Bomb Korea, first strike. Iran crisis: Boris Johnson's father offers PM tanker solution

Nuke Korea immediately.
Hollywood Jews are in danger of nuclear holocaust
will poison the Los Angeles basin for centuries with nuclear waste.
Uninhabitable.
Bad enough already.

Korea has nukes, missiles, submarines.
Could easily float nukes a few miles offshore USA mainland.
Cannot miss a huge target like Hollywood Los Angeles even with stupid primitive Korean missiles.
Could even float a bomb into Marina Del Rey South Central Los Angeles.
May already have bombs stationed in WTC2 NYC.

Also nuke any internet connection to Asia, China, Korea, etc.
Great Wall of USA.
No internet connection to the important 48 USA states
from any foreign country.
All communications overseas by wooden sail boat organic renewable wind power transportation.

Iran is obsolete.
Nobody cares about Iran, weak, impotent.
China can take care of Iran
to make sure Iran oil gets thru.

By nuking North Korea
Iran will be on notice to abandon nukes,
and shut up
and pump oil.

Liberal news media should not be allowed to mention Iran or anything in the middle east.
Withdraw all USA troops from the Middle east.
Station them along the Mexican border.
Invade any shit hole country sending refugees.
Regime change.
Move refugees to Gaza for safe keeping until Regime change is stabilized.
Move the UN to Gaza
Move the World bank to Gaza.
Nuke any internet connections to the middle east.

Clean up the 48 states USA MAGA.

Iran crisis: Boris Johnson's father offers PM tanker solution 'Easy peasy!'

STANLEY Johnson, father of new Prime Minister Boris Johnson,

has claimed his son will solve the crisis over Iran's seizure of UK-flagged oil tanker the Stena Impero "easy peasy" -

by swapping it with an Iranian vessel boarded by Royal Marines off the coast of Gibraltar earlier this month.

However, his son may have been less than impressed to find Mr Johnson Senior made his remarks during an appearance on Iran's Press TV,

two days before Britain's new leader criticised Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn

for speaking to the Tehran-based state television network.

Mr Johnson Sr was interviewed after his son beat Jeremy Hunt to the Tory leadership on Tuesday,

stressing: I'm very much looking forward to him building bridges with Iran.

"Iran to him will mean Darius, Xerxes - you know,

Iran means so much to him.

That area better than most around there,

Arkansas huge rice fields, high quality that I use a lot
 and ducks on those fields, migration flyway.

13 year old boys are not militia, should not have guns.
If they flunk out of school they should get a job in their homeland.

Militiamen should arrest any non-militia with guns or arrows.
Seize any property associated with them.
Jail them in Guantanamo Bay until they emigrate to their homeland.

Militiamen get to keep any weapons or property seized,
plus tax Rothschild globalists to pay $1,000,000 bounty per vermin emigrated or executed.

standing desk: celebrity tour War Memoirs, future war preparations

Dear Professor Kaufman,

I set up a standing desk
in addition to my sitting desk.

So I do not have to sit so much.

Sitting is the new smoking.
Humans not designed to sit so much.

I need to keep moving to keep my blood circulating.
legs go dead.
had this problem my whole life.

I also use a walking desk in the university library.
For reading,
hard to write while walking.

I have read phone while walking in gym too.
Or listen to stuff.

I think you can dictate into a phone while walking
then have the phone send you a text message with the dictation.
Have not tried.
may need to buy some software.

I also am going back to writing in notebooks
pencil and paper
old fashioned but it works.

You could hire a student cheap
to convert hand written notes into computer text files.

There are also old fashioned type writers.
My penmanship is not so great, but typing is easy to read.

Looking for more options to do more and more work offline
without damaging my health.

Using elevators to get downstairs so I do not trip and fall downstairs too

Shooting at Gilroy Garlic Festival Gun Free Zone, Fat cop stabbed in Italy rich 1% hotel

Rothschild laughing while fleecing the sheeple shooting at each other.
Guns, shootings
distracts from accounting.
Trillionaires get rich off selling guns and shootings, big pharma, medical industrial complex, security industrial complex, chain link fence sales,…
All by design.

Rich will get richer until there is accounting and understanding of accounting.
News is not accounting, but distracts from accounting.
You cannot fool all of the people all of the time.

News not mentioning Gilroy shooter Iranian Italian multicultural milennial
Muslim tendencies killers now turbo-charged by marijuana or worse.

News media so often report movies as news, actors, singers, entertainers telling jokes, between drug ads happy addicts cancer survivors…
All fake news, novels, fictions.

News media gets confused as to what is fake and what is real.
Designed to mislead and entertain the sheeple.
But in the process confuse themselves.
And get shot themselves.
Not grounded in reality.
Liberalism mental illness cannot be fixed.
California is doomed.

In finance you do not buy what you are selling to sheeple or you will go broke too.
Called drinking your own cool-aide after the Jonestown suicide mass murders.
————————

LA Times, ABC, CNN, and other Establishment sources took over two hours to begin reporting any details.

German Press reported details while shooters were still active.

US Establishment press reports hours later Police shot shooter within 1.5 minutes of shooting.

Press in US must wait till they receive the "official" story from LE or politicoes.

I remember being the first responder on two FUSD burglaries.

Later Fresno PD arrived.

Local affiliate news reported misinformation regarding break in and what was taken.

I contacted the news.

They were not interested.

Spokesperson told me they had a "pipeline" to Fresno PD and were not interested in my name or my information.

Same with my partner who had also been the first on the scene.

That was twenty years ago.

On the Gilroy shootings a witness stated the security was poor.

Security at gate looked into her friends purse but not hers.

Kamala Harris has already begun proposing addition gun ban legislation despite the Festival being a posted "Gun Free Zone."

Effect nationwide will be to display the absurdity of gun free zones.

Alleged weapon could not be sneaked in a purse but was a large semiauto rifle.

If California is not going to allow individual self defense stay locked at home and play video games or move to a Constitutional jurisdiction.

