David Limbaugh | March 08, 2003

A casual glance at recent newspaper headlines involving Democrats attacking President Bush for every imaginable reason shows how thirsty Democrats are to regain power.

Robert Novak | March 08, 2003

In a rare break of House Republican unity, GOP leaders are furious with Ways and Means Committee Chairman Bill Thomas for letting the party fall into a Democratic trap.

Joel Mowbray | March 08, 2003

Allowing an almost entirely disgraced entity one last chance for redemption, President Bush Thursday extended a final opportunity to salvage what is left of what used to be an American ally: the United Nations Security Council.

What color is a human shield? Crayola needs to invent a new hue weaker than lemonade and paler than jaundice: Traitor Yellow.

Brent Bozell | March 07, 2003

When you try to imagine the happening international destination for the next wave of pop music, the odds are strong you won't be thinking of ... Russia.

Jonah Goldberg | March 07, 2003

Martin Sheen, the left-wing star of NBC's "West Wing," complained that network execs were angry with him for taking a vocal stance against a possible war with Iraq.

Mona Charen | March 07, 2003

The solid reasons for going to war with Iraq -- and rebuilding that nation as a democracy -- are cogently and succinctly sketched in Lawrence Kaplan and William Kristol's slim volume "The War Against Iraq."

Oliver North | March 07, 2003

It is a dusty, dun-colored tent city parked on a barren, flat, windblown plain, lacking both vegetation and recognizable terrain features.

Debra J. Saunders | March 07, 2003

As former San Francisco Police Chief Tony Ribera put it Tuesday, the big advantage of a comprehensive investigation is that it "not only gets the guilty, but it clears the innocent."

Maggie Gallagher | March 07, 2003

his week, on Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of the Lenten season of repentance, the U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops has asked all good Catholics to pray and fast for peace.

Rich Tucker | March 07, 2003

The case of Miguel Estrada is illuminating. Estrada waited from May of 2001 until September of 2002 before getting his hearing. His nomination was not voted on, however, until the Republicans retook control of the Senate this year. Estrada is now being filibustered by Democrats in the Senate.

Jacob Sullum | March 07, 2003

It was more than a decade ago that wineries first tried to inform their customers about the health benefits of moderate drinking.

George Will | March 07, 2003

Wars do not always begin with an abrupt, cymbal-crash rupture of conditions properly characterized as peace. There can be almost seamlessly incremental transitions.

Larry Kudlow | March 07, 2003

The war is everything right now, as Sen. John Warner observed at a recent lunch meeting in Washington. But policy work on the economy is running its course in various congressional committees while the war effort proceeds.

Rich Lowry | March 07, 2003

The human shields, the Western kids who flocked to Iraq hoping to stare up at the business end of B-2 bombers, are coming home.

John McCaslin | March 07, 2003

Now, our final few of the country's "most absurd" anti-terrorism security measures, as submitted by airline pilots, the military, security experts and ordinary citizens.

Charles Krauthammer | March 07, 2003

The blandishments should be immediately withdrawn as soon as Iraq is over and we can marshal enough strength in the Northern Pacific to credibly threaten military action. At that point, bad behavior stops being rewarded.

Chuck Colson | March 07, 2003

U.F.O. land is the home of Raël, the founder of the Raëlians. Raël claims to be Jesus' half brother and the son of a human woman and a space alien. Journalists who meet with Raël must agree in writing to address him as "Your Holiness," but are forbidden to ask why they must address him as "Your Holiness."

William F. Buckley | March 07, 2003

Two reactions flashed out at us from two men of extraordinary experience, Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Ann Coulter | March 06, 2003

Last week's capture of al-Qaida bigwig Khalid Shaikh Mohammed suggests that the Democrats may have been overhasty in claiming the war with Iraq was distracting President Bush from the task of pursuing the "real terrorists."

Thomas Sowell | March 06, 2003

My favorite salesman in my favorite camera store in Palo Alto, California, happened to mention that he lives in the town of Tracy.

Larry Elder | March 06, 2003

When President Bill Clinton used the military in Kosovo, his primary justification added up to one thing -- humanitarian reasons. His supporters cheered him on, despite this illegitimate, though humane, use of our military.

Suzanne Fields | March 06, 2003

Ground Zero is to be turned into Ground Plus. Daniel Libeskind's design has been chosen for the structure to replace the World Trade Center knocked down by the evil men of Sept. 11.

