Parents and staff members at a Los Angeles elementary school have voted to keep Michael Jackson’s name on its auditorium despite the recent allegations that the pop icon sexually abused young boys.

Gardner Street Elementary School, which the pop icon himself once attended, will continue to pay tribute to Jackson after the majority of school staffers and parents of students voted in favor of maintaining “Michael Jackson Auditorium” as the name of the facility, school officials said last week.

MICHAEL JACKSON’S CHILDREN INVESTIGATING SEXUAL ABUSE ACCUSERS FOR POTENTIAL FRAUD, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS LAWSUIT

The vote took place in the wake of the recent HBO documentary, “Leaving Neverland,” which featured the disturbing stories of two men – Wade Robson and James Safechuck – who claimed that Jackson sexually abused them when they were boys.

The men first came forward with their stories years earlier in lawsuits. Both had previously denied Jackson sexually abused them, but after having their own children — and after the singer’s death in 2009 — they said they had to face the truth. Their lawsuits were dismissed for technical reasons and their appeals are expected to be argued this summer.

Jackson, who was cleared in 2005 of charges that he molested another boy, admitted that over the years he befriended multiple children. He said he invited some into his bed, but denied molesting any of them.

After the airing of the documentary, a group of parents approached school principal Karen Hollis and asked to take Jackson’s name down from the auditorium, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Other parents objected, arguing that Jackson was never convicted of the alleged crimes and noting that the singer is no longer around to defend himself.

Even Jackson’s estate inserted itself into the fight to keep the name, with a spokesperson urging the school community to respect Jackson’s right to remain innocent until proven guilty, according to the newspaper.

The auditorium was reportedly named for Jackson in 1989, way before Jackson became dogged by controversies and allegations.

Robson, one of the alleged victims, told the Times before the vote that he commends the school for giving parents a choice.

“I commend Gardner Street School for allowing the parents to decide whether or not Michael Jackson’s name should remain on the auditorium,” Robson said.

Florida toddler with spina bifida uses ‘Baby Shark’ tune to learn how to walk

Two-year-old Harper Comparin, who has spina bifida, is stepping along to the tune of  “Baby Shark” as she undergoes pediatric rehabilitation at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The toddler has severe spina bifida, a type of neural tube defect that prevents the spine from forming properly. In the most severe cases of spina bifida, people can be paralyzed or unable to walk or move their body, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

TEXAS TODDLER LANDS IN ICU AFTER SWALLOWING DAD’S WATCH BATTERY

Dr. Michelle Schultz said she knew she had to use some improvisation and outside-the-box thinking to help get Harper’s confidence back up after she had undergone several surgeries for her condition.  “That was a big barrier we really had to cross at first, to regain her trust,” Schultz told WFTS-TV.

The “Baby Shark” song produced by the South Korean children’s educational brand, Pink Fong, has over 2 million views on Youtube. The repetitive beat played an impactful role in helping Harper regain her abilities, the doctor said.

“I like the tune of that song,” said Schultz, describing how she sings “Baby Shark” to help Harper establish a set pace on a small treadmill. “I use it like a metronome. I want her to walk to that beat. Doo doo doo! Pick up her speed, walk faster.”

Parents Fred and Erica Comparin were also amazed at how outgoing their daughter has become compared to when she first began rehab.

“When I first saw her taking 5,6,7 steps across the room, I was like ‘Are you serious?’” her father Fred Comparin said. “She’ll now just walk up to total strangers and just say, ‘Hi!’”

Harper now smiles more, can play and tumble with her older brother Kellen and even began to talk, her parents said. Shultz is continuing Harper’s therapy, “shopping” with her using play toys so that the toddler will develop other motor skills besides walking and standing.

