Good evening/morning everyone. What a whirlwind of a week. Started last Saturday in Kentucky, then down to East, TN, then to Huntsville, AL, Birmingham, AL and back to Huntsville, then back to East, TN. These ol miles are getting tougher and tougher I must say, but the faithful Tundra just keeps on rolling forward. Amen to that. I think my backside has Good Year stamped on it. Speaking of Good Year, regardless of the mess our nation is in, Ms. Lucy and I are blessed and it has been a good year indeed. Thanks for being a big part of it.
It was an awesome week. Truly fantastic, I must tell you. Last Friday we traveled to Monticello, KY to do a full day of training on Saturday. Friday evening we enjoyed a burger burn with the host family. It was so enjoyable hanging around the dinner table chatting and laughing together. My ribs hurt from laughing. It was nice to catch up with this family since our last personal visit was when we met at Heritage Life Skills down in Waynesville, NC the previous year. On Saturday the day started very early with final equipment set up and making sure the donuts passed the quality test. (Smile)
The training event was great. Really super. Surrounded by a beautiful farm and animals, lots of green and a little thunder from time to time. It couldn’t have been scripted better. So much better than indoor training I believe. The host family put this thing together and pulled off a great weekend. Ms. Lucy and I had a blast and we got to meet some great new friends and preparers from across Kentucky. One family traveled about three hours each way to attend about 8 ½ hours of training. Thank you for hanging in there through the day.
I know some of you are waiting to read my comments about the food. It was AWESOME!!! Oh my goodness. I kid you not, I thought I was going to need one of the EMT attendees to revive me after lunch. Brisket, smoked turkey, pulled pork, baked beans, slaw, pinto beans, macaroni and cheese, cornbread (white or yellow), fruit, cherry cheesecake, pound cake baked with a peach butter, …. And then another four hours of training. Oh my, it was so good. This is just a sampling of Ms. Lucy’s plate.
Okay, it was actually my plate. Ha
We left Monticello, KY feeling we had gained new family and yet we left them behind until next time. . A big thanks to the host family for opening up their home and sharing their family with us for the weekend. Life is blessed indeed
If you would like to do an event like this in your area just shoot me an email.
Okay, on to this week’s newsletter.
Welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter (PENL) Edition #69. Thanks for being here. Thank you for your time invested with Hope for Survival. To those of you who come back week after week, month after month. Thank you very much. My desire is to provide you with a mix of thoughts and information across the preparedness spectrum. That does not necessarily have to be how to grow potatoes or bag potato chips. Preparedness covers many areas of your life that you could be impacted by decisions or events from another source. Though the topics can be deep and troubling, I try to add a bit of humor when possible to keep the boat above water.
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 recent Covid-19 and ongoing riots and anarchy across America. 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
When deciding how to build a framework for HFS it had to include multiple areas one could obtain information, opportunity, and training. Hope for Survival is built around the book, with the PENL, the HFS website containing over 325 articles and folders set up for specific topics, online and in-resident training, and Zoom rallies conducted each Thursday evening. It is important to build a foundation with the individual and then branch out to team building. Why? Who covers your back while you sleep? Who protects you while you work in your garden or tend to livestock or work on your ham radio antenna?
Hope for Survival Mission – To help individuals and families get prepared.
Hope for Survival Goal – Help people as possible become self-reliant.
Those who attend the Thursday evening Zoom preparedness rally using a virtual platform are making the most of available time and available information and working groups to better prepare. You too can be a part. I appreciate everyone for their efforts 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 also my goal to develop preparers into 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. I can’t put it any plainer than to say, your odds of surviving what is headed our way drops drastically if you are not prepared to some degree and you are self-reliant and part of a team.
Another big thank you to everyone who purchased my book and to the few who purchased multiple copies to give friends. HFS readers purchased over 50 books in the past two weeks. This is great for the buyer because I hope it is the first step in converting another mindset and it’s great because it means more funding will be going to the local food bank to feed the hungry. Thank you so much. We appreciate your support. Thank you.
I would like to welcome our newest HFS members from the great state of Kentucky. It was great to meet you on Saturday. Please make yourself at home and email me if you have questions.
Ms. Lucy is doing well and still recovering daily from surgery. She had her two-week checkup this morning in Birmingham, AL and needs another six weeks for additional monitoring. She still has some continued blurriness so hopefully more time will fix this problem for her. Thank you all for your notes, emails, and prayers. We appreciate it much.
