Oh, yeah, I'm gonna hide my donation to save the world under a barrel.

Last year, when he announced a $300,000,000 ad campaign to push his greedy agenda he wouldn't reveal the sources of the funding, saying they were 'internet and anonymous' donors. That made even Andy Revkin wonder a little.
=====================================

clarice

Doing well by doing good explains also the rich lawyers pumping "green energy" while all the media hides the fact that we are awash in gas easily recoverable in shale fields..from Pennsylvania to Louisiana and now IIRC California..Not enough for the parasites to suck off I suppose so no elite interest in that news.

Jane

The Pelosi part is perfect for YOU TOO

Jane

Hey! Where is my post. I had to go thru 2 verifications for it.

Typepad is going nuts again.

bgates

Wasn't John D Rockefeller the first "carbon billionaire"?

bgates

I am sure Dick Cheney was proud of the work done by Halliburton in supporting American interests in Iraq

Undoubtedly. He had no financial interest in them doing so, though.

clarice

He was started down that road at birth. His crummy old man was on Armand Hammer's payroll--you know the energy mogul in bed with the Russians.
Al didn't fall far from the tree.

DebinNC

The jetsetting Algore was also a hypocrite re tobacco, benefitting from its sale as long as possible, then later using his sister's death from lung cancer to boost his career. LUN

BR

JOMers weren't born yesterday!
Well remembered, Clarice.

Gabriel Sutherland
His crummy old man was on Armand Hammer's payroll--you know the energy mogul in bed with the Russians.
Didn't our President somehow matriculate to Hammer's Occidental College by sheer luck? And later transfer to Hammer's own Alma Mater in Columbia University?

Strange is it how Obama always ends up connected to energy speculators that depend on the coal business as the bedrock of their energy empire.

Old Lurker

LUN is a WSJ piece on the Gore roots from the Way Back Machine. Among the key words are Armand Hammer, Financial General, Zinc Mining on Gore Land.

MayBee

Obama's step father was in the energy biz, too.

Patrick R. Sullivan

Not only did Cheney not profit from Haliburton's business while Veep, upon becoming such, he donated millions of dollars of stock options to charity.

“All my Republican friends — and independents — are sitting back saying, ‘Oh, what did we do?
Or: 'Yes, we canned'.

It's about time for the bumpersticker: 'No, you shouldn't have'.

"Oh, my, God. What have we done."

You bought a one billion dollar president with a ten cent character.

And yes, TM has a PUK thread now up.

sbw

Ah, the political class!

Add to Reagan's, "Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so."

... and choose to forget so much that's inconvenient.

Mike Huggins

Clarice - "while all the media hides the fact that we are awash in gas easily recoverable in shale fields.

It is amazing how much we have and yet the "green" media idiots practically trip over themselves trying to get away from it. And then you have major deepwater oil finds in the Gulf, and great oil potential in areas of Alaska - Beaufort and Chukchi Sea. It's lunacy, just plain lunacy.

narciso

No, it's not really, there was a kernel of truth in Naomi Klein's otherwise unhinged
essay on "Palin capitalism" They don't like
the hoi polli, the not entirely socialized
in Holdren's formulation, should run riot,
only the anointed are entitled by their class, what is called nomenklatura by another name

Jack is Back!

Why do I think of rats and sinking ships?

Tom,

In the navy they reverse the rat guards:)

In politics they issue them free passes to the press area of Congress.

Neo
Imagine this. At a time of political turmoil, a charismatic, telegenic new leader arrives virtually out of nowhere. He offers a message of hope and reconciliation based on compromise and promises to marshal technology for a better future that will include universal health care.
Welcome to ABC’s “V” the SciFi series

I wonder if the writers will get snarky .. will the White House declare war on ABC ?

Charlie (Colorado)

Okay, folks, I just made a call to my Congresscritter, jared Polis, about the health care bill. now, Jared is about as liberal as he could *possibly* be. Interesting points:

1) the call was transferred to Jared himself

2) he listened with apparent interest to my points about the excessive cost, the ill effects, and the availability of much less expensive ways of attacking the core problems

3) he allowed as how his support of the "public option" was predicated on it paying for itself. I naturally promised to send him my article on "It Ain't Insurance" and he gave me a special email address to make sure he sees it.

Note: this all happened even before I mentioned being an old fan of his Mom's poetry.

Charlie (Colorado)

Neo, a couple of other points:

1) Morena Baccarin is way hotter than Obama. (And I love that suit she's wearing.)

2) The original script for V, long ago, was about the takeover of the US by human fascism; it got the alien aspect to make the story work better.

narciso

But more than Jane Badler, I'd find that hard to believe.

Not as bad as Soros, but in league with him.

Heh, Al Gore, in an interview with Katie Couric, again compares skeptics with people who believe the moon landing was a hoax. Maybe Al Gore knows something about the moon landings that the rest of us didn't know.

