Obama The Trojan Horse: Facilitating National Suicide

TrojanObama

The Muslim Apologist/Race Agitator/Marxist Protagonist/Caliphate Enabler/Iranian Nuke Pusher and Defacto Fascist Dictator in the White House Will continue to import an Islamic Army into the U.S even after the massacre in France by ISIS.

Think the idea of importing tens of thousand of Syrian “Refugees” unwise after the Paris Attacks?

Obama says you are a racist, unAmerican and the very idea to restrict or ban the refugee resettlement, shameful.

OBAMA: ‘UN-AMERICAN’ NOT TO TAKE IN MORE MUSLIM REFUGEES

Anyone with a shred of common sense can clearly see that Obama is simply a Trojan Horse for both Islam and Marxist Fascism.  He is an agitator for chaos.  He is the enabler of our national annihilation.

Let’s look at the dots.

• Against all advisement and common sense, Obama authorized a “deal” on his own authority, that creates a pathway for Iran to develop nukes.

• Obama refuses to use the word Islam in context of anything that might be negative.  Jihad attacks with screams of ‘Allu Ackbar” are deliberately ignored as having been perpetrated by Muslims.  Obama continues to refers to them as ‘random acts of violence by extremists’ .

• Even after the Paris attacks, when the Jihadists were proclaiming they were from Syria and with ISIS, Obama will still bring tens if not hundreds of thousands of those same military aged  ‘refugees’ here for resettlement inside the US.

• Obama goes on a rant against those who demand a stop to his refugee resettlement or only Syrian Christians be admitted and declares that to be ‘racist’ and ‘Discriminatory’.

• Like Europe, American borders no longer exist.  Obama has been, on his own authority – importing millions of South American and Mexican squatters into the country.  They are immediately put on welfare and Obamacare.  Now he intends to do the same with Muslim refugees, and relocate them throughout the country.

It makes no difference to him that the Paris Jihadists were part of ‘Syrian refugees’

OBAMA: WE ‘STAND SHOULDER TO SHOULDER’ WITH TURKEY, EUROPE TO IMPORT SYRIAN REFUGEES

Obama said that Americans should still take Syrian refugees even after reports that at least one man linked to the Paris attacks was smuggled in as a refugee.

Obama said, “The United States the largest provider of humanitarian assistance stands shoulder to shoulder with Turkey, Europe and others in trying to help those who need help right now even as we hope to reduce the flow of migrants because of the situation inside Syria.”

A situation HE CREATED HIMSELF I might add.

But that is Obama’s legacy.  Declare a problem.  Agitate it.  Incite it.  Support it while publicly denouncing it and then watch as his efforts result in bloodshed, violence and upheaval.  Then he sets up his preferred leadership under the approval of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Mullah’s in Tehran.

Obama lit the fuse for the “Arab Spring” that deposed secular middle East dictators, for radical Islamists hell-bent on a Caliphate. He created the crisis in Syria by attempting to overthrow secular dictator Bashar Al-Assad and replacing him with an Islamist, the same way Obama did in Egypt and Libya.  The European ‘refugee’ crisis is one that Obama facilitated, in order for an Islamic invasion army could resettle within Europe and take over those nations from within.

Obama is doing the same thing here with the resettlement of MILLIONS of South Americans into the country and now his push to bring perhaps MILLIONS of “Syrian refugees’ here.  For anyone demanding common sense and calling suspend bringing millions of Muslim Syrian men into America – Obama calls them ‘racists’.

Obama slams GOP for demanding to stop importing Syrian Muslim “refugees” 

“When I hear folks say that maybe we should just admit the Christians and not the Muslims (refugees), when I hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which person who’s fleeing from a war-torn country is admitted, when some of those folks themselves come from families who benefited from protection when they were fleeing political persecution, that’s shameful. That’s not American,” Obama said, raising his voice and clearly agitated.

