Obama to veto bill letting Congress weigh in on Iran deal

Free Republic

President Barack Obama would veto a bill recently introduced in the U.S. Senate allowing Congress to weigh in on any deal the United States and other negotiating countries reach with Iran on its nuclear capabilities, the White House said on Saturday.

“The president has been clear that now is not the time for Congress to pass additional legislation on Iran. If this bill is sent to the president, he will veto it,” said Bernadette Meehan, a spokeswoman for the White House’s National Security Council…

Obama comes off as an adolescent punk far out of his league. But you can’t call him a failure:

In the early days of the Fundamental Transformation, Rush Limbaugh took heat for hoping Obama failed. We would be passing along a vastly better country to the next generation if Rush’s hope had come true.

Louie Gohmert Begs Democrats to Help Stop Obama from ‘Speaking’ Laws in to Effect

Yul Brynner So Let It Be Written

 

Gateway Pundit

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) gave an impassioned speech on the House floor on Friday during debate on funding the Department of Homeland Security and President Barack Obama’s un-Constitutional executive actions on immigration.

Gohmert accused Obama of usurping Congress by ‘speaking’ laws in to effect—not even bothering to write anything—that are then enacted from thin air by means of a Homeland Security memorandum without any involvement by Congress.

While Gohmert didn’t say so, the image of Yul Brynner as the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses in the film The Ten Commandments comes to mind. One of Brynner’s memorable lines was when he would make law for Egypt simply by speaking his dictate followed by, “So let it be written, so let it be done.”

Text of Rep. Gohmert’s speech as transcribed by Kristinn Taylor.

“Thank you, Madam Speaker. I appreciated so much my friend Mr. Scott bringing that oath. It does mean a lot taking that oath–to serve in the Army for four years taking basically the same oath; to be a prosecutor in Texas; to be a judge in Texas; to be a chief justice in Texas and now to be in Congress–it means something.

“And protecting the Constitution means that if we don’t preserve the balance of power then this little experiment in democracy or the ‘Republic, madam’ as Benjamin Franklin referred to will be lost.

“So I appreciated what my friend from Maryland said and I wrote it down because it was profound and I quote, “We gave up the opportunity to act responsibly.”

“And I would humbly submit Madam Speaker that that’s been going on for the last six years. Now some of it went on during the Bush administration as the president used executive orders and took powers that probably shouldn’t have been his.

“But in talking to people that have been in Congress over the last thirty-five years or so, they’ve told me that whether it was Gerald Ford, or Richard Nixon—Goldwater went down Pennsylvania Avenue—Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton or George W. Bush there was a willingness on both sides of the aisle to get in a car together and go down Pennsylvania and say, “Mr. President, you have usurped far too much power. We can’t let you destroy the Constitution any further. We are taking a stand.”

“And we have missed that opportunity to act responsibly but fortunately it’s not yet too late. This will act respon-(glitch in video)-say and if you don’t know what irresponsibility is then look at Judge Hanen’s opinion he spells it out.

“This president didn’t even have the gumption to write an executive order and sign it. He spoke his new amnesty law in to being and then Jeh Johnson did a memo. That took the power of Congress away from us.

“So the question on acting responsibly is, “Do we make that message clear? We’re not having laws spoken in to being in this country and having some bureaucrat—unelected—come around with a memo that undoes laws by different Congresses all these years, signed by different Presidents with a memo?”

“Come on. It’s time to act responsibly. Now is the time, please, I know party divisions run deep but stand with us for the Constitution.

“I yield back.”

US – Iran nuclear deal may be dead on arrival and should be

Family Security Matters

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD, MAJ. GEN. PAUL E. VALLELY, US ARMY (RET)

The most recent talks in Geneva between US Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif may have completed a major step toward a landmark nuclear accord that the Obama Administration believes will diminish Tehran’s pathways to a nuclear weapon. The potential deal, as reported by the AP and The New York Times, would impose uranium stockpile and enrichment limitations on Iran, and Tehran would have to submit to a restrictive verification and inspection regime for a period of 10 to 15 years. In return, sanctions on Iran would be lifted, and its status as a uranium-enriching nation would be prescribed under international law.

Israeli Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz stated , however, that if the emerging US – Iran nuclear agreement did not include measures preventing any nuclear cooperation with North Korea or other rogue states, it would be meaningless, referring to North Korea’s previous clandestine and illegal nuclear projects in Syria – “We all know that Iran, Syria and North Korea are very close to each other,” he said.

