The USA took another credit rating hit! Did you even hear about it before this?

America saw another downgrade on its credit rating last week. The
White House ordered the press to keep quiet and they meekly obeyed. But
that’s not the worst problem. If the Big Three follow through on the
downgrade, prices of all commodities, including gold, silver, and oil,
could rise sharply.

Credit rating action

Egan-Jones Ratings Company (EJR)
is an independent credit rating company that answers only to investors.
No company or government that issues commercial or sovereign debt has
any influence over its decisions. A source familiar with such matters
(specifically an account executive for a major precious-metals brokerage
firm) pointed out to CNAV that the Big Three credit rating
agencies (Standard and Poor, Moody, and Fitch) all work under such
influence. Therefore, if any country’s sovereign debt deserves a
downgrade, Egan-Jones will downgrade it first. The Big Three will follow
Egan-Jones’ lead when they can no longer deny the reality.

In 2008, Egan-Jones was first to predict the crash of the housing
market. Last year, they were the first to downgrade the American credit
rating from AAA to AA+. Standard and Poor merely followed Egan-Jones’

Federal Reserve headquarters. Their monetization of the debt caused another credit rating downgrade.

On Thursday, 5 April, Egan-Jones Ratings downgraded American sovereign debt again. The American credit rating is now AA.

    Yep, it seems like I heard that this was a very strong possibility when the socialist refused to cut his excessive spending. So it's finally happened. Hey libs out there! How do you feel about your man now huh?????? I bet you folks are just as proud as can be with him now.

    democratic criminals

    she is a criminal, they ALL are. I don't care what letter is after their name, 98% of all congress has received lobbyist funds. That makes them ALL responsible. Get a grip on reality. It can't possibly be only the republicans or only the democrats fault.

    I remember when this finical slide started, ole big ears said he had it handled. The only thing that is keeping us from being even further downgraded is the fact that the dollar is still the preferred currency. If that changes we will be no better off than Greece.
  • beachbum Mark P. 2012/04/10 14:32:28
    And China along with others are trying real hard to change the preferred currency - and, yeah, like you said, when that happens, this country is toast.

    because obummer doesn't want this on th efront page, he wants the NBPP and trayvon on the front page, how better to keep people from looking at facts, than to have a more personally polarizing issue-while we ignore his dictatorial BS.

    knew it was coming. Lets see if Geitner and Obama can explain this one away....can't blame Bush, will probably blame the American People for not living within their means...do as I say, not as I do crap.
  • beachbum rknothead 2012/04/10 14:35:24
    They'll blame congress, the Israelis, Bush, Mickey Mouse - everyone but themselves. What is scary is the thought of all the goofballs who will buy what they say, and vote for them anyhow.

    How do you know the WH ordered the media to keep quiet? Not arguing, asking.

    If it did, it's not working, right?

    No surprise here... The change begins with us, from the bottom up, if we keep voting for the same garbage, we will have the same results.
