Larry Kudlow | February 05, 2011

The January employment report was a complete snow job. Abominable winter blizzards across the country caused 886,000 workers to report “not at work due to bad weather,” according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This is 600,000 more than the normal 300,000 not at work for the average January of the past decade.

Ken Blackwell | February 05, 2011

We’re about to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s birth. As much as I would like to praise that great and good man, I have to wonder what he would do about Egypt?

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | February 05, 2011

I know we predicted Republican Senate control in 2010. But this time -- honest -- we are going to win!

Kathryn Lopez | February 05, 2011

When Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana decided to announce recently that he isn't going to run for the Republican nomination for president -- and instead is likely to run for governor of his state -- you would have thought, from the reaction in some quarters, that he had committed the ultimate act of betrayal.

Paul Greenberg | February 05, 2011

Like all modern revolutions since the fashion was introduced in Paris, events in Egypt proceed a la francaise: in a series of successive shocks from right to left till the pendulum swings as far as it can, trembles for an uncertain moment (the Reign of Terror), and then swings back toward autocracy.

Kyle Olson | February 05, 2011

Perhaps you’ve heard about Kelley Williams-Bolar, the Ohio mother who was recently tried and convicted for falsifying residency records so her daughters could attend a better school where they would receive a quality education.

Caroline Glick | February 04, 2011

Whether they are democrats or autocrats, we fully expect they will continue to hate us.

Robert Knight | February 04, 2011

We knew things weren’t good, but nearly one seventh of all Americans on food stamps? Forty-three million people?

Rich Galen | February 04, 2011

It wasn't exactly under the cover of darkness, but it was under the cover of the ongoing drama in Egypt that the U.S. Senate attempted a vote on repealing Obamacare.

David Harsanyi | February 04, 2011

If the recent media coverage of the Middle East has taught the American public one thing, it's this: All journalists are, evidently, also qualified Egyptologists.

Oliver North | February 04, 2011

When Barack Obama went to Cairo in June 2009, he was lauded for seeking "a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world."

Michelle Malkin | February 04, 2011

Oops, they did it again. President Obama's grabby-handed environmental bureaucrats have earned yet another spanking from the federal judiciary over their "determined disregard" of the rule of law.

Brent Bozell | February 04, 2011

It seems rather ironic that Hollywood doesn't want to make movies about Ronald Reagan. Perhaps it's because virtually no one in the industry can stand his belief system.

Jonah Goldberg | February 04, 2011

Over the last decade or so, as the giants of the founding generation of modern American conservatism have died, each has been rehabilitated into a gentleman-statesman of a bygone era of conservative decency and open-mindedness.

David Limbaugh | February 04, 2011

Is there anything about the Obama administration that doesn't reek of discriminatory application and enforcement of laws and the arbitrary and capricious abuse of power?

Mona Charen | February 04, 2011

In a suit filed in federal court in New York, former president Jimmy Carter, along with his publisher, Simon & Schuster, is being sued by five readers.

Pat Buchanan | February 04, 2011

Egypt's presdient not going to play the role assigned him in the White House script that has him resigning and fleeing Egypt in the face of mass demonstrations in Tahrir Square.

Suzanne Fields | February 04, 2011

We're moving swiftly into post-literate America, and more's the pity. Many of us can't write a coherent, straightforward, easy-to-read sentence.

Michael Gerson | February 04, 2011

Digging in the garden of a health official in Mali, investigators discover more than 30 counterfeit "stamps" used to validate fraudulent invoices to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

Linda Chavez | February 04, 2011

Feb. 6 marks the centennial of Ronald Reagan's birth, but the day had meaning for me even before I went to work for President Reagan in 1983.

Donald Lambro | February 04, 2011

Uncontrolled government spending is far worse than previously projected just a few months ago, driving the federal budget much more deeply into debt, which threatens our economy and our future standard of living.

