A woman found a Monarch butterfly who was born with a torn wing and would be unable to fly and live out his little butterfly life, so she decided to try to save him with surgery! Via Sunny Skyz:

Romy McCloskey has a good reason to cherish butterflies more than most people. Before her mother passed away, she said, “Romy, don’t worry. Whenever you see butterflies, just know it’s me checking in on you to let you know I’m OK, and that I love you.”

So when Romy found a Monarch butterfly with an injured wing, she took it upon herself to save its life by turning her home office into an insect operating room.

Romy took to Facebook to share the story.

The patient: this 3-day-old little boy was born with torn upper and lower wings. Let’s see how we can help!

Happy first weekend of the New Year! In my part of the country we are experiencing the big bombo deep freeze after the big bombo snowstorm we got yesterday. Lucky for me, five of my six dogs are either Siberian Husky (the momma dog) or Siberian Husky Half Breeds (my 15 month old puppies, whose daddy is a Dalmatian mixed with we don’t know what), so I can still put most of the dogs out to play a few times a day. I am into week two of my six week not allowed to do much of anything post-surgery recovery period, so my family is tasked with most of my chores and I miss walking all of my dogs more than words can say. The next four weeks cannot pass quickly enough for me, but I suppose that is true for a lot of people this time of year, regardless of whether or not they have sutures in the process of healing. I heard on teevee that a “thaw” may be coming next week, so that’s something to hope for! Let’s see what excitement the dextrosphere has for us right now:

Doug Ross brings us  A TIMELINE OF TREASON: How the DNC and FBI Leadership Tried to Fix a Presidential Election

As an aside, this appears to be the biggest political scandal in the history of the country. Never before has an outgoing administration attempted to fix a presidential election. It’s like something out of a third world country. But then, Obama always admired dictators like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez.

If seeing that spreadsheet of nefarious activity has you upset, and it should, maybe some pictures of our First Lady looking gorgeous will cheer you up. MOTUS has the goods, HERE.

Right here at DaTech Guy Blog, Fausta has a debunking of the ridiculous book, Fire and Fury,  by that lying weirdo, Michael Wolff. However, I take exception to something she quoted from Althouse which infers that My Donald is “Fat” – President Trump is not “fat”, he is robust, hale, heart, mighty, big, and strong.

Dianny further debunks the Anti-Trump Fan Fiction.

Adrienne has some thoughts about the type of people who are raving about that stupid book.

Wolff has a reputation for making things up and pretending that they really happened, and he even put a disclaimer in his book admitting that the stuff therein is junk and then blames his lying on President Trump – of course!

The Trump Curse is real. In 2016, I wrote about Macy’s and their Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) affliction:

It was a big hubabaloo in the enemedia when Macy’s drank the SJW Kool Aidand stopped carrying Trump brand items from their stores after Donald Trump thruthfully made mention of the fact that violent criminals invading our country across our uninforced southern border are harming Ameican Citizens, but Macy’s is now learning that they drank poison:

CINCINNATI, Aug. 11 (UPI) — Macy’s Inc. will close about 100 of its 728 stores, beginning in early in 2017, the company announced Thursday.
[…]
The announcement comes as Macy’s revenue decreased 3.9 percent in the second quarter of 2016, and sales in the first half of 2016 totaled $11.637 billion, down 5.9 percent from the comparable 2015 period. Another Macy’s statement cited the closing of 41 underperforming stores in 2015.

Try to stump the Trump and wind up in the dump.

Fast Forward to the present and let’s see how they are doing: Macy’s announces 5,000 job cuts, 7 new store closures

In other TDS related news, leftists protested outside of Twitter’s headquarters demanding that President Trump be banned from the platform. Twitter has issued a statement in response. 

Instapundit has a shot and chaser about the Trump economy.

Hope for the future: “Trumpism” is alive, well, and growing on college campuses! That will surely melt some snowflakes!

Happy 2018, everyone! MAGA!

