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 video on South African farmland is a must see. This is a country in a serious crises.
Active Shooter Training
Have you ever wondered what you would do in an active shooter situation? Mike Williamson, SurvivalBlog’s Editor at Large sent in this short active shooter training video  he ran across on YouTube. It gives you a taste of training and some scenarios to think about. thinks are radically different that what you see and hear on TV. In real life, gun fire does not sound like it does on TV. Shooters do not act like they do on TV and not every bad person is stupid or makes stupid mistakes. If you are in a public situation, you need to know what your capabilities are beforehand and you need to have the proper frame of mind to act quickly and decisively. Watch this video and make the decision as to whether you need to seek further training.
Gun Free Utopia
Reid Henrichs, another one of my favorite vloggers, has a video out explaining the gun free utopia  that the progressive left so desires. In this utopia, only the authorized representatives of the government have access to firearms and all people live in peace. so what is the reality of that utopia? Parkland. In that situation, a “bad guy” came on scene and only an authorized representative of the government had a firearm where he could respond effectively. He didn’t have a vested interest in protecting those kids as the authority to carry that weapon was only a “job” to him and he allowed the massacre to continue without getting involved. So now you know. What is the true gun free utopia? It’s simple a victim rich location. thanks to T.J. for the link.
No 1st Amendment Right Equivalent in Sweden
Reader H.L. sent in this article that serves as a stark reminder that not all countries enjoy the constitutionally protected rights that we have in the United States. A Swedish woman shared a meme  on social media that criticized Islam. I actually like the meme and think it’s quite funny and an accurate figurative description. But in Sweden, a country that has become a feminist utopia and a bastion for multiculturalism and cultural Marxism, that is a crime punishable by two years in prison. Of course, we’re not talking about Mexican prisons here. Swedish prisons are apparently pretty close to vacation resorts, but still, who would have thought that sharing a mildly offensive (but accurate) meme on social media was crime-think.
Reader H.L. also sent this narrative  written by a Venezuelan photographer that traveled with a group of people attempting to escape the social disaster that Venezuela has become. It is a short narrative, without pictures, but it is heart rending as the author describes some of the lives that he traveled with on a bus as they fled the country, trying to find a better life than what they had. Many left behind loved ones who still face the daily dangers of violence, muggings and a corrupt government. It’s a worthwhile read.
South Africa Farmland
Lauren Southern continues her series on the plight of South Africa in this video , focusing on how the the current drought is killing the land. farmers are watching their lands waste away while corruption and the anti-white racism rampant in the government keeps any form of aid from reaching the white farmers. They can no longer afford to run the machinery or pump water from wells to water the crops.
InfoWars Third Strike on YouTube
YouTube’s war on conservative voices continues as InfoWars gets a third strike . This time, the offending video has already been hit, appealed by InfoWars and reinstated and now hit again. It is apparent that there is a concerted effort of liberal/progressives to use YouTube’s automated system to silence conservative voices. Thanks to S.M. for the link.

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!