Emmett Tyrrell | March 06, 2003

Fifty years ago this month in Moscow, Joseph Stalin died. He and his Red Army had been our allies (not formally, but informally) in defeating Nazism and fascism.

Alan Reynolds | March 06, 2003

Medicare taxes young workers on the first and last dollar they earn, regardless how poor they are, in order to subsidize medical bills for those over age 65, regardless how rich they are.

Robert Novak | March 06, 2003

The stagnant economy, a dagger aimed at the heart of George W. Bush's second term, will not immediately respond to the president's economic growth program. The economic engine will not be revived until the war against Saddam Hussein is launched and won.

Ross Mackenzie | March 06, 2003

Let's listen in on a conversation - in a coffeehouse somewhere, on the periphery of one of the recently organized demonstrations - between an opponent of taking out Saddam and his weapons of mass destruction, and a proponent of getting it done forthwith.

Michelle Malkin | March 05, 2003

My famous local police chief, Charles "Still waiting for the white van" Moose, seems to have little time to take care of business here at home.

Walter E. Williams | March 05, 2003

We're often confronted by the enigma of decent people professing identical goals but advocating polar opposite policies.

Brent Bozell | March 05, 2003

Our world is full of danger. Think about it: Virtually everyone on Earth is threatened by evil people.

Jonah Goldberg | March 05, 2003

By now, you've probably heard about People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' new PR campaign comparing dead Jews to hamburger meat.

David Limbaugh | March 05, 2003

This latest effort by liberals to find a radio talk dynamo to nullify my brother Rush and other conservative talk show hosts is nothing short of remarkable. What's that about imitation and flattery?

Tony Blankley | March 05, 2003

Drawing on a thousand years of British distrust of the French, in this week's Mr. Johnson innocently poses the question: " ... whether France can be trusted as a nuclear power.

Cal Thomas | March 05, 2003

Ten years ago, the Washington Post carried a front-page story on evangelical Christians. The writer, Michael Weisskopf, famously dismissed this significant demographic as "poor, uneducated and easy to command. "

Ben Shapiro | March 05, 2003

Think of a cow. Or a chicken. Or a pig. You eat those animals, don't you? You enjoy chicken marsala, or a nice juicy steak, or pork rinds. Then, you're a Nazi, too.

Debra J. Saunders | March 05, 2003

Apparently the antiwar left -- as typified by groups like, for whom Farrell was speaking -- doesn't have a problem suggesting that President Bush isn't doing enough about Osama bin Laden, even though the antiwar left opposed U.S. military action that targeted bin Laden, Al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Terry Jeffrey | March 05, 2003

Here is a question for the San Francisco appeals court judges who last week let stand a ruling, signed last summer by two of their colleagues, that it is unconstitutional for students to say "under God" in public schools.

Linda Chavez | March 05, 2003

Don't expect the Democratic presidential contenders to let patriotism interfere with their political aspirations once the war with Iraq begins. Although it's customary to refrain from criticizing the commander in chief in time of war, the Democrats who want to replace President Bush can't afford to honor tradition.

Kathleen Parker | March 05, 2003

In January, the play was stopped from being performed for Cincinnati high schools by outraged Muslims who deemed the play pro-Zionist.

Armstrong Williams | March 05, 2003

Last week a friend of mine on the Senate Judiciary Committee dropped her head in her hands and moaned, "this is going to be another Clarence Thomas."

Joel Mowbray | March 05, 2003

With the capture over the weekend of the man responsible for orchestrating 9/11, anti-war protestors have been robbed of one of their most potent arguments, that ridding the world of Saddam Hussein will distract the U.S. from continuing to dismantle al Qaeda.

John McCaslin | March 05, 2003

Our romantic readers who prefer to dine by wine and candlelight will be relieved to learn that the American Beverage Licensees is denouncing a new study that redefines "excessive" drinking to include couples who share a bottle of wine over dinner.

Brent Bozell | March 04, 2003

The United States is on the brink of war with Iraq. As Saddam Hussein begins to brace for the whirlwind, he's got few weapons left. One of them is very predictable: Hollywood.

Mona Charen | March 04, 2003

The president's first word upon hearing the news was "fantastic." We can only imagine the elation among FBI and CIA officials who stalked Khalid Shaikh Mohammed for the past 18 months.

Cal Thomas | March 04, 2003

There are two ways to look at the decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upholding its ruling last June in which it declared the Pledge of Allegiance clause "One nation, under God " violates the constitutional prohibition against government established religion.

