Brent Bozell | March 07, 2004

For several weeks now, the national media have looked like the servile monkey to Democratic Party chairman Terry McAuliffe's organ grinder.

Paul Jacob | March 07, 2004

The oldest legislature in the nation, the Virginia General Assembly, is a tax and budget train-wreck. It is also Exhibit A in the case against the politicians who have hijacked our system of citizen-controlled government.

George Will | March 07, 2004

The 100 eventful days since the president's Thanksgiving visit to Baghdad confirm just how much events are in the saddle, riding the candidates who promise to control events.

Ross Mackenzie | March 07, 2004

A mythical conversation with John Kerry. The questions are drawn from fact. The responses are logic-based fantasy...

William F. Buckley | March 07, 2004

From all ideological quarters, people are pushing and pulling in the matter of Social Security reform.

Doug Giles | March 06, 2004

There?s a violent internal menace that has plagued our land since the close of the 20th century. You know who I?m talking about ? that radical and now unpredictable enemy ? our kids!

Robert Novak | March 06, 2004

Presidential nominee-apparent John Kerry has no intention of forcing out Terry McAuliffe as Democratic National chairman for the time being but wants him to watch his words more closely.

Larry Kudlow | March 06, 2004

Following the release of the softer-than-expected February jobs report, the major media outlets would almost have us believe that employment is falling back into recession. It most certainly is not.

Brent Bozell | March 05, 2004

The residents of Gypsum, Colo., were in for a surprise the other day. Someone hit the wrong button in the county's communications center, triggering an automatic broadcast over four radio stations warning residents to evacuate immediately on account of the tsunami headed their way.

Jonah Goldberg | March 05, 2004

I don't like the federal budget deficit. And I mean that in almost every sense possible. I don't like it because it's bad for the economy, sure.

David Limbaugh | March 05, 2004

Have you noticed that Democrats don't have a vision, much less a coherent platform this election year? It's because they don't have serious alternative policies to offer the voters.

Mona Charen | March 05, 2004

No one seems to recall another example of a sitting president phoning the likely nominee of the other party to congratulate him as George Bush did after Kerry's victory on Super Tuesday.

Oliver North | March 05, 2004

Two years ago, former President Jimmy Carter traveled to Havana to break bread with the Dean of Dictators, Fidel Castro -- for 45 years the brutal ruler of Cuba's island paradise.

Rich Tucker | March 05, 2004

Oh, thank goodness. I?m so glad you?ve survived to read these words. Almost as glad as I am to have survived to write them. For a while, it seemed the flu might get us all.

Bruce Bartlett | March 05, 2004

Last year, when Republicans rammed a new Medicare drug benefit through Congress, I warned that they were unlikely to get the political boost they were expecting.

Thu, Mar 04, 2004

Ann Coulter | March 04, 2004

In the dozens and dozens of panic-stricken articles the New York Times has run on Mel Gibson's movie, "The Passion of the Christ," the unavoidable conclusion is that liberals haven't the vaguest idea what Christianity is.

Brent Bozell | March 04, 2004

Almost every parent of a teenager wonders how on Earth they're going to be able to monitor what sensationalistic media images or ideas children are engrossed in today.

Larry Elder | March 04, 2004

Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., when asked whether he considered himself a liberal, treated the questioner as if she belonged to the House Committee on Un-American Activities during the McCarthy years.

Mike Adams | March 04, 2004

Earlier this week, I wrote an article criticizing UNC Greensboro (UNCG) for spending public funds on a speech given by a porn star...

Suzanne Fields | March 04, 2004

Beware the man, Greek or not, bearing the gift of Amontillado, the dark amber-brown Spanish sherry that can get a girl into trouble. The man, too. The girl will get her revenge if it takes her 20 years.

Emmett Tyrrell | March 04, 2004

The morning after Super Tuesday expired with a burst of fireworks enhaloing the hunk of granite that is John Kerry's head, Sen. Hillary Clinton -- still the most popular Democrat in the country -- pops up at Washington's Mayflower Hotel to give a major speech on trade and manufacturing.

Larry Kudlow | March 04, 2004

The stock market is churning toward a correction, perhaps in the range of 5 percent to 10 percent. Behind this churn downward is the dollar's adjustment upward.

