Here is SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt. This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region.

The Bard of the Redoubt over at The Charles Carroll Society has started a new YouTube channel. You can subscribe to it here.) He has produced an interesting series of videos covering the situation in South Africa. And his video titled How to Defeat Active Jamming with Existing Equipment may be useful for both those facing farm attacks in South Africa and for preppers on this side of the pond.

In 2017, the iconic Going-to-the-Sun Road over Logan Pass at Glacier National Park didn’t open until June 28th.

  1. Senator Jon Tester is a traitor and oath-breaker to the Constitution. Sadly, even Montana has enough cities full of Socialists to elect such a despicable representative.

    1. Sadly the same problem exists in every state. A very few counties actually make the decision who the U.S. senator will be. In Michigan, all it takes is as few as 8 or 9 counties out of 83 to re-elect, in our case, Debbie Stabenow.

      Worse still the Michigan Republican Party can’t seem to get their act together enough to run anyone against her. Our one shot this year was, of all people, Kid Rock; and he pulled out.
