  • 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

    03/31/2017 11:27:25 AM PDT · by ColdOne · 61 replies ^ | 3/31/17 | Eddie Scarry
    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...

  • Vanity: Charles Krauthammer smears Trump

    02/24/2017 8:15:57 PM PST · by AlienCrossfirePlayer · 73 replies
    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...

    National Review ^ | 11/25/16 | Charles Krauthammer
    For Democrats, the Road Back The GOP shows that it’s possible to win elections by appealing to all Americans. By Charles Krauthammer — November 25, 2016 One of the more salutary outcomes of the recent election is that Democrats are finally beginning to question the wisdom of basing their fortunes on identity politics. Having counted on the allegiance of African Americans, Hispanics, gays, unmarried women, and the young — and winning the popular vote all but once since 1992 — they were seduced into believing that they could ride this “coalition of the ascendant” into permanent command of the presidency....

    President-elect Donald Trump can and should withhold federal funds from U.S. cities that say they will guard illegal immigrants from deportation, political columnist Charles Krauthammer said Wednesday on Fox News' "Special Report." "It's something that should not be allowed," Krauthammer said. "Democrats have tolerated it. I think Trump would be within his rights to withhold funds, and he should, and the Democrats are making a big bet, and a mistaken one, if they decide that they are going to defy the federal government and what seems to be common sense: control your borders." Sanctuary cities — those that shield illegal...

    Democrats are “making a big bet and a mistaken one” by defying the federal government to protect their city’s “sanctuary” status, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said on Fox News’ “Special Report with Bret Baier” Wednesday. "Sanctuary cities were a scandal before Trump. It’s in defiance of federal authority,” Krauthammer said. President-elect Donald Trump pledged to withhold federal funds from cities that protect illegal immigrants from possible deportation—and Krauthammer said he’s well within his rights to do so. “The people who did this in the past were the racists in the south who defied federal authority on civil rights, so now it’s...

Trump insulted him, and Krauthammer never got over it!

    WASHINGTON — Rule of thumb for a presidential campaign where the two candidates have the highest unfavorable ratings in the history of polling: If you’re the center of attention, you’re losing. As Election Day approaches, Hillary Clinton cannot shake the spotlight. She is still ahead in the polls, but you know she’s slipping when she shows up at a Florida campaign event with a week to go accompanied by the former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado. * * * We are entering a period of unprecedented threat to the international order that has prevailed under American leadership since 1945. After eight...

    If anyone here is connected to the Trump Campaign, I am advising them to get a conference call set up for Trump to talk directly to people like Kristol, Krauthammer, Jay Cost, Joe Scarborough, etc. He can reassure them regarding the Supreme Court, Taxes, Obamacare, etc., and to ask directly for their support. This is a time of war and our priority is to win. We need the Republicans to come home.

I realize tonight that you are as dumb as the dumbest jackass. You teach me nothing. Obviously, Trump is a threat to you. Consider how great you'd be in our eyes, had you supported our guy.

My reaction yesterday to Trump's statement on Monday night that he was gonna withhold any action until the election results are actually in, this is where this unanimous, hysterical reaction all over Washington, New York, hell, all over the country, "Trump said he's not gonna accept the results the election! Trump's gonna pee on 200 years of American tradition." Remember the reaction to it. I was among the most prominent voices expressing incredulity and shock over this unanimous hysteria.

    Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer discussed with Megyn Kelly which candidate he thought won the debate. "Unfortunately, the big loser was the moderator," he said. Krauthammer said CBS News journalist Elaine Quijano "lost control very early" and allowed Tim Kaine and Mike Pence to talk over eachother. "Toward the end you were getting really good exchanges...and she would say 'we have to go on to another subject'--to which I would say 'why?'," Krauthammer said, adding that the discussion itself was more important than "hitting all the points".

"What Cruz delivered was the longest suicide note in American political history and this morning he added an addendum," said Krauthammer. Krauthammer weighed in on America's Newsroom this morning after Cruz spoke to Texas delegates (some of them angry), doubling down on his message from last night and going even further.

    Charles Krauthammer said the conclusion to draw from FBI Director James Comey's press statement on Hillary Clinton's emails was that the former secretary of state is a "non-criminal liar." He said that Clinton's "lying is obvious when you compare her statements with what Comey said." Krauthammer also said Comey's logic was "puzzling" and "completely wrong" in making "malicious intent" the standard by which to determine if Clinton committed a crime, instead of "gross negligence." "Negligence does not require intent. That's the whole point of having it in the statute," he said. Krauthammer said Comey "spent 14 minutes laying out a...
