Leno: ‘Now That Tebow’s Associated With the Word "Patriot" He’s Being Audited by the IRS’ By Noel Sheppard Created 06/12/2013 - 9:36am

Jay Leno continued his humorous attacks on Barack Obama Tuesday.

During a series of opening monologue jokes about the various scandals plaguing the White House, the NBC Tonight Show host said of quarterback Tim Tebow, “Now that he's associated with the word 'Patriot' he's being audited by the IRS” (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):

JAY LENO: Some exciting news from the world of sports. Listen to this. It seems Tim Tebow has signed with the New England Patriots. How about that? Yeah. [Cheers and applause] Apparently, Tebow sat down and told Bill Belichick about his friend, Jesus, and Belichick told Tim about his friend, Satan, and they came to an agreement. They came to an agreement. [Applause]

Do you know about that, you know something? Nobody knew about this. This was a top secret deal. Nobody had any idea. The only people who knew were Bill Belichick, Tim Tebow, and of course the NSA because they were, you know, listening in. Sothey were the only ones.

So the good news, Tim Tebow got a job with the Patriots. The bad news: now that he's associated with the wold "Patriot" he's being audited by the IRS. Yeah, yeah, so, little tricky. Tightrope.

Sad that many will learn of the Obama scandals only from Leno rather than the MSM which ignores them.

This is why Jon Stewart took the summer off. He’d be forced to try and keep up with Jay on the Obama-zinging.
His heart just was not in it.

"Both Leno and talkradio."

But I dont' think the low-information crowd listens to talk radio. They do watch late night talkshows so Leno now may be their only source for what Obama is doing.

It’s becoming more and more blatant.

The government is of the spirit of the anti-Christ.

The Guardian is probably even less popular with the LIV’s than conservative talk radio.

Well what Jay Leno has done is in the tradition going all the way back to the early days of the “Tonight Show” with Jack Parr and Johnny Carlson when they lampooned the President.

“Mock and ridicule. Our strongest weapon. Next to, the facts.”

I suppose. But Rush has used parody and mocked Dems and liberals for who knows how long, yet it seems to have little effect. I’ve always wondered why a J. Leno or Letterman slap in the face seems to have more impact than when Rush does it.

Strange to me because Rush’s ridicule is truly comical and really drives home the point of how ludicrous the left is.

Yeah. Too bad it took Leno nearly that long to finally lampoon TIC (Tyrant In Chief).

Years ago a young pastor at my church tried out for the Patriots. One night a coach came in and found him reading his Bible in bed. The coach was immediately concerned about the pastor’s mental health. It seems a young man reading his Bible is a cause for concern in Boston. I will be praying for Tebow, he is going to be subject to a lot of ridicule in Boston.

But it took him 4 years to start. Oh well, better late than never I suppose.

His 4+ years of support for the Fraud isn’t bringing any love for him to me now.

It's simple really.

Rush speaks to an informed audience who generally agree with his position. Leno and Letterman speak to the low-information voters who can't generally be bothered to pay attention.

Jay has been liberated. He is now free of his masters and no longer has to please them. So he can say whatever he wants. All the others who have to grovel for a new contract will toe the party line.

That's pretty simple, really. Rush is seen as the "enemy" by all leftwingers. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that leftwingers see Rush as the Devil. Therefore, they automatically dismiss anything he says, if they are exposed to what he says at all. However, Leno and Letterman and the like are seen as neutral, or even friendly to the leftwingers. TV is the window to the world for most dumbed down leftwing idiots. So when someone like Leno says it, well, it must be true!

Boston - that place where patriots spoke out on behalf of liberty? That Boston? Sounds like he has landed in a place once known for outspoken "patriots"?

