Rich Tucker | September 16, 2006

There’s not yet such a thing as heaven on earth. But there is a hell. And it can be found in Havana this week.

Doug Giles | September 16, 2006

I love ticking off as many vapid, anti-American and anti-traditional values blowhards as I can. It is one of the chief joys of my life.

Isaac Post | September 16, 2006

Over the past few years, and in reaction to high-profile corporate scandals, many MBA programs have added additional courses on business ethics and corporate social responsibility (CSR).

Kathryn Lopez | September 16, 2006

During the week of the fifth anniversary of 9/11, the Senate and House Minority Leaders, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, insisted on more airtime. I second that motion.

Brent Bozell | September 15, 2006

Maybe it's a good thing that television writers don't try too hard to get involved with plots about religion.

David Limbaugh | September 15, 2006

Can you imagine what would happen if President Bush truly had delivered a partisan speech on the evening of September 11? We would never hear the end of it.

Oliver North | September 15, 2006

People in Washington who ought to know better -- like Sen. John Warner, R-Va., the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee -- have turned a deaf ear to the plight of the Marines.

Pat Buchanan | September 15, 2006

President Bush, speaking on 9/11, had a point. Even some who believe the invasion of Iraq to have been a strategic blunder concede that, if Americans head for the exit ramp, the consequences could be catastrophic.

Diana West | September 15, 2006

When President Bush addressed the nation on Sept. 11, he recalled the worldview that emerged to him five years ago from the hot ashen murk of Ground Zero.

Donald Lambro | September 15, 2006

Charles Krauthammer | September 15, 2006

With the crisis advancing and the moment of truth approaching, it is important to begin looking now with unflinching honesty at the military option.

Tim Chapman | September 15, 2006

Unfortunately, the partisan rancor is threatening to overshadow a very significant constitutional debate that will have a major impact on America’s ongoing ability to wage the war on terror.

Mary Katharine Ham | September 15, 2006

Here’s the deal, guys. We’re all conservatives, here. And, the Democrats are just waiting, praying even, for us to sit around and do nothing this election cycle. You know why?

Lorie Byrd | September 15, 2006

For a couple of years now, Democrats have licked their chops at the prospect of taking back the House and Senate in the 2006 midterm elections. For much of that time it seemed the Democrats were well positioned to pull off the feat.

Armstrong Williams | September 14, 2006

People often ask how I became an entrepreneur and my explanation is that most of my entrepreneurial talents were instilled in me by watching and emulating my father and mother as a child.

Cliff May | September 14, 2006

President Bush said the United States is fighting "the decisive ideological struggle of the 21st century." OK, but remind me: What ideology are we fighting?

Cal Thomas | September 14, 2006

Had it been a small group of liberals rather than conservative writers meeting with President Bush in the Oval Office on Tuesday, they might have run from the room like scalded dogs...

Suzanne Fields | September 14, 2006

Anniversaries are artificial landmarks, but they focus the mind on the details of the remembrance of things past, details otherwise lost to the amnesia of the present.

Matt Towery | September 14, 2006

Last week, an interview about the midterm congressional elections ended by asking me yes or no: "Will the Democrats take control of the House of Representatives in Washington this coming election?"

Paul Greenberg | September 14, 2006

I knew that Jay Rockefeller was a U.S. senator from West Virginia, but before now I had no idea what a seer the man is.

Donald Lambro | September 14, 2006

pollsters conducting internal election surveys for the Republicans told me these persistently sour voter attitudes about the economy have begun to improve.

James J. Kilpatrick | September 14, 2006

Four years ago, in a different place far away, another smart-aleck also stood upon his First Amendment rights. He had better luck, and now he's in the U.S. Supreme Court, ready to defend his glorious victory against a formidable foe.

George Will | September 14, 2006

Liberals think their campaign against Wal-Mart is a way of introducing the subject of class into America's political argument, and they are more correct than they understand.

Marvin Olasky | September 14, 2006

This year, as Washington's spending spree has continued, several conservative pundits have sat in air-conditioned offices and written about the death of compassionate conservatism, which they say has become a euphemism for big government spending.

Emmett Tyrrell | September 14, 2006

Our liberal friends are in a fury of indignation once again! This cannot be good for their health.

Michael Fumento | September 14, 2006

Starting in early 2002, firefighters who responded to the World Trade Center on that awful day the previous September began reporting what became labeled "World Trade Center Cough."

Roger Schlesinger | September 14, 2006

What does it mean invest in your mortgage? The first time I heard the phrase it seemed as if you were to become your own mortgage banker. I thought if I could afford to do that, I wouldn't need a mortgage at all.

Rick Amato | September 14, 2006

A united defense, an unexpected announcement and explosive allegations. Those are the traits that characterized last week's pretrial hearing (known as Article 32) for two of the eight servicemen in the so-called Pendleton 8 case.

Hugh Hewitt | September 14, 2006

The Majority Leader has no option but to run on his record of leadership in the Senate where the month ahead will truly present a unique series of opportunities and possibly a campaign-ending set of dramas.

Scott Garrett | September 14, 2006

The people I represent in the Fifth District of New Jersey remember all too well the events of September 11, 2001.

Robert Novak | September 14, 2006

When Richard Armitage finally acknowledged last week he was my source three years ago in revealing Valerie Plame Wilson as a CIA employee, the former deputy secretary of state's interviews obscured what he really did.

Rich Galen | September 13, 2006

As someone who was an elected City Councilman in the great metropolis of Marietta, Ohio 45750, I can tell you that election night is the same whether you are running in a municipal election or for President of the United States:

David Strom | September 13, 2006

Rather than seeing politicians as providers of solutions to our oil price woes, Americans could rightly see them as part of the problem.

Ann Coulter | September 13, 2006

If you wonder why it took 50 years to get the truth about Joe McCarthy, consider the fanatical campaign of the Clinton acolytes to kill an ABC movie that relies on the 9/11 Commission Report, which whitewashed only 90 percent of Clinton's cowardice and incompetence in the face of terrorism, rather than 100 percent.

Mike Adams | September 13, 2006

Unfortunately, just five months after my speech, the subject of pedophilia is a hot topic at UNH.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | September 13, 2006

In the past six months, much has happened in the contest for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, but its central dynamic has gone largely unnoticed: Hillary has been dropping and Gore has been moving up. According to the latest Fox News poll, Hillary lost almost half of her lead over Gore between March and August.

Douglas MacKinnon | September 13, 2006

Political correctness and the fear of offending, or worse yet, getting sued or picketed, is such, that you will no longer see blacks, Hispanics, most minorities, or even women for that matter, commit a fictional crime.

Michael Medved | September 13, 2006

With all the recent talk about anti-Semitism, who would have thought that Jews would prove so popular?

Michelle Malkin | September 13, 2006

Let me sum up in two words how the unhinged Left copes with the threat of global jihad: "Kill Bush!"

John Stossel | September 13, 2006

Sens. Ted Stevens (R-Alas.) and Robert Byrd (D-W.V.) are the acknowledged kings of pork-barrel spending.

Walter E. Williams | September 13, 2006

Each year since 2004, on Sept. 17, we commemorate the 1787 signing of the U.S. Constitution by 39 American statesmen.

Brent Bozell | September 13, 2006

Days before the ABC miniseries "The Path to 9-11" was to air, they determined the network fudged in its commitment to follow faithfully the facts in the 9-11 commission report. A scene or two in the otherwise remarkable presentation was false.

Mona Charen | September 13, 2006

Before the hostile press, he is a bit wary. But in our setting -- a meeting with half a dozen conservative columnists in the Oval Office on Sept. 12 -- he was intense.

Tony Blankley | September 13, 2006

The following are the chamber remarks of the fictional Lord Harold Reid (whose fictional grandson in the 21st century would become leader of the fictional Democratic Party in the U.S. Senate).

