And while you’re at it @piersmorgan @Peston @SamCoatesSky @maitlis & @krishgm can you explain to them that the virus won’t go away just because the “old & vulnerable” have been vaccinated. It will continue to spread through communities until ADEQUATE SAFETY measures are in place.
As we’re seeing now on “the frontline” WHOLE FAMILIES are infected. The combination of advice to #schools/#earlyyears & #Christmas/#NewYear created repeated family #SuperSpreaderEvents of monumental proportions.
There are young ppl who’re sick & in ITU. More cases = more v sick.
INDOOR workplaces are NOT #CovidSecure .
#Schools & #earlyyears settings are NOT #CovidSecure.
Too many ppl are travelling, to many work outside their home & are in education/childcare.
Look at the roads,the #Tube this morning.

Here's Alex Azar #gaslighting on #COVID19 #vaccines & also appearing to shoot down Slaoui $MRNA half-dose idea.

Azar/Slaoui vowed 40M doses - enough to vaccinate 20M - by end of 2020. #Christmas was always part of their schedule. They failed but want to make excuse after excuse.
How much confidence should Americans have when Alex Azar says he's surprised there haven't been more glitches with #COVID19 vaccinations & brushes off everything that's gone wrong as expected? Really?… #vaccines $PFE $MRNA
The commitment was to have 40 million #COVID19 #vaccines doses - enough to vaccinate 20 million people -"distributed" by the end of 2020, not "available" as Azar is #gaslighting today & Slaoui/Perna tried to do same at last week's #WarpSpeed briefing. Azar failed on delivery.

Thread - an open letter to @Keir_Starmer

Dear Keir,

I write to urge you to at least ask your party to abstain from the Brexit Trade deal vote. Many people are surprised that you said you would back it without even seeing it but I also understand ...
that you are fighting an untrustworthy PM. In such circumstances, it pays to learn from Sun Tzu, Machiavelli and the world’s best poker players, by not revealing your final strategy until you have seen #Johnson’s final position and voting intentions close to the vote.
I wrote this press statement for your elaboration, should you choose to abstain:

“On #Christmas Eve, I was minded to back Boris Johnson’s deal in the national interest. I acted in good faith, placing my trust in the PM and put my faith in the #Brexit deal as presented.

Jesus was a Socialist

Jesus was a socialist, this is not open for debate.
See the epic giveaway? That’s the giveaway.
Be it time; be it deed; be it goods; be it creed.
There’s no exception.
Now if Jesus veering left, should cause you some upset,
Consult your nearest Bible, exorcise the tribal.
Love gives time; love does deeds; love is good; love’s a creed.
Love lies in action.
Now my lip service argues that your words just won’t do.
It’s actions that speak loudest; they exact a price.
Love is hard; love demands. Love’s not gripped, in our hands;
Misers hold only things.

Top U.S stocks making #investors very #rich

#Pope Honorius I (625-638) was condemned and excommunicated for heresy by the sixth general council in 680. Stephen VI (896-89) had the body of his predecessor Pope Formosus exhumed and put on trial (this is the famous cadaver synod) for his unbecoming conduct during his tenure.
Stephen had Formosa's papal vestments removed and two fingers from his right hand cut off. Formosa's' body was thrown into the Tiber. After the synod, public opinion turned against Stephen. He was deposed in an uprising and strangled to death.
Then there was John-12 (955-964) who died a mysterious death, after having been accused of adultery & turning his pontification into a whore house. However, he had more than his match in Benedict-9 to the only man 2 have served as Pope for 3 discontinuous periods, beginning 1032.

In the 13th century, Pope Gregory IX (#Pope from 1227-1241), believed that cats had Satan himself within them . Following a Papal Bull (essentially laying down #Church doctrine), virtually everyone in Western Europe began to exterminate cats. #Christmas #Christianity
Thousands were accused of #witches or devil worshipers, and either tortured, killed or both. The cat genocide petered out following Gregory death, but the gory tradition remained alive. #Christmas #Christianity
During another witch hunting frenzy in the late 1400s, cats were killed en masse again, as a part of Church’s war against #Satan. Killing of cats on such a massive scale, resulted in a huge increase in rat population in #Europe. #Christmas #Christianity

However, #Pope Julius l decision to steal a pagan event and re-launch it under a Christian brand didn’t go well with a large section of devout #Christians. There were instances, when Christian authorities put a stop to #Christmas celebrations.
In 1659, the Massachusetts Bay colony banned #Christmas, as in subject to criminal prosecution and a fine of five shillings (now, about $ 8000) as part of its efforts to "reform" and 'Purify' the church by purging it of the idolatry and ceremonial excesses.
Earlier, in the 1640s, #England underwent a revolution that drove king Charles I from his throne (and ultimately to the headman's block) and established a #Puritan Commonwealth.

This is history repeating itself. ET's have a nickname for our planet: "The Slave Planet". The same sadistic wealthiest groups of people are trying to control the population by enslaving them through systems: financial, Healthcare (sickcare), pharmaceuticals, education, debt...
Suppressing knowledge such as the full table of elements, ETs & IDs, dimensions, our etheric body, the quantum realm, advanced ET technology that can cure any disease or ailment, for quantum travel and to provide zero-point free unlimited energy, our true history, staged events..

Dear friends: Let's be honest: This is a strange #Christmas, maybe the strangest any of us have ever experienced. Most of us are far from our homes, far from our friends and families, and those who are able to be with their friends and families are afraid, worried or nervous...
In the past few months, all of have faced the prospect of suffering, illness and death, and many of us have experienced great economic hardships.

So what does it mean to say "Merry Christmas"?...
This is the entrance to the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. It's a tiny opening, no more than five feet high. Originally it was much larger, but it was made smaller and smaller to ensure that succeeding waves of invaders would not be able to enter the church easily....

#ChristmasEve Mass from the Vatican was really depressing & strange in the way of 2020. Perhaps it would have been unseemly in a year when so many have died to be too celebratory. But Pope Francis seemed deeply sad. And had restricted the gathering, which is usually thousands.
Pope Francis had limited the number of people to 100 with the number of cardinals at only 30. The effect in the world's largest church was sparse and austere. Francis used one of the small side altars. There were none of the intl readings there usually are each Christmas.
There were only a handful of children. None of the delegations from other countries like usual. Pope Francis's homily was about the metaphor of #Christmas as our rebirth in Christ. It was also about his consistent themes of helping the poor, the sick and the vulnerable.

Listening to Christmas albums on vinyl as @wspittman wrap gifts and get ready for Christmas morning.

First up: @celinedion's "These Are Special Times." #Christmas
The first song on this album is O Holy Night, and it's my favorite versions of one of my favorite #Christmas albums.

O Holy Night is an abolitionist Christmas song (written by Adolphe Adam in 1847, translated to English by unitarian John Sullivan Dwight).
Many singers (like Mariah) omit the abolitionist verse. Céline keeps it:

🎶 Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother
And in His name, all oppression shall cease 🎶

Merry #ChristmasEve to all the Twitter followers.

Have a lovely holiday...

And, If Santa was black: Many white people would phone the cops, and, complain that a fat, black dude was on the roof -- the middle of the night screaming "Ho ho ho".
