A holdover title from the previous variation of the Federal Observer. This is where you will find a range of Editorial postings and comments by a select group of writers, many of who have had long term relations with Kettle Moraine Publications.

The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 (The McCarran-Walter Act)

NOTE: Although we do not agree with the direction that the United States Congress has taken in late 2018 going into 2019 as relates to Muslims “serving” in public office – which does not even include Political offices in various state and other Federal positions… there are many “stories” going around the nation which state that the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 prevented Muslims from holding Public Office. What follows below would seem to be a more reasonable assessment, yet what we are witnessing across the land – would appear to indicate a further erosion of this nation’s sovereignty. This does not change our mind… ~ Ed.

The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 upheld the national origins quota system established by the Immigration Act of 1924, reinforcing this controversial system of immigrant selection.

It also ended Asian exclusion from immigrating to the United States and introduced a system of preferences based on skill sets and family reunification. Situated in the early years of the Cold War, the debate over the revision of U.S. immigration law demonstrated a division between those interested in the relationship between immigration and foreign policy, and those linking immigration to concerns over national security.

I’m Tired Boss…

I’ll be 71 soon. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce, and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I’ve worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven’t called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired. Continue reading

Baldwin: An Open Letter To Our Legislators, Judges And Lawmen

The ‘Progressives’ (Leftists, Communists, whatever you wish to call them) are on the move. From everything to your RIGHT to Keep and Bear Arms, to the eradication of the Electoral College, to murdering LIVE babies and the eradication of our nation’s history… THEY are coming for YOU! ~ Ed.

The Death of Justice

I know I am speaking for tens of thousands of my fellow Montanans and tens of millions of my fellow Americans when I write what I’m about to write.

The “red flag” laws that are sweeping the country violate every principle of liberty upon which our country was founded. There is no due process associated with “red flag” laws. A judge’s order to seize the firearms from an American citizen who has not been accused of a crime, charged with a crime, convicted of a crime—or who never even threatened to commit a crime—based on the accusation of a single individual is anything but due process.

FDR: Sometimes a Great Notion

“There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.

In this world of ours in other lands, there are some people, who, in times past, have lived and fought for freedom, and seem to have grown too weary to carry on the fight. They have sold their heritage of freedom for the illusion of a living. They have yielded their democracy. I believe in my heart that only our success can stir their ancient hope. They begin to know that here in America we are waging a war against want and destitution and economic demoralization.

It is more than that; it is a war for the survival of democracy. We are fighting to save a great and precious form of government for ourselves and for the world.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt

Benson: The Outworking of the Theology of Political Correctness

Many think that the theory of political correctness, and the outworking of that theory, also known as cultural Marxism, is a godless theory, based solely on economic determinism the way classic Marxism is supposed to be. Nothing could be further from the truth.

In truth, political correctness contains a theology peopled by a whole host of would-be deities, all seeking to dethrone the God of Scripture so they can “ascend on high” and take His place, at which point they will fight among themselves over which of them is the most qualified to usurp His throne. They all have certain theological premises in common for all their differences. Continue reading

Common sense, courtesy, and the closed door

To the editor:

Virtually every home in America has walls and a door (or doors) which are most of the time closed and sometimes locked. Some homes also have fences and security systems and perhaps even walls to insure safety and protect property.

Welcome family members are able to come in to a home without knocking or ringing a bell. Sometimes they are told where a key is in case they come when the door is locked.

However, as a matter of courtesy, when non-family, whether friends or strangers, come to the door they knock or ring and wait till someone answers the door. Continue reading

Why Don’t You Just Let it Go?

I sit here tonight, feeling the driving compulsion to write, but about what, I have no clear idea. There is no title for this piece as of yet; the top of the page simply says “Title Pending.” All my energies as of late have been focused mainly on my pro-Confederate activism, and the fight to save Confederate Monuments, and I haven’t had a lot of time to write, although I’ve wanted to. Now I’m listening to music, mostly from my childhood and youth, waiting for the creative juices to begin to flow; for the words to just come. This is nothing new, but it’s the first time I have written about this part of the process before. I’m sitting here listening, thinking, feeling… My thoughts are, as most times these days, filled with thoughts of how to preserve my heritage and my country’s true history, and what can be done to return her to the kind of republic our Founding Fathers meant her to be. Brother Phelps is singing “… Somethin’ or someone is tellin’ you it’s over and done; outside the free wind blows, let go…” Strangely it brings to mind the people who ask, “Why don’t you just let it go?” Let it go?! You might as well ask us to “just quit breathing.” Let go of the truth? Let the Honor of our ancestors, Confederate AND Revolutionary, be sullied by “educational” indoctrination and misguided hatred? It ain’t about wanting to let go or hold on, it’s about not being able to “let it go.” I think we may have found our subject matter… Continue reading

Rise of the super Snowflakes!

Report shows Generation Z may be most liberal demographic yet

Generation Z – the cohort of post-Millennial youths ages 13-21 – are poised to be the most liberal generation in history, according to a new report.

Also on track to be the most well-educated generation, Generation Z is growing up in an era of dire climate change, gender-neutral pronouns and unprecedented racial diversity – factors that inform and shape their world view, according to a new survey of 11,602 Americans by Pew Research Center.

