Doug Giles | November 13, 2010

The details surrounding the July 23, 2007 murders of the Petit family in Connecticut are about as grisly as the hordes of hell can concoct.

Katie Pavlich | November 13, 2010

When we think of reality show, we think trashy housewives and serial dating, but this is not your typical reality show. Instead, Sarah Palin's Alaska is a unique look into faith, family, love, strong American values and the natural beauty Alaska has to offer.

Katie Gage | November 13, 2010

The resounding message from this election was that the small business community matters and voters will not tolerate an agenda that threatens its viability or existence.

Ken Blackwell | November 13, 2010

Fiscal conservatives like Reps. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Tom Graves (R-G.A.) are gaining momentum within the Republican caucus as exactly the type of principled leaders needed to bring fiscal sanity to the appropriations committee.

Rachel Marsden | November 13, 2010

Top CEO business women Carla Fiorina and Meg Whitman both crashed and burned in last week’s midterm elections—Fiorina running for a Senate seat in California and Whitman for the governorship of the same state. What happened? And more broadly, why do stars in the business world so often have difficulty getting elected?

Carl Horowitz | November 13, 2010

Timothy Pigford’s gift keeps on giving.  Taxpayers, unfortunately, aren’t likely to be in such a giving mood.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) last month announced a $760 million settlement of a civil suit in which American Indian farmers and ranchers claimed discrimination at the hands of USDA program administrators.  The agreement follows similar out-of-court settlements this year with black and Hispanic plaintiff-farmers.

Janice Shaw Crouse | November 13, 2010

President Obama told students in India that the 2010 election “requires me to make some midcourse corrections and adjustments,” but Americans are wondering whether he really understands that voters rejected his policies in the early-November mid-term elections.  Instead of acknowledging that his policies are behind the defeat, the president blames “faulty communication,” as though the election massacre were just a public relations miscue.

Caroline Glick | November 12, 2010

Yesterday was Veteran's Day which used to be known as Armistice Day in honor of the agreement to stop shooting during, and thus effectively ending, World War I.

Michelle Malkin | November 12, 2010

Energy czar Carol Browner needs to go the way of disgraced green jobs czar Van Jones: under the bus and stripped of her unbridled power to destroy jobs and lives in the name of saving the planet. ASAP.

Brent Bozell | November 12, 2010

When it comes to the increasing sex, violence and profanity in entertainment media, the social libertines are indifferent. They insist that children will hardly be warped or ruined by the media they consume. They chortle at the paranoia of Hollywood critics.

David Limbaugh | November 12, 2010

If preliminary rumblings from the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform's upcoming report are accurate, I'm afraid the conservative agenda might be against the ropes again.

Mona Charen | November 12, 2010

Obamacare is a train wreck of a law. We cannot rely on the courts to reverse it. The only hope for sensible policy, both for fiscal and physical health, is repeal.

Ken Blackwell | November 12, 2010

With his remarks in Jakarta, Indonesia, President Obama made history once again. Sadly, it’s a most unenviable title.

The world's most famous teleprompter reader has lost his audience.

Pat Buchanan | November 12, 2010

If it is the first responsibility of the Federal Reserve to protect the dollars that Americans earn and save, is it not dereliction of duty for the Fed to pursue a policy to bleed value from those dollars?

Michael Gerson | November 12, 2010

Following the midterm elections, attention understandably focused on those parts of the South and Midwest where the Obama coalition collapsed.

Debra J. Saunders | November 12, 2010

For Clarence Aaron, Barack Obama's failure to act must seem unspeakably cold. In 1993, Aaron was sentenced to life without parole for a first-time nonviolent federal drug offense.

For the past week, conservatives have been bellyaching that the new class of Republicans won’t do much of anything.

Linda Chavez | November 12, 2010

The Obama administration thinks it knows best how to run health care, the banks, and the auto industry, so why not post-secondary education?

Matt Towery | November 12, 2010

I'll give President Obama a bit of credit for signaling that he will abandon temporarily one aspect of his crazy economic philosophy, best termed "Obamanomics. "

Paul Driessen | November 11, 2010

Obama has the ultimate presidential weapon, the veto, but he has also signaled that he does not want to be the one blamed for letting all the tax rates rise on low-, middle- and upper-income Americans.

