Doug Giles | November 29, 2008

I bet Jim Jones is tooling around hell right now green with envy over the mind manipulation the global warming greenies are wielding upon our culture.

Tom Borelli | November 29, 2008

On the issue of global warming, there is little chance that Obama will put his ideology aside in favor of the nation's economic growth.

Michael Barone | November 29, 2008

How can we reduce risk for individuals? That's a natural question when a financial crisis has vaporized trillions of dollars of personal wealth in residential real estate and financial instruments.

Michael Reagan | November 28, 2008

A funny thing happened on his way to the White House

Jonah Goldberg | November 28, 2008

The costs of Washington's bailout fiesta are now so huge, you can see them from space.

Hugh Hewitt | November 28, 2008

I am a "late adapter" to Twitter, which means a few million people started using it first, but no matter.

John McCaslin | November 28, 2008

Thanksgiving is over, the last one celebrated by President George W. Bush before he will turn over the keys to Barack Obama.

John Hawkins | November 28, 2008

After a GOP beating, there is always a debate between the people who want the party to become more principled and those who want to turn the GOP into a poll-driven pile of mush

Kathleen Parker | November 28, 2008

Sound the alarms, man the barracks, alert the producers! Barack Obama, agent of change, isn't a-changin'.

Brent Bozell | November 28, 2008

Christmas is coming, which means it's time for Comedy Central to begin besmirching the holiday.

Mona Charen | November 28, 2008

While Barack Obama's appointments so far have been fairly moderate, other Democrats are whistling "Happy Days are Here Again" and dusting off their wish lists for federal spending.

Oliver North | November 28, 2008

Piracy has long been the consequence of disorder.

Pat Buchanan | November 28, 2008

Barack Obama and George W. Bush seem to have come away from their study of the Great Depression with similar conclusions:

Suzanne Fields | November 28, 2008

As different generations gather during these days of feasting and animated conversations, we scan memories of family at earlier Thanksgivings to further enjoy Thanksgiving present.

Rich Tucker | November 28, 2008

It was back in the early days of the Clinton administration, perhaps, that the lines began to blur. Bill Clinton appointed key members of his campaign message team to his White House staff.

Charles Krauthammer | November 28, 2008

In the old days, if you wanted to get rich, you did it the Warren Buffett way: You learned to read balance sheets. Today you learn to read political tea leaves.

Burt Prelutsky | November 28, 2008

The problem with being a logical human being is that every day, sometimes every hour, you get blind-sided like a quarterback cursed with an underachieving offensive line.

Paul Weyrich | November 28, 2008

As long as I can remember Representative John Dingell (D-MI) was one of the toughest committee chairmen in Congress. His father preceded him in Congress though the Great Depression.

Michelle Malkin | November 28, 2008

In the Year of Bottomless Bailouts, I am most grateful this Thanksgiving for Americans who refuse to abandon thrift, personal responsibility and self-reliance.

Thu, Nov 27, 2008

Ross Mackenzie | November 27, 2008

So -- the financial markets, the incoming administration, Thanksgiving. What do you think?

John McCaslin | November 27, 2008

A black Jimmy Carter would be nothing to be thankful for

Ken Connor | November 27, 2008

In this economic atmosphere, it is easy to despair or bemoan our state, but on Thanksgiving, we should take the opporunity to gain perspective on the important things in life and to be thankful for what we have.

Christopher Merola | November 27, 2008

With this year’s Thanksgiving holiday at our door, it is fitting that we ask an important question that has so much to do with our Constitutional liberties: What is the Separation of Church and State?

Armstrong Williams | November 27, 2008

We must then give thanks and praise for the blessing of being able to place our hands upon the boundary of our imagination.

Larry Elder | November 27, 2008

"How long do you think it will take for the press to turn on Obama?" a friend asked.

Donald Lambro | November 27, 2008

As America fell deeper into the Great Depression after the 1932 presidential election, president-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt wanted nothing to do with Herbert Hoover's economic recovery efforts.

