For Trump: What might have been

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

“For all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these, ‘It might have been’.” — John Greenleaf Whittier

There are many things beyond human control, among them, when and where you were born and who your parents are.

As President Trump leaves office, he will have time, but perhaps not much time given that his enemies seek ...Read more

A martyred Trump will not be good for the country

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The old saying “Revenge is a dish best served cold” is understood to mean it is better to deliver retribution for a perceived or actual injustice after time has passed, in order for it to be done dispassionately. Sometimes it is better not to serve that dish at all. Like perishable food left unrefrigerated, a different kind of “bacteria”...Read more

Tech giants testing free speech again

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Twitter and Facebook have permanently banned President Trump from their social platforms. Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and attorney Sidney Powell have also been permanently banned as Twitter announced a purge of ...Read more

Democrats are the new ‘know-nothing’ party

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

House Democrats keep coming up with ideas that are bound to sink their already low approval ratings to new depths, possibly giving Republicans a majority in the 2022 election.

A representative body that has been unwilling to fix problems confronting the country has come up with a new set of rules for the 117th Congress that defy logic and ...Read more

Biden will speak less than Trump

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

One of many things that will distinguish a President Joe Biden from his predecessor is that the incoming president is likely to speak less in public, mostly because of how he garbles his thoughts and words. The most recent example was when he called Peter Doocy of Fox News a “politics/fromtheright/calthomas/s-2463484">Read more

Implementing Biden's climate doctrine will cost a fortune and result in an outcome I won't like

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

From the looks of President-elect Joe Biden’s selections for cabinet positions and other high offices it seems belief in “climate change” has become a litmus test. Biden appears to have raised climate change to the level of a religious doctrine.

Christians touched once a year by the power of Christmas

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Of all the great and small events of 1991, the death of CBS News' "60 Minutes" co-host Harry Reasoner probably rates near the bottom in the amount of attention afforded it by the public.

Yet when a keen observer and a ...Read more

As Christians we should celebrate God’s ultimate gift to humankind by giving to a Christian charity

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

A phrase one hears this time of year is about gifts that “keep on giving.” Most store-bought gifts are soon forgotten, but are there some gifts with timeless value?

I suspect most people want their lives to matter, especially to others. Is that achieved by personal success, prosperity, and the acquisition of “stuff” that wears out, is ...Read more

After Trump, what (and who) for the GOP?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

At the 1980 Democratic National Convention in New York, Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) delivered a speech following his defeat by Jimmy Carter for the presidential nomination. ...Read more

Mainstream media's censorship and suppression of Hunter Biden investigation led to election being stolen

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

It isn’t that the alleged exploits, profits and questionable business deals involving Hunter Biden and his father, Joe Biden, were not known for most of this election year. Much of mainstream media either ignored it or put it down as right-wing extremism.

Until now.

We’ve recently learned that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware is ...Read more

Walter Williams was full of wisdom

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Wisdom is not the same as information, or knowledge. These days, there is more information available to everyone than ever before, thanks to the internet, but also, perhaps at least in part because of the internet, there is less wisdom.

The late Walter ...Read more

Trump is still winning on the economy

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Some people can’t handle success. The latest jobs report shows that despite the pandemic President Trump’s policies of lower taxes and reducing regulations continue to work. Raising taxes and imposing regulations, as Joe Biden has pledged to do, has historically had the opposite ...Read more

The dog, the fracture and the ‘palmists’

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Whenever president-elect Joe Biden makes a rare public appearance and is out of the immediate control of his team it increases my suspicions that he is not physically, and above all mentally, up to the job he is about to take over.

Last week, Biden fractured his foot ...Read more

Biden will bring more challenges to religious freedom and other constitutional rights

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

In totalitarian societies, governments suppress the church and religious worship. That’s because dictators believe citizens should worship them as the highest authority and not a Higher Authority, which they view as a threat to their power and position.

In the United States, the threat to religious liberty has been under siege for some time. ...Read more

Now thank we all our God with heart and hands and voices

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

I have loved song lyrics since briefly flirting in my teens and early 20s with a career in musical comedy, settling instead for journalism after a sobering assessment of my talents.

Lyricists, from Jerome Kern, to Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Frederick Loewe, Oscar Hammerstein II, Jerry Herman, Carolyn Leigh, ...Read more

Trump's case is unraveling

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The Trump legal team’s move over the weekend to distance itself from attorney Sidney Powell as it seeks to overturn the November 3 election results is a major blow to the president’s attempt to win a second term.

Powell, whose 2014 book, “Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice,” along with her work as the ...Read more

Alito’s warnings ring true, but are we listening?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Everywhere one looks there are warning signs, from labels on cigarette packs warning that smoking causes cancer, to ridiculous labels on thermometers that read, “Once used rectally, the thermometer should not be used orally.”

Associate Justice Samuel Alito has delivered some ...Read more

The ultimate faith adviser is found in the Old Testament

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

If I am deficient in my knowledge about chemistry, or a medical issue, or what kind of car to buy, I consult people who know more than I do on these subjects.

When it comes to faith, though, I can handle that with a little help from my friends, meaning the writers of the Old and New Testaments, and sermons from trusted pastors who believe in ...Read more

We must pray fervently for President Biden

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Evangelical Christians have unquestionably been a loyal and largely unmovable base of support for President Trump since he has been in office and in some cases before. Should the election results not be overturned by recounts or court decisions, where do they go and what should they do?

Perhaps no evangelical pastor has been a stronger and more...Read more

We are a bipolar nation, unlikely to unify

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

If Joe Biden survives recounts and several lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign into what Trump says has been widespread vote-counting fraud (we await proof), do not expect him to be hounded over his and Hunter Biden’s business ties to China and Ukraine as President Trump has been over “Russian collusion” charges and numerous other ...Read more
