#4  M, a search of the Rantburg archives reveals Clock Boy, Sudanese-American Ahmed Mohamed, moved with his family to Qatar in late 2015 to take advantage of a full scholarship for high school and college for their young innovators program. Assuming young Mr, Mohamed was able to keep up, he must still be in college there now at age 20.

The defamation law suits were dismissed in 2016 and 2017.

Woman busted for anti-Asian assault spree in Queens: cops
[NYPOST] A woman was arrested Thursday for an alleged hate-driven, anti-Asian assault spree that left four people injured over the course of several months in Queens, police said.

Maricia Bell, 25, is accused of attacking three women — ages 75, 63 and 34 — and a 23-year-old man in four separate incidents in the borough beginning May 23, according to police.

In the first attack, Bell allegedly yelled, "Why are you talking to me?" before punching the man in a Flushing parking lot on Kissena Boulevard, cops said.

Bell allegedly committed a similar assault against the 34-year-old woman inside a Pomonok bodega at about 6:40 p.m. June 16, according to police.

At about 8 p.m. July 11, Bell is accused of slugging the 63-year-old woman in the face as the victim was walking near 72nd Avenue and Parsons Boulevard, according to police.

In the latest incident, Bell allegedly whacked the 75-year-old woman with a hammer at 71st Avenue and Parsons Boulevard at about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, authorities said.

Bell was hit with several hate crime charges, including assault, harassment and robbery, police said.

She has five prior arrests, sources said, including one on March 29 in which she was charged with assault as a hate crime.

Lowlifes brutally beat woman with cooking pot, steal her walker
[NYPOST] A group of lowlifes was caught on camera this week savagely beating a woman who uses a walker to get around — before fleeing with the device and $22.Surveillance footage of the appalling attack Tuesday evening in Harlem showed three women and a man roughing up the 61-year-old victim — punching her repeatedly while she’s on the ground and stomping on her, police said Thursday.

At one point, one of the female attackers was seen beating the helpless victim with a cooking pot, according to the NYPD.

The attack, which happened at the corner of Eighth Avenue and West 151 Street in Harlem around 8:20 p.m., lasted at least 40 seconds, the footage showed.

The crew made off with the victim’s walker, $22 and credit cards, cops said.

‘Disgraceful & Ungrateful': U.S. Lezbo Losers Soccer Team Blasted for Woke Protests
[Breitbart] U.S. women’s soccer, which suffered a brutal 3-0 loss to Sweden on Wednesday morning in their Tokyo Olympic opener, is facing backlash online after kneeling in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

"Disgraceful & ungrateful," Ingraham wrote. "Always all about them—their woke brands are joke brands."

"I’m so happy they lost," the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh wrote in a tweet. "I’m actively rooting against US women’s soccer. I want them to be humiliated and embarrassed, just as they humiliate and embarrass our country."

I am truly hoping for each and every one of these goons to lose and lose big and early. Their minds are far more on their protest performances than their sport, and one can at least hope that they will be an object lesson to others...especially once the endorsements dry up.

Berlin authorities placed children with pedophiles for 30 years
[DW] The 'Kentler Project' in West Berlin routinely placed homeless children with pedophile men, assuming they'd make ideal foster parents. A study has found the practice went on for decades.

Starting in the 1970s psychology professor Helmut Kentler conducted his "experiment." Homeless children in West Berlin were intentionally placed with pedophile men. These men would make especially loving foster parents, Kentler argued.

A study conducted by the University of Hildesheim has found that authorities in Berlin condoned this practice for almost 30 years. The pedophile foster fathers even received a regular care allowance.

Helmut Kentler (1928-2008) was in a leading position at Berlin's center for educational research. He was convinced that sexual contact between adults and children was harmless.

Berlin's child welfare offices and the governing Senate turned a blind eye or even approved of the placements.

Several years ago two of the victims came forward and told their story, since then the researchers at Hildesheim University have plowed through files and conducted interviews.

What they found was a "network across educational institutions," the state youth welfare office and the Berlin Senate, in which pedophilia was "accepted, supported, defended."

Kentler himself was in regular contact with the children and their foster fathers. He was never prosecuted: By the time his victims came forward, the statute of limitations for his actions had expired. This has also thus far prevented the victims from getting any compensation.

The researchers found that several of the foster fathers were high-profile academics. They speak of a network that included high-ranking members of the Max Planck Institute, Berlin's Free University, and the notorious Odenwald School in Hesse, West Germany, which was at the center of a major pedophilia scandal several years ago. It has since been closed down.

Berlin's senator for youth and children, Sandra Scheeres called the findings "shocking and horrifying."

A first report on the "Kentler experiment" was published in 2016 by the University of Göttingen. The researchers then stated that the Berlin Senate seemed to lack interest in finding out the truth.

Now Berlin authorities have vowed to shed light on the matter.

Pedophiles in the guise of foster fathers — with vulnerable young boys in their care: The Kentler Project was just one manifestation of a perverted notion of Germany's sexual liberation that goes back to the 1960s.

FBI agents to pair up with Portland police in downtown and entertainment district after deadly shooting
Last year Trump offered to send federal officers to restore order to Portland's streets, and the city officials had a hissy fit, like this one by the mayor. Now the feds are most welcome, 'cause it's different when they do it.
[OregonLive] FBI agents will pair up with officers in the Portland police Enhanced Community Safety Team to provide more coverage in downtown Friday and Saturday nights in the wake of a mass shooting that killed an 18-year-old and wounded six others last Saturday.

The weekend also marks the kickoff of a formal grand reopening of the city center after a year of upheaval.

Police plan to pull officers from their North and East precincts to bolster Central Precinct patrols in the downtown core, provide more overtime for the increased coverage and have FBI agents ride-along with certain officers.
Of course, if I were a Portland cop riding along with a Famous But Incompetent agent, I'd be thinking entrapment the whole way. "Yes, I'm all in favor of Critical Race Theory. Have it with my coffee every morning, I do. Did the mike pick that up? And Ashli Babbitt committed suicide."
