Iranian Defector Reveals: 'U.S. Negotiating Team Mainly There to Speak on Iran’s Behalf'

NEW WAVE: 'Thousands' MORE Unaccompanied Children Crossing Border...

Unaccompanied children crossing the southern border into the United States still number in the thousands, probably the tens of thousands, even though the percentages are lower, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told Congress on Thursday. - CNS News

...Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) said he's happy the percentages are down, but he pressed Johnson to give him the "total numbers."

"Last year, 2014, the total number including the Mexican UACs (unaccompanied children), I believe, was 68,000," Johnson replied. "If you take out the -- and I'm doing this from memory now. If you take out the Mexican children, I believe the total number was about 58,000. I suspect, if it stays at the current rate, will come in at around 40 percent, 60 percent of 68,000, whatever that number is."

(Forty percent would be 27,200; 60 percent would be 40,800.)

"So you're still talking about -- and percentages are lower, but you're still talking about...

"Thousands of people, yes," Johnson said.

"Yes, yes, thousands..." Cuellar echoed.

Cuellar rounded the number of unaccompanied children expected to enter the U.S. this year to "30,000 individuals, or maybe less than 30,000. It's still a lot," the congressman noted....

Capitol Update Saturday, March 28, 2015

President's Message

It was a privilege to attend the NFRW 2015 Spring Board of Directors Meeting in Washington DC, March 18 -21 as CFRW State President. The informative four days began with a tour of Monticello. We had the opportunity to explore the grounds, Smith Gallery complete with blue prints and models of the house, a film in the visitors center Thomas Jefferson’s World, out buildings , his burial site and Jefferson’s beautiful home built on top of a hill surrounded by a magnificent 50 mile view. Thomas Jefferson was truly ahead of his time and he had so many innovative ideas. Our tour also included lunch at Michie Tavern complete with decor and food reminiscent of the late 18th Century.

Thursday was Legislative Day on Capitol Hill. We heard from many legislators including,Senator Lindsey Graham, Senator John McCain,and our own California Congresswoman Mimi Walters. We had a luncheon reception at the Capitol Hill Club with many GOP Senators and Representatives joining us including Missouri Senator Roy Blunt and North Carolina Senator, Thom Tillis. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and Vice Chair Sharon Day were guest speakers and after lunch we took a tour of the RNC office and visited our local representatives. The State Presidents meeting was in the afternoon. It is always enjoyable to share ideas with State Presidents from across the country. It is an honor and a privilege to attend the meeting as CFRW President. At this meeting we shared state projects for Caring for America and it was a thrill to have the opportunity to talk about our successful All Terrain Track Chair Project. The NFRW PAC hosted a very inspiring event with honored guest speakers Senator Chuck Grassley and newly elected Senator Joni Ernst. The day ended with a lively Regents event complete with piano music and a chance to relax after a very busy day!

The Friday and Saturday General sessions included NFRW Business and Committee reports. Congratulations to Carol Hadley for being elected to the 2015 NFRW Nominating Committee. Having served on the 2013 Committee I know it will be a very memorable experience for Carol. We also had some very passionate speakers! Kellyanne Conway, founder of WomenTrend spoke about how women look at the issues and she stressed how important it is that more women run for office. Kellyanne will also be doing the Straw Poll at the NFRW Convention in Arizona. Susan Allen became First Lady of Virginia when her husband George Allen was elected 67th Governor of Virginia . She asked us what are we doing on our journey? She spoke to us about being positive about conservatism, online opportunities to get our message out like virtual precincts and virtual clubs and appealing to your best hope not your strongest fear! Mrs. Allen has just completed a book about Ronald Reagan. Newt Gingrich was our Friday luncheon speaker and Mr. Gingrich always does a very entertaining and informative presentation.

On Friday afternoon there was a choice of 3 workshops. I attended the most inspiring and innovative presentation I have ever attended on Grassroots politics. Holly Robichaud is a 4 time Pollie Award winner and she really thinks out side of the box with great success!

On Saturday we had the opportunity to attend the luncheon for Unlocking Potential, hosted by Carly Fiorina. The luncheon speakers included Michele Reagan Arizona Secretary of State, Missy Shore, Public Relations expert and of course Carly Fiorina! Every time I hear Carly speak, I still can’t believe that California actually reelected Barbara Boxer in 2010 rather than electing Carly Fiorina as our US Senator?? Ladies we have a lot of voters we need to educate for the 2016 election! What an INSPIRING four days!

