Doug Giles | November 28, 2009

ACORN, naturally, is going into full damsel in distress mode, stating it was an accident and a coincidence that it occurred right before Brown and his boys were to perform their investigative colonoscopy into ACORN’s corrupt underbelly.

Rich Tucker | November 28, 2009

You should be very afraid. No, not of Islamic extremists plotting to kill their fellow Americans.

Ken Blackwell | November 28, 2009

Well, now it turns out that Kentucky investigators have concluded that poor Sparkman committed suicide, faking his own death in order to let unnamed beneficiaries collect on a recently-contracted life insurance policy.

Paul Driessen | November 28, 2009

As legions of scientists, activists, journalists, bureaucrats and politicians prepare to embark for Copenhagen, a predictable barrage of climate horrors has been unleashed, to advance proposals to slash hydrocarbon use and carbon dioxide emissions, restrict economic growth, and implement global governance and taxation.

Diana West | November 27, 2009

We must recognize and protest the travesties of military justice that have tried, convicted, jailed and denied clemency to all too many brave Americans, the same brave Americans who have fought our wars only to be unfairly charged with "murder" in the war zone.

Hugh Hewitt | November 27, 2009

So, how to persuade you to buy a book about the 10 Commandments?

Caroline Glick | November 27, 2009

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu weakened Israel this week. And he did so for no good reason.

Brent Bozell | November 27, 2009

If there is an entertainment trend ripe for satire, it is the begging-for-attention smut routines at nationally televised music awards shows. How low can these "artists" go?

Pat Buchanan | November 27, 2009

With the House debate on health care at its hottest, the U.S. Catholic bishops issued a stunning ultimatum: Impose an absolute ban on tax funds for abortions, or we call for defeat of the Pelosi bill.

Michael Gerson | November 27, 2009

Like the nearby Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, the Newseum -- Washington's museum dedicated to journalism -- displays dinosaurs.

Suzanne Fields | November 27, 2009

This is not the happiest Thanksgiving holiday. So many out of work, so many others afraid they're next, and the recession is not receding as swiftly as we were told it would.

Charles Krauthammer | November 27, 2009

The United States has the best health care in the world -- but because of its inefficiencies, also the most expensive.

Oliver North | November 27, 2009

America is at war. According to the latest opinion polls, that is not what many Americans want to hear as we celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday.

Thu, Nov 26, 2009

Larry Elder | November 26, 2009

CBS "news anchor" Katie Couric recently whipped out her "reporter's notebook" and closed her newscast with a pro-"health care reform" poem.

Ken Blackwell | November 26, 2009

It’s probably really convenient that Zeke and Rahm are brothers. That way we can apply Chicago-style politics to your health care needs. You won’t have many choices under ObamaCare.

Cal Thomas | November 26, 2009

The United States Supreme Court this month heard arguments in a case that could decide whether a child who commits a crime should be sentenced in some circumstances to life without parole.

Ben Shapiro | November 26, 2009

There's a wonderful e-mail going around this time of year. It's like a lot of other e-mails -- it tells a warm and fuzzy story. But this one is different. It's actually true.

Matt Towery | November 26, 2009

What I'm most thankful for is that I grew up in a time when there were no cell phones or emails. Until I was a teen, there were hardly any cable TV channels, either.

Jillian Bandes | November 26, 2009

Several Republican National Committee members have proposed a conservative litmus test for candidates who wish to receive support from the RNC.

Linda Chavez | November 26, 2009

There's nothing to get you into the mood for a Thanksgiving gathering like a little H1N1 in the air.

Janice Shaw Crouse | November 26, 2009

This Thanksgiving, I’m grateful for the Internet and the opportunity it affords for free expression. Granted, filth is just a click away, but the opportunity to exercise free will in ways that bring harm has been present since the Garden of Eden.

Marvin Olasky | November 26, 2009

Confirmation of biblical wisdom came earlier this fall from an unlikely source: an Ivy Mikhail Gorbachev came to power in 1985 and saw the Soviet Union falling apart.

Ross Mackenzie | November 26, 2009

It's Thanksgiving, the annual summation of our joys.

