Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #158

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #158. Thanks for stopping by to spend a few minutes with us. We hope you enjoyed a blessed week. Hard to believe April is halfway passed and May is quickly approaching. Soon gardens will be growing, kids out of school, and vacations maybe started. We see a day of sunshine and a day of ice pellets and snow in many regions. Through the transition each day, power goes on and off, heavy rain creates flooding, high winds may damage property or downed trees along a highway or expand localized brush fires into extreme hazardous conditions. Have you given thought to how these events of mother nature could impact your way of life?


It was another week of troubling news around the world and our great nation. Conflict, wars, and strife continue in Ukraine, the Middle East and the Pacific region. Nationally we learned the current rate of inflation passed 8 % with no signs of relief in sight. Yet, many continue on their happy way with no apparent concern of food and fuel cost to their family. Shortages are becoming more apparent in fertilizers, wheat and corn. Is it possible some folks are so detached they believe grocery chains pull as much as they want out of the back of a semi-truck with endless supplies?


It was another awesome week in HFS land. What a great week. There is something about being with Patriots that makes my day. I had a quick trip of 550 miles to Huntsville, AL last Friday for some daytime work and then a great meeting with the HFS Huntsville group. We had pizza and other goodies available while chatting on preparedness topics and then covering the upcoming HFS Alerting System. I then posed the question to the group, "what are you searching for?" So many preparers continue burning hours each day searching for answer to what is coming instead of building plans to be better prepared. I conducted a poll of 30 attendees by asking who in the group had documented a single plan for their preparedness package and three preparers raised a hand. If the leader of a family or group dies, how will the next person up continue to manage operations in a community or family if nothing is in writing? It was great to see my Alabama preparedness family again. I was able to get a few minutes of private time with our Patriot brother, Alabama Rebel, who is battling some major health issues. I spent extra time with the HFS Group leader after the event and on Saturday morning before departing for the Cumberland Plateau to visit the Crossville, TN group. I appreciate the hospitality of the HSV Group leader very much.


The visit to Crossville, TN was short but productive. Over lunch we had a great discussion on preparedness and possible changes to the current U.S. monetary system rumored to be starting soon. What should we do with our current investments and savings was the theme? We also discussed the emergent need for building the localized P.A.C.E plan for communicating during emergencies. When one doesn't have all the answers it is hard to prepare for the unknown. I appreciate Festus and the Crossville, TN team taking time out of their afternoon to spend visiting with me.


As much as I enjoy visiting all the regions and groups, time is never our friend because it passes quickly and then I must journey on home or the next stop.


We will celebrate Easter this weekend, so I hope each of you gets time to stop and reflect on the meaning of Easter. It is a day of celebration for our saviors rising from the tomb.



Okay, let us move along.


Thursday Zoom Rallies – HFS Zoom Rally #86 was conducted this week with a group exercise on setting up a Bug-Out location and identifying plans, positions, and resources required for immediate and short-term needs.

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 -


Scary movies - As a child, did you ever watch scary movies where certain scenes would make you close your eyes? Maybe you would run over and hide behind an adult? Scary shows and movies always had clues to alert you to something scary through the music used behind the camera and sometimes words. One of the things that always clues me in to something scary about to happen is when the old turntable is still spinning around and around, and the needle arm is at the end of the record. You heard this "whoosh....whoosh.....whoosh" sound as you carefully looked around the room to see who was hiding or maybe down or dead on the floor of the room in the movie. Amazing how the needle arm stuck in the same place could have so much power over a scene and lead to the eventual negative outcome.


What on earth does this story have to do with preparedness? It's pretty simple actually. I don't want to beat a dead horse over and over when it has no impact on me and my family. I have been talking on this topic for weeks and months now and I hope and pray it can help at least one person or family. For a long time I thought folks failed to prepare because of being asleep or in some level of psychological psychosis. I still believe this fully. But I'm growing more and more convinced people are simply lazy. In many cases this it not my opinion, it is my observation of events and responses. I am taking in to consideration financial capabilities and physical limitations due to age and injuries. The number of adults who appear incapable of thinking and doing on their own is growing. We would like to believe more responsible citizens are seeing the writing on the wall and preparing their families for rainy days ahead.


If a person is too lazy to make a binder and file electronic preparedness items in the binder for specific topics, or maybe even open a book and look through it for the topic, they certainly will not buy beans and/or rice and place in Mylar bags and store in 5-gallon tanks. This is not meant derogatory to these individuals. It is a point made to alert and warn others to be aware of these individuals who may be part of a family or a group. Wow, that could be construed as evil and mean. You bet, it is. These individuals are weights around the ankles. They are useless eaters to others. Ouch. Did it sting? I hope so.


