Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth

Al Gore is an extremely rich man!  He has been peddling a “Climate Change/Global Warming” scam that gullible left-wing Americans have bought into hook, line and sinker. Gore somehow even managed to win both a Nobel Peace Prize and an Academy Award for his nonsense from easily-led pseudo-intellectuals.  But, the real fact is that none of Gore’s dire predictions have actually come true!

Ten years ago Monday, Al Gore stated emphatically that we had only a decade left to save the planet from global warming.  According to his predictions, we should now be living in some kind of a giant frying pan! But surprise surprise, the Earth has been trucking along just fine.  Why do so many still listen to this man?  Generally they are the same people who still believe Barack Obama’s lies!  In short, they blindly drink the progressive Cool Aid!

I do remember how, at the  Sundance Film Festival in January 2006, during the premiere of his grand documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth”, Gore made his grand prediction. The former vice president stated, according to the AP reporter taking down his story, that “unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return.” In Gore’s own words, he claimed we were in “a true planetary emergency.”

Ten years later, he’s probably hoping that everyone has forgotten about his categorical statement.

The terrible truth for Al Gore is that there is no planetary emergency. Not one of the dire predictions he and the rest of the alarmist community made has come to pass. In fact, there is plenty of evidence that they have been getting rich from this hoax.

Investor Business Daily has a few more “inconvenient truths ” that Al Gore would rather not have the public hear (You will not find these truths on any of the left-wing, lap-dog media outlets; you know, the ones who felt a shiver run up their leg when Obama spoke and who now drool over Hillary Clinton):

  1. Earth hasn’t warmed in nearly 20 years. Yes, 2015 supposedly “smashed” the previous temperature record. But actually it was the third-warmest year on record and maybe “not even close to the hottest year on record,” says James Taylor of the Heartland Institute.
  2. Predictions that climate change (the re-branding of “global warming” when it turned out that predicted warming wasn’t happening) would cause catastrophic weather damage have simply not panned out. German insurance giant Munich Re says losses from natural disasters were lower in 2015 than in 2014 and lowest since 2009. The facts are sharply at odds with Gore’s 2012 claim that “dirty weather” caused by “dirty fossil fuel” has created “extreme weather” that “is happening all over the world with increasing frequency.”
  3. Despite all the self-congratulatory international conferences and pseudo-agreements, the world has done nothing to “fight global warming.” He cannot claim that his deadline has been extended because some governments have forced their citizens to cut carbon dioxide emissions. CO2 levels keep climbing and now exceed 401 parts per million in the atmosphere. It is simply not the dangerous greenhouse gas we’ve repeatedly been told it is.
  4. In the mid-to-late-2000’s, Gore repeatedly predicted that an ice-free Arctic Ocean was coming soon. But as usual, his fortune-telling was wrong. By 2014, Arctic ice had grown thicker and covered a greater area than it did when he made his prediction
  5. Gore’s movie, which somehow won an Oscar, was found by a British judge to contain nine errors. The judge said it could not be shown to students unless it included a notice pointing out the errors.

I suppose Al Gore is laughing all the way to the bank.

 

 

“Snapback” My A$$!

An interesting observation:

Remember Obama’s statement that he used to get congress to approve the Iran deal … that the deal had a “snapback” provision that would reinstate all the sanctions if Iran did anything that violated the agreement?  Well guess what … not so much!

Iran, according to both US intelligence agencies and the UN, has violated a whole range of things in the agreement . What does the Obama administration do?  Absolutely nothing!  In fact, the Obama administration viciously fights back against congress when they attempt to impose any sanctions on Iran at all!

In the meantime, Obama goes full speed ahead with giving Iran (the number one sponsor of terror in the world) 100 billion dollars.  That money will pay for attacks on US citizens and interests around the world. We have a President who has put in place a system where U.S. taxpayers fund the terror attacks against themselves.  

How is that for Hope and Change!

Baltimore Protesters Protest Their Own Success!

US_NEWS_BALTIMORE_POLICE_DEATH_8_BZ.5672a585631b3

Activists in Baltimore fought to keep the trial of Officer William Porter for his alleged part in the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore where the jury would to be made up of Baltimore’s citizens … a true jury of his peers.  They got what they wanted and Officer Porter was tried in Baltimore.  However, the result was not what they wanted.  The trial resulted in a hung jury!  Of course the activists do not like this result and vow it is not over.

Prosecutor Mosby was present in court when the mistrial was declared and she was visibly upset.  She’d had planned to use testimony from Porter in their cases against the other officers and therefore is surely quite exasperated at having her grand political agenda thwarted.

“They didn’t offer him immunity. So now, they are in a situation where they have this charged defendant hanging out there, and they can’t force him to testify against these other officers,” CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin said. “And so, I think that this is, in many respects, a game changer for this prosecution.”

Prosecutors are in “serious trouble,” CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said.

