The Obaminations are legion. They have to be fought immediately. We know that. We know that ObamaCare, illegal immigration amnesty, the Obama scandals, IRS targeting of citizens… these are all important issues Republicans must tackle as soon as possible.
But there is an issue of such paramount importance that it must go to the forefront in the battle against treacherous Barack Obama. This issue has the added benefit that it can be successfully fought and won because so many Obama Dimocrats will likely join with Republicans to fight Obama.
In audio obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security adviser to President Obama, said an Iran deal would be the Obamacare of the second term.
The Weekly Standard’s Steve Hayes spoke with Fox News about the implications of the Rhodes’ comments.
“It definitely gives you a sense of just how important the administration sees a deal with Iran.” Hayes said. “I mean, remember what the administration did to pass health care. They twisted arms, they gave favors. The president wasn’t going to take anything less than full, comprehensive health care reform.”
Rhodes touched on the developing strategy to accomplish such a deal by going behind Congress’s back: “We’re already kind of picking through how do we structure a deal so we don’t have to require legislative action. And there are ways to do that.”
This strong-arm strategy is already in play.
Coupled with Jeffrey Goldberg’s piece on the shattered U.S.-Israeli relationship, it is clear the Obama administration pressured Benjamin Netanyahu against launching preemptive airstrikes on Iranian nuclear facilities.
The Republican soon-to-be-majority in the U.S. Senate along with their fortified army in the House of Representatives must make it their top priority to defeat this Barack Obama fifth column move to assure that Iran acquire nuclear weapons.
Republicans in the House and Senate should move to defund any and all activities in the State Department, White House, Pentagon, in any and all agencies that plot to negotiate with Iran in any way without notification to the American Congress and approval by the Congress.
Barack Obama would threaten to veto, then veto, any such law passed by Congress. But we believe that even prominent Obama Dimocrats such as Senator Charles Schumer and Senator Robert Menendez would bolster Republicans and vote to override an Obama veto. Robert Menendez seeks to stop the threat to American security of a nuclear Iran:
WASHINGTON, DC. – U.S. Sens. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), joined by 25 U.S. Senators, introduced the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act, bipartisan legislation proposing prospective sanctions on Iran should the regime violate the interim Joint Plan of Action agreed to in Geneva or should Iran fail to reach a final agreement.
The legislation was co-sponsored by twenty-six senators, including: Senators Menendez, Kirk, Schumer, Graham, Cardin, McCain, Casey, Rubio, Coons, Cornyn, Blumenthal, Ayotte, Begich, Corker, Pryor, Collins, Landrieu, Moran, Gillibrand, Roberts, Warner, Johanns, Hagan, Cruz, Donnelly, Blunt and Booker.
The prospective sanctions legislation requires further reductions in purchases of Iranian petroleum and applies additional penalties to strategic elements of the Iranian economy, to include the engineering, mining and construction sectors.
The Menendez legislation was proposed before the treacherous audio recording of Obama henchman Benjamin Rhodes was uncovered. By now any friend of Israel must understand that the greatest threat to Israel and American interests is Barack Obama:
“Bottom line is, this is the best opportunity we’ve had to resolve the Iranian issue diplomatically, certainly since President Obama came to office, and probably since the beginning of the Iraq war,” Rhodes said. “So no small opportunity, it’s a big deal. This is probably the biggest thing President Obama will do in his second term on foreign policy. This is healthcare for us, just to put it in context.” [snip]
Rhodes also said the White House wants to avoid congressional scrutiny of any deal.
“We’re already kind of thinking through, how do we structure a deal so we don’t necessarily require legislative action right away,” Rhodes said. “And there are ways to do that.”
That is similar to what an unnamed senior administration official told David Sanger of the New York Times last week for a piece headlined “Obama Sees an Iran Deal That Could Avoid Congress”: “We wouldn’t seek congressional legislation in any comprehensive agreement for years.”
The interim deal with Iran struck in November 2013, in which the administration traded sanctions relief worth billions of dollars for promises to limit nuclear fuel production, was extended in July and is now scheduled to lapse on November 24. [snip]
Fear that the chances of some sort of dangerous and misguided détente with Iran are high, and that they increase if Republicans capture the Senate and improve their majority in the House. Fear that the worse things get for Obama at home, the better the odds that he will hand the keys of the Middle East to Ayatollah Khamenei.
Fear that Obama sees an Iran deal not just as health care reform for the second term, but as his version of George W. Bush’s surge: a Hail Mary pass thrown in the fourth quarter in a long-shot attempt to salvage a legacy.
Iran is Obama’s Iraq. It occupies the same place in the thinking of his administration that Iraq held in his predecessor’s. The desire for détente with Iran, for comity and diplomatic accord between longtime enemies, for a new Middle East in which security is left to regional stakeholders, and Shiite and Sunni alike see the United States as “evenhanded” in its treatment of Israelis and Palestinians, holds immense sway over the alliance of progressives and realists that conduct American foreign policy. It has for a decade.
“The support group should actively engage Iran and Syria in its diplomatic dialogue, without preconditions,” stated the report of the 2006 Iraq Study Group, authored in part by Ben Rhodes. [snip]
Can’t you just see Obama and Jarrett, kicking back after a few glasses of Bordeaux at Restaurant Helen, rhapsodizing over the president’s unique perspective on the global south, quoting lines from Argo, visualizing the day he makes the first presidential visit to Tehran since Carter? For six years the White House has been careful not to provide the Iranians with any reason to reject negotiations, to prevent his fantasy from becoming real. To the contrary: It has been solicitous of Iran and Syria, in a demonstration of its willingness to address their grievances. [snip]
These decisions are not made in light of the national security interests of the United States. They are made to keep alive President Obama’s dream of peace with Iran. And the purpose of these decisions isn’t to mollify American politicians. It’s to satisfy Iranian ones.
A nuclear Iran is an existential threat to Israel and the United States.
A nuclear Iran could not only instigate an Holocaust which would erase Israel, a nuclear Iran would blackmail the entire Middle East and choke vital resources from the West. That is why the issue of a nuclear Iran should be the linchpin in a Republican strategy against Barack Obama.
Once Obama’s back is broken on the nuclear Iran issue, more and more Obama Dimocrats will leave his grasp and vote to override more vetoes. A well developed strategy by Republican friends of Israel could bring together two-thirds of the House and two-thirds of the Senate to oppose Obama.
This must be done and it must be done before November 24 or as soon as Republicans ascend to leadership in the new Congress.
According to the NYT: Obama doesn’t feel “repudiated” by crushing defeat of his party. Barack Obama must be educated that indeed he has been “repudiated” and is now an object of scorn an ridicule (as an astounding article of Obama Dimocrats mocking Obama proves). Breaking his hands on foreign policy and particularly on negotiations with Iran is the best and most necessary way to school him.
On Tuesday night Barack Obama was repudiated by the American people. Victories for Republicans came in some of the most unlikely places. On Tuesday night Obama was ‘deserted by Latinos, blacks and his feckless lazy Millennial supporters’. Still Obama does not feel “repudiated”.
On Tuesday night every single one of Barack Obama’s policies went down to defeat.
We hope for change. The place for Republicans to start, the first place to bring needed change is Iran policy. From there more majorities can be crafted to override Obama vetoes.
Barack Obama has been repudiated by the American people. Now the American congress must forcefully teach Barack Obama that he will not be allowed to destroy America. Or Israel.
