Something overlooked in the immigration debate is that the huge numbers of illegal immigrants allowed into the country over the years are very good for business. Rather than cutting taxes and regulations, the progressive solution is to simply import more customers.
Businesses are in the business of being profitable, and most of that comes from increasing the number of people using their products and services. This goes a long way in explaining why the Walmarts, Starbucks, and Targets of the world are so liberal in their public profiles. Continue reading
FBI director received millions from Clinton Foundation
His brother’s law firm does Clinton’s taxes
A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that the Obama cabinet leader — now under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.
These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

What follows was submitted to us by long time reader and friend, Hippy Biker. At the end of what you are about to read – you will have YOUR assignment. ~ J.B.
I’ve been a season pass holder at Yankee Stadium, Yale Bowl and Giants Stadium.
I missed the ’90-’91 season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm. 14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with one of them, Sgt Garrett Mongrella, was about how our Giants were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it.
Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins. Continue reading
Hillary is the devil incarnate. My Catholic friend sent this but we actually watched her say this in one of her campaign speeches.
Her five alleged personal Abortions, the murders she has had accomplished, her crimes our government won’t deal with make her more dangerous than the current Administration.
She will go after we Baby Boomers!
Pray without ceasing that she doesn’t get elected. ~ Cynthia B.

The time is NOW! If this should be the final post published at The Federal Observer, and if should be the last piece that you ever read – then understand the importance of that, which lays before you. Share it wide and share it often.
Darden could not improve on all that he has said here. At this moment – the Native Americans in North Dakota are doing more for the people in this nation than most ‘americans’ (note small ‘a‘) would ever consider doing. Most want it done FOR them. Not I – not now – not EVER. ~ Jeffrey Bennett, Publisher and Editor
The naive hopes of Bernie Sanders’ supporters – to build a grass-roots political movement, change the Democratic Party from within and push Hillary Clinton to the left – have failed. Clinton, aware that the liberal class and the left are not going to mount genuine resistance, is running as Mitt Romney in drag. The corporate elites across the political spectrum, Republican and Democrat, have gleefully united to anoint her president. All that remains of Sanders’ “revolution” is a 501(c)(4) designed to raise money, including from wealthy, anonymous donors, to ensure that he will be a senator for life. Great historical events happen twice, as Karl Marx quipped, “first as tragedy and then as farce.”
University Officials Sign Off On Literal Emotional First Aid Kit
An adviser and an assistant professor at the University of Houston showed support for providing students with an emotional first aid kit that would contain a baby blanket and candy among other things.
Their backing of the emotional first aid kit is revealed in a Project Veritas video first obtained by The Daily Caller. James O’Keefe went undercover in late August as a member of the “99.9 percent” group and spoke to University of Houston psychology department advisor Bobbie Sue Schindler.
“The stress of school gets to them. Like a bad grade, a missed class, being late, a microaggression, uhh whatever,” Schindler said to O’Keefe about the emotional distress University of Houston students face. Continue reading
In the following video, economic trends forecaster Gerald Celente does what so few in the media are willing to do these days, which is to cut through the layers of garbage being reported by special interest propagandists masquerading as “news” outlets to those who don’t know better. After a brief introduction of what is currently going on in the precious metals, oil, and equity markets, Celente wastes no time going berserk on how absurdly tainted our media’s reporting has become.

We are living during a revolutionary time. Up until this most recent chapter in human history, the people of the world had been segregated from many elements of the world that lay outside the boundaries of technological capacity. Vital information regarding economics, politics, history, philosophy etc. was in many ways inaccessible to the average layperson. If it was accessible at all, it was disseminated by self-interested organizations that would alter or omit certain pieces of information that did not serve the interest of the publishers.
A revolution of thought that has begun to stir the sleeping giant.
Those stodgy Founding Fathers! Not only did they study hard, work harder, and marry one woman for life, they also insisted on – get this – morality. As in obeying the Ten Commandments, the Golden Rule, and the basic moral teachings of the Bible in general. So strongly did they venerate morality that they frequently observed its unbreakable link with liberty. They believed that moral people alone remain politically free.
John Adams, for example, claimed, “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
“While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued.” His cousin Sam agreed. “Religion and good morals are the only solid foundation of public liberty and happiness.” Indeed, he feared, “A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.” Continue reading
Now – is this a racism issue or is there some other agenda here?
For those who don’t remember, Kathryn “Kate”, was shot while walking on the pier in San Francisco by an illegal immigrant (who had previously been deported) with a gun stolen from a BLM ranger.
People who are familiar with my writings should not be surprised at my list, although many people who read my Facebook post did act surprised. Of course, these could have been people who aren’t that familiar with my writings after all.
At any rate, with my Facebook post I made my list without explanation. I will use this column to share a little bit of the reasoning behind my selections. So here goes: my top ten worst presidents in U.S. history: Continue reading
The essential facts about Hillary Clinton’s “ethical lapses” — corrupt activities that should render her ineligible for office, if not eligible for prison.
“A lie stands on one leg, a truth on two.” ~ Benjamin Franklin (1735)
In 1992, a young charismatic Democrat from Arkansas, William Jefferson Clinton, defeated a stale older GOP presidential candidate, and then, over two presidential terms, established himself as the undisputed champion of the “BIG lie.”
In 2008, another young charismatic Demo, Barack Hussein Obama, defeated another stale older GOP presidential candidate, and then, over two presidential terms, took the art of big lies to a whole new level.
However, their considerable skills of duplicity and deception notwithstanding, both Bill and Barack have been displaced by the most shameless of all prevaricators, Hillary Rodham Clinton, who lies about everything… Continue reading
If our nation is going to pull out of this Obamaland crap-ditch that we’re currently mired in, then we’re going to need men. Not males, but men. Men who personally, politically and culturally scrap indifference, take responsibility, lead boldly and expect success.
Which means, if I’m right in my assessment, that we’re more screwed than a drunken coed at Panama City Beach during Spring Break because there are pusillanimous punks o’plenty nowadays.
Yep, I blame the absence of men being men as the chief reason why we’re being hijacked by commie clowns and a significant swath of our nation is actually contemplating electing Hillary for president when she should be in prison. Continue reading
Her rationalization to Wallace when called out on the matter is nothing more than classic Clintonian attempt to conceal her true beliefs and intentions.
Following her recent interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, Hillary Clinton suffered justified ridicule for falsely claiming that FBI Director James Comey declared her private email server explanations truthful.
Unfortunately, what received far too little attention were Clinton’s damning contradictions regarding Americans’ Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
During a fundraiser just last year, Clinton declared unequivocally to a friendly audience, “The Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment.” So quoting her own words, Wallace asked, “In the 2008 Heller case, the Court said there’s a constitutional individual right to bear arms. What’s wrong with that?”
In response, Clinton attempted her trademark routine of word salad obfuscation: Continue reading
Dear Liberal Media and Left Wing Big Money Backers (that means you Soros!),
I have tried my best to keep this little battle between us civil and allow you to do your “thing” while we on the right do ours, but the time has come to call you what you are… idiots, and make everyone on the planet aware of it.
I appreciate the fact you put a left twist to news stories, even though you are supposed to be an “unbiased” news source. Unlike publications such as ours, which is an opinion based news source, the people of this country depend upon you to report solely the facts and allow them to make their own judgements.

