A description of the T-shirt on the organization’s website encourages supporters to back Trump’s “efforts to help America grow,” despite Greenland’s repeated protestations that it isn’t up for grabs.

The Nevada GOP has its own version of a T-shirt, showing the caricatured countries high-fiving each other. “Greenland! This land is your land, this land is our land,” the front reads, employing the famous Woody Guthrie lyric.

If that was not troubling enough there is also news that Trump’s Greenland idea is garnering some support.

Donald Trump’s left-field idea to buy Greenland has been mocked by everyone from cable pundits to Danish pols — but it’s also given an internal boost to a small network of advocates in and outside the administration who have struggled to get traction for their ideas for boosting America’s ties to the frozen island territory.

Advocates of bolstering U.S. ties to Greenland see it as a way of elbowing out geopolitical rivals, namely China and Russia, that have aggressively targeted the Arctic with military bases, scientific research stations and strategic investments.

But even that now seems more difficult given that the Danish government laughed off the idea of selling the 811,000-square-mile, semi-autonomous territory, and the Greenland premier said the island was “not for sale.” The Trump administration’s outlier position on climate change is another high hurdle, given the growing evidence that Greenland’s vast ice sheets and glaciers are melting at accelerating rates.

But the lonely voices in the administration who are pushing the cause insist that boosting U.S. ties to Greenland is a worthy idea that should be taken seriously. Doing so — let alone annexing Greenland outright — would help America beat China in the race for the Arctic, they say, while expanding domestic access to critical mineral resources.

So I guess they are not satisifed with their plans to rape the shit out of Alaska, they also want to take advantage of the pristine landscape opened up in Greenland by global warming. 

It’s like the Republicans are a bunch of drunken frat boys trying to slip a date rape drug into every country’s plastic red cup of warm beer.

    Here’s one big reason why Trump is having a white-hot meltdown over the Fed not dropping interest rates

    Trump has a personal conflict-of-interest that may be impacting his decisions in his public feud with Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.

    “President Trump stands to save millions of dollars annually in interest on outstanding loans on his hotels and resorts if the Federal Reserve lowers rates as he has been demanding, according to public filings and financial experts,” The Washington Post reported Saturday.

    “In the five years before he became president, Trump borrowed more than $360 million via four loans from Deutsche Bank for his hotels in Washington, D.C., and Chicago, as well his 643-room Doral golf resort in South Florida,” the newspaper reported. “The payments on all four properties vary with interest rate changes, according to Trump’s official financial disclosures. That means he has already benefited from falling interest rates that were spurred in part by a cut the Federal Reserve announced in July, the first in more than a decade — and his payments could drop by millions of dollars more annually if the central bank grants Trump’s wish and further lowers short-term rates, experts said.”

    Trump claims he has ‘absolute right’ to order US companies out of China under 1977 law

      ” He later explained that he was referring to the 1977 International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), and in a Friday tweet wrote: “For all of the Fake News Reporters that don’t have a clue as to what the law is relative to Presidential powers, China, etc., try looking at the Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977. Case closed!”
      The IEEPA, passed in the wake of Watergate and Vietnam, gives Trump “broad authority to regulate a variety of economic transactions following a declaration of national emergency,” according to an analysis by the CRS. Those presidential powers can be used “to deal with any unusual and extraordinary threat….to the national security, foreign policy, or economy of the United States.”

      Under the IEEPA, the President has to consult with Congress before invoking his authority and, after declaring a national emergency, send a report to Congress explaining why.”

    If Denmark did this to a territory of USA, he would have treated it as a hostile act, and invaded.
