“Stuck on Stupid” US Senate just proved they’re afraid of Barack Obama

I’m quite sure y’all have heard the reference, “stuck on stupid” — I use it often. It was first used on me back when I was a young Army ROTC Cadet going through my summer training at Ft. Lewis in 1982. I remember Lieutenant General Honore using the reference in New Orleans when he was called in to fix the problems there post Hurricane Katrina. And today, I will have to apply it to the U.S. Senate based on a recent vote they took — these folks just cannot be THAT “stuck on stupid,” can they?

As reported by Reuters, “The U.S. Senate rejected an effort on Tuesday to require any nuclear agreement with Iran to be considered an international treaty, which would have forced any deal to be ratified by two-thirds of the Senate’s 100 members. The Senate voted 57-39 to reject the measure, which Republican Senator Ron Johnson offered as an amendment to the Iran Nuclear Review Act, a bill requiring an Iran nuclear deal to be reviewed by Congress. The amendment’s backing by 39 Republicans signaled that there could be intense debate in the coming days as the Senate hammers out its final version of the legislation. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other top Senate Republicans were among those voting for the amendment, despite an emotional appeal against it from Senator Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and author of the bill. Corker and Senator Ben Cardin, the committee’s top Democrat, have been working against so-called “poison pill” amendments seeking to toughen the bill, which they say would kill its chances of becoming law by alienating Democrats and provoking a veto by Democratic President Barack Obama.”

Hello, McFly, what part of this does our U.S. Senate not get? The freakin’ Iranians just basically hijacked, in international waters, a cargo ship under the security protection of the United States.

These jerks are holding four Americans hostage — one, Amir Hekmati is a former U.S. Marine and another, Saeed Abedini, a Christian pastor. And our senators are worried about hurting the feeling of the Iranians and a “poison pill” that would alienate Democrats and provoke President Obama? Doggone, what kind of neutered fools do we look like right now? Peace through strength has been replaced by Alice the housekeeper from the Brady Bunch.

I’d like someone to explain to me why we are so submissive to Iran in this whole escapade? What is it that these esteemed elected officials are not getting — Iran has been in a state of conflict with the United States since 1979. Iran’s behavior has NEVER changed, so why are we seeking to appease them — or even to a greater degree, President Obama?

And to read that the Senate Foreign Relations Chairman, Senator Bob Corker, was making an “emotional plea” is blatantly appalling. The American people elected a GOP majority in the Senate for the expressed purpose of stopping the insidious actions that were emanating from the upper chamber. The people demanded actions be taken to restore the American Republic and its sense of strength and exceptionalism. And what is happening? We are kowtowing to a bunch of black-robed Islamic fanatics and mystics. Funny, here in America we treat Christian Pastors and our Judeo-Christian faith heritage with utter disdain, yet we want to kiss up to the bastards who shout “death to America?”

That is what I call stuck on stupid.

Reuters writes, “Senator Corker announced on Tuesday that his bill has 67 co-sponsors, enough to override a presidential veto. Obama had threatened to veto the bill as a threat to ongoing nuclear negotiations with Iranuntil last week, when leaders of the foreign relations panel agreed on a compromise that removed many of the measure’s strictest provisions. Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday that Washington and other major powers were closer than ever to a deal with Iran, although more tough talks lay ahead of a June 30 deadline for reaching a final agreement in which Tehran would drastically scale back its nuclear program in exchange for an easing of crippling economic sanctions.”

And I don’t want to hear the false narrative that we either enter into an agreement with Iran — or the only other thing is war. That’s simply not true, but as stated, the Iranians already see us as weak and have been fighting a proxy war against America for some time.

I want someone, anyone, to look me in the eye and explain to me why we NEED to “deal” with Iran? You see, in the Islamic world, words mean nothing — so who cares about “tough talk?” Theirs is the most basic of society and culture; it is about strength and might. It’s one’s actions, not words, which carry the most weight.

And I’m sorry, but when I see the cast of characters we have sitting across from the Iranian delegation conducting these “talks” there is no strength, will, determination or resolve. Now, if former UN Ambassador John Bolton were sitting there, I’d feel differently.

Then again, with all that we know about Iran, Ambassador Bolton wouldn’t be wasting his time sitting with these chuckleheads.

