WHAT WAS THE POINT OF A GOP “MAJORITY” AGAIN?
|| By FITSNEWS || “Republicans” in the U.S. Congress fell two votes shy of blocking president Barack Obama‘s nuclear deal with Iran – the latest high-profile failure of the so-called “majority” party in Washington, D.C.
Of course the real failure occurred months ago – when U.S. Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee (this guy) sponsored a bill which flipped the typical treaty ratification process on its head.
That bill – which passed both chambers by overwhelming margins back in April – was branded as a way to “give Congress a vote” on the Iran deal. Unfortunately, all Corker’s bill did was grease the skids for a widely pilloried deal that had previously been viewed as “dead on arrival.”
According to Americans for Limited Government (ALG) President Rick Manning, Corker’s legislation “turned the normal treaty ratification process on its head by requiring a veto override of two-thirds votes in both houses in order to stop the deal rather than the constitutionally required two-thirds majority in the Senate for ratification.”
Manning says the deal Obama has submitted “is in fact a treaty” and that GOP Senators should treat it as such.
“The Senate should consider the deal as a treaty under Article II of the Constitution, requiring a two-thirds ratification vote of senators present, take it up, and defeat it,” he said.
We agree …
This website has never bought into the scaremongering over Iran – whether it’s coming from crazy, liberal Republicans or our socialist/ fascist president. But we don’t believe our government should dole out billions of dollars to the radical Islamic nation either.
It’s a taxpayer issue to us …
More to the point: If the Constitution says U.S. presidents needs the approval of two-thirds of the Senate to pass a treaty like this, what on earth is the GOP doing screwing around with that?
Let’s get ‘er started boys. Ha, ha!! I win again!!!!!
Yes you did. One 9/11/2015, YOU terrorists won again.The American haters and appeasers of those trying to destroy America,won again.
I am beginning to believe that NON-citizen band of freeloading gypsy’s you host may be domestic spy’s.
Wow, you really do hate America.
Considering his use of the “Greengrocer’s Apostrophe” to denote plural, he is either a greengrocer or the product of the “failing pubic school system” Will is always nattering about.
I ain’t an advocate baby killing like you?How is that?Bet your kids had a great time growing up.Did you teach em to drop the family pet off the roof for entertainment or put out anti freeze in their milk?
Wake up on the wrong side of the station wagon today?
I just don’t take your shit nor any other American hating socialist on here.That bothers you liberals.You are used to running over good people with your evil and perverted souls.
Great mid-terms. What are you like 0-10 on the year? Planned Parenthood funding is next? Time to look at next year’s draft picks.
None of it matters.Obama is ruling like a dictator with illegal E/O’s that will be reversed with a Republican President.
All that matters is deportation,the Wall and No Amnesty. ALL of that will happen.Without illegals,Democrats can’t win elections.
Reversed by a Republican president?
Oh! Like how the senate republicans are reversing all of Obama’s policies?
The GOP has abandoned you bigot fools. Time for you dipshits to unite and form a new party. Like that will ever happen.
You seem to have a problem with a lot of things. Today it’s because we are getting ready to implement a multinational agreement that has only one flaw you can’t get past – it’s made with a former adversary. Man, you must have gone on a ten day drunk when we re-opened our embassy in Vietnam. You’re so stupidly blind with hate you’de have fought against the Marshall Plan. You’re so full of hatred you’de have been the last dinner in the south to serve colored customers.
Another Charlie Brown episode . With “leadership” like McConnell and Boehner , Obummer is truly King Barack the first.
Thank goodness the republicans in the senate are way smarter than the idiots who voted for them.
Obummer and the Dems still need 8 more years to repair the damage caused by Pres. Cheney and the next repub nominee’s mentally challenged brother.
Trump will clean the mess up.Deportation,the WALL and No Amnesty will bring this nation back.
Yes. Trump is definitely cleaning up the wackos from the GOP. No doubt there.
Talked with Obama and Biden last night – they wanted to give a special call out Thanks to Bob Corker and the GOP votes that helped pass his review legislation – particularly Rubio, Cruz, Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell.
Good. More war averted.
The republican revolution of 2014 is as good as promised.
“…flipped the typical treaty ratification process on its head.”
This. Was. Not. A. Treaty.
Ignorant. Ignorant. Ass.
You can call it a pecan pie…that’s how much relation this multinational agreement has to a ‘treaty’.
Secretary of State John Kerry answered questions from Congress about the Iran Nuclear Deal.
