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.

Have you ever seen a man wielding a trident while surfing Lake Superior in sub-zero weather?

He might be Poseidon himself!

Dean Hains Photography noted on his Facebook page:

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.

Resistance Agitators Deface Trump Hollywood Star with Profane Putin Parable

The “resistance” is but a symptom of our sick society, and we are running out of time to turn it around.

The “resistance” to President Trump is nothing more than a symptom of a sick society, and none of us are completely innocent. We’ve fallen victim to the mainstream media’s “infotainment” whims for so long that we no longer resemble the nation were were built to be.  Instead of free thinkers, focusing on liberty and pursuit of happiness, we’ve shuffled ourselves into tiny little boxes marked “red” and “blue”, or “democrat” and “republican”. And I get it, it’s exhilarating to argue on the internet with one another and gain those bits of validation from our peers, but we are producing a much larger problem than the hurt feelings on Facebook.  We are falling victim to the sensationalism of the mainstream publishers because, now, thanks to social media, we are all publishers. It is this false dichotomy that created the “resistance” to President Trump, and it’s the “resistance” who are dragging our national state of mind back into the early 1860’s, as evidenced by the latest defacing of President Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star. We must warn you, the language ahead is profane. President Trump’s Walk of Fame star got a fresh coat of paint, but he ain’t gonna be thrilled about it … because it was spray paint and it spelled out … “Putin’s Bitch.” Trump’s star was attacked again early Wednesday morning, and TMZ has the footage of the vandals in the act. Around 3:40 AM … one guy — who appears to have blonde hair — sprayed a coat of black paint over the star. Then, in white paint, he added his coup de grace. There was another man with the vandal … shooting photos and/or video. The graffiti is alluding to a widely held conspiracy theory among opponents of the President that the Oval Office has somehow been compromised…

President Trump Contradicts Mueller Report on Key Democratic Concern

The President is claiming that Don McGhan’s sworn testimony in the Mueller report is a lie.

The fight over the public perception of the Mueller report has been raging in Washington and on television for the last several days, and there looks to be no end in sight. The media is doing their thing, whatever that thing seems to be.  They are dividing the nation up into easily definable segments as a way to pit us against each other, because an angry America makes for great ratings. Politicians are certainly doing their part as well, with democratic lawmakers insisting on a nonstop issuance of subpoenas to those involved in the report’s manufacture, as well as some legal requests from way outside the realm of RussiaGate. Amid all this, the President is standing firm in his insistence that there was “no collusion, no obstruction”, even going so far today as to cast doubts on the authenticity of the testimony of his own aides. President Donald Trump denied Thursday he ordered White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. “As has been incorrectly reported by the Fake News Media, I never told then-White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire Robert Mueller, even though I had the legal right to do so,” the president wrote on Twitter. “If I wanted to fire Mueller, I didn’t need McGahn to do it, I could have done it myself.” Trump noted that ultimately Mueller was not fired and was allowed to complete his investigation, even though there was no crime to investigate. Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference on the 2016 election contained sworn testimony from McGhan to the contrary, and this is one of the key points of the democratic party’s renewed interest in the possibility of charging the President with obstruction of justice.
