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.......

    Your question can be answered merely by looking at cancer survival rates in Canada versus the USA. No country on earth surpasses cancer survival in the USA, and cancer is what usually gets you after you have survived heart disease.

    Canadians themselves prove it, especially when they arrive here in droves for cancer treatment. I personally know of a woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer in Canada and was told that she had to wait six months for treatment. She would have none of that and flew to Los Angeles to began treatment there. Interestingly enough, the two oncologists who treated her in LA were Canadian expatriates.

    You got it..........
  • Deere G... Michael 2015/05/01 00:47:23
    If not, then why are so many canadians coming here for their specialized treatments?

    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.....

    I don't know whom you are addressing, but Dr. Krauthammer is mostly paralyzed from the neck down. He does use one hand and drives his car with it as the car has been modified to enable its being driven by him.
  • Deere G... Howard ... 2015/05/01 00:49:45
    You are very correct my friend.......thank you..........

    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?
  • Howard ... Rosie T 2015/04/07 10:14:28

    Let's see if you can back that up. Who wrote Dr. Krauthammer's articles if not Dr. Krauthammer? And who really deserves his Pulitzer Prize?
  • Deere G... Howard ... 2015/05/01 00:50:17
    You got it sir......thank you.......

    Every person who has known him personally simply dismisses what you are saying. Watch him on Fox News where his answers are verbal and you will see that they are consistent with his writings.
  • Deere G... Howard ... 2015/05/01 00:50:50
    Again so very true.....thank you.........

    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....
