Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez vastly overstates the number of 'destitute' Americans

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez vastly overstates the number of 'destitute' Americans While pressing her agenda to expand means-tested welfare programs, Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is claiming that the federal government’s poverty statistics vastly undercount the number of Americans who are “destitute.” In reality, the exact opposite is true, because those statistics omit a broad range of government benefits, charity, and unreported income. ...

The FBI doesn't need Apple to give it a backdoor to encryption, because it already has all the access it needs

Once again, the FBI is putting pressure on Apple to help them break into the phone of a mass shooter. And once again, Apple has been largely resistant to the effort. Which is good, because a government having control over a private company that gives them secret backdoor access into people's personal technology devices is an authoritarian wet dream waiting to happen. It also doesn't matter anyway because — as Reuters pointed out this week — Apple already buckled under FBI pressure a few years an...

Chiefs G.M. fell for Patrick Mahomes during a blowout loss

Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach had liked Patrick Mahomes for some time. The day it turned into love might have been during a 66-10 loss to Iowa State in 2016.

GOP Sen. Mike Braun: 'It'll be interesting to see' how Senate Republicans react to Bolton's bombshell

Most of the Sunday political talk shows had already aired by the time The New York Times reported that former National Security Adviser John Bolton reveals first-hand information on President Trump linking Ukraine military aid to Kyiv investigating Joe Biden and other Democratic targets in his upcoming book.
