FEATURED ARTICLES
ORIENT: Tucson reveals poisonous media milieu
By Dr. Jane M. Orient - The Washington Times
Tucsonans are grieved by the loss of family, friends and neighbors and are shaken by the reminder of mortality. Standing in line to greet their congresswoman, or just going to the grocery store, they could be killed by a malcontent. They are not immune from the violence that is rampant in the world, bringing sudden death from bombs, incendiary devices, missiles, gunfire or other means.

CAMPBELL: The liberal tax
By Rep. John Campbell - The Washington Times
During the protracted debate over the extension of the "Bush tax cuts," much of the angst of President Obama and his fellow Democrats has been centered around increasing taxes on "the rich." "Rich," for purposes of this debate, has been defined by the president as individuals making more than $200,000 per year and families earning more than $250,000.

TYRRELL: Liberalism's death knell keeps tolling
By R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. - The Washington Times
The evidence mounts that liberalism is dead. The liberal wizards, working their wonders at the New York Times and its clearinghouses in the major networks, cannot even dupe the American people with an absurd conspiracy theory anymore. In Dallas back in 1963, Lee Harvey Oswald, a pious communist awash in the Marxist-Leninist bilge, shot President John F. Kennedy. In no time, the liberals had the nation focused on the "dangerous right-wing atmosphere" supposedly pervading Dallas. Published 6:18 p.m. January 12, 2011 - Comments
EDITORIAL: Blood libel against Palin, Limbaugh
By The Washington Times
Sarah Palin issued a statement yesterday condemning the "reprehensible" response to Saturday's shooting in Tucson by some members of the media. "Within hours of a tragedy unfolding," she wrote, "journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn."

EDITORIAL: Chicken Little eats crow
By THE WASHINGTON TIMES - The Washington Times
Doomsayers who make a living warning that the sky is falling victim to human-induced pollution need to take a deep breath. It turns out Mother Nature has her own resources for cleaning up the air. Published 6:59 p.m. January 12, 2011 - Comments
EDITORIAL: Avoiding the next Tucson
By THE WASHINGTON TIMES - The Washington Times
Last weekend's tragedy in Tucson is helping focus needed attention on the intersec-tion between serious mental illness and crime. Modern society prides itself on being open-minded, but there's still much room for progress in how we look at the mentally ill. Published 6:59 p.m. January 12, 2011 - Comments
MINTON: The online poker players next door
By Michelle Minton - The Washington Times
Ask any professional poker player after a losing night what happened, and very rarely will he attribute the outcome to bad luck. There is an element of chance involved - for example, in the cards one is dealt - but long-term success lies, literally, in each player's hands. Published 7:12 p.m. January 12, 2011 - Comments
FIELDS: Changing how we think
By Suzanne Fields - The Washington Times
We mourn, we weep, we wonder why. How could such things happen? Smart phones and online libraries constantly feed us information, but we don't get any wiser. We blame others for what goes wrong and for what we don't fully understand. Pundits argue and provoke, pretending to seek wisdom from the dialectic, but they're merely in love with the sound of their own voices. Jeremiahs predict the worst, Pollyannas foresee a rosy future and the ostrich buries his head in the sand (where insights as wise as any other may lurk).

BERG: Who should lead the GOP?
By Dave Berg - The Washington Times
The 168 members of the Republican National Committee (RNC) will be voting tomorrow to elect a new chairman. Most Republicans don't even know about this election, but its importance cannot be overstated. The outcome will have much to do with whether a Republican president is elected in 2012. Published 6:18 p.m. January 12, 2011 - Comments
MELADY: Michael S. Steele for RNC chairman
By Thomas P. Melady - The Washington Times
Tomorrow, Republicans through their state chairmen and committeemen will elect the chairman of the Republican National Committee. There is special importance to the election as this chairman will lead the party in the national presidential elections of November 2012. Published 6:18 p.m. January 12, 2011 - Comments
GAFFNEY: The provocative danger of weakness
By Frank J. Gaffney Jr. - The Washington Times
Two recent episodes offer an insight into a world in which the United States deliberately adopts a policy of pursuing international peace despite weakness, rather than practice what Ronald Reagan called "peace through strength." Published 6:18 p.m. January 12, 2011 - Comments
LEHMANN & APPLETON: Tension grows with China
By Jean-Pierre Lehmann and Arthur Appleton - The Washington Times
When President Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao meet in Washington on Jan. 19, they should recognize that generally when a new big power rises, war ensues. Published 6:07 p.m. January 11, 2011 - Comments
BOOK REVIEW: Sister who embraced Stalinism
By Martin Rubin - The Washington Times
In the many volumes of what might be termed Mitfordology - studies of that endlessly fascinating and appalling clan - next-to-last daughter Jessica often appears as a salutary counterpoint to her Nazi and fascist siblings. But in the account of her life in this adulatory biography, what is most striking is not what sets her apart from all those other Mitfords, but rather her horrible similarity to them. Published 6:18 p.m. January 12, 2011 - Comments
Emphasize academic content, not process
By The Washington Times
I agree that too much time and effort have been spent on the skills required for teaching and not enough on the mastery of the subject by the teacher ("America woefully out-scienced," Web, Dec. 29). Published 6:59 p.m. January 12, 2011 - Comments
Resurrect our nation's founding values
By The Washington Times
Our country is hemorrhaging from reckless spending, leaving the people in debt with the interest payments alone while the presses are busy printing more currency. Will the recently elected Republican House of Representatives follow our words or fall into the same old routine as its forerunners by neglecting those it represents to follow its own agenda? To those newly elected congressmen, listen to your hearts. We must restore honor and truth in this country before the candle of liberty is snuffed out. Published 6:59 p.m. January 12, 2011 - Comments
