Charles Krauthammer: Candidates, step in to your designated line

The Republican nominating race is a mess: a strong field, but with 10 declared candidates and a half-dozen more to come, we need a bouncer to keep order.

Charles Krauthammer: Following up on doctors’ digital dilemma

I rarely do follow-up columns. I'm averaging one every 10 years. And while my last such exercise resulted in a written apology from the White House (for accusing me of making up facts over its removal of Churchill's bust), today's is not a complaint. It's merely a recognition that the huge response elicited by last week's column, "Why Doctors Quit," warrants both rebuttal and clarification.

Charles Krauthammer: Why do doctors quit? The new mandate of data entry

About a decade ago, a doctor friend was lamenting the increasingly frustrating conditions of clinical practice. "How did you know to get out of medicine in 1978?" he asked with a smile.

Charles Krauthammer: Want an Iraq hypothetical? Try this one on

Ramadi falls. The Iraqi army flees. The great 60-nation anti-Islamic State coalition so grandly proclaimed by the Obama administration is nowhere to be seen. Instead, it's the defense minister of Iran who flies into Baghdad, an unsubtle demonstration of who's in charge - while the U.S. air campaign proves futile and America's alleged strategy for combating the Islamic State is in freefall.

Charles Krauthammer: Fast track on trade is a win Obama needs

That free trade is advantageous to both sides is the rarest of political propositions - provable, indeed mathematically. David Ricardo did so in 1817. The Law of Comparative Advantage has held up nicely for 198 years.

Charles Krauthammer: Free Willy, and all caged innocents of zoos and farms

We often wonder how people of the past, including the most revered and refined, could have universally engaged in conduct now considered unconscionable.

Charles Krauthammer: A story of men wielding power in hellish times

"Wolf Hall," the Man Booker Prize-winning historical novel about the court of Henry VIII - and most dramatically, the conflict between Thomas Cromwell and Sir Thomas More - is now a TV series (presented on PBS). It is maddeningly good.

Charles Krauthammer: Obama’s Nixon doctrine seeks to anoint Iran as regional power

In December, President Barack Obama said that he wished to see Iran ultimately become a "very successful regional power." His wish - a nightmare for the Western-oriented Arab states - is becoming a reality. Consider:

Charles Krauthammer: Queen Hillary travels by van, but she is who she is

See Hillary ride in a van! Watch her meet everyday Americans! Witness her ordering a burrito bowl at Chipotle! Which she did wearing shades, as did her chief aide Huma Abedin, yielding security-camera pictures that made them look (to borrow from Karl Rove) like fugitives on the lam, wanted in seven states for a failed foreign policy.

Charles Krauthammer: We’ve given up plenty but gained little with Iran deal

It was but a year and a half ago that Barack Obama endorsed the objective of abolition when he said that Iran's heavily fortified Fordow nuclear facility, its plutonium-producing heavy-water reactor and its advanced centrifuges were all unnecessary for a civilian nuclear program. The logic was clear: Since Iran was claiming to be pursuing an exclusively civilian program, these would have to go.

Charles Krauthammer: Don’t hold your breath for Mideast peace

Of all the idiocies uttered in reaction to Benjamin Netanyahu's stunning election victory, none is more ubiquitous than the idea that peace prospects are now dead because Netanyahu has declared that there will be no Palestinian state while he is Israel's prime minister.

Charles Krauthammer: Netanyahu offers a Churchillian warning on Iran

Benjamin Netanyahu's address to Congress was notable in two respects. Queen Esther got her first standing O in 2,500 years. And President Barack Obama came up empty in his campaign to pre-emptively undermine Netanyahu before the Israeli prime minister could present his case on the Iran negotiations.

Charles Krauthammer: Iran fiasco is worst deal ever made in US diplomacy

The devil is not in the details. It's in the entire conception of the Iran deal, animated by President Barack Obama's fantastical belief that he, uniquely, could achieve detente with a fanatical Islamist regime whose foundational purpose is to cleanse the Middle East of the poisonous corruption of American power and influence.

Charles Krauthammer: Push to lower flag overdue, albeit rushed

After a massacre like the one at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, our immediate reaction is to do something. Something, for politicians, means legislation. And for Democratic politicians, this means gun control.

Charles Krauthammer: New strategy is needed for Iraq and Syria

It's time for a new strategy in Iraq and Syria. It begins by admitting that the old borders are gone, that a unified Syria or Iraq will never be reconstituted, that the Sykes-Picot map is defunct.
