Opinion and editorial commentary by numerous writers and contributors to The Federal Observer.

Infallibility of our own version of Law unto ourselves and imposed on others?

I do think that Mueller and Comey believe that they are saving America. They believe in their own infallibility.

But neither one of them understand our Constitutional traditions as the Founders intended them.

Nowhere close.

I’d wager that neither one of them , or 90% of Washington D.C. Lawyers for that matter, have ever studied the Declaration of independence, the Constitutional Convention minutes, The Federalist papers, and few writings of the Enlightenment and Renaissance Philosophers. Continue reading

Wooldridge: Competing For Supremacy In 21st Century America

Black Tribe In Trouble

African-Americans arrived in America, not as hopeful immigrants, but bound in chains. Christian preachers sought to save their souls while white slave-owners beat, raped and lynched them. Owners ripped their cultures, languages and families to smithereens.

If you can stomach it, watch the movie “12 Years a Slave” to provide you with an idea of the whites’ brutality against the Negro race in America. On TV, you may see “Underground” as a continuing series showing the trials and tribulations of the Black Tribe in America back in the 1800s. Continue reading

Pendry: Our Orwellian Hole

In the internet era, the amount of information we offer up about ourselves is staggering. No one has to dig around for what we freely give. We do it without much thought and seem concerned only when there is a breach revealing our credit card numbers and even then there is a thriving industry to cure that ailment. Practically every app we download to our phones asks us for access to virtually every piece of information we carry around or receive. Then, we appear shocked when our information is used for purposes we did not intend – like unwittingly helping out political campaigns. Continue reading

Is the U.S. Government Evil? You Tell Me!

The greatest evil is not now done … in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern.” ~ C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

Is the U.S. government evil?

You tell me.

This is a government that treats its citizens like faceless statistics and economic units to be bought, sold, bartered, traded, tracked, tortured, and eventually eliminated once they’ve outgrown their usefulness.

This is a government that treats human beings like lab rats to be caged, branded, experimented upon, and then discarded and left to suffer from the after-effects.

This is a government that repeatedly lies, cheats, steals, spies, kills, maims, enslaves, breaks the laws, overreaches its authority, and abuses its power at almost every turn. Continue reading

Americans that don’t trust in God trust in big government

The central government our founders had in mind was a very limited one. They knew governments become tyrannical without checks and balances to control them. Our nation in many ways has departed from what are founders envisioned.

America was founded on Biblical concepts that are now denied by the state. Americans now give almost unlimited power to government and predictably tyrants are enslaving the people. It’s not just federal government either, take a look at California, New York and some other tyrannical state governments. The same can be said about some big city governments. Continue reading

Incest ~ it’s Incestuous

If this is HALF true it is already more scandalous than I had imagined. Funny, I never read much about this in the mainstream corporate media. OK Mark and Mike – let’s get to it! ~ Ed.

From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

A Grand Jury had been empaneled.

Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.

Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

Bet you can’t guess. Continue reading

RUN JESSE, RUN!

For a while now, I’ve wanted to creatively address the matter of Jesse Louis Jackson, Sr. bearing false witness to his personal accounts related to the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4, 1968, on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, TN. Over the years, in conjunction with numerous inquiries about the matter, many have urged me to provide a more detailed explanation on the “peculiar” version of Rev. Jackson’s activity surrounding MLK’s death … Let me declare that this story has been told before by individuals more qualified in the literary and research fields than me. However, this subject has yet to be transformed into an originative form of artistic expression … Until now.

Before I go any further, let me state that in no way does this written description, my use of the phrase “Run Jesse, Run!,” or the image/shirt imply or insinuate that Jesse Jackson had any direct or indirect involvement with the assassination of MLK. This assumption/accusation would be inaccurate. That is not what this is about. I do respect a healthy amount of Mr. Jackson’s civil rights and political activism throughout the years.

Warning! Living Might Cause Cancer

OOPS – No more coffee enema’s in Cali

One never knows what might cause cancer these days. Whatever it is, California will be first to find it.