Obama is facilitating an invasion – for the purpose of overthrowing White, European Christian civilizations and facilitating the Islamic Apocalypse.  Then he spreads dissatisfaction and orchestrates upheaval among those same mobs.  From a strategic point of view, Obama has staged foreign potential Jihadists in the last few years in every major metropolitan area of the country – and even some small towns.

From Ferguson to college campuses across the country – using the meme and mantra against ‘White Privilege’, Obama’s Brownshirt-esque “Push for change”reveals that the Communist and Fascist Leftists think their revolution to overthrow the country is at hand, and they are happy to use their Jihadist allies in the Islamic movement to help them achieve it – even if it means certain destruction for the country.

I’ve written this before, Obama sees himself along with much of the Islamic world as Islam’s John The Baptist – the precursor to the ‘Mahdi’ – the One who will initiate world war and bring victory over the world for Islam.

The following two reads are crucial.  The first one from Daniel Greenfield is long and exhaustive – but I would urge you all to read it – and understand exactly what Obama is, what he is doing and why in relation to the Islamic Caliphate:

Barack Obama’s Unholy Alliance: A Romance with Islam

Obama has placed the full weight of the government’s resources behind Islam. He has suppressed domestic dissent against Islamists like the Muslim Brotherhood while aiding their international goals.

And by doing so, he has aided the foreign and domestic enemies of this country.

Obama’s record, history and actions that clearly illustrate the fact that Obama is working to Islamize America and the entire World.

BARACK OBAMA, NOT SO SECRET SERVANT OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

By John Velisek USN (Ret), staff writer

In 1953 during the presidency of Dwight Eisenhower, the Muslim Brotherhood began infiltrating the federal government. It is a scheme which has accelerated rapidly under Barack Obama, a willing partner and Muslim/Marxist whose anti-American agenda includes the creation of a caliphate in the U.S.

In an outright display of support for the Brotherhood, Obama has refused to stem the infiltration of our nation by Jihadists. In fact, he has chosen to bring 100,000 to 200,000 Muslim “refuMUSLIM REFUGEESgees” into the United States from Syria; refugees who can never be vetted    and whose numbers are comprised of some 85% males, aged 15-35.

Clearly bowing to the president’s bidding, the Director of National Intelligence has-incredibly to say the least-described the Muslim Brotherhood as a “largely secular organization.” The State Department issued a visa to Hazi Nour Eldin of Egypt to meet with senior White House Officials, all the while aware that Eldin is a member of Gama’a al-Islamiyya, a terrorist organization founded by Omar Abdel Rahman, the same blind sheikh convicted in the first bombing of the World Trade Center. What sort of perverse policy must the StMUSLIM BROTHERHOOD IN OBAMA REGIMEate Department embrace to allow such a meeting to take place and what was the tenor of the discussions between the Department and this obvious terrorist? Under the present circumstances could anyone investigating the State Department believe what they are told by the Obama Regime?

And Obama’s relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood has continued to grow during his years in the White House.

Obama’s principle advisor (some have even suggested co-president) Valerie Jarret has had dealings with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), going so far as to invite ISNA President Ingrid Mattson to work on the WINGRID MATTSONhite House Council of Women and Girls which Jarrett leads. Seven years ago, Mattson offered the prayer at Obama’s first inauguration. For many, “…the hidden message behind [that] display [was] that members of the [Obama]/[leftist] establishment will continue their torrent love affair with the Muslim Brotherhood.” Mattson’s ISNA “…was founded in 1981 by Muslim Brotherhood members” and “…seeks to establish Islamic law, or Shari’ah, as the basis [of] controlling society.”

Even the President’s brother Malik is known to be in charge of finances and arms procurement for the Muslim Brotherhood and executive secretary of the Islamic Da’wa Organization, or IDO, which is listed as a terrorist group by the US State Department. Malik has visited the Oval Office and sat with the President, even MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD OBAMA BROTHERthough all these facts were known.

