A mere acronym of 2 letters (DU) is all it takes to completely destroy Al Gore and his ‘projected’ divine destiny to save the earth from man-made environmental doomsday. But this lesson in hypocrisy doesn’t end there.

I hadn’t actually thought of the lynchpin point until I recently finished Al Gore’s Assault on Reason book. It should have been titled The Assault on Bush as he joked about it not being, in a video interview I seen somewhere online, because there’s hardly a page in it that doesn’t mention GWB and his minions. I counted 105 of 273 pages that included attacks on just the issue of Bush’s Iraq / Foreign-Policy for example.

One could hardly articulate such a sophisticated blackballing, however, Al Gore actually did while bending over backwards to not step into the “conspiracy theorist” world. And his trouncing of the Bush Junta is well deserved and I do recommend all people read this book for that reason, as well as not only his democracy / American history / Media coverage but perhaps most importantly for a lesson in observing left/right political bias.

It’s important that Gore didn’t go full blown conspiracy theorist as that would obviously implicate him with things like 9/11 and Depleted Uranium.


Dennis Kucinich is one of the few with the cajonas to address the DU issue.

In page after page Al attacks Bush’s very essence, and in particular Bush’s environmental policies and the Iraqi Invasion / Occupation. Al slams Dubya on Iraq, while patting himself on the back for the Balkans sectarian conflict that they engineered. The most notable common thread between these 2 conflicts and these 2 men is the Depleted Uranium issue. Others include the engineering conflicts, sectarian conflict scenarios, the use of Al Qaeda as an instrument of proxywars & related tactical subversiveness, and even oil (pipelines).

It turns out that DU has a 4.5 BILLION Year halflife. The “Clinton-Gore Administration”, as Al calls it at every chance in his book, used DU munitions in the conflict that started and lasted over virtually the entire 8 year reign of the Clinton-Gore Administration. To add insult to injury, Gore campaigned in 2000 on (imperialist) nation building, but then blasts Bush for his hegemonic Iraqi power grab because the only difference is that Americans also die this time around in an engineered sectarian conflict.

As a side-note, perhaps Al Gore inherited his stance on the use of Uraium was a weapon from his father.

In the late, 1950s Al Gore’s father, the senator from Tennessee, proposed dousing the demilitarized zone in Korea with uranium as a cheap failsafe against an attack from the North Koreans.

After the Gulf War, Pentagon war planners were so delighted with the performance of their radioactive weapons that ordered a new arsenal and under Bill Clinton’s orders fired them at Serb positions in Bosnia, Kosovo and Serbia. More than a 100 of the DU bombs have been used in the Balkans over the last six years.
http://www.counterpunch.org/du.html

This is what Depleted Uranium does to people:

In all fairness, GWB has become history’s master of the use of these weapons.

Now we have Shrub using the same stuff that is absolutely sure to contaminate the environment until what could be considered the end of time (astro-science models predict that the Sun and life on Earth will expire well before one billion years before the DU munitions reach their half-life), but oddly enough Al Gore somehow managed to forget to mention this little tidbit in his all out partisan Bush crucifixion hit-piece book, which focuses on both the Iraq imperial power move and the environment.

But the hypocrisy doesn’t end there. “The Assault on Reason” (emphasis his) includes an entire chapter on “The Politics of Fear”, which impressively includes the sort of neuro-psychological descriptions of mind matters many would expect from my own writings here at this blog. Now I present to you clear and obvious terrormongering pieces of video propaganda:

Example 1: Look at the language: “IT WILL SHAKE YOU TO YOUR CORE”, BY FAR, THE MOST TERRIFYING FILM YOU WILL EVER SEE”, “Think of the impact of a couple hundred thousand refugee’s, and then imagine a hundred million”, “NOTHING IS SCARIER”.

Note the use of New Orleans Katrina footage, and the fact that the vast majority of damage was due to flooding that was entirely mankinds fault.

And then note how at 2:17 of the trailer there is a 3 frame burst of a nuclear bomb explosion, which is entirely out of context of the presentation. For fairness, he does have a worthy context in the actual film where they use this same –arguably even then scaremonger– clip, but in the context of the preview -that potentially millions watched- it doesn’t fit.

