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
Okay, let's move along. First a few business items and promoting HFS.

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.
Here's just a few examples of many:
A few years ago, a massive fire burned up an area in California destroying acres of land, homes and infrastructure. It was interesting to view overhead footage of the fire and its path. It was strange how the fire burnt hundreds, if not thousands of acres and everything in its path.....except trees. Hmmm. One of the conspiracies around this disaster is the path burned is close to the same path the California government seeks to develop a passenger rail system. Wouldn't the land be much cheaper now because homes are gone, and the property value will drop?
Another good example of conspiracy surrounds the events around September 11, 2001, or better known as 9-1-1. The debate here is not about what happened and who caused it. The events of 9-1-1 brought about the Patriot Act. If you remember back to that period in history, most Americans tuned in to watch 9-1-1 and it was another example of the power of television, media persuading the narrative, and psychological psychosis. Remember when members of our government who braved the possible threat of additional terrorist attacks and went to the steps of the Washington Capitol building and connected arms to sing "kumbaya" we will protect you because we are from the government. Shortly after this day we heard of the protection of all evils called the Patriot Act. Remember that? "My fellow Americans, in order to protect you from evil we must take away some of your freedoms." Then we learn afterwards, the Patriot Act was drafted and ready for delivery before 9-1-1-. Hmmm. Did you feel protected by the government after the Patriot Act deployed? I did. Go get them terrorist. You bet, stricter banking laws on transferring and wiring money from accounts. Oh, I really liked filling out all the paperwork to wire or receive certain amounts of cash. I'm surprised a game show wasn't started called "You Could Be a Terrorist If?" I was always impressed how the government had so much foresight to draft the Patriot Act before the 9-1-1 attack ever happened. It wasn't long after the kumbaya the power of politics shifted and shazam, I now fit the category profile of a domestic terrorist according to my own government who I supported most of my adult life. I then thought to myself what President Reagan used to warn us about. The scariest nine words used in a sentence. "I'm from the government and I'm here to help."
It was also because of 9-1-1 and the Patriot Act, the government built and expanded capabilities to record and track all digital and voice messaging coming in and going out of the United States. It wasn't long after learning this we learned anything and everything going over the internet, text, voice messaging, phone calls, birds tweeting, train whistles blowing, dogs, barking, and kids singing God Bless America, gets recorded. When the word algorithm surfaced, I immediately thought it was a new Latin dance.
Most recently we have endured two plus years of Coronavirus and Covid-19. Way too many deaths, illnesses, and psychological issues surrounding this event. Another event of psychological psychosis and the media controlling the narrative. Further division of the world, society, families, and friends. Masked or no mask. Vax or no vax. Imbedded within this ongoing Covid-19 fiasco has been orange man bad, Brandon good. Before it all started, 80 to 90 % of the global nation's pandemic plan read word for word the same. I believe it was roughly eight pages in length. How could that be? Shortly after the Covid-19 pandemic started, guess what? Every single one of them changed and now they read the same again. How could that be the case unless it is being dictated from above or they all are in unison to treatments? To many this is a conspiracy, however I'm simply stating the facts I have learned. There had to be an event happen to control the entire populace of the world. Hmmm, what could that be? A pandemic? I know it's a conspiracy because the pandemic was telegraphed ahead of the pandemic by two high-level individuals. As a person told me, it was an actor pretending to be Dr. Fauci in the video and not really him. It was pretend.
Before the Covid-19 era, we witnessed numerous events, policies, and actions to start the process of separating children and parents. Many would say the government owns your child and your job is to simply feed and provide shelter. The government, through education, will take care of developing the child. Got it? We have witnessed the father and Father removed from the home. Think about it, when a government discourages a woman from having a man in the house yet pays her additional funding for each child she has in the home, one must raise the antenna a bit. Then children are encouraged to come to school and tell their teacher secrets from home. While a parent may have evening family reading of the Bible and the school has group reading on topics that would make a porn star blush. Who needs to learn history when sex education for elementary aged children is more productive? We transitioned through the "I want to be an it" period to states allowing parents up to five years from birth to decide what sex a child will be. Huh? Keep this in mind because the agenda 2030 period we all will get to be anything we wish to be. Think about the last 30 years of transition. We started with everyone gets a trophy and no F's allowed for poor performance, to presenting sexual topics in public schools to elementary kids. Then we see parents being sued by children for custodial rights and divorcing the parents from their life. We fall asleep and wake up to find pregnant woman called husbands dawning a mustache and beard. Huh? We are conspiracy nuts, and they trot out women called husbands and are pregnant. These are not fads or short-term fantasies. Welcome to the new world and we aren't welcome because our normal thinking of sound judgement and morality is not acceptable.
