Dr. Charles Krauthammer

Dr. Krauthammer is on Fox News . He is an M.D. and a lawyer and is paralyzed from the neck down. A friend went to hear Charles Krauthammer. He listened with 25 others in a closed room. What he says here, is NOT 2nd-hand but 1st. The ramifications are staggering for us, our children and their children.

Last Monday was a profound evening, Dr Charles Krauthammer spoke to the Center for the American Experiment. He is a brilliant intellectual, seasoned & articulate. He is forthright and careful in his analysis, and never resorts to emotions or personal insults. He is NOT a fear monger nor an extremist in his comments and views . He is a fiscal conservative, and has received a Pulitzer Prize for writing. He is a frequent contributor to Fox News and writes weekly for the Washington Post.
The entire room was held spellbound during his talk. I have summarized his comments, as we are living in uncharted waters economically and internationally. Even 2 Dems at my table agreed with everything he said! If you feel like forwarding this to those who are open minded and have not drunk the Kool-Aid, feel free.
Summary of his comments:

1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual, charming individual. He is not to be underestimated. He is a cool customer who doesn't show his emotions. It's very hard to know what's behind the mask.The taking down of the Clinton dynasty was an amazing accomplishment. The Clintons still do not understand what hit them. Obama was in the perfect place at the perfect time.

2. Obama has political skills comparable to Reagan and Clinton . He has a way of making you think he's on your side, agreeing with your position, while doing the opposite. Pay no attention to what he SAYS; rather, watch what he DOES!

3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to Washington to make something out of himself, but rather to change everything, including dismantling capitalism. He can't be straightforward on his ambitions, as the public would not go along.
He has a heavy hand, and wants to level the playing field with income redistribution and punishment to the achievers of society. He would like to model the USA to Great Britain or Canada .

4. His three main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, and NATIONAL HEALTHCARE by the Federal government. He doesn't care about the auto or financial services industries, but got them as an early bonus. The cap and trade will add costs to everything and stifle growth. Paying for FREE college education is his goal. Most scary is his healthcare program, because if you make it FREE and add 46,000,000 people to a Medicare-type single-payer system, the costs will go through the roof. The only way to control costs is with massive RATIONING of services, like in Canada . God forbid!

5. He has surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. No one around him has ever even run a candy store. But they are going to try and run the auto, financial, banking and other industries. This obviously can't work in the long run. Obama is not a socialist; rather he's a far-left secular progressive bent on nothing short of revolution. He ran as a moderate, but will govern from the hard left. Again, watch what he does, not what he says.

6. Obama doesn't really see himself as President of the United States , but more as a ruler over the world. He sees himself above it all, trying to orchestrate & coordinate various countries and their agendas. He sees moral equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in Germany and England was a prime example of how he sees America , as an imperialist nation that has been arrogant, rather than a great noble nation that has at times made errors. This is the first President ever who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!

7. He is now handing out goodies. He hopes that the bill (and pain) will not come due until after he is reelected in 2012. He would like to blame all problems on Bush from the past, and hopefully his successor in the future. He has a huge ego, and Dr. Krauthammer believes he is a narcissist.

8. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong. Republicans are pining for another Reagan, but there will never be another like him. Krauthammer believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty & Bobby Jindahl (except for his terrible speech in February) are the future of the party. Newt Gingrich is brilliant, but has baggage. Sarah Palin is sincere and intelligent, but needs to really be seriously boning up on facts and info if she is to be a serious candidate in the future. We need to return to the party of lower taxes, smaller government, personal responsibility, strong national defense, and state's rights.

9. The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. We are spending trillions that we don't have. This could lead to hyperinflation, depression or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into prosperity. The media is giving Obama, Reid and Pelosi a pass because they love their agenda. But eventually the bill will come due and people will realize the huge bailouts didn't work, nor will the stimulus package.These were trillion-dollar payoffs to Obama's allies, unions and the Congress to placate the left, so he can get support for #4 above.

10. The election was over in mid-September when Lehman brothers failed, fear and panic swept in, we had an unpopular President, and the war was grinding on indefinitely without a clear outcome. The people are in pain, and the mantra of change caused people to act emotionally. Any Dem would have won this election; it was surprising it was as close as it was.

