If we have learned nothing from the Iranian Election and subsequent protests, we should have learned the power of the internet, more importantly- YouTube, Twitter, Google, Yahoo!, email, cell phone video, FaceBook, MySpace, etc., and how it can be used effectively to launch a movement. I can’t encourage you more now than ever to enlist this same communications model by forming groups within every masajid and linked nationally/internationally to act as our own “griots” and news services. I ask ALL of you to join my Twitter following ( http://twitter.com/ajalil ) and form your own! We all know that Google, AT&T, Twitter, etc., are partners with the government in gathering and sharing information and intelligence manipulation, as we have been aware that the government has infiltrated groups for years. But don’t let that bother you, you will not engage in any illegal activity and can not afford not to use the tool. Do it!

We have many music, film and entertainment artist and industry executives, as well as many others, that are interested in this project that will travel the world.

1) Music- several enhanced CD’s and DVD’s with music videos by genre with application for soundtracks, scores, ring tones, commercials, other compilations and mix-tapes in the genres of:
a) Hip Hop
b) Conscious Rap
c) R & B, Pop
d) Spoken Word
2) Film and TV- a feature film, made for TV movie, documentary, and/or straight to DVD release, featuring material never before presented covering the 1960’s eras from the Civil Rights and Black Power Movement to the 1980’s guns and Crack Cocaine epidemic to present day; with the 1960’s Soul music from that time to now that has also evolved and yet remained constantly the same thru sampling; from Motown and the Philly Sound to Hip Hop, to Gangster Rap and the Dirty South Krunk; from the Viet Nam War, “Free Love Generation” and Gay Liberation to MTV/VH1/BET; from Collard greens to Foie Gras; from White Port and lemon juice to Cristal; from Black and White TV’s to IPODS; from the 1960’s Martin Luther King led March on Washington to the Million Man March to the Millions More March of 2007; from the 1960’s FBI/CIA COINTELPRO to the 2008 Hip-Hop FBI/CIA COINTELPRO today; from Blackploitation films to Blacks being exploited in film, Reality shows and music videos; all encompassed in a passionate love story of young, devoted, tender love that lead to a undying struggle to keep the family together in the face of constant, insurmountable odds and challenges;

5) Merchandising- All goods
We will produce original music, of the highest professional quality by the most respected artist in the industry. Every track will be of the highest quality recording and will be mixed “radio ready.”
The concept is simple: one might know our roster for their respective careers, but now we will expose their creative musical side for this worthy cause. Every artist and track will stand on its own, centered around the Project material and theme. Once two commercial CD/DVD editions are completed, the estimated timetable to officially launch nationally will be determined, planned and executed.
This is truly a benefit for the those in need. The bottom line is, producers will provide the tracks to the recording artist, studio time where possible, mixing, remixing and mastering support. Being that we are non exclusive, the Family retains 100% ownership and may continue to license the songs to other interested parties. Something like this has never been compiled before and brings a uniqueness to the market. I know that the fans of these artists will really enjoy getting to know this side of them.
Here is a link to an article on Imam Jamil with comments from Imam William Abdur-Rahim (Shareef’s father) that was posted in CNNSI.
I have posted new Imam Jamil videos and documents for a more complete package for review by prospective participants in the Imam Jamil film/music project and visitors will get more info and register at http://superstarmanagement.wordpress.com/imam-jamil-abdullah-al-amin-film-and-music-project/ or can fill out the submission proposal form on the CASTING/Imam Jamil Film and Music Project page at our Superstar Management website.

I would still like more and different media events and I will post others that I have this week.

