Trump's Nominations of Constitutionalist Judges Paid Off

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

There were times over the last 50 years when some pro-lifers felt they would never see Roe v. Wade overturned and the right to life again recognized by government.

Many who never doubted didn’t live to see this day. They had marched in the cold streets of Washington, D.C., in January on Roe’s anniversary. These never-doubters included ...Read more

Let Voters Decide the Future of Trump!

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

If the House January 6 committee proceeds to its seemingly predetermined conclusion that Donald Trump incited the Capitol riot and tried to reverse the results of the 2020 election and if they recommend to the Department of Justice that Trump committed criminal acts and should be prosecuted, President Biden will face a serious choice.

Biden, ...Read more

Sticks, Stone and Worse

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Most people are familiar with the phrase “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

The incendiary rhetoric that has engulfed our political system has demonstrated that especially violent words can cause hurt, even death, to others.

The most recent example is a California man who showed up last week at the ...Read more

Modern Commencement Addresses More Pathetic Than Prophetic

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

What comes to mind in the month of June? Weddings. Vacations (and how to pay for record high gas prices if you’re driving). Graduations.

Time was when many commencement speeches at major universities were about America and its values and what graduates could expect in the future. In recent years, they have become a political capstone on the ...Read more

Restoring Traditional American Values is the Missing Element in the Debate About Guns

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The heightened debate over gun violence following the massacre of 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, is leaving out one critical element. The debate starts at the wrong end.

Texas Shooting: A Failure of Several Levels

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

There are no adjectives that can accurately describe the gruesome act committed by 18-year-old Salvador Ramos at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. He killed 19 children and two teachers. “Evil” is about as close as it gets.

President Biden and some fellow Democrats predictably called for more gun control laws without explaining why ...Read more

What is U.S. Foreign Policy?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

For the third time since becoming president, Joe Biden has said he would send U.S. forces to defend Taiwan should mainland China launch an attack. And for the third time, White House staff and the State Department had to “walk back” (diplospeak for deny) that the U.S. position has ...Read more

The Law and Racism

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The overt racism and anti-Semitism written in the Buffalo shooter’s 180-page “manifesto” has been rightly denounced by civilized people. The usual questions are being asked. These include how did he get the ...Read more

We Must Protect Our Children From Becoming Progressives!

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

How are progressives made? By cooking them in a public school six hours a day, five days a week where they are seemingly indoctrinated with an ideology that contradicts the values and beliefs of many of their parents.

It began as a trickle, but now is approaching a flood as activist groups – notably LGBTQ organizations – have infiltrated ...Read more

Propaganda American style

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

As with many things, propaganda can be used for good or for ill, depending on who dispenses it. During World War II, American propaganda was considered a necessary tool in the pursuit of victory in a moral cause. Germany and Japan had their own propaganda machines to advance an evil agenda.

The Nazi propaganda effort was headed by Joseph ...Read more

Ignorance and Apathy

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

There’s an old joke about a fictitious poll taker who asked people what they thought about ignorance and apathy when it comes to politics and elections. One respondent said, “I don’t know, and I don’t care.”

I thought of that joke after seeing a recent politics/fromtheright/calthomas/s-2669523">Read more

Free at Last (Until the Next Time)

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Elon Musk Wants to Promote Free Speech!

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Americans who subscribe to “traditional values” have had to put up with a lot from the left in the name of the First Amendment. From vulgarities on TV (self-described First Amendment defenders said things like, “If you don’t like, it change the channel”), to sexual scenes in movies (“If you don’t like it, don’t go”), to the ...Read more
