Carrie Lukas | October 28, 2006

Next week, IWF in conjunction with the College Sports Council is hosting a rally/press conference outside of the Department of Education to call for Title IX reform.

Ben Shapiro | October 28, 2006

Here are the most recently published political books I’ve been reading in rainy Cambridge – at least when I’m not being forced at hemp-point to read aloud from Lenin’s Imperialism: The Highest Stage of Capitalism.

Robert Novak | October 28, 2006

Neutral Democratic political operatives believe the emergence of Sen. Barack Obama as a 2008 presidential candidate after his performance on NBC's "Meet the Press" may do less damage to front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton than to John Edwards.

William F. Buckley | October 27, 2006

The New Jersey court has simply brought the gay marriage issue one step forward in its ineluctable march to the Supreme Court -- or to a constitutional amendment.

Glen Lavy | October 27, 2006

In handing “committed” same-sex couples the full range of benefits available to married couples, the New Jersey Supreme Court has not only invited the state legislature to redefine “marriage” as … well, pretty much anything – it has also shown a deplorable lack of concern for the future of its youngest citizens.

Rich Galen | October 27, 2006

The New Jersey Supreme Court - those same judicial geniuses who decided that a legislatively mandated deadline to get Robert Torricelli's name off the ballot in the 2002 mid-term election was really just a suggestion - has decided that same-sex marriages may be constitutionally permitted in the Garden State.

Cliff May | October 27, 2006

Hamas may not have funds to pay the salaries of civil servants and improve social services for Palestinians. But resources to fund its propaganda efforts? That, evidently, is not a problem.

Ken Connor | October 27, 2006

It's campaign season, which means there is plenty of mud being tossed back and forth between candidates, especially on campaign commercials. This "dumbing down" of political debate is always unfortunate, but it becomes tragic when sound bites endanger the lives of vulnerable human beings.

Ross Mackenzie | October 27, 2006

Samplings from a potpourri of topics currently in the news . . .

Carrie Lukas | October 27, 2006

James Madison University’s (JMU) recent decision to eliminate ten sports teams is the latest example of the bizarre world of gender fairness on campus.

Robert Knight | October 27, 2006

The major media are soft-selling the New Jersey Supreme Court’s Wednesday decision ordering “gay marriage” or its equivalent, lest the ruling become a fire bell in the night for social conservatives two weeks before the election.

Rich Lowry | October 27, 2006

Let the Nancy Pelosi honeymoon begin. Sure, the current House Democratic minority leader hasn't even won a House majority yet, and it is traditional for honeymoons to follow, rather than anticipate, the blessed event.

Lorie Byrd | October 27, 2006

This election season to give Democrats perhaps their best opportunity in years to fulfill their dream of taking back the House and the Senate, too. So how on earth are they going to spin it when they fail?

Mary Katharine Ham | October 27, 2006

This election cycle has sounded like a sicko version of that old Dr. Pepper ad. So many people are racists, it’s hard to keep up!

Brent Bozell | October 27, 2006

Within a few short weeks of signing the consent decree, CBS blatantly violated the consent decree by boldly re-airing one of the programs that had been protested.

Jonah Goldberg | October 27, 2006

The media have already started "pre-celebrating" the Democratic victory they expect Nov. 7. In the same spirit, let me offer a "pre-bunking" of the liberal gloating should the Democrats win big.

David Limbaugh | October 27, 2006

Iraq is a stumbling block for Democrats. They tend to view every foreign policy issue through their self-stained Iraq lens.

Mona Charen | October 27, 2006

I can understand why Democrats are jazzed about November's election. What I don't understand is the seeming tepidness of so many Republicans.

Oliver North | October 27, 2006

Having now spent nearly as much time in Iraq as I did on my first "tour" of Vietnam in 1968-69, it's readily apparent that the parallels between the two wars are practically non-existent on the battlefield.

Pat Buchanan | October 27, 2006

When judges in New Jersey can order legislators to write new laws that conform to their ideology, laws the people have not only not demanded, but viscerally and violently oppose, we have ceased to be a free country or a democratic republic.