Oh wait, we aren't finished yet. Children and how this craziness being pumped into the brains and daily routines of children is having a major impact on society, both short and long term. In the most recent development of children through the Covid-19 period it is now being reported that our toddlers are showing signs of slowed child development and speech issues. Get that mask on and if you don't, I will tape it to your head.
You know, a conspiracy. So, after the Patriot Act and everything being tracked and recorded to your digital profile being kept by the government, we now have the ability during the Covid-19 era to track each citizen down to their footprint. I find it interesting when I'm out driving doing HFS stuff how I pass through certain locations (controlled by liberal government) and my cell phone gets a message asking if I want to apply a digital Covid-19 positive cases tracker. Oh wait, cell towers track us. That's right. Now, this has pros and cons and I'm not saying it's all bad. I'm simply pointing out the capability and how it can be used against you negatively.
It seems like with each major event in America or globally, new laws must be put in place to protect us. Remember the Jan 6, event were thousands of Patriots traveled to Washington D.C. to support the outgoing President and the day ended with Patriots being jailed for weeks to come? A few labeled it as an attack on America and what we stand for. Just recently Politico published this article about Jan 6, before and after:
The article reads:
U.S. Capitol Police quietly investigating individuals.
Did you know the U.S. Capitol Police have an intelligence unit? They sure do, and, unknown to almost everyone, they’ve been stepping up their activities. This is yet another “security measure” put in place after January 6 on the pretext that America is under threat from domestic terrorism. POLITICO broke the story after speaking with people familiar with the new policies; they’ve also examined correspondence describing the new approach.
The intel unit is now quietly investigating the backgrounds of people who meet with lawmakers, including their social media accounts. They’re apparently doing the same to Hill staffers. The concept of “civil liberties” becomes more and more nebulous every day.
North Dakota Rep. Kelly Armstrong, a Republican and former criminal defense attorney, compared these new activities to spying. “Whatever they think that sounds like for security,” he said, “it sounds dangerously close --- if not already over the line --- to spying on members of Congress, their staff, their constituents and their supporters. Anybody involved with implementing this without making it known to the actual members of Congress should resign or be fired immediately. And I’m not big on calling for resignations.”
“We need to know everything,” he said. I want to know where it goes, how high it goes, and why all of this exists.”
According to POLITICO, the Capitol Police brought on former Department of Homeland Security official Julie Farnam in the fall of 2020, and she changed a lot of protocols in the weeks leading up to January 6, apparently causing “internal confusion” about priorities. After January 6, she went further, changing the template for what they call Congressional Event Assessments, which are done to anticipate the risks of meetings and events held away from the Capitol. (That would now be all of them, as the Capitol building itself remains closed to visitors.) Farnam is directing her analysts to look closer into the pre-Jan 6 details. Article ends.
Let me ask you this, is it a conspiracy for Patriotic Americans to identify and question why American citizens got locked into their homes, put working from home, denied a lot of normal travel to visit family, yet our government bussed, trucked, and flew hundreds of thousands of non-citizens across our borders with no mask or vaccines? If the government truly works for the people, and the people pay the salaries of the elected government employees, as a society why do we allow them to dictate policies not good for our nation?
So, here's a few things we hear about today as if its new, yet its thing we found and learned about ten years ago or longer. I'm going to keep this at a minimum for reasons I won't put on here. This is minimal sampling:
- A bank bail-in - With a bank bail-in, the bank uses the money of its unsecured creditors, including depositors and bondholders, to restructure their capital so it can stay afloat. ... A bank can undergo a bail-in quickly through a resolution proceeding, which provides immediate relief to the bank. This means, once deposited you basically no longer own your money. Doesn't it make you mad when you have been banking with a bank for 20 plus years and now you go to get money out and they talk to you and treat you like a criminal? "Why do you need your money?" The bank bail-in started back around 2012 and I will let you guess who was in the Oval at that time. It has been said the bank bail-in was part of protections put in place after the 2008 financial collapse. You know, kind of like the Patriot Act after 9-1-1.