***** Want to have YOUR NEWS broadcast?
NOW YOU CAN!
There has been a delay in the debut of Black Television News Channel (BTNC), until January 2010. BTNC announced a multi-year carriage agreement with Comcast Cable (CMCSA, CMCSK), the country’s leading provider of cable, entertainment and communications products and services, for a multi-city market to launch in 2009, that will be a 24/7 cable news network that provides original news programming with a distinctly African-American perspective which will fill the major void in coverage of African American-focused news and features by today’s mainstream media.
In our effort to succeed where BET and TV One has failed, we will actually have an excellent news department that focuses quality journalism on topics pertinent to the African-American community, as well as throughout the African diaspora.
BTNC will have the first regular, nightly, national news anchors in 24 hour broadcast news history to report on news aimed at the hungry black news audience, and it would be a welcome sight!
The broadcast will be stimulating and informational, and the personalities articulate and professional that “keep it real” to meet the needs of a very diverse people within a single ethnic group.
It will deliver legitimate news introduced from all perspectives from the various corners of the black community representing all our points of view, which will differ depending on where the camera takes you and who you talk to.
As there is a big world outside of our neighborhoods, the programming will feature people who are not African American, but who pique our interests and some of whom directly or indirectly affect black households and families as well as the rest of the world. You will see your neighbors and friends, too!
So the diversity of news that will be provided will be correct, honest and help the digestion of information and not tell you how to live your life. BTNC will give you the next dimension of viewer new by adding the “thought provoking, life changing element” to your news experience. It will bring inspiring commentary that will add something new to every very controversial topic!
BTNC’S KEY TO SUCCESS?
People are asking “how can BTNC succeed when others have failed?”
It’s a tired old saying, we know, but it happens to be true! BTNC’s success comes from thinking outside the box.
For instance, if you think inside the box (put your mouse inside the box), the box…slows or even stops.
If you move your mouse (and symbolically your thinking) away from the box…and you gain momentum.
We rest our case.
BTNC will continue to think outside the box, and will stay as far away from the box as is possible to achieve maximum momentum.
(Somewhat addicting, isn’t it?)
Below these links is some info on me that may enlighten you that I don’t share with many people. You may not know I don’t believe in “No one’s ever done that before”!
Click on my Haas Linked In Profile here or above and you will find things that I’m sure you did not know.
There is also info and links about and to many things I’ve never shared with too many people. The below profile contains the IRS case, the Law and Business schools subject matters including the Shariah-Riba compliant Tax Course and “White Paper” on the “al-Hakim Federal Tax Ruling” from the Wake Forest University School of Law, the portrait, the link to see the ABC- News special on the music conference at Masjid Warith Deen and the Historic 1979 BALSA Law Conference.
There’s info on the “Rap The Vote” concert/voter registration political campaign I did in Russia with Hammer in 1995 to secure the re-election of Russian President Boris Yeltsin. That strategy was hailed internationally as a political coup that saved Russian democracy and was the basis for the movie “Spinning Boris“starring Jeff Goldblum.
Please give me a call after you have had a chance to review everything and let’s arrange a chat session to discuss some possibilities. It’s always my pleasure and I hope to speak with you soon.

1978- “The National Basketball Association (Denver Nuggets) vs. The National Basketball Players Association (Brian Taylor)”
In an unprecedented case in Professional Basketball he negotiated an addendum to the contract and represented the player in a dispute of the contract that was originally negotiated by the players union director. The inherent problems that this situation provided for the National Basketball Association, the Denver Nuggets, and most importantly the Director of the NBA Players Union and the Union itself, were incredible. In mid-season the team breached the contract with a late payment that triggered a clause in the addendum that allowed him to opt out of the contract. The player withheld his services in the middle of the season and the team filed for arbitration. In prevailing in this matter the player received his pay, was declared free of his contract (“a Free Agent”), and allowed to negotiate a new contract with the team of his choice. Cite Arbitration Decision in the matter of “The National Basketball Association (Denver Nuggets) vs. The National Basketball Players Association (Brian Taylor)”, Jan. 25, 1978….
He negotiated a series of contracts that included many unprecedented benefits to the individual clients, one of which was interest-free loans that could be forgiven. Upon review by the Internal Revenue Service, the contracts and returns where thrown out and challenged by the IRS as the IRS filed suit. After an 8 year legal battle, he prevailed in Federal Tax Court and established that Interest free Loans where in fact legal. This unprecedented legal ruling was established as a standard in the Tax Laws and was written in several National Law Journals.

The Historic “al-Hakim” Tax Code §7872  Ruling
After al-Hakim’s victory in the Federal Tax Courts against the Tax Commissioner, in December 2000 the IRS moved to change the Tax Codes with the historic “al-Hakim” Tax Code §7872  Ruling. The IRS changed the Federal Tax Codes such that it now “prevents no-interest loans” and was instituted to eliminate and close the Federal Income Tax loop-hole created with al-Hakim’s use of interest free loans in sports and entertainment financial transactions.

