  • Apple Unlocked iPhones for the Feds 70 Times Before

    A 2015 court case shows that the tech giant has been willing to play ball with the government before—and is only stopping now because it might ‘tarnish the Apple brand.’ Apple CEO Tim Cook declared on Wednesday that his company wouldn’t comply with a government search warrant to unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino killers, a significant escalation in a long-running debate between technology companies and the government over access to people’s electronically-stored private information. But in a similar case in New York last year, Apple acknowledged that it could extract such data if it wanted...

    While racist xenophobes like Rudy Giuliani, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner and self-hating xenophobes like Ben Carson may not realize it yet, there is a special place reserved for them in the Land of Eternal Torment. You see, one day, many, many white people who have been duped by the anti-black coded messages that these and other Repugnican politicians throw out like swill to the swine may just come to their senses and condemn these demagogues for just what they are greedy liars and swindlers who would just as soon see...

  • Slowdown in Global Warming is Apparently a Mirage (only after you "fix" the data)

    While the planet's surface temperatures over the past century have risen to unprecedented levels, records have shown a slowdown in the pace of warming over the past 15 years. Scientists have proposed several theories of natural climate variability and heat redistribution that may have contributed to the slowdown to varying degrees. A new study, however, suggests that the slowdown itself may be a mirage the result of temperature records that have considerably underestimated the pace of warming since 1997. The global coverage of temperature measurements is incomplete, and that can cause biases in temperature records research datasets deal...

    When Thanksgiving 2013 is over, will Americans remember it as the holiday when the Obama administration body-snatched their friends and family and turned them into Obamacare robots? Maybe it happened to your own loved ones. Maybe Cousin Sue brought her favorite cranberry Jell-O mayonnaise salad but when she opened her mouth she sounded like Jay Carney on a roll.

    Its been 35 years since 918 people, including 257 children, died on Nov. 18, 1978, at the Peoples Temple massacre in Jonestown. The mass murder inside the South American jungle commune in Guyana was engineered by Jim Jones, a murderous cult leader, and was the only time in American history a member of Congress, Leo Ryan, D-Calif., was killed in the line of official duty. Most of the victims were forced to commit suicide by drinking a fatal cocktail of poisoned punch spiked with a Valium tranquilizer. In the days that followed the slaughter of the innocents, Jonestown became a...

    Speaking from the White House Rose Garden on Monday morning, President Obama addressed the website glitches and delays that have plagued the initial rollout of the Affordable Care Act, declaring the product to be good and reminding his audience that the healthcare law is not just a website. Since its October 1 rollout, the online registry for the Obamacare health exchange has been beset by website glitches, long wait times, and clunky programming. You probably heard the new website where people can apply for health insurance and browse and buy affordable plans in most states hasnt worked as smoothly as...

In what may be characterized as the sincerest form of flattery, video documentarian Annabel Park weeks ago created the Coffee Party Movement. Despite its relatively brief existence, it has already garnered significant media attention, most notably in recent articles by the New York Times and Washington Post. Over the weekend, an open letter was addressed to Park by a member of the Tea Party movement (this writer) welcoming civility and inclusiveness in political discourse, a nod...

    LONDON (Reuters) - The patio heaters warming drinkers and diners on the pavements of northern Europe are also warming the planet's climate and should be banned, according to a European Parliament report that could be adopted on Thursday. Environmentalists argue that heaters not only pump heat directly into the atmosphere but also climate-damaging CO2, while owners of pubs and bars say they need them to help retain customers driven outside by smoking bans. "Patio heaters are scandalous because they are burning fossil fuels in the open sky, so producing vast quantities of CO2 with very little heat benefit," said European...

    Turn on common sense Americans' dogged dislike of compact fluorescent bulbs defies reason Saturday, May 5, 2007 3:33 AM It has the makings of a titanic clash: the marketing muscle of Wal-Mart vs. the entrenched views of the American consumer, particularly the female sort. The company has vowed to convert at least 100 million households to compact fluorescent light bulbs, which benefit their users by consuming 75 percent less electricity, lasting 10 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs and saving $30 over the life of each bulb. The big picture is just as impressive: Over its lifetime, one bulb generates...

