Florida woman drives car into tree after telling four kids to remove seat belts: ‘The devil can’t hurt you’

A Florida woman, who accused her husband of placing a “hex” on her, was arrested Wednesday for attempted murder after police say she told her four young children to remove their seat belts before she intentionally crashed her car into a tree — allegedly in a twisted bid to save them from the “devil.”

Calicia Williams, 36, was charged with four counts of attempted murder after investigators say she drove her white Pontiac minivan at a “high rate of speed” onto a grass median and directly into tree, without braking.

Once on the scene, police found four young children, ages 7 to 13, inside the car wearing no seatbelts. Williams was said to be “making spontaneous utterances” and appeared to be “extremely agitated” when being interviewed by authorities.

According to a police affidavit, she stated that her “husband put a hex on her and caused her to crash.” The responding officer said she kept “rambling on about spells and voodoo.”

Witnesses also told investigators that Williams advised the children to take off their seatbelts before stretching out her hands and saying, “The devil can’t hurt you, he only hurts bad people. You have the light of Jesus in you and only Jesus can cure us.”

Investigators on the scene observed evidence that indicated that Williams did not attempt to brake before crashing into the tree. It also appeared that she directly targeted the passenger side of the vehicle on impact.

Williams also had burns to her neck that indicated she was wearing a seat belt — unlike her children.

The children and suspect were taken to the hospital but their condition was unknown. Williams will be held without bond following treatment.

Diahann Carroll, pioneering actress known for ‘Julia’ and ‘Dynasty,’ dead at 84

Westlake Legal Group diahann-carroll-ap Diahann Carroll, pioneering actress known for 'Julia' and 'Dynasty,' dead at 84 fox-news/entertainment/tv fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/events/departed fnc/entertainment fnc be3dfc9c-0f8d-5aa3-a114-d325556cc596 Associated Press article

Diahann Carroll, the Oscar-nominated actress and singer who won critical acclaim as the first black woman to star in a non-servant role in a TV series as “Julia,” has died. She was 84.

Carroll’s daughter, Susan Kay, told The Associated Press her mother died Friday in Los Angeles of cancer.

During her long career, Carroll earned a Tony Award for the musical “No Strings” and an Academy Award nomination for “Claudine.”

But she was perhaps best known for her pioneering work on “Julia.” Carroll played Julia Baker, a nurse whose husband had been killed in Vietnam, in the groundbreaking situation comedy that aired from 1968 to 1971.

Although she was not the first black woman to star in her own TV show (Ethel Waters played a maid in the 1950s series “Beulah”), she was the first to star as someone other than a servant.

NBC executives were wary about putting “Julia” on the network during the racial unrest of the 1960s, but it was an immediate hit.

It had its critics, though, including some who said Carroll’s character, who is the mother of a young son, was not a realistic portrayal of a black American woman in the 1960s.

“They said it was a fantasy,” Carroll recalled in 1998. “All of this was untrue. Much about the character of Julia I took from my own life, my family.”

Not shy when it came to confronting racial barriers, Carroll won her Tony portraying a high-fashion American model in Paris who has a love affair with a white American author in the 1959 Richard Rodgers musical “No Strings.” Critic Walter Kerr described her as “a girl with a sweet smile, brilliant dark eyes and a profile regal enough to belong on a coin.”

Justin Bieber, PETA in cat fight: ‘PETA can suck it’

“Baby, baby, baby, nooooooo,” said PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange about Justin Bieber spending $35,000 on two part-exotic kittens, Sushi and Tuna.

The singer, 25, reportedly spent $20,000 on one kitten (Sushi) and $15,000 on the other (Tuna).

Sushi and Tuna are part-domestic cat and part-African Serval and were purchased from the Illinois-based breeder Select Exotics, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Having learned this, PETA expressed their disappointment to People.

“Justin Bieber could inspire his fans around the world to save a life by adopting a cat from a local animal shelter — rather than fueling the dangerous demand for hybrid cats, contributing to the animal overpopulation crisis, and proving that when it comes to helping animals, his stance so far is ‘I don’t care,'” said Lange.