Terry Jeffrey | September 13, 2006

Lindsey Graham of South Carolina is once again in the press, playing his oft-reprised role as the Republican-senator-who-disagrees-with-his-party.

Ben Shapiro | September 13, 2006

Last week, scientists in Washington, D.C., made a shocking discovery: Certain species of male fish in the Potomac River are developing female sexual traits.

Linda Chavez | September 13, 2006

The administration continues to balk at doing the one thing that could make a difference: namely, putting more U.S. troops on the ground in Iraq to bring a measure of order and security to a nation that is incurring some 3,000 civilian casualties each month.

Maggie Gallagher | September 13, 2006

Christians in film and TV? Horrors! Root out these evil alien influences lock, stock and barrel!

Kathleen Parker | September 13, 2006

Flipping through channels on Sept. 11 was like rummaging through a box of old photographs. You see things you hadn't noticed before and ordinary images seem suddenly extraordinary.

Paul Weyrich | September 13, 2006

When I came to work in the United States Senate, 40 years ago this January, I quickly learned that there are two kinds of Senators-workhorses and show horses.

Austin Bay | September 13, 2006

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger complained -- after a number of journalists and politicians saw the film in preview -- that they never spoke several of the lines attributed to them.

There is a virulent form of unpatriotism festering in America today.

Jacob Sullum | September 13, 2006

After years of hard work by drug warriors in Afghanistan, the country no longer produces 87 percent of the world's illicit opium. Now it produces 92 percent, according to the latest suspiciously precise estimate from the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

Nathan Tabor | September 12, 2006

I was heartened to see anchorwoman Katie Couric including a free speech segment in her new version of the CBS Evening News. Free speech remains one of the greatest liberties available to us as American citizens.

William F. Buckley | September 12, 2006

President Bush gives every indication of believing everything he asks us to believe.

Roger Schlesinger | September 12, 2006

I am using myself as an example because I want the reader to understand that what I recommend is generally something I will do for myself, first and foremost.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | September 12, 2006

The decision by the Republican leadership not even to try to pass immigration reform before the election smacks of punting when they should have gone for a touchdown.

Rich Lowry | September 12, 2006

In its way, it is a sign of a return to normality. For decades, the CIA was spooked by the possibility of congressional hearings and lawsuits into forswearing any risk-taking acts.

Phyllis Schlafly | September 12, 2006

It brought to mind the title of the George Gershwin song "They All Laughed" when a Santa Fe, N.M., family court judge granted a temporary restraining order against "Late Show" host David Letterman to protect a woman he had never met, never heard of, and lived 2,000 miles away from.

Cal Thomas | September 12, 2006

Joel Mowbray | September 12, 2006

Today’s Democratic primary in Minnesota’s very blue fifth Congressional district could prove historic.

Mike Bouchard | September 12, 2006

Anywhere outside of Washington, making the job creating, tax cuts permanent seems like a no-brainer.

Thomas Sowell | September 12, 2006

Recently one of those increasingly familiar New York Times editorials disguised as news stories was headlined "Conservatives Help Wal-Mart, and Vice Versa."

David Limbaugh | September 12, 2006

Once again the Democratic leadership is giddy about yet another smoking gun "proving" what a liar President Bush is.

Cal Thomas | September 12, 2006

[T]he object of modern politics is not to say and do things that benefit the country and promote the general welfare but to gain or maintain political power.

Dennis Prager | September 12, 2006

Every so often, one hears the argument that "Left and Right" are outdated terms, or that there really aren't enormous differences in the ways the Left and Right view America, the world, men and women, and just about every other important aspect of life.

Pat Buchanan | September 12, 2006

On Saturday on MSNBC, this writer volunteered that if Al Gore would enter the Democratic primaries, he could defeat Hillary Clinton and win the nomination.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | September 11, 2006

America stands at a crossroads in terms of thought and political ideology. This is the moment in which the conservative movement can win many converts from the black community.

Mary Katharine Ham | September 11, 2006

I rounded the Pentagon on Washington Blvd. and saw an entire side of the building illuminated in blue, a giant American flag draped over the solid concrete wall of the nation’s military nerve center.

