Rich Tucker | May 28, 2005

Thomas Sowell | May 27, 2005

After all the glowing words surrounding the Senate 'compromise' in which the Republicans folded their hand despite holding all the high cards, it is worth taking a look at who won what and why.

Brent Bozell | May 27, 2005

Some of today's infamous are merely highlighted for making fools of themselves on TV.

Jonah Goldberg | May 27, 2005

I hate writing columns about cutting government because it feels so pointless, like writing about how bears shouldn't be using the nation's forests as toilets.

David Limbaugh | May 27, 2005

Though even some conservatives disagree, no matter how you spin it, this compromise agreement among the 14 self-anointed Senators is a big loser for Republicans and for the country.

Mona Charen | May 27, 2005

The Kansas City Star, editorializing about the president's threat to veto the stem cell bill passed by the House, described human embryos as the 'excess products of fertility procedures.'

Oliver North | May 27, 2005

For three weeks, my FOX News team has been immersed in little more than what's been happening around us. Memorial Day isn't, as they say over here, on our radar screens.

Rebecca Hagelin | May 27, 2005

Crammed upside down at the bottom of a trash bin with cement blocks piled on top of her tiny body, yet another of America's little girls was seen as nothing more than garbage.

Charles Krauthammer | May 27, 2005

On Monday, Republicans were within hours of passing a procedural rule that would have eliminated the Democrats' unprecedented use of the judicial filibuster.

Rich Lowry | May 27, 2005

This bipartisan deal cut by Sen. John McCain is noxious. No, the issue isn?t judges.

Robert Novak | May 27, 2005

The Army's dilemma is maintaining an all-volunteer service when volunteering means going in harm's way in Iraq.

Kathleen Parker | May 27, 2005

Apparently, the outspoken Fallaci, now in her 70s, has offended some disciples of Islam with her book, "The Force of Reason," and, by Allah, they intend to see she pays for it.

Michelle Malkin | May 26, 2005

Here's a rich irony: I'm writing today about a new children's book, but I can't describe the plot in a family newspaper without warning you first that it is entirely inappropriate for children.

Larry Elder | May 26, 2005

Fox, in defending Mexican illegals working in America, said such workers take jobs that 'even blacks' refuse to do.

Suzanne Fields | May 26, 2005

On a five-day trip to the Middle East, she carried personal messages of hope to Jews, Christians and Muslims, and ran into a nest of barely peaceful demonstrators in Jerusalem.

Emmett Tyrrell | May 26, 2005

Now there is calm in the Senate. There is drift. Yet the storm will come anew.

Ross Mackenzie | May 26, 2005

Left-right rhetoric frames the judicial nominations debate - and, lamentably, for good reason. Even with Monday's 14-senator agreement the debate, the power war between liberal and conservative goes on.

John McCaslin | May 26, 2005

We had to laugh at Wednesday's official White House pool report on President Bush's Oval Office meeting with the visiting Indonesian president, whose name, the writer noted, is a mouthful:

Mary Katharine Ham | May 25, 2005

This past weekend I went to a baby shower (Hold your horses, gentlemen. I swear there's something in here for you).

Ann Coulter | May 25, 2005

When Ken Tomlinson, chair of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, suggested that PBS was maybe a smidgen left of center, Moyers began his lengthy public nervous breakdown. Already well-known as an insufferable jerk, it turns out Moyers is also a crazy megalomaniac, too.

Thomas Sowell | May 25, 2005

The Senate Democrats hung tough and the Republicans wimped out. The Republicans had the votes but they didn't have the guts.

John Stossel | May 25, 2005

She put up a huge billboard offering a $25,000 reward. Soon, psychics began calling her with messages from beyond -- beyond the credible, that is.

Walter E. Williams | May 25, 2005

I buy more from my grocer than he buys from me, and I bet it's the same with you and your grocer.

Brent Bozell | May 25, 2005

The radical Left is not enjoying the 21st century, yearning instead for a perpetual rerun of the 1970s, with America whipped by Vietnam, and the planet in thrall to Third World 'liberation' ideologies and theologies.

Jonah Goldberg | May 25, 2005

Here's a rule of thumb nobody's bothered to lay out because it's so obvious: When someone like Byrd says he's lifted himself above politics, watch your wallet.

Tony Blankley | May 25, 2005

Well, it would seem that the United States Senate has been placed into receivership by 14 self-appointed trustees, several of whom are amongst the Senate's most wanton exhibitionists.

Terry Jeffrey | May 25, 2005

The agreement brokered this week by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and six other Republicans to preserve the power of 41 Senate Democrats to veto Republican judicial nominees was a one-sided deal.

