Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #86

Fellow Patriots,

Welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter (PENL) Edition #86. Thanks for stopping by to spend a few minutes with us. It is a great day to be alive and loudly proclaim to being American. "Oh say can you see..." No matter how rough the road ahead may appear or how rocky the path may seem, we shall prevail. To borrow a line from Doug Hagmann "truth cannot be silenced."

How many of you hid your bathroom scales since Thanksgiving passed? I stepped on the scales a day ago and I had to do a relook to make sure my buddy Wilson and his friends weren't standing on the back holding the scales down. I remember my last chat with Wilson when he stated he had started a weight lifting program to get in better shape to survive the winter season. Honestly, this is a great lesson to point out. It's winter. The holidays. Covid-19. And it is very easy for our weight to go in the upward direction if not careful. I noticed a lot of family around our house over Thanksgiving munching on cake, cookies, and candy. (Remember, a sense of humor is not considered fear porn)

Operations Greater Good - HFS has launched "Operation Greater Good" and it can be found at the bottom of the main page of the HFS website below videos. You may remember back to a Thursday Zoom Rally in September when the Page family appeared as special guest to share their missionary story in Southern Africa where they have lived for nearly 15 years. Ms. Lucy and I support the Page family and HFS decided to launch a support campaign for two specific projects. The Water Well Project for Zimbabwe and Mozambique and the Bible School Project. Several HFS Patriots who contacted me about supporting the Page's and their mission can do so at the link included in the HFS website page. Each project has it's own link to support. HFS is not involved in any transactions between the Word of Life project and the Patriot supporter. Remember, click the link, scroll to the bottom of the page to find the Operation Greater Good information. (I'm sorry it took me so long to get this built in to the webpage. I'm a one man circus and some acts take me longer than others.) Survival, Preparedness, Disaster Management for individuals or family ( Look for this page as you scroll to the bottom.

Thursday Zoom Rallies – Yes, we started back at full speed for our weekly Zoom rallies with Rally #33 on Thursday. I must say, what a great group of Patriots. It is such a blessings and completely uplifting to spend the evening in a virtual room full of Americans who love their country.

This week we covered some news for the week, some thoughts on Post-election news, and learned more on the German raid to recover Dominion servers. We then discussed "what is a cache" and how one could go about establishing a cache or multiple caches. We then moved on to the "chatter that matters" segment of the evening where the floor is open and the group conducts discussions on everything pertaining to preparedness.

If you would like to attend a weekly Thursday evening Zoom rally drop me an email to get added to the mailing list. I don't post the link or passcode in the open for OPSEC reasons.

HFS YouTube: - My friend, Chris over at the Christopher Scott Show contacted me Sunday afternoon asking if I would like to do a YouTube Live via Zoom that evening. Sorta short notice but you know me, it was a great opportunity to talk preparedness with whom ever would listen. To those of you who did visit Chris's YouTube page to watch live, we thank you very much for your time and support. Some of the topics we skimmed the surface on was Agenda 2030, Iran, the ongoing election, and preparedness. If you missed the free entertainment you can catch it at this link: Check it out. Bring a friend and family. Share the word. Preparing is no longer for weird people. Mainstream media now sells MREs and dehydrated meals during prime time. I think they are weird for taking so long to figure it out.

Communications: You can now follow HFS social media on the following outlets:

In this weeks newsletter I have loaded you down with information and sources for more information. to follow Yes, it's time consuming but how much to you want to be informed? Consider checking out the included information through the week? Festus and I source lots of information daily and try to weed out things we believe to be less important. We spend hours trying to piece things together to give you a clearer picture of the weeks news and information. So, grab a bagel or turkey sandwich, a good hot chocolate or tea, put your seatbelt on and lets begin this journey through the PENL weekly newsletter. Have fun.

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. Occasionally I use words only Patriots recognize and understand. It's not personal against any non-Patriot. It's just the truth. 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 some thoughts...

Thoughts for the week

We survived another week of madness and here we are again. Sometimes I wonder if my own thoughts even make sense any longer. Trying to figure things out can be a challenge for certain, right? When this happens I always revert back to my basics. My five mile radius around my home and community. Take time to relook my plans and resources. Adjust to the change of seasons. Look at different changes to my community, such as crime, unemployment, availability of resources in local stores, road construction projects changing or altering my routes, the health of my family members who are in my plan, team members on vacation or no longer in the community, changes to the town infrastructure such as local leadership and law enforcement, weather projections for the next week or two, training opportunities in my area or region, ... The list goes on for a ways. It is now the first of December so it's time to update my monthly threat chart to review and make any changes to global, national, or local threats. What has changed to impact my way of life? Threats vs impacts to me.

