President Obama attends Easter service where pastor calls conservatives racist. And sexist and xenophobic, too. Here’s what Rev. Luis Leon of Saint John’s Church preached to the president today while trying to express the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus:

“You cannot go back. It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back: for blacks to be back in the back of the bus, for women to be back in the kitchen, for immigrants to be back on their side of the border.”

WTF? This is an Easter sermon? Who gave this yahoo a church?

Group wants to give guns to the poor. “It’s called the ‘Armed Citizen Project’, and it aims to provide guns to poor Americans in high crime neighborhoods.” Empowerment.

Teen mob action takes over Chicago’s Gold Coast. “You had a group of teens, close to maybe 500. They assaulted a Chicago police officer that was mounted on a horse and all of a sudden they assaulted a citizen walking the streets, just a normal citizen shopping and enjoying the weather.” End stage progressive utopia.

WaPo executives make millions while paper cuts staff, benefits. “The publisher of the struggling Washington Post made over $2.4 million last year, and at least three other executives made over $3 million…” But like the Hollyweirdos, they’re lefty Democrats so shut up.

HHS Sec’y Sebelius doesn’t understand what insurance is. “…thinks insurance isn’t really insurance unless it covers routine expenses. This is exactly backwards.” Well, just add insurance to the list of things that people in this brilliant administration don’t understand. The list is long (loooooong) so you may need additional forms.

In UK, nearly 900,000 leave disability rolls rather than face needs test. “The 878,300 who decided not to have an official assessment of whether they were fit for work was more than a third of the total number of people claiming sickness-related benefits. …some claimants cited conditions such as ‘blisters’, ‘sprains and strains’ and ‘acne’ as preventing them from having a job.” Miracle cure!

Another sign of impending apocalypse? This is the final Easter for Eggshelland. The driving spirit behind the annual display of tens of thousands of colored eggs, Ron Manolio, died last year, so the 55-year tradition will end. Don’t laugh, this is serious. In California they look for signs in the Mayan calendar – here in the Midwest we look at Eggshelland.

St. Louis Anti-Gun Rally Becomes Rally To Cede US Sovereignty. Oh yes! Let’s just let a total abject failure like the United Nations take over our country. Let’s look at the terrific success they’ve had in Haiti. Well if success spreading cholera and having street-gangs run rampant, killing, maiming, robbing and raping then yes, they’re certainly a success.

Why the Euro Is Doomed in 4 Steps. Just wait until New York, Illinois and California puke and see what happens here. Probably a bank robbery bail-in.

ON EASTER, GOOGLE HONORS CESAR CHAVEZ. Frankly, we’re surprised they didn’t have a picture of Obama on the cross, ready to be resurrected so he can go play golf.

Countdown to chaos: Can the Feds get their Obamacare act together in time? “We are 149 days away from the October 1 deadline for state insurance exchanges to be up and running so that citizens can purchase plans and find out how much of a subsidy they are eligible for. The IT requirements to connect everything, have all the interfaces in place, not to mention securing the system from hackers looking to steal your personal information, are incredibly complex.” And remember that the contract to build them will go to the lowest bidder – or more likely, some pol’s crony.

It’s the cold, not global warming, that should worry us. Since 2003, when Brits were warned that global warming is a more serious threat to human life than terrorism, “250,000 Brits have died from the cold, and 10,000 from the heat.” If you plotted those stats on a chart, would it look like a hockey stick?

Bank of Cyprus ‘haircut’ for big depositors detailed. Now that the EU has Cypress bending forward for 40%, they want them to bend over and spread ’em for 60%. Cypress should tell them to stuff it ala Iceland and watch the EU go into panic mode. We assume their politicians are as nutless as ours are and their next move will be to grab their ankles.

COMMON CORE USES SCIENTOLOGY VIDEOS TO TEACH STUDENTS THEY HAVE RIGHT TO FOOD, HOUSING, CLOTHING, MEDICINE, EVEN A JOB. We say the UN and Scientology are a fluke of the universe and have no right to be here.

Defense Department says giving Purple Heart to Fort Hood survivors would hurt Hasan trial. We find fault they can only receive the Purple Hearts if this is terrorism (which it is). In the Army, your workplace is the battlefield. So shouldn’t they get Purple Hearts even if this is workplace violence like the brassheads want everyone to think?

“Blinded by the white”: MSNBC’s race obsession reaches ridiculous new level. We’re on board with “ridiculous” but the word “reaches” is a stretch – “sinks” is a better fit. In that vein, click here to read Iowahawk’s side-by-side comparison of Toure and Ben Carson.

North Korea threats predictable but Kim Jong Un is not, analysts say. “Kim Jong Un may need to consolidate his political power at home. A strong response by the U.S. or South Korea, such as this week’s B-2 bomber flyover, helps rally domestic support and distract from economic problems.” Yeah, a good war always makes people forget they’re eating cardboard. Did we say “eating”?

Obamacare is Obama’s Iraq War. “The Iraq War cost $1 trillion and produced a quagmire abroad. Obamacare will cost $1 trillion and will create a quagmire at home. Americans need an exit strategy.” Sorry, the exit door was nailed shut Nov 6, 2012 when America reelected President Quagmire. See you on the other side of the ObamaCare abyss.

Video: Planned Parenthood Official Argues for Right to Post-Birth Abortion: Planned Parenthood was started with the belief in the right of the few super-humans to sterilize and slaughter the many “sub-humans” that stood in the way of the society they wanted to build. The goals of the progressives have not changed over the decades. But it is utterly chilling that they are starting to openly express them again.

Turin Shroud “is not a medieval forgery”. “The Turin Shroud is not a medieval forgery, as has long been claimed, but could in fact date from the time of Christ’s death, a new book claims.” Centuries-old mystery continues to be mysterious.

NPR laments “confusion” campaign to teach two sides on climate change. Yeah, ’cause that’s how science is s’posed to work: once the politicians, journ0lists and celebrities vote on the truth, it’s settled and everybody shut up.

Cyprus: Can it happen here? Dr. Thomas Sowell explains “the U.S. government is very unlikely to just seize money wholesale from people’s bank accounts,” but then it doesn’t have to… that’s what Quantitative Easing is for.
