Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #214

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #214. Thank you for being here for another edition of the PENL. I'm truly starting to feel like a broken record. Welcome...more bad news. Welcome again...more bad news. Welcome again.....yes, more bad news. Things are not getting better on any account. Nothing. We, as a nation, are witnessing total collapses in human leadership inabilities or the purposeful enforcement to collapse our nation.

I was in Huntsville, AL all week so getting this together to post on time has been difficult in ways. Mainly because of other commitments I am obligated to do and also because my brain has been in some kind of washing machine mode...swish, swish, swish, spin what. What I am saying is I've had lots of thoughts and right now they are between my thought processor and understanding the thoughts and how to relay them in writing to you. Maybe by next week.

HFS shares many thoughts on topics, training, things needed, plans, risk management and the works. We spent the first month of the HFS Zoom sessions back in 2020 talking about the importance of leadership. Now, three years later, I am more convinced now, leadership is going to be the make or breaking point to many surviving or not surviving. Some people are born leaders while others are learned leaders. We all must decide, if and when the time comes, can I and will I step up to lead. I have witnessed some of the most colossal failures of leadership at a very high level and at a time everyone was looking for the person to make key decisions potentially risking human life if the wrong decision was made. Leaders surrounded by subject matter experts who are paid lots of money daily to train and be ready on a moment's notice to step up and advise leadership on actions to take or give information to allow the leader to make sound decisions. Some leaders will totally ignore people and even when advised he was making a bad decision, the leader again ignored subject matter experts.

I'm saying this because not all individuals assigned to positions of leadership are in fact leaders. Simply look at our nation and percentage of our populace who do not think on their own and depend on someone else to direct and guide them. Do you honestly believe good leadership got our nation to the point we are today? Please, don't point fingers and blame this party or that party. Both parties held majority control at some point in the last 30 years.

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

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, okay, wake me up.... I'm convinced the world has gone bonkers. Adults are losing their God given brains. Evil has taken over this earthly place we call America. Where are all the men? Where are all the adults, parents or not, who are in Washington state watching the safety of children being swept from the home and captured by the state government. This week, Gov. Jay Inslee signed into state law a bill which allows the state government to come into a home against a parent's desire and will and take a child or children who express desires to seek medical guidance or gender altering care and treatments, to include surgery I do believe. Are you getting this? What's next and who's next?

Didn't someone in the government make a statement about two years ago that said, "those aren't your children, you just take care of them."

More thoughts.....

In weekly research the past few weeks I'm finding a lot of the theme the same. Negative and people are still doing the same things. Are we immune to negatives so much we now accept them as part of our daily way of life? Same thing, different day. This equals a populace kidnapped by psychological psychosis and normalcy bias amongst millions of good people. Preparedness means zilch if the person is mentally kidnapped by a negative system creating stress and a loss of focus. If this is you, get your vehicle off the blocks and let your tires grip the ground and move forward before it's too late.

This can apply in our churches as well. I know good hearted faithful people who will spend all day telling me how wonderful their church is and they are blessed with a great God-fearing pastor. Really? I ask, "what is your church doing to inform the flock of what is happening outside the walls of the church, and how does the church plan to take care of their flock when the shelves are empty, and people are hungry." I have been told on one or more occasions, "nothing, it's not our place to feed the people."

I know some will say I'm being negative and taking away their hope. Let me rephrase what I just said. I'm being honest with you and if your tender skin is running from the truth and it causes you to lose hope, that is not on me. If your skin is so fragile now to get a heads-up warning of what is coming, then your future of surviving this mess is not good. Now is the time to toughen up and start facing some truths.

This is what I wrote a year ago.

I-S-D-M - "It Still Doesn't Matter" and for some you may hear "it still don't matter." Regardless how you hear it the meaning remains the same. I-D-M is possibly the single most pointed out item for Hope for Survival over the past year. Yep, I have chapped my fair share of backsides and attitudes with the I-D-M statement. But it's true and it can't be proved wrong. It is no skin off my elbows either way and I'm simply trying to help others learn, understand and prepare. If someone is trapped on the roof of their flooded house and a helicopter flies over offering them rescue, and they pass it up waiting for a boat, they probably haven't figured it out yet.

