Herewith is my last installment on why I believe the church is culpable for our cultural corruption and my top ten raucous remedies to help the church with its mad cow disease.

Brent Bozell | June 14, 2008

It's axiomatic that people who've disgraced themselves are the last to realize it, or maybe the first to pretend they don't know. Take longtime CBS anchorman Dan Rather.

Michael Barone | June 14, 2008

Barack Obama has long said that his campaign will not accept contributions from lobbyists, and now that he is the presumptive nominee, the Democratic National Committee won't accept them, either.

Robert Novak | June 14, 2008

Before multimillionaire Democratic power broker James A. Johnson quit as Sen. Barack Obama's chief vice presidential screener, the name that came to the fore in his internal discussions was 65-year-old, six-term Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware.

Marvin Olasky | June 14, 2008

Support for a moderate pro-life measure would give Barack Obama a big electoral boost.

Tom Borelli | June 14, 2008

I was watching television the other night, and someone was interviewing people on the street about the presidential election.

Kathryn Lopez | June 13, 2008

Rich Tucker | June 13, 2008

What a relief to see the sign at the Subway restaurant: “We have tomatoes, approved by the FDA.” In the event, I didn’t want tomato on my sandwich, but it’s good to know the government is looking out for me.

Paul Weyrich | June 13, 2008

Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-NV) pulled down the Warner-Lieberman Global Warming Bill as Republicans filibustered and there were too few Democrats voting for cloture to require an up-or-down vote.

Diana West | June 13, 2008

On Sept. 11, 2001, Andrew Bostom, an academic research physician at Rhode Island Hospital, did what many outraged and shocked Americans did. On his way home from work, he stopped at a bookstore and bought a book about Islam.

Bobby Schindler | June 13, 2008

Recently, yet another situation similar to that of my sister Terri Schiavo has made headlines. In West Palm Beach, Florida, Raymond Weber is asking the court to dehydrate his disabled wife, Karen, to death.

Fred Thompson | June 13, 2008

It is truly stunning that this court has seen fit to arrogate unto itself a role in the most important issue facing any country, self-defense, in a case in which Congress has in fact repeatedly acted.

John McCaslin | June 13, 2008

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein remains "amazed" by all the public intrigue surrounding the secret meeting held in her Washington residence last week between Democratic Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and onetime rival Barack Obama.

John Hawkins | June 13, 2008

In recent years, liberals have mastered the art of lying. A lefty blog writes a story, then two dozen other blogs pick-up.

Jonah Goldberg | June 13, 2008

Sen. John McCain said this week he would not drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for the same reason he "would not drill in the Grand Canyon ... I believe this area should be kept pristine."

Mona Charen | June 13, 2008

Well, well, well. Look who's censoring the Internet. It's Andrew Cuomo, attorney general of the Empire State.

Ken Blackwell | June 13, 2008

Few realize that two aspects of California’s same-sex marriages are unlike Massachusetts’, and could redefine marriage in every state.

Mike Rogers | June 13, 2008

No matter how hard some may try, you can never talk a problem to death. Solving problems means taking action.

Oliver North | June 13, 2008

Just about everyone in America knows that Sunday, June 15, is Father's Day. The day for dads has been celebrated on the third Sunday of June since 1966, when President Lyndon Johnson decreed it to be so.

Pat Buchanan | June 13, 2008

Victor Davis Hanson, the court historian of the neoconservatives, charges me with "rewriting ... facts" and showing "ingratitude" to American and British soldiers who fought World Wars I and II.

Michael Gerson | June 13, 2008

I admit that some elements of the organic worldview make me uncomfortable -- its occasionally pharisaical intensity, the endless lists of symbolic and impractical "steps I can take to save the planet."

Suzanne Fields | June 13, 2008

An American won't easily recognize politics at home as seen from Europe. Even our British cousins often look through a glass, darkly.

Debra J. Saunders | June 13, 2008

When the GOP Congress passed and President Bush signed the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005, supporters hailed the measure as a victory for "personal responsibility."

Linda Chavez | June 13, 2008

It wasn't exactly the news the Obama campaign hoped to make this week: "Obama Aide Quits Under Fire for His Business Ties."

Paul Greenberg | June 13, 2008

In the event you haven't noticed, it's a presidential election year. You can tell by the ever-growing flurry of conspiracy theories.

Donald Lambro | June 13, 2008

There's no way to put this politely. Raising taxes on U.S. oil companies and calling it an energy plan is just about the dumbest idea the Democrats have come up with yet.

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown | June 13, 2008

What word does Barack Obama and his supporters keep chanting? "Change!" Like a drumbeat, Obama's chant for change runs nonstop in an endless loop.

Lorie Byrd | June 13, 2008

Recently a reader emailed me the following question, “When the media will print nothing positive for the President, how do we get the message out?”

