Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #64

Fellow Patriots,

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.

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.

HEALTH ALERT: Be aware of a new flu circulating in China at this time. Swine flu is spreading quickly. The Chinese are killing of hundreds of thousands swine which will impact the global market.

Thursday Zoom Rallies – HFS continues the Thursday HFS Zoom Virtual rallies weekly. We completed week 12 and now enjoy a summer break. We will resume the Thursday Zoom on July 9th.

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.

Recent interview with Sheriff Mack - Worth your time to watch.

Constitutional Sheriff's and Peace Officer Association - Consider joining and supporting Sheriff Mack and his organization

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. This is a great group and platform to learn and build friendships. 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 four classes to date and will continue a couple more classes after a brief summer break.

If you have any desire to take any of these classes, please drop me an email to get the Zoom room reserved. If you wish to donate for the training, feel free to do so by hitting the donate button. Or, you can purchase my book as well. All proceeds above cost to print goes to charity. Or you can gain entry with a smile. Pretty easy huh? Most importantly, you can attend for free with no donation or book purchase. Really.

Moving along …

We must make this brief public announcement to protect the innocent.
