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 look at Agricultural imports and exports.
A Frightening First: U.S. Will Import More Ag Products Than it Exports
Reader H.L. sent this: US farmer worried Biden’s policies put industry in jeopardy. The article begins with this alarming statement: “…the U.S., for the first time in history, is set to import more agriculture products than it exports.”
Fourth Turning Winter of Death
Over at The Burning Platform: Fourth Turning Winter of Death. Here is a brief excerpt:
“It was less than a year ago on December 16, 2021 when our dementia patient in chief was instructed by his handlers to lie, obfuscate and demonize critical thinking Americans who refused to become victims of the Big Pharma, Fauci promoted, untested, unsafe, ineffective gene therapy by declaring “we are looking at a winter of severe illness and death for the unvaccinated — for themselves, their families and the hospitals they’ll soon overwhelm”. Biden’s vaccine mandates were overturned in the courts. The unvaccinated did not die from Covid. Very few people died from Covid. Some really old and infirm people on death’s doorstep died with Covid. Some very unhealthy obese people died with Covid. But even 95% of the old and unhealthy survived Covid.
Virtually no one under 70 years old died from Covid. Biden was lying. Fauci was lying. Walensky was lying. Gates was lying. Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla was lying. Their paid-off medical industry was lying. Their highly compensated corporate legacy media talking heads were lying. Captured politicians were lying. The entire Covid scheme was nothing more than weaponizing the annual flu through fear propaganda, a billion-dollar advertising campaign, and enacting totalitarian measures on the world as part of the Great Reset Build Back Better New World Order plot orchestrated by our globalist oligarch overlords.”

Jailed January 6th Defendants Suffering Human Rights Violations
Linked over at the Whatfinger.com news aggregation site: Fiancé of Jan 6 defendant levels outrageous human rights violations allegedly occurring in DC jail. Here is a pericope:
“When asked why Worrell was kept behind bars for months with no treatment for his cancer while Democratic prosecutors are releasing criminals every day who’ve committed more serious crimes, Priller leveled some outrageous accusations.
‘Well, the DC gulags made a statement that these guys and women that are in the prison are political prisoners. So they’re all being treated that way,” she said. “Their food is being poisoned. Their recreation time is taken from them. They’re on solitary confinement. They’re just denied all kinds of basic human rights.’
Priller explained that there was one pair of toenail clippers being shared by 44 men and that her fiancé had to use those same clippers to trim his mustache so he could eat his food.
‘Well, anyone who lives in Washington knows it’s famously the worst jail in the United States. Lot of abuse in that jail over the decades,’ Carlson said, before asking Priller if any politicians had come to their aid.
‘They’re ignoring us,” she replied, before adding, “Our First Amendment rights are definitely under attack. We definitely need help. The more people we can get on our side, the better. We need lawyers.'”