Burt Prelutsky | June 13, 2008

To begin with, there are those two billion foreigners in places like China, Russia, North Korea and all the various Islamic nations that give America and much of the rest of the world non-stop migraines.

Joel Mowbray | June 13, 2008

In what might have been his most hawkish speech to date on the Middle East, Barack Obama sought to shore up his shaky support in the Jewish community with a security-first, diplomacy-second blueprint.

Charles Krauthammer | June 13, 2008

We know Obama hasn't been to Iraq in more than two years, but does he not read the papers? Does he not know anything about developments on the ground?

Richard H. Collins | June 13, 2008

Barack Obama may be the political equivalent of a rock star with his huge crowds and his celebrity endorsements, but his economic policies are simply the warmed over liberalism of the sixties and seventies.

Thu, Jun 12, 2008

Hugh Hewitt | June 12, 2008

Thursday's 5-4 decision awarding "unlawful combatants" at Gitmo --terrorists-- the "privilege of the writ of habeas corpus" has left millions of Americans stunned.

Michael Reagan | June 12, 2008

The last thing America needs is another four years of listening to a president mumble. I don't care how great the man is otherwise.

Rich Lowry | June 12, 2008

The price of everything, not just driving, is going up in the era of $130-a-barrel oil, but our presidential candidates have a hopelessly thumbless grasp of pocketbook politics.

Bill Clinton's selection of Al Gore changed forever the calculus presidential candidates need to use in choosing their running mates.

Matt Purple | June 12, 2008

Senator Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) gave a grim assessment of the Bush administration Thursday and said the problems facing America today are “far deeper and wider and worse than what FDR faced.”

Video testimony from a Florida hospital administrator about the millions of tax dollars spent providing health care for illegal aliens is spreading like wildfire on the internet.

Sandy Rios | June 12, 2008

As thousands swoon at Barack Obama's rallies, I have watched with agitation and concern.

Ross Mackenzie | June 12, 2008

Who's going to win the election? Good question — and some updated thoughts on veep choices. But first a reminder that 15 months ago this space predicted a McCain-Clinton race, and got things half right.

John McCaslin | June 12, 2008

Elected officers of the DNC have together officially endorsed Sen. Barack Obama to be the next commander in chief.

Paul Weyrich | June 12, 2008

Barack Obama's presidential campaign plans to strike at the heart of the Republican base by attempting to woo Evangelical Christians and Roman Catholics to his side.

Terry Jeffrey | June 12, 2008

No device is more in keeping with the American spirit than the automobile.

Matt Towery | June 12, 2008

Does any of this sound familiar? A Democratic presidential nomination is essentially taken away from a candidate because of a fight over delegates' credentials at a national nominating convention.

Donald Lambro | June 12, 2008

Sen. John McCain faces not one but two opponents in this election: freshman Sen. Barack Obama and the U.S. economy.

Rebecca Hagelin | June 12, 2008

Ask 10 people to define capitalism. Chances are, eight or nine will stress the importance of buying things.

Roy Innis | June 12, 2008

Our abundant oil and gas would keep money, jobs and opportunities here in the United States. We can no longer afford Jim Crow energy policies that penalize poor and minority citizens.

George Will | June 12, 2008

Presidential politics, like football, chess and other rule-bound competitions, is simple in objective but complex in execution. The objective is 270 electoral votes. This year the execution will turn on numbers.

Robert Novak | June 12, 2008

Sen. Arlen Specter, at age 78 suffering from cancer, was feeling miserable Monday following chemotherapy the previous Friday.

Matt Purple | June 11, 2008

Several high-profile conservatives gathered on Capitol Hill to rally support for the Broadcaster Freedom Act, a measure to block the government from any future attempts to chill political speech on the airwaves.

Robert Knight | June 11, 2008

Usually, when a journalist is censored in a Western nation, American news organizations respond with collective outrage.

President Reagan liked to say, "There are no easy answers, but there are simple ones." This principle applies to America's energy woes.

John McCaslin | June 11, 2008

A well-known collector of virtually every form of memorabilia, Frank Luntz also shows off his latest acquisitions to his VIP guests.

Paul Weyrich | June 11, 2008

I have obtained a document prepared for the Department of Homeland Security, which is not posted on the DHS website.

Michelle Malkin | June 11, 2008

If you're going to promise "new politics," it would probably be wise to eschew the same old Beltway cronies and insiders who have served presidential nominees of yore.

John Stossel | June 11, 2008

Congress is spending us into a hole. We hear about the cost of earmarks and the Iraq war. But what about "entitlements"?

Walter E. Williams | June 11, 2008

Let's do a thought experiment asking whether Americans are for or against slavery. You might say, "What are you talking about, Williams? We fought a war that cost over 600,000 lives to end slavery!"