Happy almost New Year, everyone! I am back. The surgeries went well and I am sore, but recovering. Some friends asked me if I got sent home with good meds, and of course, due to the War On Pain Patients, the answer is “no”, but the pain is less bad than I had expected it to be so other than the fact that I am under doctor’s orders not to do much of anything for the next few weeks, tiring easily, and having itchy (from the healing I am told) booboos on my belly and the aforementioned soreness, I am OK and am getting a little better every day. Thank you to everyone who prayed for me or held me in kind thoughts.

I keep saying, “The Trump Curse is real”, and am proven correct every time karma bites one of his attackers in the butt, but Joy Villa did much worse than those who openly attack My Donald and his supporters, she is a big stinking phony who pretended to be aboard the Trump Train and then turned on everyone who had given her support, and now, Joy Villa is imploding. I predict she will circle the drain some more before her impending karmic flush washes her back to the depths of obscurity. And don’t be surprised if she has all kinds of weird bad luck as well (see Lindsey Vonn for example).

#WarOnWomen – I mean, War on WHITE Women. Remember when feminists were all “#YesALLWomen”? Now, not so much, as a feminist march organizer urges fellow leftist agitators to #ConfrontWhiteWomanhood. So that’s a thing now. Sad!

If you think that was stupid, the UK says, “hold muh beer”: they are BANNING depictions of women in traditional roles from appearing in advertisements because they claim that seeing women shown as loving mothers and wives is harmful or some such nonsense.

Deanna Jo Robinson is living a horrible nightmare. The decorated Air Force Veteran brought her children from Texas to New York City to visit their father, who she is divorced from, last month. Her ex-husband called the cops and had them search her vehicle where they found her personal gun in the glove compartment, which she has a license for in Texas, but nobody except cops and criminals may have guns in New York City, so she was arrested and hauled off to prison at Riker’s Island and her kids were placed with strangers by the City’s department of Administrative Child Services. By the way, New York City offers a $1000 reward for ratting people out about guns – even when the gun owner is legally permitted to have the gun anywhere outside of NYC. Ms. Robinson has since been released on bail, but her children are still being kept from her by ACS and she has not been allowed to visit them. Via Gateway Pundit:

On Veteran’s Day weekend, Robinson had traveled from Texas to New York, so her children could see their father. She brought her Smith & Wesson 9mm Shield handgun. As soon as they arrived at her ex-husband’s house, he apparently called the police, suspecting that she had a firearm in her car, even though she never mentioned it, never threatened anyone, never even had it in her hands. Coincidentally, New York has a $1000 reward for anyone with information that leads to an arrest involving a firearm. PURE COINCIDENCE, of course. I mean, who would turn in their ex to the police out of vengeance in order to score some quick cash and use it as leverage for custody and divorce court? (sarcasm)

Approximately 20 NYPD officers responded to the call, rushing her car, dragging her out by her hair, slamming her down on the pavement, face first, while screaming all sorts of conflicting orders at her. She’s lucky she didn’t get Daniel Shaver’ed. They searched her car with no warrant, confiscating her gun and several personal items, such as her phone, computer, a small video camera, boots, and early Christmas presents. Her car was immediately impounded. This took place at approximately 12:00 noon, Saturday, November 11th. She was kept at a precinct until around 8:00 PM, with no water, no food, and no phone call, despite her pleading for such.

She was then taken to central booking, where she was held until about 2:00 AM on Monday, November 13th. At that point, she was loaded onto a bus and taken to the women’s center at Riker’s Island, before any court, any charges formally filed, before she could speak with an attorney, before any bond was set, before she was even in front of a judge. She was kept at Riker’s Island until November 24th, when $15,000 of bail had been raised, thanks primarily to the fundraising page on Funded Justice.

[…]

Robinson has opted to stay in the New York, in large part because her children have now been ripped from her, kidnapped by the NYC “Administrative Child Services” (ACS), claiming to have emergency jurisdiction. She is not allowed to see her kids, and neither are the kids’ grandparents. Though they don’t list their number on their official website, this “child services” outfit can be reached at 718-933-1212. Robinson had previously been awarded custody by a court in Texas.

