Really GOOGLE, this is truly shameful …
As over a billion Christians celebrate Easter and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior … GOOGLE in their infinite wisdom took the opportunity to celebrate the day to honor Cesar Chavez’s birthday. So GOOGLE does not honor Easter with a pic of Jesus or heck, how about even an Easter bunny or basket. Nope, instead they insult Christians everywhere and honor with its ‘Doodle’ search logo art to mark the birth of left-wing labor leader, Cesar Chavez. This is a new low, even for the Left.
The timing is oddly appropriate; as Dennis Prager has written, “You cannot understand the Left if you do not understand that leftism is a religion,” and one with its own sources of mythology. Back in 2006 at Tech Central Station, Lee Harris described French Marxist Georges Sorel (1847-1922), and the concept of the Sorelian Myth:

Just curious … what are exactly the cut backs for Obama due to sequestration, actually doing work for the American people?
President Barack Obama was booed when his mug was displayed on the huge screen at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. during the NCAA Elite 8 game between Syracuse and Marquette. A little more than have the crowd booed while some cheered after they realized the Bracketologist in Chief was being dissed. Rather interesting that Obama was booed in of all places DC. So why so many boos, other than the obvious failed job as president? Maybe because his final 4 picks, No. 1 seeds Louisville and Indiana, No. 2 seed Ohio State and No. 3 seed Florida are in deep trouble except for the obvious pick of Louisville. Indiana and Ohio St have already lost, the Gators are presently losing 25-15 to Michigan. Or Maybe they booed, because if you watch the following VIDEO, Obama seems to put more effort in his NCAA College basketball picks that he does the US budget, job growth, debt reduction or unemployment. Or maybe it is because Obama has closed the White House tours from “We the People” citing Secret Service sequester cutbacks, yet he has no trouble making sure there is enough in the budget for Obama to attend a tournament game, play golf or have his kids go on multiple spring break vacations.
One would have expected a friendlier crowd for the President, but there are still several possible explanations for the boos. Obama and his White House team had supported Georgetown (Syracuse’s rival) in the past, and the President had forecast Indiana (who was eliminated by Syracuse) to win the East Regional and go on to win the national title, for example. Or, perhaps they booed because POTUS had gone to the game with Secret Service agents while the White House remains closed to tours.
It was quite a busy day for Obama as he did none of the work of the American people, NOT! First playing golf with his buds and then attending the NCAA Elite tournament game. What he do later that night, play on-line games with Pelosi and Reid?
Just in case some of you think that the above video is false, Twitter exploded when Obama was booed yesterday. Mark Packer, the Host of College Sports Today on SiriusXM tweeted the following. Also, CBS tweets as well that Obama was met with jeers and cheers.
President Barack Obama Back on the Golf Course … Take First Post Sequestration Round of Golf on Easter Weekend
Neither rain, nor snow, nor high unemployment, nor record number of Americans on food stamps, nor putting brave Americans in harms way of war, nor sequestration will prevent Barack Obama from playing golf.
In yet one more example of sequestration for thee, not for me, President Barack Obama was back on the links playing golf. President Obama went golfing Saturday afternoon with friend and Chicago businessman Marty Nesbitt and White House staffers Michael Brush and Marvin Nicholson. Despite forcing others to sacrifice, forcing some to lose their jobs and be furloughed, Obama is business as usual playing golf. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was recently asked whether President Obama was going to cut back on his lavish vacations and golf outings. Carney dodged the question of course, I guess we know why. The answer is of course no … cut backs or only for others, not for Obama.
President Obama went back to the links Saturday for the first time in a month, in spite of calls by Republicans to stop playing golf due to the government’s automatic budget cuts.
Mr. Obama played his 115th round of golf as president at Joint Base Andrews, a military base in suburban Maryland, taking a motorcade from the White House to the course. It’s the first time he’s played golf since the budget cuts took effect March 1.
The president’s foursome included longtime friend Marty Nesbit, and White House aides Marvin Nicholson and Michael Brush.
In February, Mr. Obama played a round of golf with Tiger Woods at an exclusive resort in Florida, but hasn’t been golfing at Andrews since December.
The White House continues to be closed to tours to America’s children, but the golf courses remain open to Barack Obama.
Scared Monkeys Wishes Everyone a very Happy and Blessed Easter.
