David Limbaugh | December 07, 2002

I hate to disappoint those secretly rooting for President Bush to flounder into non-action toward Iraq, but the only way we're not going to attack is if Saddam resigns his murderous dictatorship.

Phyllis Schlafly | December 07, 2002

The clouds of election contests are behind us and a new Republican majority in both Houses of Congress will gather in January. It's time to reaffirm some basic Republican principles and move ahead with legislative implementation.

Jack Kemp | December 07, 2002

I wasn’t going to write about taxes for a second week in a row, but then I read Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill’s interview with the Financial Times, which troubled me in light of several other recent signals indicating that the Treasury may be heading in what I consider to be the wrong direction on tax reform.

Ann Coulter | December 06, 2002

Don't fall for the cheap substitute of a trial by jury when there are one-sided accounts available in the pages of the Times!

Michelle Malkin | December 06, 2002

Another public servant has been infected with an acute case of helicopteritis. You know: Flights for me, but not for thee. Traffic jams for the masses, from which government officials get free passes.

Jonah Goldberg | December 06, 2002

I officially do not get it. The British government released this week a gruesomely detailed account of human rights violations by the Iraqi government.

Mona Charen | December 06, 2002

Each morning the little white UN cars appear on our TV screens tooling around Baghdad. In the afternoon, we hear from UN Secretary General Kofi Annan that all is going well. Secretary of State Colin Powell, too, assures us that the inspections are going fine.

Oliver North | December 06, 2002

After a month of playing cat-and-mouse with Baghdad's Mad Dog, the weapons inspectors of the United Nations Monitoring Inspection and Verification Commission (UNMOVIC) are basking in the glow of global acclaim for their sterling work.

Charles Krauthammer | December 06, 2002

Is Islam an inherently violent religion? A debate on this subject has received much attention in the United States. The question is absurd.

Larry Kudlow | December 06, 2002

In law, the punishment must fit the crime. In medicine, the cure must not be worse than the disease. In the economy, a fix can only be made if the problem is identified and understood.

John Leo | December 06, 2002

Censorship is a major sport on our campuses, but every now and then, some university surprises us by doing the right thing. Take the Tom Paulin case at Harvard.

Joel Mowbray | December 06, 2002

John McCaslin | December 06, 2002

"I'm a psychiatrist. I don't usually practice on camera. But this is the edge of looniness, this idea that there's a vast conspiracy, it sits in a building, it emanates, it has these tentacles, is really at the edge. He could use a little help."

William F. Buckley | December 06, 2002

The back-and-forth at Harvard is much-noticed news almost everywhere. In Israel, to be sure, as also in the Arab press.

Rich Lowry | December 06, 2002

Thomas Sowell | December 05, 2002

Socialism is a wonderful idea. It is only as a reality that it has been disastrous. Among people of every race, color, and creed, all around the world, socialism has led to hunger in countries that used to have surplus food to export.

Brent Bozell | December 05, 2002

In our index of leading cultural indicators, one measure of the state of the youth culture is to check out the awards shows on MTV.

Suzanne Fields | December 05, 2002

Shelby Steele, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford, recalls his childhood epiphany, the exhilarating and terrifying moment when he first recognized himself as "a separate self," with independent thoughts. It was his first sense of personal responsibility.

Emmett Tyrrell | December 05, 2002

Riding through sun-splattered Tel Aviv after an arduous flight from Washington, my vision is directed toward two towering skyscrapers by my driver. "Azrieli Center," he notes. "Our Twin Towers."

Robert Novak | December 05, 2002

The capital's political languor between midterm elections and convening the new Congress was interrupted Monday by accounts in major newspapers of a news-making magazine article.

Ross Mackenzie | December 05, 2002

Yet, admirable as fostering a culture of volunteer service may be, the Bush initiative is inadequate to the problem it seeks to address.

George Will | December 05, 2002

The road to that nomination will run through South Carolina, and especially through the 6th Congressional District.

Thomas Sowell | December 04, 2002

After Senator Tom Daschle created a stir by attacking Rush Limbaugh and other conservative voices in the media as somehow responsible for death threats to politicians like himself, his total absence of any evidence made him look ridiculous.

Michelle Malkin | December 04, 2002

Buried deep in a recent New York Times story is a rather astonishing passage that shows how recklessly unserious we truly are about national security.

Walter E. Williams | December 04, 2002

We need government, and that means taxes. But when we think about government spending, and the taxes needed to finance its spending, we should also think of the effects of taxation.

Brent Bozell | December 04, 2002

Al Gore has promised if he runs again for the presidency, he's not going to hold back his opinions. He's going to "let 'er rip." If what he's been saying recently is any indication of the reinvented Gore, the campaign should be loads of fun to watch.

Jonah Goldberg | December 04, 2002

It remains unproven that Michael Dukakis was created in a German lab in a quest to create the ideal bad presidential candidate.

Mona Charen | December 04, 2002

The nation's two leading Democratic politicians have had public meltdowns in the past two weeks. First, Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D., Senate majority leader until January, claimed that Rush Limbaugh was sending hit squads to his home.