“Child Services” is supposed to give Robinson three weekly visits with her children, with a minimum of two hours per visit. So far that hasn’t happened. Instead, her children are kept with total strangers, in a large urban city which they had never been to and don’t know anything about. MORE

Last New Year’s Eve, in Cologne, Germany, hundreds of women were sexually assaulted by hordes of rampaging muslim “migrants”. This year, the politically correct believe they have a solution that will protect women from a repeat of such savagery: have them wear little rubber bracelets that say “respect”. Yeah, good luck with that.

In July, an innocent Australian woman in Minnesota had called the police to report a disturbance. When the police arrived, she went to talk to the officers who were in their vehicle, and one of the the cops, an islamic Somali immigrant (and token “diversity” hire), fatally shot her in the stomach for no apparent reason while she was talking to the other cop. The policeman who killed this woman refuses to cooperate with investigators and because it would be politically incorrect to publicize this story, it has not been much in the news, but now there will officially be no justice for the victim – ever. BNI has the full horrible story, HERE.

I bring you one last women’s issue before I sign off from this post: Complex Endometrial Hyperplasia – I have it, and I will be undergoing a medically necessary hysterectomy on Wednesday to deal with it, along with another surgery to repair an umbilical hernia that is sort of in the way and needs fixing anyway. I also have Addison’s Disease, which can make even dental surgery dangerous, so I am hoping that some of you nice people will pray for me to get through the surgeries safely. I will not be writing here next Friday, but I will return as soon as I am able. Thank you all for any prayers you can spare and thank you to Peter for giving me the opportunity to write here for all of you. May you all have a very Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah, and may God Bless you all.

With Thanksgiving in the rear view mirror, the Christmas Season has officially begun, yay! I have a little boy at home who loves to show me videos he finds of little critters doing cute things, and among his (and my) favorites are the Peacock Spiders. The males are very pretty and do flashy dances, for the ladies. Here is a specially edited video featuring spidey footage, made festive for the holidays:

National Geographic provides a fun educational video about our little fancy dancing friends.

If disco is your thing, enjoy these spideys dancing to the Bee
Gees’ “Staying Alive”:

Back to the Christmas spirit with the Dance of the Sugarplum Peacock Spiders:

Here is some great information about these flashy spidies, via Mental Floss:

They’re fuzzy, they’re flashy, and they’ve got great moves.

1. They’re small, but they’re scrappy.

Peacock spiders (genus Maratus) cram a whole lot of swagger into a teeny-tiny package. The biggest Maratus species can reach 0.3 inches—about the size of a pencil eraser.

Like almost all spiders, peacock spiders are venomous. But that doesn’t mean they’re dangerous to humans: Their little jaws are so tiny that they couldn’t even puncture our skin.

We’re safe, but crickets and other spiders are not. Like all jumping spiders, the peacock spiders don’t build webs. They stalk their prey like lions. When the time comes, they pounce, and can take down prey three or four times their size.

2. Each species has its own dance—and house mix.

Female peacock spiders are the Tina Belchers of the animal kingdom. To impress them, you need two things: a terrific butt, and a talent for shaking it.

To fulfill these requirements, male peacock spiders have evolved spectacular iridescent fans on their butts, and fancy dances to show them off. The dance of each species is unique, but most of them involve sensual leg waving and booty shaking.

As if that wasn’t enough, a male also periodically pauses his dance to drum on the ground, and occasionally on the female’s head. Spiders don’t have ears like we do, and instead hear through organs on their legs. The drumbeats’ vibrations travel across the ground and up the legs of the female, which is apparently super-hot. If the male’s little vaudeville routine is satisfactory, the spiders get down to business.

Unpopular Science can tell you more about these and a few other kinds of special spiders, HERE.

I hope you enjoyed the cute spiders, my kids and I sure do – and it is nice to get away from the news once in a while, especially near Christmastime.

