Schumer's opposition to Iran nuclear deal "signals the end of the Obama era"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

While a record number of Americans were tuned in to the FOX News Republican debate, something noteworthy happened: Powerful and influential Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer came out against Obama's nuclear deal with Iran.

This is a huge development.

In Canadian terms, this would be like Jason Kenney announcing he was going to vote against one of Harper's most important bills, and laying out convincing reasons why.

Among other things, Schumer says the deal's inspection provisions are a joke, and Iran can't be trusted.

He's right.

He proposes some sane, sensible alternatives to the deal, too.

This move gave other Democrats cover to come out against the deal as well.

One other thing: Schumer is Jewish, and that matters.

I explain why.

I just read a headline; “D’s carve up no votes based on constituency”…
It really seems rather obvious to me.

This Iran deal will be part of the reason why Obama will go down in history as the worst President ever. Unfortunately it will take about 50 years for the world to realize it.

Has it occurred to anyone that Sen Schumer has been given permission to vote against the treaty because the Obama admin has calculated that even if every R votes against they still need 13 D’s to override a veto? This way, Schumer can come back to NY and tell his Jewish base that he did the right thing, just not enough other Senators were willing to say no. This type of calculation is done on legislation all the time by R’s and D’s.

Thanks for that link, T. Black. It’s quite shocking to hear a US General calling Obama’s actions and foreign policies treasonous. I’ve been saying that all along on this site, but I’m not a public figure, and I’m not living in the USA. Nobody cares what I think so I’m in no danger (I hope). I would think words like that would paint a giant bulls eye on the General’s back. But hats off to the General, he doesn’t sound too intimidated. Obama definitely should be impeached, or more accurately, he should be arrested for treason. But it’s not going to happen.

This deal is done, it’s true. But maybe it’s an okay deal, given the alternatives.

Under Rouhani, American business has again begun to invest in Iran. With sanctions lifted, those business partnerships will be strengthened. Good trade has the power to move as many mountains as a dying Ayatollah.

Israel has the technological advantage, including software that can hack computers that are offline. It can determine when, if necessary, it must strike to stop being the target of a nuclear attack, i.e., when and if Iran is about to develop a weapon.

In the meantime, when the Ayatollah dies, it may be possible, on the basis of strengthened business relations, to usher in a more moderate government in Iran.

Alan Blanes – Good points.

Unfortunately, the end of the Obama era won’t come fast enough to prevent the end of the American era, thanks to the foibles, fumbles, and ego-driven catastrophic mistakes of the worst President in American history, BHO.

Schumer and all those who don’t think that having a decade breathing space where Iran is engaged, had better have a coherent idea of how to use force to contain Iran instead. The NATO use of force in other neighbouring countries, Afghanistan, Libya, etc, has proven to be counterproductive – and only bred enemies. At present, the people on the street in Iran are pro-American. They are tired of the mullah ignorance. Having to use force instead of diplomacy may drive them into an anti-American position. Schumer needs to give this some more thought.

Bravo Senator Schumer and thanks Ezra for informing us!

It’s about time the leaders and senators started standing up for what they believe…

But, but, but….Jack Black said it was a good deal?

Obama is as treacherous, treasonous and as dangerous as they come – I wouldn`t call him a Lame Duck I`d keep an eye on him and his discrete bosses!
Take a listen to this video clip!
US General Calls For Obama’s Immediate Arrest ‘Treasonous Activities’
PrissyHolly 07/07/2015
Although anyone with half a functioning brain cell can see that Obama is a domestic threat to the United States of America, it’s always refreshing when a high-ranking member of the military agrees, and uses their platform to speak out Obama’s treasonous activities.

In a radio interview with The Real Side, Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Paul E. Vallely stated that Obama should be immediately “arrested for treasonous activities,” stating above anything else that he should be held accountable for his continual pandering to the Muslim Brotherhood, in particular his shady actions surrounding the Benghazi scandal.

this POtuS is still trying to create a crisis that will allow him to try and remain in power.. i believe that that has been his number 1 goal from the start..

Wow a Yankee democrat that is listening to the majority of Americans, who would of thunk it.

The cracks in this corrupt administration are beginning. How will Obama react? Like a dictator?
commented 2015-08-08 13:04:06 -0400
Obama will simply use his veto powers to ram this deal through, irregardless of the wishes of the American people! He is vying to be names as top dog at the UN!
