As with the monthly questionable employment/unemployment figures issued by this administration, along with the bogus economic growth figures and the inflation reports…
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. That’s double the annual average during President George W. Bush’s 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?“
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: email@example.com
~ 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 Arizona’s 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 Sandy’s 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, “Don’t 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; Miller’s 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 America’s last and greatest battle to maintain its sovereignty.
We invite you to study Sandra’s 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 hasn’t changed. As Arizona and other states, continue to pave the way for action, Miller’s 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 Sandra’s 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.
January 24, 2013
(the 8th anniversary of Miller’s first publication on the Federal Observer)
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…
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.
For those readers, who listen to my daily internet-radio broadcast, Life, Liberty & All That Jazz, you will have noticed my recent 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.
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’?
“Bennett! What in the hell are you doing to the Federal Observer? It’s just a site with a bunch of headlines dealing with illegal immigrants!”
First of all – they are NOT ‘immigrants’ – they are illegal aliens – invaders!
Well, dear readers… if you haven’t figured it out by now – it IS amongst the biggest problems facing the united States today, and so…
For over ten years, since the inception of the original Federal Observer in July of 2011, this subject has been one that I have put the most effort into fighting – and the battle recently became dirtier, when the illegal nephew of an illegal alien from Massachusetts, decided to grant amnesty by decree. I’m talking about da man here – da Kingfish himz-by-god self, Barry Soetoro, Barack Hussein Obama – the trespasser, who currently resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
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”.
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.
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?
Anthony Weiner has announced his bid for President. He has chosen Eric holder as his running mate. Make sure to hurry out and get your ‘Weiner-Holder‘ bumper sticker.
The whole damned country is living in La La land!
YUP, that’s about it. The whole damned country is living nothing but a fantasy. Fairyland on stilts – looking over the fence to see who is screwing the next door neighbor’s wife, while her hubby is down the street boinking some other gal.
Ten years ago this month, I was in the final stages of developing the Federal Observer. It’s hey-day came and went like a lighting bug in the ‘burbs of Chicaga. We were basically done within three years. Today it’s purpose is merely old habit I suspect – just something that I can refer to on my daily broadcast, “Life, Liberty & All That Jazz“.
Since our first day of publication, the delusional attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon have taken place, and America had the final nail of her coffin, shoved right up it’s ass.
“Why, Mr. Bennett… do you REALLY have to use such vulgar language?”
After many months of toiling over the issue, Friday, October 29, 2010 was the final hour of my fifteen year old program, ‘Perspectives on America‘. Joe McNeil of the Micro Effect has been fully aware of my need to transition to another venue, strictly for financial reasons, yet I remain committed to the cause of The Micro Effect, as I hope that you will be – not only as a listener to the many fine hours of broadcasting and exceptionally talented broadcasters, but also the financial commitment, which is required to operate and expand such an endeavor.
Although I have made the choice to provide my services elsewhere, I have committed a $1,000 contribution to the Micro Effect, and hope that you will make your best effort to contribute to the MIcro Effect – along with other listeners – to help match that figure.
I know that the economy is in dire straits, and that many listeners are hanging by a thread from month to month – and to you I say, don’t hurt your families by taking bread from their mouths, or shoes from their feet – this I understand, and would never ask you to give up the necessities of these times.
As for those who can afford the twelve or twenty-four pack each week = how about sacrificing the cost of a case now and then? Every dollar goes toward the best cause I know of – America – and the need to restore her to her greatness.
With the aid of the Micro Broadcasters, and yourself – the Micro Effect Radio Broadcast Network will continue to fight the fight, and whether win, lose or draw – I know that we’ll one day meet our Maker, and know that we have fought the good fight – we have taken the stand for righteousness.
Won’t you step up to the pump, with the most generous offering, you and your family can make? After all, this isn’t some phony 501c3 operation – and we are reaching an audience – but the Micro Effect needs your help, in order to move forward.
I’ll drop in from time to time, just to say hello, as a guest or possibly a guest host – after all – the war is being fought on many fronts.
As to my whereabouts, you’ll be able to continue following me right here at the Federal Observer, and GoldenIRA.net – and oh yes, I am out there somewhere with a brand new program called, Life, Liberty & All That Jazz. Yup – you know me and my music.
I rejoined RBN in September 2010, as a broadcaster, and as Director of Marketing for Republic Trading Group International in September of 2010, and host of ‘Life, Liberty & All That Jazz’. I bring with me, over 50 years personal experience in all things precious metals and rare coins, in addition to 20 years professional experience, and have taken the Republic Trading Group in radically new directions. “After all, it is YOUR money!”
Thanks to all of you, who have been with me on this ride for the past fifteen and one-half years. Thanks also you also for the emails of support, which I have received from many of you over this weekend – but the fight isn’t won yet… and I have miles to go before I sleep.
Be strong, for your families, and for your Nation, and most of all – be Blessed.
As we reach the end of this road, I’ll see you at Sundown.
Bill and I have been busy in Northern Arizona since Thursday night. The scent of the pine-air and the sight of those tall trees, has provided rejunivation for both of us.
Three nights at the Arizona Mountain Ranch outside of Williams, AZ – whose main claim to fame, was that it was the last American town to passed by Interstate 40 – putting the final death spike into Route 66 – except that it didn’t.
It’s been a long time coming, and I know… a change is gonna come HERE!!!!
So, Sam Cooke said it before I, and he sang it so much better.
As Ahnold may have said, “I am Bach!”
Are we going to maintain this look? Hell, I don’t know, but I know, that for old guys like me – I can read it – AND – I get to post the entire image at the top of this page, courtesy of some video game. The image should be called, “If I could dream!”
I am now of the distinct belief, that it is the only answer to the problems of our once great and grand Republic. They should all go home – or they should Go Home. I’ll let you figure out the meaning.
Well, Thursday morning, I’m going fishing with Bill O’Brian for a few days, so for you writers, crank it up – and we’ll soon be back on the attack!
O’Bummah kisses the ass-ets of the Muslims in the White House, while celebrating the beginning of Ramadan (or is that Ram it in?). He cancels the National Day of Prayer, two years in a row, because he might offend some of his ‘friends’, then goes across the country and tries ot cover his own ineptness, by explaining away his “intent” of supporting the building of a Mosque near ‘Ground Zero’, which for those who are too dumb to remember, was the site, where the World Trade Center used to stand.
I’m bored. I never much cared for the 2nd incarnation of the Federal Observer – so I thought that I would mess witcho mind today. You know – time for some morning coffee?
Maybe I should just turn this thing into a soft-porn site. It all has to do with S-E-X anyway – I mean, most Americans bend over for the soap all day, everyday anyway – so why not give them what they are used to.
Nearly twenty months into the nightmare of the American journey toward socialism, several things hit me over the past several days, and amongst them – the question, “What does it mean to be a man?”
You pick the issue in this nation today, the national debt, the deficit, illegal immigration, unemployment, the Gulf Oil “spill”, the fact that the Cubs still haven’t won a World Series, the cost of Michelle’s trip to Spain, the trade imbalance, the backed up plumbing in the White House, the death of an adoptive sister, “Racism” in America, 9/11… and so much more.
Doesn’t matter – it’s ALL Bush’s fault.

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end. ~ Neal H. Ross