There were two trials recently for two men who were each accused of genocidal war crimes. The men were on opposite sides of a conflict. One man was sentenced to life in prison, one man will serve no time at all and is free to live his life however he pleases. One man massacred thousands of men, women and children in the most painful and horrible ways imaginable, the other man killed a bunch of the killers who had killed the aforementioned people, and he did so after having evacuated the women, children, and elderly from the area first. One man enjoyed the backing of the United States and western media, the other man has been labelled “The Butcher”.  Let’s have a closer look at both men and their deeds.

Ratko Mladic was sentenced to life in prison by a U.N. Yugoslav War Tribunal this week for actions he was held responsible for that took place in Sarajevo and Srebrenica.

Naser Oric was cleared of all charges for his war crimes last month, by a Bosnian court (that would be a court belonging to the same side as himself in the conflict). Via The Geller Report:

For years, I warned of the catastrophic consequences of President Bill Clinton’s regional Islamic nation-building, aiding and abetting the Bosnian Muslims against the Christian Serbs. Like President Carter backing the Ayatollah Khomeini against the pro-American Shah, the consequences of aiding and abetting Islamic movements are catastrophic. And here is more: on Monday, the Bosnian Muslim war criminal Naser Oric was acquitted of all charges of war crimes — by a Bosnian court.

This is an outrageous miscarriage of justice. There is no doubt whatsoever that Oric led a number of massacres of Serbian civilians in the villages around Srebrenica over several years, killing more than 3,000 people. Some were crucified on trees, burned alive, tortured horribly. He even committed crimes against the Muslims in Srebrenica when he and his cronies controlled the town, but all is forgiven now: if you kill Serbian civilians, the international community doesn’t see it as a crime.   MORE

A 2008 photo essay by Peter North revealed a lot about the conflict in the former Yugoslavia that will never be covered by the mainstream media (there are VERY GRAPHIC images at the link):

The Real Srebrenica Genocide: The mass murder of Serbs in Srebrenica and Gorazde from 1992 to 1995 by Alija Izetbegovic’s Islamofascist terrorists

The real Srebrenica Genocide not reported by the corrupt, racist pro-Islamist-Nazi Western corporate-controlled media, was the brutal mass murder – using axes, knives, daggers, sledgehammers, iron bars, flamethrowers and explosives – of 3,870 Serbian elderly men, women and young children in and around the town of Srebrenica and its adjoining towns and villages(Bratunac,Skelani,Milici, et al) as well as the town of Gorazde. MUCH MORE HERE

A 2015 post from Pamela Geller shares an article from investigative reporter and historian Christopher J. Green which tells us more about what Ratko Mladec and Naser Oric are known to have done:

Muslim troops raped, disembowelled, beheaded and roasted alive their victims. Curiously, all of these atrocities were ignored by the Western media who had singled out the Serbs as being the aggressors from the very start of the war.

Proof of the diabolical crimes committed by Bosnian Muslims came from the commander of the UN peace keeping force General Philippe Morillon. He had personally seen the mutilated bodies of Serb civilians and in his testimony to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, he stated Oric’s jihadists had carried out:

attacks during Orthodox holidays including Christmas Eve and destroyed villages, massacring all the inhabitants. This created a degree of hatred that was quite extraordinary in the region.

20 Years On – The Deception of Srebrenica Is Still Advancing Islamic Jihad

By Christopher J. Green – 07/16/2015

Saturday July 11th 2015 marked the twentieth anniversary of the massacre of Bosnian Muslims by Bosnian Serbs in the town of Srebrenica. The opportunity to indulge in an orgy of Serb-bashing by opportunist, self-serving politicians and the duplicitous media was simply too good to miss. They were all-too-keen to continue propagating one of the biggest deceptions ever perpetrated on the West, a deception that did so much to advance Islamic jihad. For Islam, Srebrenica is the gift that keeps on giving as you’ll now see.