Anyone with even a self-prescribed education in socio-psychological propaganda can quickly tell, from Al Gore’s book and online video interviews addressing it, that Gore is clearly trained in socio-psycholgical propaganda techniques, and because of this fact there is no excuse for the out-of-context terrormongering highlighted in that single clip, which continues on into the follow-up TV commercial:

Example 2: Added terrormonger language: “Grabs you like a thriller with an ending that will haunt your dreams”, “You will be captivated… then riveted… then scared out of your wits”. That cemmercial also includes about 1-2 frames of the same nuclear bomb mushroom cloud used in the An Inconvenient Truth trailer-terror piece.

To “emphasize this point”, about Gore’s hypocrisy, it’s best I point out that there are many pages in his book with entire paragraphs about the Bush Junta‘s selective cherry-picking use of facts and scientific information in regards to most particularly the Iraq War effort and environmental issues.

Gore often claims that “the debate is over” about “Global Warmming” , but it turns out that the debate is in fact not over (see here for some debate). But to directly address his self-described (on the back of the DVD package) “persuasive” propaganda-piece, his central argument is the  650,000 year ice-core ..

It’s just too bad that it’s well established that temperature always lead to the “complex relationships” that Gore presented as if the CO2 drove the temperature:

Ice cores show CO2 increases lag behind temperature

This isn’t even merely a matter of him misreading some graph’s. He went to the extent of calling the ice core specialist as his special friend, and made it look cozy. How could Gore have not understood which came first? How would you not look to see which happens first, before making such strong statements. To waive his 650,000-year-resolution graph around -off of a scissor lift- like some sort of gospel is Hollywood trickery at ‘best’.

This scenario presents us with 2 options, that I can think of.
1) He deliberately engaged in disinfo.
2)He’s too incompetent to hold and so effectively propagate such a staunch belief.

In either case, this is but one of the many examples of Gore using sketchy science during his terrormonger campaign. For a complete lesson in Gore trickery have a look at A Skeptics Guide to An Inconvenient Truth.

Moving on, despite the reality where the D.U. weapons fact destroy’s Gore’s claim to trying to save the environment, this lesson in environmental hypocrisy doesn’t end there. For starters in the AIT film and book Al asks “Are you ready to change your life?”. It’s bad enough that YOU changing your life is the primary solution Al gives us in his film presentation, but then there’s the fact that he doesn’t practice what he preaches.

While he may buy “carbon offsets” each time he travels, it doesn’t change the fact that he flies more in one year than most humans will in their entire lives. He doesn’t just fly to in relations to his global warming activism either, but in that regards he claims in his film that he’s done over 1000 talks since 2001.


Sean Hannity’s excellent piece on Al Gore and jet travel.
(Although I loathe that man too.)

But perhaps his travels can be somehow ignored in light of what he tells us we should do, but unfortunately we can’t rationaize his home habits as being part of the effort to save the earth.

According to Schweizer, the Gores own three homes: a 10,000-square-foot home in Nashville, Tennessee; a 4,000-square-foot home in Arlington, Virginia (across the Potomac River from Washington, DC); and a third home of undisclosed size in Carthage, Tennessee. Neutral Source has verified the Gores own a 2.1 acre property at 312 Lynnwood Blvd. in the Belle Meade section of Nashville, Tennessee (Parcel ID 11611005600). Its assessed value in January 2005 was $3 million, but we have not been able to validate Schweizer’s claims about its size. So we performed a search and found 15 single-family homes on the market in the Gores’ Nashville neighborhood with asking prices of $3 million or more. Of the 298 neighborhood properties on the market, only three are listed at $3 million or more. According to MLS data, these houses are 9.727, 7,340, and 9,878 square feet respectively. So we can confirm that it’s quite plausible that the Gores’ Nashville home is, as Schweizer claims, 10,000 square feet.

So what does that mean?

Still, a rough approximation of the Gores’ residential CO2 emissions can be obtained by assuming that CarbonCounter’s “average” really means “median.” This yields 26 tons x 9.2 = 239 tons CO2 per year. CarbonCounter will “offset” the Gores’ CO2 emissions for a contribution of $10 per ton, and certainly they can afford the $2,390 contribution that CarbonCounter says will buy residential “carbon neutrality.” But actually making a large reduction in CO2 emissions from 17,000 square feet of residential living space would be both very challenging technically, and much more expensive. The Gores are easily capable of being CO2 Pragmatists with respect to residential carbon neutrality, but they cannot be CO2 Puritans without completely abandoning their lifestyle.

