Appeasing Iran Ignores the Lessons of History

Victor Davis Hanson, NRO

A few years from now – after Iran has used its negotiated breathing space to rearm, ratchet up its terrorist operations, and eventually gain a bomb to blackmail its neighbors – the current deal will be deeply regretted. Expect a Nobel Peace Prize for Secretary of State John Kerry now, followed by Chamberlain-like infamy later.

Why Arab allies are worried over the Iran nuclear deal

CBS News

While many believe a more transparent Iran will reduce tensions in the Middle East, CBS News correspondent Charlie D'Agata says some of the nations within reaching distance of the Islamic Republic don't buy that the nuclear deal reached Tuesday will stop Iran from building an atomic bomb, and they worry and the country's massive financial windfall could tip a delicate power balance.

The Iran Deal’s Fatal Flaw

Alan J. Kuperman, The New York Times

PRESIDENT OBAMA’S main pitch for the pending nuclear deal with Iran is that it would extend the “breakout time” necessary for Iran to produce enough enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon. Unfortunately, that claim is false, as can be demonstrated with basic science and math. By my calculations, Iran’s actual breakout time under the deal would be approximately three months — not over a year. Thus, the deal would be unlikely to improve the world’s ability to react to a sudden effort by Iran to build a bomb.

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.

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.

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.

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 is waging an all-out campaign for non-existant Iran deal

LESLEY CLARK, MCCLATCHY WASHINGTON BUREAU

Even as Iran’s supreme leader suggested another hurdle to a nuclear deal Thursday, President Barack Obama and his administration waged an aggressive coordinated campaign to stop Congress from interfering. Making his first public comments on the deal, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the deal would be signed in late June only if economic sanctions are lifted at once – not in phases as the Obama administration insists.

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.

The Danger and Folly of Obama’s #AprilFoolsDeal With Iran

While Obama may ignore our Constitution and our laws, it is foolish and dangerous in the extreme to assume, and to base a nuclear treaty on that assumption, that the world’s number one state sponsor of terrorism will ignore the call for worldwide jihad in their Constitution and in Islamic law.

Sen Tom Cotton: 'no regrets at all' on Iran Letter

Alexander Bolton, The Hill

Cotton told CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday that he has “no regrets at all” and accused President Obama of “not negotiating for the hardest deal possible.” He argued that if Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are trying to drive the toughest possible deal, they would be glad to point to Cotton’s letter — which 46 other Senate Republicans signed — to gain leverage in the talks.

Cruz: Obama Cannot Defend A Deal To Allow Iran To Acquire Nuclear Weapons

Sen. Ted Cruz & Hugh Hewitt

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, spoke about the dangerous repercussions of a nuclear deal with Iran on the “Hugh Hewitt Show” last night and we've got a link to the audio!

Sen. Cotton: Why we wrote the letter to Iran

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR)

The Obama administration has so far completely bypassed Congress in its negotiations with Iran. It appears the deal President Obama is negotiating with Iran will not be a good one. In fact, if reports are correct, it will be a bad one that will ultimately allow Iran to continue its nuclear program and ultimately develop a nuclear weapon. Our constituents elected us to the Senate, in part, to protect them from bad agreements like this and to help ensure their safety and security. And that is what we intend to do.

Kerry to GOP Senate: you cannot modify Iran-U.S. nuclear deal

Lesley Wroughton, Reuters

Secretary of State John Kerry told Republicans who control Congress on Wednesday they would not be able to modify any nuclear agreement struck between the United States and Iran. But Sen. Rand Paul told Kerry that any deal would need approval by Congress if it affected U.S. sanctions against Iran.

CONSERVATIVE ACTION ALERT: Secure America Now Features CHQ #47Patriots In Social Media Campaign

The campaign, in support of the 47 Republican Senators who wrote an open letter to Iran's leaders, is intended to built grassroots support for the the 47 who are being attacked mercilessly in the media for opposing an agreement that puts Iran on course to build a nuclear weapon, and is being negotiated in secret in flagrant violation of ARTICLE II, SECTION 2, CLAUSE 2 of the Constitution that requires the President to submit treaties to the Senate for its advise and consent. We urge you to support Sen.

Battle erupts over GOP letter to Iran

Greg Jaffe and Juliet Eilperin, The Washington Post

Forty-seven Republican senators, signed a letter to Iran’s leaders threatening to undo any agreement reached with the United States regarding their country’s nuclear program. The reaction from Washington’s foreign policy establishment was that President Obama’s authority as commander in chief had been challenged in a new and unprecedented way.

McConnell postpones Iran vote

Burgess Everett & Manu Raju, POLITICO

Mitch McConnell is postponing a vote on the Senate’s Iran legislation in the face of an expected Democratic filibuster. The Senate majority leader has decided to delay a Tuesday vote on legislation that would allow Congress to approve or reject any nuclear agreement that global powers reach to scale back Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
