Terminated for uplifting Tiger King Hillbillies

The red and blue divide in America has never been bigger than it is today. Our polarized country clearly can’t see things the same way when it comes to even trivial things like what to laugh about or who is considered a celebrity. I thought there was a slight divide 20 years ago but today it’s miles wide. 

Nowhere has it been as obvious as with a show like Tiger King. My interest in the show was very recent (I binged it in the 2021 Christmas holidays after Season 2 came out) and it propelled me to reach out to the stars of the show thinking it would be a good boost for the entertainment publications I was writing for. I interviewed John Reinke from Tiger King and I believe it was a strong interview which was ultimately thought provoking. For many publications, it was great and I got many compliments for stirring a fruitful discussion. EXCLUSIVE Marc Ang Interviews John Reinke From Tiger King.

But not for one publication. Well initially the editor loved it until her audience reacted like a typical woke cancel culture mob would. Ultimately this cost me a regular gig with them, a Hollywood based entertainment based online paper, which actually opened up a fascinating story for the record.

Delusional or gaslighting Harry Reid?

Former-Senator Harry Reid

Articles released left and right on the passing of Harry Reid have induced head scratching moments and many times, cringe. Ultimately when someone passes it’s indeed appropriate to look back on their accomplishments and as Senate Leader, he certainly was impactful – Reid led the Senate Democratic Caucus from 2005 to 2017 and was the Senate Majority Leader from 2007 to 2015. I will also give credit where due: he did not prepare a week long ceremony for us to have to endure through the mainstream media. 

But it was the reaction of key public voices that compel me to make a few observations.

Out of other people’s money, they come for you

Opnion: Even the California liberal elite are jumping ship from the socialist brigade in D.C. that now wants to confiscate wealth, not just tax it. Elon Musk recently tweeted about the Marxist-like legislators saying, “Eventually, they run out of other people’s money, and then they come for you.”

The latest threat to Capitalism is the proposal by liberal Oregon Senator Ron Wyden to tax unrealized investment gains of billionaires in stock or real estate.

Now, no one feels sorry for billionaires— but they are the innovators who change the world, create thousands of jobs, and produce tremendous wealth for millions of Americans.

Zuckerberg spent $419 million to swing votes

In addition to the Federalist Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway’s new book “Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections” a New York Post analysis published yesterday reports Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg spent $419 million that “significantly increased Joe Biden’s vote margin in key swing states. In places like Georgia, where Biden won by 12,000 votes, and Arizona, where he won by 10,000, the spending likely put him over the top. This unprecedented merger of public election offices with private resources and personnel is an acute threat to our republic and should be the focus of electoral reform efforts moving forward.”

The Post writes, “The 2020 election wasn’t stolen — it was likely bought by one of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful men pouring his money through legal loopholes.”

School COVID Rules destroying kids

Opinion: When Cynthia Rivera’s 17 year old son, a junior at El Dorado High School in Placentia got a call to the principal’s office during his football practice, suspension was the last thing he expected. The urgency in the call sounded like there could have been a car accident, and maybe one of his friends was hurt. Different scenarios raced through his mind, but instead he was greeted by a panicked headmaster requiring that he not participate in football for 14 days because he had been exposed to COVID in one of his classes.

Cynthia and her son were shocked. He had just tested negative earlier that week and was displaying no symptoms of COVID.  Taking these two facts to the principal was not enough. He was operating under strict rules from above and it did not matter that Cynthia’s son was healthy and did not actually have COVID.
