When Injustice Takes Hold: Freedom – Liberty – Really???

~ Introduction ~

The Fourth of July – a celebration of the freedoms our forefathers fought and died for.

But – – one might ask just what freedoms are we celebrating?

In fact, we might ask just what freedoms do we have in this year of our Lord, 2018?

Even better, we might ask what freedoms are we supposed to have? Continue reading

Lifelong Dem Believes Party is FINISHED After Forcing Government Shutdown

Democrat pollster Pat Caddell thinks the Democrats are in big trouble.

DooDoo, Schemer and Pocohantass

They gotten themselves locked into a battle of illegals vs Americans, which is never a good place to be.

Democrats pushed the issue to its limits, when they shut down the government, cutting off military and American children’s healthcare. Caddell says the Democrat Party has been hijacked and they’ve lost control of their base. Continue reading

Wooldridge: Can We Swap Out Americans for Foreigners to Maintain the Same Country?

According to U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (SC), you could take our entire population and swap it out for 320 million Chinese or Indians or Africans or Canadian or people from New Zealand, and the place would be no different, so long as the idea was still there,” Tucker Carlson of Fox News said. “Does anyone actually believe that?Continue reading

A Government Shutdown Solves Lots of Problems – for the Democrats

Well, looks like we may have another government shutdown, compliments of the socialist members of Congress who are still cheeky enough to refer to themselves as Democrats. But then, I guess you can still fool some of the people some of the time, though it is getting a bit more difficult.

Seems to me I recall that “honest” Chucky Schumer moaned back in 2013 what a tragedy a government shutdown would be. But now he seems to be okay with it. All depends on whose ox is being gored doesn’t it? Continue reading

Time to Repeal the Disastrous 1965 Immigration Act

Question: If someone sells you on something with false advertising and it does the exact opposite of what was promised, are you not entitled to return the product and get a refund? In fact, if the product caused you harm, should you not in addition be compensated for damages?

Consider that when Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) was pushing the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 (S.500) on the Senate floor, he said, “First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually.”

Actually, he was right. We now absorb more than a million immigrants annually. Continue reading

Lewis: When Injustice Takes Hold


Yeah, right – all it means to me is that I am a year older and still alive. Yep, 12 whole months older and maybe a bit wiser, or at least I like to think so.

Wisdom, however, seems to come at a much slower rate than age, especially for the last 40 years, as it seems my life has literally flown by. It is hard for me to believe that 54 years have passed since I graduated High School, or that kids I taught in one of the many indoctrination centers (public schools) are now in their upper 50s.

SARTRE: The Millennial Utopian Society

In order to understand the millennial phenomena that has influenced the beginning years of the 21st century, acknowledgement that the under thirty sect is quite different from their parents’ generation is crucial. Back some fifty plus years the popular saying coined by Jack Weinberg was “Don’t trust anyone over 30”. The crowning irony is that this mindset was expressed during the “Free Speech Movement at UC Berkeley which was a struggle by students over the right to engage in political speech on campus, which helped to catalyze broader political activism on campuses around the country over student rights, civil rights and the Vietnam War”.

Aquino: The Voice Of My Generation

                       Isabella Aquino

I believe the concept of American exceptionalism and liberty was inspired by God. Unfortunately, I believe our younger generations are a target of an ungodly agenda and the education system is being used as a tool to support it. God has undoubtly shed his grace on America but it’s our responsibility to guard our children until they are able to stand on their own without the assistance of mom and dad.

My own personal experience is a testament to this fact. When I was in the 7th grade there was an Evolutionist teacher who greatly bullied me. This Evolutionist teacher was spreading lies into naïve children that believed anything they were taught. Children believe anything you tell them. It’s because they have that child-like faith. I knew what he was doing wasn’t right and every time I went into that classroom I knew it was wrong. I remember if anyone tried to question this teacher, they ended up looking like they were the idiot. He preached evolution and mocked any open dialogue. We were his clay in his sarcastic belittling and he used his position as teacher against us. He specifically targeted me because of my beliefs. Continue reading

Hate-Heaping Desperado Dems Can Never Vanquish Christmas

The message of the Geese is “Keep Going! NEVER GIVE UP!

My favorite ‘Christmas Carol’ is the honking of geese flying overhead; my favorite because of innate assurance that the honking of the geese will remain long after Christmases past or present.

How many times will the distinctive sound of the geese as I work return to remind me that worrisome as they may be, special counsel Robert Mueller, the filth of Hollywood, Barack Obama waiting in luxury and comfort to strike out at America from ‘Resistance Leader’ status, are, like all other earthly creatures, only passing things while in the Almighty’s perfect Creation, geese get to stay?

Untying the Ties That Bind Us

Beginning with the so-called revolution of the ’60s, we abandoned the sacred in favor of the profane.

Whether Al Franken realizes it or not (bet on not), his resignation speech epitomizes the moral rot that is eating at the foundations of our nation. A lampooning of Franken’s self-serving remarks displayed on the cover of Friday’s New York Post said it all: “I didn’t do anything wrong, but I’m leaving.” How did we become a nation where blaming everyone but oneself for one’s problems can reasonably be labeled as “quintessentially American?” How did we manage to convince ourselves that right and wrong are individualized — and negotiable — concepts? Beginning with the so-called revolution of the ‘60s, we abandoned the sacred in favor of the profane.

