Our FEATURE today focuses on the recent WikiLeaks bomb of thousands of documents revealing how the CIA can hack into our servers, PCs, smartphones, TVs, voice activated devises etc that then act as "bugs" to record our conversations and remit to the CIA. For example you may believe that your TV is turned off but it's in "fake off mode" and can record all your communication. Voice activated devices such as Alexa, Echo and Home are perfect listening devices connecting to the "internet of everything". The CIA is legally prohibited from conducting electronic surveillance but they currently have no oversight. Next week we'll discuss how these efforts to invade our privacy and avoid extortion can be mitigated. Other topics include: The Ides of March, the Jobs Report, the plunge in oil, The FED, Bit Coin, Arizona's Legal Tender Law, VPLM assumes a power position, Obama's "Slush Fund", Illinois' "Zombie Preparedness Month, The Left's McCarthyism and the Dutch Trump.
