Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson is facing a $5 million lawsuit from an anonymous plaintiff who alleges the famed boxer raped her in a limousine after meeting at a nightclub roughly three decades ago.

The unnamed plaintiff contends in the suit that she suffered "physical, psychological, and emotional injury" in years following Tyson's alleged misconduct, according to the New York Post.

>>"I told him no several times and asked him to stop, but he continued to attack me. He then pulled my pants off and violently raped me," Tyson's accuser claims.

Despite the alleged rape occurring approximately thirty years prior, the plaintiff is able to file suit under New York's Adult Survivors Act, which has created a one-year legal window in which alleged sexual assault victims may bring suits for incidents that occurred beyond the normal statutes of limitation.

Tyson was previously convicted of raping then 18-year-old Desiree Washington in 1992.

GOP Sen. Ted Cruz is asking the Justice Department to search President Joe Biden’s records from the time he was a senator and that have been stored at the University of Delaware to see whether they contain more classified documents.

An FBI search of Biden's home Friday found classified documents from his time as vice president and senator, marking the fifth time classified materials have been discovered in his possession since November.

On an episode released Monday of his podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz," the senator said the "next step in this scandal" will be finding "how many more classified documents are illegally in his Senate papers."

>>He also said: "The University of Delaware has more than 1,850 boxes of records from Joe Biden’s Senate tenure which he gave to the university."

Cruz said the university "presumably" does not store the documents in a secure location.

The media attempted to obtain those documents when allegations of sexual harassment were raised against Biden during the 2020 presidential election, but the university denied the request, stating that the release will happen two years after Biden retires from being a public figure, Cruz said.

>>"I am right now calling for the Department of Justice, for the FBI to examine all 1,850 boxes of those Senate records to see how many additional classified documents are in those records," Cruz also said. "The answer should be none."

Vice President Kamala Harris conveniently left out a fundamental right when quoting the Declaration of Independence on Sunday to promote abortion.

On the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the now-reversed landmark Supreme Court case that established a federal right to abortion, Harris gave a speech in Florida in which she attacked Gov. Ron DeSantis and Republican lawmakers in the Sunshine State, whom she called "extremists," for protecting the rights of unborn children.

At the beginning of her speech, Harris quoted the Declaration of Independence — but omitted the right to "life."

"We are here together because we collectively believe and know America is a promise. America is a promise. It is a promise of freedom and liberty — not for some, but for all," Harris said.

"A promise we made in the Declaration of Independence that we are each endowed with the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness," she continued.

Commonly-prescribed antidepressants can cause patients to become emotionally numb by affecting a key cognitive function that allows people to learn from their actions, a new study suggests.

A class of antidepressants, known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), is widely used to treat patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). These drugs block serotonin from being absorbed back into the blood, leaving a higher level of the “feel-good chemical” in the brain.

While SSRIs are effective in helping to alleviate severe MDD or OCD symptoms, many of those who take the drugs report “blunting,” meaning they are unable to experience positive or negative emotions such as happiness or sadness and no longer find things as enjoyable as they used to.

In a study published on Jan. 23 in Neuropsychopharmacology researchers at the University of Cambridge, in collaboration with the University of Copenhagen, recruited 66 healthy volunteers and divided them into two groups. One group (of 34) was given a placebo, while the other group (of 32) was given escitalopram, an SSRI known to be one of the best-tolerated by MDD patients.

After three weeks, both groups were asked to complete a series of tests to assess cognitive functions including learning, memory, executive function, reinforcement behavior, and decision-making.

Compared with the placebo group, the 32 volunteers who took escitalopram were found to be less responsive to reinforcement learning—less able to learn from the feedback from interactions with their surroundings.

(LifeSiteNews) — In an unexpected twist, the outspoken pro-vaccine cartoonist behind the famous comic strip Dilbert has admitted that when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccines he “lost” and those skeptical of the jab “won.”

“I’m going to tell you that … the anti-vaxxers appear to be right,” Scott Adams said in a video posted to YouTube on Sunday.

“Somebody who did not get vaccinated, got a little ‘omicron’ or maybe even a worse [strain] but recovered, now you’ve got natural immunity, can we all agree that that was the winning path?” the famed cartoonist inquired.