Cliff May | November 11, 2010

What too many in the media have refused to recognize is that Tea Party members are not calling for a revolution – they’re calling for a restoration.

Hugh Hewitt | November 11, 2010

Voters sent a message to the president, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid that really could not be misunderstood, but this week all three gave every indication of not caring what voters thought.

Guy Benson | November 11, 2010

In a political analysis written more than a month before the midterm elections, I predicted that Republicans would “run up the score” in Big Ten country.

Victor Davis Hanson | November 11, 2010

Cutting the borrowing and spending is inevitable if America is to avoid a Greece-like implosion.

Michael Barone | November 11, 2010

Most of the freshmen this year ran decrying the spending of Republican as well as Democratic Congresses and promising to do better. Boehner, who has never had an earmark, says the same thing.

Larry Elder | November 11, 2010

How much of the "Sarah Palin is not ready for prime time" criticism is sincere? When the harping comes from the left, it's difficult to take it seriously.

Michael Reagan | November 11, 2010

We must reclaim California and do it now. If we fail, California will become the Greece of the new world.

Cal Thomas | November 11, 2010

If MSNBC were consistent, Keith Olbermann would not have been the only on-air personality disciplined for making political contributions.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | November 11, 2010

In recent years, 23 states have revised their laws to let more onetime criminals take part in this ritual of democracy, and the changes have had a noticeable effect.

Ed Feulner | November 11, 2010

More needs to be done to get our nation back on the right track, but these actions are a good start. ...

Emmett Tyrrell | November 11, 2010

Good to see you again, Mr. President.

Ann Coulter | November 10, 2010

True, Reagan tied with Carter for the youth vote in 1980 and stole younger voters from Mondale in 1984, but other than that, young voters have consistently embarrassed themselves.

Paul Greenberg | November 10, 2010

You knew it was going to be an exhilarating election night when among the early victors in Florida was a retired lieutenant colonel by the name of Allen West.

Frank Gaffney | November 10, 2010

President Obama's pasha-like excursion to India and other Asian nations this month at the Pentagon's expensecome at a time when the defense budget is being dramatically cut.

Rich Galen | November 10, 2010

If I were bent on causing disruption in foreign countries and had unlimited funds to do it (a working definition of the CIA) here's what I would have concocted for President Obama's overseas trip.

Marybeth Hicks | November 10, 2010

It turns out school lunches are becoming just another avenue to justify government overreach.

John Stossel | November 10, 2010

This week, I held a bake sale -- a racist bake sale.

Walter E. Williams | November 10, 2010

At the recent Group of 20 (G 20) meeting, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner called upon the largest industrialized economies to get their current account balance -- whether a surplus or a deficit -- below 4 percent of their gross domestic product by 2015.

Brent Bozell | November 10, 2010

Liberal Democrats show no signs of reading their washout at the polls as a reason to shift to the center.

Jonah Goldberg | November 10, 2010

Ultimately, it's not that liberals don't believe in American exceptionalism so much as they believe it is holding America back, which might explain why they're lashing out at the people who want to keep it exceptional.

Ashley Herzog | November 10, 2010

Death penalty opponents spend more time bleating for monstrous criminals than for their victims.

Tony Blankley | November 10, 2010

As foreign events grow ever more threatening, the view of the GOP becomes central to the range of political options that President Obama has.

Michael Medved | November 10, 2010

It’s true that the November elections brought prominent winners in both parties, but the contrast between Democratic and Republican victors is highly revealing.

Michael Gerson | November 10, 2010

WASHINGTON -- Foreign policy was so irrelevant in the midterm election that the first sentence of this column -- unwisely beginning with the words "foreign policy" -- is likely to weed out many readers looking for juicier bits of election reaction.

Terry Jeffrey | November 10, 2010

In an Oct. 28 White House briefing, Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes set the stage for Obama's Indonesian trip by announcing that the president would first visit the Istiqlal Mosque.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | November 10, 2010

Last week’s election results were historic.

