  • Feingold all in on Obama nuclear deal with Iran (barf alert)

    Wisconsin Watchdog ^ | 1-19-16 | M. D. Kittle
    MADISON, Wis. - Former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold spent part of his first interview of the election year defending President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran - a deal most Americans are leery about, to say the least. The Democrat, who is running against U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson to reclaim the seat he lost in the 2010 Republican revolution, said it's only right to talk about the "great things the president has done." "He has accomplished some foreign policy goals we have had for a very long time," Feingold told Sherwin Hughes, host of "The Forum," Friday on Milwaukee's 860 AM,...

    The head of Iran's atomic energy organization announced on Tuesday that the Islamic Republic, with assistance from Russia and China, will move forward on the construction of two new nuclear power plants, according to comments published in Iranian state-controlled media. Ali Akbar Salehi, who heads the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, told Iranian reporters that construction on these new nuclear plants will begin in the "near future," according to Fars News Agency. "Construction of two 1000-MW power plants will start soon," Salehi was quoted as saying. "We will build two other small power plants too in cooperation with China," he...

    Saudi Arabia is not ruling out developing a nuclear bomb if its regional rival Iran obtains one, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told the Reuters news agency on Tuesday. Asked if Saudi Arabia had discussed seeking a nuclear bomb in the event Iran managed to obtain one, al-Jubeir replied the country would do "whatever we need to do in order to protect our people". "I don't think it would be logical to expect us to discuss any such issue in public and I don't think it would be reasonable to expect me to answer this question one way or another,"...

    We believe, based on comments made by two remarkable experts on this subject, Dr. Peter Pry of emptaskforce.org and Ambassador Hank Cooper of highfrontier.com, the latter of whom worked in the Reagan Administration, that Iran already has the bomb and is working on figuring out how to get it into a vehicle and send it our way. It will not, however deliver annihilation to any single city or cities in the conventional sense. That would be pointless, futile and suicidal. Instead, working together with North Korea, they will seek to take out our electric infrastructure and anything electronic via satellites...

    Unlike most of his fellow rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, real estate mogul Donald Trump would not rescind President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran. "I've heard a lot of people say, 'We're going to rip up the deal.' It's very tough to do when you say, 'Rip up a deal,'" Trump said Sunday on NBC's "Meet The Press." Instead, the businessman who is currently leading GOP polls in the race for the White House promised to "police" Iran to make sure the country doesn't break the terms of the agreement.

    Iran has removed the core of its heavy-water nuclear reactor in Arak and filled it with cement, the BBC reported on Monday, citing Iran’s semiofficial Fars news agency. The fate of the reactor was one of the sticking points in nuclear negotiations between Iran and the six world powers, which reached a deal in July of last year. Under the terms of the deal, Iran agreed the heavy-water reactor would be reconfigured so it was not capable of yielding material for a nuclear weapon. Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesperson for Iran's atomic energy agency, told the Etemad newspaper on Monday Iran...
  • Obama Admin: Congressional Crackdown on Terror Will Violate Iran Deal

    Senior Obama administration officials are expressing concern that congressional attempts to tighten laws preventing terrorists from entering the United States could violate the Iran nuclear agreement and prompt Tehran to walk away from the agreement. Congress is considering measures that would tighten the Visa Waiver Program to make it harder for potential terrorists to legally enter the United States by increasing restrictions on individuals who have travelled to countries with prominent terrorist organizations from bypassing security checks upon entering the United States.

    Iran did work related to developing nuclear arms in the past, the U.N. atomic agency concluded in a report Wednesday that wraps up a near decade of investigations and opens the way to implementing a landmark deal aimed at reducing any future nuclear threat from Tehran. Iran has consistently denied any interest in nuclear arms or past work on such weapons, and Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqhchi told Iranian television that the International Atomic Energy Agency report "confirms the peaceful nature" Iran's nuclear program. But the report contested that view and came down on the side of U.S. allegations,...

Security Council Resolution 1929, which stipulates that Iran cannot engage in any activities related to ballistic missiles.

