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 the Montana Legislature’s Vote To Ban TikTok. (See the Montana section.)

Idaho

Reader Dave B.  sent us the link to this biased left-wing Dutch television news report from 2022: AMERICAN REDOUBT: Ultra Conservatives Taking Over Idaho.  Take note that Nieuwsuur is co-produced by two state-run broadcasters in Holland — their equivalents of PBS or NPR. They of course reflexively dredged up the 30+ year-old history of a handful of Idaho neo-nazis, in an attempt to discredit the American Redoubt movement.  And hearing Sandpoint’s hard-left Democrat mayor of Sandpoint refer to us as “The American Taliban” made me laugh out loud.  That was ironic, coming from someone who tried to severely lock down his city during the recent pandemic.

Montana Legislature Votes To Ban TikTokJWR’s Comment:  While their intentions are good, I suspect that if it is enacted, this bill could be struck down by the courts as an unconstitutional Bill of Attainder. The question is: Would a foreign-owned company have the same Bill of Attainder protection?
