 Former NSA Chief Skeptical of FBI's Backdoor Demand   When news broke last week that the FBI was demanding a backdoor into the iPhone of a San Bernardino terrorist, we cautioned that doing so wasn't just a case of breaking into just this one phone this one time. The FBI was really asking two things: a backdoor to iPhones in general, and a legal precedent for using it. Apple is fighting the demand.
          They're not alone. No less than Michael Hayden, the former chief of both the NSA and CIA as well as a retired four-star Air Force general, isn't convinced the government is right. "In this specific case," he said, "I'm trending toward the government, but I've got to tell you in general I oppose the government's effort, personified by FBI Director Jim Comey. Jim would like a backdoor available to American law enforcement in all devices globally. And, frankly, I think on balance that actually harms American safety and security, even though it might make Jim's job a bit easier in some specific circumstances."
          Indeed, the government has more phones for Apple to crack.
          Hayden also said rather honestly, "Look, I used to run the NSA, okay? Backdoors are good. Please, please, Lord, put back doors in, because I and a whole bunch of other talented security services around the world — even though that back door was not intended for me — that backdoor will make it easier for me to do what I want to do, which is to penetrate. ... But when you step back and look at the whole question of American security and safety writ large, we are a safer, more secure nation without backdoors [because] a lot of other people would take advantage of it."
          And speaking of precedents, Apple CEO Tim Cook noted, "If a court can ask us to write this piece of software, think about what else they could ask us to write. Maybe it's an operating system for surveillance. Maybe it's the ability for law enforcement to turn on the camera. I mean I don't know where this stops." In other words, what is the limiting principle for government power?
          Perhaps that's one reason why Apple's already developing a way to thwart the workaround the FBI seeks...  -The Patriot Post

 Rick Perry Cleared of Governing While  Republican   After costing him time, money, effort and possibly tarnishing his presidential bid, former Texas Governor Rick Perry on Wednesday was finally cleared of charges that he abused his office when he threatened a veto and then issued it in 2013. His real crime? "Governing While Republican."
          Perry said he would veto a bill funding the state's Public Integrity Unit if its head, then-Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, didn't step down. Why? Lehmberg had been arrested for driving with a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit, and she was so belligerent with police officers that they strapped her into a restraint chair and slipped a spit mask over her. When she refused to resign, Perry vetoed the bill.
          To a Democrat-influenced grand jury, Perry's actions of, well, governing, meant he coerced a public servant and abused his office, and they issued an indictment. But Judge P.J. Keller, who wrote the court's majority opinion dismissing the case, disagreed. "No law passed by the Legislature can constitutionally make the mere act of vetoing legislation a crime," Keller wrote, and the court system cannot "examine the motives behind the veto or second-guess the validity of a veto." Nevertheless, the frivolous prosecution did serve the Left's goal: to stall a strong conservative's political career. How much more support could the cowboy-boot wearing governor have generated if donors and voters weren't wary that the indictment would stick?

 When Hunters Leave Africa 
Last year, the bleedin' heart liberals lost their collective mind over the fact that dentist Walter Palmer shot and killed a lion named Cecil during a hunting trip to Zimbabwe. Big whoop. Hunters go to Africa. They kill animals, and the licensing fees help the conservation efforts on the continent. But thanks to the outcry, hunters are no longer booking trips to the African Savanna. Now, the place where "Cecil the Lion" was bagged and tagged is facing a bit of a lion problem. The lion population at Bubye Valley Conservancy has ballooned to more than 500 felines. Combined with a dry summer that caused the grassland to grow stunted, the lions are laying waste to the other animal populations. As a result, the conservancy is saying it might have to go out and kill 200 lions.           "The astronomical fees foreign hunters paid to shoot animals in Africa directly supported the continent's conservation efforts," wrote  The Truth About Guns' Nick Leghorn. "It was a mutually beneficial, self-sustaining system. Now that the hunters are gone, there isn't enough money to support Hwange National Park's operation and the ecosystem is out-of-whack. Lions will be killed, anyway, without any of hunting's enormous economic benefits."
          Furthermore, think of the economic loss to the region. Think of the lost jobs, the money not coming into the area because there are not the hunters willing to pay for lodging, food, transportation and guides. Anti-hunting groups had their field day, but they aren't going to be concerned about the effects of their rabid protesting.

