Unlikely Reception to Sanders on Fox News Worthy of Full Page Ad?

Bernie’s Fox News town hall event smashed expectations, and was apparently worthy of a little gloating from the network.

A peculiar thing occurred in American politics last week, but perhaps it shouldn’t be seen as such an outlier.

In a move that shocked many, including President Trump, Bernie Sanders had an amicable and poignant “Presidential Town Hall” on Fox News.  Given the wild biases of the mainstream media, particularly when it comes to the far-left leaning democratic socialist from Vermont, many assumed that Sanders’ appearance on Fox would have been a bloodbath.

Quite to the contrary, however, Sanders received a decidedly warm reception, even eliciting a hearty cheer from the crowd when explaining his “Medicare for all” wishes.

Perhaps the nation truly is suffering from Obamacare in ways that many of us may have predicted.

This sort of open-minded political positioning has become rare these days, thanks to the inflammatory practices of the mainstream media.  Fox’s gambling on Bernie paid off big-time, however, and the event has now received a full page advertisement in The Washington Post proclaiming its success.

The numbers were simply incredible:

The ad comes three days after nearly 2.6 million viewers tuned into Fox News’s town hall with Sanders on Monday night, making it the most-watched town hall of this campaign cycle so far, according to Nielsen Media Research.

The live event, co-moderated by “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier and “The Story” anchor Martha MacCallum, also delivered 489,000 viewers in the 25- to 54-year-old age bracket that many advertisers cater to.

Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, provided Fox News with a considerable ratings bump compared to the same day last year. The network saw an increase of 24 percent in total viewers and 40 percent in the 25- to 54-year-old demographic.

It certainly stands to reason that a great many of these viewers were tuning in in order to size up Sanders, who at this time appears to be the likely opponent for Donald Trump come 2020.

Even so, this willingness to engage productively in politics is something that many believed was waning in America in 2019, and could be seen as a positive sign moving forward.

Now just imagine what these numbers will look like when Trump takes the stage…Fox or not.

Biden Admin Cancels ‘God Bless the USA’ Singer Lee Greenwood from National Arts Council

The Biden administration has purged “God Bless the USA” singer Lee Greenwood from the National Council on the Arts.

The Joe Biden administration is continuing its purge of anyone connected to the Trump administration, this time by purging “God Bless the USA” singer Lee Greenwood from the National Council on the Arts.

In an interview with Fox News, Greenwood said he was shocked last week when Biden removed him from the NCA because he has served there since the George W. Bush administration.

Greenwood was appointed by Bush but was kept on during both the Obama and Trump administrations.

“As you know, [Trump] used my song…which is unilateral for me — it’s meant for all people, not just for a particular political party,” Greenwood told Fox. “So here we are now under the Biden administration, and he’s cleaned house. And finally, he’s fired a patriot.”

Greenwood added:

So, hearing now under the Biden administration and he’s cleaned house and finally he’s fired a patriot. I was quite shocked to tell you the truth. I didn’t get a phone call or letter. It was just an email.

I would like to think that it is. And I have to tell you in all our shows. I don’t care where they are. We always honor our veterans and want to particularly point out the fact we have this amazing show coming up October 12th in Huntsville, Alabama at the Bronze Center and set aside a lock of tickets which I do at most of our events.

This is a very special television production and more importantly we want to make sure that veterans and their caregivers can come to our performance. It’s going to be star-studded with 40 different singers singing the 40 years of hits that we have had. So, if your listeners will go to our website LeeGreenwood.com and adopt a vet. For $100 you can put a vet and caregiver in a seat to watch this amazing television production.

State Police Force Faces Mass Resignations Over Vaccine Mandate

That can’t be good…

Published

on

Americans these days appear to be more concerned than ever with their bodily sovereignty, and this could create an enormous shift in the way that some folks choose their careers.

In particular, the increase in vaccine mandates among certain professions has driven a number of American workers to seek new employment, including a number of healthcare workers in New York State.  In fact, the exodus in NYC could be so significant that the National Guard and foreign doctors may need to be brought in to fill the gap.

Meanwhile, in neighboring Massachusetts, it’s the police force that could soon be gutted.

The State Police Association of Massachusetts (SPAM) said dozens of troopers have submitted their resignation papers as a result of the state’s COVID vaccine mandate.

The state is requiring all executive department employees to show proof of vaccination by October 17, or risk losing their jobs.

The Union released a statement in which they suggested that these officers would seek employment in places with “reasonable” practices instead.

To date, dozens of troopers have already submitted their resignation paperwork, some of whom plan to return to other departments offering reasonable alternatives such as mask wearing and regular testing.  The State Police are already critically short staffed and acknowledged this by the unprecedented moves which took troopers from specialty units that investigate homicides, terrorism, computer crimes, arsons, gangs, narcotics, and human trafficking, and returned them to uniformed patrol.

The debate over vaccine mandates has been a heated one here in the United States, and with the federal government now solidly pushing for more of these regulations to go into place, there is no end in sight for the argument.
