I really haven't the foggiest idea how the Nobel Prize is awarded but it used to make sense. Now the rules have apparently changed because to win the Nobel Peace Prize, you just have to be the right color. It also helps if you promote a global warming hoax that will make you a billionaire; and to win this once prestigious award you have to write a convincing bogus autobiography. Past worthy winners include" Albert Schweitzer, Martin Luther King, Linus Pauling, Mother Theresa, Lech Walesa, the Dalai Lama and many others who deserved the prize for their extraordinary lives benefitting the good of mankind, Then PC liberalism reared its nasty head and the Nobel prize committee lost its mind.
In 2007, Al Gore won the prize based on his global warming book and film, 'An Inconvenient Truth' which he shared with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Why?-the committee explained "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change".
Sure he did, phony graphs and polar bear pictures will do that. Meanwhile, Gore introduced the sale of carbon credits so that rich people could keep on destroying the environment by paying for permission to do so. Kaching! Al Gore is now a billionaire. It has been alleged that Irena Sendler, credited with saving 2,500 Polish Jews from the Holocaust, was a candidate for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize who lost out to Al Gore. Sendler, who died the following year would have been a Peace Prize winner in the highest Nobel tradition but she didn't have the marketing team of Gore.
In 2009, Barack Hussein Obama won the Peace Prize after he was elected president basically because he was the first black American president. He had done nothing to earn this award but hey, he's black and that was enough. Although the committee stated the reasoning as this: "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples." What extraordinary efforts, other than running a devious campaign of lies and sealed records of his life? As for world peace I wonder if the innocent victims of his massive drone attack policy that substituted for genuine military strategy would agree with that statement.
The Nobel Peace Prize 1992 was awarded to Rigoberta Menchú Tum" an indigenous Guatemalan woman," in recognition of her work for social justice and ethno-cultural reconciliation based on respect for the rights of indigenous peoples". Sounds like she deserved this award only it took many years for details of her story to be found not quite truthful. Former militant Marxist turned right wing conservative David Horowitz has called her a militant Marxist and demanded the Nobel be taken from her. That's not going to happen even if Horowitz's investigation of Menchu Tum turns out to be correct.
The Norwegians are a lovely people, even though all I've learned about them is from that Netflix original comedy-Lilyhammer. But it seems to me that this predominantly Caucasoid nation is probably embarrassed by its white privilege and has surrendered to liberal fascism by enacting stringent gun control laws. This insane policy allowed for the murder of 77 unarmed victims, mostly youths at a camp in the island of Utoya. Mass murderer Anders Breivik also blew up Oslo's government buildings earlier and could have been stopped before reaching Utoya had the police responded to the attack with tighter security and heeded an eyewitness report about Breivik. He had seen a man carrying a gun and dressed in uniform. He had even given them Breivik's license plate number and the murderer was stuck in traffic on his way to Utoya. But no roadblocks were set up, no roads were closed. It was not even considered. All available manpower was deployed to the government quarter. The buildings themselves did not have armed security guards.
Europeans have a hard time recognizing that they may have sociopathic maniacs living amongst them. All gun violence is laid at the feet of Americans as if the WWII and the Holocaust never happened but if the gun carrying Americans didn't step in to help, the war would have ended quite differently. Time for these elitists to grow up and admit bad things happen when evil is present.
Speaking of evil, recent court decisions have convinced many G0D-fearing Americans that the whole country (like Mexico) needs to be exorcised. This is nonsense. So the Supreme Court decides that same-sex marriage is constitutional. Actually it's been around for centuries. Emperor Nero married two men and played their bride and we know what happened to the Roman Empire after that period of debauchery and corruption. New leadership put an end to that and so will our country survive with good moral leadership.
There is hope on the horizon as more and more skeptics debunk Gore's hoax. At a conference on July 3 of Nobel Laureates, Norway's 1973 Nobel physics laureate, Ivar Giaever, give a truth-telling "Emperor's New Clothes" speech about the global warming hoax. The majority of the Nobel laureates who are real scientists refused to sign the alarmist global-warming letter. In his speech which will never be reported in the mainstream media, he said: To my surprise both "alarmist" and "deniers" (I guess that I'm quoted as a "denier") measure the average temperature for the whole earth for a whole year to a fraction of a degree, and that the result is significant. Of course it's not! How can you possibly measure the average temperature for the whole earth and for the whole year and come up with a fraction of a degree?"
I sincerely hope that our allies in Europe take the trouble to hand out their future awards to the truly deserving rather than to those whom the social media determines show real bravery.
But if either Caitlin Jenner or Supreme Court Justice Kennedy wins the next Nobel, I give up.
