Roger Stone was selling pardons. 250K a pop.

In a text message to The Daily Beast, Stone said that Greenberg had tried to hire him to assist with a pardon. He did confirm he had Greenberg prepare “a document explaining his prosecution.”…
Private messages between Greenberg and Stone were given to the DB. I guess Roger has a beef with Gaetz, or does Trump?

The letter, which The Daily Beast recently obtained, was written after Greenberg asked Roger Stone to help him secure a pardon from then-President Donald Trump.
“I hope you are prepared to wire me $250,000 because I am feeling confident,” Stone wrote to Greenberg on Jan. 13.

In the private text messages, Greenberg described his activities with Gaetz, repeatedly referring to the congressman by his initials, “MG,” or as “Matt.”

"There has been no accountability for the Trump administration's handling of COVID."
"Everyone is waiting for the other shoe to drop while trying to ignore the boot that's stomping on our neck, which is the threat of autocracy, barely defeated in January and that has barely gone underground." - @sarahkendzior
"There has been no accountability for the Trump administration's handling of COVID, which included profiteering off death, purposefully letting the virus spread, withholding PPE... and lying constantly about how Americans could protect themselves." - @sarahkendzior

Complicated, long thread of research by many connecting the Florida #GaetzGate to the #MedicalCannabis giants in & around this story. It's worth a look.

Can't wait to hear what he thought the money was for
When Greenberg then made his Venmo payments to these three young women, he described the money as being for “Tuition,” “School,” and “School.”
This week, during the reporting of this story, Gaetz’s once-public list of Venmo transactions disappeared.

When people who seek control
and who monetize fear

are faced with evidence their narrative of control is false

rather than embrace reality
(or develop courage)
they double down

At times of high stress you see bizarre overpolicing & bullying increase over petty non-issues.
There is a gender difference in bullying tactics.
Men: physical
Women: social (exclusion)

Later looks/sounds like
“Don’t talk to her”
“No one likes you”

(Yes, really adults resort to grade school tactics)

Faculty/teachers need to stay aware:…

This whole Matt Gaetz outing of his so-called secret 'son' is so on brand for the repulsive #FloridaMan, trying to convince people that he is not a repugnant racist who took a Holocaust denier as his plus 1 to the #SOTU, and that, look here, I have a brown helper--er, son, see?!
But, since Matty has now thrown his big reveal party for the entire American public, there are a few questions to be answered beyond those involving pool cleaning. That's just none of our biz. What we do want to know is, who is Maisbel Mendez, why did the Gaetz family buy her a
Beemer, why does she have the same Fort Walton Beach, FL address as Matty (and a mug shot too), and why was she involved in a 2016 court case against Nelson SENIOR in which she petitioned for 'concurrent custody by extended family"? Also, who is Marbelina Matos, who lives
