The polar vortex forced millions of Americans to remain indoors as the freezing cold swept through the country.

After a rough spell, temperatures have started to rise – albeit slowly.

On February 2, one man managed to snap some of the craziest photos you’re likely to see near the Great Lakes region.

The polar vortex made for some fun conditions to go chill in Lake Superior for my friends Surfer Dan and Allen Finau. I had a blast photographing these two in the sub zero temps this past week. Daniel Schetter

Here’s more about the polar vortex, per Detroit Free Press:

Michiganders are tough. When there’s a challenge, we grit our teeth and work together. This past week, our state faced record-breaking, life-threatening low temperatures that we haven’t seen in 25 years. But true to form, we gritted our teeth, worked together, and did everything we could to make sure our friends, family and neighbors got through the cold weather safely.

[…]

These were extraordinary circumstances that we haven’t seen in decades. Wind chill temperatures of around -30 to -50 degrees occurred for more than 48 hours across all of Michigan. In these conditions, frostbite for exposed skin could happen in less than 10-15 minutes.

[…]

Our state employees worked tirelessly to keep Michiganders safe over the past week. Our emergency responders and snow-plow drivers were out day and night helping people get the resources they needed to survive, warming centers across the state opened their doors and provided food and shelter to those who needed it, and representatives from each state department worked to make sure Michiganders everywhere could call 211 and get the information they needed. I’m proud of the work our state employees did, and I know that in any crisis, we’re all in good hands because of the great work they do on our behalf.

Mayor Cancels LGBTQ Pride Flag Raising At City Hall. You Can Probably Guess What Happened Next

Insert eye roll here.

Published

on

The city administration of Reading, Pennsylvania is being called discriminatory by rabid left-wingers after canceling a ceremony to raise an LGBTQ pride flag at city hall on Monday of this week. City hall canceled the flag ceremony because flying the flag would be showing support for a “political movement” and no flags supporting such movements are to be flown at city hall. via TheBlaze: “People don’t realize how many people come here looking to put up flags for movements and stuff, and I’m just not part of that, and I don’t think we should be,” the Democrat added to WPVI-TV. The LGBT Center of Greater Reading issued a statement saying “what was supposed to be a proud and historical moment” turned into “a show of blatant, unacceptable discrimination.” “We are not a cause,” the statement added. “We are human beings protected by an anti-discrimination ordinance in the City of Reading.” Local LGBTQ leaders told WPVI they plan to file a complaint with the city’s Human Relations Commission. Why should LGBTQ folks have a flag flying at city hall? If all they want is to be treated like everyone else, to be considered equal, why do they continually seek to have more rights and be a protected group? That just doesn’t make any sense. It seems pretty clear what they are really reaching for is normalization. They want other people to accept their lifestyle as normal and acceptable, to be validated. This is because deep down, they know such a lifestyle is sinful and goes against nature. This is identity politics at its finest.

NY Times Makes Insane Claim About Soviets During The Space Race

The folks at the NY Times must be just plain miserable.

Published

on

So it’s beginning to seem like the folks over at the NY Times have some sort of strange infatuation with the oppressive Communist overlords from the Soviet Union, as they’re now, on the cusp of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing, claiming that the Soviet Union actually won the space race. How, exactly, did they do that? Through “equality.” This, ladies and gentlemen, is just how much the left hates America. Here’s more from TheBlaze: Here’s Sophie Pinkham’s main argument: The Cold War was fought as much on an ideological front as a military one, and the Soviet Union often emphasized the sexism and racism of its capitalist opponents — particularly the segregated United States. And the space race was a prime opportunity to signal the U.S.S.R.’s commitment to equality. After putting the first man in space in 1961, the Soviets went on to send the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit — all years before the Americans would follow suit. Pinkham joins a long list of NYT writers who have glorified the excesses of the Soviet Union. In his – ironically – New York Times best-selling book, “Unfreedom of the Press,” LevinTV host Mark Levin exposed this long history, dating back to Walter Duranty and his propaganda about Stalin’s regime. For nearly a century, the Times has lauded the murderous thugs who ran the Soviet Union and the system they employed. This week, as America celebrates one of her crowning achievements of the 20th century, the Times piles on again, this time by glorifying a few of the people the Soviet’s brutal regime didn’t kill for disagreeing with it. How crazy is this? Apparently these folks are forgetting about how homosexuality is viewed in Russia to this day. It’s not…
