With the success of his video birthday tribute to Paul Harvey, Yergz decided to feature another great broadcaster that he admires; Howard Stern. Yergz starts off with Howard's early beginnings in New York as a child in his father's production studio, before moving on to Boston University and WTBU and "The King Schmaltz Bagel Hour."

Next, it's off to the Developmental Years for Howard, beginning in Briarcliff,...

In this episode, we take a look at historical comparisons of poll numbers to fund raising. While Yergz reminds you that the only poll that counts is the one of Election Day.

Yergz suggests that you "follow the money." Not like in a fraud investigation, but the totality of the individual campaign contributions for each quarter. This is a challenge to the traditional amount of weight placed on polling. But due to some outs...

Going into Friday's interview, and confirmed then, and with things I've learned, after, I expected to not get the whole truth.

This description is short, in the interest of time, so that I can get it dropped and available. That being said, I've already been accused of slander and defamation; a tactic the Skelton campaign used before. Nevertheless, my 20+ pages of show notes will show otherwise.

For your review...

In the interest of time, as I did with Krista Arndt, I'm posting this video without a detailed description. Due to some additional obligations, I will update the description, especially for metadata purposes, by the end of the weekend.

In this episode Yergz discusses extremism, once again, partially because this job is never done, and partially because it's also a set-up for the series of interviews with School Board Candidates from his hometown Boyertown, PA.

Yergz is not a Democrat! Hasn't ever been. Ever. As such, he sides with Howard Stern in a definition of "Woke," for what is a good thing and what isn't. Howard remains the "K...

First in a series of interviews with Boyertown School District Candidates that are partnered with Boyertown Forward. My research has shown that a previous topic from Season One, who was mentioned in the previous video, Moms For Liberty. While we at Up The Middle don't "endorse" candidates, we DO tell you who are dangerous to vote for. These two gentlemen get it!

In this episode we take a look at the recent comments of soon-to-be former Utah Senator Mitt Romney. He brings valid arguments to the damage done by Fox News and far right talking heads such as Sean Hannity, Dan Bongino, Tucker Carlson and others.

While the news outlets covering this story are more Left Leaning, the man, himself, certainly is not.

Mitt Romney, you will be missed!

In this episode, we look at the recent discovery of Nejwa Ali, an agent of the PLO possibly hidden within the Department of Homeland Security.

Her use of The First Amendment is actually what got her in trouble! But it was the media that also made mistakes. A simple look into her work history reveals that the "Biden DHS" employee is, for what it's worth, actually a "Trump DHS" employee.

This impromptu episode hit us this morning when we checked our social media and learned that a broadcasting icon would be 105 years old, today, on Labor Day.

Enjoy this tribute to the late Paul Harvey, as Yergz tells you about Paul's early life, then, after a commercial break, tells you "the rest of the story..."

Good Day!
