A friend who stands with you in times of pressure is more valuable than a hundred friends who will stand with you in times of pleasure. Anonymous
A false friend and a shadow attend only while the sun shines. Benjamin Franklin
Americans cannot comprehend how their fellow countrymen could not love their country. But the left’s anti-Americanism is intrinsic to their entire worldview. Liberals promote the right of Islamic fanatics for the same reason they promote the rights of adulterers, pornographers, abortionists, criminals, and Communists. They instinctively root for anarchy against civilization. The inevitable logic of the liberal position is to be for treason. Ann Coulter
President Trump’s supporters are wondering why seemingly out of nowhere Matt Drudge has taken a sharp anti-Trump stance on his website, the Drudge Report. They no longer trust him or anything he says.
Drudge used to break stories before the mainstream media or Fox News even knew about them; they went to Drudge to find out the latest. Josh Bernstein recently exposed what has happened to Drudge. He says we should boycott Drudge and I agree with him.
Drudge Sells Out to Establishment
In a surprising turn, Drudge Report removed ads between the end of May and mid-July of this year according to Danny Rogers, a cofounder of the Global Disinformation Index, a project that’s analyzing domains to generate “risk ratings of the world’s media websites.” After noticing an absence of ads on Drudge around May 31, Rogers told BuzzFeed they didn’t see any ads on Drudge until about July 12.
During that period, Drudge cast off his advertising representative of close to 20 years, Intermarkets, in favor of a new and unknown company, Granite Cubed. It has no record in the digital ad industry, was only registered as a company in March of this year, and lists no staff or owners on its websites. Yet it just landed one of the biggest websites in the US.
Corporate records show that Granite Cubed is owned by Margaret Otto. According to Pathmatics, a marketing and advertising platform owned by Margaret Otto, she and her husband, Adrian, have close ties to both Matt Drudge and his father, Bob Drudge. The Ottos have known the Drudges since 1999. Pathmatics, a marketing intelligence platform, estimates that over the past 12 months the site generated more than $30 million in ad revenue. Another estimate from the Global Disinformation Index, to be published in a report next month, pegs revenue at $9 million per year.
The Otto’s also acquired another company in 2017 founded by Bob Drudge called Refdesk. Adrian Otto joined Google Cloud in 2017 and is their technical director. Matt Drudge is now in bed with Google and Alphabet Inc., the parent company of Google.
Alphabet Inc., Google subsidiaries, and YouTube all detest President Trump and everything on the Drudge Report has switched from supporting conservative sites and our president to leftwing media who despises President Donald Trump and his supporters. Drudge’s links now go to mainstream media like CNN and MSNBC. Conservative media is rarely seen anymore.
Drudge gave up his relationship with his conservative advertising company of 20 years and joined with the enemies of freedom because they are family vested via Matt’s father, Bob Drudge.
It all makes for a startling shift for a publisher best known for a strategy rooted in changing nothing about his site’s operation. It’s also causing the ad industry to look closely at the mysterious new firm and its high-profile customer.
Bigger bucks must be involved. Shades of Anthony Scaramucci.
So, who is Whatfinger? Their tagline reads, “The Relentless Pursuit of Creating the Greatest Aggregate Link News Site on Earth.” And according to their about page, “Whatfinger News was founded by military people and we are 100% unapologetic for being patriotic. That doesn’t mean we don’t show opposing views, sites and papers. We do, and label them on the homepage in sections as right wing or left wing.” It was originally started as a blog shortly before Trump’s election. For privacy reasons, Whatfinger News has kept their owners anonymous. This is smart in today’s doxing society.
Their conservative factual reporting comes from sites such as Breitbart and the Daily Wire. They also frequently source from the Geller Report and the Gateway Pundit. While they do occasionally source from Reuters, this is rare as the majority are right leaning. In general, all aggregated news favors the right.
Whatfinger News shows left-wing and right-wing news but calls out the fake news. They will put the same links other aggregates show, in their “Fake News Quarantine Area.” This is news that is based on anonymous sources and almost always put out by major so-called mainstream news to hurt Trump or Republicans.
They have been under DDos attacks daily mostly from Islamic countries. They had to put up a first-rate Firewall to stop the site from being taken down…which is common for today’s conservative websites who tell the truth.
They have been shadow-banned by Facebook, Reddit, and other sites for daring to post actual news and truth on Islam as well as President Trump. Whatfinger says that, “If you are not attacking Trump and promoting Islam or insane issues like transgender insanity, the media attacks and bans you.” Link
Drudge is lost, but an even better website has arisen…use them, they’re great and they’re on our side. Word of mouth has them growing by leaps and bounds.
