…and so in the scheme of things, you actually believe that all we have done 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.’
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.” Continue reading →
This song was written by Billy Ray Cyrus in 1989 as a Tribute to a Viet Nam Veteran he had met – and to all those who sacrificed in so many way. So to all of those in the NFL who have chosen to “take a knee” – you had better give thanks – and get down on your knees in prayer – and ask for forgiveness. ~ Jeffrey Bennett, Publisher, Kettle Moraine Publications

Several years ago on a reunion trip with several of my cohorts from the rice paddies, the boys went out for lunch, while I stayed behind at the hotel in Newport, California to make some notes and write a bit of remembrance. The three of us had spoken for several years about collaborating on a book about our time together over ‘there’ – but I began to realize that both of the guys were bullshit artists, and really had no desire to follow through, and so I decided to write a preface – to what I hope would become my story about the twenty-one months I spent in the Far East – VietNam. What came out of that several hours of peace, can be read HERE. I would highly recommend that you read it before you continue… but – at your discretion…
As for now – we pick up where we left off… ~ Jeffrey Bennett, Publisher and Veteran Continue reading →
“In the beginning of a change, the Patriot is a scarce man and brave, hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a Patriot.” ~ Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens)
If the Heavenly Father should choose to call me home this day, no one can say that I haven’t been involved with the fight. And on this day, we have come out the victor in a major battle with the United States of America, Inc., for by this hour on Thursday night, the United States Senate voted in favor of Senate Bill (SB) 2554, commonly known as Arming Pilots Against Terrorism and Cabin Defense Act of 2002.
Three days after the attacks of September 11th, 2001 The Federal Observer, in conjunction with Armed Females of America posted the petition, which would ultimately lead to victory to restore a commercial airline pilot’s right to be armed in defense of his aircraft, his crew and ultimately – his passengers. Three hundred and fifty-nine days after our modern “Day of Infamy”, this second leg of our battle for America has been won – now onto the President’s desk. In less than one year – with the work, which we had begun – we have witnessed victory with the help, efforts and assistance of the Airline Pilots Security Alliance – an organization, which did not exist until after our petition came along.

Singing ‘Amen and Hallelujah’ to the Electric Company
I have watched this story all week long and it makes me sick. I’ll not recant the saga – if you don’t know it by now – you never will. Yet this morning, I went to one of my normal trap lines and came across the Divine Profit Osteen’s * latest variation on his story of turning away people from his Lakewood Church in Houston – people who were seeking safety.
A note from the publisher of Metropolis Café.
The short two paragraphs which you are about to read – I sincerely hope that you will make a commitment – for your children, your grandchildren and for the future direction of the Republic in which we live. What Kim Allsup presents – IS the ANSWER to the problems which we all share in this nation. As one who served our Nation in the military both in Europe and Viet Nam, and one who has continued to serve for nearly two decades on-the-air – I implore you to make a pledge and contribution to this amazingly worthwhile project. I will be doing so as well.
Thank you for your consideration in assisting Kim Allsup with this important project.
Since President Trump (it’s nice for the first time in over eight years to be able to say that word, ‘President‘) signed his Executive Order dealing with the blockage of ‘refugees’ from 7 Nations – all hell seems to have broken loose… and it’s about time, BUT…
Deportations which have been getting swept under the rug for years, if not decades are beginning to happen, yet no thanks to the 9th Circuit Court – unvetted, questionable individuals are being allowed to not only enter the country, but to come and go as they please. Who are they? What are they? What do they represent? What do they REALLY want? Continue reading →
What we begin this day, is the culmination of a nearly 17 year-long project by Kettle Moraine, Ltd. Publications, which includes the intellectual battle which led to the formation of the Law of the Land – our Constitution! In addition, we will be publishing those papers and proclamations which came before, including such works as the Mayflower Compact and The Articles of Confederation, some of which have been previously published in our book, AMERICA the Grand Illusion ~ BOOK I: Orphans of the Storm
This project will be completed soon – but is still an intense project to complete, as there over 700 pages of records to load (to include possible cross-references between both the Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers alone) – and hopefully our end result will provide one of the most thorough and complete dissertations of these monumental records ever published on-line – with (planned for) links connecting the ‘Point’ and ‘Counterpoint’ views of the participants and authors. We look forward to the insight and involvement of Neal Ross on this portion of the project.
For teachers and educators – as well as those who just want to expand their historical knowledge – we are proud to bring this project to you… and so we begin.
As I near the end of my sixth decade in this life, I continue to look back in awe of all of the many changes which have occurred – not just in my lifetime – but throughout history. History… something that is no longer dealt with to any degree of honesty in this nation – especially in the public education system. When did it all begin to change? When was TRUTH removed from our system? It may have left the system – but it has not left me.
