Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #125

Fellow Patriots,

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #125. 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 over the past month while on the road visiting HFS Groups and providing Preparedness Training.

Ms. Lucy and I are home for the week before heading to Virginia and West Virginia for the long weekend. For a few who may still be confused, West Virginia and Virginia are actually two states. I promise. It will be a short trip but time with family is always good. I'm sure we will have lots of great food, family chat about the world and hopefully some time riding the back roads of WV. It has been a while indeed.

We wish all of you a safe and blessed holiday weekend wherever you may be. If you are out and amongst groups be vigilant. We are approaching the 20th Anniversary of 911 and the recent events in Afghanistan, the US of A is prime for an attack on our home soil by foreign entities. Remember, stay outside the box and left of bang. If you don't know what I am talking about you should read my second book, The Mindset, which discusses it in full.

The weeks and months ahead are certainly unknown to what could happen. While it is important to be prepared, we must also not let each day be consumed with fear. Always remember, no matter what, we always are blessed with our faith. It should strengthen our daily life and keep our hope and thankfulness strong.

Hope for Survival now a Satellite Phone Affiliate - At this moment imagine being a spouse or parent and your loved one lived or was vacationing in the New Orleans area. 100% of cell phone coverage is down. You have zero capabilities to maintain contact to confirm your loved ones safety. How are they? Where are they? Are they hurt? Alive? Your stress level is driving your blood pressure higher and higher. What will you do? What can you do? These type events never happen to you or your family. The government always takes care of these things. How could they let the cellular phone towers go down? Why? Why? Why?

If you had preplanned you could have walked through possibilities and determined in your family communication plan maybe having a satellite phone as one of your P.A.C.E. communication capabilities. If you have never thought about or considered obtaining a satellite phone now is the time to check it out. Several of our HFS Patriots jumped on this deal over the past 90 days. Here is a link to more information on this topic. Hope for Survival - Satellite Phone Affiliate If you have decided you want a satellite phone already, go to the HFS website main page or blog page to find a box on the upper left and right sides.

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 first and foremost want to give a big shout out to Ms. Lucy and Festus this week for helping me keep the ship afloat. Your time and effort is much appreciated. This may have been the busiest week HFS has had since starting on this journey. It is a good busy. No complaints.


The time for getting prepared is dwindling away and folks are still watching television and wondering what will happen next. I am beginning to wonder if an asteroid was headed to earth and it appeared that half the United States would vanish, instead of moving away from the area to be impacted, folks would stand outside with their phones videoing the asteroid to post on social media. You may take it as me being sarcastic but I am not.

There was a time before Hope for Survival when I would have written the following letter and sent to people I care about. Of course that would be all our Patriots and family. It would read:
