[Breitbart] The FBI is unable to access Connor Betts’s mobile phone, according to a Thursday-published report at the Hill citing "two sources."
Betts, a supporter of socialism and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), murdered nine people and wounded 27 others in a mass shooting attack in Dayton, Ohio.
It may take months or years to access data on Betts’s phone if the murderer used a PIN between six and eight digits, according to FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich. Bowdich reportedly informed House Democrats via conference call on Wednesday that the FBI "can’t unlock" Betts’s phone, adding, "We don’t know when we are going to get into the phone."
Call your locaĺ FBI office from a pay phone.
Tell the agent to put their iphone in a freezes for two hours.
Take it out and push the on button.
Hang up the pay phone without giving the agent your name...for good reason. :)
Notice how the term... "on the radar of law enforcement" has somehow fallen from favor ?
Just a guess, but it appears likely that the shooter was under close Law Enforcement surveillance, possibly Federal. Surveillance which could have included communications monitoring. A release of his cellie communications could also reveal time-lines as well as potential information on weapons and magazine purchases, planned events, and potential targets.
A key take-away is the title of the article itself.
Again, only a guess, but a guess that tracks with the comment made in #13. Any similarities btwn this and the subjects of the tragic Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, 2013 are purely coincidental.
Farook phone: The documents (three news organizations sued the FBI for info on how it was done) don't reveal who the FBI hired to hack into the phone or how much it paid that vendor. The FBI labeled those files "secret" before they were released.
Makes a person really want to know what was on Connor Bett's phone.
Do. Not. Believe. It. Are they telling me there is no way, none at all, to make copies of the encrypted memory? There has to be some leeway or the end users would "brick" so many phones that the defense would be commercially unusable.
Surprised they didn't claim the phone took a bullet or two when the shooter was taken down and it is now unaccessible. Or that they never recovered the phone, or that he apparently erased his phone prior to his attacks. Something a bit better than 'can't unlock'.
🚨UPDATE: 🚨 At 4:10 p.m. SPD were dispatched to 3150 W. Republic Rd. to a Walmart Neighborhood Market. An armed white male in his twenties was detained by an armed off-duty fireman until officers arrived on scene and took the suspect into custody. More: https://t.co/IZcH3Hn8GV
Odd how this is nowhere to be found in the MSM. The antidote to mass shooting is responsible CCW holders everywhere. The same antidote applies to tyrannical government by a well armed populace of free people.
[NYPOST] The "sister" of the Dayton, Ohio, shooter who was killed during the attack identified as a transgender guy ‐ although his family had no idea, according to a report and some of his own social media posts.
Connor Betts’ 22-year-old sibling was named by authorities as Megan Betts in the days after the mass shooting, with cops releasing a statement saying relatives had lost "a daughter."
But he apparently went by the name Jordan Cofer, and identified as a male, although he was only "out" to a small circle of friends, according to Splinter News, which spoke to several of those pals anonymously.
"Jordan was my closest friend," one pal told the outlet. "He identified with he/him pronouns to people he trusted and knew would support him. Jordan was probably one of the sweetest people you would ever meet, a true saint, but he was also very scared constantly. He tried to give the best to everyone."
One of his friends also confirmed to The Post: "I did know that he was indeed a trans man."
On Sunday, the 24-year-old killer drove to a popular strip of bars and restaurants with Jordan ‐ then made him one of the nine victims killed in the slaughter, officials said. Investigators have not yet identified his motive or whether his sibling was an intended target.
But his gender likely didn’t play a role in his death because Betts had no clue about his brother’s trans status, a friend told Splinter News.
"Jordan told me in the past that he was not out to his family, but that could have changed in the past month as we barely spoke of the topic recently," said the friend. "I do not believe that his gender identity had played a part in his death because of the fact that he wasn’t out to many people."
In a Tumblr account that also appears to be his, Jordan describes himself as an "ace poly trans boy with a loving heart and way too much work to do," according to the outlet, which confirmed that the account was legit through a friend.
And here we have the triggering incident. Sis came out, grabbed more attention and he couldn't stand it. The idea he killed her and her boyfriend(?) by coincidence is laughable. Even Dayton isn't that small.

