President Barack Hussein Obama has made the speculation on Iran deal official by announcing a time frame. Here are a couple of emails relating to yet another Obama screw-up. Here are a couple of emails drumming grassroots activism to confront the Obama decision. The first one is from the Move America Forward people with a specific focus with the website WeStandWithIsrael.org. The second email is from ACT for America’s Brigitte Gabriel.
Time is Running Out to Stop Obama's Bad Deal with Iran!

OBAMA ANNOUNCES SIX MONTH DEAL WITH IRAN STARTS JANUARY 20th!
President Obama has announced that his 6 month plan to ease sanctions and give cash to Iran will commence January 20th!! Although this deal was revealed by Secretary of State John Kerry at the end of last year, this is the first time Obama has officially stated when this deal would take effect.
Obama's plan will give over $7 BILLION TO IRAN in cash and repeal years of sanctions. The administration claims that in exchange Iran will promise to halt their nuclear weapons program but it's unclear when or how that will happen or how this will be verified.
Many Senators aren't buying into Obama's scheme, even ones in his own party! A bipartisan coalition of 59 Senators (Republicans AND Democrats) have signed up to co-sponsor legislation to put new sanctions on Iran and hold their feet to the fire!
SIGN our petition in SUPPORT of these important sanctions on Iran! We have precious little time left to stop Obama's BAD DEAL before he starts handing billions of dollars in cash to one of the most dangerous rogue states in history!
SIGN OUR PETITION and tell your Senators to co-sponsor this bill and encourage them to keep up the fight and to bring this important bill to a vote!
Please sign the petition and use our online system to electronically send letters your state's Senators urging them to join this effort! It's completely free, takes just minutes, and helps the cause!
Just as importantly, forward this email to others NOW.
Our strength will be in our numbers and we need 5 minutes of your time to help us spread the word!
Excerpt from the Petition
President Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry are trying to rush America into a new deal cut with the Iranian radicals.
Iran has consistently lied to the international community for over a decade and hid their nuclear program from UN inspectors! Their promises to stop enriching weapons grade uranium cannot be trusted because it cannot be verified. For years, one after another attempt to assess the Iranian nuclear program have failed due to Iran's lack of cooperation.
In return for a promise of future talks and future negotiation, Kerry gave up $7 billion in US dollars, easing sanctions, and giving Iran a pass to continue enriching uranium until a long term deal can be hammered out. It's a BAD DEAL which gets America nothing and essentially gives Iran a path to develop nukes.
We do not trust them to keep their word!

ACTION ALERT! Protect America from the Iranian Threat!

From ACT for America
There is no issue more vital to America’s national security today than the threat posed by Iran:
• Iran has a nuclear weapons program in which it is enriching uranium in defiance of United Nations resolutions and in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
• Iran has long been acknowledged by the US State Department as the world’s most active terrorist-sponsoring nation, providing support, training, financing and arms to multiple Jihadist organizations, including Hezbollah, HAMAS, Islamic Jihad, and even Al Qaeda.
• Iran was implicated in providing arms to insurgents in Iraq who were battling American troops and has also been identified by US military intelligence as providing arms and assistance to the Taliban forces fighting against US troops in Afghanistan today.
Unfortunately, recent moves by the Obama administration have gone in the direction of easing the economic pressure on Iran by reducing sanctions.
This is a major mistake that will only serve to enrich the terrorist-sponsoring Ayatollahs in Tehran.
The Iranian regime has a long history of dishonesty. Why should America trust the ayatollahs now?
Further, why should we embolden a nation that has clearly articulated its desire to destroy Israel, our closest democratic ally in the Middle East? We should stand by Israel at all times, and the idea of any relaxed sanctions against the Iranian regime, be they temporary or permanent, should be considered an “historic mistake,” as Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu has described them.
Delaying, relaxing, or removing strong sanctions against the Iranian regime will continue the growing perception that the U.S. has become a paper tiger and, further, it will place our most important ally in the Middle East, Israel, in grave danger.
That is exactly where you, ACT! for America’s 270,000-strong members and supporters come in! You have the power to let our elected officials know that national security is important to taxpayers.
Elected officials on the state and federal level commonly tell us that they frequently hear from constituents on “pocketbook” issues but seldom hear from them on security issues, such as the threat of terrorism and nuclear proliferation.
Now is the time to tell your elected representatives in Congress that you want them to remain vigilant to the Iranian threat. Iran must not be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons, and Iran must continue to pay a price for their sponsorship of Jihadist terrorism.
Will you help us today on this issue by taking the important actions noted below?
** Two Important Action Items **
Please contact your U.S. legislators TODAY to express support for the two pieces of legislation noted below. Further, please pass this request on to everyone you know.