No matter what is said or offered some people look at me and they are on another planet. You can see it in their eyes. Heck, in the middle of my statement they interrupt me with another topic unrelated to the point I was making. I swear they are on Planet Lost through the entire conversation. To keep this simple, I am offering them a boat engine to go against the tide, yet they are convinced using their hands as boat oars is better.

What you believe and what you choose to do is a personal choice. The question is how much time do you have to get it together? Sometimes I think to myself that people are living like a racehorse with partial blinders on. They have limited vision and they see and hear what they want. Just like my pastor said on Sunday, "if you preach the Bible you are going to offend someone." That is a fact. And I feel the same way at times sharing my thoughts on preparedness based on lessons learned from my past life and things I experienced and witnessed. I can run furiously across the field yelling "the buffaloes are coming, run." A few would run and a few would stand still trying to figure out if buffaloes are really approaching or dd, I hire a tympani player to stand beyond the ridge and give a long tympani cadence to sound like a charging herd.

It is this simple. You can be the steppingstone for yourself, family, and community, or you can be the stumbling stone who ignored and failed those who love you and look up to you. What will your choice be? I could revert to my former military self and yell "get off your duff and get your stuff together now. You are right, that would not work, and it is different when talking to civilian's vs military. I can only offer my opinion and I do. Even when I state I know something to be the case or fact, if it doesn't fit the big screen narrative, folks just smile and move on.

I could state for a week the jungle is on fire and move quickly and people will grab their phones and run towards the fire to film it to put on social media. Get that? They have to see it. They need to see it. They want to see it. A fear porn podcaster can tell them the planet is upside down and instead of putting on their seat belt they stand on their head and wait for part two the next day.

Here is the thing. people are spending and wasting valuable time on things that just don't matter. I have beaten this topic like a dirty rug hanging in the Mojave Desert. I could simply stop and just move on and let those hanging in Epstein style do so. If people wish to follow this fad or that fad that turns out to be another wish on no return, they are investing in lottery odds. I have suggested repeatedly for preparers to invest their money in preparedness and not lottery tickets with no return.

Do you realize readers get mad at me for telling them the truth on things they do not wish to hear? I'm not pointing this out to criticize people and I'm not laughing at them. I'm the ranger in the park yelling "fire, fire, fire" to the boys at the table playing cards. The fire burns hotter and gets closer and the boys continue their card game. What matters most? The approaching fire or the card game? How can grown educated adults believe Elvis is still alive, the former President is really married to Princess Di who is still alive, half the Democratic Party is locked up at Gitmo and the other half got executed. It's doesn't matter. Shall I continue? The military is planning a revolt and will take control of the White House and the former President will regain power. Hillary Clinton is also being held at Gitmo and a body double is being used for her appearances in public. doesn't matter. People will tell you the Bible is nonsense yet believe the voice of a person they have never met who is selling them hope based on an unnamed inside sources who parades nonsense. Yes, it is easy to believe, and even easier because 150,000 other people listen to the same information and gobble it up. When all the local stores are out of food and your family crying because of hunger, are you going to run around town explaining to food vendors you need food, or a story you heard on a podcast relating to dwarf giraffes taking over Saudi Arabia?

We are living in a world where it seems people will find any reason to bring down another person. We are living in a society where we praise and warship high school and college athletes more than students working to become brain surgeons and bridge builders. We have a government wanting to wipe out the college debt of many while leaving critical thinking skills in debt for years. What is wrong with our nation and the world? If the indebted college educated doctor voices opposition to the college dropout football player who goes pro after two years of college with millions of dollars already in their pockets, the debt loaded doctors are titled racist for not understanding what a college jock goes through. Let me put it another way. College football playing jocks are weighted down from the millions of dollars in their pockets and are rushed to the hospital for a head injury that requires brain surgery to be performed by the debt loaded doctor. Think about that. Parents are losing control of their children to skill systems, drag queens who are parading as guest in churches, our nation has more debt than common sense, and people tell me nothing is wrong, it will all work out.

