Kevin McCullough | November 21, 2010

President Obama and the TSA have a fundamental problem. They treat all Americans as though we are all terrorists.

Sat, Nov 20, 2010

Elisabeth Meinecke | November 20, 2010

Speaking to the Federalist Society Friday, Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) outlined both his view of the presidency and what he feels are the job’s constitutional parameters. And he contrasted those views with the actions of the current administration.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | November 20, 2010

s Barack Obama a socialist? A Muslim? Anti-American? Pro-Palestinian? Or just a man who is right sometimes and wrong most of the time? Bill O'Reilly opts for the second option in his new book, "Pinheads and Patriots."

Kathryn Lopez | November 20, 2010

There is gratitude for those who have been true trailblazers in the fight for truth and justice.

Nicole Neily | November 20, 2010

All eyes are back on Congress as the lame duck session continues.  One topic on everyone’s mind: extending the Bush tax cuts.  In fact, the showdown over the cuts is likely to be one of the biggest policy fights of President Obama’s term to date.

Bobby Schindler | November 20, 2010

No major media outlets or political pundits have revisited Terri’s case since her death in 2005.

Larry Dever | November 20, 2010

Hollywood’s efforts to convince us that illegal immigration is not a crime have jumped the shark.  It seems FX Cable Television Network is working on a series in which the main character is a heroic private investigator.  Oh, and he also happens to be an illegal immigrant.

Caroline Glick | November 19, 2010

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton must have given Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu quite a reception. Otherwise it is hard to understand what possessed him to accept the deal he accepted when he met with her last week.

Hans Labohm | November 19, 2010

It’s not the climate, but the tide of opinion that’s changing in Europe and around the globe.

Janet M. LaRue | November 19, 2010

Republicans are giddy about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi becoming Minority Leader of House Democrats. It was her legislative agenda that got the Dems hammered in the election.

Elisabeth Meinecke | November 19, 2010

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) has been working for over 18 months to moderate the TSA’s use of the new body scanners that have caused privacy concerns with their explicit images.

Rich Galen | November 19, 2010

One of the really nice things about doing what I do for as long as I've done it, is watching the growth and success of people I first met years ago.

Armstrong Williams | November 19, 2010

Lisa Murkowski had to spend millions of dollars and doled out hundreds of promises that could eventually cost American taxpayers billions to retain her Senate seat.

Katie Pavlich | November 19, 2010

Cap and trade may not be dead. President Obama plans to be hiding an energy price hike in the tax code.

Michelle Malkin | November 19, 2010

America is in debt past its eyeballs. Unemployment remains stuck near double digits. So what's one of the Obama administration's top domestic policy agenda items this month? Combating distracted drivers.

Brent Bozell | November 19, 2010

Parents will face an entirely new front in the never-ending technological assault on the popular culture. As more and more technology-savvy children get in the routine of watching television online, can parents feel rely on technological help in screening out graphic sex or violence?

David Limbaugh | November 19, 2010

While we focus our scrutiny on President Obama's domestic agenda nightmare, we'd best not take our eyes off another big ball: Obama's frantic effort to get the New START ratified during the Senate's lame-duck session.

Mona Charen | November 19, 2010

Palin has many strengths. But as a presidential candidate? Someone to convince critical independent voters that Republicans can govern successfully? Absolutely not.

Oliver North | November 19, 2010

Thanks to our media's infatuation with the rich and famous, we now know more about a British prince's fiancee than we do about one of our bravest and brightest countrymen.

Pat Buchanan | November 19, 2010

Beijing is also building rockets, submarines and surface fleets to extend her dominance out to the third chain of islands, enabling the People's Liberation Army to strike U.S. carriers and bases as far away as Guam.

Suzanne Fields | November 19, 2010

Radical feminists are fussy, as usual, and now they're fidgety, too. They don't know how to enjoy success. They're restless, like combat veterans who, having returned home to peace, keep fighting old battles.

David Harsanyi | November 19, 2010

As you've probably heard, there's quite a bit of hubbub surrounding the news that the administration's car company has gone public. Another imaginary victory.

Jillian Bandes | November 19, 2010

The legal arguments surrounding the constitutionality of the health care debate are nuanced, and at the center of the debate is whether Congress can regulate a citizen’s inactivity.

Linda Chavez | November 19, 2010

Not since the infamous acquittal of O.J. Simpson has the American jury system so utterly failed as it did this week in acquitting on all but one charge former Guantanamo detainee Ahmed Ghailani.

Robert Knight | November 19, 2010

The campaign to criminalize America's response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks continues apace.

Thu, Nov 18, 2010

Donald Lambro | November 18, 2010

A post-election "bury the hatchet" meeting with President Obama and Republican and Democratic leaders was abruptly postponed this week. Neither side is ready to bury it.

