A Special Message of Interest from Conservative Majority PAC
ONE MORE DEMOCRAT NEEDED TO
URGENT VOTE SCHEDULED TUESDAY!
NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO GIVE UP
KEEP THE PETITIONS COMING!
Demand Iran Sanctions NOW – Support
URGENT ACTION ALERT: Having quietly endorsed the Corker-Menendez bill mandating Congressional oversight of the Obama-Iran nuclear deal, minority leader-in-waiting Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York is now cranking up his public support for this legislation OPPOSED BY BARACK OBAMA.
With Schumer's active backing, this bill is ONE VOTE away from being veto-proof. Three other Democrat senators – Joe Manchin (WV), Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) and Claire McCaskill (MO) have signaled they are thinking about following Schumer… winning their votes is vital.
Loud and clear, they need to hear YOUR support for Congress to DEFY Obama's bad deal and stand with Israel!
Cluelessly, Obama is holding a self-congratulation rah-rah party with Democrats TOMORROW, coincidentally the last day to make amendments to this oversight bill – MAKE SURE IT'S TOO LATE FOR OBAMA TO STAUNCH THE BLEEDING…
"This is a very serious issue that deserves careful consideration, and I expect to have a classified briefing in the near future. I strongly believe Congress should have the right to disapprove any agreement and I support the Corker bill which would allow that to occur," Schumer wrote in an emailed statement to POLITICO.
From the Obama administration bully box, "It could potentially interfere with the ongoing negotiations," White House press secretary Josh Earnest whined, demanding Congress DO NOTHING until after the June 30 nuclear deal final deadline. BY THEN IT WILL BE TOO LATE!
Fortunately, some Democrats aren't buying it:
"The argument that the Corker bill somehow interferes with the negotiations is a complete red herring," Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) said. "I did not sign on to this bill because of an anti-diplomacy mind-set."
This legislation puts America in a stronger negotiating position – and the anti-Israel White House can't stand it!
We urgently need YOUR petitions blasting into Democrat senators' offices to win veto-proof common sense Congressional oversight before the fast-approaching April 14 Committee VOTE – TUESDAY next week!
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has promised a full Senate vote right after the Committee vote – we need YOUR help derailing Obama's bad deal that empowers Iran while hanging our ally, Israel, out to dry.
BLAST FAX YOUR SUPPORT FOR A STRONG DEAL – DEMAND SANCTIONS AND CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT NOW…
CAPITOL HILL AND HOME DISTRICT OFFICES MUST HEAR YOU!
Within hours of announcing a nuclear agreement with the mad mullahs of the IRI, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif is already accusing the Obama administration of LYING on a fact sheet released to the media and Congress outlining the framework.
Disputing the Obama administration talking points, Zarif told reporters that part of the deal includes Iran being allowed to continue enriching uranium, a necessary element for a nuclear bomb, along with other key components! Zarif also said all nuclear-related sanctions would be lifted as soon as a final deal is reached.
As a coup de grâce to any meaningful enforcement, Iran would not be obligated to shut down ANY of its current nuclear installations!
It gets worse. According to Zarif, Iran will also be allowed to sell "enriched uranium" to the rest of the worlds and will be "hopefully making some money."
It certainly sounds like a win-win for Iran while our ally Israel – and the world including America – gets nothing but a nuclear arms race in the Middle East, maybe even World War III.
This deal must be stopped.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it clear to Barack Obama that this current "deal" would threaten the survival of Israel and proposed instead an alternative that would STOP IRAN FROM GOING NUCLEAR. Obama continues to maintain that this deal is "progress" because it provides "hope" that Iran will be pushed one year from a nuclear weapon rather than the current status of two or three months away!
The closest worldwide sponsor of terrorism Iran should be to a nuclear weapon is NEVER.
Obama is literally blowing up the opportunity to DISARM the Ayatollahs of nuclear capability by saying that the only alternative to this deal is WAR with Iran. That postulation begs the question, would you rather risk war with no nukes Iran NOW or war with nuclear Iran in ten years? I KNOW MY ANSWER!
