I’d written here that I didn’t much care to post about Al Gore’s separation from his wife Tipper as it’s a personal issue that is apparently unrelated to the subject matter of this blog.
The new allegations against Gore that surfaced today are a different matter: One, it’s alleged that a crime occurred (sexual assault), and two, it happened immediately after Gore gave his global warming slide show in support of this science fiction/fantasy movie An Inconvenient Truth on the night of October, 2006 at the Portland Rose Garden’s Theater of the Clouds.
Even if what the woman is alleging happened did indeed happen, the case looks difficult to prosecute from my perspective. It’s his word against hers, and there doesn’t seem to be any witnesses. However, there may be the equivalent of a “blue dress”:
The woman told investigators that she informed two friends and kept the clothes she wore that night, including her black pants with stains on them.
But, even if Gore’s DNA was found on the black pants, Gore would surely claim that anything that happened was consensual.
The details described to the Portland Police as told by The Oregonian are certainly colorful, and what caught my eye were the descriptions of Gore by the alleged victim, which inspired this poll:
Due to circumstances, I haven’t posted one of these for a while. Glad to do it again though…
Lindsay Graham changes his mind about global warming science, wind farms increase CO2 emissions, hippies unwitting unleashed a molepocalypse and electric cars cannot save the planet. It’s another busy week, handily rounded-up for you.
Part One: Al Gore & Friends
The Goreacle has been in the news again this week, but mostly because of his conjugal crisis rather than any ‘climate crisis’. It turns out that the perfect union of Tipper and Al wasn’t so perfect. She was prone to ‘jealous rages‘ and he was prone to porking the producer of An Inconvenient Truth. All of this is personal tragedy, nothing to do with global warming. Except that by divorcing Al and Tipper will double their carbon footprint. Some people stay together for the kids… can’t the Gore’s do it for Gaia?
Al celebrated the swing in public support against offshore drilling and brags that it is the end of ‘drill baby drill’. One question, America still needs the oil, none of the alternative energies are anywhere near efficient or reliable enough… so where will the oil come from. My guess, the law of unintended consequences will see a rush back to drilling, but on land where the risks are much reduced and costs lowered. ANWR, anyone?
By EditorAl GoreComments Off on Drudge Siren: ‘STAR MAG: GORE AFFAIR – DEVELOPING…’
No story up yet on Star Magazine, if you even really care about this story. This may surprise some readers of this blog, but I really don’t care if Al Gore is separating from his wife, divorcing her, or having an affair on her. That is a personal issue that does not concern the subject matter of this blog. The purpose of this blog is to report on Al Gore’s lies about catastrophic man-made global warming.
Al’s separation? His son’s personal problems? His weight? His supposed affair? None of those issues will be addressed here unless it turns out that there is a connection to his fanning the flames of fear of his made-up coming catastrophe.
Star Magazine now has the story up. Long story short: Gore’s mistress is Laurie David. No surprise there , I suppose.
We now return you to regularly scheduled programming.
Our clever planet tries to offset a volcano by grounding aircraft, a hippie lawyer wants ‘deniers’ tried for ecocide and those skeptics outside of the USA will be very surprised to learn that they are all Republicans.
So, what better week to have a right of center hottie?
Part One: Al Gore & Friends
Al Gore took a tough line against coal this week, especially mountaintop mining. He praises efforts to put thousands of people out of work and make energy more expensive for Americans. Of course, that means that the EPA will have to declare another non-pollutant a pollutant:
“The legislation, which is co-sponsored by Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), would redefine mining waste as a pollutant, thus barring companies from dumping debris into valleys below their mountaintop projects. The idea is that if it becomes too expensive to truck the debris off-site, then companies will stop blowing up mountains altogether.??”
Coal was only the first fuel that Al wasn’t happy about, he also had his first disagreement with President Obama over the cynical new drilling initiative (that pretty much doesn’t allow for much actual, um, drilling)
Now we know why Kleiner Perkins tried to hide their involvement:
Kleiner Perkins, a firm that loudly promotes its most promising investments, for years didn’t list Terralliance on its website and declined multiple requests to comment for this article. Despite interviews with many of the key people involved, it’s also not clear what exactly Terralliance’s technology purported to do, or how well its investors understood it. What is certain is that Terralliance’s gambit to become a force in oil exploration ended badly.
On MSNBC’s Ed Shultz Show, New Yorker magazine’s senior editor Hendrik Hertzberg, remarking on his article (Mr. Justice Gore) he wrote for his magazine, argues that Al Gore, nor anyone else, really needs any legal experience to become a Supreme Court Justice. Hertzberg:
“Well I think the fact that he’s not an attorney is actually one of the arguments for him. There’s no requirement in the Constitution that a Supreme Court justice has to be an attorney, and the kind of issues the Supreme Court deals with are not the little technical, this, little technical problems of the law or, or the interpretation of particular statutes, it’s these much broader questions about the Constitution.”
Hey, if Al Gore doesn’t need to be a scientist to travel the world in a private jet assuring us that “the science is settled”, why in hell would anyone think he’d actually need to be an attorney or a judge to sit on the Supreme Court.
For that matter, why does Al Gore need any real credentials to do anything? He was the Vice President of the United States for chrissakes! He should be able to do anything he damn well pleases! Need a triple bypass? Al Gore will gladly handle that for you.
Al Gore: "I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are...."
