Gun control is a misnomer, because it WON'T work. It's the criminal that should be controlled. How much tax payers' money would YOU have them squander to show zero results? Criminals can make their own guns.

Danish PM says Trump's idea of selling Greenland to U.S. is 'absurd'

COPENHAGEN — Greenland is not for sale and the idea of selling it to the United States is absurd, Denmark’s prime minister said on Sunday after an economic adviser to President Donald Trump confirmed the U.S. interest in buying the world’s largest island.
“Greenland is not for sale. Greenland is not Danish. Greenland belongs to Greenland. I strongly hope that this is not meant seriously,” Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen told the newspaper Sermitsiaq during a visit to Greenland.
Trump confirmed to reporters on Sunday that he had recently discussed the possibility, though he said such a move was not an immediate priority.
“The concept came up and …strategically it’s interesting,” Trump told reporters from the tarmac in Morristown, New Jersey, as he prepared to board Air Force One.
“It is not No.1 on the burner; I can tell you that.”
Trump is due to visit Copenhagen early next month, when the Arctic will be on the agenda in meetings with Frederiksen and Prime Minister Kim Kielsen of Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory.
White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Sunday initially confirmed media reports earlier in the week that Trump had privately discussed with his advisers the idea of buying Greenland.
“I don’t want to predict an outcome. I’m just saying the president, who knows a thing or two about buying real estate, wants to take a look at a Greenland purchase,” Kudlow told Fox News.
Kudlow said the situation was “developing” and noted that U.S. President Harry Truman also had wanted to buy Greenland.
“And Denmark owns Greenland, Denmark is an ally, Greenland is a strategic place, up there. And they’ve got a lot of valuable minerals,” Kudlow added.
A defence treaty between Denmark and the United States dating back to 1951 gives the U.S. military rights over the Thule Air Base in northern Greenland.
Greenland, located between the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans, is dependent on Danish economic support. It handles its own domestic affairs while Copenhagen looks after defence and foreign policy.
“It’s an absurd discussion, and Kim Kielsen has of course made it clear that Greenland is not for sale. That’s where the conversation ends,” Frederiksen told the Danish broadcaster DR.
On Friday, Greenland’s foreign minister, Ane Lone Bagger, had told Reuters: “We are open for business, but we’re not for sale.”

It all depends what price he can get it for. Seward purchased Alaska for $7.3 million. Given inflation if Trump could get Greenland for $35 million it might be a good deal.

And yet in places in the world gun control is practiced in some form, it works.

What won't work is continuing this belief those in the US have that if they have a gun, they have power. This mentality that they NEED guns to protect themselves from, well, everyone whether friend or foe. A gun in the US is nothing more than a child's soother or security blanket, a 'binkie' if you will, meaning they WON'T address the real problems. After all, why bother with the criminals when everyone has a gun to protect against them? Why bother with mental illness because if the ill person gets a gun and shoots up people, people can now retaliate against him, etc.

That even the majority of US citizens want SOMETHING of gun control vs. the nothing there is now means they're willing to use their taxes to do something more than nothing.

WASHINGTON — U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday called off a visit to Denmark scheduled for early September after the country’s prime minister rebuffed his idea of purchasing Greenland.
“Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time,” Trump said in a post on Twitter.
“The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct. I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!”

A White House official said Trump had dropped the Sept. 2-3 stop in Denmark, a NATO ally. Trump had been due to discuss the Arctic in meetings in Copenhagen with Frederiksen, who took office in June, and Prime Minister Kim Kielsen of Greenland.
He is due to visit Poland on Aug. 31.
Frederiksen said on Sunday the idea of selling Greenland to the United States was absurd after an economic adviser to Trump confirmed U.S. interest in buying the world’s largest island.
“Greenland is not for sale. Greenland is not Danish. Greenland belongs to Greenland. I strongly hope that this is not meant seriously,” Frederiksen told the newspaper Sermitsiaq during a visit to Greenland.

We have repressive hand gun laws in Canada and it most certainly is not working here. All it does is make life difficult for law abiding taxpayers that want to own a handgun. None of the weekly Surrey shootings are done with legal guns.

I kind of thought Trump's offer to buy Greenland made a lot of sense, but with the mentality here I didn't make too much noise about it. Lots of opportunity for employment there with the current trend of polar warming, there could be an abundance of landscaping jobs. Huge potential for supplying bottled water to the rest of the planet, greatly reducing the amount going into the ocean.

The full celebrity cast was revealed on Good Morning America on Wednesday, with the former NBA star and Spicer, U.S. President Donald Trump’s ex-Press Secretary, both due to show off their dancing skills.
Spicer, who is launching his own political communications firm, was announced on GMA, “From the Briefing Room”, and he admitted that he’s not much of a dancer, comparing his moves to a “steam roller.” He added his strategy is to “work really, really, really hard.”
Retired basketball star Odom will swap the court for the dance floor alongside celebrities; Christie Brinkley, The Bachelorette lead Hannah Brown, Queer Eye star Karamo Brown, country singer Lauren Alaina, Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek, NFL legend Ray Lewis, former Fifth Harmony singer Ally Brooke, Kenan and Kel star Kel Mitchell, and The Office actress Kate Flannery.
DWTS host Tom Bergeron told GMA changes will come to the upcoming competition.
“Some of our pros don’t know who they’re dancing with this season,” he explained, adding the partnerships will be announced to the public in the season premiere.
Season 28 of Dancing with the Stars premieres Sept. 16.

