The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods

SurvivalBlog presents another edition of The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods. It is a collection of news bits and pieces. They are relevant to the modern survivalist and prepper.  Today’s column was compiled by  JWR.  This column is posted each Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. (This alternates with our Economics & Investing column. That is posted on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.) Today’s focus is on Qatar.


First, Bloomberg reports: Saudi-Led Alliance Cuts Ties With Qatar. JWR’s Comment: This move should have been made five years ago! Oddly, this article hardly even mentions Great Britain. For many years the Brits pulled the strings in Qatar. Many billions in Qatari natural gas money have gone to Britain.  But the revulsion point has clearly been reached.

Czech Republic

Next, Pat Cascio suggested a bit of common sense, as reported by the leftist Washington Post. Czech government tells its citizens how to fight terrorists: Shoot them yourselves. JWR’s Comment: Note the blatantly condescending tone of this biased article. (“Never mind that there are fewer than 4,000 Muslims in this country of 10 million people …”). But the Czech government’s push for self-preservation cannot be faulted. The Prague Daily Monitor‘s reporting on this topic is much better.  The Czech Republic’s response to the Islamist invasion has been sound. “Don’t let them in.”  Ditto for their neighbor Hungary. Meanwhile, most other European nations have opened the floodgates. And yet they wonder why their streets are getting wet, with blood.


On to this: Gotland: Western sentinel in the Baltic seaJWR’s Comment: It is interesting  to see Sweden continuing to re-arm. In many ways, the world is a dangerous place. Much more dangerous than during the Cold War.


Next, the Slow Slide Scenario continues: 2017: Zimbabwe’s journey to nowhere continues


Continuing on. He is some follow-up about the recent radical Islamist terror attacks in England. Reader Tim J. suggested this video by Lauren Southern: We Let Hate Win. #London

And then there is this bit of rubbish: British media caught literally creating a fake news scene

New York

Lastly, over at IWB: The Democrats May Have Decided on Their “Trump Candidate” for 2020JWR’s Comment: Most SurvivalBlog readers are familiar with the name Michael Bloomberg.  It is synonymous with Perfidy. Especially relevant: He is a rabid gun grabber. Bloomberg has poured hundreds of millions from his fortune into “gun control.” He co-founded Mayors Against Illegal Guns. That group had its image tarnished so badly by member mayors getting convicted of various crimes that they changed their name. The gun ban advocacy group is now named Everytown For Gun Safety. Same civilian disarmament agenda, just under a new moniker.



  1. British media caught literally creating a fake news scene IS NOT RUBBISH!!!

    It is the worst kind of propaganda used by communists in former socialist countries! This is the reason that former socialist countries recognize BS when they see it, because people there were subjected to it for 40 years and are thoroughly immunized against this kind of manipulation, unlike the people in the west.

  2. I truly believe ( and I may be off track ) with the amount of migrants coming in across the US , Europe Canada as well as Australia, the underline hidden agenda is Not only the OTTOMAN empire Part2 , But with the UN small arms treaty imposed in Canada shortly as well as the increase of Muslim extremists AKA Terrorists attacks …..the signs to me are going to be alot of angry patriotic people who love the country so much that it will be the line in the sand which in turn will lead to an all out Martial law across the globe …..But I could be out to lunch on this ….sure hope to God I am

  3. Maxine Waters 2020

    Yes, I know no one in their right minds would want her to be te nominee, but consider that the left has lost its’ collective mind.

  4. So now we are to embrace Saudi Arabia, home of the 9/11 hijackers? We Americans pick good nations and bad nations like we are playing fantasy football. Exactly who do we think we are?

    George Washington’s Farewell Address was arguably the most important address on US soil. This true Christian warned us about ‘foreign entanglements’.
