Allen West “Here’s what every single member of Congress should be FORCED to do before voting on Iran deal”

Allen West “Here’s what every single member of Congress should be FORCED to do before voting on Iran deal”

Written By Allen B. West:

The possibility of a vote on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) this week is high. Congress returns from August recess and the Labor Day holiday today. On Wednesday, there will be a large rally on the Capitol steps in opposition to the Iranian nuclear deal. Needless to say, the rally will bring this issue front and center for the House and Senate this week.

What I find rather interesting is the lack of honest debate the progressive socialist left wishes to have on this issue. Recently, head of the Democrat National Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla,) gave full support and endorsement to the JCPOA. Why?

Needless to say, there are plenty of fact-based reasons as to why not support the JCPOA. And Iran just gave us another. As reported in the Israel National News, Arutz Sheva:

Iranian Defense Minister says US ‘obeyed’ Iran’s dictates; Supreme Leader’s website boasts of Iran’s new status as military power.

Iranian leaders view the nuclear deal signed by western powers as a “surrender” to Iran, and as cementing the Islamic Republic’s status as a “superpower.” 

An analysis by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has shed light on the sense of victory held by Iran’s most senior leadership, as neighboring countries prepare for a surge in terrorism sponsored by an emboldened Tehran. 

Among the comments translated by MEMRI was a statement made by Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan at an armed forces general command ceremony on August 30, in which he boasted that Iran had forced the “surrender” of the world’s superpowers, led by the US. 

“Today, Iran has attained such status that the superpowers have surrendered to it, because of its majesty, its steadfastness, its resistance, and its unity. Despite their great pride, the regime of the arrogance [the West, led by the U.S.] sat humbly behind the negotiating table and obeyed the rights of the Iranian nation,” he said. 

Less than a week earlier, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei’s official website published a poster hailing the ascendancy of Iran as a regional hegemony.

And how has all of this been made possible? By one President Barack Obama and one Secretary of State John Kerry — their abject emboldening of the enemy.

Of course, the rhetorical response will be Iran’s leaders are just propagating their propaganda — and so did Adolf Hitler leading up to World War II, as he restored German pride in the post-Weimar Republic era. And even in Russia today, the popularity ratings for Vladimir Putin are strong, despite a slow economy.

There’s something about demagoguery which elevates dictatorial-like leaders. People, often in a depressed state, are looking for a cause around which to rally and feel a sense of national pride. It’s happened before in the past, it can happen again — check, it IS happening again. Iran’s militant Islamist leaders know exactly how to deflect and portray themselves as the victors. Here in America, we have politicians too concerned with spreading a false narrative that displays their reticence and loss of the moral high ground.

Here’s a picture of the poster on Ayatollah Khamenei’s website, entitled the “Iron Fist” ……

    Just as our elected representatives did on Obamacare and other bills, they couldn’t be bothered to read the bill, they just took Obama’s word that it was a “good” bill…

    • Da’BULL

      And…the infamous words of Nasty Piglosi, ” We have to pass it to see whats in it…”. Disgusting basturds, all of them commie socialist progressive libtards.

      • Nunnyah Biz

        When they open it up to “see what’s in it”, it gonna go BOOM!

  • Nunnyah Biz

    This is just the epitome of STUPID, or a blatant Act of Treason……………..I’m thinking BOTH!

    I’m sorry, but I’m an old fart and my education and upbringing was based upon a sense of logic and common sense, but I see none here!

    Our gov’t. is just going to sit back and wait for our enemies to build weapons to destroy us??? Can’t get much more TREASONOUS than that!

    This is just going to get worse and worse! There is no stopping it now!

    And for those “Benedicts” that are allowing the muslims to use them, they are in for a real surprise……………………….when they are used up!

    This is the old “Follow The Money” story. Politicians on both sides of the aisle get generous donations from various special interest lobbies. There are Congressman and Senators Jumping on The President’s Iran band wagon who also got PAC money from Iran Lobbies.

    Senators Markey, Franken, Shaheen and Gilliabrand have all received PAC money from the Iran Lobby in hopes of their support in the deal. They will vote YES on the deal. Senator Mikulski Has already confirmed that this is her last term and is retiring. She couldn’t care less what her constituents say one way or another. Senator Coons isn’t up for reelection until 2020. Senator Casey isn’t up for reelection until 2018. My guess is that both of them are gambling on the strong possibility that their constituents will have forgotten about all this by then. The only one I know of that has taken Iran PAC money but is voting against it is Senator Schumer but he isn’t fooling anyone. He wants to take over as Democrat Party Leader when Dirty Harry Read retires next year and doesn’t want to risk losing the Jewish vote. If he wasn’t up for reelection, I believe he would be on that band wagon with the rest of the lap dogs.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if quite a few others voting for the Deal, to include Republicans, have received PAC money from the Iran Lobby. They are all laughing all the way to the bank. All they care about is this $$$ and the next election so what is best for the country and the people they represent may be way down on their priority list if it is there at all. This is what we get with professional politicians. We still have the best politicians money can buy.

