Al Gore Chooses “LIKE MINDED” islamic terrorists To Buy His Cable Company

January 3, 2013 Leave a comment

TWG: Folks, if there was any question as to the allegiance of hypocritical, lying snake oil salesman al gore, let it be put to rest.   Glenn Beck wanted to bid on this cable station owned by gore and was refused the opportunity to even place a bid.  Gore said he wanted it to go to like-minded people, so he sold it to ISLAMIC JIHADISTS!  This is a previous VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, people!  Close pal of the clintons and other high profile politicians and a board member of APPLE. (Another reason I refuse to buy Apple products.)

 

Report: Glenn Beck tried to buy Current TV, Al Gore went with Al-Jazeera

 

Al-Jazeera wasn’t the only media company with its sights set on former Vice President Al Gore’s little-watched Current TV.

Glenn Beck’s Blaze Media approached the struggling cable news network last year, the Wall Street Journal reports, but was rebuffed because “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view.”

Instead, Gore went with the Emir of Qatar-funded Arab news channel Al-Jazeera.

Al-Jazeera has been criticized for having a pro-Islamist bent, and accused of working with members of Al Qaeda. One of its journalists was arrested in Israel in 2011 on suspicion of being an agent of the Palestinian group Hamas. Dave Marash, a former “Nightline” reporter who worked for Al-Jazeera in Washington, said he left the network in 2008 in part because he sensed an anti-American bias there.

The network is subsidized by the ruling family of oil rich Qatar, which some critics have said smacks of hypocrisy, given Gore’s beliefs that global warming is due in large part to mankind’s reliance on fossil fuels.

Gore won the Oscar in 2006 for his documentary film about global warming, “An Inconvenient Truth.”

Gore netted $100 million with his 20 percent stake in Current TV when it was sold for a reported $500 million on Wednesday.

Al-Jazeera plans to euthanize the seven-year-old network and turn it into Al-Jazeera America by adding five to 10 new U.S. bureaus beyond the five it has now. More than half of its content will be U.S. news, and the network will have its headquarters in New York, according to a rep.

Emails to Glenn Beck’s rep were not immediately returned.

We know about Al Gore’s history of lies and deception, so let’s take a look at his business partner, Joel Hyatt, shall we?   The alliances of these two cretins speaks volumes.

Joel Hyatt

Joel Z. Hyatt (born Joel Hyatt Zylberberg, 1950) is a prominent businessman and former attorney and American politician of the Democratic party. He is the founder of Hyatt Legal Services, and was featured in the law firm’s television commercials speaking the slogan, “I’m Joel Hyatt and you have my word on it.”

Hyatt graduated from Dartmouth College and Yale Law School. He briefly practiced law as an associate at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison.

Hyatt co-founded Hyatt Legal Services in 1977 as a low-cost legal service and later founded Hyatt Legal Plans, which became the country’s largest provider of employer-sponsored group legal services. Hyatt Legal Plans was acquired by MetLife in 1997.

Hyatt was a founding member of the U.S. Senate Democratic Leadership Circle and was a member of that group from 1981 to 1986. He was the Democratic National Committee’s assistant treasurer from 1981 to 1983.

He is the son-in-law of former U.S. Sen. Howard Metzenbaum and in 1994, when Metzenbaum decided to retire from the Senate, Hyatt ran to replace him. Hyatt won the Democratic nomination, but lost to then Ohio Lt. Gov. R. Michael DeWine in the general election.

Hyatt was appointed to the California Public Utilities Commission in June 1999, by Governor Gray Davis. He served six months of a six-year term, resigning in December 1999.

Hyatt served as National Finance Chair for the Democratic party in 2000, and is a business partner of former U.S. Vice President Al Gore In 2004, Hyatt and Gore purchased Newsworld International, a cable news channel, programmed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, which aired news programming from around the world. On August 1, 2005, Gore and Hyatt relaunched the network as Current TV, a young adult-programmed news and information service which pioneered the concept of user generated content on cable TV.[1]

Hyatt taught entrepreneurship at Stanford University Graduate School of Business from 1998 to 2003. He is a member of the board of trustees of Morehouse College and of The Brookings Institution. Hyatt was elected to the board of directors of Hewlett-Packard Company in May 2007.

