National Right

Whenever people in the media speak about the integration of immigrants into our society, you will sometimes hear the phrase “melting pot” used to express the ability to combine disparate forms into something new, which is meant to conjure up an image of how iron and coal can be forged together to make steel. The problem is, quite literally, mixing people together from different backgrounds and cultures more often creates nothing more than crayons, waxy substances that can paint a thousand different pretty pictures of fantasy but doesn’t hold together well at all with the slightest heat.

Grassley Sends Scathing Letter to Feinstein – Refuses to Postpone Thursday’s Hearing – Warns About False Statements Made to Congress

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent ranking member of the Committee Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) a scathing letter Tuesday afternoon shooting down Feinstein’s demands to postpone Thursday’s hearing.

Grassley accused Feinstein and Senate Democrats of hiding Ford and Ramirez accusations from the Senate Judiciary Committee while secretly working with the mainstream media to circulate Kavanaugh smears.

Senator Grassley then warned about Ms. Ramirez’s flimsy accusations against Kavanaugh as reported in the New Yorker, “As you know, false statements made to the press are not subject to criminal penalty, but false statements to Congress are.”

5 Glaring Reasons Why the Rite Aid Mass Shooting Disappeared from Headlines So Quickly

Last Thursday morning, a deranged individual wishing to cause harm to innocent people walked up to her job at a Rite Aid warehouse and began shooting people. Breaking news alerts filled the internet as #Aberdeen trended on Twitter and the internet buzzed with people trying to find out who would do such a thing. However, shortly after the shooter was identified, the news — unlike most mass shootings — quickly faded from headlines and fell out of the news cycle.

Snochia Moseley, 26, was the deranged individual who began shooting innocent people at 9:09 am last Thursday. Four people died, including Moseley, according to Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler, after she turned the gun on herself.

As is the case after nearly every single shooting in the country — besides this one — mainstream media and anti-gun activists alike, parrot themselves into a fury of gun control rhetoric. But that did not happen this time. Why is that?

4chan Prankster Claims Punked Michael Avenatti With Hoax Kavanaugh ‘Train’ Gang Rape Accusation

A poster at 4chan made an unconfirmed claim Tuesday morning that he and his girlfriend punked porn star attorney and Trump antagonist Michael Avenatti. The two said they were behind Avenatti going public with an outrageously false story accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his prep school classmate Mark Judge of plying women at school era parties with drugs and alcohol so they could be gang raped by a “train” of men.

Avenatti abruptly locked his Twitter account Tuesday, claiming it was the result of attacks by bots and trolls.

U.S PLANS TO INVADE VENEZUELA WOULD BRING SAME SCALE OF CRISIS AS IRAQ WAR, Says Analyst

In August 2017, Donald Trump said he did not exclude the military option to solve the Venezuelan crisis, which provoked a strong rejection both inside and outside the United States. However, the idea remains present even though many express themselves against it, writes the Business Insider newspaper.

The military option for resolving the crisis in Venezuela is on the table or at least in the head of the US president. So the AP news agency reported earlier this summer that President Donald Trump had discussed the military invasion of Venezuela during a White House meeting last year. To bolster his arguments, Trump recalled the military interventions of Grenada and Panama, which he said were a success.

DISTRACT THEM WITH WAR! POROSHENNKO FACES CERTAIN ELECTORAL DEFEAT WITH 73% DISAPPROVING OF THE NATION’S DIRECTION

Things aren’t looking bright for Poroshenko as the beleaguered border-line ‘failed state’ of a nation, Ukraine, heads towards upcoming nation-wide elections which could see the undoing of the U.S installed politician.

About 73% of Ukrainians believe that Ukraine is moving in the wrong direction, 64% are in favor of radical changes in the country. This is evidenced by the data of a sociological study conducted by the group “???????” (‘Rating’).

At the same time, 12% of respondents are for maintaining the current state of affairs, 19% want a return to the past. 15% of respondents have the opposite opinion – they believe that the direction of the country’s development is correct. At the same time, 13% found it difficult to answer.