In plain English:

Gore’s home uses more than 20 times the national average

So here we have Al Gore telling us that we need change our lives, meanwhile he’s using 20+ times the amount of energy as something like 90+% of the rest of the world population.

While we’re on the energy topic perhaps it’s best to point out that Gore has a record of relations with oil ‘interests’.

Al Gore: The Other Oil CandidateCorpwatch, August 29th, 2000
For thousands of years, the Kitanemuk Indians made their home in the Elk Hills of central California. Come February 2001, the last of the 100 burial grounds, holy places and other archaeological sites of the Kitanemuks will be obliterated by the oil drilling of Occidental Petroleum Company. Oxy’s plans will “destroy forever the evidence that we once existed on this land,” according to Dee Dominguez, a Kitanemuk whose great grandfather was a signatory to the 1851 treaty that surrendered the Elk Hills.

Occidental’s planned drilling of the Elk Hills doesn’t only threaten the memory of the Kitanemuk. Environmentalists say a rare species of fox, lizard and the kangaroo rat would also be threatened by Oxy’s plans. A lawsuit has been filed under the Endangered Species Act. But none of that has given pause to Occidental or the politician who helped engineer the sale of the drilling rights to the federally-owned Elk Hills. That politician is Al Gore.

So in light of that, along with the Clinton-Gore engineered Bosnia-Kosovo proxywar for oil-pipelines, it seems obvious that Gore is a tad more oil friendly than one would expect. It should also be pointed out that Gore was one of only 10 Democrats to break ranks and support the Persian Gulf War, which is interesting considering the history of that conflict. That’s all too bad because US Foreign Policy and wars in general are probably the biggest contributers to the environmental footprint of us human beings.


Ron Paul: the CIA / Foreign Policy contributing to Global Warming; at time 2:25.
Al Gore supports nation building:

Q. Bush made nation-building a point of difference with you [in the Oct. 3 debate].
A. I think that phrase taps into a legitimate concern about how far we should go and how long we should be involved. But it’s not a new mission. The Marshall Plan was about nation-building. And the generation that won World War II, having seen the catastrophe of the interwar period in the 20’s and 30’s, wisely decided that nation-building was a preferable alternative to World War III. And it was a stunning success.

As proven under Clinton-Gore and Bush-Cheney “nation building” also means war, and that brings us to the next big Bush-Gore parallel of hypocrisy. It turns out that both Bush and Gore brag about their Christian faiths, yet somehow each is engaged in the same goal which is a de facto ‘god on earth’ artificial intelligence system.

While Bush is driving this initiative through with excessive militarism, Al Gore on the other hand is driving the same goal with his friends at NASA and Google. Gore is arguably the main man behind this effort, being right in the center of the eye of this whirlwind down there at the main Googleplex HQ, which is situated right next door to the NASA Ames Research Center, in Silicon Valley, where NASA and Google in 2005 entered a partnership in the development of cognitive artificial intelligence.

It’s hard to imagine why a professed ‘man of the faith’ would take part in such an operation, but then again maybe his words on the Larry King Show -in reference to “global warming”- may shed some light on this contradiction: “It’s really a spiritual issue.”

In closing, RAGE said it best:

“…but no matter how you slice it (German Nazism, Italian Fascism & “Divine” Imperial Japan), it was just plain old militaristic imperialism.” – The United States Military

This old documentary titled “Why We Fight” (Part 1: Prelude to War), but this isn’t the same modern film of the same name. This one is the original WW2 propaganda movie put out by the Department of Defense in 1943. The eventual premise put forth to oppose the Axis of Evil was that they were military imperialists (see above quote). Both before and after WW2 the U.S. has been bent on global imperialism, and today is about as close as an empire could get.

This 52 minute video was the first in a 7 part propaganda series that justified American involvement in WW2. This particular entry goes into detail about freedom, slavery, tyranny, American values, (enemy) imperialism and so on.

It documents the rise of the 3 Axis of Evil powers and their systems of domestic and foreign tyranny. The parallels between these past empires and modern America are staggering; too much to list here.