Dennis Prager | March 04, 2003

CBS News constantly referred to Dan Rather's interview with one of the world's cruelest tyrants as a "coup."

Matt Towery | March 04, 2003

A year away from the Democratic presidential primaries, let's go out on a limb and make two predictions. First, former House Minority Leader Richard Gephardt of Missouri will be a surprise frontrunner after the Iowa caucus. Second, newly announced candidate Sen. Bob Graham of Florida will be a lock for the Democratic nomination for vice president.

Diana West | March 04, 2003

Just one more thing about France. Considering all the analysis of the country's motives for trying to thwart a U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, one gathers that France is out to prove its "relevance"

Phyllis Schlafly | March 04, 2003

"Gods and Generals" opened in movie theaters this past weekend, and at last we have a movie that presents truthful history rather than fiction or politically correct revisionism.

Bill Murchison | March 04, 2003

The U.S. House last week voted 241-155 to ban human cloning both for reproduction and medical research. Opponents snapped back that the majority -- which included Democrats as well as Republicans -- was voting to obstruct the march of progress and good works.

Frank Gaffney | March 04, 2003

It is ironic that France is the principal beneficiary of the vote last Saturday in Turkey’s parliament that failed to authorize U.S. use of Turkish bases for an invasion of Iraq -- aside, of course, from Saddam Hussein.

Jack Kemp | March 04, 2003

Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai, for whom I have the greatest respect, is in a real political jam.

George Will | March 04, 2003

Counting from April 18, 1991, the 15th day after passage of U.N. Resolution 687, more than 4,330 days have passed since Iraq put itself in material breach of international obligations.

Bruce Bartlett | March 04, 2003

One might expect President Bush to be attacked by Democrats for appointing a staunchly free market-oriented economist as his chief economic adviser. But it is a bit odd for him to be attacked by Republicans for doing so.

Larry Kudlow | March 04, 2003

The fog of war has enshrouded everyone and everything. But we must soldier ahead. And that means investors, too.

Rich Lowry | March 04, 2003

The only serious Democratic presidential candidate to vote against the Iraq-war resolution in Congress is Bob Graham.

Marvin Olasky | March 04, 2003

Why are Senate Democrats filibustering against Miguel Estrada? Sure, they want courts that will back abortion and gay marriage. But there's more:

Prophecy is difficult, especially with respect to the future, said Mark Twain.

Suzanne Fields | March 03, 2003

The worldwide antiwar movement hasn't accomplished much, but it has made George Bush and not Saddam Hussein the villain in certain European precincts.

Debra J. Saunders | March 03, 2003

There's something about bad ideas and Washington that go together. So expect a smooth ride for the Freedom CAR -- a new Bush initiative that proposes to spend $1.7 billion on the development of a hydrogen-powered car.

Maggie Gallagher | March 03, 2003

In a memorandum, the French laid out their opposition (along with the Germans and Russians) to war with Iraq: "Full and effective disarmament" remains the "imperative objective," but so far "the conditions for using force against Iraq are not fulfilled."

Robert Novak | March 03, 2003

One of the least pleasant duties of a Republican administration's secretary of Labor is appearing before barons of organized labor at their annual meeting in Florida.

Kathleen Parker | March 03, 2003

For evidence look no further than the March 4 trial in which two black women are suing Southwest Airlines for discrimination after a flight attendant uttered the following: "Eenie, meenie, minie, mo; pick a seat, we gotta go."

George Will | March 03, 2003

Call Ray Simon," says Secretary of Education Rod Paige to a visitor, who does. Simon, Arkansas' chief school officer, confirms that in the past five years, the new high school teachers graduated by his state's colleges included 1,193 physical education teachers. And one physics teacher.

John Leo | March 03, 2003

After 17 years of litigation, the Supreme Court ruled last week that anti-abortion protesters can't be punished as racketeers under the loosely worded and maddeningly vague Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).

William F. Buckley | March 03, 2003

The New York Times has published excerpts from a tape recording. Featured: a 39-year-old man ("Curt"), a 64-year-old bishop and a 60-year-old priest.

Joel Mowbray | March 03, 2003

The White House has put forth many justifications for toppling Saddam Hussein—the possession of weapons of mass destruction, the flouting of 17 United Nations Security Council resolutions, ties to al Qaeda—but perhaps no reason is more central to the ultimate victory in the war on terror than one the President outlined in his speech last week:
