Thomas Sowell | July 27, 2003

Have you ever heard a single hard fact to back up all the sweeping claims for the benefits of "diversity"?

Pat Buchanan | July 27, 2003

Neville Chamberlain, the prime minister who agreed to the transfer of the Sudetenland to Germany, is known to history as an appeaser.

Debra J. Saunders | July 27, 2003

Of course Democratic presidential hopeful Dick Gephardt was a hit Tuesday. He was bashing President Bush in San Francisco -- better yet, in front of the city's bar association.

Jacob Sullum | July 27, 2003

Ernie and Pat Bechler, who testified at the recent congressional hearings on ephedra, blame the herbal stimulant for the death of their son, Baltimore Orioles pitcher Steve Bechler, during spring training last February.

John Leo | July 27, 2003

Maybe we should give an award for mangled quotation of the year. Misquotations are becoming a regular feature of journalism and politics, partly out of carelessness but mostly because anything-goes partisanship so deeply afflicts our discourse.

Kathleen Parker | July 27, 2003

Michael Burdick, the hoaxer made infamous for his naked-women-paintball Bambi-hunting "business," is a philosopher. He believes in free speech, free will, a free America and ... free publicity.

William F. Buckley | July 27, 2003

Edward Klein, author and editor, wrote for the current issue of Vanity Fair a story that challenged the faith in the matter of John F. Kennedy Jr. and his storybook wife, dead somewhere off Martha's Vineyard after crashing into the water on his private airplane four years ago.

George Will | July 27, 2003

When in January Donald Rumsfeld, responding to reporters, distinguished between ``old'' and ``new'' Europe, he misspoke.

David Limbaugh | July 26, 2003

Have you read about the university study that purports to show psychological links among Ronald Reagan, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Rush Limbaugh and other "political conservatives"? There's so much here, where should I begin?

Robert Novak | July 26, 2003

Another of President Bush's judicial selections faces trouble in the Senate, but the problem this time comes from moderate Republicans rather than Democrats.

Michelle Malkin | July 25, 2003

Shame on the Secret Service. This week, it investigated renowned editorial cartoonist Michael Ramirez like he was some left-wing homeless crackpot.

Brent Bozell | July 25, 2003

In the same week that Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch returned home to waving flags and ovations of love, Hollywood is sending out very different pictures.

Jonah Goldberg | July 25, 2003

Chewing their way through campaign strategies the way my dog goes through tennis balls, the Democratic front-runners are now borrowing pages from Presidents Kennedy and Reagan in their continuing effort to get ahead by tearing down President Bush.

Mona Charen | July 25, 2003

When it comes to foreign policy, I sleep better at night knowing that Republicans control the White House and the Congress. But on health care, it has lately become difficult to imagine how things could be much worse with the Democrats in charge.

Oliver North | July 25, 2003

It was a classic Special Operations mission. Intelligence sources, including Iraqi nationals, indicated that several "HVTs" -- high value targets -- the U.S. military euphemism for everything from an important site to be attacked to a terrorist chieftain or an enemy leader -- were hiding in a Mosul residence.

Debra J. Saunders | July 25, 2003

The national media swarmed into town Wednesday to see when -- not if -- Secretary of State Kevin Shelley would certify a recall election of Gov. Gray Davis for the ballot.

Rich Tucker | July 25, 2003

This town has been a bitter battleground since, oh, early 1995. And it’s all Newt Gingrich’s fault.

Emmett Tyrrell | July 25, 2003

About the time two of the world's most repulsive bullies were being handed over to Allah with the compliments of the 101st Airborne, another of the Democrats' hapless presidential contenders endeavored to demonstrate his foreign policy perspicacity.

Rich Lowry | July 25, 2003

Saddam Hussein never got it. He didn't realize that personal schmoozing in Washington and spreading lots of money around to former and soon-to-be U.S. government officials were the keys to realizing his geopolitical ambitions. He, in short, never learned the Saudi lesson.

Charles Krauthammer | July 25, 2003

The number of soldiers killed is relatively very small, but every death is painful and every life uniquely valuable. But remember that just yesterday we lost 3,000 lives in one day. And if this region is not transformed, on some future day we will lose 300,000.

Thu, Jul 24, 2003

Ann Coulter | July 24, 2003

Donations to the Odai and Qusai Hussein Memorial Fund can be submitted directly to the Dean campaign.