But after years of negotiating face to face with tyrants, I know it need NOT be war, if the United States showed consistency and resolve against Iran's nuclear ambitions. If our world is NOT to see conflict in the Middle East dangerously escalate Congress MUST exercise proper Constitutional checks and balances over the Oval Office's New World Order ambitions!
Obama's failing foreign policy in the region is forcing Arab states and Israel to align against Iran – and soon, against the Obama-led United States? – in order to hold the Ayatollahs' nuclear ambitions in check.
This is a geopolitical disaster, UNLESS we continue to RESIST and FORCE CONGRESS TO STOP OBAMA'S BAD DEAL!
The final Iran deal isn't expected until June giving us TWO MONTHS to fight.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is set to vote April 14th on S. 615 the Menendez-Corker bill calling for Senate review of any Iran agreement. Menendez is now facing conveniently-timed federal charges of corruption, which could jeopardize getting this bill past committee as the next ranking Democrat, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) opposes pre-emptive action on sanctions before the final June 30 deadline.
"There is growing bipartisan support for Congressional review of the nuclear deal, and I am confident of a strong vote on the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act when the Senate Foreign Relations Committee takes it up on April 14," Corker said in a statement following the deal's announcement. He also warned Obama not to bypass Congress taking the deal to the United Nations Security Council.
"If a final agreement is reached, the American people, through their elected representatives, must have the opportunity to weigh in to ensure the deal truly can eliminate the threat of Iran's nuclear program and hold the regime accountable," Corker said.
"If Congress kills this deal … then it's the United States that will be blamed for the failure of diplomacy," Obama said. It is disturbing, to say the least, that Obama does not express concern for the outcome facing Israel and America, if this deal itself fails. Perhaps Obama will be blamed for that, but it will be too late for America AND our allies!
The Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act would mandate Obama submit the "deal" to Congress and prohibit him from lifting (or not enforcing) Congressional sanctions for 60 days, and require him to submit reports on Iran's compliance every 90 days.
SUCH CONDITIONS WOULD LIKELY BE A DEAL-BREAKER FOR IRAN – AND SO WOULD SANCTIONS NOW!
THIS FIGHT CANNOT WAIT UNTIL CONGRESS RETURNS TO WASHINGTON.
WE NEED YOUR URGENT HELP BLAST FAXING ALL 100 SENATORS ON CAPITOL HILL AND IN HOME DISTRICT OFFICES DEMANDING THEY STAND WITH ISRAEL! STOP A NUCLEAR ARMS RACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST – THE STAKES COULDN'T BE HIGHER.
House Speaker John Boehner told CNN's "State of the Union" March 26 that he has "serious doubts" that the Obama administration can produce a nuclear deal with Iran… and if no deal is reached, Congress will move to impose new sanctions.
"Let's wait and see if there's an agreement," the Ohio Republican told CNN's "State of the Union." "I have got serious doubts. I had serious doubts over the last year whether there could be an agreement, and I still have serious doubts."
It's NOT about Obama getting an agreement – of course Obama can get an agreement; a BAD ONE! It's all about what Obama CONCEDES to Iran in that agreement – what Obama is willing to surrender to Iran! From what has been leaked thus far, GOING NUCLEAR and DESTROYING ISRAEL is not off the bargaining table! Congress MUST ACT NOW – before it is too late…
From the reports thus far, the Obama administration appears ready to agree to virtually ANYTHING that will produce a "deal."
The negotiators are placating the militant Mullahs with a craven agreement that Israel's reelected Prime Minister and PATRIOT Bibi Netanyahu warns is worse than feared AND predicted as Iran systematically moves to conquer the Middle East.
"After the Beirut-Damascus-Baghdad axis, Iran is maneuvering from the south to take over the entire Middle East," the Times of Israel reports Netanyahu said at a cabinet meeting. "The Iran-Lausanne-Yemen axis is dangerous for mankind and must be stopped."
