Charles Krauthammer ’s Obama Comment Shocks Fox Panel Into Silence

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer brought momentarily silence, and not the kind that is out of respect, to a Fox News panel on “Special Report” after National Review columnist Jonah Goldberg said that Obama will not get a vote on the majority of new gun control legislation that he wants. “All he wants now is the money,” Krauthammer responded.
Several seconds of silence followed Krauthammer’s, “all he wants now is the money” comment. It was as if everyone at the table had been caught off guard, including host Chris Wallace.
Wallace finally recovered stating, “You don’t really mean that.”
“He’s lost on gun control,” Krauthammer responded.
When opposed by stating that he would get expanded background checks, Krauthammer indicated that it is “not going to make any difference.” He also went on to state that background checks were the “last item standing, the smallest item standing.” He said it’s the only one that Obama could possibly get, which I point out would be a huge blow to gun owners and the Second Amendment. Remember, Gun Owners of America and the National Rifle Association openly oppose expansion of background checks. However, as I wrote about here, West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin and the NRA have been engaged in private talks on a proposal to broaden background checks on purchasers of firearms.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Look, I agree with you that the nanny states is unsustainable and in the end it collapses. But what happened in Cyprus is not that the government, which is a nanny government in Cyprus, is insolvent; it’s that the banks are insolvent. And the banks had sort of grown to about 6 or 7 times the size of the economy, with a lot of influx of Russian money.

I really don’t understand this sort of hysteria over the idea of killing Americans who have taken up arms against the United States. Thousands of Americans, Southerners, died in Antietam without any due process.
When we stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-day, and Americans approached German bunkers,
If you take up arms against the United States you were a target because it was an act of war and you forfeited those rights.
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think the president invoking the massacre of children to essential say the Republicans need to accept his terms of surrender in the negotiations is not just a non-sequitur, I think it’s sacrilege.
And it’s of a piece with the whole tone of his news conference and this is the way he conducts them generally, which is he is excessively self-righteous. He talks about the other side of being unprincipled, not interested in the national interest, slaves of ideology which he says makes no sense. And as you mention, invested in opposing him to the point they are willing to let the country suffer.

RUSH: Republicans must walk away from any deal with Obama and the Democrats on the fiscal cliff… (“Rush believes that Obama doesn’t care about having a successful economy in his second term, that it’s all part of his push to transform this country into a welfare state because that’s what is fair in his eyes and that’s the only legacy he cares about.”)
Yesterday Charles Krauthammer said that Republicans have leverage right now with the president on this fiscal cliff deal because if tax rates go up on all Americans, Obama’s second term will begin in a recession as the higher tax rates will slow growth even more, and Krauthammer contends that Obama doesn’t want that.
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer on Tuesday said the White House used David Petraeus’s affair to get the CIA director to give testimony about the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that was in line with the administration’s position on the matter….
KRAUTHAMMER: I think the really shocking news today was that General Petraeus thought and hoped he could keep his job. He thought that it might and it would be kept secret, and that he could stay in his position. I think what that tells us is really important. It meant that he understood that the FBI obviously knew what was going on. He was hoping that those administration officials would not disclose what had happened, and therefore hoping that he would keep his job. And that meant that he understood that his job, his reputation, his legacy, his whole celebrated life was in the hands of the administration, and he expected they would protect him by keeping it quiet.

Editor’s Note: Dr. Andrew G. Hodges is a psychiatrist and forensic profiler who decoded O.J. Simpson’s “suicide note,” deciphered the JonBenet Ramsey ransom note and worked on the Natalee Holloway murder case.
He’s author of “The Obama Confession: Secret Fear, Secret Fury,” and uses a unique psycholinguistic technique he calls “ThoughtPrint Decoding” to “read between the lines” of people’s statements – called “the cutting-edge of forensic science” by expert investigators. His work previously was profiled here.
From my experience as a forensic profiler, I know when a guilty person starts to break. Law enforcement describes how guilty suspects show signs of cracking during an interrogation – and they push on those weaknesses. We can view Obama’s poor performance during the first presidential debate with Romney on Oct. 3 in a similar way. The debate – a symbolic interrogation – was the first time Obama had faced tough questions since 2008.
And he showed signs of cracking.
On his Wednesday radio program, conservative talker Mark Levin suggested he didn’t care much for the presidential debate analysis of either The Washington Post’s George Will or the Fox News Channel’s Charles Krauthammer.
“Why? How can this be said to be “immeasurably the best?” Levin asked. “I don’t think more lies have been told in 90 minutes in history of debates. Why? The constant interrupting by the moderator?
You know what it is? It’s all about the superficial. They wanted to see a fight. They got a fight. Well, good for them. I like to see fights, too.”
Coup d’états come in a variety of forms.
Some are violent with arrogant colonels pointing forty-fives at the temples of their predecessors and blowing their brains out; others are stealthy with the citizens awakening on an ordinary morning to find their whole world has changed yet not a drop of blood has been shed.
The Obama presidency is fond of issuing apologies for America on the world stage, but very rarely makes them at home to Americans. White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer has just issued one to Washington Post columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer,
who last week wrote an op-ed berating the Obama administration for removing a bust of Sir Winston Churchill from the Oval Office when it came to power. Pfeiffer had issued a stinging attack on Krauthammer, alleging that his Churchill bust reference was “100 percent false.”
Nationally syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer has never been one to mince words when discussing the president’s ever-growing litany of foreign policy blunders. And, apparently, he has no intentions of stopping now. In fact, during a recent
panel discussion on Special Report With Bret Baier, he seems to have taken his public criticisms of the president to a whole new level, essentially saying no one who is pro-Israel would re-elect Barack Obama unless they’ve “been in a coma for three and a half years.” Via Fox News:
Lately, there’s been a rumor swirling around about the current location of the bust of Winston Churchill. Some have claimed that President Obama removed the bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office and sent it back to the British Embassy.
Why Roberts did it