As I often tell folks, my comments are not personal...they are business. Wake up now or pay the price later. If a person or family member is too lazy to assist another family preparer because they are used to having things done for them, they will be useless and a negative during a grid down situation. Fix it now. It will not get any better. I observe so many who think they are preppers and preparers because they listen to podcast and hang out on chat forums. They take notes. Pages of notes. Years of collecting pages of notes. But the reality is they are frozen and complete minimal steps to prepare. They are stuck in time and think they are preparing by watching and learning, but do nothing to prepare or even collect information for future information.


Preparing and being prepared is more than listening and reading. It is also more than simply buying canned goods and stocking them. This is a step better than doing nothing but being prepared is more than having food. It is more than stocking a few cases of store-bought water. If one does not understand risk management and mitigation and recognizing threats and changing situations, they will fail to mitigate where they are vulnerable. Preparing is taking steps to build plans to offset potential threats that will change a way of life. Stocking resources is the mitigation to threats. If we don't eat, it is a threat of starvation. The mitigation is having food to consume to prevent the threat of starvation. Stocking water and filters to cleanse the water is the mitigation to losing city water and then having to collect water from streams, lakes, rivers, and mud puddles. These people will fail to recognize the mitigation to a community collapse is to bug-out or fortify their community.


If these same people are not taking steps now, when it's time to use the resources available these folks will be caught in a web they can't escape. It will become a scary movie they play a feature role with no control of the ending. No matter how many times I point this out, offer guidance on topics to prepare individuals or families, a percentage of the recipients ignore guidance and continue investing time they could be preparing, for fear porn podcast that scares them stiff. Then, they want to talk about their faith and religion. I do believe this sequence is backwards because if a person s a follower and believer of the Bible, Jesus Christ, and scripture, they would have no fear and avoid things around their life that opens the cracks for evil attacks on their mind and soul. God does not grant a blanketed ticket where He covers everything. Do you expect God to fill the flat tire in your trunk with air? Do you expect God to go grocery shop for you? Does God answer the door bell when it rings? Furthermore, if someone is lazy and does nothing, why should God fill the void for laziness?


1 Timothy 5: 8 “But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.”


Proverbs 30: 24-25Even the Animals & Insects Make Preparation for the Future – “Four things on earth are small, yet they are extremely wise: Ants are creatures of little strength, yet they store up their food in the summer”


The boat is pulling out from the dock full of prepared people. When things end up going kerplunk, they will be standing flat footed, terrified, and lost amongst the many who also failed to see the tidal wave approaching daily. I hate to think of how many are going to be left behind when they had the chance to prepare and ahead of 90% of the population. A failed system and society will not be the cause of their failure. Their own lack of effort will be the cause of their failure.


Next ....


Hygiene - It's IMPORTANT!!! Do not ignore or overlook the need for sanitation and hygiene care individually and around others. I know, I know, deodorant allows the bears to smell you coming. Good hygiene is not only needed for those around you, but also good for your own care and moral. Put another way, poor hygiene will lead to bigger problems that you or your community may not be able to handle.


As a leader of your family and if you are the leader of your community group where several families are housed together, you may be the one needing to approach a friend or stranger to address their lack of hygiene. Do not ignore it and let it cause eventual health issues and/or degrade moral amongst your people.


We can make a long list of basic needs for hygiene, however, here are a few items you should consider at a minimum. In some ways, hygiene is like moral, when it starts to fail it is critical to get it turned around quickly or bigger problems loom over the hillside. It is important to know and understand more than how to apply deodorant or brush teeth. What will you do when a hygiene problem is past the basic recovery point? Will you recognize the problem and know how to address it?


Here's some basic items to get you started:

Baby Wipes Baking Soda Comb, Brush, and Scissors

Water Checklist:


Minimum: 1 gallon of water per day per person. Total family members ___ x 1 = ___ x by ___ months supply = ___ lbs


NOTE: Recommend 2-3 gallons per day, per person, when possible. Available water at home may vary from when mobile.


Water (Sources: Tap, Well, Lake/Stream/Creek/Spring, Rain Barrels…) Location


Purification:

1st Water Purification Method


Large capacity Water Purification Method (extra components as needed): _______________

- Boiling. This is a reliable way to purify water

- Use of Iodine solution, tablets or crystals. This is an effective and more convenient method. ...

- Use chlorine drops. Chlorine has the ability to kill bacteria in water. ...

- Use water filter. ...

- Use Ultraviolet Light.


2nd Water Purification Method

(Water distiller): Berkey, NOAH Trecker….

The process of distilling is simple. Heat tap water to the point that it turns to vapor. When the vapor condenses back to water, it leaves behind any mineral residue. The resulting condensed liquid is distilled water.


