Re: The Armed Protest at the State Capital is a ruse - do not fall for it

This type of action will add fuel to the Democrats' attempt to pass a domestic terrorists bill. People need to remember that they hold the House, Senate and White House. Biden will appoint all ... ALL U.S. Attorneys.

Re: Alternate Comms

All they need to shut down ham radio is some kind of precipitating event to use as an excuse. For example, somebody sets off a bomb, and investigators find out they planned it using ham radio. Pow, it'd be shut down in a heartbeat. Shutting down ham radio would not be easy at all. Hundreds of thous...
