Florida man banned from Disney World after ‘challenging’ mask rule, video shows

“I’m kind of challenging this mask thing right now,” Roy Fields said in a Facebook video he streamed live from Disney’s Hollywood Studios this week.

Fields runs a Lakeland-based ministry, called Run With Fire Ministries.

Face coverings are required at Disney’s theme parks, resorts and at Disney Springs.

Fields wore a mask to enter the park, he told 8 On Your Side, but removed it when it became hard to breathe. He said he has asthma.

Fields went viral earlier in the month when he posted a 9/11 conspiracy video on his Facebook page. The video has been shared more than half a million times.

In an unrelated incident, deputies were called to Epcot in August after a man hit a security guard during a dispute over the mask rules, according to reports.

Republican congressman Dana Rohrabacher offered Assange the deal in 2017, a year after the emails that damaged Hillary Clinton had been published.

Dana Rohrabacher has long been suspected of being on the Russian payroll to the point it was joked at in the GOP caucus openly.   

Lawyers representing the United States at Julian Assange’s extradition trial in Britain have accepted the claim that the WikiLeaks founder was offered a presidential pardon by a congressman on the condition that he would help cover up Russia’s involvement in hacking emails from the Democratic National Committee.

Jennifer Robinson, a lawyer, told the court that she had attended a meeting between Assange, then Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, and pro-Trump troll Charles Johnson at Assange’s hide-out, the Ecuadorian embassy in London, on August 15, 2017.

Robinson said the two Americans claimed to be emissaries from Washington and “wanted us to believe they were acting on behalf of the president.” The pair allegedly told Assange that they could help grant him a pardon in exchange for him revealing information about the source of the WikiLeaks information that proved it was not the Russians who hacked Democratic emails.

“They stated that President Trump was aware of and had approved of them coming to meet with Mr. Assange to discuss a proposal—and that they would have an audience with the president to discuss the matter on their return to Washington, D.C.,” Robinson said.

Rohrabacher, who was known as Putin’s favorite congressman, partially corroborated the claim back in February, saying at the time, “I spoke to Julian Assange and told him if he would provide evidence about who gave WikiLeaks the emails I would petition the president to give him a pardon… He knew I could get to the president.”

Rohrabacher said he followed up the meeting by calling then White House chief of staff John Kelly to discuss the pardon. However, the ex-congressman said he never spoke to Trump about it.

Regardless, Assange turned the offer down, his lawyers said.

How many members of the US government including the current president are under the control of Putin and Russia?  Why when this came to light in 2018 was it treated as a joke by Republican house leader Paul Ryan who told his members to make sure that was kept quiet.   We really need to look at how greed has compromised the US government and ask ourselves if we still are a government of the people, for the people?   Hugs

TX Cops Who Used Force Rewarded With Gift Cards

The Austin Statesman reports:

Among the deputies who received gift cards to places such as Logan’s Roadhouse were J.J. Johnson and Zach Camden, the officers involved in the March 2019 death of Javier Ambler II. Officers used their Tasers on the Black 40-year-old father four times as he gasped that he had a heart condition and could not breathe.

Former deputy Christopher Pisa said Cmdr. Steve Deaton rewarded deputies he considered “WilCo badass.” “They had the intention that we were all ‘WilCo badass’ and, if you went out there and did your job and you had to use force on somebody and he agreed with it, then you would get a gift card,” Pisa said in an audio recording.

More at the link above.   Do we really need more evidence that the police in the US are out of control.   They see themselves as occupiers in a foreign land rather than keepers of peace or an agency to protect and serve.   Think about why the police unions and the police themselves are fighting reform so much?  because they don’t want reform.  The do not want to stop being bullies, stop being thugs, stop abusing people.   They are fighting for the right to keep abusing the people who pay their salaries.  This is the actions of a police state.   These are not protectors of the people, but oppressors of the people.   Hugs

Virginia Sees Massive Lines On First Day Of Early Voting

Reuters reports:

In Fairfax County, election workers were scrambling to open an additional voting room at the county government center where a line of hundreds of voters, spaced six feet apart, stretched down the block.

Long lines were also evident in other northern Virginia locations, where Democrats outnumber Republicans. Equally long lines, though, were reported in Virginia Beach — where voters stood in the rain — and other parts of the state as well.

Hello all my wonderful Toy Box viewers and online friends.   Nearly two days of trying to make the blog look good and work, not wanting to have to learn CSS and finally giving in and teaching myself some of it I think I have the blog nearly useable again.   In a few minutes I will get to answering all the comments.   Best wishes, talk soon.   Hugs