19-Year-Old Jessica Chambers Burned to Death In Her Car Now the Mystery’s Finally Been Solved…
CONOR SWANBERG
.
.
{injo.com} ~ The grizzly murder of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers captured the nation in 2014 after she was burned alive in her car on a remote road in Mississippi... Firefighters and police officers found Jessica lying next to her burning car, barely alive, around 8pm. At the scene she was able to give them a name, but it would still take a long time before they figured out who committed the disturbing crime. Jessica was taken to a hospital where she succumbed to her burns, which covered 98% of her body. Her mother made it just in time to see her daughter before she died.     http://injo.com/2016/02/545262-man-finally-charged-with-the-murder-...

nObama Opens the Border to More STDs
Jon Feere
.
.
{gopusa.com} ~ In his first year in office, President nObama lifted an entry ban on foreigners with HIV. In his final year in office he will lift the entry ban on three more sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)... The president’s own Health and Human Services department says this guarantees more infections in the United States, proving once again that immigration is the defining issue for politicians like nObama. Increased immigration trumps all other concerns. First, some background. In 1993, a clause specifically designed to reduce the spread HIV/AIDS into the United States was added to the Immigration and Nationality Act. It passed the Senate with a vote of 76 to 23. It reads: Any alien who is determined in accordance with regulations prescribed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services to have a communicable disease of public health significance, which shall include infection with the etiologic agent for acquired immune deficiency syndrome [AIDS] … is inadmissible. He is once again breaking the law.        http://www.gopusa.com/?p=6128?omhide=true

The Ricketts family has been criticized before for its public participation in
conservative political causes
.
{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ Donald slump-Trump had some choice words earlier this week for the Ricketts family, who owns the Chicago Cubs, over their contributions to a super PAC that is running ads against him... But Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts said Wednesday his family is simply standing up for their beliefs. "It's a little surreal when Donald slump-Trump threatens your mom," Ricketts told reporters Wednesday during a press conference at spring training in Mesa, Ariz. "The fact is, whether it's my mom or dad on his Ending Spending stuff, or my sister on marriage equality or my brothers what they do, or what we do as a team, we're pretty much an open book," he said. "We stand up for what we believe in; we support the causes we think are important. That's what America should be." http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2584099

World Intellectual Property Organization director-general Francis Gurry

{cnsnews.com} ~ The head of a U.N. agency which gets a significant proportion of its budget from U.S. patent applicants transferred U.S.-origin computer equipment with dual-use potential to North Korea... and cracked down harshly on whistleblowers who sought to expose his behavior, U.S. lawmakers were told Wednesday. Despite the alleged actions and lawmakers’ earlier appeals, the nObama administration allowed Francis Gurry to be re-elected in 2014 for a new six-year term as director-general of the Geneva-based World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a joint hearing of three House Foreign Affairs subcommittees heard. The administration did so, a witness told the hearing, at the request of a close ally, Australia; Gurry, whose career at WIPO spans more than three decades, is believed to be the highest-ranking Australian in the U.N. system.       http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/patrick-goodenough/us-did-not-b...

Appellate Court Ruling Could Revive

{investigativeproject.org} ~ Rasmieh Odeh's claim that she was abused while in Israeli custody 45 years ago may yet be heard by a federal court in Detroit... The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursdayremanded her 2014 immigration fraud convictionback to district court to reconsider whether a psychologist's testimony about alleged post-traumatic stress is admissible. Odeh was convicted of bombing a Jerusalem grocery store and a British Consulate building for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) in 1969. The grocery store attack killed Hebrew University students Leon Kanner and Edward Joffe. She was set free after 10 years in a prisoner exchange and made her way to the United States. When she applied for naturalization as a United States citizen in 2004, she claimed she never had been arrested or convicted of a crime. At one point, she claimed she thought the questions only applied to her time in America. The immigration officer who interviewed Odeh testified that, as a rule, she asks applicants whether they ever were arrested or convicted "anywhere in the world." http://www.investigativeproject.org/5174/appellate-court-ruling-cou...

Bauer: 'No recess' for Senate
Chad Groening
.
.
{onenewsnow.com} ~ Concern is rising that President Barack nObama is trying to circumvent the U.S. Senate by making a recess appointment to the United States Supreme Court... nObama said last week that he would nominate a candidate for the Supreme Court while the Senate is in session — foregoing a recess appointment. A leading conservative activist and former presidential candidate argues that the Senate leadership needs to make sure that this attempt to capitalize on the situation does not happen. Bauer has some strong advice for the current Republican Senate Majority Leader, who he believes must do the job he was appointed to do.        http://www.onenewsnow.com/politics-govt/2016/02/25/bauer-no-recess-...

