Iran Says US Lost In Syria

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 13, 2014

         IRAN IS BRAGGING THAT IT HAS BEATEN THE UNITED STATES IN SYRIA. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? THEY ARE PROBABLY RIGHT.

         IN INTERVIEWS WITH THE GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER, IRANIAN OFFICIALS SAY THE U.S. HAD THE WRONG STRATEGY IN IRAN. IT TRIED TO TOPPLE BASHIR AL-ASAD AND IF IT HAD SUCCEEDED, THEY SAY, THE EXTREMISTS WOULD HAVE TAKEN OVER AND THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN CHAOS; AS THERE IS IN LIBYA WHERE THE U.S. HELPED TOPPLE MOAMMAR GHADAFFI.

The Gay Divorcers

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 8, 2014

         THE FIRST OPENLY GAY – AS THEY SAY – EPISCOPAL BISHOP, GENE ROBINSON, IS DIVORCING HIS SO-CALLED “WIFE.” YOU MAY RECALL THAT ROBINSON SPLIT THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH WHEN HE ANNOUNCED IN 2003 HE WAS GAY AND THEN MARRIED HIS LONGTIME PARTNER. HE REFERS TO HIM AS HIS HUSBAND.

         ROBINSON SAID THEY DIDN’T REACH THEIR DECISION LIGHTLY AND HAD ENTERED INTO COUNSELING AND MUCH THOUGHT. I’M SO GRATEFUL FOR THAT!

What Jesus Said About Praying In Public?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 9, 2014

         ARE YOU CELEBRATING THE SUPREME COURT’S 5-4 DECISION PERMITTING PRAYERS AT PUBLIC MEETINGS? I’M NOT, BUT FOR REASONS DIFFERENT FROM WHAT THE UNBELIEVERS SAY.

         THE CASE INVOLVED THE GREECE, NEW YORK TOWN COUNCIL. SINCE 1999 THEY HAVE BEGUN THEIR PUBLIC MEETINGS WITH CHRISTIAN PRAYERS. AFTER TWO PEOPLE FILED A LAWSUIT, THEY STARTED INCLUDING OTHER FAITHS, INCLUDING A JEWISH LAYMAN, A WICCAN PRIESTESS AND A MEMBER OF THE BAHAI’ FAITH.

Timeline

         TIMELINES ARE USEFUL WHEN ONE CONSIDERS HISTORY. THEY HELP SHOW HOW SEEMINGLY UNCONNECTED EVENTS HAVE LEAD TO THE COLLAPSE OF NATIONS.

Yucking It Up With Obama

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 6, 2014

         PERHAPS YOU HEARD ABOUT THE WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT’S ANNUAL DINNER SATURDAY NIGHT. I DIDN’T GO. I USED TO, BUT IT HAS BECOME AN EXERCISE IN NARCISSISM TO SEE WHO CAN BRING THE BIGGEST CELEBRITY GUEST.

         THE SO-CALLED A-LISTERS MOSTLY STAYED AWAY, DEMONSTRATING RARE GOOD TASTE. NBC’S TOM BROKAW STOPPED GOING A FEW YEARS BACK AND SO HAS THE NEW YORK TIMES. THE TIMES THINKS IT’S NOT GOOD FOR JOURNALISTS TO BE SCHMOOZING WITH THOSE THEY COVER. I AGREE.

The Racial Double Standard in America

 

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 2, 2014

         IN FOOTBALL, PILING ON CAN GET YOUR TEAM A PENALTY. IN POLITICS, PILING ON IS CONSIDERED SPORT.

         IN THE CONTINUING SAGA OF LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS OWNER DONALD STERLING, THE PILING ON CONTINUES. RACE IN AMERICA HAS BECOME AN INDUSTRY. THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO BENEFIT POLTICALLY AND MONETARILY FROM THROWING THE RACE CARD.

Why Do We Ignore What Works?

 

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 1, 2014

         FOR THE PAST MONTH I HAVE DONE SCORES OF INTERVIEWS AND MADE NUMEROUS APPEARANCES PROMOTING MY NEW BOOK “WHAT WORKS: COMMON SENSE SOLUTIONS FOR A STRONGER AMERICA.”

         IT ISN’T THAT WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WORKS. IT IS THAT TOO MANY POLITICIANS WON’T EMBRACE SOLUTIONS BECAUSE IT MIGHT COST THEM POLITICAL POWER.

Redeem The Clippers' Owner

 

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 30, 2014

         BY NOW YOU HAVE PROBABLY HEARD OF THE RACIST COMMENTS ALLEGEDLY BY THE OWNER OF THE LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS BASKETBALL TEAM, DONALD STERLING. TWO THINGS ABOUT THIS.

         FIRST HIS MUCH YOUNGER GIRLFRIEND CLEARLY SET HIM UP. SHE SURREPTITIOUSLY RECORDED HIM AND THEN RELEASED IT TO THE CELEBRTITY TMZ PEOPLE. THAT DOESN’T EXCUSE WHAT HE SAID, BUT STERLING WAS CLEARLY BLINDSIDED.
