Tazewell County Banquet 2021


Cal Thomas, Speaker

Cal Thomas focuses on what promotes the general welfare, regardless of which party or ideology gets the credit. Without letting politics, or ignorance, get in the way, Thomas urges readers to pay attention so that politicians can no longer pick their pockets—literally or intellectually.

With a twice-weekly column appearing in hundreds of newspapers, Thomas is one of the most widely read and one of the most highly regarded voices on the American political scene. For 19 years he was a commentator on Fox News Channel, which included his own show “After Hours” and as a panelist for “Fox News Watch.” For ten years he and Bob Beckel wrote the “Common Ground” column for USA Today. 

A graduate of American University, Thomas is a veteran of broadcast and print journalism. He has worked for NBC News in Washington, D.C. and hosted his own program on CBNC that was nominated for a Cable ACE Award in 1995. In 2011, Thomas received the William F. Buckley, Jr. Award for Media Excellence from the Media Research Center. His latest book is America’s Expiration Date: The Fall of Empires and Superpowers…and the Future of the United States was published in 2019.

He has four adult children, eleven grandchildren. He resides in the South Florida area.