[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] At least 28 people have died in the southern Indian state of Kerala after torrential monsoon rains caused landslides and flooding that cut off some areas, authorities said on Friday.
More than 64,000 people were evacuated and Cochin International Airport, the busiest airport in a state popular with tourists, was closed.
The airport, which is located along the banks of the Periyar river, will be shut until at least 1500 IST (0930 GMT) on Sunday, although the Indian Navy has opened an airfield at a naval base for use by commercial flights, officials said.
Seasonal monsoon rains from June to September cause deaths and mass displacement across South Asia every year but they also deliver more than 70% of India's rainfall and are crucial for farmers.
Kerala was hit by devastating floods last August that killed more than 200 people and affected more than 5 million. Those floods, dubbed the worst to hit the state in nearly a century, caused billions of dollars of damage to fields, homes and other infrastructure.
In the latest flooding, several dozen people were feared to have been trapped after landslides in Wayanad and Malappuram districts. Rescuers have recovered seven bodies and the state government is planning to airlift rescue equipment to the area, said Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
Bad weather was hampering rescue operations and rescuers faced the threat of further landslides, Vijayan said.
"Casualties could go up as many people are still trapped under debris," said an official with Kerala government, who did not want to be named.
Kerala received 155 mm (6.1 inches) of rain on Friday, ten times more than average, weather department data showed.
Time for a separate 'Florida" topical section on the 'burg?
You can see much the same all along the Gulf coast. Don't even start on what happens inland in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. Gulf Coast Texas seems just a bit more balanced. Just a bit...

..."Flordia Man" will become a meme regardless of location. A simple and quick tag not requiring much of an explanation to describe an event or person. Since the SJW will jump you for using moron or idiot (formerly classical definition tied to IQ), it is still safe to use "Flordia Man".
[Jpost] North Korea ...hereditary Communist monarchy distinguished by its truculence and periodic acts of violence. Distinguishing features include Songun (Army First) policy, which involves feeding the army before anyone but the Dear Leadership, and Juche, which is Kim Jong Il's personal interpretation of Marxism-Leninism, which he told everybody was brilliant. In 1950 the industrialized North invaded agrarian South Korea. Twenty-one countries of the United Nations eventually contributed to the UN force opposing the invasion, with the United States providing around 90% of the military personnel. Seventy years later the economic results are in and it doesn't look good for Juche... fired two unidentified projectiles into the sea off its eastern coast on Saturday, the Yonhap news agency said, citing South Korea's military.

[ALMASDARNEWS] The main mission objective of China’s H-6K bomber is to strike key strategic points deep within enemy territories, the state broadcaster revealed, leading experts to predict that the warplane could eventually be armed with hypersonic weapons that can destroy hostile military hubs 3,000 kilometers away within minutes.
Together with J-20 stealth fighters, H-6Ks could devastate the enemy’s fighting capability even before a war gets fully underway, analysts said.
"In a war, our main objective is to launch attacks on an enemy’s deep and vital positions, paralyzing their facilities. This is what we especially excel at," said H-6K pilot Li Ping, China Central Television (CCTV) reported on Tuesday.
While the H-6K is not a stealth warplane, nor does it have outstanding speed to penetrate deep into hostile territory, it is equipped with very advanced weapons including air-launched cruise missiles, enabling it to attack targets far away, Wang Ya’nan, chief editor of Aerospace Knowledge magazine, told the Global Times on Tuesday.
"The H-6K can remain within a safe zone, launch its missiles that can reach targets 2,000 kilometers away," Wang said, noting that these missiles are difficult to intercept due to their stealth capabilities.
"With China developing hypersonic weapons [missiles that fly at least five times the speed of sound] in recent years, its attack range and speed could become even greater than a conventional cruise missile, potentially capable of taking out targets deep within hostile territories 3,000 kilometers away within just a few minutes," Wang predicted.
Assuming each H-6K can carry six missiles, 10 bombers can attack as many as 60 vital military hubs, which could destroy the enemy, he said.