REP. REID RIBBLE: For 228 years, the Constitution allowed treaties to [pass] with the advice and consent of 67 U.S. Senators. Why is this not considered a treaty?
SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY: Well Congressman, I spent quite a few years trying to get a lot of treaties through the United States Senate, and it has become physically impossible.
That’s why. Because you can’t pass a treaty anymore. It has become impossible to schedule, to pass, and I sat there leading the charge on the Disabilities Treaty which fell to basically ideology and politics. So I think that is the reason why.
You are a fucking moron.Kerry tells you it is NOT a treaty ONLY because it wouldn’t pass the senate! You fucking people are worse that Stalin or Mao.
I love posting irrelevant crap. ALL DAY LONG!!!!!
Rocky is a domestic spy.
Where’s my baby love, GrandTango. He always made me sound almost sane.
I AM THE DEMOCRAT PARTY! I AM A SOCIALIST!
SOCIALISM: (1839) word is born, 1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or government ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods 2a: a system or condition of society in which there is no private property b: a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state 3: a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.
And I LOVE reading it !!
THIS IS EXACTLY THE DEFINITION OF A TREATY YOU FLAMING HALF WIT
noun, plural treaties.
1. a formal agreement between two or more states in reference to peace,alliance, commerce, or other international relations.
2. the formal document embodying such an international agreement.
3. any agreement or compact.
Only in the idiotic, disingenuous minds of our ridiculously incompetent elected representatives, most especially the RINOs and liberals who can’t help themselves does the “multinational agreement” not meet the established definition of a treaty as it was understood for the last 5-6,000 years and clearly understood by the framers of our Constitution.
Colonel…you and I are a POWERFUL force for truth! I may take one of your classes if you let Grand Tango speak.
You’re right, Colonel, but I question the wisdom of the Constitution making it easier to declare war than pass a treaty.
Treaties have the power to draw us into undeclared wars that we didn’t start and don’t want to fight. We’ve formally declared war 5 times and with the exception of the War of 1812, the vote was nearly unanimous.
Great comment !
I would actually agree with you, however, I wonder if the framers of the Constitution ever envisioned nut-jobs running Congress.
Sure they did – the Constitutional Convention was filled with “difficult men” of all political persuasions. What they didn’t envision was our “political class”, Washington warned against it, Madison would have been aghast.
But not as many as now. I’ll give you the policitcal class though. I figure, for example, Bush’s play in Virginia, is to rally the federal employees who benefited from the Bush legacy of expanded Federal bureaucracy.
I have not actively supported term limits – until now.
2 senatorial terms and 4 legislative terms should be the limit – with a “10 year bar” from coming back to Congress.
I could go with that, but I want to further add, you don’t get a pension, just a 401K plan. The idea you would serve 8 years in the House (where you work three days a week) and get a pension is sickening.
Colonel you have to trust the voters.No term limits.Why take the choice of the people away from them?
Are you a Democrat? What a stupid idea for a conservative.You do know the Republican’s control EVERY legislative institution in this country from the dog catcher to the senate (and the executive branch in 2016) and you want to fucking give it away to socialists like Rocky?
You appeased the Democrat Party haters on the confederate flag-don’t sell your soul on Fits so the socialists will like you.
“Colonel…you and I are a POWERFUL force for truth!” – well that didn’t last long.
I might tentatively agree with you that RINOs control every thing – except they don’t, 17 of our states have largely Democrat gubernors and Democrat control. While Republican Governors do outnumber Democrats 2:1, not all of them have full control of their legislative bodies. The other important thing that we’re missing in this discussion is the bureaucrats – they are largely uber liberal Democrats. I’m no longer a Republican and was a Democrat for about 2 weeks 35 years ago when I supported “Jammy Carter” before learning about Ronald Reagan.
If I have to be defined with one word, I’m a “conservative”.
You [email protected]$$es!!! Iran will have a bomb in two days now!!! (Does this deal effect my govt assistance in any way?)
Seriously! Does it? That the only reason I was against this deal. First Israel, now Iran!!! I want my checks, Obama!!!!!!
Glad that those cuckold repubs are doing what’s right for the USA. Obama might be the best president of my lifetime, certainly of the 21st century.
It’s about time the republicans wised up and started doing what’s right.
I agree. They need to resign and find respectable work.
I hope Nikki continues the good work when she’s handed a position in Washington. There are a lot of racist buffoons to rangle and neuter in the GOP and I’m clearly the minority woman for the job. Look how I easily handled those morons on SC.
You could have stopped right there.
