    Newly released documents claim that the Danish government was prepared to build a wall on its southern border with Germany during the height of the 2015 migrant crisis. The documents claim that the government was fully prepared to build a 33-kilometre long wall across the border and had already spent nearly 22 million Danish Krone (£2.5m/$3.2m) on materials to build the structure, Danish newspaper Berlingske reports. Minister of Justice Nick Hekkerup revealed the plan to the Danish parliament showing that the Ministry of Defense’s Material and Purchasing Board had purchased 37,500 barbed spirals, 37,000 barbed wire posts, 35,000 barbed wire...

    In 1953, a significant burial site belonging to the Battle Axe Culture was found when constructing a roundabout in Linköping. 4,500 years ago, a man and a woman were buried together with a child, a dog and a rich set of grave goods including one of the eponymous battle axes. "Today, we call this site 'Bergsgraven'. I have been curious about this particular burial for a long time. The collaboration of archaeologists with geneticists allows us to understand more about these people as individuals as well as where their ancestors came from," says archaeogeneticist Helena Malmström of Uppsala University, lead...

    Mayors from 50 world cities flew to Denmark last week to discuss ways to address the “global climate emergency,” pledging to “do something about it” before they headed homewards again on Sunday. Telling adults to eat less than 300 grams of red meat – about the equivalent of two fillet steaks – a week was one initiative they could agree on.

    Two prototypes and new partnerships have brought Danish brewing giant Carlsberg a step closer to releasing a paper beer bottle. Carlsberg said in a press release that it was close to selling beer in paper bottles, in part to the partnership. Having worked on development of sustainable packaging since 2015, the company is scheduled to present two prototype paper bottles in Copenhagen on Friday. […] A “paper bottle union” between Carlsberg, The Paper Bottle Company (Paboco) and three other global companies — Coca-Cola, L’Oréal and The Absolut Company — is driving the development, according to the Danish brewery. …

The New York Democrat posted an Instagram story Tuesday afternoon showing herself walking through the airport as she headed for her first trip abroad as a freshman lawmaker. She’s off to Copenhagen, Denmark, for the C40 World Mayors Summit. “After a very busy week in district, I’m headed to Copenhagen for a global C40 conference where mayors and a lot of other public servants are going to be convening to discuss what we’ll be – what actions we need to take for the climate crisis,” she told her followers.

    Plans to accommodate “unwanted” migrants on Lindholm, an uninhabited Danish island, have been officially scrapped by the Social Democratic government. Minister for Immigration and Integration Matthias Tesfaye gave on Thursday official confirmation that the facility, plans for which were put in place by the previous government, has now been permanently shelved. Tesfaye’s ministry confirmed the decision via email. “It is very expensive to sail criminal foreigners back and forth between Lindholm and the mainland. One night on the island costs the same as one night at a luxury hotel,” read a Tesfaye statement included in the email. “But that is...

    A majority in the Danish parliament is to back an inquiry into an illegal directive issued by former Minister for Immigration and Integration Inger Støjberg. The inquiry will revolve around a 2016 directive issued by Støjberg while minister. The directive ordered authorities to forcibly separate, without individual case assessment, married couples given asylum in Denmark, provided one of the couple was under 18 years old.The directive was later found to be illegal and Støjberg faced a series of testing parliamentary hearings over it. […] Earlier this week, Støjberg announced she would stand for selection as the new deputy leader of...
  • Travel interest in Greenland surges after President Trump's proposal to buy it

    President Donald Trump is rapidly heating up travelers’ interest in one of the coldest places on earth. The president’s abandoned proposal to purchase Greenland has captured global attention. The prime minister of Denmark—of which Greenland is an autonomous territory—has stated the island is not for sale. Yet that’s not stopping travel apps like Hopper from seeing Greenland searches skyrocket over 300% in the wake of the geopolitical saga. “A spike in the order of [nearly] 340% is totally unforeseen,” Hopper economist Hayley Berg told Yahoo Finance’s YFi PM. He added: “when something goes into the media in such broad strokes...

