Conservative Dan Bongino launches
alternative to the Drudge Report

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 12/5/2019 10:32:11 AM

Fox News contributor and podcaster Dan Bongino launched a news aggregation website on Wednesday designed to rival the Drudge Report. The Bongino Report comes as some Trump supporters have grown increasingly agitated with the direction of the Drudge Report, which has taken a noticeable turn against President Trump in recent months after being staunchly in the former real estate mogul's corner leading up to and after the 2016 presidential election. (Snip)He previously revealed on social media that the new media platform will feature "exclusively conservative and libertarian content." In promoting his new platform, Bongino accused Drudge of abandoning the conservative movement and added that he "never will."

Apples and oranges. Bongino's site is almost all political, whereas Drudge has a broader mix.

I too have deleted Drudge a few months back; tried the Liberty File for a few days but found it very annoying and full of splashy ads. Way to go Dan, we need you. You will be my first stop in the morning, along with Lucianne as I really can't stand watching Fox much these days except for Fox & Friends; Five and Hannity!!!

Dobbs show: Great guests and timely subjects. Problem is Dobbs. Bloviates, talks over his guests - while they wait - stumbles over his redundant words, and more. BUT, it's a Must See program even while you writhe with frustration at the host who goes on and on and on and nauseam.

Deleted Drudge months ago. Once upon a time he had a good idea and made money with it. Enjoy. For years I resented headlines about 4 headed cows, babies with 7 arms, etc... Unfortunately Drudge is not burdened with too much brains. He never 'grew', he is still stuck in the blue dress decade. #9. totally agree with you about Dobbs. If only he could shut his mouth and allow a word from his 'guests. Don't know why he has them on. Just call the show Dobbs the bloviator monolog. Because of his rambling I frequently just turn off.

What #9 said. Lou Dobbs has a timely program, full of good guests (instead of those obligatory Dem apparatchiks that Fox has to plug in to look fair and balanced). But Lou himself is a nightmare. He has canned remarks on his little teleprompter (somewhere off to one side - follow his eyes) and he MUST insert them, no matter what. Lately he has gotten stuck because he always included the Koch brothers along with his rote list of the opposing forces. One has died. Oh my. Anyway, he infuriates me. The interruptions to insert his own nothingburger ranting when a guest is someone we want to hear from. But we record and watch. And sometimes I turn him off.

PS. Lucianne is still the best aggregator around. Gave up Drudge years ago. Posted an article I found at Bongino, but the website is meh and too texty-looking. Headlines need larger type and something to set them apart for easier skimming. Many would not realize those headlines are links.

I've been a daily Drudge user since the early early days. We're talking pre-Lewinskly, when Google was still being run out of a garage. Today, I officially severed that relationship and replaced it with Between Lucianne, Conservative Treehouse, and now Bongino, I've got all the news aggregators I need. Who ever thought Drudge would sell-out and follow the Weekly Standard down the Never Trumper drain?

Thank you, #19. Hannity and Laura are just as bad, constant helping all their buds sell books, Sean’s constantly trying to remind views he had a dishwashing job, etc. Sean has been MEGA wealthy for decades - time to own it. RINOs don’t even go on Lou Dobbs because its the only FOX show where their cowardice is firmly addressed.

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. So it was corrupt FBI Agent Joseph Pientka who was the workhorse organizing the various schemes and day-to-day FBI manipulations. (Video)

Former FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper have lots of things in common. 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. A report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz criticized Comey and McCabe’s FBI for falsehoods and misrepresentations during its investigation of the Donald Trump campaign.

Flake, who represented Arizona in the U.S. Senate from 2013 until 2019, urged his former colleagues to undergo a “simple test,” which involves questioning how former President Barack Obama would have been treated under the same circumstances. “What if President Barack Obama had engaged in precisely the same behavior?” Flake asked rhetorically.

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.
