- 2017 Wednesday: President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans unveiled the first major revamp of the nation’s tax code in a generation, a plan that included deep tax cuts for corporations, simplified tax brackets and a near doubling of the standard deduction.

Meanwhile, the scientific journal “Nature” publishes an article on the giant tree-dwelling rat of the Solomon Islands, the ‘Vika,’ an animal capable of cracking open coconuts. Folks, everything grows bigger in the Tropics.
- 2018 Thursday: In the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, the accuser of Brett Kavanaugh- Dr. Christine Blasey Ford- sat before the committee members and laid out her allegations against Judge Kavanaugh with little emotion or credibility although the Democrats circled all around her proclaiming her to be a fantastic witness. Then, when Judge Kavanaugh sat before them, he lambasted the Democrats on the committee for making it all about politics and for destroying his family. In the end, the Judge appeared to be far more credible and produced evidence identifying his whereabouts on any given day. The Democrats are causing problems once again and carried their attacks on the Judge to the next day during a committee vote to move the nomination to the full Senate. Elsewhere, famed vocalist with the Jefferson Airplane[iv] and Jefferson Starship- Marty Balin- died on this date.
- 2019 Friday: As the Democrats gear up for their impeachment inquiry into President Donald J. Trump and the ‘hoped for crimes’ they believe he committed, the House issues its first subpoena to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
- 2020 Sunday: In New York City, Mayor Bill Di Blasio- a man who wants to be an absolute dictator- threatens to close everything down- especially Jewish neighborhoods of Queens and Brooklyn- because according to him, these area businesses and private schools are spreading the Chi-Vi to everyone else in the city. Meanwhile, Democratic presidential candidate “Pro-China Joe” Biden holds an extremely brief public appearance today in which, he bashed President Trump and his SCOTUS pick and mumbles something about ‘the last thing we need right now is the equivalent of a coup.’ He then takes four brief questions and goes off stage. One thing the former vice president said in his speech about the SCOTUS pick is that ‘it’s unfair to millions of voters who have already cast their votes.’ You heard it straight from the jackass’ mouth: EARLY VOTING MUST STOP- it’s bogus. When “Gropin’ Joe” answered questions, he urged GOP Senate members to do the ‘right thing’ when it comes to holding the vote for Amy Coney Barrett. Meanwhile, Texas finds itself battling brain-eating amoebas in at least six counties. Finally, dictator-for-life Xi Jinping brushes off criticism of ‘rampant human rights abuses’ and says the communist country is committed to making ‘good Chinese citizens out of the Uighur Muslims in western China and will continue forcing them to assimilate no matter what the other nations of the world say against them.’ Okay, Mr. Dictator, you are going to bulldoze them into becoming ‘good Chinese’ just as you have been doing to the Tibetan people since the late 1950s? What a great country, one that observes human rights. Yeah, right.
- 2020 Sunday A: The United Nations announces that the Houthi rebels and the Saudi-led coalition of anti-Iranian scumbags will conduct a prisoner swap of 1,000 or more prisoners. There is hope that peace may be achieved and soon. We suspect that as more Arab and Muslim nations begin recognizing the right of Israel to exist, the Iranian hegemony will begin to dwindle. Meanwhile, Armenia and Azerbaijan engage in some border scuffles resulting in the loss of military vehicles and aircraft. Finally, at the White House, President Donald J. Trump addresses reporters and asks the assembled hostile throng as to ‘WHY no one wants to know about the corruption of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his son, Hunter, when it comes to harvesting hundreds of millions of dollars from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and other leftist-Marxist global actors.’ News Media: HOW COME you don’t ask these questions? Why did Hunter Biden receive $3.5 million from the wife of Moscow, Russia’s mayor? For what? His boudoir services- wow.
