    Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer says he is making progress in his recovery from post-surgery complications and promised to his fans on Fox News that he will return. "Thanks to all for your cards, letters and good wishes. I am still recovering from major surgery 12 weeks ago. I have graduated from the ICU to an advanced rehab facility to regain my strength and stamina," Krauthammer said in a note shared by Fox News host Bret Baier on Tuesday. Krauthammer is a panelist on Baier's show, "Special Report."
  • Seven Lifelong Hard Core Republicans Who Consistently Bash Trump (Unpleasant but informative)

    Right now, the fate of the country lies in the hands of "classic" or "throwback" Republicans. The Grand Old Party currently controls all three branches of government, but its "big tent" happens to include a lunatic fringe of "low information voters" and bigots that delivered the presidency to Donald Trump. It's now up to the sane Republicans to try and wrestle power away from this subset, before the drive the entire country, and perhaps the world over the cliff. You already know how low Trump's approval numbers are, and you have heard him ripped to shreds already by the left,...
  • Charles Krauthammer: Let’s Face It, Trump’s Press Conference Today Was A Moral Disgrace

    If Trump is the Republican id, this exchange between Laura Ingraham and Krauthammer is a dialogue between the ego and superego. Ingraham, a nationalist, is all about the agenda. Was Trump’s presser today a good thing? Well, she says, he made some solid points — but it wasn’t useful. It didn’t advance the ball on policy. Krauthammer, a conservative, isn’t interested in that right now. Was it moral, he asks? Was it right?I wonder how many variations of this exchange are playing out within the administration tonight. Watch this quickie clip of Chuck Todd speculating that John Kelly’s going...

    The Hill ^ | August 3, 2017 | John Bowden
    Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer called the idea of impeaching President Trump "a catastrophic mistake" on Thursday, warning that there's no evidence Trump has committed a crime. "Collusion is unseemly but it ain't a crime," Krauthammer said in an interview with Fox News's Tucker Carlson. "You've got a political establishment, mostly Democratic but there are some Republicans, that would like to see him taken out of office." ... He stressed that he doesn't defend Trump, but only thinks that impeachment is a mistake. "Again, I think he's unfit," Krauthammer said, "but that's not the grounds for removal."

    Syndicated columnist and longtime Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer said that Donald Trump Jr.'s email revelation has changed the Russian collusion story for good. Krauthammer had remained skeptical about President Donald Trump's connections with Russia during the campaign, but in his latest column, he argued that "bungled collusion is still collusion." Krauthammer admitted that this is a major change from his previous attitude. "My view was: Collusion? I just don’t see it," he said. "But I’m open to empirical evidence. Show me." "The evidence is now shown. This is not hearsay, not fake news, not unsourced leaks," Krauthammer said. "This...

    National Review ^ | January 19, 2017 | Charles Krauthammer
    With no reason to suppress his more radical instincts any longer, the president embraced them on his way out the door. Barack Obama did not go out quietly. His unquiet final acts were overshadowed, in part by a successor who refused to come in quietly, and in part by Obama’s own endless, sentimental farewell tour. But there was nothing nostalgic or sentimental about Obama’s last acts. Two of them were simply shocking. Perhaps we should have known. At the 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, he joked about whether he had a bucket list: “Well, I have something that rhymes with...

    Fox News’ Charles Krauthammer ripped Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) on Monday for "his tremendously elaborate theory" around Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election, asking "Who gave him the tinfoil hat?" Krauthammer's comments came after Franken presented a lengthy hypothetical to former acting Attorney General Sally Yates around Russian connections to former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and the 18-day delay between when she made the White House aware of Flynn's apparent lie and when he was tendered his resignation....

    Charles Krauthammer on Thursday's Special Report said the American people's views on health care has evolved and thus, ironically, Obamacare wins the day. Krauthammer said health care is not being argued by Republicans in terms of the free market anymore; it is seen now as something the government ought to guarantee. CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think historically speaking we are at the midpoint. We had seven years of Obamacare, a change in expectations. And I would predict that in less than seven years, we will be in a single-payer system. I think that's the great irony of this. Obamacare failed...

    Conservative columnist and Fox News regular Charles Krauthammer is not a fan of the Affordable Care Act, but after House Republicans voted to partially repeal and replace it on Thursday, he said he thinks, ironically, ObamaCare won the day. "I think what conservatives and Republicans are beginning to understand is how the fundamental view of health care among the American people has changed," he told Tucker Carlson Thursday night. "ObamaCare is a disaster on the ground," he said, "and politically it ruined the Democrats. However, there's an irony and a hidden victory here: Over these past seven years, people's expectations...
  • With North Korea, We Do Have Cards to Play

    NRO ^ | Krauthammer
    The U.S. has ways to shut down Kim Jong-un’s nuclear-missile program short of war. The crisis with North Korea may appear trumped up. It’s not. Given that Pyongyang has had nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles for more than a decade, why the panic now? Because North Korea is headed for a nuclear breakout. The regime has openly declared that it is racing to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile that can reach the United States — and thus destroy an American city at a Kim Jong-un push of a button. The North Koreans are not bluffing. They’ve made significant progress with...
  • Krauthammer: US 'may be ready' for government-run universal healthcare

    In a column published Thursday night, Krauthammer said the GOP, having failed to "repeal and replace" Obamacare, could make the attempt again in the coming months, but said people may reject the attempt because they've been conditioned to see healthcare as an entitlement. "A broad national consensus is developing that health care is indeed a right," he wrote. "This is historically new. And it carries immense implications for the future. It suggests that we may be heading inexorably to a government-run, single-payer system. It's what Barack Obama once admitted he would have preferred but didn't think the country was ready...

    The Washington Post ^ | March 16, 2017 | Charles Krauthammer
    The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, but for governments it’s not that easy. Once something is given — say, health insurance coverage to 20 million Americans — you take it away at your peril. This is true for any government benefit, but especially for health care. There’s a reason not one Western democracy with some system of national health care has ever abolished it. The genius of the left is to keep enlarging the entitlement state by creating new giveaways that are politically impossible to repeal. For 20 years, Republicans railed against the New Deal. Yet, when they...

    Dear Dr. Charles Krauthammer:Today you likened President Trump to Vladimir Lenin, in that both used the expression “enemy of the people”, a grotesque smear. In order to get there you overlooked a huge distinction: Trump is telling the truth and Lenin was lying. Trump is defending himself from lies; Lenin was excusing himself from murders. You invalidate your analysis by omitting critical distinctions. By being nasty to Trump, you make yourself small. The entrenched establishment (of which you are a member), not only made the Trump Presidency possible, but also made it necessary. Why don’t you get on the constructive...
