NewsmaxTV wasn’t a name many knew before 2020 but that changed during the Presidential Election as it became a Conservative Fox News alternative.
Newsmax’ wild popularity surge continued into 2021 with the addition of new shows and personalities, including advisors from the Trump campaign.
But that may change after this key Trump campaign advisor and popular Newsmax host made a shocking announcement about why he’s walking away.
The COVID pandemic and subsequent mandates seem to have brought out the worst in a lot of people.
It has become very evident that people will do almost anything if it means they’ll be “safe.”
It’s also become very evident that most companies could care less about their employees and are more worried about kowtowing to the Biden regime.
One rather unexpected example of this would be the recent shake up in the Newsmax world.
Steve Cortes was a key campaign adviser to Donald Trump during the 2020 election and had become a popular Newsmax host in recent months.
But Steve Cortes recently announced that he’s out.
Because apparently, like so many other corporations in America, Newsmax decided forcing vaccines on their employees was more important than pushing back against Biden’s tyrannical mandates.
Business Insider reports:
The news comes after comments made by Cortes on vaccine mandates directly clashed with reports of a vaccine mandate at Newsmax.
The writing was on the wall if Newsmax decided to comply with Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate.
Cortes declared that he would not be supporting the move by Newsmax.
“I will not comply w/ any organization’s attempt to enforce Biden’s capricious & unscientific Medical Apartheid mandate,” Cortes wrote.
Conservatives across the country blasted Newsmax for bowing down to the authoritarians and forcing its employees to get the untested vaccine.
In an attempt to save face, Newsmax issued a statement upon Cortes’s departure claiming they did not fire him over his refusal to get the vaccine.
“Any claims that Mr. Cortes was fired or quit Newsmax over vaccine issues is completely false,” a Newsmax statement read. “Newsmax never has had, nor does it ever plan to have, a vaccine mandate and we have taken every step to make sure staff can easily opt-out of Biden’s proposed OSHA requirements.”
Every morning the headlines are filled with another judge striking down Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandates, so the idea that Newsmax, a supposed Conservative outlet, would be so quick to comply is disturbing.
It’s a sad state of affairs when even the ones who claim to believe and uphold the Constitution are abiding by mandates out of fear.
