DR. CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER

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, hearing Dr. Charles Krauthammer spoke 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 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 by 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, 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!!!

 LETTER TO OBAMA

This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it.  (Big surprise!)  Since it hit the internet, however, it has had over 500,000 hits.  Keep it going. 

Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America‘s true living legends- an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher and one of the world’s highest rated speakers. Successful corporate executives everywhere recognize him as the foremost leader in change management. Lou changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as “partnering.” Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales and Customer Development for Procter and Gamble and over the course of 36 years, made corporate history.
 
 
 AN OPEN LETTER TO
 PRESIDENT OBAMA
 
 Dear President Obama:
 
 You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me. 
 You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.
 
 You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support. 

 You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.
 
 You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.
 
 You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don’t understand it at its core. 
 
 You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others. 

 You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.
 
 You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America ‘ crowd and deliver this message abroad.
 
 You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

 You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.
 
 You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.
 
 You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.
 
 You scare me because you have begun to use ‘extortion’ tactics against certain banks and corporations.
 
 You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.
 
 You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
 
 You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.
 
 You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.
 
 You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O’Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
 
 You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.
 
 Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.
 
 Lou Pritchett

           Social Security 2009

LET US SHOW OUR LEADERS IN WASHINGTON “PEOPLE POWER” AND THE POWER OF THE INTERNET. PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS.
IT DOESN’T MATTER IF YOU ARE REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT!
 KEEP IT GOING!!!!    normal_Retirement_16[1]

Propose this in 2009:

                  START A BILL TO PLACE ALL POLITICIANS ON SOCIAL SECURITY
                                 ———————————-
                               SOCIAL SECURITY:

                               (This is worth reading. It is short and to the point.)
 Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions during election years.
Our Senators and Congresswomen do not pay into Social Security and, of course, they do not collect from it.
You see, Social Security benefits were not suitable for persons of their rare elevation in society . They felt they    should have a special plan for themselves. So, many years ago they voted in their own benefit plan.
In more recent years, no congressperson has felt the need to change it. After all, it is a great plan.
For all practical purposes their plan works like this:

When they retire, they continue to draw the same pay until they die.
             Except it may increase from time to time for cost of living adjustments…

          For example, Senator Byrd and Congressman White and their wives may expect to draw $7, 800,000.00 (that’s Seven Million, Eight-Hundred Thousand Dollars), with their wives drawing $275, 000..00 during the last years of their lives. This is calculated on an average life span for each of those two Dignitaries. Younger Dignitaries who retire at an early age, will receive much more during the rest of their lives. Their cost for this excellent plan is $0.00. NADA!!! ZILCH!!!  This little perk they voted for themselves is free to them. You and I pick up the tab f or this plan. The funds for this fine retirement plan come directly from the General Funds;

                               “OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK”!

    From our own Social Security Plan, which you and I pay (or have paid) into, every payday until we retire (which amount is matched by our employer), We can expect to get an average of  $1,000 per month after retirement. Or, in other words, we would have to collect our average of $1,000 monthly benefits for 68 years and one (1) month to equal Senator Bill Bradley’s benefits!

Social Security could be very good if only one small change were made. That change would be to Jerk the Golden Fleece Retirement Plan from under the Senators and Congressmen.. Put them into the Social Security plan with the rest of us. Then sit back…..  And see how fast they would fix it! STAND UP & BE COUNTED, AMERICANS!!!!-     normal_Retirement_18[1]

  How many people can YOU show this to?  Better yet…… How many people WILL you send this information.

