  • Matt Drudge: Media propping up ‘old and sick’ Hillary

    The Hill ^ | October 06, 2015 | Elliot Smilowitz
    Media kingpin Matt Drudge on Tuesday railed against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s health and her politics, saying he was worried the nation would end up “with Hillary’s brain in the Oval Office in a jar.” “She’s old and she’s sick,” the Drudge Report founder said in an interview with Alex Jones. Drudge slammed the media for propping up Clinton’s candidacy. “She’s not a contender. They’re making her a contender with these propped up Saturday Night Live things. It’s like a head on a stick,” he said, chiding NBC for “giving her endless hours of airtime.” Note: Complete 45 minute...

    In his book Abuse of Language, Abuse of Power, the German Catholic philosopher Josef Pieper wrote the following: “That the existential realm of man could be taken over by pseudorealities whose fictitious nature threatens to become indiscernible is truly a depressing thought. And yet, the Platonic nightmare, I hold, possesses an alarming contemporary relevance. For the general public is being reduced to a state where people are not only unable to find out about the truth but also become unable even to search for the truth because they are satisfied with deception and trickery that have determined their convictions, satisfied...

    Steven Rattner, a fundraiser for Democrat Hillary Clinton and someone who was fined by the SEC, has a column criticizing Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina in The New York Times titled "Carly Fiorina Really Was That Bad." ... "Not mentioned by the Times is the fact Rattner was once President Obama‘s 'Car Czar' back during the Cash-for-Clunkers days. He’s also a major fundraiser for (drumroll…) Hillary Clinton."

    The New York Times is declaring that disgraced private equity mogul Steven Rattner has gotten his reputation back in the Manhattan lunch circles that matter. This was probably only a matter of time given that it was the Times itself that played a leading role in his rehabilitation. It’s Andrew Ross Sorkin, naturally, who pronounces the cleansing complete, even wondering aloud if Rattner could be a Treasury secretary someday.

[Imagine] Prohibition… [Imagine] Mass buyback… [Imagine] A gun-free society... He liked that last line so much, he asked his readers to repeat it with him: "Let's say that once again: A gun-free society." Bliss, he thinks.

Debate ratings would indeed collapse. I’m not sure what he means by a...

    One of the more tiresome criticisms the establishment press still levels at New Media from time to time is that they, unlike those awful bloggers, make sure their facts are right before they go to print or post a story online. A story published at the New York Times on Wednesday about Donald Trump's wife Melania shows what obvious rubbish that claim often is. The Old Gray Lady had to issue six corrections over two days to (one would hope) finally get it right. One of the errors was so pathetically obvious that it's hard to imagine that Guy Trebay's...

    26 year-old gunman Chris Harper Mercer opened fire on the campus on Thursday, killing nine people and wounding seven. Mercer reportedly singled out Christians for death by asking the religion of potential victims before firing on them. Mercer was then shot and killed by law enforcement. In a series of tweets on October 2, Woods argued that because the victims were Christian, both resident Obama and the media would lose interest in the story. "NY Times writes a front page story about a hate massacre targeting Christians without using the word 'Christians,'" Woods tweeted, linking to story in the New...

Last week's CNN poll shows Carly Fiorina, the former business executive, rocketing to the top tier of the Republican presidential race. She has 15 percent support, up from 3 percent weeks earlier. Meantime, the previously unassailable front-runner, Donald Trump, is suddenly hemorrhaging support, falling to 24 percent from 32 percent, while Ben Carson has dropped to 14 percent from 19 percent. Then there's Scott Walker, who just two months ago was the front-runner in Iowa, then saw his support vanish. He has now dropped out. This dizzying reshuffle of...

    GLAAD – an LGBT advocacy organization – has released a media guide (“The Papal Visit: A journalist’s guide to reporting on Pope Francis and the LGBT community”) encouraging journalists to favor its narrative during Pope Francis’ visit to the United States beginning on the 23rd of September until the 27th. For more information on the organization take a look here.In one sense, GLAAD’s hope of “presenting the story of LGBT Catholics and their loved ones” is positive in that, I believe, we can all agree that more attentive listening and dialogue is needed. That said, in accordance with Church teachings, this dialogue...

    Here’s conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh’s take on why Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina is doing so well at the moment… From The Blaze: Rush Limbaugh said on his radio program Friday that he believes the mainstream media is “hyping” Carly Fiorina in an attempt to “get rid” of Republican frontrunner Donald Trump. Limbaugh offered the theory after a listener called into his program complaining that the former Hewlett-Packard CEO is “evil” and will do “anything she can to get ahead.” The listener contended Fiorina is a “political insider” and asked “why the media keeps hiding everything on her.” “Because...

    When is America going to get serious about the problem of white kids getting suspended from school for nothing? By now you’ve heard the story of Ahmed Mohamed, crowned by the Daily Beast “The Muslim Hero America Has Been Waiting For” after the 14-year-old brought to school a beeping, strange-looking homemade concealed device that turned out to be a clock. School officials, thinking, as 95% of Americans would, that it kinda looked like a bomb, hauled him out of class. Police put him in handcuffs and, even after the confusion passed, the boy was suspended from school. ...The main difference...

    Christians need support in our country (and around the world), their religious liberty is at stake! Obama has been horrible, I will be great If I would have challenged the man, the media would have accused me of interfering with that man's right of free speech. A no win situation! If someone made a nasty or controversial statement about me to the president, do you really think he would come to my rescue? No chance! This is the first time in my life that I have caused controversy by NOT saying something. Am I morally obligated to defend the president...

    As Jeb Bush was campaigning to be governor of Florida, real estate mogul Donald Trump sought a meeting with one of Bush’s closest allies in the state legislature... Trump wanted to discuss his plan to loosen Florida’s gambling restrictions so he could partner with an Indian tribe and open a casino in the state. He met twice with the lawmaker, then-soon-to-be state House Speaker John Thrasher, once for lunch at the 21 Club in New York and again at Trump’s extravagant Palm Beach estate, Mar-a-Lago....

    Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. Ephesians 4:29 KJV How dare FOX News think they are the gatekeepers of who we can and cannot vote for? They are supposed to be an objective observer and reporter of the news and not a judge or jury. They have so lost track of their jobs this election cycle and have become by far the most corrupt news organization in America. They and their ongoing feud with Donald Trump has become an...