Thomas Sowell | July 24, 2003

Did these words mislead Congress into authorizing military action against Iraq? No -- because it authorized military action months before that speech was made.

Larry Elder | July 24, 2003

Last week, the Eagle County, Colorado, district attorney charged Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant with felony sexual assault -- rape. The penalty ranges from probation to life imprisonment.

Suzanne Fields | July 24, 2003

My mother at 85 was alert, with good vision and sharp reflexes for her age, but one day she smashed into three parked cars in a supermarket parking lot.

Marvin Olasky | July 24, 2003

Many have proclaimed the death of Marxism, but C.S. Lewis said it best: Witches don't die, they merely come back in a modified form. And therein lies a story.

Larry Kudlow | July 24, 2003

This past spring, Maestro Alan Greenspan issued official Federal Reserve statements that deflationary declines in the prices of goods and services people buy was the nation's top economic danger.

Ross Mackenzie | July 24, 2003

Tiptoeing through the garden of items recently in the news....

Alan Reynolds | July 24, 2003

The government's new estimate that the budget deficit may hit $455 billion this year was quickly greeted with pompous media comments that managed to evade the main point.

George Will | July 24, 2003

This is the summer of conservatives' discontent. Conservatism has been disoriented by events in the last several weeks.

John McCaslin | July 24, 2003

Suffice it to say that presidential hopeful John Kerry (D-Mass.) has made "Iraqgate" the theme of his campaign.

Bruce Bartlett | July 24, 2003

The percentage of all families with a net worth greater than $500,000 has been especially rapid, rising from 10.1 percent of all families in 1989 to 14.8 percent in 2001.

Joel Mowbray | July 24, 2003

As Israel moves to meet the requirements laid out for it under the so-called “roadmap” to peace, it does so alone. Other key players, namely the Palestinian Authority and the United Nations, are up to their old tricks.

Walter E. Williams | July 23, 2003

Whenever someone says that this or that government program is absolutely necessary, I always wonder, "What did people do and how did they survive before the program?"

Brent Bozell | July 23, 2003

In the weeks of uproar over 16 words in President Bush's State of the Union address, one thing becomes very clear: Bush is being punished by the liberal media for strategic boldness and a quick military victory on the ground. Neither of these was a strength of the Clinton presidency.

Jonah Goldberg | July 23, 2003

My wife is an aide and senior speechwriter to Attorney General John Ashcroft. This can be a big drag.

David Limbaugh | July 23, 2003

Since national Democrats have literally no agenda on which to base their upcoming presidential and congressional campaigns, they continue to carp at President Bush.

Tony Blankley | July 23, 2003

It is not yet thunder on the right, but President Bush should begin to keep a weather watch for a potentially unstable storm front forming on his right flank.

Cal Thomas | July 23, 2003

Uday and Qusay Hussein, the ace of hearts and ace of clubs respectively, in the popular deck of most-wanted-in-Iraq cards, have met a fate similar to the thousands they were personally responsible for killing.

Debra J. Saunders | July 23, 2003

Yes, President Bush and his team have made mistakes.

Terry Jeffrey | July 23, 2003

In their zeal to retroactively rebut the argument for the Iraq war, critics of President Bush have tried to discredit a British intelligence report -- cited by the president in his State of the Union address -- that concluded Iraq sought to buy uranium in Africa.

Ben Shapiro | July 23, 2003

"I wouldn't know him if I saw him," says Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) of Boston radio talk-show host Chuck Morse. But Morse definitely recognizes the ultra-leftist Frank -- Frank is in Morse's political crosshairs.

Linda Chavez | July 23, 2003

Sen. Hatch has the right idea. Treat D.C. residents like responsible grownups -- and citizens entitled to Second Amendment protection.

Rebecca Hagelin | July 23, 2003

Researcher Donavan Wilson has an interesting theory about why so many people here in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere, remain so implacably opposed to school vouchers.

Kathleen Parker | July 23, 2003

Warning: Living is addictive and causes serious diseases, including lung cancer, heart disease, kidney stones and menopause. The only proven way to reduce the health risks of living is to quit.

Jack Kemp | July 23, 2003

On July 22, Dole celebrates his 80th birthday at the dedication ceremony of the Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics on the University of Kansas campus.

