Johnny Carson’s Head Writer: Late Night Comics Protect Obama

Excerpts:

Like their news anchor counterparts, our hosts go gentle into that late night, despite the target-rich environment of this administration. With his pen and phone, our selfie-absorbed president is one whacked uncle away from appointing himself Supreme Leader.

The networks salivate for the precious 18 – 49 age viewer but weirdly ignore the political demo. Gallup’s numbers show that 38 percent of Americans identify as conservatives, 23 percent as liberals, and 34 percent as moderates. In other words, 72 percent of Americans aren’t liberal. Yet network news anchors list to the left.

Luke 4:9-12

  1. And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:
  2. For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:
  3. And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
  4. And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Ukraine Crisis

“We will not go anywhere,” said Mr Klitschko. “This is an island of freedom and we will defend it.”

Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who heads the Fatherland party, appealed to President Yanukovych to “stop the bloodshed and call a truce”.

“We are talking about human lives and the future of the country which could be drowned in blood. Stop, Viktor Yanukovych, stop,” he said.

Hosea Chapter Eleven

HOSEA CHAPTER ELEVEN

 

1 “When Israel was but a child, I loved

Him, and from Egypt I did call my son.

2 But then the more I called them, the more they

 

Departed from me, for they sacrificed

To Baals and they burned their incense to

Pictures. 3 It was I who taught Ephraim

 

To walk; I took them by their arms, and yet

They did not realize that it was I

Who healed them. 4 And with cords of human kindness

 

And ties of love, I did lead them. To them

I was like one who lifts a little child

Up to the cheek, and I bent down to feed

 

Them. 5 Will they not return to Egypt and

Will not Assyria rule over them

Because they won’t repent? 6 A sword will flash

 

Within their cities, and it will devour

False prophets and will end their plans. 7 My people

Have chosen to turn from me. Even though

They call me God Most High, I won’t at all

Exalt them. 8 Ephraim, how can I give

You up? And Israel, how can I hand

You over? How can I treat you like Admah?

How can I make you like Zeboyim? For

My heart is changed in me; all my compassion

 

Is kindled. 9 I won’t carry out my anger,

And I will not again wreck Ephraim.

For I am God, and not a man—I am

 

The Holy One among you. I won’t come

Against their cities; 10 they will follow God,

And he will roar the way a lion does

 

And when he roars, his children will come trembling

Out of the west; 11 they’ll come from Egypt, trembling

Like sparrows, from Assyria they’ll come

 

And flutter like the doves. I’ll settle them

In homes,” says God. 12 With lies has Ephraim

Surrounded me, and Israel has used

Tricks and deceit, while Judah‘s quarrelsome

With God, as to the faithful Holy One.
