Green Shadow Cabinet: The Black Budget

September 18, 2013

Marsha Coleman Adebayo, Director of Government Transparency and Accountability

The existence of a secret U.S. budget, amounting to a well-financed shadow government, used to spy on American citizens and monitor their daily activities, was always derisively consigned to insane conspiracy theorists. However, recent revelations by National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden have exposed details of the secret budgets used by the intelligence community, known as the “Black Budget.”

Green Shadow Cabinet: The Pedagogy of Hip Hop: Media consolidation, Black manhood, and art in America

September 12, 2013

Shamako Noble, Secretary of Culture

Structurally, technologically and culturally speaking, there is no “music industry” any more. There is also no “movie industry” any more. Those two things have been consolidated into a more generic and all encompassing, “entertainment industry.” But that’s not even the kicker. The kicker is that technically, the entertainment industry is now a sub-division of a much larger and more insidious industry known as the “telecommunications industry.” This is the delivery system under which all media and cultural distribution is being consolidated.

Kevin Zeese: Obama should seek legal prosecution, not illegal war

Kevin Zeese
September 4, 2013
Kevin Zeese, Attorney General

The most effective deterrent against the use of chemical weapons is not the mass bombing of Syria, an action that would be illegal under international law and counterproductive, but to use the international legal system that has been built since World War I and take legal action under the Chemical Weapons Convention.Members of the Security Council should immediately pass a resolution referring the issue of the use of chemical weapons in Syria to the International Criminal Court.
