Robert Novak | November 19, 2005

The absence by Chief of Staff Andrew Card from President Bush's Latin America and Asia trips has increased speculation about a possible reconstruction of the White House staff.

Ross Mackenzie | November 18, 2005

It's all nuts - this seeming congressional determination to turn not only on President Bush, but on the American troops fighting for freedom and democracy on the Iraqi front of the terror war.

Brent Bozell | November 18, 2005

If I were to tell you that sex on TV is incessant, you'd tell me you already know that. To which I'd tell you that you really, really don't have a grasp of just how much sex is steaming up the tube.

Jonah Goldberg | November 18, 2005

Stop me if you've heard this already. But there are people out there - honest, decent, sincere people and deranged moonbats, too - who think that George W. Bush lied about the threat posed by Saddam Hussein.

Kathleen Parker | November 18, 2005

You have to wonder - about a second or two - what Senate Republicans would be saying if polls showed that most Americans overwhelmingly support the war in Iraq.

John McCaslin | November 18, 2005

Congress sent a strong message to the United Nations on Wednesday that day-to-day operations of the Internet should be maintained in the United States.

David Limbaugh | November 18, 2005

It is incomprehensible that Republicans are not jumping all over politicians who are calling for a telegraphed timetable for American troop withdrawal from Iraq.

Mona Charen | November 18, 2005

True to their heritage in foreign policy, 40 out of 45 Democratic senators voted last week to demand a timetable for withdrawal of American forces from Iraq.

Oliver North | November 18, 2005

Since October of 2001, our FOX News "War Stories" unit has been documenting the remarkable young Americans fighting the Global War on Terror.

Rich Tucker | November 18, 2005

It’s generally considered good form to actually read a book before one reviews it. But in some cases we can make an exception. If, for example, the author proves foolish or unreliable.

Joel Mowbray | November 18, 2005

While President Bush could be making a lasting—and to conservatives, positive—impression on the Supreme Court he has already started reframing the biggest issue of the day, the war on terror, by calling it what it is: a war on radical Islam.

Larry Kudlow | November 18, 2005

The boat-building business is booming, with big backlogs for boats in the $80,000 to $300,000 price range. Why is this important?

Charles Krauthammer | November 18, 2005

Because every few years this country, in its infinite tolerance, insists on hearing yet another appeal of the Scopes monkey trial, I feel obliged to point out what would that the two greatest scientists in the history of our species were Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein, and they were both religious.

Megan Basham | November 18, 2005

The recording industry capitalized on Cash by portraying him as a man of contradiction. In fact, most fans see him as man conflicted between darkness and light. Walk the Line, however, depicts a man of alarming, unnerving consistency both in his music and in his personal life.

Megan Basham | November 18, 2005

There’s a new Harry Potter in town, and he’s more compelling (and perhaps controversial) than any of his earlier big-screen incarnations. No longer an awkward boy, Harry is in the process of becoming an awkward adolescent, and those youngsters who’ve grown up right along with him will find much to connect with beyond spells and sorcery.

Suzanne Fields | November 17, 2005

Lies are particularly lethal in politics. They create a cauldron of double toil and trouble, nearly always in unpredictable ways.

Robert Novak | November 17, 2005

The troubled Bush administration won a rare victory this week. The Senate voted to close federal courts to Salim Gherebi, an enemy combatant imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay.

Michael Fumento | November 17, 2005

We’re constantly told “we’re overdue” for a biggie. Google “avian flu,” “pandemic,” and “overdue,” and you’ll get over 40,000 hits.

Ann Coulter | November 17, 2005

To hear these liberals carry on, "McCarthyism" was the worst thing that ever happened in the history of the universe. No one has ever been so persecuted or so heroic as Hollywood actors in the '50s.

Rick Santorum | November 17, 2005

Now is the time for midcourse corrections to ensure the success of the conservative movement, as well as the American experiment. With that mission in mind, I would like to make a few suggestions of my own.

