  • Sanders and Trump: Magic sells

    Washington Post ^ | 11 Feb 16 | Charles Krauthammer
    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...

    Almost everyone had something to say about Thursday's incident in which a gunman who said he supported ISIS attacked Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnett with a gun, shooting him 17 times. 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...

    I appreciate being held in "(otherwise) ...considerable esteem" by Charles Krauthammer. Not only is the feeling mutual; from my end, I would even omit the "otherwise." That said, I am dismayed by his specious response to my legal analysis of Donald Trump's proposed moratorium on Muslim immigration to the United States. I am personally disappointed that Charles has distorted my position, portraying me as a Trump apologist. But that is almost beside the point. His rebuke is counterproductive to the defense of our national security - about which Krauthammer and I both care deeply - because it makes solving a...

"I give him points for courage and candor," Krauthammer said. "I mean his sort of isolationism is not a popular strain, but he went with it." Nonetheless, "I don't think anybody really changes his or her fortunes."Instead, he predicted how things will shake out from here: "If you look at the stage, you saw the two wings, you had Rand Paul and you had Kasich, who you could just see...

    heres the cycle of poverty. Theres the cycle of violence. And then theres the cycle of gun talk. It starts with a mass shooting. Gun-control advocates blame the deaths on gun-control opponents, who argue, in turn, that none of the proposed restrictions would have had any effect on the incident in question. 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. Krauthammer wondered what the practical political effects would be of reenacting the Trail...

Thats why it was particularly interesting to hear Krauthammers use of the word pathological when describing President Obamas sneering attack on Scott Walker in connection with the governors comments about the Iran nuclear agreement. The Merriam-Webster online dictionary defines pathological as extreme in a way that is not normal or that shows an illness or mental problem. Video at source:

    Krauthammers Take: Hillary Is Not Trying to Clear the Air, Because She Cant March 5, 2015 Why doesnt Hillary Clinton do a no-holds-barred, Chris Christie-style press conference to clear the air over her secret email accounts? Because the answers to the questions, if remotely honest, says Charles Krauthammer, are self-indicting. The reason that she cant do a Christie, and do a two-hour press conference, where she clears the air, Krauthammer explained on Thursdays Special Report, is two reasons. Number one, shes a Clinton, and what the Clintons do is never clear the air; they spend the first month or...

    Krauthammer’s Take: Iranian Negotiations Are ‘Simply Catastrophic’ On Tuesday’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer said the United States’ ongoing negotiations with Iran are misguided and make President Obama’s other foreign policy blunders look favorable by comparison. “This [deal] will mean a lifting of the sanctions, so Iran will be with a very strong economy, undeterred, nothing in any way holding it back; it’s simply catastrophic,” Krauthammer said. “It is an unbelievably bad deal. It makes the Cuba deal look like a really good bargain.” Krauthammer explained that he thinks the United States is negotiating from a place of weakness, which...

    On Fridays broadcast of Hugh Hewitts radio program, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer reacted to remarks made by President Barack Obama at Thursdays National Prayer Breakfast. Krauthammer criticized Obama primarily for invoking the Inquisition and the Crusades on the heels of the ISIS video showing the burning of a Jordanian pilot. I actually think he was doing it, hell trot it out when he does the Iran deal, but the more immediate thing was simply to dismiss the barbarism that we saw with the immolation of the Jordanian pilot, and to make everybody believe that this is really nothing out...

    Charles Krauthammer tonight slammed President Barack Obamas remarks today at the National Prayer Breakfast, where Obama compared ISIS attacks to the violence committed by Christians in the Crusades. Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ," Obama said.

    While Irans march toward a nuclear bomb has provoked a major clash between the White House and Congress, Irans march toward conventional domination of the Arab world has been largely overlooked. In Washington, that is. The Arabs have noticed. And the pro-American ones, the Gulf Arabs in particular, are deeply worried. This week, Iranian-backed Houthi rebels seized control of the Yemeni government, heretofore pro-American. In September, they overran Sanaa, the capital. On Tuesday, they seized the presidential palace. On Thursday, they forced the president to resign. The Houthi have local religious grievances, being Shiites in a majority Sunni land. But...

    On Sunday, at the great Paris rally, the whole world was Charlie. By Tuesday, the veneer of solidarity was exposed as tissue thin. It began dissolving as soon as the real, remaining Charlie Hebdo put out its post-massacre issue featuring a Muhammad cover that, as the New York Times put it, reignited the debate pitting free speech against religious sensitivities. Again? Already? Had not 4 million marchers and 44 foreign leaders just turned out on the streets of France to declare No to intimidation, and pledging solidarity, indeed identification (Je suis Charlie) with a satirical weekly specializing in the most...

    The lone wolf is the new nightmare, dramatized and amplified this week by the hostage-taking attack in Sydney. But there are two kinds of lone wolves the crazy and the evil and the distinction is important. The real terrorists are rational. Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter, had been functioning as an Army doctor for years. Psychotics cannot carry that off. Hasan even had a business card listing his occupation as SoA (Soldier of Allah). He then went out and, shouting Allahu Akbar, shot dead 13 people, 12 of them fellow soldiers. To this day, Hasan speaks...
