Instagram Gets Hacked


Application Programming Interface (API) – Bug Exploited


So it appears that Instagram got hacked and users cell phone numbers and email addresses were compromised according to messages Instagram began sending to users today.


“We recently discovered that one or more individuals obtained unlawful access to a number of high-profile Instagram users’ contact information  specifically email address and phone number  by exploiting a bug in an Instagram API, no account passwords were exposed. We fixed the bug swiftly and are running a thorough investigation.”

Instagram has yet to disclose just how many users are affected by this hack, according to Instagram they see roughly 700 million users a month and, they notified every verified registered user which might very well mean that, the number of users whose information was compromised is pretty high.

Instagram has not given the exact number of how many verified registered users it actually has. So far those were the accounts that were the target of the hack, however all of you unregistered users should still go for the two-factor authentication in order to secure your accounts.


It also looks as if a lone hacker committed the hack.

Many suspect that the lone hacker was after high profile users of Instagram which translates to users more along the lines of celebrities.

Either way, for users of Instagram this news was not welcomed with open arms.

In a world where everything is online, nothing is 100% safe from hackers, just when you think you’ve gotten one backdoor or bug fixed another one creeps up.

North Korea – Practices the Art of War…Again

North - Korea-Fires -Missile-Over - Japan-CrimeShop

Kim Jong Un – North Korea Shoots Missile Over Japan

“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.” – The Art of War, Sun Tzu


Well it looks as if Kim Jong Un, who graciously gave the world a much needed breather has decided that our break-time is over, flexing his missile power by shooting just that, over Japan.

Of course he is simply just testing the range of his missiles, in preparations for something bigger naturally or he is testing the patience of the world. 

According to some news outlets Kim Jong Un reportedly said that the missile was intended for Guam.

But the question is, will he actually go through with trying to start a war he may or may not be able to afford let alone survive?

“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win”

I mean, it was rumored just yesterday as a matter of fact that he possibly has a third child now? That is according to reports coming from South Korea and that very well could explain exactly just why he suspended his efforts to start a war. Perhaps he was waiting on the child’s first words, or some special occasion for it.

Kim Jong Un could very well be playing games with us altogether by making it appear that his military capabilities are much weaker than they truly are.

Then again he could also be attempting to make his nation’s military capabilities appear much stronger than they truly are.

The problem is, we are not entirely sure just how advanced North Korea’s Nuclear program is or is not as of today. 

Is the world ready to fight back not knowing what exactly Kim has sitting in his back pocket?

“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”  

So far that plan has been to employ the use of sanctions, i.e. cutting the head off of the snake if you will. By decreasing the amount of money going into North Korea, the hope is that it will slow, if not halt the funds going into North Korea’s nuclear weapons program and military efforts that lean towards starting a war with any other nation.

Kim should really think about the true Art of War, because he just may lose this battle which will in the end cost him his beloved North Korea.

Taking much needed money from an already poor and struggling economy takes money from the working class, it also carries potentially severe consequences.

Consequences the world may not be willing to protect Kim Jong Un from.

“All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.”

Portland – Hangry Patrons Revolt Over Failed Taco Fest


Portland, Oregon First Annual Taco Fest – Features No Tacos

Apparently the organizers of Portland, Oregon’s first ever two day Taco Fest forgot that actually having Taco’s at the festival was pretty important.


The event promised entertainment, fun and many, many beloved taco’s but…the food trucks ran out of taco’s within the first 90 minutes which was met with a hangry crowd of patrons who had paid to get into the event.


The Portland police actually had to show up because the a crowd of angry patrons elected to around the on-site organizer and demanded a refund of $17.50 the cost of each ticket.  

Attendee’s were also upset by the lack of Taco options at the event, some took to social media to inform the world that the event only had 3 possibly 4 trucks that offered taco’s the rest of the food trucks were your typical, Asian Foods, BBQ, Burgers, etc.

The event organizers did offer an apology on its website, stating  “technical issues”  compromised the food vendors ability to prep the food before the event started, which led to long wait times and frustrated customers.

The patrons of the event however would certainly still beg to differ, the issue it seems was a complete lack of beloved tacos.


Because the event was a complete and utter failure within the first 90 minutes, resulting in a hangry crowd, it was canceled on Sunday.

This should be a lesson learned, you do not come between people and the promise of tacos, at least not in Portland.

Donald Trump’s –  “insufficient attention” to threats to America’s Cybersecurity


Causes White House’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council Mass Resignation

8 members (out of 28) of the White House National Infrastructure Advisory Council elected to mass resign over Donald Trump’s lackadaisical views with regards to America’s cybersecurity and for his rather inept thoughts with regards to the violence in Charlottesville.

According to the resignation letter; “You have given insufficient attention to the growing threats to the cybersecurity of the critical systems upon which all Americans depend, including those impacting the systems supporting our democratic election process.”


