America Lost Its Greatest Political
Commentator in Krauthammer

PJ Media, by Roger L. Simon

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 6/22/2018 4:38:06 AM

When you call someone the greatest at anything, you risk being accused of foolishness or worse; but it´s safe to say that Charles Krauthammer, who passed away Thursday, was the greatest political commentator of our time. I write this not just because he won the Pulitzer for commentary as a conservative, a near Herculean task. And I say this even though I sometimes disagreed with him, especially lately. Whom do we not disagree with at one time or another -- even ourselves? I write this because Krauthammer was the gold standard of columnists, the most incisive mind in political journalism augmented by

Comments:
Dr. Krauthammer famously said we must live the life we are given in the best way possible. He certainly did so. I will miss him.

In honor of Charles Krauthammer´s background in both psychiatry and political commentary I offer this: There are no better examples of cognitive dissonance than in those Trump supporters who lament his loss yet still must acknowledge that he compared Trump to a rodeo clown.

Charles often said things that I didnt like or want to hear. It´s not that he was wrong, its that the answers were unsatifying.

He was one of those few intelectually honest commentators

The Left wing media are saying nothing about Charles history, they are referring to him as someone who was against Trump.

A life of substance, an inspiration, a towering intellect, a rapier wit, a good family man and an all-around good guy. He will be missed. When I die, if anyone says 1000th of the good things about me that have been said about Charles Krauthammer, I will have lived a worthwhile life.

Have to agree with #6. He was not the Greatest Political Commentator is America. I can think of hundreds of others. Krauthammer said Trump was unfit to be President. Remember he was a speechwriter for Mondale. A Rino at best. Yes it´s sad he is gone but at times like this, people tend to overdo it.

I have a great deal of respect for Charles and his intellect; although, I disagreed with him on many, many matters. Because of the cards dealt him, he was very confined to DC which prevented him from truly understanding us Deplorables.

May he rest in peace!

Hmm. I respectfully disagree. I have agreed with Mr. Krauthammer many times, for a period, almost always.

Any observer who calls the many weak, RINO candidates in the 2016 Republican primaries ´the greatest bench of potential candidates ever arrayed´ (or words to that effect) and then calls Trump "this rodeo clown", is NOT an open minded, or fair minded observer. The President has done far more good for the country in 18 months, more truly conservative things, than all the "conservative" Presidents since Reagan put together.

I agree with many things that Mr. Krauthammer has written, MANY. But there are times when he is as full of beans as several other "conservative" commentators like George Will, Bill Kristol and Jonah Goldberg. All these gentlemen seem unable to see through their irrational hatred and recognize all the good that Trump has done. Sad for them.

I´m sorry for the physical suffering he had to endure - - but I have little respect for his "intellectual brilliance."

He was a rabid NeverTrumper - - which bespeaks very little for his intellectual insight.

Eternal rest in peace - - but I will not miss his blundering commentary.

I worked at Time magazine while Charles was writing there. The difference was, I was just a guy in production and he a premier columnist. Editors and writers at Time cared what those of us in production thought about as much as they cared about the views of the cleaning crew, less actually. But, and I can´t remember how it started, Charles and I would sometimes correspond. Once I gave him an idea for a column and he used it. Damn I felt smart! Charles was as gutsy a guy as I ever hope to meet. RIP.

Charles was extremely intelligent, and wrote well, but demonstrated, during the Obama Administration and the Trump presidency, that he was an elitist of the first order, having no clue about those of us in flyover country. He was to the manor born and lived his life in the bubble, never deigning to associate with, and learn about, the real America. I truly believe he agreed with the PIAPS that Trump voters and supporters are uneducated boobs and deplorables. Prayers for his family and may he rest in peace.

Unfortunately, Dr. Krauthammer has been out of the public eye, and missing from the national dialogue, for most of the Trump presidency. While I know he was not a fan of the President, and was very hard on him during the campaign, I think we may all be surprised at how he may have assessed the administration. I suspect that he would still dislike Trump´s style but that he would be pleased with the progress the administration has been making on many front. Instead of "hate the sin, love the sinner," I think he would take the approach, "hate the style, love the results." In short, I think he would´ve been fair on the outcomes and would have stayed stuck in the Never Trump camp.

