Al Gore on Townhall

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown - Sat Oct 15

The year was 1999 and the anarchists descended on Seattle. They were called a peaceful group of human rights leaders, students, environmental groups, etc., wanting fairer trade with less exploitation. Sounds like the group down on Wall Street. Prepare for violence. We remember this crowd. ... more

Ever since Al Gore won the popular vote but lost the 2000 presidential election, there has been a major push to abandon the Electoral College system. Superficially, there is a sense that the election was unfair and everyone’s vote did not count equally. ... more

Recently, scientists at the CERN labratory stumbled upon something so simply remarkable that they had to test, double check, and retest themselves. When they realized it was happening, they opened up their findings to the world: You can go faster than the speed of light. ... more

Paul Driessen - Mon Sep 26

Delaware’s political establishment thinks First State electricity consumers should subsidize the manufacturing of super-sized fuel cells, under the auspices of California-based Bloom Energy, to replace natural gas and coal-fired power plants in generating electricity. ... more

The Popular Press is swooning over what they consider to be the new-found potency in President Barack Obama's demands that the Congress pass his Jobs Bill. ... more

Phyllis Schlafly - Wed Sep 21

We are now beginning to grasp the definition and the scope of the words "new world order," an expression inserted into the U.S. political vocabulary by the first President Bush. He never defined it, leaving that task to his successors, and President Barack Obama is only too glad to expand its meaning. ... more

Victor Davis Hanson - Thu Sep 15

Suddenly, liberal op-ed writers are trashing -- even lampooning -- Barack Obama as a one-term president ("one and done"). Centrist Democrats up for re-election in 2012 openly worry about inviting a kindred president into their districts, lest the supposed new pariah lose them votes. ... more

It’s been a rough season for Nobel Peace Prize winners. ... more

The modern day faith in Science makes the most fanatical fundamentalist look indifferent by comparison. ... more

This week marks the debut of former Vice-President Dick Cheney’s memoir entitled In My Time. Cheney has helped pump up interest in his volume, promising that it will stir up a hornet’s nest in Washington and among the chattering classes, at large. Some commentators, most of whom have not yet read the tome, are accusing Cheney of settling old scores and answering his critics, instead of offering a substantive contribution to the historical literature of the Bush Presidency. ... more

Victor Davis Hanson - Thu Sep 1

What should we not expect during next summer's presidential campaign, given what was put off-limits in 2008 and later? ... more

John Ransom - Mon Aug 29

The decision to approve the pipeline now rests on the desk of the president, who likely doesn’t relish approving the pet project of then-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Expect him to use every day of the 90-day waiting period. ... more

Paul Driessen - Tue Aug 23

Put these guys on Comedy Central. Put ‘em in an asylum … a mandatory restitution program … jail perhaps … or a witness protection program, if they turn state’s evidence on other perpetrators. But keep them away from our money – and our energy, economic, healthcare and education policies. ... more

On August 4, Gore was speaking at the Aspen Institute FOCAS seminar in Colorado. The minute plus clip is the most interesting part of an hour-and-half long snooze fest—though he does perk it up when he talks about how climate change has fallen from the front burner of the public psyche. He uses several different fecal terms to describe the various valid theories regarding climate change. ... more

Like Douglas Adams' description of space, the economic issues in this country have become quite big. In fact, most people are, in a very real way, unable to comprehend how "vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big" our problems have become. ... more

Michael Medved - Wed Jul 13

Sarah Palin doesn’t deserve the ridicule she receives from the mainstream media, nor does she merit the adulation she inspires from her legions of fans. The over-reaction on each side feeds the super-heated response on the other. ... more

David Harsanyi - Wed Jun 29

For years, the Sierra Club and other environmentalist groups have warned us that too many babies will destroy the Earth. ... more

John Hawkins - Tue Jun 28

The American story has never been about things coming easy. It has been about rising to the moment when the moment is hard. About rejecting panicked division for purposeful unity. About seeing a mountaintop from the deepest valley. That is why we remember that some of the most famous words ever spoken by an American came from a president who took office in a time of turmoil: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” ... more
