US Senator: The main threat to the United States is not Russia, but national debt

63
Perhaps, for the first time in recent years, a representative of the legislative branch was found in the United States, who did not name Russia, China, Ebolu or Kim Jong-un as a threat to this country. The representative of the US Senate from the state of Tennessee, Bob Corker, said that the main threat to the United States is continuing to grow American debt at a significant pace.


To date, the level of US government debt is over 20 trillion 630 billion dollars. With this, debt continues to grow at a rate of around 300 thousand dollars per minute.

According to Republican Bob Corker, if this process is not stopped, then by 2028, the ratio of total American debt to GDP will exceed 90%.

US Senator: The main threat to the United States is not Russia, but national debt


Corker:
This is the worst threat to us. And it does not come from ISIS (* prohibited in the Russian Federation), Iran, Russia or someone else. This is precisely the threat of growing debt. We continue to make external borrowing. They lead us to debt under 100% of GDP.


Earlier in the IMF, it was noted that in fact, the United States had already overcome its debt mark in 100% of GDP, if we consider the total debt in full.

If you turn to storiesfor the USA, the only instrument for writing off one’s own debt was not at all the transition to “tightening” one’s own belt and not austerity, but a factor in participation in wars. Does Corker's statement mean that the US is considering such a variant of “writing off” a substantial part of the debt?

It should be recalled that the People’s Republic of China is the largest holder of US foreign debt.

          for the United States, the only instrument for writing off its own debt was not at all a transition to "tightening" its own belt and not a regime of austerity, but the factor of participation in wars. Does Corker’s statement mean that the US is also considering this option of “writing off” a substantial part of the debt?
          So! And what does it mean !!!
          It should be recalled that the People’s Republic of China is the largest holder of US foreign debt.
          But this does not mean that Washington will provoke TMV immediately against the PRC, and not against Russia.
          The Washington Regional Committee is strategically conquering and subjugating the world in parts, tactically destroying under its own weak links among its adversary countries.
          Hitler also did not immediately attack the USSR, but first attacked the countries of Europe, subjugating his life resources before attacking the USSR.

          So, in meaning, the speech of the Republican Corker is a “double bottom” speech!

        Why are the US so willing to buy US debt? Because the United States guarantees unconditional repayment of money invested in these obligations. As soon as the United States violates this guarantee, the financial Armageddon will begin.

      It is only interesting how he is going to stop the process of increasing the public debt? The American Congress will not allow dissatisfaction with inflation and a decline in the standard of living that undermines the rotten image of the "most successful country in the world", the army around the world must be maintained - they will print green paper as much as necessary. That's just to put this paper where? Out of habit - airplanes rafting cash around the world?

        The mechanism still exists: the debt rate is many times less than dollar inflation. It’s just that the debt has already reached the level when this mechanism became ineffective. And the problem now is not in the public debt. The planet is small, there is nowhere to "push" new dollars. And the pyramid, which stops growing, begins to crumble. Law of life hi

          So I'm talking about ... And how to fix it? To abandon the policy of genocide to the "lower", according to America, the races - Arabs, blacks and other Asians. Be fruitful - well, let them be fruitful. Get more dollars. Not to spoil relations with those who can swallow a huge amount of dollars - with Russia and China, in particular. Not to push troops around the world, but loans (after the Second World War they behaved smarter in Europe). Well, and most importantly - to moderate the greed of their financial hucksters, who, in addition to stable profits, plan a stable growth in stable profits. Well, profit cannot grow endlessly in constant or even worsening economic conditions !!!
          And America does everything WITH ACCURACY TO THE WAY !!! They don’t read Karl Marx, they consider him "communist propaganda" But in vain ... The economist was the strongest !!! I taught him twice in two universities - in the Soviet and early post-Soviet ones, to which Soros had not yet reached. Therefore, at a mature age, starting from scratch - an auxiliary worker at a construction site, I now have something to leave for children, grandchildren and, hopefully, great-grandchildren.

            Your mistake is that you are trying to assess the situation from the standpoint of "reasonable, good, eternal" drinks

            But the essence is reduced to the simplest: if the US ceases to live in debt, the standard of living of the average American will decrease by 4-6 times. Try to explain to the tiger that eating meat is not good. And if a tiger tastes human blood, then it is already impossible to re-educate such a cannibal tiger, it is simply destroyed.

