Paul Driessen | October 30, 2010

False, misleading or fraudulent claims have long brought the wrath of juries, judges and government agencies down on perpetrators. So have substandard manufacturing practices.

Doug Giles | October 30, 2010

What do the preening Progressives demand from the multitudinous rubes of the left, right and center?

Jillian Bandes | October 30, 2010

Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” and Steven Colbert’s “Rally to Restore Fear” was hilarious, and heartbreaking.

Kathryn Lopez | October 30, 2010

Can the party and allies of former Scranton altar boy Joe Biden stop pretending that the Constitution enshrines a hermetically sealed separation between religion and politics?

Orrin Hatch | October 30, 2010

The Democratic operative, James Carville, coined one of the most legendary campaign catchphrases, “it’s the economy, stupid.” Close to two decades later with our federal deficits this year and last, the highest on record since World War II, that phrase should be changed to, “it’s the spending, stupid.”

David Harsanyi | October 30, 2010

This election cycle has seen a renewed deference to the Constitution, and it's really exciting -- though a bit confusing.

Virgil Goode | October 30, 2010

The Democrats are going nuts over Sharron Angle’s latest anti-illegal immigration ad, “The Wave.”

Brian Walsh | October 30, 2010

In Upstate New York lies New York’s 20th Congressional District, a largely rural district currently held by vulnerable freshman Democrat Scott Murphy.

Larry Kudlow | October 30, 2010

On the eve of the midterm elections, a third-quarter GDP report showing a meager 2 percent growth rate is the final nail in the Obama Democrats’ political coffin.

Caroline Glick | October 29, 2010

In matters of foreign policy for the next two years, Obama will be less burdened by to Congressional oversight.

Frank Gaffney | October 29, 2010

What Obama has in mind for Israel after the election next week will make his previous treatment of the Jewish State look like the good old days.

Joel Mowbray | October 29, 2010

A key figure in one of the most important races in the country has a nasty habit of mingling with Islamic extremists.

Rich Galen | October 29, 2010

Going into the summer of 2010, we were assured by the political geniuses in the White House that Barack Obama and Joe Biden would be out selling it as "Recovery Summer."

Jillian Bandes | October 29, 2010

Slovenians “vote blood, not party,” according to outgoing Ohio Sen. George Voinovich (R), who campaigned this week with gubernatorial candidate John Kasich.

Katie Pavlich | October 29, 2010

Four days to go until the 2010 midterm elections and already we have seen rampant voter fraud taking place in many states.

Thomas Sowell | October 29, 2010

Most elections are about particular policies, particular scandals or particular personalities. But these issues don't mean as much this year-- not because they are not important, but because this election is a crossroads election, one that can decide what path this country will take for many years to come.

Michelle Malkin | October 29, 2010

My military friends have a favorite saying: "If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target."

Brent Bozell | October 29, 2010

No doubt about it, Fox's "Glee" is a pop-culture juggernaut. In 2009, the "Glee" cast landed 25 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, the most by any artist since the Beatles.

Jonah Goldberg | October 29, 2010

I'd like to ask a simple question: Why isn't Julian Assange dead?

David Limbaugh | October 29, 2010

Liberals were mortified at Bush's alleged encroachment on our individual liberties, but now that they're in control, we see where liberty ranks on their list of priorities.

Mona Charen | October 29, 2010

I am as delighted as any conservative could be about predictions for Tuesday's election. But the exultation among some on the right is making me nervous.

Oliver North | October 29, 2010

CHICAGO -- According to pollsters and pundits, next Tuesday's midterm elections for the 112th Congress are going to be a referendum on the nation's economic travail.

Pat Buchanan | October 29, 2010

The polls and pundits are all in alignment now.

Suzanne Fields | October 29, 2010

Spooky election campaigns jump-start Halloween this year. Christine O'Donnell, a Tea Party Republican running for a Senate seat from Delaware, is looking for a metered space to park her broomstick.

Linda Chavez | October 29, 2010

Nearly one in four voters will have cast their ballot before Election Day, but I won't be one of them.

Diana West | October 29, 2010

Last Sunday, the New York Times described a crude scene that smacked of not exactly petty graft.

Donald Lambro | October 29, 2010

WASHINGTON -- The Democrats keep asking the Republicans to say where they would cut federal spending to shrink a massive $1.3 trillion deficit if they win control of Congress on Nov. 2.

