    Apple publicly fought the FBI in 2016 over issues related to privacy, encryption, and an iPhone used by a terrorist. Texts between FBI employees released earlier this week give a peek into how some agents saw the battle. In February 2016, as Apple and the FBI were quietly sparring over how to unlock an iPhone owned by one of the perpetrators of the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, two FBI officials unrelated to the case back in Washington DC were privately discussing their distaste for Apple CEO Tim Cook. "And what makes me really angry about that Apple...

    First District Supervisor candidate Angela Valles has condemned the "dumping" of Syrian refugees into Victorville, saying she would sue the federal government and seek to cut off refugee welfare benefits after it was discovered 23 Syrian immigrants have resettled in the city this year. Valles also accused her opponent, San Bernardino County Supervisor Robert Lovingood, of being "either oblivious to the placement of unvetted Syrian refugees in our community" or actively covering it up.

A Cambridge computer scientist cloned iPhone memory chips, allowing him an unlimited number of attempts to guess a passcode. The work contradicts a claim made by the FBI earlier this year that this approach would not work. The FBI made the claim as it sought access to San Bernardino gunman Syed Rizwan Farook's iPhone. CHEAP TRICK Farouk and his wife killed 14 people in the California city last December before police fatally shot them. The FBI believed his iPhone 5C contained information about collaborators, but...

    On the heels of the San Bernardino massacre, where terrorists entered a gun-free zone to slaughter their unarmed victims, California Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown signed legislation making it more difficult for law-abiding Americans to defend themselves. In the liberal mind, that doesn’t matter. It’s “gun violence”, not gang violence or terrorist violence. So let’s pass laws that would not have prevented San Bernardino: The Democratic governor signed six bills Friday requiring gun owners to give up magazines holding more than 10 rounds and to undergo a background check before they can purchase ammunition, among other measures… Read more: http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2016/07/california_bites_the_bullet_with_background_checks.html#ixzz4Dk9BAJbu Follow...