Attorney General Barr to be a no-show at House hearing, could face contempt charge, subpoena

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know today…

Barr to skip House hearing, could face subpoena, contempt charge
After Wednesday’s contentious day of testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding the Mueller report, Attorney General William Barr informed the House Judiciary Committee that he would not testify Thursday as scheduled, prompting threats of subpoenas from Democrats and a possible contempt citation. Democrats have vowed to hold the hearing anyway, leaving open the possibility of the spectacle of House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., gaveling a hearing with an empty chair reserved for Barr. A key sticking point was that Nadler wanted to have House Judiciary Committee staff — rather than members of Congress — question him on his handling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation. But DOJ officials said members should conduct the inquiry, and it was unclear why Democrats did not propose having staffers provide questions to members during the hearing.

The rift between Barr and Congressional Democrats was the backdrop for a tense day of testimony Wednesday where the attorney general accused the lawmakers of using criminal justice process as “political weapon” ahead of the 2020 presidential election and declared the Justice Department’s role in the Russia probe controversy “over.” President Trump, in an interview on Fox Business’ “Trish Regan Primetime,” praised Barr’s testimony but said lawmakers treated him “differently” than anyone else.

Rep. Omar believes US ‘bullying’ has contributed to Venezuela chaos
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, suggested Wednesday that the United States could be partly to blame for the ongoing turmoil in Venezuela, saying the policies of the Trump administration had “kind of helped lead the devastation.” Appearing on “Democracy Now,” a news program broadcast on PBS, Omar was asked to weigh in on what the host described as a “U.S.-supported coup attempt” against Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro. “A lot of the policies that we have put in place [have] kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela and we have sort of set the stage for where we are arriving today,” she said. “This particular bullying and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States.”

Biden and Romney give opposite views of China’s threat to the US
Former Vice President Joe Biden expressed his lack of concern over China as a global competitor to the U.S. at a rally on Wednesday, prompting a grim response from Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, on Twitter. Biden, the 2020 Democratic frontrunner, mocked those who have taken China seriously. “China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man!” Biden exclaimed. “They’re not competition for us.” That sparked a reaction from Romney, who ran against Biden’s running mate, former President Barack Obama, in 2012. “This will not age well,” Romney predicted in a tweet.

Covington Catholic High School student sues NBC for $275 million
Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann is suing NBCUniversal for a whopping $275 million for defamation over the media coverage he received earlier this year, his lawyer said Wednesday. Sandmann was at the center of a viral controversy back in January, alongside reports suggesting that he and his classmates had initiated a confrontation with Native American elder Nathan Phillips outside the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Subsequent reporting and video evidence contradicted that version of events. This marks the third major lawsuit Sandmann’s legal team has launched. The team is also suing the Washington Post for $250 million as well as CNN for $275 million. Sandmann’s lawyer previously suggested that the Associated Press and HBO could face similar lawsuits.

Imagine Dragons beats out Queen at Billboard Music Awards – and Twitter explodes
Some fans are upset after Imagine Dragons bested the iconic rock band Queen to take home the coveted Top Rock Artist honor Wednesday evening at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. “Imagine dragons won a rock award over queen, one of the best rock bands of all time,” tweeted one social media user, while many others echoed the same frustration with the decision. “What kind of world gives best rock band to @Imaginedragons over Queen?” wrote another viewer. Aside from the controversy over Imagine Dragons versus Queen, here is the complete winners list for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.

Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to visit with community and faith leaders near Opelousas, Louisiana, where three black churches were destroyed by an arsonist.

News outlets report the White House says Pence will tour the remains of one of the churches on Friday and meet with Republican U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy. The Rev. Gerald Toussaint says he and reverends from the other burned churches will also be meeting with the vice president.

A local sheriff’s deputy’s 21-year-old son, Holden Matthews, has been charged in the March and April burnings with offenses including arson. He’s pleaded not guilty and is set to appear in court Thursday for a bond hearing.

A crowdfunding campaign for the churches’ restoration has raised more than $2.1 million.

Info on UFO sightings not to go public, Navy says

The U.S. Navy has drafted new guidelines for collecting information on UFO sightings, but the information won’t be made public, according to a Tuesday report.

A Navy spokesman told The Washington Post that the reporting on UFOs would fall under “privileged and classified information” so that military aviation safety organizations can “preserve the free and honest prioritization and discussion of safety among aircrew.”

