Defining Education Down

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The Death, Debt and Debauched Democrats

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

After last week’s House vote that saw all but one Democrat, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX), and no Republicans vote for the Women’s Health and Protection Act, a bill that would establish a federal right to an abortion, the party that once claimed to stand for “the little guy” — the littlest being the unborn baby — has now hit the trifecta...Read more

The Liberal Media is Destroying America!

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

There are forces that wish to destroy America. Some of them are visible and some are stealth.

The visible forces include terrorists and certain nation states like Iran. Radical Islamic preachers cry “death to America” in their sermons, encouraging martyrdom through suicide bombings. Sept. 11 was their crowning achievement, so far. There ...Read more

An Economic History Lesson

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Following the death of Mao Zedong, former president and founding father of the People’s Republic of China, more than 40 years ago, his successor, Deng Xiaoping, instituted economic reforms that looked less like classic communism and more like capitalism. It didn’t happen all at once, but gradually. The result was that millions of Chinese ...Read more

The New Exodus

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

LOS ANGELES — Forget what you hear most pundits saying about last week’s recall election that failed to unseat California Governor Gavin Newsom.

They are wrong. The real story is ...Read more

The Next Terrorist Attack

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

For 20 years since Sept. 11, 2001, U.S. presidents have been saying their anti-terrorism policies have worked, as evidenced by no new attacks on America. While we should be grateful another attack hasn’t occurred, past performance is no guarantee of future success. Fanatics are nothing but patient, as we have seen in Afghanistan.

Deep in the Hearts of Texas Babies

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

In the matter of a new Texas law banning abortions six weeks after gestation, when a fetal heartbeat can usually be detected by vaginal ultrasound, suppose the headlines had been different?

There once were summertimes when the living was easy, as the song from the Broadway musical “Porgy and Bess” melodically reminds us.

When I was in public school, a TV ad asked: “It’s 10 o’clock Do you know where your children are?”

Here’s a better question for today: Do you know what your children are being taught and exposed to in their schools?”

Afghanistan’s Ripple Effect

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

What has happened in Afghanistan will not stay in Afghanistan but will have a ripple effect throughout the region and beyond.
