File charges against the 47 U.S. Senators in violation of The Logan Act in attempting to undermine a nuclear agreement. On March 9th, 2015, forty-seven United States 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. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.

At a time when the United States government is attempting to reach a potential nuclear agreement with the Iranian government, 47 Senators saw fit to instead issue a condescending letter to the Iranian government stating that any agreement brokered by our President would not be upheld once the president leaves office.

This is a clear violation of federal law. In attempting to undermine our own nation, these 47 senators have committed treason.

''Netanyahu: He Came... He Saw... He Conquered. - The Power of Israel over the United States'' http://www.globalresearch.ca/netanyahu-he-came-he-saw-he-conquered-the-power-of-israel-over-the-united-states/5435571

The Republicans want to give a blank check to Obama AND to any future president to fight ISIS and al-Qaida everywhere and forever. And they want the United States to treat Iran as we should have treated Nazi Germany had Hitler been about to get the bomb but that would be paranoid delusions at this time.

But if the GOP platform takes the neocon-Nutjobyahoo line that we must all not only fight ISIS and the ghosts of al-Qaida .. but also Iran and Syria too, then The Republicans will imperil not just America but the wider world with it.No point mentioning Hillary Clinton here now - and giving us all another headache.

Also see - "Iran Is Not The Problem" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8Jg41szSg4 - a film made by Americans FOR Americans trying to get over and around the deep anti-Iran bias of US Corporate MSM. This thoughtful documentary is 8 years old but is still perfectly appropriate and timely. Please watch it.