Yet the Obama Administration appears to ignore this potential loophole in order to conclude an agreement acceptable to Iran. Unless specifically prohibited and enforced within the terms and conditions, Tehran may attempt to sidestep the protocols by “outsourcing'” parts of the bomb production process to North Korea, Iran’s long-term partner on everything from launch missiles to guidance systems to nuclear war head technology and other required components.

Spoken like the dictator that he is: “We’ve expanded MY authorities,” Obama Dares GOP, “Have a Vote … I Will Veto”

He’s a madman running amok

Note the royal “we.” America went from 200 years of “We the people” to “We, Obama” in the blink of an eye.

The internet, bullets, and now this — and that’s just today.

Obama Dares GOP: Go Ahead, ‘Have a Vote on Whether What I’m Doing Is Legal…I Will Veto’ | MRCTV (thanks to Van)

(Watch video at link.)

Pres. Obama is daring Republicans to vote on whether or not his executive actions are legal.

Discussing opposition to his executive amnesty orders at an immigration town hall Wednesday, Obama said he would veto the vote because his actions are “the right thing to do”:

Democrats “Accountable” for Illegal Aliens “Murdering Americans All Over Our Cities”

Independent Sentinel

Barack Obama threatened Border Patrol at a town hall this past week, calling them “Border Control.”

Perhaps he should stop insulting Border Patrol and worry about the illegal drug cartel members and terrorists who are known to be slipping over our borders at his open invitation.

rep-pete-sessions-r-texas

Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) said Thursday evening that President Barack Obama and Democrats, who are responsible for the continual release of undocumented immigrants, are murdering Americans.

“Every day, all along border states, maybe other places, there are murders by people who have been arrested coming into this country, who have been released by the Obama administration, I believe in violation of the law, who are murdering Americans all over our cities,” the Rules Committee chairman said at a meeting while discussing Obama’s deportation relief policies. “We hold the Democrat Party and the president personally accountable for this action.”

The instances of illegal aliens killing Americans are too numerous to count.

Rep. Steve King said much the same thing last year.

President Obama announced his 10-point plan to violate the Constitution last November.

Since then a Texas judge has issued an injunction of the order as a result of a lawsuit by 26 states who say the costs will place an undo burden on their states.

Mr. Obama has promised to violate that order.

He has also decided to give the illegal immigrants Social Security numbers which gives them welfare benefits in the form of Earned Income Tax Credits. They will even be allowed to go back four years and redo their tax forms to collect up to $35,000 in back money. They also get an automatic “birthright citizenship”.

No American president has ever violated the Separation of Powers as Barack Obama has.

Last year, he released 36,000 criminal illegal aliens onto our streets.

He and his party are accountable for the damage being done, not only to individual families who suffer at the hands of criminal aliens, but to the cities now plagued with illegal alien crime.

The Sinoloa Cartel has set up a lucrative business in the United States and they hire illegal alien MS-13 gang members stationed in the U.S. to do their dirty work. It isn’t being reported by our government.

For example, the DOJ gave out an official news release about a recent kidnapping of two teenagers but omitted the fact that it was orchestrated by the Sinoloa Cartel and MS-13, according to a report.

Listen:

Most U.S. crime is committed by illegal alien gangs. They are the primary distributors of illicit drugs in the U.S.  The Justice Department said that up to 80% of crime in the U.S. is committed by gangs and that gang membership in this country has grown to 1 million, an increase of 200,000 in the last few years.

According the U.S. Justice Department’s National Drug Assessment of 2011, Mexican drug cartels have been reported to be operating in more than a thousand U.S. cities in 2009 and 2010. It has gotten much worse since then.

These cartels control most of the distribution of heroin, marijuana, and meth in the U.S. and their operations are increasing, according to the report.

The report further states that the cartels in the U.S. operate primarily in Florida, the Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic, New England, New York, New Jersey, Pacific, Southeast, Southwest, and West Central.

The report concludes that these Mexican-based organizations “control access to the U.S.-Mexico border, the primary gateway for moving the bulk of illicit drugs into the United States.”

This is a willful destruction of the country and the murder of innocent Americans for an ideological cause.

Can We Impeach Now?

Red State

First Barack Obama decided to overreach and extend amnesty by executive order. One judge in Texas has told him no and Republicans are hanging their hat on that judge’s order.

Then the FCC decided to declare internet a public utility. They overreached, rushed it through, and committed to as little transparency as possible to make it happen. Congress did nothing on this front and the FCC decided to replace the Congress on the matter.

Now there are reports that Barack Obama, by executive order and agency regulation, will curtail the manufacture of certain ammunition.
