Whenever folks on the left find out that their elected officials in Congress might be taking lengthy vacations they begin to cry, whine, and panic because there are no laws being made and nothing is getting accomplished.

And then you have the Republicans on the other side of the spectrum, sitting back, feet on the desk, wide smiles on their faces because with Congress on recess there will be no laws made that can restrict liberty. Funny how perspective can change the whole meaning behind a situation.

Anyway, there are some indications from House Democrats that they might be going on recess until July 21.

Lawmakers returned to the Capitol Friday for only the third time since mid-March, when the House recessed due to the threat of the coronavirus.

They will vote on a $3 trillion economic aid package as well as a resolution allowing virtual committee business and proxy voting for the next 45 days unless renewed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat.

The measure includes a provision “that allows the House to remain in recess until July 21,” a Republican leadership aide said.

The part of the resolution that indicates this recess could be happening is focused on the rules for debate and allows Democrats “to declare the House adjourned to meet at a date and time to be announced by the Chair in declaring the adjournment,” from May 19 to July 21.

Members of the GOP are opposed to the recess, which is why the Democrats put this provision into the bill. It’s a measure to prevent them from calling up votes during the pro-forma sessions that are held every three days.

No matter how you slice the cheese, now is probably not the best time for an extended recess. The American people need the government working to keep things afloat during the coronavirus crisis, especially as states are now beginning to open back up and get their people back to work. We still don’t know how things are going to turn out as the reopening continues. There could be spikes in cases or even a second wave.

It’s important for the government to be functioning and ready to come up with solutions as problems present themselves.

Antifa Arrives in Minnesota, Amplifying Nightly Violence

Antifa is very real, no matter what the leftist trolls on social media say.

One of the most inane political arguments today seems to revolve around whether or not Antifa exists. How this is even in question is seriously concerning.  Those who self-identify as members of the group coordinate their appearance to declare their presence, carry flags bearing the Antifa logo, and have no problem organizing their antics online under the name. But, all too often, you’ll find someone on social media taking offense to this, declaring that Antifa is not an organization, but, rather, a culture or lifestyle choice. The reason for this purposeful deception is simple:  It give supporters of Antifa an out when it comes to the violence that they tend to amplify when they arrive to exploit some poor city’s recent troubles.  It give the internet trolls behind the movement a 4th wall to hide behind when things get heated. In the suburbs of Minneapolis this week, the group seemed to have no qualms about letting the world know that they had arrived to make trouble. Members of the violent far-left activist group Antifa identified themselves to a Fox News reporter who was on scene in Brooklyn Center, Minn., ahead of another night of unrest following the police-involved shooting of a motorist on Sunday. Correspondent Mike Tobin joined “The Ingraham Angle” to give the latest from the scene where throngs of protesters and law enforcement faced off following the reportedly accidental shooting death of Daunte Wright, 20, by now-resigned Officer Kimberly Potter. Potter has said she meant to reach for her taser instead of her gun while involved in an altercation with Wright at his car. The agitators left no doubt about their allegiances. Tobin, who was relocating to another part of the town at the time, spoke to Ingraham from inside a vehicle. “I can tell you this. The makeup of…

Riots. Looting. Race-baiting. All part of the new liberal agenda. In other words, these socialists will ball their eyes out until they get want they want. And what they want is no more cops. Or conservatives. And the MSM will continue to egg these radicals on. From 10WBNS: COLUMBUS, Ohio — People protesting the deaths of people by law enforcement officers were able to briefly get inside Columbus Division of Police Headquarters Tuesday night. Members of the group were at Mayme Moore Park earlier in the evening for a vigil and balloon release. Then, a crowd of about 50 demonstrators gathered outside police headquarters and marched around the immediate area. […] Police asked the demonstrators to leave and Fuqua said they pepper-sprayed at least one officer.
