Michael Schaus - In Other News: French Satirists Have More Backbone than American Journalists
Posted: 1/7/2015 12:23:00 PM EST

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

The White House was reluctant to call the mass shooting in Paris a “terrorist” attack… I’m surprised they aren’t telling us this all started from a spontaneous protest over some obscure YouTube movie.

(Weekly Standard)

Howard Dean says we shouldn’t call the terrorists (who shot and killed a dozen people in Paris for making fun of the Prophet Mohammed) “Muslim” terrorists because Islam is a very peaceful religion, or something…

(Mediaite)

The New York Daily News has blurred out the image of Mohammed from the cover of the French humor magazine, Charlie Hebdo. Let me make this perfectly clear: A bunch of French satirists have more backbone than American journalists.

(Weasel Zippers)

A strong geomagnetic “storm” in space is currently hitting planet Earth. It’s unclear at this point how it could possibly be related to global warming, or George W Bush; but I’m sure some government-funded scientist is working it out as we speak.

(My Fox NY)

According to TIME, waiting in lines to go to the bathroom is sexist. (No… I’m not making this up.) It must be really tough stumbling through life as a perpetually offended liberal.

(Time)

Ezra Klein has predicted that, assuming economic conditions continue their current trajectory, Hillary Clinton will win 42 states in 2016. He knows this because his unicorn told him.

Michael Schaus - In Other News: Huffington Post Calls Self Defense "Laughable" Reason for Owning Guns
Posted: 1/6/2015 12:04:00 PM EST

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

Charlie Rangel explained that seeing dead soldiers in Korea never bothered him – until he saw a dead black soldier. Don’t we have a word for people who are this obsessed with judging others by the color of their skin, rather than the content of their character? (Oh, that’s right: “Democrat.” I forgot.)

(Truth Revolt)

Shockingly, Cuba isn’t holding up its end of the bargain. The Soviet wannabes in the Caribbean still haven’t released 53 prisoners as part of Obama’s “normalization” plan with the Castro brothers… It’s weird, given how traditionally dependable and trustworthy commies tend to be.

(Free Beacon)

The FBI says it doesn’t need a warrant to spy on someone’s cell phone in public places… Also, the Fourth Amendment is mostly for decorative purposes.

(ARS Technica)

The Huffington Post ran a piece claiming the Constitution was a weak “excuse” for owning a gun, and “self-defense” was simply “laughable”… Right. Self-defense is a “laughable” argument for owning a gun. That’s why all cops and soldiers carry rape whistles instead.

(Breitbart)

Global warming update: It is officially too cold for ski resorts to stay open in Duluth. So, if you still believe Al Gore’s theory about manbearpig, I think it’s pretty clear what has to be done: Go buy an SUV, and turn on all the lights in your home. We need to warm things up a little.

(Star Tribune)

As the GOP takes control of the Senate and House this week, President Obama has no plans to meet with GOP leaders. In fact, he’s leaving town to promote his plans for executive action in 2015… And just a reminder: “Bipartisanship” means doing everything the way Obama wants it done.

(Washington Times)

Michael Schaus - In Other News: John Boehner May Need a Tissue
Posted: 1/5/2015 12:05:00 PM EST

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

Shipping containers are being converted into homes for residents of Detroit. I can only assume the new occupants are hoping they get shipped somewhere new overnight.

(My Fox NY)

Conservatives are getting ready to make John Boehner cry. The vote for US Speaker of the House is not, by any means, a sure thing for Boehner who is facing a growing conservative mutiny… I’m planning on sending him a carton of Camel non-filters if he’ll just withdraw his name from the race.

(Breitbart)

Australia’s Prime Minister made a surprise trip to Iraq to discuss with authorities how his country can aid in the fight against ISIS… Meanwhile, Obama is returning from Hawaii after successfully disrupting a wedding on a golf course.

(KWQC)

Audi has a new autonomous A7 concept car that drove itself from San Francisco to Las Vegas. Any vehicle that drives me automatically to Las Vegas is pretty-much a “must have” item.

(Fox News)

Nancy Pelosi is promising her twitter followers (affectionately called “twits”) that Democrats will push for a bill that promises the American people “bigger paychecks”… How about jobs? Can we just start with a little job creation first?

(Weasel Zippers)

Anti-police protestors are now disrupting people’s brunch in an attempt to raise awareness for their cause. Because nothing helps promote peace and equality quite like harassing someone while they try to enjoy their mimosa and Denver omelet.

(Daily Mail)

Michael Schaus - In Other News: Watch Out for those Militant Buddhists!
Posted: 12/30/2014 11:24:00 AM EST

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

Radical leftists are on the verge of gaining power in Greece… Because a little socialist central planning is exactly what is needed to fix a mountain of debt and crippling entitlement obligations created by the last group of socialist central planners.

