My friend @YvonnecherieVG was a verger at @StJohnDivineNYC on #ChristmasEve. I love how happy Yvonne is in the video (2nd verger here) and I am grateful she had me, @rerutled, @FrankieEdozien and Scott as her guests. St. John’s is such a welcoming place #NYC
And here, at the end of the #ChristmasEve service, @YvonnecherieVG is the verger singing Joy to the World joyously! I hope your Christmas was fantastic and that 2020 is a wonderful year in which we see more of each other, Yvonne 💜✊🏽❤️

1. 🎄Twas the night before Christmas... and all through the house @TheDemocrats were clueless while Nancy got soused. 😵
Their hopes for #impeachment
We’re hung... on nothing but thin air, but it’s all about politics so what do they care @SpeakerPelosi #KAG @realDonaldTrump
2 @realDonaldTrump was all nestled and snug in his bed...
While visions of #TRUMP2020
Danced in his head.
He in Pajamas, supper model @FLOTUS at his side...making #Liberals jealous, hateful and snide.
When On the steps of the congress their arose such a clatter...
3 Adumb Schitt sprang from his office to see what was the matter...away to the steps he flew like a flash, but he slipped on his own scum and fell on his A$$! 😂🎄
And when he awoke, what did he see? #Durham and #BARR
Who said “come with me”

A #ChristmasEve Poem
𝓯𝓻𝓸𝓶 𝓜𝓝 𝓯𝓸𝓻 𝓦𝓪𝓻𝓻𝓮𝓷

’Twas the end of a hard year, and all through the nation
Americans hoped for a quiet vacation.
Most folks are unstirring, like mice and mouse spouses,
But @TeamWarren volunteers aren't in their houses:
They're going a-canvassing, neighbor by neighbor,
To talk about healthcare and Black women's labor; 
They're heading to parties with Reach on their phones
And talking with strangers about student loans;
They call and they text every number they can
To talk about @ewarren's every last plan:
The wealth tax, the New Deals (the Green and the Blue),
Free childcare and college for me and for you;

Thousands flee north-west Syria amid fierce assault by Assad #ChristmasEve
Up to 30,000 leave area of Idlib province as government forces push to reopen road from Damascus to Aleppo
A mass exodus of civilians from the last rebel-held stronghold in Syria has begun as thousands of people flee towards the Turkish border in the face of a fierce new military assault by Bashar al-Assad and his Russian allies.
As many as 30,000 people have left the area around the town of Maarat al-Numan after four days of airstrikes and heavy shelling paved the way for Syrian government troops to push deeper into north-western Idlib province.

Alright, #WarOnChristmas freedom fighters! I am here to compose my last daily thread in this campaign!

We have fought hard. We are weary. We may need to vent. So I propose we continue the Festivus airing of grievances. And boy do I have one to air.

Why is #ChristmasEve a thing?
So sit back and relax in as coastal elite a manner as possible--if you have them at your disposal, sit down at a MacBook Pro and drink organic ginger lemon kombucha, as I am doing--and join is as I go over all of my objections to #ChristmasEve.

What other holidays get an Eve??
Alright, alright, some Yahoo will immediately burst in like the Kool-Aid man and shout, "New Year's Eve!"

But bear with me; I will attend to objections such as this in the most curmudgeonly way possible as I go through this thread. And NYE is simply not a secular equivalent.

The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran, according to U.S. and European officials and congressional staff briefed on the operation afterward
Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.

It's #ChristmasEve and at this time last year I did not think I would live to see another #Christmas.
It has been a really hard year for me and The Wife. I have had some major health setbacks and a lot of suffering, but I am still alive and what a gift that is.
I want to thank all my Twitter friends and followers for helping me through this year. Thank you for reading and supporting my work. Thank you for buoying my spirits when I have been at my lowest points. Thank you for being a community of activists and resisters and fighters.
It can be deeply isolating to be a journalist in this climate. It can be deeply isolating to be sick and #disabled in this very ableist society. When I've needed the solace of community, I've been able to find it here. Thank you so much.