Let’s start with the then President of the United States, the Democrat Bill Clinton. Speaking at a ceremony at Srebrenica to mark the anniversary, a sombre Mr. Clinton apologized for the amount of time it took for the necessary force to be brought against the Serbs.

The former President neglected to mention the two peace deals scuppered by the United States which would’ve prevented so much bloodshed, including the massacre at Srebrenica. In 1992, the peace deal brokered by Portuguese diplomat José Cutileiro known as “The Lisbon Agreement,” had been signed by all three warring factions in Bosnia: The Croats, Serbs and Bosnian Muslims.

However, after meeting with US Ambassador Warren Zimmerman, the leader of the Bosnian Muslims Alija Izetbegovic disavowed his signature and made an avoidable war almost certain.

Mr. Clinton didn’t mention the scuppering of the Vance-Owen plan in January 1993 which occurred under his Presidency. Once again, all sides had agreed to the deal which divided territory on ethnic lines. US ambassador Warren Christopher encouraged the Bosnian Muslims to hold out for an additional four percent of territory. Due to his advice, the deal collapsed

Across the pond, British politician Sir Eric Pickles tweeted his sympathy for the victims of Srebrenica, foolishly comparing the “genocide” to the holocaust. He seems to forget Jews were not committing atrocities against Germans, unlike Muslims in Bosnia against the Serbs. But the accusation of genocide is also incorrect because the Serbs had evacuated women and the elderly from Srebrenica. This proves it was a massacre and not genocide yet facts like this are conveniently ignored by both politicians and the media.

Predictably, the mainstream media all regurgitated the tried-and-tested “Serbs were guilty of committing genocide against Muslims” false narrative just as they had done twenty years previously. When you read the reports, all of them focus on what happened in July 1995. They accuse the Serbs of besieging the town, kidnapping UN peace-keepers and forcing women and children to flee. The aim is still to portray the Muslims as the innocent victims of Serb hatred and brutality.

It’s true the Bosnian Serb army did besiege the town and yes, they did indeed hold UN peace-keepers hostage to prevent NATO from carrying out air strikes on Serb positions. But it was Bosnian Serb commander Colonel-General Ratko Mladic who gave the order to evacuate the women and the elderly from Srebrenica.

So, there was a massacre at Srebrenica in July 1995. The question begging to be asked is: What happened beforethe massacre occurred?

Srebrenica, a predominantly Muslim town, was designated as a “UN Safe Zone” defended by around 600 Dutch UN peacekeepers. Between 1992 and 1995, Bosnian Muslim forces were smuggling weapons into the protectorate, attacking Serb positions as well as using it as a base to launch attacks on surrounding Serb villages. During that time, Bosnian Muslim forces under the command of Naser Oric massacred an estimated two-thousand Serbs including women and children.

Oric’s Bosniak Muslim troops raped, disembowelled, beheaded and roasted alive their victims. Curiously, all of these atrocities were ignored by the Western media who had singled out the Serbs as being the aggressors from the very start of the war.

Proof of the diabolical crimes committed by Bosnian Muslims came from the commander of the UN peace keeping force General Philippe Morillon. He had personally seen the mutilated bodies of Serb civilians and in his testimony to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, he stated Oric’s jihadists had carried out:

attacks during Orthodox holidays including Christmas Eve and destroyed villages, massacring all the inhabitants. This created a degree of hatred that was quite extraordinary in the region.

So much for Srebrenica being a “safe zone.” Clearly the UN peacekeepers were failing in their duty and were complicit in these massacres. It’s also curious that the media neither at the time of the massacres or on the anniversary twenty years later make any mention of what happened in the lead up to the massacre at Srebrenica.

Are the Serbs innocent? Of course not and their massacre of Bosnian Muslims committed out of revenge is equally as deplorable as the massacres committed by Oric’s jihadists. But war is a very dirty business. In a war where all sides – Serbs, Croats and Muslims – committed atrocities, apportioning all the blame on one side is part of the crime. It must be said, the failure of the UN to stop a “safe zone” becoming a base for Muslim terrorists means they must shoulder a share of the blame for the massacres too.

