If Tim Cook hasn’t noticed, Apple is a corporation that owes a fiduciary duty to its shareholders and anything which can prejudice any government against Apple’s business policies and practices may not be a good thing. So instead of being the iconic gay business leader, perhaps he should be the business leader who happens to be gay. So why is Tim Cook and his cohorts deliberately giving the finger to the Republicans – with a more than likely chance that they may become the next Administration and take a closer look at Apple’s business practices?
It is enough that Apple’s cache and sales – based on design rather than innovation – may become a thing of the past as computing becomes commoditized in a cloud that only requires a minimal footprint and browser to take advantage of powerful systems.
About the encryption issue …
I firmly believe that Tim Cook was absolutely correct in withholding Apple’s engineering resources to create a tool to allow the FBI to crack the Riverside Terrorist’s iPhone. First, because it was the bumbling FBI that made the phone inaccessible in the first place by fiddling with passwords. Second, because the FBI was disingenuous about attempting to set a legal precedent that could be used to force any company to build tools to assist the FBI in cracking any and all electronic devices. Three, because the FBI found an alternative source to provide the technical support they originally sought from Apple – and appear to be sharing it with numerous other law enforcement agencies with similar device encryption issues. But, most of all, there was little to learn from the device itself, and there was a well-founded suspicion that the FBI was orbiting the area using a sniffer to hoover-up all manner of electronic communications.
Trump on the other had is a bloviating billionaire bully boy who appears to be a progressive socialist democrat masquerading as a republican. His ego-centric worldview and bizarre pronouncements make him unfit for the Office of the President and the role of Commander-in-Chief. Trump is no techie and his command of technical issues is probably limited to Tweeting.
Bottom line …
I hope that Tim Cook will concentrate on the massive job of making Apple relevant in these fast-paced technological times and leave the social engineering and so-called “justice” politics to the lobbyists who work both sides of the aisle.

Once again a high-ranking member of the Obama Administration follows in the footsteps of President Obama, Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, and United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice in believing the end justifies the means – including lying to the American public in such a manner as to prevent well-reasoned decision-making.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch has announced that the government will release only a partial transcript of the Orlando shooter’s 911 calls. What will be removed are the references to Islamic terrorism and the shooter’s motivation in his own words …
Bottom line …
It is time that the progressive socialist democrats stop treating America citizens like children and pre-digesting the news in such a manner as befits the pursuit of their own agenda. Why does it matter that the Orlando shooter was a gay Muslim or a registered democrat who voted for Barack Obama twice or declared his allegiance to a foreign terrorist organization? Pretty much because it indicates that this “mass shooting” is an aberrational event and does not support the Administration’s attempt to capitalize on this crisis to pursue gun control.
If the truth be known, looking at FBI statistics, would make a case for disarming only minority gang members in the inner cities and leaving the great majority of law-abiding citizens alone. But, it appears that the Obama Administration cannot tell the truth to the American public for fear of looking predatory and foolish.
It is about time that the Obama Department of Justice be held accountable for the ongoing attempts to criminally obstruct justice by slow-walking investigations such as “Fast and Furious,” the “IRS scandal,” “Benghazi,” and the attempt to stack the department with anti-America ideologues who appear to be bending over backwards to provide aid and comfort to our enemies when it comes to Gitmo and other investigations involving terrorists.
We are so screwed when our government believes that telling us that they are lying or have lied bring no accountability to the perpetrators of those acts. It appears that Congress is afraid of acting lest the members be held accountable in their districts by the activists who will target them as being racist.
When will “We the People” demand accountability from our politicians or will we continue accepting corruption and continue sliding towards a French-style revolution in 2050 when all semblance of law and order is merely a cover for political tyranny?

For the majority of Black progressive socialist democrats, there are few things as revered as Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech and the power of King’s own words …
But here comes Oprah Winfrey who overlooked Obama’s inexperience, ties to radical ministers, ties to domestic terrorists, and ties to communists to vote for Obama because he was black.
Now it appears that Oprah Winfrey will do the same thing by ignoring Hillary Clinton’s flawed character and voting for her because she is a female.
Martin Luther King would be so ashamed that one of the most prominent and accomplished women in America would ignore character for color and ignore substance for sex.
Bottom line …
Perhaps Oprah can be forgiven her vote for Barack Obama because he put forth a message of change and hope. But, how can she be forgiven for endorsing and promoting a candidate that is mired in scandal, under investigation by the FBI, and has a pattern and practice of obstruction of justice?
If anything, Oprah sold out her people, her entire audience as well as her community, by endorsing the man who has disadvantaged blacks in every way possible. And now she seeks to repeat history with the endorsement and promotion of Hillary Clinton. Of course, Oprah is so wealthy and insulated from the real world that she is immune from the he effects of any corrupt politician. So as my mother used to say, if she is doing wrong, the sin is on her.
