Here we have a claim that Iran will not only make and use nuclear weapons, but will use them against the United States. I'm just going to let the extremeness of that claim sink in.

The reality is that there is no better Iran deal, and those calling for one never offer a viable plan on how to get there. In fact, the real alternative is war, which will come at tremendous cost.

Be Jewish and Stay Quiet

As a Jew, Schumer is not allowed to "break ranks" and make up his own mind based on his clear thinking. In doing so, he is clearly an "Israel-firster" and a "Netanyahu marionette".

Chuck Schumer's Position on Iran Is Reckless

Nathan Gonzalez | Posted 08.11.2015 | World
Nathan Gonzalez

Opponents of the Iran deal have been unable to produce a viable alternative. That is because there really are no alternatives left. Should the Iran deal collapse under the weight of spoilers like Schumer, Iran will get a nuclear weapon. And once Iran achieves and announces that capability to the world, no expert will be able to foresee the consequences.

Sen. Schumer, Your Work Is Far From Over

Take the opportunity to do what you do best -- roll up your sleeves and get to work on these important issues that need to be addressed no matter what happens in the coming weeks.

Netanyahu and His Marionettes

David Bromwich | Posted 08.12.2015 | Politics

Chuck Schumer has often said, with an artless self-love, that his name in Hebrew, "shomer," means "guardian"; and he takes pride in the fact because he thinks of himself as the appointed guardian of Israel's interests in the US. How bizarre and unprecedented this is! Think of any other nation in the world. Imagine an Italian-American named Frank Consiglieri assuring his listeners that his name means "advocate" in Italian and he is supremely vigilant for the interests of Italy as a lawmaker in the US. Schumer voted for the Iraq war on a rationale similar to the one he now urges as the path of reason and good sense with Iran. He may or may not recognize that he is only assisting the Likud and the neoconservatives with part three of the Middle East "clean break" strategy: Iraq, Syria, Iran.

Since the media have been regularly reporting on indictments and investigations of corporate crime and those responsible for billions of dollars through illegal activity, it becomes apparent that these rich and powerful figures, who now have "the best government money can buy," enjoy a "law of the rulers" instead of the "rule of law" for which many Americans have fought and died.
