Good morning! Happy July 4th!!!
Welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter (PENL) Edition #64. Thanks for being here on this holiday weekend. We respect the time you invest with Hope for Survival. I hope your 4th of July includes some reflection from the years in your life and celebrations from your past. What are your favorite memories? It chaps “my” nickers to realize many within our nation wish to eliminate this holiday and the history behind why we celebrate it. Los Angeles County, CA cancelled all celebrations. Yea, yea yea, I know, who wants to go to LA County, CA any way. (Kidding) Don’t get chapped from the start. Before we move on to the rest of the newsletter, we really need to stop and seriously give thanks for the blessings we have lived with in America. It is not a perfect land but we are truly blessed. Think about it as you read through the PENL.
It is indeed the 4th of July and a day to celebrate across America. I posted several articles this week on important contributions to our foundation and history. Check them out. Share with your grandchildren. Pick out a good Patriotic movie and watch as a family. We must take this time to educate our youth on our history before it vanishes before our eyes.
It is important that I mention the following because it is why I started the website titled Hope for Survival:
The foundation of Hope for Survival is my book, by the same title. I have had numerous follow up comments to how the book helped individuals and their families be prepared for the Covid-19 and ongoing riots and anarchy across America. 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. https://www.hopeforsurvival.com/?siteRevision=17
I want to give 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 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. It is my goal to develop preparers in to a team mindset in preparedness and to function and perform together in a preparedness atmosphere. I enjoy doing the training classes because it means more people are better prepared to establish and set up their plans going forward.
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.
Shout Out - I want to give a bit shout of thanks out to a new friend to Hope for Survival and myself. If you read the newsletter routinely lately or attended the last Thursday night Zoom meeting you heard him speak about Leadership. I want to thank Christopher Scott for his support and kind words about my book, Hope for Survival. Chris posted a link to the book on his website and named it the No 1 book available on Preparedness. Chris also posted this outstanding promotion of the book, Hope for Survival, to his Christopher Scott YouTube Page.
I'm quiet humbled and blessed to read or hear such kind words. Thank you Chris for your support. I look forward to our upcoming interview podcast to discuss the book and preparedness in general. Please consider checking Chris out on his M-F Podcast show. Chris broadcast from the Land of Brotherly Love outside of Philadelphia.

Special Guest Thursday, July 23 rd – Sheriff Mack. If you want to know the role of the sheriff in your county, this is the session you don’t want to miss. Festus will be conducting the interview live through the Zoom virtual application. A big thanks to Festus for pulling this together. Here’s some information on Sheriff Mack to help you get a better history and understand the importance of what this retired Sheriff has to share with us.
The July guest speaker will be Sheriff Mack from AZ. He will discuss his case at the Supreme Court and also discuss the roles and responsibilities of the Sheriff in your county.
Richard Ivan Mack is the former sheriff of Graham County, Arizona and a political activist. He is known for his role in a successful lawsuit brought against the federal government of the United States which alleged that portions of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act violated the United States Constitution. He won his case at the Supreme Court level.
Do some research on Sheriff Mach for more information.

Thoughts for the week –
We are recognizing one of my favorite holidays on the 4th of July. Baseball, hotdogs, apple pie, and Betsy Ross. Red, white, and blue. The flag of our nation flying over streets and front porches of homes. Citizens wearing their patriotic clothing as they wave small flags in their hands. I think back over my life and the many celebrations of July 4th. My childhood years remembering the parades, cotton candy and snow cones. Remember the large carnivals and circus acts? How about the July 4th celebrations promoted by President Reagan from the Statue of Liberty or Washington D.C. over our monuments. The bands and military units. The floats with young children waving their flags.
Later in life we celebrated America’s July 4th holiday amongst our military units, both on U.S. military bases or deployed locations. The U.S. territory of Guam held an annual parade celebrating America’s history. Then to England and Africa.