Serbian lust for revenge wasn’t the only motive at work here. The Bosnian Muslims were desperate to get the United States on their side because they knew the US could urge NATO to intervene in what was a civil war. President Clinton was looking for an excuse to justify military intervention. Oric and his commanders knew when the Serbs took Srebrenica there would be reprisals for what he and his vicious band of jihadists had done. They also knew this would give the President his perfect reason to justify military intervention against the Serbs. Just before Srebrenica fell into Serb hands, Oric and his men left the town and abandoned the remaining Muslims to their terrible fate.

So far from being genocide, Srebrenica was a betrayal of Muslims by Muslims to bring NATO into the civil war. Muslims were sacrificed by their own people for this cause. It was a set-up and it worked even better than Oric imagined, fooling Western politicians like Bill Clinton and of course, the mass media who seized the opportunity to demonize the Serbs who were wrongly accused of committing genocide. A crime they are still being accused of to this day.

The deception led to NATO jets bombing Serb forces at Srebrenica, thus becoming the air force for Islamic jihad. Although the war in Bosnia is commonly believed to be a civil war, it wasn’t really. It was and still is part of the global Islamic jihad and it did so much to help Islam establish a foothold in central Europe. And the West aided and abetted it.

Maybe it also set the tone for the denial of the reality of Islam and jihad. Twenty years on from the deception of Srebrenica, it simply does not occur to most people in the West that the atrocities carried out by Muslim forces during the war in Bosnia are exactly the same atrocities Islamic State is carrying out against Christians in Iraq and Syria today. And if anyone dared suggest it, no doubt they’d be told “it’s nothing to do with Islam.”  MORE

Bare Naked Islam has more information about the demonization of the Serbs, the long and largely untold history of ethnic cleansing in The Balkans, and how Bill Clinton helped set the stage for ISIS in that region:

Fortunately, many western citizens no longer take Western mainstream media propaganda for granted as they did in 90’s and they are new alternative media which are breaking the monopoly of the western mainstream media.

Former chief NSA analyst: “Most of the Muslims killed in Srebrenica were soldiers who refused to surrender.”

 Unlike the Bosnian Muslim forces, the Bosnian Serb forces didn’t kill any of Srebrenica women, children and older people but instead bused them out to the main territory controlled by the Bosnian Muslim forces. During the debate in the UN Security council neo-con and US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power whined: ‘What’s next? Holocaust denial?’ In this way, Mrs. Power insulted the victims of Holocaust comparing a hoax civilian massacre in Srebrenica with the Nazi genocide against Jews and Slavs in WW2.The crimes committed by Bosnian Muslim forces were “extraordinary” and made the Serbs’ desire for revenge to be“inevitable.”

The media neglect of the massacres against Orthodox Christians in and around Srebrenica – and such leniency taken against Bosnian Muslim individuals who committed such crimes – not only leaves a sour taste – it is a falsification of history and covers up many untold stories which helps to dehumanize the Serbians. It also negates to share responsibility where it belongs – this applies to all parties who committed massacres. This also includes the United States and CIA which conveniently “overlooked” 8,000 of the most brutal and fanatical Islamists to enter Bosnia on false passports in order to slit the throats of Orthodox Christians.

The Bosnian Serbs might have had the heaviest weapons, but the Bosnian Muslims matched them in infantry skills that were much in demand in the rugged terrain around Srebrenica. As the snow cleared in the spring of 1995, it became obvious to Nasar Oric, the man who led the Bosnian Muslim fighters that the Bosnian Serb army was going to attack Srebrenica to stop him from attacking Serb villages. So he and a large number of his fighters slipped out of town. Srebrenica was left undefended with the strategic thought that, if the Serbs attacked an undefended town, surely that would cause NATO and the UN to agree that NATO air strikes against the Serbs were justified. And so the Bosnian Serb army strolled into Srebrenica without opposition.”