In 1990, Hyatt Legal Services paid a $157,000 judgment for illegally firing an attorney in their Philadelphia offices, Clarence B. Cain, because of his AIDS diagnosis.[2] This case became the basis for the 1993 Tom Hanks film Philadelphia.

New York Gun Grabbing Propagandists Working At Newspaper Will Publish ADDITIONAL Gun Owners Names, Addresses

December 29, 2012 17 comments

Sooooo,  the scarecrow wants to play fire?

Turnabout is fair play, No?

Here’s the gun grabbing psychos at NY Journal who are broadcasting addresses and maps showing law abiding gun owners.   These are the vermin treating law abiding gun owners worse than sexual predators.  I wonder if they care even a little bit that victims of domestic violence, rape, robberies and other law abiding citizens have been uprooted over their careless actions? Would these vermin care if a family were murdered because the criminals knew they didn’t have guns?   Would they give a damn, or do “The ends justify the means” in their beady little eyes.

To great criticism, the Journal News published an interactive map showing the names and addresses of the legal gun owners in Westchester and Rockland counties just before Christmas.Now the paper has announced it will next publish the names and addresses of permit-holders in Putnam County with an eye toward eventually politicizing the names and addresses of every gun owner in the state.

The Journal News has defended its controversial violation of the privacy of New York’s legal gun owners by claiming that since the records are open to the public to find in government archives, they should be allowed to publish all the names and addresses.

New York State Senator Greg Ball slammed the Journal News, saying that the paper is treating law-abiding citizens like “sex offenders.”…

Dick’s, Cheaper Than Dirt…… Bowing To Gun Grabbing Zealots

Gun rights advocates furious as Dick’s Sporting Goods suspends gun sales

Posted at 5:53 pm on December 18, 2012 by Twitchy Staff | View Comments

Well, if you’re wanting an AR or even a paintball or air soft gun that resembles one, don’t come to Dick’s. We no longer sell them

In the wake of last week’s Newtown massacre, national chain Dick’s Sporting Goods is pulling guns from its displays in stores near Newtown and suspending the sale of “modern sporting rifles” nationwide.

Dick’s Sporting Goods, one of largest sporting goods retailers in the world, is suspending sale of certain kinds of semi-automatic rifles.

Dick’s Sporting Goods has suspended sales of Modern Rifles in their stores, and guns altogether near Newtown, CT

Dick’s Sporting Goods is doing their part, removing rifles from their stores

Dick’s issued the following statement:

We are extremely saddened by the unspeakable tragedy that occurred last week in Newtown, CT, and our hearts go out to the victims and their families, and to the entire community.

Out of respect for the victims and their families, during this time of national mourning we have removed all guns from sale and from display in our store nearest to Newtown and suspended the sale of modern sporting rifles in all of our stores chainwide.

We continue to extend our deepest sympathies to those affected by this terrible tragedy.

Dick’s Sporting Goods for company of the month. They are no longer selling assault weapons. Ever. Anywhere.

Well, not exactly. As of now, the suspension is only temporary. Still, gun control advocates are lavishing praise on the company:

Dick’s sporting goods is pulling semi automatic weapons off the shelves. Temporarily. Hallelujah! Here’s to making it permanent.

Very proud of Dick’s Sporting Goods for removing the bushmaster assault rifle, the weapon used in the Newtown shooting, from their stores.

Way to go Dick’s for starting to pull semi automatic guns off the shelves

Thank you Ed Stack, CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods and an old friend, for suspending sales of modern rifles in your 500 stores.

Thank you Dick’s Sporting goods for supporting the Friday’s victims and making the right decision.