Israeli Media In Total PANIC Over Russian Transfer Of S-300 To Syria

The Israeli media is in a total frenzy over the forthcoming transfer to Syria of the Russian anti-aircraft missile system S-300. They recognize that these measures will lead to serious consequences for the Israeli Air Force.

However, as FRN notes, there is a less than even chance that Russia will not make good on the delivery, given its history with this question in the past, combined with patterns it has exhibited in the use of such announcements to win a concession from a third party.

But as the Jerusalem Post states , the appearance of the Syrian military S-300 will make it possible to modernize the air defense of the country profoundly and create a “threat to Israeli aircraft.”

‘Resistance’ Hero Brian Krassenstein Admits to Being Paid for Hijacking Trump’s Twitter Feed in Secret Recording

In a secret recording published by Los Angeles-based political activist Currie Dobson, “Resistance” hero Brian Krassenstein admits to being paid for his excessive anti-Trump tweets.

The purpose of this is, he admits, is to spam the president’s feed and prevent positive commentary from being visible at the top when people scroll through the responses.

When asked if being a member of the “Resistance” is a job for him, Krassenstein begins by stating that he has several businesses and that it’s just what he enjoys spending his time doing. He quickly goes on to admit that he also happens to be paid for it.

Trump Comes Out Swinging At Democrat ‘Con Game’ Against Kavanaugh

President Trump on Tuesday slammed Democrats for engaging in a “con game” to smear the reputation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Referring to entities that have tried to take down Kavanaugh for the crime of being a conservative as “con artists,” the President pulled absolutely zero punches in his first in-depth comments about the disgraceful political ploy.

“I think it’s horrible what the Democrats have done,” he said to reporters at a meeting with the United Nations General Assembly. “It’s a con game they’re playing … they’re really con artists.”

Additionally, Trump made it quite clear what he thought of the second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, and her flimsy accusations.

“The second accuser has nothing,” he said. “The second accuser doesn’t even know, she thinks maybe it could’ve been him, maybe not. She admits that she was drunk. She admits time lapses, there are time lapses.”

Turkey will release American pastor this month: Pompeo

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday he was hopeful Turkey would release this month an American pastor whose detention has rocked relations between the NATO partners.

"Yes, he could be released this month. He should have been released last month -- and he should be released today, in fact," the top US diplomat told reporters in New York where he is taking part in the UN General Assembly.

Pompeo reiterated that the United States considers Andrew Brunson, who has been detained for nearly two years on terror charges, to be "wrongfully" held.

"Pastor Brunson and the other US persons that are being held by Turkey all need to be released by Turkey and that needs to be done immediately," Pompeo said.

Tensions Grow As China, Russia, And Iran Lead The Way Towards A New Multipolar World Order

Logic and reason seem to have been abandoned long ago in Washington’s decision-making, even more so given that Trump has completely renounced all his electoral promises regarding foreign policy. The rapprochement with Moscow is now a distant mirage; the special relationship between Xi Jinping and Trump is just the latter’s propaganda, anxious as he is to reach an agreement with the DPRK and show some example of success to his base.

The logic of imposing more than $200 billion in tariffs on Chinese products, and then asking for strong support from Beijing in mediation with Pyongyang, seems more like the moves of a desperate person rather than those of an amateur.

"I Don't Give A Shit If It's A Crime": Fourth Veritas Video Reveals IRS Still Targeting Conservatives

James O'Keefe just dropped the fourth installment in his series exposing the corruption and bias in the 'deep state'. This report features two Internal Revenue Service (IRS) officials who candidly discuss the IRS’s unfair treatment of conservative non-profit groups.

The two officials in the report are Thomas Sheehy, an IRS tax examiner and member of the Austin Democratic Socialists of America in Texas, and Jerry Semasek, an IRS attorney in Washington, DC.

Via ProjectVeritas.com,

Flagrantly Targeting Conservative Groups
Sheehy boasts about and appears to justify former disgraced IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, who was mired in scandal for losing tens of thousands of emails regarding the Lois Lerner controversy. The Lois Lerner controversy occurred in 2013 and involved revelations showing that the IRS unfairly scrutinized conservative groups.

