Brother and Sister Patriots,
We just learned that PFA will close down March 21. That is the end of the billing cycle. I will be posting all updates about PFA closing here.
I see some of you don't read all the emails Harry and I send out and have missed the ones where we shared with you why PFA is closing.
Harry is rightly devoting much needed time to/with his lovely bride. His bride - the love of his life has been dealing with some medical issues for some time now and Harry is the primary care-taker.
I am working more in my precinct, and now that has moved out into other precincts and now my county. I pray everyone of you will be doing the very same in your communities.
I'm unable to be here that much and do what needs to be done in my community too. We have put out a call for volunteers several times over the last 1 1/2 yrs. We got some help but it's the same, everyone is busy and can't devote enough time that is needed.So with this in mind, Harry and I made a decision to close PFA. We have let everyone know that we will be continuing our works here and here, plus we've invited you all to come with us.
PFA has become almost a 24/7 work. There are things we've guarded this site from which requires alot of time....I won't share what all that entails, but many of you know about the broken english love spammer that we've had to deal with. That is just one thing... there are several other types of scavengers we've guarded against as well.
We have had groups want to take over PFA. However, if a group took over PFA, it would no longer be PFA except in name only. Plus, those groups already have a group and site online....why would they want to take over this group? They want to take over PFA for our membership/database. PFA is special and unique....that is why many of you, like Harry and I, are saddened by it being closed. But the decision is made. Sometimes we have to make hard decisions and this was one but we both stand by it.
I ask you all a question. What is it you like about PFA? What makes PFA special and stand out for you to want to be a member here? I know some of you are members on all the sites, but I ask the ones who only join PFA and maybe a few other sites. Why is it special to you? Your answers probably confirm why we will not be passing PFA membership on to another group or individuals.
I'm sure everyone that has spent any length of time in/on PFA and not used it as a hit and run/post and run site, knows how we feel about our members. You're not just members....you are our brothers and sisters that stand shoulder to shoulder with us in this fight of our lives for our country, constitution. We stand for integrity, honor, and courage. We strive to preserve our beloved country for our children and grandchildren. We strive to teach our children and grandchildren about the greatness of our country and it's true foundation! We work for restoring our liberties, my most cherished is freedom of conscious. We are having to fight daily to keep that.
So again, what makes PFA special to/for you? That will probably answer your question to why we won't pass it on to someone or another group.
Unfortunately, in my busyness, i really didnt take full advantage of what the site offers. Is there any way to make some of these great recourses availabe elsewhere online? (maybe a blog with files or something?) However, I am pretty active in my Tea party type endeavors, groups and online communities - we all cant do everything. I understand and respect the reasons for the closure. Duty Calls! God Speed! Thanks for your time and service thus far! Im sure you will be very effective (both of you) as you move forward.
PS - what is the Patriots Union you mentioned? the link you shared seemed to indicate that members come via invitation - could be a good thing to keep out imposters! (as you surely know!)
PFA is / was a great source for information. I, for one, read it religiously and forwarded all the info to those on my distribution list. But mostly, it was for the words of wisdom that I found so pro-found. Harry always had a way to express himself. This will be sadly missed. This is one of the things that is sadly missing in today's environment.
All the best to Twana. All the best to Harry and his wife. God will give them the strength to carry on.
It is sad that the site is closing. As all of us know, the 24-7 work of Twana and Colonel Harry, and their efforts have been tireless and selfless, and we can't thank both of them enough for all of the information that has been provided since the site's initiation, but we also understand the situations that have brought about the necessity to move forward.
What I have most appreciated (special to me) are the immediate announcements of events along with the spot on reports of state actions (legislative as well as national). Much of the information I have gleaned has been passed on to others, and the report on States' Rights was particularly helpful as my state (AZ) is in the process of enacting several bills that are directly related to what Twana put together for all of us to share. I am preparing that information to be sent to my state representative and senator along with Governor Jan Brewer.
I, too, will go to the other sites provided and participate there. In the meantime, I know I join others here in thanking Twana and Colonel Harry for their devotion to the patriot cause, and we pray for their future endeavors along with the health of Harry's wife.
Thank you, again, and God bless.
You do. Keep in touch please.
Twana, me and my wife will continue to pray for you and your family and Harry and his wife. How is she by the way? (The last four years have taken so much from us that we are fortunate to be able to still communicate like this. ) I know she has lost her leg, I honestly don't see how Harry has time to do what he did. God will bless him for it. We're asking Gods blessings on whatever you decide to do and after reading much of your writing, I'm sure it will go foward.
I don't often quote the bible online except in the devotions I send out 5 days a week, but this seems to say what I want to about you. In Galations 3:29 it says 29And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. God bless you and your family as well as Harry and his wife.

I have read the emails about Harry's wife, and I completely understand his decision. I would do the same thing.
I am just very saddened about PFA. I have gained so much from the postings. I love Our Republic and I feel I was very fortunate to be able to read and ACT on what you posted.
Twana, thank you so much for all of your hard work. I pray God will continue to use you in a mighty way. Indeed my friend, you are a True Patriot. God Bless America.
The best way to get involved is join local TP groups and run for a precinct delegate position. Go to local meetings such as school board, city council, township board, planning commission, etc. Take a Constitutional course. I just completed a twenty hour course in one week. It is taught by Heritage Research Institute (they have a web site). The Institute also sells many excellent books on the United States. Unfortunately I could not buy a copy of each book but I bought four.
They are "CONSTITUTIONAL " Homeland Security"" by Edwin Vieira a MUST read,
"The War Between the State" by John J Dwyer, the real reason for the war - not slavery
"1776" by David McCullough
"Christianity and the Constitution" by John Eidsmore.
The reason I say take a course and get the above books is there is so little I knew about the basis for the Constitution and the history. It sure opened my eyes as to how little the citizens know and because of that have been taught the propaganda of the left in place or our GOD blessed country.
I am crunched for time today and tomorrow, but I will try to send you information regarding what I have done and am doing now. Remember ONE individual can make a major impact and difference in the direction of our country. Two you already know TWANA and HARRY RILEY. Also remember who the majority of one is GOD.
