Australia may have just backdoored your mobile phone

A really bad new law in Australia gives police the right to force companies like Apple to 'backdoor', or create encryption circumvention alternatives, in all their products. The issue has been controversial in the U.S. for a long time, and spiked in 2016 after the mass shooting in San Bernardino. It's unclear how the new Australian law will impact things outside of Australia, but it's possible that your phone security will soon be impacted by laws like this, wherever you are and whatever de...

Hogan … Tidley?: Trump’s A Big Fan Of Spokesman, Didn’t Know His Last Name

President Donald Trump has claimed in the past to have “one of the great memories of all time.” Well … decide for yourself. The New York Times reported earlier this month that “sometimes, with aides,” President Donald Trump refers to National Security Adviser John Bolton as “Mike Bolton.” And on Tuesday, CNN reported yet another instance of the President’s less-than-total recall. In a report on the White House press shop, the network said Trump had once referred to White House deputy press se...

Why the media lynched the Covington kids (and why they’ll do it again)

Why the media lynched the Covington kids (and why they’ll do it again) No one following the news could have missed the media’s misguided hysteria over students from Covington Catholic High School allegedly surrounding and taunting an American Indian activist. However, not only was the erroneous feeding frenzy – which included incitement to violence against minors – predictable, but its repetition is inevitable. On Saturday, a story went viral that the prev...

Rudy Has Been All Over The Map On Trump-Cohen Moscow Project Talks

Rudy “truth isn’t truth” Giuliani was at it again over the holiday weekend. In at least five interviews with the press over a two-day period, Giuliani made confusing and often contradictory statements while attempting to spin reports that President Trump and Michael Cohen were in contact about constructing a Trump Tower Moscow in the months leading up to the 2016 election. Initially, Giuliani was dispatched to crow over the special counsel’s unusual decision to discredit a BuzzFeed article re...

Embattled Trump Inaugural Committee Failed To Disclose Key Finances To IRS

President Trump’s inaugural committee failed to disclose to the IRS how much money it received in ticket revenue, TPM has found after reviewing the group’s tax filings, a failure that tax experts find perplexing.  The Trump inaugural committee’s failure to identify the revenue it generated from the sale of tickets and other perks broke with the practice of previous inaugural committees. In doing so, the tax return that the committee filed with the IRS obscured a key metric of how it raised its...

Latvia opens up its KGB files and names 4,000+ "informants," many of whom claim they were framed

When Latvia attained independence in 1991, the retreating KGB left behind two sacks and two briefcases containing indexed records of the secret informants who had been paid to turn in their neighbors for offenses including anti-Kremlin activism and watching pornography. After decades of deliberation, the Latvian Parliament voted to release the contents of the bags, naming 4,141 KGB informants, many of whom are still alive, and vigorously deny any involvement with the KGB; also named in the ...

Giuliani backtracks on comments Trump sought Moscow deal throughout 2016

U.S. President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani backtracked on Monday from earlier comments that Trump pursued a business deal to erect a tower bearing his name in Moscow throughout 2016, saying his statements "were hypothetical and not based on conversations I had with the President." Giuliani told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that Trump may have continued to pursue the project and had discussions about it with his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, until as late as October or No...

GOP Rep: ‘Some Americans’ Think The GOP ‘Condones Racism’

Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) wrote in an USA Today op-ed published Sunday that “some Americans” think the Republican Party “condones racism.” Hurd, the son of a black father and a white mother, wrote in the op-ed that “it is unfortunate that more than 50 years after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s death, the House of Representatives, a body that I have the honor of serving in, had to have a vote condemning white supremacy in response to the idiotic comments of one of our own.” Those “idiotic comments” ...

Why charter schools are the flashpoint for the LA teachers' strike

When teachers from the largest school district in America walked off the job this week, they were not campaigning for wages: rather, they were demanding smaller classes; more librarians, counselors, aides and special-ed teachers; and to rein in the Charter school movement, and that last demand is the key to understanding the whole thing. Charter schools were developed in the wake of the Brown v Board of Ed decision, which found that racially segregated public schools were illegal; charter s...