Obamacare is now essentially upheld. There’s only one way it can be overturned. The same way it was passed — elect a new president and a new Congress. That’s undoubtedly what Roberts is telling the nation: Your job, not mine. I won’t make it easy for you.
It is one thing to overturn ObamaCare should we be fortunate enough to A) Have an election (yeah, you heard me), B) Get a GOP President, C) Get a CONSERVATIVE House that will hold Boehner accountable as Speaker to not cave as he did on the budget ceiling debate, and D) get at least 51 votes in the Senate.
“Small government people” to change their minds on former Governor
Judge Andrew Napolitano told Fox News that small government libertarians who have so far refused to throw their support behind Mitt Romney will now do so as a result of yesterday’s Supreme Court decision to uphold Obamacare.
……….Later in the day, however, the pundit elites started to furrow their brows and dust off their elbow patches — and proceeded to try to convince us rubes that we had overreacted. They treated us to all kinds of contorted rationalizations and justifications full of pseudo-intellectual gobbledygook.
Something peculiar happens to people who cherish their liberty when machines effect its abridgement: They cease caring. In London, where almost 8,000 closed-circuit television camerasspy on the population without rest or interruption, the people appear to be wholly unperturbed.
Even an advertising campaign for the surveillance campaign with the tagline “Secure beneath the watchful eyes” elicited little complaint in the land of Orwell, outside of advocates professionally obliged to be vexed by such things. But it did not escape everyone. In recent years, “One Nation Under CCTV” has become a popular piece of Britishprotest graffiti.
……The executive branch of government cannot make law. It cannot change law. Its sole responsibility is to enforce law.This is hardly the first time the Obama administration has done the opposite.When the administration announced its decision not to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, signed by Bill Clintona few years ago, he demonstrated his willingness to defy his oath of office. And that’s just what he has done again.
On Friday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said that the president’s shift on enforcing immigrations laws and granting certain privileges among illegal immigrants is “out-and-out lawlessness.”
Darrin McBreen talks to rosalind peterson of california sky watch about the deadly consequences of the government using military unmanned drones here in america.
On Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Tuesday, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer called former President Bill Clinton a “double agent,” saying that Clinton is not doing President Barack Obama any favors.
As Charles Krauthammer said last night on Fox News, “In Wisconsin, Obama literally mailed it in.” Actually, Obama tweeted it in.
Though public sector unions throughout the country broke their backs and piggy banks to win him the presidency in 2008, ever the calculating politician willing to throw his supporters under that over-crowded bus, Obama refused to show up and rally for the Wisconsin rank-and-file for fear a loss might give him a bad news cycle or two.

America is not a battlefield, and its citizens are not “insurgents in need of vanquishing,” argues a civil rights attorney who is urging the governor of Virginia to move forward carefully in the state’s use of the remote-controlled aerial vehicles.
“We can understand why Obama is doing this,” syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said about the president’s ‘kill list.’ “Why they clearly leaked this to the press. They want obama to look tough, hawkish and part of that is what is happening around the world.
You look at massacres in Syria, he is standing by. You look at negotiations with Iran over it nukes, they’re going nowhere. There is a collapse in Baghdad. Look at the way that the Russians are treating the United States. Putin dissing Obama personally by not showing up at the G8 summit or the NATO summit as a kind of way to slap Obama in the face and he does this without any reaction.”
Following columnist Charles Krauthammer’s observation that the first person to shoot down a surveillance drone on U.S. soil will be a “folk hero,” gun enthusiasts in Texas have done precisely that as a protest against the use of spy drones on the American people.
Using consumer drones as target practice, Alex Jones and the Steiner brothers tested out the best way to bring down the drones on the 10,000 acre Steiner ranch as part of filming for Brothers in Arms, a new show which focuses on firearms and the second amendment.
With spy drones now commercially available for less than $1,000 dollars that are barely any different from the ones being used by police departments to spy on the public, Jones and the Steiners made short work of the devices during filming.
Pressure is mounting to normalize the use of drones in the United States.
“Don’t drone, me, bro!”—that’s one way to sum up Charles Krauthammer’s heated reaction to last week’s news that the Federal Aviation Administration had loosened restrictions on local police departments’ use of surveillance Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.

