What ccan you say about a spectacle like Gore. Other than his own son (a good Golfer) won't speak to him. Says allot to me.
Holman Jenkins is the man, see his recent WSJ piece on Al Gore's rent seeking, the "new style of entrepreneurship" to which respect must be paid! Pols are the true 1%.
Great post 911.
As far a liberals are concerned every year we go into global cooling and then back into global warming as the seasons change. The liberals want to say it's our fault yet they teach years of different climates for the earth throughout it's history but somehow now that we're around thats not supposed to happen right??
I love the pictures of a polar bear on a small patch of ice in the water. Like he is stranded and doesn't know what to do. I'm pretty sure polar bears can swim about 800 miles. They are avid swimmers and them being on an ice patch in the water is because of their choosing and not because they got stuck on piece of ice that broke off due to warming weather.
Ah, but don't let those pesky facts ruin your fun.
Ok, let's be realistic. Good Ol' Al believes in global warming about as much as I do. (Which is to say not at all). If any of you have heard his "Planet has a Fever" speech, you can hear the laughter in his voice. He's laughing at all the foolish people sitting in the audience that paid hundreds of dollars to hear him speak. With his use of fuel to get around, his ENORMOUS home, his carbon footprint makes him look like Bigfoot compared to to a baby when compared to the average US citizen. But, hey America, the "Planet has a fever (hehe)." Hypocrisy runs rampant through the left, but the Sheeple just continue to follow them because they believe that it's the right thing to do. Why wouldn't they believe that? It is what the MSM preaches to them daily.
So that he sold his company to Al Jazeera should come as no surprise to anyone. What would have been surprising is if he had sold it to Glenn Beck.
Al Gore continually shows his true colors as a hater of America and all things good and just. He disagrees with Glenn Beck's libertarianism, and won't sell to him, but has no qualms doing business with an entire people DEDICATED to racism and bigotry. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Don't forget the fact that his father was a racist, anti American scum, too. Just as the Force runs strongly in some Jedi families in Lucas' world, racism and bigotry runs strongly in the veins of leftists, especially those named Gore.
Everyone misses the point on the 'global warming movement'. It's not about warming or green house gasses.
It's about instituting a one world government.
The containment of greenhouse gasses is merely a red herring issue to get all countries to agree to be under the control of a world environmental regulation body (the proverbial 'camels nose in the tent').
So, don't be fooled by this socialist/progressive ploy.
I presume that Al Gore completed the transaction by Dec 31st to avoid the new Obama tax rates on this sale.
Al would have more money if he sold the INTERNET! How many people think he owns the thing? I think Hannity should do a man on the street with that one.
We probably would not be surprised.
If Algore spends like Obama and Michelle and the rest of the political cabal, it won't last long. In fact, maybe it's already spent and then some.
Of the 3 top words to describe most liberals, "Hippocrates" is one of them. I'll let y'all use your imagination for the other two...lol.
But Al leads them all.
Now he can get back to his real job. Sexually assaulting massage therapists. Him and John Travolta should hook up.
look at Algor's face....raging fury??? Not 'nuf said.
His "pay ME, and I will make the air clean" didn't do too well.
Much saner are locked up and being watched 24/7.
Conservatives shouldn't make the same mistake that their leftist idiot counterparts do, that is, declaring a profit where none might exist.
Current has been losing money hand over fist for seven years. There's no evidence to suggest that Gore and his partner, Joel Hyatt, are turning a profit with this sale.
That said, this sale makes little business sense. Al Jazeera is trying to buy existing cable slots but Current has no HD signal and went from 6o million homes to 40 million the moment the deal was announced.
It might be a worse business decision than Oprah buying Discovery Health.
Just remember their potential subversive intent. They may not be interested in reaching more American households. They may just want a sleeper network for their mosques around the country. Very quiet and subtle. Just put a few coded messages at prearranged times in the Joy Behar show and who would suspect.
I recognize your sarcasm but that reason wouldn't make any sense in today's world. It's not a television business decision. It's a front to spread dollars around DC leagally and purchase friends and influence.
I like that "The Islamic View" She might even look better in a burqa although I'll be the first to scream that she presents women as slaves
How interesting that Spitzer wasn't good enough for even al-Jazeera. That's gotta hurt. I wonder if Joy Behar will leave in three months with the rest of the liberal lineup, or will she "Burqa out" and start a new show with them. They could call it, "The Islamic View". She certainly doesn't have to worry about losing audience, at least. How could she get any lower?
Hey, I like that song! Except when it was used at the end of a movie about a guy that murdered his parents.
I just saw on Twitter Spitzer cancelled his show and it was in the NY Slime! http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/01/06/eliot-spitzer-end-his-show-on-current-tv/?src=twrhp
Libs are educated beyond their intelligence, so they can argue any side of an issue, but have no real bases how to be truly human.
