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.”

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…

Without Apology I am,

‘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.

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…

… and This Editor is still Pissed off!

Well… it has been some months since I have dipped into our early archives and posted…. but will ya’ just look at this! Now – don’t rag on me because some of the words or names are outdated – ‘Bush‘, ‘Anthrax‘ and a few more… but then you realize just how long we have been played… It is NEVER going to change my friends – for here we are – nearly twenty years later – and we keep falling for it all – and I fear that Sundown is nigh!~ Jeffrey Bennett, Editor

Editor of the Federal Observer is pissed off….

…and you should be too if you know what’s good for you!

October 16, 2001; 1:49 (EDT)I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore! That’s it! I’m finished – finished with all of the stupidity and apathy in this nation! Allright, we’ve been kicked – but we’re not down! But dammit, when is America and her sheople going to wake up to that fact? If this is war – then let’s start acting like it!

No, I don’t mean by running back to the movies and the ball games – although all of us need a break – I mean by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps (if you young punks even know what I’m talking about) and getting about the business of BEING Americans! Stop the whining and the sniveling – and stop being so damned self centered. The media has done this to you and you have lay down in the ‘Strawberry Fields’ for what seems like forever – that you can’t even get up because TV and the talking heads have ruled your lives for so long – that you have become brain-dead. Pull the life support for Heaven’s sake. Cut the umbilical cord to the damned government and stand up on your own two feet. Continue reading

Letter to this Editor…

It is interesting as to how many times these feelings come back to haunt me. January of eight years ago, again in 2018 – and again in 2021. Do things ever change. Will we survive? Will we WIN? ~ JB

January 24, 2013 ~ Early this morning, I received a note from one of my readers and listeners to my daily talk show. BE WARNED: Some of you will not like the coarseness of the language in my response, but then – that’s life. ~ J.B.


…you been sounding a little less than low lately. Today I left you one in the Federal Observer section of the YEmail, but I need to tell you that next time you need to take one of those fishing trips, I suggest you head for Eagle Nest and swing by the Vietnam Memorial at Angle Fire… Continue reading

I’ll let you all know…

NOTE: Be patient… I am working on it. It will be slow, but I just cannot walk away ’til the Good Lord decides that he has need for me elsewhere. Thank you to all of our readers who have sent emails and left comments below. ~ J.B.

As of this moment – on this day – I have had enough.

Am I giving up? I do not know at this point. I am fed up with it all. 26 years on the air – and for WHAT?

Nearly 20 years with this website – and for WHAT? Apparently – not one damned thing!

All posts are still in my possession – and may pop up again in a day or so – or maybe a bit longer. But I need a break from ALL of this.

I am leaving a few posts on this site for now, one written by my dear friend and mentor – Granny. READ her words – and answer the same questions for and about yourself.

Without Apology,


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

What you are about to read was written and published by yours truly in the first generation Federal Observer on the date posted below – nineteen years ahead of the curve. Ya’ can’t say that you weren’t warned! ~ J. Bennett, Publisher

January 1, 2002 – 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

An awakening…

~ Foreword ~
On November 11, 2020, I received the following note from a reader. It took me well over a month to respond – and I learned something tonight – about myself. Sometimes it takes an intelligent question – and the way it is put before one – before that ‘one’ reaches down deep into their soul – and the answers just flow… Thank you Natasha. ~ Ed.

Greetings Jeff

I was just reading your one world order column!

I understand this information and have for several years. Is there a remedy to awaken their souls that they are taking to stop this? I have done my due diligence in speaking with several agents of The United Nations, understand history and living souls rights and much more.

With C=cyber O=operations V=virtual ID=identification and the corona effect, 5g radiation, AI, satellites, facial recognition and so much more and the masses fully ignorant and not waking up nor do they want to hear it, what is the remedy?
