The U.S. cannot say it was not warned. For years now, sovereign credit rating agencies have repeatedly told Congress to get its torrent of deficit spending under control, or else face a downgrade of its gold-plated Triple-A credit rating. Standard and Poor’s (S&P) was the first agency in the West to fire its warning shot, downgrading its outlook on U.S. debt from “stable” to “negative.” The threat of a downgrade is now, meaning we don’t have 26 years to balance the budget.
Donald Trump has created quite a stir with his serious-sounding talk of running for president, to the extent that he even went on the Rush Limbaugh program last Friday to talk about it. Others are less enthused. The Club for Growth has denounced him as a “tax-hiking liberal,” George Will says his policies would lower the standard of living for Americans, and Mark Levin has pointed out his financial contributions to liberals like Anthony Weiner, Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, RINO Charlie Crist, and Harry Reid. The facts are clear: while Trump has some conservative opinions, for the most part he is a liberal.
Islamic Shariah law has invaded America. One example of how this is so, is that our government and military officials are already demanding that Islam be given deferential treatment, even at the expense of the freedom of religion of Christians. When an obscure pastor burns a Koran in America, we are told this Koran-burning is responsible for Islamic violence, and Bibles sent my missionaries to Afghanistan are burned by the U.S. military, lest their existence inspire Islamic violence.
