    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- U.S. prosecutors filed a criminal charge Wednesday against the CEO of Bumble Bee Foods as part of an ongoing investigation into price fixing in the packaged seafood industry. A grand jury in San Francisco indicted Christopher Lischewski on one count of price fixing, alleging that from November 2010 to December 2013 he conspired with others in the industry to eliminate competition by setting prices for canned tuna. Three other people, including a former StarKist tuna company executive, have previously been charged. Stephen Hodge, a former senior vice president for sales at StarKist, pleaded guilty last year...

    Rep. Charlie Dent (Pa.), a frequent critic of President Trump and a leader of the GOP’s moderate bloc in the House, said Tuesday that he will resign from Congress within weeks. His decision could set up a costly special election if the Democratic governor of Pennsylvania orders one. Dent had already announced his retirement from Congress in September, citing personal reasons for the decision while also lamenting the marginalization of the “governing wing” of the Republican Party as the GOP has moved further to the right. He said in a statement released Tuesday morning that he will leave “in the...

    The agonising case of Charlie Gard, the 11-month old baby dying from a rare form of mitochondrial disease, is edging towards a no less agonising conclusion. Today, his parents agreed that he should be transferred from Great Ormond Street hospital in London (GOSH) to a hospice to spend there his final period of life. The hospice was a compromise. The parents have been fighting the plan for their baby’s end of life care just as they had fought the decision that he should no longer be kept alive. They wanted to bring Charlie home to die. The hospital refused to...

    The parents of terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard have ended their legal challenge to take him to the US for experimental treatment. A lawyer representing Chris Gard and Connie Yates told the High Court that "time had run out" for the baby. Grant Armstrong said Charlie's parents had made the decision because an American doctor said it was too late to give him nucleoside therapy. "The parents worst nightmare have been confirmed", Mr Armstrong said. He told the presiding judge Mr Justice Francis that US neurologist Dr Michio Hirano had said he was no longer willing to offer the baby experimental...

    The parents of terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard have walked out of a High Court hearing to decide if he should undergo treatment. Charlie's father Chris Gard stood up and said: "I thought this was supposed to be independent," as the couple left the courtroom about two hours into today's hearing. Mr Gard and his partner Connie Yates are arguing they should be allowed to take give experimental treatment to their 11-month-old for a severe degenerative genetic disorder. Specialists at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in London, where Charlie is being cared for, say that Charlie has already suffered catastrophic brain...

    The liberal media have refused cover the story of terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard in Britain and his parents’ fight in European courts to bring him to the United States for medical treatment. However, after President Trump tweeted out his support for the family on Monday, MSNBC finally found time to cover the topic – if only so their reporter could cynically accuse Trump of “exploiting” the situation. Minutes after the President posted his statement to social media in the 10 a.m. ET hour, anchor Hallie Jackson informed viewers: “...you may have seen a couple minutes ago President Trump is back...

    The aunt of drowned Syrian refugee boy Alan Kurdi says a controversial new cartoon from French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is "disgusting." "I hope people respect our family's pain. It's a big loss to us. We're not the same anymore after this tragedy. We're trying to forget a little bit and move on with our life. But to hurt us again, it's not fair," said Tima Kurdi from her home in Port Coquitlam, B.C. The cartoon suggests that Alan Kurdi, had he grown up, would have been like the sexual attackers in Cologne, Germany, on New Year's Eve.

    I am a proud American who believes that America has held – and still holds – a very sensitive and special place in the affairs of mankind on Planet Earth. I believe that America has been divinely blessed and protected in our two centuries plus of existence. I believe that America has been a counter balance that has cancelled out a lot of tyranny, evil and conquest and, admittedly, we have made a lot of mistakes, but on balance we have exerted a certain Pax Americana in the international affairs of mankind. It took a lot of old fashioned guts...

