David Limbaugh | June 29, 2002

A few short weeks ago, President Bush was preparing a speech announcing his plan to establish an interim Palestinian State. Then, something changed.

Robert Novak | June 29, 2002

President Bush's 2004 re-election headquarters will be in Washington, contrary to earlier speculation that retiring Counselor Karen Hughes would run his campaign from Texas when she returns to her Austin home in July.

William F. Buckley | June 29, 2002

I know a distinguished social pathologist who is wondering, at this juncture, whether there is a new component in the economic picture in America.

Kathleen Parker | June 29, 2002

Bush knew! There can be no other explanation for a federal appeals court decision to ban the Pledge of Allegiance in schools -a ruling which was subsequently put on indefinite hold.

Fri, Jun 28, 2002

Thomas Sowell | June 28, 2002

Now that the decision of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to ban "under God" from the pledge of allegiance has been protested all over the landscape, perhaps we might step back and consider the broader implications of the fact that such a decision could have been made in the first place.

Michelle Malkin | June 28, 2002

These are amazing times. While federal courts collaborate with atheist zealots to expunge every innocuous mention of religion from the public square under the guise of protecting the fragile self-esteem of unbelievers and their vulnerable children, taxpayers are forced to pay for "sex positive" propaganda spread from public streets to public schools.

Brent Bozell | June 28, 2002

Certain matters once handled discreetly now are part of our ongoing cultural conversation. The extent to which that's good or bad depends on context.

Jonah Goldberg | June 28, 2002

In cartoons, when a character runs away suddenly, there's always a little swirling dust devil left behind.

Mona Charen | June 28, 2002

You had us worried there for a while. In the wake of your inspiring and brilliant speech this week, one feels a little sheepish to have doubted you. Yet your trumpet on the Middle East had been, let's face it, a little uncertain during the past few months.

Cal Thomas | June 28, 2002

On the eve of our great national birthday party and in the aftermath of Sept. 11, when millions of us turned to God and prayed for forgiveness of individual and corporate sins and asked for His protection against future attacks, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco has inflicted on this nation what many will conclude is a greater injury than that caused by the terrorists.

Oliver North | June 28, 2002

On Feb. 23, 1945, after four fierce days of battle, five U.S. Marines and a U.S. Navy corpsman raised an American flag atop Mount Suribachi on the vital Pacific island of Iwo Jima.

Jacob Sullum | June 28, 2002

Anyone who has ever been dissatisfied with his driver's license photo will have to admit there is something to be said for Sultaana Freeman's approach. In her picture, nothing is visible except her eyes and the bridge of her nose. The rest of her head is covered by a black veil.

Bruce Bartlett | June 28, 2002

Among the factors that investors are focusing on closely in recent days is the falling dollar. Since the first of the year, the dollar has fallen about 5 percent against major currencies.

Ross Mackenzie | June 28, 2002

Taking a lope around the issues as the All-Star break approaches....

Larry Kudlow | June 28, 2002

The economy is doing fine, but the stock market is slumping. So far, the blame has rightly been placed on corporate corruption, dishonest accounting practices and some ill-advised protectionist trade moves by the Bush administration. But these, it seems, are only partly to blame.

George Will | June 28, 2002

Happily, the number seven was not lucky on Thursday for the disgustingly determined and mostly liberal people who oppose extending to poor parents the right of school choice that is routinely exercised by middle-class Americans, including many liberals.

Thu, Jun 27, 2002

Michelle Malkin | June 27, 2002

The New York Times reports that Senator Hillary Clinton is nearing completion of her memoirs. Well, not actually Mrs. Clinton.

Brent Bozell | June 27, 2002

It was another classic Clintonite whopper. ABC proudly announced that its five-year long march to package George Stephanopoulos was complete.

Larry Elder | June 27, 2002

CBS's Andy Rooney appeared recently on "Larry King Live." King asked Rooney about "Bias," the book by Bernard Goldberg that accuses CBS in particular and mainstream news in general of a liberal bias:

Jonah Goldberg | June 27, 2002

Last week the Supreme Court decreed that executing the retarded violates the Constitution. It was a patently awful decision, revealing how confused America is about both the Constitution and the retarded.

Cal Thomas | June 27, 2002

There's plenty about which one could nitpick in President Bush's proposal for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Suzanne Fields | June 27, 2002

Education, my father the grateful immigrant would say, was the glorious prize for growing up in America. He quit school in the eighth grade and always regretted it.

Ben Shapiro | June 27, 2002

JUNE 2005, JERUSALEM -- I'm writing to you from Jerusalem, where I recently interviewed Israeli Prime Minister Effie Eitam. Eitam entered the Israeli government as minister-without-portfolio in the government of Ariel Sharon in 2002 and as a member of the National Religious Party.

Linda Chavez | June 27, 2002

President Bush's plan for a provisional Palestinian state will not bring peace to the Middle East. Peace will come only when Palestinians love their children more than they hate Jews.

Emmett Tyrrell | June 27, 2002

It is summer reading time, and I have a perfect book for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton to bring to Martha's Vineyard

William F. Buckley | June 27, 2002

The dreams of George W. for the Mideast are gratifying, but has he done anything to advance them?

Robert Novak | June 27, 2002

George W. Bush sat down privately with the nation's top business executives late last Thursday afternoon and gave them an earful about corporate ethics in what is being called America's second Gilded Age.

Larry Kudlow | June 27, 2002

The sagging stock market is diverging significantly from the rising economy. It's a puzzling and very unusual event. Much of this disconnect can be traced to a loss of investor trust due to corporate corruption and the breakdown of accounting standards.

