Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have added aMontecito/ Santa Barbara CA -area property to their real estate holdings, reports the Montecito Journal.
The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Some of the most memorable images from Al Gore’s movie, An Inconvenient Truth, are the graphics that show how rising ocean levels will dramatically alter our planet’s coastlines. As Greenland’s ice sheets collapse, Gore predicts that our shores will be flooded and sea-bordering cities will sink beneath the water leaving millions of people homeless. His narration tells the audience that, due to global warming, melting ice could release enough water to cause at 20-foot rise in sea level “in the near future.” Al PT Barnum Gore…
GORE LIES TO CONGRESS
Certainly not bad for a guy who supposedly was worth ONLY between one and two million dollars in 2000.
Were the “Always Fascinated by the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” press interested?
According to LexisNexis, apart from the Los Angeles Times that broke this story last Wednesday, and Fox News’s Sean Hannity who spoke about this on consecutive nights, America’s media were totally mum.
Why might that be?
Before you answer THAT question, consider what the Nobel Laureate told Congress last year as the House was deliberating cap-and-trade legislation:
AL GORE: Every penny that I have made, I have put right into a non-profit deal, Alliance For Climate Protection, to spread awareness of why we have to take on this challenge. And Congresswomen, if your, if, if you believe that the reason I have been working on this issue for 30 years is because of greed, you do not know me.
Now, imagine for a moment there were actually journalists still in America and not advocates pretending to be journalists.
A former Vice President who last year told a House committee he was putting all of his earnings into a non-profit company to “spread awareness of why we have to take on” global warming a year later buys a $9 million mansion with six fireplaces, five bedrooms, and nine bathrooms for him and his wife.
BELOW IS AL GORE’S RIVER BOAT:
“It’s official name is ‘Bio-Solar One’, BUT JUST THINK OF THE MORE ACCURATE ACRONYMS:
FOR EXAMPLE: “BULLSHIT ONE”, “HMS ECO-HYPOCRISY” ETC. ETC.
LOCATED 60 MILES EAST OF NASHVILLE AT CENTER HILL MARINA, IS FASCIST AL GORE’S RIVER BOAT.
Don’t you think SOMEBODY should have reported it other than Fox News, the LA Times, and conservative bloggers?
Where’d the money come from? Was this purchased by his non-profit corporation, and if so, how does he get away with that?
Did he sell some of his Google or Apple stock?
And how about some questions about how green the house is? Are there solar panels and windmills to power this facility? If not, what are their plans?
- A Call For An International Justice Tribunal: Bring To Trial, Those Who Continue To Perpetrate Carbon Taxation Fraud Scheme Upon Humanity As A Whole.
Forgetting all of that, if the Clintons, Bushes, or Cheneys bought such a place, do you think the media would cover it, at least as a human interest story?
For over three years, Gore’s adoring press have followed virtually every move he’s made since becoming the voice of global warming.
He buys a STUNNING villa as the unemployment rate stands at almost 23 percent and Americans are struggling to regain their footing after 2008’s financial crisis, and the media are suddenly disinterested in him?
On exactly which planet, be it cooling or warming, does THAT make any sense?
A straight answer?
“The theories – the ideas she expressed about equality of results within legislative bodies and with – by outcome, by decisions made by legislative bodies, ideas related to proportional voting as a general remedy, not in particular cases where the circumstances make that a feasible idea… ”

