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!

Okay. (sigh!) I´ll drag out the Nevadadad Triduodecahedron future telling device and see what it says about this- Consulting, consulting. Ah, there it is. It´s - wait- focus, focus- dial in three years in the future- Ah, clear. "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.

I´m hoping Trump doesn´t end up bogged down in the swamp! I´ve got confidence in him (still)... but the confidence is rattled a bit by our do-nothing deep-state Congress (only about 10 of whom seem to even care about the National Debt any more) and the faceless pulsating-amoeba bureaucracy that only grows.

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.

An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide. Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported. Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.” Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that´s

“How many times is this going to go on until the American people say enough is enough?” Florida Sen. Bill Nelson asked in response to the latest school shooting in Parkland, Fla., where 17 died. (Snip) This violence didn´t occur when I was growing up. So what is causing it? I have three theories. First: America has a moral problem. In his farewell address, George Washington said, “Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid

Adam Rippon, in his own words, is “not a gay icon or America’s gay sweetheart.” No, “I am just America’s sweetheart. And I am just an icon.” (Snip) This will come as little surprise to those who have been following these Olympic Games. Even before the Games began, Rippon, one of the first openly gay male athletes to compete for the United States in an Olympics, was in the headlines over a feud with Vice President Mike Pence. Since, he’s become one of the most recognizable stars of these Olympics, a celebrated member of the gay community, as well as

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. (Snip) The middle school teacher said over her almost two decades as an educator that she’s seen an increase in violence and a lack of compassion among students. “Until we, as a country, are willing to get serious and talk about mental health issues, lack of available care for the mental health issues, lack of discipline in the home, horrendous lack of parental support when the schools are

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. (Snip) As of this week, Mark Zuckerberg, owner of Facebook, is now directly colluding with Putin to influence world opinion in favor of the tyrant´s regime. It’s happening before your very eyes. Zuckerberg created one of the world’s largest and most important platforms for spreading news and information — and fake news and disinformation. It was

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. […] Mateen’s background, however, was checked again by G4S in 2013 after the

ICE arrests 212 illegals, targets
122 businesses in LA sweep

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. A previous version of this story inaccurately quoted the poll. In the survey, President Trump

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 Supreme Court appears poised to reject the Justice Department’s request to overturn a lower court order requiring the continued administration of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program. 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. The Supreme Court sits from early October to late June, and the schedule for a given term is generally set by January. If the justices planned to add a case to their

Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband. And they have declined an invitation to discuss their concerns with President Donald Trump, whom they call "disgusting."

Students are in the middle of a lie-in protest outside the White House over gun laws just days after 17 people were killed in the Florida high school shooting massacre. Groups of students from Washington DC staged the protest on Monday on a road leading to the White House. They took turns lying on the road for three minutes - the same amount of time 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a firing spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week.

Now that the gun control advocates have had their fifteen minutes of fame, let’s start focusing on the real issues impacting the rise in school shootings since that infamous day in Columbine in 1999. Issue number one that no one in the mainstream media or government wants to acknowledge: fatherlessness. Specifically, the impact of fatherlessness on the boys who grew up to become school shooters. Dr. Warren Farrell, author of the new book The Boy Crisis, explains: Minimal or no father involvement, whether due to divorce, death, or imprisonment, is common to Adam Lanza, Elliott Rodgers, Dylan Roof and Stephen Paddock.
