Larry Kudlow | March 25, 2006

Why is it that so many French people would rather riot than work?

Burt Prelutsky | March 25, 2006

What I can’t begin to fathom are the people who seem to have the same tender feelings for sexual predators that the rest of us have for our pets.  Unfortunately, these aren’t the same mushy-headed simpletons holding candlelight vigils outside San Quentin.  Instead, they’re judges and legislators.

Robert Novak | March 25, 2006

Disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff has advised friends that he has no derogatory information about former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and is not implicating him as part of his plea bargain with federal prosecutors.

William F. Buckley | March 24, 2006

Our democratic society trips along and we become accustomed to practices which, if viewed for the first time, would strike us as extraordinary, maybe infamous.

Kathleen Parker | March 24, 2006

When President George W. Bush consults Catholic bishops and Hillary Clinton invokes Jesus, you can bet politics are in a prayerful heat.

Mike Adams | March 24, 2006

Rosemary DePaolo’s administration is beaming with joy as the University of North Carolina - Wilmington prepares to host Kanye West for a spring concert on its beautiful seaside campus.

Jonah Goldberg | March 24, 2006

The best moment of political theater at the president's news conference this week came when that thespian carbuncle of bile, Helen Thomas, hung a question mark at the end of a diatribe. The "dean" of the White House press corps all but called President Bush a lying warmonger who invaded Iraq for no legitimate reason.

David Limbaugh | March 24, 2006

Recently, President Bush has been taking his case for the War on Terror, Iraq Theater, to the public in a new round of speeches, press conferences and other public appearances.

Mona Charen | March 24, 2006

President Bush has made errors, as all humans do, but one thing he has not been guilty of is bad faith. The same cannot be said of his critics.

Oliver North | March 24, 2006

For two nights in a row, I was awakened by boisterous college-age shouting and laughter from the street in front of the ancient hostelry where our FOX News production team was billeted. Unable to sleep, I arose to go for a walk -- and stepped into a time warp.

Charles Krauthammer | March 24, 2006

Today's big debate over Iraq seems to be: Is there or is there not a civil war? Yes, say the defeatists, citing former Prime Minister Ayad Allawi, a man with an ax to grind against the current (elected) government that excluded him.

Thu, Mar 23, 2006

John McCaslin | March 23, 2006

We figured a political column that concentrates heavily on exposing congressional shenanigans might not be the best place to point out that coyotes - the actual four-legged kind - are suddenly roaming the streets of Washington.

Suzanne Fields | March 23, 2006

The contentious and ever more partisan argument over whether Iraq is finally convulsed in a civil war misses the point, it seems to me. Maybe it's the entire world that is finally convulsed in a civil war.

Robert Novak | March 23, 2006

While officials privately debate whether communitarian violence in Iraq constitutes a low-grade civil war, there is no disagreement about the oil crisis there, which has little to do with the insurgency.

Patrick Hynes | March 23, 2006

If the GOP’s conservative Christian base is disaffected and unhappy with Republican candidates, who will stuff the envelopes come election time? Who will pound the yard signs? Man the phone banks? Hand out literature? Register new voters? Bus people to the polls?

Clinton W. Taylor | March 23, 2006

Leave Islam, go to the gallows.  That’s still the rule in Afghanistan, as we see in the sad case of Christian convert Abdul Rahman, on trial for his life there.  How could the Taliban possibly justify such a barbaric practice?  They didn’t really even try.

Joel Mowbray | March 23, 2006

When two young men were walking toward me from the opposite direction on the sidewalk recently, my primary thought was the obvious one: move out of the way to avoid the head-on collision.

Lorie Byrd | March 23, 2006

Now that many of our soldiers and Marines in Iraq are serving their second and third tours there, have been away from their families for many months, and some have even watched their buddies die, those on the Left and in the media want to know what they think and how they feel.  Well, isn’t that thoughtful of them?

Larry Elder | March 23, 2006

In February, our economy created 243,000 new jobs.  Yet one of our major newspapers tells us almost half of Americans consider the economy in a recession.

Cal Thomas | March 23, 2006

Perhaps it was only a coincidence, or maybe it was planned, but in choosing the same day, Tuesday, March 21, to speak about Iraq, President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair said some things that were needed reminders to the American and British people, many of whom are "going wobbly" over the war.

Debra J. Saunders | March 23, 2006

Allow me to explain why I remain among the dwindling numbers of Americans -- about 37 percent, according to the American Research Group -- who approve of the job President Bush is doing.

Matt Towery | March 23, 2006

The deceptively simple truth about all of this is that while most Americans aren't wild about the Iraq venture, it's not something that dominates their lives and thoughts.

Emmett Tyrrell | March 23, 2006

He is a man who has taken chances on behalf of principles, principles that are at once sound and require resolve to defend. In this case the principle is defending civilized values against barbarism.

Larry Kudlow | March 23, 2006

If the polls are telling us things are so bad, why is the stock market telling us things are so good?

Michael Fumento | March 23, 2006

At least 1 of every 100 Americans has epilepsy, a disturbance in the brain’s electrical activity causing recurrent seizures. These may be as mild as twitching fingers or as severe as violent muscle contractions causing unconsciousness. But we’ve come a long way since the disorder was considered demonic possession, and doctors have a slew of medicines that often keep the disorder in check.