The brutal civil wars throughout the former Yugoslavia led to the ethnic cleansing of Serbians in Krajina. However, not only was nothing done about this, the Croatian forces who did this had been backed by America and other nations during the conflict.

Also, the ghosts of past Muslim SS Units who supported Nazi Germany alongside Croatian fascists, was still etched into the memory because the events of World War Two were never reconciled under communist rule after the war. Therefore, with this, and the Ottoman Muslim past of enslaving young Orthodox Christian boys and then converting them to Islam – then the fear was not based on myths or on distant memories.

By glossing over the massacres of 3,500 Orthodox Christians in and around Srebrenica; the role of the United States in turning a blind eye to 8,000 international Islamists (some members who did September 11 had learnt much in Bosnia); the actions of the Bosnian Muslim leader, Alija Izetbegovic, in abandoning the Muslim enclave; and other important factors. It entails that Srebrenica is being manipulated for all the wrong reasons and that the dehumanization of the Serbians is a convenient way for Western powers to gloss over the reality on the ground. It also suits the Bosnian Muslim leadership which abandoned the enclave despite fighting against fellow Muslims in the west.

It also should be remembered that Bosnian Muslim forces had slaughtered thousands of Christians first in the surrounding region of Srebrenica and that the “safe haven” was abused. Military generals from the international community who were in Bosnia state this clearly, and Morillon testified in court.”

The over simplification of major media outlets shames the mass media in general because the same cover up and lack of basic facts, are still being told by major international media agencies. Indeed, the coverage and headlines in some media outlets is bordering on anti-Serbian racism. Also, to gloss over the events of what happened prior to the Bosnian Serbs entering Srebrenica is not merely shoddy journalism, it is open manipulation and propaganda.  MORE HERE

Two men on opposing sides of a conflict, and while both killed lots of people, the guy who evacuated the elderly and women and children (from the opposing side) to protect them from getting killed goes to jail forever for “war crimes” and the guy who had everyone on the opposing side (including the elderly and women, and children) brutally tortured, mutilated, burned alive, crucified and massacred gets away with it. Nothing to see here folks, move along – and if you think there is something wrong with how “justice was served” in the cases of these men then you must be an islamophobe or something and are very likely guilty of thought crimes.

My best friend texted me from work the other day with a picture of what she discovered in the snack that she was attempting to enjoy on her break. She was eating Wonderful brand pistachios, and apparently what happened to her is NOT an isolated incident.

The non-stop barrage of negative news and/or nasty fake news can really grind us all down sometimes, so I scoured the web and found a few things that I hope will help lighten the load and brighten everyone’s weekend.

Honor Flight Brings Veterans to D.C. to Visit Their War Memorials

Lea Gabrielle joined 150 veterans of World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War on an honor flight to Washington, D.C., to visit their war memorials.

Gabrielle, a Navy veteran, explained that nonprofit organization Stars and Stripes Honor Flight flies veterans from Milwaukee to the nation’s capital to honor them for their service.

When they arrived in D.C., they received a hero’s welcome, with dozens of well-wishers cheering for them and holding signs expressing thanks and gratitude.

“When we got back from Vietnam, there was no welcome. It was like nobody cared about us, to be honest,” one vet said. “It’s the welcome home we never got.”

Gabrielle said time spent at the World War II memorial brought awe, while the Vietnam memorial brought tears.

Brothers Roger, Conn and Grant Hagen, who all served in Vietnam, grew emotional as they looked at the 58,318 names of the fallen carved into the memorial wall.

When the vets got back on the plane to go home, they received a special surprise: letters of thanks from their loved ones.

Back in Milwaukee, they were greeted by family, friends and dozens of grateful Americans.

“For many, returning to their loved ones is that welcome home they’ve been waiting so long for,” Gabrielle said.

Toddler Who Saluted Fallen Officer For 2 Straight Hours Is Surprised With Pint-Size Squad Car

In early October 2017, 3-year-old Cohen Chastain honored a fallen officer from his hometown by standing up and saluting during her funeral procession — for two straight hours.

