McConnell Undermining US Credibility: "deliberately attempting to destroy the full faith and credit of the United States" (Picture, Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Exactly six years and three months ago, Republicans embarked on the unprecedented political strategy of plotting to deliberately undermine any and everything Barack Obama attempted to do as President of the United States. In January 2009 it was undermining the new President’s attempt to save America’s economy after Bush Republicans nearly destroyed it and they have continued their efforts unabated two years into Obama’s second term. Whether it was deliberately attempting to destroy the full faith and credit of the United States, or align with a foreigner to subvert a crucial United Nations agreement to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, there is no length too extreme for Republicans to undermine a President they hate because he is African American.

Now, taking a page out of a freshman Senator Tom Cotton’s playbook, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell issued a threat to the world’s nations that America is an exceptionally deceitful country that cannot be trusted to honor its pledge to reduce carbon emissions and help diminish the devastating effects of global climate change. McConnell release his warning directly after President Obama announced America’s ‘official plan‘ to cut the nation’s greenhouse emissions by as much as 28 percent according to an agreement brokered by the United Nation’s with the world’s leading polluters. It is bad enough that in service to the Koch brothers Republicans are waging a ferocious war to prevent carbon emission reduction policies at home, but to warn other nations America cannot be trusted is beyond the pale; and a relatively new and despicable tactic of Republicans to interfere with the Constitutional authority of the Executive Branch.

McConnell’s statement issued Tuesday warned signatories to the U.N. brokered agreement to “proceed with caution” before pledging to cut their own nation’s carbon emissions because America will not meet its own goals; a portent that Republicans will continue their Koch-funded war on the Environmental Protection Agency, America’s economy, and the people’s health and welfare. McConnell said, “Even if the job-killing and illegal Clean Power Plan were fully implemented, the United States could not meet the targets laid out in this proposed new plan. Our international partners should proceed with caution before entering into a binding, unattainable deal.”

First, notice that McConnell claimed the agreement the President made with foreign nations is illegal, and a further Republican assertion that this African American President, unlike a white Republican, cannot negotiate with foreign nations regardless he is the legal head of the Executive Branch of government. This is precisely what 47 Senate Republicans claimed when they issued an open letter to Iranian leaders warning them that any nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama Administration will not be honored. In fact, McConnell issuing a statement to foreign nations that America will not honor its agreement over carbon emissions is no different than the traitorous-47’s letter to Iranian hardliners at the behest of the foreigner Benjamin Netanyahu. It is further proof that Republicans not only regard the elected head of the Executive Branch is himself illegal,  anything he does is illegal; for McConnell to warn foreign nations in that sense is reprehensible.  MOREHERE
