Trump Is Completely Right To
Try To Buy Greenland

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 8/29/2019 6:12:20 PM

News broke a couple of weeks ago that President Donald Trump is apparently interested in acquiring for the United States the barren, remote Arctic island of Greenland. Trump is hardly the first president to express an interest in acquiring the Danish semi-autonomous region for the United States. As Hank Berrien of The Daily Wire noted at the time, the possibility of acquiring Greenland has been publicly floated by previous administrations: "President Harry Truman offered to buy Greenland from Denmark for $100 million in 1946" and "the State Department during the tenure of President Andrew Johnson considered buying Iceland and Greenland in 1867."

If the Greenlanders are for, Denmark is for, and the USA is for it, go for it. Note in advance to the Greenlanders - welcome to the United States of America.

Denmark can sell it to us or have it taken by the Russians or Chinese. It's really a no-brainer.

In an interview with the British magazine Attitude, Lucien Greaves, the co-founder of The Satanic Temple in the United States, says that "more than 50% of our membership is LGBTQ," and that is a "conservative estimate." Attitude is a best-selling gay magazine, founded in 1994. The Satanic Temple was founded in 2013 and it promotes a secular humanist agenda. The Temple, based in Salem, Mass., denies that there is an actual Satan and it claims that it does not worship the Devil. “It would be a conservative estimate to say that more than 50 per cent of our membership is LGBTQ," Greaves told Attitude.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is unapologetic for fabricating an emotional story about the war in Afghanistan, claiming its “essence” is true. Biden, who is under fire after The Washington Post exposed a story he told about pinning a medal on a reluctant Navy officer as inaccurate, defended his conduct while campaigning in South Carolina on Thursday.“I don’t understand what they’re talking about, but the central point is it was absolutely accurate what I said,” Biden told The Post and Courier when asked about the controversy. “He refused the medal. I put it on him, he said, ‘Don’t do that to me, sir. He died. He died.’”

Some folks just weren’t meant to be in front of a camera. MSNBC has pulled the plug on “Saturday Night Politics” after the series aired only 13 episodes. “Saturday Night Politics” was hosted by Donny Deutsch and this is his fifth show to be canceled. Yes. Fifth. There’s almost something impressive to that level of commitment to something that clearly is not working.

Joe Biden praised young ‘DACA’ illegal migrants as more American than Americans during a Thursday campaign event in Rock Hill, South Carolina.“We have to find a [amnesty] pathway for dreamers … These kids who come, and they end up doing well. They become American before a lot of Americans become Americans — No, I’m serious, they get in school, they do well, they contribute to the community, they contribute to the country,” he said. Biden’s praise for illegals was tied up with his view of America as a land of working immigrants — rather than of Americans and their children — and with his sympathy for migrants.

Recent polls have shown that most Americans believe that homosexuals are “born that way” rather than become gay as the result of environmental factors. In fact, perpetuating the belief that sexual orientation is innate has been crucial to the gay rights movement. According to the most recent Gallup Poll on the subject, 88 percent of people who believe homosexuals are “born that way” support the legality of same-sex marriage, while only 39 percent of those who believe homosexuality is the result of environmental factors support the legality of same-sex marriage. So, what happens when science proves that homosexuals aren’t “born that way”?
