A veteran of Viet Nam, student of history (both American and film), Jeffrey Bennett has been broadcasting for over eighteen years as host of Perspectives on America, and later - 'Life, Liberty & All That Jazz.' Jeff is considered the voice of reason on the alternative media - providing a unique and distinctive broadcast style, including topics such as health and wellness, news, political satire - with a twist, education and editorial commentary on current events through the teaching of history.
In addition, Jeff publishes The Federal Observer - a daily on-line publication, which co-authored and spear-headed a petition, which ultimately caused new legislation to be signed by President George W. Bush within 450 days of the events that rocked our world on September 11, 2001.
Well, THAT got your attention, but you see – what we present here, is not some racist BS (although the title above may indicate otherwise). Nope… going through some archives a few minutes ago, I came across one of our posts from September of 2019 that certainly merits bringing back to the front – given that these past few weeks has got EVERYBODY (well… that is an exaggeration) – just polly-ticians – hawking the old ‘Reparations’ garbage.
Remember the words of Annie Lennox, “Everybody wants something for nuthin’…” So let’s see what Lance Spivey has to say about it. ~ Ed
Spivey: Slavery in the World
Reparations for Clowns?
I’ve been seeing a lot of internet posts and hearing a lot of talk about white people paying black people reparations for slavery, and how the “Rebel” flag is racist. First of all, I’ve never owned a slave, nor has any living relative of mine, nor has anyone I know or any member of their families. Second of all, you’ve never picked one single tuft of cotton, nor, probably, has any member of your family or anybody you know. So take those “reparations” and shove ‘em. Third, that flag stands for freedom, not racism nor slavery, and to treat it as such is to defame the characters of all the men who fought for Her, black and white alike.

9/11 has been scrubbed deliberately from our history. The front page picture of the twin towers ablaze was the first time that I have seen the terrorist attack images in years. Our children no longer know and understand our own history because the education ‘Elites’ have ensured that our children have become uninformed and easily manipulated adults.
As a New York native, and a former Army wife, I take great offense to this whopper of the day. “Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told reporters Thursday night that criticism of her and Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has become “an incitement of violence against progressive women of color.” (Source)
The tragic thing is that these people are Congresswomen. It is difficult to believe that they were actually elected by the American people. Too many men and women gave their lives for the sake of our freedom. Our country deserves better leadership. ~ Rosemary Stein, MD, Facebook, April 12, 2019
Despite all the propaganda that surrounds the conquest of Jerusalem, there were very few Muslim calls to jihad (only one is known, and it quickly fell on deaf ears). After all, in the preceding decades, and thanks to Sunni and Shia infighting, local Muslim populations were hardly unused to such invasions and bloodbaths.
In Muslim historian Ibn al-Athir’s words:
While the Franks – Allah damn them! – were conquering and settling in a part of the territories of Islam, the rulers and armies of Islam were fighting among themselves, causing discord and disunity among their people and weakening their power to combat the enemy.
In this context, the pure doctrine of jihad – warfare against infidels – was lost to the average Muslim, who watched and suffered as Muslim empires and sects collided. Continue reading →
I have been in a state of proverbial ‘funk’ for nearly a year now. You’ll remember last July when I had made the decision to shut down Federal Observer after seventeen years of publication – only to slowly change gears for God knows what reason. Over these past nine-plus months, the site – although looking much the same – has taken new directions – or in some cases readdressing old topics – which still drive me to this day. I’ll not draw you a map today – you may review the site on your own time and come to your own conclusion… and that is where I stand at this point – conclusions – or more specifically – the Conclusion of this once great nation. MAGA? Forget it – it will never happen. We near the end of the journey. Continue reading →
What In the World Has Happened To The America We Grew Up In?
Earlier today, my attention was directed to a thread on an Internet discussion forum that lamented how much America had changed over the years. I don’t know exactly why, but the posts on that thread really touched me. Those of us that are old enough to remember what America was like before the Internet grew up in a much simpler time. Yes, we didn’t have all of the luxuries that we take for granted in 2019, but we found joy in the simple things and people were generally much happier. Today, we seemingly have so much going for us, and yet people are lonelier, more disconnected and more depressed than ever before. The suicide rate in the United States is up 34 percent since the year 2000, approximately 40 million American adults have an anxiety disorder, and overdosing on drugs is now the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50. Clearly our society is not heading in the right direction. Continue reading →

Life sure isn’t going to get any easier for any of Us, not if the red, radical Democratic Party Communist rat bastards have their way about it, as they continue with their politically correct pushes, their internet controls, their postmodern relativism and their multiculturalism that attacks the truth of any issue on any given day, and all of this is done in the name of equality, freedom and social justice; in truth, it is a propagandists’ movement focused on ending freedom and liberty in Our Beloved America … the exact opposite of the things they purport to support. ~ JOS
America cannot allow lies to push truth to a dark death. Disturbing postmodern relativistic, postcolonial and social justice theories, tripe and nonsense that looks for victims under every rock has been advocated over the past four decades; and we must unequivocally reject this nonsense, in favor of the honest to God truth, since we already see destabilizing hyperreality, fallacy, propaganda, political correctness and outright Gestapo tactics used to erase our American heritage, our traditions, and our culture, in nothing less than a despicable attack on our freedom and liberty. Too many are too willing to use every deception and even any flagitious means to usher in the Democratic Party vision of an authoritarian Marxist Socialist state for America and eradicate our republic.