Under California’s Proposition 65 law, cancer warnings are hopping up all over the place. We have another one today as a California Judge Rules Coffee Must Carry Cancer Warning.

Coffee in the state of California must carry a cancer warning, a judge here ruled, in a blow to Starbucks and other retailers which had argued that a state law meant to protect consumers shouldn’t apply to them. Continue reading

Oceania, ‘Tis For Thee: The World of ‘1984’ ~ Forming Now!

“Oceania” was a nation described in George Orwell’s “1984” as being comprised of Britain (called “Airstrip One,”) and the United States. There were two other superpowers, namely Eurasia and Eastasia. Other lands rich in resources were contested over, such as Africa and assumingly South America…lands never kept by any of three Super-states for any significant period. The “flux” in conquests was exactly what the MIC (Military Industrial Complex) of our time would have termed “necessary” to justify large expenditures: War as the focal purpose, rather than the exceptional event. Continue reading

America Is In Utter Jeopardy

President Trump recently signed the largest six month spending bill in United States history. Illegal border crossers are having a field day crossing our southern border like they did during the Obama presidency. Border officials are back to catching and releasing those who shuffle into our republic illegally. Leftist democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Chuckie Schumer are still celebrating the massive funding of sanctuary cities. Obviously neither Chuckie or Nancy have any regard for American born sovereigns and legal immigrants who are often raped, robbed, or beaten to death by illegal border crossers who moonlight as dastardly MS 13 gang members.

The Death Of Democracy

Yes, we live in deeply troubling times. I’m afraid the US is following history’s course to a tee, as a declining super power (or one certainly challenged by others) by ratcheting up all

Death of Democracy by gibraltarium

sorts of schemes to sabotage the other great powers, just to hold on to its “unipolar moment” since the end of the Cold War. The US will not succeed, but the results will be terrible for the American nation and catastrophic on a global scale. ~ A. Carlson

Anyone who thinks democracy doesn’t matter may be in for a rude shock later this year, when we know the result of America’s mid-term elections. The Deep State is on course to take control of Congress. If this happens, it will be the next step in a global trend of side-lining democracy in the West, driven in large part by American foreign policy. It has led to governments everywhere increasing control over their people, in an inversion of democratic principles. Continue reading

Estrangement

Publisher’s NOTE: The following is a story which I am able to understand, as my father and I had not seen each other in nearly thirteen years since he and my mother had divorced. ~ JB

A friend was visiting who I only see on occasion. After talking about our common interests, he told me he was currently splitting his time between where he lived and where he grew up. That was because his 90-year-old father needed to have a family member nearby. After commending him for doing the right thing in taking care of his aging parent, I asked whether he had any siblings who could help. He stated he had one who was no longer in communication with him or his father. His answer as to why was because his father and the sibling had a fight five years ago. Shocked by the statement I inquired of him, “You mean to tell me your sibling got so upset with an 85-year-old man that they no longer communicate?” Continue reading

Bonfire of the academies: Two professors on how leftist intolerance is killing higher education

Evergreen State College’s outcast professors Heather Heying and Bret Weinstein describe how postmodern leftist intolerance is killing higher education.

At colleges and universities all over the country, students are protesting in increasingly virulent and sometimes violent ways. They demand safe spaces and trigger warnings, shouting down those with whom they disagree. It has become rote for outsiders to claim that the inmates are running the asylum; that this is analogous to Mao’s Red Guard, Germany’s brown shirts, the French Revolution’s Jacobins; and, when those being attacked are politically “left” themselves, that the Left is eating its own. These stories seem to validate every fantasy the Right ever had about the Left. Continue reading

Frederick, Booker and Martin on the Race Hustlers

The Democrats and their leftist cadres have hot summer plans for 2018!

“The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations.” ~ George Washington (1796)

Obama may be gone, but his Democrat Party and deep-state race hustlers are working overtime.

