Category Archives: Out of The Past ~ The Archive Edition

As time allows, we continue to review many previously posted columns and articles from the first generation of several of the family of Kettle Moraine Publications, drawing from in excess of 90,000 published articles – yet many could have been written today. Others were a forewarning of (as H.G. Wells once wrote) “Things to Come.” So today we return to the days of yesteryear, or is it, Back to the Future? C’mon Marty – tell me which it is – or will we even have a future?

Our Modern Era Village of the DAMNED!

In the words of Sam Cooke, ‘a change is gonna come!

July 12, 2021 ~ Something is terribly wrong with the Education ‘Village‘ of America – the complete breakdown of America’s government controlled education system through indoctrination and Socialism. Our children have become truly ‘damned‘ and will have little chance to truly succeed in this nation – UNLESS – the system can be overturned.

This commentary was so-named because of then First Lady, Hillary Clinton’s comment, “It takes a village to raise a child.” In addition to my feelings that our children are truly ‘damned‘ as long as this system is allowed to continue.

The ‘Village‘ is the place that I would not wish to be in today. I was privileged to participate in one of the last non-socialist school systems. Hell – I also know that the conversion had already begun, but I had great teachers. At 73 years of age – I can still picture and name over 90% of those whose care I was placed into. Continue reading

Sixty years on from ‘I Have A Dream‘…

… the unifying vision of Martin Luther King has been betrayed by BLM and their fellow Leftist Zealots

During one of the most famous and admired orations of all time, Dr Martin Luther King spoke of ‘the fierce urgency of now‘ that compelled him to call for social justice.

Re-reading his whole ‘I Have a Dream‘ speech, delivered at Washington DC’s Lincoln Memorial 60 years ago this month, it still shimmers with beauty and brilliance.

The ‘urgency’ King invoked in his plea to right the racial wrongs of America’s past did, indeed, lead to some rapid results.

The dream he laid out, that his ‘four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character‘ was followed quickly by the great legislative accomplishments of the civil rights movement.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlawed discrimination on the basis of race, colour, religion, sex or national origin. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 outlawed the discriminatory practices adopted by many southern states after the Civil War.

But it wasn’t just desegregation and voting rights that King demanded on August 28, 1963. Continue reading

Granny: The TIES that BIND America

The following is a timely reach-back to our archives of November 7, 2009 as was originally published on the Federal Observer. We do not know which category it was published in at that time – but it really does not matter. “Granny” (Jackie Juntti) has been a daily reader and frequent contributor to the family of Kettle Moraine Publications almost since our inception two decades ago, in addition to becoming a very close friend and confidant.

Over the past several years, Granny has been dealing with on and off health issues which have finally caught up with her. Some weeks go I was informed that she was being forced to “retire” from her life on-line, as the hours daily being spent in a chair working on computer, studying, reading and writing has finally taken it’s toll on her physical condition. As she closed her email she reminded all of us exactly WHY we are here – and what lies ahead when our job is finished…

Ain’t gonna need this house no longer
Ain’t gonna need this house no more
Ain’t got time to fix the shingles
Ain’t got time to fix the floor
Ain’t got time to oil the hinges
Nor to mend the window pane
Ain’t gonna need this house no longer
I’m getting ready to meet the saints

And so we once again share the words of this Godly woman – with her warnings for our future if we do not heed the warnings, ACT now – and Prepare for the final Journey.

Miles to go Before I Sleep

The following is a column that I wrote over twenty years ago, and although much has changed in those years – much has remained the same. There are times that I find it worthwhile to bring this column back to the front once more.  Can ya’ dig it? ~ Editor

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

Dwyer: On the 100TH Anniversary of Bolshevik Revolution in Russia

Is it Going to Repeat Itself in the U.S.?