Ron

Skylair and I went to the garlic festival a few times.

It was surrounded by about a six foot chain length fence apparently the shooter cut through.

He was near row of port a potties that I used always in same place.

Always cops everywhere and on horses, such a stupid place to shoot up.

Ruthe

From: Ron

The entire gun issue is part of the larger and growing civil discord and polarization.

Progressives (Marxists) desperately want to disarm the deplorables.

I agree with Joe.

Deplorables in flyover country have already been carpet bombed and softened up with
pesticides,
GMO,
junk foods,
drugs,
booze
meth.
Cell phone radiation,
etc.

The shocking radical Democratic platform cannot proceed without civilian disarmament.

Dems also know they have few armed allies if they have to accomplish disarmament forcibly.

This is in part what is fueling the Progressive threats and rage as they view their political options dwindle.

fluid gender hormones vs modern chemicals

I remember studying paramecium under the microscope in high school.
My vision was strong enough to see it without microscope.

Teacher said it had 23 genders.
Any gender can mate with any other gender and spread genetic material.

Humans all have both estrogen and testosterone in varying quantities.
it is a sliding scale.
females have lots of estrogen.
males have lots of testosterone.

varies by age and diet.
elderly reduced gender hormones.

Lots of estrogen in hamburgers
cow meat
female animals.

many plastics contain estrogen type chemicals

lots of chemicals nobody knows what they do everywhere.
Clothes
mattress
furniture
food packaging
air
water
everywhere!

thus much gender confusion among junk food eaters and shoppers.

and other strange modern diseases
dementia
cancer
etc.

Judge strikes down penalties for local governments that pass gun-control laws



From: Ron

https://www.tampabay.com/florida-politics/buzz/2019/07/28/judge-strikes-down-penalties-for-local-governments-that-pass-gun-control-laws/

Eric,

If this is what you are talking about a lower judge ruled that a city or county official cannot be fined or disciplined for passing a local ordnance that defies Florida State gun laws.

Florida has been a pro gun state but Progressives are seeking to restrict guns.

Same thing happens in Progressive Austin.

Every 2 years when the Texas state legislature meets they shoot down the Progressive Austin municipal laws.

A higher court will reverse this.

To not do so would open the door to local jurisdictions enacting laws that violate any state or Federal law on anything.

Progressives have a history of simply ignoring laws they dont like.

Get a state CCW in Cali and try carrying in SF.

We are also starting to see conservative jurisdictions ignoring unconstitutional blue state laws.

Recently Needles, Calif. declared themselves a Second Amendment sanctuary city.

Shooting at Gilroy Garlic Festival Gun Free Zone, Fat cop stabbed in Italy rich 1% hotel

I stop every trip thru Gilroy and buy garlic.
Eat at least 1 clove of raw garlic daily for health.
No festival needed attracting large crowds, spread diseases, burn fossil fuels driving cooking,…

Drive thru Gilroy up 280 cut over to 1 SSF and across the Golden Gate to Oregon Beaches end of the world.
Cool summer breezes all summer vast quantities of fresh water.
Oregon Washington
Remote rugged least populated,
least polluted,
best summer weather,
top quality of life quadrant of the USA mainland.

Big fat cop stabbed to death in Italy.
Rich 1% expensive hotel.
Fat cop cannot stop skinny addicts.
rich gay teenage Marijuana smokers,
cocaine users with dementia from San Francisco California.

Must stay skinny and run fast to get away from knife.
Skinnies can easily kill fatties to slow to get away.

Guns are not a defensive weapon except at outdoor festivals, etc. with sufficient distance to draw and aim and fire.
Knife kills guns in most cases.
Cane longer than knife will kill the knife.

Guns great for shooting up gun free zones set up by idiots wanting headlines in favor of gun free zones!

Gun free zones a magnet for shooters.
Gun free zones designed to kill!
Fat folks cannot run away fast enough, obesity conspiracy.

If defender pulls gun to shoot back assault rifle will see target not running away
shooter gets a "free shot" fatal while defender trying to aim.

Mexicans return to Mexico homeland where they are safe.
All Spanish speakers return to Spanish speaking country.

Dangerous addicts with guns funded by Rothschild conspirators will kill off
black Baltimore negroes,
brown California latinoes,
fat people who cannot run,
etc.

Fake news disinformation of all sorts trying to disarm the population and cause obesity, dementia, diabetes,...

German press reporting it.

They say the festival is a yearly event since 1979 and it is a ....you guessed it....a 'gun free zone' !

Details are still sketchy !

celebrity tour War Memoirs, future war preparations

Dear Professor Kaufman,

You could use your celebrity status
to make further tours of military bases
such as Pensacola, Miramar, etc.

Give a speech on how it was back then.
Show your movie
Sell copies of your movie
Give away autographed copies of your movie.

Write a book of memoirs.
Lots of book publishers nowadays and it is cheap per book in volume.
Up I-5 in Centralia Washington state is Gorham press, one of the biggest.
Mark Twain and numerous authors self published their books.
Copyright Library of Congress.

Can sell the book/movie,
or give it away to the troops.

Looks like war with Iran soon.
Troops need preparation and support.

Looks like war with North Korea soon.
N Korea has nukes, missiles, and now submarines.

California Large cities could all be taken out by 1 submarine.
North Korea must be defeated ASAP.

My fathers ship was almost sunk in WWII by submarine
hiding outside Golden Gate Bridge San Francisco.
2 torpedoes went right by his boat but the sub escaped pitch black night.
Ships could be highlighted against the lights of San Francisco

My great great grandfather 14 years old boat sunk Farallone islands outside San Francisco after sailing around south America from England.
He survived and saved a lady and moved to Washington DC.

Revolution to stop Kansas broke work hard white trash diary

Sheeple brains are fried by electronics and junk food sugar inflammation.

Marx complained about religion being the opiate of the masses
leading to learned helplessness
sheeple learn to accept their subservient fate.
USA now has real opium, opioids, marijuana, and other drugs in vast quantity
to exacerbate electronics and junk food to numb and kill the sheeple.

