Obama Secures Votes Needed for Iran Nuclear Deal

President Barack Obama secured a landmark foreign policy victory Wednesday as Senate Democrats amassed enough votes to ensure the Iran nuclear deal survives in Congress, despite ferocious opposition from Republicans and the government of Israel.

Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland became the crucial 34th vote in favor of the agreement.

“No deal is perfect, especially one negotiated with the Iranian regime,” Mikulski said in a statement. She called the accord “the best option available to block Iran from having a nuclear bomb. For these reasons, I will vote in favor of this deal.”

The backing from Mikulski, who is retiring next year, gives supporters the margin they need to uphold an Obama veto of a congressional resolution of disapproval if Republicans pass such a measure later this month.

    What does she care if Jews die? She’s retiring, so she doesn’t need their votes any more, or their money, and she’s probably got some Saudi-funded sinecure to look forward to.

    What just happened is an example of the impotence of and political laziness of the Crown Heights Jewish community who is secularly challenged.

    Yvette Clark, your representative, is voting for this.

    Why because you guys don’t vote in the democratic party. Why?

    G-d gave you a brain to think, arms to fight, and legs to move. Stop blaming Hashem, and start fighting. In a post Holocaust world, you have to.

    Start registering to vote in the local democratic primary elections, which are decided by a few thousand votes, and you will be the deciding voting block between political rivals Eric and Uma. ( Eric Adams vs Uma Clarke)

    Have regular Crown Heights Jewish community elections with a larger PAC without conflicts of interests, and then you’ll get a Jewish electorate that is inspired to vote.

    What would the Rebbe say about your secular laziness.

    How come there weren’t regular CHJCC meetings in advance on Yvette Clark’s prospective position ?

    Its tiime for the sheep to become rams.
