President Obama now has all the votes he needs to pass the Iran nuclear deal.

Courtesy of the New York Post: 

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. 

Obama has vowed to veto the resolution if it passes. It would take 34 votes to uphold his veto, and Democrats now have those in hand.

Oh there is no joy in the Republican Mudville today my friends. 

And I think we know we can all count on a poorly worded, venom soaked tirade from you know who later today.

However for the rest of us this is a damn good deal, and more importantly one that removes yet another bogeyman from the GOP's closet of horrors which they use to frighten the American people into voting for them.  

Not only that but the President accomplished this while hanging out up here in the last Frontier. 

Damn it's good to be the President!

    Activists in Iran pen open letter to Americans on nuclear deal

    http://www.politico.com/story/2015/08/iran-activists-write-letter-americans-support-nuclear-deal-213192

    Open Letter to the People of the United States
    Open Letter to the American People from Iranian Civil Society Activists and Intellectuals on the Nuclear Deal
    August 2015

    We are a group of Iranian civil society activists, intellectuals, journalists, lawyers, university professors, religion investigators, senior members of political parties and reformists. We are writing to you at this historic moment in the relations between our two countries to make an appeal for your support of the nuclear agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

    We have long been committed to upholding the values of tolerance, pluralism, human rights and the peaceful relations between nations. We deeply believe that a just and reasonable solution for international disputes is through negotiation not by using the right of power and imposing unilateral views on others. We strongly believe if this nuclear agreement is approved and implemented, it holds the promise of the gradual realization of these universal values within Iran, along with the possibility of better relations between our two nations.

    We are deeply concerned about the consequences that might result from the rejection of this nuclear agreement. Economic sanctions against Iran will increase, as will the likelihood of war. This would be a catastrophe for the Middle East. Another war in this region would strengthen the forces of extremism and undermine the forces that work for nonviolence, peace and reconciliation; the ripple effects of another war would be felt far and wide, and would destabilize the international system for years to come.

    For all of the above reasons, we are appealing to you at this critical juncture in history. We urge you to seize this unique opportunity, and to impress upon your elected representatives in Congress of the importance of supporting this nuclear agreement. Another opportunity of this magnitude may not present itself again in our lifetime. We owe it to future generations of Iranians, Americans and Middle Easterners to raise our collective voices in support of peace and diplomacy.

    We look forward to a day in the future when Iranians no longer have to write open letters to Americans, but can meet face to face with mutual respect and dignity based on shared civilizational values that bind us together as citizens of this planet.

    Sincerely,

    http://www.du.edu/korbel/middleeast/iranletter.html

  2. To be clear, nothing stops a nation from developing nuclear weapons if it chooses to. Iran may very well hoodwink the world. But slinging around nukes is not a one person party. Peaceful nuclear nations have more weapons than Iran will have for many years.

    As for the fear that a weaponized Iran will increase the prospect of nuclear terrorism, possibly. Should that happen and the links are established, Iran should be prepared for anything that follows.

      What would e the purpose of them having nukes? Mainly, for deterrence. After all, we have armed Pakistan, India and the barely rational Israel. We set up Iraq to fail, and to fall into he hands of any with enough weapons (ours,) cash (again, the missing billions?) and will to try to take over. The reason any nation wants what its neighbors has to to deter them from thinking they are all-powerful and being bullies. Israel certainly has the bully part down. I actually think an armed Iran wouldn't be the worst thing int he world. I mean, compared to Bibi and his US buddies, what would they do?

    If the President closes Gitmo as promised, he will have delivered on all his major promises. I was there in Millenium Park in 2008, along with my sister who passed shortly after that from cancer. 2 million patriotic Americans of all colors, ages, genders and orientations. It was a magical night. Many people were shedding tears of joy. I'm happy my sister got to experience that before she passed. Especially after the disastrous Bush-Cheney administration.

