Republican Leaders Are not Leading Much with Trump Around

Donald Trump did not damage the GOP but represents the damage done by Republican leaders. Every time the first symptom of a man’s folly appears, he strongly condemns it as a miscreant who came in uninvited and as an alien to everything he stands for. In other words, stop telling me how Donald Trump is damaging the Republican Party. The fever is not the cause of the infection. At the Weekly Standard, Fred Barnes pretty much tells Republican leaders they have no one to blame but themselves: “The Read more […]

Paul Krugman Declares War on Pizza

Naturally, he pretends the War on pizza is a defensive action against “partisan” pepperoni. Because Krugman is considered an intellectual leader to Liberals, you can’t simply dismiss his writings with the derision they deserve. He exists to construct rationalizations for the aggrandizement of power and the enslavement of the population. And now he’s set his gaze on the various pizzerias scattered across this great nation. He is constructing a narrative to make the Pizza into the Read more […]

The Difference between Paul Krugman and Chuck Schumer on Obamacare

Paul Krugman criticizes Chuck Schumer for criticizing Obamacare. Why are they different? Paul Krugman and Chuck Schumer are both liberals. They are both partisans to the Democrat Party. But they are displaying a divergence of opinion. As David Linton has posted, Schumer has issued a kind of Mea Culpa on the Affordable Care Act. Krugman has now responded in the New York Times: It’s easy to understand why Republicans wish health reform had never happened, and are now hoping that the Supreme Read more […]

Chinese Mountain-leveling Cities Show the Communists are Super-Keynsians!

It is now a proverb that Keynes believed you could stimulate the economy by paying someone to dig a hole and paying someone else to fill it up again. That should sound strange to many people, though when they’ve heard Paul Krugman extol a fake alien invasion or a hurricane as keys to helping the economy, Keynes seems relatively restrained. Well, the Chinese ruling class has apparently replaced Karl Marx with John Maynard Keynes. The Chinese government is almost literally following the cliché Read more […]

Krugman Paid Off to Write Rationalizations for Ruling Class

It is honestly a difficult task to pick the biggest hypocrite amongst Progressives. Al Gore is undoubtedly a tough one to vote against, with his multitude of homes using more power than several small cities, and his non-stop carbon-spewing travel. Barack Obama is also tough to beat, with his incessant preaching about the injustice of executive pay, while he and his wife take (often separate) multi-gazillion dollar vacations at taxpayer expense, at the same time trumpeting things he believes Read more […]

Iceland’s Political-Economy: The Good, The Ugly, & The Inconsistent

This is a mixture of the good and the ugly, and a powerful example of the inconsistencies of men. From Bloomberg: “Let Banks Fail Is Iceland Mantra as 2% Joblessness in Sight.” Iceland let its banks fail in 2008 because they proved too big to save. Now, the island is finding crisis-management decisions made half a decade ago have put it on a trajectory that’s turned 2 percent unemployment into a realistic goal. While the euro area grapples with record joblessness, led by more than 25 Read more […]

Krugman to Middle Class: You’re Dead; Get Used to it

If it was only Krugman, I wouldn’t bother with this, but he’s not only speaking for himself. Spend any time around monetary officials and one word you’ll hear a lot is “normalization.” Most though not all such officials accept that now is no time to be tightfisted, that for the time being credit must be easy and interest rates low. Still, the men in dark suits look forward eagerly to the day when they can go back to their usual job, snatching away the punch bowl whenever the party gets Read more […]

Yellen Condemns Congress For Not Trusting Economically Stimulating Space Aliens

The Huffington Post loves it, of course: “Janet Yellen Shames Congress For Austerity, Being Terrible.” Right. We have a seventeen-plus-trillion-dollar debt because of austerity. It looks like Janet Yellen will have no problem tackling one of Ben Bernanke’s most important jobs: shaming Congress for ruining the economy. Yellen reminded lawmakers of their sheer terribleness during a Senate Banking Committee hearing on Thursday about her nomination to replace Bernanke as chair of the Federal Reserve Read more […]

Deficits Bad Under Bush — Deficits Required Under Obama

You can always count on genius economist Paul Krugman to tell the truth … as he sees it. He wrote an article last week, published in the “paper of record” (hah), The New York Times entitled “Moment of Truthiness.” The article was about how voters “are often misinformed and politicians aren’t reliably truthful” when it comes to the deficit. On that point he will get no argument from me. Most voters don’t give two hoots about the federal deficit as they go off to their part-time Read more […]

Even Nobel-Winning Economists Think America Is A Democracy

I’ve been having a feud with one of my readers who, when I posted an image that read, “Democracy is the means by which those who adore authority and crave the security of servitude can use their superior numbers to enslave those who wish to be free,” accused me of bashing the fundamental system of governance upon which America was founded. And in a July 4 op-ed at the New York Times, Paul Krugman waxes philosophical and asks if we’re still the same country we were in 1776, to which he Read more […]

Paul Krugman: There Is No Debt Crisis

Krugman, the liberal economist who has found a home at the New York Times writing columns about how everyone else is an idiot, recently responded to a question on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” about Paul Ryan’s statement on the debt and deficit. Ryan stated that we’re spending a trillion dollars more than we take in, and that if we continue down this path, we’ll have a debt crisis. He said that the debt crisis will be manifested when our financial system has collapsed and our economy Read more […]

Obamacare Is the Death Panel

Awhile back, Sarah Palin gained fame or notoriety for mentioning how Obamacare involved death panels. That sparked a wave of righteous indignation and denials. Though, when they weren’t trying to dismiss Palin, Liberals like Paul Krugman didn’t hesitate to not only admit to death panels, but to present them as a feature. But saying that Obamacare uses death panels is really to positive a portrayal, According to one physician’s recent testimony, Obamacare doesn’t “have” death panels. Read more […]
