Paul Krugman Uncovers a Right-Wing Conspiracy at Amazon.comCanada Free Press ^ | 10/22/14 | Arnold AhlertPosted on 10/22/2014, 3:12:59 PM by Sean_AnthonyThe Times columnist suggests a government crackdown for selling conservative books too quickly
Big-government aficionado Paul Krugman is calling for “public action to curb the power” of an entity he can’t quite bring himself to call a monopoly, even as he nonetheless compares its “abuses” to those of John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil company.
The subject of his ire? “Amazon.com, the giant online retailer, has too much power, and it uses that power in ways that hurt America,” Krugman whines.“Does Amazon really have robber-baron-type market power? When it comes to books, definitely,” Krugman insists. “Amazon overwhelmingly dominates online book sales, with a market share comparable to Standard Oil’s share of the refined oil market when it was broken up in 1911.
Even if you look at total book sales, Amazon is by far the largest player.”Excerpt Read more at canadafreepress.com …

The latest left-wing tactic to discredit conservative views is to dismiss the age and race of conservatives. \”Old white males\” and \”old white people\” are the left\’s latest favored negative epithets for those holding conservative views.
Secession, Five Years Later –….. “Obama conceded defeat in an indirect fashion after assumption of his lifelong appointment at the circus-like Constitutional Convention in the USSR in 2012. The massive government intervention and adoption of total central planning had predictable results: the world’s first 100% marginal tax rate on the top fifty percent of earners had only surprised the Premiere’s Economic Council but no one else with the results.”
…..Pacifica remained in force in the major cities like Portland and Seattle but had lost total control of the countryside in what had formerly been Washington and Oregon.
The Dakotas finally allied with the Midwestern Alliance.The American South had settled into an uneasy alliance with the United States Socialist Republic USSR which maintained their capital in the District of Columbia. Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire eventually broke away from the USSR to establish a system of Swiss-style cantons which the USSR battered for the first two years but eventually exhausted their ability to fight once the USSR economy collapsed into a miserable shambles that made Cuba look like 1990s Hong Kong.Premiere
Obama conceded defeat in an indirect fashion after assumption of his lifelong appointment at the circus-like Constitutional Convention in the USSR in 2012. The massive government intervention and adoption of total central planning had predictable results: the world’s first 100% marginal tax rate on the top fifty percent of earners had only surprised the Premiere’s Economic Council but no one else with the results. Tax receipts were down by 80% in the first year and disappeared in the second.
Paul Krugman, the chairman of the council, was quoted as saying “[that] greed would be eliminated and a new man would emerge from the bold experiment.” The only thing that emerged were the tens of miles of refugees attempting to flee the USSR in the first year after which the borders were sealed and all the government’s guns were trained inward to prevent the citizens from escaping the latest economic nostrum — permanent employment in a government job assigned to you whether you liked it or not.It is difficult to gauge how bad conditions are in the USSR. Like the Soviet Union during the twentieth century and Cuba afterwards, rumors were rampant.
It Is Possible To Make Obama Even Scarier Than He Already Is…

Some might take issue with the title relative to Obama, because with respect to his execution of Alinsky‘s vision he has been masterful at times, but there’s that, and then there’s not being smart enough to figure out how wrong liberalism/socialism/communism is.
Paul Krugman Proves Himself To Be a Fraud (Again) … “The purpose of all the over-the-top smears, as outlined in Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, the “bible” of Obammunists like Krugman, is to censor public criticism of healthcare socialism in particular and Big, Out-of-Control Government in general.” ~ by Thomas DiLorenzo
Recently by Thomas DiLorenzo: The Sales Tax Price-Fixing Conspiracy Act of 2013
A couple of years ago when I appeared as one of Ron Paul‘s witnesses (the first one, actually) during his House of Representatives hearings on the Fed, the Democrats got the biggest leftist on the committee to smear, libel, and slander me by repeating the smears, libels, and slanders about me (and virtually all other libertarians and conservatives) by the left-wing hate group known as the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The hate group’s typical line is this: 1) DiLorenzo wrote a book critical of Lincoln’s economic policies; 2) Therefore, he must want to bring back slavery. Since we now live in a nation of morons, the SPLC is able to raise millions of dollars in contributions from below-50-I.Q. liberals and leftists with such smears.
“Send us money and we will keep an eye on these people,” they say. (This is the same group of communistic crackpots who convinced Big Sister Janet Napolitano to publicly announce that people with Ron Paul bumper stickers on their cars may be considered potential terrorists by her Department of Fatherland Security).

This essay was originally published in Reassessing the Presidency: The Rise of the Executive State and the Decline of Freedom, edited by John V. Denson, pp. 667–696. An MP3 audio file of this article, read by Dr. Floy Lilley, is available for download.
In a recent survey, people of different nationalities were asked how proud they were to be American, German, French, etc., and whether or not they believed that the world would be a better place if other countries were just like their own. The countries ranking highest in terms of national pride were the United States and Austria. As interesting as it would be to consider the case of Austria, we shall concentrate here on the United States and the question of whether and to what extent the American claim can be justified.
In the following, we will identify three main sources of American national pride, the first two of which are justified sources of pride, while the third actually represents a fateful error. Finally, we will look at how this error might be repaired.
Paul Krugman Answers Paul Ryan on Debt Crisis: We Can Print Money… (“…Paul Krugman said Wednesday that that is not a legitimate worry because the U.S. government can always print money and weaken the buying power of the dollar. Weakening the dollar, Krugman said, would be a good thing.”)
(CNSNews.com) – Responding to House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan’s warning that if the federal government continues to run annual $1 trillion deficits we will eventually face a debt crisis, liberal economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman said Wednesday that that is not a legitimate worry because the U.S. government can always print money and weaken the buying power of the dollar.
Weakening the dollar, Krugman said, would be a good thing.
“The United States is a country that has its own currency–can’t run out of cash because we print the money. If you even try to think what would happen–suppose that investors get down on the United States. Even so, that would weaken the dollar, not send interest rates soaring, and that would be good. That would help our exports,” Krugman said on C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers.”
