Prophesy Unto Us Lies
Your future is in more trouble than you know.
We have just seen a bold attempt on the part of the Obama administration to persuade a private organization to tell a lie in order to conceal how bad our financial situation really is.
The Washington Post has revealed that officials of the current administration approached Standard and Poor’s to not lower the credit rating of the United States from “stable,” to “negative.” The venerable ratings agency went ahead anyway.
The Obama officials told “told S&P analysts that they were underestimating the ability of politicians in Washington to fashion a compromise to curb deficits, a Treasury official said. They argued a change in ratings was not needed at this time because the debt was manageable and the administration had a viable plan in the works, the official said.”
So, let me get this straight. An Obama Treasury official tried to get S&P to not downgrade the credit rating of the United States from stable to negative because the “debt is manageable.” The administration has promoted no plan whatsoever that would manage the already accumulated debt – which by the way, Mr. Obama has already promoted a budget that would add another $10 trillion in the next 9 years. That’s on top of the $14.3 trillion we have today. No. What we got from Mr. Obama was a personal dressing down of the only man who has offered a serious plan to deal with the debt – Rep. Paul Ryan, R, WI. Mr. Ryan brings out a plan to deal with the debt, and Mr. Obama rather than lead on the issue, or offer another way to deal with the problem, denounces Mr. Ryan for making a proposal.”
Just so I understand; Obama’s Treasury told S&P that they have a viable plan in the works. If that’s the case, they have not revealed it to the public. Have you seen any plan from the Obama administration that actually deals with the debt that the government has run up? You haven’t because there is no such plan from the Obama administration. Soooo, they lie to S&P in order to get S&P to lie to the public in order to get Mr. Obama reelected.
One more thing. Treasure officials told S&P that they “were underestimating the ability of politicians in Washington to fashion a compromise to curb deficits.” Hnh huh. Is there a single person on earth who believes that anyone actually “underestimates the ability of politicians in Washington to fashion a compromise to curb deficits?” If so, that person should be committed against their will because they are a danger to themselves or to others.
This all reminds me of the prophet Isaiah (30:9, 10) when he said of the people, “For they are a rebellious people, lying children; children unwilling to hear the instruction of the LORD; so say to the seers, ‘Do not see,’ and to the prophets,’Do not prophesy to us what is right; speak to us smooth things, prophesy illusions…’”
If you think the housing crash was bad; if you think the energy policy of the Democrat Party is bad; if you think the GM bailout was bad; if you think the ‘stimulus’ was bad; if you think trying to conduct 3 wars was bad; if you think buying groceries and gasoline is hard – just wait until the debt crash hits. Your future will be much different than you expected it to be.
If you feel like you’ve been lied to, you’re right. And you know it for sure.
