  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • Massie opposes govt. war on privacy

    Occasionally politicians slip up and reveal their true intentions.  In DC, this is called “committing candor.”  While indirectly discussing his administration’s effort in the courts to force Apple to develop a software key to unlock iPhones, President Obama recently admitted this battle is not just about a single terrorist’s iPhone in San Bernardino.