The Federal Government, both parties, tells us we need to tackle the nations poverty so the poor can be somewhat equal. Really? I don't think many would argue the point with taking care of our people. But when the government rewards bad behavior and pays non-residents more in monthly income than hard working Americans trying to survive, then we have a problem, and it is getting worse. Almost everywhere we travel we find "always hiring" signs all over the place. In our small community a person waits 30 minutes to one hour for seating. No, not because they are busy. Half the place is empty. They don't have full staffs to seat people at every table. Managers continually state workers no longer worker because the government pays them more to stay home. Why? Yet, even people who recognize and talk about this will tell you there is no problem and things will be fine.

Our world is upside down because the things that should have mattered the past 50 years didn't matter while we spent time living life and believing someone else took care of what mattered. Now that its upside down, many now believes the world will be fixed by a magic rabbit popping out of a hat. Abracadabra type stuff.

Now, let me ask you a question. If people are smart enough to figure out all these things are wrong and it is bad enough to require a rabbit to pop out of a hat and fix it, then why would the same person not recognize they better get their act together and stop focusing on all the things that doesn't matter? I am convinced a large number of alternative news listeners thrive on fear porn. Building a preparedness plan is boring and takes effort. How much is your family worth to you? I don't make predictions, but I can tell you all the negatives surrounding us are worth taking note of and not doing anything about it to protect your family is foolish.

When you are making out your daily schedule, make sure you place the letters I-D-M at the top of each day and apply it to each hour. How are you spending your time that matters or doesn't matter? Faith, family and friends, and community.

That was a year ago.

Something different now is many citizens are waking up and coming from the cities for help in learning how to prepare. That says to me, a little late but they get it. This is a good thing, right? The bad part of this story is many who started preparing months and years ago are mentally kidnapped and still believe in fairy dust and a magical rabbit that a source told a podcaster is going to pop out of a hat to take over the country and make it all right?

Sadly, our nation is a bankrupt morally corrupt nation that has no intentions of fixing itself and only shows more signs of a continued path to self-destruction. The question remains, how will you survive through the coming collapse?

Defensive Landscape Bushes or Plants to Consider

Every home has different features, however building and designing a security concept of a defense in depth posture keeping the five D's of security in mind is normally included. Oh, that would be Deter, Detect, Deny, Delay, and Defend. If you are in the process of designing a layered security posture using defense in depth, have you considered the use of plants, trees or bushes as a layer of security in your plan? It is something you may wish to think about. They are not just a great barrier to slow or stop a threat, they are also cosmetically appealing in most cases. You could also consider adding these on to an existing plan as well. They are great for approach routes you are trying to close or cut off. By placing these plants under a window or deck can also help block or slow down an intruder. And of course around your perimeter. If you are trying to stop an intruder from crossing your fence, the placement of a good barberry bush outside the fence could change the mind of the potential threat. When planning, you should also take in to consideration what hardiness zone you will be planting and growing the plant. Different regions for different plants.

When using bushes and plants as security features please be considerate to family and neighborhood children, pets, animals, and those who run towards the fire instead of away from it. Just saying.

Here's different plants to consider if you are building your security plans.

1. Agave:- Native to Mexico and the southwestern US, this spiky slow-growing succulent is suitable for growers in USDA Hardiness Zones 8-11.You can find different types of Agave plants in the Agave family. Different sizes and heights to support your security planning needs and wants. The location you plan to place the plant should help you decide which in the Agave family you decide to use. If you have children or pets you may wish to take this in to consideration as to what you get and how and where you plan to place it. Americana Agave

The agave is one of the most notorious landscape agaves. It produces a lovely inflorescence (flower) and then the main plant dies, leaving behind pups or offsets. The American agave or American aloe, as it is also called, has a white stripe running down the center of the leaves. It is a warm season agave only. A person selecting the agave plant as a security barrier may wish to do their homework to research eventual full growth size before placing in a permanent home. As previously stated, year-round climate is also very important to the long-term survival and your initial investment.

