KRAUTHAMMER:: Nationalized gay marriage, now inevitable – WaPo

By Charles Krauthammer, Thursday, June 27, 5:07 PM-- Under the Defense of Marriage Act, the federal government does not recognize same-sex marriages even in states that have legalized it.

KRAUTHAMMER: Syria: America Sidelined | National Review Online

JUNE 20, 2013 8:00 PM, By Charles Krauthammer After Iraq, Obama wasted a golden opportunity to keep a presence in the region.   The war in Syria, started by locals, is now a regional conflict, the meeting ground of two warring blocs. On one side, the radical Shiite bloc led by Iran, which overflies Iraq to supply Bashar Assad and sends Hezbollah to fight ... Go To Article

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER:: Pushing the Envelope, NSA-Style | National Review Online

Thirty-five years ago in United States v. Choate, the courts ruled that the Postal Service may record “mail cover,” i.e., what’s written on the outside of an envelope — the addresses of sender and receiver. The National Security Agency’s recording of U.S. phone data does basically that with the telephone. It records who is calling whom — the outside of the ... Go To Article

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Obama’s Dorothy Doctrine – WaPo

By Charles Krauthammer, Thursday, May 30, 5:10 PM “This war, like all wars, must end. That’s what history advises . . .” Nice thought. But much as Obama would like to close his eyes, click his heels three times and declare the war on terror over, war is a two-way street. That’s what history advises: Two sides to fight it, two to end it. By surrender ... Go To Article

By Charles Krauthammer Published: May 23 E-mail the writer “Horrible customer service.” That’s what the newly fired IRS commissioner averred was the agency’s only sin in singling out conservative political groups for discriminatory treatment.

By Charles Krauthammer, Published: May 16 E-mail the writer -- Note to GOP re Benghazi: Stop calling it Watergate, Iran-contra, bigger than both, etc. First, it might well be, but we don’t know. History will judge. Second, overhyping will only diminish the importance of the scandal if it doesn’t meet presidency-breaking standards. Third, focusing on the political ... Go To Article

By Charles Krauthammer, Thursday, May 9, 4:29 PM You know you’re in trouble when you can’t even get your walk-back story straight. Stung by the worldwide derision that met President Obama’s fudging and fumbling of his chemical-weapons red line in Syria, the White House leaked to the New York Times that Obama’s initial statement had been unprepared, unscripted ...

KRAUTHAMMER: Obama: The Fall | NRO

By Charles Krauthammer, May 2, 2013 Fate is fickle, power cyclical, and nothing is new under the sun. Especially in Washington, where after every election the losing party is sagely instructed to confess sin, rend garments, and rethink its principles lest it go the way of the Whigs. And where the victor is hailed as the new Caesar, facing an open road to ... Go To Article

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: The language of terror – WaPo

By Charles Krauthammer, Thursday, April 18 -- Terrorism is speech — speech that gathers its audience by killing innocents as theatrically as possible. The 19th-century anarchist Paul Brousse called it “propaganda by deed.” Accordingly, the Boston Marathon attack, the first successful terror bombing in the United States since 9/11, was designed for maximum ...