In short, As of December 2012, federal laws, government agency approvals, international agreements, and tactical procedures are in place so the next big bank failure will trigger an entirely new resolution policy. No longer will there be a government-taxpayer funded Bail-Out, but rather a Bail-In. The big banks will be allowed to confiscate your deposits at their discretion with no prior notice. Your compensation for the bank’s absconding with your money is a new issuance of stock in their bank. As of December 2012, federal laws, government agency approvals, international agreements, and tactical procedures are in place so the next big bank failure will trigger an entirely new resolution policy. No longer will there be a government-taxpayer funded Bail-Out, but rather a Bail-In. The big banks will be allowed to confiscate your deposits at their discretion with no prior notice.
HR 645 (January 2009) - To direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish national emergency centers on military installations. Part of this included what is called the NOVAD National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) or Clergy Response Team (CRT). There is good and bad to this one and can be taken for what it is worth. Just as federal and state positions hold Kool-Aid drinkers, the same can be said about some in the pulpit. When a disaster occurs, the CRT can be called upon by the government to aid and/or assist in a particular disaster, manmade or natural, to counsel victims or to aid the government in persuading individuals in the disaster zone to follow the governments guide or recommendations to relocate or go to government controlled "safe-zones" which could be a FEMA controlled environment. We can debate the purposes of these camps, good or bad. One trained clergy questioned the CRT claim to be faith-based coalition structured as a non-governmental organization. Operates on a national scale supported by DHS tax dollars.
Personally, I can attest to having been at a disaster area on multiple accounts were having a clergy or two available was a great asset to the mission. This was a role of consoling victims who may be injured or who lost homes or family members. This is a good role. When NOVAD surfaced and it was discovered FEMA was providing training, conspiracy hats immediately went to work. The question or concern is why does a CRT need to be available to do a government officials job to convince citizens to relocate to a government-controlled camp or holding facility? How would you feel or respond if you heard a knock at your door and found your pastor standing with a smile and he then used scripture to convince you to follow him to a bus where you would be transported to a safe area controlled by the government, federal or state? Now common sense would tell most of us this is a case-by-case situation.
Not a proven, but suspected is the connection between CRT and 501C3 Clergy. If this the case? Still a possibility I suppose but it appears again to be a case-by-case circumstance. You may be asking, "what is 501c3 and what do I see as a possible connection between 501c3 and CRT?
Section 501(c)(3) is a portion of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code (IRC) and a specific tax category for nonprofit organizations. Organizations that meet the requirements of Section 501(c)(3) are exempt from federal income tax. ... 501(c)(3) organizations must pay their employees fair market value wages. This means once accepted, in many ways the government now owns and can dictate to the 501c3 recipient compliance with mandated government laws and positions on specific items. This would mean a preacher would be limited and/or controlled in preaching the Bible 100% because of certain topics covered in the Bible that are considered discriminatory in our society. Wouldn't one believe when a CRT accepts tax benefits from the federal government in one program, they would then be liable for strict government compliance across the board in every area? Just saying.
- American Psychiatric Association Manual 5th Addition (2013) - The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, is the 2013 update to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the taxonomic and diagnostic tool published by the American Psychiatric Association. The APA website says "Help support activities and programs that move psychology, and society, forward." Another definition says "Our mission is to promote the advancement, communication, and application of psychological science and knowledge to benefit society and improve lives. We do this by: Utilizing psychology to make a positive impact on critical societal issues." The manual has been referred as "new partner in crime and it created the new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (5th Edition) which was adopted. Offers a subjective approach in diagnosing mental illness that basically ends free speech and any form of political dissent. Basically, anyone who opposes its unconstitutional policies as having “political paranoia” which is now diagnosed as a type of mental illness. This new manual targets internet users and conspiracy theorists.