Matt Towery | October 27, 2006

Regardless, if and when the Republican Party again controls both the presidency and the Congress -- be it next year or next lifetime -- they'd do well to go to school and study the misspent days of 2005-2006.

Diana West | October 27, 2006

No suspense this time. In these, the politics of personal distraction, what Pelosi wants you to know are not her far-left views on immigration, national defense, homosexual marriage, etc.

Paul Greenberg | October 27, 2006

I remembered those words on being told of the risk I was running in accusing Mr. bin Laden of this crime without proper documentation.

Kathleen Parker | October 27, 2006

And what does "not losing" mean? According to Bush, it means not leaving. Which no one wants to hear, but there it is.

Charles Krauthammer | October 27, 2006

When just a week ago Barack Obama showed a bit of ankle and declared the mere possibility of his running for the presidency, the chattering classes swooned.

Rich Tucker | October 27, 2006

If you doubt our ability to over-react, just recall the havoc caused by two idiots with a rifle in 2002.

Mike Gallagher | October 27, 2006

That pretty much sums up what liberals think about us, right? We’re just a bunch of mean-spirited jerks that have no compassion, no sympathy; no understanding of what it means to suffer physical adversity or personal tragedy.

Rebecca Hagelin | October 27, 2006

Thanks to slickly produced TV shows, magazines, movies and Web sites, your teenager is definitely hearing from the side that spurns traditional morality.

Thu, Oct 26, 2006

David Strom | October 26, 2006

There’s a lot of concern these days about American competitiveness in the world economy these days, much of which is simply nonsense.

Victor Davis Hanson | October 26, 2006

The most frightening aspect of the present war is how easily our pre-modern enemies from the Middle East have brought a stunned postmodern world back into the Dark Ages.

Hugh Hewitt | October 26, 2006

Andrew Sullivan may be the biggest wasted talent in all of the English speaking world.

Larry Elder | October 26, 2006

Dear Mr. Rooney, You ask, in your recent "60 Minutes" commentary, for the president to finally flat-out "explain" why we have troops in Iraq. While busy preparing your commentaries, you perhaps failed to hear the president explain this -- over and over and over again.

Cal Thomas | October 26, 2006

"Terrorism is growing," Rumsfeld said then. "In the 30 days ending last week, it is estimated that there were 37 terrorist attacks, by 13 different organizations, against the property or citizens of 20 different countries."

Suzanne Fields | October 26, 2006

Evangelical Christians are routinely scapegoated with impunity, as if they're troglodyte know-nothings unified in a cabal to promote ignorance.

Donald Lambro | October 26, 2006

After millions of dollars in ads, polls and six-figure consultants, the 2006 elections could turn on one final, frantic, door-to-door battle: Who wins the get-out-the-vote game.

Robert Novak | October 26, 2006

Democratic candidate Ken Lucas looked like he would rather be any place other than Kentucky's public television studios Monday night as he debated freshman Republican Rep. Geoff Davis.

Paul Weyrich | October 26, 2006

Congress finally started to address this pressing matter of national security shortly before adjourning. The Secure Fence Act of 2006, which calls for the construction of a 700-mile fence along the Mexican Border, represents an important step in that effort.

William Rusher | October 26, 2006

The nation's intellectual leadership may remain safely non-religious, while the masses are indulging in an orgy of religiosity. But the most casual reading of recent political history suggests a somewhat different interpretation.

James J. Kilpatrick | October 26, 2006

Verily, verily, remarked the Preacher, of the bringing of First Amendment cases there shall be no end. The venerable Ecclesiastes thus provided a text for an important case now pending in the Supreme Court on a petition for review.

Marvin Olasky | October 26, 2006

Should the bad news about our current political campaign, which features confused Republicans floundering and out-to-sea Democrats foundering, lead evangelicals to give up on politics?

Ross Mackenzie | October 26, 2006

Samplings from a potpourri of topics currently in the news . . .

