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” — this week with JWR filling in.

This is a fascinating video: Man Who Buried 42 School Buses To Make Huge Doomsday Shelter Is Finally Showing People The Inside.
The Big Hack: How China Used a Tiny Chip to Infiltrate U.S. Companies
In a widely circulated Bloomberg article: “The attack by Chinese spies reached almost 30 U.S. companies, including Amazon and Apple, by compromising America’s technology supply chain, according to extensive interviews with government and corporate sources.”
Stay Away From Crowded Places
SurvivalBlog reader “Awakened in Virginia” penned this insightful commentary on current events:
In watching the Kavanaugh circus, and the clown show that is the US Congress, I’m surprised at the level of hatred and venom from the left. This has made me realize the depth of danger decent people face in these days. Of course, the root issue with Kavanaugh is the possibility that Roe v. Wade will be overturned or limited, perhaps correcting a decades old legislation-from-the-bench debacle, but also eliminating a perceived “right” of liberals. If Mr. K. is confirmed, you know many states and localities will immediately pass laws and regulations to generate test cases for the Supreme Court. It won’t be two years before the first challenge reaches the court. If Roe is overturned, the petulent crybabies on the left will take to the streets in violence, I’m sure you will agree.
That’s an easy prediction. But wait! There’s more!
You see, Stalin killed millions of his own citizens, but he didn’t know many personally. Same with Mao, Hitler, Castro, and all the socialists of the 20th century.
However, since 1973, liberals have killed 60 million of their own children. Do you think for a minute they would hesitate to kill conservatives or libertarians?
I always envisioned the horde as a bunch of hungry people, looting and pillaging to fill their own stomachs. Now I realize we have bred possibly 100 million morality-free liberals who have been trained through Hollywood violence, video game violence, and abortion clinic violence to have zero respect for life. It is now even more important for those of us who are prepared to keep a low profile, stay out of crowds, stay away from indefensible and confined areas, and not become another tick in the casualty column.
The Zombie Apocalypse is a most dangerous thing when the zombies look just like us, work with us, shop with us, and live next door.
Thanks for all you do, and for sticking with the philosophy even in these seemingly good times.
Bad News: Initiative 1639 in Washington
After the courts through out a challenge on petitioning irregularities, the monumentally bad Initiative 1639 is back on the ballot in Washington. I encourage the citizens of Washington to please do everything you can do defeat the initiative in the upcoming election.

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!
