Lorie Byrd | September 08, 2006

Many congressional Democrats, and other leaders in the Democratic party, have not only abandoned that commitment to unity, but have chosen to put short term political gain ahead of the long term goal of national security. Americans should be outraged by this.

Diana West | September 08, 2006

When President Bush offered his detailed account of successes in extracting information from captured Al Qaeda terrorists -- information that thwarted numerous attacks at home and abroad -- he was compelling in his defense of the CIA's role in this crucial aspect of the war.

Kathleen Parker | September 08, 2006

The controversy over ABC Entertainment's 9/11 docudrama underscores the power of information and the lethality of politics.

Charles Krauthammer | September 08, 2006

James J. Kilpatrick | September 08, 2006

On the Fourth of July in 2002, John Gilmore set out to fly from the West Coast to Washington, D.C. As things turned out, he never made the trip, mainly because the airline security folks wouldn't let him board a plane. He hasn't flown commercially from that day to this.

Paul Greenberg | September 08, 2006

William F. Buckley | September 07, 2006

The keenest immediate question, in our war in Afghanistan, is: What to do about the poppy trade? It is up about 50 percent, on a recent reckoning. And this makes Afghanistan the producer of 92 percent of the world's opium poppies.

Cliff May | September 07, 2006

Five years after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Americans have not been slaughtered a second time on U.S. soil. That is no small achievement.

Roger Schlesinger | September 07, 2006

Strange titles usually lead to even stranger stories, but hopefully not this time. Bad credit and home ownership are an oxymoron.

Chicken hawks: "cowards" who support the Iraq war, but never served in the military.

Cal Thomas | September 07, 2006

How does one measure "progress" in a type of war we have never fought before, a war with no rules or boundaries, a war driven exclusively by religious zealotry and twisted doctrine?

Suzanne Fields | September 07, 2006

The problem facing Democrats is the dilemma if they gain control of the government in the 2006 and 2008 elections. Casey, a moderate liberal, is typical of Democrats unwilling to downsize social welfare programs.

Alan Reynolds | September 07, 2006

Roger Schlesinger | September 06, 2006

Thomas Sowell | September 06, 2006

One of the bitter ironies of the 20th century was that communism, which began as an egalitarian doctrine accusing capitalism of selfishness and calloused sacrifices of others, became in power a system whose selfishness and callousness toward others made the sins of capitalism pale.

Michelle Malkin | September 06, 2006

The mass murder of 2,996 innocent people on American soil forced open my eyes to the Islamic holy war against the West, freedom and modernity.

Walter E. Williams | September 06, 2006

There's so much confusion and emotionalism about discrimination that I thought I'd take a stab at a dispassionate analysis.

Jonah Goldberg | September 06, 2006

No matter what else people may do for a living in loudoun -- a suburb of Washington, D.C. -- it is unmistakably one of those places where federal employees and federal contractors (and people who lobby federal employees for federal contractors) go to sleep for the night.

Linda Chavez | September 06, 2006

There's a pivotal question pundits were not asking this week as the midterm elections officially got under way: What if the political climate dramatically changes in the GOP's favor?

Jacob Sullum | September 06, 2006

As of Friday, when the 60-day blackout period for "electioneering communications" by nonprofit interest groups begins, political speech will enjoy less protection than dirty movies.

Maggie Gallagher | September 06, 2006

Forget the first of January. Every year, as the day after Labor Day approaches, it feels like a brisk new wind blowing through the soul: a new school year. A blank canvas, a virgin blackboard, resolutions unruined, a fresh start.

Paul Weyrich | September 06, 2006

Branch Rickey, the great baseball general manager, once mused, "Luck is the residue of design." Baseball isn't warfare, but Rickey's aphorism speaks to the issue of planning and organizing to achieve a goal.

Mike Adams | September 06, 2006

Some people believe in a world generated by chance, governed by natural causes, and devoid of miracles. I don’t have that much faith anymore. And none of us has that much time.

Tue, Sep 05, 2006

Frank Gaffney | September 05, 2006

There was only one thing truly astonishing about the revelation last week that Richard Armitage, Colin Powell’s deputy at the State Department during George W. Bush’s first term, was the source of Bob Novak’s first column about Iraq war critic Amb. Joe Wilson and his CIA agent wife, Valery Plame.

Bill Murchison | September 05, 2006

You kind of like to imagine the United States, in its third century, as a calm, sophisticated place, notwithstanding the rough-and-tumble populism we so much enjoy.

Roger Schlesinger | September 05, 2006

Let us begin at the beginning, we are talking about mortgage rates in these United States. And no the Federal Reserve doesn't set them either.

Pat Buchanan | September 05, 2006

Paul Greenberg | September 05, 2006

You may not think of Delaware as a Southern state but Joe Biden, its senior senator, has just redrawn the Mason-Dixon line.

Mary Katharine Ham | September 05, 2006

As anyone who lives in the ‘burbs knows, the all-American pastime on Saturdays isn’t necessarily a trip to the baseball diamond.

Ed Feulner | September 04, 2006

Caroline Glick | September 04, 2006

Sunday Supreme Court Justice Edmond Levy presided over a hearing on a petition submitted by one Shimshon Cytryn requesting to be released from Dekel prison and placed under house arrest. Justice Levy deferred his ruling to a later date.

Paul Greenberg | September 04, 2006

The old man had long ago given up fixing shoes and gone into another line of work, buying and selling and making a nice living. But he never found any other work that gave him as much satisfaction as putting new leather soles on a pair of uppers.

Donald Lambro | September 04, 2006

If you believe the usual klatch of armchair pessimists, the U.S. economy's in a tailspin. If so, then why do the numbers say otherwise?

Phyllis Schlafly | September 04, 2006

Conservatives believe that private industry does a better job than government - right?

Robert Novak | September 04, 2006

Both the Senate Republican leadership's unofficial agenda for the last pre-election session of the 109th Congress beginning this week and a privately circulated White House wish list are extraordinarily heavy.

Armstrong Williams | September 04, 2006

Debra J. Saunders | September 03, 2006

If Schwarzenegger is the free-lunch governor -- he won't raise taxes and has failed to slice spending to eliminate the state's $4 billion to $5 billion structural budget shortfall -- Angelides offers free lunch followed by free desert.

George Will | September 03, 2006

Kevin McCullough | September 03, 2006

Wal-Mart never excluded anyone from being employed there based on their sexual preference. To them, and more importantly to the consumer - it didn't matter.
