Why Did Ted Cruz’s Mass Murder Proposal Win Him Higher Poll Numbers?

After Senator Ted Cruz suggested that the United States begin carpet bombing ISIS, politicians and papers around him wrote it off as “bluster and bigotry,” “foolish”, and “…just silly.” By almost any standard, Cruz’s proposal was laughable [not to mention pathological & inhumane], and his rivals and the media called him on it. Yet, his poll numbers actually crept up, from 15 % to 18 percent, & one poll even had at 24 %.

Government Spying is “Chilling” Writers’ Freedom of Expression (Project Censored #7)

Mass surveillance has “badly shaken writers’ faith that democratic governments will respect their rights to privacy and freedom of expression,” according to a January 2015 PEN America report based on the responses of 772 writers from fifty countries. Reporting for Common Dreams, Lauren McCauley covered not only the PEN America report, but also a July 2014 report by the American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Watch indicating that US journalists and lawyers increasingly avoid work on potentially controversial topics due to fear of government spying.

Who Dies at the Hands of US Police? (Project Censored #8)

Who Dies at the Hands of US Police? (Project Censored #8)

Compared with other capitalist countries, the US is unquestionably different when it comes to the level of state violence directed against minorities, Richard Becker reported in January 2015 for Liberation. Using 2011 figures, Becker wrote that, on a per capita basis, “the rate of killing by U.S. police was about 100 times that of English cops in 2011.” Similarly, US police were forty times as likely to kill as German police officers, and twenty times as likely to kill as their Canadian counterparts. This, Becker noted, is probably not the kind of “American exceptionalism” that President Obama had in mind when he addressed graduating West Point cadets in May 2014.

Project Censored #17: Media ‘Whitewash’ Senate’s CIA Torture Report

Project Censored #17: Media ‘Whitewash’ Senate’s CIA Torture Report

Although the corporate and progressive press alike focused public attention on the Senate Intelligence Committee’s December 2014 report on the CIA’s secret program of abductions, “brutal” interrogations, and torture of terrorism suspects, Nafeez Ahmed reported that this coverage has “whitewashed the extent to which torture has always been an integral and systematic intelligence practice since the second World War.” Despite President Barack Obama’s claims that he officially banned torture in 2009, these practices continue today, “under the careful recalibration of Obama and his senior military intelligence officials,” serving to legitimize the existence and expansion of the national security apparatus, Ahmed wrote.