@gretawire Kudos to Dick’s Sporting Goods; this will be the start of a massive movement to eliminate automatic weapons from our society!

But many more are not nearly as pleased at the news.

It’s a bit discouraging to see all the negative reactions to Dick’s Sporting Goods deciding to pull their assault rifles.

In what should come as no surprise, proponents of gun rights are quite disgusted by what they see as capitulation to the anti-gun lobby:

@vindicator good lord– dick’s isn’t selling guns now?! It seems like there’s a bit of an anti-gun agenda being pushed by the gov…

What Dick’s Sporting Goods has done is precisely the kind of reactionary post-Newtown, CT response the Obama administration was hoping for.

And, from the looks of things, regardless of how long the suspension lasts, Dick’s will be losing a lot of customers:

Dick’s Sporting Goods just suspended the sale of semi automatic weapons. I won’t be shopping there anymore.

I will never step foot in another Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Online firearms retailer Cheaper Than Dirt has also suspended gun sales (though, interestingly, it is still selling gun accessories), and Walmart has pulled an online ad for a gun made by the same manufacturer as the gun used by Adam Lanza.

Fortunately, as of now, Walmart has no plans to halt gun sales. Let’s hope they continue to stand up for the Second Amendment.

Reaction to Newtown Shootings Spreads to Corporate America

By MICHAEL D. SHEAR and ADAM NAGOURNEY

The reaction to the Newtown shootings spread to corporate America and to California on Tuesday, as a private equity firm said it would immediately sell the company that made the assault-style rifle used in shootings, while California lawmakers announced an effort to regulate the sale of ammunition more tightly.

The legislation, being introduced by State Senator Kevin de León, a Democrat, would require anyone looking to buy ammunition for any kind of weapon to undergo a background check and obtain a one-year permit costing $50. The legislation would also ban the sale of ammunition in California by mail, requiring that all transactions be done in person.

Democrats said that given the party’s increasingly powerful control of the Legislature – where they now control two-thirds of the seats, in both the Assembly and Senate – they were confident that the legislation could pass swiftly and hoped it would set a model for other states around the country.

In announcing the sale of the gun manufacturer, the private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management made clear that the decision stemmed from the killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newton, Conn. “It is apparent that the Sandy Hook tragedy was a watershed event that has raised the national debate on gun control to an unprecedented level,” Cerberus said in a news release.

The firm said it planned to sell the Freedom Group, which makes the .223 Bushmaster rifle used in the massacre. Cerberus acquired Bushmaster in 2006, later merging it with other gun companies to create the Freedom Group.

Tuesday’s announcement follows a statement from the California State Teachers’ Retirement System, a large pension fund, that it was reviewing its investment in Cerberus in light of the firm’s holding in the Freedom Group.

Cerberus is one of several private equity firms that have holdings in gun manufacturers. Colt Defense, which was spun out of the maker of the .44-40 Colt revolver, is jointly owned by Sciens Capital Management, a fund advised by the Blackstone Group and another fund operated by Credit Suisse.

Separately, Dick’s Sporting Goods, a chain with more than 500 stores, said in a statement on its Web site that it was stopping all sales and displays of guns at its store closest to Newtown, and is temporarily ceasing sales of modern rifles nationwide.

A Dick’s spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment on Tuesday.

Walmart.com removed its information page on the Bushmaster .223, a semiautomatic model said to be used by the Newtown gunman, Adam Lanza. And Bass Pro Shop was not listing information about Bushmaster-brand guns on its Web site, though it had promoted the brand in a Black Friday special.

Walmart, the nation’s largest retailer, said it removed the information page on Bushmaster “in light of the tragic events.” However, it will continue to sell the Bushmaster and said it had made no changes to its sales policies on guns and ammunition.

A spokesman, David Tovar, said that the company remained “dedicated to the safe and responsible sale of firearms in areas of the country where they are sold,” and that the company “had not made any changes to the assortment of guns we sell in select stores.”

