“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed – and hence clamorous to be led to safety – by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”- H. L. Mencken
Don’t you think, if a film contains so many errors, that some of its more basic assumptions should also be questioned?
I mean, if I told you to worship this amazing god on planet Xenu and that this was the greatest religion in the universe, and I told you about all the wonderful things this god has done for humanity, but you discovered that I lied or distorted the truth about nine of his feats, wouldn’t you begin to question the very nature and existence of that god?
Or bringing it down to terra firma a bit, what if I told you that the sky was falling, that it was going to be the end of the world unless we all sacrifice a pound of flesh and $10,000 to the Earth Goddess and I pointed to ashes falling from the sky to “prove” my case, but then you discovered that the ash was actually the result of a volcanic eruption, wouldn’t you begin to question the premise that “the sky is falling”?
Now here is a real example. On Halloween October 30, 1938, Orson Welles staged his infamous “War of the Worlds” radio show. Of the millions who heard the Columbia Broadcasting System broadcast, at least a million of them were said to have been ‘genuinely frightened’ and many did panic, calling police and others wondering what to do. The fallout from this little episode lasted for months as people tried to sort out what happened. Presumably, most people figured it out and were relieved to know it wasn’t a real invasion, but there were probably those who continued to believe it was real for some time to come after that despite the facts.
Well, this whole affair occurred as the trusting and gullible people of America have a tendency to just take on faith whatever the media tells them, because, after all, “They would never lie to us, would they?” And certain social scientists, PR men, psychologists and others working for the government were surely delighted to know how easy it was to manipulate the citizenry, or at least a large percentage of them. So that by now, mass mind-manipulation has evolved into a sophisticated science. Cleverly designed propaganda can be created to make people believe just about anything and this is what Gore’s film is. It is just that now people are starting to realize that, “Now wait just a cotten-pickin minute! A lot of this is inconveniently untrue. hmmm”
The point is to question what you are told. Don’t accept things on faith without some fact-checking. We are being re-engineered by diabolical people (and I encourage you to fact-check that carefully on this site). They have killed an estimated 1 million Iraqis, not including our own thousands of casualties. They have taken our constitutional freedoms and tossed them out the window. They have instituted a torture Inquisition and persuaded millions of Jack Bauer wannabees to believe torture is an essential part of life through propaganda and TV shows like ’24’. They have lied about their designs to set up a North American Union. They have inflated and collapsed the dollar through their Fed manipulations just so that they can offer their preconceived Amero “solution”. They have harmed the health of millions of Americans through their drugs, their vaccines, their GM foods and chemical additives like aspartame which have all been deemed “safe” by the government. They have kept the very existence of elite-level policy drivers like the CFR and Bilderberg a secret from the hoodwinked people. They have set up a totally controlled two-family Bush/Clinton one-party Republicrat dictatorship to rule over us for decades with no end in sight. They have staged terror attacks both here and abroad to frighten people into accepting Orwellian “solutions”. And they have invented anthropogenic global warming to stampede us into global taxation and hasten the onset of global government. Or at the very least, you should be able by now to see that they have exagerated their claims about it’s causes and effects. Need I go on?
We have been lied to. We are waking up to the deception. If this mass awakening progresses far enough to tip the scales toward humanity, we can come out of this into an era of peace, sanity, health, prosperity. If we don’t, a global fascist/communist regime is going to continue its march toward a world government police state which will be extremely unpleasant. Now that’s what is real and you can verify it in spades right here and on numerous other websites dedicated to truth and freedom.
Don’t be fooled!

The claim that sea levels could rise by 7m “in the near future” was dismissed as “distinctly alarmist”. Such a rise would take place “only after, and over, millennia”.
by Lewis Smith and Matthew Warren
AL Gore’s award-winning climate-change documentary has been exposed by Britain’s top court as alarmist, one-sided and littered with nine convenient untruths.
An Inconvenient Truth won plaudits from the environmental lobby and an Oscar from the film industry but was found wanting when it was scrutinised in the High Court in London.
Judge Michael Burton identified nine significant errors in the former presidential candidate’s documentary as he assessed whether it should be shown to school children. He agreed that Mr Gore’s film was “broadly accurate” in its presentation of the causes and likely effects of climate change, but said that some of the claims were wrong and had arisen in “the context of alarmism and exaggeration”.
In what is a rare judicial ruling on what children can see in the classroom, Justice Burton was at pains to point out that the “apocalyptic vision” presented in the film was politically partisan and not an impartial analysis of the science of climate change.
“It is plainly, as witnessed by the fact that it received an Oscar this year for best documentary film, a powerful, dramatically presented and highly professionally produced film,” he said.
“It is now common ground that it is not simply a science film – although it is clear that it is based substantially on scientific research and opinion – but that it is a political film.”
The analysis by the judge will have a bearing on whether the British Government can continue to have the film shown in every secondary school. He agreed it could be shown but on the condition that it was accompanied by new guidance notes for teachers to balance Mr Gore’s “one-sided” views.
The Government’s decision to show the film in secondary schools had come under attack from Stewart Dimmock, a school governor in Kent and a member of political group the New Party, who accused the Government of brainwashing children.
A spokesman for the NSW Education Department said yesterday the decision on whether the film should be screened in schools would remain at their discretion based on departmental guidelines.
The first mistake made by Mr Gore, said Justice Burton in his written judgment, was in talking about the potential devastation that would be wrought by a rise in sea levels caused by the melting of ice caps. The claim that sea levels could rise by 7m “in the near future” was dismissed as “distinctly alarmist”. Such a rise would take place “only after, and over, millennia”.
A claim that atolls in the Pacific had already been evacuated was supported by “no evidence”, while to suggest that two graphs showing carbon dioxide levels and temperatures over the past 650,000 years were an “exact fit” overstated the case.
Mr Gore’s suggestion that the Atlantic Ocean’s Gulf Stream would shut down was contradicted by the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change’s assessment that it was “very unlikely” to happen.
The drying of Lake Chad, the loss of Mount Kilimanjaro’s snows and Hurricane Katrina were all blamed by Mr Gore on climate change but the judge said the scientific community had been unable to find evidence to prove a direct link.
The judge also said there was no proof to support a claim that polar bears were drowning while searching for icy habitats melted by global warming. The only drowned polar bears the court was aware of were four that died following a storm.
National Climate Centre Manager Michael Coughlan said each of the inaccuracies raised could be argued either way, but that such disagreement was counter-productive to the overall debate.
“All we end up doing is throwing rocks at each other,” he told The Australian. “I’m not saying that one should put falsehoods in there but you need to grab their attention … The fact that they were going to give it to school kids to view is good because it makes them think about it and be critical.”
Former CSIRO climate scientist Dr Graeme Pearman said he had some specific issues on the film’s use of graphs and data, but said he worked with Mr Gore on his recent visits and said his understanding of the climate science was “very sound”.
