There are some cool ruins of villages on Greenland from the Middle Ages. Don't tell libs, but the climate of Greenland was much warmer at one time.

If Alaska was bought and paid for from the Ruskies , Trump can buy Greenland with a bit of U.S. backing.

Must be fake news. A real estate mogul like Trump would opt to lease it. No, seriously, I think it is one of the most unusual and creative ideas I've heard in some time. Wonder what the natural resources are. Need to look it up. I'm sure fishing is a big industry...

Epstein killed himself in his Manhattan jail cell, the city’s medical examiner’s office said on Friday, determining that the cause of death was suicide by hanging. The determination came six days after Mr. Epstein, 66, was found dead in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, where he was awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. Guards on their morning rounds found Mr. Epstein at about 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, prison officials said. He appeared to have tied a bedsheet to the top of a set of bunk beds, then knelt toward the floor with enough force that he broke several bones in his neck, officials said.

The protests started in response to an extradition bill that was proposed by the city’s Beijing-backed chief executive, Carrie Lam, in February. Hong Kongers rightfully feared that should the extradition bill become law, the city would be forced to turn over to China anyone President Xi Jinping’s regime deems a “criminal,” including human-rights activists, political dissidents, and others who pose a threat
