Egan Jones Downgrades US Credit Rating - US Credit Rating Downgrade - Fox Nation
So Obama tells his lefty ostriches to put their heads in the sand. That doesn't mean the downgrade did not occur. There will be more to follow. Obama will be asking for another debt limit increase in a few months. His budget did nothing to address our debt. Ryan's budget does.

Ryan's budget gets us to a balance in 2040, maybe. He cuts projected spending, but the spending still increases. The only one that will truly cut spending is Ron Paul, 1 Trillion in the first year.

Most surprisingly, this report continues, the mainstream US news media, including their most important television networks and major newspapers, dutifully followed the directives of the Obama regime and failed to uniformly inform the American people of this momentous event.
Major media is CNN, FOX, NY Times, ABC, NBC, CBS, Rueters, AP.

And the growing powerhouse called "China" is making inroads all over the world in countries once dependent on the US for economic support as the US sinks further into debt and bad ratings.

News Headlines
China’s economic might has rolled up to America’s doorstep in the Caribbean, with a flurry of loans from state banks, investments by companies and outright gifts from the government in the form of new stadiums, roads, official buildings, ports and resorts in a region where the United States has long been a prime benefactor.
..
Most analysts do not see a security threat, noting that the Chinese are not building bases or forging any military ties that could invoke fears of another Cuban missile crisis. But they do see an emerging superpower securing economic inroads and political support from a bloc of developing countries with anemic budgets that once counted almost exclusively on the United States, Canada and Europe.

The Ferengi (English pronunciation: /fəˈrɛŋɡi/) are a fictional extraterrestrial race from the Star Trek universe. They first appeared in "The Last Outpost", the fifth episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1987, during which they made first contact with the United Federation of Planets in 2364 on the planet Delphi Ardu, though they had been mentioned in the series' pilot, "Encounter at Farpoint". They and their culture are characterized by a mercantile obsession with profit and trade and their constant efforts to swindle people into bad deals. They are also known for their business acumen and for exploiting females.[1] Notable Ferengi characters include Quark, Rom, Nog, Ishka, Zek, and Brunt, all of whom were featured prominently in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
