    Former Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) said that Congress is considering the creation of an autonomous region in Iraq to protect Christians and Yazidis from persecution by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and criticized the State Department's lack of involvement in the ongoing discussions. "There are discussions and there will be a resolution introduced in the House, I believe, to set up an into-the-plains, basically a protectorate, whereby Christians, Yazidis and other minorities [will be protected]," Wolf said at an event last week at the National Press Club in Washington. However, Nina Shea, director of the Hudson Institute's...

    Washington is not doing nearly enough to stop Chinese hackers who reportedly broke into the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) computer system in September from stealing critical information from U.S. government agencies and American businesses, says Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA). “They have a more sophisticated spying apparatus than the KGB had,” Wolf told CNSNews.com. “We’re losing jobs, technology, everything is leaving. It’s like they’re coming in and literally taking whatever they want to take. And so sometimes you find out about it and sometimes you don’t, but there needs to be a coordinated effort [to stop them],” Wolf continued....
  • 27 Christians in Saudi Arabia Arrested for Using House As a Church

    09/14/2014 9:18:19 PM PDT · by GonzoII · 22 replies
    Saudi authorities have swooped on a house in the eastern province city of Khafji, on the border with Kuwait, and arrested 27 people for using the premises as church last week. Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (Haia) also confiscated copies of the Bible and various musical instruments from the people during the raid. The swoop was prompted by a tip from a citizen, reported the English-language newspaper Saudi Gazette. Those arrested on September 5 were of various Asian nationalities, including women and children, the newspaper reported. "A citizen reported suspicious activities in...

    According to the U.N., between 35,000 and 50,000 fled to nearby Mount Sinjar and other areas, "reportedly surrounded by ISIS armed elements" and lacking water and other aid. The Washington Post detailed dire circumstances, reporting Thursday that thousands of families hiding on Mount Sinjar are desperate for help and that Iraqi government airdrops of aid are not sufficient. According to the Post, some water bottles also cracked open during the drop. Reuters reported Thursday that a rescue is underway, and some of the thousands trapped on the mountain have been brought to safety. But Wolf, in his letter to the...

    As Iraq’s biggest Christian town fell to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) slammed President Obama Thursday for “doing nothing” in response to the atrocities being committed against religious minorities in Iraq, saying it was evident his past assertions on preventing genocide were hollow.Pope Francis added his voice Thursday to appeals for urgent international intervention to help hundreds of thousands of religious minority civilians fleeing ahead of the jihadist advance.The fall of the Christian town of Qaraqosh (also known as Bakhdida) 20 miles from Mosul, reportedly prompted as many as 100,000 people to...

Boehner Speaker of the House U.S. House of Representatives H-232 The Capitol Dear Mr. Speaker: Yesterday, the government watchdog group Judicial Watch released a new set of documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request directly tying senior White House officials to inaccurate messaging about the deadly terror attacks in Benghazi.

    A newly released “smoking gun” Benghazi email – which was improbably obtained under the Freedom of Information Act and not via the numerous but uncoordinated congressional investigations into the issue – underscores the need for a special committee to investigate the matter, Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) said in a new letter. “Yesterday, the government watchdog group Judicial Watch released a new set of documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request directly tying senior White House officials to inaccurate messaging about the deadly terror attacks in Benghazi,” Wolf wrote in a letter to Speaker John Boehner.

    What in another year might have been a routine hearing about NASA’s annual budget request turned into a heated, and sometimes partisan, exchange about the agency’s internal security practices and the broad state of the U.S. human spaceflight program. In theory, the purpose of the April 8 hearing of the House Appropriations, commerce, justice, science subcommittee was to allow lawmakers charged with writing NASA’s 2015 appropriation to ask questions about the roughly $17.5 billion budget request the agency released in March. In practice, the hearing was a double feature that paired a review of security practices at NASA field centers,...