Brion McClanahan | November 26, 2009

Thanksgiving is here once again, and with only four weeks until Christmas, the mad rush to stuff stockings and fill the void under the Christmas tree will officially begin not on “Black Friday,” but on Thanksgiving Day this year.

George Will | November 26, 2009

Another huge value-destroying hurricane is about to slam America, destroying billions of dollars of value. Another Katrina? No, another Christmas.

Hans A. von Spakovsky | November 26, 2009

As we all head to our parents’ or grandparents’ houses for Thanksgiving or plan to hold the celebration at our own homes with family and friends, it seems like a good time to remember how Thanksgiving reflects many of the core values that make us a remarkable nation.

Emmett Tyrrell | November 26, 2009

Well, as I say, thanks to the work of these patriotic hackers, we now have plenty of evidence that the global warmists are dishonest bullies.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | November 26, 2009

We know the story of the first Thanksgiving almost 400 years ago, of the pilgrims and the Indians coming together and sharing their food after a bountiful harvest.

Wed, Nov 25, 2009

Ann Coulter | November 25, 2009

Is it still too soon to come to the conclusion that the Fort Hood shooting was an act of terrorism?

Michael Barone | November 25, 2009

Double-digit. That hyphenated adjective has been used most often recently to describe October's 10.2 percent unemployment rate. But it can also be used to describe the federal budget deficit as a percentage of the gross domestic product.

Maggie Gallagher | November 25, 2009

I've been thinking a lot lately about thankfulness. Many people do not know this about me, but I used to be a libertarian.

Alex Gage | November 25, 2009

As it becomes increasingly clear in the light of day that the bill passed by the U.S. House in the dark of night cannot find the necessary votes in the Senate, it is time for leaders to explore alternatives that have the support of the American people and will set us on a path to contain costs and achieve our goals without massive tax hikes and ever more spending.

Austin Nimocks | November 25, 2009

A fundamental assumption of the ongoing debate on the definition of marriage is that it is.

Frank Turek | November 25, 2009

I don’t want to impugn all scientists, but it is true that some of them are less than honest Sometimes they lie to get or keep their jobs. Sometimes they lie to get grant money.

Michelle Malkin | November 25, 2009

As we gather round the Thanksgiving table, bow our heads in prayer and feast on the holiday bird, it is only fitting to take a moment to fete the unforgettable turkeys of 2009.

John Stossel | November 25, 2009

When you knowingly pay someone to lie to you, we call the deceiver an illusionist or a magician. When you unwittingly pay someone to do the same thing, I call him a politician.

Walter E. Williams | November 25, 2009

I put my faith in people's self-interest as the most reliable way to get them to do what I want and believe most other people share my faith. What would your prediction be about the supply of housing, cars and most other things if Congress enacted a law mandating that a house or car could only be donated, not sold? If you said there would be a shortage of houses and cars, go to the head of the class.

Jonah Goldberg | November 25, 2009

I hereby forfeit my claim to a right-wing conspiracy decoder ring by offering two cheers for the Democrats.

Tony Blankley | November 25, 2009

Two noteworthy responses to my column last week ("An Exit Strategy To Die For") deserve my reply. In the online magazine Commentary, Max Boot, one of the most respected foreign-policy voices on the right, explicitly dissented from the central premise of my column.

Michael Medved | November 25, 2009

As American families sit down to their traditional Thanksgiving feasts they will naturally recall the familiar story of the Pilgrims taught to every school kid and, in the process, distort the true character of the nation’s religious heritage.

Michael Gerson | November 25, 2009

As Americans count their blessings, it is useful to remember women who count their beatings -- in the once-fair country of Zimbabwe, cursed by Robert Mugabe.

Ben Shapiro | November 25, 2009

Approximately once every four years, the media establishment and certain "moderates" in the Republican Party decide to destroy a conservative candidate. They sharpen their blades and their tongues and they go into action, armed with the conviction that the vitriol of their pens will wither away the candidate's reputation and potential. Very often, it works.

Terry Jeffrey | November 25, 2009

When Martin Luther King Jr. Day arrives in January, I doubt you will hear commentators at MSNBC denigrating that heroic leader of the Civil Rights movement by claiming he improperly crossed the boundary line between church and state when he demanded that the laws of this country protect the God-given rights of African Americans. They would not have the nerve.

