Who Did Obama Compete With For His Nobel Prize?

Who Did Obama Compete With For His Nobel Prize?


The Nobel Peace Prize 2007 was awarded jointly to Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr. "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change".

I recently read an article about the death of 98-year-old Irena Sendler, someone I had never heard of. The article alleged that Irena Sendler lost the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize to Al Gore.

Irena Sendler, a candidate for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, is credited with saving 2,500 Polish Jews from the Holocaust.

During WWII, Iliana, got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto.

She had an ulterior motive...

She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews.

Iliana smuggled infants out in the bottom of her tool box she carried, and she carried in the back of her truck a Burlap sack, (for larger kids).

She also had a dog in the back, that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in, and out of the ghetto.

The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog, and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.

During her time and course of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants.

She was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs, and arms, and beat her severely.

Iliana kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out, and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard.

After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it, and reunited the family.

Most of course had been gassed.

Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes, or adopted.

Last year Iliana was up for the Nobel Peace Prize....

She LOST.

Irena Sendler was reportedly a candidate to receive the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, but that honor was not awarded to her. (It's difficult to state categorically that she was "nominated" for the award, since information about Nobel Prize "nominations, investigations, and opinions is kept secret for fifty years.")

I am curious if anyone knows who the Peace Prize candidates were who lost to Obama and what were their achievements.

There were 205 nominations for the 2009 award, which included Chinese and Afghan civil rights activists and African politicians. Colombian Senator Piedad Córdoba,[7][8] Afghanistan’s Sima Samar,[7] Chinese dissident Hu Jia and Prime Minister of Zimbabwe Morgan Tsvangirai had been speculated to be favorites for the award.[2]

Satan, Charles Manson, Torquemada and Vlad the impaler. It still took 4 rounds to get a clear majority.

The money Oh!Bama! received as part of the prize was payment for handing the 1%’ers TRILLIONS of our dollars after the 2008 crash.

That, and millions more in book royalties for that autobiography he had nothing to do with.

Obama has had the most charmed life in history. To paraphrase Churchill: “Never has someone received so much for doing so little.”

But he’s done a lot.

Just like Bill Clinton, he’s worked the 1%’ers for maximum gain right to the very top.

It’s a talent, being a tool of the Big Money without being destroyed by them.

Irena Sendler was a living SAINT in her time. There is a movie about her that Hallmark did that is worth viewing (although it doesn’t tell the incident about the dog). It’s called “The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler”. The nicest jpart of the movie is that it shows a few clips of the real Sendler before her death. What a beautiful lady! I read that in her old age she was actually nursed by some of the children whom she saved.

” - - - The Nobel Peace Prize 2007 was awarded jointly to Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr. “for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change”. - - - “

As of this writing, there is no Scientifically proven, laboratory tested, peer-reviewed, published article on any known Cause and Effect between the amount of CO2 and change in air temperature.

In the field, for example, the Global ppm of CO2 has increased in the last 17 years, but the Global air temperature has not changed, or has gotten colder depending on the site being measured.

Last year the Arctic Ocean Ice Cap grew in area and thickness with Global CO2 at its highest level, providing yet another addition to the very long list of field test failures to the proponents of the pop-culture, junk science speculation called “Global Warming.”

CO2 is essential for plants to obtain Carbon, and thus CO2 is an environmentally friendly Green House Gas right along with the most abundant Green House Gas, Water Vapor.

BTW, Water Vapor abundance in the atmosphere is 25,000 ppmillion, and CO2 is 400 ppmillion, +/-, adjusted for volcanic and seasonal variation.

Fear-mongering, Spendaholic Politicians can fool some of the real Scientists some of the time, but they have convincingly proven that they can fool all of the “junk scientists” all of the time.

Since abundant CO2 is essential for Green Plants to grow by the process of Photosynthesis, we FReepers are duty bound to break down the Spendaholic Politician’s Barrycades that un-Scientifically discourage the increased generation of life-giving CO2.

Let us as FReepers storm the Anti-Green Energy, “Phony CO2 Barrycades” of the Spendaholic Politicians with the following chants:

“Support Green House Gas Increases:
CO2 means more plant food for you;
Carbon is a Plant’s Best Friend;
Make more CO2, not more Taxes;
Bring back our life-giving Coal fired plants:
Support the Green Energy Revolution!”

My guess is Irena could care less about the Nobel peace prize. All she cared about obviously were those children.

At any rate, we have reached the point were an honest and decent person, if ever awarded the prize again, could sue the Nobel committee for defamation of character.

Ideology trumps achievement for the Nobel Peace Prize. Has for years. Remember when Carter won it, just to stick a thumb in George W. Bush’s eye? I do. The committee said so at the time.
