Memorial Day, 2018

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 28, 2018

         THAT IT HAPPENS EVERY YEAR SHOULD NOT DIMINISH ITS SIGNIFICANCE. MEMORIAL DAY IS THE DAY WE REMEMBER AND HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE DIED IN SERVICE TO AMERICA.

         THIS ISN‘T ABOUT VETERANS, OR ACTIVE DUTY MEMBERS. WE HONOR THEM ON OTHER DAYS AND EVERY DAY. THIS IS ABOUT THOSE WHO LAID DOWN THEIR LIVES FOR THEIR FRIENDS AND THEIR FELLOW AMERICANS; WHO BELIEVE IN THE CAUSE OF FREEDOM – FOR THEMSELVES, THEIR BUDDIES AND THEIR COUNTRYMEN.

NFL To Players: No More Protests

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 25, 2018

         OWNERS OF THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE TEAMS HAVE FINALLY VOTED TO BAN ON-FIELD PROTESTS LIKE KNEELING DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. IT’S ABOUT TIME. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR TWO YEARS. THE OWNERS HAVE SEEN THE DROP IN TV RATINGS AND THE SMALLER CROWDS AT MANY OF THEIR GAMES.

         PLAYERS WILL BE TOLD IF THEY DON’T WANT TO STAND DURING THE ANTHEM, TO REMAIN IN THE LOCKER ROOM UNTIL IT’S OVER. I’M NOT SURE THAT WILL SATISFY FANS AND SPONSORS, BUT WE’LL SEE.

Dr. Bernard Lewis' Warning to the West

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 24, 2018

         PROFESSOR BERNARD LEWIS, WHO DIED LAST WEEK, WAS AN EXPERT ON ISLAM AND ITS GOALS.

         IN A 1976 ARTICLE IN COMMENTARY MAGAZINE, LEWIS WROTE THIS:

GOP Fears

The GOP’s fear factor

By Cal Thomas

Tribune Content Agency

When President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” he could not have foreseen today’s Republican Party.

A Culture Of Violence

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 23, 2018

         WHAT TO SAY ABOUT THE LATEST SCHOOL SHOOTING IN TEXAS THAT HASN’T BEEN SAID BEFORE? THE SCENARIOS ARE FAMILIAR. THE LEFT DEMANDS MORE GUN LAWS, NEVER SAYING HOW OR WHY A NEW LAW WOULD SUDDENLY RESULT IN A LAWBREAKER OBEYING IT. THE RIGHT DEFENDS THE SECOND AMENDMENT.

It's About Time

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 21, 2018

         UNDER THE CATEGORY “IT’S ABOUT TIME,” PUT THIS: THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT HAS INSTRUCTED ITS INSPECTOR GENERAL TO LOOK INTO WHETHER POLITICAL MOTIVATION TAINTED THE FBI INVESTIGATION INTO ALLEGED TIES BETWEEN RUSSIA AND THE 2016 TRUMP PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.

         THE ANNOUNCEMENT BY JUSTICE CAME A DAY AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP DEMANDED SUCH AN INVESTIGATION.

The GOP And Fear

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 21,2018

         PERHAPS YOU’VE HEARD THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS ONCE AGAIN TAKEN IN A RECORD AMOUNT OF MONEY LAST MONTH. IT’S BEEN THAT WAY FOR SEVERAL MONTHS. THE MONEY, OF COURSE, COMES FROM INDIVIDUAL TAXPAYERS, CORPORATIONS, FEES, HIDDEN TAXES, ETC. IN OTHER WORDS IT COMES FROM US.

12-1 Liberal Commencement Advantage

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FRIDAY, MAY 18, 2018

         IT’S COMMENCEMENT SEASON AT AMERICAN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS, DON’T YOU?

         IT MEANS LIBERAL COMMENCEMENT SPEAKERS. AND WHY NOT? THEY ARE THE PERFECT CAPSTONE TO FOUR OR MORE YEARS OF POLITICALLY CORRECT, LIBERAL INSTRUCTION.

WILL NORTH KOREA PULL THE PLUG ON TRUMP MEETING?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 17, 2018

         IS ANYONE SURPRISED THAT NORTH KOREA HAS PULLED OUT OF TALKS WITH SOUTH KOREA AND THREATENS TO DO THE SAME IN A PLANNED MEETING LATER THIS MONTH WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP IN SINGAPORE? I’M NOT SURPRISED.

Bad Bet

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 15, 2018

         THE SUPREME COURT HAS OPENED THE DOOR TO LEGAL SPORTS BETTING ACROSS THE COUNTRY BY INVALIDATING FEDERAL PROHIBITIONS ON UCH WAGERS. THE RULING WAS 6-3 WITH CONSERVATIVE JUSTICE SAMUEL ALITO WRITING THE MAJORITY OPINION.

THE RULING STRUCK DOWN THE 1992 PROFESSIONAL AND AMATEUR SPORTS PROTECTION ACT. THAT WAS A FEDERAL LAW THAT SAID STATES COULD NOT “SPONSOR, OPERATE, ADVERTISE, PROMOTE, LICENSE, OR AUTHORIZE” SPORTS GAMBLING.
