Donald Trump, Please Buy Greenland

Donald, do it. Buy that icy rock from right under those Danes. Do what you do best and dunk on every single one of the people who think this is a misguided and stupid idea – because it isn’t.

There will be many detractors along the way but you are strong enough to face them all. There will be so many know-it-alls calling you an imperialist and bemoaning the expense on the ‘backs’ of the American taxpayer. And you know what? It doesn’t matter.

This isn’t imperialism, this is future urban planning. This isn’t poor spending, it’s smart hedging on some pretty big asset class bets. Land, metals, and missiles are what an empire needs to sustain its power. Trump knows this and China definitely knows it. There’s a reason why Beijing has had its roving eye on Greenland lately.

There could very well come a time when we actually need Greenland and the time to buy it is now.

Why I Read Shooters’ Manifesto

Society should encourage people to read the manifestos of shooters
Spencer Kellogg | @Spencer_Kellogg

When I was a child, my grandfather had a replica work from the French Painter Paul Gauguin that sat above the oven in his kitchen. It read “D’où Venons Nous / Que Sommes Nous / Où Allons Nous.” I couldn’t read French then and I still can’t today but I got the gist. “Why?” Gauguin wanted to know why? What is our purpose? What are we doing here? And where is it all going?

That phrase has always haunted me. I have, within me, a desperate need to understand the motives of things unknown; specifically killers. I’m not the only one who feels this way either. Flick on the TV and you will find 24-hour reruns of Law and Order across multiple networks. When we are alone and under the covers of our well-worn beds, we all want to know why, especially when it comes to murder. For me, the most haunting questions arise from those events found in real life.

Warren Neglects Trump’s Name in Democratic Debates

Elizabeth Warren in the Democratic Debate
Dane Larsen | @_danebailey

Elizabeth Warren undoubtedly swept the floor with other the other candidates in the first night of the Democratic Primary Debates. Warren, a past Law School Professor at Rutgers and Senator from Massachusetts, brought out a shimmering light of progressivism. In a cast of Spanish-speaking and buzzword-feeding postulants grasping at straws, Warren held her own. The Congresswoman stuck to her campaign promises in a clear and concise tone.

President Trump Declares Trade War on Everybody

donald trump trade war tariffs
Garrett Summers | @g_summ300

The Trump administration has been a huge advocate for tariffs. Recently, the administration increased them on Chinese imports. The administration has also removed India from special trade status. This means Indian imports will be subject to billions of dollars in tariffs. The president further threatened to levy tariffs against Mexico if the government does not do more to stop the influx of migrants crossing into the U.S. illegally. But China and Mexico are the #1 and #3 importers to the U.S., respectively. Trump, with his trade war, will raise prices for the average consumer.