- Increasing Cold Front For Climate Shills: Science-Based Analyses Insurmountable, Despite Bureaucratic Corporate Tricks.
Gore held out for prime time media coverage in order to cast his vote in favor of the Gulf War.
Equal…if not more so?”When my sister and I were growing up,” Mr. Gore told a small audience made up mostly of women, “there was never any doubt in our minds that men and women were equal, if not more so.”
(Source: NY Times, 08/12/00)
Equal – if not more so? More so what? More “equal”? Who is more so? If two things are equal, what is the “more so” for?
Gore didn’t reverse John 3:16, but he DID reverse Matthew 6:21
During the second debate, while discussing the environment, Gore said:”And I’m a grandfather now. I want to be able to tell my grandson, when I’m in my later years, that I didn’t turn away from the evidence that showed that we were doing some serious harm. In my faith tradition, it is written in the book of Matthew, ‘Where your heart is, there’s your treasure also.’ And I believe that we ought to recognize the value to our children and grandchildren of taking steps that preserve the environment in a way that’s good for them.”
Gore got the quote from Matthew 6:21 backwards. Matthew 6:21 states: “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” This follows verses 19 and 20 which say: “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal.”
This quote has nothing to do with the environment; it has to do with devotion to salvation The Bible verses specifically refer to being careful where you store your treasures – it follows the the reason would have to be because heart follows treasures. So not only did he misquote and misuse the quote – it is obvious he didn’t know the context of the verse.
Don’t Forget This Jewel
One thousand billion million trillion…Oct. 25 2000 JACKSON, Tenn. (Reuters) — Criticizing Bush’s Social Security privatization plan at a rally in Tennessee, Gore said, “He is proposing to privatize a big part of Social Security and he’s proposing to take $1 trillion, a million billion dollars out of the Social Security trust fund and give it as a tax incentive to young workers.”
A trillion is one thousand billion, not a million billion.
Execute a pregnant woman? Uhh… I don’t know ~ On July 16, 2000 during a “Meet the Press” interview, Gore was asked if he would be in favor of postponing the execution of a pregnant woman. His hesitant response was “I’d have to think about it”.
Apparently not prepared for this curve ball of a question, Gore must have been so conscientious about upsetting his pro-choice constituency that he couldn’t even give the answer that was obvious to every member of the House which in uncharacteristically unanimous fashion passed legislation shortly after this interview to prohibit such a practice.
RUSSERT: Right now there’s legislation which says that a woman on death row, if she’s pregnant, she should not be executed. Do you support that?
GORE: I don’t what you’re talking about.
RUSSERT: It’s a federal statue on the books that if a woman is pregnant and she’s on death row, she should not be executed.
GORE: Well, I don’t know what the circumstances would be in that situation. I would–you know, it’s an interesting fact situation. I’d want to think (OFF-MIKE).
The full transcript is available here.
$29 dollars a week can buy a lot of Diet Coke ~ In his 2000 convention acceptance speech, Gore said the Bush tax cut would save the average family 62 cents a week (“enough for a diet coke”). He later clarified it and said 62 cents a day per family… which is still wrong. Even at 62 cents a day, that’s only a little over $226 a year. Under the Bush tax plan, the average family would save $1500 — $4.20 a day, which is almost $29 dollars a week.
Collecting cans for prescription drug benefits! ~ During the October 3, 2000 Presidential debate, Gore mentioned 79-year-old Winifred Skinner, who has become the campaign’s mascot for his Medicare prescription-drug program. “In order to pay for her prescription drug benefits, she has to go out seven days a week, several hours a day, picking up cans ,” Gore said. “She came all the way from Iowa in a Winnebago with her poodle in order to attend here tonight.”
However, Skinner doesn’t need to collect cans for her medication. Her son, Earl King, who formerly owned his own business and now lives on an 80-acre ranch and describes his lifestyle as “comfortable,” has offered repeatedly to help her make ends meet. She continually declines his offers. In addition, the Winnebago Gore referred to, as well as the gas, was paid for by the Gore campaign. Five campaign workers accompanied Skinner, a longtime Democrat and former union organizer.

I was there with James Lee Witt…oh, wait…. ~ In the Presidential debate on October 3, 2000, Governor George W. Bush gave credit to the Federal Emergency Management Service (FEMA) for their work in Texas during fires and floods in Parker County. Vice President Al Gore said “I accompanied James Lee Witt down to Texas when those fires broke out.” Carl Cameron, of Fox News first reported that Gore had not, in fact, been to Texas with Witt to look at the damage in Parker County. Gore WAS in Texas, but FEMA officials said Witt never went to Texas to deal with the 1998 fires.
To say that he was traveling with Witt implies strongly that Gore was traveling to a location in an official capacity. Gore was on his way to a fundraiser, and happened to run into FEMA people at the airport. The purpose of his trip was to attend a fundraiser, NOT to see the damage, as Gore implies. While Gore has accompanied Witt on other occasions, Gore didn’t on this occasion, AND the purpose of this particular trip wasn’t even connected with the disasters. Some claim Gore just “forgot” that Witt wasn’t with him on this occasion… did Gore also forget the purpose of this particular trip?
“If James Lee was there before or after, then you know, I got that wrong then,” Gore said on ABC’s Good Morning America on October 4, 2000.