Netanyahu said he has spoken with the U.S. Senate and "conveyed our serious concern regarding the arrangement with Iran at the nuclear talks. This agreement confirms all our fears and exceeds them."
The U.S. Congress needs to move with sanctions and end this dangerous travesy NOW.
"While [world powers] convene to sign this deal, Iran's proxies in Yemen are conquering large swaths of land in an effort to overtake the Bab al-Mandab straits, so that they can change the balance of power in shipping oil," Bibi reportedly said.
Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon called Kerry's TBA handiwork "a very bad deal"… that enabling Iran to reach a nuclear threshold "would be nothing less than a tragedy for the moderate regimes in the Middle East and the entire Western world."
"You don't need to be an intelligence officer to see Iran is lying barefacedly, and is today the greatest danger to the stability of the Middle East," he said.
'DEAL FIRST, SANCTIONS LATER' JOHN BOEHNER APPARENTLY DID NOT GET THE MESSAGE! Evading the responsibility and blame for momentous events is NOT governing – Boehner AND McConnell are both unfit for their high offices of trust! The Congress MUST ACT NOW!
USE YOUR PETITIONS TO COMPEL HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER TO MOVE ON NEW SANCTIONS IMMEDIATELY!
NO NUKE DEAL IS BETTER THAN A 'BAD' ONE!
Israel National News is making headlines with a report that the Obama administration in February stealthily declassified a Department of Defense top secret document detailing Israel's nuclear program – in strategic advance of unveiling their BAD deal that empowers Islamic Iran with nukes!
Israel's nuclear capability had been kept secret for more than 25 years to help avoid a regional nuclear arms race until U.S. "journalist" and rabid anti-Semite Grant Smith petitioned and sued the U.S. government for disclosure.
Smith is director of an anti-Israel front called IRmep and associated with the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, "the guidebook to the Arabist lobby in the United States… that specializes in defaming Israel," according to scholar Jonathan Tobin.
Smith gained a court order for the Pentagon to respond about Israel nuclear capacity… giving Obama a pretext to stage-manage a full LEAK! Because of course – adhering to legal, prudent security limits is beyond Barack Obama when he can instead BETRAY ISRAEL!
Is it any wonder this signing deadline was set right as Congress goes out on a two-week recess!
The AP reports part of the "deal" will allow Iran to run centrifuges at a fortified, underground site. They quote one senior U.S. official as saying part of the goal has been to have the Fordow underground bunker "converted so it's not being used to enrich uranium." The site is, according to the AP, "possibly impervious" to air attack.
But the deal apparently still allows Iran to keep intact techonology to enrich uranium!
Mid-April is too long to wait for Congress to vote on sanctions against Iran…
WE NEED CONGRESSIONAL INTERVENTION AND SANCTIONS NOW!
The devil is in the details of the deal, many of which already outlined in the "framework" are deeply disturbing. U.S. negotiators have given up ground on demands that Iran be forced to disclose the full range of its nuclear activities at the outset of a nuclear deal, a concession experts say would gut the verification the Obama administration has vowed would stand as the crux of a deal with Iran.
Until recently, the Obama administration had maintained that it would guarantee oversight on Tehran's program well into the future, and that it would take the necessary steps to ensure that oversight would be effective. The issue has now emerged as a key sticking point in the talks – and ultimate capitulation by Obama appears likely.
Concern also arises with U.S. concessions allowing Iran to continue running nuclear centrifuges at the Fordow underground site once suspected of housing illicit activities.
This type of concession would allow Iran to continue work related to its nuclear weapons program, even under the eye of international inspectors. If Iran removes inspectors – as it has in the past – it would be left with a nuclear infrastructure immune from a strike by Western forces.
"Once again, in the face of Iran's intransigence, the U.S. is leading an effort to cave even more toward Iran – this time by whitewashing Tehran's decades of lying about nuclear weapons work and current lack of cooperation with the [International Atomic Energy Agency]," said one Western source briefed on the talks but who was not permitted to speak on record.
