Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #235. Thanks for stopping by for this week's PENL. If you are here, then I take it you survived this week's national level emergency testing system. Hopefully you didn't blow up your cell phone in your microwave. Anyone else find it odd that the United States and Russia are both testing their systems the same day? This was the first test in Russia since dirt was discovered. I know for many; this was a scary day with so much fear in the air. The fear porn world beat this test in the ground. From an emergency management perspective, these tests are not only good, but they are also required by federal law every three years.
I picked the last of my second run of green beans this week and got a good return considering it was from a raised bed concept. Ms. Lucy thought the canning season was over and I walked in with two bags of fresh beans. We got another 18 pints picked and canned with some leftovers for a good batch of dinner beans. Our total bean production for the year was about 55 pints of beans and several frozen packets as well. These blessings are much to be thankful for and we are. We still have lots of peppers, sweet potatoes, and beets still growing.
October is a very busy month for our household. We are on the road about every week through the month and a couple weekends as well. We journeyed to Nashville to hear one of my old favorite bands, Chicago, and wasn't disappointed on any account. Great show. I have another weekend on the road to the Cumberland Plateau to teach a class on Communities broken into quadrants. I'm looking forward to the event and seeing some new friends I've met since conducting training for these folks. This will be my fourth trip and class.
Speaking of communities and quadrants, I want to give a shout out and huge "that a boy" to the many Patriots who continue establishing community teams, conducting training, bonding with meals, and reaching out to neighboring communities to establish memorandums of agreements and communication capabilities. Don't give up and keep on preparing. This is timely and hard work. Your efforts are not going unnoticed.

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...

Preparedness News -
1. From Survival Blog Contributor - Survival Blog - Outhouse Construction: How to Build an Outhouse, by Mrs. Alaska (survivalblog.com) - One of the most needed resources and most ignored or taken for granted. This resource is a must have and if not dealt with, this simple need will take you down.
2. From Bob Rodgers - Preppers Will - Heating And Cooling Your Home With Geothermal Energy (prepperswill.com) - Heating and cooling is a critical need for families. Do you have a backup plan for essential needs such as keeping your family warm or cooled?
3. From Homestead Lady - 3 Easy Ways to Draw a Homestead Base Map • Homestead Lady - Wow, what a brilliant concept. Drawing a map? Gee, maybe go ahead and draw up a plan at the same time? Oh, no, the dreaded plan word again. LOL
4. From SELCO - The Organic Prepper - SELCO: Strategy and Mobility Are the Most Important Preps (theorganicprepper.com) - Good read.
5. From Linda Loosli - Food Storage Moms - Don't Bother Prepping These Items - Food Storage Moms - If you are like many of us, storage space is critical these days. Why buy things not worthy of storing in your resources.
Other News -
1. From Tyler Durden - Zero Hedge - Starlink Now Operational Across Entire US As Elon Musk Becomes 'Uncancellable' | ZeroHedge - Are you surprised? (Thanks Festus, for this submission.)
2. From Maximelien Lacour- Brownstone Institute - Why Did People Comply? ⋆ Brownstone Institute - Have you asked this question to yourself? Why did you comply? Fear. Statistically, humans turn to leadership for guidance and direction when fear is placed over them. Just like on 911. Scare you and you then shell up and look to another in leadership to tell you what to do. (Thanks Festus, for this submission.)
3. From Brandon Smith - Alt-Market - Solutions Are Scary: Part 1 – It's Time To Bring Back Citizen Militias - Alt-Market.us - Say the word Militia and people run. Again, fear. Blind trust. People place blind trust in their government with no accountability. (Thanks Festus, for this submission.)
4. From Brandon Smith - Alt-Market - Oh, how dare me to post something about militias. They are against the law and will get you locked up. Yea, well, isn't there a historical document that talks about citizen militias? Good read. (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.
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.
