Michael Schaus - In Other News: It's Good to be the King; Senate Kills Attempt to Block Executive Amnesty
Posted: 2/4/2015 12:21:00 PM EST

Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:

Apparently, eastern Ukraine has seen a steady stream of Russian-made military weapons… Heck, I wouldn’t even be surprised if some of those weapons came with a free soldier or two.

(Free Beacon)

The self-described “activist Attorney General” Eric Holder told reporters that he “fixed” George Bush’s politicized Department of Justice... Skeptics will be investigated, and harassed.

(Fox News)

An attempt to block Obama’s executive amnesty died in the Senate when all 46 Democrats (and one Democrat that self identifies as a Republican) voted against debating the bill. Long live the king.

(CNS News)

Marijuana dispensaries are now selling pot from vending machines in Seattle… After all, a vending machine is much cheaper than a $15 minimum wage employee. (I love it when liberal values clash with each other.)

(NBC News)

Jesse Ventura told Alan Colmes that the US (and American sniper Chris Kyle) is analogous to Nazism and communism because of our “occupation” and invasion of Iraq… Here’s a tip for you, Jesse: When Alan Colmes sounds (more or less) like the voice of reason in a conversation, you may have wandered outside the bounds of intelligent thought.

(Fox News)

Harry Reid’s brother was arrested for drunk driving, battery of a police officer, possession of a firearm while intoxicated, and generally behaving like a criminal. It’s fair to assume this is some elaborate conspiracy orchestrated by the Koch Brothers or George W Bush…

Michael Schaus - In Other News: Media Conveniently Forgets About Progressives Hating Vaccines
Posted: 2/3/2015 12:55:00 PM EST

Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:

Remember in 2011 when Obama predicted that his policies (and roughly $2.4 billion) would help put “one million” electric cars on the road by 2015? Well… He was apparently aiming a little high. It’s 2015, and there are under 300,000 on the road. Maybe Americans are just holding out for those hover cars we were promised in the 50’s.

(CNS News)

The US is currently talking with North Korea about maybe setting up some talks about moving forward with talks about nuclear weaponry. So, we’re talking about talks about talks. Why don’t we just have China ask the Koreans if they would be interested in going out with us?

(Washington Post)

The press is trying to pretend that GOP contenders for 2016 are pandering to their “conservative base” by opposing vaccinations. There’s just one problem: It’s largely left wing hippies, and the “live natural” liberal fringe that are actually opposed to vaccines... But yeah: I’m totally sure the GOP is trying to court the all-important gluten free/ vegan/ anti-vaccine vote in California.

(Buzzfeed)

A bunch of super rich celebrities and liberal elites have decided that America really, really, really needs Elizabeth Warren as the next President of the United States. And if there’s one thing Hollywood liberals are good at, it’s determining what Americans want. #Taken3

(Breitbart)

Debbie Wasserman Schultz (the “gem” who runs the DNC) is walking back comments she made that were critical of Jews marrying non-Jewish partners… I mean gay marriage is totally cool; but interfaith marriages are just plain wrong. Right, Debbie?

(NBC News)

An 11 year old girl used a shotgun to defend herself from a home invader. I wonder if Mikey Bloomberg is going to include that in his next batch of phony statistics.

(Free Beacon)

Michael Schaus - In Other News: Iraqis Like American Sniper; Progressives Furious
Posted: 2/2/2015 12:43:00 PM EST

Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:

So far every single for-profit venture started by Al Sharpton has been shut down for failure to pay taxes. Maybe Obama should focus less on taxing foreign profits, and a little more on making sure his sycophants cough up their “fair share”.

(National Review)

Was it the worst play call in Super Bowl history? The Seattle Seahawks looked kinda like the GOP toward the end of the game, as they constantly got in their own way.

(NY Post)

A reporter at the Independent has described the White House as being “incandescent with rage” over Netanyahu’s upcoming address to Congress. Isn’t that illegal? Aren’t we supposed to switch over to compact fluorescents?

(Independent)

We know that “progressives” don’t like it, but how did Iraqis like American Sniper? Well… Apparently they loved it. So far, only terrorists and liberals seem to have a problem with Chris Kyle killing bunch of bad guys.

(Fox News)

April Ryan, a White House reporter with American Urban Radio Networks, said she will “probably cry” when Obama leaves office. She might want to visit with Chris Matthews about that thrill running up his leg.

(Washington Examiner)

Congress is pushing for Obama to seek congressional approval over any deal with Iran. Unsurprisingly, the imperial President is threatening to veto such legislation, because behaving like the executive of a democratic republic is such a bore…

(J Post)

An elementary student has been suspended for making “terroristic threats” after he threatened to turn a classmate invisible using the ring from the Hobbit. I guess the school is really serious about this whole “zero tolerance” thing. It makes you wonder if imaginary friends need visitor badges.

(Daily Mail)

Michael Schaus - In Other News: Libertarian Goes "Michael Moore" Crazy on American Sniper
Posted: 1/30/2015 3:49:00 PM EST

Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:

Old News: Mitt Romney will not win the Presidency in 2016. Actual News: He’s also decided not to run for President in 2016.

(Fox News)

Sen. Jeff Sessions seems to believe that Loretta Lynch will implement Obama’s executive amnesty. And so, he’s posed the question “Why confirm an Attorney General who will execute unconstitutional policies?”… Um, because King Obama said to do it?

(CNS News)

The White House refuses to negotiate on their executive amnesty… Because, obviously, the word “compromise” means everyone doing things exactly the way Obama would like them done.

(Daily Caller)

The Vice President of a Libertarian organization said that Chris Kyle (an American sniper who protected other troops by killing armed insurgents) is no different than Adam Lanza (psychopathic teenager who murdered defenseless school children in Newtown Connecticut)… Look, Libertarians: When you start making Michael Moore sound contemplative by comparison, you might want to step back and reevaluate your position.

(Breitbart)

It takes almost $110,000 in annual income to live in Washington DC “comfortably”… Strangely, Liz Warren isn’t outraged over the super-liberal city’s apparent disregard for lower class income earners. But, then again, most of them already vote Democrat, so who cares, right?

(Breitbart)

There’s a manhunt in Britain for a guy who said some nasty things (on a public bus) about Islam. #JeSuisCharlie lasted about week, right?

(The Telegraph and Argus)

Michael Schaus - In Other News: Castro Runs Out of Prison Cells, Asks Obama to Hand Over Gitmo
Posted: 1/29/2015 12:19:00 PM EST

Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:

The White House refuses to describe the Taliban as a “terrorist” organization… They’re calling them an “armed insurgency”. But that’s okay. After all, Obama isn’t really the leader of the free world. He just plays one on TV. (And he doesn’t play it terribly well, by the way.)

(Breitbart)

Russian lawmakers are getting ready to officially condemn the reunification (that took place 26 years ago) of East and West Germany. Wow… Putin really holds on to a grudge.

(Washington Post)

Castro is demanding that the US return the military base at Guantánamo Bay, fully lift the embargo, and “compensate Cuba for damages” before relations can be fully reestablished. Sadly, this sounds exactly like the type of deal Obama would accept. Maybe, for good measure, we should ask the Russians if they want a new place to park some nuclear missiles.

(Miami Herald)

The graduate center of the City University of New York, has advised staff to avoid using the terms “Mr., Mrs. or Ms.” because they may not be “gender inclusive” enough, and could offend someone. My guess is that everyone will be addressed by the school’s preferred title: Comrade.

(National Review)

An NBC commentator has described American sniper Chris Kyle as a “racist” who went on “killing sprees” in Iraq… I’m going to describe this commentator as “a gutless piece of human debris,” who “spews out hate-filled prejudice” cleverly disguised as political correctness.

(Weasel Zippers)

The Pentagon is warning that China will soon have arms dominance over the United States. Of course, being communists, I’m sure they’ll give some of their arms to underprivileged nations in the area… Like North Korea, for example.

(Free Beacon)

Michael Schaus - In Other News: Such Humility... Obama References Himself 118 Times in 33 Minutes
Posted: 1/28/2015 12:26:00 PM EST

Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:

President Obama missed the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. According to officials, he couldn’t attend a ceremony for the milestone anniversary because he was “in India, on a long-scheduled trip.”… Well, unless the trip was scheduled 71 years ago, this doesn’t seem like much of an excuse.

(Free Beacon)

He did, however, acknowledge the 70th anniversary of Auschwitz with a picture of himself… After all, how will any of his twitter followers know it’s important if it isn’t all about him?