    Sometime this week, President Obama is scheduled to sign an executive order to meet the Oct. 15 adoption day he has set for the nuclear deal he says he has made with Iran. According to the presidents timetable the next step would be the start day of implementation, fixed for Dec. 15. But as things now stand, Obama may end up being the only person in the world to sign his much-wanted deal, in effect making a treaty with himself. The Iranians have signed nothing and have no plans for doing so. The so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)...

"I express my hope that this agreement will be lasting and efficacious, and bring forth the desired fruits with the cooperation of all the parties involved," he said.

    Senate Democrats on Tuesday blocked a resolution disapproving the Iran nuclear deal for a second time, standing firm behind the signature foreign policy initiative of President Obamas second term. The Senate voted 56-42 for the Iran resolution, short of the 60 votes needed to move forward. Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), both candidates for president, didn't vote. Meanwhile, in a repeat of last week, Democratic Sens. Ben Cardin (Md.), Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Robert Menendez (N.J.) and Charles Schumer (N.Y.) bucked Obama to oppose the Iran agreement.

Yet President Barack Obama clinched a huge victory on the Iran nuclear deal in Congress this past week when Senate Democrats blocked GOP attempts to get a disapproval resolution to his desk and frustrated House Republicans settled for passing two related measures destined to go nowhere. The outcome was especially notable for a White House with a history of bungling legislative initiatives on Capitol Hill, and a president known for a hands-off relationship with lawmakers, even his own Democrats.

    A senior Senate Republican leadership source reached out to discuss the case I laid out this morning concerning a possible path to breaking Democrats' Iran deal filibuster. He said Majority Leader McConnell will schedule another cloture vote early next week, likely on Tuesday. If and when that fails (assuming none of the 42 filibustering Democrats relent), GOP leadership is considering a number of options, including forcing votes on one or more highly-charged amendments related to the Iran deal. This maneuver would respond to Democrats' politicized posturing in kind, contriving scenarios in which filibuster-sustaining votes would be politically painful to cast,...

    Secretary of State John Kerry predicted on Thursday that nine in 10 Americans would back President Obamas nuclear deal with Iran once it has been in place for a year or more. The fact is, a lot of polls show that the country actually supports it, and thats a fairly even divide, Kerry said of enthusiasm for the agreement now, according to The Huffington Post. I think thats pretty good, considering the amount of money thats spent with myths being promulgated. If Iran destroys its Arak plutonium reactor core, filing it with cement, and it exists no longer, and Arak...

    Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) has given President Obama the final vote necessary to secure victory for his controversial nuclear agreement with Iran.

    Thus ends a breathtaking performance of Republican failure theater. Once upon a time, knowing that your party controlled both chambers of Congress would have given you great comfort that a terrible treaty negotiated with a terrorist power could never become law in the United States. I think this makes it official: Im on the Trump bandwagon. Hail Caesar. Whatd the GOP get out of all this? What did their huge advantage in the House and their eight-seat majority in the Senate ultimately amount to in terms of concessions? Its one thing to lose a momentous fight on foreign policy, ceding...

    Deal will never be forgotten in the Middle East Dick Cheney called the Obama administrations nuclear deal with Iran a train wreck that will never be forgotten and characterized it as a betrayal of U.S. allies in the Middle East during an interview with the Washington Free Beacon on Tuesday. I cannot explain [President Obamas] motives other than he thinks this is going to be a great legacy for his presidency, said Cheney. I think its going to be a train wreck, and hes not going to want to claim it down the road. Hell have to find a way...

    Many Americans rightly watch in disbelief as leaders of our country push to conclude a dangerous and ill-conceived nuclear agreement with an incorrigible and evil nation, a leading sponsor of terrorism. Since when does the United States negotiate out of fear, out of weakness? But this is what is happening. How else to explain moving forward with a deal this complicated and dangerous with people no rational person would trust? Abrogation of American leadership, meaning America acting in an unprincipled and cowardly way, leads inevitably to a world more dangerous and less free. We should be ashamed. Many have already...