(The Guardian)

The Pope is urging the UN to tackle global warming. The Guardian newspaper says his actions will upset “deniers” in the US… Deniers? Deniers of Christ, our lord and savior, or deniers of Al Gore’s scandal-plagued hoax known as global cooling global warming climate change manbearpig?

(The Guardian)

The Council on American Islamic Relations is warning the world about the dangers of militant Buddhists. I’ll double check the numbers, but I don’t really remember hearing a lot about Buddhist monks launching lone-wolf meditation attacks on high-value targets.

(Weasel Zippers)

The government has a new retirement savings plan for people who feel like trusting the government with their cash. The “ObamaFund” (not an official term) will have exactly one investment option: US Debt. I don’t see what could possibly go wrong.

(Wall Street Journal)

President Obama continues to insist that the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq is not Islamic… Naturally, this is causing a little frustration among the people charged with combating the “non-Islamic” ideology of the Islamic State. (Oh, and you can keep your religion if you like your religion.)

(Daily Caller)

Michael Schaus - In Other News: The Queen's Royal Guards Ask French for Tips on How to Retreat
Posted: 12/29/2014 11:34:00 AM EST

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

The Queen’s royal guards have been pulled from their high-profile posts around the palace amid fears that lone-wolf terrorists might target them. Maybe we should just give them some ammunition for those cute little assault rifles instead, and let the terrorists try their luck.

(Daily Mail)

President Obama tried to brag over “isolating” Iran on the world stage… Of course I thought isolation was a bad thing. Isn’t that why we’re normalizing relations with Cuba?

(Weekly Standard)

Jeb Bush topped the 2016 GOP field by ten points in a recent poll. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie came in second place. The rest of the respondents decided they preferred an actual Republican, rather than someone who simply plays one on TV.

(Washington Times)

Bill de Blasio was over two hours late to the wake of an NYPD officer who was assassinated by a radical activist… The reason why the NYPD feels disrespected by the New York City mayor remains a complete and total mystery.

(Breitbart)

A group of Palestinians have created a “how to” video for “stabbing Jews”. The IDF will likely respond with a lightly publicized demonstration on the appropriate application of defensive firepower.

(Jewish Press)

North Korean officials publicly called President Obama a “monkey”. Poor North Korea will now have to deal with the wrath of MSNBC and Al Sharpton.

(Daily Caller)

Michael Schaus - In Other News: US Offers Reward for Capture of Terrorist We Released from Gitmo
Posted: 12/23/2014 12:35:00 PM EST

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

Oops… The US is offering a multi-million dollar reward for the capture of a terrorist that we let out of Gitmo. Maybe we should remove the prison’s revolving door sometime soon?

(Judicial Watch)

Just a little bit of perspective for you: The amount of EPA regulations that Obama has added to the Federal Register is roughly 43 times larger than the Bible… In other words, the creator of the universe is literally less demanding than the liberal in the White House.

(CNS News)

More information is being released on the IRS harassment of conservative groups, tea party groups, and other groups that one IRS adviser identified as “icky”… Yes, a top IRS adviser used the term “icky” to describe conservatives. Five year olds are apparently running the nation.

(Daily Caller)

MSNBC host Ed Schultz said Obama’s action on Cuba was just like Reagan’s “Tear down this wall” moment. I mean, Reagan was forcefully demanding an end to the oppressive and totalitarian Soviet system. Obama, on the other hand, is capitulating to communists… But yeah, other than that, I guess this is exactly the same thing.

(Washington Examiner)

Oh, by the way: Those nice Castro brothers are really happy to have normalized relations with the United States. But they still don’t feel like turning over cop-killing fugitives who fled America in previous decades. I mean, that would be too similar to “cooperation” for a commie.

(Tulsa World)

Michael Schaus - In Other News: North Korea Threatens to Hack US if We Don't Acknowledge Their Innocence in Hack Attacks
Posted: 12/22/2014 12:54:00 PM EST

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

President Obama is going to improve race relations through executive action. And if you think this is an absurd idea, you’re clearly a racist.

(Fox News)

Merry Christmas: The Federal Government is going to automatically pick a coverage plan, and reenroll people who have failed to renew their Obamacare health coverage. But don’t worry… I’m sure they will do a great job picking your coverage. That stellar $600 million website proves that the government has a penchant for spending your money.

(Washington Times)

Teachers claim that a recent student protest, in support of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, was entirely directed by the student body. The eight year old kids of Alma Del Mar’s second grade class are apparently a very socially aware group of youngsters.

(Breitbart)

The FDA is taking on the important issues in order to keep your family safe this Christmas. The agency is issuing guidance on how to regulate popular Star Wars toys, like light sabers. Given that the toys are neither a food, nor a drug, it seems pretty obvious that the agency is overstaffed and underworked.

(Free Beacon)

A court in Buenos Aires has declared that an orangutan held in captivity is being denied its fundamental “human right” to freedom… I assume the court was worried that if we’re allowed to keep monkeys in cages, we might soon do the same to lawyers and judges.

(Yahoo News)

North Korea is insisting they had nothing to do with the cyber-attacks on Sony Entertainment. In fact, they are now threatening to hack other US systems if we don’t acknowledge their innocence. I think there’s a chubby little dictator somewhere that needs to brush up on his public relations.

(Associated Press)

Michael Schaus - In Other News: Real Liberals Want to Ban Fake Guns
Posted: 12/19/2014 12:58:00 PM EST

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

The State Department is excited because our Nuclear stockpile is down 85 percent… I don’t think these people “get it”. It’s not our nukes that are the problem. (Cough*NorthKorea*Cough)

(Weekly Standard)

The White House is searching for an adequate response to North Korea’s cyber-attack on Sony Entertainment. I guess releasing a lowbrow comedy about killing Kim Jong Un is probably a non-starter, right?

(Breitbart)

A Federal Court has ruled that the “mental health gun ban” rule is unconstitutional. This means Democrats and Progressives can go back to owning guns anytime they like.

(Breitbart)

New York’s Attorney General wants to put a ban on fake guns. Only a liberal would think that outlawing toy guns will somehow cut back on real crime.

(Fox Business)

Harvard has ripped the “Soda Stream” label off all their water machines, because they fear that the Israeli owned company may inadvertently offend Palestinian students. Apparently Palestinian intolerance for anything peripherally related to Israel is part of an Ivy League education nowadays.

(Daily Caller)

Michael Schaus - In Other News: Obama is Jimmy Carter’s New Hero
Posted: 12/18/2014 3:14:00 PM EST

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

Obama has sent hundreds of troops to Anbar province in Iraq… I almost feel like we did this once before. Wouldn’t it have been easier if we had never left the area in the first place?

(Stripes)

Former President Jimmy Carter is proud of Obama for his plan to “normalize” relations with Cuba. Every day Obama is in office, Jimmy Carter looks a little less incompetent. I’m sure he’s thrilled.

(Breitbart)

Remember how liberals always told us that our “war on terror” just made the Middle East hate us? Well, apparently Iraq’s Kurdish population absolutelyloves America. As it turns out, our War on Terror really only irritated the terrorist. And, I think that was kinda the point.

(Fox News)

The US is warning Putin that placing nukes in Crimea will “not be tolerated”… I guess he should brace himself for a strongly worded letter, or a “red line” drawn in washable Crayola marker.

(Free Beacon)

A philosophy professor made it official policy in her class that students were not allowed to defend traditional marriage. When someone had the audacity to criticize this professor’s policy, they were promptly barred from campus for being “intolerant”. I really don’t think that word means what liberals think it means.

(Daily Caller)

Bots now outnumber human beings on the world-wide interwebs. It’s only a matter of time until they become sentient and start taking things over.

Michael Schaus - In Other News: New Captain America Will be Black; Racist Liberals Suddenly Become Fans
Posted: 12/17/2014 1:25:00 PM EST

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

Obama is praising the #Illridewithyou twitter campaign that aims to curb Islamophobia on public transportation. “I’ll ride with you” is also a common phrase among Islamic women because they’re not allowed to obtain a driver’s license.

(The Hill)

The Obama Administration is now looking to normalize relations with the communist nation of Cuba. Just picture it: A cigar-smoke filled back room in Cuba with a bunch of commies making empty promises… Cuban officials will also be there.

(Fox News)

George Washington University students signed a petition encouraging Barack Obama to deport one American Citizen for each illegal immigrant that receives amnesty. Naturally, they mostly wanted to deport Tea Party members. (I’m not sure where they would send them… Maybe Texas?)

(Campus Reform)

The guy now in charge of Immigration and Customs Enforcement says that citizenship is a “right” for illegal immigrants. I assume the idea of building a wall on our southern border has been replaced with plans to lay down some red carpet.

(Breitbart)

The new Captain America is now black. Superman is no longer a US citizen. Apparently Thor is now a woman, Spider-Man is part-Puerto Rican and Ms. Marvel is Muslim. Why? Because being “tolerant” and “multicultural” means you sometimes have to change history a little to better fit your narrative.