Roger Schlesinger | October 26, 2006

Let me start this article by saying that there isn't a doubt in my mind that we are the good guys, wearing the white hats, and they are the scoundrels, aka the "bad guys".

Alan Reynolds | October 26, 2006

The newspapers are suddenly full of hypothetical plans to sextuple the federal gasoline tax, with well-timed insinuations that this might be a post-election Republican ploy.

Wed, Oct 25, 2006

Ann Coulter | October 25, 2006

If Bush had gone to war with Iraq immediately after 9/11 and waited to attack Afghanistan, Democrats would now be pretending to support the Iraq war while pointlessly carping about Afghanistan.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | October 25, 2006

President George Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have succeeded beyond expectations in lining up China as a strong ally in forcing North Korea to abandon its nuclear ambitions.

Chuck Colson | October 25, 2006

According to a recent Los Angeles Times article, Russia “has lost the equivalent of a city of 700,000 people every year since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.” We’re talking about the population of San Francisco or Baltimore—a grim reminder of how fruitless some worldviews can be.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | October 25, 2006

For the last few years, I have had a mental image of many of our popular black leaders shuffling into smoke-filled back rooms and receiving “twenty pieces of silver” in exchange for the black community’s vote.

Rich Galen | October 25, 2006

Time will tell whether Barak Obama will be a Jack Kennedy, a Ted Kennedy, or someone else. What we do know is that most people can not withstand the withering scrutiny in the spotlight of a Presidential campaign.

Michelle Malkin | October 25, 2006

Two short weeks to Election Day. As one of those post-9/11 security moms, it all comes down to a simple question for me: Who will keep this country -- and my children -- safer from harm?

John Stossel | October 25, 2006

According to the new "ABC News" poll on health care, Americans are eager to have the government force employers to provide heath insurance: "Nearly eight in 10 favor a federal requirement that all employers offer insurance to their full-time workers."

Walter E. Williams | October 25, 2006

There are only a handful of products that Americans import that cannot be produced at home and therefore create jobs for Americans. Let's look at a few of them.

Brent Bozell | October 25, 2006

Our news media have long lectured us that their role is not to be "stenographers to power." Theirs is the pursuit of truth, we are told.

Tony Blankley | October 25, 2006

Last week's column urging conservatives to vote in November ("No Thanks, We're Stupid") brought forth a cataract of e-mails. Initially they ran about 6-1 disagreeing with me.

Cal Thomas | October 25, 2006

Huntley and Brinkley flourished during broadcast journalism's Camelot. For younger journalists, like me, who knew them and were inspired by them, we not only miss these men; we miss what they represented.

Ben Shapiro | October 25, 2006

Democrats claim they have consistently lost elections over the past six years based on their inability to define a platform.

Terry Jeffrey | October 25, 2006

Billionaire George Soros and Sen. Hillary Clinton have been talking about the congressional elections as if they were a civics test for voters. They could almost be speaking from the same lecture notes.

Austin Bay | October 25, 2006

A Pentagon press lunch with the secretary of defense is a rare privilege, especially for a columnist from fly-over country.

Linda Chavez | October 25, 2006

Putting the Democrats in control won't bring about needed changes -- it will make matters even worse.

Paul Greenberg | October 25, 2006

Every time the stock market took a little dip, we'd reprint one of Paul Krugman's dour columns from the New York Jaundiced Times about the imminent doom of the American economy. Almost immediately the market would bounce back and then some. It worked every time.

Jacob Sullum | October 25, 2006

Contrary to early press reports, Congress has not banned online gambling.

Paul Weyrich | October 25, 2006

I want to make it clear that I have no idea if Representative Weldon has done anything wrong. If he has he needs to be punished. However, I am suspicious.

Kathleen Parker | October 25, 2006

When Marlette saw the planes hit the World Trade Center five years ago, he says his first association was to the "bitter, resentful, powerless religious fanatics of the American South" who waged war on the civil rights movement of his youth.

Michael Medved | October 25, 2006

For months, we’ve been hearing about the sour mood of U.S, conservatives, with left-leaning activists and liberal commentators savoring (and promoting) the possibility that many of their opponents on the right will express their frustration by abandoning the GOP on November 7th.

