Hillary's Health

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 19, 2014

         FORMER BUSH ADMINISTRATION OPERATIVE KARL ROVE HAS ASKED WHETHER HILLARY CLINTON IS HEALTHY ENOUGH TO BE PRESIDENT. DEMOCRATS ARE CRYING FOUL.

         BILL CLINTON HAS COME TO HIS WIFE’S DEFENSE, SAYING SHE’S HEALTHIER THAN HE IS. GIVEN HIS TRACK RECORD, HE MAKES A BAD CHARACTER WITNESS. BILL ALSO SAYS HILLARY TOOK SIX MONTHS TO RECOVER FROM A BLOOD CLOT IN HER HEAD. THE STATE DEPARTMENT SAID IT WAS 30 DAYS.

A Change at The NY Times: So What?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 16, 2014

         THE MEDIA ARE FULL OF STORIES ABOUT THE OUSTER OF JILL ABRAMSON’S FROM HER JOB AS EXECUTIVE EDITOR OF THE NEW YORK TIMES. THE NEW YORKER SAYS IT IS BECAUSE SHE ARGUED FOR EQUAL PAY WHICH SHE CLAIMS SHE WAS NOT GETTING. ABRAMSON WILL BE REPLACED BY DEAN BAQUET, THE FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN EXECUTIVE EDITOR OF THE TIMES.

Buffett Helps Kill Future Investors

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 15, 2014

         THE MULTI BILLIONAIRE WARREN BUFFETT HAS DONATED $1.2 BILLION TO ABORTION PROVIDERS LIKE PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

         BUFFETT’S OWN CHARITY, THE SUSAN THOMPSON BUFFETT FOUNDATION, IS NAMED AFTER HIS LATE WIFE, WHO WAS AN ABORTION SUPPORTER. IT’S DOMESTIC OPERATION IS HEADED BY PRO-ABORTIONIST TRACY WEITZ, PH.D. WEITZ HAS WORKED AT PLANNED PARENTHOOD. SHE ONCE DEFINED ABORTION AS “A MORAL ACTION UNDERTAKEN BY MORAL AGENTS.” THIS SOUNDS LIKE ORWELLIAN NEWSPEAK.

Sam vs. Tebow

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 14, 2014

         THE THIRD RAIL OF AMERICAN POLITICS USED TO BE SOCIAL SECURITY. NOW IT’S HOMOSEXUALITY.

         MICHAEL SAM, THE FIRST OPENLY GAY PLAYER DRAFTED BY THE NFL, IS BEING TREATED AS A HERO BY THE ELITES. WHEN MIAMI DOLPHINS SAFETY DON JONES TWEETED “OMG” AND “HORRIBLE” AFTER HE WATCHED SAM KISS HIS BOYFRIEND ON ESPN HE WAS QUICKLY DENOUNCED, FINED, SUSPENDED AND FORCED INTO AN EDUCATIONAL TRAINING SESSION REMENISCENT OF COMMUNIST RE-EDUCATION CAMPS.

Iran Says US Lost In Syria

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 13, 2014

         IRAN IS BRAGGING THAT IT HAS BEATEN THE UNITED STATES IN SYRIA. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? THEY ARE PROBABLY RIGHT.

         IN INTERVIEWS WITH THE GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER, IRANIAN OFFICIALS SAY THE U.S. HAD THE WRONG STRATEGY IN IRAN. IT TRIED TO TOPPLE BASHIR AL-ASAD AND IF IT HAD SUCCEEDED, THEY SAY, THE EXTREMISTS WOULD HAVE TAKEN OVER AND THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN CHAOS; AS THERE IS IN LIBYA WHERE THE U.S. HELPED TOPPLE MOAMMAR GHADAFFI.

The Gay Divorcers

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 8, 2014

         THE FIRST OPENLY GAY – AS THEY SAY – EPISCOPAL BISHOP, GENE ROBINSON, IS DIVORCING HIS SO-CALLED “WIFE.” YOU MAY RECALL THAT ROBINSON SPLIT THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH WHEN HE ANNOUNCED IN 2003 HE WAS GAY AND THEN MARRIED HIS LONGTIME PARTNER. HE REFERS TO HIM AS HIS HUSBAND.

         ROBINSON SAID THEY DIDN’T REACH THEIR DECISION LIGHTLY AND HAD ENTERED INTO COUNSELING AND MUCH THOUGHT. I’M SO GRATEFUL FOR THAT!

What Jesus Said About Praying In Public?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 9, 2014

         ARE YOU CELEBRATING THE SUPREME COURT’S 5-4 DECISION PERMITTING PRAYERS AT PUBLIC MEETINGS? I’M NOT, BUT FOR REASONS DIFFERENT FROM WHAT THE UNBELIEVERS SAY.

         THE CASE INVOLVED THE GREECE, NEW YORK TOWN COUNCIL. SINCE 1999 THEY HAVE BEGUN THEIR PUBLIC MEETINGS WITH CHRISTIAN PRAYERS. AFTER TWO PEOPLE FILED A LAWSUIT, THEY STARTED INCLUDING OTHER FAITHS, INCLUDING A JEWISH LAYMAN, A WICCAN PRIESTESS AND A MEMBER OF THE BAHAI’ FAITH.

Timeline

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 7, 2014

         TIMELINES ARE USEFUL WHEN ONE CONSIDERS HISTORY. THEY HELP SHOW HOW SEEMINGLY UNCONNECTED EVENTS HAVE LEAD TO THE COLLAPSE OF NATIONS.

Yucking It Up With Obama

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 6, 2014

         PERHAPS YOU HEARD ABOUT THE WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT’S ANNUAL DINNER SATURDAY NIGHT. I DIDN’T GO. I USED TO, BUT IT HAS BECOME AN EXERCISE IN NARCISSISM TO SEE WHO CAN BRING THE BIGGEST CELEBRITY GUEST.

         THE SO-CALLED A-LISTERS MOSTLY STAYED AWAY, DEMONSTRATING RARE GOOD TASTE. NBC’S TOM BROKAW STOPPED GOING A FEW YEARS BACK AND SO HAS THE NEW YORK TIMES. THE TIMES THINKS IT’S NOT GOOD FOR JOURNALISTS TO BE SCHMOOZING WITH THOSE THEY COVER. I AGREE.
