Coast Guardsman killed after boat rammed by smugglers
A Coast Guard admiral said an officer killed Sunday when his boat was rammed by suspected smugglers near Santa Cruz Island died "protecting our nation." In a statement read by a spokesman at a news conference Sunday afternoon, Coast Guard Adm. Robert J. Papp said: "We are deeply saddened by the loss of our shipmate."

The Guard Guard released few details about the incident, but a spokesman vowed that "all individuals involved in this illegal action [will be] brought to justice."

The officer was identified as Executive Petty Officer Terrell Horne.

Horne was aboard a small Coast Guard craft and was investigating a boat that was operating without any lights, raising suspicion. The other boat was a "panga," an open-hulled boat that is "the choice of smugglers operating off the coast of California," said Coast Guard spokesman Adam Eggers.

The boat rammed the Coast Guard vessel when it approached, knocking two Coast Guard members into the water. When Horne was pulled out of the water it was determined that he had suffered a traumatic head injury and died. The other Coast Guard member had minor injuries.

An official at the Port of Hueneme told the Ventura County Star that two suspects were detained in the incident.

More:

According to sources, the incident took place early this morning, at approximately 1 a.m., when the Coast Guard intercepted two boats -- a pleasure craft and a panga boat, which is a small, fast launch -- near San Clemente Island, in Santa Barbara County.

The Coast Guard, according to initial reports, took the pleasure craft into custody and detained two occupants.

The Coast Guard cutter crew then lowered their smaller boat into the water in order to take custody of the individuals on the panga boat.

At that point the operation turned deadly.

As the Coast Guard small craft approached the panga, the driver of the panga rammed it and actually drove over the top of the boat, striking two agents and killing one of them.

Other members of the Coast Guard team took the occupants of the panga into custody, making for a total of four suspects in custody -- two from the pleasure craft and two from the panga.

Sources said that authorities believed that two additional suspects were dropped off on Santa Cruz Island just before the interception of the two boats. The Santa Barbara Sheriffs SWAT team was working with the U.S. Border Patrol today, searching Santa Cruz Island for additional suspects.

The panga was operated by Mexican nationals, and the cargo was marijuana, law enforcement sources said.

#1  We've had a boat load of incidents and arrests involving pangas in our county (San Luis Obispo) during the past year. It's like an effing invasion.

HWY 1 is very rural, but it's also heavily touristed. Could be a recipe for a minor disaster.

#2  Sorry #1, IMO the real disaster is the US perennially giving illegals PCorrect-Deniable amnesty-that-is-not-amnesty while doing nothing to seal the borders year after year, and while also not demanding they learn or become Americans - THE ONLY END RESULT CAN BE MILYUHNS AND DILYUHNS OF ILLEGAL-N-STAYING-ILLEGAL ILLEGALS IN AMERIKKA OF SUBJECTIVE OR DUBIOUS ALLEGIANCE.

ADVANTAGE = GLOBAL JIHADIS + ANTI-US GLOBALISTS + ALIGNED.

Mail carrier poisoned husband's tuna fish sandwich, tried to kill him
BARTOW, Fla. - A Central Florida mail carrier was tossed in the slammer
Keep yer hands where we can see 'em, if yez please!
on attempted murder charges after she tried to poison her husband's tuna fish sandwich, according to deputies.

Beth Dickison Richards, 37, of Lake Wales, was arrested Friday on charges of attempted first-degree murder, poisoning food with the intent to kill, possession of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, deputies were called to Richards' home Thursday night in connection with a poisoning case. Deputies said they met with Richards' husband, Gregory Lawrence Richards, and her step-sister, Jessica Jarvis.

Jarvis said Beth Richards told her earlier in the day that she tried to poison and kill Gregory Richards by crushing up multiple Trazodone pills and placing them in a tuna fish sandwich.

Jarvis said she she immediately contacted Gregory Richards' family to verify his well-being, according to deputies.

Gregory Richards told deputies he had eaten part of the sandwich earlier in the day and felt nauseous. He was taken to Lake Wales Medical Center, where he was treated for nausea and dizziness.

