Paul Jacob | April 18, 2004

When it comes to the real issues in Congress, there is only one. Day after day, year after year, the issue is how to divvy up the body politic as fat slabs of pork.

George Will | April 18, 2004

Passed after the 1967 Six Day War, 242 mandated the withdrawal of Israel 'from territories occupied in the recent conflict.' Not from 'the territories.' Israel insisted on deletion of the 'the' because it implied, as Arab and other powers acknowledged by their vehement opposition to the deletion -- withdrawal from all territories.

Have you ever asked yourself, 'Self ? why do churches today look more like the lingerie department at Wal-Mart, than a battalion of men poised to plunder the powers of darkness?' Why do men avoid going to church, and what can be done about it?

Robert Novak | April 17, 2004

Government records show Gorelick, President Clinton's deputy attorney general, donating at least $32,500 to federal candidates since 1998.

Kathleen Parker | April 17, 2004

It is not surprising in our confessional, therapeutic culture that the most pressing question for the president of the United States is whether he feels he messed up.

Brent Bozell | April 16, 2004

Breast-exposing Janet Jackson tried to rehabilitate her sinking music career the other night by going on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" and satirically smearing her infamous Super Bowl nipple-cover stunt onto undeserving National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice.

Jonah Goldberg | April 16, 2004

I'd held off writing about "Air America," the new liberal radio talk show network, out of a mixture of contempt and prudence. But Frankenfreude compels me to share my views.

David Limbaugh | April 16, 2004

Why is it that the very same people who refused to demand an authentic apology from former President Clinton for actual felonies he committed demand a bogus apology from President Bush for something that was not his fault?

Mona Charen | April 16, 2004

The president was asked at least four times at his press conference whether he wanted to take the opportunity to apologize for the 9-11 attacks. It was the press corps in full baying mode.

Oliver North | April 16, 2004

AR-RAMADI, Iraq -- This week in a primetime White House news conference, President Bush described recent fighting in Iraqi areas of ar-Ramadi and Fallujah as "tough." It is tough, war always is.

Charles Krauthammer | April 16, 2004

The first George Bush once said he thought the Gulf War would cure America of the Vietnam syndrome. He was wrong. There is no cure for the Vietnam syndrome.

Ann Coulter | April 15, 2004

Last week, 9-11 commissioner John Lehman revealed that 'it was the policy (before 9-11) and I believe remains the policy today to fine airlines if they have more than two young Arab males in secondary questioning because that's discriminatory.' Hmmm ... Is 19 more than two?

Thomas Sowell | April 15, 2004

A reader has suggested that elections be held on April 16th -- the day after we pay our income taxes. That is one of the few things that might discourage politicians from being big spenders.

Larry Elder | April 15, 2004

Paul Hornung, the Pro Football Hall of Famer, NFL Green Bay Packers' star and Notre Dame Heisman trophy winner, stood recently before the public relations' "racial insensitivity" pit that dragged down John Rocker, Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder, Al Campanis, Fuzzy Zoeller and Sen. Trent Lott.

Suzanne Fields | April 15, 2004

Fashion, of course, follows the culture and is often drawn on the heroes of the moment.

Debra J. Saunders | April 15, 2004

According to Sen. John F. Kerry's new middle-class misery index, Americans are certifiably miserable after three years under President Bush.

Rich Tucker | April 15, 2004

Let?s shut down the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States -- the September 11 Commission. After all, what?s the point?

Emmett Tyrrell | April 15, 2004

As soon as the press conference ended, I decided that I would ask these know-it-alls if they remembered President Franklin Roosevelt's touching apology to the American people after our Navy and Air Corps were caught utterly unprepared at Pearl Harbor.

Alan Reynolds | April 15, 2004

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) recently proposed requiring U.S. companies to "expense" all employee stock options starting next year.

Chuck Colson | April 15, 2004

As the debate swirls around the War in Iraq, much of it hinges around a fact of American political life: We ignore the lessons of history.

