OUT to Lunch…

NOTICE: Due to upcoming minor surgery on Wednesday of this week, this will likely be our last post for the week. Stick around – we will be back next Monday.

OH – you really think that things are going to change for the better while I am gone? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! See ya soon.~ J. Bennett

NOTICE… SCREW Google…

Our 22 year old email address, jeff@federalobserver.com has been suspended by the Scumbags at Google – which apparently has changed their entire policy – because they want me to now PAY for the right to use their new system – a system that is now fully based on scamming folks out of money!

21 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 Difficult Day…

As some of you are aware, today has been a difficult day for my family and I, as we lost our son, our brother, uncle and a father one year ago today.

I thank my friend Gwyn Ruddy for sharing this with us. ~ Editor

“Today was a Difficult Day,” said Pooh.

There was a pause.

“Do you want to talk about it?” asked Piglet.

“No,” said Pooh after a bit. “No, I don’t think I do.”

“That’s okay,” said Piglet, and he came and sat beside his friend.

“What are you doing?” asked Pooh.

“Nothing, really,” said Piglet. “Only, I know what Difficult Days are like. I quite often don’t feel like talking about it on my Difficult Days either.

“But goodness,” continued Piglet, “Difficult Days are so much easier when you know you’ve got someone there for you. And I’ll always be here for you, Pooh.”

And as Pooh sat there, working through in his head his Difficult Day, while the solid, reliable Piglet sat next to him quietly, swinging his little legs… he thought that his best friend had never been more right.”

People get ready…

…there’s a CHANGE a’ comin’ Don’t need no baggage – ya’ just get on board – and it is FINALLY happenin’!

For the past year and a half, Kettle Moraine Ltd. has been suffering under the worst web-site and Domain hosts, but I won’t even mention their name. Just over this past month we have been fighting these people who only seem to have representatives in Formosa – or some other foreign land. Oh sure – once in a great while i could reach someone who was helpful – but the rest of them were worthless idiots. All of this began to change on August 16 when 3 of our websites were shall we say – “brought back Home”. At this point – Le Metropolis Café is the most complete and we are so happy.

The Federal Observer seems to have cleared up it’s issues and is working just fine. Sierra Madre Precious Metals also seems to be in good shape at present, but we are watching closely. We do ask you to be patient with Dr Kelley’s VICTORY OVER CANCER, as our soon to be former host is delaying the complete transfer for reasons unknown – especially due to the fact that we made it quite clear that we expected to be transferred FIRST.

As for Le Metropolis Café Well – it’s time to get it on – and GET YOUR KIDS OUT OF THE PUBLIC FOOL System – and hey – if you have any questions to ask or have comments to share with us – we FINALLY have a brand new updated email at Metropolis.Café – and we invite you to contact us at your leisure. You can email us at: Edu@Metropolis.Café

Bennett: The Death of Privacy and a letter of promise

What I am doing this night is a total rarity – in fact – I have never done it before.

On my evening broadcast of July 21, 2022 – I did what I am known for, shared one of the most well researched commentaries from a well-known writer who I have never met nor spoken with – but his commentary was so spot-on – that I chose to make it the base for my program this night – but it was not to be the end of my program.

As you will hear, I received a letter nearly two weeks ago from a listener, but as I began to read it, I was taken aback and chose to put it back in the envelope – until two nights ago and read this two-page letter in it’s entirety – and it hit me hard – but not for some of the things that were said, which could have been taken the wrong way – but for the letter in it’s completeness – and then I decided to share said letter with my audience with some closing remarks.

Please LISTEN to the complete program, and lessons shall be learned – and then SHARE this link for this column with family, friends and all who will listen and read. (CLICK ON the title)

The Death of Privacy and a letter of promise…

‘Ever been stung by a dead bee?’

Originally published, June 17, 2015

Eddie: “I have no memory of ever being bit by any kind of bee.”

Slim: [interjecting] “Were you?”

Over the past year as I have completed a nearly eleven month long project of home restoration, I began to note something I had never witnessed before – not to the degree I have seen now – dead bees laying on the ground. Sometimes there is just one, sometimes several – and even on one occasion – several dozen. Continue reading

Bennett: Tired of the Jive!

~ Foreword ~
My Sunday morning has been busy putting the following together. It has also been a superb follow up to my broadcast from this past Wednesday night. Didn’t hear it? Here you go! (Primum Non-Nocere – First, Do No Harm, April 20, 2022)

And the story will continue… ~ Ed.

