Doug Wilson | August 20, 2006

The deep polarization that plagues American politics has also infected our thinking on globalization. If China continues its rapid economic ascent, the conventional thinking is that this is bad for America.

Doug Giles | August 19, 2006

One way to be certain that you never get a life is to continue to blame others for why you haven’t accomplished anything yet.

Rich Tucker | August 19, 2006

Perhaps the greatest strength Americans enjoy is our ability to put problems behind us and move on. But, when it comes to energy policy, that strength is becoming a liability.

Tom Borelli | August 19, 2006

Ann Coulter's astute observation of special immunity also rings true for CEOs who are disciples of corporate social responsibility.

Thomas P. Kilgannon | August 19, 2006

What the fight over John Bolton is really about is the amount of authority the competing interests in Washington are willing to give the United Nations.

Donald Lambro | August 19, 2006

The White House and Republican officials weren't just giving the GOP's candidate in Connecticut's three-way Senate race the cold shoulder -- they were looking for a replacement.

Peter Wehner | August 18, 2006

Once in a while, we are provided with a clarifying moment in the jumble of news we have to sort through on a daily basis. Last week, we had one.

Burt Prelutsky | August 18, 2006

However, there is one genre whose popularity totally mystifies and even, yes, annoys me. What is it with you people and medical shows?

Brent Bozell | August 18, 2006

A couple of years ago, researchers at the RAND Corp. released a study that found heavy exposure to sexual content on television shows relates strongly to teenagers' initiation of intercourse or their progression to more advanced sexual activities.

Jonah Goldberg | August 18, 2006

The depth of Western denial can be measured in the staleness of the "debate" over terrorism, which is dominated by those who've convinced themselves that President Bush is the central cause of the war on terror because somehow it's "his" war.

David Limbaugh | August 18, 2006

Want to know where the Democratic Party stands and where America would be under their leadership? Just ask Jimmy Carter.

Mona Charen | August 18, 2006

When Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert addressed the Knesset and claimed victory against Hezbollah, some members of the body audibly scoffed.

Oliver North | August 18, 2006

In the aftermath of Israel's abortive, on-again, off-again military campaign against Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon, there are calls for a no-confidence vote to unseat Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

Pat Buchanan | August 18, 2006

The Democrats are determined to make the election of 2006 a referendum on Bush and the war in Iraq. And, as of now, that is how history will likely record it.

Charles Krauthammer | August 18, 2006

Before mandating the return of south Lebanon to Lebanese government control, it lists the seven Security Council resolutions going back 28 years that have demanded the same thing.

Kathleen Parker | August 18, 2006

Sen. George Allen's macaca moment has granted the nation a few days' reprieve from thoughts of mass murder and provided a new vocab word for the zeitgeist.

Mike Gallagher | August 18, 2006

Let’s stop playing politically correct games and being worried about what the ACLU is going to do. This isn’t some charade, this war is real.

Lorie Byrd | August 18, 2006

What was not offered by the Duke faculty was an examination of journalistic incompetence during Katrina.

Val Prieto | August 17, 2006

That is the life of the Independent Journalist in Cuba: Clandestine meetings, clandestine writing, clandestine transmissions with clandestine words of a clandestine truth.

John McCaslin | August 17, 2006

We’re told speaking invitations have been extended to Vice President Dick Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert for a Sept. 19 gala salute to retiring 16-term Illinois Rep. Henry J. Hyde

Rebecca Hagelin | August 17, 2006

Any parent who doubts the need for great vigilance in our Internet age should take note of a recent survey conducted by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Cam Edwards | August 17, 2006

Some people seem to think that if we scrapped the 2nd Amendment, all the criminals in this country would lay down their weapons.

Ross Mackenzie | August 17, 2006

Random reflections on 8/10, the London foiling of something on the order of a 9/11 repeat. . . .

Hugh Hewitt | August 17, 2006

There have been hundreds of "major" airline crashes in the past 80-plus years. We haven't stopped flying

Larry Elder | August 17, 2006

Actor Mel Gibson's "Jews cause all the wars" drunk driving tirade elicited a coast-to-coast butt-whupping.

Cal Thomas | August 17, 2006

In the present war against what President Bush has properly labeled "Islamic fascism," defectors are just as valuable.

Suzanne Fields | August 17, 2006

We woke up with scary good news. Our British cousins had thwarted a band of home-grown terrorists who were going to use liquid explosives, carried in hand luggage, to blow up airliners bound for America.