The following was written by Mark Andrew Dwyer and published on the Federal Observer on September 10, 2017. ~ Editor

Many political dysfunctionalities, anomalies, and pathologies that have been proliferating across the West for a few decades now are the results of a metastasis of the Soviet Bolshevism that had been carried on with mass emigration of the so-called “intelligentsia” from Russia, former Soviet Union, and its satellites. Some of the emigrants went straight to the U.S. while others settled and procreated elsewhere, with many of their progeny finding their way, legally or otherwise, to America. A brief analysis of the political trends and structure of the Soviet Union reveals certain disturbingly close similarities between them and some of their counterparts in the U.S. and the European Union. These similarities and the presence of the striving “intelligentsia” of the Russian-Soviet extraction in the U.S. move our country closer to a point where the necessary conditions for the neo-Bolshevik revolution are met. The above described process seem to follow directions how to impose socialism that were given to the Soviets by the Frankfurt School’s Institute for Social Research in the 1920s. Continue reading

Bennett: Rebuttal From a Pissed Off American

The following was written and published by me on January 1, 2002 in the Original Federal Observer, which was just over five months old. ~ Editor

For many of us broadcasting on the alternative media – we have remained hard hitting on issues, which we believe are highly pertinent in our day and time. These issues include education, property rights, tyranny by government, government out of the control of the people, moral decay and rot, tax and sovereignty issues, a deeper drift into Socialism, the breakup of the family, protection of children and families, treason in high places of our government, cover-ups and conspiracies within the government itself, in addition to a sundry of other choice subjects.

Predictably, many of us have been accused of being anti-government. In response to those accusations, I must say: To the best of our ability, we are reporting the truth. Are the people making these claims against us listening to us, and to our programs on a regular basis? Do they take a serious look at what we are reporting and is the information confirmable from other sources? Continue reading

The Seese Chronicles: Beware of High Hopes

…and the illusion of “vox populus”

The illusionists are masters of deception, and deception rules the age in which this world spins. Post-election euphoria has not yet pulled one American soldier out of the Middle East, nor can it remove from power those who really control the opinions of the public, American, European, Middle and Far Eastern, the people we call the “shadow government” comprised of the industrial billionaires and world bankers.

1376 ~ “Hello suckers…” and Happy New Year!

It’s More Than Opinion! – Rebuttal from an Angry Patriot

The calendar has officially rolled over to another year. Who knows what evil lurks in the minds of man? During 2001, the world found out, just how evil man could be. Was it a result of American foreign policy and our involvement in the Middle East? Or was it the diabolical plan of a crazed “religious” fanatic and zealot? Only history will bear out the truth for the World to see.

For many of us broadcasting on the alternative media – we have remained hard hitting on issues, which we believe are highly pertinent in our day and time. These issues include education, property rights, tyranny by government, government out of the control of the people, moral decay and rot, tax and sovereignty issues, a deeper drift into Socialism, the breakup of the family, protection of children and families, treason in high places of our government, cover-ups and conspiracies within the government itself, in addition to a sundry of other choice subjects.

The Seese Chronicles: Disorder from the TOP or “rotting from the head

January 29, 2005 ~ The reports are seemingly endless, a long laundry list of defects in our obese government structure of subversives, panderers, crooks, delusional leaders and biased media cohorts, inadequate training in the military and incomprehensible lack of coordination and supply for a war that should never have been, and stupid trips by even more stupid elected officials to places they should not be allowed, all at taxpayer expense.

And to think the American Revolution was ignited over a tea tax!

Of course, Boston Harbor couldn’t hold the carcasses of the huge number of lunatic elected and appointed officials in American government, they outnumber the tea by about 2,000 official persons to 1 case of tea. (Don’t hold me to an exact figure, we haven’t had an official investigation at this point.) But it’s obvious that America has a bad case of Rottenhead Infestation, and RI seems to grow every time the government reorganizes anything or holds a new election. This government has pandered to its enemies and kicked its allies, bought its lovers and given its defense information to those who have every intention of using it against the American people for a long, long time.

This is the end…

It’s an INVASION and We’ve LOST the Country!

