Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #145

Updated: Jan 14, 2022

Fellow Patriots,

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #145. Thanks for sharing your time with us here at Hope for Survival. Grab a good hot beverage and find a comfortable seat as you check out this week's PENL edition. Looks like a few areas could be receiving more snow going into the weekend. If you are in one of these areas, be cognizant of your utility lines being overloaded with weight and going down. Stay warm out there.

It was nice to have the week at home before hitting the road again this weekend heading to Joppa, AL for all day preparedness training on Saturday. It will be great spending the day with fellow Patriots talking preparedness planning. Hopefully the highways will stay dry and clear for the 48 hours I will be away from home. The good news is we are planting preparedness seeds to help others be prepared for what could be ahead.

As we roll through this edition of the PENL, I want to plant a question in your thoughts to think about. With all the unknowns around us and daily uneasiness in life, what is your firm foundation you depend on daily? Many of the forecast for 2022 continue the downward slide from 2021. What are you doing to ensure you are firmly planted and demonstrate a strong mind and voice for your family? If you are unsure of your answer, please reach out to me through email. This is one of the most important personal questions you will be asked. Think about it.

Herbal Studies - I wanted to run this again this week for anyone who may have missed it last week. Thanks for the positive feedback on this great opportunity. One of our Patriot sisters in Western N.C. provided the following website and information from Botan Logos to share with fellow Patriots regarding Herbal learning and studies. The following website has a wealth of information to include self-paced virtual studies to help educate Patriots. The particular course she is currently taking is $25.00 and you can download and complete at your own pace. Herbal Basics for Everyone – BotanoLogos School of Herbal Studies ( Thanks much for sharing this great opportunity with us. BotanoLogos is located in North Georgia.

Thursday Zoom Rallies – No Zoom Rally this week. The next zoom will be January 20, 2022

HFS Digital Football Sticks - The feedback on this product has been outstanding. It is a tool to help the individual or family preparer consolidate critical documents on one device. The stick is already set up with numerous file folders such as bank records, marriage certificates, deeds, titles, loans, passports, births, graduation diplomas.....and more. Several of the folders you see below will include sub-folders to break out the specific title.

You simply place your scanned document in the proper folder for storage. When you travel away from home or evacuate because of a disaster you now have all your important documents available on the football stick. It is also waterproof. You can order one or multiple sticks through the HFS website for $25.00 per stick.

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

From time-to-time folks will pop the question "what is the great reset and how will it impact our way of life?" Great question with no short answer. I received my monthly newsletter from Hillsdale College titled Imprimis which included a great article on the great reset. The article below was from the December edition by author, Michael Rectenwald, Chief Academic Officer, American Scholars. If you aren't already, I would encourage you to go to the link and sign up to receive outstanding articles and information from Hillsdale College. What Is the Great Reset? - Imprimis (

The following is adapted from a talk delivered at Hillsdale College on November 7, 2021, during a Center for Constructive Alternatives conference on “The Great Reset.”

Is the Great Reset a conspiracy theory imagining a vast left-wing plot to establish a totalitarian one-world government? No. Despite the fact that some people may have spun conspiracy theories based on it—with some reason, as we will see—the Great Reset is real.