The day would culminate with massive firework displays across our great nation. From the backyards of small-town America to major cities around the nation, booms and clusters of stars and stripes filled the air. As the sounds grew louder our chest would fill out a bit larger. Oh how proud we felt being American. It had nothing to do with wealth or world dominance. It was pride and respect for our forefathers and our red, white, and blue. The land of the free and home of the brave. From the mountains to the flatlands, the monuments to the farmlands, we stopped to celebrate with our family, friends, and community. I miss those days and events.
If you miss these times and events, stop and relive these periods in life with me. Turn off your lights and make your screen large. Relive this great time in history.
I ask, how can anyone not love our great nation and what she has stood for over her historic history. We are blessed people to have lived in this great nation.
I wanted to share the lyrics to one of my favorite songs ever. They words are powerful and historic over the years. From nation to nation, decade through decade. The power of the lyrics with the music can be overwhelming to many. I, am one of the many. Cross your heart and sing-a-long if you desire. The words are below the flag video.
Lyrics to sing along if you desire.
[Francis Scott Key The Star-Spangled Banner]
Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light? What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight? O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, The bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night, That our flag was still there. Oh, say does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave? Oh say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave? O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
There was a lawyer once; his name was Francis Scott Key. He penned a song that I’m sure you’re aware of – you’ve seen it – it’s in most hymnals throughout our churches. It’s called, ‘The National Anthem’. It is our song as an American.
We go, however, to a ball game, we stand in our church services, and we sing the words of that song. And they float over our minds and our lips, and we don’t even realize what we’re singing. Most of us have memorized it as a child, but we’ve never really thought about what it means. Let me tell you a story.
Francis Scott Key was a lawyer in Baltimore. The Colonies were engaged in vicious conflict with the mother country, Britain. Because of this conflict, and the protractedness of it, they had accumulated prisoners on both sides. The American Colonies had prisoners and the British had prisoners. And the American government initiated a move. They went to the British and they said, “Let us negotiate for the release of these prisoners.” They said, “We want to send a man out to discuss this with you.” They were holding the American prisoners in boats about a thousand yards offshore. And they said, “We want to send a man by the name of Francis Scott Key. He will come out and negotiate to see if we can make a mutual exchange.”
On the appointed day, in a rowboat, he went out to this boat and he negotiated with the British officials. And they reached a conclusion that men could be exchanged on a one-for-one basis. Francis Scott Key, jubilant with the fact that he’d been successful went down below in the boats and what he found was a cargo hold full of humanity; men. And he said, “Men, I’ve got news for you. Tonight you are free.” He said, “Tonight, I have negotiated successfully your return to the Colonies.” He said, “You’ll be taken out of this boat; out of this filth; out of your chains.”
As he went back up on board to arrange for their passage to the shore, the Admiral came and he said, “We have a slight problem.” He said, “We will still honor our commitment to release these men, but it’ll be merely academic after tonight. It won’t matter.” And Francis Scott Key said, “What do you mean?” And he said, “Well, Mr. Key,” he said, “Tonight, we have laid an ultimatum upon the Colonies. Your people will either capitulate and lay down the colors of that flag that you think so much of, AND you see that Fort right over there – Fort Henry?” He said, “We’re gonna remove it from the face of the earth.” He said, “How are you gonna do that?”
He said, “If you will, scan the horizon of the sea.” And as he looked, he could see hundreds of little dots, and he said, “That’s the entire British war fleet.” He said, “All of the gun power, all of the armament is being called upon to demolish that fort. It will be here within striking distance in a matter of about two and a half hours.” He said, “The war is over. These men would be free anyway.” He said, “You can’t shell that fort.” He said, “That’s, that’s a large fort.” He said, “It’s full of women and children.” He says, “It’s predominantly not a military fort.”
He said, “Don’t worry about it.” They said, “We’ve left them a way out.” And he said, “What’s that?” He said, “Do you see that flag way up on the rampart?” He said, “We have told them that if they will lower that flag the shelling will stop immediately, and we’ll know that they’ve surrendered. And you’ll now be under British rule.” Francis Scott Key went down below and told the men what was about to happen. And they said, “How many ships?” He said, “Hundreds.” The ships got closer. Francis Scott Key went back up on top and he said, “Men, I’ll shout down to you what’s going on as we watch.” As twilight began to fall, and as the haze hung over the ocean as it does at sunset, suddenly the British war fleet unleashed. Bam!
