Just this weekend, we get news of the behavior of two political actors, one from each party. Both of them deserve censure, and one of them needs to be perp-walked, and placed in handcuffs, then brought before a judge to answer for his treasonous acts. You know all about the “Iran Nuclear Deal”, negotiated in secret by the Obama Administration, and never brought before the Senate for its consent (which is a requirement in the US Constitution). Yes, that was the one where the Obama henchmen sent a full pallet of Cash to Iran. That would be Your Money! Due to that illegal non-treaty, sanctions were removed from the world’s greatest sponsor of terrorism, and many countries and businesses initiated new contracts.
However, President Donald Trump has stated many times that he thinks this non-treaty was a big mistake, and he intends to get the US out of it. Of course, that started the multiple cases of hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth in Europe and among the denizens of the Swamp in DC. Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu last week publicized a plethora of new documents obtained from Iran that show unequivocally that the country has been cheating on that “agreement” from the very beginning, and continuing its pursuit of nuclear weapons. We now learn that FORMER Secretary of State John Kerry has been pursuing “shadow diplomacy” with Iran, to try to keep that illegal agreement in place. Now, I don’t know of any agreement with the Trump administration for him to even travel to Iran, much less do ANY type of diplomacy! This behavior is demonstrably illegal, and Kerry needs to be stopped and charged immediately. Sigh, that probably won’t happen.
And then, we have the behavior of ostensible Republican Senator John McCain. He is suffering from an inoperable brain tumor, but instead of graciously retiring from the Senate, he has stayed on, making a fool of himself, and destroying any goodwill that we may have had for him. Yes, he is to be pitied for his health issues, and admired for his survival of torture from the North Vietnamese (50 years ago!). But when he insults his VP Candidate Sarah Palin, and announces that none other than Barack Obama will deliver the eulogy at his funeral, he puts himself beyond the pale. This is deplorable behavior, and totally reduces his standing in the minds of all Republicans. And all so he can get his revenge against President Trump. This is just pitiful, and diminishes HIM, but not President Trump. Maybe before he dies, he should become a Democrat.