2. Barberry - The genus Berberis includes over 400 different species of evergreen and deciduous shrubs with varying heights of three to 10 feet. The barberry is a tough, shade tolerant, drought resistant, and hardy bush. Primarily most tolerant to Zone 4, barberry grows in almost any type of soil and requires minimal care and maintenance to survive. This, along with the eventual size and width makes the barberry bush a great security enhancement around a property. Some non-native species are considered invasive and growing them is banned in some states, so be sure to check your local bylaws before you plant. Also note that not all varieties have thorns.

Barberry Bush Spikes - Dependent on which side of the bush you are on, the spikes produced by the barberry bush makes it attractive as a security addition to your plans. As mentioned with the agave plants, if you have small children and/or pets around, you may wish to give caution when selecting this bush and how it is used.

Barberry Burning Bush - The Japanese Burning Bush is a common and more popular bush from the barberry family. When in bloom the Japanese barberry bush is very appealing to the landscape. I have personally brushed against one of these bushes while mowing the lawn and it got my attention for certain. They grow to a nice height and width as well.

There are a number of cultivars that are well-suited to hedging. The three- to four-foot-tall varieties make a very useful barrier along the sides of driveways or walkways, and even as a perimeter hedge, allowing visibility over the top. They also work great in vulnerable corners and property areas possibly not in camera coverage.

Blackthorn - This bush/tree bring beauty from afar until you stick your hand between the limbs to grab a sloe. Ouch. Some folks enjoy picking the sloe to add to their gin, however it is normally not without pain from the thorns. The thorns stick out at right angles on the intertwined branches and can be up to two inches long.

Suitable for growers in Zones 4-8, blackthorn shrubs can grow up to 10 feet tall, and with minimal pruning can create a formidable barrier around the perimeter of a property. Alternatively, it can be pruned into a neat but dense and impenetrable hedge. Fast-growing blackthorn will tolerate almost any soil, and is somewhat salt-tolerant. Once established, it needs very little care except regular moisture – so it’s not suitable for very dry areas without additional irrigation.

4. Common Holly - This evergreen shrub is both frost and drought tolerant and often referred to as the Christmas holly from native England and Europe. The leathery, dark green, glossy leaves have spiny margins, which readily attach to clothing, or tear skin. The dense, prickly leaves make holly an ideal hedge, and being evergreen, it looks good all year round. Suitable for growers in Zones 5-9, common holly is easy to grow in full sun or part shade locations. It’s fast-growing, and with regular pruning will quickly provide you with a spiny, impenetrable barrier to protect your perimeter.

Most of the 200 holly variants produce bright red berries that are toxic to humans and pets, so bear this in mind when deciding where to plant.

Holly is tolerant of most soil conditions, although it will require regular moisture. To keep plants looking their best, an application of balanced, slow-release fertilizer once a year in spring is recommended.

5. Crown of Thorns - This bush is suitable for gardens in Zones 9-11. Some may recognize the plant name that is commonly known as crown of thorns, Christ plant, or Christ thorn, This slow-growing shrub grows up to six feet tall, with spiky spines on the branches and stems. Red, pink, or white flowers with petal-like bracts appear all the year.

The sap is poisonous and can cause skin irritation, so care is needed when handling this plant. Grow in a full sun location in well-draining soil and be careful not to overwater, as wet feet can cause root rot. Plant under windows, on the inside of fences, or at vulnerable locations around your property to deter crooks.

6. Devil's Walking Stick - This is a deciduous shrub that thrives in Zones 4-9 in average, well-draining soil, and a full- or part-sun location. Some know this shrub as Hercules club and prickly ash, the devil’s walking stick is so named thanks to the dense spines found on its branches and stems. The large leaves are also armed with spiky prickles. If you have ever grabbed one of the walking sticks by accident I'm sure you have not forgotten it.

Native to the eastern US, this member of the ginseng family, Araliaceae, blooms in late summer with showy white flowers that attract bees and other pollinators. Fast growing, it self seeds easily – leaving you with young specimens popping up in unwanted locations.

