Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #117

Greetings and welcome to the PENL Edition #117. I hope you enjoyed a great Independence Day weekend with family and friends. I love celebrating the 4th of July and all the reasons we have the holiday. A part of me always finds a few seconds reflecting back to Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation when Aunt Bethany burst into the National Anthem when she thought she witnessed fireworks exploding from the sewer pipe explosion.

Ms. Lucy and I had a very enjoyable week here in East TN with our three year old grandson. What a champ he is. The kid didn't cry one time. He helped me pick blueberries and pears from the bushes and trees. He even helped his Mar Mar (Ms. Lucy) wash her vehicle. He was standing up in the driver seat and she approached him for something and he said "please close the door Mar Mar, I'm on a conference call." Yes, it was that kind of week for us. Wonderful. His mother and two older sisters arrived on Saturday to collect him to travel to their home in Virginia on Monday. It is always a joy to see family. I hope you could experience the same. It is uplifting indeed.

I traveled to Waynesville, NC to visit two of my favorite Patriots at Carolina Readiness Supply and then rally up with about twenty five Patriots for lunch and a personal chat on preparedness. Sorry our Kentucky Patriot sister and brother encountered some difficulties along the trip to NC. We missed having you with us. It was great to have time to share a meal and see everyone. Thanks to those who could attend.

Thursday Zoom Rallies – HFS Thursday Zoom Rally #59 was conducted and the group focused on Transhumanism, vetting new prospects for groups, and the world without rule of law and rule of law. We discussed how these two important categories could impact you and your family in a non-protected neighborhood and a protected neighborhood. We ended the zoom rally with the weekly chatter that matters session. HFS welcomed several new Patriots to the group. Thanks for your support and attending this weekly event.

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

I would like to share this song with you to get you started. Stop what is going on around you and listen to the lyrics to this song closely.

Is this you? Do you relate?


What if:

Imagine, it's 3 am and someone is beating on your front door and back door and you pick up the phone to call for help and there is no help. What would you do?

Or, you wake up to find your barn on fire and your animals are trapped inside. You call 911 to report the fire and get help and you are told "I'm sorry, there are no units available to respond to your needs.

What if you wake up and find your spouse suffering severe chest pains. You call 911 and you are told, "I'm sorry, there's no emergency medical units available to respond to your needs.?

What if you wake up to the sound of gunshots and you run to the window to look out and see roving gangs going door to door kicking in the doors and entering homes. You call 911 for help and you are told "I'm sorry, there are no officers to respond to your needs."

Imagine being outside on your lawnmower or tractor away from your home and you see two men running from the inside of your home carrying your child or wife. You rush to help but your family member is whisked away in the vehicle of a stranger. You call 911 and get no answer or the 911 has a voice recording telling you "I'm sorry, we have no officers available to support your needs."

What if your young grandchild is riding a bike at your home and wrecks, falling off the bike and striking his/her head on the corner of your brick porch. You hear screaming and you rush to the sound and find him/her on the ground, face covered in blood. You see a deep 4 inch gash in the forehead. In panic you call 911 to hear "I'm sorry, we currently have no emergency response capabilities to support your emergency." You are on your own. Can you handle it?

What if you haven't been paying attention and you head to the local market to grab some squirrel food and a copy of the Inquirer magazine along with some other groceries. On your way out of the store a truck speeds through the parking lot and stops in front of you. You are knocked down at gunpoint, robbed of your personal possessions and market purchase. You make it to your vehicle and call 911. You hear a voice recording inform you "I'm sorry, we currently have no emergency response capability available." What will you do?
