Please Include Subject Line: “Cal Thomas Event”
Why is it that, despite repeated failures, U.S. foreign policy continues to be mired in the same mistaken assumptions? Whether its trusting dictators to bind themselves to signed treaties, remaining slavishly devoted to failed paradigms regarding the importance of the “peace process,” or the wisdom of disarmament in the face of aggression, it seems that Washington routinely fails to learn the lessons of history.
EMET is proud to bring 2008 Speaker of the Truth Award recipient Cal Thomas to Capitol Hill to discuss his new book, “What Works: Common Sense Solutions for a Stronger America”. Subtitled “It’s Groundhog’s Day In Washington,” Cal examines why failed policies and mistaken assumptions continuely rear their head in government, even when an objective examination reveals their flaws.
Cal Thomas is one of the most popular syndicated columnists in the country, appearing in hundreds of newspapers. He also writes the Common Ground column (with his liberal Democrat friend Bob Beckel) and regularly appears on Fox News. He began his career in radio, TV, and print at the age of sixteen. 2014 marks the thirtieth anniversary of his syndicated column.
