Disney advantages MUST GO if it wants a say in Florida law

The Walt Disney Company just publicly opposed Governor Ron DeSantis’ new bill — which has become known as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill — arguing that it ‘never should have passed and should never have been signed into law.’ But Disney receives HUGE advantages in Florida....advantages of which some business leaders could only DREAM. So if Disney wants a say in Florida law, Glenn argues, it’s only fair the company first loses it’s ‘unfair advantages’ and plays on the same field as everyone else...

GLENN: Welcome to the Glenn Beck Program. Glad you're here. I want to fix something. In my last commercial, I said, it was AmericanFinancing.org. It is not. It's AmericanFinancing.net. AmericanFinancing.net. Okay. Let me go back to -- let me go back to Ron DeSantis. Coming out and saying, you know, I might look at some of these special perks. You really want to change -- well, first of all, let me say this. Can you imagine, if your family owned a huge swath of land. And because of that, you were just getting richer and richer and richer. And more and more powerful in the state. Do you think if your parents set it up, and then died, you inherited it. Do you think your kids, the third generation, do you think they're going to be in touch with the people? Do you think that they're going to care really, about anything? Or do you think they're going to be so arrogant? They've had no laws applied to them. So they're special in this state. Everybody else has to. But not us. Do you think they'll be monsters? Yeah.

STU: And the company has turned into that at some point.

GLENN: It's a monster.

STU: So when you say they're not -- they don't have any laws apply to them. You know, there's a murder that happens.

GLENN: Police --

STU: Regular police car.

GLENN: FBI comes in for that.

STU: Or it could be a state police, right?

GLENN: Yeah. State until the FBI arrives. That's a --

STU: Yeah. Some --

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: But like if you're breaking a major rule, outside authorities may come in. But if you're on the normal, like -- like, I'm looking at the list of this. Law enforcement handled by -- by Disney.

GLENN: Yeah. They have their own jails and everything. They have their own mayor.

STU: Imagine a company with no environmental protection rules.

GLENN: No, no, no. Imagine -- imagine a company that is on swampland. Okay? All that water, they're on that land. And they can move as much dirt anywhere they want, any way they want, they don't have to care about, oh, the pockmarks, you know, alligator. They don't have to worry about any -- any environmental restrictions.

STU: This is something that Exxon would dream for.

GLENN: Dream of. Okay? They don't have to worry about that. Imagine, you are a company that is doing rides. Rollercoasters, all these things. You don't to have worry about the building codes. Don't worry about them.

STU: So they get to judge the safety of their own words.

GLENN: They have their own building codes. Yeah. Because -- because they were responsible. They were a responsible, reasonable company.

STU: Right. No.

GLENN: And the reason why, is not because of the amusement park, okay? The reason why -- Florida gave it to them, because Florida politicians wanted the money and wanted Florida to become the number one destination. Which it is.

STU: This is actually one of those ideas that worked.

GLENN: Worked. Okay. The reason why Walt wanted it, however, and would not negotiate on it, is because he wanted to build Epcot. Which is not what you go to now.

STU: Not an amusement park.

GLENN: He was -- wanted one. Only because Roy made him. The magic kingdom was going to be the only thing for rides, okay? That would fund Epcot. Epcot, experimental prototype, city of tomorrow. He was redesigning everything about a city. I mean everything.

And so he wanted his -- he wanted to have the right, I need nuclear power to run this. You could build a nuclear power plant. I'm going to put all of the traffic, you know, four stories, below the city. All traffic. Okay.

And he had the right to do any of it.

STU: It's fascinating.

GLENN: Still has it.

STU: And it's interesting, because as a person who likes limited government, I like this experiment. And I think there should be more of this stuff going on.

GLENN: But they're the only ones who get it.

STU: That's the problem, right? It's just doled out to this one company. Which now, seems to want to get involved in state matters. Like the -- I hate to call it. The don't say gay bill, but that's what everyone knows it by at this point. Because this is sort of the tie. Because I don't personally like the idea. I know maybe this makes me a squish and a wuss. But I don't like the idea of just changing rules for unrelated revenge reasons. Like, you did something I don't like. You opposed this bill. Don't say gay, and I oppose it. And now we're going to come after you, and punish you. I don't like -- I don't like that. Because it has been nothing to do with their -- their -- their rights as a self-governing entity. If the self-governing entity is bad policy, overturn it for that reason. If it's good policy, not only keep it, but give it to others.

GLENN: So this was good policy for a long time, okay? But it's no longer good policy. It's now become bad policy. Because they're so arrogant. You want to stick your nose into -- can you imagine? Do you think Sea World got all those --

STU: No.

