Welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter (PENL) Edition #91. We hope you enjoyed a healthy and safe first week in 2021. Is it just me or is the calendar passing faster? Maybe its just me. HFS is growing at such a pace that available time to keep things moving forward is difficult but in a positive way. Things such as team and group building by region, developing and setting up internal and external communications and trying to write book number 2 in the Hope or Survival series, has become a time management exercise.

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.
As HFS continues to grow, I believe it's important to remind everyone respect and honor is important to the HFS family and mission. We welcome everyone aboard and hope you find a comfortable place to hang around and learn preparedness. With multiple platforms (Zoom, Signal, and Comment section in articles) to interact with other HFS members I remind everyone to treat one another respect. We all come from different backgrounds, ages, experiences, and desires. Disrespecting, demeaning or intimidating comments will not be tolerated on any account.
Let’s move along and get to some thoughts...
Thoughts for the week –
Want me to be honest? My brain is going through this process of reassembling some of my own thoughts as to what we experienced in 2020. I'm starting to think the first week of 2021 is a refugee from 2020. Is 2021 going to continue on the same path as 2020? I don't know. What I do know is the same position I have stood on through 2020 is one I stand on and always recommend the same to you. 1. Critique and nurture your spiritual standing. 2. Continue to build your preparedness plans and expand on what you already have. We discussed this in the Zoom Rally last evening. I'm going to be pretty blunt. If you are still not convinced of No 1 and 2 above then maybe you should not spend your time with us. Why? I am committed in helping people prepare. The evidence presents itself. At this point, I am not here to convince you why you should prepare. But, just in case you have a small separation between reality and Disney Land, tell me why nothing below changes your perspective on the reality of our nations status. These are some of my own thoughts and some I borrowed from a recent post from Dave Ramsey.
- The United States government spent over 1 trillion dollars freeing the people of Iraq and now Iraq issues a warrant for the President of the United States while US Forces continue protecting Iraqi citizens. Hmmm
- Why is it unamerican for the Census to report the number of Americans in the country? One would think it would be wise to know how many tax payers the communist liberals can count on to pay taxes to support their insanity.
- We have witnessed the conversion and failure of nation after nation going Socialist yet many within our government and citizens thing the US going Socialist is a good plan. Really? We can't even manage a Social Security Program or a Post Office. Our education system is going down the toilet faster than Mr. Clean escaping insanity.
- After legislating gender, if a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him. Think about that point. What will be your response when your grown child tells you not to explain the truth to your grandchild who tells you what the school system has taught him/her.
- People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees. Really? We go to work, pay taxes, and try to care for a family, while basement dwelling non-tax paying, indebted college grads, tell you it's your job to pay their debt because of the color of your skin or your success.
- Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights. Huh? Have you monitored the number of rapist and hard criminals released in liberal states and cities? You get a notice and pay a HOA and city fine for flying the American flag yet we must recognize and honor the feelings of a criminal.
- If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free. Maybe this explains why America has fallen so far down the world rankings in academics.
- You can be charged with murder if you kill a baby in the womb while committing a crime yet that same baby in the womb is not a baby when being exterminated during an abortion.
- It is wrong and immoral for a parent to discipline their juvenile child yet moral for the same child to turn the parent in for attempting to parent.
- If you honestly believe any tax funded political job funded by you, me, others, has your best interest in mind and at heart when writing laws and policies, you should forget preparing and run for political office.
Shall I continue? You get the point, right? One of the blessings to starting and continuing Hope for Survival is communicating with you. So many of you I email back and forth with daily and/or weekly and to be truthful, you feel like family. Heck, I have more in common with you than my own family in many cases. No, actually in most cases. I firmly believe we the people don't give up. We don't quit. We lend a hand to lift others who are down. Even on cloudy days we still see the sunshine leading through the darkness. We must be or be part of the backbone in each of our neighborhoods and communities? Stay in tune with what is going on by being informed and staying ahead. It is amazing for Festus and myself to see so many things falling in to place that we started learning about five or more years ago. Do not wait until you are in the crosswalk to figure out the bus is heading directly towards you. That's free advice.
Need more encouraging? Oh, come on. I want to give you more proof you should pay attention. Oh, and for your liberal side kicks that snorts when they eat corn flakes and blames all the worlds problems on President Trump, show them the below intended House Resolutions coming up. Our wonderful Congress Lady Sheila Jackson (Hat Lady) from the Houston District has authored the following.
I would encourage you to listen to the video I shared below with Ms Catherine Austin Fitts where she discusses the long term plan taking place to convert our Republic and the planet. It is very eye for many and was worth presenting because she identified many points that Festus and I started tracking and learning about several years ago. So far most HFS readers run from the term "Technocracy" and how it is being used against the United States today. One of the steps in this Techno program is splitting the family apart. First it was to remove the "Father" and "father" from the home which they have successfully done with little resistance. Simply pay females more money in government aid to have kids and stay single than to be a family (married). Here is the link to the Fitts interview. This is worth your time.

