Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #223

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #223. Welcome to July and the downhill race to 2024. Thanks to everyone for your continued visits and support to Hope for Survival. Just a heads up, we are back fully stocked in HFS books and the HFS memory stick at this time. Thanks for all the purchases the past few months.

It has been a very busy month for HFS with lots of travel and work, in addition to work on the home front with gardening and upkeep as we transition through hot days of July. We are canning as our garden produces in between trips and work. God is good and we appreciate all the fruits He provides to us. It can be hard work, but the rewards are far worth the time and effort.

Patriots, I hope you are paying close attention to what is going on in the world around you. I know, same message, different day. If you have kids and grandkids between 17 and 50, guess what? Your government has their eyes on our young men and ladies. They are starting up recalls of veterans now. The war drums of Washington are beating louder and louder. War is on the minds of our elite and we peasants are the ones shipped off and carried back in bags to our family with a message from a grateful nation and President. We all must get on our knees and pray hard. This is not our war or fight no matter what Washington says. If Washington is going to manage this war the way they managed the extraction from Afghanistan, God help our troops. Why aren't we defending our own border NOW instead of shipping off to another continent to fight a war we are forcing to happen. No matter how brave you are or how patriotic you may be, you do not want war. War is brutal and leaves a lifetime of scars for those who endure and suffer for life, to include families with lost loved ones. Pick up your phone and call Washington D.C. and demand a stop to this madness we are witnessing.

Instructor Lori Valone – DIY Food Storage Alternatives

Brief Description - Many of us started our prepping journey by buying commercial freeze-dried and dehydrated foods. While these #10 cans are a great way to supplement your food storage, you can preserve food yourself and dramatically lower your costs or enabling you to store more with the same spend. This session will examine do-it-yourself alternatives to increase the calories on hand to sustain those you care about.

We’ll cover a basic overview of canning, dehydrating, and home freeze drying as alternatives to increase food security. Whether you have a garden or you are using store-bought goods, you can lower your storage costs and increase your food security by preserving food yourself. We will discuss preservation techniques for both on and off-grid scenarios and discuss the pros and cons of each method.

Instructor Lori Valone - Writing your Food Security Plan

Brief Description - Not since WWII have concerns about food security affected so many Americans. The ongoing shortages of basic food items on grocery shelves are a wake-up call for many who previously have never worried about feeding their families and well as established preppers who are re-examining their food supplies.

This course will share a step-by-step method to create your own written food security plan based on the answers to four simple questions:

· Why am I storing food?

· Who am I storing food for?

· How much food do I store?

· What kinds of food do I store?

Instructor Paul Valone – Projecting Power in Politics: Beating the Woke Mob

Brief Description - The fact that you are at Heritage Life Skills says you take preparedness seriously. But are you prepared to defend your rights before, during, and after what may come?

Taught by 29-year gun rights leader and author F. Paul Valone, “Projecting Power in Politics” will teach you how to defend against leftists bent on running your life not in just state and federal governments, but also on school boards, city councils, county commissions, even HOAs. If you are sick of getting pushed around by the “woke” mob, this course is for you.

Using the playbook written by Saul Alinsky, leftists have spent 50+ years hijacking our media, our cultural institutions, and our schools. Your children are taught to hate America. Your speech is controlled. Your employer is “woke,” and you are being called “racist.” You can hide, hoping they won’t come after you or your children, or you can fight back. This seminar will teach you to fight.

Instructor Paul Valone - Getting Ready, Not Arrested: Gun Laws for Preppers

Brief Description - If you own guns, you are probably an accidental felon many times over. With more than 30,000 arcane, sometimes nonsensical local, state and federal gun laws on the books, it is nearly impossible to carry a firearm outside the home without violating more than one. Those who say, “I’m going to do what I need to, regardless of the law” should understand that government has the most control over those it can brand as law-breakers. To help you better navigate the vagaries of ATF rulemaking, the course includes not only the latest ATF-induced hazards of popular AR-15 pistols but also short-barreled shotguns that aren’t shotguns and how you can legally create un-serialized guns whose existence is unknown to anyone but you. For 2023, the course will also include, “Navigating gun rights under the Biden administration.”

Instructor Les Ward – GMRS Radio Alternative

Brief Description – This class provides the attendee with an overview of the GMRS radio.