GLENN: Yeah. So can you imagine trying to compete against Disney. That can build a hotel, to their specifications, not a single EPA guy comes out to say, you can't put that building there. Nothing.

You want to talk about an unfair advantage? That would be it. That would be it. Imagine trying to compete. And it's -- it actually hurts the city of Orlando. Because you don't -- you have this so much land. If you're going to Orlando, and you're going to go to the park, you'll probably go there. If you can afford to stay there. Okay? But the reason -- the reason -- they're gouging your eyes out. Imagine how much it costs, just for the environmental impact, in Florida. They don't have to worry about it. Oh, my gosh.

STU: And, again, I think that seems to be the type of policy, we should pursue for lots of companies. If you buy your land, you should be able to do what you want within reason.

GLENN: Yeah. Like build your own nuclear power plant.

STU: That one might be a little questionable.

GLENN: That's at a time, though, when we believed in nuclear power. Some of us still do.

STU: Again, there's a lot to be said about this.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: But I think what Ron DeSantis is trying to do here. Is he's trying to say, you know, it's not revenge. They have these perks. And if they want to be involved in overturning laws, then they need to be a part of the state, like everybody else. Right?

GLENN: That's exactly right. Exactly right. Like, step up to the plate and say, hey, I'm a full citizen of this community. And then my voice will matter more, when it comes to statewide events.

GLENN: I believe they have their own educational system for kids. I think they have their own educational system for their employee's kids on their property. And they -- they do their own thing. Imagine that. Imagine being able to be -- imagine think able to say --

STU: It's incredible power.

GLENN: Yeah. Mercury Studios. I'm going to set up a school next door. Nobody would want to do that. Except for history. It would be great for history. Math would be, I don't know. Twelve.

STU: That's the highest number, 12.

GLENN: It's on this ruler here.

But imagine that. Imagine being able, in your own town, to not have to worry about going to anybody -- just, we're going to start our own school.

STU: And you really do see the advantage this. It's not just a nice thing for Disney to develop their property. It's a structural -- universal -- all these other artists that are sitting there, trying to do this, they don't have any of these perks.

GLENN: Yeah. Unfair advantage.

STU: And look, I would like to see, probably the other way. And give more of these rights to more companies and private landowners. But until you're going to do that, you know, do they have this right to be singled out like this, if they're going to come in and criticize the people of the state, who elected these representatives, to pass laws?

It's like, if you want all this free stuff, zip it. You know what, if you don't want the free stuff, fine. Complain all you want. And you can be on the same playing field as everyone else. If you want all this free stuff, if you want all these awesome perks, then zip it.

GLENN: The reason why -- one of the reasons why Walt was so adamant about it, not only because of Epcot, but because he had learned. He was over in California, and he could not do things in California. Imagine -- imagine if you had to build Disneyland in California today. You couldn't do it. Just the -- he built that. He was raising money, the summer of '54. Got the money, and I think September, announced it, September, Octoberish. And cut the ribbon in July of '55.

STU: Hmm.

GLENN: You couldn't even get the calls. They wouldn't have even called you back from the EPA.

STU: And he got it all done.

GLENN: And he got it all done. That's why this is such a disadvantage. You're right. Repeal them for everybody. Let's -- let's talk sanity here. But nobody wants to be sane.

STU: And I've seen everybody on Twitter and stuff. Saying, well, we should go after everything. We should go after their trademarks, for example.

GLENN: No, we should not.

STU: I don't think they should be treated more poorly, than any other company because they have an opinion -- a dumb opinion on a bill.

GLENN: Here's an idea: What Disney is experiencing is equity.

STU: Uh-huh. Uh-huh.

GLENN: I would like equality. Just because of their status, they shouldn't get more.

STU: Right.

GLENN: And just because I don't like them, they shouldn't get less. They should live under the same rule. This is a crazy idea.

Everyone should -- oh, man. We should write this down. Because I find this almost self-evident. Everyone should live under the same laws, that everyone else has to live under.

STU: Seems old and antiquated and dusty. Doesn't it?

GLENN: Yeah. Don't even write that down. What a waste that is.

How the WHO's 'pandemic treaty' could CONTROL governments

On May 22nd, the World Health Assembly — which is the governing body of The World Health Organization — will meet in Switzerland to discuss next steps for its ‘pandemic treaty [and its] quest to use public health to expand The WHO’s power over sovereign states,’ Daniel Horowitz reports for TheBlaze. He explains how certain amendments to be added to this treaty could ‘allow the director-general of the WHO to declare a public health emergency in a country and unilaterally coerce its citizens to take certain actions.’ The far-left and global elite continue to destroy our sovereignty, Glenn says, and this is just one more step toward their desired global government.

GLENN: I read some stuff this morning. I've been doing some research on what's happening with the WHO. And I read their stuff today, that will make your head explode. And is really evil and important.