Emmett Tyrrell | October 29, 2010

WASHINGTON -- There is an axiom that is adhered to by conservative journalists that explains at least some of what for liberals is this inexplicable election. It is the Taranto Principle.

J.D. Thorpe | October 29, 2010

Amidst the exuberant celebration of Obama’s election in 2008, many liberal talking heads pronounced the death of conservatism. Yet just two short years later, the Republicans are poised to overwhelm the Democrats in the midterm elections. RealClearPolitics predicts that the GOP will gain eight seats in the Senate, six governorships, and approximately fifty seats in the House. What has spurred this reverse of fortunes?

Brian Walsh | October 29, 2010

With the political environment turning toxic for Democrats, a Congressional seat in Southern Minnesota is moving towards a GOP pick-up opportunity.

Andrew Tallman | October 28, 2010

Imagine one calm afternoon while you sit on your patio reading a book that your phone rings. On the other end is your 33-year-old firefighter son sounding rather anxious.

Jillian Bandes | October 28, 2010

Keith Rothfus’ campaign was under the radar until just a few weeks ago. Then, it came out of the shadows with a very clear message.

Cliff May | October 28, 2010

Assuming the polls, prognosticators and pundits are worth their salt, this time next week President Obama will be facing political climate change.

Larry Kudlow | October 28, 2010

Perhaps I was right to give Treasury man Tim Geithner the benefit of the doubt over his statements last week hinting at King Dollar protection. Perhaps.

Brian Walsh | October 28, 2010

Locked in perhaps the toughest reelection battle of his career, longtime incumbent Democrat Sanford Bishop is trying to pull out all the stops to stunt the momentum of Republican Mike Keown.

Hugh Hewitt | October 28, 2010

When the Los Angeles Times published its last poll for the races between Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown for governor and between Carly Fiorina and Barbara Boxer for U.S. Senate, veteran Times' watchers laughed out loud.

Guy Benson | October 28, 2010

A hearty campaign staff comprised of disaffected Democrats, independents, and even a few Bay State Republicans, has been placing over 5,000 campaign calls per day and processing countless mailers since the primary election. All to campaign against incumbent Barney Frank.

Jillian Bandes | October 28, 2010

In his final push against Republican Pat Toomey in the Pennsylvania Senate race, an advertisement from Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak features a bag of feces collected from his family dog.

Thomas Sowell | October 28, 2010

Politics is not the only place where some pretty brassy statements have been made and repeated so often that some people have accepted these brassy statements as being as good as gold.

Michael Barone | October 28, 2010

Who is the largest single political contributor in the 2010 campaign cycle? The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.

Victor Davis Hanson | October 28, 2010

Juan Williams was just fired from NPR. His sin? He confessed to occasional anxiety when Muslims board airplanes, and then went on to explain why stereotyping is wrong.

Larry Elder | October 28, 2010

Don't cry for Juan Williams. Lurking ahead are probably a seven-figure book deal, larger speaking fees, and loads more face time on television. NPR fired him, reconfirming the organization as a taxpayer-supported bastion of biased liberalism masquerading as "nonpartisan."

Cal Thomas | October 28, 2010

The great "what-if" looks like it is about to happen. With all of the media attention focused on Tuesday's midterm election, Republicans are faced with a greater task than winning a majority in the House of Representatives or getting at least close enough to a majority that they will be able to halt or slow the Obama agenda.

Debra J. Saunders | October 28, 2010

The real choice here is between jobs and magical thinking.

David Harsanyi | October 28, 2010

Who's going to argue with Sen. John Kerry's recent claim that the American electorate "doesn't always pay that much attention to what's going on?

Steve Chapman | October 28, 2010

This year's election will be exciting. Given the disenchantment of voters with President Obama and the Democratic Congress, there is every prospect that your Democratic representative will be shown the door. Given the generally anti-incumbent mood, there is every prospect that your Republican representative will be out on the street.

Emmett Tyrrell | October 28, 2010

Had the liberal press not encouraged the worst in the liberal politicians, the tea partyers might not have been aroused to their present pitch of civic-mindedness.

Howard Rich | October 28, 2010

A new Gallup poll shows that forty-six percent of Americans believe the federal government “poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens.”

Robert Knight | October 28, 2010

Never have so many politicians spoken so weirdly about something of which they know so little.

Bob Goldman | October 28, 2010

It doesn't take a whole lot of effort to stay unemployed these days.