I was part of those discussions! Really! ~ At a Sept. 22 press conference, Gore stated “I’ve been a part of the discussions on the strategic reserve since the days when it was first established.” However, President Ford established the Strategic Petroleum Reserves when he signed the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA) on December 22, 1975 — two years before Al Gore became a congressman
(Source: Washington Post, Sept. 24 2000)
(note: it was actually 13 months, not 2 years as the Post states)
Now, technically, 1975 was when it was declared U.S. policy to establish a reserve, but the reserve was not established (sites purchased or built, etc) until 1977, when Gore was in Congress. However, isn’t this yet another case of “fuzzy wording”? Gore phrases the initial statement to give the impression that he was somehow responsible or “part of something” from the outset, but leaves wiggle room so that he can later justify the statement. And isn’t saying he was part of “discussions on the strategic reserve” meant to leave the impression that he was was part of the planning process, prior to the sites being purchased, etc? Decide for yourself.
A dog’s health care costs less than my mother-in-law’s! ~
Vice President Al Gore, reaching for a personal example to illustrate the breathtaking costs of some prescription drugs, told seniors in Florida that his mother-in-law pays nearly three times as much for the same arthritis medicine used for his ailing dog, Shiloh.
“That’s pretty bad when you have got to pretend to be a dog or a cat to get a price break” he stated. Gore’s mother-in-law does pay more for her medication, but the generic brand of the drug, which 85% of Americans now use as a cheaper alternative, costs half as much, or one and a half times what it costs for the pooch – not three times. In addition, given the complexities of the marketplace, and the steps people take to get a better deal, it can work the other way around: Pets “pretending” to be humans.
The Gore campaign also admitted that it lifted those costs not from his family’s bills, but from a House Democratic study, and that Gore misused even those numbers: They represent the manufacturer’s price to wholesalers, not the retail price of the brand-name product.
Drug costs often cost more for humans, though, because they are more heavily regulated. Jeff Trewhett, the spokesman for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers Association of America, said the higher costs for the human version of patented drugs is justified because the research, development, and approval costs can surpass $500 million per drug.
But once the drug is approved for humans, the cost to test and approve it for animals is minimal, he said. Interestingly enough, Gore is proposing more regulations on on top of what we have now. Our food also costs 3 times as much as the dog’s… will Gore say that we have to pretend to be dogs to get affordable food?

Let’s play “Insult the Host”
Gore sometimes shows publicly that he lacks Clinton’s finesse. Take a reception in Los Angeles last month. It was Gore’s moment to shine before donors who ponied up $2.8 million. But he wound up egg-faced when he compared electing a Republican as president to rejecting an Oscar-winning team in favor of the producers of the Hollywood clunker ”Howard the Duck.” One of the evening’s hosts, Jeffrey Katzenberg, was a driving force behind ”Howard the Duck.” The crowd tittered.

Hey! It’s Super Tuesday… oh wait…
~ Several Tennesseans tried to cast votes in the presidential primary, thinking that their state was part of Super Tuesday. They weren’t alone. Vice President Al Gore seemed to think so, too. Knox County registrar Pat Crippens said, “I just got off the phone with a gentleman.
I had to explain we’re not Super Tuesday, we’re just next Tuesday.” His office got about 30 calls from confused voters. In 1988, Tennessee and 12 other Southern states decided to hold their presidential primaries on the second Tuesday of March, dubbing it “Super Tuesday” in hopes of gaining national political clout. Several Northern states also held their primaries that day.
More than a dozen states have since moved their primaries to the first Tuesday of the month, creating a new “Super Tuesday.” Tennessee – the vice president’s home state – is among six that have stuck with March 14. As reporters and photographers watched from the lobby of his Nashville headquarters on Tuesday, Gore called a “Miss Ferris” and told her, “Today is the presidential primary in Tennessee .”
His expression changed as he listened to her. “Well, you know, that is right. You are absolutely right,” he said before hanging up and quickly dialing the next number on his voter call list.