Seriously, and more chilling, he is now using the obvious 'religious' aspect of the alarmists into more traditional and mainstream religious movements and is creating climate training seminars specifically for various religions, such as Islam and Hindu.

This is a tremendously evil man.
===================

unɹ puɐ ʇıɥ

I am a skeptic of AGW and think Al Gore is just making it up.

I mean come on,have you ever seen Al Gore and Global Warming,anthropogenic or otherwise,together in the same city,much less the same room?

clarice

Religious huh? He alsmot flunked some crap course like "thinking about science", his only undergrad science course so he's an expert on climatology. And he FLUNKED out of divinity school so he surely knows about religion. (You have to be a real stoner to flunk out of divinity school, don't you?)

clarice

Chaco, you are truly shameless and I'm looking for a new front guy for SCAM. His mother's poetry!!

Charlie (Colorado)

But more than Jane Badler, I'd find that hard to believe.

What, didn't you watch Firefly?

PD

Rush is playing some of Rev. Wright's recent remarks trashing capitalism and praising Marxism and how the latter is better for the poor.

Doesn't he live in a home that cost something like a milliion dollars? Where does he get off mouthing off about "the privileged"?

Charlie (Colorado)

Chaco, you are truly shameless and I'm looking for a new front guy for SCAM. His mother's poetry!!

But, but ... I was telling the truth! His mom is a local poet. He got his great piles of money because his folks used to have a little greeting card company that they then extended onto the net; they sold it to (I think) Yahoo during the dot-com boom.

For a greeting-card newage poet, she's quite good.

Considering.

narciso

Point taken, Chaco,

Rob Crawford

The original script for V, long ago, was about the takeover of the US by human fascism; it got the alien aspect to make the story work better.

What? Human fascists promising us cures for cancer, the end to hatred, etc. etc. etc?

No wonder they went with aliens. No one would believe people would make such outlandish promises.

clarice

All right, Chaco--it's apparent you aren't shameless enough to be in partnership with me..

Charlie (Colorado)

By the way, I now predict a GOP blow out in all three of the races we've been following.

Why?

because the DNC is apparently circulating notes on why the election doesn't really matter and everything was local.

Their internal polling must be fitting with the PPP folks.

Charlie (Colorado)

All right, Chaco--it's apparent you aren't shameless enough to be in partnership with me..

You know, that was always a problem when I worked on Wall Street, too.

Neo

"Essentially what the judgment says is that a belief in man-made climate change and the alleged resulting moral imperative is capable of being a philosophical belief and is therefore protected by the 2003 religion or belief regulations."

It's official now .. AGW is a religion .. at least in the UK

$1.6M. Though that was last year,so maybe closer to $1M now.

In a neighborhood that is 2% black,93% white,compared to 15% black for all of IL.

unɹ puɐ ʇıɥ

The $1.6M is from more like 20 months ago,fwiw

Rob Crawford

In a neighborhood that is 2% black,93% white,compared to 15% black for all of IL.

Chicago is 36% black, which makes his neighborhood's racial mix stand out even more.


clarice

I still am puzzled about how he manages to pass as black.

unɹ puɐ ʇıɥ

Thanks Rob.

Oh and of course Wright's community is gated. 2.1% is not wanted, IYKWIMAITYD

Dave (in MA)

Charlie (Colorado), no matter the outcome tonight, the NJ race will still probably be within the margin of ACORN. Look how they "found" sufficient "votes" in MN to put Stuart Smalley in the Senate after Coleman won.

Jane

Hot Air is reporting a low turnout so far in heavily democrat areas in NJ - like Newark.

I think the dems will do just about anything to keep Corzine so it will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Charlie (Colorado)

I dunno, Dave. There are a lot of eyes on NJ today. There are limits to how many imaginary votes they can gin up.

Charlie (Colorado)

Okay, follow Campaign Spot. There are a lot of interesting (read "panicked") blog items showing up from Democrats, and some thought that even CA-10 might be close.

Turnout in NJ is something like 2-1 GOP. It might be very difficult to steal enough votes to push that kind of difference in voting.

daddy

"I think the dems will do just about anything to keep Corzine so it will be interesting to see how it plays out."

And of course lets not forget about conveniently forgetting about the ">http://corner.nationalreview.com/post/?q=NzEwODc2YWY0NzRjNzZkOWU1NGMxYWRkOWZjNzI0ODE="> Absentee Military Voters.

Jack is Back!

A 2 to 1 GOP turnout in NJ still puts the Repubs at a disadvantage. You need more like a 4 to 1 turnout there to win. Big union state, in fact, one of the biggest. I've done business there and everyone has a hand out - especially the union guys who are bundlers for the local Dem chairman. Look up all the local Dem chairman that the FBI have put away along with the union chiefs. And yet, they still thrive, like the Taliban in a way. You just can't kill them all.

bad

How low on the income scale will the expiration of the Bush tax cuts hit?

TWoPolitics

It's no wonder that Al Gore bangs the global warming drum so loudly. He's banging for bucks!