Recently, Walmart has been increasing its emphasis on gun sales, after a five-year period where it had backed away from them. In 2006, the company stopped selling guns in most of its United States stores, saying there was little customer demand for the items.

But in 2011, it reversed that decision, saying it wanted to appeal to hunting enthusiasts, and began selling guns at more than half of its stores.

Mr. Tovar noted that the company was a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, and as part of that, takes video recordings of gun sales, conducts background checks on employees selling guns, and takes other steps to help keep guns away from criminals.

Still, Jared Lee Loughner, who shot Gabrielle Giffords and other Arizona residents last year, bought ammunition for a Glock gun at a Walmart the morning of the shooting.

Around the country, gun-control advocates continued on Tuesday to seize on public grief and anger about Friday’s massacre of 20 young children to insist on quick, broad action by President Obama and Congress to regulate firearms, confront mental illness and address violence in the media and video games.

Residents of Newtown, where a young man killed 26 people at the elementary School, as well as his mother and himself, announced the formation of a new group called Newtown United, focused on turning the tragedy in their community into political pressure to confront the country’s gun culture.

“I would like, when you think of Sandy Hook, you think, ‘Oh, that’s where they banned assault weapons,’ ” John Neuhoff, a Newtown resident, told Reuters. “If we can ban fireworks, we should be able to ban assault weapons.”

Four days after the shootings, the gun-control debate is intensifying even as the residents of Newtown slowly carry on with the grim task of burying their loved ones. Funerals for the victims of the shooting are being held throughout the week, ahead of the Christmas holiday next Tuesday.

At the same time, some gun-rights advocates said that they would resist new limits on firearms and two of the nation’s Republican governors said the Connecticut shootings should not curtail the rights of their citizens to carry concealed weapons.

Gov. Rick Perry of Texas told a Tea Party group on Monday that he opposed “knee-jerk reaction from Washington, D.C.” in the wake of the shootings and said that schoolteachers and administrators should be allowed to carry concealed weapons, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Governor Bob McDonnell of Virginia, taking questions at WTOP, said he was cautious about any regulatory changes. “A lot of people are still stunned, like I am. Which is why I am not jumping to any policy changes,” he said. “The key is don’t overreact, don’t react when you’re emotional,” he said when asked about allowing school faculty to be armed.

“I know there has been a knee-jerk reaction against that,” he said. “But I think we should have a discussion about that. If someone had been armed, there would have been an opportunity to stop the person from coming into the school.” But he said he hoped there would not be a need for armed guards at schools.

In Ohio, Gov. John R. Kasich said he still intended to sign a bill allowing guns in the parking garages of the State Capitol building, saying in a statement to The Cleveland Plain Dealer that he is “a Second Amendment supporter and that’s not going change.”

“There are a range of issues at play here involving mental health, school security and a culture that at times fails to reject the glorification of violence that can desensitize us to the sanctity and majesty of life,” Mr. Kasich told the paper. “Going forward, we need to pay close attention to what the experts conclude from this incident in order to see if there are lessons to be learned and applied here in Ohio.”

The nation’s largest gun rights organization — the National Rifle Association — remained largely silent Tuesday even as some gun-right advocates began speaking up against new gun regulations.

“Automobiles kill more people on our streets than guns do,” Philip Van Cleave, the president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, said on CNN’s “Piers Morgan” show Monday night. “This was a maniac in a state that had a lot of gun control.”

Still, the events in Newtown appear to have energized gun-control advocates who view the somber aftermath of the tragedy as an opportunity — but only if change comes quickly, before the memory of the children and their teachers fades.

In California, aides to Mr. de León said that the idea behind his legislation was to try to slow the distribution of ammunition, given how many weapons are already in circulation.

