Article two, section two of our Constitution states: “The President… shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur….”. I am sure you noticed the part about consent of the Senate. Yet a deal with Iran without the Senate that John Kerry is working on via Obama’s instructions, if made, would be “None Binding”. Those are not my words, they are John Kerry’s words. Thus, validating the letter the GOP sent to Iran.
A “None Binding” deal with Iran in Iran’s eyes would therefore not be valid for even them to honor. They could easily agree to any deal Obama throws at them, and later disregard the deal knowing it did not conform to our Constitution. Iran has already stated that the ten year buffer would not be adhered to. It makes me wonder if Obama himself knows that a none binding deal would place into the hands of Iran a nuclear bomb faster than a binding deal. One would have to think that our President would want the best deal possible. To make a none binding deal would be the worse deal possible. Is this another form of appeasement?
Aside from the deal itself, the letter the GOP sent has been met via the liberal media and Democrats (and even several Republicans) as illegal, treasonous, down right unethical! Chris Mathews spewing the most critical opinions on this matter on MSNBC. Yet Chris Mathews worked for Tip O’Neil during a time Tip, and the Democratic Congress did the same thing in 1984 in a letter to Ortega in Nicaragua. More recently, Nancy Pelosi in 2007 did not just write a letter, that would be too easy, she made a trip to privately speak with Assad in Syria undermining Bush’s policies. Democrats have done this, but it only becomes offensive when Republicans do this.
The media of course will not report on Democrats doing the same thing. That would go against their agenda and they are not about to throw themselves or their media ideology under the bus. What the media, liberals, and Democrats don’t seem to realize is that the offense is not the GOP’s letter, but the offense is Obama doing an end run around our Constitution. Once again he is being a one man show. They called Nixon an Imperial President. Obama makes Nixon look like a Boy Scout in comparison. Obama has made Congress obsolete except for funding everything he wants thanks to Boehner and McConnell… and why was it we elected all these Republicans to take back Congress? They are doing everything a Democratic Congress would do for Obama. How ironic that Democrats stated they would support Boehner against losing his Speakership. If a Democrat supports you, you are not a conservative.
A Democrat in Congress should be just as upset as a Republican in Congress that the President has changed the way Congress is set up to run by our Constitution. Yet, they allow their own demise (Procedurally that is). This is not a Democrat or Republican issue to choose sides on. This is a Constitutional issue. If our founding document is to be ignored, it is no longer worth the paper it is written on (although valuable, just a form of speech).
Obamacare, Amnesty for illegal aliens (called by the administration as Citizens in waiting), a deal with Iran, all done at the peril of our Constitution. If a Republican did the same thing, I would object just as strongly. Yet, Democrats just placate the events. Will the President do more against our Constitution in the time he has left? I believe yes he will. He also has set a precedent for other Democratic elected future presidents to also ignore our Constitution. Without accountability there is no need for other Democratic Presidents to adhere to that wonderful Document.
Iran will have nuclear weapons. All because the President does not respect our Constitution. Appease the enemy, criticize our friend Israel. The world is truly upside down. This is a failed President, yet I am amazed how the left sees him as the best President ever. Perhaps Gruber was right. The stupid American voter elected him, and are blind to his follies. How can we turn this around? Can we turn this around? With the media against common sense reporting, being biased to the extreme radical left, the people of our land growing more liberal every day and with Common Core indoctrinating them to grow up as liberals, with newly amnesty immigrants possibly voting, and let us not forget the overwhelmingly Democratic voter fraud, it looks bleak.
Let us pray that a Conservative is nominated and wins in 2016. If not, I do not believe we can salvage America. As they say in TV land… America may have jumped the shark. It is up to you, yes you, to be a part of the solution. God Bless America.
