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 “JWR”. Our goal is to educate our readers, to help them to recognize emerging threats and to be better prepared for both disasters and negative societal trends. You can’t mitigate a risk if you haven’t first identified a risk. Today, we focus on concealed carry.

The Second Civil War Is Coming Into Focus

I often recommend getting the LBRY app. It is a viable un-censored alternative to YouTube. Once you have the app installed, I recommend this video by Tim Pool, one of the left-wingers that I consider quite credible: The Second Civil War Is Coming Into Focus, Reza Aslan Blames ALL Trump Supporters.

5G Technology Versus Weather Forecasting

High-stakes dispute turns nasty, pits 5G technology against weather forecasting. A quote:

“The National Academy of Sciences planned a two-day summer workshop to address a high-stakes question: Could the development of next generation 5G wireless undermine the accuracy of information gathered by weather satellites?

On July 16, less than a week before the scheduled start, the event was canceled because many of the “most knowledgeable about the topic” were reluctant to participate, according to a statement released by the National Academy of Sciences.

The science workshop was a casualty of a nasty dispute within the federal government that has pitted Federal Communications Commission (FCC) officials who say the 5G technology can be safely developed against NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration officials who say tighter restrictions are needed to prevent a serious threat to data collection by polar-orbiting satellites.”

Spike in Concealed Carry Classes Interest

Inquiries Into License To Carry Classes Up After Mass Shootings.  Here is a quote:

“The number of mass shootings in the last week has prompted many to purchase guns and sign up for classes to earn their license to carry concealed weapons, according to the people who are doing training.

Inside the Laguna Shooting Center, experts offer everything from concealed carry classes to active shooter training. Protocols and practices outlined in the training manuals have changed as the types of mass shooting scenarios change.

Time and time again, we see violent images of horrific shootings. This weekend they came from in El Paso and then Dayton.

“The officers took out the guy as soon as they got there,” said Terry Wingert, an instructor with the Advanced Security Institute.

Wingert, a former police officer, has taught concealed carry classes for 40 years all across California. He teaches up to 300 classes a year, and when a mass shooting happens, inquiries go up 10-15%.”

Russia Admits Nuclear Reactor Blew Up During Missile Test

My old friend Terry in Idaho wrote to mention: Russia admits nuclear reactor blew up during missile test 250 miles from Moscow. A snippet:

“Russia confirmed that last week’s explosion involved a nuclear reactor during a failed missile test at a site just 250 miles from Moscow.

Five nuclear scientists were killed during the Aug. 8 explosion, which occurred during the launch of a missile that involved a small nuclear reactor, according to a report by Bloomberg on Monday.

Russia’s state-run nuclear agency Rosatom had confirmed Saturday that the explosion killed several of its employees in a test of an ‘isotope power source in a liquid propulsion system.'”

  1. Every time someone says “Second Civil War” I think of the couple at the range with his & her ARs trying to figure out who was shooting at which target. At 25 meters. From the bench. Unless it can be fought from the couch, there will be no Civil War 2. America is too stupid and fat.

    1. Maag, I agree that civil war is highly unlikely. Forget impotent, highly dependent, city Commies having no ‘life skills’. Their demographics can change drastically in mere months. As Jefferson would say, America’s cities have become Europe. Just avoid living near them.

      Focus on what we DO KNOW. Globalists have cleverly steered America to a ‘global economic reset’, their words not mine. We KNOW chaos is likely. I’d recommend Plan A: Concentrate on building self-sufficiency and having a tribe.

      Chaos is likely to lead to a void authority. Someone(s) will try to fill that vacuum will. No one knows how post-chaos will play out. Focus on Plan A and what we DO KNOW.

  2. Couldn’t bring up the 2nd civil war video and as far as being a Trump voter. Because I was tired of all the business as usual in politics since I started voting way back when. And I sure didn’t see any promise in any of the other candidates and I sure as heck don’t see anything to get me excited from the other side.

  3. Some form, beit low level, and mostly urban conflict likely in the beginning, but it will not go ‘hot’ in earnest, until the beer, snacks, and the comfy life is gone. Of course the useful idiots are being spun up, mainly to generate political support. The real future army, and serious threat is in Antifia. They are funded by deep Globalist pockets, Soros’s son is likely the source. They are using the classic Commie play book. Why? Because, it is proven and understood. Antifia dominates in Europe, and is being used here in a similar capacity. We are number of years behind Europe, yet headed down the same road to the slaughter house. This country is however, vastly different in composition and spirit to that of Europe. Europe knows the words, yet does not truly understand the ideas of freedom that is at the heart of Our Constitution and ‘will to fight.’ This still exists, yet mostly in rural America. The powers that be, the perpetrators, with all their advantage, however, do not understand what is the American Spirit. The will to live as free men is foreign to them. All that said, it might be wise to consider Samuel Adam’s insights:

    “A general dissolution of the principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy…. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader…. If virtue and knowledge are diffused among the people, they will never be enslaved. This will be their great security.”

    Is “…virtue and knowledge are diffused among the people”? No. Can we say that where virtue remains, liberty can exist? Or, is it, where there is not virtue, liberty will not exist? Both are true.

  4. War, revolutionary or civil, maybe. I think that it is likely that the Islamists have been sending jihadis here for a decade or two. We could have tens of thousands of them. I suspect China and Russia have been doing the same thing; sending in sleepers/spies and again there could be tens of thousands of them here. The violence, when it comes, may be different than we think.
