Doug Giles | September 15, 2007

Just with these hunts alone, I will put into circulation mucho money which will go to conservation, not to mention that my friends and I will feed hundreds of needy people low fat, high protein yummy meat.

Jonah Goldberg | September 15, 2007

During her questioning of Gen. David Petraeus this week, Sen. Hillary Clinton said to the general, "You have been made the de facto spokesmen for what many of us believe to be a failed policy. Despite what I view as your rather extraordinary efforts in your testimony ... I think that the reports that you provide to us really require the willing suspension of disbelief."

Diana West | September 15, 2007

The story of the week wasn't Gen. David Petraeus' testimony on Iraq, although it dominated the headlines. The story of the week wasn't the sixth return of Sept. 11 since the jihad atrocity of 2001, although it inspired many public statements and ceremonies. The week's biggest story garnered little press and few comments. But, in a significant way, this overlooked story -- an outrageous display of police force in Brussels on Sept. 11, 2007 -- symbolizes the missing link in our flawed comprehension of both Iraq and Sept. 11.

Paul Greenberg | September 15, 2007

Another September 11th has come and gone, and another American general, God help him, is trying to fight a war despite a deeply divided home front. For the country has grown weary of this war. Weary, confused and divided.

Robert Novak | September 15, 2007

Democratic insiders blame Sen. Hillary Clinton's micromanaging for her presidential campaign's acceptance of nearly $900,000 in contributions donated or raised by Norman Hsu, convicted for fraud and a former fugitive.

Patrick Ruffini | September 15, 2007

Imagine a patient who upon hearing a potentially life-threatening diagnosis embarks on a spate of binge drinking and chain smoking. That should give you a pretty good idea of what it was like to be a Virginia Republican this past week.

John Andrews | September 15, 2007

Victory Memo for the Candidate: Sir, as a Republican seeking the presidency, you obviously would never consider a plan that risks losing the war in Iraq or the wider war against radical Islam, in pursuit of winning the 2008 election.

Robert Murphy | September 15, 2007

If someone wants to bash corporations and the "excesses" of raw capitalism, there's no easier target nowadays than CEO pay. Recently critics were in a tizzy over a report claiming that CEOs make 364 times what the average worker earns.

Larry Kudlow | September 14, 2007

Might the current financial turmoil throttle back growth a little more in the next six months? Yes, perhaps. Will there be some negative earnings surprises, especially from financial companies? Sure.

Robert Knight | September 14, 2007

Surely the outrageous behavior by the Rutgers fans should have elicited a national reaction and comparison to the Imus sacking, but the media’s collective yawn told the public: No big deal.

Rich Tucker | September 14, 2007

This is a good time to be a political junkie. Until recent years, it was often difficult to make one’s political opinions known. After all, only a handful of people owned printing presses or broadcast towers. Everybody else was reduced to raving on street corners.

John McCaslin | September 14, 2007

We've written lately about the great lengths the White House has to go to in order to maintain secrecy surrounding President Bush's unscheduled visits to Iraq — an item that brought "a smile" to the face of one William C. Grayson, who practically compromised a similar surprise presidential visit 40 years ago.

Ashley Herzog | September 14, 2007

It looks as if the media will have to find another pretentious intellectual to refer to as “the conscience of the American theater” (according to The Boston Globe), “the moralist of the American theater” (The New York Times), and, most gratuitously, “the moralist of the past American century” (The Denver Post). In fact, given their track record, elitist intellectuals should probably refrain from using the word “moralist” altogether.

Salena Zito | September 14, 2007

Giuliani is clearly exercising a strategic move to define himself as the Republican front-runner who hopes to cinch the nomination before his GOP rivals gain steam.

Michael Gerson | September 14, 2007

In the spring of 2004, the inspector general of the Justice Department issued a report warning of radical Islamist influence in American prisons. It concluded that many prison libraries had not been screened for extremist literature. In what passes for governmental urgency, the federal Bureau of Prisons recently revealed its response: the Standardized Chapel Library Project. In consultation with outside experts, the New York Times reported this week, the bureau has produced lists of up to 150 noncontroversial books for each of the major religions, then banned anything from prison libraries that didn't make the cut.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | September 14, 2007

Democrats may hold up to 57 U.S. Senate seats after the 2008 election - almost enough to block a Republican filibuster and likely enough to assure passage of most of the Democratic program.

Burt Prelutsky | September 14, 2007

Lately, I've been reading even more books than usual about a period that's always fascinated me; namely, the late 40s and early 50s, the time of the Hollywood blacklist.