A 232 Year History of our fight against Islam & why it is no longer taught in our public schools…
When Thomas Jefferson saw there was no negotiating with Muslims, he formed what is now the Marines (sea going soldiers). These Marines were attached to U. S. Merchant vessels. When the Muslims attacked U.S. merchant vessels they were repulsed by armed soldiers, but there is more.
The Marines followed the Muslims back to their villages and killed every man, woman, and child in the village.
It didn’t take long for the Muslims to leave U.S. Merchant vessels alone.
English and French merchant vessels started running up our flag when entering the Mediterranean to secure safe travel. Continue reading →
In a discussion last evening with a reader of my work, a person who is obviously concerned with the direction in which our country is traveling said he was in basic agreement with my assessment of the problems we see in our country today but he took me to task for not offering viable solutions. I told him that I was in many cases reluctant to do so because I sense the great majority of people are unable to realistically look at solutions because they are hopefully addicted to the source of our problems and therefore will not consider the possibility of quitting “cold turkey.” Continue reading →
You don’t see much on the continued attack and removal of war memorials in the news, but that’s the intent of the left isn’t it? Do it quietly but totally. These monuments were dedicated by their loved ones not to the “cause” but rather to honor their loved ones who paid the ultimate price with their lives. The American Taliban seem to effortlessly pulled down and removed these sacred monuments, unopposed by those descendants that should have an understanding and love for these patriots long gone. One would think. Continue reading →
In a dramatic shift in policy, Facebook announced today that it is banning white nationalism and separatism on its platform. The decision, which was first reported by Motherboard, comes just under two weeks since a white supremacist killed 50 people in Christchurch, New Zealand.
In a blog post, Facebook said that any “praise, support, and representation of white nationalism and separatism” would be banned when the new policy goes into effect next week. “It’s clear that these concepts are deeply linked to organized hate groups and have no place on our services,” the blog read.

Hofstra University students have called for campus authorities to cart off a statue of Thomas Jefferson, saying the Founding Father was a slaveowner and therefore racist and therefore ought not be honored in the public sphere.
Guess the Declaration of Independence he wrote ought to go then, too — yes?

Mexican Cartels Using Grenade Launchers Close to Texas Border
No one should ever believe another Democrat. When they insist that there is “no crisis at the border” they are lying. They have ignored DHS Secretary Nielsen. They have dragged out liberal generals who’ve not once talked to the Border Patrol. Everybody’s got an opinion. Meanwhile just south of the Texas border, Mexican drug cartels are using grenade launchers to wreak havoc and kill their opposition..and it’s not the first time. Continue reading →
During Reconstruction, true citizenship finally seemed in reach for black Americans. Then their dreams were dismantled.

Not so long ago, the Civil War was taken to be this country’s central moral drama. Now we think that the aftermath—the confrontation not of blue and gray but of white and black, and the reimposition of apartheid through terror—is what has left the deepest mark on American history. Instead of arguing about whether the war could have turned out any other way, we argue about whether the postwar could have turned out any other way. Was there ever a fighting chance for full black citizenship, equality before the law, agrarian reform? Or did the combination of hostility and indifference among white Americans make the disaster inevitable? Continue reading →

Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats continue to refuse a request to allow a vote on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation that would stop infanticide and provide medical care and treatment for babies who survive abortions.
Today, House Democrats refused a vote on the bill for the 26th time — reading the same statement they have read the previous 25 occasions that claims there is no bipartisan agreement to bring the bill up for a vote. Despite the claim, Republican leaders have repeatedly asked Pelosi and top Democrats to reach an agreement for the bill to receive a vote. Continue reading →
An interesting hour on Facebook tonight. As always there are posts to smile about, cry about, get angry about, but of course – what bothers me is having put efforts into posting information that is submitted to educate and help people. No foul language – no smart-aleck comments – just superb, well researched information – in this case – related to issues which DO affect YOUR health and well-being, but then the new “rules” at Facebook – are against this kind of information.

Our southern border is being breached and overrun at will, and there is a hard, factual crisis unfolding there, despite a temporary decline in illegal aliens captured at the border between 2006 and 2014 due to an economic downturn. Even some of the most hardcore anti-American Democrats and former Obama officials are hard-pressed to deny that this crisis actually exists, although it seems there isn’t any number of illegal aliens swarming across the border that is large enough to move them to act proactively to secure the border and ensure U.S. sovereignty, national security and the individual economic and physical safety and security of all Americans.