Kyle Olson | February 04, 2011

It looks like the leaders of the Tennessee Education Association are in for some sleepless nights.

Joel Mowbray | February 04, 2011

Usually when chaos erupts in the Middle East, attention turns immediately to Israel and the Palestinians. Not so this time.

Alex Cortes | February 04, 2011

The predominant purpose of ObamaCare was to achieve liberals’ long-sought goal of universal health care coverage in America.

Carl Horowitz | February 04, 2011

If ever a federal agency were a candidate for termination, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) would make for a good choice. The BIA combines patronage and ethnic separatism into a single package, wasting sizable tax dollars in the process.

Thu, Feb 03, 2011

Janice Shaw Crouse | February 03, 2011

Former President Ronald Reagan’s centennial is just around the corner — February 6, the date of this year’s Super Bowl Sunday. It is appropriate to review some of the reasons for his greatness.

Paul Greenberg | February 03, 2011

Something new is being heard along the Nile: the sound of freedom.

Diana West | February 03, 2011

Americans must learn two concepts to better understand the political earthquake the United States is now pushing as President Obama gives his nod to "the Arab street," predominantly organized, it seems, by the Muslim Brotherhood, to force out an ally, Hosni Mubarak.

Cliff May | February 03, 2011

The upheaval in Egypt would be a dilemma for any American administration. But the policies President Obama has followed over the past two years have made his task more challenging in three ways.

Hugh Hewitt | February 03, 2011

Many readers don’t want to hear another horror story about doing business in California.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | February 03, 2011

This Sunday will mark the 100th birthday of Ronald Reagan.

Michael Barone | February 03, 2011

Barack Obama, like all American politicians, likes to portray himself as future-oriented and open to technological progress. Yet the vision he set out in his State of the Union address is oddly antique and disturbingly static.

Larry Elder | February 03, 2011

Will Egypt prove Bush and the neocons right -- that political freedom and peace are not incompatible in an Arab country in this tough neighborhood?

Jonah Goldberg | February 03, 2011

It's a sign of how tinny and uninspiring President Obama's State of the Union address was that a week later it all seems so forgettable.

Cal Thomas | February 03, 2011

On the centenary of Ronald Reagan's birth, I pause for another historic event: agreement with President Obama.

Debra J. Saunders | February 03, 2011

Forget all that talk about bipartisan civility.

Emmett Tyrrell | February 03, 2011

Conservatives and liberals are so different as to be drawn from distinct species of political animals.

Kyle Olson | February 03, 2011

One of the most disturbing results of an adult-focused public education system is the constant focus on money. There is an insatiable thirst on the part of Big Labor to constantly increase spending on public education, because the teachers’ unions are mostly concerned with their pensions, paychecks and the union coffers.

Steve Chapman | February 03, 2011

The individual mandate in President Barack Obama's health care reform was a lightning rod for criticism long before it became law.

Wendell Cox | February 03, 2011

Much has been said and written lately about “for-profit higher education” – in large part because the U.S. Department of Education is expected to soon publish so-called “Gainful Employment” rules that would place de facto mandates on who these schools can teach and what they can be taught.

Howard Rich | February 03, 2011

In his State of the Union address last week, U.S. President Barack Obama acknowledged that America’s “free enterprise system is what drives innovation.” He also said that if America is to “win the future,” then it must first “win the race to educate our kids.”

Ross Mackenzie | February 03, 2011

The week has brought two potentially future-altering stories -- one out of Florida, the other out of the Middle East.

Lee Habeeb | February 03, 2011

For anyone who doesn’t think that judges don’t matter, I beg you to read Judge Roger Vinson’s remarkable opinion in Florida v. Health and Human Services.

Wed, Feb 02, 2011

Ann Coulter | February 02, 2011

Fresh off of blaming Jared Loughner's killing spree in the Tucson mall on Sarah Palin, liberals are now blaming it on high-capacity magazines. They might as well imprison everyone named "Jared" to prevent a crime like this from ever happening again.

