Yet Ted Cruz is the one who stopped Obamas immigration reform.

So I guess you're right. Ted Cruz stood in the way of immigration reform. Obamas immigration reform, that would have legalized millions.

Damn that Ted Cruz, standing in the way of Obamas master plan.

And Donald Trump doesn't like it. So obviously Trump is for Obamas immigration reform, since he is attacking Cruz for stopping it.

That's not a surprise at all, Trump is a Democrat after all.

Makes me wonder what Trump would do if he was forced to tell the truth? Not that it matters, you'll support him even if he gives Obama a blowjob.

The nation, nay the world, will never take seriously a supposed 'leader' afflicted with such a nasty disfiguring - and disqualifying - case of Gay Face.

It's too hideous!

The bureau at least needs a subpoena. Im not sure about the NSA or Homeland Security.

In my opinion, they must show PROBABLE CAUSE . In this case, they actually DO have probable cause. I dont think Apple wants to come off as loose with info that most people in the business of investigatios already KNOW is available.

This is a case of therte is probable cause but nobody wants ro worry that THEIR phones could and would be unlocked...perhaps WITHOUT that probable cause.

John McAfee offers to unlock killer's iPhone for FBI
Anti-virus software creator John McAfee has said he will break the encryption on an iPhone that belonged to San Bernardino killer Syed Farook.

Mr McAfee made the offer to the FBI in an article published by Business Insider.
Apple has refused to comply with a court order asking it to unlock the device, dividing opinion over whether the firm should be compelled to do so.
Mr McAfee said he and his team would take on the task "free of charge".
The offer came as Mr McAfee continues his campaign as a US presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party.
"It will take us three weeks," he claimed in his article.
Security expert Graham Cluley told the BBC he was sceptical of Mr McAfee's claims.
"The iPhone is notoriously difficult to hack compared to other devices," he said.
'Dead men's tales'
For instance, Mr Cluley cast doubts on Mr McAfee's idea that he could use "social engineering" to work out the pass-code of Farook's locked iPhone.
This is a process by which hackers try to find out login credentials by tricking people into giving them away.
"In a nutshell, dead men tell no tales," said Mr Cluley. "Good luck to Mr McAfee trying to socially engineer a corpse into revealing its pass-code."
"The FBI isn't interested anyway, they want to set a precedent that there shouldn't be locks they can't break," he added.

In his article, Mr McAfee stated that he was keen to unlock the device because he didn't want Apple to be forced to implement a "back door" - a method by which security services could access data on encrypted devices.
Chief executive of Apple Tim Cook had previously said in a statement that the firm did not want to co-operate.
He argued that introducing a back door would make all iPhones vulnerable to hacking by criminals.
'I would eat shoe'
Mr McAfee believes that it would be possible to retrieve data from the phone by other means - though he did not give many details of how it would be done.
"I would eat my shoe on the Neil Cavuto [television] show if we could not break the encryption on the San Bernardino phone," he added.
