September 10th, 2015 • iizthatiiz

Ted Cruz delivered stern remarks at the ‘Stop The Iran Nuclear Deal’ rally yesterday in Washington D.C.  The Texas Senator had words of warning for Congressional Democrats, Republican leadership, and American financial institutions.


“This Iranian nuclear deal is catastrophic. It is the single greatest national security threat facing America.”

“If it goes through over 100 billion dollars will flow directly to Iran, to the Ayatollah Khamenei.”

“And billions of those dollars will go directly to Hamas, to Hezbollah, to the Houthis, to radical Islamic terrorist across the world.”

“And those jihadists will use those billions to murder Americans.”

“To murder Israelis.” .. “To murder Europeans.”


“We’re now talking about giving the Ayatollah Khamenei, a theocratic homicidal maniac who hates America every bit as much as Bin Laden did, giving him 100 billion dollars to carry out his murderous plan.”

“I want to ask every Senate Democrat, how you will look in the eyes of mothers or fathers or sons or daughters, of those who are murdered by jihadists.”


“And let me be clear. If you vote to send billions of dollars to jihadists who have pledged to murder Americans, then you bear direct responsibility for the murders carried out with the dollars you have given them. You cannot wash your hands of that blood.”


Fate of deal lies with Boehner and McConnell

“Their names are Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker John Boehner.”

“What that means is that all that has to happen is for Mitch McConnell and John Boehner to say, “The Congressional review period has not started. Under Federal law it is illegal for Obama to lift sanctions.”


Cruz Warns Financial Institutions


“Now this is a lawless president.”

“This president would ignore the law and try to lift sanctions.”

“If this president behaves illegally and decrees you can hand that money over to Iran, let me tell you now that does not exempt you from the legal obligation to follow the law.”

“And any bank that listens to this president and releases billions to an international terrorist like the Ayatollah Khamenei will face billions of dollars in civil liability and litigation.”