Tax Commissioner has academians teaching al-Hakim’s use of interest free loans in Tax Free financial transactions as part of the Wake Forest University School of Law Federal Tax Course on “ISLAMIC AND JEWISH PERSPECTIVES ON INTEREST” and al-Hakim’s historic impact on Shariah-Riba Complaint financial transactions in the business world.
Joel S. Newman is a professor at Wake Forest Law School, Winston Salem, North Carolina.
In this report, Newman discusses financial transactions that allow devout Muslims and Jews to obey religious prohibitions against interest, while giving investors a return on their investments. The tax treatment of these transactions is considered. An integral part is al-Hakim’s case.
1977- “The Major Leagues of Professional Baseball Clubs (Atlanta Braves) vs. The Major League Baseball Players Association (Alvin Jr. Moore)”
He negotiated a professional Baseball contract for a rookie player that contained several special clauses and one that allowed him to declare himself a “Free Agent” in the middle of the season if he was dissatisfied with his playing time. The National Baseball League President ruled against the clause citing that “it contained provisions inconsistent with the Reserve System Articles of the new Basic Labor Agreement” and threw it out, whereupon he took the case to arbitration. He prevailed in this case of unprecedented legal rights benefits and it was hailed by the Director of the Players Union, Marvin Miller, as “the single greatest advancement of player rights in baseball history and as valuable as any inherent rights in the Major League Players current Basic Labor Agreement.“ This clause became the industry standard and was the example distributed to all other representatives by the Players Union to be included in their contracts. Cite: Arbitration Decision No.32 in the matter of “The Major Leagues of Professional Baseball Clubs (Atlanta Braves) vs. The Major League Baseball Players Association (Alvin Jr. Moore)”, Sept. 7, 1977.
2005- Federal Complaint with United States Attorney General, Department of Justice, of Hate Crime of Islamophobia and Xenophobia
In 2005 he filed a federal complaint with the United States Attorney General, Department of Justice, of a hate crime of Islamophobia and Xenophobia committed against him by Judge David C. Lee during a trial in Superior Court of Alameda County, California, that is moving forward with the investigation and charges of criminal extrinsic fraud upon the court of the State of California, spoliation of evidence, and the doctrine “unclean hands” against defendants/hostile intervener AAA Insurance; Ron Cook and the law firm of WILLOUGHBY, STUART & BENING; defense counsel Steve Barber and the law firm of Ropers Majeski; and others. The complaint, drafted and filed by al-Hakim in pro per, has broad based support from Democrats and Republicans, was submitted by Congresswoman Barbara Lee with the offices of Congressmen John Conyers, and Charles Rangel, has been review by several legal experts, with advocacy by former Republican Senator J. C. Watts, a client of al-Hakim’s.
The complaint addresses the concern that a Superior Court Judges’ conduct rose to the level of consideration for a Federal Crime and a Civil Rights violation because the bench upon which the judge rules is “under the color of law” and certainly the violation of anyone’s civil rights is a federal crime. “Muslims, just as any other group, can not be afraid to speak up when their rights have been abridged. If one does not speak up, then the transgressions goes unreported and the perpetrator goes on to harm again unchecked, it does not matter whom the transgressor is” said al-Hakim. The complaint, perhaps even more importantly, not only requested Merrily Friedlander, Chief of the Civil Rights Division, to make an investigation of a judicial hate crime, but also the many other civil rights and due process violations of judicial misconduct, and attorney extrinsic fraud upon the court and law that are themselves directly the matters complained. J. C. Watts in asking “What does a supposed terrorist act in Russia have to do with the negligent contamination of a home in America?” posed the argument that there must be consideration of and a response to the many issues in the complaint.
2005 – Present, “Powe Folks” NBA World Champion Basketball Camp at Leon Powe of the NBA World Champion Boston Celtics
Promoted, Marketed and provided Media for Leon Powe’s “Powe Folks” NBA World Champion Basketball Camp.
