NoisyRoom By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton I remember 9-11 as if it were yesterday. The shock, the horror, the tears… the vows of ‘we will never forget.’ Evidently, Al Gore couldn’t be bothered with that memory. Money was way too important – bringing America to her knees was too tempting. He sold Current TV for a cool […]
By: Cliff Kincaid Accuracy in Media The controversy over his sale of Current TV to Terror Television channel Al Jazeera has tended to dominate coverage of Al Gore’s new 558-page book, The Future, about a “global mind” and the “planetization” of consciousness also known as “Earth Inc.” The book is as bizarre as the sale […]
NoisyRoom “I think, first of all, scientists now know that there is, in human nature, a divide between what we sometimes call ‘liberals’ and ‘conservatives,’” Gore told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “And it gives an advantage, you can speculate, to the human species to have some people who are temperamentally inclined to try to change the […]
It’s 2013 and Al Gore is in the news again.
This time not simply because he’s selling his cable station, but because in doing so, he has attained the glory he always sought: cementing his status as the greatest progressive in all the known world, towering above such giants as actress Jane Fonda, reporter Helen Thomas and Enron adviser Paul Krugman.
And by cementing, we mean transcending, because for all their chumming around with communists, hating Jews and loving government power, none of the others has achieved the stunning heights of relativism, hypocrisy and evangelism that Mr. Gore has. And despite all that warming (and his impressive girth), he does it all without breaking a sweat.
But this is the modern age and there are procedures, so before we rush to the apotheosis of Mr. Gore, let’s review his many, many miracles here on this earth, condensed into a trinity of miraculous acts:
#1) The Miraculous Act of Relativism
On Jan. 2, 2013, Mr. Gore and his partners sold their baby — an unsuccessful cable station where liberals like Keith Olbermann and Eliot Spitzer went to die — for $500 million. (RELATED: Cenk Uygur is more popular than Rush Limbaugh, says Cenk Uygur)
Though we were all surprised to hear the whopping half-a-billion dollar price tag, what caught our attention most keenly was the buyer: The Qatar-funded Al-Jazeera news channel where terrorists and their supporters go to say neat things like the Holocaust was Allah’s “divine punishment” on the Jews. (RELATED VIDEO: Top Al-Jazeera host said Jews deserved Hitler, Holocaust)
So far, putting the whole letting-the-Muslim-Brotherhood-into-40-60-million-American-homes thing is more than a trifle annoying, but on a whole this deal isn’t any huge crime against humanity. After all, in a press release defending his decision, Mr. Gore wrote, “broadcast media is a business, and being an independent content producer in a time of increasing consolidation is a challenge.” The stakes are heightened, however, by news that conservative media mogul Glenn Beck broke: He tried to buy the network but was rebuffed, with the folks at Current saying “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view.”
So while we hate to judge before all the facts are in, it sure looks like Mr. Gore wasn’t just thinking business, he was thinking who could carry on his channel’s progressive legacy. And, in keeping with progressive tenets, an American conservative is not that carrier — an anti-American news station run by foreign royalty in support of Islamic fundamentalism is.

But while a gold star in moral relativism may get Mr. Gore a bust in the progressive pantheon, it hardly makes him the greatest progressive in all the known world. But don’t worry — there’s more.

BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian rebels on Saturday threatened to storm two predominantly Christian towns in the central part of the country if residents do not “evict” government troops they say are using the towns as a base to attack nearby areas.
A video released by rebels showed Rashid Abul-Fidaa, who identified himself as the commander of the Ansar Brigade for Hama province, calling on locals in Mahrada and Sqailbiyeh to rise up against Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces or prepare for an assault.
“Assad’s gangs in the cities are shelling our villages with mortars and rockets destroying our homes, killing our children and displacing our people,” said Abdul-Fidaa, who wore an Islamic headband and was surrounded by gunmen. “You should perform your duty by evicting Assad’s gangs,” he said. “Otherwise our warriors will storm the hideouts of the Assad gangs.”
Abdul-Fidaa accused regime forces of taking positions in the two towns in order to “incite sectarian strife” between Christians and the predominantly Sunni opposition. Assad belongs to the Alawite minority sect, an off-shoot of Shiite Islam.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the activist group which reported the rebel ultimatum on Saturday, said such an attack by rebels could force thousands of Christians from their homes.

Taliban and other al-Qaeda-linked militant terrorist groups have been critical of the activities of such organizations because they provide education for girls, and because they provide polio and measles immunization vaccinations, which the Taliban claims is a secret plot to sterilize Muslims and prevent more Muslim children. by John J.

On Monday, the Senate released its Special Report on the Terrorist Attack at Benghazi. The report is not definitive; there is much information that has yet to be released and/or investigated, but there is one preeminent fact that pervades the entire document and is a damning indictment of the Obama Administration: its refusal to acknowledge that Islamic terrorism is thriving. by William Bigelow2 Jan 2013