Sheeple cannot start a revolution at all, much less a successful revolution.

Everything sheeple think they know is wrong, electronics dis-information.

Sheeple don't know who to shoot at,
Sheeple will shoot at each other as desired by elites.
Divide and conquer, tribes of Black White Yellow Brown Red folk, Muslim, Christian, Jew, communists, socialists, capitalists, libertarians, languages, states, etc.

Sheeple do not even know a few dozen trillionaires control the world economy
by fiat money and bribe the billionaires and millionaires to exterminate the sheeple.
Sheeple do not know enough, brain dead,
to read books of economic statistics to figure out how this is done.
Vast ignorance.

Sheeple think the ruling elites need USA $$$ as a world reserve currency
when a major function of those reserves is to pay for extermination of the sheeple.
Pay for your own extermination!
Not a penny of USA$ needs to leave the USA.

Sheeple cannot pass freshman accounting at University of Texas at Austin the #1 fraud accounting school in USA, supposedly.
Weeder class to get rid of idiots most colleges with hundreds of students in the class.
You will have to know a lot more than that to figure out what is going on in the world economy,
at least 5 years full time study.
Test scores falling as more debt STEM degrees credentials pushed.

You can probably find classes in inequality now, and related issues have long been discussed in heterodox economics, etc.
Must search and move to find the best such classes and books in the library.

Social class was discussed in my freshman sociology class.
professor quizzed us and pointed out that we were probably lower middle or upper lower,
after writing UU LU UM LM UL LL on the board.
Constant arrogance from educated elites on the white trash in California colleges in those days.

Inequality pros and cons my freshman economics class.
Bias was towards inequality being good,
and judging from the okies I grew up with that seemed correct at the time.
And we did not even get into the dust bowl and other problems okies created state of denial.

My high school classmate a working prostitute a few blocks east of the high school
okie neighborhood with a few Mexicans worst area of town
where I delivered newspapers on route 4 my first job.
Okie patrons come in cars 4-6 at a time.
Negro slums probably worse.

There will not be any successful revolution from that mess, ignorant masses,
against ruling elites now with robots, armed drones and electronic surveillance 24x7.
Guns make noise and flash heat and smoke that can zero in the drone for kills.
If you shoot you are dead.
Learn to throw spears?

Violence will kill off sheeple faster than junk food
and will not hurt the ruling elite trillionaires.

The pen is mightier than the sword,
the solution is to find out what is going on in accounting and how the economy works,
and to write a book on how to change the electronic accounting system
and business operations
so the economy does not require direction by trillionaire ruling elites to function.

From: Ron

Good post.

Social class is seldom discussed in the Western world probably because it would result in a
bifurcation of the haves and have nots
with a finger pointed to the machinations of the elite.

Instead emphasis on gender (1700 varieties),
race,
and sexual orientation

will keep the lower classes divided and

competing for bigger slices of government cheese.

Notice that political and corporate class are daily observed violating their own themes.

Examples include Sanders, Warren, and Hillary paying men more than women,
paying less than minimum wage,
heavily armed security details in otherwise gun free zones.

Regardless of the elite emphasis on programs dividing the underclass the advent of social media,

and the Internet are helping to create the next bifurcation between the haves and the have nots regardless of other differences.

This happens about every 300+ years.

Late 1700s the American and French Revolutions.

Before that in 1381 it was the Peasants Rebellion in large part caused by attempts at collecting unpayable taxes levied after the 100 Years War between England and France.

After 20 years of neocon / neoliberal wars of private profit

that Marie Antionette moment is again rapidly approaching.

Just my thoughts,

Ron

Heartland: A Memoir of Working Hard and Being Broke in the Richest Country on Earth

is a non-fiction book by journalist Sarah Smarsh.

The book contains events from her life
and the lives of her relatives

focuses on cycles of poverty and social class in U.S. state of Kansas.

Contents

Smarsh begins the book by focusing on previous generations of her family,
each of them facing hardships due to poverty.

Her maternal grandmother Betty, for example, moves far and frequently to escape difficult situations, layoffs, abusive men, and violent neighborhoods.

Betty's seventh husband Arnie owned a farm,
finally offering Betty some security.

Though they struggle to make enough money,
Sarah has fond memories of playing and working hard on their farm.

Sarah's father, Nick, owns a foundation-laying business that evaporates when construction slows during the economic downturn in the early 1980s.

Growing up in poverty on a Kansas farm,
Sarah maintains a mixture of pride in her family's hard work and
shame that the U.S. heaps on poor people,
having fallen behind in a "supposed meritocracy."

Sarah is able to the break cycles of addiction,
teen pregnancy,
and lack of education
that have kept previous generations of her family in poverty,
and she gets good grades,
eventually going to college and later pursuing a teaching and writing career.

She notes, however, that she can only do so because some in previous generations worked hard to break these cycles despite great hardship.

For instance, she credits steady affirmation from her grandparents,
fewer changes of residence than either of her parents,
and being the only female in her family with a father who was neither violent nor abusive.

Themes

Heartland's main theme is social class in the United States.

Throughout the book, Smarsh identifies systemic obstacles facing the poor in the United States,
a culture where the importance of social class is often dismissed or de-emphasized.

The poor, as a result, are treated as invisible or shamed for their condition.

Smarsh shifts between her personal story and the national laws that had an impact on her and her family,
illustrating each policy's effect on individuals in poverty.

Smarsh argues that belief in the American Dream

adds to the denial of the problem of social class

and leads to the continued oppression of those in poverty.

"The Smarshes give up their bodies to the American Dream,
raising your crops and
butchering your meat.

The wages for that labor are chronic stress,
strained relationships and
physical decline."

Smarsh draws special attention to the suffering and the strength of women in poverty,

Hardships the child might have faced

Reception

Heartland received positive reviews,
critics praising its boldness and insight.

The book does not fit neatly into binary political categories,
offering neither affirmation to urban liberals
nor rural "hagiography" to conservatives:

Never saccharine
or self-deluding.

Tough, no-nonsense woman telling truth, and telling it hard."

breaks
"the national silence that hangs over the lives of the poor."

The Columbia Journal praises Smarsh's prose for maintaining
"an element of regional diction that permeates much of America's best literature.

Her plain language describe both Smarsh's family's specificities and also
broader truths."

Heartland was a finalist for the National Book Award for nonfiction in 2018

If democrats don't like facebook then they had 8 years obama who let the facebook russian fiasco get established.
Russians have been a problem for decades,
USA probably worse on influencing elections and regime change abroad.
Pot calling the kettle black.

Suspect democrats being paid by facebook and big tech.
Like in California.

Arrest all communists and remove them from the continent or shoot them.

Stop climate change by reducing the population of evil parasites.

Remove Russians from USA and cut all internet connections to Russia, China, Asia, Europe, Mexico,…
Great Wall of America.

Communism is not a Native American religion.
There was no big government until overpopulation big agriculture environmental destruction.

This fine should be divided up and given to all users of Facebook.

The users are the victims not the government so why should they get the benefits?

Or is this a bait and switch scheme where the fine is theoretical and Zuckerberg pays nothing.

=============

Europeans became aware of Greenland's existence, probably in the early 10th century, when Gunnbjörn Ulfsson, 
sailing from Norway to Iceland, 
was blown off course by a storm and sighted some islands off Greenland. 

During the 980s, 
explorers led by Erik the Red set out from Iceland and reached the southwest coast of Greenland, 
found the region uninhabited, 
and subsequently settled there. 

Erik named the island Greenland
 (Grœnland in Old Norse, Grænland in modern Icelandic, Grønland in modern Danishand Norwegian) -
 in effect as a marketing device.

 Both the Book of Icelanders (Íslendingabók, a medieval account of Icelandic history from the 12th century onward) and the 

Saga of Eric the Red (Eiríks saga rauða, a medieval account of his life and of the Norse settlement of Greenland) 

state that Erik said that it would encourage people to go there that the land had a good name."

According to the sagas, the Icelanders had exiled Erik the Red for three years for committing murder  circa 982. 

He sailed to Greenland, where he explored the coastline and claimed certain regions as his own. 

He then returned to Iceland to persuade people to join him in establishing a settlement on Greenland. 

The Icelandic sagas say that 25 ships left Iceland with Erik the Red in 985, 
and that only 14 of them arrived safely in Greenland.

This date has been approximately confirmed by radiocarbon dating of remains at the first settlement at Brattahlid (now Qassiarsuk), which yielded a date of about 1000.

 According to the sagas, it was also in the year 1000 that Erik's son, Leif Eirikson,
 left the settlement to explore the regions around Vinland, 
which historians generally assume to have been located in what is now Newfoundland.

The Norse established settlements along Greenland's fjords.

 Excavations have shown that the fjords at that time were surrounded by forests of 4- to 6-metre tall birch trees and by hills covered with grass and willow brush.

The Norse probably cleared the landscape by felling trees to use as building material and fuel, 
and by allowing their sheep and goats to graze there in both summer and winter.

The Norse settled in three separate locations in south-western Greenland: 
the larger Eastern Settlement, 
the smaller Western Settlement, 
and the still smaller Middle Settlement (often considered part of the Eastern one). 

Estimates put the combined population of the settlements at their height between 2,000 and 10,000, 
with more recent estimates trending toward the lower figure. 

Archeologists have identified the ruins of approximately 620 farms: 
500 in the Eastern Settlement, 
95 in the Western Settlement, and 
20 in the Middle.

The economy of the Norse Greenlanders depended on a combination of pastoral farming with hunting and some fishing.

 Farmers kept cattle, sheep and goats - shipped into the island - 
for their milk, cheese and butter, 
while most of the consumed meat came from hunted caribou and seals.

 Both individual farmers and groups of farmers organised summer trips to the more northerly Disko Bay area 

where they hunted walruses, narwhals and polar bears for their skins, hides and ivory. 

Besides being used to make garments and shoes,
 these resources also functioned as a form of currency, 
as well as making up the most important export commodities.

The settlements carried on a trade in ivory from walrus tusks with Europe, as well as exporting rope, sheep, seals, wool and cattle hides (according to one 13th-century account). 

They depended on Iceland and Norway for iron tools, wood (especially for boat building, although they may also have obtained wood from coastal Labrador - Markland), supplemental foodstuffs, and religious and social contacts. 

Trade ships from Iceland and Norway traveled to Greenland every year and would sometimes overwinter in Greenland. 

Beginning in the late-13th century, laws required all ships from Greenland to sail directly to Norway. 

The climate became increasingly colder in the 14th and 15th centuries, during the period of colder weather known as the Little Ice Age.

In 1126 the Roman Catholic church founded a diocese at Garðar (now Igaliku). 

It was subject to the Norwegian archdiocese of Nidaros (now Trondheim); at least five churches in Norse Greenland are known from archeological remains. 

In 1261 the population accepted the overlordship of the King of Norway, although it continued to have its own law. In 1380 the Norwegian kingdom entered into a personal union with the Kingdom of Denmark. After initially thriving, the Norse settlements in Greenland declined in the 14th century. 

The Norse abandoned the Western Settlement around 1350. In 1378 there was no longer a bishop at Garðar. In 1402-1404, the Black Death
hit Iceland for the first time and killed approximately half the population there - but there is no evidence that it reached Greenland.

 The last written record of the NorseGreenlanders documents a marriage in 1408 at Hvalsey Church, whose ruins are the best-preserved of the Norse buildings of that period.

After 1408 few written records mention the settlers.

 There is correspondence between the Pope and the Biskop Bertold af Garde from the same year.

The Danish cartographer Claudius Clavus seems to have visited Greenland in 1420, according to documents written by Nicolas Germanus and Henricus Martellus, who had access to original cartographic notes and a map by Clavus. 

Two mathematical manuscripts containing the second chart of the Claudius Clavus map from his journey to Greenland, where he himself mapped the area, were found during the late 20th century by the Danish scholars Bjönbo and Petersen.

In a letter dated 1448 from Rome, Pope Nicholas V instructed the bishops of Skálholtand Hólar (the two Icelandic episcopal sees) to provide the inhabitants of Greenland with priests and a bishop, the latter of which they had not had in the 30 years since a purported attack by "heathens" who destroyed most of the churches and took the population prisoner.

 It is probable that the Eastern Settlement was defunct by the middle of the 15th century, although no exact date has been established

A European ship that landed in the former Eastern Settlement in the 1540s found the corpse of a Norse man there,[19] which may[original research?] be the last mention of a Norse individual from the settlement.

Norse failure[edit]

A graphical description of changes in temperature in Greenland from 500 – 1990 based on analysis of the deep ice core from Greenland and some historical events. 

The annual temperature changes are shown vertical in ˚C. The numbers are to be read horizontal:

1. From 700 to 750 people belonging to the Late Dorset Culture move into the area around Smith Sound, Ellesmere Island and Greenland north of Thule.

2. Norse settlement of Iceland starts in the second half of the 9th century.

3. Norse settlement of Greenland starts just before the year 1000.

4. Thule Inuit move into northern Greenland in the 12th century.

5. Late Dorset culture disappears from Greenland in the second half of the 13th century.

6. The Western Settlement disappears in mid 14th century.

7. In 1408 is the Marriage in Hvalsey, the last known written document on the Norse in Greenland.

8. The Eastern Settlement disappears in mid 15th century.

9. John Cabot is the first European in the post-Iceland era to visit Labrador - Newfoundland in 1497.

10. "Little Ice Age" from c. 1600 to mid 18th century.

11. The Norwegian priest Hans Egede arrives in Greenland in 1721.

There are many theories as to why the Norse settlements in Greenland collapsed after surviving for some 450–500 years (985 to 1450–1500). 

Among the factors that have been suggested as contributing to the demise of the Greenland colony are:[20][21]

• Cumulative environmental damage

• Gradual climate change

• Conflicts with hostile Inuit tribes

• Loss of contact and support from Europe

• Cultural conservatism and failure to adapt to an increasingly harsh natural environment

• Opening of opportunities elsewhere after plague had left many farmsteads abandoned in Iceland and Norway

• Declining value of ivory in Europe (due to the influx of ivory from Russian walrus and African elephants)

Numerous studies have tested these hypotheses and some have led to significant discoveries. 

In The Frozen Echo, Kirsten Seaver contests some of the more generally accepted theories about the demise of the Greenland colony, and asserts that the colony, towards the end, was healthier than Diamond and others have thought.

 Seaver believes that the Greenlanders cannot have starved to death, but rather may have been wiped out by Inuit or unrecorded European attacks, or they may have abandoned the colony for Iceland or Vinland. 

However, the physical evidence from archeological studies of the ancient farm sites does not show evidence of attack.

 The paucity of personal belongings at these sites is typical of North Atlantic Norse sites that were abandoned in an orderly fashion, 

with any useful items being deliberately removed; 

but to others it suggests a gradual but devastating impoverishment. 

Middensat these sites do show an increasingly impoverished diet for humans and livestock.

 Else Roesdahl argues that declining ivory prices in Europe due to the influx of Russian and African ivory adversely affected the Norse settlements in Greenland, which depended largely on the export of walrus ivory to Europe.

Greenland was always colder in winter than Iceland and Norway, and its terrain less hospitable to agriculture. 

Erosion of the soil was a danger from the beginning, one that the Greenland settlements may not have recognized until it was too late. 

For an extended time, nonetheless, the relatively warm West Greenland current flowing northwards along the southwestern coast of Greenland made it feasible for the Norse to farm much as their relatives did in Iceland or northern Norway. 

Palynologists' tests on pollen counts and fossilized plants prove that the Greenlanders must have struggled with soil erosion and deforestation.

 A Norse farm in the Vatnahverfi district, excavated in the 1950s, 
had been buried in layers of drifting sand up to 10 feet deep.

 As the unsuitability of the land for agriculture became more and more patent, 
the Greenlanders resorted first to pastoralism and
then to hunting for their food.

 But they never learned to use the hunting techniques of the Inuit,
 one being a farming culture, 
the other living on hunting in more northern areas with pack ice.

To investigate the possibility of climatic cooling, scientists drilled into the Greenland ice caps to obtain core samples. 

The oxygen isotopes from the ice caps suggested that the Medieval Warm Period had caused a relatively milder climate in Greenland, lasting from roughly 800 to 1200. 

However, from 1300 or so the climate began to cool. 

By 1420, the "Little Ice Age" had reached intense levels in Greenland.

Excavations of middens from the Norse farms in both Greenland and Iceland show the shift from the bones of cows and pigs to those of sheep and goats. 

As the winters lengthened, and the springs and summers shortened, there must have been less and less time for Greenlanders to grow hay. 

A study of North Atlantic seasonal temperature variability showed a significant decrease in maximum summer temperatures beginning in the late 13th century to early 14th century—as much as 6-8 °C lower than modern summer temperatures.

The study also found that the lowest winter temperatures of the last 2,000 years occurred in the late 14th century and early 15th century. 

By the mid-14th century deposits from a chieftain's farm showed a large number of cattle and caribouremains, whereas, a poorer farm only several kilometers away had no trace of domestic animal remains, only seal.

 Bone samples from Greenland Norse cemeteries confirm that the typical Greenlander diet had increased by this time from 20% sea animals to 80%.[26]

Although Greenland seems to have been uninhabited at the time of initial Norse settlement, 
the Thule people migrated south and finally came into contact with the Norse in the 12th century. 

There are limited sources showing the two cultures interacting; however, scholars know that the Norse referred to the Inuit (and Vinland natives) as skræling. 

The Icelandic Annals are among the few existing sources that confirm contact between the Norse and the Inuit. 

They report an instance of hostility initiated by the Inuit against the Norse, leaving eighteen Greenlanders dead and two boys carried into slavery.

Archaeological evidence seems to show that the Inuit traded with the Norse. 

On the other hand, the evidence shows many Norse artefacts at Inuit sites throughout Greenland and on the Canadian Arctic islands but very few Inuit artefacts in the Norse settlements. 

This may indicate either European indifference—an instance of cultural resistance to Inuit crafts among them—or perhaps hostile raiding by the Inuit. 

It is also quite possible that the Norse were trading for perishable items such as meat and furs and had little interest in other Inuit items, 
much as later Europeans who traded with Native Americans.

The Norse never learned the Inuit techniques of kayak navigation or ring seal hunting. 

Archaeological evidence plainly establishes that by 1300 or so the Inuit had successfully expanded their winter settlements as close to the Europeans as the outer fjords of the Western Settlement. 

By 1350, the Norse had completely deserted their Western Settlement.

The Inuit, being a hunting society, may have hunted the Norse livestock, forcing the Norse into conflict or abandonment of their settlements.

In mild weather conditions, a ship could make the 900-mile (1400 kilometers) trip from Iceland to Eastern Settlement within a couple of weeks. 

Greenlanders had to keep in contact with Iceland and Norway in order to trade. 

Little is known about any distinctive shipbuilding techniques among the Greenlanders. 

Greenland lacks a supply of lumber, so was completely dependent on Icelandic merchants or, possibly, logging expeditions to the Canadian coast.

The sagas mention Icelanders traveling to Greenland to trade.

Settlement chieftains and large farm owners controlled this trade. 

Chieftains would trade with the foreign ships and then disperse the goods by trading with the surrounding farmers.

The Greenlanders' main commodity was the walrus tusk,
 which was used primarily in Europe as a substitute for elephant ivory for art décor, 
whose trade had been blocked by conflict with the Islamic world. 

Professor Gudmundsson suggests a very valuable narwhal tusk trade, 
through a smuggling route between western Iceland and the Orkney islands.

It has been argued that the royal Norwegian monopoly on shipping contributed to the end of trade and contact. 

However, Christianity and European customs continued to hold sway among the Greenlanders for the greater part of the 14th and 15th centuries. 

In 1921, a Danish historian, Paul Norland, found human remains from the Eastern Settlement in the Herjolfsnes church courtyard. 

The bodies were dressed in 15th century medieval clothing with no indications of malnutrition or inbreeding. 

Most had crucifixes around their necks with their arms crossed as in a stance of prayer. 

Roman papal records report that the Greenlanders were excused from paying their tithes in 1345 because the colony was suffering from poverty.

The last reported ship to reach Greenland was a private ship that was "blown off course", reaching Greenland in 1406, and departing in 1410 with the last news of Greenland: the burning at the stake of a condemned witch, the insanity and death of the woman this witch was accused of attempting to seduce through witchcraft, and the marriage of the ship's captain, Thorsteinn Ólafsson, to another Icelander, Sigridur Björnsdóttir.

However, there are some suggestions of much later unreported voyages from Europe to Greenland, possibly as late as the 1480s.

In the 1540s, a German ship drifted off-course to Greenland and, coming ashore a small island, discovered the body of a dead man lying face down who demonstrated cultural traits of both Norse and Inuit. 

An Icelandic crew member of the ship wrote:

 "He had a hood on his head, well sewn, and clothes from both homespun and sealskin. 

At his side lay a carving knife bent and worn down by whetting. 

This knife they took with them for display."

According to a 2009 study, 

"there is no evidence for perceptible contact between Iceland and Greenland after the mid fifteenth century... It is clear that neither Danish and Norwegian nor Icelandic public functionaries were aware that the Norse Greenland colony had ceased to exist. 

Around 1514, the Norwegian archbishop Erik Valkendorf (Danish by birth, and still loyal to Christian II) planned an expedition to Greenland,

 which he believed to be part of a continuous northern landmass leading to the New World with all its wealth, and which he fully expected still to have a Norse population, whose members could be pressed anew to the bosom of church and crown after an interval of well over a hundred years. 

Presumably, the archbishop had better archives at his disposal than most people, and yet he had not heard that the Greenlanders were gone."

One intriguing fact is that very few fish remains are found among their middens. 

This has led to much speculation and argument. 

Most archaeologists reject any decisive judgment based on this one fact, however, as fish bones decompose more quickly than other remains, and may have been disposed of in a different manner. 

Isotope analysis of the bones of inhabitants shows that 

marine food sources supplied more and more of the diet of the Norse Greenlanders, 
making up between 50% and 80% of their diet by the 14th century.

One Inuit story recorded in the 18th century tells that raiding expeditions by European ships over the course of three years destroyed the settlement, 
after which many of the Norse sailed away south and 

the Inuit took in some of the remaining women and children before the final attack.

Late Dorset and Thule cultures

The Thule were skilled whalers, as depicted here by Norwegian missionary Hans Egede in the 18th century.

The Late Dorset culture inhabited Greenland until around 200 BP.

This culture was primarily located in the northwest of Greenland, far from the Norse who lived around the southern coasts. 

Archaeological evidence points to this culture predating the Norse or Thule settlements.

 In the region of this culture, there is archaeological evidence of gathering sites for around four to thirty families, living together for a short time during their movement cycle.

Around 1300-1400 CE, the Thule arrived from the west settling in the Northeast areas of Greenland.

 These people, the ancestors of the modern Greenland Inuit were flexible and engaged in the hunting of almost all animals on land and in the ocean, including walrus, narwhal, and seal.

 The Thule adapted well to the environment of Greenland, as archaeological evidence indicates that the Thule were 
not using all parts of hunting kills, unlike other arctic groups, 
meaning they were able to waste more resources 
due to either surplus or well adapted behaviors.

The nature of the contacts between the Dorset and Norse cultures is not clear, but may have included trade elements. 

