Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #87
Welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter (PENL) Edition #87. 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. Ms. Lucy and I hope you are healthy and safe through this week and enjoy a blessed weekend with your family. We are in North Alabama this week and next week so we will get to enjoy special Christmas events through our local church.
We had the pleasure of doing a short notice HFS get together this week with a few new Patriots and HFS followers as well as long time Patriot sisters and brothers from the Huntsville area. It is always a blessing and treat to spend time together to catch up and discuss the world around us. There remains many concerns to the future direction of our great nation but we all remain hopefully and trusting the truth will be revealed in the end. Thanks to Huntsville Patriots for sharing your time with Ms. Lucy and myself.
I will be transiting through the hills of TN to meet up with Festus and another group of Patriots on Dec 18th to break bread and meet four to five new Patriots and HFS supporters since my last visit in November. HFS would like to welcome all new Patriots to HFS. We are gaining new Patriots daily and it is awesome. We are happy to have them but more happy to see so many like minded brothers and sisters.

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.)

Thursday Zoom Rallies – Yes, we started back at full speed for our weekly Zoom rallies with Rally #34 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 group has doubled in size since inception about 35 weeks ago. Thanks to all who attend and support this weekly gathering.
This week we covered some news for the week, some thoughts on Post-election news, and learned more on what is happening. We also discussed the individual global, national, and local threat matrix and what preparers should be doing right now during the unknown events to come in the days ahead. Mrs. Claus also shared some shopping methods to get cash back on resources collected in our personal preparedness plans. We all like cash back after we are adding to our plans, right? The group heard part of the interview conducted between Rick Wiles of Trunews and John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute on Artificial Intelligence and the Global Brain. We closed the rally with the group "chatter that matters" segment of the evening.
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.
There will not be a weekly zoom rally the week of Christmas and the week of New Years Eve is still pending. If we schedule a zoom rally the week of New Years Eve I will post it and email you the time and date. World and National events will drive this decision.

These sites are being monitored and any, I mean ANY comment that can be misconstrued as a threat to anyone is being identified and forwarded to authorities. Need I say more? Be very careful.
HFS lost one of our Patriot brothers this week who went on to a higher place. A retired Navy Officer, Constitutionalist, with a passionate love for America, our brother was a good man and will be missed. He died way to young at 62. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and family. Be blessed, brother JL. Thanks for your service to our great nation.
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 is 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 –
Freedom. What does the word mean to you? Do you ever really stop and think about the things around you or maybe places you have been around the nation which remind you of our history and events bringing us to our current date in time? For example, have you ever been driving down the US Interstate system and noticed something significant or maybe it catches your eye? How many of you actually took the exit and stopped to visit the largest ball of yarn in Cawker City, Kansas? I actually passed it a few times in some of my marathon trips via the highway system from point A to B. Time was important so I kept cruising on. But I remember it.
I've been truly blessed to visit 48 of our 50 states during my life. The remaining two states would be Alaska and Vermont I do believe. Lord willing I will also visit these two states in the near future after retirement. Sometimes I wonder if I see things from a different perspective than others. Of course I will never know and it isn't important I suppose. What I am saying here is not about me, but my wonder to how many of us remain. I don't see colors. I just see people. Men are statesmen and a handshake is worth it's weight in gold. Men show respect and wear their pants around their waste. He's are he's and she's are not its. Women don't become men and then carry a baby. This is not a human science experiment Communicate in words and sentences, not acronyms and sign gestures. Stand for our flag Learn your history and understand freedom is not free Someone paid a price. The backbone and strength of this great nation didn't happen with the snap of a finger Sweat, effort, vision, and faith carried us over mountain tops and valleys. We prevailed to this point.
Growing up things like this really didn't matter to me and I had a hard enough time learning state
