Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #172

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #172. Good to have you with us. HFS appreciates you and your time. Each week we bring new members to Hope for Survival in some aspect and together we must prepare for what is ahead of us. It would be easy to come here each week and turn this platform in to a soap box for complaining about all the bad news, but we try to void much of it and focus on what is important.

Before we get into this week's PENL I need to take care of some serious business upfront so

stick with me, okay? Last week I shared how I like Libby's sausage gravy over hotdogs when Ms. Lucy goes out of town. Typically, when she is away, I work 16–18-hour days so I am looking for a very healthy meal that I can prepare quickly with low maintenance. Well, one of our Patriot brothers messaged me to tell me he put sausage gravy, slaw, and hot dogs on the shopping list for the dogs. Then a few days later I get a picture of their dinner for the evening, and they took the plunge and tried out the sausage gravy on their hotdogs topped with slaw. They loved it. Are we possibly starting a FAD here? Maybe our own survival meal? We could call it a Hope dog instead of a hot dog. Oh, FAD stands for Freaking Awesome Dinner. (Description from our Patriot family)

On a brighter note, Christians are coming out of the forest asking for help getting prepared. Thats right, folks are seeing the writing on the wall. Things are bad and getting worse. Church doors are opening and fellow HFS Patriots are walking through doors to share scripture-based preparedness lessons. Please keep these Patriots in your prayers.

Okay, let us move along.

Huntsville, AL Visit - I will be visiting Huntsville, AL and stopping by Logans Roadhouse at 6226 University DR. NW, Monday, July 25th, 2022, at 530 pm CST. It is near a Wal Mart and across the highway from a Target Super Center. Don't confuse it with Texas Roadhouse. If you are free and want to stop by to chat preparedness, come join us. I will reserve the backroom to afford us more privacy. Hope you can make it out. It's always good to get back to Huntsville and see HFS family. Steaks. Ribs. Spirits. Logan's Roadhouse (

Thursday Zoom Special Event – HFS Zoom Rally #91 was held on July 21, 2022, and the group worked on "what would you do" type scenarios. These events primarily focused on personal defense in an active shooter event. We also discussed Risk Management steps and identifying priorities based on posed events. Thanks to those who attended.

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 - Relax. Pull up a chair and let me share some thoughts with you about my amazing week. If you see a typo or lost comma, forgive me but I'm focused more on telling you the truth.

Lions, Tigers, and Bears - Oh my, I'm having a brain gush moment here where my brain is flowing with thoughts and wonders like chocolate flowing in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Do you ever get these moments and try to write down and remember all the thoughts bouncing around like a gerbil in a cage?

The picture of the future keeps getting brighter as I recognize pieces of the past. Last week I wrote about 911, the Patriot Act, the Cheney's and the ongoing Jan 6 hearings taking place, I shared how events and new policies post 911 to protect us from Islamic terrorism is impacting the Patriot movement today. Crazy huh? How on earth could the government that the world follows and looks up to for leadership and guidance now be the government implementing laws and policies against its own people that our great nation fought against for years around the world?

Does anyone else find it odd the act of 2001is titled with the same title of an act being used against Patriotic Americans today? The Patriot Act brought about sweeping powers for federal agencies to combat terrorism post 911. Remember, every time we turned on the television, we heard Islamic terrorism on every channel. It was the platform used by then President George W. Bush for his reelection.