John Hawkins | September 14, 2007

Other than the 9/11 conspiracy theory, the most popular conspiracy theory these days seems to be the North American Union.

Brent Bozell | September 14, 2007

The funny thing is that for someone who doesn't like religious phonies, Griffin is the biggest phony of them all.

Mike Adams | September 14, 2007

On September 11, 2007, I was sitting around minding my own business and quietly remembering the thousands who lost their lives six years earlier. It was a nice, peaceful morning until I received an email from someone claiming to be Professor Julio Pino of Kent State University. Pino is a Muslim extremist who advocates the mass murder of Jews while drawing a paycheck from the hard-working people of the great state of Ohio.

David Limbaugh | September 14, 2007

I am constantly amazed that in the ongoing debate over the Iraq War the central question that ought to drive our decision is seldom considered.

Oliver North | September 14, 2007

Any objective observer who watched or read this weeks House and Senate testimony of Gen. David Petraeus received an informative assessment of the battlefield situation in Mesopotamia.

Debra J. Saunders | September 14, 2007

For years, supporters of global warming alarmism have repeated an odd refrain: Even if we're wrong, we're right.

Linda Chavez | September 14, 2007

Wars require sacrifice, and we have become a nation unaccustomed to adversity. Our leaders have asked most of us to give up precious little to support the war effort.

Joel Mowbray | September 14, 2007

The tidy Western view of Palestinian politics coming down to Islamists versus secularists faces yet another reality check. Both Hamas and the supposedly secular Fatah are engaging in a new propaganda war, each portraying itself as the defender of the faith, while accusing the other party of defiling Islam, according to a recent report from the Palestinian Media Watch.

Bill Steigerwald | September 14, 2007

Can any wealthy, modern country get health care right without resorting to socialism? Yes.

Jon Sanders | September 14, 2007

The city of Washington, D.C., wants the Supreme Court to reverse an appeals court's decision to overturn its ban on private ownership of handguns. That pesky Second Amendment is involved. It's too bad D.C. doesn't approach the problem of its citizens being harmed by gun violence the way it does the problem of citizens being harmed by contracting HIV.

Kathleen Parker | September 14, 2007

Reflecting on Gen. David H. Petraeus' report and surrounding carnival, it's little wonder the natives are restless -- popping off in angry ads, firing personal invectives and, as regards Congress, surpassing even the low expectations of cynics.

Mike Gallagher | September 14, 2007

Day after day, we scratch our heads and complain about President Bush’s apparent soft spot for people who have achieved their goal in life, to become residents of the United States by illegal entry.

Mona Charen | September 14, 2007

Rosh Hashanah is nothing like the secular New Year. It isn't about revelry (though we do dip liberally into the apples and honey); it's about repentance.

Pat Buchanan | September 14, 2007

When President Bush turns over the presidency on Jan. 20, 2009, there will likely be as many U.S. troops in Iraq as there were when Congress was elected to bring them home in November 2006.

Robert Novak | September 13, 2007

Almost immediately after the launch of Fred Thompson's long anticipated presidential candidacy, important neutral Republicans decreed privately that it had crashed and burned on takeoff.

Ed Feulner | September 13, 2007

Good economic news, if it makes it into print at all, is usually buried behind the crossword puzzle, the comics and the horoscopes.

William F. Buckley | September 13, 2007

Not enough attention has been paid, on the Iraq question, to the factor of universal access to information. For many years, in many wars, news reporters could not get near the front-line scene. And where high politics were concerned and dictators held sway, newsmen -- and foreign diplomats -- not only were stymied, they were deliberately misled.

Amanda Carpenter | September 13, 2007

Emmy Award winner James Gandolfini produced a tribute to modern-day war heroes which airs this evening on HBO and is available online.

Michael Reagan | September 13, 2007

We buried my mother, Jane Wyman, today and as I stood at her grave the words of Abraham Lincoln came back to me: "All I am or ever hope to be I owe to my angel mother."

Rebecca Hagelin | September 13, 2007

Decent Americans across the country are so disgusted by a culture that doesn’t reflect their values, a society that trashes the family, and a government gone wild, that they often feel helpless and hopeless about the future of our nation. So I think they’ll join me in saying: Thank goodness for Laura Ingraham’s latest book, “Power to the People.”

Rich Lowry | September 13, 2007

Welcome to Washington, Gen. Petraeus. You had better get used to being called a liar.

