Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #230. Thanks for being here and sharing your time with us. We appreciate you. Welcome to September 2023. Here we are and nothing has gotten better since the start of August. More debt, more lies, more problems and more proof each of us, our families, and communities better be ready for getting ready to stand on our own because what is ahead should be scaring the socks off your flip flop wearing feet. Fact, not fear porn.
I want you to read this clearly and understand, those who are under the control of the federal government are getting ready for another Covid-19 era to be followed by another lock down. It is coming and they are prepared and waiting for further guidance. Just add two and two together and you should get four, clearly.
We had a great weekend with fellow HFS sisters and brothers. We fit in a crossbow training class to help myself and another HFS brother along with new crossbows, we got to share a great meal together and converse about preparedness, the world today, faith, and future projects. Thanks to our Patriot brother and sister from the Atlanta area for joining us to spend time and teaching the class that was much needed. Folks, this is what the HFS connection is about and meant to provide. The week also allows Ms. Lucy and I to can a bushel of peaches another Patriot sister and brother hooked us up with. We ended up with some frozen peaches, canned diced peaches and jelly jars of peaches with jalapeno and crushed pecan. Once I get home from my current road trip, we have a bushel of apples waiting on us to can. We also got blessed to purchase a half beef from another HFS Patriot sister so we picked it up from the butcher and it awaits some canning as well. These are day to day things we all should be planning, doing, and bettering our preparedness package to achieve self-reliance. Individual, family, and community.
Putting canned food in your stock for future use along with fresh beef, chicken, pork, and turkey certainly is like money in the bank. It is certainly healthier and more enjoyable.
We have been talking and teaching preparedness under HFS for over four years now. The time to use these skills and benefit from your food stock is now. Prices are soaring and not getting better. You should have a good estimate of what you still need and how much. Things are moving quickly before our eyes, and we don't want you to get caught short. Plan and move accordingly to be in a better position to survive what is ahead.
It is September 1, 2023, and this month is recognized on the calendar as National Preparedness Month. During this month, check your local county or state, to see if you can get discounted prices or tax-free shopping on items relating to national preparedness. Generators, solar panels, and more. Take advantage of this month in areas that can help you be better prepared. Go to Ready.gov to learn more. You will find additional checklists and guidance for different types of disasters you may face in your area.

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 -
How We Got Here - Long ago I shared how it is amazing how God works. I have been on the road all week and to be honest, my brain is a bit fragged from a very busy past week taking care of life, my own personal preparedness, HFS different platforms, writing, and tending to my day job and travel. When it seems I'm overloaded and my brain isn't providing me a topic or thoughts to share for the week, something flashes before my eyes, or someone sends a worthy story to share. This is one of those weeks.
Last week I shared some thoughts on election 2024 and why I believe we are in a pickle. Furthermore, society today and especially the political scene seems to be more of a circus than anything. A former President of our great nation is arrested for starters. Unheard of and especially having lived through the 1990's and beyond. Politics really started seeming like a game of "who's on first" this week to take the media heat. As the media shifted away from journalism to political sides, the game changed. Then I see the mug shot of Orange Man going viral around the world and again, it was like a game. In the first 24 hours post mug shot he raked in about $7.5 million dollars. Are you kidding me? Guess how much of the raised funds went to ensure the Jan 6 hostages will get fair legal representation? Zero. Now, I have asked this question to many over the past two years, and I get the biggest pile of crap you can imagine as to why Orange Man isn't helping fellow Patriots who are hostages in the legal system. These are fellow sisters and brothers who went to Washington D.C. on Jan 6, just like many of you, and they ended up camera or film and are now held without trial. This could be YOU.
On the other side of the pond, the short guy who is having to hold all the US taxers money in two hands and a buggy, said Ukraine will not have elections coming up unless the US and UK pay for them or something like that. Is this guy possibly black mailing Washington for some reason? Just saying.... Mark your calendar for this day because I wouldn't be surprised to hear some lame excuse as to why election 2024 is being cancelled. Or, you are not considered a US citizen without the upcoming mandated jab (it's coming) which will then get you your new citizenship ID that will allow you to vote. Oh, guess how many MAGA voters currently do not have the existing jab and likely won't get the upcoming jab.....unless.... Orange Man once again tells them to do so just so they can vote for him. Now wouldn't that be peachy.
