If I was not pissed-off before learning that President Joe Biden and his cadre of Obama-era Communists planned to commemorate 9/11 by withdrawing American troops from Afghanistan, in essence surrendering to the Pakistani-created Taliban, the idea that Biden would re-engage with the duplicitous Iranians who shout “Death to American” makes me absolutely outraged.
But that pales when one considers that eight known Republicans are willing to join the Democrats to sell out their nation…
Once again, we find the same eight Republican RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) siding with the anti-Semitic progressive socialist Democrats against the interests of the United States and her major friend in the Middle East, Israel.
Richard Burr (R-NC)
Shelly Moore Capito (R-WV)
Susan Collins (R-ME)
Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
Rob Portman (R-OH)
Mitt Romney (R-UT)
Mike Rounds(R-SD - NOT VOTING)
Thom Tillis (R-NC - NOT VOTING)
These are the Republicans who voted or abstained in the Senate confirmation of Wendy Sherman as the Deputy Secretary of State.
For those who do not remember Wendy Sherman…
In President Bill Clinton’s administration, Wendy Sherman served as an Assistant Secretary of State and then as a Counselor to Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. In 1994, Hillary Clinton assigned the task of negotiating an agreement with North Korea to freeze and dismantle its nuclear program. Any sane person knew, at the time, that North Korea viewed nuclear weapons as a survival mechanism for both the Communist country and the Kim dynastic regime. There was no way the regime could survive walking away from years of starving North Koreans to fund the regime’s nuclear ambitions.
Clinton offered various cash inducements, industrial assistance, and diplomatic concessions in return for a North Korean Photo-op that could be spun as a Clinton administration foreign-policy triumph. A pyrrhic victory as the North Koreans took everything offered, lied through their teeth, and continued developing not only nuclear weaponry but also an intercontinental ballistic delivery system.
A major fail in everyone’s estimation that should have precluded Wendy Sherman from ever serving as a diplomat and negotiating another strategic agreement.
If that were not a primary cause to reject Sherman's confirmation…
In President Obama’s Administration, Sherman was Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs and the lead negotiator in the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, full of secret side agreements and technically in default the day the agreement was signed.
Repeating President Clinton’s playbook, Sherman again offered various cash inducements, industrial assistance, and diplomatic concessions in return for an Iran Photo-op that could be spun as an Obama administration foreign-policy triumph. This time something was different, Hillary Clinton was replaced, and the cheese-eating surrender monkey and chief appeaser John Kerry assumed the role of Secretary of State; Kerry was willing to do anything to get a Photo-op, even canceling some of the economy crippling sanctions placed on Iran and unblocking billions of dollars to save Iran’s economy. Meanwhile, the nuclear program and missile development work continued unabated.
Another pyrrhic victory as Iran took everything the U.S. offered, lied through their teeth, and continued developing not only nuclear weaponry but also an intercontinental ballistic delivery system. As Yogi Berra famously observed, “déjà vu all over again.”
Will the third time be a charm for Wendy Sherman?
After a hiatus with lucrative consulting gigs with Albright’s consulting firm and a professorship at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, we find Wendy Sherman returning to the Department of State just as the Biden administration is re-engaging with the murderous Ayatollahs of Iran.
Biden’s administration had said it was ready to join talks with Iran and world powers to discuss a return to the 2015 nuclear deal. Iran has demanded that the US lift sanctions before it returns to talks. It has also rejected discussing other issues, such as its regional activities. <Source>
US President-elect Joe Biden has indicated his desire to return to the accord, while Israel is pushing for any return to the deal to include fresh limitations on Iran’s ballistic missile program and support for terror and destabilization around the world. <Source>
It appears that Biden’s pledge to revive the nuclear deal with Iran, this time promising to correct the “mistakes of the past,” again involves Wendy Sherman. And for those not paying attention, Biden also nominated Obama’s State Department fixer and Ukraine hoax plotter, Victoria Nuland, to be Undersecretary for Political Affairs.
Let us not forget that John Kerry and members of Obama’s former team may have been negotiating with Iran during the Trump administration and working against the United States' interests.
Kerry is quietly seeking to salvage Iran deal he helped craft
John Kerry’s bid to save one of his most significant accomplishments as secretary of state took him to New York on a Sunday afternoon two weeks ago, where, more than a year after he left office, he engaged in some unusual shadow diplomacy with a top-ranking Iranian official.
He sat down at the United Nations with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss ways of preserving the pact limiting Iran’s nuclear weapons program. It was the second time in about two months that the two had met to strategize over salvaging a deal they spent years negotiating during the Obama administration, according to a person briefed on the meetings.
With the Iran deal facing its gravest threat since it was signed in 2015, Kerry has been on an aggressive yet stealthy mission to preserve it, using his deep lists of contacts gleaned during his time as the top US diplomat to try to apply pressure on the Trump administration from the outside. President Trump, who has consistently criticized the pact and campaigned in 2016 on scuttling it, faces a May 12 deadline to decide whether to continue abiding by its terms. <Source>
Without a doubt in my mind, former President Barack Hussein Obama was not only anti-Semitic, but he was also an arch-enemy of the State of Israel. To see an addled Joe Biden allow the Obamacons to attempt to salvage one of Obama’s key initiatives in reinstating an Iran Nuclear Deal is to watch traitors candy-coat a turd.
To watch Republicans openly voting against the safety and national security of the United States is not only maddening but sickening.
We are so screwed.
