Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #274

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #274. Thanks for stopping by for this week's edition of the PENL. Are you having a safe and fantastic Independence week of celebration and family fun? What is your favorite part of this particular holiday? Fireworks and Patriotic music? Grilling your favorite foods? Parades, sirens, and marching bands? How about reading a story to your grandkids about the true meaning of Independence Day? I'm going to cop out and tell you I would pick all the above. Enjoy and with the Lord's blessings I will see you next week.

HFS will be relying on technology again this week to get this version of the newsletter out to you Friday evening. I will load it around noon on Wednesday and then be headed out with Ms. Lucy, kids, and grandkids for a few days on a N.C Lake in Western NC. We will be connecting with another HFS family at the same location. I'm not a vacation kind of person but I am looking forward to this break. I do hope the temperature in the NC mountains will be a tad cooler.

Ms. Lucy and two of our grandkids are out picking blueberries as I write this portion of the newsletter. Not planned, but it is becoming tradition it seems for one or more of our grandkids to be visiting at the point of picking a series of blueberries. Let me tell you it is much appreciated. It is pretty neat to pull up pictures from the past few years and see the blueberry bushes grow along with the grandkids.

Several studies and reports in 2024 state more people are preparing than ever before. Color, sexual orientation, age, doesn't seem to matter based on the reports. I have a bit of a problem with these reports because saying you prepare is a large and vast statement. How do you prepare? What do you prepare? Why do you prepare? Yes, having a 72-hour preparedness package is preparing, however it is not the same as one who understands the depth of our problems and prepares for six months, a year, or longer. Being told to prepare is entirely different than understanding why and doing it. Agree? Those who believe a bucket of prepackaged meals is a food plan vs those who build a plan to augment dehydrated or freeze-dried meals with fresh garden vegetables, canned foods or other items heavier in vitamins separates the level of preparers. My point is reading post-apocalypse books and eating freeze dried Twinkies is not preparing. Now is buying a box of ammo and no extra food every pay day. Bad plan unless you have accepted your life span will be shortened.

Here is a good sermon from Liberty Fellowship in Montana. Son in law Allen Baker is filling in for regular paster Chuck Baldwin. Good message. (Thanks Festus, for this submission.)

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.

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 - Conspiracy or not?

At this point, do you ever chuckle when you hear a discussion on conspiracy theories? Yea, I understand that one. Years ago, it was frustrating when trying to explain a conspiracy to a close-minded person. I would think, why is it so hard to see what is going on. Trying to get a person over the simple barrier of completely trusting a government entity of elected strangers who is controlling our life. When this is how one has lived their life, it is understandable but one would eventually think something would happen to perk their interest.

Clayton Morris at Redacted Podcast had Derek Broze from the Pyramid of Power as a guest to discuss the amazing work Derek has put together on this website linked below. I have watched all sessions and seasons in their entirety. This is a great compilation of information and amazing effort to package all of this together. This is definitely worth your time to educate yourself A-Z, CIA to Rockefellers, Prisons, Big Pharma, and the rest. Each session is 30 minutes or less. I believe was a 10-year project putting it together. Excellent product.

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.


Bravo Echo Out,
