Two North Carolina women allegedly attacked and groped a transgender woman in a bar bathroom, grabbing her genitals and demanding to know if she had a penis.
The incident took place in December at the Milk Bar in Raleigh. As the New York Post reported, Jessica Leann Fowler and Amber Nicole Harrell allegedly confronted the woman in the bathroom and grabbed at her genitals. A friend of the victim called the police the following day, saying that the pair had initially talked with the victim and appeared to be friendly, but one of them then groped her.
The other alleged attacker then laughed and asked if the victim would like to see her breasts, and one of the women allegedly grabbed the victim’s backside, the report noted. As the incident unfolded, the victim repeatedly asked the pair to stop.
But the attack allegedly continued after the victim left the bathroom, prompting the bartender to ask Fowler and Harrell to stop harassing the transgender woman.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose recent health issues have stirred up concerns about the political balance in the Supreme Court, was spotted outside of her Washington, D.C., apartment on Wednesday morning, TMZ reports. Based on video posted by TMZ, Ginsburg looks to still be recovering from surgery to remove cancerous growths in her lungs. The tumors were discovered while the justice was receiving medical care for a fall that fractured three of her ribs.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, experts have said it’s very likely that that fall saved her life. Multiple reports have described the tumors as being at an early stage of development which bodes well for a full recovery. Ginsburg has had cancer twice before, and she’s garnered a reputation for maintaing her work ethic while facing serious health issues.
Au pairs the world over who have worked in the U.S. will be celebrating today after the news that they have been awarded a whopping $65 million settlement with recruitment companies based in America.
Being an au pair is plenty of hard work, looking after someone else’s children, often more than one, and taking care of them day in and day out while the parents work. The job often entails feeding the children and helping them with things like homework if the child is old enough, or changing diapers if they aren’t, and transport to and from school. It is also, fairly often, a thankless job, and for those who have worked in the U.S., apparently also a horribly underpaid one.
A wagering website lost nearly $300,000 because it allowed people to make wagers on how often United States President Donald Trump would lie during last night’s prime time speech from the Oval Office, which was his first during his presidency.
According to a report from the Independent, the site Bookmaker.eu lost $276,424 by allowing users to place the bets about Trump’s possible false statements. The site set the odds at -145 odds that president Trump would lie more than 3.5 times during the nationally televised speech. The odds for fewer than 3.5 mistruths was No. 115.
Unfortunately for the site but fortunately for those who placed bets, 92 percent of people who put money on the odds predicted that Trump would lie four or more times. Odds consultant John Lester told Buzzfeed News, “It’s a bad day for Truthiness and Bookmaker. We knew we were in trouble early with this one.”
It’s almost three weeks into the partial government shutdown imposed by President Donald Trump after congressional Democrats refused his demand for a $5 billion piggy bank for his border wall. The shutdown has had disastrous consequences for many government employees, almost a million of which have been forced to work with no pay or go on furlough. The president has threatened that he is prepared to allow the shutdown to continue for months or even years, holding out until he gets what he wants.
The toll of that is already starting to show, according to a report by the Washington Post. The Capital Area Food Bank is struggling to help people who are suddenly having to call food banks for the first time as they have no idea when they will be getting their next paycheck.
The Texas pastor who gained notoriety for praising the murder of “perverts” in the Pulse nightclub massacre is back in the spotlight again after being ousted from his church after admitting that he took drugs and paid for prostitutes.
Donnie Romero, the former pastor of Stedfast Baptist Church in Fort Worth, this week admitted that he had slept with prostitutes, smoked marijuana, and gambled. As the Dallas News reported, Romero had come under fire after the 2016 shooting at an Orlando gay bar that left 49 people dead when he condemned the victims and for his refusal to apologize or to budge from his anti-gay stance.
This week, Romero admitted to allegations that he had used drugs and paid for prostitutes as he was ousted from the church. Romero said one of the indiscretions took place during a trip to Jacksonville, Florida, where the church has a satellite location.
Romero still stuck to his anti-gay stances, though did apologize for his behavior.
Noelle and Cali Sheldon are teenage twins who made their way on to the big screen before they could even talk. They look like two ordinary girls, but upon closer look you’ll notice there is something vaguely familiar about them. Switching places throughout filming, the two played Ross and Rachel’s baby Emma on Friends. The girls are now 16-years-old and ready to take on a more mature role in the film industry. They recently announced through Instagram that they will be playing a role in upcoming horror film Us, according to People.