Small, inedible berries appear after flowering. The roots, stems, and berries have been used historically for medicinal purposes by Native Americans and early settlers.

If you keep it pruned, the devil’s walking stick will maintain a shrubby, compact form, but it can grow into a large tree up to 20 feet tall. Regular pruning will encourage vigorous, bushy growth. It’s commonly found growing wild at the edge of woodland areas and will form dense, thorny thickets of pain. It’s best planted away from the house as it has a tendency to spread, and is useful on larger properties as a dense barrier of thorniness.

7. Hardy Orange (Flying Dragon) - The hardy orange is native to China, and is a close relative of the citrus orange we know and love. Hardy to Zone 5, this multi-branched deciduous shrub – or small tree – provides ornamental interest in the garden. The fruit is edible, but extremely sour tasting – you won’t be squeezing it for your morning orange juice. The branches are covered with two-inch thorns, and with a dense, twisting growth habit, it will provide an excellent barrier.

At peek maturity, the height can reach 15-20 feet, this plant responds well to pruning and can be fashioned into a formal or informal hedge. ‘Flying Dragon’ is ideal to plant as a hedge, growing up to five feet tall, and it responds very well to pruning. It has densely tangled stems covered in vicious thorns.

8. Hawthorn - Hawthorn is a deciduous flowering shrub or small tree. Native to temperate regions of Europe, Asia, and North America, it is commonly seen in cottage gardens, with pretty blooms in various different colors including pink, red, white, and bicolored. Most species grow in a dense clumping form, and produce small, edible berries in the early fall.

These tart fruits can be used to make jams and preserves, and have been used in herbal remedies and in traditional Chinese medicine. This species grows up to 25 feet tall at maturity with a spread of 18-20 feet. Its delicate blooms are white and the foliage turns a deep reddish-brown in the fall.

9. Honey Locust - The honey locust is a fast growing, deciduous tree native to the central US.

It looks like something out of your worst nightmare, with large clumps of thorns protruding from its trunk and branches. Honey locust thrives in Zones 3-8, and will grow into a shrubby, thorny clump unless pruned to encourage a single trunk. A member of the Fabaceae family, honey locust flowers in late spring, with fragrant, cream-colored blooms. It produces seed pods that mature in the fall, and bright green foliage gives way to autumnal yellow. This fast-growing ornamental tree can reach a lofty 90 feet tall at maturity. It thrives in average soil, and is drought, salt, and heat tolerant.

10. Porcupine Tomato - Here’s a plant that doesn’t hide its thorns shyly, buried beneath the foliage, to secretly spike an unsuspecting passerby. Large orange-yellow thorns display prominently along the branches and sprout from the leaf surface, in a decadent display of wickedness. Even the bracts surrounding the fruit have their own mini thorns.

It’s a plant that says “look at me” and “go away” in the same breath. Small purple flowers contrast with the green foliage and orange armor – appearing from late spring and lasting all through summer. You have just read about ten of many possibly additions to include when building or adding to your landscaping plans for enhanced security features. These possibilities are far more cosmetically appeasing than barriers, concrete barriers, chained fences, or earthen berms. Maybe consider both hardware and natural barriers to your plan. Good luck and shout if you have questions.

Thats all Patriots...

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.

The HFS family needs lots of prayers right now. We have several sisters and brothers in great need of uplifting. Prayers are needed in Central AL up to Huntsville, AL and our Patriot brother who remains with serious health issues. Prayers are still needed in northern GA, MD, KY, NC and TN. Please pray for our Patriot sister near Nashville who experienced a health set back unexpectedly. As you can see, we have numerous prayer needs and many are long term illnesses. Please keep our Patriot family in western NC in your prayers for uplifting, strength, wisdom and direction through a recent bad health diagnosis. This family has amazing faith and strength but could use more prayers from the prayer warrior team.

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.

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 faith and hope. Remember we are a blessed nation, and we must continue to be great people today and make a better tomorrow. Keep charging.