    Obama wants this deal because he’s nothing more than a Muslim Butt Sucker as are the DemoCraps that follow him, he wants Iran to have a bomb, Obama is about as much an American as Kim Jong-Un, and his DemoCrap followers are going to be signing our Death Warrants, I’m going to get a copy of there votes on this deal, and when Iran shoots a Nuke at us I’m posting it online so the whole Country will know who the real traitors of America are, and then we can deal with them like the Traitors they are, and we all know what happens to Traitors that cause the Deaths of Americans, I only hope we have enough rope for all of them.. Obama and his DemoCrap Zoo Crew have done nothing but SCREW THIS COUNTRY SINCE THE DAY HE SAID I DOOO NOT

      Yep, so what does it take to impeach this scum muslim. Bill Clinton just had an affair???? And really who did that effect just Bill & Hillary. This is absolutely insane.

        Again according to the UCMJ, any person charged with a violation of the UCMJ with probable cause, which most of the articles brought forward in the two previous posts are beyond the standard f probable caused the individual should be arrested and detained until trial or dismissal of the charges. Bergdhal himself is in violation of because he “should be confined” in a secure facility waiting trial because his actions’ have proven by sworn testimony of eye witness accounts he deliberately and with full intent at the minimum abandoned his post while on duty jeopardizing the safety of his unit and other members by not remaining at his post until properly relieved. It is more than obvious that when serious charges are leveled I have no doubt he and his minions will vanish out of the US to avoid prosecution. One reason for taking them into custody immediately, then confined after the charges are read. ANY SITTING CONGRESSMAN who served as an officer has the right to formally read the charges and order the arrest and confinement to all parties involved. ANY MILITARY OFFICER can read the charges forcing an immediate arrest of those charged in which should result in immediate arrests and detainment to avoid flight and prosecution. The Nuremburg Trial as well as the Mei Lei Massacre established that following an illegal or inhumane commanded order does not make the subordinates immune from appropriate prosecution by violating the law. Even though orders of “genocide” or murder were issued from “top ranking commanders” those who carried out the actions down the chain of command where just as guilty and were prosecuted for their actions as were those who issued the order. More than likely this is one reason he is purging the upper chain of command from those who would follow the Uniform Code of Military Justice and the Constitution, replacing them with terrorist associated sympathizers and easily persuaded Commander who will follow the UN agenda ignore the UCMJ and the US Constitution as to their rightful and sworn duties. A general was asked by a Congressman who he took orders from the UN or Congress, you should have heard the excuses the General offered to avoid admitting he takes orders from the UN security council over the commands structure of Congress and the overall construct of the chain of command issued by the US Constitution and the UCMJ. I find it laughable that when ISIS advances its agenda it is reported in the media “ISIS top leader destroyed by Drone strike.” Once in awhile the “destroyed leader” name appears confirmed dead in separate strikes. Large columns of ISIS terrorists are shown moving on the open road photographed and videoed tape with impunity. I would call these targets of opportunity which have been micromanaged by this administration. Valerie Jarett is nothing more then a wet-nurse feeding the propaganda and supporting her agenda through the Muslim brotherhood who are branched off from the Hamas and other declared terrorist groups. They simply change their name but keep the same infrastructure and leadership. That way, that name is not on the terrorist list. “Bibi” has more than a few times proven he is a man of his word. If in the “details” (that have not been turned over to Congress for review according to Law) has a clause that we the United States will protect Iran’s nuclear assets, giving them billions of cash flow they have already stated publically along with Jarret the funds will be used to increase Iran’s “military” (terrorism) power. I am sure Israel will survive, but the majority of the middle east will be turned to glass. Then you wonder why so many are fleeing the region, along with what we saw here on the southern boarders being infiltrated by hardened trained terrorists hell-bent on killing everything that offends them without rhyme or reason. impeachment is the easiest part, the hard part will be the cleansing of those who serve the unconstitutional agenda establishing itself from the UN. I believe that entire structure needs to be pushed off this country into natural water. Having its structure on our soil shows support by allowing its existence. amongst all tis turmoil, I hope there is some time to reflect with honesty those lives lost in the first 9-11 attacks.

        809. ARTICLE 9. IMPOSITION OF RESTRAINT02. Apprehension and Restraint
        (a) Arrest is the restraint of a person by an order, not imposed as a punishment for an offense, directing him to remain within certain specified limits. Confinement is the physical restraint of a person.
        (b) An enlisted member may be ordered into arrest or confinement by any commissioned officer by an order, oral or written, delivered in person or through other persons subject to this chapter.

        (c)A commissioned officer, a warrant officer, or a civilian subject to this chapter or to trial thereunder may be ordered into arrest or confinement only by a commanding officer to whose authority he is subject, by an order, oral or written, delivered in person or by another commissioned officer. The authority to order such persons into arrest or confinement may not be delegated.
        (d) No person may be ordered into arrest or confinement except for probable cause.
        (e) Nothing in this article limits the authority of person s authorized to apprehend offenders to secure the custody of an alleged offender until proper authority may be notified.