Steve Chapman | November 27, 2008

When it comes to firearms, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley is no slave to rationality.

Emmett Tyrrell | November 27, 2008

There is a condign symmetry about this financial crisis. A government-induced crisis is getting a government-insured resolution.

Amy Menefee | November 27, 2008

As Americans reflect on their blessings this Thanksgiving, will they count the U.S. health care system among them?

George Will | November 27, 2008

In 1892, a Massachusetts court ruled that a policeman's speech rights had not been violated by a law forbidding certain political activities by officers.

Richard Olivastro | November 27, 2008

Gas prices have been heading down. That’s the right direction. AAA reports the “average price per gallon is below $2.00 in 30 states”. That’s a good sign.

Janice Shaw Crouse | November 27, 2008

One after another, we are learning the names of the future Obama Administration. Behold, they are not new faces, nor are they the change agents that Obama’s campaign rhetoric promised.

Wed, Nov 26, 2008

Carrie Schwab Pomerantz | November 26, 2008

The generations before us who lived through frightening economic times came through it by focusing on what they could do, not on what they couldn't control.

Ann Coulter | November 26, 2008

I thought the rest of the world was going to love us if we elected B. Hussein Obama! Somebody better tell the Indian Muslims.

Eliot Peace | November 26, 2008

Conservatism needs an heir - and South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford is just the man the movement needs.

Rachel Marsden | November 26, 2008

Ever walk into a Starbucks and see a bunch of people sitting there debating textbook theories and solving all the world’s problems over a mocha java?

Thomas Sowell | November 26, 2008

There is an old Russian fable, with different versions in other countries, about two poor peasants, Ivan and Boris. The only difference between them was that Boris had a goat and Ivan didn't.

Michelle Malkin | November 26, 2008

The human rights crowd is right: Life is hard for a Guantanamo Bay detainee. The deprivation is unspeakable. According to the facility's "cultural adviser," their brains have not been "stimulated" enough.

John Stossel | November 26, 2008

Do the executives of the Big Three automobile manufacturers think we're stupid?

Walter E. Williams | November 26, 2008

There's a growing anti-trade sentiment in our country. Much of the dialogue is grossly misinformed. Let's try to untangle it a bit with a few questions and observations.

Brent Bozell | November 26, 2008

If there is a dreadfully overused word in the giddy countdown to the Obama inauguration, it is "smart." Not just "smart," but also its stronger cousins like "brilliant" and "genius."

Jonah Goldberg | November 26, 2008

Hypocrisy is an overblown sin. Better to be a hypocrite who occasionally violates his principles than a villain who never does.

Tony Blankley | November 26, 2008

As President-elect Obama's apparent choice for health and human services secretary and as White House health care czar, it is a fair guess that Tom Daschle's view on health care legislation may be decisive.

Ken Blackwell | November 26, 2008

after two disastrous election cycles, it is clear the Republican Party must refocus again. A reenergized GOP must make Republican principles appealing both to its base and also to the changing face of America.

Michael Medved | November 26, 2008

For some of Barack Obama's most ardent supporters, his resounding victory represented the first sign of redemption for a wretched, guilty nation with a 400-year history of oppression.

Ben Shapiro | November 26, 2008

While Americas trade unions are hardly conspiring to bring capitalism down about our ears, trade union leadership couldnt care less about the current economic crisis.

Terry Jeffrey | November 26, 2008

After Ken Blackwell graduated from college, he did a short stint with the Dallas Cowboys, but soon decided playing professional football was not his destiny.

David Harsanyi | November 26, 2008

As we speak, brilliant pundits from across the nation are contemplating the entirely irrelevant question of whether we are a center-left or center-right nation.

Austin Bay | November 26, 2008

Somalia's pirates have a big problem on their hands -- in the form of their greatest prize, the Saudi-owned oil tanker the Sirius Star.

