    New York Times opinion writer and economist Paul Krugman predicted early Wednesday morning that the stock market will “never” recover from Donald Trump’s presidential victory, only to be proven spectacularly wrong in less than a day. Instead of collapsing, the Dow Jones Industrial Average surged to an all-time high shortly before the closing bell. Futures markets imploded Tuesday night as soon as it became apparent Trump was likely to win. At their nadir, futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average had dropped 750 points. At that point, Krugman chose to release a blog post in which he predicted these jitters...
  • Kavanaugh Will Kill the Constitution [Paul Krugman.......]

    Kavanaugh Will Kill the Constitution The legitimacy of the Supreme Court is on the line. By Paul Krugman Opinion Columnist Sept. 6, 2018 At a fundamental level, the attempt to jam Brett Kavanaugh onto the Supreme Court closely resembles the way Republicans passed a tax cut last year. Once again we see a rushed, nakedly partisan process, with G.O.P. leaders withholding much of the information that’s supposed to go into congressional deliberations. Once again the outcome is all too likely to rest on pure tribalism: Unless some Republicans develop a very late case of conscience, they will vote along party...

    Who’s Afraid of Nancy Pelosi? By Paul Krugman Opinion Columnist Aug. 13, 2018 Normally, a party that gives away $2 trillion without worrying about where the money will come from can buy itself at least a few votes. But Donald Trump’s tax cut remains remarkably unpopular, and Republicans barely mention it on the campaign trail — in fact, Democrats are running against the tax cut more than Republicans are running on it. Nor are Republicans talking much about Trump’s trade war, which also remains unpopular. What, then, does the G.O.P. have to run on? It can hype the supposed menace...

    Trolling Trump-haters is so easy and so much fun that we are going to see a lot more of it. After all, so many people that pretend they are smart have made ridiculous predictions of doom that President Trump’s track record of success makes them look like fools. Even Sarah Sanders can’t resist. Yesterday, on Twitter (aka, Troll Central) she posted this: We’ve come a long way since Paul Krugman, writing in the New York Times after the election, said the Trump presidency would bring a “global recession, with no end in sight”...https://t.co/IbZrhK4vZB — Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) June 3,...
  • Krugman Cries Treason After Stefan Halper Outed As FBI Infiltrator, There's Just One Problem...

    05/20/2018 6:03:38 AM PDT · by blam · 52 replies
    Friday’s outing of longtime CIA and MI6 asset Stefan Halper as an FBI asset sent to infiltrate the Trump campaign has social media abuzz today. Reactions have ranged from celebration to outrage, with little inbetween. To recap, after two weeks of hunting for a “mole” in the Trump campaign, the New York Times and Washington Post both printed incredibly detailed descriptions of Halper – withholding all but his name, solidly corroborating a March report by the Daily Caller‘s Chuck Ross about Halper’s meetings with the Trump aides. Neither publication give Ross credit, of course. Somehow several anti-Trump intellectuals got their...

    Matt Bevin, the conservative Republican governor of Kentucky, lost it a few days ago. Thousands of his state’s teachers had walked off their jobs, forcing many schools to close for a day, to protest his opposition to increased education funding. And Bevin lashed out with a bizarre accusation: “I guarantee you somewhere in Kentucky today a child was sexually assaulted that was left at home because there was nobody there to watch them.” He later apologized. But his hysterical outburst had deep roots: At the state and local levels, the conservative obsession with tax cuts has forced the G.O.P. into...

    Paul Krugman, one of the sitting emperors among our media elite, and who is both a New York Times columnist and Nobel Prize winner, decided to use his verified Twitter account over the weekend to falsely hold President Trump responsible for a horrible outbreak of cholera in Puerto Rico. There is just one problem… There is no outbreak of cholera in Puerto Rico. Nevertheless, despite the fact he tweeted a blatantly false piece of fake news, Krugman has so far refused to delete the tweet. With its 14,000-plus re-tweets, Krugman’s lie remains published and viral: {..snip..}

    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.

    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...

    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...

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. As of yesterday it had marched all the way to another all time high of 22K.Paul Krugman, New York Times ‘economist’, was last seen praying for another market crash. 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...