Never forget that Easter represents the greatest story of “Hope & Change” ever in history. True hope is divine and comes from above, not from man. As stated in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Without the Crucifixion, there would have never been a Resurrection. And a Resurrection that represents eternal rebirth, hope and change.
On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!
JESUS CHRIST Is Risen Today – Alleluia! – EASTER HYMN
Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia! Earth and heaven in chorus say, Alleluia! Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia! Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!
Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia! Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia! Death in vain forbids him rise, Alleluia! Christ has opened paradise, Alleluia!
Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia! Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia! Once he died our souls to save, Alleluia! Where’s thy victory, boasting grave? Alleluia!
Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia! Following our exalted Head, Alleluia! Made like him, like him we rise, Alleluia! Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!
Hail the Lord of earth and heaven, Alleluia! Praise to thee by both be given, Alleluia! Thee we greet triumphant now, Alleluia! Hail the Resurrection, thou, Alleluia!
King of glory, soul of bliss, Alleluia! Everlasting life is this, Alleluia! Thee to know, thy power to prove, Alleluia! Thus to sing, and thus to love, Alleluia!
Above All – Michael W. Smith
Crucified, laid behind a stone
You lived to die rejected and alone
Like a rose trampled on the ground
You took the fall and thought of me
Michael W. Smith sings in his song, ‘Here I am to Worship’ … “I will never know just how much it cost, to see my sin upon that cross”.
Pope Francis used his first Easter Sunday address to call for peace in the world and to change hatred into love, delivered in Italian from the central balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica.
Dear brothers and sisters in Rome and throughout the world, Happy Easter! Happy Easter!
What a joy it is for me to announce this message: Christ is risen! I would like it to go out to every house and every family, especially where the suffering is greatest, in hospitals, in prisons.
Most of all, I would like it to enter every heart, for it is there that God wants to sow this Good News: Jesus is risen, there is hope for you, you are no longer in the power of sin, of evil! Love has triumphed, mercy has been victorious! The mercy of God always triumphs!
We too, like the women who were Jesus’ disciples, who went to the tomb and found it empty, may wonder what this event means (cf. Lk 24:4). What does it mean that Jesus is risen? It means that the love of God is stronger than evil and death itself; it means that the love of God can transform our lives and let those desert places in our hearts bloom. The love God can do this!

Body of Missing Student Pilot who Fell from Small Plane is Found … Victim Fell 2,500 Feet to His Death During the Flight on Friday in Tennessee
Let this be a lesson whether you are driving a car or a plane … always where your seatbelt.
The body of the unidentified student pilot who fell to their death from a small plane on Friday has been found. According to accounts, the small two-seater training plane, Zodiac 601 experimental aircraft, went into a nose dive when the canopy came off. The unidentified victim was not wearing his seatbelt and fell 2500 feet to his death. Good grief. The single-engine aircraft left Collegedale Municipal Airport just outside Chattanooga, TN between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Friday. The flight path took them over southern Bradley County, a rural area with many farms and few communities. The instructor, who also was not identified, managed to land the plane at the airport while emergency crews scoured the countryside around East Brainerd, TN.
Not actual plane … Zodiac 601 similar to the above
Police on Saturday recovered the body of a student pilot who was not wearing a seat belt during a training flight and tumbled from his small two-seater plane when it went into a nose dive over rural Tennessee.
Reuters reported that the body was found in a tree-line not far from a roadway.
The victim, who has not been identified, fell 2,500 feet to his death during the flight on Friday, WRCB-TV reported.
“The people inside the plane were not wearing seat belts,” Bradley County interim fire chief Troy Spence told WRCB-TV. “So when they lost control of the plane, in an attempt to regain control of the plane, the passenger was ejected.”

In a scandal that has rocked the small coastal New England town of Kennebunk, Maine, Alexis Wright, who had been of using her Zumba fitness studio as a front for prostitution, pleaded guilty to 20 misdemeanor counts. All felony counts against Wright were reduced to misdemeanor.

More than 150 men, and at least one woman, were being investigated for whether they paid for sex at Wright’s Pura Vida Zumba dance studio, and 66 men faced misdemeanor soliciting charges.
