Doug Giles | November 22, 2008

What if Christians demanded the following:

Michael Barone | November 22, 2008

We Americans are blessed with a history that teaches that things work out right. Our first president set the precedent of relinquishing power he could have had for life and returning to his farm.

Fri, Nov 21, 2008

Rich Tucker | November 21, 2008

Conservatives have always known how to solve our country’s traffic problem, and it’s surprisingly simple.

Janice Shaw Crouse | November 21, 2008

Not surprisingly, many voters who cast their ballots for Barack Obama for president had no idea what he believed, what his voting record was or what his priorities would be as president.

Kathryn Lopez | November 21, 2008

It was exactly one week until Thanksgiving as I watched the attorney general of the United States, Michael Mukasey, collapse a few feet away from me.

Paul Weyrich | November 21, 2008

Voters were busy approving in the November 4 elections various transit projects. Twenty-three ballot initiatives, or more than 70% of those up for a vote, were approved.

Matt Lewis | November 21, 2008

Much has been written lately regarding how the Republican Party might re-form itself into a winning operation. Of course, this debate has been around for a long time, but our recent losses have reignited the debate.

Rich Galen | November 21, 2008

Today we're going to discuss a pretend, made-up, invented, fabricated case which you, as senior-level Public Relations majors will have to fix. Are you up for this?

John Hawkins | November 21, 2008

Every time the GOP takes a beating at the ballot box there are calls to get rid of those doggone social conservatives.

Michelle Malkin | November 21, 2008

Congratulations, tolerance mau-mauers: Your shakedown of a Christian-targeted dating website worked. Homosexuals will no longer be denied the inalienable "right" to hook up with same-sex partners on eHarmony.

Brent Bozell | November 21, 2008

Both Time and Newsweek magazines are giggling at the Supreme Court oral arguments on the fleeting-TV-profanity case of FCC vs. Fox Television Stations.

Jonah Goldberg | November 21, 2008

In an attempt to dial down expectations for his administration, President-elect Barack Obama's supporters have dropped much of the "messiah" talk.

David Limbaugh | November 21, 2008

A good friend of mine (let's call him Bob) is convinced that unless the GOP puts abortion "aside as its focal point, it simply cannot win and regain power."

Mona Charen | November 21, 2008

Unlike some who shall, in the interests of comity, remain nameless -- conservatives do not cry foul when they lose elections. They do not whine that the election was stolen, or secured through dirty campaign tricks, or otherwise illegitimately won. Instead, they ask themselves where they went wrong.

Oliver North | November 21, 2008

Our Fox News' "War Stories" team is in the Eternal City making a documentary about World War II. From the headlines and news reports here, it seems as if European clocks stopped in 1992, when global media elites were giddy about the election of William Jefferson Blythe Clinton.

Pat Buchanan | November 21, 2008

To hear the media tell it, arrogant corporate chiefs failed to foresee the demand for small, fuel-efficient cars and made gas-guzzling road-hog SUVs no one wanted, while the clever, far-sighted Japanese, Germans and Koreans prepared and built for the future.

Michael Gerson | November 21, 2008

A war that once seemed likely to end in a panic of helicopters fleeing the American embassy now seems destined to conclude as the result of a parliamentary process.

Suzanne Fields | November 21, 2008

He's handsome and dresses with care, and he's what Joe Biden might call "clean and articulate." Women love him. He's the new beau ideal of the popular culture. But we're not talking about Barack Obama.

Linda Chavez | November 21, 2008

Republicans are finally worried that their failure to attract Hispanic voters in this year's election spells trouble -- perhaps for decades. But they're not sure what to do about it.

Rachel Marsden | November 21, 2008

Up until Barack Obama’s victory, much of America – and the rest of the world – was deeply in love with the idea of being in love.

Burt Prelutsky | November 21, 2008

I have no way of knowing whether the Republican party will go the way of the Whigs, the Bull Moose and the dodo bird.

Kathleen Parker | November 21, 2008

The Cold War that prompted the creation of Radio Free Europe may have ended. And The Wall did come tumbling down. But the voice of liberty still travels over the airwaves the old-fashioned way -- as well as by television.

