From BusinessInsider.com:

Seventeen fake cellphone towers were discovered across the U.S. last week, according to a report in Popular Science.

Rather than offering you cellphone service, the towers appear to be connecting to nearby phones, bypassing their encryption, and either tapping calls or reading texts.

Les Goldsmith, the CEO of ESD America, used ESD’s CryptoPhone 500 to detect 17 bogus cellphone towers. ESD is a leading American defense and law enforcement technology provider based in Las Vegas.

With most phones, these fake communication towers are undetectable. But not for the CryptoPhone 500, a customized Android device that is disguised as a Samsung Galaxy S III but has highly advanced encryption.

Why isn’t the media covering the killing of an unarmed white youth by a black police officer?

The case of Michael Brown, the unarmed, black teenager shot and killed by a white police officer, continues to make headlines weeks after the incident sparked riots and outrage in Ferguson, Missouri, and prompted a national debate.

Meanwhile, the case of Dillon Taylor, an unarmed, white 20-year-old shot and killed by a black policeman outside a 7-Eleven in Utah has received virtually no media coverage beyond local news reports.

The negligible coverage of the Taylor case by the mainstream media prompted many conservative critics to address the racial double standard. The Washington Times reports: “Talk-show host Rush Limbaugh blamed the discrepancy between the two cases on ‘the liberal world view’ that portrays whites as oppressors and blacks as victims.”

The Times noted that CNN news host Jake Tapper acknowledged the discrepancy between the two cases, and noted that “the press often undercovers such topics as inner-city violence and the high rates of black-on-black crime.”

According to Tapper, though, the Brown case is more newsworthy because of the national reaction it sparked, though some question whether the excessive media coverage of the violent protests actually served to fuel them.

Question of the Day: Should Lois Lerner be Arrested or Should She Be Given Immunity?

It becomes very simple. It is EXTREMELY evident that Lois Lerner broke the law. It is also clear that she waived her 5th Amendment rights when she read a statement to the House Oversight Committee (Her lawyer should have read her statement, and there would be no issue with her 5th Amendment rights).

So should she be arrested for the crimes she has committed, or should she be granted immunity so she can testify freely? And do we then trust that what she proffers is EVERYTHING?

What say you?

 

Economics Professor Dave Brat was stunned himself last night. In fact, it would be a draw as to who was more stunned, Brat in winning or Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va) for being defeated.

With the backing of grassroots organizing, and without the names of the national Tea Party groups, Dave Brat spent less than $200k to Cantor’s $5  million campaign. Brat was able to capitalize on the backing of radio talk hosts like Laura Ingraham.

So what does Cantor’s defeat mean? The DNC and their talking heads are spinning this as the GOP in turmoil. Or could this be the wake up call the GOP Establishment needed? The next few weeks will be very important for the GOP, for the midterms in November and for the 2016 Presidential race. Let’s hope they know how to handle this situation and make it a positive for the country.

For my money, I think Bret Baier’s “Special Heart” will be a more rewarding read than Hillary Clinton’s “Hard Choices”.

TOLERANCE.

That is the word we hear all the time. TOLERANCE on race issues. TOLERANCE on gay issues. Isn’t it time for TOLERANCE to be a 2-way street.

In Colorado, a baker did not want to bake a cake for a gay couple’s wedding. He has been found guilty of discrimination. Now he has received his sentence:

An Administrative Law judge in Colorado named Robert Spencer has issued an extraordinary rule in the case of Masterpiece Cake Shop which refused to help two homosexuals make a mockery of marriage.

A Colorado baker found guilty of discrimination for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple must go through sensitivity training as part of his penance and rehabilitation. In December of last year, Administrative Law Judge Robert Spencer found Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cake Shop in the Denver suburb of Lakewood, guilty of discriminating against same-sex couple Dave Mullin and Charlie Craig when he told them in July 2012 that he couldn’t bake them a wedding cake because homosexual behavior conflicted with his Christian beliefs.

Phillips appealed the verdict to the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which stood by Spencer’s decision and ordered May 30 that Phillips be required to bake wedding cakes for same-sex couples in conflict with his moral Christian convictions. Additionally, Phillips and his staff will have to submit to a regimen of state-sanctioned sensitivity training to make sure they are in line with Colorado’s non-discrimination statute.

Over the next two years Phillips will also be required to submit quarterly reports to Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission concerning his business practices, informing the commission whether he has turned any business away, most importantly homosexual customers. “So if his shop is closed or he’s out of flour, he needs to report to the commission,” explained Nicolle Martin of Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the conservative Christian legal advocacy group that represented Phillips in the case, to Fox News on June 5.

So, would it be discrimination if the same baker refused to bake a cake with a Swastika on it, as the RedState article infers?

And let me pose the question this way. IF you sat down with a baker, and you could tel that the baker was uncomfortable with the situation as the cake specifics were discussed, do you REALLY want that baker to be baking your cake?  When we have chosen a cake decorator, for birthdays, engagements, weddings, baptisms, etc., we have wanted the baker’s very best. This baker would not have intentionally caused a problem with the cake, but would his “heart” have been in the project?

TOLERANCE…. it does go both ways!!

There has been another tragic shooting, and innocent lives have been lost or forever scarred. The gunman has taken one life, and is himself dead. The high school in Oregon, which has a student population of nearly 2800, had one more day of classes before the summer recess.

It is without question that this is a senseless act.

But it is also one that the gun control advocates will once again seize upon.

GUN CONTROL is not the answer. Not until we address the mental health issues plaguing this country. Not until we address the desensitization of our youths to violence through movies, video games, and music. If we are to have an honest debate about these violent acts, we must do so in an honest manner. The NRA is NOT to blame. GUNS are not to blame.

May God comfort the families of the victims today in Oregon, including the family of the gunman.