Iran video threatens missile strikes on UAE, Saudi Arabia

An Iranian media outlet close to the hard-line Revolutionary Guard published a video Tuesday threatening missile attacks on the capitals of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, further raising tensions after a weekend militant attack on an Iranian military parade.

The video, in a tweet by the semi-official Fars news agency that was later deleted, comes as Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei blamed Riyadh and Abu Dhabi for the attack in the city of Ahvaz on Saturday, which killed at least 24 people and wounded over 60.

The threat amplifies the unease felt across the Persian Gulf, as Iran’s economy reels in the wake of America’s withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal and Saudi and Emirati forces are bogged down in their war against Iran-aligned rebels in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This hit-piece reeks of an Israeli intelligence job, seeking to get more empathy by characterising itself (as it so frequently does) as "the victim" here, when the victims were Iranian soldiers of the Revolutionary Guards.

The fact that the statement from Khameni was excerpted from a far earlier speech, rather than being a statement on current events, is also another hit on its credibility and authenticity.

Look for a US/Israeli "false flag" to hit in some neighboring country, as the "justification" for the US and Israel to start pounding Iran militarily in the not too distant future.

Treasury Sanctions Foreigners for Israel

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) was ordered to register as an Israeli foreign agent on November 21, 1962 when it was part of the American Zionist Council. AIPAC has never complied with the order, and the Department of Justice has never enforced it. AIPAC’s associated think tank, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) was spun off from AIPAC as a survival tactic during a 1980s FBI investigation into AIPAC over economic espionage that produced America’s worst-performing bilateral trade agreement. Incredibly, decades later both organizations appeared to want to get into law enforcement and were instrumental lobbying President George W. Bush for the 2004 launch of the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence (OTFI) Treasury unit.

Russia will deliver advanced automated air defense management systems which will *dramatically* increase the Syrian air defense capabilities and prevent future “friendly fire” incidents.

Russia will use her electronic warfare capabilities to suppress satellite navigation, onboard radar systems and communications of warplanes attacking targets on Syrian territory in the regions over the waters of the Mediterranean Sea bordering with Syria.

This is a very flexible and elegant solution for the following reasons:

US Vows to “Overthrow” Iran as Terrorists Target Iranians

The failure of the US and British governments to now wholly condemn the recent Ahvaz attack as an act of terrorism carried out by what is undeniably a terrorist organization, alone raises suspicions. However, US policy papers have revealed a long-term open conspiracy to back armed militancy in Iran, just as the US, UK, and their allies have been exposed currently doing in nearby Syria as well as Libya in 2011.

As Iran grieved in the wake of the Ahvaz attack, US politicians hosted MEK terrorists in New York, vowing to overthrow the Iranian government.

Reuters in their article, “Trump lawyer Giuliani says Iran’s government will be overthrown,” would report:

President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Saturday said that U.S. sanctions on Iran are leading to economic pain that could lead to a “successful revolution” contrasting with administration comments that government change in Tehran is not U.S. policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The use of hired assassins by the US government, as a tool of statecraft, is so morally repugnant to me that I do not know where to begin.

Was there ever a time in the history when the American government actually understood the concept of moral, hard-won negotiations, and used them as the way in which to achieve its geopolitical objectives?!?

IF there were times when the US government conducted itself this way, those days are truly long gone.

The confirmation vote for Judge Brett Kavanaugh to become the next Supreme Court Justice was delayed last week after Christine Blasey Ford accused him, without evidence, of sexual misconduct during a party in high school nearly 40 years ago. Kavanaugh, along with three other "witnesses" named by Ford, all say they weren't at the party in question.

After a week of back and forth, in addition to political gamesmanship, Ford is scheduled to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday morning. Kavanaugh will also testify.

Whiny feminists claim new, bigger iPhones are somehow sexist

Their beef with the new phones is connected to their bigger size. Despite arguing for years and years that women and men are equal, they’d like to make an exception on this occasion and go with the idea that women’s hands are generally smaller than men’s to give themselves something to complain about.

