Politics " Note the word " BEFORE "
White House delivers new warning to Senate on Iran legislation
Published March 15, 2015

March 11, 2015:

The White House sent a new warning to the Senate late Saturday saying to stay out of negotiations with Iran over the country’s nuclear program, asserting that potential legislation would have a “profoundly negative impact” on current negotiations.

President Obama’s chief of staff Dennis McDonough told Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker in a letter that legislation sponsored by Corker would go beyond ensuring a role for Congress in a deal with Iran.

"Instead, the legislation would potentially prevent any deal from succeeding by suggesting that Congress must vote to 'approve' any deal," McDonough said. He criticized a provision that would eliminate Obama's authority to lift some sanctions on Iran as part of any agreement.

Talks are set to resume Sunday in Switzerland with the U.S. and other world leaders facing a looming March deadline to reach a framework deal.

"The administration's request to Congress is simple: Let us complete the negotiations before the Congress acts on legislation," McDonough said, adding that he does expect a robust congressional debate if a final deal is struck by the end of June.

McDonough echoed Obama’s threats to veto the legislation should Congress pass it.

Corker and other senators in both parties believe Congress should be able to vote on any agreement to block Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

"On this issue where Congress has played such a vital role, I believe it is very important that Congress appropriately weigh in before any final agreement is implemented," Corker said in a statement late Saturday.

McDonough’s letter follows one this week that was signed by 47 Republican senators and addressed to Iran’s leaders warning that any agreement with the U.S. could expire once Obama leaves office.

The White House slammed the letter saying it was politically motivated and an attempt to undermine the president’s ability to conduct foreign policy and advance U.S. national security interests.

The GOP letter follows a controversial March 3 speech to a joint meeting of Congress by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in which he warned that the emerging nuclear agreement would all but guarantee that Iran gets nuclear weapons. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, invited the prime minister to speak without input from the White House and State Department, in what the White House said was a departure from protocol.

McConnell suggests Senate will delay Lynch's AG vote until Dems pass anti-human trafficking bill
Published March 15, 2015

{ Why we can Not have a Anti Human Trafficking Bill }

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Sunday that a final vote on appointing Loretta Lynch as attorney general will remain on hold until Democrats help pass an anti-human trafficking bill.

The Kentucky Republican said Tuesday that a final vote on Lynch, President Obama’s nominee to succeed Attorney General Eric Holder for the Cabinet post, would be scheduled this week. But that plan blew up Thursday when Senate Democrats objected to abortion language in the bipartisan bill to stop human sex trafficking.

“This will have an impact on the timing of considering the new attorney general,” McConnell told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I had hoped to turn to her next week. But if we can’t finish the trafficking bill, she will be put off again.”

The 68-page bill has been available for nearly two months and was approved unanimously in February by the Senate Judiciary Committee. But Democrats said they didn’t notice the abortion language until last week.

Fines paid by those convicted of the sex-trafficking crimes would go into a fund to help victims. But Democrats are balking because the legislation also contains a Republican-inserted provision that bars the use of fines to pay for abortions, except in cases of rape, incest or when the life of the pregnant woman is in jeopardy.

Republicans say the language is simply an extension of the so-called Hyde Amendment that bans the use of federal funds for abortions except in limited circumstances.

“They all voted for the very same language in a bill in December,” McConnell also said Sunday. “This is boilerplate language that has been in the law for almost 40 years that they all voted for three months ago in another bill."

However, Democrats argue the legislation would mark a significant expansion since it applies to personal funds paid in fines.

They also say the restriction against the use of fine money would be permanent, while the one that applies to federal funds would lapse unless renewed on a year-by-year basis. And they argue that Republicans are using any excuse to stall the nomination -- at a time when terrorist groups are threatening the United States.

"It's time for Republicans to stop dragging their feet on Loretta Lynch," said New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, the chamber's third-ranking Democrat.

Schumer's party doesn't appear to have the votes in the GOP-controlled Senate to remove the abortion language, but think they have enough support to keep the bill from passing.

“If they want to have time to turn to the attorney general next week, we need to finish up this human trafficking bill,” McConnell also said Sunday. “It’s extremely important to the country.”

Lynch is now the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York. She was nominated by Obama in November and would replace Holder, who last year announced his retirement.

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved Lynch’s nomination Feb. 26 with a bipartisan vote, sending it to the floor. Three Republicans -- Sens. Orrin Hatch of Utah, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina -- voted for her.

She is expected to win the nomination in the final vote, but by a very close margin.

That's the Biggest reason the word Impeachment canot be used : Election WAY OFF

Better start thinking about Angels and Babies and Easter !
It's time for the Senate to tell Obama: "you're done jerk!"
HE only has ONE EXIT : It is NOT Impeachment which is OFF the table

For a review : One much Watch the Pres. Gerald Ford Speech -

PRIOR to the resignation of NIXON which MANY went to Prison
They did NOT Impeach Him on CRIMINAL Charges

At the time--- many of the Nation bought into it - It can't happen again -- They are NOT Stupid
It's about 15 Min Long to the Nation : It's available to the Public

That will tell ALOT-- Why Not : Impeachment

A VERY Sound Reason The OTHER WORD

Then their is the Impeachment of Clinton : and the Stunts HE Pulled !
All the way back to the 1990's

Yet to return - and Campaign for OBAMA so Wife could have the #3 position of the United States - and tossing the Election on 11/ 6 do to Benghazi Event on 9/11 : Hiding it from the Public ; a VCR Tape

With OUT any accomplishment's : NONE

Two Choice's : ONE is which he walk's away - without Constitutional charges being applied to the Others - He will not have the Joker Card's to Save Them.

The other is to go FULL TERM : Still with Out Joker Card's - as the Constitutional weight builds - Still NO Charges

You can't issue Joker Card's - If Nothing has been rendered

Must patiently wait - They are in a virtual Panic looking for a route out !

Today is the Debt Ceiling Cap : 18 Trillion and Still Never has been a budget.

Secretary of Treasury : Jack Lew :

X- Citi Corp Fiasco- Chief Executive officer

OBAMA is Doing a VERY FINE Job Internationally
