President Obama Speaks

U.S. President Obama to speak Wednesday on Iran Nuclear Deal

United States President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak Wednesday (August 5) on the Iran Nuclear Deal, reports The Wall Street Journal.  President Obama will state his case and explain why he is in favor of the agreement.

The Iran Nuclear Deal made on July 14 has faced serious skepticism among lawmakers, global leaders and citizens. Obama will try to persuade enough lawmakers to support the agreement. “Congress is expected to vote in September, after a 60-day review of the deal, on whether to approve or reject it,” says Carole Lee of The Wall Street Journal.

The speech will be held at American University in Washington, D.C..

Bolton calls Iran nuclear deal ‘fundamentally flawed’

John Bolton, former United Nations Ambassador,  stated that President Obama is negotiating “an unprecedented act of surrender” with Iran, as reported by the The Hill. “This deal is fundamentally flawed … There really is no deal I’d trust Iran with. It is a regime determined to have nuclear weapons and this deal will give it to them,” Bolton condemned.

In exchange for removing economic sanctions, the Obama administration hopes Iran will slow nuclear armaments research.  The Obama administration has received aid from Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia in efforts to bargain with Iran.

But an open letter sent by the Republicans to Iran’s leadership, revealed  this week ignited controversy.  The letter signed by 47 GOP senators stated:

“What these two constitutional provisions mean is that we will consider any agreement regarding your nuclear-weapons program that is not approved by the Congress as nothing more than an executive agreement between President Obama and Ayatollah Khamenei.  The next president could revoke such an executive agreement with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time.”

The letter affirmed that Congress can void any deal it finds unsatisfying and was signed by 47 GOP senators.  According to The Hill, President Obama was “embarrassed” for the message’s signers.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) criticized the Ayatollah’s regime Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,”:

“They’ve been killing Americans for 35 years, they’ve killed hundreds of troops in Iran, now they control five capitols in the Middle East … They are nothing but hard-liners in Iran, and if they do all of those things without a nuclear weapon, imagine what they would do with one.

As Rudy Giuliani stated in his speech at the International Women’s Day Conference in Berlin this month, “Obama’s negotiations with Iran are ‘extremely reckless’.  The Obama administration is racing to meet their self-imposed deadline of March 24.

Giuliani: Obama’s negotiations with Iran ‘extremely reckless’

Rudy Giuliani

During Rudy Giuliani’s speech at the International Women’s Day conference in Berlin, the former New York City Mayor described President Barack Obama’s “pushing of negotiations with Iran as extremely reckless,” adding those who believe what Hassan Rouhani says about intended use of nuclear capability  is “stupid.”

Several of the global leaders who spoke at Saturday’s conference, including Giuliani, criticized Western governments, particularly the U.S. for the lack of action taken against the Iranian regime and their growing violations of human rights in Iran.

President-elect Maryam Rajavi addressed the solution to defeating fundamentalism, explaining concern over the West for not “seriously confronting” fundamentalism:

The international community cannot defeat fundamentalism, unless and until it targets the epicenter of fundamentalism, namely the mullahs’ regime in Iran.  Western policy of appeasement is at fault because the West has not only failed to seriously confront fundamentalism, but has chosen the path of conciliation with its state sponsor, the regime Iran, and partnered with it in clamping down on the alternative to fundamentalism.