Tue, Oct 24, 2006

Jeff Emanuel | October 24, 2006

The Governor’s campaign must improve its efforts, as well as its mindset, if he is to succeed in his bid for reelection.

Maggie Gallagher | October 24, 2006

This week I'm speaking at a National Press Club event sponsored by the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association about the coming vote on state marriage amendments. Here's a sneak preview:

William F. Buckley | October 24, 2006

Everybody is predicting big gains for the Democrats in November. If they succeed in taking the House of Representatives, that means that Nancy Pelosi is in our future.

Roger Schlesinger | October 24, 2006

Almost on a daily basis I get asked about questions in my field, the mortgage and real estate industry, on how I would personally attack a certain situation.

Janice Shaw Crouse | October 24, 2006

While the left is waging guerilla warfare, the right is either reeling or poring over election maps for street-by-street voter outreach.

Jerry Newberry | October 24, 2006

You’ve listened to me beat the drum about how hard the Joes I’m embedded with have it over here. And they do. Some of the toughest conditions imaginable.

Mike Adams | October 24, 2006

It’s been awhile since I published some of my favorite hate mails in a column...

Thomas Sowell | October 24, 2006

Media pundits have just about given this year's election to the Democrats -- at least in the House of Representatives and perhaps in the Senate as well. They might even be right, for a change.

David Limbaugh | October 24, 2006

The real question facing voters in November is whether Democrats will be able to do to the entire legislative branch what they've done to their party.

Cal Thomas | October 24, 2006

It is a new CNN poll conducted by Opinion Research Corporation that found an overwhelming number of Americans (78 percent) believes "our system of government is broken."

Dennis Prager | October 24, 2006

What Patty Wetterling, Democratic congressional candidate in Minnesota's sixth district, just did is so wrong, so dishonest, so low even for the generally negative tone of political advertising, and so injurious to children, that I am breaking a lifelong silence on congressional races to beg Democrats and others in her district not to vote for her.

Pat Buchanan | October 24, 2006

With the failure of the Orange Revolution, Ukraine is being drawn back into Moscow's orbit. Now, Georgia, another former republic of the old Soviet Union, is finding that ex-colonies of the empire pay a price for becoming estranged from Mother Russia.

Paul Weyrich | October 24, 2006

So now some people in the White House and their allies are accusing conservatives of whining about the ensuing election.

William F. Buckley | October 24, 2006

There is a special snap to the Al Smith Dinner because it has for many years served as a required stop for anyone seeking to be president of the United States.

George Will | October 24, 2006

The NCAA aims to ``retain a clear line of demarcation between intercollegiate athletics and professional sports.'' But aside from not compensating the athletes in a way commensurate with the money they generate for the universities, how is that line clear?

Bruce Bartlett | October 24, 2006

By turning up the heat so high this time, I think Republicans risk sounding like the boy who cried wolf. This may make it harder to motivate their base in 2008.

Bill Murchison | October 24, 2006

Looks like Johnny just don't write so good no more: bad grammar, bad syntax and such like.

Lynn O'Shaughnessy | October 24, 2006

Many investors are blithely sitting on a portfolio of expensive funds because they don't know they're being gouged.

Mon, Oct 23, 2006

Rich Lowry | October 23, 2006

The problem for Bush is that in the current environment, his resolve has become a drag. People hear him say that he will stay in Iraq even if only Laura and Barney still support him, and they think it signals a stubborn unwillingness to adjust.

Herman Cain | October 23, 2006

The Chicken Littles in the Democratic Party, liberal media outlets and liberal political action groups are attempting to convince voters that the sky is falling on America’s economy, our national security and Republican candidates at the national and state levels.

Craig Shirley | October 23, 2006

"There's no crying in baseball!" With the midterm elections almost upon us, conservatives need to take that to heart. They won't win by quitting.

Kathryn Lopez | October 23, 2006

For the voters of the Keystone State, this is a gut check. It will have consequences far beyond 2006, and far beyond Pennsylvania.

