Sorry, Dr. Krauthammer,
the problem is on the left

There are few political commentators that come up to the level of Dr. Charles Krauthammer, but yesterday he managed to say something very intelligent, reasonable, superficially correct, yet wrong-headed. In his appearance on Special Report yesterday, he blamed multiple factors that involve both parties for the horrendous violence enacted on a baseball practice field (snip)There is something unique in the current era, as far as my historical knowledge goes.

No matter what the pundits say or think, most Americans are not fools- not even many anti-Trumpers. They know where the hate and violence is coming from and why. The unbalanced left may cheer all the hate speech, violence and chaos caused by the democrats and the disgusting media, but they know too.

I guess it has always been that politicians and the media, in their Ivory Towers, think that most Americans are stupid. Based on what I see happening, it is truly the opposite.

"An important percentage of the public has embraced politics as their religion."
That is the root of the problem! It is why people refuse to analyze, or include new information into their decision making process. They were born a democrat. They will support their team, even when some of their players do very wrong things. It is their religion.

I once really liked Dr. K. I always sought his opinions in written media and paid particularly close attention when he spoke on Fox or where ever he was offering his bits of wisdom. But, lately, ever since President trump ascended to become the Republican candidate for the Presidency, he has turned into something quite the opposite of what he once was.

I´ve watched and mostly enjoyed Dr. K over the years; he often makes interesting points and develops arguments in a logical way. However, he can be blind or obtuse regarding certain basic perceptions, such as the intent and methods of the Left.

The left encourages, condones, carries out and cheers acts of violence against us. They know that they always get away with it. Their leaders and the media cheer them, look the other way and/or blame us.

All we are doing is planning and anticipating when, where, how hard and how lethally we´re going to hit back.

Like many previous posters, Dr. k´s comments were the highlight of the news for me and I often state he was the smartest observer of the political scene on TV. Now, I don´t bother to watch him (or FOX news, sadly) because like most anti-Trumpers he refuses to admit he might have been hasty in his judgement. Are you reading, Jonah? There´s nothing more pathetic than seeing someone, once highly respected, implode before our eyes because of stubbornness to change their views....George Wills, AB Stoddard, Jonah Goldberg, etc.

There is an infrastructure on the Left, funded by Soros satellite groups, Media Matters, BLM, the remnant of what was once ACORN, and who knows how many other actively subversive groups that are paid for deliberate acts of hooliganism, vandalism, and outright physical assault on political opponents. On the Right there isn´t a single sane entity calling for violence against political opponents on the Left. Left against Right political acts of violence number in the thousands since Obama´s ascendancy; Right against Left acts of violence are in single digits. There is no equivalence.

Dr. Krauthammer, a man I have long admired even despite some disappointment with his advanced case of Beltwayitis, is tilting too far toward tolerance of evil, or, alternately, of ascribing it in general to an entire philosophical class, blameless people who must be lied about constantly, shamelessly.

Dr K´s and George Will´s professed atheism is, I believe, at the bottom of their apostasy. Intellectual idolatry is a dangerous pursuit. Smart people are predisposed to be attracted to it, and to be repelled by faith in the Almighty, unseen by those whose intellectualism is their peculiar god.

Over the years I have always liked the doctor, Krauthammer, but I have come to the conclusion that he is now out of his political depth. His cut his teeth on anesthetized political journalism, a product of traditional political times. When one party refuses to enforce the law and descends to the level of declaring the other party to be racist, bigots and misogynists, the political push back going to be dramatic and overwhelming. TRUMP’s leadership style is the only effective response to the reckless cultural aggression of liberal Democrats and their media cohorts.

There is a simple solution to much of the hatefulness on the internet, F/B, Twits, etc.

Eliminate the anonymity. Allow, with the proper legal sanctions or required documentation stating why the unmasking is needed, the publication of a commenter´s name & address.

If people knew they could lose everything by running their mouth, it would all stop. If there were consequences, bad consequences, it would all stop.

But there is a simple rule that I taught my sons: if you wouldn´t say something to a person face-to-face, don´t post it on the net. That is simply an extension of the rule: if you wouldn´t say something in front of your Grandmother, it doesn´t need to be said.