Larry Elder | November 17, 2005

So much for the Republican "outreach" to black voters, with only 2 percent of blacks "approving" of the president's performance.   If only blacks knew of the true history of the Democratic Party.

Cal Thomas | November 17, 2005

One of the reasons I prefer to be known as a conservative and not a Republican is that Republicans too often compromise their ideals, hoping the Left will like them. It never works.

Debra J. Saunders | November 17, 2005

There is a myth in the American media. It goes like this: The good scientists agree that global warming is human-induced and would be addressed if America ratified the Kyoto global warming pact, while bad, heretical scientists question climate models that predict Armageddon because they are venal and corrupted by oil money.

Matt Towery | November 17, 2005

This is getting so common that it's hardly news anymore. But the announcement about GM hit me like a sledgehammer.

Emmett Tyrrell | November 17, 2005

Zounds, the liberals have found another of their "smoking guns."

Marvin Olasky | November 17, 2005

We're celebrating next week what sometimes becomes a frenzy of eating, so it's time for a meditation on food that begins, as does much of life, with a memory of bats and balls.

George Will | November 17, 2005

The storm-tossed and rudderless Republican Party should particularly ponder the vote last week in Dover, Pa., where all eight members of the school board seeking re-election were defeated.

Alan Reynolds | November 17, 2005

What if Medicare threw a really lavish party and nobody showed up?

Megan Basham | November 17, 2005

That’s right, for some inexplicable reason, the same trailer that touts Derailed's surprise ending also reveals it. I’m no ad exec, but that sure doesn’t seem like the best way to sell your product.

Cam Edwards | November 16, 2005

It was just after midnight last Wednesday when Susan Buxton realized all was not well in her Arlington, Texas home. 

Thomas Sowell | November 16, 2005

A newspaper headline -- "Lawmakers Struggle to Define Gasoline Price 'Gouging'" -- shows how phony the current Congressional jihad against the oil companies is.

Michelle Malkin | November 16, 2005

While the Washington muckety-mucks pay lip service to reforming the nation's broken detention and deportation system, catch-and-release of immigration lawbreakers remains the order of the day -- not only at the border, but all across the country's interior.

John Stossel | November 16, 2005

Wal-Mart's critics act as if economic competition were a "zero-sum game" -- if one person gets richer, someone else must be getting poorer. If Wal-Mart's owners profit, we lose.

Walter E. Williams | November 16, 2005

Alan Greenspan's replacement comes at a time of heightened fears of inflation resulting from the recent spike in oil prices.

Brent Bozell | November 16, 2005

There are times when you watch the TV news that you wonder if the 2004 election is over yet.

Jonah Goldberg | November 16, 2005

In Washington, soft-spokenness is often confused for intelligence and subtlety. We're so accustomed to shouting that when someone whispers we assume there must be something more thoughtful in the offing.

Tony Blankley | November 16, 2005

Little good comes when Congress grabs control of American foreign policy and war-fighting strategies from the hands of a scandal-weakened White House.

Terry Jeffrey | November 16, 2005

Had she -- to use the formulation Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada is now using to attack President Bush -- "manufactured and manipulated intelligence"? Did Hillary lie America into war?

Ben Shapiro | November 16, 2005

Since Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's retirement from the Supreme Court in July, members of the Democratic left have been itching to pummel a Republican nominee on abortion.

Linda Chavez | November 16, 2005

Those on Capitol Hill and elsewhere who have been complaining of U.S. policy on the detention of enemy combatants got a wake-up call this week.

Jacob Sullum | November 16, 2005

If you've gotten used to smoke-free bars, here's a new concept to wrap your mind around: smoke-free cigar lounges.

Megan Basham | November 16, 2005

Before their deaths in 2003, Johnny and June Cash helped frame the script that was to become the film about their lives. But talking to the actors and director leaves the distinct impression that the Cashes shaped Walk the Line not so much by what they said or recalled, but by who they were—anomalies of authenticity in an industry of frauds.

