Three Democratic senators announced Tuesday they will vote in support of the nuclear deal with Iran, appearing to pave the way for a filibuster of Republican-led attempts to disapprove of the controversial agreement.

Pro-deal statements from Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Gary Peters (D-Mich.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) mean 41 senators are now publicly backing the deal, enough to keep a disapproval resolution from emerging from the Senate and making its way to President Obama’s desk and forcing a veto.

    if this little man is remembered at all, he will be remembered, with scorn, as a fool, who betrayed the US and the Jewish people.

    my bet is that no one will miss him when he’s gone. it might be said of him, as the magnanimous Churchill said of baldwin, “I wish Stanley Baldwin no ill but it would have been better if he had never lived.”

    disgusting fool.

    They have been bought off. Unfortunately it seems according to scripture this deal will be consummated. Obama will bring this to the mat. His Devine mission is to be the catalyst for Armegeddon, whether he knows that or not. He has loaded the gun with every means he has at his command. He is reloading, reloading, and reloading until he has created a situation where on the surface it appears to be overkill…because it is. Now that he feels Israels demise is certain he will cloak himself in ultruistic actions such as climate change. He can safely appear to be an above the board politician because he has put the wheels in motion, which at this time will destroy Israel and cannot be halted. The Pope will push climate change with Obama and attempt to force all the western nations to incorporate Muslim refugees within their borders. Wars that were started by Obama and Hillary. The caliphate is in full motion as the American congress concentrates on transgenders in the military.