We are living in historic times in our great nation and it may be easier to do a coin toss to predict the outcome than to see it through, which we will have to do, right? If we continue with four more years of President Trump, how will it be? If we have a change to a President Biden what can we expect? How will these leaders policies impact my daily life? With President Trump would probably can expect more of the same we witnessed over the past four years, right? I believe we will see more of the past few years with attacks against him in the government and some anarchy in the streets of America. Jobs and income should stay the same however the national debt must be addressed immediately. With a President Biden we will most likely see many of President Trump's policies rolled back and more restrictions on our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights. Many of his named cabinet positions are former Obama appointees so much of what is to come we lived through for eight years. We will most likely see more movement to the left and Socialist views and policies. Some of the unknown answers to questions like freedom of religion and Christian education remains unknown and how will the religious right respond to further restrictions and cancellations. We can expect higher taxes, fuel cost, and military engagements around the world. A Biden administration has already stated they plan to lock down the nation for Covid-19 defense which will further the deterioration of local Ma and Pa stores. Unemployment numbers will probably increase as the nation moves to high tech engineering of our industrial capabilities through AI and VR.

My biggest question is how will the Patriots of America respond to an election result placing Joe Biden in the White House. Personally I believe this is more about the longevity and saving of our Republic and Constitution than the next four years of a chosen candidate or stolen election for another candidate. If this outcome goes forward with a candidate that stole the election many believe that America as we once knew it, is over. Some say we will never see another Republican President again or at least in our life time. If Patriots fail to stand up and support our current President who is fighting for his political life while elected Republicans bail on him, then who will stand up for the Patriots of America each day over the coming years? I remember another time in history when the masses failed to stand up against the small minority who changed their world forever. Think about it.

Next ...

It is very hard to not be extremely disgruntled and downright furious while we witness the ongoing denial of election fraud. We see evidence, state by state, yet elected officials ignore and brush aside the American voices and rights guaranteed by our founding fathers and Constitution. We have brave attorneys working around the clock in battle ground states trying to be heard and prove the fraud. It appears politicians may have been paid off to be silent. We have foreign participation by China, Venezuela, Cuba and Iran. The media is paid off and a culprit as well. This great land and all it has to offer to our children and grandchildren stands in the balance of being a freedom loving nation or becoming a Socialist to Communist nation. Our great nation is being torn apart. Shredded from within and externally. We, the people, have been sold out. The threat to change our America for ever is knocking at the door. Will the door open and let them on through to finish the job they started or will we the Patriots stand and block the door from opening completely. Remember the words of the Constitution that said "we the people hold ALL the power." Not some of the power or part of the power. We, the people, hold all the power. These American hating (explicit choice of my words can't be included here) elected officials answer to we the people. We are the rock and we must be the rock and ensure this fraud and criminal activity is stopped and stopped now. We are the people. We love our great nation and we must stand tall and strong to defend her battle like the brave souls of 1776. We must hold the line and defend this great republic. If we don't, we allowed the downfall of this great nation. It is that simple my Patriot sisters and brothers. We are the party of American Patriots, not Democrat or Republican. We are the people of truth. Have faith and hope. Stand tall and strong and be the American this great nation that was founded by the 56 signatures who signed our Declaration of Independence. It's our time to shine Patriots. May God bless this great nation today and each day after. May God protect us, shield us from the evil surrounding us, and attempting to change America forever. May God protect and advise we the people. May God be with us to ensure honest results and the delivery of His will. We pray God will reveal the truth to all Americans. May God bless the USA.

A fellow Patriot from North Georgia shared this podcast with me early in the week and it is worth sharing here. At this point in the game, it is very hard to nail down who is sharing something different or who is riding the coat tail of another. This gent stated some specific things to make me trust his credibility. I will let you make your own determination for your view and desires. We are at the point of who do we trust and why? There's so much psychological and counter-psychological operations going on at so many levels, it is very hard to confirm information. Many of you may remember during a class and early postings of the PENL I stated I often use international news sources to learn and cross-check information to the best means possible. Listen for points made. The fluff around the points is insignificant in many cases. Just the points is what we are looking for to cross reference with other points from other sources.

The biggest advice I can offer you remains the same. Put your main focus on the five mile radius around your home and know what is going on. Continue to prepare like every other day.

This is a former SOCOM Soldier, DEA Officer and Chaplain. He provides good information to consider in your news review and sourcing to follow. These take time but what is the news worth to you? He reveals, in his opinion who is Q.

This is another must you should listen to completely. You will hear things I have talked about over the past 20 months on the website, classes, and in zoom. Things that sounded crazy out unlikely. Mr. Prather speaks of the same programs. Listen closely to his information. When he talks about plans being worthless, he is talking about warfare and battles. Not preparedness planning. Don't get them confused. Like Iron Mike Tyson said "plans are great until your opponent punches you square in the face then your plan is out."

Next ...

Over the years we have watched crime come and go with no consequences to the criminals. If you don't know the history of Attorney Sidney Powell she switched from a Prosecutor to a Defense Attorney to defend the innocent such as Lt Gen Mike Flynn. She is now fighting the election fraud to support America, our Constitution, President Trump and the American people. Most attorneys who win a single case before the Supreme Court enjoy a successful career path. Ms; Powell has argued and won 70 cases. In this video she spills the beans on the corrupt dirt taking place in our government by elected and appointed officials.