I often hear stories from HFS Patriots who are broken from their children over politics and preparedness. Honestly, its pretty heart breaking to read story after story. The story usually ends with "do you have any suggestions to how we can get our children involved?" My response is usually the same. Prayer and plant the seeds. Lead by example. Demonstrate what you are doing without including the debate over politics. No matter how separated you seem from your loved one(s), you still have some commonalities. You both need to eat and drink water. Then build upon that. Most importantly, don't do so much damage debating the issue today that when the big event occurs tomorrow or the next day, your child remains afar.
With permission from a Patriot Sister who shared this with me, I want to share a story with you that was sent in this morning.
"We have 4 adult kids, 9 grandchildren. Over the past 3 years, 3 of those families have pulled away from us, in the intense rabid anger of the left. The one family that we are completely estranged from is the only family who shares the same conservative views as us. I know, it's weird. The family in XXX XXXX City is closest to us. They used to be conservative but recently we've realized they are probably liberal - we just don't talk about it. Most of our grandkids are in college or almost there. So yesterday, one of my grandson's 20 yrs old, text me and ask me if I would help him find a good gun and teach him how to use it. He, and 2 other grandson's are planning to come here to visit this summer. I told him to....maybe....go on signal app to talk about it because sometimes those things get tagged by NSA. He did not respond to that but I ask him...."who is your enemy?" He immediately text back. "Trump Supporters!" I simply said, sure I'll help you. You might want to read up on Klaus Schwab and George Soros, it's happening here in our country:" Now he won't respond to text about bitcoin, which he text about all the time. And this is how it happens!!! If it comes up again, I will tell him, that his best bet for safety and training right now is to move to downtown Portland and join Antifa. He's too much of a wealthy, comfortable city kid to do that."
This is just one of many stories. "We the People" aren't wrong and we must not give up our own beliefs, morals, and position on our Constitution, Declaration of Independence, religious beliefs, for anyone. We are not wrong. It does burden my heart to think of the hundreds of thousands of American troops who died in battle to preserve our freedom that is being thrown away by those elected to protect us and the followers who hate what we stand for. Wilson just told me in this case, "the but doesn't fall far from the tree." Sadly, I agree.
Isn't it interesting how Antifa and BLM rioted and burned down family businesses and cities all summer and it was looked upon as protest. At the same time the left screamed out calling the Patriots of America Homegrown Terrorist. Isn't it funny how the Homegrown Terrorist rallied to Washington D.C. to support and defend a flag and Constitution while the left acted as the left and demonstrated further aggression against the government while the government screamed foul against the Patriots. Still not a shot fired from the Patriots. There will be more stands and more aggression. Remember what I have said to you for the last two years. The greatest fear within the federal government are the Patriots of America and the vast number of weapons and resources to support the resources. Never forget this point.
So what is next? We basically have ten or so days left until our next President takes office. I would encourage each and everyone of you to shut the door, block all distractions, and listen to this full episode of the Steve Deuce Show. So far Steve probably has the best advice yet. At least before thousands return to Washington DC to demand accountability.
We must realize our single buffer to the madness taking place will soon be gone. You think the madness has been crazy so far? Wait until the current President has departed. The madness of the left will come from both barrels and at full speed. Taxes, Covid-19 restrictions, Religious right taken away and on and on. The boldness and protection of the left is going to be on full screen featured movie daily. This is the point I was stating to you a month or two ago. Have you considered how an administration change will impact your life. Your income? Your retirement funds? Your freedoms? Your ability to voice your opinion? You can bet with almost certainty you will no longer have 1st Amendment freedoms on Social Media platforms. It is easier to accept and handle when you have planned in advance. Remember, left of bang. Be proactive.
I think back to history and the shot heard around the world. Now realize there was no internet or live streaming to alert citizens to immediate news alerts. We all got that, right? But today, we do. And I can tell you from my own past life experience traveling all over the world while serving this great nation, all eyes and ears remained on America 24 x 7. That's right. Like us or not, America was the big eye and voice in the sky. The savior of millions who wanted and dreamed of bigger and better futures. I spent countless hours around a table describing the greatness of America and how life was here in the states. How a multi-cultured, multi-raced, group from many socio-economic backgrounds represented a nation with two political parties working and surviving as a single nation. In most cases it was a "wow" moment. Big eyes, some tears, and dreams growing bigger. Most of these citizens survived and/or escaped suppression, communism or socialism and could carry their possessions in a single sack.
The clock is ticking and time is running short. We must be the example, be honest and firm with facts while walking tall and casting a long shadow. Every inch we give in our beliefs to gain personally will never be recovered. What are you going to do? One of the biggest questions I carry forward in thought is did we just witness the biggest coup in world history with only a shot being fired? Think about it.
