Brent Bozell | October 01, 2010

Don't read Newsweek magazine while drinking a beverage. A spit take is the obvious first reaction to a column by Julia Baird headlined "The Shame of Family Films." On the Internet, this article is coded as "Why Family Films Are So Sexist."

David Limbaugh | October 01, 2010

A couple of back-to-back statements by President Obama at a town hall rally in Des Moines, Iowa, tell us all we need to know about his economic philosophy and that we aren't going to climb out of his recession and begin to slow the growth of the national debt as long as he's calling the shots.

Mona Charen | October 01, 2010

Income inequality, we learn from the Census Bureau, has reached the highest level since data were first collected on the subject in 1967. Poverty has increased dramatically, with one of seven Americans now falling below the poverty threshold.

Debra J. Saunders | October 01, 2010

Brian Walsh | October 01, 2010

Throughout the country there are a number of Democrats who claim to be conservative enough to represent deeply Republican districts, and in North Carolina’s 7th, Mike McIntyre is definitely one of them. Don't be fooled.

Meredith Turney | October 01, 2010

There are very few political issues that can unite conservatives and liberals. The political polarization has reached such an intractable state that it seems the two sides will never agree on solutions for society’s pressing problems.

Paul Kengor | September 30, 2010

David Harsanyi | September 29, 2010

If polls reflect a growing appetite for legalization of marijuana, why is it that so few elected representatives of note -- and by "so few" I mean "no" -- support it?

Jillian Bandes | September 29, 2010

A new poll shows Florida Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson 7 points behind Republican challenger Dan Webster. This development warrants a little review of Grayson's, uh, colorful history.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | September 29, 2010

David Limbaugh | September 28, 2010

With news of President Obama's plan to swarm the heartland this week to re-energize his base, one wonders whether he's finally heard the message that mainstream America is repulsed by his agenda.

The poverty rate in the United States, reports the Census Bureau, increased to 14.3 percent last year, up from 13.2 percent in 2008, bringing the number of Americans living in poverty to its highest levels since 1994. This is not the change on which Obama voters were counting.

Dennis Prager | September 28, 2010

All Americans, including conservatives, understand why any leftist would vote Democrat this year.

Pat Buchanan | September 28, 2010

Debra J. Saunders | September 28, 2010

The House Republicans' "Pledge to America" calls for an extension of the Bush tax cuts for all; a rollback of government spending to pre-stimulus, pre-bailout levels; "strict budget caps," an end to the Troubled Asset Relief Program and the rest of the Obama stimulus package. What's not to like?

Phyllis Schlafly | September 28, 2010

Already tasting victory in November, Republicans in Congress issued "A Pledge to America" setting forth their goals.

Rebecca Hagelin | September 28, 2010

A recent survey suggests that Americans are more accepting than ever of homosexual "families". Does growing acceptance make it right?

President Obama is crowing about his small-business bill, signed into law on Monday.

Mon, Sep 27, 2010

Michael Reagan | September 27, 2010

It's should be called the law of unintended consequences, and Congress should learn to abide by it, taking enough time to discover whether the road they choose to follow is smooth or filled with ruts.

Byron York | September 27, 2010

Are you a financial adviser? You may not know it, but you've got a green job. Are you a wholesale buyer? You've got a green job, too. Or maybe you're a newspaper reporter. You, too, have a green job -- at least according to the Obama administration.

Katie Gage | September 27, 2010

On occasion, Congress votes on matters that have a serious and meaningful impact on people’s lives and workplaces across the country.

Frank Gaffney | September 27, 2010

Last week, Republicans in the House of Representatives unveiled with much fanfare their "Pledge to America." It is intended by the GOP leadership to serve as both a campaign platform for winning a new majority and as a program for governing should they succeed.

Caroline Glick | September 27, 2010

Following the example of its counterparts in the West, for decades the Israeli Left has carefully cultivated its image as the fun side of the political divide.

Star Parker | September 27, 2010

Banter continues about the Republican Party being pushed to the right by “ideologues.”

Mike Adams | September 27, 2010

During the 1990s, “seeker-friendly” churches began popping up everywhere. The fact that many are now struggling has less to do with the economy than the culture.

Lurita Doan | September 27, 2010

Barack Obama has a credibility problem. Obama has overpromised and under-delivered on countless issues such as the economy, job creation, healthcare reform and transparency.

Bruce Bialosky | September 27, 2010

If you doubt the prescience of Ayn Rand, turn to page 744 of Atlas Shrugged to read about a doctor who no longer practices his profession.

Jillian Bandes | September 27, 2010

Comedian Jon Stewart's "Restoring Sanity" rally pokes fun at overzealous political activism, but it's hard not to see how it doesn't attack the Right more than it attacks the Left.

Brian Walsh | September 27, 2010

Having to run a real campaign for the first time in a long while, Democrat Loretta Sanchez also faces a Hispanic independent candidate on the ballot.

Salena Zito | September 26, 2010

In the place of a once-robust pottery industry, a museum is dedicated to the area’s ceramic plants. The 300 factories of old are now down to one that produces popular, colorful Fiestaware.

Austin Hill | September 26, 2010

As a remedy for rising gasoline prices, Obama wanted to raise taxes on oil companies, and use that “extra” tax revenue to give “working Americans” a thousand-dollar voucher that they could use to make gasoline purchases.

Debra J. Saunders | September 26, 2010

I don't understand why San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris wants to be California's next attorney general. Then again, it's hard to understand why she even ran for DA.

Ken Connor | September 26, 2010

As the midterm elections rapidly approach and Tea Party candidates continue to gain ground in primary battles across the country, the Republican establishment is beginning to feel the sand shift beneath their feet.

Brian Walsh | September 26, 2010

Paul Jacob | September 26, 2010

In most states, voters are about to get a chance to make a difference.

Kevin McCullough | September 26, 2010

The Democratic Leadership in the Congress made a pretty big strategic mistake on Thursday.