    “The pair reportedly asked train passengers if they were Muslim, telling them to clear out quickly if this were the case to be spared.” “During the court hearing, Taoufik also claimed his actions were sparked after another passenger made a racist remark to him.” Oh, that makes it all OK, doesn’t it? These men didn’t have to have any actual bombs. Their monstrous “joke” did well enough to “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah” (Quran 8:60). “Two men jailed after ‘Charlie Hebdo 2’ scare,” The Local, August 25, 2015 (thanks to TheReligionofPeace.com): Two men have been...

    A US operation has killed the senior al-Qaida figure who issued the claim of responsibility for the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris, according to US sources familiar with the matter and a reported video posted by the group. Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) said that its ideologue Nasser bin Ali al-Ansi was killed with his eldest son and other fighters in Yemen in a US air strike, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which cited the online video. Reuters could not independently verify the video. Ansi's death would suggest the covert US drone program against the Yemen branch of...

    When witnesses in the same building as Charlie Hebdo saw masked men with heavy weaponry enter the building they called police, like anyone in their position would do. But the three unarmed officers on bikes who showed up proved to be most unhelpful in the situation. According to the witness, the officers had to retreat after seeing the men were heavily armed. That wasn’t the only instance during the three-day terror spree where police found themselves utterly unprepared to take on the jihadists. The 27-year-old policewoman who was gunned down just south of Paris while attending a traffic accident was...

    Once again the mainstream media peddled the spoon-fed propaganda that world leaders "led the march" to honor the victims of the Paris shootings last week. Glorious photo-ops of Merkel, Hollande, Poroshenko, David Cameron (oh, and not Barack Obama) were smeared across front pages hailing the "unity in outrage." However, as appears to be the case in so many 'events' in the new normal managed thinking in which we live, The Independent reports, French TV has exposed the reality of the 'photo-op' seen-around-the-world: the 'dignitaries' were not in fact "at" the Paris rallies but had the photo taken on an empty...

    It all started when a University alumnus made a $3 million dollar donation to fund the position of Director of Islamic Studies at Duke University. Bettye Martin Musham, who gifted the Islamic Studies Center with the vast sum of money, said that she was convinced that it was the right thing to do after hearing a lecture on the meaning of jihad. Musham said that she and her husband would later become “hooked with the importance of Islam.” Dr. Omid Safi was appointed to run Islamic Studies at Duke University in July of 2014. He has been the point of...

    On Sunday, at the great Paris rally, the whole world was Charlie. By Tuesday, the veneer of solidarity was exposed as tissue thin. It began dissolving as soon as the real, remaining Charlie Hebdo put out its post-massacre issue featuring a Muhammad cover that, as the New York Times put it, “reignited the debate pitting free speech against religious sensitivities.” Again? Already? Had not 4 million marchers and 44 foreign leaders just turned out on the streets of France to declare “No” to intimidation, and pledging solidarity, indeed identification (“Je suis Charlie”) with a satirical weekly specializing in the most...

    Qadhafi liked to surround himself with women (whereas Erdogan seems to prefer the opposite, ordering the fairer sex “know their place” and stay at home); and third, Erdogan’s multi-billion dollar embezzlement schemes make the madman of Libya seem, well, a bit modest and unambitious. ... Perhaps no leader was more hypocritical than Erdogan to send a representative, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, to show up in Paris and march in solidarity against the terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo. Here’s why: 1.No sooner did Davutoglu return home, than Erdogan's Brownshirts raided newspapers planning to reprint the Charlie Hebdo issue and blocked websites...

    The French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo will publish a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed along with the words "All is forgiven" Wednesday on the cover of its first issue since Islamist militants killed 12 people at its central Paris offices. In a further show of defiance, the fearless magazine announced it would print three million copies – not the usual 60,000 – when it reappears on newsstands on Wednesday. It will also be translated into six languages including English, Arabic and Turkish, editor-in-chief Gérard Biard told a Paris news conference Tuesday.
