See you after August 1st.
As the sixth day of July nears the end of day, the time has come to explain what has been happening at the Federal Observer and why there are so few updates.
Three weeks ago my son and his family relocated to points East in order to be near her family – some of whom near the end of their fruitful lives. In addition – dealing with the constant flow i=of illegal invaders to the Southwestern region of this country has made any kind of a career nearly impossible – hence the need to get out of Phoenix. Enter Dad… Continue reading
Good morning – it’s Sunday, and we want to welcome you the the way of the future – Chicaga style… Barack Obama style (along with a little help from his friend, the current Mayor of the Second City) – the Ballerina.
Note our special header and background images on the Federal Observer for the next couple of days. I miss the way it used to be… but then so goes the nation.
The opening few columns will shed new light on the future holds…
As we used to say in the old days, “Fuggettaboutit!“
“Write drunk; edit sober.” – Ernest Hemingway
~ Preface ~
February 15, 1968 – Being the Chef, bartender and janitor at the off-post Officer and NCO club near the North Point, Germany home of the 619th Ordinance unit, I was cleaning up the club after the monthly combined wives club luncheon, Lawson informed me that I had a call from Division Headquarters which I needed to take. It was Frank (our former Company clerk) telling me that my tour of duty was nearly at an end, and asked how many days leave I wanted to take in the States. I told him that I had no desire to return home, “What’s up?” The answer was the one, which most of us dreaded at that time. TET had taken its toll that month in Viet Nam, and I was being called up. “Oh shit,” I thought to myself, but, what the hell? – I was ready for a new adventure anyway. After all – it was easy in the movies, wasn’t it, John Wayne and all? I told Frank that I would take 45 days and began to make my preparations. Continue reading
Good day all and welcome to my world.
Surgery was scheduled at 8:00 a.m., January 16, 2014. As far as I know that is when the deed was done. The last thing I remember after being wheeled into the OR and moving myself to the operating table, was having a mask fitted over my nose and mouth and told to breath deeply. I remember maybe three breaths and woke up in the recovery room some time later looking feeling as though I had been involved in a bad bar brawl the night before. Come to think of it, my gut still looks as though this had happened.
It is after 2:00 a.m. as I write this and I can’t sleep. I guess that this is part of the recovery process as well…
Thursday: Considering that I had not eaten since 5:30 p.m. the night before and had nothing to drink for twelve hours prior to the scheduled surgery, I showed up for check in – not in the best frame of mind, but the entire staff at the Arrowhead Hospital began loading me up on dope as quickly as they could, and “hey maaaaan” – I was cooking pretty good. Of course that was after I was told to strip down and put on that stupid hospital/surgical robe, which hasn’t been redesigned in about two centuries. Hey – you are going to be operating on my front side. What’s the purpose of an undersized piece of raggedy cloth serve, that allows the breeze to flow up your back-side? I was freezing, and thank heaven to the gal who got me started, as she found two artist’s canvases, that passed for blankets, that had just come out of a drier. OK, OK – so from that point everything seemed to go alright – what little I remember of it. So it was time to send me home. The phenomenal staff got me dressed and loaded me into my wife’s car as quickly as they could. I was still drugged – but most importantly – I was hungry. Continue reading
Frankly, the only ones who should have been surprised, are the Commmie/Soicialist Media that have supported this bum since he rose from the Illinois Senate on his way to Washington – first to the U.S. Senate – and ultimately by train (like Honest Abe) to the White House.
Of course, there are those who will hail B.O. (not the dog) for reaching out to Brother Raul – but did he have to bow? Oh – that’s right – that is what he always does. So cordial! So polite – and almost always with that shit-eating grin on his face. He was probably asking Raul for a box of Cubano cigars (something for nothing).
In a recent column by Eli Lake on The Daily Beast, the author states, “Tuesday’s greeting between Obama and Castro comes after six months of quiet diplomacy between the United States and Cuba—and Castro signaling he’s ready for bigger talks.”
Diplomacy? Must be why Big Obama supporters Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé were able to take a “vacation” to Havana. Oh yeah baby – it’s those BIG Hollywood types that are setting Foreign Policy!
