WASHINGTON — Senate Democrats have rallied the 34 votes they need to keep the Iran nuclear deal alive in Congress, handing President Barack Obama a major foreign policy victory.

Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland became the crucial 34th vote Wednesday morning, declaring the agreement is the best way to curb Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

Congress is to vote later this month on a resolution disapproving the deal, which is unanimously opposed by Republicans, who call it a dangerous giveaway to Iran.

    I think we need to boil down the damage the lefty bastards are doing to the rest if the country.
    Ex: gas prices go up in the summer because California needs a special blend , which reduces output from refiners for fuel for the “rest of us”.
    Ok.
    Attorneys General from States effected should sue California for the rise in cost, to their States.
    Force the “green weenies” to pay for their legislation.
    Build more refineries on the Gulf Coast- be free from socialist nutcases like “stuper super slobbering Jerry Brown (da gov).

    What in the world is in this agreement that makes anyone think it will curb Iran’s nuclear ambitions?? Must be some kind of arrested development in our “negotiators” brains. And these 34 just plain have no brains of their own, and are lambs being led to slaughter, taking us with them.

    The democrats don’t care what’s bad for or happens to America, They only want to keep their jobs by kissing Obama’s you know what. We need Donald Trump, if he gets in as president I will bet anyone he will tell Iran to go to hell and they can stick their democratic agreement up their butt. If force is needed he’ll use it. McConnell should be removed as speaker of the house. I think he is speaker of the democratic party.

  • This is the state of affairs that our Founding Fathers were worried might happen one day, but they did give us the means to end it, with our WEAPONS! We have a Congress full of Tyrants and the people who voted for these Tyrants are the same, enemies of our Nation, same as that pathetic Kenyan Homosexual Muslim Fecal Maggot, Hussein Obama! Obama and these Senators are TRAITORS and need to be removed by any means available!

THEY ARE GOING TO GET OVER ONE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS TO USE TO MAKE THE BOMBS AND BY GOD I HOPE THE FRST ONE LANDS ON YOUR HOUSE! I’M SORRY I SAID YOU ARE DUMBER THAN A NALE, I MEANT TO SAY YOU ARE SO FUCKING DUMB YOU SHOULD PUT ON A BOAT WITH KERRY AND THE OTHER ASS HOLE, OBAMA AND DRIFT OUT TO SEA! WHERE THE FUCK WERE YOU WHEN GOD PASSED OUT BRAINS?! OH, I KNOW, YOUR HEAD WAS UP YOUR ASS AND GOD COULD NOT FIND AN OPENING! THE UNITED STATES IS IN DEEP SHIT AND LOOK WHO GOT US THERE!

    All these traitors and their act of treason will be long gone living on your tax dime and enjoying their ill-gotten wealth……and you libs are in denial of this sell out……………

  • M. L. Maas

    God help the United States of America. ALL Democrats and their constituents will have the blood of Israel on their hands, as well as the destruction of America. The idiocy of this administration and state department is totally mind boggling. Impeach them. Stop the traitorous representatives, too.

  • wmagg

    This so called agreement ( nothing of the sort ) is little more than a total capitulation to yet another Fascist regime. The American people will be expected to accept the FACT that this is the right thing to do when we all know this deal WILL in the end result in NUCLEAR WAR in the middle east. This WAR will spread to the rest of the nations and allow terrorists to kill and then run to IRAN and hide. Do The people of this failed nation (U.S.) need any further proof that it is time to follow the constitution and desolve this tyrannical despotic monstrosity we have allowed to control and destroy OUR nation and OUR freedoms.

    Each and everyone of these 34 should be taken out and hung. This is not just having a differing opinion, this is about causing very potential damage or destruction to America and Israel. This is a matter of being traitors by giving aid and comfort to our sworn enemy. The only good thing is that Israel will only let them get so far before they take things into there own hands and destroy there centrifuges and other war locations.

    When we have a candidate running for president of the united states on the democrat socialist party and he is doing pretty well, we better look out.
    This treaty with Iran is the biggest slap in the face to Americans so far. It is delivered by those who are suppose to protect our interests, which could not be farther from the truth. Democrats and republicans alike have sold out their people. The people running for president who are not politicians are the ones who are actually getting votes. I could not be happier that this is finally happening. Those who would only support democrats or republicans are beginning to see how that costs us.

