Are U.S. Government Bonds AAA or Junk?…And Who’s Lying?

The U.S. government is in debt $21 Trillion, an amount that can never be paid. Yet Moody’s and Fitch reaffirmed their top AAA rating on U.S. debt. Why do they do this? Do they have to? Why can’t politicians, the media, CEO’s, or anyone else, ever tell Americans the truth?

Good evening to all my Friends and Pals @ RonPaulLibertyReport, Streamed live 7 hours ago. The most prolific puppet head show posted on the internet? Do not be sad! The leader of the free world has a plan! WARNING! https://youtu.be/NPqNK56ZfHk

I am D-I-S-A-P-P-O-I-N-T-E-D with you Dr. Paul …. With all due respect, these gov't debt is to stimulate economy and to have real products coming out of citizens. I understand that there are welfare and other wasteful stuffs but still ….. you are talking as if gov't debt is the same as private debt.

Not saying we can "print" money forever. As long as there is potential improvements, the gov't ought to squeeze every inch out citizen productivity. And I don't see any problem doing money "printing" towards that end.

It annoys me that Libertarians and Progressives don't get along more. Ron's complaints and observations about our current system are almost mirror to what I hear on the progressive shows I watch.

A Nazi Skeleton in the Family Closet updated January 1, 2018 https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2017/03/02/nazi-skeleton-in-family-closet.htmlOn Jan. 10, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau replaced Foreign Minister Stephane Dion with Chrystia Freeland, a former journalist proud of her Ukrainian roots and well-known for her hostility toward Russia. At the time, a big question in Ottawa was why. Some analysts believed that Trudeau’s decision may have started when it still seemed likely that Hillary Clinton would become the new U.S. president and a tough line against Moscow was expected in Washington.

Another great video Dr. Paul! Is there any way you could possibly do an interview or a video talking about the number of Republican House and Congress members that have recently resigned. The number is astronomically high and most importantly there has been several Rep. members of the House and Senate who have said they have been threatened to resign. Thank you from a dedicated subscriber.

If US credit ratings were worth the breath it takes to say "Tripple A" we would have seen the rating agents all put in prison 10 years ago after their frauds and deceptions and their businesses closed down but neither happened and we have the same businesses no doubt employing the actual same proven liars and fraudsters today and we some how expect their ratings to be legit.

People know what US government bonds are worth, that is why no one is buying them (except the Fed's proxies).

I agree, Killjoy. I was actually pointing out the flaw in the logic of many statists who constantly claim that deficits do not matter, but yet demand we all pay our fair share of taxes. Taxation is extortion! It violates our right of self-ownership.

Bonds are a safe bet because the US still has a massive gold reserve and the most powerful military the world has ever known. US Bonds will continue to be a safe bet until that changes. Interesting that you keep advising people to cut US military spending. Now if you were to make it clear that we can re-capitalize the gold reserves along with other commodity reserves and force the banks to abide by a 100% reserve system, and still maintain the military, THAT would be a paradigm shift folks could get behind. And it can happen too. The reason… Read more »

How could it be a bond when the government is broke and only stays afloat on credit?

The Federal Debt means that other parties have $21 trillion saved up in U.S. dollar assets. Where do you think the dollars in your retirement account come from, any way?

And this isn't an assertion of speculation or theory, but just a fact of accounting definitions.

And because the U.S. Government holds the monopoly power to issue the U.S. dollar, it can no more go bankrupt than a bowling alley can run out of strikes.

Karl Haynes

Of course Treasury debt is AAA. It can always be paid back. If it is all paid back the federal reserve note will become worthless, but ALL the debt will be paid off.
A debt rating service does not take the value of the currency, only whether there is a risk that the debt will be paid back or not.
And the Treasury can always order the federal reserve to print more notes.
Unless you are saying the federal reserve will refuse the Treasury's demand for more federal reserve notes?

Karl Haynes

Debt is bi-partisan:
Reagan – tripled it
Bush I – doubled it
Clinton – almost doubled it (only one to balance the budget for a year or two until the blowjob)
Bush II – doubled it
Obama – doubled it

My grandparents bought me bonds when I was born. They held them until I was 21. Then I got $50…whoohooo
I think there was a time when people held onto those bonds.

US debt isn't true debt, IMHO.Congress does NOT have to borrow to pay bills. They can merely order the federal reserve to print as much money as they need. Yet, Congress passed a law to hand out these investment tools to the public which does a few things:1. Is used as an inflation tool. As the Pentagon floods cash into the economy, government debt takes federal reserves out of the economy – in exchange for T-bills, notes or bonds. If Congress simply spent as much as they wanted (as they are able to do via the Treasury), there'd be too… Read more »

Communists them selves have done there part to damage economies and the free market etc so they can exploit people's loss and spin it around to there agenda.

Look at what the cultural Marxists have done with there infiltration of the Education system, so they indoctrinate there students to suit there agendas.

The US doesnt want anybody to have nukes but i highly doubt we are welling to get rid of ours. Its a stupid move for any country to get rid of their nukes. Im sure america will try an evade once they think they have no nukes. They are great at breaking treaties, lying, and flip flopping. They been doing that since they landed on plymouth rock.
