A Day That Lives In Infamy

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 22, 2018

         I STILL REMEMBER THE DAY: JANUARY 22, 1973. I WAS READING THE NEWS ON NBC RADIO. I DIDN’T THINK MUCH OF IT AT THE TIME. THE SUPREME COURT HAD RULED 7-2 THAT REMAINING STATE LAWS AGAINST ABORTION VIOLATED THE CONSTITUTION. JUSTICE HARRY BLACKMUN, WHO WROTE THE MAJORITY OPINION, CREATED A “PNUMBRA” TO JUSTIFY HIS DECISION.

         THIS IS WHAT LIBERALS DO. IF SOMETHING ISN’T IN THE CONSTITUTION THAT ADVANCES THEIR AGENDA, THEY CREATE IT.

Withholding Money Is Good

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 19, 2018

         PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DOING SOMETHING THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE LONG AGO. FOR COUNTRIES AND ENTITIES RECEIVING U.S. TAXPAYER DOLLARS, THE PRESIDENT IS DEMANDING THEY CONFORM TO AMERICAN POLICY GOALS AND STOP BITING THE HAND THAT FEEDS THEM.

         TWO RECENT EXAMPLES. THE PRESIDENT HAS THREATENED TO CUT PAYMENTS TO THE GOVERNMENT OF PAKISTAN IF IT CONTINUES TO HARBOR TERRORISTS FROM AFGHANISTAN.

He's NOT Crazy!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 18, 2017

         THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES ISN’T CRAZY. WE NOW HAVE THAT OFFICIALLY FROM HIS DOCTOR, WHO SAID TUESDAY THAT IN ADDITION TO HIS EXCELLENT PHYSICAL CONDITION, THE PRESIDENT SCORED 30 OUT OF 30 ON A COGNITIVE TEST HE ASKED TO TAKE TO COUNTER ALLEGATIONS HE IS NOT IN FULL POSSESSION OF HIS MENTAL FACULTIES.

         WILL THIS STOP HIS CRITICS? OF COURSE IT WON’T. THEY WILL SIMPLY LOOK FOR SOMETHING ELSE TO USE AGAINST HIM AND THE ANTI-TRUMP MEDIA WILL FOLLOW.

Al Capone Lives!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 17, 2017

         WHEN KING SOLOMON WROTE IN “ECCLESIASTES” “THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN,” HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN THINKING AHEAD TO MODERN WASHINGTON.

         DEMOCRATS ARE THREATENING TO SHUTDOWN THE GOVERNMENT FRIDAY OVER DACA, THE DEFERRED ACTION FOR CHILDHOOD ARRIVALS.

Language and the President

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 16,2017

         DID HE SAY IT, OR DIDN’T HE? THE LANGUAGE WHILE SPEAKING WITH MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ABOUT IMMIGRATION AT A CLOSED MEETING. THE PRESIDENT CLAIMS HE DIDN’T SAY IT – AND I WONT REPEAT IT HERE, BUT STILL ACKOWLEDGED USING WJHAT HE CALLED “STRONG LANGUAGE.” YOU KNOW BECAUSE YOU’VE READ ABOUT IT.

Fixing Immigration

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 15, 2018

         HOW WOULD YOU FEEL ABOUT AN IMMIGRATION DEAL THAT ALLOWS CHILDREN OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO STAY IN AMERICA IF A WALL ACROSS OUR SOUTHERN BORDER IS BUILT FIRST? THIS WAS THE MISSING PIECE IN THE 1986 IMMIGRATION REFORM LAW. THEN, THE ILLEGALS GOT AMNESTY, BUT THERE WAS NO BORDER CONTROL AND MORE CAME. MORE ARE STILL COMING. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS RIGHT: WE MUST HAVE THE WALL.

Frustrated? Try God

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 12, 2018

         THERE IS A LITTLE VERSE IN ROMANS, CHAPTER EIGHT WHERE PAUL WRITES THAT GOD HAS BUILT FUTILITY INTO HIS CREATION “IN HOPE” THE CREATION WILL TURN TO HIM.

         IN MY DECADES OF LIVING IN THE WASHINGTON AREA, I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE PUT THEIR FAITH IN ALL SORTS OF THINGS, FROM POLITICIANS, TO SCIENCE, TO ACADEMIA, TO THEMSELVES.

A MEMO REVEALS MOTIVES OF DEMOCRATS

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 11, 2018

         IF THERE WAS EVER A DOUBT ABOUT THE MOTIVE BEHIND THE OPEN BORDERS CROWD, THIS SHOULD CLEAR THINGS UP.

         FORMER BILL CLINTON COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR JENNIFER PALMIERI CO-AUTHORED A MEMO FOR THE LIBERAL CENTER FOR AMERICAN PROGRESS THAT REFERRED TO HOW THE SO-CALLED “DREAMERS,” CHILDREN OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTRS, ARE A “CRITICAL COMPONENT OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S FUTURE ELECTORAL SUCCESS.”

Happy 110th Birthday, Dad!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 10, 2018

TODAY IS THE ONE 110TH ANNIVERSARY OF MY FATHER’S BIRTH. FOR THOSE OF A CERTAIN AGE, HE WAS NOT THE NEWSCASTER, LOWELL THOMAS.

CLINTON THOMAS WAS BORNING JANUARY 10, 1908, THE FIRST OF NINE CHILDREN, IN WASHINGTON INDIANA. THE FAMILY WAS WHAT WE WOULD CONSIDER POOR BY TODAY’S STANDARDS, BUT THEY WERE RICH IN THINGS THAT MATTERED.

NOT SO "GOLDEN" GLOBES

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 9, 2018

IT’S AWARDS SEASON AGAIN WHERE HOLLYWOOD LIBERALS PRESENT THEMSELVES AS RIGHTEOUS AND GIVE EACH OTHER AWARDS. OPRAH WINFREY GOT A LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD AT THE GOLDEN GLOBES SUNDAY NIGHT. SHE DELIVERED A FIREY SPEECH AGAINST SEXUAL HARRASSMENT THAT HAD THE RIGHTEOUS URGING HER TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT.