An unfathomable number of priests across the country have found themselves thrust into the spotlight after being accused of unspeakable crimes involving children.
In Illinois alone, 690 priests have been blamed for abuse against children, a report has shown. But a secret has emerged, thrusting the Catholic church into the criminal lineup again. This time, though, it involves nuns.
CBS News disclosed information about several cases involving nuns accused of the same misconduct as priests. Nikki Battiste with CBS News spoke with several of the female accusers who shared horrifying stories ranging from forceful kissing sessions to molestation.
Trish Cahill was just 15 years old when she shared a deep dark secret with Sister Eileen Shaw, a nun at a convent in New Jersey. Cahill told Sister Shaw how her now-deceased uncle – who happened to be a priest – allegedly sexually abused her beginning at the tender and innocent age of five.
The government shutdown is currently showing no signs of ending, and a negotiation aimed at ending the impasse quickly fell apart Wednesday when President Trump stormed out of a negotiating session with Democratic congressional leaders. The president maintains that building a wall is necessary to stop what he calls a crisis at the border.
Now, a new report has raised questions about whether the wall would accomplish all the president says it would.
NBC News reported Thursday that the prototype of a steel slat-based wall proposed by the president can be easily cut with a saw. The report, from Jacob Soboroff and Julia Ainsley, found that when the Department of Homeland Security tested the prototype in 2017, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection later issued a report stating that “experts from the Marine Corps were instructed to attempt to destroy the barriers with common tools,” a task at which they succeeded.
The White House’s official Twitter account made a couple of pretty bold, and questionable, claims on Wednesday evening about what a proposed border wall could accomplishment.
On two topics — drugs and human trafficking — the White House claimed in its tweet that the proposed extensions of a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico would yield positive outcomes.
“A barrier is needed to stop human trafficking, drugs, and gangs. These things don’t come through checkpoints — they come through areas where we have hundreds of miles without walls, without barriers, or without strong fences.”
The tweet was, in fact, an abbreviated version of words that President Donald Trump had said earlier in the day to reporters, according to the White House’s website. Drug smugglers and traffickers “don’t come through your checkpoints; they come through areas where you have hundreds of miles without walls and without barriers, or without strong fences,” Trump had said.
A teenager’s corpse has been snatched from her grave in China for a disturbingly dark reason.
The Mirror reports that the authorities suspect her body was dug up to be used in a “ghost marriage” also know as “minghun” or “spirit marriage.”
There’s bizarre, there’s deranged, there’s frothing at the mouth, bug-eyed lunacy, and then there’s the practice of digging up corpses and marrying them, also know as ghost marriages — something which is apparently on the rise in China. Grabbing a trusty pick and shovel and setting out to dig up your decaying bride to be from the cold unyielding earth is not something even the master of the macabre, Edgar Allen Poe, would have considered to be the done thing.
Yet in medieval China it was all the rage to marry a woman who was cold, rigid, riddled with worms, and softly decaying.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, a woman who has been in a vegetative state for over a decade gave birth on December 29, while residing in Arizona’s Hacienda Healthcare nursing facility. Local law enforcement officials have issued a subpoena for the DNA of male staff members amidst the ongoing investigation, and have reached out to the community for any leads in finding out who had sexually assaulted the 29-year old.
The family of the victim has released a statement, saying that they are “traumatized and shocked” over the ordeal. John Michaels, an attorney who spoke on behalf of the family, asked the public to please let the family have their privacy during this difficult time.
“The family would like me to convey that the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for,” Michaels said, as the Arizona Daily Star reported.
The Trump administration is done with special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian meddling — at least according to Rudy Giuliani. Trump’s attorney has stated that the President will no longer be answering questions as part of Mueller’s investigation, according to The Huffington Post.
Trump has already answered questions for Mueller during the course of his investigation, although he hasn’t had a formal interview. Instead, the President submitted written answers to Mueller and his team back in late November. Mueller has since indicated that he would like to ask follow-up questions, but Giuliani and the rest of Trump’s lawyers have said that their client will not respond to any further inquiries.
“As far as we’re concerned, everything is over,” Giuliani said in an interview with Reuters. “We weren’t convinced they had any questions they don’t know the answer to. They could try to subpoena him if they want. But they know we could fight that like hell.”
