Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #269

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #269. Thanks for stopping by for this week's edition of the PENL. I hope you enjoyed a safe and blessed Memorial Day weekend. The nation is still enduring horrific storms with tornadoes and floods what seems like daily. Isn't it amazing how the cloud seeding seems to be in the same locations as the storms? Hmmm, just saying.

It has been a great week here on the home front. Anytime I get to spend time at home and with HFS Patriots stopping by for a visit, it's very good. A Patriot sister from the Cumberland Plateau stopped by for a few hours to visit and catch up with us. We then had a short notice burger and hot dog lunch here at our house and had eight neighbors join us for the afternoon. Six of the eight are HFS Patriots. Amazing how these things happen from a street conversation and folks want to get together. Why are these get togethers so important? Bonding with the people around you. It was a very relaxing time together which we enjoyed. My brother from another mother, Festus, stopped by at the first of the week for a few hours to chat and catch up on things we choose not to discuss via phones or computers. It was a great day and week. Thanks to everyone for sharing their time with us here on the home front.

Grandparents and parents, are you paying attention to what your government is getting ready to do? Yea, I know, this could be a loaded question with 1,000 different answers. Selective Service. Have you heard about this? Yes, there is a lot of movement to impose a digitalized registration process where your little Johnny will be automatically registered for the draft. At first it will be men only, however there is a national movement of males moving towards a transgender status to avoid the suspected draft. It will most likely turn to both males and females being registered. Take a look for yourself. Most of Europe and the United States are all moving towards a draft and/or a reengagement of conscripts which is a 12- or 24-month commitment to their nation. You may be asking why? How do you feel about your loved one being sent to defend Ukraine?

I would encourage you to watch this video fully to get a big picture.

Let us move along.

HFS New Affiliation with Aftershock Freeze Dried Foods - I have personally taste tested several of the freeze-dried products. GMO free and a choice between regular or Gluten free, I'm totally impressed with the quality and price of their products. Many of the other providers of dehydrated and freeze-dried foods left my fingers tingling and feeling a tad swollen. This was because of the sodium content. Not the case with Aftershock freeze-dried foods. Another great feature of Aftershock Preparedness meals is for a low price you get larger serving sizes in each bagged meal. For example, the Taco Rice Skillet was a serving size for five. The freeze-dried white chicken is a serving size for three, The Cajun Pasta Laya is a single serving. The prices are adjusted according to the serving size. They are 25- and 30-year shelf-life products depending on the product of choice. As an affiliate, if you use the following link, HFS will receive a small percentage of the purchase price which is great. The customer is getting a high-quality product and HFS receives a small payment to help financially support the HFS mission. It's a win all the way around. You can buy single packed meals, fruit, dairy, meat and vegetables, or you can by the larger buckets with single packaged items in the bucket for easy storage. Use this link to get started.

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.

Thoughts for the week - Put on your seat belt and hold on. You don't want to ignore this video. Now the question is, who is going to hold those responsible accountable? We, the people, needs to tow flatbed trailers to our nation's capital and hold trials and render punishment on live television. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. (This video was recorded about one year ago but is very applicable today.

What will America look like when the Petro Dollar goes away? Here is another respected opinion from David at Adapt 2030.

Preparedness - I grew sweet potatoes last year for the first time in a raised bed and was thrilled to harvest 68 lbs. last October. We pulled several out that was easily half the size of a football. Once they rested for about two weeks in a warm area, the color turned golden, and the taste was sweeter. They have kept well all winter and spring and still have a few remaining. We have this season's sweet potatoes planted and will harvest in late September.

Here's our local friend Tony discussing growing sweet potatoes.

Here is another method of growing sweet potatoes. This is another local voice from Survival Homestead Teaching Farm. Dr. Amanda is a great teacher and wealth of knowledge.

Our HFS family has many prayers needs for health and moral. We love you all and continue praying for each of you.

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.
