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.

Back To School For Imigrants

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 8, 2014

         IT’S NEARLY BACK TO SCHOOL TIME FOR MILLIONS OF AMERICAN CHILDREN. ADS ARE APPEARING FOR CLOTHES AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES. BUT WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE ESTIMATED 50,000 UNACCOMPANIED MINORS WHO MADE IT ACROSS THE MEXICAN BORDER? MANY HAVE NO PARENTS IN THE U.S. MOST DON’T SPEAK ANY ENGLISH.

Americans Are Depressed

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 7, 2014

         SIX OUT OF TEN AMERICANS ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE STATE OF AMERICA, MORE THAN 70 PERCENT BELIEVE WE’RE HEADED IN THE WRONG DIRECTION AND NEARLY 80 PERCENT ARE DOWN ON OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM. OH AND PRESIDENT OBAMA’S APPROVAL RATINGS HAVE HIT AN ALL-TIME LOW, ACCORDING TO THE LATEST NBC NEWS/WALL STREET JOURNAL POLL.

         BEFORE REPUBLICANS GET TOO COCKY, THE POLL SHOWS ONLY 14 PERCENT APPROVE OF THE JOB CONGRESS IS DOING, OR MORE ACCURATELY NOT DOING.

Nixon Is Not The Only One

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 6, 2014

         FORTY YEARS AGO THIS WEEK RICHARD NIXON RESIGNED THE PRESIDENCY.

         NIXON WAS A DEEPLY FLAWED AND ANGRY MAN. HE WANTED TO TAKE REVENGE ON HIS ENEMIES, EVEN COMPILING A LIST WITH THE NAMES OF MEDIA, CLERGY AND ACADEMIC TYPES HE BELIEVED HATED HIM. HE WOULD HATE THEM BACK AND IT CRUSHED HIM IN THE END.

Victory, Not Cease Fire!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 5, 2014

         THE WEST AND THE IRRELEVANT UN HAVE BEEN PUSHING FOR A CEASE FIRE BETWEEN ISRAEL AND THE HAMAS TERRORIST GROUP IN GAZA. WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE BACKED WAS THE DEFEAT OF HAMAS AND VICTORY FOR ISRAEL.

Go See "The Giver"

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 4, 2014

         I RARELY GO TO MOVIES BECAUSE I DON’T LIKE THE LANGUAGE AND NUDITY IN MOST OF THEM. BUT ONE FILM I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. IT IS CALLED “THE GIVER” AND IT STARS MERYL STREEP, JEFF BRIDGES, TAYLOR SWIFT AND KATIE HOLMES.
