Thomas Sowell | June 12, 2005

Sometimes it seems as if liberals have a genius for producing an unending stream of ideas that are counterproductive for the poor, whom they claim to be helping.

Paul Jacob | June 12, 2005

Upon which side will conservatives and Republicans ultimately weigh in? Unlimited federal regulatory power, or state prerogatives and a federal government of enumerated (and thus limited) power?

George Will | June 12, 2005

The New York Times gets it wrong again

Sat, Jun 11, 2005

Caroline Glick | June 11, 2005

This child confiscation proposal, which was defended on Wednesday by Deputy Attorney-General Shai Nitzan, is more than simply controversial. It is totalitarian.

Doug Giles | June 11, 2005

This kind of policing creates within the church the proper fear of God. It protects the body of Christ from sexual predators and other miscreants.

Rich Tucker | June 11, 2005

Students of history, unite. If you?re interested in understanding what might have happened in Florida in 2000, you need only look at Washington today.

Robert Novak | June 11, 2005

Republican House members returning from the Memorial Day recess last week told the White House that their constituents are most concerned about two issues: fiscal responsibility and immigration.

Kathleen Parker | June 11, 2005

Howard Dean, God's gift to the Republican Party, has a point.

Fri, Jun 10, 2005

David Limbaugh | June 10, 2005

It's rather amusing, frankly, to see certain Democrats trying to distance themselves from Howard Dean's latest round of vitriol against the Republican Party, when you consider the systematic slandering most of them have heaped upon President Bush for more than four years.

Mona Charen | June 10, 2005

Let's say, just for the sake of argument, that there are some intelligent people out there who have never read anything by Thomas Sowell.

Oliver North | June 10, 2005

President Bush, apparently smarting under the lash, now says such a move is 'under consideration.' If the White House goal is to make the pain go away, the Bush administration ought to think again.

Rebecca Hagelin | June 10, 2005

Should we fear a man who prays?

Charles Krauthammer | June 10, 2005

In our current corrupted debates about the judges, you hear only about results.

Joel Mowbray | June 10, 2005

Any seasoned Washington veteran will tell you that a successful political movement frequently earns its victory thanks to the assemblance of strange bedfellows and partnerships.

Rich Lowry | June 10, 2005

Hillary Clinton has met the enemy, and it is foreign investment. She unleashed a barnburner of a speech at a New York fundraising event the other day and reserved special salvos for China.

Lorie Byrd | June 10, 2005

No discussion of women bloggers would be complete without some gross generalizations and politically incorrect observations -- both of which I plan to include here.

Thu, Jun 09, 2005

Thomas Sowell | June 09, 2005

Someone once defined a social problem as a situation in which the real world differs from the theories of intellectuals.

Larry Elder | June 09, 2005

Dean considers Republicans a morally inferior species.

Suzanne Fields | June 09, 2005

You don't need a fortune cookie to learn that China isn't playing straight with the rest of the world.

Emmett Tyrrell | June 09, 2005

On the 9/11 Commission's findings and the consequent legislation, Posner's most optimistic judgment is that the legislation is hazy.

Ross Mackenzie | June 09, 2005

The nuclear option, Social Security, John Bolton; Paris Hilton selling hamburgers or something; 'Deep Throat' starring - masquerading? - as Mark W. Felt. Those topics are consuming the news columns. But what about . . . Iraq?

Michael Fumento | June 09, 2005

I was fed up with the pompous pontificating pundits who can go to Iraq anytime but prefer the comfort and safety of home.

Marvin Olasky | June 09, 2005

David Horowitz is a 66-year-old polemicist of the first rank. Once a scion of the left, he's now its scourge.

Alan Reynolds | June 09, 2005

What matters to the overall economy, however, is the production and sales of U.S. manufactured vehicles and parts, regardless of the apparent nationality of the brand name on the trunk.

John McCaslin | June 09, 2005

How many Americans were actually paying attention when the Senate debated the filibuster around the clock?

Robert Novak | June 09, 2005

Here on the left coast, I found surprising and substantial Democratic opposition to going with the former first lady.

Wed, Jun 08, 2005

Ann Coulter | June 08, 2005

My only regret is that Mark Felt did not rat out Nixon because he was ticked off about rapprochement with China or detente with the Soviets.

Michelle Malkin | June 08, 2005

Most Americans have not been paying attention to the bureaucratic wrangling and political jockeying that has plagued the construction of the World Trade Center Memorial at Ground Zero in lower Manhattan.

John Stossel | June 08, 2005

Last week, I wrote about a federal agency that most people think is indispensable.

Walter E. Williams | June 08, 2005

If you listened to the rhetoric of black politicians and civil rights leaders, dating back to the Reagan years, you would have been convinced that surely by now black Americans would be back on the plantation.

Brent Bozell | June 08, 2005

If Howard Dean thought it would be a great idea to heighten his profile by becoming chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), he was making a big mistake.

Jonah Goldberg | June 08, 2005

Franklin Delano Roosevelt has been having a good year. Inspired by George W. Bush's - alas, sputtering - Social Security reform proposals, liberals have sought to elevate FDR to a rank just a few hairs shy of divinity.

Tony Blankley | June 08, 2005

The English language is blessed with a vast vocabulary that can combine to describe almost any human thought.

Cal Thomas | June 08, 2005

Apparently believing more than 200 years ago that an idle mind can be the devil's playground, Wordsworth and his classmates spent 11 hours a day in school, five days a week, and half a day on Saturday.

Ben Shapiro | June 08, 2005

Hillary Clinton is looming on the political horizon. She got her wish during the 2004 election cycle: John Kerry went down in flames.