I´m done with Krauthammer who is now busy playing both sides of the street and sounding more like George Will (his best friend and alter ego) on a daily basis. Where he once brought credibility to the Baier news show "now defunct" panels, that´s no longer true. Now we see him, and appropriately so, seated with Juan Williams, Julie Pace (AP and officially surviving without a single intact brain cell—a zero contributor without fail), the just plain mean and shape shifting leftie AB Stoddard, Steve Hayes who succeeded Bill the sellout Kristol, Charles Lane...and all the other old phonies they can scrape up to do their new version of "See Fox morph left..more at 50." Fox is on the skids and all the new sets, et al, won´t cut it. If proof is needed, tune in to the new Specialists show just before Bret Baier and witness the most obnoxious new addition woman in all of TV: Eboni something or other. This is a small wiry loud mouth boor who has every rude and awful trick up her sleeves 24/7 and she´s gets some kind of anchor seat next to Bolling. Her counter ego named Kat something or other is so awful to see I haven´t a clue what she says. Suffice it to say it´s the new Fox and is a new hour of pure hell—that it has sponsors is nothing less than amazing.

Hats off to the Murdoch boys who are well on their way to tubing Fox for good. And thanks to Krauthammer who has joined in full force selling out at every opportunity.

All excellent Comments, here; but #s 12 and 13 are superlative.

Republicans have played the role of "abused spouse" for decades, intimidated and acclimated to every kind of opprobrium and vile accusation.

The minute Republicans --or a segment of that Party and an amalgam-- began to push back, with a spontaneously developing activist wing, namely TEA Partiers, and all the old, effete Party poohbahs huffed and puffed, "That´s just not how we behave!" tut tut
(We suspect that these people secretly nodded in approval of Hillary´s "deplorable" comments.)

Needless to say, the Left being activist and pugilistic to the core, also was a bit caught off guard. So #12´s analysis is so important.

And as usual, Lifson nails it.

While Democrats obsess over the Russia hacking fantasy and Robert Mueller as Trump´s Javert, President Trump, the Federalist Society, and Senator Chuck Grassley are on the way to making the federal judiciary great again. The Huffington Post noticed and is worried: Trump is unbelievably well-positioned to fill up federal courts with lifetime judges. He inherited a whopping 108 court vacancies when he became president – double the number of vacancies President Barack Obama inherited when he took office. The reason Trump gets to fill so many seats is partly because Obama was slow to fill court vacancies early in his tenure. But

For Republicans, winning never gets monotonous. The Karen Handel victory in the Georgia 6th district special election repeats a pattern depressingly familiar to the left. There have been 4 special congressional elections since the hated Trump took office and Democrats have lost all 4. In each contest, the left predicted victory - largely based on what they perceived was hatred of President Trump by ordinary Americans which would generate "enthusiasm" for the Democratic candidate and drive people in overwhelming numbers to the polls. Each of the 4 Democratic candidates was well financed and received strong support from the national party. Each Democratic

The Washington D.C. nomenklatura advanced forward last week with its slow-moving coup d’état against America’s constitutionally elected President. But even after the federal bureaucracy’s further progress toward undoing the 2016 election, I confess to a faint hope that Special Counsel Robert Swan Mueller III -- supposed embodiment of upper class, non-partisan, lawyerly virtue -- might actually conduct a fair, focused and swift inquiry into the matter assigned him. In the end, though, the sensible old lawyer’s voice in my head whispers that this hope is more pipe dream than prediction of events.

President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday.

A feminist magazine is calling on all white women to “do their part to prevent white supremacy” and abort their white babies. This is sick beyond words. The feminist Medusa Magazine reported: In a progressive society, it is often white families that stand in the way of equality and justice. Systemic white supremacy depends, first and foremost, on the white family unit. When white conquerors forcefully penetrated the indigenous, egalitarian homeland of the Native peoples of America, they were quick to replicate their white societies, initiating their parasitism by establishing white plantations, headed by white fathers, submissive white mothers, and,

I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers
