DATELINE: More Folly from Trump!
Look to the Top of the World!
If you haven’t heard of Trump’s Folly, you may be about to find the history repeating itself.
Abraham Lincoln’s Secretary of State was William Seward and John Wilkes Booth tried to have him assassinated along with the president, But Seward’s real claim to fame was Seward’s Folly: he paid a couple of million dollars for Alaska .
As you might expect, the public went nuts like the participants of a Trump rally because this didn’t make America great. You just wasted tax-payer money on an iceberg.
History has vindicated Seward. The natural resources of Alaska more than pay for themselves.
Now someone in the Trump administration has the bogus idea that Dwight Eisenhower bought Alaska, which may be more telling about the history levels in the White House today; however, the president now wants to buy Greenland.
Erik the Red went to Greenland about 1000 years ago and saw the ice–and to market his new real estate, he gave it a fake name: Greenland.
In case you’re wondering, part of Greenland is under 2 miles of glacier, But Trump think it’s a good putting green. For his game of miniature golf.
Greenland is presently owned by Denmark and Trump wants to make them an offer they can’t refuse .
Historians will tell you Greenland was the place where the Vikings met their end when a mini-Ice Age occurred in the 1300s.
A documentary called Secrets of the Dead tells about the lost Vikings. Today about 50,000 Inoits live on Greenland. There are no roads and no economy so to speak.
It’s not part of Canada but a separate island with the Atlantic on one side in the Arctic Ocean on the other .
It’s perfect for a Trump resort hotel. If Jeffrey Epstein were still alive, he probably would want to build a little bungalow there .
So Trump’s folly maybe coming down the pike. If we recall correctly, an iceberg broke off Greeneland over 100 years ago and hit the Titanic .
The next iceberg you see could have Donald Trump’s name on it .
