Florida father wrongfully convicted, jailed 20 years for killing children, baby-sitter admitted to murder

At daybreak on Oct. 25, 1967, Annie Mae Richardson, of Arcadia, Fla., got up to prepare the day's meals for her husband and seven children. Lunch was rice and beans for the kids and fried chicken for herself and her husband, James.

The couple would brown bag it to work, which was picking oranges. The children were to eat at home under the supervision of a babysitter, Bessie Reese.

That mundane morning routine was the start of a 20-year nightmare for James Richardson, the harrowing journey of a poor black man through the justice system of the 1960s South.

By 6:45 a.m., Annie and James were out of the house, heading for the corner where a work truck would pick them up. The older children — Betty, 8, Alice, 7, and Susie, 6 — headed off to school. Four younger kids — Dorreen, 5, Vanessa, 4, Dianne, 3, and James Jr., 2 — stayed with Reese.

That afternoon, a supervisor came to find the Richardsons as they were picking fruit. He told them that one of their children was ill and offered to drive them to the hospital.

Aslam had employed Barek, Taher and the five injured to harvest paddy with him on his land, Singair Police Station Officer-in-Charge Ali Imam told The Daily Star.

They were sitting by the cropland taking a break due to rains when they were struck by lightning around 1:30pm, he said, adding that Barek and Taher died on the spot.

Clapper makes racist comment in interview: Russians are "genetically driven" to deceive

The man who committed perjury is now showing his racism towards Russian people

In an interview with Chuck Todd from Meet the Press, James Clapper opened up about his ability to spot a Russian spy in Jared Kushner, and his belief that Russians are "genetically driven" to cause mischief and deception.

All of this is coming from the man who lied to Congress when asked if his Intelligence apparatus illegally gathers information on millions of American's.

Edward Snowden blew apart Clapper's testimony and exposed that the Former Director of National Intelligence had perjured himself.

Israel Approves Jurisdiction Over New Community for Amona Evacuees

JNS.org – Israel’s Civil Administration and Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) approved jurisdiction over land designated for the construction of a new community for the evicted residents of Amona, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Sunday.
The approval is the first indication that the Israeli government intends to follow through with its promise to build a new community in the West Bank for the former residents of Amona, a settlement outpost housing 42 Israeli families that Israel razed in February due to Palestinian land ownership claims.
As a precursor to their new permanent community, residents will need to obtain a special injunction from the IDF’s GOC Central Command. The permit applies to jurisdiction over state land in the Shiloh Valley.
“Unfortunately, it is still too early to be happy,” Avichai Buaron, leader of the Amona community, told Yedioth Ahronoth. “This decision is but another stage in a long and tedious bureaucratic planning process that could take many years. We repeat: Only a GOC Central Command injunction for the establishment of a temporary residential site can take us out of our desperation.”
“We are calling on the prime minister to honor himself and us and allow us to establish a new community as he promised,” Buaron added. “According to the agreement, the construction…was supposed to begin by the end of March. Two months after that deadline, there is no start in sight.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had said in late March, “I had promised from the start that I would create a new settlement [for Amona’s evacuees]. It seems to me that I made that commitment in December and I will keep it today.” The settlement would be the first newly-constructed community to be built by Israel in the West Bank in 25 years.

Jewish Voice for Peace’s Hidden Agenda

A Jewish Voice for Peace demonstration. Photo: Twitter.When starting a political movement, choosing the right name is perhaps the most important step. We tend to make snap decisions about whether or not to support an organization based on what its name implies. The danger, of course, is that an organization can misrepresent itself with false connotations.
Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) has done just that, because the group does not represent the views of most Jews — and it does not stand for peace.
While their name may sound innocent and upstanding, JVP seeks to delegitimize and demonize the State of Israel through the use of double standards and false allegations. JVP is also an avid supporter of the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) movement, which attempts to harm, isolate and weaken Israel — the only Jewish state in the world, and the only democracy in the Middle East.
A more accurate name for the group would be Jewish Voice for Palestine — because it seems that JVP truly opposes the existence of a Jewish homeland. This year, the group even went so far as to invite Rasmea Odeh as the guest of honor at their National Membership Meeting. Odeh is a convicted terrorist who murdered two Israeli college students in 1969 by planting a bomb in a supermarket in Jerusalem. An organization that supports terrorists cannot claim that they also support peace.
Still, JVP has been successfully hiding its sinister actions behind its peaceful-sounding name. Ohio State University’s Jewish LGBTQ group, B’nai Keshet, actually co-sponsored an event with them — a Purim drag show to raise money for LGBTQ refugees. While this event promoted a good cause, partnering with JVP under any circumstances signals that JVP’s mission of undermining Israel is acceptable and tolerated on the Ohio State campus.
On the positive side, a BDS effort recently failed at Ohio State — showing that the student body did not fall for JVP’s lies and false rumors about Israel.
Ohio State’s Hillel also cut ties with B’nai Keshet after the Purim event. This was the correct decision. While I support the majority of B’nai Keshet’s work in helping Jewish LGTBQ students, and creating a more welcoming culture on campus, I cannot believe that they would overlook such enormous flaws in an organization such as JVP.
Building support for members of the LGBTQ community cannot come from shifting hatred towards Israel. Indeed, justice for one group can never come at expense of another, and an organization that attempts to do just that should not be allowed to have the word “peace” included as a part of its name. It is time to call JVP out on its actions, and to withdraw support from this hateful organization.

Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid said Monday that the entire Israeli security establishment is deeply concerned by US President Donald Trump’s massive arms deal with Saudi Arabia, and that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed Israel’s national security because he neither prevented nor tried to minimize the damage of the accord.
The approximately $110 billion weapons deal is the largest in American history and includes advanced air defense systems, ships, helicopters, intelligence-gathering aircraft, tanks, artillery and cybersecurity systems, according to the US State Department.

Student films gigantic lightning bolt within metres of him in Mutley, UK

This is the terrifying moment a gigantic bolt of lightning came within metres of striking a student and his friends who had gone outside to film a storm on Snapchat.

Footage shows lightning which sounds like a gunshot hitting a house, missing Alex Sawyer, 23, and his friends by 20 metres.

The University of Plymouth student captured the moment in Mutley, Devon, on his mobile phone and described it like 'fire raining down from the sky'.

After emergency services had left the scene Alex went back inside to continue writing his dissertation.

He said: 'My friends and I were all watching the lightning and I thought, "This will make a great Snapchat".
