David Limbaugh | November 17, 2001

Peggy Noonan has outdone herself with her biography of Ronald Reagan, "When Character Was King." Of all her extraordinary work, this beats anything I've seen – and I think I know why.

Pat Buchanan | November 17, 2001

Nov. 13 was a good day for America and a great day for George W. Bush. Kabul fell, the Taliban were suddenly on the run, and the president's men and U.S. armed forces seemed to have engineered a brilliant victory without the loss of a single American in combat.

Joel Mowbray | November 17, 2001

The special bipartisanship that existed in the immediate aftermath of September 11th is officially over. Many in the media are mourning the loss of their coveted ideal: neutered politicians who engage in group hugs and sing God Bless America.

Thomas Sowell | November 16, 2001

Sometimes it seems as if "diversity" is going to replace "the" as the most often used word in the English language.

Michelle Malkin | November 16, 2001

The victims of American Airlines Flight 587 and their families deserve our deepest sympathy and prayers. But compassion must not override vigilance.

Jonah Goldberg | November 16, 2001

Who said violence never solved anything? That'd sure be news to the thousands of Afghans who swarmed into the streets of Kabul after the Taliban ran away like my dog escaping a Saturday night bath.

Mona Charen | November 16, 2001

The vice president of the United States is quite satisfied with recent developments in the Afghan war -- so much so that he couldn't resist a gentle dig at critics of the administration's policy.

Oliver North | November 16, 2001

Two weeks ago, President George W. Bush issued a "call to service" in the war on terrorism and challenged Americans to use their talents and abilities to protect our homeland.

Suzanne Fields | November 16, 2001

A patient falls ill in one of Voltaire's philosophical tales and the author observes: "Despite the attention and ministrations of the leading medical doctors of Europe, he survived."

Debra J. Saunders | November 16, 2001

Now that yet another confab on the 1997 Kyoto global warming protocol has ended with participants patting each on the back for being such good enviros, you can expect even more pressure on President Bush to embrace the pact.

Emmett Tyrrell | November 16, 2001

So what happened to the word "quagmire"? I do not hear much about it from the talking heads or the armchair generalissimos in the press, as the Taliban scurry and the Afghans shave their beards or engage in such lewd practices as kite flying.

Larry Kudlow | November 16, 2001

At the big Ralph Lauren Polo store on 72nd and Madison in New York City, my favorite salesman recently offered me a spiffy Purple Label sports jacket (double vents, slash pockets, brown tweed) for the modest sum of $2,600.

Ross Mackenzie | November 16, 2001

In the newly terrorized world, things are happening essentially unrelated to terror. Among them - with comment direct or implied:

In the wake of Sept. 11, Congress and the White House seemed united on the need for economic stimulus.

John McCaslin | November 16, 2001

Ann Coulter | November 15, 2001

Initial reports from National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration officials investigating the crash of American Airlines Flight 587 are now ruling out slavery or Indian dispossession as the cause.

Thomas Sowell | November 15, 2001

Nothing is an outrage when the reigning fad is being non-judgmental. So perhaps it is not surprising that there has been no nationwide chorus of condemnation of Bill Clinton's anti-American speech at Georgetown University.

Michelle Malkin | November 15, 2001

The INS bureaucracy is a cesspool of elbow-rubbers, string-pullers, chest-puffers and cover-uppers who care more about protecting their backsides than upholding the law.

Brent Bozell | November 15, 2001

After a year of sifting through the most confused ballots of the most confused voters in Florida, the major media have a major announcement to make.

Larry Elder | November 15, 2001

Oh, those Clintons! On September 17, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-New York) appeared on "Dateline NBC." Where, Dateline asked, was Chelsea on that fateful day?

Jonah Goldberg | November 15, 2001

Nothing warms my heart more than to see elite conventional wisdom turned on its head. A week ago, we were losing the war in Afghanistan.

Cal Thomas | November 15, 2001

The publication of "Reaching for Glory: The Johnson White House Tapes, 1964-1965" by historian Michael Beschloss (Simon & Schuster) should end the argument as to who was right about the Vietnam War.

Debra J. Saunders | November 15, 2001

This just in: George W. Bush was elected president. You already knew that.

Maggie Gallagher | November 15, 2001

In Afghanistan, the Taliban is fleeing. In New York, airplanes are mysteriously crashing.

George Will | November 15, 2001

At one point, J.K. Rowling's first three Harry Potter novels occupied the top three spots on the New York Times hardback fiction best-seller list.