Amid a flurry of communiqués and press conferences touting "progress" and "break-through" with Iran on reaching a nuclear deal in the so-called "framework" comes confirmation that Iran's military leaders have an official, comprehensive strategic "playbook" for ATTACKING the United States via nuclear EMP, an electromagnetic pulse explosion designed to obliterate our nationwide electrical infrastructure and grid supply – leaving us literally powerless.
Yet Obama has REMOVED Iran from the official U.S. list of terrorist states, and is proceeding at break-neck speed to close his "deal" with the Ayatollahs! And BITTER over critic Bibi Netanyahu's re-election as Israeli Prime Minister, Barack Obama – ally of Iran – is THREATENING SANCTIONS AGAINST ISRAEL!
If Netanyahu does not SUBMIT to Obama's indefensible "two state solution" negotiated with TERRORISTS, the U.S. just might ABANDON Israel at the U.N. and fail to oppose Palestinian attacks there against the Jewish State.
These include dragging Israel before the International Criminal Court (ICC) for trumped-up "crimes against humanity" for DEFENDING against Hamas and Hezbollah terror attacks last summer! Worse, Obama is "edging closer" to abandoning years of blocking U.N. Security Council resolutions seeking to ILLICITLY IMPOSE so-called peace talks and a multi-lateral mandate for creation of an Islamic-Arab Palestinian State – in total violation of Resolution 242 and decades of U.S. diplomatic commitments.
Congress MUST STOP Obama…
As Obama moves against Israel, an AP exclusive reveals Obama's "bad deal" gives 6,000 centrifuges to IRAN per a leaked draft of the nuke agreement with the mad mullahs! And as an added "bonus," certain parts of a critical U.N. arms embargo against Iran will be lifted!
This deal started at an original ceiling of 500 to 1,500 centrifuges – one year ago, U.S. officials said maybe 4,000 could become a compromise if all else was agreed to… now look at the reckless numbers Obama is capitulating to just to get a deal!
Obama won't concede – it's NOT OK for Iran to bomb Israel TODAY, in TEN YEARS or in TWENTY!
And it is NOT just Netanyahu's landslide victory in Israel or specifics of the nuclear deal that have Obama pushing and shoving; Team Obama is all in a snit here at home over political "defiance" of Great Leader in Congress regarding his entire Middle Eastern "statesmanship" – such as it is.
The Obama administration is frothing at the mouth over dissenting Senate Republicans' open letter to Iran – with Senators being called "traitors" by top Democrats. Further, the GOP was sent a letter from Obama through his chief of staff Denis McDonough threatening veto of legislation that restricts his deal making, and effectually ordering the Senate to "stand down" and let OBAMA have a completely clear field for negotiating with "Death to America" Iran over its nuclear program.
McDonough's angry letter also indicated Obama intends to seek U.N. Security Council approval of whatever deal he makes – as if the U.S. should be bound by the notoriously anti-Israel United Nations in its foreign policy!
Forget American sovereignty, with nuke negotiations now JAMMED into his arbitrary end-of-March deadline, Obama may well be heeding Iran's latest advice and bypassing the U.S. Congress after all!However, Obama and his media lapdogs – AND IRAN – will have to ignore the one "minor" inconvenience that the recent "treasonous" and "inflammatory" open letter underscored – THE U.S. CONSTITUTION DOESN'T ALLOW IT!
As the Cotton letter explained, our Constitution REQUIRES congressional approval over international agreements in order for them to be legally binding on the United States, no matter how badly the "international community" wants it…
In a recent interview, Iran's foreign minister Javad Zarif suggested that the Obama administration just maneuver around the U.S. Senate, and seek approval of a nuclear deal with Iran not from the United States Congress but from the UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL – the U.S., China, France, Russia, and the United Kingdom.
Zarif himself pointed out how such an "international agreement" ostensibly authorized through the U.N. would be binding on the current U.S. government and on future U.S. governments because of our U.S.-U.N. obligations. What's really in the works is a plan to establish the terms of such "international agreements" as the status quo… and then PRESSURE the United States to abide by them after the fact ABSENT Constitutional ratification. Thus, separation of powers with the Senate's advice and consent role would become only an empty "technicality" lacking substance or imperative as our nation relies upon a tyrannical Executive and the United Nations to enter into entangling alliances.