Debra J. Saunders | November 25, 2009

On Wednesday, President Obama will issue the White House's standard hokey pardon of a Thanksgiving turkey. That's good news for the lucky turkey, but not much help for the many nonviolent first offenders languishing in federal prisons because, nine months into office, Obama has yet to exercise his presidential pardon power.

David Harsanyi | November 25, 2009

Oh, beloved martyrs. Leaders of the rabble. Fearless masters of decency. Save us from ourselves.

Austin Bay | November 25, 2009

Cyber attackers -- whether they are spies, teenage geek vandals or criminal thieves and blackmailers -- seek military, diplomatic, economic and personal data, or seek to disrupt the opponents' ability to transfer data effectively and securely.

Jillian Bandes | November 25, 2009

Who might be the next victim of Obamacare? Gun owners. Government health care reform "will most likely dump your gun-related health data into a government database."

Jacob Sullum | November 25, 2009

According to a report from a shoe store in Campbellsville, Ky., the Army Corps of Engineers "created or saved" nine jobs when it used money allocated by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to buy nine pairs of work boots.

Marybeth Hicks | November 25, 2009

My community is both a state capital and a college town, which means I live in a geographic bastion of political correctness. To wit: A recent headline in my hometown newspaper actually read: “Celebrating diversity.”

Carrie Lukas | November 25, 2009

It's only been a few weeks since an aghast but riveted world watched as a home-made balloon, presumably carrying a six-year-old child, soared and dipped across the Colorado sky. It seems like it's been a lot longer.

Tue, Nov 24, 2009

Paul Greenberg | November 24, 2009

It's got to be about the oldest dodge in the book: When a politician casts a momentous vote on a major issue, and doesn't want to take responsibility for it, the pol minimizes its importance. The folks back home are told it was just a little ol' procedural vote, and they needn't worry their pretty little heads about it.

John Hawkins | November 24, 2009

Calling a politician dishonest is like calling a burglar dishonest. The difference is that burglars take less of your money, don't get invited on the Sunday morning shows, and are more dangerous -- unless you happen to be a woman near a male member of the Kennedy family.

Thomas Sowell | November 24, 2009

No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems-- of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.

Chuck Norris | November 24, 2009

Over just the past year, Washington has worked double time to limit your liberties, despite the fact that such reductions have been cloaked under the guise of governmental progress.

Michael Barone | November 24, 2009

Is Congress, behind on Barack Obama's deadlines on health care and cap-and-trade legislation, and flummoxed by the failure of the stimulus package to hold unemployment below 10.2 percent, prepared to address the immigration issue next year?

David Limbaugh | November 24, 2009

In a Democratic fundraising speech in Iowa over the weekend, Vice President Joe Biden told party loyalists that opponents of the Obama administration's agenda "should be worried about us, for we are their worst nightmare." Duh.

Mona Charen | November 24, 2009

The president and his party in Congress are attempting to dig this country so deep into debt that we may not be able to climb out. This is a strong and resilient country, but we wouldn’t be the first great nation to bankrupt ourselves.

Cal Thomas | November 24, 2009

Not all revolutions begin in the streets with tanks and guns. Some advance slowly, almost imperceptibly, until a nation is transformed and the public realizes too late that their freedoms are gone.

Dennis Prager | November 24, 2009

I have always loved Thanksgiving. It is my favorite national holiday. It reminds Americans how fortunate we are to be Americans. But, it is with a heavy heart that I write that my mood on this Thanksgiving will not be the same as on any other I have ever experienced. My gratitude will be marred by a dark cloud of "transformation."

Pat Buchanan | November 24, 2009

Terry Paulson | November 24, 2009

It’s obscene to see these executives get huge bonuses when its government money that kept their companies from going bankrupt.

Phyllis Schlafly | November 24, 2009

The U.S. Constitution can rescue us from the Obama administration's latest push toward "remaking America." Our Constitution is on the people's side to stop Obama from turning the judiciary into a platform for America's sworn enemies to spread their propaganda and even use our own laws against us.

