Horace Cooper | March 04, 2006

Among many important cases that the Supreme Court will be considering this spring is the Texas redistricting case, LULAC v. Perry.

Robert Novak | March 04, 2006

In a closed-door meeting Tuesday of the top House Republican leadership, the consensus was that President Bush had gotten himself in deep trouble on the Dubai ports management deal and he was on his own to try to save it.

Bruce Bartlett | March 03, 2006

Now that the Dubai ports crisis has been resolved, it’s important for people to understand how it arose and why.

Brent Bozell | March 03, 2006

Scene after scene concluded with a comedic punchline revolving around soiled diapers, flatulence, mucus and God-knows what other bodily excretions, while my little boy and his friend giggled in delight. Thanks, Hollywood.

Rich Tucker | March 03, 2006

This year, the spotlight will be on “controversial” movies that were proven uncontroversial by our lack of interest in them.

Rich Galen | March 03, 2006

Cal Thomas | March 03, 2006

Few things can ignite a more heated debate these days than when the subject of "the media" is introduced into polite conversation.

Kathleen Parker | March 03, 2006

It is easy to dislike David Irving and to wish him good riddance as the British writer/historian begins a three-year prison term in Austria for Holocaust denial.

Jonah Goldberg | March 03, 2006

America lost many things on 9/11. Some say America lost its soul; others say we lost our freedom; still others argue that we lost some ill-defined "innocence." I believe we lost something else as well: a sense of America as a black-and-white nation.

David Limbaugh | March 03, 2006

Have I been mistaken all these years that we gained our independence from Britain in 1776? Reading the news lately one gets the distinct impression the Old Media think we are operating under the British system of government where President Bush can be ousted any time on a vote of no confidence.

Oliver North | March 03, 2006

The geniuses who run the Fourth Estate in American have gone nuts. This week, the commander in chief visited U.S. troops fighting a war in Afghanistan, paid a state visit to the largest democracy on earth, closed a deal on nuclear cooperation and met with the man most likely to capture or kill Osama bin Laden. Big news, right? Not for the potentates of the press.

Matt Towery | March 03, 2006

Far too many people have succumbed to temptation and borrowed heavily to make luxury purchases they otherwise would have avoided.

Eliot Peace | March 03, 2006

Why has Mitt Romney spent so much time in South Carolina recently? Perhaps his own words shed some light: "I don't think it's lost on anyone who is considering a national run that no Republican has been elected president that didn't win the South Carolina primary," said Romney. 

Charles Krauthammer | March 03, 2006

Nothing tells you more about Hollywood than what it chooses to honor. Nominated for best foreign film is ``Paradise Now,'' a sympathetic portrayal of two suicide bombers. Nominated for best picture is ``Munich,'' a sympathetic portrayal of yesterday's fashion in barbarism: homicide terrorism.

Chuck Colson | March 03, 2006

If all goes as expected at this Sunday’s Academy Awards, Brokeback Mountain will win in the "Best Picture," "Best Director," and perhaps even "Best Actor" categories.

Paul Greenberg | March 03, 2006

What a pleasure to be back in school again, this time at the University of Central Arkansas. Maybe this time I'll get it right.

Megan Basham | March 03, 2006

Spanking children, praising Jesus, and admonishing her mixed-up nieces, Mama Madea displays the kind of family graces so common to our culture, yet so rarely represented on film, and audiences can’t help responding despite this film's C-grade production values.

John McCaslin | March 02, 2006

During Wednesday's Senate Judiciary Committee debate on imnigration, senators found themselves detailing their own heritage. That prompted the following exchange by first-generation American Sen. Arlen Specter, Pennsylvania Republican, and Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republian, whose ancestors all arrived by 1850.

Mike Adams | March 02, 2006

On Tuesday, March 7th at Auburn University, I will make an important public announcement.

Thomas Sowell | March 02, 2006

The Economist magazine reports that the official unemployment rate in South Africa is 26 percent but that the real unemployment rate there may be even higher. The South African economy is growing. Why then this extremely high unemployment rate? What is going on?