Rouhani says nuclear deal ‘political victory’ for Iran
Dubbing it a proud moment for Iranians, President says Tehran will no longer be regarded as an international threat.
Iran agrees.Muslim Obama was able to funnel 150 BILLION to em so they can continue killing Americans.
You’re talking about the Saudis. Learn some geo-politics, bumpkin.
Flip is trying to steal my identity! He is a fraud! I am actually pro-choice and think gays should have the same rights as everyone else!
I like the Muslim policy on gays.
I fled to America so I could live the gay lifestyle without being beheaded.
Water is wet, fire is hot, Republicans fail…
Obama AGAIN succeeds to force Ignorant policy down the throat of a very disapproving America, while FITSNews has its head up its ass, AGAIN.
21% of Americans agree with the deal.Of course The ‘closet’ Muslim pResident is NOT really an American so the fact his Radical Islamic spiritual mates like the deal is all that matters to Ayatollah Obama.
Thank god you nutters have Trump.
I am the NEW Democrat Party! Visit my new site!:

Thank God I have Trump fooling those nutters.
The man with a 50 point gender gap, and if you listen to Flip and Brietfart – that’s “victory baby.”
Trump’s gains come most notably among two groups that had proven challenging for him in the early stages of his campaign — women and those with college degrees. While he gained just 4 points among men in the last month (from 27% in August to 31% now), he’s up 13 points among women, rising from 20% in August to 33% now. Trump has also boosted his share of the vote among college graduates, increasing his support among those with degrees from 16% in August to 28% now. Among those without degrees, he stands at 33%, just slightly higher than the 28% support he had in August.
Rocky the liar.
Just look at those numbers. Up from 20 to 30% on half the eleoctorate. Up from 16% to 28% on the most educated Americans. Stunning, sweeping the freakin’ field there.
You lied again.As usual.
No Dude, it’s a big story in Brietfart claiming Trump is attracting the woman vote. Until of course, you actually read the story.
Well that shows coherent and rational thinking.
Just facts Rocky.
No, just lies derp. If you want to attack policy, fine. But making up lies about a man’s religion and citizenship is not truth. Sorry you’re so hate filled. I’d stay away from red wine and drunk bars in Myrtle Beach.
Thanks for the advice.Maybe you should get ‘legal’?
Gonna be nice and not respond in an unkind way.I can smell the stench from your shit eating compound all the way up in Port Clinton.
That’s Toledo you smell.
That and Detrioit. Are not the prevailing winds out of the NW today?
Want a taco?
Not a requirement for Republicans.
Like keeping a personal server in a bathroom as SEC of State?
Don’t you mean “Obama and his allies, the republicans…”
Even the republicans in the senate know you kooks are going to be left behind.
I honeymooned in the former USSR and love communism.When Hillary goes to prison I will take your property and seize your assets in the stock market if elected-for the common good!
kooks? Man I am a marxist.Love Castro.Gonna take those farms and close the banks.
Obama and his Democratic Party minions would rather the American people continue to believe their freedom-crushing ideology is as docile as, well, Islam. The Prophet Muhammad, Karl Marx, and the Community-Organizer-in-Chief believe the sweep of history assures the hegemony of their ruthless, totalitarian ideologies.
“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” President Obama famously said. Cultish Democrats and the mainstream media demand that we infidels substitute the phrase “hope and change” for “Islam.”
Obama found a way to honor the ‘prophet of Islam’ by giving Iran nukes.
Well said. Thanks for your service to our country.
Shout out to my GOP buddies, once again on my side but pretending not to be!
Shout out to the prophet Mokammed and the Ayattolah, once again on my side but pretending not to be!
Flip, buddy, it’s OK! The guys you voted for? They’re on my side! They work with me and for me! They just pretend they don’t to keep up appearances, but really we are tight knit. Sometimes I go over to Boehner’s and play poker. That guy has the best booze. We all talk about how we want the same things and laugh at guys like you who don’t realize it.
Look, people like flip are stupid and easy marks, but we don’t need them anymore.
We made a huge mistake appealing to deeply dumb racists. Our bad. We’re working hard to distance ourself from these scumbags. Thank god for Trump.
Unfortunately America no longer has leaders but the real problem is the uneducated and or stupid people this country that think government can supply their every need. I will admit it is possible but then we would all be slaves.Obama’s minister’s prayer has come to be but it is not God that damns America it is it’s sinful,lazy worthless people and Democrat’s that have led to this and the Republican so called leadership!
Jeremiah Wright: America’s Chickens Are Coming Home To …
Jan 13, 2012 – Uploaded by Louis Leo IVJeremiah Wright: America’s Chickens Are Coming Home To Roost.
