RESOLVED: I am not sure why this worked but I did a reboot of my entire network, computer, and everything as a last ditch effort. Must have had some setting that somehow blacklisted my Mac from making any connection to cdn servers.
Thanks everyone for the assistance; without the guidance I never would tried what I did to get it working.
I didn't have enough rep to post the answer to my own question.
QUESTION: I tried searching for this issue but was only met with questions of people who are actually experiencing a 'stack overflow' error.
Recently as I have been doing my dev work on my Mac, I had noticed that the Stack Overflow website stopped working for me. I am still able to go to all other websites but when I navigate to Stack Overflow it will either hang and never load or will display an unstyled version of the content and it is super slow.
To make sure that that the problem was me, I checked the website on both my phone and my tablet and they appear to be functioning fine. I have also tried clearing the cache and using different browsers but have not yet had any luck.
Stack Overflow is amazing and I would love to continue to be able to use it again on the computer that I have been doing all my dev work. Any suggestions on what to try would be greatly appreciated.
This is what I am seeing:
Edit: After checking the chrome developer tools, I was confronted with the following errors:

Any idea what I could do to get access to these resources?
