    Tim Cook and Apple is getting a whole lot of free publicity over something that is blown way out of proportion. And now they’ve made it political.

    All the law enforcement wants to be able to do is to keep trying to obtain the password with out the operating system locking them out permanently after the amount of tries has been exhausted.

    One phone that belonged to a terrorist.

      The whiny left is all over this, of course. Because – horror of horrors! – the govt wants the same thing concerning the phone of a drug lord in NY. Slippery slope! Every iPhone will be opened!

      Good grief – are all locks forever endangered because probable cause gives law enforcement the right to get a locksmith? Or access to a safe deposit box?

      The case is so compelling for the San Bernardino couple: they purposely put the lock on two weeks before the shootings. If there ever was a compelling interest to see what’s on that phone, this is it. This is how the system is supposed to work. You get a warrant for probable cause, you get access.

      The govt does not care how many cat photos you have on your effing phone. This is in the public interest, for God’s sake.

        I want Traitor Snowden to be arrested and brought to justice.

        I want Tim Scott to unlock the phone of these monsters. Pure and simple.

      Actually the phone was a work phone and belonged or belongs to the Sand Bernadino Health Depaartment.
      Which has already given consent to the FBI to hack it and get the info from it.
      So any issues to do with privacy and the 4th Amendment don’t enter into it.

      If she had identified herself as a BS supporter instead of a BLM activist, it probably wouldn’t have gotten the amount of air time that it’s gotten. This played right into the media’s anti-Hillary agenda.

      They used her tactic to Gin up a #WhichHillary, Dishonest & disgusting. It was designed to call her a Witch. CNN & Co rushed out to use her to attack HRC. IMO, truly despicable. Deception is Not always rewarded. ONLY Time will tell. The #BlackLivesMatter Group need to make sure that those using their Name are not abusing their Cause.
      This vent was it not at a private Home? How did she get in a Fund Raise event, uninvited?

    Is RNC in a “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” mode?

    Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus has begun stating in private meetings that the party has sway over its at times unwelcome front-runner because it has tools Trump will need to use to win a general election — voter data and field, digital and media operations that a nominee typically inherits from the party infrastructure.

    Dangling access to these resources, Priebus thinks he can help steer Trump toward partywide policy goals and away from the inflammatory rhetoric that Republican officials see as divisive and dangerous, especially outside of the primary, according to two Republican sources who have spoken with the RNC chairman.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham admitted that Senate Republicans are obstructing Obama’s Supreme Court nominee because they are still upset that Democrats changed the filibuster rules in 2013.

    After Senate Republicans had driven obstruction to a historically high level that had ground the Senate to a halt, then Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) and Senate Democrats used the “nuclear option” to change the filibuster rules on presidential nominations, but the change did not include legislation or Supreme Court nominations.

    There is probably some truth to what Sen. Graham said. Senate Republicans do see this as payback for filibuster rules change, but the overwhelming reason for the obstruction is that the Republicans don’t want to let President Obama appoint another Supreme Court justice to the bench. At least, the Republicans are coming closer to admitting that what they are doing has nothing to do with anyone that President Obama might nominate.

    Hi All

    Just a quick note to say that we are having a phone bank at my house in 30 minutes. I have 8 folks coming to the house and 6 folks calling from home. We will be calling and inviting voters who signed a petition in support of PBO to attend a rally in their area.

    If any of you have cell phones and 2 hours between now and Tuesday evening, please send me a note and I can help you get the info you need to make these calls.

    They are very easy calls – since everyone on the list has already shown they support the President already.

    I could use some help calling into AZ. Nothing would make me happier than to see Flake and McCain feel pressure on this issue.

    Please send an email to whatisworking@gmail.com if you can help

    Sandra Bland was found dead in her jail cell last July…But there were at least four other black women who died in jail that month.

    One of them was Joyce Curnell, who was arrested for unpaid court fines. Now, seven months after her body was found, her family is taking legal action against the jail’s medical contractor. They say Curnell died from water deprivation.

    In January, 28 hours after entering a Kentucky detention center, a 16-year-old black teen was found dead in her cell. Video shows that the employee charged with monitoring Gynna McMillen every 15 minutes failed to do so. And when McMillen was unresponsive during the times she was checked on, the employee didn’t ensure that she was fine. McMillen was found dead when someone came to get her for a court hearing.

    Staff waited nine minutes to call 911 and 11 minutes before attempting CPR.

    Cruz placed his hand close to his heart under his jacket during the singing of the National Anthem, akin to oh I dunno Napoleon.

    How Complex. Very telling.
