TNW: This could be the Apple iCloud flaw that led to celebrity photos being leaked
"On Monday, a Python script emerged on Github... that appears to have allowed malicious users to ‘brute force’ a target account’s password on Apple’s iCloud, thanks to a vulnerability in the Find my iPhone service." [rdbrewer]

Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Ariana Grande Among Celebrities Exposed in Massive Nude Photo Leak
The quote that caught my eye: "Knowing those photos were deleted long ago, I can only imagine the creepy effort that went into this." What are these services and, I assume, social media doing holding onto your stuff after you've deleted it? Can we get some ironclad privacy legislation now? Make that a felony. [rdbrewer]



"We don't care if you deleted your shit. We're holding onto it."
The Telegraph: The self- loathing of the British Left is now a problem for us all
"We’ve all read [the facts], and reeled away in horror. The interesting question is how and why would any country allow the racialised gang-rape of its own daughters? Why? Because too many in that country, especially on the Left, most especially in the Labour Party, despise their own ordinary people...." They're desperate to see themselves as uncommon, with-it. Via @Instapundit. [rdbrewer]

Daily Mail: Myth of arctic meltdown: Stunning satellite images show summer ice cap is thicker and covers 1.7million square kilometres MORE than 2 years ago...despite Al Gore's prediction it would be ICE-FREE by now
A melting ice cap was construed as proof of global warming; thus, a growing ice cap is proof global warming isn't a problem. Right? Problem is, progs have never been hampered by intellectual honesty and logical consistency. [rdbrewer]


NBC reporter says military officials are ‘APOPLECTIC’ over Obama’s passive nonexistent foreign policy
A Richard Engel report. Watch the whole thing. Via @JohnEkdahl. [rdbrewer]

Time: See Every Single Device Connected to the Internet [rdbrewer]


Media mostly laughs with, not at, Obama
"The left can’t laugh at Obama because in doing so they would be laughing at themselves." [rdbrewer]
Flashback: "We Will Not Rest"
The Free Beacon did this some weeks ago but it's worth rewatching
Loathesome MP George Galloway got his ass kicked on a London street
"Galloway is a nauseating anti-Semite who once told Saddam Hussein during a speech he gave in Iraq, 'Sir, I salute your courage, your strength, your indefatigability.'" Maybe the Brits will vote him out of office now. [rdbrewer]




President George W. Obama Lashes Out at Media Over Sinking Poll Numbers
Most of the time, Democrats wait until after the midterms to blame the media for their losses. [rdbrewer]


Erick Erickson: The Continued Farce
"Soon, because polling and focus grouping suggested 'global warming' was not working, the name changed to 'climate change.' No one really opposes the new term. Every person who has ever lived agrees the climate changes." [rdbrewer]


Matthew Continetti: Remilitarize the World Police
"In the past, America has cut defense without eliminating our deterrent. What’s different? Presidential incompetence." [rdbrewer]

Editorial: President Obama needs to focus on how the United States can meet global challenges
"OBAMA’S acknowledgment that 'we don’t have a strategy yet' in Syria understandably attracted the most attention after his perplexing meeting with reporters Thursday. But his restatement of the obvious was not the most dismaying aspect of his remarks." Via @trueholygoat. Added: More from HotAir. [rdbrewer]
Book Review: A Flowershop In Baghdad
Memoir by USAF Major Michael Banzet of his time in Iraq, highly relevant once more as the Endless War continues to not end

Charles Krauthammer: The Answer to Corporate ‘Inversion’
"What is maddening is that the problem is so easily solved: tax reform that lowers the accursed corporate rate." [rdbrewer]


Walter E. Williams: Blacks Must Confront Reality
"The point of bringing up these historical facts is to ask this question, with a bit of sarcasm: Is the reason the black family was far healthier in the late 1800s and 1900s that back then there was far less racial discrimination and there were greater opportunities?" [rdbrewer]

Ramesh Ponnuru, Bloomberg: Romney? Again? Please Stop
Exactly. "Whatever the reasons for renewed interest in Romney, Republicans would be well advised to move on." [rdbrewer]

And you may find yourself in a beautiful Oval Office...


Krauthammer’s Take: ‘I Thought the President Could No Longer Surprise Me. I Was Wrong’
"'[T]he president gets in front of the world and says, "I don’t have a strategy." If that is true, don’t say anything. Why do you announce that you don’t have a strategy?'" [rdbrewer]

The Atlantic: The 'Star Wars' George Lucas doesn’t want you to see
"In fact, it’s actually impossible to buy an official copy of Star Wars as it was first released. Lucas doesn’t want you to see that version. Instead, he wants you to watch the continuously updated special editions...." [rdbrewer]

Bill Whittle, Truth Revolt: The Republic of Bill
"What if a Conservatarian could design his own, small-government society? What would it look like, and how would it work?" [rdbrewer]


Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) Has No Home In Louisiana, Claims She Lives With Mommy And Daddy [rdbrewer]
BREAKING: Bardarbunga Erupts
Live stream of the Iceland volcano. It has been erupting under the glacier for several days. It just melted through. Added: Another live stream. More from Wired. [rdbrewer]

Erick Erickson: The Democrats’ problem: Obama’s coalition isn’t their coalition
"These people do not turn out for other Democrats in off year elections. And in on-year elections, they turn out committed to Barack Obama." [rdbrewer]

Obama: We don't have a strategy for dealing with ISIS
Yes, he said that. More from Jake Tapper, The Lead. [rdbrewer]

MSM Hypocrisy Has No Lower Limit: "NCIS" Lawsuit claims CBS stopped purchasing Bert the Farting Hippo dolls from company that owns copyright and started importing cheap unlicensed Berts from China. What's their take on American jobs again? [krak/t]
Billboard: Album Sales Hit A New Low
Via Drudge. "As streaming gathers momentum, the U.S. music industry keeps breaking sales milestones -- the wrong kind. This week's 3.97-million album sales tally is the smallest weekly sum for album sales since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking data in 1991." [rdbrewer]
