The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, a.k.a. the Iran Nuclear Deal. The Obama Administration claims it will allow Iran to develop nuclear energy while at the same time prohibiting Iran from building nuclear weapons. Nancy Pelosi described it as a diplomatic masterpiece.
But we all know such a deal will only allow Iran to construct nuclear weapons and put Israel in danger, since Iran has threatened to wipe Israel off the map. And who is to say that once Iran has nuclear weapons, it will not stop at Israel? Suppose the Iranians decide to launch a nuclear strike against the United States or any of its European allies?
Needless to say, this deal is horrible because the Obama Administration is practically compromising with the Iranians, who in all likelihood will not live up to their end of the bargain.
Not only will this deal buy more time for the Iranians to construct nuclear weapons, just recently it has been determined that this deal is a violation of federal law.
The law in question is the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act, which ironically was passed in August 2012. Such a law prohibits foreign subsidiaries of American owned businesses from doing business with Iran.
So now, under a section of the Iran Nuclear Deal, foreign subsidiaries of American-owned businesses are allowed to do business with Iran, provided the Iranians are fulfilling their end of the deal.
In addition, the terms under this law are to remain in effect until Iran is removed from the list of nations that sponsor terrorism and it ends its pursuit, acquisition, and development of nuclear weapons (or any other weapons of mass destruction for that matter) — both of which Iran is guilty of doing.
As long as Iran is ruled by Islamic fundamentalists, it will continue to sponsor terrorism and develop nuclear weapons. And once Iran has nuclear weapons, it will force other nations to submit to its will or launch a nuclear strike against them. The latter option is a more likely scenario.
Hence, the Obama Administration is breaking the law by pursuing this deal. But as is the case with its frequent violations of the Constitution, the Obama Administration does not care.
So Congress should take two courses of action: 1) reject the deal, and 2) bring charges of impeachment against Obama and subsequently remove him from office. Although the latter course of action is unlikely to take place, Congress can reject the deal. It can also use the threat of impeachment as a deterrent.