They are just "dust in the wind".
Cenk was a guy who used to be on MSNBC, on a show called the Young Turks (I think he started it on the internet, it went to MSNBC, and then migrated to Current TV). He was very anti-American, in my opinion.
I agree with your assessment of the muslims. I can't understand why lefties are so blind that they can't see the knife at their own throats.
Never heard of chenk uyzerxqqgurrr ;-) The Muzzies are using Gore and the Libtards as part of their "enemy of my enemy is my friend" strategy... But if any of them bothered to read history, they'd know that as soon as the "enemy" has been "defeated" the Muzzies will immediately turn on the Libtards and exterminate them as "being much worse than our "enemy" but were useful idiots while you lasted"
Yeah, just look at the base of their lineup. The likes of Bill Press, Joy Behar, Cenk Uygur, Eliot Spitzer, Jennifer Granholm, and of course the short-lived Keith Olbermann - sounds like a who's-who of Air America. And it was heading into the hillside much like that radio counterpart did.
Too bad the muslims bailed Gore out (but then they all believe in bailouts, don't they).
Makes perfect sense. They can monitor who visits certain websites. So going to "suspect" sites can get you "tagged"... But a seemingly normal - if somewhat dingbat crazy leftist - TV show is "passive" You can have it on and not be noticed. It's like using papers and crosswords to pass coded messages. It's the old "hid in plain sight" game. The feds are looking hard at all the "remote" places for hints of activity, but nobody watches CurrentTV... I bet most people didn't even hear of it until the report came out that Al (call me "hypocrite") Gore sold it to them mad camel jockeys!
My comment was only half sarcasm. I agree it's a bad television business decision and I also agree it's a front for them. I just consider the fact that we are watching their mosques more closely now and what better way to quietly pass on information to these potential bastions of terrorism across our nation.
Seems to me al-Jazeera and the Muslim Brotherhood already have friends and influence in Washington, especially inside the administration. But your point is well taken.
The sale of Current to Al Jazeera is very troubling. Far to many young people see these foreign, state controlled media arms as "true news" but consider something like the Blaze (which was set up to provide an alternative to the MSM) to be "propaganda". Also, Al Jazeera buy Current, is obvious stealth Jihad if I ever saw it.
The only "green" boneheads like Al Gore are interested in is the green of more money. If he were born 150 years earlier, he would have been selling snake oil.
I want to protect our planet as much as just about anyone else. God gave us this world to live on and use. As long as we use it responsibly (not dumping toxic waste where it shouldn't be dumped) then what's the problem? If we have oil, use it. If we have wind, use it. If we have coal, use it. And so on...
But then we have hypocritical charlatans like this boob, trying get rich off of fools. It wouldn't be so bad if it stopped there (a fool and his money are soon parted) but this slob is affecting politics and conveniently towing the liberal line... to the detriment of American jobs, regulations and livelihoods. I don't understand why anyone would even listen to this jack wagon. He's like Al Sharpton, just on another subject (that he knows nothing about).
I think the height of Al Gore's hypocrisy was his buying an 8 million dollar mansion on oceanfront property at a time when he was crowing about massive flooding of coastal lands due to rising sea levels (buy carbon credits from a company that I own, please).
This mansion sprawled over 1.5 acres and sported a swimming pool (in drought ridden California), a fountain, a spa, and 6 fireplaces (God forbid we burn carbon fuels).
Perhaps, he can now entertain those new-found cohorts in philosophy - Al Jazeera. I guess we now know why Tipper left him. She wouldn't wear the Burqa.
I'm just stunned that Al-Jazeera shelled out that sum of money to buy a channel nobody watches. And you just know that a lot of cable distributors will drop the channel as soon as Al-Jazeera takes it over. If anything, I think it's a really poor business move on Al-Jazeera's part. As for Al Gore, hypocrisy and lies are what I've come to expect from the far left, so there are no major surprises here.
I'm waiting for the EO that mandates the amount of time each American needs to spend viewing the channel with interactive tests or we'll receive a knock on the door for mandatory re-education camp.
Seriously, I fear this will be broadcast in public schools....
"I'm just stunned that Al-Jazeera shelled out that sum of money to buy a channel nobody watches."
Oh you can bet there's more to this than we are being told about, there always is.
I agree. Is this the way they will communicate messages between mosques in the US without drawing attention to who they are? For example, they could put coded messages on Joy Behar's show without anyone blinking an eye. Who listens to that crapola as it is?
This man sold his soul to the devil right before he ran for president. He wasn't worth a pile of dung before then but during his run you could see the transformation.