Lorie Byrd | November 21, 2008

During the recent election season pundits talked constantly about how the deck was stacked against Republicans.

Mike Gallagher | November 21, 2008

In Tempe, Arizona, a beautiful young high school band member was killed by a drunk driving illegal immigrant

Times are bleak. Even a cursory peek at the economy tells us the world is about to go to holy hell.

Thu, Nov 20, 2008

Hugh Hewitt | November 20, 2008

The last thing you want to think about right now is the 2012 GOP primary calendar, but I am afraid you have to.

Crista Huff | November 20, 2008

Can we please be conservative now? The zoopolitical realm has never been so crowded.

Dan Kennedy | November 20, 2008

The news media have, for two weeks, endlessly expressed outrage at AIG’s spending. Portrayal of AIG conference as 'wine, women and song' shows ignorance of business.

Diana West | November 20, 2008

President Bush has been "briefed," as they say, about the extraordinary spate of Somali piracy that culminated this week in the seizure of the Sirius Star.

Former Secretary of State George Shultz has a few words of advice for Barack Obama about how to deal with Russian provocations: Negotiate without appearing weak.

Michael Reagan | November 20, 2008

Before the Republican Party even begins to think about curing what ails it, members have to recognize the fact that the party is Balkanized.

Paul Weyrich | November 20, 2008

This past week I sat in on a couple of "where do conservatives go from here" panels.

Amanda Carpenter | November 20, 2008

Democratic leadership refuses to consider bankruptcy as an option for the Big Three automaker and doesn't appear to have any solutions to save Detroit, either.

Amanda Carpenter | November 20, 2008

As a longtime member of the powerful Ways and Means committee Rep. Wally Herger (R.-Calif.) thinks it’s time to start speaking directly to the public what his committee does and how it will impact their day-to-day lives.

Sandy Rios | November 20, 2008

No one can be surprised that a messiah figure promising change beat a senator flailing at earmarks. No one cared about John McCain’s earmarks, my friend. No one was inspired by his insistence that Barack Obama was an “honorable” man or assured by his dismissal of “some old terrorist,” named William Ayers.

Cliff May | November 20, 2008

American troops in Afghanistan are fighting what will soon become Barack Obama's war - not just because he will inherit it, but also because he has claimed it.

Larry Elder | November 20, 2008

President-elect Barack Obama, on "60 Minutes," defended the financial bailout package.

Cal Thomas | November 20, 2008

While Congress spends -- and plans to spend -- like the proverbial drunken sailor to "bailout" various industries for practices that are largely their fault and the fault of those in Congress who were supposed to provide oversight, another deficit looms which is at least as troubling as the economic one.

Rebecca Hagelin | November 20, 2008

“Give the people what they want,” the old show-biz slogan goes.

Steve Chapman | November 20, 2008

It was the aftermath of the presidential election and everyone was explaining why the losing party lost. It was out of step with ordinary people. Its voters were too old.

Robert Novak | November 20, 2008

Whether you like him or hate him, Robert Novak's combination of insider dope, political pronouncements, and glowering TV presence have made him a Washington institution.

Matt Towery | November 20, 2008

For president-elect Barack Obama, the time has arrived to make his first big decision. And no, it's not if Hillary will be in the cabinet.

Ross Mackenzie | November 20, 2008

When word came by cell phone several weeks ago of John Ripley's death, I was driving in remote Michigan and had to pull over to get things back together.

Emmett Tyrrell | November 20, 2008

Somewhere in his very interesting "Journals: 1952-2000," the late historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. erupts with the observation that history is unfailingly interesting.

Wed, Nov 19, 2008

Maggie Gallagher | November 19, 2008

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson looks like an investment banker. He's a big guy, whose large hands, broad shoulders and balding head signal he's got the drive, the cojones, to be an alpha male in the once-intensely competitive world of big money.

Ann Coulter | November 19, 2008

With Time magazine comparing Obama to Jesus, I guess we should be relieved that, this week, liberals are only comparing him to Abraham Lincoln.