    White House not celebrating Iran deal win yet

    President Barack Obama scored big Wednesday when he snagged the last vote he needs to ensure the Iran nuclear deal survives Congress. But now the White House is more determined than ever to keep the agreement from coming to a vote in the first place.

    The deal's opponents are just as determined it will.

    As word spread in the morning that Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) had become the 34th Democrat in the Senate to support the deal -- ensuring it will survive a presidential veto override attempt if necessary -- Obama administration officials doubled down on their lobbying efforts.

    Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a speech in Philadelphia that didn't mention Mikulski's vote but appealed to lawmakers to support the deal, declaring it "will matter as much as any foreign policy decision in recent history." He also sent letters to members of the House and the Senate detailing what the administration was doing to increase financial and military assistance to Israel and to Arab allies worried about Iran's non-nuclear activites in the Middle east.

    The moves reflected the administration's quiet preference for Senate Democrats to block a resolution of disapproval with a filibuster that prevents the deal from reaching a vote in the first place. If it does come to the floor, the GOP-led majority is certain to vote to disapprove the deal, forcing the president to veto their resolution. If the deal survives through a veto, the optics aren't great for the White House: Opponents can argue that the president forced the agreement through over the objections of the American people.

    So as the hunt began for favorable votes No. 35 and higher, administration officials said Wednesday that they were not in jubilation mode.

    "We don’t take any vote for granted," a State Department official said. Added a senior administration official: "We are still going to continue fighting for every single vote out there in the Senate or the House. We’re not resting on our laurels."

Can you imagine if our roads were now repaired, our bridges safe, our schools funded, and even more people working and spending money. It would be boom time in America, and the GOP candidates could puff out their hairless chests and claim credit for it. Instead, they honored their traitorous pledge to Norquist, blocked every positive bill they could, held hearings over nothing over and over again, and they look like idiots. Please proceed, GOP.

    Food giants call truce with Michelle Obama

    Companies that once fought school-lunch standards are backing down now that their whole-grain cinnamon rolls and reduced-fat pizzas are bringing in the profits.

    As the Republican battle against Michelle Obama’s school lunch standards resumes in Congress later this month, some food giants are quietly backing away from their fight with the first lady.

    Many companies, such as Schwan's, that once vigorously fought key elements of the initiative to trim sodium, fat and calories from school menus have actually done a bang up business since the requirements took effect by adapting their products for the $10 billion market.

    And now that they have won acceptance for retooled recipes — among them, whole-grain rich Pillsbury breakfast cinnamon rolls, reduced-sodium Schwan’s Big Daddy's pizza and reduced-fat Doritos — some food makers don’t want the rules to change again as Congress works to reauthorize the law that expires Sept. 30.

    The Iran Deal's Latest Hurdle: Big Donors



    If passed, the Iran Deal will be the biggest diplomatic achievement of the Obama presidency. Painstakingly negotiated over the course of two years between the United Kingdom, Russia, France, China, Germany, the U.S., and Iran, the deal prevents Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon in exchange for relief from financial sanctions that have crippled its economy.

    Unanimously ratified by the UN Security Council, the deal imposes the strictest inspections system ever established. The deal ensures UN inspectors have 24/7 access to nuclear facilities. It requires Iran to dissolve 98 percent of its nuclear stockpile, and mandates surveillance over every step of the process. Negotiators have left no stone unturned to block Iran’s pathway to a nuclear bomb.

    Naturally, when policy of this magnitude is discussed, Representatives and Senators speak to a number of groups, constituents, foreign policy, military, and nuclear weapons experts that all have a vested interest. Seven Nobel laureates; 36 Generals and Admirals; and 75 nuclear scientists all support the deal.

    100-plus former Ambassadors including former ambassadors to Israel, 60 national security experts, and even a former director of an anti-Iran Deal group support it, too. Polls have even shown that the majority of American Jews support diplomacy over war, while both Jewish and Christian religious leaders support the deal. Two more Democratic senators announced their support for the deal yesterday, making it almost certain the president will have the votes to pass it.

