Committee news

Stay tuned to the Committee Site:

Big Changes Ahead!

This "HTML" site is designed to offer the cold proofs that our democracy has been hijacked, as well as keeping you informed of the most important news happening around the world.

Check it out. Follow a news topic listed on this site. American political corruption has had disastrous economic, environmental, political and foreign policy effects around the world. Pursue the links, search the database, and understand the character of power in the US, and what it has done to us and the whole world.

Reflecting on our tortured democracy while manually maintaining this HTML site has been a hell of a lot of work, and this effort has reached its logical limits.

The rising success of the HTML site has gone beyond its capabilities and mine. As this threatens the site's goal of facilitating a restoration of OUR DEMOCRACY, and as the revolutionary rights past radicals endowed upon us are deeply threatened, this HTML site must be replaced.

I am working to figure out how to transfer the content and structure of this site into drupal's CMS.

The depth of planning and knowledge required to complete the task is daunting, and will take time. But all of the time, work, and money are the most insignificant expenses when you consider the true value of our fundamental rights, our natural resources, and our social infrastructure that are threatened by the corporate fascists who have captured our government.

Stay tuned to our site: corruption never sleeps, and we will continue to shine a bright light on the criminals who are corrupting domestic politics, stealing our rights and money, and intervening in the domestic affairs of countries around the world.

Comments on the white house approving torture...

(Committee commentary: you should see the earlier ABC story confirming direct communication between the torturers in the field and CIA headquarters in DC. The present report tells us that these communications actually penetrated the White House, and and that the specifically requested tortures from the field received the real time approval of high executive branch officials from within the white house.

All the clues are in, and we can name the crime, the places it was committed, who committed it, and when they committed it. We now have comprehensive and direct proof that War Crimes were committed in the White House Situation Room, by the Principals of the Security council, on various dates in 2002.-committee commentary)

sf torch run: the story in pictures

The torch run was better without the torch than with it. If you missed it, you were there., The torch run did not happen. Well it happened, but not when and where the people of SF could watch. We had a torch run the excluded the people of San Francisco, and the western US. As I suspected, they published a different plan than they executed. This left a crowd of thousands in a traffic free zone. People were friendly, and a lot of great conversations and discussion broke out.

SF Flame of Shame: Are you going to tell china how you feel?

China vows to continue torch relay, guardian, 4-8-08

If you are, let's get together. I am going to hit downtown berkeley bart at around 10:30 am on wednesday.

Email or call me if you want company watching the torch of tyranny in SF.

Just think, we can observe a free speech zone!

I plan on making my opinion known at the opening ceremony, along the coming and going path, and at the ending ceremony, if there actually is a torch run. I am skeptical. In any case, following the torch may require the use a bicycle.

Independent of your means of travel, let's meet at least three blocks from mccovey cove (the start point) at least two hours before the announced start.

I would not be surprised at all if they started two hours early. Hell, they very well may cancel the whole f'n thing. China looks much better in the closet than in an olympic torch run. In any case, the chinese need to minimize the impact of public opinion and input in both the street and in the press.

However this works out, let's meet here or there.

Here's why I'm pissed china is sponsoring the olympics:

The Banners I use above are a couple of natual horizon shots stretched by photoshop.


#1: Lost Coast Sunset.

lost coast sunset

It's Me!

The trail coming up mountain, reflected. I was going west, tracking hwy 108 from the snowgate past the marine base. The line is a snowmobile track.
Most snowmobilers are the wintertime's version of the summertime cowboy/equesterian trail culture: generally a great group of people with a few notable exceptions. Just like backpackers.
#2: December. About 12 miles south of tahoe. Packing from tahoe to the sisters and back.

South of Tahoe

I've got a few thousand shots from three tahoe to whitney trips, and a whole lot more.
I will put them up after I find a way to digitize 'em.

Gap I came through

Lookin up at the PCT gap above levette lake. The previous december I glissaded down the face of this mountain with full winter pack. I emerged from the lowest gap on the crestline.

Hey, Getting to the bottom of this mess shows that you have real fortitude. I'm always curious as to how this has affected you. Feel free to give me a call, an email, or you can join up, and join the disscussion at the nextrevolution.org., alex.