11 In 2012, if the unemployment rate is over 10%, Republicans will be swept back into power. If it's under 8%, the Dems continue to roll. If it's between 8-10%, it will be a dogfight. It will all be about the economy. I hope this gets you really thinking about what's
happening in Washington and Congress. There is a left-wing revolution going on, according to Krauthammer, and he encourages us to keep the faith and join the loyal resistance. The work will be hard, but we're right on most issues and can reclaim our country, before it's far too late.
Do yourself a long term favor, send this to all who will listen to an intelligent assessment of the big picture. All our futures and children's futures depend on our good understanding of what is really going on in DC, and our action pursuant to that understanding!! It really IS up to each of us to take individual action!! Start with educating your friends and neighbors!!!

    This man is my Hero. Did you know he was paralyzed in his FIRST year of Med School? Can you imagine finishing school in a wheelchair, and that was after a year of Physical Therapy. This man is a rock. What a terrific honor it would be for him to run this country.

    The worst diatribe I've ever had the misfortune of reading.

    Do you seriously believe that the health care system in the US is better than Canada?
  • Deere G... Michael 2014/10/10 01:41:07
    Sure I do.........Then why do so many from Foreign countries come here for treatment? Including Canadians.......
  • Toni 2010/04/01 12:25:55
    Dr. Charles Krauthammer is not paralized from the neck down, became a paraplegic in a diving accident while studying at Harvard Medical School. You need to get the facts right! Many of your statements are incorrect!
  • Deere G... Toni 2010/04/01 23:09:41
    Do your research........he is paralyzed from his neck down.........
  • Deere G... Toni 2012/09/09 01:58:03
    All of the references I have read, state he was paralyzed from the neck down......that's usually considered a quadraplegic.....

    This article is not all true.... many of the comments and phrases are added for impression sake. If you read some of Dr. Krauthammer's articles you will learn this. He has written some very interesting stuff. But this is not his actual writing.... simply another person's interpretation of it. Hmmm, that's called here-say?

    The man contradicts himself. He says that Obama wants to dismantle capitalism, and that he is not a socialist. Impossible, unless you argue that Obama wants to reinstate the absolute monarchy of Henry VIII.

    In addition, almost wherever you look in this diatribe, you will find factual errors. For instance, Krauthammer says, "[Obama] has surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types." Actually, Obama's choices have mostly been moderate Democrats, with a couple of Republicans, and only a few progressives, let alone "far-left academic types."

    For heaven's sake, he kept Gates, Bush's Secretary of Defense. Progressives groaned at his selection of Tim Geithner at Treasury, a man who had served under Bush as head of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Again, Obama is not trying to run the auto, health and banking industries. He is trying to bail them out. We might be better off if he had nationalized the banks, cleaned them up, and sold them back to investors, instead of injecting money into the banks with no regulation of what they did with it.

    I thought Krauthammer was smarter than this. In fact, I wonder whether your informant is accurate???
  • Deere G... Rufus W... 2009/10/19 14:14:11
    You and I are obviously from diametrically opposite philosophical and political spectrums....I listen to Dr. Krauthammers statements everytime I get a chance....Tim Geitner was part of a failed banking system prior to being picked as the treasury secretary. I have not seen Dr. Krauthammer say this man is not a socialists....I have heard him say Obama wants to look like a world leader, not just an american president....his socialistic views are the VERY reason and because he's back that he was given the Nobel Peace Prize....certainly not on his accomplisments...your statement about the radical academic types is false....look at all of his Czars he has picked......these people aren't just progressives and liberals, they're staunch radicals....I politely have to disagree with you....but hey, that's America....for now anyway.....as far as Bush.....I was totally against his bailout......these banks and companies should have been allowed to fail along with any other company that makes bad choices....the primary reason he wanted to bail these banks out was because, in many instances they were required by the government to give loans to people who couldn't afford them in the first place...and when they failed, it caused a Domino effect.....Nationalization and Socialism doesn't work and will never work.....Just one man's opinion and you have yours....

