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:

Dear Loved One,

I’m addressing the subject of “Preparedness” to YOU!!! Do you realize that you already prepare for many things in your life and simply take it for granted? It’s a simple process we go through to complete each day. We sleep to rest for the next day. We wake up to go to work. We eat to feed our body and give it strength. We put gas in our automobiles to ensure we get from point A to point B. We have car insurance because it’s the law but also because we want to have the means available to replace and/or fix our automobile. We have home insurance for the same reason, right? Why do we lock our doors at night? Why does a governor evacuate a region or state when storms approach? Why do southern U.S. States close for business when the weather person forecast snow the following day? When the local news broadcast a pending storm approaching the area, what do you do? Are you one of the many who rushes out to buy milk, bread and ice cream to get through the storm? Why? You are simply doing what everyone else does…..react to the situation along with 90% of the population. So why stop there?

With current technology and the existing “supply on demand” concept, most cities are only stocked for a 72 hour period. That’s food, fuel and medication. Want me to repeat that? This means, if the 18 wheelers stop rolling, after a 72 hour period nothing is left….except what YOU have prepared. Let me state this point in another manner. Roughly 70 percent of all commodities consumed are moved by truck. Add another $295 billion in truck trade with Canada and $105.6 billion in truck trade with Mexico and it becomes apparent that any disruption in truck traffic will lead to rapid economic instability. That means no food, gas, or medicines. What comes next? Remember the Louisiana EBT shutdown story? How about the recent Hurricanes, IRMA, Harvey and Juan mass evacuations from Florida and Texas?

This means, significant shortages will occur in as little as three days, especially for perishable items following a national emergency. Shortages will start appearing on day two, not day three. Do YOU want to be amongst the 90% of the local populace in your area trying to get the last items off the shelf? My point is: you have a choice. You can take steps now NOT be a part of the 90% who are unprepared.

We can focus on the types of major disasters and events to cause the points made above. Hurricane, blizzards, ice storms, floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, electro-magnetic pulse, solar flares, economic disruption to include collapse, pandemic outbreak, planet x, nuclear war, civil strife, zombie apocalypse. …………… Yes, certain precautions should be taken for these type events, however, if you aren’t preparing FOOD, WATER, SHELTER, SECURITY, and medication to take care of you and your family, you will most definitely fall in to the government’s 90% projection. Have you heard about it? Yes, the U.S. Government says through a Congressional study that 90% of the U.S. population will die in the first year as a result of a major pandemic outbreak or EMP attack on the grid. Have YOU ever lived through a power outage lasting 72 hours? Can you handle an outage lasting longer than a year?

Let’s talk about how YOU can take steps to prepare you to be more self-sufficient and prepared to handle the next crisis that comes along. Remember, the disaster is the event taking place, not the fact YOU failed to prepare. When you are out of food and water, cold, and a stranger is knocking on your door begging for what little food you may have, it is now YOUR own personal disaster. Think about it. Are YOU ready now? Get prepared!!! Read, educate, and prepare. Want to get started? Contact me at

Now, a few years later I do see a select group of Patriots preparing for the unknown. None of us can predict the future. I don't want to predict it because it will go according to God's plan, not mine. I simply prepare for the unknown. I like to consider fellow Patriot Jonathon Hollerman's motto of "Plan for the worst, hope for the best, and let God deal with the rest." Right? But I must be honest and share that I only see a small percentage of Patriots taking things serious and adapting the right mindset. It is much easier to prepare when you believe in what you are doing.

The importance of preparing is becoming more of a need today than a wish or thought. I am getting multiple reports of warehouse issues with a couple different grocery food chain stores in the east and southeast states. I have multiple sources with no connections in different locations sharing messages to me on what they are hearing and finding. Several are managers who orders and receives weekly reports and products from the warehouse and trucks. What we are hearing now should not come as a surprise when one thinks back to the natural disasters over the past few years and how these disasters impacted farmers and ranchers ability to grow crops, chickens, pork, and beef. We now are witnessing the end result. Less availability and higher prices. HFS warned Patriots last fall this was coming. This is why stocking food by freezing, freeze drying or canning it is so important. The days of stopping by the local Stop-n-Rob to fill up your cart and then get hijacked on the total bill. Food availability will come to a screeching halt when what is available is not affordable.

We continue hearing of national truckers striking in protest of mandatory vaccinations for long haul trucking across America. When I decided to go forward to begin helping and teaching preparedness my very first article was titled When the 18 Wheelers Stop Rolling and citizens cannot access food, medicines and gasoline, America will stop doing business as usual. Our standard use of a just in time supply system will become a failure. Just like I mentioned in the letter above. There will be no local warehouses to pull extra supplies from. What you see is what you get. Think about that.

