Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #147

Fellow Patriots,

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #147. Thanks for stopping by to check out our newsletter for the week. You may find it a bit entertaining as we don our tin foil hats to share some thoughts. I think it's safe to say this is a rare occasion. Can you believe this is the last newsletter for January 2022?

It was another busy week with lots going on in life, day job, and HFS. The days are full, sunup to sundown. It is how we use our time and resources in between this period that counts. Will you wake up tomorrow and be able to honestly tell yourself you are better prepared than the day before?

We conducted HFS Beta Test Food Calculator Working Group meeting #2, and it was great. Lots of positive growth on the product and it is exciting to see a past vision becoming a reality. I give a big shout out to the team for their continued accomplishments on this product. Once this product is completed and available to the public you will love it as a preparedness management tool.

I am looking forward to a busy weekend. Saturday morning Ms. Lucy and I will be hosting a preparedness meeting for our local community. This will include folks from our neighborhood and community getting together to discuss individual and group preparedness to learn and grow in self-reliance. On Sunday I will cruise up to Crossville, TN (90 miles) to have a working breakfast with Festus and the team leader for the Monticello, KY team. Once the morning meeting is complete, we will take a short break and then I will attend a Crossville training day on communications. It is always a good day when spending it with like-minded Patriots.

Just a little fun quiz. Can you break the code: KH- VP = SC + HRC = VP - JB = HRC > VP = P

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

Conspiracy Island - How do you like the title? It's meant in good spirit, but I think you will understand my point by the end of this thought. By the way, what is the difference between a cook conspiracy theorist and a government analyst pedaling the governments version of reality? If the government says you are guilty and you said you didn't do it, isn't it then the role of the government to prove your guilt? So, is it a conspiracy until proven true?

Several years ago, I met this guy named Festus and we have been on this rollercoaster about ten or so years now. One thing we discovered early in our friendship is we both enjoy playing "let's pretend" when reading and discovering interesting information. The number of hours spent reading, researching, and conversing on the many topics and things we found is countless. Just believe me when I tell you thousands of hours. Learning and understanding what we found was troubling and created a lot of concern for us and in our daily life. You see, it was things only kooks and conspiracy heads would believe or talk about. I'm sure along the path a few friends probably quietly called us nut jobs as well. The part I never understood was we found and shared things research presented to us, and it was so bizarre and off the radar the psyche of most humans would keep them from comprehending it. We often laughed along the way to keep our sanity. Honestly, it was like putting together an invisible puzzle back in the early days because we had so many pieces with no picture of what the end result would look like.

We have continued down the same path day to day, month to month and year to year. We have commented to the zoom group how many of the crazy conspiracies found 8 to 10 years ago are becoming realities now. We have been on the right track all along and many of the questions tabled ten years ago are now coming to life before our very eyes. This does not make us geniuses. It simply confirms what we have believed is coming to our nation and the world and it isn't pretty. It was worth it to us to invest the time and do research that lined up questions, some answers, and a path to what we see today.

In one of our recent Thursday Zoom sessions me and Festus presented some of this information to the group so they could write it down and go do research and form their own conclusion. That is the same as why I am sharing it with you. A pig can be as ugly or beautiful as your emotions and psychological make up wants it to be. Is boiling water hot when you touch it? Or, is it hot after you touch it and yell "ouch" and pull your hand back? My point is we all comprehend and decipher things in different ways. We can present the same information to a group of ten people and three will tell you its crazy. Another group of three will tell you it's on target. Three additional people will say "do you believe this stuff?" And the last person will be unable to respond because they are terrified. We are different and how we process and understand things is the same way.

A new law passed can be a simple law that is written as a good law for the people. Right? But when five laws are passed that when linked together during a crisis that gives authorities to much control and takes away freedoms and constitutional rights, its bad. Can we agree on that? Many people, to include myself for a long time, truly believed the federal government always has the good of the people in mind and would only do and pass laws that has the citizens of this great nation as a priority. I think our forefathers understand realities and put guardrails and bumpers in place to protect us from the government regardless of party or person in power.

Because of the platform and amount of available information available there is no way I can write and share the depths of information researched over the years that we connected together where Executive Orders, Federal and State Laws, and Acts, can be used against us and/or tied together to do so. This is simply my opinion, and the local librarian would probably argue the point I missed the point of the document. Good enough. I'm sticking with my own understanding and perception of what I read. Remember, these are the same people who wants to put us all in electric cars which will take away our freedom to travel long distances without stopping to plug in and be accounted for. We found so much "stuff" in our research that it would have been impossible to even document all of it and then remember it. Today, years later, I wish we had tried to document most of it. I do recall spending time trying to find out if the old code, "Na-noo, Na-noo," Mork used on the Mork and Mindy Show in the late 1970s was code for "leave while you can." That would be a conspiracy, I'm sure.