Thank you for all you do,

SB 128 Update

On Wednesday of last week, SB 128 (Wolk, D) was heard and passed out of its first committee. As you will recall from last week's Capitol Update, SB 128, or "Aid in Dying", is OPPOSED by the CFRW. SB 128 seeks to allow terminally ill people to choose to end their lives with physician prescribed medication. This is an extremely dangerous bill with many unforeseeable or unintended consequences. The bill passed out of the Senate Health Committee on a party line vote, 6-2, despite the many present in opposition to the bill. Many committees are stacked in the Democrats favor, so it is important to call EVERY committee member to express your support or opposition to legislation. The bill will be heard next in the Senate Judiciary Committee on April 7th at 1:30 pm. Please call the Senate Judiciary members and ask them to VOTE NO on SB 128!

Obama's Love Bomb Offensive

President Obama says Rudy Giuliani was wrong. He does, too, love America. That’s good enough for me. He says he’s a Christian, despite his constant love bombs for Islam, and if that’s good enough for God it’s good enough for me, too. - Wesley Pruden/Washington Times

...Mr. Obama, for reasons known only to him, reserves his most potent love bombs for Islam, perhaps in gratitude for the early education he received in Islamic schools in Indonesia. He was so blinded by gratitude that he can’t see the Islamic radicals everyone else sees clearly. No one at the White House dare call radical Islamic terrorists either “Islamic” or “radical.”

But his throwing a stink bomb at Israel just now is puzzling. “The failure to maintain the degree of mature and co-operative discretion that officials from several governments have exercised until now marks a serious change in the code of conduct,” a government source tells the Weekly Standard. “It is not wise to draw attention to [the Israeli nuclear program] because it would tend to destabilize the international order and encourage others to pursue nuclear capabilities.”

Jeb Bush expressed support through a spokesman Friday for a Senate measure discouraging federal incentives for states to adopt the Common Core education standards.

The non-binding amendment, proposed by Sen. David Vitter, R-La., and approved Thursday during a marathon voting session on the Senate budget resolution, sought to prohibit the federal government "from mandating, incentivizing or coercing states to adopt the Common Core State Standards."

Bush has faced scrutiny from conservatives for steadfastly backing the standards, in particular as he prepares to run for president. But Bush spokesman Tim Miller told the Washington Examiner Friday that the former Florida governor "applauds" Vitter's stand.

"Governor Bush applauds Senator Vitter and Republicans in the U.S. Senate for ensuring states' autonomy when it comes to adopting high standards that are right for their students," Miller said. "As Governor Bush demonstrated through his leadership in Florida, states have always been more effective at addressing policy challenges in our schools."

Ted Cruz’s Not-So-Secret Weapon: His Wife

Hillary Clinton’s courtiers would hate to admit it, but Senator Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi, is set to provide a vivid refutation of Democratic claims that Republicans pine for 1950s domesticity. - Joel Gehrke/Washington Examiner @joelmentum

...Heidi’s personal touch may help offset Cruz’s stentorian style, friends say. “When voters get to know who Heidi Cruz is, they will see an amazing, amazing woman and I think that that will help to at least counter this image of Ted that has been portrayed in the media,” Panton says.

Mrs. Cruz is no stranger to elections. She met her future husband while volunteering for George W. Bush’s presidential campaign and made an instant impression. “I’m embarrassed it took me two days to ask her out to dinner,” the senator told the New York Times. She impressed a lot of other people, too, going on from the campaign to hold multiple posts in the Bush 43 administration, culminating in her post at the National Security Council. The family dinner table isn’t a foreign-policy briefing room for the Cruzes, but her perspective certainly hasn’t diminished his understanding of international issues in the Western hemisphere, her area of specialty. “In addition to being the senator’s partner on the campaign trail, she also will actively advise him in areas for which she is an expert,” Phillips says....

Mounting chaos in the region puts the administration on the defensive. Barack Obama faces a slew of Middle East crises that some call the worst in a generation, as new chaos from Yemen to Iraq — along with deteriorating U.S.-Israeli relations — is confounding the president’s efforts to stabilize the region and strike a nuclear deal with Iran.

