Democrats Torpedo Iran Sanctions

Joshua Pundit: The House had finished a resolution calling for increased Iran sanctions, a bi-partisan effort crafted by Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer, and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), along with Reps. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), the chairman and Elliot Engel (D-N.Y.), the ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

It called for Iran to allow “no-notice inspections of all suspect sites, including military facilities, and to allow full access by by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) officials to all Iranian personnel, scientists, and technicians associated with Iran’s nuclear program”.

It also called on Iran to release U.S. citizens “held unjustly in Iran”.

This was supposed to be released Wednesday night for a vote. Instead, Hoyer apparently got called on the carpet by the White House and withdrew support from a resolution he helped craft. Followed, of course, by a number of his fellow Democrats.

At present, the resolution is in limbo, and Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has already signaled that he will table any senate action on the matter.

Meanwhile, the countdown on Iran’s so-called nuclear freeze hasn’t even started yet, and the Obama Administration has admitted that the Iranian regime has already received $20 billion in sanctions relief …..with nothing in exchange except the privilege of talking to them.

The Israelis, of course, had briefed members of the senate about what was actually going on, but Secretary Kerry in his briefing instructed them repeatedly to “disbelieve everything that the Israelis say.”

As I told you before, the sanctions regime is history, and this is by direct design of President Obama and his team. They’re perfectly fine with a nuclear armed Iran.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
