Wynton Marsalis and his Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra spent all last week as grateful guests of a Stalinist/Apartheid regime that murdered more political prisoners in its first three years in power than Hitler’s murdered in its first six, that jailed political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s, and that came within a hair of nuking The Lincoln Center.

Kathryn Lopez | October 16, 2010

The tea party may not be looking for a single spokesman or leader, but in Joe Miller it has its personification: an outsider, a constitutionalist and someone who's thoroughly fed up with the political system's disrespect for the common man.

Dan Gainor | October 16, 2010

We now return to Barack Obama’s America – the election edition. It’s not the “bipartisan,” “post-racial” place he promised. Thanks to the left and their media flunkies, it’s Character Assassination Nation.

Well, he’s back! In his “White House Diary” Jimmy Carter engages in his latest attempt to burnish his historical reputation.

Israel's opposition leaders spent the past week trying to prove their relevance. On Tuesday, both former prime minister Ehud Olmert and Kadima leader Tzipi Livni accused Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of wrecking Israel's relations with the US. Both Livni and Olmert claimed that Netanyahu is taking a knife to Israel's most valuable alliance by refusing to bow to US President Barack Obama's demand that the government extend the ban on Jewish building in Judea and Samaria for an additional 60 days.

David Limbaugh | October 15, 2010

Delaware Senate candidate Chris Coons cloaks his end-justifies-the-means pursuit in high-minded terms, but it is nothing more than his policy preferences guided by his worldview and absolutely untethered by constitutional constraints.

Mona Charen | October 15, 2010

Two great questions ricochet around the capital in the countdown to the midterms.

Ken Blackwell | October 15, 2010

Diana West | October 15, 2010

All eyes are on the war on free speech, the one that Dutch powers-that-be are waging inside an Amsterdam courtroom.

Linda Chavez | October 15, 2010

President Obama has finally admitted that a core premise of his nearly trillion-dollar stimulus package was false.

Larry Elder | October 14, 2010

If Republicans can seize just 20 or 30 percent of the black vote, the Democratic Party -- and its ability to pull the country to the left -- could be stopped, if not reversed.

Mike Adams | October 14, 2010

For years, I have been trying to get the Women's Resource Center to link the WRC website with the local Crisis Pregnancy Center website. But for ideological reasons you have refused to do so.

Ann Coulter | October 13, 2010

If the Bush administration ever treated terrorism suspects the way Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal treats law-abiding citizens and small businesses, even conservatives would have blanched.

Allen Hunt | October 13, 2010

Obama appears to be breaking new ground in leadership: leadership by low expectations.

Scott Wheeler | October 13, 2010

Obama is out peddling this idea that "foreign interests" are backing the tea party movement. This is the same Obama that, to this day, refuses to disclose his own donors from his presidential campaign.

One out of every eight Americans is on food stamps!

Brian Walsh | October 13, 2010

The 2010 Index of Economic Freedom lowers the ranking of the United States to eighth out of 179 nations -- behind Canada!

Here's an idea from the GOP that would would take the first necessary steps to get us back on the road to recovery.

Brent Bozell | October 13, 2010

A major part of the Barack Obama narrative when he ran for president was his international roots. So it's a little weird to watch Obama yelling from the campaign podium that foreigners are funding political commercials and stealing our elections.

The good news is that it's apparently not racist to call Obama arrogant anymore.

Success in Afghanistan is beginning to come in the first muddy trickles after a long drought.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | October 13, 2010

The establishment media have launched a brutal attack on Carl Paladino, New York's Republican gubernatorial candidate, for this reason: Paladino spoke the truth about homosexual behavior.

David Harsanyi | October 13, 2010

The Obama administration's preposterous attack on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce does nothing to help Democrats and everything to reinforce the moderate voter's perception that the president's party has gone bonkers.

Chuck Norris | October 12, 2010

When Barack Obama was elected president, he made claims that he would "go through our federal budget -- page by page, line by line -- eliminating those programs we don't need." He has done no such thing.

John Hawkins | October 12, 2010

Barack Obama is a petty little man whose grandiose sense of self importance has always far outstripped his abilities and accomplishments.

David Limbaugh | October 12, 2010

The most noteworthy aspect of President Barack Obama's slander of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for allegedly "stealing our democracy" by laundering foreign corporate donations is that such disgraceful behavior is par for the course for this self-described post-partisan president.

Even though America is fighting wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, members of President Obama's Cabinet are three times more likely to have attended law school than boot camp.

Phyllis Schlafly | October 12, 2010

The attack on the institution of marriage is not only the biggest cultural but also the biggest fiscal issue of our times, and political and judicial attacks by gays are only part of the problem.

Frank Gaffney | October 12, 2010

Republicans are gleeful at the prospect that - with just three weeks to go to the November 2nd mid-term elections - they are poised to make significant gains in both the House and Senate.

Bill Murchison | October 12, 2010

Those of a certain age -- meaning we recall where we were when Kennedy was shot and the size of Jerry Lee Lewis' pompadour -- know the venerability of the question of how much government is too much government and how much the answers vary over time.

Guy Benson | October 11, 2010

Robert Dold, the GOP's hopeful candidate in Illinois' 10th district, is a successful small businessman. "We do pest control, which a lot of people think is perfect for Washington, DC," Dold jokes.

Salena Zito | October 11, 2010

When voters walk into their precincts in 20-odd days for the midterm election, they won’t think about "saving" Democrats or "helping" Republicans. They will think about themselves.
