Flordia Governor Ron DeSantis kicked off the annual CPAC Convention Friday morning in Orlando. CPAC is meeting this year in Florida rather than the military zone in Washington DC due to the open business environment in the state.

Governor DeSantis told the crowd,

“Now, Florida’s leading on the issues that matter to conservatives, we don’t spout hollow rhetoric, we take decisive action. And what’s true in Florida it’s true for conservatives across the nation. We cannot. We will not go back to the days of the failed Republican establishment of yesteryear.”

Super Bowl LV [Satanic] Half Time Show

If it’s true that, “A picture says a thousand words,” this year’s Super Bowl Half Time show was rife with occult symbols and messaging, beginning with the first moments featuring the fallen angel and his followers, followed by a flurry of red and black costuming, masked, zombie-like dancers, and so on. But perhaps we’re reading too much into this 14 plus minutes of otherwise ‘wholesome family entertainment.’

Florida state representative Randy Fine wants to repeal a tuition subsidy for #illegal #immigrants. The representative is proposing a bill he says will cut a $45 million annual subsidy while protecting the rights of the citizens in his state who “subsidize the state universities to the tune of billions of dollars, in part because we’re extending subsidies to foreigners.”

TALLAHASSEE, FL – A former U.S. Army soldier angered over the invasion of the U.S. Capitol has been arrested for plotting an attack against protesters at the Florida State Capitol in revenge.

On Friday, the FBI arrested 33-year-old Daniel Alan Baker on federal charges for allegedly issuing an online call to arms to recruit other “hardcore leftists” to “violently confront” protesters Sunday at Florida’s Capitol in Tallahassee.

Baker allegedly created a Facebook event titled “Defend Tallahassee,” which called for people to take up arms and join him in Tallahassee to attack protesters.

U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida Lawrence Keefe issued a statement:

“(Baker) threatened to kidnap and injure others, and he recently issued a call to arms for like-minded individuals to violently confront protesters who are expected to gather at the Florida Capitol.

“Extremists intent on violence from either end of the political and social spectrum must be stopped, and they will be stopped.”

Florida Rep Wants State to Divest From BigTech

Florida Politics

January 12, 2021

Republican Rep. Randy Fine is calling on the state to look into its investments with major tech companies and withdraw that money after President Donald Trump was kicked off several social media platforms following last week’s Capitol attack.

Representative Randy Fine, R-Palm Bay talks during the Health Quality subcommittee meetings in the House Office building at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee, Florida.

Facebook, Twitter and other companies cited Trump’s month-long crusade to stir up his supporters with false claims the presidential election was stolen. That culminated in Wednesday’s Washington rally — which Trump promoted beforehand as “wild” and turned into an insurrection.

While he stated protests should be peaceful, Trump whipped up the crowd during a speech where he directed supporters to protest at the Capitol. Once there, several clashed with police and stormed the building, resulting in several deaths.

In response, multiple technology companies banned Trump citing “the risk of further incitement of violence.” In a letter to Gov. Ron DeSantis, Fine argues Trump and his supporters are being unfairly targeted.

The letter specifically asks the Governor to “order the immediate divestment of any Florida-held equity and debt” in Alphabet (Google’s parent company), Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Twitter.

Boom: Florida forcing labs to report number of PCR test cycles—game changer

If the governor of Florida handles this breakthrough correctly, it could be the beginning of the end for one widespread piece of COVID test fakery…

And the beginning of the end of “rising case numbers”

Jon Rappoport
December 8, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

As I’ve reported, COVID testing labs never tell doctors or patients how the PCR test is run. [1]

This means the number of cycles is a secret.

A cycle is a step up in amplification of the tissue sample taken from the patient.

As even Tony Fauci has asserted, tests run at 35 cycles or above are useless. [1] [2] They’re also misleading. The results tend to be positive, meaning the patient is “infected with the virus.” But this is false.

However, as I’ve also reported, the CDC and the FDA recommend that the test should be run at up to 40 cycles. [1] [3] This is a direct hustle. It ensures false positives and higher COVID case numbers—used as justification for lockdowns.

Now, the state of Florida is doing something unheard of. It’s demanding that labs report the “cycle threshold” for every test they run.