Hugh Hewitt | November 18, 2010

Outrage is growing at the intersection of ideology and incompetence that is the jury's collapse in the trial of Ahmed Ghailani, acquitted in the murders of 224 innocents.

Cliff May | November 18, 2010

Should a lame-duck Congress ratify a treaty with Russia? Should the Tea Party should weigh in?

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | November 18, 2010

There is one thing that corporate finance likes: stability. This allows businesses to plan, to hire and to create contracts.

Victor Davis Hanson | November 18, 2010

Barack Obama remains fixated by George W. Bush. For nearly two years, President Obama and his team have prefaced their explanations for the tough economy, tough finances and tough situation abroad with a "Bush did it" chorus. Apparently, they believed that most of our problems, here and abroad, either started with George W. Bush, or at least would not transcend him.

Michael Barone | November 18, 2010

QE2 seems a poor match with the incoming Congress -- and with the heads of many of the world's other leading economic powers. Can the Fed persist in a policy that has stirred such scathing criticism?

Larry Elder | November 18, 2010

No Democratic presidential candidate has won the "white vote" since 1964.

Cal Thomas | November 18, 2010

A lot must change before anything approaching "peace" between Palestinians and Israelis occurs. Israel has changed and given enough.

Jillian Bandes | November 18, 2010

It’s worse than your kids at the dinner table: the battle over food safety has gotten worse after the Senate voted to move forward on the bill Wednesday.

Paul Driessen | November 18, 2010

“We the People” just booted a boatload of spendthrifts out of Congress, after they helped engineer a $1.3 trillion deficit on America’s FY-2010 budget and balloon our cumulative national debt to $13.7 trillion. Unfortunately, renewable fuel lobbyists will try to use the lame duck session to perpetuate the special treatment.

Steve Chapman | November 18, 2010

Maybe it's time to admit that Wrigley can't go on forever. That's the obvious conclusion to draw from the organization's request for taxpayers to "invest" up to $300 million in the park.

Emmett Tyrrell | November 18, 2010

The millions of American travelers who are utterly insouciant to a high-tech scan or even a pat-down are ignored.

Ross Mackenzie | November 18, 2010

Given their miserable Nov. 2 record, it's difficult to understand why Democrats don't demand the departure from party posts of Democratic National Chairman Tim Kaine and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Douglas MacKinnon | November 18, 2010

What is it about Palin that sends wealthy, pampered, and elitist women like Parker and Maureen Dowd over the edge? Could it be something as simple as guilt?

Marvin Olasky | November 18, 2010

If students don't learn, teachers don't eat.

Howard Rich | November 18, 2010

Republicans looking for a modus operandi in Washington next year could do a lot worse than “give us gridlock.”

Robert Scott | November 18, 2010

Despite Jon Stewart’s attempt to restore sanity recently, Americans showed up at the polls and hopped on the crazy train, overwhelmingly supporting Republican candidates across the country.

Wed, Nov 17, 2010

Ann Coulter | November 17, 2010

It is becoming increasingly obvious that we need to keep the government as far away from airport security as possible, and not only because Janet Napolitano did her graduate work in North Korea.

Michael Medved | November 17, 2010

Republican victories in the 2010 elections raise a nagging and uncomfortable question: why the violent pendulum swings in our politics?

Michelle Malkin | November 17, 2010

More than one million Americans have escaped the clutches of the Democrats' destructive federal health care law. Lucky them.

John Stossel | November 17, 2010

It's logical to think that grass-fed steers might be better for the environment, but so often what sounds logical is just wrong.

Walter E. Williams | November 17, 2010

Let's assume that each of our 535 congressmen cares about the destructive impact of deficits and debt on the future of our country.

Brent Bozell | November 17, 2010

Nobody expected that George W. Bush's book, "Decision Points," was going to compare to the memoirs of Ulysses Grant.

Jonah Goldberg | November 17, 2010

Should Obama pull a Clinton? This has been a burning question inside the Beltway ever since the polls showed the Great Shellacking bearing down on the White House.

Tony Blankley | November 17, 2010

I didn't see a single senior player express the desire to take the debt commission report as an opportunity to immediately throw all our effort into a workable proposal.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | November 17, 2010

As the Senate Republican Conference moves to ban earmarking by the chamber's Republicans, the next question arises: What about the House?

Terry Jeffrey | November 17, 2010

Examination of the actual voting records of professional politicians who called themselves "fiscal conservatives" invariably produced copious evidence they were anything but conservative.

Ben Shapiro | November 17, 2010

Are Barack Obama's poll numbers up, or is Janet Napolitano just happy to see us?

David Harsanyi | November 17, 2010

The White House says it has a "messaging" problem when it comes to health care reform -- as in a "you're-not-buying-our-message" problem.

Jillian Bandes | November 17, 2010

A bill up for consideration in the Senate today would update food safety regulations for the first time since the 1930’s.

