David Limbaugh | October 19, 2002

I know some of you out there actually harbor this fantasy that Christian conservatives want to subsume the government and convert it into a happy theocracy for Jesus, but you're wrong.

Robert Novak | October 19, 2002

Congress on Wednesday effectively closed shop until the week after the election, without officially adjourning.

Thomas Sowell | October 18, 2002

It was perhaps inevitable that the recent sniper killings in the Washington area suburbs would be seized upon by advocates of gun control.

Michelle Malkin | October 18, 2002

The families of nine people killed in the Washington, D.C., area are not alone in wondering whether their loved ones died at the hands of domestic madmen or foreign terrorists.

Brent Bozell | October 18, 2002

Several years ago, I met a man with an extraordinary story. "Ernesto" (since he would request anonymity, I'm not using his real name) was a Mexican who had migrated to the States and applied for citizenship.

Jonah Goldberg | October 18, 2002

Of all the reactions to North Korea's admission that it has been secretly defying its promise not to develop nuclear weapons -- shock, fear, etc. -- the one most in order is some good old-fashioned finger-pointing.

Mona Charen | October 18, 2002

President Bill Clinton will be remembered by history for only one thing, which is a bit of a shame since his record is so thoroughly shabby and dishonorable that it deserves closer study.

Oliver North | October 18, 2002

When I was in London last, the British, especially the elites, were engaging in anti-American rhetoric the likes of which I had not previously witnessed.

Debra J. Saunders | October 18, 2002

To the California Federation of Teachers, it's not the war on terrorism, but the "so-called war on terrorism" -- and the CFT wants no part of it.

Rich Tucker | October 18, 2002

Television hates a vacuum. Folks in the business call that silent space when nobody’s talking “dead air”. They’ll do whatever it takes to fill that space because dead air causes viewers to change the channel.

Jacob Sullum | October 18, 2002

In 1991, after George Hennard shot 22 people to death at a Luby's cafeteria in Killeen, Texas, Sarah Brady said the mass murder showed the need for a federal ban on "assault weapons."

John McCaslin | October 18, 2002

Terrorism and national security are the hot luncheon topics of the day.

Charles Krauthammer | October 18, 2002

On Sept. 12, President Bush went to the United Nations to make his case against Iraq. It has been more than a month now, and the U.N. has done nothing.

Bruce Bartlett | October 18, 2002

As the stock market struggles to maintain a sustained rally, the critical question is whether we are seeing a rebound in corporate profits. Ultimately, stock prices are based on profitability.

Ann Coulter | October 17, 2002

Probably feeling "humiliated," in 1989, a mob of feral beasts descended on Central Park to attack joggers and bicyclists.

Larry Elder | October 17, 2002

Singer/activist Harry Belafonte viciously lashed out at Secretary of State Colin Powell, calling Powell a house slave and a lackey to "master" George W. Bush.

Cal Thomas | October 17, 2002

Democrats lament that the presumptive war with Iraq has kept them from focusing the public's attention on domestic issues.

Suzanne Fields | October 17, 2002

Memphis boasts that it's the home of the blues and the birthplace of rock and roll, but it's the ghosts of two famous men that hover close over the revival of the city that Time magazine not so long ago dismissed as a decaying Mississippi River backwater.

Emmett Tyrrell | October 17, 2002

Most believe that the killer or killers are relatively young, and I assume most agree with me that the killer or killers are moviegoers.

Robert Novak | October 17, 2002

Inside the Senate Republican establishment, there is a difference of opinion about Republican Sen. Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island.

Larry Kudlow | October 17, 2002

There is a new plus that is more powerful than temporary tax rebates and much healthier than outsized federal spending increases.

Jack Kemp | October 17, 2002

The Iraqi government, after much deceit, evasion and obstruction, has said yes to letting weapons inspectors back into the country

Ross Mackenzie | October 17, 2002

The D.C. area's suburban sniper reminds us of nothing quite so much as the importance of taking down Saddam Hussein.

Thomas Sowell | October 16, 2002

Perhaps the massive bomb blast on the Indonesian island of Bali will cause some second thoughts -- or perhaps first thoughts -- by those who blamed the United States for having provoked the September 11th attacks by its actions and policies in the Middle East.

Michelle Malkin | October 16, 2002

He struck during morning rush hour. He used an AK-47 rifle. He killed two people and wounded three outside the CIA headquarters in Langley, Va. Then, he slipped out of the country and eluded authorities for four, long years.

Walter E. Williams | October 16, 2002

Here's what I said in last year's November column: "George Mason University economists are leaders in economic thinking.

Jonah Goldberg | October 16, 2002

In the wake of recent al-Qaida-related attacks on U.S. Marines in Kuwait, a French tanker off the coast of Yemen and a horrendous bombing on the Indonesian island of Bali, President Bush told reporters Monday, "It does look like a pattern of attacks that the enemy, albeit on the run, is trying to once again frighten and kill freedom-loving people."

