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!

The operating room. Towel, scissors, tweezers, talc, contact cement, toothpick and my sweet girl who died earlier last week (for wings.)

Ta-da! He’s finished! You can see that the black lines in is upper right wing don’t match up 100%.

If my daughter sees this post, I would not be surprised if she wanted to set up a bug surgery clinic somewhere in our house. That girl is always rescuing all kinds of insects, and also spiders.

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!

From the department of what’s good for the goose is good for the gander, iOTWReport.com is writing a book, and you can help! Check it out and be sure to read the comments section!

Bill Quick (the guy who named the Blogosphere!) has Some Thoughts on Trump and What 2018 Will Bring to the Islamic World that are well worth reading.

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.

This is my first attempt at sitting in a chair at a desk to use the computer, and it is uncomfortable but tolerable for the moment. I’m thinking a Last Friday of 2017 MAGA linkaround sounds like a good plan right now, so here we go!

CNN has been trying to stalk President Trump through a gap in some bushes outside of a Florida golf course, like the creepy freaks that they are, and they were stymied by a white box truck that parked in front of said gap. This caused the Counterfeit News Network to lose their collectivist minds:

Joy Villa got lots of attention for showing up on the red carpet at an awards show wearing a Trump MAGA gown, and we deplorables thought that was pretty neat, but it turns out that Joy is not what she pretended to be and is instead simply an opportunist and an attention hog. Dianny unmasked her HERE. 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).

Last night I was honored to join my friends, Mr Pinko and Mike Nordstrom on their radio show, and they let me talk and talk! It was fun. If you’d like to have a listen to the podcast, you can do so HERE. The U.S. and Eh!? Show is very pro-Trump and doing its part to MAGA for everyone in earshot.

I hope you enjoy the links! Time for me to exit this chair until the next time. Happy New Year, y’all, MAGA!

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders gets no love from the left, but plenty of love from Reddit’s The_Donald forum where she is known as both Sarah the Warrior Princess and also, as Lieutenant to the God Emperor, Sarah the Shield-Bearer, Patron Saint of the Order of the Fiery Heart. Check out these great photoshops:

Dianny at the Patriot Retort writes about the left’s unrelenting mission to dehumanize Sarah (and everyone else they see fit to destroy), and she includes this lovely picture from Twitter featuring Sarah concluding the #PieGate “scandal” nonsense with good humor and a friendly smile – and pie:

#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.

While driving down Route 55 in Lagrangeville, New York (about 60 miles north of New York City) on the way to a medical appointment yesterday, I spotted a sign outside of Kelly’s Steaks and Spirits that sure lifted mine! The sign announced that they DO NOT air NFL games in that establishment and the sign further went on to say:

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

If I were not driving at the time I would have taken a picture.  I do not have the resources to go out for dinner, but that sign alone (in NEW YORK) is enough reason for me to want to check that place out if the opportunity to dine out should ever present itself to me. Predictably, the Trump Derangement Syndrome afflicting people has caused an outbreak of hatred and poor reviews for this establishment.  At the top of their page, Facebook highlights certain words they think we need to know people are using:
