Kerry peddles Iran deal to House: You can’t pass a treaty anymore. [Video]

Careful Kerry, your fascism is showing. As Rep. Reid Ribble grilled Kerry on exactly why the Iranian nuclear arms deal was not indeed a treaty, Kerry blustered arrogantly that Senate consent has become physically impossible and you can’t pass a treaty anymore. He’s saying this gives Obama as president the basis to do whatever he deems is right and necessary. Excuse me? Obama and Kerry can’t get their way with Congress, so they’ll just skip the whole thing and relabel the deal something other than a treaty and call it good. That’s not just shredding the Constitution, it’s throwing it to the ground and doing a two-step boogie on it. #Tyranny indeed – I have the greatest respect for Adam Baldwin. I’ve been a fan of his for years. I love his acting, but I love his wit and political insight even more. He nailed it on this one.

John Kerry

From BizPac Review:

Secretary of State John Kerry made a statement last week that was so outrageous it even made a Hollywood actor’s jaw drop.

Rep. Reid Ribble asked Kerry why the administration didn’t feel it necessary to follow the provisions set forth in the Constitution when making the nuclear arms treaty with Iran.

Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution provides:

[The President] shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur

Presidents have followed the Constitution for 228 years, Ribble told Kerry, by getting the advice and consent of 67 senators. President Obama doesn’t see fit to do that, Ribble said, before asking, “Why is this not considered a treaty?”

Kerry’s response was over-the-top audacious and arrogant.

“Because you can’t pass a treaty anymore,” he said.

So just tack on a different name and call it done?

The audacity wasn’t lost on actor Adam Baldwin, who tweeted a video of the exchange (along with the hashtag #tyranny):

That one tweet was all it took to ignite social media. Here are a few examples:


Clearly a rhetorical question given that the answer is obvious — and it’s not Kerry.

Kerry and Obama have betrayed this country over and over again. This would be treason by any other name. We are truly living in a Post-Constitutional America. Obama has hinted over and over that he wants to rewrite and update the Constitution. If he can’t pull that off, he’ll just ignore the law. Screw it. These are the actions of a dictator and they really aren’t trying to conceal their intentions anymore. The Founding Fathers would have called for a tall tree and a rope over this. This is beyond arrogance. Obama has become a despot and Kerry is a knowing foot soldier in a Marxist regime. This is what you get when you put radicals in control and traitors are handed the keys to the country.
