U.S. President Barack Obama

U.S. Democratic Senators held their ranks Thursday and blocked a resolution to disapprove the Iran nuclear deal signed with Tehran by the delegation of world powers.

The 58-42 vote handed President Barack Obama a major political victory and an undoubted sigh of relief.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX) vowed before the vote, “It will be all Iran next week,” telling reporters, “There are going to be more votes. There will be other opportunities for people to change their mind next week, hopefully after they hear from their constituents.”

The House of Representatives is slated to vote Thursday on legislation contending the president has not yet sent all of the documents on the deal to Congress for review.

Lawmakers in the House of Representatives will also vote on Friday on a measure to prevent the U.S. from lifting sanctions on Iran as part of compliance with the deal. The final vote in the House will be on a measure of approval for the agreement.

Under legislation approved earlier this year, Congress faced a deadline on Sept. 17 for taking action on IranDeal.

  1. Obama needs to be Impeached and those Democrats need to be voted out of office, if there is even a USA left for the next election. End Times are coming fast, will soon move to One World Goverment under Antichrist and one world religion under the rule of the Religous leader who will join forces with him,both under Satan. USA will be absorbed as will most other nations and Israel will be attacked and wounded badly, but in the end, God will Destroy all who came against israel and Jesus will come down to set up His Rightous Kingdom along with remainign Jews and Israel/Jews WILL win and survive.

  2. The Jews voted for the most anti semitic President in US History who claimed to "have Israel's back" What Obama really meant that he will push Israel right back to the ghettoes of Europe as soon as the Iranians develop their nuclear bomb which promises to destroy the State of Israel. All of the American Jewish voters all 72% of them, plus the Jewish politicians in Washington DC,must feel really proud right now as they have secured the death of Israel and all of the Christians, Jews, and Moslems wholive in the only Democracy in the Middle East. I hope these Jewish voters sleep well at night knowing that they helped to desroy the State of Israel.

  3. I have family and friends who are part of this debacle who voted (not once, but twice) for this anti-Semitic nightmare, and you know what? They couldn't give a damn about their own people or their "brothers and sisters" in Israel. Many of them have Holocaust surving parents and grandparents and that didn't seem to stop them when they were warned NOT to vote for obama and were told over and over that he would eventually sell the Jews and Israel down the river. Don't worry, these "Jews in name only" are sleeping better than we are right now.

  4. D'vorah Joy My entire famile "disowned" me as well. My brother, nephews, their wives, etc all called me "stupid, putz, , idiot," andother names simply because I tried to warn them back in 2007 and 2008 about this anti semite running for office. These so called relatives of mine are all rich Jews who think that whatever happens to the Jews wil certainly pass them by. In my life, I have visited over 25 Concentration Camps, or what was left of them. What happened to the Jews in Europe was a real event. Many of the Jews who were killed did not believe that the Germans who basically were among the most intelligent people on earth could stoop so low as to kill six million Jews and maybe 30 million other people, and possibly more. This newest insult to Judaism, the Iranian Treaty; signed by every Jewish Democratic politician is saying to The State of Israel, " Go to hell, we just don't care that the Iranians will develope a nuclear bomb, and with that bomb, kill every Israeli" We just don't care, after all all we are really interested in is getting re-elected, and having campaign contributions come in. American Jewish Democratic voters can sleep easy tonight knowing that the pushed the button to destroy The State of Israel.

  5. Cody Flecker It is not my family (meaning my American cousins) who needs to judge me, it is Ha'Shem, so I don't care what these spoiled idiots think. My Dad's side of the family (what is left of it) is in Vienna, and they are not so stupid and egotistical, and they know exactly what the deal is, and what is at stake.
