Matt Drudge, the pioneering editor of the Drudge Report, said that the American public is “sick” and easily exploited by repetitive, controlled corporate media – which could allow Hillary Clinton to win the White House, no matter her age or health.
In a rare and wide ranging interview with Alex Jones of InfoWars, Drudge kept away from Jones’ cameras but got behind a live microphone and shared his thoughts on the Internet, the political world, and the culture at large. The following is a partial transcript of Drudge’s interview.
Comments from the interview:
“Google News – hello anybody? The idiots reading that crap think there is actually a human there – there is no human there – you are being programmed to being automated even up to your news….a same corporate glaze over everything,” said Drudge.
“Stop operating in their playground, stop it,” said Drudge, asserting that people were being confined by what the likes of Facebook and Twitter defined as the Internet as a result of this “corporate makeover” of the web.
“I’m just warning this country that yes, don’t get into this false sense that you are an individual when you’re on Facebook, no you’re not, you’re a pawn in their scheme,” concluded Drudge.
On Internet platforms: “I need no traffic from Google. I don’t care if I get one traffic referral from Google or Bing or Yahoo or any of these others… Everybody’s so hungry for referrals, for likes. I don’t need to be liked.”
On Hillary Clinton: “Where I’ve had a lot of success is I’m getting people from both sides of the aisle. They’ve always said, ‘oh, he’s a right-wing gossip monger,’ mainly because of Lewinsky and those years–which, by the way, are back. Why aren’t we seeing Hillary’s lovers? … Where’s the coverup on this? So many issues that are suppressed on a daily basis.”
On the American public: “How sick are the American people right now? I’ve been saying that they could put Hillary Clinton’s brain in a jar in the Oval Office and she would be elected. People are really sick… People are willing to be made over in the image of these corporations.”
On the media’s treatment of Hillary: “You’ve got to be the greatest you can be now–now. Before this country is so completely altered and we’re left with Hillary’s brain in the Oval Office in a jar. Cuz that’s what we’re getting. She is old and she’s sick. She is 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. And then on the Today show with [Savannah Guthrie]–a head on a stick. She is not a viable, vibrant leader for this country of 300–including the illegals, 380 million–Americans. So the media is trying to put us to sleep.”
On national security–and impeachment: “We never even heard of ISIS until recently… Did you know it was designed to be confused with Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA)? Did you know that’s what it was? Because Darrell Issa was the enemy, at the time, of this administration. You know, there would have been a time that Obama could have been impeached. And I’m thinking the IRS scandal most likely; that would have been the one. You get the depositions going; you get the President under oath. You follow the chain. Obama most likely would have been impeached. Boehner decided, ‘we’re not going there. We’re not gonna have those cities burn. We’re not gonna do it; we’re not gonna impeach Obama.’ So, I felt Darrell Issa–that’s his name, right? Cuz I’m getting all, ‘eye-sul,’ ‘eye-suh,’ ‘iss-suh,’ Darrell Issa. I think they came up with the name ISIS to be confused with Darrell Issa. I’m really being honest with you… Designed to confuse. And then the President going, ‘it’s not even ISIS, it’s ISIL,’ or Ice, or IS. This is Dr. Seuss.”
