SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt

This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region. (Idaho, Montana, eastern Oregon, eastern Washington, and Wyoming.) Much of the region is also more commonly known as The Inland Northwest. We also mention companies of interest to preppers and survivalists that are located in the American Redoubt region. Today, we focus on some crowded rivers.   (See the Montana section.)

  1. 3-Star General McInerney Calls For Martial Law, Tribunals & Investigation of Treason with Host Brannon Howse and guests General McInerney, NSA Whistleblower Kirk Wiebe and National Intelligence Author Mary Fanning

    The Dan Bongino Show: Stunning Election Anomalies You Must Hear

    1. Thank you, CW64! I found that video last nite and have forwarded it out to those I hope/think will act on it. I also transcribed the message to DJT they suggested.
      Make it your own, but tweet or email ( DJT, in your own words.
      Thanks to all SB readers!
      Dear Mr. President,
      80+ million Americans want you to use the Insurrection Act, and suspend the December meeting of the electoral college, and the January GA Senate runoff, so that, first, military tribunals can be set up to properly investigate and resolve the 11/3/20 cyber warfare election issue.
      You are the only one who can do this! You are the ‘man of the hour’ – where the future of America as a free nation stands in the balance.
      We are behind you 100%!!!!

  2. It’s great that the family of the little girl murdered in 1974 got some closure. However, after reading several other articles about how the case was solved, I’m a little uncomfortable. Apparently, investigators were able to find the killer from only a DNA sample preserved since the murder. “The DNA extracted in that process helped build family trees, build familial samples directing investigators toward” the killer. The only other evidence they had was a description of a car, which did nothing to help track down the killer, but only to help verify that he was the one.

    That means that existing information kept in databases was all that was needed.

    Here’s the article that I took the quote from:

    The other ones I read didn’t give any details about how the killer was actually tracked down.

  3. Gee, I hope there will be some room left for me. As soon as I find a job in the Redoubt, I’m leaving California. Don’t worry; I won’t bring liberalism with me!


    No wonder so many Idahoans have moved North to get away from Boise. Sad to see the state infested by Communist tyrants. I’d avoid Moscow and Coeur d’Alene, as they are similarly infected. Our mayor in our tiny town says it’s all about “personal responsibility” and “common sense” – I gave her a hug for saying that. I’m curious to know how long people will put up with the tyrannical government oppressors. If everyone will just use their “noggin'” (wash your hands, cover your mouth if you cough or sneeze, stay away from others when you’re sick, etc.), we could go on with our lives without these waves of lockdowns. The lockdowns, btw, are designed to bankrupt the Middle Class – the largest threat to the Globalists. I think Jeff Bezos’ (Amazon) wealth has increased by 72Billion during the Pandemic.

    1. SaraSue, you’re right. The lockdowns are spreading poverty and tyranny. I’m trying to reduce my use of Amazon. Public health = poverty pimping. I’ll stay away from Moscow, but I might have to take a job in Boise to get established in the Redoubt. Stay tuned!

    2. Oh my, you have been paying attention.

      I think Jeff Bezos’ (Amazon) wealth has increased by 72Billion during the Pandemic.

      I avoid ordering stuff online. Personal and safe transactions for me. Yesterday, I brought some garden greens to a friend and her family. She in turn, gave me some fresh-baked cornbread.

      The middle class may not survive. Neighborliness will.

      Carry on

  5. The “let us work rally” in Pasco sets me off plenty good. Here are a few things I really wish people would wake up to and realize:
    You do not need to ask for permission from goobermint, they need permission from you to do anything out of the scope of the outlines of the Constitution “Article 1 Section 8” and various amendments scattered throughout, spells out all they are allowed to engage in without citizens permission. NOTHING MORE
    Until we start demanding more and more from the goobers the more we will be able to hold them to it.
    Goobermint cannot provide you with anything unless they first take it from you.
    Cut out the goobers and provide for yourselves. Socialism grows exponentially when we refrain from responsibility and acknowledging that fact.
    The exact same things were happening prior to 1776 leading up the the American Revolution that are in place and happening today. Not exact but the similarities are close enough to make it scary. And I don’t scare easy!

  6. So unfortunate the Tri Cities Bible Bookstore is closing now. It was a bastion of Christian resources and a very pleasant place to shop. Very sad to see it shutting down.