Yes, we are showing the world, allies and enemies, that we are stuck on stupid. We are repeating the Neville Chamberlain moment and we know where that led — as Germany built an impeccable war machine right under the noses of the European powers. And they thought it could all just be talked over. I’ve been in combat and I know what happens. I also know that as Plato stated, “Only the dead have seen an end to war.” I believe a resolute spirit and a deterrent capacity can reduce the occurrence of war.

I also believe in these words from John Stuart Mill:

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse. When a people are used as mere human instruments for firing cannon or thrusting bayonets, in the service and for the selfish purposes of a master, such war degrades a people. A war to protect other human beings against tyrannical injustice; a war to give victory to their own ideas of right and good, and which is their own war, carried on for an honest purpose by their free choice, — is often the means of their regeneration. A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. As long as justice and injustice have not terminated their ever-renewing fight for ascendancy in the affairs of mankind, human beings must be willing, when need is, to do battle for the one against the other.”

Iran represents tyrannical injustice. And I will not associate with the stuck on stupid crowd — be they Republican or Democrat — who in the end are miserable creatures with no chance of ever being free. I stand ready to do battle for that which is right and good — and care little about provoking a community organizer’s veto.

I just have no more to say about Obama and the left and now the right. Our Government is so broken

The Constitution has been weakened and the founding principles all but forgotten. Because ignorance and political correctness is the new foundation of a floundering Divided States of America.

I agree regarding feeling hopeless; how can ordinary citizens be heard? I’ve been writing my representatives and the White House and it just feels futile. I thought a Republican Congress would have some sense but clearly I was wrong. And I have the same question, why is the only alternative to go to war?

That’s what Obama wants you to think. Keep you afraid of the possibility of war so that you (by you I mean the general public not specifically you) will go along with his plan. My wonder is why? What’s in this deal for him that he sinks to tactics like fear and misdirection (referring to baltimore) to get the deal to go through. The only thing I can come up with is that some where in this deal either he personally benefits or some other group he cares more about than he does the USA benefits because the USA doesn’t… Read more »

Why does no one of authority question the actions of these congress critters? We can make phone calls and tweet until we are blue in the face, but as “merely concerned citizens” our voice is not heard, and quite often any question we the people have go unanswered. It appears we are reaching critical mass and obviously have no recourse without media, or a mass public outcry covered by media, to question the actions of those sent to represent us…How do we hold them accountable other than voting them out next election, only to have them defeated by an equally… Read more »

@OzCop:disqus I hate to sound all conspiracy theory here but hear me out. You said we, “have no recourse without media, or a mass public outcry covered by media” with that in mind does it make you or anyone else wonder why the media focused so heavily on the death of one man who’s death cannot even be ruled a murder yet because it’s unclear exactly how he died, they focused on it and drew so much attention to it that riots began. So now anything anyone talks about is on Baltimore and the general public have forgotten the Iran… Read more »

It’s called creating chaos then having the weak minded insist on someone doing something radical to correct the problems.

We are dealing with Iran because Obama’s advisor, Valarie Jarrett, was born in Iran, as would be my guess that Iran has all the US military and Intel given to them by VJ.

All the jerks we put in office are just that liars jerks lining their pockets time to revolt and take our country back! Not one of them has the balls to stand up for WE THE PEOPLE. Not a single one. It is so dad that our once proud country has fallen so far and it appears both parties welcome this.

we are becoming a one rule government. there are no more checks and balance system. the REPUBS are starting to share the same views as the DEMS only difference is one has a D and one has an R after their name.
A time to get a 3rd party going in full force. ANY Conservative in Congress is knocked down by the Elite GOP members..

A third party will only split the current Republicans and then Hillary will be our next president. Dennis Michael Lynch is not a politician and he is running for President as a true Patriot. Anyone who is man enough to stand along against the BLM and tell them to leave the Bundy Ranch, is in my mind a hero. He would make a great President, moral and not one to be bought off by large contributors. I would also like to see a strong person in the Department of Defense and I believe Lt. Col. Allen West would work well… Read more »

Well said Balto2, keep spreading the word about Dennis M. Lynch, he’s for real, and his number of supporters is growing every day. Instead of complaining about the misrepresentation we have, let’s all get involved in the process, make our voices loud and clear, and make the changes only we the people can make.

The real power in the White House is Valerie Jarrett, born in Iran to parents who were members of the Iranian communist party. In any dealing with Iran, there are two votes for Iran and none for the US and the rest of the world. Do some research on her, it’s an ugly story…
