Once Again, Obama Lies To The Public And Ignores Congress

Once again, President Obama has lied to the American people and evaded Congressional authority. In April, he agreed to give the US Congress a role in reviewing the Iran nuclear deal. Congress has not even begun its formal review, yet this morning, at about 9:00 AM eastern time, the US voted at the UN Security Council in favor of adoption of the agreement.

Obama at Press ConfReuters reports that “The 15-member body unanimously adopted a resolution that was negotiated as part of the agreement reached in Vienna last week between Iran and the world’s major powers.” Notably, the majority of these members states were not a part of the negotiations, yet they voted on a 159-page document less than a week after it was announced. So much for a thorough and thoughtful examination.

More to the point, though, Obama has shown again, as he has before, that when Congress won’t do as he dictates, he will circumvent it. Although Obama had the power to block UN Security Council action, he made the choice not to do so. One must wonder whether he planned this before he ever signed the Corker bill into law. He’s shown the highest disregard for the will of the people’s representatives in Congress.
