Top Liberal Opposes Barack Obama’s Iran Nuclear Deal

HIGH-PROFILE FOREIGN POLICY REBUKE …  || By FITSNEWS || U.S. president Barack Obama‘s push to pass a nuclear arms deal with Iran was dealt a major blow this week when liberal U.S. Senator Charles Schumer of New York announced his intention to vote against the measure. “Advocates on both sides…


|| By FITSNEWS || U.S. president Barack Obama‘s push to pass a nuclear arms deal with Iran was dealt a major blow this week when liberal U.S. Senator Charles Schumer of New York announced his intention to vote against the measure.

“Advocates on both sides have strong cases for their point of view that cannot simply be dismissed,” Schumer, who is Jewish, said in a statement. “This has made evaluating the agreement a difficult and deliberate endeavor, and after deep study, careful thought and considerable soul-searching, I have decided I must oppose the agreement and will vote yes on a motion of disapproval.”

Obama needs thirty-four votes in the Senate.  That’s the magic number to sustain his promised veto of forthcoming congressional legislation opposing the deal.

So far he has twelve.

Wait … why can’t a “Republican” Congress just kill this thing?  Why does it need sixty-six votes?

Oh … right.  About that “Republican” Congress … they punked on this issue, too.

As we reported previously, Obama’s proposed nuclear deal was pilloried by “Republican” presidential candidates on the left and the right … and with good reason.  It contains all sorts of goodies for a regime which doesn’t deserve one dime of aid … and provides this largesse in exchange for not a whole helluva lot in concessions regarding Iran’s nuclear program.

No wonder Iranian president Hassan Rouhani referred to it as an “answer to prayer.”

Obama has accused “Republicans” of fear-mongering related to the deal … although he’s fear-mongered on it himself.

Our thoughts?  “Eh ….”

We’ve never really bought into the Iran scaremongering – no matter whether it’s coming from Obama or the “Republican” hawks.  Nor do we especially give a damn what happens to Israel – a nation which continues to bark orders at the United States (even as it remains dependent upon American taxpayers).

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: American’s costly, ill-conceived interventionist foreign policy in the Middle East has not made our nation safer.  If anything, we have indirectly (and in some cases directly) created an enemy even more powerful than the one we ostensibly went over there to vanquish.

We’re now told it will take another thirty years (and God only knows how much more borrowed money and lost lives) to defeat this new enemy.

Oh, and our allies in this new “War on Terror?”  Yeah … about them.

Now: Does any of this mean America should refrain from taking decisive action abroad in response to clear and present dangers to our national security or compelling U.S. interests?  Of course not.

But there’s a difference between neutralizing specific, credible threats and launching wars of occupation we cannot afford … on any level.

Sorry. Everybody is still laughing at last night’s disaster. This won’t distract. Schumer is just being a good Israeli loyalist. Like all republicans. Glad we have a President who represent the USA first.

Bible Thumper August 7, 2015 at 2:55 pm

“It contains all sorts of goodies for a regime which doesn’t deserve one dime of aid.”

I keep hearing Trump, Fits and others talking about giving Iran aid or money. It’s not true. Not a dime of money is being given to Iran by the US or a other countries. During the the sanctions, revenue from oil sales was kept in banks around the world. When the sanctions are removed, that money is released.

Whether the deal is good or bad, I don’t know, but get the facts straight.

Don't hold your breath August 7, 2015 at 3:21 pm

This is a bottom tier Republican media outlet. Unfortunately, facts don’t agree with republican talking points. That’s why you’ll rarely find any here. Just like FoxNews.

Handouts divided August 7, 2015 at 3:39 pm

When you are a party of radical and selfish special interests, how long before it rips apart because one beggar is jealous of another, or liberal hate goes too far between bed-partners?

Obama despises Israel as much as Khomeini, yet the Jewish people in this country line up like sheep to put Obama, and the Democrats who hate their land, in office. Is this the beginning of Hitler-like schism?