The Republicans controlled the Senate in ’93? Do the Democrats know this?
From Meet the Press 12/19/99
MR. RUSSERT: Senator, what did you think of the 1996 Clinton-Gore campaign’s approach to fund-raising?
MR. BRADLEY: I thought that a lot of people in politics were embarrassed by it, quite frankly.
I think Republicans and Democrats were disgraceful in that fund-raising program in 1996. Now, I think Al had the right point. It’s the lessons that you learn. In 1990, I raised a lot of money for my Senate race. I raised too much money. I discovered that you can have too much money in a political campaign.
I think that’s what George Bush is going to discover. Now, in Al’s case, the attorney general investigated it fully and determined that an independent counsel was not needed. And so – and the Republicans might make that an issue, but that’s the reality. But I think the question is what you learn from this. And what I learned is that you’ve had seven years to actually do something on campaign-finance reform, and nothing has happened.
I remember visiting the White House in 1993, Democratic Congress, both Senate and House, and urging the president to act on campaign-finance reform. Now, I don’t know if you were in the loop or not, but the fact of the matter is that no action took place. And when we say what we…
- VICE PRES. GORE: Because all the Republicans voted against it.
- MR. BRADLEY: …what we need to do…
- VICE PRES. GORE: And they controlled the Senate.
- MR. BRADLEY: …what we – where was the effort made, Al, in 1993?
- VICE PRES. GORE: We got every single Democratic senator to vote for it.
Gore and the Internet”
~ During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet” Gore said when asked to cite accomplishments that separate him from another Democratic presidential hopeful, former Sen. Bill Bradley of New Jersey, during an interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN on March 9, 1999.
Gore supported technological advances related to the advancement of the Internet, but to say that HE took the initiative in creating the Internet is a bit much.

A spotted Zebra.”A zebra does not change its spots.” – Al Gore, attacking President George Bush in 1992.
E plu…what?”We can build a collective civic space large enough for all our separate identities, that we can be e pluribus unum — out of one, many.” E Pluribus Unum is the motto on the Great Seal of the United States of America, and is Latin for “out of many, one,” not “out of one, many.”

A new type of tree! ~ Al Gore, giving a speech for Yellowstone National Park’s 125th Anniversary, Albright Visitors Center, Sunday, August 17, 1997: “When we come here, we see the longpole pine and the Douglas fir.”
Sorry Al, it’s LODGEpole. There is no such thing as a LONG pole pine.
Michael who? ~ Maybe Michael Jordan hasn’t made an indelible impression on everyone outside Chicago. Speaking at a D.C. function, Vice President Al Gore, wowed by the Bulls, said: “I tell you that Michael Jackson is unbelievable, isn’t he. He’s just unbelievable.”
( Source: The Chicago Tribune June 17, 1998 )
Manliness Thanks! ~ In 1996, Al Gore visited a school in a largely Hispanic portion of Albuquerque, New Mexico. In an effort to fit in, he decided it would be appropriate to say something in Spanish as he took the stage.
He was probably supposed to say “Muchisimas Gracias”, which means “Very, very much thanks” or possibly “Muchas Gracias”, which means “thank you very much.” Instead, he walked on stage saying “Machismo Gracias” – roughly translated to “manliness thanks.”
There’s a video clip of the press in Albuquerque giggling about it and saying, “Oh well, he’s trying.”
(Source: KOB-TV in Albuquerque, New Mexico, 1996 — does anyone have the exact date or can anyone confirm this?)
Daily Town Hall Meetings” ~ I certainly learned a great deal from 3,000 town hall meetings across my home state of Tennessee over a 16-year period” in Congress, the vice president told NPR’s Bob Edwards.
Do the math. That’s 187 town hall meetings per year, or a meeting in Tennessee every other day for 16 years, including weekends, holidays, vacations, and time spent running for president in 1988 and for vice president in 1992.
Now, Gore never specifically claimed that he was actually at all of the Town Hall meetings, but it certainly sounds like he is trying to imply that he was there when he states that he learned a great deal from 3,000 meetings!
Special exception for Clinton.” ~ I seek this office to restore the rule of law and respect for common sense to the White House.” …
“Americans in every region and in both political parties have been shaken by the betrayal of public trust … and the dishonesty of the public officials.”…
“Any government official who … lies to the United States Congress will be fired immediately.”

Gore must be talking about the standards he’d apply to a Republican White House! After all, he referred to Clinton as “one of our greatest presidents” at the White House Post-Impeachment Pep Rally on December 19, 1998.
Where am I again? ~ Al Gore visited Minneapolis Minnesota on October 12, 1998 and raised several hundred thousand dollars for DFL gubernatorial nominee Hubert Humphrey III and two Democratic congressmen.
Too bad he forgot which state he was in. Gore misspoke when he tried to summarize their commitment to education. “They will be the education team that Missouri needs to move into the 21st century,” he said.
(Source: Minneapolis Star Tribune, October 13, 1998)
Does this mean he’d fire Clinton?” ~ My first pledge will be to restore integrity to the White House. And I’ll fire anyone who has lied to the American people or the United States Congress.”
