Moody´s: US finances set to
´deteriorate,´ risking credit rating

Washington Examiner, by Joseph Lawler

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/9/2018 12:36:54 PM

U.S. government finances are going to "deteriorate" in the years ahead, Moody´s Investors Service said Friday, which will eventually put the country´s triple-A rating at risk. The credit rating agency noted in an in-depth report on the government´s fiscal situation that its balance sheet will "continue to weaken over the coming decade and become a source of downward pressure on the credit profile." Moody´s specifically cited the tax cut signed into law by President Trump in January, which is estimated to add around $1 trillion to deficits over the next decade. Trump also a budget bill Friday meant to allow Congress to

Comments:
This really frightens me. Where are all those fiscally responsible Republicans? What those politicians in DC are doing is horrific. They are so reckless and irresponsible. Will this further cause the stock market to tank? This is unsettling to say the least.

Or maybe all that new tax revenue from income and business growth, plus fewer people on the dole (welfare,food stamps) will IMPROVE our credit rating.

Wow, who knew that after $9 trillion incinerated by Obama, a $1 trillion return of taxes to the people who earned the money, resulting in prosperity and even greater tax collections (Laffer Curve) would destroy the nation´s finances? Goes to show ya!

Expansion of the economy and growth of business and wages will provide increasing government revenues. Trouble is, they can´t put a number on it, so they assume the worst.

I guess if things go to Hell in a hand basket, we will have to cut foreign aid even more and get more mooches off the welfare program. Maybe even reduce the size of government a lot more!

"The Triduodecahedron says, US finances to (wait for it!) remain stronger than ever for the next three years and - Donald Trump is to be reelected in a landslide of historical proportions."

Whoa! What a bonus. I did not even ask about the election of 2020. Whadaya know about that?

And everyone already knows the patented Nevadadad Triduodecahedron Future Telling Device is every bit as good as any other future telling device, even the one at Moodys, which I bet cost a lot more.

Apparently Krugman´s Idiots have the reins at Moody´s these days.

It was fine for The Zero to add $10 trillion to double the debt in 8 yrs, but this possible deficit will be the end of everything?

No buying the BS they are selling.

I suppose ignorant children born after ´86 cannot grasp that the economy will grow a lot due to the Trump tax cuts. I took Macroeconomics in college, and the text was very, very slanted. Fools like Galbraith and Paulson were honored with pages of explanation, while the genius Milton Friedman got 4 or 5 paragraphs in a sidebar. Even then, it was obvious to me that Paulson and Galbraith were full of it, and Friedman had it figured right. Since most of these dimbulbs probably got the same or worse brainwashing, and believed it, likethat fool Krugman, they are educated idiots.

Adam Rippon, in his own words, is “not a gay icon or America’s gay sweetheart.” No, “I am just America’s sweetheart.

A Teacher of the Year at a Florida middle school posted a Facebook message that has since gone viral saying parents need to “step up” when it comes to their kids’ behavior.

Friday on MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said Russian interference with U.S. elections and political processes that resulted in 13 indictments against Russian nationals was “equivalent” to the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japanese in 1941. Partial transcript as follows: NADLER: My reaction to the news is this is absolute proof of what we knew all along and what the president has denied, namely that we were attacked. This is a very serious attack against the United States by a hostile foreign power, an attack against our election process, our entire governing process. We know that the attack

The Bolshevik Revolution turned 100 last October. As Friday’s indictment of Russia´s Internet Research Agency reminds us, it´s been 100 years of tyrannical and murderous Russian regimes working to subvert democracy wherever they can and distort American public opinion by any means they can devise.

The specificity here is pretty damning. The FBI released a stunning admission today admitting they received prior a specific warning about Broward County Nikolas Cruz and his threats to carry out a school shooting. The FBI took no action. (Snip) The backdrop of this admission is especially troublesome as the FBI previously also admitted they were forewarned about the Tsarnaev brothers in the Boston Marathon Bombing 2013 and did nothing; and perhaps even more disturbing was the prior warning about the 2016 Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooter Omar Mateen.

ICE arrests 212 illegals, targets

Federal deportation officers staged one of the biggest enforcement actions in years against businesses in Los Angeles this week, arresting 212 people and serving audit notices to 122 businesses who will have to prove they aren’t hiring illegal immigrants. Nearly all of those arrested were convicted criminals, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE said it targeted Los Angeles because it’s a sanctuary city, meaning it refuses to fully cooperate with federal authorities on deportations from within its jails. That means agents and officers have to go out into the community, said Thomas D. Homan, the agency’s deputy director.

The nation’s adoration of moderate former Democratic President John F. Kennedy continues, making him the most popular recent president, according to a new survey. A new University of Virginia Center for Politics-Reuters/Ipsos survey, released in advance of President´s Day, found on a 1 to 10 rating that Kennedy had the best, followed by Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama. And while another recent poll found that Reagan was the past president most wanted to return to the White House, it is now Obama at the top.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is not yet done investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election after indicting 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for seeking to interfere in the 2016 election, according to a report Friday. The indictments cover just a portion of the investigation, which is expected to continue on for months, a person familiar with the probe told Bloomberg. The probe is also seeking to determine if Trump obstructed justice, the person said. Mueller has not publicly confirmed that his team has ever looked into possible efforts obstruct justice.

The criminal indictment of 13 Russians for allegedly trying to influence “U.S. political and electoral processes” provides no evidence of any collusion between these Russians – or any other Russian officials – and the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential race. While the description of alleged Russian activities is very troubling, it is important to note that the indictment makes no mention of any hacking or other activity that changed ballots, vote counts, or actually interfered with the election. In essence, the indictment is for trying to run the typical type of public misinformation campaign that the Soviet KGB was

The high court’s Friday afternoon orders list showed no action on the petition, a strong indication it will be denied. Scheduling constraints require the court to act quickly if they intend to hear the case before adjourning this summer.

San Salvador - Last week, President Trump torpedoed an immigration deal put forward by a bipartisan group of senators. The Senate responded by rejecting his own, harsher plan. By the end of the week, the immigration debate seemed deadlocked between the fate of the Dreamers and the fate of the wall. But one thing is clear: Any plan that purports to make America safer by making it harder for immigrants to obtain legal status and increasing deportations will actually do the opposite. These proposals, embraced by Mr. Trump, are the same decades-old policies that helped transform Mr. Trump’s archenemy, Mara Salvatrucha
