California Class

I am looking to schedule a GroundRod Primer course for the Northern/Central California area in the next 2-3 weeks. If you are interested email me directly as I am still working on a host.

Student Course Reviews from Texas, Georgia & Arizona Classes

Some recent reviews from students on the GroundRod Primer course...

****

I've been waiting since June 2013, and the initial Edward Snowden revelations of massive unconstitutional surveillance, for this class. I found GroundRod Primer to be an absolutely essential course for American citizens that want to regain privacy in their digital communications. After completing this class, and implementing even some of the recommendations, you will once again be able to express yourself freely via digital comms without the self-censorship that has become increasingly prevalent with the knowledge of illegal government spying. That is a GREAT feeling.

K covered the various types of encryption and the context in which each was most useful. Discussions on the best VPN providers (and why), email providers, passwords and passphrases were very useful. The discussion of crypto-currency was very interesting. K clarified how to best get started with Bitcoin and start using a payment method that cannot b…

A re-post for those that missed it...

Brisco strained against his leather collar, seemingly eager to leave the immediate area. Eva's 70 year old fingers snapped back on the disgruntled terrier's leash, but she could certainly understand his unease. Even though the neighborhood “safety checkpoints” had been a part of their daily life for the better part of the year, she never could resolve herself to see them as anything other than a 21st century re-envisioning of cold war east Germany. The pat downs, the scanning and downloading of her cell phone, the x-ray and search of her belongings just to get from one part of town to the other. Of course it was all necessary because of all the “terrorist activity” in the area; or so she was told.

Once inside her apartment, she began what had become a twice a week operation...removing Brisco's ornate leather collar...pulling back the stitching....retrieving the microSD card hidden between the leather laminate and beneath one of the several steel sequins that decorated his…

VPN Promo

Image
As many of you know, AirVPN is one of my recommended VPN providers. They are currently having an anniversary promotion until June 12 of 25% off any VPN plan. I encourage everyone to check it out  AirVPN SALE  , they also accept over 15 different crypto-currencies.

And remember...

1) When you connect to purchase a plan, do so via TOR, another VPN or an anonymous computer away from your home internet.

2) Pay with Bitcoin (properly mixed) or other crypto-currency. All that security/anonymity is ruined when you pay with your easily tracked Visa/MC/Bank account.

3) If they want a contact email address, use a seperate anonymous one that you use for nothing else, or better yet, a throw-away one from Yopmail, Guerrilla Mail, etc.

4) Have more than one VPN provider at your disposal.

5) And for the love of ******, use a strong 20 character password or passphrase.

It's "Brave New 1984" folks...............behave accordingly.
