Robert Novak | April 15, 2006

The talk of Washington during the first week of the congressional Easter recess was how Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid has seized control of the Senate despite a 10-seat advantage by the Republicans.

Rich Tucker | April 14, 2006

The French surrendered this week.

Pat Buchanan | April 14, 2006

In just two weeks, six retired U.S. Marine and Army generals have denounced the Pentagon planning for the war in Iraq and called for the resignation or firing of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

Rich Galen | April 14, 2006

Kathleen Parker | April 14, 2006

"We don't know all the facts about the alleged Duke lacrosse rape, but ..."

Brent Bozell | April 14, 2006

Gasoline prices are rising, which means it's time for a new round of hysterical media stories about that dastardly oil industry, its obscene profits, and its nefarious ways.

Jonah Goldberg | April 14, 2006

Hollywood has yet to make a "great" movie about Washington. This is the cinematic corollary to the even hoarier cliche that the United States has yet to produce a great novel about the nation's capital. These cliches reign supreme because they happen to be true.

David Limbaugh | April 14, 2006

There is only one group of people with less credibility on the immigration issue than Washington politicians.

Mona Charen | April 14, 2006

Too sick even to read, I listened to radio and watched television for long hours every day. What I heard and saw was not conducive to recovery.

Oliver North | April 14, 2006

We came here to film a World War II documentary for FOX News and came away with a lesson in leadership.

Charles Krauthammer | April 14, 2006

Many of the hundreds of thousands of Hispanic demonstrators who poured out into the streets on April 10 may not know much English, but they've learned the language of American politics: Flags. Tons of flags. And make them American.

Chuck Colson | April 14, 2006

Would you willingly face execution to defend a lie or a hoax? Of course not. Which is one good reason to believe in the resurrection.

John McCaslin | April 13, 2006

Joe Klein, who recently left The New Yorker to become chief Washington correspondent for Time, says American politics - indeed, our national leaders - are in a sad state.

Herman Cain | April 13, 2006

Our annual April Madness – filing our income taxes – has no drama, no Cinderella stories, and the only underdog is the taxpayer.

William F. Buckley | April 13, 2006

It pays not to try to understand the thinking behind the prosecution of Zacarias Moussaoui in Virginia.

Larry Elder | April 13, 2006

Will the real so-called black leader please stand up?

Cal Thomas | April 13, 2006

If the Department of Homeland Security were doing its job, it would have joined the Immigration and Naturalization Service, checking identification and employment records for at least some of the millions demonstrating for citizenship in recent days.

Suzanne Fields | April 13, 2006

Accusations of rape and racism are powerful indictments, and it's important to examine the evidence before we determine punishment. The more inflammatory the accusation, the greater the care.

Debra J. Saunders | April 13, 2006

On Tuesday, Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald had to take back a key sentence in a brief he had filed earlier with the court concerning charges against Scooter Libby, former top aide to Veep Dick Cheney, for perjury and obstruction of justice in the investigation into who leaked the name of CIA operative Valerie Plame. That sentence had spawned a spate of page-one Bush-bad stories.

Matt Towery | April 13, 2006

I have to ask if the American public is in touch with reality. Public surveys show that most people believe the country is headed in the wrong direction. But circumstances don't support this reductive view.

Emmett Tyrrell | April 13, 2006

Perhaps the most dubious cliche in American history is the one intoned over and again after terrorists killed 3,000 Americans on Sept. 11, 2001. That was the cliche that claimed that now "America has changed forever."

Alan Reynolds | April 13, 2006

One critical lesson our schools have failed to teach aspiring journalists is that when something sounds too bad to be true, it probably isn't.

Marvin Olasky | April 13, 2006

Many San Franciscans next week will be commemorating the centennial of their city's worst day while worrying that one even harsher is yet to come.

Ross Mackenzie | April 13, 2006

Lately the news has told of Iran enriching uranium, of rallies agitating for illegal immigrants, and of the Moussaoui conviction followed by in-court airings of desperate telephone calls on 9/11.