THE SOFTENING OF AMERICA’S PEOPLE

This is a little gem that has come across the internet. As an older American, I have seen our values erode, as well, as common sense actions which seem to be obsolete. How can anyone object to the adhering to the TEN COMMANDMENTS! Most of the rules are for civilized living between any culture, whether Christian, Jewish, or Moslem, etc. Keeping the Sabbath, would certainly add more unity to family life. We live in such a rat race today. Forget the Sabbath day as Sunday, or Saturday, if non Christian/ Jew. Pick a day, & make it a quiet family day, or one for reflection. My health care which I have made hopefully good decisions about, I thank you is my business! As to my savings or neighbor’s wealth, forget it!!!! Let those who can earn a living, do so & not expect the government to keep them. The illegals have to realize, that we are not their keepers. Let’s care for our own first. For those in real need, I’m sure money could be found, eliminating some hair brain project, that only benefits a select few or some Senator wanting leverage for re-election. Let’s get back to basics! We will destroy ourselves from within, if we don’t change course! Beware Christians, etc. Christianity is fast becoming obsolete. It takes more than lip service to your beliefs. It takes actions! We are becoming a minority! As to the war, forget all the searching for mistakes, someone to persecute. It’s done! Get on with present, & try to do better. Why are we always looking for someone to blame, for everything! We elected these officials! The next time that you vote, do your homework on everyone! Don’t just push a button! Become informed! You’re making decisions for future generations, also. DON’T LET ALL THE MEN, THROUGH THE YEARS, WHO HAVE SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES FOR YOUR FREEDOM, TO HAVE DIED IN VAIN! STAND UP & BE COUNTED! BE A PROUD AMERICAN!! BRING BACK CHRISTIAN VALUES, HONESTY. LET’S MAKE THE PAST PROUD OF THE PRESENT & IT’S FUTURE!memorialday2[1]

 

Subject: America

 

 

I have noted that many elected officials, both Democrats and Republicans, called upon America to unite behind Obama.
Well, I want to make it clear to all who will listen that I AM NOT uniting behind Obama!I will respect the Office which he holds, and I will acknowledge his abilities as an orator and wordsmith and pray for him, BUT that is it!!!

620040_f520[1]
 
I have begun today to see what I can do to make sure that He is a one-term President!

Why am I doing this?

It is because I do not share Obama’s vision or Value system for America;
I do not share his Abortion beliefs;
I do not share his radical Marxist’s concept of re-distributing wealth;
I do not share his stated views on raising taxes on those who make $150,000+ (the ceiling has been changed three times since August);

I do not share his view that America is Arrogant;
I do not share his view that America is not a Christian Nation;
I do not share his view that the military should be reduced by 25%;
I do not share his view of amnesty and giving more to illegal’s than American Citizens who need help;
I do not share his views on homosexuality and his definition of marriage;
I do not share his views that Radical Islam is our friend and Israel is our enemy who should give up any land;
I do not share his spiritual beliefs (at least the ones he has made public);
I do not share his beliefs on how to re-work the healthcare system in America;
I do not share his Strategic views of the Middle East, and certainly do not share his plan to sit down with terrorist regimes such as Iran.
 
Bottom line, my America is vastly different from Obama’s, and I have a higher obligation to my Country and my God to do what is Right!
 
For eight (8) years, the Liberals in our Society, led by numerous entertainers who would have no platform and no real credibility but for their celebrity status, have attacked President Bush, his family, and his spiritual beliefs!
They have not moved toward the center in their beliefs and their philosophies, and they never came together nor compromised their personal beliefs for the betterment of our Country! They have portrayed my America as a land where everything is tolerated except being intolerant!

They have been a vocal and irreverent minority for years; they have mocked and attacked the very core values so important to the founding and growth of our Country!

They have made every effort to remove the name of God or Jesus Christ from our Society! They have challenged capital punishment, the right to bear firearms, and the most basic principles of our criminal code; they have attacked one of the most fundamental of all Freedoms, the right of free speech!
 
Unite behind Obama? Never!

I am sure many of you who read this think that I am going overboard, but I refuse to retreat one more inch in favor of those whom I believe are the embodiment of Evil!
 
PRESIDENT BUSH made many mistakes during his Presidency, and I am not sure how history will judge him.
However, I believe that he weighed his decisions in light of the long established Judeo-Christian principles of our Founding Fathers!!!

Majority rules in America , and I will honor the concept; however, I will fight with all of my power to be a voice in opposition to Obama and “his goals for America .”

I am going to be a thorn in the side of those who, if left unchecked, will destroy our Country!! Any more compromise is more defeat!

