"But where says some is the King of America? I’ll tell you Friend, he reigns above, and doth not make havoc of mankind ... in America the law is king." Thomas Paine read by @jbf1755 https://t.co/jxX2SwH45g

We are live with @Mountvernon 's 2020 Founding Debates Lecture, "Pandemics in American History" featuring Elizabeth Fenn, Ph.D., Ashish K. Jha, M.D. (@ashishkjha ), historian John M. Barry, & James Hamblin, M.D. ( @jameshamblin ) https://t.co/xo9eG0n6T0

I am signing an executive order to hereby create an extra month in every year named "Somnus." Sleeping all month will be allowed. There. Poof. Now it exists. I have mastered the art of the executive order as it is now practiced. (And who wouldn't want this?)

Quoted @Yamiche

Pres Trump: I am signing the first-ever executive order to affirm that it is the "official policy of the United States Government to protect patients with pre-existing conditions." Fact: The Affordable Care Act signed by Pres Obama made covering pre-existing conditions U.S. law.

This is like Trump writing an Executive Order declaring Joe Biden the President. 100% Meaningless. Actions speak louder than words. Trump's DOJ has asked the Supreme Ct to strike down as unconstitutional ALL of the protection in current law for people w/preexisting conditions. https://t.co/4fyrxzthKA

What if—bear with me—we just vote so hard, we freaking win it all on Election Night? What if everyone who can vote early in person does, the first day? What if people stay in line? What if county clerks count absentee ballots efficiently in many places? What then?

Our own Ed Coord Matt is on the ball this week--and full of hope! Check out this week's "History Matters (...and so does coffee!)" w/@jbf1755 up now at https://t.co/7x5pfgMKDV or at our YouTube channel! DL: https://t.co/Ujm9ly3i4U #yayhistory #historymugs #historymatters #sschat

Hey folks: This morning's discussion of the importance of HOPE in the health of democracy is already posted! Give it a listen. https://t.co/dYjaCtj8gb

I don't know who needs to hear this, but here's the Red Army Choir singing 'Sex Bomb.' https://t.co/LIVoRc2fHT

Why does this exist? Really? Why did this happen? It looks like a Russian version of Mel Brook's "Springtime for Hitler." https://t.co/6O5hQICsrA

#AmericanHistory has always been #Revisionist #history: ⁦@MichaelHattem⁩ writes about how patriot histories of the founding created a mythos that still pervades public debate. https://t.co/KpnbM21iKT

Quoted @katisjewell

A family member recently passed away, leaving behind her bonded pair of cats, orange tabbies, around 6 years old, in Austin, TX. They are in need of a new home. If you know anyone looking to adopt in that area, I can put you in touch.

Deleted a RT because I can't prove the person's assertion. But my message still stands. VOTE.

YOUR VOTE MATTERS. VOTE.

I've been tiptoeing back towards Twitter a bit the past week or so after three months away, and it seems ... I don't know. Like a rundown café with all your friends in it, but they're depressed and a bit mad, and there's a war on.

This. https://t.co/CJEywl0nxI

Injured-looking pigeon at 353 W 57th, near W 57th and 9th. I couldn’t stop but if anyone in the area can check it out and maybe bring to @wildbirdfund https://t.co/9XuUrJQtma

Anyone near 57th and 9th who can save an injured pigeon by bringing him to the wonderful folks at @wildbirdfund? https://t.co/F6WewGnFIr

My takeaway after listening to the brilliant and inspiring @jbf1755 on History Matters this morning: “The WE of ‘we the people’ matters a lot.” We have the power; we are the people. Let’s make this country what we want to leave our children. Go!

Thank you @jbf1755 for today. “Hope. Not surrendering to threats. Defending democracy. We can affect change. That creates hope.” @historyed #historymatters https://t.co/V3GfGbeKxY

@jbf1755 Apropos of this morning’s coffee, remember John Lewis: “Democracy is not a state. It is an act, and each generation must do its part to help build what we called the Beloved Community, a nation and world society at peace with itself.”

Quoted @jgeltzer

THREAD: There's a lot of concern right now about Trump & how he might handle an election loss after @bartongellman's article & the terrible answer Trump gave to @BrianKarem. But we're not powerless to ensure a peaceful transfer if Trump loses. Here's what can be done now. /1

THREAD. DJT has been issuing threats of what he might do. So far, they are only threats. Not a done deal. We can do things to prevent it. Read below. https://t.co/wL4LBL2R2x