Pat Buchanan | December 04, 2002

"In Harvard Papers, a Dark Corner of the College's Past" is the headline The New York Times pasted over the story of the unearthing of Harvard's hidden sin. What was it? Did Harvard burn a heretic in the basement of the faculty club? Did Harvard condone a lynching?

Ben Shapiro | December 04, 2002

My parents taught me never to say, "I told you so." But when you're right so often, you just have to tell someone. So, for the benefit of you, the loyal reader, let me enumerate exactly how right I've been these past few months.

Debra J. Saunders | December 04, 2002

On a Monday, a colleague and I are cruising across the Bay Bridge at a handy clip -- about 50 miles an hour -- when we see a woman driving alone in a car in the center lane.

Linda Chavez | December 04, 2002

For decades colleges and universities have been choosing their students on the basis of skin color, but that may change soon. On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court announced it would take up two cases involving the University of Michigan's admissions policy.

Bruce Bartlett | December 04, 2002

In their continuing effort to understand why they suffered such a painful loss on Election Day last month, Democrats are trying to come to grips with the tax issue. The evidence thus far shows that they still "don't get it."

Marvin Olasky | December 04, 2002

I can't resist sharing some of the extraordinary examples of liberal press bias tossed my way. Masochism to read them, perhaps, but as a judge for the Media Research Center's 15th annual "awards for the year's worst reporting," it's my privilege, dear reader, to share with you some of the pain.

John McCaslin | December 04, 2002

The Justice Department's Civil Rights Division has begun a probe after getting numerous complaints from Arab- and Muslim-Americans stating that unknown individuals have "spoofed" their e-mail accounts and are sending messages, many inappropriate or offensive, in their names.

Kathleen Parker | December 04, 2002

In trying to understand why our enemies hate us so much, perhaps we're making things too complicated. Maybe we're trying too hard in our quaintly American way to rationalize the irrational. Maybe they're just crazy.

Cal Thomas | December 03, 2002

A growing conflict between some conservative Christian leaders and the Bush administration over whether Islam is a "peaceful religion" or a militaristic faith with designs on world domination is threatening the cozy relationship between the White House and some of its most loyal supporters.

Dennis Prager | December 03, 2002

Under the guise of "objectivity," virtually every major news agency, newspaper and television news network in the West is feeding its readers and viewers a morally neutral view of world events that is so distorted as to verge on mendacity.

Debra J. Saunders | December 03, 2002

While Sen. Barbara Boxer charges that new Bush administration air pollution regulations present "the most drastic clean-air rollback in more than 25 years," American Enterprise Institute fellow Steve Hayward is working out the details for a $1,000 bet that the air will be cleaner in America 10 years from now -- under the new regulations.

Diana West | December 03, 2002

It should be elementary -- literally -- but my grade-schooler's teacher got it wrong: "Thanksgiving," the teacher wrote by way of introducing a book report assignment pegged to the national holiday, "is a time when families get together to celebrate their traditions and their heritage."

Bill Murchison | December 03, 2002

One of these days, Islamic apologists, who are numerous inside and outside Islam, should explain why the "religion of peace" attracts such vast numbers of the anything-but-peaceful.

Frank Gaffney | December 03, 2002

Bill Clinton's administration was caricatured, and the last vestiges of his reputation shredded, with his famous dodge "It depends on what the definition of 'is' is."

Joel Mowbray | December 03, 2002

"Money exchanged is for time and companionship only. Anything else that may occur is a matter of personal choice between two or more consenting adults of legal age, and is not contracted for, nor is it requested to be contracted for, or compensated for in any manner."

Rich Lowry | December 03, 2002

There is an emergency at the grocery store: A jar of Folgers coffee is cheap.

Armstrong Williams | December 03, 2002

Pat Buchanan | December 02, 2002

"I think Muhammad was a terrorist ... a violent man, a man of war," said the Rev. Jerry Falwell on "60 Minutes." He added, "Jesus set the example for love. ... Muhammad set an opposite example."

Suzanne Fields | December 02, 2002

Stanford University, for example, regards itself as the birthplace of campus multiculturalism, midwifed by the Rev. Jesse Jackson, who led a pack of students in 1987 chanting "Hey, hey, ho, ho, Western Culture's got to go."

Debra J. Saunders | December 02, 2002

Thanksgiving dinner: Turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes and the most served dish of all in America ... guilt.

Maggie Gallagher | December 02, 2002

If you want to know the deepest reason why liberals have such trouble digesting the election news, take a look at the Harper's cover story by blast-from-the-past uberliberal George McGovern.

Robert Novak | December 02, 2002

In valedictory comments to fellow conservative Republican senators, retiring Sen. Phil Gramm warned of "the tyranny of the inbox" -- letting events determine their agenda. "I reminded myself every single day," he told me, "that I came here with an agenda, and my agenda was not to empty that inbox.

Kathleen Parker | December 02, 2002

The recent debate about what kind of car Jesus would drive puts me in mind of an old Doug Marlette cartoon from the days of Jim and Tammy "Praise the Lord" Bakker. It shows the familiar headshot of Jesus -rolling his eyes.

George Will | December 02, 2002

Come Wednesday, in a District of Columbia courtroom, litigation begins that will reach the Supreme Court and determine the future of political speech in America.

Bruce Bartlett | December 02, 2002