    I Hope that this POS incompetent and Inconsequential MORON will live long enough to Experience one of Iran’s First A-Bomb hits in Maryland!!!

  • Phyllis Schultz

    Unfortunately we in MD have never been able to count on Cardin or Mikulski to do what the voters want. They do whatever Obama wants them to.

    • wmagg

      Have you ever heard of a recall
      Colorado did it at the state level and it proved the people can still make their voice heard.

  • TexRancher

    People need to keep a record of who these TRAITORS are! They have gone against the wishes of the overwhelming majority of Americans who oppose this deal and have put us all at great risk! Don’t forget that Corker and Cardin helped make this possible with only 34 votes! These TRAITORS all need to be held personally responsible!

    This is another issue of Obama and his cronies giving aid and comfort to our enemies!

      Truer words were never said! If McConnell had any guts he would NEVER have given away treaty negotiations in the first place. NOW he needs to force a voice vote, televised on C-SPAN, so that we can all see exactly which idiots should be tried for treason. As it stands right now, they’d all have to be tried!
      Being from Illinois, we knew Obama was part of the “Machine” from the get-go. We watched them destroy two lives by leaking sealed divorce records and just plain making stuff up to get him into the state senate. Then, when he “decided” to run for President I read both of his “auto”-biographies. It was all there for anyone with a brain. He’s either a Muslim with strong Marxist tendencies or a Marxist with strong Muslim tendencies and he ABSOLUTELY HATES “WHITE AMERICA”! So, since he hasn’t been able to take us down with internal race wars, he figures to let Iran take us out.
      We need to find out exactly how many “Louisiana Purchase/Corn Husker Kickbacks” it has taken him to get to 34 votes. Too bad these people probably won’t live long enough to collect all their blood money.
      The entire world knows that Iran has absolutely NO INTENTION of abiding by anything they signed as Mohamed, long ago, gave them full permission to lie, cheat and steal when it comes to “Infidels”. I hope we are all ready for Nuclear Winter, because it will be here soon. Most likely before we have a new President so we don’t have time to rebuild our military. And like a good Muslim, Obama probably has plans to be in Mecca when they launch.
      GOD HELP US ALL!

        When people say we can vote them out, that is not a true statement. They are either this group of crooks or that group. I noticed that in a local election there was no reference on the voting sheets as to democrat or republican, I asked one of the officials and they said it was because it was a primary and not a election. That was not true and it wasn’t listed on the ones that were in a run off either. When politicians would knock on my door and they did quite often they had trouble figuring out which party they were a member of. I told them I would be ashamed of it too. I don’t know how it will come about but sooner or later we have to start seeing politicians go to prison, not on vacation. When Hillary can destroy evidence and run for president at the same time it looks like they have no limits.

        • wmagg

          They make the laws without your consent or knowledge and then pass amendments to those laws the which exclude them from those very laws they expect you to live by.
          So yes THEY have no limits. Now what are you going to do about it. Remember this the next time you vote.
          “The definition of stupidity is doing the same thing repeatedly the same way and expecting different results”

    • 7papa7

      I am in total agreement with you. Maybe some of the traitors should be delayed and not be able to make it to the vote.

    • wmagg

      Just remember this when you stand at the voting booth next time or you talk to your friends
      Your future and the future of your children and grand children was destroyed by those who promised to represent the will of the people and then took an oath to uphold the constitution of this nation and abide by the laws of this nation and then not only violated that promise but also their oath of office and their constitutional duty and the law. All the while demanding that you pay them for what they were doing. Meanwhile all any of us did was stand by and whine about it and say we will fix it after the next election. Well how you gona fix this mess
      “YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID” and the silent majority is just that
      RECALL RECALL and total RECALL
      We the people have the right and the power to desolve this despotic criminal empire we have allowed to destroy our nation ensure our childerns future, but do WE have guts to stand together and do it??
      I doubt it
