Wombat's Monday News Run

A quick romp through the news, as laid out by Wombat-socho in the mostly daily "Live at Five: 12.08.14." Find out what Instapundit is going to quip about before he quips about it.

Thirteen Killed In Failed Yemen Raid: Two hostages killed by Al Qaeda captors - Of course, you probably heard about this already. All we can do is try, and when they're threatening imminent death it's time to move. I hear Al Queda paid a price; 13 dead. You can see the results of their efforts at the Jawa's hut. Warning: Gruesome. Justice Served
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to move

Typhoon Hagupit Hits The Philippines - 21 Dead and counting, 900,000 people had to evacuate their homes. We should grateful we had a relatively uneventful hurricane season for the US.

Ebola Czar Klain Leaving Post In March - Wow, that was fast. Once it's out of the news, who cares?

Protesters Smash Windows, Shut Down Highway In Berkeley - If I didn't have an uncle who lives in Berkeley (we think), I'd be just as happy if they burned it down. Shit in your own nest, suckers.

Emily Deschanel Preggers - Congratulations to a previous Rule 5 winner, even if she had to share it with her sister. Although, I do have a bone to pick with her regarding her portrayal of scientists.

Rolling Stone Admits Problems With UVA Story Were Its Fault - The case of the violent gang rape by a fraternity at UVA is a prime example of how little liberals care for the truth. They're all but insisting that the facts don't matter, it's what they want to say that matters.

Obama Tells BET Audience Despite Grand Jury Verdicts, Things Are Better - But the nation thinks things are worse. Mission Accomplished!

Norks Deny “Righteous” Hack Attack On Sony - If Kim Jung Un told me the sky was blue I'd have it independently verified. That pox on the earth can't go a way fast enough. But to be fair, Sony wouldn't put out a comedy about the assassination of Preznit Obama. The film about the assassination of President Bush won awards.

Amanda Bynes Looks Healthy, Trim In New Twitter Photo - I hope she's on the road to recovery. But these things never go smoothly.

Hefner Responds To Allegations In Wake Of Cosby Lawsuit: “I Would Never Tolerate This Kind Of Behavior”  - Of course, Hugh was willing to pay market rates.

Mexico Says Evidence Proves Missing Students Were Incinerated - Making "The Bridge" look like an understatement. I had a Mexican friend, a fellow graduate student who was very concerned about the direction Mexico was going. He died in a traffic accident in Tijuana.

Loose Endz: Thou Shalt Not Cook Thy Neighbor - I wish I hadn't read this, but she clearly wins Floron of the Year - 2013 contest. White people aren't meant to live in Florida, the sun depletes their folic acid and drives them crazy.

Jammie Wearing Fools: MSNBC 2011 – Delusional Tea Party Could Become Violent; MSNBC 2014 – Arson, Looting “Not Necessarily Violence” - Foolish consistency is the hob-goblin of little minds. I'm still rooting for the post Ferguson violence to burn down the MSNBC studio in New York.

The Lonely Conservative: After Years Of Inflicting Heartburn On All Of Us, Obama Diagnosed With Acid Reflux - Fortunately for me, it has a pretty simple cure.

Weasel Zippers: Obamacare Architect Jonathan Gruber – Abortion Of “Marginal Children” A “Social Good” - I prefer to think of them as voters.

Wombat-socho has the original Rule 5 post "Rule 5 Sunday: Relay Breakdown" ready at The Other McCain.