    Persecuted and Forgotten infographic. Credit: Aid to the Church in Need. Washington D.C., Apr 2, 2014 / 04:32 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) has called on President Barack Obama to follow up on his meeting with Pope Francis by backing the creation of a special envoy for religious minorities in the Middle East and south central Asia. “I urge you to put your words into action, lest inaction be perceived as indifference,” Wolf wrote in a March 27 letter to Obama. “The scope of religious persecution around the world, but especially in the Middle East is gravely concerning,...

    American Spectator ^ | March 2019 issue | Jed Babbin and R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.
    SNIPSoon after the attacks, Virginia Congressman Frank Wolf introduced HR-36, a bill to create a House Select Committee to investigate the Benghazi attacks. Under Wolf’s bill, the special committee would have subpoena power and could force the issue of testimony and access to documents. If it did, we might yet see Obama exercise Executive Privilege just as he did in the “Fast and Furious” scandal. The bill has 177 sponsors, almost enough to pass the House today. The only problem is that House Speaker John Boehner won’t allow the bill to come to the floor. He has repeatedly blocked it...

    North Carolina Rep. Mike McIntyre and New York Rep. Carolyn McCarthy will not seek reelection this year, according to multiple Democratic sources familiar with their plans – marking a blow to Democratic efforts to win control of the House. The 57-year-old McIntyre, who was elected in 1996 to the Wilmington-area congressional seat, narrowly defeated Republican state Sen. David Rouzer in 2012 and was poised to face him in a 2014 rematch. His retirement from the heavily Republican district will further thin the ranks of Blue Dog Democrats. It comes less than a month after another Blue Dog, Utah Rep. Jim...

    I wouldn't volunteer to be Phil Robertson's speechwriter. He chooses his words too carelessly. But with Christmas arriving, it's worth pausing a moment to consider two other faces of Christianity today. Many who are hostile to religion are eager to portray the "Duck Dynasty" star's comments about homosexuality as the essence of Christianity. Because the Bible teaches that homosexuality is a sin akin to adultery, the argument goes, the Bible is clearly bigoted, and those who quote the relevant verses are morally objectionable as well. Some of us who were sorry to see the idea of sin itself go out...

    The attacks have begun. The Republican establishment in the U.S.A. has now actually started the shooting war in the 2014 primary elections they have been threatening against conservative candidates for Congress. “Hopefully we’ll go into eight to 10 races and beat the snot out of them,” said former Rep. Steve LaTourette of Ohio. His new political group, Defending Main Street, plans to raise $8 million to defeat tea-party candidates and elect moderate Republicans instead. “We’re going to be very aggressive and we’re going to get in their faces.” LaTourette was a close ally of moderate Republican Speaker John Boehner in...

You’re not going to transfer prisoners at Guantanamo Bay to the U.S. Period,” Wolf said in a statement to CNSNews.com. …

    On a day when the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a report accusing its critics of bigotry, a Justice Department investigation reminds the public why CAIR does not merit the public's trust. Inspector General Michael Horowitz found a series of incidents in which FBI field offices knowingly engaged in outreach activity with CAIR despite a 2008 policy banning non-investigative cooperation with the Islamist group. Only (a summary) of the report has been released publicly. The rest is considered classified, but has been made available to Congress. The ban on interactions with CAIR, (first reported) by the Investigative Project on...

    Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) pulled out a Sharpie marker and wrote in big block letters at the bottom of a letter: ”THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. THE FBI MUST COMPLY WITH THE LAW.” The letter was addressed to FBI Director James Comey: Wolf was referring to the FBI’s violation of the ban on cooperation with the unindicted co-conspirator terrorist organization CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), according to a just-released DOJ Inspector General report. CAIR was determined to be related to the web of terrorist financing during the Holy Land Foundation trials in Dallas, a trial which resulted in guilty verdicts. Afterwards,...

    A CIA employee who refused to sign a non-disclosure agreement barring him from discussing the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, has been suspended as a result and forced to hire legal counsel, according to a top House lawmaker. Rep. Frank Wolf (R., Va.) revealed at an event on Monday that his office was anonymously informed about the CIA employee, who is purportedly facing an internal backlash after refusing to sign a legal document barring him from publicly or privately discussing events surrounding the Benghazi attack. The revelation comes about a month after several media outlets reported that...
