Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #186

Updated: Oct 29, 2022

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #186. We appreciate you stopping by to spend some of your valuable time with us as we roll into November. I want to welcome our new readers from Ohio to HFS. Make yourself at home and if you have any questions, please email me. I'm anxious to meet all of you in NC next weekend at the HFS Rally. Everyone please drive safe to the event.

I will be in Huntsville, AL midweek and then down to NC Friday through Sunday at the HFS rally. I will do my best to get another PENL posted on time Friday evening at some point. I'm so excited to see the HFS family together on Saturday and I also get to see and spend time with two of my favorite Patriots who own and operate Carolina Readiness Supply in Waynesville, NC. I hope everyone attending the rally will take time to travel one block up from the rally location to see Ms. Jan and Mr. Bill. It will be worth your time. I promise.

I had to make a short notice quick trip to Huntsville, AL this week and I had the pleasure of having dinner with two Patriots. I rarely get to spend one on one time with special family so this was great. Thanks for spending your evening with me. It's always special. I was in Huntsville to do some work and take part in a retirement for a very special friend who is heading into retirement after a 20-year career in the United States Marines and another 15 years as a government employ. It was truly an honor working with such a Patriotic American who loves our country like us.

I will be heading to the TN Cumberland Plateau in the morning to spend time with the one and only, no other like him, Mr. Festus himself. I have been so busy in 2022 my changes to cross paths in person with him has been limited. I hope to sneak in and out and avoid history being changed from our get together. I can say without a doubt, when I depart heading home my brain will be fried from too much thinking. My life is blessed with so many awesome people and I'm thankful to God for each and every one of them.

Ms. Lucy and I got to spend time with four HFS Patriots after church last Sunday and it was great to see them again. I always enjoy our conversations and to hear their perspective on the world today. More eyes and ears on the ground is more intelligence to process. This is great to help in processing information for our community. Do you have likeminded friends you meet with to balance your day and get additional information on topics of interest.

Something wacked me in between the eyes this week and I'm a little baffled by it. I knew it before but didn't give it a lot of thought until now. Have you given much thought to why the jab was encouraged and almost deemed mandatory to breath and live in the United States, yet it was not the same in Russia or China? Why could that be? Aside from making the big Pharma companies rich and others owning stock in them, knowing now what we believed as a conspiracy then, what would be the point? Just saying.... Another thing, doesn't it seem rather interesting that we spend hundreds of billions of dollars on defense annually and we end a 20-year war in Afghanistan by fleeing and leaving several billion dollars in equipment behind and roll right into another global conflict in Ukraine by spending billions more on the new supposed threat to the world. Much of the money for Ukraine is going to US Defense Companies to build weapons for Ukraine. Why is no elected politician speaking about the debt compared to the billions going to defense? Just wondering. Another thing, did you know the millions of dollars spent on art and pictures in the thousands of government facilities depicting our history that clashes with the woke agenda is being pulled off the walls and retired. Our history, good or bad, is being rewritten. First it was anything related to the Bible in the workplace and now our history.

Elon Musk is probably the greatest successful inventor in the past 20 years with several futuristic inventions. He just purchased Twitter and now the US Government is saying he must be investigated because of Starlink. From the outside looking in, does it not appear someone doesn't want Musk to discover more about what is going on from the inside? It is possible Musk Space Program could achieve reaching Mars before any government. Is there possibly something on Mars they do not want him to see or discover? Why is the federal government converting to a one for one supply system that is used by Wal Mart currently? This means for everyone sold, there is not a backup replacement available until the supply system ships and the product is shipped and stocked? Have you ever called a store asking if they had a product, and they tell you they have one left? If five want it in the same day, four will go without. Where will the four people find the product? Think global survivability and Agenda 2030. Fuel, medicinal, food, auto parts and on and on. Get prepared. If you are a child of God, you will be sustained. Oh, are you familiar with saltwater intrusion? Do you realize saltwater is invading much of America and it is killing trees and crops today. We have saltwater taking the place of potable water across America. Shall we continue? Ahh, let's save some for next week.

Let us move along....