[LI] German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s ruling Christian Democratic party (CDU) has supported plans to raise meat prices to fight climate change.
The meat tax, initially proposed by the Social Democrats (SPD) and the Green Party, will sharply increase the prices of meat products by raising the tax rate from the current rate of 7 percent to 19 percent.
High prices will reduce carbon emissions by forcing Germans to cut on their meat consumption, top lawmakers believe. The move backed by German Agriculture Minister Julia Klöckner is part of a broader green agenda to fight climate change. Last month, the country’s Environment Minister Svenja Schulze proposed a carbon tax on German household to cut emissions.
The meat tax will hit poor German households the hardest. "More expensive meat might, in theory, reduce those numbers as some people cut their consumption to save money," Reuters news agency concluded.
The radical proposal comes at a time when poverty is at its highest since the unification of Germany in 1990. Over 15 million Germans, roughly 20 percent of the population, "aren’t earning enough to pay their bills or adequately heat their homes," a 2018 government study showed.
The German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle reported:
This little climate-hysteric piggy had roastbeef.
This little developing nation had none.
And this little piggy ran al-l-l-l-l-l the way home to his UN sinecure, on his carbon-hogging A380 jetliner...
I come from the land of sausage,
I'd rather have them than a massage.
How do you think I got so da*n tall?
It's not from the greens at the mall.
It's from my beer, meat, and potatoes,
reach for them and prepare for great woes.
From George Orwell's 1984: As short a time ago as February, the Ministry of Plenty had issued a promise (a "categorical pledge" were the official words) that there would be no reduction of the chocolate ration during 1984. Actually, as Winston was aware, the chocolate ration was to be reduced from thirty grammes to twenty at the end of the present week. All that was needed was to substitute for the original promise a warning that it would probably be necessary to reduce the ration at some time in April.
[Jpost] An envoy of U.S. President Donald Trump ...Oh, noze! Not him!... suggested on Friday that Chancellor Angela Merkel ...chancellor of Germany and the impetus behind Germany's remarkably ill-starred immigration program. Merkel used to be referred to by Germans as Mom. Now they make faces at her for inundating the country with Moslem colonists... 's unwillingness to boost defense spending might give the United States no choice but to move American troops stationed in Germany to Poland.
The comments by Richard Grenell, the U.S. ambassador to Germany, signal Trump's impatience with Merkel's failure to raise defense spending to 2% of economic output as mandated by the NATO ...the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. It's headquartered in Belgium. That sez it all.... military alliance.
"It is offensive to assume that the U.S. taxpayers continue to pay for more than 50,000 Americans in Germany but the Germans get to spend their (budget) surplus on domestic programs," Grenell told the dpa news agency.
Germany's fiscal plans foresee the defense budget of NATO's second-largest member rising to 1.37% of output next year before falling to 1.24% in 2023.
Eastern Europe ...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum... an countries like Poland and Latvia, fearful of Russia after it annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, have raised their military spending to the 2% target, drawing praise from Trump who wants Germany to do the same.
U.S. complaints about Germany's defense spending pre-date Trump but relations with the United States have deteriorated since he became president.
The two allies do not see eye-to-eye on a range of issues, including Iran, trade tariffs and the NordStream 2 gas pipeline from Russia to Germany.
Trump said in June he would deploy 1,000 U.S. troops from Germany to Poland, which sees the measure as deterrence against possible aggression from Russia.
Georgette Mosbacher, U.S. ambassador to Poland, has made a similar criticism of Germany's reluctance to commit more financial resources to NATO.
"Poland meets its 2% of GDP spending obligation towards NATO. Germany does not. We would welcome American troops in Germany to come to Poland," she wrote on Twitter on Thursday.
The United States has more than 33,000 soldiers in Germany and an additional 17,000 U.S. civilian employees to support them. It is believed the United States also has nuclear warheads in Germany.
"President Trump is right and Georgette Mosbacher is right," Grenell told dpa. "Multiple presidents have asked Europe's largest economy to pay for its own defense. This request has been made over many years and by many presidents."
Grenell added that the United States must react if Germany continues to ignore Trump's demand to boost defense spending.
Trump travels to La Belle France this month for the G7 summit where Iran ...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan, the abbreviation IRGC is a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate JewsZionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol... will be a major topic. Trump will also visit Poland and Denmark.
Grenell earlier this month criticized Germany for showing reluctance to join a planned U.S. naval mission in the Strait of Hormuz, close to Iran.

US ambassadors have become dim bulbs. There are no "2% spending obligations to NATO". The 2% is a commitment to spend 2% of the national GDP on NATIONAL defense. "Defense" can mean anything you want it to mean btw.
And Grenell's "threat" is empty. Maybe a few thousand troops will be moved to Poland but the U.S. will not give up Ramstein, Landstuhl or Grafenwöhr. Just ask the Pentagon (as Mr Grenell should have done).
Btw Germany subsidizes U.S. presence with 600 million euros per year.

