In his heady Hollywood days, Al Gore in his own words "used to be the next President of the United States of America."
But meteorologist Jennifer Lopez was only a bit off when she explained how at the Weather Channel "we like to refer to him as former President-elect Al Gore," according to a post at FreeRepublic.com.
How else to explain the bipartisan proposal that would now make Global Warming a National Security Issue?
Sponsors, who boast they expect to pass Congress with wide support, are calling for the director of national intelligence to conduct the first-ever "national intelligence estimate" on Global Warming.
"The effort would include pinpointing the regions at highest risk of humanitarian suffering and assessing the likelihood of wars erupting over diminishing water and other resources." (Boston Globe, April 9, 2007).
Has anyone noticed that the same people who control water reservoirs, the same ones who predicted that plain H20 soon would have to be transported by armed guards, are now in the driver's seat?
The crapshoot of international politics is revolutionizing the world as we know it, and none dare call it a conspiracy.
Not only does Gore wield more power over the American people out of office than he ever did when in, thanks to him and his global Pooh-Bahs, the United Nations and its undying bid for One World Government, just reached the top rung of the success ladder.
No one seems to be stepping forward to give the ladder a firm shake.
In an era where American troops are still in harm's way, this latest measure also would order the Pentagon to undertake a series of war games to determine how global climate change could effect US security, including "direct physical threats to the United States posed by extreme weather events such as hurricanes".
Hurricanes have a way of blowing the specter of international terrorism off the map.
Nor can the rest of the world simply dismiss the ambitious Gore out of hand. His new powers far exceed that which comes from being President-elect of the United States of America.
The mantle of his power, having been bestowed upon him by quintessential UN Poster Boy, Kyoto architect Maurice Strong, puts him in the face of nations worldwide.
But the sea change with the tsunami effect starts in Washington, D.C.
Sponsored by Senator Chuck Hagel--a Republican Nebraska senator--and Senator Richard J. Durbin, the Illinois Democrat, the bill to make Global Warming a national security issue arrives in an era when other international bodies are taking steps to designate global warming as a high international priority.
First the new religion of the 21st century, then the moral issue of our times, Global Warming is now eclipsing international terrorism by making that subject politically incorrect.
Look what the former President-elect has already achieved to date.
The House Armed Services Committee is booting the 'global war on terror' from the 2008 defense budget.
Democrats want to drop the word "terrorism" from the lexicon of the day. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi proved on her jaunt to the Middle East that the United States of America tolerates a shadow government with an extra Foreign Policy direction not on the books.
Would-be terrorists have porous borders over which to gain access to the Land of the Free, Home of the Brave.
Before investigation of any kind can get underway, authorities automatically rule out terrorism at the scenes of murder and mayhem.
It took a mere five and a half years for the events of September 11, 2001 to be forgotten. During those five and a half years, loud voices have been shouting that 9/11 was an inside job.
"Don't fear the terrorists. They're mothers and fathers," says Rosie O'Donnell on national television.
Al Gore and Maurice Strong have made Global Warming the new terrorism.
Osama bin Laden, getting by in a cave somewhere in nether regions of Afghanistan-Pakistan will be bypassed, unless he can be caught polluting the environment.
Meanwhile, when Pogo the Possum uttered the classic words: "We have met the enemy and he is us", he must have had Al Gore and Maurice Strong in mind.