Robert Murphy | September 13, 2007

If someone wants to bash corporations and the "excesses" of raw capitalism, there's no easier target nowadays than CEO pay. Recently critics were in a tizzy over a report claiming that CEOs make 364 times what the average worker earns.

Maggie Gallagher | September 13, 2007

Somewhere, some frat boy is howling with glee. Petraeus, Betray Us, get it?

Cliff May | September 13, 2007

I suspect few readers will disagree when I say that not one of the presidential candidates, Republican or Democratic, has yet articulated a compelling campaign theme. All favor security. Not one opposes prosperity. Each promises to protect Social Security and improve health care. Voters can be forgiven if they are not overwhelmed.

John McCaslin | September 13, 2007

"General Petraeus won't say if the dying in Iraq will make America safer. Then what are we fighting for? What are the people dying for?" Questions not asked this week by a Democratic Party leader, but by MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews, who come to think of it is sounding more like a presidential candidate these days than the candidates themselves.

Hank Adler | September 13, 2007

For the second consecutive year, the California State Senate has passed a measure (SB 37), solely upon party lines, with Democrats voting yes, requiring California electoral delegates to cast their presidential votes for the national popular vote winner rather than for the presidential candidate who is victorious in California.

Larry Elder | September 13, 2007

According to Winfrey, she bases her support not on politics, but because Obama's candidacy sends a message of "hope."

Ken Blackwell | September 13, 2007

For many liberals and conservatives, the pivotal battleground this election season isn't Iowa, New Hampshire, or South Carolina. It's Utah. There, a fight over the state's universal K-12 school choice program portends to be the trip wire for the school choice movement across the country.

Cal Thomas | September 13, 2007

There is one person who is definitely not running, but may be invoked as the ultimate adviser. That would be God.

Suzanne Fields | September 13, 2007

A few days before the sixth anniversary of 9/11, a young man ranting in Arabic accosted a rabbi walking home from his synagogue in an upscale neighborhood of Frankfurt, and stabbed him.

Matt Towery | September 13, 2007

By a 43 percent to 36 percent margin, poll respondents said they'd be less likely to vote for the Republican nominee for president if a substantial number of troops "have not been withdrawn from Iraq by Election Day."

Donald Lambro | September 13, 2007

Republicans are having a field day in Michigan and Florida, accusing the Democrats' presidential front-runners of planning to boycott the states' early primaries next January.

Paul Weyrich | September 13, 2007

At last Fred D. Thompson is in the race. We shall soon learn whether Thompson lives up to expectations.

William Rusher | September 13, 2007

With former Sen. Fred Thompson's official declaration of his candidacy, the race for the Republican presidential nomination has now assumed the shape that seems likely to characterize it right down to the finish line.

George Will | September 13, 2007

Fred Thompson's plunge into the presidential pool -- more bellyflop than swan dive -- was the strangest product launch since that of New Coke in 1985.

Amanda Carpenter | September 13, 2007

Army General David H. Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan C. Crocker told Congress the President’s surge has started to make political reconciliation possible, but Democrat leadership is unwilling to give the Iraqi government more time and are intensifying calls for withdrawl.

Emmett Tyrrell | September 13, 2007

It has happened again. Last Monday (Sept. 10) at 6:40 p.m., just as the network news programs were getting under way, the Clinton presidential campaign released some disturbing news.

Marvin Olasky | September 13, 2007

Is international poverty best fought by distributing aid or by selling inexpensive products with names such as MoneyMaker?

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | September 12, 2007

In America, Hillary Clinton holds a solid and enduring 15- to 20-point lead over Barack Obama, who, in turn, enjoys a 2-to-1 advantage over John Edwards, who languishes in third place.

Ann Coulter | September 12, 2007

Democrats claim Gen. David Petraeus' report to Congress on the surge was a put-up job with a pre-ordained conclusion. As if their response wasn't.

Caroline Glick | September 12, 2007

General David Petreaus and US Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker's long-anticipated Congressional testimonies this week were edifying on two levels.

Hugh Hewitt | September 12, 2007

On the sixth anniversary of 9/11, Hugh Hewitt, host of the nationally syndicated “Hugh Hewitt Show,” interviewed Pulitzer Prize winning author of “The Looming Tower: al Qaeda and the Road to 9/11” Lawrence Wright about General Petraeus’s report on the Iraq war, the new bin Laden videotape and the global threat of al Qaeda.