He says, “The sound was deafening. There were so many guns that there were no reliefs.” He said it was absolutely impossible to talk or hear. He said, “Suddenly the sky, although dark, was suddenly lit.” And he says from down below all he could hear the men, the prisoners, saying was, “Tell us where the flag is. What have they done with the flag? Is the flag still flying over the rampart? Tell us.” One hour, two hours, three hours into the shelling every time the bomb would explode and it would be close to the flag, they could see the flag in the illuminated red glare of that bomb. And Francis Scott Key would report down to the men below, “It’s still up. It’s not down.”
The Admiral came and he said, “Your people are insane.” He said, “What’s the matter with them?” He said, “Don’t they understand this is an impossible situation?” Francis Scott Key said he remembered what George Washington had said. He said, “The thing that sets the American Christian apart from all other people in the world is he will die on his feet before he’ll live on his knees.” The Admiral said, “We have now instructed all of the guns to focus on the rampart to take that flag down.” He said, “We don’t understand something. Our reconnaissance tells us that that flag has been hit directly again and again and again and yet it’s still flying. We don’t understand that.” But he said, “Now, we’re about to bring every gun for the next three hours to bear on that point.”
Francis Scott Key said the barrage was unmerciful. All that he could hear was the men down below praying the prayer, “God, keep that flag flying where we last saw it.”
Sunrise came. He said there was a heavy mist hanging over the land, but the rampart was tall enough. There stood the flag, completely nondescript, in shreds. The flagpole itself was at a crazy angle, but the flag was still at the top.
Francis Scott key went aboard, and immediately went into Fort Henry to see what had happened. And what he found had happened was that that flagpole and that flag had suffered repetitious direct hits, and when hit had fallen.
But men, fathers, who knew what it meant for that flag to be on the ground – although knowing that all of the British guns were trained on it – walked over and held it up, humanly, until they died. Their bodies were removed and others took their place. Francis Scott Key said what held that flagpole in place at that unusual angle were patriots bodies. He penned the song, “Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light, what so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming. O’er rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that the flag was still there. Oh, say does that Star-Spangled Banner yet fly and wave, o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?”
The debt was demanded, the price it was paid.
This video is worth your time to checkout. The planning for the separation of America. Sounds crazy huh? Have you been following the split of California? The New California movement the past few years? They are using the same plan used by WV years ago when the Mountain State split from VA. Yes, WV and VA are two states. This is a bipartisan effort by the way.
I am working from the southern location this week and the Alabama humidity is kicking. How soon we forget the difference in weather this time of year. They city is much more active than when I left here at the start of the Covid-19 ordeal. Most folks are wearing mask and trying to practice state mandates and guidelines however I see many who are ignoring the recommended safe practices. Ms. Lucy and I had a busy week knocking out appointments in Huntsville and Birmingham, AL.
I had a dental appointment that had been postponed several months until now. I had to wear a mask to enter the facility and was asked to prepay my bill over the phone before entering the facility. The office was taking major steps to prevent any contact or as much as possible. The thing that caught my eye was the form I had to sign stating I would not hold the practice responsible for 14 days post appointment if I was diagnosed with a positive Covid-19 test. The dentist and tech were protected from germ contact with face shields and gloves. As the patient, I felt pretty-safe but had to imagine if this was the way of life going forward. How well will the average citizen handle this lifestyle? A voice in my head keeps asking me if things will ever return to what we knew as the norm. The other voice in my head laughs and says “very unlikely.”
A family member recently shared that she was contacted by the County School System to inform her of the coming public-school year schedule. Her 3rd grade child would only attend school on Tuesday and Friday. Get that? A two-week school-schedule. Do you realize how disruptive this is to the family? Both parents work in this home. Now they must prepare child-care for three days per week. They must also brace for the additional cost not previously planned for. One can only imagine the many additional issues this will create. Home tutoring. Which parent will adjust their schedule to provide tutoring? Loss of interaction between students. School functions. Meals and food for the children dependent on the school system. Employees of the county school system and how will they be impacted employment wise. Is this the new future?
