Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #231. Thanks for being here and sharing your time with us. We appreciate you. Here we are again approaching mid-September with more natural disasters, a growing war front, higher crime, small business closures continue to increase, and more. Still believe mainstream media. If you answered yes, you may as well stop reading right here.
Did you have a great holiday long weekend? What did you do fun for yourself? Maybe a family race snapping beans for the kettle? Maybe shucking some corn? Maybe some target practice or hiking to get in better shape? I know, it has been so flaming hot that doing outdoor stuff isn't so fun. STOP!!! Imagine losing your air conditioning about now. Ouch. Plan, plan, plan. One is none, two is one, and three is better. Ms. Lucy and I got to spend the long weekend at home in East TN and we worked on some logistics of our home preparedness. This took hours and labor, but it worked out for the positive. I was on the road to last week and had to take another short notice trip this week. This means I'm putting the newsletter together again from a far distance place not called home. I wonder if this is how Gilligan felt being stranded on the island.
Ms. Lucy and I did get to do something fun Labor Day morning and early afternoon. We had the honor of escorting two of our dear friends to breakfast which allowed us to spend a couple hours in the car transiting to and from breakfast. It may seem like a lot of car time but it was a great opportunity to learn from our friends. This was a special day aside from Labor Day. It was our friends 60th wedding anniversary. That's right. The big 60. They still laugh and kid one another just two young love birds. They started out and spent a lifetime starting a farm, expanding a farm, adding animals, and being very productive and successful as well. It is like hitting the jackpot when talking to them about their early years, struggles, and surviving, and comparing to what they see today. Good stuff. By the way, the breakfast we enjoyed was superb. Biscuits and gravy, eggs, taters, all the fixings to boot. Then you could pick from one of a gazillion types of pancakes or waffles. Being the healthy eater I am, I passed on the pancakes and waffles and stuck to the biscuits and gravy. Yum, yum.
We come here each week and share all the terrible things going on around us. But it is equally or more important to stop and remember how blessed we truly are. I could list many blessings that I am thankful for. One we all have in common is we have been warned to what appears to be ahead of us and it is giving is time to put together some level of a preparedness package and plan. Don't take it for granted.
Let us move along....

Round Table Training for family and friends - So often I am asked questions regarding family and friends who are asleep and not paying attention. Many of you know I typically promote minimally on this page for many reasons unless I find something I truly believe is quality, a need, and a fair price. SouthernPrepper1 and Practical Survival has this awesome boxset available for your purchase at a very low price. Many of you may already follow Southernprepper1 and Practical Survival, and already agree they do a great job almost daily bringing current news and reasons everyone needs to prepare. I have my set-in hand, and this is a great set with endless topics and conversation opportunities.
Here is a great opportunity without putting your loved ones on the spot. These are flash cards with different emergency situations posing the question, "What would you do" in given situations. Here's your chance to purchase Are you Ready? for WROL - A world without the rule of law. It is a game that can be played when company comes over, a weekend grill out, or when family visits. You will get 300 thought provoking scenario cards that will generate thought and discussions. These are also great Christmas and birthday gifts.
Multiple topics listed below.
You can buy your own personal set and additional sets if you wish, at the following link:
Humble Bundle - Not sure if you a familiar with Humble Bundle. It is a site that offers bundles of books, games, software, music, 3d pintables, etc, etc and some of the proceeds go to charity.
Their latest bundle is a digital collection of a "Survival Readiness Essentials" (42 eBooks) for a donation of at least $18. These are books that are put out by Sky Horse. Some of these I have hard copies from Bill and Jan's (these may not be useful DURING SHTF but studying before hand would be good). Did not know if you wanted to pass this along to the Prep 101 Family.
I have the hard back copies to many of the books offered in digital form for a very low price, bundled. This is a great opportunity to build your digital library and learn a lot of basics to preparedness. (This opportunity was sent to me by a Patriot brother from Western, NC.) Thanks for sending this in.

We must make this brief public announcement to protect the innocent.
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 -
Back to the Future - Years ago, maybe ten to twelve, Festus and I spent hundreds of hours researching and mapping out where we thought things would go in the future with the change to the nation and the world. The more time we spent and mapped out what we believed could be on the horizon the crazier it sounded. Heck, we thought so which meant anyone we shared it with thought worse. Guess what? We are approaching the time when many of these things are on the surface and becoming reality.
The establishment of fifteen-minute cities. No, we didn't know the title, but we did see the future forming of the concept. With the changing of laws, deployment of artificial intelligence, digital tracking of citizens, and a personal credit scoring for your words and actions. You will not be allowed to travel outside your fifteen-minute range without permission. These permissions will be controlled by your actions and any travel outside the 15-minute area will be limited in number in a designated period. If you have family living in another state, you may be authorized to visit one to two times per year. Crazy huh? How will they know? You are being tracked by a digital device on your cell phone or else a device will be inserted under your skin. Food, clothing, recreation, and more enjoyments of life, will be controlled, monitored, and prevented, based on your activities 24 x 7.
A first, the advertisement of the 15-minute cities will be exciting to many and seem like a good deal, until a while afterwards when you must swear your allegiance to the smart programs. Control of all aspects of life and humanity is the goal. Mess up and life will be miserable. Public transportation will be very limited and travel by personal auto will be minimal to zero. Sadly, in the 15-minute concept and lifestyle there is minimal infrastructure for senior citizens. You will also find minimal to zero churches. Get that? And, if your church is outside the 15-minute range, you won't go.
You will be living in a 400-500 sq foot box that you will call home. Much of your life will be spent through AI goggles where you can travel and see the world without leaving your square box. You can eat bugs and pretend they are steak or your favorite meal. Think the ongoing training across America on equality and everyone is equal in lifestyle and payment.
Medical care will be nonexistent. Actions create policies in the world today. In many cities today, gang bangers are chasing their victims to the hospital and going into the emergency rooms and shooting the victims. Remember the early Covid-19 era where you couldn't get into the ER and would be greeted outside at a medical tent? Guess what? In the very near future, like now, you are going to see the redeployment of medical tents outside of hospitals. The only folks allowed inside of the hospital will be those transported by ambulance.
Think of the CCP (China) concept with far greater technology to track, trace, and control you. Remember how controlled life was for the Iraqis and Libyans? Think of it on hyper speed with cameras, drones and infrastructure every step you take daily. There is no way out unless you play by the rules. Remember, technology today can predict your thinking and actions before you act on your thoughts.
I know this sounds far-fetched and out of this world, but this is here and being rapidly put into place. If you would like to know more how this works just look at some of the third world countries already outfitted. By the way, the US is planning on having 15-minute cities in 1140 locations. Check out the global covenant of mayors for more information. Home - Global Covenant of Mayors
Do your own reading and research into Agenda 2030, World Economic Forum, and Global Central Banking.
We are in a total pickle Patriots. Evil is upon us now and it will only get worse. Your best offering from this platform is to look up and get your life right now.

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.
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.