“PETA go focus on real problems. Like poaching, and animal brutality. Ur tripping because I want a specific kind of cat? U weren’t tripping when I got my dog Oscar and he wasn’t a rescue…every pet we get must be a rescue? I believe in adopting rescues but I also think there are preferences and that’s what breeders are for,” the “U Smile” singer proceeded to write on his Instagram story.

Andy McCarthy calls out Dems’ ‘Kabuki theater’: There are no subpoenas and no impeachment inquiry

House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump is all but “Kabuki theater at this point,’ former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andy McCarthy said Friday.

Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with host Bill Hemmer, McCarthy argued that the way the media is reporting on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s probe is “simply inaccurate about what’s going on.”

“For example, this whole idea that there is an impeachment inquiry: there’s not. The idea that there are subpoenas: there aren’t. And, I think a lot of people are consuming it as if it were true on face value and I really think if I were the White House what I would be worried about is breaking through that,” McCarthy told Hemmer.

(AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

In an op-ed in The Hill, McCarthy wrote that congressional Democrats, to the contrary, are instead conducting the 2020 political campaign: “Democrats are mulishly determined to ram through an article of impeachment or two, regardless of whether the State Department and other agencies cooperate in the farce. Their base wants the scarlet-letter ‘I’ (impeachment) attached to Trump. The party hopes to rally the troops for the 2020 campaign against Trump…If Democrats truly thought they had a case, they wouldn’t be in such a rush—they’d want everyone to have time to study it. But they don’t have a case, so instead they’re giving us a show.”

House Democrats launched a formal impeachment inquiry into the president after a whistleblower complaint suggested the president, during a July phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart, tried to induce officials there to investigate Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and their business dealings in that country.

“The question here is, was there a corrupt quid pro quo?” the Fox News contributor asked.

MSNBC SIGNS DAUGHTER OF DEM SEN. BOB MENENDEZ AS WEEKEND ANCHOR

On Thursday, the Trump administration confirmed with Fox News that they will send Pelosi a letter “daring” her to hold a vote on the impeachment inquiry.

The letter will say that the White House won’t comply with the Democrats’ investigation because Pelosi hasn’t codified the probe with a formal vote on the House floor. The letter will mirror the tone of a letter House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., sent to the speaker on Thursday.

“I think it’s the right thing for him to do,” Andy McCarthy said. “The Constitution reposes the power to impeach solely in the House. Not in the Speaker of the House, the House.”

McCarthy said it would actually benefit the House if it wanted to go into court and try to enforce any information demands: “The first thing a court’s going to want to know is, ‘Has the House voted to have an impeachment inquiry?’ And, a lot hinges on that, including how much expansion a court would give a president’s claim of executive privilege and privilege over matters that are in the president’s duties under Article II.

CLICK HERE FOR THE ALL-NEW FOXBUSINESS.COM

“If they really have grounds to seek the president’s impeachment, they not only should have a vote because it’s in their interests when they go to court to have a vote, they should be proud to have a vote,” McCarthy added.

He concluded: “If [House Democrats] really think they have grounds to remove the President of the United States from power, then the House should speak as one as an institution and vote that way.”

Fox News’ Chad Pergram and Andrew O’Reilly contributed to this report.

Upcoming NBC political drama enlists CNN reporter Dana Bash for expertise: report

Was NBC News political director Chuck Todd not available?

NBC’s upcoming political drama set in Washington D.C. has enlisted CNN political correspondent Dana Bash to serve as a consulting producer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show, which will be called “The Hill,” billed as a “high-stakes character drama that lives at the intersection of media and Capitol Hill, where everything is transacted: information, love, sex, fame and power,” according to THR.

RONAN FARROW’S TEAM ‘CONFIDENT IN THE FACTS’ IN NEW #METOO BOOK, DISMISSES LEGAL THREAT FROM EX-NATIONAL ENQUIRER EDITOR

“It will focus on the gifted, flawed and fascinating people who call that world home,” THR’s Rick Porter wrote.

While it may seem odd that an NBC program would require a CNN political consultant, when NBC News employs dozens of political reporters itself, the show is actually being created by Sony Pictures TV.

NBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“Hawaii Five-0” and “Scorpion” writer Paul Grellong will work on the project, along with Bash and a group of other TV industry veterans including a former “Larry King Live” executive producer, according to the report.

Bash is CNN’s chief political correspondent, covering all things Trump along with the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate for the liberal network. She plays a major role in CNN’s election coverage and was a White House correspondent during the George W. Bush’s administration.

Bash also appeared in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and Netflix political drama “House of Cards.”

Washington state teen’s cold case murder cracked after nearly three decades

The cold case rape and murder of a popular Washington state teenager has finally been solved after nearly three decades, authorities said.

Sara Yarborough, 16, was supposed to board a bus with her Federal Way High School drill team in December 1991. She never did.

Teens found her body after they saw a man emerge from bushes behind the high school. She had been strangled with her own nylons, according to reports.

CALIFORNIA COLD-CASE VICTIM FOUND IN 1996 NOW HAS A ‘FACE’ THANKS TO RECONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY

Authorities now say Patrick Nicholas, 55, was linked to the crime after cops tested a discarded cigarette butt outside a dry-cleaning business in Kent on Sunday, the Seattle Times reported. DNA from the butt matched evidence recovered from Yarborough’s body.

A forensic genealogist identified Nicholas as a potential suspect after uploading the crime scene DNA to a genealogy website to create a family tree.

“Few things are more satisfying in law enforcement than being able to tell a victim’s family that a suspect has been caught,” King County Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht said Thursday in announcing Nicholas’ arrest for Sara’s murder, according to Q13 Fox. “Last night, deputies were able to tell Sarah Yarborough’s family that.”

LOUISIANA POLICE MAKE ARREST IN 25-YEAR-OLD COLD CASE OF INFANT FOUND FROZEN BEHIND CAR WASH

“They had never given up,” said Laura Yarborough, Sara’s mother, according to the station. “Even when I had given up, they didn’t. I guess it’s a warning, if you do something heinous here, they’ll come to get you.”

She said she wondered if her daughter’s killer was still alive.

“But the detectives were extremely dogged and kept going even when I was ready to throw in the towel,” she said.

The case went cold even with witnesses, 4,000 tips and the killer’s DNA profile.

Last year a Virginia lab used DNA from the crime scene to create composite sketches of Sara’s killer as an older person.

According to the Times, Nicholas was released from prison in an attempted rape case four years before Sara’s murder and was arrested in a 1994 child molestation case that resulted in an assault conviction.

A prosecutor said in court papers that for the past several years Nicholas had been living in a dilapidated building on a large piece of property with few community ties, according to the paper.

The prosecutor was quoted as saying that Nicholas’ crime was “one of opportunity and extreme violence.”

Taylor Swift’s mom shares video of singer hilariously crying over a banana after eye surgery

Taylor Swift was caught off guard during an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” Thursday night.

The Grammy-winner, 29, was chatting with host Jimmy Fallon when he revealed her mother, Andrea Swift, had sent him a secret video of the singer recovering from her recent LASIK eye surgery.

Swift admitted she was on “some pretty hardcore pills after [having] a laser in your eye” and was embarrassed about what could potentially be on the video.

TAYLOR SWIFT SPEAKS OUT ON ‘LOVER,’ SCOOTER BRAUN, STALKERS, SEXISM AND MORE ON ‘CBS SUNDAY MORNING’

“Your mom may or may not have videotaped you after surgery and she gave us the video!” Fallon said before rolling the hilarious clip.

In the home video, the “Lover” singer is in her kitchen after the procedure with protective goggles on, trying to tear a banana from the stem. But after she successfully tears it off, Swift realizes she actually wanted the other banana and had picked the wrong one.

“That wasn’t the one I wanted!” she moans.

“I tried to get this one,” Swift explained to her mom. “What do we do with this one now?”

TAYLOR SWIFT SAYS SHE’S ‘OBSESSED’ WITH LEARNING MORE ABOUT POLITICS, NEW MUSIC IS POLITICALLY FOCUSED

She was worried about the rejected banana because it “doesn’t have a head.” The dilemma made the singer start to cry but her mother was there to comfort her. The video then continued in Swift’s bedroom where her mom warned her “don’t fall asleep eating the banana.”

