This is the pre-vacation Congressional Calendar according to the NAB: July: green, House, blue, Senate.
Now given that CongressCritters only earn a paltry $174,000 (and benefits) yearly, and swear not to enrich themselves while in office, we can easily understand while they may require some extra leisure time.
‘Prince Charles sees ‘golden opportunity’ in Covid-19 pandemic as UK economy faces biggest recession in centuries’, Helen Buyniski, 4 Jun, 2020, RT.com
“The UK’s Prince Charles has said that the coronavirus crisis represents a global “reset moment” – one which seemingly allows leaders to ram through sustainability initiatives as cash-strapped citizens have no choice but to obey.
‘Prince Charles encourages jobless people to ‘pick fruit and veg’ during pandemic; The Prince of Wales has issued a rallying cry on behalf of the ‘Pick for Britain’ campaign, which is hoping to fill some of the 80,000 fruit and vegetable picking jobs usually filled by EU workers;, mirror.co.uk, May 19, 2020
“The Prince of Wales has come out in support of the Pick for Britain campaign, which aims to get people toiling in Britain’s fields.

And it couldn’t have happened to a more worthy putz…er…peckerwood. The wealthiest man in the world treats his wage slaves like…slaves, including surveilling them in the work place, including with wristbands that monitor their hand movements to speed up work in Amazon warehouses. This story has many faces by now; here are a few. Oh, but first: it may be that Bezos hasn’t disavowed the selfies, so he may not be ripe for what I’d advised Anthony Weiner back in the day, and that was to claim: “Hey, that’s not my weiner; mine’s much bigger!”
Upon entering the WEF site yesterday, this fascinating video from last year was featured:
A preview of the lofty conference from wsws: ‘Climate change “spin” as Davos gathering confronts mounting environmental and economic crisis’, Nick Beams, 20 January 2020
“The World Economic Forum (WEF), which holds its annual meeting this week in Davos, Switzerland, has tried in recent years to feign concern about the welfare of society as it brings together the ultra-wealthy, government and media representatives and the heads of major corporations to defend the profit system. This year’s gathering is no exception.
Shhhhhhhh, hush now…most of the sources are anonymous and Deep Background… And yeah, it’s kinda a throw-away post, but it proved too irresistible to pass up…

“Members of the House Judiciary Committee and other more liberal-minded lawmakers and congressional aides have been privately discussing the possibility of drafting articles that include obstruction of justice or other “high crimes” they believe are clearly outlined in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report — or allegations that Trump has used his office to benefit his bottom line.
I’ll let CNN set the stage, then I’ll trade off squibs from CNN, abc news, Bloomberg, wsws.org, foxnews.com, and sputniknews.com, sometimes quite in contrast. I’ve brought some of the videos CNN has on youtube (not that I’ve watched, sorry) in order that we all might be able to see what the various actors in this production look like, sound like, and so on. Spooky Schiff; Taylor? OMG: Desiccated Turtle face or worse?
But lest we believe that Ukraine-gate is a replacement for a failed Russia-gate, this televised hearing put that notion to rest. Also, the House is in a major hurry to get all this finished ahead of the first primaries in…Iowa? Continue reading

Surreal, if totally expected, given his insane military history , Southern Command, and run for president as a D.
Raining capital in nineteen words:
They used to dub the leaders Great. Not because they were good guys & gals, but because they achieved the extreme. On horses. Call that ancient history along with the mid-twentieth century, but it’s not just recently that words like “marvelous” have been taken for “wonderful” and almost never WTF?! Such simple choices, little turns of phrase, sound uttered self-consciously if you listen really closely, as if there’s an ambiguity-minimum dishonesty requirement set forth in The Really Real Book of the Law somewhere. At any rate, quality propaganda requires retail twisting of truth as well as wholesale dissemination of dubious modern mythology. It’s when words matter most.
