Last Friday, polling showed Trump is deceptively stronger, and Democrats weaker, than currently perceived. Beneath the surface, Trump is ahead of his 2016 finish with key groups, and ahead of where Obama was in 2011. A year and a half…

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…

Liberals love victims… except those of establishment media bias. The American public astutely recognizes the bias, even as the establishment media adamantly refuses to acknowledge it. This ironic role reversal — from publicizer to perpetuator — reveals the true goal…