3rd Water Purification Method

(bleach):


Bring the water to a rolling boil for at least one full minute. Let the water cool before drinking. Add two drops of household bleach per gallon to maintain water quality while in storage.


4th Water Cleansing Method

(Using charcoal, sand, and rocks.)


How do you filter water with charcoal sand and gravel? Add an inch of activated charcoal as the second layer on top of the cotton layer. Over the charcoal, add about two inches of gravel or small stones as the third layer. Add about three to four inches of clean sand on top of the gravel. Add gravel to the bottle as the final layer.


Water storage methods

- Bathtub Liners

- Knowledge to drain and capture water from hot water heater(s)

- Rain Barrell System (gutters, roof, sheds, barns, greenhouse….)

- Tanks, barrels, totes, sinks, pots and pans…

- Milk, tea, and beverage bottles

- Canteens and Camel Bak

- Water Siphons

- Life Straws (Back Packs, Day Bags and Bug-Out-Bags):

- Method to move water; cart, buggy, labor, hoses, pumps

- Spare Parts for any and all methods being used


Finding Water:


The most obvious sources are streams, rivers and lakes. Animals always know where the water is, so be on the lookout for wildlife or animal tracks. Lush green vegetation is also a sign that water is nearby. Swarming insects may be a hassle, but they also signal that a water source isn't far away.


Natural Spring: Trace springs back from streams and ponds to find their source. Use a topographical map or personally survey the land to determine points where a spring may emerge. Springs are naturally occurring sources of water that originate underground and flow to the surface. A good rule to follow, especially when time is minimal for locating and cleansing safe water, if the water isn't moving and/or you see no life forms in the water, it is unsafe in almost all cases.

Additional Water Sources to Consider:


- Cucumber, 96% water

- Tomatoes, 95% water

- Spinach 94% water

- Broccoli 90% water

- Brussel Sprouts 88% water

- Oranges 86 water

- Apples 85% water



·Wild Plants Used for Hydration:


- Melons of any kind are quite helpful in situations

- Squash

- Cacti

- Berries

- Dandelion

- Vines

Tips for storing water in a container after cleaning and sanitizing:

·

- Label container as “drinking water” and include storage date.

·- Replace stored water every six months.

·- Keep stored water in a place with a fairly constant cool temperature (50–70°F).

·- Do not store water containers in direct sunlight.

·

Bottled water safety

(Store purchased and home stored)


I know many folks who purchase and store cases of bottled water for part of their water plan. This is key information to consider. Though water itself doesn't expire, bottled water often has an expiration date. ... This is because plastic can begin to leach into the water over time, contaminating it with chemicals, such as antimony and bisphenol A (BPA) (5 , 6 , 7 ).


Best Water Storage Container to Consider:


You'll need a safe container in which to store it. The general guideline is to use food-grade plastic bottles. You can also use glass bottles so long as they haven't stored non-food items. Stainless steel is another option, but you won't be able to treat your stored water with chlorine, as it corrodes steel.


If lost in the woods, how do I find water?


Start digging. Anywhere you see dampness on the ground or green vegetation, dig a large hole a few feet deep, and you'll likely get water seeping in. The same is true at the feet of cliffs, in dry river beds, at the first depression behind the first sand dune of dry desert lakes, and in valleys/low areas


If lost in the wild, what should you do?


The first thing you should do if you're stranded in the wild is find a source of drinkable water. The most obvious sources are streams, rivers and lakes. Animals always know where the water is, so be on the lookout for wildlife or animal tracks. Lush green vegetation is also a sign that water is nearby.


If lost in the wild/woods and you have no methods to sanitize water, you can use dirt as a method. When water passes through soil, it is cleaned via physical, chemical and biological processes. In addition to soil's physical filtration capacity, soil contains important biota that helps transform and decompose certain chemicals and other contaminants from soil, thus helping filter them out of the water.


NOTE: Like with all other preparedness planning, water is the key essential resource to keep you alive. You should highly consider multiple water sources and methods to have available at all times. “One is none, two is one, three is better.”


And those are my thoughts for the week.


Preparedness News


1. From Linda Loosli - Food Storage Moms - Lessons I Learned From Food Storage - Food Storage Moms - Many in America never experienced a point in life where food was limited in a household. We have been blessed over our life time with sufficient supplies amongst most American homes. So to imagine not having enough food to provide for a family is just a imaginary thing. I do believe this impacts the individual motivation to prepare a food plan that is sufficient to sustain normal conditions. We often see starving humans on television commercials asking for financial support to feed the hungry. That is different from planning to feed your own family. I always hear, "I will run to the corner market and buy what is needed as it is needed. This is not a plan to prevent hunger in a community or home.