I do believe God puts us in certain places at certain times for a reason. We do not know the future. Heck, often we do not know what the next hour brings. For me, the question remains “are we laying on the sofa sulking in our Twinkies” or “are we doing our best to prepare and protect our family?”
As I telework from our southern location, I get to hear the train whistles blowing four times per morning. Many of you probably do not remember the article I posted a few months back discussing the train whistles. Here is the link so you can reflect on same. For me, the train whistle reflects a time in history we should never forget. What’s the saying about “history repeating itself.” I am normally at my work location and not teleworking. I hear these train whistles and they remind me of the final ride. The trains that stopped and collected the Jews to be moved to concentration camps. You realize today in America we have a movement that would load us up and move us off to a concentration camp? Think about it.
Through all of this Covid-19 mask wearing stuff, I noticed Wilson and his friends are ignoring the mask order and the six foot social distancing requirements. Maybe he knows something we have missed.
I must tell you I’m still amazed at the number of people who are riding the waves and ignoring the massive waves within their view. How many signals does it take to get one’s attention? I have general conversations with people on the need to prepare their families for the unknown. How preparedness is the personal insurance policy to protect their family. I get the “you are one of them” look, as the conversation moves in another direction. I refuse to push or argue with anyone because it is their personal responsibility and choice. Right? I know we all get caught up in life and our daily responsibilities, but I have to shake my head when I sense folks have no clue to the world around them. I will do my best to help prepare anyone, however I do not have time to educate anyone on world events and preparedness. The clock appears to be approaching midnight and the train whistles are blowing loud and clear. The final ride to self-reliance is approaching. I am not making a “fear porn” threat. I’m simply saying it is approaching the time when those who are prepared will start separating more and more from the unprepared. Our nation is headed towards a major national disaster that appears to be unlike any we have ever faced before. Which side of the tracks will you be standing when the train departs?
I was watching a video sent to me last evening of a young black male spouting off at a local business owner. A young white female was standing behind the youth filming with two cell phone cameras. There appeared to be no one else around the youth or his camera lady, other than the business owner and his wife.
The business owner and wife had pulled down some paper flyers from their exterior business window advertising Black Lives Matter. When the business owner pulled it down, second later this youth and young girl swarmed the store front and the youth began shouting profanity and hate towards the male business owner. “Don’t you know who we is?” “Do you know what you are doing?” “Don’t you know ripping down the signs is racist and hate?” It went on and on for several minutes. The business owner and his wife was respectful but continued to move the posters from the store front to their vehicle parked in front of the business. After several minutes of hateful screaming the youth then video taped the vehicle that had the business name, address, and phone number. He then stated, “you may rip these down now, but when I hit send on this video, hundreds, if not thousands of my people will swarm your business and you will regret this choice.”
See how this is working? Do as I say or else you will pay the price. Think about that if you are confronted. Stand your ground respectfully but be prepared for possibly consequences in the aftermath. You may want to think about this and establish your actions in your thoughts. This is a no win situation that could escalate quickly. Video and messaging travels fast and you may have minimal time to recover and prepare for the next wave of youth and possible violence. Be safe.
Here is another example to my point about "thinking outside the box" and creating space and distance from the problem. My point isn't about being black or white. My point is we have a problem and what is the best way to disengage. Check out this story.
A white couple was arrested after at least one handgun was pulled on a Black woman and her daughters during a videotaped confrontation in a restaurant parking lot in Michigan, authorities said Thursday. Jillian Wuestenberg, 32, and Eric Wuestenberg, 42, were charged with felonious assault over the Wednesday incident, Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper said.