Still, an earlier effort to restrict ammunition sales in the state ran into obstacles. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former Republican governor, signed a similar measure that would apply only to handguns, in effort to crack down on gangs. The National Rifle Association challenged the legislation in court, and a Superior Court judge ruled that the definition of handgun ammunition was unconstitutionally vague.

Mr. de León said that he was seeking to address those legal concerns by introducing legislation that would apply to all types of ammunition. “It continues to be easier in California to purchase handgun ammunition than it is a packet of cigarettes or allergy medicine,” the sponsors of the bill said in a memorandum released today.

Elsewhere, Elie Wiesel, a holocaust survivor and winner of the 1986 Nobel Peace Prize, wrote that the killings of the children in Connecticut should prompt America to confront its failures when it comes to accepting a culture of violence.

“If this tragedy does not produce universal gun control, what can and what will?” Mr. Wiesel wrote. “What else do we need for preventing further horrors such as this?”

On the White House Web site, a petition calling for the immediate introduction of gun-control legislation had gathered 173,000 signatures by Tuesday morning. The petition, which is on a page that lets people post petitions, calls for “a set of laws that regulates how a citizen obtains a gun.”

In Washington, another group is collecting signatures for a separate petition from people who will promise to call the White House and their member of Congress every month until new laws are passed. The Web site — gunpromise.com — went live Monday evening.

Late Monday night, David Letterman, the comedic host of CBS’s “Late Show” offered a rare, serious commentary, noting that there have been 70 school shootings since 1994. Mr. Letterman said he was encouraged by Mr. Obama’s speech at Sunday’s memorial that he is poised to take action.

“So right there, I feel better,” Mr. Letterman said. “It can’t be an ‘excuse for inaction.’ That means he’s committed. He is going on the record. Some kind of action.”

The calls for action follow Monday’s reversals by some Democratic lawmakers who have for years been opposed to stricter gun rules. But Mr. Obama and some lawmakers continue to be vague about what specific new laws or regulations they might support in the weeks and months ahead.

In a statement, Heidi Heitkamp, the Democratic senator-elect from North Dakota, said only that she would “give thoughtful and studied consideration” to any proposals for new laws about mental health and guns in the country.

“Many ideas will be put forth, and I will give thoughtful and studied consideration to any legislation that may arise as result of this tragedy,” Ms. Heitkamp said. “As always, I will listen closely to North Dakotans and seek their input on any possible changes to current law.”

Late Monday evening, David Axelrod, a senior adviser to Mr. Obama, e-mailed millions of people on the president’s campaign database, urging them to watch a video of the president’s speech at the memorial service Sunday.

“We must also, as the president urged, consider how each of us can play a part in making our country worthy of the memory of those little children,” Mr. Axelrod said.

But the e-mail, which links to a page at the president’s campaign Web site, does not offer any specifics for the president’s supporters. Mr. Axelrod remains as vague about the need for action as the president’s spokesman, Jay Carney, was on Monday.

Stephanie Clifford, Mark Scott, John H. Cushman Jr. contributed reporting.

Dick’s Sporting Goods Stores Suspend Sales Of Firearms

December 18, 2012 3 comments

And so it begins……..

Needless to say, Dicks Sporting Goods Stores will be added to the BOYCOTT list.

Shame on them.

 

For the foreseeable future, you can’t find “modern sporting rifles” on the Dick’s Sporting Goods website. The sporting goods chain has indefinitely suspended sales of firearms like the .223 Bushmaster on its web site and in its stores. It has also stopped showing and selling guns entirely at its store nearest Newtown, CT. The store also issued a statement.

“We are extremely saddened by the unspeakable tragedy that occurred last week in Newtown, CT, and our hearts go out to the victims and their families, and to the entire community.

Out of respect for the victims and their families, during this time of national mourning we have removed all guns from sale and from display in our store nearest to Newtown and suspended the sale of modern sporting rifles in all of our stores chainwide.

We continue to extend our deepest sympathies to those affected by this terrible tragedy.”

Other firearms and ammunition remain available at the store’s website and its other outlets.