2. From Michael Snyder - The Economic Collapse - The Earth Only Has A 3 Month Supply Of Food - If Production Stops Humanity Has Nothing To Eat "In 90 Days" (theeconomiccollapseblog.com) - If a person puts in time and effort to research how the global food production has changed over the past 40 years they would see how many farms are no longer producing food, especially inside America. Remember Willie Nelson and Farm Aid in the 1980s? How about the Michael Jackson hit song and movement titled "We are the World, We are the Children?" The global population is increasing while the ability to produce food and make it available has decreased. Maybe the question at this point should be, "why?"


3. From Survival Mom - Safety For Women: Useful Tips Must Know - Survival Mom (thesurvivalmom.com) - This article offers some sound advice for ladies to consider in their personal protection plan. Especially as times move toward the unknown and laws now protecting guilty predators.


4. From Adrienne - Whole New Mom - 27 Easy Dirt Cheap Tips for Gardening on a Budget | Whole New Mom - Preparing can be costly and for many on limited income or a strict budget, it should always be a common practice to search for better ways of doing business to obtain needed preparedness resources.


5. From Simple Family Preparedness - How to Make an Important Documents Binder (Free Printables) (simplefamilypreparedness.com) - Preparing a family binder with preparedness plans is one of the most important steps you take. If you are not available or should die, who in your family can step in to continue your plans? The HFS Digital Football Memory Stick was designed to help assist you. Having a printable binder is important and having a back up is also important. If you have to flee your home at 3 AM and forget all your critical documents you can have it all backed up on the HFS Digital Football Stick. If you are wiped out by a home fire, are you prepared to pull out the documents needed for your banking? Savings? Deeds? Titles? Death Certificates? Property ownership?


6. From Unruly Gardening - Differences Between Henbit and Purple Dead Nettle - Unruly Gardening - Ms. Lucy has introduced Dead Nettle to our routine and with a squirt of lemon the hot tea was excellent I must say. And, it worked. I was having some kidney stone pains and I did not want to take a prescription pain medicine so she made up the tea. Check it out if you have access to it.


Other News -


1. From Janis Siegel - Epoch Times - Nanotechnology Used in Covid Vaccines, 2,000 Foods, Goes Unlabeled (theepochtimes.com) - Why should anyone be surprised. A really smart man once told me "the only thing you should buy in a grocery market is typically located along the outer walls of the market." Think about that. Produce, dairy, meats and poultry, and fruit are typically on the outer wall. (Thanks Festus for this submission)


2. From Martin Armstrong - Armstrong Economics - Why Zelensky is a Neo-Nazi & a Jewish FRAUD | Armstrong Economics - Excellent article. I know a few will want to throw rocks at me but that's okay. Step back and stay neutral. Look at the big picture and history of the situation. Yes, both sides show historical evil against their people. The situation in Ukraine is terrible for the people. Like most wars, it is the people who suffer the most, not the high authorities creating the war.


3. From Tyler Durden - Zero Hedge - Finland Set For NATO Entry As Soon As Summer - Russian Official Warns "Destruction Of Their Country" Coming | ZeroHedge - I am hearing and reading this topic more often than 30 days ago.


4. From Samuel Mangold-Lenett - Blaze Media - Russia has begun a 'selective default' on foreign debts as it attempts to pay in rubles - Conservative Review - Is this the first big test for Russia and their demand to operate using the Ruble?


5. From Isabel Vincent - New York Post - $54M in Chinese gifts donated to UPenn, home of Biden Center (nypost.com) - The game of Jack-in-box continues. Instead of where is Waldo, we have who is hiding the money. And if we find out, what will happen? My guess is on nothing. The law writing guilty continue to smile and do no right while the rest of us watch and wonder.


6. From Dr. Craig von Buseck - Inspiration Ministries- New Barna Poll Shows Continued Decline of Bible Belief in America (inspiration.org) - The numbers from these polls are attention grabbing and in a few cases staggering. Could the decline in youth and young teens continuing their walk in faith be a result of another poll a year or so ago where more than 50% of our current preachers fill the pulpit because it is a job and they do not believe in the Bible? When evil finds cracks in the church armor Satan attacks. Always assuming a church is spiritually healthy is walking in blind faith.


Drum roll...........


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.


We must pray for each other and pray that our faith and strength in our faith keeps us on the right path through all the evils and evils powers around us at this time. We all must uplift one another 24 x 7.


We pray for the nation of Ukraine, and all involved in the conflict with Russia. We pray for peace and a quick resolution for all involved.


Please keep a few of our HFS members in your prayers. We have several with physical needs in North Alabama, Central Alabama, Huntsville, AL, and Hickory, NC needing prayers for MRI results and a clear direction for proceeding with care.


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.


Blessings,


Bravo Echo Out,