How America’s biggest banks took part in a nationwide bid-rigging conspiracy – until they were caught on tape
Illustration by Victor Juhasz
Editor’s NOTE: What you are about to read is just over four years old – but it could have been written last night. What Taibbi published back in the Fall of 2012 is the story of Wall Street and Politics for ALL time. Small time players go to jail while the BIG crooks laugh and pour another snifter of Cognac in celebration. We are now into the final months of the 2016 (S)election season and these same Wall Street shysters are committing the same fraud on behalf of at least one of the Presidential candidates – much of it through HER Foundation – along with her Foreign Donors.
Change the dates if you wish – the beat goes on… To the wicked go the Spoils! ~ J.B. (Read FULL Story)
“This cartoon by Joseph Keppler, who was the, both the editor and main cartoonist for Puck, which became one of, a very popular satirical weeklies in the post-Civil War period, expresses a general public discontent and concern about the growing impact and power of large businesses in the United States in the Gilded Age, particularly as this indicates, by businesses that have become monopolies in one way or another, and their control over the political process.
This is the period of time when the Senate is beginning to be conceived of as a millionaire’s club, it’s not quite called that yet, but it’s getting there, and certainly the sort of power and influence of business has become palatable.
If you are baffled about what to do this election season on voting, see if this might engage you a bit. ~ Angie C.
In all my years of watching politics in the US, never have I seen a presidential election generate such overwhelmingly negative emotions. Everyone hates Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, or, increasingly, both of them. This is creating a severe psychological problem for many people: they want to tell their friends and the world that Clinton is mentally unstable and a crook, but they are conflicted because they realize that by so doing they would be supporting Trump. Or they want to tell everyone what a vulgar, narcissistic, egotistical blowhard Trump is, but they are conflicted because they realize that by so doing they would be supporting Clinton. Some are abandoning the two-party duopoly in favor of minor parties, ready to vote for Jill Stein the Green or Gary Johnson the Libertarian, but are conflicted because voting for Stein would take votes away from Clinton the crook and thus support Trump the blowhard, while voting for Johnson would take votes away from Trump the blowhard and thus support Clinton the crook. There is just no winning! Or is there? Continue reading
On July 26, 1969, it was my privilege to attend Dr. Hans Sennholz’s seminar on “The Dollar Crisis.” As Dr. Sennholz concluded his very able and intensely interesting account of our problem, he analyzed the decline of the paper dollar and the grim future and then concluded thus (to cite my summary notes): “The people are to blame; the government is their tool. People make demands on the government for a growing list of services, demanding aids, services, grants, which create an inflationary economy. Peter has been taxed to pay Paul. The end of the road is in sight, but the pressures on the government by the people continue. Price controls and a dictator loom ahead on this road, and economic destruction. The people must change, before the trend can change.” Continue reading
When it comes to medical use… the federal government should get out of the way and let people decide what works for them and the people they love.
For the first time since 1988, both major parties’ nominees — Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump – say that they have never smoked or experimented with marijuana (without inhaling).
President Obama has been open about having used marijuana and other drugs in his youth, yet his administration has taken insufficient steps to inject some sanity into the federal government’s approach to marijuana policy. In 2008, the Obama campaign talked about keeping federal prosecutors from going after medical marijuana dispensaries in states that have legalized medical use such as California. To the contrary, in his first term especially, Obama’s Department of Justice was merciless on medical marijuana providers, as well as users. If you hoped for big change, get over it. Wednesday, the Drug Enforcement Administration announced it would not change marijuana’s classification from the Schedule I drug status it has held since 1970. Continue reading
We Will No Longer Stand For Your Lies Obama!
This country has seen a lot of terrible things happen in the past 8 years. The economy couldn’t be more fragile. Our foreign affairs outlook is bleak to say the least. Our military prowess is quickly draining due to Obama’s weak strategy in the middle east. ISIS mobilizes more by the day and home-grown terrorist organizations like Black Lives Matter continue to gain ground.
There’s absolutely no denying the fact that Obama was a mistake. It wasn’t clear how costly it would be when he originally gained office in 2008. At the time, we just knew that he stood for many questionable things. Now, it’s quite clear the level of destruction he has caused. Continue reading