In startling revelation Tuesday, from court documents filed in the Robert Mueller-led investigation into possible collusion between the 2016 Donald Trumps presidential campaign and Russia, Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort was revealed to have transmitted internal campaign polling data to a suspected Russian intelligence operative, as the New York Times reported. According to experts, the incident uncovered by special counsel Robert Mueller would constitute the clearest example yet of collusion between the campaign and Russia — especially if Russians used the data in their covert social media propaganda campaign to help Trump win the election.
“If Russians used data obtained from Manafort… to inform their decisions about paid advertising mentioning Trump or Clinton—decisions about the content of the ads, the timing of the ads, the intended audience of the ads, etc., then the ads would likely meet the federal law definition of ‘coordinated communications,'” wrote campaign law expert Paul Seamus Ryan on the Just Security site.
President Donald Trump took a jab at Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos in regards to his newly-announced divorce, saying “it’s going to be a beauty!”
On Wednesday, Trump commented on Bezos’ pending divorce situation, which has been overshadowed by rumors of his infidelity, saying “I wish him luck” twice, before delivering the sarcastic comment, according to the Daily Mail. The online mogul and his wife, MacKenzie Bezos, announced via a joint statement on his Twitter account that they would be officially separating, in what appeared to be a reasonably amicable split.
Raymond Rowe has confessed to the 1992 rape and murder of a popular teacher, a case that was cracked after his sister uploaded DNA to a public genealogy website.
Rowe had been arrested last year for the brutal slaying of 25-year-old Christy Mirack more than 25 years ago, and this week pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in a plea bargain that will have him sent to prison for life without the possibility of parole. As People magazine reported, the case had long gone unsolved after Mirack was found dead in her Pennsylvania home, having been strangled with her sweater and beaten so badly that police did not recognize her.
In the years that followed the murder, Raymond Rowe made a name for himself as a popular DJ and even claimed to work for celebrities including Paris Hilton and Brooke Hogan, daughter of wrestling legend Hulk Hogan.
Sadly, another brave police officer has fallen.
On Wednesday evening, Shreveport, Louisiana, police officer Chateri Payne was getting prepared to work the night shift of her job when the unthinkable happened. According to CBS News, the rookie officer was shot outside of a home just before 8:30 p.m. Shortly after, a 911 call came into police saying that a woman had been shot.
When her fellow police officers arrived on the scene, they found Payne “fighting for her life” after she had been shot multiple times. The wounded officer was rushed to the hospital immediately but sadly, she died just a few hours later from her injuries. So far, nobody is in custody and the police still have yet to determine a motive or identify a suspect.
Throughout the 2016 election, a former British intelligence officer named Christopher Steele collected information on what he considered to be a troubling relationship between then-candidate Donald Trump and Russian interests. He then compiled that information into a dossier.
In October of 2016, Mother Jones reported that an unnamed intelligence officer had been collecting information that the Russian government had been grooming Trump for several years in order to hurt Western alliances — and to get Trump elected as president. Reporter David Corn added that the anonymous officer had turned the information over to the FBI.
After Trump was elected president, lawmakers were briefed on the dossier, with more information having been added to it. And then, in early 2017, both President Barack Obama and President-Elect Donald Trump were briefed the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, and about the dossier.
Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s former lawyer, has agreed to testify publicly before the House Oversight Committee. According to CNN, this marks a major triumph for House Democrats, who have been attempting to get a member of Trump’s inner circle to speak about the assorted allegations against the president.
Cohen, who worked closely with Donald Trump during his campaign, pleaded guilty in December to a variety of different charges. These included two campaign finance crimes surrounding illicit payments he made to several women during Trump’s presidential run. The women and Cohen allege that the money was promised so long as the women kept quiet about their extramarital affairs with Trump — and Cohen insists this was done on Trump’s direct orders.
The Justice for Victims of Lynching Act passed in the U.S. Senate unanimously, making lynching a federal crime — but one evangelical group is not happy with some of the wording, as they don’t think the law should include the LGBTQ community.
NBC says that Liberty Counsel, which is an evangelical grouped chaired by Mat Staver, is against gay rights — and that the group is disappointed that the bill includes LGBTQ people. Particularly, Staver says that they particularly object to the use of the terms “gender identity” and “sexual orientation” in the wording.
In a recent interview, Staver was blunt when talking about his concerns.
