ERIC ZUESSE—Obama’s 2012 campaign against Mitt Romney featured prominently this trap for Romney, and he fell right into it. On 16 May 2016, I headlined “Who Is the More Vicious Liar: Trump, or Obama?” and I described there the exquisite deception that Obama had practiced against Romney and also against Putin — and against the American public — regarding U.S.-Russian relations, and Obama’s brilliant use and exploitation of the hopes by each one of those three entities in order to win the Presidency and defeat not only Romney but also Putin, and especially Obama’s own Democratic Party voters.

MAX BLUMENTHAL—Smith Parenti explains that Sharp worked for decades at Harvard University’s Center for International Affairs, nicknamed “the CIA at Harvard,” a “think tank that was theorizing, among other things, how the US could prosecute the cold war, and win. And Gene Sharp was very clear that he was anti-communist; he was very clear … as to his preferences for economic policy; he thought the government should get out of quote-unquote ‘intervening in markets.’”
Blumenthal notes that Sharp is a “figure who has influenced so many of the people we write about at The Grayzone,” and his work is frequently cited by “US assets in countries like Nicaragua or Venezuela, who are regime-change assets essentially.”

The pools which Japan intends to dump originated from the Fukushima Nuclear disaster. Japan insists that because they will only contain Tritium and not other radio-active elements, they will be safe to dispose into the Pacific. Paul Derienzo fears this sets a dangerous precedent for future dumps: “Maybe they’ll dodge a bullet on this tritium release, because its only 120 years and the ocean, but do you think that will be the end of it? Then you’ll never hear the end of it. They did it then, and they’ll do it again. These same tritium pools are underneath every nuclear reactor. Nuclear reactors create tritium like crazy.”