Terry Jeffrey | June 08, 2005

Is the private security guard watching over your home or office an illegal alien? If so, is the government doing enough to fix the problem?

Linda Chavez | June 08, 2005

Since January 2002, when the United States began detaining at Guantanamo Bay enemy combatants captured in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other fronts in the war on terror, critics have complained of human rights abuses.

George Will | June 08, 2005

In Monday's decision, which of the justices were liberal, which were conservative? Which exemplified judicial activism, which exemplified restraint? Such judgments are not as easy as many suppose.

Kathleen Parker | June 08, 2005

I've got that all-over tingly feeling not felt since Martha Stewart was put away and America's mean streets made safe again.

Tue, Jun 07, 2005

Thomas Sowell | June 07, 2005

The new trinity among liberal intellectuals is race, class and gender. Defining any of these terms is not easy, but it is also not difficult for liberals, because they seldom bother to define them at all.

Mike Adams | June 07, 2005

A couple of days ago, bird watcher and forest conservation advocate, Rita Dean of Greenville, SC, wrote a letter complaining about me to the chancellor of my university.

David Limbaugh | June 07, 2005

If the Left could bring itself to take a hiatus from its hyperbole in redefining 'torture' so as conveniently to encompass the detention practices of the U.S. military in Guantanamo and elsewhere, perhaps it could rediscover the true meaning of torture by perusing the pages of Solzhenitsyn's gripping account.

Dennis Prager | June 07, 2005

Sometime in the 1970s, I sent a donation to Amnesty International. As soon as I heard that a group had been formed to combat torture, I knew I had to support it.

Bill Murchison | June 07, 2005

The self-outing of W. Mark Felt, who confirmed the expectations of many by revealing himself as a main, early source for Bob Woodward's Watergate stories, came just in time for a country basically out of news.

Bruce Bartlett | June 07, 2005

I don't believe that this heavy coverage of an issue that is not remotely time-sensitive is coincidental.

John McCaslin | June 07, 2005

It's time for our annual look at those prominent Washington journalists who arguably are crossing the ethics line by lending their names in support of the Women's Campaign Fund (WCF), which raises money to elect 'pro-choice' women to Capitol Hill.

William F. Buckley | June 07, 2005

The Supreme Court looked the California situation in the face and said: If Congress doesn't like the law, let Congress change it, but don't look to the Supreme Court to improvise on the drug laws.

Rich Lowry | June 07, 2005

Back during the Reagan years, few things so exercised self-styled idealists of the left as the fate of Central America.

Jack Kemp | June 07, 2005

Columnists and reporters at The New York Times and Washington Post, among others, are dismayed that President Bush's appointment to head the Securities and Exchange Commission, Rep. Christopher Cox, R-Calif., actually believes in economic growth and free enterprise.

Larry Kudlow | June 07, 2005

Should we go out and shoot these 145,000 for their success?

Mon, Jun 06, 2005

Thomas Sowell | June 06, 2005

How will people a century from now look back on our era? Fortunately, most of us will be long gone by then, so we will be spared the embarrassment of seeing ourselves judged.

Michael Barone | June 06, 2005

For much of the 20th century, Americans sought security in the form of guarantees from large organizations.

Star Parker | June 06, 2005

If we gave ratings to books like we give to films, I would urge that Michael Eric Dyson's new book, 'Is Bill Cosby Right? Or Has the Black Middle Class Lost Its Mind?' be given triple X.

Cal Thomas | June 06, 2005

America's understandable preoccupation with terrorism and Iraq may have obscured the gathering threat of China as a formidable adversary.

Suzanne Fields | June 06, 2005

If Judaism and Christianity were moribund like the Greek religions, their stories would no doubt be in the curriculum.

Diana West | June 06, 2005

Last month, a federal judge found the Montgomery County School Board's sex-education pilot plan in Maryland so flagrantly in violation of the First Amendment that he had to hand down a restraining order.

Phyllis Schlafly | June 06, 2005

A federal judge in Montgomery County, Md., has issued a temporary restraining order to stop the teaching of a sex-education course because it violates the First Amendment.

Frank Gaffney | June 06, 2005

If you truly wish not only to be seen as, but to be, centrist presidential timber, you could do worse than lead Democrats in rejecting the specious arguments your liberal colleagues are making to justify filibustering Mr. Bolton.

Herman Cain | June 06, 2005

Congressional Republicans have not performed like a team since the victory celebrations of November 2004, when they won the majority in both Houses of Congress.

Chuck Colson | June 06, 2005

The stunning disclosure that ?Deep Throat? was the number-two man in the FBI has revived the Watergate-era hysteria. Learn the real lesson of this episode.

Armstrong Williams | June 06, 2005

That Felt went to the press, rather than the legal authorities about Nixon?s misdeeds, suggests that he was out to publicly destroy Nixon.

John Leo | June 06, 2005

As distrust of the press grows, news articles are relentlessly scrutinized for bias, but almost no one is focusing on stories that are simply ignored.

Jack Kemp | June 06, 2005

Former Clinton Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, writing in the New York Times recently, makes the case for fiscal austerity when he insists taxes must be raised or deficits will cause the economy to crumble.

Sun, Jun 05, 2005

Mike Adams | June 05, 2005

I love to fly. It's a time when I can sit back and prepare for a speech, think deep thoughts, and fine-tune my sarcasm.

Debra J. Saunders | June 05, 2005

Terrorists in Iraq don't take prisoners. They fight to kill.

Paul Jacob | June 05, 2005

Voters animated by moral and religious values made a difference in the last election. So, it's not surprising to find Democrats looking to make inroads with these voters.

George Will | June 05, 2005

Today Love Field is again in the news, this time illustrating the farcical consequences of the government's ten-thumbed attempt to manage an industry.
