US Auto Industry Bailout In Jeopardy After Senate Votes It Down

Folks, this is Failure Theater at it’s freakin finest. It doesn’t get better than this.

Obama is circulating a resolution for UN Security Council consideration that implements the Iran deal announced earlier in the week.

The United States on Wednesday circulated a draft resolution to the U.N. Security Council that would endorse the Iran nuclear deal but retain an arms embargo and ban on ballistic missile technology, said diplomats ahead of a likely vote next week.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power briefed the 15-member council on the draft document behind closed doors.

The deal reached on Tuesday in Vienna with Iran was negotiated by Germany, the European Union and the five permanent, veto-wielding members of the Security Council – the United States, Russia, China, Britain and France.

In return for lifting sanctions, Iran agreed to long-term curbs on a nuclear program that the West suspected was aimed at creating an atomic bomb, but which Tehran says is peaceful.

The seven-page draft, seen by Reuters, states that the seven previous U.N. resolutions onIran will be terminated when the International Atomic Energy Agency submits a report verifying Iran has implemented certain nuclear-related measures.

Corker plans on starting Senate debate on the Iran deal next week with a vote in September.

But by the time the Senate gets around to voting, the UN sanctions will be lifted. Corker is miffed.  

 

In the meantime, Corker is being treated with respect and deference by the administration and his Senate colleagues.
