  • Krauthammer Is Dying With Dignity While Liberals Are Living With None

    Some people die with bravery, grace, and dignity while others live with none of those attributes.This truth was on full display Friday when Washington Post columnist and Fox News star Charles Krauthammer announced to the world what I’d heard in whispers for a couple of weeks – he was dying, he only has a few weeks left to live. The outpouring of love and admiration that followed was, no doubt, comforting for him and his family in this awful time.But, as has become all too common in the social media age, some liberals couldn’t let a day, or even an...

    Pulitzer Prize-winning author and commentator Charles Krauthammer is dying. Hed been battling cancer and seemed to have come out all right, but it took a turn. He released a letter to the media yesterday which was simple in its message, but heartbreaking to read. I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over. He thanked family and friends for their love and support and then addressed his colleagues, readers and viewers. I believe that the pursuit of truth and right ideas through honest debate and rigorous argument is a noble undertaking,...

    Charles Krauthammer, the beloved and brilliant Fox News Channel personality who gave up a pioneering career in psychiatry to become a Pulitzer Prize-winning political analyst, on Friday revealed the heartbreaking news that he is in the final stages of a losing battle with cancer. The 68-year-olds incisive takes on politics of the day have been missing from Fox News Channels Special Report for nearly a year as he battled an abdominal tumor and subsequent complications, but colleagues and viewers alike had held out hope that he would return to the evening show he helped establish as must-viewing.

  • Charles Krauthammer: U.S. Heading Down Conspiracy Rabbit Hole (2017)

    03/31/2018 6:05:29 AM PDT · by MNDude · 44 replies
    The other storyline is simply fantastical. Congressional Republicans have uniformly run away from Trump's Obama-wiretap accusation. Clapper denies it. FBI Director James Comey denies it. Not a single member of Trump's own administration is willing to say it's true. Loopier still is to demand that Congress find the truth when the president could just pick up the phone and instruct the FBI, CIA and DNI to declare on the record whether this ever occurred. And if there really was an October 2016 FISA court order to wiretap Trump, the president could unilaterally declassify the information yesterday. The bugging story is...

    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....

    The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, but for governments its 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. Theres 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...

    Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., was labeled by Charles Krauthammer on Friday as the pundits leading pick to be the running mate of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The Washington Post, citing unnamed sources, said Corker will be meeting Monday with Trump at Trump Tower in New York City Krauthammer used a hypothetical pot of $100 in casino chips to make his point, putting $25 on Corker, $20 on former Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., $20 on Ohio Gov. John Kasich, $10 on former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and $5 on Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint. The rest went to the field,...

    Charles Krauthammer told viewers on Special Report with Bret Baier that Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is really extremely defensive when it comes to his support in New York. He doesnt even have a chance to talk about his issues in New York, Krauthammer, a syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor, added. Hes got to defend the New York values stuff, which was an enormous mistake. It didnt really help him in Iowa. He couldve done it without that phrase. And now how does he defend it? He cant. And I think because he is talking only about that, I...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 4/8/2016 | EDDIE SCARRY
    Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer predicted that the Republican Party would most certainly collapse if Donald Trump is denied a presidential nomination at the convention in July. In his latest column for the Washington Post, Krauthammer said if Trump does not lock up the nomination before the convention he has the most delegates but needs a majority it is possible the party will coalesce around an alternative and the billionaire's supporters will walk away, leaving the party in shambles. "And if Trump loses out, a split is guaranteed," wrote Krauthammer. "In Trump's mind, he is a winner. Always. If...

    Charles Krauthammer finally admitted tonight that he was wrong when he laughing at Donald Trump six months ago. The FOX News pundit has been one of Donald Trumps leading GOP Beltway detractors. Krauthammer: Hes demonstrated the ability to bring out people who arent regular voters, arent regular Republicans, and he could alter the map. I think Democrats who thought six months ago, who thought he was a joke, I thought he was a joke for a nominee for the Republican Party, and a lot of people thought as well. We were all wrong. So he has a capacity to appeal....

    Washington Post ^ | March 17, 2016 | Charles Krauthammer
    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...

    As part of my ongoing Trump campaign biography, I thought it would be interesting to see what so-called "conservatives" had to say about Sarah Palin in 2008. Turns out, it's not much different than what they have said about Trump (i.e., hatred): Remember how the so-called conservative media treated Sarah Palin in 2008? Charles Krauthammer wrote, with Palin, the case against Obama evaporates. Palins choice, he claimed, negates the theme of readiness to assume the office. Referring to her as a wing-nut candidate, Krathammer wrote of Palins inevitable liabilities due to the fact that any unvetted neophyte has issues, such...

    Conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer said Wednesday that if either Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz lose their home state to Donald Trump it would almost certainly spell the end of their campaigns. "If either loses their home state to Trump, they have to pull out," Krauthammer said on the Fox News Channel. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Rubio currently trails Trump in Florida and a new poll released Wednesday indicated Cruz was in a statistical dead heat with the billionaire in Texas. Krauthammer advised both Rubio and Cruz to find an "attack line" that can be deployed on Trump to freeze his momentum....