The level of contact is currently the subject of widespread debate, possibly including Norse trade with Thule or Dorsets in Canada.

Danish recolonization of Greenland

Most of the old Norse records concerning Greenland were removed from Trondheim to Copenhagen in 1664 and subsequently lost, probably in the Copenhagen Fire of 1728.

The precise date of rediscovery is uncertain because south-drifting icebergs during the Little Ice Age long made the eastern coast unreachable. 

This led to general confusion between Baffin Island, Greenland, and Spitsbergen, as seen, for example, in the difficulty locating the Frobisher "Strait", which was not confirmed to be a bay until 1861. 

Nonetheless, interest in discovering a Northwest Passage to Asia led to repeated expeditions in the area, 
though none were successful until Roald Amundsen in 1906 
and even that success involved his being iced in for two years. 

Christian I of Denmark purportedly sent an expedition to the region under Pothorst and Pining to Greenland in 1472 or 1473;

 Henry VII of England sent another under Cabot in 1497 and 1498; 

Manuel I of Portugal sent a third under Corte-Real in 1500 and 1501. 

It had certainly been generally charted by the 1502 Cantino map, which includes the southern coastline.

The island was "rediscovered" yet again by Martin Frobisher in 1578, prompting King Frederick II of Denmark to outfit a new expedition of his own the next year under the Englishman James Alday; this proved a costly failure.

The influence of English and Dutch whalers became so pronounced that for a time the western shore of the island itself became known as "Davis Strait" (Dutch: Straat Davis) after John Davis's 1585 and 1586 expeditions, which charted the western coast as far north as Disko Bay.

Meanwhile, following Sweden's exit from the Kalmar Union, the remaining states in the personal union were reorganized into Denmark-Norway in 1536. 

In protest against foreign involvement in the region, the Greenlandic polar bear was included in  the state's coat of arms in the 1660s (it was removed in 1958 but remains part of the royal coat of arms). 

In the second half of the 17th century Dutch, German, French, Basque, and Dano-Norwegian ships hunted bowhead whales in the pack ice off the east coast of Greenland,
 regularly coming to shore to trade and replenish drinking water. 

Foreign trade was later forbidden by Danish monopoly merchants.

A 1747 map based on Egede's descriptions, including many geographical errors common to the time.

From 1711 to 1721,[43] the Norwegian cleric Hans Egede petitioned King Frederick IV of Denmark for funding to travel to Greenland and re-establish contact with the Norse settlers there. 

Presumably, such settlers would still be Catholic or even pagan and he desired to establish a mission among them to spread the Reformation.[44] 

Frederick permitted Egede and some Norwegian merchants to establish the Bergen Greenland Company to revive trade with the island but refused to grant them a monopoly over it for fear of antagonizing Dutchwhalers in the area.[45] 

The Royal Mission College assumed authority over the mission and provided the company with a small stipend.

 Egede found but misidentified the ruins of the Norse colony, went bankrupt amid repeated attacks by the Dutch, and found lasting conversion of the migrant Inuit exceedingly difficult.

 An attempt to found a royal colony under Major Claus Paarss established the settlement of Godthåb ("Good Hope") in 1728, 

but became a costly debacle which saw most of the soldiers mutiny and the settlers killed by scurvy.

 Two child converts sent to Copenhagen for the coronation of Christian VI returned in 1733 with smallpox, devastating the island. 

The same ship that returned them, however, also brought the first Moravian missionaries, who in time would convert a former angekok (Inuit shaman), experience a revival at their mission of New Herrnhut, and establish a string of mission houses along the southwest coast. 

Around the same time, the merchant Jacob Severin took over administration of the colony and its trade,
 and having secured a large royal stipend and full monopoly from the king, 
successfully repulsed the Dutch in a series of skirmishes in 1738 and 1739. 

Egede himself quit the colony on the death of his wife, leaving the Lutheran mission to his son Poul. 

Both of them had studied the Kalaallisut language extensively and published works on it; as well, 
Poul and some of the other clergy sent by the Mission College, such as Otto Fabricius,

 began wide-ranging study of Greenland's flora, fauna, and meteorology. 

However, though kale, lettuce, and other herbs were successfully introduced, 
repeated attempts to cultivate wheat or clover failed throughout Greenland,
 limiting the ability to raise European livestock.

As a result of the Napoleonic Wars, 
Norway was ceded to Sweden at the 1814 Treaty of Kiel. 

The colonies, including Greenland, remained in Danish possession. 

The 19th century saw increased interest in the region on the part of polar explorers and scientists like William Scoresby and Greenland-born Knud Rasmussen. 

At the same time, the colonial elements of the earlier trade-oriented Danish presence in Greenland expanded. 

In 1861, the first Greenlandic-language journal was founded. 
Danish law still applied only to the Danish settlers, though. 

At the turn of the 19th century, the northern part of Greenland was still sparsely populated; 
only scattered hunting inhabitants were found there.

During that century, however, Inuit families immigrated from British North America to settle in these areas. 

The last group from what later became Canada arrived in 1864.

 During the same time, the northeastern part of the coast became depopulated following the violent 1783 Lakagígar eruption in Iceland.

Democratic elections for the district assemblies of Greenland were held for the first time in 1862–1863, although no assembly for the land as a whole was allowed.

 In 1888, a party of six led by Fridtjof Nansen accomplished the first land crossing of Greenland. 

The men took 41 days to make the crossing on skis, at approximately 64°N latitude.

In 1911, two Landstings were introduced, one for northern Greenland and one for southern Greenland, not to be finally merged until 1951. 

All this time, most decisions were made in Copenhagen, where the Greenlanders had no representation. 

Towards the end of the 19th century, traders criticized the Danish trade monopoly.

 It was argued that it kept the natives in non-profitable ways of life, holding back the potentially large fishing industry. 

Many Greenlanders however were satisfied with the status quo, as they felt the monopoly would secure the future of commercial whaling. 