The conclusion drawn from this information is inescapable. The current administration is using multiple associations to undermine the security and well-being of the country we all hold dear. From encouraging and facilitating illegal immigration both from the Middle East and Central America, to his blatant unwillingness to close the nation’s borders, Barack Obama has turned to outright support of the terrorists of the Muslim Brotherhood. And there can be no question that the chaos this administratOBAMA MUSLIMS BITTER CLINGERSion is causing in the everyday lives of Americans is intentional. It is time our treasonous Muslim/Socialist President stand aside before the onset of civil war.

Make no mistake, the American people will defend their lives their families and their country by force of arms rather than allow a traitor and his minions to take them from us.

Obama Will Ignore Congress And The People – Impose Iran Deal Himself


Fuhrer-IranDeal

After floating a trial balloon for a ‘Third term’ while in Africa – His Heinous’ henchmen tell Congress that if they do not approve the Iran treaty, Obama cannot be counted on to follow the law.

The hits are coming fast and furious now, daily even – as this news is like, so last week.  All by design of course in application of Saul Alinsky’s Rule No. 8.  You are so baffled by yesterday’s outrage that you miss the one or two the Obama regime dumped on America today.

In the avalanche of despotism and lawlessness, the Obama regime is not bothering to make pretenses anymore.  They are becoming proud of this Fascist Dictatorship it is establishing, with or without support from the Ruling Class Oligarchy, whom are just useful idiots for the moment: making a despotic coup legitimate.  This will become more clear in the days ahead as Obama furiously imposes his agenda to fundamentally transform the nation into smoldering ruin.

While the American people are all upset over the death of a lion in Africa thanks to the incessant Praetorian media’s attention to it, baby’s are harvested at taxpayer expense for their parts and tissue and the American people yawn at industrial extermination, while begin ruled by a dictatorial regime that demands obeisance to it’s ideology.  I’ve read and seen something similar happening to another enlightened and industrial nation about 70 years ago.  Still the people slumber.

Fascism is back in vogue, and an ignorant populace have no clue this is what now rules them.

Obama: If Congress Blocks My Iran Deal, I’ll Ignore The Law & Do It Anyway

How very fascist. So, Obama is saying that if Congress doesn’t play ball on approving the Iran deal, he might just go ahead and do it anyway. That violates the Constitution and the law. Technically he can’t do it – oh, but he will. Notice how Kerry sidestepped the issue? If Obama does this and isn’t made to answer for it or stopped, that’s the end of our Constitutional Republic and the actual beginning of a dictatorship. Even if a conservative is elected in 2016, by then $150 to 200 billion will have gone to Iran, effectively arming our enemies for our destruction. This president has gone rogue and we must reign him in – legally and physically if need be.

When you eliminate impeachment as a possibility and both sides of the political aisle are complicit in a Marxist agenda, you get this type of behavior. Obama is a narcissist with delusions of grandeur and a pen and a phone. Of course he won’t obey the law… he’ll flaunt it whenever he can get away with it. If leaders won’t go along with him, he’ll blackmail them or use leverage of some sort against them to get these so-called leaders to see things his way. This type of bowing before our enemies such as Iran, Russia and China will get millions of Americans killed. Obama knows and doesn’t care. This is treason you are watching unfold in the Oval Office.

Kerry Won’t Commit That They Will Follow The Law If Congress Rejects Iran Deal

A senior House Democrat at Tuesday’s Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on the Iran deal, asked Secretary of State John Kerry if the Obama regime would follow the law if the Senate rejects his Iran nuke deal. Kerry would not commit that the Obama administration would follow the law if Congress shoots down the deal by a veto-proof majority.

Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) asks John Kerry, “But let’s say Congress doesn’t take your advice and we override a veto and the law that is triggered then imposes certain sanctions. Will you follow the law even though you think it violates this agreement clearly, and even if you think it’s absolute terrible policy?” Sherman asked.

“I can’t begin to answer that at this point without consulting with the president and determining what the circumstances are,” Kerry replied.