For those who are still complaining about Dr. K´s "dislike " of Trump, have you actually read everything he´s written or said about Trump and all of the other presidents. Try reading. He was hard on all of them and often changed his mind as he saw them in office. He did not hate Trump, and he called things as he saw them, regardless of party. That is what a good columnist does, and that is why he was respected by people other than hypocrites. I cringe when I read how "saintly" people think any president or politician is. They´re not.

Trump Delivers on Russia
Wall Street Journal, by Holman W. Jenkins, Jr.    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/18/2018 8:46:35     Post Reply
Robert Mueller did his reputation for nonpartisanship no service by launching his indictment of Russia’s military hackers on the eve of what 99% of the media now say was a disastrous performance by President Trump in his summit with Vladimir Putin. This is the same Mr. Mueller who, as FBI chief, sat for five years on the indictment of a Russian uranium executive when it would have been embarrassing to Mr. Obama’s own Russia rapprochement—and doubly embarrassing to his secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, because of the connection of the Clinton Foundation to the Russian uranium business in question.

It had been two days since William Voge was publicly disgraced, and the 61-year-old globe-trotting lawyer couldn’t sleep. His family, his colleagues and competitors, everyone it seemed, knew about the sexually explicit texts he exchanged last year with a woman he had never met in person, and still hasn’t. The fallout scandalized the legal profession and would cost Mr. Voge his job at Latham & Watkins LLP, one of the highest grossing law firms in the world, where he was chairman. Mr. Voge slipped out of his $5 million house in Solana Beach, Calif., that night in March. He went to a

As Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination tees up another national debate about reproductive rights, is it too much to ask that abortion’s impact on the black population be part of the discussion? When the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade in 1973, polling showed that blacks were less likely than whites to support abortion. Sixties-era civil rights activists like Fannie Lou Hamer and Whitney Young had denounced the procedure as a form of genocide. Jesse Jackson called abortion “murder” and once told a black newspaper in Chicago that “we used to look for death from the man in the blue

By picking Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee, President Trump showed that credentials and connections still matter — when backed up by results. One of the most scholarly members of the judiciary, Kavanaugh’s more than 300 opinions are read widely and influence courts across the country — including the one that he now hopes to join. There are few if any more respected lower-court judges. More important than his erudition is Kavanaugh’s intense commitment to constitutional structure. As Anthony Kennedy, the justice he clerked for and now seeks to succeed, often emphasized, this is vital not simply to the functioning

California’s Climate Extremism

Environmental extremism increasingly dominates California. The state is making a concerted attack on energy companies in the courts; a bill is pending in the legislature to fine waiters $1,000—or jail them—if they offer people plastic straws; and UCLA issued a report describing pets as a climate threat. The state has taken upon itself the mission of limiting the flatulence of cows and other farm animals. As the self-described capital of the anti-Trump resistance, California presents itself as the herald of a green, more socially and racially just society. That view has been utterly devastated by a new report from Chapman

O’Rourke probably won’t lose by as much as Davis (the most recent University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll has him trailing Ted Cruz by five points, where Davis lost by about 20), but he has the same basic problem: he’s extremely exciting to rich, white liberals in places like Austin and Dallas.

Mr. Crowley is chairman of the Democratic caucus, making him the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House. He also was the heir apparent to the minority leader, Nancy Pelosi. Ms. Pelosi, now 78, has herded Democratic cats for nearly 16 years and has made clear her desire to stay put if the party wins back the majority in November. But she’s expected to face a serious

There is an American besides President Donald Trump who was privy to the two-hour private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin – a government translator who sat in on the entire meeting. Marina Gross, a State Department translator, was pictured along with Trump, Putin, and Putin´s translator at their Helsinki summit. Interest in her role has only grown, after furious critics accused Trump of ´treason´ for failing to push Putin publicly in any way at their Helsinki summit.

In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative. In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic.

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic party. In a recent interview, however, the upstart politico running in a hyper-liberal district in New York did not show command of the issues. Ocasio-Cortez was being interviewed by Margaret Hoover on the PBS show ‘Firing Line.’ Hoover asked very basic, softball questions of the young congressional candidate.
