Speaking at the PUSH-Rainbow convention in Chicago Tuesday, America's first black president, Bill Clinton, called on the United States to increase its funding of AIDS from $1 billion to $2.5 billion. Is there no limit to his approval-starved pandering?

Kathleen Parker | July 27, 2002

Robert Novak | July 27, 2002

One influential Democratic contributor, whose support for Gore dates back to 1988, was solicited for the former vice president's political action committee.

Michelle Malkin | July 26, 2002

Jonah Goldberg | July 26, 2002

As the so-called Sarbanes bill -loudly touted as the most sweeping financial reform legislation in 60 years, and quietly derided as a disaster waiting to happen -wends its way to President Bush's desk it might be worth asking what, exactly, the bill will do.

Mona Charen | July 26, 2002

If we lived in a world where universal sympathy were directed toward Israel for the horrors it suffers daily, the criticism aimed at Israel after last week's attack on Salah Shehada would be less disgusting.

Oliver North | July 26, 2002

Debra J. Saunders | July 26, 2002

So here I am in Seattle, America's coffee capital, and the flacks at Starbucks won't even talk to me about the measure on Berkeley's November ballot that would require coffeehouses to sell only Fair Trade, organic or shade-grown coffee.

Jacob Sullum | July 26, 2002

John McCaslin | July 26, 2002

Thomas Sowell | July 25, 2002

Milton Friedman's 90th birthday on July 31st provides an occasion to think back on his role as the pre-eminent economist of the 20th century. To those of us who were privileged to be his students, he also stands out as a great teacher.

Brent Bozell | July 25, 2002

Just how bizarre has the state of the youth culture become?

Larry Elder | July 25, 2002

I am getting really sick of people who whine about "civilian casualties."

Emmett Tyrrell | July 25, 2002

Some money sages, witnessing the stock market's decline, are heartened that Congress is promising to apply therapy. They hear that Sen. Tom Daschle and Rep. Richard Gephardt are beating their hairy chests over accounting derelictions and corporate chicanery, and they let out a shout of gratitude.

Larry Kudlow | July 25, 2002

It is often said that the stock market is driven by fear and greed. If greed was the dominant psychology of the market's rise in 1999 and 2000, certainly fear is the watchword for the Panic of '02.

Ross Mackenzie | July 25, 2002

OK, might as well go ahead and employ crisis that over-employed word. We have a full-blown financial crisis. Let's think about it.

The sharp fall in the stock market is wreaking havoc with economic forecasts these days. Economists cannot decide whether it means something or nothing. And if it means something, they are not sure if it is a cause or an effect.

Michelle Malkin | July 24, 2002

David Limbaugh | July 24, 2002

Dennis Prager | July 24, 2002

As a parent of three children, one of whom is 9 years old, I surely understand this fear. But we harm our children and our society when we instill a fear of strangers in them.

Pat Buchanan | July 24, 2002

John McCaslin | July 24, 2002

The Republican Party's relationship with black voters has been tenuous at best over the last 40 years.

Kathleen Parker | July 24, 2002

Thomas Sowell | July 23, 2002

Late last month, as we came in for a gravel runway landing at this barren spot north of the Arctic circle, I thought of an e-mail I had recently received from a liberal friend.

Jonah Goldberg | July 22, 2002

Critics say that the recent alleged police brutality in Inglewood, Calif., is just like the Rodney King case. They're right, but for the wrong reasons.

Robert Novak | July 22, 2002