“So you are not committed to following the law?” Sherman pressed.

“No, I said I am not going to deal with a hypothetical,” Kerry said. “That’s all.”

But if that doesn’t blow your mind, how about more insanity from Obama’s point man on handing the Iranian Mullah’s nukes and billions of dollars to make their pledge of ‘Death To America’ a reality?  He really, really said this when questioned about the rallies and chants led by Iran’s leaders:

KERRY: IRAN’S “DEATH TO AMERICA”DOESN’T MEAN THEY WANT TO KILL US

At no time was he made aware of an Iranian plan to destroy America.

Secretary of State John Kerry is still seeking a nuanced explanation for Iran’s government saying, “Death to America”. He called the Iranian government’s cries of “Death to America” “not helpful” and suggested that the Supreme Leader might not really mean it.

And now Kerry would like to emphasize that aside from the “Death to America” chants and the nuclear bombs and constant threats of war, at no time was he made aware of an Iranian plan to destroy America.

Yesiree bob.  The Clown Jester heading the State Department really said all of this under testimony. This is why Obama and his Jihadist pals are laughing their asses off at us.  They believe we are stupid enough to believe what Kerry said, and that there is no danger to the world with a nuclear-armed Iran.

But it’s not just the Dimwitted John ‘D. Student’ Kerry that says “Do not believe your own eyes and ears”- Obama’s CHIEF at DHS insists the following:

DHS Chief: Don’t Call it ‘Islamic Extremism’ Because Islamic Terrorism Doesn’t Have Anything to Do With Islam

So we have an Obama Regime that will hand Iran’s Mullahcracy billions of dollars, a free pathway to nuclear weapons, defend their nukes against our allies AND at the same time,INSIST that ‘Death To America’ does not mean they want to kill us.  Because after all, Islamic Terrorism has nothing to do with Islam according to the Obama Dictatorship.

Obama’s Middle Nuclear Finger To Us All – Bashes Americans On Iranian State TV

ObamaflipsoffIsrael

Obama goes on TV to address Iranians with best wishes on their holiday of Nowruz- then bashes Israel and Americans who oppose his efforts to hand Iran nuclear weapons.

Is it not amazing that His Heinous Obama I – never misses the opportunity to commemorate or celebrate every single Islamic holiday in the world?    Shia or Sunni?  So Obama tapes a message broadcast on Iranian TV, marking the Persian New Year celebration of Nowruz and uses the occasion to promote his plan to hand Iran nuclear weapons to their Mullah’s and Ayatollah.  He then went on to bash Americans who oppose his plan to hand them the weapons they will ultimately use on America and Israel.

“A nuclear deal now can help open the door for you, the Iranian people,” Obama said on TV.

Open the door to what?  Global Conquest?  Nuclear annihilation? Starting a nuclear WWIII to usher in their 12th Imam?

This petulant boy-king, enraged at Benjamin Netanyahu’s victory not only declares that the United States will “reassess our relationship with Israel”, but then goes directly to the Iranians to promote his efforts to hand them nukes.  This not only to a nation that promised to wipe Israel off the map, but an Islamic regime that just last week was found plotting to use nuclear weapons on the United States.

Iran endorses nuclear EMP attack on United States

One nuclear warhead detonated at high-altitude over the United States would blackout the national electric grid and other life sustaining critical infrastructures for months or years by means of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). A nationwide blackout lasting one year, according to the Congressional EMP Commission, could cause chaos and starvation that leaves 90 percent of Americans dead.

Iranian military documents describe such a scenario–including a recently translated Iranian military textbook that endorses nuclear EMP attack against the United States.

Thus, Iran with a small number of nuclear missiles can by EMP attack threaten the existence of modernity and be the death knell for Western principles of international law, humanism and freedom. For the first time in history, a failed state like Iran could destroy the most successful societies on Earth and convert an evolving benign world order into world chaos.

