Nobel Not So Noble: Unduly Prestigious Prize Committee Members Took Bribes From Chi-Coms

By Debbie Schlussel
If you know anything about the Nobel Prize, you know it’s a phony baloney, left-wing BS worth $1.2 million to the recipient. With winners like Jimmy Carter, Yasser Arafat, Shimon Peres, and Al Gore, need I say more?
Now, there’s more evidence the over-rated, unduly prestigious award is a bunch of crap. Nobel Committee members took bribes from China–in the form of an all-expenses paid luxury trip–to the country lobbying to win a Nobel in science for the first time in over 50 years:

Nobel Prize jurors who accepted all-expenses-paid trips to China to discuss the coveted awards are being investigated on suspicion of bribery, a Swedish prosecutor said Thursday.

Anti-corruption prosecutor Nils-Erik Schultz said he opened the probe to determine whether the trips in 2006 and 2008 were meant to influence the decisions of the Nobel committees. He declined to name the jurors or say how many were being investigated.
The probe was prompted by a Swedish Radio report that said three jurors from the medicine, chemistry and physics committees were invited to China to explain the selection process and what it takes to win a Nobel Prize. Chinese authorities paid for their plane tickets, hotels and meals, the report said.
If charged and convicted, the jurors would face fines or up to two years in prison. However, Swedish prosecutors often drop preliminary investigations without pressing charges.
Gunnar Oquist, the permanent secretary of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, which awards the Nobels in chemistry, physics and economics, acknowledged that the trips were inappropriate. . . .
Oquist said he hoped the case would not affect the reputation of the annual Nobel Prizes, which honor groundbreaking achievements in medicine, physics, chemistry, literature, economics and peace.

Dude, the reputation was already in the toilet, so, no, this won’t affect that.

The last time China claimed a science price was in 1957, when two Chinese researchers won the physics award, according to the Nobel Web site.

Question: How much did Yasser, Jimmuh, Al, etc. pay off the Nobel frauds to get their prizes? Was there a free trip to Ramallah to eat at Ahmed’s Falafel Hut? Don’t put it past them.
A prize from Cracker Jacks is far more impressive.

Yes, you do. You forgot about Yitzhak Rabin who received the award with Arafat and Peres. I don’t know if he bribed the judges, but he certainly paid for it with his life.

This Nobel Award is the biggest joke. A ham sandwich can get nominated. Three years ago double murderer named Tookie Williams was up for the death penalty and used the fact that he was a nominee of the Nobel Prize because he was reformed and wrote children’s book. They rationalized he saved many children from gangs and therefore saved lives. Getting traction from the liberal media he was seriously being considered for a commutation and people were marching in south central LA for this murderous fraud.
A radio show “John and Ken” started the “Tookie Must Die” Hour. Outrage ensued but Arnold denied the Nobel Prize nominee. Thankfully no stay of execution was given and Tookie died.
This article states Hitler and Stalin were once nominated in 1951.

If Arafat was worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize, then why not Hitler, posthumously? I mean – really – they both slaughtered a lot of people.
Why not Eichmann, or al Zarqawi, or even Saddam Hussein? That would be a nice touch, too.
The Nobel Peace Prize is so weirdly Orwellian both in its nominational concepts and to whom it has actually been awarded that even Orwell, himself, would get dizzy trying to figure it all out.

The Al Gore prize was really one for the books. Whether or not he deserved it, what does Global Warming (whatever your position on it is) have to do with peace???!!!

For obozo, gorp and their like, it should be the “piece” prize because they are all real piece(s) of crap! Obozo got it for his “oratory” skills? Wasn’t for using his mouth to speak because, in my opinion, he is a terrible speaker. So, really, what was he doing with his mouth?
