TRUMP, KIM AND GOD

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 26, 2017

         SO FAR IT’S ONLY A WAR OF WORDS BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND NORTH KOREAN DICTATOR KIM JONG-UN. BUT WHAT IF IT BECOMES A REAL WAR? WHAT THEN?

HEALTH CARE AND TAX CUTS

CALTHOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 25, 2017

         THERE IS A SAMENESS ABOUT WASHINGTON THAT IS IRRITATING. HIGH DRAMA OVER WHETHER MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WILL VOTE TO GIVE PEOPLE WHO EARN THE MONEY AN OPPORTUNITY TO KEEP MORE OF IT THROUGH A TAX CUT AND ANOTHER MEASURE TO REPEAL AND REPLACE OBAMACARE.

The Establishment

CAL THOMAS COMENTARY SEPTEMBER 22, 2017

         YOU HAVE HEARD THE WORDS USED, ESPECIALLY BY CONSERVATIVES: THE ESTABLISHMENT.

         HERE’S HOW DICTIONARY.COM DEFINES “ESTABLISHMENT”: “THE EXISITING POWER STRUCTURE IN SOCIETY; THE DOMINANT GROUPS IN SOCIETY AND THEIR CUSTOMS OR INSTITUTIONS.”

UN Speech Reaction

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 21, 2017

         SOMETIMES YOU CAN GAUGE THE SUCCESS OF A SPEECH BY HOW OPPONENTS REACT.

         THAT WAS THE CASE WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ADDRESS TUESDAY TO THE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY. I LOVED HOW THE VENEZUELAN AMBASSADOR REACTED. HE SAID TRUMP’S CRITICISM OF HIS COUNTRY, ITS DICTATORSHIP AND RUINED ECONOMY SOUNDED LIKE RONALD REAGAN IN THE 1980S. MANY TAKE THAT AS A COMPLIMENT.

The UN: Useless Or Useful?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 20, 2017

         DURING LAST YEAR’S PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN, CANDIDATE DONALD TRUMP CALLED THE UNITED NATIONS “USELESS.” NOW HE HAS PIVOTED AND SAYS IT DOES SOME GOOD WORK, BUT NEEDS REFORM. HE ALSO WANTS OTHER NATIONS TO PAY MORE TO SUPPORT THE UN. THE UNITED STATES CURRENTLY PAYS ABOUT ONE-QUARTER OF THE AGENCY’S BUDGET.

The Pathetic Emmy Awards Show

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 19, 2017

         THE EMMY AWARDS SHOW SUNDAY NIGHT WAS PREDICTABLE ATHREE HOUR ANTI-TRUMP POLITICAL FESTIVAL THAT ALSO FEATURED SELF-CONGRATULATORY STATEMENTS ABOUT HOMOSEXUALS AND OTHER FORMS OF WHAT WAS ONCE CONSIDERED ABHORRENT BEHAVIOR.

         PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS PORTRAYED AS A NAZI-LOVING, LYING, HYPOCRITICAL, WHITE SUPREMICIST, RACIST, ISLAMOPHOBIC PIG.

"The Vietnam War"

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 18, 2017

         LAST NIGHT ON PBS WAS THE FIRST INSTALLMENT OF AN 18 HOUR, 10-PART EPISODE ON THE VIETNAM WAR. FOR THOSE OF US OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER THE DIVISIONS AND THE DECISIONS THAT WERE LATER REVEALED AS STRICTLY POLITICAL, THIS SERIES IS NOT ONLY A NEEDED TONIC, IT IS A NEEDED REMINDER THAT THE UNITED STATES CANNOT IMPOSE DEMOCRACY AND FREEDOM ON OTHER COUNTRIES. THEY MUST CHOOSE FOR THEMSELVES.

Cut Taxes, Yes, But Also Spending

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 15, 2017

         PRESIDENT TRUMP IS GOING TO CAMPAIGN FOR HIS TAX CUT PROPOSAL. THAT’S WHAT RONALD REAGAN DID. YOU HAVE TO TAKE YOUR POLICIES TO THE PEOPLE AND NOT THINK THAT BY STAYING IN WASHINGTON, MAKING SPEECHES AND HOLDING NEWS CONFERENCES, IT WILL BE ENOUGH. IT ISN’T.

Hurricane Relief Gets Political

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 14, 2017

         WHY MUST EVERYTHING BE POLITICAL? WHY CAN’T HURRICANE RELIEF BE NONPARTISAN?

         LAST NIGHT THERE WAS A TELETHON TO RAISE MONEY FOR PEOPLE AFFECTED BY THE RECENT HURRICANCES. STEVIE WONDER SET THE TONE WHEN HE SAID, “ANYONE WHO BELIEVES THAT THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS GLOBAL WARMING MUST BE BLIND OR UNINTELLIGENT.” WONDER IS BLIND PHYSICALLY AND IS NOT A NOTED CLIMATOLOGIST.

What Is Normal?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 13, 2017

           WHAT IS NORMAL? THE STANDARDS FOR NORMAL ARE QUICKLY EVAPORATING. PEOPLE WHO HOLD TO ANCIENT BIBLICAL TRUTHS ARE DEMEANED AS BACKWARD AND BIGOTED. SOME CHURCH LEADERS IN ENGLAND HAVE RECENTLY SAID THE CHURCH HAD BETTER CATCH UP WITH THE TIMES. IF THAT WERE SO, WE WOULDN’T NEED THE CHURCH BECAUSE THE TIMES WOULD DEFINE NORMALCY.
