Burt Prelutsky | April 08, 2006

China is fostering a nationwide improvement program which includes TV shows, slogans, university courses and even competitions between cities, all intended to replace Mao with Miss Manners. I, for one, wish China well. Even if they are a bunch of rotten Commies, it can’t hurt to have them at least become polite rotten Commies.

Thomas P. Kilgannon | April 08, 2006

The administration's belief that the UN can do better is rooted more in optimism than in reality.

Caroline Glick | April 08, 2006

On Monday, Russia's Novaya Gazeta newspaper reported that part of Ukraine's Soviet-era nuclear arsenal may well have found its way to Iran.

Robert Novak | April 08, 2006

Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, on Thursday personally torpedoed Speaker Dennis Hastert's attempt to get a tax cut extension bill through the House before the Easter recess began this weekend.

Jonah Goldberg | April 07, 2006

The funny part of France's latest round of riots is what they're rioting about. These rabid rebels smashing their way through people and property alike, shouting revolutionary slogans and playing Robespierre in a FCUK hoodie are demanding ... continued job security with paid vacations.

Kathleen Parker | April 07, 2006

The question of choice in abortion just got complicated in ways that would furrow Solomon's brow.

William F. Buckley | April 07, 2006

Half the concerned world is wondering what to do about Iran. The other half will benefit from it all, or go down in the big sinking ship.

Mike Adams | April 07, 2006

The other night, I made a big mistake. I accidentally scratched one of my Browning gun cases. I could have used some touch-up paint to fix it but I decided that would be too easy. Instead, I just bought another one.

Rich Tucker | April 07, 2006

It seems everyone is looking to be offended these days.

Charles Krauthammer | April 07, 2006

We say, of course, that this will be the very last, very final, never-again, we're-not-kidding-this-time amnesty. The problem is that we say exactly the same thing with every new reform. And everyone knows it's phony.

Brent Bozell | April 07, 2006

In mid-March, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) fined CBS stations $3.6 million for airing a long teen-orgy scene in the police series "Without a Trace." In response, some networks let it be known they were cutting back on the salacious new offerings for spring. Or at least they're making a public show of cutting back.

David Limbaugh | April 07, 2006

If you choose to believe the Democratic mantra that Bush lied about Iraqi WMD to lead us into war against Iraq, feel free to allow your partisanship or gullibility to subsume your powers of discernment. But how about some of the other Democratic rhetorical excesses?

Mona Charen | April 07, 2006

Concerned that the raging immigration debate would spark violence, officials in at least two schools in Colorado have banned students from bringing flags to school, the AP reports. Predictably, this news and associated rumors have lit up the phone lines at call-in shows around the nation.

Oliver North | April 07, 2006

In a 600-word screed published this week by the New York Times, Kerry lays out his vision for the future. Unfortunately, like so much else in the Massachusetts liberal's political life, it is full of flim-flam, half-truths, distortions and outright falsehoods.

Pat Buchanan | April 07, 2006

With the Gallup Poll showing 51 percent of Americans want all U.S. troops out of Iraq by year's end, John Kerry has made his move.

Chuck Colson | April 07, 2006

The modern eugenics movement grew in the United States in the 1920s and captured the demonic imagination of one Adolf Hitler. But don’t think it died with the demise of Nazi Germany.

Megan Basham | April 07, 2006

However enthusiastic director Liz Friedlander and producer Diane Nabatoff were for the trust themes in Pierre Dulaine’s real story, they let the distrustful nature of their business get the better of them.

Ben Shapiro | April 06, 2006

On April 28, Universal is set to release "United 93," a full-length feature film about the events surrounding the fateful flight crashed by passengers in a field in Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, 2001.

Matt Towery | April 06, 2006

Most media have missed the most important aspect of Rep. Cynthia McKinney's alleged assault on a Capitol policeman.

Larry Elder | April 06, 2006

Does Mexico practice what it preaches?

Cal Thomas | April 06, 2006

To paraphrase Richard Nixon, Democrats won't have Rep. Tom DeLay to kick around anymore.

Suzanne Fields | April 06, 2006

Hef and Barbie occupy radically different worlds, but both have contributed to changing images of women in the culture, and both earned big bucks doing it.

Emmett Tyrrell | April 06, 2006

The problem the president and his staff have is finding replacements with "stature." That is the word used in the media, "stature."

Robert Novak | April 06, 2006

Before Tom DeLay suddenly let it be known Monday night that he would resign from Congress, the word in Republican circles had been that he envisioned a post-leadership career in the House as an Appropriations subcommittee and perhaps eventually full committee chairman.

Ross Mackenzie | April 06, 2006

The space program provided the generation's seminal statement of imminent doom - from an Apollo 13 having experienced a life-threatening on-board explosion: Houston, we have a problem. Today, a four-letter problem poses a far more cataclysmic prospect for mankind - extinction. Spell the problem I-r-a-n.

Alan Reynolds | April 06, 2006

I have often written about immigration and never fail to be misunderstood.

