Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #136

Fellow Patriots,

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #136. Thank you for stopping by to spend some time checking out the PENL. It has been another outstanding week for us here in the East Tennessee Hills. It is certainly a blessing to wake each day to see a beautiful sunrise and the remaining golden leaves hanging around. My buddy Wilson is running around on warp speed gathering the last nuts for his winter foodbank. I really need to catch up with him to get his take on world events. I wonder if I should share the conversation a HFS Patriot had with me about eating squirrel gravy as a child. I need to think on this one.

As many of you prepare for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday and time with family (I hope), try to make it a very special Thanksgiving together. It has been two hard years for many and with the future so unknown at this point, share quality time and talk about things that are important to all of you. Discuss some of your thoughts on plans at some point after Thanksgiving day. Maybe gather around the table and build or go over your Family Communication Plan with a just in case described need.

If you are traveling over the holiday period, cross-check your plans and access to news and email in the event things go south while you are away from home. Do you have a plan to get home if things turn south? Now would be the perfect time to ensure your plans are in place and they work. Just saying....

Let us move along...

information offered through HFS.

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.

You can obtain information on the two HFS books at this link: Survival, Preparedness, Disaster Management for individuals or family (

Hope for Survival - How Food, Water, Shelter, and Security Could Save Your Life (Book 1)

Hope for Survival - The Mindset (Book 2)

We must make this brief public announcement to protect the innocent.

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

If you haven't figured it out I am a red, white, and blue junky. Motivational speakers promoting freedom, respect, and love of country and arguments defending the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence, will stop my motion and capture my attention. Festus shared a good one with me this week and I wanted to share it with you. Just a while wonder, could this gent be a candidate for President of the United States in 2024 or 2028?


Mental Preparedness - In the past month while working with and providing training and information to the HFS Zoom Patriots I shared I was turning the heat up on information, accountability and attention to detail. No, I'm not trying to be a jerk to my fellow Patriot sisters and brothers. I'm simply trying to get their attention to detail and psychological toughness enhanced to prepare them in the area of mental preparedness. It is key and essential to understand each and every step to be performed without pause or failure.
