08-05-2009 17:35

California Governor Arnold Scwarzenegger and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who now aspires to succeed him, both think that the rest of the world, and, most of all Detroit, should get hip to California's cutting edge environmental fashion.

The TSG facilitating protest at Westminster Cathedral
The British police public order manual is a secret document establishing a paramilitary third force in the UK, under the control of a private company (ACPO) with permission from the home office. It's long overdue that more information about this was in the public domain.

Newsom for a Nuclear California

06-05-2009 07:19

Governor Greenwash I, and. . . II?
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom both support big corporate renewable energy projects, mega solar, wind, wave, and even hydroelectric, along with every other sort of big corporate power,but,renewables just aren't enough for really big guys, like Schwarzenegger and Newsom. To be a really big guy, or a really big nation, and an international power, you've gotta have nuclear power. And nuclear weapons, the invention that gave rise to nuclear power, and nuclear power politics.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom both know it, and support it.

Swine Flu Pandemic Political and Mainstream Media Disinformation

04-05-2009 00:27

"They also serve to distract people's attention from a devastating global economic crisis which is leading the World into mass poverty and unemployment, not to mention the war in the Middle East and the broader issue of US-NATO war crimes. The Real Global Crisis is marked by poverty, economic collapse, ethnic strife, death and destruction, the derogation of civil rights and the demise of State social programs. The EU announcement of the swine flu pandemic inevitably serves to weaken the social protest movement which has spread across Europe. The emergency measures which have "closed down" entire urban areas, are widely perceived as a pretext of the Felipe Calderon government to curb mounting social dissent against one of the most corrupt administrations in Mexcican history. In Mexico, the May 1st Parade, which was directed against the Calderon government, was cancelled."

There is only so much sexism an anarchist can take

03-05-2009 21:09

When I saw that the Anarchist Movement Conference 2009 is being promoted with the image of a woman, I couldn’t help thinking of the irony. As with national states, the female body is again used as the symbol of some desired unity. However, what that image has made me think of is the persistence and entrenchment of sexist practices among anarchists, an important contributing factor to their actual lack of unity.

When, Where the Pope Inspires No Hope

03-05-2009 11:23

Pope will be stepping into “a diplomatic minefield,” where the Catholic highest spiritual authority will be unmercifully scrutinized by the protagonists of the one hundred year old Arab – Israeli conflict for the Holy Father’s every step, word and handshake, which would force him into the defensive in an impossible balancing act that will rule out any hope his presence is supposed to inspire.

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom now aspires to succeed Arnold Schwarzenegger as California's Governor Greenwash II. His ambitions are boundless and, non-native birth doesn't stand in his way to the White House. Newsom has promoted himself, in California, as an environmentalist, because, to be elected in California, you have to be green, or you have to greenwash.
