An embittered former Senator and Vice President Al Gore is seen here en-route back to prison after a federal appeals court refused to review his 20 year sentence for GROSS HYPOCRICY for his lead role as spokesman in the Climategate fraud conspiracy.
The same court recently rejected the appeals of the lengthy sentences of the 137 alleged UN scientists Gores co-conspirators for falsifying data supporting so-called Cap and Trade legislation that trial testimony disclosed would have virtually destroyed what remained of the U.S. economy while unjustly enriching Gore and a cabal of insiders.
During his trial, Gore was notified by the Nobel Committee that he would have to return the large monetary prize and the gold metal awarded him in 2009. He told reporters that the last of his prize money had gone to the lawyers and Tipper pawned his medal when she left him for an achondroplastic dwarf NBA center and filed for divorce after his conviction.
Good. Maybe now Al Gore will go away, grow a beard and get even fatter and less relevant.
"Climate Change" has ALWAYS been about creating a new industry in which nothing has to be manufactured, there is no overhead, and scammers like Al Gore can reap billions.
There is never any lack of suckers to throw their hard-earned cash at smooth-talking fraudsters.
I hope Santa fills your stocking with prostate cancer.
Season's Greetings, jerkoffs.
Shame I can’t ask Santa to fill my ex-wifes’ stocking with some of that. :-(
