Ben Shapiro | May 23, 2004

Democrats aren't satisfied with building a stone wall between church and state. They now want a moat between church and politicians.

Paul Jacob | May 23, 2004

Mention initiative, referendum, and recall to political insiders and you'll hear a one-word rebuttal: California! California politics is almost universally portrayed as, well, a little loony.

George Will | May 23, 2004

Didn't Naderite liberals learn their lesson in 2000?

Doug Giles | May 22, 2004

Have you been hearing some of today?s conservative college crowd crying out about how thorny life is in the university classroom?

Robert Novak | May 22, 2004

A poll showing the nomination of Sen. John Edwards for vice president would put his state of North Carolina in play for the presidential election has increased chatter about a Kerry-Edwards ticket among Sen. John Kerry's insiders.

Brent Bozell | May 21, 2004

Summer vacation is creeping up, and that means children will have all kinds of free time on their hands. For many boys, that means almost non-stop video game action.

Jonah Goldberg | May 21, 2004

John Kerry is a flip-flopping, U-turning, yes-and-no kind of guy. No serious person I've met who follows politics disagrees with this, so let's save the long list of flip-flops for another column.

David Limbaugh | May 21, 2004

Where does John Kerry stand on the war in Iraq today? Where did he stand yesterday? The week before? Where will he stand between now and November? What does he really believe about it?

Mona Charen | May 21, 2004

Are children raised by gay parents worse off than other children? As same sex couples line up for marriage licenses in Massachusetts, the question achieves greater urgency.

Neal Boortz | May 21, 2004

If it were not for his fondness for tax cuts, and his pursuit, however flawed, of the ongoing war on terror...

Oliver North | May 21, 2004

Well, it's official. America's fascination with bizarre legal investigations is now affecting our national security.

Jacob Sullum | May 21, 2004

If life gives you cicadas, make cicada pie.

Larry Kudlow | May 21, 2004

In a few public events -- such as the Tim Russert interview on "Meet the Press" -- the president has sometimes appeared halting and defensive. But not so at the White House this past Thursday.

Joel Mowbray | May 21, 2004

To the casual observer, the situation in Iraq is bleak, the Iraqi people don?t really want democracy, and the only worthwhile story is the brutality and intimidation of Iraqi prisoners.

Thu, May 20, 2004

Ann Coulter | May 20, 2004

The editor of the Los Angeles Times telling reporters how to behave ethically is a complete contradiction, like ... oh, I don't know ... giving Yasser Arafat a Nobel Peace Prize or something. You know, just patently silly.

Thomas Sowell | May 20, 2004

Little Angelo finally got justice, though he died too young to even know what justice meant.

Larry Elder | May 20, 2004

After the brutal beheading of Nicholas Berg, his father, Michael, promptly blamed the Bush administration for his son's death.

Suzanne Fields | May 20, 2004

Not every graduating class has the good or bad fortune (depending on the politics of the moment) to draw a president of the United States.

Debra J. Saunders | May 20, 2004

'Dirty bloodthirsty bastards' is how one San Francisco resident described the police in an e-mail to the San Francisco Chronicle.

John McCaslin | May 20, 2004

Republicans are urging passage of President Bush's stalled energy bill as one way to remedy rapidly rising oil prices.

Alan Reynolds | May 20, 2004

If a crisis looms, what kind of crisis is likely, when will it unfold, who faces the greatest risk and what if anything can be done?"

Ross Mackenzie | May 20, 2004

The principal news lately has told of a beheading, Abu Ghraib and the Bush administration striving mightily to prevent Iraq and President Bush's re-election prospects from turning to mush.

Robert Novak | May 20, 2004

One man kept his seat through the 40-minute oration. It was no liberal interloper but conservative stalwart Donald Devine.

Marvin Olasky | May 20, 2004

India has hit the headlines twice within the past week, but the biggest long-range story has remained submerged.

Rich Lowry | May 20, 2004

Did the Bush tax cuts cause the Chinese economy to grow? John Kerry must think they did if he really believes, as he says every day on the campaign trail, that rising gas prices are President Bush's fault.

Wed, May 19, 2004

Thomas Sowell | May 19, 2004

Two questions would destroy at least half the agenda of the political left: 'Compared to what?' and 'At what cost?'

Michelle Malkin | May 19, 2004

Two politicians in Maryland are now in trouble for stating the obvious: People who work in customer service should speak English.

Walter E. Williams | May 19, 2004

The situation is not pretty. Philadelphia schools are typical of poor-quality big-city schools.

Brent Bozell | May 19, 2004

Anchor Shepard Smith didn't -- couldn't -- show the video that had hit the Internet. He handled it gravely, correctly.

Jonah Goldberg | May 19, 2004

I've always heard that the media is the "permanent government" in Washington. Politicians come and go, but the bigwigs are here forever.

Tony Blankley | May 19, 2004

Now, less than three years after America began to face down the greatest threat yet to our national survival, not only has half the country given up the fight, but they have closed their eyes to the danger.

Cal Thomas | May 19, 2004

Cultural tsunamis, like those that begin under oceans, are caused by something deep within.

Ben Shapiro | May 19, 2004

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Moore's film 'reduces decades of American foreign-policy failures to a black-and-white cartoon that lays the blame on one family.'