The tot’s actions moved not only his family but also the entire Floyd County Sheriff’s Office.

On October 24, 2017, the police officers wanted to thank Cohen for what he did and decided to make him an honorary police officer for the day. Like any officer, Cohen needed his very own squad car.

Everyone in the police department chipped in and bought Cohen his own pint-sized squad car as well as other goodies.

“Many of you might recall this amazing three-year-old. Cohen stood for more than two hours during the processional honoring our sister, Det. Kristen Hearne. We wanted to bless Cohen for his selfless act of support and love,” the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a Facebook post.

Autumn is beautiful for those who can see the wonderful colors of the leaves as they change on the trees, and now even colorblind people have a chance to enjoy it at a National Park in Tennessee. Via GoodNewsNetwork:

According to the National Park Service, the Great Smoky Mountain range in Tennesse is the most visited national park in America. When October and November roll around, the mountain ranges transform into a breathtaking collage of red, orange, and yellow colors.

For 13 million Americans who suffer from colorblindness, however, the scenery remains a bland shade of greenish-brown.

This is why the Tennessee Department of Tourism Development installed several special viewing devices for colorblind visitors across the park.

If you are color blind and can’t get to Tennessee, there is a company that makes special glasses that people can wear to help.

If you need boots and want to Buy American, Digg has an article about six American boot making companies, HERE.

Have a nice weekend, everyone.

Maybe he was bored. Presiding over the mass starvation of your country’s people isn’t a cakewalk, after all.

Venezuela’s Joe Stalin lookalike dictator has been criticized for becoming a fat bastard while the people in his country wait for hours in line to get bread, resort to picking through trash for anything edible, and die in the streets of hunger – but that won’t make Nicolás Maduro lose his appetite:

American Thinker has more about this:

Thursday, Maduro was in the midst of a long-winded national speech known in Venezuela as a “cadena.”  He paused, pulled a sandwich-like object out of his desk, and took a bite, chomped it down, and then continued his speech.  He was eating what looked like a Venezuelan arepa, a tasty cornmeal-based snack with probably some meat inside, although the Latin press accounts identified it as an empanada, a dish more commonly associated with Argentina and Chile.

It comes at a time when the Venezuelan daily minimum wage, just raised for the sixth time this year, won’t even cover the cost of an empanada, let alone an arepa, given that inflation is running at close to 3,000% and Maduro has just introduced the new 100,000 bolivar note.

Efecto Concuya, via Google Translate, reports:

For the sixth time in 2017, President Nicolás Maduro announced a new increase in the minimum wage that placed the daily salary at Bs. 5,916, but the number of products that can be purchased with that amount is increasingly reduced.

In a sale of breakfast and lunch located in the municipality of Libertador, a pie costs 5,500 bolivars and a filled arepa exceeds Bs. 12,000. There was Rodolfo Gutiérrez, who bought two empanadas and a malt for an amount of Bs. 15,500. That is, someone who only receives a minimum wage, nothing else could pay for a pie.

In a restaurant located in El Cafetal, municipality Baruta, it is impossible to even buy a pie, because it has a price of Bs. 7,500. A large coffee is also inaccessible since it is sold above 8,000 bolivars.

What it shows is the Venezuelan elites’ complete indifference to the suffering of Venezuela’s people.  They mark their superiority over the masses – not by flashing Rolexes anymore, but by eating in front of them.

And don’t think such a message didn’t get out.  Cadenas in Venezuela break into every TV set, every radio show, every program without warning, no matter what’s playing.  You don’t have the option to flip the channel, because the cadena is on every channel.

And cadenas can last for hours.  The logic was that the president’s announcements were so crucial, so important, and so necessary that every other broadcast could just be broken into, like the emergency broadcast system.

You got that? It wasn’t just a video version of the “hot mic”, people had no choice in watching it if they had a television on, and Maduro knew it.

Is this man stupid or just cruel?

Please pray for the people of Venezuela.