Instructors Rhonda and Larry Wright – Preparedness 101

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 -

The Mail Bag - Randomly we select emails and messages shared to HSF during the week that we believe hits home to the journey we are currently traveling in the faith and preparedness journey. Often times we read from the submitter how both are involved. This week's email arrived from a Patriot Sister who is relatively new to HFS. We met at a location when I was speaking to a group about preparedness. She is part of the HFS Zoom Group also and is responding to some videos I shared with the group regarding AI. She shared some heart felt feelings and posed some great questions we all should consider in our journey.

She writes:

First of all, thank you so very much for the time and dedication you put into the emails, videos, and Zoom calls for everyone. I learn so much and even when I am left with so many questions and doubts about my abilities to take care of the immediate issues, what I am gaining from the material you share and the Zoom meetings we gather for is so helpful.

I watched all four videos today. Didn't get around to the sermon ... hope to watch that tonight. AI is pure evil. I felt that from the time I watched The Terminator. I remember the feeling in my gut that AI was in our future not far down the road. Discernment is a good blessing from God but sometimes it keeps you awake at night.

As I was listening to the videos, my mind automatically pulled images from movies I've seen through the years. Where Mr. Schneitman talks about the w***e riding the beast, it reminded me of the demon riding the beast toward the end of The Ghostbusters. And when he talks about the AI convincing the man he needed to leave his wife .... well, that brought to mind the scene in Harry Potter, The Deathly Hallows Part 1, when Harry, Ron, and Hermione are searching for the horcruxes. The first one they found was an amulet and one of them would wear it at all time to ensure they didn't lose it. While Ron was wearing it, Lord Voldemort whispered in Ron's mind that Harry and Hermione were plotting against him. This caused him to doubt the friendship among the three of them and he went off by himself.

I know Hollywood has been feeding us 'tidbits' for many years. I remember when I first doubted our g0v. That was 2002. Seems like a lifetime ago. In 2013, more realization hit and I didn't sleep well for over a month. I was a backslid Christian and my faith and belief weren't the strongest. When I rededicated my life to God in 2015, it became easier to accept what was happening. I began studying my Bible to better learn and understand what was coming. I remember asking God to please let me and my family be gone before anything got really bad.

You mentioned in your email how we might respond when they knock at our door. I know that whenever that is, as frightening and painful as it might be, I will stand with God; I cannot stand the thought of disappointing Him. I know He will get me through it. My faith has gotten me through an abusive relationship and the ensuing legals battles that followed. I truly truly believe God allowed me to go through all that to help build my faith and trust in Him. But I do have to wonder - when AI really begins to attack us, how are we going to know reality from the lie? Again, I have to trust God, and the discernment He gave me.

On a brighter note, land prices are falling in east TN. I am keeping a close watch so I can snatch up some land on which to build a house, grow a garden, raise some chickens, and if I have the room, keep a cow for fresh milk. If not a cow, then a goat. I like both kinds of milk. 😁

I had better close this. I know you and Ms. Lucy have been on vacation and are trying to catch up with things at your place. Looking forward to the Zoom tomorrow night."

Signed - "Sister Patriot"

Vacation - It was great to take a few days off and away on short notice. Vacations aren't something I typically do because I am a home body mostly and I traveled so much in my military years I just like to stay put. But it was a chance to escape for a few days and spend some time with another Patriot family who invited us to Lake Lure, NC. Beautiful place and a great time together taking in some lake opportunities. It is always good to spend time with this family and chat preparedness together.

While at this location, we got to meet two brothers who are in the law enforcement field, one local and the other federal prison systems, both drone operators. We met because we watched them flying their drones around the lake and it made us curious. We wanted to learn more about drones, positive and negative, and some of the capabilities. One of the gents taught me the controls (basic) and then handed me the control module and said "here, fly it." The drone was way out over the lake at the time. The camera functions are amazing. Clear, real time feeds to the module. I was impressed what a $500 drone would offer and the ease of flying it and landing it three feet in front of our location. Settings allows the operator to guide the drone back to a preset destination when the battery reaches a point of remaining battery and give the drone enough power to return home. It also has settings to prevent crashing into objects. It is like a bubble around the drone to keep it from hitting an object and crashing. There was much more. This resource offers the plans for preparedness a great capability to security, checking property boundaries, clearing structures, looking for lost animals and family members who may be lost and more. The time these gents afforded us was much appreciated. A drone is something to consider adding to our preparedness resources very soon.