Before moving along, I would like to wish my brother from another mother and my side kick on Blueberry Hill a special and blessed birthday from HFS and the HFS members who know who I’m talking about. You may be getting old-er, but your still upright and kicking and that is what matters. Thanks so much for your support and contributions behind the scenes and for keeping me on the rails from time to time.
Hope for Survival Podcast – One of the areas HFS provides training opportunities is through the HFS YouTube channel. We currently have about 22 short training type Podcast on the Hope for Survival YouTube channel covering numerous topics of interest to help in your preparedness planning. You can find podcast on canning chicken, risk management, gun safety, home and personal defense, preparedness training, driving security, interviews with like-minded individuals and other topics. Bring a friend or family member and check out the HFS YouTube page. If you like what you viewed, hit “like” and consider subscribing so you are notified when I post something new.
You can visit the Hope for Survival YouTube page at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxzpwOcydroW96rFBd2Vvw?view_as=subscriber
Thursday Zoom Rallies – HFS continues the Thursday HFS Zoom Virtual rallies weekly. We completed week 17 with a great Zoom meeting which was supported by many. This week’s rally provided a weekly news update, a few preparedness briefs on tactical body armor and optics. Once the short briefs are completed, we have our weekly “Chatter that Matters” session with the attendees
Special Guest in August – HFS has secured a Thursday evening Zoom appearance from Bob Griswold from Ready Made Resources. He will be talking about preparedness and specifically about the importance of communication and night vision equipment. Many of you may recognize Mr. Griswold from his appearances on the Dave Hodges Show, Glenn Tate 2.0 Podcast and Doug Hagmann podcast. Mr. Griswold is an experienced world traveler in some of the darkest places on earth. We look forward to him spending time with Hope for Survival. I will continue to put forth my best efforts to bring in nationally known voices to offer top level information on specific subjects.
Special Guest in September – HFS security a Thursday evening Zoom appearance from Jonathan Hollerman at Grid Down Consulting and author of Survival Theory. Jonathan is also a key voice on the Congressional EMP Study and Review Board. A date has not been scheduled but it will probably be late September. This is a great opportunity for HFS followers to hear key information on the status of our national EMP program and status. Jonathan is a straight shooter and you will have a clear understanding of the EMP threat. A big thanks to Jonathan for accepting the invite from HFS. Jonathan was scheduled to be the Heritage Life Skills 2020 guest speaker. I know many of the regular HFS followers already read Survival Theory and if you haven’t, I would highly recommend the book. It can be purchased at this link. https://www.griddownconsulting.com/books
If you have interest in attending a Thursday evening “Hope for Survival” Zoom virtual training event please email me at email@example.com 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 access 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 as time permits.
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.
Ding, Ding, Ding...."Attention HFS visitors..... Opinions shared in this newsletter are just that, opinions, and nothing more. Read at your own risk. The owner and author of this site are 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.

When all else fails… Keep the faith and always have Hope."
Thoughts for the week –
This a late submission to the newsletter however I felt it should be the first article posted because of the weight it carries and the message. This was posted today around noon by Retired General Flynn who has been carved up, financially ruined, and pretty much crushed by the nation and government he spent his life serving. Read his words and think hard about what he is saying. This should answer the question many continue asking and pondering. When is the time....https://www.westernjournal.com/exclusive-gen-flynn-letter-america/
We are witnessing a vicious assault by enemies of all that is good, and our president is having to act in ways unprecedented in decades, maybe centuries.
The biblical nature of good versus evil cannot be discounted as we examine what is happening on the streets of America.
It’s Marxism in the form of antifa and the Black Lives Matter movement versus our very capable and very underappreciated law enforcement professionals, the vast majority of whom are fighting to provide us safe and secure homes, streets and communities.
When the destiny of the United States is at stake, and it is, the very future of the entire world is threatened.
As Christians, shouldn’t we act? We recognize that divine Providence is the ultimate judge of our destiny. Achieving our destiny as a freedom-loving nation, Providence compels us to do our part in our communities.
It encourages us in this battle against the forces of evil to face our fears head-on. No enemy on earth is stronger than the united forces of God-fearing, freedom-loving people.
We can no longer pretend that these dark forces are going to go away by mere prayer alone. Prayers matter, but action is required.
This action is needed at the local, state and federal levels. Action is also required in the economic, media, clerical and ecclesiastical realms.
