Are We Denying The Obvious?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 19, 2019

         HAVE YOU NOTICED, AS RUSH LIMBAUGH DID ON HIS SHOW TUESDAY, THAT NO ONE WANTS TO SPECULATE WHO MIGHT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE NOTRE DAME FIRE? THE FIRST WORD WAS IT WAS A CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT, EVEN BEFORE ANY INVESTIGATION HAD STARTED. ARE THEY TRYING TO COVER-UP SOMETHING?

         THE FACT IS SPECULATION IS WARRANTED GIVEN THE LARGE NUMBER OF CATHOLIC CHURCHES THAT HAVE BEEN BURNED AND DESECRATED ACROSS FRANCE IN RECENT YEARS, EVEN RECENT WEEKS.

Nortre Dame Cathedral

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 18, 2019

         YOU COULDN’T HAVE MISSED THE PICTURE. IT WAS POWERFUL AND ICONIC. IT MADE THE FRONT PAGE OF MANY NEWSPAPERS AND WEBSITES. IN THE TRAGIC BURNING OF NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL IN PARIS, THERE IT WAS, RISING ABOVE THE ASHES, SEEMING TO EMIT A LIGHT OF ITS OWN.

An Anniversary

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL17, 2019

         TODAY IS THE 35TH ANNIVERSARY OF MY SYNDICATED COLUMN. WHEN THE LOS ANGELES TIMES SYNDICATE INVITED ME TO BEGIN A COLUMN IT WAS AFTER A LENGTHY CONVERSATION THAT ENDED WITH ONE OF THE DECIDERS ASKING IF I WERE A CHRISTIAN. I HAD PRAYED THAT MORNING THAT GOD WOULD OPEN THIS DOOR AND IF HE DID I WOULD SEEK TO HONOR HIM.

Tax Refunds And Tax Cuts

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 16, 2019

         MANY PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING THEY DIDN’T GET A TAX REFUND THIS YEAR. QUITE A FEW HAD TO PAY THE IRS BY YESTERDAY’S DEADLINE. I DID, BUT THAT’S NOT THE WAY TO LOOK AT IT.

         PRESIDENT TRUMP’S TAX CUTS ALLOWED MANY TO KEEP MORE OF THEIR MONEY. LOOK AT YOUR PAYCHECK AND COMPARE IT TO PREVIOUS YEARS. MOST HAVE MORE TO SAVE, INVEST AND SPEND. THE CUTS HELPED FUEL THE BOOMING ECONOMY. THE STOCK MARKET IS AT RECORD HIGHS, MEANING STRONG GROWTH IN IRA AND OTHER ACCOUNTS.

"Caesar" And His Subjects on Tax Day

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 15, 2019

         TODAY AS JUST ABOUT EVERY TAXPAYER KNOWS IS THE DEADLINE FOR FILING FEDERAL INCOME TAXES. AT LEAST HALF THE COUNTRY KNOWS THIS BECAUSE WE ARE THE ONES PAYING THE TAXES. HALF THE COUNTRY PAYS NO INCOME TAX AT ALL. 

Tonight's Pro-Life Opportunity

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 12, 2019

         TONIGHT I AM SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE MINISTRIES. IT’S THE ANNUAL BANQUET FOR THE CAROLINA PREGNANCY CENTER IN SPARTANBURG, SOUTH CAROLINA. THE EVENT COMES AT THE TIME THE FILM “UNPLANNED” HAS BEEN RELEASED AND IS DOING WELL AT THE BOX OFFICE.

Pagan Education

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 11, 2019

         A FRIEND IS ABOUT TO SEND HER DAUGHTER TO A COLLEGE THAT IS DOMINATED BY THE POLITICALLY CORRECT AND LGBTQ CROWD. THE FRIEND IS A SERIOUS CHRISTIAN, BUT SHE IS PREPARING TO PLACE HER DAUGHTER AMONG PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT AND WHO ARE AGGRESSIVLY OPPOSED TO EVERYTHING SHE BELIEVES. I HAVE TOLD HER THE PEER PRESSURE FROM FELLOW STUDENTS AND FACULTY TO CONFORM WILL BE ENORMOUS. HER RESPONSE: I HOPE THEY HAVE GOOD CHRISTIAN GROUPS ON CAMPUS.

Plan To See "Unplanned"

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 10, 2019

         “UNPLANNED,” THE FILM ABOUT FORMER PLANNED PARENTHOOD DIRECTOR ABBY JOHNSON AND HER CONVERSION TO PRO-LIFE ADVOCATE MAINTAINED ITS TOP TEN POSITION IN THE SECOND WEEK AFTER ITS RELEASE. IT FINISHED NUMBER EIGHT AND WORD OF MOUTH IS SPREADING.

DHS Secretary Resigns, or Was Fired

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 9, 2019

         THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, KIRSTJEN NIELSEN RESIGNED – OR WAS PUSHED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP – SUNDAY NIGHT. IN A CURT TWEET, THE PRESIDENT THANKED HER FOR HER SERVICE AND NAMED AN ACTING DIRECTOR HE BELIEVES WILL BE TOUGHER ON SECURING THE BORDER.

And Now Trump's Taxes

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 8, 2019

         THE LEFT WILL STOP AT NOTHING – AND I DO MEAN NOTHING – TO BRING DOWN THE PRESIDENCY OF DONALD TRUMP AND UNDO THE RESULTS OF THE 2016 ELECTION.

         THE LATEST IS A HOUSE COMMITTEE THAT IS WEAPONIZING – IN THE WORDS OF A HEADLINE WRITER FOR THE WASHINGTON TIMES – AMERICA’S TAX LAWS. THE COMMITTEE WANTS SIX YEARS OF THE PRESIDENT’S TAXES, WHICH HE HAS VOWED NOT TO GIVE THEM AND FIGHT IN COURT.
