David Limbaugh | April 19, 2003

If I lead this column by announcing there are profound differences -- irreconcilable differences -- between conservatives and liberals, I'll feel as foolish for stating the obvious as the editors of Time should have felt when their cover proclaimed a few years ago that boys and girls are born different. But tell it to Al From.

Robert Novak | April 19, 2003

Senate Republicans are tiring of the battle to confirm contested judicial nominees, indicating that Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's Democratic plan to prevent President Bush from shaping the federal judiciary is succeeding.

Kathleen Parker | April 19, 2003

For those who haven't heard, a chill wind is blowing through our nation. So sayeth actor Tim Robbins, significant other and parenting partner of fellow actor Susan Sarandon, speaking a few days ago at the National Press Club.

Thomas Sowell | April 18, 2003

Perhaps nothing so epitomized what is wrong with the media as Wolf Blitzer of CNN "reporting" on the war in Iraq, talking not about what had happened but about something that had not happened.

Michelle Malkin | April 18, 2003

Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien is vacationing in the Dominican Republic this weekend, where he will tee off with former U.S. President Bill Clinton for the newly inaugurated Soft-on-Terror Masters Tournament.

Brent Bozell | April 18, 2003

Gulf War II will be remembered for many things, not the least of them being another American victory that left the world in awe, just as America's commanders predicted it would.

Jonah Goldberg | April 18, 2003

For months, anti-war intellectuals and journalists have been making the argument that pro-war conservatives are "un-conservative." They call us "radicals" and "revolutionaries."

Mona Charen | April 18, 2003

Tim Robbins, call your office. The "chill wind" he detected in the nation is at it again. This time, HBO has decided to pull "Commandante," Oliver Stone's adulatory "documentary" about Fidel Castro, from its May lineup.

Oliver North | April 18, 2003

While the intensity of this war has diminished considerably from what it was just several days ago, it is not over yet.

Debra J. Saunders | April 18, 2003

The parking lot outside the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff was packed with TV vans, camera equipment and shivering reporters on Tuesday morning.

Rich Tucker | April 18, 2003

Before heading out for what may be the final time, Al-Douri spoke to reporters. When he finished, he walked over to thank Richard Roth, CNN’s long-time United Nations reporter. The men exchanged kisses on the cheek.

Jacob Sullum | April 18, 2003

The gun control movement, which pushes national restrictions on firearms at every opportunity, has discovered the virtues of federalism.

Alan Reynolds | April 18, 2003

Does the stock market hate both war and peace? Nearly everyone had been saying stocks were depressed by war uncertainties that would vanish with victory, bringing a huge victory rally. Why didn't that happen?

Charles Krauthammer | April 18, 2003

Syria does not act out of sentimentality. Its harboring of high officials from Saddam's government is not an act of Baath Party brotherhood. It's a form of realpolitik, a postwar continuation of Syria's prewar opposition to America's aim to democratize Iraq.

Rich Lowry | April 18, 2003

So many Americans are engaged in a boycott of French wine at the moment that some French importers are pressuring President Jacques Chirac to cry Uncle (Sam).

Larry Kudlow | April 18, 2003

Twelve years ago, after the first U.S. victory in the Gulf, President George H.W. Bush was unwilling to invest his new political capital in much needed economic stimulus.

Marvin Olasky | April 18, 2003

"War is cruelty. You cannot refine it." That's what Union Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman told Atlanta officials in 1864. But the U.S. armed forces during the past month routed both Iraq's army and nearly 140 years of military doctrine.

John McCaslin | April 18, 2003

In late spring of 1990, this columnist wrote a small item about a group that was forming to defend then-Vice President Dan Quayle, who was under attack from the left-wing media.

Ann Coulter | April 17, 2003

Despite liberals' calm assurance that Iraq wasn't harboring terrorists, this week Abul Abbas, mastermind of the 1985 Achille Lauro hijacking, was captured in Baghdad.

Cal Thomas | April 17, 2003

As war with Iraq winds down, expect the Democrats' war against President Bush to heat up.

Suzanne Fields | April 17, 2003

Why is this week different from all other weeks? Because this week hundreds of thousands of Jewish and Christian soldiers - -liberators, not conquerors - are celebrating Passover and Easter in the Middle East.

Ben Shapiro | April 17, 2003

There they go again. On Tuesday, the same day the Pentagon declared that major military operations were essentially over in Iraq, UCLA's Academic Senate overwhelmingly passed a resolution to condemn the U.S.-led war on Saddam Hussein's regime.

Rebecca Hagelin | April 17, 2003

There I was, sitting in the chair at the salon having my hair trimmed when, suddenly, the tears came.

George Will | April 17, 2003

Because the Democratic Party has leased itself in perpetuity to the trial lawyers, significant tort reform by legislatures seems unobtainable.

Chuck Colson | April 17, 2003

Before his unexpected death on April 5, David Bloom was a rising star at NBC. But what most viewers did not know was that David was a committed Christian.

Ross Mackenzie | April 17, 2003

Hardly a month into it, the war to liberate Iraq from Saddam Hussein is winding down. The past 10 days have seen....

Robert Novak | April 17, 2003

Coinciding with the Bush administration's tough talk about Syria, a senior Israeli official Monday exposed a smoking gun.

Rich Lowry | April 17, 2003

Democratic Senate Leader Tom Daschle often sounded uncertain about the war in Iraq, but not about North Korea -- the United States had to absolutely, unconditionally, give in to North Korean demands for bilateral talks about the communist nation's nuclear program.

William F. Buckley | April 17, 2003

There is commotion on the matter of U.S. affinity for Israel, and it is not only within the right wing, as would be expected. At left-minded demonstrations in the weeks before we conquered Iraq, banners and graffiti were displayed which could be read as betraying hostility

Michelle Malkin | April 16, 2003

What are you doing to protect your 3-year-old from the radical antiwar agenda?

