The Heart of the Problem

It matters not what the problems of the nation are – illegal immigration, gun (read, “people“) control, employment, abortion, health, education, welfare or anyone of a hundred or a thousand different issues – the problems will NEVER be resolved by those who we have been repeatedly sending over back to Washington, D.C. – some of them for many decades.

I have been away…

For those regular readers of the Kettle Moraine Publications family of web-sites/Blogs – whatever you wish to call them you’ll note that with one exception, Metropolis Café we have been away for several weeks. Have we been fishing? In a round-about way, I guess so – but not for my usual desirable ‘catch’ – that is only for a past life. I’ll not bore you today with what I have been up to, other than to say it has also affected my daily broadcasts. I have been on extended hiatus there as well. I will return to the airwaves soon, however consider the following… Continue reading

It’s Over!

…and so in the scheme of things, you actually believe that all we have published 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.’ Is that meant to be negative comment regarding the President? No – just a factual statement!

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.”

To all of the ‘underprivileged‘ whiners of the NFL…

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

In the Garden of Eden: A Tribute… and thanks

~ Forewords ~
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

First came September 11, 2001, and then…

Victory!: It’s a Good Day to Die

“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.

All Praise Osteen the Profit

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.

Oh – you’ll want to see the complete photo essay that accompanies the written word. God knows Houston can handle this. Oy Vey!

And it all reminded me of the circus surrounding Jake and Elwood you know – the Blues Brothers!

* Reference to the not so-good ‘Profit’ – not the Prophet.

A Gift of Wonder, A True Story Showing School As It Should Be

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.

It’s finally happening, BUT…

What will be the Consequences?

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