According to the National Institutes of Health, Trazodone is used to treat depression and increases the amount of serotonin, a natural substance in the brain that helps maintain mental balance.

Anyone remember when mail carriers were usually highly respected WWII veterans who wore nice starched uniforms, a smart looking hat, coached Little League teams, cooked pancakes at the American Legion, and marched in parades?

Gaddafi opponent to be buried 19 years after body found
[Al Ahram] Mansour al-Kikhia, a staunch Libyan opponent of the ousted Qadaffy regime whose body was found in a morgue 19 years after his disappearance, will be buried on Monday, his brother said.

Kikhia will be buried in his native city of Benghazi, said Mahmud al-Kikhia, after his body was found in mid-October in a villa that once served as an intelligence headquarters of slain strongman Moamer Qadaffy. Kikhia was "kidnapped in Cairo in 1993 by the former regime," and his body was discovered in a morgue inside the villa in Tripoli
...a confusing city, one end of thich is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
in mid-October, he said.

Mahmud added that DNA analysis of Kikhia's body matched those of his brothers and sons, and that ex-Qadaffy intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi, who is currently imprisoned by the country's new authorities, acknowledged the dissident's abduction and indicated the location of the body.

Libya's new rulers were, meanwhile, on Sunday organising a funeral ceremony to pay tribute to Kikhia, the foreign ministry in Tripoli said.

"The tyrannical regime (of Qadaffy) kidnapped the dissident Mansour Rashid al-Kikhia, killed him, hid his body and did not bury it, proving that it was more afraid of him dead than alive," a statement said.
Libyan authorities announced the discovery of the body last week.

Kikhia was a former foreign minister under Qadaffy and previously an ambassador posted to Gay Paree, Algeria and the United Nations
...where theory meets practice and practice loses...
but in 1980 he joined opposition ranks against the former dictator.
During the 1990s, Qadaffy launched a campaign to kill opponents in various Arab and western countries qualifying his detractors as "stray dogs."

Mahmud al-Kikhia said there were traces of stab wounds on the chest of his brother and that a medical report will be prepared to explain the causes of death.

Mohammed al-Mufti, Kikhia's brother-in-law, who helped identify the body, said that Kikhia was imprisoned for four years before his death.

#1  ...Qadaffy had a thing about the mortal remains of his enemies - he held onto the remains of one of the F-111 crews killed during Eldorado Canyon, there are disturbing signs he dug up and desecrated the bodies of the crew of US ketch Intrepid (lost in Tripoli harbor in 1803, IIRC)and it's known he was searching for the bodies of the crew of the Lady Be Good, a B-24 bomber lost in Libya in WWII.

There was a LOT of crazy behind them sprockets.

Protests in Tunisian town show anger at Islamist government
[Al Ahram] In a remote town in Tunisia's interior, protesters angry over joblessness and harsh police tactics call for the downfall of new Islamist rulers, echoing the revolt that ignited the Arab Spring two years ago.
Siliana, 140 kilometres (90 miles) from the coastal capital, has been convulsed as thousands of largely unemployed youth battle riot police firing tear gas and birdshot.

"I lost my eye because of the police; this is what Ennahda has done," says Anis Omrani, 24, referring to the Islamist party that won the North African country's first free elections last year after the overthrow of dictator Zine Al-Abidine Ben Ali.

"We don't have jobs and we're marginalised, but they attack us savagely ... The police of Ennahda just add another problem," Omrani says, with a patch over one eye.

Of at least 252 maimed, medical sources say 17 have been blinded through police use of birdshot, and UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay condemned the government Friday for what she called excessive violence.

"You may have taken away our eyes but you can't take away our voice!" reads a slogan daubed in red paint on a wall.

"The people want another revolution!" and "Ennahda, go away! Game over!" say others.

The revolutionary graffiti recall Sidi Bouzid, the deprived town to the south where a street peddler burned himself to death two years ago in despair at the confiscation of his fruit cart.