Former fitness instructor Alexis Wright, 30, had been accused of working with Mark Strong Sr. to operate a brothel. She was also charged with 106 counts of prostitution, violation of privacy, tax evasion and welfare fraud in a scandal that rocked the town of Kennebunk, Maine.
The plea deal included reducing the three tax-related felonies to misdemeanors, according to the Portland Press Herald.
Wright could face up to 10 months in jail and her sentencing hearing is scheduled for May 31. She will be free on bail until then.
Alexis Wright is due to be sentenced May 31. Prosecutors are set to ask for a sentence of 10 months. 10 MONTHS!!! Are you kidding me, this is how they prosecute prostitution is Maine? I think you get more jail time for stealing lobsters.
Do You Live in One of the 10 Freest States in the United States or One of the Least … North Dakota Named the Most Free
“Where Liberty Dwells, there is My Country” – Benjamin Franklin
The Blaze announces the 10 freest states and the 10 least … which one doe you live in? In order to calculate these scores, they weight public policies according to the estimated costs that government restrictions on freedom impose on their victims. The fill report can be read here, at “Freedom in the 50 States”. Many of the most free states are so because of low taxation and fiscal policy. North Dakota was named the most free, New York state comes in dead last.
- North Dakota: VIDEO
- South Dakota – VIDEO
- Tennessee – VIDEO
- New Hampshire – VIDEO
North Dakota is the freest state in the U.S., followed closely by South Dakota, Tennessee, New Hampshire, and Oklahoma, according to the Mercatus Center at George Mason University’s third annual “Freedom in the 50 States.”
The 223-page report “scores all 50 states on their overall respect for individual freedom, and also on their respect for three dimensions of freedom considered separately: fiscal policy, regulatory policy, and personal freedom,” the study explains. Surprisingly, Texas did not make the top 10 and was ranked the 14th most free state.
The bottom 10 are 41. Mississippi, 42. West Virginia, 43. Vermont, 44. Maryland, 45. Illinois, 46. Rhode Island, 47. Hawaii, 48. New Jersey, 49. California and 50. New York.
Ex-Schools Chief Beverly L. Hall in Atlanta, GA Indicted in Testing Scandal … Charged with Racketeering, Theft, Influencing Witnesses, Conspiracy & Making False Statements.
OBAMA WHITE HOUSE PRAISED INDICTED FORMER ATLANTA SCHOOL ADMINISTARTOR WHO CHEATED HER WAY TO FAME … CRIMINAL, SIMPLY CRIMINAL.
Dr. Beverly L. Hall, A former district school superintendent whose test scores brought her fame in 2009 as the American Association of School Administrators named her superintendent of the year. Barack Obama’s Secretary of Education Arne Duncan even hosted her at the White House. However, it appears to have been all a fabricated lie. Water seeks it’s own level, doesn’t it? Dr. Beverly L. Hall was indictedin a test cheating scandal and charged with racketeering, theft, influencing witnesses, conspiracy and making false statements. Prosecutors have recommended a $7.5 million bond for Dr. Hall and she could face up to 45 years in prison. Sadly, this is how these public school educators thought they were helping students, by cheating. As stated at NRO, the Atlanta schools chief spearheaded a vast criminal conspiracy among administrators and teachers to cheat on standardized tests to artificially boost the scores of their pupils. How could anyone thin k this was beneficial? Well. it would not be for the students, but it would be for those administrators and teachers that were rewarded on merit pay for test scores. Beverly L. Hall ”earned more than $500,000 in performance bonuses while superintendent.” However, the school lost $750,000 in state and federal aid that could have been used to help the students who were failing and reading at substandard levels. Instead, the cheating skewed the results.
Dr. Hall, who retired in 2011, was charged with racketeering, theft, influencing witnesses, conspiracy and making false statements. Prosecutors recommended a $7.5 million bond for her; she could face up to 45 years in prison.
During the decade she led the district of 52,000 children, many of them poor and African-American, Atlanta students often outperformed wealthier suburban districts on state tests.
Those test scores brought her fame — in 2009, the American Association of School Administrators named her superintendent of the year and Arne Duncan, the secretary of education, hosted her at the White House.
And fortune — she earned more than $500,000 in performance bonuses while superintendent.
