Smith: America Lives or Dies on the Moral Character of Her People

Don’t Let America Fade Into the Sunset!

America abandoned a pretty good system rather quickly with the onset of our first Civil,War, that led to a gradual dismantling of our federal system, under the idea of “liberal democracy”. But, the abandonment went to light-speed after 1913. and the rise of economic fascism, something that will be written about for years to come, assuming America doesn’t descend into those “thousand years of darkness” Reagan once spoke of regarding if America should ever lose Her way.

America is far and away from the Founders’ original vision for the country, and I fear that we may never return, not without a hard fought war and thousands more left dead and dying. So, the only question one need ask must be “What price are you willing to pay to live free?” Or, do we allow ourselves to be subjugated and so let the tyrants live? What life is it under any totalitarian or authoritarian government? It is no life worth living, least ways not as a broken subject; it is a life that any liberty-loving individual lives as a rebel, and “outlaw”. Continue reading

Price ~ The Future of the United States of America: Light after Darkness

Hugo Salinas Price

I have relied on no particular source of information in the process of forming an opinion regarding the causes and the promoters of the present disturbances in the US, and their objectives. I browse the Internet like anyone else. My opinion regarding events in the US is the result of my personality: my opinions are what they are, because I am the way I am.

I cannot regard events in the US as spontaneous expressions of anger and dissatisfaction regarding present social conditions. Disorderly events of this duration and magnitude cannot possibly be – in my opinion – spontaneous expressions of popular discontent. Continue reading

Baldwin: The Spirit Of Fear Has Conquered Our Country

Let’s be honest enough to face it: America is no longer the “home of the brave,” and as a result, we will soon no longer be “the land of the free.” In many respects, that description of America is already passé.

Of course, America is still home to a few truly brave folks. But these people are more and more in a smaller and smaller minority. Nothing proves this reality like what we are witnessing in regard to the coronavirus.

Anthony Fauci’s and Bill Gates’ bought-and-paid-for medical establishment, along with the completely controlled mainstream media and their political lackeys in both parties at every level of government (local, county, Continue reading

Ewart: You Caused It. You’re Guilty. Shut Up and Comply

“Guilt is cancer. Guilt will confine you, torture you and destroy you as a [human]. It’s a black wall. It’s a thief.” ~ Dave Grohl, contemporary American singer and songwriter

“Yep. You Caused It. You’re Guilty. Now shut up and comply!” No, you’re not guilty. Where are the American mavericks that will tell the judge, jury, or government to go to Hell?

Of all the emotions that control human behavior, guilt, fear and anger are the most destructive. Guilt can make us change our behavior for the good or bad. Fear can stop us in our tracks. Anger can make us act in an uncontrollable manner, where reason, logic and common sense are absent. Government has mastered the use of guilt, fear and subterfuge to manipulate and control the people.

I grow ever so weary…

Yes… I am weary – intensely weary – of all of the hatred, the ignorance and the destruction of this nation.

For those of you who have been long time readers of the Federal Observer – together we have gone though over 19 years of hell together – beginning some seven or eight weeks prior to the modern day of infamy – September 11, 2001.

On January 1, 2009 – the old Federal Observer was put to bed – which included well over 60,000 posts which had been submitted since our inception on July 22 of 2001. Happily – I still have the entire library of our first generation, but… no one really gives a damn any longer – and many who were with us from the beginning are no longer on the Earthly world.

The Insanity That WAS America

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I’ll say it clear
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain… ~ Paul Anka

The above is the first verse of the song made famous by Frank Sinatra, and I believe that it states clearly the path that we, as a nation have embarked upon… and its outcome will not be good. What is happening this day – at this time in our history – at this hour – is the most sickening thing I have witnessed in my seventy-odd years on this earth.  The war is ahead of us – and the ending will be much like that of the final Fall of Rome. Be blessed my friends, for we are on the final journey.

I’ll see you at Sundown,

Jeffrey Bennett, Editor

A Different Perspective!

What follows, was the first column ever published by the author, July 22, 2001.

This broadcaster is henceforth proceeding as if we are going to achieve the return of our birthright as Americans – FREEDOM. It is our belief that the global socialists’ benevolent veneer is cracking. The cracks are being caused by the shadow state and federal dupes who are losing their ability to deceive people into believing that the enslavement mechanisms of modern America are being implemented for their own good and, as a result, are having to use increasingly absurd and despotic means to keep us in ignorant obeyance.

Kettle Moraine is also proceeding as if we, as free, self-reliant and self-responsible Americans, are responsible for immunizing our minds and bodies from the silent wars that are being waged against our health and our sensibilities. I feel that the best possible service we can provide the American people is to give them the news, which proves that they are under attack mentally, physically, spiritually, politically and economically, and then provide them with the most self-empowering information available whereby we can protect and heal – immunize – ourselves, our friends and our families.

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.

Miles to go Before I Sleep

January 24, 2003 ~ I guess that I’ve felt this coming on for several months, continual headaches, accelerated heart rate after eating, multiple naps throughout the day, anger, frustration… you know the routine.

