– Tired of winning yet? Here is what fake NY Times columnist Paul Krugman – who the Times loves to bill as a “Nobel Prize-winning economist” – had to say about the victory of Donald J. Trump on Election Night: “If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.” Yesterday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average shot up 303 points to close over 21,000 for the first time ever. Obviously, Mr. Krugman’s Nobel Prize was exactly as well-deserved as the one given to Barack Obama for no good reason whatsoever in 2009.
– But not everyone is winning in Trump’s America. Bloomberg reports that Mexican Billionaire Carlos Slim – who famously overpaid for a 17% stake in the dying New York Times a few years back – has seen his net worth plummet from $68 billion to $51 billion since Election Day. D’oh!
– In today’s latest episode of Democrats eating their own, the far-far-far-leftwing of the Democratic Party – as opposed to the more moderate far-far-leftwing of the Party – is now out recruiting far-far-far-left candidates to oppose the 10 incumbent far-far-leftwingers who hold Senate seats in states that President Trump won in the 2016 election. It seems that being far-far-leftwing and voting only 98% of the time with the likes of Bernie Sanders just is not far-far-far-leftwing enough for the true radicals who actually fund the Democratic Party these days. This is of course great news for Republicans since it demonstrates conclusively that the people who run the Democratic Party have learned absolutely nothing at all from the utter devastation the Party has incurred at the polls over the last decade. Cool.
– “We fundamentally reject the assumption that Democrats can only win in red states by pandering to racists and big bankers,” said Claire Sandberg, a co-founder of the progressive political action committee We Will Replace You. “The way we beat Trumpism and take back Congress and statehouses is offering a coherent vision of our own to put people back to work. … We don’t need to completely compromise our own values and principles.” To be clear, the next time Ms. Sandberg or any of her compatriots offers any sort of “coherent vision” about how to put people back to work will be the day Hell officially freezes over.
– Bowdoin psychology professor Zachary Rothschild and University of Southern Mississippi psychology professor Lucas A. Keefer have produced a new study in which they assert the following: “When people publicly rage about perceived injustices that don’t affect them personally, we tend to assume this expression is rooted in altruism—a “disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others.” But… professing such third-party concern—what social scientists refer to as “moral outrage”—is often a function of self-interest, wielded to assuage feelings of personal culpability for societal harms or reinforce (to the self and others) one’s own status as a Very Good Person.”
Friends, I give you today’s American Progressive Facebook-posting nutjob.
Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.
That is all.
