In defense of Kate Smith

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The long arm of the PC police has reached back to the '30s and arrested, prosecuted and sentenced the late singer Kate Smith. Smith, who popularized Irving Berlin's song "God Bless America" and was a female pioneer in early television, recorded songs that today in hindsight are viewed as politics/fromtheright/calthomas/s-2201381">Read more

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 exception that is Costa Rica

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

LIBERIA, Costa Rica -- In the ongoing U.S. debate about immigration, the Central American countries of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala are mainly in the news because many of those crossing our border from Mexico are from these nations. Why isn't ...Read more

It's about time someone designated IRGC a foreign terrorist organization

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

President Trump has designated Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) a foreign terrorist organization (FTO). It's about time. Other administrations might have done it, but didn't.

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 /

The flood tide of illegal immigrants crossing our southern border cannot and must not continue. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has said of it, "The system is broken and overwhelmed. It is a national emergency."

The definition of emergency might help focus attention:

"A sudden, urgent, usually unexpected occurrence or occasion requiring immediate...Read more

What Sean Davis, co-founder of the web magazine The Federalist, wrote in Tuesday's Wall Street Journal sums up the disgust many Americans are feeling about the way big media handled the ...Read more

Nothing will stop the Democrats from coming after the Trump administration

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 conclusion: Donald Trump was illegitimately elected and that he and/or his campaign conspired with the Russians to undermine Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy.

A harsh president

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

President Trump made a rare appearance at a church last Sunday. It's a safe bet the sermon was not based on Proverbs 15:1 -- "A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a ...Read more

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.

There are at least three condemnations that should result from the massacre.

The first condemnation is for the act itself. The callous slaughter of people at prayer is part of an age that has devalued life, from...Read more

Young people's ignorance of the evils of socialism explains a lot

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

One of the rotten fruits produced by what passes for today's American education system is the ignorance some young people have about socialism.

According to a new Harris Poll given exclusively to Axios, the news and ...Read more

Rep. Omar's comments should create a Jewish problem for Democrats -- but won't

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-MN) comment that the influence of the Israeli lobby in Washington pushes lawmakers to take a pledge of "allegiance to a foreign country" was bad enough. A watered-down ...Read more

Bryce Harper and loyalty

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

President Harry Truman once said, "If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog." That truism can now be applied to baseball players, notably Bryce Harper.

Kudos to Dianne Feinstein

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Here's a sentence I never thought I would write: Dianne Feinstein was right.

A small group of middle- and high-school children from the San Francisco Bay area visited the Democratic senator from California last week to demand she support the "Green New Deal," a collection of environmental policies even some Democrats find too extreme, too ...Read more

Residents moving from high-tax New York to low-tax Florida

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

PALM BEACH, Florida -- While most attention has been focused on immigrants trying to enter the United States over America's southern border, there is legal migration taking place that has been largely ignored, though it may have at least as much economic and political impact as the other.

Merkel and Europe need to purge evil as Scripture commands

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

"There are none so blind as those who will not see."

One might think that after denying the evidence of Adolf Hitler's rise and objectives that resulted in World War II, Europeans might be more attuned to modern threats.

Premises, premises

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Here is the problem for Trump critics. They began with the wrong premise. They believed that Hillary Clinton should have won the 2016 presidential election. Then they deluded themselves by embracing the notion that Trump was illegitimate, unstable, stupid and an offense to everything they consider normal.

This led the Obama holdovers in the ...Read more