Diana West | August 17, 2006

If this were a sane world, this is what we would hear during the president's next address to the nation:

Donald Lambro | August 17, 2006

Prevention of the plan to destroy 10 jetliners bound for America has sharply boosted President Bush's approval scores for his handling of the war on terrorism and homeland security.

Alan Reynolds | August 17, 2006

The core consumer price index (CPI) rose by 0.2 percent in July. The chain-weighted core CPI did not rise at all, following two months of 0.1 percent gains.

Marvin Olasky | August 17, 2006

Try on this exciting photo caption: "A Hezbollah PR man poses for dramatic effect in front of a tire fire."

Robert Novak | August 17, 2006

As the Senate this month neared its summer recess, the senior Republican senator delivered a rebuke to the second-ranking Democratic leader.

Wed, Aug 16, 2006

Ann Coulter | August 16, 2006

Last week, British authorities arrested 24 members of a terrorist cell plotting to blow up about a dozen U.S.-bound planes simultaneously. As a result of those arrests, we learned:

James J. Kilpatrick | August 16, 2006

The facts in the case of Weldon Angelos are not in dispute: He really did sell 24 ounces of marijuana to an informant, and he really did carry a handgun when he did it.

Peter Wehner | August 16, 2006

George Will is one of the outstanding columnists of our time, and he has significantly shaped conservatism (including my own) over the years. But his latest column about the President's foreign policy agenda in the Middle East is misguided and wrong in several important respects.

Thomas Sowell | August 16, 2006

How many cease-fires have there been in the Middle East -- or is the number too large to remember?

Michelle Malkin | August 16, 2006

It's the story that the journalistic elite would rather just go away.

John Stossel | August 16, 2006

These are tough days for political satirists. Any satire about government boondoggles is soon upstaged by an actual government program that's more inane than anything comedians could invent.

Walter E. Williams | August 16, 2006

While academic leftists, and I'd include their media allies, are not communists, they are anti-anti-communists.

Brent Bozell | August 16, 2006

Over the last five years, the resurgent radical left has found empowerment in the Democratic Party through what the political scribes antiseptically call the "Internet grass roots."

Jonah Goldberg | August 16, 2006

The Wall Street Journal reported this week that the Transportation Security Administration is testing sophisticated machines that use elaborate algorithms to determine whether air travelers have "hostile intent."

Tony Blankley | August 16, 2006

By that standard, Buchanan, in this book, is positively fearless. He is also right. Americans, from whatever nation or ethnicity we originated, have formed a common culture worth preserving and a common history worth continuing.

Ben Shapiro | August 16, 2006

With Israel's decision to accept a United Nations-brokered cease-fire with the Iranian/Syrian/Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah, it has suffered the most ignominious defeat in Israeli history.

Terry Jeffrey | August 16, 2006

Had the Liquid Bomb Plot (as some English papers call it) succeeded, a headline the next day might have accurately read, "British Terrorists Attack America."

Linda Chavez | August 16, 2006

We are just weeks away from the fifth anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, and yet we have quickly forgotten the lessons of that terrible day.

Paul Weyrich | August 16, 2006

We have become victims of political correctness to the point that we have tied our own hands in handling cases such as this.

Kathleen Parker | August 16, 2006

In the wake of last week's foiled terrorist plot to blow up 10 U.S. jetliners flying between Britain and the United States, sensible people are reconsidering our government's stubborn opposition to profiling.

Kathleen Parker | August 16, 2006

Michael Medved | August 16, 2006

The arrests in the British bombing plot of some 24 homegrown Jihadists – including at least three recent converts to Islam—suggest a persistent problem that won’t yield to the normal processes of acculturation and assimilation.

Austin Bay | August 16, 2006

Trust that conspiracy theorists will attempt to exploit the fifth anniversary of 9/11 to spread sensational claims and sensational lies.

Rich Lowry | August 15, 2006

For the past 30 years, left-right debate over America's wars has traveled a well-worn rut.

Roger Schlesinger | August 15, 2006

Americans, on a whole, spend too much on their retirement plans.

Maggie Gallagher | August 15, 2006

When it comes to war, rallying men is relatively easy. A Washington Post-ABC News poll this summer, for example, found just 38 percent of all men (compared to 55 percent of all women) favored a deadline for pulling out of Iraq.

Mary Katharine Ham | August 15, 2006

A little less than three months from Election Day, the Santorum campaign is catching a bit of momentum. A recent poll showed Santorum down only six points, and late-summer ads on his tough immigration position seem to be paying off.

Thomas Sowell | August 15, 2006

Now that a number of state courts have refused to redefine marriage to include same-sex unions, cries of "discrimination" are being heard.