The new guidelines for reporting “UFOs” came in response to unknown, advanced aircraft flying into or near Navy strike groups or other sensitive military facilities and formations, the Navy said.

UFOS ARE TIME MACHINES FROM THE FUTURE, PROFESSOR CLAIMS

“For safety and security concerns, the Navy and the [U.S. Air Force] takes these reports very seriously and investigates each and every report,” the Navy said in a statement released to Politico.

The Navy has in recent years stressed the new need for a more formalized process of recording “UFO” sightings – which proliferated after World War II.  The service said in 2017 it had run a secret “UFO” office and spent $22 million over five years to study “anomalous aerospace” threats.”

But for now, the data “remains strictly within classified channels,” said Luis Elizondo, an intelligence officer who ran the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, which officially ended in 2012, according to The Post.

Chicago woman accused in Iowa sister’s stabbing death not guilty due to insanity, judge rules

Westlake Legal Group chicago-woman-accused-in-iowa-sisters-stabbing-death-not-guilty-due-to-insanity-judge-rules Chicago woman accused in Iowa sister's stabbing death not guilty due to insanity, judge rules fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/iowa fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/illinois fox-news/us/crime/homicide fox-news/us/crime fox-news/health/mental-health fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 82bde8cd-aa41-505c-9ce4-a3d701b66efe

A Chicago woman whom prosecutors say fatally stabbed her sister while visiting Iowa in 2017 was found not guilty on reason of insanity last week and will undergo a complete psychiatric evaluation that will determine if she is fit to be released back into public life.

Leisha McDuffy, 33, of Chicago entered her then 30-year-old sister Lakeisha McDuffy’s bedroom in another relative’s Des Moines apartment on Sept. 10, 2017, and stabbed the sister multiple times in front of her children, authorities have said. A wound to the victim’s chest punctured her heart.

A medical examiner also found seven stab wounds to the upper right back and two wounds to the upper right arm, determining “Lakeisha died from multiple sharp force trauma,” WOI-DT reported, citing court documents.

FORMER IOWA SOFTBALL STANDOUT, 25, KILLED BY APPARENT STRAY BULLET; POLICE INVESTIGATE POSSIBLE ILLEGAL HUNTER

Last week, Polk County Judge Jeffrey Farrell found McDuffy not guilty of first-degree murder by reason of insanity after mental health experts reported that she showed symptoms of severe schizophrenia disorder. Both sides in the case hired psychiatrists to evaluate the defendant.

In 2018, District Judge Heather Lauber originally found McDuffy incompetent to stand trial and “a danger to public health and safety.” McDuffy was committed to the custody of the Iowa Department of Corrections to receive treatment until she was restored to the mental competency required to appear before the court, the Des Moines Register reported.

“Based on the reports from each parties’ expert witness, and the evidence in support of their opinions, the court concludes that defendant has met her burden of proving the insanity defense,” Farrell wrote in last week’s ruling.

Dr. Steven Bruce, who was hired by the defense, examined McDuffy twice — once in December 2017 and again in January 2019. “He stated defendant’s primary mental health diagnosis was severe schizophrenia disorder,” the ruling said.

Schizophrenia is “diagnosed after a patient shows at least two of the following five symptoms”: Delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, disorganized or catatonic behavior and negative symptoms,” the ruling explained.

Bruce identified three of the five in McDuffy: delusions, hallucinations and disorganized speech. A second psychiatrist hired by prosecutors, Dr. Tracy Thomas, observed all five symptoms of the mental disorder during a February 2019 evaluation.

McDuffy will receive a complete psychiatric evaluation at Iowa Medical and Classification Center in Oakdale to provide the court with insight on whether she is mentally ill and dangerous to herself and others. The report must be returned to the court within 15 days of admission.

“If, upon hearing, the court finds that the defendant is not mentally ill and no longer dangerous to the defendant’s self or to others, the court shall order the defendant release,” Iowa’s Chapter 2 Rules of Criminal Procedure states.