Brent Bozell | June 11, 2008

The final nail was placed in the coffin when feminists tried so athletically to see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil with Bill Clinton's record of serial adultery, sexual harassment and even a credible accusation of rape.

Tony Blankley | June 11, 2008

How would one sneak a left-wing radical into the Oval Office in broad daylight? Perhaps the same way that President George W. Bush got two strong conservatives on the Supreme Court.

Michael Medved | June 11, 2008

The morning after he secured the Democratic nomination, Senator Obama appeared before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and made a surprisingly strong statement about the future of Jerusalem.

Ben Shapiro | June 11, 2008

If Thracy is a man, then so is Rosie O'Donnell. Thracy has two X chromosomes, a fully functioning set of female genitalia, and a uterus -- and a voice higher than Alvin the Chipmunk's.

Austin Bay | June 11, 2008

The classic World War II-era poster reminded talkative dock workers that "loose lips sink ships." Well, loose nukes present an even more imposing problem, one with continent-cracking possibilities.

Paul Greenberg | June 11, 2008

Bill Clinton has it about right. The story about him in Vanity Fair by Todd S. Purdum is indeed full of gossip, general cattiness and fashionable disdain.

Jacob Sullum | June 11, 2008

For years I've argued that a bill authorizing the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to regulate tobacco products is bad for consumers.

Maggie Gallagher | June 11, 2008

Every member of the 34 state OAS holds veto power, providing St. Kitts & Nevis with less than 40 thousand citizens an equal voice with all other nations in the region. It also assures nothing more than the most tepid resolutions

Brian Fitzpatrick | June 10, 2008

Unlike the big newspapers and TV networks, small conservative online news sites are reporting the growing threat posed to religious liberty by the burgeoning homosexual rights movement.

Jonah Goldberg | June 10, 2008

Al Gore claims that "good enough for government work" once implied that such work met the highest standards of excellence. Maybe.

Most aspiring presidents and prime ministers face a myriad of challenges as they embark on their journey. Issue controversies, questions about ethics or past conduct, wounds within the party all raise their heads and confront the candidate.

Bill Steigerwald | June 10, 2008

As any recent television viewer can attest, the American Petroleum Institute - the main lobbying group for the oil industry - has launched a huge ad campaign designed to tell Big Oil's side of the $4-a-gallon gasoline story.

David Limbaugh | June 10, 2008

Sen. McCain could be making a fatal strategic blunder in thinking he can cobble together a winning coalition in November via the unorthodox route (for a Republican) of courting moderates and jilting the conservative base, including Christian conservatives.

Cal Thomas | June 10, 2008

Listening to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton repeat stories they claim to have been told by the poor and the unemployed is enough to make one think we are living in a Third World dictatorship.

Dennis Prager | June 10, 2008

The day the O.J. Simpson verdict was announced, I said to my then-teenage son, "David, please forgive me. I am handing over to you a worse America than my father handed over to me."

Paul Weyrich | June 10, 2008

As I have mentioned before, riders much prefer rail to buses when given a choice. If the object of transit is to get drivers to leave their cars at home, then rail is by far the better way to go.

Larry Kudlow | June 09, 2008

The recent spike in oil prices and unemployment is dramatically changing this presidential campaign -- virtually overnight.

Hillary’s suspension of her campaign, and her omission of any release of her delegates, makes her a factor for Obama to consider for the next three months until the Democratic nomination is officially and finally his.

Cliff Kincaid called a press conference in Washington to challenge the mainstream media to look into the hard-core left-wingers who are known to have influenced Barack Obama.

When Defense Secretary Robert Gates summarily fired the top civilian and military Air Force officials last week, the reason he gave was a grave failure of leadership with respect to that service’s nuclear missions.

Matt Barber | June 09, 2008

As one of those pop-cultural non-conformist types, please indulge me while I go ahead and toss that stifling, mind-numbing muzzle called political correctness.

Douglas MacKinnon | June 09, 2008

Back in 1996, President Bill Clinton's re-election campaign spot-welded the highly unpopular Newt Gingrich to Mr. Clinton's Republican challenger, Sen. Bob Dole.

Well, it is official. You won. We lost. Same sex marriage is the law in California.

Debra J. Saunders | June 09, 2008

Let me say this for Our Betters in Europe: Not only do they pay obscenely high gasoline taxes, and hence prices at the pump, but also, at least until recently, they've seemed happy to do so.

Paul Greenberg | June 09, 2008

Barack Obama chose St. Paul, Minn., to stage his victory or at least near-victory rally Tuesday night.

Fred Thompson | June 08, 2008

Paul Jacob | June 08, 2008

It is easy to keep a tight lid on the people if you ignore their rights . . . and the Supreme Court.
