Drudge tries to spook Trump voters again

Another Friday and another hamfisted attempt by the Drudge Report to undermine support for President Donald John Trump. A week ago, Matt Drudge was sure that the trade war with Red China was going to do The Donald in because the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down. A week before that Drudge had us in a recession not caused by Red China.

Drudge has linked and bannered stories about wars with Iran, North Korea and Syria, which never materialized.

I get that he has to link breaking news, but his continual selection of anti-Trump tripe trotted out by the Fourth Estate borders on desperation, and it diminishes and discredits Drudge. He needs to show a little more discretion.

Which is a shame because America needs an alternative to the corporate internationalists who aid and abet Red China in its quest for world dominance.

Today’s Doomsday by Drudge was a link to a Bloomberg News story/column/report/fairy tale, “Trump Could Be the Next George H.W. Bush.”

What fresh DNC debate is this?

President Trump could indeed be a one-term president. Voters will decide that next year. But one thing he will never, ever be: George H.W. Bush. President Trump won the presidency without riding on Reagan’s tail.

In fact, he won despite George H.W. Bush and his son Fredo. I mean, Jeb!

Nevertheless, Michael Bloomberg — the Napoleon of news — gave Professor Karl W. Smith space to make this inane argument. And Drudge made it news.

Smith began his piece with a lie.

He wrote, “Donald Trump is dangerously close to becoming the first Republican president since George H.W. Bush to raise taxes.”

What a liar.

Bill Clinton raised taxes before his inauguration by making his income tax hike of 1993 retroactive to that January 1 — 20 days before taking office.

And of course, President Trump has not raised taxes. He cut them. Substantially, including a 40% reduction in corporate taxes.

But Professor Smith meant President Trump raised tariffs, as if no one else has. All presidents do because tariffs and other economic sanctions advance foreign policy.
