Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #272

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #272. Thanks for stopping by for this week's edition of the PENL. I'm sorry I can't offer you a cold beverage or a snow cone to offset this heat. It is pretty brutal isn't it. Are the temperatures hotter than what we endured as kids or is it we are softer now because of air conditioning. I have to admit, I certainly don't find the same joy today as I did 50 years ago when listening to the old song Seasons in the Sun. Remember that happy song?

This was a travel week for me so available time to write on the newsletter or do YouTube videos has been a bit limited. Have you noticed you see very few, if any, kids playing outside these days? I have noticed in both Alabama and Eastern Tennessee it is rare to see a child or children outdoors during the summer. We've gone from creeks and streams to paid admission at the local pool. From water hoses to expensive bottled water like the stars drink. From cutoff jeans and old sneakers or bare feet, to name brand sneakers and stylish shorts and tops. It has been nearly 50 years since I enjoyed living outdoors all summer long. Oh, how times changed. The question is how would society classify the change, good or bad? Back in the day we had to get up and physically walk from house to house to see if a friend could come out and play. Sure, we had a phone with a party line. What!!! Yea, we had to share a single phone line with multiple homes. So, imagine having to share a single cell phone with three other siblings. Yea, exercise was a given around most homes.

Things are so different today. In many American neighborhoods parents can't let children outside the home for fear of being abducted or kidnapped. It is mid-2024 and I am still blown away by the number of people I personally know in the preparedness world who still refuses to believe pedophilia is a common occurrence in America. They also refuse to believe the level of child abduction occurring at high levels in America. Sad times we are living through.

I don't want to get too personal here or come across being insensitive to circumstances but every time I see a video of Uncle Joe wondering around in a field or off a stage, I think of the little shaky things that we see during Christmas at our elderly aunt's house. You know, shake it up and watch it snow. I know, I just ruined your own memory of the snowball shakers. I have this thought of pouring snow inside his head and he's mentally lost and doesn't know a direction to go. Seriously, where are we as a society, regardless of political party, that humanity is standing for this senior aged man who certainly is having cognitive issues being put out in front of the world

As we move along in this week's newsletter I want to ask a question. Who is on crack to a greater degree, the White House for believing we are so dumb that we believe all they tell us about Uncle Joe's health, or those who believe everything the White House press corps tell us. Folks this puts a circus to shame.

I have often commented about the state of America's churches today and on and on. This doesn't mean all churches however most churches will be labeled because of a single church, or two, or three. In recent months three prominent pastors hit the spotlight for allegations made against them from the past. T.D. Jakes for participating on sexual orgies with rapper Diddy. Tony Evans stepped down for undisclosed acts, and recently Robert Morris stepped down after a lady come forward claiming the pastor molested her years before. The church spoke and revealed he had told the church years ago of the affair. What is not certain is why the church attempted to cover it up. The young lady the pastor had the affair with was 12 at the time. Yes, we are all sinners indeed.

Let us move along.

HFS New Affiliation with Aftershock Freeze Dried Foods - Do you still need to get prepared? Need long term food stock? Here you go. 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 buy the larger buckets with single packaged items in the bucket for easy storage. Use this link to get started.

HFS Thursday Zoom Rally - HFS Zoom Rally #132 was conducted this week with a good discussion on different scenario events laid out for the group to deal with. The basis was using Rule of Law, Without Rule of Law, and Matthew 5:38-48 “You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth. ' But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. It was an excellent group discussion through each scenario. Thanks to all who supported the evening event.

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.

5. From Frank Bergman - Slay News - CNN Data Expert 'Speechless' over Trump's 'Historic' Surge with Black Voters: 'Never Seen Anything Like This' - Slay News - While I watch the path forward to the 2024 Presidential Elections and monitor the information flow, I see a vision in my mind of a arena with a million MAGA warriors cheering as Orangeman walks through the gated doors to the arena. The crowd cheers beyond loudness and they see the arena floor full of bulls waiting on him to enter. They believe he can conquer anything and put their full trust in him. As he walks in, the bulls charge, the crowd cheers, and not a single spectator jumps the wall to offer support to his upcoming battle. I digress.


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.

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