Amanda Carpenter | September 12, 2007

Army General David H. Petraeus told a group of reporters: “Needless to say— and to state the obvious—I disagree with the message of those that were exercising the First Amendment right that generations of soldiers have sought to preserve for Americans. Some of it was just flat, completely wrong and the rest was at least more than arguable.”

John McCaslin | September 12, 2007

He's a Democratic congressman indicted on 16 federal counts of bribery. He was videotaped by the FBI accepting $100,000 from an investor wearing a wire. His home was raided by federal agents who discovered $90,000 wrapped in aluminum foil in the freezer. Most recently, his congressional office was searched.

Rich Galen | September 12, 2007

General David Petraeus, PhD testified before the appropriate House and Senate Foreign Affairs and Armed Services Committees over the past two days and, as expected by anyone who has ever been in the same room with him, bowled them over.

Michael Gerson | September 12, 2007

There is a long American tradition of savaging failed generals, from George McClellan to William Westmoreland. It is a more novel tactic to attack a successful one. Sen. Dick Durbin accuses Gen. David Petraeus of "carefully manipulating the statistics." Sen. Harry Reid contends, "He's made a number of statements over the years that have not proven to be factual." A newspaper ad by MoveOn.org includes the taunt: "General Petraeus or General Betray Us?" -- perhaps the first time since the third grade that this distinguished commander has been subjected to this level of wit.

Chuck Colson | September 12, 2007

Every time you turn around, a presidential candidate whips out his Bible—or a position paper—to let us know how faithful he or she is. Senator John Edwards (D-N.C.) says God "would be happy with the fact that" he's focused on people without health care. Senator Barack Obama (D-Ill.) says we should "discuss religion . . . in the positive sense of what it tells us about our obligations towards one another." Republicans, also, are quick to point out how faith informs their policies.

Tony Blankley | September 12, 2007

As we start the seventh year since the Sept. 11 attacks, many in the United States and other countries seem largely baffled and conflicted about the nature of the world in which we live.

Michelle Malkin | September 12, 2007

If only the State Department hadn't been so sloppy in issuing visas to the 9/11 hijackers. If only police and state troopers had been able to check the immigration status of the hijackers who were pulled over for speeding before the attacks. If only...

John Stossel | September 12, 2007

Cuba has great socialized medicine -- much better than the half-socialized system the United States has, according to Michael Moore and his documentary "Sicko."

Walter E. Williams | September 12, 2007

What does it say about blacks who can be taken in by pandering, alarmist nonsense from both whites and blacks as a means to get their votes?

Brent Bozell | September 12, 2007

As America headed into the weekend before the sixth anniversary of the horrific Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the latest purported video from Osama bin Laden reminded the country that the war on terrorism is still a real and persistent battle.

Jonah Goldberg | September 12, 2007

The Washington Post, Time magazine and the Associated Press are just a few of the news outlets that have asserted the U.S. is arming the Sunnis in Iraq.

Michael Medved | September 12, 2007

Six years after the most spectacular terrorist attack in human history, the Hollywood establishment still hasn’t come to terms with the event – and even managed to censor the most serious cinematic effort to place September 11th in a meaningful historical context.

Ben Shapiro | September 12, 2007

A century from now, 9/11 will be seen either as the death knell of a crumbling civilization or a rallying cry for a renewed, American-led movement for freedom.

Terry Jeffrey | September 12, 2007

Watching Gen. David Petraeus testify before Congress inspired several thoughts.

Austin Bay | September 12, 2007

"Are we fixed yet?" House Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton's question -- asked after Gen. David Petraeus' microphone failed to work -- is something of a metaphor both for Washington and Baghdad.

Jacob Sullum | September 12, 2007

Huckabee, who seems to agree the invasion was a mistake, urges us to save "the honor of this country" by trusting the same people who made this mess to clean it up.

Kathleen Parker | September 12, 2007

WASHINGTON -- On the sixth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Americans were treated to two starkly contrasting images that speak centuries of difference between the U.S. and its enemies.

Neal Boortz | September 11, 2007

Perhaps you’ve noticed lately – it sure hasn’t escaped our attention – that the FairTax proposal (H.R. 25) is really creating quite a stir lately.

Janice Shaw Crouse | September 11, 2007

In some respects, it is fair to say that our innocence was destroyed on 9/11, as surely as were the twin towers on lower Manhattan.

John McCaslin | September 11, 2007

As for the 50 most powerful Washingtonians, saluted in spirit if not in person at Cafe Milano, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is on the top of GQ's list, which includes the usual political suspects like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California. Interestingly enough, the late Ronald Reagan also is found on the list of the 50 most influential people, given the continued popularity of his guiding principles.

