A Rabbi, a Terrorist, and the FBI

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Is a terrorist a terrorist only when a law enforcement officer or politician says he is?

Malik Faisal Akram entered a synagogue in Colleyville, Texas, held four hostages, including the rabbi, and expressed support for Aafia ...Read more

Lying Lips

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

How do you know when a politician is lying? Answer: when his lips are moving. It’s an old joke, but it fits the Biden administration.

The president went to Atlanta last week where he made claims that would have sent a lie detector off the chart. With a tableau of mostly Black people behind him, Biden again asserted without credible evidence ...Read more

New York: No Longer a ‘Fun City’

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

“Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained, but happy is one who keeps the Law.” (Proverbs 29:18)

That didn’t last long. The optimism surrounding New York City’s new mayor, Eric Adams, seems to be quickly eroding due to several self-inflicted political wounds.

School Daze

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

For the third straight day last week, the Chicago Teachers Union canceled classes, choosing to return to virtual learning and citing dangers from the Omicron variant as their excuse.

To many, this is seen as nothing more than a teachers’ strike and power grab executed by a union that historically supports Democrat politicians. Democrats send ...Read more

Chuck Schumer’s Hypocrisy

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Hypocrisy and lies from politicians are so rampant in Washington that hardly anyone pays them much attention anymore. Perhaps that is why our cynicism about so many things political deepens and distrust of our institutions is pervasive.

A co-conspirator in all of this is Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who has set the middle of the...Read more

Let’s Out the Men in Maxwell-Epstein Case

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The conviction of Ghislaine Maxwell on five of six charges of recruiting and grooming teenage girls for sexual encounters with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein is not and should not be the end of the story. While ...Read more

No Peace or Goodwill

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Peace on Earth and goodwill to men this time of year seems increasingly absent in diverse places. In America the noble objective seems to have long ago left the U.S. Capitol where too many Members of Congress are as divided and angry at each other as ever.

I Have Several Questions About Biden's Testing Kits

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

President Biden has attempted to tamp down the frustration many feel over his inability to crush the pandemic, as he promised he would do when campaigning for the office he now holds.

In a Tuesday afternoon address from the White House,...Read more

Building the Wall Back Better

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

During a debate with George H.W. Bush in New Hampshire in 1980, the moderator asked that Ronald Reagan’s microphone be “turned off for the moment.” Reagan was angry and said something that might be applied to the failure of the Biden administration to ...Read more

Restraint and the Tornado Tragedy

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Some politicians and government officials can’t let a crisis go to waste. In the matter of the tornadoes that devastated parts of Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee and Missouri, restraint was called for, but went unanswered.

Asked about the cause of such devastation, President Biden politics/fromtheright/calthomas/s-2608895">Read more

Medals for Jumping to Conclusions About Jussie Smollett

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

If Love means never having to say you’re sorry (it doesn’t), then being a member of the media means never having to admit you were wrong (it does).

I wouldn’t write about the Jussie Smollett case and his conviction for lying about a hoax he perpetrated if it didn’t reflect something seriously wrong in the culture. Smollett was convicted...Read more

Putin Knows Biden is Weak

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

President Biden’s virtual meeting Tuesday with Russian President Vladimir Putin might be thought of as a final check-up before Russian troops politics/fromtheright/calthomas/s-2606132">Read more

The Signs Weren’t Missed, They Were Ignored

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

As has been the case with so many other school shootings over several years, last week’s murder spree at Oakland High School in suburban Detroit might have been avoided if actions had been taken in the face of several obvious warning signs.

Connecting the Dots

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The Supreme Court on Wednesday heard oral arguments for and against a Mississippi law that would ban abortions after 15 weeks. The arguments — pro and con — are familiar, but there is a greater argument to be made for upholding the law ...Read more

Isn’t It Rich?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The death of composer Stephen Sondheim at 91 is more than the end of an era. It is the end of a chain of great Broadway musicals dating back to the 1920s when Jerome Kern’s “Showboat” first dazzled theater audiences.

I met him only once. It was at Barbara Cook’s apartment in New York where she had invited a few friends following her ...Read more

Thanks for Giving

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

For some, this Thanksgiving – like last year — is a more difficult occasion than previous ones. Perhaps a loved one has died from COVID-19, or you feel isolated from relatives and friends due to lockdowns, quarantines, travel restrictions, vaccinations (or not), masks and “distancing” and might think you have little to celebrate or be ...Read more

Be Happy That a Kyle Rittenhouse is Patrolling Your Streets Like a Neighborhood Watchman

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Before the right to keep and bear arms is stated in the Second Amendment, the Founders wrote why they believed it necessary for people to arm themselves as part of a “militia.” They said...Read more

Swindled Again

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Remember those “shovel-ready jobs” promised by the Obama-Biden administration in 2011? When many failed to appear after passage of this spending boondoggle, President Obama ...Read more

Threats of More Lawlessness in New York

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

“Lawlessness is lawlessness. Anarchy is anarchy is anarchy. Neither race nor color nor frustration is an excuse for either lawlessness or anarchy.” – Thurgood Marshall

Eric Adams, the incoming mayor of New York City, met last week with Hawk Newsome, a co-founder of ...Read more

An American (Vice President) in Paris

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

When past presidents have seen their approval numbers take a dive, they went on foreign trips. Sometimes this works, but more often it doesn’t, because failure at home often follows them abroad. World leaders can sense failure and its twin, weakness.
