President Donald Trump may soon enough cement his legacy as a historic American President through adding the island of Greenland as a United States territory.
Reporting from the Wall Street Journal Thursday indicates the President is highly interested in acquiring the island. Denmark currently administers the island, which is geographically a part of the North American continent.
The President is said to have been repeatedly suggesting the prospect to his advisors. The United States already has a historic relationship with the island, which houses a major U.S Air Force base. The island, located between Europe and North America in the Arctic Sea, has abundant natural resources and a prime strategic location.
President Trump is slated to visit Denmark next month, and it’s possible real discussions about the idea could come to fruition then.
A purchase of Denmark wouldn’t be entirely unlike President Andrew Johnson’s historic Alaska Purchase from Russia in 1867.
Seeing as Alaska has since become a successful, strategically important, and economically productive American state despite being distant from the American mainland, it’s very possible an integration of Greenland into the United States could be similarly successful.
Greenland is primarily populated by Inuit peoples, who have adapted to life in the island’s harsh arctic climate over many centuries. The territory has had a somewhat tenuous relationship with the Danish government recently, and polling indicates that a majority of Greenlandic people (64%) favor independence.
Joining the United States as a territory could represent a way for the people of Greenland to change their political status without taking the risks of declaring independence as a fully sovereign and new country. The island has a population of approximately 56,000, and is the least densely populated territory on Earth.
Entering the U.S. would provide Greenland’s residents with access to the world’s wealthiest national economic market, and probably provide them a measure of self-government greater than what Denmark can offer.
Many Americans will watch closely to see if President Trump’s potential real estate deal of a lifetime comes to pass.
Churches Report Chicago Officials are Threatening to Bulldoze Their Facilities for Not Complying with COVID-19 Mandates
This is heinously unconstitutional.
The lawyer for two Chicago churches has reported that city officials informed his clients that they would consider bulldozing their facilities if they do not comply with COVID-19 edicts.
Matt Staver, the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, said on Wednesday that the city is classifying his clients as “public nuisances.” He said they were issued a letter declaring that the city “has the power and duty to cause all nuisances affecting the health of the public to be abated.” The letter threatened a “summary abatement,” which would mean the destruction of the facilities without due process.
Staver said during an appearance on the “Todd Starnes Radio Show” that he is seeking an emergency injunction and hopes to take the case to the Supreme Court. The motion for the injunction is headed to the desk of SCOTUS Justice Brett Kavanaugh right now.
Rev. Cristian Ionescu, one of the pastors being represented in this case, also told Starnes that he has received citations from the city for violating COVID-19 policies. Metro Praise International’s Pastor Joe Wyrostek reported receiving the “summary abatement” threatening his facility with destruction if he holds a service with more than 10 people.
“We are very disappointed with all of this, including not being considered as essential in the beginning, as a church,” Wyrostek said to NBC Chicago.
Even as violent crime spikes, Chicago city officials use limited police forces to snoop on churches and enforce shutdown mandates in Christian places of worship. This is part of a nationwide trend of left-wing government bureaucrats using the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse to attack Christianity.
Big League Politics has reported on authorities cracking down on Christians who refuse to surrender their religious liberty due to mass hysteria:
The pastor of a church in Central, La. has returned to the pulpit despite being on house arrest for complications from holding supposedly illegal worship services in contradiction to the governor’s edicts.
Rev. Tony Spell got into words with an anti-Christian protester outside of his Life Tabernacle Church a week ago, which resulted in him being given an ankle monitor after a contentious incident on the road. Regardless of the possible consequences, he was back preaching today while showing off his ankle bracelet in defiance of the consequences.
Spell told his flock that it is a “dirty rotten shame when you’re hiding in America.” His parishioners stand with him fully, singing songs of joy in Christ while waving signs which state: “I stand with Pastor Spell.”
He was released last week and ordered to “refrain from any and all criminal conduct, including but not limited to strictly abiding by the all emergency orders issued by the Governor of the State of Louisiana.” Spell believes that his freedom of religion cannot be abridged by a government edict.
“God gave you an immune system to kill the virus,” Spell said while giving his sermon on Sunday morning. “I’m not going to bind the virus.”
Law enforcement is far from happy that Spell refuses to kneel beneath them as they attempt to enforce the governor’s unlawful orders.
“It will not be up to a judge on whether he’s picked up or not, and what his punishment will be,” Baton Rouge Central Police Chief Roger Corcoran said to TMZ.
“It’s a blatant disrespect to the law and to the judge’s order. It’s further proof Tony Spell is out for himself and has no respect for the law,” Corcoran added.
In addition to charges of aggravated assault and improper backing, Spell also faces six misdemeanor charges for disobeying the edicts of Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards.
In the age of globalist bioterror, practicing Christianity can come at a steep cost.
