David Limbaugh | January 04, 2003

Regardless of whether a cloned human being was actually born as claimed, our society should use this disturbing report constructively by hastening our ethical evaluation of human cloning.

Cal Thomas | January 04, 2003

It's 2004 at last, and another presidential campaign year can be said to have officially begun.

Joel Mowbray | January 04, 2003

When the President unveils his new economic growth package on Tuesday, at the center of the initiative will be an idea that was not anywhere on the political map just four months ago: the elimination of the double-taxation of dividend income.

Robert Novak | January 04, 2003

New York City may lose the 2004 Republican National Convention because Mayor Michael Bloomberg's attitude offended national Republican operatives.

Thomas Sowell | January 03, 2003

This is almost certain to be a historic year -- whether because we begin to break the back of international terrorism, beginning with Iraq, or because international terrorism begins scoring major victories, beginning with North Korea's brazen nuclear challenge.

Michelle Malkin | January 03, 2003

If you thought the New Year's Eve FBI manhunt for illegal aliens with fake passports was a disturbing sign of homeland insecurity, wait until you hear about who's been working on President George W. Bush's front lawn.

Brent Bozell | January 03, 2003

If parents find the new "reality TV" lows of American television too intense for their young children, they might be oddly comforted to know that popular culture in other countries is sinking even lower.

Jonah Goldberg | January 03, 2003

The Iraqi "press" -which is more like Saddam Hussein's bulletin board -has been hysterical about the "double standard" we're applying to Iraq and North Korea.

Mona Charen | January 03, 2003

John Edwards, the handsome, and comely, and attractive senator from North Carolina (well, those are his chief assets) has announced plans to seek the Democratic nomination for president.

Oliver North | January 03, 2003

Despite what he and his pundit pals say about wanting to spare the country from a divisive and gut-wrenching presidential rematch, Al Gore withdrew from the Democrat presidential primary for one reason: because he knew that he could not defeat the widely popular incumbent President George W. Bush, who is providing strong leadership in challenging times.

Pat Buchanan | January 03, 2003

If Republicans thought that tossing Trent Lott off the sleigh would slow the pursuing wolves, they were mistaken.

Jacob Sullum | January 03, 2003

"Everything people used to say about marijuana is true of angel dust." So claimed Robert DuPont, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, in 1977.

Charles Krauthammer | January 03, 2003

When the secretary of state goes on five Sunday morning talk shows to deny that something is a crisis, it is a crisis.

Bruce Bartlett | January 03, 2003

As the new year begins, I want to start by giving thanks for something that happened last year: blogs.

John McCaslin | January 03, 2003

Don't look now, but Americans are "Immoral, Fat, Lazy, Stupid."

Thu, Jan 02, 2003

Ann Coulter | January 02, 2003

Most journalists are so stupid, the fact that they are also catty, lazy, vengeful and humorless is often overlooked.

Suzanne Fields | January 02, 2003

Today's the day to test our new year resolutions - from the ridiculous to the sublime, from getting into shape to shaping a better world.

Ben Shapiro | January 02, 2003

This year highlighted a battle for the heart and soul of this country that began in the 1960s.

William F. Buckley | January 02, 2003

It is a historical opportunity lost that Trent Lott didn't pause while going down in flames. He might have made a point worth thinking about, in his progressive apology on the matter of Strom Thurmond's campaign of 1948.

Robert Novak | January 02, 2003

The relief felt by Republican senators on Dec. 23 at concluding the two-week-long Trent Lott nightmare immediately turned to quiet apprehension when they heard Sen. Bill Frist's impromptu acceptance speech as the new Senate Republican leader.

Joel Mowbray | January 02, 2003

Everyone makes New Year’s resolutions, but what people should do instead this year is to tell elected officials that what we all need is for the government to finally get serious about securing our borders.

Larry Kudlow | January 02, 2003

U.S. war-making plans are intensifying for regime change in Iraq, the Iranians are building new nuclear weapons, and the nuke-making North Koreans are selling scud missiles to Yemen and building more of their own.

Ross Mackenzie | January 02, 2003

The matter of Saddam ought to be concentrating the American mind on America's need for energy independence.

Wed, Jan 01, 2003

Michelle Malkin | January 01, 2003

According to intelligence sources, these five Middle Eastern or South Asian men are illegal aliens who recently snuck into America from Canada.

Walter E. Williams | January 01, 2003

What I celebrate as a source of pride and self-esteem is the fact that I have brown eyes. You say, "Williams, that goes to prove what we've been saying all along.

Brent Bozell | January 01, 2003

Whether we want to believe it or not, the scientific nightmare of human cloning is approaching reality.

Jonah Goldberg | January 01, 2003

I must confess, it's not as easy to pick winners and losers outside the world of politics as it is inside. In Washington, we keep score 24/7.

