Stunning Pictures of Al Gore's New $9 Million Mansion Media Totally Ignored By Noel Sheppard Created 05/03/2010 - 23:45
Nobel Laureate Al Gore purchased a $9 million mansion in the luxurious hills of Montecito, California, recently, and with the exception of the Los Angeles Times and Fox News, America's media couldn't care less.
You think it might be because the Gore-loving press wouldn't want people to consider the possibility that all of his global warming hysteria was really about lining his wallet and not saving the planet?
Formulate a response to that question as you look at what all that money the former Vice President is making off of spreading this myth can buy (h/t Doug Ross ):
Sweet, wouldn't you say? (Readers are encouraged to view more pictures of this fabulous estate here .)
Certainly not bad for a guy he supposedly  was worth 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 last week, America's media were totally mum.
Why might that be?
You think Gore's adoring press don't want folks to know how much money he's making off this scam?
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.
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?
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 10 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?
well, I read that his family always ran big diesel engine boats on the lakes near Nashville and yet he has the audacity to question the rest of us....
The house that lies built.
I wonder if the president could confirm that Mr. Gore finally has enough money.
Are you sure it is his house and not an insane asylum? ;-)
It’s hard work, saving the planet from the dirty peasants.
A demi-god needs a few palaces.
I want to see the ocean view. Let’s see how much Algore believes that the oceans will rise 200 feet...
I don’t know............looks like a tear down to me
Glenn Beck had a brilliant segment about making enough money yesterday.
He played the clip of Obama saying “At some point I think you’ve made enough money” and then he would write down the estimated wealth of one of Obama’s super rich left wing pals. He did it several times without saying a word.
Don’t think the carbon credits are his only source of income.
Remember Marc Rich who was pardoned by Bubba. There was a Russian connection with the aluminum stock pile and mega IMF loans. The goods were sold and the principle sent from Russia to Zurich, not to repay the loans, but into the pockets of Marc Rich, Bubba and algore.
Well he can be thankful to the folks of Tennessee for not voting for him in 2001, because he would not be near as rich having to do the President thing you know.
“Nobel Laureate Al Gore purchased a $9 million mansion in the luxurious hills of Montecito, California”
Follow the money ...

Actually, I’m not that impressed with the house considering it cost $9 million. Algore got taken!
The upside is this house is in Kalifornia. I can’t think of two entities who deserve each other more than the Profit Algore and Kalifornia. As a Tennessean I sincerely hope he moves there, permanently.
The house looks over priced.
Too bad it wasn’t built in flood-laden Nashville. I’d love to see some video of this place under 10-12 feet of water.
It used to decorate the palace of a king.
Anybody else who lied to Congress would be prosecuted
And this guy wants the Government to control MY thermostat. Pfffftttt.
More sad photos here. It’s called “Italian style” though last time I checked the Italians had better taste, especially in Italy and for $9M.
Very interesting Moorish details however. Hat tip to the Arabs, Al?
Mostly it’s screaming California nouveau (riche). Half Spanish grandee, half shack. Way too close to the neighbors and the road. Convenient to looting revolutionary mobs who will come in the name of the People. (Of Aztlan.)
does he still have the mansion in Tennesee?
I wonder who the previous owner was. If the house went for the asking price could buying it be a payoff for previous services rendered?
It’s the land value.
But, but, he is doing so much good for the people and the planet....
That is a very gloomy, depressing house, and way over-priced!
How long ago were the State-run media howling about Rush Limbaughs sale of his ‘lavish’ NY apt???
Sometimes it seems like a house is big enough.
Excessive and obscene greed!
Algore - livin' LARGE!
That was going to be my post as well.
This place doesn’t even look like it uses passive solar.
I pointed this fact out about his previous house to some libs, and they don’t see it as a problem,
they seem VERY comfortable with the “elite” being able to live entirely different lifestyles and under entirely different rules than the “masses”.
Of course, every lib from the president down to the hemp-stinkinest dreadlocked junior college philosphy major thinks HE’s part of the “elite”.
If he ever drives on Hwy 101 behind my little SUV, I hope he sees my car’s back window stickers so he’ll realize some of us in this area don’t agree with his idiotic ideas.
St. Algore is a blatant hypocrite. The MSM by ignoring Gore’s hypocrisy as well as the Climategate e-mails shows their obvious bias.
Why would they consider that little hovel remarkable? Their own are much nicer.
Now that’s one pool I’d like to dookie in.
“I wonder if the president could confirm that Mr. Gore finally has enough money.”
No, that would kill Cap and Trade.
But, but Sarah Palin ...
And Sarah Palin having the temerity to earn $12 million in 9 months. Certainly SHE must have a HUGE carbon footprint with all that traveling she's doing. ;-)
He swapped it with carbon credits!
Thank you for ping. Updating thug-o-crat and monster ping research [links in profile]. Also, in light of his loony left worshipers ... tempted to update loony left.
