Best Quotes from Stop Iran Rally

This is a very dark moment in American history, and indeed world history.    As the Rally Against Iran was in progress on the lawn before the Capital, inside the building, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he will do nothing to stop the Democrats from arming and funding Iran, the world’s greatest terror state, Iran.  Is the fate of our country really to be left to such weak and cowardly hands?

The Democrat and Republican politicians are knowingly sacrificing thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands or millions of lives to their short-term well-being.  For them, it is mere politics as usual.

But in front of Congress, thousands of citizens gathered to express their outrage and hear from a list of fabulous conservative patriots.  There were great lines from many speakers.  Senator Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, Mark Levin, Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck were there. Some of the lesser known speakers were amazing.

The standouts for me were the lead speakers,  Mark Levin, Senator Cruz, and Donald Trump. 

Michele Bachmann was an unexpected standout.  She alone called for both a legislation and military alternative to what I call the Obama-Iran Treaty.

Accept the victory that has already been given.  The federal law states that if Barack Obama fails to give every part of the Iranian agreement to this Congress, including side deals, by July 19, well then the sanctions stand.  Case closed.  We won.  What we need are Republican leaders who will not be complicit with a lawless President.  We need them to go the microphone today and tell the American people…the sanctions stand.

Longterm…A President needs to understand who you negotiate with and who you don’t.  History has already told us what the solution is, very successfully.  When a rogue nation tried a nuclear program, it was eliminated.  In Iraq, in Syria. …You go in and you take out the nuclear hardware in Iran…that does not bring on World War III - as we have seen in the past it ensures peace into the future.

Obama is fulfilling Islamic jihad.

Rep. Louis Gohmert:

Under the Iran Deal – the unthinkable would happen, what you and I would never dream would be possible in our lifetime.  We would stand with all the anti-semites in the world …and been an enemy to Israel.

It looks like the (Republican leadership) are willing to change the song…We’re going to cast a vote this week, you can’t lift the sanctions.  Don’t give up, you’re making a difference.  We can stop this.  Keep the faith, keep the fight.

Breitbart’s Sonnie Johnson:

Our president doesn’t think that we’re in a religious war.  He doesn’t think that this is a religious fight.  He may not even believe in the God of Israel.  But we know Iran believes in the God of Israel–that’s why they hate them so much. …You know, Iran, … Obama is leading you on a path to weaponization that will not prosper. Trust us, nothing he touches prospers. Ask the House in 2008 when he controlled it and lost it in 2010. Ask the Senate when he controlled it in 2012 and lost it in 2014. Ask the Democrats who are supporting this bill now, in 2016 when they feel the Obama touch and the American voters come for them too.

Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL)

Americans - tell all Members of Congress who are voting for the deal that this will be their last vote.

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson:

Don’t do deals with people screaming at the top of their lungs and shouting “death to you.

Israel, the most faithful ally we have.  You know why I love Israel?  Because they wrote the Bible…You know what kind of flesh God became?  Jewish flesh….You never, ever want to put them in unnecessary danger, which this bill will do.

Mark Levin spoke to well-informed conservatives with his fierce eloquence. 

We are here to tell the world that we the American people reject the cowardice and surrender by our government to the genocidal terror regime in Iran. …This enemy makes a grave error in confusing the appeasement of a president and a Democrat party and the capitulation of a Republican Congress with the strength and fortitude of the American people.

Never before has a U.S. president and a political party consented to funding the enemy.

It’s now the Democrat Party of Bill Ayers, Saul Alinsky and Barack Obama.

The Republican Party, particularly their leadership, has abandoned the Constitution and the Treaty Power of the United States Senate. It is recklessly and deliberately avoiding any serious confrontation with a disastrous imperial president. They can stop this.  They can invoke the Treaty Clause right now. They can suspend the filibuster rule and vote against lifting sanctions right now. They can stand between Obama and the Iranian terrorist regime and protect our nation and our allies, but they won’t.

And a final word: Let me warn the 7th-century throwbacks who like to chant ‘Death to America’ in their home country. We Americans have been threatened by better than you. We Americans have been threatened by forces far stronger than you, and we’ve obliterated every damn one of them.

Trump was Trump.  He stressed the danger to Israel, and had some very choice words for Obama, Kerry and Congress, though, as usual, not by name. His best lines:

Never, ever ever in my life have I seen any transaction so incompetently negotiated as our deal with Iran.  And I mean never.

Our president is calling the person who is really the boss in Iran ‘Supreme Leader.   It just came out a little while ago, (Ayatollah Khomeini) said Israel will not exist in 25 years…He also said very very strongly that this is the end of our dealings with the United States…So, they rip us off, they take our money, they make us look like fools, and now they’re back to being who they are. They don’t want Israel to survive…with incompetent leadership like we have right now, Israel will NOT survive.

We are led by very, very stupid people. Very, very stupid people. We cannot let it continue.

Senator Cruz was very impressive.  He was a bigger man than Trump in brainpower, in his detailed knowledge of the deal, and his grasp of just how serious a danger the Obama-Iran Treaty poses to America, as well as Israel.  Unlike Trump (whose message is elect me and I’ll renegotiate the deal”) Cruz stressed there is a way to defeating it in Congress and in the private sector – and that the safety of our nation lies in the hands of Mitch McConnell.

Iran nuclear deal is catastrophic. It is the single greatest national security threat facing America.

This deal … abandons four American hostages in an Iranian hellhole…It is a disgrace for this Administration to abandon Americans…

The one threat on the face of earth capable of murdering 6 million Jews in an instant is a nuclear Iran.

This vote is the most important vote that any Senator or member of Congress will cast in their entire careers.  To every Democratic Senator- do you value the safety and security of the United States of America…the lives of millions of Americans, or do you value party loyalty to the Obama White House?

If this deal goes through, we know to an absolute certainty people will die.  Americans will die, Israelis will die, Europeans will die.

Osama bin Laden never had a 100 billion dollars…We’re giving Ayatollah Khamenei - theocratic, homicidal maniac who hates America every bit as much as bin Laden did – we’re giving him 100 billion dollars to carry out his murderous plan…

If you vote to send billions of dollars to jihadists who have pledged to murder Americans, then you bear responsibility for those murders…You cannot wash your hands of that blood.

There are two men in Washington D.C. who can defeat this deal…Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker Boehner…the President has not handed over the side agreements (as specially required in the Corker bill)…All that needs to happen is for McConnell and Boehner to say, under federal law it is illegal for Obama to life sanctions.

I want to say to every CEO, board of directors and general counsel of every financial institution, every bank that is holding frozen Iranian money.  If this President behaves illegally and directs you to hand over the money to Iran, let me tell you now, this does not exempt you from the legal obligation to follow the law.  Any bank that listens to this President and releases billions to an international terrorist like Ayatollah Khomeini will face billions in damages in civil liability and litigation.  And there will come a President who is not named Barack Obama.

Mitch McConnell and John Boehner can stop this deal if they simply enforce the law.

If Iran gets a nuclear weapon, the single greatest risk is they would put it on a ship anywhere in the Atlantic and they would set off what’s called an EMP, an electromagnetic pulse. It would take down the electrical grid on the entire Eastern seaboard, and kill tens of millions of Americans.

We can stop that… Let’s rise up and tell every elected official in Washington no more talk, no more show votes, get it done: Stop this deal.

We must keep fighting Congress.  The Iran Rally was the kick-off of that effort by patriots who understand the disasters that will follow Obama’s betrayal of our country.  All of us must lobby Congress and let them know:  each and every legislator who votes for this calamitous treaty will be defeated the next time they face the voters.