Cal Thomas | January 01, 2003

It is the 30th anniversary month of the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision, which, along with subsequent rulings, allows abortion on demand at any time and for any reason.

Linda Chavez | January 01, 2003

After a dangerous confrontation with the United States in 1994 over diverting nuclear material from a power plant to bomb-building, Kim Jong-il began courting world leaders. That year, he seduced two American presidents, former president Jimmy Carter and then-president Bill Clinton by signing an agreement.

George Will | January 01, 2003

Happy New Year. The most dangerous epoch in history--it lasted less than 20 years--may have been in the 14th century, when bubonic plague killed more than half the populations of Europe and Asia.

John McCaslin | January 01, 2003

Incoming Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.): "I resolve to do exercises each day to keep my spine stiff."

David Limbaugh | December 31, 2002

The new year approaches and, like many others, I consider what lies ahead, the promises and the challenges. What kind of world, or more precisely, what kind of America will we bequeath our children?

Mona Charen | December 31, 2002

I don't believe that the Raelians have cloned a human baby. Call me an incurable cynic if you will, but there it is.

Cal Thomas | December 31, 2002

Just as some of us are resolving to lose weight in the New Year, so, too, should the Bush administration and the states concentrate on putting bloated government on a diet.

Dennis Prager | December 31, 2002

No issue has a greater influence on determining your social and political views than whether you view human nature as basically good or not.

Diana West | December 31, 2002

I'm not reading about Time magazine's "persons" of the year. Nothing against chosen "persons" Cynthia Cooper, Sherron Watkins or Coleen Rowley -- "women who took huge risks to blow the whistle on what went wrong at Worldcom, Enron, and the FBI."

Phyllis Schlafly | December 31, 2002

Copyright extremists are working to control as much information as possible. Almost every week we see a new example of how they are thwarting the free flow of information.

Bill Murchison | December 31, 2002

Taking Old Man Mencken's measure is an ongoing job, so varied was his career, so many were its dimensions, both intellectual and personal.

Jack Kemp | December 31, 2002

I was really disappointed to read in the Wall Street Journal last week that some officials inside the Bush administration are attempting to convince the president neither to accelerate the 2001 income-tax rate reductions nor to shorten the period of time that companies must wait to write off investment in new plant and equipment.

Rich Lowry | December 31, 2002

Democratic presidential candidates, from Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman to Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, have begun to challenge George Bush at the core of his political strength, arguing that he hasn't done enough to prosecute the war on terror or protect the homeland.

Marvin Olasky | December 31, 2002

The latest liberal attempt to blacklist pro-life conservatives failed last week. The Bush administration finally appointed W. David Hager, a University of Kentucky obstetrician-gynecologist, to the Food and Drug Administration's advisory committee for reproductive health drugs.

Armstrong Williams | December 31, 2002

This New Year, I would like to offer a rather profound insight: Tiger Woods has a bank account that rocks big time.

Bruce Bartlett | December 31, 2002

New Year's Day is a time for making resolutions, so I am going to make one today. I resolve to do more in the future to correct the economic misinformation that appears in the news pages of major newspapers. This is hard work because there is so much of it.

Thomas Sowell | December 30, 2002

Some state universities are having smaller and smaller proportions of their costs paid for by the states, and some people are talking about the possibility of their ceasing to be state universities at all.

Pat Buchanan | December 30, 2002

Now, as a co-architect of the Nixon strategy that gave the GOP a lock on the White House for a quarter century, let me say that Kristol's opportunism is matched only by his ignorance.

Suzanne Fields | December 30, 2002

"Healing" is a soppy and much abused word, a mantra of hip psychology, but it has been given new meaning by the new Republican majority leader.

Debra J. Saunders | December 30, 2002

Interior Secretary Gale Norton recalls that she started 2002 facing a barrage of advertisements against oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve sponsored by the Sierra Club and the National Council of Churches.

Maggie Gallagher | December 30, 2002

With a new year almost here, and a new majority leader in place, what have we learned about America and American politics in the last few weeks?

John Leo | December 30, 2002

Hillary Clinton has surprised many of us by behaving like a serious mainstream politician for more than two years. But the strain is showing.

George Will | December 30, 2002

The Supreme Court will rule, perhaps before July, on the constitutionality of restrictions on political communication imposed by the 2002 campaign finance law (McCain-Feingold), the premise of which--substituting concision for precision--is that there is ``too much'' money in politics.

Kathleen Parker | December 30, 2002

The first chapter of Doug Marlette's novel, "The Bridge," is titled: "A Gift for P***ing People Off."

Robert Novak | December 30, 2002

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) bureaucrats have until the witching hour of midnight New Year's Eve to satisfy their fellow tax collectors in Europe and close down the American tax shelter.

William F. Buckley | December 30, 2002

It is thought, in blase circles, rather bad form to pass on good news. But this is New Year time, and the Cato Institute has reissued a rhapsody of Coueisms
