Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom



Movies & Television:

Leave No Trace. Available on DVD and also free streaming on Amazon Prime.  One reviewer described it: “This movie is a lovely portrait of a father/daughter relationship, the perils of PTSD that many of our veterans face, and the beauty of a small community that takes care of others. Honestly one of the best films I’ve seen in years.

o  o  o

Pride and Prejudice. To clarify, since there have been so many productions: This is the 1995 BBC television production starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. Available on DVD and also free streaming on Amazon Prime.

o  o  o

The second season of the parallel universe television series Counterpart began airing last month on Starz, and will wrap up on February 17, 2019. Warning: Graphic violence and some nudity.

Gear (Ammo Cans):

I noticed that a SurvivalBlog reader in the American Redoubt has some inexpensive surplus ammo cans for sale, listed in The SurvivalBlog Classifieds.

o  o  o

I’ve mentioned these once before: Case Club 24 Magazine Holder .50 Cal Ammo Can Foam (Pre-Cut, Closed Cell, Military Grade Foam). I now use several of them to cure what had formerly been an organizational problem.

o  o  o

And here is something new, along the same lines: Case Club Waterproof 4 Pistol Case with Silica Gel to Help Prevent Gun Rust

o  o  o

GunMagWarehouse (one of our affiliate advertisers) is currently running a sale on their entire inventory of Smith & Wesson magazines. I recommend stocking up, before Congress passes another magazine ban. Just type “S&W-SALE” into their search box.

  1. In reference to attack of SPLC on you. I’ve read all your books, frequently read your blog, happened to read the “civil war” article, and the SPLC article. Toured their website. I am a “conservative” Libertarian, essentially a Christian with no specific religious affiliation, but wife and I have strong faith and practice. I am disgusted at SPLC’s attack and article. How appropriate for you to have a sobering article on the “Inclusiveness element” to follow. I am ret. LEO here in Calif. bay area, with a stewardship for a large family. With that out there, I must say I’ve ALWAYS found your books and articles “inclusive” of anyone that follows the “Golden Rule”, and showing that some things still matter and are worth holding on to. As a “prepper” since 1972 I’ve seen many fringe elements drawn, superficially, to the survivalist aspect rather than the self-reliance lifestyle.
