Church Of England Puts Faith In Al Gore

Church Commissioners for the Church of England have confidently placed their investment faith in the all knowing, almighty, AlGore. His excellency the Goracle's, Generation Investment Management firm is the recipient of the church's largesse to the tune of £150 million. The Commissioners view the outlay of cash and Treasury Bills as an investment in what First Church Estates Commissioner, Andreas Whittam Smith describes as an environmentally sustainable global equities mandate. Mr. Gore's boutique management firm invests in companies that follow a socially responsible business model.

I wonder how many carbon credits the £150 million will buy them? This outlay of cash and Treasuries should make their horseships feel good about their sinful and wayward conspicous consumption. Why, it's the modern day equivilent of buying Indulgences!
Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha!
In a related development across the pond, Environmental Minister and U.K. Member of Parliment Sammy Wilson says that anthroprogenic global warming is a hoax. The M.P. from East Antrim says the billions spent trying to fight a phantom menace like global warming could be better used fighting real problems like poverty and famine.
I think in 20 years’ time we will look back at this whole climate change debate and ask ourselves how on earth were we ever conned into spending the billions of pounds which are going into this without any kind of rigorous examination of the background, the science, the implications of it all. Because there is now a degree of hysteria about it, fairly unformed hysteria I’ve got to say as well.
I mean I get it in the Assembly all the time and most of the people who shout about climate change have not read one article about climate change, not read one book about climate change, if you asked them to explain how they believe there’s a connection between CO2 emission and the effects which they claim there’s going to be, if you ask them to explain the thought process or the modelling that is required and the assumptions behind that and how tenuous all the connections are, they wouldn’t have a clue.
Buy this man a Guinness! Two rounds I say! I'm glad to see our cousins in the British Isles wise up to the Global Warming Hoax. If the Goracle and his familiars really want to do something constructive to stop the spread of harmful cO2 emissions, they can start by shuting their pie holes.

With more green investments Mr. Gore may be able to get another houseboat like this one which he named "Bio-Solar One". The boat located at Center Hill Lake is equipped with solar panels and can use ethanol fuel. Too bad the Marina doesn't sell ethanol fuel and Mr. Gore has no idea where he can buy it at the lake. So much for B.S. One.

Israel Hits Hamas Gaza HQ

While pressing the French to sponsor a "humanitarian truce" of 48 hours to allow for the free flow of such "humanitarian" necessities as baby bottles, aspirin, band aids, guitar picks and Katyushas the first item on Hamas' busy schedule today was to have its headquarters blown up by the IAF. Israel rejected the French proposal saying that it lacked any mechanism to stop the flow of rockets into the Gaza strip. Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said, It is not realistic to expect Israel to cease fire unilaterally with no mechanism to enforce the cessation of shooting and terror from Hamas.

While Israel has been careful to target Hamas military and communications infrastructure, Hamas has been intent on targeting Israeli civilians and places such as homes, apartments, restaurants, schools and hospitals. What further proof does the world need of Hamas' goal to destroy the entire Jewish race? All of the protesters who have demonstrated in behalf of Hamas against Israeli "aggression" while saying nothing, not one peep, about the 10,500 rockets that have routinely been fired at southern Israel by the murderous thugs gathered in Gaza are contemptible lower-than-dirt fools.

Israeli Air Force destroys tunnels, launch sites and weapons depot

Video from newly established IDF YouTube channel shows the IAF neutralizing Hamas targets.

Palestinian Girl Places Cause Of War Where It Belongs; With Hamas

Five of this young girl's sisters died when Hamas set up a base of operations in a mosque located next to the girl's home. When the Hamas base was destroyed by the IDF the girls home was obliterated and her family decimated. This tragedy never would have occured had Hamas not begun firing into Israel while using civilian and religious structures as shields.

Joe The Plummer Snooper Resigns Ohio Post

Michelle Malkin reports that Ohio government snooper Helen Jones-Kelley resigned her post after two of her fellow travelers, Doug Thompson, the deputy director of child support and Fred Williams, assistant agency director who also resigned over the flap caused by their unauthorized investigation of Joe Wurzelbacher's (Joe the Plummer's) tax records and potential child-support payment. The digging into Wurzelbacher's records began shortly after his taped impromptu interview with then candidate Barack Obama went viral and threated to upset the One's road to the White House.

You can follow the updates here and here.

Ed Morrissey writes more on Jones-Kelley's actions inspired by devotion for the One.

What did Jones-Kelley do? She tipped off Team Obama to potential donors for an Obama fundraiser at a Dayton school, and used her work e-mail to do it. She identified at least one other public official as a potential invitee, who did get an invitation and attended with the requisite $2,500 donation.

The revelation of partisan electoral activities by Jones-Kelley adds to the skepticism over her actions in investigating Wurzelbacher. Jones-Kelley had already abused her position to raise funds for Obama, and so her transition to trampling Wurzelbacher’s civil rights in order to help smear him after the presidential debate seems more consistent in that context.

Brrrrh - Global Warming Drops Record Snow and Sleet On Las Vegas

That darn global warming! -- You try carbon crediting it out, you try AlGore inspired bloviating it out, you try empty-headed Hollywood celebrity whining it out and you still get....Global Warming 'Round the Corner! -- Global Warming 'Round the Corner!

Las Vegas is getting pummeled by record amounts of snow and sleet dropping inches of the white stuff onto the desert gaming resort. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the latest storm is bringing three to six inches of of snow to the valley floors and up to 10 inches to the foothills above 2500 feet.

The sudden spate of wintry weather is closing highways in the Southern regions of the Silver state. Officials at Vegas' McCarran International Airport say they have no snow removal equipment to remove the wintry precipitation from aircraft trying to leave the city for sunnier climes, so travelers have a one-way ticket into the palm tree paradise in the Nevada desert.

The Review-Journal cites Transportation Department Spokesman Bob McKenzie's admonition to motorists to stay in Las Vegas for the duration of the storm if possible.

What happens in Vegas is definitely staying in Vegas for awhile.