I have always chosen topics carefully because I never wanted to be considered a source labeled as a "sky is falling" preparer or contributor to information preparers depend on. We have enough of that all around us. No one knows the intent of the those in control and we can only do research and conduct analysis of information. Debt, buying and shipping, natural and manmade disasters and the impact on abilities during post disaster recovery, wars, and failures of government. The list is long. What we hear, understand, and do with the information is what is important. The best advice I can offer above this information is for those of faith to start focusing stronger efforts on their faith and less on the dependence of man. If you want to put your faith in man, just look around to the world you occupy and make a list of man's failures. We are putting children in mask. Many cities with zoo's are now vaccinating zoo animals to protect them from Covid-19. Really. Would this have anything to do with the mainstream effort to eliminate meat from the human diet? Maybe? Remember, the world would be a cleaner place with a better environment if we stop raising livestock for human consumption. The craziness seems to escalate daily. Think about it, in 25 years newborns will come on to this planet with no desire to have or knowledge of consuming meat of any type.

So think about it. Natural disasters continue destroying crops and food growth, animals will be eliminated, and available food will be controlled by those in control. Remember the corner market I mentioned above? It will be closed down and out of business. Only box stores such as Costco and Sam's Club will be available for your food needs. Do you think they will favor humans or a one world government? Now, let me ask again, why are those who claim to be preparers not preparing? You may have interest in preparing and spend your days filling your brain with hours of fear mongering information and maybe you have watched every anti-vaccination podcast or video available, but doing nothing to preserve food and resources for the future. I often hear some people of faith state "please Lord come back now." My only comment to this statement is we have a tasking and responsibility to stay here on earth as long as possible to reach out and save souls. I believe purposely heading for he nearest exit to escape the earth is going against that responsibility according to our faith. But that is just my thoughts.

We all have to be responsible and accountable for our own self and choices made will rest with each individual. If you still do not believe anything is happening out of the norm here on earth I would encourage you to read the latest letter from Arch Bishop Vigano - Viganò: considerations on the Great Reset and the New World Order - LifeSite (

If you do not have food, or enough food, or preparedness resources please reach out and email me or give our Patriot sister and brother at Carolina Readiness Supply a call. They have they fully stocked resources right now to help you get started. What are you waiting on? Call 1-828-456-5310.

Ms. Lucy and I journeyed to Monticello, Kentucky to attend and support the HFS Group leader in the 2nd Annual Preparedness Social and spend the weekend with our HFS Kentucky family. As always, it was great and we hated for it to end on Saturday evening. This year included a Friday evening meet and greet to those who could attend and then an all day preparedness training day on Saturday. Great fun, great group, and great post training questions posed by the Patriots in attendance. These events take effort by the hosts and HFS appreciates all the host family puts in to the event. Thank you for the kindness and hospitality you extended to us. It was also a pleasure to spend the day with all the Patriots attending. Some repeats from last year and others new attending this year. Here's a few pictures from the event. Here is a link to the Kentucky Preparedness Training YouTube video:

Next ...

Why? Why? Why? Why does our leadership continue flooding our nation on the border and through the air with unvetted, undocumented, unvaccinated, and third world humans? Let's get this straight. I am not against immigration. It is how we started and built the greatest nation in history. My issue is why is our government paying billions of dollars per month to keep U.S. citizens out of the work force? The citizens of our great nation are being controlled through threats and the fear of a pandemic that is debatable. Yes, people are dying and it is terrible. It is terrible on any account but the common flu and influenza also kills people and our nation does not lock down, require masks, or vaccinations. Ones shot, two shots, and now a booster shot, using ingredients that failed laboratory testing when used on animals. Testimonies from around the world reveal horror stories of post vaccine Covid-19 reactions. Yet, thousands upon thousands are being transported all across America unchecked, unvaccinated in most cases, undocumented, and with no accountability. Why? Seeing how we evacuated and fled Afghanistan, why should we believe the intentions of the evacuees would be any different? Think about it.

Okay, lets move along to the news…

Preparedness News

1. From Fabian Onmar - The Organic Prepper - The Rules of Surviving a Black Market Economy ( - Preparers often ask the question on bartering. Here is another opinion on this topic.

2. From Prep School Daily - Prep School Daily: How to Sterilize Medical Instruments in an Austere Environment - This is one of the most important steps to have covered during austere circumstances to prevent infection. If you can't do this step your efforts to treat the wound, gunshot injury, or other skin abrasions, your effort could be worthless.

3. From Linda Loosli - Food Storage Moms - What You Should Buy At Thrift Stores - Food Storage Moms - Our household often frequents thrift shops and yard sales to find great preparedness resources at great prices. Especially tools, clothing, and old equipment that is non-electric and manually operated. This is a great place to find clothing a size smaller and larger than what you are wearing now. Remember, you may have prepared and eating well, but when you are around others who aren't so lucky you want to wear baggy clothing to appear you are losing weight like everyone else.

