A response to the Huffington Report story (The Presidency of Al Gore, 2001-2009)

by George Dienhart

The story is here. My timeline is the same as the original author. I think this way more probable than the outcome written by Norman MacAfee.

On January 20, 2001, Al Gore, the candidate who won the most votes, becomes the 43rd president of the United States. A constitutional crisis develops as the electoral college is ignored. Years later, historians refer to this event as the American coup of 2001.
Al Gore continues the same policies as the Clinton administration. The 9/11 events still occur as they did in our timeline.

Shortly after 9/11, Al Gore refuses to send Special Forces into Afghanistan to support the Northern Alliance. He states in an interview that he will not violate another nation’s sovereignty. Terrorists pour into Afghan training camps. A follow up to 9/11 is planned by Al Qaeda. Eventually Gore authorizes (CG-48) U.S.S. Yorktown to fire a cruise missile at Bin Laden’s last known location. The missile hit’s it’s target, but the Gore administration is embarrassed as Bin Laden is seen later that day in Damascus attending a conference for Palestinian Independence. Bin Laden is the keynote speaker and appologizes fo not paying enough attention to the “plight of his Muslim brothers”. During the speech, suicide bombers simultaneously attack 25 separate targets in Israel, killing over 600 people.

Republicans are squawking that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein is a threat to the safety of the country, that he has weapons of mass destruction. Gore asks the United Nations to send its weapons inspectors back into Iraq, and after six months of searching, they find none. 3 months after the inspectors leave, Iraq gasses 20,000 Kurds with the nerve agent sarin.

In 1998, as vice president, Gore proposed a NASA satellite, Triana, to provide, from a distance of 930,000 miles, a continuous view of the sunlit side of the earth. Triana would measure global warming by measuring how much sunlight is reflected and emitted from the earth and would monitor weather systems. Triana is built and launched in February 2003. In late 2004 it has no effect on the a massive Tsunami that wreaks havoc on a large swath of the Indian Ocean. Triana watches helplessly from orbit, as it is not designed to track Tsunami’s.

The president's favorite book, Stendahl's The Red and the Black, proves to be a huge embarrassment to the President as the average American associates the book's young hero as speaking about Gore when he states: "So there, this is what these rich people are like. First they humiliate you, then they think they can make it up to you by monkey business!"

Recognizing that nothing good can come from the continuing Israeli-Palestinian standoff, Gore sends Holbrooke and Vice President Joe Lieberman to broker a peace. Both men are killed in a Palestinian missile attack on their motorcade. Hillary Clinton is named Vice- President.

As vice president, Gore signed the Kyoto Accord on Climate Change in 1998, but there were not enough votes to ratify it in the Congress, and there still are not. President Gore, however, is able to implement most elements of the treaty by executive order. He begins a process of education about global warming and publishes a book on the subject. Businesses are forced to turn green, and massive lay offs occur. By the time the Kyoto Accords are fully enacted, unemployment stands at 16%. The economy slips deeper into recession. When taxes are raised yet again, some economists start to use the term depression with alarming frequency. Years later, it is noted that Global Warming was a myth, and the Great Millennial Depression started with the Kyoto.

In 2005, Katrina hits. As most of the response is at the state and local levels, the response is a disaster. Due to the ongoing depression, an additional 25,000 homeless families perish in Katrina.

No one is quoting Al Gore’s philosophers on Nov 11 2005, when Dhiren Barot succeeds in destroying the New York Stock Exchange, Chase Bank and Citicorp in New York, The Chicago Board of Trade in Chicago, and the Eurex in Frankfort. The Millennial Depression is now global.
Russia invades Georgia, claiming that they are harboiing Chechen terrorists. NATO and the United States do nothing.

Hugo Chavez invades Brazil war wages on for 10 years before Brazil regains it’s independence.
Gore enacts National Healthcare. Tens of thousands of doctors are forced out of business. Lines are long at “National Clinics” when the great flu epidemic of 2006 hits. 30,000 children and infants are dead because they died before the National Healthcare clinics could schedule an appointment.

