SCARED MONKEYS WOULD LIKE TO WISH ALL MOMS A VERY SPECIAL HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY
A special Mother’s Day wish to all those mom’s of missing children and one’s who have been victims of crime. God Bless you all. Also, a special Mother’s Day wish to the mom’s of our military soldiers … Thank you for the sons and daughters you raised and for your sacrifice. To all the moms, all we can say is THANK YOU!!!
My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her. – George Washington
All I am, or can be, I owe to my angel mother. – Abraham Lincoln
There never was a woman like her. She was gentle as a dove and brave as a lioness … The memory of my mother and her teachings were, after all, the only capital I had to start life with, and on that capital I have made my way. – Andrew Jackson
When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” (27) Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home. John 19:26-27
A Mother’s Song
I wrap you in my arms and whisper this advice
Be strong, be kind, be patient and in time
You’ll find out my son what true Love is all about
Be faithful and be true, show love in all you do
Then you’ll know just how you make your mother proud …
One Heartbeat At A Time – Steven Curtis Chapman
You, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time
Making history with every touch and every smile
Oh, you, you may not see it now
But I believe that time will tell
How you, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time
Happy Mothers Day Mom, I Miss You so much and Thank You for all that you did …
Barack Hussein Obama Takes Jab at Christians in Easter Prayer Breakfast as Obama Casts a Stone and Condemns ‘Less-than-loving Christians’
EVEN ON THE HOLY DAY OF EASTER, THIS CLOWN HAS TO MAKE A MOCKERY OF IT AND TAKE A SHOT AT CHRISTIANS …
Barack Hussein Obama can’t find it in himself to call out radical Islam as they slaughter, behead and burn to death innocent Christians … but he has no problem at bashing Christians. But what else should we expect from a Muslim raised individual who developed his religious teaching in Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Black Liberation theology church?
“On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love,” Mr. Obama said toward the end of his speech. “And I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.”
“But that’s a topic for another day,” the president said, receiving laughter and applause.
What a sick, pathetic, little man. This is what a community agitator does and frankly America, you are to blame for being so clueless, so apathetic and so uninformed to elect this sorry excuse of a man.
MAY EVERYONE HAVE A HAPPY AND BLESSED EASTER …
He is risen, truly, He is risen. Easter represents the true meaning of hope eternal and the rebirth of our Lord Jesus Christ as he died and rose again. As you have your Easter egg hunts, open your Easter baskets and enjoy Easter dinner, please remember that the resurrection of our Lord provides us with eternal hope and rebirth. 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.” And with the crucifixion of Jesus, we are provided with his resurrection … Christ the Lord is Risen.

“As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. ”Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’ ”
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
5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed.
6 But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. 7 But go, tell His disciples—and Peter—that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you.”
8 So they went out quickly[a] and fled from the tomb, for they trembled and were amazed. And they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
Mary Magdalene Sees the Risen Lord
9 Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons. 10 She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. 11 And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe.
Jesus Appears to Two Disciples.
12 After that, He appeared in another form to two of them as they walked and went into the country. 13 And they went and told it to the rest, but they did not believe them either.
14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they[b] will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
19 So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.
This has become one of my favorite Easter songs, enjoy … Amazing love, I know its true, It’s my joy to honor You.
Amazing Love – the Newsboys
I’m forgiven cause You were forsaken
I’m accepted, You were condemned
I am alive and well, Your spirit is within me
‘Cause You died and rose again
Amazing love, how can it be?
That You, my King would die for me?
Amazing love, I know its true
It’s my joy to honor You
In all I do, I honor You
Here I am to Worship – Michael W. Smith
I’ll never know how much it cost to see my sin upon that cross.
I’ll never know how much it cost to see my sin upon that cross.
And I’ll never know how much it cost to see my sin upon that cross.
No I’ll never know how much it cost to se my sin upon that cross.
Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that you’re my God,
You’re altogether lovely,
Altogether wonderful to me.
So Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that you’re my God,
MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry at Cornell University … I Hope Trayvon Martin ‘Whooped the Shit Out of George Zimmerman’
HOW DOES THIS INDIVIDUAL STILL HAVE A JOB WITH NBC?
On February 23, 2015 MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry spoke at Cornell University during an MLK Commemoration speech said the following, “I hope he whooped the shit out of George Zimmerman” during the fatal confrontation that led to Martin’s death in 2012. Seriously? I am not sure who we should be more embarrassed for, Cornell University or the memory of Martin Luther King Jr.
