I thought that the Republicans’ unfrequented act of sedition, the Butcher Bibi Show, marked the limit of how far the Republican Party would go in their unconstitutional sabotage of the President’s responsibility to conduct foreign policy. I was wrong. Now Republicans are actually reaching out and directly threatening a party to those negotiations.
Republican senators warned Iran on Monday that any nuclear deal made with U.S. President Barack Obama could last only as long as he remains in office, in an unusual intervention into U.S. foreign policy-making.
The letter, signed by 46 U.S. senators, says Congress plays a role in ratifying international agreements and points out that Obama will leave office in January 2017, while many in Congress will remain in Washington long after that.
"We will consider any agreement regarding your nuclear-weapons program that is not approved by the Congress as nothing more than an executive agreement between President Obama and Ayatollah Khamenei," the letter read.
"The next president could revoke such an executive agreement with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of an agreement at any time," it read.
The letter, first reported by Bloomberg News, followed a speech to a joint meeting of Congress last week by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who warned that the United States was negotiating a "bad deal" with Tehran.
It comes as world powers have been negotiating with Iran to try to reach some form of understanding by the end of March before a final deal in June that could ease crippling sanctions that have crippled Iran’s economy…

These Republicans are conducting their foreign sabotage the same way they do domestically: with lies. Republicans know that they have a short time with a power advantage, because the outlook for 2016 is as favorable for Democrats as 2014 was for Republicans. In all probability there will be Congress far more amenable to backing up the policies of a Democratic President. How can I be confident that we will have a Democratic President? We have no alternative. If the Republicans win the White House, the Fascist Five Injustices of SCROTUS will become the SS Six or Stranglehold Seven. If that happens, America will be over.
As for the graphical question, it most assuredly is sedition.
