MEMORIAL DAY 2014

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 26, 2014

         THIS IS THE LAST MEMORIAL DAY BEFORE THE WORLD OBSERVES THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE START OF WORLD WAR I. I’M READING A BOOK ON THE SUBJECT BY MAX HASTINGS CALLED “CATASTROPHE.” AND SO IT WAS. THE TOTAL NUMBER OF MILITARY AND CIVILIAN CASUALTIES IN THAT WAR WERE 37 MILLION. THESE INCLUDED 16 MILLION DEAD AND 20 MILLION WOUNDED, RANKING IT AMONG THE DEADLIEST CONFLICTS IN HUMAN HISTORY.

Eat Your Vegetables

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 23, 2014

         “EAT YOUR VEGETABLES” AND “TAKE YOUR MEDICINE” ARE FAMILIAR PHRASES USED ESPECIALLY WITH CHILDREN TO DO THINGS THAT ARE GOOD FOR THEM BUT THEY MAY NOT LIKE.

         AMERICA NEEDS TO BE TOLD THESE THINGS BY STRONG LEADERS. FOR TOO LONG WE HAVE SWALLOWED THE EQUIVALENT OF FOOD THAT ISN’T GOOD FOR US AND HAVE REFUSED TO TAKE THE MEDICINE OF SELF RELIANCE AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.

Primary Elections, What Now For Tea Party?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 22, 2014

         TEA PARTY CANDIDATES LOST IN MONDAY’S REPUBLICAN PRIMARY RACES ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND THE ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATES WON. THESE INCLUDE SENATE MINORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL IN KENTUCKY WHO EASILY BEAT A TEA PARTY CHALLENGER. IN GEORGIA, BUSINESSMAN DAVID PERDUE AND CONGRESSMAN JACK KINGSTON WILL FACE EACH OTHER IN A JULY 22ND RUNOFF.

         REPUBLICAN PARTY LEADERS ALSO GOT THEIR PREFERRED CANDIDATE IN THE OREGON SENATE RACE. IT WAS THE SAME IN IDAHO AND OHIO.

Holder Gets It Backwards On Race

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 21, 2014

         COMMENCEMENT SPEECHES ARE BEING DELIVERED ALL OVER AMERICA BY MEN AND WOMEN WHO PASSED THE POLITICALLY CORRECT TEST.

         AT MORGAN STATE UNIVERSITY, A BLACK COLLEGE IN BALTIMORE, ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER GAVE A PARTISAN ADDRESS THAT I’M SURE DID NOT INSPIRE GRADUATES. HOLDER LAMENTED THAT SIXTY YEARS AFTER THE LANDMARK BROWN VS. BOARD OF EDUCATION DECISION BY THE SUPREME COURT, ABOLISHING SEGREGATED SCHOOLS, THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS HAVE BECOME RE-SEGREGATED.

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 20, 2014

Hillary's Health

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 19, 2014

         FORMER BUSH ADMINISTRATION OPERATIVE KARL ROVE HAS ASKED WHETHER HILLARY CLINTON IS HEALTHY ENOUGH TO BE PRESIDENT. DEMOCRATS ARE CRYING FOUL.

         BILL CLINTON HAS COME TO HIS WIFE’S DEFENSE, SAYING SHE’S HEALTHIER THAN HE IS. GIVEN HIS TRACK RECORD, HE MAKES A BAD CHARACTER WITNESS. BILL ALSO SAYS HILLARY TOOK SIX MONTHS TO RECOVER FROM A BLOOD CLOT IN HER HEAD. THE STATE DEPARTMENT SAID IT WAS 30 DAYS.

A Change at The NY Times: So What?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 16, 2014

         THE MEDIA ARE FULL OF STORIES ABOUT THE OUSTER OF JILL ABRAMSON’S FROM HER JOB AS EXECUTIVE EDITOR OF THE NEW YORK TIMES.

Buffett Helps Kill Future Investors

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 15, 2014

         THE MULTI BILLIONAIRE WARREN BUFFETT HAS DONATED $1.2 BILLION TO ABORTION PROVIDERS LIKE PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

         BUFFETT’S OWN CHARITY, THE SUSAN THOMPSON BUFFETT FOUNDATION, IS NAMED AFTER HIS LATE WIFE, WHO WAS AN ABORTION SUPPORTER. IT’S DOMESTIC OPERATION IS HEADED BY PRO-ABORTIONIST TRACY WEITZ, PH.D. WEITZ HAS WORKED AT PLANNED PARENTHOOD. SHE ONCE DEFINED ABORTION AS “A MORAL ACTION UNDERTAKEN BY MORAL AGENTS.” THIS SOUNDS LIKE ORWELLIAN NEWSPEAK.

Sam vs. Tebow

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 14, 2014

         THE THIRD RAIL OF AMERICAN POLITICS USED TO BE SOCIAL SECURITY. NOW IT’S HOMOSEXUALITY.

         MICHAEL SAM, THE FIRST OPENLY GAY PLAYER DRAFTED BY THE NFL, IS BEING TREATED AS A HERO BY THE ELITES. WHEN MIAMI DOLPHINS SAFETY DON JONES TWEETED “OMG” AND “HORRIBLE” AFTER HE WATCHED SAM KISS HIS BOYFRIEND ON ESPN HE WAS QUICKLY DENOUNCED, FINED, SUSPENDED AND FORCED INTO AN EDUCATIONAL TRAINING SESSION REMENISCENT OF COMMUNIST RE-EDUCATION CAMPS.
