The relationship between Florida & Disney started
in 1965 when Walt began buying up worthless swampland in what was then the middle of nowhere

Disney wanted land, power, and control and they wanted it cheap!

Wasn't just cuz Walt wanted to build another Theme-Park,

“Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow”
or EPCOT

Disney wanted to build a self-sustaining 'imagineered' city where folks would live, work & play under the auspices of Disney
milwaukeeindependent.com/syndicated/cit… #disney #epcot
So under that premise, the Florida Legislature let Disney have independent autonomy under the

Reedy Creek Improvement Zone

Where Disney would be its own county gov, run its own police, fire, sanitation, etc without any of that messy local political oversight #disney #florida

A large focus of the right-wing conversation is on Senate Bill 4-C & taking away the Reedy Creek Improvement District

is this a political punishment, is this against freedom of speech & 1rst amendment
legit concerns & I share some of them,

they miss the point of this move by @GovRonDeSantis & Florida GOP,

Ending #ReedyCreek is about putting Disney in its place & taking back control of Florida politics from the Mouse

1/ THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4651: Ron DeSantis' Forehead

2/ Sincerity is often thought of as a measure of truth in the moment. It's used as a synonym for honesty.
3/ It's important to make a distinction between sincerity in the moment, and sincerity as an overall characteristic of a person's personality.

So remain neutral on the topic of slavery. Got it.
Makes perfect sense considering it's DeSantis and the Florida GOP. Image

¿Qué está pasa en la #Florida en este momento? Nos estamos desmoronando. Si fuera cualquier otro país,estarían enviando ayuda humanitaria en este momento.Pero los Estados Unidos son demasiados tercos para decir que su estado regimen está muriendo ante sus ojos. #ElNorteSinMáscara
Aquí estoy traduciendo al Español lo que está sucediendo en la #Florida. Me tomé el tiempo para hacer esto porque nadie más está informando sobre esto en nuestros medios. Y los medios extranjeros están ignorando lo grave que es la pandemia y la escasez de recursos en los
#EstadosUnidosDeAmérica. Es un tema tabú porque se supone que los Estados Unidos sea un paraíso que todos aman. La realidad para nosotros es muy diferente. Contrario lo que dicen los Republicanos Y Cubanos Exiliados que viven en un estado de delirio inducido por las drogas,

JT Burnette told FBI agents he helped Florida lawmaker box out competition in #medicalmarijuana law

While on the stand in his own defense, Burnette tells prosecutors recorded conversations were just bravado /1
A conversation between Tallahassee businessman John "J.T." Burnette and undercover FBI agents recorded five years ago seems to confirm what some Florida politicos and marijuana lobbyists have been saying for years. /2
That former state Rep. #HalseyBeshears, R-Monticello, stacked the deck in favor of an application his brother and the spouse of his childhood friend, Burnette, had submitted to the state for one of five licenses to grow and sell medical marijuana. /3

1.“What if I could get you on a private trip to Bahamas next week w/congressman #MattGaetz & #HalseyBeshears,” Pirozzolo wrote in a msg reviewed by @Jason_Garcia

“Obviously this is a very very private deal,” Pirozzolo wrote to the investor. “No pictures. Etc. Very private.”
2.That September 2018 getaway is now reportedly part of a federal investigation into allegations of sex trafficking and public corruption that has its sights on Gaetz, Beshears and Pirozzolo.
3.According to a report by CNN, investigators with the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section are examining the trip as they hunt for potential “pay-to-play” arrangements involving the trading of gifts for influence over medical marijuana policy. cnn.com/2021/04/23/pol…

Last night we had a news report with all of these #Florida leaders to talk about how to “help #Cuba”. Which is hilarious given that most of these exiles if not all of them are ex war criminals or ex members of Cuba’s ruling elite.& these are the great human rights defenders
But the star of the show was none other than #Florida’s Fascist Governor, #RonDeSantis who is not a Cuban,who is actually a former #GuantanamoBay #Torturer who only got elected here because #Trump backed him.
Now to give you an idea of how Exile Politicians are like, take a look at this

#RonDeSantis is a hemorrhoidal hypocrite of epic proportion:
Despite raging against censorship and “cancel culture,” he now wants to infringe on students’ 1st Amendment rights to express their political opinions.
He wants to make it illegal to ask whether you’re vaccinated, but
wants to force you to tell the government who you voted for.
He claimed he’s fighting “indoctrination,” but he is trying to punish students for voicing their political beliefs.

He calls Florida an "Oasis of Freedom," but bans press who disagree with or challenge him.
The mission in Florida is more important than ever. Ron DeSantis wants to suppress voters and people who disagree with him. Will you stand with students’ free speech? mobilize.us/votersoftomorr…

This is a very interesting response.

Asked to elaborate on the Ghost Candidate race.

He repeats nearly every other question back verbatim, except this one. Instead he says "Are you talking about the Brodeur/Sigman race. Right now that's attorney client privilege so I can't".

2/On the eve of the uprising, the Rule of Law Defense Fund sent out robocalls urging supporters of Trump to join what was, by this point, an escalating movement to overturn the election by force.

3/As scrutiny of those messages intensified following the insurrection, Moody’s office scrubbed references to the Rule of Law Defense Fund from her online biography. Her website still promoted the board appointment on Friday, according to @TB_Times. By Mon morning, it was gone.