La Shawn Barber | November 19, 2008

On November 4, 2008, 51 percent of Colorado voters defeated a measure that would have ended state and local government race- and sex-based discrimination and preferences in hiring, contracting, and admissions.

Hopefully there is a lot in a name and generally more than meets the eye!

Rich Galen | November 19, 2008

Pirates have been operating off the coast of Somalia for some time.

Douglas MacKinnon | November 19, 2008

Mike Huckabee’s renewed, juvenile, and un-Christian written assault on former rival Mitt Romney compels me to admit that it was he who served as the inspiration for the evil character. When is enough, enough for this guy?

Thomas Sowell | November 19, 2008

Among the many new "rights" being conjured out of thin air, a new one seems to be a "right" to win.

Michelle Malkin | November 19, 2008

Before Election Day, national media handwringers forged a wildly popular narrative: The right was, in the words of New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, gripped by "insane rage."

John Stossel | November 19, 2008

Is the stock market trying to tell us something? It seems like every time Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson goes on TV, stock prices drop.

Walter E. Williams | November 19, 2008

Evil acts can be given an aura of moral legitimacy by noble-sounding socialistic expressions such as spreading the wealth, income redistribution or caring for the less fortunate.

Mike Adams | November 19, 2008

I’ve stopped reading the New York Times and all of its local affiliates, including the Wilmington McTimes, here in Wilmington, North Carolina. I have also blocked access to The Daily Kos, The Huffington Post, and on all of the computers in my home.

Jonah Goldberg | November 19, 2008

On Sunday night, President-elect Barack Obama told "60 Minutes" that Franklin D. Roosevelt would be a model of sorts for him.

Michael Gerson | November 19, 2008

The founder of General Motors -- the charming, risk-taking Billy Durant -- was never as famous as Henry Ford.

Terry Jeffrey | November 19, 2008

President Bush's trusted treasury secretary, Henry Paulson, is setting the stage for the all-Democratic government that comes to power in January to vastly increase government control over our economy.

Ben Shapiro | November 19, 2008

So far, the federal bailout, which was designed to jumpstart lending, has cost $300 billion and produced no effect. This is not a surprise.

David Harsanyi | November 19, 2008

What will Barack Obama's foreign policy look like during his first term?

Austin Bay | November 19, 2008

Two events and one document frame the historical context of two pending agreements that will guide U.S.-Iraqi relations over the next three to 10 years:

Donald Lambro | November 19, 2008

Barack Obama will likely be forced to scale back his spending plans and perhaps slow his middle-class tax cuts next year because of massive deficits from the recession and the economic bailout.

Ed Feulner | November 19, 2008

According to an old joke, anyone who’s driven in Manhattan knows how long a nanosecond is: It’s the time between when the traffic light in front of you changes from red to green and the person behind you starts honking the horn.

Jacob Sullum | November 19, 2008

Remember when Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson warned us that the economy was about to collapse unless Congress immediately authorized him to spend $700 billion on "troubled assets" held by banks?

Kathleen Parker | November 19, 2008

As Republicans sort out the reasons for their defeat, they likely will overlook or dismiss the gorilla in the pulpit.

Glenn Beck | November 19, 2008

For years, I didn’t understand redemption or atonement—I thought they were just words used in sermons to get more money into the collection basket.

Larry Kudlow | November 19, 2008

Meanwhile, Senior Obama advisors are talking about another $600 billion to pull us out of recession. Some reports even suggest the development of a new industrial policy for big-government interference in housing, banking, energy, autos, and more.

Brian Fitzpatrick | November 18, 2008

What do you do when a major news network, ABC, gives one of its best-known journalists, Barbara Walters, a bully pulpit to deny the fundamental reality that men and women are different?

Laura Hollis | November 18, 2008

With all due respect to Pat Buchanan, what no one seems to be discussing in all of this "auto bailout" morass is the fact that what the unions are to the auto industry, the Democrats are to the country.

Thomas Sowell | November 18, 2008

Wouldn't it be wonderful to live in a world where there were no prices?

Chuck Norris | November 18, 2008

Protestors of Proposition 8 in California (the marriage amendment) shoved aside a 69-year-old woman who was bearing a cross. They reportedly spit on her and stomped on her cross.

