William Kristol is founder and editor of The Weekly Standard, a journal of politics and ideas located in Washington, D.C. He is also a regular panelist on Fox News Sunday, a contributor for the Fox News Channel and a monthly columnist for the Washington Post. Before starting the Weekly Standard in 1995, Mr. Kristol led the Project for the Republican Future, where he helped shape the strategy that produced the 1994 Republican congressional victory. Prior to that, Mr. Kristol served as chief of staff to Vice President Dan Quayle during the first Bush Administration, and to Education Secretary William Bennett under President Reagan. Before coming to Washington in 1985, Mr. Kristol was on the faculty of Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government (1983-1985) and the Department of Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania (1979-1983).

Mr. Kristol has published widely in areas ranging from foreign policy to constitutional law to political philosophy. He has co-edited several books, including The Neoconservative Imagination (with Christopher DeMuth, 1995), Educating the Prince: Essays in Honor of Harvey Mansfield (with Mark Blitz, 2000), Present Dangers (with Robert Kagan, 2000), Bush v. Gore: The Court Cases and the Commentary (with E. J. Dionne, Jr., 2001), and The Future is Now: America Confronts the New Genetics (with Eric Cohen, 2002). He is the co-author, with Lawrence Kaplan, of the best-selling 2003 book, The War Over Iraq.

Mr. Kristol received both his A.B. (1973) and Ph.D. (1979) from Harvard University.

Gary Bauer served in President Ronald Reagan’s administration for eight years as Under Secretary of Education and as President Reagan’s Chief Domestic Policy Advisor. While serving at the Education Department, Bauer was named Chairman of President Reagan’s Special Working Group on the Family. His report, “The Family: Preserving America’s Future,” was presented to the President in December 1986.

A staunch supporter of President Bush’s war on terrorism, Bauer is also a leading Christian advocate for a strong and secure Israel. Since the atrocities of September 11th, Bauer has devoted considerable time and energy to strengthening the shared values of the Israeli/American alliance.

In 1996, Bauer launched the Campaign for Working Families, a political action committee dedicated to electing pro-family, pro-life conservatives to public office. In its first two years of operation, Campaign for Working Families raised $7 million with 90,000 individual contributors and today remains one of America’s largest conservative political action committees.

Bauer took his unapologetically pro-family, pro-life message across the country in 1999 and 2000 into the Republican presidential debates and primaries. Stressing the sanctity of life and traditional marriage, Bauer made family-friendly policies and combating judicial activism key platforms of his campaign.

He has continued to champion these and other causes at American Values, a non-profit educational organization Bauer founded after the 2000 presidential campaign. From American Values, Bauer has authored numerous op-ed pieces making the case for a federal marriage protection amendment and stressing the urgent need to rein in rogue judges. A vocal opponent of the “stealth strategy” for Supreme Court nominations, Bauer was an early critic of the nomination of Harriet Miers and enthusiastically backed Samuel Alito. During the Roberts and Alito Supreme Court confirmation hearings, Bauer was quoted more than one thousand times in newspapers across the country making the case for a conservative Supreme Court nominee.

Is Israel going to allow inspection of its nuclear program? Join the Convention on CW? Israel is an exception — the most dismal outlier among nations.

William Kristol is a traitor. There will be tribunals and he will be indicted.

Israel has the nuclear bomb. They have the bulldozers, the American planes, the American guns, access to American intelligence services. Do you really think this web page is anything more than the most crass form of Biblical pandering?

This is a group of Christians and jews who believe that it is best to have a strong israel so the “end of days” can begin. Religion is insanity anymore.

combine William Kristol and Gary Bauer – what do you get – intolerance supporting an agenda of sending other folks’ kids to fight wars

Would not support your “group” in a million years. Isreal is like the little kid who starts a fight then goes to get big brother (USofA) to protect him. I support Pres. Obama and whomever he chooses to pick for SecofDefense. The “people” on you board tried to defeat the president now wants to have influence on cabinet nominations – I don’t think so. Hagel went into war as an enlisted man and won two purple hearts. He has my respect and admiration, Neocons do not.