Now, what you just read is from 2013. It is now nine years later, and we are seeing all the censorship and controlling of political voices by digital platforms. We are also hearing of a near future launch of a social scoring mechanism that will punish you further for negative attacks against government officials. You can be controlled further through a digital passport which will control your banking accounts. Some have said the APA system is a back-door method to disarm citizens who would oppose the abject tyranny being imposed. If you disagree with the government, you can be diagnosed and labeled political schizophrenia or to have oppositional defiant disorder. Interestingly, in its analysis of the political abuse of psychiatry in both the Soviet Union and China, The Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law. stated that “Psychiatric incarceration of mentally healthy people is uniformly understood to be a particularly pernicious form of repression, because it uses the powerful modalities of medicine as tools of punishment, and it compounds a deep affront to human rights with deception and fraud…” In psychiatric terms, we have become the old Soviet Union where we can be incarcerated and stripped of our rights for having the illness of “political schizophrenia”. Is this exactly what we are seeing in the Jan 6, 2021, incarcerated, untried and Un convicted, illegally held citizens in solitary confinement in Washington, DC?
Just recently I learned of a global agreement between all nations to censor the internet and punish all violators by suspending the person(s) or else terminate access for hate speech and true or untrue comments that are negative towards governments, people, and groups. In short, we will never know the truth. We will simply shut up and color and be happy about it. Oh wait, that falls in line with the former Agenda 21, then Wilderness Corridor, and now Agenda 2030. Folks look at me sternly and with that "you are crazy look" when I bring up Agenda 2030. I have to laugh. If they would simply read and do some research, they would read the same information I share. Imagine that.
I believe a digital passport is the key to many of these future plans. More defined, 5G and the digital passport is essential to pull this off. The digital passport will control everything about you, and the 5G will control the global brain and all the drone receptors controlling information received and sent from citizens. I will stop at this point on this topic.
What is Agenda 2030? The Sustainable Development Goals or Global Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all". The SDGs were set up in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030. They are included in an UN-GA Resolution called the 2030 Agenda or what is colloquially known as Agenda 2030. The SDGs were developed in the Post-2015 Development Agenda as the future global development framework to succeed the Millennium Development Goals which ended in 2015. The 17 goals aim for the re-ordering of all human activity. The Pope and UN will ask 193 national leaders to summit and promote the new U.N. plan to usher in its planed global utopia. Agenda 2030 is designed to end world poverty. Everyone will learn to live on minimal space, food, and income. Have you heard the saying "you will eat bugs and grass and be happy about it? The New World Order is based on Socialist model. This model takes away everything that sustains any semblance of individual liberty and freedom. I mentioned we will live in minimal space. The document says citizens will live in 400 sq ft apartments, use public transportation, food and materials will be provided and supervised. All national sovereignty will be phased out. That means the United States will no longer have borders.
The important part here is YOU will be happy. With all provisions being provided and everyone being equal, crime will cease to exist, and the world will be filled with smiles. The world will adapt the old US Army promotion line of "be all that you can be." That's right. If you wake up today and want to be a turtle, you can be a turtle. Or a Princess, a doctor, an airplane, or a cow. Exciting huh? You will eat your bug soup and then place your virtual reality goggles on your head and start being what you want to be today. I can be Roy Rogers and Festus can be Tonto. We all will be happy and equal.
Oh, how society is going to be so surprised with this reality. Okay, I need to take my tin foil hat off and sing "We Are the World" three times consecutively and then get back in my box. Oh, also, remember, this was all pretend games Festus and I used to play. It's all a conspiracy because there is no way any levelheaded human would accept today as being normal. Yet, this giant conspiracy theory of truth is the set we are on. Where we go from here shall be determined by how serious we are in the true story being told and upheld. So, you may scratch your head at this point and ask "what on earth did I just dump on you?" Well, the truth is pretty much anything you believe to be reality is a conspiracy and anything that seems so far-fetched it is true. Something we all must realize and brace to understand is that many of these crazy changes around us may really only be new to us and not the underworld. In some cases it seems they are simply getting caught or else they are becoming brave enough to break out. Just look at it on the bright side, most of this crazy stuff we paid for through our tax dollars.
The good news is we know how this story ends. Amen.
It won't be long before we can start sowing seeds and starting our spring and summer gardens. Very soon we can start germinating seeds and putting together started seeds before they go in the ground just after our last frost or around that time. Some things we can plant just before the last frost dependent upon our location.
The last few years I have been showing different methodologies one could use to overcome space issues. I will again expand my space this year to show additional raised bed 8 x 8 boxes to equal 4 total. I also plan to grow potatoes using the potato boxes shared on here last year. If time permits we will also till up a space to grow corn.
Here's some information you may use in your garden planning and preparation.

And those are my thoughts for the week.