Terry Jeffrey | May 19, 2004

President Bush himself has made almost a mantra of saying we will stay in Iraq "as long as necessary and not one day more."

Linda Chavez | May 19, 2004

You would have thought that the discovery of an actual weapon of mass destruction in Iraq would be big news, especially since it was aimed at American soldiers.

Maggie Gallagher | May 19, 2004

At the wedding of Julie and Hillary Goodridge, who lent their name to the historic Massachusetts supreme court decision ordering same-sex marriage, guests sang, 'Here come the brides, so gay with pride, isn't it a wonder that they somehow survived.'

Rebecca Hagelin | May 19, 2004

For the first time in America's great history, same-sex marriage is legal within our borders. It's time we ask ourselves: "Was God wrong?" For far too many, this basic question has been missing from the debate over the redefinition of marriage.

Kathleen Parker | May 19, 2004

When I was a kid, we were taught a few rules, among which was never talk about religion or politics in polite company.

Tue, May 18, 2004

Thomas Sowell | May 18, 2004

While politicians were expressing their shock to the media over the mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners, the Iraqi terrorists gave us a bitter lesson in what real shock is all about.

David Limbaugh | May 18, 2004

Americans would do well to remember that the war in Iraq is primarily about the long-term security interests of the United States. Our withdrawal now would be disastrous.

Dennis Prager | May 18, 2004

For those who still doubt that ideology guides most of the world's major news media, the reporting of the Islamic ritual murder of Nick Berg provided textbook examples of an almost universally leftist bias.

Matt Towery | May 18, 2004

Have you wondered why the Democrats are so quiet on the seemingly tempting issue of sky-high gas prices during the current political season?

Ed Feulner | May 18, 2004

The world has turned in the last 25 years. And that?s due in large part to the leadership of a woman who wouldn?t.

Bruce Bartlett | May 18, 2004

India's voters may unwittingly have solved the outsourcing problem here in a way that America's protectionists never could.

Joel Mowbray | May 18, 2004

Reading the ?hot? new New Yorker ?expose??which has the rest of the media in a tizzy, and has many Democrats even hungrier for Rumsfeld?s resignation?can lead one to believe that the Defense Secretary had a hand in the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal.

John McCaslin | May 18, 2004

Just how deep into bureaucracy will the Iraqi prisoner abuse probe reach?

Mon, May 17, 2004

Michael Barone | May 17, 2004

John Kerry's hope of riding to the presidency by denouncing the 'jobless recovery' are fading as the Bureau of Labor Statistics' employers' survey results come in:

Mike Adams | May 17, 2004

The other day, I got a call from a freelance reporter wanting me to comment on a recent controversy I helped to start at UNC-Greensboro (UNCG).

Cal Thomas | May 17, 2004

What was the cause of the loss of unit cohesion and breakdown of discipline at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq?

Suzanne Fields | May 17, 2004

We weep for Nick Berg as we wept for Daniel Pearl, and for all men and women who sacrifice their lives for standing up for freedom amidst the cruelty of war.

Diana West | May 17, 2004

When the White House promised to punish the murderers who sawed off Nicholas Berg's head, a spokesman said the crime 'showed the true nature of the enemies of freedom.'

Phyllis Schlafly | May 17, 2004

The picture of female U.S. Army Pfc. Lynndie R. England holding a leash and collar around the neck of a prone and naked Iraqi male prisoner, like a dog, is a worldwide public relations disaster.

Joel Mowbray | May 17, 2004

As the Abu Gharib prisoner abuse scandal has almost naturally segued into calls for Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld?s resignation, the media has once again focused on the ?news? to the detriment of the actual context needed to fully understand and appreciate the reality of the situation.

Rich Lowry | May 17, 2004

The Brown v. Board of Education decision, celebrating its 50th anniversary this week, was by no means the end of the civil-rights struggle.

Jack Kemp | May 17, 2004

Since enactment of the Bush "supply-side" tax-rate reductions, economic news has been almost singularly positive, despite the fact that we have been fighting a war.

Chuck Colson | May 17, 2004

Beginning today, municipal clerks in Massachusetts are legally authorized to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Find out how we can stop this before it goes nationwide.

Robert Novak | May 17, 2004

Today, on the 50th anniversary of the May 17, 1954, school desegregation decision, the U.S. Civil Rights Commission -- frozen by ideological deadlock -- will debate something important.

Sun, May 16, 2004

Pat Buchanan | May 16, 2004

When the Warren Court handed down its most famous decision, Brown vs. the Board of Education, on May 17, 1954, this writer had a ringside seat at a high school in the inner city of Washington, D.C.

Paul Jacob | May 16, 2004

Wars can be lost on the battlefield, but not completely won there. That's because war, as the Prussian military strategist Karl von Clausewitz wrote, 'is the continuation of politics by other means.'

Larry Kudlow | May 16, 2004

For all the hullabaloo about the widening trade deficit, no one talks about the spectacular performance of U.S. exports. This is a key recovery indicator, and it's booming.

George Will | May 16, 2004

The Supreme Court's decision 50 years ago, although an immense blessing to the nation, also carries a melancholy lesson.

William F. Buckley | May 16, 2004

Several voices, trying to sway the public temper -- if not exactly to overlook the grim events, at least to put them in an anesthetic perspective -- are saying:
