Iran Deal Looks Like It's Going to Happen

Another U.S. Senator came forward today to announce she will support Team Obama's nuclear deal with Iran.  This is important because she was the 34th Senator to say she will support it which means the remaining 66 Senators could not overthrow Obama's veto.

Is that confusing? won't be after you read the article.

President Barack Obama locked up enough U.S. Senate votes to protect the Iran nuclear deal in Congress as Maryland Democrat Barbara Mikulski said Wednesday she will support the agreement.

Mikulski’s backing guarantees that if Congress votes to disapprove the deal this month and Obama vetoes that measure as he has said he will, the president will have the 34 Senate votes to keep Republicans from overriding his action.

In a statement, Mikulski, who isn’t seeking re-election in 2016, said the agreement was “the best option available to block Iran from having a nuclear bomb.”

On Tuesday, announcements by Senators Chris Coons of Delaware and Bob Casey of Pennsylvania brought the president within one vote of the number he needed in the 100-member Senate.

The deal would ease economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbs on the country’s nuclear program. Obama has lobbied hard for Democratic support and has made pitches to U.S. Jewish leaders to counter opposition to the deal by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Two Senate Democrats are joining Republicans in opposing the agreement, while 10 haven’t announced a position. If Obama can gather 41 Senate votes by getting most of those Democrats on board, they could block the Senate from voting on the agreement at all.

The Republican-led Congress has until the end of the day Sept. 17 to pass a resolution disapproving the deal reached in July between six world powers and Iran. Overriding Obama’s promised veto would require a two-thirds vote in the House and Senate.

While Republicans have been united in opposing the agreement, only Senate Democrats Charles Schumer of New York, the third-ranking Democrat in the chamber, and Robert Menendez of New Jersey have joined them so far.

Among the Democrats yet to disclose a position are Maryland’s Ben Cardin, the top party member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and New Jersey’s Cory Booker.

The only uncertain Senate Republican vote is that of Susan Collins of Maine, who remains undecided and is expected to make her decision after Sept. 7.


Of course Iranian military officials were quick to come out with a statement on the entire matter....they screamed, "Death to America!  Death to Israel!!"

When Obama was told this he just smiled and said, "Oh those Mullahs and their generals....they are always saying that kind of stuff...but they are harmless and really don't mean it!"

The Democrats and Progressives are cheering wildly as the news is breaking because they believe this is PROOF that diplomacy can be used instead of military force!!

"Hey Iran?....can you pretty please not make a nuke bomb in the next few years?"

"Screw you!  Release all of our frozen assets and allow us to do our own nuclear inspections and we might tell you what you want to hear!"

"OK!!  You have yourself a deal!!  Now will you please tell all of our friends in the West that you won't build a nuclear bomb for at least 10 years?"

"Yes, it's true. (fingers crossed)  No bomb for 10 years!  Death to America!  Death to Israel!  Death to Great Satan!!  Death to Little Satan!"

"Oh goodness just feels SO GOOD to know that humans can use diplomacy to solve our problems.  And here's proof that the nice Iranian leaders really just want to be loved and respected....and when we give them that love and respect, can you see how wonderful and peaceful life can be?"

Of course Israel is not NOT happy with this deal Team Obama cooked up.  So will the deal avoid war or actually accelerate a war in the Middle East?

And even more important....does this deal America pushed through with Iran mean we are BLESSING ISRAEL or CURSING ISRAEL?

It's being reported that Gov. Chris Christie said that, going forward, every person killed by Iranian funded terrorism, their blood will be on Obama's head.
