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 “HJL ”. Big brother is watching you through your friendly spy. Guess who?
The Outdoors Are Not Safe
Penn State University administration has ruled that the outdoors are just too dangerous for their student body . Three clubs, the Outing Club (A wilderness camping club), the Nittany Grotto Caving Club and the Nittany Divers SCUBA Club have been determined to have too high a risk to allow students to participate in any planned outings. The administration did not meet with the clubs, making the decision without any input from the clubs themselves. Apparently, the part that bothered the administration is that the clubs routinely took students to areas where there was no cell phone coverage and they were unable to communicate with others. Hmmm, I think that’s kind of the point of wilderness camping. Thanks to A.N. for the link.
Holocaust? What’s That?
The Washington post ran an article showing that two thirds of American millennials surveyed in a recent poll cannot identify what Auschwitz is . Twenty-two percent of those surveyed said they had never of the Holocaust (or weren’t sure they’d heard of it). Of course eleven percent of American adults say the same thing. With nearly 1.3 million people having been deported to Auschwitz for extermination during World War II, it makes you wonder what kind of history is being taught in our public schools. I guess the cry “Never Again” is becoming “never mind”. Without teaching about these horrendous acts of man, we are doomed to repeat them. Thanks to G.P. for the link.
Preparing for Civil War: South Africa
Lauren Southern’s series on South Africa is fascinating. Her March 8th episode  talks about the white farmers who are preparing for civil war that is almost certainly to break out as the government continues its march towards racism. Of particular note in this episode is the food growing and preparation equipment that is being set up for mobile use. A hydroponic system that can be loaded into a trailer/truck in short order and food drying racks make up some of the interesting equipment that farmers are moving too. They are planning for the inevitable refugee status that will claim them when the government sanctions the stealing of their homes. Thanks to S.M. for the link.
Your Friendly Spy
It’s well known that the FBI and DHS has paid informants or actual undercover agents in virtually every significant mosque in the country, but did you know that they are actively working towards the same end in Christian churches ? If not overtly through their tattletale program (See something – Say something), they are subversively working to pervert the traditional sanctity of your relationship with your pastor and deacons to turn them into informants. How well do you know that person that you are confiding in? Do you trust them with your life? You need to remember that all alphabet agencies work along the same principle. They get a person in a compromising situation, then they tease them with leniency if that person will inform on others.
That is something to think about when you are having your next discussion with your church members whom you believe are similar to you. Also realize that most churches have already sold out to the state through the 501c3 trap. Never let anyone convince you to act in anyway contrary to what you know to be right. Play your cards close to your vest. Thanks to L.G. for the link.
Are you wondering why North Korea has suddenly started playing nice? It might be because they really don’t have any other choice . According to this article sent in by reader D.S., North Korea’s nuclear test site has collapsed. We’ve been hearing rumors about the weakened state of this test site for several years now. This sort of failure is not uncommon in nuclear test sites and is often the reason they were retired in the U.S. and U.S.S.R when those nations were doing active nuclear testing. With the ability to test his nukes, Kim Jong Un can’t rattle his saber very effectively. How better to disguise this fact than to pretend you voluntarily stopped the testing so you could negotiate peace. I think we’ve been here before with him. This will last right up till he has another test site ready.
Hats and Cakes
A judge has ruled that a New York bar does not have to serve a customer and can discriminate against him just because he was wearing a MAGA hat  when he ordered the drink. I’m all for allowing business owners to choose whom they will serve and whom they will not, but it chaps my hide to know that you can be ejected over wearing a hat supporting Trump, but you must bake a cake, or host a wedding ceremony for a couple that wants you to participate in an ceremony that violates your convictions. Grrrr. Thanks to F.M. for the link.
Kyle Kashuv, the pro-Second Amendment Parkland student was illegally detained  by school security. Apparently, Kyle had the opportunity to attend a shooting range for the first time with his father and a shooting instructor. He posted pictures on social media of the event which earned him a trip to the school security office for a grilling by three security officers (including a deputy from the same sheriff’s department whose deputies cowered outside while students were being killed). Kyle has given more details of this absurd abuse of authority in this article. Thanks to D.S. for the link.

Please send your news tips to HJL. (Either via e-mail of via our Contact  form.) These are often especially relevant, because they come from folks who watch news that is important to them. Due to their diligence and focus, we benefit from fresh “on target” news. We often “get the scoop” on news that is most likely ignored (or reported late) by mainstream American news outlets. Thanks!