I look back at my (somewhat) formative years, and to this day I can still remember the names of over 90% of my teachers. Those who I cannot remember, obviously had little impact on me. Some were neighbors, others became tutors to me in troubled areas – long after they were no longer a part of my daily life, and still others I met some years later, and were surprised that I could actually instruct them. But as with many of us, there is always one…
It was 1958 and that year I attended the Crestwood Elementary School in Northbrook, Illinois. It was this one fortuitous year that I would receive the greatest gift of my ‘formal’ education – a year to remember for many reasons – chiefly among them was my teacher – Donald Adair… [Continue to the Metropolis Café}
With today’s offerings – I return to the issue, which angers me the most – the intentional invasion and ultimate destruction of this Nation.
The following five offerings (the first since returning from my ‘fishing’ trip) were a part of my broadcast, Life, Liberty & All That Jazz on December 19, 2016.
If I had one single issue, which I could address each and every day – the Invasion of America would be that subject – and with it – the desire for change… Not only the change of taking America back from those who have sold us out, but the name of this website.
For those of you who served “in Country” back in the 1960’s and 70’s – you (‘no Dinky Dau’) will understand the meaning of my desire for change…
The development of a brand new website, called:didiMau.com, which translates loosely into…
Get the phuock outta here!
But for now – you’ll need to continue to find our commentary on this issue posted within the pages of the Federal Observer.
“I am only walking as God fore-ordained I should walk. All my actions, even the folly leading to this disaster, were decreed to happen long ages before this world began. But I cannot remember a night so dark as to have hindered the coming days, or a storm so furious as to prevent the return of warm sunshine in the country at peace. I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land can never be purged away but with blood. I let them hang me. I forgive them and may God forgive them, for they know not what they do.” ~ Raymond Massey as John Brown, Santa Fe Trail, Warner Bros. Pictures, 1940 Continue reading →
Yesterday was interesting enough when it was reported that in a vote of 97-1 (the only rebel being one-eyed Harry Reid), the Senate voted to override President Obama’s veto of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA).
It was expected that the House of Representatives would take up the issues next week. It only took one day for them to overwhelmingly override Obama’s Veto of Bill Allowing Terror Victims to Sue Foreign Governments – the first such rebuke to Himz-elf since he took office. The House voted 348-77 to overturn Buckwheat’s Friday veto of the bill. Families of the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks have long sought the right to sue Saudi Arabia for any alleged role in the attacks, which the kingdom has denied.
The White House has warned that the U.S. could ultimately end up facing lawsuits in foreign courts, putting American service members at legal risk, should the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act take effect – a view shared by many legal experts.
OK – now you understand the groundwork, which led to the following conversation between Granny and myself… Continue reading →
Sunday morning I received an email from Father O’Leary asking me the question posed in the title of this column.
I was referred to a column on Economy and Market entitled, Harvard Economist Warns “$700 Gold by Mid-2017″. While visiting the column, I noticed another column titled, “Property Prices to Drop 40%” (in actuality – it was an advertisement).
Well – for one – if “column” #2 is accurate then the Harvard Economist is an idiot – but we are getting away from the point of this post…
No, this is not a story of sexual perversion so if that is what you are looking for – just go find yourself an ostrich and… Oh – nevermind!
Over the past twenty-one years of broadcasting, I have been privileged to cover such subjects as YOUR Financial, Physical, and Spiritual well-being, education, news, Federal and local legislative issues, which will affect our future, political satire (with a twist), and editorial commentary on current events through the teaching of history.
Under normal circumstances and so-called ‘normal’ times, I would put forth the effort Continue reading →
The Federal Observer was born July 24, 2001 – a mere 50 days before 9/11, and next week we will be full of nearly every broadcast in the country re-airing as much footage as they possibly can, but…
For just one minute – let’s buy into the official story spun by Washington DeCeit… and pretend that it was a bunch of Rag Heads that did the dirty deed…
If in fact this was the case, then why are the American borders open to every damn one of their cousins who want to come to this nation and inflict their evil ways upon us? It’s like ‘Three Blind Mice’ – they want to “cut off our heads with a…” – well – you get the idea.
“…to realize the the problems of this world don’t amount to much. After all – we’ll always have muffins!” ~ Rick
For someone who is “manhandled” by her boss, I always thought that she was rather attractive.
