Obama Trying to Bypass Congress to Force His Nuke Deal Via the United Nations

Obama is trying to set up the United Nations to immediately approve his odious nuclear deal with Iran. His goal is to preempt Congress and take away their ability to have any say in the matter. That means he is going around Congress, he is ignoring you, the voter, as well as circumventing the Constitution to implement his deal that will give Iran a nuclear weapons arsenal.

Obama is trying to push the UN to approve the lifting of sanctions before the Congress has a chance to even debate Obama’s plan. Obama expects that if the UN approves his deal, then it doesn’t matter what Congress says or does because the sanctions will have already been lifted before Congress even meets.

And Sec. of State John Kerry even admitted[1] to CBS News’ Meet The Press that they intend to push through this disastrous nuke deal quite regardless of what Congress says.

DICKERSON: Last question. If you don’t get majority in Congress to support this deal, doesn’t that undermine the deal?

KERRY: No, not in the least. The Congress — they don’t care over there whether it’s majority or a minority or whatever it is, as long as the deal is implemented.

And that’s what we care about, that this deal be implemented. We would love see the Congress listen carefully. And we’re going to go up and we’re going to meet with them. We’re going to do our utmost to persuade people.

But, no, I don’t think that undermines this deal. This deal will stand ultimately on the fact that there’s unprecedented inspection, unprecedented access, unprecedented restraint in their program which they have agreed to. There will be an increase in the breakout time for fissile material for one weapon from two months to one year for the next 10 years.

There is a limit on their size of their stockpile for 15 years. For 25 years, they are going to have to allow tracking and monitoring of their mining, of their uranium all the way through the fuel cycle. And our experts are convinced, experts are convinced, that we will know what they were doing and we will be able to protect our security interests and the interests of the region.

Note, Kerry just said that the opinion of Iran is more important that the opinions of your elected officials.
