Politics in the News

Whether you are a libertarian, conservative, NRA member or simply a citizen concerned with today's political climate, you will find news items of interest and relevance on Reliable Answers "Politics in the News."

What message are our legislators sending to voters, when they publicly admit they haven't done their job? How many bills are passed each year that policymakers haven't even bothered to read? This is disgraceful. This is called dereliction of duties and we must demand a stop to this practice.

Fully nude strip searches of females are being forcefully conducted by male police officers, against policy, and in Abu Ghraib torture style, in Stark County Ohio. The women are video-taped and left naked for up to six hours.

Near the beginning of the video you can see the black male officer helping to strip Hope's panties off of her while another male officer holds her down. The woman's bra and panties are removed along with all her clothing, exposing her bare naked breasts, ass, and vagina in front of the male officers. She is eventually completely stripped and left naked and handcuffed on the floor. All this happened merely because 911 was called for help on Hope's behalf when she was hurt in a fight. Hope accidentally showed her dead sister's ID to police, she keeps it with her in remembrance of her sister. So far, five women have come forward with similar strip search experiences at this Ohio jail.

An astounding video uncovered from the archives today shows the BBC reporting on the collapse of WTC Building 7 over twenty minutes before it fell at 5:20pm on the afternoon of more 9/11.

The incredible footage shows BBC reporter Jane Standley talking about the collapse of the Salomon Brothers Building while it remains standing in the live shot behind her head. How did the BBC know that it was going to collapse? And why did they report the collapse when it is clearly standing in the background?

Japanese Defense Ministry has awarded Fujitsu a contract to develop a vigilante computer virus, which will track down and eliminate other viruses, or rather - their sources of origin

Are 'good' viruses a bad idea? Sophos seems to think so, saying, "When you're trying to gather digital forensic evidence as to what has broken into your network, and what data it may have stolen, it's probably not wise to let loose a program that starts to trample over your hard drives, making changes."

Detainees describe it as filthy, cramped, and contaminated with asbestos.

Pier 57, on the Hudson River, has become the detention center for hundreds of protestors from this week's Republican National Convention. A detainee who identified herself as "Emily" was arrested off Union Square East on Tuesday. She told Democracy Now!, "We've been in jail for over 13 hours right now. In our first nine hours, the only food we received was an apple..."

While tobacco was introduced to the world by America in 1492, some states in the U.S are now considering a ban on smoking in cars and even homes.

Nineteen states and the administrators of nearly 2,300 cities are passing a law to ban smoking in as many places as possible. While America is doing its utmost to protect its own citizens from the lethal effects of tobacco, it backs the policy of selling tobacco to third-world countries. Ohio recently passed a law banning smoking in workplaces and public places. Even those smoking outside their workplaces will be fined $100.

Here's a map that purports to show how much oil there is in North America and that the supply far exceeds the demand. This website argues greed is driving the high oil price, not shortage.

Enough oil? Peak oil? Past our peak? Not only do I have no clue what's true, neither do most people, including a lot of VCs and that keeps 1) the oil price high, and 2) the interest in cleantech high. Because nobody wants to sit in the dark, walk to work or have cold stew for dinner.

US law can apply anywhere in the world, so long as a technology company has control over foreign data, a court rules.

A US judge has ordered Microsoft to hand over foreign data it stores back to the US, despite allegedly strong privacy protections in Europe to mitigate such processes. The logic of the court is that because the US-headquartered software giant controls the data it stores overseas, its foreign subsidiary companies are just as applicable to US law. US District Judge Loretta Preska in New York said the ruling will be stayed to allow Microsoft to appeal the decision to an appeals court. "It is a question of control, not a question of the location of that information," Preska said in the ruling.

Adobe's database was hacked on October 3, impacting an estimated 150 million Adobe users. Here's a simple way to see if you're affected.

Wonder if your email address, password, credit card information or more was leaked to the world when Adobe's database was hacked last October? If you've gotten your email address anywhere near an Adobe product past or present, then the answer is: probably. Recent reports reveal that Adobe's stolen database held around 150 million user accounts - and not the 2.9 million Adobe originally reported, or the 38 million Krebs on Security later reported.

My iPhone lies there like a dead fish, telling me nothing. If you believe the weather and clock icons on my iPhone, the temperature and time of day haven't changed for 18 months.

I think I figured out what's going on with iOS 7. Sir Jony has been trapped in a monochromatic hardware world of his own making for so long that now that he's allowed to meddle in software, he's pulled out that box of Crayolas he's kept locked in the bottom drawer and let loose his inner Wonderland. I'll get back to iOS 7 in a minute. First, let me tell you about our phones. I've been using iPhones since a month after the iPhone app store opened back in 2008. After five years, I've decided to dump my daily driver (an iPhone 4S) for a hot new Samsung S4. In fact, we're getting two of them.

A new security flaw has been discovered in Instagram that allows a perpetrator to add anyone as a friend and see their private photos and profile information.

Spanish security researcher Sebastián Guerrero has discovered a flaw in Instagram which he has dubbed the "Friendship Vulnerability." In short, it allows anyone to add themselves as a friend to your Instagram account. As a result, they can then view photos you have set to Private as well as profile information. Guerrero blames the bug on Instagram's "lack of control on the logic applied to authorization feature." He explains that both the iPhone and Android apps are affected by the remote vulnerability.
