David Limbaugh | December 14, 2002

I assume that many of you fellow right-wing conspirators have heard about Joel Rosenberg's gripping page-turner "The Last Jihad" by now, but have you bought or read it? If you like to read fiction, especially fiction that eerily foreshadows fact, you must add this one to your library.

Robert Novak | December 14, 2002

Communications technicians at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), the only unionized employees of the Democratic Party, have been laid off indefinitely.

Joel Mowbray | December 14, 2002

At a hearing this Wednesday, Congress unfortunately made little progress in its bid to unravel a web of Saudi deceit on a number of child abduction cases where American citizen children are unable to leave the desert prison of Saudi Arabia.

Michelle Malkin | December 13, 2002

Trent Lott, the Republican Party's eternal Maalox moment, has given the Beltway's liberal pontiffs on race exactly what they crave: a big, fat excuse to extract legislative payoffs to ease their collective "pain."

Brent Bozell | December 13, 2002

'Tis the season of comfort and joy, family warmth and religious rebirth. What better way to celebrate than buying your precious young son a video game that lets him imagine himself as a murderous, whoring cocaine dealer?

Jonah Goldberg | December 13, 2002

"Surely one can burn a cross in the sanctity of one's bedroom," Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia noted this week during oral arguments in the case of Virginia v. Black. The case deals with whether or not cross-burning constitutes free speech.

Mona Charen | December 13, 2002

First, let's establish what the Trent Lott imbroglio is not. This is not just another case of liberals attempting to smear a good conservative as a racist just because he happens to oppose any of the left's pet positions on racial preferences or immigration.

Oliver North | December 13, 2002

This week, when federal authorities arrested workers at Chicago's O'Hare and Midway Airports for unlawfully possessing security badges, "open borders" advocates were outraged because several of those apprehended were illegal immigrants.

Debra J. Saunders | December 13, 2002

When a Massachusetts prison gave a weekend pass to convicted murderer Willie Horton, it released a chain of events that reverberate through America today.

Jacob Sullum | December 13, 2002

When Mayor Michael Bloomberg first proposed that New York City ban smoking in all bars and restaurants, one of his aides made a revealing comment to The New York Times. He said: "The mayor will push this for all the same reasons he pushed the cigarette tax."

John McCaslin | December 13, 2002

The vice president presented Lady Thatcher with the Heritage Foundation's Clare Boothe Luce Award, which prompted England's "Iron Lady" to break out in verse.

Ann Coulter | December 12, 2002

The New York Times is in such a lather about Augusta National Golf Club's ban on women members, it has briefly interrupted news coverage of "The Sopranos" to write about it.

Thomas Sowell | December 12, 2002

Anybody can put his foot in his mouth but making it a habit is too much, especially when you are in a position where your ill-considered words can become a permanent albatross around the necks of other people whom you are leading.

Larry Elder | December 12, 2002

So, how goes the "corporate fight for women"? Not well, at least according to The New York Times.

Cal Thomas | December 12, 2002

The buzz at Vice President Dick Cheney's Christmas reception Tuesday (Dec. 10) was about remarks by Sen. Trent Lott (R-Miss.) at a 100th birthday celebration for Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.).

Suzanne Fields | December 12, 2002

Beware the Christmas office party. There's many a slip 'twixt the cup and the lip, whether loose or puckered up. The U.S. Department of Labor advises employers to pour the ferment gingerly and never offer one "for the road." This will avoid lawsuits (and maybe save a life as well).

Linda Chavez | December 12, 2002

Senator Trent Lott could prove himself a real leader by giving up his leadership post in the Republican Party.

Phyllis Schlafly | December 12, 2002

The Bush administration delivered a double whammy on Thanksgiving eve, timed to minimize public attention.

Maggie Gallagher | December 12, 2002

Christmas is coming. You can hardly help noticing, what with Bing Crosby in the elevator, long lines at the mall, the crowded, insistent messages of the season: Buy this, eat that, do good, give some more, get some more, want some more, had enough?

Emmett Tyrrell | December 12, 2002

As Christmas approaches, American Christians might take note of the intolerance here. Their sacred shrines -- and some belonging to Judaism -- are under threat from the Islamofascists of the Palestinian Authority.

Bruce Bartlett | December 12, 2002

It is a mystery to liberals why conservatives are so adamant about cutting taxes. To them, the conservative fervor for tax cuts -- anytime, anywhere -- is irrational; almost a religious belief that is accepted on faith without any supporting evidence.

Joel Mowbray | December 12, 2002

Although the White House is not ready to initiate military action in Iraq just yet, it is poised to move one step closer to that likely eventuality by the end of the week by declaring Iraq to be in “material breach” of its United Nations-imposed obligations.

Charles Krauthammer | December 12, 2002

Trent Lott must resign as Senate majority leader. It's not just that no one who has said this can lead an American political party. It's that no one who could say something like this should be an American leader.

Robert Novak | December 12, 2002

With his economic program's outlines charted, President Bush was looking for a secretary of the Treasury and National Economic adviser who would energetically sell his tax cuts.

Jack Kemp | December 12, 2002

When he fired Secretary Paul O'Neill and chief economic adviser Larry Lindsey last week, President George W. Bush once again demonstrated that he is not afraid to make the tough and bold choices.

Ross Mackenzie | December 12, 2002

Since last we talked about medialand, developments in that hallowed realm have rollicked along with numerous highlights of frivolity and dubiety - among them these:

William F. Buckley | December 12, 2002

It needs to be stressed, especially in moments of high confusion, what the rules are for a dynamic economy.

Wed, Dec 11, 2002

Thomas Sowell | December 11, 2002

Some years, it is hard to find enough good new books to recommend to buy as Christmas presents, so I have had to recommend old favorites like The Federalist Papers or recommend gift subscriptions to magazines like The Economist.