(Weasel Zippers)

President Obama referenced himself a mind-numbing 118 times in 33 short minutes during a recent speech. His teleprompter must really have a crush on him.

(Grabien)

The State Department hosted a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood aligned leaders from Egypt… Sure, the current Egyptian government has officially designated the oppressive and radical group as a terrorist organization; but “outreach” is all a part of our new friendlier war on terror. Next, we’re scheduled to sing karaoke with the Iranians.

(Free Beacon)

The man who crashed a drone at the White House has been identified as a drunk intelligence agent. I assume his job focused on gathering intelligence, and not using it.

(Mediaite)

Republican lawmakers are concerned that Obama’s nominee for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, might not really be any different than Eric Holder. And now that I think about it, I don’t know that I’ve ever actually seen them in the same room together…

(Washington Times)

The Administration has ordered federal agents to identify the immigrants that will not get deported… Um, how about just the legal ones? Wouldn’t that be an easy guideline to follow?

(Fox News)

Michael Schaus - In Other News: Did You Know Cory Booker Invented the iPad?
Posted: 1/27/2015 12:02:00 PM EST

Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:

The White House claims they are opposed to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu speaking before congress because it might impact the upcoming Israeli elections. In completely unrelated news, Obama’s campaign team is in Israel working to get Netanyahu thrown out of office.

(Fox News)

The EU is pushing for new sanctions against Russia because of increased violence in eastern Ukraine. Of course, Vladimir Putin is blaming Ukraine for the recent unrest… Obviously, their country got in the way of Putin’s tanks.

(Bloomberg)

As it turns out, a state-run Russian oil company is deeply connected with an effort to restrict US oil exploration and hydraulic fracturing. I didn’t realize those Russians were such environmentalists.

(Free Beacon)

Salon.com said that men should be forced to take paternity leave. Salon may not be aware of this, but under certain circumstances, grown-ups are often capable of making their own life decisions.

(Weasel Zippers)

Democrat Cory Booker shared a touching story about his 2009 trip to Israel. He explained that he was able to use his iPad to share the message of Martin Luther King Jr. while visiting the holy sites in the Middle East. The story was even more impressive, given that the iPad had not yet been invented.

(NJ)

After major panic, preemptive road closures, storm related curfews, and stern warnings, winter storm Juno only dumped a few inches on New York City. New England, on the other hand, got hit harder than expected. Oh, and it’s about 70 degrees in Denver. So, pass the popcorn while we watch Al Gore sycophants try to blame your SUV for Mother Nature’s bizarre behavior.

(CBS)

The Huffington Post is convinced that the only way to help the middle class, is to “tame” Wall Street with mountains of new regulations… Because (obviously) somebody else making money is somehow holding you back. Right?

(Huffington Post)

Michael Schaus - In Other News: Obama Films Anti-Oil Message from Non-Hybrid Air Force One
Posted: 1/26/2015 12:36:00 PM EST

Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:

President Obama filmed an anti-oil propaganda film from Air Force One. And before you ask: Yes… Air Force One is powered by oil, and not wind or solar power.

(Breitbart)

Union membership has reached its lowest level in 100 years. Now this is what “progress” looks like.

(Daily Signal)

Joe Biden said that “Obamacare has settled it: Healthcare is a right.” And apparently, because it is a “right”, the government can force us to pay for health insurance… I can’t help but notice that the government isn’t forcing me to buy a gun.

(Breitbart)

The Islamists who committed the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris will not be described as “terrorists” by the BBC editorial staff. According to a senior executive, the decision was made because “terrorism” is a “loaded word”… Also, the 19 guys who took down four planes on 9/11 were just uncooperative airline passengers.

(Independent)

On a related note: The BBC is also referring to the enemy combatants killed by sniper Chris Kyle as “victims”… I dunno. Maybe the BBC is trying to break into the ISIS market.

(Breitbart)

The socialists in Greece have decided that they’re already tired of trying to live within their means. The far left party (running on a platform to eliminate austerity) won the recent elections. I guess we’re about to find out if big government spending can fix problems created by too much big government spending.

(NY Post)

Call Mulder and Scully: Scientists have stumbled across some “alien” radio waves originating from deep space.

(Fox News)