George Will | April 06, 2006

In the past four presidential elections, Republican candidates have averaged just 40 percent of the Illinois vote.

Wed, Apr 05, 2006

Ann Coulter | April 05, 2006

If only liberals were half as angry at the people who flew planes into our skyscrapers as they are with Tom DeLay, we might have two patriotic parties in this country.

Rich Galen | April 05, 2006

Hillary Clinton made a fundamental decision in 2002 to support the invasion of Iraq. In doing so, she sought the center of American politics, reacting to issues much as her husband had throughout his ascent to the presidency.

Michelle Malkin | April 05, 2006

There's only one thing more damning than the recent caterwauling of cop-bashing Rep. Cynthia McKinney and her race-mongering mob:

John Stossel | April 05, 2006

You would think my teaching had been my crazy idea. I was only trying to accept the union's offer.

Walter E. Williams | April 05, 2006

After this season, it's just possible that the GMU Patriots will be able to hold its own against top schools, as does the economics department and law school, in recruiting basketball players.

Brent Bozell | April 05, 2006

The Washington Post isn't very good at hiding its feelings about abortion when it lets its political reporters profile the Washington elite in their Style section.

Mike Adams | April 05, 2006

UNC-Wilmington has a new scandal on its hands that may well cause supporters of the diversity movement to seriously rethink their position on moral relativism – the underlying philosophy of the diversity movement. Perhaps it is more accurate to say that some will begin to seriously think about their commitment to relativism for the first time.

Jonah Goldberg | April 05, 2006

It looks like Katie Couric, that apple of America's eye, will be the next anchor of "CBS Evening News," arguably the most prestigious job in television journalism.

Tony Blankley | April 05, 2006

I first met him in early 1990, just after Newt had been elected Republican minority whip in the House of Representatives.

Ben Shapiro | April 05, 2006

Why do Israelis continue to sanction inaction and concession in the face of evil?

Terry Jeffrey | April 05, 2006

A virtual fence, by contrast, might protect skittish senators from the ill-considered criticism of the liberal media and liberal interest groups, but it would also perpetuate unnecessary risks for illegal border-crossers and Border Patrolmen alike.

Linda Chavez | April 05, 2006

As the Senate continues to grapple with immigration reform, it's time to clear the air of some broad misconceptions in the current debate. Since writing about this topic over the last few weeks, my inbox has been flooded with e-mails raising questions.

Jacob Sullum | April 05, 2006

Critics of the lobbying reform bill recently passed by the Senate say it doesn't adequately address earmarks, those highly specific appropriations legislators slip into spending bills to help special interests.

Kathleen Parker | April 05, 2006

Para espanol, oprima el dos. Even if one does not speak Spanish, most Americans are familiar with those words. They hear them nearly any time they make a call to the phone, utility or other company that offers service in two languages. "For Spanish, press two."

Megan Basham | April 05, 2006

Let me be clear: a movie like Slither isn’t for the uninitiated. If memories of killer tomatoes and armies of darkness claim no cherished place in your teenage memories, I can almost guarantee you won’t appreciate it.

Larry Kudlow | April 04, 2006

As long as the American boom beckons, Mexicans in search of prosperity will continue to stream to this country. They have a strong incentive to do so.

Maggie Gallagher | April 04, 2006

Don't call me anti-immigration.  But I do want one thing from Congress: Come up with a plan to secure our borders.

William F. Buckley | April 04, 2006

The fatality figures in Iraq are perhaps telling a story, which would be that the war focuses progressively on internecine killings.

John McCaslin | April 04, 2006

Kessler, who wrote the book "A Matter of Character: Inside the White House of George W. Bush," took issue with Kelley's lurid drug charges during an appearance on CNBC's "Capital Report."

Dennis Prager | April 04, 2006

Here are three questions comparing liberals and conservatives:

Burt Prelutsky | April 04, 2006

The way that so many people, especially politicians, went nuts over the ports deal reminded me once again what a difference party designation makes. One only has to compare how harshly Sam Alito was treated during his confirmation hearings with the way that the ACLU’s chief counsel, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, sailed through hers.

Jennifer Biddison | April 04, 2006

In this week’s roundup of the conservative movement, I’ll tell you about these awards, as well as discuss which groups are speaking up on immigration, PACs that have a policy focus, and an anti-earmark bus tour.

Thomas Sowell | April 04, 2006

What is more frightening than any particular policy or ideology is the widespread habit of disregarding facts. Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey put it this way: "Demagoguery beats data."

David Limbaugh | April 04, 2006

I watched with disgust Chris Wallace's excellent interview of Sen. Russ Feingold on "Fox News Sunday," where Feingold indignantly defended his quixotic, yet still outrageous, motion to censure President Bush for his NSA surveillance program.

Cal Thomas | April 04, 2006

ABC News has suspended for one month without pay John Green, executive producer of the weekend edition of "Good Morning America," because of an e-mail he wrote. I say "an" e-mail, even though Green wrote at least two that have recently come to light. More about the second e-mail in a moment.

