Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #124

Fellow Patriots,

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #124. Thank you for stopping by to share your time with HFS. We are happy to have you with us. If you are a Patriot, vaccinated or unvaccinated, you are welcome here. Welcome to all the new Patriots we met down in Black Mountain, NC this past weekend.

Ms. Lucy and I will be on the road in KY at the time of the PENL posting to you. We are so excited and pumped up to return to spend the weekend with the awesome Patriots in Monticello for their 2nd Annual Preparedness Day. We are honored the host will have us back again. I must not have eaten to much macaroni and smoked turkey last year.

Thursday Zoom Rallies – HFS conducted zoom rally #65 with no guest for the week. The topics covered included a chat between myself and Festus on the current state of affairs with reflections back to the early years between 2010 and current day. We also discussed Deagel document with information regarding the US population in 2025 and other important preparedness information. Thanks to everyone who attended and supported the HFS Zoom Rally.

Hope for Survival YouTube - You can find the newest podcast at this link. While on the road last week I had a chance to interview a fellow HFS Patriot and discuss preparedness near a large city. I appreciate the opportunity to cross paths with him.

For the new Patriots you will find many helpful videos on canning, food preparedness, security and defense in depth, firearm safety discussions, canning meat, and other important topics.

Thanks for your consideration. Because I still work a full time day job, time is limited and I have not been able to set up a routine schedule for recording and posting videos yet.

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

In PENL #122 I discussed the importance of a food plan. I also shared information on gardening, how much to grow, types, seasonal growth, and that led in to the topic of starvation and the dangers of it when food shortages land in your area.

Over the past few weeks folks are sending me pictures from numerous stores and locations of empty shelves. Everything from lunch meat to vinegar, gallon water jugs to dehydrated foods. I even heard of one place where all the dog food shelves stood empty. I don't know how your location may be but these reports are coming from the coast of South Carolina to to Western, NC, to TN and northern Alabama. Even with these reports surfacing more and more, people are still dragging their feet to stock up on food resources. I'm not talking about the 95% who are clueless from the start. I'm talking about the 5% who claim to be preparers. But, lets move along.

I often think back to two quotes spoken in the past years by two prominent US Government authorities.

1. Former CIA Director William Casey once said "We'll know our disinformation program is complete. when everything the American public believes, is false.

2. Form Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said "““Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.”

Looking at the world and the United States today, do you think these statements could apply?

As we wind into the autumn and then winter ending 2021, can you do an assessment of your own food resources and say with confidence you are in better shape now than this time last year? HFS warned folks a year ago to start managing their food resources tighter and start, if not already, stocking food supplies for 2021 because of numerous factors going on. That being Covid-19, unemployment, supply chain disruptions, shortage of truck drivers and fuel, unavailability of resources, farmers being paid to not grow food, the western drought impacting cattle and farms, lack of canning supplies and so forth. A year ago HFS estimated food cost to escalate as much as 70% on some items in some regions of America.