The confrontation was captured on cell phone video. (First clue)
Takelia Hill, who is black, told the Detroit Free Press that her daughter asked Wuestenberg to apologize after she bumped into her outside of a Chipotle in Orion Township, about 40 miles outside of Detroit, but Wuestenberg instead started to yell at her. The video shows Wuestenberg get in her car after the tense back and forth that included accusations of racism. Her husband, who was still outside the car, says, “Who the f---do you think you guys are?" to the family. One of the girls accuses him of being “racist” and “ignorant" and he walks back to the car.
“You can not just go around calling white people racist,” Jillian Wuestenberg says from the passenger seat. “White people aren't racist…I care about you.”
As their car pulls out, Hill taps the back window. She later told the Detroit News she thought the driver was going to hit them.
Wuestenberg then jumps out and pulls a gun on the family and screams for them to “Get the f--- back!”
One of the girls calls for someone to call the police.
Wuestenberg then lowers the gun, climbs into the passenger seat and the vehicle drives off.
“So this is America,” Hill wrote on Facebook afterward. “I’ve never in my life had a gun pulled out on me. … I’ve never felt so helpless in my life I’m so shaken up.”
“It is an unfortunate set of circumstances that tempers run high over, basically, not much of an incident,” Cooper said of the initial alleged spark that caused the confrontation.
Sheriff Michael Bouchard said the sheriff’s office has received threatening calls from people “picking sides” over the incident.
“We don’t see sides. We see facts,” he said. “There’s a lot of tension in our society, a lot of tension among folks and people with each other. I would just say this, we are asking and expect our police — and rightfully so — to deescalate every situation they possibly can, and we should be doing that. But I would say that needs to happen with us individually in our own lives and situations, that we interact with each other and deescalate those moments.”
Deputies seized two handguns from the Wuestenbergs when they were detained Wednesday night. Both have a concealed carry license.
It’s not clear if the Wuestenbergs have a lawyer who can comment for them.
The Associated Press contributed to this report.
Folks, this is why we talk about knowing the laws from state to state. Know your Sheriff and where he/she stands on the 2nd Amendment. Follow this link and scroll down to you find the imbedded video. Watch the video and get a good picture of what is happening here. Once you watch the video of the incident, go to the second link and watch how this was reported. Remember how I was explaining how the video is sent out and boom, your information goes viral.
I have been talking with several folks on their preparedness plans and measures. I often hear “the violence isn’t near me so I’m not overly worried. The local and federal authorities will get this under control soon. Really? Did I miss something?
How about this theme. The locals continue do to nothing, the Federal government is hesitant to push it to the federal level. What does that leave? The Patriots arm up and step out to defend their communities and guess what? Violence erupts. Guess what will probably happen then? The Federal government will then react and respond to go after the Patriots for defending their homes and communities. If you disagree, you may wish to go back and watch the past 90 days of video with riots and anarchy. These are liberal states and cities allowing these events. Did the react or respond to the past riots and protests? No. Let a conservative Patriot movement start defending things and pushing back the movement they have allowed to take place so far and you will screams from every liberal voice yelling for the Patriots to be brought to justice. Just a heads up to give this thought. I’m not saying don’t defend and protect. I’m just saying to be aware of secondary courses of action from the local, state, and federal level against the Patriot uprising.
Holiday threats. Specifically July 4th events. There is an email floating around throughout internet land stating Black Lives Matter and Antifa has the go ahead to step up their attacks around America. Malls, monuments, federal buildings, statues and even shooting at vehicles in transit. I can’t and won’t give this credibility. I know Homeland Security put out a bulletin on it as well. The possibility. So what does this mean for us as preparers? We stay outside the box. We don’t live in fear but we choose our locations and actions smart. This means trying to avoid locations that could be targets. We conduct visual assessments of our surroundings and disengage as needed. We don’t show up at the local July 4th parade wearing a MAGA hat or political t-shirt. I’m not against them at all. But we are talking about steps to take before leaving our home to help keep is safe and a hard target. If you see a demonstration take place, would you want to drive towards it? No. Would you drive towards it with a car covered in MAGA stickers? No. It’s not being unpatriotic. It’s being smart and putting distance between you and a threat. I know, some will say “I’m packing heat and can defend myself.” Cool, and I respect that. But, are you going to the event looking for trouble simply to pull a weapon and your day end in chaos? Think about it. We must pick and choose the right time and place if called up to defend and protect.
