Thomas Sowell | October 29, 2005

The choice of Harriet Miers to be nominated to the Supreme Court, and her subsequent withdrawal, shows that caution is sometimes the most dangerous policy.

Brent Bozell | October 29, 2005

Halloween is the perfect season for those TV producers seemingly addicted to giving us ghoulish plots all year long. But there is innocent ghoulishness, and there is depravity. At the top of that list is Ryan Murphy.

Robert Novak | October 29, 2005

Managers of the failed Harriet Miers nomination for the Supreme Court set the actual day of her demise as Oct. 18, when conservative Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Sam Brownback of Kansas called for the release of her work product as White House counsel to justify her confirmation.

Mike Adams | October 28, 2005

Yesterday, Anna Potter of Feminist Students United (FSU) sent out an email that should make us all want to sign up for the list serve of this UNC-Chapel Hill student organization.

David Limbaugh | October 28, 2005

In reading the bizarre missives from Sen. John Kerry contaminating my inbox, I have to wonder whether he's operating as a foil for Hillary Clinton.

Mona Charen | October 28, 2005

Seeking a stealth candidate for the most important seat (i.e., the swing vote) on the Supreme Court certainly looks like weakness. And it's borrowed trouble.

Oliver North | October 28, 2005

The masters of the mainstream media have been opposed to the war in Iraq from the beginning and have expressed that opposition in numbers.

Pat Buchanan | October 28, 2005

By withdrawing her nomination, Harriet Miers spared herself an agonizing inquisition and probable rejection by the Senate and did George W. Bush the greatest service of her career. She may just have helped him save his presidency.

Ben Shapiro | October 28, 2005

In 1866, when members of the 39th Congress of the United States submitted the Constitution's 14th Amendment to state legislatures for ratification, they would have been stunned to learn that they had just written a provision mandating that homosexual sex be treated on the same moral plane as heterosexual sex.

Jacob Sullum | October 28, 2005

It's so rare for legislators to draw a distinction between their personal policy preferences and their constitutional responsibilities that Paul's stand must seem quaint, if not downright puzzling, to most Americans.

Rich Tucker | October 28, 2005

The city bought one hybrid-electric bus and made plans to buy more.  One minor problem. The bus didn’t work.

Jennifer Biddison | October 28, 2005

When the experts grow concerned, Americans start to take notice. Take the work of the team at Tech Central Station on the avian flu, for example.

Marvin Olasky | October 28, 2005

There's an important new coalition in Washington, and it's designed not to stop the Miers nomination, but to stop malarial mosquitoes.

Kathleen Parker | October 28, 2005

Boo. That about sums up my response to the past several weeks' guessing game regarding the tsunami in a thimble popularly known as Plamegate. Or Rove-a-Rama. Or Miller Time.

Charles Krauthammer | October 28, 2005

If I were in the opposition camp, I would want a deeply patriotic, highly intelligent, distinguished establishment figure. I would want Brent Scowcroft.

Thomas Sowell | October 27, 2005

Most people do not know the rest of the story, however. Why was there racially segregated seating on public transportation in the first place?

Larry Elder | October 27, 2005

The National Basketball Association recently announced a new dress code for the league's 375 ballplayers.

Mike Adams | October 27, 2005

I am writing to ask some questions about an adult entertainment star and "sex educator" named Annie Sprinkle who recently spoke in front of a full crowd of people at your publicly-funded institution of higher learning.

Cal Thomas | October 27, 2005

In one 1993 speech before a women's group in Dallas, Miers invoked what might be called a doctrine of self-determination.

Suzanne Fields | October 27, 2005

Last week, Newsweek's cover story was about Oprah Winfrey and seven other prominent women, and their stories about how they got where they are all sounded like exceptions to the rule.

Emmett Tyrrell | October 27, 2005

I cannot recall such opposition to a conservative presidential initiative ever.

Ross Mackenzie | October 27, 2005

Where are we on energy? In a hole of our own digging.

Alan Reynolds | October 27, 2005

The commission must have taken the president's appeal to leave things alone too literally, since it has taken special care to avoid lowering tax rates.

Michael Fumento | October 27, 2005

It was a tenet of the late great economist Julian Simon that we'll never run out of any commodity. That’s because before we do the increasing scarcity of that resource will drive up the price and force us to adopt alternatives.

Robert Novak | October 27, 2005

The message from officials in this huge, shiny, booming capital is that China's military buildup does not connote desire to kick the Americans out of East Asia.

Ann Coulter | October 26, 2005

The Bush White House has turned into the Nixon White House – complete with Harriet Miers as its Rosemary Woods, with an 18-year gap in her credentials.

Michelle Malkin | October 26, 2005

The anti-war Left couldn't wait for the death of the 2,000th soldier in Iraq. Peace activists have been gearing up for protests, vigils, and other events this week to mark the completely bogus milestone.

John Stossel | October 26, 2005

Years ago, interviewing economist Walter Williams for a show ABC News called "Greed," I was perplexed when Williams said, "a thief is more moral than a congressman; when a thief steals your money, he doesn't demand you thank him."

Walter E. Williams | October 26, 2005

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina's destruction of New Orleans, President Bush gave America's poverty pimps and race hustlers new ammunition.

Brent Bozell | October 26, 2005

The news media insist that what conservatives don't like about their reporting is the unpleasant truths they uncover.

Jonah Goldberg | October 26, 2005

The thinking goes that, in order to do their jobs well, journalists need special exemption from testifying before courts and grand juries - an obligation that holds for everybody else.

