Yes. It is quite probable that the CIA has hacking tools...and that someone in the CIA has compromised and leaked said tools...or at least the basics of said tools.

I thought I was clicking preview but clicked post instead.

When I read this article I figured this is what trump's noise was all about with his finger pointing at Obama wire tapping Trump towers . just a guess ,,,,

listening in here would be c comparable to being stationed in the North pole alone with no batteries for your radio ,,,,
I pity the poor guy that draws the short straw to listen in here at my place. there are times that for days on end the only 'human ' voice heard around here is from a music CD or DVD movie. I don't always answer the phone , and i will at times lock my gate and won't get any company for a week or so .

When I talk on the phone, text, send emails, post things on social media, I like to randomly use words like "bomb, threat, assassination, terror, al Qaeda, ISIS, etc"

It makes me feel like I am important knowing that someone in the government is paying attention to me.

The board shut down a few days before "the big day" haha - and pointed people to a facebook page. I didn't follow...
