Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #179

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #179. Thanks for joining us as we roll into September. Another month down and we are closer to winter and 2023. We are always happy to have you join us. I don't know if the tide is changing directions or not but I'm seeing more new locations pop up on the website. I hope this is a good sign of folks stocking their pantries and figuring out that something is wrong. Keep the pedal down fellow Patriots because it is not going to get better anytime soon. That is a hopeful message from me to you. What? Me being honest with you is the best I can do. No matter how the globe spins, you're still going to get thirsty and hungry.

One can say many things are wrong with the picture below. Being a 20-year military veteran the single thing that popped out to me first is the Marines and the position of their hands. We are taught three basic positions while standing in uniform. Attention, Parade Rest, and at ease. The position in the photograph is not one of these positions. The position in the photograph is more of an aggressive or conquer type of stance. Maybe I am missing something.

Many seemed alarmed by the message perceived from the President's message but or anyone paying attention should not be alarmed on any account. Yes, it was attention getting to hear the President speaking directly about another group of Americans expressing their 1st Amendment rights in opposition to the current administration's position in certain areas. I say this should not come as a surprise because Festus and I identified this pattern of attack over ten years ago when the Attorney General of the United States identified conservative veterans as the greatest domestic threat. Think about that one. The government sends these kids off to war with the expectation of them honoring their commitment to defend the homeland. They come home with war scars, and many are never the same and then get labeled a domestic terrorist. Why is the federal government so afraid of veterans? Many wounded veterans cannot get proper medical care yet the number one surgery performed in the Department of Defense today is gender change procedures. These are our tax dollars fellow Patriots.

I want you to think about something. The government is currently allowing a parent to come forward and volunteer their young son/daughter for gender surgery because little Johnny, at 5, decides for the day he likes playing with baby dolls and wear his sisters clothing. Instead of questioning the sanity of the parent, the current system is respecting the child's wishes. This is the same government and system which tells a parent they cannot have access to their juvenile daughters' medical records to see if she was given an abortion without their consent. The same government attempts to curtail, stop, and/or punish parents wishing to homeschool a child and keep them out of this demonic system. My wonder is why so many intelligent adults claiming to be parents are not seeing what is taking place when it involves their child. These same parents are in a church on Sundays and not hearing their pastors speaking about what is going on outside the walls of the church. A ship will lose its direction every time when everyone aboard is not rowing and paying attention to the direction of the vessel. Until "we the people" right this ship it will continue to be lost at sea. Our great nation needs a spiritual revival immediately. Even if you are a non-spiritual person, wouldn't you prefer sending your children to what once was a structured and moral based classroom vs one where your kid may come home saying "I told my teacher today I want to be a girl/boy?" It is that simple. Until citizens start acting locally in protest of the direction and stop eating popcorn and cussing it when the television shows little Johnny as Joanie, it is not going to change. Focus on what is important and destroying our families and nation and stop thinking someone else is going to do it for us. I digress.

Ms. Lucy and I took part in a local medicinal and edible plant weed walk last weekend and really enjoyed it much. The rain held off until the end, so it wasn't so bad to be wondering through the woods learning. We met up with another HFS Patriot family to enjoy the morning. We then took in a quick lunch afterwards to discuss what we learned and other preparedness topics of interest.

Later in the day the rains let up, so we took a boat ride on our local lake to enjoy the beauty of our area. Ms. Lucy had rented a boat as part of our anniversary weekend. We ended up crossing paths with four area HFS Patriots who also went for a boat ride. It was great seeing them and chatting for a couple hours while relaxing on the lake.

The next couple of weeks for us will be very demanding with road trips and multiple stops. I will do my best to keep everything on schedule, however, I can't predict unplanned for events and delays.
