KEN: So now, after we’re… You know, you look at — and I happen to think Joe Biden is a puppet of China. So when you look at the big players that we should be concerned about on the national stage, I think China and Iran are biggies. Big, big, biggies. I know you’re supposed to believe that it’s always Russia, Russia, Russia.
But historically, if you break it open, you’ll see that China has really infiltrated this country and this culture more than you can — and I’m talking about the communist Chinese, to be clear about that. I like to say that, because when we have these discussions — whether it’s Russia, whether it’s another country — we are talking about the leadership of these countries and the political ideology of these countries.
We’re not talking about the everyday citizens like you and me. So we don’t want communist Chinese influence. We don’t want that Mao ideology. That’s the pushback, and it’s one more thing that’s always taken out of context when people are quoting us in these discussions. So let’s go back to the fact… You may remember Obama’s nuclear pact with Iran. Well, guess what? Biden wants to redo it. Here’s Rush.
RUSH: John Bolton, did you hear what he said, Snerdley? He said (impression), “Letter schmetter. I mean, a letter’s fine, but that’s not what the story is. The story is Obama, with this deal with Iran, is surrendering to Iran. That’s what Obama’s Iran deal is, and I was immediately reminded of what Dr. Sowell said to me in an interview with the Limbaugh Letter.
And he told me — I still can’t believe this — he said, “Imagine we wake up one day and New York or Chicago has been devastated by an Iran nuclear weapon.” He said, “Obama would surrender.” What do you mean, surrender? Obama’s not gonna fight?
That’s what he said was his number one concern. So when I saw Bolton essentially characterize the deal Obama wants to do with Iran, securing them a nuclear weapon, giving them permission, giving them time to do it, Bolton said (paraphrasing), “Obama’s surrendering. The letter is fine and dandy for what it is, but that’s not the story.
The reason for the letter is precisely that Obama’s surrendering.” Now, this group of Republicans. “A group of 47 Republican senators has written an open letter to Iran’s leaders warning them that any nuclear deal they sign with President Barack Obama’s administration won’t last after Obama leaves office.
Organized by freshman Senator Tom Cotton and signed by the chamber’s entire party leadership as well as potential 2016 presidential contenders Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, the letter is meant not just to discourage the Iranian regime from signing a deal but also to pressure the White House into giving Congress some authority over the process.”
Well, this is not sitting well with the Democrat Party. Let’s get to the truth of the matter. The letter is one thing, but it’s peanuts, says John Bolton. The deal that Obama is negotiating with Iran is surrender. Exactly what Dr. Thomas Sowell said he feared from Obama in this Iranian nuke deal.
We finally have some people that don’t appear to be intimidated by Democrats and the media. “Joe Biden, as Barack Obama’s own secretary of defense has said, has been wrong about nearly every foreign policy and national security decision in the last 40 years,” Cotton said today. That was a reference to Robert Gates, the former secretary of defense who ripped Bite Me in his memoir after leaving office.
He said that Biden “has been wrong about nearly every foreign policy and national security decision in the last 40 years.” So Biden’s been out there complaining and whining and moaning about this letter, and Cotton said, what does he know about foreign policy?
“Moreover, if Joe Biden respects the dignity of the institution of the Senate he should be insisting that the president submit any deal to approval of the Senate, which is exactly what he did on numerous deals during his time in Senate.” Of course, Obama is gonna go around Congress on this, like he is on as much as he can.
KEN: You know what’s scary about this? And we should recognize this by now, and Rush has pointed this out — he pointed it out for decades — that the Democrats use the same playbook, they play the same cards, they have the same, for the most part, foreign policy agenda. And they operate from a position of weakness.
But we should realize that here this was 2015-2016, and history’s just repeating itself. Again, I mentioned Susan Rice, because she was the national security adviser to President Barack Obama, after she was, I believe, ambassador to the U.N. I forget the exact years. But it was quite a time. And keep in mind, Susan Rice, she was the one that oversaw the Benghazi lie.
That’s the other thing. They just… The Democrats will keep recycling their leftist friends so they can keep running these narratives because they know Susan Rice will cover for John Kerry. John Kerry will cover for Obama. Obama will cover for Hillary. Hillary will cover for Biden.
Do you see how it works? As they weaken what stronger leaders have built. But when you think about this, I want you to think for a moment the last time you saw Joe Biden at a press conference. It was once in the last several months. Do you want him negotiating on the world stage?