Ben Shapiro | May 25, 2005

Here are the big winners and losers in this, the most important political battle in recent memory.

Linda Chavez | May 25, 2005

Many conservatives are unhappy with the judicial confirmation compromise reached on Monday among Senate moderates of both political parties, but I'm not one of them.

Mary Katharine Ham | May 25, 2005

Is it because these folks are all ignorant, unintellectual red-staters? Is it because they are apathetic by nature and can?t muster the will to stay informed of all the important things happening in Washington?

John McCaslin | May 25, 2005

So few reporters were on hand, in fact, that the White House hurried to have White House interns fill the empty seats.

Joel Mowbray | May 25, 2005

When Pentagon analyst Larry Franklin was finally charged with passing classified information on May 3, the headlines, at least in part, should have read, 'Franklin not charged with espionage.'

Kathleen Parker | May 25, 2005

On the eighth day, when God was handing out whining privileges, he came upon Jeannette Walls and said, 'For you, an unlimited lifetime supply.'

Tue, May 24, 2005

Thomas Sowell | May 24, 2005

If the share of the black vote that goes to the Democrats ever falls to 70 percent, it may be virtually impossible for the Democrats to win the White House or Congress, because they have long ago lost the white male vote and their support among other groups is eroding.

Mike Adams | May 24, 2005

It seems my recent application for Director of the Women's Resource Center (WRC) at UNC-Wilmington was rejected just four days after it was submitted.

David Limbaugh | May 24, 2005

In my daily perusal of the news, I caught two items that illustrate, quite clearly, how liberals view the role of the judiciary, thus revealing, in stark terms, how critically important is the battle over the judicial filibuster.

Cal Thomas | May 24, 2005

The so-called "compromise" by 14 Senate 'moderates' over the nomination of judges to the federal bench was a victory for an institution and a defeat for the Constitution.

Dennis Prager | May 24, 2005

As I have noted on occasion, there are three values systems competing for world dominance: Islam, European style secularism/socialism and Judeo-Christian values.

Bill Murchison | May 24, 2005

Everybody knows -- people, polar bears, inanimate objects, Paris Hilton -- that relations between Republicans and Democrats are at some kind of modern low.

Chuck Colson | May 24, 2005

Critiquing the president's performance is fine. Criticizing his faith - as some students and professors did this weekend - is out of bounds.

Bruce Bartlett | May 24, 2005

According to the Wall Street Journal, congressional Republicans are considering an increase in the normal retirement age in order to help finance Social Security reform.

Rich Lowry | May 24, 2005

Howard Dean must be the product of a Karl Rove plot. How else to explain the Democratic National Committee chairman who so often acts as an unpaid agent of the Republican party?

Jack Kemp | May 24, 2005

When it comes to trade policy, however, the congressional pressures on the White House have had the unfortunate result of allowing political considerations to crowd out sound economic policy.

Michael Barone | May 23, 2005

Like the free-trade agreement with Australia, CAFTA seems to be an almost unalloyed win-win.

Star Parker | May 23, 2005

The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times featured stories over the last week about class and mobility in the United States.

Cal Thomas | May 23, 2005

Is there a fixed point - home base - in this debate, or are we to be left to our own devices without any knowledge of where to begin or where the path will lead?

Michael Medved | May 23, 2005

Suzanne Fields | May 23, 2005

Toilets don't kill people, fanatics do.

Debra J. Saunders | May 23, 2005

The dead Darth-turned-Anakin looks happy, too. You can imagine him turning to his old chums, and saying, 'Sorry about Alderaan. Have a nice day.'

Diana West | May 23, 2005

From this vantage point, we can give Newsweek a pass -- but not such violently uncivilized behavior.

Senators should, indeed, judge Secretary Bolton by the record.

Armstrong Williams | May 23, 2005

Throughout Europe, people are standing idly by as Muslim women are being murdered for having the audacity to date, or to not wear their head scarves outside, or to yearn for a life outside of the home.

Herman Cain | May 23, 2005

Sun, May 22, 2005

Caroline Glick | May 22, 2005

Almost every day, a report surfaces of some new act of often violent intolerance committed by Muslim minorities in Europe against their fellow citizens.

Paul Jacob | May 22, 2005

When I think about the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, I can't help but think of Pravda, the official newspaper and mouthpiece of the Communist Party back in the days of the Soviet Union.

George Will | May 22, 2005

Last week's ruling divided the justices into unlikely cohorts, thereby providing a timely reminder that concepts such as 'judicial activism,' 'strict construction' and 'original intent' have limited value in explaining or predicting the court's behavior.