Robert Novak | April 13, 2006

A unilateral two-state solution resulting in a fragmented, economically unviable Palestinian state concerns thoughtful people on both sides.

Wed, Apr 12, 2006

Ann Coulter | April 12, 2006

Try showing up in any other country on the planet, illiterate and penniless, and announcing: "I've seen pictures of your country and it looks great.

Maggie Gallagher | April 12, 2006

The proliferation of new political labels is a sign of the times: The old Reagan coalition, that potent conglomeration of libertarians, entrepreneurs, social conservatives and anticommunists, is cracking apart. The Dems appear headed for electoral victory, but without yet a sign of a coherent governing philosophy among them.

W. Thomas Smith, Jr | April 12, 2006

Myths abound when it comes to military personnel in the modern American armed forces. Most are in some way related to recruiting new soldiers, and who’s fighting and who’s dying.

Suddenly, thankfully, it does not seem that Hillary Clinton is on an automatic trajectory to become the next Democratic nominee for president. Two recent polls suggest problems that may loom in her path.

Michelle Malkin | April 12, 2006

Last month, the unhinged government school teacher of the month award went to Jay Bennish -- a left-wing, anti-war screecher/teacher who used his high school world geography class in the Denver area as a Bush-bashing bully pulpit.

John Stossel | April 12, 2006

If you're a scientist working for private industry, it helps to invent something useful. But if you're a scientist trying to get funding from the government, you're better off telling the world how horrible things are.

Walter E. Williams | April 12, 2006

For most of our history, there was a guarantee that immigrants would come here to work. The alternative was starvation.

Brent Bozell | April 12, 2006

Poor John Green. The executive producer of ABC's weekend "Good Morning America" broadcasts got a month-long involuntary vacation after his private e-mails were exposed saying "Bush makes me sick," and that former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright has "Jew shame."

Jonah Goldberg | April 12, 2006

You want to solve the illegal immigration problem? Well, here's the answer: Make Mexico rich.

Tony Blankley | April 12, 2006

If my parents and their fellow Englishmen could put up with descending Nazi bombs on their houses, we should be able to cope with Bush's descending poll numbers without trying to one up Dante's description of hell.

Terry Jeffrey | April 12, 2006

On Monday, throngs of reportedly more than 1 million people nationwide, many of them undoubtedly illegal aliens, demonstrated just how wrong the president was by massing in our public squares to demand U.S. citizenship for illegal aliens.

Ben Shapiro | April 12, 2006

Prospects look bleak for the Republican Party in the upcoming midterm elections. The latest Washington Post poll shows registered voters heavily favoring Democrats over Republicans.

Kathleen Parker | April 12, 2006

Walking among thousands of friendly Latino protesters in the nation's capital Monday, I couldn't help getting caught up in the group-hugness of the occasion.

Ed Feulner | April 12, 2006

Last year, Washington spent $53 billion on homeland security -- and $60 billion on corporate welfare. Clearly our priorities are misplaced, and it's time to change that.

John McCaslin | April 11, 2006

Fly an Irish flag on the streets of America, not a problem. Wave a Mexican flag, and hear the controversy swirl.

William F. Buckley | April 11, 2006

Democratic protocols get pretty elusive these days. In an attempt to sort it all out, we hovered for a moment on a wild idea. Why not send the illegals to France?

Thomas Sowell | April 11, 2006

Activists who are organizing mass marches and demonstrations in cities across America may well be congratulating themselves on the huge numbers of people they can get to turn out to protest efforts in Congress to reduce illegal immigration.

David Limbaugh | April 11, 2006

People suffer all sorts of indignities, but few things are more difficult to take than being falsely accused of misconduct.

Cal Thomas | April 11, 2006

It happens twice a year, at Christmas and Easter.  The newsweeklies sometimes carry cover stories. The newspapers print items calling the reason for these seasons into question.

Dennis Prager | April 11, 2006

The latest jobless rate -- 4.7 percent -- is at a five-year low.  Yet, despite this and other good economic news, the Left is frantic to repeal the Bush administration's tax cuts.