Correct me if I am wrong here but doesn’t Trump give “insufficient” attention to almost all matters in relation to America? He only speaks for and cares for himself, nothing more or less than that.

And the part of the letter in direct response to Trump’s views about the violence in Charlottesville;

“In taking on this duty, I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Today, that oath compels me to resign. The moral infrastructure of our Nation is the foundation on which our physical infrastructure is built. The Administration’s actions undermine that foundation.”

It’s been rumored that several businesses leaders, members of the media, special councils and members of them, have begun to sever ties with Trump over his feelings with regards to Charlottesville.

mentally -unfit_trump_crimeshop

What’s more is that Trump’s approval rating keeps hitting new lows, in fact, he has actually hit the lowest mark ever for any president in US history during his first year. You would think after 7 months in he would be striving for more here.

Trump’s current approval rating is sitting at 34% which is worse than President Barack Obama’s ever was.

No president in history has sat this long under 40%, and Trump has gracefully managed that feat with about the same effort that he puts into actually being a president, behaving like a president and just overall being a decent human being.

Bravo Mr. President, Bravo.

Trump Shutting Down United States Government?

Insane - Donald- Trump-CrimeShop

Weak and Cowardly Trump to US Congress, Fund the Wall or I’ll Huff and I’ll Puff…and I’ll…

Shut down the United States Government.

I have to admit, Trump’s newest threat seems like a nursery rhyme/bedtime, nightmare inducing story, although it does have a catchy ring to it right?

However catchy it sounds, is that really realistic?

No. Seems like a wee bit of a stretch/temper tantrum coming from the mouth of a 2 year old who didn’t get what it wanted…again.  


To be really realistic, the truth of the matter is that Trump is starting to get desperate, nothing major that he campaigned on has come about. He couldn’t get healthcare through, not to mention that his travel ban has so far been a complete and utter failure.

mentally -unfit_trump_crimeshop

So in ridiculous fashion Trump made an outright threat to Republicans late Tuesday, he threatened to shut down the government in a matter of weeks if Congress did not fund the wall on the southern border that was a signature promise of his campaign for the White House.

“If we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall”  Trump told a raucous rally in Phoenix as his supporters chanted, “Build that wall!”

“The American people voted for immigration control that’s one of the reasons I’m here,” he added. “One way or the other, we’re going to get that wall.”

Incorrect, the American people did not ever, at any time vote to build a wall, not even sure all of those that voted for Trump did.

That’s what Trump promised and quite frankly, no one gives a crap as to whether or not he can make that happen.

We do have much bigger issues in this nation and in the world that should and need to be addressed.  

Second, because people can’t seem to grasp this, this nation was actually built by immigrants to it, simply put, we stole this nation from it’s natural born inhabitants for no other reason other than our ancestors could.

We certainly did not need it, but our ancestors sure did murder for it.


At any rate only a weak coward makes threats, especially those he has no power to actually come through with.

That’s right in case anyone is wondering or the mainstream media failed to point it out, Trump in fact does not have the sole power and authority to shut the US Government like he plays it out in his weak and fragile little mind.

“The nation that will insist on drawing a broad line of demarcation between the fighting man and the thinking man is liable to find its fighting done by fools and its thinking done by cowards.”  ― William Francis Butler

Mainstream Media and it’s Dirty Little Secret


Donald Trump’s Mental Fitness Question – Brian Stelter and CNN

In some rather funny news CNN host Brian Stelter is facing criticism for revealing that he and other members of mainstream media often times sit back and openly discuss/question whether or not Donald Trump is truly mentally fit.  


Apparently during Sunday’s edition of “Reliable Sources,” Brian Stelter said conversations about Trump’s mental fitness were happening “in newsrooms and TV studios” in the not shocking wake of Trump’s response to the previous weekend’s violence between white nationalists and counter-protesters and Charlottesville, Va.


“Usually after the microphones are off, or after the stories are filed, after the paper has been put to bed, people’s concerns, and fears and questions come out…Question like these: Is the president of the United States a racist? Is he suffering from some kind of illness? Is he fit for office? And if he’s unfit, then what?”

My first assumption is always that Trump either has mental health issues, is drunk or high or a combination of all 3. I lean heavily towards a strong combination of all 3.

I’m sorry here but I honestly fail to see why Brian is even facing a blink of the eye for making those comments, aren’t people worldwide already asking the same questions?

Trust me, everyone is asking those very same questions, so why would anyone in the media not be?

In fact, they should be and they should be reporting on that rather than the diatribe of playing nice and kissing Trump’s rosey red ass instead of going for the gold.

The truth is simple, clear and so very concise and, the world knows it.

Trump is a narcissist, a racist, a bigot, a womanizer and he lies, makes up facts that support his cause and only that. Trump’s only care is himself, what he believes in and what will make him more well known. He wants his name in history and nothing more or less than that.