Cal Thomas | August 15, 2006

Who believes the United Nations has the guts or other necessary body parts to disarm Hezbollah, as a previous U.N. resolution required the terrorist organization to do?

Dennis Prager | August 15, 2006

A little over three years ago, CBS sent Dan Rather to Baghdad to ask meaningless questions to, and provide a propaganda vehicle for, Saddam Hussein.

Debra J. Saunders | August 15, 2006

Any political consultant will tell you there is little reason for an incumbent to debate a challenger.

Donald Lambro | August 15, 2006

Sometimes you can tell a lot about a politician by the company he keeps or who his supporters are.

George Will | August 15, 2006

The ``new Middle East,'' the ``birth pangs'' of which we supposedly are witnessing, reflects the region's oldest tradition, the tribalism that preceded nations.

Bruce Bartlett | August 15, 2006

Last week's defeat of Sen. Joe Lieberman in Connecticut's Democratic primary is being treated as a purge by both Democrats and Republicans.

Paul Weyrich | August 15, 2006

So much has been said about the defeat of Senator Joseph I. Lieberman (D-CT) that I am not sure I can add to the discussion.

William Rusher | August 15, 2006

It is probably wise not to make too much of Ned Lamont's victory over Sen. Joseph Lieberman in Connecticut's recent Democratic senatorial primary.

Mike Adams | August 15, 2006

I never pondered what life would be like as a Jewish student at the University of Texas at Austin – that is, until I read a letter written by 27 anti-Semites and self-hating Jews who teach there.

David Limbaugh | August 15, 2006

The political party that is known for nothing if not for politicizing the War on Terror claims to be upset that Vice President Dick Cheney was "politicizing" the war when he suggested that Ned Lamont's primary victory over Joe Lieberman could embolden terrorists. Couldn't they please spare us the phony outrage for a change?

Pat Buchanan | August 15, 2006

Ehud Olmert, who gave Chief of Staff Dan Halutz the green light to launch the shock-and-awe air campaign, cannot survive the moral, political and strategic disaster his country has suffered.

Bill Murchison | August 15, 2006

From the look of things, many had concluded Bush owed an apology all right -- to the late Herr Hitler for lowering him, morally, to the level of the Islamofascists

Mon, Aug 14, 2006

Kathryn Lopez | August 14, 2006

Move over, Hillary: Russ Feingold is going to be the Democratic nominee for president in 2008.

Lynn O'Shaughnessy | August 14, 2006

Have you seen the commercial in which a guy carts around his nest egg - about the size of a Mini Cooper - everywhere he goes?

Diana West | August 14, 2006

I'm all for looking on the bright side, but this is ridiculous.

Megan Basham | August 14, 2006

Like a lot of conservative film critics, I was more than a little apprehensive to hear that anti-American conspiracy theorist Oliver Stone would be making a movie about 9/11.

Star Parker | August 14, 2006

The executive director of MoveOn Political Action Committee did a victory dance on the opinion page of The Washington Post. He called Ned Lamont's defeat of Sen. Joe Lieberman in the Connecticut primary a "watershed moment" and Lamont's "principled progressivism" the "bold" new direction for the country.

Bill Bennett | August 14, 2006

Most discussion of the Constitution and religion today focuses naturally on the First Amendment, but...

Michael Barone | August 14, 2006

Thursday's lesson was not one Tuesday's victors wanted to learn.

Paul Greenberg | August 14, 2006

Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the Democratic Party. Because if Tuesday's election returns in Connecticut are any indication, it's taking a well-traveled road - right over a cliff.

Robert Novak | August 14, 2006

How different from Lieberman would Lamont vote in the Senate? Not much.

Mike Adams | August 14, 2006

In today’s column, I have to make a pretty embarrassing confession.

Suzanne Fields | August 14, 2006

In the larger scheme of things, Mel Gibson's drunken outburst against the Jews is very small potatoes. But it underlines an important element of anti-Semitism often overlooked.

Burt Prelutsky | August 14, 2006

People are always writing books about the fall of great civilizations.

Sun, Aug 13, 2006

Caroline Glick | August 13, 2006

The resolution represents a near-total victory for Hizbullah and its state sponsors Iran and Syria, and an unprecedented defeat for Israel and its ally the United States.

John Leo | August 13, 2006

This is a farewell column. After 18 years of punditry, it's time to work on other projects, including a book.

Kevin McCullough | August 13, 2006

Is it just me or does it seem like the nation was just days ago acting like it was September 10 all over again?

Paul Jacob | August 13, 2006

Despite the hype, our politics is stagnant. So stagnant, in fact, that an incumbent being defeated is like a sighting of Halley's Comet.