It’s just a damned shame that Obama doesn’t leave Washington in the same manner as Lincoln. “Choo-choo.. choo-choo Ch’boogie…” (1946. Words and music by Vaughn Horton, Denver Darling, and Milt Gabler. Sung by Louis Jordan)
You don’t have to like it and you don’t have to agree. Just calling it as I see it.
Without Apology I am,
Yes, the Hiatus… continues – but it does NOT mean that I have layed down and died – far from it! Am I accomplishing what I set out to do? No! … but the brain will not shut off… and I prepare to embark on a new adventure – NBSnews.net. (watch closely for an announcement on this soon).
For these past many years, this author and the Federal Observer have tackled many issues, which are of paramount concern to all freedom loving Americans; gun control (the 2nd Amendment), the illegal invasion of this nation (immigration), spirituality (not religion or ‘churchianity, Obama (doesn’t) Care, the intrusion on our privacy and rights (NSA and complete violation of ALL of the original Bill of Rights) – and so many more issues, which we are not prepared to devote a column to, BUT… Continue reading
Eighteen and a half years for FREEDOM.
This is what I have given my life for this past nearly two-decades, and yet today I feel more enslaved that at any time in my life. Each day since June of 1965 I have awakened each day with intent and purpose – to teach, inform and educate the American public of that which we face today under the thumbnail of the Obamanites and their ruthless tyranny – and today I am more enslaved that at any time during my nearly sixty-six years on this earth.
Mind you – I lay the blame, not entirely at the hands of our current Tyrant, Barack Obama – for he is just a symptom of what is lacking in this country. He was chosen as ‘the ONE‘ who was best suited to lead this nation smack-dab into Socialism – albeit – the final nail into the coffin of what was once known as ‘America’ – the greatest experiment in Democracy ever known to exist.
Ok, Ok! Don’t give me this crap about, “We are not a Democracy – we are a Republic.” First of all – we are no longer either – but exist as a nation in name only.
God once may have once “… shed His Grace on thee…” but no longer – and rightfully so. Continue reading
Or do we just say, ‘the hell with it all!’???
~ Forewords ~
It has been about eight months since I have had any desire to write any new columns for this publication, and frankly this is the closest that I am able to come at this point. You will soon understand why.
Earlier today, I received a phone call from a great friend and former contributor to The Federal Observer, Karen-Lee Bixman. Our conversation was comprised of catching up with the world around us – in other words – our families – among other things. Amongst the reasons she called me, was to thank me for having maintained her archives all these years (her last official submission was on January 28, 2004), as her now grown children are beginning to inquire of her work. While doing a quick archival search of our old files, the following column came before me, and while some of the details have changed, my sentiments persist. (NOTE: Due to some technical updates of this site, the old archives of the Federal Observer are no longer available. We are working on bringing them back, and will inform you at such time that this takes place.)
For those readers, who listen to my daily internet-radio broadcast, Life, Liberty & All That Jazz, you will have noticed my
recent ongoing frustrations and anger over the direction of this nation, politically, financially and spiritually – sentiments, which I have visited before. The following I share with you, realizing that I am not alone in my feelings. (JB)
The following column was originally published on the first generation Federal Observer April 25, 2006. Tonight, I am making some minor edits – but nothing has really changed… Continue reading
Who the hell do you think you are fooling, you lying sack of shit?
I understand that you will be portraying ‘the Joker’ in the next Batman movie. I gotta admit – you are a hell of an actor – but you get our ‘Rotten Tomato’ award, turd-wad
You have created each and every crisis – and it has all been by intent.
Go back to the hole you crawled out of. America can no longer afford you and your BULLSHIT!
It’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it.
Without Apology I am,
PS:/NOTE: for those of you who may trip across this and don’t care for my vulgarity – TOUGH SHIT! 90 days from now – contrary to what Obama the Jungle Organizer tells you – we WILL be facing the next round of the demise of this nation – at which time I suspect that THEY will only negotiate until the tulips sprout in May.
The following was submitted to me by a daily reader of the Federal Observer, my comments follow. (J.B.)