Did I have cancer, heart disease or just oldfartitus disease? I didn’t know, yet as with most men of my age bracket, I guess that I didn’t really want to know. By last Thursday night, I was so ill that I couldn’t sleep for more than 30 minutes at a time. My whole body was sore with muscular contractions, aching stomach and lower back pain – diarrhea was now becoming an hourly occurrence. Continue reading

We caught the B I G ones…

October 11, 2010 ~ 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 rejuvenation 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 be passed by Interstate 40 – putting the final death spike into Route 66 – except that it didn’t. With the addition of the Grand Canyon Railway in the late 1980’s – the Mother Road was born again. As some readers know, my family and I used to live on Route 66 – and we did get our kicks. And so have Bill and I.

Sunday afternoon, my family drove up to join us at the historic San Marcos Hotel in Williams, and on Monday morning, we heard “All aboard” as the Conductor invited us aboard for the 83 mile journey to the Grand Canyon. My family was scheduled to stay just for a few hours before returning to Phoenix, but Bill and I were to stay the night, and return on Tuesday afternoon. I will head for home, and Bill will be boarding another train for his journey back east to his home. Continue reading

19 Years and Counting ~ On Reflection

I’ll not take the time this day to dissect and discuss all of the nuances and stories about what happened September 11, 2001. I know where I was and what I was doing – as most people do.

There are many questions and much evidence out there to raise questions about the real story behind the tragedy… and THAT is my point – no matter how you address the issue – it was a tragedy. People lost their lives and maybe in some respects – we lost our country.

But THIS is how I choose to honor that day today…

I’ll see you at Sundown,

A, B, C, D, E, F, GEE…

…from out of the distant past!

Watch the FEDS TRY to stick it to me!

September 9, 2003 – This will be a quicky – as I don’t have the time for foreplay and romance.

The past 5 weeks have not been good. My stress-related virus has returned – hence the general lack of new material on the pages of The Federal Observer and the number of reruns on our daily radio program Perspectives on America.

Something Strange, This Way Comes
Friday morning, I received a series of emails from columnist, Lisa Guliani, one of which, had a simple request – that I remove an article from her archives, which she had not in fact written. Apparently she had forwarded the column to me several months ago and I thought that it was her work. She has recently taken a fair amount of heat on this piece (something she does well) and requested its removal. “No problem”, I said and promptly got on it – except that it wasn’t there. I immediately told her so – she went into her archives at the Observer and noticed the same thing – although, as she said, ”it was there an hour ago”. I believed her but there was nothing I could do so I moved on with my day. Continue reading

Robby Noel: End of an Era

noelSeptember 8, 2014 ~ 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

I have been away…

March 8, 2018 ~ 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…

Since the inception of Federal Observer in July of 2001, this world has changed – and not for the better. This nation has changed – not for the better. The people of the united States have changed – also – not for the better. What? You actually thought that Hillary not being allowed access to the Oval Office was cause for celebration? Well, yeah – in and of itself – it was – BUT we are living in even greater daily turmoil today that at any time that I can remember in my seven decades of life. Continue reading

Some People Did Something: September 11, 2001 ~ America Must Never Forget

Each year, as the anniversary of September 11th 2001 approaches, I become nauseated and angered all over again, as I recall the events of that morning, especially if the cable stations are replaying the many documentaries again. And as one listens and watches survivors giving their personal eyewitness testimonies from this horrendous day, it’s all too easy to see the pain etched across their faces, as they too relive those moments, wishing that they had each of those 599,616,000 seconds back, so they could tell a loved one, “I Love You”, just one more time …so that they could hold them in their arms just one more time.

Yes, if September 11th 2001 taught Americans anything, it taught us all just how truly fleeting life really is and that any of us can be snuffed from this life in a single terrible moment. It gave new meaning to the old Biblical teaching that no man has any guarantee of tomorrow, and at the same time, it awakened us, if only for a moment, to the actual existential threat Islam represents to all America and to civilization itself. Continue reading

Prelude To Martial Law

On the heels of government lockdowns of almost the entire country over the coronavirus, we are now witnessing nationwide riots over a Minneapolis policeman’s murder of George Floyd—and, predictably, Donald Trump is threatening to invoke the Insurrection Act and turn the U.S. military loose on the protesters and rioters. Continue reading

A Letter to Liberal America

September 6, 2009 ~ The following is adapted from a comment, which I posted early on the 5th of September, in response to several comments from readers, who spoke out against our stand against Chairman Obama’s indoctrination of the school children of America, scheduled for September 8, 2009. Comments were left on the column entitled, Chairman Obama to Speak to Students of America (K-12) (which is no longer available for viewing).

In addition, my wife and I received an email from a friend in Flagstaff, Arizona – a retired liberal teacher and die-hard Democrat. We are not sure whether her letter was submitted to the local bird-cage liner, which passes for a newspaper, or if it was submitted to someone with the Flagstaff Public School District, itself. Her letter follows this brief foreword. (Ed.) Continue reading