A great message from elected Sheriff Daniels in Clay County Florida. This is refreshing to hear. Again, this demonstrates to you the citizen, the importance of the County Sheriff. It also demonstrates the importance of knowing your candidates and who should get your vote and support. Check out this message.
I don't know if you listen or read prophetic messages. I leave the message to the receiver to make of it what they wish. This particular message has been getting lots of attention. It is worth a few minutes to hear.
Okay, my Patriot friends, the show must move on.
Preparedness News –
1. From Samantha Biggers – Backdoor Survival - https://www.backdoorsurvival.com/on-not-going-towards-the-trouble-staying-safe-during-civil-unrest-in-america - The theme of this article supports the practices I try to instill in preparers. Create your plans and keep your distance through “out of the box” practices. Separate yourself from the threat and problems by having your personal plans to protect you and your family. What are you waiting for? The time has arrived.
2. From Mom With a Prep - https://momwithaprep.com/25-pvc-projects-for-your-homestead/ - This is a great plan. PVC offers many excellent abilities to built different types of support mechanisms for your backyard garden or in small places and spaces. The PVC tubing would allow you to build up vs out, in apartments and small condo size spaces.
3. From Samantha Biggers – Backdoor Survival - https://www.backdoorsurvival.com/ford-river-stream/ - Excellent article and one to understand and print for your paper library. Water. If you don’t have it with you, you better know how to find it and cleanse it.
4.. From Rusty – True Prepper - https://www.trueprepper.com/canned-foods-survival/ Another good article to cross-check your resources with. Remember, longevity, protein, and taste.
5. From Preppers Survive - http://www.prepperssurvive.com/recharge-batteries-using-salt/- I have not tried this but I’m willing to learn. It may be a good weekend project to see the results.
Other News –
1. From John Whitehead – The Rutherford Institute - https://www.rutherford.org/publications_resources/john_whiteheads_commentary/americas_revolutionary_founders_would_be_anti_government_extremists_today
- Excellent commentary this week. I believe JW is on target with this. I think we all may be considered a bit extremist because of our solid belief and understanding of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
2. From Joel Pollack – Breitbart News - https://www.breitbart.com/2020-election/2020/07/01/rumors-swirl-supreme-court-justices-samuel-alito-clarence-thomas-may-retire/ - This could be good and bad. Especially if they retire before the election and the Democrats force the issue of waiting till the election to name new justices for the court. If a Democrat is elected, just like that, the Republicans lose the stronghold on the court. Granted, with recent votes by Justice Roberts, one must wonder if conservatives really even hold the majority.
3. From Tyler Durden – Zero Hedge - https://www.zerohedge.com/political/ghislane-maxwell-arrested-new-hampshire - Could this be the start of the big one we have been waiting for the past months? Will she talk? Will she live to talk? Time will tell. Maybe she will tell where Epstein really lives today. Wait, he’s dead, right? He was the guy declared dead in his jail cell but the picture of him on the hospital bed appeared to show him getting oxygen. Hmmm.
4. From Modern Survival Blog - https://modernsurvivalblog.com/politics/signs-that-reveal-who-your-political-enemies-are-in-your-neighborhood/ - I was recently having a conversation with a preparer who asked “how do I know who may or may not be willing to prepare and be a team member. This article is a good consideration. Do your homework and know the nonverbals providing you information to consider.
5. 5. From Michael Snyder – The Economic Collapse - http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/close-to-half-of-all-working-age-adults-in-the-united-states-do-not-have-a-job-right-now - This is part of the eventual looming problem for future debt repayment, and unfunded liabilities such as Social Security, Government pensions, military veterans benefits, and other individuals awaiting pensions from the Federal Government.
That's all my Patriot brothers and sisters.
Thanks much for your time to read the PENL and hanging with us at Hope for Survival for a few minutes. We all have different desires in news and what we read at different points in our day. Hopefully HFS has provided information to stimulate your thinking and the realities around us.