This is a dangerous game Barack Obama is playing – destroying Constitutional balance and acting despotically, for the sake of his overweening pride in making a BAD DEAL with Iran!
"The United Nations has no authority whatsoever to bind the United States of America," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told the Daily Beast. "If President Obama attempts to end-run the Constitution by enlisting the United Nations to enforce an Iran deal that sets the stage for Iran to acquire nuclear weapons, it would be both profoundly dangerous to the national security of the United States and our allies, and also patently unconstitutional."
Barack Obama THINKS he can get away with going after Bibi in the Israeli elections and he THINKS he can get away with deferring to the anti-Semitic U.N. to HELP IRAN IMPERIL ISRAEL.
Cruz is a powerful voice raised against Obama's duplicity and damage. BUT WE NEED THE ENTIRE SENATE TO RESIST WITH SANCTIONS NOW – before Obama can sell out our sovereignty and our ally along with it!
The vigorous momentum of resistance to Iran's terror state has been sparked in Congress – and YOUR continued support remains vital to its success!
Thank God for the clarion call of truth! Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu powerfully, bluntly addressed a joint session of Congress on the threat posed to the West by Islamic supremacists and a nuclear-capable Iran. And patriots of freedom in the Senate have responded. Already facing furious attack denouncing them at TRAITORS for crossing Obama, they need YOUR urgent support!
Some 47 Republican Senators, led by Iraq war veteran Tom Cotton of Arkansas, were inspired to follow this broadside of truth with an open letter to Iran's top leaders, letting them know that any nuclear deal they reach with the United States would be "nothing more than an executive agreement" with the Obama administration.
Obama partisans and useful idiots of subversion, seeking to purvey the lie that the world confronts today "normal" geopolitical threats and that America should be docilely submitting to Obama's betrayals and conducting political "business as usual" profess outrage over Sen. Cotton's initiative of honesty. His opponents’ histrionics ape Nancy Pelosi absurd claim the Netanyahu speech reduced her to "tears" of outrage that Bibi had the audacity to bring such clarity to Obama's "bad deal" affording Iran the capability to develop a nuclear weapon WITHIN A YEAR.
The Senate open letter is brief and to the point:
"The greatest danger facing our world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons," Netanyahu said. "That is exactly what could happen if the deal being negotiated is accepted by Iran. That deal would not prevent Iran developing nuclear weapons. It would all but guarantee that Iran gets those weapons, lots of them."
We SAW the reaction to Netanyahu's address from a galvanized Congress, from standing ovations, to cheers, to the emotional petulance of Pelosi's sniveling…
TODAY, Congress needs to TAKE ACTION and STAND WITH ISRAEL – BY ENACTING NEW SANCTIONS AGAINST IRAN!
To put it mildly, Obama's long-promised "opportunity" for Iran means bringing the world to nuclear brinksmanship… and the Obama administration doggedly maintains that there is NO OTHER OPTION but to "negotiate" and deal-make with the blood-drenched Ayatollahs and HOPE we have bought the world enough time to REACT should Tehran CHEAT – which we already know they are doing, not because of ideological bias, but because of UNITED NATIONS reports.
Obama, who LOVES to delegate authority and oversight to the U.N. on every other occasion, is IGNORING these U.N. reports with all the starry-eyed hope, self-confidence and naiveté of a freshman political science major!
So, Obama FALSELY told reporters that Netanyahu "didn't offer any viable alternatives" – UNTRUE, as the U.S. Senate and House overwhelmingly recognized.
Of course, Netanyahu did – with strenuous sanctions in the forefront! But it is not Netanyahu's responsibility to direct U.S. foreign policy; it is OUR PRESIDENT'S… and our president is FAILING.
