A few years ago a friend of mind advised of how she had travelled from London to Washington with Al Gore in a private jet in the 80's. As well as determining from experience that Al was a lech, she learned that she was flying in Armand Hammer's private plane.
In a recent post I noted (from a USA Today post of all places) that Al Gore was administering a family trust that included a considerable investment in Occidental Petroleum. Who owned Oxy Petro? Armand Hammer.
Who was among the most venial capitalists in the 20th century, walking over and poisoning all below? Armand Hammer.
Who did Armand Hammer claim to own? The Gore Family
