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”. Interestingly enough, NASA was practicing their asteroid early warning communications.
Reader DSV sent in this link outlining some of the inconsistencies and quick conclusions that the anti-gun crowd have over the Las Vegas shooting. They include differences in times, unknown motivation while simultaneously being a large scale operation with contingencies.It’s becoming harder and harder to accept the formal explanation. About the only thing we know for sure at this point is that TPTB want your guns.
Peoples Republic of Kalifornia
California Governor Jerry Brown signed an order that lowers the penalty for knowingly exposing a sex partner to HIV from a felony to a misdemeanor. Under the guise of claiming HIV is only a health issue, the state has now declined to treat those with HIV using it as a weapon as criminals. Of course, I don’t think anyone was asking to treat them as criminals just because they were HIV positive in the first place. It was only when the disease was wielded as a weapon that it was a felony. I suppose we can now expect firearms related crimes to be considered a misdemeanor in California? Oh wait, they don’t want any firearms there. Thanks to M. for the link.
YouTube has announced that it will expand it’s policy against harmful and dangerous content to include content that shows viewers how to modify firearms to “increase the rate of fire”. It also states that it will ban videos that sell and promote firearms. As of right now, several firearms related channels are still up and operating so it’s not know to what extent this new policy will have on those channels. As an alternative source of gun videos, JWR recommends full30.com. Thanks to reader T.P. for the link.
Reader T.J. sent in this video from PragerU which outlines it’s grievances against the SPLC. Originally founded as a watchdog against “hate” groups, it has transformed itself into the premier attack group of those who support hate and racism and especially those who disagree with it. it the one of the foremost intolerant groups in existence. It has moved so far left that being described called out by the SPLC is almost a badge of honor for conservatives.
Asteroid Strike Rehearsal
A recent close fly-by of a house sized asteroid afforded NASA an opportunity to test their strike threat warning system. Asteroid 2012 TC4 passed inside of the Moon’s orbit and allowed the communications network to pass critical information back and forth. Despite some system not working (such as the damaged facility in Puerto Rico), they have declared the test a success.
Experts are warning that the U.S. is not prepared for a flu pandemic. Of concern is the fact that most of the 30 most common drugs are all made outside of the U.S. borders making it difficult to source the drugs in an emergency. A pandemic in India or China could have a significant impact on the ability of the U.S. to source those drugs as well.

Please send your news tips to HJL. (Either via e-mail of via our Contact form.) These are often especially relevant, because they come from folks who watch news that is important to them. Due to their diligence and focus, we benefit from fresh “on target” news. We often “get the scoop” on news that is most likely ignored (or reported late) by mainstream American news outlets. Thanks!
