The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods:

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”. There is an interesting video today on disguises.


From one of our advertisers:

Banned on YouTube?! Yes! AGI just received notice from YouTube that our Reloading A-Z Course sampler video has been Banned! Can you believe it?! This video was just excerpts from the actual course. Apparently because it teaches how-to reloading, they decided that it could no longer be posted on YouTube. Again, this wasn’t the whole course it was just sample sections and they still banned it! This is where the internet is going, Censorship by leftist fascists like YouTube, Google and Facebook. they have decided that they will control what information is available to you.

What you can see and what you can not! This is a blatant attack on your personal freedom and your access to information.Reloading has been around since the start of Metallic Cartridges in the mid-1800’s. While it does require care and attention, reloading is not some new evil underground form of terrorism. But they apparently think so. Look, I have been warning everyone, they are working to restrict your freedoms and I am Not going to put up with it and you shouldn’t either.

Pelosi’s Planned “Gun Control”

Just as regular as clockwork, here it comes again: Pelosi: Gun control ‘will be a priority’ in next House.

JWR’s Comment: We’ve had 14 years to stock up since the 1994-2004 ban expired. In the most recent two years of that, we have seen remarkably low prices on battle rifles and magazines. I trust that you didn’t miss the opportunity. But if you are now feeling under-armed, then I MOST STRONGLY recommend that you stock up, while prices are still low. Look for low cost AR parts suppliers like Palmetto State Armory. (One of our affiliate advertisers.) Stack your full capacity magazines deep, as well. Shortages and much higher prices may come in just few months or even weeks.

AR500 Sale

One of our affiliate advertisers is having a sale on surplus AR500 plates. is running a 30% off sale that will run through Black Friday. Even though the sale for the general public is still closer to two weeks away, they’ve released a pre-sale to their affiliates. Thirty percent is the largest discount they’ve ever offered and the savings are stacked on top of the already discounted price. If you’re in the market for some AR500 targets, there is some serious money to be saved here.

Magic Ballots

Arizona and Florida are apparently amazing places. If your Democrat party candidate loses, all you have to do is look under the couch and inside personal cars to be able to find the additional ballots that you need to win. In Arizona, the radical/progressive Kyrsten Sinema suddenly took a narrow 9,600-vote lead over the GOP opponent Martha McSally. Florida is also a magical place. Videos of ballots arriving late in personal cars attended by a single person and a continuous stream of Democrat party leaning ballots have emerged well past the deadline that Florida state law places on the counting of these ballots.

Broward County must be one of the most corrupt places in America because the supervisor of the election has already been convicted multiple times of election violations. Unsurprisingly, the stream of ballots dried up after several lawsuits and national attention was focused on it, but the damage may already be done. Enough votes appeared to trigger an automatic recount (which for some unknown reason almost always favors the liberal/progressive candidate.) Thanks to DSV for the link.


Reader P. sent in this interesting video with the former CIA Chief of Disguise who explains how the CIA used disguises. There are some actual examples of the same woman disguised in multiple ways and you have to look really hard to tell that it is the same person. The video is only about ten minutes long and is well worth the watch. While it doesn’t show the exact details, it gives some great ideas.

Grizzly Bears

Reader G.P. sent in this short video that fully explains why you don’t take chances with bears. The subject of the video attempts to scare off a mother bear with cubs by firing a shotgun. The bear understands that she has now been threatened and charges the man who is in the open, exposed. When the bear is about 10 yards away, he fires a round into her (probably striking her in the side) which rolls the bear and gives him time to escape into the house, but the bear gets back up and continues the charge. It’s a terrifying sight.

Intersectional Politics

A Dutchman had brought light to intersectional politics in a way few have before. The 69 year old man has filed a lawsuit to lower his age by 20 years. His doctor has informed him that he has the body and mind of a 50 year old so he is filing suit to have that extra 20 years of his life removed to boost his dating prospects. If you can arbitrarily declare yourself a different gender or race, why can’t you declare yourself a different age. All of the arguments used against him by the courts are practically the same arguments that have been used in the opposite way for gender/race declarations.

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!


    1. WW with a good idea! … Maybe, allege in the lawsuit, you have multiple personalities, and everyone should receive a Social Security check. … [With enough lawsuits, liberalism might collapse. … It seems people with multiple personalities are able to cast multiple ballots in Broward County, Florida.] … … Supposedly, people with multiple personalities are capable of keeping the personalities completely separated. = [They don’t share with each other and remain separated strangers. = A need for multiple checks!]

      1. While those may sound silly to us so did most of these gay marriage, transgender, bake my cake or else lawsuits a few years ago. It seems nothing is too extreme to be mainstream any more.