John McCaslin | July 23, 2003

Susan Ford, who spent her formative years living in the White House as daughter of President Gerald R. Ford and first lady Betty Ford (she never got the attention Chelsea Clinton did, but today's entertainment "media" wasn't around yet), has just written her second mystery novel.

Armstrong Williams | July 23, 2003

Latinos are segregating themselves in work and home, cutting off opportunities and generating feelings of inferiority as to their status in the community.

Chuck Colson | July 23, 2003

The first question is, "Would we have invaded Iraq were it not for September 11?" Of course not.

Tue, Jul 22, 2003

Mona Charen | July 22, 2003

Each day brings news of another American killed in Iraq. Additionally, we learn that the electricity is not yet working properly, the Shiites want an Iranian-style theocracy, and U.S. forces are weary and demoralized.

Cal Thomas | July 22, 2003

Tony Blair's address to Congress last Thursday (July 17) was the first by a British prime minister since Margaret Thatcher in 1985, and only the fourth such address in our history. Maybe they should drop in more often to remind us of what many appear to have forgotten.

Dennis Prager | July 22, 2003

Democrats may have applauded British Prime Minister Tony Blair's speech to the joint session of Congress. But in their hearts, they and the entire left must have loathed his speech.

Debra J. Saunders | July 22, 2003

Pontificating in his Capitol office Tuesday morning, California Assembly Republican Leader Dave Cox succinctly assessed the budget situation. "Speaking for the Republican side of the aisle, we believe that the government spends more than it takes in. Our friends on the other side of the aisle believe that we have a revenue problem."

Matt Towery | July 22, 2003

If ever there were an example of how quickly political fortunes can change, it's that of beleaguered California Gov. Gray Davis.

Phyllis Schlafly | July 22, 2003

The Bush administration has reaffirmed the Title IX outrages of President Clinton-era feminists, which impose a gender quota-like system on college sports.

Maggie Gallagher | July 22, 2003

Of all the hard jobs around, one of the hardest is being a good teacher. (I should know, I am married to one.) So what makes a teacher good?

Rich Lowry | July 22, 2003

What is it about angry feminists that so scares the Bush administration? That makes it adopt a position of supine surrender, pleading, "Please, please, don't hurt us"?

William F. Buckley | July 22, 2003

The Liberia squeeze serves political purposes for those who labor to accumulate faults in President Bush's leadership. But some of these are conflicting.

Bruce Bartlett | July 22, 2003

For conservatives, Sen. Edward Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat, is like a canary. When he starts supporting their initiatives, they should get out.

Armstrong Williams | July 22, 2003

Feminist theory states that we are all prisoners of our own biases and value system. Supreme Court justices are no different.

Mon, Jul 21, 2003

Suzanne Fields | July 21, 2003

The first time George W. Bush got a good look at Israel it was from the air. The year was 1998. Ariel Sharon, who was foreign minister at the time, wanted the governor of Texas to see the literal dimensions of Israel's problem.

Diana West | July 21, 2003

So awfully nice to know, as the media and certain Democratic presidential candidates would have us believe, that Saddam Hussein never, ever tried to buy uranium in Africa.

Rich Tucker | July 21, 2003

It’s not the end of the world, but it might be a sign of some sort: McDonald’s is serving healthier food.

Joel Mowbray | July 21, 2003

In the past week, a new leadership council was named in Iraq, and its 25 members have already moved quickly, abolishing all holidays honoring Saddam Hussein and laying the groundwork for a war crimes tribunal.

Robert Novak | July 21, 2003

Sen. Lindsey Graham, the aggressive freshman Republican from South Carolina, had waited long enough and last week acted on his own, without a green light from a displeased White House.

John Leo | July 21, 2003

The media's handling of the uranium-from-Africa story was too much for Bob Somerby, one of the better-known Internet commentators of the left.

William F. Buckley | July 21, 2003

Along comes Peter Jennings' reporter, with the camera and the microphone. 'Well, soldier, what do you think about staying on in Iraq?'

Brent Bozell | July 20, 2003

Viacom recently announced that its plan to create a gay and lesbian culture channel, co-managed by the gay-friendly MTV and Showtime networks, has been shelved. Here's one good reason: NBC's Bravo network is rapidly becoming the go-to gay channel.