Portland, Ore., police responded to a brawl outside a bar Wednesday night, where members of far-left Antifa clashed with those from the conservative Proud Boys group, according to reports.

People from both sides fought and sprayed bear repellent and pepper spray at each other, the reports said.

The fight happened after a day of generally peaceful May Day protests across the city. Hundreds of people rallied for the rights of immigrants, workers and other marginalized groups, specifically at gatherings in Elizabeth Caruthers Park, Holladay Park and Chapman Square.

FBI PROBING ANTIFA PLOT TO BUY GUNS FROM MEXICAN CARTEL, ‘STAGE AN ARMED REBELLION AT THE BORDER’

No arrests were made and no force was used by police during any of the free speech assemblies, according to a statement late Wednesday from the Portland Police Department.

However, one video posted by a freelance journalist Mike Bivins appeared to show that a woman had been knocked unconscious. The circumstances relating to the video weren’t immediately clear.

In another post, journalist and photographer Andy Ngo claims to have been pepper-sprayed by an Antifa demonstrator. Ngo then appears to drop the camera and fall back before the video ends.

In 2017, 25 people were arrested in Portland after a peaceful protest turned into a riot on May Day, OregonLive reported.

One group assembling Wednesday wore clothes and American flag helmets affiliated with the Proud Boys, Oregon Live reported. Others in the video can be seen wearing all-black attire and bandanas over their faces, a style typically associated with Antifa members.

Police arrived at the bar at 8:30 p.m. to interview witnesses, Oregon Live reported. No arrests were announced related to the brawl.

Antifa — short for antifascist — is the term used for those who say they oppose neo-Nazis, racists and other hate groups. Most recently, the FBI was investigating a possible Antifa plot to buy guns from a Mexican cartel and stage an armed rebellion against U.S. law enforcement at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The Proud Boys describe themselves as “Western chauvinists who refuse to apologize for creating the modern world.” Facebook and Instagram banned the organization in October based on the platform’s policies against hate speech.

President Donald Trump says people of faith around the world have faced terrible hardship of late.

Trump says violence and terrorism against people of all faiths must end, and that “all civilized nations must join together in this effort.”

Trump spoke Wednesday to faith leaders at a White House dinner in honor of the National Day of Prayer, an event that takes place Thursday.

Trump paid respects to Jewish-Americans killed and wounded last week at the Chabad of Poway synagogue in California. He also recalled the attacks on Christians in Sri Lanka last Easter and on Muslims in New Zealand the month before.

He also cited the burning of three black churches in Louisiana and last year’s shooting spree at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

A man reportedly died Wednesday evening after a shooting at an apartment complex across the street from the University of North Carolina – Charlotte, just one day after two students were killed in a shooting on the campus.

Charlotte police said Wednesday’s shooting has no connection to the deadly attack at the university, stating it happened after an argument at a neighborhood pool, Fox 46 reported.

Boston subway passengers help, snuggle with squirrel

A fuzzy rodent on a Boston trolley sent some passengers into a brief panic during their Monday morning commute, before it willingly snuggled with one of them.

Some commuters on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority‘s Red Line car were surprised when a baby squirrel dashed through the doors of the trolley at the Ashmont station, prompting some to jump onto their seats.

“They weren’t sure if it would attack them,” passenger Rosanne Foley told Boston.com. “I explained it was only a baby squirrel to help calm things down.”

 SQUIRREL CAUGHT RED-HANDED ON VIDEO STEALING BISCUIT

As the passengers warmed up to the critter, one woman picked it up with a reusable bag and snuggled with it in her arms and pet its head, Foley told the news site. Another offered the squirrel a piece of a granola bar. The animal remained in the car for two stops and left at the aboveground Fields Corner station.

“We were thinking best to release above ground where it could see trees rather than underground in Shawmut,” Foley said.

Lisa Battiston, a spokeswoman for the MBTA, said the agency was still working to identify the squirrel’s whereabouts. She thanked the passengers for their compassion, but encouraged customers to avoid contact with stray animals.