          In fact, the dollar takes the place of the national currency of other countries. Accordingly, national currencies are compressed, and the United States can painlessly increase its debts and budget deficit.
          Therefore, any actions to de-dollarize the economies of other countries will run up against US resistance up to the use of military force in an emergency. The growth of the US military budget indirectly confirms this process.

              They will repay the public debt at any moment, it is enough to turn on the printing press, and that since these pieces of paper will not cost anything after that, they will say: do not worry, the citizens of the bourgeois will have new ones for themselves. This is a circus, big top with "Racing vertically" with the function of a vacuum cleaner to pump real values ​​from the globe. So the big top will work while there are burdock onlookers and speculators buying up tickets for this performance. Well, whoever the onlooker tries not to let or lure is to him forehead, as Asket wrote.
              It’s just that the big top makes the dollar expensive, and the industrialists don’t like it anymore, because it reduces the possibilities of American exports. So the general has a good one, including and financial support and no one will fire him.

        Yes, it would be far to deduce that neither China nor Russia can withdraw their money anywhere else, the Chinese economy is 99,9% focused on the United States, the Russian 100% is filled with mediocrity and thieves.

    This is the only US senator who is worried about his country. As a way out of the debt situation, pissing mattresses see only war. Nah, leave Trump for a second term and give him more rights and he will simply drop the dollar to zero and write off all debts from the United States and tell everyone to forget about the US debt. Well, the United States is just a continuation of the vile England, only more sophisticated, meaner and more criminal. So do not bother, there will be no war, the United States is afraid of war, especially with Russia, as this will be their sunset. And so with the forced cancellation of debts, mattresses will hurry until they finally lose their military advantage and could threaten military forces that do not agree with this country. And China, Japan and other special holders of US securities will simply be forced to survive this open robbery.

    American public debt is long overdue to rename the world tax. Because it is absolutely clear that the USA is not going to return anything to anyone. And if someone does not ask for the return of "investments", but simply questions the need for participation in this pyramid called "treasuries", he will immediately receive democratic bombardment and humanitarian sanctions.
    The Chinese, it seems to me, decided to crack down on the United States as a true xenomorph from Aliens. Those. use their own body as a carrier, become externally the same, use his own power against himself, and ultimately go from the inside.
    And for some reason I like this approach very much.

      Good comparison. But I think that the Chinese will not be able to. USA will not give. States - the main consumer of Chinese goods.

    This is the worst threat to us. And it does not come from ISIS (* prohibited in the Russian Federation), Iran, Russia or anyone else. This is the threat of growing debt.

    And whatever one may say. In the back streets of consciousness is at least one sensible thought.

    The planet is small, there is nowhere to "shove" new dollars. And the pyramid, which stops growing, begins to crumble. Law of life

    So I'm talking about ... And how to fix it? To abandon the policy of genocide to the "lower", according to America, the races - Arabs, blacks and other Asians. Be fruitful - well, let them be fruitful. Get more dollars. Not to spoil relations with those who can swallow a huge amount of dollars - with Russia and China, in particular. Not to push troops around the world, but loans (after the Second World War they behaved smarter in Europe). Well, and most importantly - to moderate the greed of their financial hucksters, who, in addition to stable profits, plan a stable growth in stable profits. Well, profit cannot grow endlessly in constant or even worsening economic conditions !!!
    And America does everything WITH ACCURACY TO THE WAY !!! They don’t read Karl Marx, they consider him "communist propaganda" But in vain ... The economist was the strongest !!! I taught him twice in two universities - in the Soviet and early post-Soviet ones, to which Soros had not yet reached. Therefore, at a mature age, starting from scratch - an auxiliary worker at a construction site, I now have something to leave for children, grandchildren and, hopefully, great-grandchildren.



    "Therefore, at a mature age, starting from scratch - an assistant at a construction site, I now have something to leave for children, grandchildren and, hopefully, great-grandchildren enough ..."
    Can you adopt us? In the evenings of Marx we will honor the account for you! wassat
