Ninni Laaksonen, a former Miss Finland in the Miss Universe competition that Trump once owned, alleged that he ‘grabbed my butt’ during a photo shoot
A former beauty queen has become the 12th woman to openly accuse Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump of sexual assault.
Ninni Laaksonen, a former Miss Finland in the Miss Universe competition that Trump once owned, alleged in an interview with the Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat that Trump groped her before an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 2006.
“Before the show we were photographed outside the building,” Laaksonen said, according to a translation provided by The Telegraph. “Trump stood right next to me and suddenly he squeezed my butt. He really grabbed my butt.
When you watch this video of Crooked Hillary’s speech from yesterday here in Florida, you will see some amazing things. First, you will see a background section that is in 2-D and not 3-D, like a projected image on a wall would look. Secondly, you see when anyone steps in front of that background, there appears a darkened halo around them. Why would that be? Well, that happens in what we call green screen technology, and in this case, poorly done green screen.

A detailed report by a United Nations group has harshly condemned the many forms of structural racism black Americans face in the United States, and called for reparations for centuries of enslavement, segregation and discrimination.
The U.S. government is “not acting with due diligence to protect the rights of African Americans,” the group said. It called for more thorough civil rights laws, and encouraged the government to create a national plan to comprehensively address racism.
“There is a profound need to acknowledge that the transatlantic trade in Africans, enslavement, colonization and colonialism were a crime against humanity and are among the major sources and manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, Afrophobia, xenophobia and related intolerance,” the U.N. group stressed. “Past injustices and crimes against African Americans need to be addressed with reparatory justice.”
“All lives will not matter until black lives matter”
Ben & Jerry’s, the popular Vermont-based ice cream company, is making an effort to take a stand against institutionalized racism.
The company announced their support for the Black Lives Matter movement on Thursday and released an accompanying seven-point list that spells out the realities of systemic racism. They also said that people who choose to be silent on the issues affecting the black community are also complicit in those problems.
“It’s been hard to watch the list of unarmed Black Americans killed by law enforcement officers grow longer and longer,” the company wrote in a statement. “We understand that numerous Black Americans and white Americans have profoundly different experiences and outcomes with law enforcement and the criminal justice system. That’s why it’s become clear to us at Ben & Jerry’s that we have a moral obligation to take a stand now for justice and for Black lives.”
Things continue to get more odd by the day with Julian Assange. Just yesterday it was reported that an attempted assassination may have been stopped as a man jump the fence when Julian Assange stays, but just a few days prior to that, Assange’s lawyer was killed.
he report says it was a suicide, but WikiLeaks confirms it was NOT a suicide.
According to Before It’s News, Here’s more news you don’t get in the US’ mainstream media: John Jones 48, one of Britain’s top human rights lawyers, who represented Julian Assange was killed last Monday, when he was run over by a commuter train. The death is being called a suicide.
As we recently reported, the hacktivist group Anonymous has declared all out war on the Ku Klux Klan, vowing to expose those members who have infiltrated police departments and government.
Now, on the one year anniversary of #OpKKK, Anonymous has begun publishing the personal details of members of the KKK as part of its campaign of cyberwarfare against the white supremacist hate group.
Just days ago, Anonymous promised that by the middle of November, there would be 1,000 members of the KKK unmasked as part of #OpKKK.
Anonymous made this pledge after coming into possession of the private information through a Twitter account that was hacked.
Anonymous has stated that the list below is only the first small list of politicians to be revealed, published in four separate listings on text-sharing website Pastebin.

In South Los Angeles this weekend, protests erupted over the LAPD killing of a black man long before there was enough information to say why, exactly, the officer had used lethal force or if he was justified in doing so. About two weeks earlier, the police killing of a black man in Charlotte, N.C., also triggered protests — again before all the relevant details were public. Both of the men who died were armed.
It’s not hard to understand why some protesters act before all the facts are in. They are outraged by the frequency of police killings. Enough are captured on video, and appear unwarranted when those recordings are released, to keep many African American communities in a state of distrust. Police officers may recoil at being presumed guilty; activists may risk their credibility if they pounce on ambiguous cases; and protests may turn violent. But some in the Black Lives Matter movement still think a speedy reaction is necessary: Not only are immediate protests a means to vent frustration, they also make it less likely that local authorities or the news media will ignore a given killing.