Ross Mackenzie | October 28, 2010

Tuesday marks the mid-term elections. How will they turn out?

Wed, Oct 27, 2010

Ann Coulter | October 27, 2010

With the media sneering about the Tea Party candidates being a bunch of nuts, how about we take a look at some of the Democrats running this year?

Michael Reagan | October 27, 2010

There’s nothing new about the liberal alarm over the tea party’s reappearance in American politics. The last time they confronted it was when my dad Ronald Reagan ran for governor of California and then for president.

Jim Powell | October 27, 2010

A whiff of protectionism is in the air. Battered by the recession, many Americans are beginning to blame some of their woes on foreigners.

Marybeth Hicks | October 27, 2010

Ask any man, "Tell me about yourself," and he'll describe what he does for a living. Ask a woman, and she'll tell you about her relationships.

Brian Walsh | October 27, 2010

This year, Republicans are doing what it takes to win back a seat in a traditional Republican stronghold.

Rich Galen | October 27, 2010

One of the very few things about being me is that I get calls from pretty smart reporters asking me what I think about this or that.

Ed Feulner | October 27, 2010

Now is hardly the right time to be tying our hands on missile defense.

Jonah Goldberg | October 27, 2010

NPR should be defunded, but not because it's liberal. If NPR were right-wing (stop laughing!) it'd still be wrong for the federal government to be in the news business or to subsidize one set of views over another.

Michael Medved | October 27, 2010

Yes, character counts in politics, but it matters more in some elections than in others.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | October 27, 2010

As congressmen and senators face the electorate next week, millions of votes will turn on one simple question: Did he (she) take the pledge? The pledge to repeal Obamacare.

Thomas Sowell | October 27, 2010

Songs that are "golden oldies" have much less pleasant counterparts in politics-- namely, ideas and policies that have failed disastrously in the past but still keep coming back to be advocated and imposed by government.

Michelle Malkin | October 27, 2010

Denial isn't just a river in Egypt. It's the Democrats' coping mechanism for midterm election voter fraud.

John Stossel | October 27, 2010

When even notoriously risk-averse FDA scientists speak out against the BPA panic, the scaremongers must have gone absurdly far.

Walter E. Williams | October 27, 2010

Most people whom we elect to Congress are either ignorant of, have contempt for or are just plain stupid about the United States Constitution.

Brent Bozell | October 27, 2010

National Public Radio's firing of Juan Williams tells you all you need to know about the radical, and thoroughly intolerant, left.

Tony Blankley | October 27, 2010

It's largely going to be gridlock. President Obama will veto what he doesn't like. The Republican Congress will not have votes to override the vetoes.

Michael Gerson | October 27, 2010

WASHINGTON -- At some point in an election cycle, out of exhaustion and desperation, commentators turn to actual experts. So I recently posed several questions to Charlie Cook of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report.

Ben Shapiro | October 27, 2010

This week's Sports Illustrated featured an article on French soccer star Thierry Henry. What shocks Henry most about America? Whereas European fans routinely insult and slur black players, Americans don't.

Terry Jeffrey | October 27, 2010

First Lady Michelle Obama has called on Congress to create a $400 million-per-year program to encourage the establishment of supermarkets in places she calls "food deserts."

Austin Bay | October 27, 2010

The relationship between India, the developing giant, and the U.S., the developed giant, is maturing -- and Obama's presidential visit is part of this long, involved and delicate diplomatic process.

Jacob Sullum | October 27, 2010

In my neighborhood of Dallas, not far from where George and Laura Bush moved after he presided over eight years of big-government conservatism, I often see signs that say: "Had Enough? Vote Republican!"

Carrie Schwab Pomerantz | October 27, 2010

Dear Carrie: I'm 60 and will probably retire between age 66 and 70. I currently have $375,000 in IRA/401(k) funds and I'm adding 8 percent of my income annually.

Tue, Oct 26, 2010

Donald Lambro | October 26, 2010

There is one Republican policy he signed into law (besides welfare reform) that he never says anything about and that helped balance the budget.

Robert Knight | October 26, 2010

On Oct. 14, President Obama trotted out “born gay, always gay” rhetoric to underscore his aim to force the military to accept open homosexuality.

Armstrong Williams | October 26, 2010

The growing level of violent crime in the black American community is abhorrent.

Rebecca Hagelin | October 26, 2010

Halloween is around the corner, so you’re expecting a steady train of ghosts, Hollywood heroes, and princesses to knock on your door. Well, brace yourself. Princesses look different these days.

