Al Gore, Capitalist

The vast majority of Americans will become significantly less wealthy as a consequence of the global warming lunacy currently unfolding in the District of Criminals. But not Al Gore: he stands to make a fortune off the pernicious hoax he has done so much to promote. His defense when called on it by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) was priceless:

The Goracle's money quote:

Do you think there's something wrong with being active in business in this country?

This from a slimy profiteer who will help drive countless jobs overseas by making it all but impossible to be active in business in this country — unless that business is the global warming swindle. The arrogance of our moonbat ruling class is truly staggering.

Meanwhile, as Prince Albert asserted the pride he takes in looting his country through fraud and crony capitalism, Lord Christopher Monckton — former science advisor to Margaret Thatcher and an outspoken critic of the hoax Gore has been exploiting — was forbidden to testify, despite having been invited by Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX), Ranking Member on the Energy & Commerce Committee.

We don't need to hear from "deniers" now that we have a "consensus," right Prince Albert?

On tips from Burning Hot, Charles O, and Antara.

That is great. It should especially resonate with his moonbat anti-capitalist fans. Watch them now come rushing to the defense of profiteering! It is wonderful to see individual cracks form that start splintering and separating moonbat factions as they struggle with their own conflicted, confused views.

Gore would sell heroin to school children, peddle black market kidneys and corneas from unwilling donors, whore out any female relative, and perform in sex clubs with animals for money. He would lie, cheat, and steal even more than he has--if were possible. He is one of the worst examples of human beings possible and probably the worst if it weren't for Obongo and crew who are running up their own score. I think the special ring in hell reserved for him will have some very cold temperatures.

Notice how he never really answered the question and launched into his spiel about "zOMG teh greenhouse gasses!!!1!!"

Why can't Al just put all of the 'harmful' CO2 emissions into his 'lockbox'?

Or is that where he is going to hide all of the money he stands make from this cap and trade piracy?

Unfortunately, the spin from this will be that the Goracle is oh-so altruistic because all his profits go directly to his "Alliance For Climate Protection". We can only HOPE that someone will actually Follow The Money and investigate that claim.

Blackburn did a good job as far as it went, someone still needs to pin him down for answers to these Ten Questions For Al Gore (I especially like #7.)

What a Scum Bag!!! Ask him to provide proof he is" Donating all his money. After the stone walling, After the stalling,all involve in an investigation will be, accused of being a bigot,Hate monger and any other the left can conger up....

Donating every penny but no dollars.

Again a fundamental principle of liberal dialectic at work; viz, stupidity assumes everyone else is stupid.

Gore will say anything to get his great speckled ass off the hot seat. He knows that it would take a special committee to pry an accounting of "every penny" donated to charity out from his greasy fingers.
He continues this testimony with double impunity since Monckton, the C02-Global warming skeptic, was not allowed to speak.

And BTW Gore has never debated his thesis of GW with a single scientist--- a stress test for any evidence-based hypothesis.

He is a disgrace to primates generally, but especially to science. So it is remarkable that so many scientists have lined up behind him with their puny, questionable data spreadsheets waiting for their grants to be handed to them.

Lyin sack of green-dyed fat.

Could this be the same non profit that pays for his private jet travel and reimburses his extravagant lifestyle? Of course he puts into a non profit, can you say "I don't pay taxes that way?"

Posted by: WRPAC at April 26, 2009 7:02 PM

Even if he does put all of his profits into his nonprofit organization, what kind of a salary does he draw from that organization?

Posted by: Kevin R at April 26, 2009 8:35 PM

Kevin R - I think this answers your question. Note that Gore dodged Blackburn's question "Are you willing to divest yourself from any profit ...?" That's because he's only putting his guaranteed income [not profits] from Kleiner Perkins into his non profit ... and if his fellow travelers pass climate change legislation -- he and his partners are poised to cash out big.

From Newsweek:

Gore has pledged to hand over his KP "salary" to Alliance for Climate Protection ... But the gift is more symbolic than material. Gore's salary—his cut of the 2 percent "management fee" that KP partners get on all investments—is typically a sliver of the total compensation that VCs receive. If Gore's profit-sharing deal is anything like the firm's other 23 partners, he's also in line to collect tens of millions of dollars a year. That's because partners carve up 30 percent of the profits if and when the alternative-energy start-ups that KP supports go public or are sold. (Kleiner Perkins declined to comment on Gore's compensation, but his communications director, Kalee Kreider, confirmed that he plans to donate only his "guaranteed income" to charity.) Should Gore's prospecting unearth a clean-energy gold mine the size of Google—which earned billions for KP partners—his share of the loot could make him U.S. history's richest ex-veep. ... The firm is notoriously secretive about its finances, and it's unlikely that KP would strike a deal with Gore if the association could subject the firm to public scrutiny.

Anybody who understands "non-profits" knows how lucrative they can be for the directors and board members. Hiding behind an altruistic label doesn't make the enterprise any less a business when income is spent on lavish lifestyles for those running the operation. What a scam!

Al Gore is a pathalogical liar and he make a profit from his lying and fabrications and receives two undeserved awards for his lies from crinimal judges and ol FLU-BIRD is ready to ralph up on the carpet

Posted by: Flu-Bird at April 27, 2009 7:43 AM

Al Gore was worth $2 million in 2000 and $100 million in 2008. Um, I don't think he was being honest about putting all of his profits into charity.

It's OK for politicians to be in business as long as it's not "big" oil or Halliburton.
