Even some on the Left are put out with Al Gore – not for selling his Current TV to pro-Sharia Law Al-Jazeera – but because Al-Jazeera is owned by Big Oil – the Emir of Qatar! This is liberal radio host Randi Rhodes.

We knew Rush would have a memorable reaction to Al Gore’s selling “Current TV” to Al-Jazeera!
Reports tonight indicate former Vice-President Al Gore and his partners in Cable Station “Current TV” have sold the network to Al-Jazeera:
MEDIA DECODER – NEW YORK TIMES: Al Jazeera, the pan-Arab news giant, has long tried to convince Americans that it is a legitimate news organization, not a parrot of Middle Eastern propaganda or something more sinister.
It just bought itself 40 million more chances to make its case.
Al Jazeera on Wednesday announced a deal to take over Current TV, the low-rated cable channel that was founded by Al Gore, a former vice president, and his business partners seven years ago. Al Jazeera plans to shut Current and start an English-language channel, which will be available in more than 40 million homes, with newscasts emanating from both New York and Doha, Qatar. . . . .
Al Jazeera did not disclose the purchase price, but people with direct knowledge of the deal pegged it at around $500 million, indicating a $100 million payout for Mr. Gore, who owned 20 percent of Current. Mr. Gore and his partners were eager to complete the deal by Dec. 31, lest it be subject to higher tax rates that took effect on Jan. 1, according to several people who insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. . . .

Oh my God. Glenn Beck wanted to buy Current and was found ideologically unacceptable by owners–but not Al Jazeera.nationalreview.com/campaign-spot/…— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) January 3, 2013
Poor Al Gore. Once the Vice-President and then the nominee of his party for President – now not even considered someone “who thinks astutely” about important issues, like Presidential Debates.
So says Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee when asked by Judge Jeanine Pirro about Gore’s bizarre excuse for why Mitt Romney wiped the floor with Barack Obama in the first Presidential Debate. Remember, Gore blamed it on the high altitude in Denver! Jackson-Lee immediately stated:
“That claim never came from President Obama, nor his camp, nor from any of us who think astutely about these issues. . . “
Meltdown! Here is Al Gore and his cohorts blaming Obama’s big loss in last night’s debate – on the altitude in Denver!
To think – this man almost became President!
Here is audio of former Vice-President, turned Global Warming wacko, Al Gore ranting and raving against those who dare to be skeptical of his theory that the earth is warming significantly, and that it is man caused. Gore reportedly made the rant at an Aspen Institute communications seminar last week.
Ever since Al Gore lost the Presidential Race in 2000 to George W. Bush, he has really gone off the deep-end. He has been an alarmist for years, pushing the gloom and doom Gospel about “Y2K” (remember that?) and now his pet disaster scenario – Global Warming (which is now referred to by the most inane name of “Climate Change”).
In the video above, Gore is now advocating population control in order to manage the carbon output of human beings! He urges the “education” of “women and girls” about the need for proper “spacing” of children and good decisions on family size.
It is frightening to think how far these nutcases would go, and just what they would do in the name of saving the planet from carbon emissions from human beings. They are clearly ready to destroy the economy of the United States, and now they are pushing for population control. What will be next?
The Hill — Former Vice President Al Gore on Wednesday praised GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney for his acknowledgement of global climate change.
Gore, who has championed climate issues since losing the 2000 presidential race, posted a note on his blog that praised Romney for being consistent on his position that humans have contributed to rising global temperatures.
“Good for Mitt Romney — though we’ve long passed the point where weak lip-service is enough on the Climate Crisis,” Gore wrote. “While other Republicans are running from the truth, he is sticking to his guns in the face of the anti-science wing of the Republican Party.”

Here is audio of former Vice-President Al Gore telling a conference call of supporters that, “in all candor,” he must tell them that “the United States Government has failed us.” Specifically, he was referring to the “failure” of the U.S. Senate to pass so-called “Climate-Change” legislation.
Gore vowed that “the battle is not over,” urging listeners to keep working for sweeping legislation.
They “failed” only because public opinion is against the massive increases in energy costs that would result from Gore’s radical reordering of our economy. A majority of Americans now see through the hysteria of the Global Warming crowd to the radical political and economic agenda behind what they are peddling.
Here is video of MSNBC’s Chris Matthews attacking Republicans, and mentioning Sarah Palin by name, for supposedly “not using their brains” because they reject was he falsely claims is the settled science on “climate change.” He even cites a 1969 memo by Daniel Patrick Moynihan warning about the dangers of “climate change” as proof that all the dire predictions are true.
Matthews knows that the issue is not about whether there is “climate change.” The climate changes all the time, and the earth has warmed a tiny amount over time. The issue is whether global warming is man-made. If it is not, then we don’t need to destroy our economy and our way of life because of a man-made hysteria. It is that man-made hysteria that many Republicans – millions of Americans – are rejecting. The “green economy” Barack Obama and Al Gore want to create is a gigantic boondoggle to liberal special interests. When Republicans refuse to blindly follow the Al Gore-led Global Warming hysteria that is lining his pockets, “using our brains” is exactly what we are doing.
Here is audio released by Portland, Oregon Police of an interview with the woman who has accused former Vice-President Al Gore of “unwanted sexual contact” against her. The incident allegedly took place in 2006 at a Portland hotel, where Gore was getting a massage from the woman (a massage therapist). In the audio, the woman reads her account of what happened, and goes into great detail.
It was very clear to me I was not the first woman he had sexually assaulted, and that clearly, “No” was not a word he cared about or respected.” – Massage Therapist accusing Al Gore
Here is a local news report on allegations against former Vice-President Al Gore made by a Portland, Oregon masseuse who claims Gore made “unwanted sexual contact” with her during a massage session at a hotel back in 2006. No charges have yet been filed, but police say they are investigating the allegations.
The woman is now claiming she has “a pair of pants” with “DNA” on them to prove that she is telling the truth. The report says the woman is trying to sell her story about the incident for $1 million.
Here is a video report from Portland, Oregon’s KGW-TV Channel 8 which details allegations by a Portland masseuse that former Vice-President Al Gore subjected her to repeated “unwanted sexual touching” in a hotel room back in 2006. No charges have yet been filed, and Gore has given no response to the allegations. The woman has reportedly met with police. The reporter says they have verified that Gore was in Portland on the date that the alleged incident took place.
