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!… #disney #florida #reedycreek #politics #news
Wasn't just cuz Walt wanted to build another Theme-Park,

“Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow”

Disney wanted to build a self-sustaining 'imagineered' city where folks would live, work & play under the auspices of Disney… #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

La guerre froide #Floride vs. #Disney vire à l'affrontement total avec la possible dissolution du #ReedyCreekImprovementDistrict. Mais qu'est-ce que le #RCID ? Quels sont les enjeux de ce bras de fer ? Je vous ai préparé un petit #thread... 1/15
#Disneyland (Californie) a été bâti au milieu des orangers. Mais le développement anarchique d'Anaheim et ses laideurs ont bien vite rattrapé puis cerné le parc. #Walt était bien décidé à empêcher ça pour son #ProjectFlorida 2/15 ImageImage
Le #ProjectFlorida - futur #WaltDisneyWorld - est annoncé en 1965, un an avant la mort de #Walt : à terme, ce serait une "vraie" ville avec ses parcs à thèmes et aquatiques, ses entreprises, commerces et maisons etc. La maîtrise du foncier se révèle donc primordiale. 3/15 ImageImageImageImage

Conservative Media Cheering DeSantis Crackdown on Disney Are Ignoring What a Catastrophe It Would Be for Florida via @mediaite #sayfie #ReedyCreek #flapol
Let's dig into this. One of the main points = Reedy Creek Improvement District (RCID) is SUPER complicated & has been around for over 50 years. It's a >$100 million annual operating budget to provide services over a 25K+ parcel that stretches across 2 counties. /2
Orange County includes Orlando and several other well-developed suburbs and cities. Osceola remains far more rural outside of the tourist corridor. Both counties are currently facing significant challenges related to skyrocketing housing prices, transportation needs, etc. /3

1M US dead didn’t have to happen

The US having a higher death-rate-per-capita than any other wealthy nation didn’t have to happen

Trump was the worst possible President to lead America through a pandemic

By March 2020, he had already botched the nation’s #Covid19 response...🧵
February 2020 was the month in which Covid-19 “seeded” in NY, leading to a devastating first wave.

Trump spent the month golfing, holding MAGA rallies, visiting his own resorts, attending GOP fundraisers, and taking an election-year ego-stroking trip to India. (2/)
Trump lied us into a pandemic.

His failure to take Covid seriously, his failure to test, his failure to invoke the Defense Production Act, and his frequent promotion of “fairy tale” cures guaranteed that the pandemic would hit America harder than any other wealthy nation. (3/)

#DeSantis was lobbies hard NOT to sign this into law again. Many Frontline docs went to him explaining that this blanket liability was causing deaths to our parents. He signed it AGAIN anyway. .@GovRonDeSantis is no better than Cuomo! A snake oil salesman! SCUM.
And his bootlicker Jeremy too! When I confronted him while Mom was still alive in the hosp about the MAB issue we were also lied to about the supply he was insuring for us, Jeremy was nasty to me and then blocked me. I am a Floridian. My Mom needed help! AND I GOT BLOCKED!
If you cannot properly discuss the things your elected officials are doing wrong, ESPECIALLY when they are causing deaths of the ELDERLY , your flesh & blood, your Mom&Dad, to supposedly “good” Governors & their staff, then you have been lies to!

News you can use.

Try not to laugh... 👀
Interesting take. Fact: the aliens landed in #Brevard and told Trump that being stupid is actually smart...and he believed them. 👽

Lin Wood break down with recieipts....
My opinion on writing this just a week ago was dont do anything to cause division. Pleas forgive me, read in its entirety before judging. 1

Linwood was loud, erratic, truth speaker, semi good story teller, bold, reputable, honest, faithful, Jesus follower, rubble-Rouser, exposing the Cabal without using an anonymous persona. Doing what we all want to do and thats scream from the mountaintops all that is fookery....2
I have one side, the Truth. I started looking into Wood when a public spat surviced with Gen Flynn and I went all in. When I started, here is where my head was at. Gen Flynn what? Immediately said ok if he is a shill then when did it start?.....3

¿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,

I’m sorry I haven’t been around for a while. In #Florida we are running out of everything. And some are saying the supply trucks are going to stop coming here. I hope that’s a lie, but honestly what I am seeing here I have never seen before. Everyone is running to get as much of
everything to hunker down before the Virus really gets bad over here. The death tolls and spread of infection are rising and spreading faster and wider than what’s being reported on the media. Some of my relatives are healthcare workers including working at home health agencies
for the protection of the Elderly. And there are entire homes that are infected and getting shut down again. No matter what this idiot #DeSantis says, things are getting worse. #RebekaJones was right about everything. And honestly, we’re scared. Just yesterday this lady was

1/ What’s Missing From Popular Discussions of Today’s Christian Nationalism?…

This MUST READ article is from @kathsstewart,
author of "The Power Worshippers: Inside the
Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism".
2/ “Seven Mountains Dominionism” is a heartbeat away from everything that happens in the Republican Party. This year, in fact, the Road to Majority featured a breakout session titled “The Seven Mountains of Influence.”
3/ “You got to put on the full armor of God,” said Florida Governor Ron #DeSantis, alluding to a passage from Ephesians that’s often used to invoke a “spiritual war” against the devil. “You got to take a stand, take a stand against the Left’s schemes.”