Ross Mackenzie | April 15, 2004

Some know generally about the U.S. military: how its ranks are stretched thin as its members serve on station around the world - seeking to prevent civilians from being mutilated and dragged through the streets, and defending liberty in what Donald Rumsfeld terms a multifaceted, "asymmetric" war.

John McCaslin | April 15, 2004

Sen. Olympia J. Snowe, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, was among a congressional delegation scheduled to visit Iraq this week, but the trip was axed by the Pentagon, which cited a need to maintain critical troops and resources in combat operations.

Larry Kudlow | April 15, 2004

As the 9-11 commission shines its too-often-partisan beam on our intelligence agencies, most Americans will come to the view, if they haven't already, that the FBI completely dropped the ball in the month before the terrorist attacks.

Rich Lowry | April 15, 2004

It turns out that there is no cure for the Vietnam Syndrome. Liberal baby boomers contracted it sometime in the late 1960s or early 1970s and have been infected ever since.

Robert Novak | April 15, 2004

When George W. Bush faced the nation in a rare prime time press conference, he was responding to a crisis of confidence among his Republican supporters.

Marvin Olasky | April 15, 2004

HBO last night gave director Oliver Stone a forum to kiss up to Fidel Castro.

Thomas Sowell | April 14, 2004

Attacks on American and other troops and civilians in Iraq are not based on any illusion that terrorist acts and guerrilla warfare can defeat our military forces there.

Michelle Malkin | April 14, 2004

The Bush-bashers who have relentlessly accused the president and his War on Terror team of acting like jack-booted bigots are now imperiously attacking them for acting like light-footed fumblers.

Walter E. Williams | April 14, 2004

Under the name of diversity and political correctness, billions of taxpayer dollars and donor contributions are used to promote what might be charitably called enlightened racism, uniformity of thought and political proselytizing.

Brent Bozell | April 14, 2004

When Condoleezza Rice raised her right hand to begin a much-anticipated TV show on April 8 -- broadcast live for three hours on ABC, CBS and NBC -- the absurdities were already in full swing.

Jonah Goldberg | April 14, 2004

Yes, "everyone" is to blame for 9/11. 'Everyone' is also to blame for the outrageous, silly and counterproductive nonsense coming out of the 9/11 commission's quest to assign blame.

Tony Blankley | April 14, 2004

Looking at today's Islam, a growing number of Western long-chinned pundits have been suggesting that what Islam needs is reform -- much as Christianity and Judaism have reformed over the past 500 years.

Cal Thomas | April 14, 2004

Can anyone imagine reporters during World War II asking President Franklin Roosevelt if he'd like to apologize for the number of American dead and wounded, or Harry Truman if he'd like to repent for dropping bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which forced Japan to surrender?

Terry Jeffrey | April 14, 2004

Thanks to courageous FBI agents -- who worked undercover here and abroad -- and thanks to aggressive prosecutors in John Ashcroft's Justice Department, and thanks to the Patriot Act, which U.S. law enforcement did not have at its disposal before September 2001, Afridi and Ali never made big news.

Ben Shapiro | April 14, 2004

Casting shouldn't be difficult. Rumor has it that Robert Redford will play Richard Clarke, the crusading terrorism chief. No doubt President George W. Bush will be played by Will Ferrell, fresh off his tour-de-force performance in 'Elf.'

Linda Chavez | April 14, 2004

Jamie Gorelick should step down from the commission at once. If she fails to do so on her own, her fellow commissioners should ask her to step aside.

Rebecca Hagelin | April 14, 2004

It's clearly been a bad couple of weeks in Iraq. The process of birthing ? if you will ? a democracy among a people who never have lived under one is proving to be as messy as one might expect.