Let me understand this, you brought an individual to speak at an event to that honors the memory of MLK Jr, a man that preached non-violent change, and your guest speaker stated that she hoped Trayvon Martin whooped the shit out of George Zimmerman. REALLY? Seriously, how does Cornell University chose this clown from MSLSD to speak during the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Lecture? Shame on Cornell for thinking they would get anything thought provoking or intellectual from the likes of Melissa Harris-Perry. Do any of you actually watch her on MSNBC? Obviously not by their TV ratings.
Embarrassing & Disrespectful speech brought to you by same individual that asked AG Holder to quack like a duck
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry said Monday that she hoped Trayvon Martin “whooped the s**t out of George Zimmerman” before he was fatally shot.
“I hope [Martin] tried to stay alive,” Harris-Perry said, speaking at the university’s Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Lecture. “I hope he knew that he lived in a state with a ‘Stand Your Ground’ law.”
“And I hope he whooped the s**t out of George Zimmerman. And it’s not disreputable because he encountered a stranger who was prepared to kill him and you know how I know? Because he killed him,” the MSNBC host added.
The Cornell Review did not appear to be that impressed either by the actions of Melissa Harris-Perry, ‘MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Curses, Jokes in MLK Speech at Cornell’.
What a shame and an embarrassment for Cornell it was to feature MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry as the speaker at the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Lecture on Feb. 23.
The event, titled “We Can’t Breathe: The Continuing Consequences of Inequality,” was ostensibly meant to serve as a thought-provoking reflection on contemporary race relations and the role the teachings of Dr. King should play today in light of recent elevation of racial tensions due to the cases involving Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Tamir Rice.
Instead, Harris-Perry delivered an hour-long comedy routine lightly mixed in, here and there, with some serious thought. Though she did reference Dr. King on numerous occasions, Harris-Perry clearly established from the very beginning that this event was really just about Harris-Perry, and not Dr. King, one of the greatest figures of the 20th century. After a humbling introduction delivered by Dean of Students Kent Hubbell, which referenced Dr. King’s 1960 speech at Cornell and also honored Cornellians slain in the Civil Rights Movement, Harris-Perry started off by taking a “selfie” with the audience behind her.
For the university’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Lecture, Harris-Perry delivered remarks entitled “We Can’t Breathe: The Continuing Consequences of Inequality.” The campus conservative newspaper, The Cornell Review, published video from the event showing the MSNBC host saying the following about the night Martin was fatally shot by Zimmerman:
I hope [Martin] tried to stay alive. I hope he knew that he lived in a state with a “Stand Your Ground’ law. And I hope he whooped the shit out of George Zimmerman. And it’s not disreputable because he encountered a stranger who was prepared to kill him, and you know how I know? Because he killed him.
Jimmy Kimmel Live: The Most Disturbing Edition Ever of ‘Lie Witness News’ … Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Edition
The most disturbing edition ever of ‘Lie Witness News’
Every week, ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ sends his cameras out onto the streets of L.A. to ask pedestrians ridiculous and over the top questions from was it right to make a Godzilla movie to last years Obama’s SOTU speach. The segment is called “Lie Witness News.” This week the topic was the speech that Martin Luther King Jr. gave this morning in Washington, DC. Sadly, the results were beyond pathetic. Seriously, just how ignorant have some people become in the United States. Newsflash, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, on Thursday April 4, 1968, at the age of 39.
People have shown their ignorance on many occasions, this once just might take the cake. Watch the below VIDEO and be prepared to just shake your head in disbelief.
“Today, on Dr. Martin Luther King Day, we asked 14 people if they saw the speech Dr. King gave this morning — and seven of them said they had.”
One guy said he thought King looked like he had gained weight and even offered some advice on how MLK could get back in shape: “You need to hit the treadmill, cardiovascular and all that.” He added, “You can do it — I believe in you.”
SNL … ‘MLK’ Learns What’s Going on in America Today and He’s Not Happy About It … “I Guess We’re Still Climbing That Mountain.”
SNL did a skit over the weekend with the ghost of Martin Luther King Jr. visiting a boy who needed to do a report on the Civil Rights leader.
When the boy informed MLK, played by Kenan Thompson, he was not all that impressed with the state of affairs in America. When told that the US elected its first black president, Barack Obama, MLK respoded, you said Barack O-what now … sounds like a Kenyan Muslim. Hmm, I guess it would have sounded more like one if student, Pete Davidson, had said his full name, Barack Hussein Obama.