Here is the relevant wording in a release from the Florida governor, Ron DeSantis, and the state Department of Health, dated December 3, 2020 [4]:

“Cycle threshold (CT) values and their reference ranges, as applicable, must be reported by laboratories to FDOH via electronic laboratory reporting or by fax immediately.”

Self-Exiled Florida COp Claims to Have Extensive Data Linking Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein to Prince Andrew

MI6 Concerned Over Potential Exposure

Explosive Files Linked to “Dead Man’s Switch”

Editor’s Note: In 2018 MHB addressed the unusual story of Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Deputy and emigre-to-Russia Mark Dougan. Mr. Dougan now reveals via his blog that during his tenure in South Florida law enforcement he came in to the possession of files he claims document the relationship between Jeffrey Epstein and Prince Andrew. As a result of having such information he has been routinely harassed by the FBI, which despite his move to Russia “has tried to arrest me twice since I’ve been in Moscow by pushing Interpol via a sealed indictment,” Dougan asserts.

“Both times they failed. Last year, the FBI sent 10 agents and Federal Marshals to a U.S. company that I do contract work for, unsuccessfully trying to intimidate them. I will not be divulging any of the information I may know of or possess, because the secrecy of the data I have access ensures the safety of me and my loved ones. “

If Dougan’s experiences and testimony are true, what is especially noteworthy about the overall story is the extent to which law enforcement and intelligence agencies will go to protect elite figures implicated in deep criminal networks and behavior, including protecting known .

John Mark Dougan backgrounder from 2018

The Daily Mail reports:

The former cop who MI6 fears has leaked damning secrets about Prince Andrew’s friendship with Jeffrey Epstein to the Russians has broken his silence to say he has hours of footage taken from the billionaire paedophile’s Florida mansion.

John Mark Dougan, a former US deputy police chief, had access to the investigation into the billionaire paedophile before he fled the FBI and is now living in Moscow. 

And asked by MailOnline about what information he has, Dougan said: ‘Do I have dirt on Prince Andrew? I have lots of things.

‘But I’m not a Kremlin agent and I did not share any materials with the Russian Government. I don’t intend to blackmail anyone with my information. It’s against my principles.’

In a statement, Dougan said the Epstein files are encrypted. The codes to open them are held by friends all over the world ‘as an insurance policy’.

A system has been put in place to open the files only if he dies or goes missing for a significant period.

‘The Epstein files will stay secure and unreadable to everyone, he said. ‘I do not have a physical copy in my immediate possession, because of security reasons.

September 21, 2019 London Times story under the headline, “MI6 fears Russia can link Prince Andrew to Jeffrey Epstein abuse,” carries this statement: 

MI6 is understood to be concerned about the activities of a former Florida police officer who had access to the investigation into the billionaire pedophile and then moved to Russia.

My name is John Dougan, and I am a former U.S. Marine and Palm Beach County Florida Deputy Sheriff, now living in Moscow. I was granted political asylum here in 2016. I fled to Russia after American intelligence agencies raided my home because I had exposed the rampant corruption and racism within the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. Part of my story was broadcast in a 2018 special Russian TV documentary, “Breaking Bad Wolf: One Crazy Journey from Palm Beach Cop to Russian Exile,” broadcast worldwide in several languages.

Because of the intense media interest and oftentimes inaccurate Internet speculation, I am giving further information to help put some of what I know in perspective.

John Dougan serving in Palm Beach County Honor Guard in 2007

Although we worked in different law enforcement agencies, former Town of Palm Beach Police Department Detective Joe Recarey, who was the lead detective on the solicitation-of-minors case against billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, was a friend. I was shocked, as were family and friends, to learn of his unexpected death at age 50 just over a year ago. 

Joe Recarey was very aware of my efforts to uncover the breaches of public trust by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office via my award-winning investigative website. In late 2009 or early 2010, Joe asked me to scan all the documents as well as copy hundreds of DVD disks he had on the Jeffrey Epstein case to keep them safe. He had lost faith in Barry Krischer, the Palm Beach County state’s attorney at the time of the investigation. I would meet with him occasionally to get more documents to store, the last time being in 2015. 

