The Woman Who Accused Justin Trudeau of Groping Her Breaks Her Silence; Here’s What She Said

Published

on

Self-proclaimed feminist Justin Trudeau has found himself in quite a pickle lately.

The #MeToo movement is turning out to be a bit of a double-edged sword for male feminists; it gives them a fun new movement to rally behind and get themselves some extra political points, but, like many have discovered, it also means that every woman you’ve ever so much as looked at inappropriately now has new confidence with which to come out of the woodwork and tell the world what a pig you are.

In the case of Trudeau, his accuser came out 18 years ago; but her story has received new attention in the era of #MeToo.

In 2000, a young unnamed reporter penned an anonymous column in which she accused Trudeau, who was at the time the Prime Minister’s son, of groping her at a charity concert.

Back then, he apologized, one might say quite weakly, saying “If I had known you were reporting for a national paper, I never would have been so forward.”

In other words, “If I’d known you were going to tell anyone I wouldn’t have touched you.”

He’s maintained that he cannot recall “anything negative” transpiring between the two of them, which sounds suspiciously like Kevin Spacey’s response when Anthony Rapp accused him of trying to seduce him when Rapp was only 14.

“I’ve been working very hard to try and piece it together, and even when the original editorial came out at the time I was fairly confident, I was very confident, that I hadn’t acted in a way that I felt was in any way inappropriate,” he said on Thursday, according to NPR.

Now, the woman, who has remained unnamed up until this point, has come forward in a statement that was released on Twitter:

“I issue this statement reluctantly, in response to mounting media pressure to confirm that I was the reporter who was the subject of the Open Eyes editorial, published in the Creston Valley Advance in August of 2000,” she wrote, explaining she’d remained silent out of concern for her family’s safety.

“The debate, if it continues, will continue without my involvement,” she added.

American Missionaries, Including Children, Kidnapped in Haiti

The FBI has now gotten involved as well.

Published

on

There is once again trouble in the unsettled streets of Haiti, and this time there are American lives at stake.

As the tiny island nation continues to suffer from unrest and an unhealthy escalation of gang-related violence, a number of American missionaries from Ohio have been kidnapped.

A group of 17 U.S. missionaries including children was kidnapped by a gang in Haiti on Saturday, according to a voice message sent to various religious missions by an organization with direct knowledge of the incident.

The missionaries were on their way home from building an orphanage, according to a message from Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries.

“This is a special prayer alert,” the one-minute message said. “Pray that the gang members would come to repentance.”

The message says the mission’s field director is working with the U.S. Embassy, and that the field director’s family and one other unidentified man stayed at the ministry’s base while everyone else visited the orphanage.

On Tuesday, it was revealed that the FBI had gotten involved, and other entities within the federal government were doing all they could to help.

The State Department said Sunday its officials have been in “regular contact” with Haitian authorities “and will continue to work with them and interagency partners” to recover the group, a spokesperson told ABC News. The U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince is leading coordination with local authorities and providing assistance to the families, Psaki added.

The Haitian government suspects the gang known as 400 Mawozo to be responsible for the abductions, according to a source at the Haitian presidential office.

Haiti’s gang violence has now cemented the nation as the kidnapping capital of the world, with over 600 such crimes having occurred there in 2021 alone.

Southwest Airlines Hit by Major Employee Protest Over Vaccine Mandate

And just one week after a mysterious mass cancelation of flights.

Published

on

Just a week ago, Southwest Airlines was in the midst of a massive and troublesome cancelation of flights, with some estimates suggesting that nearly one third of the company’s entire fleet was grounded.

Southwest was quick in trying to get out ahead of the controversy, blaming weather and air traffic control issues for the massive trouble, but astute researchers were quick to point out that ATC hadn’t suggested anything of the sort on their end, and that the percentage of all canceled flights that belonged to Southwest was indicative of a problem within the airline itself.

Many began to suggest that the airline was suffering from the fallout of their coming vaccine mandate, and new evidence this week seems to refute the company’s claim to the contrary.

Current and former Southwest Airlines workers gathered to protest recent COVID-19 vaccination mandates on Monday, Oct. 18.

They gathered to celebrate “medical freedom” at the airline’s headquarters in Dallas.

Chopper 11 flew over the group of hundreds of people holding signs that said, “Terminate the mandate,” “freedom not force” and “no jabs for jobs,”

Southwest set its deadline the first week of October under a federal vaccination mandate for employees of companies holding contracts with the U.S. government. But workers can seek medical or religious exemptions. Workers have until late November to comply with the vaccine mandate.

Employers who have embraced vaccine mandates have suffered greatly in recent weeks, as Americans continue to exercise their right to bodily sovereignty in the face of growing pressure to receive the jab.