The meltdown has Obama officials defending their management of a region that some call impossible to control, even as critics say U.S. policies there are partly to blame for the spreading anarchy.

Latest Obama Interviewer Had On Camera Sex with a Japanese Doll for a News Story

The latest man to score an interview with President Obama, Shane Smith, has conducted some hard-hitting interviews, including one with a Japanese sex doll. - MRC TV

...The whole sordid deed is then filmed in graphic detail, from Smith choosing a doll and her hair color, to deciding on an outfit for her, popping a Viagra, taking a shower pre-coitus, and then blurred-out shots of the actual act itself.

“I’m excited, I want to f*** a cartoon,” says Smith. ◼ GRAPHIC NSFW (Not Safe For Work) Video HERE

At the end of the video, Smith says:
“We found other brothels where you can get schoolgirls who will chain themselves up to a fake train, so we can mimic groping them in a train. And we found another one where they’re in schools, doing math at the board, and we just go up and ravage them. It’s a very civilized, superior country, Japan. Lots for any fetish.”
Yet this man just conducted an 18-minute sit-down interview with the Commander in Chief, the most coveted interview of a journalist’s lifetime and one once reserved for the most hard-bitten and veteran of the White House press corps....

In the first six minutes of Smith’s interview, Obama opines at length on his climate change policies.

“You have a very sane and rational plan,” a fawning Smith says. “But we’re not acting in a sane and rational way.”

Five Years Later - #ObamaCare Penalties Begin. How the penalty works. Who is required to pay it

Monday, March 23, 2015, marks the fifth anniversary of the passage of Obamacare. Buried in its hundreds of thousands of pages is a mandate that every American must acquire and maintain qualified health insurance. Taxpayers who fail to comply and do not qualify for an exemption will be penalized. - Mike Patton/Forbes

Taxpayers who fail to comply and do not qualify for an exemption will be penalized. This penalty has been dubbed a “shared responsibility payment.” Whatever moniker you choose, this provision is sure to increase the burden on a number of individuals and families, especially those who are struggling financially.

98-1 President Obama's Budget Proposal Receives Strongest Senate Support EVER - Got 1 vote instead of 0

We often criticize President Obama but it would be wrong to report his successes however limited when they occur.

On Tuesday the Senate voted on the budget submitted by President Obama, and his submission received record support in the upper chamber of congress, they voted it down by a vote of 98-1. The only yes vote was Senator Tom Carper (D-DE)....

According to Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) including the latest vote three time in the past six the president received one vote for his budget which means this week's vote gives Obama a tie for his most successful budget presentation yet.

US Declassifies Document Revealing Israel’s Nuclear Program

Obama revenge for Netanyahu's Congress talk? 1987 report on Israel's top secret nuclear program released in unprecedented move. - Ari Yashar, Matt Wanderman, Israel National News

In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel’s nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.

But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel’s nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.
The timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came as tensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu’s March 3 address in Congress, in which he warned against the dangers of Iran’s nuclear program and how the deal being formed on that program leaves the Islamic regime with nuclear breakout capabilities.

Obama the playground taunter and his merchants of betrayal coddle Iran

Is there any doubt anymore whose side these people are on? - Charles Hurt/Washington Times

It is one thing to shrink from the fight. It is one thing to melt in terror over the unimaginable savagery of the tactics of Islamic radicals. It is one thing to become so paralyzed with fear that your knees buckle and you collapse into the bloody folds of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s skirts.

That is the choice President Obama has made, with steady guidance from Secretary of State John Kerry, who will soon assume the title as history’s greatest buffoon from former President Jimmy Carter and former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain.

These men — President Obama and Mr. Kerry — are so many fathoms out of their depth that the best they can do for civilization is to toss control of the entire Middle East into the hands of the Iranians. That really and truly is their strategy.

Let Iran figure it out, they say. Let them castrate the gays. Let them lop off the hands of petty thieves. Let them enslave little girls into lifetimes of servitude.

It is one thing to command the world’s most powerful military force with such cowardice, devoid of any convictions. It is one thing to dismiss the lives of so many innocents with such cavalierness.

But it is entirely something else — something far more despicable — to turn against your own, to betray your allies. To forsake the very people whose rights and freedoms you swore to defend and uphold....