Larry Elder | March 02, 2006

I recently interviewed General Georges Sada, who served as the second-highest ranked general in the Iraqi Air Force.

Cal Thomas | March 02, 2006

Jews run Hollywood, some say. If they do, one might expect them to produce films that better reflect their heritage and values, rather than serve as apologists for those who wish to exterminate the Jewish people.

Suzanne Fields | March 02, 2006

The drip, drip, drip of the popular culture dulls our senses. An open society with high technology exposes increasing numbers of adults and children to the lowest common denomination of sex and violence.

Emmett Tyrrell | March 02, 2006

So we hear this week that President George W. Bush is taking delight in the spread of the "alternative press" and the gentle detumesence of "mainstream media". Well I join him in his satisfaction.

Robert Novak | March 02, 2006

While Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton was ripping President Bush's handling of American ports management, Bill Clinton was pushing for one of his favorite White House aides to be hired to defend the deal.

Michael Fumento | March 02, 2006

Just as the controversy over the Danish newspaper cartoons of Mohammed seems to be waning overseas, it’s heating up here.

Alan Reynolds | March 02, 2006

When the Federal Reserve's Survey of Current Finances for 2004 was released, the leading newspapers naturally indulged their propensity to make the news look as bad as possible.

Ross Mackenzie | March 02, 2006

At last the Pentagon has produced a name for the war we are in against jihadist terror.

Todd Manzi | March 02, 2006

A grieving mother of a soldier killed in Iraq wants to voice her opinion. She has a message about the war in Iraq and feels the American people need to hear what she has to say.

Marvin Olasky | March 02, 2006

Who is our Winston Churchill now?

George Will | March 02, 2006

Today, with all three components of the ``axis of evil'' -- Iraq, Iran, North Korea -- more dangerous than they were when that phrase was coined in 2002, the country would welcome, and Iraq's political class needs to hear, as a glimpse into the abyss, presidential words as realistic as those Britain heard on June 4, 1940.

Herman Cain | March 02, 2006

Effective leadership in business and politics requires going to W.A.R. to achieve successful solutions:

Ed Feulner | March 02, 2006

In the past, new Americans were welcomed with a solemn ceremony that matched the commitment they were making to their adopted homeland. But today’s new citizens have no such uplifting experience.

Ann Coulter | March 01, 2006

This is my first annual Oscar predictions column, for which I am uniquely qualified by not having seen a single one of the movies nominated in any category.

Burt Prelutsky | March 01, 2006

For years, I’ve hated listening to the infantile blathering of America’s leftists.

The Republican Party appears to be coalescing around the happy assumption that, while Hillary Clinton will win the Democratic nomination, she cannot be elected. So, the self-delusive logic says, she is really God's gift to the Republican Party.

Thomas Sowell | March 01, 2006

Government is not the only institution that promises something for nothing. The decline of General Motors is just one consequence of the idea that labor unions can get their members something for nothing.

Michelle Malkin | March 01, 2006

Last week, I skewered Democrat opportunists who have turned into tough-sounding profiling advocates to exploit the White House ports debacle.  Today, I must express bottomless disgust with those on the Right who have turned into mush-mouthed race-card players to shift blame away from President Bush for his miserable mishandling of the situation.

John Stossel | March 01, 2006

Educational experts, freed from the massive regulations that snarl the public schools, can come up with new and better ideas for teaching.

Walter E. Williams | March 01, 2006

High up on my list of annoyances are references to the United States as a democracy and the suggestion that Iraq should become a democracy. The word "democracy" appears in neither of our founding documents -- the Declaration of Independence nor the U.S. Constitution.

Brent Bozell | March 01, 2006

Objectivity shows up in the funniest places on TV news. Take, for example, the latest taped message from Osama bin Laden, where the architect of Sept. 11 spits in America's face by comparing the "criminality" of the American military to that of Saddam Hussein.

