The Drudge Report, once a go-to site for Trumpism, now seems unapologetically anti-Trump, in its often trademark snarky style.

Are Trump supporters then weary?

The August jobs report “unexpectedly” reminds us that never have so many Americans been at work. The 3.7 percent unemployment rate continues to be the lowest peacetime unemployment figure in 50 years. Black and Hispanic unemployment remain at record lows. Workers’ wages continue to rise. Talk of recession is belied by low interest, low inflation, low unemployment, and a strong stock market. The result is that millions of Americans enjoy far better lives than they had in 2016.

I deleted drudge from my bookmarks about a month ago due to all the anti Trump BS. I used to check it several times per day. Don’t miss it.

Trump exhaustion?!?

Snort.

But here's a quote for any afflicted...

THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.

Thomas Paine.

FWIW, all the Trump supporters I know, me included, are the broken glass variety.

We will not know until 2020 how many, if any, of the corrupt FBI, CIA, and Justice Department officials acted unlawfully in addition to unethically.

2020? We’ll never know about it. Period.

Drudge is a waste of time. Haven’t been there in a long time. Matt is a compromised homosexual — he’s not on our side.

Trump supporters? No, I don't think so. But you don't win with just your base.

Someone here on FR, recommended libertydaily.com a few years ago. It’s laid out just like Drudgereport, but without the Left leaning slanted articles and headlines that started to appear about the same time.

People should wake up to the fact that Trump is a NYer with a NYer’s keen sense of humor. Rough and truthful with an eye towards the absurdities of life in the swamp. I realize that a lot of people were brought up differently but it is time to accept his hilarious tweets for what they are and grow a sense of humor.

I haven’t even looked at Drudge for at least 2 years. He turned against Trump long ago.

Drudge started posting way too many stories provided by axiom, a self-proclaimed news source.

It is interesting to note that all the people who point to Trump’s “favorability” ratings have even lower ratings than HE does. Democrats in COngress? Please. They are in single digits. “Journalists” at the newspapers? Single digits. CNN or MSNBC? The Garden Channel has more viewers.

Haven’t figured out if Drudge is anti-Trump, or simply
anti-establishment......

Bill Clinton survived impeachment, even w/ a suck-up media, and femiNazis Live-To-Regret defense: "it's only sex".......
Clinton fought back tooth-and-nail, focusing on a booming economy, not that he was facing disbarment;

An arch miscreant and liar left office with stellar popularity and a plan to exploit the presidency he demeaned.
That suggests "the people" apparently liked the idea he fought back against the impeachment-mongers in the House.

=========================================

STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE-—Bill Clinton gets impeached

David Schippers was asked by his friend, Congressman Henry Hyde, to be Chief Investigative Counsel for the US House Judiciary Committee. Schippers, a lifelong Democrat, accepted and took the job in April 1998. The Hyde Committee was holding an inquiry on whether Clinton had committed impeachable offences in his handling of the Paula Jones sexual harassment suit..... during which Clinton committed perjury regarding his affair with Monica Lewinsky. The committee in December 1998 voted to impeach Clinton........a decision supported by Schippers.

On December 10, 1998, Schippers said to the committee:
“The President, then,
<><> has lied under oath in a civil deposition,
<><> he lied under oath in a criminal grand jury.
<><> he lied to the people,
<><> he lied to his Cabinet,
<><> he lied to his top aides,
<><> he lied under oath to the Congress of the United States.
"There’s no one left to lie to.”

Upon the passage of H. Res. 611, Clinton was impeached on December 19, 1998, by the House of Representatives on grounds of perjury to a grand jury (by a 228–206 vote) and obstruction of justice (by a 221–212 vote).

The Senate voted not to remove the impeached president.

=================================

<><> Lewinsky recently came clean; a sitting President, Bill Clinton, suborned perjury from her;
<><> Suborning perjury is an impeachable offense;
<><> another penalty was loss of Clinton's law license.
<><> all of Clinton’s crimes happened while he was a sitting president:
<><> 47 Oral Office visits from Monica; subornation of perjury, lying under oath, hush money, etc etc etc.
<><> Clinton lied under oath about suborning Monica.
<><> Five charges against him were for obstruction of justice.
<><> Clinton had Lewinsky give Linda Tripp written instructions on how to properly perjure herself in the Willey sex matter.
<><> Bill’s pal, Vernon Jordan, arranged a $40,000-per-year cushy govt job for Lewinsky;
<><> she got the job after she signed but before she filed a falsified affidavit saying she had NOT had sex with the president.
<><> Clinton's pal, UN Amb Bill Richardson, personally visit Lewinsky at the Watergate to offer her a govt job to shut her up.
<><> Mueller's report contains the claim that Russia taped Bill Clinton's phone sex with Monica Lewinsky

The left continues to make the same mistake of assuming that all conservatives are a monolithic bloc. Thus, when they see a small reduction in one area, they assume it applies to all areas and draw the wrong conclusions.

I use Drudge for all the links he has.

Is there an alternative site I can use?

I’m not sure why Drudge, or anyone posting here, would link to articles hidden behind paywalls. I know of no one who subscribes to fish wraps.

I really like Whatfinger.com. Since it was recommended, I always go there first thing. It is beyond question, a site for Conservatives.
