Subject: Obama bankrolls Iranian war machine
Americans languish in Iranian prisons, U.S. Navy military personnel are captured by Iranian naval forces, Congress ignores the Constitution, with respect to treaties, and Obama makes a one-
sided “deal” with Iran, the chief sponsor of global Muslim terrorism. Deal, my friend? Is this not a ‘treaty’ in the strictest sense of the word? Is there not a constitutionally prescribed process for making treaties? I refer to Article II, Section 2.
“He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur…“
The understanding I have from reading our Constitution is the president doesn’t get to make deals; the Constitution limits his authority to making treaties “with the Advice and Consent of the Senate”.
Iranian leadership advances the development of nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles said to soon be able to reach American soil. This president’s “deal” will provide Iran with necessary billions of dollars to carry out the stated goal to destroy the United States of America and Israel.
Where is Republican leadership, John? Why is there no outcry in Congress? Why is there no call to impeach this lawless tyrant, Barack Obama? What’s being done to stop Obama’s funding of our own destruction?
Judging from his final State of the Union speech, this sitting president obviously values his ego, his flawed legacy, more than the common welfare of fellow Americans.
