Media Praises Gore, Ignores Real American Hero


October 12, 2007

It was not surprising to wake up this morning to the reports of former vice-president and failed 2000 presidential candidate, Albert Arnold Gore Jr. having received the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his specious works addressing Global Climate Change. Given the past nature of this much-lauded award in awarding it to those who most seem in opposition to the wealth and well being of traditional America, I would have been shocked had he not received it.

Past “winners” include the undeniably worst president ever to occupy the Oval Office, Jimmy Carter along with Palestinian Terrorist Leader, Yasser Arafat. Former head of the decidedly anti-American United Nations, Kofi Annan, also is a past winner along with North Vietnamese Communist, Le Duc Tho, who with the help of the anti-war leftists in America, should be held responsible for the senseless slaughter of millions of innocent South Vietnamese, Cambodians and Laotians who couldn’t escape the Communist onslaught after they brought about the abandonment of the Vietnamese people in 1973 and turned their backs on them as they struggled against the Communist takeover in April 1975.

In my view, this “prize” amounts to little more than groups of Socialist Elites back slapping other Socialist elites. But, that doesn’t stop our more mainstream Alphabet media and their minions from acting surprised that someone as inept as Al Gore Jr. was awarded this prize.

Almost ignored in all the ballyhooing is that just yesterday a British High Court judge ruled that Gore's global warming film, "An Inconvenient Truth," while "broadly accurate," contained nine significant errors. How it retains its accuracy, I cannot understand.

This fact goes ignored today as followers of Gore’s push for him to make another run for the presidency and accolades are heaped all over him.

Most shameful is that today, while almost every American can tell you Al Gore’s name and what he is being praised for, the vast majority haven’t an inkling of an idea as to the name of Navy Lt. Michael P. Murphy or why his name should be known.

Lt. Murphy was a Navy SEAL hailing from Patchogue, N.Y. He distinguished himself on June 28, 2005, the day he gave his life in Afghanistan battling elements a vastly superior number of Taliban. The Lone Survivor of that ill-fated mission, Marcus Luttrell, a Navy Cross Recipient himself for actions that day has chronicled the actions that Lt. Murphy is being awarded our Nation’s Highest Honor in a book titled “Lone Survivor.” In part one and part two of an interview with radio host, Glenn Beck, Lutrell speaks of the horrors and bravery exhibited that fateful June day in Afghanistan.

Lt. Murphy is a National Hero at a time our nation needs heroes sorely. Accounts of his bravery and posthumous award of the Congressional Medal of Honor, presented to his family by President George W. Bush may appear in section C of our newspapers or receive a paltry 10 second mention, if that long, on CNN and the other alphabet networks.

In comparison, the unsurprising award of the Nobel Peace Prize to a charlatan as Al Gore, who has never committed a brave act in his life, will remain front page headlines and be bragged about for some time, especially if Gore decides to run for the Presidency again.

To be fair, Al Gore Jr. enlisted for two years in the U.S. Army and served in Viet Nam, for 5 months writing articles about those in combat for the Stars and Stripes. He dropped out of Seminary School and eventually entered politics.
Lt. Murphy declined acceptance to several Law Schools after college, attending SEAL mentoring sessions at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and became a Navy SEAL, probably the hardest and most intense of all Military training. He didn’t have plans to make the Navy his career, hoping to become part of the Counter-Terrorism Group with the FBI. He had been in the Navy for 5 years at the time of his death.

We wouldn't be America without men like Lt. Michael P. Murphy, who have historically and willfully placed themselves between enemies and Americans, too often at the cost of their lives. It isn't the politicians of either party who deserve accolades for accomplishments; it is the Real American Heroes like Lt. Murphy and all of the others like him.

How depressing that at a time when our Country needs Heroes as bad as we do, we are handed a charlatan like Al Gore Jr. and a Real American Hero like Lt. Michael P. Murphy receives so little mention.