Republicans Covid bioweapon. Then it turned against them

Republicans apparently imagined that the pandemic would strike Democratic states and cities first. In 2020 Black, Latinx and indigenous were disproportionately affected

To put it clearly, Republicans enabled a campaign of mass death and disablement, thinking it would be primarily mean death and illness for those they regarded as opponents.

The worst-hit areas in the country are now Republican-led states and regions.

#Florida under raging science denier #DeSantis, with about 7.5% of the population, accounted for 20% of all new Covid cases.

The governors of Florida and Texas have banned mask mandates, making attempts to protect public health, including that of children, acts of defiance…

Republican governors are flailing, trying to deflect blame as their states see #Covid19 cases and hospitalisations skyrocket to new records.

Florida’s governor, eyeing a presidential run, is inexplicably blaming the surge in his state on immigrants.
Governor DeSantis has demonised masks and social distancing, scoffed at vaccination, completely opened his state and banned private companies from imposing vaccine mandates on employees.

Florida now has the highest hospitalisation rate of any time since the pandemic began.
The Republicans eyeing 2024 presidential runs are trying to outdo each other with sounding tough against vaccination mandates, masks & social distancing.

As DeSantis says, Democrats at federal & city level are fighting him, trying to save people’s’ lives.…

Can you guys help provide legitimate sources regarding #COVID19 and #CovidVaccine ?
I'm not an #antivax however, I find this all insane.

LEGIT info on the #virus (origin?), #vaccines (does it stop the spread?), and the #BigPharma behind them, is #Agenda2030 related, etc.

GOP Lawmakers Intensify Effort to Ban Critical Race Theory in Schools via @pewtrusts The Center for Renewing America created model #CriticalRaceTheory legislation for lawmakers to introduce

There is no evidence that #CriticalRaceTheory, as defined by its originators, has been taught in any public school. Nor has a school board in any state cited critical race theory as an element of its curriculum.

Scène hallucinante de la nuit US: #Trump traite le chef de la minorité républicaine #McConnell de "fils de p.... crétin" devant 1 parterre de donateurs, élus et cadres républicains lors d'1 retraite de printemps en Floride.
Sous leurs applaudissements
2) L'emprise de #Trump sur le parti républicain est désormais totale, puisque la retraite se tenait à Palm Springs mais les élus et donateurs sont allés à Canossa- court chemin il est vrai- ou plutôt à Mar a Lago pour écouter l'ex-président chez…
3) Ce qui est à retenir sur le fond est que les élus, cadres du parti et gros donateurs convergent avec #Trump sur un double socle: d'1 part, "l'élection volée" par la fraude que l'ex-président n'a cessé de marteler et qu'il reprochait à #McConnell d'avoir "laissé faire"...

that @GeoRebekah is making REAL data lemonade out of jackass #desantis lemons - you know the time he threw and said "hey catch" and pelted her with a rock in the eye?

Ihate to make light of horrying yet totally foreseeable and avoidable disease and death, it's an..
Unimaginable and unforgivable betrayal of the citizens of Florida.

See kids - this is why we use science - not spin for healthcare, community wide disease, and public wellbeing.

It's hard to look at this and see any good Covid news. There is none. What is worth teaching
Your kids when faced with moral or ethical issues, you only have one choice. The right one.

tell them, despite challenges, sometimes awesome things happen.

@GeoRebekah taking the worst situation, and showing what doing right looks like.

Governors across the nation have eased harsh restrictions related to the #CCPVirus or are planning to start soon.

Here’s the current #Lockdown situation with each state and #WashingtonDC. (Thread👇)…
Alabama | Reopening started April 30 as @GovernorKayIvey loosened her #StayAtHome.

“As of this week, we no longer believe our hospitals will see an overwhelming amount of ICU patients who need ventilators, as we once believed, and that is sure good news.”
Alaska | @GovDunleavy allowed some sectors of the #Economy to begin reopening on April 24.

“Alaskans must be able to visit their doctors, pay rent, and buy food for their families.”

You can get as angry at me as you want for pointing out the abject failures of #fdoh — be my guest but nothing I said or will say isn’t verifiable. The latest thing to think about. From the Nytimes: “Doctors and hospital administrators have been warning for weeks that they face
acute shortages of masks and lifesaving equipment such as ventilators. State and local officials in New York and elsewhere have been pleading for help from Washington and industry.” #fdoh and #desantis have failed us. Mobilize. Find a group of people that can make n95 equivalent
masks. They are diagrams online for how to build aerosol protection masks out of plexiglass that are effective when their heart masks for healthcare workers to treat patients. If you have the supplies - now is the time. Waiting only prolongs suffering
