Facing the wrath of labor unions, a new Democratic Congress, liberal state governors and city counsels, Wal-Mart’s CEO H. Lee Scott Jr. has a plan: sell more florescent light bulbs.
Resolving the Arab-Israeli conflict would be a wonderful thing. But the reality is that for more than a half century, every American president has attempted to find a magic formula that would bring peace to the tiny territories between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. And every American president has seen his efforts come a cropper.
Embryonic stem cell research is back on the congressional agenda, and once again the millions of Americans who reject this "research" are being ridiculed as heartless Neanderthals. There is every reason to believe that this debate will rage for decades as our country confronts new scientific advances that are fraught with ethical concerns.
President Gene Nichol recently decided to remove the cross from the Wren Chapel altar at William and Mary. It is but one reason why the incurably Christ-o-phobic administrator should be removed from his position at the prestigious institution of higher learning.
I have been married to a Marine Corps veteran for the past 15 years, and I am confident in saying that sympathy is not what those in the U.S. armed forces want. They want the support and the respect of those they risk life and limb to protect.
Historian Michael Beschloss hasn't become known as one of the country's leading presidential historians by accident. Since 1980 his eight books on U.S. presidents include the 2002 best-seller "The Conquerors: Roosevelt, Truman and the Destruction of Hitler's Germany, 1941-1945."
Last weekend, the Sunday Times of London reported that Israel is preparing a strike on the Iranian nuclear program at several bases scattered throughout the country. The paper claimed that the attack would be carried out with tactical nuclear "bunker busters" supplied by the United States.
The conflict unfolding in the Episcopal Church in Virginia typifies not only the bitter disputes plaguing Protestant denominations nationwide but also the mean ideological struggles in key sectors of the culture generally.
The president needed to connect with many audiences last night, and he did. The message for the enemy in Baghdad -- both Saddamist and Shia radical -- was that the United States will respond to their violence with lethal force, and will fully back the Iraqi Army in the pacification of Baghdad.
The most naive sentence in the English language is: It couldn't get any worse. That's an argument many who have protested the war give for getting out of Iraq -- that nothing could be worse than 3,000 U.S. troops killed as the Iraq insurgency has grown stronger.
In lieu of a gang rape perpetrated by high-stepping white male athletes against a poor black woman, the Duke lacrosse case has turned out to be another in a long string of hoax hate crimes in which whites are falsely accused.
House Democrats lost considerable credibility yesterday when their opening session was cancelled so that members could attend the Ohio State-Florida State football game.
His lifestyle was none of my business and actually none of anybody's business. The problem was he was just getting around to look into life insurance. He had an appointment the week after he died. Too late! He left a family destitute that could have been in decent shape.
If you’re nowhere near that $500,000 level where the Democrats say they’ll start punishing you, why should you care if Pelosi & Pals jack up the tax rates on the fortunate few who can afford to fund the rest of us?
Last month, Mark Earley told “BreakPoint” listeners and readers about a New York Times story on Prison Fellowship’s InnerChange Freedom Initiative®. He pointed out important facts that were missing from the story and concluded that the Times had not lived up to its motto, “All the news that’s fit to print.”
The debate over whether to surge an additional tens of thousands of American troops into Iraq has been raging for months now, and even before the president makes his address to the nation on the topic on Wednesday, House Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid have declared against any significant expansion of American ground forces in the strife-torn country.
While Berger's "punishment" was a pittance of a fine, former Pentagon analyst Larry Franklin has been financially ruined and sentenced to 12 and a half years for passing along far less-classified information to unauthorized third parties.
What is it Spider-Man says? With great power comes great responsibility -- or something on that exalted order, and something the Democrats will have to ponder in deciding how to talk about President Bush's plan for a military "surge" in Iraq.
I know Bush doesn't like to veto legislation. He had the excuse these past six years that he didn't want to go against a Republican Congress. Those days are over.
In the classic 1967 movie "The Graduate," Dustin Hoffman plays a young man with a new college degree but no clear vision of what he wants to do. A family friend insists on giving him career advice: "I just want to say one word to you. Just one word. . . . Plastics." Following the GOP loss of Congress, the Bush White house appears similarly fixated on just one phrase: "alternative energy."
For all practical purposes, Saddam was dead as soon as he was discovered by American troops hiding in the famous hole in his native village two years ago.
The liberals usually claim they want an "independent" judiciary, unbridled free speech, and tolerance for all points of view. Now they are trying to kill the messenger because they can't counter Dierker's copiously documented arguments.
I’m guessing that homosexual activists are applauding Wednesday’s ruling by a Canadian appeals court that a five-year-old boy has a legal right to two mommies and a daddy.
When most young men are turning seventeen, they are thinking about their upcoming senior year of high school, their sports career, or their choice of college. When Ross McGinnis, of Knox, PA, turned seventeen, he marched down to the recruiter’s office and joined the Army via the delayed enlistment program.
