Senator Tom Cotton Talks About Potential
for De-Certifying Iran Deal…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 10/12/2017 8:54:11 AM

There is a myriad of complexity within the Iran issue that extends beyond the substantive issue of whether or not President Trump should again certify compliance with the Iran Nuclear Deal. For clarity, President Trump would not be ending the deal or ending the agreement. The President is required (every 90 days) to certify if Iran is upholding the terms of the nuclear agreement. The next certification is due on October 15th. If President Trump does not, because he cannot, certify compliance – he notifies congress. It’s up to congress to decide what to do from there. Therefore President Trump

Writer goes on to discuss the influences pressuring our legislators. Something we should always recognize and keep in mind. The same goes for pundits, journalists, essayists.

Senator Cotton can be an ally for MAGA (see immigration), or he can be a concern for MAGA (see aggressive military intervention), depending on the issue. It is also important to understand how lobbying efforts impact policy positions as they relate to military intervention. There are interests in DC pushing us toward military conflict with Iran.

Read on. Sundance talks about more than just Sen. Cotton.

In the dining room of her quaint, brick Alexandria home, Linda Nickens sat quietly as she traced her glittery, pink fingernails over an old black-and-white photo of the late Charles “Pruner” West. Nickens, who has lived at her house since 1974, has seen her collection of photos, footballs, plaques, books, awards and trinkets multiply as her once-bare walls have become full of deep-rooted memories. At the dining room table, Nickens, 72, spread out a handful of photos, going through one by one as she recounted the stories of the man some called “Doctor,” others “Pruner” or “Charlie,” but to her

Bret Stephens writes in the New York Times that even though he is happy with the policy achievements of the Trump Administration in its first year, he will never support Donald Trump because he is offended by the president’s personality: Tax cuts. Deregulation. More for the military; less for the United Nations. The Islamic State crushed in its heartland. Assad hit with cruise missiles. Troops to Afghanistan. Arms for Ukraine. A tougher approach to North Korea. Jerusalem recognized as Israel’s capital. The Iran deal decertified. Title IX kangaroo courts on campus condemned. Yes to Keystone. No to Paris.

LOS ANGELES (AP) Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield made it to Rose Bowl media day after all, swooping in late and providing a jolt of drama as he noted he has been dealing with ”flu-like” symptoms. The Heisman Trophy winner missed the first half of the 45-minute session Saturday morning at a downtown hotel, but arrived in time to meet with the media for the first time this week ahead of the College Football Playoff semifinal between the second-ranked Sooners and No. 3 Georgia on Monday night.

President Trump should take decisive action in 2018 to support the ouster of the virulently anti-American theocracy that has ruled Iran with an iron fist and threatened its neighbors for the past four decades. The president’s first step should be to throw American support behind the brave anti-government protesters who have taken to the streets in mass demonstrations across the Islamic Republic since Thursday. The street protests continued Saturday, with demonstrations in cities including the capital of Tehran and Kermanshah. In a good first step, the U.S. State Department announced Friday that the America “strongly condemns the arrest of peaceful protesters. We

The Daily Mail has published an article citing a 4chan hoax to accuse a former White House intern of supporting white supremacy after he was pictured using the OK hand-sign. In their article, the Daily Mail cited a 4chan hoax, which has been debunked by numerous organizations, in an attempt to associate former intern Jack Breuer with “white power” and white nationalists. (Snip) It wasn’t until the end of his article that Gould acknowledged the fact that the Anti Defamation League (ADL) debunked the hoax earlier this year.

Nearly two weeks ago, ESPN President John Skipper shocked the media world by suddenly resigning from his position at the “Worldwide Leader.” At the time, Skipper said he needed to resign to deal with substance abuse issues.

In the late 1990s, border traffic moved from Southern California to remote desert stretches of Arizona; by 2013, it moved east again to Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, the epicenter of migration and enforcement ever since. Now, one of the things driving the Trump administration’s push for millions of dollars in new border security measures is a troubling new reality: New smuggling routes are opening up, and some of them are even

The ferocity of President Donald Trump´s recent attacks on the integrity of the FBI has sent shock waves through an agency accustomed to public adulation in recent years. Sadly, much of the presidential criticism of the bureau may be entirely legitimate. The FBI has traditionally enjoyed a highly favorable reputation among a majority of the nation´s citizens. Despite controversial programs that sometimes employed illegal forms of surveillance and enforcement methods (Snip) this reputation endured. And American presidents continued to steadfastly defend the bureau -- that is, until now.

On December 27th CNN Legal Analyst Paul Callen appeared on television to discuss his recent Op-Ed that runs counter to the preferred engineering of CNN executive narrative sellers. Paul Callen had accepted the CNN-echo chambered position that President Trump was making unfounded accusatory statements toward the FBI and Department of Justice. However, then Mr. Callen broke the cardinal rule, he actually did some investigating of the claims he was criticizing. To CNN’s horror, Paul Callen came away from his research with an evolved and informed position that Trump was right, and his detractors were wrong. Callen appeared on a CNN segment with Poppy

This is a major victory. After years of hard work in federal court, Judicial Watch has forced the State Department to finally allow Americans to see these public documents. It will be in keeping with our past experience that Abedin’s emails on Weiner’s laptop will include classified and other sensitive materials. That

Former US President Barack Obama made a barely veiled attack on President Trump in a BBC Radio interview conducted by British Royal Prince Harry, apparently politicising the otherwise neutral Royal Family by involving them in Domestic U.S. politics. Speaking on Radio 4’s Today programme about handing power over to President Trump, the Democratic party figure told the prince — who guest edited Wednesday’s episode of the BBC radio show — that social media was “corroding civil discourse”, urging people in leadership positions to use it with caution. Prince Harry´s "interview" with @BarackObama was an outright attempt to politicise our Monarchy

Everyone suspected the sketchy Steele Dossier was what corrupt FBI and DOJ officials used to get the October 2016 FISA warrant against Trump. FBI and DOJ officials refuse to answer that question publicly. Despite a hundred different ways congressional investigators have asked the question, and despite numerous on-camera questions to FBI and DOJ officials about the 2016 FISA process, no-one had definitively confirmed the Christopher Steele ‘Russian Dossier’ was the underlying evidence for the 2016 FISA application to gain wiretaps and electronic surveillance upon presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The most important lesson from Judge Roy Moore´s U.S. Senate loss to Doug Jones in Alabama is that the reliable red state is dead. (snip) There are no more reliably red states. I believed this before Alabama; if the red state wasn´t dead before Alabama, it was on life support. There are only blue and pur-blue states. The mostly coastal blue states are unequivocally majority-Democrat. What, then, turns a pur-blue state red? The answer is so simple that it´s often overlooked: turnout, turnout, turnout

Garner was the daughter of Eric Garner, a man who died in a police chokehold in New York in 2014. Among tributes, Senator Bernie Sanders said that although Garner “didn’t ask to be an activist, she responded to the personal tragedy of seeing her father die … by becoming a leading proponent for criminal justice reform and for an end to police brutality”. Announcing Garner’s death in New York on Saturday morning, the Rev Al Sharpton said she was “a warrior to the end” and said “her heart was