Ross Mackenzie | March 23, 2006

Any time you get comfortable with the notion that liberalism no longer controls the nation's key realms of opinion-molding, you might stir yourself for a long walk outside in oxygen-filled air.

Marvin Olasky | March 23, 2006

How can we end our crippling reliance on time zones? Finch's universal time proposal solves the problem, because -- hold onto your hats -- within his system, time never changes.

Alan Reynolds | March 23, 2006

Try to guess who said this: "High taxes on earned income discourage labor supply and reduce the returns from entrepreneurship and higher education. Growth, innovation and human capital development are all harmed as a result."

Wed, Mar 22, 2006

Ann Coulter | March 22, 2006

Like callers to talk radio claiming to be Republicans angry with Republicans, liberals love to pretend public opinion is always in the process of shifting in their direction.

W. Thomas Smith, Jr | March 22, 2006

Just after nine o’clock – 186 years ago this very morning – two men armed with dueling pistols faced each other on an isolated field in Bladensburg, Maryland. The field, known as the “Valley of Chance,” was located just off the main Baltimore-Washington stage route.

Linda Chavez | March 22, 2006

Will the United States become an extension of Latin America, or will the Melting Pot transform Hispanic immigrants into just another American ethnic group similar to the Irish, German, and Italian Americans who are descendants of previous immigrant flows?

Horace Cooper | March 22, 2006

Senate Democrats should not join Russ Feingold's efforts to censure President Bush. He is charting a path that is ahistorical and extra-constitutional. In doing so, the senators risk establishing a precedent they would soon regret.

Jennifer Biddison | March 22, 2006

Congress may be out of session this week, but that doesn’t mean the policy world has stopped turning.  Here are just a few things you should know about but may not find in the media headlines.

John Stossel | March 22, 2006

I hope the teachers in America's public schools are more candid than their union officials and some of the public-education advocates and leftist smear groups who are criticizing my TV special "Stupid in America." They are promoting myths:

Walter E. Williams | March 22, 2006

Some call the people behind the Washington-D.C.-based Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) busybodies, but I call them wannabe tyrants. Let's look at their agenda, which seeks greater control over our lives.

Brent Bozell | March 22, 2006

To mark the third anniversary of launching the war to depose Saddam Hussein, the manufacturers of the "news" have established their usual template, Realistic Media vs. Pollyanna Bush. It's not pessimism versus optimism, but reality versus hallucination.

Jonah Goldberg | March 22, 2006

Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley - of course - found that of the roughly 100 kids they tracked for 20 years, starting in nursery school, the whiny kids were more likely to become conservatives.

Tony Blankley | March 22, 2006

We don't need to learn new tricks, we need merely to remember and return to our old strengths. Listening to the BBC world service in the pre-dawn hours this morning, I caught, precisely, such a glimmer of hope in a report of an old faith defeating a new fear.

Terry Jeffrey | March 22, 2006

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's authority, she apparently believes, extends all the way to rewriting the Declaration of Independence. Words written by Thomas Jefferson and edited by Benjamin Franklin won't do for her.

Ben Shapiro | March 22, 2006

WASHINGTON -- Today, after six years of unending attacks on the honor and credibility of his administration, President Bush called for a constitutional amendment to hand over the reins of American governance to members of the mainstream press.

Burt Prelutsky | March 22, 2006

There are many things I like and admire about President Bush. But his constant pandering to Mexico’s Vicente Fox doesn’t happen to be one of them.

Kathleen Parker | March 22, 2006

When New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd asked, "Are Men Necessary?" in the title of her funny book critiquing today's gender-confused culture, I took the question to be a rhetorical play on E.B. White and James Thurber's "Is Sex Necessary?"

Michelle Malkin | March 22, 2006

Unfortunately for Rahman, he was originally born a Muslim in Afghanistan -- and he has been forced to defend his religious conversion in his home country's court, where he now faces the death penalty for turning to Jesus.

Jacob Sullum | March 22, 2006

A year ago Hillary Clinton said the electronic entertainment kids enjoy is "a kind of contagion," a "silent epidemic" threatening "long-term public health damage to many, many children and therefore to society." Now she wants to find out if it's a problem.

Paul Greenberg | March 22, 2006

Almost from the first, the celebrated author and provocateur got my attention (and admiration) with a typically comprehensive Tom Wolfe blast at yet another modern inconvenience, e-mail.

Ed Feulner | March 22, 2006

Our message of opportunity and prosperity will trump the fear and hatred spread by our enemies -- provided we get the truth out. They can't defeat us head-to-head. We must make sure they don't beat us by capturing hearts and minds.

Maggie Gallagher | March 21, 2006

Twelve million. That's the number of illegal immigrants living right now in the United States, according to a just-released study by the Pew Hispanic Center. The majority are from Mexico.

William F. Buckley | March 21, 2006

There is an unseemly fight brewing between the Catholic Church in America and the U.S. government.

