Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #108

Fellow Patriots,

Greetings and welcome to the PENL Edition #108. Thanks for stopping by to spend some of your time with us at HFS.

As we move through May, things at HFS remains busy. Ms. Lucy has been busy editing the new book and trying to figure out what language I write. I tell her it's 1960s West Virginian through and through. That won't work because she passed through the same school system with me. Now that the book is finished, HFS focuses on weekly products such as Zoom and the weekly newsletter along with preparations for Heritage Life Skills coming up later this month. This is a great time of year as spring is in full swing. The fruit trees are currently loaded with peaches and pears while the heavy rains pass through East TN. No matter what is on your plate, I hope you can take time to look around and appreciate all the blessings before us. The world is troubled indeed. We must be part of the solution and not part of the problem.

Hope for Survival - The Mindset is book two in the HFS series and it will be released on/around May 15, 2021. You can pre-order the book through this website now. I will also have the book available during Heritage Life Skills in Waynesville, NC, May 20-23, 2021. I would like to thank Ms. Lucy for her time and effort to help me move this project along. I also want to thank Festus, Ms. G and Sir B, Ms. J and Mr. B, and Patriot T.M. for her art work on the cover. Your time and effort means more than words can express.

Thursday Zoom Rallies – We had Zoom Rally #53 Thursday night discussing preparedness related topics like gardening, building preparedness groups and leadership to name a few. I am really proud of this group for sticking with it weekly. This week we discussed tyranny, food tracing systems, the monthly threat matrix and a key weapon of an adversary. A favorite feature of mine is the "chatter that matters" segment of the evening where all attendees can discuss any and all preparedness topics on their mind.

Heritage Life Skills will be held May 21-23, 2021 and registration started March 1, 2021. More information about Carolina Readiness Supply and Heritage Life Skills 2021 is provided in the following link to HFS YouTube page.

We must make this brief public announcement to protect the innocent.

Ding, Ding, Ding....Attention HFS readers..... Opinions shared in this newsletter are just that, opinions, and nothing more. Read at your own risk. The owner and author of this site is not responsible for hurt feelings or thin-skinned readers. I do my best to show restraint and respect to the best extent possible. I take as many precautions as possible and try to remain as nonpolitical as possible, however, there are times when I just can't help but point certain things out. Occasionally I use words only Patriots recognize and understand. It's not personal against any non-Patriot. It's just the truth. Sometimes we must pull up our spenders and suck it up. Just saying. Stay the course, read what you want, and avoid the rest. Avoid fear porn as much as possible and the day will be okay. When all else fails… Keep the faith and always have Hope.

Let’s move along and get to some thoughts...

Thoughts for the week

Isn't it fair to say we are honorable and decent citizens of our great nation? Patriots, tax paying law abiding citizens, right? Aren't we great community servants to those around us? Many help their neighbors and community programs to feed those in need or repair homes in the spring for our senior citizens. This would be us, right? We strive to better the life of others the best we can do. It makes our community better and we feel uplifted by helping others.

If the nation continues on her current path and we start to see shortages such as fuel, food, lumber and other key resources needed, how will these same community citizens respond? Will everyone stand on the court house steps and sing "We are Family" and hold hands in joy? It is highly unlikely. Let me explain.

Always keep this fact in the back of your mind. It is not a scare tactic or written to scare you. It is a reality. One of the greatest tools or weapons to use against people is starvation. It has been used throughout history and will be used again if needed. As Sun Tzu said, "one of the best ways to get submission from your adversary is to circle them and cut off all means of obtaining resources." Food. You can have all the guns, ammo, and other resources in the world. But, if you do not have sufficient amounts of food, you will not survive. You can't eat air. </