Germanwings Pilot Was Locked Out of Cockpit Before Crash in France - New York Times

A senior military official involved in the investigation described “very smooth, very cool” conversation between the pilots during the early part of the flight from Barcelona, Spain, to Düsseldorf, Germany. Then the audio indicated that one of the pilots left the cockpit and could not re-enter.

“The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door, and there is no answer,” the investigator said. “And then he hits the door stronger, and no answer. There is never an answer.”

He said, “You can hear he is trying to smash the door down.”

While the audio seemed to give some insight into the circumstances leading to the Germanwings crash on Tuesday morning, it also left many questions unanswered.

“We don’t know yet the reason why one of the guys went out,” said the official, who requested anonymity because the investigation was continuing. “But what is sure is that at the very end of the flight, the other pilot is alone and does not open the door.”

Nothing to see here: Obamacare to cost $50K per person covered

Buried deep inside the latest CBO budget outlook report there is some shocking (by which I mean not shocking to anyone who has been paying attention) information on the effects of ObamaCare.

ou can forget about all the promises that were made by the administration and their Democrat allies during the debate… they were lying clearly inaccurate in their estimates. So how bad is it? The Daily Mail came out with the first report.
It will cost the federal government – taxpayers, that is – $50,000 for every person who gets health insurance under the Obamacare law, the Congressional Budget Office revealed on Monday.

The number comes from figures buried in a 15-page section of the nonpartisan organization’s new ten-year budget outlook.

The best-case scenario described by the CBO would result in ‘between 24 million and 27 million’ fewer Americans being uninsured in 2025, compared to the year before the Affordable Care Act took effect.

Pulling that off will cost Uncle Sam about $1.35 trillion – or $50,000 per head.

Even more corruption within Obama's administration

The Criminal Arrogance of Hillary Clinton

SPEAKING OUT: Saudi commentator: ‘He [Obama] is gambling with the future of the region’

Arab Media Lashes Out at Obama for Iran Negotiations - Washington Free Beacon

With Washington cozying up to Tehran as nuclear negotiations approach countdown stage, Arab media in the region are lashing out at the United States for jilting its Arab allies.

Unlike Israelis, who are focused on the danger of nuclear weapons in the hands of a regime calling for their country’s elimination, citizens of Arab states are concerned about Iran’s imperial ambitions. The nuclear threat is seen as a tool to further those ambitions rather than a direct threat.

Khaled Al-Dahil, a Saudi political commentator writing in the London-based daily Al-Hayat, said the Obama administration is allowing Iran and its Shiite militias to operate freely in Iraq and Syria in order to advance the signing of a nuclear agreement. “Why does Obama consider it necessary to reach such an agreement? Because his objective is to tie the Iranians’ hands for 10-15 years in hopes that by then Iran will have a new leadership and will become a different country—perhaps a democratic country with less of a desire for nuclear weapons. This perception is superficial and faulty because it is based on dreams that are more like delusions. He is gambling with the future of the region.”

Imagine if we could the tell the NSA you need a warrant to tap my phone. Imagine if we didn’t have to feel guilty of being Americans.

William Cruz - A fellow named William Tell wandered into the village and did the unthinkable. He refused to bow before the hat. - Richard Fernandez/PJMedia
Of course Cruz put it more cannily then that, but that was the message. We can continue.

“But you don’t have to imagine because I’m doing it right now. I am standing right here, committing what is accounted political suicide saying every damned thing you ever felt like saying but couldn’t. I’m on YouTube giving every bit of lip you were afraid to give for fear you might lose your job. Do you see that hat over there my friend? I’m going to knock it down. All I am asking you to do is take out your cellphones and punch in this number and by that ever so negligible act, join in the fray!”

Yippee. There’s not a few who would rise to their feet under the sting of that message and bang their palms together not out of the love of Ted Cruz, but under the impetus of shame. Shame that it took so long for someone to say what was obvious; shame that they hadn’t said it themselves.

The intellectual establishment has predictably taken the bait. Bearded so openly, they have sneered and they snorted and cast aspersions down like ordure from their high towers upon the rabble beneath. That’s exactly the expected response and they’ve only confirmed Cruz’s message. By and by the worst of these taunts will be withdrawn by canny media analysts who understand the trap as laid, but the damage is done. Ted Cruz wanted the aristocracy to show its upturned face and that, it has done. KEEP READING

Israeli Official Spills: We Knew Obama Wanted ‘Revenge’

The Times of Israel got it straight from an anonymous “senior Jerusalem official”: Obama wanted “revenge” in the wake of Netanyahu’s speech to Congress. - PJ Media

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The Times of Israel that “it’s no secret” that the Obama administration had attempted to influence the outcome of the election…
…“The White House is driven by three main motives,” the senior official said. “The first is revenge [over the Congress speech]. The second is frustration: It’s no secret that they were involved in an attempt to bring down the Netanyahu government – something that we have clear knowledge of – and failed. The third [motive] is the administration’s attempt to divert attention from the negotiations with Iran to the Palestinian issue.”
Not only do Israeli policymakers have a full understanding of Obama’s involvement in Israeli elections, they have also already reasoned their way around Obama’s potential politicking at the UN...

And are at ease portraying Obama as the hypocrite who is busy covering his tracks:
…“They come and accuse us of torpedoing negotiations even though they know that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas himself said no [to a deal], twice — once to then-secretary of state Hillary Clinton in 2011, and once to Secretary of State John Kerry last year.”
The plans of the White House and shame of American Jewish Left aren’t bothering members of an Israeli administration who have higher priorities than being #1 on Obama’s popularity list.

Obama’s Orwellian foreign policy. Up is down. Scream at Bibi, while Yemen burns.

The Orwellian Obama Presidency: Under Mr. Obama, friends are enemies, denial is wisdom, capitulation is victory. - BRET STEPHENS/Wall St. Journal

The humiliating denouement to America’s involvement in Yemen came over the weekend, when U.S. Special Forces were forced to evacuate a base from which they had operated against the local branch of al Qaeda. This is the same branch that claimed responsibility for the January attack on Charlie Hebdo and has long been considered to pose the most direct threat to Europe and the United States.

So who should Barack Obama be declaring war on in the Middle East other than the state of Israel?

There is an upside-down quality to this president’s world view. His administration is now on better terms with Iran—whose Houthi proxies, with the slogan “God is great, death to America, death to Israel, damn the Jews, power to Islam,” just deposed Yemen’s legitimate president—than it is with Israel. He claims we are winning the war against Islamic State even as the group continues to extend its reach into Libya, Yemen and Nigeria.

He treats Republicans in the Senate as an enemy when it comes to the Iranian nuclear negotiations, while treating the Russian foreign ministry as a diplomatic partner. He favors the moral legitimacy of the United Nations Security Council to that of the U.S. Congress. He is facilitating Bashar Assad’s war on his own people by targeting ISIS so the Syrian dictator can train his fire on our ostensible allies in the Free Syrian Army.

He was prepared to embrace a Muslim Brother as president of Egypt but maintains an arm’s-length relationship with his popular pro-American successor. He has no problem keeping company with Al Sharpton and tagging an American police department as comprehensively racist but is nothing if not adamant that the words “Islamic” and “terrorism” must on no account ever be conjoined. The deeper that Russian forces advance into Ukraine, the more they violate cease-fires, the weaker the Kiev government becomes, the more insistent he is that his response to Russia is working.

To adapt George Orwell’s motto for Oceania: Under Mr. Obama, friends are enemies, denial is wisdom, capitulation is victory.


Somali-born activist and writer Ayaan Hirsi Ali: Islam Is ‘Not a Religion of Peace’

“Islam, unreformed today, is not a religion of peace,” said well-known Somali-born activist and writer Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who said on ABC’s “This Week” that the Muslim religion needs reform. In the interview, host Martha Raddatz charged that Ali’s views “incite people to be anti-Muslim,” but Ali held her ground.

Ali suffered female genital mutilation (FGM) as a young girl in Somalia. She eventually escaped to Holland and participated in a documentary about the abuses that girls suffer in Muslim countries.

The documentary’s producer, Theo Van Gogh, was killed in broad daylight in Holland – the killer’s note was a threat for Ali.

Ever since, Ali has used her notoriety to shed light on what she believes are the problems with the religion of her youth. Ali has had a fatwa issued against her and travels with bodyguards at all times.
