Patriot Express News Letter Edition #24

Fellow Patriots,

Good morning!!! Ms. Lucy and I hope this week's Patriot Express News Letter finds you blessed and going strong in to Autumn. We are still enduring warm days here in North Alabama but our nights and early mornings are cooler. If it would just stay like this.

Just another reminder, anyone planning on attending Heritage Life Skills IX 2020. The original date has been moved one week back to May 8 - 10, 2020. What a great gift for all Mother's. Spend the weekend with a fun group of like-minded individuals. Hope you can make it.

With that said... Let's get moving....

Alert: Threat Advisory - US of A

Who: Incels, a portmanteau of "involuntary celibates", are members of an online subculture who have increasingly become more extremist and focused on violence in recent years.

What: The Joker movie.

When: Opening Oct 4, 3029 nationwide

Where: Theaters Nationwide

Why: Feds issue warning for potential threats at theaters showing the Joker movie.

Summary: This is a heads up to you and your families. I have been waiting on the media to release this topic in order to post this to you. Think outside the box and avoid the movie and locations showing the movie. The article suggest having a plan to ensure you have two escape routes out of the theater in the event something occurs while you are watching the movie in a theater. Why even be at a location where a threat advisory has been issued? Folks, it's simple. Don't put yourself in areas of potential threats. It's not living in fear, it's being smart.

Thoughts for the Week -

Thank you for your continued support and time to read, email, text, and visit our website. When authors Frank Horton and Boyd Craven encouraged me to establish a website to support my goals and release of my first book, I had no clue what I was doing. I would admit it was a huge learning curve going from zero to up and running in three days, it was a crap shoot putting it mildly. Hours of reading and watching YouTube videos helped a great deal. I'm still learning each day and time often prohibits a lot of growth in this area. But, I am happy to tell you after five months of the website up and running, we have posted over 175 articles, included five guest writers, and had over 3,000 website hits. Now, many well-known sites and names receive over 100,000 per article and that is awesome. But, they do it full time and have a staff to do many of the upgrades, changes, building, and research. Maybe in the future? I don't know. But, for now, I'm extremely happy to think that each of you visited the site enough to tally over 3,000 visits. I can't thank you enough for your support.

Initially and ongoing my goal has been to try and provide information that will help others. Stories of others, guidance on how to do things, visits with people just like us who are doing and thinking the same things. One of the difficult things is selecting topics to appeal to readers. Balancing the topics to provide information to a wide variety of readers; young and older, ladies and men, full time preparers and folks just starting, hobbyist and folks who are trying to work projects, non-political information, future topics that could change our way of life in time, .... Then sorting through information, finding time to research the topic and then if time permits, talk to others who may offer additional information on the topic to provide a quality article. Reading and learning has been a part of my personal preparedness efforts and passing it on to you is important. Then we have the numerous emails sent in with suggested articles and information. I read and consider them all. They are great. If your submission isn't posted don't think it's because it wasn't considered or worthwhile. Sometimes I use them, part of them, or bank them for a future article. Please understand, I'm not complaining, this is simply how it works.

To sum it up, I am thankful to Ms. Lucy for her support and Festus for giving me another set of eyes to stay up to speed. I thank each of you for your friendship and being a part of this effort. Five months ago I would have told you this was impossible. When I write to you that I am blessed, please know, I am blessed. Thanks to everyone. But, our work isn't finished and we must continue trying to reach out and help others while continuing work on our own preparedness plans. Let's have fun doing it.


I am getting excited for Heritage Life Skills 2020. Are you? Hopefully we can cross paths if you attend. Festus and I continue piecing the two new classes together in the hope it will provide quality training for those who choose to attend the classes. If you attend the Preparedness 102 and 103 portion of the training, you will get to participate in community building and responding to scenarios presented to your community. If you do plan to attend these classes I would encourage you to get started now by reading one or all of the following books; JW Rawles - The Patriots, Glenn Tate - 299 Days series, William Forschen - One Second After series or Steve Bird - The New Home front series. These books will give you a head start to understand what we are attempting to do provide a better understanding on establishing a community (team) and making it function in a collapsed society.

Ms. Lucy and I had the opportunity to volunteer to support an International Organization titled JH Outback American here in Huntsville, AL this evening by serving dinner to the guest and staff workers running the event. Outback American is now International in Israel, India, Thailand, Poland and Kenya sharing a global message of faith, family unity, relationship building and bonding, and self purpose. Ms. Lucy and I participated as attendees back in 2013 and was completely impressed. If you want a great opportunity to bond with your spouse, child or grandchild this is a great place to do it.

Can you believe Christmas is quickly approaching? Less than three months away. We are getting ready to go back to print for another round of Hope For Survival books. We have had a few folks buying multiple copies to use as gifts. If you have considered or given thought to purchasing the book or multiple copies as a gift, please get your order to us ahead of time if possible. If you order the book I would be honored to sign each copy to a specific person if you provide the name. For those not aware, all proceeds from book sales go to two charities; a food bank in East TN and the Kenyan Well Program. Your support is much appreciated.

Ms. Lucy and I had the opportunity to travel back to our home state of W.V. last weekend for a very brief visit with family. I had the opportunity to meet an American Patriot who pulled in to visit my sister and brother-in-law. He drove in to their country driveway aboard a beautiful Harley Davidson with the American flag flying off the back and dawning his Vietnam Veteran leather vest. The man approached me with his hand out saying "they call me Doc, nice to meet you", as he gripped my hand firmly. He upheld the motto "Once a Marine, always a Marine". I knew of Doc from conversations with my family. Doc had lost his wife earlier in the year after a long battle with cancer. As he pulled in the driveway I heard my sister comment "it's good to see him out and about". Doc runs an annual charity in a town of 5,500 and county of 60,000, that is sort of like the Toys for Tots program led by the Marine Corp. It is one of the poor regions of WV where most history is about former coal miners. In several communities it looks like time stopped and the world moved on. Well, Doc works year round putting this annual Christmas event for children together. On the evening of the big event, Doc provides dinner and Christmas for over 1,000 area less fortunate children who would not have a Christmas without his efforts. In addition to dinner and a Santa, the children will get bags of groceries to have a meal on Christmas, new clothing (pants, shirts, shoes, coats, hats and gloves) and a toy based on age. Doc asks for no accolades or pats on his back. He spends all year reaching out to others to contribute and donate in order to give to others in need. It was my honor to finally meet this man they call "Doc".

Okay, let's
