SurvivalBlog presents another edition of The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods – a collection of news bits and pieces that are relevant to the modern survivalist and prepper from “HJL”. Today’s focus is on liberal-progressive terrorism.
Reader K. sent in this YouTube video of a confrontation with a woman calling for the death of Alex Jones. She states “Her attitude is scary. She is supposed to be a teacher but I’m not sure how that was determined. I have no respect for the boyfriend/husband that would tolerate this woman’s views. I think people need to see this video so they can make a calculation as to what we are up against.” There is certainly a double standard that the liberal progressives hold.

A Union County Democrat has called for Republicans to be hunted. James Devine posted several messages on Facebook following the DC shooting. Liberals are quick to call “hate speech” on anyone that disagrees with them, but this fits that category like no other.

A truck flying a “Make America Great Again” flag was shot at in Indiana. Apparently a driver who didn’t like the message pulled up next to the pickup on the freeway, pulled a hand gun and shot several times. Thankfully, no one was injured, but no arrests have been made yet. Thanks to reader T.P. for the link.
Main Stream Media Lies
It looks like Alex Jones scooped Megan Kelly as she was trying to scoop him. Reader DSV sent in this story showing how Megan attempted to soft-sell an interview and then pounced on Alex during the interview in a fashion she promised wouldn’t happen. NBC then released a preview showing the interview (at least in-part) edited to make Alex look even worse. There’s just one problem. Alex Jones recorded the entire interview, including the pre-interview. He has now released much of that recording in advance of NBC’s airing of their edited version and they are now scrambling. I wouldn’t be surprised if this costs Kelly dearly.
For those that like the rocket stove concept, I just heard about a family owned business in Oklahoma that makes one. Fire in the Hole Stoves only makes one style of stove, but it’s made well and works.

Reader T.J. sent in this link to vlogger Canadian Prepper on Wysi Wipes. They are dry, compressed towelettes that expand when wet into a nice sturdy, biodegradable wet wipe. You can get a pack of 100 on Amazon and while you there, pick up a waterproof match box to put about 7 of them in to keep in your pocket.
Canning Potatoes Redux
Reader Ken Lowder sent in a link to his blog on canning potatoes. This is a better method that what we mentioned before and they certainly look more appetizing. He’s been busy canning and documenting and you’ll find lots of stuff there, including stewed tomatoes, beef, beef stew, and more. Have look at it.
Sometimes Europeans seem to have a handle on privacy issues and other times they don’t. Reader GG sent in this article showing how some Swedish commuters are having their travel card embedded in their hands as a matter of convenience. Do they not realize how easy it makes it to track people with this system?