Bill Bennett | October 23, 2006

As the depression following the Panic of 1873 deepened, President Grant came under extreme pressure to inflate the currency. Debtors, especially in the western states, cried out for relief from Washington.

Phyllis Schlafly | October 23, 2006

Will the Bush administration build a fence to secure the U.S.-Mexico border, or are we being bamboozled with sound and fury, signifying nothing?

Rich Galen | October 23, 2006

But, with the advent of computerization in the redistricting business, two incumbents might well get together and trade two houses on the north side of a street who vote Democrat, for two families on the south side of the same street who vote Republican.

Jerry Newberry | October 23, 2006

It's a classic infantryman's fight in the Korengal ... and it's definitely a shooting war here.

Cal Thomas | October 23, 2006

There has been much written about Disney, but Gabler’s “Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination” (Knopf) is the first to have the full cooperation of the Disney organization and family members. It shows.

Mike Adams | October 23, 2006

Until just recently, the UNCW administration was trying to deprive me of both a) my right to appeal their decision to deny my promotion to full professor and, b) my right to a written explanation of that decision.

Robert Novak | October 23, 2006

The latest in a series of October surprises leading up to the midterm elections targeted Ken Mehlman, chairman of the Republican National Committee.

Michael Barone | October 23, 2006

Some things -- a nuclear attack on the United States, the successful release of a disease pathogen that could kill millions -- are just too horrifying to think about. But maybe we should think more about them.

La Shawn Barber | October 23, 2006

I find it offensive that homosexuals equate black Americans’ struggle to be treated as first class citizens to their “struggle”

Phyllis Schlafly | October 23, 2006

Paraphrasing Shakespeare, To build, or not to build; that is the question. Will the Bush administration build a fence to secure the U.S.-Mexico border, or are we being bamboozled with sound and fury, signifying nothing?

Star Parker | October 23, 2006

Michigan is a troubled state these days. As the U.S. economy booms, the Michigan economy sputters. Unemployment standing at 7.1 percent is almost double the national rate.

Armstrong Williams | October 23, 2006

If we juxtapose public school coaches' expectations of black male players with public school teachers' expectations of black male students the difference is night and day.

Burt Prelutsky | October 23, 2006

As you may have noticed, Kim Jong-Il has the world’s leaders running around like headless chickens. Now that he’s taken advantage of both Clinton and Bush and has achieved nuclear capability

Sun, Oct 22, 2006

Steve Chapman | October 22, 2006

Economics was dubbed "the dismal science" because it is constantly at war with one of life's most pleasant occupations -- wishful thinking. Suggest a simple step to make people better off -- say, by freezing gasoline prices -- and economists will dourly explain why it will have unintended consequences that outweigh any benefit. They've also been known to visit kindergarten playgrounds and announce there is no Santa Claus.

Paul Jacob | October 22, 2006

The U.S. is down in economic rankings. Well, rank this.

Doug Giles | October 22, 2006

A minister has the responsibility of massive influence woven into his job. Instead of using it to fleece his sheep, to molest altar boys, or simply to dole out clichés like a drugged up Kathie Lee, why not re-align with the scripture and focus on fixing this mucked up culture?

Stephen Roberts | October 22, 2006

In his new book, Marvin Olasky analyzes what went right and wrong in the management of the Hurricane Katrina aftermath.

George Will | October 22, 2006

International crises rarely conform tidily to electoral cycles. Too bad. America's electoral cycles are constitutional facts: Every two years, elections take the nation's temperature; every four years, the nation selects the occupant of the office responsible for formulating foreign policy.

Ruben Navarrette Jr., | October 22, 2006

There are Americans who believe that this is still a country of unlimited opportunity for those who work hard and sacrifice. And there are others who are convinced that the deck is stacked against working men and women.

Kevin McCullough | October 22, 2006

Given the right circumstances, liberal feminists, activist lawyers, and judges who should be impeached for their lack of judgement - will first allow and then defend the cold-blooded shooting of an innocent child.