It probably did not help that the only contact the local population had with the outside world was with Danish settlers. 

Nonetheless, the Danes gradually moved over their investments to the fishing industry.

By 1911, the population was about 14,000, scattered along the southern shores. 

They were nearly all Christian, thanks to the missionary efforts of Moravians and especially Hans Egede (1686–1758), a Lutheran missionary called "the Apostle of Greenland."

 He founded Greenland's capital Godthåb, now known as Nuuk. 

His grandson Hans Egede Saabye (1746–1817) continued the missionary activities.[49]

Polar exploration

At the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century, American explorers, including Robert Peary, 
explored the northern sections of Greenland, 
which up to that time had been a mystery
 and were often shown on maps as extending over the North Pole. 

Peary discovered that Greenland's northern coast in fact stopped well short of the pole. 

These discoveries were considered to be the basis of an American territorial claim in the area. 

But after the United States purchased the Virgin Islands from Denmark in 1917, it agreed to relinquish all claims on Greenland.

Strategic importance

See also: History of Greenland during World War II

After Norway regained full independence in 1905, it argued that Danish claims to Greenland were invalid since the island had been a Norwegian possession prior to 1815.

 In 1931, Norwegian whaler Hallvard Devold occupied uninhabited eastern Greenland, on his own initiative. 

After the fact, the occupation was supported by the Norwegian government, who claimed the area as Erik the Red's Land. 

Two years later, the Permanent Court of International Justice ruled in favor of Denmark.

The Thule Air Base, established after World War II, is the northernmost base of the US Air Force

World War II

During World War II, when Nazi Germany

extended its war operations to Greenland, Henrik Kauffmann, the Danish Minister to the United States 
— who had already refused to recognize the German occupation of Denmark — 
signed a treaty with the United States on April 9, 1941, 
granting the US Armed Forces permission to establish stations in Greenland.

Kauffmann did this without the knowledge of the Danish government, and consequently 
"the Danish government accused him of high treason, fired him and told him to come home immediately – none of which had any result."

Because it was difficult for the Danish government to govern the island during the war, 
and because of successful exports, especially of cryolite, 
Greenland came to enjoy a rather independent status.
 Its supplies were guaranteed by the United States and Canada.

One Dane was killed in combat with Germans in Greenland.

Cold War

During the Cold War, Greenland had a strategic importance,
 controlling parts of the passage between the Soviet Arctic harbours and the Atlantic, 
as well as being a good base for observing any use of intercontinental ballistic missiles, 
typically planned to pass over the Arctic. 

The United States therefore had a geopolitical interest in Greenland, 
and in 1946, the United States offered to buy Greenland from Denmark for $100,000,000 but Denmark did not agree to sell.

 In 1951, the Kauffman treaty was replaced by another one. 
The Thule Air Base at Thule (now Qaanaaq) in the northwest was made a permanent air force base. 

In 1953, some Inuit families were forced by Denmark to move from their homes to provide space for extension of the base. 

For this reason, the base has been a source of friction between the Danish government and the Greenlandic people. 

Tensions mounted when, on January 21, 1968, there was a nuclear accident — a B-52 Stratofortress carrying four hydrogen bombs crashed near the base, contaminating the area with radioactive debris. 

Although most of the contaminated ice was cleaned up, controversy currently surrounds recently declassified information indicating that one of the bombs was not accounted for. 

A 1995 Danish parliamentary scandal, dubbed Thulegate, 

highlighted that nuclear weapons were routinely present in Greenland's airspace in the years leading up to the accident, 

and that Denmark had tacitly given the go-ahead for this activity despite its official nuclear free policy.

Another recent controversy surrounds the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System(BMEWS), 
which the United States Air Force upgraded in recent years to a phased array radar.

Opponents argue that the system presents a threat to the local population,
 as it would be targeted in the event of nuclear war.

> Business Owners Upset Over Increase of Shoplifters Due to Prop. 47 | NBC Southern California

Small business owners in San Diego County are sounding an alarm over thousands of dollars in losses to shoplifters.

The problem is that those shoplifters don't appear to be facing any consequences.

A 7-Eleven franchise owner told NBC 7 every single day shoplifters come in and take what they want if they keep it under a certain amount.

The owner hopes the city will step in to do something because right now they claim police have their hands tied.

"It's happening every day, hour by hour," said 7-Eleven Franchise Owner,

At every one of his six locations, he said snacks fly off the shelves, but are often not paid for.

"It's unbearable. It's out of control. You will have the same guy coming in five times a day, picking things out,"

He said it feels it's no longer a priority for police because it's now considered petty theft.

Under Prop 47, which passed in 2014, anything stolen below a $950 value keeps the crime as a misdemeanor.

"It's becoming a lifestyle for us now because we can't do anything much except take the loss you know,"

He showed NBC 7 several surveillance videos from his cameras recording people shoplifting.

El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells is aware it's become a major problem for small business owners,

now that a group of 7-Eleven store owners are speaking up.

The group said that by the time officers arrive, the shoplifter has left or is not concerned about the ticket they get.

"Usually ends up in the trashcan and it's just the lawlessness really that the city doesn't prescribe to

said he loses between $15,000 and $20,000 a quarter at every location.

He hopes law enforcement does more in the future to help curb the growing problem.

"For them, these are small crimes, but this is how the crimes grow.

This is where they start.

This is where they move onto bigger ones.

Please don't wait for something bad to happen," said Dhillon.

NBC 7 reached the El Cajon Police Department for comment but have not heard back.

obviously a movement using climate change as the excuse to impose socialism and overthrow capitalism.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (AOC) Green New Deal,

and how the world will come to an end in just 12 years,

has been using climate change to overthrow capitalism.

Even if this were a real threat, there is no possible way to end all automobiles and air traffic in 12 years to save the planet.

Tucker Carlson took on Robert Hockett, who advised Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the Green New Deal.

He managed to get him to admit that the world will not end in 12 years.

He admitted that they are using climate change to overthrow the entire economy.
