Liberals are are only about destroying the president and grabbing power

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Is Europe awakening to the threat?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Much of Europe was asleep, or in denial, when the Nazis took power and began rebuilding their military in violation of the Versailles Treaty that brought World War I to an end. Now, after years of virtually unlimited migration from predominately North African and other Muslim regions, some European nations are awakening to what this could mean ...Read more

Back to the Constitution

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy from the U.S. Supreme Court is about to bring a 60-year battle to a head.

For decades the country has witnessed a fight between those who believe the Constitution speaks for itself and others who believe it says whatever the judges think it says, or even should say.

Already, the left is apoplectic. ...Read more

What happpened at the Red Hen is akin to bigotry

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

As a longtime resident of Virginia, I am well aware of its sordid history when it comes to slavery, racism and discrimination.

The politics behind separation anxiety

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Bias and the beholder

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Would you consider a jihadist biased against Jews? Could a member of a white supremacist group be accused of bias against non-whites?

The Justice Department's inspector general, Michael Horowitz, and FBI Director Christopher Wray claim the 500-plus-page report found no "documented" ...Read more

A tribute to Charles Krauthammer

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

I have often thought that tributes to those we love are best made when the object of our affection is still with us, rather than at their funerals.

I do not know Charles Krauthammer well, though we would occasionally see each other at Fox News when I worked there and at Washington Nationals ...Read more

Lessons for the Trump-Kim summit

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The unprecedented, historic and weird summit (Dennis Rodman might be there) between President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un, scheduled to begin Tuesday (today), if there are no surprises, could produce the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, or just more of the same lies and dissembling from North Korea we have seen before.

These ...Read more

The politics of cake

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Nothing appears beyond the reach of the social engineers, not even cake.

Forget racism; When will we see an end to leftist insults?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

We've come a long way from harmless playground jibes like "your mother wears combat boots," to those of today from the likes of Samantha Bee and other leftist "entertainers" who say things about President Trump and his family that are so vulgar they can't be printed in a newspaper or quoted on television.

Some of President Trump's critics blame...Read more

Ireland wrongly decides to allow murder of the unborn

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The scientific, moral and theological battle between life as an "endowed unalienable" right and the evolutionary view that we are just material and energy shaped by pure chance in a random universe with no author of life, no purpose for living and no destination after we die has been won in Ireland by the evolutionists.

Once strongly Catholic ...Read more

The NFL isn't through

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

It took two years, boycotts by fans, declining TV ratings, growing alarm among advertisers, a drop in the sale of gear and especially a public shaming by President Trump, but the owners of NFL teams have finally decided their players will not be allowed to kneel or make other protests during the playing of the national anthem.

The NFL Players ...Read more

Republicans need to look to Democrats for courage

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

When President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously said, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself," he could not have foreseen today's Republican Party.

The coarsening of political language

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

CANBERRA, Australia -- Here in Australia, "Question Time" has long been one of my favorite exercises of parliamentary democracy. The prime minister and government ministers appear before other elected members in support of their policies, while the opposition asks pointed and sometimes funny questions in an effort to belittle those policies.

At...Read more

Self-serving, bitter Hilliary continues to rant against Trump

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

MELBOURNE, Australia -- When you hear "world tour" you usually think of superstars performing concerts in various cities for adoring fans. Not so with the presidentially deprived, entitlement-driven Hillary Clinton.

One at a time
