Meet The New Landlords

 
Money quote from this PCR piece; h/t SLL:

***

…If you watched the 1 hour 20 minute video of the Victory Day Parade, you are aware that the celebration sent a powerful message. Russia is a first class military power, and Russia is backed by China and India, whose soldiers marched with Russia’s in the parade. So, while the increasingly irrelevant West, absorbed in its own self-importance, snubbed the celebration of the victory that the Red Army gave them over Hitler, the three largest countries in the world were present united. Russia has the largest land mass, and China and India, also large land masses, have the world’s largest populations. The celebration in Moscow made it clear that Washington has failed miserably to isolate Russia. What Washington has done is to make the BRICS more unified. With the President of China sitting at the right hand of Putin, the celebration also made it completely clear even to the morons in the Obama regime that Washington is no longer the Uni-power…

Call the WAAAAAAHmbulance.

Well-earned mockery and derision from KD.

And by-the-by, Officer Jobsworth:

If you have no duty to protect individual taxpayers (and you don’t), why should you even still have a taxpayer-funded job?

Other than to be a road-tax bandit and a tool of social change for your political bosses, that is.

Facts are facts.

SLL: The Recession Is Here – Prelude To Depression

screwed

Robert points to reality amidst the spinning:

***

…The world is more indebted than it has ever been and debt has grown far faster than underlying economies for decades. The global economy is saturated. Years of central bank monetization of financial assets and interest rate suppression, culminating in the most massive such effort in history over the last six years, have driven the marginal return on productive investment to less than zero, left the global economy with huge surpluses of everything except solvency, and retarded saving, the true source of future economic growth. Finally, governments and central banks have no pixie dust left to counter economic contraction and its attendant financial stress. Short-term interest rates are zero, or in some cases negative; with the world choking on it, additional debt only imposes additional costs and no benefits, and central bank balance sheets are already grotesquely swollen relative to their equity capital…
