Memorial Day 2019

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 27, 2019

         DICTIONARY.COM DEFINES MEMORIAL AS “SOMETHING DESIGNED TO PRESERVE THE MEMORY OF A PERSON (OR EVENT).”

         AS THE 75THANNIVERSARY OF D-DAY APPROACHES, THIS WOULD BE AN EXCELLENT TIME TO RECALL AND READ ABOUT THE SACRIFICES SO MANY MADE FOR THE FREEDOMS WE ENJOY TODAY. 

Bad Joke

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 24, 2019

         IT SOUNDS LIKE A BAD JOKE. THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, NANCY PELOSI, AND THE SENATE MINORITY LEADER, CHUCK SCHUMER, WALK INTO THE WHITE HOUSE FOR A MEETING WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP, SUPPOSEDLY TO FINALIZE DETAILS ON A PROPOSED MASSIVE INFRASTRUCTURE SPENDING BILL. BUT WITHIN MINUTES – PERHAPS SECONDS – THE PRESIDENT WALKS OUT BECAUSE PELOSI HAD SAID JUST MINUTES BEFORE WALKING IN THAT THE PRESIDENT IS GUILTY OF COVERING-UP INFORMATION CONGRESS WANTS.

Biden Flips on Abortion

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 23, 2019

         PARDON ME FOR INVOKING ONE OF MY LECTURE CIRCUIT LAUGH LINES BUT IN THE CASE OF JOE BIDEN’S FLIP-FLOP ON ABORTION IT SEEMS APPROPRIATE: THE ONLY POLITICIANS WITH CONVICTIONS IN WASHINGTON ARE IN PRISON.

         BIDEN TOLD A MEMBER OF THE ACLU THAT HE NOW FAVORS REPEAL OF THE HYDE AMENDMENT, THE LAW THAT PROHIBITS FEDERAL FUNDING OF ABORTIONS EXCEPT IN EXTREMELY RARE CASES.

The Ongoing Effort To Get Trump

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 22, 2019

         A FEDERAL JUDGE APPOINTED BY PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS RULED THAT HOUSE INVESTIGATORS HAVE A RIGHT TO EXAMINE PRESIDENT TRUMP’S TAX RECORDS. THIS, OF COURSE, IS ABOUT BEFORE HE BECAME PRESIDENT.

Why Socialism?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 21, 2019

         DO YOU READ WORLD MAGAZINE? YOU SHOULD. IT IS A CHRISTIAN MAGAZINE THAT COVERS STORIES AND ANGLES THE MAJOR MEDIA EITHER DISTORT, OR IGNORE.

         WORLD’S MAY 25THCOVER STORY IS ABOUT MIGRANTS FLEEING FROM SOCIALIST COUNTRIES. EDITOR MARVIN OLASKY VISITED DORAL, FLORIDA WHERE A WAVE OF VENEZUELAN MIGRANTS HAVE COME TO LIVE AND ESCAPE THE MADURO REGIME AND ITS ACCOMPANYING POVERTY, HUNGER AND DESPOTISM.

Weaving Us Together

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 20, 2019

         NEW YORK TIMES COLUMNIST DAVID BROOKS MAKES A GOOD POINT. HE NOTES HOW JOURNALISM TENDS TO FOCUS ON THE NEGATIVE – FROM PROBLEMS THAT NEVER SEEM TO GET RESOLVED (BY POLITICIANS AND GOVERNMENT) AND HOW POSITIVE THINGS ARE TOO OFTEN IGNORED.

         BROOKS WRITES OF AN ORGANIZATION CALLED ‘WEAVE THE PEOPLE.” THESE ARE PEOPLE ACROSS AMERICA WHO HAVE SUFFERED HURTS IN LIFE AND WHO ARE CONNECTING THESE WITH OTHERS, OFFERING THEM HELP AND ENCOURAGEMENT.

Killing Babies and the 2020 Campaign

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 17, 2019

         THE KILLING OF BABIES BEFORE AND EVEN AFTER THEY ARE BORN MIGHT BE AN ISSUE IN THE 2020 CAMPAIGN. BILLS TO RESTRICT ABORTIONS HAVE RECENTLY PASSED IN ALABAMA, GEORGIA AND MISSOURI, WITH THE MOST RESTRICTIVE SIGNED WEDNESDAY BY ALABAMA’S FEMALE GOVERNOR. 13 OTHER STATES HAVE PASSED OR HAVE BILLS PENDING THAT WOULD RESTRICT ABORTION AT VARIOUS STAGES.

Tariffs and China

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 16, 2019

         PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DOING SOMETHING FORMER PRESIDENTS HAVE BEEN RELUCTANT – EVEN SCARED – TO DO. HE’S STANDING UP TO CHINA, WHICH HAS TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF THE U.S., NOT ONLY WHEN IT COMES TO TRADE, BUT BY STEALING OUR MILITARY SECRETS AND TECHNOLOGY AND SPYING.

Another Bakery Fights Back

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 15, 2019  

         I LOVE THIS STORY AND THINK YOU WILL, TOO.

         OBERLIN COLLEGE IS AN OLD LIBERAL SCHOOL IN OHIO. IN RECENT YEARS IT HAS PRIDED ITSELF ON TEACHING “SOCIAL JUSTICE.” TAKING THEIR PROFESSORS SERIOUSLY, A MOB DESCENDED ON A LOCAL BAKERY THAT HAD THREE BLACK OBERLIN STUDENTS ARRESTED FOR SHOPLIFTING.

Positives Beat Negatives

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 14, 2019

         IT’S THE SECOND WEEK IN MAY AND THIS WEEK LIKE MANY BEFORE AND MANY YET TO COME WILL CONSIST OF RELENTLESS TRUMP-BASHING BY THE MEDIA AND THEIR DEMOCRAT ALLIES.

         CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS ARE INCREASING THEIR ATTACKS AGAINST THE PRESIDENT WITH SUBOENAS, CLAIMS OF OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE AND OTHER POLITICAL NONSENSE.