Austin Bay | November 17, 2010

When Brazil and Turkey tried to negotiate a complex uranium swap with Iran this past summer, international media focused on Turkey's diplomatic role.

Jacob Sullum | November 17, 2010

Such abuse of the grand jury process turns what is supposed to be a bulwark against arbitrary government power into an instrument of repression.

Ed Feulner | November 17, 2010

Ask any 10 voters what motivated them to go to the polls, and you'll probably get 10 different answers.

Joel Mowbray | November 17, 2010

Israelis are not accustomed to having so much going so well for their tiny country - and no one seems to expect it to last.

Marybeth Hicks | November 17, 2010

OK moms and dads, let's do a quick survey to see how well you're supervising your kids' media consumption.

Ami Horowitz | November 17, 2010

During the course making my movie U.N.Me (www.theunmovie.com) I have come across countless acts of absurd behavior by the U.N. This week gives us yet another shining example of such farce. The United Nations recently held an election for its new women’s rights group called, unimaginatively, U.N. Women, which was born from the merger of four other U.N. groups dedicated to women’s rights. (Perhaps the real story should be that the famously turgid bureaucracy of the U.N actually slimmed something down).

Carrie Schwab Pomerantz | November 17, 2010

Dear Carrie: Due to the popularity of exchange-traded funds, will traditional mutual funds become an investment vehicle of the past -- will they be the dinosaurs of the investing world?

Tue, Nov 16, 2010

Donald Lambro | November 16, 2010

The growing backlash against Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke's second quantitative easing, dubbed QE2, is raising long overdue complaints about its role in economic policymaking.

Paul Greenberg | November 16, 2010

Credit for best timing in this year's midterm elections goes to Rahm Emanuel.

Andrew Tallman | November 16, 2010

The cultural shift on contraception and abortion (both universally despised just 60 years ago but now widely accepted) should serve as an illustration of what would happen if currently illicit behaviors were decriminalized.

Humberto Fontova | November 16, 2010

Those 638 (at last Castro count and dutiful MSM dissemination) CIA assassination attempts against Fidel Castro have inspired a video game titled Call of Duty: Black Opps that racked up $360 million in its first day on sale.

Caroline Glick | November 16, 2010

Two weeks ago, a Palestinian from Bethlehem was arrested by the U.S.-financed and trained Palestinian Authority security forces. He was charged with "carrying out commercial transactions with residents of a hostile state."

Armstrong Williams | November 16, 2010

When times were good, it was easy for America to overlook the effects of China’s currency manipulation.

Romina Boccia | November 16, 2010

While the dire state of the economy and out-of-control public spending were frontrunners in motivating voters to make their voices heard, the Democrats' push for “cap-and-trade” legislation followed closely behind.

Thomas Sowell | November 16, 2010

Another deficit reduction commission has now made its recommendations. My own recommendation for dealing with deficits would include stopping the appointment of deficit reduction commissions.

George W. Bush | November 16, 2010

"Mr. President, we are witnessing a financial panic." Those were troubling words coming from Ben Bernanke, the mild-mannered chairman of the Federal Reserve, who was seated across from me in the Roosevelt Room.

Guy Benson | November 16, 2010

Two conservative senators discussed Senate Republicans’ scheduled vote on a two-year earmarks moratorium just minutes before Republican Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell announced his support for the measure.

Byron York | November 16, 2010

President Obama recently fretted that our politics has become so rough-and-tumble that "facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time."

Chuck Norris | November 16, 2010

Every week, we receive more bad news about the American economy. Last week was no exception.

John Hawkins | November 16, 2010

Let's start off with what has become a bit of conservative heresy these days: I don't think it's always a bad idea to raise taxes.

David Limbaugh | November 16, 2010

President Obama's fiercest obstacles as chief executive are neither recalcitrant Republicans nor the increasing complexity and demands of the job; they are his ideology and his political allegiances.

Mona Charen | November 16, 2010

What are we to make of Nancy Pelosi's home town's measure to ban Happy Meals?

Cal Thomas | November 16, 2010

Like the Democrats' health care "reform" measure, the Debt Commission's initial recommendations, which will be followed by the full report Dec. 1 contains some good ideas, but the overall template remains flawed because it fails to address the main problem, which is government that encroaches on individual liberty, personal responsibility and living within one's means.

Dennis Prager | November 16, 2010

I recently devoted my biweekly column in the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles to analyzing why most Jews believe that people are basically good despite the fact that this belief is neither rational nor Jewish.

Pat Buchanan | November 16, 2010

Other than being the highest-profile Republican victims of Tea Party candidates, what do Lisa Murkowski, Mike Castle, Charlie Crist and Arlen Specter have in common?

Michael Gerson | November 16, 2010

Just to be on the safe side, voters in Oklahoma this month overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment that prevents the Talibanization of the Sooner State.

