On the surface this is not good news. It is being reported, albeit by MSNBC, but by other MSM outlets as well, that Al Gore, the most dishonest scam artist this side of George Soros and Hussein Obama, spent an hour and a half trying to convince President-elect Trump to buy into his climate hoax. Worse yet, Trump’s daughter Ivanka supposedly has a desire to make imposing this garbage on the people of America and the world “one of her signature issues in the next four years.” The fact that he was making a sales call does not necessarily mean we are standing up to our knees in dark green doo-doo, but that is a long time to spend on something that is so clearly a scam.
While there’s no denying Gore was in the building and there were folks tracking how much time he spent upstairs, he may not have been as convincing as he thinks he was in peddling his load of crap. According to the reporter, Gore wants to make the argument that going green is good for business.
By good for business, they mean subsidized income at the expense of the American people. It’s good for some well-connected and positioned businesses, bad for business in general, and really bad for America. If he’s trying to make that case to Donald Trump, it’s not going to fly. Trump is also on the record as pledging his commitment to revitalizing coal and natural gas as well as opening up drilling and fracking, making America prosperous. That’s not going to happen with windmills and solar panels.
Wind and solar are not dependable energy sources and they are very expensive. Trump is not an idiot or some climate toad’s patsy and he’s not willing to throw America into more economic distress of the type his predecessor so irresponsibly burdened us with for the better part of a decade. Obama threw the dice, imposed senseless restrictions and crippling mandates, trusting that innovation would bail him and perhaps us out in time. If it didn’t, it’s the price we paid for “saving the planet” and making his cronies a ton on those taxpayer subsidized businesses.
Gore may be trying to sell Mr. Trump on the carbon trading, get rich side of “climate change,” a primary reason all of the hucksters like him are involved. Gore could give a crap about the planet other than the parts where he has his energy-wasting mansions, parks his plane, docks his boat and stores his money. Obama was an initial member of the Chicago Climate Exchange so he and Gore have similar interests that they want to continue capitalizing on under the next administration.
It’s a tough deal in this day and time, having to rely upon the word of your president that he’s not going to take the short and easy path to incredible wealth at our expense when corruption is everywhere around him, but we’ve got to trust him until we’re given a reason not to. We have to believe that not only is he above betraying his country and countrymen, he’s also smart enough to recognize when he’s being targeted by bad people and able to play them in return.
Still, anyone who has researched or studied any of the science and the history of the climate fraud, the manipulation of both data and people that is pervasive throughout and the special deals that are granted to those providing assistance to its imposition, know what a criminal scam it is. They also know there is nobody dirtier in the climate hoax game than Hussein Obama and Al Gore. Why on earth would Trump meet with him or allow his daughter to do so and be befouled on his behalf. Gore should have been unceremoniously tossed out by the collar and belt, airborne, onto the sidewalk in front of Trump Tower.
There have been a few things, from possibly not prosecuting Hillary Clinton to a potential Mitt Romney Secretary of State and other instances that have been tough on Trump loyalists who believe we know the man, have faith in who he is, and are determined trust him to do the right thing. We have to believe that there is more to it than we know right now and that it will all make perfect sense once he’s in office.
It’s not easy after Obama, the Bushes and Clinton but it’s not like we’ve got any other options at this point. He’s the last hope for this nation and for us. We have to trust our own judgment in supporting Mr. Trump and his judgment and character to be doing the right thing. We’ll find out after January 20th.

What happened in the meeting? Nobody knows for sure – but in the wake of a one hour meeting between Al Gore and Donald Trump, Gore has promised an “unprecedented” surge in climate activism, to protect a renewable energy revolution which he also claims will “happen anyway”.
Al Gore: climate change threat leaves ‘no time to despair’ over Trump victory
Former vice-president expects backlash from environmentalists against Trump and hopes Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will join fight.
The urgent threat of climate change means there is “no time to despair” over the election of Donald Trump, according to former vice-president Al Gore, who hopes that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will join an escalated climate campaign against the president-elect.
Gore told the Guardian he remained hopeful Trump would reverse some of his positions on climate change but predicted an unprecedented backlash from environmentalists over the next four years.
Trump, who has called climate change a hoax, has pledged to withdraw the US from the Paris climate accord, dismantle the Clean Power Plan, slash renewable energy funding and somehow prop up the ailing US coal industry.
His advisers have also advocated cutting climate research at Nasa and completely exiting the international climate effort.
Gore said such threats mean there will “likely be a huge upsurge in climate activism. I’m encouraged that there are groups that are digging in to work even harder. Those groups working in the courts are even more important now; those organizing on campuses are even more important now.
“My message would be that despair is just another form of denial. There is no time to despair. We don’t have time to lick our wounds, to hope for a different election outcome.
“We have to win this struggle and we will win it; the only question is how fast we win. But more damaged is baked into the climate system every day, so it’s a race against time.”
On Monday, Gore spent around an hour meeting with Trump and his daughter Ivanka, who reportedly plans to speak out on climate change despite her father’s skepticism of the issue.
“I had a lengthy and very productive session with the president-elect,” Gore said, after emerging from the meeting at Trump Tower in New York City.
“It was a sincere search for areas of common ground. I had a meeting beforehand with Ivanka Trump. The bulk of the time was with the president-elect, Donald Trump. I found it an extremely interesting conversation, and to be continued, and I’m just going to leave it at that.”
“Regardless of what he does, a sustainable energy revolution is under way.”

My guess is Trump wants to find a way to defuse climate opposition, but I don’t think there is any room to manoeuvre. Any serious concessions to the climate movement would be treated by many of Trump’s supporters as a sell-out. The entrenched positions are simply too polarized.
You don’t “drain the swamp” by hiring swamp critters.
The assertions of the “inevitability” of the renewable energy revolution juxtaposed with promises of “unprecedented” climate action are noteworthy. If the green revolution is so “inevitable”, why the need for a hysterical activist response should the Trump administration cut federal support?
