Protests erupt in Congress as UN races toward Iran vote

Senate Republicans have found a new target in the war of words with President Obama over Iran: the United Nations.

They argue that the administration is about to leapfrog Congress by allowing the international body to approve a nuclear pact that lawmakers have not signed off on, let alone properly reviewed.

The battle is uniting Republicans, from conservative firebrand and presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to GOP leadership and Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.).

Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), the chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, urged the administration to hold off on the U.N. Security Council vote.

Doing otherwise, Thune said, would show that “the president holds the opinion of the United Nations in higher esteem than the American people.”

The quick move toward the U.N. vote has also angered rank-and-file Republicans, with Sens. David Perdue (R-Ga.) saying that it makes it seem like the administration “always intended to bypass Congress by moving through the United Nations.”

Cruz is threatening to block nominees and funding for the State Department unless the administration prevents the U.N. Security Council from voting on the resolution on the nuclear deal, which could happen as early as Monday.

One of Cruz’s rivals for the GOP nomination, Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.), also blasted the administration, suggesting that Obama is taking the deal to the United Nations first because he knows Congress will ultimately reject the deal.

Obama is a cancer in the body of America. He should be dealt with the same as you would a cancer in the human body - eradication.

I'd like to see fists fly in Congress!  Oblamea needs taken and hauled out in chains, along with his inner circle of minions.

These idiots have been letting him bypass them at every turn. Of course he thinks he can go to the UN and stick it to them again. Exactly what have they fought him on. They rolled over on everything.

Congress needs to get off it's ass and do something NOW!!! Impeached the bastard TODAY not TOMORROW!!!!

Blah. Blah. Blah.  Congress:  all talk and no action.

WHO DOES THE CORRUPT CONGRESS THINK THEY ARE,............TRYING TO OPPOSE "HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY." If the congress, really was interested in supporting the American People, they would IMMEDIATELY WITHDRAW FROM THE UN, DRIVE THEM FROM OUR SHORES, AND DISPOSE OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM, AND RETURN TO A CONSTITUTIONAL BANKING SYSTEM. But they are making TOO much so called MONEY, FROM THE UNDER THE TABLE BOUGHT OFF SYSTEM, JUST THE WAY IT IS.

I thought that the constitution required that the president should never be able to bypass the congress in doing a treaty with anyone else

the senate should cut all funding for the un as well as have the usa drop out of the un

Shit for Brains is doing it again going around Congress, of course Congress doesn't have any backbone either. Congress tell the UN to piss up a rope they can't run their countries don't tell us how to run ours.

Why is this muslim P.O.S. still drawing a breath!

Good question?

Hey Congress, face reality, you are all irrelevant in Barry Hussein's (pbuh) world. I have reached the conclusion that this deal with Iran, the cutting of ties with Israel, and the destruction of the US has been his agenda since he was elected. It is no coincidence that Val Jarrett, and Iranian, is his chief adviser.

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
