Ann Coulter | July 06, 2002

The New York Times editorial page was in a snit with the Supreme Court this week for its first ruling on the Bush administration's wartime security procedures.

Brent Bozell | July 06, 2002

It was a good idea, and for a while, it was well executed, but all that was several years before the recent demise of "Politically Incorrect."

William F. Buckley | July 06, 2002

The health question is a mess. The GOP, for all that it is fighting a rear-guard action, has no real handle on it. The Democrats are progressively lured to some variant of the position that medicine should be free.

Robert Novak | July 06, 2002

Sen. John Kerry's frontal attack on conduct of the war in Afghanistan has opened the way for a Democratic onslaught on President Bush after Congress returns from its Fourth of July recess.

Kathleen Parker | July 06, 2002

In the search for fitting words, "tsunami" aptly describes the response to my earlier column about what to name the event currently known as 9-11.

Thomas Sowell | July 05, 2002

A magician was asked what had happened to the lady he used to saw in half in his act. "Oh, she's retired," he said. "Now she lives in Chicago -- and Denver."

Michelle Malkin | July 05, 2002

Last week, members of Congress leapt to the defense of the words "under God." They shouted the phrase on Capitol Hill and in front of every available camera.

Brent Bozell | July 05, 2002

It looks like Campaign 2004 is starting to heat up with Al Gore acting rested, ready and ridiculous again. In Tennessee, Senor Stiff had a new pitch, telling old supporters he had erred in allowing himself to be too programmed by pollsters and consultants in the campaign.

Larry Elder | July 05, 2002

"The soft bigotry of low expectations." President George W. Bush once used this expression to chastise America's education establishment for the underperformance of minorities, specifically blacks and Latinos.

Jonah Goldberg | July 05, 2002

Imagine if last year the United States Supreme Court had decided every one of its cases the other way around.

Mona Charen | July 05, 2002

This Fourth of July and throughout the weekend that follows, PBS will be airing a fascinating look at our indispensable Founding Father, George Washington.

Cal Thomas | July 05, 2002

Our politics suffers from a shortage of people who put character and country before career and personal gain. We need more congressmen like Rep. J.C. Watts (R-Okla.), who has announced his retirement because he believes there are things in life more important than a congressional career.

Oliver North | July 05, 2002

This week, having just returned from the G-8 summit in Canada, where he declined to back down on his call to rid the Palestinians of Yasser Arafat's corrupt and despotic "leadership," our "cowboy" president insisted, once again, on astonishing our "allies" and dismaying diplomats from every clime and place. Let's face it, our president is becoming a planetary party pooper.

Suzanne Fields | July 05, 2002

My mother was born on Flag Day and died one week shy of the Fourth of July. Over her 92 years she never saw the distinction between the personal and political, though she would never have phrased it that way.

Ben Shapiro | July 05, 2002

John Adams sat alone the night of July 2, 1776, writing to his wife, Abigail. "The second day of July 1776 will be the most memorable epocha in the history of America."

Debra J. Saunders | July 05, 2002

I don't care if she's guilty of insider trading or not. I want Martha Stewart to go to prison just because of all the "Good Things" she could do in the slammer.

Linda Chavez | July 05, 2002

Ask most Americans what the First Amendment says about religion, and you'll get the standard reply (if you're lucky enough to get any answer at all) that it guarantees the separation of church and state.

Emmett Tyrrell | July 05, 2002

One of the greatest minds of the 20th century has, in the early years of the 21st century, been vindicated!

Bruce Bartlett | July 05, 2002

With the recent announcements by WorldCom and Xerox that billions of dollars have suddenly disappeared from their previously announced earnings, investors are now focusing as much on the quality of corporate profits as their size.

Charles Krauthammer | July 05, 2002

The All-Star Game approaches, the players union is about to set a date for a strike. Barry Bonds is wrong. Baseball will not survive it.

Ross Mackenzie | July 05, 2002

Perhaps the best thing regarding that 9th Circuit Court panel's dilatory vaporing about "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance was the public's dissing response.

Robert Novak | July 05, 2002

James Carville, ferociously partisan, seldom fires on a fellow Democrat. Nevertheless, he was not pleased by Al Gore's performance in Memphis last weekend.

Larry Kudlow | July 05, 2002

Last week, Alan Greenspan & Co. told us that the Federal Reserve's monetary policy is "accommodative" to economic recovery, which in a perfect world would be a realistic assessment. Problem is, this is far from a perfect world.

John McCaslin | July 05, 2002

The State Department wants the rest of the world to hear that the United States, for the time being at least, remains "under God."