‘They’re overwhelmingly the most racially and ethnically diverse generation we’ve seen,’ said Kim Parker, Pew’s director of social trends research, in an interview with The Hill.

Generation Z is most in line with the beliefs of Millennials (ages 22-38), but their opinions diverge significantly from those held by Baby Boomers (ages 54-73) and even Generation X (ages 39-53). Continue reading

Here’s What an American Economic Collapse Could Actually Look Like

(And How It May Be a Lot Different Than Folks Expect)

When we think of “economic collapse” our imaginations usually lead us immediately to the desperation we’ve witnessed in places like Venezuela or Greece. We think of starvation, a complete lack of medical care, and waves of suicide by people who simply can’t survive. We imagine an apocalyptic societal breakdown that is immediately visible.

Here in America, I suspect the collapse is going to look a lot different than it has in these other countries…at least, at first. And in my description, it’s entirely likely you’ll see that many of these signs have been happening all around us for years. Continue reading

Kamala my house? – NOT!

Is Kamala Harris Eligible to be President?

NOTE: The following was written and published in August of 2018. Remember, ’twas Bosco who set forth the game plan. The war is heating up. ~ Ed.

Given that California Sen. Kamala Harris’s Wikipedia biography states that she was born in Oakland, CA in 1964 to immigrant parents and speculation exists that she plans to run for president in 2020, Golden State citizen Gary Wilmott has been seeking information as to her citizenship status and whether or not she meets the constitutional requirement of “natural born Citizen.” Continue reading

Smith ~ The Harsh Reality of Open Borders

America is currently witnessing the harsh reality of a Democratic Party intent on gaining power by any means necessary and so enraged by the election of President Trump, that they will not even acknowledge America and her patriots have a right to determine who and how many enter our nation, under any set of circumstances. The resulting stand off between President Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi and their respective supporters has allowed the harsh reality to come home, that the Democratic Party really has become the anti-American Party of Brown Ascendancy; and, the Democrats, such as Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer, place more value on their own power and their by and large white-hating communist, socialist, and fascist allies from South and Central America and North Africa and the Middle East, than they do on America’s own citizens.

C.S. Lewis Sounded the Alarm on the Dangers of Progressivism

While most of us associate C.S. Lewis with theological literature, the renowned author sounded the siren against progressivism’s clear dangers not only to the political rights and liberties of man, but also to our very perception of the reality of mankind…

C.S. Lewis: World-renowned author, philosopher, theologian. Christian apologist. Mere mention of his name fills our minds with images of faith-based allegory, of lions, witches, and wardrobes, of rational defenses of the Christian faith.

But political commentator and staunch opponent of progressive ideals?

That’s not what we think of when we think of C.S. Lewis. Continue reading

Good Job America: Our Founders Would Be Proud

Equal Parts Sarcasm and Truth…

Did you know that it wasn’t until about 50 years ago that Cannabis was officially criminalized when it was added to the list of substances the government could ban or regulate under the authority of the Controlled Substances Act; signed into law by Richard Nixon on October 27, 1970. This law was enacted when President Nixon decided to consolidate all the various federal laws regarding drug usage under one statute. Continue reading

The RNC is a Dead Elephant

Anyone remember the 2012 presidential election? Meh, you probably don’t. The attention span of most Americas is pretty short. Back in 2012, there was this Republican who was trying to save the Republican Party. Like most candidates, he had some pretty good ideas and some pretty bad ideas. Unfortunately, both the Republican Party and the conservative media (especially FOX News) threw him under the bus even though all the polls said he could clobber Obama during the RNC primaries. Instead, we got a wet noodle. Continue reading

Ewart: Malice in the Palace

The People’s Choice
Never have so “few” upset so many.
Divided, angry and frustrated are we.
Sadly, the “few” aren’t worth a halfpenny.
But still we bow down to them on bended knee.

Those “few” we call dysfunctional and corrupt politicians.
They keep throwing us curve, after curve, after curve.
But we elected them and gave them the ammunition.
So in the end, we the people ….. get what we deserve

Dysfunctional, corrupt, lust, greedy, racketeers, negligent, inefficient, slovenly, collusion and conspiracy are just a few words that describe the political and bureaucratic scene, not only in Washington DC, but in many capitols around the world. Continue reading

Statues are more than a Monument to a single man

As I carefully read and re-read what follows below – I sit in grief tonight – not just for who these images represent – but what they represent… and I mean far greater than the Southern region of this once great land – but in fact – the slow, sad death of the entire nation. I am not just speaking of the Confederate States of America – but the united States of America. Throughout history – no nation nor her people have always been in agreement, but I’ll not take the time to list any for you this day.

I warned though the pages of several of our blogs over the past few years – that the America we thought that we knew – is dead. We have let the enemies of BOTH of our peoples (North and South) enter through the back door and we are losing the war. Those who are destroying the history of the South and America – are not our countrymen. They are ignorant tools of the foreign invaders of which we were warned. The goal of the handlers is the complete annihilation of all that we once were. This has been their goal since 1776. Continue reading