On Friday, prosecutors essentially said it really was too good to be true. Dr. Hall and the 34 teachers, principals and administrators “conspired to either cheat, conceal cheating or retaliate against whistle-blowers in an effort to bolster C.R.C.T. scores for the benefit of financial rewards associated with high test scores,” the indictment said, referring to the state’s Criterion-Referenced Competency Test.
Reached late Friday, Richard Deane, Dr. Hall’s lawyer, said they were digesting the indictment and making arrangements for bond. “We’re pretty busy,” he said.
This is just another case of if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Once again we have public school educators and administrators screwing over America’s youth. What message does this send, the only way you can succeed is to cheat? It is bad enough that much of our public school education system can be deemed a crime against children, but this brings it to new levels.
BET Founder Bob Johnson Says “This Country Would Never Tolerate White Unemployment at 14 or 15 Percent” … Blacks Growing Restless With Obama’s Failed Policies
BARACK OBAMA HAS BEEN AN EPIC FAILURE FOR THE BLACK COMMUNITY … BLACK AMERICA, HOW’S THAT HOPEY-CHANGEY STUFF WORKING OUT FOR YOU?
Blacks should wonder why with the first black president, blacks are even more worse off than before … Can they handle the truth? Have they just figured out that Barack Obama has been an complete an epic failure as president? Obama has promised job growth and none nothing but make matters worse, increase the federal debt and increase costs.
As reported by CNS News, Black Entertainment Television (BET) founder Bob Johnson said earlier this week .at the National Press Club that the United States would “never tolerate white unemployment at 14 or 15%”. He went on to say that the unemployment for the black community has been double that of white Americans for over 50 years. Obviously Obama has no issue with the high black unemployment rate as he has made matters worse during his regime. Its also many black leaders are finally making their voices heard after 4 years of silence during Obama’s first term. As per Town Hall, political leaders from the Congressional Black Caucus to the NAACP have begun to open fire on the White House. To be perfectly honest, I am not sure why anyone would tolerate the present national average of unemployment, no matter what one’s skin color is. Obama’s economic policies have been a disaster for all people of any color.
This country would never tolerate white unemployment at 14 and 15 percent. No one would ever stay in office at 14 or 15 percent unemployment in this nation, but we’ve had that double unemployment for over 50 years,” Johnson said while speaking at the National Press Club about the gap between whites and blacks in America.
“The national average is 7.7 percent, and African-American unemployment is 13.8 percent. To be honest, it’s probably greater than that when you count the number of African-Americans who have simply given up on finding employment,” said Johnson, who is also founder and chairman of The RLJ Companies.
However, does Bob Johnson want the truth to his questions, or just more excuses that have been the cause that have kept black unemployment percentages high?
Under President Barack Obama, unemployment for blacks has been abysmal. Males, females and teens have all seen their unemployment numbers skyrocket under Obama. But I thought he cared about them? How does a segment of the population support a president with 95% of the vote and still get nothing in return. And by getting something I do not mean for food stamps, unemployment and Obama phones.
As reported at Vibe, Dr. Benjamin Carson criticizes President Obama on Black unemployment, “If President Obama wants to be a hero in the African-American community, he should do something to alleviate the “abominable” Black unemployment rate in America”.
“I think the best thing that he (President Obama) can possibly do that will help minorities is to enact policies that allow for growth of the economy,” said Carson. “Because when you look at the employment rate for instance in the African American community, it’s abominable. And the policies that have been enacted have only made it worse. They have not made it better. So if he really wanted to be a hero in that community, let’s start doing some things that make sense economically and get the money flowing.”
Barack Obama’s failed job policies are facing bitter criticism from African-American leaders who say black unemployment has grown worse under his presidency.
After four years of holding their tongues and remaining quiet in the face of sharply rising black unemployment and record poverty, political leaders from the Congressional Black Caucus to the NAACP have begun to open fire on the White House.
Unemployment for both women and African-Americans is higher today than it was when President Barack Obama first took office in 2009, according to federal government data.
Despite an economy that has technically been in recovery since June of 2009, many economic indicators are the same or worse than when President Obama gave his first address to a Joint Session of Congress in February 2009.
“We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before,” Obama said in that speech.
However, employment for African-Americans and women has not recovered and, in fact, is worse today than it was when Obama said those words.
MAKING PEOPLE DEPENDENT UPON GOVERNMENT TO GET THEIR VOTE WILL NEVER FIX THE PROBLEM.