How nObamaCare Reduces 
Competition and Rations Care
 Michael Tennant
.
.
{thenewamerican.com} ~ The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was ostensibly enacted to protect average Americans from big insurance companies and to ensure that, as President Barack nObama put it, insurers “are limited in the ability to extract profits and deny coverage.”... But as is often the case with laws supposedly designed to benefit the “little guy,” nObamaCare has instead stimulated consolidation in the healthcare sector and rationing of care, according to a recent report from the American Action Forum (AAF), a center-right think tank in Washington, D.C. Until recently, most physicians maintained independent solo or small-group practices; few were employed by hospitals. Lately, however, hospitals — particularly those that had previously merged into local near-monopolies — “have been forming physician groups, which have in turn been buying up physician practices at a rapid rate,” wrote AAF’s Robert Book, a health economist. In addition, noted Book, “Hospital groups across the country have also started forming their own health insurance companies — either on their own, or as joint ventures with established insurance companies — with their own facilities and physicians as the main in-network providers.”   http://thenewamerican.com/usnews/health-care/item/22626-how-obamaca...

Will Britain Leave the European Union?
Steve Byas
.
.
{thenewamerican.com} ~ Great Britain will stage a national referendum on June 23 on whether to leave the European Union... British Prime Minister David Cameron has made it clear that he supports continued British membership in the EU, and admits that his efforts to win “concessions” from the EU’s 27 other member states are designed to make the EU more palatable to its opponents in his own country. Those concessions, however, are illusory and would not be legally binding. This is the clear position of Nigel Farage, a British member of the European Parliament, and the leader of Britain’s United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), who challenged European Council President Donald Tusk about the concessions Cameron hopes to win. http://thenewamerican.com/world-news/europe/item/22629-will-britain...

nObama-Zuckerberg's Plans: 
Slavery or Annihilation
 Erik Rush
.
{wnd.com} ~ I’m sure my readers were positively titillated by the buzz emanating from the Mobile World Congress Conference this week... What is the Mobile World Congress Conference, you ask, and why should anyone with the intelligence to navigate this publication care? Well, although the MWC conference is essentially a bunch of high-level computer geeks stroking each other’s egos, in another sense, the conference illustrated a juxtaposition of two very different future possibilities, neither of which is particularly pleasing. Over the last few years, mobile Internet surpassed desktop and laptop computers as the premier digital platform, so the computer industry in all its vastness is heavily invested in mobile technology. The Mobile World Congress is a creation of the Groupe Speciale Mobile (GSM), itself a creation of the Confederation of European Posts and Telecommunications (CEPT), the largest European telecommunications industry association.        http://www.wnd.com/2016/02/obama-zuckerbergs-plans-slavery-or-annih...

ISIS Stones Teen Girls To Death For “Being Teenagers”
 Rick Wells
.
.
{rickwells.us} ~ ISIS has once again proven that their manhood is highly suspect by preying upon those who are defenseless and much weaker, this time by brutally murdering two teenage girls... The atrocity took place on Tuesday in the city of Deir ez-Zor in eastern Syria. The murder was carried out execution style, through stoning, and with the “sanitizing” of a determination of guilt under their perpetual blanket of impunity and immunity, Islamic law. The girls, Hasna, 17, and Madiha, 16, were stoned to death after the barbarians determined they were guilty of committing adultery. Their ages were not mitigating factors under ISIS Sharia. Nothing stands in between these good old boys and a round of Allahu Akbars. Letthe fun begin. ARA News quoted a local media activist, Ahmed Ramadan, who said, “The execution took place in the Hamidiya district of Deir ez-Zor on Tuesday afternoon, where hundreds of people gathered to witness the stoning of the two young girls.”        http://rickwells.us/archives/26517

