David Limbaugh | January 25, 2003

One thing is strikingly clear: the pro-abortion lobby still wields veto power over the Democratic presidential nomination process.

Robert Novak | January 25, 2003

United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan quietly slipped into the White House Wednesday night for an unannounced high-level dinner hosted by President and Mrs. Bush in the Red Room.

Michelle Malkin | January 24, 2003

Prediction: On one of the most pressing homeland security issues facing the nation, President Bush will have nothing -- nada -- to say during his State of the Union address.

Brent Bozell | January 24, 2003

The typical American child today cannot escape the bombardment of sexuality, in every medium, at every moment, day or night. It happens at the movies. It happens on television. It happens on the radio. It certainly happens in advertising.

Jonah Goldberg | January 24, 2003

Philosophers dedicate their lives studying the "Is vs. Ought" dichotomy. But we don't have time for all of that. Instead let's just look at the United Nations.

Mona Charen | January 24, 2003

From marchers in Washington, D.C., chanting, "Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld -- the Real Axis of Evil," to Teddy Kennedy offering his warmed-over appeasement to the National Press Club, the past couple of weeks have offered a telling snapshot of American liberalism.

Oliver North | January 24, 2003

On Wednesday, Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair will sit down to map out "next steps" for dealing with Iraq. By Friday, every pundit with an inkwell and pollster with a telephone will be taking pot shots at the president.

Debra J. Saunders | January 24, 2003

Do the French owe the United States for saving its bacon in World War II? Mais oui. They at least owe us some respect, and the same benefit of the doubt that they are so happy to bestow on Saddam Hussein.

Jacob Sullum | January 24, 2003

If John Lee Malvo and John Allen Muhammad deserve to die, does it matter how they get the death penalty? I think it does, and so should anyone who values the rule of law.

Charles Krauthammer | January 24, 2003

The window of legitimacy--that interval during which the United States could mass its forces around Iraq and prepare for war, ostensibly in the name of the United Nations--is now officially closed.

Larry Kudlow | January 24, 2003

President Bush's surprise announcement to abolish the double tax on dividends sparked the best early year stock market gain in 15 years. But now we hear the usual drab worries over the economic recovery, corporate profits and the potential military invasion of Iraq. Meanwhile, the market rally has dissipated.

John McCaslin | January 24, 2003

Few senators, past or present, have made their presence felt as often as former Democratic Sen. Carol Moseley-Braun, the first black woman ever elected to the Senate who now wants to become the nation's first black - and female - president.

Ann Coulter | January 23, 2003

All the blather about the University of Michigan race discrimination case has at least proved one thing: The Supreme Court's abandonment of legal reasoning has taken the public by storm!

Thomas Sowell | January 23, 2003

Angelo Marinda was a cute little baby but he never lived to see his first birthday because he was another victim of a widespread pretense of knowledge that has produced many tragedies.

Larry Elder | January 23, 2003

Yao Ming, the new 22-year-old National Basketball Association sensation, imported from mainland China, recently gave athletes, reporters and America a lesson in poise and grace -- except the display did not take place on the basketball court.

Jonah Goldberg | January 23, 2003

When it comes to "Well, duh" headlines, "France Is Being a Pain in the Keester" has to rank just behind "Bears Use Woods as Bathroom."

Cal Thomas | January 23, 2003

The Washington Post reported last Sunday (Jan. 19) that many Republican governors are proposing tax increases to close the gap and abide by their state constitutions which require balanced budgets.

Ben Shapiro | January 23, 2003

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the media finds as many ways as possible to tell Americans that King's dream has not yet come true.

Emmett Tyrrell | January 23, 2003

Of the poor, it has been said, "Ye shall always have with ye." The same might also be said of peace movements. They are always with us, even in time of peace, and even when a Hitler or a Mao is rattling a saber.

Robert Novak | January 23, 2003

White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales succeeded in weakening the government's intervention in the University of Michigan racial preference dispute, but at a potentially heavy personal cost.

Bruce Bartlett | January 23, 2003

One of the hardest things to understand about economics is that policies generally impact on the economy only with a lag. That is, an action by the government today may not actually affect the economy for months or even years. It takes time for policies to take effect and change economic behavior.

George Will | January 23, 2003

Schumer may be one of those baby boomers who believes that their existence, in all its perfection, is the great and final goal toward which the universe has been striving since the Big Bang.

Michelle Malkin | January 22, 2003

You don't know me, but I know who you are, and I will not forget.

Walter E. Williams | January 22, 2003

A typical belief among the world's foreign aid agencies is there's a "vicious cycle of poverty" that makes economic development virtually impossible for the world's poor nations.

David Limbaugh | January 22, 2003

This round of weapons inspections in Iraq, from the United States' perspective at least, was never about looking for a smoking gun but giving Saddam Hussein one last chance to come clean.

