The Secretary Of State Is Participating In Anti-Drone Protests?!?

Today, starting just a few minutes from now, a coalition of activist groups working under the umbrella title of Upstate NY Coalition to Ground the Drones & End the Wars is holding a protest rally outside the Hancock Air National Guard Base in Syracuse, New York. The site is a hub of drone activity, given the proximity of a Lockheed Martin facility that develops surveillance and attack drone aircraft for the U.S. government.

The Secretary of State, the Attorney General, and the Secretary of Health will give speeches before the crowd of protesters. The Secretary of Space and the Secretary of Peace will also be there.

anti-drone protestNow, you may be asking yourself why the Secretary of State, Secretary of Health, and Attorney General would be speaking to a group of people protesting against drones, which are a central aspect of Obama Administration’s policy. For that matter, since when are there cabinet secretaries of Space and Peace?

The truth is that the political leaders I’ve referred to aren’t members of the Obama Administration. They’re members of the Green Shadow Cabinet:

Ann Wright – Green Secretary of State
Kevin Zeese – Green Shadow Attorney General
Margaret Flowers – Green Secretary of Health
Bruce Gagnon – Green Secretary of Space
David Swanson – Green Secretary of Peace

Who else but Green Party leaders would, after all, dare to suggest that the U.S. federal government shouldn’t have the power to spy on people without a search warrant, or execute people without trial?

  • Who else but Libertarian Party leaders would, after all, dare to suggest that the U.S. federal government shouldn’t have the power to spy on people without a search warrant, or execute people without trial?

    This is more often the case!

  • There is no Libertarian Shadow Cabinet, if that what you mean. Do the people mentioned above actually have a chair in any level of the Green Party? Are they even Green Party members rather than just hypothetical cabinet members in a Stein administration?

    How do you know that Libertarian Party leaders weren’t there? Do you even know who the Libertarian Party leaders are to know whether or not they were there?

    • I also don’t know whether invisible fairies were there. I can’t prove to you that invisible fairies weren’t there.

      Count, why don’t you find me the evidence that libertarians were there?