Your post might have been more honorable to Lt. Murphy, had you not used him as a springboard to whine about the "liberal" media.

Lew Waters said...

Well, well, well, look what the cat drug in.

The truth of the leftist media bias really hurts, doesn't it?

Since you decided to clutter my blog with your blather, perhaps you can supply the front-page headlines where Lt. Murphy has been honored by the lamestream media.

If you cannot, then perhaps my "whining" is more truthful than you will admit.

Good luck, I'll await links to those front page headlines.

Lew Waters said...

If you cannot find any front page headlines, jimmie, feel free to explain why a pig like Gore is more deserving of a "peace" prize over 97 year old Irena Sendler

Jim said...

I didn't say anything about the media , nor did I render an opinion about Gore, now did I?

I only found it a bit disappointing that instead of simply making a post honoring Lt. Murphy, you used his story to rail against Gore and the media.

Kind of reminds me how Cindy Sheehan used her son's service and death as a platform to promote her opinions...

Lew Waters said...

As expected, Jimmie, you have nothing but your liberal braying.

Since it can't seep into your little head full of mush, allow me to clue you in, son.

This post is intentionally about the lamestream medias fawning all over a POS like Gore while ignoring Heroes like Lt. Murphy and Irena Sendler. That was the purpose of it.

You want to hijack posts, go back to Victoria's.

If you want to comment here, stick to the subject.

Show where the lamestream media has given fair and equal coverage. Failing to do that, go roll another joint.

Jim said...

You're the one calling me a liberal. I'm sorry that asking "if that's all you can do" is offense enough to delete my post.

Looks as though opposing views are not as welcome as you claim them to be.

I don't smoke pot either, thanks.

Lew Waters said...

Whine and cry somewhere else, jimmie. So far you have not said one relevant thing to the subject.

If I really childish, infantile antics, I'll attend a Democrat rally.

Jim said...

I just haven't said anything you agree with.

My position might be different if your blog was filled with post after post honoring those that have sacrificed, telling their stories.

Instead, you've only included Lt. Murphy in your anger filled prose to bolster your opinion.

Bash Democrats all you like, I'm not one of them. The sooner you realize that everyone who shares a different opinion than you may actually not be a liberal nutty leftist Democrat, the sooner you might be able to hold a mature conversation.

Lew Waters said...

I can think of very few things worse than an allegedly grown man crying and whining like a little baby because htey cant get their way.

Go change your diaper and suck on a pacifier, jimmie, the grown ups wish to talk.

Jim said...

"I can think of very few things worse than an allegedly grown man crying and whining like a little baby because htey cant get their way."

Then I suggest you read your post about the media and Gore, and look in the mirror my friend.

Snooper said...

Lemme see if I have read the troll correctly...

"...I didn't say anything about the media..." and then "...you used his story to rail against Gore and the media..."

Yep. The slime trail of a troll.

Thanks for the clarification there, skippy.

Snooper said...

Lew...why is it that trolls cannot stay on topic? OH! WAIT! I KNOW! They cannot refute the data at hand so they try and swerve off topic to lament on their own failures.

My bad.

Snooper said...

Dear troll jimmie...recess is over and your warm milk and graham crackers are on teach's desk.

Snooper said...

GAWD! I hate trolls.

CyberPastor said...

Well, this troll sounds like the infamous "Smedley Butler" from my days back at GOP.com. He always said that he wasn't a liberal, not a Democrat and then always spewed DNC talking points. Nice to see you have your very own "fan club" Lew.

Snooper said...

Lew. I guess your troll won't like this post either.

http://takeourcountryback-snooper.blogspot.com/2007/10/gore-lied-and-millions-laughed.html

So sad to be as troll these days. That Abyss of Obscurity is getting pretty full, dark and hot by now.

Lew Waters said...

Trolls cannot stay on topic nor can they present any relevant retorts.

And, they all think they are being so "cute" with their quips.

