Last year, Allyn Walker, Ph.D., a biological female who “identifies” as “male,” provoked widespread controversy after remarks attempting to normalize the phrase “minor-attracted persons.”

Walker has attempted to downplay pedophilia by claiming that adults who are sexually attracted to children should not be viewed as criminals but, instead, be treated with “dignity.”

Despite the controversy, the Moore Center for Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse in Baltimore, Maryland, announced Thursday that Walker will join the center as a postdoctoral fellow on May 25.

Three Kiel Middle School students are being investigated for sexual assault in connection to the incident.

“I received a phone call from the principal over at the elementary school, forewarning me; letting me know that I was going to be receiving an email with sexual harassment allegations against my son,” Rosemary Rabidoux, one of the parents of the students being accused, told Fox 11.

“I immediately went into shock! I’m thinking, sexual harassment? That’s rape, that’s inappropriate touching, that’s incest,” Rabidoux added. “What has my son done?”

On Thursday, New York Comptroller Brad Lander proudly announced that the city’s pension funds, with their estimated $263 billion under management, had successfully pressured four huge Wall Street firms (Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase, and BlackRock), plus Ford Motor Company, to publicly disclose a “Board Matrix” containing the “self-identified gender, race and/or ethnicity of individual directors.”

“Pronounced commitments to diversity and inclusion ring hollow if those values are not reflected in the boardroom where decisions are made impacting their entire workforce,” Lander said in a statement. “The strongest boards and management teams are those that reflect the diversity of their workforce, and of our communities. Diversity is a key factor in performance and essential to the long-term value, a priority for many investors.”

The comptroller’s office expressed disappointment that a sixth firm, NextEra Energy, “refused” to cough up race and gender self-identification of individual board members, opting instead to release that information in aggregate.

Delivering his sentences, Judge Andrew Menary QC said the scale of depravity in the case “beggars belief” and it was likely the victim would suffer “severe psychological harm”.

At a previous hearing, the judge said “just when you think you have heard the worst, another one comes along”.

He added: “Of particular concern to the court is the fact that there are exchanges of messages which are shockingly depraved fantasies.

“And they did not remain as fantasies, some of these were played out in real life.”

The move by Finland to join the NATO alliance has angered Russia who will be suspending all electricity supplies this weekend, a supplier said according to an AFP report.

Tensions continue to rise between Russia and Finland as the latter continue their bid to join NATO – a move Russia has described as a ‘threat’. The decision came after Finland announced on Thursday that they want to join NATO ‘without delay’ – a stand that was strengthened by the ongoing Russia-Ukraine crisis.

“We are forced to suspend the electricity import starting from May 14,” RAO Nordic, a subsidiary of Russian state energy holding Inter RAO said in a statement, according to AFP.

The attack took place on a regional passenger train around Herzogenrath, near the city of Aachen, on Friday morning.

Four people were taken to the hospital, although none of the passengers sustained life-threatening injuries. The victims sustained wounds to their hands and cut wounds to their faces.

The suspect is a 31-year-old man who was born in Iraq, although his citizenship remains unclear, Reuel told reporters. The state interior minister added that investigators are probing a possible extremist motive behind the attack.

In 2017, the man was flagged by authorities as a person potentially at risk for religious radicalization after his behavior considerably changed during his time living in a refugee shelter, Reuel said. Since then, however, there have been no further incidents.

China is digging in its heels on a zero-Covid strategy to stamp out clusters as they emerge, hitting hundreds of areas across Beijing with some form of restrictions, including hard lockdowns.

Residents rushed to supermarkets on Thursday to stock up on groceries as rumours spread that stay-at-home orders would soon be announced. Dining out has already been halted and many tourist attractions closed.

But instead of a lockdown, officials announced a three-day mass testing drive for most of the city Thursday and told residents there was no need to panic-buy food.

Beijing police said in a statement on social media that they have launched an investigation into a woman surnamed Yao.

‘Wake up call’: Chinese spy ship off the coast of WA is ‘concerning’

“A week before the election campaign, you’d have to think this timing isn’t coincidental; you’d question whether this is an attempt at interfering in the election campaign,” Ms Markson told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

Commentary/Opinion:

Leftists defend sending SCARCE baby formula to the border

The Washington Post can go to hell, Glenn says.

Its recent article — ‘The faux outrage that Biden is stockpiling baby formula for undocumented immigrants’ — proves what’s wrong with the leftists today.

The Biden administration IS sending baby formula to migrants at the border, while American parents are struggling to find it in stores. So why is the outrage deemed ‘fake’ by the mainstream press?

Sure, Glenn says, ALL babies should have access to the food they need…babies at the border included.
But shouldn’t we prioritize Americans BEFORE we ship scarce items elsewhere?