But let me give you this today, from -- from Daniel Horowitz at TheBlaze. States must preemptively nullify any WHO international pandemic regulation.

I'm going to read it verbatim because it's just so well-written. And now is the time, that things are shifting. We're going to. There's going to be a New World Order out there. And we've got to lead it. And we have to unite the rest of the free world in doing it. That's Joe Biden. March 21st, 2022.

Any Republican that is running without mentioning your intent to fight the global pandemic treaty or regulations, might as well run as a Democrat. This is really super important, and it is beginning to happen next week. On May 22nd, the world health assembly, the governing body of the World Health Organization, is going to meet in Geneva Switzerland to discuss the next step in its pandemic treaty. And the quest to use public health to expand the WHO's power over sovereign states. Representatives from 193 nations, including the US, will be attending the only country, not invited is Taiwan.

Gee, I wonder why. So what is this treaty? On January 24th, 2022, the director general of the WHO explained the treaty was a priority, to urgently strength the WHO, as leading and the director authority on global health, at the center of the global health architecture. He laid out the guiding principle of this plot. We, quote, all want a world in which science triumphs over misinformation. Solidarity triumphs over division. And equity is a reality, not an aspiration. He said, we are one world, we have one health. We are one WHO.

Now, this has not been announced. Biden has not even spoken about it. They are deathly quiet about this. But they're going to be approving amendments. The proposed amendments are essentially going to allow the director general of the WHO to declare public health emergencies in any country. And unilaterally coerce its citizens to take certain actions. Here's one of the amendments, a critical section from article nine. The WHO shall consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the state party, whose territory the event is allegedly occurring. But this is the way it's going to read. Now, WHO may take into account, reports from sources of other than notifications or consultations -- consultations shall assess these reports, according to established principles. And then communicate information on the event, to the state party, in whose territory the event is allegedly occurring.

Now, they have scratched out, before taking any action based on reports, the WHO shall consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the state party. That's all gone. They're taking that out.

So WHO gets information, has reports, and they can act without verifying with the president or anybody else.

Why would you be erasing the requirement, for the WHO to consult with the government?

Number four. If the state party does not accept the offer of collaboration within 48 hours, WHO, it used to say, May. It now says, WHO shall -- when justified by the magnitude of public health risk, immediately share with other state parties, the information available, whilst encouraging the state party to accept the offer of collaboration, by the WHO. It used to say there, while taking into accounts the views of the state party concerned.

So they're erasing all of our sovereignty. This is going to be another thing. They're going to say, is a conspiracy theory. It is not. You can look it all up. It is the world health agenda. From the World Health Organization. They are meeting in Geneva, on May 22nd. So that's next week. They are intentionally quiet on this.

Because they know the power. Now, we also know what the WHO is. You remember, when everybody was saying, we have to get out of the WHO.

They're just a tool of China. Why would you say that?

Forget that I mentioned that Taiwan is the only country that is not invited to this in Geneva.

PAT: Yeah. That's completely -- completely irrelevant.

GLENN: Completely. Amen, brother.

PAT: I don't even know why you brought it up in the first place.

GLENN: Thank you. Thank you.

PAT: It's a good thing they weren't actually -- I wish we weren't invited to it.

GLENN: Well, I will tell you this. Another reason why Donald Trump. They fought so hard to keep him out: Because he wouldn't have --

PAT: He sure wouldn't have. That's exactly right.

GLENN: He wouldn't have empowered the WHO.

PAT: Well, he took us out of the WHO.

GLENN: That's exactly right. And this president is not only putting us back, they're taking away our sovereignty.

And so it's one more piece to the global governance of the left. Warning.

Right vs. Left: The Time for Compromise Is OVER | Jesse Kelly | Ep 146

The Left worked for decades to get control, and now they have it: “Every cultural pillar has been infected and taken over,” Jesse Kelly warns Glenn. So, it’s time to get out of the stands and onto the field. On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," the host of the nationally syndicated "Jesse Kelly Show" joins with a blunt message for the Right: The time for compromise is gone. This system that’s raising young people who hate America can’t be salvaged, and while taking back Congress in 2022 would be nice, LOCAL victories are what really matter. But this won’t be a quick fight. Thankfully, Jesse has some solutions, and they involve Play-Doh …

Where are our STANDARDS, America?

Since when are we the people that throw our hands up and accept the new normal?

We're the people, that despite all odds, we took it on. We didn't settle for less. And that's what they're telling you to do now, settle for less.

No. That's not who we are. Why would we be willing to sit around and wait for the government to fix it?

Don't lower your standards. That's un-American. We don't lower our standards. We raise standards. And that is our legacy.
