Throughout the history of the Republic, traitorous and treasonous have held a broader, more generic meaning for treason than the one found in the U.S. Constitution. The rebellious founders, having themselves been traitors to the British Crown—and being fully familiar with how English treason laws had been extended and abused in what was then the not-very-distant past—the drafters wisely kept to the narrowest of definitions in the first paragraph of Article III, Section 3:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

Apple has announced that it’ll soon stop allowing HTTPS certificates in Safari with more than 13 months of validity.
Conservative activist Chuck Muth said that he temporarily switched parties to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in the Nevada caucuses.
Muth, who spoke to the Las Vegas Journal-Review while wearing a red Keep America Great hat, explained that he had crossed over to “vote for the weakest candidate possible of the Democrats.”
“It was kind of a way of demonstrating how absurd I think it is to have same-day registration as well as early voting for a caucus,” Muth explained. “So my wife and I last Sunday went to an early voting site, we changed parties right there on the spot. We caucused for Bernie.”
“It would be a dream election,” he added. “The nightmare would be if Sanders won, of course. But, look, if Bernie Sanders can beat Donald Trump, we’ve already lost it.”

We saw leaked images of the Huawei MatePad Pro 5G last year, looking almost exactly like Apple’s iPad Pro with Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil. The device has now been launched, and yep, the leaked images were right …

This year, our nominee is going to be a progressive. Bernie Sanders is the clear front-runner right now. Even though only 1.7% of delegates have been assigned, Sanders has leads in upcoming states (including delegate-rich California). Things can change! But as of now, things are looking good for him to amass a strong plurality of delegates.
Elizabeth Warren, on the other hand, is off to a woeful start. So why is she the best positioned candidate to give Sanders a run for his money?
If there’s one thing the Washington pundit class suffers from, it’s a lack of imagination. Once one person says something that everyone thinks sounds smart, it catches on like wildfire, it quickly becomes conventional wisdom, and anyone who says anything different is obviously stupid.
The latest conventional wisdom is that the Democratic primary is playing out just like the 2016 GOP primary did, with the anti-establishment candidate—Donald Trump/Bernie Sanders—running away with the whole thing while his competitors are powerless to stop him. It’s totally possible, and even probable at this point, that Sanders ultimately will win the Democratic nomination, but below are two graphs that show the Democratic primary looks nothing like the Republican primary in 2016.
Three of the four early states—the states that go one by one and get individual attention from both the candidates and the media—have voted in the Democratic presidential primary, boosting Sen. Bernie Sanders into a clear-cut position as the leader in the race. Now the strategy changes as candidates look past South Carolina, which votes on February 29, to Super Tuesday on March 3, when 14 states vote.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is counting on South Carolina to boost him with black voters in key Super Tuesday states by showing that his candidacy is still viable. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been using his massive personal fortune to carpet-bomb the airwaves in Super Tuesday states, the first states where he will be on the ballot. Other candidates, meanwhile, are trying to shift quickly from focusing on individual states to a multi-state race.
This would permit the next iPhone to support Apple's rumored augmented reality headset by connecting to a dedicated box via the speedy wireless standard.
Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said back in September of last year that Apple was working on new mini-LED iPad models, to be launched sometime around the end of 2020, or beginning of 2021.
There’s now corroboration for that report, a supply-chain report claiming that Apple has now placed orders for these after approving earlier samples …

If the Republicans learned anything from the 2016 election season, it is this: threatening investigations and congressional hearings work. It doesn't matter if there have been multiple investigations already, with no findings of wrongdoing. It doesn't matter if the threat comes from the fevered brains of alt-right conspiracy sites (actually, that is preferred). It doesn't matter if it makes any frickin' sense at all.
Most Americans won't follow it carefully enough to parse out cynical political moves from authentic attempts at oversight. They'll just get the sense that there's something vaguely sinister about the subjects of the investigation and the grandstanding of calling witnesses and insinuating their affiliation with a vaguely-defined deep state. It all adds up to boffo ratings for their own particular audience of one: Donald Trump.
So even though Trump's own Justice department declined to prosecute former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Chief Trump Enabler Lindsey Graham is about to haul him and a dozen other Trump bogeymen/women to get down to the bottom of...of....something::
Apple's high-end iPad Pro should make a jump from the current LCD panels straight to the superior mini-LED displays that offer many of the OLED benefits while allowing for thinner, lighter designs
Donald Trump continues his march to autocracy, planning his largest purge of government officials yet. And he’s getting outside help in assembling his enemies list, with a conservative activist network headed by Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, providing a stream of memos detailing how some administration officials have been insufficiently loyal to Trump.
The pieces are being put in place. Trump is getting ready to push the purge with a new head of presidential personnel—his former body man, Johnny McEntee, who was fired by then-White House chief of staff John Kelly in 2018. And Groundswell, the Ginni Thomas group, helped push former national security adviser H.R. McMaster out of office, and is not remotely done, Axios reports.
iOS 14 may allow users to choose between the current app switcher backs on a deck of app cards and a new iPad-style grid multitasking.