Michael Reagan | February 02, 2011

There has been a lot of media buzz about the thousands of prostitutes, strippers and pole dancers streaming into the Dallas area for the Super Bowl weekend. But what rarely gets reported is the alarming fact that hiding behind the push-up bras, false eyelashes and stilettos are children, some as young as 12 years of age, who are victims of human sex trafficking.

Jeff Jacoby | February 02, 2011

George W. Bush launched his second term as president with an inaugural address that put the spread of democratic freedoms at the heart of his international agenda.

Kyle Olson | February 02, 2011

The next time you hear of a school district that cannot afford new textbooks for its students, or is forced to lay off teachers due to budget constraints, remember the following story.

Michelle Malkin | February 02, 2011

Here's a modest proposal for liberals who say they support job creation: Stop smearing successful, law-abiding private companies whose values don't comport with yours.

John Stossel | February 02, 2011

The Congressional Budget Office says the current year's budget deficit will be a record $1.5 trillion. I'm now going to balance the budget, with the help of some experts.

Walter E. Williams | February 02, 2011

The sorry and tragic state of black education is not going to be turned around until there's a change in what's acceptable and unacceptable behavior by young people.

Brent Bozell | February 02, 2011

Is it not amazing that it's taken the news media exactly 100 years to discover that Ronald Reagan was a role model? While he lived and even after he died, they shot every arrow and dropped every bomb they could on this man and his reputation.

Ken Blackwell | February 02, 2011

Things would be a lot more civil if Congressman Moran didn’t accuse Republicans and conservatives of trying to re-fight the Civil War!

Tony Blankley | February 02, 2011

Whatever may happen in the hours after I write this column, two things are certain: The next chapter in the magnificent and ancient civilization of the Nile will be yet to be known.

Michael Medved | February 02, 2011

The ongoing turbulence in Egypt transmits two profound and disturbing lessons to American policy makers and all those who care about international affairs.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | February 02, 2011

Losing Egypt to the grip of Islamic fundamentalism would be a huge blow to the United States, to Israel and to the entire Western world.

Ben Shapiro | February 02, 2011

Revolution is the word of the day in the Middle East. The reaction in the American media and government is pure puzzlement. Who is revolting? Why? Should we support them or oppose them?

Terry Jeffrey | February 02, 2011

An American in Cairo in the mid-1980s could not have failed to notice the ubiquitous young men in black uniforms, holding rifles and standing as generally inattentive and slump-shouldered sentries in front of major embassies and public buildings.

David Harsanyi | February 02, 2011

For discussion's sake, let's just concede that every four years or so the American public is fooled into voting for a demagogue who's mastered a pleasant-sounding, market-tested populism.

Humberto Fontova | February 02, 2011

On December 3rd 2009, Alan Gross, a U.S. citizen distributing cell phones and computer equipment to Cuba’s Jewish community on contract for the U.S. Agency for International Development, prepared to board a plane homeward at Havana’s International Airport.

Austin Bay | February 02, 2011

Egypt's complex rebellion is rushing toward revolution. For the near-term, how the Egyptian military promotes, thwarts, and/or negotiates the inevitable redistribution of power among individuals and factions within the country is the most critical issue.

Rich Galen | February 02, 2011

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has attempted to quell the unease in his country by announcing he will not run for a 217th term as President later this year.

Donald Lambro | February 02, 2011

Centennial events here and around the world officially begin this week to commemorate Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday that will mark the 40th president's historic legacy.

Ed Feulner | February 02, 2011

It’s been more than six years since our nation bid farewell to Ronald Reagan, yet it seems at times as though he never left.

Jacob Sullum | February 02, 2011

Vicky Hartzler, a freshman representative from Missouri, says one of her top priorities is "reining in runaway spending." Yet she exempts one-fifth of the federal budget and more than half of discretionary spending from scrutiny.

