It’s the end of a foreign policy era. Thank You, Jesus!
It’s been a really, really crappy foreign policy era for the United States.
Yet, Barry really thought the Iran Deal was his landmark achievement in foreign policy.
That was to be his legacy.
Which just goes to show you how unbelievably nutty Obama was when it came to foreign policy.
That’s why President Trump nixed the deal. It was a crap deal to begin with, and Barry couldn’t even get Congress to agree to it, so he bypassed them with his ‘pen and his phone’.
The alleged-Constitutional scholar, Obama completely disregarded the Treaty Clause of the Constitution when making the deal.
And somehow, Trump is the ‘dictator’.
Trump has this one absolutely right. (Of course, that seems to be the general rule of the Trump Administration to date.)
Trump will earn credit from his supporters for keeping his promise. But in truth, the Iran deal was undone by its own terms. It did not stop Iran from enriching uranium; it did not stop Iran from building a nuclear weapon, eventually; and it did not stop Iran’s global aggression.
In fact, the Iran deal was not even a deal at all.
It was never signed by any of the parties (the U.S., Iran, France, the UK, Germany, China, and Russia). It was unclear about crucial subjects like ballistic missiles, because the “deal” was described differently by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and by the UN Security Council Resolutions that were meant to implement it. And, crucially, it was never sent to the U.S. Senate for ratification.
Fortunately, we’re erasing that ‘Legacy of Appeasement’ that Obama championed.
Barack Obama came to power convinced that the United States was at best a negative force in world affairs, and at worst the cause of the world’s problems. He believed that America could be a force for good, but only if it renounced its traditional allies, abandoned its principles of freedom, and gave up its national interests in favor of rising regional powers elsewhere.
In his first year in office, Obama backed away from agreements that his predecessor had made to provide missile defense in Europe. He also reached out to the Muslim world, beginning with obsequious speeches in Cairo and in Ankara, and deep genuflection to the Saudi king. When the Green Revolution took to the streets of Iran, Obama allowed the regime to consolidate power. He criticized Israel openly while cozying up to the Cuban dictatorship.
With President Trump, we’re going right on back to our historical positions with our historical allies, and that’s a great thing.
One could even say that President Trump is ‘Making America Great Again’.
The Conservative Twitterverse had a whole lot of fun with the vanishing Obama legacy.

"Poor egotistical Obama! Thought he was the world’s greatest painter & now Trump has painted right over his canvass" @DineshDSouza
Well said, Dinesh! It is happening and all he can do is watch.
How sweet it is!

Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
Here’s a shirt for real men (and women, too):
Why be average? It’s so overrated.
Everyone does that.