Anyone who simply looks at the factual evidence as to whether Obama loves America, or does not, will find remarkably little to suggest love and a large amount of evidence, over a long period of years, showing his constant close association with people fiercely hostile to this country. Jeremiah Wright was just one in a long series of such people.
This deal with Iran is just another example.
Obama is a remarkable president. Stop using my name you troll!
Yeah, right!!!! Ba-bam!!!!!
On the mark!
Same shit different day……ad infinitum……
How about not posting something that’s not a variation of the same damn theme since the fucker got elected back in 2008 why don’t you???
Oh, I know…..
How about raising the birth certificate issue and how “Obammer”‘s (who I DID not vote for) presidency is null and void and he should be removed from office immediately.
You know, something original like that……………Or maybe cut and pasting shit off the internet and sending it to everyone in the entire world like the stereotypical crank of an uncle about how “Obammer” is a Muslim from Mars???
I get tired of hamburger helper after 3 damn days…… how the fuck can schlubs like yourself keep this shit up for 7 fucking years and counting??
I’m sure glad you brought uneducated stupid people but you left out frightened of the future and insecure……………….
You know…..just the types that are supporting Trump!!!!
Your kind are so clueless and delusional………You latch on to every loud-mouthed demagogue that comes along that promises to make things like they were in the past (which begs the question…….JUST WHOSE PAST ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT??” )
You cling to the lies those lying sacks of shit say because you have nowhere else to go or anyone else to place your trust in.
Putting your trust in Trump is exactly like the desperate people clinging to the fantail of the Titanic.
And we all know how that turned out………..don’t forget the dude who was a high official with White Star Lines slunk into a lifeboat and cowered the whole time and was a wreck for the rest of his life just like Trump would be in the same situation……
The people will get to vote for-or-against the deal in 2016.
By the Bye…how’s Hillary’s campaign going? …No media seems to be highlighting her bid. (:
Don’t worry, because I will soon enough. :)
Hey Donny – hot off Brietfart today – “A new CNN/ORC poll shows that Trump has increased his lead among Republican women, boosting his share to 33% of women voters, up from 20% a month ago.” You might think that’s a victory formula. Ask Romney and McCain. Here’s the math. In a general, that means out of a group that consists of 52% of voters, you’ll get, ready for it, 17% maybe. Meaning your opponent, will get, ready for it – 35. Add in Latinos who hate you, and you start off a General election with 17% versus 40%. Can you say – sweep the table. Only on Brietfart can a 50% point gender gap be considered a “good” thing.
Obama destroyed the Democrat Party.Clinton and Biden would be an extension of Obama’s 2 terms.Only 30% want an Obama 3rd term.Sanders is a communist.
Democrats can’t win WH in 2016. Election will be an extension of 2014 mid terms. I think Bush would even win.
That is why the Democrat Party is acting in such a lawless manner.They won’t hold power for decades.
LMAO!!! She had about 20 people in Columbus,Oh yesterday while her aide was taking the 5th!!!
Are you listening to the Democrat media? They are SURE Biden will ride in on his white horse, and be wildly accepted by the American people as Mr/ Integrity and Mr. Leadership we can all have faith in?
All I can say is WOW!!..
If this we’re going on in the GOP, the implosion of the party would be like Trump-hate coverage…24-7…
Instead the media is eerily silent, desperately trying to figure out a way to escape their come-uppance.
Yes indeed.She won’t be nominee however the media and Democrats are scared to death of Trump and will focus on destroying Trump.
We love Trump. He’s following the plan to perfection.
Glad you are too, flip.
Get your multiple personality disorder in check. You are just talking to yourself. It will help if you get a job and have to deal with other people. It will help me as well. One less lazy mouth to feed.
Jack bring a Taco home tonight with extra SAUCE!I love you.Thank you SCOTUS.Jack and I are in love.
I notice all the idiots here who apparently forget that today is 9/11, brought to us by those close personal friends of George W Bush, The Saudis. Aren’t you proud of our current President who has saved us from the likes of that for almost eight full years?!? How about a little credit where credit is due…
Bill Clinton is to blame for 9/11.He passed on killing Bin Laden
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will be to blame for the next LARGE terrorist attack on this nation.
That’s why Condi Rice’s testimony to the 9/11 commission was in the dark, with a band of lawyers? Seems to me when you get a memo warning of Al Quada hijacking planes, you don’t put it in the drawer for readying in October.
