Paul Jacob | October 02, 2005

The target's been chosen: term limits. The gun's being waved around, too. And there's a bullet in the Chamber.

George Will | October 02, 2005

Tabor has been spectacularly successful. Per capita spending has increased slower than in almost all other states, and Colorado ranks 50th in state taxes collected per $1,000 of personal income.

Doug Giles | October 01, 2005

As of this Saturday, October 1, 2005, the law abiding citizens of Florida have been “given back” the already God-given, Constitution-given and no-duh-right to defend themselves.

Robert Novak | October 01, 2005

Dreier's appointment might have eased the way for DeLay's eventual return to the leadership after disposition of the indictment against him because Dreier would be unlikely to win the office in a contested vote.

Larry Kudlow | September 30, 2005

During this hurricane season of George W. Bush’s political discontent, the president has been slammed almost uniformly by pundits on the left and the right.

Alan Sears | September 30, 2005

With over 6,000 same-sex couples “wedding” in the Bay State since May 2004, proponents of this change are crying, “See, the sky didn’t fall.  The world hasn’t come to an end.  And everything is just lovely!” But make no mistake...

Horace Cooper | September 30, 2005

The differences between what happened in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and Rita are night and day.

Rich Tucker | September 30, 2005

The real problem here is that nobody -- not the state, not the parents, not the students -- seems serious about education.

David Limbaugh | September 30, 2005

Already reeling from his problems in Iraq, Katrina nearly delivered the knockout blow.

Mona Charen | September 30, 2005

Perhaps you've heard the one about the 700 firefighters from a variety of states who volunteered to do rescue work following Hurricane Katrina?

Oliver North | September 30, 2005

Those who are debating what needs to be done to mitigate the consequences of the next "extreme circumstance" need to answer these questions before the answer becomes: "Send in the Marines."

Jacob Sullum | September 30, 2005

In a trial that began on Monday, Sept. 26, a federal judge in Harrisburg has been called upon to decide whether intelligent design is a legitimate scientific theory.

Charles Krauthammer | September 30, 2005

Its de facto leader is Cindy Sheehan, who catapulted herself into that role by quite brilliantly exploiting the media's hunger for political news during the August recess, and by wrapping herself in the courage of her son Casey, who died in Iraq.

Jennifer Biddison | September 30, 2005

After breathing a sigh of relief over our new Chief Justice’s commitment to the Constitution, conservatives should look around for people and organizations to thank for this victory. 

Kathleen Parker | September 30, 2005

Hurricanes Katrina and Rita packed a wallop - not just with weather that ravaged a region, but also in lessons of hysteria and the power of fear.

John McCaslin | September 29, 2005

A high-ranking U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent, assigned to the Gulf Coast to assist in recovery from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, says he and his fellow agents were forced to remove their uniforms with "ICE" branded on the back (similar to "FBI" and "POLICE") because storm victims were chasing them down in hopes of receiving bags of ice.

Debra J. Saunders | September 29, 2005

A political party is in big trouble when a criminal indictment may be the best thing that could happen to it.

Chuck Colson | September 29, 2005

As in every great tragedy, now that Hurricane Katrina has blown out, grief counselors will blow in—by the bus-full.

Larry Elder | September 29, 2005

Mr. Castellano, thank you for your family's sacrifice -- a sacrifice that ensures our freedom, including that of Cindy Sheehan.

Suzanne Fields | September 29, 2005

Karen Hughes has her work cut out for her. She's the undersecretary of state assigned to persuade foreigners, particularly Muslims, to love us.

Matt Towery | September 29, 2005

The indictment of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) hurts. It may turn out to be a pile of politically motivated rubbish, but it still hurts.

Emmett Tyrrell | September 29, 2005

A lawsuit by the Authors Guild and sundry others against Google provokes some thought in me on writing, publishing, the Internet and this wondrous thing called Google.

Michael Fumento | September 29, 2005

The Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) has just announced it’s giving its highest honor to Los Angeles paralegal Erin Brockovich, best known for her virtual beatification  in the allegedly “based on a true story” film of the same name.

Alan Reynolds | September 29, 2005

It's an ill wind that doesn't blow somebody some good. That apparently applies to hurricanes.

Robert Novak | September 29, 2005

Fear has enveloped Republicans who see themselves handing the banner of fiscal integrity to the Democrats.

Marvin Olasky | September 29, 2005

Here's hoping that our run of major hurricanes is over -- and here's an opportunity to examine which people, institutions and concepts won or lost credibility this month.

Ross Mackenzie | September 29, 2005

A collection of news items and quotations readers may have missed - with comments expressed or implied..

Brent Bozell | September 28, 2005

When cataclysmic events like Hurricane Rita capture the nation's attention, other significant news stories are pushed down, or off, the news agenda, particularly on television.

Cal Thomas | September 28, 2005

It is dangerous in chaotic situations for journalists to accept as truth accounts of distressed 'witnesses' who repeat rumors as if they have actually seen what they describe.

Jonah Goldberg | September 28, 2005

In the last month or so, we've heard a lot of self-congratulation from the press about what a great job they've been doing.