Yet, they don't have the cajones to form their own blogs, just cruise around looking for where they spew their ignorance.

Jim said...

Sigh, I love that if one does not exclaim total, 100% agreement with whatever is posted, one is determined to be a liberal, a democrat, off topic, or now it appears a "troll."

Read close snooper, I didn't say anything in regards to the media, and referring to what Lew had said in regards to "the media" doesn't count.

What do you want? Is Gore getting the peace prize lame? Yeah. Does the mainstream media have feature stories about fallen soldiers? Not everyday. Should they? Yes.

Have you considered that maybe these heroes you hail could possibly have held opinions different than yours? If they did, do you think they'd appreciate their association with what you have written?

I'm just sayin...because they can't.

CyberPastor said...

And they all seem to sound exactly the same. Wouldn't it be nice to just one time hear a liberal with a thought of their own? Conservatives, at least those that I am in contact with, have voiced displeasure, anger, and frustration with the current Conservative leaders. Liberals seem to just spew the same venom over and over and over.

CyberPastor said...

And after reading the post to Snooper, are we sure this isn't Smedley?

Jim said...

cyberpastor,

How could you ever think me a conservative? I have opinions of my own, yet you all can't get past your thumb, claiming I'm a liberal!

Tell me how that works, please?

Jim said...

snooper, your link didn't work, could you post it again?

Thanks

Lew Waters said...

And again, jimmie da troll shows his ignorance on a subject.

Have you considered that maybe these heroes you hail could possibly have held opinions different than yours?

Completely irrelevant to a scumbag like Gore grabbing front page headlines and the same media not mentioning a hero being awarded the nations highest honor on the front page. You see, jimmie, it doesn’t matter whether or not they agree with me, they at least served, and voluntarily, if you forgot. When do you enlist and do your part for America?

I'm just sayin...because they can't

Bovine Scatology, son! Lt. Murphy is but the 3rd recipient of the Medal of Honor in this War.

Some words you should read, jimmie.

“In some cases I have never even met you, yet you feel qualified to make character judgments that are communicated to the world. My experience is not unique and we can find other examples such as the treatment of Secretary Brown during Katrina. This is the worst display of journalism imaginable by those of us that are bound by a strict value system of selfless service, honor and integrity Almost invariably, my perception is that the sensationalistic value of these assessments is what provided the edge that you seek for self-aggrandizement or to advance your individual quest for getting on the front page with your stories! As I understand it, your measure of worth is how many front-page stories you have written and unfortunately some of you will compromise your integrity and display questionable ethics as you seek to keep America informed.”

“Personal reputations have no value and you report with total impunity and are rarely held accountable for unethical conduct.”

“All of these challenges combined create a media environment that does a tremendous disservice to America. Over the course of this war tactically insignificant events have become strategic defeats for America because of the tremendous power and impact of the media and by extension you the journalist. In many cases the media has unjustly destroyed the individual reputations and careers of those involved.”

“The death knell of your ethics has been enabled by your parent organizations that have chosen to align themselves with political agendas. What is clear to me is that you are perpetuating the corrosive partisan politics that is destroying our country and killing our service members who are at war.”

Other comments by Ltg. Ricardo Sanchez that the precious media couldn’t see to print in their haste to slam Bush again.

It is not a matter of they “can’t” jimmie boy, it is that they won’t!!

CyberPastor said...

You must have a problem understanding so let me make this REAL CLEAR. I didn't think for one second that you were anything close to a Conservative. And from what I have read on this thread you sound EXACTLY like every liberal I've come across in the blogesphere. I'm no rookie when it comes to trolls.

Jim said...

Alright, now we're heading somewhere...

Lew, I totally agree with you, that there should have been some nice headlines about Lt. Murphy. But that's what's not excitable to news watchers at the moment. Celebrity is, and at the moment Gore is enough celebrity to be exciting. Tomorrow it will be something else. And so it goes on and on.

