RINOs delivered 'end run' for Obama, UN bypasses Congress on Iran nuke deal, sanctions lifted

“If the international community refuses to see this as a tragedy, that is a grave strategic error; but if it’s aware of the tragedy and still chooses to pursue this dangerous path, that is a catastrophe.” ~ Ron Prosor, Israeli envoy to the UN, 7/20/15
Now the world becomes even more dangerous. The 'end run' around Congress came swiftly with this morning's by-design vote at the UN. And along with it went any semblance of American constitutional rule of law, thanks in significant part to the Republican Party...
TRS: If anyone thought Obama cared or respected what Congress thought about the Iran deal, then they haven’t been paying attention. He’s already gotten Congress to give him what he wants with respect to approving the Iran deal, and he’s subsequently threatened to veto any disapproval from Congress that doesn’t uphold the Iran deal. So why people are shocked that he’s already run to the UN Security Council to get their approval for the Iran deal so they can begin lifting sanctions is mesmerizing to me:
FoxNews: The U.N. Security Council on Monday unanimously endorsed the Iran nuclear deal, over the objections of U.S. lawmakers who wanted the panel to wait until Congress formally reviews the landmark agreement.

The vote is the first formal step at the international body toward implementing the deal and rolling back U.N. sanctions.

The White House says the Security Council’s actions won’t take effect for another 90 days, but congressional lawmakers nevertheless had urged President Obama to halt Monday’s vote — and allow Congress to vote first.

Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., on Monday called it an “end-run around Congress.”

“I don’t know why they’re going to the United Nations [first],” Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told “Fox News Sunday.”

Cardin and Barrasso were joined by several top-ranking lawmakers on both sides of the aisle in urging a pause at the U.N.

Congress has 60 days to review the deal — and then vote for or against it, or take no action. “I think they should have gone to the United Nations after the 60-day review,” Cardin said. “They don’t gain anything by doing it earlier.”
Even if Congress manages to muster up enough votes to defeat the deal, it still won't prevent the deal from taking effect, because the UN's already voted to lift sanctions...and Obama designed it that way. The Republican Party leadership just helped him get it quicker with the Corker bill. So any outrage that you're hearing from so-called Republican leadership today is nothing more than theater. This entire deal has been an end-run around Congress from the beginning, and RINOs sealed the deal.

Onto the next conquest...somehow aided and abetted by the quislings of the supposed opposition, no doubt.

ADDENDUM: As for the international community, couldn't agree more with TRS:
Wow. The level of delusion among members of this Iran deal is unbelievable... It’s like they are under a spell or something.

The idea that they trust Iran so much that they believe they’ve taken Iran’s nuclear weapon issue off the table just shows how naïve and starry-eyed they really are – delusional to the point of irrationality.
An army of Chamberlains is putting it too mildly.