Fortunately, it is Congress' duty to abide by the WILL OF THE PEOPLE and to advise and check the Executive Branch when it comes to entering foreign agreements. WE MUST KEEP REINFORCING BIBI'S WARNING, as the Obama propaganda machine is in FULL CRY against it.
Because what Netanyahu is telling this president of the United States is that HIS – OBAMA'S – policy is putting our ally Israel and America at a CROSSROADS in our relationship, while putting the world at large in jeopardy by empowering an aggressive and militant Iran.
While lamenting the lack of an "agreeable" alternative to the Obama plan in Netanyahu's speech, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California delicately criticized Team Obama's 10-year Iranian "deal"… as not long enough in its limitations on Iran's nuclear capabilities.
"One of the things that I've seen in my lifetime is time goes by very fast, and 10 years is not a very long time," said Feinstein.
Other Democrat House Members beclowned themselves serving as Obama's whining surrogates – like Pelosi – leveling nasty middle school-style criticisms… which makes sense given Obama's elections were more or less on a par with popularity contests of the "coolest" candidate.
Republicans AND Democrats on Capitol Hill know there is FAR more at stake here than Obama's EGO – but we cannot risk Congress failing to STAND WITH ISRAEL – THEY MUST HEAR FROM YOU!
Given the destructiveness of Obama's foreign and military policies, it is little wonder that Brigadier General Hossein Salami, Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps' air force commander, has been QUOTED by an Iranian news agency as saying that Iran is ready to PULL THE TRIGGER TO DESTROY ISRAEL…
"Islam has given us this wish, capacity and power to destroy the Zionist regime so that our hands will remain on the trigger…"
And all that holds Iran's military back, they say, is that they AWAIT THE ORDERS TO DO SO!
Times of Israel reminds us that these trigger threats came A DAY after Netanyahu presented to the press a shipment of Iranian arms on their way to terror groups in Gaza that were instead intercepted by Israeli forces at sea.
Somehow, we cannot recall hearing ANY cries of condemnation coming from the Obama faction – not the State Dept., not Kerry, not even from U.N. Secretary Power or NSA Rice – Israel-haters all, of course…
Washington MUST hear from YOU. Congress CANNOT allow the Obama administration to abandon Israel to the Islamists, be they the Palestinian Authority or Iran!
WE MUST DEMAND NEW SANCTIONS NOW AGAINST IRAN, S. 1881 FOR A NUCLEAR WEAPON FREE IRAN AND S. 615 FORCING TRANSPARENCY AND CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT IN ANY OBAMA ADMIN DEAL-MAKING WITH IRAN!
Remember, as foreign affairs expert Caroline Glick has noted, Obama is:
Another reason Israel is imperiled is because the U.S. government under Obama, through security leaks and other breaches, has maliciously crippled Israel's covert operations against Iran's nuclear program – leaving few options other than military strikes against Iran's reactors and nuclear facilities.
Pro-Israel Republicans and Democrats in the House and the Senate MUST unite in defense of American national security and the Jewish state!
Whatever the global politics of this Iranian "deal" may finally prove to be, one cold, hard fact of American politics MUST be confronted. In February 2010, 48 percent of Democrats supported Israel and 70 percent of Republicans did. Those figures have only worsened since.
Obama is destroying his old party, destroying America's proud and noble consensus in support of Israel, leading our country to ruin, and imperiling the only democracy in the Middle East as he pursues policies that bring the region closer and closer to catastrophic, perhaps even nuclear war.
There is a liberal majority of the Democrat party that no longer stands foursquare with Israel – and under the "leadership" of Obama, the betrayal of Israel is becoming party policy.
IT MUST NOT BECOME AMERICA'S POLICY.
CONGRESS MUST NOT DISHONOR OUR NATION BY BESMIRCHING OUR RIGHTFUL HISTORY OF SUPPORT FOR THE JEWISH STATE.
SEN. TOM COTTON AND HIS COLLEAGUES ARE RIGHT. THEY NEED YOUR SUPPORT NOW!
AMERICA STANDS WITH ISRAEL. PLEASE PRAY AND ACT FOR THE SAFETY OF ISRAEL…
