective expense. We must put a price on carbon — now,” DiCaprio said in a statement. The eight-minute long

Bill Clinton enjoys a Gurkha cigar, "the Rolls Royce of the cigar industry." He "loves the Gurkhas," Gurkha chief executive officer Kaizad Hansotia, maker of the HMR cigar, which stands for His Majesty´s Reserve. It is, according to Hansotia, "the world´s most expensive cigar." One box is $25,000 -- and the price will rise next year to $30,000. "The cigars are close to $1,000 each," says the cigar boss to Bloomberg. "People try to copy us a lot, but we have no competition," says Hansotia. "We tell everybody, please smoke a Cuban cigar. And then smoke our cigars. And once

The Washington Post editorial board said Friday it will stop using the word “Redskins” when referring to Washington’s football team, joining a growing list of other commentators who have renounced the term because they believe it disparages Native Americans. In a statement, the board said, “While we wait for the NFL to catch up with public opinion and common decency we have decided not to use the slur ourselves except when it is essential for clarity or effect.” The editorial board is separate from the news-gathering side of the organization, which executive editor Marty Baron said will continue to use the team’s
