A Black Box Can Hack Into an iPhone

The device in the following image looks like an Apple TV, but it is, in fact, a gadget that can decrypt iPhones. It’s called GrayKey, first detailed in a blog post on Malwarebytes, and features two Lightning cables.


Two phones can be connected for about two minutes. After that, they’re disconnected, and the cracking begins. It all happens on the phone, as some sort of software is loaded on it using the GrayKey box. The software, which seems to jailbreak the phone, brute-forces its way into the password.

After a period of time, the iPhone will show a black screen that contains the password needed to decrypt the phone. The company that makes these boxes is called Grayshift and claims that even disabled phones can be unlocked.

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe fired | Lied Under Oath


“After an extensive and fair investigation and according to Department of Justice procedure, the Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) provided its report on allegations of misconduct by Andrew McCabe to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR),” Sessions said.

“The FBI’s OPR then reviewed the report and underlying documents and issued a disciplinary proposal recommending the dismissal of Mr. McCabe.  Both the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor − including under oath − on multiple occasions.

“The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability. As the OPR proposal stated, ‘all FBI employees know that lacking candor under oath results in dismissal and that our integrity is our brand.'”

Just like 95% of all criminals McCabe says he is innocent. He will get a job working for some Democrat as long as he doesn’t expose anyone else and plays the victim.

Ohio student suspended for staying in class during National Walkout Day | School Demands Complete Political Loyalty

An Ohio high school student said he tried to stay apolitical during the National Walkout Day over gun violence but was suspended for his choice to remain in a classroom instead of joining protests or the alternative, going to study hall.

Jacob Shoemaker, a senior at Hilliard Davidson High School, said he didn’t want to take sides in the gun-control debate consuming the country. If he went outside for the walkout, he said, he would be supporting gun control. If he stayed in the common area of the school, he said, he would be seen as supporting gun violence and disrespecting the 17 lives lost in the Parkland, Fla. High school shooting the month before.

Jacob had met with the school’s principal on Tuesday, a day before the rally, for about an hour to find out what exactly the walkout was supporting. But he said the principal reportedly told him it was for the “students to express themselves.”


This left Jacob wondering if it was a memorial for the lives lost or a show of support for gun control.

He decided, instead, to stay in class for about 20 minutes doing homework after his teacher and fellow classmates left and locked the door.

When they returned, he was slapped with a suspension.

Watch: Cherokee Genealogist Takes Elizabeth Warren’s Native American Claims To The Woodshed

via Watch: Cherokee Genealogist Takes Elizabeth Warren’s Native American Claims To The Woodshed – Matt Vespa

Genealogist Twila Barnes said Warren is not of Cherokee heritage and is “not enrolled” with the tribe.

Twila Barnes called her claims nothing more than “identity theft”

“She has no family on the rolls, she has no indication of Indian ancestry anywhere in her lineage,” Barnes said.

Carlson said Warren received preferential treatment in her pre-senatorial occupation on the basis of her claiming to be Native American.

Barnes said the reported manner in which her parents were wed does not match well with Warren’s account.

She said Warren’s parents, Pauline and Donald Herring, were married by a prominent Oklahoma minister who the genealogist said would not be one to tie the knot in an elopement.

“She has no proof of anything and she’s a lawyer,” Barnes said of Warren.

FBI: The Obama Administration Purged 500,000 Fugitives From the Gun Background Check System | Feel Safer Now?

61cd09b7-d71c-4f28-9d51-91e6872bbe09Adding insult to injury, under the Obama Justice Department prosecutions of crimes committed with firearms decreased by 25 percent.

While President Obama decries gun violence and presses for more laws to restrict ownership, his Justice Department has prosecuted 25 percent fewer cases referred by the main law enforcement agency charged with reducing firearms violence across the country, a computer analysis of U.S. prosecution data shows.

Federal prosecutors brought a total of 5,082 gun violation cases in 2013 recommended by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, compared with 6,791 during the last year of George W. Bush’s presidency in 2008, according to data obtained from the Executive Office of U.S. Attorneys.