Yet Obama just last night – goes on Iranian television to promote giving their Islamic regime the very weapons they need to do attack us with.  In addition, Obama is considering lifting the 3 decades-long Arms embargo the Iranians demand before any secret deal is made.

A secret deal that the White House said they will keep secret – even after the agreement is made.

So here is the treasonous bastard, on Iranian TV – pushing his nuke deal and giving us all the big finger.  Let’s see if you are smart enough to pick up on the great lie he tells in this video.

Taqiyya much?  Well, here is the great big fat lie he told in that video, a lie that Hillary Clinton and his regime have insisted on for months.

Obama Is A Liar: There Is No Fatwa Against Nuclear Weapons By Iran’s Ayatollah Khameni

The Obama administration may not have much use for federal law or for Congress’s constitutional role in providing advice on, determining whether to consent to, and enacting any legislation necessary to implement international agreements. But it exhibits cloying reverence for a fatwa — a sharia law edict — issued by a jurist who runs a regime that is the world’s leading state sponsor of jihadist terror.

Even when the fatwa is a patent hoax.

…[T]he Supreme Leader [Khamenei] has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons, and President Rouhani has just recently reiterated that the Islamic Republic will never develop a nuclear weapon.

But the “fatwa” in question does not exist.

The invaluable Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has done extensive research into compilations of Khamenei’s published fatwas. (See here and here, and citations therein.) No such fatwa has ever been published.

In a sharia state, particularly the one in Iran that is actually run by the country’s top sharia jurists, fatwas are important statements of governing law, like statutes are in the U.S. Yet despite repeated requests, Iran has never produced the purported anti-nuclear weapons fatwa from Khamenei.

Indeed, as MEMRI elaborates, Khamenei was directly asked about the purported fatwa in a 2012 Facebook exchange:

[I]s it also forbidden to obtain nuclear weapons, as per your ruling that their use is prohibited?

He refused to answer the question:

Your question has no jurisprudential aspect. When it has a jurisprudent [sic] position, then it will be possible to answer it.

The notion that Khamenei actually believes nuclear weapons violate Islamic law and would issue a credible fatwa to that effect should be seen as absurd on its face. Put aside that Pakistan, which incorporates sharia in its law, has long had nuclear weapons. For over two decades, al-Qaeda has been trying to acquire nuclear weapons and has enjoyed essential support from the regime in Tehran.

Oil-rich Iran has no need to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes. It has explicitly threatened to wipe Israel off the map. It has been busily been developing weapons systems capable of delivering nuclear bombs in conjunction with its uranium enrichment. It could not be more obvious that Khamenei’s regime, far from rejecting nuclear weapons as anti-Islamic, seeks to acquire them in order to promote the imposition of its Islamic-supremacist ideology.

Is it not amazing that the man who pledged to the Russians and the world that he is committed to “a world without nuclear weapons” , and subsequently dismantled our own nuclear stockpiles – is so adamant to make sure that Iran obtains and develops nuclear weapons?  With Obama’s BLESSING I might add.

The sacking of Troy will not hold a candle to what Obama is enabling to happen to us and the world.

Obama administration won’t commit to making Iran deal public

Some details of a nuclear deal with Iran may not be made public, a senior Obama administration official said Thursday. …the emerging nuclear deal would likely allow Iran to have up to 6,000 nuclear centrifuges for at least 10 years. The deal would also lift sanctions on the country.

GOP Outrage Over Obama’s Iran Nuke Deal? It’s All Kabuki Theater

GOP-Kabuki

Obama to use UN to impose Nuke Deal.   Senate was told about John Kerry’s approval of Obama’s plans to circumvent Congress on Iranian nukes at his Confirmation hearings back in 2013.  They rubber-stamped Kerry’s nomination anyway.

For all the public outrage over His Heinous Barack Obama’s Dictatorial end-run around Congress and ignoring the Constitutional requirement for treaties to be ratified in the Senate, the truth is that the very same people now speaking out against Obama’s unilateral nuke deal agreement with Tehran – VOTED TO CONFIRM the very man who told them he approved of Obama using that tactic back in 2013.

