Update: Vote in Congress to Oppose Iran Nuke Deal is Imminent!

"And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN." (Daniel 5:25)
Daniel 5:25-27 25 "And this is the inscription that was written: MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

26 This is the interpretation of each word. MENE: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it; 27 TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; 28 PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians."

A Nation Under Judgment . . .

Debate Begins Today in the Senate

Actual Iran deal takes backseat to filibuster talk as Senate opens debate; Senate expected to vote on 9-10 and the House on 9-11

Majority leader calls for Congress not to hide behind 'procedural obfuscation' after Democrats sew up enough support to avoid vote and presidential veto

With bipartisan agreement that Congress is on the brink of a historic vote, the leaders of the Republican and Democratic caucus launched the Senate floor debate on a resolution to nix the Iranian nuclear deal Tuesday, sparring not only over the merits of the landmark pact itself but over the possibility that the Democratic minority might filibuster - and thus block - the final vote.

"I expect that every senator who voted for [the Iran Nuclear Review Act] is now entitled to an up-or-down vote. Not a filibuster or artificial limits on passage, but an important vote on this resolution," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said during his speech, in which he opened the Senate debate over the resolution. "The Senate should not hide behind procedural obfuscation to shield the president or our individual views."
McConnell warned senators that they would be held responsible by their constituents for the results of the controversial deal, signed in July between Iran and the members of the P5+1.

"The president has said that no deal is better than a bad deal, and while he will be out of office in a few months the rest of the country and the world will have to deal with the predictable consequences of that deal for far longer than a year and a half," warned McConnell in the opening address.

. . . The Senate is expected to begin voting on the resolution of disapproval on Thursday, with the House vote to follow on Friday. Between now and then, however, Capitol Hill will be inundated in a flurry of last-minute activity. According to current legislation, Congress must complete voting on the deal by September 17 - and both houses have breaks for the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah scheduled for next week.
On Wednesday, a delegation of Orthodox rabbis will walk the halls of Congress pushing opposition to the deal, while outside the Senate, Republican presidential hopefuls Senator Ted Cruz and billionaire Donald Trump will join the Tea Party Patriots and the Zionist Organization of America in a "Stop the Iran Deal" rally.
Political superstars, including former vice president Dick Cheney, Senator John McCain, and Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton have or will deliver addresses regarding the deal at think tanks across Washington, while last-minute hearings are underway in both Senate and House committees.

- Father God, as we write this prayer alert, it is estimated that several thousand people will soon descend upon Capitol Hill to voice their opposition to this deal with Iran. We ask for a change of heart on the part of those senators who now support this deal, as they see and hear the desperate pleas of our people. Please change the hearts of these senators, Lord, and cause them to change their votes. In the name of Jesus Christ we offer this prayer, amen and amen.