The president invites to the White House the person who had the most influence on him, his high school art teacher. The same day Congressman Dennis Hastert file articles of Impeachment, accusing Gore of profiting illegally on a Carbon Credits scheme.

Over 20% of the United Staes now lives in poverty

The undamming of rivers, begun seriously under Clinton/Gore, continues. Energy shortages plague the areas that are no longer receiving hydro-electric power.

George Bush announces he will run for president in 2008- a nation rejoices.

Fire up the liberal hysteria...

by George Dienhart

Nothing gets liberals more worked up than the truth- especially during an election year. Today the president made a statement. One sentence that the left will be crying about throughout the election cycle.

He stated that electing a Democrat president might "eventually lead to another attack on the United States."

Exactly what part of this is untrue? Both Democrats want to cut and run. Both Democrats want to return to battling terrorist through law enforcement agencies. As demonstrated in the Clinton years, law enforcement agencies are ill equipped to lead this battle.

The president delivered this dose of truth yesterday during an interview with the Politico and Yahoo.  Liberals usually use this as fodder for “Republicans win elections through fear” stories. The truth is, if this tactic is used, it only works because Democrats have painted themselves into a corner. They can’t run far enough to the left, and the extreme left wants out of the war at any cost. Obama is pandering to this crowd, and will pull us out of Iraq. This drawdown will be devastating not just to the Iraq, but also to the United States. 9/11 was bad enough, we don’t need an even bigger event to remind us why winning in Iraq is important.

Today's law enforcement shoutout goes to...

by George Dienhart

The Roswell Police. Today they raided a home that was making 30k a day selling HGH, testosterone, and a knock off of Cialis. Way to go Roswell….

This is funny...

Found this over at Obi’s Sis

A biker is riding by the zoo when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage.

Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents. The biker jumps off his bike, runs to the cage, and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.

An Atlanta Journal-Constitution (local newspaper) reporter has seen the whole scene and, addressing the biker, says, ‘Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I saw a man do in my whole life.’

‘Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right.’

‘Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist from the AJC, you know, and tomorrow’s paper will have this on the first page. What motorcycle do you ride and what political affiliation do you have?’

“I ride a Harley Davidson and I am a Republican”

The journalist leaves.

The following morning the biker buys a copy of the AJC to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads on the first page:


Thanks for the laugh. Head on over for some more insights…


Look at who's ahead in the popular vote...

by George Dienhart

Popular Vote (w/FL & MI)










Clinton +3,939



Real Clear Politics has Hillary ahead in the popular vote. This is part of a dual strategy to convince delegates that she’s their gal. The other half of the strategy is reminding people that Obama has not been able to win in the states that Democrats absolutely have to win in order to win the presidency. To wit:











Clinton +421,522


New York










Clinton +317,477












Clinton +214,115


These states have provided large margins of victory for Hillary, and the super delegates must address this. If McCain takes 2 out of the three, he is almost guaranteed victory in November.

Someone is finally paying attention..

by George Dienhart

From the Wall Street Journal:

Wall Street Journal A1: "Recession? Not So Fast, Say Some: Despite Pain, Economists Begin Dialing Back Dire Forecasts": "[T]hough two main pillars of the economy, the labor market and consumer spending, have faltered, they have not collapsed as they did in past recessions. ... Job losses, meanwhile, have been less severe than they usually are in recessions. And many economists think the government's earliest estimate of first-quarter GDP growth - 0.6 percent - will be revised upward."

Repeat after me- there is no recession…


Cherie Blair

I had to share this quote from Cherie Blair on the Clinton/ Lewinski scandal:

CHERIE BLAIR MEMOIRS " Bill was so bloody stupid - but Chelsea Clinton kept her parents together": "I did, however, discuss it with Hillary. In her view, the way the right wing relentlessly pursued it was all part of a wider attempt by their enemies to discredit Bill. The most important aspect, she said, was not to let it undermine the presidency. So on a political, strategic level that was the line they took - that this had been politically motivated and stirred up by those who wanted to undermine the Democratic presidency. On a personal level, however, there is no doubt that she was furious and hurt - and rightly."