Ed Feulner | November 24, 2009

“You can fool some of the people all of the time,” Abraham Lincoln said, “and all of the people some of the time.” Apparently Congress agrees. Indeed, lawmakers are counting on it: In an effort to fool just enough people for just long enough, they’re engaging in budget tricks to ram through health “reform.”

Rebecca Hagelin | November 24, 2009

This week I will have been married to my wonderful husband Andy for 25 years. He is a very patient man!

Michael McBride | November 24, 2009

President Obama is lining up two make two of the largest blunders he could make as a President, and both will cost American lives.

Mon, Nov 23, 2009

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | November 23, 2009

Anxious to avoid raising taxes too much to pay for their health care proposals, the Obama administration and its congressional allies hit on a great new idea: Make the states raise their taxes to fund the program, instead.

Howard Rich | November 23, 2009

Barack Obama predictably proclaimed “American values” on his recent trip to China, criticizing government censorship and praising an unrestricted, unregulated Internet as one of the lynchpins of modern democracy.

Laura Hollis | November 23, 2009

We are being betrayed by those we elected to represent us.

Nathan Tabor | November 23, 2009

This past year has been a tough one for many, if not most, Americans. While fighting two fronts in the war on terrorism, we've had to contend with economic turmoil, soaring unemployment, political division and a growing sense that America's best years are behind us.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | November 23, 2009

Christianity is not merely a set of doctrines or beliefs; it lives out the ideals set forth in the Bible. This compels us as Christians to commit now, more than ever, to reaffirm the biblical truths that support the common good in our land.

Bruce Bialosky | November 23, 2009

Carolyn Blashek was in shock, like many of us, on 9/11. She was searching to find something that would assuage her concerns. Her decision was to enlist in the Army.

Star Parker | November 23, 2009

At a time when our country is sick, it shouldn't surprise that one our sickest places is our nation's capital.

Mike Adams | November 23, 2009

I (jokingly) used my column to invite people to put their names on a petition to expel a student of Purdue University for intellectual intolerance, but now offer him a very serious chance for personal redemption...

Peter Ferrara | November 23, 2009

Nick Balzano, President of the local Service Employees International Union (SEIU) threatened the Allentown City Council with legal action for allowing the Boy Scouts to clear the trail.

Brian Birdnow | November 23, 2009

In the immediate aftermath of the rampage, news reports celebrated the actions of Sergeant Kimberly D. Munley of the Fort hood civilian police force.

Sun, Nov 22, 2009

David Stokes | November 22, 2009

tasteless joke – one that saw earlier popularity during the administrations of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush – has resurfaced across America. It is being told in whispers, emails, and even bumper stickers.

Salena Zito | November 22, 2009

The 2008 national election clearly shows our next generation of leaders must possess something that many recent and current elected officials lack: intellectual courage.

Austin Hill | November 22, 2009

Where did the swine flu vaccinations go? They went the way of the “stimulus money” – that is to say, they were sent here, and shipped there.

Debra J. Saunders | November 22, 2009

I'm not scared of what KSM has to say in court either. I'm scared of what a federal judge might say and do.

Steve Chapman | November 22, 2009

Last week, the body of Chicago school board president Michael Scott was found in the Chicago River with a single bullet wound in his head. The big story was that this powerful, well-connected public official had, according to the county medical examiner, committed suicide. The less-noticed story was that he did it with an illegal weapon.

Ken Connor | November 22, 2009

Affordability, accessibility, quality?the hallowed trifecta at the center of the debate over health care reform.

George Will | November 22, 2009

What city contributed most to the making of the modern world? The Paris of the Enlightenment and then of Napoleon, pioneer of mass armies and nationalist statism? London, seat of parliamentary democracy and center of finance? Or perhaps Titusville, Pa.

Doug Giles | November 22, 2009

Hasan told us what he thought of Americans and why he did what he did. Why won’t we believe him?

Paul Jacob | November 22, 2009

Heck, we’re talking a mere $100 million. Chicken feed. Who could be swayed by such a trivial sum?

Ken Blackwell | November 22, 2009

We say we are going to give a fair trial to this man. He is going to be found guilty, the President tells us. And, Mr. Obama continues, he is going to get the death penalty.
