´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.

Well organized bunch. That gives me pause. Who organized them? How did they know a bus full of illegals was heading thru that check point at that time? Signs made before hand. Church group? Doubtful. 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. I might be wrong but my bs detector started ringing when this was in the LA Times.

#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.

In a shocking let down of security, two men managed to breach into the White House in two separate incidents within a 24-hour period, causing the building to be evacuated. In the first incident on Friday night, 42-year-old Omar Gonzalez of Coperas Cove, Texas, jumped the fence just minutes after US President Barack Obama, his daughter and her friend boarded a helicopter on the South Lawn, reports USA Today. Gonzalez, who was unarmed, was only tackled by security after managing to get inside the doors of the North Portico, the entrance facing Pennsylvania Avenue.[Snip] Then a second man on Saturday

Western states defeated a Russian proposal on Friday to remove Syria´s alleged past nuclear activities from the agenda of meetings of the UN atomic agency, diplomats said. But in a vote that highlighted how polarizing the global political debate has become, China supported Russia´s initiative while only about half of the nations on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) board - 17 out of 35 - voted against. Western diplomats argued that Damascus should be kept under pressure to cooperate with the IAEA´s long-stalled inquiry, even though this has hardly advanced in the last three years as the country descended into bloodshed.

A Mexican ecologist has blown the whistle on the corruption, lies and incompetence of the wind industry - and on the massive environmental damage it causes in the name of saving the planet. Patricia Mora, a research professor in coastal ecology and fisheries science at the National Institute of Technology in Mexico, has been studying the impact of wind turbines in the Tehuantepec Isthmus in southern Mexico, an environmentally sensitive region which has the highest concentration of wind farms in Latin America. The turbines, she says in an interview with Truthout, have had a disastrous effect on local flora and

Eric Frein, one of the FBI´s most wanted and the man authorities say killed a Pennsylvania state trooper last week, may soon be apprehended. For a second night, authorities on Friday closed roads near a home where a suspect in the ambush killing of a Pennsylvania State Police trooper recently lived with his parents, and this time gunfire was reported in the area. The shots were fired in the area around 6:40 p.m. Friday, a Monroe County 911 dispatcher said.

The failed Scottish vote to pull out from the United Kingdom stirred secessionist hopes for some in the United States, where almost a quarter of people are open to their states leaving the union, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll found. Some 23.9 percent of Americans polled from August 23 through September 16 said they strongly supported or tended to support the idea of their state breaking away, while 53.3 percent of the 8,952 respondents strongly opposed or tended to oppose the notion. The urge to sever ties with Washington cuts across party lines and regions, though Republicans and residents of rural Western

The Metropolitan Opera has sunk to a new low in its glorification of the Palestinian terrorist murder of wheelchair-bound Leon Klinghoffer, on the Achille Lauro in 1995, say outraged Jewish groups. In its promotional materials, including a video on its official website, the Metropolitan Opera features a Palestinian terrorist pointing a gun at the back of a wheel-chair bound Klinghoffer, when he is about to murder him. “The Met Opera is clearly trying to sell tickets off of an evil Palestinian terrorist who is in the process of murdering a crippled Jew in the back in cold-blood” said Mark Langfan,

Senate Declares Israel a

The U.S. Senate unanimously adopted the United States-Israel Strategic Partnership Act on Thursday evening, reports JNS. The bipartisan bill, which declares Israel to be a “major strategic partner,” was authored by Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) and had 81 co-sponsors. [Snip] Besides generally elevating the status of the U.S.-Israel relationship, the bill expands the Jewish state’s trade status to expedite export licensing, increases cooperation on energy and other technologies, maintains Israel’s qualitative military edge in the Middle East, and increases U.S. weapons stockpiles in Israel as well as Israeli access to them.

David Cameron this morning skewered Labour leader Ed Miliband with a pledge to introduce ´English votes for English laws´ after Scotland rejected independence. The Prime Minister said Scotland had had its say and it was now time to listen to the ´millions of voices of England´ by banning Scottish MPs voting on English-only laws. [Snip] Mr Miliband ducked the issue in his first response to the ´No´ referendum victory this morning--only declaring that he supported ´devolution´ in England. But Labour MPs are split on the issue, in a stand-off which threatens to derail the Government´s timetable for devolving further powers

Thanks to last night´s "No" vote in the Scottish referendum Britain has been spared the following: a run on the pound; the hasty exodus of Scotland´s finance industry; the premature death of UKIP; the gloating of Alex Salmond; a Red-Wedding-style outbreak of backstabbing and bloodletting among Tories and Labour alike; a collapse in the markets; at least two years of procedural sclerosis in the British and Scottish parliaments; the entirely unnecessary and utterly ill-considered rupture of a the greatest Union between nations the world has ever known; waking up this morning to find ourselves no longer

Scotland’s rejection of independence from Great Britain will be greeted with a huge sigh of relief in Washington, on both sides of the political aisle. [Snip] There were also major concerns in the Pentagon over the desire of Scottish Nationalists to remove Britain’s nuclear deterrent from Scottish waters. The president himself made an intervention in the Scottish debate, and dozens of Members of Congress signed on to a resolution urging Britain to remain intact. With a crisis brewing in the Middle East, and the United States fighting a war against a barbaric Islamist army in Iraq that is now stronger

Alex Salmond’s dream of independence has been shattered after Scotland voted to stay part of the United Kingdom. Scotland today rejected independence and voted to remain part of the United Kingdom at the end of the most intense political campaign the country has ever seen. The silent majority finally raised its voice on a tense yet utterly compelling night of political history. During a referendum that attracted record numbers of voters and was hailed as a triumph of democracy, the people voted to maintain the 307-year Union. A decisive No vote was the culmination of two and a half-years of

First Lady Michelle Obama proudly defended her husband’s record at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser, reminding the attendants how far the country had come since the Obamas entered the White House. “Just think about how different our country looks to children growing up today,” she said. “Think about how our kids take for granted that a black person or a woman can be President of the United States.” She also praised President Obama for changing history on gay marriage and the Supreme Court. “They take it for granted that for the first time in history, there are three brilliant women serving

After declaring war on the Tea Party and often showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Republicans to record gains in the 2010 midterm elections, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate this year because of the lack of enthusiasm for his establishment-approved candidates. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Rove notes that even though Obama´s "job approval numbers are lousy, no Democrat in a competitive Senate race polls regularly above 50%, GOP enthusiasm is high, and independents are trending Republican... each passing day provides evidence as to why a GOP Senate majority is

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds. Royce, who met this week with the foreign minister of Kurdistan, cited recent reports of young female Kurdish troops “laughing” at ISIS forces they had turned back. “These ISIL soldiers apparently believed that if

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail. “I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine General James Conway, who served as the 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps during the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the Obama administration, said at the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington, D.C. Friday, according to a source in attendance. Maverick PAC has described itself

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.” Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

The French did for President Obama on Friday what they refused to do for his predecessor — they joined the fight in Iraq. Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed. The French famously said “non” in 2003 when President Bush

(Video)Friday during the White House press briefing, National Security Advisor Susan Rice abruptly left in the middle of a question after confusing reporters with her announcement President Barack Obama was going ahead with air strikes in Syria. When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes. Reporters continued to push with several trying to explain their question is if the president has already given authorization. Laughing uncomfortably Rice exited the room