Donald Lambro | November 10, 2010

Paul Kengor | November 09, 2010

If you haven’t talked to a World War II veteran yet, it’s time to politely ask a few questions. With Veterans Day upon us, you have the perfect excuse.

Rebecca Hagelin | November 09, 2010

Our children's hearts are the poorer for it.

Armstrong Williams | November 09, 2010

President Obama has made it clear that he will not tack to the center a la Bill Clinton following 1994’s bloodbath, so we can expect a lot of gridlock between him and Congress.

Cal Thomas | November 09, 2010

Rep.-elect Bill Huizenga speaks from experience: When he was a member of the Michigan legislature, Republicans went from minority to majority and Democrats kept the person who had been speaker as minority leader.

John Hawkins | November 09, 2010

Here are the extremely lame excuses that seem to keep cropping up again and again to explain the Democrats' defeat Tuesday.

Thomas Sowell | November 09, 2010

Whenever the party that controls the White House does not also control Capitol Hill, political pundits worry that there will be "gridlock" in Washington, so that the government cannot solve the nation's problems.

Byron York | November 09, 2010

Here's Barack Obama's problem when it comes to dealing with newly elected Republican members of Congress.

David Limbaugh | November 09, 2010

I don't believe Obama has either the inclination to move or the political skills to successfully pretend to move to the center or "triangulate."

Mona Charen | November 09, 2010

Just when you think Obama has suffered enough, he short-circuits your pity.

Dennis Prager | November 09, 2010

Imagine if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were a Republican.

Phyllis Schlafly | November 09, 2010

The most important decision the voters made on Nov. 2 may turn out to be Iowa sending out to pasture three state supreme court judges who had voted to make same-sex marriage constitutional, overriding the wishes of the people in Iowa and their elected representatives.

You go to sleep in a blue state and, next morning, wake up in a red one, or at least one that looks decidedly purplish by dawn's early light.

Rich Tucker | November 08, 2010

Professional entertainers know it’s a good policy to always leave an audience wanting more. Too bad major league baseball hasn’t learned that lesson.

Ken Blackwell | November 08, 2010

A balanced budget amendment to the Constitution is an idea whose time has come.

Matt Patterson | November 08, 2010

Michael Barone | November 08, 2010

Let's try to put some metrics on last Tuesday's historic election. Two years ago, the popular vote for House of Representatives was 54 percent Democratic and 43 percent Republican.

Star Parker | November 08, 2010

Will the NAACP be celebrating the arrival of two new black faces to the U.S. House of Representatives?

Bruce Bialosky | November 08, 2010

November 8, 1994, was a monumental day in my life. It was up there with my wedding, the birth of my children, and being selected as the MVP of my Little League championship team. Not since I was a age of one ad the Congress of the United States been in Republican hands. And yet, November 2, 2010, was even more significant than that magnificent day sixteen years before: It was a clear repudiation of the left-wing policies that have been imposed upon the American people by the Democratic Party over the last four years.

Jillian Bandes | November 08, 2010

Fiscal conservatives had some big wins last Tuesday, but their post-election statements indicate that they might not mean what they say. Conservatives can't sit back and relax.

Austin Hill | November 07, 2010

After less than two years in office, Barack Obama has successfully forced his way into the position of “de facto CEO” over huge chunks of the economy.

David Stokes | November 07, 2010

Last Tuesday, the distant thunder so long on America’s political horizon erupted in a local and national roar. A part of the nation’s body politic often referred to as a silent majority, broke its silence. Beyond mere red state/blue state dynamics, what we’ve witnessed is the coming of age of a force that has stirred only on occasion in the past.

Salena Zito | November 07, 2010

Public health puritans, appalled at the spread of excess weight, think the government should forcefully guide our dining choices.

Ken Connor | November 07, 2010

The results are in, and  in the words of former President George W. Bush, it was a thumping.  What this nation witnessed on November 2nd was not merely a wave election, it was a tsunami.  The obvious  beneficiary of the voter's frustration this time around was the GOP, but as many have emphasized, it would be a huge mistake to interpret the outcome of this election as a mandate for the Republican establishment to carry on with business as usual.

Paul Jacob | November 07, 2010

It is time, now, to bury the hysterical over-reactions of mainstream opinion.
