Beware a "False Dawn"

 

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 26, 2014

         BY all accounts, republicans should do well in this fall’s election. They could even regain a senate majority. WHAT THEY MUISTY GUARD AGAINST, AS FORMER BUSH AIDE PETE WEHNER HAS WRITTEN, IS A FALSE DAWN; THAT SOMEHOW VICTORIES IN OFF-YEAR ELECTIONS TRANSLATE TO VICTORY IN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS. THE PAST SEVERAL ELECTION CYCLES DISPROVE THAT NOTION.

Will to Pay

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 25, 2014

         HISTORY IS REPLETE WITH ATTEMPTS BY ONE COUNTRY TO INFILTRATE AND UNDERMINE ANOTHER, BUT NOT SO MUCH STORIES OF NATIONS THAT WILLINGLY COMMIT SUICIDE. THIS IS ONE SUCH STORY.

         LONDON’S DAILY TELEGRAPH REPORTS ISLAMIC LAW IS TO BE EFFECTIVELY ENSHRINED IN THE BRITISH LEGAL SYSTEM FOR THE FIRST TIME UNDER GUIDELINES FOR ATTORNEYS WHO WRITE “SHARIA COMPLIANT” WILLS.

The "Queen of Sheba" in China

 

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 24, 2014

         IT’S SPRING BREAK TIME FOR A LOT OF COLLEGE STUDENTS. FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA, HER TWO DAUGHTERS, HER MOTHER AND A RETINUE OF 70 AREN’T AT THE BEACH. THEY’RE IN CHINA, COURTESY OF THE TAXPAYERS.

         THE WHITE HOUSE LUDICROUSLY CALLS THIS QUEEN OF SHEBA JOURNEY “SOFT DIPLOMACY.” PRESS COVERAGE HAS BEEN BANNED, EXCEPT FOR THE CHINESE MEDIA, OF COURSE.

Spaced Out

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 21, 2014

         SOME OF YOU MAY HAVE WONDERED WHAT NASA IS DOING THESE DAYS AFTER PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS EFFECTIVELY GUTTED THE MANNED SPACECRAFT PROGRAM. THE ANSWER IS THAT IT IS GETTING INTO POLITICS.

         THE NATIONAL JOURNAL’S ALEX BROWN ALERTED ME TO THIS. HE WRITES THAT ACCORDING TO A STUDY PAID FOR BY NASA – MEANING WE PAID FOR IT WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS – THE UNITED STATES WILL COLLAPSE UNLESS IT DOES A BETTER JOB OF REDISTRIBUTING WEALTH.

Trivialities

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 20, 2014

         TOO MANY AMERICANS ARE FIXATED ON A MISSING PLANE AND NOT ENOUGH ON A MISSING FOREIGN POLICY.

         CNN IS GOING WALL TO WALL ON THE MISSING MALAYSIAN JETLINER AND MENTIONING ONLY AS AN ASIDE WHAT RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN HAS DONE TO CRIMEA. WHICH HAS LONGER LASTING IMPLICATIONS FOR THE WORLD?

Out of Nothing

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 19, 2014

         I AM ALWAYS AMUSED WHEN SCIENTISTS STATE THEIR CONCLUSIONS ABOUT HOW THE UNIVERSE CAME TO BE.

         THE LATEST COMES FROM A TEAM OF ASTRONOMERS WHO CONDUCTED STUDIES AT THE SOUTH POLE AND CONCLUDED THAT THE UNIVERSE GOT VERY BIG, VERY FAST, TRANSFORMING ITSELF IN A FRACTION OF AN INSTANT FROM SOMETHING ALMOST INFINITESIMALLY SMALL TO SOMETHING IMPONDERABLY VAST, A COSMOS SO HUGE THAT NO ONE WILL EVER BE ABLE TO SEE IT ALL.

Al Qaeda Warning

 

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 18, 2014

         HOW SERIOUSLY SHOULD A THREAT FROM AL QAEDA BE TAKEN? SERIOUSLY, I THINK.

         THE LATEST ISSUE OF AL QAEDA’S MAGAZINE, “INSPIRE,” FEATURES AN ARTICLE SUGGESTING CAR BOMBS BE USED TO ATTACK AMERICAN CITIES, AS WELL AS ABROAD. IT OFFERS THIS YEAR’S CONGRESSIONAL ELECTION AND THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION AS GOOD TIMES FOR MAXIMUM IMPACT. CHRISTMAS EVE AND NEW YEAR’S EVE ARE ALSO RECOMMENDED.

The Real St. Patrick

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 17, 2014

         HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY! HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW HIM? IF YOU’RE LIKE MOST PEOPLE, PROBABLY NOT AT ALL.

         THERE ARE MANY MYTHS ABOUT PATRICK. FIRST, HE WASN’T A SAINT IN THE CATHOLIC TRADITION. HE DIDN’T DRIVE SNAKES OUT OF IRELAND BECAUSE THERE WERE NO SNAKES. HE WASN’T THE FIRST EVANGELIST TO IRELAND. PATRICK WAS NOT EVEN IRISH. HE WAS A SCOT.

Susan B. Anthony

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 14, 2014

         ON WEDNESAY I WAS ASKED BY THE SUSAN B. ANTHONY ORGANIZATION TO “MC” AN EVENT THAT FEATURED AMONG OTHERS FOUR U.S. SENATORS AND THREE MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE. AS YOU MAY KNOW, SUSAN B. ANTHONY BACKS PRO-LIFE CANDIDATES FOR CONGRESS AND IS A MAJOR INTELLECTUAL AND POLITICAL FORCE, THE FLIP SIDE OF EMILY’S LIST, IT’S PRO-ABORTION OPPOSITE.

CIA Spying On Senate?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 13, 2014

         IT’S ONE THING TO SPY ON THE AMERICAN PUBLIC; IT’S APPARENTLY QUITE ANOTHER TO SPY ON THE UNITED STATES SENATE.

         SENATOR DIANNE FEINSTEIN, WHO CHAIRS THE SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE, HAS ACCUSED THE CIA OF SECRETLY REMOVING DOCUMENTS, SEARCHING COMMITTEE COMPUTERS AMD ATTEMPTING TO INTIMIDATE CONGRESSIONAL INVESTOGATORS BY ASKING THE FBI TO INVESTIGATE THEIR CONDUCT.
