Drudge tries to spook Trump voters again

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 8/31/2019 10:33:23 AM

Another Friday and another hamfisted attempt by the Drudge Report to undermine support for President Donald John Trump. A week ago, Matt Drudge was sure that the trade war with Red China was going to do The Donald in because the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down. A week before that Drudge had us in a recession not caused by Red China. Drudge has linked and bannered stories about wars with Iran, North Korea and Syria, which never materialized. I get that he has to link breaking news, but his continual selection of anti-Trump tripe trotted out by the Fourth Estate borders on desperation, and it diminishes and discredits Drudge


I found Lucianne at Drudge nearly two decades ago. Never go there now.

Same here. Drudge and Lucianne have been a daily part of my life for over 20 years. Now Drudge has gone to the dark side, with added sensationlist junk as filler, and Lucianne is cluttered with popups the drive me CRAZY. Oy.

Rarely, as in almost never, do I visit the Drudgereport any longer. His over the top, crazy sensational news links began to tire on me about 5, 7 years ago. Now he's gotten worse, worse than even when Obola was in office. Something happened to Drudge (is he ill - perhaps he should be "red flagged"?) Anyway I don't go to Drudge so the silly nonsense he likes to keep posting is meaningless.

I used to start ever day at Drudge. I occasionally go for a convenient like to something like the hurricane computer models predicting the track. Otherwise, I am done with Drudge. Drudge's anti-Trump and pro-leftist turn is disheartening.

Number six is on target..but Drudge is much worse than the tabloids. The guy is dangerous. A lot of conservatives follow him and he ain't one of them. He's a sick joke. He's a lowlife.

Like several others, I used to get most information of interest first with Drudge, then Lucianne, and a few others if there was time, but little left of interest after Lucianne. Now Drudge isn’t even amusing, much less informative. What will we do if Lucianne ever quits?

Drudge Report is possibly the worst news site on the internet. Not only is the content trashy and irrelevant but the site itself continually refreshes itself causing readers to lose their place and thus quickly lose interest. Drudge's middle-of-the-road approach is a pathetic attempt to please everyone and therefore no one. It was removed from my favorites list months ago.

The Drudge Report was the very first thing I turned to when I turned my computer on, and this for many many years. Of late I barely look at it.......when I do I check to see if ole Matt is covering any of the really disturbing (Comey etc.) issues of the day, and find he has largely missed them. And I don't miss HIM largely either.

I have never thought of Mat Drudge as being a hard-core conservative. He was happy to take down Slick Willie Clinton with the "blue dress". But if he could have found pictures of President Bush and VP Cheney in bed having an orgy with a bunch of midget clowns, he would have posted it. He is primarily in it for Mat Drudge, it's that simple. Sadly, when he clearly joined the "Never Trumpsters" a few years ago, he lost me. Too much bias!!!

I haven't gone to Drudge in years. Whatfinger is better for conservatives. If I want to see what the left thinks I can find plenty of their BS all over the internet. I don't think that Matt has 'gone left' as much as his page clicks are falling. He has ramped up the scare stories and titillating items in an effort to get more hits. He's looking more like those English broadsheets every day. Next he will be linking to nudie sites.

Yeah, Drudge has really gone to the dark side. He went full-bore on Buttigieg and that put him prominently in the never-Trump rut. Kind of odd, given that the liberals intend to shut him down. Maybe he is looking for a buyout.

As I've said before, Drudge is gay. He's made his FU money and is returning to the lefty fold which has always been his ideological home. He would have been just another news aggregator had it not been for the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and even then it was in an indirect fashion. Drudge revealed that Michael "Spikey" Issikoff had spiked the Lewinsky story (hence the nickname) to cover for Clinton, and therefore Drudge took the particulars public. The rest is history. So, the earlier poster is right. I didn't matter what the politics of the perpetrators were, it was just Drudge looking for something - anything - to hang his Fedora on.

The decision by Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic House leadership to depart from Washington without resolving whether the Senate trial of the president will even happen is a blunder of potentially serious proportions. It totally undermines everything the Democrats have done narratively for the past several months,(Snip). Instead, impeachment now looks more like an example of that ancient term: a partisan traveshamockery. Pelosi’s supporters who are hard core Democratic donors and partisans may like this move, since it denies the president the surety of what is almost assuredly going to be a bipartisan vote to acquit him on both charges in the Senate.

Dan Bongino is very well versed in the details of Spygate; so it’s especially interesting when a person who knows the details interviews former House Intelligence Chairman, and current ranking member, Devin Nunes. Keyword to focus attention; something CTH has drawn attention toward; is when Nunes says: “conspiracy” and “conspiring” in relation to conduct being illegal. Another interesting reference is when Devin Nunes outlines FBI supervisory special agent #1, or SSA1 is “deep throat”. We know from research SSA1 is Joseph Pientka.

One, they ran the nation’s key intelligence and investigatory agencies under former President Barack Obama. They were deeply involved in the “Russian collusion” hoax. And they participated in the surveillance of the Trump campaign and transition. Comey and McCabe both signed applications for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court warrants requesting surveillance on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

David Ignatius must be kidding: Who might deliver us from this national train wreck? Who could restore a sense of balance to the Senate trial so that, whatever its outcome, it doesn’t feed Trump’s false narrative of victimization and populist rage? There’s one obvious answer: Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and custodian of what remains of his party’s moral and political balance. Counting on Mitt Romney for political courage and moral leadership is always a bad bet. Romney has a very safe seat in Utah, so in theory he could afford to take risks, but taking political risks is exactly what Romney never does.

By signing the $738 billion Defense Spending Bill, on Friday, President Donald Trump has raised the legal age for smoking to 21 nationwide — news that went largely unnoticed. The new rules include cigarettes and e-cigarettes. The smoking age hike had bipartisan support in the Senate, and was co-authored by Democrats Brian Schatz and Dick Durbin, and Republicans Mitt Romney and Todd Young, CNN reported. Now that Trump’s signature is on the bill, the Food and Drug Administration has 180 days to update its regulations — and the new age requirement will go into effect 90 days later, ABC News reported.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision not to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate for trial on the pretext that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell won’t conduct the trial in a manner approved by House Democrats introduces a novel and dangerous dynamic to the impeachment of President Trump—namely, a constitutional crisis, not between the legislative and executive branches, but between the House and the Senate. Under the Constitution, the House has the sole power of impeachment and the Senate has the sole power of conducting a trial.

The House of Representatives impeached President Bill Clinton on Dec. 19, 1998. It was a Saturday. The votes, in which two articles of impeachment passed, were held around midday. By 3 p.m., the House had passed a resolution naming its impeachment managers, and those managers had physically delivered the articles to the Senate for trial. Impeachment was on. The House, controlled by a Republican majority, was serious about its ultimately failed effort to remove Clinton from office. Contrast that to today. On Wednesday, Dec. 18, at around 8 p.m., the Democratic-controlled House passed two articles of impeachment against President Trump.
