Supreme Evil Overlord President of the National Assembly Diosdado Cabello giddily announced on Twitter yesterday that this afternoon’s plenary session will be full of surprises and is not to be missed. How exciting!
Seeing as my first choice of surprise (monkeys flying out of Diosdado’s arse) is not a very likely bet, your guess is as good as mine on how they will take this opportunity in our nation’s Legislature to publicly humiliate opposition MP’s instead of, um, legislating. Maybe they will out someone from the closet. Maybe they will play edited wiretapped conversations between MP´s that make it look like they’re getting money from the CIA. Maybe they will have a public beating of all opposition Diputados.. oh wait, that already happened.
On a more boring note, rumors are flying regarding a certain something that rhymes with Autoparlante.

We’ve been able to hang on for 19 years in one of the craziest media landscapes in the world. Now, the difficulty level was raised abruptly with the global pandemic. We’ve seen different media outlets in Venezuela (and abroad) cutting personnel to avoid closing shop. This is something we’re looking to avoid at all costs, and it seems we will. But your collaboration goes a long way in helping us weather the storm.Donate
