Dr. Charles Krauthammer

It's better to be paralyzed from the neck down, than to be paralyzed from the neck up...

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.
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 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!!!


Mr. Obama, Those Are OUR Prisoners at Gitmo, Not Yours; Leave Them Where They Are

Minority Leader L. Salvio Speaks out


To The Editor:

Three articles have appeared in the New Britain Herald (NBH) in the past r0ur days; one: by Herald Staff Writer James Craven 0n 12/24/09, [“Pricetag hampers ambitious child “Blueprint”] and two Opinion pieces on Sunday, 12/27/09; one by, Chris Powell, Managing Editor of the Journal Enquirer in Manchester, [“On the feast of Stephen, Connecticut eats the poor”]; also, one by, William A. Collins, Columnist for Minuteman Media, {“Children of color: Still separate and unequal in America”].

While coming from different points of view, all three articles/opinions address the same basic problem, namely helping poor urban children of the “cities” achieve parity in education with children of other districts, in particular, the suburbs.

Craven’s article refers to a recently released, “Blueprint for Improving the Lives of Children Birth through 3rd Grade”, a project of the New Britain Discovery Collaborative headed by Merrill Gay. That the “blueprint” is really a series of pie in the sky ideas –my opinion- is a reflection by Gay who says, “…it will be a challenge to bring it to fruition.” Gay says further that he believes the project would probably cost out at between $10 to 15 million!

Chris Powell takes a completely different tack; Powell points out why our do nothing State Legislature while acknowledging the problem created by poverty in hampering the education of Connecticut’s children must be addressed, there is no clue that it will find the wherewithal in any of their budgets to fund relief. The State legislators like their U.S. counterparts take care of themselves first while everyone else’s needs are put in the rumble seat.

Still, on another tack, William Collins points out - again, my interpretation – why the suburbs don’t care if educational parity is ever achieved. The poor pay for this wealthy and middle class attitude because it is the poor that are left with the, “bum schools, full jails, crummy housing… etc. Even the affluent that haven’t left the cities don’t care because they can pay the price for their children to attend private/parochial schools.

If the readers haven’t yet read these articles/columns, please try to find them. They are well worth the read!

Credit Union Robbed @ 55 Curtis st New Britain
Credit Union In New Britain Robbed
The Hartford Courant

December 29, 2009


Three men armed with handguns robbed a Nutmeg State Federal Credit Union branch about noon Monday.

Police were called to the credit union at 55 Curtis St. at 12:05 p.m. The men wore hooded sweat shirts, face masks and gloves, police said.

The men demanded cash and threatened violence, police said. They escaped with an undetermined amount of money, and no injuries were reported.

When the men left the bank, they got into a white 1994 Honda Accord with Connecticut registration 972TSF. The car had been reported stolen earlier in the day in New Britain. It was last seen heading north on Broad Street.

Anyone with information is asked to call New Britain police Lt. James Wardwell at 860-826-3065.

New Britain Citizens Wake Up--- The Busway is being Torpedoed

Anonymous said...
People in New Britain know full well how Nebraskans feel. Our state legislators, especially DeFronzo are ready to torpedo the Hartford/New Britain Busway to satisfy Nicastro from Bristol!!
Why? Having spent almost $50 million on the plans and design for the busway so far the legislators are now ready to scrap those plans and 10 years of planning to satisfy Bristol, a city that can't even make up its mind on what to do with its downtown. What has -if anything- Nicastro promised in return for scrapping 10 years 0f planning and $50 million?

The busway can be a reality in 3 yrs. while estimates for passenger rail service are estimated to take 15-20 yrs, to complete. In the meantime, New Britain's downtown development plans will be adversely affected, monumentally.

Word is out that our legislators, DeFronzo, Geragosian, Tercyak, O'Brien and Boukus are trying now to arrange for a meeting for New Britainites similar to what Nicastro did in Bristol. And on the other side of their collective mouths they talk about property tax reform, blight cleanup, tax relief for seniors, etc. But, once again they are ready to throw away $50 million!!!!! You guys are the worst.

And what about all the news and editorials recently in the "New Britain Herald" about Bristol?? This whole mess conjures up similarities between what's happening here and the selling of our Constitution by the U.S. Congress by people like Ben Nelson, Joe Lieberman, Chris Dodd, Harry Reid and others.