His suicide provided the spark for an uprising in Tunisia that spread to Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Syria and Bahrain.

Aware of comparisons between Siliana and Sidi Bouzid, the government temporarily removed the local governor Saturday and promised jobs to victims of the 2010 uprising. Police stopped using birdshot.

"Siliana will be the second Sidi Bouzid; we're going to get rid of these Islamists who know nothing of Islam," Omrani said.

Ennahda was late to respond to the protests, after first accusing leftists who lost last year's elections of fomenting unrest by provoking Tunisians in impoverished areas into confrontations that would drive away foreign investors.

The protests began on Tuesday after a call by the leftist labour union UGTT to take to the streets to demand jobs, investment and the removal of Ennahda's Islamist governor.

Africa Subsaharan
Burkina Faso votes in test for Compaore regime
[Daily Nation (Kenya)] Voters in Burkina Faso
...The country in west Africa that they put where Upper Volta used to be. Its capital is Oogadooga, or something like that. Its president is currently Blaise Compaoré, who took office in 1987 and may be in the process of being chased out now...
went to the polls on Sunday in legislative and municipal elections seen as a test for the regime of President Blaise Compaore which was almost toppled in a wave of violence 18 months ago.

Faced with a still divided opposition in one of the world's poorest countries, Compaore's powerful Congress for Democracy and Progress (CDP) party remains the big favourite despite internal tensions.

Sunday's elections are the first since a deep crisis erupted in early 2011, when a wave of mutinies and violent popular protests almost toppled the administration of Compaore, who has been in power since a 1987 military coup.

Shia minority scores big win in Kuwaiti polls
Kuwait's Shia minority has won for the first time more than a third of the 50 parliamentary seats in polls boycotted by the opposition which declared the new assembly "illegitimate" due to poor voter turnout, Aljazeera reported.

According to official results released on Sunday, the Shias - who form around 30 per cent of Kuwait's native population of 1.2 million - won 17 seats compared with seven they won in the scrapped 2012 parliament and nine in the 2009 house. Three women were elected to the new parliament compared to four in 2009, according to figures released by the National Election Commission.

The new house includes as many as 30 new faces as leading members of the opposition stayed away from the polls. Sunni Islamists were reduced to a small minority of four MPs compared with as many as 23 in the house elected in February.

Hospital in Central Brooklyn Plans to Declare Bankruptcy
[NY Times] A financially troubled hospital serving a largely African-American and Caribbean niche of central Brooklyn is planning to declare bankruptcy this week, hospital officials said on Sunday, raising concerns that New York State may force it to close or merge with another facility.
Connect with NYTMetro

The hospital, Interfaith Medical Center, serving Bedford-Stuyvesant and Crown Heights, has been in and out of financial trouble for decades, with its survival assured only by infusions of state aid.

However, in difficult economic times, the Cuomo administration has not indicated a willingness to continue bailing out failing hospitals.

India-Pakistan
Indian navy prepared to deploy to South China Sea to protect oil interests
The Indian navy is prepared to deploy vessels to the South China Sea to protect India's oil interests there, the navy chief said on Monday amid growing international fears over the potential for naval clashes in the disputed region.

India has sparred diplomatically with China in the past over its gas and oil exploration block off the coast of Vietnam. China claims virtually the entire mineral-rich South China Sea and has stepped up its military presence there. Other nations such as Vietnam, Philippines and Malaysia have competing claims.

Indian state-run explorer Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC) has a stake in a gas field in the Nam Con Son basin, off Vietnam's south coast.

Indian Navy Chief Admiral D.K Joshi said while India was not a claimant in the dispute over territorial rights in the South China Sea, it was prepared to act, if necessary, to protect its maritime and economic interests in the region.

"When the requirement is there, for example, in situations where our country's interests are involved, for example ONGC ... we will be required to go there and we are prepared for that," Joshi told a news conference.

"Now, are we preparing for it? Are we having exercises of that nature? The short answer is yes," he said.

With China throwing their weight around, Japan's choices are either roll over or push back. That the US has pulled back only makes conflict more likely.