“I’m not asleep, my mind is alive!” the entertainer announced.

After watching the clip, Swift joked, “She was kind enough to drive me there but cruel enough to film it and give it to you!”

Swift is performing on “Saturday Night Live” this week. Emmy-winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge is hosting for the first time.

Supreme Court agrees to review Louisiana abortion case

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6080556646001_6080554347001-vs Supreme Court agrees to review Louisiana abortion case Shannon Bream fox-news/politics/judiciary/supreme-court fox news fnc/politics fnc f8fe7898-840b-5c39-8a10-1c85ea05f8af Bill Mears article

The Supreme Court agreed Friday to hear a challenge to a controversial Louisiana abortion law, with a decision on the politically and socially charged issue expected in the middle of a presidential election year.

At issue is a state statute requiring doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. A federal appeals court had upheld the law, despite an almost identical statute from Texas that was declared unconstitutional by the justices in 2016.

CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS SAYS SUPREME COURT NONPARTISAN

The high court in February blocked enforcement of the law, while further legal appeals were being filed. Chief Justice John Roberts sided with his more liberal colleagues at the time.

Abortion rights supporters say Act 620 is too restrictive, and places an “undue burden” on a woman’s access to the medical procedure. They say it would leave the state with just one abortion clinic. Backers of the law say it is a reasonable regulation, with claims by state officials that “Louisiana abortion clinics have a history of serious health and safety problems.”

The high court will now set a briefing schedule, with oral arguments early next year and a ruling expected by June 2020.

Louisiana is one of several states enacting recent abortion restrictions. The state — along with Kentucky, Ohio, Missouri Mississippi, North Dakota and Iowa — have passed measures that would prohibit abortions after six to eight weeks of pregnancy. Utah and Arkansas legislators voted to limit the procedure to the middle of the second trimester. Georgia has a near-total ban. Facing legal challenges, none of the laws have yet taken effect.

The Supreme Court justices, however, took no action on a separate appeal in regard to an abortion regulation from Indiana. That Republican-backed statute, signed into law by then-Gov. Mike Pence, requires women to undergo an ultrasound at least 18 hours before having an abortion — a requirement critics call medically unnecessary.

The high court is expected to decide in coming weeks whether to put the Indiana case on its argument docket. A federal appeals court struck the measure down, saying it would create additional financial and travel burdens on pregnant women.

“It was more so in my lower stomach and it was really red and hot,” Praise, who told JamPress that she called her gynecologist to schedule a follow-up appointment, said.

“It felt like I was on fire almost. My mom had a C-section before and she knew it wasn’t normal,” she explained.

Praise said that when she felt down near her incision, she felt blisters across her abdomen, which caused her to panic. She said she rushed to the doctor’s office and while they offered to drain the blisters, she knew she needed to get to a hospital.

“There was so much pus and dead flesh oozing out of me,” Praise told the news outlet. “I was shocked.”

Post-C-section infections are typically caused by a bacterial infection in the incision site. Common symptoms include fever, wound sensitivity, redness and swelling at the site, push discharged from the incision site, painful urination, foul-smelling discharge, bleeding that contains large clots, leg pain or swelling as well as severe lower abdominal pain, according to HealthLine.com.

Risk factors for infection include obesity, diabetes or an immunosuppressive disorder, chorioamnionitis, long-term steroid use, previous C-section deliveries, poor prenatal care, lack of cautionary antibiotics, a long labor or surgery and excessive blood loss during labor and delivery.

Praise told JamPress that she was diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis, also known as flesh-eating bacteria, and underwent life-saving surgery to stop it from spreading further. She said she spent two weeks fighting for her life, during which she could not see her son.

“I was so sad,” she said, of her time away from her infant. “The first time you’re ever having a baby it’s supposed to be this really happy exciting time, then all of a sudden everything around that is sad and scary.”

The woman revealed that she has not yet completely recovered from the ordeal, but that she continues to heal and was happy to be reunited with her baby.

Praise said her ordeal should serve as a message to other new moms to speak up when they feel ill or need help.

“Had I waited a day later I could have died, it was eating at my insides,” she told JamPress.
