American historian here Rand Paul. The Espionage Act of 1917 was misused against Eugene Debs for being a conscientious objector to war. It is being used appropriately against Trump for stealing and misusing national security documents.
The espionage act was abused from the beginning to jail dissenters of WWI. It is long past time to repeal this egregious affront to the 1st Amendment. Repeal the Espionage Act – The Future of Freedom Foundation fff.org/2019/06/03/repeal-th…

Omg I would absolutely love to hear @TheRealDratch on @sree’s Sunday NYTimes read along!
Reading @nytimes online is always like “Democracy in peril” “Climate change more rapid than previously thought” “WE TRIED 1000 HAND-HELD VACUUMS AND THIS IS OUR FAVORITE!”

I have been in a number of stadiums where they lay out t-shirts for fans, but I've never been in one where they lay out 2,000 banana suits. Welcome to Savannah! @YellowTuxJesse and @TheSavBananas have done it again...

How do you prepare like the CEO of @Disney? 1. Involve lots of people early on. 2. Put pencils down one week before the event 3. Prepare for third derivative follow-up questions. 4. Keep some backup in your pocket. Listen to the full process here! donyaeger.com/corporate-comp…

In 1991, amidst the fatwa that threatened his life, Salman Rushdie made a surprise appearance @Columbia and delivered this speech. Thirty-one years later, in light of the brutal attack on him, it’s worth revisiting. archive.nytimes.com/www.nyti… @columbiajourn

Three months ago I heard Salman Rushdie speak at the PEN World Voices Festival. He said: “A poem cannot stop a bullet. A novel can’t defuse a bomb … But we are not helpless … We can sing the truth & name the liars.” We must tell better stories than the tyrants.

For 33 years, Salman Rushdie has embodied freedom and the fight against obscurantism. He has just been the victim of a cowardly attack by the forces of hatred and barbarism. His fight is our fight; it is universal. Now more than ever, we stand by his side.

I was there 2 weeks ago giving a talk. It's a lovely place with a fantastic, curious and welcoming community. This is shocking. I hope Salman Rushdie isn't injured and can recover and heal quickly. How disgusting.