(“The feds predict that they will dispatch or authorize about 30,000 of these unmanned aerial vehicles across America…/The government is out of control.”) Is There a Drone In Your Backyard? By Judge Andrew Napolitano
Earlier this week, the federal government announced that the Air Force might be dispatching drones to a backyard near you. The stated purpose of these spies in the sky is to assist local police to find missing persons or kidnap victims, or to chase bad guys.
If the drone operator sees you doing anything of interest (Is your fertilizer for the roses or to fuel a bomb? Is that Sudafed for your cold or your meth habit? Are you smoking in front of your kids?), the feds say they may take a picture of you and keep it. The feds predict that they will dispatch or authorize about 30,000 of these unmanned aerial vehicles across America in the next 10 years. Meanwhile, more than 300 local and state police departments are awaiting federal permission to use the drones they already have purchased — usually with federal stimulus funds.
The government is out of control.

The entire Obama campaign is a slice and dice operation, pandering to one group after another, particularly those that elected Obama in 2008 – blacks, Hispanics, women, young people – and for whom the thrill is now gone.
What to do? Try fear. Create division, stir resentment, by whatever means necessary – bogus court challenges, dead-end Senate bills and a forest of straw men.

“Negative campaigns can work, and we’re getting a taste of it right now. I think Romney’s strategy should be to embrace that negativity. Just go for it and point out — go back to it and point out how it’s a sign of scurrilousness and hypocrisy,” Krauthammer said on FOX News‘ “O’Reilly Factor.”
“Look at the mean that Democrats have put out from top to bottom. Republicans, Romney, the war on women, a concocted idea. War on immigrants, we hear from that one. War on blacks. And It’s also class warfare, the war on the middle class. You know, comforting the rich and making sure they don’t pay their fair share,” Charles Krauthammer said tonight.
He has a solid, unshakeable base. His poll numbers are rising, not sinking. He hasn’t had to go negative. He hasn’t had to deliver a speech to get past his newsletter-induced Reverend Wright moment.Oh, and one other thing: he’s in this race ’til the finish line.
His name is Ron Paul, and you have the establishment to thank for his shocking march from the margins to something almost mainstream.In retrospect, at least, there’s really nothing shocking about it. At every step, he has been boosted up and pushed forward by the horrendous failure of the establishment to remove the real-life conditions that heighten his appeal.
Some of these failings, and their great power, have begun to inspire pieces of commentary unthinkable even two years ago.Says Charles Krauthammer of his position in the GOP: “regardless of my feelings or yours, the plain fact is that Paul is nurturing his movement toward visibility and legitimacy.
”Says Mark Steyn of his foreign policy: “deploring it is an inadequate response to a faction that is likely to emerge with the second-highest number of delegates at the GOP convention.”Says Glenn Greenwald of his embarrassment of the left:

Charles Krauthammer: The Pipeline Sellout – Obama puts politics over nation, again.

The Pipeline Sellout
Obama puts politics over nation, again.
In 2008, the slogan was “Yes We Can.” For 2011–12, it’s “We Can’t Wait.” What happened in between? Candidate Obama, the vessel into which myriad dreams were poured, met the reality of governance.
His near–$1 trillion stimulus begat a stagnant economy with 9 percent unemployment. His attempt at Wall Street reform left in place a still too-big-to-fail financial system as vulnerable today as when he came into office. His green-energy fantasies yielded Solyndra cronyism and a cap-and-trade regime not even a Democratic Congress would pass.
And now his signature achievement, Obamacare, is headed to the Supreme Court, where it could very well be struck down, just a week after its central element was overwhelmingly repudiated (2–1) by the good burghers of Ohio.
So what do you do when you say you can, but, it turns out, you can’t? Blame the other guy. Charge the Republicans with making governing impossible. Never mind that you had control of the Congress for two-thirds of your current tenure. It’s all the fault of Republican rejectionism.
Iraq is now lost, and it’s Obama’s fault

Barack Obama was a principled opponent of the Iraq War from its beginning. But when he became president in January 2009, he was handed a war that was won. The surge had succeeded. Al-Qaida in Iraq had been routed, driven to humiliating defeat by an Anbar Awakening of Sunnis fighting side-by-side with the infidel Americans. Even more remarkably, the Shiite militias had been taken down, with American backing, by the forces of Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. They crushed the Sadr militias from Basra to Sadr City.
