    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...

    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.

This is a time of war and our priority is to win. We need the Republicans to come home.

    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".

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...

    By international and historical standards, political violence is exceedingly rare in the United States. The last serious outburst was 1968 with its bloody Democratic-convention riots. By that standard, 2016 is, as yet, tame. It may not remain so. The political thuggery that shut down a Donald Trump rally in Chicago last week may just be a harbinger. It would be nice, therefore, if we could think straight about cause and effect. The immediate conventional wisdom was to blame the disturbance on the “toxic environment” created by Trump. Nonsense. This was an act of deliberate sabotage created by a totalitarian left...

    The New Hampshire results have solidified the reigning cliche that the 2016 campaign is an anti-establishment revolt of both the left and the right. Largely overlooked, however, is the role played in setting the national mood by the seven-year legacy of the Obama presidency. Yes, you hear constant denunciations of institutions, parties, leaders, donors, lobbyists, influence peddlers. But the starting point of the bipartisan critique is the social, economic and geopolitical wreckage all around us. Bernie Sanders is careful never to blame President Obama directly, but his description of the America Obama leaves behind is devastating — a wasteland of...

Everyone except resident Obama, that is, who over the course of his administration has shown a willingness to reply instantly and passionately when police are accused of a shooting. When Fox News host Megyn Kelly asked about the latest Islamic lone wolf to stage an attack on American soil, the White House had two words to say, according to Kelly: "No comment." She then discussed the implications of the...

    If you're going to engage in a foreign policy capitulation, might as well do it when everyone is getting tanked and otherwise occupied. Say, New Year's Eve. Here's the story. In October, Iran test-fires a nuclear-capable ballistic missile in brazen violation of unanimous United Nations Security Council resolutions. President Barack Obama does nothing. One month later, Iran does it again. The administration makes a few gestures at the U.N. Then nothing. Then finally, on Dec. 30, the White House announces a few sanctions. They are weak, aimed mostly at individuals and designed essentially for show. Amazingly, even that proves too...

    here’s the cycle of poverty. There’s the cycle of violence. And then there’s the cycle of gun talk. It starts with a mass shooting.

The debate goes nowhere. The media move on. Until the next incident, when the cycle begins again. So with the Roseburg massacre in Oregon. Within hours, President Obama takes to the microphones to furiously denounce the National Rifle Association and its ilk for resisting “common-sense gun-safety laws.” His...

    Congress is finally having its say on the Iran deal. It will be an elaborate charade, however, because, having first gone to the U.N., President Obama has largely drained congressional action of relevance. At the Security Council, he pushed through a resolution ratifying the deal, thus officially committing the United States as a nation to its implementation — in advance of any congressional action. The resolution abolishes the entire legal framework, built over a decade, underlying the international sanctions against Iran. A few months from now, they will be gone. The script is already written: The International Atomic Energy Agency,...

    Ever since Donald Trump, the mercurial businessman, media personality, and presidential candidate, proposed his immigration policy, centering on the mass deportation of up to 11 million human beings, reaction among conservatives has been decidedly mixed. Ann Coulter, for whom illegal immigration is the alpha and the omega of public policy, exalted that Trump could perform abortions in the White House, and she would not care. But Charles Krauthammer, writing in the National Review on Thursday, and George Will, in his latest column published Saturday, provided reality checks.

Legal disclaimer: This column is for betting purposes only. What follows is analysis — scrubbed, as thoroughly as a Clinton server, of advocacy. (Unless I simply can’t resist.)

    During Thursday evening’s edition of Special Report on Fox News, Charles Krauthammer offered some backhanded praise of Donald Trump for leading a poll of presidential candidates people will not vote for. The real estate mogul leads the poll “with a deserved 59 percent,” the pundit told host Bret Baier. “[Trump] is going to say how sad it is that I’m saying these things,” Krauthammer continued. “But, you know, this is an open forum and we have free speech. He has a well-deserved and, I would say, an impressive 59 percent.”Uh-oh, you done poke the bear now!

    Columnist Charles Krauthammer argued that “Teflon Don” Donald Trump has show “he’s going to be a durable candidate” on Monday’s “O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel. Krauthammer said of Trump’s debate strategy, “I would think from his point of view, when you have the kind of lead he does, and the others have no particular incentive to attack you, because it might hurt the two of you, and leave the rest of the field unmolested, you’ve got a pretty good shot at just playing statesman and being quiet.

    Aborting infants and selling the pieces takes a toll on practitioners’ souls. “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.” — Barack Obama, address to Planned Parenthood, April 26, 2013 Planned Parenthood’s reaction to the release of a secretly recorded conversation about the sale of fetal body parts was highly revealing.