Paul Greenberg | November 16, 2010

Ben Bernanke is proving a fitting successor to Alan Greenspan as chairman of the Federal Reserve System. Unfortunately.

Phyllis Schlafly | November 16, 2010

Women didn't vote for Democratic candidates in the November election in the numbers expected, so President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid want to woo them back into the fold by passing the Paycheck Fairness Act (PFA) in the lame duck session.

Bill Murchison | November 16, 2010

The flap over whether to extend present tax rates for the rich finds its center in a cultural proposition: Liberals, including rich liberals, either don't like the rich or feel obliged to pretend they don't.

Douglas MacKinnon | November 16, 2010

With the results of the mid-term election still fresh in our minds, the question needs to be asked again. That being, is Barack Obama the Messiah?

Mon, Nov 15, 2010

Paul Kengor | November 15, 2010

The final installment in a series of weekly interviews with Dr. Paul Kengor on his latest book, "Dupes: How America’s Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century."

Roger Chapin | November 15, 2010

The bottom line is no matter whether you’re a Republican or Democrat, that this is a time of grave and unprecedented danger to our nation.

Rachel Marsden | November 15, 2010

So the main focus of the G20 consisted of everyone else asking their Chinese dad if he could please maybe do his job better while putting their hands out for a favor.

Laura Hollis | November 15, 2010

Not for the first time, I have found myself thinking, if only Obama had some business experience.

Ami Horowitz | November 15, 2010

The United Nations recently held an election for its new women’s rights group called, unimaginatively, U.N. Women, which was born from the merger of four other U.N. groups dedicated to women’s rights.

Rich Galen | November 15, 2010

President Obama's trip was not quite as big a shellacking as the mid-term elections earlier this month, but it wasn't far behind.

Michael Barone | November 15, 2010

Contrary to stereotype, George W. Bush admits some serious errors up front. He failed to see the "house of cards" in the financial sector that led to the crisis. He should have tackled immigration. His response to Katrina was delayed.

Star Parker | November 15, 2010

Almost two years ago, a new Democrat administration and congress took control of Washington. They immediately sent out invitations to the American people.

Mike Adams | November 15, 2010

What a glorious day in the UNC system!

Lurita Doan | November 15, 2010

The all-time best government employee has to be Captain James T. Kirk, who, while commanding the Starship Enterprise, saved the universe from certain destruction each week.  His motto was simple:”to boldly go where no man has gone before.”  Lately, our federal government is echoing a much different philosophy.  Federal agencies seem to stray from their primary mission, finding new and increasingly mediocre tasks to perform.  They are boldly going nowhere.

Bruce Bialosky | November 15, 2010

In November, 2006 things looked bleak for California Republicans. Governor Schwarzenegger had won re-election, but he had long since abandoned his economic policies of 2003, and by soaking up all the available political money, he was no help to any other GOP candidate. The only other statewide office in Republican hands was the Insurance Commissioner.

Frank Gaffney | November 15, 2010

President Obama has set the stage for an acrimonious relationship with the newly elected Senators of the 112th Congress. As they come to Washington this week for freshman orientation, his welcome message amounts to: "I want to disenfranchise you."

Sun, Nov 14, 2010

Jeff Jacoby | November 14, 2010

It has become an annual tradition: The days grow shorter, the holidays approach, and the American Humanist Association rolls out an ad campaign promoting atheism and disparaging religion.

Salena Zito | November 14, 2010

Since late September, when polls made clear Boehner would be the next House Speaker, scores of fresh press biographies have poured out of Cincinnati, trying to define the man who is about to become next in line to the presidency after the vice president.

Guy Benson | November 14, 2010

A heated war of words has broken out between two conservative groups over conflicting GOP freshmen orientation events scheduled for Sunday afternoon.

Austin Hill | November 14, 2010

It’s not that fewer Americans are searching for work. There are, to put it simply, less of us who want to work and to produce.

Steve Chapman | November 14, 2010

Jennifer Aniston is going to think twice before flying commercial.

Ken Connor | November 14, 2010

With great power comes great responsibility.  When things go well, the person in power tends to get the credit, and when they go poorly, that same person will bear the brunt of the nation's outrage.  Nowhere does this maxim ring more true than in Washington, D.C, and this election cycle the American people sent a clear message to the party in power:  We reject your policies and your agenda, and we hold you responsible for the mess you've created.

Marjorie Dannenfelser | November 14, 2010

At the Susan B. Anthony List, we have a clear mission: to advance pro-life women as political leaders and to elect and preserve pro-life candidates, Republicans and Democrats alike, who will not subordinate the sanctity of life to any other issue, whether that issue is health care reform, bankruptcy reform or deficit reductions.

Paul Jacob | November 14, 2010

Priorities. The lack of which have caused our current mess. Going forward, a lack of priorities will also fail to clean up that mess.