Late last night, House Republicans forced through their vote to hold the whole government hostage over Obamacare.
The White House has already threatened to veto their reckless plan.
Now, we need to back them up.
Will you help us reach 100,000 donations to our Obamacare Rapid Response Fund before tomorrow’s FEC fundraising deadline? Continue reading
I have made it known to my radio audience after eighteen years, that although I was taught certain things in my youth, which never leave me – I am not a daily reader of ‘The Word,’ but it doesn’t take much to see what a sick society we have become in America. Sodom and Gomorrah ain’t got nothing on us.
Meet Orlando Shaw, deadbeat sperm donor who fathered 22 chilluns by fo’teen dif’rent wimmins.
DAMN – that brutha be dippin’ his wick whem amz ebah he be wantin’ to. Pay no mind, “de ladies be lovin’ his ax.”
If Orlando is allowed to keep this up (and the state of Tennessee should mandate a vasectomy), then in a few years he’ll be knocking up his own daughters like my man Aswad… Continue reading
I have often thought of myself as one with a twisted sense of humor – but THESE headlines? (and so many more). It all goes to show just how sexual this nation has become. Each of the above are actual headlines over the latest Weiner-sexting scandal – and most come from the mainstream media, who already have their type set for “Weiner Pulls Out!”
But what the heck, if New Yawk really wants him, they’ll just be replacing a dick who doesn’t want you drinking large sodas, with a weiner with a foot-long fetish (his own). Continue reading
What you are about to read, is a compilation of several short columns I wrote and published on the now defunct No Stinking Amnesty website. It is now officially gone, kaput, finis – just as this nation is doing – dying before our very eyes. (Ed.)
In the words of Jim Morrison of The Doors…
My daughter called me in tears, late at night on November 6, 2012 – the night of the re-coronation of the Usurper. She could not understand why the people in this (once great) nation would lend themselves to the travesty perpetrated on America, such as was done on November 6, 2012.
It’s simple my daughter; socialism and Communism – exactly what Joseph McCarthy fought against so many decades ago. Mix in a lot of voting by skin color, and old people in Florida – who should no longer be allowed to vote – and young impressionable college students, who have been promised more free handouts from a government that your father, and millions of employed and no longer employed Americans can no longer afford to support. Let’s throw in the illegal invaders of this country, who in June of this year were dangled a bit of (partial) amnesty – leading to full scale free-ride of the other thirty+ million of them, and let’s not forget all of those people who will get FREE healthcare – provided by – your father and the rest of the hard-working dumb people in this nation, who just feel that it’s OUR obligation to feed, clothe and house every goddamned lazy son-of-a-bitch, who finds it easier to live off the “government” dole, than to be a contributing member of society. Continue reading
As with ‘Fast and Furious,’ the IRS attacks on Tea Party members and other conservative groups, and currently, the continued efforts to shield the truth about what has become known as “Benghazigate,” the Obama administration exists in a continued circle of lies…
As stated in a May 13, 2013 Investor’s Business Daily article,
“Obama has chosen the high-risk strategy that when you lie, lie big and stick to it. Just how many new facts will it take to crack his poker face? In his Monday press conference, President Obama’s damage control strategy became … “perfectly clear.”
In the June 15, 2012 edition of The Weekly Standard, John McCormack recants claims by the Obama administration (as reported by all of the major networks) that,
“Since 2009, the annual average number of deportations has approached 400,000, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Thats double the annual average during President George W. Bushs first term and 30 percent higher than the average when he left office.”
In an August 7, 2012 edition of the Tampa Bay Times, the question is asked, “Has Barack Obama deported more people than any other president in U.S. history?“
And just days ago, Brietbart posts an accusation that, Ice Agent Union President Claims White House Inflates Deportation Numbers. Continue reading
Moments ago, I received the following piece of baloney from a reader, who forwarded to me the latest garbage from one Mark Glaze of Mayors Against Illegal Guns. HELL – even their name is a misnomer. With it – they should attack Holder and the entire O’Bummah regime for Fast and Furious. Now THOSE are illegal guns – MISTER Glaze.
