Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #86
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 (hopeforsurvival.com) 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: https://youtu.be/O80DEyW5RUo 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.

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.

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
