Disney Caves and Forces Cancellation of UFC Pay-Per-View After Complaint From Dianne Feinstein

The government wants the public to be as miserable as possible while on lock down.

UFC promoter Dana White had done his best to resist the mass hysteria surrounding the coronavirus pandemic and vowed to hold shows against the odds to entertain his millions of fans.

But that will not be happening, after Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) intervened and complained about a UFC pay-per-view event that was scheduled to take place in April 18.

“I’m concerned by reports that Ultimate Fighting Championship plans to hold a pay-per-view event in California, in defiance of the state’s shelter-in-place order. This event would involve dozens of individuals flying to California and driving to a casino for a purpose no one can honestly claim is essential,” she wrote in a press release on Thursday.

Even though she admitted that she had no jurisdiction over the decision because it was scheduled to take place at a casino on tribal land, Feinstein still called for the event to be called off.

“I understand this event is scheduled to take place on tribal land and therefore is not subject to state law. However, at best this event ties up medical resources and sends a message that shelter-in-place orders can be flouted. At worst, participants and support staff could carry the virus back to their home communities and increase its spread,” Feinstein wrote.

“I call on Ultimate Fighting Championship and the Tachi-Yokut Tribe to reconsider this event and delay it until a later date. We have to be responsible and mindful of all local, state and federal public health guidelines. Going ahead with this event is not the right move,” she added.

Feinstein’s agitation to get the event cancelled was ultimately successful. White announced on Thursday that Disney put their foot down and essentially ordered him to cancel the event.

“Today, we got a call from the highest level you can go at Disney, and the highest level at ESPN … and the powers that be there asked me to stand down and not do this event on Saturday,” White told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto on Thursday.

Disney owns ESPN, which airs all UFC events on their television network or their digital streaming service. They caved under the pressure and succumbed to the panic.

“ESPN has been in constant contact with the UFC regarding UFC 249. Nobody wants to see sports return more than we do, but we didn’t feel this was the right time for a variety of reasons. ESPN expressed its concerns to the UFC and they understood,” ESPN said in their official statement about why they folded.

White gave credit to Tachi Palace Casino Resort in California for being willing to step up in a pinch and host the pay-per-view.

“It’s been a battle since day one,” White said of the card. “We’ve been fighting nonstop all day and all night, since this pandemic started, to put on this event on April 18.

“… Tachi Palace in California, the Indian reservation, has had our back this whole time, has stood their ground, and was willing to do this fight. And let me tell you this: When the world gets back to normal, California, that [fight] will be at Tachi Palace.”

White had said previously that he planned to host fights on a private island. Although that idea is currently postponed, he still hopes to make it a reality in the very near future.

“I can go next week,” White said. “So whenever my partner gives me the thumbs-up that they’re ready to go, I’m ready to go.”

White may be ready to hold fights, but government officials who want the public to be as miserable as possible during the lock down will not make it easy for him to do so.

Missouri AG: Soros-Funded Prosecutor Freed Every Rioter and Looter Jailed in St. Louis

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt made the discovery.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt made the announcement that every rioter and looter arrested by authorities in St. Louis has been let back onto the streets.

He made the announcement in a Twitter post accompanied by a video of the chaotic violent scene in St. Louis:

Schmitt says that his office will do everything in their power to make sure that these thugs responsible for this destruction are brought to justice

“We’re going to be very active and I’m going to do everything I can in my power as attorney general to prosecute these people,” Schmitt said. “Again, this is unacceptable.”

The reason this is happening is because St. Louis circuit attorney Kimberly Gardner is an operative of George Soros, the far-left billionaire who is also bankrolling ANTIFA terrorists across the country.

Soros filled Gardner’s coffers through a Super PAC that funded her advertisements while she was initially running for the office in 2016. She was bankrolled by the Safety & Justice Committee, a Soros front that gave her many donations throughout her campaign. She received a total of at least $190,750 from Soros to fuel her political ambitions, and she is now letting the criminals run wild to satisfy her paymaster.

Gardner’s status as a Soros puppet enraged her opponents as well as the police union in St. Louis. One of her opponents noted that Gardner would not be serving the people of St. Louis because of the cash her campaign received, which, of course, comes with strings attached.

“We’ve got to solve our problems on a local level,” said Mary Pat Carl, an assistant circuit attorney who was ultimately defeated by Gardner in the race. “We don’t need an outside national committee who doesn’t know us to come in and buy our election.”

“It’s pretty insulting,” said Joe Steiger, president of the police union, who noted that Soros operatives fueled race riots following the death of Michael Brown at the hands of police officers in Ferguson. “It’s more important for people to realize that calling for ‘black lives matter’ and ‘blue lives matter’ is not an opposite proposition.”

Gardner refused to apologize for taking the Soros’ funds, making it clear that she revels in being an operative for the anti-American oligarch.

She claimed that the Super PAC “reached out and heard my platform and liked what I was saying about building trust.”

“They said they’d like to support me and get my message out,” she added.

Because of this Soros pawn, the violent thugs of St. Louis are being empowered to destroy their city. This is the future of America under the regime of diversity and multiculturalism.
