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”. Today, let’s put the South African murders in perspective.
A is for Antifa
Going right along with JWR’s definitions outlined in Terms of Temerity: Why The Left Loathes The Words We Use is this new series on The Leftese Dictionary by Andrew Klaven of The Daily Wire. Only the first letter of the alphabet is posted on YouTube right now, but they promise to post one new letter every two weeks over the next year or so till they have all the alphabet. I can’t imagine that this will stay up long with all the progressive/left snowflakes that seem to roam the halls of YouTube these days, so view it while you can and enjoy.
More on Tommy Robinson
Alex Barron (The Bard of the American Redoubt) has posted some pointed video commentary on Tommy Robinson’s incarceration and the larger issue of radical Islam. For those that are still unfamiliar, Tommy Robinson was protesting at a trial of an Islamic street gang that was on trial for sex trafficking. The protest was over how easy the government is going on these criminals with full knowledge of their deeds over the fear of being called racist. Tommy was arrested, tried, convicted, and sentenced to 13 months of hard time in the same prison with Islamic bullies who have sworn to kill him. It is effectively a kangaroo court with a death sentence.
South African Murders in Perspective
As the racist violence continues to escalate in South Africa the lame-street media continues to ignore the problem. The west has basically declared it a non-issue with accusations questioning the seriousness of the underlying problem. Reader BinB sent in this article that does a little math to compare the murder rate and comes up with some astounding numbers. If the same violent problem existed in America, the number would be 100,000 last year alone. This is a significant murder rate and a true survival nightmare. Shame on the media for burying it.
When Roseanne returned to the airwaves as a Pro-Trump TV character, the average American conservative cheered. We warned then that you shouldn’t hitch your ride to “crazy” and Roseanne certainly fits that bill. Now Roseanne has done what she is known for and issued a crazy, racist and inappropriate statement about Valerie Jarrett and she’s lost her #1 rated comedy show. Those who supported her have gone down in flames with her. When will we ever learn. Apparently, Trump invited Kim Kardashian this week to the White House to discuss prison reform. Really? How about we keep entertainment separate from politics. Thanks to S.M. for the information.
Summer in Chicago
Here in America, we also have areas with ridiculously high murder rates, but they tend to be more urban. For instance, in the first hot weekend of Chicago, the “crazy” came out in the population and there was a wave of looting, mugging, and violence along with innocent people being attacked. This article, sent in my reader D.S., profiles just a small portion of the crimes committed by the urban youth that are intent on destroying their own city. It would appear that the cops have resorted to just escorting the offenders out of the downtown area and have requested help from the fire department in patrolling the streets. The only incorrigible miscreants missing from the free-for-all were the lame-street media.
Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico
Reader G.P. sent in this article showing that the official death toll of Hurricane Maria when it hit Puerto Rico is a far cry from correct. The official number stands at 64, but when you consider the death directly attributable to the failed infrastructure and destruction caused by the hurricane, the number rapidly rises to over 4,600 people. Thats off by a factor of more than 70. Part of the problem lies in the response of the federal government, but the majority of the problem lies squarely on the the local governments that continue to fumble.

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!