Jonah Goldberg | March 01, 2006

This week the Supreme Court heard arguments in yet another campaign finance case. At issue is a Vermont law that caps not only how much people can give to a candidate, but how much a candidate can spend.

Tony Blankley | March 01, 2006

In the last few days, several free market and other conservative commentators -- along with various U.S. governmental spokesmen -- have taken to labeling those of us with reservations concerning the Dubai Ports World (DPW) deal as nativist, racist or Islamophobic.

Ben Shapiro | March 01, 2006

Politics is the art of jumping. If you identify a popular cause, you jump on the bandwagon. And if you feel the political ship sinking beneath your feet, you jump off. If you spot a popular politician, you hop on his coattails. And if you see a politician heading for a train wreck, you hop off the train.

Terry Jeffrey | March 01, 2006

Why isn't President Bush pressuring the United Arab Emirates to become the United Arab Democracies? Doesn't our security depend on it?

Linda Chavez | March 01, 2006

 I thought I'd lost the ability to be shocked by anything that happened on an American university campus -- that is until I read the New York Times magazine this weekend.

Kathleen Parker | March 01, 2006

Another day, another headline. The world moves on. Not I.

Paul Greenberg | March 01, 2006

Any reliable field guide to the flora and fauna of American politics would surely include a hefty section on one of its perennials: hysteria.

Frank Gaffney | February 28, 2006

Recent headlines call to mind a notable Shakespearean turn of phrase: “These are the times that try men’s souls.” Actually, what today’s events are likely to “try” (or test, in today’s parlance) is our national resolve. Hanging in the balance may be nothing short the fate of the Free World and perhaps even our lives.

Maggie Gallagher | February 28, 2006

A funny thing happened on the way to the overpopulation crisis.

William F. Buckley | February 28, 2006

There are military historians who can list for you battles in recorded time in which one of the contending parties knew ahead that his side was doomed.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | February 28, 2006

Like a completely refurbished “pre-owned vehicle,” Al Gore seems to be positioning himself to Hillary Clinton’s left and as greener than John Kerry for a run at the 2008 Democratic nomination for president. His slogan might well read “reelect Al Gore.”

Chuck Colson | February 28, 2006

Religious freedom doesn't just have to be defended internationally. Religious freedom needs to be defended - vigorously - right here at home.

Thomas Sowell | February 28, 2006

Suppose someone left you an inheritance of a million dollars -- with the proviso that every cent of it had to be spent on tickets for you to go watch professional wrestling matches. If you happened to be a professional wrestling fan, you would be in hog heaven.

David Limbaugh | February 28, 2006

In their opportunistic opposition to the Dubai Ports World takeover of commercial container operations at six major U.S. ports, Democrats aren't just reversing themselves on so-called "racial profiling" but on their phony condemnation of President Bush for allegedly shattering our alliances in the War on Terror.

Cal Thomas | February 28, 2006

Is now the time for pro-lifers to go for it all, to swing for the fences and try to overturn Roe v. Wade? Or, is a gradual approach the better way to restore legal protection for the unborn?

Dennis Prager | February 28, 2006

There's a certain consistent pattern regarding the worldwide Left's assessment of culpability for Muslim terror. It is the fault of the murdered.

Bill Murchison | February 28, 2006

Let me come back, if I may, to a concern I raised recently -- centering on how a sense of disproportion is taking over our political culture -- as in, well, you know, that quail-hunting saga involving Dick Cheney. Whatever happened to that one, anyway?

Rebecca Hagelin | February 28, 2006

It's not enough to remind our kids to watch out for the guy in the dark trench coat lurking on the edge of the school playground, we've got to realize that the guy in trench coat is now in our sons' and daughters' bedrooms - live and personal - through the unfiltered internet.

