I'm pretty well convinced that they can't think at all.

GOP Senators Probably Broke Law With Iran Letter

...and when they try they get it wrong.

It appears from the letter that the Senators do not understand our constitutional system or the power to make binding agreements. Source

Looks like these guys have finally come to terms with coming in second place for a long time to come. Their response is to attempt to undermine the office of POTUS at every opportunity.

It would seem to me that a much better strategy would be to develop viable candidates who can compete on the national level. . . apparently not! They have clearly given up on that!

Quote:
Asked about the open letter of 47 US Senators to Iranian leaders, the Iranian Foreign Minister, Dr. Javad Zarif, responded that “in our view, this letter has no legal value and is mostly a propaganda ploy. It is very interesting that while negotiations are still in progress and while no agreement has been reached, some political pressure groups are so afraid even of the prospect of an agreement that they resort to unconventional methods, unprecedented in diplomatic history. This indicates that like Netanyahu, who considers peace as an existential threat, some are opposed to any agreement, regardless of its content.”

Zarif expressed astonishment that some members of US Congress find it appropriate to write to leaders of another country against their own President and administration. He pointed out that from reading the open letter, it seems that the authors not only do not understand international law, but are not fully cognizant of the nuances of their own Constitution when it comes to presidential powers in the conduct of foreign policy.

Foreign Minister Zarif added that “I should bring one important point to the attention of the authors and that is, the world is not the United States, and the conduct of inter-state relations is governed by international law, and not by US domestic law. The authors may not fully understand that in international law, governments represent the entirety of their respective states, are responsible for the conduct of foreign affairs, are required to fulfil the obligations they undertake with other states and may not invoke their internal law as justification for failure to perform their international obligations.”
Tell me again which is the third world country???

Rumor has it that the North Koreans have indicated a willingness for the Republicans to help them avoid the sanctions that POTUS has emposed on them as well.

Can ISIL be far behind?

Wouldn't surprise me a bit. The Conservatives have done so well at helping the American people.

Trying to keep the US as the only industrialized country to not have universal health care.

Denied raising the minimum wage to a decent level......but still inefficient with today's costs.

Still trying to use Reagan's Trickle Down economics by giving tax breaks to the wealthy to stimulate the economy.....

But.....they are upholding the Constitution and the freedom of our citizens......unless they are gay or pregnant.

165,000+ Sign Petition to Prosecute GOP Senators for Treason

Quote:
A petition on whitehouse.gov calling for charges to be filed against the 47 senators who sent an open letter to the leaders of Iran, possibly in violation of the Logan Act, has collected more than 165,000 signatures in less than two days.

Because the petition exceeded 100,000 signatures within 30 days, the White House is required to respond.

The creator of this petition, known only by the initials C.H., alleges that the 47 senators “committed a treasonous offense when they decided to violate the Logan Act, a 1799 law which forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.”

When did they try to overthrow the government to warrant treason charges.
