I wouldn't be surprised to see this Greenland purchase idea in any notes from Trump's secretive meetings with Putin.

I want the orbs! :lol:

As for Greenland, what can I say? The most powerful nation on Earth is a literally being run by a senile old man who probably wears adult nappies. One day he's going to wake up and decide it's a good idea to nuke Antarctica.

Anyone who thinks Marianne Williamson is a good candidate should go take a long, hard look at themselves.

You just don't want to actualise your spiritual sensibilities and express yourself at a higher level.

ORBGANG welcomes you spirit-comrade

Marianne Williamson is a grifter, she sucks, but she is still in the top half of candidates unironically. It'll never happen, but if it came down to it, it would be better to have our weird crystal aunt in the White House than a private prisons shill, or a pudding-brained old neolib, or one of the soulless cookie-cutter imperialist establishment suits. At least she won't start any ICE crackdowns or wars.

Genuinely reckon she’d be my wife’s preferred candidate. I’ll need to put her onto Williamson’s campaign.

Thank you. It's depressing to get to your 30th birthday and realise you've done nothing with your life.

In all serious though, Williamson is a fraud in the quite literal sense. She has made quite a lot of money out of the bogus self-help industry exploiting the downtrodden, so only a fool would suggest she is actually interested in helping them. In truth she is no different to the usual liberal bullshitters in that she promises to do everything in her power to fight poverty so long as no one actually gets any more money.

An anti-vaxxer too, btw.

Donald Trump confirms interest in buying Greenland in 'large real estate deal'

Mr Trump's interest in the Danish territory emerged this week when he reportedly discussed it in a private meeting with advisers



Donald Trump has confirmed he is interested in buying Greenland, saying it would be "essentially a large real estate deal".

Asked about reports that he was exploring the purchase of the 850,000 sq mile island from Denmark, the US president said he was "looking at it" as "strategically for the US it would be nice".

Mr Trump's interest in the Danish territory emerged this week when he reportedly discussed it in a private meeting with advisers.

Danish politicians poured scorn on the idea, with former prime minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen describing it as an "April Fool's Day joke".

However, that does not appear to have put Mr Trump off.

Speaking to reporters in New Jersey, he said: "It is something we talked about. Denmark essentially owns it, we are very good allies with Denmark, we protect Denmark like we protect large portions of the world.

"The concept came up - strategically it would be interesting. We'll talk to them a little bit, it is not number one on the burner at the minute I can tell you that.

"Alot of things could be done, essentially it is a large real estate deal. It's hurting Denmark very badly because they are losing almost $700m a year carrying it."

America has had an air base in Greenland for decades as part of its global network of missile radars and space surveillance.

The island's foreign ministry tweeted on Friday: "#Greenland is rich in valuable resources such as minerals, the purest water and ice, fish stocks, seafood, renewable energy and is a new frontier for adventure tourism.

"We're open for business, not for sale."

Mr Trump is due to visit Denmark in September as part of a European trip but any attempt to raise the idea of buying the huge island is likely to be shot down.

Before Mr Trump confirmed he was interested in buying Greenland, Soren Espersen, a foreign affairs spokesperson for the Danish People's Party, told broadcaster DR that if he was serious about the idea it would be "final proof that he has gone mad".

"The thought of Denmark selling 50,000 citizens to the United States is completely ridiculous," he added.

Martin Lidegaard, an MP for the Danish Social Liberal Party and former foreign minister, called the idea "a grotesque proposal".

"We are talking about real people and you can't just sell Greenland like an old colonial power," he said.

Look forward to his suggestion of buying the U.K. next year.

Or how about the US can restart the British Empire and we can then make sure they can't elect anyone quite as shitty as Trump ever again as we get veto power over who they elect.
I'm sure the republicans won't make a fuss and we promise not to ban all guns for at least a week after we take over so that's a compromise and a half.

I can spare £50 to buy half of one of the more rubbish states.

I doubt it. We’ll end up beholden to them but with less rights than Puerto Rico.
