CIA Boss Says New Al-Qaeda Are White Westerners
Citing absolutely no evidence whatsoever, CIA boss Michael Hayden told NBC's Meet The Press yesterday that Al-Qaeda is training new fighters that "look western" and could easily cross U.S. borders, in the latest attempt to re-focus the mammoth apparatus of anti-terror against the American people.

Ask a Scientist [topic: tornadoes]
April 1, 7-9pm FREE Axis Cafe 1201 8th Street (btw. 16th & Irwin)
This Month's Topic: Tornado Research in the Field
'Tornadoesare without question the ultimate manifestation of extreme weather. Noother meteorological event is as violent or awe inspiring.' (ChrisBurt, Extreme Weather) You better believe it! While even a humble F0 or F1 on the Fujita Scale (like the one that visited South San Franciscoin 2005) can damage property and push cars off the road, a monster F5tornado can rip a house right off its foundation and obliterate it.These treacherous giantscan reach a mile or more in width and can charge across the landscapeat over 70mph. And while the sustained rate of hurricane winds hasnever exceeded 200mph (in recorded history), the winds of the mostintense tornadoes can exceed a mind-boggling 300mph. Why and howdo these atmospheric powerhouses form? What is it about the uniquetopography of North America that makes the U.S. home to more tornadoesthan any other country? And most important, why would anyone want to get anywhere near one? One way to find out: let's ask John Monteverdi, meteorologist and storm chaser.
ABOUTTHE SERIES: Ask a Scientist is an informative, entertaining, casualscience lecture series, held at a San Francisco cafe. Each eventfeatures a speaker on a current topic, a short presentation, and theopportunity to ask all those burning questions that have been keepingyou up at night. No tests, grades, or pressure…just food, drinks,socializing, and conversation about the universe’s most fascinatingmysteries.

Since 10th March 2008, there has been a heavy crackdown on Tibetans by the Chinese Authorities.

     On April 9th 2008, this very Olympic Torch will pass through San Francisco, it's ONLY stop in North America! Join Cyphertown and to stand in solidarity with the Tibetan People's Historic Uprising Movement and this global momentum to assist Tibetans in gaining their right to self-determination.

This funny documentary is nevertheless one of the 
best 911 truth films. It does something that none 
of the other 911 truth films do: it shows us that 
there's a large movement out there. It shows us 
that there's a rational, valid, and organized voice 
rightfully questioning the 'war on terror' and the 
event (9/11) that sparked it. The stand-up comics 
and stage artists in this film are both hilarious 
and compellingly informative. The music by David 
Rovics is fantastic and overall the film is just 
alive with energy and inspiration. It manages to 
connect to people through humor above all which 
is very powerful and which would resonate with 
anyone. Before and after the film, everyone's invited 
to indulge in our Humanist Tea House $5 donations accepted

Alternatives to the Aerial Spray Program: Supporting Local Food and Farms
Ecology Center 2530 San Pablo Ave Berkeley (@ Dwight, NEAR GOOD VIBRATIONS http://GOODVIBES.COM )
East Bay Pesticide Alert and Don't Spray California present a forum on the Light Brown Apple Moth. Will the light brown apple moth prove to be the invasive threat to California agriculture that the USDA claims it to be, or have agricultural damages been grossly exaggerated? What will happen to local organics if the California Department of Food and Agriculture is allowed to follow through on their proposal to douse the Bay Area with pesticides month in and month out for years to come? Should the vulnerabilities created by conventional agricultural practices be an excuse for eradication projects that put public and environmental health at risk?
Come hear about alternative approaches from:
• Agroecologist and UC Berkeley professor Miguel Altier
• Mayor of Albany and registered nurse Robert Lieber
• Farmers Robert Shultz and Ames Morison, and healthcare worker John Davis.
Find out about the spray plan, alternatives to it, and ways you can get involved!

Bush, Sr. killed JFK because JFK saved Cuba from the CIA invasion.   
Bush  stole  the  68 elections, but Democrats never complain about that.
JFK  ordered troops out of Vietnam.    This caused the CIA to shoot JFK, 
so they could invade Vietnam.

We support a strike by the soldiers. Did Bush sr. Kill JFK? How does that effect the election 2008?
My name is  Paul Kangas.  I am the Vice President for Veteran for Peace.  
It will take a strike by
front line GI's,  as happened in Vietnam & during WWI to stop this war.
We need to reach out to young boys, age 9 &     recruit them into the anti-war movement.  I joined the peace movement when I was age 9.  
Then I was drafted.         In the Navy, at age 19       in 1961, I helped organize a strike against  the Bay of Pigs.                       Thanks of President  Kennedy, the invasion of Cuba was stopped.       After than, I got orders to go to Vietnam in 1963.  Again I refused to go to war.  I was then sent to Iceland for a year of  
punishment duty.       Kennedy then ordered all US troops out of Vietnam, Executive Order 263.   Bush then killed JFK.
There was a movie made about strikes by front line troops, in WWI, called Merry Christmas.  Have you seen the movie?   Most vets have seen the movie.   It is quite powerful.   
Meet Paul Kangas, on    4-23-08, Herbst Theater, Rm 215, 401 VanNess & McAllister, 6pm, slideshow on the Bay of Pigs, the JFK assassination & the 2008 election.
Hear Paul Thur 4-3-08, KPOO, 89 fm, 1pm on the King assassination & the 2008 election & why neither Obama nor Clinton can stop this war, unless them want to be assassinated.
We support a strike by the soldiers. Paul Kangas,   You tube: paul8kangas
