SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt

Read Time3 Minute, 5 Second


This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region. (Idaho, Montana, eastern Oregon, eastern Washington, and Wyoming.) Much of the region is also more commonly known as The Inland Northwest. We also mention companies of interest to preppers and survivalists that are located in the American Redoubt region. Today, we focus on Wyoming’s elk feeding program. (See the Wyoming section.)

Blog reader A.P. sent this: Book-hider at Coeur d’Alene library receives national media attention.  JWR’s Comments: When liberals hide (or trashbin toss) conservative book titles, there is hardly a peep. But when a conservative does the same, it becomes national news. Librarian bias and media bias are now in full synergy.

Notably absent in this article was any mention of the blatant liberal bias in the initial selection of books by library staff, when they order new books. One of my novels that was a New York Times Top 20 bestseller was rarely seen on library shelves. Notably, I heard that some librarians had to be hounded for weeks before they would finally order a copy.  Likewise, librarians are also notoriously ruthless and relentless in the way that they choose books to “retire” from regular circulation. Books with conservative themes typically end up in the “Friends of the Library” bins years ahead of leftist titles. So it is not just “book hiders” that deny library patrons their right to read what they choose.

BLM buys more land near Blackfoot River. A pericope:

The Bureau of Land Management closed on a $5.6 million property purchase Thursday that adds 7,268 acres to public lands just north of the Blackfoot River.

The purchase is from The Nature Conservancy and uses Land and Water Conservation Fund dollars, which is a federal program whose money comes from offshore oil and gas development. This brings the total of BLM-owned property in the drainage about 25 miles northeast of Missoula to about 27,000 acres, with the eventual goal of expanding the federal agency’s land holdings in the area to 60,000 acres.

The purchase amounts to about $775 per acre.”

JWR’s Comment:  As if the BLM needed any more land!