So, we evidently have Cherie Blair to thank for Hillary’s “Stand by your man” approach to adultery.  As least, she recognized that “Bill was so bloody stupid”.

ABC News outs Obama

by George Dienhart

Interesting, this is got to be the first time Big Media has stopped fluffing Obama (I’m referring to his pillow). In the interview, Obama not only showed he hasn’t a clue about what’s going on in Iraq and Afghanistan, he also showed a visible loss of poise. Loss of poise is potentially disastrous for a candidate who has been running a “style over substance” campaign. From ABCNews.com:

"Obama posited - incorrectly - that Arabic translators deployed in Iraq are needed in Afghanistan - forgetting, momentarily, that Afghans don't speak Arabic. ... No sooner did Obama realize his mistake - and correct himself - but he immediately made another. 'We need agricultural specialists in Afghanistan, people who can help them develop other crops than heroin poppies, because the drug trade in Afghanistan is what is driving and financing these terrorist networks ... ,' he said. ... 'But if we are sending them to Baghdad, they're not in Afghanistan,' Obama said. ... In Iraq, oil fields not poppy fields are a major source of U.S. technical assistance."

Well, it’s no wonder he want’s to cut and run- he clearly doesn’t understand what’s going on in Iraq (or Afghanistan). This is just one more example of “style over substance”. His campaign communicates nothing but marketing sound bites, and the candidate stumbles badly when forced to comment on actual foreign policy issues.

It's clobbering time...

by George Dienhart

Here are the numbers from last nights West Virginia Democratic primary (via AP):

1,883 of 1,894 precincts - 99 percent
Hillary Clinton   236,982 - 67 percent
Barack Obama   91,017 - 26 percent
John Edwards    25,851 - 07 percent

Again, I hate to point this out to the radical left, but doesn’t this concern you? The candidate you selected not only can’t win primaries- he’s getting slaughtered. Maybe it’s time to reevaluate?

Everyone loves Grover

by George Dienhart

Grover Norquist has what might be the best title ever for a book: Leave Us Alone: Getting the Government's Hands Off Our Money, Our Guns, Our Lives. The title alone is a philosophy for the government to live by- can’t wait to read it.


Quote of the Day

by George Dienhart

Mike Huckabee commented (on MSNBC) about the damaged republican “brand”

"People ultimately don't buy the brand - they buy the cereal. ... So what we've got to be able to do is to show that there are individuals out there that are worth supporting and worth electing. But they can't go out there and ride the elephant down Main Street."

He’s right- I prefer post Raison Bran- but I also buy whatever brand is on sale. Wait- that’s a bad metaphor…

President Bush sums up his legacy in one sentence.

by George Dienhart

Yahoo and the Politico held a joint online interview of President Bush. In the interview, he was asked about his low poll numbers. He answered, "Popularity is fleeting, principles are forever. This perfectly sums up Bush’s legacy as a man who was willing to make the hard decisions regardless of political fallout. He has made the choice that is right for the future of this nation, without regard to his legacy. This makes him the anti-Clinton. It seemed as though all of President Clinton’s decisions were based on polls and the Clinton’s perception of what the decision would do to hi legacy. This led the nation down a rough road. His decision to cut and run in Somalia and his reluctance to deal with bin Laden when given the opportunity are examples of Clinton putting his legacy ahead of the nations future. He put a ‘times are good” mentality ahead of making foreign policy decisions that may have proved unpopular to his constituents. Another example would be the war in Kosovo. His refusal to commit ground troops had a cost of thousands of lives.

In contrast, President Bush has confronted our enemies, knowing that it would cost him popularity. The difference between the two men obviously extends past what goes on in the oval office when they are in the company of interns…


Good Morning (part 2)

by George Dienhart

Good morning, to Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.). He was who was NRCC chairman from 1998 to 2002. Are you measuring Tom Cole’s NRCC office for drapes yet?

Good Morning

by George Dienhart

Good morning to Oklahoma Rep. Tom Cole, who heads up the House Republican campaign committee. Just curious, are you done destroying the Republican Party yet? Another disaster in what was once considered a safe Republican seat has me thinking that you should consider a new career- perhaps in the demolition industry.