Bill Murchison | April 11, 2006

And all this time we thought Republicans adored, defended, lauded and extolled the free market. Guess again.

Pat Buchanan | April 11, 2006

In the last six months, Americans have been treated to quite a spectacle: famous pundits and politicians hitting the sawdust trail to the mourner's bench to confess, "Had I only known then what I know now, I would never have supported this war in Iraq."

Bruce Bartlett | April 11, 2006

Last week, the Tax Foundation released new polling data on Americans' attitudes toward taxation. As always, it is interesting reading.

Phyllis Schlafly | April 10, 2006

Like many teenagers, President George W. Bush dashed off to Cancun for spring break. Protected by a long and impenetrable fence and plenty of security guards, he met privately with the Mexican president and wealthy chief executive officers from both countries.

Jack Kemp | April 10, 2006

As I've often said before, the only thing one learns from history is that no one ever learns from history.

W. Thomas Smith, Jr | April 10, 2006

Qubad Talabani, son of Iraqi president Jalal Talabani, believes the power of a centralized government in Baghdad should be “lessened,” and more autonomy given the 18 provinces that comprise Iraq.

Burt Prelutsky | April 10, 2006

As I sit here, I don’t yet know if Rep. Cynthia McKinney is going to face criminal charges for hitting a Capitol Hill police officer. And, frankly, I’m not sure if I want to see her charged. 

Doug Wilson | April 10, 2006

Protests over proposed immigration reforms raged across the country last week, bringing to light the elephant that has been in the room for some time now: illegal immigration. What to do?

Chuck Colson | April 10, 2006

Hugh Hefner wants to be remembered as a philanthropist and a cultural revolutionary. "Looking across America's pornographic wasteland," says Chuck Colson, "I might think of a more appropriate description."

Michael Barone | April 10, 2006

"This much is certain: The welfare state as we know it cannot survive." So Charles Murray writes in The Wall Street Journal in an article on his new book, "In Our Hands."

Star Parker | April 10, 2006

You know we've come a long way when our idea of racism has moved from fire hoses and segregation to a black congresswoman's outrage at not being recognized by a Capitol Hill policeman.

Mike Adams | April 10, 2006

Last week, a young black man accused me of racism – apparently in response to some of my recent columns including “Change Your Ethnicity Day.” The man to whom he made the accusation was also a black man. Unbeknownst to my accuser, the other black man was a guy I took into my home for four months while he was going through a rough divorce.

Suzanne Fields | April 10, 2006

This is an important week for Jews and Christians. Jews celebrate the first day of Passover on Thursday, and Christians celebrate Good Friday, followed by Easter on Sunday. Both holidays link sorrow with liberation as the tragic gives way to redemption, with rejoicing in the renewal of spring.

Diana West | April 10, 2006

So there I was, thinking that the only "imminent" threat was the Islamization of the Western world, a historic shift well underway in Europe.

John Leo | April 10, 2006

Mr. Answer Man, why is it that many people don't like the idea of Katie Couric becoming the new Dan Rather? Is it because, after all those father figures, it's jarring to get the national kid sister? If we're going to bypass Dad, why can't we have a reassuring mother figure instead of turning immediately to one of the perky kids?

Jennifer Roback Morse | April 10, 2006

Alpine, California,  is a peaceful rural community that lies at the foothills of the Viejas Mountains, east of San Diego. Bordering the Cleveland National Forest, this friendly village hardly seems a likely setting for a show-down over free enterprise, disabled rights and lawsuit abuse.

Robert Novak | April 10, 2006

The U.S. decision last Thursday not to seek a seat on the new United Nations Human Rights Council followed a week of frantic backstage conflict.

Collaboration in Casablanca and Washington, D.C.: Do the contributions of important people amount to more than a hill of beans?

George Will | April 09, 2006

A rivulet, soon to be a river, of journalism is reporting -- as a mystery deciphered, even a scandal unearthed -- that McCain, who occupies the Senate seat once held by Barry Goldwater, is a conservative Republican.
