I’ve been gone too long…

Since the inception of Federal Observer in July of 2001, and what eventually became Kettle Moraine Precious Metals (NOW Sierra Madre Precious Metals) some years later – this world has changed – and not for the better. This nation has changed – not for the better. The people of the united States have changed – also – not for the better. What? You actually thought that Hillary not being allowed access to the Oval Office was cause for celebration? Well, yeah – in and of itself – it was – BUT we are living in even greater daily turmoil today that at any time that I can remember in my seven-plus decades of life. And hey – what about the Sniffy Scarecrow-In-Chief – the guy without a brain?

For those regular readers of the Kettle Moraine Publications family of web-sites/Blogs – whatever you wish to call them you’ll note that with two exceptions – Metropolis.Café and the Federal Observer – we have been away for several weeks. Have we been fishing? In a round-about way, I guess so – but not for my usual desirable ‘catch‘ – that is only for a past life. I’ll not bore you today with what I have been up to, other than to say it has also affected my daily broadcasts. I have been on extended hiatus there as well. For those of you who are regular listeners of our now 27 plus-year old broadcast – you’ll note that we have been running a series of historic broadcasts – some of which date back twenty years – I will return to the airwaves regularly soon, however consider the following…

What about our economy? It’s like riding ‘the Bobs‘ alongside of Two-Ton Baker at Riverview Park in Chicago  back in the day – it’s up, it’s down – but in the case of many Americans – it seems to be down-hill – all the way. Employment (while we are told is improving) doesn’t pay the way it used to. We are subsiding on 1969 wages in the 21st Century. Foreclosures and short sales on homes are still running at a feverish pace, while Veterans go without food and sleep in the streets of some of America’s biggest and most prosperous cities (shit holes) – all the while the government continues to dole out OUR tax money to refugees and illegal invaders, who sleep in our warm beds. …and HEY – what about that Covid stuff? Oh yeah – Joey’s handlers have been Dole-ing (no insult to the late Bob Dole) those bucks out left and right – to all comers – legal or not. Of course times have changed and housing prices have sky-rocketed – but few can afford the price.

Tens of thousands of people in America (and around the world) are dying due to over-medication of what are now being referred to as ‘OPIOIDS’. Greater numbers of deaths – more than at anytime in our history – are being attributed to lunatics going into schools and church’s and killing innocent people via gun-fire – and folks – understand – it ain’t the gun doing the damage. NOPE it is due to lack of parenting, lack of morals – but once again – and abundance to the fine wares being distributed by BIG Pharma. I say ROUNDUP (pun intended) the basturds (misspelling intended) and let them serve out their punishment here on Earth (Lord, where is Judge Roy Bean when we so desperately need his brand of swift justice?) – and then when they reach the end of the road – they’ll serve Eternal punishment as well.

Still others are dying at the hands of illegal invaders, which the gutless, spineless band of elected representatives of ‘WE the People‘ have elected to protect and serve us all. Hang them too, but alas – the People of America no longer have the balls to stand up and do their job. The polite word is, “recall”. The proper term is “hang ’em!

Of course the term, “hang ’em” could equally apply to the likes of Dr. Fauci, Joey (Biden – if you haven’t figured out the meaning yet) and the rest of the liars, cheaters and murderers with their demands for mandatory vaccinations to overcome the latest Plandemic – Covid-19. Maybe we should insure that THEY take the SHOT – through the barrel!

When the Federal Observer began seven weeks before 9/11 – there were few websites available of its type – and with our original stated mission. Since then – there are far too many Blogs and sites all sharing the same information, the same columns, etc. we are among the very few that do NOT bombard you with FLASH advertisements and on-going commercial endeavors, but then – I am just one man – but THEY are in it for the buck$. “Click HERE and donate” – it costs money to run this site!” No it doesn’t – not the kind of buck$ that THEY are raking in.

Are they committed to TRUTH, JUSTICE and the American Way – or the shekels which bind them?

Louis Turner, my former Associate Editor had major health problems, and at best only had the stamina to post dally with Sit-on-My-Face-Book commentaries. No longer did he have the ability to devote massive amounts of time to writing, editing, publishing and/or developing pointed graphic endeavors. I sadly miss his daily input – as he passed away suddenly sometime during 2020, however the Swine who he chose to Marry never bothered to tell me. (and somehow he beat the Beotch and came alive again – thank God)

So, we look back on twenty years of publication of one website (as of July 24, 2021), where we look at the history of (at one time) millions of readers per month, and ask ourselves, “What the hell has gone wrong? What in the hell have we accomplished, other than reaching and maybe changing the beliefs and direction of a scant few people along the way? Is all we have accomplished is to stave off the inevitable for a few years longer?”

