Paul Krugman's Eichenwaldian moment

It must have been the Qanons who are surfing for illegal images on Paul Krugman's computer. What other explanation could there possibly be?
Well, I’m on the phone with my computer security service, and as I understand it someone compromised my IP address and is using it to download child pornography. I might just be a random target. But this could be an attempt to Qanon me.

It’s an ugly world out there.
Ugly indeed. I had no idea that "Krugman" might be spelled with a silent "stein" on the end. Quick, look, Nobel Prize!

I wonder what he expects the Twitter Police to do about it?  Anyhow, one must admit that Paul Krugman’s intriguing combination of an OK Boomer grasp of technology with an Eichenwaldian defense is at least as credible as his economic theories.

From SocialGalactic:

"What do you call the emotion that is 50% wanting to laugh and 50% wishing to impose the death penalty?"

Ausführenfreude.

I remember seeing an article from his MIT days about Germany as the new sick man of Europe. It seemed solid and well written to me as a layperson. It was obvious when Krugman took the bargain.

Hahahaha

Whats even better is that Trump junior retweeted with a thumbs up and a wink emoji.

I don't want to be anti semitic or anything, but Im opposed to pedophiles.

If he wasn't who he was I might even believe him since this is what Jews do to dissidents all the time. In England people arrested for (((hate speech))) will often have a token few images of child porn put on their computer or just "declared" to discredit and disqualify by the Jews in the Metropolitan or even Shomrim.

But since it's Krugman we're probably talking terrabytes of material.

And Trump Junior confirming means Krugman 'the internet will have no more eocnomic impact then the fax machine' is in a lot of trouble.

But he'll be fine. I wonder if it was on the computers at the New York Times. Aren't they all star trek fans?

A very plausible story. I, for one, believe Krugman completely.

“The growth of the Internet will slow drastically, as the flaw in ‘Metcalfe’s law’—which states that the number of potential connections in a network is proportional to the square of the number of participants—becomes apparent: most people have nothing to say to each other! By 2005 or so, it will become clear that the Internet’s impact on the economy has been no greater than the fax machine’s.”

There was a guy who went to my church in Illinois. He was a goofy eccentric divorcee from Texas. Nice guy, but a little bit odd. One day he Emailed the entire congregation he was gay. Then a day later he emailed everyone that he had been hacked, and someone else sent that Email. Then a week later he moved back to Texas never to be seen again.

Krugman seems to be at Stage 2.

@8 In many online "alternate lifestyle" communities, that's what's known as a "shame eruption". That's when a deviant person -usually someone living/working in a conservative area,- decides that he can't hide who he is any longer and he mass e-mails the institution he works for to tell them all about what he's into. Alternatively, he can blurt it all out to his family during a family function. Then, he either tries to walk back what he said or he moves away. But the "being unable to hold it in" thing seems particular to liberals. I don't know of any conservatives who've ever felt the need to explosively jizz their beliefs all over their liberal families. Usually they'll just keep their unpopular positions and peccadillos to themselves.

Landing Krugman is prison will stimulate the entire economy. There is a job for the warden, many jobs for the guards, an enormous amounts of jobs for all the associated staff.

I remember reading a lot of his stuff from pkarchive.org decades ago. He is a big fan of The Foundation series from Isaac Asimov and he credited the "psycho-historians" as his inspiration for going into economics after first majoring in undergrad history.

He is also one of the biggest "public intellectual" frauds on the planet. Nothing would please me more than him getting pinched on child pornography charges. He would not be the first in a long line of Keynesians...including Keynes himself.

Read Krugman for the first time when I was seventeen. Hadn't studied anything economics yet but figured his claims of lack of demand being the reason for the last crash as BS because of my experience carrying for young family members. There is no limit to a two year old's demands, more so with twins. I'd thought that Keynesians had no experience with small children to believe their own claims, now it's apparent they have a lot of evil experience, from Keynes to Krugman.

Crew wrote:Is it possible that all liberals are pedophiles?

Of course it is. And it dovetails with the theory I have been building since the 2000's.

ALL Liberalism, and liberal 'lite' conservatism, is about sex.They want power to enslave all others so that they can have sex with whoever they want. The Feminists want to force attractive men to sleep with fat hags. The Trannies want to force straight people to sleep with them. The Gays want homosexuality to be considered elite and popular so they more people will sleep with them. The Various racial grievance groups are tired of white men being the preferred people for white women to sleep with. Fat people want to force skinny sexy people to sleep with them by pretending they are not fat.

In the end, the entire coalition of the grievance is full of people who are desperate to be at the top of the sociosexual hierarchy without the willpower to do it the hard way. Or the sexually disturbed who want to force others to embrace their twisted corruptions.

EVERY 'progressive' notion is about sex in some way... from abortion on-demand to prevent their sexual games from being interrupted by an inconvenient baby, to black women demanding more 'representation' and 'empowerment' in Hollywood, meaning that they think more exposure to black woman will somehow make more people see your average black Rachel Jeantel Hambeast as Whitney Houston. From publicly-funded cosmetic surgery to their false care for the environment (Apparently Women think that loving animals and trees is supposed to make them more attractive after they have murdered a half dozen babies?)from gay 'acceptance' (Having a gay best friend is the ultimate SMV status symbol in New York) to marching with your 'sisters' (women that think pretending to simulate the kinds of friendships that men naturally create with each other is supposed to make them more desirable)

In the end, they are all convinced that just 'one more social change' is all it's going to take for the world to change and they suddenly become sexually desirable... and each time the world changes and the miracle doesn't happen, they go a little crazier, a little more outrageous, for the NEXT change that this time is CERTAIN to make them the pinnacle of sexual desirability.

Blogger Dire Badger January 09, 2020 1:27 AM  

I think that's why they hate Trump so much. Because Hillary was the symbol... the ultimate change that would FINALLY make the diverse the most sexually desirable beings in the universe. THIS WAS THE FINAL METAMORPHOSIS! and that orange bastard RUINED it... and the only way that the next change, the next paradigm shift that will finally make them all the most desirable beings in the universe again, is if ORANGE MAN GOES AWAY!
In fact, he threatens to backslide all the work they have done to bring about the sexual apocalypse, that all the things right wingers care about... truth, honesty, success, the future... It's not that they are lies, they just don't MATTER! Can't these right-wing jerks realize that reality is MEANINGLESS next to the next change that will finally make Liberals the ultimate gods of sex in the world?

There's a big difference between the Chicago school and the neo-Keynesian school. Krugman is a big government Keynesian. Interestingly enough, both schools agree on free trade, despite radical differences on regulation, government spending, taxation, deficit spending etc.

The difficulty in doing satire these days is that the lefty Satanists have made even the truly bizarre into commonplace occurrence.

Reminds me of a joke I translated out of a Russian joke book.

A biologist, an engineer, and a communist party member are arguing about whose profession is the oldest.

The biologist says that obviously biology is the oldest profession, as before God created the creatures in the sea and on land, the earth was barren and void.

The engineer replies, that's true, but first, God created the heavens and the earth out of the chaos.

The communist party member then interjects: "And who do you think created the chaos in the first place?"
