Is it twenty minutes to midnight in America?

by Suzanne Eovaldi,  staff writer

 That our republic is sinking like the Titanic with only twenty minutes left until midnight is the stark theme of an astonishing new book by citizen historian Joseph J. Breitfeller.  Drawing a trenchant comparison with the ineptitude of leadership that allowed the magnificent ship Titanic to sink after the bridge ignored five iceberg warnings; the author says America is fast heading to a similar fate.               

The Four Horsemen of America’s Apocalypse are the four progressive Democrat Presidents, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson, and now the worst, Barack Hussein Obama says Breitfeller whose book belongs in the stocking of every American patriot and conservative this Christmas! 

As the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic approaches on April 14, 2012, we need to give this book’s main premise careful consideration.  Just as a flawed captain was unable to lead, even to directing deployment of life boats dropped into the icy Atlantic only 1/2 full, our current captain is destroying America’s life boats of Constitutional Governance, States Rights, and Smaller Federalism, thereby pulling us into the vortex of a sinking republic. 

 The author has created a remarkable analogy of the Titanic’s tragedy with what Progressives have done with their sea of liberal policies and governance.   Only an 85% cut in the federal government (pg. 301) will bring us out of our sinking economy says Breitfeller who proposes cutting to the core Pentagon excesses such as the ski center in the Bavarian Alps and its over 200 golf courses, to closing the Departments of Education, Interior, Housing and Urban Development, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the NEA and NEH and the Farm Credit Administration. “Closed, Delegation withdrawn,” should be the fate of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, Breitfeller proscribes!   

A real step forward merits the closing of the Federal Reserve Banking System which is a big part of our problem because of its lack of audits, lack of transparency and its connection to the executive branch and financial markets.

Up to 95% cuts in many other government agencies plus the best entitlement reform plan I have read anywhere make this great new book a must read.  The author’s strongest condemnation of the four progressive steeds driving us into perdition belongs to Obama.  Breitfeller says the inexperienced trepan gamed the system and took advantage of a complicit press and a public unwilling to look deeper.  On page 234, he writes, “In every way, Obama is an imposter, especially for failing to listen to the collective will of the American people.”    Just as the Titanic’s pitiful Captain Edward J. Smith wakes up to ask: “What have we struck?”, we must wake up to save America NOW!

  1. Because of a typo, the comma in the second sentence of the first ppg incorrectly became a semi colon. The correct grammatical punctuation should read: "Drawing a trenchant comparison with the ineptitude of leadership that allowed the magnificent ship Titanic to sink after the bridge ignored five iceberg warnings, the author says America is fast heading to a similar fate." ever the English teacher, Suzanne Eovaldi

  2. Semicolon is correctly spelled as one word. Semicolons are used to indicate a mark of separation stronger than commas, but not as definitive as periods. I taught my students the semicolons should be used to separate two coordinating clauses, that is, clauses that can stand alone and contain their own subjects and verbs. In the above construction, we have a "complex", "compound" sentence structure here with the subject of the sentence happening at the end of the sentence. We have a dependent clausewith subject and verb understood and containing a "that." clause.It contains prepositional phrases and leans on another construction to complete its meaning. This sentence, therefore, may not be joined by a semicolon. Only two coordinating clauses should be joined with a semicolon accompanied with either one of four coordinating conjunctions, namely and, or, but, or nor, and not the incorrect semicolon as the typo placed. The subject of this sentence occurs at the end; it is "author";the verb of the sentence is "says." SE

    1. Wow ! An extremely timely and very cool punctuation lesson… I'm always questioning myself, as I write , whether to use a comma or a semi-colon. No Foolin' Suzanne!.
      I will try to remember your instructions "Teach" !
      Better yet, I will copy your advice, crop away the surrounding page so it is small enough to post near the computer !
      I try to use proper punctuation….I don't always succeed….but I have noticed the dearth of such important sentence structuring in my travels around various sites, and I have to say that I'm doing a better job of it than many. I find such articles or blogs to be very difficult to comprehend at times…
      Your articles are quite fine despite the rare lapses. Mine, on the other hand ? Okay and good by comparison !

  3. As a nation, America has rejected Jesus The Son of God & has
    embraced every evil under heaven. America is reaping as she
    has sown.

    Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20,21

    Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, shall he also reap. Galations 6:7

  4. America needs leaders who fear the Lord, believe in the original intent of the Constitution, and an electorate who will vote their faith. It will take the hand of Almighty God to keep America from becoming the once greatest nation on the face of the earth.

  5. Thanks, Joan for your kind words regarding a lost art, namely English grammar; I think we should go back to the sentence diagram lessons, the old spelling lists, the vocabulary drills. What a sad state our public schools are in with such poor levels of literacy and math abilities. cheers and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Suzanne