Zionist Wars for a Greater Israel

Most timid Americans would avoid any serious discussion on the true causes of a continuous failed foreign policy that only benefits Israel while costing our own country any chance of real national security and a prosperous society. The mere mention of the term Jew is usually enough for being banded to the back of the room and shunned as one of those haters. Unfortunately, President Trump has succumbed to this fallacious political correctness. In order to correctly understand the framework of the detrimental circumstances that propagate the decline of the American Empire, the clear-headed observer must confront why the United States remains a vassal to the Zionist myth that Israel is a valuable ally to our country.

We are All Slaves

Aren’t we all slaves?

I suppose I am an old-school individual. I believe that face to face conversations and interaction are certainly the most enlightening and edifying. I enjoy the company of several people at the table for meals and even for drinks. I learn and grow from our conversations, which is after the point. In fact, one of my favorite partner’s and companions is my wife. She provides a different perspective and refreshing view of the topic with her feminine and ethnic views. Continue reading

We must be crazy!

“It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.”

~ Albert Einstein

Where do we draw the line?

When will we stop?

Have we already passed the tipping point: is it already too late?

Current events seem to underline the immediate need for caution. History tells us that wise men have said so from the beginning of recorded time, yet there is no appreciable change. Continue reading

Another One Bites the Dust

Michael Ramirez ~

If only abortion were retroactive, we could suitably deal with monsters like Senator Al Franken (D – MN), who apparently ventured to apply a breast adjustment to a female colleague asleep on the military airplane winging them home from USO duty in Afghanistan. This was back in the day when Senator Franken was a professional entertainer, a clown to be precise, but his career shift to politics has rendered all his prior clowning anathema.

Will he slink out of the senate in disgrace with (ahem) his tail between his legs? Or will he bunker in and wait until the mega-storm of sexual accusation roars on to strand some bigger, flashier fish on the shoals of ignominy? Perhaps we’ll soon learn that Warren Buffet repeatedly shagged his notoriously over-taxed secretary in the Berkshire Hathaway janitor’s closet. Or that Mike Pence once bought a diet Dr. Pepper for a woman who was not his wife! Continue reading

It’s Over!

…and so in the scheme of things, you actually believe that all we have published on the Federal Observer since July of 2001 has made a difference? If it had, then O’Bammy would never have been able to hi-jack the White House and cause all of the damage he caused for nearly a decade. Hillary would never have been chosen as the Democratic nominee in 2016 and Trump would have never been chosen and allowed to leave the Atlantic Casino and moved to the one in DC, also known as the ‘White House.’ Is that meant to be negative comment regarding the President? No – just a factual statement!

So we have reached a turning point in America… heading toward the final collapse. As our ‘Quotables‘ post from the front page of this blog states:

“The phrase “the Fall of America” suggests some cataclysmic event ended the American Empire which had stretched from Maine to California and Florida to Washington. But at the end, there was no straining at the gates, no barbarian horde that dispatched the Empire in one fell swoop. Rather, the Empire fell slowly, as a result of challenges from within and without, and changing over the course of hundreds of years until its form was unrecognizable.”

America Breaks Down: The Anatomy of a National Nervous Breakdown

Another shooting, another day in America ~ or so it seems.

With alarming regularity, the nation is being subjected to a spate of violence that terrorizes the public, destabilizes the country’s fragile ecosystem, and gives the government greater justifications to crack down, lock down, and institute even more authoritarian policies for the so-called sake of national security without many objections from the citizenry.

America Crossing A Cultural Rubicon Into Multicultural Conflict

If you look on Facebook, it appears that ANTIFA, La Raza, Moslem Brotherhood, Black Lives Matter, Aztlan, CAIR and other violent multicultural groups operating in America—cannot wait to change the face of the USA into their vision of a perfect society.

On November 4, 2017, ANTIFA plans massive demonstrations and even riots to overthrow the U.S. government. They threaten the White House and other governmental offices.

Tom Steyer, a billionaire, promises $10 million in an advertising campaign to impeach President Donald Trump. For years, billionaire George Soros spent millions to disrupt the political process in America. Continue reading

Finley: Kudos to Suzanne Fields

Gordon E. Finley, Ph.D.

I urge anyone who might have missed it in our nano-second news cycle to read Suzanne Fields’ most timely column (“Young men’s lives matter, too,” Web, Oct. 18). In wonderful prose, Mrs. Fields masterfully integrates California Gov. Jerry Brown’s recent veto of a bill that would have codified into California law the notorious “dear colleague” false campus rape hysteria of the Obama administration, the progressive feminist media’s desire to keep Harvey Weinstein on the front page in order to convince all and sundry that every man really is a Harvey in sheep’s clothing, and heaps praise on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos for her clear-sighted fairness and transparency.

Even if you disagree with Mrs. Fields’ thesis, reading her column will be a pleasant break from the Washington world of harsh tweets and name-calling unbecoming even of a politician.

Trump, We Hardly Knew Ye

It was probably pretty naive to ever suspect that a billionaire reality television star could actually be any kind of populist. Before his 2016 presidential campaign, I felt the same way about Donald Trump that I feel about every billionaire, and was repelled by his sleazy, arrogant public persona.

But candidate Trump said some things that no other presidential candidate ever has. He criticized the embarrassing state of our crumbling infrastructure. He called out the media for its blatant dishonesty, and made the term “fake news” a national sensation. He was the first politician since before World War II to declare that we should take care of America’s many problems first. He lambasted a foreign policy bent on nation building and lamented the waste of trillions of dollars on senseless wars. Continue reading