Joel Mowbray | June 27, 2002

The agnecy that let in all 19 Sept. 11th terrorists should absolutely be a part of the new Department of Homeland Defense--but that's not the plan.

John McCaslin | June 27, 2002

Among other points, Texas Sen. Phil Gramm insists he's not fat and says he's too old to be intimidated.

Charles Krauthammer | June 27, 2002

The president's speech on the Middle East this week unveiled a radically new idea that goes far beyond the ``Arafat has to go'' headlines. Of course Arafat has to go. He has spent his eight years in control of Palestinian society encouraging and glorifying violence.

Thomas Sowell | June 26, 2002

Some more murderers may escape the death penalty as a result of the recent decision of the U.S. Supreme Court, declaring it unconstitutional to execute those who are "mentally retarded."

Walter E. Williams | June 26, 2002

Profits are misunderstood, seen as unearned and sometimes condemned as evil. Maybe that's why people often reverently pronounce, with an air of moral superiority, "We're a nonprofit organization."

David Limbaugh | June 26, 2002

Isn't it time for those who actually believed that the president's "new tone" in Washington would reduce partisanship to admit they were wrong?

Dennis Prager | June 26, 2002

The question is rarely asked. It is simply taken for granted that the left -- Europe, the Western news media, the universities, the liberal churches, the arts world -- supports the Palestinians and the larger Arab/Muslim worlds in their war against Israel.

Pat Buchanan | June 26, 2002

"When sorrows come, they come not single spies, But in battalions," said Hamlet. If President Bush has time left over from defusing a war between India and Pakistan, and preparing a plan for Mideast peace, he best take a quick glance south. From Tijuana to Tierra del Fuego, democratic capitalism is in deepening peril.

Bill Murchison | June 26, 2002

Whether the Palestinians know it or not, President Bush has paid them a high compliment. He has judged them, in his Monday Rose Garden remarks, capable of moving beyond Yasser Arafat, onto the higher slopes of participatory democracy and free elections.

Kathleen Parker | June 26, 2002

One can give credit to George Bush for restoring dignity to the White House. Done. One can commend George Bush for responding appropriately to the Sept. 11 Islamist attack on the United States.

George Will | June 26, 2002

President Bush's Monday statement was the most clearsighted U.S. intervention in the Israeli-Palestinian crisis in the 35 years since the 1967 war, and perhaps in the 54 years since the founding of Israel.

Armstrong Williams | June 26, 2002

President Bush's strong response to the Sept. 11 attacks has formed a Texas-size advertisement for his re-election. Less noticeable has been Bush's betrayal of the conservative ideals that were supposed to animate his domestic policy with meaning.

Thomas Sowell | June 25, 2002

Hardly a week goes by without at least one reader asking a really tough question. The latest tough question dealt with a recent column which said that, in a war for survival, the government has not only the right but the duty to intern groups whose loyalties are to our enemies.

Cal Thomas | June 25, 2002

One can agree (or not) with last week's 6-3 ruling by the Supreme Court that the death penalty should not apply to retarded citizens

Phyllis Schlafly | June 25, 2002

The watchword of the Bush administration's education reform is accountability.

Frank Gaffney | June 25, 2002

Since September 11th, some congressional Democrats have imitated chameleons, altering their observable ideological coloration for tactical political advantage.

Maggie Gallagher | June 25, 2002

Forgive the intrusion, but I just had to drop you a note of sympathy in this time of trial with Rudy.

Jack Kemp | June 25, 2002

Operating with bureaucratic stealth and maneuvering under the political radar last month, the Environmental Protection Agency released a report claiming that human beings are causing atmospheric temperatures to rise

Marvin Olasky | June 25, 2002

On one recent morning, Jose Pinera, the world's leading Social Security reformer, wore a blue windbreaker and spoke energetically to an American visitor of growing up "one of six children, with a mother who believed in savings.

Bruce Bartlett | June 25, 2002

Last Thursday, President Bush announced the first recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom in his presidency. This is an award inaugurated by President Kennedy to honor civilians who have served their country in the arts, literature, sport, politics and other endeavors.

Mon, Jun 24, 2002

Pat Buchanan | June 24, 2002

Whenever Palestinians or Israelis seem to be moving toward the peace table, Hamas snaps that bloody red cape of bloody terror in the face or Ariel Sharon, and Sharon dutifully imitates the raging bull.

Suzanne Fields | June 24, 2002

Supermarkets in Norway are pasting stickers on Israeli products so customers can know where they come from and boycott them. No yellow armbands for Jews. Not yet.

Debra J. Saunders | June 24, 2002

As John Walker Lindh's lawyers have complained that their client can't get a fair trial in Virginia, and perhaps in anywhere in America, they raise the question as to what a fair trial is.

William F. Buckley | June 24, 2002

Every now and again, interrupting the daily monsoon recording the work of the miserable priests who have labored so successfully to undermine the Catholic Church, one hears a little beep of protest.

John Leo | June 24, 2002

Once again the push is on for the Senate to ratify CEDAW, the U.N.'s women's rights treaty that has been hanging around since 1979. CEDAW is the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women.

Robert Novak | June 24, 2002

Colombia's avowedly hard-line President-elect Alvaro Uribe paid a low-profile visit to Washington last week that seemed successful but actually sowed suspicion.

Kathleen Parker | June 24, 2002

Airlines are certainly right that they ought to be able to charge more for people who consume more space. If you order two meals, you pay for two meals no matter how hungry you are.

George Will | June 24, 2002

When the history of today's liberalism is written, the writers may ... tread lightly. Otherwise they may be sued