“The smartest, happiest people are the ones who didn’t get the vaccination, and they’re still alive!” Adams exclaimed.

In even more direct terms, Adams posted a link to the video on his Twitter page, writing, “The anti-vaxxers won. I lost.”

A Texas man released on a $2 bail for allegedly choking and kidnapping his former girlfriend was rearrested within days for continuing to threaten her, KHOU 11 reported.

Aubrey Taylor was arrested after allegedly holding his former girlfriend hostage, choking and terrorizing her on Dec. 27 in Harris County, Texas. He was offered a $2 bond — $1 for each count — during his court date on Jan. 13 and was rearrested on Jan. 18 for violating court orders and allegedly threatening the victim, according to KHOU 11.

“Repeat offender accused of beating woman gets $1 bond. Horrific,” said Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbot on Twitter. “Texans must feel safe in their communities. This session, we will eliminate the easy bail policies that allow dangerous criminals back onto our streets.”

Facing mounting backlash from parents over decades of pressuring public school administrators to mainstream explicit sexuality and transgender ideology in the classroom, the LGBT lobby is increasingly turning to a new tactic: blaming the victim. Parents who would rather discuss sensitive topics such as sex, the definition of the family, and the number of genders with their children personally are "launching a culture war," said the leader of the nation's largest LGBTQ lobbying group, which encourages schools to begin teaching gender fluidity in preschool. She added that "it's essential that we get enough power" to enact her agenda of transgenderism, abortion, and critical race theory nationwide.

Kelley Robinson, who became president of the nation's largest LGBT lobbying group, the $46 million Human Rights Campaign (HRC), lashed out at legislation designed to safeguard parents' primary role as the educators of their children during a recent interview with El Pais. She took particular umbrage at the Parental Rights in Education law, signed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), which prohibits teachers from encouraging "classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity" before fourth grade. "In Florida, we are committed to protecting parents' right to be involved in their child's education, and we are proud to be leading the charge nationwide," said DeSantis, who won reelection in 2022 by a whopping 20 points

(LifeSiteNews) — A 14-year-old Virginia runaway was abandoned to a horrific fate of rape and human trafficking after government officials reportedly refused to return her to her home because her family allegedly didn’t support her transgender identity, according to a bombshell investigative report by the Daily Wire.

The report has already sparked legislative effort to ensure that no family is ever denied guardianship rights because of alleged “misgendering.”

Legal documents reviewed by the outlet indicate the girl had been adopted by her grandmother after the death of her father. Identified in records as “Sage,” the “[l]ong troubled” girl later wanted to be called “Draco” and treated as a boy.

Microsoft says it is making a "multiyear, multibillion dollar investment" in the artificial intelligence startup OpenAI, maker of ChatGPT and other tools that can write readable text and generate new images.

The tech giant on Monday described its new agreement as the third stage of a growing partnership with San Francisco-based OpenAI that began with a $1 billion investment in 2019. It didn't disclose the dollar amount for its latest investment.

The partnership positions Microsoft to sharpen its competition with Google in commercializing new AI breakthroughs that could transform numerous professions, as well as the internet search business.

OpenAI's free writing tool ChatGPT launched on Nov. 30 and has brought public attention to the possibilities of new advances in AI.

Seattle’s morgue is running out of room for bodies, which are piling up from fatal fentanyl overdoses, according to reports.

Space issues have become so acute at the Seattle-King County morgue in Washington state that local officials are considering keeping bodies on gurneys and partnering with local funeral homes for storage as stopgap measures.

“A key indication of just how bad things are … the medical examiner’s office is now struggling with the issue of storing bodies because the fentanyl-related death toll continues to climb,” Seattle-King County Public Health Director Dr. Faisal Khan said at a Board of Health meeting last week, according to KTTH radio.

“Obviously, they have finite space in the coolers they use, and that space in now being exceeded on a regular basis,” Khan said.

Joe Biden, as soon as he got to the White House, canceled a long list of border security programs implemented by President Trump, all of which together had effectively reduced the invasion by illegal aliens, some of them dangerous criminals, across the nation's southern border.

The border wall: gone. Remain in Mexico: gone. And a new push to legalize those who already had broken America's laws to enter.