Donald slump-Trump relishes 
wrecking the GOP
 George F. Will
.
.
{washingtonpost.com} ~ Lyndon Johnson simply was exasperated. Barack nObama’s mischief was methodical.
.
Four days before the 1966 congressional elections, Johnson, asked about criticism from Richard Nixon, testily responded: “I do not want to get into a debate . . . with a chronic campaigner like Mr. Nixon.” Johnson’s disparagement endeared Nixon to Republican voters, thereby propelling him toward the presidency.
.
Four days before Saturday’s South Carolina primary, nObama improved Donald slump-Trump’s standing with Republicans by volubly deploring him and cannily placing him in the Republican mainstream: “He says in more interesting ways what the other Republican candidates are saying.” Not exactly.
.
Certainly not last week when slump-Trump said, “I like the nObamacare mandate.” He thereby disparaged one of conservatism’s greatest recent achievements — persuading five Supreme Court justices that the mandate is not justifiable as a regulation of interstate commerce, so the Constitution’s Commerce Clause is not an infinitely elastic empowerment of Congress.
.
[Danielle Allen: The moment of truth: We must stop slump-Trump]
.
slump-Trump was not saying “what the other candidates are saying” when last week he said: “Every single other Republican candidate is going to cut the hell out of your Social Security.” slump-Trump so relishes causing Republican wreckage that he went on to attack House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis.). Recalling the Democrats’ 2011 ad depicting a Ryan-like figure pushing an elderly woman in a wheelchair off a cliff, slump-Trump suggested that the ad was fair commentary on Ryan’s proposed entitlement reforms. slump-Trump’s plan for reforming entitlements probably is to get Mexico to pay for them, after it finances “The Wall.”
.
Many South Carolina evangelicals, like those in Iowa, showed, shall we say, Christian forgiveness toward slump-Trump, who boasts of his sexual athleticism, embraces torture and promises to kill terrorists’ families. Or perhaps these remarkable evangelicals think his myriad conversions-of-convenience his serial adjustments of his “convictions” in time for this campaign constitute being “born again.” This is an interesting interpretation of John 3:7.
.
As the Republican Party contemplates putting forward this florid face, the Democratic Party, clinging to Hilly Clinton like a shipwrecked sailor clinging to a spar, celebrates her Nevada achievement. ‘Twas a famous victory.
.
Trailing clouds of seediness sufficient already to have convinced 56 percent of Americans that she is neither honest nor trustworthy, Clinton won only 53 percent against an opponent who says that, after seven years of a Democratic presidency, America is a fetid swamp of rising inequality and multiplying injustices. Criticizing Bernie Sanders for criticizing nObama, Clinton promises continuity with an administration that according to a Gallup poll this month has convinced 71 percent of likely general election voters that America is on the wrong track.
.
[Five myths Donald slump-Trump tells about Donald slump-Trump]
.
Her Nevada triumph was sealed by African Americans, and she evidently plans to erase Sanders by stoking racial insecurities and grievances. If she plans to win the presidency by reassembling and reinvigorating the nObama coalition, she has work to do with another component of it: In three contests now, Sanders has crushed her among 18- to 29-year-olds, voters most of whom are too young to remember either her husband or when she was not an establishment fixture.
.
The Republican process of picking Clinton’s opponent already has, before the fourth delegate selection event, pruned the field from 17 to five, with only four — slump-Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and John Kasich, but not Ben Carson — with arguable paths to the nomination. Cruz is counting on volunteers wielding smartphones loaded with analytics — Boss Tweed meets Steve Jobs — to counter slump-Trump’s surfing on an endless wave of free media. Rubio needs Kasich, the only remaining governor, to wither while waiting for the process to reach states thought to be congenial. When Kasich became the last candidate other than Jim Gilmore to enter the race, one of his senior advisers pointed far ahead to Michigan’s March 8 primary. Kasich’s narrow path is: Become the sole center-right alternative, one-on-one with slump-Trump or Cruz in the industrial Midwest, and move from a strong Michigan showing to a March 15 victory in winner-take-all Ohio. Cruz wants protracted campaigns from both Rubio and Kasich. slump=Trump wants to delay the day when he has only one opponent and might learn that his ceiling is approximately what he won in South Carolina — 32.5 percent.
.
In 2011, slump-Trump said he had dispatched investigators to Hawaii to unearth the sinister truth about nObama’s birth. He said, “They cannot believe what they’re finding.” No one has seen his astonishing discoveries — or his tax filings, which might illuminate unsavory business practices and exaggerations of his wealth. He thrives by determining the campaign’s conversation. It is time to talk about his tax records.

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
