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.
These are photos not shown to you by the media. These are from Kenosha shooting where 2 Black Lives Matters thugs were chasing this kid down the street… the kid fell and the BLM thugs started attacking him…. he shot and killed 2 Scumbags and wounded a 3rd. In my opinion BLM were the aggressors and were trying to injure the kid. The BLM Thugs got exactly what they deserved. ~ Marc Marshall
A lot is riding on the psychological terror meme of an out-of-control “novel” killer virus that is supposedly killing millions, perhaps tens of millions across the globe. All day, every day the media pumps out constant Covid hysteria and have managed to totally terrorize a large segment of society. They’ve done such a good job that many believe every personal encounter with another human could be potentially lethal! Continue reading →
It is so funny watching Republicans and Democrats fighting over the Postal Service. Their fight is over how to make the Postal Service finally work. Their differences revolve around how much tax money to hand over to the Postal Service to enable it to survive.
Neither Republicans nor Democrats get it. They will never make the Postal Service work. That’s because government enterprises don’t work. And the Postal Service, no matter how much you dress it up, is a government enterprise. Continue reading →
In 1988, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole called the recording studio at 3am and said he had to record a song right away. 15 minutes later, Israel arrived at the studio. The studio owner, Milan Bertosa said, “And in walks the largest human being I had seen in my life.” A security guard gave the 500 pounds man a large steel chair to sit on. Milan said, “Then I put up some microphones, do a quick sound check, roll tape, and the first thing he does is ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow.’ He played and sang, one take, and it was over.“
In a flash, it’s been blown away, revealing the barbarism beneath. The seeds of destruction were planted long ago.

Nine months ago, New York was a thriving, though poorly governed, metropolis. It was coasting on the more or less good governance of its prior two mayors and on its ancestral role as the global nexus of finance and capital.
The city is now something out of a postmodern apocalyptic movie, reeling from the effects of a neutron bomb. Ditto in varying degrees Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco — the anti-broken-windows metropolises of America. Walking in San Francisco today reminds me of visiting Old Cairo in 1973, although the latter lacked the needles and feces of the former. Continue reading →

It’s not speculation to suggest that some key people prosper and even benefit during an economic crisis, however it arrives, as small business owners struggle and large corporations and banks benefit from huge government subsidies, giving them the unfair advantage over the small business they eventually absorb as those businesses fail. The fake Covid crisis and the nationwide shutdown has placed over 50% of small businesses in America on a path of collapse, as the few elites have been given enormous economic power to shape policy that benefits them alone.
It’s not speculation that many of these so-called “elites”, i.e. Bill Gates, George Soros, and others, would appreciate having strict measures of control over the people and society on the whole, by suppressing their freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and freedom to travel, and many of these folks are already on board with China’s Social Credit Score and advocating something similar here in America, along with the total surveillance of American society, check points as seen in New York City and official certifications, i.e the Gates’ Covid Vaccine, to act as permits for activities that might give one freedom beyond the capitalist framework. ~ J.O.S.

A firefight between six US marshals and two boys and their dog began a movement founded on anti-government ideology. The internet age has spread its message wider. The following was originally published in 2017. I have chosen to provide three minor updates, which do not change the direction nor meaning of the author’s original intent. In addition, I have added an interview to this column, which I had conducted with Sara Weaver in July of 2003. ~ Ed.

Twenty-eight years ago today, in a remote corner of northern Idaho, the modern militia movement was born in a firefight. On the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia in August 2017, observers could see from the presence of well-armed men in fatigues that that movement was still with us. But back in 1992, they hadn’t yet formed. A firefight between six US marshals and two boys and a dog, changed all that. Continue reading →
Yesterday my wife, and I and my mom were escorted in by the sheriff to rescue some horses. What we saw will forever change my life and this is coming from the son of a life long firefighter. Growing up in the country, with a vast majority of my childhood friends living out there as well, I saw the community I grew up in burned to the ground. The places I helped move endless hay, rode dirt bikes and sat by bonfires on the tailgate of my truck. Some of my best memories… Continue reading →

Climate change may rank dead last in nearly every US opinion poll, and be the #1 priority for only 1% of American adults. But it is at the very top of the list for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, AOC and other Democrat Party leaders. Indeed, it is the primary justification for the Green New Deal that they plan to implement and impose, to control and transform the entire US energy and economic system … and much more. In fact, some of them plan to force us to spend some $100 trillion over the next decade on this great crusade.
In this article , David Wojick and I take a closer look at what they have in mind, and how it will affect virtually every aspect of our lives, livelihoods, living standards and liberties. As the DNC national convention wraps up, and the RNC convention gets underway, it’s a good time for every American to ponder this very carefully. ~ Paul Dreissen Continue reading →
The subject of apostasy in the Christian churches is one I have been interested in and concerned about over the years – mostly because there seems to have been so much of it even in my lifetime.
~ the abandonment or renunciation of a religious or political belief.
In his book Idols for Destruction Herbert Schlossberg has dealt with some of this and he has taken in back into Old Testament times. He quoted Malachi 2:8 “But you (priests) have turned aside from the way; you have caused many to stumble by your instruction; you have corrupted the covenant of Levi, says the LORD of hosts.” And he says, further down on the same page (233) that “Placed in the midst of a society sinking into desperate wickedness, the priests and teachers failed to sound the call to repentance and fell into the same low state as the community over which they were given charge. Thus the prophets were called to fulfill the role the religious establishment had spurned.” Continue reading →

