Needed: Regime Change in Iran

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Every approach to curtailing Iran from its threats and behavior toward Israel and other countries has failed.

In 2023, the Biden administration ...Read more

A Taxing Time

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Was it as bad for you as it was for me? Sending Washington money we earn, but Washington doesn’t, I mean?

It’s not just being part of half the nation that pays taxes while the other half doesn’t that bothers me. It’s the waste and unnecessary programs and agencies that have long outlived whatever usefulness they once had (if they were ...Read more

Trump’s Abortion Statement

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Donald Trump issued a lengthy statement on abortion this past Monday. It is the latest of several positions he has taken on an issue that continues to be hotly debated. Each statement is supposedly a matter of Trump’s “conviction,” though some...Read more

Repeat, Repeat, Repeat

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Repetition while teaching children is a necessary tool that allows them to absorb information and to build on it for future understanding. It is why my teachers required repeating times tables and words in language class.

When it comes to the Middle East, repetition has been unsuccessful in causing Europeans and many in America to accept ...Read more

When Will It End?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Another day, another dead New York City police officer, another grieving widow.

The familiarity of these incidents should breed more than contempt. Instead, we get meaningless condemnations from politicians who are responsible for putting district attorneys in office that do not protect the public. Too many of them release career criminals, ...Read more

Cal Thomas: One more try at reducing the debt

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

“Neither a borrower nor a lender be.”– Polonius to his son Laertes in “Hamlet”

It may be too late given the number of Americans who have willingly allowed themselves to become dependent on government more than themselves, but it’s worth trying.

Our $34 trillion debt is ...Read more

Checking the Black Box

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Two men with decidedly different political outlooks have been my go-to sources on race in America. They are Dr. Thomas Sowell of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr., professor and director of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard University.

Dr. Gates has just published ...Read more

Moscow Massacre: Could It Happen Here?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

A mass shooting at a concert hall in Moscow killed more than 130 people. With many others seriously or gravely wounded the number of dead is likely to rise.

The Islamic state released a statement claiming “credit” for the incident. Eleven politics/fromtheright/calthomas/s-3176825">Read more

Abortion and the GOP

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The Biden administration and Democrats generally are under water in polling that has consistently shown voters are displeased with their performance on the economy, foreign policy and virtually everything else except one issue: abortion.

The president and Democrats up for re-election in Congress believe they can ride this single issue to ...Read more

Cal Thomas: The smell of mendacity

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

“What's that smell in this room? Didn’t you notice it, B rick? Didn't you notice a powerful and obnoxious odor of mendacity in this room? There ain't nothin' more powerful than the odor of mendacity. You can smell it. It smells like death.”– (Big Daddy inpolitics/fromtheright/calthomas/s-3165803">Read more

Cal Thomas: Red lines or victory?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

A recent headline in the Wall Street Journal expressed Hamas’ last chance in its terrorist war against Israel: “Hamas Pins Survival Hopes on Ramadan.” The sub headline reveals its strategy: “Group’s leader in Gaza counts on holy month to pressure Israel to end the war.”

President and Congress Need an Intervention

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

When some people appear beyond help because of addiction or other circumstances they can’t control, family members have been known to stage an intervention. Congress and President Biden need an intervention as their addiction to spending exceeds anything seen in history.

In his State of the Union address last week, the president invoked one ...Read more

Cal Thomas: The state of the disunion

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

If advance reports are correct, President Biden’s State of the Union address will sound more like a political stump speech than an honest assessment of where the country stands. The man who promised to be a uniter, will likely deliver one of the most ...Read more

Politicians Excel at Lying

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Politicians aren’t good at much, but they do excel at one thing – lying. They lie about the border. Both parties refuse to acknowledge the danger of a growing and unsustainable debt ( CNBC reports it’s increasing by $1 ...Read more

Dock Their Pay

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

When the government shuts down the people responsible continue to receive their pay because they are considered “essential.” These include the president and members of Congress. It reminds me of when it snows in Washington (as opposed to the snow jobs we get all year from politicians). The guy on the radio says, “only essential workers ...Read more

Trump Promises to Protect Christians from Persecution

The New American Antisemitism

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

In the aftermath of “from the river to the sea” anti-Israel protests on many college campuses and in the streets comes a perfectly timed book by Johns Hopkins University Professor Benjamin Ginsberg titled “The New American Anti-Semitism: The Left, The Right, and the Jews.”

Professor Ginsberg is especially hard on progressives and urges ...Read more

Willis vs. Wade vs. Euphemisms

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

During questioning of Fulton County, Georgia prosecutor Nathan Wade about his “relationship” with District Attorney Fani Willis there was a moment that cut through all the euphemisms we have become accustomed to when it comes to human behavior.

Scott Sadow, an attorney for Donald Trump, who is trying to get an indictment against Trump ...Read more

Gospel on PBS lifts Spirits

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

If you are tired of TV shows like “The Bachelor” where women demean themselves by competing for the “love” of a man; if you are sick of all the shootings and explosions on TV, the canned laughter on sitcoms that mostly aren’t funny (which is why they have to insert canned laughter in the first place); if you want to have your spirit ...Read more

The Unmaking of a President

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Beginning with the election of John F. Kennedy in 1960 and through the re-election of Richard Nixon in 1972, political journalist and biographer Theodore H. White wrote books called “The Making of a President.” Were he alive today he might title one about Joe Biden “The ...Read more