Jillian Bandes | October 26, 2010

Republican Congressional candidate Lou Barletta has a secret weapon: Betty Crocker. A team of bakers have carpet-bombed his campaign with lemon cake and peanut thumbprints.

Ken Blackwell | October 26, 2010

I’d like to see more respect for the Office of President. But I have one word of advice for the current occupant: RESPECT: It’s what you have to have in order to get.

Brian Walsh | October 26, 2010

Republican Jaime Herrera and Democrat Denny Heck both emerged from a crowded primary of six as the top two vote-getters.

Thomas Sowell | October 26, 2010

Classic songs from years past are sometimes referred to as "golden oldies." There are political fallacies that have been around for a long time as well.

Byron York | October 26, 2010

Assume the polls are correct and Republicans win control of the House, and perhaps even the Senate, in next month's elections.

Chuck Norris | October 26, 2010

The Congressional Budget Office just reported that in the past two years since President Barack Obama took office, federal spending is up 21.4 percent.

John Hawkins | October 26, 2010

For too long, conservatives have allowed the misogynistic party of Bill Clinton to portray itself as "the party of women."

Mike Adams | October 26, 2010

An open letter to the Fair Housing Center of West Michigan...

David Limbaugh | October 26, 2010

Riddle me this: How can anyone take Obama seriously when he says he will focus on the deficit in the next two years, seeing as his economic and social philosophies dictate that he continue to spend our money like a drunken floozy?

Mona Charen | October 26, 2010

I appeared on a public radio program, "On Point," this week with National Public Radio ombudsman Alicia Shepard and listened to her defend NPR's firing of Juan Williams.

Dennis Prager | October 26, 2010

Next Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2010 is not Election Day. It is Referendum Day.

Pat Buchanan | October 26, 2010

On June 30, 1972, two weeks after the Watergate burglars were taken into custody, Richard Nixon vetoed a congressional bill to double and treble federal funding for public broadcasting.

Debra J. Saunders | October 26, 2010

Here's a handy way to figure out which party expects to lose big in the next election: If its leaders are complaining about the unfairness of the other side raising buckets of money, that party is in trouble.

Humberto Fontova | October 26, 2010

They finally nabbed Al Capone—but for tax evasion. Legislation to de-fund The Corporation for Public Broadcasting will finally be introduced—but because of Juan Williams’ pink slip. Senator Jim DeMint explained his motivation, “Since 2001, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which funds programming for National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting Service, has received nearly $4 billion in taxpayer money..there’s simply no reason to force taxpayers to subsidize liberal programming they disagree with.”

Phyllis Schlafly | October 26, 2010

Barack Obama's pandering to the feminists makes him look like the suitor who is unwilling to face up to his beloved's announcing she will marry another man.

Bill Murchison | October 26, 2010

I didn't bother to read The Dallas Morning News' recent endorsement of Democrat Bill White for governor of Texas, partly because the piece was longer than a root canal appointment.

Mon, Oct 25, 2010

Tara Servatius | October 25, 2010

NPR CEO Vivian Schiller isn't just a cranky liberal who smacked Juan Williams down. She's one of the key architects of a plan to "reinvent journalism" through government takeover. The FCC's involvement in this got a lot of attention earlier this year, but few people realize the leading role Schiller has taken and how far she has gotten in building a national delivery system to replace for-profit news with government funded "public news."

John Andrews | October 25, 2010

Will the professorial crowd or the populists prevail? Does San Fran Nancy fall to Ohio John Boehner for Speaker of the House -- and in Colorado races, bookish John Hickenlooper to biker Tom Tancredo for governor, urbane Michael Bennet to bluejeans Ken Buck for senator, faculty-club Hart to gun-club Bosley for regent?

Rachel Marsden | October 25, 2010

With November midterms—one of the rare opportunities for revolution afforded in democracies—less than two weeks away, President Obama has amped up his smoke-and-mirrors show in addressing voters’ biggest concern: the economy. Time for a bit of unspinning.

Paul Kengor | October 25, 2010

The third in a series of weekly interviews with Dr. Paul Kengor, professor of political science and executive director of the Center for Vision and Values

Michael Brown | October 25, 2010

This past Wednesday, October 20, millions of Americans wore purple to show their support for GLBT youth in what has now been dubbed “Spirit Day.”