Here is the basis of Glase’s text:
Today, a majority of US Senators (55) voted for common sense gun reform — but they fell short of the 60 votes we needed to close fatal gaps in our background check system. That means 45 senators — representing less than 40 percent of the country — ignored the American public and read the talking points the gun lobby handed them.
Some senators deserve real credit for their leadership today. They include Senators Manchin and Toomey, Majority Leader Reid and Senators Schumer, Kirk, Collins, and McCain (Sen. Manchurian - Ed.). And President Obama and Vice President Biden showed the kind of bold leadership we can be proud of tonight.
But there are those who should be ashamed for the way they voted — and how they lied to hide their motives.
Lied to hide their motives??? Hahahahahaha – that’s what they all do – on both sides of the aisle. My comment to my reader is as follows:
I love these kinds of comments:
“That means 45 senators — representing less than 40 percent of the country — ignored the American public and read the talking points the gun lobby handed them.”
Is this the same way that the electorate ignored the publics cries out against Obama(doesn’t)Care? So we should pay attention to “their” talking (read, “B.S.”) points?
The fact of the matter is – that none of these “control” measures will stop criminals and whackos from doing the nasty in places like Newtown, Aurora, Columbine and elsewhere. HEY! How about them “illegal” pressure cookers? Like with so many other issues (immigration, for one) – Why the hell don’t they just enforce the laws that are already on the books? They can’t! They won’t! Doing so would nullify the very reason for their existence.
We have much bigger problems to deal with in this nation today than the insidious ranting of more of the damned “progressives”!
Why don’t you take a few minutes and (POLITELY) drop Mark Glaze a note, and let him know how you feel. You can do it by just clicking on HERE: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks Barb and John for the heads up!

The Federal Observer

~ Preface ~
On July 22, 2001 I began publishing the Federal Observer, a daily, on-line magazine. This daily journal shared editorial columns by many known and as yet unknown writers, each of whom covered issues such as economics, legal, religion (or more appropriately spiritual issues), conspiracies, Militia, gun-rights, education, environmental, legislative issues and many others. Three days after 9/11, our publication co-wrote and hosted a petition to once again re-arm the pilots on our commercial airlines. Our petition drew millions of participants from all over the nation both from within and outside of the airline industry. Whether we liked it or not, we were on the map.
One of the most important and relevant topics of the day was and still is the illegal invasion of our nation by people from many corners of the world. This subject was amongst our hot-buttons, and it drew the attention of many others who shared our views.
Four and one half years after publication began, in the autumn of 2005 I received a phone call from an interested party; a local woman who not only shared our views, but also felt that she had something to offer us editorially speaking. Enter S. J. Miller, an amazing editorial commentator, and tireless political activist. She had participated in and was extremely vocal in 2004 during Arizonas battle for Proposition 200.
Her experience and involvement in the passage of Proposition 200? in Arizona, made her uniquely qualified as no other, to present the facts on this timely issue.
Proposition 200, the “Arizona Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act,” was an Arizona state initiative passed in 2004 that basically requires:
(a) persons to provide proof of citizenship to register to vote;
(b) voters to present a photo identification before receiving a ballot at the polling place; and
(c) state and local agencies to verify the identity and eligibility, based on immigration status, of applicants for non-federally mandated public benefits
The proposition also made it a misdemeanor for public officials to fail to report violations of U.S. immigration law by applicants for those public benefits and permits private lawsuits by any resident to enforce its provisions related to public benefits. The requirement to provide proof of citizenship to register to vote was later ruled invalid in federal court.
Authors of the ballot measure, the “Protect Arizona Now” committee, wrote it because of a serious concern for lax voter registration and voting procedures and concerns that public services to immigrants from neighboring Mexico, many of whom are illegal immigrants, were too costly.
Opponents called it anti-immigrant, and considered it to be reminiscent of California’s 1994 Proposition 187.
In November 2004, the electorate passed Proposition 200, with 56% of voters voting in the affirmative. Exit polls found that 47% of Latino voters voted in favor of the initiative.
