9/3/14 – WHAT DOES THE ALLEGED ICLOUD HACK MEAN FOR FEDERAL AGENCIES?
http://www.nextgov.com/cybersecurity/2014/09/what-does-alleged-icloud-hack-mean-agencies/92957/?oref=nextgov_today_nl

COMMENT: There is an old saying and it deals with a FAT LADY and her stepping up to the mike to SING! It takes her a little while to warm up, but she will sing eventually and the noise she emits will be HIDEOUS to all involved. How’s that metaphor? Apple, the Federal Government, Microsoft, etc., etc., remind me of a song I heard long ago, “If you can’t be with he one you love, HONEY, love the one you’re with.” This is the best they have, so, I guess its the system we are stuck with “warts” and all.  If you want to know how I really feel, read the next article

9/3/14 – ‘NEXT TIME IT WON’T BE CELEBRITY SECRETS,’ WARNS DEMOCRAT ON PRIVACY HACK
http://thehill.com/policy/technology/216446-next-time-it-wont-be-celebrity-secrets-dem-warns

COMMENT: This guy is “preaching to the choir.” I will say it and say it again and again, “There is no security in computers!” I will give you a little heads up here, it is like the criminal who gets away with stealing, whatever for a long time, but one day decides to let ONE person know how smart he is. Before the day is done, a hundred people know and then a thousand. The point is one of those people is a COP and now the crook’s anonymity is gone, and he has drawn a line in the sand stating how SMART he is/was. Once the cop is focused on the crook it doesn’t take long. The same thing with computers, programs, the cloud, etc. once the bad guys focus on you, IT IS DONE. The attacks will be relentless, they will be focused and with time, and persistence, you will lose, you will ALWAYS lose. The other factor is that most of the bad guys are SMARTER than the geeks writing these programs. As long as we, the taxpayers keep funding this constant war of attrition, the geeks will keep trying to convince us that the HOLY GRAIL of computer security is out there. It is NOT, and IT never will be.

9/3/14 – ‘WE WILL NOT BE INTIMIDATED’ BY ISIS
http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/216473-we-will-not-be-intimidated

COMMENT: I remember my early days on the playground when two kids, three kids would get into a fight. One would get his tail kicked, and after the teacher steps in and hugs him, he would be standing there yelling through tears and shaking how he wasn’t scared and he could have beaten the other kid. Everyone, I mean everyone standing there would look at the kid with the bloody nose, and think “Dude shut up, just go away, you are embarrassing yourself. Well, this is Obama at present. He is the kid that has gotten his rear kicked, continues to get it kicked and keeps embarrassing himself with statements that belie the facts. HE IS scared of ISIS, and HE DOES NOT have a plan, and any plan he does come up with WILL NOT solve the problem. Between his inaction, the CIA’s negligence of duty, the FBI’s “let the other guy deal with it” mentality, Homeland Security’s, “let everyone into the country” actions, DOJ’s continuing gross incompetence we all should sleep with one eye open.

9/3/14 – FATHER OF MAN KILLED BY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT DEMANDS POTUS VISIT SON’S GRAVE
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/sep/2/father-of-man-killed-by-illegal-immigrant-challeng/

COMMENT: Good luck with this. The President is NOT going to visit the man’s son’s grave and he is not going to do anything about the thousands of Americans killed and maimed by ILLEGALS every year. The numbers will NOT get smaller, they will only get larger. There is little to nothing that Obama can or will do about ANYTHING in the next two years other than pick the lowest lying fruit on the tree. I don’t have to say, or prove a thing, he does it every day with his incompetence, inaction, and buffoonery. He, Jeh Johnson, Eric Holder, John Brennan, and the multitude of OBINIONS have shown that protecting the Homeland and the American people is NOT their personal programs.