Decide how you can act within your abilities. Stand up and state your beliefs. Be proud of who you are and what you stand for. And face, head-on, those community “leaders” who are willing to allow dark forces to go beyond peaceful protests and destroy and violate your safety and security.
Churches and houses of worship must return to normal. We invite everyone of goodwill to not shirk their responsibilities and instead act in a fraternal fashion. If for no other reason or with no other ability, act in a spirit of charity.
We cannot disrespect or disregard natural law along with our own religious liberties and freedoms.
I am witnessing elderly people lose their connection to all that is good in their lives: connections to their faith, their families and their individual freedoms, especially the simple act of attending church, something they’ve been doing for decades.
Let us not be intimidated or fear those who cry out that we are in the minority; we are not.
Good is always more powerful and will prevail over evil.
However, evil will succeed for a time when good people are divided from each other and their personal lives — children away from their teachers, preachers from their congregations, customers from their local businesses.
America will never give in to evil. Americans work together to solve problems.
We do not and should not ever allow anarchy and the evil forces behind it to operate on any street in our nation.
No one should have to fear for their very life because some dark, disturbed force is challenged by the very essence of what America stands for.
We are “one nation under God” and it is our individual liberties that make us strong, not liberties given to our government. Our government has no liberty unless and until “we the people” say so.
God bless America and let’s stand by everything that was and is good in our lives, in our communities and in our country.
Otherwise, America as the true North Star for humanity will cease to exist as we know it.
Serving. Serving our faith. Serving our great nation. Serving our family. Serving one another. Serving without being called upon. Respect. Ethics. Morality. Integrity. Self-respect. Where and when did we go wrong? The train derailed the track at some point, and no one noticed enough to call a national 911. Did the train get carjacked and we missed it? Did we stop caring enough about one another and those we love around the same point our moral guard rails started falling? What happened to self-respect and respect for others? When did we go from a “we and team” nation to the “I and me” priority above all? We can flash back to Sept 11, 2001 or 911, less than 20 years ago and look how far we have fallen to date. Our youth dropped everything to run to the recruiting stations to enlist and go off to war. Now, military services, police, fire, and other needed service organizations are below their recruitment numbers and it is not getting better. Why? Think about it, in less than 20 years we have transitioned from a red, white, and blue nation motivated to take on the world to a burn the flag and nation until we get what we want.
I wonder, is there a correlation between morality and serving? Are we instilled through life with a foundation of morals which has built in qualities to serve? If this is the case then we would naturally believe one would require a solid and structured moral framework in the home and school, right? Is this the answer to the moral decay from home to nation? Some may argue the removal of God from the home and schools started the decline. I’m not here to argue this point. I would tend to believe so but I also know good solid American citizens who are not people of faith and still live within the laws of the land. I know some who would argue the education system let us down with a left leaning agenda in practice, theory and implementation across the nation. Why? How could the entire nation miss a 30 to 40-year transition from red, white, and blue education to the anti-American Socialist style agenda that we are witnessing in the streets today. The worst of it is not a single voice within our elected government is voicing concern or dismay where this is headed. Oh, forgive me, I did hear a squeak or two slip out during one of the hard-core intense Congressional hearings shown on C-SPAN maybe.
We slept through the transition to this point and I’m not convinced we won’t also sleep through the remaining transition until we reach the point of installing a Socialist government in the US of A. Disagree? Tell me, what are you doing to this point to stop it or change it? Not someone else. You. This is the point I was trying to make to others last week. Someone said, “we can organize and set up communications and security.” Yes, we can, but we have not. That is my point. Just like with a plan. If you have not practiced your plan to ensure it works, it is worthless. Agree? We play how we practice. We are at a point in our nations circumstances where nothing can be counted on or stated as part of our plan unless we know it works or something we have used and know it works, or it has been tested and adjusted to meet the goals. I hope this makes sense. We cannot assume anything. It must be.
