Bikkannavar says he was detained by US Customs and Border Patrol and pressured to give the CBP agents his phone and access PIN. Since the phone was issued by NASA, it may have contained sensitive material that wasn’t supposed to be shared. Bikkannavar’s phone was returned to him after it was searched by CBP, but he doesn’t know exactly what information officials might have taken from the device.

"Sorry honey, but you can't have your spaghetti with tomato sauce tonight. See, the tomato pickers had to leave the fields, lest we deport them. And I really wasn't in a position to pay a buck more for the sauce, so American workers were out of the question. Yes, of course I could've fought for higher wages, but you have to understand, that's bloody socialism, and that will be our downfall."

If this turns out to be true, then sure hope someone on the right, ANYONE speaks out.


But there is something about the phone story that makes me question what's going on here. If this was truly a NASA issued phone then 1) there is no expected privacy, and 2) they would have access without a PIN.

It looks like they found out it was NASA-owned after he mentioned it. Government devices are typically well protected with encryption, pins, etc.

Which would just speak to the atrocious way this order was put together if they're running into issues like this.


If this turns out to be true then every one of you Trump supporters that used to claim "small government" and "big brother" I expect to speak out, and I will hold your feet to fire until you do.

I also love the insinuation that a child is only "legitimate" if they're brought into the family in a "traditional" way. 'Cause calling a child illegitimate isn't an insult to them and their family, and won't mess them up mentally and emotionally at all, apparently.


You know what's next. Tenesssee couple brings their kid to the local Jesus school, after the state is only too happy to go along with some future insane DeVos pro-religious charter school insanity, and prior to enrollment the school is like "now here on the form, you didn't check the box saying your child was conceived in the missionary position, if he wasn't, then he is not legitimate and cannot attend our school."

Trump's Merica:

Bigoted Valentine card causes uproar, anger at CMU student group

It's the Trump double edge, bigoted and historically inaccurate.

Keep telling yourself bigotry had nothing to do with this election, go ahead, keep telling yourself that.

Honestly wouldn't surprise me one bit, this scenario.

While I obviously agree that bigotry played a part in Trump's election, stupid frat bros have been doing stupid frat bro things for a long time, so I can't blame this on President Agent Orange.

True, but I keep hearing from Trumpets the feeling of emboldenment they have to be themselves now without the fear of having to be "pc".

I hope more and more expose themselves for who they are.

I agree with that, but at the same time if everything complain and blame everything on Trump, the real stuff gets lost. It's pretty much part of their strategy; flood the airwaves so they can sneak things by

There are now daily reports of refugees crossing the border into Canada in the middle of winter. Over 20 in a Manitoba border town, more in Winnipeg (their centres say they have no more capacity), some 40+ into Quebec. It's -20Celsius, these people are walking through miles of fields with knee- or ass-deep snow. One man (I think from Ghana?) lost all his fingers except the thumbs due to frostbite.

I would say this is deeply shameful if you are an American but my guess is the Trump supporters are more of a "good riddance" sort.

So maybe we should build a wall and make Trump pay for it?
