Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #132

Fellow Patriots,

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #132. Thank you for stopping by to share your time with HFS. Ms. Lucy and I hope you are enjoying October as we pass through it quickly. It is beautiful here in the Tennessee mountains. Our temperatures are cooling down quickly in the evenings and we now enjoy autumn. It is great.

I want to give a shout out to the HFS Patriots sending emails and other communications through the week. Most of the HFS Patriots are in the southeastern US but we are picking up readers in Oregon, Washington, California, Texas, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Arizona. It is evident from seeing HFS traffic and other website traffic, preparedness is a growing topic and practice. Why? More are realizing something is terribly wrong.

Here at HFS my goal is to be as up front and share thoughts, trends, and helpful preparedness information to help you. It is not my goal or intent to flood this newsletter or website with "stuff" you can find on other websites and networks. Sometimes I can't hold back and may make a point or cover a topic but I try to steer clear of the negative stuff. However, a lot of the information is dark and not motivating no matter how we look at it. I encourage you to stay positive, upbeat, and charging ahead. Be the leader and example many others could use right now.

It is always a great week when I get to spend time with a fellow Patriot. One of our HFS Patriot sisters from Virginia was passing through our area so Ms. Lucy and I got to meet up with her to have lunch and a great chat. She had been over to West Knoxville, TN to shop at the LDS preparedness store. It is awesome spending time with fellow preparers who are on fire with energy and a desire to be better prepared. It was a great conversation on numerous preparedness topics, especially team building and community importance. We appreciate her stopping to spend time with us.

Some of you may remember in October 2020 HFS projected food prices to go up 50% to 70% by late summer and early autumn 2021. We are now living through it. Multiple CEOs spoke out this week projecting more cost escalations and shortages comparable to Soviet-era life styles. What? Does this alarm anyone? I got to see this in person and wrote about it in my first book. It was not just a depressing scene. It was heart wrenching to see the looks on citizens faces as they walked away from the daily food line empty handed. Train cars full of global aid intended for the people that went to leaders and royalty while the people starved. Just like in North Korea. Plenty of aid for the masses rotting away while the citizens boiled shoe and boot soles to eat and fill their bellies on a cold winter night. Can you envision this act of survival?

You are going to see many of the extras going away. What do I mean. During the Soviet era and post Soviet era life citizens had to go get in lines daily for each days food. Often times nothing was available. I witnessed this in my former life. A typical store was one brand of corn, beans, potatoes, and mixed vegetables. Food CEOs are projecting the same for the future days in America. Coke and Pepsi. No Root Beer, Tab, RC Cola, or Mountain Dew as an example. You won't find five brands of corn. You won't find four types of macaroni and cheese. Get used to it fellow Patriots. Just remember, we warned you here a year ago. Rising cost, severe lack of resources to produce cans, fuel cost, truck driver shortages, cargo container shortages. Does your head hurt yet?

Coming soon - One of our Patriot sisters sent the following link to share with you in the PENL. She will also be providing links and information in the future on topics in this area as well as some of her own videos and articles on the topic of medicinal plants and herbal remedies and recipes. We look forward to obtaining some of her knowledge and information. I pass a big thanks to HC for her time and willingness to share with others.

HFS Digital Football Stick - In the event you have not been a part of the Thursday Zoom Rallies, read my books, or watched my most recent HFS YouTube video on the Digital football and how to build one, you can check it out here. While on the HFS YouTube page consider subscribing to the HFS YouTube channel. Several folks asked me to do the video to explain how to do the digital football. Since then, several folks commented it was to hard or they didn't have the computer skills to do it. So, if we can get enough interest from HFS Patriots, I will get HFS monogrammed USB Memory Sticks and load the digital football on the stick for you and then mail them out to you. Then all you would need to do is scan all your important documents and load them in the prebuilt folders on the stick I would send to you. The sticks are $25. Here is what they they look like.

If you think you would like to have one of the sticks please go to the website front page go to the link at the top of the page. Click the link to order Survival, Preparedness, Disaster Management for individuals or family ( or email me at in the next few days to let me know your interest. You can order more than one if you desire. They would make a great Christmas gift to go along with one or both of the HFS books on preparedness. NOTE: I have 9 of the 75 ordered sticks remaining. I can order more but it will be a two week delay on the product after the last 9 are sold.

Hope for Survival books: The holidays are approaching quickly and now is a great time to order and receive copies of my two preparedness books. In the past HFS members purchase books for family members who may be in their early stages of preparedness. It is also a good time to purchase books because all proceeds off the books goes to a local charity to fund food for those in need. The number in need today is high and they will go higher going in to winter as many work seasonal jobs or others who are losing jobs because of no vaccination. HFS donates the largest amount to this cause during the holiday period to help ensure all families will have a good meal over Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. HFS is very appreciative to past purchases of my books to help support this growing need.
