This comment is for honest people. NO ONE here at Survivalblog is a traitor to the democratic principles of the USA!

About: ~On February 27, 2012, Wikileaks begins disclosing 5 million e-mails stolen from private intelligence company Stratfor.~

A number of ordinary people want to keep ~private family matters very ~private. When talking to family members around the USA, the email servers and telephones might NOT be a safe place to discuss things.

Survivalblog has excellent information about using Ham Radios, especially during emergencies.
The villainous people already know the government can >spy on people. Plus, private organizations will release ‘private’ information, that can be embarrassing to people. It might be a large ‘information’ dump, or it could be information selected for a >laugh. Many private organizations generate views, advertising revenue, by selecting information that is embarrassing to ordinary people.

We’ve all seen ‘public mug pictures’ of people arrested. The pictures are chosen for a laugh sometimes, at someone else’s expense. The private organizations laugh all the way to the bank.
Here is an example of a very smart person using Ham Radio to maybe ‘hide’ her nefarious plans:
“Did Fusion GPS’s Anti-Trump Researcher Avoid Surveillance With A Ham Radio?
It seems Nellie Ohr was well aware the National Security Agency can intercept and store every communication on the Internet. Did that affect her decision to become a ham radio operator?”
[See TheFederalist 3/2/2018 for the complete article.

People reading Survivalblog may wish to buy a Ham Radio setup for Emergency Communications, and to talk about private family matters with their relatives.
The people at SurvivalBlog are >honest people, and support the democratic process set out in the US Constitution.
