Paul Driessen | June 28, 2008

Drilling is no silver bullet. But it is vital. It won’t generate overnight production. But just announcing that America is finally hunting oil again would send a powerful signal to energy markets.

Carl Horowitz | June 28, 2008

The most defining aspect of our daily national life, beyond the inevitable rah-rah of the presidential campaign, has been soaring crude oil prices, the most visible manifestation of which is $4 per gallon-plus prices at the retail gasoline pump.

Alice Walker, best known as the author of the novel The Color Purple, is one of the most renowned feminist authors and activists of her generation. She is also a mother, and that fact brought her public and private lives into direct conflict.

Roger Schlesinger | June 27, 2008

A famous literary figure once said, “One shoe can change your life.” Do you believe that?

John Hawkins | June 27, 2008

Once you've watched liberals long enough to understand how they think -- scratch that, how they feel -- they become extraordinarily predictable.

Brent Bozell | June 27, 2008

George Carlin made a lot of people laugh with his observational humor, and we're saddened by the loss. But the media appreciations of Carlin hail him for his daring in "crossing the line" of good taste.

Jonah Goldberg | June 27, 2008

The reasons for Congress' craptacular standing are too long to list here. But some culprits never get blamed, even though they are hiding in plain sight. Chief among them: the U.S. Supreme Court.

David Limbaugh | June 27, 2008

The Supreme Court's barring of the death penalty for child rapists in Kennedy v. Louisiana underscores the hazards in the court's abandonment of moral absolutes in favor of "evolving standards of decency."

Mona Charen | June 27, 2008

In the United States today we no longer enjoy the rule of law but instead the rule of lawyers -- robed lawyers with the exalted title "justice" -- but still unelected lawyers enacting their own policy preferences.

Oliver North | June 27, 2008

Our Fox News' "War Stories" team came here to the capital of the Lone Star State to work on a documentary about America's 36th president to coincide with the 100th anniversary of his birth Aug. 27.

Pat Buchanan | June 27, 2008

To start a third war in the Middle East against a nation three times as large as Iraq, and leave it to a new president to fight, would be a daylight hijacking of the congressional war power and a criminally irresponsible act.

Suzanne Fields | June 27, 2008

If you had met him, you might think he "had kicked himself loose of the earth" and "knew no restraint, no faith and no fear."

On the day after an unusually important Fed policy meeting, both gold and stocks severely rebuked the central bank's decision to take no action in support of the weak dollar or to curb rapidly growing inflation.

Kathleen Parker | June 27, 2008

It was such a good story: Teen girls make pregnancy pact. The media lapped up the story, with reporters descending on tiny Gloucester, Mass., from as far away as Brazil and Poland.

Thu, Jun 26, 2008

Richard H. Collins | June 26, 2008

In responding to criticisms Obama has developed a pattern: his policies spring from only the purist of motives and are, despite abundant appearances to the contrary, completely consistent with his previous statements.

Ross Mackenzie | June 26, 2008

The cost of running the family car is all over the news these days, and rightly so. But what about the cost of a college experience for Melissa and John?

Jumping right into a handful of primarily defense-related questions, I ask Dick Morris about the danger posed to our national security and the potential degradation of defense under a, God-help-us, president Obama.

Larry Elder | June 26, 2008

Hugh Hewitt | June 25, 2008

Nationally syndicated host and journalist Hugh Hewitt interviewed John McCain on June 24 as the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party travelled through southern California.

Thomas Sowell | June 25, 2008

Michelle Malkin | June 25, 2008

If you don't know what ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is all about, you better bone up.

John Stossel | June 25, 2008

Let me get this straight. A potential president of a putatively free country scolds companies for "obscene profits," failure to invest in competing products, and therefore irresponsible citizenship.

Walter E. Williams | June 25, 2008

I have no idea of the number of traffic signals in our country, but whatever the number, how many of my fellow Americans would like the U.S. Congress to be in charge of their operation?

Brent Bozell | June 25, 2008

Paul Greenberg | June 25, 2008

Mary Katharine Ham | June 25, 2008

Rock stars are the ultimate individualists, right? Independent spirits with tortured souls and torn jeans, they buck the system, defy the norm, and bear up against the “The Man.”

Jacob Sullum | June 25, 2008

In asking Congress to allow warrantless surveillance of Americans' international communications, President Bush is seeking permission to do something he believes he does not need permission to do.

Tue, Jun 24, 2008

John Andrews | June 24, 2008

The Old World is just that, old. Coloradans pride themselves on a State Capitol from the century before last. Our nephew in Bristol showed us a cathedral from the millennium before last.

Armstrong Williams | June 24, 2008

George Will | June 22, 2008

Listening to political talk requires a third ear that hears what is not said. Today's near silence about crime probably is evidence of social improvement.

Salena Zito | June 22, 2008

Five years, one failed presidential campaign, one party chairmanship and one very huge win over the GOP in the 2006 midterm elections later, Dean stands on the precipice of delivering the presidency to Democrats.

Nina May | June 22, 2008

Hey JC, Armstrong, and others who are being seduced by pigment; if young women, 20 years ago, could resist the feminist seduction of Gloria, Phil and Geraldine, then surely, you can resist the siren’s call to socialism.
