Here is SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt. This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region. We also mention companies of interest to preppers that are located in the region. The emphasis this week is on anti-Redoubt journalists. (See the Region-Wide section, near the end of this column.)
Region-Wide (Anti-Redoubt Journalists):
A new article series just got started at the leftward leaning Sandpoint Reader: The American Redoubt Series: An Introduction. JWR’s Comments: They’ve promised to be objective. I’ll just wait and see how the series is handled. But it is probably not coincidental that they already juxtaposed a photo and text link to an article on the Ruby Ridge standoff. There is nothing like a little Guilt By Lack of Association. This is straight out of the SPLC playbook.

And for even more strident bias, there is this, over at Buzzfeed: Welcome To Idaho: Now Go Home–Wackadoodles, Establishment Hacks, And The Big, Ugly, Local Battle For The Heart Of The GOP. JWR’s Comments: The author, Anne Helen Peterson, couldn’t even wait to get past the headline and the first subhead to make an insult and a mis-characterization. Her article is a none-too subtle smear, attempting to make conservatives and Redoubters look like racists. But her claims seem laughable, when you see that the article includes a photo of Alex Barron. He is one of the key pro-Redoubt leaders of the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee, and he is black. The American Redoubt movement is essentially color blind, just as every interest group in America should be. For the record: I have much more in common with black Christians than I do with white Atheists or white New Age crystal fondlers.)

Readers in eastern Washington or North Idaho who want a custom-built AR rifle or pistol should check out Haynes and Sons Guns. Their prices are very reasonable but yet they use all top quality components. They can build an AR to your detailed specifications. Presently, you can take full advantage of the recent decline in AR parts prices. Whether you do it yourself or “have it done”, I have a recommendation: Gather parts for your eventual AR builds now, while prices are low! And as for buying complete black rifles? Something tells me that in just a few years we’ll look back on the current “Buyer’s Market” and say: “I should have bought a ton of them and stacked them like cordwood.” If you have the vault space, then that would be a wise thing to do.

At the western edge of the Redoubt: North Cascades Highway closes for season due to snow. (This is a particularly early closure, this year.)

I recently attended the Spokane Gun Show. While there, I met Matthew of Dermody of Hidden Success Tactical. He has many years of experience in making custom ghillie capes and weapons covers. His books on the subject are excellent. To placer a special order, call: (509) 768-0162, or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