Sadly, we witnessed another shooting incident at the University of North Carolina, Chappel Hill. Another shooting, more hype, and a media that described the shooter as white-Asian. Huh? The shooter, Zijie Yan, a student of the victim, was later caught. Sad situation as always. But the fact the shooter who is clearly Asian, was described to be a white-Asian. Do you understand the writing on the wall? If not, you may want to catch up.
A Patriot sister and brother from the Cumberland Plateau shared the following article with me that is authored by Dr. Robert Malone. Many of you may recognize the name from the Covid-19 era, who was one of many professionals who spoke out against the mandated vaccine. I believe this article is worth sharing in place of my own words which are probably sounding a bit like a revolving carousel these days.
Preparedness Thoughts: Over the period of the Covid-19 era and current day many Patriots put forth effort to backfill their medicinal stock with antibiotics and other essential needs for emergency medicinal supplies. If you or your loved ones need to acquire additional medicines such as antibiotics, ivermectin, and other needs, you can use one of the below sites. I know there's more site available and you can cost compare.
These lists are provided for your own use and determination. We are not and do not promote these locations or suggest you purchase from them without first speaking with your private physician.

Preparedness News -
1. From Rich M. - Ask a Prepper - Deadly Mistakes People Made During The Great Depression - Ask a Prepper - Everyone should take note of this article and ensure you don't make the same mistakes. At the point of a depression many can't afford any mistakes, period.
2. From Tom Marlowe - Homesteading Hippy - 36 Things to Never Compost * The Homesteading Hippy - Are you a composter? We started composting a couple years ago. More so, Ms. Lucy runs the composting side of our preparedness lifestyle. Give it a shot.
3. From Tom Marlowe - New Life on a Homestead - Male vs. Female Rabbits: 13 Key Differences • New Life On A Homestead - Good information.
4. From Linda Loosli - Food Storage Moms - Types of Pasta to Stockpile For Emergencies - Food Storage Moms - We all like pasta, right? Are you storing it, outside the box you purchased it in? Long term strategy? Check this article out.
5. From SELCO - SHTF School - Psychological Skills: Dealing with Uncertainty and Overcoming Fear - SHTF School - Personally, I do believe this is one of the most important topics in preparedness. The world we live today is not a podcast. It is not a newsclip. It is not a video game or something to only talk about around the dinner tables. This is real and the winner moves on and the loser likely won't see tomorrow.
Other News -
1. From Ethan Huff - Natural News - COVER-UP: Licensed operator says his drone was force-grounded upon nearing site of Maui Fire origin, then he was visited by government agents – NaturalNews.com - This is interesting. Blocking the flight path I can understand, but a visit from the federal government? Disasters are managed at the local level and the local level answers to the governor, typically. Interesting the feds already existed on site. (Thanks Festus, for this submission)
2. From Revolver News - Operation Popeye: How the US government turned the weather into a weapon of war... - Revolver News - THIS is an excellent read. Still don't believe in weather manipulation?
3. From Rebeka Zeljko - The Federalist - Report: ALA Chief Is On A Crusade To Stock Libraries With Porn (thefederalist.com) - It just never ends. Ms. Lucy often takes our grandkids to the library when visiting with us. Folks, this is beyond crossing the red line in many ways. Between public schools, libraries, child protective services and others, parents better crack down and get serious, now.
4. From Linnea Lueken - Issues and Insights - There’s More To Story Than ‘Climate Change’ — The Media Must Keep Pushing And Asking Questions About The Lahaina Fires – Issues & Insights (issuesinsights.com) - Yep, the truth just doesn't seem to matter, does it? You didn't see that, just move along and stop paying so much attention to the truth.
5. From John Zmirak - The Stream - The Next Target After Trump Is ... You - The Stream - And the beat goes on, and the beat goes on. Yes, bake the cookies and save some milk. We are the weeds and they control the poison, if we let them.
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. We continue to have lots of illness from state to state, and we lost two loved ones in the past two weeks. Please keep these Patriots in your thoughts and prayers.
Please include our sister in East TN for a quick recovery and appointment with a good cardiologist to answer questions to her issues. Also include our sister in Western NC who had a kidney procedure to eliminate a large kidney stone. We continue praying for our brother in Western NC as he continues chemo treatment. Prayers to him and his dear wife who is supporting and caring for him during this time. We pray for our sister in central Alabama who recently lost her husband of many years. Please pray for her comfort during this time and for answers to many questions in the days ahead. We also pray for the unknown individuals who suffer or face trying times today and ahead. May you all be blessed, and peace be with you.
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.