Debra J. Saunders | April 04, 2006

Members of Congress who support an immigration bill that would include a guest worker program and what Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., called a "pathway to legal status" for illegal immigrants insist that they want to discourage further illegal immigration. If so, they can prove it.

Rebecca Hagelin | April 04, 2006

Manhunt is a preferred alternative that teaches both literary skills and details of history as it captivates students and makes the past come alive.

Bill Murchison | April 04, 2006

Just after Easter, the Texas Legislature convenes in special session to address -- yes, again -- the state of public education hereabouts.

Herman Cain | April 04, 2006

Cesar Chavez was surely proud of his Hispanic heritage but, like civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., he fought to protect the rights and interests of legal U.S. citizens.

Pat Buchanan | April 04, 2006

While the president has blundered -- on Katrina, Harriet Miers and the Dubai ports deal -- his larger problem is that his policies do not seem, at least to his countrymen, to be working. A shuffle and new deal that changes the face cards in the White House and Cabinet deck can't alter that.

Bruce Bartlett | April 04, 2006

According to press reports, the first job for Josh Bolten, the new White House chief of staff, will be to find a new treasury secretary. President Bush believes that he has not gotten enough credit for the good economy and that Treasury Secretary John Snow has not done enough to make sure he gets that credit.

Jack Kemp | April 03, 2006

We must pass an immigration reform package that not only works, but is reasonable, respected and responsible.

Phyllis Schlafly | April 03, 2006

The most controversial case for the U.S. Supreme Court this term does not concern abortion, gay rights, the death penalty, or even the detention of enemy combatants. No, the hottest legal issue is based on an argument between Hershel Hammon and his wife about their daughter going to a boyfriend's house.

Eliot Peace | April 03, 2006

South Carolina Representative Ralph Norman, a developer from the Charlotte suburb of Rock Hill, SC, is challenging 24-year Democratic Congressman John Spratt in the 5th Congressional District.  Townhall.com attended the fundraiser and obtained an exclusive interview with candidate Norman.

W. Thomas Smith, Jr | April 03, 2006

DuBois, 79, passed away last Monday. He was one of 16.1 million American veterans of World War II. Only 3.5 million are still with us, and we are losing them at a rate of well over 1,000 each day.

Michael Barone | April 03, 2006

Let's say you were part of a group designing the news media from scratch. Someone says that it would be a good idea to have competing news media -- daily newspapers and weekly magazines, radio and television news programs. Sounds like a good start.

Robert Novak | April 03, 2006

Basketball junkies watching March Madness on CBS late Sunday afternoon March 19 may have been enticed by promotions for "60 Minutes" to stay tuned for a tale of impending global doom that the Bush administration was suppressing.

Clinton W. Taylor | April 03, 2006

Speaking at a Yale College Master’s Tea last week, Columbia Professor Todd Gitlin lamented the condition of the American Left: “There is currently a degree of intellectual paralysis, public fog, and collective and enthusiastic ignorance that defies comprehension.” Professor Gitlin may as well have been speaking of Yale itself these days. 

Jennifer Roback Morse | April 03, 2006

It was the audio that did it. Riding in the car, listening to a news report of the "student protests" against the immigration bills, I heard the sounds of crowds chanting, shouting, demanding. For a moment, I thought I was hearing student protesters in France. And that sound alarmed me, and activated me on immigration in a way no economic arguments could do.

Mike Adams | April 03, 2006

Good morning students! It’s good to see you this morning - although you are probably perplexed that I’ve called together only a dozen of you for this special study session. Please be patient, I only have a few things to say before I give you a special assignment that should make your semester much easier.

Star Parker | April 03, 2006

With all the ink these days about "values" and so-called "values voters," it might be worthwhile to take a moment and consider what exactly these values are that we're talking about.

Suzanne Fields | April 03, 2006

Anti-Semitism is an ancient virus, ebbing with time but never going away. Napoleon liberated the ghettoes in the countries he conquered, but the monarchs of Europe put them back as soon as the little corporal was sent into exile.

Debra J. Saunders | April 03, 2006

Sen. Dianne Feinstein must have been a saint in her past life, because in this life she enjoys high poll numbers, respect from people in both parties and Dick Mountjoy as her Republican opponent in her 2006 re-election.

Diana West | April 03, 2006

As one of those American rarities -- a Los Angeles native -- I looked at recent, mainly Mexican protests against proposed restrictions on illegal immigration with more than just outrage over lost U.S. sovereignty.

John Leo | April 03, 2006

In his 1995 book "The Revolt of the Elites and the Betrayal of Democracy," the late Christopher Lasch argued that America's political and cultural elites had opened up a gap between themselves and ordinary Americans.

Paul Greenberg | April 03, 2006

If no good deed goes unpunished, imagine the retribution that awaits a lifetime of honest, uncompromising, devoted public service.

Paul Jacob | April 02, 2006

Next thing you know, the Defense Department will announce, to much fanfare, that it won't be quartering soldiers in our homes.

George Will | April 02, 2006

Taking the temperature of our churning planet, with its tectonic plates sliding around over a molten core, involves limited precision.