Michelle Malkin | December 11, 2002

Being the child of left-wing domestic terrorists means never having to say you're sorry.

Walter E. Williams | December 11, 2002

Frederic Bastiat, 19th century French economist, predicted, "If goods don't cross borders, troops will."

Jonah Goldberg | December 11, 2002

I constitute one of his biggest defenders simply because I don't think he should be dumped from the GOP leadership because he's allegedly racist. I think he should be dumped because he's politically stupid.

David Limbaugh | December 11, 2002

In a recent speech, former President Bill Clinton grudgingly praised Republicans for stealing traditional Democratic issues, but failed to mention that his party is developing a new level of sophistication in co-opting issues itself.

Pat Buchanan | December 11, 2002

As the Watergate scandal of 1973-1974 diverted attention from the far greater tragedy unfolding in Southeast Asia, so, too, the scandal of predator-priests now afflicting the Catholic Church may be covering up a far greater calamity.

Ben Shapiro | December 11, 2002

It was a strange sight. The day before the Berkeley, Calif., mayoral election, a gray, 60ish man grabbed stacks of the University of California at Berkeley Daily Californian and surreptitiously threw them in the garbage.

Debra J. Saunders | December 11, 2002

Nine years ago today, Clarence Aaron was sentenced to three life sentences without parole.

Frank Gaffney | December 11, 2002

In the dark of night late last week, federal agents raided a Boston-based software firm called Ptech, Inc.

Larry Kudlow | December 11, 2002

It's likely the White House chortled Monday when President Bush offered up CSX Corp. chairman John W. Snow as the new treasury secretary.

Kathleen Parker | December 11, 2002

Just as I always suspected. Senate Republican leader Trent Lott isn't a Republican at all, but is really a Democrat.

Armstrong Williams | December 11, 2002

Of the 535 members of Congress, only one has a child or grandchild in the armed services. That lone exception being Sen. Tim Johnson of South Dakota.

John McCaslin | December 11, 2002

Al and Tipper Gore's new book, "Joined at the Heart," is described as personal and provocative.

Brent Bozell | December 10, 2002

Politicians aren't the only public figures who feel so strongly about an issue they ultimately become the story.

Mona Charen | December 10, 2002

The following memo, which might have slipped from the briefcase of a White House staffer, may have been found by a cleaning crew in Lafayette Park. Or maybe not ...

Cal Thomas | December 10, 2002

When you tell a lie, the number of words it takes to fool the listener seems directly proportional to the size of the untruth.

Dennis Prager | December 10, 2002

It was hard to miss. Just about every news organization in the Western world reported last week that french fries can kill you.

Diana West | December 10, 2002

Having resisted the Augusta National Golf Club story this long, I never expected to be sucked in.

Bill Murchison | December 10, 2002

For all the locker-room flavor of the thing, Texas A&M's sacking of its longtime, esteemed football coach, R.C. Slocum, achieves a certain cultural significance.

Bruce Bartlett | December 10, 2002

The shake-up on President Bush's economic team, with the firing of Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill and National Economic Council Director Lawrence Lindsey, is an important first step toward improving economic policy.

Armstrong Williams | December 10, 2002

Southerners are the only Americans to have lost a major war and to have had their cultural configurations torn apart.

Joel Mowbray | December 10, 2002

Sitting on the floor of his Karachi apartment, Ramzi bin al-Shieb laid out in stunning detail the anatomy of the 9/11 attacks. As one of the masterminds of September 11, he had a lot to share.

Marvin Olasky | December 10, 2002

Disappointment with Newt Gingrich's affair. Scorn for Bill Clinton. Praise for Ronald Reagan and Clarence Thomas.

Mon, Dec 09, 2002

Pat Buchanan | December 09, 2002

Just as the Battle of Gettysburg was about far more than who would control the tiny Pennsylvania town, so the Battle of Augusta National Golf Club is taking on an importance far beyond the issue of whether the famed Georgia club admits women as members.

Suzanne Fields | December 09, 2002

George Wallace, Orval Faubus and Ross Barnett were men before their time. They were merely infamous Southern governors, trying to keep their public schools segregated. They failed, but only because they never got an education at Stanford, Penn or MIT.

Debra J. Saunders | December 09, 2002

There is no way for me to know who did what in the allegation of sexual misconduct against the dean of UC-Berkeley's school of law, John Dwyer -- although Dwyer's resignation does speak volumes.

George Will | December 09, 2002

Defining bankruptcy--which actually is in United's and the nation's interest--as failure, the ad declared: ``Failure is not an option.'' Actually, failure is a fact, and was long before Wednesday's ATSB decision denying United's plea.

William F. Buckley | December 09, 2002

You know, we are trained not to be sorry for the rich, but I confess to yielding to that weakness where it's the very rich who are ridiculed. The term "billionaire" is -- check this out -- almost always used derisively, or condescendingly.

Robert Novak | December 09, 2002

Even after President Bush decided he needed a new face at the Treasury, Paul O'Neill still did not have a clue as to what was happening. He was talking tax increases when the president had decided on tax cuts.

Kathleen Parker | December 09, 2002

Wednesday night I tuned in just in time to hear Connie and her guest Jane Franklin, author of "Cuba and the United States," discussing the longevity of some of the world's most successful tyrants -Saddam Hussein and that perennial favorite, Fidel Castro.

Larry Kudlow | December 09, 2002

A week after suffering a major tax-policy defeat, Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill resigned his post. But wait a minute -- it turns out that he was asked to step down by President Bush.

John Leo | December 09, 2002

In modern journalism, radical change is often announced by a yawn-inducing headline. For instance, "Legal Group Urges States to Update Their Family Law," (New York Times, Nov. 29).
