New "Gun Control" Law In New Zealand

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 25, 2019

         THE PRIME MINISTER OF NEW ZEALAND HAS ORDERED A BAN ON SEMI AUTOMATIC WEAPONS OF THE TYPE USED BY A WHITE SUPREMICIST TO SLAUGHTER 50 PEOPLE AND WOUND MANY OTHERS AT TWO MOSQUES IN CHRISTCHURCH.

         SHE SAYS THE DIRECTIVE WILL ALSO OFFER A BUY-BACK OPPORTUNITY FOR CURRENT OWNERS OF SUCH WEAPONS AND THOSE WHO REFUSE TO TURN THEM IN WILL RISK PROSECUTION.

Harsh Words Stir Up Anger

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 22, 2019

         DID YOU READ MY NEWSPAPER COLUMN YESTERDAY, THE ONE ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ATTACK ON THE LATE JOHN MCCAIN AND HIS RECURRING ANGER ABOUT ALMOST EVERYTHING? IF NOT, GO TO MY WEBPAGE CALTHOMAS.COM AND CLOCK ON COLUMNS.

         I QUOTED PROVERBS 15:1 – “A SOFT ANSWER TURNS AWAY WRATH, BUT A HARSH WORD STIRS UP ANGER.”

False Prophecies

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 21, 2019

         “THERE’S NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN,” WRITES SOLOMON IN ECCLESIASTES. HE MIGHT HAVE LAUGHED AT THIS STORY AND SAID, “I TOLD YOU SO.”

         THE YEAR WAS 1989. A SENIOR UNITED NATIONS ENVIRONMENTAL OFFICIAL PREDICTED ENTIRE NATIONS COULD BE WIPED FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH BY RISING SEA LEVELS IF THE GLOBAL WARMING TREND WAS NOT REVERSED BY THE YEAR 2000. HE PREDICTED “ECO-REFUGEES”, COSTAL FLOODING AND CROP FAILURES.

Character Trumps All

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 20, 2019

         PRESIDENT TRUMP MADE A RARE APPARANCE AT A CHURCH SUNDAY. IT WAS ST. JOHN’S EPISCOPAL, ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THE SERMON, BUT IT PROBABLY WAS NOT BASED ON “A SOFT ANSWER TURNS AWAY WRATH.” BEFORE AND AFTER CHURCH THE PRESIDENT INDULGED IN TWO DOZEN TWEETS, MOST OF THEM INSULTS OF THE LIVING AND AT LEAST ONE DEAD PERSON.

Less Freedom For You If Dems Win

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 19, 2019

         WHAT IS THE ONE THING ALL THE ANNOUNCED DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES HAVE IN COMMON? I’M NOT TALKING SO MUCH ABOUT WHAT YOU MIGHT EXPECT – HIGHER TAXES, MORE SPENDING, INCREASED REGULATION, UNRESTRICTED ABORTION, LIBERAL JUDGES, AND LGBTQ RIGHTS. THOSE ARE GIVENS.

         WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT IS FREEDOM -- INDIVIDUAL AND NATIONAL. NONE OF THE CANDIDATES SPEAK OF REDUCING THE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT IN OUR LIVES THAT WE MIGHT BE UNLIMITED IN OUR PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.

Murder Is Murder

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 18, 2019

          THE MURDER OF AT LEAST 49 PEOPLE AND WOUNDING OF NEARLY THAT MANY OTHERS IN A MOSQUE IN CHRIST CHURCH NEW ZELAND LAST FRIDAY WAS A TERRORIST ACT. TERRORISM IS TERRORISM NO MATTER WHO COMMITS IT, AND NO MATTER THE REASON.

The Ides of March: Beware the Politician

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 15, 2019

         MARCH 15 IS KNOWN AS THE IDES OF MARCH, A PHRASE USED BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE IN THE DRAMATIC MOMENT WHEN BRUTUS STABBED JULIUS CAESAR ON THAT DAY.

         THAT WASN’T ITS INITIAL MEANING – LOOK IT UP – BUT IT SERVES FOR TODAY’S COMMENTARY. BEWARE THE POLITICIAN WHO PROMISES YOU ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING FOR YOUR VOTE, BUT CAN’T DELIVER.

University Scam

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 14, 2019

         FEDERAL AUTHORITIES HAVE ARRESTED AND ARE CHARGING MORE THAN 40 PEOPLE WITH AN ELABORATE SCAM INVOLVING SPECIAL TREATMENT AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO CIRCUMVENT COLLEGE ADMISSION STANDARDS AT SEVERAL ELITE UNIVERSITIES. THE ACCUSED INCLUDE TWO PROMINENT TV ACTRESSES.

         SOME OF THE STUDENTS WERE PLACED ON SPORTS TEAMS WITHOUT THE SKILLS REQUIRED FOR THOSE SPORTS. SOME ALLEGEDLY FAKED INJURIES AND WERE PUTOFF THE TEAMS, BUT NOT OUT OF THE UNIVERSITIES.

No Impeachment (Yet)

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 13, 2019

         SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI SAYS SHE’S NOT FOR IMPEACHING PRESIDENT TRUMP. IMPEACHMENT, SHE SAYS, WOULD DIVIDE THE COUNTRY UNLESS IT IS BIPARTISAN AND EVIDENCE COMES TO LIGHT THAT IS SO EGREGIOUS IT CAN’T BE IGNORED.

Capitalism "Irredeemable"?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 12, 2019

         SHE’S AT IT AGAIN. EVERY DAY REPRESENTATIVE ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ SAYS SOMETHING NEGATIVE ABOUT AMERICA AND ITS ECONOMY.

         OVER THE WEEKEND AT A CONFERENCE IN AUSTIN, TEXAS, OCASIO- CORTEZ CALLED CAPITALISM “IRREDEEMABLE.” 

        THE SELF-DESCRIBED DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST SAID CAPITALISM VALUES PROFIT OVER PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT.