In the aftermath of the 2008 Republican electoral bloodbath, many are discussing what direction the party should take to recapture its vitality and viability.

Mona Charen | November 18, 2008

Absurdity, cartoonish violence, sexism, campiness -- these are no bars to enjoying a matinee with my teenaged boys. So off we went to see Daniel Craig as James Bond do his suave star turn in Quantum of Solace over the weekend.

Cal Thomas | November 18, 2008

In an age when "big business" and "corporate greed" seem to be synonymous in the public mind, some bright lights occasionally emerge from the darkness brought on by AIG big spenders and over-the-top high-livers.

Dennis Prager | November 18, 2008

Gay is the new black is one of the mottos of the movement to redefine marriage to include two people of the same sex.

Pat Buchanan | November 18, 2008

When Hank Paulson demanded $700 billion to haul away the trash in the dumpsters of JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs -- assuring us we could hold a garage sale of the junk -- they rebelled.

Bill Murchison | November 18, 2008

The placard in the photo of a recent rally favoring gay marriage asks, bluntly, "Family. Isn't It About Love?"

George Will | November 18, 2008

"Nothing," said a General Motors spokesman last week, "has changed relative to the GM board's support for the GM management team during this historically difficult economic period for the U.S. auto industry."

Phyllis Schlafly | November 17, 2008

Where did the super-majority of votes gathered by Ronald Reagan in his presidential campaigns go in 2008? Can they be reclaimed by future Republican candidates?

Neal Boortz | November 17, 2008

You might think that the election is over -- has been for two weeks now. Not so.

Paul Greenberg | November 17, 2008

I know, these are times that try conservatives' souls. The sunshine soldiers left long ago, and we survivors are left to sit on the ground and tell sad stories of the death of our favorite theories.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | November 17, 2008

Last Friday night I experienced the realization of one of my “bucket list” targets. I have always wanted to be a guest on Larry King’s renowned program.

William Rusher | November 17, 2008

As this is being written, the newspapers and airwaves are awash with speculation that President-elect Barack Obama may name Sen. Hillary Clinton as his secretary of state.

Bill Steigerwald | November 17, 2008

Is the impending collapse of America's Big Three automakers the next "crisis" that must be solved by a massive federal bailout? Most politicians of a certain ideological or geographic bent think so.

Fred Thompson | November 17, 2008

I’m sure after this two-year campaign everyone would like to take a deep breath and put aside politics for a while. The holiday season approaches.

Rich Galen | November 17, 2008

We'll get to why I think Hillary will be the next Secretary of State in a second, but first I want to briefly revisit that questionnaire all applicants for jobs in the Obama Administration have to fill out.

Burt Prelutsky | November 17, 2008

Some people are convinced that a compassionate conservative is an oxymoron. But, I know better. I'm not suggesting I am one, but I do know a few. They're the people who occasionally take me to task for being too critical of liberals.

Bruce Bialosky | November 17, 2008

There is a cyclone of analysis happening in the aftermath of the 2008 elections as to the status of the Republican Party.

The Prop 8 H8ters lost for simple reasons.

Guy Benson | November 16, 2008

The election is over, and the results aren't pretty for Republicans. Barack Obama won the presidency by a fairly comfortable margin, Democrats expanded their majority in the House, and the GOP is hanging onto the filibuster by a hair in the Senate.

David Stokes | November 16, 2008

The Grand Old Party of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, & Ronald Reagan, has entered the proverbial wilderness. It moves from the box seats to the cheap seats, or better - to mix the metaphor a bit – the backbenches.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | November 16, 2008

Financial crises, election overload, and consumer meltdown - it has been a fretful fall. This past week I received e-mails and news from several people about layoffs and job loss.

Conservatism's current intellectual chaos reverberated in the Republican ticket's end-of-campaign crescendo of surreal warnings that big government -- verily, "socialism" -- would impend were Democrats elected.

How much change is needed in order to be the change we can believe in?

Paul Jacob | November 16, 2008

Ken Connor | November 16, 2008

President George Bush likes to describe himself as a "conservative" but his track record doesn't back up his claim.
