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”. Today, we further examine the possibility of Civil War 2.
Civil War 2 in America – WHO WOULD WIN? In-Depth Analysis
The latest Mark My Words video from John Mark: CIVIL WAR 2 in America – WHO WOULD WIN? In-Depth Analysis. This video is 52 minutes long, but well worth watching. A brief scan of the 2,600+ comments quickly shows the prevailing sentiment. (Thanks to Tim J. for the link.)
CRM Company Sales Force Pushes Gun Control
Locked And Loaded: Tech Company Skirts Congress To Make A Gun Control Vision A Reality. A pericope:
“SalesForce, a customer relationship management (CRM) technology company designed to help with commerce, recently updated their acceptable-use policy. The policy change essentially tells firearms manufacturers and gun store retailers that they’re no longer allowed to utilize the service to collect payments because of products and goods that they sell.
Specifically, they don’t want their product being used for transactions involving ‘high capacity’ magazines, unfinished lowers and firearms with a thumbhole or folding stock.”
Natural News Deplatformed by Facebook
The censorship war continues: Facebook removes health site Natural News. JWR’s Comment: None of the major social media services have any desire for pellucidity. They want to control the socio-poltical narrative. How? They diffuse and distort the flow of information. And now they outright censor, de-monetize, or deplatform anyone who doesn’t share their leftist-statist-globalist politics. The FCC should declare all the major social media platforms public utilities, and require them to create a level playing field with true freedom of speech. I’d much rather risk being offended than see people censored! (A hat tip to DSV for the link.)

Two State Senators Shot to Death
Second GOP State Senator Discovered Shot To Death In Two Days. Here is a quote:
“Oklahoma Republican state Sen. Jonathan Nichols was found dead Friday, making him the second GOP state senator to be shot to death in the last two days.
Police reportedly found Nichols, 53, dead by a gunshot wound in Norman, Oklahoma, Wednesday night. His death comes two days after police reportedly discovered former Arkansas Republican state Sen. Linda Collins-Smith dead from a gunshot wound and wrapped in some kind of blanket.”
The Oklahoma Medical Examiner’s Office is working with police investigators to determine Nichols’ cause of death.”

Police Can’t Just Arrest Someone for Swearing
8th Circuit: Police Can’t Just Arrest Someone for Swearing at Them. Here is an excerpt:
“The 8th US Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday upheld a US District Court decision that refused to throw out a civil lawsuit against an Arkansas police officer who arrested a man who yelled a curse word at the officer as he conducted a traffic stop on another citizen.
According to court documents, in 2015 Arkansas State Trooper Lagarian Cross was performing a traffic stop on a Fort Smith highway when he heard a passerby yell “f*ck you” out of the window of a moving car. The remark prompted Cross to end his traffic stop and pursue the car. After making the stop, Cross arrested Eric Roshaun Thurairajah on a charge of disorderly conduct, stating the profanity constituted “unreasonable or excessive noise.”
Thurairajah spent hours in jail for the utterance, court records say, before the charge was dropped and he was released under his own recognizance.”
