Obama Loses the Sunni Arabs

The Wall Street Journal

The promise of a successful nuclear deal with Iran is that it will stop nuclear proliferation, moderate Tehran’s behavior, make the Middle East a safer place, and perhaps allow the U.S. to play a less active role in a troublesome region. Try telling that to the Arab leaders who were supposed to visit the White House and Camp David this week, but are now finding a reason not to show up.

White House summit is no summit: 4 of 6 countries not sending top leaders

Anita Kumar, McClatchy Washington Bureau

Though the meeting is being billed as a summit – a meeting of top leaders – only two of the six Gulf counties will send their leaders, Qatar and Bahrain. Obama and representatives of the so-called Gulf Cooperation Council will meet Thursday to discuss a series of issues, including combating the Islamic State, the troublesome situations in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, and the deal struck by the U.S. and five other nations to limit Iran’s nuclear program.

Saudi King Skips Obama Meeting Over Iran Deal

Helene Cooper, New York Times

Saudi Arabia announced on Sunday that its new monarch, King Salman, would not be attending meetings at the White House with President Obama or a summit gathering at Camp David this week, in an apparent signal of its continued displeasure with the administration over United States relations with Iran, its rising regional adversary.

Sen. Cruz: Congress Must Stop Obama's Bad Iran Deal

“If history teaches any principle with abundant clarity it is that if somebody tells you they want to kill you, believe them," said Senator Ted Cruz about the Obama - Corker Iran deal. We urge you to call your Senators (1-866-220-0044) and tell them "Don't have a fig leaf vote and let the President's bad deal go into effect that undermines our national security. Have a meaningful vote that requires the affirmative approval of Congress." Join us in urging the Senate to defeat the Corker bill or adopt the Cruz-Toomey amendment which is a commonsense fix that will give this bill real teeth by removing the resolution of disapproval and instead would allow an Iran deal to go into effect only if Congress approves it.

The Video On Iran’s Bomb You’ve Got To See: #NoIranBombBonus

Britain has informed a United Nations sanctions panel of an active Iranian nuclear procurement network linked to two blacklisted firms. Yet the Obama administration, desperate to get a deal - any deal - with Iran has been politicizing intelligence and hiding the facts of iran's nuclear weapons and missile programs from Congress and the American people. Please watch this powerful video from our friends at Secure Freedom and then tell your Senators and Representative #NoIranBombBonus.

The Depth of Republican Perfidy on Obama’s Iran Nuclear Weapons Deal

Ben Weingarten of The Blaze has joined us in terming Obama's nuclear weapons deal with Iran, and the Corker bill to implement it, as treason. Yet a small, but decisive, group of establishment Republicans has joined with Democrats to defeat common sense amendments to Corker’s “Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015” and, turning almost 40 years of U.S. policy on its head, all but assure that Iran acquires nuclear weapons. The one alternative to the guaranteed acceptance of Iran’s nuclear weapons program through the Corker bill is an amendment to that bill offered by Senators Ted Cruz and Pat Toomey. We urge conservatives to contact their Senators and Representative (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to demand they vote for the Cruz-Toomey amendment to the Corker bill and against the Corker bill if Cruz-Toomey does not pass.

Kill Corker’s disastrous Iran bill

Marc A. Thiessen, The Washington Post

The Iran deal is a disaster. No, I’m not talking about the nuclear agreement President Obama is negotiating with Tehran (though that is a disaster, too), but rather the Iran deal that Obama cut with Congress. The Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act that Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) negotiated with Obama comes up for a vote in the Senate this week. It is a terrible bill that virtually guarantees that Congress will give its de facto stamp of approval to any agreement Obama concludes with Iran.

None Dare Call Them Treason: Obama’s Iran Nuclear Weapons Deal & the Corker Bill

When asked what the lesson of the first Gulf War was General S.F.Rodrigues, formerly Chief of Staff of the Indian Army said, "Don't fight the Americans without nuclear weapons." The corollary to that observation is “You don’t seek nuclear weapons unless you plan to fight the United States.” So what should you call a group of Americans who are acting in concert to throw away America’s “unassailable lead” in military power over Iran if not traitors?

Cruz: Congress Must Approve Any Iran Deal

Senators Ted Cruz and Pat Toomey

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pennsylvania, have filed an amendment (#1152) to the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, which would require affirmative Congressional approval of any Iranian nuclear deal before sanctions relief can occur.

Fox News Poll: Obama 'too soft' in negotiating with Iran, deal won’t work

Dana Blanton, Fox News

More voters than not think President Barack Obama is giving away too much in the nuclear talks with Iran -- and that it’s pointless to make a deal with Iran anyway. By a 51-34 percent margin, voters think Obama is “being too soft” rather than “striking the right balance” in talks with Iran. Democrats think Obama is striking the right balance by a 27-point margin.  Republicans (by 69 points) and independents (by 17 points) say he is being too soft.  

Republican Senator Bob Corker Is A Traitor

In caving to Obama on the Iran nuclear weapons treaty, Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee has betrayed the constitutional principle of Senate advice and consent on treaties. The world will be a much more dangerous place for his inexplicable failure to grasp the existential threat a nuclear armed Islamic Republic of Iran poses. And in that willful blindness he has betrayed the United States and all peoples across the globe who share the values of freedom of conscience, freedom of religion and freedom of speech. 

Obama’s One-Man Nuclear Deal

Wall Street Journal Editorial

President Obama says he wants Congress to play a role in approving a nuclear deal with Iran, but his every action suggests the opposite. After months of resistance, the White House said Tuesday the President would finally sign a bill requiring a Senate vote on any deal—and why not since it still gives him nearly a free hand.

Will Senate Reclaim Constitutional Power Over Iran Nuke Treaty?

FoxNews.com

How much say Congress has on a possible nuclear deal with Iran will be tested Tuesday as a controversial bill goes up for a vote in the Senate Foreign Relations committee. The Obama administration has been very critical of legislation that would give Congress a final say in approving or rejecting a deal.

We're Going with the Ayatollah on this One

When Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says Obama is “lying” about the proposed terms of the nuclear deal, being “deceptive,” and having “devilish” intentions, this is one time we’ve got to go with the Ayatollah. 

Obama’s Latest National Security Fraud

Frank Gaffney, Center for Security Policy

Critics have persuasively warned that what’s emerged is a “bad deal.”  President Obama and his partisans insist that it’s “better than no deal.” But, the real question is “what deal”? We don’t actually have a single text of an agreement.

Who to Believe: Obama or the Ayatollahs?

There is no “agreement” on anything of substance, and what’s more, if one compares the statements of the Iranians with that of the Europeans and Americans there are starkly contradictory narratives being pushed by Obama to sell the treaty. We urge you to use the hashtag #AprilFoolsDeal in social media to tell your friends and contacts to contact their Senators and Representative to demand Congress stop this folly before Iran has a nuclear weapon.

Congress needs more details on Iran nuclear deal

David Willman, LA Times

Wth the exact details of a nuclear agreement with Iran still being debated, a prominent Senate Republican said Sunday that Congress should insist on learning more before deciding whether to support any final accord. Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he will seek the panel’s vote as early as April 14 on his proposal to prohibit President Obama from suspending economic sanctions against Iran for 60 days while Congress reviews the matter.