Joel Mowbray | April 14, 2004

On Saturday, the New York Times?adhering to the P.T. Barnum school of journalism?screamed on its front page that President Bush was warned 'that supporters of Osama bin Laden planned an attack within the United States with explosives and wanted to hijack airplanes.'

Kathleen Parker | April 14, 2004

Who knew? That's the question bugging Americans as the 9-11 commission tries to figure out what went wrong and how U.S. officials might have prevented the 2001 terrorist attacks on the U.S.

Tue, Apr 13, 2004

Thomas Sowell | April 13, 2004

The so-called "9/11 Commission" is supposedly trying to find out what happened, or failed to happen, that allowed the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001 to succeed.

David Limbaugh | April 13, 2004

If I didn't know better -- and I don't -- I'd assume the liberal establishment was trying to destroy President Bush, from distorting his handling of the terrorist threat prior to 9-11 to trying to convince us the sky is falling in Iraq.

Dennis Prager | April 13, 2004

This is how Bob Kerrey, a member of the 9-11 Commission and former Democratic senator from Nebraska, opened his questioning of Condoleezza Rice before the Commission last week:

Matt Towery | April 13, 2004

While there are intriguing arguments both pro and con for so-called "outsourcing," the real issue in this election season is whether the American people personally know anyone who has lost his or her job to a worker in a foreign land.

Maggie Gallagher | April 13, 2004

Stay with me a minute. This is not a column about a presidential candidate. It's a column about a religion. My religion. And maybe yours, too.

William F. Buckley | April 13, 2004

A commentator recently ran his mind over the gay marriage issue. He is opposed to same-sex marriage but squeamish about a constitutional amendment.

Bruce Bartlett | April 13, 2004

It's that time of year again, when competing interests play battle of the press release on taxes.

John McCaslin | April 13, 2004

The State Department wants to show the Arab world that most Americans aren't what Hollywood makes us out to be. So it's developed a new monthly Arabic-language magazine, titled 'hi,' targeting young Arabs in the 18-35 age range.

Mike Adams | April 12, 2004

The next time I see a World War II veteran sitting alone at a table for two, I hope I remember to thank him for his courage and sacrifice.

Cal Thomas | April 12, 2004

She spoke with authority. That was my first impression of Dr. Condoleezza Rice as she faced the commission investigating how 9/11 happened and what might be done to prevent future attacks on American soil.

Suzanne Fields | April 12, 2004

There's a new religion in the world, and it's growing among young, old, men, women, black, white, red, yellow and pink, and the rituals of the faith are fun, fun, fun.

Diana West | April 12, 2004

Last September, Sen. Edward Kennedy attributed the decision to go to war in Iraq to 'a fraud" that "was made up in Texas.'

Phyllis Schlafly | April 12, 2004

With all the real atrocities going on in uncivilized countries around the world, one would think that any world court looking into violations of human rights would have enough to do without trying to tell the United States how to conduct criminal trials.

John Leo | April 12, 2004

In the United States, the dominance of anti-bias laws and rules limiting free speech and free exercise of religion is clear on campuses, not so clear in the real world.

William F. Buckley | April 12, 2004

President Bush has several times reiterated his pledge that full authority will be given over to the Iraqi Governing Council on June 30. That target date was set in November, at about the high-water mark of our military operation.

Rich Lowry | April 12, 2004

Americans hungry for a mistake-proof party uncompromisingly resolute on national security now have found one -- the pre-9/11 Democrats.

Jack Kemp | April 12, 2004

This time each year, as we all go through the ritual torture of filling out our income-tax forms, we hear a crescendo of complaints from friends, neighbors and co-workers about how unfair, complex, onerous and contradictory the tax code is - and they're right.

Joel Mowbray | April 12, 2004

As President Bush laid out the moral divide so clearly two years ago, there are but two sides in the War on Terror: the terrorists and those fighting against them.

Paul Jacob | April 11, 2004

Americans are a do-it-yourself people. We figure out how things work. We fix things. Well, not me ? but my wife and most people.