Walter E. Williams | April 16, 2003

There's considerable unnecessary confusion and debate on public policy issues that would be more intelligently discussed and resolved if we'd say what is actually meant rather than using euphemistic disguises.

Brent Bozell | April 16, 2003

War is hell, but a short, successful war that ends with the natives dancing in the streets presents a particular hell for the "peace" movement.

Jonah Goldberg | April 16, 2003

Now that all those statues of Saddam have been toppled, there's another presidential edifice that needs to be knocked down: the tiresome cliché that George W. Bush is his father's son.

David Limbaugh | April 16, 2003

Anti-Christian forces in our culture are operating with growing boldness in seeking to eradicate Christianity from the public square and from the mouths of public officials.

Tony Blankley | April 16, 2003

If Saddam had been joined by Congressional Democrats on the barricades in Fortress Baghdad, the 3rd Division would be calling for reinforcements to take the city.

Terry Jeffrey | April 16, 2003

The president's name was George Bush. He had just won a stunning victory in the Middle East, and his approval rating was soaring -- although some worried about his handling of the economy.

Debra J. Saunders | April 16, 2003

Last week, antiwar protesters were reduced to picketing KQED -- that's right, San Francisco's left-leaning PBS television and radio station. Protesters accused the station of "deliberately limiting voices of reason, dissent and resistance."

Linda Chavez | April 16, 2003

Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad has been handed an opportunity by the United States' victory in Iraq that will decide his place in history.

Bill Murchison | April 16, 2003

As war leader, George W. Bush has performed -- is performing -- magnificently. It puts one in mind of many things, such as the capacity of the chronically underestimated to run like thoroughbreds when the starting gun goes off.

John McCaslin | April 16, 2003

Barring objections from fair-weather allies such as France, Germany and Russia, Uncle Sam is already ensuring that Iraqi schoolchildren - and their parents and teachers - are prepared for the new school year beginning in September.

Kathleen Parker | April 16, 2003

It was impossible to ignore the jarring juxtaposition of last weekend's top-of-the-fold datelines -Augusta and Baghdad -where very different wars were being waged. Try to guess which one is ridiculous.

Armstrong Williams | April 16, 2003

It would be Saddam Hussein's worst nightmare - little children reading the Bible or the Koran in their homes and adults openly discussing their religious beliefs. That's what may soon come in the land that birthed Judaism and Christianity.

Chuck Colson | April 16, 2003

The judicial activists are on the march again. If you don't have the votes to change the law, just sue.

Mona Charen | April 15, 2003

It was almost a disappointment when Iraqi "Information Minister" Mohammed Saeed Al-Sahaf failed to show up for work last week.

Cal Thomas | April 15, 2003

When the Berlin Wall fell and Eastern Europe escaped from the shackles of communism, I wrote that we must not forget the enablers, apologists and other "fellow travelers" who helped sustain communism's grip on a sizable portion of humanity for much of the 20th century.

Dennis Prager | April 15, 2003

President George W. Bush often speaks about the "goodness" of America and about the "evil" of various world tyrannies. Is this language meaningful -- or is it, as many critics both at home and abroad contend, empty and sanctimonious rhetoric?

Matt Towery | April 15, 2003

Forget the Iraqi war. For George W. Bush to be re-elected next year, the U.S. economy must improve. Unfortunately for the president, he may have to risk a brazen, unconventional strategy to make it happen.

Phyllis Schlafly | April 15, 2003

The National Republican Congressional Committee has mailed a survey to a selected list of grass-roots Republicans seeking opinions on "issues of greatest concern" so that the party can be strengthened "by getting more Americans involved."

Frank Gaffney | April 15, 2003

The Bush Administration is obliquely serving notice on Syria that it could be the next country liberated in the war on terror.

Jack Kemp | April 15, 2003

It's been almost 40 years since Congress enacted President Kennedy's tax cuts and set off an economic boom. Still, only a handful of Democrats - Sens. John Breaux (Louisiana), Zell Miller (Georgia) and Ben Nelson (Nebraska) come to mind - have learned the profound lesson he taught.

Bruce Bartlett | April 15, 2003

Leaders of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund met in Washington over the weekend for their annual spring meeting.

Suzanne Fields | April 14, 2003

Should we teach our children how to be patriots? That's the buzz of the moment propelled by victory in war.

Debra J. Saunders | April 14, 2003

Two weeks into the Iraq war, naysayers complained that the invasion was going too slow. War planning was flawed. There weren't enough troops.

Diana West | April 14, 2003

The most evocative news photo to come out of the liberation of Baghdad may be one of a young Iraqi man, dressed in a denim jacket, holding a homemade poster celebrating the "Hero of the Peace" -- George W. Bush -- and kissing the president's faintly smiling photo.

Rebecca Hagelin | April 14, 2003

Just as America's troops are giving their lives in Iraq to protect such basic human rights as the freedom of religion and free speech, the Maryland Senate made the most un-American move it has made in recent history.

Robert Novak | April 14, 2003

George W. Bush was prevailed on by aides two weeks ago to take time out from the war against Saddam Hussein to see Sen. George Voinovich of Ohio.

Joel Mowbray | April 14, 2003

Iraqis exuberantly jumping up and down, raucously celebrating their newfound freedom. That’s why we fight.

William F. Buckley | April 14, 2003

The horror of U.S. Inc., when an enterprising soldier draped an American flag over the bronze head of Saddam Hussein in Baghdad, is an early warning signal of the efforts being made to hoist only a nonimperialist flag in Iraq.
