Dear Americans:

"There are certain forces urging resistance to law in the name of freedom. They are not seeking freedom for themselves - they have it.

They are seeking to enslave others.

Their works are evil. They know it.
They must be resisted.…
The evil they represent must be overcome by the good others represent.

Their ideas which are wrong, for the most part imported, must be supplanted by ideas which are right.

This can be done.
The meaning of America is a power which can not be overcome."

- Calvin Coolidge, 1920.
"Prosecution of the criminals and education of the ignorant are the remedy. It is fundamental that freedom is not to be secured by disobedience of the law - even the freedom of the slave depended on the supremacy of the constitution.

There is no mystery about this.
They who sin are the servants of sin.
They who break the laws are the slaves of their own crimes.

It is not for the advantage of others that the citizen is [[abjured]] to obey the law, but for his own advantage.
That which we claim the right to do to others, that must he admit that others have the right to do to him.

His obedience is his own protection.

He is not submitting himself to the dictates of others, but responding to the requirements of his own maker.
Laws are not manufactured. They are not imposed. They are rules of action existing from everlasting to everlasting.

He who resists them resists himself.
He commits suicide.
The nature of man requires sovereignty.

Government must govern.
To obey is life; to disobey is death.
Organized government is the expression of the life of the commonwealth.

Into your hands is entrusted the grave responsibility of its protection and perpetuation."
"Government is not and must not be a cold, impersonal machine, but a human and more human agency.

Appealing to the reason.
Satisfying the heart.
Full of mercy.

Assisting the good
Resisting the wrong.

Delivering the weak from any impositions of the powerful.
This is not paternalism, not servitude imposed from without, but the freedom of a righteous self-direction from within.

And thus it must be humanized, not destroyed.
It must be an instrument not of selfishness, but of service.

Change not the law, but the attitude of the mind.
Let our citizens look not to the false prophets,
but to the children.
Let them fix their eyes on Plymouth Rock
as well as Beacon Hill.

The supreme choice must be not the things that are seen, but the things that are unseen.
Our government belongs to the people."
And THAT, my friends, is how you Law and Order.

I agree that @joebiden shouldn't spend his entire presidency focusing on Trump.

I do, however, think it would be worth one day a week to focus on measures that will prevent ANOTHER Trump* from ever holding a position of public trust.

* predatory con men
Investigations fall under the umbrella of an independent justice department and - more importantly - @HouseDemocrats.

Not just into Trump and his administration - but into the forces that subjugated the GOP to Trump's will.
And... throw that now-convicted serial pedophile who was speaker of the house and Jeffrey Epstein into the mix too.

Because it's all part of the same story.

if the 2020 Presidential election alone cost $14bn, that establishes the value of an individual's vote in the range $58 (for all potential voters) & $90 (if only counting actual votes).

Wouldn't disenfranchising voters by excluding > 12 legit ballots be felony larceny?
Similarly, wouldn't suppression of >20 eligible voters by means of closing down polls or other acts that don't quite fit the definition of fraud also be considered felony larceny?
Just taking a rough stab at this before bedtime -

while state officials aren't USG employees, one could theorize that excluding legitimately cast ballots in a Presidential election could be considered unlawful conversion of 'property' -

When @BarackObama talks about identity, it isn't JUST about race, @AriMelber.

It's about who you identify AS - and that includes individuals' identities based on flawed understandings of patriotism and conservatism as influenced by hostile actors.
It's about inherited, inclusive AND exclusive identities (I am this, but I am also that VS I am this, therefore I am not that).

incl: "I am a New Yorker; I am an American"
inherited: "I am a New Yorker, so I am an American"
excl: "I am American, so I am not British"
The danger we face is with identity when political ideology shifts towards an exclusively exclusive model - and that's what hostile actors (both foreign and domestic) have been pushing for my entire lifetime:

the otherization of those who value this nation's original ideals.

Oh boy.

It seems the ENTIRE GA state infrastructure for remote work for COVID is managed through Airnet Group.

And they just happened to get it set up by December 2019. Before COVID was a problem?


This is BAD. @staceyabrams @sfpelosi
EVERY bit of data for the State of Georgia can be accessed through the same corporate entity that was hacked by Russia in 2015 - but most of THOSE emails + data wasn't released.

Used for blackmail and election tampering, yes. But not publicly released…
Oops - forgot the link from up top:…

what proportion of living Americans have inherited more than $100,000, or $500,000 that originated with wealth derived from slavery?

How does that transfer of wealth map to political identity and geographic location?

Does anyone have a reference or primary source data?
It's a shame that Adam Goodheart at @washcoll doesn't have a twitter account. We could really use some more learned historians around here - to proviede truthful answers to questions about slavery and political dynamics around the civil war...…
Note: above is untitled, for some reason - it's the proportion of households per state that owned slaves.

This is the overall proportion in all slave-owning states. Image

Did you know that the murder of a federal officer in Oakland, CA and the burning down of the 3rd precinct in MN were a coordinated operation?…
And that Facebook was used to facilitate nationwide coordination of a terrorist action?
And the Boi who helped burn down the 3rd precinct in Minneapolis was working with partners who were providing arms to Hamas?