June 22, 2013, November 20, 2022 ~ What you are about to read, is a compilation of several short columns I wrote and published on the now defunct No Stinking Amnesty website. It is now officially gone, kaput, finis – just as this nation is doing – dying before our very eyes. (Ed.)

In the words of Jim Morrison of The Doors

My daughter called me in tears, late at night on November 6, 2012 – the night of the re-coronation of the Usurper. She could not understand why the people in this (once great) nation would lend themselves to the travesty perpetrated on America, such as was done on November 6, 2012. Continue reading

The Seese Chronicles: When My Country Fell to the Liberals

The Public Never Knew What Happened!

Mr. Smith… from another time!

June 4, 2006 – There is so much rampant relativism in America today that only the few who care about the future of this nation and the heritage that made it a once great nation understand that the liberty of which we are so zealous is as fictitious as Santa Claus, perhaps more so.

As a nation filled with IRS-beholden churches whose preachers cannot involve themselves in the political morality of the day, or the ethics dictated by the Christian faith, or even the public displays of the symbols of our faith lest some be offended and take matters to court, we are filled with churchians who agree with whatever our government says about God, even to whether He exists. We should be a nation of fiery pulpits rather than teachers who tickle ears for the sake of building membership numbers and bowing to the dictates of the tolerance and diversity peddlers whose influence is manifest everywhere. Sadly, we are not a nation of fiery pulpits but of merchandisers of a feel-good religion with bigger buildings and smaller messages of little to no import, and barely a word of true Gospel.

Juntti: GOALS ~ What are yours? Do you have any?

November 27, 2011 ~ As I sat watching the news which was filled pretty much with coverage of the madness that they call Black Friday shopping I had a lot of thoughts cross my mind. First of all it was what a bunch of morons – how many of them have a job to have the money to spend on this junk they are camping out and standing in line to get. How many will just CHARGE IT? (Following the example set forth by government – CHARGE IT – go into DEBT. Debt is the Devils Chain of slavery around your neck.)

That got me to thinking about GOALS and how each person has some kind of GOALS in their life. My question is WHAT IS YOUR GOAL. There are many GOALS out there, some are long term, some are mid term and some are short term……. some are simply IMPULSE.  Continue reading

The Seese Chronicles: AMERICA’S GRAND FINALE ~ Under the Imperial Roman Eagle

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.

There is no doubt that the rise and fall of the United States of America bears a close resemblance to the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, from its days as a representative republic to the final collapse in its own debauchery, too weak to fight even if inclined so to do. The imperial eagle is the emblem used by both Rome and the United States, a bird of freedom and power, but also a bird of prey. How fitting. Continue reading

The Seese Chronicles: The Revolution? It’s Over ~ The Rest is Just Enforcement

The cultural revolution is over. Without a shot being fired other than by government agents, America was changed, transformed, from a land of liberty to a nation of multicultural tolerance dolts with liberal educations and preemptive mindsets. There is still a bit of mop up work to do to clear out some radical free-thinkers (mostly pesky Christians and diehards of the Confederacy and its battle flag) but they will be eradicated within a decade. One way or another.

American heritage has been demeaned, despised and desecrated. It has also been revised by revisionists who have graduated from universities that inculcate principles of the cultural revolutionaries. The South was uniquely regional in its character, belief system, social behavior and pride. A new “reconstruction” is mopping up where new, lesser and quieter “Shermans” have come and taken over its cities, media, schools and political arenas. Continue reading

STEELE: Modern Sense

The following is a lengthy but worthy read. It was submitted to the first edition Federal Observer by a good friend and contributing writer and Patriot – the late Edgar J. Steele. He is sadly missed. May he be resting in peace in a better place that we are living this day, for all that he wrote of has or is coming to pass… and few would listen. ~ Jeffrey Bennett, Editor

With no apologies to Thomas Paine

“Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best state is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer.”Thomas Paine, Common Sense (February 1776)

Edgar J. Steele – American Patriot

~ Preface ~
There are a remarkable number of parallels between pre-revolutionary America and the America of today. It is downright spooky how, in their writings of that time, our founding fathers might have been speaking directly to this generation of Americans. Then again, I do not believe in coincidence so perhaps, in a sense, they were.

