Let's Swap San Francisco for Greenland (15)

The Morning Briefing: Let's Swap San Francisco for Greenland

Hear me out...

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to another episode of "Thinking Outside All the Boxes." I'm your host, Stephen Kruiser.

Look, I have never liked the Bay Area. While California's politics may have chased me away, I have always loved everything else about the state, except San Francisco and its environs.

The weather is always awful. The Giants play there. They have a problem with human feces on the sidewalks. The Giants play there. The city launched the public career of Kamala Harris.

The Giants play there.

Now they've decided that some friends of mine are domestic terrorists.

The city has become a festering boil on America. It needs to go.

So let's revisit the acquisition of Greenland. We know that Denmark says the island isn't for sale but -- to paraphrase an old adage -- every kingdom of fourteen people has its price.

Let's offer them a straight-up trade: San Francisco for Greenland.

Denmark can have it all. The overrated bridge that's hidden by fog most of the time. Alcatraz. The tourism money. The Giants. Heck, give 'em the stupid song too, but we're keeping Tony Bennett.

It's not as if San Francisco offers any sort of strategic advantage. The best it can do in defense of the United States is give an invading force syphilis and a nasty case of Hep C.

Ball's in your court, Denmark. Take the money and run.

Regarding CNN's Climate Hoax Megachurch Worship...

What's to write? These people are redefining unhinged fascism every day. I'll just share some of the Twitter reaction.

China tried to buy Greenland in 2017. From a military standpoint it is crucial and also the minerals.
So it isn't surprising that any USA president wants it. In fact, Harry Truman tried in 1946.
There were at least 17, PayPal accounts, to help POTUS buy it, (then I stop counting)

(3:50) President Trump's Greenland bid shows 'art of the deal
#OANews
President Trump suggests Denmark should increase defense spending and boost strategic cooperation with the U.S. amid an ongoing debate over the possible purchase of Greenland.

The Critical Reasons Why Trump Wants to Buy Greenland

Was Greenland “for sale” when the Chinese were shopping in 2017?

When the Greenland proposal first made news, our press immediately decided that the idea was absolutely “absurd”…which fed into the Dane’s worldview. More professional and sober journalists would have perhaps investigated possible motives for purchasing Greenland.

Therefore, it is only when I turned to foreign publications that I had my first clue for a potential reason behind the move. According to the South China Morning Post, Greenland had been seriously courted by China due to its strategic location and its mineral resources

The accelerating polar ice melt has left sparsely populated Greenland, a self-governing part of Denmark, astride what are potentially *major shipping routes and in the crosshairs of intensifying geopolitical competition between superpowers

Greenland Aside, Buying Foreign Land Used to Be Common -

President Donald J. Trump is not the first president to attempt to purchase Greenland from Denmark; Harry Truman tried in 1946, but Denmark wasn’t interested then, either.
