We are today fighting in Libya, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, as the War Party works to confront Beijing in the South China Sea, Russia in Ukraine, and North Korea over its nuclear and missile tests. Could we perhaps put the confrontation with Iran on hold?
History tells us that the idea of bringing your political enemies into your inner councils is the pathway to failure. Donald Trump must make a clean break with the Republican Quislings, like Mitt Romney and Bob Corker, who enabled Obama to advance his agenda.
In pursuit of his “legacy” treaty with Iran, Obama resorted to telling lie after lie to sell something that if the truth were revealed would never be accepted by the American people – and his indispensable partner in selling the lies was Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee.
Senator Bob Corker and his former staffers are the ones who labor under “a fundamental misunderstanding of the Constitution and the relative powers of Congress and the president in foreign policy.” That, at least, is the most charitable interpretation of their claims. Those claims were specious when first posited. They have grown only more risible with time.
Fortunately, for America and for those who voted for Trump because of his stated goal of undoing the Obama – Clinton foreign policy blunders, such as the disastrous Iran nuclear deal, we have assurance from our friend Fred Fleitz that Trump hasn’t abandoned his plans to dump the Iran deal.
Fox News’ award winning chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge observed in an appearance on Greta Van Susteren’s “On the Record” that the email exchange was almost office gossip in nature. Which begs the question what kind of judgement was Clinton exercising in gossiping about classified information via email hosted on her unsecured server?
As soon as conservatives such as Richard Viguerie started speaking out against Tennessee Senator Bob Corker’s potential candidacy, the establishment ran in the other direction. Corker’s exit is great news for Trump and improves his prospects of uniting and exciting conservatives going into the Republican National Convention.
By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
If there’s one thing worse than ignoring the conservative agenda, it is claiming to support it and then betraying it, and in that regard Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee stands alone in infamy among those suggested as a potential running mate for Donald Trump. I urge all of my conservative friends to let Donald Trump know that we conservatives believe choosing Bob Corker as his running mate would crash Trump’s campaign and that it is time to just say NO to Bob Corker for Vice President.
Republican Senator Robert Corker of Tennessee has betrayed American interests and the interests of our allies in the greater Middle East. From Israel, to Saudi Arabia, to India no nation now within the range of Iran’s fast growing missile technology is secure from the threat of a nuclear armed Islamist Iran. And make no mistake – the combination of Iran’s expansionist Islamism and nuclear weapons technology is an existential threat to Western values and civilization.
After establishment Republican leaders and Democrats refused to allow Ted Cruz the courtesy of a roll-call vote on his motion to end taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood and the Iranian nuclear deal Cruz delivered a powerful speech on the Senate floor highlighting the many examples of Republican leadership surrendering to President Obama’s demands, and reminding the Republican Party’s Capitol Hill leadership to keep their promises to the American people.
Wednesday’s rally proved that the tea party movement is alive and well. Conservative radio show host Mark Levin, presidential candidates Donald Trump and Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Glen Beck, Sarah Palin and another 25 congressman joined the rally as inspirational speakers for the event. There is much more to do.
Grant Starrett, the principled limited government constitutional conservative candidate for the Republican nomination for Congress in Tennessee-4 reminds us that if Congress would simply follow the Constitution President Obama's disastrous nuclear weapons treaty with Iran would fail, and Congress still has an opportunity to get it right.
A full-scale revolt against House Speaker Rep. John Boehner—including a looming resolution that could come up for a vote at any time that would remove him from the speakership—has thrown into disarray the House GOP leadership’s previously carefully laid plans to push President Obama’s nuclear arms deal with Iran through Congress without a fight.
Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson spoke at Wednesday’s anti-Iran nuclear deal rally and said he does not trust the regime in Iran but that he loves Israel because Israel gave the world the Bible. “Israel, the most faithful ally that we have. You know why I love Israel? They wrote the Bible. That's why I love them."
Ted Cruz called the Iran nuclear deal “catastrophic.” Donald Trump called America’s leaders “stupid.” Thousands of supporters cheered, braving scorching late-summer heat to rally against the Iran deal on the front lawn of Capitol Hill on Wednesday.
If Speaker Boehner and the other “leaders” of the House Republican Conference do not support Rep. Peter Roskam’s resolution it will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that they have been in on this scam from the beginning and they never had any intention of actually giving Obama’s nuclear weapons agreement with Iran the kind of careful review it merits.
The Republican establishment “leaders” who run Capitol Hill are notorious for not being able to walk and chew gum at the same time and appear to be genetically unable to deal with more than one major issue at a time. Please tell us which of these important issues Congress should deal with first; defunding Planned Parenthood, defeating the Obama – Corker Iran nuclear weapons deal, the Meadows resolution to oust Speaker Boehner or the need to pass appropriations to fund the federal government for the fiscal year starting October 1?
It never was likely that North Korea would yield up its nuclear weapons. But the Obama administration’s Libyan misadventure makes that prospect even less likely.
The great – and most important message of a Trump – Cruz media event on the Iran nuclear weapons deal isn’t that two Republican presidential candidates are against it; it is that the two populist conservative message carriers are going to get together to let the American people know that we have been betrayed by Obama and the Capitol Hill Republican leadership.
Cruz acknowledged it is a “close legal question,” but that there is some precedent for such action. “Actually, the seminal case that would support the states doing that is a case called Medellín vs. Texas,” Cruz explained. “I’m kind of a little familiar with that case, because I argued and won the case.”
