Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #238. Thanks for stopping by for this week's PENL. Autumn has turned absolutely beautiful here near the Great Smokey Mountains. The magical colors of God's gentle brush are priceless. There is no way us messed up humans could create such beauty. Sometimes during this time of year, I find myself wanting to be alone in a peaceful place taking in His creation around us. Is it just me, or would this apply to you as well?
It has been a very busy week on this end with some major day job task to be completed and delivered. This required me to be on the road most of the week. I found myself in a mood where I felt I needed to listen more and do some heavy thinking about all the chaos around us. The question I found myself pondering heavily for several days has been, aside from my faith what do I believe to be true that is really an illusion?
One by one, those who want us to believe they are fighters and tough are falling like cheap suits on a Paris fashion show walkway. Just a few years ago the man known as the bulldog on the conservative side spoke and spoke and spoke more about the Benghazi scandal and how he was going to bring down the corrupt. What happened? The left stood strong, and he caved. He then left Washington D.C. to go home to his family. I respect this decision of course. Now we watch the fiasco in the House in Washington D.C. with another tough guy from Ohio and after two failed votes he caves and pulls his name. Huh? Gee, that was truly a sign he would have fought for us. Do you know how many tries the former speaker named McCarthy fought and tried until he won? Try 15. Think about that.
While our outspoken right leaning warriors are gaining zero ground over the past years, our Jan 6 Patriots remain locked up, Pelosi, Waters, and the rest of the 80 plus year old taxpayer funded politicians remain getting paid and representing our government. Think about that. Who represents you? The tough good guys are eaten alive and then sent away purring like a kitten. Justice, morals, integrity, and doing what is right is no longer part of the game plan from our nation's capital. I do believe "we the people" must stand together as the majority and remain faithful and strong but ensure we no longer accept business as usual on any account.
By the way, because of my limited time the past few weeks I have been putting more thoughts on my YouTube videos vs writing them below. You can find the link to the HFS YouTube video posted down below.

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 -
My message for this week is pretty much summed up in the attached video podcast that I challenge each of you to stop what you are doing and listen. Some of you may know the host as a former politician in Idaho, but has since been a voice for America, the Constitution, faith, and family. You may also remember two of his previous movies; Agenda and Agenda II, which are very worthy of your time. Ms. Lucy and I had the honor of attending a function with Mr. Bowers in Huntsville, AL about ten years ago and many things he shared remains n my thoughts to this day. Again, please check out Patriot Curtis Bowers message. The COURAGE To STAND: Do You Have It? (rumble.com) (lThanks to our Patriot brother from Central Alabama for sharing this message.)
Continuing with my thoughts for the week and ongoing, what we are seeing around the world and at home is power. Good vs evil. Global control of the money, oil, and food, resources. Once one takes time to see and understand these things world events will make more sense hopefully.

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.