George Will | March 04, 2004

According to Laurence J. Kotlikoff of Boston University, the present value of the gap between promised outlays and projected revenues is $51 trillion -- more than four times the nation's annual GDP.

Alan Reynolds | March 04, 2004

When Alan Greenspan recently revealed unpleasant truths about Social Security, he was widely misinterpreted as having merely recommended cuts in retirement benefits, as though this was simply his personal preference.

John McCaslin | March 04, 2004

One thing that has become apparent within the Bush White House is that not everybody agrees with everybody all the time.

Robert Novak | March 04, 2004

Less than two hours earlier that day, Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan detonated a political bombshell. To judge from the bland and uninformative briefing, nobody on the president's campaign team heard the explosion.

Marvin Olasky | March 04, 2004

Liberal journalists love to find hypocrisy among conservatives who display religious faith and practice family values more in rhetoric than in reality.

Rich Lowry | March 04, 2004

How high are the stakes in the war on terror? We are working to prevent the detonation of a nuclear device in an American city some day.

Wed, Mar 03, 2004

Thomas Sowell | March 03, 2004

Ralph Nader may have performed a real public service by running for President again, despite the pleas and outcries of his liberal admirers.

Michelle Malkin | March 03, 2004

I watched Gavin Newsom, outlaw-in-chief of San Francisco, on "Larry King Live" last week. With his slicked-back hair and silk tie, the 36-year-old mayor is the perfect model for the Radical Left's Extreme Makeover.

Walter E. Williams | March 03, 2004

Same sex marriage advocates argue for a change in the legal definition of marriage so as to include marriage between male couples and female couples. Here's my question:

Jonah Goldberg | March 03, 2004

Don't worry, this isn't another column about gay marriage. But let me briefly refer to noted constitutional scholar and historian, Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe.

Tony Blankley | March 03, 2004

If, a few years ago, I had been told there was a big Hollywood movie coming out about Jesus Christ directed by a man named Mel, I probably would have assumed that they were talking about a comedy by Mel Brooks.

Pat Buchanan | March 03, 2004

On coming away from a first, full viewing of Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ," among the questions that came is mind was: What in heaven's name was all the howling about?

Debra J. Saunders | March 03, 2004

It's an odd campaign gimmick, but Sen. John F. Kerry, D-Mass., often tells voters that he was "misled" and that's why he voted for an October 2002 resolution authorizing military force against Iraq.

Terry Jeffrey | March 03, 2004

What if a state legislature enacted, and a state Supreme Court upheld, a law forcing family businesses operated by Orthodox Jews to remain open on the Sabbath?

Ben Shapiro | March 03, 2004

Complete sexual freedom. That was the dream promoted by feminists. The dream has cost America dearly. Several reports released last week -- by Advocates for Youth and the Alan Guttmacher Institute -- conclude that half of all young Americans will get a sexually transmitted disease by age 25.

Linda Chavez | March 03, 2004

The culture war came home in a very personal way this week when I innocently gave my granddaughter her first radio.

Rebecca Hagelin | March 03, 2004

So now I know the power of Rush Limbaugh. I don't just know about it ? I mean I have actually felt it.

Maggie Gallagher | March 03, 2004

The latest complaint about President Bush: By endorsing a federal marriage amendment, he is 'writing discrimination into the Constitution.' Rosie O'Donnell called the president's words 'vile' and 'hateful.'

Chuck Colson | March 03, 2004

How do news editors decide on the top story? Too often they fall back on the old rule that "if it bleeds, it leads." Find out what this does to our collective anxiety level.

Kathleen Parker | March 03, 2004

Sometimes if you wait long enough, questions will answer themselves.

William F. Buckley | March 03, 2004

It is being claimed, ever more widely, that neoconservative policies are determined by the advantages they bring, manifest or putative, to the state of Israel.

Tue, Mar 02, 2004

Thomas Sowell | March 02, 2004

The real issue is who should decide such issues -- that is, what kind of country and what kind of government do we have or want to have?

Brent Bozell | March 02, 2004

Do you ever read those oftentimes annoying little tickers that crawl under the TV newscasts?