[DAWN] MULTAN: The girl who had accused a PML-N Punjab 1.) Little Orphan Annie's bodyguard
2.) A province of Pakistain ruled by one of the Sharif brothers
3.) A province of India. It is majority (60 percent) Sikh and Hindoo (37 percent), which means it has relatively few Moslem riots.... Assembly member from Jahanian of rape and blackmail a few days back on Thursday recorded her statement before the area magistrate.
Meanwhile, ...back at the alley, Slats grabbed for his rosco... the Bahauddin Zakariya police had already lodged a case against the MPA, fearing the girl might have been kidnapped by the politician.
"The girl with her mother and brother came to the cop shoppe at the Violence Against Women Crisis Centre and was produced before the area magistrate to record her statement under section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC)," Bahauddin Zakariya Police Station in charge told Dawn.
He said the FIR on behalf of the girl was lodged by the police as she had "gone missing".
"The statement of the girl has been recorded by the magistrate and police will get a copy of it on Friday (today). If she has accused the MPA of raping and making video clips of her, the police will take action against him," the station house officer (SHO) claimed.
He denied having earlier refused to lodge an FIR against the MPA, claiming the girl never approached him with such a request.
However, a clean conscience makes a soft pillow... sources told Dawn that the girl in her statement denied she was raped.
The police had lodged an FIR against the MPA under section 376, 377 and 365 of the Pakistain Penal Code.
Advocate Iftikhar Gill, the lawyer who had appeared in the court of area magistrate on July 17 seeking court direction for the Nishtar Hospital medical superintendent to conduct her medical examination, said the police did not allow him to meet the girl.
He claimed the girl was first taken to the counsel for the suspect MPA and one of the assistants from the chamber of the counsel appeared before the magistrate on behalf of the girl.
He alleged the girl recorded her statement under duress which had no legal value.

[DAWN] The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a petition seeking review of its Jan 23 verdict of restoring the five-year sentence awarded to Shah Hussain by a sessions judge of Lahore on March 30 last year.
Shah Hussain was convicted of stabbing his fellow student Khadija Siddiqui 23 times on May 3, 2016, near Lahore’s Shimla Hill where she, along with her driver, had gone to pick up her younger sister Soofia from school. Khadija now has done her Bar-at-Law at the City Law School, City University, London.
Moved through counsel Shah Khawar, the review petition was heard by a three-judge Supreme Court bench, headed by Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa. With the rejection of the review petition, the earlier five-year conviction stands intact.
Shah Khawar argued before the court that the girl named his client after five days and there was a strong possibility that his name surfaced after deliberations and suggested that his client may have been implicated and connected later.
"Let them eat silt!"
[BREITBART] The United Nations ...an organization conceived in the belief that we're just one big happy world, with the sort of results you'd expect from such nonsense... ’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report on Thursday that calls for letting agricultural land return to the wilderness and for people to eat more plants and fewer animals.
The report reiterates the globalist organization’s claim that man’s use of natural resources to improve people’s lives around the world is making "global warming" worse and will make food more scarce, more expensive, and less nutritional.
"The cycle is accelerating," NASA climate scientist Cynthia Rosenzweig, a co-author of the report, said in an News Agency that Dare Not be Named report. "The threat of climate change affecting people’s food on their dinner table is increasing."
"But if people change the way they eat, grow food and manage forests, it could help save the planet from a far warmer future, scientists said," AP wrote about the report, entitled "Climate Change and Land: an IPCC special report on climate change, desertification, land degradation, sustainable land management, food security, and greenhouse gas fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems."
AP reported that the report was unanimously approved "by diplomats from nations around the world," including the United States, and "proposed possible fixes and more dire warnings."
"The stability of food supply is projected to decrease as the magnitude and frequency of extreme weather events that disrupt food chains increases," the report said.
"Global crop and economic models project a median increase of 7.6 percent (range of 1 to 23 percent) in cereal prices in 2050 due to climate change, leading to higher food prices and increased risk of food insecurity and hunger," the report said.
"If people change their diets, reducing red meat and increasing plant-based foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and seeds, the world can save as much as another 15 percent of current emissions by mid-century. It would also make people more healthy," NASA’s Rosenzweig said in the AP report.
"We don’t want to tell people what to eat," Hans-Otto Pörtner, an ecologist who co-chairs the IPCC’s working group on impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability, said in a Nature article on the report. "But it would indeed be beneficial, for both climate and human health, if people in many rich countries consumed less meat, and if politics would create appropriate incentives to that effect."
if people in many rich countries consumed less meat, and if politics would create appropriate incentives to that effect.
"Reduce the nutrition value of healthy societies like you've reduced the value of their education, tax the bastards to take food away from their table ! Support the AOCs and their green deals. Destroy the automobile industry, after which, go for armaments."
if people change the way they eat, grow food and manage forests, it could help save the planet
"Looks like they have it right. It took hundreds of years, the industrial revolution and going to fucking space to realize it, but we did."
Wait... they're not really defending this specimen, are they?
This is false flag stuff, Roger Stone's trickery, right?
They can't possibly be making this guy the face of immigration, can they? I mean, that's like, well, making Baltimore the sacred ground of the Democratic Party, or a corrupt jew-hating Somali girl the face of your party?
