Enlist now! The first 500 people to sign up for the fight to save the planet from carbon emissions get a free ride in Gore’s private jet!
The nation’s leading climate change advocate, former Vice President Al Gore, is creating a mini army of “climate leaders” to push governments and companies around the world to adopt policies aimed at reducing global warming.
On Wednesday in Chicago Gore will host his second “climate reality leadership corps training” this year where his Climate Reality Project will show supporters how to talk about the issue and push for solutions to carbon burning.
As if the Goracle’s sham didn’t have enough of a cult-like feel.
As usual, Gore’s timing to peddle global warming is impeccable. He chose July because he could use the high temperatures caused by… summer… to use it as proof of global warming, but Chicago’s (and much of the country for that matter) coming off a weekend of record low temps and heading into a very mild week. The Gore Effect is alive and well.
Two headlines from last week.
The first via CNN: Obama: Rest of my presidency is for working-class America
Second from Politico: Obama: Will use ‘every minute of the 1,276 days remaining’
Fast forward to today:
From the Washington Examiner: Obama Vineyard vacation at $7.6m private resort, over 75 rooms booked for staff
Those staffers must be the “working class America” to whom Obama is going to devote “every minute” of the rest of his presidency.
I know the left wants everybody to think that Republicans have sole dominion over the “war on women,” but just in case that’s not entirely true, here’s a new Democrat recruiting poster:
And I’d add to the Democrat “war on women” the half million or so females who are annual victims of the left’s fight for “choice.” Oddly enough they’re allowed to get away with tagging opponents of this slaughter as haters of women.

Juror “B-29” is baffling.
1) She voted to acquit George Zimmerman.
2) She’s now saying Zimmerman “got away with murder.”
3) She said there wasn’t enough evidence to convict Zimmerman of the charges:
“That’s where I felt confused,” Maddy told Roberts. “But as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can’t say he’s guilty.”
So then how can she justify saying Zimmerman got away with murder? With the overwhelming lack of evidence?
My guess is this is an attempt to placate the lynch mob.
I’m always amazed by how the liberal mind works — or doesn’t as it were.
Here’s a question about guns from tennis legend Martina Navratilova:
The question she should be asking is “How do the criminals with guns spot law abiding citizens without guns?”
Law abiding citizens with guns are easy to identify, Martina… they’re the ones not using their guns to commit crimes.
The flaw in her thinking is that if law abiding citizens were denied access to guns via radical legislation, then criminals wouldn’t have them either, and then Martina Navratilova wouldn’t have to spend time asking a dumb question. But that leads us back to “they’re called criminals for a reason.”
The only way Navratilova could have her mind put at ease would be if the government banned the possession and carrying of guns across the board. That way, Martina could rest easy in the knowledge that the only people who would be carrying guns were criminals, and as a result she wouldn’t have to try and spot the law abiding gun carriers (saves time). I don’t understand why that would comfort anybody, but then again I’m not a liberal.
A few days ago I ran across some people on Twitter who were asking half-jokingly, “what’s next, a boycott of Florida orange juice because of Florida’s ‘stand your ground’ law?”
Which brings us to this headline from CBS News: Martin Luther King III suggests Fla. orange juice boycott to protest “Stand Your Ground” law
Punish orange growers for a state law that had nothing to do with Zimmerman’s acquittal? That sounds about right.
Just to put the official seal of “dumb” on this story, Al Sharpton agrees: Boycott orange juice we much.
Even before this story was confirmed I figured it was true. The online name “Carlos Danger” has such an excruciatingly high douche-factor that one of the few places it could lead would be to Weiner:
New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner confirmed the authenticity of new lewd, sexually charged online chats that were posted by a nightlife website over the past day.
Nightlife site “The Dirty” posted images of conversations that allegedly came from Weiner to a 22-year-old woman under the pseudonym “Carlos Danger.”
“I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have,” Weiner said in a statement released by his campaign Tuesday afternoon.
He informed us previously, and he was right. Add “honesty” and “accuracy” to his campaign platform.
This latest story isn’t part of Weiner’s first batch of trouble either. The above conversations took place after he resigned from Congress.
There is simply not enough shame to make that guy just go away.
All we can do now is sit back and eagerly await tomorrow’s NY Post headline.
The people who are paying for this still can’t take a tour of the White House, however:
The first family is returning this summer to Martha’s Vineyard, the third time the Obamas have vacationed on the exclusive Massachusetts island in the past four years.
President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will arrive August 10 and stay through August 18, the White House said earlier this month.
The vacation is drawing some criticism about the president relaxing among the rich and famous while drastic cuts to the federal budget known as sequester kick in with full force, including the start this month of furloughs for 85 percent of the Defense Department’s civilian workforce.
At the same time, John Kerry will definitely not be on his boat in Nantucket, even though he probably will be.
Tomorrow morning I’m having a medical “procedure,” and the prep involves not being able to eat solid food all day today. Geraldo Rivera has made it a lot easier (click with extreme caution). Thanks Geraldo.
The world reacts:
Barack the Humble:
Actually, that Twitter account is operated by Organizing for Action, which for that tweet was apparently operated by these sycophantic CNN hosts, who acted as if their coffee had been spiked with Spanish Fly:
