  • Krauthammer Says Obama Idea of Legislating “Glorious Green Energy” is “Absurd” – Video

    Here is reaction from Charles Krauthammer to President Obama’s Oval Office Speech where he said the idea that Obama can legislate “glorious green energy” is “absurd.” Krauthammer said we just are not close to replacing petroleum with anything, and the idea Obama can just decree “green energy” is not facing reality.

    Here is video of the Fox All-Stars tonight discussing the day’s events related to the offer of a job made to Joe Sestak via Bill Clinton. Charles Krauthammer absolutely took the White House statement on the matter apart. He said: “I found the statement from the White House just unbelievable lawyerly, and I must say, deceptive.” Krauthammer pointed out that the statement says “efforts” were made in June and July of last year to determine if Sestak would be interested in appointive service. That would seem to mean more than one effort. Who made the other “efforts,” and what did...

    Here's my question: Why are we drilling in 5,000 feet of water in the first place? Many reasons, but this one goes unmentioned: Environmental chic has driven us out there. As production from the shallower Gulf of Mexico wells declines, we go deep (1,000 feet and more) and ultra deep (5,000 feet and more), in part because environmentalists have succeeded in rendering the Pacific and nearly all the Atlantic coast off-limits to oil production. (President Obama's tentative, selective opening of some Atlantic and offshore Alaska sites is now dead.) And of course, in the safest of all places, on land,...

    Here is video of Charles Krauthammer reacting to Attorney General Eric Holder's unwillingness to use the term "Radical Islam" to describe what incites terrorists to attack the United States. Krauthammer said it is absurd to not call the ideology behind the enemy what it is - "Radical Islam." In fact, he likened this politically-correct attitude displayed by Holder in a recent hearing to how absurd it would have been to never speak of "Communism" during the Cold War, or "Nazism" during World War II as the ideologies behind the enemy. Krauthammer could not be more right! But in the PC...

    Here is video of Charles Krauthammer saying that the United States is in danger of going the way of Greece - with all the economic turmoil they are experiencing. "From an American Perspective, that's the future. We now have a GDP deficit this year of over 10%, which is wildly out of control - 10% of our Gross Domestic Product. If we stay on course, the most optimistic estimates out of the CBO are that we are going to have a National Debt - a total accumulated debt in 10 years of about 100%, 90% of our GDP, in which...

    Charles Krauthammer warns viewers of Bill O’Reilly that the passage of ObamaCare will lead to the value-added tax, or VAT. The Europeans have it, in part to fund the national nanny states, and the US will need it to create the “river of revenue” that ObamaCare will require. Meanwhile, Krauthammer — a physician himself — also warns that the Obama administration doesn’t need a public option, as the insurance companies will become arms of the government, just like public utilities

    Human Events ^ | 03/26/2010 | Charles Krauthammer
    As the night follows the day, the VAT cometh. With the passage of Obamacare, creating a vast new middle-class entitlement, a national sales tax of the kind near-universal in Europe is inevitable. We are now $8 trillion in debt. The Congressional Budget Office projects that another $12 trillion will be added over the next decade. Obamacare, when stripped of its budgetary gimmicks -- the unfunded $200 billion-plus doctor fix, the double counting of Medicare cuts, the 10-6 sleight-of-hand (counting 10 years of revenue and only 6 years of outflows) -- is at minimum a $2 trillion new entitlement. It will...

    Remember when it was the liberals that considered the potential of a value added tax or VAT in the United States? More and more, conservatives are starting to express their concerns about it becoming a reality. The VAT is a consumption tax that is placed on a product whenever value is added at a stage of production and at final sale. For example, as explains, "When a television is built by a company in Europe the manufacturer is charged a VAT on all of the supplies they purchase for producing the television. Once the television reaches the shelf, the...

    Here is video / audio of Charles Krauthammer on the "Special Report" Panel last night where he said the GOP should show up for the Feb. 25 Health Care Meeting with President Obama and designate a single spokesperson to go back and forth with Obama. Krauthammer said it should be GOP Rep. Paul Ryan, because he knows Health Care "up and down." Krauthammer said Ryan "is your David - Give him a slingshot and you send him up there." Krauthammer shared his view from his car by phone where he was stuck in a Washington D.C. traffic jam because of...

    "I am not an ideologue," protested President Obama at a gathering with Republican House members last week. Perhaps, but he does have a tenacious commitment to a set of political convictions. Compare his 2010 State of the Union with his first address to Congress a year earlier. In 2009, after passing a $787 billion (now $862 billion) stimulus package, the largest spending bill in galactic history, he unveiled a manifesto for fundamentally restructuring the commanding heights of American society - health care, education and energy. A year later, after stunning Democratic setbacks in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts, Obama gave...

    Here is video of Charles Krauthammer on with Bill O'Reilly where he said one year after abolishing the Bush methods of interrogating terror detainees, the Obama Administration has not really made sure there is anything to take it's place. The Obama Administration created a "High Value Target Interrogation Group" to fill the vacuum, but one year later, Krauthammer says they are "still looking for office space," and are not functioning. He said they were not functioning when the attempted attack took place on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 on Christmas Day. Krauthammer said if you are going to "ostentatiously" replace what...

    Appearing on Frank Gaffney’s show on Secure Freedom Radio earlier today, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer delivered the ultimate smackdown of President Barack Obama. The conservative columnist proved he understands Obama completely. As I argued yesterday, conservatives are making a tragic mistake by mistaking the man for a pragmatist. He is not, he’s a leftist ideologue.

    Here is video of Fox News' Charles Krauthammer last night hammering President Obama for saying "almost nothing" about terrorism in his State of the Union Address. This despite the fact there have been three attacks, or attempted attacks in the United States in recent months - the Arkansas murder, the Ft. Hood massacre and the attack on the airliner." Krauthammer said Obama tries to silence critics of his policy decisions by saying they are questioning his patriotism, when actually critics are questioning his "judgment." Everyone on the panel, including Krauthammer, believes that the Obama Administration will be rebuffed in their...

He added that Obama "is not a hostage of the parties Left, he is a man of the Left."

    On President Obama’s “spending freeze”: It's not a hatchet. It's not a scalpel. It's a Q-tip. It's a fraud. This is a miniscule amount. It excludes Defense, Homeland Security, Veterans Affairs. It excludes all the entitlements, which are 60 percent of the budget. It excludes stimuli past and future — the two thirds of the near trillion-dollar stimulus that has not been spent. All of that is excluded. It excludes the $1 trillion that would end up being spent on health care if it were passed. What it is, is a $15 billion reduction in a year, 2011, in which...

    On Jan. 14, five days before the Massachusetts special election, President Obama was in full bring-it-on mode as he rallied House Democrats behind his health care reform. “If Republicans want to campaign against what we’ve done by standing up for the status quo and for insurance companies over American families and businesses, that is a fight I want to have.” The bravado lasted three days. When Obama campaigned in Boston on Jan. 17 for Obamacare supporter Martha Coakley, not once did he mention the health care bill. When your candidate is sinking, you don’t throw her a millstone. After Coakley’s...
