National Emergency

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 18, 2019

         IT’S ANYONE’S GUESS WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S DECLARATION OF A NATIONAL EMERGENCY TO TRY TO SECURE MONEY TO FINISH BUILDING THE BORDER WALL. THE COURTS WILL DECIDE WHETHER THE CONSTITUTION ALLOWS HIM TO DO THIS. DIVERSE VOICES FROM SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI TO FOX NEWS JUDICIAL ANALYST JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO SAY IT DOES NOT. THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS IT DOES AND THAT FUNDS IN THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT BUDGET AND FROM SEIZED ASSETS, SUCH AS DRUG MONEY, CAN BE USED FOR THIS PURPOSE.

Who Reads Bills?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 15, 2019

 

THE SCENARIO IS AS PREDICTABLE AS IT IS FAMILIAR. MEMBERS OF CONGRESS COME UP WITH A LAST MINUTE BILL OF MORE THAN 1,000 PAGES WHICH FEW, IF ANY, HAVE TIME TO READ BEFORE THEY VOTE ON IT. UNLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP TURNS THUMBS DOWN ON THE MEASURE WHICH GIVES SOME MONEY FOR HIS SOUTHERN BORDER WALL, THE VOTING BY THE HOUSE AND SENATE WILL BE COMPLETED BY TONIGHT, AVOIDING ANOTHER GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN.

What Is Love?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 14, 2019

         UNLESS YOU ARE LIVING IN A CAVE OR HAVE NO WIFE OR GIRL FRIEND, YOU KNOW TODAY IS VALENTINE DAY.

         FLOWERS, CANDY AND CARDS ARE SUPPOSED TO DEMONSTRATE OUR LOVE. C.S. LEWIS WROTE ABOUT THE KINDS OF LOVE – FILIAL (FRIENDSHIP), EROS (PHYSICAL LOVE IN A MARITAL RELATIONSHIP) AND AGAPE LOVE, A LOVE FOR US WHICH COMES FROM GOD.

Labeling Democrats

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 13, 2019

         CONGRESSIONAL NEGOTIATORS REACHED A COMPROMISE MONDAY NIGHT ON A BILL THAT WOULD PROVIDE ABOUT 20 PERCENT OF WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WANTS FOR A WALL. WILL HE SIGN IT AND AVOID ANOTHER PHONEY GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY?

And Now The Southern Baptists

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 12, 2019

         AND NOW IT’S THE SOUTHERN BAPTISTS. TRACKING WITH THE PRIEST SCANDALS IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH COMES THIS.

“20 YEARS, 700 VICTIMS,” READS PART OF A HEADLINE REPORTING ON AN INVESTIGATION THAT FOUND YEARS OF SEXUAL ABUSE PERPETRATED BY HUNDREDS OF SOUTHERN BAPTIST CHURCH LEADERS AGAINST AN EVEN LARGER NUMBER OF VICTIMS.

Racism and Virginia

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 11, 2019

         FORGIVE ME FOR LAUGHING AT THE DEMOCRAT’S PROBLEM WITH RACE IN VIRGINIA. BOTH GOVERNOR RALPH NORTHAM AND HIS ATTORNEY GENERAL ARE IN TROUBLE OVER COLORING THEIR FACES IN THE PAST TO APPEAR BLACK.

         FOR DECADES, DEMOCRATS HAVE PAINTED REPUBLICANS AS RACISTS. NOW THEY ARE GETTING THEIR JUST DESSERTS.

NO MORE TRIBALISM

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 8, 2019

         ARE YOU AS TIRED OF IDENTITY POLITICS AS I AM? THERE MAY BE A FEW GLIMMERS OF HOPE.

         SENATOR KAMALA HARRIS, A DEMOCRAT FROM CALIFORNIA, IS AMONG MANY RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT. SHE IS THE DAUGHTER OF INDIAN AND JAMAICAN IMMIGRANTS. ASKED ABOUT IT, HARRIS SAID SHE ONLY WANTS TO BE KNOWN AS AN AMERICAN. THAT WAS REFRESHING TO HEAR.

POLITICS AND SHOWBIZ

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 7, 2019

         THERE IS ALWAYS SHOWBIZ IN POLITICS AND POLITICS IN SHOWBIZ. SUCH WAS THE CASE IN PRESIDENT TRUMP’S STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS TUESDAY NIGHT. LEFTIST FEMALE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WORE WHITE IN SUPPOSED SOLIDARITY WITH THE SUFFRAGETTES. THEY ARE A LITTLE LATE. WOMEN HAVE HAD THE VOTE FOR THE LAST CENTURY AND THE EMPLOYMENT RATE FOR WOMEN IS AT RECORD HIGHS. WHAT ARE THEY PROTESTING?

         THEN THERE WAS THE DRAMA OF THE BALCONY GUESTS, WHICH CAME OFF VERY WELL.

Our Annual Media Dinner/Prayer Breakfast

CAL THOMAS COMMEMNTARY FEBRUARY 6, 2019

         TONIGHT IS OUR ANNUAL DINNER FOR THE MEDIA IN CONJUNCTION WITH TOMORROW’S NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST.

Rough justice for Gov Northam

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 5, 2019

         BY THE TIME YOU HEAR THIS VIRGINIA GOVERNOR RALPH NORTHAM MAY HAVE RESIGNED OVER HIS 1984 YEARBOOK PICTURE FEATURING TWO MEN, ONE IN BLACKFACE AND THE OTHER IN A KKK OUTFIT. NORTHAM FIRST APOLOGIZED AND THEN IN A WEIRD NEWS CONFERENCE SAID NEITHER OF THE MEN IN THE PICTURE WAS HIM. DEMOCRATS HAVE DEMANDED HE RESIGN. THAT’S BECAUSE THE LEFT USES RACE AGAINST REPUBLICANS AND THEY DON’T WANT THAT STAIN ON THEM.