Proposition 200 required, among other things, proof of citizenship to register to vote and voter identification at the polling place. No major elections took place after its adoption before November 7, 2006, and the actual implementation of these two provisions of the proposition remained unclear. Opponents challenged the constitutionality of these requirements upon voters, arguing that such a law could be used to discriminate against ethnic groups, thus violating the Fourteenth Amendment.
On October 5, 2006, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit temporarily suspended these requirements, a little over a month before the election. However, the ruling was stayed fifteen days later by the U.S. Supreme Court.
In October 2010, the Ninth Circuit held that the requirement to provide proof of citizenship to register to vote is invalid as preempted by the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA) and that the requirement to provide voter identification at the polling place is valid. However, in April 2011, the court granted Arizona’s petition for en banc review of this ruling, and it heard oral arguments on June 21, 2011.
In April 2012, the en banc court also held that the requirement to provide proof of citizenship to register to vote is invalid as preempted by the NVRA and that the requirement to provide voter identification at the polling place is valid. The Supreme Court of the United States declined to stay the ruling on June 28, 2012.
This was Sandys entry into the fight against the illegal invasion of the united States of America; and she fought the fight until the very end of her time on this earth.
Her twelve-part series, Dont be fooled by peddlers of Immigration Reform Scams was first published on The Federal Observer beginning January 24, 2005 and concluded, February 18th of that year. Given the mindset of the current administration in Washington, D.C., and its penchant for pandering to every special interest group in the nation; Millers work remains timely. In addition, this complete presentation of Miller’s original work will provide you with tools to participate in what could prove to be Americas last and greatest battle to maintain its sovereignty.
We invite you to study Sandras works closely, and use her words – as an educational tool. Some of the names of the players have changed, such as Ted Kennedy (his ghost lives and walks among us), but the game plan hasnt changed. As Arizona and other states, continue to pave the way for action, Millers work will reach an entire new readership and maybe maybe this time it will make people around the nation wake up and make demands of their elected officials.
It has been reported that by late 2013 the Hispanic population in California will be greater than that of the white population; much of this due to the Liberal/Progressive agenda of the politicians of that state and of their staunch supporters in the District of Criminals. Individual cities, such as Chicago and Seattle (with the aid of the likes of Lornet Turnbull) welcome all comers to their sanctuary cites with open arms all to the detriment of the American unemployed and at the expense to the American taxpayer.
What? You thought that all of the benefits that illegal invaders receive are FREE??? Sorry my friends but someone has to pay for all of those handouts.
In conclusion, what you are about to read is not racist in nature. Illegal Is illegal, whether one comes from China, Viet Nam, France, Mexico, Morocco, Iran or Iraq, South America or the satellite nations of the former Soviet Union. Breaking and entering into our country in violation of all of the immigration laws on the books, is no different than invading my home or yours. Bringing a pregnant woman to this land, just for the purpose of allowing her to give birth, in order to create an anchor, so that mother, child and an extended familial group can also put down roots is criminal, and the practice should be stopped immediately.
These were Sandras passions, and in effect these battles are her story. It is our story, and it was her fight, as well as it should be yours.

(the 8th anniversary of Millers first publication on the Federal Observer)
With homage and LOve to my friend of over 50 years,
Author of Deadly Valentines
Early this morning, I received a note from one of my readers and listeners to my daily talk show. BE WARNED: Some of you will not like the coarseness of the language in my response, but then – that’s life. (JB)
…you been sounding a little less than low lately. Today I left you one in the Federal Observer section of the YEmail, but I need to tell you that next time you need to take one of those fishing trips, I suggest you head for Eagle Nest and swing by the Vietnam Memorial at Angle Fire…
…If you can make it all the way through that one, without breaking down, well, you’re a better man than I…
…the point of going through is to realize that you ain’t still there.
..and I think that’s all I need to say about it…trust me…
Thanks for your concern and note, but frankly – the war we are in today is a lot tougher than a bunch of black pajamaed slanty-eyed little gooks. Those muther-fuckers I could just shoot. It’s not so easy with these cock-suckers…
Yeah – we’re still there… but this time, the jungle is steel and concrete – but they have the same basTURDS working for their media. Remember the outcome of Nam????