Chuck Colson | March 21, 2006

Some three hundred Americans have given their lives for freedom in Afghanistan. Yet today in a Kabul court, a Christian faces execution for his faith.

Thomas Sowell | March 21, 2006

Horrifying stories about the rapes and murders of children, and about judges who go easy on sex offenders who prey on the young, have prompted some state legislatures to tighten up the laws and restrict the sentencing discretion of judges.

Mike Adams | March 21, 2006

Good morning, students! I can see by the expressions on your faces that you are surprised to see me empty-handed this morning. After all, you took a test last class meeting and probably expected your results back today. But, don’t worry one little bit. I have a good reason for not grading your exams. I simply didn’t feel like doing it.

David Limbaugh | March 21, 2006

Democrats are constantly accusing Republicans of blindly defending President Bush's Iraq War policies, but how about their steadfast refusal to make leaders of their own party accountable for their ridiculously irresponsible positions on the war and national security matters generally?

Cal Thomas | March 21, 2006

Not so long ago, in a country that now seems far, far away, Ronald Reagan told the nation: "we don't have deficits because people are taxed too little. We have deficits because big government spends too much."

Dennis Prager | March 21, 2006

Throughout much of last week, hundreds of thousands of students in France were angrily protesting.  They have been joined by the major French labor unions, which are threatening a general strike.  And what is this all about?

Bill Murchison | March 21, 2006

Somewhere on my "to-do" list for the year -- No. 116, No. 117 or something like that, right after "rearrange sock drawer" -- is when I picked up Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code" to ascertain, if possible, why a whacked-out account of Christian origins has earnest people debating the whacked-out implications.

Doug Wilson | March 21, 2006

In America, we’ve been blessed with unprecedented prosperity for over 200 years. Credit it to the blessings of God and a potent mixture of innovative minds, self-reliant souls and plentiful natural resources.

Phyllis Schlafly | March 20, 2006

Led by U.S. Reps. Peter King, R-N.Y. and Steve King, R-Iowa, 56 members of the House of Representatives are urging House Judiciary Committee Chairman James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., to oppose the renewal of the section of the Voting Rights Act that mandates foreign-language ballots.

W. Thomas Smith, Jr | March 20, 2006

The latest criticism of the war in Iraq has become so politically manipulative, so disingenuous, so over-the-top; it is undermining a critical cause that we cannot afford to lose; and for a variety of global security reasons.

Jack Kemp | March 20, 2006

Americans may be surprised, in contrast to conventional wisdom, to learn of the comparative peacefulness of Afghan cities when compared to other big cities around the world.

Clinton W. Taylor | March 20, 2006

Exactly what was it that new Yale student Sayeed Rahmatullah Hashemi did for the Taliban?  A little digging shows he was far more than just a mouthpiece.  To paraphrase one of my critics, Mr. Rahmatullah was quite the rising star in the Taliban firmament. 

Michael Barone | March 20, 2006

Three weeks ago, I wrote about George W. Bush's September 2002 National Security Strategy and examined how it has stood up over time. Last week, the White House released an updated version of the National Security Strategy.

Star Parker | March 20, 2006

As we spread freedom around the world, I think there is concern, judging from much of what we see going on at home, that we're losing a sense of what the pillars are that hold our own free society together.

Caroline Glick | March 20, 2006

On the eve of Israel's general parliamentary elections next Tuesday, the Jewish state faces multiple faces multiple challenges.

Suzanne Fields | March 20, 2006

This is not a great century for the humanities. The great works that once were essential to define the educated man are barely tolerated in our great universities.

Diana West | March 20, 2006

Last month, 12 mainly European-based, mainly Muslim or ex-Muslim intellectuals, alarmed by the spell on free speech cast by Cartoon Rage 2006, signed onto an anti-totalitarian manifesto for freedom of expression published by Denmark's Jylland-Posten.

Robert Novak | March 20, 2006

"Presidents come and go," Rep. Jerry Lewis told the House Rules Committee last Wednesday.

Jennifer Roback Morse | March 20, 2006

Getting married, setting up a household, and having kids are expensive. That’s one reason people are delaying marriage and childbearing. But we can do something about the high cost of housing.

Megan Basham | March 20, 2006

I have seen the terrorist, and he is me. And you. And all of us. But don’t worry, because being a terrorist is now a good thing.

Sun, Mar 19, 2006

John Leo | March 19, 2006

Like many news junkies, I’ve noticed that stories putting Muslims in a bad light tend to be sketchy and underreported.

William F. Buckley | March 19, 2006

A sane and studious observer of the international scene addressed the dinner guests and concluded his optimistic analysis of our Iraqi venture with an arresting afterthought. "What we will not be seeing, when President Bush leaves office, is an Iran with a nuclear bomb."

Paul Jacob | March 19, 2006

Tthis isn't just a multi-billion-dollar big business scandal. This is a multi-billion-dollar government scandal.

Larry Kudlow | March 19, 2006

If the polls are telling us things are so bad, why is the stock market telling us things are so good?

George Will | March 19, 2006

At this moment, one of the most dangerous since the Second World War, America's perils are exacerbated by the travails of a president indiscriminately despised by Democrats and increasingly disregarded by Republicans. What should he do?
