Patriot Express News Letter Edition #21
Good morning. It is a great morning indeed. Thank you for your continued support and time to read, email, text, and visit our website. It was great hearing from folks through emails this week.
Please continue keeping our fellow Patriot brothers and sisters in your prayers. We have several folks who are battling health issues or dealing with a spouse with major health issues. Prayers are powerful and I know these folks would appreciate them much. Thanks!!!
If you want to link up via Skype, my link is peacekeeper1961_1. A couple of folks notified me over the past week. If it is easier we can set up an evening and time to connect and chat on topics of concern or a topic of your choice.
With that said... Let's get moving....

Thoughts for the Week -
We hope you had a great holiday weekend to bring in September. The temperature here in north Alabama did not drop yet so regardless of what the calendar says, it remain summer here... no signs of autumn, It was 97 yesterday at 3 pm. Another hot one today. I'm so ready for my favorite season, autumn. Some of my fondest childhood memories are during autumn. Jeans, sweatshirts, hiking boots, and an old AM radio in my pocket to listen to WV University football. We didn't have podcast back in the day. LOL A crisp breeze in the air with golden leaves floating to the ground. Life was blessed indeed.
So, Ms. Lucy and I enjoyed a day at Dollywood with our youngest daughter, son-in-law, and three grandchildren (9, 5, and 1). Once you get past the pain of the ticket price it is a very nice amusement and entertainment park. Now the pain wasn't so bad because Ms. Lucy, daughter, and grandchildren 1 and 2 have season passes. It was sponsor a friend day or something so Ms. Lucy let me be her friend for the day to get in free. So, the reality of it was seven family members passed through the gates and at no cost. I often talk about staying outside the box and watching and assessing things from the outside view. So throughout the day as we roamed around I would assess and evaluate things. Purple hair, pounds of ear rings and body rings, lots of body paint, some languages outside of English and West Virginian, but I didn't see to many yuppie types unless it was while I was at the bird show. Something about the American Bald Eagle and Golden Eagle that tugs at my heart. Know what I mean? The thing that impressed me the most? I was able to be Gray Man all day. We say and do things to try and not be noticed or viewed. We stay alert while trying to enjoy our day. I must have been doing a good job because ....every time I would take a picture I was totally Gray Man. Here is the proof.
Do you think about being a Gray Man when you are out of your home? How about when you are in crowds? How do you blend in? When you scout out your location and make your plan, do you build your Gray Man plan in to your overall plan? Do you have a plan to back out of a situation and vanish from the scene unnoticed? Do you ever practice doing it? You should try it and have fun with it . You may be surprised to how good you become at it. Once you get the out of the box part down and add the Gray Man process to your actions, you will on your way. It's that simple.
So pick an event and take a partner and go practice. Take turns and critique each other.
As for the Gray Man picture, we have to let our hair down and smile from time to time. I promise, it doesn't hurt. Giving thanks each day for life is easy but not taken for granted. Amen to that.
Ms. Lucy has been working on a special project for the Hope For Survival effort. She worked with a graphic designer to create some new logos and covers for future books and the website most likely. It was a trying path but it appears to be blossoming good results for the future. A big thanks to Ms. Lucy for her efforts and time. I'm fortunate to be alive through this process because I know she got tired of hearing me say...."this is your project, do it as you wish, decide and make it happen." LOL I'm just glad she didn't come back with a logo of a three ringed circus with me and Festus as the ring leaders. I would have had to eat my words and smile, huh?
Did you know or realize this is National Preparedness Month? Yes indeed. It gives every man the freedom to buy everything they have on their wish list relating to Preparedness. JUST KIDDING!!! Seriously, this is a great month to dust off your plans and test them, double check your supplies vs checklist, talk to your neighbors about basic preparedness for natural disasters that may be applicable in your region, look for sales on preparedness items, double check your dates and if expiration dates scare you, determine what needs replaced, talk to your kids and grandkids about preparedness. If you don't have time or the funds to buy and build your grandkids 72 hour backpacks, take them to a sporting goods store and show them the packs and items they should put in the packs and why. Maybe consider purchasing an Emergency Radio like the Midland WR120 NOAA Emergency Weather Alert Radio. Many local box stores carry this radio for about $30. I'm sure you can obtain one from Amazon where they sale about anything you want other than a Popeye Chicken sandwich.
Ms. Lucy and I got to spend a few hours with one of our favorite TN families who celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary this past week. Congrats and a wish for many more. May God bless you and your beautiful family. I love hearing your stories of your early years and raising your family, gardening and surviving. You are a true story of American greatness.
It was great hearing from our NC Patriot sister who recently made the big move to Western NC. She has landed, the chickens survived, the kids are happy, and she is breathing fresh mountain air. Amen to that. I enjoyed an email at 4 am this morning and got a chuckle from her chicken story. She may just have her new mascot. Ha. I look forward to more emails and stories from this families new location and development as plans move forward. Keep charging my friend. The hard part is behind you and the fun part is the future.
Our Patriot brother and sister over towards the coast are on fire with their preparedness planning. Reading, podcasting, trying, learning, planning... they have it all going on. When I read emails from this couple it makes me tired. They have it going on and even when something doesn't work out as planned, they note it, learn from it and make plans to try again with lessons learned. I am really excited to see them again when Heritage Life Skills rolls around for 2020 because the knowledge they have gained since HLS 2019 is impressive. Keep it up and keep charging.
I don't want to run off in the weeds too far and I have both feet grounded on this one. I'm only mentioning it because I have crossed this topic in three locations now. One can take it for what it's worth. It will sound crazy to those who are not familiar with HAARP and Space based Microwave Directed Energy weapons and/or those who have studied weather manipulation as far back as post WWII by the Russians and Germans. You can take time going to geo-engineering sites and research further on this topic ( https://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/) . By the way, this geo engineering site has over 33 million views. Dane Wigington is one of the foremost voice on geo-engineering. If you want to learn about climate change, check out Dane. I digress. So, isn't it strange how fast Dorian spun up from a Tropical Storm to a Hurricane Cat 1 - 5, then back down to a Cat 2 area? And how the hurricane slowed to 1 mph and hovered over the Bahamas for a long period and then moved on? You can search for videos of a flash of light that took place in what may be the center of the eye as Dorian approach the Bahamas. This could be numerous things. Maybe electromagnetic pumping? Energy directed weaponry? I don't know. The reason this has landed on my radar is because I have crossed paths on three articles or comment sections about the Chinese building a deep water submarine port in the Bahamas. It doesn't pass the "duh" test but in the times we live I can't not at least check on this. Folks this would put Chinese Nuclear Submarines about 180 miles off the southern most US Coastline.
This is a follow up to a previous story in the Patriot Express News Letter on the Sept 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the twin towers and the Pentagon. The article discussed a new theory and evidence that was enough for five New York Fire Commissioners to sign off supporting a new investigation. Update: This link is to a new four year study in to the same attack revealing a new conslusion. More to follow.
