Is Obama Trying To Shut Down A Major Conservative Website?

The Drudge Report is one of the most popular news sites on the Internet.

And it leans right.

So when the site suffered a 90-minute Denial of Service attack, founder Matt Drudge indicated the federal government may have been behind the attack.

Drudge took to Twitter and voiced his suspicions about the attack.

Drudge has also sided with Donald Trump in questioning the largely fact-free story that Russian hackers connected to their government interfered with the election.

He also indicated that the attack occurred while he was posting responses to the Obama administration’s announcement of sanctions and other measures to “punish” Russia for hacking email accounts connected to Obama’s political allies.

One response that was featured as the banner story on the Drudge Report was a tweet from Russia’s United Kingdom embassy mocking Obama and claiming the American people couldn’t wait for his administration to leave office.

The embassy was responding to the report that the Obama administration expelled 35 Russian diplomats from America.

Drudge is just offering speculation that the federal government is behind the attack on his website.

He has yet to offer definitive proof.

But given Obama’s IRS targeting of Tea Party groups for political harassment, it’s difficult to give this administration the benefit of the doubt.

Do you think the federal government was behind the cyber attack on the Drudge Report?

    It’s not surprising. This is the same strategy Obozo and his cronies have used to deal with Conservative groups (remember Lois Lerner & the IRS?), Christian organizations, the Judicial Watch, and, of course, Fox News–the most watched cable news network (that has more viewers than all others combined).

    It doesn’t lean right. In fact, there is no such thing as “leaning” to the right. Facts matter and facts determine what gets written about. Stories that seem to support a patriotic view do express a patriotic view. That’s not leaning right. By the same token stories that express unpatriotic, Marxist, Fascist, and cockeyed views of reality don’t lean left, they are what they are: leftist, Democrat, unpatriotic, Marxist, Fascist, and cockeyed.

    Now wait a minute, we don’t hack other people or countries, only Russia and other countries hack us… Obama said so, and if he said so, it’s true… remember how (Fakely) indignant he got when Russia hacked the election and caused poor Hillary to lose? But of course we are not to pay any attention to what the emails said… Oh woe to us stupid sheeple that do not believe our king Obama… What is wrong with us, why are we not bowing down and kissing his rump? (He’s got no pride, he’s kissing Soros’s.) Now let’s get right in line, right behind Hillary and Willy Boy and pucker up! In your dreams Obama, in your egotistical dreams…

      And do you remember all of the electioneering that the US did in Israel. No hacking but obvious US interference in a foreign election.

        Obama thinks we’re too stupid to figure out that what he did was actually far worse and far more dishonest. Obama actually tried to stop Netanyahu from being re-elected by financially interfering with their election! The only thing the hacking, or should I say the DNC insider email releases did, (That’s actually what they were! Remember Seth Rich?… the one shot in the back of the head in july? A Clinton casualty I’m sure! Julian Assange later hinted that he was their inside man.) was to expose the deep corruption that our government has spent years hiding and didn’t want known! But the whole cult that follows Obama are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites, cheats and liars!

    There really are no words to describe how vile, criminal and disgusting this administration has been. Yes, we cannot wait for zero to LEAVE office. I wonder how many listening devices he plans to leave in the white house. Even tho it gets swept prior to the new president going in, I m sure his rotten ass will try.

    • Dick

      Not only would I have the White House swept for bugs by MY OWN PEOPLE after Obama left, I would also have the White House fumigated.

      • SeaDragon

        I think that’s why President elect Trump doesn’t want to stay at the WH too much. It will take at least a 1000 years to get the stench of sufur out of there.

  • Dick

    If Obama can have no proof of Russian hacking the election, Drudge also needs no proof that Obama caused no access to his site.

  • Snaps

    There is as much factual evidence that Obama was behind the DOS to Drudge as there is that Russia hacked the election. But Obama would have us believe only the latter.

  • Kevin Morrison

    Funny that these attacks cannot be traced by REAL professional IT guys but yet Obama is for sure the Russians hacked the DNC. So how exactly can a moron seemingly know how to do something that the tech sector cant? O, thats right, just as Drudge can only speculate, so it must be that the Obama administration cant do anything more!

    • Crystal

      After letting Hillary off, and the things Obama’s gotten away with… can we even really trust what the FBI or the CIA say anymore?

  • Karma

    The only thing that i would be surprised to hear about would be a report of our sorry excuse of a govt was actually doing something to benefit us, the regular taxpayiing citizen..nothing else…them attack the drudge report for no reason ? Hail they have no problems attacking countries for no other reason than to cover their own sure they would have no problem attacking the drudge..

    It’s not just the Drudge Report that is being picked on. Now Michael Savage’s radio show has been taken off the air on some of his largest markets, as of tomorrow’s show. As far as I know, this has been done in Detroit, New York, and I believe Pennsylvania. Michael Savage has not given a reason, and I know I’m not pleased about the left personality they have started with in my area as of tomorrow. They are trying to dumb-down the population, and slowly take the best people off the airwaves, as well as off the internet, thinking they have the upper hand!! After the 20th, there will be a new FCC coming in, which should be able to fix the fiasco that they believe was a Godsend up to this point.

    I am sure that this will not result in a scandal.

  • Richard Bagenstose

    leaning right means the truth , leaning left = lies, if anyone is hacking it’s obomas trolls , and then the hackers hack them , as you know they are not able to do any thing right, as for oboma ,he is finaly losing what little sanity he had , if he ever had any,

  • Bill610

    Not that I’d be particularly shocked at the government engaging in this sort of censorship, but why bother taking down a site that creates little if any original content, but merely aggregates news that’s already out there?

  • BooBooBaby

    I would NOT put it past them!
