This is a sad story of treachery and betrayal. They say that each people have the government they deserve. Maybe so, but in this case it reflects the dire situation of national politics, with an utterly anti-American president and his equally unpatriotic administration on the one hand; while on the other hand, are parked the “others” who in principle should be the opponents.View Post
They represent the democratic party facing the republican party. So far, it should be no news to my readers that the republicans more often than not, cross that malignant line called compromise, accommodating the wishes and the will of unpatriotic democrats rather than naturally defending the interests of those who elected them, the American people.
Now, some 47 Republican senators have chosen to write an open letter to the Iranian mullah regime, kindly alerting them to the situation should they have the bad idea of signing an agreement with the president.
As such, they explain that “Anything not approved by Congress is a mere executive agreement… between President Obama and Ayatollah Khamenei.”
The problem would therefore be the “executive” agreement, right? As if the world was not already used to see the American president sign executive order after executive order without a sneeze from Congress or the people.
The presence of both, the president and the ayatollah, only emphasise the fact that these men are de facto tyrannical dictators of both countries and, frankly, from their point of view, signing the agreement should be more than enough.
Naturally, there goes the Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif , not missing a beat, to lecture the Americans:
“This kind of communication is unprecedented and undiplomatic,” , according to a state-run television website. “In fact it implies that the United States is not trustworthy.” “The authors may not fully understand that in international law, governments represent the entirety of their respective states, are responsible for the conduct of foreign affairs, are required to fulfill the obligations they undertake with other states and may not invoke their internal laws as justification for a failure to perform their international obligations,” Zarif was quoted as saying. “We insist that a possible deal should be one where our people’s rights are observed and we are certain that there are measures to achieve such a deal.”
However, the obvious fear the 47 American senators have for Obama cannot entirely hide behind such an unprecedented move. They have been unable to pull up their pants .
They have wasted their time with the ayatollahs.
Instead, with the little testosterone left in their bodies, the valiant senators should have gathered all the strength and fortitude needed to make a much bolder and needed move, i.e., squarely demand that Mr. Obama and his administration relinquish power with immediate effect, so that the nation could move to early elections.
After all, senators of all people, know that there are Constitutional measures for removing the Executive
A careful reading of the Constitution demonstrates that the Congress has sufficient authority to resolve the issue of a President who has a constitutional disability. Those specific words are mentioned in Article II, and the Twelfth and Twentieth Amendments. The term “disability” is also used in the Twenty Fifth Amendment and can be applied broadly to cover any disability of a President.
- Article I. The first Article of the Constitution grants the authority to the Senate to try and convict the President by impeachment.
Of course the senators are aware of the degrading situation of America. Naturally, as a vast majority of Americans, they are counting on the 330+ million strong country that still keeps flaunting its good fortune despite the over third of the population unemployed, disemployed, underemployed, sub-employed, you name it; they also happen to disregard the over 47+ million living on food stamps, plus other society ailments that we cannot mention in detail due to lack of space and readers’ attention span.
I can hear some telling me, but they meant well, probably, but the world now knows for sure that their president does not listen to them and if he does, he couldn’t care less.
Most certainly the remaining the message also conveys the sentiment of those 47 Americans senators who were hoping the ayatollahs will listen to them.
In between lies the cannon meat, the American people whose deafening silence can be heard loud and clear.