Next ...

Interesting. Attorney General Barr made the statement there is no overwhelming evidence of fraud in the 2020 Presidential election. Maybe he should watch this video by a Michigan state employee. Someone isn't telling the truth. Guess who?

Next ...

So many questions float about as to how the Covid-19 vaccination could be used against a person choosing to not take the shot(s). Air travel? Crossing state lines? Shopping for groceries and fuel? Banks? Pharmacies? Gov and state facilities? Banks? Amusement parks? The list is long. Would it be used against the citizens of this great nation? With a current national death rate of less than 1/2 percent overall, why is there so much effort to spend billions and lock down a nation to impact the economy so drastically? Why has there never been a mandatory flu vaccine?

Here is the CDC vaccination card. Do you notice anything interesting on the card? Like four lines for vaccinations? There are more lines on the back of the card as well. I'm not saying you should or shouldn't take the vaccination. I'm simply providing you information to think about.

Okay, lets move along to the news…

Preparedness News

1. From SIG - Tactical S-H-I-T News - National Ammo Crisis! Where is the Ammo & When Will Prices be 'Normal' Again ( - One of the million dollar questions today is "where can I get ammo?" or "do you know anyone selling ammunition?" This article provides some grim news on ammo.

2. From Off Grid Living - Living Off the Grid: A Real-world Guide to Off Grid Living ( - I get an occasional question "where should I go or move?" Good question. But, its a hard question when you get down to the brass tax of what is best for a given family. Age, health, socio-economics, regions, skills, ... See my point?

3. From Mom with a Prep - 101+ Dehydrating Recipes for Food Storage, Hiking and Paleo Diets ( - This is a good article with information you may wish to print and place in your paper library. I was part of a recent conversation that discussed having recipes available to use to change up your menu. Foods, spices and adjusted menus with what you have available to offer.

4. From Laurie Neverman - Common Sense Home - Rain Barrels - DIY, Cheap, Decorative Options (Plus Care Tips) ( - Why do I need to worry about water, I have tap water. A great misconception in preparing. What is your plan when the tap runs dry? When city workers decide to stay home and protect their families vs going to work? A tornado hits your area and the water is not potable? Where will you get your water the next seven to ten days or longer? Rain water is an often available and wasted resource for most because they have never been without. Have a plan now vs when you have no plan or water and need it to flush a toilet. Just saying...

5. From Prepper Aaron - The Simple Prepper - 25 Prepper Stocking Stuffer Ideas - The Simple Prepper - The holidays are right around the corner. Here's some great gifts to consider for others or yourself when someone ask you "what is a gift idea for you." As a preparer, socks, underwear and t-shirts are such a bad gift any longer.

Other News

1. Tom Mayer - American Thinker - The Difficult Way Forward - American Thinker - This is an excellent read on politics...yesterday and today. How many citizens still haven't recognized its no longer business as usual in politics? It is fairly safe to say today is Americans vs all others who no longer accept or recognize America as the America of old and her foundation. The Constitution, Bill of Rights, 1st and 2nd Amendment, States rights and so forth. (Thanks Festus for sending this article my way.)

2. From Mike Adams - Natural News - Situation Update – Nov. 30th – Is Joe Biden preparing to CONCEDE? Rumors emerge of Biden seeking pardon deal from Trump – - Multiple alternative news sites now picking up on this subject. Is this maybe why Senator Harris has yet to resign her Senate seat? Would the Deep State allow Biden to concede without a hidden alternative plan?

3. From Tyler Durden - Zero Hedge - "Dark Winter" Was A CSIS Scenario Code-Name Covering Biological Weapon Use Against America | Zero Hedge - Maybe or maybe not. We, as Polly-woggles are just that, the funding source to the unknown that isn't supposed to know, just do. There is never any intent to inform the populace of the ball being square or why the triangle will not fit in the designed hole. Instead we just go about trying to make it work and hope we figure it out tomorrow. I want to believe people are wiser today and now research news topics and determine their own belief of the topic vs taking the word from an unknown source. Now, imagine how many years we, as citizens, lived through each day going about our business trusting everything around us. Why not? We didn't know better, right? One must wonder if what we witness today has always been the way it was and now we are simply finding out?

4. From Rev. Thomas Littleton - World View Weekend - The Evangelical Carpetbaggers in Education | Worldview Weekend Broadcast Network - I know this article will stun many because a lot of Christians really wants to believe in the greater good of man and faith. But, it is happening and even more often in Christian schools. Many Christians sold out their faith and church members to get aboard the politically correct wagon, even when it went against scripture. Ever hear of the Clergy Response Team? No? You may wish to educate yourself on what it is. Does your church currently participate in 501C3 programs? You may wish to find out what it is and how the government restricts certain programs and certain messages from your pastor. Just saying.

Drum roll...........

That's all my Patriot brothers and sisters. Stay alert and strong.
