New Research on State Crimes Against Democracy

By Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff
DailyCensored.com

New research in the journal American Behavioral Scientist (Sage publications, February 2010) addresses the concept of “State Crimes Against Democracy” (SCAD). Professor Lance deHaven-Smith from Florida State University writes that SCADs involve highlevel government officials, often in combination with private interests, that engage in covert activities for political advantages and power. Proven SCADs since World War II include McCarthyism (fabrication of evidence of a communist infiltration), Gulf of Tonkin Resolution (President Johnson and Robert McNamara falsely claimed North Vietnam attacked a US ship), burglary of the office of Daniel Ellsberg’s psychiatrist in effort to discredit Ellsberg, the Watergate break-in, Iran-Contra, Florida’s 2000 Election (felon disenfranchisement program), and fixed intelligence on WMDs to justify the Iraq War.…

Face the Shadow First: Seeking the Hidden Dimensions of American and Global Politics

Probe Beneath the Surface of the Obama Era at the “Understanding Deep Politics” Conference in Santa Cruz, May 14-16

By Byron Belitsos
May 4, 2010

Some say it began with the invasion of Iraq. Others, with the inauguration of George W. Bush for his second term. Many point to the day of 9/11. But those in the know–including ten distinguished speakers headlining the “Understanding Deep Politics” Conference in Santa Cruz this May 14-16–trace the era of deep politics further back: Some to JFK’s assassination; others, to the aftermath of World War II.…

DailyCensored.com World News

“There is nothing so strong or safe in an emergency of life as the simple truth.”

— Charles Dickens

We face what appears to be a military industrial media empire so powerful and complex that truth is mostly absent or reported in disconnected segments with little historical context. A case in point: The London Times reported on June 5, 2010, that American troops are now operating in 75 countries.…

A Response to Chip Berlet’s ‘Toxic to Democracy’

By Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff
July 26, 2010
Media
Freedom Foundation/ProjectCensored.org

In his recent essay “Toxic to Democracy,” Political Research Associates (PRA)
Senior Analyst Chip Berlet uses the very same methods of demonization by association
that he so strongly opposes. Berlet convolutes historical context, ideological
differences, and progressives vis-a-vis extreme conservative/neo-con/libertarians
in a diatribe of meaninglessness.

Berlet lumps valid academic research on State Crimes Against Democracy (SCADs)
in with anti-Semitic jingoism and far right wing extremism.…

“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful
than the risk it took to blossom.”
Anais
Nin

As the eloquent Ms. Nin explains above, there is such a thing as a
pain threshold. In the struggle for social change, this may be the point at
which inaction become more agonizing than the fear we all harbor about stepping
