Dr. Krauthammer Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not.
Dr. Krauthammer is on Fox News. He is an M.D. and he is paralyzed from the neck down. Be forewarned on what is happening. 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. You would do well to read and pass this along to EVERYBODY that loves his country. This is VERY serious for the direction of our country. The ramifications are staggering for us & our children.
Last Monday was a profound evening, hearing Dr. Charles Krauthammer speak to the Center for the American Experiment. He is 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 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 shared this with many of you and several have asked me to summarize 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. Taking down the Clinton
dynasty from a political neophyte 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, &
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
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 Mr. Krauthammer believes he is a narcissist.
8. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong.
Were 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 were 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!!!
