  • White House: Transferring Internet control is limited government

    The White House mocked GOP nominee Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz for trying to prevent the Commerce Department from transferring technical oversight of the Internet to an international body. "It doesn't withstand scrutiny," President Obama's spokesman Josh Earnest said on Thursday. "It also strikes me as a curious position for a self-described small government conservative to shut down the government to ensure that the federal government can continue to control the Internet," Earnest said of Cruz. "It doesn't make any sense." Cruz is trying to stop the multi-year transition that will leave the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and...
  • Yes ICANN Can. Downplay O's Internet Givaway at Your Peril [aw!m vanity]

    09/02/2016 8:27:11 AM PDT · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 10 replies
    Professor Jeremy Rabkin is concerned about the Internet Givaway, but he attempts to 'sooth the sheeple' with his Weekly Standard article "ICANN CAN'T". But wait ... then he backs up most of my warnings. The professor also suggests an international oversight system modeled after the World Bank or the IMF. [Creepy, right?] For those who don't know it: Obama is committing an impeachable High Crime -- he's illegally refusing to renew a contract that restricts ICANN to federal control. We lose control THIS MONTH -- September 30. And people are too confused to get angry about it. "ICANN CAN'T" started...
  • Another Mac-specific malware pops up, but Apple's Gatekeeper still prevents infection

    A second piece of Mac-specific malware has been discovered this week, one that could expose the passwords stored in the macOS Keychain. But once again, Apple's Gatekeeper security — when properly configured — will block the attack from succeeding. Researchers at security firm ESET have been examining a new strain of OS X malware from an unknown source, and have published a breakdown of the so-called "OSX/Keydnap" package. The malware is distributed as a .zip compressed archive, containing the package disguised as a text file or JPG graphic with accompanying icon. However, the file name has a trailing space, which...
  • Apple's Gatekeeper Bypassed Again

    Back in September, Synack security researcher Patrick Wardle disclosed a nasty issue with Apple's nefarious-app stopping Gatekeeper system in OS X. While the software is great at stopping malware-infected apps that users have downloaded from the bowels of the internet, it did have a flaw: a signed app could, upon launch, initiate an unsigned program if it resided in the same directory. Because the end user is never aware that this second application is launching, it's a great way to infect a computer. As a responsible researcher, Wardle informed Apple and got a security update as a result. That should...
  • White House Counsel Robert Bauer: Architect of IRS Abuse? (Gov. Palin especially singled out)

    When the FBI finally fires up its criminal investigation of the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups, there is one person the special agent in charge better be sure to interview — former White House Counsel Robert Bauer. The FBI may discover the whole IRS mess leads through the land of campaign finance “reform” and an obsession with speech regulation, an obsession shared by Bauer. Any criminal investigation identifies for further scrutiny those with motive, opportunity, and means, and Bauer deserves no quarter from FBI investigators on those three counts. The Crimes Without any doubt, crimes were committed by IRS...
  • Cedar Point's new GateKeeper roller coaster one wild and winged ride

    When the two-minute, 40-second flight is done, riders will have traveled 4,164 feet, at speeds of up to 67 mph and flipped over six times. It's the longest, fastest winged coaster in the world, with the most inversions and biggest drop. Early fliers were thrilled with the perspective. “It's an experience like a bird,” said Susan Shick, of Fairview Park, a Cleveland school teacher and secretary of the American Coaster Enthusiasts. “I just love it.” Engineers from Swiss firm Bolliger & Mabillard modeled some of the $30 million coaster's key features after stunt-pilot moves, including an Immelmann roll – an...
  • Eric Holder and the Obama administration's omerta on Islam and terrorism

    Fox ^ | 5/1/13 | Michael Goodwin
    It is a sad sight to watch a man grapple with a world that fails to meet his expectations. Unless that man is Eric Holder. Then it is simply infuriating. The attorney general, warped by his own prejudice, is confused because his fellow citizens are better people than he imagines. Holder sees white bigots around every corner, and can’t handle the truth that very few Americans actually hate Muslims. So, like Elmer Fudd hunting “wascally wabbits,” Holder’s shots usually backfire. His Monday speech to the Anti-Defamation League was a classic case of twisted thinking. With his FBI fumbling a chance...

    Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., told MSNBC’s Al Sharpton Wednesday night she was “infuriated” during Sen. Rand Paul’s questioning of Sec. Hillary Clinton and even left the hearing room. “When I heard him say those words, I walked out of the hearing room, and listened to him from behind the stage, because I was so infuriated at what that man said,” Ms Boxer said. Mr Paul said it was “inexcusable” for the State Department to ignore the Benghazi cables. “Had I been president at the time, and I found that you did not read the cables from Benghazi, you did not...
  • Fox News Decided Not To Cover The Koran Burning And CNN Followed Suit

    CNN's own media watchdog, Howard Kurtz, points out that his network only announced it would not broadcast pictures of the Terry Jones Koran-burning after Fox News already made the same call hours earlier. Kurtz: When the Baltimore Sun's David Zurawik reported at 2:16 Thursday that Fox would show no pictures of the planned Koran-burning in Gainesville, it was the only network taking that position. The others had told TV Newser that they would cover it like any other news story, with no hint that the footage might be withheld. The only other major news organization promising not to transmit pictures...

    Amongst the many venerables, blesseds and saints, some were assigned as gatekeepers in their respective communities. One such gatekeeper was Father Solanus Casey was a man who found God through the Catholic faith as a Capuchin Friar who ministered to the needs of all God's children, of all denominations and faiths.  God bestowed upon Father Solanus the ability to administer the divine gifts of healing. After his ordination in 1904, Fr. Solanus spent 20 years in New York, Harlem, and Yonkers. In 1924 he was assigned to St. Bonaventure Monastery in Detroit where he worked for 20 years. Fr. Solanus spent his...

    Nearly one-third of families headed by illegal aliens have children who are U.S. citizens, according to a new study that also found that since the 1990s, more foreigners have entered the U.S. illegally than legally. "The large number of U.S. citizen children born to parents with no legal status highlights one of the thorniest dilemmas in developing policies to deal with the unauthorized population," said Roberto Suro, director of the Pew Hispanic Center, which produced the report based on the 2004 Current Population Survey, a project of the Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As Congress and President...

    snip 'Huge financial burden' Starting in October 1994, Gatekeeper brought new rows of fencing, sophisticated surveillance technology and hundreds of additional Border Patrol agents here. This and similar enforcement strategies at ports of entry in Texas and Arizona are largely responsible for the Border Patrol's annual budget being increased from about $361 million in 1993 to $1.2 billion this year. Much of the increase has gone toward salaries. Border Patrol agents, a relatively meager force of 3,960 in 1993, now number more than 11,000 nationwide. Until recently, more than one-fifth were stationed in San Diego. Locally, Gatekeeper quickly deterred border...
  • U.S. could be model gatekeeper for Israel

    As many pious, civil rights- minded people have noted, constructing fences to cage people in is ''inhumane.'' As some have editorialized, it is even ''racist'' and creates an ''apartheid'' state. No wonder Israel is so criticized. After all, what kind of country would construct high walls, ditches and trenches and use sophisticated surveillance and armed border patrols to keep two people divided? Oh, that's right, we do. Specifically, we maintain a 2,000-mile fortress with Mexico. Israel's 300-mile planned divide is puny in comparison. Neither is wrong. Both work. As the Department of Justice reported in 1999, after we increased border...

They include: AN underground chemical weapons facility at the southern end of the Jadray Peninsula in Baghdad; A SCUD assembly area near Ramadi. The missiles come from North Korea; TWO underground bunkers in Iraq's Western Desert. These contain biological weapons. William Tierney, a former...