Amanda Carpenter | September 11, 2007

The top military commander in Iraq said he “did not know” if the President’s strategy in Iraq was making America safer in a Senate Armed Services hearing Tuesday.

John Leo | September 11, 2007

In 1997, the National Association of Social Work (NASW) altered its ethics code, ruling that all social workers must promote social justice "from local to global level." This call for mandatory advocacy raised the question: what kind of political action did the highly liberal field of social work have in mind? The answer wasn't long in coming.

Peter Suderman | September 11, 2007

When it comes to the economy, no one likes bad news—no one, that is, except for liberal politicians. Why? Because liberals rely on bad news to sell their policies of choice. In fact, their whole approach to the economy is almost entirely predicated on it.

Amanda Carpenter | September 11, 2007

The top military commander and senior U.S. diplomat in Iraq told members of the Senate that the President’s surge is implementing security conditions necessary for political reconciliation.

John R. Thomson | September 11, 2007

As Congress debates the merits of ratifying free-trade agreements with four countries, many arguments have been advanced from both sides. The politically charged climate on Capitol Hill obscures the underlying rationales favoring the treaties—and, broadly, free trade.

Matt Barber | September 11, 2007

Heard the one about the U.S. Senator who walked into the toilet with an undercover cop on perversion patrol? Of course you have. Everyone's heard it, but unfortunately, it's not just a bad bar room joke.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | September 11, 2007

There’s a new first in the 2008 presidential campaign. We’ve already seen the first woman candidate, Hillary Clinton and the first African American with widespread support and a serious chance at winning the presidency.

Thomas Sowell | September 11, 2007

Sometimes I feel as if I must be one of the few people left in America who is not a military expert.

Thomas Sowell | September 11, 2007

High-speed car chases by police on highways, or even on residential streets, have become a staple of television news. An estimated 500 people died as a result of high-speed car chases last year.

David Limbaugh | September 11, 2007

Has the left no remaining ounce of shame? Its latest target: the commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, General David Petraeus, whom Senate Democrats unanimously confirmed.

Cal Thomas | September 11, 2007

Looking like a Middle East version of a bad "Just for Men" beard dye commercial, OBL has resurfaced to deliver another rambling address to America.

Dennis Prager | September 11, 2007

No reader would be faulted for thinking that the title of this column is a spoof.

Lisa De Pasquale | September 11, 2007

Last week I wrote about students who are bucking the trend of today’s college campuses and speaking out as conservatives. After reading my column mentioning high school senior Toni Woods, her teacher asked her, “Why would anyone talk about a 16-year-old no-nothing?” Gee, I wonder why only graying hippies and bra-burners want to attend left-wing conferences?

Pat Buchanan | September 11, 2007

In November 2006, Republicans were voted out of power in the Congress and Democrats installed to bring an end to U.S. involvement in the war in Iraq. The war had been going on as long as America's war on Nazi Germany. No end was in sight. U.S. casualties and costs were rising. Bush's approval rating had sunk to record lows.

Kathryn Lopez | September 11, 2007

Marriage matters as a political issue, a fact we were starkly reminded of when an Iowa judge recently redefined marriage.

Bill Murchison | September 11, 2007

We're a pragmatic lot, we Americans. Or would cautious be the word? Those who prefer clarity in public policy often seem doomed -- with blessed exceptions like the Reagan tax cuts of 1981 -- to witness no end of philosophical hemming, hawing, stammering and foot-dragging.

George Will | September 11, 2007

WASHINGTON -- Before Gen. David Petraeus' report, and to give it a context of optimism, the president visited Iraq's Anbar province to underscore the success of the surge in making some hitherto anarchic areas less so. More significant, however, was the fact that the president did not visit Baghdad. This underscored the fact that the surge has failed, as measured by the president's and Petraeus' standards of success.

Bill Steigerwald | September 11, 2007

With presidential candidates of a certain hue decrying the suffering of the 37 million Americans who have been officially classified as poor by the U.S. Census Bureau, we thought we'd ask Rector if these poor people are really as poverty-stricken as we have been led to believe.

Michael Steele | September 11, 2007

I was asked recently what lesson should the GOP have learned from the results of the 2006 mid-term elections. That’s easy: You can’t please everyone, but you sure can make them all mad at you at the same time!

Nathan Tabor | September 11, 2007

Friendship is a true gift, whether it's between kindergartners on the playground or countries in the midst of political turmoil. Alliances between nations can be seen as friendship taken to the international level.