One of the top conversations and questions I hear from Patriots involves the number of folks still on the Q wagon and who believes they will witness the U.S. Federal Justice System bring down top leaders serving or previously serving in leadership roles throughout the U.S. Government. Personally, I do not go out of my way to keep up with Q because I do not have time. I believe these are hours many could be stacking canned food, figuring out how to filter water and protect their family. No offense intended. As great as it may seem, I don't think a lot of thought goes in to the ramifications of this wish or hope. I wondered across this article at https://townhall.com/columnists/wayneallynroot/2020/08/02/does-anyone-have-the-courage-to-indict-obama-n2573537 by Wayne Allen Root, titled Does anyone have the courage to indict Obama. This is a good article and lays out good evidence to why this will never happen on the current path. Look at the destruction taking place around America in Democrat controlled areas and the willingness of the state leadership and Democratic officials at the Federal level to defy their tax paying citizens and the President of the United States. Why? Could this be a job audition for the next Democratic controlled White House? Ask yourself, name a corrupt person with so much hatred for our great nation who would unleash and support such destruction and racism towards the people and the Constitution who these auditioning leaders would be working for as the next President? It's not Joe Biden. It is sickening to see how much these same individuals continue to prosper in our great nation while hating what we stand for.
This story caught my attention this week. When teaching classes or having discussions on analyzing information I talk about reading, gathering, and collecting information and if it isn’t useful today, then filing it away for a future date or until other stories surface that could bring a story together. It must have caught Festus attention as well since he pushed the Zerohedge article to me. This one is a good example. It may or may not connect but it has enough close comparisons to keep it near the surface for a while. This is another story that hasn’t made the news…yet. A while back when a story https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/01/us/drones-FAA-colorado-nebraska.html surfaced around the Colorado region about a fleet of UFO looking drones flying in a formation at night. It bounced around the news for a day or two then fell off the radar. So, this article was posted at Zerohedge https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/mysterious-drone-swarm-breached-secure-airspace-over-largest-nuclear-power-plant-us and if true, this is a great concern. When I read the article my first thought took me back to the story in the United Kingdom several months ago where mysterious drones took over London’s major airports causing delays and grounding of hundreds of flights daily. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-sussex-46623754#:~:text=Tens%20of%20thousands%20of%20passengers,repeatedly%20flying%20over%20the%20airfield.&text=An%20airline%20source%20told%20the,at%20least%2019%3A00%20GMT. – These incidents in the United Kingdom happened about 17 months ago and one must wonder if they are connected. Drones are great weapons when used by the good guys, however when in the wrong hands it can be lethal and destructive. This is a video I shared several months ago that supports my statement above.
If this doesn't wake one up, nothing will.
As each day passes and we continue to spin in amazement to what is coming next, we must remain grounded and put things in perspective to truths and untruths. I know one topic that seems to always enter conversations and I’m asked my thoughts about is Covid-19 vaccinations. This article was part of this week’s emails sent to me via Ms. Kim Fletter who is out pounding the wires and networks searching for truths and topics to keep us informed. You can go find this topic at https://www.politico.com/news/2020/07/30/coronavirus-vaccine-distribution-388904 - Now, I do consider the source, Politico, and realize the weight of the content may not pass the toilet paper and water test, however, this is fairly close to the story line carried by other sources.
My question to you is, have you decided what your decision will be when confronted to take the vaccination or not? How much food, fuel, and medication to you have put back? What if those receiving the vaccination are handed a proof of vaccination card that will be used to enter grocery stores, purchase fuel, or get into a clinic or hospital for a doctor’s appointment? What if your child or grandchild becomes very sick and you need medical attention, will you then search out the vaccination so you can gain access to help your child or grandchild? If your answer is no, I will not get or take the vaccination on any account, then how well prepared are you for the long sustainment needed to survive without any institutional support? Does it now make better sense why the word “team” is so important? How about why “skills” are so important? I’m not posting this as a scare tactic or anything of the nature. I simply know how many voices I heard say “no” I will not take a vaccination and my question is how well are you prepared and for how long of a period?
The CDC will be tracking side effects of post-vaccinations and a few other minor items while the military will handle the distribution, logistics, and issuing the vaccinations. Sounds almost like a medical thriller type movie, huh? A nation locked down in the grip of a national pandemic where people are dying in droves and the government is moving quickly to lead the effort to save as many Americans as possible. Exciting. I would probably watch it. Well, actually we all are watching it except the script is a bit different. We have the lockdown and we are told we are in a pandemic. People are dying but not in droves.