It’s not like the Senate and the GOP did not know that Obama was planning to negotiate a deal with Iran without them. They knew!   John Effing Kerry TOLD them during his confirmation hearing in 2013 that HE SUPPORTED OBAMA ENACTING SUCH A DEAL BY HIMSELF and using methods outside of the ‘ideological restraint’ of Congress!!!!  Here’s excerpts from the transcript of his confirmation hearing:

SENATOR JAMES RISCH (R-ID)

There are a lot of us that are becoming increasingly concerned about all this talk regarding executive agreements as opposed to treaties that are negotiated by the executive branch as contemplated by the Founding Fathers and ratified, if appropriate, by this committee and eventually by the full Senate. Can you give us your view on matters regarding executive agreements? How do you feel about that and the bypassing of the committee?

SEN. KERRY: Well, it would depend — I would say to you, Senator, that it would depend on what the subject matter is and what the sort of scope is and whether or not it falls under a traditional treaty purview or it falls under executive agreement purview.

I can’t — I don’t want to be commenting in some prophylactic way one side or the other without the specific situation in front of me. But I’m confident the president is committed to upholding the Constitution. He’s — I don’t think he’s — you know, and I think — and I’ll say this to all of you.

There’s no better way to guarantee that whatever concerns you have about the president’s desire to move on an executive agreement would be greatly, you know, nullified or mollified if we could find a way to cooperate on a treaty or on the broader issues that face the nation. But you know, I think — I think there’s a lot of frustration out there that some of the automatic ideological restraint here that prevents the majority from being able to express their voice has restrained people and pushed people in a way where they’ve got to consider some other ways of getting things done.

SEN. RISCH: Well, and that’s exactly what concerns us, Senator Kerry, is the fact that it’s OK to do this through the regular order if it gets done, but if it’s not going to get done, then it’s — the ends justify the means; it’s OK to end-run around the Constitution.

So even when Kerry confirmed to these Senators that he was going to support an end-run around the Constitution in regards to Obama enacting treaties outside of Congress – these same Senators voted to confirm him as Secretary of State ANYWAY.

It’s all kabuki theater.

They say they oppose ObamaCare – the GOP FUNDS IT.  They say they oppose Obama’s Executive Amnesty and automatic citizenship for illegals – THE GOP FULLY FUNDS IT.  They say they oppose Obama’s usurpation of power and using the ATF, the FCC, FEC and other alphabets to impose “Law” by decree – they not only FULLY FUND IT – they refuse to use the tools the Constitution provides them to defund and oppose what Obama is implementing.

Kabuki.

These same GOP leaders will no doubt feign outrage over upcoming dictatorial decrees and usurpations by Obama and his Executive branch – yet they will no doubt confirm radical Loretta Lynch to replace Eric Holder at the Justice Department, even after she told them she approves of Obama making law outside the Constitution and handing rights to illegal aliens in preference over American citizens.

The Constitution is irrelevant to this regime now, and the GOP refuses to uphold it – or their oaths to support and defend it.

Obama will cut out Congress and take his Iran ‘deal’ to give the Mullah’s nukes to the UN Security Council, and this letter will be about the only effort they employ to assuage an outraged and bewildered American people.

 

Senate Was Warned About Obama’s End Run on Iran

Congress is struggling to thwart President Obama’s attempt to strike a nuclear deal with Iran on his own, in violation of the Constitution. Lawmakers are taking unprecedented measures — the invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Corker-Menendez bill and even a letter to Tehran to stop it. None of this would be necessary if the U.S. Senate had done its job instead of rubber-stamping John Kerry’s nomination as secretary of state.

