Chinese Downgrade US Government Credit Rating!

“I will break the pride of your power” (Leviticus 26:19)


As I have been warning for years, the US has too much debt and this will have terrible consequences.  A less severe consequence that most Americans over age 40 probably never thought could possibly happen, happened today:

Leading Chinese credit rating agency downgrades USA government bonds

China’s Dagong Cuts U.S. Credit Rating to A+ on Fed’s Quantitative Easing

By Joshua Fellman and Ye XieNov 9, 2010

China’s Dagong Global Credit Rating Co. reduced its credit rating for the U.S. to A+ from AA, citing a deteriorating intent and ability to repay debt obligations after the Federal Reserve announced more monetary easing.

The credit outlook for the U.S. is “negative,” as the Fed’s plan to buy government debt will erode the value of the dollar and “entirely encroaches” on the interests of creditors, analysts at Dagong, one of China’s five official ratings companies, said in a statement.

China, the “poor” Asian country, is telling the world that the mighty USA has credit problems and is becoming a credit risk.  And while some may believe that part of the reasons for the downgrade are political or spiteful, the reality is that it is true that the USA is now a credit risk.  I actually believe that Dagong’s rating is much too high for the USA.

If others start to realize how risky the US government is, interest rates will skyrocket, and the national debt will be greatly increased.  This could be so bad that we could get to the point that if the US government took practically ALL THE INCOME OF ALL ITS PEOPLE it still would run a budget deficit.  We are getting closer and closer to a scenario that could get there.  The move by the Chinese credit agency is one step in that direction.

Of course, it is not just the Chinese who realize the risk with the USA.  Notice the following:

Interview With German Finance Minister Schäuble

‘The US Has Lived on Borrowed Money for Too Long’

Spiegel – Nov 8, 2010

In an interview with SPIEGEL, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble, 68, criticizes US calls for Germany to reduce exports, outlines his plans for an insolvency framework for indebted European nations and the emphasizes the significance of the German-French axis for Europe…

Schäuble:…The United States lived on borrowed money for too long, inflating its financial sector unnecessarily and neglecting its small and mid-sized industrial companies. There are many reasons for America’s problems, but they don’t include German export surpluses.,1518,727801,00.html

The USA has lived on borrowed money too long, and this will end in catastrophe according to Bible prophecy (cf. Habakkuk 2).

There is an interesting prophecy in the Hebrew scriptures that the Chinese news item brought back to mind:

43 “The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. 44 He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.

45 “Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you. (Deuteronomy 28:43-45, NKJV)

Notice that a curse for disobedience was to borrow from foreigners (which the USA does extensively) and that they would start to rise up.

This is being fulfilled.  Prophecy moves forward–significant personal repentance is probably the only way out (as national repentance for the USA seems highly unlikely).
