Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #63


Good morning!

Welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter (PENL) Edition #63. Thanks for your time and for being here. We respect the time you invest with Hope for Survival and the Patriot Express Newsletter Fellow. In our world today it seems available time is critical and lacks in availability. We take that to heart when putting the newsletter together and the information we include in each edition.

The foundation of Hope for Survival is my book, by the same title. A reader and supporter to my book recently described it to another preparer as the “Bible of Preparedness.” I was extremely humbled by the statement and compliment. Through follow on support to “Preparers,” those who have read my book and then attend training or request support, it is fairly evident who has read the book and then follow the preparedness model I have offered in the book. If you would like to get a copy of Hope for Survival – How Food, Water, Shelter, and Security, Could Save Your Life, please follow this link.

I would like to welcome the newest 15 members to HFS and those who purchased a copy of Hope for Survival. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out and ask. Enjoy and thanks for your support. A big thanks to everyone for your emails, attendance to the Thursday evening and Saturday Preparedness class via the Zoom virtual platform. Thanks for your time to write and communicate with me at HFS. I appreciate your efforts much and the opportunity to chat on whatever topic you present for discussion. It is my goal to always provide beneficial training and information to help each person individually. Additionally, it is my goal to graduate individuals to a team mindset in preparedness and to function and perform together in a preparedness atmosphere.

Hope for Survival Mission – To help individuals and families get prepared.

Hope for Survival Goal – To help as many people as possible become self-reliant.

This edition has a lot of very good information relating to events we are witnessing in our nation today. Information and Disinformation; what to believe and not believe; campaigns against our current president; like him or not, and some history behind what we see today and what we could expect tomorrow.


Current numbers are Global: Infected – 6,595,485 Dead – 388,412. National: Infected – 1,902,101 Dead – 109,146. It appears the second wave is here as numbers are climbing in many states.

Thursday Zoom Rallies – HFS continues the Thursday HFS Zoom Virtual rallies weekly. We completed week 12 with a special guest speaker, Marine Corp and Iraqi Veteran spoke to the group on Leadership – Survival. A big thanks from HFS to Sir Chris for his time and knowledge on leadership. Please check out the Christopher Scott Podcast/Show and also his book, Common Sense. The book can be purchased from his website. Ms. Judy also presented an outstanding brief on Essential Oils. Great information.

Please consider supporting Chris and the other like-minded Podcast programs. These awesome Patriots, often make minimal to zero income for their time and simply continue forward daily because of their love for country. We see what is happening in our media and many conservative voices on the internet are being shadow banned or deleted without any notification and for no reason. We are being silenced. This is why I have tried very hard to stay non-political because getting preparedness information to help you become self-reliant is more important to me than spewing negative political news.

The Thursday Zoom group has been one of the most positive outcomes to date for HFS. It is very satisfying to see friendships being built and information and skills being taught and learned. We have a monthly guest speak from the outside and weekly group training topics presented by regular attendees to the group. To date, topics presented includes Medicinal Plants, Essential Oils, The top three animals to include in your preparedness plans for protein and Leadership and Survival. We will continue the Thursday Zoom Meetings after a short break for the 4th of July holiday. I also provide one or two Preparedness topics in addition to the guest presentations. Other information on Preparedness is provided and discussed after the guest speaker presentations. Currently the plan will invite future guest speakers to cover topics such as; planting and raising fruit trees, the Sheriff and the role of the Sheriff in your community, the truth about EMP’s and other topics. You can be a part of this group by emailing me your request to participate.

If you have interest in attending a Thursday evening “Hope for Survival” Zoom virtual training event please email me at to get on the distribution list for attendance information. The virtual conference room information will not be posted in open on the website for OPSEC reasons.

Additional training: I have sent out emails letting HFS readers know about doing preparedness classes. We have completed three classes to date, Risk Analysis and Management, Family Communication Planning, Preparedness 101 and this week’s class will be Preparedness 102. This is a new class not yet presented. Where Preparedness 101 is about you, Preparedness 102 is about team. The class description is:

Preparedness 102 is instructor led and prepares attendees to understand key roles in community team building, survival, and stability. This is a mid-level course that prepares students for the Preparedness 103 course. This course continues from individual skills taught in Preparedness 101 and now prepares attendees the processes they would use in team building and preparing a community for a possible collapse while maintaining some level of stability during a collapse and post-collapse.
