  • A "Terrified" Paul Krugman Wakes Each Morning in a "State of Existential Dread"

    New York Times Keynesian economics columnist Paul Krugman as has been having a hard time ever since Donald J. Trump was elected President in November 2016. However, the "conscience of liberalism" told Twitter today that he is "terrified" and suffering from a “state of existential dread.” Primarily because, as Krugman puts forth in a bizarre theory, Trump "enjoys seeing others hurt." Krugman believes the 45th President may soon be impeached or removed from office by the 25th amendment. Because of that, the President has nothing left to lose. "He can't save his presidency. He can, however, still hurt a lot...

    RUSH: Paul Krugman writes that I’m “a terrible person” in the New York Times because of the lies that they’re reporting I said about the hurricane not being a threat. This is the New York Times and the Washington Post are both lying. I mean, there’s no other way to describe it. There’s no other word. They’re not misspeaking; it’s not that they have it wrong. There’s no way they could not know they are publishing lies and they are continuing to do so. In fact, Krugman said, “Well, it just means that Limbaugh is a terrible person. But that’s...

    Let’s just step back and admire this situation for a moment. One or more editorial writers at the NY Times, the folks who speak with the paper’s voice of authority on every subject you can imagine, will plead with a judge to believe they did not know the basic facts of a story they were writing about, including facts reported in their own paper! The Times’ defense is: We so dumb. I find this indescribably delicious, especially given that it was Paul Krugman who used his perch at the NY Times to lead this false charge against Palin back in...
  • Who Ate Republicans’ Brains?

    New York Times ^ | July 31, 2017 | by Paul Krugman
    When the tweeter-in-chief castigated Senate Republicans as “total quitters” for failing to repeal the Affordable Care Act, he couldn’t have been more wrong. In fact, they showed zombie-like relentlessness in their determination to take health care away from millions of Americans. So where did this zombie horde come from? Who ate Republicans’ brains? When they finally got their chance at repeal, the contrast between what they had promised and their actual proposals produced widespread and justified public revulsion. Given this history, the Republican health care disaster was entirely predictable. You can’t expect good or even coherent policy proposals from a...

    They're held to the highest esteem of the media and the Democrat left. Their words are must-reads in the classrooms and coffee shops. The problem is their hatred of Donald Trump didn't cost their reputations because as long as they continue to disparage the president, they'll still be called back to give their opinions on cable news and retain their standing in academia. The problem is many Americans listened to them and lost their shirts.

    [the failing] New York Times ^ | May 12, 2017 | by Paul Krugman
    The denarius, ancient Rome’s silver coin, was supposedly the daily wage of a manual worker. If so, the tax cuts that the richest 1 percent of Americans will receive if the Affordable Care Act is repealed — tax cuts that are, obviously, the real reason for repeal — would amount to the equivalent of around 500 pieces of silver each year. What inspired this calculation? The spectacle of Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, and Paul Ryan, the speaker of the House, defending Donald Trump’s firing of James Comey. Everyone understands that Mr. Comey was fired not because of his...

    You know with all the rising temperatures caused by Rep. John Lewis’ (D-GA) remarks about President-elect Donald Trump not being a legitimate president, we forgot about liberal economist and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman who first said that Trump’s win was illegitimate. Now, Krugman says that calling Trump an illegitimate president is a form of patriotism (via NYT [emphasis mine]: Now Mr. Lewis says that he won’t attend the inauguration of Donald Trump, whom he regards as an illegitimate president. As you might expect, this statement provoked a hysterical, slanderous reaction from the president-elect – who, of course, got his start in...

    Bob BryanJanuary 6, 2017 Paul Krugman is at a loss about the future of the Trump presidency, but he's not hopeful. The Nobel-winning economist and New York Times columnist is concerned about possible connections between the president-elect and Russia. "We are, I'd argue, in much deeper and more treacherous waters than even the pessimists are saying," Krugman tweeted Friday. The election of Trump is tainted, Krugman said, because of the FBI's announcement weeks before Election Day regarding its reopened investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server, and because of the Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chair...

    Donald Trump got within striking distance of the White House — or, more precisely, Comey-and-Putin range — thanks to overwhelming support from white working-class voters. These voters trusted his promise to bring back good manufacturing jobs while disbelieving his much more credible promise to take away their health care. They have a rude shock coming.