In Game 2 of the NBA Finals, Powe, a second-year, second-round draft pick from Oakland was the Celtics hero. Years earlier, he was his family’s hero, as he helped keep his siblings together while they bounced between 26 different homeless shelters in a year during a patch when his mother couldn’t afford shelter. It’s one of the most touching sports stories in ages, and his emergence as a playoff force only highlights it.
ABC/ESPN produced a short biography on how Leon overcame tremendous adversity to make it on the Boston Celtics. The night this aired, Powe wowed the international television crowd as he scored 21 points off the bench in less than 15 minutes to spark the Boston Celtics to a 108-102 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers to take a 2-0 lead in the NBA Finals.The Celtics went on to win the NBA Championship.
November 1995- M C Hammer in Russia, The Re-election of Russian President Boris Yeltsin by “Our Home Is Russia”, Russian Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin’s Political Party
Prime Minister Chernomyrdin’s party was struggling to distance their leader from the unpopularity of the Government he headed, resolved to using western style campaign strategy. “Our Home” promised economic stability and continuation of the Democratic course of Yeltsin’s government.
November 1995 al-Hakim executive produced, produced, filmed and broadcast on Russian National TV a series of concerts in St. Petersburg and concerts in Moscow by MC Hammer in an urban style, “Rap-The-Vote” to secure the 18-45 voter turnout and re-election of President Boris Yeltsin. Polling after the concerts was overwhelmingly positive..
“Hammer is our father and rap is a very serious subject for me and if Chernomyrdin can give us Hammer then we will give him our vote.” said Oleg, an18-year old Russian rap fan in attendance.
Being Prime Minister gave Chernomyrdin a huge advantage in access to Russian voters, with slick campaign posters, he told AP “we are using American pop music performances to drum up support among Russian youth for his political campaign”; the video scenes showed M.C. Hammer performing. Chernomyrdin’s travels around Russia in his capacity as Prime Minister, but looked more like the political campaign trail of an American President.
This strategy was trumpted as “world altering” for saving Russian democracy with Yeltsin’s re-election ensuring continuity in the evoultion of Russia and securing world peace.
This strategy was heralded world wide by political pundits as “incredibly brillant”, a “triumph for democratic reform” and “world altering” in it’s effect of having “saved” Russian democracy, as Yeltsin was the only alternative in ensuring continuity in the evoultion of Russia and securing world peace.
This coup, a miraculous event in history, was depicted and cannonized in a 2004 film “Spinning Boris” starring Jeff Goldblum, Anthony LaPaglia and Liev Schreiber.
“Spinning Boris” The Best President of Russia America Ever Had ..L. A. Times Review
Jeff Goldblum, Anthony LaPaglia and Liev Schreiber star as a trio of elite American political campaign operatives who were hired in secret to manage Russian President Boris Yeltsin’s election campaign in 1996. He’s polling at 6 percent with the election a few months away. First, they must get someone’s attention; they succeed finally with Yeltsin’s daughter, then it’s polling, focus groups, messages and spin. Even as Yeltsin’s numbers go up, they are unsure who hired them and if Yeltsin’s allies have a different plan in mind than victory. When the going gets toughest, they put a spin on their stake: democracy and capitalism must win. They orchestrate the most spectacular political comeback of the twentieth century – as they “sold” Boris Yeltsin to the Russian public gaining Yeltsin’s successful re-election.
The Re-election of Russian President Boris Yeltsin at Excerpts of “Clinton Secrets” in a book by JOHN DIAMOND
The campaign tactic was their most effective strategy, greatest strength- uniquely different and vastly superior to anything Russia had ever witnessed. This strategic plan with our expertise well grounded in modern American campaigning got Yeltsin re-elected. This was simply a matter of fact that he was the best the modern world could get compared to the alternative communist and he was fully supported by the U.S.
A State Department memorandum, marked “confidential,’’ summarized then President Bill Clinton’s meeting with Yeltsin at a summit in Egypt, where Clinton told Yeltsin he ”wanted to make sure that everything the United States did would have a positive impact and nothing should have a negative impact’’ on Yeltsin’s re-election. The memo added the U. S. wanted an upcoming summit with the Russian leader to be successful to “reinforce everything that Yeltsin had done.’’