Kathryn Lopez | November 26, 2008

Mormons have a reason to be nervous. I didn't fully appreciate it two years ago, when the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints first came under an intense political spotlight.

Jacob Sullum | November 26, 2008

A year ago, Jack Banas, prosecuting attorney for St. Charles County, Mo., said he would not bring charges against Lori Drew for her role in a MySpace prank that apparently provoked a 13-year-old girl to kill herself.

Ed Feulner | November 26, 2008

It’s getting downright painful to open any piece of mail from a brokerage or investment firm.

Bill Murchison | November 26, 2008

Thankful for what? The question is bound to surface the moment heads incline in reverence at the Thanksgiving table, over pre-dinner drinks, post-dinner drinks, kitchen clean up, trash take out.

Kathleen Parker | November 26, 2008

So much for the wisdom of The People. A new report from the Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI) on the nation's civic literacy finds that most Americans are too ignorant to vote.

Frank Turek | November 26, 2008

After the passage of Prop 8 in California, homosexuals are still howling that they don’t have “equal rights.”

Janet M. LaRue | November 26, 2008

President-elect Barack Obama told an MTV interviewer the day before the election that he believes “marriage is between a man and a woman,” and that he’s “not in favor of gay marriage.”

Tue, Nov 25, 2008

Maggie Gallagher | November 25, 2008

I've been an opinion journalist for 20 years, but when it comes to marriage I'm an activist for a cause I passionately believe in.

Paul Greenberg | November 25, 2008

If personnel is policy, and it is, then Barack Obama's first major appointment to his Cabinet heartens.

John McCaslin | November 25, 2008

Inside the Beltway is told there is no truth to a rumor that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, upon being approached by Barack Obama to become his secretary of state, pointed out that she could see Canada from her adopted state of New York.

Thomas Sowell | November 25, 2008

Barack Obama says that we have to "jolt" the economy. That certainly makes sense, if you take the media's account of the economy seriously-- but should the media be taken seriously?

Chuck Norris | November 25, 2008

Is the government's observance of Thanksgiving a violation of the separation of church and state?

David Limbaugh | November 25, 2008

Many say that now that Barack Obama has been elected, we should all work together for the common good. That sounds wonderful until you realize that we don't all agree on what is the common good.

Mona Charen | November 25, 2008

Thanksgiving is coming -- a time to participate in the great American tradition of maligning and abusing our ancestors.

Cal Thomas | November 25, 2008

Nineteen months after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid declared the war in Iraq "lost" and just nine months after Speaker Nancy Pelosi asserted the war has been a "failure" because it had not brought political change leading to reconciliation, it can now be said conclusively that both were wrong.

Pat Buchanan | November 25, 2008

The morning after Barack Obama's election, the congratulatory message from Moscow was in the chilliest tradition of the Cold War.

Phyllis Schlafly | November 25, 2008

Conservatives face a major political challenge, but they can tackle and overcome it as they have done three times before.

Donald Lambro | November 25, 2008

Most of Barack Obama's economic-stimulus plan is beginning to look like the public-works jobs programs that Franklin D. Roosevelt tried 75 years ago in the Great Depression.

Larry Kudlow | November 25, 2008

When President-elect Obama had a chance to squash the tax-hike threat once and for all at his news conference Monday, he took a pass and let the question linger for another day.

Paul Weyrich | November 25, 2008

Last Monday the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) increased the amount of renewable automobile fuels required to be sold in the United States next year from 7.8% to 10.2% of the 138.5 billion gallons of gasoline consumed.

Dennis Prager | November 25, 2008

That the news media were biased in the 2008 presidential election is now acknowledged by fair-minded people, left or right

Mon, Nov 24, 2008

Diana West | November 24, 2008

Americans may have just embarked on these most ritualistic weeks of the year stretching between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, but something is clearly different this time around.

