Late Night: Come Forth and Speak to Me

Love rescue me, come forth and speak to me, raise me up, and don’t let me fall.

There have been nine congressional hearings on the Benghazi controversy – with more to come – but almost no one in Congress dares put the spotlight on the unfolding scandal surrounding the Guantanamo Bay prison where most of the remaining 166 inmates have opted to “escape” from indefinite detention via the only way open to them, by starving themselves to death.

On May 2, 2013, at a National Day of Prayer service, the current occupant of the White House didn’t mention those persecuted prisoners, he was too busy reminding God that Americans are very good at praying for each other . . .

Prayer brings communities together and can be a wellspring of strength and support. In the aftermath of senseless acts of violence, the prayers of countless Americans signal to grieving families and a suffering community that they are not alone

How many Americans have prayed for the victims of 12 years of senseless persecution, locked in cages in Guantanamo? God must be very proud of us. We’ve been a shining beacon of piety and humility for all the world to see for lo these many years. Our conservatives are especially devout and humble, they love our enemies and have taught the rest of us how to turn the other cheek. When the evildoers attacked us on September the 11th, we heeded the sacred wisdom of our conservative friends and neighbors and immediately forgave every one of those evildoing evildoers who hate us for our freedoms.

And now, though we walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Benghazi, we will fear no evil, for the Scribes of Ailes are keeping us fully informed about it all, they have not allowed themselves to be distracted by trivial developments elsewhere:

While there has been endless attention paid to how the Benghazi talking points were drafted for use on Sunday talk shows last September, the American people have been spared high-profile testimony about how 86 of the remaining 166 prisoners at Guantanamo were cleared for release more than three years ago,

After lengthy prayer and reflection, America’s political and military leaders have found the perfect Christian solution to this dilemma . . .

Most of these 86 who are now on a prolonged hunger strike are being force-fed against their will, a notoriously painful, degrading and even illegal practice. Two weeks ago, 40 additional military medical personnel were sent to Guantanamo to assist with the force-feedings.

The Commander-in-Chief appreciates the guidance and assistance our heroic military personnel are providing for the caged prisoners of Guantanamo and has some pious advice for us . . .

Let us pray for the safety of our brave men and women in uniform and their families who serve and sacrifice for our country.

I don’t think God listens to the prayers of hypocrites, Barack. In his eyes, you’re a man without a name in a palace of shame.

We’re almost as bad, in this nation of shame we keep electing and reelecting corrupt two-party-system politicians who abuse power, obstruct justice, and call it public service. With our own hands, we’ve locked ourselves into their prison of lies and have thrown away the key.

The Star Spangled Banner has too much blood on it, it should never be sung again, we need a new national anthem . . .
