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 “Closed, Delegation withdrawn,” should be the fate of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, Breitfeller proscribes!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!