The result was a magnet for millions more to come to America.

In fact, the Border Patrol was stopped from doing its job effectively. No longer were officers allowed to deal with the alien criminals as they had. They were tasked, more or less, with acting has travel guides to illegals aiming to move into the United States.

Steve Bannon may already be picking sides in a potential 2024 Republican presidential race between Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis.

This past weekend Bannon, the one-time close adviser and confidant of Trump, touted an appearance made by the Florida governor at a postseason NFL game. While praising who many in the GOP believe could be the next president, Bannon also expressed disdain towards his former boss closely unifying with Senator Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican.

On January 28, Trump will be joined by Graham and South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster at the Statehouse in Columbia, South Carolina, the Associated Press reported last week. It will be his first public campaign event and will include the unveiling of his leadership team in the state.

"I have no earthly idea why [Graham's] around [former] President Trump," Bannon said regarding Trump's campaign event on his War Room program. "He's a cancer. He is a cancer, that's metastasizing. President Trump's gotta be warned. There's nothing good that comes from having [Senate Minority Leader] Mitch McConnell's mini-me, the snake, Lindsey Graham around you at all."

Foreign policy expert Dr. Walid Phares says that the United States has an obligation to support Ukraine, but it should not allow the country to drag America into the war.

>>"We need to defend Ukraine, but not give all our decisions to the Ukrainian government because they could drag the United States into a war that the Russians may transform into a nuclear confrontation," Dr. Phares said on the Monday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show.

According to Dr. Phares, President Joe Biden does not seem to have any plans to stop the war between Russia and Ukraine that has been ongoing since last year.

>>"What we are living now are moments that are very similar to either World War One, World War Two, and way beyond the Cold War," he explained. "Why? Because there is no plan in the Biden administration to stop that war."

>>"Of course, we have a priority as a NATO member and as a defender of the free world to make sure that the Ukrainian state will not fall," he continued.

Dr. Phares said he believes the United States jumped too quickly to help Ukraine, without a plan.

The 23-year-old child of House Democrat Whip Katherine Clark was arrested over the weekend during an anti-police protest in Boston, officials and the congresswoman say.

>>"Last night, my daughter was arrested in Boston, Massachusetts. I love Riley, and this is a very difficult time in the cycle of joy and pain in parenting," Clark, whose district is just outside of Boston, tweeted Sunday. "This will be evaluated by the legal system, and I am confident in that process.

Clark's child was arrested on two counts – one in connection with spray painting a monument and the other for alleged assault.

The Boston Police Department said the protest occurred Saturday night in the city's Boston Common park.

The department said that while the defendant was being arrested, about 20 protesters surrounded the officers, verbally attacking them and stopping traffic. An officer was bloodied after being hit in the face during the arrest, the department also said.

Clark's child was arrested and charged with "assault by means of a dangerous weapon, destruction or injury of personal property and damage of property by Graffiti/Tagging," police said.

>>"Upon arrival officers observed an individual defacing the monument with spray paint. The tagging read 'NO COP CITY' and 'ACAB," according to police. (The abbreviation is an anti-police slogan short for "All Cops are Bast&%$s.")

The Police department identifies the suspect as Jared Dowell, 23, of Melrose, Massachusetts.

Prince Andrew is reportedly putting together a multi-million dollar legal fund for a court bid to force Virginia Giuffre, a woman who has accused the Duke of York of raping and sexually abusing her, to retract her claims.

The prince settled Giuffre's civil suit in February of 2022 for an undisclosed, but multi-million dollar, sum, according to Fox News. Giuffre had claimed that the sexual abuse occurred on three occasions while she was 17.

A "royal source" told The Sun that Andrew had faced pressure to settle the case so as to avoid casting a shadow over Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee and that King Charles III privately supported the Duke of York's efforts to clear his name.

>>"Andrew has always insisted he is innocent and finally wants to prove it in a US court. He was pressured into settling the case to avoid overshadowing the Platinum Jubilee and has paid a heavy price, personally and professionally," the source told the outlet.

>>"The King is happy for him to pursue this. As Head of State, he can't back him publicly, but Andrew is still his brother, and he wants the best for him," the unnamed individual continued.