How appropriate that those of us who advocate a return to the ideals of those days are called “patriots,” a word which has taken on as derisive a meaning when mouthed by government agents today as those uttered about our forebears by King George’s men during the first American revolution.

Nor is it coincidence that those of us labeled as “patriots” wear the mark with respect and honor. I count myself proudly among their number and pray only that my work be worthy of inclusion. Continue reading

Longstreet: Madam Speaker Unmasks the Ugly Face of Socialism

A lesson from the past that WE have not learned from. You are sadly missed J.D. ~ Ed.

August 23, 2010 ~ Back in the 1950’s, while still a lad in high School, I delivered a speech at the University of South Carolina. I don’t remember a great deal of what I said in that particular speech, but I remember I called notice to the dangers of socialism and communism — and the danger of an all powerful government they both demand.

I remember, too, that I mentioned how socialist governments, such as the one in the socialist Soviet Union used the power of the government to keep their citizens in check, in line, if you will. I mentioned how the secret police of the Soviet Union would come knocking at the doors of their citizen’s homes at the “dead hour” (3 AM), smash it in and drag the would be dissident off to the Lubyanka Prison – and if he/she lived through the interrogation, would, quite likely, wind up in a gulag prison somewhere in the frigid climes of Siberia, there to work for the state while valiantly trying to remain alive.

Juntti: Are we “Federal Children“?

Fall 2002 ~ While doing some searching on how we are TRACKED by the government (cell phones, etc.) I came across this item I wrote in 2002 that provides more info on how the government goal of TRACKING and controlling American citizens really got started. I had forgotten I had written this but in finding it today and reading it over I thought some on WGEN might like to review the history of how the *massa’s* devised ways to track us and how to use us as collateral for that national debt – mostly owed to China. When China calls in the debt we owe to them how many of us will then be placed in Chinese custody to do their bidding? ~ Jackie Juntti (Granny)

Are we “Federal Children,” owned by the Government?

Facing the Hardest Truth on Public Education

John Dewey

April 3, 2013 ~ There are several major obstacles to overcome if there is to be any hope of saving civilization from the grip of the authoritarian pre-education camps we call “public schools.” The most stubborn obstacle of all, however, is perhaps the one embedded in our own hearts, namely the all too human instinct to comfort ourselves with the thought that the soul-deforming corruptions of public education began in earnest only after our own school days, and hence that we ourselves escaped the harm we so easily recognize in others.

This instinct forms the rationale for the many objections I get to my calls for the complete abolition of public schooling, from people who claim that if the schools just got back to the methods of the good old days, all would be well. In other words, these people are unwilling to see the problem as anything deeper than the superimposition of some bad textbooks or teaching methods on an essentially noble system, because to admit that the problem is more fundamental than this is to admit that one’s own education was harmful, which is to concede that one was indeed harmed — that you are less than you might have been.

Benson: Kindergarten’s Socialist Origins

Horace Mann

November 25, 2011 ~ Most schools today, both public and private have kindergartens. They have become an accepted part of educational life in this country and others as well.

This was not always so. When I first attended public school, way back in the mid-1940s, there was no kindergarten where I went. Although some schools undoubtedly had them, all schools did not. They had not become totally entrenched, although their promoters had been working on that project with much zeal. Their efforts seem to have paid off. Kindergarten is now as much a part of school life as the seventh grade.

I have, in the past, written articles and even a couple booklets, dealing with the origins of public, or government, schools in this country. These “institutions of learning” have a history that is never quite openly discussed in all of its ramifications. We often see the names of founders and promoters of public education mentioned in articles or essays, but we are seldom told all that much about these people and what they really believed. Most educators don’t want us to go there. Continue reading


January 30, 2006 ~ I have a copy of the Tennessee Constitution and The Constitution of our Country. Nowhere – NOWHERE – do I see any mention of *Lobbyists*.

I did find this:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