The days grow darker with each passing minute, as we hear black nationalist anti-white racists screaming, “We’re coming for everything You took from Us”, as if they have ever really done an honest day’s work themselves or actually had anybody take anything from them. Nine times out of ten, these radicals are the criminals responsible for the massive crime sprees and looting we currently see all across the nation.
The elite billionaire oligarchs, such as Bill Gates and George Soros, and others of course, have the power and intent to rule the world, but they can’t so long as America still has some free-thinking leaders holding office in Congress and the Oval Office and our right to keep and bear arms is well defined, protected and defended by conservative Americans. They understand just how devastating any move against an armed citizenry in America would be to their planned New World Order, which is precisely the reason, we now see Democratic held states like Virginia moving so forcefully and tyrannically against the people’s rights to own firearms. And, as we are coming to see, the manufactured COVID event was also part of their plan that was staged to introduce societal controls and mechanisms by way of illegal mandates and suspect and fallacious “science” touted by their globalist ally, Dr Anthony Fauci. So, as the old economy is further decimated, they also are moving to eliminate all cash so every financial transaction can be monitored, taxed and controlled. Continue reading →
I used to be of the mind that the most peaceful method that a people have to deal with a tyrannical government is through a general strike… even though this is almost never a peaceful resolution. The tyrant demands pain and blood no matter how the people choose to revolt. Iceland is the only example I know of where the criminals were done away with somewhat peacefully…. I guess the bankers thought that Iceland has such a small population and presence on world affairs that no one would notice, so they gave in to the demands and left town. (I noticed).
At this point in time however, I think the best “high ground” course of action available is the vote.
A lot of people would stop reading or listening any further….. because they are convinced that voting doesn’t matter, and they can’t change anything…. but we’ve all witnessed recently how wrong that premise is. You need look no farther back in time than 2016 with the Brexit vote, and then the National elections here in the U.S. Continue reading →
Every four years, we are reminded that the president of the United States must be a “natural born citizen.” But what does this even mean? Does it apply to everyone born in America, and is there a difference between a “native born” (one naturalized at birth by statute) and a “natural born” (one who does not require any naturalization) citizen?
That’s the thing: It’s never really been decided who is and is not a natural born citizen of the United States. In fact, there’s not even universal agreement that anyone born within the borders of the United States is a natural born citizen. Unsurprisingly, there is an ideological divide in the United States between those who believe anyone born here is a citizen and those who disagree. (Continue to full article…)
Walter E. Williams:His devotees who destroy property also don’t care about people of color.
Most people who call themselves Marxists know very little of Karl Marx’s life and have never read his three-volume “Das Kapital.” Volume I was published in 1867, the only volume published before Marx’s death in 1883. Volumes II and III were later edited and published in his name by his friend and collaborator Friedrich Engels. Most people who call themselves Marxist have only read his 1848 pamphlet “The Communist Manifesto,” which was written with Engels.
Marx is a hero to many labor union leaders and civil rights organizations, including leftist groups like Black Lives Matter, Antifa and some Democratic Party leaders. It is easy to be a Marxist if you know little of his life. Marx’s predictions about capitalism and the “withering away of the state” turned out to be grossly wrong. What most people do not know is that Marx was a racist and an anti-Semite. (Continue to full column…)
I am writing to the younger generation. When you become an old-timer like me, anyone younger is of the younger generation. My focus is on the slightly more than half of the population of the U.S. who are younger than the age of 40, but this message is for those older as well. I write this because I, as a scientist, am very worried about what has become of the human species. In just a few short months, we have seen the species devolve into a panic-driven, irrational, hysterical species.
Much of this hysteria has been forced upon us by people who were elected to represent us, not dictate. Not all have gone this route but most have. They now seem to be only serving themselves. Theaters may be closed but we certainly get to see much grandstanding from these people on a constant basis. Their main message is that THEY will decide all risks for society.

In recent congressional testimony Dr. Anthony Fauci, the primary architect of the Trump administration’s COVID response, painted a bleak picture about the United States’s ability to contain the pandemic. According to Fauci’s narrative, the United States is experiencing a resurgence in regional COVID outbreaks because it failed to sufficiently lock down back in March, and failed to comply with the existing lockdown orders. Fauci specifically contrasted this situation to several European states that imposed lockdowns around the same time, claiming the latter as a successful model for COVID containment.
There are several immediate problems with Fauci’s arguments, including the fact that COVID cases are showing clear signs of a summer resurgence in the same European countries that allegedly tamed the virus through harsh lockdowns in the spring. The American news media however has seized on Fauci’s narrative, and used it to call for renewed lockdowns. The New York Times and the Washington Post both editorialized in favor of a second stricter wave of nationwide lockdowns lasting until October – this despite there being no clear evidence that lockdowns actually work at taming the virus.

Yesterday I commented to a dear sister in Christ that watching all the evil things going on all over the world but especially here in America is much like watching a movie you have already seen – you KNOW the ending, I compared that to the many prophecies in Scripture – how all the major events were repeats of what had taken place before – ‘nothing new under the sun’. Different names and faces but the ‘script’ is the same.
Look at the lawlessness going on across the country right now. Now think of the ‘lawlessness’ that was going on in Lots days (Sodom & Gomorrah) and how God told Lot to take his family and flee as He was going to send Fire & Brimstone to destroy that place. Continue reading →