I have never looked at what was given to me by Joe Recarey, other than the file names, types, and sizes. The FBI seized my computers in 2016 which had everything Recarey gave me. The FBI and other intelligence agencies may be surprised to have discovered that I kept an off-site backup that was sent to me in 2017, after I was safely established in Russia.

According to news reports, U.S. intelligence agencies apparently analyzed the files and communicated with British authorities. If Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, commonly known as MI6, has concerns about any ties between Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein, they got it from their Washington counterparts, not me.

15-Year-Old Charged With Felony for Internet post On mass shooting

5th Florida Precrime ‘Threat Arrest’ This Month

“He’s a child … He didn’t cause, or act, or do anything though.”

Daniel Figueroa IV
TampaBayTimes

A Seabreeze High School student Friday became the fifth Floridian charged with threatening to commit a mass shooting after deadly shootings in El Paso and Dayton earlier this month.

According to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, 15-year-old Adam Guzzetti was charged with a felony after authorities learned he threatened to shoot and kill people at his school, Seabreeze High School in Daytona Beach.

Using the username FalconWarrior920 on the gaming platform Discord, deputies said Guzzetti on Thursday used a fake name and stated “I Dalton Barnhart vow to bring my fathers (sic) m15 to school and kill 7 people at minimum.”

Another user alerted the FBI to the threat, which was then passed on to the sheriff’s office. Members of the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force were able to track the FalconWarrior920 IP address to an address in Holly Hills, where Guzzetti lives with his mother, Amethy Organ, according to an arrest report.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Suspends Broward Sheriff Scott Israel

Huffington Post/Associated Press
(January 11, 2018)

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — New Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel on Friday over his handling of February’s massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The Republican governor flew to Fort Lauderdale three days after taking office to remove the Democratic sheriff, appointing a former police sergeant to serve as acting sheriff. Gregory Tony, 40, worked for Coral Springs police for 12 years before leaving in 2016 to start a company specializing in active-shooter training. He is the first African-American to serve as Broward’s sheriff.

DeSantis’ office issued a statement saying, “Sheriff Israel has repeatedly failed and has demonstrated a pattern of poor leadership. He failed to protect Floridians and visitors during the tragic Fort Lauderdale International Airport shooting in 2017. He failed in his duties to keep our families and children safe during the devastating shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, 2018. These incidents demonstrate Sheriff’s Israel’s repeated incompetence and neglect of duty.”

The statement added, “The families of the victims deserve accountability.”

Minutes after DeSantis’ announcement, Israel said he would fight the suspension.

“There was no wrongdoing on my part. I served the county honorably,” he said.

Under Florida law, the governor can suspend elected officials for criminal activity, misfeasance, incompetence or neglect of duty. Israel intends to challenge the suspension to the state Senate, which will conduct a trial and then remove or reinstate him. Israel’s lawyer, Stuart Kaplan, said this week the sheriff did nothing warranting removal and his future should be left to Broward voters in the 2020 election. Israel had been sheriff six years.

Broward County Aggressively Enforces New ‘Red Flag’ Gun Law

Confiscated guns (from a re-enactment)
Confiscated guns (from a re-enactment)

Broward County is leading the state in enforcement of the new gun restrictions Gov. Rick Scott signed into law in March.

The Red Flag gun law, passed March 5, was written to allow local law enforcement to confiscate weapons from those displaying emotional problems, or posing a direct danger to others. This made Florida one of the select-few states to have such a law.

In the emotional weeks following the loss of 17 lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, many Floridians — in fact, many Americans — called for a strengthening of Florida’s gun laws.

A number of new gun restrictions were suggested and many passed, despite no connection to the mass shooting Feb. 14. A ban on bump stocks, and an extension of the waiting period to buy a gun were also passed, even though those components had no relevance in the Parkland shooting. (Other suggested ideas, such as banning high-capacity magazines, and banning sales to those on the terrorist watch list, also bore no connection to events in Parkland.)

With the Red Flag law now in effect, the Sun-Sentinel looked into how counties across the state were enacting the new legislation. The newspaper found that, while many had begun to use this new tool, Broward county far exceeded all others in the enforcement and seizing of firearms under this law. To date, Broward authorities have taken a confiscation action 34 times. The Orlando area was a distant second, with a total of just five cases.