        1. What is disheartening is that marriage was always defined in the Christian/Jewish scripture. It has always been between a man and a woman. What the gays have done is bit worse than just weaponize the courts to make christians submit to their God called abomination–they’ve actually used SCOTUS to write that abomination in God’s eyes into the definition of Christian marriage and then call Christian/Jews haters for not going against their faith to accept it.

          It is a sad day in America.

    2. Trump was a democrat before flipping to Red, so count on him to soften and agree to some “Common sense” gun control before his term is up. AND it will be after a deep state terror attack by some militia member to justify the ban. I voted for Trump but don’t trust him.

  1. House Socialists cannot pass gun laws/bans by themselves. The Republicans controlling the Senate aren’t likely to go along with the House on their socialist agenda. So, two more years to stock up on freedom supplies.

    1. Be sure to note the exact price you pay for each item. When the SHTF and the next AWB or Magban comes along you wouldn’t want to be accused of gouging by those to lazy or stupid to plan ahead and buy now. You know they’ll expect you to sell to them at the price you paid originally or else be accused of being a heartless gouger and profiteer.
      (end sarcasm)

  2. One would think we have 2 years on freedom supplies with partial congressional control, but the reality is, you never know. Any one of the House members could flip, be bought, or pressured into some nefarious gun legislation.

    Buy what you can now, stack it deep…

  3. Why does YouTube have so much control over content that is shared? Are they the only game in town? I don’t understand why someone hasn’t figured out to create a website that is for the more conservative crowd that is not going to buckle under pressure from the liberals? What would it take to start something that will work for the people who are being shut out of YouTube? I’d bet if there was a fundraiser or a group of people working together to cooperate together to start such an endeavor, it would be viable for gun advocates.

  4. A time ago, before I got smart and imported a woman into America from a foreign country to be wife and mother of my four children, I was trying to court yet another American woman (seems like I courted two a year for twenty years).

    As you men know, as it goes with American women who are taught in the public school system to harass manhood and not comply with the Godly millennial old adage that ‘a woman is created to be parked in a family as her husband’s helpmate (co-partner), mother, and eventually grandmother of our human society.’

    No go!

    American women seem to play the Kardashian game whereby they can show up to a courting session, paid for by her man of the month club, with fifteen girlfriends, then write about the outing experience on social media with your picture associated with all the tags, then write complaints about you online as a God fearing man that wants nothing more than to be in a loving family having birthday parties with children, then phoning the police on you when you ‘stalk’ her with a text for another courting session, file harassment charges on you, and then yet use the full bandwidth of attorneys and women only laws written by female legislatures to ensnare manhood (domestic violence, stalking, retraining orders, complaints, marriage rape, rape, statutory rape, no fault divorce, child custody, the women’s right to choose, et al. There, that about covers it for laws that don’t really apply to womanhood but go right after manhood to exterminate it).

    I finally got smart when I knew the police were going to show up after dates in the parking lot of the restaurant I was courting an American girl for marriage. I would always wear a sports shirt under my business shirt and tie and strip it off in a clandestine area. I would change shoes from leather to tennis. I would put in false teeth and I had a ball cap with a blonde long hair wig bobby pinned inside (I have short dark hair). Then I would park across the parking lot and never make reference to my vehicle type or tags or even state plate it was regestered. This worked on a number of occasions and one time I drove right past the police when they were staring down my vehicle looking for me. It works!

    I’m sorry to bring this up, but this is a form of OPSEC and I also say this for the MEN out there who so desire to be in a family but are brutally ‘B’ slapped by this upcoming generation of womanhood. Also for your mothers out there with young sons that are thinking you’re going to be a grandmother soon. You might need to fight for your son’s ability to procreate and live in an American family. His selection pool for your future daughter-in-law has been tainted quit a bit with Leftist doctrine infiltrating the public schools telling women it is ‘indebted servitude’ to be under a man’s law in his home, and that the American housewife lives in a “comfortable concentration camp” – Betty Friedan. Young girls actually believe this ‘crap’ and it’s up to the older generation of Godly women to reprogram their young minds. It is not true what the Left teaches.

    I am now experimenting with latex compounds and mixing it up a bit to distort my face with good quality makeup artistry and some prosthetics for chin, cheeks, and nose I developed in my kitchen. You never know when you need to foil a facial recognition camera–and soon!

    I am married now and thanks to Communist countries that do not allow women’s rights into their borders. So, I do not recommend altering facial features on a date, but just use clothing disguises.

    God speed!

  5. Only the Democrats miraculously find uncounted ballots in the trunk of a car or a school storeroom after they’ve lost an election. A friend said it was because the voters from the cemetery don’t get to the polling places on time plus we all know the dead vote democrat!