In January 2013, Kerry plainly warned Senate Foreign Relations Committee members — the same people now leading the charge against the Iran deal — that he intended to support Obama’s end run around the Constitution because “they’ve got to consider some other ways of getting things done.” Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., Robert Menendez, D-N.J., and John McCain, R-Ariz., all heard Kerry’s statement first-hand, ignored it and voted for him, offering effusive praise for their former Senate buddy. Now they are getting what they should have seen coming.

Too bad the U.S. Senate abdicated its responsibility. It has final say on presidential appointments, but our senators would rather go along and get along than make sure nominees will follow the Constitution.

Have the senators learned their lesson? This month, the U.S. Senate is expected to vote on the nomination of Loretta Lynch as the next attorney general — the nation’s top law enforcement official. During a Judiciary Committee hearing in January, Lynch indicated she thought Obama’s executive actions to rewrite immigration laws were “reasonable.” Texas Sen. Ted Cruz calls her views “disqualifying” and says the Senate has a choice: defend the rule of law or “confirm an attorney general who has candidly admitted she will impose no limits on the president whatsoever.” Ensuring that top government officials are committed to the U.S. Constitution, it’s a no-brainer.

That’s what Sen. Jim Risch, R-Idaho, tried to do at Kerry’s confirmation hearing. The U.S. Constitution requires that treaties be ratified by a two-thirds vote of the Senate, something Obama foresees he cannot get. Obama calls the possible deal with Iran an “agreement.” Presidents have always made “agreements” without Senate approval, but none of the importance and duration of the Iran deal. “To allege that this doesn’t have all of the marks of a treaty is an insult to everybody’s intelligence,” says McCain now. But at the hearing, McCain was mum about the point.

Only Risch pressed Kerry, insisting that calling it an agreement, not a treaty, amounted to an “end run around the Constitution” that reflected a dangerous “ends justify the means” mentality. With masterful obfuscation, Kerry said maybe things could get done in “the regular order” — meaning constitutionally — but he wouldn’t guarantee it. “It would depend.”

Fast-forward to February 24, 2015, when Kerry returned to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for a budget hearing. When Menendez and Corker pressed him for information about the Iran negotiations, he stonewalled. “I’m not going to go into the details of where we are and what we’re doing.”

Worse, Kerry said there should be no “formal approval process” by Congress. “This is the president’s prerogative.” Kerry threw the senators a few crumbs, conceding that though the president can suspend sanctions against Iran, permanently removing them would require a vote in Congress.

A vote, but not the two-thirds majority of the Senate that the Constitution requires for treaty approval. That is why the Senate’s effort at curbing the president — the Corker-Menendez bill — is a shameful retreat. The bill says Obama must submit a final Iran arms deal to Congress within 60 days for hearings and a vote, and bars the president from suspending sanctions against Iran in the meantime. This puts the burden on Congress to cobble together a veto-proof majority, instead of the president having to win over two-thirds of senators. That’s not what the founders intended.

The Senate failed to do its job during Kerry’s confirmation hearings, and now the nation faces the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran. Senators treat these hearings as media opportunities and quibble about getting their 10 minutes on camera instead of asking tough questions. In fact, they request that answers be kept short so as not to infringe on their own time. It’s hardly the deliberative body the framers envisioned to provide “advice and consent” on critical issues.

obama-rips Constitution

Would the White House really try to get around the Constitution?

bizarre as it may seem — is that the administration would go to the United Nations Security Council to pass the Iran agreement and thereby boost its status as enforceable international law.

…the State Department refused to rule out the end run around the Senate and the Constitution. (“State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said on Tuesday: ‘I’m just not going to get ahead of how this would be implemented at this point in time.’”)

There are multiple, serious problems with such an approach. For one thing, Secretary of State John Kerry confirmed in testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that it was a non-binding deal that the next president could demolish with “a stroke of the pen.” Was he misleading the Senate, or is he willing to rule out the end run around the Senate?

Second, the entire legal theory is dubious at best. To believe it could work is to assert the president can unilaterally supersede the dictates of the Constitution.
