Liberals notice Drudge flipped

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 1/30/2020 2:10:43 PM

Matt Drudge turned his coat on Donald John Trump last year. Liberals have begun noticing. Guess what? They do not want him either. To be sure, conservatives have had it with him. On October 9, I wrote my most popular post of 2019, "Post Drudge conservative news." I said, "Matt Drudge's foray into respectability has made him an unreliable -- indeed, downright misleading -- source of news. But the good news is there are alternatives to the Alternative Left Reality the Drudge Report now calls home." Readers overwhelmingly agreed that Drudge sold out.

Drudge's Alexa report is not auspicious. Over 90 days is has dropped from #667 to #901 in global internet traffic. The trend is not good.

thelibertydaily.com seems to taken over from Drudge. Drudge sold out in a complicated deal that made him a pot of money. Good for him. But I won't go read his now-Google-owned website.

Drudge forgot that the marketplace made him and will now forget him. CNN seems to be his editorial pinnings now.

Matt sold out for simple silver - lots of it. I don't think he was ever in it for principles. 'What does it profit a man.....? The author is right - no one will ever value his opinion again.

You got it #4! Lucianne.com when I first wake up and before I go to bed, with a check of Bonginoreports, Conservativetreehouse and Legalinsurrection (for an attorney’s spin on current events.) Can’t read everything but I feel I have an idea of what’s going on. Will have to check out this Liberty Daily several of you have mentioned. Left Drudge last year and haven’t been back.

What's that you say? Dogie rampage? Dodge Raptor? No? Dredge? Can't say it rings a bell... Like Cardinal John Henry Newman found out after he converted from Anglican to Catholic, when you switch sides of a bitter rivalry, neither side will embrace you as one of theirs. The Left did their 'cancel' of Drudge over a decade ago, without any workable precedent for undoing a 'cancel'. And the Right seem to have have a stinging Drudge Grudge since his transformation.

Lucianne.com, protrumpnews.com, Bonginoreport.com for the rest of the story. I can get all the usual DNC, coup, neonazi neocommunist propaganda from the rest of the media, because it is saturated with it. Matt Drudge is an attention seeking weed in the wind. His rise to fame and fortune was simply because he dared to provide a list of a few alternatives to the usual fake news brainwashing. NO analysis, no insight, just links to a few alternative, and plenty of links to all the propaganda. Now he is downplaying or eliminating the few interesting alternatives to the usual slop. Who cares? There are brighter places to go as I mentioned and at Lucianne you see the usual lies from the MSM, BUT you get great insight, information and a chance to add to the discussion. It's like a trillion times more informative than all the old networks and the odd assortment of soros cable idiots.

Libertdaily looks a lot like Drudge used to, but the quality of the site is far less. Like another poster mentioned, it is loaded with fat jokes and stupid plays on peoples' names. (Yes, I do it sometimes too. But not like them). Its like it is edited by a junior high bully. Still, I read it and prefer it over the current Drudge. Bongino is far better and Lucianne is tops.

During his four decades as an accumulator of power in the nation’s capital, a holder of high offices in the State Department, and finally a stint as President Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton has been well known for his scrupulous attention to the hiring and firing of his staff. He always has demanded unwavering personal loyalty as well as fealty to his own—not his president’s—policy agenda. He has performed the most rigorous vetting on all who have been selected to serve on his various staffs, both the small number of political appointees a political appointee such as himself is allowed to have as well as the more numerous personnel selected

We can see the basic outline of how a fraudulent impeachment scheme was constructed through an alliance of operatives in the National Security Council (NSC) and staff in the House committees. Our nation is currently dealing with the consequences. However, if we go back to Nancy Pelosi’s December 2018 rule changes, there is clear forethought. It now looks like the Lawfare network constructed the ‘whistle-blower’ complaint (Snip)and handed it to allied CIA operative Eric Ciaramella to file as a formal IC complaint. This process is almost identical to the Fusion-GPS/Lawfare network handing the Steele Dossier to the FBI to use as the evidence for the 2016/2017 Russia conspiracy.

A year after Ukraine official and alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella left President Trump’s White House, a picture of him shaking Barack Obama’s hand was published on a close friend's wedding website. The Oval Office photograph, obtained by the Washington Examiner, is circulating among Trump allies who consider it evidence that the alleged whistleblower is biased against Trump and had partisan motivations when he filed an Aug. 12 complaint that sparked impeachment proceedings.(Snip) From 2015, Ciaramella was the NSC's Ukraine director, the post currently occupied by Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who has testified against Trump and with whom Ciaramella still has professional dealings. The Washington Post has suggested that Vindman spoke

Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski came out Friday against calling witnesses in President Trump’s impeachment trial, all but assuring the Senate will move to wrap up proceedings with a likely acquittal in a matter of days, if not hours. “Given the partisan nature of this impeachment from the very beginning and throughout, I have come to the conclusion that there will be no fair trial in the Senate. I don’t believe the continuation of this process will change anything. It is sad for me to admit that, as an institution, the Congress has failed,” said Murkowski, R-Alaska, a key moderate senator who has been closely watched on the witness question.

In a January 5, 1999 private memorandum to his fellow Democrat senators at the time, Biden wrote that the Senate should dismiss the articles of impeachment against Clinton without holding what he called a “‘full blown’ trial.” “The Senate need not hold a ‘full blown’ trial” with witnesses and testimony, then-Sen. Biden wrote. “[T]he Senate may dismiss articles of impeachment without holding a full trial or taking any evidence.”

Two Republicans joined 47 Democrats to vote in favor of calling for the additional evidence. The motion fell short by two votes, ending the case House Impeachment managers have been presenting for the past two weeks. The Senate now moves into the final phase of the trial, which could last a few days longer to allow senators to deliberate and give speeches before holding final votes.