And if the Hispanic illegals keep coming in and eating up all the handouts of welfare and food stamps, how long before there is a revolt in the African-American Community? And the worse the Obama-conomy nosedives, there is less money to give to the handout seekers.

When you govern corrupt, it’s only a matter of time before the thieves short-circuit on you.

Looks like that may be happening here.

Schumer carries water for the Israelis — period, His angst over deciding on the Iran deal was an act. There was never any doubt he would parrot Bibi’s position.

George Bush also ignored them pre-9/11, I think you forgot to mention that.

No, you didn’t forget, you just wouldn’t blame Bush for the same thing.

Hindsight is 20/20 anyways.

I hope the FBI doesn’t ignore you.

It’s only a matter of time before you snap like Roof did, with all the hateful rhetoric you post here.

Jamie Garelick's WALL August 7, 2015 at 5:30 pm

Clinton had the WALL that prevented us from knowing of the plot. The CIA and FBI was forbidden from sharing information, because Clinton believed he had to give evil enemy combatants due process. What do you think Sandy Burglar stole from the National Archives, Dumbass?

Aside from that, Bin Laden bombed the WTC once, and Clinton admitted he let him go free, even though he had the chance to get him.

Of course you’re a fucking Democrat, Reality means nothing to you.

Getting mad, huh? That’s because you know you’re on the losing side. Threatening Iran with war over and over again is what will force them to get a nuke, and fast as possible. You realize, much like the US, there are hardline conservative religious fantics (like you) and their are moderates who don’t think war is the answer to everything. Maybe asking the only nuclear power in the region, Israel, to stop their constant warmongering and threats would help. Fanatics like you had your chance during GWB’s disastrous eight years. We’re still in those war zones. So, fuck off asshole. You pricks had your chance and fucked it up all to hell.

The recent drop in oil prices has been attributed, in part, to the anticipated glut that will be on the market when Iranian oil hits the market. Are the democrats risking the security of the world in order to lower fuel prices and boost their chances in the upcoming elections? Lower fuel prices usually affect voters approval of their leaders. Remember how the media beat Bush to death with nightly updates on fuel prices and combat deaths but stopped as soon as the got Obama elected?

U R a very smart person August 7, 2015 at 8:55 pm

BING, BING, BING…we have a winner….TELL IT ALL BROTHER. YOU ARE 100% RIGHT. That is exactly why Obama is risking the security of the world to force this deal. Way too little too late.

And it’s the GOP’s job to remind EVERYBODY of the almost SEVEN years of astronomical gas prices.

Not to mention: home energy is still THROUGH the roof for families underemployed, and healthcare bills that are robbing them blind to pay for the Obamacare fiasco.

Sunset August 8, 2015 at 1:57 pm

Charles Schumer has just reinforced my decision to not contribute to the DCC anymore, even though I am a staunch democrat. I want non of my contributions to go to congressional members who won’t support their own president. Schumer is cow towing to politics even though many members of the Jewish community support this deal. Bernie Sanders, who is Jewish, has said he will support the deal.
And for those people who would rather start war now than to give a peace deal a chance, I say you can always have your war in ten or so years if this doesn’t work out. But in the meantime we will have acquired much needed information on their setup. I really don’t believe the Iranian people want a war and neither do we. Time to try diplomacy for a change. Therefore, I will send my contributions to the members of Congress who do the right thing, like Bernie.

Material exist of Barack Obama secret extra martial affair is being suppressed to
conceal he once held a private orgy. It gets worse the event was accident
captured with a hidden video camera. Voices only but the media that been
released is narrated by a child.

The child calls Obama by name 3 times, but that portion is on the full 90 minute recording. Watch the live video of what occurred when this media was about to be discovered by the court Obama held an 8 month secret affair with my ex-spouse I’ve preserved most of hard facts that could prove my case in any court, but if I return to Chicago or even reside in Illinois the safety of my child at risk. My main gold for releasing my story is not to try to get him impeached, which I don’t believe would be impossible., if presented in a court. My goal is to reveal the evilness that got him to be the 44th President of the United States. The heart is more treacherous than anything else and is desperate.Who can know it?Jer. 17:9