The government is moving quickly but not to lead an effort to save people but instead to create a vaccination. We must have a vaccine, right? If this pandemic is so deadly, as promoted, why wouldn’t we immediately use something, anything, we know would save a life? Like, HC-Q. I still can’t figure out how the Covid-19 virus is so selective and only impacts folks who are not attending protest, rallies, riots, and anarchist. Must have been in the fine print on the back of the box. I missed it. Wonder why we never heard anything about the urgent need to vaccinate all the refugees coming across our southern border for multiple years, with no vaccinations. They also didn’t appear to need vaccinations when entering government provided shelters, transportation, or food lines. Matter of fact, the government bussed them to their new communities without vaccinations. Even bigger is the refugee children entered our public-school system across America with no vaccination requirements. Why is that? As our current President would say, “this is a bigly problem” don’t you think? Just saying…
This is a great article and summary provided by Festus. As he states in the synopsis, he and I have discussed this specific topic for several years now. I think we both would agree with the points and objectives made in the article. Good job Festus for bringing to light the key points everyone needs to catch and understand here. This is from Mike Adams at Natural News - https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-07-19-black-lives-matter-terror-cells-will-carry-out-flash-mob-killing-sprees-civil-war.html –
Festus summary says: Some interesting observations/opinions are a very important topic. We have discussed this off and on for a long time. A couple notable quotes:
A modern civil war will be decentralized, rapid in its deployments and organized using pro-terrorism online platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, all of whom are run by the very same lunatic left-wing criminals who will be waging attacks against America. (Facebook and Twitter are essentially terrorist platforms now that censor all pro-America voices.)
Essentially, what they’re describing are “flash mobs” of armed left-wing militants who coordinate a plan on Facebook or Twitter — no doubt with the full support of Zuckerberg and Dorsey — and then spring into action, carrying out mass murder on an intended target, then vanishing into the cities.
Likely targets include:
Malls and shopping centers
The homes of conservatives, patriots and journalists
Private homes of law enforcement
Daycare centers and schools that cater to White people
The Foreign Policy analysis specifically points out that civil war militants may unleash, “occasional high-value terror attacks against soft and hard targets.” Soft targets are malls, movie theaters, schools and other places where innocent Americans are trying to go about their daily lives. It’s also not difficult to see Black Lives Matter or NFAC terrorists blocking a highway and going car to car, shooting all White people. (All the more reason to carry a capable rifle in your vehicle, where legal to do so. Aim for something larger than 9mm. A great choice for a vehicle gun is a 7.62×39 pistol, stuffed into a backpack that does not look “tactical.”)
Hard targets are more like government buildings, power grid substations, jails, airports and other targets that are more difficult to destroy. They can also include railways and bridges, by the way, and we’ve already seen Left-wing activists attack trains and railways over the last couple of years. We should expect left-wing terrorists to try to destroy America’s infrastructure along with mass killings of Whites and Christians.
So, Left of Bang thinking and planning are high priority actions........... Good job Festus. My advice to anyone reading this is to ensure they get outside the box, work harder at being the sheep dog and protect the flock as best as possible. Be a hard target 24 x 7. You may be 500 miles from a threat but why not practice a routine now to get used to it?
This is a must. I know this extended the newsletter a bit longer but information is building and news worthy to share with you. If you read nothing else in this article, you need to see the charts included with it. Festus sent this to me earlier today and I had to find room within this weeks edition to share it. Check this out; https://www.zerohedge.com/political/destroying-western-medias-swedish-public-health-disaster-narrative-two-simple-charts
Here is some of the initial commentary to the article and it in itself is worthy of reading.
The opening quotes to this article are good:
"In order to control public opinion of the masses, the ruling class should “regiment the public mind every bit as much as an army regiments [soldiers’] bodies."
– Edward Bernays, Propaganda (1928)
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. ...We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. ...In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons...who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”
– Edward Bernays, Propaganda (1928)
Thanks Festus for sending this to me. Appreciate it.
On a final note for the week, I think this sums it up pretty good. Thanks ECG for sharing this on another platform.
Okay, my Patriot friends, the show must move on.
Preparedness News –
1. From Rusty – True Prepper - https://www.trueprepper.com/canned-foods-survival/ - We never have enough checklist for our paper library. These are great for cross-checking our own resources against or using to add to them.
2. From Prepper Website - https://www.prepperwebsite.net/ - I have not checked this site out so I can’t speak for it. But, I know many folks are in a constant search to find like minded preparers to work with in a town or community. This site is supposed to be just that. Just be careful and do some homework. A smile and MRE doesn’t pass the “you can be my friend during the collapse” test.
