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…
My response to the Good Man that he is… Continue reading
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
What… You don’t like the images below?
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.
So now the Federal Observer has surpassed its fifteen year anniversary, but I continue to ask myself, “why?” What the hell do I bother for? Continue reading
“…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
The most beautiful image I have ever seen.
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
A few words between old friends…
I’ve been in New Yawk for the past week and am flying home later today. It’s beginning to snow.
“Wait! Didn’t Al the Gorical tell us that there would be no more snow?”
Of course he did, because he knew that we were all going to Hell anyway. I mean, the only global warming is escaping from the mouths and anal portals of our elected official-DUMB in D.C.
“Yup, and these Devil incarnates will definitely be leading the way back down into the hole from which they sprang.”
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. Continue reading
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
Or do we just say, ‘the hell with it all!’???
~ Forewords ~
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.) Continue reading

The following post has been erroneously attributed to Chuck Yeager, a retired brigadier general in the United States Air Force and record-setting test pilot. However – on review, it has been established that Yaeger has never offered any such support of Mr. Trump. Another Urban Legend gone awry, HOWEVER…
… although we at the Federal Observer do not currently endorse ANY person currently attempting to take up residency at 1600, we thought, “sure, why the hell not?” – and so we post the following for your consideration. It will be up to you – the reader to investigate the accuracy of said post. (Editor)
I know, I know…. “but Bennett, this is just too incendiary. It’s politically incorrect.”
Well… let’s just say that I have never been too concerned about just who the hell I offended. My goal has always been to bring an alternative thought process to the table – and more importantly – a little something called TRUTH!
Thank you Donald Adair. You are still my inspiration over sixty years later.
What you are about to read (80 pages of book print) was written by Samuel Augustus Steel in 1914 – a mere half-century after the end of the War of Northern Aggression. The book was published by the The R. L. Bryan Company of South Carolina – yes THAT South Carolina – where the Confederate Battle Flag was just removed from the South Carolina State Capitol recently. Shame on them all!
“A nation that is ignorant of its past, is a nation that is ripe for deception and manipulation. Therefore, it is not what happened, but rather what people believe happened which determines the present actions of a nation.” ~ Warriors of Honor
Eddie: “I have no memory of ever being bit by any kind of bee.”
Slim: [interjecting] “Were you?”
Over the past year as I have completed a ten month long project of home restoration, I began to note something I had never witnessed before – not to the degree I have seen now – dead bees laying on the ground. Sometimes there is just one, sometimes several – and even on one occasion – several dozen. Continue reading
Or something like that.
May 31, 2015: My wife and I have had tickets for Phantom of the Opera at Gammage Auditorium since my birthday (a present you know), and so as beat as I am we left her house (hahahahah) at about 11:20 for a 1:00 p.m. curtain call. If you get their early enough – you are guaranteed a parking spot nearby.
I am now fully packed for my uh – ‘fishing trip‘ – yeah – that’s what I call it, so we were easy breezy, except that I had not been to Gammage in some years, so it took a bit of driving around the May pole to remember where it was. We made it in time for a great parking spot – but too early to be seated – that would be another 20 minutes or so – and God – I am tired… Continue reading
My Eleventh Moon has come and gone. It has been the most peaceful night in some time. It’s raining tonight with much thunder and lightening – my favorite kind of weather. The rainbow home is holding up well as of this hour.
I shall miss this place – but will be back many times in the years to come.
I’ll be away for a few days both in print and on the air as I complete moving back into my home.
My apologies to those writers who have submitted their work for publication.
I will see you toward the end of the week.
Without Apology I am,
Dateline: March 1, 2015
This past eight months have gone by, and I owe our readers an apology.
On June 23rd, 2014 I moved into my son’s home in Phoenix, Arizona, with the intent of a two month clean-up, paint and minor repair renovation. The purpose: To resell the home at a fair and comfortable profit for the kids. It sure beat selling it for less that what they had paid but two years earlier.
The intent of well laid plans wasn’t meant to be. In a few more days I will be witnessing my ninth full moon in this place, which I now recognize as Heaven on Earth. For those who regularly listen to my daily broadcast, this project has turned into one of total restoration of a home that was built sometime before 1955 and 1962. The jury seems to be out on that one as of yet – but we’ll get it figured out. Continue reading
There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can’t my dream come true…
Yesiree Bob and Bobettes – after the Holy-day known as Martin Luther King Day – we shall be “privileged” to watch the U.S. Capital SELL-ebrate another faux Holy-day – the annual State of the Dis-Union address by his Whole-i-ness Barry Soetoro – the Usurper in Chief!
Yassuh – that’s the night that politically situated guests are all invited to listen to another bore-ing (mis-spelling intentional) bunch o’ B.S. from de man ob de Century – B.O. (and man does he stink). We’ll get to see the camera pan himz lobely wife (the ‘chef’ ob de school cafeteria) probably sitting next to the likes of Michael Brown’s parents – or maybe even de self-righteous “Reberend” Al Sharptongue – hell – it might even be the Administration’s new Ambassadors to Cuba – Beyonce and Jay-Z! How come they got to go, when travel to and from Castroland was forbidden?
Hey you Pansy-ass from Chi-town – or Honolulu, or Kenya – stick that Cubano Delgado where the moon don’t shine – then stuff it in yo’ mouf and light it up! Continue reading
By now, most of you know that Robby Noel will be leaving this geographical region of the Earth within a matter of days from this post.
September 8, 2014 marked the final broadcast on the Micro Effect and September 9, 2014 for the Republic Broadcasting Network. Time marches on and Robby has made a decision to return home to his family rather than participate in the ongoing destruction of this once great republic. Continue reading
The best time of my life… for now!
June 23, 2014: I moved into my son’s house, as he and his family had relocated to Ohio for a two year run before moving on to North Carolina (which will give me an excuse to visit Donna).
My job? Renovate this house and prepare to put it on the market.
The project has been a longer and more difficult one than I had suspected, as we spent considerable time re-plastering a large portion of the main body of the house – the so-called “living area,” which includes the entry way, original living room, kitchen and dining area. There were so many different textures on walls that it looked like a jig-saw puzzle gone wrong. Continue reading
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 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
God I wish I could poop!
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… 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.