While most of us would simply buy whatever phone is the right size for our hands and purposes and appreciate the variety on offer, some women have decided it’s a personal affront and are taking the opportunity to complain about Apple’s sexism. The company, they say, didn’t consider women’s needs when designing the phone. Are they assuming that no women engineers or designers have a hand in developing new products at Apple? Now who’s being sexist?

Rabbis for Human Rights in Solidarity with Bedouin Community, Celebrate Sukkot at Khan al-Ahmar

Rabbis for Human Rights (RHR) announced on that they have set up sukkah’s, which are temporary tents constructed for use during the week-long Jewish holiday of Sukkot, in the Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar, east of Jerusalem.

RHR decided to set up sukkah’s at the Bedouin village to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, also known as the Feast of Tabernacles, to show solidarity with the residents and as a protest against Israel’s planned demolition of the village.

RHR said, in a statement,

“We will express solidarity with our Bedouin brothers and we will live as they do for a little bit. We will remember that our forefathers lived as free human beings for 40 years in the Sinai Desert.”

“We will sit during Sukkot in the Judean Desert during the seven days of the holiday. We will live a life of confidence in our temporary quarters, together with members of the Jahalin tribe, who have been living in this vulnerable situation for years.”

But there is another dimension to the story that the international media has largely chosen to ignore. And that is that Israel is now carrying out almost daily air attacks on Syria, over 200 in the past 18 months, a country with which it is not at war and which has not attacked it or threatened it in any way. It justifies the attacks by claiming that they are directed against Iran or Hezbollah, not at Syria itself. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has insisted that any peace settlement in Syria include the complete removal of Iranians, a demand that has also been repeated by the United States, which is also calling for the end to the Bashar al-Assad government and its replacement by something more “democratic.”

Facebook has lately announced a series of major steps it would take to combat fake news and the global spread of misinformation that it says could influence elections, but the more we learn about just who it is Facebook is partnering with in this endeavor, the clearer it becomes that these initiatives are not at all designed to foster independent thought and discourse, but to ultimately ensure that public online discourse doesn't stray too far from official state narratives.

Mark Weisbrot, a co-director at the Center for Economic and Policy Research, recently slammed Facebook’s decision to work with US government-funded organizations as "Orwellian" — especially given the fact these organizations themselves "specialize in overseas propaganda."

Thus while claiming to fight Russian, Iranian, and other propaganda these very groups will strictly enforce an official establishment Washington and NATO view of world events.

Top US Officials Offer Competing Reasons for Protracted Occupation in Syria

White House National Security Adviser John Bolton told the media Monday that the US will continue to have a presence in Syria until Iran no longer does. Later in the day, Defense Secretary James Mattis contradicted Bolton’s stated mission - although he claimed otherwise - when talking to reporters at the Pentagon.

"We're not going to leave [Syria] as long as Iranian troops are outside Iranian borders, and that includes Iranian proxies and militias," Bolton told the Associated Press at the United Nations General Assembly, presumably referring to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps presence in Syria and Hezbollah.

Iranians Have ‘Very Sharp, Very Dark’ Memories of US-Backed Terrorists

Following the deadly attack in the Iranian city of Ahvaz on Saturday morning, which killed 25 and wounded 53 during a parade commemorating the 38th anniversary of the beginning of the Iran-Iraq War, terrorist group al-Ahvaziya, which is registered in the Netherlands but has ties to Saudi Arabia, claimed responsibility for the attack.

The attack was carried out by an unknown number of assailants on Saturday morning during a parade of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Iran's elite paramilitary formation, 12 of whom were killed by the terrorists. The parade went through Ahvaz, capital of Iran's southwesternmost province of Khuzestan, where much of the Iran-Iraq War was fought.

US Troops to Remain in Syria After Daesh Defeated to Train Locals - Mattis

US troops will likely stay in Syria for the foreseeable future to train local forces after Daesh (outlawed in Russia) is eliminated, Defense Secretary James Mattis said at the Pentagon.

"Once we get those patrols going along the line of contact and we take out the rest of the caliphate, our goal would be to set up local security elements that prevent the return of [Daesh] while at the same time diplomatically supporting… the Geneva process," Mattis said on Monday.

I wonder what the government of Syria has to say about that!