Thomas Sowell | November 15, 2005

Some are blaming both the unemployment and the ghettoization on discrimination by the French. Plausible as these explanations may sound, they ignore economics, among other things.

Mike Adams | November 15, 2005

I wanted to drop you a note to let you know that our university is distancing itself from the professor you recently criticized on townhall.com.

David Limbaugh | November 15, 2005

I don't believe Democrat leaders are quite as sanguine as they're pretending to be about the recent election results and President Bush's low approval ratings.

Dennis Prager | November 15, 2005

They are so shocked that for the first time in history, Muslims have taken to publicly demonstrating against Islamic terror.

Alan Sears | November 15, 2005

Oh, I know it sounds silly.  Laugh if you want to.  But these people aren’t playing reindeer games.  They’ve been stocking up complaints on you for years, and now they want you sacked.

Rebecca Hagelin | November 15, 2005

With the confirmation of John Roberts as chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, and the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito to fill the seat vacated by retiring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, we’re hearing a lot about “original intent” when it comes to interpreting the U.S. Constitution.

Bill Murchison | November 15, 2005

No point offering advice to the Democrats, who have the world, and also their chief Republican adversary, by the tail. So we gather, anyway, from the polls. Still, for the record:

John McCaslin | November 15, 2005

"This is our 9/11," says Merissa Khurma, press attache at the Jordanian Embassy in Washington, referring to the triple suicide-bombing attacks that shook Amman.

Bruce Bartlett | November 15, 2005

Two weeks ago, the President's Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform issued its final report. Although our federal tax system is in dire need of restructuring and simplification, the panel's approach is a non-starter.

Chuck Colson | November 14, 2005

Thousands of cars torched, angry youths shouting to the cameras—these have been the images of France during recent weeks and may be for some time to come.

Michael Barone | November 14, 2005

The 2005 elections suggest that we have the same kind of Puerto Rican style politics we've had since 1995-96. If so, turnout will decide the outcome in 2006.

Star Parker | November 14, 2005

November has been a banner month so far in California for assaulting the traditional family.

Neal Boortz | November 14, 2005

Buried deep in this column is a bit of advice that you would actually pay me for … so read on.

Cal Thomas | November 14, 2005

Last week, President Bush and Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove, in speeches one day apart, appeared to have rediscovered an ingredient the absence of which has contributed to the administration's falling poll numbers: offense.

Suzanne Fields | November 14, 2005

Beneath the wit, the intelligence, the brittle one-liners, the insights, you can hear the voice of a little girl crying in the night.

Phyllis Schlafly | November 14, 2005

When former first lady and U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y. proclaimed that it takes a village to raise a child, many people didn't realize that she was enunciating liberal dogma that the government should raise and control children.

Horace Cooper | November 14, 2005

Rather than admit that they oppose him on ideological or philosophical grounds, special interest groups and liberal Democrats instead choose the low road.

John Leo | November 14, 2005

Critics have noticed that nobody is responsible for anything anymore, since almost everyone is a victim. Here are the top 10 victim stories of 2005.

Robert Novak | November 14, 2005

The events last Thursday suggest the folly of seeking ephemeral legislative victories by sacrificing principle.

Larry Kudlow | November 14, 2005

A brand new, hot-off-the-press survey shows that the American investor class continues to grow by leaps and bounds.

Jack Kemp | November 14, 2005

One critical part of our nation's economic policy - the implementation of our antitrust laws - needs addressing by policymakers.

Doug Giles | November 13, 2005

Fourteen days ago riots broke out in Paris suburbs after two Muslim young men, who were running from the cops, stopped and took refuge against the wrong electric fence and got KFC’d. 

Paul Jacob | November 13, 2005

This week five executives from major oil companies were dragged into a congressional hearing room so that Senators could ask them stupid questions.

George Will | November 13, 2005

Feingold says, implausibly, that ``I don't think about it'' -- seeking the Democrats' 2008 presidential nomination -- ``very much.''
