Security issues can be difficult to clean

The stakes are too high for Apple to spin the iPhone exploits. T.C. Sottek – “Apple attacks Google’s credibility instead of focusing on a vulnerable population.” This is a case of downplaying a crisis that isn’t comfortable. When it comes to security, all computers are vulnerable and any breaches found should bring to mind the idea that many others that have not been found probably exist. Apple also has China problems and is conflicted by these breaches appearing to be a part of Chinese persecution of the Uighur community.

Chick-fil-A opens first international store as eager customers step over bodies of ‘die-in’ protestors. Thomas Lifson – “There is something magical and quietly hilarious about the ability of a fast-food chain peddling chicken to arouse deep outrage from the alienated few and yet record-setting patronage by the greater public.”

“Yesterday, Chick-fil-A ventured beyond the borders of the United States for the very first time, opening the first of 15 planned stores in the Greater Toronto Area, and militant homosexuals as well as animal righties attempted to obstruct customers, some of whom started lining up as early as 6:30 AM, from entering the store.

People observing the tenets of their religion are targeted. How is this not religious bigotry?

The display of self-righteous anger backfired, as customer calmly stepped over and around the bodies attempting to block access and entered to enjoy delicious chicken sandwiches and nuggets.

I recall that something similar happened when the company opened its first store in Manhattan; Mayor deBlasio fumed, protestors gathered, but so did crowds of customers, and after the protestors went away, the crowds continued to mob the store.

Perhaps frustrated by their ineffectiveness, protestors escalated: … The craziness of damaging property and spewing obscenity to “defend love” is obvious to most people.

John Dean: The James Comey of Watergate. Geoff Shepard – “Both are media darlings in spite of outrageous professional conduct.”

“Both Comey and Dean were political lawyers. While holding presidential appointments to positions of extraordinary importance, each intentionally misled his president — and then lied about it.

Both played critical roles in worsening political scandals that were largely of their own making.

Each was less than candid in meetings with his respective president.

Each quickly became a critical actor in an all-out effort to end a presidency.

Both received exceptionally lenient treatment from federal prosecutors.

Both have been feted at congressional hearings chaired by Democrats and are now featured regularly in friendly appearances on CNN and MSNBC, where any questioning about their own prior actions is strictly off-limits.

Each man quickly wrote a bestselling book, spinning his own disgraceful actions in the best possible light. …

Astonishingly, both now teach courses on ethics and professional responsibility, seemingly in the belief their conduct was exemplary to other members of the legal profession.

Details about all of these matters, Comey’s and Dean’s, are easily ascertainable by journalists interested in objective reporting. What is so disturbing is the realization that the mainstream media must really still hate President Nixon to continue to make someone like John Dean their hero — and the same is obviously true for President Trump with James Comey.

Is Chicago a Gun Crime Sanctuary City? Daniel John Sobieski – “Hypocrisy has a new poster child for what Lightfoot fails to note is that what is important is not where the weapons came from, but what happened to the gun criminals and gangbangers afterword,