        810. ARTICLE 10. RESTRAINT OF PERSONS CHARGED WITH OFFENSES
        02. Apprehension and Restraint
        Any person subject to this chapter charged with an offense under this chapter shall be ordered into arrest or confinement, as circumstances may require; but when charged only with an offense normally tried by a summary court-martial, he shall not ordinarily be placed in confinement. When any person subject to this chapter is placed in arrest or confinement prior to trial, immediate steps shall be taken to inform him of the specific wrong of which he is accused and to try him or to dismiss the charges and release him.

    Within the public media itself it has shown the direct and
    intently ignoring and by-passing the UCMJ not including the Overall Blatant
    violations of the Constitution. To
    establish content I refer to the Articles and Chapters, then the articles due
    to room. I have posted these by
    definition on face book 3 times and they have each vanished within 3 to 5
    minutes. I am sure without doubt you
    yourself will know how these accusations have come about. Sub-chapter 1. Article 2 & 5; Chapter 2. Articles 10, 14; Chapter 10, Articles – 77, 78, 81, 82, 83,
    84, 85, 87, 92, 93, 94, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 104, 106, 106a, 107, 108,
    109, 115, 116, 117,118, 121, 127, 131, 132, 133, 134. Each one of these “Punitive
    Articles” I believe are and have been blasted across the media without the
    public’s knowledge of how much of a severe violation these events are
    accountable for with in the Chain of Command.
    These are brought forward from the Executives Orders form 2008 and still
    defines blatant and knowing violations written by Mr.. Obama’s own hand. these do not include the total disregard of
    the Constitutional Structure and
    law. to further these complaints and
    direct accusations of violating the UCMJ

    “830. ARTICLE 30. CHARGES AND SPECIFICATIONS

    06. Pre-Trial Procedure

    (a) Charges and specifications shall be signed by a person
    subject to this chapter under oath before a commissioned officer of the armed
    forces authorized to administer oaths and shall state–

    (1) that the signer has personal knowledge of, or has investigated,
    the matters set forth therein; and

    (2) that they are true in fact to the best of his knowledge
    and belief.

    (b) Upon the preferring of charges, the proper authority
    shall take immediate steps to determine what disposition should be made thereof
    in the interest of justice and discipline, and the person accused shall be
    informed of the charges against him as soon as practicable.”

    Based on what has come out of Mr. Obama’s mouth himself, his
    press correspondence representatives, his minions, I mean subordinates directly
    underneath his responsibilities and charge.
    It is my Reasonable and Probable belief and knowledge the above articles
    have been proven to be accurate and would hold true under the jurisdiction of the
    Laws and the Constitution of this Country.
    I grew up saying the Pledge of allegiance everyday in school. I swore my Oath as a young Scout, swore my
    Oath into the Military, Into Corrections, into Law Enforcement, onto my papers
    to attend college, as well as swearing my Oath as I was hired on to my current
    employment. “Three things never to
    sway; One’s God/s, Ones Family, and One’s Oath/Word.” 5 hours a work day I experience the growing
    hatred and animosity that is building among my Brother and Sister
    Veterans. I can only offer hope and to let
    them know at least I hear and can relate to how they are feeling with real
    emotional and physical pain being inflicted upon them by a leaders they feel
    they have sworn to protect within their oath.
    I would like to share the out-come of the Nuremberg Trials and My Lai
    outcomes showing that they are just as guilty to follow an unlawful order that
    if anything would conflict with the laws of humanity, nor should they be
    coerced to participate in any activity under the threat of arrest or legal
    charges that would destroy their careers if they do not have comply to the
    unlawful “command, order, or threat.”
    During the 1972 Olympics (I believe) when the PLO took hostages as well
    as the plane high-jacking’s. The only
    role for terrorists annihilation with extreme prejudice. I would not even bury them in the ground
    because of the toxicity that wreaks from their souls. I would not inflict that upon the earth. I am going beyond my original intent of the
    letter, Following the UCMJ it seems any Soldier or Veteran can bring charges
    against any officer or enlisted for violations of law be it the Constitution or
    the UCMJ by swearing under oath they witnessed the violation of have Reason
    beyond belief the law has or had been broken by such person described in
    Chapter 1 Article 2 of the UCMJ stated above.
    I hope this finds you well and hope it may be of value to know many
    isolated Veterans are committing suicide or dying due to waiting lists and lack
    of appropriate care and really do not have a voice, due to the consequences and
    fear of the obvious. A gentle breath
    then a 2 to 5 pound pull can often alleviate a distant threat, the problem is
    it is no longer at a distance it is knocking on our doors, and becoming more
    common simply kicking in the door.
    Thanks again, appreciate your mentorship and the hope you personally
    give to many who know and experience what your able to articulate in a public
    forum.