I’m just waiting for the Huey to pick me up from the roof-top…
Remember these words, “We gotta get out of this place, if it’s the last thing we ever do…”
Last evening, my wife and I went out for dinner at Ruby Tuesday’s in Avondale, Arizona, as it it is one of our favorite places to dine – and last night was exceptional.
As we entered, I noticed three uniformed U.S. Army soldiers sitting at the bar. As we were walking toward our table, the manager walked toward me, and I asked her to buy the guys a drink “on me.” She thanked me, and I thought that this would be the end of it.
We were seated and drew Eric, a nice young guy as our server. We ordered drinks (wine for the wife, handcrafted raspberry tea for me), and an appetizer and our entree’s. About the time our drinks were served, one of the GI’s approached our table and stated, “I heard a rumor that you bought us a drink,” to which I replied, “rumors aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.” We both laughed as he thanked me, and soon the other two guys walked over to also thank us… Continue reading
I swore that I would not watch these damned debates, but lo and behold – the wife had it on, so I had no choice.
To say the least, on this – Obama’s 20th wedding anniversary – America saw once again, that Obama without tele-prompter – comes across as weak.
I give this one to Mr. Romney, who was well prepared and handled himself – uh – er – well – Presidentially. But watch out Governor – Obama will be better prepared the next time…
Without Apology I am,
Recently, while perusing headline in various publications across the land, I came upon an article about a group of ‘occupiers’, who had commandeered an abandoned building in Chapel Hill, NC. The group called themselves – what else – “Occupy Chapel Hill.” WOW – was that original! What an expensive education these useful idiots must have received to come up with that name.
Upon reading their Chapel Hill Manifesto, I decided to post a comment to their blog. It’s now nearly midnight of the day I posted my commentary – and they have rejected it. Surprise, surprise! I’ll share it with you here – and once you have finished reading it, read the commentary which follows. I didn’t write it – but it sure fits the OWS crowd – to a tee – or is that ‘Tea’?
You decide… Continue reading
Friday’s are a rough day on the air, and I frankly haven’t gone ‘live’ for about five weeks. The audience is smaller, as many folks are off to the High School football games or the movies. Hell – I’d be fishing if I had my way. But then, in 16 plus years on the air, as is recorded in the Holy Bible – I guess that I have become a “fisher of men”.
This Friday would be different… Continue reading
On Friday, June 17th, Granny (#1) sent me one of Linda Bentley’s columns dealing with what ostensibly I would labeled “racist studies” in Arizona classrooms. Specifically, the Tucson Unified School District’s “Raza Studies” program, studies which, 1) promoted resentment towards a race or class of people; 2) were designed primarily for pupils of a particular ethnic race; and 3) advocated ethnic solidarity instead of the treatment of pupils as individuals.
Each are in complete violation of the Arizona Revised Staute §15-112 which states, A school district or charter school in this state shall not include in its Program of Instruction any courses or classes that include any of the following…”
The course has recently been renamed, ‘Mexican-American Studies‘. Frankly, there is NOTHING American about these “history” courses. Continue reading
Once in awhile when I complete a column (of course I hadn’t posted one of my own since early in the year) I’ll send it out to a select few people – you know they type – the ones who CARE about America – the ones who COUNT – the ones who GIVE A SHIT!?!?!?
So the day goes on and I hear from Granny (#1), Biesada (the ONLY one), Ewart (who gets fed up from time to time as well) and finally – Ross. You remember Ross don’t you? He’s the intellectual, who idolizes and reads the likes of Tommy Jefferson (who helped move an entire nation on up), little Jimmy Madison, Slammin’ Sammy Adams, and the other guy who had been to Franklin. Then there was the joint smokin’ dude from the Mount Vernon Country Club and his buddy who got killed – you know – the cat on the $10 bill – Hamilton Beach. He has read and studied the words of P. Henry (no relation to ‘O’) – and a whole bunch of those founding Muthas!
Nice history lesson Huh?? Gotcha hooked now, don’t I? Continue reading