Marybeth Hicks | February 02, 2011

Admittedly, the Egyptian uprising, the nullification of Obamacare and the ongoing ramifications of "Snowpocolypse 2011" could render the controversy about an MTV original program insignificant by comparison. After all, MTV is only out to destroy an entire generation. No big deal.

Jonah Goldberg | February 01, 2011

History is lurching in the Middle East, perhaps forward, possibly backward.

Robert Knight | February 01, 2011

Socialism – the abolishment of private property – sometimes advances at the point of a gun. At other times, it advances by co-opting the language of freedom.

Rebecca Hagelin | February 01, 2011

Danny Flaherty, a 17-year-old actor in the new MTV series, Skins, is described by his TV Director as “sweet, shy…ready.” Ready for what?

Armstrong Williams | February 01, 2011

While Congress prepares its budget for this year, threatening deep cuts to a $14 trillion debt, the first real test of the GOP's fiscal constitution is shaping up to come in the form of whether to raise the debt ceiling.

Thomas Sowell | February 01, 2011

Despite the old saying, "Don't cry over spilled milk," the Environmental Protection Agency is doing just that.

Byron York | February 01, 2011

On May 2, Republicans will gather at the Reagan Library in Santa Barbara, Calif., for the first GOP presidential debate of the 2012 campaign. It's not clear which candidates will be there, but here's a safe bet: Each will declare himself, or herself, a Reagan Republican.

Chuck Norris | February 01, 2011

Last week, in his State of the Union address, Obama was adamant about freezing U.S. government domestic spending over the next five years. But why not do the same for U.S. spending abroad?

John Hawkins | February 01, 2011

Did you know liberals aren't as happy as conservatives? Of course, you did. How could you not know it after listening to them incessantly wail, gripe, whine, and complain about everything?

David Limbaugh | February 01, 2011

Though tolerance is not the highest virtue and hypocrisy is not the lowest sin, liberals have a dearth of the former while demanding it and an abundance of the latter while forbidding it.

Mona Charen | February 01, 2011

Do we sympathize with the tens of thousands of Egyptians marching to topple the regime of Hosni Mubarak? It would be churlish not to.

Cal Thomas | February 01, 2011

The turmoil in Egypt must not be seen in isolation from other events in the world. Neither is it an aberration. It is the next scene in a long-running play whose final act is the domination of the world by radical Islamists.

Cal Thomas | February 01, 2011

The turmoil in Egypt must not be seen in isolation from other events in the world. Neither is it an aberration. It is the next scene in a long-running play whose final act is the domination of the world by radical Islamists.

Dennis Prager | February 01, 2011

The most common left-wing objection to the right is that it wants to control others' lives. But, both in America and elsewhere, the threat to personal liberty has emanated far more from the left.

Caroline Glick | February 01, 2011

Does the US fail to understand what will happen to its strategic interests in the region if the Muslim Brotherhood is the power behind the throne of the next regime?

Pat Buchanan | February 01, 2011

Among the biggest losers of the Egyptian uprising are, first, the Mubaraks, who are finished, and, next, the United States and Israel.

Debra J. Saunders | February 01, 2011

"We don't have a revenue problem. We have a spending problem." That's a Republican mantra often used to explain why the answer to Washington's deficit spending is not a tax increase, but more spending cuts.

Phyllis Schlafly | February 01, 2011

While the U.S. House is trying to figure out how to cut wasteful and/or extravagant federal spending, members should be mindful of Reagan's advice to begin by cutting programs that are harmful.

Bill Murchison | February 01, 2011

In news stories about Obamacare, the usual journalistic formulation is, "This will be," "That will be," "Citizens will," "Companies will," etc.

Kyle Olson | February 01, 2011

The high school graduate who cannot read his diploma is a favorite cliché among education reformers. But like all clichés, it holds a lot of truth.