    Bravo, couldn't have expressed it better. Socialism does not work, just look around the globe and let's point to the country's that enjoy that form of political structure... are we flawed, sure we have problems but every time we have a problem, if the government will get off the necks of entrepreneurs then we seem to find a way, i.e., new inventions, new ways of meeting problems, creative ways to put people back to work. That does not happen with socialism, there is no growth or new development, there is only status quo, just look at Cuba and the way they have been living under Castro's socialist government... hear any good news from them? How many people have to suffer before we wake up and see that the only thing that can bail us out is the freedom to work, invent, think outside the box and be allowed to follow that thought. I see our current government totally against new thought, they are just using the tired format that all the other socialists governments are using..... Can't we just open our eyes and see we are being feed alot of corn, our government looks at us as if we are their property we are their cattle and we are to work for them and not ask questions, just work and give us your money... and yes let us legislate you out of a job while we are at it because we don't want too much wealth out there... Does that sound like the change that everyone wanted? Has anyone noticed how many new laws are in place in 2010.. let's talk about socialism and a police nation.
  • Deere G... dixiepa... 2010/01/04 01:56:12
    Very well articulated....Thank you.....America's colleges and Universities have very radical progressive professors......they brainwash our kids into thinking how bad this country is...they teach them against capitalism while their rich parents furnish them with a Beamer or an Audi......they've been spoon fed.....they think food comes from the grocery store, they have no idea of the amount of hard dirty work it takes to get it there.......Heartlan WHO?.....They could care less about the Heartland......all they want is a government and a society to give them free everything.....they want free food.....free housing........free education and YES free health care.......who pays for this?.....That hasn';t donned on them yet....wait until they begin working and watching their pay checks shrink from the hellacious amount of taxes they have to pay.......they simply want a government to give them everything and protect them from cradle to grave.......we have to speakup and speakout against such a government.......that my friend is not Socialism......that is Communism........and it must fail.......
  • Deere G... dixiepa... 2010/02/06 23:39:34
    Thank you...very well said......Thanks for your support.....
  • dixiepa... Rufus W... 2010/01/03 00:32:11
    Let me just say this about that.... I thought Obama was for change,, so where is the change when he has Gates, Clinton, Geithner,, as far as bailing out auto, health and banking,,,my question is WHY BAIL? If you were in school and failed a class and were passed on to the next level would you be able to acheive? I think you would have a very difficult time of it... so let things fail that are not working.. that way you work harder or you reinvent the wheel... Obama is no genius in business... although I give him applause in being truly inspired in grassroots bullying... yep, love to watch "The Man" in action.. has he ever run a business? Does he know how to read a spreadsheet? Can he actually make money without taxing, taking, stealing it? Something to ponder...
  • Deere G... dixiepa... 2010/01/03 05:52:32 (edited)
    I abhor watching him.........had much rather go down to the local used car lot.....at least they can lie to you without the need for a telepromptor........I have never seen anything impressive at all with Obama.....to some he's a great speaker and Orator........without his telepromptor he stutters.......he's lost.......yes he can deliver......but a great Orator is one that remembers the words like Ronald Reagan and Yes Bill Clinton.....I didn;t care for his sleezy politics and overall demeanor.......but he sure could look you in the eyes and lie to you with the best of'em....and Unfortunately the public believed him.......Obama is a radical socialist and he must go.......
  • GF Deere G... 2012/09/06 22:34:25
    an excellent intellect..............he isn't pretty..but I'd guess that you aren't either
  • Deere G... GF 2012/09/09 01:59:57
    I wouldn;'t argue with you there..lol

    Krauthammer is a reactionary ideologue and nothing he says should be taken seriously, unless you are a hopeless teabagging wingnut. He is Bush with a Brain.
  • Deere G... Dan Lourie 2009/10/17 14:25:00 (edited)
    At least the man has a brain and what a brain he has........you sound like the wingnut with a screw loose.....this man is extremely brilliant and knowledgeable......true, it's people like you that detest the truth.....this man speaks the truth.....a very highly sought after speaker, world wide.......a shame you liberals don't have a mind and a voice like Dr. Krauthammer, rather than viserol and biased socialist attacking morons.......with no reasoning.....Careful with that Koolaid....it's quite deadly......You have your opinion and the conservative voice has theirs.......I politely disagree with your assessment of Dr. Charles Krauthammer........ deadly opinion conservative voice politely disagree assessment dr charles krauthammer
  • dixiepa... Dan Lourie 2010/01/03 00:25:15
    Teabaggin wingnut? Bush with a brain.. so tell me,,, you great patriot what are your values? Do I agree with this article No.. in fact this article is to get people like you to think that Tea baggers are crazy... this article is a compilation of "talking points" I don't believe this meeting ever happened... Sadly though there are people like you who are so entrenched with their own ideology that "God Help Us" will we ever see the true "Light". God Bless You.