Bolton Slams Russia, Says S-300 Sale in Syria Is ‘Significant Escalation’

Speaking to reporters on Monday, National Security Adviser John Bolton slammed Russia for the announced sale of S-300 air defense systems to the Syrian government, demanding that they “reconsider” and warning that the US would view this as a “significant escalation” of the Syrian war.

Russia announced the move after a recent attack on the Syrian coast by Israel, during which a Russian Il-20 was shot down. Russia says the more advanced S-300s will be safer. Israel had insisted Syria deliberately attacked the Russian plane, while Russia says the Israeli jets were under fire from Syria and “hid” behind the larger Russian plane, getting it caught in the fire.

Bolton dismissed both of those explanations, however, saying that “really the party responsible for the shooting down of the Russian plane is Iran,” even though Iran had no involvement in the incident whatsoever.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a double-Picard face palm upon reading these statements, and one has to wonder; is being able to lie with impunity to the people with whom you are speaking the most significant requirement of America's National Security Advisor?!?

And please, how is Russia's sending in a defensive weapons system so that Syria can protect itself from attack, an "escalation", when the Syrians, with Russian help, have pretty successfully routed the rebels in their country?!? As my late grandmother would have said, "The horse is already out of the barn" here.

All of the above is because US intervention in Syria failed, miserably, and Bashar Al Assad has pretty much taken his country back. That why Bolton is at his hubristic, unhinged worst in these statements, and why the "next US-generated war" in the region will be engineered to change that outcome.

Advisor Bolton knows precisely where he wants this kind of intense anti-Russian demonization to steer the American people, and that most probably is into an horrendous war against Iran, Syria, and Lebanon, for good measure, with Russia, and possibly China lining up with these countries to defend them against the US onslaught.

And unfortunately, just as has happened with Iraq right before the US invasion/occupation, (Saddam, allegedly, had weapons of mass destruction, remember?!?), we are being force-fed a false narrative with which to "ease" the American public into the right mindset to allow for some kind of "false flag" against American interests, to be blamed on Russia, Iran,or Syria, or all of them, as the "justification" to proceed to war against them.

London Starts 'Resettlement' of White Helmets Activists From Syria to UK

The UK government confirmed on Monday that it had started "resettling" activists of the White Helmets group and their family members from Syria to the United Kingdom.

"Under the well-established practices of the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (VPRS), the Home Office is working closely with UNHCR, the Department for International Development and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to resettle [to the United Kingdom] the families [of White Helmets activists]," the statement read.

Earlier in September, Russian Ministry of Defense and Russian Foreign Ministry said that the terrorist groups controlling Idlib province in Syria, in cooperation, with White Helmets, were preparing a provocation using hazardous chemicals in case of Syrian army offensive in the province.

Open Season on Russians

The ordeal imposed on Russian citizens traveling or sojourning in Western states shows that hysterical Russophobia and official paranoia is out of control. It’s “open season” to criminalize all Russians.

The cases of Maria Butina detained in the US, and that of Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, the two men who traveled to Salisbury in England, are illustrative of a totally irrational anti-Russian mindset that has run amok.

All have been accused of being Russian agents. Butina is facing five years in an American jail if she is convicted of spying. Her lawyer maintains she broke no laws while in the US. The only thing she seems "guilty" of is networking with various social and political groups — and of being Russian.

The two men mentioned, fortunately, made it back to Russia before British authorities incarcerated them too on false charges.

Caught On Audio: Ford Adviser Ricki Seidman Plotted To ‘Defeat’ Kavanaugh Nomination In July

If Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation against Judge Brett Kavanaugh wasn’t suspicious enough already, now audio has emerged of her adviser, Ricki Seidman, describing a plot to “ultimately defeat” Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.

The audio, which was recorded by the Republican National Committee’s War Room, was taken from a July conference call between Seidman and the American Constitution Society. In the tape, Seidman states that “over the coming days and weeks there will be a strategy that will emerge” that “might ultimately defeat” Kavanaugh. “And whether or not it ultimately defeats the nominee it will, I think, help people understand why it’s so important that they vote,” Seidman concludes.
