  • Paul Krugman: The Great Snake Oil Slump (Why Trump's Tax Cuts are a Political Fizzle)

    New York Times ^ | 04/20/2018 | Paul Krugman
    Stop me if you’ve heard this before. A G.O.P. presidential candidate loses the popular vote, but somehow ends up in the White House anyway. Despite his dubious legitimacy, his allies in Congress take advantage of his election to ram through a huge tax cut that blows up the budget deficit while disproportionately benefiting the wealthy. While the big bucks go to the big incomes, however, the tax bill does throw some crumbs at the middle class, and Republicans try to sell the bill as a boon to working families. So far this account applies equally to George W. Bush and...

    Paul Krugman, who really, really, really wants you to know on his Twitter account that he's a Nobel laureate in economics, has made a name for himself for his bad economic forecasts. So bad, in fact, that President Trump and the Republican Party have awarded him their top spot in their 2017 Fake News Awards, writing: [Twenty seventeen] was a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage, and even downright fake news. Studies have shown that over 90% of the media's coverage of President Trump is negative.
  • Paul Krugman: “Make Pink Pussy Hats Symbol of Delivery from Evil”

    With hard news relatively scarce on this Boxing Day, I turned—for my sins—to the opinion page of the New York Times. And there I found Paul Krugman’s Christmas Day column. His latest jeremiad was curiously entitled “America Is Not Yet Lost.” If this is the optimistic Krugman, I’d hate to see the glum one! My headline reflects my pick for Krugman’s most atrocious line. The full sentence reads: “If American democracy survives this terrible episode, I vote that we make pink pussy hats the symbol of our delivery from evil.” But beyond that, Krugman’s column was a veritable cornucopia of...

    After making completely false claims about the GOP tax reform bill on ABC’s Good Morning America earlier on Sunday, Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos spent most of This Week leading the discussion tearing it down. After spending a couple minutes smearing the bill in his opening monologue, Stephanopoulos interviewed Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn where one of his first questions involved allegations GOP leaders bought off Tennessee Senator Bob Corker with a real estate provision: There's a lot more scrutiny of the bill, which was just released on Friday in these final hours. Including an article in the International Business Times,...

    At 12:42 am on Wednesday morning, November 9, 2016, the Liberal Nobel-Prize winning economist Paul Krugman filed an article for the New York Times titled “The Economic Fallout,” which began like this:“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...

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...

Dammit!!Two days later the Dow hit an all time high and 2 weeks later it hit 19K. In January it hit  20K, and in March, 21K.

Still waiting, and praying, for “never” to arrive.It might...

    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...

    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...

    Paul Krugman has already had to walk back his prediction of a global recession following Donald Trump’s presidential victory last night. His initial post on the New York Times’ website was confidently apocalyptic about the prospects of Donald Trump plunging the world into a depression: “If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.” He concluded by saying, “So we are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight. I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing has just happened.” Markets rebounded in...

    Paul Krugman went there in his hackish Monday New York Times column, “Predators in Arms,” arguing that Republican politicians tend to be sexual abusers. The text box: “Is there a partisan pattern here?” Krugman apparently has never heard of Bill Clinton accuser Juanita Broaddrick, or the infamous exploits of “Chappaquiddick” Sen. Ted Kennedy, or the statutory rape conviction of Democratic Rep. Mel Reynolds, or Rep. Garry Studds, who had a sexual relationship with an underage male page. And reporter Maggie Haberman had this weird description of Juanita Broaddrick, who accuses Bill Clinton of rape: "At other times, Mr. Trump retreated...

    May 11, 2016 Michael Covel An insidious new fantasy is blooming in Washington, D.C, academia and the media… Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders dreams about it in between bong hits. It’s lovingly endorsed by “off the wall” left-wing economist Paul Krugman. And the ultra-progressive Huffington Post calls it “the idea that could revolutionize the 21st century.” The hype surrounding this “revolutionary” idea will soon be an everyday talking point. And if you’re a hard-working citizen who takes care of your own responsibilities, you should pay extra close attention… Because you’re about to get fleeced and forced to enjoy it… Utopian...

    I grew up in Waco, Texas. When I was a child, the city was completely segregated – the schools, the churches, the lunch counters, etc. Public buildings not only had separate restrooms for blacks and whites, they even had separate drinking fountains. I had a nanny who spent a great deal of time with me. She taught me how to make a kite out of newspaper and ply wood and she often took me to the movies. We traveled by bus and because she was black, we had to sit in the back of the bus. At the theater we...

    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....

    Sometimes you wonder if the editorial writers for The Gray Lady ever read the rest of their newspaper. A front page story in last week’s New York Times described Donald Trump’s Tampa office as a “melting pot” of racial and ethnic diversity. The campaign workers include a young woman who recently arrived from Peru; an immigrant from the Philippines; a 70-year-old Lakota Indian; a teenage son of Russian immigrants; a Mexican-American. Yet on that same day, back on the editorial page, the writers write as if they were in another universe. Charles Blow was apoplectic over the fact that Ben...

    The New York Times on Friday and Saturday let its readers know that the Republicans were getting what they deserved for pandering to right-wing extremism and xenophobia, while Hillary Clinton had successfully gained the sensible center. Friday’s lead editorial, “The G.O.P.’s Monster in the Mirror,” began with a little implied Trumpian vulgarity, then smeared the two Republican senators in the presidential race as extremist. Paul Krugman doubled down, calling the field racist, while Ted Cruz was heckled and Hillary Clinton hailed on Saturday's front page. Holy Mitt, what a meltdown. Add this one to Donald Trump’s lengthening list of firsts:...

    In the early days of the American republic, newspapers were actually started by political parties, leading political figures and even presidents - to get their point of view across. Alexander Hamilton, for example, helped establish The Gazette of the United States, "a paper of pure Toryism," according to Thomas Jefferson, "disseminating the doctrines of monarchy, aristocracy, and the exclusion of the people." To offset this influence, Jefferson and Madison helped establish theNational Gazette, an outspoken critic of the administrations of Adams, Hamilton, and Washington, and an ardent advocate of the French Revolution. It wasn't until 1851 that Henry Raymond started...

In 2011, Ayers (shown) publicly claimed authorship of Dreams (see video of Ayers here) after Dr. Jack Cashill's forensic literary analysis - in a 2008 article and his more extensive book-length analysis in 2011, Deconstructing Obama had convincingly made the case that Ayers, a talented wordsmith, had written the book for the unskilled Obama to help launch the up-and-coming young comrade's political career. During Obama's 2008 run for the White House, his...

    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...