Today, we look back on over 20 years of our Precious Metals websites, and watch a two year roller-coaster of precious metals sales all over the country. Some of the largest precious metals advertisers and firms in the nation have gone out of business – some due to poor management – others due to fraud and theft – of YOUR money. Sierra Madre Precious Metals is still here – but where are the buyers? Have they all gone broke? Moved their money into the erratic world of Karat-Bars and Itsy-Bitsy crypto coins? Is everyone looking for the quick buck? Have they all forgotten that the reason that they acquired gold and silver to begin with – was to save for the rainy day? Maybe that rainy day has come and gone for many… and for others – as of the Spring of 2021 – the cost has become too high. WAKE UP – the cost is going to continue to increase – no matter what “Spot” does, for the demand is HIGH – and the supply is quite LOW

US $2.50 Indian Gold

And yet – sometimes – you witness exactly what the game plan originally was. A father who was a big time client of mine going well back into the 1980’s, who shared his strategy with his son, who also became a long time client. “Dad” became ill with Alzheimer’s disease a couple of years back, and was living with Sonny Boy. The decision was made that the two of them had to relocate to a better climate – and they had the goods to liquidate. They moved somewhat North of their previous location and paid cash for  a new home. Dad passed some months later, but was a fairly calm and peaceful man. The son has begun to purchase once more. WHY? Because he knows that it’s going to rain once more – and he want to insure that he has an umbrella ready.

THAT is the reason that you own gold and silver. Not speculation as to how much is it going to be worth in a few years – but how much will it still purchase. The ONLY speculation that you want to make is ‘WHEN‘ will it all implode?

We continue to contemplate the fate of the Federal Observer. Most of my endeavors these days go toward the aforementioned, Metropolis Café and our oldest extant web-site, Dr. Kelley’s VICTORY Over Cancer. These are two areas where we continue to make a difference in people’s and family’s lives – and we are hearing of their respective successes. I do continue to hear from some of my older precious metals clients and their families.s

As I close this commentary, my prayers go out to Granny as she has finally been forced to give it up, as her health has deteriorated to the point that she can no longer sit at a computer and fight the daily battles.. Jackie Juntti has been a daily reader and frequent contributor to Kettle Moraine Publications for many, many years.

As Granny asked her readers for many years, “What the hell difference does it make anyway?” Frankly speaking I guess that the only difference it makes is, “Who’s side you are on in THIS life.”

I’ll see many of you at Sundown.

About admin

Please allow me to introduce myself; I am Jeffrey Bennett, President of Kettle Moraine, Ltd., the parent of Sierra Madre Precious Metals. I have been married for 52 years with two children and four grand-children, a veteran of Viet Nam, student of history (both American and film), and was host for fifteen years of Perspectives on America on the alternative airwaves, covering such subjects as, health and wellness, news, political satire, education and editorial commentary on current events through the teaching of history, and Protecting Your Wealth. In early 2018, I took a several month hiatus to complete some family business but returned to airwaves April 17, 2018). At the age of ten, I sat in a bank-vault in the Citizens Bank of Mukwanago, Wisconsin with my grandfather going through bags of old American Peace dollars, hand-selecting each coin as dated rolls of 20 coins were carefully put together and rolled. Learning of the history of these beautiful pieces of Americana, I asked my grand-father, "Why are we doing this?" to which he replied, "Because someday they are going to do the same thing with the silver in our money that, that (S.O.B.) Roosevelt did with gold in 1933." It took only six-years for his prediction to come to pass at the hands of a disciple of Roosevelt's... and what will a Federal Reserve 'dollar' purchase today - and what will that old 90% Silver Peace Dollar purchase? Although at the age of ten, there was little understanding of the meaning of it all, over the next half-century I became well-versed on the subject matter. During this summer of my education, I began to purchase silver coins as a collector and some small, international gold coins two years later - not an easy feat in the shadow of the Roosevelt confiscatory policies of 1933. Although those policies remained in effect until the mid-1970's, it was not until 1991 that I found that one could make a living providing precious metals and collectible, historic numismatic coins to a willing and concerned clientele. It was also during that year, that I began a relationship with one of the first Trust companies to give the public access to gold and silver as part of an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) - and Kettle Moraine, Ltd., founded in 1995, but have ceased providing service due the the intense change-over of the provider. In November 2011, after a 15 month broadcast on another network, I returned to the airwaves with my then revamped program, Life, Liberty & All That Jazz, and for over a quarter-century, I have been proud to serve the family of listeners of my numerous broadcast programs for physically-held precious metals for investors and collectors alike. On March 23, 2020 I launched my brand new - appropriately named program, The Edge of Darkness on the Republic Broadcasting Network, and thus continue to  remain available to our long time clients and their families. Ah yes - find out what "inter-generational" wealth provision has done for our clients over the past three decades. Don't buy the sizzle of that steak until you understand the cost! In other words, don't buy the bull being dispensed by the 'rare coin' pitchmen until you understand the full story. We, at Sierra Madre Precious Metals, will be proud to serve your needs.