Preparedness News –
1. From Di-Anne Seebregts - The Homesteading Hippy - Easy Way of Dehydrating Beef Jerky in the Oven * The Homesteading Hippy - Here you go. Can you believe I know folks who will not eat beef jerky? You probably know a few also. My thoughts are it's just more for me. I can always count on beef and/or bear jerky as a gift each Christmas. Good stuff.
2. From Prep School Daily - Prep School Daily: The False Security of Seed Germination Tests - Would you be surprised if I told you many of your fellow preparers own at least two or more #10 cans of seeds? And, they don't know what to do with them once the can is open. That's right. Some folks can't even grow mold on bread which only takes time and zero effort.
3. From Tom Harkins - New Life on a Homestead - How To Forage and Use Greenbrier • New Life On A Homestead - This is an area we all need to expand our knowledge and ability to identify and use in our preparedness plans.
4. From Survival Mom - How I Organized My Emergency Supplies Closet For Quick, Easy Access - Survival Mom (thesurvivalmom.com) - One can pick from many different organizational styles and methods. One of our HFS Patriot families uses a color-coded tote system. I don't know about you, but it is easy to forget what you have and where you have it stored.
5. From Fergus Mason - Ask a Prepper - 6 Items To Stockpile For The Upcoming US Blackout - Ask a Prepper - Think about it, does it really matter how a blackout happens? Once we are in the black, the most important thing to us locally is are we prepared to generate some level of light. The cause and durations come next. So having resources available immediately is key.
Other News -
1. From J.B. Shurk - American Partisan - They've Dragged Us into Their Matrix - American Thinker - The Matrix we live in. What? All the government control, media lies and manipulations, television psychological programming, and the citizen psychosis to what happens next. In ways it is another form of the Q movement, right or wrong. The Jewish got manipulated by the German government and many of their citizens, and today, at a lesser level of controlled outcome, millions of citizens are being manipulated and controlled psychologically. (Thanks Festus for this submission)

This is a long read but well worth the time to see the consolidated information provided. Make sure to read the fine print down the side of the article as well. (Thanks Festus for this submission).
3. From Tim Gamble - Dystopian Survival - Dystopian Survival : Surviving A Long-Term Supply Chain Crisis - The author provides a fairly simple list of things you should be doing now to be prepared. As I have suggested before, create your own personal checklist for this occasion. Checklist are personal and should be drafted to meet your needs. Why personal? If I live in Florida and you are in North Dakota, our winter checklist will be different in some areas. Just a hint.
4. From Conan Miller - EPOCH Times - Insurance Companies Note 40% Rise in Deaths (theepochtimes.com) - This story has started to get traction. Several states are launching investigations to get further information on this topic. Why are so many 18–45-year-old citizens dying in America?
5. From Survival Blog Contributor - Survival Blog - The Next Two Years -- Turmoil Ahead. The ‘Defund the Police’ meme (survivalblog.com) - This seems to be in line with other projections and forecast for the next 24 months. I would caution all of us to be careful to not project (wish) for more than we desire simply because we want to use all our cool preparedness stuff. I worry many wishes for something they will not enjoy or understand.
6. From J.G. Collins - Epoch Times - For BlackRock, ‘Stakeholder Capitalism’ Should Reject Partisan Rent Seeking and China Subservience (theepochtimes.com) - As a fellow Patriot stated to me, "if a corporation could be the antichrist, BlackRock is it." I would easily agree. If not aware and educated, much of our society has been and will be crushed going forward. (Thanks PF for this submission)
That's all my Patriot brothers and sisters.
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.
The struggle with Covid-19 continues as several HFS families are going through the protocol to recovery. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. If you have been down this path you know it is not over when the protocol ends. We pray for your strength and quick recovery. Take care of yourself and focus on you through this process.
Please keep our Patriot brother and sister from North GA in your prayers while they deal with health issues. Also remember our Patriot brother in north Alabama in your prayers as he deals with health decisions and awaits a path forward. The parents of several HFS Patriots are dealing with Covid-19 now and prayers would be appreciated. We are thankful for the many who recovered from illnesses in the past month.
Even with all the worldly challenges, struggles, and heartbreaks we must always give thanks for the blessings in our own life and our family each day. Life can be hard and sometimes unfair to us, but we still have many things to be thankful for each day. We must not forget them.
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 need 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.