Taking account of the Democrats’ most successful efforts this year to rally young constituents by fomenting division, one event above all others proved highly successful. It will most assuredly be replicated in some form next summer, ahead of November’s 2018 midterm elections. Continue reading

34 Percent of Students in Default Never Made a Payment

48 percent expect to have loans forgiven

More than one-in-three borrowers who have defaulted on their student loans did so without ever attempting to make a payment, according to a new report.

A record 11 percent of the 44 million former college students with outstanding loan debt now sit in default—far beyond the 8.6 percent peak in mortgage defaults at the height of the housing crisis that caused the Great Recession—according to the Student Loan Report. Nearly half of all those in default, 48.6 percent, said in a survey that they never obtained a college degree, while 33.8 percent have not made a single payment on their debt. Continue reading

Casey: Why Millennials Favor Communism

Communism is better than capitalism.

At least, that’s what a growing number of young people in the U.S. think.

I wish I were joking. But a recent study from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, a D.C.-based nonprofit, found that half of the millennials it surveyed would rather live in a socialist or communist country than a capitalist society.

And 22% of those surveyed had favorable views of Karl Marx… while 13% viewed Joseph Stalin and Kim Jong-un as “heroes.” About half of U.S. millennials would rather live in a socialist or communist country… What’s gotten into the youth? Continue reading

Gimme Shelter

The verdict in the trial of career criminal and illegal Mexican alien Jose Ines Garcia Zarate may not have been a miscarriage of justice; under our system of jurisprudence, prosecutors often overreach and jury nullification, whether by juror selection or choice of venue, is perfectly legal. There is not some sort of instant replay system whereby a flagrant miscall can be overturned by consulting the videotape. When the jury votes for acquittal, that’s it, and we wouldn’t want it any other way.

The knee-jerk reaction to it on both sides, therefore, is irrelevant. Conservatives, in general, were outraged that, legally, the man who pulled the trigger on the gun that fired the bullet that killed Kate Steinle got off with only a felony possession of a firearm conviction. Leftists — including the attorney who effectively won the case — saw it as vindication, and criticized the reaction on the right as, you guessed it, an assault on the legal system. Continue reading

Denzel: Missing dads, not prisons, to blame for black crime

Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington asserts that the failure and breakdown of black families are responsible for the prevalence of crime in their communities – not the criminal justice system.

It starts in the home,” Washington told theGrio in an interview during the screening of his latest film, Roman J. Israel, Esq., at New York’s Henry R. Luce Auditorium. “If the father is not in the home, the boy will find a father in the streets. I saw it in my generation and every generation before me – and every one since.” Continue reading

Smith: Justice Denied Is No Justice

A San Francisco jury engaged in a gross, outrageous miscarriage and travesty of justice and denied Kate Steinle and her family justice, on November 30th, when they delivered a “not guilty” verdict to her murderer, Garcia Zarate, an illegal alien from Mexico. The integrity of the law was destroyed by this jury nullification, which abandoned facts, reason and the truth, and these jurors sent a clear message to America that a criminal illegal alien’s life was more important than Kate Steinle’s life and those of America’s own sons and daughters.

Partly to blame, the Court itself exhibited just how broken our system really is. The five previous deportations of Zarate and his seven previous felonies were left out of the case, even though Ms. Steinle’s murder and Zarate’s illegal alien status had sparked a national debate on the country’s illegal alien problem. Continue reading

Ford: Ghost In This House

My father was a student of music, an American singer, raised on The Methodist Hymnal, trained in opera, a devotee of western swing and hillbilly boogie–and a cat who knew the difference between the two. He had an unerring, instinctive talent for recognizing genres; a little-known aspect of his musical education that grew into somewhat of a personal penchant as he grew older, and one I grew to respect enormously.

Particularly as it related to country music.

Ernie Ford was not a country singer. He was a singer, period. But he was a singer who understood musically, culturally, instrumentally and lyrically what made a country song country. Continue reading