He has not a true care for doing what is right, what serves his nation’s best interests, just his own.  

The US Presidency is nothing more than just another notch in Trump’s proverbial belt, his personal road of riches.

He is not mentally fit, more rather he is truly mentally unstable and very unsuitable to hold the office of the US Presidency.

Hey Brian, you deserve a medal.

Apple’s AirDrop – Being Used to Cyber Flash


Creepy Men Using AirDrop – to Drop Unwanted Dick Pics


Hopefully you are all aware of this new thing, creepy men are using Apple’s AirDrop feature to drop annoying dick pic’s on unsuspecting women.

Here’s the problem, in AirDrop you can send pics of whatever you’d like without AirDrop revealing your identity. You can even send video using AirDrop, which I am sure creeps are attempting to do as I type this.

AirDrop is available on all Apple Devices and it works from as far away as 30 feet.

The recipients cannot block the sender they can only see the sender’s username.

So now, disgusting pigs who are roaming around disguised as men worldwide are sending the ladies some rather disgusting and unwanted pics using AirDrop.


But, never fear because you can prevent some jerk sending over unwanted pictures, files and video.

For IOS (iPhones and IPads) swipe up from the bottom, you’ll be able to see if AirDrop is set to contacts only or everyone. You’ll want to change that to contacts only unless you don’t trust all of your contacts in which case you’ll just want to turn it off altogether.

On your Mac switch to finder and select AirDrop, you’ll find what you need at the bottom of the window where it says “Allow Me to Be Discovered.”

Once you’ve seen or dated one dick, you’ve pretty much seen them all, am I right ladies?

Missouri State Senator Wanted Trump Assassinated?

Maria Chappelle-Nadal-crimeshop

Missouri Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal

“He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster.” Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil

State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal-Crimeshop

When you fight hate with hate, it typically ends up being a no-win situation but that did not stop Missouri Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal from very publicly, on Facebook state that she hoped for Trump’s assassination.


Maria has since apologized for her bitter remarks with regards to Trump. At some point everyone should realize that Trump, the most disliked man in the world can and does tend to bring out the ugly in people. He’s a button pusher, he antagonizes, he lies, he says things publicly that are outrageous and insulting.

He relishes in knowing that his ill typed and spoken words do hurt others.

Words do in fact carry power, they can heal a nation or destroy it.

Maria Chappelle-Nadal, has since faced calls by Missouri’s top Democrats and Republicans demanding that she resign from the legislature for posting “I Hope Trump is assassinated!” on her personal Facebook, which is not open to the public, on Thursday.

While she quickly deleted the comment she posted, the U.S. Secret Service’s St. Louis field office is still investigating because she is not exempt from not being able to outright encourage the assassination of the President of the United States.

Maria Chappelle-Nadal has said that she isn’t resigning over the Facebook post however. And why should she? Trump has said and tweeted far worse.

Trump has continued to divide our nation, he has no power to heal it, save it or fix it because he himself is a hateful, spiteful, little obtuse, creature who enjoys using hate against others.

Hate is one of the most overused and powerful moves people make.

We can always make the choice to allow for hate to breed hate or, we can choose to fight hate in more intelligent ways.

Ways that Trump simply cannot grasp because intelligence would be utilized rather than hatred.

“Hatred is corrosive of a person’s wisdom and conscience; the mentality of enmity can poison a nation’s spirit, instigate brutal life and death struggles, destroy a society’s tolerance and humanity, and block a nation’s progress to freedom and democracy.” Liu Xiaobo

Donald Trump Suffers Head Injury?


Donald Trump’s Strange Behavior – Not Leadership Quality


I have to wonder if Trump sustained some sort of head injury we have yet to learn of because now he is back to blaming both sides with regards to Charlottesville, after just yesterday when he condemned white supremacists, the KKK, neo-nazis, basically any group that believes in “White Power.”

I mean the sad reality is, he simply just is not qualified to be a leader, at all. He is a self absorbed hateful little creature who can’t keep his story straight to save his own soul since he claims to be a God Fearing man.

He also claims to get all of the facts before he releases statements, which is total bullshit, unless of course he is including his made up facts, as actual facts.


The way this man thinks, forms opinions and states things is so disturbingly hideous that it makes the idea of speaking with the most dangerous, insane psychopath alone, in a locked room, seem like a delightful walk through a rose covered park.

Trump had a rather heated exchange today with reporters at Trump Tower in Manhattan, where he rejected bipartisan criticism for waiting so long before he even named those right wing groups and for placing blame on both the left and right on Saturday for the violence that erupted in Charlottesville.

Once again, the leader of our once great nation has shown the world with expert precision just how easy it is to destroy the US Presidency and turn it into a complete joke.

At least this time he didn’t show up to the press conference with something his mom wrote for him, instead he spoke right from the heart.

Can someone get this guy a mop and broom and let him be the White House janitor or something because that is about all that he is qualified to do.