Phyllis Schlafly | September 10, 2007

It's now leaking out that there was more going on than met the eye at the Security and Prosperity Partnership Summit in Montebello, Canada, in August.

Tom Davis | September 10, 2007

On September 11, 2001, America changed in ways we still struggle to accept. The pain of loss may fade to a dull ache, but it never really goes away. And the rage triggered by senseless acts hardens into resolve to make sense of a world in which innocents die in the name of a perverse version of God.

Amanda Carpenter | September 10, 2007

The top military commander and senior U.S. diplomat to Iraq testified President Bush’s surge had been successful and troops could begin to be withdrawn on Monday afternoon.

Here's what Townhall.com readers were talking about during the week that was -- Sept. 2-8, 2007

John Boehner | September 10, 2007

On January 19 of this year, just days before President Bush delivered his State of the Union address, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) delivered what they dubbed as their own “address on the state of our union” at the National Press Club.

Mitch McConnell | September 10, 2007

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell delivered the following remarks on the Senate floor Monday regarding General David Petraeus’ report to Congress.

Amanda Carpenter | September 10, 2007

The anti-war lobby MoveOn.org published a full page ad in the New York Times accusing Army General David H. Petraeus of betrayal the day he was scheduled to testify to Congress about progress in Iraq.

Paul Greenberg | September 10, 2007

Can any aspect of the strange, sordid saga of Larry Craig offer the least satisfaction to any thinking observer of American politics and society?

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | September 10, 2007

The cost of this new lease on life was approximately $100,000 of unexpected personal costs beyond traditional medical costs. These numbers do not include personal income loss due to illness. Was it worth the price? You better believe it was. I am thankful to be alive.

Michael Barone | September 10, 2007

Islamist terrorists will continue to try to attack the United States and undermine if not destroy our free society. And Americans, for all the media's concentration on Iraq, seem aware of this -- and will be keeping it in mind as they decide on how to vote next year.

Suzanne Fields | September 10, 2007

George W. Bush, stopping in Iraq's Anbar province en route to Australia, vowed that any decision to bring American troops home from Iraq must be made from "strength and success, not fear and failure," but a new book describes the president as a "big crier," in private, not in public. Is this crying from strength?

Robert Novak | September 10, 2007

What only a handful of leaders and insiders realize is that this measure, avowedly dedicated to transparency, actually makes it easier for the Senate to pass pet projects without the public -- or many senators -- being aware of it.

Star Parker | September 10, 2007

Coverage by the mainstream media of the Larry Craig scandal confirms again that liberals love the sin and hate the sinner. They've got both the Idaho senator and the conservative values that he has supported in their crosshairs.

La Shawn Barber | September 10, 2007

When Ward Connerly – the engine behind state-to-state campaigns to end government-sanctioned racial discrimination – made a life-changing decision in the mid-1990s to raise the spirit of the true Civil Rights Movement, he must have known how his critics, even federal judges, would react. But he forged ahead.

Burt Prelutsky | September 10, 2007

Most people would include compassion on the short list of human virtues. At one point, I would have been one of those people. But, no longer is that the case. Like so many other things, it has taken on a far different meaning in recent times.

Dinesh D'Souza | September 10, 2007

As colleges start up again this week, there is big news from Boston College. The school has decided to censor my debate with its star professor Alan Wolfe.

Officers studying at the Army War College walk the ground at nearby Gettysburg where Pickett's men walked across an open field under fire.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | September 09, 2007

Visiting other people’s homes gives you a sense of who lives there. Houses, like pets, often reflect the characteristics of their owners. This holds true for presidents, who are both people and elected officials. President Bush reminded us of this recently with his statement that “I do tears.”

Salena Zito | September 09, 2007

(DURHAM, N.H.) On the morning of the first fall debate in this college town, students, residents and politicos awoke to a landscape transformed.

Paul Edwards | September 09, 2007

Paul Edwards, host of “The Paul Edwards Program” on WLQV in Detroit, interviewed longtime co-laborer with Dr. Kennedy and current President of the National Religious Broadcasters, Frank Wright.

Paul Jacob | September 09, 2007

The word "strike" is a funny word for not showing up to work. On both coasts, government makes us vulnerable to service disruption as well as making the services worse. Not funny at all.

Robert Bluey | September 09, 2007

No Child Left Behind has seen better days. Under attack from both the right and left, President Bush’s signature education achievement might not survive if some members of Congress get their way.
