America’s conservatives should be those least amazed by our left’s calls for wealth confiscation. The only surprise here is the flaunting. After all, wealth confiscation is what the left everywhere has always done. Once in power, it is the only…

The Mueller report gave Democrats their worst possible outcome at the worst possible time. Trump’s effective exoneration dashed Democrats’ two-year expectation that their animosity against this president would be publicly justified. Stoking their frustrations now only reinforces their rush into…

Generally seen as underwater, below the surface things are very different for Trump. President Trump elicits strong reactions from two-thirds of America’s electorate. Yet among the one-third in neither camp, the president is quietly doing quite well. Rasmussen’s 4/16 daily…