However, what is it that you are doing differently? You didn't start your rant talking about Lt. Murphy or others - you started it talking about Gore.

I'm sorry, but that only makes your mention of Lt. Murphy an arrow in your political quiver against "the left." I have a hard time understanding how that honors him?

Not one to understand how anyone could like Gore, but there just may be a mere glimmer of a chance Lt. Murphy may have, or at least agreed with what he was doing, or what ever. Since we don't know, maybe we should leave the politics out of his service and honor?

I would say the same thing to Cindy Sheehan, as she drug her son through the mud because of a political stance she decided to pursue.

Lastly, I'm sure you don't think so, but I, nor any other American citizen has to enlist or serve to have an opinion.

Jim said...

cyberpastor, I think you misunderstood my statement, so I'll try again.

You said -
"Conservatives, at least those that I am in contact with, have voiced displeasure, anger, and frustration with the current Conservative leaders."

If I'm to understand you correctly, by your post, that Conservatives voice their own opinions, instead of repeating talking points.

I sir, am voicing my own opinions, different from your or the blog owners own, so by your logic I should be at least near that of a conservative.

Instead I'm made out to be a liberal.

Do you all consider anything different from your own opinions to be DNC talking points, or liberal spew?

Lew Waters said...

jimmie boy, let me type this real slow so maybe you can get it this time.

The entire point of this post was to show the liberal media bias of fawning over Gore while relegating the heroic actions of Lt. Murphy to little or not mention.

It is called a comparison revealing their bias, not imitating Sheehan who stood on her sons grave. Only a liberal cannot see the difference.

but I, nor any other American citizen has to enlist or serve to have an opinion.

And yet another trollish straw man. No one said you needed to enlist to have an opinion. I asked why don't you enlist to do your part for your country.

Snooper said...

Lew. Doesn't this moron of a Leftinistra troll know that you or any of us cannot be spun?

The days of sitting on our collective asses hoping that this fad of liberal stupidity will vanish is no more and the gloves have come off.

Trouncing the ignorance of trolls has become a full-time job and now that I am retired, it is quite relaxing. They are way too easy.

Snooper said...

One of these days, there will be a generation of trolls that will be able to stay on topic. I haven't met one yet.

Snooper said...

Quite a statement Lew...

"...We wouldn't be America without men like Lt. Michael P. Murphy, who have historically and willfully placed themselves between enemies and Americans, too often at the cost of their lives. It isn't the politicians of either party who deserve accolades for accomplishments; it is the Real American Heroes like Lt. Murphy and all of the others like him..."

And so true.

Snooper said...

The troll must be out phishing for more talking dulls to be trounced.

Jim said...

"Only a liberal cannot see the difference."

Oh my, you're just never gonna get over it. I take the same issue with anyone, liberal, conservative, etc, uses soldiers to further political viewpoints. Does that help?

I'm sorry if I've misunderstood your call to service for me. You've already completely dismissed anything I have to say, so it should be easy for you to see how I drew that conclusion from your response.

Snooper said...

Yep. There IT is again. Can't stay on topic. So sad to be a troll. The attention span is the same as the circumference of a gnat's ass.

Jim said...

Well, snooper, at least I have the intelligence to know all conservatives are not as rude as you.

Snooper said...

Let's see. The topic is, once again, that the Lame Stream Media hails Gorezilla as a hero for lying about the Global Warming Myth and completely ignore a Hero of These United States.

Interesting.

Snooper said...

LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!

LMAOAY!!

You are by NO stretch of the imagination a conservative.

I have been doing this for a VERY long time and know the tell-tale signs of a Leftinistra hack moron troll. You fit the genre.

Nice try at spin, spunky.

Me? Rude? You ain't seen NUTHIN' yet.

Jim said...

Yes..snooper...oh lord of the blogs...you are right...I have...no original thought...or opinion....on the post...or the...context of the...post...I agree...completely...and nod my....head in agreement.

