Series of N.S.C. meetings re sanctions on Soviets, what to do with 3000 jailed Cubans Castro infiltrated with the Mariel refugees. These have criminal records & history of mental problems. They are truly violent and were evidently released from prison & hospitals in Cuba just to be dumped on us. A judge threatens to release them from our jails & turn them loose on society. The problem—as yet unsolved is how to return them. Richard Viguery held press conference along with John Lofton and blasted me as not a true onservative—made me wonder what my reception would be at the Conservative Dinner. I needn’t have worried—it was a love fest. Evidently R.V. & J.L. dont speak for the rank & file conservatives. Speech was well received.