Throughout the skit, MLK kept saying … “I guess we’re still climbing that mountain”.
I guess it would have been asking too much on liberal SNL to say that it was really race hustler Al Sharpton leading the civil rights movement and instead of protesting over the deaths of those like 14 year old Emmett Till, whose only crime was talking to a married, 21 year old white woman in 1955 Money Mississippi, today’s civil right movement was all about protesting the death of a black a punk at the hands of a white police officer, who committed a strong arm robbery of a store and then assaulted a police officer trying to take his gun. Yea, I get the two confused myself.
Also, not being told to the ghost of MLK was the division caused by the first elected black president, Barack Obama. Also absent was any reference that black Americans have been worse off under Obama. And I wonder why SNL excluded the fact that Americans believe that race relations are worse under the first elected black president? From the Civil Rights icon who famously made the following statement, “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character” would say about Barack Obama who used skin color and appearances in interjecting himself in the Trayvon Martin case, ‘If I Had A Son, He’d Look Like Trayvon.’
The ghost of “Martin Luther King Jr.,” played by Kenan Thompson, paid a visit to a boy trying to write a school paper on the upcoming holiday during this week’s “Saturday Night Live.”
But it was ‘MLK,’ not the kid, who wound up learning a lot during the sketch — and he didn’t like most of what he learned.
When he hears that the first black president is named Barack Obama, ‘MLK’ blurts out, “Barack O-what now? He sounds like a Kenyan Muslim!”
“MLK” gets hit with a slew of downer news — the boulevards that bear his name aren’t in the nicest neighborhoods, “Selma” got snubbed for Oscar consideration, and Macklemore, “like, the whitest dude ever,” is the face of American hip-hop.
“We’re still climbing that mountain,” “MLK” says sadly.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2015 … One Day We “Will One Day Live in a Nation Where They Will not be Judged by the Color of their Skin but by the Content of their Character”
MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY – 2015 ... Continuing in our pursuit of “The Dream”.
Once again we meet on this Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2015 and are asked to reflect on “The Dream” and the fact that we as a Nation have come a long way since the 1960′s. I personally make it a point every MLK day to listen to the words of the slain Civil Rights leader and his “I Have a Dream” speech and reflect on what it means and where we are today with that dream. Make no mistake about it America, we are a much better country for Martin Luther King Jr’s dream. The United States of America has come a long way. Do not let anyone ever tell you we have not. However, “The Dream” is much like being a Christian or life in general. You don’t just all of a sudden say, okay, I have reached my goal and nothing more is needed. Have we come a long way, yes. However, does that mean we have much more to do and always will, you betcha!
The greatness of MLK Jr’s message is that it is for all people, not just one to blacks and another to whites. Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream, and it was one of inclusion that we “will not be judged by the color of our skin but by the content of our character”. Do not let any one else try and interpret that dream for you. Never let those with an agenda that is so far from “The Dream” to make you feel less or call you something that you are not. It is sad to witness today that those that are considered Civil Rights activists are more about race hustling and division, than they are about “The Dream”. Martin Luther King Jr. was correct, it is never about the color of one’s skin, it is always about the content of one’s character. Always! Do not ever forget, it is always about character. Those who would highjack “The Dream” for their own self-serving purposes and agenda and try to divide us do America a disservice and do a disservice to Martin Luther King, Jr.
Martin Luther King – I Have A Dream Speech – August 28, 1963
January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968
Full text of MLK Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech, can be read here.
I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
Scared Monkeys would like to wish all a HAPPY NEW YEAR – 2015!!!
We wish everyone a healthy, joyous and successful New Year. As we look back over this past year and remember it with fondness and sorrow, we look forward to a new year where hope springs eternal. We look to the future and the new year in 2015.
I want to take a moment to thank all the readers, listeners and contributors of Scared Monkeys.com, the Scared Monkeys forum, Blink on Crime and Scared Monkeys Radio. Thank you for a memorable 2014. Over the year we covered so many stories, so many missing persons, so many crimes, and so many other events in the world of politics, sports and entertainment. Some made up happy, some made us sad. Through all the ups and downs, laughter and tears, we made it through another wonderful year. On a person note 2014 was especially trying as I dealt with more loss of loved and beloved ones that tested my resolve. Last but certainly not least, a special thanks to all the moderators (CBB, San, Nut44x4, Bearlyhere) and to Klaas, who spins her magic to make it all work. Thank you all so very, very much!!!
Wising you all the best in 2015. God Bless!