David Limbaugh | March 02, 2004

Political campaigns ought to be about helping the electorate to determine the candidates' respective positions on the issues, but Democrats, in a number of ways, are determined to obscure rather than clarify, and there has to be a reason for that.

Mona Charen | March 02, 2004

It grieves me to object to Mel Gibson's movie because I know that millions of Christians in this country and around the world will be moved and possibly even transformed by it -- and that is a welcome thing.

Dennis Prager | March 02, 2004

America is engaged in two wars for the survival of its civilization. The war over same-sex marriage and the war against Islamic totalitarianism are actually two fronts in the same war -- a war for the preservation of the unique American creation known as Judeo-Christian civilization.

Matt Towery | March 02, 2004

A recent survey conducted by a company called Research 2000 shows President George W. Bush with a narrow lead in Florida against John Kerry.

Bruce Bartlett | March 02, 2004

What Greenspan did that made liberals so happy is speak the truth about Social Security -- the very definition of a Washington gaffe -- by saying that benefits will have to be cut.

John McCaslin | March 02, 2004

A glimpse of the softer side of Donald H. Rumsfeld unexpectedly pops up on page 131 of "Rumsfeld's War" the new book on the tough-minded defense secretary by Rowan Scarborough, defense and national security reporter for The Washington Times.

Mon, Mar 01, 2004

Mike Adams | March 01, 2004

Like many college student newspapers, much of the writing focused on mundane subjects of little interest to those who have matured beyond their college years. And like many student papers, there was a lot of focus on sex.

Cal Thomas | March 01, 2004

The argument most often heard in favor same-sex "marriage" is that it is the "fair" thing to do.

Suzanne Fields | March 01, 2004

The harshest criticism in the wake of "The Passion of the Christ," Mel Gibson's movie about the last 12 hours of the life of Jesus, is directed not at the movie or even at Mel Gibson, but at the audience of evangelicals and the devout who have embraced the movie as a phenomenon of their faith.

Debra J. Saunders | March 01, 2004

Proposition 56 supporters promise less "partisan gridlock" if voters lower the threshold needed to pass a budget in Sacramento from two-thirds of the state Assembly and Senate to 55 percent.

Diana West | March 01, 2004

What could the proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution defining marriage as the legal union of a man and a woman possibly have in common with the security fence Israel is building to block West Bank terrorists from entering the country and killing civilians?

Joel Mowbray | March 01, 2004

Taking a broader view, ?The Passion? was not just a smart business bet because of the specifics of the film?Gibson, the low cost, the inevitable controversy?but because religious films make money.

John Leo | March 01, 2004

Two brief and minor scenes in Mel Gibson's movie stick in my mind. During the long torment of Jesus, a flashback shows stones dropping slowly to the ground.

Armstrong Williams | March 01, 2004

Since the job of unions is to accumulate leverage and money, they've fought President Bush and Rod Paige on every meaningful education reform they've proposed.

Rich Lowry | March 01, 2004

If there was one moment when recent U.S. Haitian policy went wrong, it might have been in 1993 when Bill Clinton was considering whether or not to restore the exiled former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide by force of American arms.

Jack Kemp | March 01, 2004

I woke up the other morning to the screaming headlines, "Greenspan: Cut Social Security." Now, Alan Greenspan knows more about economics than Jack Kemp, but he was wrong to tell Congress that to make the nation's retirement program "solvent" and avoid raising taxes, Social Security benefits must be cut.

Robert Novak | March 01, 2004

Sen. John Edwards got through last Thursday night's debate in Los Angeles, as he has his entire presidential campaign, without being asked an embarrassing question.

Sun, Feb 29, 2004

Paul Jacob | February 29, 2004

Nader's back, spoiling again. That's the story according to Democrats, at least. But exactly what is Nader spoiling? John Kerry's latest makeover?

William F. Buckley | February 29, 2004

The president said that a constitutional amendment is not to be taken lightly. He is correct, but misses the opportunity to say that a constitutional amendment is also a step towards the redistribution of power.

George Will | February 29, 2004

Imagine a possible butterfly effect from Californians' votes on Tuesday. Reverberations might help President Bush become competitive for the state's 55 electoral votes.