Tony Blankley | October 26, 2005

Seldom has a president found himself in more political trouble that he substantially has the power in his own hands to fix than does President Bush currently.

Terry Jeffrey | October 26, 2005

When he signed the Homeland Security funding bill last week, President Bush vowed to track down illegal aliens inside the United States and enforce the law against employers who hire them.

Linda Chavez | October 26, 2005

Few people in history can claim to have truly changed the world, and even fewer by one simple act.

Alan Sears | October 26, 2005

Three momentous events took place in America last month, but chances are you’re only aware of two of them.

Thomas Sowell | October 25, 2005

A reader recently sent me an e-mail about a woman he had met and fallen for. Apparently the attraction was mutual -- until one fateful day the subject of the environment came up.

Mike Adams | October 25, 2005

Recently, a young Georgia Tech student wrote me an angry letter saying I had unfairly criticized some of last year’s Georgia Tech Coming Out Week (CTCOW) activities as “pornographic.”

David Limbaugh | October 25, 2005

Contrary to so-called anti-elitist sentiment out there, it's going to take known heavyweights to clean up that mess. We've got them; why not use them?

Cal Thomas | October 25, 2005

In what could be a critical week for the Bush administration, special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald may indict top White House aide and political guru Karl Rove, along with Vice President Cheney's chief of staff and a chief strategist in the war in Iraq, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

Dennis Prager | October 25, 2005

One of the more appealing aspects about being on the Left is that you do not necessarily have to engage your opponents in debates over the truth or falsehood of their positions. You can simply dismiss your opponent as "anti."

Rebecca Hagelin | October 25, 2005

When I look into the eyes of my children, how can I explain that my generation is squandering their future? No logical explanation exists. I wonder, do other parents realize what’s at stake?

Bill Murchison | October 25, 2005

Out of the air comes the appointment of Ben Bernanke to succeed Alan Greenspan as Grand Keeper of Economic Prosperity, and the market reminds us of how much more presidents do than just get in trouble with partisan rivals and the news media.

John McCaslin | October 25, 2005

Once was the time a politician could pick up a baby and mug for the camera. But these days candidates had better be holding their own child -- and if they don't have any children, they at least ought to be married.

Herman Cain | October 25, 2005

As General MacArthur warned, forces that threaten our national economic security are alive and thriving within our own borders.

Lorie Byrd | October 25, 2005

Whether or not Miers is ultimately confirmed, the way that some have chosen to oppose her and the way some have chosen to react to that opposition, has resulted in hard feelings among conservatives. 

Bruce Bartlett | October 25, 2005

Next week, the President's Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform will issue its report.

George Will | October 25, 2005

Greenspan's tenure has illustrated an axiom to which his successor, Ben Bernanke, should subscribe: Minimalist missions by government produce maximum results.

Chuck Colson | October 24, 2005

Sex trafficking—a form of slavery—still exists in this world and, like it or not, in this country. A TV special is exposing the problem.

Michael Barone | October 24, 2005

The press has been shrieking for Rove's and Libby's scalp. If they're indicted, the administration will be hurt in the short run, but in the long run it will be the press and the people who will suffer.

Star Parker | October 24, 2005

Now that we have the mess to clean up, for some reason we think that turning back to government is the answer.

Mike Adams | October 24, 2005

Wayne Clough, the President of Georgia Institute of Technology, seems to be making the same argument nearly every college administrator makes when I expose First Amendment violations at the college or university he (or she) is supposed to be running.

Suzanne Fields | October 24, 2005

The wall of separation of church and state has not been breached or lowered, but the public accepts as desirable a dialogue between Americans on both sides of the wall.

Diana West | October 24, 2005

Freedom marches on in Iraq, and tolerance expands its reach at home, or so they say. But I would put it this way: Democracy marches on in Iraq, and the Koran expands its reach at home.

Phyllis Schlafly | October 24, 2005

Howard Fineman of Newsweek looked into his crystal ball and proclaimed the coming crackup of the conservative movement. But, to quote Mark Twain, reports of its death are greatly exaggerated.

Robert Novak | October 24, 2005

For the first time, China and Japan are great powers at the same time and eye each other with foreboding -- 127 million Japanese worried about 1.3 billion Chinese.

Jack Kemp | October 24, 2005

Unfortunately, the storms struck just as Congress is debating the future of the secondary mortgage market and considering legislation that could hinder the ability of families in the Gulf States - and communities nationwide - to build wealth through homeownership and access to affordable housing.

Armstrong Williams | October 24, 2005

As a result of the President’s waning approval rating, the elite media and intellectuals would lead us to believe that less people are listening to his message.

Jennifer Roback Morse | October 24, 2005

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has placed his name and prestige at the service of reforming California politics.

John Leo | October 24, 2005

Next week: the ACLU sues to ban deviled eggs from the school cafeteria.

Doug Giles | October 23, 2005

There was no shortage of stupidity in Toledo last week.

Debra J. Saunders | October 23, 2005

Today, Republicans hear the words Ronald Wilson Reagan and they smile.

Paul Jacob | October 23, 2005

A clash in the Senate brought the august body to a rare moment of clarity, where it was obvious for all to see why government grows. It grows because our politicians want it to grow.

George Will | October 23, 2005

Such is the perfect perversity of the nomination of Harriet Miers, it discredits, and even degrades, all who toil at justifying it.
