Ep. 121 We’ve Never Had a President Who…. Oh, Really?

12 January 2018     |     Tom Woods     |     4

Krugman hits a bunch of themes in this one, among them Alexander Hamilton, Russiagate, and the claim that no president ever acted on the desire to imprison his opponents. We restore a bit of perspective by glancing back at American history.

    Are we REALLY suppose to believe that Krugman knew nothing about the Alien & Sedition Acts of 1778, much less Lincoln throwing the entire Maryland legislature in jail rather than let them vote to leave the Union?

    I love you guys for constanly trying to correct the false narratives we are fed all the time by fake news and the Lame Stream Media,… but after a while it is more discouraging than hopeful. Why continue to bail out the ship of state with a bucket with a willfully placed hole in it?

    It’s not like the system broke because of some hidden flaw. It was broken deliberately by intelligent people who are granted near infinite power over the public,… only when the system is broken. Who wants something to work well if there is so little benefit for our betters, ie., Philosopher Kings. I guess us peons want a system that works well on it’s own,… but how long can we ever keep it? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/05d53fdffb9e51d33e28a3a9ca488c9eb1fd0f176389d8098a74c36c2f5dee23.jpg

    To continue with our running Tom & Bob lexicon, we can add “swooning couch” & “running victory laps” as classic Murphy phrases.

    Not from this episode, but synonymous with victory laps, I believe Tom has also previously used, “marching triumphantly around the room,” as a way of mocking people who are too satisfied with their own poorly thought out arguments.

    Krugman is an insufferable liar. He knows the history referred to full well. He is counting on his fans being ignorant of history and the Constitution, which indeed they are.

  • Phrederick

    You’d think this being largely about history that Tom would have taken more of a lead on this one since he’s a PhD historian and Bob is a economist who reads history in his spare time.
