Cal Thomas: What Trump should say Thursday night

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

When Donald Trump takes the stage Thursday night and accepts for the third time the Republican Party’s nomination for president, he faces an opportunity and a temptation.

The temptation is to launch a full-bore attack on Democrats, President Biden, the left and the media. The opportunity is to use the sympathy he has garnered since last ...Read more

Leftist Social Media Must Tone Down the Rhetoric!

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.” – politics/fromtheright/calthomas/s-3330593">Read more

Cal Thomas: Project 2025

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

One way to measure the power of conservative policy proposals is to monitor the reaction of the left.

The Heritage Foundation’s ideas for the next conservative president to implement must be good because liberals are hysterical in their opposition. And that’s because they directly challenge ...Read more

Cal Thomas: The Biden cover-up

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Anyone hoping the interview of President Biden by George Stephanopoulos of ABC News would allay fears by growing numbers of Democrats that the president is not mentally fit to serve another four years must be disappointed.

When asked repeatedly and in ...Read more

Supreme Court Protects All Presidents

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Put aside former president Donald Trump (an impossible task for some) and examine the Supreme Court’s majority ruling that protects any president from litigation for decisions and actions he (or she, but for the sake of this column I will use the male pronoun) has made ...Read more

Biden Claims to Know Right From Wrong

Supremes to Rule on Transgender Law

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

As if current Supreme Court cases were not controversial enough, the justices have accepted an appeal by the Biden administration“ seeking to block state bans on gender-affirming care for minors.” Notice that the ...Read more

My Questions for the Candidates Will Be Fair as Opposed to Tapper and Bash's!

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The debate between President Biden and former president Donald Trump Thursday night on CNN ought to be more than rehearsed answers and soundbites we’ve heard before. Polls show Americans are ...Read more

Who’s a ‘Threat to Democracy’?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

People of a certain age will recall a time when after an election the losing side would usually accept the results and initially give support to a new president during what was then called the “honeymoon” stage. Richard Nixon conceded to John Kennedy in 1960, although politics/fromtheright/calthomas/s-3294767">Read more

From Great Orators to Gobbledygook

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Once in America – and in some parts of the world – we were gifted by great orators, men and women who could by the power and content of their words inspire, motivate and sometimes unify their nations.

Today, we have politicians who mumble, slur their words, repeat themselves and in other ways make no sense. They neither inspire, nor unite. ...Read more

The Second Coming of the Late ’70s?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The 1970s are remembered for many things: the end of the Vietnam War, Richard Nixon’s resignation from the presidency, American hostages held for 444 days by Iran and disco (ugh).

In 1978, Pope John Paul II became leader of the Roman Catholic Church. In 1979, politics/fromtheright/calthomas/s-3285872">Read more

When You Never Have to Say ‘Sorry’

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The best jobs in Washington are the ones in which you never have to admit error and apologize. These jobs are mostly in government and the major media. While “Love means never having to say you’re sorry” (as a married man I know that’s not true), messing up in government means one can blame others, or feign ignorance. Most recently we ...Read more

Biden Border Order is Too Little, too Tate, and Too Political!

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

For more than three years President Biden and his Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas have told the country they do not have the power to stop the flow of migrants entering the country unlawfully unless Congress passes new laws. Funny how Biden had no problem using his power to cancel former President Trump’s border restrictions by ...Read more

Politicized Justice

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

A New Depth of Cynicism

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Despite what some Iranian leaders say to the gullible West, denying their intention to build nuclear weapons, Tehran’s pursuit of weapons-grade fissile material and the development of ballistic missiles to potentially deliver a nuclear warhead continues unimpeded.

Cal Thomas: What the ‘New Nixon’ could teach Donald Trump

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Fifty-six years ago in August 1968, Richard Nixon achieved what The New York Times called “the greatest reversal of fortune in American political history.” Times columnist James Reston went further, calling it “the greatest comeback since Lazarus.” This ...Read more

President Biden’s Disappointing Morehouse Speech

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The academic year is coming to an end, thankfully. It has been characterized by some of the worst antisemitism since the Nazi regime and demonstrations by campus (and non-campus) radicals, many of whom appear to have been indoctrinated by professors whose anti-American, anti-capitalism and anti-Jewish ideas were formed in the corrupt ...Read more

Cal Thomas: Two contrasting congressional days

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Warren Buffet is Wrong on Taxes

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Many people have made money by following the advice of Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett. His recommendations about which stocks to buy, which to sell and where to invest (or not) have earned him the “Oracle of Omaha” title. I prefer a modern cultural version: �...Read more

Cal Thomas: Trump outdoes himself with crude language

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

If you are the parent of young children, are you OK with your kids hearing former President Donald Trump’s language and putdowns, like the ones at his rally last Saturday in Wildwood, New Jersey?

One can hear a kid justifying his or her own swearing: “If Trump can talk like that, why can’t I?” Is this the way we want our children to be ...Read more