From this web site, minds who "need to know" may find such quotations as the following:


"When designs are form'd to raze the very foundation of a free government, whose few who are to erect their grandeur and fortunes upon the general ruin, will employ every art to sooth the devoted people into a state of indolence, inattention and security, which is forever the fore-runner of slavery." - Article signed "Candidus," in Boston Gazette, December 9, 1771

"If the public are bound to yield obedience to laws to which they cannot give their approbation, they are slaves to those who make such laws and enforce them." - As Candidus in the Boston Gazette, January 20, 1772

Samuel Adams Statue - Faneuil Hall
Samuel Adams Statue
Faneuil Hall - Boston
"Among the natural rights of the Colonists are these: First, a right to life; Secondly, to liberty; Thirdly, to property; together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can. These are evident branches of, rather than deductions from, the duty of self-preservation, commonly called the first law of nature." - The Rights of the Colonists, November 20, 1772

"All men have a right to remain in a state of nature as long as they please; and in case of intolerable oppression, civil or religious, to leave the society they belong to, and enter into another." - The Rights of the Colonists, November 20, 1772

"The right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave... These may be best understood by reading and carefully studying the institutes of the great Law Giver and Head of the Christian Church, which are to be found clearly written and promulgated in the New Testament." - The Rights of the Colonists, November 20, 1772

"In regard to religion, mutual toleration in the different professions thereof is what all good and candid minds in all ages have ever practised, and, both by precept and example, inculcated on mankind." - The Rights of the Colonists, November 20, 1772


"The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on Earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but only to have the law of nature for his rule." - The Rights of the Colonists, November 20, 1772

"It is the greatest absurdity to suppose it in the power of one, or any number of men, at the entering into society, to renounce their essential natural rights, or the means of preserving those rights; when the grand end of civil government, from the very nature of its institution, is for the support, protection, and defence of those very rights; the principal of which, as is before observed, are Life, Liberty, and Property. If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation. The right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave." - The Rights of the Colonists, November 20, 1772

"The Opinion of others I very little regard, & have a thorough Contempt for all men, be their Names Characters & Stations what they may, who appear to be the irreclaimable Enemies of Religion & Liberty." - Letter to William Checkley, December 14, 1772

"Christian men, who had come together for solemn deliberation in the hour of their extremity, to say there was so wide a difference in their religious belief that they could not, as one man, bow the knee in prayer to the Almighty, whose advice and assistance they hoped to obtain." - Proposal to open Continental Congress with prayer, September 6, 1774

"What a glorious morning this is!" - Comment to John Hancock at the Battle of Lexington, April 19, 1775

"He who is void of virtuous Attachments in private Life, is, or very soon will be void of all Regard for his Country. There is seldom an Instance of a Man guilty of betraying his Country, who had not before lost the Feeling of moral Obligations in his private Connections." - Letter to James Warren, November 4, 1775

"Since private and publick Vices, are in Reality, though not always apparently, so nearly connected, of how much Importance, how necessary is it, that the utmost Pains be taken by the Publick, to have the Principles of Virtue early inculcated on the Minds even of children, and the moral Sense kept alive, and that the wise institutions of our Ancestors for these great Purposes be encouraged by the Government. For no people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffusd and Virtue is preservd. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauchd in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders." - Letter to James Warren, November 4, 1775

My gym coach in high-school played college ball and was cut by the Boston Patriots in their inaugural 1960 training camp.

He used to have a bumper sticker on the wall down that little cubbyhole where the gym teachers drank coffee on their breaks.

“Jesus is Coming Back Again. And Boy, Is He P*ssed!”

They say that when Johnny Carson turned on Nixon he was finished. I'm not sure it works that way with a Democrat who plays the race card.

He was already on Obemba’s ‘enemies/terrorist list’ because of his Christian beliefs. Does he now get listed twice on the ‘enemies/terrorists list’?

That was a long time ago, when it was inhabited by Anglo-Saxon descendants of the Magna Carta. Since then, it has become inhabited by Irish and Italian immigrants. Nothing against them, but they don’t have the same traditions of liberty.