Kathryn Lopez | September 11, 2006

In one main storyline in its season premiere earlier this month, "Nip/Tuck" was positively dichotomous, positively pro-life.

Jack Kemp | September 11, 2006

Sept. 9 was National 401(k) Day. The name really makes a lot of sense because it has the potential to improve the savings rates of America's working men and women, but it will require a national effort and a new partnership among public and private entities and our work force in America.

Peter Wehner | September 11, 2006

Five years ago today, Americans opened their newspapers to read front page stories in The New York Times with these headlines: "School Dress Codes vs. a Sea of Bare Flesh" and "In a Nation of Early Risers, Morning TV Is a Hot Market."

Chuck Colson | September 11, 2006

Today marks the fifth anniversary of September 11. What have we in the West learned since that horrible day? There is good news - and bad news.

Alan Sears | September 11, 2006

Cook's statement equates a teacher praying for a student's ailing mother with the determination of radical Muslim terrorists to destroy as many innocent lives as possible.

Michael Barone | September 11, 2006

The collapse of the Wilson-Plame narrative leaves troubling questions about the Fitzgerald investigation -- and the media that cheered it on.

Suzanne Fields | September 11, 2006

The news of the fall of the Twin Towers is burned into memory. A good many of us watched, unbelieving, as the second plane sliced through the steel and concrete.

Debra J. Saunders | September 11, 2006

Two factors will work against Republicans trying to retain control of the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate in November -- and they both have to do with the downside of being the party in power in Washington.

Paul Greenberg | September 11, 2006

The love of baseball is as hard to explain as the game itself to someone who doesn't share it. To explain baseball's peculiar charm would be like an Englishman trying to explain the fascination of a cricket match.

Donald Lambro | September 11, 2006

President Bush has dramatically enlarged the issue of terrorism in the 2006 midterm elections by revealing the names, faces and confessed plots of the Islamic radicals held by the CIA.

Robert Novak | September 11, 2006

The U.S. Navy's last two battleships appeared in December 2005 to have seen their final combat, on their way to being museum pieces. That's not necessarily so.

Burt Prelutsky | September 11, 2006

I no longer accept that we are only at war with Islamic fascists or Islamic fundamentalists or whatever the heck we’re calling them this week.

Rich Galen | September 11, 2006

This is a place where political passions often run, like the tide beneath a new moon, perilously high. Yet we accept, with but a moment's regret, the election of an opponent.

Mike Adams | September 10, 2006

I used to think Georgia Tech was one of the best schools in America. That was before Wayne Clough became the Tech president.

Star Parker | September 10, 2006

Prospects for Senator Rick Santorum's reelection bid are looking much better these days.

Doug Giles | September 10, 2006

I surfed over to Hannity and Colmes, and what I saw and heard was so staggering it made me spit wine all over my TV. And I haven’t had wine in a year.<

William F. Buckley | September 10, 2006

President Bush has eight times (someone is counting) struck the theme that the war we are in is a decisive ideological struggle.

Pat Buchanan | September 10, 2006

What Bush passed over in his speech is that it is the autocratic regimes in Cairo, Riyadh and Amman that hold back the pent-up animosity toward America and Israel, and free elections that have advanced Hamas, Hezbollah, the Moslem Brotherhood and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power.

Debra J. Saunders | September 10, 2006

Now you know why Aussie crocodile aficionado Steve Irwin called the new TV show he was working on "The Ocean's Deadliest."

George Will | September 10, 2006

It has taken five years for 9/11 to receive a novelist's subtle and satisfying treatment, but it was worth the wait for Claire Messud's "The Emperor's Children."

Kevin McCullough | September 10, 2006

Unable to compete in the world of free debate with transparent facts, liberals behaved like children this week - proving that in the end national security and even national identity are always subservient to their own ego, reputation, and appearance.

Paul Jacob | September 10, 2006

One for the side of the angels, with a new devil-turned-angel in our ranks.