Wed, Jul 03, 2002

Walter E. Williams | July 03, 2002

President Bush said he was "deeply concerned" about some of the accounting practices in corporate America and called "outrageous" the disclosure that WorldCom, which is $32 billion in debt, had hidden $3.8 billion in expenses.

Jonah Goldberg | July 03, 2002

We now know that barring the unforeseen, nothing will stop the USS Gore from dashing itself on the rocks of historic electoral defeat, again.

David Limbaugh | July 03, 2002

Emboldened by the bizarre 9th Circuit Court of Appeals three-judge panel decision that the teacher-led recital of the Pledge of Allegiance is unconstitutional, plaintiff Michael Newdow is seeking other religious dragons to slay.

Dennis Prager | July 03, 2002

All those who disagree with American support of Israel -- the Arab world and its supporters in America such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the left and the State Department (privately, if not publicly) -- explain American support of Israel by attributing it to the "pro-Israel lobby" and its alleged power over Congress.

Pat Buchanan | July 03, 2002

When the U.N. Security Council rejected America's demand for immunity for U.S. soldiers in the Bosnian peace force from arrest and prosecution by the International Criminal Court, the United States vetoed an extension of the force. Either our troops get immunity, or our troops get out.

Kathleen Parker | July 03, 2002

I learned that Claude T. Anderson had died the same way I learned that he existed -through an e-mail from a stranger.

Joel Mowbray | July 03, 2002

On Fox News Sunday this weekend, Secretary of State Colin Powell told host Tony Snow, “We have been very appreciative of the role that Saudi Arabia has played, and especially Crown Prince Abdullah, in putting forward a vision for the Palestinian people of how we can find a solution to this crisis.”

Armstrong Williams | July 03, 2002

On July 4, 1776, our forefathers set about creating conditions by which every American has a chance to better himself, to determine his own fate, to pursue happiness on his own terms, or most importantly, simply to be left alone.

John McCaslin | July 03, 2002

"Liberals don't have to emerge from the hot tub and start attending NASCAR races or - God forbid - church, but it would be nice if they'd stop lying all the time."

Thomas Sowell | July 02, 2002

The court cases that get the most media attention are not necessarily the cases that will have the most impact on the society.

Phyllis Schlafly | July 02, 2002

It seems self-evident that no individual should be allowed to own a law that all of us must obey. Laws and regulations are adopted, we hope, through the process of self-government, and citizens must enjoy the right to copy and restate the laws.

Bill Murchison | July 02, 2002

What does the Texas Democratic gubernatorial nominee oppose? School vouchers. Who's clapping? The Texas Association of School Administrators.

Frank Gaffney | July 02, 2002

Late last week, President Bush once again showed the stuff of which he is made.

Maggie Gallagher | July 02, 2002

I just returned from a trip to Boston. We saw Paul Revere heroically mounted upon his horse. We saw Faneuil Hall, cradle of liberty, meticulously restored and still in use as a town meeting place.

Bruce Bartlett | July 02, 2002

Many of the senators voting against permanent repeal of the estate tax on June 12 cited "fiscal responsibility" as their reason for doing so. It was often said that permanent repeal would "cost" the federal government $740 billion -- money that is needed to pay future Social Security benefits and other critical government needs.

Marvin Olasky | July 02, 2002

On July Fourth this year, we can do more than venerate the Declaration of Independence; we can learn from its embrace of coalition politics.

Joel Mowbray | July 02, 2002

With tears welling up in his robotic eyes, Minority Leader Dick Gephardt (D-MO) showed a rare flash of emotion as he recounted how his 94-year-old mother worried about the cost of her prescription drugs.

Jack Kemp | July 02, 2002

As I like to remind folks around this time of the year, in 1776, at the founding of America, there was a Holy Roman Empire, Venice was a republic, France was ruled by a king, China by an emperor, Russia by an empress, Great Britain was a constitutional monarchy and Japan was ruled by a shogun.

Pat Buchanan | July 01, 2002

"I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical." So Jefferson wrote to fellow Virginian James Madison in the year Madison authored his country's Constitution.

Suzanne Fields | July 01, 2002

Arin Ahmed, though already 20, looked like a typical American teen-ager, in tight pants and a short shirt exposing a bare midriff.

John Leo | July 01, 2002

By revealing so clearly the foam-at-the-mouth hostility to religion that grips our elites, the 9th Circuit's "under God" decision is proving a Godsend, although the two hapless judges in the majority would probably insist that we refer to it simply as a "send."

Robert Novak | July 01, 2002

To make his historic call for a Palestinian state palatable for Israel and its allies in Congress, Bush demanded removal from power of Yasser Arafat. But, it quickly became clear, that strengthened the old guerrilla leader's sagging position with Palestinians and in the broader Arab world.
