Southern Baptists: Repent!

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Cover-ups of sexual misconduct, allegations of racism and intimidation of those who wish to speak their minds but can’t for fear of losing their jobs. It sounds like the dysfunctional ways of the world, doesn’t it?

These are just some of the politics/fromtheright/calthomas/s-2529500">Read more

In Pursuit of Wisdom

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

In an era of political correctness, virtue signaling and woke-ness, wisdom is in such short supply that when discovered it stands out like a beacon in a storm.

Wisdom should not be equated with information, of which we have plenty, though information is less informative than it is directive toward outcomes preferred by its providers. Scripture ...Read more

The Republican Dilemma

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Observing the ouster of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from her House leadership position and her criticism of former president Donald Trump, reminded me of a ’70s TV ad for Listerine mouthwash. The company attempted to use the product’s bad taste to ...Read more

Signs of the Times

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Signs have been a part of Middle East lore dating back to biblical times. People in the region take them seriously, which is why the signs emanating from the Biden administration are having serious ramifications.

Recent rioting on the Temple Mount and rocket attacks on Jerusalem and other civilian areas from Hamas bases in Gaza signal that ...Read more

The Infernal Revenue Service

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Thanks to the beneficence of the Internal Revenue Service — and the fallout from COVID-19 — we half of Americans who pay federal income taxes have been given until May 17 to file.

Since I began earning enough to file Form 1040 and associated forms, I have only known one person who prepared his own taxes. That was Bill Archer, a Texas ...Read more

Central Insanity Agency

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The Central Intelligence Agency is always looking to recruit new agents and advertising is one way it has done so in the past. The difference this time is in a newly created series of recruitment videos that reflect the spirit of the age in which we live, rather than appealing to abilities and patriotism.

The videos seem to suggest that the ...Read more

Power Back to the People

“Power to the People” was a chant used by anti-war and civil rights protesters in the ’60s. John Lennon wrote a song with that title in 1971. The idea flowed from the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution which begins, “We the people.”

The concept behind that ...Read more

The Chauvin Verdict

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The guilty verdict against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on all counts was correct, based on the evidence, but the theatrics leading up to that trial and after the jurors had made their decision was outrageous.

Demonstrations, riots and looting around the country since the death of George Floyd had to have influenced the jury,...Read more

Lost Liberties

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

If one can say the pandemic has had any positive side effect, it has been to help us focus on what the loss of liberties looks like. Such losses do not occur immediately but erode over time as people become increasingly comfortable with government claiming to know what is best for us.

The Biden administration is proceeding on a downward spiral ...Read more

I’m a Capitalist, Mr. President, But You’re Not

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Back in the day when “Saturday Night Live” was funny, Chevy Chase would open the “Weekend Update” segment by saying, “I’m Chevy Chase … and you’re not.”

That line came to mind over President Biden’s massive tax-and-spend proposals, which are unlike anything since FDR, after whom Biden appears to be modeling himself. The ...Read more