“A hung jury is a defeat for the prosecution, especially when they needed Porter to make some of these other cases,” Toobin said. “Now, it’s not impossible that at least some of these other cases can go to trial without Porter, but his testimony was going to be important.”

So …  protesters in Baltimore will continue to call police officers racist and march in the streets chanting, “No justice, no peace” and, “All night, all day, we will fight for Freddie Gray.”  I guess what this really means that these activists define justice as getting what they want … whether it is right or wrong!

Random Musings

AG Loretta Lynch is on CNN announcing a Justice Department investigation into the Chicago Police Department’s use of force in recent shootings of young black men. It is interesting to hear the CNN pundits prattle on aimlessly and pointlessly that somehow baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, George W Bush, global warming and Chevrolet are at fault! Yes, it is certainly a tragedy! However, I wonder when it will dawn on them and black Americans that this not taking place in “right-wing, earth-destroying, granny-pushing-off-the-cliff, bible-and-gun-clinging-to conservative America , but rather in a longstanding democratic stronghold; a veritable Alinski-inspired Utopian paradise with very strict gun laws … and one that is brilliantly led by an enlightened Obama administration former member, Rahm Emanuel! Keep on drinking that progressive-liberal cool aid!

On a second note:

Under the Obama administration, ISIS (or ISIL or Daesh or man-caused disasters or overseas contingencies or disgruntled workers or whatever the hell he wants to call radical Islamic terrorism) is growing more and more powerful. Meanwhile back in the good old U.S.A., the U.S. Air Force is running out of bombs! Maybe when the Air Force runs out of bombs, they can start dropping Obama’s bullshit on ISIS and bury them in that. I means, it seems to be working on many Americans!

Will You Defend America?

The one thing the majority of this year’s mass shootings, acts of terrorism and other violent attacks have in common is that they all happened in either gun free zones or places where the weapons used aren’t legal to begin with. A prime example is the city of Chicago. Literally thousands are murdered in Chicago every year and in Chicago it’s nearly impossible for law-abiding citizens to carry firearms. California already has bans on high capacity magazines and assault rifles. How well did that work out for them?

The cold hard truth is that law enforcement simply cannot prevent violence. They can only respond and try to figure out who did it and hopefully apprehend the criminal. The only thing that can prevent more murder in these violent attacks is good people with the ability to defend themselves against a criminal or terrorist shooter by using firearms of their own. Obama’s security experts want you to simply hide and hope the shooter overlooks you. This, however, does nothing to stop the shooter from killing other less fortunate victims. The harsh reality is that only an armed citizen already at the scene would have had any chance to shoot Syed Farook and Tashfeen Mailk and stop the slaughter. The problem is that the left simply cannot see reality through their ideology-colored glasses.

To the left, the idea of being responsible for your own safety (or for anything else for that matter) is very foreign. They get their collective panties in a wad over this idea and passionately wring their hands, uttering things like “do you want war in the streets?” What they fail to comprehend is that there already is war in the streets. ISIS, domestic terrorists inspired by ISIS, gang-bangers, drug cartel killers, and other evil people are already in the streets and they are killing defenseless people. The cold hard fact is that yesterday multiple terrorists walked into a “soft target” facility and opened fire on anyone in view. Arguing that both sides shouldn’t be able to shoot because it would be war is sheer lunacy. The left is essentially giving its blessing to the open slaughter of helpless innocent people.

If the left succeeds in disarming all law-abiding citizens we will not see a decrease in these shootings! What we will see is an increase because then the criminals and terrorists will literally have no fear. There is a reason why FBI statistics show there is lower violent crime rates in areas with concealed carry laws and why the crime is rampant in areas with stricter gun laws like those in Chicago, California or Washington, DC. The criminals are the only ones with guns. Obama is even actively working to disarm law enforcement agencies which is unbelievable in light of recent global terrorist events.

Obama wants to force us to put our trust in him and his left-wing administration to protect us as sheeple. However, Obama can’t even utter the term Islamic terrorist without wetting himself and he has repeatedly shown himself to be totally incapable of understanding and reacting effectively to violence anywhere you look in the world; Iraq, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Mali, Ukraine, Paris, Ft. Hood, St. Louis, New York, Chattanooga, or San Bernardino! Hillary essentially wants to do the same thing. Despite her complete “ignorance” of any national security issues as Secretary of State and the secret email server scandal she created because she “did not think it through”, we are supposed to put our safety in her hands.   Clinton’s failure in protecting her own people in Libya and her later involvement in the cover up to try and make the Benghazi disaster simply go away make that idea an uninspiring proposition to say the least.

The cool aid drinkers and low information voters will ignore all this and vote for Hillary because … well, she is a woman and it is simply her turn. Please do not be one of those who vote simply based on a favorite bumper sticker slogan! Use the thinking brain God gave to you and vote based on facts, real convictions, and a logical assessment of where we as a nation are in real danger of going. Thank you!
