Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #76

Fellow Patriots,

Welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter (PENL) Edition #76. Thanks for stopping by to spend time checking out the newsletter. Ms. Lucy and I appreciate you stopping by each week to spend part of your day with us.

It has been a great week here in North Alabama with Ms. Lucy. A few days to feel normal. Is that possible? We had a great week and a chance to spend time with our Patriot friends here where Hope for Survival all started. It was very nice to see like minded friends where our relationship met and developed as they each started preparing years ago. We got to hear great individual stories of preparedness growth, plans, and concerns about the welfare of our great nation. We appreciate these folks, like all other Patriots, who support our mission with HFS to be prepared and help others get prepared. Several of our Thursday evening HFS Zoom friends showed up to spend time with us and it was awesome. Thanks to all our Huntsville Patriot family. May you be protected and blessed in this journey ahead. Just remember, “when the tide is high its time to pull the boat oars out of the water and turn the motor on. Know what I’m saying?

At HFS, we are very excited and happy to announce we just went back to the printer for a 4th printing of our book, Hope for Survival. We give a big thanks to our Patriot brother down south who purchased 17 copies for some upcoming preparedness classes he is conducting near Atlanta soon. He is helping spread the word of preparedness and self-reliance. Thanks, brother.

If you are a guest or newcomer to the HFS journey, please check out this link for additional information offered through HFS. I have removed the weekly newcomer information and guest guide and the link takes you to an article I just posted for all this information to welcome and help you take advantage of all the HFS information and material provided. I have added this feature to allow PENL regular readers less script to wake through weekly and it shortens the overall PENL product several pages of text.

HFS Road Rally - Ms. Lucy, Festus, and I will be in Waynesville, NC on October 3rd, 2020 at 1 pm, to rally up with fellow Patriots and HFS supporters. Many of these fine Patriot brothers and sisters are HFS Thursday evening Zoom participants who not only taught classes to the group, but also learned Preparedness over the past 23 weeks. They have developed bonds and friendships together. As we close out summer, it is nice to have this opportunity break bread and spend some time together. Patriots are traveling from five different states for this rally. We are blessed. If you would like to participate and take part in this rally please email me at We would love to see you during this stop in Waynesville, NC. The location will be provided through email contact. The location is not being disclosed for OPSEC reasons.

Thursday Zoom Rallies – HFS continues the Thursday HFS Zoom Virtual rallies weekly. We completed week 24 with a great Zoom meeting. We also covered news from the week, some preparedness topics and answered questions on the topics. Once the short briefs are completed, we have our weekly “Chatter that Matters” session with the attendees.

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 access information will not be posted in open on the website for OPSEC reasons.

Moving along …

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

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 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. 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."

Let’s move along and get to the news...

Thoughts for the week

I think it's about time to announce and promote my membership in the A.A.R.P...Angry, Armed, Ready, Patriot. (Borrowed from Doug Hagmann) How about you? Where do yo stand?


I will be on the road most of next week providing preparedness support to fellow Patriots, but I do not foresee any issues keeping the website operational and all normal postings and Zoom meetings should occur without issues. If something comes up to cause cancellation or delays, I will let you know.


The clock is ticking and we are watching the calendar move forward to the US National election for the next President of the United States. Sides are divided and voices for each side are growing louder and louder. What will tomorrow bring? How will this impact you and your family? Not just who wins the election but the days weeks, and months following the election. Taxes. Supreme Court seats opening up and the court decisions looming on critical topics important to us. Debt. Will someone finally speak loudly of the looming debt before us? Do you realize each citizen breathing air in America currently owes roughly $100,000 in debt? How about the status and future of our education system? Our history is being erased before our eyes. Morality? How far over the cliff will we go as a nation before our morals bring us down? Churches are emptying and the strength and impact of the church on society is dwindling to silence. Parental consent and control of their children has been depleted to minimal ability to voice right and wrong to their children.

Everyone has feelings that must be heard, except the working class, tax paying, moral citizens of this nation are being silenced. If you speak your adult opinion you are labeled a racist and may then face your own battle within the system. If you think we are out of control today, imagine how minimal our efforts and voices will be in the near future. If you haven’t determined where your final line will be, you may wish to do so soon.

Ahhh, one of my favorite topics. NOT. What could that be? Q. Yea, I know. Some may believe I've been hard on the Q followers and I'm very anti-Q. The truth is, that is partially right. Not because I know something millions failed to see. I'm not anti-Q, I just used past training and 40 yeas of experience when I use proven applications to information gathering. Wilson, what on earth am I talking about. Oh no, Bravo Echo is chasing flying squirrels again. Well, not really. Hear me out.

In past months during conversations about Q I posed the question to Q followers as well as Festus and a few others. What if. Yes, the old what if question. If an adversary knows the vast number of supporters to the enemy and they also know how well armed and eager these supporters are, why not use reverse psychological operations against them? Tell them what they want to hear to keep them at bay. Right? One of the biggest request of the devout Trump followers has been "lock her up" and "punish the deep state." We heard about the thousands of indictments and how many of these desired criminals are already being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Of course all of this information has been flowing from the Q character who know one knows. Millions of followers of Q remain in front of their computer waiting for the next Q clue. It's coming soon. They scoot closer to the edge of their seat. Not realizing they have celebrated three birthdays since Q message No 1. Now three years later and the edge of the seat is worn down and they have eaten most of their food.....and failed to see the big picture...and failed to prepare to any ramifications such as Q being right and thousands of VIP candidates being arrested, tried and put to death. It hasn't happened. I have believed from day 1 it's not going to happen. In a quick risk assessment of the impact to our nation if all these VIPs got arrested and imprisoned would be devastating. Risk vs impact.

My belief has been and remains that Q is a plant by the deep state intelligence apparatus to keep the Trump supporters at bay. They are feeding them information they have assessed and using algorithms from monitored social media, right wing and alternative news sites and comments by the Q followers to create this three and a half year conspiracy that the President and Department of Justice is going to bring down the deep state.

Ms. Lucy and I recently made a trip to SAMs club to grab some additional food stock for our food plan. As I always do, I was observing the shelves and amount of available stock. Ms. Lucy pointed out to me that on a recent trip to another major grocery chain they had signs up and limited the purchase of popcorn to two boxes per customer. How about that. A luxury food item being limited. She also mentioned the number of empty shelves in this store. While at SAMS Club I noticed the minimal availability to 50 lb bags of rice. The shelf contained five bags. On down the aisle to dried brown beans, they only had 12 lb bags and I found eight bags available. This was on a Saturday, early afternoon, and the shelves had minimal stock available. Coincidence?

It was great to have the opportunity to rally up with a contributor to HFS articles in the past. Time and schedules permitted a quick lunch with Gypsy Trailblazer during my Huntsville visit. We both have been extremely busy and time has not allowed the opportunity to cross paths. If you can imagine, Gypsy is a Italian New Yorker by birth and now converted Southerner who is in to preparedness. Listening to her stories about approa