Shock in Denmark after Trump, spurned over Greenland, cancels visit

(REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque)
COPENHAGEN — Danes expressed shock and disbelief on Wednesday over U.S. President Donald Trump’s cancellation of a state visit to Denmark after its prime minister rebuffed his interest in purchasing Greenland.
Trump’s proposal at first elicited incredulity and humor from politicians in Denmark, a NATO ally of the United States, with former premier Lars Lokke Rasmussen saying: “It must be an April Fool’s Day joke.”
But the mood turned to shock when Trump called off the Sept. 2-3 visit after Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen called his idea of the United States buying Greenland, an autononomus Danish territory, “absurd.”
“Total chaos with @realDonaldTrump and cancellation of state visit to Denmark. It has gone from a big opportunity for strengthened dialog between allies to a diplomatic crisis,” former foreign minister Kristian Jensen, a member of the opposition Liberal Party, said on Twitter.
“Everyone should know Greenland is not for sale,” Jensen said of the world’s largest island, which has considerable mineral wealth and a U.S. military presence at the Thule Air Base under a U.S.-Danish treaty dating to 1951.
Frederiksen, who had been due to hold talks with Trump in Copenhagen, was unavailable for a comment as she was traveling after a visit to Greenland and Iceland earlier this week.
She said earlier this week Greenland was “not for sale” and she hoped Trump’s proposal was “not meant seriously.”
“SHOCKING”
“It is very, very shocking, when it is about a very close ally and a good friend,” Soren Espersen, the foreign affairs spokesman for the hard right Danish People’s Party, told Danish news agency Ritzau.
He described Trump’s cancellation as an offence to Queen Margrethe, Denmark’s head of state, and that he did not expect another visit by the U.S. president would happen.
Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were formally invited to Denmark by Queen Margrethe in July.
“It shows why we now more than ever should consider (fellow) European Union countries as our closest allies. The man is unpredictable,” said Morten Ostergaard, leader of the Danish Social Liberal Party. “Reality surpasses imagination.”
Trump, whose “America First” policies have resulted in strained relations with the EU over trade and other issues, said on Sunday that a U.S. purchase of Greenland would be “a large real estate deal,” though not an immediate priority.
“Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday.
Greenland, which is gaining attention from world powers including China, Russia and the United States due to its strategic location and mineral resources, is self-governing but depends on Denmark for economic support.
Aaja Chemnitz Larsen, a lawmaker from Greenland’s opposition party Inuit Ataqatigiit party, said she was not surprised at the cancellation but it underlined the territory’s importance.
“The U.S. is an interesting ally for Greenland, but we also wish for Greenland to remain in the union we have today,” she told Reuters.

Trump says he is seriously looking at ending birthright citizenship

WASHINGTON — U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that his administration was seriously looking at ending the right of citizenship for U.S.-born children of noncitizens and people who immigrated to the United States illegally.
“We’re looking at that very seriously, birthright citizenship, where you have a baby on our land, you walk over the border, have a baby – congratulations, the baby is now a U.S. citizen. … It’s frankly ridiculous,” Trump told reporters outside the White House.
Trump has made cracking down on immigration a central plank of his presidency and re-election campaign, but many of the administration’s sweeping rule changes and executive orders have been stymied by the courts.
The Republican president had told Axios news website in October 2018 that he would end “birthright citizenship” through an executive order.
Experts have said such a move would run afoul of the U.S. Constitution.

‘NOBODY SPEAKS FOR THE UNITED STATES’: Trump accuses France’s Macron of sending ‘mixed signals’ to Iran
The Constitution’s 14th Amendment, passed after the Civil War to ensure that black Americans had full citizenship rights, granted citizenship to “all persons born or naturalized in the United States.”
It has since routinely been interpreted to grant citizenship to most people born in the United States, whether or not their parents are American citizens or legally living in the United States.

A Florida man who was found to have ecstasy pills shaped like U.S. President Donald Trump’s head has been charged with unlawful possession of controlled substances, according Pinellas County court documents.
Brendan Dolan-King, 23, was charged on Friday in Clearwater, Florida after police searched his apartment in June and discovered fentanyl and five orange pills shaped like Trump’s head, which were later found to contain the hallucinogen MDMA, or ecstasy.
The confiscation resembles one in Indiana in 2018, when the Lafayette Courier-Journal reported that police patrolling an interstate highway seized an orange tablet in the shape of the 45th U.S. president’s head, with his lips puckered on the front and “Great Again” printed on the back.
As many as 5,000 such pills were seized in Germany in 2017, NBC News reported.
