    KSBY ^ | Mar 15, 2023 Maggie Cruz, 36, says she was a child born from rape. Now, she's fighting back to right
    Maggie Cruz, 36, says she was a child born from rape. Now, she's fighting back to right the wrongs she says her mother faced. Cruz filed a lawsuit on behalf of her mother, who is described as a severely developmentally disabled woman, against New York's Office of People with Developmental Disabilities. Cruz claims that while her mother was under the state's care in 1985, she was raped by a caretaker. Cruz alleges that the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities failed to report the rape or "seriously" investigate her mother's pregnancy. The lawsuit says Cruz was able to positively identify...
  • Uniting Trump and DeSantis is Our Only Chance to Save America: Put Your Egos Aside Because if we Lose in 2024, We May Never Win Again

    I’m no dreamer. I always face reality. Former President Donald Trump and Gov. Ron DeSantis don’t especially like each other. They are two competitive, mega-successful leaders. They both have big egos (well earned). They both believe they should be the one to save America. But so what? Former Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush didn’t especially like each other in 1980. But they united for the good of the GOP and the country. That gave Reagan two landslide victories, and Bush followed as president. That’s the ticket to save America today: UNITY. With the GOP divided and Democrats in...

    This isn’t news to anyone who has been following the pot business in California. Not the “legal one” which proved to be a mostly worthless boom up there with cryptocurrency. Just ask Med Men which wanted to be the Apple of drugs. The illegal one though is increasingly looking like it’s Made in China even when it’s grown in America.Mexican cartels have a long history of importing, growing and redistributing illicit cannabis in the United States. But Chinese investors, owners and workers have emerged in recent years as a new source of funding and labor for illegal marijuana production.What is...

    ZURICH—The chairman of Switzerland’s largest bank received an urgent call last week. On the other end were three top Swiss officials who delivered an ultimatum dressed up as a proposal. UBS Group AG UBS needed to rescue its failing rival, Credit Suisse CS Group AG. For any country, it would be a financial emergency. For Switzerland, the stakes verged on existential. Its economic model and national identity, cultivated over centuries, were built on safeguarding the world’s wealth. It wasn’t just about a bank. Switzerland itself needed rescuing. It was Thursday, barely 24 hours into an escalating banking crisis and Credit...

    LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed legislation Thursday codifying LGBTQ protections into the state’s civil rights law, permanently outlawing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity in the state. The legislation follows a state Supreme Court ruling last year that the Michigan’s Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act, which outlaws discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations and education on the basis of sex, extended to sexual orientation as well. Whitmer’s signature Thursday ensures that the high court’s ruling cannot be reversed in the future and goes one step further in extending protections to include gender identity...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sought to clean up comments where he called Russia's brutal war on Ukraine a 'territorial dispute' after drawing rebukes against 'isolationism' but praise from Fox News host Tucker Carlson. 'Well, I think it's been mischaracterized. Obviously, Russia invaded — that was wrong. They invaded Crimea and took that in 2014 — That was wrong,' DeSantis told Piers Morgan in an interview more than a week after his initial comments. He also rolled out tough talk against Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling him a 'war criminal' and saying he should be 'held accountable,' while dissing Russia as...

    The White House is warning that a proposed Ugandan bill that would outlaw identifying as LGBTQ+ could threaten US aid to the African country. John Kirby, coordinator of strategic communications for the National Security Council, said Wednesday that if the law passes, the Biden Administration would consider potential "repercussions...perhaps in an economic way." "This would be really unfortunate because so much of the economic assistance we provide Uganda is health assistance," Kirby said at a press briefing. "Hopefully it won't pass and we won't have to do anything." The United States provides more than $950 million in aid to Uganda...

    There is something odd going on at the southern border. Groups of Chinese nationals have been spotted as they try to make their way to the United States. The sudden uptick in the number of Chinese nationals making the trek to the border is not getting the press coverage it should. This is my shocked face. As usual, only one news organization has noticed.As you can see from this brief video, a small group of Chinese nationals is approached by a Fox News reporter at the southern border. He asks if they are from China and they respond that they...
