Charles Krauthammer Conservative Pundit

Updated on November 13, 2016

More than a Conservative Pundit - Charles Krauthammer

PHYSICIAN, COLUMNIST, JOURNALIST, COMMENTATOR

Born March 13, 1950, Charles Krauthammer is more than just an American pundit. He was raised in Montreal, Canada where he attended High School and McGill University obtaining a degree in political science and economics in 1970.

Through my research, I found out that Charles attended Harvard Medical School in 1975. After earning a his M.D., he began working as a psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital Suffering a paralyzing diving accident diving accident in his first year of medical school, he was hospitalized for a year, during which time he continued his medical studies

From 1975-1978, Krauthammer was a Resident and then a Chief Resident in Psychiatry at the Massachusetts General Hospital. 1984, he became board certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.

A Fox News contributor, Pulitzer-Prize winning syndicated columnist, and Washington Post contributor, Charles is a contributing editor to the Weekly Standard and The New Republic. He also is a weekly panelist on Inside Washington.

I really like Charles. I feel he speaks his mind. He is very clear and easy to understand. It is refreshing to have such a commentator on the evening news. I don't always agree with his personal views but I appreciate his upfront, honest and fair evaluation of the news. I hope you will give Charles a try.

On the Zimmerman Case

July 21, 2013

Charles makes so much sense and I guess that is why I like him. The Zimmerman case was used by politicians and certain groups to put on "race" issues and "gun control" issues. As one x-Obama administration officeholder once said, "Never let a crisis go to waste!" Here is what Charles said about the recent case:

"The injection of race into the story by the media, by irresponsible politicians and by the usual racial entrepreneurs has been poisonous. President Barack Obama didn't help when his first reaction to the death of Trayvon Martin was, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon," thereby immediately making skin color a central issue."


A Reagan Forum with Dr. Charles Krauthammer - November 2, 2013

Charles shares his experience with politics, how our America has changed with socialistic values imposed over 60+ years and the effect it has had on our country, its people and politics. This is one of the best documentations given by Charles that I have ever seen.

7/25/2013 Charles comments on Obama's own countdown

Obama soon to go?

Obama is acting like he is crying the blues and saying to the American people, "You are going to lose me in 1,276 days." Well Mr. President, some of us are counting the days. Your popularity is falling. Your job approval down 25%......we are counting the days.

See a quote and read the following article:

"The new FOX News poll tells the troubling tale for the president: His job approval rating among independent voters has fallen to 25 percent. That's not only his lowest ever, down 20 points from a year ago, but almost 20 points below George W. Bush's rating at this point in his second term."

The Great Gaffe

October 18, 2012

By Charles Krauthammer, Thursday, October 18, 1:31 PM

“And the suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the secretary of state, our U.N. ambassador, anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we’ve lost four of our own, governor, is offensive.”

Fight night at Hofstra. The two boxers, confined within a ring of spectators — circling, feinting, taunting, staring each other down — come several times, by my reckoning, no more than one provocation away from actual fisticuffs, of the kind that on occasion so delightfully break out in the Taiwanese parliament. Think of it: the Secret Service storming the ring, pinning Mitt Romney to the canvas as Candy Crowley administers the 10 count.

The actual outcome was somewhat more pedestrian. President Obama gained a narrow victory on points, as borne out by several flash polls. The margin was small, paling in comparison to Romney’s 52-point victory in the first debate.

Secondary Mania

From 1975-1978, Krauthammer was a Resident and then a Chief Resident in Psychiatry at the Massachusetts General Hospital. During this time he and a colleague identified a form of mania resulting from a concomitant medical illness, rather than a primary inherent disorder, which they named "secondary mania".

Dr. Charles Krauthammer Addresses Washington Policy Center Dinner

Dr. Charles Krauthammer spoke Wednesday to over 1,200 people at the annual dinner of the Washington Policy Center, a nonpartisan, free market research think tank. Bloggers who write for Sound Politics were also privileged to meet Dr. Krauthammer at a press availability prior to the dinner. About half a dozen of us from the "new" media joined by one reporter from the on-line Seattle P.I. got to spend 35 quality time minutes with Dr. Krauthammer. I was surprised that no reporters from the Seattle Times, local TV/radio or weekly papers were there. Too busy covering local issues was one excuse offered but my guess is bias against Fox News, where Krauthammer often appears, played a role. Too bad, they missed an opportunity to question one of the premiere political minds in the country. Perhaps they did not realize he once worked for the Carter administration, was a speechwriter for Walter Mondale and wrote for the left leaning New Republic magazine - before growing older and wiser.

You, however, may listen to his talk as soon as it is posted on the Washington Policy Center web site. If you do, it will be time well spent.

Charles Speaking on the Mystery of the Zygote.

That's the mystery that deserves respect. Whether the mysterious transition happens at the very beginning with the zygote or whether it happens more gradually, we know that it ends up with a baby in the end, which in itself is a wonder.

So I respect that mystery, and I have less respect for those who think that this is all easily explained by material means. I'm not implying something transcendental, but there's something that we don't understand about how you can transition from the inanimate to the animate, and we see it happen before our eyes. So I think that you need an elementary respect for that. Whether it's religious or secular, I don't really care.

Krauthammer on Obama - A Very Interesting Insight.

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, Dr. Charles Krauthammer spoke to the Center for the American Experiment. He is a 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. Krauthammer on Obama

Charles and the game of Chess

Charles is a chess player and this is no surprise. With a mind such as his you would suspect that he would play the game. However, with is medical backgound, he does makes some interesting observations about what could possibly come from a person's constant involvement in its study. If one puts his head into only one thing, studying day and night, or as they say "sleeping and eating chess", I could see where it might be possible to be negatively affect by the game. Human beings need balance.......

Mr. Krauthammer speaks of Bobby Fischer's "made chess behavior" in an article in Time Magazine.( I have added the link for your perusal.) As a doctor of psychiatry by profession, Charles gives us a look into the medical reasons why one might become somewhat psychologically "twisted" by the game. Charles even mentions how it has given himself concern as he has spent many days at the board game. Once again, Charles doesn't fail to enlighten me or entertain me.

      I like Charles Krauthammer because he is speaking straight to the point, he is very knowledgeable in general and he understand politics. He also has a great sense of humor, and he is able to explain complicated matters in a simple way.

      I like Charles Krauthammer very much. It's a shame more people don't listen to his reasoned arguments. Too many of our citizens are only capable of thinking in terms of bumper stickers.

      I enjoyed learning more about Charles Krauthammer. I didn't realize that he was a psychiatrist. I like to hear him on Fox News and agree that he seems to make things easier to understand. He stays so calm, too, which I am sure not always an easy thing to do.

      Thanks for the lens on this man... I'll be honest though. I don't watch television - haven't in years - and never heard of him before. Now if someone mentions him I'll know who they're talking about. Thanks very much for the introduction!