David Limbaugh | October 16, 2002

Gun control opportunists have wasted no time exploiting the serial sniper shootings as if on a mission to undermine those who insist they be taken seriously.

Dennis Prager | October 16, 2002

I had always thought that New Jersey-jokes were neither funny nor in good taste. I was wrong.

Pat Buchanan | October 16, 2002

When Congress voted to grant President Bush the power to launch a pre-emptive war, at a time of his own choosing, on a nation that has not attacked the United States, it reached its nadir.

Ben Shapiro | October 16, 2002

The Internet and talk radio have brought with their rise a new kind of media democracy, where privilege and education do not make kings.

Debra J. Saunders | October 16, 2002

In New York, Mayor Michael Bloomberg didn't march in the Columbus Day parade because its sponsors made him an offer he could easily refuse:

Linda Chavez | October 16, 2002

What does it take to get fired from a federal job? Apparently, admitting terrorists into the country won't do it, even when they fly into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Phyllis Schlafly | October 16, 2002

Al Gore and his allies in the media have popularized the notion that an election loser can use the courts to change the rules. Activist judges have been rewriting laws for many years, but now the trend is for activist state judges to try to rig an election. This is a very bad idea.

Armstrong Williams | October 16, 2002

John Ashcroft's appointment as attorney general raised serious questions about whether morality and law make the best of bedfellows.

John McCaslin | October 16, 2002

Last week, after the tireless persuasion of the current President Bush, it turns out a far greater number in Congress - 296 Republicans and Democrats - voted to support a similar resolution to attack Iraq.

Kathleen Parker | October 16, 2002

The flap over Andy Rooney's bitchy remarks about women reporters on the NFL sidelines demonstrates how far we've come and how little we've learned.

Thomas Sowell | October 15, 2002

The politicization of prizes was never more blatantly revealed than in the comments of two of the members of the committee that awarded former president Jimmy Carter the Nobel Prize for peace.

Brent Bozell | October 15, 2002

Journalism is never more amoral than when dictators are the mandatory "get" for a news puff piece.

Mona Charen | October 15, 2002

Something unusual is happening during this recession, but you will not hear about it on television news nor likely read about it in your local paper.

Cal Thomas | October 15, 2002

When I was growing up in the Washington, D.C., area, my parents told me about unsafe neighborhoods. I was not to go there, especially at night, because I could get shot and killed.

Debra J. Saunders | October 15, 2002

Hmmmm. Bill Simon's gubernatorial campaign and his consultant Sal Russo gave almost $500,000 to the dubious California Organization of Police and Sheriffs (COPS) and its lobbyist, Kelly Moran.

Marvin Olasky | October 15, 2002

American editorial pages are quick to protest laws, regulations, court rulings or community pressures that could produce a "chilling effect" on free speech and freedom of the press.

Bruce Bartlett | October 15, 2002

Republicans are sanguine and Democrats are frustrated going into the midterm elections, now just three weeks away.

Suzanne Fields | October 14, 2002

There she goes, out of the closet and ahead of the curve(s). Who says an Atlantic City bathing beauty is all looks, legs and perfect teeth? Erika Harold is all of that, and then some. But Miss America 2003 has a little attitude, too.

Diana West | October 14, 2002

When President Bush told all the nation this week -- except those poor saps stuck on the news-blackout networks of CBS, ABC and NBC -- "we have every reason to assume the worst," he wasn't exaggerating.

Maggie Gallagher | October 14, 2002

You may not have heard President Bush's speech on Iraq Monday night because only one network (Fox News) chose to carry the president's first major domestic address on what it will take to avoid war with Iraq:

William F. Buckley | October 14, 2002

A single day's news sometimes looks like the distillate of an irony factory. It's there to remind us of contradictory human behavior on almost every scale, reaching back into history and projecting paradoxes for tomorrow.

Robert Novak | October 14, 2002

Now that Congress has droned through a week of largely desultory debate to authorize the use of force against Iraq, how will it be exercised? That is properly a military secret, unknown even to members of Congress. More questionable, it is also unknown to senior military officers.

George Will | October 14, 2002

This election season, entering its final three weeks, illuminates Democrats' problems and foreshadows the contest for their 2004 presidential nomination. Consider Al Gore and the Goldberg Possibility.

John Leo | October 14, 2002

If you think, as I do, that we are living in the golden age of dubious legal coercion, there is plenty of evidence to support your view.

Kathleen Parker | October 14, 2002

Seldom do the consequences of one's actions present themselves with such blunt force as when Nicola McManus came face-to-face with a jar containing the remains of her just-aborted, nine-week fetus.
