Barack Obama is happy. He now has 41 Democrat U.S. Senators lined up to support his Iran nuclear deal. Not only does this make overturning a veto impossible, but even questions whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will even bother having a vote to reject the proposal. Meanwhile, in Washington today, a rally against the Iran nuke deal is being held. Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin and even Glenn Beck will speak at the event. Overseas, Iran′s ′Supreme Leader′, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was so pleased that 41 Democrat senators will now go along with Obama and allow Iran to build a nuclear weapon that the Ayatollah tweeted on Twitter, ″you will not see [Israel] next 25 years.″
This is a sad day, indeed. It would be very easy to blame it all on Obama, but I cannot. John Boehner and Mitch McConnell share a considerable amount with King Bozo. Especially McConnell. By allowing Obama to go through with this deal without a proper, Constitutional vote, requiring a two-thirds majority for approval, McConnell has condemned the nation of Israel. The deal will not avoid war but make it far more likely. Why anyone would think that this will increase peace in the region is just simply batty.
Even most of the Democrat senators who say they will back the deal admit that it is a bad deal. Iran will have a 24-day notice before an inspection. On top of that, the Iranians will inspect themselves, providing teams from the I.A.E.A. with soil and air samples the Iranians will collect. Not all facilities are even subject to an inspection. Nor are there any restrictions on developing technologies for building a weapon or a delivery system. All the while, Iran gets back some $150 Billion dollars worth of assets to spend on building a weapon, or funding terrorism, or any other trouble they wish.
Some will argue that in this day and age, with political divisions being what they are, that no treaty could ever pass the Constitutional requirement of a two-thirds majority vote in the Senate. There is a good reason for that. If a treaty is not good enough, then it does not deserve to be approved. Public opinion polls show that about 70% of Americans think this is a bad deal. Thanks to Mitch McConnell, and to a lesser extent John Boehner, Barack Obama will now have his Iran nuclear deal. There is nothing now in the way to block it. Even though some will try with today′s rally in Washington. Those 41 Democrat senators must be on some darn good drugs if they can sleep at night, knowing that they just handed Iran a match to light the fuse to destroy Israel.