John McCaslin | November 15, 2001

Months before anthrax infiltrated the U.S. Postal Service, e-mail sent over the Internet had become the second most popular means of communication among Americans - behind only the telephone.

Robert Novak | November 15, 2001

George W. Bush, adjusting to the post-Sept. 11 political world as it really is, has locked the door against congressional raids on the Treasury conducted in the name of fighting terrorism.

William F. Buckley | November 15, 2001

It is instructive to catch the emotions on the fly. They do not always yield self-esteem.

Walter E. Williams | November 14, 2001

When the NAACP, Urban League and black politicians talk about civil rights, they talk mostly about how many blacks are in college, the racial composition of schools and neighborhoods or the number of blacks employed in what positions.

David Limbaugh | November 14, 2001

Conservative commentators regularly criticize the elite media for their undisclosed liberal bias and their penchant for creating – rather than reporting –news. Their foolishness continues unabated, but other factors may be contributing to their mischief: boredom and narcissism.

Pat Buchanan | November 14, 2001

As President Bush hosts President Putin at his Texas ranch, Russia seems but a shadow of what she was only yesterday.

Phyllis Schlafly | November 14, 2001

The Bush administration's announcements that it will delay indefinitely the admission of refugees from terrorist countries, and that it will find and deport foreigners who are illegally in the United States because their visa terms have expired, are two moves in the right direction.

Frank Gaffney | November 14, 2001

Testing, testing. That word may be the leitmotif of the next three days – and not only for technicians checking out microphones used at summit photo ops featuring President Bush and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

Jack Kemp | November 14, 2001

The Federal Reserve Board has been keeping monetary policy too tight and driving the economy into a deflationary recession.

Kathleen Parker | November 14, 2001

No American war is complete without the Gender Equality Question: Should women be drafted? I feel like filling my remaining column space with "blah blah blah" and taking the rest of the day off.

Tue, Nov 13, 2001

Cal Thomas | November 13, 2001

Many are properly outraged that families of the victims of Sept. 11 are not getting the bulk of the money collected for them by the American Red Cross.

Bill Murchison | November 13, 2001

What blunt instrument are they going to use now for bashing George W. Bush?

Jacob Sullum | November 13, 2001

The sociologist Charles Moskos has been pushing the idea of "national service" for many years.

John Leo | November 13, 2001

Emotions run high in wartime, and people want the news media to behave and show loyalty. That's why an offhand remark by David Westin touched off so much controversy.

Charles Krauthammer | November 13, 2001

We are rolling. Under American air power, the Northern Alliance has taken Mazar-e Sharif and swept through almost half of Afghanistan.

Armstrong Williams | November 13, 2001

Lurking beneath all of the post Sept. 11 rhetoric about bipartisan handholding, there resides one single resounding fact: President Bush has nearly 110 federal judgeships to fill.

Marvin Olasky | November 13, 2001

Until Sept. 11, Democrats mad about George W. Bush's "stealing of the presidency" were hot to trot, and conservatives upset about the Bush centrist strategy on many issues were ready to rumble.

Bruce Bartlett | November 13, 2001

Whatever tax cuts rich people and big corporations want, liberals believe, conservatives will automatically support, no matter how unjustified economically.

Jonah Goldberg | November 12, 2001

In a little over a week, the Muslim holy month of Ramadan begins.

Cal Thomas | November 12, 2001

President Bush is acquiring the ability to inspire. He exudes strength, confidence and, to use a biblical term, righteousness.

Pat Buchanan | November 12, 2001

In 1919, with President Wilson felled by a stroke, anarchists detonated a bomb outside the home of Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer. For the anarchists, not a wise move.

Debra J. Saunders | November 12, 2001

It doesn't speak well for this country that Attorney General John Ashcroft is in the doghouse for issuing a ruling last week instructing federal drug agents to target doctors who prescribe lethal drugs under Oregon's assisted-suicide law.

Kathleen Parker | November 12, 2001

It's too bad that one of Mayor Rudy Giuliani's final acts in office had to be the scolding of New York City's sorely needed and, as far as I'm concerned, forever-unimpeachable firefighters.

George Will | November 12, 2001

Karl Rove, George W. Bush's boon companion for many years and now his counselor, studies history because he knows that those who do not learn from history will not be able to repeat it.

Suzanne Fields | November 11, 2001

Before Sept. 11, one of the major battlefields in the culture wars was over what to teach our children about the world they live in - not only what they learn, but how they learn it.

William F. Buckley | November 11, 2001

I have a letter, and my guess is that you have one like it. Mine is from a middle-aged woman who brings me news of her father, an old friend retired in Arizona who slipped out of sight a few years ago.