Carrie Lukas | February 01, 2011

Back in the days before the State of the Union was used to showcase Congress's bipartisan spirit and parties still sat on opposite sides of the aisle, the American people could get a good read on a party's position on an issue from their reaction to lines in the speech.

Michael Gerson | January 31, 2011

In June 2005, along with then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, I met nine Egyptian opposition figures, including presidential candidate Ayman Nour, in a shabby Cairo conference room.

Rich Galen | January 31, 2011

The troubles in Egypt are serious troubles for everyone.

Rachel Alexander | January 31, 2011

The Obama administration’s reaction to the massive demonstrations and government crackdown in Egypt has been inconsistent, awkwardly changing from day to day.

Guy Benson | January 31, 2011

Hundreds of Chicagoland residents flocked to a townhall meeting on education reform last week, as school choice advocates continued a nationwide push to highlight the issue during National School Choice Week.

Michael Barone | January 31, 2011

Numbers can tell a story. Looking back on Barack Obama's second State of the Union message, and looking forward to the congressional session and the 2012 elections, they tell a story that should leave Democrats uneasy.

Mike Adams | January 31, 2011

William Irvine is a professor of philosophy at Wright State University. He is one of the most courageous and honest professors in the country. Recently, he wrote a column concerning Wright State’s decision to invite the Reverend Jeremiah Wright to speak on his campus.

Jeff Jacoby | January 31, 2011

The government of Somalia is being urged to hire Saracen International, "a controversial South African mercenary firm," to protect Somali officials and help fight pirates and Islamic militants.

Terry Paulson | January 31, 2011

Once again, political pundits are saying that the California Republican Party is dead and never to rise again unless it begins to embrace more moderate candidates.

Lurita Doan | January 31, 2011

Obama in his recent State of the Union address, showed nothing but gloss.

Bruce Bialosky | January 31, 2011

Jerry Brown pitched Californians on the concept that he was the right person to heal California’s woes because of his experience. He admitted that at 72 years of age, this was the last stop of his political career and so he could fearlessly confront the state’s daunting challenges.

Mike Needham | January 31, 2011

Give President Obama credit for saying the right thing when he praised America's spirit of entrepreneurship in his State of the Union address. It's a shame his policies contradict his rhetoric.

Frank Gaffney | January 31, 2011

As Egypt lurches toward the end of President Hosni Mubarak’s regime, one way or another - by “an orderly transition to democratic rule” (as Hillary Rodham Clinton delicately puts it), through violent overthrow or simply through the demise of the ailing 82-year-old president - much is unclear.

Robert Morrison | January 31, 2011

Khrushchev had his Sputnik Moment. The Soviets had their Sputnik Moment. Communist sympathizers throughout the world had their Sputnik Moment.

Star Parker | January 31, 2011

The Republican take away from President Obama’s State of the Union address should be unwavering opposition to an unconditional increase in the U.S. debt limit.

As the old adage goes: 'With guns, we are citizens. Without them, we are subjects.'

Paul Jacob | January 30, 2011

America's foreign policy - progressive in origins, imperialist in nature - now finds another just cause it can't quite support.

Salena Zito | January 30, 2011

MILFORD, Pa. – Less than a quarter-mile from the Columns, the stunning home of the Pike County Historical Society’s museum in the Delaware River Highlands, lies the grave of Charles Van Wyck, a former Republican New York congressman, U.S. senator from Nebraska, and Civil War hero.

Austin Hill | January 30, 2011

It seems like a strange time to “move to the left.” But it seems to be happening nonetheless.

Debra J. Saunders | January 30, 2011

Four times this month, the U.S. Supreme Court has slapped down the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Steve Chapman | January 30, 2011

You've had the experience of walking along and negotiating around someone who is walking slowly, weaving or bumping into other pedestrians for an obvious reason: He or she is talking on a cell phone, listening to an iPod or texting on a Blackberry.

Ken Connor | January 30, 2011

For many years now, America's civil justice system has been on the losing side of the public relations battle.