Wishing you the very best holidays.❤

It's bn a brutal holiday season in many parts of #Nigeria. In the NE, #BokoHaram ambushed a military convoy monday, on highway linking Maiduguri, capital of Borno state, with Damaturu in neighbouring Yobe state, killing 13 soldiers & a @PoliceNG officer…
Unsurprising, reports emerged shortly thereafter indicating that up to 167 @policeNG personnel in preparation for posting to counter-insurgency frontlines in NE #Nigeria have absconded before deployment, taking their weapons with them…
While the rest of the country marked Christmas, forced displacement appears to have intensified in NE #Nigeria, with @nemanigeria registering over 2,046 IDPs over the past 48 hours in one LGA…

Not a bad way to reach the midpoint of Xmas Eve.

Wrote this for #ChristmasEve


Twas the night before Christmas, & all through the White House
Not a cabinet member was quitting nor being forced out

The government was shutdown, Trump didn't care
In hopes that his border wall soon would be there
Don Jr and Eric were nestled all snug in their beds
While visions of hunting endangered species danced in their heads

And Melania in her separate room, and Trump in a rage
Watching CNN talk about immigrant kids in a cage
When over on Fox News there arose such a clatter
He turned on Sean Hannity to see what was the matter

Away to his iPhone he flew like a flash
Getting ready to tweet as he sat on his ass

Between age 21-30 is a very worrisome period for young men/women, all their thoughts constantly darting back and forth between how am I gonna turn out in life, who am I gonna marry, how's my future path, hopes and aspirations gonna take shape
but then those that hav an understanding and know that "God's thoughts/plans towards them are thoughts of good and not of evil to bring them into a good and expected future" will have these worries also, but these worries will be greatly dissipated #ChristmasEve
by the functioning of this knowledge in them and they will begin to see how the dots connect as they move with God leading them by his peace; they would come into an awareness of the thoughts and practical steps to take that are in line with God's thoughts of good and not of evil

And in those days a decree did go out from the Elite Four that all Pokémon trainers were to be taxed; and thus each returned unto their own province. And thus was Jesus, our shiny Ampharos with dragon pulse, left to guard a gym, for there was nothing much better for him to do.
And lo, there were trainers seeking Pokémon in the fields, and the shininess of Jesus of Johto did shine roundabout them, for he was a shiny. And they were sore jelly. #MerryChristmas #BahHumbug #MondayMorning #ChristmasCheer #ChristmasEve #PokemonGO
And there came unto Jesus of Johto renowned trainers from Alola, bearing gifts of golden raspberries, silver pinap berries, and nanab berries, for they had received a vision that Jesus would be at the gym at Kroger. But Jesus’s trainer pondered all these things up in her heart.

After a jam-packed 2 days at #SciOut18🌪(thx @ASBMB & @rockedu_!) it was time to reflect! 🤔 Reflection is so important, but it can be hard to find ⏰ to really just think! 💭 Some of my thoughts 👉

What’s inside? 🧐 It’s FORMAMIDE! 🤗 Formally removing RNA’s form with formamide! 🤓 FORMAMIDE in loading buffer breaks up & replaces the bonds between bases holding RNA's shape together 👇

Before I shut down for the holidays, a few thoughts on #StarWars #TheLastJedi.. Where to begin? Well, to start, it’s the first blockbuster I can remember that demands you scan all edges of the frame. A wide screen has rarely been used this dynamically.
Not to get all David Bordwell on you guys but most blockbusters still do center their action in the middle of the frame regardless of the widescreen format, so what Rian Johnson does is incredible - worthy of Kurosawa, Tati, Preminger, film's masters of widescreen aesthetics.
Then you have the story, a brilliant deconstruction of mythic tropes many #StarWars fans have taken for granted. Johnson’s film says, quite explicitly, that maybe the Jedi weren’t that great, that we can build people and groups up into legends - and maybe legends are overrated.

(1) Here's my latest Team Trump #PhotosThread.📸🦁🇺🇸

The previous one ran from Dec 8 to 18:

Info & links to 12 other photos threads since June 2017:… … …

Enjoy! RT to help #MAGA
(2) The President started the week with a landmark National Security Strategy speech in Washington, DC. #PeaceThroughStrength #AmericaFirst
(3) Oh noes! He held the glass with both hands again! Probably because he unconsciously worries about spilling some, like I do. We're neat freaks and germaphobes, stop judging us!😎
