My sentimental journey with Doris Day

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

It was Oscar Levant who uttered the famous line: "I knew Doris Day before she was a virgin."

In a way it was a backhanded compliment to a woman who represented in most of her film roles an image of chastity and virtue that was once mostly promoted in American culture, though not always ...Read more

By going back to the past, Biden will ensure that America's future will be dim

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Joe Biden, the leading Democrat in the overcrowded presidential sweepstakes (there are more of them running than horses in the recent Kentucky Derby), appears to want to take America back to the days of the Obama administration, which he was a part of for eight years. What would that look like?

Strong economy continues to be a problem for Democrats

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

How long can Democrats continue to claim the roaring economy should be credited to the Obama administration? How many, except the self-deluded, actually believe this?

Let me try to defend Kate Smith from the PC police

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

They've only just begun

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Objectivity, like Elvis, long ago left the building in Washington and so the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is being read and interpreted through mostly biased eyes.

Democrats, who had counted on Mueller to prove that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, were initially as crestfallen as they were on election night 2016. Still, ...Read more

The Democrat's God favors socialism

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

For the last 27 years, Democrats have been trying to win over evangelical Christians who last voted in large numbers for their party's presidential candidate, Jimmy Carter, in 1976.

At the 1992 Democratic National Convention, Al Gore gave it a go, but misquoted Scripture. In his acceptance ...Read more

Joe Biden suffers a political hit

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Why does it seems like the political equivalent of a Mafia hit job on Joe Biden, who is being whacked before a much-anticipated announcement of his presidential plans?

Most people who pay attention to such things have seen Biden's hands-on approach when it comes to women. Not until the last few days when two women have come forward to accuse ...Read more

If not an emergency, what is it?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The saga that is the Mueller Report is a consequence of what happens when you begin with a conclusion and then desperately seek evidence you hope will confirm it.

The New Zealand massacre is not the fault of Trump or the NRA

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Last week in New Zealand, a self-avowed white supremacist targeted two mosques and streamed his bloody killing spree on social media.
