In 2007 Al Gore won the Nobel Prize for his work on raising public awareness of Global Warming. That same year President George W. Bush was being mocked and humiliated for his call for a military “Surge” to secure Iraq. In 2009, our own, very newly inaugurated President Barack Obama, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Talk about an upside down world.
Nobel knuckleheads had this to say about Gore: “As early as in 1992, the year when he was elected Vice President of the United States, Gore was making himself known as a highly environment-conscious politician, among other things through his book Earth in the Balance: Forging a New Common Purpose, in which he took up the problem of global warming. Having lost the presidential election in 2000, he decided to use his influence to increase public awareness in the United States and other countries of the seriousness of the environmental situation. This goal he well-nigh achieved by means of his documentary film An Inconvenient Truth (2006).”
During the same time their “highly environment-conscious politician” was trumpeting his movie, his utility bills revealed he’d used more electricity in one month than an average American family used in 2 years! The flick itself proved to be so factually flawed that a British High Court judge ruled the government could only send a copy to schools if it was accompanied by guidelines highlighting “nine scientific errors” to counter Gore’s “one-sided views”. Subsequent scandals including but not limited to “ClimateGate” have shown, on multiple occasions, crooked scientists deliberately corrupting studies in an effort to sway opinion in favor of global warming. “Environmentalist” Gore later sold his barely watched cable channel to mid eastern, rich on dirty oil dollars, Al Jazeera for a “cool” (couldn’t resist) half billion bucks. That our former VP is suing the new owners, Qatar’s royal family, for keeping $65 million he says is his, just makes this part of the story sweeter.
There’s so much irony, mixed with Nobel idiocy in Obama’s award it really should be read in it’s entirety. Our comments will be brief and written in bold italics.
“The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.” Somebody send the memo to Iran & North Korea.
“Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play. Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations. Thanks to Obama’s initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.” Note to Nobel Committee-Please translate this particular paragraph so it can be distributed and read throughout Syria, Libya, Russia, Iraq, China, Iran, N. Korea, Ukraine, Africa, Israel, Egypt, the West Bank, Chicago, the newly form Islamic terrorist state, our Southern Border, and the United Nations.
“Only very rarely has a person, to the same extent as Obama, captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.” Obama’s diplomacy is founded on the concept that he should NOT DO stupid “sh..”…..BUT should “lead from behind”.
“For 108 years, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has sought to stimulate precisely that international policy and those attitudes for which Obama is now the world’s leading spokesman. The Committee endorses Obama’s appeal that “Now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges.” As if Obama has ever taken his share of responsibility on anything that did not go well. It’s Bush’s fault, the GOP’s fault, or, most recently and mostly outrageously, the fault of the same “social media” responsible for his cult like ascendancy to the presidency.
While elite theorists, and dopey Nobel utopians were swooning over Gore and rousing to Obama, President George W. Bush was being verbally crucified for saying the following:
“I know some in Washington would like us to start leaving Iraq now. To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we’re ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States. It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to Al Qaida. It’d mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. It’d mean we’d allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan. It’d mean we’d be increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.”
In retrospect “W’s” words could not have been more profoundly prophetic. He’s been proven absolutely correct on every level.
So here’s the scorecard on Nobel winners, Messrs. Gore and Obama. Regarding the singular issue for which he was feted, Albert Gore has been exposed as money grubbing, fake, phony, fraud, hypocrite. Peace Prize recipient, Barack Obama, from his lofty presidential perch, has presided over a world wide devolution into primitive savagery and chaos on a level probably not seen since World War II. Meanwhile that Texas cowboy, all the learned losers loved to mock, got it right on one of the most critical and dangerous issues of the 21st Century. In the end, Bush proved himself to be way smarter than both the simple minded members of the Nobel Panel and their award winning losers.