Raymond J. Keating | October 25, 2010

Pending proposals in Congress to hike energy taxes are having an insidious affect on America’s competitiveness.

Rich Tucker | October 25, 2010

George Clooney recently returned from a trip to Sudan and brief President Obama on the situation there. It’s wonderful that Americans such as Clooney want to help others, but how well do these Hollywood stars understand their own country?

Rich Galen | October 25, 2010

You know what? Pay no attention to the "DEMS ARE ON THE REBOUND" stories you may be reading in your local paper. They're not.

Brian Walsh | October 25, 2010

As one of the few Democrats in America who is actively campaign on their voting record, Democrat Tom Perriello has made his votes for the Pelosi/Obama agenda a cornerstone of his campaign in Virginia’s Fifth Congressional District.

Terry Paulson | October 25, 2010

The playing field that the winning politicians will face is daunting. Before the victors are even seated, the current players will be challenged to pass austere budgets on the federal and state level.

Bruce Bialosky | October 25, 2010

This election will determine whether we surrender to the Washington oligarchy and the media elites or we reassert the values that have been the shining hallmark of this great country for over 200 years.

Mike Adams | October 25, 2010

What one needs to turn one’s life around is radical, bold action that involves taking risks and experiencing extreme discomfort.

Joseph C. Phillips | October 25, 2010

I tend to share the negative assessment that airport security is not firing on all cylinders.

Michael Barone | October 25, 2010

It's an insistence that the Obama Democrats' policies would strangle freedoms and choke off growth. You may disagree. But if so, it looks like you're in the minority this year.

Star Parker | October 25, 2010

Ginni Thomas’s call to Anita Hill has, not surprisingly, provoked columns and blogging speculating what motivated the call, some wanting to relive those hearings of 20 years ago.

Lurita Doan | October 25, 2010

American college student activists, long seen as a bellwether for populist outrage, are missing in action. They are not staging protests concerning political, social and financial issues which affect them more directly and more profoundly than another other generation of Americans.

Joseph C. Phillips | October 25, 2010

It is little wonder that polls consistently find that the TSA is the most hated U.S. government agency, even more despised than the Internal Revenue Service.

Katie Gage | October 25, 2010

As we approach Election Day, it’s worthwhile to reflect on what has taken place over the course of the last two years.

Martha Montelongo | October 25, 2010

As Californians head to the polls November 2, they should ponder very carefully whether they really want, and can really afford, another six years of Barbara Boxer.

Marvin Olasky | October 24, 2010

What's healthcare like for the poor? I've visited low-cost Christian health clinics in New Jersey, Illinois, Florida, Mississippi, and other states, but my experience with big city emergency rooms was mediated through ER, Grey's Anatomy, and similar fantasies—or that's how I saw them.

Brian Walsh | October 24, 2010

One of the most hotly contested races in the country lies in the northern plains: North Dakota’s At-large Congressional District.

Austin Hill | October 24, 2010

Obamanomics has put the economy in a state of uncertainty and chaos, and it penalizes hardworking, productive people who play by the rules.

David Stokes | October 24, 2010

The firing of Juan Williams by National Public Radio (NPR), alleging that he was guilty of bigotry during a recent appearance on Bill O’Reilly’s FoxNews Channel television program, is another case of political correctness mixed with demagoguery run amuck.

Salena Zito | October 24, 2010

A brisk walk down Old Burial Hill, where many young Revolutionary War soldiers rest, and a right turn onto Orne Street lead you to the oddest-shaped house imaginable.

Debra J. Saunders | October 24, 2010

"Political correctness can lead to some kind of paralysis, where you don't address reality," Juan Williams observed rather prophetically on Bill O'Reilly's show Monday night.

Steve Chapman | October 24, 2010

At a campaign rally the other day, President Obama decried those who say "you can't overcome the cynicism of politics. ..." But here's the odd thing: The only people you hear taking that view are in the White House.

Wayne Grudem | October 24, 2010

An important moral voice in American public life was muzzled in 1954, and we are still paying the price.

Ken Connor | October 24, 2010

Let's have a robust discussion about whether the tenets of Islam are compatible with the tenets of democracy. The loss of our liberty is too high a price to pay for the sake of political correctness.

Paul Jacob | October 24, 2010

Our leaders are running scared. Their economic policies make no sense, but sensible policies would put them out of business. So they run. Huffing and puffing.

Kevin McCullough | October 24, 2010

NPR should replace Schiller
