K(NO)W JESUS, K(NO)W PEACE

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEBER 19, 2014

         THE INURED QUARTERBACK FOR THE WASHINGTON REDSKINS WORE A T-SHIRT TO AN AFTER GAME NEWS CONFERENCE THAT SAID “KNOW JESUS, KNOW PEACE.” IT WAS LETTERED IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE FIRST KNOW WAS SPELLED “KNOW” AND INSIDE THOSE LETTERS WERE THE LETTERS “N-O.” IN OTHER WORDS, NO JESUS, NO PEACE.

         THE NFL TOLD ROBERT GRIFFIN III THE T-SHIRT VIOLATED ITS RULES BECAUSE IT WASN’T AN OFFICIAL NIKE PRODUCT. HE WAS TOLD TO TURN THE T-SHIRT INSIDE OUT OR PAY A LARGE FINE.

Scotland Votes!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 18, 2014

         SCOTLAND VOTES TODAY ON WHETHER TO SEPARATE FROM THE UNITED KINGDOM. AMERICA HAD TO FIGHT A WAR FOR OUR INDEPENDENCE. THE SCOTS WILL USE THE BALLOT BOX.

         AS I WROTE IN MY COLUMN FROM SCOTLAND THIS SUMMER, THE SCOTS WILL BE MAKING A MAJOR MISTAKE IF THEY VOTE FOR INDEPENDENCE. THE DECISION WILL BE IRREVERSIBLE. IT’S A BATTLE BETWEEN MOSTLY AN OLDER GENERATION AND A YOUNGER ONE THAT BELIEVES FEELINGS AND IDEALISM TRUMP FACTS AND REALITY.

Christians Arrested In Saudi Arabia

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 17, 2014

         SAUDI ARABIA, WHICH SUPPOSEDLY IS WITH US IN THE FIGHT AGAINST ISIS, REPORTEDLY HAS ARRRESTED DOZENS OF CHRISTIANS, INCLUDING WOMEN AND CHILDREN, FOR HOLDING A PRIVATE PRAYER MEETING.

         ISLAMIST POLICE STORMED THE HOME OF AN INDIAN MAN AFTER THEY WERE TIPPED-OFF BY AN INFORMANT. THERE WERE 28 CHRISTIANS AND SINCE THEIR ARREST THEY HAVE NOT BEEN HEARD FROM. HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVISTS HAVE APPEALED TO THE U.S. GOVERNMENT TO INTERVENE AND HELP SECURE THEIR RELEASE.

What Coalition?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 16, 2014

Obama Losing Core Supporters

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 15, 2014

         THE LATEST ABC NEWS-WASHINGTON POST POLL FINDS PRESIDENT OBAMA AT NEW LOWS IN PUBLIC APPROVAL, ESPECIALLY AMONG THE CORE CONSTITUENCY THAT ELECTED AND RE-ELECTED HIM. AND THAT INCLUDES WOMEN.

         THE GIST OF RESPONSES FROM THESE PEOPLE IS THAT THE PRESIDENT DIDN’T LIVE UP TO THEIR EXPECTATIONS. THEIR EXPECTATIONS, WHICH WERE FED BY THE MEDIA AND OBAMA HIMSELF, WERE SO HIGH NO MORTAL COULD REACH THEM.

A Reluctant Warrior

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 12, 2014

         PRESIDENT OBAMA IS A RELUCTANT WARRIOR AND OUR ENEMIES HAVE TAKEN NOTICE. IN HIS SPEECH WEDNESDAY NIGHT THE PRESIDENT ANNOUNCED AIR STRIKES ON ISIS TARGETS IN IRAQ AND SYRIA AND SAID HE HAD PUT TOGETHER A “BROAD COALITION” OF NATIONS TO HELP IN THE FIGHT. HE DIDN’T SAY WHICH ONES, BUT YOU CAN BET SOME OF THEM ARE MUSLIM NATIONS THAT HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO TERRORISM.

Truett Cathy

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 11, 2014

         WHEN A GREAT SERVANT AND MAN OF GOD DIES, PEOPLE PAY ATTENTION. TRUETT CATHY WAS A MAN OF GOD.

         THE FOUNDER OF CHICK-FIL-A WAS ALSO A PHILANTHROPIST WHO BROKE THE STEREOTYPE OF THE RICH CONSERVATIVE BUSINESSMAN BY CARING FOR THE POOR, ESPECIALLY POOR CHILDREN.

The President's "Strategy" Speech

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 10, 2014

         PRESIDENT OBAMA TONIGHT MAKES ANOTHER SPEECH. LAST WEEK HE SAID HE DIDN’T HAVE A STRATEGY FOR DEALING WITH THE TERRORIST GROUP ISIS. TONIGHT HE WILL OUTLINE ONE AND TELL US IT WILL BE A LONG WAR. WE ALREADY KNEW THAT, DIDN’T WE? THE QUESTION IS: DOES THE UNITED STATES AND OTHER FREE NATIONS HAVE THE WILL AND THE STAYING POWER TO WIN IT? AND WHAT DOES WINNING MEAN?

Sending Troops - To Africa!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 9, 2014

         PRESIDENT OBAMA IS SENDING TROOPS TO FIGHT A DEADLY ENEMY. IS IT ISIS? NO, IT’S EBOLA. THE PRESIDENT IS SENDING AMERICAN FORCES TO AFRICA TO HELP FIGHT THIS DEADLY DISEASE. AT A TIME WHEN THE U.S. FACES FAR GREATER THREATS FROM TERRORISTS, WHY ARE AMERICAN TROOPS GOING TO AFRICA?

Guilty!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 8, 2014

         THE CONVICTION OF FORMER REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR BOB MCDONNELL OF VIRGINIA AND HIS WIFE MAUREEN ON MULTIPLE COUNTS OF PUBLIC CORRUPTION IS A TRAGEDY ON MANY LEVELS. I KNOW BOTH OF THEM, HAVE DINED WITH THEM AT THE GOVERNOR’S MANSION AND ATTENDED CHRISTMAS RECEPTIONS. I’VE INTERVIEWED HIM.