Having had the “services” of Dr. Edward Evans, M.D. on the night of September 2 or early September 3, 2021 due to what I would refer to as a minor heart attack – and then two subsequent scheduled appointments at his office – the attached bill is an insult – for several reasons.

To the best of my knowledge, Dr. Evans could not be bothered to do a follow up in my hospital room during the next several days – and yet Banner Estrella Medical Center recommends that I make contact and make an appointment within the following seven days or so?

Before the heart surgery (where two stints were put in me) Dr. Evans also had a catheter installed in me – for alleged reasons that I had urinary issues. (Continue…)

Sex, Drugs, Guns and Rock and Roll

May 13, 2002 – A leftover saying from the ‘60’s – got your attention, didn’t I?

The Federal Observer Editor wastes 26 years of his life on the air.

Unfortunately, they’re not the only things left-over from the decade of peace & love. During that decade we saw the birth of ”free love”, forgetting that with everything – there is a price to pay. The nation has become steeped in moral decay – as the epidemic of AIDS has spread world-wide. Some say that it was a virus developed in the U.S., others say that it was caused by monkeys and still others who believe that it was caused by the rampant spread of deviant sexual behavior. Does it really matter at this point what the cause?

As a nation, We the People of the United States of America never seem to heed the lessons of history. Sodom and Gomorra set the stage so long ago – and yet today – anything seems to go in America – and we, as a society have turned to stone. Our schools have become proving grounds for alternative sex-education classes. Our children are being taught to accept anything, which is considered outside the norm. Homosexuality is now openly being taught in the government run ‘fool’ system – sanctioned and promoted by administrations who got their education during that same tumultuous decade – all the while parents sit at home and do nothing. I guess that their parents had taken too many drugs, thereby transferring the dead brain-cells to their children. Continue reading

Life is not always so wonderful after all…

These past few days have been trying and very difficult – our readers are not being ignored. It will be awhile before we have the ability to begin posting again – at a very slow pace.

On Thursday morning I did not fall asleep until a short-bit after 3:00 a.m. only to be awoken at 4:25 by my wife to inform me that our Son had passed away. My Son Mark would have been 38 in two weeks. Having spent the weekend emptying out the home he lived in – it became more difficult for me by the hour as too many great memories came flooding back – but it still has not hit me that way it shall… Continue reading

A conversation…

Where else but on Facebook?

If you don’t want to wear a mask don’t. If you don’t to be vaccinated don’t get vaccinated and if you die because of Covid then you have no one to blame but yourself. I want this virus gone but if we you don’t listen to the science then we deserve to die! ~ Susie S.

Sheep! ~ Barry A.

Just because i want to live, I’m a sheep and your an a’hole, President Trump got vaccinated so he is a sheep as well? ~ Susie S.

Our Modern Era Village of the DAMNED!

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

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

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.

Some of us are in this together…

Early in June of this year, I received a link to an article from an old and very dear friend. Not only did I choose to publish the column – with her forward and introduction, but I chose to concentrate my daily program, The Edge of Darkness to that which she had submitted.

I sent her an email thanking her profusely for all that she has continued to do, and some days later received the following… Continue reading

So I met this azz hole…

NOTE: The following (bit of satire) was written by me and published on the first generation Federal Observer somewhere in late September of 2002. Oh, why the hell not? ~ JB

Old Weatherbys & 80 year old Winchesters – the stories, which make grown men cry.

September 28, 2002 – When my family and I relocated from the mountains of Arizona to the Valley of the Scum Sun 12 years ago – we only had one requirement of our house – it had to have a swimming pool. Living in the Arizona desert can have its rewards – even while roasting yourazz in 120 degree brain or egg scrambling temperatures.

This is just once such story.

I’m down at Cheekie’s Café one Friday for breakfast (my favorite cholesterol hole) chewin’ the fat (no pun intended) with Charlie and Deb, when this guy walks in. It seems that this is his favorite place to eat on Friday’s as well (well, favorite may be stretching it a little). He grabs a copy of the Arizona Repugnant on his way to the booth, sits his azz down on one of the virgin vinyl benches, rifles through the paper (which serves as a bird cage liner in our house) and heads right for section D (for dummies) the Sports Section! Then the waitress approaches him…. Continue reading

Me and Facebook…

I chose to post the following on Facebook today (suspecting only too well what would happen). And so Ii did – and BANG! – they rejected it and of course made acknowledge that I was supporting (their) enemy… and all of that good happy ca-ca.

It was a test. it was only a test – and I was correct – BUT – maybe I will be allowed back on tomorrow – maybe not. We shall see…
