Politics in Perry Indictment

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 22, 2014

         THAT THE INDICTMENT OF TEXAS GOVERNOR RICK PERRY WAS ROOTED IN POLITICS HAS BEEN EXPOSED BY REPORTS THAT ONE OF THE GRAND JURORS IS A DEMOCRATIC PARTY OPERATIVE WHO WAS ATTENDING THE STATE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION IN DALLAS AT THE SAME TIME SHE WAS SERVING ON THE GRAND JURY.

Time To Fight As If We Are At War

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 21, 2014

         CAN THE ATROCITIES OF ISIS GET MUCH WORSE? YES THEY CAN. A MEMBER OF THE FANATICAL MUSLIM GROUP HAS BEHEADED A KIDNAPPED AMERICAN PHOTOJOURNALIST NAMED JAMES WRIGHT FOLEY AND IS THREATENING TO BEHEAD A SECOND AMERICAN IF PRESIDENT OBAMA DOESN’T HALT THE BOMBING CAMPAIGN.

Holder to the Rescue?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 20, 2014

         ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER TRAVELS TO FERGUSON, MISSOURI TODAY, FOR WHAT I DON’T KNOW. HOW IS HE GOING TO IMPROVE THE SITUATION?

The Perry Indictment Is a Political Farce

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 19, 2014

         THE INDICTMENT OF TEXAS GOVERNOR RICK PERRY BY THE LIBERAL TRAVIS COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW CRIMINALIZING POLITICS HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE CORROSION OF OUR POLITICAL DISCOURSE.

More on Fergsuon, MO

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 18, 2014

         THIS IS A FOLLOWUP TO MY COMMENTARY OF LAST FRIDAY ABOUT THE TROUBLES IN FERGUSON, MISSOURI. THE USUAL SCENARIOS ABOUT RACE AND THE POLICE, DIVERSITY AND DIVISION HAVE BEEN AMPLIFIED BY THE MILITARY WEAPONS SEEN ON THE STREETS.

         400 ARMORED VEHICLES, 500 AIRCRAFT AND 93,000 MACHINE GUNS HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO LOCAL POLICE BY THE PENTAGON; NOT TO MENTION THE INCREASING INTRUSIVENESS OF CAMERAS AND OTHER DETECTION EQUIPMENT, INCLUDING DRONES.

SHE SAYS SHE DIDN'T MEAN IT

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 15, 2014

         AFTER HER BLISTERING CRITICISM OF PRESIDENT OBAMA’S FOREIGN POLICY IN THE ATLANTIC MAGAZINE, HILLARY CLINTON CALLED THE PRESIDENT TO SAY SHE DIDN’T ACTUALLY MEAN WHAT SHE SAID, WHICH OF COURSE SHE DID. THEN IT WAS SAID THE TWO WOULD “HUG IT OUT” AT A PARTY WEDNESDAY NIGHT ON MARTHA’S VINYARD.

SAME SCENARIO, DIFFERENT TOWN

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 14, 2014

         THERE IS A CERTAIN TROUBLING FAMILIARITY ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE ST. LOUIS SUBURB OF FERGUSON, MISSOURI. WE’VE SEEN IT PLAY OUT EVER SINCE THE RACE RIOTS OF THE 1960S. HERE’S THE SCENARIO: BLACK PERSON IS SHOT, HUNDREDS RIOT AND LOOT STORES, RELATIVES CLAIM DEAD PERSON WAS A GOOD BOY AND NEVER DID ANYTHING WRONG, AL SHARTON AND JESSE JACKSON SHOWUP AND MAKE THINGS WORSE BEFORE THE FACTS ARE IN.

Robin Williams

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 13, 2014

         THE APPARENT SUICIDE OF COMEDIAN ROBIN WILLIAMS IS A DIVERSION FROM TERRORISM AND THE EBOLA VIRUS, BUT THAT’S WHAT COMEDY IS. IT DIVERTS OUR ATTENTION TO FUNNY THINGS SO WE CAN TEMPORAILY LAUGH AND AVOID THE SADNESS BROUGHT BY WAR AND DISEASE.

HILLARY CRITICIZES OBAMA FOREIGN POLICY

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 12, 2014

         THE TIMES I HAVE AGREED WITH HILLARY CLINTON ON ANYTHING ARE FEW, IF ANY. BUT IN AN INTERVIEW WITH ATLANTIC MAGAZINE THE FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE AND PROBABLE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE SAID OF PRESIDENT OBAMA’S FOREIGN POLICY: “GREAT NATIONS NEED ORGANIZING PRINCIPLES.” COMMENTING ON THE PRESIDENT’S PROMISE NOT TO DO “STUPID STUFF,” SHE SAID “NOT DOING STUPID STUFF IS NOT AN ORGANIZING PRINCIPLE.”

BOMBING IRAQ AGAIN

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 11, 2014

         PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS AUTHORIZED TARGETED AIR STRIKES IN IRAQ TO SAVE AN ANCIENT SECT KNOWN AS YAZIDIS AS WELL AS CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE BEEN TARGETED BY TERRORISTS KNOWN AS ISIL, OR ISIS. THE PRESIDENT ACTUALLY CALLED ISIS “TERRORISTS.”

         WHILE THIS IS WELCOME NEWS, WHAT’S REALLY NEEDED IS A COMPREHENSIVE STRATEGY FOR FIGHTING ISLAMIC TERRORISTS WHEREVER THEY THREATEN U.S. INTERESTS, WHICH IS PRETTY MUCH EVERYWHERE.
