… Watch a Tour – de – Force [#Sen Tom Cotton][#JohnBoy Kerry][#Iran Nuclear Deal]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 7th,2015

.. the ObamaCrap flunkies have been making the rounds , trying to sell their monstrosity of the iran nuclear Deal . However , as details of the deal come out , things get worse by the day ..

.. Several flunkies [Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz , Treasury Secretary Jack Lew , and SecState JohnBoy Kerry] came before a Senate committee recently . Moniz and Lew have at least something of a reputation left . However , given the fiasco over the negotiations , the SecState [JohnBoy Kerry] does not …

.. boy , oh boy , did an emerging GOP star , Tom Cotton of Arkansas , took him on …

.. and Cotton took johnBoy apart ..

Cotton then pressed Kerry on why Congress cannot have full access to the specifics of the IAEA-Iran deal. The exchange led to a devastating observation by Cotton:

COTTON: Why can’t we confirm or deny the content of these agreements in public? Why is it classified? It’s not a sensitive U.S. government document. They Ayatollahs know what they agreed to…

KERRY: Because we respect the process of the IAEA, and we don’t have their authorization to reveal what is a confidential agreement between them and another country. 

COTTON: So, the Ayatollahs will know what they agreed to, but not the American people.

Kerry tried to lessen the blow of the line by saying that that’s “not exactly” right because the administration will share “what we understand” the deals to be in a briefing.

Kerry then attempted to play ignorant about the specifics of U.S. law under the Corker/Cardin legislation, which requires all details of the deal to be presented to Congress, saying he doesn’t know if the law requires information which “another entities’ laws prohibit.”

Having heard enough of the equivocation, Cotton cuts in to clarify:

COTTON: U.S. law requires any deal between any party–not just the United States–to be submitted to Congress before the 60-day clock begins to tick.

.. I can bet that Tom Cotton [R-Ar] was one hellacious Army officer . He sure as hell won the undying loyalty of his mates , even to this day ..

.. Congressman Cotton has done a fine job , even as a freshman representative , and he will make a fine US Senator when he kicks Mark Pryor ‘ s butt this fall at the polls …

.. the DemoCraps have no room to complain . They fundraised endlessly off of the war in Iraq [Operation Iraqi Freedom] , no matter what was happening . Especially when things were going bad , the more the Dems fundraised off of the war (and the bad feelings) …. and the DummyCraps bellyache about the GOP doing it even a little bit …

.. well , Tom Cotton was having none of it …