Cal Thomas | January 22, 2003

British Prime Minister Tony Blair is no Margaret Thatcher, but he sounded like her clone when he took to the floor of the House of Commons last Wednesday (Jan. 15) during the weekly Question Time and gave a spirited defense for the necessity of toppling Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

Debra J. Saunders | January 22, 2003

Of the many slurs flung my way in reader e-mails, the one that really frosts me -- and can be printed in a family newspaper -- is "SUV driver."

Linda Chavez | January 22, 2003

Like laundry lists and New Year's resolutions, most presidential State of the Union addresses are discarded from the memory bank shortly after they're delivered.

Bill Murchison | January 22, 2003

The pivot point in President Bush's statement last week opposing affirmative action in college admissions has gone, so far as I can tell, unremarked: not least because the president himself gave it little prominence.

Joel Mowbray | January 22, 2003

With the day of reckoning with Iraq looming, those who would rather ignore the threat posed by Saddam Hussein have found a favorite new red herring in North Korea. On the surface, it seems like inverted priorities: the country without nuclear weapons is on the brink of forcible disarmament, while the nation with a very much active nuclear program gets an olive branch.

Kathleen Parker | January 22, 2003

On the 30th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, activists on both sides of the abortion divide are re-evaluating strategies and sketching new lines in the sand.

Jack Kemp | January 22, 2003

President Bush has played his cards well on Iraq, and we are so close to victory that it would be a tragedy if a few war hawks pushed us into an unnecessary invasion and occupation of an Arab country.

Brent Bozell | January 21, 2003

Washingtonians opened their top newspaper on Sunday, Jan. 19 to see what could have been predicted down to the letter.

Mona Charen | January 21, 2003

Selective colleges like the University of Michigan practice a blatant form of racial preference, yet they attempt to obscure this truth with all their might. Race, they insist, is only one factor among many they consider when evaluating each individual applicant.

Dennis Prager | January 21, 2003

The odds are that you have wondered at one time or another why the great majority of Jews and nearly all blacks vote Democrat. There are, after all, no other ethnic or racial groups that so overwhelmingly and consistently vote either Republican or Democrat.

Debra J. Saunders | January 21, 2003

File it under the category of Sounds Good -- well, at first anyway. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted last week to designate pet owners as pet "owners or guardians."

Diana West | January 21, 2003

Breaking news from Saudi Arabia: "U.S. women interact with local populace." According to the Arab News, actual "female" Americans of the Saudi-American Exchange Program met with a bona fide Saudi "female date farmer." The reason?

Phyllis Schlafly | January 21, 2003

President Bush is celebrating the first anniversary of his No Child Left Behind Education law and hopes it will give a significant boost to his re-election in 2004.

Frank Gaffney | January 21, 2003

The current buzz is that the Saudis, Egyptians, Turks and others are plotting to have Saddam Hussein removed from power -- either voluntarily with a “golden parachute” exile package for him and his family, or involuntarily via possibly violent action.

Bruce Bartlett | January 21, 2003

Last week, I had the opportunity to debate the estate tax with Bill Gates Sr., father of the Microsoft founder. He was in Washington to promote a new book he has co-authored on why the estate tax should be kept and not abolished in 2010, as current law dictates.

Rich Lowry | January 21, 2003

The problem with America's poor kids is that they're too fat.

Marvin Olasky | January 21, 2003

Bush 41 compromised more as his presidency wore on. Next week's State of the Union address will emphasize that Bush 43 is returning to principle on many domestic issues after a tepid first two years.

Mon, Jan 20, 2003

Pat Buchanan | January 20, 2003

Unfortunately, President Bush's powerful words condemning the raced-based admissions tests at the University of Michigan did not extend to the entire idea of "affirmative action."

Debra J. Saunders | January 20, 2003

Leaders of the Left have stooped to hiding behind the poor in order to win the war of words over war with Iraq.

William F. Buckley | January 20, 2003

There is great moaning in New York City because Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced his intention to reduce the police department budget by 3 percent.

George Will | January 20, 2003

Illinois Gov. George Ryan's commutation of the death sentences of all 167 inmates in Illinois prisons is another golden moment for liberals that underscores how many of their successes are tarnished by being explicitly, even exuberantly anti-democratic.

Robert Novak | January 20, 2003

At 8:15 last Wednesday night, the party leaders -- Republican Bill Frist and Democrat Tom Daschle -- took the floor of the Senate to end nine of the strangest days in that chamber's storied history.

Kathleen Parker | January 20, 2003

Just when you thought the white male could stoop no lower, PETA tells us that white men don't care about animal cruelty.

John Leo | January 20, 2003

The University of Michigan set up a preference system so clearly illegal that it was jettisoned soon after one campus professor, Carl Cohen, forced it out into the open through a Freedom of Information request.
