Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #198

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #198. Thanks for your time and support to HFS. This approach to edition #200 is getting so exciting. It is like watching the ball drop in NY City approaching midnight. Okay, maybe not that exciting. Think of it like this, each PENL creation is about 30,000 characters or 5,000 to 7,500 words. That is weekly. So roughly 30,000 words per month which is roughly six books per year.

It was great to the Cumberland Plateau last weekend to spend time with Festus and Ms. Festus accompanied by some biscuits and gravy, eggs, sausage, bacon, and baked fish. Have you ever had baked fish for breakfast with gravy? Oh, my goodness. You should try it. We then attended a function where I was teaching a class which was an overview to Hope for Survival. The best part was meeting lots of new Patriots and wonderful people. It was also great to see 10 HFS supporters in the group attending. Time is never my friend at these events, and I never get the quality time to have solid conversations with HFS sisters and brothers, as well as new friends. We finished the day off by having dinner with Festus and our HFS Family from Monticello, KY who drove down for the event. Sometimes I believe I'm the luckiest guy on earth to be surrounded by so many Patriots who add so much to my life. Thank you all.

Ms. Lucy and I had a dinner engagement with two dear Patriots in our neighborhood on Monday evening. Great food, great friendship, and blessed sister and brotherhood. Sometimes it is nice to stop and just block everything out and enjoy the moment together. Do you ever do this for yourself? It is always nice to not feel rushed and have discussions back and forth to share and learn on the topic. We certainly appreciate this opportunity and wonderful hospitality.

I don't know if you are noticing how the media focuses on some things while the bigger things are being ignored. Yea, the law was broken in Uncle Joe's mishandling of our nation's secrets. Yep, this is a big deal indeed. Many citizens previously went to jail for less mishandling infractions. Ever notice how those in uniform are punished to the fullest and serve time but government servants and elected officials are cuddled and swaddled like a five-year-old? I know the rules, practices and laws because in my former life I was recognized as the best program manager in the United States Air Force for protecting classified information and systems.

Accountability does not exist. Just like the billions of U.S tax dollars being shipped to Ukraine along with weapon systems and munitions from our national reserves to protect the homeland. When they are gone maybe the U.S. can borrow some supplies from China? We seem to be in bed with them huh. We have been a nation at war for roughly 23 years and now we are spending billions to develop a space force. Are we out of nations to build democracy and keep the military industrial complex afloat so now we must keep it functioning by continuing to build space platforms? Our nations morality and direction has changed for the bad and no one seems to notice or care. When parents rebel and fight back against the public schools for their crazy policies and then hiding or denying the truth of the failures, parents are labeled and harassed. When will we the people decide enough is enough and demand accountability and justice?

This war could quickly escalate throughout Europe and the Middle East. Keep your eyes and ears focused.

Hey, Festus gifted me an exceptional book titled. Hidden Lies of Banking by Richard Proctor, PhD, Provost Institute. Outstanding and a good read. Check it out. Dr. Proctor appeared on HFS Thursday evening zoom several months ago to talk about another fantastic book he authored titled Saving the Constitution. He then taught a special class for us on the same book. If you want an honest dose of truth serum, this is the author and books for you. Thanks, Festus, for turning me on this read.

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 -

Fake, Fickle, or an illusion: Several years ago, Ms. Lucy and I started searching for a church to attend upon arriving to Huntsville, AL. We had not selected the eventual church we would call home for our spiritual wellbeing. One church we visited we found a homeless man resting on the ground against a pole in the church parking lot. We observed several church members walking by the man by steering clear of him and walking wide to his location. He was older with long hair, a scruffy beard, and dirty clothing. He gazed at the church goers passing by as they purposely refused eye contact with the man.

After entering the church and taking a seat we waited on the service to start. After a few songs by the choir, the scruffy homeless undesirable man walked on to the platform at the front of the church. He started to take off a hat, wig, beard, dirty clothing, and his eventual attire was that of the preacher of the church. He kindly shared what he witnessed from his congregation entering the church. It was not pretty to put it mildly.

Why am I sharing this with you?

I have been sharing my thoughts on what I believe to be the coming divide amongst churches. It is already happening now. I know many devout Christians who are leaving churches, have already left churches, and others who are questioning church leadership because they are not talking about what is happening in our nation and/or preparing churches for what appears ahead. More importantly the church leaders are not teaching from the Bible. I'm sure they all have their reasoning and much of it may not be known. But, as the citizens become wiser and start asking questions to church leadership, why aren't leaders then talking to their flock about it? It is not a question of members not being faithful to scripture and keeping allegiance to a church.

Many churches over the past years and today, offer food banks for their community. This is for church goers and community members who do not attend the specific church. Some set up specific drop off and pick up points on a specific day for folks to come get food. Other churches place bo