Is that to your satisfaction?

Jim said...

I'm not sure I ever claimed to be a "conservative" as you practice it. But I'm not a liberal either.

You "say" I'm a liberal because I might just see something a little different than you.

Watch out snooper, you are almost off topic yourself...

Snooper said...

AGAIN? With the distraction from the topic at hand? You DO know what the topic is, don't you?

LO!! This is too easy.

Are you knew to the blogosphere or is SadlyIgnorant coaching you?

snooper meet snooper...

Snooper said...

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

poor twoll

cannot stay on topic

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

LOL!!

Snooper said...

Thanks for the confirmation.

Lew Waters said...

Even typing slow to help him get it, he doesn't.

Like Hannity often says, it is hilarious to watch liberals deny they are liberals.

Funnier still, we are to believe they are free thinkers and speak according to their own senses, but everyone repeats almost verbatim what you will find at all the liberal troll feeding stations.

And still, jimmie boy cannot see that my post is about liberal bias of ignoring real heroes and elevating pond scum like Algore.

He claims to agree about the bias and it being wrong, at least in this case, but doesn't take the media to task. Instead he complains that we conservatives do.

But, he's not a liberal. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

Snooper said...

So, Lew, we have determined that your troll is merely just another troll. IT cannot stay on topic. When askedd if IT knows what the topic is, IT has an emotional tizzy fit and repeats what someone else said.

Do I have that right?

I guess that would make it, troll trounced?

Lew Waters said...

Snooper, I'm familiar with this particular troll from Victoria Tafts Blog site. It doesn't give up easily and will soon return with something else completely irrelevant to the topic.

Even when trounced, a liberal thinks they still have the upperhand.

What a pitiful existence they lead.

Jim said...

Glad you "welcome opposing views."

Couldn't be further from the truth.

Since I don't spend all my waking hours online posting comments in blog, I'm not good "warriors" like you (spooky).

It's attitudes like yours that makes me less and less surprised everyday that Democrats are becoming more popular.

But whatever, I'm "off topic." I guess that makes you the winner? Or whatever it is you are doing here, because having a conversation it isn't.

Snooper said...

ROFLMAOAY!!

Dems MORE popular??????????

How totally retarded!

Haven't you heard? Even the far left fringe moonbats of the fruit loop brigades HATE the democrats.

Where ya been, troll?

LOL!!!

Thanks for the chuckle.

Snooper said...

Twolls are so emotional

Snooper said...

crickets

Lew Waters said...

Yes, crickets. But note, IT came back in one last time with just what I predicted, something totally irrelevant, again.

Oh yes, and with the usualy liberal whining.

Trolls! Its whats for lunch, LOL.

Snooper said...

Trolls for lunch?

GAWD!

Snooper said...

One of these days Lew, we will meet a worthy troll.

Jim said...

It was more like going to bed fellas.

If you can't seem to grasp that I was trying to point out, that both of you are making plenty of "off topic" posts and that's just fine and dandy. Dare I do it, and I'm a "troll."

Whatever, keep punching the keyboard fellas. Don't forget to stay on topic.

CyberPastor said...

"It's attitudes like yours that makes me less and less surprised everyday that Democrats are becoming more popular."

Let's see:

NASCAR -- Losing friends there.

Military -- yeah they love cowards who blast their General.

Vets -- We stormed the Hill and told them what we think and ask Webb and his ammendment what happened after we showed up.

And they don't even like each other when you listen to the Presidential candidates!

Thanks for the great insight!

Jim said...

cyberpastor,

If you don't want me off topic, it's best not to respond.

In regards to the original post, I did today find a link to a video on CNN, one of those assumed liberal MSM outlets, that had a complete video on the ceremony for Gen. Pace at the Vietnam Memorial. I applaud them for posting such a video, something it seems doesn't happen as claimed in the original post.