Of course, being on the road driving to and from the location, and some down time to think on my own, I always get lost wondering why things are the way they are in our world today. I don't know about you but I do miss many things of the past I remember. Back when no one judged the other because of their skin color or socio-economic status. Maybe they did and I just missed it because I didn't pay attention to it.

I did catch bits of news and didn't spend anytime reading my typical sites because I was on vacation, right? First semi-vacation in 13 years. The first news I caught was the discovery of cocaine in the White House. No way, really? Is that a shock to anyone? We once had a President getting favors in the oval office and no one reported it. Should we really believe someone will report a cocaine user? Not. Today I heard the investigation was closed out because they couldn't find any DNA. Hmm. All government and contractors are subject to drug testing. And current tests are available to test hair samples which goes back for months dependent on the length of the hair. Now, let us be honest, they don't want to know who. Unless, someone is just dropping hint of suspicion to start the process of ridding the party of the current chair holder before 2024. Remember, M-O is waiting in the wings to be the next party nomination no matter how much she says she isn't interested. She is setting herself up just as her husband did previously. Remember this is the woman who complained about America being a racist country and studied communism and socialism under Ms. Dorn. I need say more.

While we watch the NATO Summit meeting circle up like to watch the former comedian who leads Ukraine show up in his war time uniform (cough, cough) to look up to the United States and demand billions more to fight the war. The same war that former Secretary of State John Kerry is saying to be the cause of a noticeable increase in greenhouse gasses harming the environment. Wars damage city septic systems. Hmm. Maybe we should point out the fact John Kerry's son team with Hunter in Ukraine to make millions before the war as an advisor. The punch line to this circus was when a senior Ukrainian leader spoke up to say every American citizen should pay a $200 per day fee for hired mercenaries in Ukraine to fight Russia.

Recently I caught a story how a particular NBA player signed a multi-million dollar contract with a China shoe company and he is being praised for opening up doors to international markets. This is the same China who our intelligence services warn to be preparing for war with the US of A in 2025. The same China who owns Tik-Tok which is being used by millions of American children at the knowledge of parents. I am simply amazed at the complete denial of adults that bad can never happen in their home. Is it just me, or have any of you noticed how everything bad in our nation is caused by Patriot, Christian, Veteran, racist yet nothing is ever said about our professional sports leagues are all exempt and ignored? Why? Is it about the hundreds of million of dollars being paid in taxes by professional teams and players or just because the leagues and players are often driving the racist agenda along with Hollywood? I'm still waiting on them to travel to Chicago and clean up the gang bangers and drugs. Crickets.

I could share more thoughts but honestly, if you are like me, sometimes you just need a break and get tired of hearing it all the time.

On a bright spot, we went to watch the Sound of Freedom and it was a great story and is only a small sampling of the massive ongoing problem with child kidnappings, under age sex trafficking, and high-level government involvement. This problem has been going on since the Viet Nam war and gotten worse. The United States is the leading culprit of the porn industry in financing and usage of it as well. It may not matter to many outside of watching it and commenting how bad it is. What can you do? You can donate to the many organizations who are fighting on the front lines and also recovering and housing abused children. It takes lots of money to perform any level of surveillance, operations, and recovery. Then housing and protection must be provided. Who is paying for these efforts? Private organizations and citizens just like you. Would it make any difference I stated, this could be your kid or grandkid who goes missing and is now being shipped outside the nation? Go see the movie if you have not. It is well worth your time and money. As dark as this topic is, the bright side is more eyes are opening to the dark evil in our nation and world. Hopefully this will increase hourly, and we can get to more children faster.


Preparedness - On another HFS platform I ask the question "what did you do to prepare yourself and family better today, this week, and this month? What do you have to show for your time, if anything? Let me ask you a question, if you are spending hours per day and week getting stressed over the war in Ukraine or the craziness in Washington D.C., what do you have to show for your invested time that will help you be better prepared?

Yes, it is a personal decision for certain and we must individually decide what preparing means to us and how much time we can set aside to prepare. Is it a closet option or is it a part of the daily life? Garden vegetables vs purchased from a local market or vegetable stand in the community. Only you can decide that, right? In ways, its like saving and investing over life so you can hopefully retire in comfort someday. This is long-term planning vs having a spare time in your trunk for the unexpected emergency. Both are preparedness steps as well for short- and long-term survival.

Personally, I work to be better prepared daily. Faith aside, my vision of what is ahead is fairly bleak and it is not looking very promising in many ways. My personal concern is both natural and manmade causes to a change in our way of life soon. We all must stay focused, and this includes changes to the earth. No, I'm not talking green gasses and cow burps. Look around you and notice all the localized events and natural disasters occurring and being deemed 1,000-year storms and things of this nature. I'm not here to explain why or debate causes, I'm suggesting we all must be prepared now because a natural disaster can hit today.

People will argue over the earth being round or flat to the point of a fight, but no one is wondering or asking why the earth's surface is hotter and it will soon be difficult to impossible to grow vegetable seeds as we currently do. Then what? If you didn't put food back now, and your seeds won't grow, the stores can't stock food, what are you going to eat and feed your family? We are hearing of pole shifts and changes to how the earth will appear within ten years. The new Antartica may be the Brazil region. Oddly, my Uncle told me of these changes back in the 1960s. Was he right? Time will tell. Point being, if we can't grow food as we do today what will we eat or grow? How should we be planning for these changes? Step one, start paying attention to discussions being conducted and ignored by mainstream media and our government. Again, self-reliance and planning for the truth ahead.

Thats all Patriots...

Preparedness News -

1. From The Survival Mom - Homecare Nursing: Survival Medicine's Missing Link - Survival Mom ( - Yes, one of the most overlooked areas in preparedness. Millions of dollars spent on medical kits and bags....with minimal to no training. The dog retrieves the ball and then looks at you like "what's next?" Think of your IFAK, Medical Kit or any other resource outside a band aid as doing the same as the dog. (Thanks Virginia Patriot Sister for this submission)

2. From Bob Rodgers - Preppers Will - How To Fill Your Belly On A Budget ( - This is something we all should be applying in our planning for medium- and long-term storage planning.

3. From Erin Foster - Survival Mom - Beat the Bugs: Unlock the Secrets of Bug Bite Remedies - Survival Mom ( - Its that time of year. Do you walk through your grass maybe 15 minutes from sundown and feel like the grass zombies are attacking your ankles and legs? You then say to yourself, "I sprayed bug spray on my skin, what is wrong?" Check out this article. (Thanks Virginia Patriot Sister for this submission)

4. From Tony Hansen - Meat-eater - Why You Should Reconsider Your Trail Cam Strategy | MeatEater Wired To Hunt ( - Interesting points made by the author. Think outside the box on this topic.

Other News -

1. From Joel Gilbert - American Thinker - Michelle Obama’s Affirmative Action Adventure at Princeton - American Thinker - This is an outstanding article and one to hopefully wake up more eyes and minds.

2. From PHD James Giordano- Rumble - Watch in Horror as James Giordano, PhD Explains What Mad Scientists Are Up to Now ( - Do you have trouble sleeping at night? This guy is not the fix or remedy. Are you still watching mainstream news lies and wondering why they aren't telling you why the world around you is collapsing? This isn't for you either. But, for all others, this is a frightening and eye-opening delivery. I'm personally not surprised because I used to live in this world long ago. But to society who trusted and believed in a system that had their back and wellbeing covered? Maybe not so much so. (Thanks Festus, for this submission)

3. From Tyler Durden - Zero Hedge - Study Finds Xanax, Valium Associated With Brain Injury, Suicide | ZeroHedge - Are you surprised? Have you ever researched the average weight of child and adult men and ladies, suicide rates amongst the same group and period, prior to big pharma? Just saying.....

4. From John and Nisha Whitehead - The Rutherford Institute - The Rutherford Institute :: A State of Martial Law: America Is a Military Dictatorship Disguised as a Democracy | By John & Nisha Whitehead | - Do you ever wake up and wonder if you have been in a bad dream? What is real vs what you believed because its how it worked before the internet and you becoming a independent critical thinker? Amazing how we see the world from a different perspective huh?

Shurk - American Thinker - The Controlled Demolition of Nation-States - American Thinker - I know, as long as the cable tv works and one can watch all their favorite shows while sucking down ding dongs and Twinkie cakes, who cares. Someday that Wal Mart on the corner may just be gone and the Dollar Store will be the Two Dollar Store and you will have to make two trips to get the four dollar box of twinkies. Things are changing quickly to us but in reality it has been happening for a long period of time. (Thanks, Festus, for this submission)

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.

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.