    Despite this, there is still one barrier that Congress is struggling to overcome before the voting even begins: their reelections.

    1) Do nothing, and the situation may blow up due to a huge number of factors, and Iran gets nukes within a few years.

    2) Start bombing Iran, causing major and horrific consequences throughout the Muslim world

    3) Bomb and INVADE Iran, causing major and horrific consequences throughout the Muslim world, unstabilize the entire region, cause financial turmoil, provoke the Russian Federation, and possibly start World War 3.

    4) Find some sort of deal with Iran.

    Ms. Lindsey is none too happy that he and his warmongering cohorts are getting clobbered.

    Warmonger Lindsey Graham Throws a Temper Tantrum After Obama Win On Iran Deal

    Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) tweeted this little bomb in reaction to the Democrats getting the needed 34th vote this morning that locks in their ability to sustain a Presidential veto if necessary, “The Iranians have now secured enough Senate votes to ensure they have a pathway to a bomb, missile to deliver it, & money to pay for it”.

    http://www.politicususa.com/2015/09/02/warmonger-lindsey-graham-throws-temper-tantrum-dem-win-iran-deal.html

    But then this guy has such a hard-on for war it's truly heinous:

    ...“The whole world is a battlefield and radical Islam is everywhere,” the senator from South Carolina said on "Fox News Sunday."

    On Saturday, 25-year-old el-Khazani opened fire on a Paris-bound train, but was quickly tackled and subdued by a group of passengers, including two U.S. servicemen. When asked if the thwarted attack shows that the U.S. should limit passports to people from “certain regions” where radical Islam is more concentrated, Graham answered affirmatively.

    “Absolutely. I think we need to be a nation at war,” said Graham, referring to the fight against the Islamic State. “We're letting our defenses down. We're not acting like we're at war anymore. We're acting like we're trying to fight a crime. It's going to come back to bite us.”

    U.S. President Barack Obama's success in garnering sufficient support from Democratic senators to enable him to uphold his veto right in a vote against the nuclear deal with Iran is not likely to cause Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to recede from his campaign in the U.S. against the deal.

    Netanyahu is expected to take the line that even though Obama has managed to preserve his right to uphold a veto, the deal with Iran still does not have legitimate public support.

    http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/.premium-1.674204

    Except it does!

    Fifty-six percent of U.S. adults surveyed in a new Washington Post/ABC News poll say they support the Iran nuclear deal while 37 percent say they oppose it. Seven percent said that they had no opinion of the deal.

    A partisan breakdown of the majority of Americans who say they support the deal finds that 69 percent of Democrats, 56 percent of Independents, and 41 percent of Republicans are, for the moment, on board with the framework. Still, on the campaign trail, every single GOP candidate to have declared has come out against the deal the president's administration has spent years negotiating. With the exception of Jim Webb, the Democratic candidates have thrown their support behind the nuclear deal.

    There is one aspect of this agreement (albeit a side affect) which no one here today has mentioned.

    The major oil companies are not in favor of this deal for one major reason: the price of oil will probably go DOWN once Iran is able to openly sell their oil on the world market! That means the price of gasoline will go down, which means the profits might be hurt.

    And since their profits could go down, their bought and paid for flunkies in Congress will be (and are) against it. Those fools want war and weapons profits as well as oil profits, which of course are going to go down still further as alternative energy systems become more widespread - another of our wonderful President's favorite subjects.

    The Israel lobbies don’t win every fight on Capitol Hill, but over time they have tended to win the big ones in recent decades. This time, they are going down. Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu, a notorious narcissist, appears to have completely over-estimated his ability to deploy those lobbies to overrule President Obama on the United Nations Security Council’s deal with Iran to monitor its civilian nuclear energy program so as to forestall any break-out toward an atomic bomb.