As Craig T. commented in our initial commentary about Huma ‘severing‘ relations with the Weiner:
What are the chances that the whole debacle has been written, rehearsed, and laughed at by them before it was turned into the contemporaneously publicized vomit? It seems to me that they’re all going to hell as fast as they can. But who am I, shy of another idiot? As for Hilrod & Huma making each other’s carpet minty fresh…good, they’ll breed each other outta existence.
But let’s face it here, what the hell was a Muslim woman doing marrying a Jew in the first place. It was only a matter of time before she would cut his ‘head’ off – but then – he always was a dick anyway. Continue reading →
As I prepare to leave on my annual – uh – uh – fishing expedition (yeah – yeah – that’s what we call it) with my ‘Nam Brothers – I have put myself into overload – BUT it will be you who may not be able to handle it all.
I’ll be around from time to time to check up on who seems to get it – and who no longer gives a damn.
Which one will you be?
Watch your backs and keep the powder dry and your ‘instruments’ well oiled. I am packing and I come ready.
As you may have noticed – updates have been few and far between lately – other than the occasional political statement made through images. Well – I’ve got myself into another fine mess as I am doing clean-up, some minor repair work, landscaping and painting at my daughter’s home before we put it on the market.
Seems like we have been here before. My old team of Craig and Riley are working with me on this project as well – but it won’t be a long one. Should be done in about 4 to six weeks – then I am off to Calee-fornicate and Morro Bay for a week on an annual retreat with two friends from the Jungles of ’68 to ’70.
So why the pic of Snake with the eye patch? Apparently I damaged my dominant eye by using my smaller, traveling laptop for the past week. It felt somewhat swollen and painful to the point of general discomfort. Sometime during the night on Saturday, I must have rubbed it in my sleep – which exacerbated the situation and I awoke with a huge purple mark just off of my nose. Scared the hell out of me and the doc says that I need to not use it too much for the next few days – kind of stay off of the computer. I brought the Big Mac from the office – and I can SEE the damned thing – but still want to be careful for a few more days. Then we’ll get back to work.
Until then – just tune in to Life, Liberty & All That Jazz – won’t-cha? And I’ll TRY to be there everyday this week – but no promises. Life happens.
Oh – and one more thing. On Saturday (May 7th) I stopped by my old home to see Armando and his wife and to bring them a bottle of wine to celebrate. It was the one year anniversary of the day I closed the door for the last time on MY home and turned it over to some marvelous people. They have maintained my dream, decorated it beautifully and expanded upon my original plans.
Over the past few months, many of us have been watching the beautiful but ultimate end of one journey and the beginning of another. The story of Country Music entertainer, Joey Feek, her husband Rory and their now two year old daughter, Indiana has been a wonder to watch. Continue reading →
Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead of apparent natural causes Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas, federal officials said.
Scalia, 79, was a guest at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, a resort in the Big Bend region south of Marfa.
According to a report, Scalia arrived at the ranch on Friday and attended a private party with about 40 people. When he did not appear for breakfast, a person associated with the ranch went to his room and found a body.
And so now the battles begin, and the RepublicRATS in Washington DeCeipt had better be on their guard. Let’s be honest – we already have three left-leaning women serving in the United States Supreme Court; Clarence Thomas who is still looking for pubic hair on a coke can; and John Roberts – who sold out to the Obama Administration (on ObamaCare) the minute he read letters to the Editor of the New York Times that swayed his vote.
So that cares for six who “serve.” I don’t know enough about the rest of them to be able to make a determined assessment – but we are in trouble.
Who will be chosen? Eric Holder? He’s making too much money in the private sector now. Obama can’t nominate himself (although Biden might like that). We could have an open gay nominated, but I suspect that there might already be some LBGT types up there already – besides – they already crammed deviancy up our wazoos anyway. HEY – about one of B.O.’s Muslim buddies to the Supreme Court.
YUP – that would just about guarantee Sharia Law in this nation.
We are doomed.
Statement from Mitch McConnell
Rest in Peace Justice Scalia. Have a glass of Chianti on us. You will be missed.
Men, Women and Manettes – I love you all! Finally – a gross image that got your juices flowing, but – but – but – where is that butt-head Snarky to disagree and tell us that, “Wikipedia tells ME that this is impossible! There is no way the three elected officials would ever stoop to such vulgarity.“
Well Snark-one – you lose buddy, because each of them do it WITH each other each and every day they are in session. Don’t believe me? Tonight is the State of the Onion address by YOUR boy from the South Side – except this time – they all be sticking it up our a….. Don’t you know – it’s an annual ritual. Continue reading →

It has been a long time 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.)
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 and subsequently republished in 2013. Some columns never go out of style. Tonight, I have made some minor edits – but nothing has really changed… Continue reading →