4. From Prep School Daily - Prep School Daily: Diverticulitis in Doomsday - If you have ever suffered from a diverticulitis attack you will want to have a plan in place to counter the attack when a doctor is not available.

5. From Gordon Atkins - New Life on the Homestead - 6 Native American Food Preservation Techniques for the Modern Homesteader • New Life On A Homestead - No fridge or freezer? No solar to run a fridge or freezer? What is your plan to preserve your vital resources requiring temperature controlled items?

Other News

1. From Michael Snyder - The Economic Collapse - The Media Says “The Delta Variant Stole Christmas”, And Severe Shortages Are Projected To Stretch Long Into 2022 | The Economic Collapse ( - As HFS continues to alert Preparers to the coming shortages, many continue ignoring the warning signs. What will they do when the shelves are empty?

2. From Susan Keating and John Soloman - Just the News - Exclusive: In secret texts, U.S. military officials lamented leaving Americans behind in Kabul | Just The News - While we hear the narrative being broadcast from the government side, many on ground in Afghanistan are telling another story. Many Americans near the airport wished to depart and got left behind. This is a unforgiveable act. (Thanks Festus for this submission)

3. From - Jennifer Margulis - Epoch Times - Why Is COVID-19 Severe for Some? ( - Will we ever truly know the extend of damage being caused in some humans? Some beliefs appear so far fetched most will turn their heads to a possible reality. Could the truth to it match Biblical scripture?

4. From Dr. Richard Proctor - Saving the Constitution - Saving The Constitution ( - Many new preparers to HFS are asking for information on the Constitution. This link will take you to Dr Proctor's weekly podcast covering different Amendments of the Constitution. This is a great starting point as well as purchasing his books on the Constitution.

5. From Forbidden Knowledge - What We Are About to See * Merritt * Palevsky * Zelenko * NWO – Forbidden Knowledge TV - THIS IS A MUST SEE. Put your seat belt on and hang on. Stick with this video through the end. This is another finalization to information Festus and myself discovered years ago. A friend traced the ownership of major corporations to the top final owners to reveal about five, as is covered in this video.

Drum roll...........

That's all my Patriot brothers and sisters.

This week was a record week for readers to HFS and PENL #125. Thanks for your continued support to HFS, your emails, messages, and prayers to the HFS family. We appreciate each of you.

Prayers - Please keep our great nation, our elected leaders, military and first responders in your thoughts and prayers. We pray for good health and wisdom. Please pray for our leadership to find answers and guidance to the problems facing our great nation. May your faith remain strong and answers to the unknown provided. God is good and may our prayers blanket and protect you and your circumstances. I pray for each, and every one of our Patriots.

May we pray for all the blessings and things in life to be thankful about and continued hope for revival around the world. We must continually pray for the unsaved, our family and friends who live each day without the protection for eternal life and salvation.

We have Patriots with personal prayer needs and/or family members with prayer needs as well.

Please pray for our Patriot brother in Northern Alabama who is suffering from Covid-19 and has been hospitalized nearly two months. Our Patriot brother and family needs many prayers for uplifting.

Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Western NC as they continue recovery efforts from the recent floods. Many residents are still displaced. This is a terrible situation for so many.

Please pray for our Patriot brother and sister in Eastern, TN who are currently going through the Covid-19 at home. We pray for both to have a speedy and full recovery. Our brother is currently in isolation at a major hospital and our sister who is caring for him, also is battling Covid-19 symptoms as well. We pray for protection for his family to be shielded and not impacted.

Please pray for our Patriot sister who will be having eye surgery this week. Pray for a successful procedure and quick turn around and positive recovery.

Please remember all the citizens in Middle, TN who received over 17 inches of rain which created mass flooding and destruction costing over 20 citizens their life.

Please pray for Haiti and the people who against must suffer through post-disaster crime and corrupt government leadership that fails to protect the citizens.

We also must pray for the situation ongoing in Afghanistan. This topic has so many prayer needs.

As we have prayer needs for answers to health and family matters we also have prayers of thanks for recent health answers and recoveries.

We all must pray strong and often for the citizens of our great nation. Many of our sisters and brothers are struggling daily with things they witness, encounter, and are surprised with out of the norm. Many times we are in unchartered areas, however, we still must keep our faith and focus on the big picture. Our prayers and faithful strength together will be required often to battle the evils being thrown upon all of us minute by minute.

As Patriots we must stay strong and never give up. Our home, community and nation needs us now more than ever. Stay focused on your local community and things that will impact you around the nation. Don't allow the events around you to create fear in your life. Build your own self-reliance and focus on hope. Remember we are a blessed nation and we must continue to be great people today and make a better tomorrow. Keep charging."
