Krauthammer: Lowering tax rates would end inversion

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is highly exercised about "inversion," the practice by which an American corporation acquires a foreign company and moves its headquarters out of the U.S. to benefit from lower tax rates abroad.

Krauthammer: Amnesty used as bait to lure impeachment

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama is impatient. Congress won't act on immigration, he says, and therefore he will. The White House is coy as to exactly what the president will do. But the leaks point to an executive order essentially legalizing an enormous new class of illegal immigrants, perhaps up to 5 million people.

Krauthammer: The vacant presidency raises worries

WASHINGTON - The president's demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached.

Krauthammer: No-brainer on border kids; they can’t stay

Krauthammer: Obama's government by fiat and overreach

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court this week admonished the Environmental Protection Agency for overreaching in regulating greenhouse gases. The Clean Air Act covers polluters that emit 250 tons per year (or in some cases, 100 tons). This standard makes no sense if applied to greenhouse gases. Thousands of establishments from elementary schools to grocery stores would be, absurdly, covered. So the EPA arbitrarily chose 100,000 tons as the carbon dioxide threshold.

Krauthammer: US pays a hefty price for abdication in Iraq

Krauthammer: An empty address at West Point