John McCaslin | September 28, 2005

Frederick Ryan Jr. swears he was only thirsty for a pint of Guinness when, accompanied by his wife, Genny, and the couple's three daughters, he ducked into the Ronald Reagan Pub during a visit to Ballyporeen, Ireland.

Ann Coulter | September 28, 2005

For those conservatives confident that Bush won't betray them, let's review Bush's other ideas about what constitutes a good Republican.

Megan Basham | September 28, 2005

It may be flying under the cover of an A-list cast, but Flightplan is just another B-rate thriller.

Michelle Malkin | September 28, 2005

Have you heard about what New York Sen. Charles Schumer's meddling minions tried to do here in my home state of Maryland to embarrass a Republican opponent?

John Stossel | September 28, 2005

If non-politicians are going to decide what projects to fund, why do we need Chuck Schumer? We already have a system in which non-politicians decide what projects to fund. It's called 'the market.'

Walter E. Williams | September 28, 2005

Hurricane Rita provided us with another evacuation lesson as millions sought to leave Houston and Galveston.

Tony Blankley | September 28, 2005

It is true that the Insurrection Act gives the president the power to overrule governors and take military and economic command under certain situations. But overriding an unwilling governor hasn't been done in a half a century.

Terry Jeffrey | September 28, 2005

Barnes called them "small-government conservatives" -- and apparently didn't mean it as a compliment.

Debra J. Saunders | September 28, 2005

Maggie Gallagher | September 28, 2005

After a while, reality intrudes. Sometimes it gets so big, even Yale graduates (yes, like me, Class of '82) can't ignore it.

Kathleen Parker | September 28, 2005

Contemplating the reconstruction of areas decimated by Hurricane Katrina - not to mention ways to save civilization - I find a single word unavoidable: Starbucks.

Tue, Sep 27, 2005

Rich Lowry | September 27, 2005

For the first time in years, conservatives have listened to Arizona Sen. John McCain talk about a high-profile domestic issue and have nodded their heads vigorously.

Bill Murchison | September 27, 2005

Human helplessness and human resilience are two topics with which our media and politicians -- obsessed as always by the sensation of the moment -- have trouble.

Mike Adams | September 27, 2005

Since I have been hit with numerous requests (mostly post-Katrina) from people looking for that first firearm, I am pleased to respond with a column on the topic.

Bruce Bartlett | September 27, 2005

I suppose that they knew that I have become very disturbed by the Republican Party’s fiscal policy and they presumed that I would attack it.  I did not disappoint them.

Rebecca Hagelin | September 27, 2005

Good luck finding anyone ready to face the real choice before America and Europe: Namely, will the West decisively confront the threat posed by radical Islam? Or will it ride its fabled “tolerance” into oblivion?

Dennis Prager | September 27, 2005

If you want to understand the Left, the best place to start is with an understanding of hysteria.

David Limbaugh | September 27, 2005

It is inconceivable to me how a natural disaster could spark a virtual orgy in a political movement, but that seems to be precisely the effect of Hurricane Katrina on liberals.

Feinstein, like many Democrats, has interesting ideas about what Supreme Court justices do, or should do.

Lorie Byrd | September 27, 2005

Phyllis Schlafly | September 26, 2005

The legislation scheduled to be voted on soon in the U.S. Senate will give Native Hawaiians "self-determination" to choose "total independence" or any other form of government.

Jennifer Roback Morse | September 26, 2005

So what did this study actually say? Well, with 56 pages and 29 tables, it said a lot. Everything reported in the two Washington papers was accurate, but each reporter picked out results they found particularly significant.

Michael Barone | September 26, 2005

It's often hard to keep the big picture in focus. Television news tends to center on bombs going off in Iraq and has mostly ignored several million people voting in Afghanistan.

Star Parker | September 26, 2005

Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Mike Adams | September 26, 2005

It may surprise readers to learn that the white person who violated the university’s policy on segregation was none other than UNC-W Chancellor Rosemary DePaolo.

Suzanne Fields | September 26, 2005

Simon Wiesenthal weighed 97 pounds when American soldiers rescued him from the Mauthausen concentration camp in May 1945.

Diana West | September 26, 2005

Let's take a look at this portrait of presidential leadership, as painted by the Associated Press:

John Leo | September 26, 2005

It took the media a while to acknowledge that most of Katrina's victims were black. Apparently, it will take longer to mention that most of the victims were women and children.

Robert Novak | September 26, 2005

Pence and the RSC's heresy was to propose that massive federal outlays resulting from Hurricane Katrina be offset by reduced spending elsewhere.

Paul Jacob | September 25, 2005

James Madison, father of our U.S. Constitution, must be rolling over in his grave. You see, he forgot to put love in it.

Rich Tucker | September 25, 2005

It’s 2008. For the first time since 1952, neither of the major parties has an incumbent (president or vice president) on the ticket. Who will emerge victorious?

George Will | September 25, 2005

It is disappointing that at this moment of keen interest in the Supreme Court and the office of chief justice, scant attention has been paid to the 250th anniversary of the birth of the nation's greatest jurist, Chief Justice John Marshall.
