Was ABC's "Last Man Standing" cancelled because of Trump?

ABC Cancels Conservative Tim Allen Sitcom ‘Last Man Standing’ Despite Strong Ratings

ABC has cancelled its Tim Allen-starring sitcom Last Man Standing after six seasons, the network confirmed Wednesday.

ABC and production partner 20th Century Fox TV had reportedly usually negotiated over licensing fees for the comedy series before each season; this time, according to Deadline, there was no negotiation, and the network simply pulled the plug on the show.

The sitcom starred Allen as Mike Baxter, a marketing director for a sporting goods store who happened to be politically conservative, and his relationship with his wife Vanessa and his three teenage daughters. The show was one of the few (if not the only) broadcast network sitcom to appeal to conservative, blue-collar America, a true oddity since Allen has noted in interviews that the program was written by liberal writers.

A sixth-season episode found Baxter blasting politically correct “microaggressions” and drawing up a speech for his daughter’s graduation: “To quote future Nobel Prize winner Lee Greenwood, ‘I’m proud to be an American.’ Not just because I have the right to speak my mind or carry an awesome gun, but because it’s the land of opportunity. Some whiny babies might not think so, but in America, if you work hard, anyone can be successful.”

Allen himself is also conservative, and has in the past expressed support for President Donald Trump. In March, the actor told Jimmy Kimmel he had attended Trump’s inauguration and that conservatives in Hollywood need to be “real careful” when discussing their political beliefs.
....

Last Man Standing fans took to Twitter Wednesday and Thursday to urge another network, perhaps Netflix or CMT, to pick it up, while some accused the ABC of axing the show for political reasons.

Conservative group launches anti-Elizabeth Warren initiative

By Seth McLaughlin - The Washington Times - Monday, April 17, 2017

Some conservatives say it’s time to begin attacking Sen. Elizabeth Warren, hoping to dent the liberal icon’s political ascent as she begins a book tour widely seen as a testing ground for a 2020 presidential bid.

Republicans have been divided over how to handle Ms. Warren, a first-term senator from Massachusetts and one of the Democratic Party’s biggest draws. Some prominent leaders have sought to boost her profile, figuring she’d be an easier opponent to defeat in 2020 than others.

But America Rising Political Action Committee says Ms. Warren needs to be taken down a few pegs, so the group is beginning an initiative to put her under the microscope as she kicks off a tour in New York Tuesday for her latest book, “This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class.”

“Our goal is to make sure there is a lot of negative information flowing around Sen. Warren,” said Colin Reed, executive director of America Rising PAC. “We view this book launch as the soft launch of her presidential campaign, and what I don’t want is for her to have a 2018 re-election to the Senate that she then parlays into the start of the presidential run without any roadblocks in her way.”

Time to Boot Senator Bob Casey, PA

Time to boot Senator Bob Casey in Pennsylvania! This man has gone insane. He makes Elizabeth Warren look conservative! I am not sure what happened to Bob, but he is nothing like his father. He has done little for Pennsylvania and now refuses to work with any but the most liberal of Democrats, and obviously refuses to work with any Republican. Support me in my bid to oust him. Andrew Shecktor for U.S. Senate in 2018 for Pennsylvania.

Conservative radio host: 'Evidence is overwhelming' of Obama spying

By Olivia Beavers

A conservative radio talk show host slammed the Obama administration on Sunday over

claims of spying and wiretapping, saying, “the evidence is overwhelming.”

Mark Levin, who is also a constitutional lawyer, told “Fox & Friends” that the focus should not be on President Donald Trump’s tweets alleging the wiretapping, it should be about the Obama administration overreaching with its spy program.

“The evidence is overwhelming. This is not about President Trump’s tweeting. This is about the Obama administration spying, and the question is not whether it spied,” he said.

“The question is who they did spy on and the extent of the spying that is the Trump campaign, the Trump transition, Trump surrogates.”

Levin listed his reasoning and offered evidence, including saying his sources tell him “the FBI sought and was granted a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court” order.

“This is spying.”

Obama Plans Crusade Against Trump

[This guy really has to go - Along with George Soros!]

ET on line reported: "Obama's backwards hat was the talk of Twitter, with one [liberal] tweet reading, ‘Obama got his hat to the back like it's 1990 and trump isn't president. GET YO A** BACK HERE… with respect, sir.'"

Liberals don't have to worry: Obama intends to be the most politically active ex-president in modern times. He's tossing out the old rule book that says former presidents should remain silent for a decent interval to give their successors in the White House time and space to govern.

Spurred into action by his two significant others—Michelle and Valerie Jarrett—the 55-year-old ex-president is preparing to lead the progressive charge against President Donald Trump.

"He's planning to make speeches and speak out forcefully against Trump," said one of his friends. "He's going to fight Trump's executive actions, fire up the leftwing resistance to the Trump administration, and pave the way for the Democrats to retake Congress.

"He's been given assurances by George Soros and other liberal money men that they will make a mighty war chest available for his crusade against Trump," the friend continued.

"Among Democrats, there is no one on the national scene with the status and popularity to match Obama's. He's a towering figure on the left, with a constituency that is angry and begging for a leader to steer them in the right direction.

"And he has every intention of answering their call."

Democrats boycot HSS, treasury nominees

(CNN)In a surprise turn of events, Senate Democrats announced Tuesday morning that they are boycotting a committee vote on two of President Donald Trump's Cabinet nominees, drawing fury from Republicans across the aisle.

The Senate Finance Committee was set to vote on the nominations of Rep. Tom Price to lead the Department of Health and Human Services and Steve Mnuchin for Treasury Secretary.
But minutes after the vote was scheduled to take place, Democrats on the panel convened an impromptu news conference to announce that they refused to participate in the proceeding, all as their Republican colleagues were waiting in a hearing room down the hallway.