Probably stored with Obama’s birth certificate,grades/transcripts,lois Lerners emails and Hillarys 33,000 emails
Don’t forget Roves emails.

Well, we ain’t had one under the watchful of eye of Barak Hussien Obama the Muslim.
New strategy by Muslim Obama.Build ISIS.Install ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood in the middle east (Egypt got smart) and give Iran nukes.
It’s coming.Obama has to get rid of Israel first.
They are all on the same side now.
BAM WAM—-TKO on Rocky!
I take offense. Clinton is the greatest leader we’ve EVER had.
I do believe you are truly flipped out!
Truly you are the biggest idiot. So guessing you blame Bush for the crash of the economy two wars, highest gas prices, etc or is that all Billys fault as well
Sick, You are a Liar but the real problem is so many folks are to stupid to figure out the Truth. Back in the Clinton era an assistant Attorney General named Jamie Gorelick put out a Memo that forbade the FBI,CIA and other agencies to compare notes,sort of like Obama’s Homeland Security does on illegals. The information was there but could not be pieced together because of this. I do not say this to disregard Bush I say it for the Public’s truth. Both Party’s have as much responsibility in this as the other.But stupid partisans and the Evil and I do mean Evil Democrat Party has led this nation to destruction. I have been blessed but my children and grand children are going to pay for this if God does not decide to come back first. Those in the Nation that are not stupid and or uninformed are like Sheep being led to the slaughter!
They were actually friends with George H.W. Bush but don’t let that interfere with your vacuous diatribe…
I give Obama all due credit for publicly bowing down to the Saudis for all to see.
Instead of strolling in the garden hand in hand, playing kiddy kissy with Daddy’s royal buddies, like GWB. He was nice enough to let the Bin Ladens fly out of the country when all other air traffic was grounded on 9/11. Now they’re funding ISIS. At least you’ll get the chance to elect another Bush in 2016.
“Bush’s butt buddies”…multiple user names commenters are trolls and add nothing but money to Sic Willie’s pocket. Keep it up though, it’s the only life you have.
I’m having a Hummus snack at my desk, does that make me a Muslim?

Not if you are scooping the Hummus with a saltine cracker and washing it down with a PBR……………….
Our socialist/fascist President? Really? I didn’t think you’d bring that Bircher crap out of storage.
“Get us OUT of the UN”?
“Impeach Earl Warren”?
Yep, someone fucked up and pulled the stake from the heart of the Birchers……….They’re kinda/sorta back again….
Just like in a bad Dracula movie…….
Republicans do this every single time that a major piece of legislation hits their desks. They rally against it, throw bitch fits, and oh by the way allow it to go through and pass, despite having a majority. Their constituents fall for this shit every time, and I love it.
Real Facts about 9-11 can be found in the Book Entitled “Unlimited Access”. It was written around 1995 or 1996 by a retired FBI Agent by the name of Gary Aldrich. I remember reading it and pulled it out and reviewed it again. The Clinton’s both are anti American. They dismantled a comprehensive Security System so they could get their friends into the White House and put them on the payroll..The agent says the Clinton White House Staff were repeatedly shocked at the drug use,theft,openly Gay sex that went on. They were alarmed at those who had access to Classified material with the proper Security Clearances. Hilary’s way of operating is the only way she could hide all this stuff and be in the position she is today. Remember after Clinton left office one of his operatives was caught taking Classified Material out of it’s location. This is the way the Clinton’s and Democrat operate. As I have said many times,Americans or uninformed and or stupid. In my personal opinion the Democrat Party Leadership as a whole is scum ,without morals and are leading to the downfall of America with the help of the Republican Leadership. I am beginning to wonder if this country deserves to be saved!
“I am beginning to wonder if this country deserves to be saved!”
God’s smite was Bush II.
Then let’s drop the “BIG ONE and get it over with
Just don’t forget that when that happens everybody you hold dear will either be dead, dying or wish they were while puking their guts out and shitting on themselves due to radiation sickness and there won’t be any more college football or lap dances or warm puppies or smiling children or birds singing……
Well, hopefully you get the general idea……
It’s your call Buckwheat
It don’t make a shit to me…………..I did my time doing “Duck and Cover” drills back in the late 50’s and early 60’s……..
In other words, quit your bitching, things could be a LOT worse…………..
There are so many creative ways to stop the President from his mad dash to the cliff, and the GOP glitterati are either too lazy or too stupid to do any of them. This Iran “deal,” besides everything else, is just plain dumb. You can’t have an agreement when you don’t know what the agreement is.
