What Does It Mean To Have Social Media Followers?

We live in an age of abundant censorship. From Joe Rogan to Dan Bongino, platforms are becoming the gatekeepers. What draws you to a social media account? What moves people Does a high follower count equate to high quality count? Do follower counts even matter? Do you have to engage in an outrage to get followers?

Do you want 100 social media friends, or do you want 10 authentically engaged friends? What is the difference between misinformation and censorship?

How many social media platforms can we handle? What if Joe Rogan just decides to start his own streaming platform? Would you follow?

Joe Rogan, Neil Young and Spotify: The Culture War Is Here! — The Morning Rumble with Tony Katz

 The Left desperately wants to hold on to the culture, but their aggressive push of censorship has America seeing what they are really about. Whether it’s Spotify or YouTube or Facebook, Americans realize that Big Tech and the Woke-Left are not their friends.

Your Morning TK Top 3

Here are the top three stories Tony is talking about today. Want more? Subscribe and get the Top 6 stories each and every weekday morning. You’ll have the facts, Tony’s take and even some video that you can share on social media.

Tony Katz Has The Top Three Stories Of The Morning

1 – 76% of Americans don’t agree with President Biden on how to choose a nominee to the Supreme Court, from Twitchy.com

Tony Says –

Every logical person knows you don’t choose a Supreme Court justice, or an employee or anything else, on the basis of race and race alone. Isn’t that the type of bigotry we are supposed to be opposed to?

This poll comes from ABC News, and if you listen to my radio shows you know I have little faith in polls. But, on this, I’m hoping it’s accurate. Because while I have little faith in polls, I still have faith in Americans.

2 – The iPhone will now come with both a “pregnant man” and “pregnant person” emoji, from Fox 59

Tony Says –

It’s hard to escape the wokeness that wants to overtake us. And, yes, if you want to lie to yourself, you can say the emoji is just of a person who ate too much pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. But, what you need to do is reject this misinformation, and make sure your kids do the same. Men don’t, and can’t, have babies. It’s science. And, at last look, we are supposed to follow science.

3 – Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker has a three point lead over Sen. Rafael Warnock, from Outkick

Tony Says –

There are actually a few story lines in this story. But, the big one for me is what this might say about President Donald Trump going into 2024. For some, this will signal that Trump’s reaction to the 2020 election may have turned off voters in the Ga special election…costing Republicans control of the Senate. Others will remember that Democrats were screaming at the time about $2000 handouts, and Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell was opposed to that much money, and THAT is what gave the victory to the Democrats.

But a year later, Walker is gladly accepting Trump’s endorsement, and Warnock has no victories to which he can point. Trump is not the liability that the label “Democrat” is.

Canadian Truckers Want Freedom. US Moms Want Low Gas Prices. — The Morning Rumble with Tony Katz

Canadian Truckers are fighting mandates from the government. It’s a huge protest, involving thousands of truckers and millions of people. And it is getting NO media coverage. Are you shocked?

Meanwhile, gas prices are going higher and suburban soccer moms are gonna have to accept an honest reality for 2022.

Democrats See Chaos On The Border As An Opportunity, Not A Crisis — Tony Katz Today Podcast

On This Episode:

Take a moment for Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Navy Seals train in parks in the cold, rugged, coastal terrain of Washington State. A local group has called for it to end over concerns of the impact on people using the parks. Weakness will get us killed.

Virginia State Delegate, Nick Freitas, has had it with Democrats saying every policy disagreement is racism.

On The View Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar had a conversation about who Biden will pick for SCOTUS and it was even more appalling than you would expect.

The Jen Psaki press briefing and more lies about the cost of Build Back Better. 
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg uses identity politics to push lies about America’s infrastructure. 

The Big Story:

We have been lied to so often, that we have become practically numb to being lied to. We are the frog in the water that doesn’t know the water is coming to a boil.
The story, with accompanying videos, of illegal immigrants being dispersed across the country, is just another example. 
We were told that the border is safe and secure. Is it? If the Government can’t be trusted on securing our border, what can they be trusted on? 
We discuss the value of legal immigration and the chaos of illegal immigration. Democrats see chaos on the border as an opportunity. 

We Have An Incompetent Commander In Chief — Interview with Rep. Walorski

Congresswoman Jackie Walorski from Indiana’s 2nd District joins us to discuss inflation in RV Country and where the Biden Administration currently is on actions towards Russia’s military aggression. Rep Walorski’s concern is that we have an incompetent, unpredictable President that will only act once Putin does, and even then we don’t know what to expect.

Inflation is hitting Midwest Main Street hard. Is America prepared for the growing inflation that will continue to come?

A Spotify Don’t Need Neil Young Around, Anyhow! – The Morning Rumble with Tony Katz

Musician Neil Young gave Spotify an ultimatum: You can have my music, or you can carry Joe Rogan’s podcast, but you can’t have both. Why? Because Neil Young is among many accusing Rogan of pushing Covid misinformation.

The result: Spotify no longer carries Neil Young music.

Also, the GDP numbers look great. But that first look ain’t the right look.

Supreme Court Justice Kamala Harris? — Tony Katz Today Podcast

On This Episode:

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will retire. Let the games begin! 

We play “What’s That Number” with Producer Ari. 42.7 Million. What IS that number? It is how many people watched the Bills/Chiefs playoff game. We tell you how Chiefs fans are showing their support for Buffalo.
Joe Biden called Fox News Peter Doocy a “son of a bitch” and everyone is getting the story wrong. No one more so than Jim Acosta.

Dr. Fauci is a liar. That’s it. That’s the story. His argument for vaccinating 3 year-olds is appalling.

Is Health Care a right? We have a discussion with an unidentified caller about the government’s role in our healths.
Will President Biden send troops to Eastern Europe? We speak with Representative Jackie Walorski about the latest on Ukraine.

The Big Story:

The list of Democrats retiring from public office grows longer by the day. Local elections and SCOTUS nominations will put the divisions between Democrats and Progressive on full display for America to see. 

Who will Biden put up for nomination to the Supreme Court? Merrick Garland? What about Kamala Harris? Biden puts Hillary in as VP, Biden resigns, and we could have a Clinton/Trump election in 2024.  

Supreme Court Justice Breyer To Retire; Let The Games Begin.

The list of Democrats retiring from public office grows every day. Today the news broke that Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will be retiring. Biden allegedly has promised to nominate a black woman to the court if given the opportunity. Who will Biden put up for nomination? Kamala Harris, perhaps? But what about Merrick Garland?