3. From Grows Like Crazy - https://www.growlikecrazy.com/ - I have listened to several podcast on this product and just ordered some for myself. Testimonies state the product is great for fruit trees and gardens and is obvious in tree growth, fruit production and taste. May be something to consider.
4. From SELCO – The Organic Prepper - https://www.theorganicprepper.com/selco-new-normal-survival-mode/ - I would be seriously concerned at this point that anyone who claims to be a preparer or prepper is still stuck in normal mode based on all the information surrounding us. If you are stuck in the normal mode and moving forward to be better prepared, please email me.
5. From Laura Neverman – Common Sense Home - https://commonsensehome.com/foods-to-stock-up-on/ -Another good list of suggestions to consider for your food plan and emergency checklist of items. Remember, buy what you like and you will eat. A pantry full of cans does you no good if everyone runs from the dinner table. Right?
6. From Jibin – Survival Cache - https://survivalcache.com/survival-uses-aluminum-can/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+SurvivalCache+%28Survival+Cache%29 – It is amazing how much aluminum you can find simply walking a ditch line for one mile. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
7. From Tara Doddrill – New Life on a Homestead - https://www.newlifeonahomestead.com/indoor-medicinal-herbs/ - This is a good article to print and file in your paper library for future use. TD offers some good advice on medicinal herbs and ones to grow inside if possible. This would be great in areas where seasonal weather could impact the ability to grow outside.
Other News –
1. From John Whitehead – The Rutherford Institute - https://www.rutherford.org/publications_resources/john_whiteheads_commentary/one_nation_under_house_arrest_how_do_covid_19_mandates_impact_our_freedoms - This is another great contribution from JW on our ever decreasing freedoms. It seems for every 100 blinks of our eyes, another freedom has eroded us and will impact us over and over again.
2. From Ken Jorgustin – Modern Survival Blog - https://modernsurvivalblog.com/politics/george-soros-money-behind-the-marxist-takeover-of-america/ - Many folks recognize the name of George Soros however few really know who he is. Those of us who are old enough may remember back to around 2008/2009 when a young Glenn Beck used to hold the 4 pm hour on Foxnews and he used to chalk board much of what we are seeing today. He used to talk about a guy he called “Mr Spooky” who was/is George Soros.
3. From John Rubino – Dollar Collapse - https://www.dollarcollapse.com/big-city-mayors-paralyzed/ - Interesting to see this in writing. I have heard this story before. Over and over. Democratic mayor and leadership. Failed city and state. History repeating itself yet people do the same thing over and over. If you are four feet tall you weren’t meant to dunk a basketball no matter what angle you approach it.
4. From Bob Rodgers – The Preppers Will - https://prepperswill.com/the-black-plague/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=the-black-plague – Funny the media has not mentioned this yet. It started surfacing a few weeks or maybe a couple months back out of a Chinese area of operations. I noted it in the Patriot Express News Letter several weeks back under Health Alerts. Lets hope this stays across the big pond and doesn’t arrive to our shores or we will have another huge problem.
5. From the Guardian - https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jul/13/china-floods-wartime-measures-brought-in-to-tackle-worst-deluge-in-decades – As I mentioned in last weeks PENL Edition #68, China is on the brink of major and devastating consequences to a large portion of their nation. Flooding could kill as many as 40 to 50 million citizens and the number is growing as rains continue to fall. This could have not only regional consequences but global as well.
That's all my Patriot brothers and sisters. Stay alert and strong.
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. It is important for you to keep your feet and minds grounded as the world continues towards an unknown destination. Keep the faith and continue doing great things for yourself and others. Keep the emails flowing. Bring new friends and help spread the word on Preparedness. I appreciate you sharing the great things you are doing with your plans and progress forward. Keep charging ahead.
Prayers - Please keep our great nation, our elected leaders, military and first responders in your thoughts and prayers. Please pray for individuals losing their jobs and who didn't prepare in advance. We should pray for the families who lost their jobs and facilities burned during the riots. Please pray for the citizens in China who are enduring horrible flooding and crop loss. We should also pray for the citizens in Lebanon who just endured a tragic terrorist attack. Last count is over 100 dead and 1000 injured. I pray for each and every one of our Patriots. May we all be protected from the growing evils surrounding and attacking our families daily. May we pray for all the blessings and things in life to be thankful about and continued hope for revival around the world.
Amen. Thank you.
Keep charging and have a safe week. Always remember, we are blessed people.
