When Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” returns to network TV, it’s bringing the Constitution with it — especially the Second Amendment.

According to an interview on Closer Weekly, Allen — whose show is returning to the primetime schedule this fall on Fox after being controversially canceled on ABC — says the series is going to be tackling gun rights when it comes back to the air.

It would be difficult if the show didn’t, of course. “Last Man Standing” stars Allen as Mike Baxter, the owner of a chain of sporting goods stores known as Outdoor Man.

Of course, Outdoor Man isn’t all that different than Dick’s Sporting Goods — and we know exactly what’s been going on with them.

In the interview, Allen mentioned that his character “owns a sporting-goods store that has firearms, so we’re going to have to deal with that somehow.”

Nevertheless, he’s excited to get back to pushing some very hot buttons.

“I’m excited because we have so much left in our tank,” Allen said. “There were a lot of stories we hadn’t gotten to.”

Allen — much like another network star who’s seen a recent resurrection, Roseanne Barr — is a supporter of Donald Trump, and “Last Man Standing” had often evinced conservative viewpoints even though Allen’s character was typically the only conservative in his family.

The show revolved around Baxter and his interactions with his three adult daughters and family, all of whom were considerably more liberal than he was.

While the series had performed well on ABC during its run, the show was canceled in spite of good ratings — leading many fans to believe that a sympathetic conservative character in the era of Trump simply wasn’t something that a network was willing to risk.

The success of “Roseanne” changed that matrix — and Gary Newman and Dana Walden, the chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group, said they decided it a risk worth taking, particularly giving the outpouring of fan support.

“‘Last Man Standing’ ended too soon and the outcry from the fans has been deafening,” they said, according to Fox News.

“We’ve wanted to put the show back together since its final taping a year ago, and Tim never gave up hope either. Thanks to its millions of devoted viewers and the irrepressible Tim Allen, we haven’t seen the last of ‘Last Man Standing.’”

And apparently, we haven’t seen the last of Mike Baxter’s controversial opinions, either.

How the series is going to handle firearms in the wake of shootings in Parkland, Florida and Santa Fe, Texas is going to be interesting to see, particularly given the situation with Dick’s Sporting Goods.

However, given Allen’s opinion and how the show tends to slant, we think conservatives are going to be happy about it.

Uh---all three daughters are more liberal than him? No. Whoever wrote this article doesn't watch the show. Youngest daughter Eve is as conservative as her dad. And wife Vanessa is middle of the road most of the time, with a slight lean to the left.

I would love to see Roseanne taken up by Fox! ABC is a lib-tard network that NEVER backs shows with American values in them! They were just chomping at the bit to nail Roseanne for simply being the outspoken person she's ALWAYS been! The Twitter joke was just that a little joke but in today's era of ultra political "correctness" it's dangerous to say ANYTHING! Is it "racist" for me to state that Barack Obama looks like Curious George? Hey, it's a fact! Can facts be "racist"?!

I have never seen an episode of "Last Man Standing" as I have a long history of avoiding ALL sitcoms. But, I just might have to watch if Tim is going to stand up for the Bill of Rights and especially the 2nd Amendment. It is long passed the time that we should have more balance in the ideology presented on TV. Conservatives need to have their voices heard. Snowflakes who need safe spaces will not be forced to watch.

Maybe Fox should pick up Roseanne's Show! The Liberals can slam Trump and his Family - but are weak kneed when it comes to a Liberal being slammed. Go for It Tim!

It won't be long before they'll cancel it. Anything conservative doesn't last. MARK MY WORD.

Great to have you back. Now let’s get Roseanne show onto the same channel.

Love the show, love the second amendment, but I think it's time entertainers left politics alone. Mainly libtards, but let's be honest, none of the have a firm grasp on how true Americans live day to day. They are all blinded by the lights of Hollywood.

Welcome back Tim!!! It's about TIMe! Anyway (sorry, bad pun) this may be LIKE DICKS, but it is NOT DICKS Sporting Goods. It is "Outdoor Man" and it is a great show and if they want to carry firearms, then by all means, do so proudly! I doubt it will be all about guns and Trump, but a mans struggle of being a boy who said he wanted to be surrounded by women, and he got his wish. Unfortunately, it wasn't what he thought it would be like! (BTW, I am too surrounded by women)

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