    Liberal New York Times columnist Paul Krugman suggested Friday that President-elect Donald Trump could have an incentive to allow or launch a 9/11-style attack on the United States once in office. Krugman wrote that President George W. Bush came into office with questions surrounding his legitimacy that were “dispelled” by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Krugman surmised that gave Trump “interesting incentives.”

    Conspiracy theorist Paul Krugman speculated on Twitter Friday that President-elect Trump has an incentive to allow a major terror attack in the United States: Thought: There was (rightly) a cloud of illegitimacy over Bush, dispelled (wrongly) by 9/11. Creates some interesting incentives for Trump— Paul Krugman (@paulkrugman) December 16, 2016 It’s not hard to unpack this. Bush was elected in 2000 by the narrowest of margins. Less than a year later we had the worst terror attack on U.S. soil in our history. The attack caused the public to rally around President Bush. So, if President-elect Trump wanted a similar...

    Nobel laureate and unabashed liberal Paul Krugman went on the warpath in an op-ed in The New York Times, where he declared that Donald TrumpÂ’s win was illegitimate, that hackers working for the Russians interfered on behalf of Trump, and that heÂ’s pretty much a Russian plant (the Siberian candidate), who doesnÂ’t deserve any deference because this election was tainted (via NYT): So this was a tainted election. It was not, as far as we can tell, stolen in the sense that votes were counted wrong, and the result wonÂ’t be overturned. But the result was nonetheless illegitimate in...

    It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover? Frankly, I find it hard to care much, even though this is my specialty. The disaster for America and the world has so many aspects that the economic ramifications are way down my list of things to fear. Still, I guess people want an answer: If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.

    Liberal New York Times columnist Paul Krugman accused the FBI and its director, James Comey, of fixing the election in favor of Republican Donald Trump. In an op-ed published Monday morning, Krugman echoed a familiar line from Trump, who regularly says the election is "rigged" against outsider candidates, but he said it's Democrat Hillary Clinton who has the disadvantage. "The election was rigged by James Comey, the director of the F.B.I. His job is to police crime — but instead he used his position to spread innuendo and influence the election," he wrote. "Was he deliberately putting a thumb on...

    In the wake of embarrassing emails released via Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and an even more embarrassing FBI report, Hillary Clinton supporters have responded angrily toward any concerns raised by these new releases. An elitist dribble of condescension masquerading as a pro-Clinton Op-Ed written by economist Paul Krugman was an inevitable reaction to this negative publicity. This “Hillary or else” mentality was aggressively advocated by Krugman in Clinton’s first presidential campaign against Obama and even more so throughout the 2016 Democratic primaries. Krugman perpetuated the Bernie Bros smear campaign by alleging on several occasions that Sanders’ support stemmed...

    Paul Krugman is confused. He can’t figure out why Americans are so gloomy that they might vote for Donald Trump in November. From the columnist’s perch at the New York Times, things in America seem A-okay: If you want to feel good about the state of America, you could do a lot worse than what I did this morning: take a run in Riverside Park. There are people of all ages, and, yes, all races exercising, strolling hand in hand, playing with their dogs, kicking soccer balls and throwing Frisbees. There are a few homeless people, but the overall atmosphere...

    Now, I’m not a political scientist or polling expert, nor do I even try to play one on TV. But I am fairly numerate, and I assiduously follow real experts like The Times’s Nate Cohn. And they’ve taught me some basic rules that I keep seeing violated. First, at a certain point you have to stop reporting about the race for a party’s nomination as if it’s mainly about narrative and “momentum.” That may be true at an early stage, when candidates are competing for credibility and dollars. Eventually, however, it all becomes a simple, concrete matter of delegate counts....

    New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is a bit apoplectic that the left, which has always wanted single-payer health care, is still pushing for single-payer health care. "Why," he frets, "do we hear not just conservatives but also many progressives trashing President Obama's biggest policy achievement?" He goes on to say, "A lot of what I hear from the left is not so much a complaint about how the reform falls short as outrage that private insurers get to play any role. The idea seems to be that any role for the profit motive taints the whole effort." Krugman says...

    ew York Times columnist Paul Krugman produced another doozy of column on Friday in which he warns that climate change will result in armaggedon and it will be fault of those dastardly Republicans. The opening paragraph of Krugman's column predicts, "Future historians — if there are any future historians — will almost surely say that the most important thing happening in the world during December 2015 was the climate talks in Paris. True, nothing agreed to in Paris will be enough, by itself, to solve the problem of global warming. But the talks could mark a turning point, the beginning...