    Few will know this genetic truth, because the 5-year-old's parents and school administrators have agreed that it's in his best interest to blend in as a female. Mental health professionals have diagnosed Pat - not his real name - with gender dysphoria, a condition in which a person believes that he or she is the opposite gender. After two years of examination, they have determined that he is not simply effeminate or going through a phase. "Gender dysphoria can take place during a fetus' development in the womb," said noted gender specialist and sexologist Marilyn Volker, Ph.D., of Miami. While...

    Amnesty and Betrayal By William Norman Grigg The New American, Febuary 9, 2004 President Bush's proposed immigration reform package is a shocking betrayal of our nation's sovereignty, culture and economy. It must not be allowed to pass. Bill Clinton uttered countless deceptive words during his eight-year occupancy of the White House, but perhaps none captured the essence of his slippery dishonesty better than these:'It depends on what the meaning of the word is' is. In defending his proposed amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, George W. Bush is striving to set a new record for brazen presidential dishonesty. This plan...

The brutality of the war against President Bush is unprecedented.

Attacks on his performance on the war on Iraq, on his performance on hurricane Katrina, on his appointments of judges, and on...

CNN business anchor Lou Dobbs has been committing the journalistic equivalent of biting someone's ear off in public. The host of "Lou Dobbs Tonight" has transmogrified from serious reporter to hysterical mountebank over one pet issue: foreign job outsourcing. He has joined the chorus decrying the trend of U.S. businesses moving some operations offshore to economize on labor. So what's the problem? Doesn't business have a responsibility to enhance profits by using resources efficiently?...

In a working paper for the U.S. National Bureau of Economic Research, two International Monetary Fund staffers discover no evidence that job growth in Britain is slower in those sectors with a quicker pace of service outsourcing. They also find no link between job losses and outsourcing in the United States because outsourcing, by boosting firms' efficiency,...

    There they go again. Devoid of ideas, running from the record of failure on the economy and national security, President Bush and his campaign are going negative again, trying to label John Kerry rather than level with Americans. Now the refrain is that Kerry and Edwards are too ''liberal'' for America. Democrats tend to duck when such charges are leveled. Clinton dressed up as a ''New Democrat,'' trying to separate himself rhetorically. Reformers now call themselves ''progressives,'' trying to avoid the label. Frankly, I think it's time for people to stand up. Think about it: A conservative Christian is a...

The filmmaker, who won a 2002 Oscar for Bowling for Columbine, delivers a scalding rebuke of President George Bush from one end of the reel to the other. Beginning with the stolen presidential election in 2000 and shouts of Hail to the Thief during Pres. Bushs inauguration parade, the film follows the yellow brick road of propaganda that...

Evans The popularity of home schooling, while not significant in terms of the number of children involved, is attracting growing attention from the media, which create the impression that a "movement" is underway. Movement or not, there are compelling reasons to oppose home teaching both for the sake of the children involved and for society. Home schooling is an extension of the misguided notion that "anyone can teach." That notion is simply wrong. Recently, some of our best and brightest college graduates, responding to the altruistic...

    What Are Black Helicopters? Black Helicopters (BH) are not just helicopters with a black paint-job as you may have been told. They are, in fact, autonomous agents -- lifeforms -- created by New World Order agencies via nanobiotechnology. Their purpose is to spy on the activities of North Americans in order to gather tactical information and discover "subversives" who are not bowing to the will of the Liberati's UN-backed Federal Government. Furthermore, when the NWO Invasion takes place in the not-to-distant future, they will round-up citizens for internment in concentration camps or carry out the elimination of the more vocally...

    For those who have paid attention, it is obvious that Juanita Broaddrick is a compelling witness. She lived a nightmare that she always wanted to be private but that became public. Juanita never wanted to testify. That is why she made the initial mistake of signing an affidavit that came from Bruce Lindsey, who was quite a behind the scenes fixer and apparently also an affidavit mill. Talk about a lowlife with no conscience. When she had to testify under oath, Juanita told the truth as she lived it. She came forward reluctantly. She had government contracts that could be...

First: Those who thought it a bad idea for America to launch what was the moral equivalent of unilateral war on Iraq have nothing to apologize for. It's necessary to say this because the polls -- in America and elsewhere -- have been showing more and more support for the American effort. Are all these people changing their minds about the rightness of the war? Some of them, no doubt. But what seems a more reasonable conclusion is not that...