    Ann Coulter: Can't America have a little self-respect on immigration? © Getty Images Couldn’t America have a little self-respect? Japan, Denmark and Israel do. Year after year, for decades, America has accepted more refugees than the rest of the world combined. No country we admire does anything close to this. Score one for Donald Trump: In 2017, after he became president, our refugee admissions finally dipped slightly below “more than every other country in the world combined.” Go USA! These aren’t immigrants the host country specifically wanted. We’re not saying, "You know, this country could use some people who know...

    I see that the Danish Prime Minister placed a call to President Trump shortly before he left for Europe, possibly in an effort to smooth over the kerfuffle she created by her rude response to the President’s off-handed comment about buying Greenland.My sister had a better idea: we trade the Danes Greenland for Puerto Rico. That way the Danes will have someplace warm to go in the winter when there’s only 6 hours of sunlight in Denmark and we’ll have someplace America’s Green New Deal crowd can go to observe the melting of glaciers. And they can stay there and...

    An odd little story surfaced this week over President Trump’s idea about buying Greenland. For some reason, a Republican senator felt the need to let some constituents in on a fact not previously reported on – he was the one who had the idea in the first place a year ago.Senator Tom Cotton was back home in Arkansas Wednesday and attended a luncheon hosted by an Arkansas-based news website. The inaugural Talk Business & Politics Power Lunch at the Red & Blue Events Center in Little Rock, Arkansas produced an interesting tidbit from Senator Cotton. When asked about the...

    President Trump is upset that Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen called his interest in purchasing Greenland "absurd." Her dismissive response should have come as no surprise. In 1946, when President Harry Truman tried to purchase Greenland, Secretary of State James Byrnes wrote that the proposal "seemed to come as a shock" and an insult to Danish officials, who turned it down. That was a big mistake. As part of his deal, Truman had offered to trade parts of the Point Barrow district of Alaska, including the rights to any oil discovered there, to Denmark, in exchange for parts of Greenland....

    To those of us of who learned our U.S. history from texts in the 1940s and ‘50s, President Donald Trump’s brainstorm of acquiring Greenland fits into a venerable tradition of American expansionism. The story begins with colonial officer George Washington’s march out toward Fort Duquesne in 1754 and crushing defeat and near death at Fort Necessity, where, according to myth, he fired the first shot of what would become the French and Indian War. With the British victory, Washington went home to Virginia, only to be called back in 1775 to lead the Continental Army in America’s War of Independence,...

    Thursday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews described President Donald Trump as “heading up skyward in the craziness department.” Matthews said, “He wants to fight with everybody, including the quiet, American-loving Danes.” He continued, “I think going to war with Denmark is still freaking news. I’m sorry. It still makes my list. This is like a Mel Brooks movie.” He added, “He wants to go to war over Greenland if you wrote this description in Hollywood, nobody would buy it.” Matthews concluded, “If we were in a hospital and a good nurse or doctor we would have a chart with...

    The President of the United States wants to buy an icy northern territory from a foreign country. Critics hate the idea and mock it as absurd and wasteful. But the President makes the deal, and the purchase proves to be one of the most brilliant geopolitical deals in history—a huge boon to American strength and prosperity. Am I describing the 45th President’s effort to buy Greenland from Denmark? Nope, I’m describing the 17th President’s successful effort to buy Alaska from Russia in 1867. It was one of the best bargains America ever struck. If President Trump can pull off another...

    The 2nd and 3rd millennia BC are known to have been a period of significant migrations in western Europe, including the movement of steppe populations into more temperate regions. Starting around 1600 BC, southern Scandinavia became closely linked to long-distance metal trade elsewhere in Europe, which gave rise to a Nordic Bronze Age and a period of significant wealth in the region of present-day Denmark... Frei and colleagues... examined skeletal remains of 88 individuals from 37 localities across present-day Denmark.

    Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Mich.) on Thursday wrote to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to request a breakdown of the money the State Department spent preparing for President Trump’s canceled trip to Denmark. Trump had originally planned to visit the nation in early September, with the visit including the first Danish state dinner attended by a U.S. president since the Clinton administration. However, after Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen publicly rebuffed Trump’s reported interest in the U.S. purchasing Greenland, Trump announced the visit would be canceled. In his letter, Kildee, a member of both the House Budget Committee and the House Ways...