I pray that the results of this election will wake up many who have sat on the sidelines and allowed the Socialist-Marxist anti-God crowd to slowly change so much of what has been good in America !
 
“Error of Opinion may be tolerated where Reason is left free to combat it.” (Thomas Jefferson)

God bless you and God bless our Country!!!  (Please, please, please. Pass this on if you agree.)

Thanks for your time, be safe.  “In God We Trust”
 
‘If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.’

POLITICS- THE SUPREME COURT

One thing that should drive an election, is hardly ever mentioned.  That is the effect that a particular party has on the election of Supreme Court Justices!  One by one the intention of our Founding Fathers had made in the Constitution, have eroded. Without freedom what good does wealth or station in life mean to anyone?  Those free thinkers which the Constitution protects too, want all semblance of God & reference to God erased in our culture.  Without God we are nothing but a cesspool of ideas, as in Ancient Greece, etc.  Just as they have their rights, they should tolerate ours as well.  Tolerance is at an all time low in this country.  But what does that have to do with the court system?  Well, they will decide if a religious thought will prevail, as in the past or be obliterated.  I understand some new dollar coins now have the motto,”In God We Trust” removed.  The Ten Commandment tablet, was removed from a court building, awhile back.  How could that be offensive to anyone?  The commandments whether religious based or not, are rules for living in a civilized world.  Ex.  Thou shall not kill, steal, covet, licentious behavior, etc.  Don’t we condemn this behavior?  Well, some of us, anyhow.  I think that Christianity is slowly becoming a minority choice.  We are soon becoming a persecuted group, as in the old days. Today’s liberated peoples want freedom from everything!  No constraints!!!!  Abortion has become the biggest Holocaust in this country in the last century.  It’s INFANTICIDE!  Don’t want to practice Contraception- Abortion!  Don’t like the sex of child-Abortion!  Inconvenient time to have a baby- Abortion!  God help us it comes with flaws- Abortion!  What kind of peoples have some of become, that the unborn have no protection from the one who would nurture them.  I do believe that sometimes the practice crosses a fuzzy line, such as rapes or incest, or possible death of mother.  It’s a heck of a situation!  But that’s why, if the courts must be involved, we must have those in office who do not have an individual agenda or liberal in their thinking, decide for us law!  Figuratively speaking, the baby is made probably in the bedroom, so the issue should stay there, between the couple & their conscience.  But let’s not make it so easy to abort an innocent!  And partial birth abortions should be outlawed, at any time of pregnancy. So choose your presidents wisely, Ultimately, they may be be making life & death decisions that will directly effect you, in regards to law.

Incidentally, I was teaching in Abington, when the issue of Bible reading came up in schools.  As part of their reverence for the day, it set the tone.  There was respect for the values our country was founded on, many years ago.  I saw the erosion of respect for God & Country disappear, one by one. First the Bible reading disappeared, then just a silent prayer was said by those so inspired.  Can you imagine a silent prayer being considered by a 6 or 7 year old in a public place with peers? Then, if your parents objected to that, you could leave room, especially when the issue of the flag salute came up.  How can we teach respect for our country & not salute the flag?  I know, ye naysayers, it’s just a SYMBOL!   But suddenly all semblance of respect was gone.  The calming agenda, that set the tone of the day, was gone. Opening exercises became generic, uninvolved procedure such as an attendance, collecting notes from home, or a story that didn’t need telling.  And I hate to tell you there’s nothing being taught in many homes on any of the above.

So where was I?  When everything else fails:

ABORT

ERASE PAST

DO WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD

TAKE ALL REMNANTS OF GOD & COUNTRY FROM EVERY        

         PUBLIC BUILDING, MONEY, MEETINGS, WORD OF

         MOUTH, ETC.

ELECT ALL OFFICIALS & JUDGES WHO AGREE WITH OUR

          WARPED VIEWS

RESULTS:  CHAOS, CHAOS, CHAOS!!! CIVILIZED NO MORE!

And some will wonder why God doesn’t seem to be on our side or pay attention to our plight.  Well, if I were THE ALMIGHTY, I’d wash my hands of the whole lot of you!  Those of us who have a direct line with him, know otherwise.
