Week of September 16

Oil prices jumped the most ever following a major attack on Saudi oil facilities being blamed on Iran. President Trump immediately tweeted authorization to release oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve to protect Americans from higher prices and smaller cars.

Week of September 9

Doctors keep pushing the limits of IVF, and last week a woman in India set a new record for "world's oldest mom" when she gave birth to twins at age 74.

From the album Lord of the Fries (1994)

Week of September 2

Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she's "alive and on my way to being very well" following her recent cancer treatment. Donald Trump very graciously wished her well. The President and the 86-year-old Supreme Court Justice have not always been on such cordial terms, but each seems more determined than ever to outlast the other's term in office.

Week of August 26

Student survivors of the Parkland school shooting released a new plan for "a safer America" following the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. For its part, the National Rifle Association is just digging in deeper and standing its ground.

Week of August 19

It's really simple! President Trump explained last week at a rally in New Hampshire: "See, the bottom line is...You have no choice but to vote for me because your 401k, everything is going to be down the tubes. So whether you love me or hate me, you've got to vote for me."

Week of August 12

Next up for a presidential pardon: Rod Blagojevich! The former Illinois governor is serving 14 years for trying to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat. President Trump says the same guy he fired for incompetence on "Celebrity Apprentice" was treated "unbelievably unfairly" by the feds for a bit of "braggadocio" and "a phone call where nothing happens."

Week of August 5

President Trump is back at it, slapping even more tariffs on China. To American companies complaining about the damage to their business, "Tariff Man" has a message: build it in the U.S.A.

Week of July 29

Britain has a new prime minister, and he's got a plan for Brexit! He's a man who knows first-hand about cutting ties permanently. There's still a lot that could get complicated.

From the album The Lyin' Kings (2019).

Week of July 22

Special Counsel Robert Mueller might, just maybe, finally testify before Congress this week. He already said he won't have anything new to add that isn't already in his detailed, two-volume written report, but that's just not good enough for desperate Democrats.