Amanda Carpenter | November 24, 2008

John Ziegler didn’t know the kind of fury the left would unleash on him when he unveiled his web video “How Obama Got Elected."

Bill Steigerwald | November 24, 2008

Conservative author and radio talk-show host Bill Bennett has been a prominent American political and cultural figure since 1981, when he became President Reagan's chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities and later Secretary of Education.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | November 24, 2008

In 2000, the Democratic Party failed to understand that they no longer had a clear message and they had lost touch with their constituency.

Scott Bensing | November 24, 2008

A run-off election in Georgia could very well determine Republicans’ ability to stave-off the disastrous legislation Democrats have promised to consider in the next Congress. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of this race to Georgia, as well as our nation.

Amanda Carpenter | November 24, 2008

Earmark hawk Rep. Jeff Flake (R.-Ariz.) is once again making a bid for the appropriations committee where there are vacant spots to be filled by Republicans.

William Rusher | November 24, 2008

There are ominous signs that certain forces on the left are gearing up for a new attempt to impose a "fairness doctrine" on American television and radio commentary.

Burt Prelutsky | November 24, 2008

I was about 11 years old when I first fell love with a public library. Up until then, I had certainly been aware that they existed, even apart from the small one at my school, but they had nothing to do with me.

Dinesh D'Souza | November 24, 2008

Contemporary atheism marches behind the banner of science.

John Andrews | November 24, 2008

We are the grateful Americans. We counted our blessings today, some of us in church or in prayer, some on the job or war patrol or a golf course, even some hospitalized or serving time, others just at home with the paper. Or we tried to; the list is long.

Terry Paulson | November 24, 2008

This is a week for America to give thanks and take a break from politics!

Star Parker | November 24, 2008

How can you not feel that emptiness in the pit of your stomach as you watch our financial markets spin downward?

Marvin Olasky | November 24, 2008

The Israelites wandered in the wilderness for 40 years, and U.S. political parties sometimes do the same.

Mike Adams | November 24, 2008

Pepperdine University President Andrew Benton recently interjected himself into a controversy concerning a commercial in support of California Proposition 8.

Sun, Nov 23, 2008

Mark Hillman | November 23, 2008

After being routed at the polls for two consecutive election cycles, Republicans are turning introspective, asking how the party fell out of favor so suddenly and how to correct course.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | November 23, 2008

It is still hard to believe but, if Hillary Clinton's "confidantes" are to be trusted, Barack Obama is about to appoint her secretary of state and she is about to accept. This appointment represents the capstone of betrayal of Obama's promise to be the "change we can believe in."

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | November 23, 2008

While a few members of my extended family celebrate Thanksgiving as a prelude to the after-Thanksgiving sales, I think of it as the day before the turkey leftovers.

David Stokes | November 23, 2008

As the big boys from the big three pressed their case this week for a taxpayer funded bridge or bailout (pick your metaphor), the role of big labor in Mr. Obama’s coming administration is being seriously tested even before the guy gets to say “so help me God.”

Steve Chapman | November 23, 2008

Obama exhibits blithe confidence in the government's power to take economic problems and make them better. He will fare better if he keeps in mind its unbounded capacity to make things worse.

George Will | November 23, 2008

Of conservatives' few victories this year, the most cherished came when the Supreme Court, in District of Columbia v. Heller, held for the first time that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to bear arms.

Ken Connor | November 23, 2008

Henry Paulson, Secretary of the Treasury and Chief Architect of the Wall Street Bailout, is dazed and confused. At least, that's the conclusion one can't help but arrive at.

Paul Jacob | November 23, 2008

Does "too big to fail" really mean "no nabob left behind"?

Salena Zito | November 23, 2008

In the end as in the beginning much of the story of George W. Bush is that he really a Texan. He would really rather be in Texas than Washington.

Austin Hill | November 23, 2008

So now, what are we to make of the return of the Clinton gang to Washington?