      What a sorry bunch of yukkers - Glenn Beck, Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the runt with the wig (cannot think of his name!) - gadfree, could go on and on! But, they are a sorry, sorry group of Americans that are an embarrassment to our country!

    In the past, presidents have come to Alaska to fly-fish or meet with visiting heads of state, welcome a pope or rally American troops. More often, though, it's been simply to refuel Air Force One on the way to or from a far-flung destination. Obama will make history by becoming the first commander in chief to head north of the Arctic Circle in the U.S......

      Which POTUSs, 11:17 AM? Please name them and year they were here. You make is sound as though many have been in Alaska for visits and long stays, which is far from true.

      Hate to tell you, but our wonderful black POTUS, President Obama, has been in Alaska the longest - done more things - visited more communities/areas to include above the Arctic Circle!

      He outshines all other POTUSs by far and we are delighted to him visit throughout our wonderful State of Alaska!

    The TP and right-wing are going to be all over this tonight on the usual suspect conservative talk shows.

    Do these people ever consider others? Thank God for President Obama and this deal, which certainly will buy time, and give Iranians (families by the way) time to live fairly peaceful lives, without the Damocles sword over them, wondering if they get embroiled in conflicts.

    The average Iranian can't control his/her Imam's governmental control, nor can they wish conflicts away. They want the same deal the U.S. is pushing, as it gives their leaders time, gives their economy latitude to grow, and it gives them a sense of security. They deserve that just as much as any nation. While it's true that a religious element in Iran want Israel 'wiped off the map', this deal can at least buy Israel time as well. None of these people, including the U.S. and it's allies (Canada) want to get into a conflict; nor do Israel's neighbors, israeli citizens, Iranians, Iraqis, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Jordan, pulling Egypt iand African nations nto a quagmire.

    We can at least 'breathe' for a few more years. I say, thank God for President Obama.

    Thank God

      I love the welcome he is getting from us Alaskans! Instead of holding signs telling the Palins to "GO AWAY" when they return to Alaska we are welcoming President Obama with open arms.

      He looks like he's having so much fun

      Obama heads to remote reaches of Alaska on last day of tour

      http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/09/02/us-usa-obama-alaska-idUSKCN0R20XE20150902

      and YES, Alaskans are falling in love with him, sometimes begrudgingly for some, but nevertheless he is being welcomed in a huuuuuge way.

      Here he is with the little ones:

      http://www.ktuu.com/news/news/video-obama-joins-in-native-dance-tells-kids-to-keep-up-traditions/35071018

      And his first salmon experience is hysterical. As usual he just rolls with it and smiles that megawatt smile of his.

      President meets Alaska salmon: 'She said he's just happy to see me!'

      http://www.ktuu.com/news/news/president-meets-alaska-salmon-she-said-hes-just-happy-to-see-me/35069124

      This has got to absolutely be busting Sarah's balls, and sure, Toad's also, but they're so shriveled up that they're hardly worth mentioning. But here is Barack Obama, on 'their' stomping grounds, being welcomed on 'their' turf.

      In fact, he is bringing more attention to Alaska and it's people, the nature and the wants and needs of the communities, far more than she EVER did, reality show or not, it was never about Alaska, and this is.

      I love the way he is putting his mark on history and the people of Alaska in a way that only he can.

      And it tickles me that Sarah ain't no where to be found in town. She has got to be melted down in some hotel room in the lower 48, waiting for the drugs to kick in, because this is just too much to handle, PBO has invaded her space, big time and has not once mentioned her name, nor, from what I have seen or read, NO ONE has broached her name to him, either. She is dead to Alaska, that is clear.

    He's rocking it with this trip! Wonder why he chose Todd's old stomping ground to visit? His way of giving someone the bronx cheer?

    He even used a selfie stick and did his own instagram photos! When a President does it, it's cool. Some random pregnant has been "skin office worker"? Not so much. But then again, he didn't have a joystick bun, long face, and crooked eyes in his photos.
    Class, all the way!!
