Investigating Voter Fraud

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 24, 2017

         PRESIDENT TRUMP’S COMMISSION LOOKING INTO ALLEGED VOTER FRAUD HAD ITS FIRST MEETING LAST WEEK. DEMOCRATS HAVE CONSISTENTLY OPPOSED THE INVESTIGATION. WHY? THE BEST WAY TO PROVE THEIR POSITION THAT NO VOTER FRAUD EXISTS IS TO INVESTIGATE IT AND IF THEREE’S NOTHING THERE THE ISSUE WOULD DIE.

         THEY DON’T WANT VOTER FRAUD EXPOSED BECAUSE TOO MANY OF THEM HAVE AIDED FRADULENT VOTERS AND SEE THE PARTY BENEFITTING FROM THEM.

THE GOP FAILURE ON OBAMACARE

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 21, 2017

         THE FAILURE BY REPUBLICANS TO REPEAL, MUCH LESS REPLACE OBAMACARE THIS WEEK REMINDS ME OF A FAMOUS QUOTE BY THE LATE CONGRESSMAN JACK KEMP: “YOU DON’T BEAT A THESIS WITH AN ANTITHESIS; YOU BEAT IT WITH A BETTER THESIS.”

Up Next: The Tax Code

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 20, 2017

         IF THE REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL MAJORITY APPROACHES TAX REFORM THE WAY THEY DID HEALTH INSURANCE, LOOK FOR THAT TO FAIL AS WELL.

         FRESH OFF THEIR FAILURE TO KILL OBAMACARE, REPUBLICANS WILL NOW ADDRESS THE INDECIPHERABLE TAX CODE.

         THE PROBLEM WITH REFORMING THE TAX CODE IS THE SAME PROBLEM THAT CONFRONTED REPEALING OBAMACARE. PURISTS WANT PURITY AND BY SEEKING IT THEY ARE LIKELY TO GET NOTHING.

GOP Surrender On Health Insurance Bill

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 19, 2017

         ATTEMPTS TO REPEAL AND REPLACE OBAMACARE HAVE FAILED IN THE SENATE. MAJORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL RAISED THE WHITE FLAG AFTER TWO MORE REPUBLICAN SENATORS SAID THEY COULD NOT VOTE FOR THE LATEST PROPOSAL.

         REPUBLICANS WILL NOW TRY FOR A STRAIGHT REPEAL VOTE AND START OVER ON A REPLACEMENT. THEY ALSO PLAN TO QUICKLY TURN TO TAX CUTS, WHICH THEY BELIEVE OFFER THEM A BETTER CHANCE AT A QUICK VICTORY.

The Worthless UN

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 18, 2017

         THE UNITED NATIONS HAS ONCE AGAIN PROVED ITS WORTHLESSNESS. THE UN HAS VOTED TO BAN NUCLEAR WEAPONS. THAT’S RIGHT, NATIONS THAT DO NOT CURRENTLY POSSESS NUCLEAR WEAPONS HAVE PLEDGED NOT TO DEVELOP THEM AND TO USE NUCLEAR POWER ONLY FOR PEACEFUL PURPUSES. SINCE “PEACEFUL PURPOSES” IS NOT DEFINED, IRAN SIGNED THE DOCUMENT. IRAN, WHICH AS ANYONE NOT SUPPORTING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION’S EQUALLY WORTHLESS DEAL KNOWS IS BUSY DEVELOPING NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

The Health Care Mess

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 17, 2017

         FIVE HUNDRED THIRTY-FIVE PEOPLE – THAT WOULD BE CONGRESS -- ARE DECIDING WHAT KIND OF HEALTH CARE YOU AND I ARE ALLOWED TO HAVE. DOES THIS MAKE SENSE?

Donald, Jr. and The Real Issue

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 14, 2017

         IT’S EASY TO MAKE JUDGMENTS IN RETROSPECT. DID DONALD TRUMP, JR. KNOW HE WAS MEETING WITH A RUSSIAN AGENT DURING LAST YEAR’S CAMPAIGN? I DOUBT IT. SHOULD HE? PROBABLY, IF HE HAD DONE A FULL BACKGROUND CHECK, BUT JUNIOR WAS NEW TO POLITICS AND, THUS, INEXPERIENCED IN SUCH MATTERS.

Health (S)Care

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 13, 2017

         LIBERAL DEMOCRATS ONCE DECRIED A SINGLE-PAYER HEALTH CARE SYSTEM WITH THE GOVERNMENT IN CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE AND DEATH. INCREASING NUMBERS OF DEMOCRATS ARE NOW FOR IT. BY SOME ESTIMATES IT WOULD COST $32 TRILLION AND PUT THE AMERICAN ECONOMY IN THE TANK.

New Evidence: School Vouchers Work!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 12, 2017

         THERE IS NEW EVIDENCE SCHOOL VOUCHERS ARE BENEFITTING CHILDREN.

RESEARCHERS FOCUSED ON INDIANA’S VOUCHER PROGRAM THAT NOW SERVES MORE THAN 34,000 STUDENTS. THE STUDY FOUND THAT STUDENTS USING VOUCHERS HAD DECLINES IN MATH AND ENGLISH FOR THE FIRST TWO YEARS AFTER LEAVING THEIR PUBLIC SCHOOLS. BUT THE LONGER THEY STAYED IN THEIR NEW SCHOOLS THE BETTER THEY DID – SURPASSING THEIR PUBLIC SCHOOL PEERS IN ENGLISH AFTER FOUR YEARS.

On Gard

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 11, 2017

         CHARLIE GARD IS THE BRITISH CHILD WHO IS BEING DENIED TREATMENT BY A LOCAL HOSPITAL FOR A RARE CONDITION THAT HAS AFFECTED HIS BRAIN AND ABILITY TO BREATH. BRITISH DOCTORS SAY THE TREATMENT THE CHILD’S PARENTS WANT IS EXPERIMENTAL AND PROBABLY WON’T WORK. THE PARENTS WISH TO BRING THEIR SON TO THE U.S. FOR TREATMENT. A COURT HEARING WAS SCHEDULED YESTERDAY AND AS I WRITE THIS NO DECISION HAS BEEN MADE.