Jennifer Biddison | February 28, 2006

Do you remember the day you found out one of your role models was imperfect?  Perhaps you saw your mom punish the wrong sibling for breaking a vase, or you heard your kindergarten teacher swear.  I’m finding myself just as disillusioned right now with several of our nation’s prominent Christians.

Burt Prelutsky | February 28, 2006

The truth is, if you exercise every day, watch your diet, never smoke or drink, you may outlive the fat couch potato next door. Or, depending on your respective genes, you may not.

Bruce Bartlett | February 28, 2006

A lot of my friends are not happy with me for writing it and I have been embraced by a number of people on the left whom I would ordinarily consider my political enemies. Both are mistaken about why I wrote the book and what I hope to accomplish with it.

Joel Mowbray | February 28, 2006

During the two-day Palestine Solidarity Movement conference that had received substantial advance press coverage for the organizing group’s ties to terrorism and Georgetown University’s willingness to play host, the most disturbing incident revolved around a several month-old baby.

South Dakota politicians may have saved an unconstitutional statute and the hunting revenue they covet, but South Dakotans will pay in the lawlessness that may result.

Mike Adams | February 27, 2006

I am writing to submit my letter of resignation as a regular columnist for your conservative website. My decision comes in response to the following letter, submitted by a professor in my department to all the other professors in my department (myself excluded):

Phyllis Schlafly | February 27, 2006

When our supposedly compassionate federal government pokes its nose into areas that, under our principle of federalism, should be none of its business, the result is often unintended consequences, gross injustices, and of course massive costs.

John Leo | February 27, 2006

We are awash in euphemisms and evasive language.

Michael Barone | February 27, 2006

Three and a half years ago, in September 2002, the Bush administration issued its National Security Strategy. It was, as Yale historian John Lewis Gaddis has written, "the most fundamental reassessment of American grand strategy in over half a century," since Harry Truman set America on its course in the Cold War.

Star Parker | February 27, 2006

I was aghast to read Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle's response to a question from The New York Times columnist John Tierney, "How long will blacks vote for a party that opposes the voucher programs they strongly favor?"

Suzanne Fields | February 27, 2006

Harvard is famous for its ghosts, the spirits of the great men who lectured and studied there over the centuries since its founding in 1636.

Diana West | February 27, 2006

President Bush has asked anyone opposed to the operational sale of a half dozen American ports to a United Arab Emirates company "to step up and explain why all of a sudden a Middle Eastern company is held to a different standard than a Great British company."

Jennifer Roback Morse | February 27, 2006

As the author of a book called Smart Sex, I have become an expert on many forms of Dumb Sex

Robert Novak | February 27, 2006

It was no surprise that Sen. Charles Schumer, a fiercely partisan Democrat always hunting for political advantage, ignited the furor over management of America's ports. But why did congressional leaders of George W. Bush's Republican Party join the attack?

Eliot Peace | February 27, 2006

Though the South Carolina primary is still some two years away, presidential wannabes are already trekking to the state by the truckload.

Armstrong Williams | February 27, 2006

There is a dangerous theme emerging in the post September 11 era. It’s the frightening willingness for our citizens and our leaders to treat foreigners as threats to national security, solely because they are of Middle Eastern descent.

Jack Kemp | February 27, 2006

To turn down this contract would further weaken our relationships with moderate Arab allies and I believe ultimately, it would weaken our own national security and our chances for peace and liberalization throughout the Middle East and Africa.

Ilan Halimi's barbarous murder in France should awaken all Jews to the most significant truth of our times: Today, every Jew in the world is on the front lines of war.

Debra J. Saunders | February 26, 2006

Here's my take on the news that Dubai Ports World, a company largely owned by Dubai of the United Arab Emirates, is about to run operations at six major U.S. ports.

Paul Jacob | February 26, 2006

For a price, the mob offers protection. So do many politicians, such as Colorado State Senator Deanna Hanna.

George Will | February 26, 2006

In some recess of David Irving's reptile brain, he knows that his indefensible imprisonment is helping his side. His side consists of all the enemies of open societies.
